Does Vichy France Show Us A Way Forward?

Paul Johnson writes in Modern Times: It was Vichy which first put into effect the idea of tax-funded Family Allowances, conceived in 1932 by the demographer Adolphe Landry to raise the birth-rate; and under Vichy, for the first time in more than a century, the French birth-rate actually began to increase again. The psychological effect was profound. Vichy was devoted to youth, a craze it caught from the Germans. It spent far more on education than the Third Republic. It was Vichy which effectively created popular sport in France, especially football: there were only thirty professional footballers in France in 1939, ten times as many by 1943. One of the most striking features of Vichy were the ‘Youth Workshops’ or Chantiers de la Jeunesse (literally ‘shipyards’), with a stress on technical education which had hitherto been lacking. The aim was a rejuvenation of France. As Petain’s Minister of Information, Paul
Marion, put it, ‘Thanks to us, the France of camping, of sports, of
dances, of travel and group hikes will sweep away the France of
aperitifs, of tobacco dens, of party congresses and long digestions.’

Ta-Nehesi Coates: The New Messiah

Jared Taylor writes: Publishers Weekly set the tone: “Coates’s compelling, indeed stunning, work is rare in its power to make you want to slow down and read every word.” Slate predicted that the book is “destined to remain on store shelves, bedside tables, and high school and college syllabi long after its author or any of us have left this Earth.” Vogue wrote: “[I]t’s hard to think of a book that feels more necessary right now. Urgent, lyrical, and devastating in its precision, Coates has penned a new classic of our time.” Vice, which I thought tried to stay out of stampedes, assured us that the book is “as important and necessary as everyone says it is.” David Brooks, the New York Times’s lap-dog conservative wrote: “Between the World and Me, is a great and searing contribution to this public education. It is a mind-altering account of the black male experience. Every conscientious American should read it.” The Atlantic published an 8,500-word excerpt.

When the Economist complained that the book’s writing was “loquacious, repetitive, at times self-indulgent,” Salon wrote an entire article just to blast the review. The more obedient Denver Post called the book “a riveting mediation on the state of race in America,” and the New York Observer wrote that “Mr. Coates is the single best writer on the subject of race in the United States.”

What are we to make of this prodigy who outshines Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, and Jason Riley–and Cornell West and Toni Morrison (of course, no white person could ever be the best writer on race)? Between the World and Me is shockingly, appallingly bad. It is full of willful blindness, and shows a contempt and even hatred for whites that goes well beyond orthodoxy. There can be no common ground with any black who sees the world as Mr. Coates does. I don’t know whether his white admirers actually believe his poisonous raving or are simply indulging the Negro du jour, but there is no common ground with lunatics or cowards, either.

Rape Is A Game A Whole Mexican Family Can Play

Allan Wall writes: In the northern Mexican state of Durango (birthplace of Pancho Villa):

[R]apes are not reported because 70 percent of them are committed by close family members such as fathers, brothers and uncles.

([L]as violaciones sexuales no son denunciadas debido a que el 70 por ciento de las agresiones son cometidas por familiares cercanos como los padres, hermanos o tíos.)

[Evitan denunciar familiar violador (“They avoid reporting a family rapist”), by Gomez Palacio, el Siglo, July 11, 2015. Translations mine throughout]

Remember George W. Bush’s slogan about how “family values don’t stop at the Rio Grande”? For Durango rapists, rape is a family value. Are we supposed to believe such men would never victimize Americans?

durangorapistThe same day as this report, a Durango man (pictured) who allegedly raped his six-year old niece was apprehended [Detienen a una duranguense que violo a su sobrina de 6 anos, El Siglo, July 11, 2015]. The authorities were on this particular case for five years—but as the previous article indicates, many of these rapes are never even reported.

Mexico has a problem with rape. The huge population of Mexican illegals includes many rapists. Trump was right. Anyone who denies this is either ignorant or lying.

