    OT Portland “riot” stickied* thread here

    http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/181158248

    This is a rolling sticky. Whereas normal threads move their page position depending on popularity, this thread has a fixed position. Whereas normal threads will show all replies (unless they broke a rule and got pruned, or their own poster deleted them), this thread displays the latest thousand comments and then overwrites whatever came before. It is a way of accommodating a major news item and not having eight simultaneous threads on the same topic. Take screengrabs because the comments you see will probably be gone soon.
    summary based on reports from others
    “Civic nationalist” (dissident right, but not really really dissident) people wanted to have a wholesome morning of group prayer and “line dancing to dad rock.” (Hat tip to The Australian.)
    Antifa, operating on the violence-justifying lie that we are all Nazis, threatened to show up with battle rifles and physically attack the line dancers. Remember, conspiracy throry is wrong because it leads to violence and damages faith in our institutions, but also Trump is a Russian and you are all Nazis.
    But this isn’t Ferguson. The riot cops tolerated Antifa for about two minutes and then did what riot cops do when Obama is not President. The prayer was uninterrupted and the day was pretty uneventful. This is very good for us in general and for the upcoming midterms.

    Yes, I agree. There are plenty of interviews with ex-Nazi propagandists (can't remember if it was recorded on "The World At War") who said that they were unemployed and did it for the money. Jeong is thoroughly morally corrupt and no different from them.

    That’s how Marvel Comics and the rest of the comics industry did it starting in 2012. I kid you not. They went through Twitter and found people to write some of their comics, which all failed miserably, based on what people said on Twitter and what was in their bios.

    “Lesbian non-binary organism? Great, you go write X-Men. Overweight non-heteronormative intersectionalist? Great, go write G.I. Joe because there is nothing more our disproportionately straight white male audience wants to see than a team of overweight, out-of-shape minority lesbians as super soldiers in books ostensibly about combat and fighting. You go gurl. Slay.”

    In all seriousness, though, this is how they control the media. They use social outlets like Twitter to find like minded individuals to hire who’ll be on their team and, therefore, write their propaganda – like if CNN put out a job listing for “democrats only.” Social media has made it much easier to do what media outlets were doing on a smaller scale in the past: stack the deck with fellow ideologues.

    and you wonder why Nordic women have a hard-on for African boys?
    , @Prof. Woland
    The NYT probably won't have this problem because the only white men they hire are gay but it will be interesting to see how this will effect any potential discrimination / wrongful terminations lawsuits there going forward. Talk about a hostile work environment. It would seem that anybody white would be on solid ground if they wanted to shake down their employer. It really is time for the Nation to reconsider / sunset out the discrimination / affirmative action laws that were enshrined a generation or two ago. In the end we might end up thanking Sarah Jeong for the sparking the fire that burned down all of the affirmative discrimination laws like Rosa Parks in reverse.

    Oh come on. Leftist racism and thought policing manifests in mainstream professional norms and militantly enforced laws. What legal decision exists to gratify a right wing talking point the same way actual judges are taking Tiki Nazis and Electronic Russians completely seriously? What you're trying to torture into a counterpart is inescapably smaller, weaker, and later, and happened in reaction to them. Everything we talk about is lunatic virulent violence-causing conspiracy theory while the mainstream media is still babbling in total seriousness about Trump the Russian. The knockout game was them trying (and often succeeding) to kill us and BLM was them trying (and often succeeding) to kill cops or effect a drawdown in policing. There's no parallel.
    Furthermore, if we decide to try to be nice, what benefit could we possibly expect from people who think we are cave-dwelling goblins?

    , @Flubber
    The issue with modern politics is that the "left" vs the "right is a puppet show. The uniparty exists and it ran both.

    What Trump did was invade the right like a cancer and convert it to his agenda. Now he has to take on the left.

    But the uniparty isn't taking this lying down. The Deep state/media indistinguishable thanks to Operation Mockingbird is fighting back as is evidenced by the daily hysteria and its deleterious effects.

    Trump may be coarse, but he has to have the hide of a rhino to withstand the pressure he's under, and to quote Goldwater "moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!"

    I just pray that Trump takes the deep state down. Its our only chance.

    Y’know, calling this ring “Israeli” just because its leadership was Israeli seems like a hasty decision. Let’s definitely mention the Israelis in, like, the fifth paragraph, but punch up the focus on the milf procuress Columbiana with the fakers and the tight clothes. In fact let’s call it a “Colombian sex ring” that just kinda happened to have Israelis in it giving business advice.

  25. A perfect storm may have just taken place. East Asians are one of the few non-white groups who you can still make fun of in a non-P.C. way. Other non-white groups aren’t particularly fond of them and they’re too successful and unrhythmic to get the same cachet that members of the Global South get. At the same time, Jeong has gone out of her way to be the Left’s vicious front-line attack dog. She craves a fight and is getting exactly what she wanted.

    Look at this brilliant cartoon by conservative-leaning cartoonist Ben Garrison. His portrayal of the doggish Jeong closely resembles the pejorative Warner Brothers cartoons made of Hideki Tojo and other bucktoothed Japanese leaders during World War Two: https://grrrgraphics.com/paper-trained-sarah-jeong-new-york-times-cartoon/

    While not explicit, the LOTR movies had to make their goblins (Orcs) whiter and more suburbanite as the movies progressed. Presumably not to offend people like Jeong. Azog was made to look like Goering and Bolg was his surfer dude son. There can be little doubt who the original Middle Earth ethnicities where derived from.

    Ironically, historically in Wagnerian Operas and the Sagas, it was the (((Dwarfs))) who lived underground, were short, had ugly hook nosed faces, and loved gold. East Asians really did not even figure into the tale at all. Perhaps that is what most infuriates Jeong the most. It is a metaphor for the rest of her recently arrived clan who in spite of their financial success have zero cultural impact or influence. No one wants to be Asian, most of all her. They spend all of their attention trying to be something they can never really be with the most they can hope for is to screw things up for the ones they are envious of which perfectly explains her hatred. It also explains the behavior of some of the other tribes in the movie also.

    Unlike if you are white, and you dare to say anything that even gives off the slightest whiff of apostasy, in which case your job is just one of many things you’ll lose. Friends, family, memberships, professional contacts–your freedom even–and sometimes your life itself. Such is ‘privilege’.

  34. I’ve just been watching a talk Sarah Jeong gave two years ago, about issues surrounding adblockers. She sounds completely civil and sane, humorous, and discussing topics of real import in a digital society.

    And yet the video now has 700 downvotes compared to 200 upvotes, and comments are switched off. So it looks as if the Sarah Jeong who wanted to “cancel white people” has eclipsed, at least for now, the Sarah Jeong who is a decent technology journalist.

    So what happens next? In her first mea culpa, she expressed regrets but said she was reacting to sexist and racist trolls. People already on her wavelength seem to accept that. But now she has become a lightning rod for suspicion that elite institutions like the media have an anti-white agenda. That won’t go away so easily.

    These girls are no safe space SJW, these are real people - with real jobseven - so - - what's to dislike about all this - - - unless you were a racist or a white supremacist, or concerned with moral questions (= possibly a racist & a white supremacist at the same time).

    The natural habitat of such problems seems to be the vicious circle, nowadays: A snake, who's eaten by a snake who's tail is eaten by a snake...
    (I don't know wether such snake eating really exists - but it does exist in my mind and therefor in the minds of countless readers of iSteve - so it's quite real anyway and I shouldn't bother in the velvet darkness (Allen Holdsworth) of this hot summer night).

