Zero Is The Number

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

A new phrase is floating around: “Zero is the number.”

This refers to how we fix the problem of diversity, which ruins whatever civilization is foolish enough to adopt it. People ask how many immigrants should come in our country, or how many people from other ethnic groups should live among us, and the answer is that zero other people can live among us. It will not help them, and it will destroy us.

In Brussels and Washington, the politicians are rubbing their hands over the lengthy debates they plan to have about the “appropriate” numbers for immigration and for refugees in each town. They win the debate if we even start it, because entering that debate signals acceptance for diversity and immigration in the first place. In reality, we cannot tolerate either.

Zero is the number. Civilizations survive based on several prerequisites. They need to be isolated. They need to be able to feed their citizens. They need to be able to defend themselves. And they need to be homogeneous, because anything else — no matter how nice, smart, kind or friendly the other groups are — means that there can be no social standards, culture and hierarchy.

This is why the Left loves diversity. They want to bring in the Other so that they can destroy culture and then, we will have no principle of social organization other than government. They want a group which will feel intimidated by us, so will be defensive and resist us. Finally, they want to breed us into a beige new race, committing genocide against us.

If we let them do any of this, they will wait a few months, then pick up the pace again. They will never stop. The only way to survive is to nip this in the bud and oppose it entirely. Those who are not of the founding group of a country, like Germans in Germany or Japanese in Japan, needs to go back home. If they are mixed, they need to go to mixed-race areas like Dubai or Brazil.

There is no other way. Everything else ends in our destruction. Zero is the number.

Immigration Savages Teen Jobs

Saturday, June 24th, 2017

“Correlation is not causation,” morons love to say, but when a contributing factor can be identified, so can causality. As immigration has bloated the third world underclass of the West, teenagers have found themselves displaced from jobs they normally took, resulting in a collapse of teenage labor:

Paul Harrington, Neeta Fogg and Ishwar Khatiwada of Drexel’s Center for Labor Markets and Policy studied average teen employment rates from June through August. They found that the percentage of employed 16-to-19-year-olds fell from 45 percent in 1986 to 30 percent last year. (Their numbers are lower than the July-only figures because teens are less likely to work in June and August.)

They forecast that teens’ June-August employment rate will reach 30.5 percent this year, surpassing 30 percent for the first time since the recession year of 2009 and evidence of an overall improved job market.

Perhaps the percentage has jumped a whole half-point this year because of the improved job market, but another factor is the mass exodus of immigrants in response to the rise of the polices of Donald J. Trump regarding immigration. In the meantime, American wages remain stagnant since the 1970s, and in effect lowered because of the additional requirements of living now versus then. Economics would attribute this an influx of new people into the workforce, which has been achieved through women in the workplace, immigration and affirmative action.

Leftist policies of equality are designed to force a society where people share the wealth equally. When the workforce is swollen, few individual workers find themselves in a position to rise in compensation above the rest, producing a vast peasant mass who will do whatever government instructs them to, since it controls their compensation through regulation. That is the Leftist endgame here.

In the meantime, many Americans — especially those discriminated against by law, namely European-descended ones — find themselves dropping out of the workforce into the barter economy, part time gigs, and selling junk on eBay to make ends meet. As usual, Leftist policy benefits Leftism at the expense of normal, healthy people.

Towards Removing The Diversity That Is Destroying Oregon

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

So why would anyone immigrate from abroad and come to The Great State of Oregon? Umm, it ain’t for the piney woods.

In a report that has national implications, almost half of the illegal immigrants held in Oregon jails in May faced serious sex crimes including rape, abuse and sodomy. Of 969 illegals held in jail for that one month, 461 have been charged with the three sex crimes. A majority are being held in Portland and Salem area jails, according to the report from immigration expert David Olen Cross, whose report is based on statistics from Oregon’s Department Corrections and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers. Most, over 83 percent, were from Mexico….

