Kurt Vonnegut’s 1961 dystopian short story “Harrison Bergeron” describes a 2081 America in which the 211th, 212th, and 213th amendments to the Constitution of the United States have together mandated that all Americans must be made completely equal. No one is allowed to be more intelligent or handsome or more physically capable than anyone else. The standards are enforced by a Handicapper General, an elderly woman named Diana Moon Glampers armed with a shotgun, who mandates the wearing of disfiguring masks for those who are thought to be too beautiful while tiny radios are mounted inside the ears of intelligent people, programmed to go off at intervals and disrupt any thoughts. Those who are stronger or faster than others are required to wear heavy weights around their wrists and ankles.

Somehow, the Vonnegut story comes to mind at the present time, particularly in my home county here in Virginia. Loudoun County, a suburb of Washington D.C. where all that fiat money is printed, is the wealthiest in the United States based on per capita income. When I moved here twenty-three years ago, it was solidly Republican, but now it is controlled by the Democrats, largely due to the influx of out of state newcomers moving in to take the thousands of new federal jobs in the burgeoning Global War On Terror. When in power, the Republicans foolishly had allowed their business cronies to build large and ugly commuter housing developments that eventually changed the political power alignment when the liberal newcomers inevitably outnumbered the relatively conservative locals.

The county Board of Supervisors is headed by a black woman named Phyllis Randall. Randall has been in place since 2015 and is reliably progressive. Apart from muttering about “diversity” and “affordable housing,” she has generally avoided race issues in a county that is less than 10% black but has become more outspoken recently. The county seat Leesburg had a monument near the court house featuring a seven-foot bronze war memorial statue of a Confederate infantryman dubbed “Silent Sam” by some of the locals. Randall had described the memorial as a racist symbol that had intimidated “Thousands of Loudoun citizens, Black citizens, who never had a voice and sometimes didn’t have a vote.” It is a ridiculous argument that is often made when historical monuments are about to be purged by vandals, but apparently a statue can inspire real fear in some circles, at least according to Randall.

After being reelected last November and backed by a unanimously gutless board in a May vote, Randall felt empowered to remove the offending statue saying that she was “correcting history” over a “statue [that] should never have been put up.” The removal was accomplished on June 21st, in the midst of the wave of looting, rioting and arson all over the United States that was triggered by the Floyd George death.

Randall has also been pushing to replace the highly respected local sheriff’s department with a police department which would be controlled by her board. The popular sheriff is an elected official and he has committed the crime of being both somewhat independent and a Republican.

Since the removal of the Confederate statue, there has been more fun and games to include an apology to the black citizens of Loudoun from both the board of supervisors and the school board for the school segregation that continued into the 1960s. The local NAACP graciously responded that the apology was “not enough.” That was followed by a slap at another perennial punching bag for the social justice warrior movement. Columbus Day on the school calendar was renamed. Indigenous Peoples Day.

All of that has been bad enough, but the clincher is what is going on with the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS). The school board has spent $422,500 on a consultant to apply Critical Race Theory (CRT) to a new program of instruction that will be mandatory for all employees and will serve as the framework for teaching the students. When schools eventually reopen, all kindergarteners, for example, will be taught “social justice” in a course designed by the controversial Southern Poverty Law Center and “diversity training” will be integrated in all other grade levels.

Critical Race Theory has been fairly criticized as it pretends to be an antidote to systemic racism but is itself racist in nature as it opposes a race neutral system that equally benefits everyone. It proposes that all of America’s governmental bodies and infrastructures are racist and supportive of “white supremacy” and must be deconstructed. It requires everything to be examined through a value system determined by identity politics and race and it views both whites and their institutions as hopelessly corrupted, if not evil.

The principal concern currently is that the school board, which is revising its Personal Conduct Policy 7560 “Professional Conduct” for staff, is basically treating the First Amendment right to free speech as inapplicable when it comes to challenging certain policies involving the school system arguing that the Bill of Rights itself is just a tool in support of white supremacy, which is what CRT teaches. The Personal Conduct draft only addresses the First Amendment briefly, noting that the right “may be outweighed” by LCPS interest in “promoting internal…and external community harmony and peace” through “directives, including protected class equity, racial equity, and the goal to root out systemic racism.”

Section B3 of the draft revised policy requires total commitment to the forthcoming “equity” policies and it threatens punishment to include firing if anyone within the system dares to express a criticism. The full text cites “Any comments or actions that are not in alignment with the school division’s commitment to action-oriented equity policies, and which impact an individual’s abilities to perform their job responsibilities or create a breach in the trust bestowed upon them as an employee of the school division. This includes on-campus and off-campus speech, social media posts, and any other electronic or telephonic communications.”

The school board also has an “Action Plan to Combat Systemic Racism” which will require mandatory “racial literacy” classes for staff with the objective of creating “equity literacy and racial consciousness” for employees. To support struggling black students there will be non-coercive alternatives to suspension or expulsion for misbehavior, a feature that is being copied in many school districts. It is all part of the larger “Comprehensive Equity Plan” that the revised personal conduct policy is intended to protect, which includes manipulating passing grades to achieve “equity” — that is, to reward or punish people based not on their conduct and accomplishments or hard work, but primarily on their race and ethnicity. It calls specifically for the “disruption and dismantling of white racism.” It is not intended to give everyone an equal chance and is rather trying to guarantee a certain outcome. It will mean pushing people through the system based on race rather than merit until they find themselves holding jobs that they cannot possibly perform based on what they learned at school.

If that were not bad enough, the document also encourages school system employees to report on other employees who are critical of the policy. Most companies are within their rights to demand certain behavior while in the workplace, but the Loudoun County Public Schools demand that even criticizing the new policy with friends, family, at home, while on the phone, while shopping or even walking through the park is a violation subject to punishment. The draft states explicitly that employee speech “will not be tolerated” if it could be perceived as “undermining the views, positions, goals, policies or public statements” of Schools Superintendent Eric Williams or the school board. And other LCPS employees would have the “duty to report” speech violations to the school administration. Given that, the likelihood that anyone who is bold enough to surface as an employee-critic would be railroaded by the school administrators and the board is guaranteed. And, one might point out, LCPS has no teachers’ union.

Rod Dreher observes how the policy will also translate into what and how one’s children are taught. They too will be required to conform. “If your kid goes to a church that is not progressive and LGBT-affirming, she better shut up about her religious views at school, or she will be expelled. If you kid won’t consent to calling a trans student by that student’s preferred pronoun, that could be the end of him at Loudoun County public schools. Anything that the left identifies as a manifestation of ‘white supremacy’ — and these days, what isn’t? — makes students who hold it targets of the system. What if a high school student believes that on balance, Robert E. Lee was a noble, if tragic, figure, and said so in a history class? He would have to fear that Loudoun County public schools, in the state of Virginia, would punish him as a white supremacist. Basically, deep-blue, wealthy, predominantly white Loudoun County in suburban Washington, DC, is going to ruin its public schools by turning them into ideology factories.”

One might also observe that imposition of a totalitarian style “equity” regime based on race will inevitably drive many of the academically better prepared students out of the system. Many of the better teachers will also move to the private academies that will spring up due to parental and student demand. Others will stop teaching altogether when confronted by political correctness at a level that prior to 2020 would have seemed unimaginable. The actual quality of education will suffer for everyone involved

The outcry against the proposed Loudoun Public Schools Personal Conduct Policy has been such that there has been some suggestion that it might be revised, but the most recent minutes of school board meetings suggest otherwise. One suspects that if the policy ever actually is approved it will be challenged and declared to be unconstitutional, but it would be unwise to place too much trust in America’s increasingly politicized “social” judicial system.

A quote attributed to Sinclair Lewis goes “If fascism ever comes to America it will be carrying a Bible and wrapped in a flag.” He was wrong. We have learned in the past few months that totalitarianism can come from either the left or the right. Currently in America it is coming wrapped in a lot of virtue signaling emanating from a gaggle of politicians and media “experts” who are working hard to turn the part of the United States that they have not burned down into what they perceive as a utopia where everyone can gather round the campfire and sing “Kumbaya.” Of course, one will have to eliminate all the deplorables first, and some radicals are clearly prepared to use informants and spies to do so. It’s ironic that the progressives who wrote the draft on Professional Conduct for Loudoun County Public Schools just cannot see that there is scant difference between the system of control and intimidation that they are promoting and the vilified regimes once in place in Russia and Germany. Well, possibly the school board will develop a spine and a conscience and reverse itself. But, on the other hand, more likely not. Sadly, the issue is quite real for me as I have grandchildren in LCPS.

  1. It’s interesting that the knowledge of where all this could lead was understood as far back as 1961 by Kurt Vonnegut. But that knowledge had no impact on anything. The crowd that’s had control over American “high culture” and most of the media didn’t care – or actively wanted this misery to be inflicted.

    This should stand as a warning to all those who think merely educating a few Really Smart people in High Places will do the trick.

    Nothing short of a widespread permanent populism by the majority of Whites will save us.

  3. the Floyd George killing.

    “killing”?

    Can you not, PG, get a crew of intelligent sophisticated users of the language to compose models of subversive counter-attacks which would, ideally, set up the dim perps for damagingly expensive and humiliating litigation, but, less ambitiously, provide dissenters with some enjoyably provocative fun.

    E.g. “My retired professor aunt who doesn’t live in the County comes regularly to stay and invariably says something like ‘only complete ignoramuses and dimwits could say X, Y, Z’. I try and explain that the Board of Supervisors may not be Ivy League graduates or even very smart but they are surely trying to do the right thing according to 2020 developments in ideas. But I would appreciate help in countering the substance of her arguments if anyone can help answer someone who insists that there is much good in traditional civilisation”

    Well you get the idea. There could be 50 or so templates for taking the p*** out of those freshly concocted Neanderthals

    What an innovation. Our new Cultural Leaders are molding a system which combines the worst aspects of the Stasi with the worst aspects of an African potentate. Backward tribalism combined with abject stupidity, and enforced with an Orwellian Iron Fist.

    You know, Loudoun County and Virginia itself used to be bastions of relative sanity in a roiling world. So, in a way, it’s natural for them to have been targeted. Oh, did I say ‘targeted’? I meant ‘trashed’.

  6. Prediction: If the general population of the United States persists in advocating mindless hatred of the Russian people while simultaneously coveting Russian natural resources to the point of provocation, then Loudoun County will cease to exist at the speed of the hypersonic weapons targeting both the planners’ residences and their COG bunkers sprinkled about the entire county, especially in the west under the mountains. So much then for LCPS interest in “promoting internal..and external community harmony and peace.”

    I actually read that story in HS English class, along with “Animal Farm,” “1984,” and “One Flew Over The Cookoo’s Nest.” Being already heavily indoctrinated (and suffering PTSD from growing up in the inner-city school system) I was unable to fully articulate to myself why those titles made me so uneasy in the environment of control and racial oppression I had to suffer through.

    Since they don’t present any historical context with the material it was many years before I reread and understood. Who could have guessed that Vonnegut was a critic of the Allied atrocities, Orwell was a socialist, and Kesey a hard-scrabble farmer (in his mind anyhow) whose greatest work is an epic psychedelic attack on labor unions? Certainly not 14 year old me! Still, those works and others profoundly affected me and contributed to my becoming even more of a deluded liberal/marxist full of White guilt and self hatred.

    It is a terrible quality of the Leftist programming that makes itself stronger in the mind as the victim suffers from Stockholm syndrome. Thank God Trump (or rather the media’s reaction to Trump) woke me up or I would still be in denial of the damage my ultra-liberal boomer parents inflicted on my brain by sending me to that hell.

  10. All this crazy racist maneuvering probably would not be happening if Trump had been a competent and considerate leader instead of a dumb jackass who can’t even control his mouth for five seconds or think one or two steps ahead.

    His foolish, no-self-control racist attacks on those 4 minority congresswomen really was the start of this mess now.

    Having the experience of seeing how racial riots start in other countries, there are many diverse and always underlying reasons, but the main factor is bad management and bad leadership in government. That’s called being “Trump”.

    In the case of Trump, he also probably realized later on it would firm up his base and obtain more support from undecided voters if he openly baited and encouraged racist conflict as POTUS.

    “I’ll create massive black vs. white racial riots,” he thought. “I’ll scare everyone, then present myself as the law and order candidate and get lots more votes from white people who don’t really like me but are scared shitless by the riots.”

