And their way of life is one that, frankly, is on the outs. They don’t develop apps. They don’t ask for food stamps. It probably has never occurred to them to bribe a politician. They don’t subsist by virtue of government subsidies or regulations that hamstring competitors. They aren’t illegal immigrants. They have never even gone to law school.

You Think things Are Bad Now? Just Wait until Whites are The Minority in The United States

April 15, 2014

Diversity Is Strength! It’s Also…Racially Polarizing Politics, Despite MSM Efforts To Lull Whites

By Kevin MacDonald on April 14, 2014 at 10:30pm

Maureen CraigJennifer Richeson

Maureen A. Craig and Jennifer A. Richeson

In all the Main Stream Media propaganda about the desperate need for an Amnesty/Immigration Surge bill, you never hear that the bill will speed up the day when whites are a minority. The research of Northwestern University psychologists Maureen A. Craig [Email her] (a white woman) and Jennifer A. Richeson [Email her](an African-American) shows why [On the Precipice of a “Majority-Minority” America: Perceived Status Threat From the Racial Demographic Shift Affects White Americans’ Political Ideology, Psychological Science April 3, 2014]. Shockingly, it turns out that the great majority of white Americans are not at all like neocon Ben Wattenberg who famously asserted that “The non-Europeanization of America is heartening news of an almost transcendental quality.” [The Good News Is The Bad News Is Wrong, p. 84.] In fact, white Americans are afraid of becoming a minority. Being told about their impending minority status provokes whites to endorse attitudes linked to the political Right.

The title of the Craig-Richeson paper is itself interesting. The standard dictionary definitionof “precipice” is “the brink of a dangerous or disastrous situation”—which is exactly what Cassandras have been saying about the impending minority status of whites. Giving up majority status in a democracy has obvious grave implications. No ethnic group in history has ever voluntarily become a minority. Israel, for example, is fixated on Palestinian birthrates and absolutely opposed to a “Right of Return” for dispossessed Palestinians. Given that Palestinians are already a majority in the “de facto state of Israel,” a one-state solution would mean that, if Israel remained a democracy, the Palestinians would govern. And that would mean the end of Israel as a Jewish state.

Being a minority is always problematic given the reality of ethnic conflict throughout history. This is particularly so when groups harbor historical grudges (e.g., slavery and Jim Crow for African Americans, anti-Semitism for Jews). It is especially worrisome in the case of America because the grievance industry promoted by elites in the MSM, the legal profession, and   academe systematically blames “White racism” for all the problems of non-Whites.

It’s one thing to be demonized when you are the majority, but a far different thing when you are the minority.

Needless to say, despite Craig-Richeson’s use of the word “precipice”, they do not view whites’ impending minority status as problematic. Indeed, they are eager suggest ways to make Whites complacent about their impending status.

The theoretical framework for the Craig-Richeson paper emphasizes the general finding that people who feel threatened tend to adopt more conservative views. Studies show that whites adopt more conservative political views not only after terrorist events like 9/11, but also when they live closer to black Americans:

[A]n analysis of voter-registration data for Louisiana parishes revealed that the larger the percentage of Blacks in a parish, the greater the percentage of Whites who were registered as Republicans and the lower the percentage of Whites who were registered as Democrats.

But it’s still very easy for most Whites to avoid the costs of diversity and multiculturalism—”out of sight, out of mind.” The Craig-Richeson study reinforces this observation.

In their first experiment, subjects (all experiments used only whites) were told that California had become a “majority minority” state, while control subjects were told that there were now approximately as many Hispanics as blacks in the US. The experimental subjects reported they leaned more toward the Republican Party and toward more conservative opinions, and this effect was increased among subjects who lived closer to California.

In other words, people living in rural Nebraska, small town Montana or even Portland, Oregon are less worried about the disaster that is unfolding in California and many other

On The Necessity Of Upholding Standards

06 April 2014

by

In a post over at The Other McCain by Smitty, we find in the Comments section this expression of modern thinking [emphasis mine]:

…I don’t what stereotypes are doing your thinking for you, but I don’t endorse same sex marriage, or accept homosexuality because it’s cool or hip; I accept it because it has no bearing on my existence if two men or women want to couple or have sex with one another.

Here before us is one of the most popular kinds of Selfishness that pervades America Society today.

It is believed to be a noble and good attitude, and is held by Leftists and Libertarians and even some conservatives.

‘Do what thou wilt as long as you don’t prevent me from doing the same and as long as no one is murdered or physically assaulted,’ it proudly declares.

What was once an attitude primarily associated with the Me Generation has become, through a very successful propaganda / brainwashing campaign, the attitude of all generations in America.