This, of course, is nothing new. In any nation with open borders and a higher standard of living than the neighbors, a certain proportion of those who flood in will be human detritus that would never make it under a truly Darwinistic set of conditions. Offer a generous welfare state, and the flood can drown you. At that point the prison system becomes a high-pass filter that takes out the worst of the diaspora.

The issue has become so serious that President Trump is proposing the following legislation to stop it in its tracks.

President Donald Trump said in a speech here Wednesday night he would soon introduce legislation that immigrants to America should not receive welfare benefits for at least five years. The new measure will stipulate that “those seeking admission into our country must be able to support themselves financially and should not use welfare for a period of at least five years,” Trump said as the crowd of thousands at the campaign-style rally exploded into extended applause.

In response, our “Conservative media” does the predictable tergivorate cuck-dance on the end of its Black Dragon Dildo. We first get reminded of the severeness of the author’s hard-ass, Dirty Harry Conservatism.

I’ve been called an “immigration hawk” on more than one occasion and far worse by liberal detractors. I support building the wall, want tougher vetting of new arrivals and I believe that every single person who is in this country illegally is a criminal and merits deportation if they are identified and apprehended, even if they’re “not doing anything else wrong.”

But….

But if someone has come here legally with noble intentions and aspirations and they are following the rules, they may need some temporary assistance from time to time just as regular citizens do.

In other words, posture like you’re all gangsta and hard. Show us your severe Conservatism. Then, after establishing that you’ve not only opposed Leftism, but have even hurt their feelings, you stab a real Conservative, offering a real-world proposal right in the frikking back. Everybody is a Severe Conservative until its actually time to pack down in the scrum against real-world problems caused by utopian socialism.

You see, back in the 1950s, in addition to having to be from Western Europe, no immigrant could legally come to the United States who would constitute a public charge. This verbiage still remains in the current USC. The government explains below:

Public charge has been part of U.S. immigration law for more than 100 years as a ground of inadmissibility and deportation. An individual who is likely at any time to become a public charge is inadmissible to the United States and ineligible to become a legal permanent resident.

But…we then get the following raft of gibberish designed to reopen the borders and bring in the flood.

In determining inadmissibility, USCIS defines “public charge”as an individual who is likely to become “primarily dependent on the government for subsistence, as demonstrated by either the receipt of public cash assistance for income maintenance, or institutionalization for long-term care at government expense.” See “Field Guidance on Deportability and Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds,” 64 FR 28689 (May 26, 1999). In determining whether an alien meets this definition for public charge inadmissibility, a number of factors are considered, including age, health, family status, assets, resources, financial status, education, and skills. No single factor, other than the lack of an affidavit of support, if required, will determine whether an individual is a public charge.

In fact, here’s a list of welfare that doesn’t really count as welfare.

•Medicaid and other health insurance and health services (including public assistance for immunizations and for testing and treatment of symptoms of communicable diseases, use of health clinics, short-term rehabilitation services, prenatal care and emergency medical services) other than support for long-term institutional care
•Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
•Nutrition programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)- commonly referred to as Food Stamps, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program, and other supplementary and emergency food assistance programs
•Housing benefits
•Child care services
•Energy assistance, such as the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
•Emergency disaster relief
•Foster care and adoption assistance
•Educational assistance (such as attending public school), including benefits under the Head Start Act and aid for elementary, secondary or higher education
•Job training programs
•In-kind, community-based programs, services or assistance (such as soup kitchens, crisis counseling and intervention, and short-term shelter)
•Non-cash benefits under TANF such as subsidized child care or transit subsidies
•Cash payments that have been earned, such as Title II Social Security benefits, government pensions, and veterans’ benefits, and other forms of earned benefits
•Unemployment compensation

To understand why this is an unmitigated fail, compare the fortunes and contributions of immigrant groups who come here as guest workers rather than partake in our dysfunctional version. To understand how US immigration should work, compare Nigerians that come to the US to Nigerians that stay in Nigeria (See countries with lowest average IQ).

