From the Washington Post opinion section:

To understand Trump’s support, we must think in terms of multiracial Whiteness

Opinion by Cristina Beltrán
Jan. 15, 2021 at 1:44 p.m. PST

Cristina Beltrán is an associate professor of social and cultural analysis at New York University. She is the author, most recently, of “Cruelty as Citizenship: How Migrant Suffering Sustains White Democracy.”

… What are we to make of Tarrio — and, more broadly, of Latino voters inspired by Trump? And what are we to make of unmistakably White mob violence that also includes non-White participants? I call this phenomenon multiracial whiteness — the promise that they, too, can lay claim to the politics of aggression, exclusion and domination.

Before Trump, conservatives seeking to appeal to Latinos typically embraced the politics of conservative multiculturalism. Politicians such as George W. Bush reached out to Latino voters by showing a familiarity with their language and history, emphasizing the values of diversity and inclusion. Depicting Latinos as a distinct and valuable part of America’s democratic mosaic, conservative multiculturalism connected Latino culture to Republican values, emphasizing conservative approaches to faith, patriotism and the traditional family.

Trump, by contrast, knows nothing of the history of Latinos in the United States and rarely even pretends to find value in Latinos’ distinct identities. Rather than offering his non-White voters recognition, Trump has offered them multiracial whiteness.

Rooted in America’s ugly history of white supremacy, indigenous dispossession and anti-blackness, multiracial whiteness is an ideology invested in the unequal distribution of land, wealth, power and privilege — a form of hierarchy in which the standing of one section of the population is premised on the debasement of others.

Multiracial whiteness reflects an understanding of whiteness as a political color and not simply a racial identity — a discriminatory worldview in which feelings of freedom and belonging are produced through the persecution and dehumanization of others.

Multiracial whiteness promises Latino Trump supporters freedom from the politics of diversity and recognition. For voters who see the very act of acknowledging one’s racial identity as itself racist, the politics of multiracial whiteness reinforces their desired approach to colorblind individualism. In the politics of multiracial whiteness, anyone can join the MAGA movement and engage in the wild freedom of unbridled rage and conspiracy theories.

I get the impression that Professor of Latinology Beltran doesn’t know much about Latin America.

    To the minoritarian there is nothing more hateful and "oppressive" than you having your own nice stuff on your own patch and not letting them in to loot.

    That's the core of it. Everything else in contemporary American politics is just implementation detail.

    The really foul thing is that even being let and free to make a buck or two--or three or millions--like everyone else was insufficient. You had to be put in your place. America had to be de-majoritized, balkanized.

    Is that the answer, Steve?

  2. The thing that continues to amaze me with the NY Times and the W Post is that they never seem to ask themselves how it would be to apply basic rules of fairness to their opinion pages. Nor do they seem to consider what the effect of their unfairness might be. Roughly every other day they run a piece complaining about white people; usually it is black people complaining about racism and occasionally it is Jews complaining about antisemitism. Never, never, never are white people invited to complain about either group. As a white man, I have long ago concluded that, consciously or not, these people at a minimum are utterly indifferent to my fate. If they aren’t consciously hostile. But I know that many of them believe in free inquiry, the value of debate etc., and I really can’t understand how they can continue to act as they do given their honest belief in these things. For years these papers have accused Trump of divisiveness while doing everything they can to abuse white people and inform us that our sins are legion and our time is over, and so forth. Trump, for all his faults, at least had the gumption to tell them to go to hell, and I can’t think of a better response.

    There's been a move lately to abandon objectivity in favor of active advocacy among journalistic outlets. They don't believe in presenting both sides, most recently seen with the NYT and the Tom Cotton op-ed. Basically, they figure, being fair didn't stop Trump from getting elected, so we have to go partisan instead.

    And now they can tell themselves it worked, though COVID had more to do with it than Times Square.

    We've become so inured to the overt bias and hate that it's hard to step back and realize how extraordinary it is to have the mainstream papers run daily essays espousing that white people are uniquely evil, are responsible for all the trouble in the world, and that the final solution is to remove them and their very essence -- i.e., their evil "whiteness."

    The analogue would be if all the major newspapers were calling for the removal of Jews and "Jewishness" as the final solution to achieve social justice.

    And yet these same people actually have the balls to claim that they can't figure out why normal white people (and normal non-white people with any sense) despise and oppose the Woke takeover of everything (by infiltration or seizure from above).

    Until you realise that they are at war with themselves, understanding will fail you.

    Your second mistake isn't realising that they are indifferent to your fate, but failing to realise that they are also indifferent to the fate of minorities.

    It is all about them.

    Having said that, among them will be some who enjoy humiliating others, some who enjoy saving others and all of the full range of human impetuses.

    Ultimately, you need only ask yourself what characteristics do they mean by whiteness and then you can imagine a person who has decided that those characteristics are without any personal benefit or decency at all. They will be way off-kilter, just like their perception of reality and their attempts to be logical.

    Of course, many people on this site might do the same with femininity, blackness or Jewishness, but lol, that's for another time.

    One thing that comment sections have shown is that many, many people can write just as well as, or even better than, most professional journalists working today. Everyone knows that the real action is in the comments section. Many people just skim articles and then jump right into the comments.

    Thanks to FB and Twitter, everyone thinks their voice must be heard. No one cares what "the journalist" actually thinks. Media outlets that don't allow comments wither and die as a result.

    I have a solution which would handily kill two birds with one stone, but she wouldn’t like it. Note also: “White Democracy” — two more birds, now associated together, that are ready for slaughter.

    a form of hierarchy in which the standing of one section of the population is premised on the debasement of others.

    Next she’ll figure out that it’s better to be rich than to be poor. Hey maybe that’s why more people try to be rich instead of try to be poor? But what’s the racial angle in that? How can that disadvantage and dispossess white people? Forget I asked.

    Multiracial whiteness reflects an understanding of whiteness as a political color and not simply a racial identity

    Ergo, anything we don’t like we will call ‘white’. It no longer actually has to be white to be ‘white’ right?

    Latin America, you say? Latin America doesn’t exist for the purposes of our discussion, white man.

  8. Yahoo News turned off their comments a few months ago.

    And it’s hard to remember now, but back around ten years ago, most every news site and online newspaper had comments sections: MSNBC, Baltimore Sun, etc.

    When too many comments criticized the reporting, they were designated as “hateful” and the news organizations removed the comments. So the Post is just following trends here.

    I’ve also noticed more and more YouTube videos don’t allow comments. Pretty soon Web 2.0 (or whatever it was) will be gone entirely. Even the old print newspapers had letters to the editor sections.

    The question is: Do people notice that reader comments have disappeared and wonder why?

  11. If you cannot beat the right in a civil debate, you must silence them. Sounds like the failed old Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics.

  12. As others have pointed out, what’s fascinating about ‘whiteness’ is it implies a collective set of responsibilities and liabilities and debts. But ‘whiteness’ cannot account for any sets of collective self-interest, pride or consciousness.

    Outgroups from the core population can only ever have collective self-interests but never collective responsibilities, guilt or self-reflection. In that sense we can say the collective identity of Western peoples have become that of a depressed person suffering from low-esteem, inappropriate guilt and prone to being taken advantage of by less self-effacing personalities. All Western people, when confronted with ‘immigrants’ feel cultural cringe. (But strangely don’t feel it when their replacements aren’t around)

    But contrast the collective identities of unassimilated ethnic outgroups seems positively narcissistic and anti-social. White people have collective identities of somebody with a major depression and outgroups that of Cluster B personality disorders.

