From an anonymous iSteve commenter:

Watching a lot of these videos and reading accounts, it tends to come down to groups of protesters who are told to disburse after a declaration of unlawful assembly by the cops, they don’t, the cops tolerate it for a while while continuing to tell them to disburse, and then a half hour later come gas and rubber bullets. At the moment that happens, yes, the crowd is not doing anything different than they had been doing five minutes before: they had simply been continuing in a “mostly peaceful” violation of a police order.

This is basically a group white version of the individual black conduct of “I don’t feel like being arrested today” thing. If a cop tells you he is going to arrest you, that’s what is going to happen, and you can make it easy or make it hard (and maybe get killed if you force them to sit on you or shoot you). Likewise, if the cops tell you they are going to clear the streets, that’s what’s going to happen, and you can leave then, or you can wait around and maybe take a supersonic Nerf ball to your testicles later.

Someone should redo Chris Rock’s video for mass protests.

Another factor in mass assemblies is the menace factor of groups: Police have to take into account that they are outnumbered and if don’t show some potentially injurious force to deter the bulk of the crowd the police themselves can be put in danger.

    Uh… that’s what was going on outside the federal courthouse in Portland? There haven’t been a series of organized attacks on the federal courthouse in Portland? That’s what happened at the Columbus statue in downtown Chicago, when Antifa-led rioters attacked and injured dozens police in a reenactment of the cinema classic Zulu?

    Huh. Who knew?

  2. I actually have sympathy for this woman. I can’t imagine what it would be like to only get your information from MSNBC and mainstream Twitter. Her cognitive dissonance is pushing her to the edge of sanity.

  3. Ken52 says:

    I generally agree with the analysis but there is definitely a group of self-designated anarchists (actually more correctly called political nihilists) who seek to provoke a violent confrontation with the police in hopes of getting a police response that will radicalize the protestors. It’s a very infantile form of leftism. They ones I’ve met that advocate such tactics seem to come from rather affluent backgrounds and have almost a romantic notion that they’re stopping fascism before it has a chance to grow. What they’re actually doing is helping the authorities to justify a police state.

  5. Anon7 says:

    I’d also like to know what is happening in Portland. What’s the law about civil disturbances there, anyway?

    Oregon’s state law states:

    When any five or more persons, whether armed or not, are unlawfully or riotously assembled in any county, city, town or village, the sheriff of the county and the deputies of the sheriff, the mayor of the city, town or village, or chief executive officer or officers thereof, and the justice of the peace of the district where the assemblage takes place, or such of them as can forthwith be collected, shall go among the persons assembled, or as near to them as they can with safety, and command them in the name of the State of Oregon to disperse. If, so commanded, they do not immediately disperse, the officer must arrest them or cause them to be arrested; and they may be punished according to law.

    ORS 131.675: Dispersal of unlawful or riotous assemblages

    Take a look at selected parts of the City of Portland Police directive:

    9.2. When the crowd has been ordered to disperse and does not heed repeated warnings, and no reasonable alternative is apparent, riot control agents (RCAs) and/or special impact munitions may be deployed to prevent violence, injury or property damage and to avoid a greater application of force.

    11.1 The failure to comply with the lawful order to disperse can transform otherwise legal conduct into criminal conduct if the protest has been determined to be a civil disturbance by the IC [Incident Commander] or if the crowd has left from a certain location. Members may be justified in detaining individuals engaged in civil disturbance after providing a lawful order to disperse followed by a reasonable opportunity to comply with that order.

    0635.10 Crowd Management/Crowd Control

    Seems like they have the laws and directives they need. Whether or not they apply them, though, is apparently another matter.

    Bullshit. DHS/FPS and DOJ/USMS guys took no offensive action against the rioters and yet the federal courthouse building was attacked and vandalized. Since FPS and USMS stopped the breach/destruction of the building there have been weeks on relentless attacks on the federal officers and deputy marshals protecting the federal courthouse. Other DHS agents and officers (FPS/ICE/CPB) have been sent in just to protect and defend the federal property. That’s it.

    Thanks for raising the misinformation/insanity factor, because it was only this morning that I realized the magnitude of it. Rush quoted a poll: The “average American” believes that 9% of the U.S. population has died from Covid. That would be 30 million Americans, Rush estimated. Rush himself was astonished by the magnitude of the misconception. Rush repeated the above after the break; he felt it was very important, and so do I. If this, what else?

    Our sovereign lord the King chargeth and commandeth all persons, being assembled, immediately to disperse themselves, and peaceably to depart to their habitations, or to their lawful business, upon the pains contained in the act made in the first year of King George, for preventing tumults and riotous assemblies. God save the King.

  21. Bill B. says:

    One thing i’ve noticed is that a lot of modern policing in the West involves tension reduction and calming and only increases physical action in response to the rioters/protestors behavior.

    Perhaps the police, when faced with clear provocations, should start to act menacing. Put fear into the rioters.

    What did Machiavelli advise his Prince? That it was far better to kill someone than make them poor. And yet, here are the rioters making people poor — property owners, people with cars, etc. None of these people are going to be happy being made poor. Particularly in this nation, with Superstars get everything, everyone else gets bugs to eat.

    Now, the great mass of fat White women figuring they’ll get themselves their own Sir Mix A Lot will overwhelm them electorally. But still, you have a non trivial amount of people with a legitimate grievance over being made poor. Ask the Israelis how that one worked out. And that’s a nation of high IQ strivers and military achievers. Even frequent Jeffrey Epstein guest Ehud Barak had enough stones to dress up as the ugliest Arab women in history to help kill the “Red Prince” PLO baron behind the Munich Massacre. And good for that. I admire frankly Israelis and their daring, high IQ military bravery. The same way I admire Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, James Butler Hickok, and others. People admire bravery and daring and intelligence in violent action.

    And there lies the lesson. Israeli politics is filled with Sarah Silverman sisters, “rabbis” moaning over Africans and such. But daring and dare I say it, masculine presence and bravery carry the day over post menopausal bitching. There is a lesson there.

    It is vital for the West to have wars against non-Whites. Where we utterly defeat them and kill lots of their men. Otherwise our women are a dagger to our throats.

    Zimbabwe’s government on Wednesday signed a deal with former white farmers to pay them billions of dollars in compensation roughly two decades after they lost their land in often violent invasions.

    But because the government does not readily have the money, the farmers will be part of a team tasked with raising the cash.

  31. Oregon is strange.

    It was founded, basically, for the express purpose of getting as far away as possible from blacks. The early settlers were pro-union and anti-slavery, but not because they romanticized blacks, (in fact they completely forbade them from taking part in civic life in the territory) rather they recognized that slavery/blacks were social and economic poison to whites. A position many here on Unz would agree with.