Nigerian immigrants have the highest levels of education in this city and the nation, surpassing whites and Asians, according to Census data bolstered by an analysis of 13 annual Houston-area surveys conducted by Rice University. Although they make up a tiny portion of the U.S. population, a whopping 17 percent of all Nigerians in this country held master’s degrees while 4 percent had a doctorate, according to the 2006 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. In addition, 37 percent had bachelor’s degrees. In comparison To put those numbers in perspective, 8 percent of the white population in the U.S. had master’s degrees, according to the Census survey. And 1 percent held doctorates. About 19 percent of white residents had bachelor’s degrees. Asians come closer to the Nigerians with 12 percent holding master’s degrees and 3 percent having doctorates.

This means that Nigerians who emigrate are among the most motivated of their people. They avoid ever qualifying as a “Public Charge.” They’d go road rage on your ass if you accused them of ever wanting to be one. That Uber or the taxi you may have caught this morning was quite possibly driven by a 1st generation Nigerian immigrant.

His kids, meanwhile are getting straight A’s or else they won’t be happy little second generation Nigerian Americans when Daddy parks the cab for the night. Intelligence, you see, is the smallest part of education once you hit an age where the amount of homework you perform every night starts making a statistical difference.

Meanwhile, the newer diasporas are told Amerikans are just racist white people that owe them a living. What do you do with these racists? In Oregon, you apparently fvck ’em and tear out their eye sockets. At least that’s what the crime stats would leave me to believe. So what do?

You go full Trump this problem and build the wall. Not just physically, but metaphorically as well. The US does well with immigrants who come here to earn a living and then go back home. These are too busy busting sod to yell “Allah Ackbar!” and stab the airport cops in Flint, MI. The people who come here as guests will be glad to take their wealth and new skills back to their homelands as those stabilize.

If we want to stop playing the stupid diversity game, we need to move from a mentality of inviting people to come stay here forever as guests of our welfare system, and instead adopt a policy of having guest workers. This is more politically competent, and allows us to take little baby steps toward ending diversity entirely. You will always get what you tolerate. Oregon is tolerating too darn much. The results of this tolerance show us the future of the diversity cult.

Stop playing DR3 and the Magic Dirt/Proposition Nation game. The cucks won’t ever miss their Public Charges if we stop letting them in to begin with. At that point, President Trump or one of his successors will have a much easier time ending diversity, which threatens our existential survival, than he would by attempting to stop immigration entirely at this very moment.

Aristotle And Plato On Why Diversity Is Tyranny

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

Some have noticed recently that the ancients realized that diversity was a means to an end, namely of the power of tyrants. Guillaume Durocher quotes Aristotle on the topic of multiculturalism:

Aristotle’s ideal of citizenship, entailing civic duties and group solidarity, necessarily requires a strong common identity and a sharp differentiation between citizens and foreigners. Conversely, foreign mercenaries had no solidarity with the people, and were thus frequently used by tyrants to enforce their unjust rule:

The guard of a legitimate king is composed of citizens: that of a tyrant is composed of foreigners.

It is a habit of tyrants never to like anyone who has a spirit of dignity and independence. The tyrant claims a monopoly of such qualities for himself; he feels that anybody who asserts a rival dignity, or acts with independence, is threatening his own superiority and the despotic power of his tyranny; he hates him accordingly as a subverter of his own authority. It is also a habit of tyrants to prefer the company of aliens to that of citizens at table and in society; citizens, they feel, are enemies, but aliens will offer no opposition.”

This passage brings to mind the Bolshevik tyranny in the early decades of the Soviet Union, when the government, and especially the secret police, was dominated by people from non-Russian ethnic groups.

Interestingly enough, Plato observes the exact same thing, namely that tyrants import foreigners as replacements for non-compliant citizens:

Certainly.
And who are the devoted band, and where will he procure them?
They will flock to him, he said, of their own accord, if lie pays them.

