Reparations are a slippery slope.

Video Link

This video is available on Rumble, BitChute, and Odysee.

In April, I made a video called California Punches the Tar Baby.

It was about the state of California’s task force that’s trying to decide how much in reparations the state should pay for all the bad things California did to black people. The state is now covered with tar.

The task force was supposed to be “drawn from diverse backgrounds,” but it’s not diverse. Eight of the nine members are black, with one Asian.

But they have been busy. In June, they issued a 500-page interim report. Please note the chain link, which appears at the top of every page — a reminder of slavery.

The report uses the words “slave,” “slavery,” or “enslave” 2,116 times, which is odd because California wasn’t a slave state, and there were practically no blacks living there when it joined the Union 1850.

I didn’t read the whole report, but I looked at the pictures. Here’s the very first one: It explains that 12 of the first 21 US Presidents owned slaves. They’re colored red.

The report also has this famous photo of the scarred back of a slave.

I suppose this is why this is the first government report I ever saw that comes with a “graphic content warning.”

Why all this talk of slavery that never happened in California? The best I can make out, we have to shudder at the horrors of slavery in order to grasp the report’s basic logic: find any difference between black and white outcomes in California, blame it on white people and slavery, and add it to the bill.

Here are examples the report found important enough to highlight. “In 2019, white households owned nine times more assets than Black households.”

Note the reverential capitalization of black and lower-case for white. “Compared to white Californian men, Black Californian men are five times more likely to die from prostate cancer.”

“Compared to white children in California, Black children are three times more likely to spend time in foster care or experience a termination in parental rights.”

This is all our fault.

I just skipped around in the text, but it’s lurid: We have a “healthcare system that destroys Black health through overt and covert discrimination by medical providers, public policies that neglect African Americans’ health needs, hospital systems that continue to be segregated, medical schools that systematically exclude African Americans, and a health insurance system designed to be inaccessible to poor African Americans.”

Every single idea in that sentence is wrong.

Another example: Black women are twice as likely as white women to be murdered by their husbands, and four times as likely to be murdered by a live-in boyfriend. But that’s only because black men take out the frustrations of racism on black women. And the women dare not call 911 because “There’s a genuine and legitimate fear that if they call the police, their partner could be killed or they, as the survivor, could be killed.”

I suppose they actually believe that.

The task force finds racism in places you wouldn’t think to look. There are sections on “Racist Censorship,” “Pathologizing Black Families,” “Discrimination Against Black Athletes,” “Deprivation of Intellectual Property,” “Restraints on Black Leisure,” “Discrimination Against Black Artists,” “Mental and Physical Harm and Neglect,” and on and on and on and on.

All of this goes into the bill, and every eligible black Californian should get the following amounts in the following five categories: Housing discrimination and houselessness, Mass incarceration and overpolicing, Health harms, Unjust property takings, and Devaluation of black businesses. As you can see, the task force hasn’t yet worked out the bill for the last two vague categories, but the total for the other three is $475,133 per black person.

That already sporty figure will only grow. If each California black collected, say, half a million, they would all, at a stroke, be worth more than 2-1/2 times the median white household net worth of $188,000. A family of four would be sitting on $2 million.

I promise you, this won’t happen. There are 2-1/4 million black people in California, so if they all collected half a million that would cost 1 trillion 125 billion dollars.

That is more than five times the annual budget of California.

So all this is not just folly — it’s absurd, insane folly, and a mind-boggling waste of time.

But the California task force is enjoying itself so much, it has spent months boondoggling around the state, asking black people what they want. The latest hearing was in Oakland. Only about 50 people showed up, but they weren’t shy.

Max Fennel, on the left, wanted 15 to 20 acres of land in addition to the cash. “We’re not asking,” he told the task force, “we’re telling you.”

Deon Jenkins, a “grassroots hip hop organizer for reparations,” explained that the check should cover the average California house price, or $800,000.

