Jews stoking White infighting

A NY Times op-ed:
White Supremacists Stole My Rabbi Husband’s Identity
The scheme, cooked up by 4chan trolls, sought to stoke Jewish infighting.
By Avital Chizhik-Goldschmidt
Ms. Chizhik-Goldschmidt is an editor at The Forward. [a Jewish publication] ...

It was a Twitter profile with the name “David Goldberg.” The bio read: “Orthodox Jew against the apartheid state of Israel.” But the photograph was of my Jerusalem-born husband, Benjamin. ...

In other words, these avatars with fringe views were created with the express purpose of stoking ferocious fighting within the Jewish community by highlighting its most sensitive topics: Israel, Donald Trump and anti-Zionist Jews. ...

Those who seek to exploit this tension seek to turn the American Jewish community against itself. They threaten to permanently damage the communal consensus that fostered the emerging state of Israel in 1948, as Jews worldwide rallied for the right to a homeland in the wake of the Holocaust. And they shake the core of the very community that banded together, across all political and religious differences, to demand freedom for Soviet Jewry, an effort which allowed my own parents to escape from behind the Iron Curtain to freedom in 1979.
She is obviously a Jewish supremacist who thinks Jews should have more rights than anyone else. She says Jews have a right to a homeland, but not Whites. She thinks Soviet Jews had a right to emigrate, but not others.

One guy makes fun of her husband on Twitter, and she launches into a hysterical attack on some White conspiracy.

And she thinks Jews should stick together in their fights with White people.

If some White guy ever expresses the opinion that Whites should stick together, the NY Times and Jewish publications will attack him with their highest lever of ferocity.

If there is one common thread to NY Times editorial policy, it is to seek ethnic conflict and infighting among non-Jews. It does this on a daily basis. For example:
LexisNexis shows results for 190 NYT articles referring to African American enslavement in 2012. That number grew to 805 in 2018.
Why all the slavery articles? Just think about that.

This op-ed is just a complaint that such a policy would be used against Jews.

But no one is allowed to criticize the Jews. The Canadian Press reports:
The editor of a Toronto-based publication was handed the maximum one-year jail sentence on Thursday for promoting hatred against women and Jews.

In sentencing James Sears, Ontario court Judge Richard Blouin said he would have handed down a much stiffer sentence had the law allowed.
Here is the offending site. Some of it is funny. It is not clear how serious he is. In the USA, he would be protected under the First Amendment.

What Jews have learned from diasporic living

NY Times Jewess opinion writer Bari Weiss writes:
The major debate tearing apart the American Jewish community on this particular Wednesday is whether or not the 45th president of the United States just accused them — us — of disloyalty to Israel and the Jewish people or of disloyalty to the Republican Party and the man who has remade it in his image. ...

I’ve been around enough tables with pro-Trump Jews to strongly suspect ...

If 2,000 years of diasporic living has taught the Jews anything, it’s that an existence that is contingent upon the kindness of strangers is never too safe or too long lasting. ...

The Jews of America are in the midst of a political crisis, sped along at breakneck speed by a president asking us, bluntly, to choose. Vote for a party whose base seems increasingly in thrall with newbie politicians who are unapologetic supporters of the B.D.S. movement, a new face of old anti-Semitism, even as the party’s leadership remains pro-Israel. Or vote for the party led by [Trump] ...

To preserve all that has ever made American Jews — and America — great, we cannot allow this man to tear us apart.
So Trump is the most pro-Jewish President we have ever had, lots of Jews are pro-Trump, the Democrat Party is being taken over by anti-Semites, and Jews don't trust non-Jews for anything.

But Jews have to stick together, and that means opposing Trump.

Of course this does not really explain why so many influential Jews hate Trump so much. I am just posting it as the NY Times Jewish explanation.

How Anthropology became Cultural Marxism

NPR Radio reports:
The Renegade Anthropologists Who Reinvented How We Think About Race & Gender

In his new book, 'Gods of the Upper Air,' Charles King tells the story of Franz Boas, Margaret Mead and the other 20th century anthropologists who challenged outdated notions of race, class and gender.
This is about how Jewish-led anthropologists help make white-hatred academically respectable, in the last century. They kept using terms like "outdated" to describe the views that prevailed previously, but they never found any scientific evidence that those views were shown to be wrong.

They studied primitive tribes, but it was all a ruse for making commentary on American society, and promoting their weirdo political and social ideas, according to the author.

The author also described bisexuality and infidelity on the part of Mead, and how she cooked up stories about primitive tribes in order to justify her feminist politics.

These were the most respected anthropologists of the XX century. The more I learn about these academic frauds, the harder it is to take the subject seriously.

What the interview does not address is why Jews would be so committed to this Boasian ideology, and why such quackery would be academically respected.

For alternate views, see Metapedia or Kevin MacDonald. They say, for example, that Boas was opposed to genetic research, as that could disprove his silly ideas about human nature.

Jews are paranoid about green cartoon frogs

The NY Times reports:
HONG KONG — Ask the Anti-Defamation League, and they will tell you Pepe the Frog is a hate symbol, a cheerleader of racism and anti-Semitism, a friend of alt-right extremists. The sad, green frog is widely viewed as toxic across the world, a signal of a sinister and dangerous worldview.

So it can be a bit jarring to see Pepe in his new role: a pro-democracy freedom fighter in the Hong Kong protests, siding with the people in their struggle against an authoritarian state. The protesters here hold signs with his image, use stickers of him in messaging apps and discussion forums, and even spray paint his face on walls. ...

Few Hong Kongers have shown awareness online about Pepe’s sinister side.
I post this as an example of weirdo Jewish thinking. The Jews at the Anti-Defamation League and the NY Times have some kind of paranoid obsession with green cartoon frogs and other such symbols. There is no other group that would raise a fuss about a few people on the other side of the world drawing cartoon frogs. It is bizarre.

Hating white people at the farmers market

A NY Times article doxes and harasses some farmers at a market:
Schooner Creek’s owners deny being white supremacists, and say they keep their political beliefs out of the market. They have said on social media that they are being harassed, demonized and hounded out of the farmers’ market by left-wing activists because of “a handful of mildly pro-white comments.” They have not been accused of any wrongdoing or violence, and say they are the ones who have become victims of “the cult of the left.”
This is an amazing story of white people being hated for their skin color. Nobody would criticize non-whites for similar views.

As the Jewish media keeps expanding its definition of white supremacy, it appears that the entire farmers market business is white supremacist. Primarily liberal white people attend farmers markets. My hunch is that a lot of them go there specifically because they wish to shop in a community of white people.

The ancient Egyptians were Caucasians

From a NY Times essay last year:
Among the most important to Douglass was Morton’s claim that ancient Egyptians were white. To support his claim that black people were inferior, Morton needed to explain away the fact that ancient Egyptians were Africans, since if they were, it meant that people of African descent had the potential for similar greatness. As proof, Morton noted that the Bible made no mention of Egyptians’ color.

Douglass would have none of it.

He cited text after text, all written by respected European scientists, that noted that ancient Egyptians bore a striking resemblance to modern-day Africans. But more important, he argued that racial descriptors were not mentioned in the Bible because, at that historical moment, race did not exist. It was, as we now say, a social construct, something better understood as a product of history rather than of science.
The article strongly implies that Douglass was right, and the pseudoscientific slavery apologists of his day were wrong.

But he was not right. See the Wikipedia articles on DNA history of Egypt and Ancient Egyptian race controversy. The ancient Egyptians might be classified as MENA today, and more caucasian than today's Egyptians, according to DNA tests. They were not negroes.

