Now I am going to tell you why BLM is a hustle, and how it came to this. Here is an opening to that honest conversation about race everyone’s been pretending to ask for. That’s been a hustle too, so far, because when anybody actually ventures to launch it, the cries of “racist” shut it down.

The BLM hustle has turned into a violent insurrection supported by a body of bad ideas geared to driving the nation insane. The action on-the-ground is like the Jacobin phase of the French Revolution seasoned with the murderous derangement of Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution. As biologist Bret Weinstein said in his podcast last week with linguistics prof John McWhorter: “If you attempt a Maoist takeover of the US, you’ll get a civil war.”

What we’re seeing in the looting and burning, the “canceling” of careers and lives, the toppling of statues and the attempt to rewrite history, the pathetic obeisance of political leaders to raging mobs, and the lives lost in senseless acts of violence is the unfinished business of the civil rights movement. That business was the full participation of Black citizens in American life. The main grievance now is that Black Americans are still denied full participation due to “systemic racism.” That’s a dodge. What actually happened is that Black America opted out and lost itself in a quandary of its own making with the assistance of their white dis-enablers, the well-intentioned “progressives.”

Let me take you back to the mid-20th century. America had just fought and won a war against manifest evil. The nation styled itself as Leader of the Free World. That role could not be squared with the rules of Jim Crow apartheid, so something had to change. The civil rights campaign to undo racial segregation under law naturally began in the courts in cases such as Brown v. Board of Education (1954). So-called public accommodations — hotels, theaters, restaurants, buses, bathrooms, water fountains, etc. — remained segregated. By the early 1960s, the clamor to end all that took to the streets under the emerging moral leadership of Martin Luther King and his credo of non-violent civil disobedience.

Many acts of non-violent street protest were met by police using fire-hoses, vicious dogs, and batons to terrorize the marchers. This only shamed and horrified the rest of the nation watching on TV and actually quickened the formation of a political consensus to end American apartheid. That culminated in the passage of three major federal laws: the Public Accommodations Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968.

Meanwhile, something else was going on among Black Americans: not everybody believed in Dr. King’s non-violence, and not everybody was so sure about full participation in American life. Altogether, Black America remained ambivalent and anxious about all that. That full participation implied a challenge to compete on common ground. What if it didn’t work out? An alternate view emerged, personified first by Malcolm X, who called MLK an “Uncle Tom,” and then by the younger generation, Stokely Carmichael, the Black Panthers and others retailing various brands of Black Power, Black Nationalism, and Black Separatism. It amounted, for some, in declining that invitation to participate fully in American life. “No thanks. We’ll go our own way.” That sentiment has prevailed ever since.

So, the outcome to all that federal legislation of the 1960s turned out not to be the clear-cut victory (like World War Two) that liberals and progressives so breathlessly expected. The civil rights acts had some startling adverse consequences, too. They swept away much of the parallel service and professional economy that Blacks had constructed to get around all the old exclusions of everyday life. With that went a lot of the Black middle-class, the business owners especially. In its place, the liberal-and-progressive government provided “public assistance” — a self-reinforcing poverty generator that got ever worse, especially in big cities where de-industrialization started destroying the working-class job base beginning in the 1970s. The catch was that Black America did not ask for or demand an end to those poverty-generating “welfare” programs. Rather, they objected loudly to changing them. It was, of course and unfortunately, a form of addiction.

How did white liberals and progressives react to all that? Increasingly with shame, disappointment, consternation, and amazement that the civil rights campaign had worked out so imperfectly. Despite all their idealism, American life had not become a nirvana of equality, fraternity, and amity. In the most troubled places, the urban ghettos, the statistical markers of out-of-wedlock births, crime, drug use, failure in school were getting demonstrably worse year by year. It was embarrassing, confusing, galling to the sociology professors, the congressional staffers, the school boards, the media pundits, the arts community, the literati, the clergy… really everybody who had hoped to right all the wrongs of history in their lifetime.

The solution was multiculturalism and diversity. These credos declared that a society didn’t require a common culture, a consensus about behaviors, manners, and values. Multiculturalism and diversity (M & D) provided a rich repertory of rationales for moral grandstanding, not to mention countless well-paid jobs administering institutional policy, without requiring anything of anyone. But, contrary to good intentions once again, that didn’t work. It only increased friction between groups of people and induced more failure.

For example, the language problem. Black children in the centers of poverty were not learning how to speak English coherently. Their poor language skills were arguably a greater impediment to success in school, and in adult life later on, than the color of their skin. Yet the dogmas of M & D militated against fixing that. And, of course, it is still a deep taboo to broach the subject. Really, America, if you want to begin somewhere, require the teaching of language skills in the schools. If you continue to deny it, you are condemning people to failure.

Eventually, M & D evolved into the identity politics that turned the universities into lunatic asylums and finally infected the already badly fragmenting culture at large. The figments and phantoms that preoccupy “woke” revolutionaries are a product of that still-vibrant shame, disappointment, and hysteria that progressive America feels about the outcome of the long civil rights campaign. That is what all those Ivy League Maoists are acting out in the streets now, abetted by their elders in the Democratic Party establishment, the city halls, and the state houses.

The economic collapse underway is intensifying these quandaries, paradoxes, and predicaments because from now on life is going to get much more difficult for everybody in the USA. It will require everybody to get more serious about what actions they can take, what behaviors they can follow, in order to remain civilized. Do we really want it to become a fight over the table-scraps of history, or can we clear the phantoms out of our heads and play it straight for a change?

    Did we ever figure out What-the-Hell the empty slogan “Black Lives Matter” means concretely and practically speaking? Or, is BLM like one of those primitive Asmat spirit totem poles that you see in the Oceanic section of the Metropolitan Museum of Art?

    We’ve given up on a Republican form of government in favor of being governed by a nincumpoop mob of ignorant, loudmouthed priests who worship the BLM spirit pole and who are financed by corporations who view the people as hopeless, complete morons. It’d be like Pepsi Cola marketing soda pop to some primitive tribe in the Amazon jungle and running the village?

    “What does BLM mean? Hell, I don’t know…. But I do know that in this village you’re supposed to worship it otherwise they’ll cut off your head and poke a hole on your skull and suck your brains out. That’s how things roll now in this village.”

      BLM and Antifa need a name change to BMM.
      Why you might ask?
      Because both movements are full of shit hence BMM = bowel movements matter.
      If BLM actually cared about black people they would be in Detroit and Chicago fighting black on black crime and shutting down planned parenthood after all those two situations kill more black people in one year than Cops have killed in the last thirty years.
      As far as Antifa they are the very

        • Sredni Vashtar July 3, 2020 at 1:18 pm #

          Because they both use violence? In fact, the Nazis fought these same people and defeated them in Germany.

          This is the problem we when boys are taught by female teachers: all fighting is equally wrong. Doesn’t matte who started it or what is was about: All Just Wrong.

          This also is something eating away at our Culture. Men must fight and it matters what they are fighting for.

        Anybody here recall seeing the photo of the three year old Black girl who was sitting in her car seat in Chicago three weeks ago and was murdered by a Black gangster?

        Her name was Sincere Gaston. Her photo and name should replace that of George Floyd.

        A little humbling (if it’s even possible) for BLM and Democrat politicians is in order.

    • K-Dog July 3, 2020 at 12:08 pm #

      Yes the history lesson left that part out with a lot of other things too. I’ll explain. Here is what John Mcworter actually said. I listened to the convo too. Bret Weinstein together with John McWhorter was a treat I noticed in my You-Tube suggestions a week ago. A two-fer I could not pass up.

      I think what I’m seeing in the street reminds me far too much of Maoism and that if you attempt a Maoist takeover in the US you will get a civil war. So I am very concerned that we are much closer to a brink that…

      The Marxism being talked about was the Maoism of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. A forced takeover by an ideology which eliminates rivals if need be by force. In the case of the Chinese Cultural Revolution it was communism which needed to be purged of capitalism and traditional elements.

      In the case of America a similar thing is going on. The cultural revolution ushered in capitalism in China, it did not destroy it at all. The Chinese communist party embraced capitalism while pretending to destroy it. BLM embraces racism and class distinction while pretending to fight it in the same way.

      Black lives matter pretends to fight racism by being elitist. The black lives matter god is a jealous god which will have no other gods before it. In particular the Christian religion is the big enemy. The founding tenet of Christianity is equality of all before god. All men are equal before our maker and if we want our maker happy that is the kind of society the big Kahuna want to see..

      Mark 12:30 : “This is the most important: ‘Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One. 30and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”…

      Love thy neighbor as thyself, there is not room for ambiguity.

      But all lives matter is now racist. The new BLM religion will have no other gods before it. Christianity must go.

      • K-Dog July 3, 2020 at 12:29 pm #

        And the part about statues being ripped down. Let them come down. The statues are not real history and were an attempt by the South to keep old animosities alive.

        Confederate statues were erected mostly by the United Daughters of the Confederacy a century ago. Their fake news is responsible for most of the 718 statues. I though Francis Scott Key coming down was a bit much then I found out about the un-sung parts of the national anthem.

        >And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
        That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
        A home and a Country should leave us no more?
        Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
        No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,

        The ‘where is that band refers to the Colonial Marines who were black Escaped Slaves fighting for the British in the war of 1812. They helped take Washington DC and burn the White House. They were total badasses and why? Had the British won they would have freed the slaves. Francis Scott Key was a total racist. Let his statue be melted along with the other 700+.

            You don’t have to pick one over the other. A giant bronze statue of a Happy Meal does not have to replace the offensive shit. The offensive shit just needs to come down. Don’t spin yourself a false narrative. You don’t have to.

          • Rupert July 3, 2020 at 1:50 pm #

            K-Dog, oh but I do. What replaces our heroes, history, and monuments will either be naught or something -I- find offensive and alien.

            I’d imagine the sort of people that Antifa and BLM think of as ‘heroic’ are people I’d not piss on if they were on fire.

          • K-Dog July 3, 2020 at 2:02 pm #

          Re: Key, that’s one way to look at it… another would be like how the Hungarian Carpathian group who fought with the Nazis were viewed by the Allies… guilt by association and all that. When invaders are burning down your capital, it’s a little difficult to see the allies of those invaders in a flattering light.

          Speaking of totalitarianism, another way to view statues of Washington et al coming down would be with a “Wo man Bucher verbrennt, verbrennt man am Ende auch Menschen” slant (a quick substitute of Statuen for Bucher does the trick). Sorry no Umlauts at my disposal.

            This starts slow so ignore the parts you don’t agree with Ken Burns becomes delightfully eloquent in describing Confederate statues and monuments. He explains that they represent a false narrative.

            A very detailed explanation is given here. I learned what I posted about the unsung verses off the national anthem in this video. I found out Francis Scott Key was a pig on my own.

            Jeffery Robinson discusses the dark history of Confederate symbols.

            “As regards the erection of such a monument as is contemplated; my conviction is, that however grateful it would be to the feelings of the South, the attempt in the present condition of the Country, would have the effect of retarding, instead of accelerating its accomplishment; & of continuing, if not adding to, the difficulties under which the Southern people labour,” Robert E. Lee wrote in an 1866 letter to Thomas Rosser, a former Confederate general.

            But for some of you even the words of the commander of the Army of Northern Virginia won’t be enough.

            @K-Dog

            I don’t disagree with the removal of Confederate monuments per se. I don’t disagree with your explanation of why they were put up in the first place. I don’t particularly have any fondness for anybody who romanticizes the Confederacy.

            Mobs roaming the streets tearing down whatever hurts their fee-fees though? I do disagree with that.

            And if the mob begins to tear down monuments that don’t quite fit that narrow Confederacy standard but still give them a sad? Then as I see it, another mob that believes those monuments should stand has an equal right (responsibility?) to ensure that they do so… if necessary by force. You can not pick which flavors of anarchy you like and which you don’t. Once it’s on, it’s on (that’s exactly what the Weinstein quote in the post above is correctly pointing out).

          • K-Dog July 3, 2020 at 3:04 pm #

            Mobs roaming the streets tearing down whatever hurts their fee-fees though? I do disagree with that.

            Me too.. We just had the CHAZ/CHOP here. I know other stuff is happening other places. Everybody seems to be having their own local issues. That is another can of worms I don’t want to open.

            Fact is though black people really do get screwed by the police all the time. Police have gotten very powerful and are starting to screw everybody and that means black people get doubled down on. I have seen it with my own eyes many times. Oppression is a growth industry and America is at a breaking point.

            The touched among us are acting out. They smell something the way four legged creatures know a thunderstorm approaches. They can’t explain it they just know. You bark at the symptom but not the cause.

            Black people live in fear of the police for good reason.

          • Sredni Vashtar July 3, 2020 at 3:19 pm #

            No studies have shown Whites get killed by cops at a higher rate.

            Blacks aren’t afraid. Rioting is not a sign of fear but of strength. How can one man be so confused about everything?

            They want everything White and everything Christian DOWN. Watch the news. Get out of your head and back to the “realer” world at least once a day.

          • King of Comedy July 3, 2020 at 5:38 pm #

            @K

            The notion of cops killing blacks at exorbitant rates (one of the more extreme hysterics described it as a “genocide”) is a myth. Simply not supported by any objective statistical analysis.

            The notion of cops pulling over/ticketing blacks at exorbitant rates is a fact. Supported by abundant objective statistical analysis.

            The notion that things like redlining had a deleterious effect on black populations is a fact.

            The notion that black populations are killing each other in epidemic proportions is a fact.

            Most crime is intra-racial; however violent inter-racial crime is highly skewed in one direction: black offender, white victim, generally to the tune of 75-80% of 600K cases on an annual basis as far back as records are kept. An objective fact.

            etc, etc, etc

            Some facts can be changed by government intervention; some facts can only be changed by blacks themselves. There is no magic pill, no protest, no nothing, that can substitute for the work necessary to make some of those facts no longer factual.

            Regarding motivation, the aforementioned Mr. Weinstein, when asked what he thought the intentions of the extreme left, particularly the black extreme left, was, stated that he believed the end goal was not equality but a “turning of the tables”, a racial reversal of the “oppressor” and the “oppressed”. Some of the BLM displays are pretty clearly aimed in that direction and if that is indeed the case, then there will be war.

          Close believe it or not, what you miss on accident because you are on the feminine side of the political divide is that the UDC were women and hence had to over react to be seen as moral or “nice”, they partially succeeded. Of course their men were cucked and allowed them their extravagance which per Lee should not have been.

          If you have ever read Mencken and hurry before he is accused of anti-semitism he went round and round with the Southern ladies and had them all a flustered, but every reply from them to Mencken was moralism, theirs.

          As an aside about White female moralism a fine example would be Libbie Custer’s “Camping on the Great Plains” literally a third of each chapter details how moral she is, to me it became unreadable. Hurry though her descriptions of blacks is not up to Woke standards, and Custer and Libbie will be thrown out of West Point.

          K-Dog,

          Let’s hear your arguments about why they’re tearing down statues of Abraham Lincoln, as well as a bunch of abolitionists.

          Were these the heroes of the confederacy you mentioned?

          No. These actions have no other purpose than to humiliate white people, and to frighten them into inaction.

          I cannot look at American pop-culture WITHOUT seeing the tremendous influence black culture has contributed. And I mean ‘contributed’ in a good way. I cannot imagine what my life would have been like without those contributions and I cherish them.

          When I see the black lives that have made those contributions, I see people who were rewarded quite well in this society, and I see some that have built upon those rewards, and some who have squandered them.

          I will NEVER accept the admonition of those who make tens of millions of dollars per year playing games about the part of the culture that is my contribution being racist in any way. I will never accept the notion that the efforts of the abolitionists who gave their lives to end slavery are to be canceled. I will never accept that those who CONVINCED the world that slavery was wrong and should be ended somehow did that in vain. I will never BEND the KNEE to BLM.

          To me, the people who are burning and looting and killing and destroying are INGRATES who just want MOAR handouts.

          And once again, I have to say you are full of it.

          • K-Dog July 4, 2020 at 2:23 pm #

            Let’s hear your arguments about why they’re tearing down statues of Abraham Lincoln, as well as a bunch of abolitionists.

            I don’t know, I’m not the one doing it and I don’t approve of it. so you can put where the sun don’t shine or go fuck yourself! Better yet why don’t you APOLOGIZE to me. Because.

            Who do you think you are telling me I am full of it. I’m not doing any lof the ripping down, and further asshole what is up with this?

            I will never accept the notion that the efforts of the abolitionists who gave their lives to end slavery are to be canceled.

            Well Rootiee Too Too – me too.

            The link is to the story of Sheldon Peck.

            And >that is why I don’t accept the virtue signaling white guilt which defines the current popular religious cult. White guilt denies the abolitionist. (I thought Lincoln was on the winning side so his stature should be safe. Correct me if I am wrong and he was a Confederate.)