    I don’t know wether [sic]* such snake eating really exists – but it does exist in my mind

    It’s existed in a lot of people’s minds, for a long time.


    *”Wether” in English means kastrierter Hammel or Ziegenbock.

    Watch those (often inaudible) Hs in the interrogative words. They survive in the question words, as they do in Danish (hv-), some Slavic languages (kt-), and even Scots (quh-). But the Germans and Dutch– and East Anglians and most North Americans in speech– discarded them long ago.

    Dearest commenters on iSteve, especially Reg Caesar, tyrone, J. Ross and Sam Malone, let me make known the following facts in this honorable and most interesting public sphere:

    Nobody on the internet at least, shows any proof (or reference) that the imagination I happened to write down (or created while playing with snakes in order to visualise those two words vicious circle I had used before) ahh: - : - - nobody seems to claim, that there are more than two snakes eating up one another at the same time, but that was what I have written about.

    Two snakes eating up on another - that's happening at times.

    One snake eating up itself is well known since ages and mentioned in all kinds of myths and tales.The greek called it oroboros and such an oroboros might well be depicted in the ancient etching Reg Ceasar, that you show in your - very kind indeed (and thought provoking!) - answer to my post.

    As it seems, I have been intertwining two old symbols or thought-pictures (Walther Benjamin), namely that of the oroboros and that of the rat king. I might have done well in mixing up the oroboros with the rat king, because not only are both highly sexually charged, as are the fake interventions of those truly capitalist asian girls and their false accusations of rape (= their rape fantasies), but: The rat king is even known to symbolize people, who try to "live off other persons" (cf. the wikipedia-quote below) - and that too quite obviously is at stake here with Sarah Jeong & Co.

    (Btw.: I have seen (and read in) an exemplar of Conrad Gesner's "Historia animalum" on wednesday this week, and it turns out that Gesner's book from the 16th century is mentioned in the wikipedia-article as a reference for the rat king - my mind leaps at times (cf. Jumpin' Jack Flash ).
    Next thing: I misspelled the word whether - and therefor mentioned a castrated male sheep or goat, as Reg Caesar points out.

    Now combine those four things: 1) The Oroboros, 2) the multitude of snakes being entangled because they are all eating themselves up, and 3) the rat king, and 4) the wether. If one combines these four things, one might find, that that's quite a tool-box in order to understand what's going on with the sexually loaded accusations of these career-oriented young asian young women as Sarah Jeong. - The last question that needs to be solved now is the following: Just whom the wether in my musings about these young and sharp minded ladies might stand for?
    Hint: Could it refer to some sort of highly cicilized men in a rich and mighty nation?

    (I do state not for the first time, but for maybe the hundredth time in my writing live, that the expression Freudian slip is usually understood as equalling a falsehood - but that's not all that there is about the Freudin slip, especilly the occurance of intertwtined mental pictures and half-intentionally misspelled words and all that: It has a quite positive and productive side to it: It can clarify things (the wikipedia article about the oroboros ends with Kékule`s vision, which helped him to write down the structure of benzene: "(...) long rows, sometimes more closely fitted together; all twining and twisting in snake-like motion. But look! What was that? One of the snakes had seized hold of its own tail, and the form whirled mockingly before my eyes. As if by a flash of lightning I awoke; and this time also I spent the rest of the night in working out the consequences of the hypothesis." So - maybe it's time to add the Kiefian rightly actions or functions to the Freudian faulty actions or functions as a result of a Freudian slip.

    wikipedia about the rat king:
    The original German term, Rattenkönig, was calqued into English as rat king, and into French as roi des rats. The term was not originally used in reference to actual rats, but for persons who lived off others. Conrad Gesner in Historia animalium (1551–58) stated: "Some would have it that the rat waxes mighty in its old age and is fed by its young: this is called the rat king." Martin Luther stated: "finally, there is the Pope, the king of rats right at the top." Later, the term referred to a king sitting on a throne of knotted tails.[2]

    PPS
    I'm a tad dyslexic. And this tad at times shows up more distinctly when I'm tired - as was the case last night, when I wrote my comment right before I went to bed.

    PPS (esp. with regard to tyrone's really nice (no irony here!) comment:
    I was soberer (=completely sober) last night than lots of people would think possible after reading my post. But that reaction to things I write doesn't happen infrequently, in fact it has happened at least twice, here on this blog before. (I have to admit, that I do like that).

    Hmmm. That’s interesting. Particularly since what has stuck in my craw about this whole story isn’t any of the racial angles, but the fact that Sarah Jeong has a Harvard JD and is a NY Times editori staffer writing about (of all things) technology. What exactly about a Harvard law degree qualifies you to be a journalist, or to know anything at all about technology? Clearly, a Harvard JD is a universal credential that qualifies you- in 2018 America- to do whatever you want. What are the other universal qualifications? A Wharton MBA? I don’t know… Anyway, I never thought Sarah Jeong meant a word of her hate whitey tweets, but she, over the course of her life, has clearly been very cagey about advancing her own interest: from getting into Harvard Law to the editorial board of the New York Times by 30, she’s made the absolute most out of being a member of a structurally racist society. Really funny how all of that structural racism seems to have lined up for her.

    The right bears some of the blame for the degradation of public discourse that Jeong represents. Trump in particular, but also the Birthers and Pizzagaters and 4chan trollers.

    Scott Adams tells us Trump made his outrageous false statements to provoke the overeaction of the left on issues they were weak on, keeping the focus on crime and immigration and off corporate domination of the USA and extreme and growing economic inequality. That strategy does not seem to be sustainable in the long run.

    Maybe Sessions has a 3D chess plan of letting Mueller's investigation continue just to the point of inducing Trump to retire to be replaced by Pence. His decision is hard to explain otherwise.

    The issue with modern politics is that the “left” vs the “right is a puppet show. The uniparty exists and it ran both.

    What Trump did was invade the right like a cancer and convert it to his agenda. Now he has to take on the left.

    But the uniparty isn’t taking this lying down. The Deep state/media indistinguishable thanks to Operation Mockingbird is fighting back as is evidenced by the daily hysteria and its deleterious effects.

    Trump may be coarse, but he has to have the hide of a rhino to withstand the pressure he’s under, and to quote Goldwater “moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!”

    I just pray that Trump takes the deep state down. Its our only chance.

    I think that I am restating something that I have heard either from Sailer or one of the commentators here, but this explains a lot of the craziness of SJW activities. Rioting when Charles Murray comes to speak at a college, carrying a mattress around campus for a term or so, refusing to sit down when an afghan criminal is being deported, these are activities that make SJW look foolish to the general public. They can be career builders though if the people who are hiring you other SJWs though.

    By hiring someone with a history of making irrational and anti white statements you can also show that you are more woke than hiring someone who sounds sane.

    In this long run this trend may help the alt right as SJWs alienate more and more voters. Although this is not entirely reassuring. In the short to medium term SJW may display their wokeness by having us all shot.

    If there's a parallel to our current crop of SJWs, it's the Cultural Revolution in China that started in the late 1960s. The young commies, all a bunch of tools being manipulated by Mao and his wife, were let loose on anyone who didn't toe the line in an attempt to destroy Mao's enemies.

