Trump and Brexit have been disasters for the white race.

When he was elected, it looked as if Trump was the “great white hope” standing up for white people against the assault of blacks and immigrants.  He declared there were good people on both sides of the Charlottesville incident; he was going to build a wall to keep illegal immigrants out.  Now, particularly following his incitement of the mob that invaded the Capitol, he has become an embarrassment to white people.  

I was pleased when Trump said that there were “very fine people on both sides” of the fracas in Charlottesville over the removal of Confederate statues.  I don’t know if there were very fine people who participated in the fights, but there were very fine people who opposed the removal of the Confederate statues as those in the fights did. 

The status quo in Charlottesville included the presence of Confederate statues, since Virginia had been a member state of the Confederacy and many Virginians had died bravely fighting for Virginia’s right to self-determination.  If the Confederacy had won the war, would slavery still have existed there in 1900?  We will never know, but it probably would not have.  World opinion was turning strongly against slavery, and a separate Confederacy would probably not have been able to stand up against pressure from the rest of the world, including the separate, northern United States.  One result might have been the end of slavery, the collapse of the Confederate economy, and an eventual reuniting of the North and the South. 

There was much less animosity between the North and the South in the years following the Civil War than there is now.  Veterans of the war tended not to hold grudges, much like US veterans often showed no animosity toward their former enemies in Germany, Japan, or Vietnam after those wars.   Today the political differences are more between the coastal elites and the center of the country, or perhaps urban versus rural.  The ongoing dispute about the existence of the electoral college is evidence of this remaining tension. 

The coastal elites dominate virtually all types of media, except for social media.  It’s hard to know whether Jewish TV media luminaries or star writers at the New York Times or the Atlantic magazine, hate Southerners so much because they are Jews, carrying 4,000 years of race-related baggage, or because they went to bastions of intellectual snobbery like Harvard, Yale or Stanford.  In any case, unhappy Southerners have tended to turn to social media for information and to express their unhappiness.  Social media are increasingly discredited by the mainstream media, in part properly, because of its fake news, but also unfairly.  The elites characterize social media as evil and illegitimate because it is the way for ordinary people to express ideas opposing the mainstream media consensus.  We see the “free press” arguing against press freedom. 

 If there is a stereotype of “dumb Southern Conservative,” Trump has reinforced that image.  Instead of being an example of a kind Southern gentleman, he has been a stupid, impolite, arrogant, immoral, vulgar white man -- trailer park trash -- even if he lives in elegant residences.  By his misbehavior he has sullied the image of all white men. 

I am afraid that something similar is happening in Britain because of Brexit.  Brexit started because ethnic Brits were unhappy with all of the non-Brits who were coming to Britain because of the provisions of the EU.  Britain, along with Germany, was one of the most prosperous, pleasant countries in the EU, thus attracting many immigrants from other EU countries, as well as from non-EU countries.  Many Brits supported Brexit because they did not want immigrants to change the country in what they thought was a worse direction.  The result, however, will be an isolated Britain.  It is almost as if the American Confederacy had succeeded in seceding from the United States.  Britain has seceded from the EU, probably to the detriment of its economy, and its cultural and intellectual life. It will be poorer in multiple ways.  The Anglo race, which was the core of the creators of the American republic, will be weaker.  Britain is no longer an imperial power with colonies to support it, and is no longer part of the EU, the second or third most powerful bloc in the world. 

America is becoming an increasingly less Anglo country, increasingly more African and Hispanic.  Trump was supposed to stop this transformation, but instead has probably strengthened it.  He has discredited the white race.  In the Biden administration, Biden is one of the few white men; the other leaders will be non-white, many female, starting with Kamala Harris.  In this group, I don’t count Jews as “white,” because they often don’t consider themselves as white.  When Jews are born, one of the first things that is done to them is circumcision, to mark them forever as Jews, not some other race, even if in other ways they resemble the white race.  Circumcision marks the members of the Hebrew tribe, and separates them from non-members.  Thus, I don’t count the many Jews in the Biden administration as “white” or Anglo.  The Biden administration will be emblematic of the new, diverse America. 

So, I have to ask, what do these new, diverse leaders bring to the table.  With Jews, it is pretty obvious.  They have been very successful in almost every area except athletics.  Blacks, on the other hand, have not been very successful in any area other than athletics.  Both Jews and blacks have been successful in the entertainment industry.  Asians, like whites have been pretty successful in governing, and remaining somewhat competitive if not leaders in other areas.  Asians and Jews clearly beat out the other groups intellectually.  Blacks have long been strong in religion, which has supported them in the trials they have faced over the years, but religion is becoming less and less important in American life. 