    Is it normal for a society to constantly harangue and denigrate it’s core population? Only in instances of foreign elites conquering the native ones. 1066, the Machu conquest of China, many such cases.

    And, again, upper middle class newspaper staffers still don’t get why Latinos in America might want to restrict immigration. It’s a god damn mystery why those most negatively effected economically by immigration would want to stop it.

    "Is it normal for a society to constantly harangue and denigrate it’s core population? "

    Once the Party has assessed that it does not need a particular group to get elected, that group may be targeted. Hitler would not have targeted the Jews, nor Stalin the kulaks, had their support been essential.
    In states which allow mail-in ballots, vote harvesting, in-person voting without I.D., and voter registration for illegals who are given driver's licenses, it may not even be necessary to have the support of a majority of persons legally entitled to vote, to win an election.
    Because the Party's support is largely an army of the disaffected, composed of people who do not like Whites, particularly White men who are not young, we are now in the cross-hairs.

    Minoritarianism has really ramped up the flat out lying about immigration to a level that a lot of people--people of the sort who staff newspapers--really have no idea that immigration is actually bad for particular people.

    Back in the Nazi nineties there was a bipartisan "Commission on Immigration Reform" chaired by the noted black lesbian Nazi Barbara Jordan. Not surprisingly it recommended rigorous enforcement to shut down illegal immigration, cutting back legal immigration, eliminating extended family reunification, refugees and basically ending unskilled immigration. The evidence was clear immigration was suppressing wages and unemployment of the least skilled Americans (and Jordan was not a race traitor).

    But that was then. Times have changed. Now immigration is just "who we are". It adds "diversity"--which is good. People who oppose it must be Nazis--ergo deplorable white gentiles, not Latinos.

    Do you mean by "opportunity", the opportunity to unite blacks, who are for the most part conservative, except on civil rights, and Latinos, who are for the most part conservative and extremely family-oriented, with the white working class in order to overthrow the established order?

    Nope?

    I knew that was a bridge too far.

  23. Angelic Blacks are replacing “Native” Americans as mythical creatures to be worshipped.

    We were always told to worship the poor Indian, who sobbed whenever he had to harm a hair on some poor buffalo. The poor Indian only took what he had to, and only after a long spiritual commune with the animal.

    This, of course, was bullshit. But now, Comanches and Cherokees have fallen out of favor, apparently because they aren’t culturally leftist.

    Blacks are the New Magic Creatures. But there is a difference: no one proposes we actually study the ways of ancient Africans and copy their lifestyle. There’s an odd silence about who they were as a people in the past (not really odd, of course).

    But unlike Indians, Blacks are vengeful gods who are ready to rule (after taking revenge)! The old Indian focus seemed to fit the White need to feel guilty. The new Black focus is more about the enduring desire of White people to take a whipping and publicly be humiliated.

All Western people, when confronted with 'immigrants' feel cultural cringe. (But strangely don't feel it when their replacements aren't around)

    But contrast the collective identities of unassimilated ethnic outgroups seems positively narcissistic and anti-social. White people have collective identities of somebody with a major depression and outgroups that of Cluster B personality disorders.

    “Is it normal for a society to constantly harangue and denigrate it’s core population? ”

    Once the Party has assessed that it does not need a particular group to get elected, that group may be targeted. Hitler would not have targeted the Jews, nor Stalin the kulaks, had their support been essential.
    In states which allow mail-in ballots, vote harvesting, in-person voting without I.D., and voter registration for illegals who are given driver’s licenses, it may not even be necessary to have the support of a majority of persons legally entitled to vote, to win an election.
    Because the Party’s support is largely an army of the disaffected, composed of people who do not like Whites, particularly White men who are not young, we are now in the cross-hairs.

  40. The Left realizes that the weak point of the Coalition of the Fringes is that immigrants, particularly Latinos, will not embrace their designated role as People of Color but rather choose a “white” identity. A “white” identity, BTW, is not synonymous with white skin – you can be, like Twinkie, yellow (or brown) on the outside but white inside. If race is a social construct, you can construct yourself to be white too – this cuts both ways.

    Therefore, the Left must do all that it can to keep immigrants (especially Latinos) on the reservation or their math just doesn’t work. There are still a lot of white people and you need minorities to vote not just disproportionately Democrat but STRONGLY disproportionately in order to overcome that, like blacks who vote 95% Dem. If Latinos turn out to be only mildly pro-Dem then you have a Florida type situation where Republicans can continue to win and the Democrat dream of making every state and city in America like Chicago where the last Republican mayor was elected in 1927 cannot come true.

  53. It’s sour grapes, I admit, but I am glad I won’t be spending my retirement pursuing an M.A. in Latin American Studies. I did have a cool idea for demonstrating a pretty long, pretty deep knowledge of the area: posts on Portuguese Wikipedia. They’re public, they’re refereed (sort of), and they show how much or how little of the lingo I know. But I saw I was about to get into an edit-war with various young petulant nameless Brazilians, and thought that this would be a very bad look, very off-putting for a professor, even an Latinologist one.

    My enthusiasm had already been cooling, not being sure exactly what I would do in a Latin American Studies Department and seeing all too exactly what other people do in one. My real interest at this point was Portugal – but I’d need more coursework to get into a Department of Spanish & Portuguese. My idea in any case was to write a thesis inspired by something I’d read decades ago about the U.S.S.R.: it was an empire that Russians themselves could hardly afford to go visiting in. I thought for people in Portugal, the Portuguese empire was the same way. I pictured myself reading periodicals and steamship brochures – airline magazines before there were airlines – to get the view of such Portuguese who did travel. Were they, uh, startlingly candid?

    My real enthusiasm was, and still is even as prospects dim, medical school. I haven’t been formally rejected but I can guess. All my numbers are good except one: my age. No regrets, though. Studying for and then taking the MCAT proved the most stimulating thing I’ve done in my sixties.

    So, how will I spend my retirement? Not in any school, though the disciplines if any would do me good. I might visit South Africa a lot, and study Afrikaans before it vanishes. Or – and this makes the most sense for someone in Texas and on a reduced income – just visit Mexico a lot. I would like to bicycle from Matamoros to the Pacific Ocean – going not west but south. Look at a map. I wonder if Latinologists ever do.

  54. It’s clear that they’re struggling with the clean, succinct Woke theory when it meets the flesh-and-bone reality of American life.

    A much more accurate description of the divide is rather between the American peoples on the one hand and the multiracial monoculture empire and its electoral coalition assembled to subdue and rule the former.

    In the particular example, Tarrio is of Afro-Cuban descent, but views himself as a part of the American peoples and well within the cultural milieu of the Miami Cuban exiles who are generally grateful for a home in the United States and who maintain a cultural memory of oppression under the fist of a totalitarian Communist regime which operated similarly to the current American Left. They’re frustrated that they can’t draft him into the fringe coalition for the purpose of subduing the American peoples rather than identifying with him; and if instead Tarrio had joined BLM according to script he’d be indulged and praised for initiating violence rather than charged for what appears to be passive participation in a game of “capture the flag.”

    "Trump, by contrast, knows nothing of the history of Latinos in the United States and rarely even pretends to find value in Latinos’ distinct identities. Rather than offering his non-White voters recognition, Trump has offered them multiracial whiteness."