He explained to the San Francisco public radio station what happens if California doesn’t pay up. [[0:04 – 0:10]]

A woman by the name of Carol Williams insisted that the handouts be tax free so “the IRS won’t come after us.”

There has not been complete unity. A black actor named Faizon Love says black people shouldn’t get fat checks because they’ll just blow the money on fancy cars.

Instead, he says blacks should be exempted from all taxes for the rest of their lives.

The hearings roadshow goes next to San Diego and Sacramento. These sessions are important. As the chairman of the task force Kamilah Moore explains, “It is important to get this right because we are setting the precedent for other states and localities, and also for the federal government as well.”

Good luck, Kamilah.

You see, the real problem is that when Kamilah presents the final invoice for the sins of California’s white people, the state legislature will have to vote on whether black people get anything at all. That could get messy.

Whites — the villains of the piece — are only 35 percent of the population. When it finally dawns on Asians and Hispanics, who are 55 percent, just how brazenly they are being fleeced, I predict a tremendous fight in the legislature.

Or do I? There have already been certifiably crazy reparations in California. You probably missed this story from last summer: “Bruce’s Beach, seized by LA in 1924, returned to black family’s descendants.”

You will read in that article and in plenty of similar stories like this one from National Geographic, that back in 1924, the California city of Manhattan Beach stole the beach-front property of a black entrepreneur and drove him out of town.

So last year, Governor Gavin Newsome himself went to Manhattan Beach and signed a bill to reverse this outrage, return the land to black descendants of the owner, and pay them rent of $413,000 a year in perpetuity.

This is mouth-watering stuff for reparationists.

What’s the real story? The Bruce family bought two beachfront lots in 1912 for $1,225, and built a clubhouse for blacks, which you can see in the background.

Other blacks bought three lots nearby. In 1924, Manhattan Beach took that land though eminent domain to build a park. The Bruce family got $14,500 for their two lots — nearly 12 times what they paid for them — because of the improvements.

The city didn’t take just the land blacks owned. It took 30 lots for the park, 25 of them owned by whites. They had to clear out, too, just like the Bruces. The other black owners bought other properties in Manhattan Beach, but the Bruces left town. As this lonely little dissenting article asks, “Should white families who owned 25 of the 30 Bruce’s Beach lots in Manhattan Beach also receive reparation?”

Nobody was asking awkward questions when Governor Gavin signed the law to reverse a legal act of eminent domain.

Nobody asked awkward questions at the State House either; the bill passed without a single dissenting vote.

So, as I said, California keeps slugging that tar baby. The reparationists have until June 30 to present their grand-total final bill. How sweet will the kitty be? How many black people will move to California so they can cash in? Will racist Asians and Hispanics squawk and refuse to pony up? It’ll be a hot summer in California. I can hardly wait.

  1. The state will use county tax code to forcefully collet reparations for blacks via sales tax, property tax and income tax, and the only way to not pay for slavery shakedowns is by moving out of state to a place that is a slave free reparations zone.
    Yet for most all blacks, this still will not be enough as they continue to ‘Snatch N Grab Loot’n and follow home shoot’n and rob, carjack, shakedown……..until the whites all leave and these states turn into lawless African shanty towns.

  2. That famous photo of a slave with a scarred back (the only one ever taken, to my knowledge) was widely reproduced as a carte de visite which was sold to raise funds for freedmen during the War for the Union. Less well known is the contemporary fundraising series of CDVs of “the White Slaves of Louisiana” depicting little girls and boys who for all appearances were fair-haired whites. But they were classified as property, rather than people, under the ancient “blood taint” dogma of the slave masters. Mark Twain would masterfully lampoon this absurdity in his novel Pudd’nhead Wilson. Today both wokers and Confederate apologists denounce these images, interestingly enough, because these simple, human testaments cannot be made to fit into either of their extremist revisionist ideologies.

