Colleges now teach White hatred

California is about to pass this law requiring college student to take anti-White courses:
SECTION 1. The Legislature finds and declares all of the following: (a) Ethnic studies programs have come about from students of color demanding them. On November 6, 1968, a coalition of student groups at San Francisco State University demanded that the university institute an ethnic studies program. (b) Ethnic studies are an interdisciplinary and comparative study of race and ethnicity with special focus on four historically defined racialized core groups: Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Latina and Latino Americans. (c) Studies have found that both students of color and white students benefit academically as well as socially from taking ethnic studies courses. Ethnic studies courses play an important role in building an inclusive multicultural democracy. ... 89032. (a) It is the intent of the Legislature that students of the California State University acquire the knowledge and skills that will help them comprehend the diversity and social justice history of the United States and of the society in which they live to enable them to contribute to that society as responsible and constructive citizens.
No, you cannot take White studies, or European studies, or Western Civilization, or Christian studies. Princeton University has been accused, like everyone else, of system racism against colored people. It has to be an approved course on the "four historically defined racialized core groups". So far, Cal State is planning to permit courses on "social justice", if the law allows. That has become another code word for anti-White. Princeton Mathematics professor Sergiu Klainerman responds:
This awful accusation is in no way consistent with the experience of most of us. Together with all other academic institutions in the US, Princeton is today a model for the diversity of both its faculty and its student body. A cursory look at campus demographics will show that people of color, a category that includes Indians and Pakistanis, as well as Chinese and other people of East-Asian origin, make up a much higher proportion of the campus population than their representation in the US population. Those charging Princeton University with “white supremacy” never explain how their accusation is compatible with this reality. In my own department, Mathematics, both the faculty and graduate students are recruited from all over the world with absolutely no regard for any other criteria beyond excellence in research, scholarship, and teaching. If anything, the process produces a shockingly small number of US-born faculty — at my counting less than 15 percent. Our department has for years been credited as the top Mathematics department in the US and probably in the world.
Got that? Over-representation of non-whites, no White supremacists, and less than 15% of math faculty are even born in the USA! If the university wants diversity of viewpoints, then it should have some White supremacists on the faculty. It should also have some Christians, some Republicans, some Trump supporters, and most of all, some natural born Americans! White supremacy is just an opinion. It is no more offensive than Marxism, and the university has avowed Marxists on the faculty. Their most famous professor is probably moral philosopher Peter Singer, and he is known for a broad range of sick and twisted opinions.

Global warming brings certain death to millions

The NY Times reports:
For most of human history, people have lived within a surprisingly narrow range of temperatures, in the places where the climate supported abundant food production. But as the planet warms, that band is suddenly shifting north. According to a pathbreaking recent study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the planet could see a greater temperature increase in the next 50 years than it did in the last 6,000 years combined. ...

A 2017 study in Science Advances found that by 2100, temperatures could rise to the point that just going outside for a few hours in some places, including parts of India and Eastern China, “will result in death even for the fittest of humans.”
World temperatures are only projected to increase a couple fo degrees. And that will be certain death for hundreds of millions in India and China?

I doubt it, but that will be an excuse to invade White countries anyway.

Bankruptcy of American White Nationalism

Ron Unz has a new essay on The Political Bankruptcy of American White Nationalism. It is also posted on AmRen.

It is funny that the two sites with the biggest reputations for White nationalism publish an article with such scathing criticism of it.

Unz may be right that there is little or no political support for White nationalism. But that is not the choice we face today. If Joe Biden is elected, then we will have open borders, massive replacement of Americans by foreigners, defunding the police, race riots, slavery reparations, Bernie socialism, and the end of free speech.

The only way we would ever have any white nationalism is if the non-whites start a civil war.

There are whites in Portland and other cities who seem to be trying to start a civil war, but they are doing in the name of non-whites, and with the purpose of subjugating Whites.

The NY Times has a glowing interview of a couple of rich Jewish leftists who use their influence to try to punish White non-Jews. They look White, but they identify as non-white and anti-Christian. I prefer other brands of ice cream anyway.

Is there any limit to what women will bitch about? The Daily Mail reports:
Women across the country are reporting a rise in 'aggressive eye contact' since the introduction of face coverings in some public places.

New laws introduced over the weekend force customers to wear face masks in all shops, stations, banks and post offices, while it is also mandatory to wear coverings on public transport.

But many women have been sharing stories online of 'aggressive eye contact' and 'hard staring' from men wearing masks, with one tweeting: 'Grown men staring at you with a mask on is worse than when they don't have a mask.'

UN Women UK Executive Director Claire Barnett told FEMAIL: 'As we work to "build back better" following lockdown, we need to prevent the lack of witnesses of antisocial behaviour due to less populated public spaces, as well as the anonymity face coverings can provide, leading to further rises in harassment and threatening actions towards women, girls and minoritised groups.

'This will require widespread changes in attitudes and behaviour - creating an understanding that behaviour like unwanted and persistent staring is intimidating, and that we all have a role to play in making our public spaces more inclusive.'
When men do not stare at them, they complain that they are being ignored. Either way, they demand that men change their behavior.

Professor destroyed for common sense opinions

NBC News reports:
A college professor, whose rhetoric had been labeled "vile" and "hateful" by his own university, died by suicide, police said Monday.
Colleges used to be places where academic freedom gives tenured professors the ability to say whatever they want. Not any more. I was curious as to what got him in so much trouble, and I found this:
Last month, Adams came under fire for tweets about Gov. Roy Cooper’s stay-at-home orders because of the coronavirus.

In a May 28 tweet, Adams said universities shouldn’t be closing but that they should shut down “the non-essential majors. Like Women’s Studies.” The next day, Adams tweeted, ““This evening I ate pizza and drank beer with six guys at a six seat table top. I almost felt like a free man who was not living in the slave state of North Carolina. Massa Cooper, let my people go!”

He posted on Twitter about individuals protesting the killing of George Floyd, saying that rioters were “thugs looking for an opportunity to break the law with impunity.” Adams also called the actions of the Minneapolis police involved with Floyd’s killing “completely indefensible” on Twitter.
Those tweets got him fired?!

The first is a sensible opinion, as no one thinks that Womens Studies is essential. The second is a harmless sarcastic comment about the lockdown. The third is a couple of correct statements about rioters and Floyd's death. We certainly need professional opinions on police conduct.

I am guessing that saying that Minneapolis police actions are defensible got him in the most trouble. If so, let's have a debate on what the cops should or should not have done. But we don't see that.

I have yet to see anyone say how Derek Chauvin could have done any better. You could say that he could have taken his knee off of Floyd's neck, and allowed Floyd to get up. Is there some medical explanation for that improving Floyd's health? I doubt it. I have an open mind on this, but in the current climate, I don't expect any good explanations.

Priest is fired for commenting on George Floyd

The NY Times reports:
After a contentious divorce in 2001, Mr. Den Hollander began using the court system to address his grievances, suing nightclubs for advertising ladies’ nights discounts and Columbia University for having a women’s studies program. When he lost in court, as he almost always did, ...
Okay, he sounds nutty, but we have a Jewish woman on the US supreme court who made her reputation with similar lawsuits.