    Our current SJWers are trying to imitate this, and are mighty upset by Trump's plan to make them get a job, grow up and shut up, and become plain old bourgeois. The SJWer are clinging desperately to their adolescence before it dies in the face of reality. They'd slit their own throats before becoming responsible grownups.

    She gets euphemistically quite close to the truth. However this tweet:

    I really don’t think I would ever have gotten a staff job but for my twitter persona and audience, and the idea that I or Sarah or anyone like us could build that without occasionally saying something unwise just seems unrealistic to me.

    This strikes me as false. This wasn’t a game of swinging for the fences, and these editors/gatekeepers weren’t looking for home runs and ignoring the sort of tweets (like #CancelWhitePeople) as a kind of strike or ball that came as some inevitable part of “being brash”. No, the anti-white tweets were the “home runs” themselves. That was nailing the colors to the mast, that let the editors know that this prospective journalist was /ourguy (from their perspective).

    The process seems as follows:
    1. Prospective journalist writes anti-white tweets. I was going to include POC but they hire self-haters as well.
    2. (((Editor))) notices wannabe journalist and throws some shekels their way.
    3. (((Editor))) eventually hires anti-white journalist after proving their worth.

    BTW Which establishment journalists/editors are actually criticizing Jeong, other than Andrew Sullivan? Other than those of the right who aren’t engaging in this practice or acting as gatekeepers in such a fashion?

    Well, it isn't as if the modern post-1990s GOP, aka the Stupid Party, does much to shut down the stereotype, on everything from African birth control to trying to give tax cuts-and H2B deals-to people who actively donate to their opponents.

    After Karl Rove and his boys purged any intellectual currents and figures in the GOP at odds with Bushism (from Scowcroft to Buchanan to Johnson), the GOP woke up from the disastrous results of Bushism in 2008 to find that it had lost the ability to creatively think about anything. This created a large ideological vacuum. Now, purely thanks to Democratic incompetence, the GOP managed to find itself in a more powerful position than it had ever been in since the 1920s by 2014, even if they managed to screw up 2012 by insisting on nominating a donor and a Rand fanboy against all common electoral sense. But this led to the reality that created Trump: the GOP confused this with support for "Conservatism", as defined by them, and since the donors controlled all serious debate within the party, nobody could disturb their institutionalized mental escapism. This was a reality that led the K-street boys to think that Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham were genuinely good Presidential choices.

    Enter an outsider who couldn't be controlled and never failed to get free media attention, and all of a sudden, you had a lot of Republicans voters willing to support him purely by virtue of the fact that the GOP Bonzen visibly hated him.

    Makes you miss Dick Nixon, huh? Yeah, sure, he was a crook, but listening to some of the tapes and him talking about policy (betraying not just intelligence, but a... *genuine* concern with the fate of ordinary Americans) makes my mind go to a dark place when I consider the likely analogous conversations that the likes of Dubya, Obama, or Trump have had in the Oval Office. Anyway, as I've oft said already, history will record the Baby Boomers taking over power just as the USSR collapsed as the defining point that led to the past quarter century.

  49. Before everyone dogpiles on, I think we can recognize that this is at least a sincere defense of Jeong insofar as her approach into the news and opinion industry she eventually broke into. Traffic-driven publishing outlets want incendiary hot takes from minorities that people will click on, whether or not they agree or disagree with the premise of the article. Jeong was canny enough to supply them.

    The problem isn’t the hot takes but the fact that some groups of people get fired for these sorts of things and others don’t. Personally, I don’t really want anyone fired for shitposting. But as long as the double standard is this blatant, we’ve gotta do our level best to make sure her career gets flushed.

    If you really want to understand the underlying social issues that Sarah Jeong and her ilk represent, you should really read the reddit hapas Manifesto. Those half breed white-asian mixes droping unapologetic truth bombs and shiving their parents right in the ovaries.

  61. It’s interesting that East Asian women are so much more represented in the SJW movement than East Asian men.

    Think of the personality traits that you associate with East Asian men. They’re quiet, timid, socially isolationist, highly industrious, ruthlessly efficient, business-like, unemotional, stoic, conformist, miserly, and misanthropic. They leave you alone and want you to leave them alone. East Asian men are people who don’t like to waste time and have minimal tolerance for bull5hit.

    Now imagine such a group of men interacting with the SJW movement. Now imagine that these men observe their women getting heavily into SJWism.

    I wonder what they think about it.

    If you want to see the typical East Asian male personality type, watch this. One of the girls tells him to “go back to Beijing.”

    Can you imagine Mr. Miyagi becoming a SJW?

    East Asian men are unadapted for the SJW niche.

    Wow. I'm almost Oriental. More importantly – reading your fair summary makes me realise the toxic soup of the Current Year is converging Europeans and Orientals, particularly the males. We used to be gregarious, now we are more isolationist and misanthropic. We used to be generous, willing to gladly help Joe and his family if they fell on hard luck; now we don't much care to support Mohammed and his seven brats; Tyrone, who won't get a job; or Xiopeng, who doesn't even speak Engrish. (Hence the government replaces charity by stealing from us what we will no longer donate, then redistributing it to our enemies....)

    There's an inversion at work, too: we used to be far more industrious; increasingly we are not because we are hip to the game's being rigged against us (confiscatory taxes; actual racism and sexism denying hiring, promotions, and raises; prices constantly raising and wages constantly lowering via overpopulation; etc.).

    It seems that the real charge against Sarah Jeong in this case is that she is exploiting her relative power over this PRC woman, and utterly neglecting the particularities of her actual life. I find this not dissimilar to her anti-white tweets. She is consumed with hate, for sure. But does she actually hate white people? No. She is an elitist striver who assumes that all the people who matter will recognize that she is really talking about all the loser white people, and not about the elites around and above her.

    Oh come on. Leftist racism and thought policing manifests in mainstream professional norms and militantly enforced laws. What legal decision exists to gratify a right wing talking point the same way actual judges are taking Tiki Nazis and Electronic Russians completely seriously? What you're trying to torture into a counterpart is inescapably smaller, weaker, and later, and happened in reaction to them. Everything we talk about is lunatic virulent violence-causing conspiracy theory while the mainstream media is still babbling in total seriousness about Trump the Russian. The knockout game was them trying (and often succeeding) to kill us and BLM was them trying (and often succeeding) to kill cops or effect a drawdown in policing. There's no parallel.
    Furthermore, if we decide to try to be nice, what benefit could we possibly expect from people who think we are cave-dwelling goblins?

    It isn’t a matter of nice, but a worry the Trump and his crew turns off apoliticals, and also succumbs to the temptation of provoking the libs for fun in place of concrete good policy.

    Didn’t brutalize me - just disabused me of my previously held philosemitism, at least as far as Diaspora Jews were concerned. I still like Sabras in Israel, because they are “men with chests.” And Israeli girls were pretty cute if a bit dumpy. : )

    It's interesting that East Asian women are so much more represented in the SJW movement than East Asian men.

    Think of the personality traits that you associate with East Asian men. They're quiet, timid, socially isolationist, highly industrious, ruthlessly efficient, business-like, unemotional, stoic, conformist, miserly, and misanthropic. They leave you alone and want you to leave them alone. East Asian men are people who don't like to waste time and have minimal tolerance for bull5hit.

    Now imagine such a group of men interacting with the SJW movement. Now imagine that these men observe their women getting heavily into SJWism.

