Are You Afraid of Being Called a RAAAAACIST? There is No Safety in Silence.

Is This You?
Every time I post about black dysfunction or anti-white racism, the only sound I hear from readers is crickets.  Doesn't anyone have an opinion?  Or are you all just deathly afraid of being called a RAAAACIST?  If so, this is a fear you need to overcome.

There are some compromised conservatives, now known as cuckservatives, who look for the good-boy, pat-on-the-head acceptance from liberal society, by mouthing polite fictions and supporting leftist memes (see an example, here).  They no doubt believe that the charge of "racism" directed at any and all conservatives is a bonafide misunderstanding, one that can be cleared up with a little explanation.  It can't, because it is the charge itself that is irrational -- as well as politically expedient for the lying left.

Others simply react to the racism charge like Dracula reacting to a crucifix.  They scream and turn to dust.  For them, there is no defense for the charge.  They must submit or die, figuratively.

"Racism" is the 21st century's equivalent of the 17th and 18th centuries accusation of being a witch.  In the latter case, no proof was necessary for the charge.  If the powers that be decided you were a witch, and responsible for crop failures, pestilences and bad weather, your goose was cooked.

The 21st century's "racism" accusations are very similar in purpose and effect:  to discredit and ostracize someone, even ruin them.  "Racism" is a magic word that can be used to taint anything, even inanimate objects like flags (Confederate), songs ("Take Me Back to Ole Virginny"), school menus (peanut butter sandwiches), and common expressions ("There is only one race, the human race").  Almost daily we can expect for something new to be labeled, absurdly, as "racist."  However, when everything and anything can be "racist," the term has lost all rational meaning. (See some examples here.)

Racism used to mean the irrational hatred of all members of a particular race, without exception, regardless of any person's individual qualities.  Under that older definition, the most virulent racism today comes from the black community and its white liberal supporters.  This anti-white racism is hateful and destructive, and must be confronted.  Don't be a cuckservative.  Grow some gonads.  Speak out!

UCSB White Student Union to Stage "White Solidarity" Walk-Out

Now we're getting somewhere.  The White Student Union of the University of Santa Barbara have pledged to stage a "white solidarity" walkout.  They stated:
“Join us as we walk out of our classes at 12:30 PM to show solidarity for our brothers and sisters of European descent,” the Walk Out event description reads. “We will march out (preferably chanting something inspiring on the way out) and meet outside of the UCSB MultiCultural Center where we will respectfully voice our complaints. We ask that only self-identified white students and @llies join us.
The Daily Wire has the story here.  However, the Daily Wire states that the White Student Union movement is "satirical" and that white students "are demonstrating, using parody in the form of a white student club, how divisive the black separatist movement really is."

The movement isn't satirical.  As noted in my previous post, anti-white bigotry has become extreme on the college campus, and is slanderous and marginalizing to white students.

White Student Unions Are Proliferating; Left Goes Nuts

I have never been tempted to join any "white" organizations, because I never imagined my epidermis to be of primary importance.  I don't care what color you are, as long as you are pro-liberty, pro-capitalism, and a generally nice person.  However, in the light of the following, I am seriously reevaluating the importance of my race:  the hateful "Black Lives (Only) Matter" movement, the ongoing demonization of American history and our Founding Fathers, and the extreme anti-white race hatred in Academia.  The latter has also inspired white college students to begin an organized resistance to this bigotry.

It appears that the nonsense at University of Missouri, Yale and other leftwing indoctrination centers, have finally inspired some pushback.  White Student Unions are forming in many universities -- around 30 so far.  Even the University of British Columbia in Canada has one.

