The True "Legacy of Slavery" on American Blacks

The legacy of slavery in America has presented African-Americans with a lifestyle and an opportunity for material advancement that makes them the envy of every non-American African in the world. How African-Americans of today can justify demanding reparation for slavery is beyond the comprehension of anyone with an ounce of common sense.

So writes Walter Kennedy in Myths of American Slavery (Kindle Locations 2758-2760). 

Kennedy compiled a table of of comparative life statistics for blacks worldwide.  These statistics make it obvious that American blacks are the most prosperous, most literate, and most long-lived blacks anywhere on earth.  Here's the table:

The conclusions that are obvious: American blacks do not merit payment of "reparations for slavery." I strongly recommend Walter Kennedy's book "The Myths of American Slavery" for those who want the whole story on this topic.  You can order the book from Amazon here.  Kennedy and his twin brother James have a website and more books for sale here.

Memorial Day: Did They Die In Vain?

I am not in much of a patriotic spirit this Memorial Day.  Considering the recent damage done to our freedoms, I find myself wondering about all those men and women who died for our country.  Did they die in vain?

There is today a determined political force intent on "transforming America," changing it into something never intended by its founders.  The Second Amendment is under constant attack, and lately the First is also in danger.  Our economy is in shreds, our military greatly weakened.  No external enemy could destroy us, but we are being undermined from within.

If our great nation is dying, it is because of self-inflicted wounds.  It's hard to be optimistic.  Can we the people save the great inheritance of freedom once bequeathed to us, and paid for in so many lives of our military?  I have not given up hope, but the hour is late.

Debunking the "97% of All Climate Scientists" Claim About Global Warming

97% of all climate scientists believe in man-made global warming!

How many times have you heard this monstrous lie in any forum on climate change?

Well it's bogus and has been discredited.  The real figure is around 0.97%, according to an article posted at Yid With Lid.  It seems the researcher who came up with the fantastic number of 97% fudged his data heavily, including scientific papers in his count that were from dedicated global warming skeptics, and misrepresented the presentations of other scientists as well.

Quote of the Day: The Power of Truth

Truth always annoys, frightens, and infuriates. The standard reaction to truth is not understanding or enlightened behavior. It is outrage.

The American University: a Marxist Cesspool of Intellectual Repression

There is a part of America that is solidly under Marxist control, where the populace is brainwashed, freedom of inquiry shut off, and competing ideas eradicated. That part of America is the American University.  In Hating Whitey and Other Progressive Causes, David Horowitz writes:
Graduation ceremonies on America's college campuses have become occasions to reflect on the near total domination of the left over the institutions of higher learning, a politicization of academic life unprecedented in the history of our democracy.
This deplorable situation did not happen by accident. It is the result of a McCarthyism operating inside these academic institutions, fueled by the atmosphere of "political correctness" that has enveloped the academy since the ascension of the tenured left. The hegemony of this left has resulted in politicized hiring practices, systematic exclusion of dissenting voices, and an atmosphere of political intimidation to a degree seen only in countries ruled by communist or fascist or theocratic dictatorships.
College administrators regularly invite far left extremists to speak at graduation ceremonies, but conservatives are generally excluded.   Faculties are almost entirely comprised of Democrats, Marxists and other species of leftists.  The University of Colorado, for example, had a ratio of 30 to 1 in favor of Democrat professors over Republican ones.  There was not a single Republican or conservative in the English, psychology, journalism, philosophy, women's studies, ethnic studies, and lesbian and gay studies departments.  One college professor was eventually outed as a Republican, and was told by a department colleague "we would never have hired you if we'd known you were a Republican."

The university is an intellectual bubble where diversity of thought and opinion is heavily repressed through social pressure, politicized hiring, and the need for students to "go along" to get good grades.  In summary, the left has turned the University into a cesspool of Marxist, totalitarian brainwashing through the following means:
1.  Hiring only leftist, Marxist and Democrat faculty, though a heavily politicized hiring process;
2.  Inviting only leftists, liberals or radicals to be guest speakers or commencement speakers;
3.  Exerting strong social pressure on students and faculty to conform to, and support, the leftist agenda.