By the dog! I said, here are more drones, of every sort and from every land.

Yes, he said, there are.
But will he not desire to get them on the spot?
How do you mean?
He will rob the citizens of their slaves; he will then set them free and enrol them in his bodyguard.

To be sure, he said; and he will be able to trust them best of all.
What a blessed creature, I said, must this tyrant be; he has put to death the others and has these for his trusted friends.

Yes, he said; they are quite of his sort.
Yes, I said, and these are the new citizens whom he has called into existence, who admire him and are his companions, while the good hate and avoid him.

It would be foolish to imagine that anything about human behavior has changed for the last 2400 years. The same tactics still work: if you want to rule forever, subjugate people by destroying their culture and importing scabs to supplant them. The EU and US have pursued the same policy since 1965.

Next Stage Diversity: Back To Chinatowns

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

As European immigration policy drowns under a wave of African and Middle Eastern refugees, the clever but not intelligent leaders elected by the apparently moronic voters have decided to “fix” diversity so the outraged sheep stay asleep for just a little while longer.

Instead of demanding full integration, they are now proposing “Chinatowns,” or ethnically unified communities for foreigners among the communities for natives. In this way, they will localize the problems of third world immigration — hiding from sight some of those rapes, assaults, thefts and public defecation events (PDEs) — and allow integration to take place over time.

This begins with the idea of relocating a whole Syrian village to a deserted area in Latvia:

In a conversation with the “New Osnabrückerzeitung” last Tuesday, Ska Keller has proposed to send a whole Syrian village to Latvia, for example. “The idea with the Syrian village is a possibility that could be used, for example, if refugees do not want to go alone in a country where there are no refugees.”

Of course, we know how this works. Low self-confidence European males have a high proclivity toward outbreeding, so they will find girlfriends in the new communities, have children with them, and then integrate those children into the native communities. Eventually admixture will be high enough that people will just throw in the towel and let it happen.

Diversity takes multiple forms. The first, as was present in the USA for many years, is the idea of having separate communities for each ethnic group. This allows them to be oblivious of the actual problem of diversity until gradual admixture creeps up on them and obliterate them. Our democratic leaders replaced this with integrated community diversity in the 1960s to speed up the process.

Now that their new method is failing, they are going back to the old for a generation so that the conservatives go back to sleep, as they always do, while immigration continues and integration infiltrates the population and destroys its ethnic continuity as a prelude to outright replacement by outbreeding.

How To Live With Diversity

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Diversity sucks and is dangerous. It is less dangerous when a community actively encourages its members to take full advantage of their rights as American Citizens to own firearms. She points out that nobody cares about the safety of women and children in a diverse, Anarcho-Tyranny such as the Modern Amerikan City. This is excellent self-reliance. I feel greater confidence that I won’t get stuck taking care of someone who handles their own business.

Ownership of a weapon is a responsibility. It is a step towards adulthood rather than the permanent childhood as a warden of the state. It is also empowering. A 6’2″ 225Lb aggressive male would typically have their way with any woman he chose to slap around and assault. That stops when the woman is properly trained in the use of a handgun and points it directly at his center of mass. At that point in the proceeding, the bigger the man is, the more he is in mortal danger. It isn’t hard to drill lead into the center of a really large mass. It is hard to get into a fist-fight with one. There was some old joke in the American West that all men were created equal, but only a Colt .45 kept it that way.

Compare and contrast the females in the YouTube Video above who purchase firearms, join a gun club and go train together at the range to the disarmed London Cops facing the Islamo-Fascists that Sadiq Khan relies on for his continued electoral majorities as Mayor. The London Police don’t believe they should have to employ deadly force in a free society. The attitude is summed up below.