Wikipedia does discount these findings by saying:
Since the second half of the 20th century, most anthropologists have rejected the notion of race as having any validity in the study of human biology.
This is like saying ornithologists (bird scientists) refuse to accept the division of birds into species. So what would they be studying, if they won't classify birds into groups?

China forces Moslems into re-education camps

The Wikipedia article on the Chinese Xinjiang re-education camps says:
In July 2019, the United Nations ambassadors from 22 nations, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the United Kingdom,[42] signed a letter condemning China's mistreatment of the Uyghurs as well as its mistreatment of other minority groups, urging the Chinese government to close the camps.[43][44] On the other hand, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Egypt, Russia, North Korea, the Philippines, Pakistan, Iran, Syria and Palestine[45] are among 50 other states supported China's policy in Xinjiang.[42][46] The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, has applauded China for its public safety and counter-terrorism measures, saying that it has a "right to fight against terrorism."[47]
So Western countries are poking into Chinese internal matters and sticking up for Chinese Moslems, while the Moslem countries are siding with the Chinese government?

Something is fishy here. China may believe that Islam is a long-term threat. It may be right. Maybe Western countries want to undermine China by encouraging religious conflict. I don't know.

Murray wants to abolish the SAT

Charles Murray has probably done more than anyone to convince the public about the importance of IQ tests, as he argued in The Bell Curve that they were correlated with success in many ways.

Now he argues for abolishing them:
Hence the final reason for getting rid of the SAT: knowing those scores is too dispiriting for those who do poorly and too inspiriting for those who do well. In an age when intellectual talent is increasingly concentrated among young people who are also privileged economically and socially, the last thing we need are numbers that give these very, very lucky kids a sense of entitlement.
That SAT test has already become less of an IQ test.

Note that this is not the argument that some make that IQ tests are meaningless. His argument is based on IQ tests being too important.

There are similar sorts of arguments against genetic testing. Some say the tests are useless, while others are frightened of the possibility that the tests will tell them more than they want to know about themselves.

Jews force Anglicans to rewrite prayers

The Canada Jewish News reports:
The Anglican Church of Canada’s move to expunge a prayer for the conversion of the Jews from its liturgy is being hailed as a milestone. ...

Changing the prayer exhorts Anglicans “to acknowledge and repent of the church’s participation in anti-Semitism, to stop singling out Jews as a target for our evangelistic efforts, and to assume a humble and reconciliatory stance with our Jewish elders in the faith,” Rev. Myers said in a statement. “It also invites Anglicans to be ever mindful of Christianity’s deep Jewish roots.” ...

The prayer “For reconciliation with the Jews” was a joint effort between the Anglican Church, the Prayer Book Society of Canada, and the Canadian Rabbinic Caucus, an affiliate of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs.
This is astounding. What religion would ever allow another religion to rewrite its prayers?

I found this on the Daily Stormer, which denigrates Jews all the time. It appears to be right this time. Currently it also reports that 72 American congressmen on a trip to Israel to show their "unconditional" and "unwavering" support for the Jewish state.

Jews not only forced the old language removed, but insert new language that is incredibly offensive. I cannot understand why the Anglican would tolerate this.

No other religion, besides Judaism, would ever do anything this offensive. Do other religions in Canada take orders from the Jews?

They say it is anti-Semitic to attribute power to Jews, but this is way more power than I thought anyone had.

Dems want to eliminate our American culture

The top NY Times story reports:
A few days after, Rush Limbaugh issued a grim prognosis to his millions of radio listeners: If the immigrants from Central America weren’t stopped, the United States would lose its identity. “The objective is to dilute and eventually eliminate or erase what is known as the distinct or unique American culture,” Mr. Limbaugh said, adding: “This is why people call this an invasion.”

There is a striking degree of overlap between the words of right-wing media personalities and the language used by the Texas man who confessed to killing 22 people at a Walmart in El Paso this month. In a 2,300-word screed posted on the website 8chan, the killer wrote that he was “simply defending my country from cultural and ethnic replacement brought on by an invasion.”
If ten people say that it is raining, then maybe it is because it really is raining.

Here is a typical NY Times essay advocating replacing the American White population with non-whites. This view now permeates all the Democrat presidential candidates. They seek to use immigration and other means to invade America and replace Whites.

I am against killing people at Walmart, of course, but you have to expect Americans to describe what is happening.

Note how it deceptively says "screed posted on the website 8chan". The killer posted the essay on Instagram, a part of Facebook, and not to 8chan. The NY Times wants to ban free speech sites like 8chan, while Facebook gets a pass as long as it is run by leftists who promise to censor right-wingers.

BDS argument is just Leftist Buzzwords

The Nation is the most respectable far-left American publication. I assume that it is run by Jewish Commies. It reads that way.

Now it has an article by Omar Barghouti on Why Americans Should Support BDS
BDS categorically opposes all forms of racism, including anti-Semitism. ...

H.Res. 246 also includes a specific smear against me that has been pushed by Israel lobby groups like AIPAC by quoting a single, out-of-context sentence from a talk I gave in 2013. The same false assertion is repeated in a similar Senate Resolution, S. Res. 120.

In that talk, I advocated for a single democratic state that recognizes and accepts Jewish Israelis as equal citizens and full partners in building and developing a new shared society, free from all colonial subjugation and racial discrimination and separating church and state. Everyone, including repatriated Palestinian refugees, would be entitled to equal rights regardless of ethnic, religious, gender, sexual, or other identity. Any exclusionary, supremacist “Muslim state,” “Christian state,” or “Jewish state,” I argued, would by definition deny equal rights to citizens of different identities and foreclose the possibility of a true democracy, which are conditions for a just and sustainable peace.
He is some sort of Arab who moved to Israel when he married an Israeli Arab. I guess he would be a citizen of Israel if he were Jewish.

Of course this is just Leftist doublespeak. There is no actual argument here. It takes advantage of people being conditioned to like or dislike certain buzzwords. If Israel were a "true democracy" and majority Muslim, then it would be an exclusionary supremacist Muslim state. This has been proved over 1000 years and in 50+ countries.

Jewish Leftists go along with these ridiculous arguments because they think that America is a Christian state that must be destroyed. If nothing else, BDS has forced Israel to explicitly defend being a Jewish state.

The NY Times and other mainstream publications regularly have watered-down versions of these arguments. Currently, the NY
Times has an essay co-authored by Commie Angela Davis about some black woman who just died:
Her canon demonstrates the absolute and destructive absurdity of any position that would claim others lesser than or unequal. ...

In 1995, she compelled us to heed the signs of people who “construct an internal enemy as both focus and diversion” and who “isolate and demonize that enemy by unleashing and protecting the utterance of overt and coded name-calling and verbal abuse.” These, she warned, were the first steps toward “a final solution.” ...

During the 2008 presidential campaign, she endorsed Barack Obama, expressing her admiration for his “creative imagination which coupled with brilliance equals wisdom.”
Really? Is that why blacks voted for Obama?

White supremacy is a hoax

From the Huff Post:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson announced on Tuesday that America doesn’t have a white supremacist problem and called the very notion a “hoax.”

CNN’s Don Lemon couldn’t believe it.

Lemon rolled a clip of Carlson’s rant, in which he claimed “the whole thing is a lie” and insisted that white supremacy is “not a real problem in America.”

Lemon came back from the clip with nothing to say. After six seconds of silence, he let out an exasperated sigh.

“Was that not the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard?” he finally asked.
Tucker is right. White supremacy is a hoax, like the hoax that Russia interfered with our election. There are no white supremacists in the public eye.

The video clip showed the Russian Jewish Trump-hater Max Boot saying that Trump cannot now condemn white supremacy (as Trump just did).

