From the Washington Post:

Can American democracy self-correct? The pervasive, distorting power of white-male privilege.

By Jared Bernstein

Jared Bernstein, a former chief economist to Vice President Joe Biden, is a senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and author of ‘The Reconnection Agenda: Reuniting Growth and Prosperity’.

Note that this author’s claim to fame is that he was an aide to that prominent Woman of Color: Joe Biden.

October 8 at 6:00 AM

As a service to my readers, I try to stay in my political-economy lane, sticking to the intersection of politics, social justice and economics. …

One of the most revealing moments of this dark, historical moment occurred on the day when both Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh testified about his alleged attack on her decades ago. While she was calm, credible and forthright, he was the opposite, a towering inferno of privileged, white, male rage. …

Consider this same dynamic — affluent white men judging those who’ve suffered some form of oppression — in other political debates. …

Such examples reveal that Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is not some anomaly. It’s merely the latest case of how the distorting power of white privilege defines today’s politics and policy, at great cost to women, minorities, immigrants and any other subset of Americans not represented by the majority senators on the Judiciary Committee and their partisan brethren. …

I just spoke to a family member, a sister who has always been driven by an acute and empathic moral compass. Though she’s never gotten deeply into politics, I’ve never heard her so angry, woke and politically activated.

Our conversation reminded me of Rebecca Traister’s new, timely book, “Good and Mad,” in which she zeros in on this “nexus of women’s anger and American politics, about how the particular dissatisfactions and resentments of America’s women have often ignited movements for social change and progress . . . how an impulse that many women have taken pains to hide or disguise or distance themselves from — the impulse to be really mad — has been crucial in determining their political power and social standing, how women’s rage has played parts in revolutionary social movements …”

We are again at a historical moment where such anger is powerful, important and justified. The question is whether American democracy has devolved to a point where it can no longer self-correct, where there is simply no channel or mechanism left by which those longing for justice can achieve it.

In just about a month, we shall have one answer to that question.

If the Democrats manage to boot away this midterm election that they ought to dominate, will it occur to them that all their screams of hate at the white race didn’t help? In particular, would Jewish Democrats have the self-awareness to notice that they’ve got a worsening problem with their animus against white gentiles and that it would be in their electoral interests to tone down the hate rhetoric a little? Would any gentile Democrat, such as Bernstein’s old boss Joe Biden, have the courage to ask Jewish Democrats to dial back the bigotry a bit in the name of not botching the Democratic Party’s chances at winning?

  1. Maybe if they call her credible enough times they’ll start to believe it, too.

    Political consultants are the least creative people on the planet it seems. To Democratic ones, it is always 1991 and Clarence Thomas – just get women and hopefully blacks riled up enough and you’ll win. To Republican ones, for years until Trump it was always George Bush vs. Michael Dukakis – just out folksy the other guy and you’ll win.

    Never mind if it didn’t work in any particular election, it was because you didn’t play the female/race card or the folksy card hard enough. Just triple down next time.

    People like this Bernstein are playing with the only mental cards they have.

  3. In my own profession, what I see everyday is that all of the men getting close to retirement, and by all I mean of 95% of them, are white. The people being hired to replace them are probably 75% POC; browns, blacks, with some ME sprinkled in. Of the remaining 25% of new hires that are white, 90% of those are over the age of 40. All of the quality control people are Indian.

    This is precisely why they’re pulling out all the stops in getting white women on board their HateTrain. You see it in endless articles like this, but more effectively in HateTrain MSM entertainment like “The Handmaids Tale.” Easier to make things up when the facts don’t co-operate.

    Of course she’s credible. She’s a woman! The whole point of women is that we’re supposed to believe them. Now, it doesn’t take much effort to believe them when they’re obviously telling the truth, now does it?

    Therefore the real way to show your solidarity is to make a grand show of believing them when they’re obviously lying. That’s how you get on the side of the angels, not incidentally gaining the opportunity to engage in some preening and not incidentally bringing along some “undecideds” along with you.

    Granted that last bit is made easier and more effective with the help of a “megaphone”. Reason #6281 why they will never ever give up the megaphone.

    A few weeks ago, on RadioDerb, John said he hoped the Democrats didn’t get shellacked too badly in the mid-terms as that might cause them to dial down their extremist views in time to win the 2020 presidential election. It was one of the few times listening to the Derb that I thought he was totally missing the picture.

    The Democrats can no longer control their slavering hatred of the Badwhites, even if it is in their best interest to do so. If they didn’t vent that hatred their heads would explode.

  24. When do I get to read the article on Jewish Male Privilege by Courtland Worthington III?

  25. This reminds me of the column by Irish-American Matthew Dowd to which Steve called attention last week.

    Maybe Bernstein and Dowd are trying subtly to sneak into the WASP boys club.

  26. Joe Biden is a disgusting globalizer rat who strongly supported George W Bush’s Iraq War debacle.

    Joe Biden pushes nation-wrecking mass legal immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders.

    Joe Biden supports sovereignty-sapping trade deal scams that harm US workers.

    Joe Biden supports the concentration of wealth and the concentration of corporate media power in the United states.

    Joe Biden is a disgusting Leprechaun lech who is constantly pawing women who don’t want to be pawed. The Biden named Joe is a sicko!

    I am such a gentleman that I did everything in my power to protect and defend then-Governor Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire from the grabby and huggy octopus arms of Joe Biden. Unfortunately, our Maggie seems to have fallen for the blarney crud from Biden, and she was photographed hugging Biden back. Maggie, how could you?

    At least this broad Maggie wants to be hugged by Biden, other broads of all ages ain’t so sweet on getting hugged and pawed by Biden.

  27. Jared Bernstein benefits from the distorting power of Jewish privilege.

  28. Zoodles says:

    Self Correcting Democracy = Bowing to progressive Jewish power.

  29. So let’s recapitulate. A young gal voluntarily went to a kegger. She drank so much she couldn’t recall how she got there or how she got home, what the house looked like or who was there. She drank so much she experienced what is popularly called “a blackout”. And while she was getting drunk she became uninhibited and playful. Some guy misread the signals and put the moves on her. She pushed him away.

    Thirty six years later the appearance of the guy’s name in the media triggers a spark in her brain which leads to her dimly recalling the party–or what little she can remember of it, to whit, the part about the guy making out with her and fumbling with her clothes. She, seeking notoriety, goes public with dubious claims to being tormented by the dim recollections evoked. For coming forth with her accusations (which enjoy the status of being both unprovable and unfalsifiable i.e. fable) she is paid a lot of money and earns praise and kudos from her political faction.

    Only a society thoroughly distorted by the pervasive power of white-female privilege could have brought us to the point at which a young man’s bumbling pawing of a young woman has become the focus of so much angst and the pivot upon which public policy turns. This would have been impossible two hundred or two thousand years ago. It would be unthinkable in Mexico or Iran today.

    If this is any indication of what women bring to the table, then they will have to step back and reassess their approach. Women! We expect better from you! Shape up!

    That indeed has been the process. It began slowly, in the last century. The VA hospitals, for example, began importing physicians whose ancestry is from the Indian subcontinent, while also doing double time to hire and promote as many blacks as possible.

    Academia was doing it, across the disciplines. By the mid-1990s, PhD programs were bragging about the bright students they had from non-white countries who were going to be America’s next great English professors and professors of English and American history. Law and Med schools, like MBA and Master of Public Administration programs, were seeing double and then triple the number of students who were non-white of new immigrant parents or were themselves citizens of other countries. Heterosexual white males who were not rich began finding it extremely difficult to get admitted to such programs and even harder to have a career if they managed to get in and were not run off for not toeing the PC line.

    WASP Elites have only gotten richer all this time. Just like their Jewish allies.

  33. “would Jewish Democrats have the self-awareness to notice that they’ve got a worsening problem with their animus against white gentiles?”

    No.

    Some years ago, Steve wisely counseled that everyone admit that the Democratic Party was in reality the black party, and just let the natural consequences follow of the Dems sleeping in the bed they chose to make. Is it now time to counsel everyone to admit that the Democratic Party is in fact the white genocide party, and just let everyone stake out their position as to whether they are for or against white genocide?

    Will Bernstein & Co. take their white hatred to its logical conclusion and call for the Final Solution to the White Question, or will they be boxed into saying something in favor of white people?

    It could be enlightening.

    But according to the ISEA study, automation will most likely hit Las Vegas in the places most visitors don’t see — like the back offices and fast food kitchens. Johannes Moenius, an economist at the University of Redlands, coauthored that research.

    “Women will most likely be hit first,” said Johannes Moenius, an economist at the University of Redlands and coauthor of the ISEA study. And, given the makeup of the hospitality industry, minorities are also at risk of losing their jobs first, said Moenius.

    That’s why the Culinary Union — which represents about 57,000 hospitality workers in Las Vegas, the majority of them women and Hispanic — made it a point to include language in its latest contract to protect its members from automation.

    That’s rich. From a Beltway hack who worked for that towering inferno of privileged, white, male rage, the creepy vulgarian Joe Biden.

    Years ago I was sitting in Union Station waiting for a train. I was reading a book. The station was quiet, almost serene. And then out of nowhere I hear this bellowing voice hurling f-bombs and invective at the lackeys who were accompanying him. It was Gasbag Joe Biden! Just off a train from Delaware. Up close and personal I was saturated with privileged, white male rage.