“In a free and democratic society, there is going to be a balance between democracy, freedom and openness, and a police state — and none of us want to live in a police state,” said Brian Dillon, former head of the Met’s firearms command who now runs the counterterrorism consultancy Rubicon Resilience. “Therefore at some point some attacks are regrettably going to hit home, that’s inevitable,” he added. “Not everything can be stopped.”

When a population is disarmed and denied access to firearms, the fightback against soulless killers gets harder. The killers won’t obey laws. If they are willing to kill you, they won’t get too picky as to whether their methods. Once you’ve committed a capital offense, the additional charges no longer matter. They aren’t going to wake you back up and give you a shot in the other arm.

There are three reasons why someone would logically understand they will get the max* for killing another person and do it anyway.

1) They don’t believe they will get caught, so they are brazen. Chicago, Illinois is an example of this. If someone has no moral qualms about dropping and drilling someone, and they assume there is no way they’ll get caught; then they assume murder is de facto legal and if they get the itch they scratch it.

CHICAGO — In 2012, the body count — 506 murders — marked Chicago as America’s murder capital. But here’s another grim statistic: Chicago police solved just 129 of those killings last year, a 25 percent clearance rate — the lowest in 21 years.

2) They believe so strongly that they should kill you that having you die is worth any penalty they eat as a result of their actions. The Fort Hood Shooter, Malik Nidal Hassan, is an example of this sort of killer. When the assumption that the gas chamber awaits no longer discourages a potential killer, you are your only reliable defense against this person’s diabolical intentions.

Nidal Malik Hasan, the Army psychiatrist who opened fire on dozens of soldiers at Fort Hood., Tex., was found guilty Friday of murdering 13 people, taking him one step closer to becoming the first active-duty soldier to be executed in more than 50 years. Hasan, who acted as his own attorney but demonstrated little interest in mounting a defense, was convicted on 13 charges of premeditated murder and 32 of attempted murder by a panel of senior officers.

3) They believe that you lack the conviction to defend yourself or punish them. This is what happens when large groups of people have their negative actions excused because of perceived victimhood. The “victims” then no longer consider your death a crime. It is considered condign punishment. They have a right to shoot you for slavery, poverty, racism, classism, capitalism, turning them down for a date 12 years ago, etc… Once you give a knave a moral justification for their behavior, they no longer believe they are the “The Bad Guy.” Once they have a chat with the high-powered lawyer and Officer Friendly, everyone will agree you should have been stabbed, shot or robbed.

In societies afflicted with cultural diversity featuring supercharged identity politics, all three of these individuals will be amongst you. While judicious stereotyping can help you avoid a large number of the orcs, it will be like Pokemon. You can’t catch them all. Not all Muslims are terrorists, not all terrorists are Muslim. Not all killers are dope-dealers, not all dope-dealers are killers. And we can go on all day. Diversity will make it impossible for you to identify every threat and avoid them. You have to be ready when the threat manifests and attacks you or those that you love. It isn’t to trifle that Simone’s video quotes JRR Tolkien.

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.

Before belittling the gun owner, or arguing they shouldn’t enjoy that right, ask yourself an important question. How much do you love the ones you are responsible for defending? It may be the gun owner, not the one who ridicules his or her ignorance, that is the superior and more mature human being. Diversity is not our strength. A .45 that you know how to use will always be yours.


* — The max in most places in the US is typically a ticket on the night train to The Big Adios. In Europe your mileage may vary.

Breitbart Succumbs To Leftist Capture As DR3 / Magic Dirt Becomes Official Policy

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

As mentioned previously on this site, Breitbart has fired Katie McHugh for stating the truth about diversity, namely that if there were not Other groups here we would not suffer their conflicts.

This provoked widespread outrage among the Right, who are currently looking for an honest news source, which means one that bucks trends like political correctness and reports the relevant news in full. Previously, Breitbart looked like it was replacing the somewhat Left-leaning Fox News, which is undergoing changes to make it more Leftist-friendly.