    That may have worked in the 1920s and 1930s, but today’s electorate, though just above farm animals in intelligence, doesn’t fall so easily for these cheap tricks.

    When you have an idiot in charge, your whole whole organization is a goner, a failure, a suckerplay.

    Whether it is in the military, a business venture, a company, when you have a fool for a leader, everything will go bad, just as it has now with the racial riots and virus.

    This whole shitshow with Mr. Giraldi’s local school system probably would not even have gotten started except for the toxic environment of hatred promoted by POTUS.

    In any any society, different ethnic and cultural groups will have deep-set complaints against each other. But with good leadership, groups can set these aside and live together with mutual tolerance and give-and-take, and overlook the past or whatever makes them hate each other.

    But when u have a braying jackass like Trump who loves to purposely create conflict that he believes will create more support for himself, then you are finished.

  14. sethg says:

    The right can’t withstand the left’s assault because they are too feminized. And they are too feminized because civilization=feminization:

    “1000. For our analysis of civilization to be complete, and therefore correct, we must trace its development along all branches of knowledge: cultural and political as well as mechanical and biological. So let’s start with the mechanical part, which I think is the easiest to grasp, especially for practical-minded people.

    Civilization is the cultural form of evolution, with the same goal as the biological kind: domination of the environment; power in a single word. Civilization accomplishes this in the same way as species do in the wild, by increasing the complexity of the organism, which in this case is not comprised of internal organs but of people, what is known as “human resources”. Shorn of their independence as distinct and sovereign lifeforms, these civilized people (from Latin civilis meaning “civil”, related to civis meaning “citizen” and civitas meaning “city”, i.e. city-dwellers) leave behind the ways of the wild and of their animal and prehistoric tribal ancestors and begin to form groupings of increasing scale and complexity, with each member co-operating with the rest by specializing in an ever-increasing number of tasks of ever-narrowing scope, thereby achieving efficiencies and synergies that boost the group’s power to such high levels that, to the uncivilized, their accomplishments seem nothing short of miraculous, which in a sense they are, as they bring forth artifacts and open up mindscapes that would most definitely have been impossible without this scheme of elaborate co-operation (a phenomenon which scientists call “emergence”). Very soon the civilized tower above the uncivilized to such an extent that they appear as gods to them worthy of worship, and in a real sense they are, since the gods of the uncivilized often appear, even in the latter’s religious fantasies, as weaker and less capable than the civilized.

    But there is a price to be paid for all this newfound power of the group, and this price is the increasing weakening of the individuals that comprise it, as the history of civilization is simultaneously a history of increasing feminization, and no metaphor is more helpful to understanding this than that of the tool and workshop. As every mechanic knows, the more specialized the tool, the more useful it is for the main task for which it was designed, but the more useless for every other task. A hammer or a knife are simple, primitive tools that can therefore be used for a multitude of basic tasks, and if need be they make for fairly decent weapons too; but by the time you get to the kind of space-qualified, low-torque screwdrivers astronauts use in space station repairs or micro ligature devices neurosurgeons use to “accommodate and manipulate ligatures with maximum efficiency” you’re talking about a tool built for a single task that is absolutely fucking useless for any other conceivable task, and so fragile it will break if you look at it the wrong way in the bargain. The same exact fate awaits the hypercivilized and therefore hyperspecialized man, and is indeed already evident all around us, and has been evident to some degree or other for over 6,000 years. Our goal now is to understand the cultural, social and biological processes of how this happens; of how the strong and fearless barbarian who dominated all prehistoric cultures comes at last to be transformed to what in philosophical terminology is known as the subhuman of modern culture, a creature so weak, stupid and pathetic that even women can dominate it and become masters of it; even, in some cases, animals. Once we have understood the genealogy of this clearly no longer human creature, we will by the same token have understood what we must do to prevent it from destroying civilization (and there’s still plenty of time for that, don’t worry); what should have been done in earlier times but wasn’t done due to lacking philosophy; due to lacking that is to say an understanding of precisely what civilization is and how it functions.”

    This may seem like immature hyperbole, but it is quite odd that America would have seemingly been far better off if the NORKS had managed to nuke at least some of the liberal cities as they were threatening at the start of 2017.

    Seattle, Portland, Silicon Valley/SF, LA, San Diego, Chicago, Austin even, and I think a few others would have all been immensely affected. But we would not have had to real with any of the far worse weapon systems that have been used against us with far greater effect today, the weapon systems of psychological, economic social, and even genetic warfare. The adversaries, which consist of a global cabal of several countries, entities, and interests even made up of “allies”have achieved the ultimate victory, fighting and winning a war we don’t even know how to see and recognize, let alone understand, counter or defend against, let alone go on the offense in; which has resulted in the most effective victory in all of human kind by turning its own people into self-destruct mechanisms that have turned on themselves in a kind of state of manic delusion. We keep talking about Iran and China and Russia and old notions of some ridiculous land west type offensive, when reality is that all those things are and always only were distractions … red meat, if you will … that the actors knew very well americas would easily fall for.

    Find what entity pushed the Iraq invasion for many years; find who is finding BLM, SPLC, ADL, ets subversion; find who has been corrupting all our institutions with money and greedy selfishness and you will find the canal that has infiltrated us to the deepest core. I don’t even think any of this is actually reversible, even though I would live to be proved wrong about that; but having been nuked by the NORKS would have actually likely cured us of a lot of the pestilence and disease that has befallen the country.

    Sure, it would have set America back a lot, but it would have also not really set us back that far, relatively speaking; while providing immense benefits by both physically and mentally purging utterly festering and rot affecting our society.

    It is starting to become rather apparent to me that for whatever reason (the theories of which I will not go into now) it seems to become inevitable for a civilization that becomes liberal and does not control that corrosive impulse strongly and with the extreme focus it needs to be controlled, will always result in a bad outcome. It will either result in a reactionary type of purge of the festering rot once things have gotten immensely bad or, as is likely in the USA’s case because the actors are likely aware and counter and reactionary responses through sedativere propaganda and neutralizing immigration, a totalitarian regime takes over and the purge is turned on the native people who expect independence, yet do not demand or enforce it.

    I also have been woken up from years of indoctrination camps called our education system. It sometimes concerns me though that we seem to be just now waking up as the sick psychopathic “left” is clamping down on society on a systematic and top-down Federal level. Have we woken up just soon enough to see the red brigades forming that will bury us?

    Some say some variation on “but we are still the majority” but as Bezmenov also stated and is even apparent once one simply thinks about it, once you control for all the leftists, cucks, and degenerates the system has produced in a kind of genocidal gaslighting abuse, you are left with a “white” population that is well into minority territory. I would be surprised if even a third of the “white” population was conscious about their own interests as all others are of their. That amounts to essentially maybe 18% of the U.S. population at best.

    I suspect that’s why a certain group interest keeps trying to suppress how many mostly Hispanic illegals are in the USA too, because falling below the 50% threshold may trigger a kind of awakening they will want to suppress first in preconditioning; in spite of the fact that in reality we are already well below 50% now. Perception is 9/10 of reality and as long as the “whites” don’t realize they’ve been replaced and overtaken in their own countries, the more likely it will make it impossible to stop their subjugation and domination.

    There is so much contorted falsehood throughout what you said that I will have to cut that Gordian knot by simply saying that you have clearly not been paying attention if you think that Trump somehow caused all, let alone any of this. All of these things, even the OP matter, has existed and been coming for far longer than you clearly understand.

    What you are saying is as nonsensical as if Trump had uncovered that the enemy was burrowing under your castle walls, but when he pointed it out to your king, you simply attacked him for causing the enemy to invade and try to burrow under the castle walls.

    I must break it to you, you are clearly infected with a strain of the “liberal” mental virus that causes the “liberal” mental disorder. I put the term Liveral in quotes, because it does not accurately characterize the mental derangements people suffer from, but there is no good alternative to the label that is clearly understood.

    That mental confusion you seem to be affected by appears to share a common rot in an invasion of self preservation, which manifested itself in various ways common in putting the interests of others ahead of ones own. So, in the case of your comment, that means that you immer cause and effect, to blame the person pointing out the problem instead of accepting, addressing, and solving the problem; let alone blaming and neutralizing the cause of the problem. You are figuratively just tumbling through mental space without such a fundamental foundation to base anything on. There is no up, no down, no anything for you snd therefore you cannot make any sense of anything apparently. It is something one can cite oneself of, but it does mean having to do some deep self-reflection and acknowledgement of error and mistake in order to move on from the cult like indoctrination that has poisoned your mind. Put aside the interests of serving your abusive cult leaders and masters, every day that passes, which you continue to subject yourself to their abuses, is a day you lose.

    I am not convinced that civilization is the feminizing process in itself. There are many examples in human history and across cultures that would belie that. I would say, far more likely is a specific process of rewarding the parasitic that is the real danger. When the parasites have overcome the hosts who created, that is when things turn. I think the civilization aspect you are considering is a correlation that is not causal, albeit most notable.

    What I think contributes to this mirage, is that the parasitic types are drawn to success (just like how one of the cancers they cause, communism, never just goes out into the wilderness or Africa and proves us all wrong with their great success in communism) and the product of what the host created in order to live off of it. It is quite clear that that is the case when you start looking for that pattern and can see it replicated over and over. In many ways, it seems quite clear that we are currently watching the parasite trying to jump from the work out and drained America to a new, strengthening, and vigorous seeming host, China; just as the parasite has jumped from Europe to the USA starting in 1880, the culmination of which of course was the parasite’s instigation and triggering of the final feeding through WWI and then WWII.

    It feels like the parasite is trying to essentially cause a similar, vulture capitalist type pump and dump in the USA and all of the west to feed the last time before departing to feed off China and maybe Asia as a whole this time, an area where the parasite has historically had little to no presence and the feeding is fresh and nutritious.

    They need to pass a class on Robespierre and the French Revolution.

    I suspect they would not even know of whom or what you speak. Too often the only thing they read are the latest novels pushed by their favorite book-review editor or talked about among their incestuous clique of similarly minded friends. Add to that the odd feminist screed, and you have a population with but the most superficial understanding of history ever. They could not even begin to see a connection, for instance, between the Bavarian Illuminati and the French Revolution because the temporal relationship is over their heads, because that would immerse them in a forbidden conspiracy theory and because they are conditioned to avoid anything that might be criticized as racist.

    It’s really quite amazing how smoothly the troll narrative changes. Four years ago it was Russia, Russia, Russia. Then it was 42 lies an hour. Then Treason, Treason, Treason. That transitioned neatly into a contempt for democracy in suggesting Mr. Biden might have some skeletons hidden in the Ukrainian closet. Then when the riots started he was the dictator running roughshod over all those mostly peaceful protesters. Now of course it is “clear” he was fomenting the riots himself.

    Your evidence is so much more convincing too. You are so able to see right into Mr. Trump’s head and ferret out his darkest thoughts.

    The real problem is systemic Marxism of the anti-White racist kind.

    This is the third kind of Marxism after Social (or “class struggle”) Marxism and Cultural Marxism.

    In Social Marxism “capitalism” was the evil and that was embodied in the bourgeoisie, which had to be destroyed. This is what communist countries like Russia, China and Cambodia literally did: some 100 million “class enemies”were murdered.

    In Cultural Marxism normal sex roles or “patriarchy” is the evil and that is embodied in normal, heterosexual, Christian, white men, whose power has to be destroyed by the promotion of feminism, homosexuality and its latest weapon transgenderism.

    In Racial Marxism, AKA “Critical Race Theory”, the white race in its entirety is the evil that has to be “abolished” to use the euphemistic term of Jewish anti-White activist Noel Ignatiev.

    The purpose is first to dispossess white people entirely of any social, economical and political power, and then to cause their disappearance by the promotion of infertility, race mixing and eventually outright genocide.

    The purpose of any form of Marxism is never “to solve a social problem”, but to use such a pretext to destroy the existing power structure and establish its own.

    Any form of Marxism is always a destructive endeavor based on a Big Lie. It is a crime-against-humanity to be a Marxist, and Marxists should be treated as such.

    When in power, the Republicans foolishly had allowed their business cronies to build large and ugly commuter housing developments that eventually changed the political power alignment when the liberal newcomers inevitably outnumbered the relatively conservative locals.

    There is a lot of valid criticism of Democrats, as there should be, but nothing on this earth is as morally rotten as the GOP, Republican party of this betrayed and dying (murdered) nation.