    Hmm… Sanctimonious Jared Bernstein was one of Biden’s lackeys. And in a perversely ironic way, Biden is probably his reference for white male privilege…

  36. about how the particular dissatisfactions and resentments of America’s [well-to-do] women have often ignited movements for social change and progress

    Funny how they miss the details.

  37. I have been saying this for years and years:

    Corrupt Leprechaun scum such as Joe Biden, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly are in bed with the Globalizer Jew element within the WASP/JEW ruling class of the American Empire.

    Most particularly, it is seen in the Boston — New York — Philadelphia region, but it is readily apparent in some of the Jew-controlled corporate propaganda outlets.

    Some of them are entertaining.

  38. “While she was calm, credible and forthright, he was the opposite, a towering inferno of privileged, white, male rage. …”

    Keep in mind, this is a former senior policy advisor to a former Vice President, the number two Big Man for our country (at least ceremonially).

    And he sounds like a 21 year old Gender Studies major.

    And he is a confirmed anti-white bigot and man-hater.

    The Left loves to traffic in those “crazy right wingers,” e.g. Alex Jones, but last I checked, Mr. Jones is not a U.S. Senator or Chairman of the RNC.

  42. OFF TOPIC

    Leprechaun politician whore Joe Biden and Jew economic con artist Jared Bernstein are typical of the kind of horrible people who are in the politics, media and economics line of work.

    I am still FUMING about Pat Buchanan being fired from the Comcast TV outlet MSNBC.

    Why isn’t Trump making more of a fuss about the outrageous anti-White crap in the corporate media?

    Pat Buchanan was fired by Comcast/NBC because Buchanan was talking about nation-wrecking mass immigration and its demographic repercussions.

    Joe Biden and Jared Bernstein Push mass immigration.

    Mass immigration lowers wages, increases housing costs, swamps schools, overwhelms hospitals and harms the environment.

  43. Berstein:

    “The question is whether American democracy has devolved to a point where it can no longer self-correct”

  44. Something that I have thought about, but have seen no one mention is what if this confirmation debacle chastens Kavanaugh and he decides that he needs to be more “moderate” in order to make the right people like him and write about him in a more favorable way?

    The second point is that if the wall does not get built, the left will win no matter who constitutes SCOTUS or wins an election. It will take more than the wall, but the wall is a necessary pre-requisite.

    Finally, since Steve has touched upon this in other posts and it’s a solid observation, I think he should flesh it out. It could be called something like “The New Sanhedrin as Charles Manson.” If you’ll recall, the late LA County Deputy DA Vincent Bugliosi theorized that Manson’s plot was to have his “family” kill several prominent white people and leave evidence implicating black people as the perpetrators. At some point a race war would begin and blacks would somehow win; however they wouldn’t be smart enough to effectively run the country, so Manson would emerge from his hidden lair and take control. It seems to me at times that certain Jewish leftists have unconsciously embraced just this sort of plan: overwhelm whites with non-whites or people who identify as non-white, have themselves (Jewish people) classified as non-white, lump all other whites together (Catholics are WASPs, white women are Becky’s, etc.) as the cause of the problems we face, demean and ostracize all whites. Once the plan succeeds, some kind of effective leadership will be needed. Guess who that will fall to? Sure, there are lots of problems with it, but it’s certainly more pragmatic than Manson’s scheme ever was.

  45. Ibound1 says:

    [W]ould Jewish Democrats have the self-awareness to notice that they’ve got a worsening problem with their animus against white gentiles?”

    Absolutely not. Democrats of any religion or ethnicity do not understand how they sound to the average normal person. They sound utterly deranged, close to, if not actually, insane.

    Has anyone checked this guy’s bio out?

    Bernstein graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the Manhattan School of Music where he studied double bass…. He earned a master’s degree in Social Work from the Hunter College School of Social Work, and, from Columbia University, he received a master’s degree in Philosophy and a Ph.D. in Social Welfare

    His economic theory states that although free trade in musical instruments will produce optimum Pareto Efficiency, it will not ensure proper appreciation of the double bass among low income immigrants.

    That tells you something right there

    white males are a fading demographic. And that is good news for the rest of the country. and I’m a white male. 🙂

    Equality feels like oppression when you have been the ones previously holding all the power. The truth is that white men just are not that good. No wonder white girls are attracted to Men of Color

    I think there will be a corrective after the midterms. True americans are mad as hell at white men for putting a rapist on the supreme court and not doing right. Even Taylor Swift has come out in support of democrats!

  49. Screwtape says:

    “white male _____” = bad.

    “Coalition of Fringe _____” = good.

    Judge K’s “rage” is bad, illegal; the rage of the unhinged woman is good, legal.

    If only white men actually raged. Like if only the Patriarchy were a real thing and men could just pimp hand this whole collective tantrum back into the kitchen.

    The megaphone always conflates female empowerment with what it actually is: the swollen amygdala tantrums of those who have disempowered themselves in the holiness spirall of their leftist death cult.

    Their highest concern is the unimpeded ability of women to kill their unborn babies.

    Their next highest concern is making sure that any non white person in the world can come here and collect cash and prizes, including many from cultures that agitate for women to STFU, make babies, and obey their male owners.

    Sounds like a great antidote to all this horrible WM privilege.

    I look forward to actual rage from white men. Most I encounter are total pussies who avoid voicing anything but party approved lines and shy away from conflict at every turn. Especially when it comes to women.

    Which is exactly how males are programmed in this sick culture.

    Go ahead, keep poking the lion. We need to suss out men with chests.

  50. Jack D says:

    This has to be seen in the context of the upcoming election. The campaign against K failed in its primary objective (keeping K off the court) but a secondary objective was to rile up the D base, especially white females who were seen to be not holding up their end of the Coalition of the Fringes. “Too many” white women were voting Republican and this was damaging D prospects – blacks vote almost 100% D but they are less than 15% of the population and don’t turn out for off year elections. Getting the women’s vote is critical. They would still like to squeeze this lemon a little bit to see if they can get some election year juice out of it. As soon as the election is over, they will drop it (at least until the next election).

    Of course, the 2ndary objective isn’t going so hot either – while they (maybe) succeeded in riling up committed D voters, they did not anticipate (they never do) that they would also rile up a backlash among the people that they keep calling deplorable. An ideal tactic is one that riles up your base but keeps the other side’s voters home so the K issue turned out to be far from ideal. Not only have they riled up Republicans, but their tactic only reminds non-whites that they hate white women just as much as (maybe even more than) white men.

    This guy also seems to have an ambivalent attitude toward anger. OTOH, he views privileged white male rage as being bad, but the anger of females (even if they are privileged white females) is righteous and good. So he is clearly not against anger as a tool and a political motivator in principle. He just wants the anger confined to the “right” people. Unfortunately for him, life doesn’t work that way – if you try to rile up your own supporters (for example by calling the other side’s supporters rapists) then the other side is going to hear you too and perhaps get kind of angry themselves.

    Basing your political platform on “anger” is a crude tactic – it is a base emotion and the tool of demagogues. If you remember Obama’s campaign posters they said “HOPE” on them, not anger (and Bill Clinton was the Man from Hope). Really successful politicians in America appeal to the “better angels of our nature”. Although Dems like to twist Trump’s words and make it seem as if he is appealing to anger, he really has a fundamentally optimistic vision for an America that is peaceful and prosperous, not one riven by anger.

    He needs to read Richard Heier’s recent book. Who knows about Neanderthals — or elephants — but within humans brain size correlates strongly with intelligence, specifically cortical volume. Women have smaller brains than men, on average, but thicker cortexes. Beyond that they think it’s more due to intra-brain connections, the fewer the better.

    Skull volume has a weaker correlation than brain volume, which is weaker than cortical surface area, which is weaker than cortical volume. But they all correlate to IQ. MRI imaging combined with automated image analysis (edge detection, etc.) has allowed this area of research to flourish.

  54. Bernstein:

    “As a service to my readers, I try to stay in my political-economy lane, sticking to the intersection of politics, social justice and economics.”

    “Social justice” is one of those useful tells.

    Justice, by definition, is already social, so what is the point of the redundant “social” prefix? It is shorthand for “socialist”. So “social justice” is not justice at all, but merely coercive Bolshevism.

    As a Bolshevik totalitarian, nothing is actually outside of Mr. Bernstein’s “political-economy lane”, so he’s being disingenuous to pretend otherwise. Indeed, he is being disingenuous to pretend that he wishes to render any service to his readers at all, other than dispossessing them, but I guess it’s their own fault if they choose to believe this conman.

    So when Mr. Bernstein laments that

    “there is simply no channel or mechanism left by which those longing for justice can achieve it.”

    What he really means is that the habitual channels of his Bolshevik project are being choked off, and he wants you to open them back up for him.

  55. On more than one occasion in recent months, I’ve heard friends, usually either Jews or white women, casually use the term “white male” either as a self-evident disqualification or in cavalier dismissal of further discussion of a political or social issue. These are otherwise normal, successful people, but of a liberal political persuasion. The pejorative use of the term is quickly getting normalized by a whole section of the elites to signal how woke they are.

    Will some billionaires on the right please step up and buy inexpensive, but major media properties such as the Washington Post or the New York Times? Bezos and Slim were clever in being early to the game and preempting the right, but surely there is still time to maneuver to isolate and brand” The Narrative” as “Their Narrative?”

    Of course, the 2ndary objective isn’t going so hot either – while they (maybe) succeeded in riling up committed D voters, they did not anticipate (they never do) that they would also rile up a backlash among the people that they keep calling deplorable. An ideal tactic is one that riles up your base but keeps the other side’s voters home so the K issue turned out to be far from ideal. Not only have they riled up Republicans, but their tactic only reminds non-whites that they hate white women just as much as (maybe even more than) white men.