    The debt which today’s racial reparationists allege is due to them from white America was paid in full, in blood and suffering, long before any of us was born. Over three hundred thousand white United States soldiers, sailors, and Marines gave their lives in the war to crush the southern white separatist insurrection. For the great majority, it was not their purpose to end slavery, but the end of slavery was made possible by, and is the direct result of, their sacrifices.

  3. Imagine the following: You might as well beat me up and steal $100 out of my wallet because some guy in another town mugged you of $100. This gets even more ludicrous if you say I owe you because my distant ancestor wronged your distant ancestor. That’s a blood feud, pure and simple.

    If the current CA effort does any good, it’s to support accelerationism: the sooner this insanity ends, the better. They’re going to ban all fossil fueled vehicles in just a few years, obtain all their electric from wind and sun etc. The only question is how long will it go on, and what the ultimate damages will total.

    I’ll repeat the very shrewd suggestion that one of Steve Sailer’s commenters had made when when this issue had first come up earlier this year:

    Once all 45 million blacks arrive in California to collect their combined $15 trillion in reparations, the other 49 states should immediately secede from the Union, thus sticking California with the USA’s $30 trillion national debt, and then build a wall around California, which Mexico would gladly pay for.

    Another divide et impera stunt by ignoramuses. No one in government has lifted a finger to comply with CERD, the supreme law of the land on the topic. The treaty body wants a plan, not ruinous and divisive reparations. Their only prior mention of reparations was for indigenous victims of wifebeaters.

    And CERD gives you remedies for Jew supremacists too.

    If these shitheads followed the law on reparations we’d all get them, funded by liquidation of the government’s metastasizing repression/aggression apparat and antitrust penalties on low-hanging kleptocrats like Bezos and the beltway bandits.

    There was no ‘insurrection’. The South wanted to secede, which, if the US govt. had any semblance of believing in govt. by the consent of the governed, should have been accepted. Instead the US govt. declared war on the South. Consent of the governed became meaningless, as also did ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’, as the North instituted the draft giving it ultimate power over men’s lives. The whole notion of US ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’ has been a farce from that time on.

    (1) Anyone receiving reparations should be required to leave the country, as this is obviously a horrible country for a minority to live in, and

    (2) Permanently renounce their U.S. citizenship.

  19. Before blacks met whites, they had mud huts, bongo drums, no wheels, no written language, no nothing.

    So, even if they got less than whites in the US, they got a lot more than before they came in contact with whites.

    Also, blacks need to pay reparations for looting, beating, rape, murder, and destroying property value all around.

    We demand 1 trillion for what they did to Detroit, Gary, and Baltimore.

    Pony up, crazy Negroes.

    The North didn’t have slavery, but blacks destroyed towns up north as in the South.

    Also, Jews need to pay reparations to Russians for communism. I say around 10 trillion.

    I have a better idea. The other 49 states need to start planting explosives along the entire length of the San Andreas fault line, and once all 45 million reparations hungry Wakandans have arrived in California, hit the switch and cause a major earthquake that results in California breaking off of the North American continent and floating out into the Pacific Ocean.

    Imagine what the incredible advantages would be if we pursued this idea? We’d get rid of the world’s biggest purveyors of anti-white brainwashing and sexual degeneracy (Hollywood), plus it would be like taking a powerful laxative and having a massive bowel movement that would purge America of most of those self-hating, self-loathing, white liberal actors and actresses and as a huge bonus, the blacks who all of those white liberals claim to love so much would now be super rich and able to graduate from smoking crack cocaine to being able to afford the expensive nose candy variety.

    And, these blacks would have their own ‘island’ nation which they could rename as Wakanda.

    Correct. Also, fewer than 40 years after conquering the Confederacy and fewer than 30 years after the end of Reconstruction, the U.S.A. provided military support to Panama during its secession from Colombia, blocking the Colombian Navy’s ability to restore order in Panama and motivated by the desire to finish building the French-initiated Canal.

