Germans Counter-Assimilate to Muslim Immigrants; Women Told to Cover Up

Posted in Egalitarianism / Culture Wars, European Union, Immigration on June 29th, 2015

James Kirkpatrick: “If a church in the traditionally Catholic area of Bavaria told women to watch how they dress, the media reaction would make it one of the biggest stories in the world. But these are Muslims, so there has been no reaction. The “deeply held” social positions of leftists, from gay rights to feminism, are easily abandoned when they conflict with the values of the Third World–because the real goal is eradicating traditional Western Civilization itself.

The NeoCons’ Confederate Problem—And America’s

Posted in Egalitarianism / Culture Wars on June 29th, 2015

Paul Gottfried: It is not so much blacks who seem offended by the Battle Flag (in South Carolina as much as 40% of the black inhabitants are content to leave it at the Capitol) as it is the national MSM—and above all the neoconservatives. They have long stood out from other Republicans and members of Conservatism Inc. by virtue of the intensity of their loathing for the white South, springing from the ethnically parochial culture in which they grew up.

None of this need surprise us. The persistent neoconservative prejudice against the South sprang from the ethnically parochial culture in which the older generation of neoconservatives grew up. In my youth, I was struck by the malice with which New York Jewish visitors to Florida described their road trips through the land of “rural bigots.” Next to the Germans, whom they assured me—the child of Austrian Jewish immigrants—were all Nazis, these Southern “anti-Semites” were the most unpalatable humans they were forced to share the planet with.

Neoconservative beneficiary National Review Editor Rich Lowry referred in a recent column to “institutionally racist backwater” that was the white South before both government reconstruction efforts and the influx of Northern suburbanites redeemed it. That is a polite way of expressing the anti-Southern bigotry that I heard from New York Jews in the 1950s, before the South ceased to be the South.

Handful of holdout tribes dig in against gay marriage

Posted in Egalitarianism / Culture Wars on June 29th, 2015

Blacks and Muslims are definitely higher on the totem pole than gays, but I’m not sure about Native Americans.

“Tribal laws of the two largest Native American tribes in the United States prohibit gay marriage, as do the laws of nine other smaller tribes.

“The Navajo and Cherokee Nations, the first and second largest tribes respectively, together have about 600,000 members. The nine smaller tribes that ban gay marriage have another 350,000 members. These tribes all either define marriage as between a man and a woman or explicitly prohibit same-sex marriage, according to the Associated Press (AP).

“Since 2011, six of the eleven tribes revisited and upheld their preexisting legal definitions of marriage as between a man and a woman, AP researchers found.”

IF YOU CAN’T TESTIFY BEFORE YOUR PEER, YOU CAN’T BE WESTERN.

IF YOU CAN’T TESTIFY BEFORE YOUR PEER, YOU CAN’T BE WESTERN.

—“I want to give people the language to force other people to speak
truthfully. Because that’s our [the West’s] evolutionary strategy. That’s
what we do. The problem is: we spoke truth for so long, for a whole bunch
of reasons, and they [high functioning non-Westerner‘s] came in and
attacked our school system. [They took our history out.] They took our grammar out, which is [how we speak] logic. They took our logic [out]. They took our rhetoric out, which is standing [and orating] in front of people. If you can’t practice giving testimony in front of a jury, [then] you can’t be Western. We don’t know how to call people liars anymore. We’re ashamed to call people liars. We felt guilty?”— Curt Doolittle. The Right Stuff. 2015

Wikimedia, Microsoft’s Bing search engine, reddit, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation each announced plans to protect their site visitors by using secure HTTPS connections by default

Posted in Internet Freedom, Privacy on June 18th, 2015

Congratulations to Wikimedia, Microsoft’s Bing search engine, and reddit for announcing this week their intention to switch their websites over to encrypted HTTPS connections by default.

Using an HTTPS connection helps protect the privacy of what people are doing online—making them more willing to read and write about controversial topics. It stops network operators from easily snooping on users’ reading habits, profiling the users’ activity within sites, invisibly altering or censoring web site content, or even injecting malware.

Curt: Islamic Law

Posted in Austrian School / Libertarian Theory, Crime / Punishment / Justice Theory, Egalitarianism / Culture Wars on June 17th, 2015

the problem is that in practice it very much matters that Jewish and Islamic law is so substantially different from Western common and continental law. Particularly in that western law is universal and inclusive, Jewish Law is dual-ethical and arguably unethical, and Islamic law is intolerant and hostile. And both Jewish and Islamic law are separatist for the purpose of prohibiting integration.

It simply is not true that Catholic entry into America was not disastrous for the constitution or that Jewish immigration was even more so.

Aristocracy (those of us who are educated and debate the empirical consequences of these matters) are relatively irrelevant because we are not dependent upon our tribes for information. But the middle and lower classes are inversely dependent on norms and traditions and related status signals as well as peer opinion in order to act.

As such it is our lower and middle classes that demonstrate our cultural differences, and the opportunity middle and upper who parley those biases by way of votes under democracy into political power that exacerbates our differences.

Internet the monarchies we had diversity and lots of it because political power was denied as a means of status competition. And only market competition provided a means of signalling.

This is one of the most important readons why democracy has been a catastrophe for western man.

Meet the Jewish billionaires shaping the 2016 presidential election

Posted in Israel Lobby on June 15th, 2015

At least a third of the most generous 50 mega-givers were Jewish.

A quick look at the list of top political donors for 2014 reveals a striking fact: At least a third of the most generous 50 mega-givers were Jewish. In fact, contributions from Jewish billionaires and multi-millionaires dominated the top 10 spots on the list.

Striking, yet unsurprising.

White People So Racist They Don’t Notice Chinese Scamming Them on SAT

Posted in Educational Freedom, Egalitarianism / Culture Wars on June 15th, 2015

Fifteen Chinese nationals have been accused of cheating the college entrance examination system with a scheme that involved fake passports and test-taking impostors, according to a federal indictment unsealed on Thursday.

The 35-count indictment, which was returned on May 21 in the Western District of Pennsylvania, sketches out a complex scheme in which certain individuals are accused of paying impostors using fake Chinese passports to take college entrance exams, mostly at testing sites in the Pittsburgh area, including the SAT and the Test of English as a Foreign Language, or Toefl, in the hope of using them to gain admission to American colleges. . . . .

This is undoubtedly the fault of white people, probably for not being able to tell Chinese people apart.