Boston news:
[Editor’s Note: Below is the text of an email message that Father Daniel Moloney, the Catholic chaplain at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, sent to Catholics at the university (a group known as the Tech Catholic Community, or TCC) on Sunday, June 7, 2020. Two days later, the Archdiocese of Boston forced him to resign because of it.]

My brothers and sisters in Christ,

It pains me not to be able to preach at a time like this. The Gospel says one thing, and everyone else is saying partial truths, at most. George Floyd was killed by a police officer, and shouldn’t have been. He had not lived a virtuous life. He was convicted of several crimes, including armed robbery, which he seems to have committed to feed his drug habit. And he was high on drugs at the time of his arrest. But we do not kill such people. He committed sins, but we root for sinners to change their lives and convert to the Gospel. Catholics want all life protected from conception until natural death. The police officer who knelt on his neck until he died acted wrongly. I do not know what he was thinking. The charges filed against him allege dangerous negligence, but say nothing about his state of mind. He might have killed George Floyd intentionally, or not. He hasn’t told us. But he showed disregard for his life, and we cannot accept that in our law enforcement officers. It is right that he has been arrested and will be prosecuted.

In the wake of George Floyd’s death, most people in the country have framed this as an act of racism. I don’t think we know that.
Maybe he should have been fired, because he accuses the police of crimes that they did not commit. Floyd died of heart disease, COVID-19, and a fentanyl overdose. The autopsy showed no evidence of injury to the neck.

Just one player refuses to kneel

The Daily Wire reports:
The only baseball player who refused to kneel during a moment honoring Black Lives Matter in Dodger Stadium on Thursday claimed he did so because of his Christian faith.

Sam Coonrod, a 27-year-old reliever for the San Francisco Giants, explained his act by saying he only kneels before God, according to TMZ Sports.

Coonrod also said that his faith kept him from endorsing the Black Lives Matter movement because of its Marxist political platform. “I just can’t get on board with a couple things I’ve read about Black Lives Matter, how they lean towards Marxism. And … they said some negative things about the nuclear family. I just can’t get on board with that.”

"I'm a Christian, like I said, and I just can't get on board with a couple of things that I have read about Black Lives Matter."
Just one player?!

The man is right. This is an anti-Christian Marx plot to subjugate and exterminate White men. No White man should kneel.

Democrat Platform is anti-White

The Democrate Party has been becoming, more and more, the anti-White party. See the latest platform for all the identity politics. They go for the votes of anyone other than straight White males.

Chicago Eugenics goes Black

This university is famous for its commitment to free speech and academic freedom, but it announces:
The Department of Human Genetics at the University of Chicago condemns police violence against Black people, a long-standing epidemic in American society that is finally – and painfully – being broadly recognized for what it is: an institutionalized system of brutality, intimidation, harassment and control by the state against its own citizens. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, and Tony McDade are just a few recent victims of murder by police in the context of systemic dehumanization, oppression, and discrimination that has lasted for centuries. We add our names to the growing chorus of voices saying, “Enough.”

We also support and defend the right of all who engage in nonviolent protest and civil disobedience to dismantle this entrenched and repugnant system. There can be no justification for deploying police and military violence against protesters who insistently defend the ideals of justice in our society.

We are painfully aware that genetic science has, for more than a century, played a central role in producing the ideology that supports systemic racism. By providing a “scientific” justification for the idea that some groups of people are fundamentally different or intrinsically superior to others, genetics and geneticists have rationalized and legitimated white supremacy. ... many of our field’s fundamental concepts and approaches were established for the purpose of advancing eugenics, under the assumption of extensive racial differences within a social hierarchy.
Sometimes I think that these people are White supremacists and closet eugenicists.

If they were, what would they say? They would be forced to go along with the BLM propaganda, but they would signal disingenuousness by starting with an obvious falsehood.

For example, if I were forced to endorse Joe Biden, I might say that I am voting for Biden because he was against the Iraq War. Someone can figure out that this is nonsense, because Biden was a big supporter of the war.

Here, the genetics professors say that Floyd was murdered as part of institutionalized brutality towards Blacks. This is nonsense. Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose.

Other universities are also putting out pro-BLM statements, and even announcing required courses on the subject.

Sam Harris has another podcast on genetic determinism, along with a lengthy gripe about being canceled for this sort of thing. His main points were:
The modus operandi of the Left is to deny facts, and cancel enemies.

His leftist friends believe in the Blank Slate. Or at least they say they do, and are hostile to anyone with other beliefs.

The Blank Slate is demonstrably false.

He is still getting negative feedback from interviewing Charles Murray a couple of years ago.

Anyone in a position of responsibility would get fired for telling the truth.
His guest was a psychology professor doing research on genetic influences on behavior. Even tho everything he said was backed by hard data and published in the most prestigious journals, he refuses to go on social media, respond to critics, or discuss group differences.

Harris himself is a Jewish leftist Trump-hater, altho he is really more of a convert to Buddhism.

Harris would lose his subscriber base if he were to support Trump, or to favor White supremacy. So of course he denounces Trump, and recites leftist mantras. If he were a White supremacist, he would do just what he does now.

As Harris's guest explain, the genetic influence on behavior is scientifically undeniable. It is proved by twin studies, by adoption studies, and polygenetic scoring. It is quantitative, and replicated.

The Chicago statement says that geneticists have rationalized and legitimated white supremacy with this evidence. So now they are going to pretend that police systematically murder Blacks instead.

AP goes uppercase Black

I mentioned that the NY Times is going uppercase Black. Now The Associated Press
After changing its usage rules last month to capitalize the word “Black” when used in the context of race and culture, The Associated Press on Monday said it would not do the same for “white.”

The AP said white people in general have much less shared history and culture, and don’t have the experience of being discriminated against because of skin color.

Protests following the death of George Floyd, which led to discussions ...

White doesn’t represent a shared culture and history in the way Black does,” The New York Times said on July 5 in explaining its decision.
They seem to be saying this in a nonsensical way, as a way of signaling that they don't really believe it.

There certainly is a White culture and history. Some books call it "Western Civilization" and some call it "Christendom". Read those history books for great accomplishments, and 95% of them were done by White people. The USA in particular has a distinctive culture and history, and it is almost entirely a story of White people.

See the former Smithsonian exhibit on Whites for examples of White culture.

Yes, I know that Blacks are responsible for some great music and other things.

Meanwhile, they use "Black" to include American Blacks, Africans, and many others. They have far less of a shared culture and history. I cannot think of anything.

The NY Times is moving on. Agnes Callard writes in the NY Times:
Should We Cancel Aristotle?

The Greek philosopher Aristotle did not merely condone slavery, he defended it; he did not merely defend it, but defended it as beneficial to the slave. His view was that some people are, by nature, unable to pursue their own good, and best suited to be “living tools” for use by other people: “The slave is a part of the master, a living but separated part of his bodily frame.”