I think that the problem here is that the Left has gone berserk with name-calling. Anyone who is against open borders is compared to Hitler and called a white supremacist. Likewise for anyone who praises George Washington or our Constitution.

The Democrats have chosen to make the 2020 election all about race. You either hate White men and vote Democrat, or you are a Nazi and vote Republican. Biden and the other Dems now openly say that they want to replace the White population with non-whites and Third World migrants.

Central to the debate is the issue is what America is all about. Many say that America is an idea, and should be open to anyone embracing the idea. If so, what is that idea? According to the Dems today, America was founded on the idea of white supremacy. If that were true, then we should have some white supremacist policies. But of course the Dems argue that they are anti-American in that sense, and they want to transform America into something else.

Feminists blame manosphere for shootings

From an article in The Atlantic:
The idea that feminism is decadent, and is destroying Western civilization; the idea that women’s natural role is to have children, and to be subservient to men; the idea that strong men are needed to save the world through violence — all of these arguments are found across extremist websites, and in the words of shooters themselves. Anti-feminist rhetoric is a powerful gateway to violent white nationalism, and it is calculated to appeal to the demographic overwhelmingly responsible for mass shootings: young white men.

The 28-year-old man awaiting trial over the Christchurch massacre wrote a self-justifying screed titled “The Great Replacement.” It begins: “It’s the birthrates. It’s the birthrates. It’s the birthrates.” ...

Then there’s the sexual revolution. Put simply, Western women are largely choosing for themselves whom to have sex with, rather than having their lives dictated by families, religion, or the state. ...

Finally, anti-feminist ideology has the capacity to become a 360-degree conspiracy theory, similar to the kind of anti-Semitic ideas that flourish online. Feminists are presumed to influence all government decisions, even though women are still underrepresented at every level of elected office. Across the fractured, diverse outposts of the manosphere, “one of the few things they will agree on is a conspiratorial view of feminism,” Murdoch says. “They don’t consider that it was ever a movement for gender equality. They think it was a guise to assert control over men.”
Dalrock adds:
The article doesn’t even try to tie mass shooters to any manosphere sites. Instead, it equates antifeminism in general with mass murderers. Ironically it simultaneously claims that:

By definition being antifeminist is a heretical radical fringe position. All right minded people today enthusiastically support feminism, and only dangerous and insane people would dare to oppose feminism. 
Feminism is not a powerful force in our society. If you believe it is a powerful force in our society you are peddling an insane conspiracy theory because as feminism teaches us, women are powerless in our patriarchal society.
This is just part of a hot new trend to blame white males for everything.

Gillette attacked masculinity in a controversial ad campaign a few months ago, and now the results are in -- it cost the company $8 billion!

I don't know how much of this is real, but this site gives examples of Jews blaming whites for everything, and then saying that they are Jewish, not white. They pretend to be oppressed minorities, whenever that is politically advantageous. As an example of this nonsense, actress Rosanna Arquette tweeted that she was ashamed of white people, whines about being a victim, and goes on the blame Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein. She should admit that she is ashamed of being Jewish, not white.

Democrats are extremely racially divisive

Obama official Susan Rice writes in a NY Times op-ed:
The president’s appalling goal, quite simply, is to pit Americans against one another for crass political purposes as well as, it seems, to vent his unabashed personal prejudice.
This is crazy. The Dems keep bringing up issues like slavery reparations, forced racial busing, white privilege, censoring the internet for racial opinions, etc.

Trump hardly says anything about race, except when he is forced to. That is, unless you equate any opposition to open borders to be white supremacist, which is where the Dems are headed.

Biden is the Democrat frontrunner, even tho he has nothing going for him except that he was VP to a half-black President. Kamala Harris has even less going for her, except her oddball racial background.

The white candidates act embarrassed to be white, such as Gillibrand saying in the debate:
And I can talk to those white women in the suburbs that voted for Trump and explain to them what white privilege actually is, that when their son is walking down a street with a bag of M&Ms in his pocket, wearing a hoodie, his whiteness is what protects him from not being shot.
I get the impression that her audience will be happier if more white guys get shot.

According to reports, the El Paso shooter was not triggered by anything Trump said, but by the Democrat debate where they all promised free health care for illegal aliens.

Rice's son is president of the Stanford College Republicans.

The Democrat racial divisiveness seeks to elect Democrats, of course. Along the way, they seek gun control, open borders, and censored speech.

As an example of the latter, 8chan has been shut down, even tho none of the shooters is known to have posted to 8chan or even read anything there. It is just a discussion site.

Here is another example of censorship:
On Friday I appeared live on Red Ice TV’s YouTube channel and was informed that due to YouTube’s increasingly censorious policies, I must refrain from using the “R” word—“replacement”—when referring to the fact that only European-majority nations are being forced to dilute their ethnic majorities with nonwhite immigration. It’s been said a billion times, but no one in authority is calling for Africa to become less black or for China to become less Chinese.
He goes on to give examples of Twitter and Wikipedia blocking discussion of immigrants replacing natives.

Leftist professors under mind control

Left-wing intellectuals are really hard to understand sometimes. Here is an example of strange thinking.

Leftist-atheist-evolutionist professor Jerry Coyne writes:
1.) You are always acting under compulsion, whether someone holds a gun to your head, you’re mentally ill, or you’re acting according to what your brain has made you do. As Sam Harris notes, your deciding to drink a glass of milk was just as compelled as your doing something bad under external force. You don’t feel compelled when you do something like walk one way to work rather than another, but you are, because you’re simply following the logic of your brain circuitry and the “decision” it’s spit out.

4.) The concept of “moral responsibility” is injurious because it underlies a vindictive and retributive view of punishment.
At least he believes in free speech. That makes him better than a lot of other professors.

Outside academia, if someone says that voices in his head are making his decisions, then he gets diagnosed with schizophrenia.

I believe that Coyne and Harris are sincere when they say that they are compelled to do what they do. That means that they are compelled to convince everyone else that they have no free will either.

El Paso Walmart Manifesto

CNN was babbling about white supremacy all day, and trying to find ways to blame it on Pres. Trump. The root of the issue was the El Paso Walmart manifesto. (Also here.)

The document is not really about white supremacy or Trump at all. Here are excerpts:
This attack is a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas. They are the instigators, not me. I am simply defending my country from cultural and ethnic replacement brought on by an invasion. ...

In short, America is rotting from the inside out, and peaceful means to stop this seem to be nearly impossible. The inconvenient truth is that our leaders, both Democrat AND Republican, have been failing us for decades. They are either complacent or involved in one of the biggest betrayals of the American public in our history. The takeover of the United States government by unchecked corporations. ...

In short, immigration can only be detrimental to the future of America. Continued immigration will make one of the biggest issues of our time, automation, so much worse. Some sources say that in under two decades, half of American jobs will be lost to it. ...

Even though new migrants do the dirty work, their kids typically don’t. They want to live the AmericanDream which is why they get college degrees and fill higher-paying skilled positions. This is why corporations lobby for even more illegal immigration even after decades of it of happening. They need to keep replenishing the low-skilled labor pool. ...

The American lifestyle affords our citizens an incredible quality of life. However, our lifestyle is destroying the environment of our country. The decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden for future generations. Corporations are heading the destruction of our environment by shamelessly overharvesting resources. ...

America can only be destroyed from the inside-out. If our country falls, it will be the fault of traitors. ...

I am against race mixing because it destroys genetic diversity and creates identity problems. Also because it’s completely unnecessary and selfish. ... The best solution to this for now would be to divide America into a confederacy of territories with at least 1 territory for each race. This physical separation would nearly eliminate race mixing and improve social unity by granting each race self-determination within their respective territory(s). ...

