And again

rot

 

I am troubled by the latest attack in Manchester, England, and sickened that this cycle goes on, needlessly. I do feel deeply for the families of the victims, and my prayers are for them.

However I am not sharing the above ‘meme’ with the motive of inspiring more teary ‘candlelight vigils’ and statements of unity (“we stand with Muslims”, as the millennials like to say). There have been far too many of those and to what avail?

And as I’ve asked, rhetorically of course, to what ‘god’, exactly, are the usual soppy prayers being offered up? More importantly, to what ‘god’ are the victims being offered up? Because they are, seemingly, being offered up by the powers-that-be, for what? An appeasement? An offering to whatever evil gods of whatever far-off-lands may require the sacrifice of innocents?

To give some of the ‘bleeding-heart’ types their due (if they have that right; I am not sure they have), they may be well-intentioned in their feeble, wet-dishrag way, with their prayers and their ‘standing together’ and their teary appeals. But can they really believe that the true God, the God of the Bible, accounts the perpetrators of these atrocities as just as much ‘his children’ as those who worship him in spirit and in truth? Are murderers and victims all equal in God’s eyes? Does God really love them all the same? Is God really morally neutral? If this is the ‘god’ these bleeding-hearts invoke then they are worshipping some kind of heathen deity who does not differentiate or judge morally. Such a ‘god’ is deaf and blind and offers no comfort or consolation. Above all, such a ‘god’ as these post-Christians pray to does not offer justice. As such, he/she is not a ‘god’ at all. So prayers are of no avail. It is no wonder help is not forthcoming to the nations who have decided to bow down to this god-who-is-no-god.

And to some extent, our nation is prey to this same post-Christian delusion that plagues most of Europe, as well as Australia and New Zealand and Canada.

On a simply human level, why do the nations who are the targets of these attacks not finally get angry that their kinsmen are being killed, picked off randomly, in incidents like this? If someone was picking off their family members like this, would people still react with resignation and tears and hand-wringing, rather than reacting with righteous anger and some attempt at healthy self-defense? There must be some deep mind-conditioning going on to cause this passivity and resignation.

One final note: I am waiting to see the first allegation of a ‘false flag’, and the first claim that there are ‘crisis actors’ and staged scenes to fool us into believing a real attack happened.

If this is true, if the powers-that-be are resorting to having to stage fake terror attacks, then the Moslems are falling down on the job; they aren’t earning their keep in our countries, not doing what they were brought here for.

Reconstruction, part 3

Africanization_The New Dictionary of Americanisms1902

In my perusals of the many old books on Archive.org, I came across a book called The New Dictionary of Americanisms, published in 1902. The above is from that book. It’s interesting that there was a term coined back during the ‘Reconstruction’ era, just after the War for Southern Independence, describing the South’s situation of being “under the control and domination” of the black race.  People saw it for what it was then; why do so few see it now?

Few people today, White or black, seem to know that this was the state of things after the War Between the States. The whole point of the ‘Reconstruction’ regime was to place the White citizens of the South in an inferior and degraded condition, and to punish the White Southerners for attempting to go their own way. The freedmen were loosed on the disarmed and disenfranchised White folk, and the latter were at the mercy of this unholy coalition of  the Northern exploiters, or ‘carpetbaggers’, traitorous Southern ‘Scallywags’ — and black freedmen.

Now we seem to be in a continuation of Reconstruction, and this same sort of unholy coalition is attempting to deliver a coup de grace to the South, its history, heritage, and culture — and to fully subjugate the traditionally-minded Southern White folk, or at least the remnant thereof. I am glad to see, though, that some are showing signs of resistance to this all-out assault on the South that is now under way.

Facing the reality of what is happening is a necessary part of mounting a defense. As long as some Southron folk are in denial about it, or oblivious to it, then we will continue to be under the domination of those who despise us and our ancestors.

A propos of the New Orleans vandalism

On Confederate soldiers_from God's War by Wilson Vance

The above is a quote from Wilson Vance, in the book God’s War.