Aristotle’s anti-liberalism does not stop there. He believed that women were incapable of authoritative decision making. And he decreed that manual laborers, despite being neither slaves nor women, were nonetheless prohibited from citizenship or education in his ideal city. ...

Aristotle thought that the value or worth of a human being — his virtue — was something that he acquired in growing up. It follows that people who can’t (women, slaves) or simply don’t (manual laborers) acquire that virtue have no grounds for demanding equal respect or recognition with those who do.

As I read him, Aristotle not only did not believe in the conception of intrinsic human dignity that grounds our modern commitment to human rights, he has a philosophy that cannot be squared with it.
I believe Aristotle was more White than those inhabiting Greece today.

Besides being hated for being White, Aristotle is hated for being logical and empirical. They would love to replace him with a Black Aristotle, if they can find one. They are planning to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, but she was no Aristotle.

Update: This article and video claim that romantic love is part of White culture, and only invented in 18th century Western Europe.

Google bans more right-wingers

Google blocked searches for dozens of conservative web sites yesterday.

Mediate:
A Tuesday incident in which certain websites briefly vanished from Google search results may have inadvertently exposed an internal list aimed at suppressing certain news outlets, a former engineer for the company said.
Since the blocked sites were politically conservative, it seems very likely to be a byproduct of Google keeping a blacklist of conservative sites, with possible use for manipulating the Fall election.
Dr. Robert Epstein, a researcher who has argued Google has the power to sway up to 10 percent of American voters in the 2020 election, concurred with Wacker. “It’s likely that a person or algorithm at Google added ‘breitbart.com’ and other URLs to one or more of the company’s blacklists,” Epstein said. “Then, perhaps after some pushback, someone pulled those URLs off the blacklists.”

Any manual manipulation would conflict with testimony Google CEO Sundar Pichai delivered to Congress in December 2018, when he told a House committee the company did not “manually intervene on any search result.”

In a jargon-filled statement, Google said it was looking into the issue, but failed to offer any explanation.
Google is very deceptive about manual interventions. Google certainly does keep secret lists of sites that are favored or disfavored, for various kinds of searches.

I think Google imported Pichai in order to implement an Indian caste system at Google.

This comes after Google has banned dozens of prominent YouTube personalities, such as Stefan Molyneux and Roosh V.

It is increasingly clear that the major tech platforms and payment processors are systematically censoring anyone sympathetic to Pres. Trump. With Trump trailing badly in the polls, they want to kill him off while they can. If Joe Biden is elected, we may never have free speech again.

There was a murder in the news, where a crazy anti-feminist went after a federal judge, after posting a lot of online rants. It is possible that Google was clumsily trying to block access to his rants, but I doubt it.

The Atlantic magazine reports on those rants:
Den Hollander, who was 72, held deeply misogynistic beliefs about women and filed a series of lawsuits against what he considered unfair advantages they had over men. One of those suits, in which he argued that it was unconstitutional for women not to be subject to military draft, reached Salas’s court in 2019.
I am not sure why that is "deeply misogynistic". We have a female Jewish Supreme Court justice who has made that same argument for years.

I found a couple of his rants here and here. I haven't read them.

The right-wing has become the pro-truth faction. The Left sees censorship as the only way to control the narrative.

Update: The Atlantic also says:
If you vote for Donald Trump, you are a racist. You have no wiggle room.
Over 60 million citizens voted for Trump. Of course it is also becoming conventional wisdom that (1) all Whites are racist; and (2) Whites are the least racist people in the world. So it is safe to say that everyone is racist!

Lutheran Church now controlled by lesbians

Sweden is supposed to be a feminist utopia, and here is more proof:
The Church of Sweden, Europe's largest Lutheran denomination, is known today for its overtly liberal position in many theological and secular issues, such as the question of homosexuality, yet has been steadily losing 1-2 percent of its worshippers every year over the past decades.

For the first time in history, the number of female clergy in the Church of Sweden has surpassed that of their male counterparts, the church newspaper Kyrkans tidning reported.

The share of women is now up to 50.1 percent, or 1,533, compared to 49.9 percent men or 1,527, the employers's organisation Skao reported.

Among the deacons, however, the proportion is even more skewed, as wholly 89 percent are women. Among pastors, though, women still lag behind, at 37 percent.

According to former dean Karin Burstrand, the issue of gender equality is of utmost importance for the church's “credibility” in society. ...

The Church of Sweden is also known for acceptance of and support for LGBT, with Bishop of Stockholm Eva Brunne being the first lesbian bishop in the world. The Church of Sweden is led by Archbishop Antje Jackélen, the country's first female archbishop.

In recent years, however, the church has been leaking worshippers at a rate of 1-2 percent annually. Merely 2 percent of the flock are said to regularly attend Sunday services.
Wow. It is hard to see how Christianity can survive in Sweden. It could be a Moslem country in a few decades.

Update: See this story for how Sweden has allowed Somalis to commit horrible crimes.

More on White Fragility

A lot of people misunderstand Robin DiAngelo.

Here is her 2011 scholarly article that popularized the term "White Fragility" among race-baiting academics:
Although mainstream definitions of racism are typically some variation of individual "race prejudice", which anyone of any race can have, Whiteness scholars define racism as encompassing economic, political, social, and cultural structures, actions, and beliefs that systematize and perpetuate an unequal distribution of privileges, resources and power between white people and people of color (Hil-liard, 1992).
So while people commonly define "racism" as judging someone by the color of his skin, or something like that, today's scholars used a different definition. Racism means support some system, such as capitalism or any other known political or economic system, that results in inequality.

In a recent interview, she makes it clear that capitalism is inherently racist, as she uses the term:
Capitalism is so bound up with racism. I avoid critiquing capitalism — I don’t need to give people reasons to dismiss me. But capitalism is dependent on inequality, on an underclass. If the model is profit over everything else, you’re not going to look at your policies to see what is most racially equitable.
She has now left the university, and makes millions of dollars doing corporate anti-racism workshops. These largely consist of telling Whites that they are racist, regardless of them being color-blind or having Black friends or anything like that. It has nothing to do with what they think or do.

All Whites are racists because people of color envy them. (I use the term "people of color" because that is the term she uses.) People of color see Western Civilization, and everything great about it, as being created by White people, and White is what is normal, good, and acceptable. Nothing Whites say or do will change that. Whites can become more understanding of the hostility that non-whites have against them, or take some affirmative action to placate them, but it won't address the underlying issue. Non-whites will still envy and resent Whites.

In case you think DiAngelo is married to a Black man, see her husband's web page. Yes, he is White. She does not appear to like Blacks or want anything to do with them. Her game is educating White people on how privileged they are by not being Black, and making money off of corporations who get shamed into anti-racism training.