I putting this here because some people will blame the President or certain presidential candidates for the attack. This is not the case. I know that the media will probably call me a white supremacist anyway and blame Trump’s rhetoric. The media is infamous for fake news. Their reaction to this attack will likely just confirm that.
Yes, the media reaction confirms that.

It seems crazy to have these views and think that shooting up a Walmart will advance the cause. But it also seems crazy for CNN to read this and invite Trump-haters to talk about censoring white supremacists all day. The Ohio shooter turned out to be a leftist Satanist. The Gilroy garlic shooter also seemed to be some sort of Satanist.

If they want to talk about what motivated the El Paso shooting, then they should address what he had to say. It appears to me that they have no defense against his arguments.

I agree with the guy that automation will destroy a lot of jobs, and that immigration will make the problem worse. In a few years, people will wonder why we imported millions of people to do low skill jobs, just as those jobs were being automated. I have expressed that opinion on this blog.

I don't know whether to call him right-wing or left-wing. His main complaints are against unchecked corporations and environmental destruction, and those are usually left-wing issues.

Sometimes I wonder what CNN is trying to do. Anyone can download the manifesto and see that CNN is lying about it. But then anyone can download the Mueller report and see that CNN has been lying about that investigation for a couple of years. Sometimes I think that CNN is trying to provoke a civil war, because it would be good for business.

Brooks falls for a wacky new-age nutcase

A Jewish mag reports:
NEW YORK (JTA) — Had she received a better Jewish education, Marianne Williamson says, she might have become a rabbi.

Instead, Williamson has become one of the country’s best-known New Age self-help gurus, reaching millions of people over more than three decades in the public eye. She counts Oprah and Deepak Chopra among her pals.

Now Williamson, the author of a dozen books — four of them New York Times best-sellers — wants to extend her influence to the highest office in the land: She has announced a bid to run for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States.
She denies that she is a “wacky new-age nutcase”, but she would be our least educated and least experienced President ever.

NY Times columnist David Brooks eats the dog food:
Marianne Williamson Knows How to Beat Trump

We need an uprising of decency. ...

This election is about who we are as a people, our national character. This election is about the moral atmosphere in which we raise our children.

Trump is a cultural revolutionary, not a policy revolutionary. He operates and is subtly changing America at a much deeper level. ...

The Democrats have not risen to the largeness of this moment. They don’t know how to speak on this level. They don’t even have the language to articulate what Trump represents and what needs to be done.
Brooks said the same thing on PBS TV and NPR radio.

This is just crazy Jew-speak. No one else talks this way.

When he says "we are as a people, our national character", he talking about Jewish control. And "moral atmosphere" refers to his anti-Christian beliefs.

I have been reading and listening to Brooks's anti-Trump rants for several years now, and it is usually like this. He babbles in bland generalities, with no specifics. It is as if Brooks is part of some elitist plan to take over America, and he is just upset that Trump is standing in the way.

Fellow Jewish Trump-hater NY Times columnist Roger Cohen wrote a similar column, and it is more explicitly anti-white-Christian.

Critiquing White Genocide

Thomas Dalton writes:
Of late, much has been made in the alt-right press of the idea of “White genocide” as an existential threat posed by mainstream society, aimed at the obliteration of Whites in their formerly dominant homelands in Europe and North America. ...

While it is true that White rule in many nations is under threat, I think it is premature—at least in the coming decades—to decry the physical elimination of Whites anywhere. ... Real threats to White interests risk getting subsumed by bogus — or at least exaggerated — dangers.
He describes the commonly accepted definitions of the term "genocide", and goes on to propose a series of policies that would avert a White genocide.

Where he is not convincing is in his saying that his proposals are plausible. They would result in Civil War 2.0.

But then maybe we are headed for Civil War 2.0 anyway. The Democrats are promising open borders, and free health care for illegals. Those proposals would also have catastrophic consequences.

I think Dalton is on the wrong path, but so is everyone else. We need open public debate on these issues to get some constructive resolution.

Update: Dalton responds to critics.

Defining Nationality

NATIONALITY



1828 Webster's Dictionary

National character; also, the quality of being national, or strongly attached to ones own nation.



1911 Encyclopedia Brittanica

A somewhat vague term, used strictly in international law (see International Law, Private) for the status of membership in a nation or state (for the conditions of which see State, Allegiance, Naturalization, Alien), and in a more extended sense in political discussion to denote an aggregation of persons claiming to represent a racial, territorial or some other bond of unity, though not necessarily recognized as an independent political entity. In this latter sense the word has often been applied to such people as the Irish, the Armenians and the Czechs. A "nationality" in this connexion represents a common feeling and an organized claim rather than distinct attributes which can be comprised in a strict definition.



2019 Wikipedia

Nationality is a legal relationship between an individual person and a state. Nationality affords the state jurisdiction over the person and affords the person the protection of the state. What these rights and duties are varies from state to state.

(As noted by Vox Day.)

Fight against Whites is the defining issue

The Democrats are turning the USA non-white, and they have apparently decided that we have reached a turning point. They just don't need Whites anymore, and they can win by going full anti-White. All they need to do is the pick up the new non-white voters.

NY Times op-ed:
Today, there is still great ambivalence about making the fight against [White people] a defining issue in the 2020 election. ...

In every presidential election for the past 50 years, a majority of white voters have voted against the Democratic nominee, and the overwhelming majority of people of color have sided with the Democrats. ...

As people of color become a bigger portion of the voting population, the number of white votes required to win steadily shrinks. In fact, a group of think tanks released a report last year showing that if all of the country’s racial groups replicate in 2020 their voter turnout and partisan preferences of 2016 — essentially a “do-over” — the Democrats would win Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, just because of the demographic changes over the past four years.

By doubling down on racial diversity and standing strong against [White people], Democrats would align with population changes and be able to expand the electoral map by credibly contesting the key Southern and Southwestern states of North Carolina, Georgia and Arizona, among others. ...

America is getting browner by the hour, given that every single day, as of 2016 data, the United States population increases by 8,000 people and 90 percent of that growth comes from people of color. Moreover, an additional seven million teenagers of color will have turned 18 since the 2016 election. With this demographic revolution transforming the country, Democrats do not actually have to increase their level of white support

Lefist opposition to Israel, explained

The NY Times reports:
On Tuesday, the House overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning the campaign, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. ...

Here are answers to some of the most difficult questions.
As usual, this Jewish newspaper acts as if it has the authority to tell everyone how to think.
Israel’s government has embraced two seemingly opposing views, boasting on the world stage that B.D.S. is having no effect while warning Israelis that it is a strategic threat. In domestic politics, exaggerating the threat of B.D.S. adds to the sense that Israel is besieged and that the Palestinians are not really interested in peacemaking, bolstering right-wing arguments for continued expansion of Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
Those things are probably all true. The BDS has done nothing, but it is a strategic threat because it ties Israeli/Jewish head in knots like nothing else.
Anti-Semitism has increased in Europe because of numerous factors, including globalization, populism, loss of national identity and the perceived oppression of Palestinians by Israel.
That is ridiculous. No one is anti-Semitic for any of those reasons. The anti-Semitism comes from the rise of Islam, which teaches that Jews are apes and pigs, and for increasing Jewish political and cultural influence, which is so contrary to European values.
But many Israelis and American Jews say it is, using the so-called three-Ds test to distinguish fair criticism of Israel from anti-Semitism: Does the criticism delegitimize Israel, apply a double standard or demonize it?
So says the newspaper that makes daily attempts to delegitimize America, apply double standards, and demonize non-Jews.