It is ironic how quickly our society descended from a kind of burying the hatchet between North and South, to absolute hatred and intolerance of anything to do with the Confederacy. The younger folk out there may not believe this, but before the Civil Rights Revolution (or would coup be a better word?) the great men of the Confederacy were not vilified but mentioned favorably in school textbooks used in the North, and the official position was to treat the Confederate dead as honored fallen, much as were the Northern soldiers. However since the malicious talebearing of certain ‘civil rights’ organizations since the 1980s, the left (and much of the ignorant political ‘center’ in this country, if such a segment even exists) have become as people possessed. I say ‘possessed’ is not too strong a word; it is not hyperbole by any means, judging by the foaming-at-the-mouth attitudes and behavior of the anti-Southern left. They are possessed (I would say truly, in a Biblical sense) by malice and destructiveness when it comes to all the symbols and heroes of the Confederacy. Like their ‘daddy’ and exemplar, Satan, they never rest, and never will stop in their fury and vandalism until every last Confederate symbol and monument is pulled down, trampled on, spat on, burnt, or crushed. Next to be the target of their destructiveness will be the few people who even attempt, peaceably, to oppose their ugly rampages.

Wilson Vance was right when he said the graves and monuments of the Confederate fallen should be guarded, cared for, and honored. Instead mobs of ignoramuses and historical illiterates are committing their acts of cultural vandalism. Those who stand by and watch, without feeling so much as a twinge of outrage, are just as bad as the ones wreaking the destruction. Not to take a stand is itself taking a stand. There won’t be any neutrals in the conflict that is seemingly brewing.

 

Another ‘Earth Day’ come and gone

EarthDay1990.jpg

Earth Day, 1990, as described by a contemporary news article. Actually I was there that day, in 1990, in Central Park. (Yes, I’ve admitted I was ‘liberal’ in the past, in my misguided younger days.) The article above sums up the hypocrisy of most ‘progressives’, in that it’s always ‘do as I say, not as I do.’ They give themselves a pass on ‘disrespecting Mother Earth’ by scattering literally tons of litter and garbage as they bemoan ‘harming’ the planet by our throwaway culture.

Earth Day in 2017 apparently featured their ‘March for Science’, which I understand was an occasion to focus on ‘climate change denialists’, and to proselytize for their ‘Climate Apocalypse Cult’, as someone in the dissident-right  blogosphere (accurately) calls it.

But speaking of denialists, where is the progressives’ devotion to holy Science when people like Nobel-winning scientist James Watson say things they don’t like? When it comes to matters of HBD and race/ethnicity, ‘progressives’ simply silence those who speak honestly about it. They like to pick and choose which ‘Science Truths’ they accept and which they will acknowledge.

Hypocrisy and double standards are always the order of the day for the left.

One little Earth Day factoid: one of the co-founders of Earth Day was (((Ira Einhorn.))) Some of you may remember him as the radical who killed his unfortunate girlfriend, whose body was found in a closet in Einhorn’s Philadelphia apartment. The news stories referred to his ‘composting’ her body. Maybe he was thus showing his respect for sound environmental principles. But true to form, the left denies that Einhorn was one of the founders of their sacred Earth Day. Don’t like a fact? Just “deny, deny, deny,” as Bill Clinton famously advised those caught in some wrongdoing.

Oh — and just for the record, (((Einhorn))) was not a ‘boomer’; he was born in 1940, so he was part of that ‘Silent Generation’ which produced people like (((Abbie Hoffman))), Tom Hayden, and many other lefty icons.

Easter being phased out?

Is Easter the next Christian holiday to be suppressed? CBN News reports that the major candy makers have taken the word ‘Easter’ off the packaging of the traditional Easter candies.

“Hershey’s, M&M’s, Lindor, Russell Stover, Dove, Rolo, and Twix have all produced Easter themed candy without mentioning the word on the front of their candy, according to a press release from the Liberty Counsel.

[…]”Earlier this month, Cadbury dropped the word “Easter” from the advertising of its annual “Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt”  in England.  As CBN News reported, the new “Cadbury’s Great British Egg Hunt” caused an uproar in the church and the government.”