The above interview notes that there is evidence that these anti-racism seminars do not work. Whites attend these will no ill-will towards Blacks at all, and then learn that Blacks reject White values and will resent and hate Whites no matter what. Whites are told to be especially considerate of such Blacks. For example, Whites may be told that Blacks see it as unfair that hard-working Whites make more money that lazy Blacks, and that Whites need to understand that it is part of White supremacist culture to reward hard work. The obvious conclusion is that a White culture should never bring in non-whites that will never assimilate.

I sometimes get accused of saying racially insensitive things on this blog, but DiAngelo's NY Times bestseller is much more offensive to Blacks.

Here is a similar view, expressed differently:
The biggest reason why Whites are believed to be racist is that they are far the greatest achievers in human history and they created the nations non-whites crave to inhabit. The very existence of White Men goes against the principle of equality since they are responsible for almost 100% of the greatest achievements in all the fields of human endeavor since ancient historical times. This is a big reason why White nations are earmarked for total race mixing, and why White Males are the most resented group. ...

These lists (and some exaggerate a bit, for the sake of argument) will show that White men are responsible for almost everything that is noble, beautiful, and excellent in history, far surpassing the achievements of all the other races combined. The sheer fact that White men came up with all the disciplinary fields taught in our universities speaks volumes: archaeology, botany, economics, sociology, anthropology, history, biology, chemistry, genetics, physics, medicine, literature, theology, architecture...all of them.

The greatest painters, novelists, historians, biologists, physicists, classical composers, poets, car designers, mathematicians, architects are White men. White men were the greatest nation builders in history. They discovered and mapped the entire earth, every river, mountain, sea, desert -- including every territory inhabited by non-whites.
He goes on to list great achievements, and nearly all are credited to White men.

Or as DiAngelo wrote in her 2011 paper:
Living in a white dominant context, we receive constant messages that we are better and more important than people of color. These messages operate on multiple levels and are conveyed in a range of ways. For example: our centrality in history textbooks, historical representations and perspectives; ... and, the lack of a sense of loss about the absence of people of color in most white people's lives. While one may explicitly reject the notion that one is inherently better than another, one cannot avoid internalizing the message of white superiority, as it is ubiquitous in mainstream culture (Tatum, 1997; Doane, 1997)
Again, she is saying that nearly all the great achievers in history were White men, and nearly everyone, White or colored, comes to the conclusion that Whites are better and more important.

She says Whites dominate popular TV shows, but since 2011 we have a lot more coloreds on TV.

Her last item is a funny one. She says that if Whites have no people of color in their lives, then they have no sense of loss about it! Yes, I think that is right. Millions of coloreds all over the world emigrate in attempts to live among White people. However, Whites show no great desire to live among people of color.

Pizzagate needs to be debunked

Pizzagate is back in the news.

There are still many unanswered questions about Jeffrey Epstein and Pizzagate. While it is implausible that so many rich and famous people could be involved in child sex crimes, there does appear to be a surprising tolerance of suggestion of activities that look bad.

See this article for some suspicious things about Pizzagate, but there are many more articles with many more suspicious things. As far as I know, the principals have never explained the bizarre art, symbolism, and suggestive references that have been exposed.

White Fragility

A lot of attention has been given to White Fragility, a book by a leftist White female middle-aged sociology professor. She argues:
All humans are divided into Whites and people of color.

Whites do not identify with the White race or any other race.

Whites are not particularly sensitive to racial differences, and mostly treat races the same.

People of color are obsessed with race, and with White resentment.

It is difficult to train Whites to understand how people of color hate them.
If this sounds as if she is some sort of White supremacist, she would probably agree, and say that all Whites are inherently White supremacists. Whites think of themselves as just ordinary people, but the people of color see Whites as superior, so it is useless for Whites to try to be nice to people of color.

In other words, all Whites are White supremacists, not because of what Whites think, but because people of color see Whites as superior.

This is not my opinion, but the opinion stated her book, the biggest selling book on the subject. It has been high on the best-seller lists for a long time. She has made millions from this.

For another opinion, see “Black Lives Matter” Is A BLOOD LIBEL Against White America.

I just learned that the Smithsonian Museum has an exhibit to celebrate the virtues of White people:
individualism
autonomy
nuclear family
objective
rational thinking
scientific method
Greek and Roman traditions
work ethic
Christianity
respect authority
value property
future time orientation
follow schedules
female beauty
male status, power, intellect
rule of law
favor success
decision-making
grammar rules
avoid conflict
hide emotion and personal life
be polite
Wow, they nailed it.

It goes on:
If you identify as white, acknowledging your white racial identity and its privileges is a crucial step to help end racism. Facing your whiteness is hard and can result in feelings of guilt, sadness, confusion, defensiveness, or fear. Dr. Robin DiAngelo coined the term white fragility to describe these feelings as "a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves." Since white people "live in a social environment that insulates them from race-based stress," whites are rarely challenged and have less of a tolerance to race-based stress.
The obvious lesson is for Whites to celebrate the above virtues, without any guilt, sadness, confusion, defensiveness, or fear.

I think that the site is correct that White see those virtues are essential to a good and full life. They have no ill will towards people of color, but feel sad and defensive when others reject these White virtues.

In fairness, see this book review of DiAngelo's book, by a Black professor who calls it a pernicious and racist book.

Update: The Smithsonian has taken down the Whiteness poster. It was based on the work of a Jewish woman. The material on White Fragility and DiAngelo is still there.

New video evidence on George Floyd

The NY Times reports:
MINNEAPOLIS — Almost from the moment George Floyd encountered the police on May 25, with a gun pointed at him, he appeared terrified and emotionally distraught, according to police camera footage that was newly made available for viewing Wednesday at a courthouse in downtown Minneapolis.

Mr. Floyd was visibly shaken, with his head down, and crying, as if he were in the throes of a panic attack, as he put his hands on the steering wheel in response to a frantic order from an officer.
Yes, Floyd was already dying of a fentanyl overdose, along with other medical problems.
At one point, in footage not previously seen, the officers are shown dragging Mr. Floyd to the ground after he resisted being put in the squad car.
So Floyd was resisting arrest.
Once he was on the ground, as Mr. Floyd again said he couldn’t breathe, and asked for water, and begged for his life, Derek Chauvin, the senior officer on the scene, said, in a nonchalant, almost mocking, tone, “takes a heck of a lot of oxygen to say that.”
So Floyd was complaining that he couldn't breathe, long before Chauvin touched his neck.
Mr. Chauvin’s response, uttered with no emotion, was, “uh huh.”
That seems to be the biggest complaint against Chauvin -- that he showed no emotion.

But maybe he was just a professional doing his job. We would not condemn a surgeon who fails to show emotion while a surgery had a bad outcome.
In the lawsuit, Mr. Crump ... said that training materials given to officers in 2014, including Mr. Chauvin and another officer charged in Mr. Floyd’s killing, show an officer placing a knee on the neck of a person who is being arrested and is handcuffed in a prone position, as Mr. Floyd was.
In other words, the police followed the training that they had been given.
Once an ambulance arrived — late, because paramedics had first gone to the wrong location — Mr. Lane went inside and administered chest compressions on Mr. Floyd, whose face appeared bloodied.
So the police quickly figured out that Floyd was having a medical emergency, and called an ambulance. The 8-minute video recording was of Chauvin holding Floyd while waiting for the ambulance. The ambulance would have gotten there sooner, but for a mistake. But the mistake was not the fault of the police.
But even in the ambulance, at first, there appeared to be little sense of urgency, according to the newly seen footage, with minutes passing before anyone tended to Mr. Floyd.
So the police helped the paramedics do chest compressions, and the main complaint is that "there appeared to be little sense of urgency".