I do not agree with the BDS movement, or any of the motives behind it that are listed in this article. It is a kooky left-wing movement. A Jewish leftist writes:
B.D.S. has become a purity test of sorts for progressives in certain corners of American society — a defining part of what it means to be woke.
But I suspect that there is an additional motive: to drive a spike into Jewish Leftism. The Jews cannot defend against BDS unless they admit all sorts of things that they hate to admit.

What is an American?

It has become trendy to say that an American is anyone who believes in American ideals. But nobody really believes that, as most immigrants don't really believe in American ideals, and a lot of citizens don't either.

From a NY Times op-ed:
Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat, has repeatedly cited Roosevelt as her favorite president and her “dream” running mate ...

At the National Conservatism Conference, Rich Lowry, the editor of National Review, picked up on one of Roosevelt’s core themes in his speech, “Why America Isn’t an Idea.” Like Mr. Lowry, Roosevelt believed that America’s political culture was rooted not in universal principles about things like liberty and individual rights, but in the specifics of its history, its landscape and the experience of its people — which to Roosevelt meant predominantly Northern Europeans.

That’s one reason Roosevelt, like many of today’s conservative nationalists, endorsed restrictions on immigration. In his 1905 message to Congress, he said: “It will be a great deal better to have fewer immigrants, but all of the right kind, than a great number of immigrants, many of whom are necessarily of the wrong kind.”

... He proposed subsidies for white Americans to have more children and endorsed sterilizing the poor and mentally handicapped ...
Vox Day writes:
Remember, US citizen != American citizen of the USA. The latter is a subset of the former. There are many US citizens who are not Americans and there are also more than a few Americans who are not US citizens. Americans are the genetic descendants of the original People of the United States, for whom the Tranquility, the general Welfare and the Blessings of Liberty are to be secured by the US Constitution.
There is an American ethnic identity, just as this for French, Russian, or Japanese. A white person living in Japan would never describe himself as Japanese. I occasionally hear people describe themselves as ABC = American Born Chinese.

If someone asks for my ethnicity and I say "American", no one seems puzzled at the answer.

Also, people from other parts of North and South America do not call themselves "American". There is no Brazilian states of America, or any other country with America in the name. America means the American nation, governed by the US Constitution.

America was settled by somewhat different ethnic groups from Northwest Europe. But they blended together to form a new American identity. Indians and Africans were separate.

The term "native American" makes the most sense for White Americans born in America to American parents. Indians are not really Americans if they belong to some tribe claiming to be sovreign.

Amy Wax is in trouble again

Inside Higher Ed reports:
Amy Wax is in trouble again, this time for her comments on race and immigration. The Robert Mundheim Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania reportedly argued at a conference last week for “taking the position that our country will be better off with more whites and fewer nonwhites.”
That is not what she actually said, but it was enuf to get her denounced by the Penn Law dean as repugnant to the university.

That is just somebody's inference. Here is what she apparently said that was so offensive:
“Conservatives need a realistic approach to immigration that … preserves the United States as a Western and first-world nation,” Wax reportedly said during a panel. “We are better off if we are dominated numerically … by people from the first world, from the West, than by people who are from less advanced countries.”

These are "toxic topics that lie outside the Overton window in polite society -- as evidenced by outraged reaction to [President] Trump’s profane and grating ‘why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?’ That needs to be regarded as a serious question and not just a rhetorical one," she also said.

Wax has previously attracted criticism with related statements. She wrote in a 2017 op-ed that “all cultures are not equal,” despite the modern “obsession with race,” for instance.
Full transcript here.

The USA can have an immigration policy that preserves the nation, or one that systematically replaces Whites with Third World migrants. This is an important public policy question that deserves open debate.

However, only one side is permitted, even if it is by a distinguished tenured professor speaking on her own time outside the university.

It is now fair to assume that academia is now dominated by leftists who wish to exterminate White people.

I am happy to report that Amy Wax is Jewish. Not all Jews are on the wrong side of this issue.

Jewish ideas about concentration camps

From an LA Times op-ed:
We live in a country where people are being held in concentration camps.

I’m Jewish; I do not use the term “concentration camp” lightly. ... I stand with every Jew who has begun to say loudly and directly that “never again” is now. ...

Concentration camps, historian Andrea Pitzer has written, have a long, precise lineage. “Mass detention without trial,” she explained recently in the New York Review of Books, “earned a new name and a specific identity at the end of the nineteenth century. The labels then adopted for the practice were ‘reconcentraci√≥n’ and ‘concentration camps’ — places of forced relocation of civilians into detention on the basis of group identity.”

If that doesn’t define what’s happening at the border, what does? ...

Eighty years ago, in Germany, I would not have been allowed to write this in a newspaper.
No, that does not define what is happening. Some migrants are being let in, some are being turned away, and some are being detained. No civilians are being inconvenienced in any way. No one is being punished on the basis of group identity.

The USA is being invaded by migrants. Jews and Jewish organizations overwhelmingly support the invasion.

I don't know whether his opinion would have been allowed in Germany 80 years ago, but today Germany and most of Europe does forbid these opinions that trivialize the Jewish Holocaust. He acknowledges that rabbis very much disapprove of these Holocaust comparisons.

If the author is really concerned about free speech, he should direct his comments to Jews and Jewish organizations. They are the source of most censorship today. The latest is that they have blocked using the keyword "Christian" on YouTube. And if he is concerned about border enforcement, he could complain about Israel.

I post this as an example of how Jews think. No one else makes such arguments.

Dems say immigration restriction is immoral

I have been saying here for years that the Left has been going crazy with race and immigration issues. Right-wingers have been remarkably subdued about radical changes. Here is more proof.

The Jewish mag Tablet reports:
in our own time it’s the moral mythologies of liberal Democrats that have become increasingly detached from practical realties. The traditionally pro-immigration Democratic Party has not simply become more pro-immigration in recent years. Rather, in a fairly rapid shift over the past two decades, the party leadership and faithful have adopted a radical new framework that treats any restrictions on immigration and enforcement of current laws as immoral.

Sensible immigration reforms and policies that long commanded the support of majorities in both parties are now decried as veiled racism. In their place, the progressive wing of the Democratic Party is pushing for an immigration vision that borders on open-borders advocacy. ...

My own research shows that white guilt and privilege awareness, which are most pronounced among liberals, are indeed related to support for increasing immigration. The trappings of this moral psychology are further evident in the graph below, which shows that white Democrats are significantly more likely to endorse prioritizing the welfare of the poorest people in developing countries over that of the poorest Americans.
It is funny how the article uses euphemisms for Jews and Jewish thinking.

Much of the hatred comes from non-whites. Rep. Ilhan Omar recently said in an interview:
I would s ay our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country and so if fear was the driving force of policies to keep America safe, Americans safe inside of this country, we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men.
This is just anti-white propaganda, as this Wikipedia article shows that Moslems are about a 50 times greater terrorist threat, per capita.

I am not sure what caused this radical shift. Maybe the election of Barack Obama was taken as proof that the USA was an occupied country. Or maybe it was getting such total control of the press that 95% endorsed the Democrat in the 2016 election. Or maybe people believe that the non-white demographic shift has reached a tipping point, so that (non-Jewish, non-Hispanic) Whites have no power anymore.

At any rate, we are in an anti-White culture war, and Whites have not been defending themselves very much so far.

Update: Liberal NY Times columnist Maureen Dowd writes:
The progressives act as though anyone who dares disagree with them is bad. Not wrong, but bad, guilty of some human failing, some impurity that is a moral evil that justifies their venom.
She is being attacked by the Huff Post and other leftist sites.

The Most Loathesome Democrats

The Democrat Squad is pretty bad, but at least they are transparently anti-White and anti-American in their politics.