    Yup, why would I want to identify with a country I left rather than a country I went to? I mean, if I go to France, I'm going to learn French and eat baguettes and smelly cheese. I'm not going to sit there with my feet up demanding they serve me Coke with my hamburger and complaining they don't recognize the influence of the American revolution on the French one.


    "Multiracial whiteness promises Latino Trump supporters freedom from the politics of diversity and recognition. For voters who see the very act of acknowledging one’s racial identity as itself racist, the politics of multiracial whiteness reinforces their desired approach to colorblind individualism. In the politics of multiracial whiteness, anyone can join the MAGA movement and engage in the wild freedom of unbridled rage and conspiracy theories."

    Yeah, I can sit there with you guys and analyze whether my position in the progressive stack is high enough to criticize a white woman (is she lesbian? but wait, maybe I can claim to be genderfluid?), or go over to the other side and just be an American. Hmmm....

If you watched “Narcos” , which is set mostly in Colombia and Mexico, Latino cast members for the most part doesn’t look all that different from a Sergio Leone spaghetti Western or a Martin Scorcese mob movie. There are a few Indio characters, but most could pass for Spanish or Italian. 2 of the biggest actors, Pedro Pascal is the protagonist of “The Mandalorian” and Diego Luna was cast as the co-lead in a lesser “Star Wars” movie. Both of whom could easily be cast in “Godfather 4”, were there such a movie.

    Had the experience a few times of being on vacation in Florida and seeing some fair-haired light-eyed folks who began speaking Spanish; they could have passed for Scots or Irishmen. They were from Argentina and Chile.

    Cristina herself appears to be a castiza. She looks whiter than AOC.

The photos in which she is captured “in motion” teaching in her classroom she looks particularly Euro.

  62. Cristina Beltrán is an associate professor of social and cultural analysis at New York University. She is the author, most recently, of “Cruelty as Citizenship: How Migrant Suffering Sustains White Democracy.”

    The gist of minoritarianism is the right of minorities to glom onto/loot the majority.

    And it’s revealing that under the minoritarian dispensation, there’s a continuous stream of pronouncements and articles and TV/media and books that are not just wrong, but just outright ridiculous nonsense, often complete inversions of the truth.

    The title of her book is just an obvious inversion of the truth. The very white US was super-nice back when i was a tyke in 1960 and “migrants”, were pretty much irrelevant–except for providing cheap labor for truck farming. Latinos in general have nothing to do with why the US is “nice”. In fact, defeating Mexico and populating the West/SW with white people rather than Mexicans is what made that territory “nice”–orderly, pleasant prosperous.

    If the US was completely unconnected to Mexico, there were no migrants … the US would be just as nice … and in fact nicer.

    In reality, “migrants” coming to the US have lowered wages, driven up housing prices, crappified schools, raised tax burdens and stolen large swathes of territory away from whites, creating Latinostans. An accurate book title would be

    “Cruelty as immigration: How White Loss And Suffering Sustain Migrant Invader Communities”

    ~~

    The big minoritarian lie is that minorities are virtuous and white gentiles oppressive.

    But the reality is closer to the reverse:

    White gentiles create nice–prosperous, pleasant, orderly–communities and nations, which minorities seek to glom onto.

    Whites did oppress people–the native Indians to take their land, blacks for plantation agricultural labor. Minoritarians have tried to create this cartoon history where “America is built on backs of blacks” and is “a nation of immigrants”. But–an odd case in history–we have comparables like Australia, Canada, New Zealand that shows this is nonsense.

    Anglo-Saxons showing up in a land with some resources create a nice place. Doesn’t really matter who is there. And other people pouring in are unnecessary–and perhaps detrimental–to that “niceness”.

    The founders could have sealed the border in 1783, abolished slavery and shipped the blacks back to Africa, grown by natural increase and … America would be a ridiculously nice place today. Actually a much nicer place with a brighter future.

    America didn’t need blacks, or Jews, or the Irish or the Chinese or Italians. Heck it didn’t even need the Germans, the corn, soybean and wheat farms would just be a little less orderly. And it certainly didn’t need the flood of Mexicans and Central Americans to be pleasant and prosperous.

    This reality is obvious from the “revealed preference” of minorities. Do they actually flee from white gentile oppression? Run to Africa, to Israel, to Mexico, to Puerto Rico, to China, to India, while whites lock them in camps to keep them here laboring away? Uh …

All Western people, when confronted with 'immigrants' feel cultural cringe. (But strangely don't feel it when their replacements aren't around)

The very white US was super-nice back when i was a tyke in 1960 and "migrants", were pretty much irrelevant--except for providing cheap labor for truck farming. Latinos in general have nothing to do with why the US is "nice". In fact, defeating Mexico and populating the West/SW with white people rather than Mexicans is what made that territory "nice"--orderly, pleasant prosperous.

    If the US was completely unconnected to Mexico, there were no migrants ... the US would be just as nice ... and in fact nicer.

    In reality, "migrants" coming to the US have lowered wages, driven up housing prices, crappified schools, raised tax burdens and stolen large swathes of territory away from whites, creating Latinostans. An accurate book title would be

    "Cruelty as immigration: How White Loss And Suffering Sustain Migrant Invader Communities"

    ~~

    The big minoritarian lie is that minorities are virtuous and white gentiles oppressive.

    But the reality is closer to the reverse:

    White gentiles create nice--prosperous, pleasant, orderly--communities and nations, which minorities seek to glom onto.


    Whites did oppress people--the native Indians to take their land, blacks for plantation agricultural labor. Minoritarians have tried to create this cartoon history where "America is built on backs of blacks" and is "a nation of immigrants". But--an odd case in history--we have comparables like Australia, Canada, New Zealand that shows this is nonsense.

    Anglo-Saxons showing up in a land with some resources create a nice place. Doesn't really matter who is there. And other people pouring in are unnecessary--and perhaps detrimental--to that "niceness".

    The founders could have sealed the border in 1783, abolished slavery and shipped the blacks back to Africa, grown by natural increase and ... America would be a ridiculously nice place today. Actually a much nicer place with a brighter future.

    America didn't need blacks, or Jews, or the Irish or the Chinese or Italians. Heck it didn't even need the Germans, the corn, soybean and wheat farms would just be a little less orderly. And it certainly didn't need the flood of Mexicans and Central Americans to be pleasant and prosperous.


    This reality is obvious from the "revealed preference" of minorities. Do they actually flee from white gentile oppression? Run to Africa, to Israel, to Mexico, to Puerto Rico, to China, to India, while whites lock them in camps to keep them here laboring away? Uh ...

    To commemorate MLK Day, the head of NumbersUSA, the immigration reduction group, has written a great article describing how civil rights gains came to blacks doing better due to immigration restrictions that began in 1924. He uses history to make a convincing case:

    “African Americans made significant gains in industrial employment, particularly in the steel, automobile, shipbuilding, and meatpacking industries. It was the importance of Black labor and consumption to the U.S. economy that helped create space for the successes of Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights leaders.”

    Today’s Black leaders join the Democratic Party and immigration lobbyists to call for lots more immigration. It is tragic self-sabotage but no one calls them out for it. Where would Blacks who are the descendants of American slaves be today if we hadn’t had tens of millions of immigrants come in since the 1970’s? We can never know but I am sure they’d be better off. Probably much better off.