‘Coates is a pitiable affirmative-action/token hire’

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* Ta-Nehisi Coates is the unwitting butt of an extended joke which makes his employers and colleagues snort coffee out their noses every day as they stifle their guffaws when he walks by.

Coates thinks he is a talented, respectable writer. After all, doesn’t he have a byline– and much more importantly, a salary– at a well-known magazine? Don’t his little books garner fawning reviews?

In truth Coates is a pitiable affirmative-action/token hire. He is an ignorant man, a poor writer, and a pompous fool. No one will pop his bubble because they enjoy exploiting him and laughing at him behind his back too much.

The reason Coates has been given a staff-writer gig when thousands of much better writers (including many American black writers) are available and eager is that his employers and the readership they wish to amuse enjoy forcing nearly all white and asian Americans to pretend to respect Coates lest they be denounced as racists. Coates’ manifest incompetence makes the situation more delicious for those who use him as political-correctness bait.

Coates’ best hope is that someone will clue him in and then, in a moment of unusual brilliance, he will parlay his puffed-up status as a magazine writer into a tenured professorship at some HBCU or third-tier state college before he gets laid off from commercial publishing and finds that no one will employ him as a writer because they already have other goads for the politically-incorrect.

* Coates is basically a bright Gen X comic book nerd who’s found himself anointed the new James Baldwin and is uncomfortably trying to fill the demand. Look at some recent videos of him where it’s striking how guarded and closed off he is, then go look at how happy and relaxed he is in this old video where he’s talking about the X-Men with Alyssa Rosenberg and a couple of nerdy white dudes (the convergence of Coates, Rosenberg, and an extended discussion of X-Men: First Class makes it particular Steve bait).

* The thing about Coates is his writing style conjures an image of a man sobbing as he types out his complaints. There’s a strange immaturity to it that I never have been able to describe. The pleading just brings to mind someone writing their own ransom note.

I’ve always suspected he struggles with dis-confirmation. He overdoes his upbringing quite a bit. He did not live in the hard thumping parts of the ghetto. He grew up in what was at the time the black middle-class area. Lots of crime and dysfunction, but not The Wire. He went to Poly, which is an exam school for families keeping their kids out of trouble.

In other words, what he heard at home was and is nothing like what he experienced outside. Dad was always ranting about the blue-eyed devil, but at school the blue-eyed devil was his best friend. He’s a guy trying to keep it real, but living life as a white hipster in the suddenly white Harlem, working with other white hipsters.

* Screw Coates. The Eye of Sailer is upon him and his time, and those of his ilk, is about over. To me, he is nothing more than another black apologist for black dysfunction. And their time is running short. The evidence of black dysfunction being inherent in blacks is reaching a preponderance. Already you can corner liberals and have them responds, “Then what do you suggest? Genocide?” as evidence of their frustration and the dead end nature of the prior position.

I watched Brideshead Revisited (the old miniseries on Granada). And the Jeremy Irons character was narrating that it in 1923 Religion is dead and was it anymore than some quaint superstition or was it a moral code that still should guide society? He said “The answer to both was no.” So among the highest levels of English Society, Christianity was in 1923 a non-starter as an idea.

We are beginning the age of genetic determinism, and anyone that believes anything different will be thought to be an idiot by thinking people. The readership of the Sailer blog is one part of the advance party that will usher in this movement.

* …what Steve says about Jews: when you remove criticism of a group, people behave badly and selfishly. If you read black writing of the pre-civil rights era, there’s a huge emphasis on ‘uplifting the race’ and showing examples of black areas that behave well. There was an old guidebook for ‘Negro motorists’ someone put on Slate and it showed examples of black towns that were well-run, etc. (probably concentrations of the ‘talented tenth’ that now assimilates into white culture).