The hostile work environment on college campuses is nurtured and fed by both black and white, radical professors who hate white people.  Some examples follow:
  • Ali Michael, white professor at University of Pennsylvania said that she chose never to reproduce because her children "would simply inherit white privilege."
  • Cherly E. Matias, University of Colorado education white professor, has written that "Whiteness is a disease."  
  • Saida Grundy, black professor at Boston University said“White masculinity isn’t a problem for America’s colleges, white masculinity is THE problem for America’s colleges."  She also said "Every MLK week I commit myself to not spending a dime in white-owned businesses. And every year I find it nearly impossible.” In another tweet she called white males a “problem population.”
  • Lawrence Brown, black professor at Morgan University wrote "America, you’re killing us, Your law enforcement officers, your criminal justice systems, your jail cells are all weapons of mass destruction. … White America has built an edifice of violence in the psychology and culture of white police officers and correctional officers that continues to dehumanize indigenous and black lives.”
  • Adam Kotsko, white professor at Shimer College in Chicago, stated that if you are white, and even if your ancestors never owned slaves, you are still complicit for it. When asked what white people should do because of it, Kotsko said whites "should commit mass suicide."
  • Zandria Robinson, black Sociology professor at the University of Memphis, tweeted "Whiteness is most certainly and inevitably terror."  She later claimed that white "microaggressions" were responsible for her menstrual problems.
  • Noel Ignatiev, white professor at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, said in a speech:“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others.”  Ignatiev has called himself a "Race Traitor -- Because "treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity."  
The above are but a handful of available examples of the anti-white racism on the college campus.  This is a daily feature of most college campuses in America.  For students of European extraction, the college campus is a hostile work environment -- and people sue for such things.

Clearly, Academia has never been so hostile and slanderous towards white students, and it is time to call a halt.  Other ethnic groups have formed organizations to contest and sue, when necessary, the bigotry of officials, public and otherwise.  

White Student Unions have appeared on FaceBook, representing white students at the University of Cincinnati, the University of Illinois, the University of Mississippi, and others.  OF COURSE, none of these student unions have been officially recognized or accepted by the anti-white, hard-core leftists who run these universities.  

Leftist college administrators and liberal students have reacted negatively, even hysterically, to the formation of these student unions. Only "People of Color" can have student unions to represent them based on their race.  Whites are supposed to accept the scathing insults and slander directed at them daily, by "students of color" and by white and black Marxist college professors.

Whites who attempt to organize for their own protection are not allowed.  Yet. We on the right should do all we can to get such student unions officially recognized, and to help fund their efforts to eradicate anti-white bigotry through lawsuits and protests.

Once organized, will white students have the gonads to counter-demonstrate against hate groups like "Black Lives Matter," or demand resignations of anti-white racist professors?  Let us hope so.

Happy Thanksgiving Fellow Turkeys

I have my scammer-damaged computer almost back to full operational strength.  All major programs have been reinstalled, following a clean reinstall of Windows 10.  Most of my critical files were backed up, if not all of them.  The only files I lost were music and video files, all of which can be retrieved from the Internet, though it will take some work.  I will just pass on retrieving those, or retrieve them on an as-needed basis.

Which reminds me, my music fake books were backed up on a different external hard drive.  I'd better retrieve them right away.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Indian "Tech Support" Scam Catches My Wife

There is a telephone/internet scam originating from India that will steal your money, your identity and your files.  It is popular right now, and someone may call you claiming to be from Microsoft Tech Support, and that they have found viruses on your computer that need to be fixed immediately.  However, it is a SCAM, and the caller is not from Microsoft at all.  One of these scammers called my wife last Sunday, and she fell for it, giving the scammer online access to our computers, and even providing the scammer with the password to her bank debit card. 

My wife had been on the phone with our Internet Service Provider, discussing issues with our wireless modem.  So I was not alarmed when she came to me and said that a tech support person was on the phone, and that "corruptions" were found on our computers, and this was causing the modem problems.  The tech support guy called himself Steve, but "Steve" had a strong Indian accent.  Okay, probably calling from a call center, nothing alarming about that.  However, Steve was not from our Internet Service Provider as I had assumed.

Steve wanted to look at my computer too, so I handed it to my wife and went on smoking my cigar and drinking my morning coffee.  Steve showed us alleged corruptions on our computers using Eventvwr (Event Viewer), a utility built into Windows.  Steve, who announced that he is from Microsoft, said that Microsoft would fix the problems and protect against future ones for two years for $149.

Mrs. Chomper then gave Steve online access to our computers using a downloaded program called TeamViewer, a program that allows someone to remotely control your computer.  While TeamViewer displayed a graph on our screens, "Steve" was busily making changes to our computers behind the scenes, and installing locked passwords that would later deny us access to our own machines.  