The full exchange shows McHugh stating the truth that all mainstream media establishments seem to dance around, and then reminding someone who is not English that his opinion is not necessarily on point. In return, the Breitbart kaffeeklatsch erupted:

A number of Breitbart colleagues, who chose to remain anonymous, also attacked Ms McHugh for her Islamophobic comments. Speaking to CNN anonymously on Sunday, one said they found them “appalling” while another branded them “terrible”.

…This is by no means the first time she has made inflammatory remarks about race. She once told her 19,000 Twitter followers: “Mexicans wrecked Mexico and think invading the USA will magically cure them of their retarded dysfunction. Lol.”

It is rare for Breitbart, a publication which has been accused of writing racist and misogynist articles, to dismiss its employees for their controversial views. Although one exception is the case of Milo Yiannopoulos. In February, the alt-right figurehead, who was one of the site’s most high-profile writers, was forced to resign from the publication after his apparently pro-paedophilia remarks resurfaced in an old podcast.

McHugh said nothing that Ann Coulter, Pat Buchanan and any conservative before 1965 would have admitted was true, and her comments are especially on point regarding recent Muslim terror attacks in the UK and France. If diversity did not exist, the problems of diversity — including the actions of other groups who want to dominate or destroy us — would not afflict us.

Breitbart has succumbed to DR3, or the tendency by conservatives to attempt to “prove” they are non-racist by accusing others of racism, creating a circular firing squad:

Many on the Dissident Right mock cuckservatives for engaging in “DR3” or DemsRRealRacists i.e. incapable of defending their values on their merits, they concede the Left’s moral premises, but accuse them of being the “real racists”, homophobes, sexists etc.

DR3 afflicts the mainstream Right, which struggles for “respectability” or at least less censorship in a Left-leaning time. Big internet giants like Google and Twitter, major publications and big donors often will drop and ignore any publication which crosses the line on race, which in late Leftism means anything but foaming-at-the-mouth advocacy of diversity or having multiple ethnic and racial groups in the same society.

As an implicit endorsement of diversity, DR3 subscribes to the “Magic Dirt” idea that if we take people from the third world, bring them to our lands and instruct them in propaganda for our system and culture, they will take it up and suddenly become us. This both replaces us and replaces their own culture with ours as a dominant colonial power.

When conservatives take up “magic dirt,” it shows that they have been captured by the very group they claim to oppose, namely the Left, since they have adopted Leftist policies like diversity, equality and indoctrination.

Over the past two years, Breitbart has increased its hiring of ethnic minorities. Its policy appears to be shifting more to what they will probably call “moderate,” but in a time when almost everything is full Leftist, really means conservative-flavored Leftism. As a result, they need to lose the people who are pushing the Overton window farther to the right.

This is reminiscent of the time that National Review fired John Derbyshire for telling unfortunate truths about race. While he stopped short of criticizing diversity itself, it seems that being less than enthusiastic about having Other groups among us is cause for exile.

As this story saturates the Right-wing, especially the internet, it becomes clear that Breitbart is not hoping to become a better news source than Fox News, but simply replace it by doing what it once did. As the mainstream shifts more to the Left and everyone else — who dislike the fast food, soft drinks, politically correct and insipid mass culture anyway — heads toward a realist Right position, this means that Breitbart has backed the wrong horse.

Conservatives who gain power and influence in the system have a nasty history of betting on Leftism winning and instead of fighting, and then in anticipation of this defeat, choosing to shift Leftist so that as individuals they can accelerate their own careers instead of widening the pool by moving that Overton window.

From a personal standpoint, this is a smart move in the short term. They push all their competition back, and take on the sinecure of being Official Conservatives who say nothing that will disturb the herd by implying that our civilization has to change direction or it will fail. In the long term, however, they defeat themselves by becoming their competition, in turn rendering themselves irrelevant.