    I wonder what they think about it.

    If you want to see the typical East Asian male personality type, watch this. One of the girls tells him to "go back to Beijing."

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHhy2Gk_xik

    Can you imagine Mr. Miyagi becoming a SJW?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsVPrc9itYQ

    East Asian men are unadapted for the SJW niche.

    A while back, Anatoly Karlin posted a survey of Gen Z (high schoolers) on the last presidential election, in which, aside from whites, only Asian males supported Trump by a majority. All other groups, including Asian women, went for Hillary.

    Apparently, Bannon thinks that Trump is losing WHITE college-educated women: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2018/07/31/is-bannon-right-that-white-college-educated-women-have-given-up-on-republicans/

    She also appears to be involved in some journalistic integrity scandal. Check the comments here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17685056

    Now that I think about it, has Steve written about Naomi Wu before? It’s prime iSteve material.

    Here Naomi Wu is not mincing words:

    It seems that the real charge against Sarah Jeong in this case is that she is exploiting her relative power over this PRC woman, and utterly neglecting the particularities of her actual life. I find this not dissimilar to her anti-white tweets. She is consumed with hate, for sure. But does she actually hate white people? No. She is an elitist striver who assumes that all the people who matter will recognize that she is really talking about all the loser white people, and not about the elites around and above her.

    I've just been watching a talk Sarah Jeong gave two years ago, about issues surrounding adblockers. She sounds completely civil and sane, humorous, and discussing topics of real import in a digital society.

    And yet the video now has 700 downvotes compared to 200 upvotes, and comments are switched off. So it looks as if the Sarah Jeong who wanted to "cancel white people" has eclipsed, at least for now, the Sarah Jeong who is a decent technology journalist.

    So what happens next? In her first mea culpa, she expressed regrets but said she was reacting to sexist and racist trolls. People already on her wavelength seem to accept that. But now she has become a lightning rod for suspicion that elite institutions like the media have an anti-white agenda. That won't go away so easily.

    Pro-tip: There is no point to having a demonstration when you are outnumbered by the “counter-demonstration”. Not as many leftists would show up to an event in rural Oregon. But then you couldn’t troll irl and then claim victimhood.

    Somehow it seems worse if she did it for money. I mean if the hate were real, it would be honest and authentic. But if she did it for money, it means she assumed there was a constituency that wanted to buy just that. And it seems as if there is.

    Yes, I agree. There are plenty of interviews with ex-Nazi propagandists (can’t remember if it was recorded on “The World At War”) who said that they were unemployed and did it for the money. Jeong is thoroughly morally corrupt and no different from them.

    Our people still haven't learned anything. The left is defending its home ground, and we appear clueless to this obvious fact. If you want to have a right-wing demonstration, do it in a right-wing area. Antifa receives establishment protection, and they have the moral legitimacy of being backed by a majority of the resident urban population. The Antifa people are not likely to repeat the mistakes shown by the Black Lives Matter riots during the Late Obama Age collapse. There will be no dead far-rightists to serve as martyrs.

    When locals condemn them, they provoke violence & then step back while the police swoop in on their behalf.

    This must only happen in Bizarro world, because it’s the opposite of what usually happens in the world I live in. However, I understand that the Antifa troops didn’t enjoy the indulgence of the Portland police, as they did in Charlottesville. BTW, why is it still okay for them to show up at a demonstration wearing masks?

    A perfect storm may have just taken place. East Asians are one of the few non-white groups who you can still make fun of in a non-P.C. way. Other non-white groups aren’t particularly fond of them and they’re too successful and unrhythmic to get the same cachet that members of the Global South get. At the same time, Jeong has gone out of her way to be the Left’s vicious front-line attack dog. She craves a fight and is getting exactly what she wanted.

    Look at this brilliant cartoon by conservative-leaning cartoonist Ben Garrison. His portrayal of the doggish Jeong closely resembles the pejorative Warner Brothers cartoons made of Hideki Tojo and other bucktoothed Japanese leaders during World War Two: https://grrrgraphics.com/paper-trained-sarah-jeong-new-york-times-cartoon/

    Could you imagine this cartoonist depicting a black or Jewish pundit in a similar unflattering way?

    the media is a corporate media funded by corporations that buy ads that sell goods and services to CONSUMERS...this is all about consumption, GDP, future growth in nonwhite population, consumer demand ....and MONEY, honey...

    and until we realize that money is at the core of multiculturalism/political correctness etc, we have no chance...but to be truthful, we have no chance, anyway.

    and until we realize that money is at the core of multiculturalism/political correctness etc, we have no chance…but to be truthful, we have no chance, anyway.

    That's how Marvel Comics and the rest of the comics industry did it starting in 2012. I kid you not. They went through Twitter and found people to write some of their comics, which all failed miserably, based on what people said on Twitter and what was in their bios.

    "Lesbian non-binary organism? Great, you go write X-Men. Overweight non-heteronormative intersectionalist? Great, go write G.I. Joe because there is nothing more our disproportionately straight white male audience wants to see than a team of overweight, out-of-shape minority lesbians as super soldiers in books ostensibly about combat and fighting. You go gurl. Slay."

    In all seriousness, though, this is how they control the media. They use social outlets like Twitter to find like minded individuals to hire who'll be on their team and, therefore, write their propaganda - like if CNN put out a job listing for "democrats only." Social media has made it much easier to do what media outlets were doing on a smaller scale in the past: stack the deck with fellow ideologues.

    We seriously need to work on having our own media...and maybe our own country to go along with it.

    In the old days when white men ran things, comics got fanboys like Denny O’neil and Roy Thomas to write for them. The results are still worth reading.

    It looks like a cynical ploy on the part of Amazon to lock blacks ‘into the Amazon purchasing framework,’ which Bezos is so obsessed with. Lift money out of blacks’ pockets by making them cough up for Amazon TV. Oh, joy. Blacks do like to watch their TV, and Bezos has noticed.

    Writing '#Black lives matter' a hundred times landed an Indian kid a slot in Stanford. There are clear cut rewards for going along with the left in today's America. There's bound to be quite a bit of cognitive dissonance and self-hatred for whites who do. That's why they so vigorously shut down any facts or discussion questioning the Narrative.

    I think that I am restating something that I have heard either from Sailer or one of the commentators here, but this explains a lot of the craziness of SJW activities. Rioting when Charles Murray comes to speak at a college, carrying a mattress around campus for a term or so, refusing to sit down when an afghan criminal is being deported, these are activities that make SJW look foolish to the general public. They can be career builders though if the people who are hiring you other SJWs though.

    By hiring someone with a history of making irrational and anti white statements you can also show that you are more woke than hiring someone who sounds sane.

    In this long run this trend may help the alt right as SJWs alienate more and more voters. Although this is not entirely reassuring. In the short to medium term SJW may display their wokeness by having us all shot.

    If there’s a parallel to our current crop of SJWs, it’s the Cultural Revolution in China that started in the late 1960s. The young commies, all a bunch of tools being manipulated by Mao and his wife, were let loose on anyone who didn’t toe the line in an attempt to destroy Mao’s enemies.

    Our current SJWers are trying to imitate this, and are mighty upset by Trump’s plan to make them get a job, grow up and shut up, and become plain old bourgeois. The SJWer are clinging desperately to their adolescence before it dies in the face of reality. They’d slit their own throats before becoming responsible grownups.