Some Christians will say this is fine with them because Easter is really a ‘pagan’ holiday, or at least the secular aspects of it, such as Easter bunnies, eggs, and baby chicks are pagan fertility symbols. The same people would probably say they don’t believe in Christmas trees, Santa Claus, and all the modern trappings of Christmas. And truth be told, all these things are not Christian in any real sense, though they have traditionally been part of our celebrations.

Personally I am on the fence about this; I can see the viewpoint of those who say Christians should keep to the religious symbols and avoid the secular and pagan aspects. However I still object to the obvious ‘war’ on Christian holidays and the symbols thereof, even if some of our traditions date to the pre-Christian generations of our European ancestors. To let the secularists and the anti-Christians do this without any opposition or objections is capitulating to their agenda.

And the companies who are purging the name ‘Easter’ as well as other Christian holidays from their products and advertising should be made to feel the pain of losing their Christian customers’ business.  However so far it seems that most boycotts by Christians have proven somewhat ineffectual overall; the Christian faith is still losing out to corporate anti-Christian policies.

This kind of incident is also symptomatic of the corporate world’s disregard for their customers and their indifference to their customers’ satisfaction and goodwill. How many have noticed that most consumer products and services have declined markedly in quality?  I know I’m not the only one who perceives this change. Once upon a time (long ago), businesses supposedly believed in the old adage ‘the customer is always right.’ I doubt the businessmen really believed that, but reputable businesses tried to build good relationships with their clients and customers. Nowadays, if you are unhappy with a product or a service, you can complain, but complaints, no matter how politely and articulately they are made, are usually met with indifference at best, and with surly defiance at worst. Businesses generally let it be known that they are ‘sorry’ you are not happy, but that they ‘feel’ that their products and services are adequate, and if you believe otherwise, you are free to do business elsewhere.  ‘This is what we offer; take it or leave it. We’re satisfied that we are doing a good job” is the implicit message.

Most products, American-made or foreign-made, are shoddier, flimsier, less durable, and often uglier than those made a few decades ago. Foods are of much poorer quality, and I’ve heard this from many people.

There is a general breakdown of trust between businesses and their customers. Apathy if not downright hostility is all too common. This business of eliminating Christian symbols and names from products made purposely for a Christian market makes no sense whatsoever. But it’s to be expected, sad to say, in a society in which the traditional common culture and shared customs have almost disappeared.

 

“Signed, White America”

Another hate hoax, this one with a slight twist.

“CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WLOS) – Police arrested a man who is accused of arson, ethnic intimidation, and committing a hate crime at Central Market in Charlotte on Thursday.

Curtis Dwight Flournoy, 32, is charged with burning a building of trade, malicious damage by use of an incendiary material, felony breaking and entering, ethnic intimidation, and anonymous or threatening letters.

Police searched for the man seen in surveillance video leaving a racist note, breaking a window at the business, and then setting a fire.”

When I read this, and saw the name of the accused, Flournoy, I jumped to the conclusion that the man charged was of Huguenot French ancestry; there are a number of people with names that are known as Huguenot names in that part of the South. My conclusion was wrong, as you can see by the photo of the accused.

In any case, it’s a relief to see that this ‘hate crime’ was likely not done by a White, but note this part of the story: the threatening note concluded with the signature “Signed, White America.”

Even without a signature like that, the media always, always assume that it is some White ‘hater’, when all too often the ‘hate crime’ turns out to be a ‘hate hoax.’ This fact is almost always swept under the rug by the mendacious media; when the crime is found to be a hoax, (usually by the person claiming to be the ‘victim’) they carefully bury that story on the back page somewhere.

In this case, it was not the victim who was the hoaxer, but Flournoy, pretending he represented ‘White America.’