            I think that the only thing we are going to agree on is that among the rabble there are no leaders. They agitated are venting emotions but have no clear demands or goals. They are very confused and know nothing of American history.

            I’m serious about the apology. I am weary of forever being called ‘left’ because I have opinions of my own. I am a square peg and I already told you what you can do with your round hole. I’d prefer not to have to do it again.

        Well you just contradicted yourself since they want all statues down, all that are White. Nothing to do with the Confederacy per se any more. Or do you already know this and are just making “a statement”?

          Already started on the churches- the Anglicans in England taking the lead, of course, but if things don’t change we’ll also be losing out on the monuments and naming of St. Louis.

          I suppose they can change the name of St. Louis to Brownsville (for Michael Brown, you see). Doubly fitting, that one.

        • K-Dog July 3, 2020 at 1:59 pm #

          Well you just contradicted yourself since they want all statues down,. You are confused again, but what’s new. There is no contradiction because I’m talking about what I want, not them.

          Traveling with my parents into the south, I must of been 12 years old. I saw my first confederate statue. I said to myself

          ‘What the fuck is up with this’

          A black man was crossing the street not far away. He did not notice us or the statue and was intent on crossing the street. I felt like screaming at him. Have you seen this? That would have of course been stupid, he lived there. My parents acted like this was no big deal. I was beginning to understand that adults were stupid and I was not happy.

          • Sredni Vashtar July 3, 2020 at 2:54 pm #

            A crazed little ideologue even then. Whites need pride just like Blacks do, just like everybody does. Are you against racism or just against Whites? Don’t answer – think about it.

            And if our pride gets in the way of their pride of vice versa, then there is no answer in the current system. The Blacks have said the only answer is them taking over and destroying all of our pride and heritage. Do you accept this? We do not.

      Black lives only seem to matter when a black American is killed by a police officer, preferably a white officer. I don’t recall reading about any black poverty pimps visiting Chicago to console surviving members of the 92 people killed in that city in June. They only seem to show up when there is a government agency involved that can be shaken down for a large settlement. So far this year (through July 3), 346 people have killed in that city, mostly blacks killing other blacks. Only three of the homicides involved police, according to heyjackass.com. Most of the victims have been black as have most of the known assailants. Most of the assailants are unknown.

        The Red Guards and BLM both seek revolutionary change in existing culture. Both espouse a party line driven by simplistic dogma. Both employs the “dictatorship of the proletariat” through mob action. Neither accept apology, but demand abject humiliation from their targets, and their social and fiscal destruction. Both destroyed monuments to existing culture. Both, real and metaphorically, ban and burn books, movies and objects of art.

        The only real difference that I see between the two groups is that the Red Guards did not steal for their own personal benefit.

    I can’t imagine that “we’re going to play it straight for a change.” When the pie is shrinking, the competition for what remains becomes fierce. The outcome of that competition does not favor the weak and we could have a discussion about which race is in a weaker position. Generally, whites as an agglomeration seem as weak and dissolute as it has ever been; whining and sniveling fools, besotted with bread and circus. But, you have 2-3 generations of a destroyed black family with all of those consequences. The blacks don’t seem to want to work hard and responsibly anymore than the whites. H-m-m-m, what does that leave to make the Long Emergency – Asians, Latinos? Let the battle begin!

    • Vadrosaul July 3, 2020 at 10:30 am #

      Definitely east Asians. Their collective clarity of purpose, backed by brainwashed generations believing the CCP as Gods on Earth, unabashed nationalism, soul-crushing work ethic, and the West’s refusal to demand integration abroad, all of this has fostered a group that is set to easily defeat those others you mentioned.

      It will be a future with less freedoms, a hard new language to learn, but it is the future that’s clearly ahead of us. Just look how easy it was for China to take over the last holdout of freedom near to them, and how easy it was to gaslight the west about the nature of COVID.

    In the aftermath of the McDuffy riots in Miami it was discovered that the death of the black community did in fact begin with desegregation, which destroyed the “captive markets” that black-owned/black-only business had enjoyed. The other part was that when Miami blacks were just on the cusp of enfranchisement, the Establishment started pouring all of its money and energy into newly-arrived Cuban emigres (who swooped down and got all the minority set-asides, despite being white looking in the first wave and voting Republican). Miami is a special case, but nationally the liberal/progressive establishment showed the same inclination to throw their black toys to the bottom of the toy chest and to start playing with their Hispanic, Muslims, and finally intersex action figures. And yet the rhetorical and cultural obsession with black people, the Negrophilia, has just made a massive comeback. It’s as if the progressive/liberal establishment is acting from guilt, like a man who’s been cheating on his wife smothering her with gifts.

    • Sredni Vashtar July 3, 2020 at 1:25 pm #

      Yes, Blacks should be against open borders more than any, but sure enough, BLM promotes the same idiotic open borders credo that the Democrats do and that the Communists always have – at least theoretically. Nationalism tends to arise quickly though once they take power.

      And for regular Whites – nothing as usual. We are the ones whom the Mob can get at. But they will be coming for bigger game.

      • SpeedyBB July 4, 2020 at 5:55 am #

        I would venture to say that ageism (ugly term, but accurate) is perhaps the most pervasive. One fine essay in the London Review of Books was essentially a plaintive description of how, as an older woman, the writer became an “invisible woman”: shop clerks and other salespeople would unconsciously “filter her out”, prompting her to assert herself (“Oh another grumpy wrinkly”). She would be humored by strangers, assuming she was losing it.

        The way elders are portrayed in the media is uniformly as objects of ridicule, out of touch, bumbling, unable to stay up with events.

        The young, on the other hand, are presumed to have All the Answers. Only the young think this (and commercial sponsors pander to the conceit).

        I ended a rather lengthy internet relationship with one Tony Cochran, a classical wokester living with his boyfriend in homophobic Poland (poor choice of domicile, Tony), and espousing various lost causes – such as promoting “rainbow tolerance” in Africa (where LGBT are routinely assaulted and jailed if not killed). I asked Tony whether he planned to present himself as “out” to the public when he visited Liberia. He demurred: he may have been deluded but he wasn’t suicidal.

        The end of our exchanges came with him cursing me as “old”. I consider that a telling remark, and one quite common among these righteous young wahhabi SJWs.

        To me the brash radicalized young are a classical model of the “useful fool” Lenin refers to, to be used and discarded once power is assumed by the wicked puppeteers.

      Well, the question is not whether young black people listen to old white men like me. The question is really whether ‘they’, if they take over the culture, can build something stable and just with the principles they espouse. In other words, is a new civilization possible with what the protesters bring to the table.
      Yes, old people today are dying and are leaving it to the next generation, as it should be, but have we left them with the tools to carry on in the Long Emergency?

      Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the self-hating white, born of reaping the endless comforts and benefits brought into the world by men he couldn’t possibly hope to emulate, shielded from the vicissitudes and innate cruelty of life by the very people he despises. An evolutionary dead end and a cautionary tale rolled up into one prostrated form. Something heretofore unseen among the myriad civilizations that have existed upon the earth because to borrow from Lincoln’s “a house divided”, an individual who despises his origins cannot stand. A product of decadence and the absence of struggle. He and his ilk are an enemy and should be treated as such; make no mistake about it.

      Bret Weinstein (cited in the post above) in addition to being one of the earliest victims of the woke monsters and one of their most devastating critics is an evolutionary biologist and has talked in that capacity about distrust of the “other” as a “latent program” in the brains of all modern humans. In human prehistory when resources were scarce and survival was precarious, the “other” was an existential threat. Natural selection is not for those with delicate sensibilities and the early humans who protected their own survived; those who couldn’t make the cut did not.

      I suspect the latent program Weinstein speaks of is activating with increasing frequency across the land (the “white old man” and his fellow travelers notwithstanding).

      • BackRowHeckler July 3, 2020 at 1:22 pm #

      I used to work for an org. with a lot of ex cops, and on lunch break some of the senior execs (all ex cops) would openly and crudely talk about all kinds of people they messed with, exploited, or hassled.

    Looks like I am going to get my first opportunity to bash our host for what he has written here today. Say Jim, why do you think that your history lesson has any value whatsoever? Why do you think that anyone is going to read it, remember it to be true (as only we older folk can do), and put any value in it at all? Surely you understand that the truth of today is whatever it is that THEY say it is and that “history” is quickly re-written on a constant, ongoing basis to support the agendas of what THEY are all about. Don’t you know that George Washington was a racist slave owner and that Martin Luther King was a womanizer? I have come to understand that, as you so often quote, “anything goes and nothing really matters”, and THAT is the only rule of the day.

    Any of you that put any faith in today’s history lesson, true as it may be, may as well convert to Christianity for you are all about to be thrown to the lions. If you are confused as to what that will entail, follow me for I am well on the road to the Coliseum.

    • JohnAZ July 3, 2020 at 11:10 am #

      Everyone just loves to call the southern Founding Fathers racists.

      If you own a piece of a company as your capital pool in today’s society, are you a stockist?

      If you own a piece of property are you a Landist?

      In the world of the 1600 and 1700’s, in the section of the US that promoted agriculture, Black slaves were investments, and by the Civil War, they were the primary wealth of the aristocracy of the South. Not right by today’s standards, but the norm of the time. To undo this system cost the US more American lives than every other war combined. The Antebellum South was destroyed by the 13th amendment.

      The history of slavery has many components, European, American and African. People were currency to these entrepreneurs of the time. Black Africans did genocide to other tribes by selling them off to folks who just took them away to somewhere else. Just like Roman times, what do you do with overtaken ethnic groups that you conquer, enslave them.

      In the future, will statues of Warren Buffet, Bill Gates etc., be taken down because they are stockists?

      Defining old behaviors as evil against current standards is stupidity. Statues representing the Evils of the past do exactly that, remind us of that evil so it is not repeated.

      Folks today should concentrate on learning from history, and using the lessons to progress. Too much to ask, maybe?

      • benr July 3, 2020 at 11:21 am #

        I have often asked this question but will do so again.

        The new world was rife with slavery and no other country had to fight a long protracted war to end it.
        It just ended all on its own everywhere accept Africa and mIddle east.
        Might things be better if Lincoln had left it alone for another twenty or thirty years and slavery simply expired from its own cancerous self?

        No other nation seems to have the turmoil about blacks like America does.
        I suspect deep down most black people still feel inferior in some way which is why they tend to anger quickly and never seem happy even when they have good job, a nice house, and a good life.

        Happy 4th to all Americans even those of you that hate your country and want it pulled down into the muck.

        • Walter B July 3, 2020 at 11:31 am #

          An interesting idea and yes, it might have worked out better and certainly could not have worked out worse, could it? Slavery still exists today in Africa and the Middle East I am told, and here in America, Wage Slavery is alive and well to be sure.

          If I were the president of the Confederate States I would have freed the slaves, offered them all jobs with wages and then deducted their room and board and living expenses to zero it all out in the end. If you offered lines of credit above their wages to make them feel better about making a shitty wage you would have initiated today’s society 150 years ahead of schedule.

        Why is it that everybody now believes the Civil War was fought over slavery? All it took was a stroke of a pen to end that institution, though Lincoln was loath to sign the Emancipation Proclamation. He was not a fan of blacks. The Civil War was mainly economic, just another banker’s war. Not a single boy in blue gave his life to free the slaves. Like today, soldiers gave their lives in service of the wealthy in an effort to increase the wealth of the already rich. The north was getting rich off the south and benefited heavily from slavery without ever having to sully their hands with the dirty business. The south, quite understandably, wanted more of that wealth for themselves and thought they might be better off on their own. Perhaps they would have been.

      Ability to communicate effectively in the English language is the bedrock of tertiary education and Jim is correct to state that that is where governance must begin to repair inequality in America, but Jim neglects to mention access to education on equal footing to the pedestal white culture that occupies all legislatures as majority ethnocentric policy makers and writers of draft legislation.

      Jim’s lectures on historiography are invariably spot on every time as he is one writer that truly knows his history given that he has been around the block so many times already in comparison with his peers.

      Dr. King was assassinated outright by the right-wing fanaticism that the left is currently being accused of, but what is telling of late is that Robert Alan Zimmerman recently delved into the JFK assassination given that not even white American culture has come to grips with his assassination at the hands of the US Deep State that is primarily the crux of most colour revolutions on US soil to date.

      The facts of life today are such that governance has taken to propaganda to achieve sovereign goals of empire in a climate of distrust that no longer accepts the polemics de jour knowing that the CIA and lack of journalistic integrity coupled with a giant media empire of elite one per cent shareholders of monopoly hedge funds id not about truths of history over profit.

      USD is a failing fiat hegemonic state of fiscal & financial ineptitude brought about via the deregulation of the historic Glass-Steagall Act which was brought about to protect the American public from egregiously bad investment decisions by American investment bankers and their greedy shareholders that are never satisfied with the amounts of money they are making due to addictions issues and dopaminergic synapses in the Central Nervous Systems of Type “A” Personalities on Wall Street.

      Bottom line is that if one runs a culture on ‘kill or be killed’ it turns out that that is what will transpire when conflict over scarce resources becomes wholly pronounced and evident to the disenfranchised masses of serfs that have been indentured into servitude to banks as a way of life and existence mired in a pursuit of debt servitude instead of a pursuit of happiness which is what the white ethnocentric white elite currently have at a cost to everyone else that objects strenuously YoY.

      Lastly, I can disagree with Jim’s synthesis, but when it comes to the historiography I do indeed appreciate the knowledge base and learned ability whether it appears that way when I comment.

      Most writers will bullshit week by week because they really have nothing to offer, but Jim is NOT one of those writers as he always makes reasoned sound judgements from rational perspective unlike his peers on the right spectrum USA.

      Without an ability to rein in unparalleled greed we are doomed to be leveraged by it eventually. Physics indicates that for every action there is an opposite or equal reaction behaviourally from a standpoint of atomic behaviour.

      Lopsided behaviour in the area of Finance creates equal and opposite reactions via social structure. Finance cannot act in isolation of behaviour both socially & financially at the same time.

        RW, I am wondering whether the phenomenon you refer to is innate or programmed. Living 32 years offshore in a developing country I see Americans as spoiled rotten. Even the “poor” have hot water, drive cars and shop in supermarkets.

        The rest of the world has not been brought up to expect a life of comfort and a healthy pension upon retirement.

    Jim,

    Thanks for this excellent post. I only wish the world could see it because you’ve got the whole Negro situation right in all of its historic details: the voluntary segregation, the use of a neo-language (if I can call it that), the utter failure of a subculture to function and compete in the real world. I especially like your calling systemic racism a dodge. I would have said it’s a rationalization for failure but yours has more punch.

    Happy 4th of July to you. Stay alert, stay safe, stay alive.

      “Systemic racism” is in itself hollow. Blacks are very much a part of the system from mayors, police, police chiefs, legislators, school principles, teachers, the military and a two term President.

        They demanded to be called that. And when we did, they began to be outraged by it and demanded something else. The demand is everything you see – and Whites always being wrong.

        They really don’t like us, ok? And normal people don’t like being disliked. If you have any self esteem or commonsense, you avoid them whenever possible for the most part.

    Thank you Jim. One of the reasons I read your work is that you’re not afraid to tell it like it is. Being PC isn’t a requirement in your life. That’s refreshing. For far too many people though they are afraid to voice their opinions on subjects such as BLM or they will be branded a racist and face threats, be fired etc.

    And yeah, BLM is over the top in terms of what it purports to be and what it actually is. How all sorts of cities and towns, churches, synagogues, colleges, public schools etc can be paying homage to it, flying its flag and painting it on their streets is beyond me. I recognize that the average citizen isn’t all that bright and hasn’t learned critical thinking skills. That’s all I can figure.

    And most people like me have learned to keep our mouths shut on a local level so we don’t become a target. Some of those BLM supporters are clearly unbalanced like that so-called Harvard grad chick who threatened to kill anyone who dared to say “all lives matter”. In my state you either get with the program and support BLM or you are a racist, period.

    • tlauria July 3, 2020 at 12:36 pm #

      “I recognize that the average citizen isn’t all that bright ” except the CEOs of 269 companies, which have contributed to BLM, are not the average citizen.

      BLM is winning and it’s ‘kill or be killed’ as another commenter wrote. That’s the truth and it doesn’t bode well for ANYONE of ANY color.

      • Mountain gal July 3, 2020 at 3:50 pm #

        Yes, it’s very important right now to be virtue signaling ones wokenesss, whether it’s a person or company doing so. I’ve received so many insufferable emails from companies promising that they will do better. I’m noticing that every picture used now be it for a credit card, a service or whatever seems to portray a black person/couple/family.

        • Ricechex July 3, 2020 at 4:51 pm #

          Quite true Mountain Gal. Federal government is ON BOARD for BLM. When the riots started we started getting emails about racism, how to talk to children about racism, blah blah blah. That was just within the organization.