The Truth is, the Reality is, people in a Society behaving in perverse ways, living lives that are not Normal, do have a bearing on the existence of everyone in that Society.

In order for a Society, especially a free one, to survive and prosper, the vast, vast majority of people in it must work to uphold the standards, the customs and traditions, that define it and allow it’s peoples to enjoy Freedom and Liberty.

When a Society stops upholding, maintaining, sustaining, validating, and holding to the customs and traditions and Morality that are it’s core foundation, said Society — being as all Societies are: fragile things — begins to die.  This march to death is often slow because of residual strengths built into the structure, but, like the neglected steel structure building, it will eventually collapse in on itself in a heap of rust.

America, with it’s wide areas of Freedoms and Liberty, is a Society more vulnerable than most because it has living within it an active group of people, a Fifth Column, working ceaselessly to destroy it: the Left, who are being aided gladly by those fellow Ideologues who also want to reduce America Society to rubble, such as the Mohammedins, and assisted unwittingly by those fellow Ideologues who are too blind to see that Ideology destroys everything it touches: the Libertarians.

To not care what other members of your Society are doing is criminal form of negligence, a depraved indifference.  Abnormal practices and actions that violate the standards set-up by a Society, though they start out with a small minority of practitioners, will inevitably, given Human Nature, given our Fallen State, gain wider acceptance if they do not meet with a continued disapproval by the Society.

Also, as Edmund Burke pointed out: a free Society cannot survive if the present generation does not honor those who came before it and the hard-won wisdom and stability they bequeathed it, and if it does not honor it’s obligation to future generations who depend on us not breaking ‘the whole chain and continuity of the commonwealth’.  [Reflections On The Revolution In France]

To uphold it’s standards, a Society must debate what proper means need to be implemented in order to guard it against the undermining influences of perversions [as the word is understood in it's most basic meaning] and deviations unrestrained.  Should a practice or action be outlawed?  Should it be not so proscribed, but it’s adherents shunned?  Should it be subject to Unwritten Law?  Each Society, being that it is a creature of the Culture of it’s people, must decide what is the best way to preserve Normalcy.  In doing so, it must consult it’s ancestors and make good use of Right Reason.

No Society can survive if it’s members take a hands-off attitude towards the preservation of what made it.

As Yuval Levin writes in his wonderful book, The Great Debate: Edmund Burke, Thomas Paine, And The Birth Of Right And Left, in an explanation of Mr. Burke’s thought: ‘human beings are born into a web of obligations’.  To the past we owe a well-earned Respect and to the future we owe the hard work necessary to provide them with a future of Freedom and Liberty.

A man full of warm, speculative benevolence may wish his society otherwise constituted than he finds it, but a good patriot and a true politician always considers how he shall make the most of the existing materials of his country. A disposition to preserve and an ability to improve, taken together, would be my standard of a statesman. Everything else is vulgar in the conception, perilous in the execution.

The Demise of Chief Wahoo

Cleveland Indian fans should be saddened to learn that the beloved Chief Wahoo is on his way out, having been designated as politically incorrect by liberals who revel in their ability to ban anything they please on any foolish pretext. In cowardly response to moonbat tantrums, the cheerful cartoon Indian is getting replaced by a boring block C as the team’s primary logo.

Chief Wahoo isn’t going away. At least not yet. He’ll still have a home on the Indians’ jersey sleeves.

But the Chief is well on his way to the reservation. From there he will vanish entirely, rendering our culture just a little more drab, and a little more monochromatically politically correct.

For now Chief Wahoo is still on the home caps too…

In that sense, the impact of the logo redesignations would be more symbolic than practical.

But symbolism matters, especially when discussing Chief Wahoo…

[T]he logo redesignations would have ripple effects because media outlets — including “SportsCenter” and newspapers — would start using the block-C, instead of Wahoo, as their visual shorthand for the team.

Wahoo set off on his Trail of Tears a few years ago:

The franchise removed Wahoo from its road cap in 2011 and from its home batting helmet in 2013. At last summer’s All-Star Game FanFest — a merch-fest where teams generally slap all their logos on every product imaginable — Wahoo was nowhere to be found. Go to the Indians’ website and you’ll find the block-C near the top of the home page with Wahoo less prominently used. Several reporters have noted that the block-C has a much larger presence than Wahoo at the team’s spring training facility too.

The priggish liberals at ESPN unsurprisingly want the Chief banned immediately on the grounds that “ethnic caricatures such as Wahoo are harder and harder to defend in a modern, diverse society.” Next they will demand the team change its name.

