They think you are enabling violent white supremacists [KT]

wt suprem millen.jpg

Thoughts from a Progressive Alliance

If you have ever said "we all belong to the human race," you are part of the structure supporting white supremacist genocide. See above.

It's not just the New York Times going after Donald Trump with charges of racism. Progressives are coming after you as an individual.

This week, an outfit called CA25 United for Progress started a boycott against a weekly newspaper, the Santa Clarita (California) Gazette. They put a defamatory summary of editorial content by the publisher online, along with links to advertisers, so other progressives could do email blasts.

Bottom line is that if you think the media, politicians and educators talk too much about racism and white supremacy, you are in league with David Duke in covering up for white supremacists. And if you favor nationalism over internationalism, you are almost certainly a "white nationalist."

Here's a quote:

"Defender of the problem of whiteness" -- Nov. 16, 2019

Sutton's remarks echo recent comments shared by KKK activist David Duke, who said white supremacy concerns were part of a "Zionist hoax." "The term is itself a lie. Millions of White activists are NOT 'supremacists' We seek NOT to oppress or destroy any race! Human Rights for all -- EVEN FOR WHITE PEOPLE! Stop antiWhite racism!" Duke tweeted.

This is inane. There is NOTHING connected to a Zionist conspiracy or millions of white activists in anything they quoted. Though there were a couple of "trigger words" in the newspaper. I was kind of surprised that the authors included the David Duke libel, in particular, because they had resisted truncating quotes in a way that could have made the editorials in the newspaper sound awful.

But what they DID say was awful enough.

In my dreams, I would love to see people who write attacks like this aimed at destroying lives forced to state and defend their own views. And forced to state their support for, or to disavow, progressive extremists and extremist positions.

For example, does CA25 United for Progress support typical classes and other educational programs on The Problem of Whiteness?

Whether they support these kinds of classes or not, do they concede that this topic (as presented in schools, etc.) goes way beyond white supremacist domestic terrorism and that they, therefore, misrepresented the meaning of "the problem of whiteness" as mentioned in the little weekly newspaper they are trying to shut down?

Getting deeper into "problem of whiteness" theory, does CA25 United for Progress believe that Students of Color who take science classes are race traitors and that their white teachers should be hunted? They need to take a stand.

CA25 United for Progress got an elected representative to support their libel, too.

Assemblywoman Christy Smith, representing the 38th district, expressed support for a boycott of the Gazette today. "I will no longer be promoting my official state activities, nor sponsoring paid campaign advertising in Santa Clarita Gazette and Free Classifieds," she wrote on her Facebook page.

Assemblywoman Smith invoked Sutton's own complaints about "white privilege." "I'm exercising my 'white privilege,' the privilege of moving money, marshaling resources, and saying no more," she wrote. "I urge anyone who supports this publication with your ad dollars to do the same. Let's show our neighbors we stand with them."

They are destroying a neighbor. He didn't do anything to hurt his neighbors.


Back to The New York Times

I think the main topic of last week's post, the decision of the NYT to devote the next two years to the topic of the President's "racism", is going to be an enduring one. I thought it might be a good idea just to have a place to leave some links. We can add to the list over time. This post also includes the Codevilla piece now in the sidebar. It relates to the kind of attack described just above.

In the comments, there was a link to a piece by Sarah Hoyt about other publications rolling hard, hard left then dying.

This preceded the piece by Scott McKay that J.J. Sefton linked suggesting that Dean Baquet has killed the New York Times.

Sharyl Attkisson said,

The takeaway?

The NYT says it is mapping out a narrative in advance of any naturally-occurring, true news events, and plans to shape all natural-occurring, true news events so that they are reported in the context of racism. This is what they believe their readers want.

In Emergency Meeting New York Times Editor promises never to tell the truth again.
Heh.

And have you noticed that The New York Times grew out of slavery?

Richard Fernandez:

The NYT is deciding what is going to happen tomorrow. Always selling something, and it's not the paper.

Ace picked up a great piece by Julie Kelly at American Greatness. Plus one that preceded the "emergency meeting". This "racism" business did not start with the "emergency meeting".

Via J.J. Sefton: No, America was not built on slavery.

August 22, Ace summarized the Rasmussen poll which found that a majority of likely voters thought that most reporters are trying to block Trump's agenda.

They don't seem to have asked if Trump is a racist. Though the NYT story from last week may have played some part in the survey results.

Also via J.J. Sefton, the 1519 project: European helps natives take downs a mass-murdering cult. Cortez was no angel, but he was bold.