          The very high ranking Navy grand poo-bahs started sending out messages how racism in the military won’t be tolerated, every one is equal, the Navy supports black people and multi-culturism.

          On Thursday we had a video conference on “talking honestly about race and our feelings about the protests.” Except that it wasn’t honest at all. It was hosted by the white lady director, upper management white guy, and 3 lower level black people who did most of the talking. The focus of this grand conference was why “all lives matter” is racist.

          Several white attendees disclosed that they had done/thought racist things in the past because they did not know it was racist. I supposed this was scoring them some brownie points.

          Not ONE person brought up the violence. Of course who would do that….it would be job suicide.

    The black community has also been the target of massive cultural manipulation since about 1970

    Hollywood blaxploitation films began to give glamour to black pimps, drug dealers and gunmen

    And then gangsta music came in the 1980s, also glamourising these things

    Journalists who ended up dead like Mr Webb, showed how it was the USA gov and the CIA etc who were funnelling drugs into black neighbourhoods

    All of this was done by non-black outsiders manipulating black impressionability

    When black leaders themselves such as Farrakhan’s black Muslims, began to clean up black communities with courageous neighbourhood patrols, they were attacked and vilified and their funding destroyed, this campaign largely led by Jewish leaders, sad to say … who offered no substitute when the black communities were deprived of these patrols

    And now, “Black Lives Matter ‘Canceled’ After Criticising Israel”

    One anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian tweet and it was all over for BLM

        And glorification of Blacks to the detriment of Whites is also an offense – against Whites. And this has been done by the media for generations. So the question becomes, Who owns the media? And why are they using Blacks to savage Whites? Is what’s happening now just the next step in a long term program?

      No, not at all, stranger.

      WE know VERY well who sets the agenda and who has institutional power.

      Farrakhan is a genocidal Islamist Vatican CIA agent promoted by Twitter and YouTube and FaceBook and all the other Vatican CIA mafia controlled propaganda outlets. Same goes for the genocidal Palistanis. They are promoted on all them Vatican CIA mafia controlled internet propaganda outlets, and have been promoted nonstop on the MSM Vatican CIA controlled propaganda outlets for decades and decades. And the same goes for the Vatican CIA controlled college and university campuses. And whatever is true for the US is doubly true for Eurabia.

      We know exactly who is promoting the SATANIC AGENDA and why exactly they sponsor it. WE know it is a WAR ON THE JEWS and their HEBREW GOD. We know the address is ROME, and has always been ROME. We know their sponsored Nazi and Fascist and Commie and Jihadist subcontractors, etc. WE are wise to all the anti-human Satanic Vatican schemes, both current and historic. We see them clearly, and your nonsense is not going to cloud this knowledge and understanding, dearest stranger.

    WHO Admits It Was Never Told About COVID By China, Instead Found Out From U.S. Data

    https://saraacarter.com/who-admits-it-was-never-told-about-covid-by-china-instead-found-out-from-u-s-data/

    And remember when WHO was thanking China and spreading propaganda that the virus was not transmissible human to human…question everything.

    ==

    Despite earlier claims and countless defenses made by World Health Organization officials, an updated timeline by the international health body shows China never self-reported the COVID-19 outbreak that led to drastic economic and health consequences across the world.

    A quiet change to a timeline of COVID events in late June shows what many mainstream media outlets and government officials have denied for months: China didn’t inform the WHO about the outbreak. Instead, on December 31, “a translation of a Chinese media report about the outbreak is posted to ProMED, a U.S.-based open-access platform for early intelligence about infectious disease outbreaks,” according to a U.S. Naval Institute report.

    The first inklings of the impending pandemic, and the first time the WHO heard about it, came from this U.S. report — the WHO then sent officials to investigate its validity in China the next day.

    This runs contrary to a previous version of the timeline that falsely claimed on December 31: “Wuhan Municipal Health Commission, China, reported a cluster of cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A novel coronavirus was eventually identified.” This did not happen.

    Rather, the updated June 30 truthful version now says that on December 31 the WHO “picked up a media report on ProMED” about the mysterious cluster of pneumonia cases in Wuhan. The new timeline admits that ProMED is run by the International Society for Infectious Diseases — a U.S. based organization headquartered in Brookline, Massachusetts.

    The now-eerie Dec. 31 ProMED report says, “It is understood that the 1st patient with unexplained pneumonia that appeared in Wuhan this time came from Wuhan South China Seafood Market.”

    This newly admitted information disrupts the countless defenses given by Chinese officials and allies at the WHO.

    A June 4 article by China Daily said there “is no legal basis” for faulting China for the spread of the virus.

    “What we’ve done is strictly obey the international rules and fulfill our international obligations,” Huang Jin, a law professor specializing in international law at China University of Political Science and Law in Beijing falsely said in the propaganda article. “For example, we took the initiative to evaluate the pandemic situation and reported it in a timely fashion to the World Health Organization as well as other countries and regions, and we also accepted inspections from the WHO.”

    Now that it’s admitted China didn’t report in a timely fashion, but rather the U.S. did, the Chinese have dropped this false talking point, as reported by the Free Beacon.

    What actually happened is that Black America opted out and lost itself in a quandary of its own making with the assistance of their white dis-enablers, the well-intentioned “progressives.” This explains it perfectly.

    working in inner city schools for 32 years. I saw this play out over the decades. One of the patterns I noticed was Occupational programs that were successful such as food services and cosmetology were cut. For 2 reasons 1. there was more money to be had for failing students, then for successful students.

    2. It was degrading to expect black students to cook for or cut the hair of white people . This is how the poverty industry works . Keep Blacks poor , so we can make money helping them.

    • Jigplate July 3, 2020 at 12:27 pm #

      I too spent 30+ years working inner city high schools (NYC) in vocational education. At one time, NYC high schools were like universities. The Principals had their portraits painted and hung in the library. The faculty cafeteria had table cloths and custom china with the school logo. Students were pressed to meet standards. The gold standard for high school diplomas was the “Regents diploma” – It was recognized that not all students would be able to achieve this, so there was a lower level of achievement – the “Regents competency test” or RCT diploma. Eventually, the “equal outcome” crowd took over at the state as well as the city level, and it was decreed that everyone would get a regents diploma. The result? Of course the standard had to be dropped. The passing score for the math regents was dropped to 55. Many years ago, as a young teacher, an older colleague told me that when minorities ran everything there would be no more excuses. He was only half right. They are running everything ( in NYC) but the excuses just keep coming.

      • tlauria July 3, 2020 at 12:51 pm #

        I remember this well. I got a Regents diploma in NYC in 1970.
        Wonder when it was phased out.

        My mother and aunts who went to HS in the 30s & 40s told me they had to wear white gloves to school on special occasions.
        And those were PUBLIC high schools, not private or religious ones.

        Standards? What’s that? That’s why Jim’s right about language skills. It all begins and ends with communication skills.

        • Jigplate July 3, 2020 at 1:37 pm #

          The NY Regents diploma was never phased out, it was just dumbed down. After 2001 in NYC, the Gates and Annenberg Foundations among others funneled 100’s of millions of dollars to “re-envision” High schools. They closed most of the large comprehensive and vocational schools and replaced them with huge numbers of “Boutique” schools which co-occupy the original large school buildings- each with their own administrative staffs. Many of these “schools” wind up being phased out and replaced with the next iteration. My personal favorite was the “peace and diversity academy” in the Bronx, which was closed in 2016 for poor performance. I often wondered how they came up with the names of these boondoggles- I always pictured a group of woke teachers sitting around a bar, and after a few drinks coming up with these crazy ideas. The ostensible purpose of the last school I worked in was to train young people to be teachers. To my knowledge, they never turned out a single one. In the last few years of my career, I was expected to participate in a “credit accumulation” program. I was instructed to make myself available at the end of the term for “students” who couldn’t be bothered to show up for class for most of the term, to complete projects which would then qualify them for class credit. In many cases I had to give passing grades to kids who only showed up to class a handful of times between September and December. This policy was instituted by an incredibly cynical administration for no other reason than to improve their statistics. What none of our so-called educators will recognize is that you cannot replace the dysfunctional populations that attend these schools. Until you address the sickness in these cultures, nothing will change.

            And of course we must recognize that their average IQ is 85. Nothing will make them more than what Nature has made them. About 13% of the Blacks are smarter than the average White IQ of 100. Work with these if you want star students, but also remember, to first class work in University and the profession means an IQ of 130 or above. There are very, very few such Blacks.

          • SW July 3, 2020 at 1:56 pm #

            What you’re describing are schools being run by people who had authority, did not pretend to be the student’s best friend, communicated standards in a direct no nonsense manner and earned the respect of both the students and parents. Were they perfect? Were they all great teachers? No — but school was on solid ground not quick sand.

            I saw on the local news about a year ago a 13 YEAR OLD GIRL telling the school board off b/c her middle school had a dress code that did not allow her to wear micro-mini skirts. They were hurting her chance to express herself and the board backed down. I’m not making this up. And of course her enlightened best friend Mom was backing her up.

    There are two parts to ethnocentrism, the second original sin.

    First is the belief that one’s ethnicity is correct, that everyone else is wrong.

    The second, the deadly one is that since everyone else is wrong, I am going to convert them all.

    Be as I am, or I will kill you.

    One strange part of The Black movement is the belief that the ideals of 13% of the population should be the culture of the whole she bang. The Blacks have always acted as though they are the dominant ethnic group instead of a small minority that are guests of the common culture, which in this country is European. Two groups seem to delight in trying to take over, Blacks and Muslims. I believe that is why there is so much animosity towards these two groups. La Raza has a separateness wing in the Southwest but the vast majority of Latinos want to get a job and work their way up and enjoy the benefits of US society.

    In other words, Minorities are guests of the dominant culture. When they want to dominate and not assimilate, they become a non-digestible bit of gristle that needs to be regurgitated. I hope they find a place to go to when the civil war starts.

    • Sredni Vashtar July 3, 2020 at 1:55 pm #

      Numerical minorities have conquered before. Don’t be complacent about this. The Government is on their side. Unless and until large numbers of the army defect to our side, they will win. The police are also on their side since they just do what they are told or quit. Only the Sheriffs may be on our side in some cases. One Black sheriff is saying that he will deputize gun owners if he feels he can’t handle the mob. We need more of this, much more.

  16. SW July 3, 2020 at 11:01 am #

    My father was a first generation immigrant, both parents from Eastern Europe, I can remember when the controversy started about 30 years ago over teaching in Spanish in the schools and how the California liberals were outraged when a judge said English was the national language. He said then — my parents would never have considered not learning English and not having us kids speak English in school. They understood for their kids to have a chance they had to speak, write and read on a higher level than they would probably achieve.

    BLM thrives on implacable resentment (they have no wish to solve problems – it’s way too satisfying to posture and wail) and their knee – taking counterparts can become misty eyed over their own public show of courageous humility and repentance. The show must go on and will until perhaps they want to topple one statue too many or blast Mt. Rushmore. Then the comparison to the Tailban will be just too stark.

    I read an article about 25 years ago where a black professor said the downside to desegregation was the erosion of the black family. I don’t remember his name and I doubt his career thrived.

    A little off topic: has anybody else noticed that we know absolutely nothing about officer Derek Chauvin? Nothing about his life ,nothing about his politics, nothing about his relationships. Nothing about his history.No interviews with his family, no interviews with his ex-wife, no interviews with his teachers, no interviews with his friends. Not one investigation by our so-called news media about how he had at least a dozen complaints against his behavior as a police officer. It’s the case of the dog didn’t bark. And this dog is definitely not barking. Because if he was a Trump supporter or a conservative, the whole entire world would know it by now, because the news media would be shouting it from the rooftops.

      You’re right – there’s been a news blackout (no pun intended) on Derek but I did read where the other three officers had been released. I don’t know if this is true or not. It does seem strange the BLM lynch mob isn’t demanding a speedy public trial for him.

      • Sredni Vashtar July 3, 2020 at 2:00 pm #

      #DefundThe University

      I’ve seen a figure that for public universities in the US, taxpayer subsidies average $60,000 per bachelor’s degree (for private universities the figure is $13,000). Woe unto he who bites the hand that feeds.

      For K-12, the same principal applies. Public schools get a dollar amount from the state per student. Private schools of course are tuition based.

      It gives me no pleasure to say that I think a shooting war is almost inevitable but the first peaceful weapon at the disposal of decent people is to stop funding your own dissolution.

            What “McCarthy hearings” are you referring to?

            Be careful in answering as you may reveal that you don’t know what you are talking about.

            McCarthy’s Senate hearings were scrupulously fair and all sides recognized that.

            The famous HUAC hearings – which you probably thinking of – were of course House hearings and thus had nothing to do with Senator McCarthy. What is more, the HUAC was a committee established in the early 1930s by the Democrats as an Antifa-style “fascist” chasing exercises. Only post WW2 was it turned against the Communists.

            One of the big movers on the 1930s HUAC was a certain Congressman Dickstein of New York (?) who later rose to become a justice of the New York Supreme Court.

            Subsequent investigation has proven that from the time of his election to Congress in 1928 until his death in the 1950s, said Dickstein was an agent of the Soviet Union’s NKVD.

            So please tell us all more about that nasty Senator McCarthy.

          • Kim July 6, 2020 at 4:21 am #

            You say: ,i> “Here’s just a small sampling of McCarthy’s tactics which had everything to do with him:”

            What follows from you is simply a description of a typical Senate subcommittee hearing. What of it? Everyone complans that they are p[artisan. Because they invariably are! Duh!

            And the VOA staff were upset? Their morale was damaged? Of course it was! Because they were exposed for hiring long time Communists and spreading Communist propaganda in their broadcasts.

            The same goes for the Communist literature that was being provided through the US State Department libraries.

            There is nothing even slightly tyrannical or arbitrary or procedurally atypical about all of this.

            Communism was sworn to destroy the United states. But you believe the (communist-riddled) State Department should support their propganda efforts.

            Are you insane?

            And of course you complain about Cohn, because his efforts contributed to exposing the Rosenberg atom spies and sending them to their justified end.

            Or do you support espionage against the United States? Who knows? Maybe you do.

            Here’s just a small sampling of McCarthy’s tactics which had everything to do with him:

            “The subcommittee first investigated allegations of Communist influence in the Voice of America, at that time administered by the State Department’s United States Information Agency. Many VOA personnel were questioned in front of television cameras and a packed press gallery, with McCarthy lacing his questions with hostile innuendo and false accusations.] A few VOA employees alleged Communist influence on the content of broadcasts, but none of the charges were substantiated. Morale at VOA was badly damaged, and one of its engineers committed suicide during McCarthy’s investigation. Ed Kretzman, a policy advisor for the service, would later comment that it was VOA’s “darkest hour when Senator McCarthy and his chief hatchet man, Roy Cohn, almost succeeded in muffling it.”

            And this:

            “When the records of the closed executive sessions of the subcommittee under McCarthy’s chairmanship were made public in 2003–04, Senators Susan Collins and Carl Levin wrote the following in their preface to the documents:

            Senator McCarthy’s zeal to uncover subversion and espionage led to disturbing excesses. His browbeating tactics destroyed careers of people who were not involved in the infiltration of our government. His freewheeling style caused both the Senate and the Subcommittee to revise the rules governing future investigations, and prompted the courts to act to protect the Constitutional rights of witnesses at Congressional hearings. … These hearings are a part of our national past that we can neither afford to forget nor permit to re-occur.”

            McCarthy’s vicious attacks are well documented and his attempts at censorship speak for themselves:

            “The subcommittee turned to the overseas library program of the International Information Agency. Cohn toured Europe examining the card catalogs of the State Department libraries looking for works by authors he deemed inappropriate. McCarthy then recited the list of supposedly pro-communist authors before his subcommittee and the press. The State Department bowed to McCarthy and ordered its overseas librarians to remove from their shelves “material by any controversial persons, Communists, fellow travelers, etc.” Some libraries went as far as burning the newly-forbidden books. Shortly after this, in one of his public criticisms of McCarthy, President Eisenhower urged Americans: “Don’t join the book burners. … Don’t be afraid to go in your library and read every book.”[

          • Sredni Vashtar July 5, 2020 at 1:10 pm #

            He was wrong in that he underestimated the amount of Communist infiltration – and where its ultimate source lay. If there is ever to be an Ameircan 2.0, we must never again such irresponsible “freedom” to fester in Academia, Business, Politics, etc.

            He was a Hero for seeing that ahead of everyone.

    As I listen to the oration today from a President who may have a vocabulary of 400 words – I’ve only identified 4 adjectives – best, most, greatest and beautiful – I will reflect on JHK’s theory of how black people’s inferior language skills are holding them back from success.

    And then I can ponder the sophomoric , selective, and narrow focused reading of history that makes up the rest of this post.