This is also an example of how white altruism and lack of racial awareness has rebounded right back into our faces. This is exactly why multiracial/multiculturalism is a toxic mix that’s sure to bring down a country.

    The Civil War--and the 14th Amendment--now serve as an aid to tyranny.

    I have no truck with slavery. It is a long existing human institution--since settlement and the neolithic revolution--so all the huffing and puffing about it are ridiculous. But it is a foul one. People are inherently free and should be able to labor for themselves. Anyone held--slave, serf--has an inherent right to resist, to escape.

    But that said--and more or less the same principle--secession is the right of any free people as well. See the Declaration of Independence. It's right there in the first line.

    In a free nation, the government--and in fact all parties--are "on notice" that if they misbehave, some faction might just pack up and leave. It's supposed to be like a marriage: It has to work--be a net benefit--for all the parties involved.

    That the secession issue was "settled" on the battlefield, now fortifies a nasty minoritarian tyranny. The deplorable faction--which includes a clear majority of white gentile core, of native born Americans, of productive people--can be bossed around by a parasitic coalition, with the fantasy that the deplorables are oppressive when in fact the real oppression is the parasite coalition keeping the deplorable host locked down.

    If some of them got together and came out as a united front they might get people to listen and rethink immigration. At the very least the woke and progressives won't call them bigots and white supremacists.

    Certainly more immigration is going to make life much harder for blacks, worse even than for whites because they already start with having much less, on average, than whites do and compete directly with immigrants for everything in big cities.

    As others have pointed out, what's fascinating about 'whiteness' is it implies a collective set of responsibilities and liabilities and debts. But 'whiteness' cannot account for any sets of collective self-interest, pride or consciousness.

    Outgroups from the core population can only ever have collective self-interests but never collective responsibilities, guilt or self-reflection. In that sense we can say the collective identity of Western peoples have become that of a depressed person suffering from low-esteem, inappropriate guilt and prone to being taken advantage of by less self-effacing personalities. All Western people, when confronted with 'immigrants' feel cultural cringe. (But strangely don't feel it when their replacements aren't around)

    But contrast the collective identities of unassimilated ethnic outgroups seems positively narcissistic and anti-social. White people have collective identities of somebody with a major depression and outgroups that of Cluster B personality disorders.

    Is it normal for a society to constantly harangue and denigrate it's core population? Only in instances of foreign elites conquering the native ones. 1066, the Machu conquest of China, many such cases.

    Minoritarianism has really ramped up the flat out lying about immigration to a level that a lot of people–people of the sort who staff newspapers–really have no idea that immigration is actually bad for particular people.

    Back in the Nazi nineties there was a bipartisan “Commission on Immigration Reform” chaired by the noted black lesbian Nazi Barbara Jordan. Not surprisingly it recommended rigorous enforcement to shut down illegal immigration, cutting back legal immigration, eliminating extended family reunification, refugees and basically ending unskilled immigration. The evidence was clear immigration was suppressing wages and unemployment of the least skilled Americans (and Jordan was not a race traitor).

    But that was then. Times have changed. Now immigration is just “who we are”. It adds “diversity”–which is good. People who oppose it must be Nazis–ergo deplorable white gentiles, not Latinos.

    NYU is so rich that they can buy genius along with real estate. They merged with the old Brooklyn Polytech Institute and now call it their engineering school. They run a top math institute, Courant. They hired a bunch of philosophers and became the #1 philosophy school, for what that is worth, ahead of Princeton and Pittsburgh, the traditional leading American schools in philosophy.

    In the early 1970s NYU, which since the 1890s had a traditional campus in the Bronx, in addition to a downtown urban campus, sold off the Bronx campus to the city for a junior college, spun off the engineering school which then merged with Brooklyn Poly, and consolidated the remaining programs in Lower Manhattan. This was because of near bankruptcy resulting from poor planning, overexpansion, and the approach of the South Bronx ghetto towards the Bronx campus. Rhe recent Brooklyn Poly merger was a homecoming of sorts.

    It's sour grapes, I admit, but I am glad I won't be spending my retirement pursuing an M.A. in Latin American Studies. I did have a cool idea for demonstrating a pretty long, pretty deep knowledge of the area: posts on Portuguese Wikipedia. They're public, they're refereed (sort of), and they show how much or how little of the lingo I know. But I saw I was about to get into an edit-war with various young petulant nameless Brazilians, and thought that this would be a very bad look, very off-putting for a professor, even an Latinologist one.

    My enthusiasm had already been cooling, not being sure exactly what I would do in a Latin American Studies Department and seeing all too exactly what other people do in one. My real interest at this point was Portugal - but I'd need more coursework to get into a Department of Spanish & Portuguese. My idea in any case was to write a thesis inspired by something I'd read decades ago about the U.S.S.R.: it was an empire that Russians themselves could hardly afford to go visiting in. I thought for people in Portugal, the Portuguese empire was the same way. I pictured myself reading periodicals and steamship brochures - airline magazines before there were airlines - to get the view of such Portuguese who did travel. Were they, uh, startlingly candid?

    My real enthusiasm was, and still is even as prospects dim, medical school. I haven't been formally rejected but I can guess. All my numbers are good except one: my age. No regrets, though. Studying for and then taking the MCAT proved the most stimulating thing I've done in my sixties.

    So, how will I spend my retirement? Not in any school, though the disciplines if any would do me good. I might visit South Africa a lot, and study Afrikaans before it vanishes. Or - and this makes the most sense for someone in Texas and on a reduced income - just visit Mexico a lot. I would like to bicycle from Matamoros to the Pacific Ocean - going not west but south. Look at a map. I wonder if Latinologists ever do.

    Meh.... don't put Dugin in the company of serious, if flawed thinkers (Evola being an oddity, a throwback to the occult 19th C Theosophists with some innovative thoughts.)

    Henry Corbin was an Eranos-Heigegger connection, while Spengler was out of picture as a materialist.

    Although they differ in some respects, these people are often grouped together: Fritjof Schuon, Rene Guenon, Titus Burckhardt, Martin Lings, Sayyed Hossein Nasr, Marco Pallis, Ananda Coomarswamy, Julius Evola & some others. I’ve read many of their stuff – and would advise anyone who has spare time on his hands to do so – but I must admit I am highly critical of the whole group.

    Good things about them all: they’re polyglot erudites; artistically sensitive, cultured & cosmopolitan; mostly, know their stuff & won’t misrepresent a tradition they expatiate upon (Islamic Sufism, Vedanta, Christian medieval art, …).

    Bad things: most of these guys (though not all) are Islamic converts, therefore I am not persuaded by their supposed universalism; they are crackpot political reactionaries without elementary knowledge of the world’s realities; they are basically – obscurantists, even the best among them like Burckhardt (while Guenon & Evola could be considered psychos by any sane-minded shrink). They, virtually all of them, are very uneasy with our Greco-Roman heritage of individualism, rationality, skepticism & Prometheanism; they abhor the Renaissance & all artistic & scientific development after the Middle Ages, including Copernicus & the rest (Darwin is also an ogre, while 20th C physics is, I suppose, something they hadn’t heard of). Heliocentric system is abomination, while Enlightenment the final nail in the Western culture.