David Horowitz concludes:
The politicization of the university and the debasement of scholarship are a national tragedy of incalculable dimensions. If the situation is to be remedied, it can only be by a restoration of the integrity of these institutions parallel in magnitude and scope.

Suddenly It All Became Clear: We Are Being Erased and Replaced

Erasing America
I had an epiphany this morning, on why the Left does what it does.  All leftist activity is devoted to installing a Marxist government in the United States.  In order to do that, they must replace capitalist-loving, patriotic Americans with others more amenable to their plans.

How the left plans to replace America:

1.  Open the borders to a tidal wave of Third World immigrants who do not share American values, traditions, cultures or beliefs.  Most of these folks are less educated and do not understand nor care about politics, economics, or constitutional government.  These immigrants vote overwhelmingly for the Democrat Party.  They will vote for anyone promising free stuff, and willingly trade long term prosperity and stability for short term advantages.  In short, they are more manageable and trainable to support leftist goals.  They also have more children, thus growing their numbers over time.

Millions of non-voting illegal immigrants are now among us, and may provide the tipping point for making the leftist Democrats a permanent majority party. Recent calls, even by so-called Republicans, to grant these immigrants amnesty and make citizens of them, will achieve this.

2.  Marginalize white people and reduce their numbers.  Recent voting patterns prove that white people, especially white men, are the ethnicity most resistant to the goals of the Neo-Marxists, i.e. replacement of capitalism with socialism, massive wealth redistribution, and social regimentation.  Not surprisingly, white men are the single most hated group by left wingers, and this is why whites are being targeted on college campuses.  Whites must be replaced, and marginalized while they are being replaced, with feelings of shame and guilt over imaginary wrongs.  Not surprisingly, whites are not replacing themselves through birthrates, and the white demographic is self-destructing.  It is only a matter of time before whites are effectively replaced, taking their culture, nation and traditions with them.

The above two factors constitute population replacement.  Before the left can replace America with something else, they must replace those who made it, believe in it, and maintain it.

What we on the right are missing are (1) a correct definition and description of the problem, and (2) effective strategies for reversing the above two trends.  

Quote of the Day -- The Biggest Obstacle to Fighting Islamic Supremacism

The foremost obstacle in confronting Islamic supremacism is an entrenched culture of self-hatred that denigrates anything and everything American and exalts the most inveterate America-haters as heroic underdogs.
Robert Spencer, from an Article in The Investigative Project on Terrorism

Spencer doesn't discuss it, but the American self-hatred of which he speaks is fomented by the left in both academia and the media.  It's intent is to erode America's will to resist its own destruction.

Quote of the Day -- or Why the Left Hates White People

The goals of the white-hating, leftist academics are described by David Horowitz in Hating Whitey and Other Progressive Causes:
Their goal remains the destruction of America's national identity and, in particular, of the moral, political, and economic institutions that form its social foundation.

White Pride World Wide? Dealing With the "White Privilege" Slander

Most of us pale people feel uncomfortable with the idea of "White Pride."  Mention it and immediately visions of skinheads and Neo-Nazis come to mind, as well as white sheets and burning crosses.  If you're proud to be white, you must first hate everyone who isn't.  Or so we have been led to believe over the past several decades.

An allegedly Neo-Nazi group uses the slogan "White Pride World Wide."  However, the white pride that they espouse does not include Jews.  So, no thanks.  I like Jews, and I support Israel.  However, it is high time to reconsider the issue, as "white pride" is becoming increasingly necessary in the face of growing anti-white bigotry from the left.

Now here's the problem:  the far left has made serious inroads into our government, culture, media and academia.  We are constantly infused with anti-white propaganda.  If you are white, you should be ashamed of yourself.  If you are white, you are a "racist."  Whites are responsible for all the world's ills.  Yada yada yada.  Some of these racial extremists even advocate the annihilation of the white race.

Many white students are forced to study in the increasingly hostile work environment of the college campus.  The latest gambit of the far left on campus is the introduction of a re-education campaign called "Checking Your Privilege."  Every white student must be made aware that any success he achieves in school or in life is not the result of his own efforts, but only the color of his skin.  Shame shame, guilt guilt.  Everything that is wrong with colored people is your fault.  Do not resist this cultural Marxism, you "racist" dog.