    BTW, Panama had voluntarily joined Gran Colombia shortly after both it and Gran Colombia gained independence. Thus, in relation to separation from the larger entity, the case of Panama is an exact parallel to that of the Southern States. Except for whether the Federal government gained economically from the secession.

  25. Negroes can be exhausting, what with their hyper violent crime, their moronic rap “music”, and their endless demands for the property of others.

    But it’s important to sometimes appreciate how entertaining they can be. Here’s an article that had me LOL’ing many times. It describes how negroes in the Oakland CA area have formed a club that consumes psychedelic mushrooms together and gathers in the forest, in order to find relief from racism. Many great insights in the article, including:

    “Psilocybin just kind of gives you that chance to not think about the world pressures because racism is, even though it’s like that invisible monster, it’s still there. Even if you don’t feel it on a day to day basis, you could be having a wonderful day frolicking and then another Black man gets shot. It’s like, that could have been me,”

    Maybe in addition to generous reparations, each negro should be dosed daily with hallucinogens.

    Mr. Unz, another commenter had an even better idea: Since these payments would entail profiting from slavery, they would be illegal.

  28. Tom Welsh says:

    “Eight of the nine members are black, with one Asian”.

    And there YOU are, covered with tar already. Looking at the photographs, it is obvious that “black” in this sense means “not pristine white” – or rather pinkish/brown.

    Mr Obama is apparently “black”, although his mother was white and his father black.

    Nowadays it can be a good thing to be “black”, so many people push their claims to be part of such a victimised minority.

    But the idea that anyone who is, say, one sixty-fourth black is “black” dates from the days of slavery, when being “black” was bad and meant you were a member of a permanently lower class – or even biologically inferior. They even had an elaborate set of names – like “mulatto” or “quadroon” denoting how much “black blood” a person had. Like the Nazis, respectable Americans deemed any noticeable trace of “blackness” an irredeemable sin. (Although, to be fair, the Americans and British held those views long before the Nazi party was founded).

    The colour of one’s skin is perhaps interesting and may provide clues to other aspects of one’s genetic heritage. Otherwise, it has purely political significance. One might just as well call Mr Obama white because he is half white.

  29. P.T. says:

    The blacks should be billed for the cost of putting them behind bars for their criminal behavior. The expense is not insignificant. The blacks have cost Whites a lot of money.

    The blacks should understand that we are not asking them to pay up. We are telling them.

  30. Most Americans, and I would have to include Jared Taylor himself in this, are Protestant or Protestant-influenced kikesuckers. Indeed, the American civic religion has made kikesucking, along with negrophilia, into a virtue. As long as Americans allow (((their worst enemies))) to rule over them, they objectively deserve to pay “reparations”, and worse. If you make yourself into a door mat, you have no cause for complaint when others smear shit from the soles of their boots onto you.

    Decades ago, I proposed a solution to many problems in the US. It would correct issues surrounding poverty, crime, education/ignorance, abortion, the environment, resources, and more.

    The solution? Pay to any person of reproduction age a lump sum (say around $20k right now) to undergo free sterilization. Completely voluntary.

    Use the money saved on welfare payments, incarceration, social services, education, etc to subsidize two-parent families for as long as they stay together, produce, and rear children to adulthood.

    Nevertheless, where the slave trade was concerned, everyone, from the African chiefs to the Arabs to the Jews to the white AND black slave owners got into the game. Shit, even Kamala came from a slave owning family. Will she and her Jewish husband be called to pay a percentage of their wealth for reparations ? Hardly likely. Will Obama, a half Nigger pay 50% ? Profound questions indeed.

    I on the other hand have a “final solution” to the Dindoo Problem. To avoid complicated classifications (eg immigrants from Africa after the abolition of the slave trade vs descendants of slaves) all Niggas will be deported back to Africa.