Trump ended up appealing to the worst qualities of white people, and bringing out some of their worst qualities, most recently illustrated in the assault on the US Capitol, one of the best institutions created by the white “founding fathers,” now sullied by Trump and his white followers. 

We may be witnessing the decline of the white race.  It had a good run.  I think on the whole colonialism was a good thing, bringing millions, maybe billions, of people into the developed world, although huge discrepancies still remain between the colonizers and the former colonies.  World Wars I and II were pretty big blots on white history, but so far wars seem to be part of the human condition, not just for whites.  One of the World War II aggressors was Asian.  I would say the Roman Empire was also a “white” period, and again one with a pretty impressive history.  China, India, Persia, Egypt, and some other ancient civilizations have similarly long, impressive histories, while Africa has none.  Maybe this is Africa’s time to shine, but so far it doesn’t look like it.  There doesn’t seem to be much of a chance for American Indians to make a comeback.  Perhaps the time has come for whites to pay a price for what they did to the American Indians and black slaves.  If so, will it be good for America?  I don’t think so, but as a white man, I may be biased.  The bigger question is, “Will the world be a better place?”  Will the standard of living continue to rise for all men?  Will political and intellectual freedom continue to spread to all men? 

In the great scheme of things, I think white people have been more generous than most in tolerating and working with other races.  In America it was white men who freed the slaves; the slaves did not free themselves.  A white Southerner, Lyndon Johnson, is probably the person most responsible for whatever civil rights are enjoyed by blacks today.  Trump had an opportunity to regularize the rapid changes that were occurring in America when he was elected, but he failed.  It’s not enough to be white.  You have to be white and a good person.  Trump was not a good person.  Robert E. Lee was white and a good person, a Southern gentleman.  Woodrow Wilson gets no credit for trying (and failing) to bring a just peace to the end of World War I that might have spared the lives of six million Jews and ten million Russians in World War II. 

It looks like something new is coming. Trump will be seen as something of an unpleasant coda to 250 years of American history.  Britain and the US have both recoiled at what they think may be coming. Their trying to turn back may end up being more harmful that trying to control the change. 

President-elect Biden is saying all the right things, except (for me) about Charlottesville.  Every time he mentions Charlottesville I recoil.  For me Charlottesville meant tearing down American history in a city synonymous with American history as the home of Thomas Jefferson.  But we tried going in the other direction under Trump, and it didn’t work.  Perhaps Biden will do better.  If not, we may find ourselves on the brink of another Civil War, basically over the same issue, the role of non-whites, blacks and immigrants, in American society. 

 

American Flag Was Symbol of Rioters

 Rioters clash with police trying to enter Capitol building through the front doors - 6 January 2021

There were a lot more American flags at the Capitol riot than Confederate flags.  Do liberals believe that the American flag is a symbol of hatred like the much less displayed Confederate flag.? Confederate flags were vastly outnumbered by American flags as the emblem of the rioters.  Will Nancy Pelosi  burn her American flags because they are symbols of hatred?

High School Social Media and Free Speech

I thought these two New York Times articles were about the same incident. They are similar but not identical.  The first one, “A Racial Slur, a Viral Video, and a Reconing,” was about a high school cheerleader who used the N-word on social media referring to a classmate when she was 15.  The second story, “A Cheerleader’s Vulgar Message Prompts a First Amendment Showdown,” was about a ninth grade girl who failed to make the cheerleading squad and expressed her dissatisfaction with the school in four letter words on Snapchat. 

Since both of these stories seem to involve pretty cheerleaders, they might the basis for an episode of “Mean Girls.”  Both illustrate the increasing coarseness of conversation on social media, and often in person, in the United States.  But beyond the question of what is polite and decent is the question of what is legal?  The N-word has been part of the English language for hundreds of years, as have four-letter words.  Whatever happened to the old adage that “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”  Before social media, these words and actions would have evaporated into thin air.  Today they are preserved forever. 

Does the fact that are not preserved in black and white mean that they are legally different from the same sentiments expressed verbally?  If Facebook has liability protection under section 230, why don’t these cheerleaders? 

In the first case, the thought-police who run the University of Tennessee thought it was more important to recruit black athletes than white cheerleaders, and thus denied admission to the cheerleader in the first story in order to help them recruit black football and basketball players. 

The family in the first case involving the University of Tennessee probably doesn’t have the millions of dollars necessary to pursue a case to the Supreme Court, or maybe they would just like to go about their lives without fighting the though-police at every turn.  They may not want to repay their accuser, Jimmy Gilligan, with the unbelievable hatred and vindictiveness he displayed in getting the girl refused admission to the University of Tennessee. 