    We all know liberal-progressives are brain-dead lemmings, willing to so along with *anything*, if it bolsters their social status. But it wasn’t liberal-progressives that kept the borders open when the GOP controlled both the Senate and House and the White House.

    It was Paul Ryan, and Mitt Romney, and John McCain and Mitch McConnell. It was George Bush (both) and Reagan and the entire GOP from Nixon to Newt, who sold America’s future to its enemies in order to parlay personal gain and temporary power at the cost of the American people (and their children’s) future.

    When ((they)) brought the slaves and sold them here to White men, they knew they were creating a future of horrors and strife.

    “Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people [blacks] are to be free. Nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government. Nature, habit, opinion has drawn indelible lines of distinction between them.” –Thomas Jefferson

    That was in 1821, two hundred years ago, men knew that Blacks and Whites were fundamentally incompatible. So this stuff isn’t new. But sadly, venality and avarice are just as assuredly written in the indelible character of (White) men. And so the Blacks were ((brought here and sold)) to greedy, myopically self-obse$$ed White men, (who put other White men out of work with the institution of slavery)- exactly like they’re doing today with their modern version of (Mexican and other Third-World wage)-slaves – are the problem.

    But the terrible tragic truth about the evil greed of these thoroughly corrupt White scum (Paul Ryan / Mitt / Jeb!, NASCAR CEOs, et al), is that it won’t be them personally who will pay the terrible price for all this repulsive greed and spiritual rot.

    It will be the middle and working class Whites of Virginia- who won’t be able to afford private schooling for their children. And like the poorer classes of White men put out of work by slavery, these modern day Plantation owners of the Republican party, are dooming White children to a hell on earth, in the nation bequeathed to us by men like T. Jefferson, who, I’m convinced, would put a musket ball though the pelt of Mitt, if he could but stare aghast at what’s been wrought in the Republic he heroically fought to create.

    If only it was those who create these horrors, who would be the ones to suffer the consequences.

    And so it should be, going forward.

    Trump is a tragic figure. But he could turn out to be an historical turning point. A moment in time when the spirit of Western man sees the horrors looming before it’s progeny, and decides, miraculously, and stupendously~ to *care*.

    To care about the kind of world it’s going to be when White children are universally denigrated and despised and demonized and persecuted as evil children of an evil race, because of the infinite envy (and hatred born of envy) of Global-butt-hurt/’wokeness’/progressive-liberal brain rot.

    Are the Whites of this nation, willing to condemn all future generations to a Rotherham type of ‘social justice’, as recompense for ‘four hundred years of genocide, slavery, and oppression’, by an evil race of evil racist White people? Whose evil DNA expresses itself every day that White girls are not marrying and having babies with Black and Brown and Yellow men at the same percentage they are with White men? Is this not proof positive of systematic, endemic, congenital intractable *racism*?!!!! I ask you?!

    If you put it to Jeb!, and Mitt, then yes, they must be made to pay for what they’ve done and continue to do every day to POC.

    But perhaps, just perhaps.. there’s a burgeoning sentiment in this nation and beyond, that the motivating principle ((($))) of the Republican party – has run its vile and treasonous course. And that Trump, (of all people) will herald in a New Republican party, with a nascent and grass roots awakening that it’s waaayyyy past time for the Republican part to look out after its own, instead of the super-corrupt, venal scum (Mitt, Marco, McConnell) who have sold out White America to its most intractable and determined (((enemy))).

    A few years of wokeness and Critical Race Theory (and a thousand other outrages against reason and truth) would surely bring an abrupt awaking among the White masses, but tragically too few of the White liberals and cucked Republican’s children will feel the brunt of those horrors. So they’re all *very* willing to sell out your children (and grandchildren), if it means more shekels clinking in their pockets.

    Death to the GOP! Death to the whores of greed and moral rot and opportunism of today’s Republican party.

    Today is a new day of Trumpism! Where Fake News and treasonous scum at the highest levels of our Republic, are brought down and stomped into the dirt of infamy.

    Trumpism is not about Trump the man. But it does recognize that he was the civilizational lightning rod for The Great Awakening.

    The White race is not evil.

    It’s not congenitally wicked, nor does it harbor oppression of others in its DNA. Quite the contrary. It stands unique among the races of man as having a noblesse oblige to the point of near-suicidal insanity.

    So longing to be considered ‘good’, he’s willing to sacrifice nearly all he has, and all he’s built, to uplift and bring the blessings of his unique genius to all the races and tribes and creeds of man.

    What other race has ever done this?!

    What other race has ever opened up their lands and nations, and given all peoples on the planet all the unique blessings in medicine and technology as the White race has done?

    And his thanks?

    A hatred so brimming with envy and racial malevolence as to blot out their sanity with a seething malice enough to destroy the world’s greatest and freest civilization ever conceived by a human mind.

    And why?, because it’s not their civilization. Because it’s wasn’t a Negro or Asian or myriad other great races of man, that nevertheless did not conceive of and be willing to die for a Magna Carta, or a Bill of Rights. So instead of aspiring to such enlightenment and emulating it, they hate. And boy-oh boy, do they hate.

    The Blacks of Zimbabwe would rather starve (literally) to a man, woman and child, than admit that Western civilization (and a general prosperity and comity) is preferable to Black (savagery and tribal corruption) rule. Ditto South Africa and the District of Columbia and Leesburg, Virginia.

    And I more or less understand. Why wouldn’t they hate the White man. It’s an humiliation to live off the crumbs, (however well-intentioned and fulsome) from Whitey’s table.

    But there’s a lesson in that, and the lesson is that Whitey is the only race that is not intrinsically (often murderously, savagely) racist. But if Whitey’ doesn’t learn that lesson soon enough, he’s going to find out that for all of his ‘noblesse oblige’, and generosity and kindness, that he’s only hated more so for it. And the day will come, when the demographic turning point is a fait acompli, and there will be no turning back.

    And Mitt and Marco and Jeb! and the rest of the GOP, will be nowhere in sight.

They are choosing #2.

    ” what is going on with the Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS). The school board has spent $422,500 on a consultant to apply Critical Race Theory (CRT) to a new program of instruction that will be mandatory”

    And people let it happen…

    Here is a story from the region where I did grow up:
    A girl had a botfriend (both whites), became pregnant, they were happy.
    But the girl was 13, so the school obligated by law sent her to the “Child protection and family support centre” a state run semi-authority institute.
    They tried to convince her with some feminist-liberal propaganda to have an abortion as claimed she is too young to be a mother, or better never be one but study and build a carrier.
    First the girl calmly opposed it told them yes, she is aware of the consequances, they (with her boyfriend) ready, and thank you but needs no abortion, she wish to have a baby.
    When the employees get aware propaganda have no effect they hit a stronger tone, and try to coerce that she agree to an abortion.

    The girl became so angry (“they try to kill my baby”), run out, get notified the locals, and locals soon come back armed from baseball bats till chainsaw chains and molotov coctails.
    They burn the institute till the ground, and employees get full aware if they ever dare to come back to that town then the divers will fail to find they bodies in the fast drifting river (the common way where enemies turn up).
    Off course the anwer was the usual: heavy occupational forces (from normal to special police till commandos) importune. But as usual they must leave by time, and face the fact again: as any before them in the past some 1,000 years failed to rule the region. The resistance has it`s traditions.
    “We have our own way to do business.”

    So the question are:
    “Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS). The school board”
    – Why the school board building, and affiliated building not burned till the ground?
    – Why all the liberal-CRT scum who made those rules still alive?
    – Why the traitors who sent any report about their co-workers who opposed this CRT madness not crippled for life?

    The ones who truly against the ultraliberal madness can learn from the Chechen guy who dealt with the teacher in France and give a proper example: provocations not always remain unpunished, sometimes there will be retaliation: true and just.

    In the past, Mr. Giraldi has written many columns (how on earth does he write so many?) bashing President Trump. It was to the point where I felt he suffered from TDS.

    But now, though this column does not mention the president, I wonder if the current reality regarding his county’s takeover by a determined Woke minority has changed his mind. He questions the objectivity of judges, as so many of us do. Yet, last night was a victory for the Republic with the appointment of Justice Amy Barrett to the Supreme Court. That’s now three Trump appointments to the SC, which would be a solid conservative majority if not for the defection of the Chief Justice. McConnell and Graham have also helped steer through dozens and dozens of other Constitutionalists to lower federal courts.

    So, whatever one thinks of Trump, his greatest legacy may be in reshaping of the Federal Bench. He recently banned the teaching of Critical Race Theory to government employees. It may be a matter of time before more school boards wake up to the danger and abandon it. If it’s determined to be unconstitutional, hopefully the courts will strike it down. Now, just imagine how much worse the outlook for Heritage America would be if Hillary had won, or if Harris/Biden wins this year through voter fraud. His many judicial appointments alone are the best reason to vote for Trump.

    Don’t let Jared Kushner get a better education than your grandchild. Stick him in a class with D’Quan, La’Queesha, and Lushus (a real name in deepest darkest Memphrica, no kidding). Would Jared get beaten half to death? Yep, 2 or 3 times at least. But his daddy would get involved with whats taught in that school, and has the $ to make sure people on the school board aren’t Marxists.

    I just heard this morning that 60 million or so have already voted. It was reported that, especially due to the metastasizing Biden scandals, many of those who voted by mail want to change their vote to Trump. The good news is that many states allow it if done before the votes are counted on election day. I wonder how many voters will follow through. At least it’s a bit more bad news for the sad senile old man who spends most of his time hiding in his basement.

Unfortunately, the only way to avoid those problems are by not being part of the system. The dark forces will attack and destroy anyone and anything in their way through totally illegal methods. Boycott the system! Starve the parasites! Turn the Great Reset into The Great Rejection!

    Ideas such as critical race theory will be the justification for white genocide someday. The ethnic group that controls most of our important institutions like the media and academia are already marginalizing whites as portrayed in TV commercials, movies and television shows. These things must evolve and take time but make no mistake about why all this is happening. The Great Replacement will eventually turn into the Great Purge.

    I hope that your own children are not drinking this Kool-Aid and instead are reading your analysis and making plans for cooperative home-schooling or private academies. The problem here is that the state can make enormous problems for those who opt out and vote with their feet because the state still has the “credentialing” power.

    We won’t be voting our way out of this mess.

    I wish more people would come to this understanding.

    “The fact is that there is racial insensitivity,” Biden said, when the subject of Trump banning racial sensitivity training in federal agencies came up. “People have to be made aware of what other people feel like, what insults them, what is demeaning to them.”

    [my emphasis]

    https://www.cnsnews.com/index.php/blog/alexander-watson/tucker-blasts-biden-critical-race-theory-racial-supremacy-not-sensitivity

    Children (White only) have to be made aware of the evil of their ancestors. The evil that runs in the racist blood of their veins. The evil that causes the systemic racism in their racist nation. A nation built on genocide and slavery and racism, that continues to this very day, because of the congenital racism of all White people, including all White children.

    The only solution to that is to indoctrinate all White children to understand how guilty and evil and racist they all are, and always will be, as long as White people, (racists) exist.

    Reparations are a start. Laws that punish White people (racists) for their eternal crimes against all POC.

    It must be coerced for it to work, because White people’s racism is written in their DNA.

    Blah, blah, blah

    And depending on how Americans *vote*, will decide if Biden and his ilk, are entrenched in power.

    I get that a lot of people hate Trump. (I’m personally not a fan)

    He’s a zio-stooge, and it shows.

    And he’s done very little if nothing, for White people.

    But what you people don’t understand, is what it is that lurks behind door number two.

    And sticking our heads in the sand, and saying ‘Trump, you’re a disappointment, and you didn’t do the things you said you’d do, so I’m going to teach you a lesson!

    Is not very prudent, considering the alternative, IMHO.

    Thanks for penning this excellent article, Phil. It appears you’re becoming, out of necessity, just as strong on the domestic policy front as you are on foreign policy.

    I agree it’s an excellent article, and important. Perhaps, however, Phil could be persuaded to eventually move from his considerable knowledge of foreign and domestic policy to a study of cultural history and human behavior.

    In any event, Marxism, Cultural Marxism, Political Correctness, Identity Politics and Critical Race Theory are all variations of the Hebrew Bible. A book of judgment with a lot of rules and no mercy.

    Attention should be directed toward discernible patterns of behavior throughout a culture’s history.