In the old days, Jews were terrified of being accused of ‘dual loyalty’ and hated guys like Pollard. Now, sadly…

* The anti-bullying school movement is just a way for sodomites to push their agenda in public schools without having to admit they want to reach – literally – young cute boys and convert them to their perversions

Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* Glad someone has the stones to call out TNC’s overly celebrated one-note writing…although I did watch Glen Loury and John McWhorter discuss him on Blogginghead (and McWhorter basically put his thoughts down in print in the Daily Beast earlier this week) and basically trash his work. As McWhorter says, TNC is basically the high priest of a religion, not a serious intellectual. He has an almost childish belief in a racial boogeyman that explains literally everything – his words, not mine – that plagues black society, never mind that to accept this view one must consider whites to be unbelievably cunning and far-sighted and blacks to be uniquely incapable of surmounting the challenges posed by life in a first world country.

* Serena Williams’ black body is celebrated in the New Adam Sandler film, at least if you’re a dwarf.

In 1985, Tina Turner had a star turn in Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. I remember my then-teenage self finding her black legs to be rather fetching. Rae Dawn Chong was in Commando with Arnold in the same year. Holly Robinson (then Holly Robinson Peete) was on 21 Jump Street in the late 80s, early 90s. I particularly liked the episode when she went undercover in Catholic school. There we have it, black bodies celebrated

Anyhow, my real question: do liberals actually believe this crap? Destroying Coates intellectually feels a bit unsporting, like beating up the aforementioned dwarf. The flaws in his reasoning, such as it is are so glaringly obvious that anybody should see them. When he doesn’t skip the whole “reasoning” thing altogether.

Are liberals just pretending to believe what he says, as a form of status display? A kind of weird peacocking, where they pretend to believe obvious nonsense? Or do they actually manage to brainwash themselves into believing his crap? If the latter, does it interfere with their cognitive functioning in other areas?

* Vanessa Williams won Miss America in 1984.

I remember the rush to get the next months issue of Penthouse , was hard to get due to the publicity of having Vanessa Williams spreading her legs for the camera, and having lesbian sex with her friend.

Suzette Charles, another Black body, was given the Miss America Crown when Williams was dethroned.

* I remember the late 80s-early 90s as a time when black achievement was celebrated in the culture. Steve mentions Michael Jordan (I want to be like Mike was a major advertising slogan); but I would add Cosby, Oprah, and Gen. Powell as public figures for whom the general public had admiration and trust–power of attorney levels of trust in some cases. In many ways, this period laid the groundwork for Pres. Bush’s appointments of Powell and Rice, and the election of Obama to the senate and presidency.

* What could the mean IQ of the Whites and Asians who opine for the NYT, the WaPo, the Atlantic, etc. be? Let’s say it’s 130 to 140. That would be roughly 2 to 2.5 SDs above the mean. The US Black distribution has a mean of 85 and an SD of 12, so perhaps we should expect 110 to 115 for people like Coates.

* There are a lot of rumors about Jordan and his supposedly less-than-wholesome true character, some of which venture off into conspiracy theory land. Like that his gambling problem got his father murdered by organized crime. Or that his two-year baseball sojourn was actually a suspension he served for betting on NBA games, which the league kept secret so as not to damage its reputation.

Between the Racist World and Ta Coates

From Amazon.com:

* Ta Coates is one of the great thinkers of the 21st century. Don’t agree? Then you’re on the wrong side of history.

Ta has written a book for the ages, chronicling such fascinating episodes as dating, doing poorly in academics because of racism, reading comic books, the racism of attractive white women he has asked out, what it was like to be in a down low relationship with Matt Yglesias for five months, cartoons, and the phenomenon known as “muhdik”. Between the World and Me (a brilliant title that counterbalances the entire world with Ta Coates’ genius) ranks with the Confessions of St. Augustine, if St. Augustine had done poorly in school and mostly just watched television and read comic books during his formative years. In fact St. Augustine is a rather trivial figure in Western history that you don’t need to have heard of, he never even influenced society through highly praised magazine columns, and his books are very boring compared to reading about the adventures of men in colorful skin tight costumes.