    Hey Cathersis — I frequently acknowledge Mr. Trump’s awful language deficiencies. That does not obviate the problems of black children and their language handicaps — left uncorrected by the education establishment. — JHK Admin

    I can only guess that JHK likes the increased readership that he gets with these pandering comments that stem from his own prejudices. It’s getting ever harder to remember the penetrating analysis of his pre-pundit days.

      • K-Dog July 3, 2020 at 1:03 pm #

        Sophomoric , selective, and narrow focused is very clear. Have you not heard that brevity is the soul of wit?

        To begin with:

        That role could not be squared with the rules of Jim Crow apartheid, so something had to change.

        Really Sherlock? And what changed. Lipstick on a pig is what changed. A narrow sliver of American life was designated acceptable for black success and if a black man got rich through one of the approved black professions they could be white with the lights off. That is what happened.

        Education did not change. Schools in America for the most part suck and black schools suck the hardest by far. The path to true equality was cut off. The only professions black people under the new regime were allowed to become equal in were professions which by their nature are what Nassim Nicholas Taleb calls ‘scalable’. Professions were you do not get paid by the hour.

        It seems paradoxical because the earning potential of a non-scalable profession like a Hollywood recording artist or comedian is unlimited but the key point is people in non-scalable professions are always outliers and exceptions to the rule.

        America did not want to change and bring up the living standard of an entire class of people. That would be serious and expensive change. Instead a small number of the oppressed class were allowed to become part of the elite class keeping America societie’s basic structure the same. Paradoxically the more things changed the more the game was kept the same.

        And now we have hell to pay because equal opportunity can’t mean shit in a land where opportunity left the building along with Elvis years ago. Education and a $10 dollar bill will get you as cup of coffee in about ten years. Starbucks will have bars on the windows.

        In America Rich Lives Matter. Only rich lives matter and the rest of you can just die of COVID for all the elite care. The most elite of them have already been vaccinated. Trump in particular.

        • SW July 3, 2020 at 6:13 pm #

          But how many people regardless of race are in non-scalable professions? Very few. The majority of blacks obviously lived in the South after the Civil War and the south had been shattered and there was no money for anything including schools. I agree the blacks had to deal with Jim Crow laws and I remember water fountains, bathrooms, etc. labeled as white only growing up and that was wrong and thankfully, it’s been corrected.

          I’m not a teacher but I know this beyond a doubt — if you want your child to get a good education, it starts at home. Turn off the TV, meet the teacher, make sure the homework is done and don’t expect a school to make up for deficiencies.

          What concerns me about BLM is the toxic intersection of resentment and entitlement. No good can come of that, particularly to them. The only people who can reverse the destructive effects of ghetto culture are them and I hope they do.

          “In America Rich Lives Matter” — you are correct. This is the history of the human race and I have no suggestions how that is to be righted. Human beings have always taken the knee to power, position and cold hard cash. This didn’t start here and won’t end here either.

      You are cruel. His vocabulary has at least 500 words. But I like this. It blows the JHK supposition that inadequate language skills are responsible for not being successful a mile high.

      Sophomoric , selective, and narrow focused I agree.

        When I was a kid in grad school, pre med, YEARS ago, I published a study showing that people who extensively use superlatives, whether describing self, objects, events or others, have very low levels of ego development. (i.e. ego immaturity).

          Americans tend towards superlatives and the modern English towards self depreciation, dry wit, and understatement. Both can be done well or badly.

        Mountain Gal, we are probably in the same state. While I have not seen any yard sales, BLM signs and the like are prolific around here. They are displayed in windows, yards, chalk on sidewalk, even one on it’s own stand at the street corner.

        People are taking time to make these signs. Most are handwritten, painted, stenciled, markers, on poster board. Some signs convey messages about police, white washing is bad, and other odd messages that appear to be rantings of the insane mind as they are incoherent, to me, anyway.

        These signs complement the already prolific “No human is illegal” and “We are glad you are our neighbor” signs.

    There is also an element of hypocrisy within the black community that is never talked about by BLM or anybody else. Shadism or colorism. Black people being racist about other black people who are too dark or too light. And the 1970’s’ black is beautifu’l thinking seems to have totally disappeared. Take a look at top role models like Beyonce who has long, blonde hair, yet Kim Kardasian gets lambasted for cultural appropriation when styling her hair in braids. World wide creams are sold that supposedly ‘lighten’ skin. People in asian countries undergo surgury to make their eyes look more ‘western’, etc. All this bullshit talk about white privilege and systemic racism yet the amount of money spent in the black community on hair straightening products and weaves is in the millions. Michelle Obama applies those horrible chemicals to straighten her hair. White people get blamed for every thing wrong in the world, but non whites seems to want to emulate the way whites look. Don’t blame advertising because this is the year 2020 and people can make up their own minds about who they want to be. Black america also doesn’t like to examine why many of the most successful black people in the mid century had roots in the West Indies like Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, Colin Powell, etc. They were raised with pride, not self loathing.

    • Sredni Vashtar July 3, 2020 at 2:12 pm #

      Belafonte has or had a very deep hatred of White people. Don’t know about Poitier. Powell is a fake Republican who votes Democrat or his race.

      Black pride is real. The early African Safari leaders noted how well the Blacks thought of themselves. Psychological testing has found the same thing. Their pride is twisted into hatred when around Whites, being outshone in so many ways.

      When the White inferiority complex (assiduously developed by the Churches, Academia, popular culture, etc) meets twisted Black Pride, the results are both comical, tragic, and horrific. Google the Knoxville Massacre.

      • snagglepuss July 3, 2020 at 2:24 pm #

        Go to a city like Houston or any other oil and gas city and you will find black people who are well educated and likely from Nigeria. Petroleum engineers, etc. You can spot them without asking because they don’t dress in the ‘gangsta’ style. They are very stylish and favor french cut shirts, etc. If you ask them they will tell you they appalled at the way american black youth dress, talk, and behave. We have many such professionals in my city and they all say this.

        As for Belafonte, remember he performed in Cuba in his early career and saw real racism. Probably in other places as well.

        • Sredni Vashtar July 3, 2020 at 3:45 pm #

          Che was a monster, yet beloved by the Left. I’ve met some nice Nigerians. They hate American Blacks so much that they should get fitted for their Klan robes.

          Educated Nigerians try to get out of Nigeria. Ditto other Africans out of Africa. Or Black Americans away from other Blacks. Telling, is it not? Study reversion to the mean in IQ. Their children will be part of the problem, falling quite naturally into the toxic Black American culture for the most part.

    15 years ago I worked in the HR department at a hotel in Beverly Hills. There was a black admin assistant in the Sales department who wanted to be promoted to a new Sales Mgr opening. This woman was reasonably bright but she had attrocious grammar, terrible posture and she did not know how to dress. The GM, HR Director and Sales Director did not grant her an interview. She filed a racial discrimination claim, which was ironic considering half of the existing Sales Managers were black. She was given a $30,000 settlement. She did not have a realistic assessment of herself. Any lower class white person can testify to the fact that you don’t get very far in this world if you talk like a hillbilly, are covered in tattoos and act like you just fell off the turnip truck. The difference is that white people cannot play the race card.

Monkeys are now taking the jobs of hard working brown skinned, sub minimum wage workers in the various countries that export coconuts. What were once productive human beings are quickly becoming obsolete farm equipment.

    We need a regulatory agency to protect the rights of the monkeys. We need assurance that the monkeys receive a living wage, are free ranging, and are provided proper and respectful working conditions. The monkeys need respect for their culture, they need sanctions placed on their (probably) white owners…they need an Anthem to rally the spirit! Dignity!

            Mofo,
            All kidding aside, age brings wisdom. When young, I saw everything in black and white. With age comes the shades of grey. You will suggest that one can get wisdom from a book or mentor…one cannot. You can read it or hear it, you can, at a level understand it, but age brings a completely different perspective, and with it a truth.

            You will suggest that, at my age, I will die soon, and therefor am cynical. Cynicism is not necessarily pejorative. 74 years of education, reading, learning, observing…focused to a point.

            I could say I am amused at your optimism…but rather I would suggest that I understand it, and it belies your youth.

          • akmofo July 4, 2020 at 12:37 pm #

            Cynical about what?! You were given the gift of life to see what awesome beauty God has created. Yes, there are evil ignorant men, but it is your duty to be an ambassador for God, and it’s your challenge in life to create light out of darkness, just as your creator God has. You were created in his image! You enjoy the breath of God that gave you life!

    I grew up in a household with newspapers stacked everywhere throughout home because nobody ever tied up the newspapers on a regular basis and threw them out until them became unbearably messy via a clutter household.

    Books, multiple newspapers per day piling up at the mailbox, and incentive to read makes literacy easy whereas if reading material is not provided in abundance one is left with impoverishment and little language acquisition skills to enable further learning as formative years turn to less formative years in dead ended occupations or vocations.

    Clearly an excellent treatise on the fraud of BLM; for confirmation, all one has to do is read their website blacklivesmatter.com, in the ‘about’ section. They have toned it down since the riots/burnings began, but it still articulates the following: anti-America, anti-nuclear family, anti-business, pro-trans, anti-capitalism, anti-property rights, pro-mob mentality. End of story. Also the founders of BLM are on tape claiming marxist training. (from whom?)

    The other issue is what happens now/next. Medically, we in for the SHTF as COVID progresses into a fall that will resemble 1918 with massive morbidity and mortality. THEN EITHER: 1-trump wins and we have escalation of leftist violence, possibly with a fascist reactive crackdown, i.e. marshal law. 2-biden wins and, in addition to idiocracy, we have an onslaught of anti-liberty so called ‘laws’ (e.g. medical tyranny, loss of 1st and 2nd A rights, etc). So called conservatives and trumpsters will fall out of their delusional dream of a working class billionaire leader and realize he was just another globalist elitist (look at his cabinet). This will lead to separatists movements of less tyrannical states (i.e. successions) and civil war 2.
    3-we have no election (for whatever reason); the US has an acute psychotic break with chaos everywhere.

    SITREP; liberals are buying guns at record rates; leftist mobs are carrying guns and other lethal weapons far far more often than in the past; 40% of voters per latest Rasmussen poll (fairly decent) expect civil war within 5 years (5 yrs=linear reality normalcy delusion); rural and suburban folks are buying more ammo (already heavily armed); the current US political/economic situation is very similar to that of Yugoslavia as it deteriorated post USSR, and the US in the late 1850’s; the national debt is explosive and can’t and will never be paid back; US economy was circling the drain in Sept/Oct (e.g. massive fed stim nightly) indicates no U recovery possible.

      Addition to SITREP:

      The average age of empires is 250 years per most analyses. The America of 1776 will be 250 years old in 2026.

      What is a “case”? I suspect massive fraud about all aspect of Covid19.

      Trump needs to declare martial law and become our last president and first Emperor – but he lacks the stones to do so. Thus war it is.

      Most regimes don’t last more than two hundred years or so. We’re right on schedule. Rome’s republic lasted longer as did their Empire. They were more than we are. Sad, but true.

      The fall of America isn’t isolated, but it marks the end of the entire West. The Slavs might survive but they are beset by many of the same problems. The White Race itself is in peril. And they’re will be no renaissance of the West without the White Race, be it the Western branch or the Eastern.

      One regime or dynasty falls and another rises, both in Ancient Egypt or China. But the toll sounded for Old Egypt – not enough real Egyptians left. Race is the biological foundation of any Civilization. There are other factors. Cult is upstream of culture after all. But it does not negate race. Christians don’t get that and their culture is not long for this world. The Chinese do get this and they thrive. But they are playing with fire by admitting Black Africans in their southern most province.

          ES,
          I do not necessarily agree with the premise.

          “No device can generate energy in excess of the total energy put into constructing it”.”

          Sooo, as the device becomes cheaper with less energy intensive manufacture, it reaches to, or beyond parity…or singularity, if you prefer. The more complex machine less so.

          Consider a sharpened stone.

          The “law” might have some application in complex devices, but I do not see it as an absolute. A parlor trick.

He also sold the apartment condo I gifted him and put everything in Canadian mint when gold was at $1300 Canadian. Now a just couple or more years later, gold is that $2400 Canadian, and in a few more years it will be $10,000 Canadian, making him a multi multimillionaire.

But more than that, he had balls to put his understanding and conviction on the line. He took a risk, and now he can retire at 30 something anywhere in the world.

    Is it possible that Trump could pull off in 2020 what Nixon did in 1972? That time was certainly different than now, with huge protests against the Vietnam war, but racial tensions were also rampant and there was much violence and chaos as in the LA riots of ’65. Then came the Chicago riots in ’68. Then in May of 1970 four students were shot dead at Kent State in Ohio, followed by the shooting of blacks at Jackson State in Mississippi a week or so later.

    Now, also in 1970, we had the Hard Hat riot in NYC where construction workers beat the hell out of protesters. Of course nothing like this has happened now, with mostly the police themselves taking the beat down, shamefully enough. David Kuhn has a book out about that riot and its political ramifications. It’s titled just that, ‘The Hard Hat Riot’.

    Back to my opening question. As we all know, Nixon won by a Landslide in 1972, vowing that law and order would prevail. I don’t believe that today’s turmoil matches that of those days, although it’s been quite disturbing and surprising. But in the 60’s and 70’s they didn’t want to totally cancel the culture and erase history, so in that way today’s protests appear much more dangerous.

    The Covid virus complicates the scenario. Without it, and after all the rioting, Trump could bury Biden and make him the McGovern of 2020. Or, has Trump already buried himself?

    It has been a busy week in Central Virginia. The City of Richmond mayor had a virtual emergency city council meeting Wednesday morning. He removed the Stonewall Jackson statue off Monument Avenue that afternoon. The next day they took down another one. The Robert E. Lee statue removal is tied up in litigation. It has suffered badly from what a 96-year-old resident of the area calls the “graffiti goons”. Makes one wonder what the Civil War buffs will come look at in the future. As I recall , the last folks that destroyed their history were the Taliban.
    As I predicted the Mob after that appeasement, went to the Courthouse for further relief since the eviction process was shall we say, unpaused. Not getting that relief, they started lobbing bricks into the glass windows After a few arrests, and a liberal crowd dosing of pepper spray, the crowd left to lick their wounds. Rental property is generally secured by a mortgage, and has fixed expenses such as property taxes. Those pesky facts seem to be insignificant in the face of the free rent crowd. After all, if we dream it; it can come true.
    I suggest anyone crazy enough to venture into Richmond, think again. It will be a long time before I go there. The city government thinks that appeasing the Mob is the way to personal safety and safeguarding property. After all, Mayor Stoney said so. Wonder how the city coffers will do in the future after running off all the tourists and the folks like me who don’t care for rioting.

          The history of the Civil War is complex and living in Richmond gave me a real respect for the Southern way of life. Had I not moved to Europe my wife and I would be there now.

    ‘The Hardhat Riot: Nixon, New York City, and the Dawn of the White Working-Class Revolution’

    “Perhaps the best book ever on how Democrats lost the white working class.”
    –James Carville

    ‘In May 1970, four days after Kent State, construction workers chased students through downtown Manhattan, beating scores of protesters bloody. As hardhats clashed with hippies, it soon became clear that something larger was underway–Democrats were at war with themselves. In The Hardhat Riot, David Paul Kuhn tells the fateful story of when the white working class first turned against liberalism, when Richard Nixon seized the breach, and America was forever changed. It was unthinkable one generation before: FDR’s “forgotten man” siding with the party of Big Business and, ultimately, paving the way for presidencies from Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump.

    This is the story of the schism that tore liberalism apart. In the shadow of the half-built Twin Towers, on the same day the Knicks rallied against the odds and won their first championship, we experience the tumult of Nixon’s America and John Lindsay’s New York City, as festering division explodes into violence and Nixon’s advisors realize that the Democratic coalition has collapsed, that this is their chance, because “these, quite candidly, are our people now.”

    In this riveting story–rooted in meticulous research, including thousands of pages of never-before-seen records–we go back to a harrowing day that explains the politics of today. We experience an emerging class conflict between two newly polarized Americas, and how it all boiled over on one brutal day, when the Democratic Party’s future was bludgeoned by its past.’

    After all, US entered WWII as a race-war against yellow people. US propaganda was about murdering all those ‘Japs’ and the Pacific War ended with dropping two big ones on those ‘Jap’ civilians. Americans hated Nazis but mainly because Germany was allied with ‘Japs’. Much of US propaganda was as extreme as Nazi propaganda. As John Dower detailed in his book about the war in Pacific, eliminationist rhetoric was common(on both sides).

    Also, if US were truly sincere back then about racial justice, why did it support Zionist plans to erase Palestine? Indeed, why is there no concern for Palestinian rights today if indeed US in invested in fairness and justice for all? And why did the US enter new wars where the US came to decimate millions of Asians and then later Arabs? And Americans sure didn’t care much about Madeleine Albright saying it is ‘worth it’ to kill 500,000 Iraqi children.