    150 years later, what happened!? Well, because it had few blacks to begin with, and didn’t draw many blacks to factories during the great migration (never had huge smokestack industries) there are relatively few blacks there today, and the few that do tended to be high functioning blacks that moved for jobs or other reasons. So whites there have an extremely distorted, romanticized view of what blacks are actually like, and thus are easily whipped up by propaganda in the MSM. Basically they don’t have a bullshit detector. No immune system.

    Also, having few blacks (for a big city) Portland could have nice things like functional mass transit and for many years could get away with relatively lenient drug laws, vagrancy laws, etc.. Unfortunately this made them a magnet for every reprobate in the continental United States and now it’s reached a critical mass.

    One of the ironies of all this is that the protesters are complaining that the feds are ‘outsiders’ and this should be handled locally–when many of the protesters themselves have flown in from out of state or moved there in the last 10 years to live in a tent and get high all the time.

    Frankly I’ve always found Oregonians to be very kind, credulous people, who cling to their own notions of moral superiority because they don’t have a whole lot else going for them.

    But, I lived in Washington for years so take all this with a grain of salt.

    So what is the end game for the rioters? At what point do they proclaim victory and go home?

    The answer is never. Biden or Trump wins, they will still be rioting. And mayors will still enable them as they fear the rioters more than their own voters. Anti Fa showing up at the Mayors houses in Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Chicago got the message across.

    The cops are going to be defunded. Not just in urban areas but all across the country. Meanwhile Anti Fa and the NFAC black militia are the new law. They ARE the new cops. With police powers, the ability to legally block highways, pull motorists out of cars, and beat them for being White. Shoot them if they wish. Shooting back is like shooting cops, but worse. The full fury of the state will be against such unlucky people.

    Sure, White women will love this like a rap video with a Kardashian. But for everyone else, its a nightmare. Latinos are not so keen on black militias pulling them out of the truck they worked so hard for to light it on fire. And it doesn’t get better if its a trust fund LARPer playing Weimar Republic Commie.

    Garcetti basically disbanded the LAPD. Panicking over all the people in his front yard a few months ago. Well, he can’t call tbe bullet back. Disbanded it is, and the vacuum will be filled in LA not by anti-Fa but by CARTELS. Who will set up “justice” systems and dispense what they call justice in brutal fashion.

    There is nothing stupider than anti-Fa. Seriously they called for people to bring extension cords as they went “geothermal dude” and planned to plug in their laptops to a hole in the ground because that is where electricity comes from.

    A certain percentage of American pay zero attention to current events. Where do you think the term ‘low information voter’ comes from?

    People on this board who are obsessed with politics and society are a small minority of the population. Why do you think so few people show up to vote in primary elections? The only people who do are political junkies. At heart, most people don’t want to think about politics at all. Political concepts are too hard for them to grasp, much like higher level math is too hard for them to grasp.

    Political thinking is something that ought to be classified as a type of mental intelligence ala Howard Gardner. Most people cannot think politically. It’s extremely hard for them to grasp the concepts and mentally project how certain ideas will have macro-scale effects on the country. People who are interested in politics and political ideas are like musicians with perfect pitch. They have an innate gift for political thinking, and they don’t recognize it’s a rarity. They think everybody can do it, and everybody can’t.

    This seems generally right to me and more to the point than the OP’s analysis. This stuff is still going because the politicians, for whatever reasons, would rather it keep going rather than letting the police restore order.

    TBH, the police declarations of unlawful assembly or whatever are BS. 90% of the activity during the protests has been illegal anyway (even of only for traffic and Covid-19 violations, let alone the vandalism, assaults, and looting) and the cops have mostly say on their hands. And even if they arrest people, they’ll be released without even being charged.

    Therefore the police have no credibility and their selective and entirely unprincipled enforcement of the law (and lack thereof) has stripped then of any moral authority whenever they say anything anyway.

    The cops might as well be saying “go away or i’ll taunt you a second time”.

    One thing that keeps sticking out is the North/South divide in riots. The North riots, but the Southern states mostly don’t. This is not a new pattern. In the 60s, the Northern states rioted while the South was pretty quiet. When there were disturbances in the South, it was usually because Northern agitators came South to try to kick up a fuss. The North deliberately exported rioters and provocateurs.

    If you look at the statistics, there’s no correlation between divorce rates and riots, if we assume crazy rioters come from divorced families. The South has plenty of divorces. There’s more going on here than meets the eye.

    I strongly suspect that having a stronger sense of traditional community tamps down riot behavior. It’s the rootless who feel no emotional ties to their city that are causing the most trouble. As has been noted, Seattle and Portland have imported plenty of new citizens because of their liberal drug laws. But it’s also worth noting that if you’re a drug user, you’re likely to be on the outs with your family. This means the family ties are not operational, and won’t work to suppress violent behavior in an offspring.

    If your parents can’t make you stop using drugs, then they’re not going to be able to stop you from rioting, either. It looks a lot like liberal drug laws are unintentionally attracting the sort of person who is likely to riot because they care little about community morals and standards.

  92. Boycott Amazon for this maltreatment till this shit ends. Isn’t this “non-capitalization” open discrimination Against a targeted ethnic group ILLEGAL? Who’s Up for a class action lawsuit against Associated Press, Washington Post etc and anyone else openly discriminating. I guess when they reach we will have to TEACH that the WOKER you get the BROKER you get.

  93. Someone on Twitter called Wokal Distance posted this thread. It explains the reasoning behind antifa tactics.

    1/ Want to know how activists in places like Portland take over roads, smash windows, light buildings on fire, and still have the press call them non-violent? Well, as it turns out these are well trained activists using intelligent, highly developed tactics.

    2/ For starters, none of this is spontaneous.
    Note that many protestors have shields. These shields take 3 hours each to make and are created by a group of 25 volunteers working all day.

    You don’t do that spontaneously. It takes planning.

    3/ It isn’t just the shields that are planned, everything is, from what protestors wear, to the tactics chosen in each situation.

    The protestors also have a highly developed understanding of the information and media ecosystem and the tactics that work in that environment.

    4/ The first strategy is to put their target in a “decision dilemma.” This is where they select a method of protest that leaves the person with no good options. No matter how the target reacts they look bad.

    5/ That strategy is paired with: “the real action is your targets reaction.” you want to use someone’s reactions to your protest against them. IE: Blocking a road. If the police arrest you, play the martyr. If they don’t, you now control the road.

    6/ Those two strategies are used hand in hand to create actions which activists can turn to their advantage. When they do this correctly, they can create imagery that paints them as the underdogs even when they are the aggressors.

    It’s social and political jiu-jitsu.

    7/ Much of this is performative, but not in “look good to your peers” kind of way. The principle is “play to the audience that isn’t there.” Activists try to create actions that LOOK a certain way to the audience on YouTube or watching the news.