I was sitting in the living room, but could hear my wife arguing with Steve about the necessity of providing him with a credit card.  My antennae shot up when Steve insisted on a debit card rather than a regular credit card, and stated that it was necessary for us to set up a Western Union account for transferring money.  I began yelling at my wife, "Hang up, hang up, it's a scam!"  She ignored me, perhaps too focused on her conversation with Steve, or more likely, she thinks she knows everything and needs no direction.  However, in her defense, the scammer knew her name, and provided details of her Microsoft accounts that convinced her he was on the level.  Somehow, the scammer had access to private information even before he called.

At this point, I turned on my iPad and googled "Indian guys calling from Microsoft" or some such, and immediately learned that this is the Microsoft Tech Support scam (though Microsoft has nothing to do with it).  I could find no way to shut off TeamViewer using regular means, so I pushed the power buttons down and held them, forcing our machines to power off.  This stopped any file transfers, but when I turned our laptops back on, we were unable to boot up Windows or access any programs or files.  A window came up instead, asking for a password to allow us to boot up.  It wasn't our regular passwords, and we were locked out.

Dell is sending us new Windows 10 CDs to reinstall Windows, and they should arrive tomorrow.  I suspect that we will lose both programs and files.  Meanwhile, we signed up for Lifelock, my wife cancelled her bank debit card, called Western Union and had them terminate our unwanted account with them (the scammer had already initiated a transfer of $500 from us to him, but fortunately it was cancelled in time).  Now we are busy changing all of our passwords.  For our online banking, I changed the log-in name as well as the password.  We notified the bank to be on alert for suspicious activity.

I am writing this from a nine year old Dell Inspiron, my wife's older computer that hasn't been booted up for more than a year.  It took some doing to get it operating smoothly, using a reg cleaner and updating Windows 7, reinstalling web browsers and such, and of course, running virus scans to be sure it is safe.  That took all day yesterday.

According to TechEye.Net, Microsoft seems to think that the scam "was being used by dodgy people within the Microsoft Partner Network." Microsoft terminated its relationship with certain partners who "are clearly misrepresenting their relationship with us and using our company name in order to facilitate their telephone scam operations."  Microsoft has also sued one Indian company for engaging in these scams.  Read more about it here.

The scammer's insider knowledge of my wife's Microsoft ID's and accounts is what fooled my wife.  However, Microsoft doesn't call people out of the blue.  If you get such a phone call, HANG UP.

Wishful Thinking vs Hard Reality RE: Islamic Violence

Sultan Knish nails it.  He writes:
The fulfillment of Islam depends on the subjugation of non-Muslims so that violence against non-Muslims become the essence of religion. When Hamas states that, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah” or the ISIS rapists tell Yazidi girls that rape "draws them closer to Allah", they really do mean it. They are not perverting a great religion, as our politicians claim, they are living it. Everything they do is based on the Koran, the body of Islamic law and the greater history of Islam.
I would add to the last sentence "and the example of Muhammad."

Read the article here:  Why Islam is a Religion of War 

In the wake of the Paris atrocity of November 13, we see lots of errant opinions on  the causes and cures of Islamic violence.  At the base of this self-delusion is the belief that Muslims have a legitimate beef, and that some kind of accommodation with them is possible.

The only accommodation possible is to become Muslims ourselves, end Christianity and Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and every other religion, in favor of Islam.  We would also have to be complicit in the second holocaust of the Jews, allowing Israel to be overrun by the Muslim hordes.

Once we become Muslims, no more music concerts, pet dogs, pork or alcohol.  No more rights for women, who will become disposable property.  No more Christmases or Hanukkahs. Sharia law will be instituted, allowing adulterers to be stoned to death.  Along with adulterers, gays, fornicators, and apostates will be put to death in one grisly fashion or the other.  Thieves will have their hands cut off in the public square.

Obviously, converting to Islam is not an option any sane westerner would accept.