    They should not be confused with, I would call them- Eranos circle. I won’t delve into technical & organizational elements, but they were frequently supposed to be Jungians, after the most influential member, Swiss psychologist C.G.Jung who financially & in all possible ways tried to keep this banquet of free & erudite spirits. Some were, bit not most, influenced by a few of his ideas The most read & notable people from that circle were Henry Corbin, Mircea Eliade, Heinrich Zimmer, Gilles Quispel, Gershom Scholem, Joseph Campbell, Erich Neumann, Herbert Read & some other guys (Karl Kereny is also a famous attendant, but I haven’t read him because he seemed to offer not much).

    Unlike Perennialists, the Eranos bunch were true scholars of myth, esoterica, philosophy & culture. True, they also share a streak of obscurantism with the Perennialists, but were far from aggressiveness & anti-modernity of the Guenon-Evola axis. Corbin is sometimes funny with his high rhetoric & lapses into obscurantism (he praises “Goethean science”), but these are minor transgressions.

    True, Eliade & Corbin sometimes refer to Guenon and his flock, but they should not be confused with the Perennialist gang.

    I have no truck with slavery. It is a long existing human institution–since settlement and the neolithic revolution–so all the huffing and puffing about it are ridiculous. But it is a foul one. People are inherently free and should be able to labor for themselves. Anyone held–slave, serf–has an inherent right to resist, to escape.

    But that said–and more or less the same principle–secession is the right of any free people as well. See the Declaration of Independence. It’s right there in the first line.

    In a free nation, the government–and in fact all parties–are “on notice” that if they misbehave, some faction might just pack up and leave. It’s supposed to be like a marriage: It has to work–be a net benefit–for all the parties involved.

    That the secession issue was “settled” on the battlefield, now fortifies a nasty minoritarian tyranny. The deplorable faction–which includes a clear majority of white gentile core, of native born Americans, of productive people–can be bossed around by a parasitic coalition, with the fantasy that the deplorables are oppressive when in fact the real oppression is the parasite coalition keeping the deplorable host locked down.

So basically, the only way to live somewhat safely in the hood is to have a small paramilitary contingent walking around 24/7 keeping a look out.

    It is tragic self-sabotage but no one calls them out for it. Where would Blacks who are the descendants of American slaves be today if we hadn’t had tens of millions of immigrants come in since the 1970’s? We can never know but I am sure they’d be better off. Probably much better off.

    Where would whites who are the descendants of settlers be if we hadn’t had boatloads of African immigrants come in since the 17th century? In a Canada, minus the ice.

    Agree. I object to ceding territory as much as the next guy, but it's ridiculous. (White people would have to overthrow minoritarianism and be willing to do explicit territorial re-acquisition.)

    Compare the demographics and crime of say State College with that area of North Philly.

    I realize Temple--like U. of Chicago--has its own huge policy force to try and maintain a little civilizational outpost amidst the natives. But seriously why bathe yourself in black crime and dysfunction?

    The demographics map shows a cluster of white people around Temple U. I looked up the uni’s website and they say the university has a force of 120 (!) police officers that patrol campus and the area around to guarantee people’s safety. So basically, the only way to live somewhat safely in the hood is to have a small paramilitary contingent walking around 24/7 keeping a look out.

    This guy’s mistake was deciding to live further away probably for cheaper rent. I imagine the little cluster of safety around the school is much more expensive.

    Isn’t U of C police force the biggest police force in the state? And 100 years ago Hyde Park south east side was the most expensive section of the city. Amazing 15 room gorgeous mansions on 2 acres of lovely garden 20 minute train ride from downtown.

    But mansions and gardens need workers. And the Black Plague workers got off at the 53? 55? street station and destroyed the neighborhood. Having destroyed Chicago, a couple generations later the Black Plague got tight back on the train and destroyed Milwaukee and other Wisconsin towns on the railroad line. No wonder suburbs resist subway and bus lines. Or why we can’t have nice things like public transit.

    Interesting that the non-Buckley Right (Alt Right, Dissident Right, NeoRx, Trad Caths, Traditionalists) agrees with the Left: America’s problem is its Anglo heritage, and the answer is the application of some sexy, spooky German (Spengler, Heidegger) or Italian (Evola) or Russian (Dugin) snake oil. Back to Europe!

    Replies: @Bardon Kaldian

    Meh…. don’t put Dugin in the company of serious, if flawed thinkers (Evola being an oddity, a throwback to the occult 19th C Theosophists with some innovative thoughts.)

    Henry Corbin was an Eranos-Heigegger connection, while Spengler was out of picture as a materialist.

    Although they differ in some respects, these people are often grouped together: Fritjof Schuon, Rene Guenon, Titus Burckhardt, Martin Lings, Sayyed Hossein Nasr, Marco Pallis, Ananda Coomarswamy, Julius Evola & some others. I’ve read many of their stuff – and would advise anyone who has spare time on his hands to do so – but I must admit I am highly critical of the whole group.

    Good things about them all: they’re polyglot erudites; artistically sensitive, cultured & cosmopolitan; mostly, know their stuff & won’t misrepresent a tradition they expatiate upon (Islamic Sufism, Vedanta, Christian medieval art, …).

    Bad things: most of these guys (though not all) are Islamic converts, therefore I am not persuaded by their supposed universalism; they are crackpot political reactionaries without elementary knowledge of the world’s realities; they are basically – obscurantists, even the best among them like Burckhardt (while Guenon & Evola could be considered psychos by any sane-minded shrink). They, virtually all of them, are very uneasy with our Greco-Roman heritage of individualism, rationality, skepticism & Prometheanism; they abhor the Renaissance & all artistic & scientific development after the Middle Ages, including Copernicus & the rest (Darwin is also an ogre, while 20th C physics is, I suppose, something they hadn’t heard of). Heliocentric system is abomination, while Enlightenment the final nail in the Western culture.

    They should not be confused with, I would call them- Eranos circle. I won’t delve into technical & organizational elements, but they were frequently supposed to be Jungians, after the most influential member, Swiss psychologist C.G.Jung who financially & in all possible ways tried to keep this banquet of free & erudite spirits. Some were, bit not most, influenced by a few of his ideas The most read & notable people from that circle were Henry Corbin, Mircea Eliade, Heinrich Zimmer, Gilles Quispel, Gershom Scholem, Joseph Campbell, Erich Neumann, Herbert Read & some other guys (Karl Kereny is also a famous attendant, but I haven’t read him because he seemed to offer not much).

    Unlike Perennialists, the Eranos bunch were true scholars of myth, esoterica, philosophy & culture. True, they also share a streak of obscurantism with the Perennialists, but were far from aggressiveness & anti-modernity of the Guenon-Evola axis. Corbin is sometimes funny with his high rhetoric & lapses into obscurantism (he praises “Goethean science”), but these are minor transgressions.

    True, Eliade & Corbin sometimes refer to Guenon and his flock, but they should not be confused with the Perennialist gang.

    I wouldn't put it past Soros-funded prosecutors to slow-walk things, but another bigger reason, affecting most of the country, is that because of the COVID-craze, there have been no jury trials since last March. That will lead (probably already is leading) to more lenient plea deals to criminal suspects to clear the growing backlog. We will feel the effects of that for years to come and it will be horrible.

    Now, it seems (but I cannot be sure), they're completely shutting off comments on any articles to do with race, or that talk about "the way America is today."

    PS: I see that they've just edited the "Comments are not available for this story" message and added a footnote:

Both of whom could easily be cast in "Godfather 4", were there such a movie.