    The average salary in Africa is $10,000 per annum. Therefore every Bantu (man woman and child) will be given $50,000 each representing 5 years income with which to get established. They can supplement their income there by working or crime. The progrom will include Da Gangstas presently relaxing in prison, black politicians and race hustlers all of whom are useless trash.

    However, their US citizenship will be revoked ! ALL immigration to the US will be permanently terminated. This would represent major savings to the US taxpayer given the present cost of maintaining these parasites.

    Problem solved and we make a clean sweep of these cockroaches !

    You may be right on one, narrow, shallow, specious, principle, however what exactly was the US national security crisis in 1860? One of Lincoln’s political posits that launched his campaign to the presidency, ‘Capital could not exist if not for Labor, therefore Labor is superior to capital’. The Civil War exposed the war between the slave labor, usurious, debt based, profitable, Opium trade, Imperial system and the energetic, Brains and Creativity, inducing innovative combinations of action, always increasing the productive powers of Labor, American system of political economy. ( Henry Carey ) The Civil War was as much a war for American workers who hated slavery; workers wanted rights, money for labor, and as Lincoln informed his constituency, the ability to elevate oneself in America.

    Slavery, in a truly constitutional, ‘for the People’, nation-state, had to be abolished. At that time, at least three European powers were vying for a piece of North America hoping to exploit the Secession. Under British supervision, Maximilian I was in installed as emperor of Mexico and French troops were already in Mexico. The British were claiming the royal prerogative, supreme and unquestionable, governance over the seas and manufactured blockade runners for the Confederacy.

    Lord Palmerston’s Zoo, an international network of specialists in installing covert, ‘fifth column’, for offensive warfare, government destabilization, black operations, spies, and anarchists, maintained an office in British Canada planned Lincoln’s assassination. The British supported and funded the Confederate’s spy cabal in Canada, who deployed John Wilkes Booth and others for that mission. (Webster Tarpley) What if the United States all of a sudden became balkanized, divvied up between, Great Britain, France, and Spain. Why can’t the Confederates, to this day, see the bigger picture? Secession threatened the American people’s promise, ‘manifest destiny’, the American standard of living, and eventual Super Power status. President Lincoln, in distributing the Greenback, reestablished the United States, funded the Continental railroad, and propelled America into the Bonanza economy, that unfortunately kept the British in our business, through finance, infiltration of the yellow press, political and government organs, that could coopt America’s interests.

    Russia and Germany assisted the Union and the British Empire, imho, never forgot their meddling; the 20th Century begins with the organization of the modern fiat money system, the US Federal Reserve Bank system, the order and organization of WWI and WWII to destroy both Germany and Russia because Germany was a rival to the British Imperial system. The British left us with the WWI system’s legacy; Russia is out, Germany is down and the US is in.

    78% of pro athletes go broke within 3 years of leaving the sport, according to the article. Another article estimates that 65% of nba players are broke within 5 years of leaving the league.

    Why stop in California, give all 41 million blacks in the US $500,000, put it in a trust and divy it out monthly over 30 years so they dont blow the entire $500,000 in 3 months on 40s, newports, spinning rims and crack. $16,000 per year per black. $656 billion a year for the country. Blacks get 1/2 the $1 trillion spent annually on social safety benefits, so nearly a breakeven.

    A black family of 4 would get $64,000/year. Now let them buy their own food, healthcare, rent, utilities, and see how good an average cracker family really has it.

    “That famous photo of a slave with a scarred back (the only one ever taken, to my knowledge) was widely reproduced”

    A century of jewish indoctrination has compelled us to condemn slavery as humanity’s second greatest evil (after the holohoax, of course). But read any of the several “Slave Narratives: a Folk History of Slavery in the United States From Interviews with Former Slaves,” free on Kindle, and you’ll discover most slaves eagerly preferred their former lives on the plantation to their later lives as free people.

    I recall one especially poignant interview with a slave who was delighted to be absconded to America, since he was literally scheduled to be eaten by cannibals in his native African land.