    8/ Please pay careful attention to this: Activists want to LOOK like they are trying to change the minds of people they protest against, but that’s just for show. They see their targets unrepentant evil doers that are just props in the drama they are staging.

    This is awful.

    9/ This next strategy is self-explanatory: “do the media’s work for them.” This is where activists make sure press releases and film footage that make them look good get into the hands of sympathetic journalists. This explains a lot of what gets on TV

    10/ There’s been a lot of sympathetic coverage in media. Much of it revolves around the so called “Wall of Moms.” The media story is that these moms are acting to protect the protestors from vicious police. However, this is just another strategy from the same activist playbook…

    11/ And that strategy is to “lead with sympathetic characters.” It’s EXACTLY what it sounds like. They put sympathetic people out front to garner sympathy and create the APPEARANCE of underdogs fighting an uphill battle against powerful interests.

    12/ The protestors have a highly developed theory of protest optics. They understand videos can be sliced and diced to tell a certain story, so the story that “resonates” with people most, wins. So they are intentional in trying to create moments on video that can go viral…

    13/ That isn’t to say they aren’t also intentional in doing damage. They are. The book Black Bloc, White Riot: Anti-Globalization and the Genealogy of Dissent by author AK Thompson is the starting place for their theory of what counts as violence, and when violence is justified.

    14/ Here is Alex Hundert writing is rabble defending “a diversity of tactics” which is a euphemism for allowing violence at protests. Hundert explicitly states a commitment to non-violence is “dogmatic” and “stifles debate” about which tactics to use.

    15/ So the violence is intentional. Where the “Wall of Moms” is meant to win hearts, the black bloc is there to intimidate. If police react to the violence with arrests, the Wall of Moms is there so protestors can claim the police “attacked Moms. See how the game works?

    16/ What I want you to get from this is that none of what you see is happening spontaneously.

    These are high level tactics that are given to people supported by a well-organized protest infrastructure (where do you think all the people making the shields come from?)

    17/ These radical protestors have organized an infrastructure to, in their words, disrupt, dismantle, and deconstruct your society.

    I don’t want to scare any of you, I just want you to know what’s happening because you can’t push back against what you don’t understand.

    Excellent comment.

    In NYC there has been a slow but inexorable slide into ignoring nearly all illegal activity during protests. Sometime around 10 years ago (during Bloomberg’s terms as mayor and before de Blasio), it started with simply blocking traffic and graduated into petty vandalism (graffiti, litter, etc). The NYPD was forced to walk alongside the protesters and endure their taunts (“F*ck The Police!). Before long, it wasn’t just “legitimate” protests, there was outright lawlessness (i.e. dozens of unregistered ATVs and dirt bikes taking over streets and sidewalks). Nothing was done. The feeling was in the air that the NYPD was losing its ability to control the situation. And they were.

    Recently, the simple act of arresting a suspect for which there was an arrest warrant outstanding was condemned as “fascist”. Of course, bail laws having been “reformed”, the arrestee was out on the streets within hours.

    “Wall of Moms” found not to be Black! enough, accused of Anti-Blackness, crumbling.

    WALLS DON’T WORK!

    Portland’s Wall of Mom founder branded ‘anti-black’ after offering to help more than just BLM protesters

    Last Friday, leadership positions in Wall of Moms were offered to several local black activists, including Teressa Raiford, executive director of the black-led Don’t Shoot Portland organization. The two groups were allies and together filed a lawsuit accusing the federal government of using excessive force against the protesters in the city.

    On Wednesday, Don’t Shoot Portland announced it was no longer supporting Wall of Moms, accusing them of “leaving vulnerable Black women downtown after marching, failing to support those on the ground that put trust in them,” and embracing “anti-blackness.”

    The core of the problem seems to be a move by Bev Barnum, the Mexican-American founder of Wall of Moms, to register it as a non-profit. Her vision is for the group to go national and use its violence-deterring approach on behalf of other protesters facing crackdowns by authorities.

    The group’s Twitter account was apparently hijacked by internal “resistance,” who accused Barnum of going “rogue” and steering the group in the wrong direction after capitalizing on support from Don’t Shoot Portland and Raiford.

    I won’t even attempt to understand what’s going on.

    “THIS IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF SOMETHING BUILT ON THE PREMISE OF HELPING BLACK PEOPLE, legitimized by Black people, TAKEN FROM BLACK PEOPLE,” the account declared.

    I generally agree with the analysis but there is definitely a group of self-designated anarchists (actually more correctly called political nihilists) who seek to provoke a violent confrontation with the police in hopes of getting a police response that will radicalize the protestors. It’s a very infantile form of leftism. They ones I’ve met that advocate such tactics seem to come from rather affluent backgrounds and have almost a romantic notion that they’re stopping fascism before it has a chance to grow. What they’re actually doing is helping the authorities to justify a police state.

    There are scions of the Ruling Class who understand that their family and class status will excuse a good deal of criminal conduct committed now and that they will not be prohibited from attaining a prosperous future and comfortable life. In the future that they foresee, these crimes will all be laundered as “activism” and will be a credential itself. Of course, that was the arc of Bill Ayers’ life which serves as a model for this sort of course.

    One I find interesting is the family of Senator and 2016 Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine (D-VA). His eldest of two sons, Nat Kaine, is a United States Marine, while the younger, Linwood “Woody” Kaine is an Antifa-associated type who was charged with felony rioting while “counterprotesting” at a Trump rally. Perhaps both Kaine sons are pursuing different paths to a high place among the Ruling Class? It would be interesting fodder for a roman a clef or a fictionalized satire of the Ruling Class.

    I’ve noticed that the Antifa (and especially the LBGTQ types) are extremely WASPish looking. Most women don’t bear such masculine chins otherwise. It’s thus fitting Oregon has a openly bisexual Governor who possesses a Patrician WASPy character. The previous Governer got in trouble with a green energy/financial scandal.

    Oregonians to be very kind, credulous people, who cling to their own notions of moral superiority

    My employer had a big office in Portland, and I got to know a bunch of those folks very well.

    They had the “moral superiority” thing going big time. The only other employees we had that were even close were from Seattle.

    They were very soft and spoiled. It was obvious that none of them had worked with their hands, even in their teenage years.

    They were trustworthy, though–never had any work problems with any of them.

    And–they were very competent and high IQ.

    The libertarian side of me is cringing as I say this, but I think the only cure for these folks would be mandatory military service. They need discipline and hard work–and then their positive qualities could really shine.

    Your problem, and why you are likely to end up like Reginald Denny, is that you don’t understand the implications of demographic transformation. This not even 1990s America. It’s part Mexico and part Liberia. And part Vichy France with White men defeated and about to be sent to labor camps like a zUighur.