Those students who undergo this brainwashing may come away from it with distinct feelings of shame and guilt for who they are.  Their will to resist the progressive onslaught against American culture, traditions, and capitalism may be seriously weakened.  This is the real goal of leftist academia -- marginalizing white people and eroding their will to resist anti-white initiatives and prejudice.

Somehow we of European extraction must find a way, soon, to combat this pernicious, anti-white bigotry, and make our students and others aware of it.  "White pride" cannot be abandoned to skinheads and Neo-Nazis, but must be mainstreamed as a means of fighting the Neo-Marxist left and preserving our culture and traditions and way of life.  This is not to imply that we despise other races -- we do not.  We welcome any and all who would join us in defeating anti-white bigotry -- including, and especially, Jews.  However, we must be neither tepid nor apologetic about defending our heritage, no matter how much or how loudly the Neo-Marxists scream "racism."

UPDATE:  Here's an article that describes the anti-white, hostile environment of the college campus.
                Here is a second article that describes the anti-Jew, hostile environment of the college campus -- a good reason why Jews and European-descent students face a common enemy and the same kind of discrimination on college campuses.  We should work together to fight it.

Two Worthy Books: One on Immigration, the Other on Slavery

I have read two worthy books in the past two weeks, ones that I recommend.  They are:

1.  The Path to National Suicide - an Essay on Immigration and Multiculturalism, by Lawrence Auster.  This book explains how, due to liberal ideology, our borders were opened in 1965, and how the resulting transformation of America's ethnic composition helped fuel the ideology of multiculturalism which is changing the demographics of America in radical ways.  Auster does not argue that all non-European immigration be halted, but that it is occurring too much and too fast for new immigrants to be successfully assimilated into our Anglo-Saxon, Judeo-Christian culture.  The demographics of America prior to the 1965 immigration act should be restored and preserved, in order to retain our culture, forms of government and traditions.

I found the pamphlet very well written and argued.

2. The Myths of American Slavery, by Walter D. Kennedy.  The actual history of slavery in the United States includes the North's enormous culpability in the institution, as well as its hypocrisy.  The author convincingly refutes the many slanders and falsehoods about the Confederacy, the Southern states, and the myths about the institution of African slavery.  Note:  exposing the whole truth about slavery is not "defending slavery," so please don't go there.  If you adore Lincoln as a demi-god and like to repeat the simplistic falsehoods of the Northern Myth, you won't like this book -- and that's why you should read it.

There is no way you can honor, respect or admire the Yankee invasion of the South in 1861 without undermining your own freedom in the here and now.

I Hate is a very aggressive search engine.  Somehow it installed itself as my default search engine in Internet Explorer 11, and all attempts to change it to Google have failed.  This program acts like a virus or malware in its stubborn resistance to being changed or deleted.  It is for this reason I will no longer use Internet Explorer, due to my inability to reset my home page and desired default search engine.

This overly aggressive marketing scheme can only give a bad name. 

Meanwhile, my Google Chrome browser has ceased to function and cannot load pages from the internet.  So I am using Internet Explorer 11, with its pernicious homepage, for the time being.

I have really liked Google Chrome, but it has ceased to function several times in the past.  Restoring to an operating condition has been difficult.  Reinstallation did not solve the problem.

UPDATE:  I downloaded and installed the Opera Web Browser.  So far it is quick and zippy and works great.  I think I have found my web browser.

UPDATE 2:  I bought a copy of the program "Spy Hunter" and installed and ran it on my computer.  This great little malware removal program removed the toolbar from Windows Explorer and made my Chrome browswer operational again.  I have McAfee virus protection as well as Spybot Search and Destroy, but neither of these programs detected or removed the over 900 malware and adware programs on my computer.  Spy Hunter did, and is worth the price of around $35.

Jury Duty: My First Experience as a Juror

I was a juror on a civil trial for the past three days, and enjoyed the experience.  It was a civil trial regarding a truck accident on a dirt road to a construction site.  Was the property owner negligent in maintaining the road, and should thus be held liable for the cement truck that rolled over the edge, or was the accident more likely driver error?

The burden of proof is on the plaintiff, and in our initial vote, we voted 8-4 that he did not meet his burden of proof.  Only nine of twelve jurors need agree in a California civil suit, so we then entered discussions and deliberations to convince the pro-plaintiff jurors.  We convinced two of them, and found for the defendant by a vote of 10-2.