The future belongs to writers like Katie McHugh who state the plain truth not through attacks on specific racial groups, but in observing that diversity guarantees conflict and that the only solution is to go back to the nation being defined by a single ethnic and cultural group, preserving peace through separation.

Why Christianity Is Dying

Saturday, May 27th, 2017

When Christians wonder why the pews are less full, the answer is simple: Christianity has, like Leftism, followed an individualistic path that glories the self and denies reality, including its metaphysical aspects.

For the most recent guffaw on this topic, witness the suicidal Christian desire to use invaders as pew-fillers:

Some say it is an act of demographic conquest. Others argue it is a product of a failed American foreign policy. But one of America’s best known apologists says the crisis for the Christian West could be a new opportunity to win converts to the faith.

Joel Richardson, New York Times bestselling author of “The Islamic Antichrist” and the new book “Mystery Babylon,” says missionaries should not overlook the unique opportunity they’ve been given with the current wave of Muslim immigrants.

“Throughout history, the Lord has always used catastrophes for His own redemptive purposes,” he told WND. “This is exactly what He is doing now with the current Syrian war and the global Muslim refugee crisis. Obviously mass Muslim immigration to the West has innumerable long-term problems. Any casual glimpse at Western Europe reveals this. European secularism, socialism and multiculturalism have failed to incorporate the Muslim immigrants.”

The above treats Christianity as an ideology, which is what all individualists tend to do. Their beliefs are designed for their protection as individuals, and they need a herd to enforce those beliefs, so they create a network of rules designed to force others to not do anything that interferes with the ability of the individual to be individualistic, a condition in which they externalize the cost of their own behavior to society at large and profit from the exchange.

Christians of this nature want to build an army of true believers and they do not particularly care who those people are so long as there are many of them. Quantity, not quality, as usual. The downside of this is that the newcomers always adapt Christianity to their own needs, as any culture does, and soon we are back at square one.

But in the meantime, this author will get his headlines. His books will sell because his congregation is desperate for anything which makes a threat seem like a non-threat, and therefore, justifies the standard conservative behavior of doing nothing and paying taxes to fund the large government they hate.

And through his success, that of Christianity and society at large will be diminished.

Leftists Outraged That Holocaust History And Immigration May Be Openly Discussed

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Leftists are disturbed that, since our society has achieved diversity, there are many different opinions floating around out there which do not please the Leftist narrative.

Currently the Leftist governments are campaigning against Facebook to force it to censor “hate speech,” which is a very wide category that includes any speech critical of diversity or sexual, racial, ethnic or religious groups. Traditionally hate speech rules favor minorities, which means anyone but the founding ethnic group in a nation, but now that majorities are becoming more like minorities, interpretations vary.

This creates a situation where Leftists express outrage at the lack of censorship on some social media sites:

Facebook’s policies on Holocaust denial will come under fresh scrutiny following the leak of documents that show moderators are being told not to remove this content in most of the countries where it is illegal. The files explain that moderators should take down Holocaust denial material in only four of the 14 countries where it is outlawed. One document says the company “does not welcome local law that stands as an obstacle to an open and connected world” and will only consider blocking or hiding Holocaust denial messages and photographs if “we face the risk of getting blocked in a country or a legal risk.” A picture of a concentration camp with the caption “Never again Believe the Lies” was permissible if posted anywhere other than the four countries in which Facebook fears legal action, one document explains. Facebook contested the figures but declined to elaborate.

While Holocaust revisionism gets a pass, which is a reversal of past trends in censorship, interestingly enough Facebook struggles to come up with a standard for discussion about immigration:

Documents show Facebook has told moderators to remove dehumanizing speech or any “calls for violence” against refugees. Content “that says migrants should face a firing squad or compares them to animals, criminals or filth” also violate its guidelines. But it adds: “As a quasi-protected category, they will not have the full protections of our hate speech policy because we want to allow people to have broad discussions on migrants and immigration which is a hot topic in upcoming elections.”