    Unlike every other world-historic culture, without exception, Jewish Supremacy Inc. is distinguished by its predatory and parasitic nature. Because of this its discernible patterns of behavior over the course of time, but especially in the last 100+ years in the geographical areas of Western Europe and North America are the following:

    The insane demand to be placed above criticism, loved unconditionally, and blindly obeyed. But, because these demands are insane, they have to victimize, blame victim, play victim.This criminal behavior requires them to destroy the evidence, control the narrative, and enforce the law (on anyone looking for evidence to question the narrative).

    It’s exactly because JSI has the power to effectuate those demands that they are the only real Supremacists in the world today. Making a mockery of their charge of White Supremacy against those who don’t even have the right of self-defense.

    No one presenting a theory should expect it to be automatically believed. The value of any theory is in its being tested and used. That’s why CRT, though presented as the truth, isn’t even a theory. Which is why its imposition will lead to massive cultural impoverishment and social incoherence of a magnitude never seen before, and a corresponding collapse of our institutions, all of them.

    What we are witnessing, what we are living through, is nothing less than The Pyrrhic Victory of Jewish Supremacy Inc. For that reason, and to turn their words against them, Treason against Jewish Supremacy is loyalty to humanity.

    ” In Cuba I never saw a statue of Castro or any road named after him. ”

    That’s because it was one of Fidel’s explicit dying wishes. On the other hand, you’ll find plenty of public memorials and a statue in Havana to Fidel’s murderous sidekick Che Guevara in Cuba.

    https://traveltips.usatoday.com/cuban-landmarks-monuments-106248.html

    That’s also the same Che Guevara who remarked in his book The Motorcycle Diaries:

    In Che Guevara’s diary, he wrote of “the blacks” living in Caracas, Venezuela, calling them “those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing.” [Ironically, Che didn’t like to bathe himself either, but that was because bathing exacerbated his severe asthma.]

    Guevara went on to write: “the black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving.”

    Fontova says Guevara’s actions – in his revolution against the Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista – were worse than his remarks.

    “Many of the people Che was sending to the firing squad were members of Batista’s army, and these disproportionately tended to be black and mulatto. Batista himself was mulatto.”

    Batista had been considered by many Cubans to be a friend of Cuba’s black minority, and had elevated several to prominent posts in government.

    Che wasn’t too keen on fags either. He liked to send them to work and “re-education” camps along with other misfits.

    Wrong comparison. A very wrong one. When Alarich pillaged Rome in 410, he did the job in a Swiss fashion, ordering everybody to take note of all precious objects, to calculate its value, to transport them and stack them in orderly way into warehouses, and sweep the emptied rooms perfectly clean. Germanic tribes, like more recently in the history of their descendent countries, seemed to have been maniac about tidiness in a nitpicking way that flabbergasted all Italians. Actually this pillage was a sum due to masses of soldiers and public artisans (most able smiths, road builders and websters were Germanic by then, and formed Rome’s overworked working poor class) that hadn’t paid for years and had gone on strike until they could enjoy a normal revenue. The were no marauders in the streets but orderly plans being executed. Later one, when the last emperor yielded his power to the Ostrogoth King Odoacer, there was no burning, looting nor murder like with the BLM : the city of Rome was ruined due to a 50 year economic recession (mostly due to the cut off of food supplies from Libya and other former provinces) and Odoacer tried his best to repair some monuments and aqueducts so as to promote Rome in its new vocation, no longer an Italian capital like Ravenna had become, but a religious pilgrimage.

And the fact that he isn’t going to turn out to be some great White hope of some kind. But I never thought he was. So I’m not butt-hurt over his failures and sniveling fealty to Zion. I expected it.

    Call it shadenfreude, or justice, but I confess to wanting to see it. Just as I want to see Pelosi and Nadler and Schiff and all the rest of them, feeling what it’s like when an Iraqi or Syrian mother sees her child dead. Sacrificed for the political expediency of Hillary’s and the rest of their perfidious ambitions. I want to see justice.

    I just don’t think he will stave off what’s headed our way.

    It isn’t that he will stave off what’s headed our way Geo, but that the alternative will be unimaginable.

    Biden will be blank check for Zio. Just as his boss Obama was. Just as all the rotten rats in the Democrat party all are. Only we won’t just get wars with Iran and possibly Russia and others, we’ll also get Critical Race theory, and a war on Heritage America that will make Waco and Ruby Ridge look like act one.

    I see Trump defend the Confederate statues, and monuments to our Western heritage, as wokeness demands they all be defiled and destroyed as monuments to an evil time, and an evil people, and I’m just gob smacked when (you ; ) people act like there’s zero difference between Trump and Kamala/Pelosi/the Clintons/SPLC/Fake News/ ad infinitum, ad nauseum, and I wonder how the fuck (with all due respect Geo) you’re missing it.

    If I’m right and he wins, let’s all take note of what Trumpstein accomplishes in his second term and see if he is The Great White Hope that you, Rurik, and many other Unzers seem to think he is, k?

    “k”?

    Ok, I’ll take a little snide from you Geo, if I came across as rude. (I didn’t mean to).

    But let’s be fair, eh? For four years now, there have been some here, who’ve railed and frothed and soiled themselves that Trump was going to be the greatest disaster of all time!!!

    But in four years, what has he done that has even come close to the atrocities and horrors writ large on the planet of his predecessors?

    Compared to Bush and Obama, he’s been a statesman and a saint.

    So where then are all these doomsday nuclear wars and ending of civilization as we know it, that were all prognosticated to happen during the reign of the worst man ever to inhabit the White House?

    Where are their mea culpas that ‘OK, he wasn’t as bad as I said he would be’?

    It seems like their mantra is now, Well sure, but that was only his first term! It’s in his second term that he’s going to blow up the Middle East and impose martial law and kill us all!
    (that is hyperbole, btw ; )

    Remember how they ranted and gibbered, how they frothed and lathered? ‘Trump is the devil!!’

    But he hasn’t turned out that bad.

    Yes, killing the general was a cowardly act. And there were others, but still compared to destroying entire nations, it doesn’t register on the scales we use today, where presidents now commit treasons foreign and domestic, like they’re brushing their teeth.

    The Great White Hope that you, Rurik, and many other Unzers seem to think he is

    I’ve always hated the cartoon-like kneejerk idiocy.

    If you don’t hate Trump = you Love him and consider him a great savoir!

    It’s like if you criticize Israel = you hate all Jews and want to gas them all!

    If you criticize BLM = you hate all Black people and want to kill/enslave them all.

    It permeates every aspect of our society and culture, this idiotic cartoon narrative.

    I don’t want millions of non-White immigrants moving in = you are a hate-consumed Nazi and want to kill all non-Whites!

    You see how that works?

    If I say Trump isn’t (nearly) as bad as the other guy = then Rurik believes (against all reason and experience and every word he’s ever written) that Trump is “The Great White Hope”

    Why would you make that gigantic leap, Geo, unless it’s to mock me as an idiot?

    Why put such (outrageous) words in my mouth, unless it’s to mischaracterize and disparage my arguments?

    You’re far too honorable and honest to stoop to such things, brother.

    There is much more to the “Emmett Till” story that is not widely known.

    Killing him made him into a “martyr” of the black “civil-rights” movement. but–it is not generally known that Emmett Till was a strapping young man of about 160 lbs.–NOT a “little boy” as some media types tried to portray him as. He was a known womanizer and attempted to take his cocky Chicago ways in dealing with women to the Deep South.

    He was sent to live with relatives in the South because his Chicago relatives could not handle him. He had a cocky attitude and bragged about “getting it on” with white women–not a good idea in the South. . .

    According to published accounts, Mr. Till did not just “whistle” at a white woman, but grabbed, manhandled and fondled a married white woman on a dare from his friends.

    In Southern culture, this was, and still is, the ultimate form of disrespect.

    Despite Mr. Till’s relatives’ attempts to spirit him out of town to avoid retribution by the woman’s relatives and townspeople, his cocky attitude “got in the way”, similar to the way that “young master Trayvon’s” attitude got him killed.

    Despite being given numerous chances to apologize for his behavior, he was defiant to the end. IF he had apologized for his behavior, he would still be alive today. In fact, one of his killers was a black man.

    It is interesting to note that Emmett Till’s father was executed by the U S military for multiple rapes. Maybe “the apple didn’t fall far from the tree” . . .

    Why would you make that gigantic leap, Geo, unless it’s to mock me as an idiot?

    You know me better than to suggest something like that.

    Here’s the thing… when I see Trump partake in a WWE charade with Vince McMahon (see the video I posted in a previous comment) duping an audience of 85,000 spectators, it simply doesn’t make me feel warm and fuzzy about his integrity. [And, for me, integrity is one of the most important qualities when it comes to judging a person’s character].

    Taking part in this WWE stunt suggests to me Trump is someone who feels comfortable deceiving the audience… and now that he’s president, it suggests he may be comfortable deceiving his base. And, if we go by his first term, most would agree he hasn’t fulfilled many of his 2016 campaign promises to his base.

    The icing on the cake for me personally is when our good friend, Sam Shama, was high as a kite for Trump. Remember Sam? He was singing Trump’s hosannas on a regular basis. This also gave me pause. And when I came across this Roger Stone quote – I’m HARDCORE Zionist and so is president Trump – this too was disheartening.

    Taken together, I have strong misgivings about Trump. But, let’s see. If he wins, which is what I think TPTB want, he’ll get another four years to prove me wrong. And, if I’m not mistaken, you yourself have indicated on a number of occasions there may be potential for disappointment. But, you never know, you could end up being right and I could end up being wrong. We’ll just have to wait until 2024 or sooner to know for sure. Only then can we judge if your instincts were right and mine were wrong.

  102. Psychotronic Weapons 

    [MORE]

    Since the devices were illegally implanted in me while unconscious at Columbia St. Mary’s Ozaukee on March 27th, 2014, I have barely been able to cry, despite intense feeling of sorrow resulting from a serious of personal tragedies and losses that few would be able to survive, all tragic events were a cascade of losses in such a rapid succession and of such grave consequences that to say that it is truly a series of horrors would be a gross understatement. I used to cry constantly. I am simply unable to express it as a result of psychotronic weaponry, it is not that I do not feel it. It started with immediate sleep deprivation and extremely loud tinnitus in my left ear, and the inability to cry. They turned my brain into a three way transistor radio with devices implanted in both ears and in my nasal cavity. I have written about this in the past and have told many people and informed law enforcement, politicians, and health care at all levels, and all notifications have been ignored, laughed at, and even resulted in threats against me by St. Mary’s staff. Immediately my first phone was hacked in June of 2017, someone started using DEWs on me. The DEW users repeat non-sensical chants and sexually harrass me and ask me to give up things to them, none of which I have given up. I do not hear it if music is playing, or listening to the radio because the radio waves are larger than the microwaves and displaces them like ripples in a pool from a boulder would displace ripples from a pebble. It is the most offensive and grotesque personal invasion concievable and I have been raped by a stranger, prior to this, and this is much worse, because it never stops, it is an invisible, cowardly, brain-raping, parasitic, psychopath that will not stop. It is total rape by a total coward(s) and a total moster(s) that belongs in a federal pennitentiary for life. I do not know how many people are involved. Anything with a motor also repeats these chants, as well as anything with plumbing because the microwaves can jump to copper pipes. Since I have experienced it miles away from my home, with or without cell-phone, I have concluded that it is beamed from a satellite, and are frequency specific to the illegally implanted devices. My house is constantly broken into and things stolen and vandalized as well as neighbors that stalk and spy and gas-light and have even placed things in their windows that they stole from my home including curtains , and small round globe colored lights which the lights have been removed and placed back in their windows dozens of times. This terrorism has conicided with all of the tragic losses that I have endured since 2014. I have lived in this neighborhood since 2000 and never had a single problem with a neighbor until then. New neighbors have also moved in all around me since then on three sides. Two of those neighbors have placed items stolen from me in their windows. 

    There is a terrorist network in my neighborhood. The people involved in this are not from a particular political party or religion. Some of the individuals involved that livec here prior to 2014 are Republicans, some are Democrats, some are Christian, some are Jews. I have lived in this neighborhood for longer than all of but four other households. Many new neighbors have also moved into the neighborhood and the majority of the men and women do not have jobs, so how they can live here without jobs is unusual. This was all pre-lockdown.