    Jack, I don’t think that they can’t or won’t anticipate the rubber band effect, it’s just that from their worldview “backlash” by whites they’ve been irritating is seen as illegitimate and yet more evidence that whites are racist/privileged/whatever the new jargon is. It’s a self-fulfilling prophesy that provides experience to support the narrative in which all non-prog white men are “angry white men” scared of losing their “unearned and unfair privilege.”

    It’s quite similar to the way in which constant agitation against normal white people begets some fraction of white people to embrace things like non-PC and ethnic humor, Confederate history, the battle flag, and in extreme cases NAZI LARPing. Then, all of these data points are used to feed the narrative that lots of white people are racists and NAZIs just waiting to overthrow the United States government and open concentration camps. Roughly 100 or so LARPers in Charlottesville was the most important metric of white racism in the United States for well over a year.

    Do they have the self-awareness to realize the Trump administration is fervently pro-Israel? According to this recent opinion piece in Haaretz, the Trump administration is becoming frustrated at American Jews for not supporting him even though he has been very pro-Israel.

    The annual assessments of the Jewish People Policy Institute rarely tell us stuff we don’t know. But the latest report, presented to the Israeli government and published on the JPPI’s website earlier this month, did include a paragraph that caught the eye of some journalists.

    “Israel and U.S. Jewish organizations should sharpen their awareness,” the report noted – “of a trend of growing frustration within the Trump administration that the president’s pro-Israel moves (especially the transfer of the embassy to Jerusalem) are not sufficiently appreciated by large segments of the American Jewish community.”

    This is a basically nice way of saying that Donald Trump and his sycophantic toadies are unimpressed that the majority of American Jews are grown-up enough and sufficiently informed to see that his “pro-Israel” policies may help the Likud government in the short-term, but certainly won’t ensure Israel’s long-term security and peace with its neighbors.

    Harry, it seems to me you’ve hit upon precisely why Ford and her enablers/accomplices need to be prosecuted in a formal way.

    The zeitgeist on the Left right now is that the Kav confirmation means that “Women don’t matter. Sexual assault doesn’t matter.”

    (NB: I just read those words quoted from an actress whose only possible interest to anyone is her lovely décolletage, but who was being treated like the Oracle at Delphi for her solemn pronouncement on the matter of the day.)

    That’s how the Left works: by moving deftly from the particular (Ford’s accusation, which is objectively either true or false) to the general (the statement that sexual assault happens, or is sometimes overlooked when it happens, which cannot be gainsaid). You can see that Ford herself is already receding into the mists for them; as a loser, she’s of no public value any longer. And since she’s not a “genuine martyr” like Michael Brown or Travon Martin–who because they are dead can be eternally romanticized–there’s the lingering danger that Ford’s future words and actions will disappoint or demoralize the faithful.

    So from the Left’s perspective, it’s better that focus moves away from the particular, so it doesn’t discredit the Narrative.

    I realize, of course, that for the True Believer, the Narrative prevails even if all the particular evidence is against it. But we’re not trying to convert the True Believer. We’re trying to persuade Normie that True Believer is nuts, a liar, and not a person to hitch your destiny to. Formal consequences, a prosecution, leading to a recanting on Ford’s part, would be strong persuasion in that regard. It would keep the Narrative confined to the hysterical margins.

  72. Some years ago, Steve wisely counseled that everyone admit that the Democratic Party was in reality the black party, and just let the natural consequences follow of the Dems sleeping in the bed they chose to make. Is it now time to counsel everyone to admit that the Democratic Party is in fact the white genocide party, and just let everyone stake out their position as to whether they are for or against white genocide?

    I don’t think the Democrats really are “the black party”. As an ethnic party, they are the Jewish party. The Jews call the shots, set policy, write the propaganda, run the campaigns, contribute the money and reap the rewards. The blacks are pawns, cannon fodder–a vote bank bought with some welfare, some AA, lax law enforcement and bundles of grievance propaganda. More broadly the Democrats are “the parasite party”. They represent the WallStreet-Washington axis of evil and more broadly all the rent-seekers and blood suckers working through or enabled by the super-state. But “the black party” is nonetheless pretty great.

    But the problem isn’t that these tags “black party”, “parasite party”, “white-genocide party” wouldn’t be effective. It’s that Republican politicians are such a bunch of utter whimps and refuse to acknowledge the enemy they face, who is perfectly willing to throw every epithet in the world at them.

    Although Bernstein attacks all “privileged white males”, he is implicitly saying “present company excepted”.

In anyone one of the Left’s hate filled rants, if you substitute the word “Jewish” for “white” the rant instantly goes from being wonderfully woke to being radioactively anti-Semitic. Just try it with any anti-white pronouncement. Here’s Bernstein:

    While she was calm, credible and forthright, he was the opposite, a towering inferno of privileged, Jewish, male rage. …

    Consider this same dynamic — affluent Jewish men judging those who’ve suffered some form of oppression — in other political debates. …

    Such examples reveal that Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court is not some anomaly. It’s merely the latest case of how the distorting power of Jewish privilege defines today’s politics and policy, at great cost to women, minorities, immigrants and any other subset of Americans not represented by the Jewish senators on the Judiciary Committee and their partisan brethren. …

    Ruh – oh.

    People who are on the side of good (e.g. Bill Clinton), even if they actually rape women and abuse their position of power to have sexual relations with their interns, are NEVER privileged white males. Some poor schnook who makes $20K/yr running a small bakery – HE’s privileged, but Bezos and Soros and Biden are woke which negates their privilege.

    Basing your political platform on “anger” is a crude tactic – it is a base emotion and the tool of demagogues. If you remember Obama’s campaign posters they said “HOPE” on them, not anger (and Bill Clinton was the Man from Hope).

    Sure, his poster said “hope”, but his campaign radiated anger. His surrogates spent most of their time calling his opponents racists, fascists, etc. As far as I can tell, the Democrats whole campaign platform is “Anger”. And, to a large extent it works. It works at riling up their base, anyway. Trump was the first Republican since maybe Lee Atwater who seemed to understand that and made use of it. Trump didn’t appeal to “hope” – he said things like “well, somebody’s doing the raping!”.

    Really successful politicians in America appeal to the “better angels of our nature”.

    The most famous really successful politician who appealed to the “better angels of our nature” waged a bloody civil war that killed hundreds of thousands of Americans. That kind of crazed american exceptionalism needs to die for America to have any kind of decent future.

    “A few weeks ago, on RadioDerb, John said he hoped the Democrats didn’t get shellacked too badly in the mid-terms as that might cause them to dial down their extremist views in time to win the 2020 presidential election. It was one of the few times listening to the Derb that I thought he was totally missing the picture.”

    That is a surprise. He’s usually so spot on.

    My take, after decades of miserable proximity to Democrats, is that they never dial down their extremist views. For one thing, they are very invested in being right–not due to their grasp of facts or policy but because of who they are. And who they are is the ones who are right. Their logic is never more than circular reasoning. And when confronted with even the mildest disagreement, they double down. When even they must acknowledge they are wrong, they instantly cast aside that aspect of their belief system. It’s not useful so it no longer exists for them.

    Democrats couldn’t care less about economic, judicial or military policy. They have less than zero interest in any abstract principles like fairness or justice. They care about being right and the absolute power they believe being right should give them.

    I think many of you still don’t understand how fanatical and absolutist they are. You all need to stop giving them so many breaks and making the fatal mistake of thinking they think the way you do.

    Media, yes. In the other four categories (you left out Medicine and Big Tech) they are disproportionately powerful but not dominant. Maybe the combined network effect of all these generates some kind of critical mass but agenda-determining rulership over the gentile peons doesn’t exist outside of media.

    I agree with your analysis here.

    One thing I don’t think has been understood very well is the sheer emotional power identity politics exerts over the left. I don’t think economic issues ever achieved this sort of dominance. It also explains why they rarely even bring up economics, except as lip service. They really are crazier over identities than they ever had been before. They no longer can plan with any prudence.

    I don’t think anybody would think in advance that the Kavanaugh hysteria would prove a political boon for them, rather than the opposite. But they plunged headlong into it — they couldn’t stop themselves, down to the last Avenatti sleaze.

    I’m sure there’s some kind of evolutionary explanation here, no doubt going back to in-group vs. out-group alliances. It also seems to satisfy the need, however explained, that human beings feel for a religious experience.

    Identity politics is some kind of social/emotional Attractor, and nobody seems to have a particularly good handle on it.

    Well, the witch hunt analogy works for analyzing #MeToo much better than antiwhite agitation.

    #MeeToo has been appropriated by RadFem and the institutional left now. There are two possibilities with any accusation:

    A. There is evidence that some sexual impropriety occurred, in which case we’ve got him!

    B. There is no evidence that something occurred, and “the way trauma works” is that you don’t have evidence – ergo, the lack of evidence is in itself evidence of the sexual impropriety – we’ve got him! (This is more akin to the admission of spectral evidence in witch hunts).

    Antiwhite agitation actually propagates the very thing it’s supposed to diminish. Those accused of witchcraft didn’t put on long, pointy hats and conduct tongue in cheek rituals in response. White people irritated by left antiwhite agitation do, however, embrace cultural marks amounting to a middle finger to their tormentors, which is itself the evidence that is seized upon by the tormentors. It’s a somewhat subtle difference, in my view.