    It would make as much sense for a slaveholder to beat his valuable property as it would to smash your car into a tree. Unfortunately, the prevailing narrative is now so ingrained in our Black Privilege culture that truth no longer matters.

    Glad that someone here gets it.

    For a detailed exposition of Britain’s and France’s interest in the American South, please read Sven Berkert, The Cotton Empire : A Global History. Britain’s industrial revolution, spearheaded by the textile industry in Lancashire and Cheshire—and the spectacular fortunes and accumulation of capital that drove subsequent phases of industrialization and economic development—were entirely dependent on slave labor in the American South to produce the needed raw material.

    Britain’s manufacturers were very invested in keeping the South underdeveloped. That is, keeping the South in a state of underdevelopment comparable to that to which it/the British East India Company had reduced India over the previous two centuries.

    Industrial development, new inventions in the field of cotton manufacture, is what drove the rocketing production capacity, the rocketing demand for cotton textiles, the rocketing demand for raw cotton, and hence the rocketing demand for slaves from Africa.

    An aspect of the development of the global cotton trade that I had not seen mentioned elsewhere is that Africa was a primary market (ca. 50%) for the cottons that first came from India (via British traders) and then came from English cotton mills. That is, Africans traded slaves for manufactured cotton. The African market and, later, slave plantations in the Americas, were prime markets for finished cotton yardage made by the cotton grown by slave labor on plantations in the Americas.

    It must also be constantly borne in mind that the slave trade in Africans was a relatively new development in the history of slavery. There is a lot to be said about this, but my main point concerns British interests in maintaining and controlling the Confederacy and expanding cotton production and hence also slavery in North America (in fact, anywhere where cotton could be grown, which includes areas of South America).

  121. The Unbearable Incoherence of California Dreaming

    The schizophrenia in Sacramento is beyond belief. Our state’s radical new mandates are a train wreck of contradictions.

    Like toddlers, politicians will demand anything they want, regardless of reality, the laws of economics, or geography. This is the recipe the guys in the high chair want now:

    Increased housing density
    Increased illegal immigration
    Increased costs of doing business
    Increased welfare payments

    Do these things even go together? The politicians obviously think it will get them elected again.

    True, increased density would make room for more illegals. But California lost half a million population in the last couple years. What dictates us to turn our best neighborhoods into refugee camps?

    Established citizens, workers and taxpayers, fled the state’s high cost of living twice as fast as illegals moved in. Who will be left to pay the social costs of millions of unskilled newcomers? Can we sustain our quality of living when half the population is on some kind of assistance?

    California came endowed with just one main asset: its picture-perfect climate. It lacks mineral resources, aside from farmland. It lacks manufacturing. Its southern half is a drought-thirsty semi-desert. Yet its climate attracted highly qualified people, who built the once sleepy state into a world-class high tech center.

    With Lake Mead drying up, the logical policy is to keep population in line with the water supply. To be selective about immigration, welcoming those who can contribute to the state’s strength in technology, who can afford the high cost of scarce real estate.

    California’s highest, best use, thanks to its geography, is to be a very wealthy and exclusive place to live. Only about 1% of the world’s land has our ideal climate (the warm summer Mediterranean climate). We need to claim that destiny to make it ours, and not take it for granted.

    The weather is the same in San Diego and in Tijuana, but the quality of living is still worlds apart, thanks to human capital. If we don’t work to preserve that special quality, we could lose the California dream that was the Golden State.

    Of course, a shortage of politicians with common sense is not unique to California. The Fed kept interest rates at a historical low at the same time Congress was showering us with stimulus checks. Then Washington acts surprised that inflation shot up, and proceeds to kill what’s left of the economy. Can you think of a single American politician who has shown any grasp of macroeconomics? And they are the ones running – and ruining – the economy.

    America’s problem is hubris. Our so-called leaders think we can do anything, pay for anything, legislate anything.