    I think it’s more a manifestation of the same process that leads WASPs to cheat less on their taxes. They genuinely think in a normal paradigm that the media and ALL of society is validating, that Trump is evil incarnate.

    Absent outgroups with strong ethnocentrism that exploit it, it’s pretty nice to live around such people and Swedes. Those areas that suffered less immigration (Including great wave European) tend to be secure and empathetic and progressive in their politics with much lower inequality.

    The antifa are the extreme manifestation from this. They are broadly people with cluster B personality disorders. Normal progressives don’t have the ability to talk back to these people anymore and others have been polarised by the media to be sympathetic enough to the idea that they are on ‘their side’ that they are disinclined to reign them in when Trump protests their actions.

    Much digital ink has been spilled by people of great wave backgrounds against WASPs but really it’s a manifestation of their greater empathy and support for more egalitarian politics. This has been hijacked by ethnic outgroups who exploit it to promote their own interests in a way that leads to endless conflict.

    100 years ago the anarchists bombing court buildings were Italians and indeed, these actions help lead to the immigration restriction in the 20s.

    “Potentially injurious force” = weasel word.

The fact of the matter is that law enforcement is typically outnumbered at a peaceful rally. It does not given them license to bash skulls based on what COULD happen; rather, they are taught to constantly assess the situation, give warnings, and then use force only when specifically provoked by a direct act of physical defiance, which was clearly not the case in these incidents.

    At 8:01 p.m. Sunday, Denver police did not charge the Capitol grounds where more than a thousand protesters had gathered despite an 8 p.m. curfew. That was intentional and different than what happened Saturday, Pazen said, because the crowd had not acted violently toward police. Officers allowed the protesters to march until about 8:30 p.m., when Pazen said some in the crowd threw fireworks and rocks at police. “Our actions are in direct response to whatever is thrown at us first,” Pazen said.

    Denver Police Department policy states that officers can use chemical munitions to “quell rioting/disperse unlawful crowds,” though policing experts have said it’s dangerous to fire projectiles like pepper balls into large crowds. Policy also requires officers to give verbal commands before, during and after using a less-than-lethal weapon, when possible. Multiple times over the past four nights, police have unleashed gas or projectiles without warning or orders to the crowd, videos and eyewitness accounts by Denver Post reporters show.

    Now, I thought that conservatives/Republicans preferred matters to be dealt with locally. Yet, there is an insistence by AG Barr to get involved. NOTICE a pattern–federal law enforcement is especially focusing on Democratic cities in battleground/purple states: FL (Jacksonville), MI (Detroit), PA (Philadelphia) MO (KC), OH (Cleveland), and WI (Milwaukee). Of course, as one (in)famous urban Negro mayoress stated, “If those agents are here to actually work in partnership on support of gun violence and violent cases, plugging into existing infrastructure federal agents, not trying to play police in our streets, then that’s something different and that may add value”.

    But why didn’t Trump make this a priority last year or four years ago if he was deathly concerned about “law and order” and reducing crime rates? Furthermore, why did federal agents withdraw from Seattle and Portland, two hotbeds of leftism?

    “Another factor in mass assemblies is the menace factor of groups…”

    Deeper history: the Lewis & Clark expedition led to John Jacob Astor sending shiploads of men and equipment to claim part of the Columbia river estuary by setting up a fur trading post. Astoria, Oregon was named for him.

    Historical migration patterns in the US have been along an East – West axis. IMO this is a latitude / climate issue, since until the 1920’s a clear majority were farmers. It’s not all that different to move from New England to New York to the Great Lake states in terms of planting and harvesting. A lot of Oregon settlers came from the Midwest and upper midwest, although a fair number came by ship from Norway, again remaining at a similar latitude.

    That endless, monotone whining schoolteacher voice is really typical of certain subgroups. If you listened to the Iowa caucuses earlier in the year you definitely heard something similar. It’s like school counselor endlessly saying the same thing in a passive aggressive way to try to get a 12 year old boy to overract so he can be prescribed Ritalin or something similar.

    Leftards love to talk this way not just in public but to each other. Imagine being in some kind of public meeting where someone like this gets the podium with no time limit. It’s one method to outlast everyone else and thus get your passive-aggressive manipulation done. Now imagine if it’s the local co-op water utility, and all you want is a reliable water source, but…meetings.

    This is kind of what my city did. A protest was held that was disproportionately white and included many teens from nearby white suburbs. A separate protest was held by some blacks, but it didn’t involve an aggressive march like the white one. A disproportionate amount of black policemen were sent out to handle the first protest, and nothing got out of control despite the protestors’ attempt to block a road. The police department made sure the news was there to publicly video the perp walk of the few who committed vandalism during/after the protest. 3 white guys, 1 black woman.

    Some blacks unconnected to both protests attempted to loot some stores in a totally different area of town later the same night as but it was suppressed very quickly.

    Honestly the looting does not disturb me as much as the insane, pseudo-revivalist anarchist/liberal rioting. America has always known how to deal with looting/general disorder. But the anarchists are a genuine threat and for whatever reason (are they inadvertently proving some degree of the “white privilege” they hate so much?) their efforts generate more sympathy.

  148. “Another factor in mass assemblies is the menace factor of groups: Police have to take into account that they are outnumbered…”

    In essence they are daring the cops to make a move. They know that they have the numbers and that the cops don’t. They are not armed so even though the cops are armed, the latter can’t open fire unless fired upon and that hasn’t happened…at least not yet. God forbid if it does.

    Can’t say I blame all those cops who are throwing in the towel. As an institution, law enforcement is in a no-win situation. Alinsky would’ve have been proud to see what has unfolded.

    Now that white skin = original sin, the entire “consent of the governed” is losing any real meaning.

    They did the same thing here in St. Louis, but ended up in a conflict with the boomerwaffen lawyer couple instead.

    They did the same thing in St. Louis and got a couple of arrogant lawyers entangled in the legal system. Those two Boomers were stupid, and now have indictments filed against them. The Mo.

    This. In the Chicago protest video I posted earlier on another thread, it was clear that a majority of the “protesters” eventually began throwing projectiles, provided by the ringleaders, at the police. An overwhelming majority did this and/or shielded the ringleaders from eye level observation. (The police occupied somewhat high ground, but not high enough to see over the blocking force; the video camera, whether on a pole (probably), or carried by a drone, or a manned helicopter, was high enough.

    This is a bit like how the Bolsheviks took power.

    The October “revolution” of the Bolsheviks was just a coup d’etat, not an actual revolt.

    Bolshevik means minority,

    Totally wrong. “Bolshoi” means “big” or “large” or “great”, that is why the largest corps de ballet in Russia is the Bolshoi ballet.