    Geez, Lot, relax. You’re a smart mischling, everytime someone here mentions “Jew” or “Jewish” you don’t have to hyperventilate.

    Go back and read what i said about Jews (vs. blacks) being the movers and shakers of the Democratic party:

    As an ethnic party, they are the Jewish party. The Jews call the shots, set policy, write the propaganda, run the campaigns, contribute the money and reap the rewards. The blacks are pawns, cannon fodder–a vote bank bought with some welfare, some AA, lax law enforcement and bundles of grievance propaganda.

    is there honestly any part of that you disagree with? Do you think blacks set the Democrat agenda? Is it a bunch of Irish Catholic intellectuals? And money? C’mon.

    A the most basic level the Democrats are simply “the State party”. In the modern West there is always a “state party” which represents the interests of people who make a living, directly or indirectly from the state–from the state’s power to order people about.

    ~~
    And on the current topic–the explicit anti-white hysteria–are you seriously suggesting that this minoritarian, anti-white and anti-nationalist vibe that the Democrats/left has taken on is not a Jewish thing? Not created, taught, propagandized and promulgated by Jewish intellectuals, academics, writers, media hacks? Seriously?

    I’m a bit older and can tell you that for all the ethnic aspects of the Democratic party, this anti-white vibe did not exist in the Democrat party in the 60s. It’s something that has come in–and come increasingly to prominence–with the rise of the Jews.

    Denying this Jewish ideology/behavior is like a black guy denying that blacks have a problem with crime, or me denying that the Irish have a problem with drink. Or that some Irish guys (and even gals) being “mean drunks” isn’t one of the character defects of our people.

    Almost–the term “White Genocide” arises around here so often, yet I’ve never thought to see how it would fit into the established frameworks for analyzing ethnic conflict and genocide in general. I’m not surprised that you’re the one to make this very eye-opening comparison. Thanks.

    I know the work of Genocide Watch’s Greg Stanton, having interviewed him a couple of times; and while I assume he leans politically in the direction of most academics, he’s a solid scholar and an older hand who’s serious about his discipline.

    You might also be interested in the work of a sociologist named Daniel Chirot, who categorizes levels of ethnic rivalry and conflict–from low-level stuff like making ethnic jokes to lethal expressions like genocide. On the 6-level scale he published around 2001, our society’s situation would seem to be trending towards Level 3: “Conflict, no war but occasional violence.” (I’d say we’re currently “on the line” in transition from Level 2: “No serious conflict, despite high level of awareness about and important political role of ethnic and religious differences.”)

    The only link to the chart I have at hand is on Amazon; you can find it on page 7 of the book “Ethnopolitical Warfare: Causes, Consequences, and Possible Solutions”:

    Ominously, a few of the examples Chirot listed in the lowest conflict level circa 2001 (Level 1: “Past conflict followed by reconciliation”) have subsequently begun to unravel and revert to violence.

  150. @AnotherDad

    Note: None of this (i would think obviously) means the Republicans should go around labeling the Democrats “the Jewish party”.

    I do think it would be highly beneficial for Jews on the nationalist side, to denounce the craziness and race-hatred of their co-ethnics. Co-ethnics denouncing bad behavior in their co-ethnics is a good measure.

    I think Steve’s non-explicit–“but, of course, blacks natural home is the Democratic party”–encouragement to blacks to feel they own the Democratic party is a good strategy.

    My preferred, explicit, moniker that the Republicans should use is calling the Democrats “the parasite party”. But “big state”, “globalist”, “rich coastal elites”, “anti-nationalist”, “pro-foreigner”, “pro-criminal”, “anti-white”, “anti-male”, “anti-middle class”, “anti-American”, should all be put into the air as well.

    Paradoxically, as the power and privilege of the Globo-Homo elites increase, the more they push PC lunacy. But wouldn’t PC go after their power and privilege? Maybe in the long long run. But PC doesn’t generally work that way. PC is like training school for dogs, and dogs must be taught at WHAT to bark at.

    As the wealth and privilege of a certain group increases, it needs to distract the Politics of Rage from their success. As people are naturally envious, they like to hate on those-with-more. So, the elites must use PC to make the Rage target certain symbols of privilege than real substances of power.
    ‘White male privilege’ is one of those symbols. No matter how much white males lose status and privilege, WMP(the WMD of PC) is always there as a symbol because the elites need to direct the Politics of Rage at some target. And what better than White Male Privilege?
    Of course, white male status is not white male privilege no matter howd privileged it is AS LONG AS it is with Globo-Homo. So, Bidens and Bloombergs of the world are not part of WMP(just like Saudis are never with the Axis of Evil supporting terrorism cuz it’s part of US world order). Kavanaugh is problematic because he’s seen as the pick of Trump the Populist. Had Jeb Bush won and had appointed him, there might have been less resistance. It was less Kav than who chose him. Trump’s populism is seen as a threat to globo-homo elite power. Because of Kav’s connection to Trump the populist, he is seen as a threat to Elite Power. Indeed, what the elites really fear is White Male Populism as a threat to Globo-Homo Privilege. White Male Populism says ‘white middle and working classes matter too’. This is threatening to Globo-Homo for two reasons. (1) It stands in the way of outsourcing to boost Globo-Homo elite power. (2) Existence of White Male Populism means that the vast majority of white people are NOT privileged but part of the middle and working classes that want to preserve basic standards for the Middle Class Society that grew so prominent after WWII.

    Another reason why the elites need PC is they need to feel ‘sacred’ about something. Part of human nature to be holy about something. Much of Liberalism gained power via irreverence, cynicism, youthfulness. As appealing and fun that stuff is, it feels hollow at the end of the day. Also, one doens’t feel justified via cynicism. There was idealism in Liberalism, but idealism is secular, and nothing is for certain. A political idea or program that seemed rational at one time can prove to be utterly wrongheaded, like so much Liberal urban projects in the 60s. Ideals inspire but can be discredited with discussion and experience. US society was shaped like a bowling pin after WWII. widest in the middle. Globo-Homo wants it to be like a pyramid.

    So, the only way Progs can hold something like permanent power is via the holy idolatry of PC that sets certain figures and themes as sacrosanct and other figures/symbols as Evil. This way, political discourse becomes less like a rational debate and empirical analysis and more like chants, incantations, and sacraments. This is why so many articles on Kav sound like some ritual of cleansing. ‘white male privilege… witch, witch… must be cast out… evil spirit…’
    Secul-dotal is the new sacerdotal. In the post-religious age, something secular has to be turned holy or unholy.

What is damning about their noisy supremacism (beyond the own-foot-shooting mass media amplification) is the screamingly obvious programmatic campaigns, where the same phrasing or theses appear similtaneously in multiple vectors, with self-explanatory political goals, and the carpetbaggers whose entire professional lives depend on supremacist hucksterism, like Tim Wise or Noel Ignatiev.
    If a hundred Malays released Malayist editorials, letters to the editor, YouTube e-celeb monologues and books, in English, in the American market, at about the same time and with media respect, no one would fail to notice. We cannot know how many normies recognize what is happening because of unique societal controls. However, there is reason to suspect that what worked before is not as effective now, especially given the rocketing stridency.

    The story of the limousine that crashed in upstate NY, has many of the hallmarks of bad, careless, negligent business practices of the Diverse. As soon as I heard that the limousine that crashed was in very poor condition, I knew the company must have been owned by a member of the Diverse. Driver also didn’t have proper license. Owner’s name is Shahed Hussain, and the NYT article mentions that he had been an informant for the FBI in terrorism cases. Echoes of Tsarnayev. I think this may turn up to be another entangled story of preferential treatment of the Diverse for some “security” consideration. May be worth your investigation.

    What gets me is how clueless Jews are about how most nonwhite immigrants feel about them as a people. They are disliked and/or distrusted by a large majority of them. If things go on as they have been since the 90s, the Democratic party will be openly antisemitic within a decade or so as old Jewish insiders die off and are replaced by younger “people of color.”

    Despite this, a lot of Jews seem to think that white, Christian Americans are the eternal enemy, even though that is factually and historically 100% false. The truth is that white, Christian Americans have been the friendliest toward Jews of any people in the history of the world.

    I am a lifelong Democrat. In fact, my family has been Democrats since the time of Andrew Jackson.

    I have never voted for a Republican on a national ticket.

    Of the various Democrats who have been on the ticket for President or VP over my lifetime, I must say Biden is one of the very, very worst. For all the reasons you gave.

    Consider, the big banks mostly incorporate in Delaware, because Delaware has the most favorable pro-bank laws.

    When Biden was in the Senate, every time there was a bill where consumers were on one side and the banksters on the other side, Biden went with the banks. Always.

    Obama choosing Biden as VP was a clear signal to the banksters that they would be handled with kid gloves for their actions leading up to the financial crises. The banks got bailed out, the rest of us were left holding the bag. The money that was supposed to go to refinance the underwater loans was NOT used that way. It was used to prop up the banks.

    In Iceland, the government prosecuted the banksters who destroyed their economy. The Obama-Biden administration did NOTHING!

    Blatant fraud? Let’s give you a few trillion in bailouts and QE!
    Money laundering for international criminal organizations? Let’s punish you with MORE bailouts and QE!

    I hate to say this. I wanted the Democrats to win in 2016. But there are several reasons why the Democrats lost. One of the biggest was the way the powerful Democrats cozied up to big banks and companies like Tata Consulting Services, which exists only to make money putting Americans out of work.

    That’s a fun theory but Bugliosi’s plot of Helter Skelter and the book by that name were a red herring.