    Presumably such a loan program would be operated through the usual mortgage lenders, requiring a decent credit rating, earnings, and debt to income ratio. It wouldn’t be a blanket program for everyone like this reparations boondoggle, and would cost only a tiny fraction as much, with greater long term benefits.

    If the state wants to help blacks. why not do it with low interest, low down payment home mortgages for black families. Sort of like the VA. Why not try a thoughtful solution instead of always throwing trainloads of money at problems.

    Habitat for Humanity provided low to no interest loans plus helping to fix up the house and it didn’t work most of the time. Making flexible and affordable mortgage payments is harder than eviction threats for not paying rent.

    … at the expense of White people who don’t get them.

    … requiring a decent credit rating, earnings, and debt to income ratio.

    Hahahaaa… if they had that, they’d already be making out OK. Black people, even the most hardworking of them, are REALLY, REALLY BAD at handling money.

    Nof offense intended, CC, but fuck that! It’s been 60 years of this. How long will you keep banging your head against the wall.

    Give them each 10k and and a carton of Newports to return to Africa. I bet we could get ride of a quarter of them that way.

    Utilize cruise ships with no amenities such as gambling and liquor. Free menthol cigarettes are OK as well. Have plenty of fried chicken available. If full amenities were included, the $10K would be gone before they reached their African destination.
    Of course, they would have to be “chipped” and “bar-coded” to prevent them from sneaking back into the USA.
    After each trip the ship would have to be fumigated and undergo a major cleaning.
    One can only hope…

    Martin Luther was, in modern parlance, an anti-Semite; modern Americans Protestants are most certainly not. Protestants used to fret about the Catholic Church seeking to impose its will on secular governments, and that was true, or at least used to be. By contrast, Protestantism, at least since Luther’s initial paroxysm of passion, has always cottoned to the rulers and adjusted its tenets accordingly. Indeed, that was why so many European rulers, not least of which Henry VIII, welcomed the “Reformation”. The US regime, having been captured by Jewish money and power, is obsequiously philo-Semitic, and consequently so are mainstream Protestants. Your denying it in your conspicuously unintelligent post does not negate the facts.

    Protestantism established the concept of jewish supremacy over Christianity and was a major mistake Protestant leaders made that we are paying for to this day.
    Relying on the Biblical “Old Testament” for reference cemented the jews as being our supremacist “elder brothers”, Christianity being subordinated to judaism. The “god” of judaism is a vengeful “god” frequently being required to exact punishment to keep “his people” (jews) in line.