But what's th deal with Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, and the authors of the Mueller report? What is their endgame? Can we send them back to whatever rock they crawled out from under?

They display a fanatical hatred for Pres. Trump. They almost make Nancy Pelosi seem reasonable.

The Mueller investigation did uncover the fact that the Democrats did improperly use campaign funds to prepare the Steele dossier with defamatory lies from Russian intellience, and then for the Obama administration to use that as a pretext for court-approved spying on the Trump campaign.

And the Trump inquisitors want to impeach Trump for this?

The Squad may be just stupid and racist, but the Trump inquisitors seem to be carrying out a plot of the lizard people. They seem to understand that they have no incriminating evidence against Trump, but maybe they can impeach Trump anyway if their puppets in the news media recite their silly buzz phrases enuf.

Dalai Lama Says ‘Europe is For Europeans’

For centuries, few people doubted that Europe is For Europeans, and that women should be attractive. Now it takes an elderly Tibetan Buddhist to say the obvious, and the Western news media pretends to be offended.

From last year:
Dalai Lama has said that Europe might become “Muslim or African” if the refugees who have been taken in aren’t returned to their home countries. The Buddhist spiritual leader said that only a “limited number” of migrants must be allowed to stay in Europe. He has been living in India as a refugee since fleeing Tibet in 1959.

Dalai Lama Says ‘Europe is For Europeans’

The 83-year old believes that Europe should offer education to refugees then send them back to their homelands. When asked about what should happen if migrants were to end up staying in their adopted countries, Dalai Lama responded by saying that a limited number of refugees is okay. However, it would be impossible if all of Europe became a Muslim country or an African country.

The Dalai Lama repeated his claims saying that ‘Europe is for Europeans,’ in response to his status as a refugee
And now this:
The Dalai Lama has reiterated his desire that if a woman succeeds him, she better be good looking.

“If [a] female Dalai Lama comes, then she should be more attractive,” the 83-year-old spiritual guru told BBC News in a wide-ranging interview that aired Wednesday.

BBC reporter Rajini Vaidyanathan pressed him on his original comments from 2015, in which he said that his female successor “must be attractive, otherwise it is not much use.”
The interviewer said: “Can you see why that comment upset a lot of women?” But of course women are much more preoccupied with female beauty than men are.

Al Franken was railroaded

The New Yorker mag now admits that its reckless MeToo campaign has gone too far in the case of Al Franken. Kirsten Gillibrand is running for President based on her lynching of him in the Senate.

This whole MeToo movement is the most anti-Semitic thing I have ever seen. It has mostly leftist non-Jews who target leftist Jews with frivolous accusations. A weirdo leftist ideology prevents defense of these accusations.

The net effect is to destroy the careers of people like Al Franken. The public ignores the details, and just infers that they are perverts or worse.

I never like Franken anyway, but I think it is extremely unfair. Most of the accusations have very little credibility, and cannot be verified. Often they appear to be lies motivated by some personal grudge, political attack, or publicity seeking. Someday this will be seen as a strange period in history.

Big tech has sold out to Indians

Thirty years ago I would have dismissed the following story as ridiculous, or just an isolated incident. But now I have heard these stories many times, and nobody says they are false. Our big tech firms have outsourced their engineering work to foreigners, just to save a few nickels.

The Silicon Valley's biggest newspaper reports:
Hoseong Ryu’s trouble at Intel started even before he began working there, he claimed in a lawsuit filed this week.

Ryu, 45, applied in 2014 for a software engineering job at Intel, and was interviewed by a three-man panel, according to his lawsuit filed in Northern California U.S. District Court. One interviewer at the Santa Clara semiconductor giant was originally from India, and he had a question for Ryu, the suit claimed.

“I see you are from Korea,” the man allegedly said. “I know a Korean man named Sung Won Bin. Do you happen to know him?”

After the meeting, the man told a fellow interviewer that Intel shouldn’t hire Ryu because he was “Korean, married, and had a child,” and added, “It would be easier to hire a younger, unmarried Indian man,” the suit alleged.

Still, Intel hired Ryu onto its system integration team, where he found “the demographics of the worksite and its management have been heavily skewed toward employees from India or people of Indian or south-Asian descent,” the suit claimed.

One manager in his team, of Indian origin, “openly favored the hiring and promotion of only employees from India, stating that ‘Indians work hard’ and ‘Indians are harder workers,'” the suit alleged. That manager also encouraged a supervisor to hire only Indian employees, the suit filed Wednesday claimed.
It is now the case that most of the Silicon Valley engineers are foreign born.

Whites are now forced into identity politics

The NY Times reports:
Surveys show fears among some white people that they are losing status in America, and those holding such views are increasingly aligned with the Republican Party. These voters perceive anti-white discrimination. A growing share say the nation risks losing its identity because of openness to foreigners. And many are concerned about what it will mean when non-Hispanic whites lose majority status, as demographic projections suggest will happen around 2045. ...

Research is beginning to suggest that white voters who have long been politically motivated by their views of other groups may be starting to think of their own group as an explicit identity. In that sense, they appear for the first time in the Trump era to be thinking about themselves in ways that mirror how minorities have long thought about group identity. ...

The evidence that racial attitudes now play an important role in vote choice among white voters is overwhelming. ...

In this environment, polls show that a substantial number of white voters believe they face discrimination. They appear to be concerned that employers and schools may give preference to nonwhite candidates.

They don’t understand why cultural norms encourage nonwhite racial groups, but not white people, to openly identify with and celebrate their race. They might even resent that there’s no “white history” month, something that 29 percent of whites say they support.
I think this is correct. Until recently, Whites did not identify with other Whites politically.

In the last ten years or so, the Democrat party and those who control the media have become openly anti-White. I don't just mean promoting things like Black History Month. All of the Democrat presidential candidates now support open borders, and argue that it is good to reduce Whites to minority status. All support policies that favor non-whites over Whites. Several support a tax on White people to pay Blacks, calling it reparations. Jewish columnists advocate subjugating Whites at every opportunity. Amazon, Google, and other tech companies systematically censor anyone expressing White identity. Some are even being imprisoned on phony charges.

Pres. Trump hasn't caused any of this. He has very little interest in racial identity. If anything, he has slowed the trends. The identity politics would have been much worse if Trump had lost the 2016 election. Whites are switching to Trump only because they are being expelled from the Democrat party, and also treated as deplorable by the Jewish media.

Questioning the DSM-5 disorders

The DSM-5 is the psychiatric bible, but its value is dubious:
No two people are exactly alike. Therefore, attempting to classify each unique individual’s mental health issues into neat categories just doesn’t work. ...

That’s why a new study conducted at the University of Liverpool has raised eyebrows by concluding that psychiatric diagnoses are “scientifically meaningless,” and worthless as tools to accurately identify and address mental distress at an individual level.
People think that a "disorder" means that something is wrong, but it is really just a crude way of classifying patients, and no more.

Brooks doubles down on destroying whites

NY Times columnist, and fake conservative, David Brooks writes:
Trump’s campaign is an attack on that dream. The right response is to double down on that ideal. The task before us is to create the most diverse mass democracy in the history of the planet — a true universal nation.
Here, "diverse" means having as many non-whites as possible.

Who is the "us"? NY Times Jews? Liberal Democrats? Lizard people?

Trump stands for traditional Americanism. Brooks and his "us" are elitists carrying out the task of marginalizing white Christians, opening the borders, and turning America non-white.

And why is that a worthwhile task for Brooks and his kind? Brooks has said again and again that he despises Trump and people like him with every bone in his body. Brooks would rather destroy America than let it be dominated by white Christians.