Most likely, Facebook policy shows us the complexities of business in a diverse environment. In much of the world, especially wherever Islam is, criticism and revisionism of the Holocaust is a rising interest. On the other hand, in Europe and in the USA, Facebook is trying to filter out any content that criticizes immigrants for engaging in illegal activities or being dirty.

Naturally this will upset Leftists and they will push for more censorship. Assuming that this Facebook leak is not engineered by Facebook itself, which is an assumption no one should make, this shows the impossibility of maintaining community standards under diversity. And so the more Leftists succeed in achieving diversity, the more fragile their ideological hold becomes.

Trump And Dazzle Camouflage

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Dazzle camouflage was one of the more important inventions of the early twentieth century. At that time, boats were spotted using binoculars instead of radar. Inventors experimented with ways to make boats less visible.

In a seemingly great irony, one of the best ways to hide a boat from human eyes turns out to be not making it fade away, but making it noisy. Like the coloration of a calico cat, dazzle camouflage works by obscuring patterns behind distracting shapes. The eye cannot identify an object but sees the type of visual noise that resembles a complex background, so it fades into the background.

Donald Trump uses a dazzle camouflage method of obscuring his actions. He speaks to the talking points addressed by the Left, then makes them larger than life, and so what he says fades into the background. Simultaneously, he distracts them with some other outrage — even a misspelling in a Tweet — that keeps them looking in the wrong area.

For example, here is Trump baffling the opposition on the question of immigration:

The interviewer pressed him again on the scale of legal immigration, asking “[are you] not looking to reduce the numbers?”

“No, no, no, no, we want people coming in legally. No, very strongly,” Trump replied, as two of his economic advisors sat beside him — top economic staffer Gary Cohn, and Steve Mnuchin, the Secretary of the Treasury.

Trump also backed proposals to keep importing temporary contract workers for the agricultural sector, even though the cheap labor will retard farmers’ emerging interest in buying new machinery, such as robot apple-pickers and robot cow-milkers.”

The dazzle is Trump talking enthusiastically about immigration, which seizes the headlines, but then he qualifies his statements by making it clear that he is talking about temporary workers:

We also want farm workers to be able to come in. You know, we’re going to have work visas for the farm workers. If you look, you know we have a lot of people coming through the border, they’re great people and they work on the farms and then they go back home.

In other words, instead of immigration we have a guest-worker program. He also has distracted from the underlying issue, which Leftist journalists who cannot balance checkbooks will not understand, which is that economic forces drive immigration through a push-pull scenario.

The push comes from their home countries, where too high of a population causes them to want to escape low wages; the pull occurs in the first world, where we offer free welfare, healthcare, housing and guaranteed jobs through affirmative action. No one can discriminate against the newcomers, so they get to be first in line everywhere. What a bargain! — for them only.

Trump instead seeks to recontextualize the issue. This is not about immigration, but having people come here temporarily to work, which leads to us identifying these people and setting up programs specifically for them, which opts them out of affirmative action and normal welfare benefits. At least, this is the direction in which he seems to be going.

Will he succeed? It is hard to tell because Team Trump operates behind two layers one one-way glass. The first is that they know the press is both hostile and entirely illiterate regarding the actual issues, so the hound-dogs of the media must be distracted and deflected. The second is that the voters know nothing of how things get done, so they must be baffled.

In addition, Team Trump is avoiding transparency because Team Obama left behind a group of hostile staffers who leak anything that is said to more than one person. As a result, Trump and his staff are doing their best to signal nothing in advance, which is freaking out the D.C. political establishment because now all decisions seem arbitrary and sudden.

Democracy sets up a situation where the voters become tyrants. They want appearance, not reality, which means that any realistic program will provoke their ire but they do not mind being lied to and deceived. Under those circumstances, the only way to win is to misdirect with dazzle camouflage while quietly changing the structure of American government in the background.