Why should anyone care what logo is on the hat of a dying city’s baseball team? Because every time the totalitarian Left takes an inch, they move on to take the next inch. No matter how absurd the battles are, if normal Americans keep losing them, we will wake up one day soon to find our culture no longer exists.

The removal of Eich is about fascism.

it’s about book burning, compelling obeisance to, as Jame Surowiecki put it, “a universal ideology” in a manner so bald that even those who might gain politically in the short term from it are horrified by its crudity. Perceptive gays understand now, if they hadn’t noticed before, that a whole mechanism now exists for persecuting people whose views are deemed unacceptable. Today it is directed against Eich; once it was directed against Summers; on other occasions it was employed against Clarence Thomas. But sooner or later, probably sooner, they understand it will be directed against them — or us — or someone.  And if it can get a corporate CEO who is widely regarded as the father of Javascript it can get pretty darned anyone.  Belmont Club » Eich

North Carolina Teacher Tells Elementary School Student Her “Hero” Can’t Be Jesus…

Unsurprisingly, the parents have a problem with this.

COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A parent is speaking out after she said her daughter’s teacher rejected a rough draft of her paper. The subject, her hero, Jesus.

Heather Watts said her daughter attends second grade at Cerro Gordo Elementary School in Columbus County. Watts said the teacher asked her 8-year-old daughter Ryleigh, “can’t you write about something different?”

“I think she should have freedom to write about what she wants to write about,” the disgruntled mother said. “If she wants to write about Jesus, she should write about Jesus.”

Watts said this question is threatening her daughter’s First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Only Liberal’s Feelings Matter

March 18, 2014

Whiny Liberals and their obsession with “feeling included”

Let me start with a basic truth any reasonable person can grasp. NO ONE is ever going to feel included all the time, nor should they. But, Liberals are not, shall we say, exactly reasonable. Especially when they feel like they are not included!

An upcoming conference organized by Stanford University’s Anscombe Society called “Communicating Values: Marriage, Family & the Media” has been dubbed “hate speech” by the college’s graduate-level student government, which refused to allow any of its student fee-funded budget to support the event.

The Anscombe Society is a conservative student group centered around traditional marriage and family values; it also encourages chastity, and tackles subjects such as sexual integrity and pornography.

According to the minutes of the student government meeting on March 5, a large group of angry students attended to protest the conference and its request for funding.

Again, a case of Liberals screaming for tolerance while giving none, that is old news. What is really revealing is what the offended whiners have to say

“An event such as this would be a negative event, in schools that have negative events there is a statistically significant increase in suicide.”

Every event is “negative” to someone. Again, the Liberal demands only those things they approve of take place. Narcissistic much?

“ … makes homosexuals on campus feel less than equal to others.”

Kleenex?

“ … this event is to help people better convey hateful messages … the conference is to help better articulate their views, but it’s not better articulating, rather camouflaging discrimination and hateful messages …”

” … public schools cannot deny student group funding based on viewpoint, but enforcing viewpoint neutral policy that denies funding for hate speech is an entirely different ballgame. Even if Stanford was a public university, it would be perfectly legal to deny funding to events that make LGBT community feel unwelcome. It would be the same for Stanford to hold a conference on why heterosexuality is abhorrent, and to strip the right away from heterosexuals, and it’s equally unacceptable to host a conference to strip homosexuals of their rights.”

And, of course, Liberals will decide what is and isn’t hate speech

” … there is a lot of feeling espousing the view that marriage is between man and woman is, at the least discriminatory, at worst hate speech.”

No, it is the foundation of society for many folks. This is an opinion, if you have a different take, please feel free to engage in debate rather than thuggish tactics

“This event is small and exclusive, this doesn’t make us feel in community welcome, we don’t feel included.”

Ah yes, my personal favorite. But I don’t feel welcome! Yeah? So what? Welcome to the real world. Of course if this student wanted an event that would not make other people feel welcome, I doubt he or she would give a damn. I guess Liberal feelings are “more equal”.

No More Christianity Allowed in Public America.

March 6, 2014

Moonbats Attack Cross Commemorating World War I Vets

The eradication of Christianity from American culture and history proceeds:

A humanist advocacy group [the American Humanist Association ] has filed a federal lawsuit to remove a cross-shaped World War I memorial in Prince George’s County [Maryland], alleging the display violates the First Amendment.

The First Amendment actually protects religious expression. Next authoritarian moonbats will use the Second Amendment to justify seizing guns.

“We are certainly recommending coming up with a monument inclusive of all religious groups,” said Monica Miller, a lawyer with the association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center.