But ultimately that’s the case with most of these kinds of hoaxes; the purported victim usually fakes the ‘hate crime’ with scrawled threats, ‘symbols of hate’ (so-called), usually a noose or a swastika or other such incendiary symbol. The point of claiming to have been victimized by some anonymous ‘hater’ or ‘nazi’ or [something]-phobe is not just to draw attention as we often assume, but to further the all-important ‘narrative’. As actual ‘hate crimes’ by White ‘bigots’ are pretty rare, once we subtract the many fakes, we see why it’s necessary, if you must have a ‘hate crime’, to act it out oneself. Pretty pathetic. Just doing the ‘hate crimes’ White bigots won’t do. If you want something done right, gotta do it yourself, as they saying goes.

In this case, the signature reveals the motive was not necessarily as much for the sake of threatening or driving out the Bhutanese man, but to keep the ‘White hater’ narrative alive. I would say that the perpetrator was targeting ‘White America’ more than he was this store owner. Just my opinion.

 

‘Austria’s richest man’ vs. PC

It seems that ‘Austria’s richest man’ has spoken out, in an interview with Kleine Zeitung,  against mass immigration to Europe and has denounced Political Correctness. According to Breitbart London:

“In the interview, Mateschitz took a stand against the “destabilisation of Europe”, which he said threatens the “uniqueness of [the continent’s] diversity and individuality with its different cultures and languages”.

“I hope I’m not the only one who’s worried that one of the highest officials in Brussels said that countries which aren’t multicultural should be wiped off the map”, Mateschitz told the newspaper, possibly alluding to comments made by European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans in 2015.”

How is it, I wonder, that Mateschitz is not spouting the same politically correct mantras we hear from most European public figures? What has enabled him to escape the straitjacket of political correctness?

The information I’ve read about him indicates that he is of Croatian origin, though born in Austria. (I half-expect someone to say that he is a Jew, though there is nothing to that effect in what I’ve read. Still, one never knows; name origins are often confusing. But if he were in fact of Jewish origin that would make his statements even more anomalous, given the fact that the default Jewish position seems to be for open borders and multiculturalism.)

Maybe the difference is that he is of an older generation, having been born in 1944 before ‘political correctness’ spread its poison throughout the West. Only those who remember things as they once were can truly know what has been lost.

Mateschitz alludes to remarks by the European Commission VP Timmermans, indicating that ‘any society, anywhere in the world, will be diverse in the future’, because ‘that’s the future of the world.’ The implication seems to be “or else.” There is to be no choice. That’s already been made clear, even though we’ve seldom heard it expressed so bluntly, and with such seeming finality, before. It’s more than clear that the European officials are totalitarians.

”Of political correctness, Mateschitz said: “It seems that no one dares to tell the truth, even if everyone knows what the truth is.”

“The elites want citizens to be frightened, and easily manipulated,” he added.”

Despite the fact that the occasional brave soul speaks up and says these things, it seems that most people in Europe (and too many here) are unwilling to break out of the mental prison. Are they frightened, or are they just unaware of reality? Surely there has to be an awakening to reality someday — surely?

Some of us have been saying this for years and have we come any closer to that day?

Still, every voice of truth and sanity is welcome, and the cumulative effect may one day be felt, even if it appears that the mass delusion is as strong as ever.

 

 

 

A glimpse into the millennial mind

As seen on Tumblr:

millennials

For those not up on lefty millennial jargon, ‘terf’ is an acronym for ‘Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist’, in plain English, a ‘radical feminist’ (is there any other  kind these days?) who does not accept ‘trans women’ as women.

I suppose you could say the ‘terf’ (who is being disinvited from following the Tumblr blogger who posted the above) still has some kind of tenuous grasp on what is called reality. No realists welcome in the lefty fold; it seems that’s a basic tenet of leftism in the millennial universe.

Then there was this gem from last November:

millennials 2016-11-23_025425

It appears that they didn’t do their job of ‘educating’ the wayward older generation, as their side didn’t succeed in electing Hillary — or even getting Bernie past the primaries.

But did ‘we’ win, after all, or did they? Time will tell. As I say, ‘they’ are winning the cultural/societal battles, handily. It’s about so much more than politics.

 

On brainwashing

The following is from an article by Edward Hunter, in American Legion magazine, 1956:

“In my years of research into brainwashing, I have interviewed more brainwashed individuals of different races, nationalities and professions thaan anyone elsed. I put the word into the language and first revealed it as a methodically planned strategy.