    Vault7 tevhnology is also being used on me. My smart meter was hacked as well as appliances and people remotely control my lights, thermostat, and appliances at their whims. This could only happen to someone living in a shit-hole neighborhood, in a shit-hole village, in a shit-hole county, in a shit-hole state, in a shit-hole country, considering all that have been notified and refused to prosecute and imprison the psychopathic terrorists. Notifications have gone from the Grafton police, all the way up to Donald Trump. 

    The only reason that I have not killed myself is because I want to expose them and have them permantly thrown in federal pennitntiaries where they can no longer harm people because they pose extreme dangers to society.

    The sad reality is that the creamy layer among the blacks, the so-called high achievers can largely only maintain their lifestyle by grifting the whites, while simultaneously show a Janus face to the whites as the people best able to handle discontent among the blacks. The fact that blacks have lower IQ etc, should not be a bar to them achieving reasonable pay and the lifestyle to go with. But they need to work with their hands, in factories and workshops, bakeries and such. Instead all the rewards go towards these university educated blacks, who in almost all cases will flunk a calculus course. Therefore they gravitate towards subjects that have high incendiary value, sociology, pseudo Marxist economic theory etc, which have room for those who generate a great deal of verbosity to cover their essential ignorance, while at the same time seemingly provide a foundation for their grievances. The Americans of the 20th century were rich enough to indulge in such mindlessness, I don’t think they can it afford it much longer. Over educating elements who have no visible means of holding a job except by manufacturing grievances is not a recipe for peace or prosperity.

    Yup. They jumped from Russia to Germany to the USA and they also came from all over Europe to Britain before that according to Leslie Fry.:

    [MORE]

    Henceforth, Britain will do the bidding of her real masters ; she has
    become the tool of the schemers against all she holds dear, namely, her
    faith, her patriotism, traditions, civilisation. She grants the “ returned ”
    aliens equality of civil rights ; they may and do become mayors over
    Christian population, and within a short time Britain is ruled by a
    Jewish Prime Minister, Disraeli, first and foremost a Jew and the
    flunkey of the powerful Rothschild financiers.

    One of the consequences of this disastrous political mistake is the
    transformation of the national attitude of Great Britain and her
    colonies into that of the British Empire. Disraeli who inspired it
    knew what he was scheming for, the British people did not. But with
    him, Zionism is carried up to the very heights of the British Throne, a
    Zionist World Empire is on the high road to realisation.

    Nonsense, there will be no white genocide. In fact, once whites are stripped of political power and subjugated, I wouldn’t be surprised if efforts are made to increase their number, for one obvious reason: females. There will always be a demand for white females, and so no matter who you think is going to end up on top in formerly white countries, whether it’s Jews, Blacks, Mestizos, or Arabs (or most likely a coalition of all the above), they will want to keep whites around to ensure the future availability of white females. The point of cultural marxism and its offshoots is not to eliminate the whites, but to weaken them to the point they can be turned into chattel to be used as the ruling ethnies see fit. The future of whites isn’t bright, but it’s not genocide. The white race will be humbled but it will endure.

    doesn’t make me feel warm and fuzzy about his integrity.

    I saw the video where he hams it up, (if that’s the one where McMahan gets the haircut), and it didn’t bother me in the least.

    He was playing to the crowd. Like Jessie Ventura, for instance.

    , it suggests he may be comfortable deceiving his base. And, if we go by his first term, most would agree he hasn’t fulfilled many of his 2016 campaign promises to his base.

    No, he hasn’t fulfilled a lot. But a lot of that was because of the deepstate machine.

    And I agree he also lied. But I never considered him an honest man to begin with, so I didn’t feel betrayed. If he opened the borders or started a war on Syria or Iran, I would have felt betrayed, and written him off. But he didn’t do those things. And has even tried to disengage from Syria and Iraq and Afghanistan and even NATO.

    Pe0ple say he’s pissing off Germany and France and Canada and elsewhere, and I say ‘why the hell not?! Look at who’s running those countries (into the dirt).

    this too was disheartening.

    You were more hopeful, I suspect Geo, than I was. It was always enough for me that he didn’t go full-on neocon, and bomb the shit out of Iran, and start an open hot war with Russia.

    Which is what they wanted, even demanded. But he symbolically gave them their embassy and a meaningless gesture about the Golan, and no wars.

    Taken together, I have strong misgivings about Trump.

    Me too.

    We’ll just have to wait until 2024 or sooner to know for sure. Only then can we judge if your instincts were right and mine were wrong.

    Well, I’ve never really felt like it was a contest. But I do think there were a lot of voices insisting that Trump would be a disaster (wars, authoritarian police state, economic disaster, etc..) that never came to pass. So at least they should do some soul-searching, and at least admit to themselves that they were mistaken about Trump, at least in his first term.

    As for his second, IDK. As you say, he could turn out to be the biggest disaster of our times.

    But I doubt it. I think he wants a legacy. I think he wants his children to grow up proud to have his name.

    I could be wrong, and he could blow it all up, but the whole point is, we don’t know about Trump, other than what he’s done in his first term. But we do know about Biden and wokeness, and so for me, who not to vote for, will be a no-brainer, so to speak. 😉

    Twelve Steps to White Recovery by Frank Ellis, American Renaissance, October 28, 2020:

    The University of Minnesota’s School of Social Work and Continuing Education Series came up with a program to cure white people of various afflictions, specifically “Whiteness.” The 12-Step Program is modeled on the one used by Alcoholics Anonymous. In response, I offer my own 12-Step program designed to help whites to break free of politically-correct conditioning. If enough whites resist the organized and often state-sponsored contempt directed at them, there is hope for revival and, above all, survival. Alexander Solzhenitsyn wrote:

    If we manage to stand our ground then it shall only be on the stony path of our own resources, on the extensiveness and duration of our statehood, culture and Orthodox faith. And if we do not stand our ground, that means we go under.

    Let us also not hope that some kind of miracle will turn up and will of itself save us. All of us are Russia. We have made her what she is and it is up to us to get her back on her feet. So that the twenty-first century will not become the last for Russians we must find in ourselves the strength and ability to resist the decline here and now, and the greater the destructive forces that bear down on our country, the greater must be the resistance. (Rossiia v obvale (Russia in Ruins) Russkii put’, Moscow, 1998, p.45 & p.159.)

    The 12 steps:

    [MORE]

    Step 1: I admit that as I passed through primary, secondary and tertiary education, I was subjected to agitation and propaganda, the aim of which was to condition me to accept that the neo-Marxist ideology of diversity was a good thing and that white people — my people — were the worst of all people. When someone spat in my face, I believed — because I wanted to believe — that he had kissed me;

    Step 2: I recognize that it is possible to escape the ideological captivity known as diversity and so recover my intellectual freedom;

    Step 3: Although the imposition of politically-correct thinking and behavior relies on group and collectivist pressure — a powerful social force — I recognize that liberation begins in a man’s heart and soul. I, as an individual, succumbed to this depravity. I, as an individual, must conquer the demon in me;

    Step 4: I wandered alone but not lonely for I felt God’s hand on my shoulder and I pondered and rejected the false doctrine of diversity and its monstrous assault on white people, their culture, and civilization;

    Step 5: I confess that in succumbing to the evils of diversity, I betrayed myself, my family, my culture, my history, my people, the spirit of July 4, 1776, the Marines who perished on Iwo Jima, and the Founding Fathers. I shall never forsake the First and Second Amendments;

    Step 6: I recognize that if the West succumbs to the false doctrine that truth is merely a social and political construct, the West shall fall;

    Step 7: In order better to understand the nature of the threat to the West, I gathered knowledge and understanding of my opponents. I became wise in the ways of Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao and their successors and imitators;

    Step 8: I recognize that those who accuse me of white supremacy resent the West. They are committed to the destruction of the West so that all will live under their hegemony;

    Step 9: The West and its achievements are the foundation of the modern world. Ours is a noble and honorable struggle;

    Step 10: I suggest to non-whites that if they find life in a society created by whites too much of a burden, they should return whence they came;

    Step 11: Every day I marvel at the scientific achievements of the West that have taken men to the Moon and sent probes to the planets. My thoughts reach out to Voyagers1 and 2. The Moon pines for our return and Mars beckons;

    Step 12: Our opponents use the language of peace and caring, they talk of tolerance and compassion. But their smiles are serpentine and cold. Our very existence offends them. If they are successful, future generations may never know we even existed.

    The blame for this “shitshow” lies squarely with the Democrats. They’ve been working on this for decades starting with propagating anti-white racism along with anti-semitism in the black community. Anti-white critical race theory has been incubating for 2 decades in academia. Notice that the protesting, rioting and looting is happening in Democrat run cities. They could have implemented their local “utopia” by providing jobs, affordable housing to low income minorities, and police reform but they didn’t. It’s much easier to continue fomenting racial hatred for voting purposes and blaming Republicans while the racial grievance grifters make bank. How’s that for hypocrisy.

    BLM made its first appearance during the Trayvon Martin debacle, reappearing during the Michael Brown fiasco and they promoted racial hatred and lies. No one in the Democrat party or MSM corrected the record that “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” was a lie and that George Zimmerman was legitimately defending himself. This was the time for Obama to change the course from racial grievance to racial unity and he pathetically failed. He stoked it instead.

    Trump is no racist. It’s people like you who are utterly unhinged and refuse to accept reality. Trump’s election was supposed to be a wake up call for the left to reassess their failed policies, instead they doubled and tripled down on them in rage and revenge because they think they are the elites who are correct and everyone must bow down to them. How the f*ck do you have a failed presidential candidate like Hillary Clinton who, to this day, continues to claim that the election was stolen from her? Her behavior after the election was disgraceful. The extremist entitlement mentality among the left is atrocious. Extreme tantrums when they don’t get their way.

    Great point. But, if I’m not mistaken, my understanding is his favourite child is Ivanka…

    Ivanka Trump was the family member that “everyone in the family seems to acknowledge” is her father’s “favorite” child.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivanka_Trump

    Having converted to Orthodox Judaism, she also goes by Yael Kushner.

    Here’s what Jared has to say about DJT:

    “My father-in-law is not an anti-Semite. The fact is that my father-in-law is an incredibly loving and tolerant person who has embraced my family and our Judaism since I began dating my wife. His support has been unwavering and from the heart.”

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/jared-kushner-once-broke-up-with-ivanka-trump-because-she-wasnt-jewish/

    So, speaking of legacy, if I’m not mistaken Trump has once proclaimed himself, as follows: “I am the chosen one.” And they’re feeding into his uuuuuge ego by minting 1,000 biblical half-shekel coins, with his portrait alongside that of King Cyrus…

    Did you notice the words engraved at the bottom of that coin?

    “And He charged me to build Him a house in Jerusalem.”

    That quote comes straight from the Hebrew bible…

    Ezra 1:2
    “Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah.”

    So, you see, (((they’re))) whispering in Trump’s ear: “you can be just as great as King Cyrus the Great, who liberated the Jews from Babylonian captivity and facilitated the building of the Second Temple.”

    They are urging Trump to do the same: “vanquish all of Israel’s enemies and facilitate the building of the Third Temple.”… and you will go down in history as a great leader, perhaps the GOAT (greatest of all time)!

    And, didn’t Shelly Adelson’s spouse, Miriam, once say she wanted a “Book of Trump” added to the Hebrew bible?

    “Would it be too much to pray for a day when the Bible gets a ‘Book of Trump,’ much like it has a “Book of Esther” celebrating the deliverance of the Jews from ancient Persia?” Adelson wrote in a column published July 6 in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a newspaper the Adelsons own.

    https://www.rgj.com/story/news/2019/07/10/miriam-adelson-wants-book-trump-bible-possible/1693850001/

    So, I think you hit the nail on the ahead about the importance he places on leaving behind a legacy for his favourite child. And, this is why I fear his second term could turn out to be “the biggest disaster of our times.”

    Debate | Is Trump good or bad for the Jews?

    The U.S. presidential election has divided Jews as it has the whole country. While recent surveys show that some three-quarters of Jewish voters support former Vice President Joe Biden, as they have largely backed Democrats for the last century, a sizable portion of our communities are siding with the incumbent Republican President Donald Trump.

    With the election six days away and millions of Americans casting ballots, we asked two of our writers, Eli Steinberg and Joel Swanson, to debate an essential question: Is President Trump good for the Jews?