This is crazy. You cannot tell from a video whether they had a sense of urgency. Maybe they are disciplined professionals. Showing haste and emotion is not the best way to administer medical care. The best treatments I have received were from physicians and nurses who did not show haste or emotion.

This is the NY Times trying to make the Minneapolis police look bad, and stir up race riots. It only convinces me more that the police are innocent. No one can point to a single thing the police did that was either against recommended procedure, had a racial motivation, or had a harmful effect on Floyd.

NY Times goes fully anti-White

NY Times columnist Bari Weiss writes a resignation letter:
My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m “writing about the Jews again.” Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers. My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.

There are terms for all of this: unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge. I’m no legal expert. But I know that this is wrong.

I do not understand how you have allowed this kind of behavior to go on inside your company in full view of the paper’s entire staff and the public.
She calls herself a "left-leaning centrist", but she is really a big advocate of Jewish identity politics. She favors whatever is good for the Jews, and bad for non-Jewish Whites. I don't know why she didn't fit in at the NY Times, unless she is not sufficiently aligned with the anti-White agenda.

Andrew Sullivan, who is known mostly for pro-war, pro-gay, and pro-left views, is apparently not woke enough for his New York employer.

A NY Times news art
Asked About Black Americans Killed by Police, Trump Says, ‘So Are White People’

The president rejected the fact that Black people suffer disproportionately from police brutality and made startling remarks ...

Mr. Trump added to his long record of racially inflammatory comments during an interview with CBS News, in which he brushed off a question about Black people killed by police officers, saying that white people are killed in greater numbers.
No, it is not a fact that Blacks suffer disproportionately. Every academic study has found Blacks commit many more crimes than Whites, and that the police act in proportion to the crimes committed.

The article keeps using uppercase "Blacks" and lowercase "whites". This is clear proof that the NY Times hates Whites.
Statistics show that while more white Americans are killed by the police over all, people of color are killed at higher rates. A federal study that examined lethal force used by the police from 2009 to 2012 found that a majority of victims were white, but the victims were disproportionately Black. Black people had a fatality rate at the hands of police officers that was 2.8 times as high as that of white people.
It doesn't link to the study. It obviously counted Blacks like Michael Brown, who was shot while trying to kill a police officer. Yes, Blacks resist arrest a lot more than Whites, and when that happens, police need to use force. If you look at similar situations, Blacks are treated better than Whites.

Another article complains:
Dan Scavino, one of the president’s closest advisers, shared the cartoon by Ben Garrison, an alt-right artist who has been criticized for anti-Semitic imagery.
It doesn't link to the cartoon, and the major American news sites don't either. I had to find it in the London Daily Mail.

This is a good example of Jews complaining about anti-Semitism, when Jews don't even have anything to do with the story. I also had to read the Daily Mail for the anti-Semitism explanation. It is because the same cartoonist once drew a cartoon critical of George Soros. Apparently you cannot criticize George Soros without the NY Times calling you anti-Semitic.

Reason explains a new study:
Their conclusion? Psychopathic, manipulative, and narcissistic people are more frequent signalers of "virtuous victimhood."

The so-called "dark triad" personality traits — Machiavellianism, narcissism, and psychopathy — lead to characteristics like "self-promotion, emotional callousness, duplicity, and tendency to take advantage of others," the paper explains.

And "treated as a composite, the Dark Triad traits were significant predictors of virtuous victim signaling."

This held true "even when controlling for factors that may make people vulnerable to being mistreated or disadvantaged in society (i.e., demographic and socioeconomic characteristics) as well as the importance they place on being a virtuous individual as part of their self-concept," the researchers note.

They point out that virtue signaling is defined as "the conspicuous expression of moral values, done primarily with the intent of enhancing one's standing within a social group."
Okay, dark triad forces are at work.

I found this comment amusing:
It would be wrong to blame white women for any of this. Women are more conformist and submissive than men. They bow to what they think is powerful, respectable, and authoritative. It is not their fault that ideas that are destroying our country and our people have become authoritative. It is men — white men — who let that happen. Women will not change until we change.
I presume that Bari Weiss thought that she was just putting out the Jewish message that her employers thought that she should be delivering.

I think that the NY Times is just doing everything it can to incite Blacks to kill Whites. It is all going to get a lot worse if Joe Biden gets elected.

Another weird NY Times article starts:
A Republican Senate candidate recently declared herself “one of the thousands of digital soldiers” in service of QAnon, a convoluted pro-Trump conspiracy theory about a “deep state” of child-molesting Satanist traitors plotting against the president. A congressional candidate in Colorado who made approving comments about QAnon bested a five-term Republican incumbent in a primary last month.

And then there is Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia Republican who is perhaps the most unabashedly pro-QAnon candidate for Congress and has drawn a positive tweet from President Trump. She recently declared that QAnon was “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out.”
I guess the NY Times considers it anti-Semitic to attack child-molesting Satanist traitors.

Update: Here are examples of Bari Weiss advocating the extermination of non-Jews. Those got her promoted at the NY Times, not fired. Also, that site refers to her as a lesbian, but bisexual is probably more accurate. She was married to a man for three years.

Wikipedia says: In 2019, The Jerusalem Post named Weiss the seventh most influential Jew in the world.

Update: Bari Weiss identifies herself as a Jewish Zionist bisexual woman. At last report, she had dumped her husband and was dating another female writer.

Watergate prosecutor brags of a coup

NY Times op-ed:
In 1973, I served as an assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, which investigated the connection between the White House and the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters, the subsequent cover-up and other crimes connected with the White House under Richard Nixon. ...

We did not answer to the attorney general. We were not restricted from investigating or prosecuting Nixon, nor were we governed by any internal Justice Department rule that prohibited prosecuting a sitting president.
They led an unconstitutional coup.
From the start, Mr. Mueller was restrained by Justice Department regulations.
Yes, of course. That's the difference between a lawful process and a coup.

Congress was still free to bring any impeachment charges they wanted, and that is what the House did.
Upon completion of our investigation, we issued a report without anyone in the executive branch spinning its results.
Yes, they successfully ousted Nixon because he did not put up much of a fight.

I am not sure they did release their report. I see an Oct. 2018 news story saying Government finally releases Watergate report used against Nixon. So it was release 45 years later.

These articles just convince me that Pres. Nixon was innocent of any serious crimes. To oust him, they had to have a secret temp of Democrat DoJ lawyers who were out to get Nixon, and were allowed to act without any management oversight or regulation. The President's lawyer did not defend against the report, but instead cooperated in a plea agreement for his own crimes.