To me, these are not hard cases for the Supreme Court, I think they should come down on the side of free speech except in the oft-cited example of crying “Fire!” in a crowded theater.  Actions that may follow disliked words are another matter, but the words should be protected.

The Africanization of America

Joe Biden’s election marked the highwater point in the Africanization of America.  Contrary to the misleading reports by the liberal media, Biden won the election in the black inner cities of Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee, America's "Heart of Darkness."  Liberal propagandists like Chuck Todd and Nate Silver claim that Biden was elected by suburban, white women.  If that were the case, why was Trump leading in the early vote counts?  It wasn’t until the slowly counted, mail-in, black vote from the inner cities started coming in that Biden moved into the lead. 

There is no indication that this black vote was illegal.  The Democrats figured out that 90% of Negroes vote Democratic; so, turning out the black vote was the way to win the election.  Blacks vote Democratic because so many of them depend on government welfare, and the Democrats are the most generous in awarding those benefits. 

Although there is no indication that the inner-city vote was illegal, it was largely African-American, and if you look at elections in Africa, very few of them are fair.  Although he made life better for blacks living in South Africa, Nelson Mandela made South Africa more corrupt than it was under the apartheid governments.  South Africa, Kenya, and Nigeria are among the most successful African states, in large part because of the relatively benign colonization by the British.  The rest of Africa is a snake pit of corruption, dishonesty, and even genocide in the Congo and Rwanda.  American blacks have had 400 years to break out of that African stereotype, but I fear that they may not have completely acculturated even after 400 years. 

Various people, like Christopher Krebs at CISA, and Brad Raffensperger the Georgia Secretary of State, have said that this election was indisputably fair and honest.  However Krebs was only in charge of cyber protection for the election; his remit did not include old fashioned corruption, like that carried out by the Mayor Daley machine in Chicago for years, paying off voters with patronage, etc.  Raffensperger may be perfectly honest, but he was in charge of carrying out a fair election; would we expect him to say he failed at his job? 

In any case, the real secret to Biden’s victory was turning out the black vote, and there is no law against that.  Trump is right that the mail-in vote, which facilitated a large black vote, worked against him in the election, but it was legal.  I don’t see a legal challenge to Biden’s election, but I see it as a landmark in America’s transition from being a predominately white country to one where minorities are in the majority, with all the implications that has for government policy. 

Biden is saying all the right things about uniting the country, and his calmness, moderation and decency are a welcome change from Trump, but they portend a different future for this country.  This trend is also taking place in Europe, although more slowly, and how that evolves may affect our relationship with Europe in the future.  America was a European country with a special bond to Europe and especially to Great Britain.  Biden says he wants to restore that relationship, but he may represent the old America, and may find it difficult to get the new America to go along with him.

Biden’s Racist Election

Biden won in a racist election.  This is not to say that the election was illegal, but he won by appealing to racism.  He owes his nomination to a black man, Congressman James Cliburn of South Carolina. He chose a black Asian woman as his vice president.  He won the election the election by winning huge votes in large cities that are predominately black: Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit, Milwaukee.  Blacks to do not split their vote.  They vote on one issue: race.  They vote as if they still lived on a plantation.  They vote against “the [white] man” and for free government money, in the form of welfare, reparations, affirmative action, or whatever form it might take.  Biden won by appealing to base instincts, just not the same ones Trump appealed to. 

The media makes the election sound like it was perfect. In fact, ballot boxes were not stuffed; the Russians and Chinese did not hack voting machines or sway the electorate through Facebook or Twitter.  But it was nasty and not just on Trump’s side.  The Democrats were surprised the election was so close because they have such a racist outlook.  They assumed that anyone with dark skin would vote for them.  They did not understand the Hispanics and Asians do not vote on the basis of race hatred like blacks do.  Hispanics and Asians who have been successful and acculturated to American life tend to vote on economic and other issues like whites do.  The coastal elites who control the Democratic Party have absorbed the black prejudices because the blacks have long been influential in the Democratic Party, the Hispanics and Asians are relatively new and the Democratic strategy did not account for them correctly.  The black-based strategy worked, but not that well.  The fact that the polls and the liberal media were so far off base illustrated the degree of cooperation between them and the coastal elites, since they shared the same misunderstanding.  Chuck Todd, Wolf Blitzer and company are still prisoners of Hillary-Yale-Harvard think, which believes dark skinned people are inferior and need help, although they would never say so out loud.