There were folks on the jury who dressed rather shabbily, who were construction people or truck drivers themselves, in jeans and sweatshirts, boots and baseball caps.  That old saying about not judging a book by its cover was proven true, however.  When discussions started, these folks showed impressive common sense and were articulate.  The jury system relies on the common sense and fairness of the common man, and it usually works.  It worked today, and I felt proud of my fellow jurors.

Serving on a jury was a rewarding experience.  I recommend it.

Hating Whitey: The Hatefulness and Extremism of the College Campus Today

To understand just how hateful, intolerant and extremist the college campus has become, one need look no further than white-hater Noel Ignatiev.  He told his class at a Massuchusetts college that "white males are a cancer" and that all white males should kill themselves, commit suicide, because white males are responsible for all the evil in the world and have never done anything good.  Ignatiev's attitude is typical of the anti-white bigotry that is so prevalent among the "progressive" left, particularly as it is ensconced in the university.

Ignatiev's comments were made back in November of last year, but they show just how villainous and seditious the college campus has become.

It is time for us white people to recognize that we are targeted for marginalization and perhaps even extermination.  I have never identified with my epidermis, but it is high time I did, it's time we all did, for our own protection and survival.

Read Ignatiev's racist screed here.

At Dartmouth, the Word "Fiesta" is "Racist" (But Then Again, What Isn't?)

The racial dementia now infecting academia reached new levels of absurdity this week at Dartmouth College.  A fraternity and a sorority had planned a fund-raiser for cardiac treatments.  The party was named "Phiesta" and was to have a Cinco de Mayo theme.

However, a single Hispanic female objected, saying she was offended by the use of "fiesta" and so the entire event was canceled.  "Fiesta," in Spanish, means "party," and "racism," that over-abused, overly emotive trigger word, is generally defined as the belief that one race is superior, or is understood as mindless hatred of another race based on physical differences such as skin color.  The use of the word "fiesta" and the use of Cinco de Mayo for a party theme, clearly do not in any way convey "racism" as it is generally defined.

Nevertheless, the leader of the fraternity, President Taylor Catchcart of Phi Delt, explained why his organization has a bad case of terminal wimpiness:
“We felt that the possibility of offending even one member of the Dartmouth community was not worth the potential benefits of having the fundraiser,” he said.
Yes, of course -- let those heart patients die, we just can't allow a phony, posing, posturing professional victim to be "offended." I mean, where's our priorities?

Every college student knows he or she can create a ruckus by pretending to be "offended" over anything related to a minority ethnicity, and they will get special attention, deference, apologies and wailing and lamentations from their fellow brainwashed automatons.  The racial hysteria that pervades the college campus has turned the university into a very hostile workplace.

The Daily Caller summarized the situation in a single sentence:
This incident is one more in a long list of episodes that pretty clearly prove that Dartmouth is slowly going insane as an institution.

Comedian Rob Schneider Says "We Are Sliding Very Fast Towards Fascism"

Rob Schneider
Comedian Rob Schneider, in an interview with Chris Stigall of CBS radio in Philadelphia, expressed some fears many of us have now.

Schneider said:
Democracies don’t end well. We are sliding very fast towards fascism. It’s an ugly kind of thing. There’s this kind of mob mentality that we have to be careful of.
He believes comedians are pressured toward one side of the political spectrum.  He commented:
There’s a polarization that’s happening…I do think you can look at government and go, ‘Wow, it is out of control now,’ and if you do criticize or tend to be not directly along a liberal stand, you can get murdered.  
I agree with Schneider about the slide into fascism.  Some have called the modern Democrat Party "Neo-Communist," but I believe it is more Neo-Fascist along the Mussolini model (not the Nazi model).   I have studied fascism (particularly, Jonah Goldberg's book Liberal Fascism), in order to better understand it.

Here is what I wrote about it on June 10, 2013:

California Democrat Congresswoman Wants a $26 an Hour Minimum Wage

Barbara Lee, Democrat from California, wants to raise the minimum wage to $26 an hour in her state.  That means that teenagers working at McDonald's would have to be paid $54,080 a year, assuming they worked full time.  How much would a Big Mac cost under that scenario?  Well let's see.