    [MORE]

    Joel Swanson: This week, the American Jewish Committee released a groundbreaking survey about antisemitism in America. The results were sobering: 82% of Jews think antisemitism has increased in the past five years. Nearly half of us feel less secure than we did a year ago. And seven out of 10 U.S. Jews think the Republican Party has a serious antisemitism problem, compared to only four out of ten who think that about the Democratic Party. And fully three-quarters of American Jews think the far-right poses a “very serious” or “moderately serious” threat to Jewish safety in the United States today, compared to only one-third who feel that way about the far-left.

    So the facts are these: We’re living at a time when we have a United States president who dog whistles to white supremacist groups during nationally televised debates, energizing these groups through remarks that the Anti-Defamation League says “provide rhetorical aid and comfort to these groups.”

    So my first point is this: If Trump is really good for the Jews, why is he opposed by the vast majority of American Jews, who also think that he and his party bear personal responsibility for dramatically rising antisemitism in the country?

    Eli Steinberg: The question which lies before us is whether re-electing Donald Trump is good for Jews, not whether most Jews will be supporting him in the upcoming election. We can agree that they will not be voting Trump. The question is why, and the answer is that for most Jews, the issues most important to them have nothing to do with Judaism at all, as a 2012 Public Religion Research Institute found. 66% of Jews said the economy and income inequality were their top priorities. What’s more, 46% of Jews defined their actual Jewish identity as a commitment to social justice and equality, double those who defined their Jewishness in terms of religious observance (17%), cultural heritage and tradition (6%), or a general set of values (3%) combined.

    So there needs to be a clear distinction here: Are we discussing whether Trump is good for progressives who happen to be ethnically Jewish? Or are we going to take a hard look at which one of the two tickets before us is better for Jews qua Jews? That is the question we are debating.

    And on that, there is no question.

    President Trump has made religious liberty a consistent priority, whereas his challenger, Joe Biden, has taken the opposite path, promising to go back to court with the nuns of the Little Sisters of the Poor to force them to do something they say will violate their sincerely held beliefs. And his VP pick, Kamala Harris, sponsored a law to water down the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, essentially putting the government in charge of determining what legitimate exercise of religion is.

    So which one of the two is good for the Jews?

    Joel Swanson:

    It seems the heart of our disagreement here lies in two questions: What are Jewish values, and should we evaluate “Jewish values” in a normative, prescriptive sense, based on what they should be, or should we just look at what Jewish values among the overwhelming majority of American Jews actually are?

    Because the fact is, data consistently shows that the overwhelming majority of American Jews do not define “Jewish values” in terms of halakhah or adherence to Jewish law. A major Pew poll found that only 19% of American Jews think that “observing Jewish law” is essential to being Jewish. But those values of “leading an ethical and moral life” and “working for justice and equality” that you so dismiss are essential to the way a lot more American Jews define our Jewishness. And here is where most of us disagree with President Trump so strongly.

    I’m sure you would respond that those aren’t really “Jewish values” per se; that they’re just a way for ethnic Jews who no longer follow Jewish law to smuggle their own left-leaning politics into an ostensibly Jewish cultural framework. But here is where we fundamentally disagree: There’s a lot more to Jewish history and culture than just Jewish law and Jewish Orthopraxy.

    In fact, most American Jews see Jewishness as an expression of a people’s culture and history as much as a “religion,” which is why fully two-thirds of us believe you can be Jewish without believing in God, and why growing numbers of millennial Jews describe ourselves as culturally but not religiously Jewish.

    But, for those many American Jews who might identify with Jewish culture and history but not necessarily formal religious practice, I would argue that our overwhelming rejection of President Trump is no less rooted in an understanding of Jewish culture, history, and identity than is the Orthodox Jewish embrace of President Trump, even if it is a very different understanding of what “Jewishness” means. The single value that the largest number of American Jews cite as essential to being Jewish is “remembering the Holocaust.”

    And there’s a reason why so many young Jews cite our collective memory of the trauma of persecution and the Holocaust as motivation to fight against the Trump administration’s cruel family separation and immigration policies. (And, by the way, polls show that the single issue that unites the largest number of American Jews politically, 78% of us, is opposition to the Trump administration’s family separation policies.)

    Are those not “Jewish values” also?

    So I think the question before us is this: What does it mean for a value to be “Jewish,” and might the overwhelming majority of American Jews who reject President Trump, also be voting based on the fact that, when the President of the United States shows support for violent far-right movements, it reminds us of lessons we take from Jewish history?

    Eli Steinberg:

    I think what we are doing here is conflating the why with the what. You seem to be focused on the former instead of the latter.

    There is undoubtedly a long list of justifications people might invoke as they oppose Trump, many of which you cite above. Many of these are justifications which, as you point out, are shared by many progressive Jews.

    But a fundamental Jewish value — in fact, the most fundamental — is that might does not make right. Truth is not the province of, nor is it determined by, the majority alone. If it were, there would not be a Jewish nation to speak of at all. And do we think that stereotypes of Jews become real in the Middle East because 74% of people there believe them to be?

    As a Haredi Jew, I am quite used to the minority within a minority status I’ve been assigned. I embrace it. Because I believe that truth, informed by 3,000 years of tradition in the Torah as transmitted from Sinai, is on my side. But that is not what we are debating here.

    I ask you, is it good for the Jews when a President — any President — sees government as the ultimate decider on what we, as Jews, are or are not allowed to do? Is it good for Jews when a President is determined to put religious institutions on unequal — and even weaker — footing than those which are not?

    Joel Swanson:

    I think our fundamental disagreement here is about whether there is some sort of “objective” standpoint from which to judge what is best for “the Jews” as a community that goes beyond the facts of what the majority of us actually believe. You seem to think there is. But I would argue that ignoring the viewpoint of the vast, overwhelming majority of American Jews is actually less Jewish than listening to that majority voice and heeding it. I would point out that there is a long tradition of truth being determined by the majority in Jewish tradition, so much so that there’s the famous story in the Talmud of a majority of rabbis overruling God on a matter of rabbinic law.

    But that principle aside, I would argue that the ultimate danger is dismissing the concerns of the majority of American Jews about President Trump in the name of some abstract principle that most of us do not believe in. Because the simple facts are these: Eight out of 10 American Jews think antisemitism in the United States has increased in the past five years, which is exactly the time frame during which Trump has been a major figure on the political scene. And more than half of American Jews think Trump and his party bear responsibility for that well-documented rise.

    President Trump has openly signaled his support for the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory, which polls shows fully half of his supporters now believe in, and which experts on far-right extremism say is becoming increasingly antisemitic.

    Is it any wonder that that 60% of American Jews believe Trump “bears at least some responsibility” for rising antisemitic violence, and that survivors of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting feel that “Trump is definitely courting right-wing militias?”

    Doesn’t the greatest danger lie in dismissing our community’s concrete concerns for our immediate safety in the name of some supposed higher abstract principle of “truth”?

    Eli Steinberg: We seem to agree about what we disagree, if about nothing else: I believe Judaism inherently means something, while you contend being Jewish means nothing beyond what people want it to mean.

    I certainly don’t dismiss the concerns they have for American Jewry’s safety, or for the safety of any Jew. That safety has been a real concern for visibly Orthodox Jews like myself living in so-called “blue states” of New York and New Jersey, where we’ve been experiencing violence and other sorts of bigotry and discrimination most overtly and consistently. We know all too well that antisemitism transcends political ideology, finding ways to manifest on both the right and the left.

    So the question remains what it was when we began this exercise: Is Donald Trump good for Jews? If one assigns meaning to Judaism beyond progressive dogma, the answer is clearly yes.

    He has indisputably made Jews around the world more safe physically through his work on the Abraham Accords, the normalization agreements which Israel has signed with an ever-growing number of Arab states. He has made it much safer for Jews to, in the words of George Washington to the Hebrew Congregation of Newport, “continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other Inhabitants; while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and figtree, and there shall be none to make him afraid.” He’s done this by positioning himself as a champion of those of us who have had our rights trampled on, and who are the ones actively being discriminated against.

    It’s from this vantage point of someone who has an acute feeling of what it means to be stigmatized and attacked for being Jewish that I can say that Donald Trump is undoubtedly good for the Jews.

    Joel Swanson: I find it interesting that you begin your description of how President Trump has supposedly made American Jews safer with the Abraham Accords, which by definition concern Israeli and not American Jews. There’s a reason why President Trump believes American Jews are basically displaced Israelis and should be loyal to Israel first and foremost. There’s also a reason why the overwhelming majority of American Jews do not prioritize Israel, a country where we intentionally choose not to live, when we cast our votes.

    But that leads me to my final point, with which I’ll close. You seem to think, implicitly, that Orthodox Jewish opinions on President Trump should count for more than the American Jewish majority, because of adherence to Jewish law. I just fundamentally reject that premise, but I do not believe that means that Jewish identity means nothing for non-Orthodox Jews at all. After all, the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history was not against Orthodox Jews, but against a Conservative synagogue, and it was motivated by the shooter’s fears that Jews are secretly pulling the strings behind immigration to the U.S., a conspiracy theory which, by the way, President Trump has repeated.

    But for many Jews, support for immigrant rights and for organizations like HIAS are not ways of ignoring Jewish values, but of expressing our understanding of Jewish history and persecution through our politics today. The synagogue shooter hated Jews because we overwhelmingly support immigrant rights, and we do that because we know what happens when persecuted refugees are kept out of the US.

    There are so many ways of being Jewish, and we can’t dismiss the majority of American Jews, whose politics are deeply informed by our history and culture, just because we don’t necessarily strictly follow Jewish law. And I’m making that argument, after all, in a publication that is historically culturally Jewish socialist.

    Eli Steinberg:

    If you’ll notice, nowhere in making my point about the Abraham Accords or anywhere in this exchange did I say anything about the interests of the state of Israel. What I said was that Jews worldwide would be safer because of Trump. If the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Arab world makes Jews less safe, normalization makes us safer.

    I’ll close this with: To me, to define what is good for Jews by looking at what a majority of ethnically Jewish Americans thinks is good for them strips the beauty and meaning of Judaism from itself, replacing it with a dark historical prism informed by “our understanding of Jewish history and persecution.” That idea makes me incredibly sad. Being a Jew is about so much more than that.

    But if you define what is “good for Jews” as good for the physical safety of our Jewish brethren around the world, whether in this great country we are privileged to call home or abroad, if you define it as a leader who will stand up and make sure Jews can exercise the First Amendment without fear of reprisal, if you define it as someone who isn’t looking to disadvantage Jews because they adhere to their traditional values, then Donald Trump certainly is good for the Jews.

    They are urging Trump to do the same: “vanquish all of Israel’s enemies and facilitate the building of the Third Temple.”… and you will go down in history as a great leader, perhaps the GOAT (greatest of all time)!

    They always play to the vanity of their dupes and stooges.

    And Trump is a vain and narcissistic man to begin with, so there’s a lot to work with.

    And yes, there is all the symbolism steeped in religious hokum to ‘ooh and ahh’ the gullible.

    But I suspect Trump is utterly irreligious and completely opportunistic, who’d simply use and ride all of that to some practical agenda of his own, while posturing his piety to the dubious.

    It all boils down to his actions, not his words.

    Woodrow Wilson betrayed and destroyed Germany on their behalf

    FDR raped Germany and facilitated the enslavement of Eastern Europe on their behalf

    Nixon – Yom Kippur

    Johnson – Six Day war

    Reagan – Lebanon

    Bush I – Iraq

    Clinton – Serbia

    Bush II – Afghanistan, Iraq

    Obama – Libya, Syria, Donbas

    Trump – no wars, wants to bring troops home from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, NATO…

    I fear his second term could turn out to be “the biggest disaster of our times.”

    The possibility exists. I’d be a fool and a goat not to accept that.

    But we all know that (the utterly, thoroughly corrupt) Biden and the Democrats are perfectly willing to destroy entire nations at the whim and behest of the ((PTB)).

    America is doomed and is going down the tubes. It’s running on fumes and QE. Neither Trump nor anyone else can resurrect this once-great nation from the ravages of the tribe and the stupidity of the American people.

    But will America dash every last drop of its blood and treasure- slaughtering and destroying innocent people who Israel considers inconvenient to their racial supremacy agenda – or will we have a hiatus for the slaughter and orgy of death on the tribe’s behalf of a few years more?

    That’s what it boils down to, as far as I can see.

    And if we’re going to have that hiatus, then from where I’m sitting, it will only happen under Trump. Biden is certain to be their bitch, completely and absolutely. Just look at the ((media)) treatment of Biden vs. Trump.