Yet again we see that in liberal upside-down world, “inclusive” means “exclusive of Christianity.” Counting all the Americans who ever lived, well over 90% have been Christians. Dictating that Christianity can be no more in evidence than hostile alien religions like Islam is the same as excluding it.

The 40-foot-tall concrete memorial was erected in 1925 by the American Legion to commemorate the 49 men of Prince George’s County who died during World War I.

We’ll see if the government they died for will defend their memories by defending the memorial they lie under.

If liberalism prevails, people born today may live in a world where Americans know no more about Christianity — which substantially provided the foundation upon which American civilization was constructed — than they do about Zoroastrianism. Except of course they will know that it was bad.

The more you try to figure out liberals’ dedication to erasing Christianity, the more it will send chills up your spine.

UPDATE on German Christian Family and Deportation

Farris says, “God Granted Victory,” The Romeike Family Stays!

March 4, 2014  |  Author: 

The Romeike family

Less than 48 hours after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear their case, sentencing them to almost certain deportation, the Romeike family has received a reprieve.

The Home School Legal Defense Association confirmed today that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has granted the German homeschooling family “indefinite deferred status,”allowing them to remain in the United States as long as they want.

“This is an incredible victory that can only be credited to our Almighty God,” Michael Farris, the HSLDA attorney representing the family, wrote on the group’s Facebook page.“We also want to thank those of [you] who spoke up on this issue—including that long ago White House petition. We believe that the public outcry made this possible while God delivered the victory.”

Obama Hates Christian Families. Why Else Would He Sic Holder on These People?

March 5, 2014

Deporting the Wrong Kind of Immigrants

Because of the Obama Regime’s refusal to enforce immigration law (and refusal to allow states to do so), illegal alien welfare colonists continue to flood the country — driving up crime and unemployment rates, sinking hospitals into bankruptcy, making roads unsafe with reckless drunk driving, and tilting the country’s demographics in the direction of the Third World. But there are some foreigners that the Regime will go to great trouble to expel — namely those who would make a positive contribution to America by reinforcing its traditional values. For example, the Romeikes:

Uwe and Hannelore Romeike came to the United States in 2008 seeking political asylum. They fled their German homeland in the face of religious persecution for homeschooling their children.

They wanted to live in a country where they could raise their children in accordance with their Christian beliefs.

They came to the right place. That is the very purpose this civilization was founded by the Pilgrims to serve.

Except now America has been fundamentally transformed — into its opposite:

The Romeikes were initially given asylum, but the Obama administration objected – claiming that German laws that outlaw homeschooling do not constitute persecution.

The German laws in question don’t go back as far as America’s tradition of serving as a haven for oppressed Christians. They date back to the Hitler Administration.

The Obama Administration approves of them whole-heartedly:

“The goal in Germany is for an open, pluralistic society,” the Justice Department wrote in a legal brief last year. “Teaching tolerance to children of all backgrounds helps to develop the ability to interact as a fully functioning citizen in Germany.”

“Pluralistic” is libspeak for “ideologically homogeneous.” Forcing all children into government schools, even against their parents’ religious principles, is intended to ensure that everyone comes out thinking the same way — the way the government wants them to think.

On Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear the Romeike’s appeal – paving the way for the Christian family of eight to be deported.

Once back in Germany, the children will be confiscated and placed in government custody.

Obviously, our own days of legal homeschooling are numbered if authoritarian statists continue to hold sway.

When the situation gets bad enough here that the government actually secures the border because people are sneaking out instead of in, let’s hope other countries show escaping Americans more mercy than the Obama Regime has shown the Romeikes.

Arizona Law Concerning Gays and Religious Beliefs has been Misconstrued…as Usual

February 27, 2014

Well Said:

From RBA

No…this has nothing to do with “separate but equal.”  Where in the world is this nonsense coming from?

This is a very tough issue though. This law in Arizona was meant to protect small business owners who do not want to offer their services for homosexual weddings because of their conflicting religious reasons. Lawyers for activist organizations and the ACLU have been filing suits against these small businesses (florists, bakeries, photographers, chapels, etc) in multiple states and activist judges have been ordering them to participate in these weddings against their will or pay fines. Now big business is trying to put the pressure on Arizona to veto the bill because they don’t want the bad PR tied to them.  This is tyranny of religious freedom and is just another move of the minority to force artificial change on a free market system that would take care of the problem naturally.