I believe that containment of Islam, like we once contained Communism, is the most acceptable, near-term answer.  That and a show of moral clarity by our cowardly and accommodating western leaders.  That would include making it clear to Islamic states throughout the world:
  • That we will never accept or allow Sharia law within western nations.
  • That we will never accept Islam as a legitimate religion, due to its religious doctrines requiring  unending war against all mankind, and its ongoing crimes against humanity.
  • That we will never accept Muhammad as a prophet of God, due to his immorality and history of robbery, torture, aggression and mass murder.
  • That we will punish severely any 9/11 style attacks by Islamic forces anywhere in the civilized world.
  • That any nuclear attacks by any Islamic nation on Israel or any western nation will illicit a nuclear response on Mecca and Medina, and the eradication of Islam throughout the world.

The Latest Muslim Atrocity: Paris, France 11/13/2015 #ParisAttack

There was another Muslim attack on Paris last Friday, November 13, 2015.  A team of Muslim jihadists attacked several sites -- a sports stadium, a concert hall, several restaurants and a bar, machine gunning people therein at random.  The death toll now stands at 132 with 350 wounded.

Islam is at war with Western Civilization, and has been for centuries.  We crazy right-wing nuts have been warning about this for some time:  allowing Muslim immigrants into western countries is insanity, and will lead to loss of life and loss of freedoms.  Some truths, oft repeated, always ignored by the liberal/left intelligentsia:
  • Muslims kill people, lots of people, all the time; their presence in western countries is a dangerous threat to the safety and security of the host populations.
  • Muslims refuse to live in peace alongside non-Muslims, and are perpetually at war with all mankind.
  • Muslims will not assimilate into non-Muslim civilizations, but will exist as a separate, permanent, hostile minority, ready to kill and undermine their host countries when the opportunity arises.
  • Massive Muslim immigration is national suicide, and those western leaders who support it (like Angela Merkel, David Cameron and Barack Obama) are fools or traitors or both.
This is nothing new.  John Quincy Adams was the 6th president of the United States, from 1825 to 1829.  He wrote this about Islam:
He [Muhammad] poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE (Adam's capital letters)….Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant…While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.”
As long as there is Islam, innocent people will be murdered for no other reason that they are not Muslims.  The most immediate steps we should take:
  • Cease all Muslim immigration into the West
  • Deport those non-citizen Muslims as soon as possible
  • Encourage those here as citizens to leave, with financial assistance to do so
  • Be energy independent.  Do not deal with Islamic countries unless absolutely necessary.
  • Separate THEM from US. 
Update:  Add one more.  Get western troops out of the Middle East and stop taking sides in their unending wars against each other.  However, continue supporting Israel and its right to exist.

Cats Swing Band, Full Recital, November 13, 2015

We had a recital for our jazz/swing band last night.  You can listen to the entire recital at the link below.

My bass playing, IMHO, has improved greatly since I joined this band.  I have turned a corner.  I am not where I want to be just yet, but I am happy with my progress.

If you want to be a successful bass player:
  • Learn music theory
  • Learn bass techniques
  • Learn SONGS.  The more songs you learn, the easier it is to learn new ones.

University of Missouri Goes Far Left Radical Nuts

There are two terrible disabilities suffered by American college students today.  One is pimples.  The other is crazy-ass, over-the-top radical B.S.  The first condition results in red spots all over one's face. The second is obvious by paroxysms of unfounded outrage over made-up problems, e.g. pervasive racism, white privilege, patriarchal oppression, rape culture.  Solutions: Clearasil for the first condition, destruction of a University President's career for the second.

At the University of Missouri, black students were outraged when some kid in a passing pickup truck shouted "nigger" at one of the black students.  A second episode followed in a separate incident.  The black students found this to be proof of widespread racism on the Mizzou campus.  Their solution:  mandatory racial sensitivity training for all campus staff, teachers and students.  The hiring of more black teachers.  Most of all, an apology from the University president, i.e.:
We demand that the University of Missouri System President, Tim Wolfe, writes a handwritten apology to the Concerned Student 1-­9-­5-0 demonstrators and holds a press conference in the Mizzou Student Center reading the letter. In the letter and at the press conference, Tim Wolfe must acknowledge his white male privilege, recognize that systems of oppression exist, and provide a verbal commitment to fulfilling Concerned Student 1-9-5-­0 demands. We want Tim Wolfe to admit to his gross negligence, allowing his driver to hit one of the demonstrators, consenting to the physical violence of bystanders, and lastly refusing to intervene when Columbia Police Department used excessive force with demonstrators. (Emphasis added.)  See additional demands here.
Apparently, black students blocked the president's car in a parade to demand unending special privileges for America's rudest and most problematic minority, and police removed them from blocking the car, which held up the parade for 15 minutes.