    The real pressure to bring about change in the US had to do with Soviet Union as the new rival. Communist propaganda around the world promised equal justice against imperialism and ‘racism’ represented by US and Western Europe. As many Third World nations bitter with memory of white rule were tempted by communism, the US felt compelled to change America’s image.

    There were other reasons as well. Black success in pop music and sports made them more popular among whites, and this really changed with rise of soul and rock n roll. Elvis, initially condemned as ‘white ni**er’, became a hero to whites. And black athletes were seen as representative of America in Olympics. So, black racial superiority in athletics changed perceptions.
    Also, blacks have big booming voices, so MLK’s oratory had an effect that was missing in other minorities. American Indians suffered ‘genocide’ and rotted away in reservations but no one much cared about them because Indians weren’t good at sports, lacked rhythm, and didn’t have that bellowing Negro voice. Such visceral things matter in public consciousness as most people are emotional than rational. It’s like whites came to regard Jews more highly than Arabs because Jews gained prominence as geniuses, wits, doctors, and artists whereas Arabs seemed like a bunch of low-IQ mediocrities. Ideologically, American values said all people are equally worthy, but in terms of idolatry, blacks mattered more than American Indians and Jews mattered more than Arabs.

    Also, there was the general affluence that made white people more idealistic and generous in spirit in the post-war world. They never had it so good, and they thought all Americans, blacks too, should be given more of a fair shake.

    And there was also the Jewish Power Factor. As Jews were rising in power, they exploited ‘white guilt’ about blacks as potent weapon to weaken white pride and moral authority. Jews hoped that ‘white guilt’ would make whites more defensive, thus more willing to cave to the new order where Jewish Power would be prominent.

            It’s interesting that in the Hebrew TaNaKh it is written the God breathed life into Adam (man). The Hebrew word used is RU’AH and literally translates as WIND. The Hebrew language avoids the abstract and the world is described as something that can be observed with the senses. In the case of electricity, it was not possible to describe it in ancient Hebrew, but what was possible to describe was the effect of electric charges which is RU’AH or WIND.

      ==

      Because the genocide of Jews and the thieving Jihadi appropriation of Jewish lands is not a right. “Palestine” is the Jewish homeland as recognized by Muhmud and the Koran by Christ and Christian scriptures by the Hebrew Bible by the internationally agreed upon and mandated San Remo Accords and the League of Nations antecedent to the United Nations.

    BLM, Antifa, disaffected youths in general (White or Black) act from from a century-old iteration of bankrupt Communism. Nihilism masquerading as equality, fairness, compassion.

    Ask a young college student (as I have), listen, daily, to current or recent university students in the Arts (as I do, as an artist myself who has a desire and need to know what’s going on) or a protester on the street what they believe in, what they revere or enjoy, and not even in a metaphysical sense, but just in their day-to-day lives. You’ll either get blank stares, or the mindless sloganeering claptrap indistinguishable one from another that they pieced together from their Colonial Studies courses.

    I got a liberal arts degree in the 80s. It wasn’t like this. Identity politics was just a whisper then. You could argue with your prof(s) about politics and not fear getting a poor mark out of revenge. Other students were filled with common sense, and were rightly obsessed with all the usual things: getting laid, studying hard, having a good time, and putting university life behind them once they got their degree.

    Now?

    No awe or reverence for Art, the scientific method, common law, rule of law, free speech, proportion and beauty in architecture, sexual depth in a committed relationship, any spiritual discipline (pseudo-religious talky pieties of the ‘disenfranchised’ don’t count), stimulating hobbies, wider range of reading and intellectual meditation on what’s been read, a sense of real service to others (whether through capitalist avenues or as a volunteer), pride in the heritage of their forebears, community pride (not community nuisance-agitation).

    James Lindsay was on Joe Rogan yesterday detailing the current insanity, and though he’s an atheist, he made a crucial distinction that Christian theology (whatever the case in practise) has as a precept a way to look up (reverence, awe, forgiveness, true repentance, joyful celebration), whereas the current Utopians can only look down (criticize, insistence on everything being permanent racism and power dynamics). He’s right, of course. It’s a joyless and utterly destructive congregation.

    “The BLM hustle has turned into a violent insurrection supported by a body of bad ideas geared to driving the nation insane.”
    .
    There are always groups within a society that would love to drive everyone else insane in the advance of an agenda. But you can’t be driven insane (outside of receiving full-on torture) without your own participation. The problem in today’s world is that the intended victims of insanity are also being active participants in their own crazification.
    .
    “The main grievance now is that Black Americans are still denied full participation due to ‘systemic racism.’ That’s a dodge. What actually happened is that Black America opted out and lost itself in a quandary of its own making…”
    .
    This is the most accurate statement about race relations in America that was ever written to date, at least in accurately describing about 95% of the problem.
    .
    …”the Public Accommodations Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968. So, the outcome to all that federal legislation of the 1960s turned out not to be the clear-cut victory…”
    .
    You can’t legislate racism out of a person’s heart. Millions of Americans in the ‘60s (and ever since then) were/are determined to maintain their perceived superiority over other humans regardless of what anyone ruled or did. This seems to be a default character flaw in most humans – the need to dehumanize others. Attempts to (legally) remove racism was/is perceived as a personal attack on people who are determined to be racist. Their racism is a fundamental part of their personality structure that they will defend at all costs.
    .
    “The solution was multiculturalism and diversity. These credos declared that a society didn’t require a common culture, a consensus about behaviors, manners, and values.”
    .
    This notion guarantees the idea of Separate and Unequal. Without a true and level playing field, you will have potholes and a slanting table without common grounded-ness and uneven ourtcomes among all the players.
    .
    “The economic collapse underway is intensifying these quandaries, paradoxes, and predicaments because from now on life is going to get much more difficult for everybody in the USA.”
    .
    Not everybody. Not for those who have been salivating for days like this for generations. Right now, it’s Party City.

    I can honestly say that most of us on the real Right have always capitalized both. This is significant since they say since we favor capitalizing White, this is one of their reasons for not doing it – implying that we don’t capitalize Black.

    An add on to something I proposed last time.

    If the Covid spreads extremely fast and drives areas into herd immunity quickly, it would explain some of the strange spreading it is doing now.

    Asymptomatic spread is the key. Testing is the limitation. Think of the spread as a ripple in water. As is spreads, the area, the infected, grows as a square function. Unmitigated, the rises in cases show this rapid rise. However, if the ability to catch the new cases with testing is limited, it will always show fewer numbers than the published numbers. CDC stated that the actual number of cases could be 10 x the tested numbers. Could be that the asymptomatic cases in the NE and Midwest drove them into herd levels and we never even saw the true effect because of testing elimination. As the number of test cases has increased, the new areas sees a larger percentage of positives because the virus is faster than the testing.

    These areas are growing because mitigation was decreased and very irresponsible, and stupid young people decided to ignore the very simple precautions. Could be the virus is infecting just about everyone now and herd immunity will set up quickly in the new areas. When the surges decline, we may be immune as the earlier areas became.

    We shall see.

    • Robert White July 3, 2020 at 9:13 pm #

      Herd Immunity is not applicable for bioweapons like SARS-2-nCoV-19 as they are engineered to mutate into structurally different pathogens as they replicate throughout populations. In a decade from now we will still be fighting the mutations that are manifesting now.

      Turning the whole world into a bioweapons lab accident or intentional industrial assault on the world populations is not something that morphs into so-called ‘herd immunity’ when it comes to Gain-of-Function Pandemic Pathogens like SARS-2-nCoV-19.

      US Intel has already warned of insurgency via intentional spreading of COVID-19 via opposition groups that operate outside of traditional democratic opposition punditry and protest as evidenced here on CFN.

      This man made bioweapon is not going away via herd immunity I assure you.

    ” Really, America, if you want to begin somewhere, require the teaching of language skills in the schools. If you continue to deny it, you are condemning people to failure.”
    There is already a process for teaching academic English to foreign students and students whose parents aren’t native English speakers. The student gets tested when registering at the school, if the student’s English isn’t good the student gets special help. If we expand the system to test ALL students and give ALL students equal access to the English programs we will have made a good start. I never understood why we don’t give the same help to the children of citizens that we give to children of non-citizens. What is more mystifying is why no one seems to care. I think the Ebonics thing may have been an attempt to get African-American students access to the English Language Learner program. You don’t need to do that, just test them all and help those that need it.

    • Kim July 3, 2020 at 10:58 pm #

      “I think the Ebonics thing may have been an attempt to get African-American students access to the English Language Learner program. You don’t need to do that, just test them all and help those that need it.”

      The deathless naivete.

      They don’t want to “talk white”. Their language use is a choice. For heave’s sake, they are already immersed in the national language from birth. How could they fail to learn to spek like any other American? It is their choice not to mainstream themselves. It is an emotional choice.

      Consider for a moment, why would a child who is born in the United States and attends mainstream schools and is constantly exposed to mainstream movies, tv, signboards, what-have-you, fail to learn the language? It is something completely natural and basically unavoidable for normal children.

      There are two possible and possible related answers:

      1) They don’t want to learn it.

      2) The language is too complex for them.

      I incline to the former because…well… I won’t go into it except to point out that I knew a genuine functional retard once who was fluent in English, Cantonese and Putonghua.

      The language-learning capacties of children are simply enormous.

      As to language teaching in schools and other academic environments, this kind of program is usually targeted at helping non-native-English speaking students be successful in completing academic tasks such as speaking and listening in classes (this often involves domain-specific language use) and carrying out usually written assignments (essays, theses, reports, specifications, business plans, etc, depending on the domain or subject requirements) and teaches also how to read faster or better or, for example, how to read for specific information.

      This kind of instruction is very welcome to the new students from Iran or Korea. In contrast, if he attends the class, the student from the hood will be found with his kicks up on the desk, alternately scowling or giggling or saying “m’f*cker as he studies Tik-Tok on his “smart” phone.

      He doesn’t care. He will never care. The task you outline is hopeless and flies in the face of all experience.

      And – finally- it abslolutely has nothing to do witth throwing more resources at him.

    So we got an end to Jim Crow but we never asked why it was there in the first place. What purposes did it serve? Some may have been irrational or baleful. And some may have been perfectly rational.

    Was it possible that whites were being perfectly rational in their desire to be able to live apart from blacks?

    Well, we’ve now had 60 years of the experiment, carried out with the greatest will in the world. What changes has proximity to blacks brought to the lives of whites (someone else can speak for the blacks)?

    Well, for whites, formerly white schools are now destroyed as institutions of learning. Academic, intellectual and behavioral standards of every kind have had to be not just lowered but entirely abandoned in order to accomodate blacks. And still blacks at in the aggregate apparently can neither learn nor contribute to the non-complaining part of the intellectual life of the nation.

    National politics have been poisoned by the ideologies of gimmedatism and an unappeasable kill-the-farmer-kill-the-Boer revenge mentality.

    These sulfur-stinking attitudes are now rewarded, so you can be sure that they will grow even stronger and more destructive. They will not go away.

    And – perhaps the greatest of all the media cover-ups – whites are now massively the victims of a system of black criminality that many in politics and the media suggest should go unpunished.

    Consider: 90% of inter-racial crime in the USA is black-on-white.

    – In 2018 there were 547,598 incidents of black-on white violent crime.

    – In contrast, in that same year there were just 59,778 violent white-on-black attacks

    These are extraordinary figures alone but become almost incredible when we observe that blacks are also just 13% of the population!

    So lets pause just a moment and wonder – because how can it hurt to think for just a moment – could the endless and apparently unsolvable problems of black criminality, violence, social failure and dysfunction have been the reason why whites wished to have the right to disassociate themselves from blacks?

    Did the people of the South know something about blacks that people of the North did not?

    Perhaps it was not unreasonable that they wished to separate themselves from the blacks back then?

    Perhaps it is not unreasonable now?

    Akmofo,

    Did you say above that the Hebrew God is for the Hebrews? In that case, who is the real God or do all other people not have one?

    • akmofo July 3, 2020 at 11:51 pm #

      Other people have false gods or deities. Romanism and Mohammedism try to splint their cultural Satanism onto Judaism and thus claim a “Universal God” and a Replacement Theology for Judaism, but really it is Satanism and idol worship. There is only one God and he is the Hebrew God. The way to God is not through Mohammed or Cesar Christ but through the Hebrew Scriptures. To be one with the Hebrew God you must be one with the Hebrew Scriptures and to be one with Hebrew Scripture you must be Hebrew. It’s that simple.

      • akmofo July 4, 2020 at 12:42 am #

        It depends what you want to be. You weren’t English, but now you are. You weren’t American, but now you are. You didn’t worship in Latin, but now you do. Somehow all of that is OK with you, but to learn Hebrew is not, so what does it say about you and your respect for God?

        Learn Hebrew. It’s easier than the degenerate languages you speak today.

        • sophia July 4, 2020 at 10:54 am #

          But what would be the point. The creator of the universe only has interest in one tribe. The rest of us live in an indifferent universe.
          Do you believe that your god expects Jews to rule over gentiles?

        • akmofo July 4, 2020 at 11:50 am #

          The point is that YOU ARE NOT THE OTHER. You are a decedent of Noah just as I am. We all spoke the same Hebrew language (and Isaac Mozeson proves it: http://www.edenics.org/). His God is your God, as he is my God. Only you made yourself a stranger to him a stranger to his language a stranger to his culture a stranger to his people a stranger to your people a stranger to his understanding of living and being, and we have not.

          There’s only one place where we as the direct decedents of Abraham Isaac and Jacob be sovereign and that’s the land God allocated to Abraham Isaac and Jacob.

          What about the animal men? In other words, where did Cain get his wife? Maybe we’re those ones!

          Adam and Eve were a special creation and blessed with a direct relationship with God. The rest of humanity may have been evolutes, or results of the general, earlier creation. Geneisis has two creation stories.

    “Now I am going to tell you why BLM is a hustle…” ~ JHK

    This whole system is a ‘hustle/racket’ of sorts, a smashup, clusterfuck etc.. Call it what you will.

    So even if BLM was a hustle, it’s a hustle within a hustle within a smashup…

    It’s Coercion/Ideological Indoctrination Central and many appear to have swallowed much of it like cool aid while flipping it back at their 5-cent lemonade stands wearing ‘badges’ or ‘tatoos’ that say things like ‘I’m a card-carrying Democrat’.

    “The BLM hustle has turned into a violent insurrection supported by a body of bad ideas geared to driving the nation insane.” ~ JHK

    The nation-state seems a ‘bad idea’ so let it go ‘insane’. That appears part of the point from some avenues.

    “The action on-the-ground is like the Jacobin phase of the French Revolution seasoned with the murderous derangement of Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution.” ~ JHK

    There are bound to be similarities and differences to human activities across different times, locales and circumstances.
    If the sociogeopolitical dynamic is as you’ve charitably painted over time here at your lemonade stand, it’s unsurprising.

    What’s this ‘Parler’ by the way and does it offer free Cognac?
    (I made my first ever home made vodka last week by the way.)

    “As biologist Bret Weinstein said in his podcast last week with linguistics prof John McWhorter: ‘If you attempt a Maoist takeover of the US, you’ll get a civil war.’ ”

    Collapse/Decline, along with such things as civil war, often seem kind of baked into civilizations from their inception.

    “What we’re seeing in the looting and burning, the ‘canceling’ of careers and lives, the toppling of statues and the attempt to rewrite history, the pathetic obeisance of political leaders to raging mobs, and the lives lost in senseless acts of violence is the unfinished business of the civil rights movement.” ~ JHK

    Awesome…
    The solar system has ‘senselessly’ rattled the earth with all manner of ‘senseless’ violence.
    And from that came us. ^u^

    Just don’t forget the embedded violence of the State and how that influences the dynamics that unfold ay?

    BTW, slavery never really went away. Much of it just got rebranded and repackaged as ‘a job/career’ working for/getting pimped by ‘The boss’ and ‘The Governpimp’.

    “It amounted, for some, in declining that invitation to participate fully in American life. ‘No thanks. We’ll go our own way.’ That sentiment has prevailed ever since.” ~ JHK

    “The philosophy is basically what we call intercommunalism– we’re not nationalists, we don’t believe in nationalism. Nationalism or nationhood is… akin to superiority, is akin to racism…” ~ Bobby Seale

    “To empower the powerless and create ‘a million villages’ to replace nation-states is the only safe future for the preservation of the biosphere. Let interdependence and personal responsibility be our aims.” ~ Bill Mollison, ‘Permaculture: A Designer’s Manual, second ed.’

    “Gustav Landauer (1870-1919): ‘The state is a condition, a certain relationship between beings, a mode of behaviour; we destroy it by contracting other relationships, by behaving differently.’