During a long and rambling eighth chapter, Ta discusses his brave decision to disable comments on his blog. He shows how talking back to a highly paid media personality is an example of “punching down”, employing a series of stories which usually involve noting that people who have promoted him are actually racist and did so only because they expected him to fail. There’s also a moving account of how he literally wept on discovering how to turn on Microsoft Word’s spelling and grammar checker.

As A.O.Scott has observed, Between Ta World and Me is “essential, like water or air”, a truism you’d have to be a real hate-in-your-soul racist to deny. As a matter of fact, people who are too racist to read and enjoy this brilliantly spelled and grammar-checked volume are expected to die very soon because this book is literally essential, like water or air. An edition in which all of the book’s passages are placed as dialogue between comic book heroes Black Lightning and Luke Cage is said to be in the works.

Like Ta’s 14-year-old son, you may not be interested in reading through the many spelling and grammar corrected pages of this book, but even just having it on your bookshelf is important until the forthcoming graphic novel version arrives. How will they know you’re not a racist otherwise? I personally enjoy reading it while enjoying water and air, two things that like this book are essential. Thus I give it the first star rating of excellence.

The Wit & Wisdom Of Ta-Nehisi Coates

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* I think I’ve figured out why Ta constantly repeats the phrase “black bodies”.

The phrase doesn’t have any real meaning because it doesn’t add any information. Replacing “black bodies” with simpler phrases such as “blacks” conveys the actual information more simply and directly.

But Ta’s objective is not to convey information. Rather, Ta’s purpose is poetic. He is trying to create a tribal bonding experience with the hypnotic repetition of various images, phrases, chants, and tokens.

Ta uses “black bodies” as a poetic trope. The phrase stretches out the word “black” from one syllable to three syllables. It is also alliterative. The phrase “black bodies” also has a syncopated rhythm, because the emphasis falls on the second syllable. To see this, repeatedly chant the phrase to a 4/4 rhythm with a rest on the fourth beat. “Black – BOD – ies – [pause], Black – BOD – ies – [pause], Black – BOD – ies – [pause]; etc.”

His repetition of the phrase “people who think they are white” has a similar poetic purpose. It stretches out the single word “white” while insulting whites with every repetition.

He can fill vast stretches of prose by concatenating such stretched-out phrases.

Homer used many such repeated, meaningless phrases. For instance, he often wrote “he spoke forth winged words” rather than just “he said”. When describing various characters, he pads out the text by repeating descriptions of each character whenever the character is mentioned. For instance, Achilles is often called “swift-footed Achilles”, even when Achilles is not doing anything swift-footed at that moment. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epithets_in_Homer)

Preachers often use the repetition of overblown phrases to stretch out their sermons because their objective is not to convey information, but to induce a religious trance via repetition. Similarly, Ta’s main purpose is not to convey information. Indeed, most of the purported “information” in his essays is nonsense. (He seems to chant obviously false memes such as “the Ferguson murder” to signal that truth is irrelevant to him.)

* People like TNC, Masha Gessen, Amy Chua, etc are kind of shorthand character sketches for the different ethno-identity politic strains current in this country. I also suspect that as many here have a bit of a Tom Wolfish kind of bent, identifying amusing prototypes make the discussion more fun.

* African Americans really have a difficult hand to play. They can go with the flow and blame all their problems on white racism. That’s easy, and absolves them of all responsibility, but also means they will always depend on the kindness of strangers. On the other hand, they can listen to Booker T. Washington, Bill Cosby, and Louis Farrakhan who advise them to study hard, stay off drugs, don’t have out-of-wedlock kids, police themselves, and invest in their own community. But in the cold light of day, they know those things aren’t really going to work out. Most are not going to do well in school, aren’t going to adequately defer gratification, and aren’t going to be successful in business. So that route just leads to a realization of their own inability to keep up or compete. Which leads them back to blaming whitey as the more palatable explanation.