    Exactly. Anyone who's shocked the NYT hired someone with a long history of anti-White tweets should be equally shocked the Marine Corps sniper school if full of guys who shot well during basic training. Sarah Jeong made it to the majors because she was scouted by the NYT. They're putting together an anti-White dream team and she made the cut.

    I was shocked they hired such a crass and unoriginal hater. I thought that, being the NYT, they could afford something better.

    http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/181158248
    This is a rolling sticky. Whereas normal threads move their page position depending on popularity, this thread has a fixed position. Whereas normal threads will show all replies (unless they broke a rule and got pruned, or their own poster deleted them), this thread displays the latest thousand comments and then overwrites whatever came before. It is a way of accommodating a major news item and not having eight simultaneous threads on the same topic. Take screengrabs because the comments you see will probably be gone soon.
    summary based on reports from others
    "Civic nationalist" (dissident right, but not really really dissident) people wanted to have a wholesome morning of group prayer and "line dancing to dad rock." (Hat tip to The Australian.)
    Antifa, operating on the violence-justifying lie that we are all Nazis, threatened to show up with battle rifles and physically attack the line dancers. Remember, conspiracy throry is wrong because it leads to violence and damages faith in our institutions, but also Trump is a Russian and you are all Nazis.
    But this isn't Ferguson. The riot cops tolerated Antifa for about two minutes and then did what riot cops do when Obama is not President. The prayer was uninterrupted and the day was pretty uneventful. This is very good for us in general and for the upcoming midterms.

    Thanks for the cogent summary. I had heard some rumblings about this, but I hesitated to wade through a reddit free-for-all.

    Well, it isn’t as if the modern post-1990s GOP, aka the Stupid Party, does much to shut down the stereotype, on everything from African birth control to trying to give tax cuts-and H2B deals-to people who actively donate to their opponents.

    After Karl Rove and his boys purged any intellectual currents and figures in the GOP at odds with Bushism (from Scowcroft to Buchanan to Johnson), the GOP woke up from the disastrous results of Bushism in 2008 to find that it had lost the ability to creatively think about anything. This created a large ideological vacuum. Now, purely thanks to Democratic incompetence, the GOP managed to find itself in a more powerful position than it had ever been in since the 1920s by 2014, even if they managed to screw up 2012 by insisting on nominating a donor and a Rand fanboy against all common electoral sense. But this led to the reality that created Trump: the GOP confused this with support for “Conservatism”, as defined by them, and since the donors controlled all serious debate within the party, nobody could disturb their institutionalized mental escapism. This was a reality that led the K-street boys to think that Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham were genuinely good Presidential choices.

    Enter an outsider who couldn’t be controlled and never failed to get free media attention, and all of a sudden, you had a lot of Republicans voters willing to support him purely by virtue of the fact that the GOP Bonzen visibly hated him.

    Makes you miss Dick Nixon, huh? Yeah, sure, he was a crook, but listening to some of the tapes and him talking about policy (betraying not just intelligence, but a… *genuine* concern with the fate of ordinary Americans) makes my mind go to a dark place when I consider the likely analogous conversations that the likes of Dubya, Obama, or Trump have had in the Oval Office. Anyway, as I’ve oft said already, history will record the Baby Boomers taking over power just as the USSR collapsed as the defining point that led to the past quarter century.

    I don’t know wether [sic]* such snake eating really exists – but it does exist in my mind

     

    It's existed in a lot of people's minds, for a long time.


    http://www.crystalinks.com/ouroborosalciato2.jpg

    *"Wether" in English means kastrierter Hammel or Ziegenbock.


    Watch those (often inaudible) Hs in the interrogative words. They survive in the question words, as they do in Danish (hv-), some Slavic languages (kt-), and even Scots (quh-). But the Germans and Dutch-- and East Anglians and most North Americans in speech-- discarded them long ago.

    Dearest commenters on iSteve, especially Reg Caesar, tyrone, J. Ross and Sam Malone, let me make known the following facts in this honorable and most interesting public sphere:

    Nobody on the internet at least, shows any proof (or reference) that the imagination I happened to write down (or created while playing with snakes in order to visualise those two words vicious circle I had used before) ahh: – : – – nobody seems to claim, that there are more than two snakes eating up one another at the same time, but that was what I have written about.

    Two snakes eating up on another – that’s happening at times.

    One snake eating up itself is well known since ages and mentioned in all kinds of myths and tales.The greek called it oroboros and such an oroboros might well be depicted in the ancient etching Reg Ceasar, that you show in your – very kind indeed (and thought provoking!) – answer to my post.

    As it seems, I have been intertwining two old symbols or thought-pictures (Walther Benjamin), namely that of the oroboros and that of the rat king. I might have done well in mixing up the oroboros with the rat king, because not only are both highly sexually charged, as are the fake interventions of those truly capitalist asian girls and their false accusations of rape (= their rape fantasies), but: The rat king is even known to symbolize people, who try to “live off other persons” (cf. the wikipedia-quote below) – and that too quite obviously is at stake here with Sarah Jeong & Co.

    (Btw.: I have seen (and read in) an exemplar of Conrad Gesner’s “Historia animalum” on wednesday this week, and it turns out that Gesner’s book from the 16th century is mentioned in the wikipedia-article as a reference for the rat king – my mind leaps at times (cf. Jumpin’ Jack Flash ).
    Next thing: I misspelled the word whether – and therefor mentioned a castrated male sheep or goat, as Reg Caesar points out.

    Now combine those four things: 1) The Oroboros, 2) the multitude of snakes being entangled because they are all eating themselves up, and 3) the rat king, and 4) the wether. If one combines these four things, one might find, that that’s quite a tool-box in order to understand what’s going on with the sexually loaded accusations of these career-oriented young asian young women as Sarah Jeong. – The last question that needs to be solved now is the following: Just whom the wether in my musings about these young and sharp minded ladies might stand for?
    Hint: Could it refer to some sort of highly cicilized men in a rich and mighty nation?

    (I do state not for the first time, but for maybe the hundredth time in my writing live, that the expression Freudian slip is usually understood as equalling a falsehood – but that’s not all that there is about the Freudin slip, especilly the occurance of intertwtined mental pictures and half-intentionally misspelled words and all that: It has a quite positive and productive side to it: It can clarify things (the wikipedia article about the oroboros ends with Kékule`s vision, which helped him to write down the structure of benzene: “(…) long rows, sometimes more closely fitted together; all twining and twisting in snake-like motion. But look! What was that? One of the snakes had seized hold of its own tail, and the form whirled mockingly before my eyes. As if by a flash of lightning I awoke; and this time also I spent the rest of the night in working out the consequences of the hypothesis.” So – maybe it’s time to add the Kiefian rightly actions or functions to the Freudian faulty actions or functions as a result of a Freudian slip.

    wikipedia about the rat king:
    The original German term, Rattenkönig, was calqued into English as rat king, and into French as roi des rats. The term was not originally used in reference to actual rats, but for persons who lived off others. Conrad Gesner in Historia animalium (1551–58) stated: “Some would have it that the rat waxes mighty in its old age and is fed by its young: this is called the rat king.” Martin Luther stated: “finally, there is the Pope, the king of rats right at the top.” Later, the term referred to a king sitting on a throne of knotted tails.[2]

    PPS
    I’m a tad dyslexic. And this tad at times shows up more distinctly when I’m tired – as was the case last night, when I wrote my comment right before I went to bed.