    That term was Lenin running Fake News. He claimed that his minority of radicals were the majority, so he could give speeches in which he said “The Majority knows….” (Bolshevikii znaete…) and people are herd animals so many went along with the Fake Majority.

    they were a fringe group able to push out the more reasonable and moderate Menshevik (majority)

    “Menshevik” means “minority”. It is a mystery to me why a plurality of the Social Democrat party of Russia circa 1917 allowed themselves to be called “minority” and even adopted it as their own name.

    This stuff is not just historical trivia, either. Because essentially it is the same playbook that we are seeing in the current year. It worked 100 years ago in Russia….60+ years ago in Cuba…

    group through extreme ideological dedication plus violence.

    At least that’s accurate.

    Enthusiastic antifah could push both milquetoast parties out of power.

    That’s the clear intention. Soros funds them directly and indirectly for reasons. The current Mayor of Portland is obviously in submission to the Rose City Antifa, the current Mayor of Seattle has given in as well.

    “You don’t get to “occupy” a space – even a public one – indefinitely and exclude others from its safe and free use.”

    “You also don’t get to run interference for an internal phalanx of violent criminals…”

    Assuming that all or most of the group fit that description.

    “and claim that your passive resistance is “peaceful.””

    It’s the actions of the few, not the majority. The police have generally worked with the protestors, but there will always remain a rabble rousing element. It does not mean one impugns the entire group, just those who employ violence.

    You are employing the same exaggerated argument that the British used against the colonists–the crowd protests against the Stamp Act were the designs of treacherous people who constantly and repeatedly used physical violence. Each and every one of them must be punished. Of course, the colonists believed they were merely exercising their liberty to congregate and protest.

    “Additionally, if these people consider themselves Revolutionaries willing to kill and die for their cause they really need to “get it on” in the infamous words of Mills Lane.”

    The DHS said in a statement Wednesday that federal law enforcement officers are working “diligently and honorably to enforce federal law by defending federal property and the lives of their fellow officers” as “violent anarchists continue to riot on the streets of Portland”. The DHS and Portland police did not respond to a request for comment.

    David said the officers’ response Saturday night to a largely peaceful crowd was completely disproportionate. But he said, it was also clear that they were not trained for this type of situation.

    “They have no tactical cohesion to what they’re doing,” he said. “Duston and I are vets. We can tell what’s going on with these guys. There was no sort of command. They were running around and they were scared.”

    As he watches the protests continue to balloon, Obermeyer believes the federal officers are actually “creating the situation that they are saying they have to be there for”.

    Portland and Seattle are relatively White and affluent, hence the low crime rate, particularly violent crime. What you have is a relatively small amount of violent agitators (several hundred or even a thousand) and – the real issue – a majority that seems to go along with it. Several hundred violent young people in a city the size of Seattle is not cause for worry. My educated, White Seattle neighbors that seem to think this is all OK, soak up the propaganda, and post BLM signs in their front yards – that is a worry. That signals the end of it all.

    Imagine how violent the 1970s would be with today’s demographics (though the Black population has been pretty steady since then). Or even better, how peaceful the 2000s would be with 1970 demographics (though we do have more less violent NE Asians).

    Think of it this way: Southeast Asians raised in America today are taller than the Dutch were 200 years ago. That doesn’t mean the Dutch aren’t genetically predisposed to be taller than Southeast Asians. A LOT taller.

    The mostly peaceful protests spin on Portland seems analogous to Walter Durranty’s “malnutrition” that was occurring in Ukraine in ’33.

    Spot on.

    Richard Spencer’s “white nationalists” in Charlottesville were peaceful–though many came “ready to rumble” given the inevitable Antifa attacks. They had their permit and–left alone–would just have had their torchlight parade and rally.

    I’ll even grant that the “Women’s march” was basically peaceful.

    These riots–and anything associated with Antifa–are never peaceful.

    At the core of minoritarian leftism is “you–whitey!–are not allowed to leave”, mind your own business, have your own life.

    And this is ideology is at the core of the protests. Antifa is never content to wave their commie flags or BLM banners and then go away. You see “the system” is racist, and you *must* pay attention to their complaints … or else. That means blocking you from driving to work–detaining you in your car. Beating on your car if you aren’t supportive. Or detaining you on the street–and beating you up if you disapprove. Or graffitiing your building. Or smashing your windows. Or looting your store. Or attacking some public–racist!–building.

    Antifa is inherently violent, because they simply don’t accept that people can be allowed to disagree or ignore them. Because “racism!” Because “this really matters!”

    As i’ve said before, this isn’t akin to arguing about taxes or welfare or health provision or even a war. There is simply no compromise to be had with minoritarians, because they simply do not accept the right of white gentiles to live their lives as they wish. Whites are to be serfs–period.

    The teachers unions and teachers associations have been hard left since the 1940s. In Jewish areas like NYC since 1900. A lot of the 1910 Greenwich village bohemian women were NYC school teachers. Affirmative action raised leftist anti White racist blacks to high ranking school administration jobs and chairmen of numerous teacher associations and union committees.

    There was a 1940-70s Socialist Michael Harrington. He wrote a book about how to take over America. One of his methods was public employees unions. Behind the facade of higher wages to appeal to the average worker would be a cohort of trained communist agitators, Already in place in government jobs.

    That happened in Czarist Russia too. As soon as free compulsory state schools were built the radicals flocked to work in the system. The various revolutionary parties had their meetings at the teachers meetings as cover. Lenin’s father was superintendent of schools and produced 2 revolutionary sons.

    Free, rather than tuition universities was a big mistake in Czarist Russia. Anyone who was admitted could live on the generous stipend, plot revolution and subvert the youth of the middle and upper middle classes

    It’s insane to have a city of only 600,000 people with low inequality and a normal murder rate of ~22 a year. I suppose it’s the difference easy access to guns make. It’s not that guns aren’t available to criminals in Western Europe it’s just it’s like the Chris Rock joke about each bullet costing $5000, they’re mostly controlled by criminal gangs and their use is very restricted, lone criminals don’t really have easy access. Going around shooting people is a good way to get the police to make you the number one priority.

    I once met a very young pretty very cheery forensics officer from New York city, when asked if she had become enured to murder scenes she said for the most part yes, except the children, she could never get over dead children. Murdered children is something most of her peers in Western Europe will likely never see even once and she’d seen a few already.

And unfortunately this process is being hijacked by this lethal minoritarian virus.

    Truth is most white people would be better/saner if they were still on the farm–and of course, if we could turn off Hollyweird and “journalists” and “academics” and, of course, “social media”.

    White young women in particular would be much, much saner if they grew up getting up everyday to milk the cows, then gathering eggs and helping mom in the kitchen… and then, of age, their concern took to landing the most eligible bachelor (who was going to inherit a nice farm). But that’s not our world.