There you have it, folks.  Barbara Lee, Democrat, wants you to pay $12.73 for a Big Mac.  Throw in a an order of fries and a coke, and lunch will cost you $25.12, where it would only cost $7.87 today.

Barbara Lee, of course, has no clue as to how the economy works, and I am sure that "Math" is a foreign language to her, "cause and effect" an incomprehensible concept.  A $26 minimum wage would cause all fast food eateries to close their doors (no customers, no revenue, no profit) and massive unemployment.

The Effects of a Minimum Wage Increase on Fast Food Prices and Unemployment

Here is my quick-and-dirty calculation of how fast food prices will increase under different minimum wage scenarios. The cost of food preparation for McDonald's is about 89% of total expenses, and I have taken that into account. If I did not, then the increase in prices would be more. The question for those who support proposed increases in the minimum wage, ask yourself if you are willing to pay the increased prices for fast food?  Would you really be willing to pay $12.87 for a chicken strip meal that now costs only $6.99?

The real effect of increases in the minimum wage is to raise unemployment.  The less efficient employees, the newbies, the inexperienced, will be fired.  This has always happened in the past when the minimum wage has been increased.  The Democrats are now claiming that a refusal to raise the minimum wage is "racist," but the truth is that increases in the minimum wage hurt blacks and Hispanics  the most, both in loss of jobs and higher prices for food.

To quote an old argument, would you rather be employed at $7.25 an hour, or unemployed at $10.10 an hour?

Klan Hoods for Republicans? Here's a Hat for Democrats

Some loser-Democrat, one Brett Hulsely, is running for Governor of Wisconsin.  He is way behind in the polls and is now resorting to desperate measures to get attention for his failing campaign.  He has created a supply of Klan hoods, sewn on his daughter's sewing machine.  He plans to hand out the hoods to Republicans attending a state Republican convention today.

Of course, his stunt is vile and reprehensible, but one good turn deserves another, and I have created the above hat to hand out to Democrats at their next convention.  It is far more true than Hulsely's Klan hood stunt, implying that Republicans are RAAACISTS.

I believe it was David Horowitz who recently described Democrats as "Neo-Communists," a description that I find very close to the truth.  So here's a hat for Democrats.  Wear it with pride, Demmies.

Princeton University Freshman Destroys the "White Privilege" Myth

The Other McCain has the best article of the day and everyone should read it:  White Guilt Passes Its Expiration Date.  McCain describes how leftwing excess inevitably leads to a political and cultural backlash, and that backlash is now forming.  Let's hope it crashes on the political scene sometime in early November.

McCain references an essay written by Princeton University freshman Tal Fortgang, in The Princeton Tory. In that essay Fortgang destroys the idiot-left's theory of "White Privilege," the idea that some secret cabal or supernatural power opens doors to all who have a white epidermis; and that none of the success of any white person can be attributed to his own efforts, personal sacrifices or hard work.

The truth is:  "White Privilege" is success by a better culture, a strong work ethic, a willingness to delay gratification while completing college or learning a trade, accepting accountability for one's wins and losses, better civilization skills and better life choices.  These same success factors work for anyone of any color who chooses to apply them.  The angry cries condemning mythical "White Privilege" are the tantrums of losers who want life presented to them on a silver platter, with little or no effort or sacrifice on their part.  When losers lose, they need something or someone to blame, and "White Privilege" is a handy excuse to dodge personal responsibility.

Many if not most colleges in America today support such theories as "White Privilege" and other Marxist themes; they are poisonous hives of anti-American, anti-White, anti-Male, anti-Capitalist hatred and ignorance.  Like a closed up room of stale air, they restrict the circulation of opposing thoughts and ideas.  They are an incestuous and infected bubble of error and sedition where no reality-check is allowed or condoned, lest their carefully crafted illusions pop like bubbles in a strong wind.  It is in such a closed system that fanaticism and radicalism grow unchecked and unchallenged.  This is the typical American university today.

Thank you, Tal Fortgang.  May your essay be the "Common Sense" pamphlet of today, and herald the intellectual revolution on college campuses that washes away leftist propaganda and allows the university to become once again a place of learning and unrestricted thought and inquiry, as it was intended to be.
