The black nationalism that is now the dominant ideology of the council was on proud display, both at the table and in the audience.
Speakers advocating for the deal were taunted by the crowd and cut short by Council President Monica Conyers, who presided over the hearing like an angry bulldog; whites were advised by the citizens to, “Go home.”
Opponents were allowed to rant and ramble on uninterrupted about “those people” who want to steal Detroit’s assets and profit from the city’s labors.
Juxtapose the place and the faces and imagine a white Livonia City Council treating a black union representative with such overt racial hostility. The Justice Department would swoop down like a hawk, and the Rev. Al Sharpton would clog Five Mile Road with protesters.
Black folk want their leaders to be black folk. Is that unreasonable?
The problem here isn’t Conyers or black people; it’s multiculturalism. It doesn’t work.
The Israelis are discovering this:
One of the more disturbing developments in the Middle East is a growing consensus among Israelis that it would acceptable to expel — in the words of advocates “transfer” — its Arab citizens to either a yet as unformed Palestinian state or the neighboring countries of Jordan and Egypt.
But “transfer” is no longer the exclusive policy of extremists, as it has increasingly become a part of mainstream political dialogue. “My solution for maintaining a Jewish and democratic state of Israel is to have two nation-states with certain concessions and with clear red lines,” Kadima leader and Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told a group of Tel Aviv high school students last December, “and among other things, I will be able to approach the Palestinian residents of Israel, those whom we call Israeli Arabs, and tell them, ‘ your national solution lies elsewhere.'”
* Some 55 percent of Jewish Israelis say that the state should encourage Arab emigration;
* 78 percent of Jewish Israelis oppose including Arab parties in the government;
* 56 percent agree with the statement that “Arabs cannot attain the Jewish level of cultural development”;
* 75 percent agree that Arabs are inclined to be violent. Among Arab-Israelis, 54 percent feel the same way about Jews.
* 75 percent of Israeli Jews say they would not live in the same building as Arabs.
If you’re going to make a nation to preserve the Jewish people and culture, you want to have only Jews in it.
Otherwise, some silly young person marries outside the fold, and then those genes get enfolded into the group, and when this happens enough, the group becomes a generic mix of humanity — it’s no longer Jewish.
Enough competing ideologies and people get sick of the decision and turn their backs on Judaism.
When culture becomes mixed, there is no dominant strain, and so people get confused and who rushes in to re-educate them? Marketers. They hate culture because it handles needs with learned practices, not products. Culture is bad marketing. Marketing is bad culture. But it’s what replaces culture in mixed culture states. Just look at the USA.
What works better than mixed-culture/mixed-race (“diverse” or “multicultural”) states? Organic states: one language, one set of values, one culture, one heritage.
We feel more altruistic to those who resemble us because in the past our early ancestors assumed that they were related, according to the study.
The study, published in Biology Letters, even found that we were more naturally drawn to people who looked like us than our own relatives, if the resemblance was strong enough.
The researchers came to the conclusion after a study of 70 identical adult twins who, although genetically the same, had over the years grown to look different from each other.
Then they manipulated the photographs of the participants by digitally mixing them with a model’s face so that the images would either resemble them or their co-twin.
In each case, the person most resembling themselves was preferred almost two thirds of the time — significantly higher than being down to chance alone.
Nature may seem random at times, but traits evolve over thousands or millions of iteration, so they’re not random. In fact, they’re behaviors that were reinforced every generation. So this behavior is logical — why?
For the reason we mention above: for society to work, it has to have a strong collective identity. It also needs to be roughly equal in terms of ability, or resentment rises and revolution threatens.
These are common sense ideas, but they’re taboo in today’s society. Why? Could it be that our civilization is failing and we’re in denial?
Diversity continues to fail:
A $950,000 earmark for a Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the omnibus spending bill that passed the U.S. House Wednesday has drawn the ire of U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Kiron.
The Iowa Republican called the National Council of La Raza a “pro-amnesty organization” and said “the last thing Congress should be doing is handing out cash to apologists for immigration law breakers.”
“American taxpayers do not support La Raza’s agenda or its position in support of amnesty for illegal aliens,” King said in a statement.
La Raza is Spanish for “the race/nation,” an older usage of the term nation related to the English word race. It is not “The People” as commonly translated: that’s la gente, but you will not see this mentioned in the mainstream media.
Mexicans want their own culture, too. If economic forces make it sensible for them to move to the USA, they will do so, but they don’t want to lose ethnic-cultural (ethnocultural) identity. So they cling to it, at the expense of the unity of the USA.
A better solution is the organic state: one nation, one people, one set of values and customs. Yet this remains unpopular because we’re all afraid that it will mean we face more obligations and restrictions. What if they decide to send the Irish back to Ireland? I’m half-Irish, and now I’m afraid.
The truth is always unpopular because it involves mention of how small, fragile, out of control and inconsequential we are as individuals. Nations die because they cannot face the unpopular truth.