    We simply need to kill off–separate from–minoritarinism. (Let those whites who want to go with the Jews, blacks and other minorities into “Rainbow” nation(s) do so, and die off.)

    Nowadays the ER docs save folks, so technically they aren’t murder victims, just attempted murder victims. Now everyone has a cell phone and can call 911, so the person gets to the hospital. Absent the tech improvements, the murder rate would be much higher.

    I don’t get the recent leftist/media hysteria over people being “taken away” in “unmarked vehicles.”

    Police cars/vans clearly marked as such are fair game for peaceful protestors because the occupants are a) easily identifiable as law enforcement officials, and b) likely to feel that they are bound by the laws of civilisation in how they can react (assuming they react at all).

    Unmarked cars/vans mean that someone chucking a rock/bottle/bomb at them is running a risk because there is a possibility that the occupants are a) not law enforcement officials, and b) feel bound only by the law of the jungle in how they react.

    In short, unmarked vehicles work when it comes to getting the rabble off the streets, hence the hysteria from the people who want the rabble to continue to be on the streets.

    Some people see that there is no diversity and aren’t smart enough to put two and two together, and so they go on a moral crusade to add more diversity.

    Some people understand subliminally that either they want to be in a White city, or they want the stuff that can only exist in a White city, but they are terrified of being labeled a badwhite, so they turn the virtue signaling up to the intensity of 1000 Suns.

In the final challenge to the presidential election results in Florida in 2000, the dimocrat case was essentially based on the argument that in the portions of state law governing the Secretary of State’s role in the election “shall” actually meant “may” and “may” actually meant “shall”.

    I’d use the term real instead of red. The reactionary in me wants to keep blue our very own.

    What you say is very true, right up to the eastern edge of N.Y. state. There are almost no rural white areas where Democrats are still in play. Only the Lake Superior shore in Michigan and Minnesota, and the Iron Range. But the latter sent a Republican to Congress recently– they’ve finally figured out there isn’t much farmer nor labor left in the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.

    The Driftless area, a little ways down the Mississippi, usually goes Dem in presidential elections, but went for Trump this time. The GOP only carries it in landslide years, e.g., Nixon or Reagan. Trump indeed was a landslide candidate, though– among whites. And the Driftless is very, very white, even after the South Side Project People dump in Dubuque.

    Come to think of it, Dubuque County went GOP for the first time since Eisenhower.

    As for New England, the difference is in the nature of the rural areas. There are way too many college towns, and the terrain is better suited for hobby goat farms than for traditional farming. People who don’t want to spend the whole day driving at 80mph get the rural advantages of Montana or Idaho packed into a state the size of one of their counties. If things get dull, Boston, Montreal, and even NYC are closer than Denver or Seattle would be from somewhere in the Rockies.

    That describes the input. As for the output, half the natives leave, as always. But the result of that is very diffferent in an age when families have two, rather than twelve, children.

    These riots–and anything associated with Antifa–are never peaceful.

    That’s actually their whole point and reason for existence.

    (Be careful about buying this book. Profits do go to Antifa. Try to buy used if possible.)

    It’s literally a negative movement in the nominal sense primarily geared toward tearing down “fascists.” The author does provide a history of Antifa, but he (and the financial backers) are neoliberal Jews trying to act tough. (Funny how Antifa has a minimal presence in Israel.)

    Antifa first kinda started off in the 1920s-1930s to fight Socialist backstabbers like Mussolini and Hitler who betrayed the Communists. Essentially they fought like the Crips vs. The Bloods but with heavy ideology involved. Antifa lost in Italy and Germany but the point is mute because you know who lost World War 2. Mark Bray (author) takes great pride in the ideological battles and fights they sometimes one. (They only really won fights against the small fascist groups in England.) Essentially that’s the high point of Antifa because really does die after WW2.

    After a few decades Antifa reforms in the late 1960s to fight skinhead nazis in Europe and the global punk music scene. (Which is a massive downgrade that Bray tries to smooth over. The ideological divide between Trotsky and Stalin in 1930s Antifa are downgraded into lousy punk rock styles in the 1970s-1990s.) It’s a big drop in prestige, but helps explain modern Antifa. Essentially it’s Skinheads vs Antifa Knuckleheads fighting each other in nasty bars listening to even nastier music. This period kinda covers the 1970s to 2003. Most of Antifa’s leadership class are indeed made up of Gen Xers who grew up to the punk music scene when the internet wasn’t a thing. This was apparently a time when white kids knew how to fight and survive a scruffy situation.

    (I’m a Millennial that believes Biden’s 1994 crime bill is the primary reason why we’re pussies with weak hand strength. That Bill was designed to shackle blacks but any white kid who tried “masculine experimentation” like fist fighting could potentially be grilled my minimum sentencing requirements as well. A school fight could be a college application killer as well.)

    Anyway, Bray comments it took a while for the Gen X Antifa people to get used to internet trolls and attack fascists on the internet. They just weren’t meeting and marching in physical places anymore.

    Also, current Antifa is really not that much economically Marxist anymore. It’s an anti-hate group united by its hate of the “fascist” haters. It’s an umbrella organization that can include Neoliberals that focus on sexual liberation that still believe in corporate stocks and economic exploitation of poor whites. (Antifa just can’t be too picky these days.)

    I can ramble on and on, but apparently Portland “Rose” Antifa is the oldest Antifa chapter in the US founded in 2007. (I vaguely remember them during the Great Recession/Occupy Wall Street years.) So they’ve had plenty of time and fertile soil to grow.

    It’s been observed that despite theoretically different ideologies, when you look at the actual policies they want, the far-Left and far-Right tend to converge on shared territory. Similarly, I’m sure Whiskey and Jonah Goldberg would be at one an-other’s throats ideologically, but in terms of actual policies they’re on the same horseshoe. It’s the same with all the conspiracytards. They are disgusted with the prissy-boys in the neoconservative movement, how emasculated they are, how they let their women push them around. But they are not really capable of thinking for themselves, so they just think up new, and just as stupid, justifications for all that neoconservative nonsense.

    The blogger omega virgin revolt(himself a crackpot) has a term “white vagina worshiping nationalists” for people like Whiskey. One thing he pointed out is that even while they use “misogynistic” rhetoric, when they talk about how horrid white women are, they are never suggesting that white men actually fight back against white women. It’s always fight back against some other group, usually Jewish or non-white men. This is what Whiskey is doing, claiming white women are holding a dagger to our throats but not suggesting taking the dagger away and turning on the aggressor. No, he’s saying we have to go kill a bunch of entirely innocent foreign men.

    I think Whiskey really does want that socially conservative society back, I don’t think he’s a Mossadnik. He’s just too stupid to formulate a workable plan on how to get what he wants. The neocons, they can do it. They have their goal, keep my apartment in Tel Aviv secure, and then are smart enough to formulate plans on how to accomplish that goal through tricking Americans into fighting for them. Whiskey’s too stupid, so he just blindly follows them right to the edge of the cliff.