    PPS (esp. with regard to tyrone’s really nice (no irony here!) comment:
    I was soberer (=completely sober) last night than lots of people would think possible after reading my post. But that reaction to things I write doesn’t happen infrequently, in fact it has happened at least twice, here on this blog before. (I have to admit, that I do like that).

    Plus, medicine has surrendered to tabloid culture.
    , @Reg Cæsar
    I like your misspellings. "Cicilized" and "especilly" , which have, to borrow from wine snobs, tones of "sissy" and "silly". (Both of which are in turn encapsulated in the English word "gay", new and old senses.)

    "Freudian slip" is well-understood over here. Indeed, we have our own modern update, the Kinsley gaffe.
    , @Dieter Kief
    "Wow. You really are German!"

    Kinda - I am 1/2 sudete and 1/2 irish (Kief= O'Keeffe).

    I don't see quite like others. That's very good at times (my eyes are still way better than average), and in other cases, when it comes to focussing on little things like letters, it's a bit of a problem (I have much bigger than average blind spots). I saw only at my third attempt my mistake in civilized - especilly I could see right away. - And since I didn't see what's wrong with these words, my misspellings of them are absolutely unintenional (=can be interpreted in any way, but not in the the wrong - or right - way).

    Anyway - thanks for your hint at the wether and all that (dyslectic) - your whether-correction was indeed instructive for me - and eye opening too!

    (Btw. - just to make that clear: I do think that Sarah Jeong is ungreatful and flatout wrong).

Other non-white groups aren’t particularly fond of them and they’re too successful and unrhythmic to get the same cachet that members of the Global South get. At the same time, Jeong has gone out of her way to be the Left’s vicious front-line attack dog. She craves a fight and is getting exactly what she wanted.

    The right bears some of the blame for the degradation of public discourse that Jeong represents.

    Oh come on. Leftist racism and thought policing manifests in mainstream professional norms and militantly enforced laws. What legal decision exists to gratify a right wing talking point the same way actual judges are taking Tiki Nazis and Electronic Russians completely seriously? What you're trying to torture into a counterpart is inescapably smaller, weaker, and later, and happened in reaction to them. Everything we talk about is lunatic virulent violence-causing conspiracy theory while the mainstream media is still babbling in total seriousness about Trump the Russian. The knockout game was them trying (and often succeeding) to kill us and BLM was them trying (and often succeeding) to kill cops or effect a drawdown in policing. There's no parallel.
    Furthermore, if we decide to try to be nice, what benefit could we possibly expect from people who think we are cave-dwelling goblins?

    (Btw.: I have seen (and read in) an exemplar of Conrad Gesner's "Historia animalum" on wednesday this week, and it turns out that Gesner's book from the 16th century is mentioned in the wikipedia-article as a reference for the rat king - my mind leaps at times (cf. Jumpin' Jack Flash ).
    Next thing: I misspelled the word whether - and therefor mentioned a castrated male sheep or goat, as Reg Caesar points out.

    Now combine those four things: 1) The Oroboros, 2) the multitude of snakes being entangled because they are all eating themselves up, and 3) the rat king, and 4) the wether. If one combines these four things, one might find, that that's quite a tool-box in order to understand what's going on with the sexually loaded accusations of these career-oriented young asian young women as Sarah Jeong. - The last question that needs to be solved now is the following: Just whom the wether in my musings about these young and sharp minded ladies might stand for?
    Hint: Could it refer to some sort of highly cicilized men in a rich and mighty nation?

    (I do state not for the first time, but for maybe the hundredth time in my writing live, that the expression Freudian slip is usually understood as equalling a falsehood - but that's not all that there is about the Freudin slip, especilly the occurance of intertwtined mental pictures and half-intentionally misspelled words and all that: It has a quite positive and productive side to it: It can clarify things (the wikipedia article about the oroboros ends with Kékule`s vision, which helped him to write down the structure of benzene: "(...) long rows, sometimes more closely fitted together; all twining and twisting in snake-like motion.

    Two snakes eating up on another - that's happening at times.

    One snake eating up itself is well known since ages and mentioned in all kinds of myths and tales.The greek called it oroboros and such an oroboros might well be depicted in the ancient etching Reg Ceasar, that you show in your - very kind indeed (and thought provoking!) - answer to my post.

    A while back, Anatoly Karlin posted a survey of Gen Z (high schoolers) on the last presidential election, in which, aside from whites, only Asian males supported Trump by a majority. All other groups, including Asian women, went for Hillary.

    Asian names are either too short or too long. I just came across a guy who bills himself as a "Crossword Trainer and Demonstrator" in the Bangkok area. But his very name is two letters too long to fit in a daily crossword:

    Piyawat Ruengyodngarmlerd

    "Crossword" must refer to some kind of IT thingy.

    That's how Marvel Comics and the rest of the comics industry did it starting in 2012. I kid you not. They went through Twitter and found people to write some of their comics, which all failed miserably, based on what people said on Twitter and what was in their bios.

    "Lesbian non-binary organism? Great, you go write X-Men. Overweight non-heteronormative intersectionalist? Great, go write G.I. Joe because there is nothing more our disproportionately straight white male audience wants to see than a team of overweight, out-of-shape minority lesbians as super soldiers in books ostensibly about combat and fighting. You go gurl. Slay."

    In all seriousness, though, this is how they control the media. They use social outlets like Twitter to find like minded individuals to hire who'll be on their team and, therefore, write their propaganda - like if CNN put out a job listing for "democrats only." Social media has made it much easier to do what media outlets were doing on a smaller scale in the past: stack the deck with fellow ideologues.

    It's interesting that East Asian women are so much more represented in the SJW movement than East Asian men.

    Think of the personality traits that you associate with East Asian men. They're quiet, timid, socially isolationist, highly industrious, ruthlessly efficient, business-like, unemotional, stoic, conformist, miserly, and misanthropic. They leave you alone and want you to leave them alone. East Asian men are people who don't like to waste time and have minimal tolerance for bull5hit.

    Now imagine such a group of men interacting with the SJW movement. Now imagine that these men observe their women getting heavily into SJWism.

    I wonder what they think about it.

    If you want to see the typical East Asian male personality type, watch this. One of the girls tells him to "go back to Beijing."

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHhy2Gk_xik

    Can you imagine Mr. Miyagi becoming a SJW?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsVPrc9itYQ

    East Asian men are unadapted for the SJW niche.

    Wow. I’m almost Oriental. More importantly – reading your fair summary makes me realise the toxic soup of the Current Year is converging Europeans and Orientals, particularly the males. We used to be gregarious, now we are more isolationist and misanthropic. We used to be generous, willing to gladly help Joe and his family if they fell on hard luck; now we don’t much care to support Mohammed and his seven brats; Tyrone, who won’t get a job; or Xiopeng, who doesn’t even speak Engrish. (Hence the government replaces charity by stealing from us what we will no longer donate, then redistributing it to our enemies….)

    There’s an inversion at work, too: we used to be far more industrious; increasingly we are not because we are hip to the game’s being rigged against us (confiscatory taxes; actual racism and sexism denying hiring, promotions, and raises; prices constantly raising and wages constantly lowering via overpopulation; etc.).