* Does anybody know how TNC got his break? Who picked him out of obscurity and started putting his thoughts and his words out there in the mainstream? How did he go from being a nobody to being a featured somebody? Wikipedia doesn’t tell me, and I’m reluctant to disappear down the rabbit hole of TNC info online, so I’m hoping someone knows and can tell me.

And don’t think — not even FOR A SECOND — that my question is motivated by anything like bitterness over the fact that, even though I’m a clearer writer than TNC and a smarter and more original culture-observer, during my decades in the media biz no one ever plucked me out of obscurity, threw money at me, and put me out there as a featured thinker. Nope, doesn’t bother me A BIT that TNC is making a living for himself (and no doubt enjoying the spotlight) complaining about how rough it is for him to be black when he’s had a very nice gig fall in his lap at a still-young age while dozens if not hundreds of equally good (actually better, IMHO) writers have never had anything like his luck …

Why on earth does TNC think he has had it so hard when, as a writer, he has basically won the lottery? Forget me — how about Steve Sailer? As a writer, who’s had it (and continues to have it) rougher: TNC, or Steve?

* Perhaps the Talented Tenth is unique among elites in that their legacy has become dysfunction, even if we call it suffering, and they’ve become very stubborn about protecting that legacy because it’s invaluable–the perception that black Americans have suffered uniquely among peoples has them dominating politics and culture; not despite a history of failure but because of it. It’s the greatest con ever. But I think it’s one of the reasons the SJWs won’t yield their image of blacks but from cold, dead hands. Conventional thinking on race doesn’t exaggerate the problem, it inverts it. Reverse the arrow of causation, reverse the arrow of moral responsibility. It isn’t that white America cannot honor its debt to blacks because the sins are too profound, it’s that black America can’t honor its end of the bargain–to become peaceful and productive–due to a lack of human capital and will.

It’s also a proven political model, adopted to all manner of newcomers. Some angry, Suge Knight type guy should be fuming through his cigar right now over how the brothers aren’t getting paid for this.

* NC is in the spirit of the age, and has the right views and ancestry to be loved by the Powers That Be, corrupt though they are. As Steve himself has said, if Obama had been Indonesian rather than black, who would have ever heard of him again? He was able to play on the history of this country and its ambivalent attitude toward blacks to his favor; he was also able to come in at a time when the opposition party had been discredited by war and recession.

Success comes to those who can please the powerful. That is always as it has been. Nobody honors lonely truth-tellers like Steve, but for their small circle. And remember that even if you do play all your cards right and stroke all the right egos, you may still fail before some snake whose serpent’s tongue is more skillfully slimy than yours. That is the ‘chance’ in ‘time and chance happeneth to them all’.

* Blacks know instinctively, and correctly, they are not going to ever be “white” in their thinking or behavior, even as they know instinctively, and correctly, that “white” behavior and thinking is, or would be, better for themselves, their families, and their community.

In that they are more honest than most white people, who live in a sort of fantasy that they can be successful entrepreneurs, or come out “ahead” in the game in some other way, usually until they are in their forties or fifties when reality finally sets in. I used to think all the time I would be this bigtime this or that, even well into my thirties, and supported libertarian and business-conservative ideas to a fault. That’s why I voted Republican all those years. That’s why I turned down union or government jobs that would have given me a defined benefit pension and 9 to 5, forty hour stability. In 1955 or 1965 my thinking would have probably given me a lot more interesting life and a decent retirement too, but having been born in the sixties, not so much.

So blacks, at least, are acting in a sort of rational self interest, within the limits of their ability to think rationally. Whites choose not to do so and for that reason we are in trouble. if whites acted in terms of rational group self interest most of our issues would be fixed in five years. We’d secure the border, throw illegals out, reduce legal immigration to very little or none, tariff Chinese imports, and to put it bluntly we’d make black dysfunctionality so unpleasant for blacks they’d self-segregate or emigrate. We’d reduce their political power by requiring a voting test and we’d shut down any black church whose minister even hinted how his parishioners were supposed to vote as we do with the IRS to white ministers.