Since that time, the black students, along with their white sheeple supporters, have organized to demand Wolfe's resignation for his failure to agree to their absurd demands.  One student went on a hunger strike, promising to starve to death until Wolfe was removed as president.  The Mizzou football team stated that they will refuse to play football until Wolfe resigned.  The wimp.

Wolfe threw in the towel and resigned as University president this morning.

The problem of immature brats acting out is not solved by acceding to their temper tantrums; it is cured by making them pay for their radical and unreasonable acts.  A good spanking is probably unfeasible, but there are other ways to deal with these immature twits:

1.  Informing the black student union that no apology will be forthcoming.  The students blocking the president's car in a parade were breaking the law and using physical intimidation in an inappropriate setting and manner, and deserved to be removed by the police.

2.  Stating quite clearly that there is no "white privilege," and that claims to the contrary are merely the excuse of non-performing minorities as a mask for their own failures.

3.  Stating that the only "systems of oppression" in place on college campuses is that of Political Correctness, i.e. the intolerance for, and suppression of ideas that conflict with those of the far left.

4.  For student football players refusing to play, barring then from any further participation in sports. If they are enrolled as beneficiaries of a sports scholarship, their immediate expulsion will result, followed by a lawsuit for damages.

5.  Announcing the hiring of more conservative professors, to counter the Marxist crapola now molding the minds of the students.

There is more, but that will do for starters.

Ben Carson Gets Reamed by Politico, Politico Gets Reamed by Rush Limbaugh

Everyone knows the major media (and a lot of the minor media) are mere house organs for the Democratic Party.  They report whatever helps their candidates, omit anything that doesn't, and make stuff up about Republicans when they can't find any real dirt.

Politico, a left wing website attempted to smear Ben Carson yesterday, with a very biased and errant article.  In case you haven't, read about it at Rush's site here.

It's good that conservatives are finally fighting back at media bias, which has become quite extreme in the past eight years.  The left is absolutely determined to foist a form of fascism on us, and we on the right are equally determined that they shall not.  What happens when an irresistible force meets an unmovable object?  Whatever it is, it won't be pretty.

Stogie Stuff: California Rain and Pumpkin Plants

Last week we had the first good rain in three years, here in Northern California.  Now the weather has turned quite cold.  I put an additional blanket on my bed last night.

My pumpkin plant experiment was a failure.  The plants are still alive, and still producing yellow flowers every day, but I suspect the cold will kill them soon.  The big plant produced three small pumpkins, all of which died soon after flowering.  Not sure why.  I'll try a bigger planting in May.

Photoshop Restoration of Photos from Antartica Expedition, 1914 - 1917

Recently, the Antarctic Heritage Trust found some 100 year old photographic negatives from a famous expedition to Antartica, 100 years ago. These were 22 never-before-seen cellulose nitrate negatives discovered inside Captain Robert Falcon Scott's last expedition base at Cape Evans on Ross Island in Antarctica.

The negatives were recovered by the Ross Sea Heritage Restoration Project, which is conserving items from Captain Scott's hut. Conservators carefully separated the negatives, which had become fused together, then developed them to produce 100 year old pictures never seen before. The photos, which are damaged from their century-old ordeal, are from Ernest Shackleton's 1914-1917 Ross Sea Party. This party was stranded for awhile on Ross Island after its expedition ship, SY Aurora was torn from its moorings. Read more about it here and see the pictures here.

My contribution: restoring one of the photographs with Photoshop, just for fun.

Here is the original, taken from aboard the ship Aurora.  The Photoshop restoration is below.