    The implication of Sarvodaya for the subject of this book is brought out by the statement of Jayaprakash Narayan: ‘In a Sarvodaya world society the present nation states have no place.’ ” ~ Geoffrey Ostergaard, ‘Resisting The Nation State’

    “You see, the worst thing about permaculture is that it’s extremely successful, but it has no center, and no hierarchy.

    Alan: So that’s worst from whose perspective?

    Bill: Anybody that wants to extinguish it. It’s something with a million heads. It’s a way of thinking which is already loose, and you can’t put a way of thinking back in the box.

    Alan: Is it an anarchist movement?

    Bill: …You won’t get cooperation out of a hierarchical system. You get enforced directions from the top, and nothing I know of can run like that. I think the world would function extremely well with millions of little cooperative groups, all in relation to each other.” ~ Bill Mollison

    “Really, America, if you want to begin somewhere, require the teaching of language skills in the schools. If you continue to deny it, you are condemning people to failure.” ~ JHK

    “The modern education system was designed to teach future factory workers to be ‘punctual, docile, and sober’…

    Factory owners required a docile, agreeable workers who would show up on time and do what their managers told them. Sitting in a classroom all day with a teacher was good training for that. Early industrialists were instrumental, then, in creating and promoting universal education.” ~ Allison Schrager

    “…can we clear the phantoms out of our heads and play it straight for a change?” ~ JHK

    Sure, and how about you?

      “This whole system is a ‘hustle/racket’ of sorts, a smashup, clusterfuck etc.. Call it what you will.” ” — zazelle

      Here we have the fallacy of false equivalence and ‘whataboutism’.

      “The nation-state seems a ‘bad idea’ so let it go ‘insane’. That appears part of the point from some avenues.” — zazelle

      Note the weaselly modifiers: “seems”, “appears”, “from some avenues”. Is the nation state a bad idea or not? Hard to be equivocal on such an important topic. Ah, but then we also have “let it go insane”. Thanks for coming out. Trouble is, when “it” goes insane, by sheer mathematical and civilizational force, you’ll catch the ‘virus’ too.

      “There are bound to be similarities and differences to human activities across different times, locales and circumstances.” — zazelle

      Note again the weaselly general statement, meant to convey scope, but instead conveying empty abstraction. JHK’s comparison of the current insanity to tactics of the Red Guard has many similarities, and’ve been made by many other commentators because they’re pertinent.

      “Collapse/Decline, along with such things as civil war, often seem kind of baked into civilizations from their inception.” — zazelle

      More weasel words: “often”, “kind of”, “such things”. But since you used the word “often”, it means civil war isn’t inevitable. Even were it so, does that necessitate being a defeatist as to letting it occur unfettered?

      “The solar system has ‘senselessly’ rattled the earth with all manner of ‘senseless’ violence.
      And from that came us” — zazelle

      In a truly loopy parallel, zazelle draws a direct line between JHK’s phrase of “senseless violence” to describe the objective reality of the past month, and the solar system’s … what? … act of moral will against the Earth’s transgressions?

      “BTW, slavery never really went away. Much of it just got rebranded and repackaged as ‘a job/career’ working for/getting pimped by ‘The boss’ and ‘The Governpimp’.” — zazelle

      Apparently, slaves working 14 hours a day picking cotton under 100 deg heat equals Blacks, sitting in air-conditioned offices, bored out of their skulls. And “The Governpimp”? Besides the word abomination straining for cuteness, how is the gov’t pimping out anyone? Covid’s caused a lot of problems, but being released from jobs isn’t exactly being a field satrap. If you want to stretch the troubled and thin cord of analogy further, the gov’t is the reverse pimp sending those jobs overseas without the “slaves”.

      Then we have diversion into permaculture quotes and interview snippets which … doesn’t exactly tie into any of JHK’s bi-weekly missive.

      ““The modern education system was designed to teach future factory workers to be ‘punctual, docile, and sober’…

      Factory owners required a docile, agreeable workers who would show up on time and do what their managers told them. Sitting in a classroom all day with a teacher was good training for that. Early industrialists were instrumental, then, in creating and promoting universal education.” ~ Allison Schrager” — zazelle

      Yeah, I read quite a bit of this education reform non-fiction from the late 60s (don’t know when this was written, but it’s similar in tone and direction). It’s rather quaint now, isn’t it? At its best, the education system, despite its faults (how could it be perfect, what with the many rotten ‘teachers’ who often gravitate easily to positions where they can bully defenseless kids; the sh!tty parents who fail to inculcate discipline in their charges; the administrative boondoggles), produces young people who can read, write, compute, reason, speak with respect, get along with others their own age, and learn in a moderately decent environment, with extra help provided if requested. That whole “obedience and docility” obsession was just of-a-piece with the time — hippies and other free love proponents just wanted to hang out and “do our own creative thing without hassles from uptight elders, man!”

      D+ for zazelle

        Things like context and self-similarity are important, as is caution, such as for example when working in scientific eadeavors– you know, hypotheses, theories and all that?– and dealing with/referring to complexity, including history.

        Unfortunately, it’s hardly just an idea, but what do you think?
        It might be a good idea for some, maybe you, but it’s a bad idea if it’s imposed on people coercively.

        “Trouble is, when ‘it’ goes insane, by sheer mathematical and civilizational force, you’ll catch the ‘virus’ too.” ~ Soul Forensics

        “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” ~ John F. Kennedy

        Preventing people in different ways from doing certain things like getting off a sinking titanic would seem to help build lots of contempt and resentment, the kinds that make normally peaceful people less so.

        “The solar system has ‘senselessly’ rattled the earth with all manner of ‘senseless’ violence.

        Place people in a pressure cooker, turn up the heat, and see what happens. Much of this so-called senseless violence makes a whole lot of sense.

        “BTW, slavery never really went away. Much of it just got rebranded and repackaged as ‘a job/career’ working for/getting pimped by ‘The boss’ and ‘The Governpimp’.” — zazelle

        “Apparently, slaves working 14 hours a day picking cotton under 100 deg heat equals Blacks, sitting in air-conditioned offices, bored out of their skulls.” ~ Soul Forensics

        Apparently that’s a straw man and a false dichotomy; you agree that it’s wage slavery; and that you’re ok with it/slavery. Have we got that right?

        “And ‘The Governpimp’? Besides the word abomination straining for cuteness, how is the gov’t pimping out anyone?”

        Language is dynamic. How old is English? How has it changed?
        Get off your thumbs and look up the definition of pimp and then look at governments from an anarchist perspective.
        Pimping is probably a charitable term. Maybe I should change it. How about Governclusterfuck?

        “If you want to stretch the troubled and thin cord of analogy further, the gov’t is the reverse pimp sending those jobs overseas without the ‘slaves’.” ~ Soul Forensics

        And then there’s the crony capitalist plutarchy and economic colonialism, etc., that, presumably, operates according to governpimp rules and regs.

        ‘Exactly’? Well I guess not to you anyway.

    I think it’s a pretty major re-writing of reality to blame African-American people as a whole for the current problems they face.

    The Civil Rights legislative acts of the 1960s were a way overdue set of reforms that simply had to occur – given how awful so many states were – reforms had to come from the national government.

    But just like after Reconstruction, when widespread Jim Crow laws were enacted to entrench ‘systemic racism’, the decades since 1965 have not seen the recognition and acceptance of Black America, and it seems to me that the strength and breadth of the BLM protests have been a long time coming.

    I certainly don’t hold with mushy (or morally relativist) progressive thinking – glorifying street mayhem and property destruction – but it’s pretty easy to understand why it happens, and why there is so much stored-up resentment (and hatred) against white cops – even in cities with black mayors..

    I’m also sceptical of the notion that “Black America” (which isn’t an amorphous, homogeneous demographic in any case) rejected integration | full participation in society, as a result of deliberate movements to resist such assimilation.

    Outfits that threw up leaders like Stokely Carmichael, Angela Davis, Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan, etc, I think emerged because the Civil Rights movement didn’t deliver equality and justice … it isn’t the other way around.

    The urban ghettos – mostly in the north – are an absolute stain on an otherwise prosperous and civilised nation, but I think we have to go a fair bit deeper to find what the solutions are to these multi-generation problems.

    It really is about a fairer distribution of the real pie – not the welfare handouts, they are a symptom and not a cause – the current dreadful situation is indeed quite ‘systemic’, and not a result of young black dudes seeing no further than living in a world of jive-talk, crime & prison, and lusting after a new pair of sneakers.

    • Kim July 4, 2020 at 6:52 am #

      Too many blacks are incorrigibly violent and untrustworthy criminals with no skills, social or productive, and a predatory attitude towards other humans.

      One in three adult black males has been convicted of a felony.

      Very often the targets of their crimes are white.

      “Whites” (including Hispanics) kill at a rate of around 5 per 100,000 while the rate for blacks is around 43 per 100,000. Blacks are therefore 8.5 times more likely to commit murder than whites.

      All by themselves, blacks account for the fact that the United States has a higher murder rate than England or Italy.

      …………………………………………………………………………….

      You say:

      “The urban ghettos – mostly in the north – are an absolute stain on an otherwise prosperous and civilised nation”

      I ask:

      Have you ever actually been to the United States? I have the strong impression that you have never even visited the country, much less spent any time in the hood. Yet from all the way over there in the Antipodes you set yourself up as some kind of experton American life and politics.

      ………………………………………………………………………

      Most places in the United States that have very high black crime rates are from time to time called “ghettoes” but – from the point of view of housing stock and compared to almost any other place in the world – are in fact areas made up of very high quality single family suburban housing with surrounding yards and parks, or are recently developed high-density low-income housing.

      These are areas which, if they were filled with Indonesians or Taiwanese, or – blessing of blessings – Japanese – would soon be recognized as charming, industrious, low-crime and safe middle class areas with good schools and well-maintained homes.

      Filled with blacks, however, these same types of areas quickly become unmanageable, crime-ridden hell-holes. I refer you to the hellish criminal experience that East Melbourne has had as a result of planting its suburbs with Somalies. It has been an utter disaster. They now terrorize the industrious Vietnamese who preceded them to that area to teh point that teh Vietnames have hired private secutrity, patrol teh main shopping street, and have a daily struggle with Somali shoplifting flash mobs.

      For reference to what kinds of conditions America’s blacks most typically live in, you might consult thousands of Youtube videos of black crime and violence and many television reality crime shows like “First 48”.

      The reality of black urban living conditions are there for you to see in almist any scene (excluding crack houses). The “good boys” and teir parent(s) appear to be among the richest people in the world. The housing stock where they commit their shooings and drug deals and spontaneous anger-killings is solid and well-maintained (not by them). They are always driving nice cars, have new brandwear clothes and electronic toys, are well fed and are provided with every service the first world can offer (especially 911).

      Of course, they are often “food deserts” because no retail grocer could stay open in such a high-crime environment, between the shoplifting and the armed robberies.

      Only the lowest crack addicts, white or black, live in burnt out houses in Chicago.

      The so-called “black ghetto” that you imagine exists as some kind of basic part of the black experience in the USA is a ridiculous and easily-disproven fiction.

      • BackRowHeckler July 4, 2020 at 7:18 am #

        The violent crime rate in White America is equal to that of Czechoslavakia — IOW, pretty low.

        Growing up in rural Ct everybody had firearms, not so much handguns but rifles and shotguns. I don’t remember anybody ever getting shot, either intentionally or accidentally, or a gun being used in the commission of a crime.

        Violent crime using firearms seems to be an urban phenomena, committed by young black males in street gangs. For example, in Chicago this weekend, as many as 150 people could be shot, which won’t be unusual, incidentally. Black Lives Matter, what a joke!

        ‘Nineteen Facts About American Policing That Will Blow Your Mind’
        by Lee Camp, Consortium News, June 1, 2020 (exerpts– see original site for full article)

        …In 2016 The Guardian found that American police murdered 1,093. That’s three lives extinguished by police every day.

        …The vast majority of those Americans killed are not ‘hardened’ criminals (whatever that means). The Treatment Advocacy Center finds that one out of every four people killed by U.S. police was severely mentally ill. If you add in simply mentally unstable or cognitively impaired, the number is much higher…

        …Last year NBC news found that since 2005, only 35 officers had been convicted of any crime after having taken someone’s life… Less than one percent. But it gets worse.

        …NBC reports, ‘Only three officers have been convicted of murder during this period [2005 to 2019] and seen their convictions stand.’ That’s a rate of conviction of .024% – For all intents and purposes police officers can murder with impunity

        …The vast majority of what police do in America is not run around catching the evil-doers like an episode of CSI or Law & Order or…

        …Professor Alex Vitale notes in ‘The End of Policing’ that most cops average less than one felony arrest per year – meaning almost the entirety of a police officer’s day-to-day consists of standing around and occasionally dealing with small or nothing crimes. These ‘crimes’ such as loitering or ‘causing a disturbance’ are designed to simply ‘put people in the system’. People of color are far more likely to be arrested for these types of crimes

        …Rather than working harder to solve larger crimes, our government officials have created hundreds of smaller ‘crimes’ for police to nail citizens for. In the past few decades there has been a surge of bans on things like sleeping in public, begging, giving away free food, ‘camping’ in public, and sleeping in one’s car. Laws like these only serve to make homelessness (and helping the homeless) illegal and allow police to insert themselves, often upending lives…

        …A study in New York City found that over half of those who cycle regularly through the prison system were homeless. Does anyone honestly believe that endlessly grabbing homeless people and charging them for nothing crimes does anything to help our society or the people involved? The fact that most officers spend their days doing this is equivalent to firefighters walking around spraying people’s cigarettes with water while the actual building fires are left to burn…

        …These so-called ‘crimes’ serve to simply enforce the class structure and give police a reason to arrest the poor and the non-white.

        Meanwhile, the true crimes don’t even garner a glance. The largest crimes in the nation and the world are often legal

        Corporate executives endlessly decide to dump toxins in our water or keep a baby powder on the shelves when they know it contains asbestos or continue sales of an herbicide when they know it causes cancer…

        As Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow has put it… ‘This system is better designed to create crime, and a perpetual class of people labeled criminals.’…

        Police in some regards commit more crime than average citizens. Police now seize more from citizens via civil asset forfeiture than the amount of property stolen by street criminals in burglaries.

        in Standing Rock the law enforcement were steadfastly guarding a pipeline against the people who actually owned the land through which it stabbed and drank the water it would ultimately contaminate.

        So we’ve established police are not doing the job most people think they are and that they kill a lot of innocent people while acting like military patrols on the streets…

        And finally, we must ask, ‘If our policing system is a draconian, military-style, Orwellian model used to consolidate an entrenched class hierarchy, then where did it come from? How did we get here?’

        As detailed in ‘Our Enemies in Blue’, the American police system originated from slave patrols… From its earliest days the American model was a racist tactic to protect the higher class people from the downtrodden and oppressed… The system has not largely changed since those early days.

        Prof. Vitale writes, ‘The reality is that the police exist primarily as a system for managing and even producing inequality by suppressing social movements and tightly managing the behaviors of poor and nonwhite people: those on the losing end of economic and political arrangements.’…
        We need a completely new/different/smaller/less-violent model. And we need it starting 400 years ago.”

        Have you ever actually been to the United States? I have the strong impression that you have never even visited the country, much less spent any time in the hood. Yet from all the way over there in the Antipodes you set yourself up as some kind of expert on American life and politics.

        LOL You don’t have to be an American to understand the place … in fact it’s often the case that outside observers can “see” things better than the fish that live in the water. And I just enjoy commenting … I have never once claimed “expertise”,

        But yes – we have visited the US extensively … about eight trips, 18 months in toto, about 36 states, plus DC, plus two territories, 80,000 km, and a number of pretty tough inner cities. We’ve seen the highs and lows.

        We’ve seen the Grand Canyon in the depths of winter, and watched the Yankees at Yankee Stadium in high summer, and the Baltimore Ravens in November … we’ve walked through plenty of gritty areas as well.

        We visited the White House on the day of the crazy general election in 2000.

          What is really beyond parody was Trump’s speech at his fireworks show at Mt Rushmore … it was really hysterical.

          Apart from his Adderall-induced sing-song reading of the teleprompter like a nervous 5th Grader desperate to not make a mistake – about 95% of it was exactly NOT what Trump and all his mad-hatters believe.

        Benr, the better approach is not to engage the Media Matters agent on his terms.

        Instead, ask him how Newsmax is the source for a statement that came directly from the WHO.

        “So it came as a surprise when Maria Van Kerkhove, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) technical lead for COVID-19, said at a press briefing on June 8 that asymptomatic transmission appears to be ‘very rare.’”