Who benefits from the 1619 Project?

The Pulitzer Center has already put out lesson plans for teachers on the 1619 Project.

New York Times blasted in (not by) the Chicago Tribune.


Hope you are having a better week than the New York Times. And hope you have a great weekend.

15 So, using the N word is a call to violence now? Does that mean that if a white person uses it with a POC, they deserve to be shot by the POC? Is that what this is saying?

Conversely, if a POC uses the N word with another POC, does the first POC deserve to be shot because he is defending himself from the violence of the word?


Alternately, if a POC uses a word to denigrate a white person, does that POC person deserve to be shot?

There were wild horses in the Americas at the same time as the Indians, before the Spanish got here. The Indians probably exterminated them for food. Same as they did all the large mammals that were here. North America used to have a large lion, a ground sloth, mammoths, and more.

Alien invasion story by Niven and Pournelle.

Aliens were actually genetically engineering herd beasts, who resemble elephants, who escaped from slavery. Part of the modification was to give them hands on the end of their trunks. Interesting book.

In all honesty, what is their endgame here?

It appears to be full on race war.

That pyramid is just lunatic. It reads like something a paranoid schizophrenic would whip-up out of his/her ever circling thoughts.

Who knew Charles Manson would become the new patron saint of the Democrat Party?

Helter Skelter, anyone?

Crazy white people encouraging race war so POCs can do their dirty work and then they, the "Elite Enlightened White Progtards" can come out on top and rule.

Step One: Race War

Step Two: ???????????

Step Three: White Libtards Rule All!!!!!1111!!!


Do they really think when Antifa starts the violence that people are just gonna sit there and say:

"Okay, your terrible anger is so righteous, that I deserve to be beaten, killed, whatever. Just get on with it."

It is to laugh....bitterly. Read some history, a-holes.


I can see Blue States and cities becoming Antifa run crap holes. But everywhere else?

Nope.

I guess we're getting a de facto divorce in any event.

Hey, FBI, any time you lazy fucks actually want to do your jobs and handle Antifa like you handle the KKK, instead of trying to commit sedition against President Trump, i9t would be appreciated.

The irony is that much of Niven's SF, and the stuff he did with Pournelle, seem tailor-made for films: They are ferociously visual, with neat flashes of real humor and dynamite action scenes. But almost nothing of his, or theirs, has even been adapted for TV or movies.

Exception: the animated Star Trek episode, "The Slaver Weapon." Niven himself adapted it from his own long short story, putting in Spock, Sulu, and Uhura for the puppeteer alien and the married human couple in the original who are captured by kzinti determined to find a new weapon and thus start a new interstellar war.

It's on YouTube. Go find it.

Right; I think the director was color-blind, or something like that.

I originally saw "Slaver Weapon" when it was new. When I lived at home. With no color TV. So they were just another shade of gray. It was the story that gripped me. When I later read the short story, I marveled at how well Niven adapted the tale to the short visual format.

"Here's the truth," he said. "Life begins at conception. Government is too big. Our taxes are too high. And our car insurance is too expensive. President Trump is doing a great job. Facts matter more than feelings. The Second Amendment is self-explanatory. And as a doctor, I can assure you there are only two genders."

Funny thing, 20 years ago the warm-mongers were bitching because the noble indigenous tribes were burning down the rain forest in order to clear land for food crops. And since rain forest soil is generally red acidic soil, the crops would thrive for the first year on the ashes of the burned trees. But afterwards, the crops would fail, as the previous year's crop had eaten up all the nutrients.

So the tribes would move on to ANOTHER patch of land and burn it down. Rinse and repeat.

NBC News "investigated" Epoch Times, a pro-Trump publication and asked "troubling questions" about it.

And then right on cue, Facebook decided to no longer accept ad buys from Epoch Times, cuz, well according to a "real" news source like NBC, Epoch Times is fake news. And since Fake News is bad, Facebook has banned it.

======

omg. I've been watching NBC and MSNBC for laughs and I saw those wild-eyed reports about the Epoch Times. You could do one of those in a heartbeat against MSNBC I need hardly say.

The silliness and gullibility of Facebook make you wonder how they survive -- I guess by being a monopoly.

174 So the tribes would move on to ANOTHER patch of land and burn it down. Rinse and repeat.

Moving back closer to the theme of this post, I see the Pre Columbian American chicken (turkey?) still has some life left in it. So...

Charles Mann's 1491 suggested that the Amazonian tribes had turned the forest into a vast game-park. I don't know if there were any lost cities like the Maya had (cf. "Lost City of Z") but they may not have needed them.