    I can ramble on and on, but apparently Portland “Rose” Antifa is the oldest Antifa chapter in the US founded in 2007.

    91 years after the Portland Rosebuds were the first US-based team to make it to the Stanley Cup final. They lost, but Seattle won the next year.

    This was years before anyone in the Northeast had heard of the Stanley Cup. The first pro team there, the Bruins, didn’t form until 1924.

    So in other words you don’t have any argument against it. Peace is another thing we can’t have in a multicultural society. My position as a White man is dependent on my groups strength and status. My avoidance of being Reginald Denny’d depends on White men being feared and dominant. Not my financial status, or fame or anything else. Outside of super billionaires and a few ultra famous actors, no White man can make enough money to hire men with guns and political influence to avoid being Denny’d now.

    You were the one who wanted all this multi-racial, multi cultural stuff. Well, what did you expect? Every White man has the example of the Holocaust to look forward to, if his group does not have enough dominance and deterrence. I am fine with say, nuking Grenada or something. Just to make my group high status and victorious.

    I sure as hell can’t depend on rule of law. That was dying with Denny, and dead on arrival in Portland. To be clear, I’m fine with half the Third World dead if it means I stay out of a work camp.

    Reagan, intuitively knew that Grenada, short, sharp, and then get out was just the ticket. Any long war the urban professional class threatened will sabotage guaranteed. We sure as hell should stay out of the ME as its a disaster. We should certainly study Israeli politics, other successful LEADERS who actually WON did: Orban in Hungary, Law and Justice in Poland, to some extent even Putin. Israel won’t be around too much longer, Obama saw to that and Iran will eventually nuke them into oblivion for the same reason Xerxes burnt Athens.

    And how do you suggest fight back? Female power is entirely based on consumer spending and about 85% of all consumer purchases made or influenced by women. There is no fight back, none, because there can be none. Short term.

    Indeed I would argue that our current demoralized state is due to our long defeats in Iraq and Afghanistan. We’ve been in Afghanistan for nearly 20 years. We have not won a thing. By contrast, WWII was a huge win. Even the tie in Korea meant that the White man was in control, dominant, and this cultural degeneracy was nowhere. Even into the late 1960’s the cultural win from WWII allowed us to brush of Ralph Ellison’s Million Man March to stop the Apollo mission and walk on the moon.

    As long as we have women, dominance matters. Muslims know that and its why they dominate their women every chance they get. The Japanese and Chinese do as well in different ways. In neither country are women even remotely treated as equals.

    I would not live in Israel if you paid me — it will be nuked fairly shortly. Moreover while I am Catholic and very much would like to see the Sea of Galilee where Jesus performed many miracles, it is a place hostile to those of my faith. A pity but there it is. Which is a shame since it was Bibi who solved the issue of how to win in a deeply pozzed and feminized society. If you think America is bad, or the UK, try a nation founded by Socialist Jews who tried to raise their kids communally, and embraced every nutty idiocy under the sun. Who were for decades ruled by utter socialists including the ugliest female PM ever conceived, and men like Yitzak Rabin.

    Bibi’s method, was to run daring but low risk bombing missions that raised the prestige of the daring military types not the socialist gibs people. In that he probably copied Clinton in the Balkans. Who copied Margaret Thatcher in turn. You will notice Clinton was impeached but not removed. Bombing Serbia had something to do with that. Thatcher probably got another six years in office out of the Falklands. Bibi only got in trouble when the Hezbollah Lebanon thing turned into WWI Mini Me, which he quickly terminated.

    Human beings and particularly women are not computing machines. They surf off emotion and women more then men for evolutionary reasons.

    Peace? That is something only safe, secure mono racial and mono cultural societies can afford. Iceland maybe. Not even Japan can afford it, too peaceful and China will simply gobble them up and erase them.

    If you wanted to be really Machiavellian you could argue only a massive defeat of our military by China could cause the system to collapse and a Napoleon to take charge. Say the Pacific fleet sunk and Hawaii and much of Alaska occupied. [The Chinese MAY be able to do this with long range air support, sort of a supersonic version of the German paratroops in Crete.] I would not gamble that far. I’d go with Bibi-Clinton-Thatcher-Reagan, that seemed to work: a five week war against a hapless opponent and that is over very very quickly before it can be sabotaged by urban professionals.

The new “Ferguson Effect” might be real justice.

    The way i read it was that he secretly reopened the case 5 months ago, but, try as he might, he doesn’t think he can make the case so, with a heavy heart, he’s going to not charge Darren Wilson even though he’s totally not exonorating him because Wilson’s a bad bad man, but our pesky legal system just isn’t able to bring justice for Michael Brown’s poor suffering parents.

    The forensic evidence is what it is. Local autopsy, FBI called in, family autopsy – nothing changed.

    The Gentle Giant’s DNA on the gun means he was trying a disarm when the first shot was fired. There was no “Hands up”, no “don’t shoot”, nope. All lies. There was an attempted gun grab followed by a shot. I expect the powder stippling on his extremity also showed just how close Gentle Giant was to the muzzle – very, very close.

    Taking it to trial would mean losing no matter what, because the fact is Michael Brown was trying to murder a cop and he got shot. That’s the tl;dr, that’s all there is, there ain’t no more.

    My point is that even with all that and the Dept of Justice investigation that also found nothing, this new blackety black prosecutor, 5 years after the fact still wasted 5 months in a secret “investigation” trying to come up with something to pin on the poor cop (or pretending to).

    Proverbs 6:16-19
    There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

    People look down on others for different reasons; it might be related to their education, their accomplishments, their obedience…OR THEIR BACKGROUND! Pride has many different faces: some people are “holier than thou” while others are “worldlier than thou”; one person is proud of being so well-read while another person say, “I’m not book smart; I’m street smart”; one person is proud of being fashionable while another person is proud of being oblivious to fashion. Pride is an insidious, pervasive thing, especially if it is related to one’s whiteness, blackness, or redness.

    John 4:1-42

    Jesus broke with societal and religious customs to honor the dignity of the Samaritan woman. He associated with a woman of mixed origins, a moral and social outsider, in public and asked her for a drink of water. He demonstrated dignity of the most highest degree-every person is precious.

    God has commanded his disciples to love all of humanity. When God communicates Himself, when He fills us with Himself, He fills us with His Divine Life, with His infinite Love,

    for He is Love. He confirms that we must share in this Divine nature for God to attract us to Himself because sharing His Grace is His nature.