    Could I be wrong? Of course I could. It’s anyone’s bet what will happen, but I know what will happen under Biden/wokeness/Democrats, because we’ve all seen what Obama/Clinton did, and there’s not been one stinking word of contrition for the unimaginable evils they perpetrated in Libya and Syria and elsewhere, meaning they were just getting started, until this Trumpenstien speed bump to their agendas, (foreign and domestic) caught them off guard.

    And that’s all I’ve got to go on.

    I understand that the magazine article contained admissions from the killers and was entitled “The Shocking Story of Approved Killing in Mississippi”. Perhaps they tried to justify it by saying Emmett Till had provoked his own death, but admit to killing him they did. They were protected from re-arrest by double jeopardy.

    By comparing other presidents`s wars to D. Trump deeds just described why on wide scale the USA get a limited casefire with many worldwide since 2016.
    Yet Trump never was in notable power (deep state/ even parts of his own administration did things against the presidental policies) by his presence, goals/ intents achieved it.

    Quite interesting how certain US governmental bodies/ agencies have the capacity to interfere this much right now:
    – Belarus (orange revolution – jet US have lesser efforts than others)
    – Kyrgizistan (turmoil)
    – Venezuella (starts/ continue(?) again after pause)
    – Poland (feminist uprising)
    – Catalonia (information operations/ psy-ops)
    – UK (lockdown/ “hate crime” legalization advisors)
    As some example.

    Probably Trump concentrate too much on election/ home problems, and no energy left to block those groups in power.

    As soon as democrats get into power casefire will end, things start again with support from the highest places and America became again public enemy N1.

    Yes, those who took Till’s life did admit to it.

    One has to look at the times, in which insults and assaults on whites by blacks were taken much more seriously than they are today.

    Grabbing and fondling a married white woman (not just a “whistle” as some claimed) is just wrong in any culture. Of course, the “civil-rights” crowd of the day attempted to minimize Till’s criminal behavior by calling it a “whistle”.

    A black man who assaulted a white woman received his “punishment” outside the court system which, even then would have exacted a “light” punishment on Till.

    As far as I am concerned, the townspeople who took Till’s life was merely “taking out the garbage.

    As Till’s father was executed by the U S military for multiple rapes, “the apple most certainly did not fall far from the tree”. Till was on the road to following in his father’s footsteps.

    Till would be alive today if he recognized that what he did was wrong and “owned up” to it. His cockiness and refusal to apologize for his own behavior is what sealed his fate.

    Till was out-of-control and was sent to live with his southern relatives. It’s a damn shame that his relatives did not “talk” to him and make him aware of southern sensitivities and the need to act “civilized”.

    As far as I am concerned, the world is a better place without the likes of Emmett Till.

    In one form or another. Only it’s not just North America that is gently going into that goodnight, but Western civilization itself.

    Unfortunately, from our children’s and grandchildren’s perspective, not sure a hiatus of a few more years is really very meaningful.

    Not for the masses, who if you try to awaken them, will often revile and denounce you for it.

    But for your own children, and grandchildren, and any others who you might be able to influence and help, a few more years is time enough to get out.

    There are still many place in the world where your children can flourish and prosper and procreate.

    I have my eye on South America, eventually. But there’s also many countries in Eastern Europe that are sound and sane. I know of a Brit who moved to Romania (or was it Bulgaria, anyways..) some years ago, and loves it.

    I remember visiting Slovakia very briefly a decade or so ago, and I was struck by the place. A sense of community, and a noticeable lack of the simmering hatred and strife of ‘diversity’ that I found intoxicating at the time. (an anecdote.. when a couple of Slovakian men at a gas station noticed the Swiss plates on my rental car, they were super nice, until I told them I was an American, and then like magic, I transformed into a six foot cockroach, from they way they looked at me ; )

    I think it was a sense that there lacked the ineffable foreboding of all Western nations I’ve lived in or visited. We in the West know in our bones, intuitively, that our days are numbered. That the armies of diversity are not going to ebb, and that the hatred and resentment they have for us, will one day manifest in a thousand unspeakable ways. There is a palpable unease in America (and Germany and France and elsewhere in the dying (((murdered))) West, that lingers just beneath the surface.

    Not so in places like Slovakia, at least from my short experience.

    Anyways, a few years is time enough to get (the f-) out. And I advise that for all people of good will in North America (and perhaps Western Europe and nations like Sweden, unless things can be drastically turned around there). But we in America, are doomed.

    I suppose like California, we simply have to do a ‘John Galt’, and give it to them. And let it all descend into a nightmarish, diversity, Balkanized hell on earth.

    Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s latest column, I Repeat: America’s Problems Are Not Political. It’s a pre-election message to the millions of Evangelical Christians…

    As readers should know by now, I adamantly refuse to get sucked into the phony left-right paradigm. I also refuse to get on board the Trump Train. I made a vow to God in 1996 that I would never again support a presidential candidate that I knew would be unfaithful to the Constitution and Natural liberties given us by our Creator.

    As I see it, there are two basic groups of Christians who are voting for Donald Trump this year. 1) Those who have a god-like vision of Trump. They truly believe him to be some sort of a messiah-figure. They believe he is an American Moses. In many respects, Trump has a religious cult following. These people believe everything he says is gospel. They believe everything he does is by divine miracle. 2) Those who are good conservative, freedom-oriented believers, who recognize Trump’s wickedness, but who are willing to overlook those evils, believing, a) Trump is doing enough good things to tolerate those evils and, b) The alternative (Joe Biden) is so repugnant that there is no choice but to support Trump.

    Sound familiar?

    [The rest of the column follows…]

    [MORE]

    The first group is composed of seriously deluded people. The second group could be defined as political pragmatists. Of course, a host of non-believers, conservative in politics, would embrace the philosophy of political pragmatism. But so do many Christians. To them, a vote for the “lesser of two evils” is not a violation of their moral convictions. In fact, they would see such an act as necessary—and even righteous.

    Obviously, the power-elite manipulate political pragmatists during every election cycle—especially at the national level. By stacking the deck in the general election with controlled candidates from both political parties, they ensure that no matter who wins, the establishment’s agenda moves forward unabated, while rank-and-file voters on both sides of the aisle believe they have voted for a difference. It is a masterful strategy.

    I firmly believe that two things are required to see through the above. 1) A studied understanding that there IS a cabal of very powerful people who not only conspire against the Liberty principles of America and Christianity but who are also wealthy and influential enough to actually manipulate—and even control—the major levels of leadership within countries, including their news media, educational, entertainment, medical and religious institutions. 2) A spiritual understanding that America’s strength lies in the moral courage of its pulpits.

    In other words, America’s problems are not political; they are spiritual.

    The forces of evil have hated this country from its inception. From the beginning, America’s core principles—enshrined in our Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights—were rooted in our Creator’s Natural and Revealed Laws. Christian faith and practice are at the heart of America’s heritage.

    The quote commonly attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville may have said it best:

    I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her fertile fields and boundless forests, and it was not there. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her public school system and her institutions of learning, and it was not there. I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution, and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good, and if America ever ceases to be good America will cease to be great.

    That’s it! Goodness precedes greatness. Likewise, evil precedes extinction.

    As I brought out in my message last Sunday at Liberty Fellowship (taken from Micah 6:1 – 8), the national crises that Old Testament Israel and Judah faced were due to the way that God’s people—especially the kings and priests—throughout the two nations had offended God with their vile and wicked conduct.

    This, my friends, is the crux of America’s problems.

    But Jerry Falwell Jr. seemed to speak for most evangelicals when he said, “You don’t choose a president based on how good they are.” I guess not. But we used to.

    There was a time in America when we expected our grocery clerks, our gas station attendants, our school teachers, our mailmen, our business managers, our repairmen, our physicians, our mechanics, our neighbors, and, yes, our civil magistrates, to be good. Does anyone remember Gary Hart? And he was a Democrat.

    Today, not only are pastors and Christians willing to enthusiastically support an immoral reprobate like Donald Trump but they actually believe that this immoral reprobate is America’s only hope. He is America’s only answer. He is God’s salvation for our country.

    Are we not able to stop and see what is happening?

    To a vast number of evangelical Christians, America’s hope rests with politicians—their preferred politicians, of course. To these believers, politicians are far more important to the future of America than preachers. Acts of Congress are more important than Acts of God. Fidelity to a political party is more important than fidelity to Holy Scripture. Salvation comes in the form of Executive Order and Supreme Court decision, not Holy Spirit conviction and God’s immutable truth.

    And in the case of Donald Trump, which came first: A corrupt president who is corrupting the Church or a corrupt Church that created a corrupt president?

    Susan Wright tries to sort it out:

    Others who deemed him [Trump] unfit and a danger to the soul of the nation in those prayer calls have laid their moral objections down at the altar of Trump, for the sake of partisanship.

    It is heartbreaking to see, and with the exception of a very few from those calls, it is a sickness of spirit that has apparently taken deep root.

    Is the evangelical church in America so lost? Is their faith only skin deep? Is there no remnant of faithful believers, ready to stand on God’s holy Word, above any temporal, worldly kingdom?

    At this point let me plainly assert: Ever since Trump was elected in 2016, Christians have been saying that God put Him in office. If that’s true, then God is certainly able to keep Trump in office. But if Biden is elected next week, then it must mean that God wants Biden in office.

    No matter who wins the election next Tuesday, America’s problems will not be solved, because, again, America’s problems are not political. And as long as evangelical Christians continue to put their faith and trust in politicians, our problems will only worsen.

    God eventually destroyed Israel and Judah due to their wickedness. Why should He spare an unrepentant America? And that’s exactly what we have right now: An unrepentant nation and an unrepentant Church.

    For example, I hear Christians constantly say the reason they vote for Donald Trump (or for any other Republican presidential nominee) is because he is “pro-life.” Really?

    As I have pointed out several times: Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans controlled the entire federal government—including the Supreme Court—for the first two years of his administration. G.W. Bush and Republicans controlled the entire federal government for 4.6 years. Did either of them overturn Roe? No, they did not. They did not even try to overturn Roe. Please try telling the 3.5 million babies who were surgically aborted and the 56 million babies who were chemically aborted since Trump took office how “pro-life” he is.

    And never forget that Republican-appointed judges have been a majority on the Supreme Court since before Roe v Wade was decided in 1973. That’s 50 consecutive years of a Republican-dominated Court. That’s right: A Republican-majority court gave us Roe, and 50 years of Republican-majority courts have kept Roe intact. Since when have we ever needed Democrats to legalize abortion-on-demand or keep it legal?

    Our family physician, Dr. Annie Bukacek, gave an excellent presentation pointing out that, as much as anything, support for phony pro-life legislation has been a major impediment to reversing Roe v Wade.

    Furthermore, under Trump’s presidency, more federal tax dollars have been given to Planned Parenthood than when Barack Obama was president. And speaking of federal spending, do we even dare to broach the subject of the national debt and deficit spending? No, because Trump has shattered all the records.

    But here’s what evangelicals never want to talk about: Donald Trump has extended America’s foreign wars beyond that of Obama or GW Bush. Donald Trump drops a bomb somewhere in the world every 12 minutes. You read that right: Every 12 minutes.

    Trump has dropped more bombs and missiles on Middle Eastern countries in a comparable period of time than any modern U.S. President. Presidents Bush, Obama and now Trump have dropped over 300,000 bombs and missiles on Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Trump’s rate of bombing eclipses both Bush and Obama. Trump has dropped almost 200,000 bombs and missiles on Middle Eastern countries in just his first term of office—which surpasses the number of bombs and missiles dropped by Obama during his entire eight-year presidency and is two-thirds of all of the bombs dropped since 9/11.

    Trump began his presidency in a flurry of war, but as the 2020 elections drew nearer, he again started acting like a peace candidate. But why do I even point that out? It matters to almost no one.

    In addition, Trump has escalated the financial and military support for the warmongering Zionist State of Israel, which has murdered untold thousands of innocent Palestinians—both Christians and Muslims—throughout the Middle East.

    I am weary—and I think most of the rest of the world is too—with hearing evangelicals talk about how pro-life they are while at the same time supporting the wanton mass killing of innocent people all over the world via America’s Zionist-controlled military-industrial complex.

    Reading the Old Testament prophets, one will quickly observe that Israel’s perpetual shedding of innocent blood was one of God’s chief indictments against that nation—indictments that eventually led to the nation’s divine execution.