The column ends up saying that Trump commuting Roger Stone's sentence was worse that Nixon's Watergate crimes, and that we need a new special prosecutor law even tho such laws don't work.

This is pretty crazy. Stone was thought to be important because the Muller team hoped that he would be the link from the Trump campaign to Russian spies. But it turned out that the campaign asked Stone what he knew about the Russians, and Stone didn't know anything!

The DoJ caught Stone on a few exaggerations or misstatements, but they did not impede anyone's investigation. There is still a mystery about how WikiLeaks got the DNC emails, but Stone had no knowledge about it.

The DoJ lawyers recommended that Stone get up to 9 years in prison, and everyone now agrees that was excessive, including the judge. The judge said that the Trump administration was right to reduce sentence.

If there were really justice, then Stone would get his conviction reversed on appeal. Because the judge insisted on prison while the appeal is pending, Stone may not be able to appeal.

CNN doxxes its enemies

CNN News has doxxed another right-winger, and caused him to lose his job.
The NY Times piled on, and accused him of anonymous posting to message threads where others used racial slurs.

CNN and the NY Times have done this many times before. The NYT just doxxed and caused the shutdown of the popular Slate Star Codex blog. Meanwhile, they regularly offer and protect the anonymity of Trump-haters who claim to have inside info on what a terrible person Pres. Trump is. CNN even once publicly blackmailed someone, by saying that it would dox him if he expressed certain views online.

The NY Times also viciously persecuted the White Karen dog-walker who was threatened by a Black bird watcher.

They would say that it is their free speech right to dox whomever they please, regardless of how many lives are ruined. Legally, that is correct.

This is not just being done as part of news reporting. It is part of a systematic campaign to silence the Right. Recently Stefan Molyneux has been banned from YouTube and Twitter. He had thousands of videos, and most of them were more philosophical than political. I don't think he had any on Trump v. Biden yet, but it is hard to imagine him finding anything to say in favor of Biden. He had to be silenced before the Nov. election.

This effort to dox and censor is almost entirely led by Jews.

The endgame strategy is not merely to topple some statues and remove Pres. Trump from office. It is to exterminate their enemies.

Here is another example of someone being canceled, along with a groveling apology:
Boeing communications chief resigns over sexist article he wrote THREE DECADES ago opposing women's service in the military

Boeing's SVP of Communications, Niel Golightly, has resigned from his position over a sexist article he authored
The article, titled 'No Right to Fight' was published in December 1987 in the US Naval Institute magazine
It argued woman should not serve in combat and could affect morale
It is the fourth time the position has been vacated in three years
Boeing is still recovering from its 2019 737 Max crisis that saw more than 300 people killed in two plane crashes
He was expressing an opinion held by nearly every army in world history, if not all.
'My article was a 29-year-old Cold War navy pilot's misguided contribution to a debate that was live at the time,' Golightly said in a statement included in Boeing's announcement.

'My argument was embarrassingly wrong and offensive. The article is not a reflection of who I am; but nonetheless I have decided that in the interest of the company I will step down.'
If it were really wrong, then someone should be able to point out the errors. I doubt it. He is just bullied into submission instead.

The Dad is the butt of the joke

NPO reports
Scharrer, et al studied 32 different sit-coms that aired from 1980 – 2017. They examined 4,711 episodes in which there was at least one father and one child. Those episodes included 578 scenes in which a father was shown interacting with his child. The results are striking.

For example, the proportion of scenes in which Dad is disparaged by being the “butt of the joke” increased almost 60% from 1984 to 2017. The mean number of scenes per episode in which a father is shown in healthy interaction with his child, while never high, decreased from 1984 to 2017 when it stood at precisely zero. As of 2017, none of the sit-coms viewed had a single scene of positive father-child interaction.

Up slightly over the same time is the mean number of scenes per episode depicting fathers behaving incompetently or foolishly when engaged in parenting behavior.
Okay, but why?

Obviously, this does not happen by accident. It is deliberate policy. I am guess that if the study had looked at the religion of the sitcom makers, it might have noticed that they are not representative of the larger population. And they have leftist feminist ideologies.

I could be wrong. Maybe the explanation is that the viewers are mostly female, and they have a poor sense of humor. I am waiting for another study to sort this out.

Wokeness started over five years ago

The current political madness did not start with George Floyd. See this June 2019 article in the Jewish magazine Tablet:
sea change has taken place in American political life. The force driving this change is the digital era style of moral politics known as “wokeness,” a phenomenon that has become pervasive in recent years ... In reality, “wokeness” — a term that originated in black popular culture — is a broad euphemism for a more narrow phenomenon: the rapidly changing political ideology of white liberals that is remaking American politics.

Over the past decade, the baseline attitudes expressed by white liberals on racial and social justice questions have become radically more liberal. In one especially telling example of the broader trend, white liberals recently became the only demographic group in America to display a pro-outgroup bias—meaning that among all the different groups surveyed white liberals were the only one that expressed a preference for other racial and ethnic communities above their own. As woke ideology has accelerated, a growing faction of white liberals have pulled away from the average opinions held by the rest of the coalition of Democratic voters—including minority groups in the party. The revolution in moral sentiment among this one segment of American voters has led to a cascade of consequences ranging from changes in the norms and attitudes expressed in media and popular culture, to the adoption of new political rhetoric and electoral strategies of the Democratic Party.
This trend pre-dates Donald Trump's political career. I have complained about it on this blog for many years. Electing Trump was a response to it.

Some academics have posted an open letter for free speech. You would think that this would be non-controversial, but it had to be peppered with anti-Trump remarks in order to get any support at all. And once published, there was a flood of denunciations, such as from Sean M. Carroll.

A Princeton faculty letter starts:
Anti-Blackness is foundational to America. It plays a role in where we live and where we are welcome.
I would have thought that only White supremacists would say stuff like this, as a way of saying that America is for Whites, and not non-whites. But this letter is explicitly saying that non-whites should be the privileges ones.

Black Lives Matter is collecting many millions of dollars in donations. Many companies are donating as a way of proving their anti-racism. (As it is used today, anti-racism is a contraction of anti-white racism.)

So who would the Blacks use to collect that money? You think that maybe they would use Black people? Nope, a Jewish Communist feminist terrorist has control of it. If you don't believe me, see this Wash. Examiner article. She would still be in prison, but Pres. Clinton commuted her sentence. Her father was a Manhattan dentist and her mother a theatrical producer.

Trying to shame Sweden for having sense

The NY Times reports:
Ever since the coronavirus emerged in Europe, Sweden has captured international attention by conducting an unorthodox, open-air experiment. It has allowed the world to examine what happens in a pandemic when a government allows life to carry on largely unhindered. ...

“They literally gained nothing,” said Jacob F. Kirkegaard, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. “It’s a self-inflicted wound, and they have no economic gains.” ...

