The critic Northop Frye wrote of Oswald Spengler’s magnum opus, “If The Decline of the West were nothing else, it would still be one of the world’s great Romantic poems.” Much the same could be said of Madison Grant’s Conquest of the Continent, or rather that it is, all at once, a great history and a great poem. The book is exhaustively researched, with some four years of preparatory work, and it announces itself, modestly and scholarly, as “an effort to make an estimate of the various elements, national and racial, existing in the present population of the United States and to trace their arrival and subsequent spread.” At the same time, Conquest is a grand vision of bio-cultural struggle and evolution, in which demography comes alive.
One of the most remarkable turn of events in America’s 2016 election has been the revitalization of the phrase “America First!” America First as a slogan has its origins in the pre-World War II America First Committee which was dedicated to keeping the United States out of that war. It was a slogan that energized many in the hinterlands against what they saw as a useless entanglement over foreign interests many thousands of miles away. Notable supporters of the Committee included future presidents John F. Kennedy and Gerald Ford along with cultural figures like Walt Disney, Frank Lloyd Wright and E.E. Cummings. It even included many leftists independent of communist marching orders like Norman Thomas. And of course, there was its most noted celebrity spokesman, aviator Charles Lindbergh.
Africa is a big place with a lot of history, but is treated as a single entity in modern political discussions. Before going over the charts, consider this:
In 1950, the continent of Africa (including North Africa) had a population of 230 million.
In 2015, that number had increased to 1,166 million (1.166 billion).
This is a quintupling of the population. Is Europe directly responsible for that? Did they pay Africans to overbreed? This, the most important factor in Africa’s standard of living, is simply not mentioned.
Given the record of frosty relations with Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Obama’s parting shot at Israel comes as no surprise. After years of standing up for Israel at the UN Security Council, the US has abstained from a resolution that, among other things, “reaffirms that the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace.” The resolution was framed by the US as intended to salvage the last vestiges of hope for a two-state solution in a situation where, as US UN Ambassador Samantha Power noted in her speech following the vote, there are 590,000 Israelis living on the West Bank. She also noted that Israel’s Netanyahu’s claim to still be pursuing a two-state solution contradicts his stated policy of being the most pro-settlement government in Israel’s history.
Shortly after his inauguration in 2009, President Obama invited Republican leaders in Congress to the White House to discuss their proposals for stimulating the economy. In this gesture of goodwill he failed to mention that House Democrats had already drafted and passed a stimulus bill without consulting them. Every GOP idea had been left out.
Glenn Beck heads towards well-deserved oblivion.
You could argue it didn’t begin with Donald Trump. Or Ron Paul. Or even the Alt-Right. The resurgence of populism and white identity politics began with Glenn Beck.
The first time observers started to see the rising Middle American Revolution was in 2010 at Mr. Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally. An estimated 87,000 overwhelmingly white Americans gathered on the mall, for a purpose no one could really define. Was it a religious revival? A celebration of patriotism? An expression of outrage? Each attendee and speaker had a different answer.
You’d have to have a hard heart indeed not to be mildly moved by the poetic tragedy of Debbie Reynolds dying just a day after her daughter, (((Carrie Fisher))). And just days before the passing of (((Carrie Fisher))), (((George Michael’s))) heart gave out one last time. A few days after Donald Trump was elected (((Leonard Cohen))) passed away prompting (((Jonathon Freedland))) to write in The Guardian ”Trump’s world is too dark – even for Leonard Cohen”. At the beginning of 2016 we lost Starman David Bowie and at the end we lost Star Wars’s Princess Leia, and in-between the western political landscape was under a seemingly relentless populist revolt.
In the liberal mind, then, 2016 has become a by-word for defeat, misery, death and failure:
The first track off doom-metal band Electric Wizard’s album Dopethrone is entitled “Vinum Sabbathi” or “Wine of the Sabbath.” It begins with a quote from Police Chief Dale Griffis, speaking in 1985 episode of ABC’s 20/20 titled “The Devil Worshippers.” He says:
“When you get into one of these groups, there’s only a couple of ways you can get out: one is death, the other is mental institutions…”
The United Nations, the non-binding world parliament of color, has denounced Israel for the 6,000,000th time. Ordinarily this is not news. See the boilerplate below for just how routine this particular resolution (2334) was:
Condemning all measures aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, including, inter alia, the construction and expansion of settlements, transfer of Israeli settlers, confiscation of land, demolition of homes and displacement of Palestinian civilians, in violation of international humanitarian law and relevant resolutions … Reaffirms that the establishment by Israel of settlements… has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace.
Israel continues to colonize the West Bank, the third-worldist voter bloc in the UN musters more than enough support to symbolically condemn Israel because demographics can only be altered in favor of third world peoples, a maelstrom of kvetching ensues, nothing happens, etc.
Cinematic trailers for the next movies are often more revealing than the movie itself for the moral universe of Hollywood. Before the opening spaceship shot of Rogue One, we were treated to a jump-cut sequence of multiracial families and half Negroid kids yelling cheerfully in suburban houses, followed up by a mixed-race man waving a book and repeating “Love, love, love, love, love!” at the top of his lungs in complete tearful hysterics. Of course, it was a Google advert. Advertising what? Google. Google is Love, Google is Life.
Leftists will accuse white men of fueling “rape culture” for sitting with their legs spread too far apart. But they’ve been excusing non-whites for committing actual acts of rape since well before the mass sexual assaults in Germany in 2016. The Cologne attacks on New Years’ Eve didn’t represent the beginning of these trends—they just exposed to the wider public more clearly something that some of us have already been observing for a long time.