    Why should America be an exception?

    If the evangelical church would lose its misplaced infatuation with and unbiblical enthusiasm for the Zionist State of Israel and use its very powerful collective voice to call for an end to these wars for Israel and slaughter of innocent people, maybe—just maybe—God’s anger against us would be assuaged.

    Trump talks a lot about ending America’s endless wars, but in reality, he’s done nothing about it. And the truth is, most evangelicals would be angry if he actually did end the wars for Israel. As Trump recently told us, the only reason we are fighting in the Middle East is to protect Israel (a nation that is fully capable of defending itself and who’s Arab neighbors—including Iran—pose NO serious threat to it). And much of the impetus for these unconstitutional and immoral wars for Israel is the pressure exerted on the White House and Congress by AIPAC and the rest of the Israeli lobby in Washington, D.C., including the vast majority of evangelical churches.

    When Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, went to pray for her father’s re-election, she went to the grave of the Chabadist cult leader Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Yet, many evangelicals are salivating over the idea that Ivanka might be president in 2024. PLEASE! Doesn’t anyone see what has happened to the Church?

    To understand the terroristic and aggressive history of Zionist Israel—a violent, bloodthirsty history meticulously planned for decades before being implemented—it is imperative that you read the book The Ethnic Cleansing Of Palestine by Ilan Pappe.

    With all of this said, I am not advocating for people to not vote for Donald Trump. I have many friends (at least, I hope they are still friends) and family members who voted for Trump and will vote for him again. I wouldn’t even be upset with evangelicals who voted for Trump four years ago had they made a sincere effort to hold Trump accountable to the principles of constitutional government during his first term in office. But they didn’t. Instead, they covered up, made excuses for, overlooked, justified and condoned the very things that they screamed about when Obama was doing them—and the very things they will scream about again should Biden be elected and he repeats them.

    No! I am not advocating for people to not vote for Donald Trump. Voting is not our problem.

    I am advocating for Christian people to snap out of their idolatrous worship of politics in general and of Republican presidents in particular. I am advocating for Christians to return to the love of the truth of God’s Word. I am advocating for Christians to start putting principle before party. I am advocating for Christians to understand that until the Church gets right with God’s Word, all of the Republican politicians in the world will not be able to solve our problems. I am advocating for Christians to cast off their unbiblical support for the warmongering, antichrist State of Israel. I am advocating for pastors to collect themselves and begin preaching with the courage and convictions of the prophets of old—the kind of preaching that created this country to begin with.

    Remember the words of de Tocqueville: “Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power.”

    If evangelicals were as excited about their pastors proclaiming truth as they are about their politicians pandering lies, we might see something besides an oncoming train at the end of the tunnel.

    I repeat: America’s problems are not political. And that means neither are the solutions.

    P.S. Once again, I am excited to distribute an amazing book about the creation of the State of Israel from an objective historical perspective, written by one of Israel’s most renowned historians.

    The book is entitled The Ethnic Cleansing Of Palestine, by Ilan Pappe.

    This is the true story of how Israel became a state off the blood, rape and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people.

    The State of Israel loves to play the role of victim on the world stage, but the truth is, since WWII, Israel is one of the most murderous aggressor/terror states in the world. Had any other nation on earth committed the atrocities you will find documented in this book, the entire world—especially the United States—would hold it up to global condemnation. But you have likely read or heard absolutely nothing about it. The truth of Israel’s murderous conquest of Palestine is even hidden from the people of Israel themselves.

    Evangelical Christians who are enamored with the modern State of Israel, believing it to be a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, need to take a close, hard look at the brutal history of the Zionist state. Reading this book is the best place to begin.

    Order The Ethnic Cleansing Of Palestine by Ilan Pappe here.

    ‘Scottish Bill Would Criminalize ‘Hate Speech’ in Private Homes’

    Probably Trump concentrate too much on election/ home problems, and no energy left to block those groups in power.

    Jewish supremacists have controlled the levers of power in the West in absolute terms after they destroyed Germany and kept their boot on her neck following WWII.

    North America and Europe and all of Western civilization have been slated for depraved genocide and replacement and blending, and one man in four years is not going to turn that all around.

    They have organizations all over the planet, funded by infinite amounts of fiat ‘money’, and have subverted entire continents (Europe) to their Satanic agenda.

    No one single man is going to turn that all around. An honest Gentile isn’t even allowed to own a cable channel, let alone determine the direction of his nation, once the rot has settled in.

    Well, with the exception of Russia, where a singular, saintly and heroic nationalist was able to outsmart and turn the tables on the looters and destroyers.

    But Trump is no Putin.

    ‘Yes, those who took Till’s life did admit to it.

    ‘One has to look at the times, in which insults and assaults on whites by blacks were taken much more seriously than they are today…’

    It’s an interesting case, and I’m more sympathetic to your point of view than you might assume. For one thing, I’m fairly sure whites were in a minority in the Mississippi Delta back then — as they are now. Obviously, catastrophe would ensue if blacks weren’t kept in line. It did ensue. Paul Kersey keeps us updated on that.

    At the same time, had it been me, I would have settled for really visibly beating hell out of Till, then taking him back home, semiconscious and very seriously hurt.

    The message would be clear. I don’t see the justification for actually killing him.

    I tend to agree with you. Killing Till may have been excessive and “over the top”, but you can be sure that it put the other blacks on notice that such behavior would not be tolerated.
    If Till had lived, you can bet that he would have had such a grudge against “whitey” that he would have struck again. He was”hard-headed” and would not apologize for his transgression against a white woman.
    Although I agree with you that killing Till was excessive, his demise very may well have kept his future criminal acts from occurring.
    Till’s demise made him into a “martyr” of the so-called “civil-rights (for some)” movement and gave the civil-rights carpetbaggers new resolve.
    Best regards,

    I don’t see the justification for actually killing him.

    My understanding is they didn’t intend to kill him, but to give him a beating as punishment. He was defiant and refused to apologize and the beating got worse and became fatal. He wasn’t “lynched” as the term is typically used. He didn’t deserve to be killed, but he set in motion a string of events that led it it, and he passed up every opportunity to redirect those events. Then, as now, de-escalating a situation seems to be against the instincts of blacks.

    No…according to the Look Magazine article, when Till continued to be defiant, dude shot him in the head. I believe the killer testified to that effect.

    Hello Chuck,

    I agree with your justified disgust, but please consider a small litany I posted earlier on this thread.

    Woodrow Wilson betrayed and destroyed Germany on their behalf

    FDR raped Germany and facilitated the enslavement of Eastern Europe on their behalf

    Nixon – Yom Kippur

    Johnson – Six Day war

    Reagan – Lebanon

    Bush I – Iraq

    Clinton – Serbia

    Bush II – Afghanistan, Iraq

    Obama – Libya, Syria, Donbas

    do any of the serial prostrations to Jewish supremacism that Trump is all too happy to stoop to, rise to the level of anything on the above list?

    If he did all the things on that list, (and I’m not saying he didn’t, but I didn’t read them all), would all of them taken together be as egregious as destroying another country and mass-murdering tens or hundreds of thousands, or many more? As I’m certain the war hag, (or Biden and co. will do) once in the White House?

    Trump is bad, (they’re all [Merkel, Macron, Johnson, etc..] bad), but all we have these days is the lesser of evils. Alas.

    Ah, I see. Now, I know where you’re coming from.

    I grew up poor and working class. Nothing in and of itself to whine or complain about.

    But Geo, when they ‘authorized’ Affirmative Action, and tossed us working class White men under the racial spoils bus, to mollify the rampaging Negros, by giving them the little that we had, I lost all respect or fealty to this fucked up nation of cowards and corruption.

    “Justice for all’, my White arse.

    Do you think that since now this shithole of a nation of cowards and corruption might need some dupes to sacrifice themselves to set things right, that I’d be the one to step into the breach, so that the wealthy and privileged Whites, (who tossed us under the bus), can find some nice cannon fodder to die for them, that I’d be willing?

    That’s a rhetorical question, as I’m sure you noticed.

    If there was a chance to battle the fiend in a fair contest, without the ZUS being the beneficiary, then that’d be one thing. But as far as I’m concerned, it’s me and my extended family that I’m worried about.

    Not the Whites of California or liberals in Washington or Oregon, that I give a fuck about.

    They should have gotten out years ago, as is my plan.

    And it’s what I advise to all people of good will. Get out. America is fucked, and it’s going down. And most of the people (but certainly not all) more or less deserve to taste the bitter fruits of their apathy and complacency and arrogant disregard for those whom they felt they could sacrifice without consequence.

    I was born and raised in neighboring Fairfax County. Back in the late 90’s, it was oppressive towards conservatives. I know, I went to FCPS and was threatened by black “students” for expressing my viewpoints, on more than one occasion. Of course nothing was done and even then black equaled good, white equaled bad. None of this surprises me, and it will only get worse. All of the whites that fled Fairfax County’s diversity will be getting it good and hard. And frankly, I don’t feel any sympathy for the majority of them. They certainly didn’t listen to me when I tried to warn them and they certainly didn’t defend me. Now they can rot. The only thing that breaks my heart is them destroying Confederate heritage. That is MY heritage and I will always be proud of my ancestors. They can tear down all traces of them, but they will never ever be anything resembling their equals and they know it. Their own worst enemies are themselves.

    Well, the dividing line between that and killing someone is rather thin. Sometimes doctors are present during torture sessions to ensure that the object of the exercise does not slip away due to heart failure, but this is not always enough. Till was a young, strong individual but what they did was clearly more than enough to kill him.

    The idea that it deterred others, if that was the goal, was not achieved. Basically it undermined Jim Crow.

    They did shoot him in the head. It wasn’t as if they were just hitting him and got a little too vigorous. Pretty clearly, they’d given up on the beating and intimidation angle.

    Phil Girardi – since you are such an expert on Israel and Jews (thank god for that), were you aware of the historical origins of Critical Race Theory? If not, it is called the Frankfort School and it was founded by jewish academics who escaped Germany in the 30s, came to Columbia University and spread out from there to other schools and their acolytes and eventually evolved or rather devolved into Critical Race Theory.

    Fascinating insights/analysis. If recall serves, Freud pointed out that civilization is a conspiracy.

    Contemporary America has already gone trans-urban. Census figures have revealed that the majority of Americans live in suburbs, exurbs and other exudations of the urban core, itself now imploding under the manifest pressures of the plandemic and the lockdowns. Core city office buildings are virtually abandoned now as a majority of the cubicle-dwellers are now attentively chained to their computers in their homes. The fallout in the city centers is a massive dissolution of the restaurant, hotel and other aspects of the hospitality industry.

    The Frank Frank is correct in his assessment regarding parasitism. Huge numbers of employed Americans are not engaged in productive work. Rather, they are attorneys, CPA’s, executives of many orders and levels, bureaupaths, particularly of the executive/administrative variety, edjumacasion administrators, psychologists, sociologists, court-historians, “kept” scientists and technicians employed in the WarDefense and “Intelligence” industries.

    Now take a look at Loudon County, Virginia, located right there in the heart of the beast—the leading edge for the Di$trict of Corruption. How many of its residents are sucking up the shekels as administrative minions for the bloated regime in Urination’s Capital? THEIR children are being subjected to the idiotology of reverse-racism in the local school system. What delicious irony. Sorry about the impact on Phil Giraldi and other “indigenous” Virginians…too many Carpetbaggers in the neighborhood.

    Some number of decades before Columbus landed on Hispaniola, the Mayan civilization a few hundred miles westwards simply gave up the ghost. Some currently unknown factor impelled them to abandon their highly-developed urban centers and move out into the bush. What happened? Speculations are rife. In “Ancient Arts of the Americas”, a book I have owned for a few decades, there were a considerable number of illustrations. One of them was a photograph of a man inside what was obviously a space-ship control center. Curious, eh? Another fillip regarding the Mayans was their cosmographic insights which combined with their amazing calendar. These things make me wonder about the decisions that society took in abandoning their “civilization”. Were they aware of the ultimate fruits of urbanized concentrations of hyper-specialized automatons?

  163. @Dead Hipster Society

    First off, great screen name.

    Secondly, yes, I agree. Much the same way that “hate speech” is a Jew construct that was brought to us by the kikes that run the (((ADL))). Make sure everyone you know is aware that the Yids at said ADL have deemed “Build the wall” as “hate speech”, by the way.