      What’s the big deal with testing? I see pictures of people lining up for miles to be tested. You test positive. So what. What are you gonna do about it? I’ve been tested It was a total waste of time. The hospital made me do it so I could get an operation performed which should have been done March 31 but was postponed for 3 months by which time my surgeon said my condition had deteriorated quite a bit. I’m sure there are people out there dying because of these delays. While I was in the hospital I talked to a bunch of nurses, assistants, etc. They told me that they have had shifts cut because of no business coming in for the last few months. My town was a covid hotspot. The hospital still was slow.

          Indeed. It is simply about bumping up numbers for narrative engineers within the McMedia.

          The beauty is, not only have deaths gone down, but the spike in positive tests mean there are FAR more asymptomatic carriers than predicted, meaning that death count of the infected population is so low as to be comical.

    I’ve been bothered for some time by the insane comments here but now JHK seems to have jumped the shark.
    (In)the mid-20th century. America had just fought and won a war against manifest evil… – no, utterly untrue.
    Russia destroyed the German war machine in the East and Britain, aided by the Empire, especially India, and Commonwealth/Dominion troops had fought it to a standstill in the west & south, specifically Greece & Italy.
    Just as in WWI, the US came in at the tail end, resource rich, fresh & well rested,stole the kudos and imposed itself upon the exhausted combatants.
    It then started the Cold War, utterly without justification, on behalf of the banking class.
    As Johnson said when signing the Public Accommodations Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968 legislation, “we’ve lost the South for at least two generations“.
    Shamefully, he then does the bait’n’switch of so many of the bien pissant persuasion with dog whistles such as “…“public assistance” — a self-reinforcing poverty generator…” followed by appeals to the worst of the Puritanism – which has made the Benighted States a laughing stock throughout the civilised world (apart from lack of a public health service, fair voting, paid annual leave and such folderole) with “…out-of-wedlock births“. Quel horreur! As for drugs – the very epitome of Law being the Crime – that is unworthy of the worst ratbag.

    The Republican Party dominated American politics prior the the Great Depression, which under FDR dethroned the Republicans. In the 1920’s, the Democratic Party was largely the party of the Ku Klux Klan in both the North and in Dixie. (Have you ever actually been in Dixie? Dixie’s “Hot”. Feels great to be in Dixie, especially after a couple of Whiskey Sours.). The KKK at the time was very strong in Upstate New York when FDR was Governor of New York. In any case, now is a golden time to start a new Third Party. Huge power vacuum in the US.

      It is people like you who keep them down. You don’t think black people can be expected to behave in a civilized manner. So all the articulate black people, who are not hard to find, are just “talking white?”

      Yet blacks from the islands or Africa do not behave like that.

      Helen,

      JHK’s comment section may have devolved or at least stagnated somewhat (assuming the comment section was ever sufficiently evolved to begin with.) to look a bit like, say, Zero Hedge’s last time I looked.

      The irony, perhaps, is that it looks like many more of those around the Millennial generation ages have managed to infest it and it may be that it chases JHK over to ‘Parler’ and has him close the comment section here for good.
      Parler has some moderation and it would be interesting to throw the comments here under the most recent article through their filters to see what sticks.

      “Our content is moderated based off the FCC and the Supreme court of the United States which enables free expression without violence and a lack of censorship.” ~ Parler site

      Anyway, that BLM is a ‘hustle’ so to speak seems rather self-evident. But in a sense, so what. Play/Hustle/Game/Pimp/Etc. enough people long enough and there’s bound to be blowback. It’s like, ‘well duh’. BLM has of course much so-called ‘white’ support.

      Incidentally, likely in large part because Resilience’s comment section is also baby-sat, the comments appear of a higher calibre. So I recommend it and might catch you there if you go.

    FDR bought the Warms Springs, Georgia spa. I think that Warms Springs is in the hills of Northern Georgia. That’s Nathan Bedford Forrest KKK country. FDR was hobnobbing with all of the Georgia crackers. Apparently, at that time, most voters were farmers and country folks.

    There could be no better place to celebrate America’s independence than beneath this magnificent, incredible, majestic mountain and monument to the greatest Americans who have ever lived.

    Today, we pay tribute to the exceptional lives and extraordinary legacies of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt. (Applause.) I am here as your President to proclaim before the country and before the world: This monument will never be desecrated — (applause) — these heroes will never be defaced, their legacy will never, ever be destroyed, their achievements will never be forgotten, and Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our forefathers and to our freedom. (Applause.)

    AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

    THE PRESIDENT: We gather tonight to herald the most important day in the history of nations: July 4th, 1776. At those words, every American heart should swell with pride. Every American family should cheer with delight. And every American patriot should be filled with joy, because each of you lives in the most magnificent country in the history of the world, and it will soon be greater than ever before. (Applause.)

    Our Founders launched not only a revolution in government, but a revolution in the pursuit of justice, equality, liberty, and prosperity. No nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America. And no people have done more to promote human progress than the citizens of our great nation. (Applause.)

    It was all made possible by the courage of 56 patriots who gathered in Philadelphia 244 years ago and signed the Declaration of Independence. (Applause.) They enshrined a divine truth that changed the world forever when they said: “…all men are created equal.”

    These immortal words set in motion the unstoppable march of freedom. Our Founders boldly declared that we are all endowed with the same divine rights — given [to] us by our Creator in Heaven. And that which God has given us, we will allow no one, ever, to take away — ever. (Applause.)

    Seventeen seventy-six represented the culmination of thousands of years of western civilization and the triumph not only of spirit, but of wisdom, philosophy, and reason.

    And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled, they bled to secure.

    Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children.

    AUDIENCE: Booo —

    THE PRESIDENT: Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our Founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities. Many of these people have no idea why they are doing this, but some know exactly what they are doing. They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive. But no, the American people are strong and proud, and they will not allow our country, and all of its values, history, and culture, to be taken from them. (Applause.)

    AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

    THE PRESIDENT: One of their political weapons is “Cancel Culture” — driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and our values, and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America. (Applause.) This attack on our liberty, our magnificent liberty, must be stopped, and it will be stopped very quickly. We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation’s children, end this radical assault, and preserve our beloved American way of life. (Applause.)

    In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us. (Applause.)

    Make no mistake: this left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing, they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery, and progress.

    To make this possible, they are determined to tear down every statue, symbol, and memory of our national heritage.

    AUDIENCE MEMBER: Not on my watch! (Applause.)

    THE PRESIDENT: True. That’s very true, actually. (Laughter.) That is why I am deploying federal law enforcement to protect our monuments, arrest the rioters, and prosecute offenders to the fullest extent of the law. (Applause.)

    AUDIENCE: Four more years! Four more years! Four more years!

    THE PRESIDENT: I am pleased to report that yesterday, federal agents arrested the suspected ringleader of the attack on the statue of Andrew Jackson in Washington, D.C. — (applause) — and, in addition, hundreds more have been arrested. (Applause.)

    Under the executive order I signed last week — pertaining to the Veterans’ Memorial Preservation and Recognition Act and other laws — people who damage or deface federal statues or monuments will get a minimum of 10 years in prison. (Applause.) And obviously, that includes our beautiful Mount Rushmore. (Applause.)

    Our people have a great memory. They will never forget the destruction of statues and monuments to George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, abolitionists, and many others.

    The violent mayhem we have seen in the streets of cities that are run by liberal Democrats, in every case, is the predictable result of years of extreme indoctrination and bias in education, journalism, and other cultural institutions.

    Against every law of society and nature, our children are taught in school to hate their own country, and to believe that the men and women who built it were not heroes, but that were villains. The radical view of American history is a web of lies — all perspective is removed, every virtue is obscured, every motive is twisted, every fact is distorted, and every flaw is magnified until the history is purged and the record is disfigured beyond all recognition.

    This movement is openly attacking the legacies of every person on Mount Rushmore. They defile the memory of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt. Today, we will set history and history’s record straight. (Applause.)

    Before these figures were immortalized in stone, they were American giants in full flesh and blood, gallant men whose intrepid deeds unleashed the greatest leap of human advancement the world has ever known. Tonight, I will tell you and, most importantly, the youth of our nation, the true stories of these great, great men.

    From head to toe, George Washington represented the strength, grace, and dignity of the American people. From a small volunteer force of citizen farmers, he created the Continental Army out of nothing and rallied them to stand against the most powerful military on Earth.

    Through eight long years, through the brutal winter at Valley Forge, through setback after setback on the field of battle, he led those patriots to ultimate triumph. When the Army had dwindled to a few thousand men at Christmas of 1776, when defeat seemed absolutely certain, he took what remained of his forces on a daring nighttime crossing of the Delaware River.

    They marched through nine miles of frigid darkness, many without boots on their feet, leaving a trail of blood in the snow. In the morning, they seized victory at Trenton. After forcing the surrender of the most powerful empire on the planet at Yorktown, General Washington did not claim power, but simply returned to Mount Vernon as a private citizen.

    When called upon again, he presided over the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, and was unanimously elected our first President. (Applause.) When he stepped down after two terms, his former adversary King George called him “the greatest man of the age.” He remains first in our hearts to this day. For as long as Americans love this land, we will honor and cherish the father of our country, George Washington. (Applause.) He will never be removed, abolished, and most of all, he will never be forgotten. (Applause.)

    Thomas Jefferson — the great Thomas Jefferson — was 33 years old when he traveled north to Pennsylvania and brilliantly authored one of the greatest treasures of human history, the Declaration of Independence. He also drafted Virginia’s constitution, and conceived and wrote the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, a model for our cherished First Amendment.

    After serving as the first Secretary of State, and then Vice President, he was elected to the Presidency. He ordered American warriors to crush the Barbary pirates, he doubled the size of our nation with the Louisiana Purchase, and he sent the famous explorers Lewis and Clark into the west on a daring expedition to the Pacific Ocean.

    He was an architect, an inventor, a diplomat, a scholar, the founder of one of the world’s great universities, and an ardent defender of liberty. Americans will forever admire the author of American freedom, Thomas Jefferson. (Applause.) And he, too, will never, ever be abandoned by us. (Applause.)

    Abraham Lincoln, the savior of our union, was a self-taught country lawyer who grew up in a log cabin on the American frontier.

    The first Republican President, he rose to high office from obscurity, based on a force and clarity of his anti-slavery convictions. Very, very strong convictions.

    He signed the law that built the Transcontinental Railroad; he signed the Homestead Act, given to some incredible scholars — as simply defined, ordinary citizens free land to settle anywhere in the American West; and he led the country through the darkest hours of American history, giving every ounce of strength that he had to ensure that government of the people, by the people, and for the people did not perish from this Earth. (Applause.)

    He served as Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces during our bloodiest war, the struggle that saved our union and extinguished the evil of slavery. Over 600,000 died in that war; more than 20,000 were killed or wounded in a single day at Antietam. At Gettysburg, 157 years ago, the Union bravely withstood an assault of nearly 15,000 men and threw back Pickett’s charge.

    Lincoln won the Civil War; he issued the Emancipation Proclamation; he led the passage of the 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery for all time — (applause) — and ultimately, his determination to preserve our nation and our union cost him his life. For as long as we live, Americans will uphold and revere the immortal memory of President Abraham Lincoln. (Applause.)

    Theodore Roosevelt exemplified the unbridled confidence of our national culture and identity. He saw the towering grandeur of America’s mission in the world and he pursued it with overwhelming energy and zeal.

    As a Lieutenant Colonel during the Spanish-American War, he led the famous Rough Riders to defeat the enemy at San Juan Hill. He cleaned up corruption as Police Commissioner of New York City, then served as the Governor of New York, Vice President, and at 42 years old, became the youngest-ever President of the United States. (Applause.)

    He sent our great new naval fleet around the globe to announce America’s arrival as a world power. He gave us many of our national parks, including the Grand Canyon; he oversaw the construction of the awe-inspiring Panama Canal; and he is the only person ever awarded both the Nobel Peace Prize and the Congressional Medal of Honor. He was — (applause) — American freedom personified in full. The American people will never relinquish the bold, beautiful, and untamed spirit of Theodore Roosevelt. (Applause.)

    No movement that seeks to dismantle these treasured American legacies can possibly have a love of America at its heart. Can’t have it. No person who remains quiet at the destruction of this resplendent heritage can possibly lead us to a better future.

    The radical ideology attacking our country advances under the banner of social justice. But in truth, it would demolish both justice and society. It would transform justice into an instrument of division and vengeance, and it would turn our free and inclusive society into a place of repression, domination, and exclusion.

    They want to silence us, but we will not be silenced. (Applause.)

    AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

    AUDIENCE MEMBER: We love you!

    THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you very much.

    We will state the truth in full, without apology: We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on Earth.

    We are proud of the fact — (applause) — that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and we understand — (applause) — that these values have dramatically advanced the cause of peace and justice throughout the world.

    We know that the American family is the bedrock of American life. (Applause.)

    We recognize the solemn right and moral duty of every nation to secure its borders. (Applause.) And we are building the wall. (Applause.)

    We remember that governments exist to protect the safety and happiness of their own people. A nation must care for its own citizens first. We must take care of America first. It’s time. (Applause.)

    We believe in equal opportunity, equal justice, and equal treatment for citizens of every race, background, religion, and creed. Every child, of every color — born and unborn — is made in the holy image of God. (Applause.)

    We want free and open debate, not speech codes and cancel culture.

    We embrace tolerance, not prejudice.

    We support the courageous men and women of law enforcement. (Applause.) We will never abolish our police or our great Second Amendment, which gives us the right to keep and bear arms. (Applause.)

    We believe that our children should be taught to love their country, honor our history, and respect our great American flag. (Applause.)

    We stand tall, we stand proud, and we only kneel to Almighty God. (Applause.)

    This is who we are. This is what we believe. And these are the values that will guide us as we strive to build an even better and greater future.

    Those who seek to erase our heritage want Americans to forget our pride and our great dignity, so that we can no longer understand ourselves or America’s destiny. In toppling the heroes of 1776, they seek to dissolve the bonds of love and loyalty that we feel for our country, and that we feel for each other. Their goal is not a better America, their goal is the end of America.

    AUDIENCE: Booo —

    THE PRESIDENT: In its place, they want power for themselves. But just as patriots did in centuries past, the American people will stand in their way — and we will win, and win quickly and with great dignity. (Applause.)

    We will never let them rip America’s heroes from our monuments, or from our hearts. By tearing down Washington and Jefferson, these radicals would tear down the very heritage for which men gave their lives to win the Civil War; they would erase the memory that inspired those soldiers to go to their deaths, singing these words of the Battle Hymn of the Republic: “As He died to make men Holy, let us die to make men free, while God is marching on.” (Applause.)

    They would tear down the principles that propelled the abolition of slavery in America and, ultimately, around the world, ending an evil institution that had plagued humanity for thousands and thousands of years. Our opponents would tear apart the very documents that Martin Luther King used to express his dream, and the ideas that were the foundation of the righteous movement for Civil Rights. They would tear down the beliefs, culture, and identity that have made America the most vibrant and tolerant society in the history of the Earth.

    My fellow Americans, it is time to speak up loudly and strongly and powerfully and defend the integrity of our country. (Applause.)

    AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

    THE PRESIDENT: It is time for our politicians to summon the bravery and determination of our American ancestors. It is time. (Applause.) It is time to plant our flag and protect the greatest of this nation, for citizens of every race, in every city, and every part of this glorious land. For the sake of our honor, for the sake of our children, for the sake of our union, we must protect and preserve our history, our heritage, and our great heroes. (Applause.)

    Here tonight, before the eyes of our forefathers, Americans declare again, as we did 244 years ago: that we will not be tyrannized, we will not be demeaned, and we will not be intimidated by bad, evil people. It will not happen. (Applause.)

    AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

    THE PRESIDENT: We will proclaim the ideals of the Declaration of Independence, and we will never surrender the spirit and the courage and the cause of July 4th, 1776.

    Upon this ground, we will stand firm and unwavering. In the face of lies meant to divide us, demoralize us, and diminish us, we will show that the story of America unites us, inspires us, includes us all, and makes everyone free.

    We must demand that our children are taught once again to see America as did Reverend Martin Luther King, when he said that the Founders had signed “a promissory note” to every future generation. Dr. King saw that the mission of justice required us to fully embrace our founding ideals. Those ideals are so important to us — the founding ideals. He called on his fellow citizens not to rip down their heritage, but to live up to their heritage. (Applause.)

    Above all, our children, from every community, must be taught that to be American is to inherit the spirit of the most adventurous and confident people ever to walk the face of the Earth.

    Americans are the people who pursued our Manifest Destiny across the ocean, into the uncharted wilderness, over the tallest mountains, and then into the skies and even into the stars.

    We are the country of Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, and Frederick Douglass. We are the land of Wild Bill Hickock and Buffalo Bill Cody. (Applause.) We are the nation that gave rise to the Wright Brothers, the Tuskegee Airmen — (applause) — Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Jesse Owens, George Patton — General George Patton — the great Louie Armstrong, Alan Shepard, Elvis Presley, and Mohammad Ali. (Applause.) And only America could have produced them all. (Applause.) No other place.