    What Manson was was a pimp who supplied underaged girls to Hollywood stars and politicians. Prior to coming to the West Coast, he had served time for pimping.

    We know that Polanski was guilty of sex with minors and guests at his parties may have indulged as well. Sharon Tate knew about this and it disturbed her. For voicing her objections (which Polanski may have innocently passed on to Manson, who was supplying the talent) she posed a threat to expose Manson’s Spahn Ranch empire and had to be killed. Loyal lieutenant Tex Watson and crew were dispatched to do the job.

    Abigail Folger, the older woman who was also murdered along with Sharon Tate, was both a donor to and volunteer at the Haight-Ashbury Free Medical Clinic where Manson’s girls were regular customers, being provided with free treatment for their gonorrhea and other sundry venereal diseases. From working there Folger would have been privy to Manson’s use of underaged girls as well. She too had to die.

    Right. Worldwide, hard left Ashkenazi Jews are a not insignificant part of Jewish population, but are not the all-dominating juggernaut of political insanity that they are in the USA. Steve has mentioned this a few times but the American readers here probably do not understand how exceptional the liberal American Jews are. They are basically a separate population ideologically and religiously from the typical Jew in the rest of the world. Reform Judaism is an American thing (started in Germany, but that’s no longer relevant for obvious reasons) and is kinda hard to distinguish from a branch of Christianity that doesn’t talk about Jesus, or a spiritual program sponsored by NPR.

  250. “In particular, would Jewish Democrats have the self-awareness to notice that they’ve got a worsening problem with their animus against white gentiles?”

    1) Jewish Democrats are progressives.
    2) Progressives have little-to-no grasp of reality.
    3) Self-awareness implies awareness of a reality: self.
    4) Therefore, Jewish Democrats will not have enough self-awareness to notice anything.

    Besides, being progressive means never having to say you’re sorry.

    We would quickly find that “whites” (non-Hispanic white gentiles) would increase slightly in their representation in American public life: maybe they would pick up another seat on the Supreme Court. Four Jewish Supreme Court justices would have to resign, irrespective of their merit; and large numbers of Jewish journalists would be looking for new jobs.

    The story that “we need to look like America” is something that no one has thought through. White Americans fear quotas, and that is why journalists and politicians use the idea of “privilege” as a weapon. In fact, whites would feel a small benefit from quotas. The biggest losers by far would be members of a small tribe that is over-represented by a factor of between 10 and 40 in American public life.

    “What I see everyday is that all of the men getting close to retirement … the people being hired to replace them are probably 75% POC.”

    I think the original poster’s observations bode very poorly for the United States’s ability to compete abroad in the future or even domestically in the age of globalism. As Anatoly Karlin has noted, Silicon Valley only does well because they have a monopoly (and I’d argue they also have an advantage in marketing because they speak English). When faced with actual competition, they struggle. See Tesla as an example; also, Apple – Samsung is the real innovator in the mobile phone market now. American multi-cultural companies currently have an advantage due to them being so large and having a monopoly, but they are extremely inefficient due to their “diverse” hiring practices and they inspire almost none of their employees to go out of the way to innovate for them; employees are nothing more than cogs in a wheel. When Han China bursts onto the scene in the West, watch out.

    An interesting topic that likely won’t be covered around here (wrong demographic*) is the competition multicultural American video game companies are facing from traditional, ethnically homogeneous, countries like Japan and China. Microsoft’s game console, the XBox One, is getting dominated this console generation by the Japanese companies Sony and Nintendo. Reason: Microsoft can’t make politically incorrect content, so they are having to rely on low-brow content like sports games, race car games, and first person shooters that won’t “offend” anyone.

    *Anatoly Karlin might like this topic, though. I’d be interested to see him write about it.

    Meanwhile, Japanese companies put anti-pc tropes into their games all the time – like attractive female characters, strong male characters, and traditional stories like rescuing princesses – in order to appeal to the male demographic. True, many of their first party studios are in the West, but they are controlled by an East Asian culture. Compare that situation to Microsoft, in particular their sexy female mascot, Cortana. She was covered up and purposely uglified in their latest Halo game in order to appease SJWs; formerly, she appeared as a nearly naked hologram with a voluptuous figure and beautiful face. Result: Sony and Nintendo have destroyed them in terms of sales. Microsoft can’t compete at all, so there are rumors circulating that they are getting out of the games console market and trying to rebrand as a streaming service.

    And Microsoft isn’t the only Western company to get dominated by anti-pc East Asia or conservative Eastern Europe. Short list:

    Electronic Arts (Mass Effect) = took a successful role playing game and purposely made the female characters unattractive; this was done because the game allows players to romance other characters in game, and since “male objectification” is a big thing with SJWs and we can’t have young men looking at hot girls according to female “journalists”, they were removed. Not surprisingly, the game sales crashed.

    Electronic Arts (Battlefield 5) = inserted female characters – including a disabled female with blue face paint and a prosthetic arm – into the front lines of WW2 Britain’s armies in Western Europe, despite the utter implausibility of the situation. They also showed the female character doing “ninja” moves and beating up/killing large male characters with a cricket bat. EA’s executive vice president Patrick Soderlund responded to criticism by claiming that detractors (his company’s audience) is ignorant and possibly sexist. Not surprisingly, the game’s pre-order sales have plummeted and he quit his job before sales figures were released.

    Microsoft/343 Industries (Halo) = took the sexy, nearly naked, Cortana character and made her purposely unattractive, both in terms of figure and face. Halo 5 sales were so low they were covered up by Microsoft; true, that aspect of the game by itself did not cause them to lose sales, but it was definitely part of a culture that contributed to the game’s poor production value.

    Microsoft’s 343 Industries, like many American companies these days, is filled with affirmative action hires, particularly females. As such, they can no longer make games with attractive females without risk that someone will run to HR or the Soros-funded American games “press” like Polygon, IGN, or Kotaku will attack them. Their Asian and Polish competition have no such limitations, however, and have crushed Microsoft’s first party production studios as a result.

    EA/Bioware = in the Lord of the Rings-esque “Dragon Age” franchise, which also allows players to romance other characters, they inserted a transgendered character whose identity as a male was purposely hidden until just before the player could chose to have sex with them. When this fact is revealed to the player, it is too late to back down…and if the player does, the game is programed to make all the in-game characters hate you for turning down the option of having sex with a “female” character pretending to be male. Not surprisingly, the game was met with derision and sales crashed. There is speculation afloat that the Dragon Age franchise is all but dead.

    And that’s only a very short list. Compare that to their competition which has dominated:

    CD Project Red (Polish company) = produced a “Witcher 3” game, which I believe Steve has covered, with an all-European cast and gorgeous player characters, including sexy females. The game was denounced on many SJWs forums but became a monster hit anyway (it’s almost like politically correct SJWs are a small percentage of the population despite controlling the megaphone). This game effectively destroyed EA/Bioware’s politically-correct Dragon Age franchise. Over the pond, Netflix is busy replacing one of the main Polish characters with a black woman. Fans will loooovvveee that.

    Nintendo (Japanese) = traditional content appealing to traditional values (i.e. Mario and Link rescue a princess) have won millions of loyal customers, despite Nintendo’s technically inferior Switch console. They’ve sold millions of units and will likely far surpass Microsoft’s XBox One in sales this year, despite the XBox One being out for greater than double the length of time and being much more graphically capable for the same or lower price.

    Sony (Japanese) = dominated Microsoft in ways that can hardly be described here; their list of first party exclusives is simply breathtaking, both in terms of their quality and in terms of their variety. They are regularly attacked by American SJWs for including content from Japanese companies that feature attractive women, but they largely ignore that and have crushed multicultural Microsoft as a result. Under this same category, I’d file many other Japanese game companies, but if I did it here, you’d never finish the post – for the two or three people who made it this far.

    And on the horizon is China’s Tencent, a game company of monster proportions only held back by the shortsightedness of the Chinese government. Once they get into the Western market with their anti-pc content, they may very well dominate, too. I find it ironic that a company under the control of an authoritarian government may one day crush their free market American competition.

    I’m not sure what a Rube Goldberg invention has to do with this; it’s not a complicated invention or an overly elaborate plot. It just seems to be the way things work. Also, it’s not necessarily a question of being a wuss. How many conservative justices have made it to the court and then taken a left tack? Turns out, quite a few. I don’t think the same can be said of liberal or democrat justices (although some turn out to be slightly less leftist than feared). I wouldn’t say that Republicans or conservative politicians have been particularly brave or principled in the past 25 years and an episode like this, ending with a lifetime appointment, might provide some incentives for a person to “moderate” their views in order to prove how “fair” and “impartial” they are.

    You’re right. They relinquished some control of operations after Katherine Graham died, which I confused with the more recent sale.

    It’s been quite a while since any of the family who ran the paper “identified as Jewish”. Katharine Weymouth who was the publisher before the sale to Bezos is 1/8 Jewish and the third generation of her family to be raised Christian. Her great-grandmother was Lutheran, then grandma Katherine Graham was raised Episcopalian, and so on ever after. By matrilineal descent the Meyers stopped being Jewish in 1917. I don’t think Israel would consider them as Jewish immigrants without a conversion.

    The limo wasn’t manufactured to be a limo. It was an SUV that was cut in half and passenger seats inserted then all patched back together again

    I think this is how ALL “stretch” limos are made. They are not really the safest vehicles but the biggest issue is that the passengers are rarely belted and go flying around in a crash. Being belted in a limo is not conducive to having fun but it is conducive to not dying in a crash so take your pick.