So semi nomadic villagers would have decided on a pattern of migration over the last ten thousand years: burn this place and move, come back in five years when the soil had recovered.

Modern Brasil, they can't do that, because there are cities and ranches in the way.

I agree with that but I would add that there are two kinds of people-there are those who embrace life as it really is and love humanity and want to see it propagated and nurtured. Then there are those who prefer to live in a dark and morbid fantasy and hate the human race as it actually is and wish it to disappear into sterility and fruitlessness.

There was also the well-documented [even before the decipherment, anyone could read the pictures] shift to total war between the Maya cities. And - this was my theory - the ahauob [kings] had gotten into debt with their own nobles, to finance the wars. You don't need a currency to make promises you can't keep.

Read the history of the Spanish Civil War. It's disturbingly similar to our present situation. The Reds thought that they'd turned the corner into power, and began attacking churches, killing clergy and political opponents, and implementing far-left policies in an effort to make their power absolute. Think "Portland" on steroids.

It's curiously difficult to find books on the Spanish Civil War, I suspect because it makes the Reds look bad. The Reds probably would have won, had Stalin not ordered the Republicans - i.e., the Communists, because make no mistake, that's what they were - to exterminate the anarchists (POUM), who were on their side.

238 Emmie I've long hesitated to point it out but many people [a working majority in many areas] are just, practically speaking, stupid and misinformed on public policy - and have/are wreaking enormous damage on others [of which they're unaware, due to there being no press, and no political party actively opposed to the idiocy].


Good friend's sister, a typical leftist passionate ignoramus, was shocked when O-care caused her insurance premiums to skyrocket. Reaction? Blame the insurance companies!* Ya know, they just decided to hike rates by 4OO% all of a sudden.


Why I always shake my head when people here talk about idiots "learning their lesson" - what? Nope. The opposite. They don't inflict their damage because they're thoughtful, analytical, or informed. Thus their reaction to self-inflicted damage will be as stupid as their initial action.

239 Read the history of the Spanish Civil War. It's
disturbingly similar to our present situation. The Reds thought that
they'd turned the corner into power, and began attacking churches,
killing clergy and political opponents, and implementing far-left
policies in an effort to make their power absolute. Think "Portland" on
steroids.



It's curiously difficult to find books on the Spanish Civil War, I
suspect because it makes the Reds look bad. The Reds probably would have
won, had Stalin not ordered the Republicans - i.e., the Communists,
because make no mistake, that's what they were - to exterminate the
anarchists (POUM), who were on their side.

Just as in the Revolution, and the Civil War, we are broken into thirds.

In the Rev war? 1/3 wanted the King, 1/3 wanted their own country, 1/3 wanted to stay out of the fight.

Civil War? same deal.

Right now? 1/3 Conservatives, 1/3 VOCAL Lefties, and 1/3 just want to stay out of the fight.

But the Left is FORCING them to chose sides, and in fact, are putting them into the enemy category.

Yup....after the Nationalists would take a town from the Reds, they would assemble the men and woman in the town and those in any form of uniform of the leftist groups would be taken aside and shot. Then any men in civilian clothes would have to show their shoulders and if they had the Mauser bruise from shooting a rifle, they would be taken aside and shot. Any other civilians which were either known leftists or government types would be locked up, some until they died behind barbed wire in the late 1960's and early 70's.

Everyone else was free to go as long as they behaved themselves or were denounced later due to their war crimes.

It's curiously difficult to find books on the Spanish Civil War, I suspect because it makes the Reds look bad.

But their weak point has been that they need some sort of moral cause before they torture and destroy someone. So they called people "racist" and didn't get their self-appointed sacrifice to step forward and get destroyed by the mob. Now they are stepping it up to see who they can goad into subjecting themselves to their wrath.

It's not clear at all to me that Franco & Co. were fascists. I think that their appellation - Nationalists - is about right, people who were alarmed by the leftist lurch of Spanish politics.

Now the traditional leftist response to that assertion was that Mussolini and later Hitler supported Franco, so that made him a fascist. Of course, by that standard, Roosevelt and Churchill were communists because they supported Stalin.

389 It's not clear at all to me that Franco & Co. were fascists. I think that their appellation - Nationalists - is about right, people who were alarmed by the leftist lurch of Spanish politics.