    We are the culture that put up the Hoover Dam, laid down the highways, and sculpted the skyline of Manhattan. We are the people who dreamed a spectacular dream — it was called: Las Vegas, in the Nevada desert; who built up Miami from the Florida marsh; and who carved our heroes into the face of Mount Rushmore. (Applause.)

    Americans harnessed electricity, split the atom, and gave the world the telephone and the Internet. We settled the Wild West, won two World Wars, landed American astronauts on the Moon — and one day very soon, we will plant our flag on Mars.

    We gave the world the poetry of Walt Whitman, the stories of Mark Twain, the songs of Irving Berlin, the voice of Ella Fitzgerald, the style of Frank Sinatra — (applause) — the comedy of Bob Hope, the power of the Saturn V rocket, the toughness of the Ford F-150 — (applause) — and the awesome might of the American aircraft carriers.

    Americans must never lose sight of this miraculous story. You should never lose sight of it, because nobody has ever done it like we have done it. So today, under the authority vested in me as President of the United States — (applause) — I am announcing the creation of a new monument to the giants of our past. I am signing an executive order to establish the National Garden of American Heroes, a vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans to ever live. (Applause.)

    From this night and from this magnificent place, let us go forward united in our purpose and re-dedicated in our resolve. We will raise the next generation of American patriots. We will write the next thrilling chapter of the American adventure. And we will teach our children to know that they live in a land of legends, that nothing can stop them, and that no one can hold them down. (Applause.) They will know that in America, you can do anything, you can be anything, and together, we can achieve anything. (Applause.)

    Uplifted by the titans of Mount Rushmore, we will find unity that no one expected; we will make strides that no one thought possible. This country will be everything that our citizens have hoped for, for so many years, and that our enemies fear — because we will never forget that American freedom exists for American greatness. And that’s what we have: American greatness. (Applause.)

    Centuries from now, our legacy will be the cities we built, the champions we forged, the good we did, and the monuments we created to inspire us all.

    My fellow citizens: America’s destiny is in our sights. America’s heroes are embedded in our hearts. America’s future is in our hands. And ladies and gentlemen: the best is yet to come. (Applause.)

    AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

    THE PRESIDENT: This has been a great honor for the First Lady and myself to be with you. I love your state. I love this country. I’d like to wish everybody a very happy Fourth of July. To all, God bless you, God bless your families, God bless our great military, and God bless America. Thank you very much. (Applause.)

    END

    SV: Well it’s the best we could hope for. Not White Nationalism, but strong Civic Nationalism. If he backs it up with force, then he’ll win the election and give us more time to prepare. But nothing can stop the coming tsunami. Putting the downed statues in a park is an acknowledgement of that I’d say. They’re not going back up where the were in other words.

    Can we hope for more? Martial Law, the End of the Republic and the rise of the Trump Dynasty? Only that trickster time will tell.

    History Lesson

    FDR was reticent and passive in his support for the repeal of the 18th Amendment. Why? FDR was basically a polygamist with multiple girl friends in addition to his lesbian wife, Eleanor. FDR’s legs didn’t work, but fortunately his penis still worked. Thank God! It is unclear if FDR was getting-it-on with the Southern Belles in Georgia and whether he was a Pussy Eater?

    If this does not define crazy what does? For several weeks apparently, protestors have been shutting down the interstate through Seattle for BLM fun and games. The State Patrol has been shutting down the ramps to keep everybody safe but last night a Jaguar went by a closed sign or something and barreled into two women protestors. Doing what looks to be about 40. They are in critical condition. The video shows at least 20 people scattering before the car.

    What is the point of stopping freeway traffic in the middle of the night for days on end when nobody even knows about it?

    This virus affects more than the lungs! It makes crazy brain too.

    Germany probes into a 30,000 pedophile ring. It’s the same in Italy France Spain Belgium. Often times they abuse the children and then ritualistically murder them. The whole of that continent is completely sick to the core.

    • Nightowl July 4, 2020 at 4:31 pm #

      Yes, cult-based ritualistic abuse and sacrifice is real. Here in Germany, I have heard of all kinds of documented cases from social workers and psychologists who work with or are networked with my wife.

      The laws here are also very lax when it comes to enforcing crimes against children, which infuriates the professionals fighting for these kids.

      • akmofo July 4, 2020 at 5:34 pm #

        30,000!! Where are the parents?!!! What’s going on here?

        • Nightowl July 4, 2020 at 5:50 pm #

          It is the laws, primarily. They are incredibly lax and many of these kids simply get groomed and end up in situations they cannot understand, much less escape.

          The ritualistic stuff I know less about, but I have heard many case stories.

        • BackRowHeckler July 4, 2020 at 7:15 pm #

          That’s a good question, Akmofo. Exactly where are the fathers of these kids?

          A few years back a creep was showing too much interest in one of our pretty 16 yo nieces at her job in a local restaurant; her father was concerned, he organized some of his biker friends and a few family members (including yours truly) to make ourselves apparent and keep an informal eye on her, including an escort home from work after dark. I know the bikers usually roll armed, and I’m willing to bet most of the dudes in our family saw fit to bring a little something along with them, too. That’s what it takes sometimes.

          Brh

          • akmofo July 4, 2020 at 7:40 pm #

            Glad to hear that your niece wasn’t harmed and for the positive resolution.

            I read many of Epstein’s recruits were ordinary Florida high school girls looking to make extra cash prostituting. I don’t understand how the parents would not notice the extra toys or clothing or spending money and not wonder where it’s coming from. I’m guessing people are so overworked they completely neglect their family.

    • Kakadu Man July 4, 2020 at 5:48 pm #

      The whole of that continent is completely sick to the core.

      Hold the phone … it’s a bit rich condemning a whole continent as rotten and perverted just on the basis of a paedophile ring. I’m sure Israel has them as well.

      • akmofo July 4, 2020 at 6:19 pm #

        True, they do also exist in Israel. But it’s a rare individual and usually they get reported and put away on the first offense. 30,000 is just an outrageously chronic situation. Something is seriously wrong.

    • Kakadu Man July 4, 2020 at 8:56 pm #

      Germany probes into a 30,000 pedophile ring. It’s the same in Italy France Spain Belgium.

      Australia has a long and inglorious tradition of paedophilia, going all the way back to the foundation of the place as a series of military-run penal colonies.

      It ranges from the dangerous lone wolf (where victims are sometimes killed) through to sophisticated rings using the dark web, and upscale rings operating at the highest levels of the judiciary, law, and politics. And of course within the establishment churches.

      Quite a few however have come a cropper when their hard-drives are seized and thousands of photos are found.

      But I think the most common form is sex-tourism – Australia is pretty close to the Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand … and lots of predators naturally go where the prey is readily found.

      • Kim July 5, 2020 at 6:08 am #

        Indonesia is not a target for sex tourism. Of course its major cities have red light districts like anywhere else, but the suggestion that it has an officially tolerated sex tourism industry is just flat out wrong.

        On the contrary, Indonesia to this day happily remains one of the more sexually conservative countries in the world – porn is blocked on its internet – even while women enjoy a high status and great freedom in everyday life and work. In fact, I would say that Indonesian women would be close to the free-est and happiest women in the world.

        Once again, you have demonstrated your utter, cliche-ridden ignorance of the world outside your dirty little masturbatorium.

        • Kakadu Man July 6, 2020 at 2:55 am #

          Indonesia is not a target for sex tourism. Of course its major cities have red light districts like anywhere else, but the suggestion that it has an officially tolerated sex tourism industry is just flat out wrong.

          Sounds like you might not have been to Bali comrade … I’ve been there eight times (always with my partner). After 9:00 pm each night it is totally sin-city in Kuta, all under the watchful eye of the “police”. Millions of Australians have been there – lots of solo men included.

          But I concede that Bali is very much an outlier in terms of Indonesia as a whole.

    . . . countless well-paid jobs administering institutional policy . . .
    ==================================================
    A few years ago, at the small private college from which I retired last August, a college administration person, I think his job title was Coordinator of Diversity, lectured us about how wrong we were if we objected to the odor of newly-arrived refugee students from one of the African failed states. Somalia, maybe. The learned diversity expert pointed out that these unfortunate students were so busy struggling to survive that they had no time for personal hygiene. We should feel guilty, in other words, for noticing that they smelled.

    What really should have happened, of course, is for the administrator to have informed the refugees of the basics of personal grooming: everyone needs to take a bath or shower frequently, apply deodorant, and wear clean clothes. But no, this virtue-signalling, manipulative diversity coordinator would not think of doing what common sense required. And we should feel guilty for even thinking of it.

      Not to worry, Sprawl Capital

      I figure within 5 years about 1/3 of private colleges and universities operating today will be bankrupt and out of business. What happens to the thousands of Diversity Coordinators, Gender Study Professors, Black History hustlers and LGBQT promoters on their payroll is a good question? Maybe they’ll have to get real jobs like working in the bean fields under the hot sun. Similarly, big city newspapers are dying and ready to go toes up; Tribune papers are near bankruptcy, and USA today is about to fold. When these lefty woke rags go down somebody else will have to step up and hammer whitey every day with accusations of racism and sexism, mock the president, obfuscate the degree of black crime in their cities, and vigorously promote homosexuality in their Arts section and the sports page, and cheer on looters and rioters burning down cities (freedom fighters).

    Mob pulled down a marble statue of Christopher Columbus in Baltimore tonight. It was dragged to the inner harbor and thrown into the water. Apparently the mayor backed it, stating that protecting monuments was not a priority. The police were ordered not to interfere.

    This happened in a (former) Italian neighborhood. I’m assuming here that not too many Italian Americans live in that neighborhood any longer. In fact, there’s pretty much one demographic in Baltimore now at the exclusion of all others.

    from NBC op-ed, Nick Tilsen, Lakota Sioux

    On Friday, President Donald Trump will continue his tour of racism and colonialism, moving from Tulsa, Oklahoma, to the sacred Black Hills. Make no mistake, this visit is an attack on Indigenous people.

    I visit the Black Hills alongside many other Lakotas every year as part of a tradition we have maintained for thousands of years. Stretching from what is now known as South Dakota into Wyoming, they are a sacred place that I take my family and my children to, like the Vatican for Catholics or Mecca for Muslims. The hills are where I feel most connected to Creator.

    The Black Hills are also the site of death, violence and war. They are home to Mount Rushmore — a monument to white colonizers carved by a Ku Klux Klan sympathizer into land stolen from us by the U.S. government in 1877. Two of the men carved into that mountain are slave owners, and one approved the mass hangings of 38 Dakota men in the largest mass execution in the history of the United States.

    SV: Surely you can see that the Indians want us to leave. Are we going to oblige them or not? There’s no middle ground here. And his claim about the Black Hills is an untruth: the Sioux have only been in that area a few centuries. They were driven out of the northern woodlands by the Cree who got rifles before they did. They themselves will often say as much in their saner moments. They then drove smaller tribes out of their new homelands. How much guilt do THEY have about that? None, right?

    Bearing the hatred of the conquered is the first duty of the conqueror. We cannot weaken now. Think of our Blacks – they’ll have to go too! Don’t be heartless…..

    • Kakadu Man July 5, 2020 at 12:59 am #

      Surely you can see that the Indians want us to leave. Are we going to oblige them or not? There’s no middle ground here.

      You’re being hysterical – and incorrect. There precisely is a middle ground: Native Americans don’t want it “all” – they just want (a) hundreds of treaties to be honoured, and (b) for the remaining lands that they do hold to be protected, strengthened, and supported.

      Unbelievable stuff – they have been kicked from arsehole to breakfast for centuries, deprived of 95% of their lands, and you still want “whitey” to claim victimhood, martyrdom, and underdog status. You’re a bloody marvel.

      • Sredni Vashtar July 5, 2020 at 1:45 am #

        Every little podunk tribe has its sacred acreage. Enough already. There would be nothing left for us. I invoke the sacred right of the conqueror. Woe to the vanquished!

      The Sioux weren’t in the Black Hills “for thousands of years”. That’s bullsh#t. They were pushed out of the Great Lakes area in the mid 18th century by the French. Relatively speaking, Sioux Indians were newcomers to the Dakotas.

      Brh

      • Kakadu Man July 5, 2020 at 2:25 am #

        The Sioux weren’t in the Black Hills “for thousands of years”. That’s bullsh#t.

        They were still landowners, and signed a treaty in 1851 giving them ownership of the Black Hills region … they had native title, and it has been usurped.

        And the author said they visited the Black Hills region each year, and that was a tradition for thousands of years – some form of seasonal food trail or ceremonial trail – one would assume.

      • stelmosfire July 5, 2020 at 10:03 am #

        The Lakota stole it from the Cheyenne who stole it from the Kiowa who stole it from someone else. Tough shit , that’s life. We granted the Lakota the Black Hills by treaty but they didn’t pay the taxes so we had to foreclose and take it back. Your local town would do the same to you or me.

    ” There’s no middle ground here ”

    Sure there is , it’s called Balkanization.

    — Which I suspect George Lincoln Rockwell would have endorsed.

    He was once invited to give a lecture to a Nation of Islam gathering.

    Imagine that ;

    A middle – aged, lower middle – class , white guy , in a brown shirt and swastika arm band , INVITED to speak before a gathering of 2,000 Black people , and he wasn’t heckled or beaten up………

    Nah ,

      Yes, it’s beautiful. Farakahn is the natural King of all Blacks. He’s the one we must deal with and no other.

      I’ve read Lame Deer: he knew very well that the Sioux had come out of the upper Midwest. They get into this mythical state and they forget factual history. They do it all the time. But a beautiful book, very different from Black Elk Speaks. He was fun guy, more accessible to Westerners.

    ” I never got an A+ in any university course until I informed an advisor that in all my time in tertiary education I only had a couple of A marks at best where most were B or A-. My thesis was that tertiary education was corrupt to the core just on marking alone, and I was right empirically too given that I was too well versed to be an A- on average against lessor minds that were more rule abiding and conformist towards professors and their dogmatic world views that would not last a second in the real world of work.

    Now that’s a run on sentence. ”

    Run on sentence or not , I had no trouble reading it .

    But then , the same year I read Paradise Lost , The Diary of Anne Frank , and All Quiet on the Western Front , ( I was 12 or 13 at the time ) I was in a remedial reading class.

      I don’t think JHK is doing anything of the sort … you are stretching a very long bow, and your aim isn’t very accurate either. The learning of English – decent literacy and numeracy – are necessary for a reasonable and successful life – no-ones says they are sufficient.

        And yours is more emotional than dispassionate.

        He keeps harping on ” Ebonics ” when ” Ebonics ” is no more a necessarily fair or accurate indicator of intelligence , education , drive , or aptitude , than Public School English would be in the Commonwealth.

        • Kakadu Man July 5, 2020 at 2:38 am #

          You’re being a bit incoherent … which is a step down from emotional, in my book.

          I’m no expert on Ebonics – or the political whirlpool that the teaching of African-American kids must be – but it would seem to me that teaching Standard English should be mandatory in every school – without crushing Ebonics.

          In my pretty extensive experience with Indigenous Australians, English might be their fourth or fifth language, but they still learn it. Traditional languages are supported – dictionaries, picture books, story books, and so on, are written in languages as well.

          It is called Two-Way Education, and it’s seen as pretty successful. But as I have said here a number of times, the Indigenous Australian experience is nearer to remote Native American than urban African-American.

          There are no easy answers to any of this – but taking a tough-guy right-wing stance on all this stuff I believe is going to go out of fashion. Good thing too.

    I have seen the same sort of thing , and more times than I can count too.

    You would think this would clue you in that there is something wrong with the narrative that says if you would just spend more time at the public library , and learn to talk like Shakespeare , you would get a higher wage and everything would be ok.

          And they will.

          Except that what people say , and what they actually think , are commonly two very different things.

          But go ahead and pretend to be smug , for all the good it will do you.

            Who said I was pretending? I’m intellectually and analytically superior to everybody on this forum … not that that is a really huge achievement … we’re working off a very low base.

            Wow, maybe you should get together with nightsoil for a conversation among equals.

            I never claimed I was smarter than everyone who posts here.

            I do laugh long and hard at your posts however.

            ROTFLOL
            Your nothing but a loud mouth.
            Who thinks he knows it all.

            To quote Ronnie Reagan-“Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”

            No other statement fits you so perfectly everything you post is garbage.

            Such a pathetic attempt at trolling you must really have an inferiority complex a mile wide and mile deep.
            I suspect you are also 5’2” and three hundred pounds of pure undiluted crap.

            Poor lil guy mommy must not have given you enough love.
            I almost feel sorry for you now.

            Almost.