    But mansions and gardens need workers. And the Black Plague workers got off at the 53? 55? street station and destroyed the neighborhood. Having destroyed Chicago, a couple generations later the Black Plague got tight back on the train and destroyed Milwaukee and other Wisconsin towns on the railroad line. No wonder suburbs resist subway and bus lines. Or why we can’t have nice things like public transit.

    Best thing about California is the blacks are disappearing and even the Jewish immigrants don’t like them.

    We've become so inured to the overt bias and hate that it's hard to step back and realize how extraordinary it is to have the mainstream papers run daily essays espousing that white people are uniquely evil, are responsible for all the trouble in the world, and that the final solution is to remove them and their very essence -- i.e., their evil "whiteness."

    The analogue would be if all the major newspapers were calling for the removal of Jews and "Jewishness" as the final solution to achieve social justice.

    And yet these same people actually have the balls to claim that they can't figure out why normal white people (and normal non-white people with any sense) despise and oppose the Woke takeover of everything (by infiltration or seizure from above).

    It’s not very strange at all. All their lives they have been told that whitey is evil and Dances With Wolves is representative of all non whites. It’s no different to an abused child who gets told it is his own fault. Pretty soon the child will start to develop some major issues and hate themselves. Very few would go on to become happy members of society and have bucket loads of self esteem.

    You might say, oh but what about the evidence? Facts, evidence, logic was never part of the equation. Belief is the guiding star of humanity. It would be as difficult to shake them from this belief as it would be to convert a fundamental Christian or a Jihadist to a different religion.

    In fact it is the most intelligent who fall for it more easily. I guess because it takes a certain amount of intelligence to fool yourself that Marxism is actually good for you. A dumber person will just see the obvious drawbacks and make his conclusions based on that. I suppose that explains why “the better parts of Europe” have already fallen completely under the spell. While East Europe and large parts of America still have some fight left in them.

  157. This kind thinking in the cultural marxist scene is not new. A related concept is “homonationalisms,” which are seen as homosexual affirming cultural discourses that reinforce white supremacy. For example, “pink washing” would be a kind of homonationalist discourse.

    The Civil War--and the 14th Amendment--now serve as an aid to tyranny.

    I have no truck with slavery. It is a long existing human institution--since settlement and the neolithic revolution--so all the huffing and puffing about it are ridiculous. But it is a foul one. People are inherently free and should be able to labor for themselves. Anyone held--slave, serf--has an inherent right to resist, to escape.

    But that said--and more or less the same principle--secession is the right of any free people as well. See the Declaration of Independence. It's right there in the first line.

    In a free nation, the government--and in fact all parties--are "on notice" that if they misbehave, some faction might just pack up and leave. It's supposed to be like a marriage: It has to work--be a net benefit--for all the parties involved.

    That the secession issue was "settled" on the battlefield, now fortifies a nasty minoritarian tyranny. The deplorable faction--which includes a clear majority of white gentile core, of native born Americans, of productive people--can be bossed around by a parasitic coalition, with the fantasy that the deplorables are oppressive when in fact the real oppression is the parasite coalition keeping the deplorable host locked down.

    The separation of people could be voluntary with separate, autonomous (or semi-autonomous) regions, whether they be states or nations.

    Indeed, there is a great opportunity right now for this. The extreme propaganda pressure is affecting not only whites in a negative way, but blacks too.

    I read an article about some American black man who moved to Africa who said he felt better living in a new country without the racial history.

    Imagine, if someone could artfully propose "separation reparations". E.g., 10k + 1 year's salary to any black person who moves to Africa. It would be voluntary, but many might want to take it, even at a loss of income.

    It would be so cheap too, as 10k over 40 million people is just 400 billion. Biden has proposed a 1.9 trillion stimulus bill. How about we raise that up to 2.3 trillion?

    But just talking about it is a good thing, because this would strike fear in the anti-white propagandists, as their power source could leave. Perhaps, this would discourage the continuation of their rhetoric, at least to some degree. And the less anti-white rhetoric, the better.

    Cristina Beltrán is an associate professor of social and cultural analysis at New York University. She is the author, most recently, of “Cruelty as Citizenship: How Migrant Suffering Sustains White Democracy.”
     
    The gist of minoritarianism is the right of minorities to glom onto/loot the majority.

    And it's revealing that under the minoritarian dispensation, there's a continuous stream of pronouncements and articles and TV/media and books that are not just wrong, but just outright ridiculous nonsense, often complete inversions of the truth.

    The title of her book is just an obvious inversion of the truth. The very white US was super-nice back when i was a tyke in 1960 and "migrants", were pretty much irrelevant--except for providing cheap labor for truck farming. Latinos in general have nothing to do with why the US is "nice". In fact, defeating Mexico and populating the West/SW with white people rather than Mexicans is what made that territory "nice"--orderly, pleasant prosperous.

    If the US was completely unconnected to Mexico, there were no migrants ... the US would be just as nice ... and in fact nicer.

    In reality, "migrants" coming to the US have lowered wages, driven up housing prices, crappified schools, raised tax burdens and stolen large swathes of territory away from whites, creating Latinostans. An accurate book title would be

    "Cruelty as immigration: How White Loss And Suffering Sustain Migrant Invader Communities"

    ~~

    The big minoritarian lie is that minorities are virtuous and white gentiles oppressive.

    But the reality is closer to the reverse:

    White gentiles create nice--prosperous, pleasant, orderly--communities and nations, which minorities seek to glom onto.


    Whites did oppress people--the native Indians to take their land, blacks for plantation agricultural labor. Minoritarians have tried to create this cartoon history where "America is built on backs of blacks" and is "a nation of immigrants". But--an odd case in history--we have comparables like Australia, Canada, New Zealand that shows this is nonsense.

    Anglo-Saxons showing up in a land with some resources create a nice place. Doesn't really matter who is there. And other people pouring in are unnecessary--and perhaps detrimental--to that "niceness".

    The founders could have sealed the border in 1783, abolished slavery and shipped the blacks back to Africa, grown by natural increase and ... America would be a ridiculously nice place today. Actually a much nicer place with a brighter future.

    America didn't need blacks, or Jews, or the Irish or the Chinese or Italians. Heck it didn't even need the Germans, the corn, soybean and wheat farms would just be a little less orderly. And it certainly didn't need the flood of Mexicans and Central Americans to be pleasant and prosperous.


    This reality is obvious from the "revealed preference" of minorities. Do they actually flee from white gentile oppression? Run to Africa, to Israel, to Mexico, to Puerto Rico, to China, to India, while whites lock them in camps to keep them here laboring away? Uh ...

    Until yesterday, of all the major newspapers, they were notable for allowing comments to flourish, and their relatively light moderation, and toleration of openly mocking or ad hominem responses to their articles.

    Now, it seems (but I cannot be sure), they're completely shutting off comments on any articles to do with race, or that talk about "the way America is today."

    PS: I see that they've just edited the "Comments are not available for this story" message and added a footnote:


    At The Washington Post, we value upholding civil dialogue around the news of the day. We are currently experiencing a high volume of comments and have temporarily reduced the number of stories with comments available in order to maintain our standard of discourse.

    That's the core of it. Everything else in contemporary American politics is just implementation detail.

    The really foul thing is that even being let and free to make a buck or two--or three or millions--like everyone else was insufficient. You had to be put in your place. America had to be de-majoritized, balkanized.