I also saw Brooks on the PBS-TV news hour, where he is supposed to be the Republican balance to the left-wing Mark Shields. But they are both left-wing Trump-haters, and they had the same opinions.

Another Jewish NY Times columnist Bret Stephens writes:
But you do have to recognize that the newest immigrants have as much claim to the country and its lawful freedoms as any other American. That would certainly include Minnesota’s Representative Ilhan Omar, whose rights must be defended every bit as vigorously as many of her views should be opposed.
Why? I think Stephens is a citizen of Israel. Israel made him a citizen because he is a Jew. Omar is a Moslem. Moslems do not believe in American values. She appears to have come to the USA by immigration fraud. Whether that was true or not, it was a mistake to take her.

A lot of Jews attack Omar for being anti-Semitic, so you would think that they would be happy that Pres. Trump attacks her also. But no. Yet another Jewish NY Times columnist, Michelle Goldberg, has a whole column on how Jews should welcome anti-Semites like Omar as long as they are anti-Trump. She concludes:
Jews have thrived here as they have in few other places in the world because America at least aspires to be a multiethnic democracy, not an ethnostate. If Trump succeeds in making citizenship racialized and contingent, that’s an existential threat to American Jews.
This is a good example of crazy Jewish thinking.

I thought that it was considered anti-Semitic to attribute such views to Jews, but the NY Times has a bunch of Jewish columnists who write this stuff all the time. And they act as if they are speaking for a Jewish consensus that is to be imposed on everyone else. There is no other ethnic group that writes and talks like this.

Anglin fined for triggering a troll storm

The NY Times reports:
In his opinion, the judge, Jeremiah Lynch, also recommended that the publisher, Andrew Anglin, be made to remove all blog posts from the website, The Daily Stormer, that encouraged readers to contact the woman, Tanya Gersh, and her family. ...

Ms. Spencer wrote a blog post that accused Ms. Gersh, a real estate agent in Whitefish, Mont., of threatening and extorting her to sell a building and break ties with her son. Mr. Anglin then called for the “troll storm” by his readers.
Jeremiah Lynch is a funny name for a judge in this case. Here is the offending post, if you want to see for yourself. Reportedly, Anglin does not even live in the USA, as he has fled harassment. Anglin's post is offensive, but I am not sure why it is more actionable than what Gersh has done.

In the lawsuit, Gersh acknowledged that the whole dispute started when she organized a mob action to run Ms. Spencer out of town and take her property, because of Spencer's son's pro-Trump election celebration and other political views.

There will probably be no appeal and no payment, so magistrate Lynch might have the last word on the subject.

Anglin has an argument that he is the most censored person in America. He had a domain name stolen by Google, because Google does not approve of his political views. His site and social media accounts have been banned by many others.

I am not sure he is a real person. He seems to have others writing for him anonymously. While he uses slurs and derogatory language about groups, so does the NY Times. There is no free speech unless offensive speakers like Anglin and the NY Times can express their opinions.

Overusing terms until meaningless

The Slate Star Codex shrink writes:
A few months ago, a friend confessed that she had abused her boyfriend. I was shocked, because this friend is one of the kindest and gentlest people I know. I probed for details. She told me that sometimes she needed her boyfriend to do some favor for her, and he wouldn’t, so she would cry – not as an attempt to manipulate him, just because she was sad. She counted this as abuse, because her definition of “abuse” is “something that makes your partner feel bad about setting boundaries”. And when she cried, that made her boyfriend feel guilty about his boundary that he wasn’t going to do the favor. ...

The moral of the story is: don’t set thresholds for category membership so far outside a distribution that they stop conveying useful information.
He also explains how calling Pres. Trump a "liar" or "racist" requires such a loose definition of these terms that they lose all meaning.

Indeed, modern academics say that everyone is a racist. Even if you are a blind man and do not even know the race of anyone else, you are still a racist for failing to appreciate white privilege.

Likewise everyone is a liar. If you tell the truth too much, psychologists will diagnose you with Asperger syndrome or autistic spectrum disorder.

By some measures, Trumps is the most honest and least racist President we have had in decades. For example, Barack Obama's book shows that he has all sorts of racist views that no one has detected in Trump. Most of the argument for impeaching Trump is based on him being too honest in his explanations.

Most of Trump's enemies have given up calling him a liar or racist. They have moved on to call him a Nazi or a fascist or whatever worse epithets they can find. They appear to running out of meaningless slurs.

More Democrats have turned extremist

NY Times columnist Paul Krugman writes that a political party can win elections by saying "nigger nigger nigger". The Atlantic mag says the same. That has become the Democrat strategy.

It is rare to hear a Republican say anything about race, as Republicans do not appear to even think that racial issues are important. But listen to the Democrats, and its nigger nigger nigger all the time.

Plus, Democrats are now the Party of Open Borders. Someone tried to convince that this was a straw man, by pointing to this Elizabeth Warren essay on immigration reform. But the only reforms she advocates are to eliminate all limits on non-white immigration. So it is all open borders, and racially inflammatory language.

We are all descended from invaders

Nat. Geographic reports:
Now scientists are delivering new answers to the question of who Europeans really are and where they came from. Their findings suggest that the continent has been a melting pot since the Ice Age. ...

In an era of debate over migration and borders, the science shows that Europe is a continent of immigrants and always has been. “The people who live in a place today are not the descendants of people who lived there long ago,” says Harvard University paleogeneticist David Reich. ...

In Britain and some other places, hardly any of the farmers who already lived in Europe survived the onslaught from the east. In what is now Germany, “there’s a 70 percent to possibly 100 percent replacement of the local population,” Reich says. “Something very dramatic happens 4,500 years ago.” …

“To me, the new results from DNA are undermining the nationalist paradigm that we have always lived here and not mixed with other people,” Gothenburg’s Kristiansen says. “There’s no such thing as a Dane or a Swede or a German.” Instead, “we’re all Russians, all Africans.”
The nationalist paradigm is that a nation must defend its borders, or else it will be wiped out by invaders.

The DNA results prove this. Become a fierce nationalist, or be exterminated. That is the history of Europe.

All I hear from Democrats today is that they want to replace the American White population with non-whites. There is not even one Democrat presidential candidate who has a policy position to put limits on non-white immigration.

Celebrating the Fourth is White

Salon.com, a typical leftist site, posts this anti-Trump rant:
Donald Trump is one of the best storytellers in recent political memory because of his skill in manipulating the emotions of the audience. ... Trump's Fourth of July event was a great example of these gifts. ...

White Christian conservatives are a key constituency for today's Republican Party, and many of them apparently believe that Donald Trump is a messenger and savior sent to them by God. White conservatives, especially right-wing Christians, also believe they are in a literal, existential struggle for survival against black and brown people and "the secular world."

Donald Trump has combined these attributes and further weaponized them in the form of overt white supremacy and white identity politics. In this right-wing social imaginary Donald Trump stands as savior and father figure. Loyalty and obedience to Trump provides life and salvation to his followers.
This essay does not even quote anything from Trump! Instead it complains that his recent July 4 speech did not say anything about immigrants.

Got that? A white politician is a white supremacist if he fails to credit non-white immigrants.

Trump never says anything white supremacist, or white nationalist, or white identity political. It is the Democrats and his other enemy who inject anti-white racial matters into everything.

The NY Times has an article by a black woman who says she was bused two hours a day, and it worked because nobody can learn anything in a predominantly black school. It narrowed the white-black test scores, she says.

This article is much more white supremacist than anything Trump says. It is anti-white identity politics. It is written to boost the chances of Kamala Harris, who doesn't have much going for her except that she is a non-white female. She has a white grandparent and a Jewish husband, but she is campaigning on anti-white, anti-male identity politics.