* David Carr, the recently deceased NYT writer, hired Coates at the DC City paper. He worked there with Jake Tapper & some other media notables today. Then Andrew Sullivan hired him at the New Republic.

* He’s black, he says the right things the ruling elite like to hear and read, he got noticed by the right people at the right time and viola! He’s a porch monkey or kept man for the white establishment.

You ever see the organ grinder and the monkey? The establishment is the organ grinder and the big named writers are the monkeys who dance(write) to the tune of the grinder. That’s all he is. It’s really nothing to aspire to. He’s just too stupid to notice what he is.

And if he ever gets a conscience and says things that the establishment doesn’t like such as securing the borders and supporting tariffs to bring back American jobs, he’s gone.

In this era, it’s not quality or competence that counts, it’s holding the right ideology – that opens the doors. Holding the wrong ideology will get them closed on you real fast, even if you are popular. Just ask Lou Dobbs or Perot.

* If some confident and unapologetic person like Trump were to announce that kicking out illegals and stopping mass legal immigration is a litmus test of national loyalty, I think we’d be pleasantly surprised by the number of blacks responding to that nativist appeal and the number of viva-la-raza triumphalists who would find it prudent to shut the hell up. (And, of course, the number of whites voting to save their country.)

* The real reason to condemn people like Michael Brown is because you want to deliver the lesson to your kids that you shouldn’t knock over convenience stores and then attack police officers. It’s rather dangerous for a community to make a hero out of someone like that. On the other hand, being honest about his self-destructive behavior would have robbed all the force out of a campaign against police violence that may yet result in some positive effect.

* Blacks heavily depend on the government to redistribute economic resources from whites over to them via welfare and affirmative action. Without affirmative action almost the entire black middle class wouldn’t exist and without welfare lots of underclass blacks would starve to death or have to work low paying unpleasant menial jobs. They’ll never support the Republican party in large numbers because of that and taking socially conservative positions on things like gay marriage won’t change that.

* Go to the front page at Yahoo and read through the headlines. A pattern quickly becomes apparent. Blacks in this country are under siege, they are being attacked on all fronts. They are being gunned down by police, denied opportunities to find employment, forced into substandard housing, vilified by the press, scapegoated for crime, and being discriminated against at every turn.

* “There is here the failure to identify the profound difference between aristocracy and the African Big Man model of cronyism.”

This is a very important point. When I began seriously thinking about Negro culture, society and politics (starting about fifteen years ago) one of the first things I noticed was the ubiquity of the “big man” model of social and political structure. Whenever and where ever there is a Negro community, one finds that community organizing around some one leader who represents the community to the outside world, more or less runs the community according to his whim at every level, and get’s a lion’s share of community resources. Usually the man is surrounded by a phalanx of men and women who act as his flunkies but inherit some of his charisma/power when dealing with ordinary members of the community. The universal existence of women in this coterie – sometimes to the entire exclusion of men – seems to be unique to Negro social organization. The women are not always sexual consorts of but do adulate the big man. This pattern seems universal from African tribes, chiefdoms and kingdoms through the local religious leaders that are ubiquitous in the USA, Caribbean, and the Guyannas and Brazil.

I’ve decided that this must have something to do with Negro psychology. When better than 80% of a population have below USA average IQs, levels of self-control, linternal discount rates, and time horizons; and an apparently high innate propensity towards violence it makes sense to have things run by one of the most intelligent members of the community. And it makes further sense that this big man would exploit his position to the maximum possible extent. For Negroes this form of organization may be a feature not a bug. One more reason why it seems to me impossible to integrate Whites and Negroes into one common socio-political system that will satisfy the needs of the majorities of each race.