    Also apparently the biggest factor in this crash is that the driver went thru a stop sign at a T intersection at the base of a hill and then into the trees. The speed limit is 50 but cars are often going faster and if you are unfamiliar with the intersection and not paying attention (there is also a “stop ahead” warning sign) the stop sign comes into view too late to stop. In other words driver error – if you are going 60 and drive square into an oak tree then no vehicle is safe.

    There were varying reactions to the trauma of the Holocaust – some Jews became Hasids, some became Zionists, some decided that they would spare their children by never telling them that they were Jewish. Albright’s parents were apparently in the latter group.

    The paternal grandfather of the current publisher was the last full genetic Jew of the line and his children and grandchildren were raised as Christians and married non-Jews. By the Orthodox Jewish definition they are non-Jews. I’ll let you research whether they qualify as Jews under the Israel law of return or the Nuremberg laws. The point is that they underwent the same assimilation, intermarriage and Christianization process as the Washington Post owners.

    Read Katharine Graham’s autobiography “Personal History”.
    She refers to herself as a “Jewish girl…until the day I die.”

    So how many generations of the intermarriage and Christianization does it take before they no longer “count” as Jewish? WaPo owners were 2 generations past half-Jew Katharine Graham when it sold, none of them with matrilineally Jewish mothers.

    By the Orthodox Jewish definition they are non-Jews.

    If they consider themselves Jews, and they act as Jews, they are most certainly Jews for all practical purposes. That the distinction is more cultural than religious among many Jews today is a commentary more on our times and our society than on their identities. Yours is a trivial, pedantic, and irrelevant observation.

    So how many generations of the intermarriage and Christianization does it take before they no longer “count” as Jewish?

    Who cares? Another idle argument. If they genuinely consider themselves Jewish, and act as such, they are Jewish for all practical purposes. We don’t do blood testing and we (most of us) don’t follow Halachah in this country, which you know as well as I do.

    That article is one of 3 references on this matter in the Wikipedia article on Albright. I read them given what is being written in this comment thread.

    Those references say that on several occasions between the ages of 52 and 59, years 1989 to 1996, Albright received information suggesting, and finally proving, that her family was originally Jewish, although this at first seemed to contradict other things she was told since her youth. By some unknown time in those years she must have known she was ancestrally Jewish. She says age 59 and nothing in the articles mentions information from before age 52 or directly contradicts her version of events.

    She knew before she was Secretary of State but not necessarily before being UN Ambassador (1993).

    It sounds like she had suspicions but preferred to not know, and she says it was too late in life to develop a Jewish identity. None of this is what people normally call “crypto-Judaism” where one secretly practices in a community of other hidden Jews.

    Tom Stoppard’s father was killed during WWII and he grew up assuming he was perhaps 1/4th Jewish by ancestry, with his mother being half Jewish and his father not being Jewish. But in the later 1980s as the Cold War eased up and he got in touch with relatives in Czechoslovakia he discovered he was 100% Jewish.

    I can’t speak for the others, but in Hispaniola, the natives were pretty thoroughly eliminated. That, and nowhere near as much pan-European (or Arab, if you look more recently) immigration as you saw to, say, Mexico. El Jefe, FDR’s favourite SOB, tried to import Jews fleeing from the Nazis and the other various anti-Semtitic authoritarian
    right-wing governments that dotted Central Europe through the 30s, but dunno how far he got, most wanted to go to the States.

    As a result, unlike in Mexico or Central America (where the indios survived and there was no need to import Africans), the main ethnic groups are Spaniard, African, or a mix thereof through the the Carribbean. Same colonizer, different setup.

    People who “consider themselves Jewish” generally don’t raise their children to be ritually Christian for generation after generation while continuing to insist on their identity as Jews. Katharine Graham had a Jewish father and probably grew up with practicing Jewish grandparents, so her calling herself Jewish in an autobiography where that can mean whatever she wants it to, is not surprising. There is no indication (at least none you provided from having read her book) that her second- and third-generation churchgoing Christmas celebrating descendants had any conception of themselves as Jewish any more than they thought of themselves as Scottish or whatever other nationalities were represented at 1/8 in their bloodline. You are simply declaring from her one statement that her family (and the later generation of Sulzbergers) inherited a Jewish identity in perpetuity despite all behavioral evidence being to the contrary.

    A few things.
    1. Chicago and surrounding, so less whites than 30 years ago.

    2. The company is seeking to hire POC. Every year, we are treated to a brief celebration of Diversity Day, where we are forced to watch a video about how white people are bad, and the Brazilian president of the parent company actually states in the video that ‘We must provide opportunities for all of our employees, but ESPECIALLY minorities and women.” The message couldn’t be clearer.

    3. Whites in general over the last 30-40 years have been duped into believing that the only way to make a good living anymore is to drop a quarter mil on a college indoctrination, I mean, education. So there are substantially fewer whites going into the trades out of high school because they have been convinced they MUST go to college.

    A few trades have resisted the change in my observation: Operating engineers, electricians, millwrights, pipefitters (mostly), half the carpenters. But young laborers, painters, and finishers are almost all Mexican mestizos now. And even in Chicago, I would say that blacks occupy less than 5% of any one of those trades I just mentioned.

It’s just a normal T intersection on a country road except that it is at the base of a incline. Perhaps the “Stop ahead” sign (which is sort of innocuous – one of those international symbol signs with a picture of a stop sign and an arrow) could be lit up with flashing lights or something. And on the other side of the intersection they could, I suppose install an earth berm or something that would slow you down more safely than a oak tree.

    Rape is a racial phenomenon. Some things are race neutral – not many but some. For example Kung Fu movies seem to be equally liked by white and black men. (If I’m wrong about that I’m sure some other reader will gleefully correct me.)

    But rape is very clearly a black crime. The difference between whites and blacks is around seven to one. The difference between East Asians and blacks is even larger. So we should be surprised when a white man is accused of rape. Among whites it’s rare, among blacks it’s common.

    But contrary to all rational expectation and all the evidence the Democrats try to associate whiteness with rape. If you went by statistics Kavanaugh might have said with some justice – “Me! A rapist? What do you think I am an African American?”

    It’s common to put more emphasis on what is more prestigious in the family tree, but the same picking and choosing applies to the religious part.

Katharine Meyer and her siblings had a German Lutheran mother but attended an Episcopal church.

    The Sulzbergers even in their 100% genetically Jewish phase were notorious as the epitome of ultra assimilated German Reform Jews deathly afraid that any hint of tribal Joo-ishness would lower their social standing. In addition to under-reporting the Holocaust during the war, afterward Arthur Sulzberger Sr promoted the idea that it was not so much those nice Germans at fault as the disagreeable Russian Jewish Zionists:

    There are lots of immigration-related things that are hurting us. Some of those are what you mentioned, others include dual citizenship, Puerto Rico’s status as a territory, etc. The point is that if you don’t build a wall to keep out millions of people flooding the country illegally (aka, enforce current laws that are being blatantly violated), you’re probably not going to restrict legal immigration in any meaningful way or monitor visa holders. Doing the latter would be a tacit admission that the US has a right to decide who enters its territory and that would weaken the case of the so-called open borders lobby. It’s much the same quandary that the pro-choice crowd finds themselves in. If they concede in any way that a fetus is a life at any point, they lose the basis for much of their argument. This is why the more activist pro-choicers will only talk about the right of a woman to choose and women’s health.

    All of that aside, even if you were to make substantive change with respect to reducing legal immigration and implement a more reliable, modern and centralized system for monitoring visas, failing to build a wall kill you sooner rather than later. The lack of a secure southern border is a sucking chest wound that has to be triaged above all other immigration injuries

    The question was serious. Your idea of a “crypto-Jewish institution” is interesting and I am trying to understand whether there’s a definition that could apply to real organizations.

    If you only meant it as a colorful way of saying that there are taboos or double standards when it comes to discussing Jews, then that’s a point made often on this blog. In part you are correct and in part you Judaize things that aren’t Jewish. A benefit of having clear definitions is to have a better idea of when the criticism makes sense and when it is just venting at the Happy Merchant.

    CNN has never tried to hide its organization chart or told its employees to not advertise their Jewishness. The chart from HanSolo can be found by putting the words “CNN organization chart Jew” into most search engines. If a non anti-Semitic version were available, it would circulate more. That means providing only the data, without the loaded questions and the Star of David symbols, and giving the same numerical information about non-Jews as about Jews (number and percent at the top management levels).

    No one wants to hear about clerks. If a justice is competent, he’s hiring the best ones to further the functioning of the court. If he’s putting something else ahead of that criteria, he shouldn’t be on the court. Since the former goes without saying, if he’s talking about it, that means he’s doing the latter. Bad look.

    Out of curiosity, I read a private message board, where the posters are convinced that Kavanaugh is probably a rapist, and checked to see their reaction to the all women clerks announcement.

    That rape is mostly a black (and Latino) crime is a hatefact. You are never going to hear hatefacts in the MSM. If you mention any hatefacts, that makes you a Nazi. Wait, you say – these facts are true, I got them from the FBI statistics. Makes no difference – there are lots of facts out there, whole libraries full of facts and by choosing to highlight these particular hatefacts, you out yourself as a Nazi. Go away, Nazi, I can’t hear you.

    Seven to 1 is an understatement. If you look at the “white” rapists, a lot of them have names like Jose and Juan and ain’t so white looking. Also, if you look at the incidence of interracial rape, the ratio becomes almost infinitely large because the incidence of white on black rape, ala the Duke lacrosse players, is a statistical zero. It turns out that white guys are just not into raping black women because they are so racist. Black men are not racists, so they have no problem raping white chicks.