Sweden put stock in the sensibility of its people as it largely avoided imposing government prohibitions. The government allowed restaurants, gyms, shops, playgrounds and most schools to remain open.
So the Swedes got to eat at restaurants, exercise at gyms, shop in stores, play at playgrounds, attend schools, and live normal lives, while Americans were locked down in fear of a virus.

And the Swedes gained nothing?????

There is some debate about the Swedish experiment, but they seem to be doing better than the USA, as documented here. Swedes have a lower death rate, and less damage to the economy. And they are a whole lot closer to achieving herd immunity.

Sweden's economy was damaged to the extent that it is connected to the economies of other countries that did shut down.

The twisted world view of the NY Times is revealed by this article. It completely ignores personal freedom, and worships the god of GDP. If the USA borrows trillions of dollars to prop up its GDP, then that is not seen as a loss, by this silly analysis.

The NY Times, CNN, and other mainstream media have been telling us a number of lies about the coronavirus, and probably the biggest right now is that we are seeing a big increase in infections.

It seems to me that the number of infections was always about 10 times the number of confirmed cases, so an increase in confirmed cases is just a result of increased testing. So I expect the number of USA deaths per day to continue to go down. If I am wrong, and the leftist media is right, then we should see a big increase in deaths in the next week. We shall see. If it doesn't happen, then you will know that the media have been lying to you.

The USA is different

The reports:
The United States is different. In nearly every other high-income country, people have both become richer over the last three decades and been able to enjoy substantially longer lifespans.

But not in the United States. Even as average incomes have risen, much of the economic gains have gone to the affluent — and life expectancy has risen only three years since 1990. There is no other developed country that has suffered such a stark slowdown in lifespans.
The article goes to explain how Jews have brought in foreign workers in order to depress wages and bust the unions. It doesn't phrase it that way, but read between the lines. Another article calls this The Neoliberal Looting of America, and another says American workers are losing ground.

America was changed in the 1960s. We are still seeing the consequences of those changes.

RT reports:
A group of Black Lives Matter protesters in Washington DC marked July 4 by trampling on the American flag before setting it on fire, arguing that the US state symbol represents “slavery, genocide and war.” ...

Protesters rejoice when the banner finally catches fire, and then begin chanting as guided by one of the group’s leaders: “We knew what this flag represents: One, two, three, four, slavery, genocide and war, five, six, seven, eight, America was never great.”
The 4th of July was the origin of "All Men are created equal." The flag is the biggest anti-Confederate symbol.

While rioters go free, the Central Park Karen is being prosecuted:
“Today our office initiated a prosecution of Amy Cooper for falsely reporting an incident in the third degree,” Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the district attorney, said. “We are strongly committed to holding perpetrators of this conduct accountable.”

The episode occurred on Memorial Day. Ms. Cooper, who had been walking with her dog, encountered Christian Cooper, an avid bird watcher, in the Ramble, a semi-wild part of the park where dogs must be leashed.

Mr. Cooper asked Ms. Cooper, who is not related to him, to leash her dog, he said. When she refused, he said, he tried to lure the dog with treats in hopes of compelling her to restrain her pet.
She is not being prosecuted for walking her dog without a leash, and he is not being prosecuted for harassing her, her dog, and maligning her to get her fired from her job. Instead, she is being prosecuted for calling 911, and accurately reporting that an African-American made a threat against her.

Another NY Times essay rants:
We are having a Horton moment. White people previously oblivious to the worst kind of racial oppression had their obliviousness shattered by the images of a police officer killing George Floyd.

The dam burst, reality rushed in, and a critical mass of whites and others finally saw — and heard, and felt — Black people as they never had before.
White people learned that Blacks consider their biggest hero to be a criminal and junkie who recklessly spread Covid-19 and died of a heart attack from a fentanyl overdose.

We learned that the worst kind of racial oppression was a mix of White and non-white cops calling an ambulance and trying to save a Black junkie's life and he dies of an overdose.

Canceling Pinker and Columbus

Here is the latest cancel attack:
The Woke are after Pinker again, and if he’s called a racist and misogynist, as he is in this latest attempt to demonize him, then nobody is safe. After all, Pinker is a liberal Democrat who’s donated a lot of dosh to the Democratic Party, and relentlessly preaches a message of moral, material, and “well-being” progress that’s been attained through reason and adherence to Enlightenment values.
Pinker is a very distinguished professor at Harvard, and is in no danger of being fired. Even if he were fired, he has gotten rich from his books, and does not need anyone's money.

I have criticized Pinker many times on this blog. He is a leftist Jewish atheist Trump-hater.

But he believes in Truth, and that makes him a White supremacist.

Among the complaints against Pinker is that he once defended a Jewish columnist who criticized a big company for firing someone for telling the truth.

The London Daily Mail reports:
A bestselling children’s author has been sacked after expressing support for fellow writer J. K. Rowling in the bitter row over transgender rights.

In the latest example of ‘cancel culture’, novelist Gillian Philip was last week jettisoned from her role writing titles for a major publishing company.

It came after the writer, who has penned a popular series of books for eight-to-12-year-olds, added the hashtag #IStandWithJKRowling to her Twitter handle.
So she is deprived of her livelihood for agreeing with another author that women are women.

In the coming revolution, people like her will be killed.

Statues of Christipher Columbus are being destroyed, also because a Minnesota junkie overdosed.

What is the purpose of that? There is no doubt that Columbus made a discovery that changed the world, and made modern life possible. Is that not something to celebrate?

I doubt that anyone really has a beef with Columbus or the statues. Columbus is just an excuse for rioters to show power, and to intimidate White culture. They will keep destroying, until somebody stops them.

Knighthood medal is racist


The London Daily Mail reports:
The Cabinet Office has said recipients of the Queen's 'racist' knighthood honour can exchange the award for an updated design after after a petition was launched claiming its insignia is 'racist' and 'looks similar to George Floyd's killing'.

The insignia for the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George - one of the Queen's highest honours - once featured a picture of a white angel standing on the neck of a black man.

The image, which was changed in 2011 to feature a light-skinned devil, is actually a depiction of the Archangel Michael defeating Satan. ...

An image on the badge shows St Michael trampling on a prostrate Satan, but campaigners say it looks like the recent killing of Mr Floyd.
George Floyd lived a life of crime, and died of a heart attack over overdosing on fentanyl in Minnesota. And somehow people in England think that relating an award symbolically showing defeat of the devil?!

The madness has spread worldwide.

It used to be that one could celebrate White culture with country music and NASCAR. Not any more. Everyone is trying to exterminate White culture now.

The Evil of the Trolley Problem

More and more, it appears that mainstream media is encouraging a movement to kill Whites. From NPR Radio news:
A type of discrimination is overlooked because it's rooted, not in hate, but in love. Our Hidden Brain team asks why good deeds, those we do for spouses or neighbors, can sometimes lead to injustice. ...

SHANKAR VEDANTAM: Thought experiments in philosophy usually don't go viral, but there's one that has.

JOSHUA GREENE: The trolley problem has become a kind of meme.