  185. I didn’t see big numbers of cogent conservative commenters speaking truth to power, or whatever, in the Washington Post comments. The Post did have huge comments sections, with hundreds or even thousands of comments per article. Other than for “hate speech,” they didn’t seem to be moderated; and my guess is that even the Post got tired of them. They had many, many trolls, people who posted the same thing over and over. Something else that occurs to me is that maybe even the Post got tired of so many vicious anti-Trump and especially anti-Pence comments. Maybe they don’t plan to permit the same for Biden and Harris, so they felt they had to do something now. I only read a fraction of the Post online, but the problems with the comment sections were noticeable. Many of their articles still do allow comments, though.

    Angelic Blacks are replacing "Native" Americans as mythical creatures to be worshipped.

    We were always told to worship the poor Indian, who sobbed whenever he had to harm a hair on some poor buffalo. The poor Indian only took what he had to, and only after a long spiritual commune with the animal.

    This, of course, was bullshit. But now, Comanches and Cherokees have fallen out of favor, apparently because they aren't culturally leftist.

    Blacks are the New Magic Creatures. But there is a difference: no one proposes we actually study the ways of ancient Africans and copy their lifestyle. There's an odd silence about who they were as a people in the past (not really odd, of course).

    But unlike Indians, Blacks are vengeful gods who are ready to rule (after taking revenge)! The old Indian focus seemed to fit the White need to feel guilty. The new Black focus is more about the enduring desire of White people to take a whipping and publicly be humiliated.

For awhile, I had this beta version that I had to manually install every time I started the browser, but I never used it very much. It’s a cool idea though.

    The separation of people could be voluntary with separate, autonomous (or semi-autonomous) regions, whether they be states or nations.

    Indeed, there is a great opportunity right now for this. The extreme propaganda pressure is affecting not only whites in a negative way, but blacks too.

    I read an article about some American black man who moved to Africa who said he felt better living in a new country without the racial history.

    Imagine, if someone could artfully propose “separation reparations”. E.g., 10k + 1 year’s salary to any black person who moves to Africa. It would be voluntary, but many might want to take it, even at a loss of income.

    It would be so cheap too, as 10k over 40 million people is just 400 billion. Biden has proposed a 1.9 trillion stimulus bill. How about we raise that up to 2.3 trillion?

    But just talking about it is a good thing, because this would strike fear in the anti-white propagandists, as their power source could leave. Perhaps, this would discourage the continuation of their rhetoric, at least to some degree. And the less anti-white rhetoric, the better.

    The thing that continues to amaze me with the NY Times and the W Post is that they never seem to ask themselves how it would be to apply basic rules of fairness to their opinion pages. Nor do they seem to consider what the effect of their unfairness might be. Roughly every other day they run a piece complaining about white people; usually it is black people complaining about racism and occasionally it is Jews complaining about antisemitism. Never, never, never are white people invited to complain about either group. As a white man, I have long ago concluded that, consciously or not, these people at a minimum are utterly indifferent to my fate. If they aren't consciously hostile. But I know that many of them believe in free inquiry, the value of debate etc., and I really can't understand how they can continue to act as they do given their honest belief in these things. For years these papers have accused Trump of divisiveness while doing everything they can to abuse white people and inform us that our sins are legion and our time is over, and so forth. Trump, for all his faults, at least had the gumption to tell them to go to hell, and I can't think of a better response.

    Until you realise that they are at war with themselves, understanding will fail you.

    Your second mistake isn’t realising that they are indifferent to your fate, but failing to realise that they are also indifferent to the fate of minorities.

    It is all about them.

    Having said that, among them will be some who enjoy humiliating others, some who enjoy saving others and all of the full range of human impetuses.

    Ultimately, you need only ask yourself what characteristics do they mean by whiteness and then you can imagine a person who has decided that those characteristics are without any personal benefit or decency at all. They will be way off-kilter, just like their perception of reality and their attempts to be logical.

Everyone knows that the real action is in the comments section. Many people just skim articles and then jump right into the comments.

Several were far more literate and educated than the regular columnists, and took great glee in taking said columnists to the literary woodshed for their poor writing and misinformed opinion. I even paid money to not see the advertisements. Likewise, it was a pleasure to learn from these posters. When an article wasn't worth reading, everyone would just skip to the comments section and provide their own wit and humor. I miss it terribly.

    I think you may have missed some things in Open Source during that time period. Remember Donglegate and Adria Richards? That wasn't just a one-time event.

    Did you know that Linus is not in charge of Linux anymore, and do you know why that is? "Code of Conduct" has become a root password into control of projects by little commissar-wannabes. For example, "master / slave" functions became an issue in open source, because of teh triggering. Teh Triggering!. Now there are codemonkeys parsing through open source base code to remove those labels and replace them with something else, like "primary / secondary" or whatever. Total waste of time and energy, but the Woke don't see things that way.

    Bear in mind that Brandon Eich was defenstrated some years ago from Mozilla over his contribution to California Prop. 8 during the 2008 election cycle, because the special snowflakes in Mozilla were so totally, totally offended by that they couldn't even. Sure, we got Brave out of it - based on the Chrome core, at least for now. Dunno if that will work going forward as Google gets a union formed in order to force Wokeism harder & faster.

    There's really only three underlying engines for web browsers. Of course, if the Open Source world keeps banishing competent coders for failing to conform to whatever the cause of the week is, it may become possible for a group to build another option - not webkit, not Chrome - from the base up.

    I do not agree that I should have to change or compromise away ANY of things that I think have made the American Dream something they want. If they conceptualize it as “whiteness,” that’s on them. But all the things to go with the sequence of historical events, achievements, and moral leaps forward are not something I should have to compromise on just because the people responsible were mostly white.

    I offer color-blind conservativism — it means you have to think like me, love the things I love, and want the things I want. Let us be allies and friends.

    I think you may have missed some things in Open Source during that time period. Remember Donglegate and Adria Richards? That wasn’t just a one-time event.

    Did you know that Linus is not in charge of Linux anymore, and do you know why that is? “Code of Conduct” has become a root password into control of projects by little commissar-wannabes. For example, “master / slave” functions became an issue in open source, because of teh triggering. Teh Triggering!. Now there are codemonkeys parsing through open source base code to remove those labels and replace them with something else, like “primary / secondary” or whatever. Total waste of time and energy, but the Woke don’t see things that way.

    Bear in mind that Brandon Eich was defenstrated some years ago from Mozilla over his contribution to California Prop. 8 during the 2008 election cycle, because the special snowflakes in Mozilla were so totally, totally offended by that they couldn’t even. Sure, we got Brave out of it – based on the Chrome core, at least for now. Dunno if that will work going forward as Google gets a union formed in order to force Wokeism harder & faster.

    There’s really only three underlying engines for web browsers. Of course, if the Open Source world keeps banishing competent coders for failing to conform to whatever the cause of the week is, it may become possible for a group to build another option – not webkit, not Chrome – from the base up. Then there will be another object for the Wokies to shriek about and try to ban.

    To oversimplify, the engine is the code that takes the HTML/CSS (the languages web developers use to specify how they want a webpage to look) and turns it into the actual webpage you see and interact with. If you're old enough you may recall that a webpage often looked noticeably different in Firefox or Internet Explorer because their engines made different decisions about the HTML. More critically the engine also controls how links work. There's considerable scope for mischief with hyperlinks because, like a fishing line, you don't know what's on the other end until you've pulled it in.

    The three engines referred to are probably Blink (Chrome and Edge), Gecko (Firefox) and WebKit (Safari).