Biden Election

 

Joe Biden is saying all the right things since the election.  Unlike Trump, he has tried to soothe the national psyche by calling for calm and patience.  His decency is a welcome change from Trump’s vulgarity.  I believe he did win the election and should be inaugurated as the next President of the US. 

That said, however, this was not a good election.  The polls all predicted a “blue wave” and an easy election for Biden.  That did not happen.  Boden barely squeaked by.  The way the media hyped the incorrect polls indicates there was something rotten behind the media support for Biden.  The cities which put him over the top were all cities with large black populations known for political corruption.  There may not have been any, but the appearance is bad.  Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit, and Milwaukee were the key cities where the black vote put him over the top. 

The black votes in these black cities were clearly racist.  While whites and Asians vote on a number of issues – economics, education, taxes, social issues, etc. – blacks vote on only one issue – race.  As a result, the black vote is monolithic.  Something like 90% off all blacks vote Democratic.  They don’t care if the schools are good, only if they are integrated.  They don’t care about the economy as long as they get their welfare. 

I’m not sure anything illegal happened to sway the election but it looks bad.  The black vote in the black cities was the last to come in.  Courts in those states ruled that voting on election day was too complicated and that blacks couldn’t manage it; they needed extra time to vote.  So, they counted ballots that arrived long after election day, although in theory they were turned in by election day.  In fact, because of all the special provisions, who knows exactly what happened?  The courts made it easier to commit voter fraud, whether fraud was actually committed is another question. 

The 2000 election showed that all this moralizing about every vote should count is ridiculous.  Most votes are counted, and some votes may be counted several times, but the election gives a general indication of what the voters want, and as long as the election is not too close, the voters get what they actually voted for.  If the vote is really close in places where there are more than a few thousand votes, it would be just a fair and accurate to flip a coin to choose the winner.  George W. Bush was not elected by the American people, he was chosen by the Supreme Court.  Al Gore did the right thing and conceded because he was an American patriot who ended the election nightmare, not because he was actually defeated at the polls.  Who knew that Gore was ceding to a man who would fail to protect America from foreign invasion and start a war that has lasted 20 years with not discernable benefit to the US. 

Hopefully, Joe Biden will be a better President than George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump were.

Blog – Biden and the Proud Boys

I am as tired of hearing about Charlottesville and white supremacy as I am of hearing about the Holocaust. 

I had never heard of the Proud Boys until Biden brought them up in his debate with Trump.  When I looked them up on the Internet, almost all of the derogatory information came from the Anti-Defamation League or the Southern Poverty Law Center, neither of which is a trustworthy source.  The ADL is basically the Jewish Ku Klux Klan, spreading hatred of various groups who do not fit the Jewish view of the world.  The ADL is a gentile-vilification society, and Jonathan Greenblatt is essentially the Jewish David Duke.  The Southern Poverty Law Center performs very much the same function for blacks, using the media to attack anyone who does not accept the blacks’ view of the world. 

Wikipedia says (at least at this moment) that the Proud Boys’ focus is on the preservation of Western values.  Granted that drinking, marching and sometimes fighting is not a very intellectual way to focus on Western values, but at least that claim undermines the media obsession with their racism.  Intellectually, “cancel culture” is a live issue, illustrated by the Harper’s Magazine letter.  The Democratic Party, led by Joe Biden, stands against Western culture and intellectual freedom.  The Party stands for intellectual freedom as long as it means believing the same things as Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, and the obviously Proud Boys do not.  Schumer and Pelosi are themselves close-minded bigots, who appeal to the Democrats’ KKK, the ADL and the SPLC, to shut their critics down. 

The Jews in the media are working full time before the election to vilify white people.  Joe Biden is a white man, but he is hostage to the Jews, blacks and Hispanics who run the Democratic Party.  Jake Tapper, Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, Wolf Blitzer, Kate Bolduan, Katie Couric, Jeffrey Goldberg, Gloria Borger and their Jewish colleagues spend hours talking about how terrible white supremacy is.  Of course non-Jewish reporters do, too, but they take their lead from the Jewish media, since a large part of the media is owned and controlled by Jews, who are using “white supremacy” as a tool to attack the entire white race. 

If Biden can’t stand up to Donald Trump in a debate, he can’t stand up to the Jews, blacks and Hispanics who control the Democratic Party.  Despite his claim in his debate with Trump, the Party does not belong to him.  He is as beholden to the Jews and blacks of the Party on the “white supremacy” issue as he is to the Progressives on the Green New Deal and government-paid health care for all.