VEDANTAM: This is Joshua Greene.

GREENE: I'm a professor in the psychology department at Harvard University. And I study moral decision-making and high-level cognition. ...

In this version of the thought experiment, five strangers will be saved if you sacrifice someone you know and love, maybe even your own child. ...

DYLAN MATTHEWS: I would kill the kid. Yeah. I wouldn't even question it. Like, it's five against one. I would probably kill myself after out of grief. And so it would be five against two. But, yeah, those people are all the heroes of their own stories. And they all have loved ones who love them as much as I love the kid. And it seems obscene to me to treat my attachment as paramount above their attachments and their lives.
That's right, they are promoting you killing your own child in order to save five strangers.

This sort of thinking could lead to killing the St. Louis McCloskeys in order to promote the BLM movement.

This is madness. We are headed for Civil War, unless people wise up.

Anyone who would values the lives of strangers over his own child is suffering a severe mental illness. Sometimes it is called pathological altruism. Matthews says that he gave a kidney to a stranger. This is not noble in any way. it is sick.

A lot of people are now saying that we should care about Hong Kong Chinese losing the right to riot. Why should anyone in the West care about a privileged Chinese elite having a right to riot?

We have riots in the USA, and they are not improving the lives of anyone. Not Whites, and not Blacks. They threaten, they intimidate, they destroy, and they loot. No, this is not freedom.

We have less free speech. Fewer jobs. A wrecked economy.

Everybody understands that this is all destructive. I don't think anyone really believes the BLM nonsense. No one can even come up with any examples of Blacks being mistreated.

My theory is that leftist crazies have seized upon the opportunity for gaining power. Establishment Democrats, Jews, and rich people are going along with it because they think that Pres. Trump's reelection chances have been destroyed. Republicans have been intimidated, and are cowards. No one is willing to do what needs to be done, or even to say what needs to be said.

Climate change hysteria, and other hoaxes

Michael Shellenberger writes in Quillette:
Here are some facts few people know:
Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”
The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”
Climate change is not making natural disasters worse
Fires have declined 25 percent around the world since 2003
The amount of land we use for meat—humankind’s biggest use of land—has declined by an area nearly as large as AlaskaThe build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and CaliforniaCarbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s
The Netherlands became rich, not poor while adapting to life below sea levelWe produce 25 percent more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter
Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change
Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels
Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture

... Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said “The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.” Britain’s most high-profile environmental group claimed “Climate Change Kills Children.”

The world’s most influential green journalist, Bill McKibben, called climate change the “greatest challenge humans have ever faced” and said it would “wipe out civilizations.” Mainstream journalists reported, repeatedly, that the Amazon was “the lungs of the world,” and that deforestation was like a nuclear bomb going off.
As a result, half of the people surveyed around the world last year said they thought climate change would make humanity extinct. And in January, one out of five British children told pollsters they were having nightmares about climate change.
He is right. The climate change hysteria is just another hoax being perpetrated on the public.

I am making a list of such hoaxes. It includes Russiagate and many others.

The NY Times Magazine has a long bitter article on:
America’s Enduring Caste System Our founding ideals promise liberty and equality for all. Our reality is an enduring racial hierarchy that has persisted for centuries.
So what is the evidence?

The main example is that the author once tried to interview some Chicago merchant for the NY Times, but he refused to talk to her when she was unable to produce any ID or business card showing that she was really with the NY Times. She implied that if she looked Jewish, the man would have granted the interview.

She also has a story about a Black man who was under suspicion for babysitting two White kids. Some Karen called the cops, and then let it go when the parents said that it was okay.

That's it. That's the evidence that we have a caste system, just like India.

Another NY Times columnist writes:
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” he once asked, ...

As an immigrant from South Africa, ... I am in favor of throwing America’s borders wide open to much of the world. ... American exceptionalism is impossible without immigration. ... The only way to do that is to invite in the other 95 percent. ...

If we keep shutting foreigners out, what justifies our arrogant assumption that the world’s best and brightest will keep wanting to come here?

Consider, for instance, Rwanda,
So if trends continue, he argues, people from Rwanda might not want to come here, and Norway might not let Americans in. Too bad it is too late to send him back to South Africa, where he could witness his leftist ideologies in action.

This is madness.

The editors of the NY Times cannot really be this stupid. I am beginning to think that we are being set up for Civil War 2.0.

November election will not be fair

Sen. Joe Biden said this in 1977, in defense of racial segregation in the schools:
Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions having built so high that it is going to explode at some point. We have got to make some move on this.
Now Biden is a senile puppet, and his puppetmasters are promoting the racial jungle.

Physics blogger Lubos Motl writes:
Back in 1938, Adolf Hitler persuaded the Britons that he was a Gentleman and that the Germans in Czechoslovakia were discriminated against – which was a complete Nazi lie, just like the lies about the discrimination of blacks today: the German minority in Czechoslovakia was the most amazingly treated and thriving German minority in the world history (surely by GDP, the numbers of schools, published books, and lawmakers per capita). Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Treaty, "the peace for our time".

Everyone in Czechoslovakia – which had been vigorously competing in arms races since the early 1930s, to become an important enough part of a broader anti-Nazi coliation – knew that it was complete nonsense and Chamberlain was clueless about politics. Instead of preserving peace, Chamberlain signed a clear plan towards a big war. Hitler himself was shocked that he got the Sudetenland for free. ...

I find it obvious that the Nazis were way more tolerant – at least towards "sufficiently ordinary people who live sufficiently normal lives" – than the extreme leftists are today. They did lots of terrible things but those were already acts "during the war" when brutalities become more ordinary than they are in the peaceful times. I am rather certain that the BLM-like loons would do worse things than the Nazis if they could.
He argues that Pres. Trump should refuse to leave office, even if he loses the Nov. election.

It is looking less and less likely that we will have a fair election. The anti-Trump forces have seized the major newspapers, TV channels, and now the social media. Foreign influences have already sabotaged Trump's Tulsa rally. The presidential debates will probably be canceled. Polling places are being shut down in favor of non-anonymous and untested mail-in ballots. There will be no free and open debate about the issues of the day.

The future is Black

The NY Times announces:
Based on those discussions, we’ve decided to adopt the change and start using uppercase “Black” to describe people and cultures of African origin, both in the United States and elsewhere. ...

We recently decided to capitalize “Native” and “Indigenous,” while other ethnic terms like “Asian-American” and “Latino” have always been capitalized.

We will retain lowercase treatment for “white.” While there is an obvious question of parallelism, there has been no comparable movement toward widespread adoption of a new style for “white,” and there is less of a sense that “white” describes a shared culture and history. Moreover, hate groups and white supremacists have long favored the uppercase style, which in itself is reason to avoid it.
It is true that most Whites are not race-conscious at all. Whites are the least racist of all the races.

It is primarily the White-haters who draw attention to Whites as a distinctive race. They are the ones who are always talking about White privilege, White supremacy, and other anti-White terms.

This change just puts a clearer focus on the NY Times anti-White bias.