    I hadn't heard of the dissenter plug-in and now reading about it I'm surprised that it was banned from the extension listings.

    It's a level of censorship I want aware of there before. This is the equivalent of Microsoft not allowing you to use MS Word because it doesn't like you're writing.

    Well, no. There are still a lot of older tech people who hold to the ideal of freedom of information but, judging by the forums I visit and events in tech in the last few years, there is a helluva lot of woke in tech now. It’s not just the managers, it’s infested the coders as well. So a browser that refuses to connect to ungood sites is definitely on the cards.

    Although I don't like the terminology of "multiracial whiteness," I do somewhat agree with the idea being put forth by it. That is, I truly embrace people of different appearance, background, religion, whatever being included in the American Dream and having the same rights and opportunities that my children do.

    I do not agree that I should have to change or compromise away ANY of things that I think have made the American Dream something they want. If they conceptualize it as "whiteness," that's on them. But all the things to go with the sequence of historical events, achievements, and moral leaps forward are not something I should have to compromise on just because the people responsible were mostly white.

    I offer color-blind conservativism -- it means you have to think like me, love the things I love, and want the things I want. Let us be allies and friends. But if you ask that I get rid of things that tend to reward what I think should be rewarded -- well then, we must fight. And you cannot take the high ground by claiming the fight is over race. It is over what life should look like when well-lived.

    Very well said. But it shouldn’t concern you so much if it’s “over race.” It is far from impossible that country could stop leaning pro-black and start leaning pro-white. After all, who do you suppose most people find more likeable, blacks or whites?

    Baltic Birch plywood has the highest strength to weight ratio of any wood product, and is far more beautiful than ordinary wood or plastic, making it the go-to for high-fidelity stereo sound speaker technology:

    One thing that comment sections have shown is that many, many people can write just as well as, or even better than, most professional journalists working today. Everyone knows that the real action is in the comments section. Many people just skim articles and then jump right into the comments.

    Thanks to FB and Twitter, everyone thinks their voice must be heard. No one cares what "the journalist" actually thinks. Media outlets that don't allow comments wither and die as a result.

    Replies: @Jimmy le Blanc

    I was a regular part of the takimag.com “commentariat” for years, until the editors pulled the comment section entirely several years ago. When I first joined, I was astonished at the level of education and eloquence of my fellow posters. I felt like I had died and gone to Heaven! Several were far more literate and educated than the regular columnists, and took great glee in taking said columnists to the literary woodshed for their poor writing and misinformed opinion. I even paid money to not see the advertisements. Likewise, it was a pleasure to learn from these posters. When an article wasn’t worth reading, everyone would just skip to the comments section and provide their own wit and humor. I miss it terribly.

    Since the “commentariat” died, I rarely visit.

    As others have pointed out, what's fascinating about 'whiteness' is it implies a collective set of responsibilities and liabilities and debts. But 'whiteness' cannot account for any sets of collective self-interest, pride or consciousness.

    Outgroups from the core population can only ever have collective self-interests but never collective responsibilities, guilt or self-reflection. In that sense we can say the collective identity of Western peoples have become that of a depressed person suffering from low-esteem, inappropriate guilt and prone to being taken advantage of by less self-effacing personalities. All Western people, when confronted with 'immigrants' feel cultural cringe. (But strangely don't feel it when their replacements aren't around)

    But contrast the collective identities of unassimilated ethnic outgroups seems positively narcissistic and anti-social. White people have collective identities of somebody with a major depression and outgroups that of Cluster B personality disorders.

    Is it normal for a society to constantly harangue and denigrate it's core population? Only in instances of foreign elites conquering the native ones. 1066, the Machu conquest of China, many such cases.

    And, again, upper middle class newspaper staffers still don't get why Latinos in America might want to restrict immigration. It's a god damn mystery why those most negatively effected economically by immigration would want to stop it.

  221. Thank you for the correction , something I’m well aware of, despite the blooper in my post–yet another brain fart!

    I know about the dire consequences to Americans who publically or even privately dissent from the regnant PC -mandate, I would opine that it’s even worse in the public sector, eg military and other careers can be destroyed by the Political Kommisars, sorry, “Diversity Officers” appointed to all military units of battalion, squadron or large ship size, no?

    I made myself familiar with your constitution as it is much superior to anything in Europe, the First being the greatest gift ever given by a political class to any nation to protect it’s citizens from despots the next greatest being your 2nd, without which your first can be easily taken from you.

    Europe never really “got” why you need gun rights and freedom of speech, and Britain’s hard-won centuries old liberties were seized from them with nary a whimper by Blair and successive PMs.
    400 years ago John, Deerbourne (aka Free Born – John) was flogged through the streets of London, put in the stocks, and dispossessed of land, wealth and house for obdurately claiming a right to silence when the King had him dragged to The Star Chamber to answer charges for distributing pamphlets.
    Years later the right of an accused to silence became law.
    Given away to Blair by the cowardly, the lazy and the self-interested.
    Here in Scotland, we still have the right to silence, but very little free speech.

    As for the 2nd, here under the matriarchies of the past 40 years, we’re facing massive jail time for possessing almost anything that could be used as a weapon.

    The snip below, from an email I sent to an ex US Marine chum about 6 years ago shows how proscribed bearing arms has become.

    ” possession of a knife with a blade length of over 3 and 1/2 inches outside the confines of their home ( or workplace IF it was a tool of their trade. No defence, and no mitigations allowed.
    Thankfully, the justiciary have refused to cooperate with the SNP’s attacks on Common Law and have headed off some of these Stalinest loons worst excesses.
    I’ve been an outdoorsman since infancy( or for pedants out there I guess I was an outdoorsinfant, outdoorsboy, etc to coin some ridiculous words) and I carry a knife of some description almost all the time, usually a Swiss Army Huntsman, which I find invaluable whether I’m working on my car, gardening, our in the woods or hills- you name it, it’s useful.
    Because they are so useful, I have four of them, two Huntsmans and two with a 4″ lockblade( plus a great sawblade, can opener, etc.

    I gave one to my oldest son when he was 16 ten years ago– he gave it back to me when the SNP announced their planned legislation as he didn’t want arrested and given a police record that would damn him in many ways.

    A couple of years back I had been in the woods , miles from anyone for a couple of days, sleeping out in a bivi bag with a few other items of equipment, including a sheath knife for constructing a shelter that was , as they are designed to, on my belt.
    I had got so used to it I has forgotten I was wearing it, and after I’d walked to the road to drive home, I stopped off at a supermarket STILL unaware that I had it on.
    When I realised I still had it, I was out of there in a flash before I was in the jail.

    Most Britons today have zero understanding of why a population should have a right to bear arms, and most have very little understanding of the two most precious gifts any politicians in history have given to their people–the 1st and 2nd Amendments gifted to Americans by those Dead White Males, The Founding Fathers.

    ( The most recent SNP Nazism is a clampdown on airgun ownership– the maximum power is 12 ft/lbs, which gives a muzzle velocity of 660f/ps with a very short .22 pellet. I have to spend £86 per gun on licencing them and registering them with the police. When I was a kid, before we were a multi-kulti police state, kids could walk about with an air gun or a sheath knife and nobody cared as long as they were careful. Boy Scouts actually wore a sheath knife as part of their uniform, a knife that would get then canned and counselled about how violently patriarchal their crime was!”

    Guard your liberties, vhrm, they’re easily lost, and costly in blood, happiness, time and wealth to restore.