    So your point about Kav does not compute in the popular imagination. On Law & Order SVU, ALL the rapists are evil looking white frat boys like Kav. Black guys are all Obama type guys – very intelligent but in a cool and not nerdy way and always on the side of the victim. They are like your imaginary black friend that you wish that you had but you don’t actually know any blacks who are that intelligent and cool in real life. They would never rape anyone.

    My work brings me into contact with a lot of the building trades involved with light construction in Philly. What I have noticed is that yes, there are very few American black skilled tradesmen (I see some Jamaican carpenters for some reason) and the ones that there are are older – I think current generation blacks would rather get some government job where you don’t have to work that hard. And among the other trades I see a lot of Latinos who are South American – Brazilians, Columbians, Ecuadorians, Peruvians, etc. and not just Mexicans. I also see ex-Soviets – not just Russians but Uzbeks, Khazakhs, etc. – Russian is a lingua franca even if they are not ethnic Russian. Each ethnicity seems to have its own little accidental niche – I think it must be like the Afghan fried chicken trade (or Indian motels, etc.) – once upon a time one Brazilian was a framer and he brought over his cousin to work for him and learn the trade who then spun off and brought over his friend who brought over his brother in law and pretty soon all the framers in Philly are Brazilian (and the drywall guys are Mexican and the roofers are Russian and the flooring guys are Vietnamese and so on). Some of the S. Americans are white or almost white and I am guessing of higher IQ than the typical Mexican – being a framer requires more brains than putting up drywall.

    I don’t know whether this is a national trend or a trend at all, this is just from my personal observation.

    Also apparently the biggest factor in this crash is that the driver went thru a stop sign at a T intersection at the base of a hill and then into the trees. The speed limit is 50 but cars are often going faster and if you are unfamiliar with the intersection and not paying attention (there is also a “stop ahead” warning sign) the stop sign comes into view too late to stop. In other words driver error – if you are going 60 and drive square into an oak tree then no vehicle is safe.

    This is pretty much why going past a stop sign without stopping is a ticketable offense. Most of the time, you’re fine. But the one time you’re not, might involve a fatal accident.

    Thanks Chris.

    I looked at Chirots’ p. 7 table. Besides that the “Reconciliations” often haven’t been, I see other infelicities in his scheme.

    Level 5 (?) War Short of Genocide: aren’t most recent wars (say since 1870 or so, and even many before that) essentially ethnic wars? Viewed this way, “genocide” is just war, but one side isn’t armed or doesn’t have sovereign territory.

    Indeed, he could use this concept to replace the entire scale, as simply “ethnic conflict, with the degree of genocide depending on how unequal the sides are in military power (including foreign diplomatic backing)”.

    With the not entirely credible exception of Tanzania, all of the examples of “No serious conflict despite” diversity are what Derb calls “Ice People”. And even there, I’m not sure what “important differences” are supposed to be in “Han regions”. I thought the Han are a single ethnic group whose North-South cline is less differentiated that the North-South difference of US whites. So really all that’s left in that category are white people … provided we’re not having our occasional world war. (He could have included Italy and France more plausibly than Finland and Germany IMHO.)

    Anyhow, do you know of any similar table Stanton has published showing real world examples of his stages? Stanton’s schema is a little different in that there is simultaneity: earlier stages continue to run even as later stages begin. Stanton’s schema is more interesting since it may have some predictive power. In Chirot, a society is just wherever you happen to categorize it, but the implication of Stanton’s scale is that you can track–and therefore anticipate–the progress of genocide from one milestone to the next.

    He made the decisions before the misconduct accusations were public.

    Where is the 35 percent figure from? If there is one shared group of applicants for all the SCOTUS clerkships that has 35 percent women that is one thing. If each judge has his own pipeline then Kavanaugh’s could have more women in it. His clerks have been over 50 percent female so if he randomly chose from those the odds are about one in 15. If over the years he developed a reputation for hiring relatively more females than other judges then applicants would figure that out and he would have more and better women in his hiring pool as a result.

    There can’t be any uniform process for this or else Garland and Kavanaugh would not place clerks on the Supreme Court at 3 to 10 times the rate of everyone else.

    the media [is crypto-Jewish,] attacking white people 24/7 while at the same time destroying anyone who applies the same standard to Jews

    Jews are included in the 24/7 attacks on whites. The hilarious Matthew Dowd article was the exception that proves the rule. It’s also funny that a lot of Jews imagine that Jews are excluded but blacks, for example, don’t think so.

    To make your second point you should find examples of tolerated attacks on non-Jewish ethnic/religious subgroups of whites, such as Irish or Italians. For example, in many years’ worth of allegations of police racism and brutality toward blacks, the idea that this is from police being white is a given, but the idea that the Catholic white ethnics most involved in the police have higher levels of aggression and negrophobia, and lower IQ, compared to founding stock English and Northern Europeans (Hajnal line…), seems to be total taboo. Is it a problem there are so many Catholic justices?

    There may be an ethnic component to that, too. If potential Jew-critics in the media are afraid of being fired, Irish-critics in and outside the media might fear reprisal from police, the FBI or local government.

Non-ethnostates are often problematic, split into ethnostates or are absorbed into larger ones. Then and now some of those de facto ethno-nations also had de jure ethnostatism such as having a state religion and (e.g. in Germany) “right of return” citizenship based on ancestry. Jews had all these things except a physical state.

    I don’t know of any Zionists (or Jews) who object to a state on the same principle for any other reasonably distinct group. If the USA had maintained racial segregation, banned nonwhite immigration and kept its nonwhites mostly in the South and Southwest, the Northern whites might have intermixed enough to become a pan-European white ethnicity with some kind of fungible uni-Christianity as the religion and a ethnic/racial identity distinct from ancestor populations. That didn’t happen, though. When you say White Zionist or White Nationalism you are conjuring a dream for the future based on ill-defined ideas of “white” and vague plans of who/where/how.

I don’t think a lot of American Jews would object if White Nationalist types bought up land somewhere in Canada or Greenland to set up their own deal. If your complaint is about immigration policy, I’m pretty sure again that the idea of most Jews is that every country can set its own. Denmark and Hungary do one thing, Sweden another.

    Read his famous Harvard address to see that he also understood Russia as being something that is not part of the West. Among other things he felt that Russia was spiritually superior. The fact that American plumbing is superior and that our TV sets are bigger didn’t strike him as a worthwhile tradeoff because spiritual superiority to him was more worthwhile than a BMW X5 even if it is equipped with the optional leather seats.

Aside from all the racial, ethnic and religious divisions that were there from day 1, there were always class divisions and regional divisions and political divisions and all sorts of divisions. America is never going to be an ethnostate like modern Poland. If there was ever a possibility of that, that shipped sailed long ago. You ain’t gonna unscramble the omelet even if there is a race war. We tried the Civil War/divide up the country thing and that didn’t work out (and the South stayed poor for a century afterward) Anyone who wants a race war or any other kind of war is nuts anyway.

    Just from reading. A number of things stuck out.

    Comments made by some people who attended Polanski’s parties upon the presence of Charlie Manson and strange-acting (some underaged) girls (probably on acid), wondering where they came from and why they were there.

    Another was the connection between Folger and the free clinic which she subsidized with some of her inheritance.

    Then there were rumors that Tate disapproved of what she suspected Polanski being up to. They were having disagreements about something and she wanted him to ditch some of his friends and get ready to act like a father.

    Manson’s actual criminal record back east. Among his numerous crimes were a charge of pimping our his wife and sex with a minor. All testimony agrees that life at Spahn range was about sex with Charlie (and one another) and there were minor girls there when the place was busted.

    Things just sort of fit together.

    If your complaint is about immigration policy, I’m pretty sure again that the idea of most Jews is that every country can set its own.

    And if Jews have anything to say about the matter, they’ll be open policies.

    Denmark and Hungary do one thing, Sweden another.

    And Jews want open borders for all three.

    The mistake that most WNs make is imagining that America was ever a pure, white Anglo-Saxon Protestant country where all white people shared common interests.

    1 This is the mistake most Jews make where they imagine that WNs imagine that America was
    “ever a pure, white Anglo-Saxon Protestant country.” This is about as relevant as Jews’ imaginary purity.

    2 Whites do all share common interests. That’s fairly obvious in the current year.

    Maybe it was in certain isolated places but as a whole it never was and it sure as hell isn’t ever going to be again.

    “Zionism is crazy talk. It’ll never happen.”

    ~ Some wrong guy, back in the day.

    Aside from all the racial, ethnic and religious divisions that were there from day 1, there were always class divisions and regional divisions and political divisions and all sorts of divisions.

    They managed to get together and kick Britain’s ass to found the country in the first place. We won’t be needing anything more dramatic than that.

    America is never going to be an ethnostate like modern Poland.

    Countries are what men make them. Jews didn’t arrive here and see a vast wilderness full of savages and then build a superpower atop it, so I can see why you can’t imagine past your nose now.

    If there was ever a possibility of that, that shipped sailed long ago. You ain’t gonna unscramble the omelet even if there is a race war. We tried the Civil War/divide up the country thing and that didn’t work out (and the South stayed poor for a century afterward) Anyone who wants a race war or any other kind of war is nuts anyway.

    “I brought up race war and that means somebody else is nuts.”