Everyone is disassociating with Epstein

There is a big rush to disassociate with Jeffrey Epstein, and here is Steve Pinker:
My review of the history of rape and battering in The Better Angels of Our Nature  ... The lengthy section lauds feminist writers like Susan Brownmiller who first documented the prevalence of rape and the historic indifference to it, and who called for concerted measures to eliminate it. ...

Given my longstanding distaste for everything Epstein, it’s galling to be publicly associated with him based on some photos and mutual associates, but I suppose this is one of the dubious perquisites of fame (by academic standards).  And it’s a particular hazard in the era of social media — last year I was featured in a New York Times op-ed by Jesse Singal called “Social Media Is Making Us Dumber. Here’s Exhibit A”; this year I appear to be Exhibit B.
It is funny that he thinks that this somehow exonerates him.

Pinker is despised by the Left because he meets this definition of being red-pilled, and because he acts like a closet neo-nazi. If he is going to write a scholarly work on violence, he is going to pay homage to feminism. He has to, if wants to continue as a respected Harvard professor.

So obviously he is going to disavow Epstein.

I do not agree with guilt-by-association, but leftists do. I am not blaming him, but a lot of leftists are portraying Epstein as the world's greatest evil, and blaming everyone connected to him.

This is just another leftist media frenzy over stale and dubious accusations.

They say that a search of his house uncovered some child porn, but that is the surest way to frame someone. The evidence never becomes public, and the target goes to prison for life.

The most interesting question here is how Epstein made his money. He appears to be extremely rich, without any honest source of income. I have never heard of someone making so much money, while being interconnected with a lot of famous people, without any obvious explanation. Now there are rumors that he was an extortionist, blackmailer, con man, swindler, etc. I assume that we will find out the sources, as the feds are good at tracing money. They may not figure out why others were willing to invest money with such a goofball. Did we ever get an explanation of why people trusted Bernie Madoff?

Update: Inside Higher Ed piles on with Pinker attacks. I think that Pinker's enemies are not willing to say why they really hate him.

Twitter and Amazon increase their censorship

Twitter announces that it will not ban messages critical of religion:
We create our rules to keep people safe on Twitter, and they continuously evolve to reflect the realities of the world we operate within. Our primary focus is on addressing the risks of offline harm, and research* shows that dehumanizing language increases that risk. As a result, after months of conversations and feedback from the public, external experts and our own teams, we’re expanding our rules against hateful conduct to include language that dehumanizes others on the basis of religion.
The word "research" is just a euphemism for some Jewish opinion articles.

This would appear to ban a Christian saying that non-Christians will go to Hell.

And Amazon is now banning some self-help books:
After Amazon knuckled under pressure from LGBT activists to ban books offering help to those dealing with unwanted same-sex attraction, ...

Among the banned books are several by Catholic psychologists Joseph Nicolosi and Gerard Van Aardweg, as well as autobiographies of individuals who left active homosexuality.

“We are outraged that a smear campaign by one individual (who stated here that he never read these books) could convince Amazon to censor all books, audiobooks, and Kindle material related to our experiences and viewpoints,” reads the petition. ...

Here are the books known to have been banned by Amazon, which former gays and lesbians are demanding be restored:

Shame and Attachment Loss: The Practical Work of Reparative Therapy, by Dr. Joseph Nicolosi;

Restoring Sexual Identity: Hope for Women Who Struggle with Same-Sex Attraction, by Anne Paulk;

The Battle for Normality: A Guide for (Self-)Therapy for Homosexuality, by Dr. Gerard J. M. Van Den Aardweg; ...
Note that these bans are not based on anything being false, or dangerous, or infringing, or illegal, or anything like that.

Again, this bans some mainstream Christian opinions.

You might argue that these books have no proven effectiveness. But most of psychology and most self-help books have no proven effectiveness. These books are not any worse than the typical books in this genre. If Amazon were to ban ineffective books, a lot would have to go.

Women cannot distinguish fantasies from reality

A Nautilus article explains why imagination and memories are so similar in the brain:
It’s long been common knowledge that imaginings are re-combinations of bits from memory. But now we’re seeing that the act of recalling something that happened to you looks very much like what happens when you imagine something new.
A large number of women have fantasies about having sexual relations with the President. After a while, it becomes impossible for the women to distinguish the memory of a real event from the memory of a fantasy.

A recent accuser got a lot of publicity, and many wondered whether she was telling the truth. That is the wrong question, as it is unlikely that she knows whether she is telling the truth. Her book told a lot of wild stories, so she probably has many fantasies and real experiences, and she cannot distinguish them. A reporter found a couple of women who said that she should be believed, but of course they say that all women should be believed.

Netflix has convinced the public that a confession could be a false confession, even if it is videorecorded in the presence of parents and lawyers and results in a long prison term. If so, then a MeToo confession can be a false one also. If someone might confess falsely and get a 40-year prison term, then someone might confess falsely to get a million-dollar book contract.

Here is a MeToo allegation in today's news:
For a year, Araoz said, she was brainwashed into giving Epstein massages while wearing only her underwear. He would masturbate until he finished — and then leave her $300.

But in 2002, Araoz claimed, Epstein told her to remove her underwear because he wanted to “try something a little bit different.”
Epstein is a creep with deep pockets, and the vultures are closing in on him. It sounds as if the accuser suddenly remembered this story after 17 years, and after signing a deal with a lawyer to make a claim.

NY Times quotes Roissy blog

This blog is getting some unwanted attention from this NY Times article:
The technological frontiers being explored by questionable researchers and unscrupulous start-ups recall the discredited pseudosciences of physiognomy and phrenology, which purport to use facial structure and head shape to assess character and mental capacity.

Artificial intelligence and modern computing are giving new life and a veneer of objectivity to these debunked theories, which were once used to legitimize slavery and perpetuate Nazi race “science.” Those who wish to spread essentialist theories of racial hierarchy are paying attention. In one blog, for example, a contemporary white nationalist claimed that “physiognomy is real” and “needs to come back as a legitimate field of scientific inquiry.”
This is not a reference to this blog, but to the now defunct Chateau Heartiste blog. It was banned by Wordpress, without public explanation. I doubt that it was banned for white nationalism, as I never saw him express such views.

However he wrote about beauty and ugliness a lot, and he discussed social trends. Yes, many of his opinions would be called racist by the NY Times leftists. He said a lot of things that leftists despise.

It is outrageous that his blog was banned, as it was filled with fascinating insights about human nature. He often did cite scientific studies to back up his views.

I just quoted his comments on physiogonomy in 2016 as provocative. Most everyone does make some judgments based on appearance.

The NY Times says:
Affect recognition draws from the work of Paul Ekman, a modern psychologist who argued that facial expressions are an objective way to determine someone’s inner emotional state, and that there exists a limited set of basic emotional categories that are fixed across cultures. His work suggests that we can’t help revealing these emotions. That theory inspired the television show “Lie to Me,” about a scientist who helps law enforcement by interpreting unforthcoming suspects’ expressions.

Dr. Ekman’s work has been criticized by scholars who say emotions cannot be reduced to such easily interpretable — and computationally convenient — categories.
Ekman does seem to overstate what can be done with his approach, and reading the emotions of others can often be wrong.

But nearly everyone reads emotions from facial expressions. Some claim that dogs can do it. If you cannot do it, then psychiatrists say you have autism.
If physiognomy gained traction, “one will hang children before they have done the deeds that merit the gallows,” Lichtenberg wrote, warning of a “physiognomic auto-da-f√©.”
Soon AI systems will be predicting criminality based on DNA, faces, habits, friends, health, and anything else available to the surveillance state.