    The NYT probably won’t have this problem because the only white men they hire are gay but it will be interesting to see how this will effect any potential discrimination / wrongful terminations lawsuits there going forward. Talk about a hostile work environment. It would seem that anybody white would be on solid ground if they wanted to shake down their employer. It really is time for the Nation to reconsider / sunset out the discrimination / affirmative action laws that were enshrined a generation or two ago. In the end we might end up thanking Sarah Jeong for the sparking the fire that burned down all of the affirmative discrimination laws like Rosa Parks in reverse.

    The right bears some of the blame for the degradation of public discourse that Jeong represents.

    Oh come on. Leftist racism and thought policing manifests in mainstream professional norms and militantly enforced laws. What legal decision exists to gratify a right wing talking point the same way actual judges are taking Tiki Nazis and Electronic Russians completely seriously? What you're trying to torture into a counterpart is inescapably smaller, weaker, and later, and happened in reaction to them. Everything we talk about is lunatic virulent violence-causing conspiracy theory while the mainstream media is still babbling in total seriousness about Trump the Russian. The knockout game was them trying (and often succeeding) to kill us and BLM was them trying (and often succeeding) to kill cops or effect a drawdown in policing. There's no parallel.
    Furthermore, if we decide to try to be nice, what benefit could we possibly expect from people who think we are cave-dwelling goblins?

    Furthermore, if we decide to try to be nice, what benefit could we possibly expect from people who think we are cave-dwelling goblins?

    While not explicit, the LOTR movies had to make their goblins (Orcs) whiter and more suburbanite as the movies progressed. Presumably not to offend people like Jeong. Azog was made to look like Goering and Bolg was his surfer dude son. There can be little doubt who the original Middle Earth ethnicities where derived from.

    Ironically, historically in Wagnerian Operas and the Sagas, it was the (((Dwarfs))) who lived underground, were short, had ugly hook nosed faces, and loved gold. East Asians really did not even figure into the tale at all. Perhaps that is what most infuriates Jeong the most. It is a metaphor for the rest of her recently arrived clan who in spite of their financial success have zero cultural impact or influence. No one wants to be Asian, most of all her. They spend all of their attention trying to be something they can never really be with the most they can hope for is to screw things up for the ones they are envious of which perfectly explains her hatred. It also explains the behavior of some of the other tribes in the movie also.

    That's a bit overbroad. But there's definitely something happening, along the lines of that East Asian phenomenon observed to be hyper-conformity, when subjects to that phenomenon find themselves in the wild west and come to one of two conclusions: there are no rules, or, these ghosts are giving me mixed messages about what I'm supposed to do. Crudely, in East Asian society, you get an invisible (and without appeal) cheat sheet, and in the US you don't get that but at the same time people get mad when you cross boundaries you weren't warmed about. Picture a German-Swiss accountant at a party in Cabiria. This is like the other Asian journalist Steve recently linked saying that she felt clearly instructed to do this but not supported afterward.

  158. Off topic, but very much related. Chinese Canadians in Markham, a predominantly wealthy Chinese suburb of Toronto, were protesting the mayor’s (a White man) invitation for hundreds of illegal migrants to be rehoused there to take the pressure off Toronto. The protesters were met by counter protesters, also Chinese, a small melee broke out as a result. It would appear the Liberal’s coalition of visible minorities and immigrants is beginning to fray. The media has covered up the fact that the protesters were mostly Chinese.

    Dearest commenters on iSteve, especially Reg Caesar, tyrone, J. Ross and Sam Malone, let me make known the following facts in this honorable and most interesting public sphere:

    Nobody on the internet at least, shows any proof (or reference) that the imagination I happened to write down (or created while playing with snakes in order to visualise those two words vicious circle I had used before) ahh: - : - - nobody seems to claim, that there are more than two snakes eating up one another at the same time, but that was what I have written about.

    Two snakes eating up on another - that's happening at times.

    One snake eating up itself is well known since ages and mentioned in all kinds of myths and tales.The greek called it oroboros and such an oroboros might well be depicted in the ancient etching Reg Ceasar, that you show in your - very kind indeed (and thought provoking!) - answer to my post.

    As it seems, I have been intertwining two old symbols or thought-pictures (Walther Benjamin), namely that of the oroboros and that of the rat king. I might have done well in mixing up the oroboros with the rat king, because not only are both highly sexually charged, as are the fake interventions of those truly capitalist asian girls and their false accusations of rape (= their rape fantasies), but: The rat king is even known to symbolize people, who try to "live off other persons" (cf. the wikipedia-quote below) - and that too quite obviously is at stake here with Sarah Jeong & Co.

    (Btw.: I have seen (and read in) an exemplar of Conrad Gesner's "Historia animalum" on wednesday this week, and it turns out that Gesner's book from the 16th century is mentioned in the wikipedia-article as a reference for the rat king - my mind leaps at times (cf. Jumpin' Jack Flash ).
    Next thing: I misspelled the word whether - and therefor mentioned a castrated male sheep or goat, as Reg Caesar points out.

    Now combine those four things: 1) The Oroboros, 2) the multitude of snakes being entangled because they are all eating themselves up, and 3) the rat king, and 4) the wether. If one combines these four things, one might find, that that's quite a tool-box in order to understand what's going on with the sexually loaded accusations of these career-oriented young asian young women as Sarah Jeong. - The last question that needs to be solved now is the following: Just whom the wether in my musings about these young and sharp minded ladies might stand for?
    Hint: Could it refer to some sort of highly cicilized men in a rich and mighty nation?

    (I do state not for the first time, but for maybe the hundredth time in my writing live, that the expression Freudian slip is usually understood as equalling a falsehood - but that's not all that there is about the Freudin slip, especilly the occurance of intertwtined mental pictures and half-intentionally misspelled words and all that: It has a quite positive and productive side to it: It can clarify things (the wikipedia article about the oroboros ends with Kékule`s vision, which helped him to write down the structure of benzene: "(...) long rows, sometimes more closely fitted together; all twining and twisting in snake-like motion. But look! What was that? One of the snakes had seized hold of its own tail, and the form whirled mockingly before my eyes. As if by a flash of lightning I awoke; and this time also I spent the rest of the night in working out the consequences of the hypothesis." So - maybe it's time to add the Kiefian rightly actions or functions to the Freudian faulty actions or functions as a result of a Freudian slip.

    wikipedia about the rat king:
    The original German term, Rattenkönig, was calqued into English as rat king, and into French as roi des rats. The term was not originally used in reference to actual rats, but for persons who lived off others. Conrad Gesner in Historia animalium (1551–58) stated: "Some would have it that the rat waxes mighty in its old age and is fed by its young: this is called the rat king." Martin Luther stated: "finally, there is the Pope, the king of rats right at the top." Later, the term referred to a king sitting on a throne of knotted tails.[2]

    I knew a Thai guy named Kitti. I sure hope there isn’t a feminine equivalent of “Kittiporn”.

    But if there were, Bangkok would be the first place to look, wouldn’t it?

    I didn't say I could name any. But is my claim so hard to believe? Or do you think Jeong is as good as it gets for the colored female left?

    I can’t name any either, and I can’t say your claim is hard or easy to believe. I have a feeling that the most talented nonwhite women tend to go into careers other than journalism, since the most talented nonwhite women are good enough at something that they don’t feel the need to write about how the world is keeping them down. And a nonwhite woman who doesn’t traffic in identity politics isn’t going to give the Times readership its daily dose of mental hairshirt donning.