In 2010, for example, a liberal activist in Haiti wrote the following:
Two weeks ago, on a Monday morning, I started to write what I thought was a very clever editorial about violence against women in Haiti. The case, I believed, was being overstated by women’s organizations in need of additional resources. Ever committed to preserving the dignity of Black men in a world which constantly stereotypes them as violent savages, I viewed this writing as yet one more opportunity to fight “the man” on behalf of my brothers. That night, before I could finish the piece, I was held on a rooftop in Haiti and raped repeatedly by one of the very men who I had spent the bulk of my life advocating for.
A once-vital Catholic school is now is steep decline.
I am a teacher at a small Catholic school, where I have taught for over 15 years. During that time I have seen a massive demographic shift in the student population. As you might expect, the effects have been mostly—and significantly—negative. This shift closely mirrors the overall trends in our society in terms of its effects on group behavior and identity, and the future of our country.
To reiterate a point that should be clear to the more astute reader, my goal in this series (part 1, part 2) has not been to defend “Pizzagate” as such. My goal has been to defend the people who want to investigate it against specific accusations levied against them by people who think Pizzagate has revealed no intriguing information at all—for a specific reason, which I will be honing in and focusing on much more directly in this closing entry.
Whereas the mainstream critics of Pizzagate would have you believe that the dividing line is between paranoid conspiracy theorist followers of “fake news” and level-headed people who follow trustworthy news sources and rely on cold, hard reason to determine the truth, my goal has been to show that—whatever is or is not happening with Pizzagate itself—this framing of the issue is arrogant, insulting, and the product of extremely narrow tunnel vision.
A fairly recent development in leftist practice has been the creation of “safe spaces” on college campuses. These are usually rooms filled with plush toys, coloring books, soothing music, and cute cat videos, and are ostensibly intended to comfort students triggered by some microaggression inflicted upon them by an agent of the cis-white-hetero-patriarchy. Lampooning these safe spaces and the coddled children curling up in them has become something of a sport among right-leaning folks: the real world, after all, is nowhere near safe, nor should it be.
Author Nikesh Shukla—a fat brown man who appears to sweat a lot—has just been named one of Foreign Policy magazine’s “100 Global Thinkers of 2016.” He won this award for his work focusing on the “unbearable whiteness of publishing.” Ironically, his surname is a word of Sanskrit origin meaning “white.”
In books such as The Good Immigrant, the British citizen complains that British society is unfairly dominated by indigenous Britons.
I think I’ll move to India, bitch about how the Indian publishing industry is stacked in favor of Indians, and then expect to receive grants and awards…or maybe not. Read More »
I was standing in the express line (twelve items or less) at Food Lion, one of the South’s low to mid-tier grocery chains. I prefer Food Lion over Kroger and Whole Foods because it’s genuinely quicker to get in and out when running errands – the bourgeois and intolerable SWPLs and organic-only non-GMO fanatics swarm the two stores and make the experience more than unpleasant. There is a tradeoff for shopping at Food Lion though, you’ll experience a mixed (and colorful) bag of humanity. On one hand, you’ve got your salt of the Earth – country folks, rednecks and blue-collar workers (my kind of people). On the flip side, you’ve got a parade of horrors – lazy dindus, obese mudsharks and low IQ (and usually portly) white trash peasants using the complimentary scooters.
How will Obama be viewed historically? The obvious answer is: in two completely different ways. First, he is now, has been, and will be remembered as one of our greatest, most consequential presidents … by the far left “Mainstream” Media who have uncritically supported him all along. According to a recent CNN broadcast, Obama’s leading accomplishments are “comprehensive healthcare, the rescue of the global economy, the historic deal with Iran to halt that nation’s march towards a nuclear weapon, the global climate change agreements, the appointment of two women to the U.S. Supreme Court, and his moves on social issues such as marriage equality for gay Americans, equal pay legislation, criminal justice reform, and more.”
The second answer is not so generous.
Damn! I hate these terrorist attacks that have now become the “new normal.” I hate them for the usual reasons—the horror and tragedy of perfectly innocent people, especially children, being mowed down at random—but I also hate them for more unorthodox reasons, because I am a White Inferiorist.
What exactly does that mean? Well, if you’re in the Alt-Right and somebody who isn’t knows it, there is a good chance they will call you a “White Supremacist” among other things.
History is full of uncanny patterns. Either we’ve learned nothing as a species or things are repeating themselves. Time is cyclical or man is forgetful. Maybe there is a “natural law” at work or something like that. Or maybe not. Nailing these down with precision is honestly not all that important though. Ideas have consequences sure, but ideas also have antecedents. They are chained together over the course of civilizations. And one of the most eternal recurrences is that of precarious elites importing human resources from other tribes than their own.
A black kid from an upper-middle income family and school will get more preferential admissions treatment than this girl will.
What an Orwellian euphemism, “affirmative action”.
1997 SAT Data
In 1997, Stephen Epinshade found that being black is worth 230 points on the SAT, being hispanic is worth 185 points, being asian costs you 50 points, and being a legacy is worth 160 points when applying to a university.
Urbanization is a massive problem.
The major cities of America: New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago are bastions of Cultural Marxism. From here is where the urban elite make plans to dictate to the rest of America, and scheme on how to shape the nation in their image.
What image is that?