When Europeans Ruled The World

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* Setting aside morality, and looking only at biology, if one wants to talk about the dominance of the Europoid race there’s really only one way to do it: breed like rabbits and then migrate and colonize the rest of the planet.

The alternative scenario, putting up a wall to keep the non-Europoids out, isn’t going to work. It didn’t work for Troy, it didn’t work for the Chinese, it didn’t work for Rome, and it isn’t going to work the US or for Israel in the long term.

Again, if one’s main interest is Europoid dominance, then the period from about 1600 to 1900 was the apex. It’s all downhill from here.

Reasons: #1 – Out of sheer altruism, the Europoids raised the standard of living and eradicated the diseases among the non-Europoids allowing them to not only flourish, but explode demographically. #2 – After the German Nazis hatched a plan to colonize among Europoids, more or less the same way Europoids had colonized the rest of the planet, it was decided that Europoids no longer had the right to colonize the rest of the planet. That settled that. #3 – Science and culture finally came up with a way to separate the sex drive from reproduction, which engendered declining Europoid birth rates on the one hand and a desperately decadent and over-sexualized culture on the other hand.

So the Europoids have lost the battle of colonization, manifest destiny, reproduction, cultural health, virtue, and now demographics. It was nice while it lasted.

* Why do we assume that the Mexicans that are already here want lots of their compadres to join them? Obviously, it’s what their political leaders want because it means more power for them, but it’s not in the interests of the average José. He came here to get away from Mexico; why would he want to have Mexico recreated here?

Furthermore, to assume that Mexican-Americans support illegal immigration is to assume that they are bad citizens who have contempt for American law. I think they should be challenged to demonstrate that they are good citizens by supporting the laws of their adopted country. This obsequious seeking of approval from Hispanics shows a lack of respect for them and for ourselves. I think Trump’s approach actually treats Mexicans less condescendingly, and I heard yesterday that he was polling better among Hispanics than Jeb Bush–34% as opposed to 31%. I believe they admire his straight talk and cojones.

Trump once told Esquire, “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” That’s the kind of winning attitude they like in a leader south of the border.

* It’s just like I told my wife when I found out our house had ants—I said, “Honey, throw out your birth control. We’re about to have a few million more kids. Sheer numerical strength is the only way we can defeat this menace.”

And I was right, for the same reason that a town with 100 stray dogs would have to hire 101 dog-catchers to deal with the problem. Whites will never dominate culture, dictate mores, and form civilizations unless there are more of them.

* Europeans historically kept Persians and Muslims from over running all of Europe by killing great lots of them in battles of annihilation both were poorly culturally equipped to fight. Lepanto, Tours, Salamis, Platea come to mind.

In the end I expect that pattern to repeat. A group of men linked with many semi autonomous killer drones of some type vs. African hordes with AK 47s?

Technology beats manpower and the ultimate killer is the nuke. Or dna oriented bio weapon. Id rather nukes. Less dangerous. When it comes to killing, from Spartans to Spec Ops, Europeans bar none are champs. Yes Israel will have to kill lots and lots to keep from being over run. I expect that in the end to be no problem. Ugly reality is that inhibitions about killing are rapidly discarded for survival.

* The currency thing is no joke. Migrants often migrate just to make more money than friends and family, and they need to brag about it. So exchange rates are very important. A strong pound means your salary is better than cousin Shawandee, or at least it sounds like it.

I met plenty of Chinese doing miserable jobs for peanuts in Europe, and whenever I asked them why they bothered when China wasn’t that bad, they said “but here I earn Euros, not yuan. The yuan is weak”. These seemed like a completely irrational thing to care about, but bragging rights are no joke.

* Well, if you have ants, you can call the exterminator. If you have too many dogs, you get an animal control officer to bait them, trap them, and then take them to a shelter where they are discreetly killed. That’s not going to happen with human beings, at least, I don’t want to revisit the worst the 20th Century had to offer.