    All men are equal in their natural dignity; human beings are NOT superior or inferior in this regard. Moreover, God created us in His likeness. As the children of God, we are redeemed by Christ, and bear witness to His divine calling and destiny, regardless of one’s group identity and locality on this Earth. To deny these truths is to deny the authority of God. God has identified His people as those who adhere to His ways, the brotherhood of humankind. God unifies humanity under His banner.

    From the beginning, this one Church has been marked by a great diversity which comes from both the variety of God’s gifts and the diversity of those who receive them. Within the unity of the People of God, a multiplicity of peoples and cultures is gathered together. Among the Church’s members, there are different gifts, offices, conditions, and ways of life. The great richness of such diversity is not opposed to the Church’s unity. Yet sin and the burden of its consequences constantly threaten the gift of unity. And so the Apostle has to exhort Christians to “maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

    Pretty much. Keep in mind the 1980s-1990s Antifa leadership crop were raised in the “end of history” era when fascism was essentially dead (despite warnings from the SPLC) and the Soviet Union was likely to die soon.

    If you read between the lines of the book, it really was a long series of bar fights, punk music, and violent altercations scattered mainly across Europe. But apparently Antifa had a talent for “doxxing” people before the internet. They’d gather information and have a major newspaper publish the names and hierarchy of whatever group they didn’t like. That kind of tactic was popular in the Parliamentary parties across Europe.

    Of course things are a bit different now. You also get the sense that Trump’s victory jolted Antifa with uranium fuel rods in terms of financial backing and social/political support. The author discreetly points out that if Trump is removed with a Neoliberal like Biden, the cultural marxists (Feminists, BLM) will go back to consumer normalcy and the membership roles will plummet.

    That pistol the woman waved around was not functional. It had been assembled incorrectly .

    Now, as to the legal side: This site has multiple articles on the issue, including possible evidence tampering by the St. Louis authorities.

    An Assistant Circuit Attorney ordered the ballistics lab to disassemble, and then reassemble correctly, the handgun which one of the “Boomerwaffen” had disabled by disassembling it and reassembling it incorrectlydeliberately to make sure it never went off in the courtroom, in one of their PI cases, or elsewhere. The idea of the Circuit Attorney’s Office was to lie and say it was functional when they seized it, and to use it in (obviously, under the circumstances, bogus) ballistics tests.

    ‘My cousin lives in Prineville.’

    So what does he say happened?

    I’m making some effort here to collate all these various rumors, stray bits slipping past the censors, etc.

    A company I once worked for had manufacturing facilities located in McMinneville TN. with around a hundred people employed there. During the summer months it was a regular occurrence for the phone to go unanswered on any random normal workday as they would close up shop to go fishing because it was a “real nice day out”. This would happen regardless of workload, despite any outstanding shortages. It was just a different approach to life, one I was rather jealous of actually….

    If it’s possible, can you change the blog address in your “Website” link so that it doesn’t have a “www.” ? That makes the link break.

    I’m sorry, we see each other very rarely, I can’t help. It was just a passing remark.

    If the case is reopened it should be to prosecute all the witnesses who lied to police about what happened. The police chose to ignore these people in the interest of not further inflaming the situation, but if they insist on reopening the affair they need to be hit with the book.

    The teachers unions and teachers associations have been hard left since the 1940s. In Jewish areas like NYC since 1900.

    They voted for the Stalinist FDR, which was pretty damned un-American of them.

    He wrote a book about how to take over America. One of his methods was public employees unions.

    However, even this was a bit too far for him. He opposed public sector unions. At least while he was in power.

    Within fifteen years of his death, though, even Republicans in the Upper Midwest were backing teacher and other “public servant” unions.

    Well, at least they’ve got the police on their side. Sometimes the firefighters, too.

    At one time, my brother employed a yard man (white) whose whole working life seemed to be arranged around his fishing schedule. My brother would sometimes ask him to spread pine straw or fertilize the bushes or whatever, but the guy would answer something like, “Well, I’ll be out fishing Tuesday and Wednesday, so I don’t think I could get to it till next week.”

    Despite this, he did his work well and my brother could recommend him to various other potential clients. However, the guy would only agree to take them on if doing so did not reduce his time spent fishing. He lived in a trailer, on or near a lake, and had probably a small jon boat, and seemed to have found the key to happiness.

    It’s almost exclusively a Dominican and Puerto Rican thing calling yourself “Spanish” – that being said it ain’t the white Puerto Ricans / Dominicans who say that lol

    Doesn’t contradict what I said and comes from centuries ago. Vanity presses exist because people want to write books more than they want to be rich authors. How much did Hilberg make off DEJ? I cannot imagine that was “profitable,” when you consider the time spent putting it together. It wasn’t about profit.

    Yes, it does. The study included all interpersonal relationships between Swedes and non-Swedes, including sexual liaisons. Swedish men + Asian and Latinamerican women is way more common than Swedish woman + African or West Asian man. Rather than Swedish women seeking “dominance” elsewhere (as your butt buddy Whiskey suggested) it is Swedish men seeking and importing femininity from abroad. The altright/Russian narrative about Sweden (always a projection of one’s own reality on to Swedish men) has failed.

    Seventeenth Century Londoners had to pay 10 shillings to see people like this at the Bethlem Royal Hospital.

    Alternately, they could simply stand outside Parliament and see such people for free.

    I still personally am trying to keep my distance from Facebook. Right now I’m in the 30 day account cancellation waiting period.

    Can you please clarify what you mean by, “keep my distance from FB”?

    Perhaps they have changed their policy recently, but my understanding has always been that cancelling your FB account does not accomplish very much: FB still retains all your data after you cancel.

    People who understand FB a great deal better than I do insist that the only way to beat FB is to never sign up. Even then, FB will still do their best to build a “shadow profile” on you based on information other FB users have about you (e.g. your email address in their contacts).

    I don’t trust him or want him as President, but Zuckerberg is a classical antiquity fan: he wants to be another Augustus. You do not get to be another Augustus by being tactically stupid. This means being too visibly greedy/uncaring like Bezos, or being on record as being too craven to foreign powers, like Pichai or Cook, or blurting out how you really feel like Musk.

    He made some missteps, but he is getting the hang of politics.

    The study included all interpersonal relationships between Swedes and non-Swedes, including sexual liaisons.

    No it didn’t.

    “Relationship” ≠ casual sex.

    And you misinterpret the original study. It doesn’t matter if an immigrant woman is more likely to get a Swedish man than an immigrant man is likely to get a Swedish woman, when there are far more immigrant men than immigrant women. The net result is that more Swedish women get taken by immigrant men than Swedish men get taken by immigrant women. And this study was looking at immigration from 1998-2007, long before the Merkel’s Mistake invasion drove the immigrant men number up even more disproportionately beyond immigrant women. So Swedish women are going to foreign men even more now.

    All this because you were triggered by Whiskey. Smh.