    If there's a parallel to our current crop of SJWs, it's the Cultural Revolution in China that started in the late 1960s. The young commies, all a bunch of tools being manipulated by Mao and his wife, were let loose on anyone who didn't toe the line in an attempt to destroy Mao's enemies.

    Our current SJWers are trying to imitate this, and are mighty upset by Trump's plan to make them get a job, grow up and shut up, and become plain old bourgeois. The SJWer are clinging desperately to their adolescence before it dies in the face of reality. They'd slit their own throats before becoming responsible grownups.

    It isn't a matter of nice, but a worry the Trump and his crew turns off apoliticals, and also succumbs to the temptation of provoking the libs for fun in place of concrete good policy.

    Trump's failures to use his executive branch powers right away against DACA, TPS, and refugee programs were really disappointing for me. I wish he would have given us policy victories on immigration while combining them with much milder rhetoric.

    Second paragraph is gold but Trump’s manipulation of the MSM is far preferable to chasing phantom voters who are inhumanly pleased by patronizing. Apoliticals are not turned off by human speech, they’re turned off by normal politician behavior.

    Furthermore, if we decide to try to be nice, what benefit could we possibly expect from people who think we are cave-dwelling goblins?
     
    While not explicit, the LOTR movies had to make their goblins (Orcs) whiter and more suburbanite as the movies progressed. Presumably not to offend people like Jeong. Azog was made to look like Goering and Bolg was his surfer dude son. There can be little doubt who the original Middle Earth ethnicities where derived from.

    Ironically, historically in Wagnerian Operas and the Sagas, it was the (((Dwarfs))) who lived underground, were short, had ugly hook nosed faces, and loved gold. East Asians really did not even figure into the tale at all. Perhaps that is what most infuriates Jeong the most. It is a metaphor for the rest of her recently arrived clan who in spite of their financial success have zero cultural impact or influence. No one wants to be Asian, most of all her. They spend all of their attention trying to be something they can never really be with the most they can hope for is to screw things up for the ones they are envious of which perfectly explains her hatred. It also explains the behavior of some of the other tribes in the movie also.

    No one wants to be Asian

    That’s a bit overbroad. But there’s definitely something happening, along the lines of that East Asian phenomenon observed to be hyper-conformity, when subjects to that phenomenon find themselves in the wild west and come to one of two conclusions: there are no rules, or, these ghosts are giving me mixed messages about what I’m supposed to do. Crudely, in East Asian society, you get an invisible (and without appeal) cheat sheet, and in the US you don’t get that but at the same time people get mad when you cross boundaries you weren’t warmed about. Picture a German-Swiss accountant at a party in Cabiria. This is like the other Asian journalist Steve recently linked saying that she felt clearly instructed to do this but not supported afterward.

    You actually make very good points. One of the difficulties that, say, a Japanese or a Korean immigrant has in the United States is that the social cues are much less pronounced here. In Japan or Korea, there is more structure to the society at large and a child is quickly acculturated to the social conventions of how one should behave or not.

    In the U.S. those social conventions are in a wild flux from region to region, from social class to class, from family to family, etc. So there tends to be a comedy of errors with East Asian immigrants. By the third generation, though, that tends to disappear almost completely. With the second generation, it tends to be more varied case by case, depending on family culture, etc.

    Koreans are pretty impressive. At various times, they have stalemated or driven out both Japanese and Chinese invasion forces. That Korea avoided incorporation into the Chinese empire, whose territory consists of longstanding independent kingdoms far more populous and wealthy than anything on the Korean peninsula, is a major feat combining political and military skill, aided by difficult terrain and sparse natural resources that led invaders to give up much sooner than they did for other objectives. The Chinese incorporated the Huns, the Mongols*, the Tibetans and the Manchurians, all formidable adversaries, into their empire. They failed** to add Korea to the realm.

    * Over 40% of Mongolia's traditional lands are occupied by China - the rest exists as an independent country only for as long as Russia is willing to nuke China over an invasion attempt.
    ** Ironically, the Sino-Japanese War of 1894 was fortuitous for Korean nationalists - without annexation by Japan, it is likely, in my view, that Korea would be a Chinese province just like Tibet today. It was through another lucky accident of history, WWII, that Korea regained its independence - free of both China and Japan.

    Koreans tend to take EVERYTHING to the next level. Perhaps you might have noticed that North Korea is more Stalinist than the USSR was under Stalin and South Korea is more capitalist than the USA. Korean Protestants and Catholics also tend to be more fervent than their non-Korean counterparts. For Koreans, it seems, anything worth doing is worth overdoing. In Sarah Jeong's case, it just happens to be racism.

    I admit that it's a small sample, but several sons of the Korean-American friends of my Korean-American wife also seem to have done quite badly with their Korean wives raised in this country. No pun intended, but our feminist culture seems to have badly disoriented them. I look at Sarah Jeong and I think of some of the real skin-deep beauties these guys, whose weddings I attended, ended up with. Then again, I suppose mothers-in-law complaining about daughters-in-law is a fairly universal phenomenon.

    Two Koreans, three churches. They are a cantankerous and quarrelsome people who are difficult to rule (by foreign overlords or by native elites) hence the moniker, the Irishmen of Asia. Of course, both the Irish and the Koreans have done well in the last few decades. I guess they have mellowed.

    White people are being massively hypocritical here.

    Jew creates anti-White regime
    Jew creates insufficiently pro-Yellow regime
    Yellow says this makes Whites hypocrites.

    Frankly, I don’t think Yellows have the balls to name the Jew.

    Which is pretty ironic when you think about it, because of all the East Asians, they have the least to be proud about.
     
    Koreans are pretty impressive. At various times, they have stalemated or driven out both Japanese and Chinese invasion forces. That Korea avoided incorporation into the Chinese empire, whose territory consists of longstanding independent kingdoms far more populous and wealthy than anything on the Korean peninsula, is a major feat combining political and military skill, aided by difficult terrain and sparse natural resources that led invaders to give up much sooner than they did for other objectives. The Chinese incorporated the Huns, the Mongols*, the Tibetans and the Manchurians, all formidable adversaries, into their empire. They failed** to add Korea to the realm.

    * Over 40% of Mongolia's traditional lands are occupied by China - the rest exists as an independent country only for as long as Russia is willing to nuke China over an invasion attempt.
    ** Ironically, the Sino-Japanese War of 1894 was fortuitous for Korean nationalists - without annexation by Japan, it is likely, in my view, that Korea would be a Chinese province just like Tibet today. It was through another lucky accident of history, WWII, that Korea regained its independence - free of both China and Japan.

    Two Koreans, three churches. They are a cantankerous and quarrelsome people who are difficult to rule (by foreign overlords or by native elites) hence the moniker, the Irishmen of Asia. Of course, both the Irish and the Koreans have done well in the last few decades. I guess they have mellowed.

    That "We gotta beat the Japanese (or the English, in the case of the Irish)!" chip on the shoulder is a powerful motivator.

    I wondered if Sarah Jeong was playing some sort of self-serving angle with the outlandish comments. I did not think it could land someone a job at the New York Times.

    Writing ‘#Black lives matter’ a hundred times landed an Indian kid a slot in Stanford. There are clear cut rewards for going along with the left in today’s America. There’s bound to be quite a bit of cognitive dissonance and self-hatred for whites who do. That’s why they so vigorously shut down any facts or discussion questioning the Narrative.

    For POC it’s pretty much all sunshine and apple pies.