    Contrast that with the welcoming God of Christianity that understands that humans are imperfect, sinners, but have the ability and desire to achieve redemption and salvation.
    Christianity went off the rails when it did not divorce the Old Testament from the “new covenant” in the New Testament.
    Even Martin Luther spoke out on the jews as being Christianity’s mortal enemy who would do anything to suborn Christianity.
    “Sola Scriptura” is a flawed concept claiming that the Bible is the “inspired word of God” despite being written, translated and retranslated by MEN with their own political and social agendas. A good example is the “rights of kings and nobles” in which Christians are commanded to follow the dictates of their leaders. Ever hear of “prima noctus”? Under the King James Version of the Bible, Christians would be commanded to follow such a vile practice.
    It is Roman Catholicism that established the world’s modern-day universities, hospitals, and human care organizations, NOT Protestants.
    You see, Protestants differ from Catholics as they do not believe that temporal “good works” have any bearing on salvation–a major fault. Even if “good works” do not have spiritual necessity, they can’t hurt and can make the world a better place.
    Since “good works”are not necessary for salvation, a Protestant can be a ne-er-do-well person who has grievously sinned and abused others all of his life, and then on his deathbed profess his belief in Jesus Christ and will automatically be “saved”. I have a problem with that…
    Let’s move on to usury. Banned by the Catholic Church, Protestants cheerfully accepted usury as it was a vehicle for commerce which enabled the success of the jews as well.
    In the days of the “robber barons”, the united States of America was largely successful due to the Protestant (lack of) ethics, most builders of industry raking in millions in profits while ignoring the basic needs of those who made their success possible by their hard work. It was common to see these Protestant “captains of industry” do their damnedest to pay their employees as little as possible while raking in massive profits benefiting only themselves.
    Protestants still consider anyone who cannot be successful in business as suffering from a moral failing of their own doing, not due to outside circumstances, a jewish concept.
    Catholic doctrine requires business owners to pay their workers fairly–not below subsistence wages. It is a sin not to do so. There is no comparable demand in Protestantism.
    These Protestant “captains of industry” attempted to redeem themselves by establishing “foundations” (which guarded their wealth, making it tax exempt) and indirectly countering their own Protestant belief that “good works” were not necessary for salvation.
    They always pleaded poverty to their employees while living grand lives themselves.
    This contributed to the rise of labor unions, which at first, were brutally suppressed.
    There were exceptions, such as Henry Ford, who almost single-handedly created the middle class by paying his employees well above “market wages” of the day. His $5.00 per day wage was not entirely altruistic as it was also instituted to stem “turnover” as assembly line work was monotonous, but his writings have stated that one of his objectives was to make it possible for workers to “enjoy the fruits of their labor” along with the 8-hour workday and 40-hour workweek.
    The Protestant Reformation resulted in the legalization of usury, the establishment of the debt based financial system and central banks which has enabled the usurers to accumulate so much wealth and power that they can impose their NWO.
    The Reformation resulted in cartel capitalism, communism, socialism, fascism, two world wars which resulted in the decimation of the European peoples by the jews and WASPS acting as muscle for the bankers, and various genocides and the dystopian difficulties that are a part of modern civilization.
    That being said, Catholics are not “off the hook” either. The sale of indulgences (a supposed “fast track” to salvation) was an egregious disgusting abuse of power. A sad fact is that “indulgences” in the Catholic Church still exist today. As divorce is prohibited by the Catholic Church, indulgences are used by Catholic clergy to declare annulment, that “a valid marriage never existed” between a Catholic couple, even if those who seek annulment have been married for decades. The larger the “contribution”, the faster the decision on annulment.
    The “Vatican II Ecumenical Council” was a power grab by jews and Protestants which was largely successful in crippling the Catholic Church. Fortunately, there are Catholic sects that subscribe to pre-Vatican II principles, despite attempts by the “Novus Ordo” Church to wipe them out.
    Protestants are good people who have brought much good to civilization. However, Protestant acceptance of and deference to jewish control has done much to damage our civilization.
    I welcome intelligent discourse on this subject.

    I am definitely no Protestant and I agree with most of what you say, but for the sake of justice and historical accuracy, Martin Luther was no friend to Jews. His mature position on Christkillers came down to the following proposals:

    (1) burn their schools and synagogues; (2) transfer Jews to community settlements; (3) confiscate all Jewish literature, which was blasphemous; (4) prohibit rabbis to teach, on pain of death; (5) deny Jews safe-conduct, so as to prevent the spread of Judaism; (6) appropriate their wealth and use it to support converts and to prevent the lewd practice of usury; (7) assign Jews to manual labor as a form of penance.

    The kikesucking blasphemy, which consists of praising and even worshiping the worst enemies of Christ and Christians, is more of an American phenomenon than a Protestant one. And because of US influence it has spread to other countries. For instance, Jair Bolsonaro, the recently ousted former president of Brazil, who is officially Catholic but influenced by his “Evangelical” wife and others of the same ilk, is a kikesucker. If it had been up to him, Bolsonaro would have alienated the entirety of the Muslim world, with which Brazil does a huge amount of profitable trade, in order to suck up to Israel by moving the embassy to Jerusalem. Fortunately, saner voices stopped him.

    Make sure you have enough money to bribe the jews. Or, do you seriously believe they are going to let you do that FOR FREE??!!