Whites dominate culture. What culture? Most of our durable culture is already old. Or do you think Ta Nehisi Coates is going to be in the 22nd Century Great Books, somewhere between Dante and Goethe?

Whites dictate mores. What mores? We have no mores.

You can go Ancient World and talk about putting up a wall to keep the barbarians out. It didn’t work then, it won’t work now. I certainly am not thrilled at the decline of people who look like me. But there it is.

I prefaced my remarks by saying I would set aside morality. But in reality, as a moral being, I have to accept what’s going to happen. The world and the future belongs to the children, and the huge majority of those children will be non-white.

Myself, I have no illusions about humans, which is partly why I turn to religion. So I expect that what in fact will happen is that when sufficient immigration — legal or illegal — creates diminished returns, you can expect the rise of demagoguery, riots, and maybe even war.

* Countries where the men still dominate the women don’t face the same existential issues of fertility and border control. DUH.

Ladies loved Cecil the Lion!!! His masculinity and dominance elevated him to regal status in the feminine mind.

Watch Trump (or somebody like Trump) win the woman vote in 2016.

* Man it’s amazing how these totally evil, racist, white supremacist, imperialist, genocidal, fascist and totalitarian Anglo-Saxon nations keep attracting so many non-whites, blacks especially.

All the proof you need that white Anglo-Saxons are the greatest evil in the universe, really.

* Migrants of color who flee exclusively to historically white nations are outing themselves as white supremacists. In their twisted, racist minds, only historically white nations offer a first-class standard of living. They always choose the white candidate (America, Britain, Sweden) over the equally qualified candidate of color (Ghana, Congo, Mexico).

Do we really want legions of white supremacists with their sickening intolerance goose-stepping all over America and other historically white nations? Keep the racists out!

* It makes sense for Africans to go to the UK because the UK probably has the least discrimination against blacks of any country in Europe. Most white Europeans are still fairly uncomfortable around blacks, but in the UK black immigrants and white lower class English people seem to actually be melding into a comfortable arrangement.

* One of the main reasons the more exotic megafauna (e.g., pachyderms) are dying out is that their reproduction and society cannot match the fecundity of wildebeests, etc. Probably the same for all genera.

However, the difference is that homo sapiens is supposed to be able to engage in intentioned goal-oriented conduct. Apparently not.

So, in ten thousand years, the world will be completely populated by white tail deer and cockroaches. And then they’ll hit the top of their sigmoid curve and collapse. And then we start all over again.

* Europe, the U.K. and the U.S. need some “profiles in courage” to stand up and announce, in effect, that “the Emperor isn’t wearing any clothes.” They’d be committing suicide–on multiple levels–of course, but they’d be doing something to preserve Western Civilization for their descendants.

“Gee, Jeff, why don’t you ‘walk the walk’ and be one of those ‘profiles in courage?’”

Don’t know what to tell you. Besides the fact that I’m not in a position of any power or prominence, and that I’d be dismissed as a racist crackpot, at the age of 56 I’m out of “courage” and am just in survival-mode trying to make it to retirement – while watching the Titanic sink.

* All of this is probably right, and although you keyboard worriers may not be able to mount an effective resistance to it, the whole history of it is being chronicled right here in the comments section of iSteve.

Someone should really take the time to cut and paste all of the best comments here into a Word document so that a book can be written to posterity and that those few of our descendents who survive can read it with same level of interest as we do here today all the details about how everything was lost. For those people the history contained in the iSteve Chronicles will be likened unto the modern Jew’s remembrance of the holocaust.

Never again!

So I was invited to a Shabbos lunch and invited to bring a couple of friends, which made me confront the fact that I have no friends. So I show up to the lunch with low status and even the Mexican girl turned up her nose at me, all because I have the charisma, credit score and work ethic of a black man.