Now the traditional leftist response to that assertion was that Mussolini and later Hitler supported Franco, so that made him a fascist. Of course, by that standard, Roosevelt and Churchill were communists because they supported Stalin.
Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at August 24, 2019 02:31 PM (FNsjY)

You're on to something. Franco didn't go all in on the Holocaust; in fact it was the opposite. I believe Spain provided thousands of visas.
But he did kill and imprison political enemies. I think we Americans have to understand sometimes that that is how the game is plaid pretty much everywhere but here.

At least not yet.

They aren't ad hoc, they have plausible deniability. Antifa is the militia of the Democratic party and I would say the Democrats and leftists are organized wouldn't you?

They control the courts, the schools, universities, colleges, bureaucracy, increasingly the corporations, Hollywood and the media.

As for warriors those can be trained to a minimal standard in 2-3 months. 6-9 months to improve that. This has been done many times in the past and the weapons and training are the smallest part of it.

And they do have ex-military types in their groups and the gangs have been sending their members into the military for training. Estimates are that 10% of gang members now have military training.

400 I think Franco did some pretty fancy footwork. He accepted support from Mussolini and later Hitler, but then again he was up against forces supported by Stalin, and no one else would support him. In fact, Blum in France, a socialist himself, strongly opposed Franco. So he took what support he could get.

Having done that, and later won, he did not join Mussolini and Hitler afterwards, much to their annoyance, he did not participate in the Holocaust, he did not invade any other countries, he did not hold out Spaniards as a superior people, he did not (AFAIK) try to run Spanish industry.

So it seems to me he played Mussolini and Hitler, pulled his country back from the socialist/ communist brink, and kept his country out of war.

"Real Time" host Bill Maher minced no words Friday night regarding the news that Republican megadonor and billionaire philanthropist David Koch had died at age 79 following a long battle with cancer.

"Fuck him. I'm glad he's dead," Maher said.

"And now, some funeral news to report. Yesterday David Koch of the zillionaire Koch brothers died of prostate cancer," Maher said during his opening monologue, sparking some applause from his mostly liberal audience.

"I guess I'm going to have to re-evaluate my low opinion of prostate cancer."

The HBO star joked that Koch's family expressed gratitude that he "lived long enough to see the Amazon catch fire" and that condolences poured in "from all the politicians he owned."

405 I think we one can give the same credence to the lefts description of Franco as that of Pinochet and the troubles in Chile. I grew up hearing only, and believing, what a monster Pinochet was and with with Americas help he went around slaughtering innocent, peacful citizens going about their business, maybe some doing a little political organizing and charity work. The reality is , as we know here, much different. And subsequent polls have shown Pinochet had a huge support from the citizens, probbaly even a majority. which belied he saved the country from communism.


Franco may not have been an angel but he and his allies were fighting demons.

True, but not as virulently opposed to each other as leftists, who are oftentimes at the ragged edge of violence against each other.

Consider that Stalin not only wiped out POUM, but also Communist groups who supported Trotsky. So there's a difference between minor doctrinal disagreements and distaste on one hand with extermination on the other.

435 NaCly, I hold the people responsible, ultimately. While there has been enormous institutional degradation [esp. allowing the unaccountable judiciary to take over much of governance], there are still plenty of mechanisms available. Tea Party, Trump. But it's not a "fire-and-forget" mechanism. The rebellions at the ballot box have to be sustained, their agenda enforced, politically. The electorate has not done that/is not doing that.


Following the "news" and voting for "Republican" or "conservative" candidates *might* have worked to some extent, decades ago. Now? Being somewhat serious, actually understanding issues, working to get real info, and not giving any leeway to tribal colleagues/incumbents when they fail to lead or act - the minimum for an electorate that can enforce meaningful change. And far beyond the time, energy, interest, or ability of most people.


There's also the lack of any national outlook or concern, for most things. Not entirely new, but now - nobody in your family/'hood killed by an illegal alien DUI or raped by a thrice-deported illegal sprung from the local lock-up due to "sanctuary" laws? Your health insurance not destroyed, first time in your life, by O-care? "Not my problem". Oh - surveys will show all the right attitudes [some of these things are 8O/2O issues, would have been political death to be on the wrong side in previous America]. Incumbents fail to act, keep their promises? Meh. Not my problem.

It's a bit more difficult to express to neutral parties that the prog use "white supremacist" because "North-West European / WASP culture and peoples must be destroyed" comes across as a bit racist.

Completely correct about them being highly visual, would love to see the scenes in Footfall where the advisory council on how to deal with an alien race (thinly disguised group of IRL SF authors) discuss the Fithp and how to deal with them, not to mention having one of the best space battles ever.