[…]Brainwashing works through two channels: a softening-up process and an indoctrination process. The former need not refer to communism at all. Its intent is to put the victim’s mind into a fog to create the confusion without which there can be no brainwashing.”

[Note: the writer is referring to the process which was developed by the Communist captors to be used against American POWs in Korea. Compare with what is now referred to as ‘gas-lighting’ the populace in our current society].

“The contemptible trick is to confuse the victim over what happened and what didn’t happen, until he mixes up the two.

[… ]One of the most important lessons we can learn from the red POW camps in Korea is that the softening-up process was alarmingly easy with a great number of American captives. Many of our men appeared already more or less softened up before they fell into communist hands. Somehow, we had done that part of the job for the reds. Home, school, and church had missed out somewhere. The records showed that resistance boiled down to character. Education and rank could be used for good or for bad, according to the individual’s integrity. The main vulnerabilities that the reds were able to exploit in their victims are frequently glamorized here in America as a misnamed ‘liberal education,’ an extremist ‘seeing the other fellow’s point of view,’ watching out only for ‘What’s in it for me?’ and a host of other supposedly ‘modern’ traits that branded anything as ‘corny’ that wasn’t strictly new. What was progressive was given a pro-red coloration, like that fine word.

American craving for the latest model dishwasher and newest television set had subtly shifted over to the demand for the ‘original’ in human character. This has gone so far that we have extended the slang meaning for the ‘corn’ of a ham vaudeville actor to mean anything that is truly genuine, time-tested, and part of our universal, human fabric.

[…] Conversely, ‘to be different’ has been made into a gospel, and its disciples have tied themselves up with such a precise set of rules that non-conformism has become the deadliest of intellectual sins. The modern sophisticate is a psychological conformist praying at an altar he calls non-conformism. As in red semantics, black is white, peace is war, to be liberal means to be one-sided, and tolerance means appeasement of evil and surrender to it. The other side is always right. Patriotism is brushed aside as chauvinism — and ‘corny.’ “

It seems the home-grown left in all Western countries has a remarkably consistent character, and what Hunter wrote here is still typical of the ‘progressives’ and their inverted morality. And the techniques of old-fashioned ‘brainwashing,’ as pioneered in the POW camps, are still very much in use, though modified for a civilian population.

For what it’s worth, Edward Hunter is credited in the magazine with being the one who coined the word ‘brainwashing’, and he says himself that he put the word into our language.

Are people easily swayed?

In the midst of the ongoing disaster in Europe, there’s been a lot of discussion of how Germany — which seems to be Ground Zero in the escalating war against Europeans — has become so self-abasing and unwilling to defend herself. ‘How could the Germans’, it’s often asked, ‘go from being a proud and racially conscious people to being self-flagellating, willing to commit national suicide?’

The consensus seems to be that gradually, over the years since WWII ended, the German people were ‘re-educated’ into believing that their past was shameful and evil, and that they had to atone perpetually for their history, especially during WWII. Slowly, between 1945 and now, they became a passive, PC-whipped people thanks to relentless chaming propaganda.

In light of that popular belief, it’s interesting and puzzling to look at this poll, which was taken in Germany in March, 1946. The poll is in a book titled ‘Public Opinion, 1935-46’, edited by Hadley Cantril, published by Princeton University Press, 1951. See the results below:

Germans on race 1946ab

I would have expected different results. It appears, assuming that the respondents gave honest replies, that even by 1946, not that long after the end of the War, that they held very liberal attitudes on race and intermarriage, views that we now call ‘politically correct.’ What does this say, I wonder? Are people’s opinions that shallow and fluid, that they could be reversed so quickly? Surely the globalist, Babelist propaganda merchants (who were at work even then) hadn’t had time to thoroughly change public opinion in Germany.

Incidentally, the book in question has many polls on various subjects, taken in various Western countries, and it’s fascinating — and depressing, at times — to see how different most people’s views were in that time period. I expect I will post more from these polls.