    You really can’t compare a little tiny place like Israel (the size of NJ and despite its Zionist pretensions itself vastly multi-ethnic) with a vast nation like the US. The Zionists didn’t aspire for Israel to become the US, it aspired to become Slovenia or Belgium.

    Israel is a small place, for a small people. Whites are a large people, so we’ll need a bit more space.

    “You can’t compare Israel to” yeah we know, special pleading, bla bla bla.

    The Supreme Court.

    Is SCOTUS crypto-Jewish in the past 50 years, with many Jews on the court and generally liberal decisions? Or is it more crypto-Ivy-League? There are, by far, more Ivy Leaguers on the court. Ivy League even has its own synagogues (alumni clubs) in major cities, prayer rituals (annual reunions), tithing (donations) and religious literature (alumni magazines), and a “mother” land (alma mater campus). Do they act more in the interests of Jews or of Harvard-Yale graduates, and do they do either one intentionally?

    Poland is an ethnostate because they tried multiculturalism centuries before it was cool and found it didn’t work out very well.

    It’s an ethnostate because

    1. “ethnic cleansing, flight, murder and population transfer” was done to Lots More Than Six Million people on the (now) Polish territory

    2. most of the work was done by the armies and governments of two 10x stronger foreign nations, Germany and the USSR, that invaded and conquered the whole country

    3. several million of the total was possible only in unprecedented conditions of WW2 and absolute dictatorial leadership in the invading powers

    4. Five years of occupation and war and millions of dead made the Poles a bit angry.

    I don’t think it was from Poles reading multivolume tomes Naming The Enemy, rolling up their sleeves and saying “let’s make an ethnostate!”.

    WW2 and Jews are part of the data but otherwise incidental to the point, which was:

    Today’s “ethnostate” Poland is the result of ethnic purification from 1939 to the 1950’s (plus emigration after that) in which some 8 million Germans, Jews and what we now call Ukrainians were subtracted from the population by one means or another.

    Ethnic purity where 98 percent of the population shares a unique language, a single religion, and relatively homogeneous ancestry is not something Poles willed into being by meditating on the evils of multiculti. It took huge German and Soviet military power, several bloodbaths, and Stalin controlling Poland after the war.

    So the rules for Jews and everyone else are:

    1. every white person is afforded protection against group-level generalized criticism of racial/ethnic subpopulations to which they belong (Jew, Pole, Italian, WASP, Persian, …)

    2. no white person is afforded protection against group-level criticism of the population “whites”.

Not to mention Jews are cosmo and always have plenty of non-Jews around to marry, unlike certain rural pockets of whites, but their rates are still a lot lower.

    Citation needed. Relative to whom?

  433. Svigor says:
    @academic gossip

    This:

    The Sulzbergers even in their 100% genetically Jewish phase were notorious as the epitome of ultra assimilated German Reform Jews deathly afraid that any hint of tribal Joo-ishness would lower their social standing. In addition to under-reporting the Holocaust during the war, afterward Arthur Sulzberger Sr promoted the idea that it was not so much those nice Germans at fault as the disagreeable Russian Jewish Zionists:

    can only lead to disappointment, once the thread is pulled:

    Sulzberger, a practicing Reform Jew, who stood against Zionism and a Jewish state of Israel on principle has been accused by Laurel Leff of deliberately burying accounts of Nazi atrocities against Jews in the back pages of the Times. She alleges that Sulzberger went out of his way to play down the special victimhood of Jews and withheld support for specific rescue programs for European Jews.[7]

    Sulzberger was an enthusiastic supporter of the American Council for Judaism, founded in June 1942 to oppose Zionism, giving it prominent coverage in his newspaper. In a 1946 speech, Sulzberger claimed that Zionism was to blame for some of the Jewish deaths in the Holocaust, and that the refugee crisis during the war had been “a manageable, social and economic problem” until “the clamor for statehood introduced an insoluable [sic] political element” into the issue. “It is my judgment that thousands dead might now be alive” if “the Zionists” had put “less emphasis on statehood”.[8]

    “Notorious”? I suppose you mean in Jewish-Zionist circles? Those people have their own little mental ghetto going, where reality doesn’t intrude much.

    “Has been accused,” lol.

  434. Svigor says:

    From Art Sulzberger’s Wikipedia page:

    In 1917, he married Iphigene Bertha Ochs, the daughter of Adolph Ochs and Effie Wise (the daughter of Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise). They had four children: Marian Sulzberger Heiskell (born 1918), widow first of Times publisher Orvil Dryfoos and then of Time Inc. chairman Andrew Heiskell; Ruth Sulzberger Holmberg (1921—2017), publisher of the Chattanooga Times,[9] married and divorced from Ben Hale Golden; Judith Sulzberger Rosenschein Cohen Levinson (1923—2011), physician, married Matthew Rosenschein Jr. (divorced), Dick Cohen (divorced), and Budd Levinson; and Arthur Ochs Sulzberger (1926—2012).[10]

    It’s also part of a process of Polonization, a redefinition of Polish borders which had completely ceased to exist in 1795, etc. etc. etc. None of which would have happened had Poland continued to exist as the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

    And since Israel was the topic of discussion it’s fair to say that Poland was at least as much of an ethnostate in 1939 as Israel ever was. Stalin’s border manipulations and population transfers don’t come into it.

    1. every white person is afforded protection against group-level generalized criticism of racial/ethnic subpopulations to which they belong (Jew, Pole, Italian, WASP, Persian, …)

    Nobody is “afforded protection” against “generalized criticism” of WASPs or “generalized criticism” of Catholics.

    I don’t know what “generalized criticism” of Persians would be, except that they’re tasteless, which criticism is often made with no ill effects. Criticism of the Persian State (as it might be called) and calls for sanctions against it are certainly not problematic, often not even to Persians. Anti-Polonism and anti-Italianism have Wikipedia pages of their own; both seem pretty sparse on the last half-century. Of these articles “Anti-polonism” has less than half the number of words of “Antisemitism”, and “Anti-Italianism” less than half that. Anyway, nothing seems to have happened to idiot anti-polonist Jersey City mayor Steven Fulop (which is not a bad thing) so one wonders how effective this “protection” is.

  436. @academic gossip

    Not so. People lampoon and insult (both good-naturedly and nastily) Irish as drunks and belligerent; English as stuffy; Germans as perverted or as martinets; French as snooty or smelly; Italians as criminal and greasy; rural (especially southern) Americans as inbred and backward; Poles as stupid, Russians as sinister; Scandanavians as naïve; Christians as prudish and deluded; Catholics as paedophiles and their enablers – one could go on and on about the calumny heaped on any group of white people you may mention. It’s all ostensibly hilarious at best, deserved at worst (because the target is evil) and any objection is mocked or dismissed.

    Now, point out Jews are hypocriticsl, avaricious, neurotic, in control of media, academia, finance, etc. or mention their cronyism and opposition to immigration and multiculturalism in Israel out-marriage (absent conversion of the gentile spouse, usually a shiksa): see what reaction that will get you. Hell, just point out that Jews are not oppressed, anti-Semitism is a bogeyman, or that Israel is an expansionist aggressor, not a put-upon victim in geopolitics, and you’ll hear about it.

    1 isn’t actually a thing. If you think criticizing Irish or Italians or English or Poles is treated like criticizing Jews, you’re daft.

    The stated version of Rule 1 is correct. You don’t make “group-level generalized criticism” on the record against white sub-ethnicities, without facing backlash, firing, ostracism or the like. We were talking about media, right? Here’s the only example of recent US anti-Polonism given at Wikipedia and what happened:

    On 14 November 2007, Fox aired an episode of Back to You … which contained a controversial anti-Polish slur. The slur involved Marsh trying to convince the show’s lone Polish-American character, Gary, to go bowling after work by saying: “Come on, it’s in your blood, like kielbasa and collaborating with the Nazis.” Fox later apologised on 20 November 2007. They vowed never to broadcast the line of dialogue again in repeats and/or syndicated broadcasts. Fox stated that, “The line was delivered by a character known for being ignorant, clueless, and for saying outlandish things. Allowing the line to remain in the show, however, demonstrated poor judgment, and we apologise to anyone who was offended.”

    That’s in a comedy show. Where in US media can these things can be seriously said with impunity Italians, Germans, or Irish (as ethnics in America, not “national character” stereotypes talking about foreign countries)?

    Your complaint amounts to the fact that “white” is not recognized as an ethnicity to the extent WN would like. But that, again, is not a special rule that differentiates Jews and non-Jews. Jews are, and have been for some time, considered “white ethnics” in the United States.

    bis repetita :

    To make your …. point you should find examples of tolerated attacks [in the media] on non-Jewish ethnic/religious subgroups of whites, such as Irish or Italians.

    Groupings based entirely on immutable characteristics (Irish DNA) are protected in ways that groups defined partly by behavior (Catholic) or geography (Southern, rural) are not, which are more protected than non-ethnic classes entirely based on individual choice and behavior (Catholic priests). Mixtures of different groups (WASPs) are less protected than single subgroups (Germans). Some of those distinctions exist in the law. They explain some of your observations, most of which do not apply what we were talking about: statements in the media.

    The liberal attitude toward Southerners is functionally the same as legitimized racism. It is also based on geographic, political and historical distinctions outside the racial-ethnic-religious scheme of Rule 1, so not an exception. Southern whites in Athens Georgia and Austin Texas good, Mississippi bad, Maryland and Kansas mixed.

    Southern whites in Athens and Austin are by and large like Negro French or Scots Irish: foreign interlopers, carpetbaggers and their quislings.