Now, the takeaway is that the gay couples didn’t necessarily file these suits, the lawyers did…”on their behalf.” These small businesses aren’t necessarily turning away gay people just because they’re gay, just their services for homosexual weddings, which these business owners religiously disagree with. In a free market, if a business turns away clients, that’s their loss of revenue. The press (and gay activists) has made this out to be that Arizona businesses have been turning away homosexuals left and right just because they’re homosexuals, which isn’t true at all. And if the bill were to pass, no way would a large percentage of these large corporations pull out these states.  I’d love to see the crony panderers at the NFL pull the Super Bowl or American Airlines try to pull out of the state…what a bunch of cowards.

This issue is also more widespread than just Arizona and could affect other states’ reactions. A judge should never have the power to make you offer your products or services to anyone…no matter what the reason is.  Would it be fair to force a Catholic minister to perform a nudist wedding?  Would it be fair to force a black photographer take photos at a skinhead wedding?  Would it be right to force a recovering alcoholic to cater a reception at a bar?  Unless you’re judgement is cloudy, the answer to all of these is, “no.”  If the business truly is bigoted, then it should fail on its own by customers choosing not to patronize them.  It is not discriminating to turn down your services if you do not feel comfortable or morally correct in doing so.  That is your real civil right.

However, personally, I think Jan Brewer should veto this bill and come up with better legislation that protects these small businesses and their religious rights while keeping these blood-hungry lawyers away from pilfering them by using phony discrimination as a reason.

Dartmouth – Nothing but an Indoctrination Camp for Radical Communists

February 26, 2014

Dartmouth Students Demand Money, Race Quotas, Speech Restrictions, Sensitivity Brainwashing, and More

Here I was thinking of Ivy League colleges as bastions of unmitigated moonbattery. Turns out they are actually hotbeds of racist oppression — but not for long, thanks to liberal rebels:

A group of disgruntled students at Dartmouth College sent an 8-page protest letter to leaders of the Ivy League institution Monday calling for reparations for what they claim is the school’s oppressive and racist atmosphere – and threatened “physical action” if their demands are not met.

The list of demands, written by “concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students,” include:

• Racial enrollment quotas for Black and Latino students to “at least 10 percent each”

• “Ensure that 47 percent of post-doctoral students are people of color”

• “Ban the use of ‘illegal aliens, illegal immigrants, wetback’ and any racially charged term”

• Mandate cultural competency and sensitivity training for professors

• “Ask staff/faculty to use students’ and employees’ preferred gender pronouns”

• Enroll more students in the country illegally (undocumented students); and provide them free legal assistance and financial aid

• Convert ethnic studies programs into full-fledged departments

• Incorporate into each department at least one queer studies class

• Increase the interdisciplinary academic focus on sexualities

• Enact curricular changes to force students to study social justice and marginalization in depth

• Provide gender-neutral bathrooms in every building on campus

• “Create a policy with serious consequences against hate speech/crimes”

• Create a policy penalizing and discriminating against students who use the Indian mascot

• Require school’s conservative paper give up “Dartmouth” name if they use term “Indian”

At this point, no one could credibly deny that our liberal ruling class predominately features totalitarians who want to use force to impose their bizarre and nauseating ideology on every facet of human existence. I can hardly wait to see how Dartmouth incorporates a class extolling the sanctity of sexual perversion into math and engineering programs — assuming that useful fields of study still exist at top colleges.

The purpose of this grotesque list of demands is to “eradicate systems of oppression as they affect marginalized communities on this campus.” Yet if any groups are oppressed and marginalized on college campuses, it is the groups liberals demand systematic discrimination against: whites, men, normal people, et cetera.

The unnamed students go on to assert that by March 24 – the first day of spring term – Dartmouth administrators must publicly respond to each item raised in the letter with “its exact commitment to each one of its demands” and that reparations that require funds “have a monetary commitment in the 2014-2015 fiscal budget.”

If they don’t get their way, the moonbats “will be forced to physical action.”

Stop snickering. Similarly clownish liberal screwballs were a prominent feature of college campuses in the hippie era. For example, armed black students took over the Naval ROTC offices at Columbia, demanding that it be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” They actually got their way. Today one of them is the Attorney General of the United States. His radical ideology has not perceptibly matured.

The thuggish nuts who drew up the list of demands above will one day hold powerful positions in the federal government. What other kind of job would they be good for?

Micro aggression on wheels

Via The Black Sphere

Georgia officials approved a specialty license plate that features the Confederate battle flag. How long do you think it took for the “civil rights advocates” to end their tea break?

Don’t expect these race pimps to get upset about the black people killing other blacks, when there is a LICENSE PLATE TO PICKET!

The claim is that the license plate is a reminder of slavery, Jim Crow, and the Klan…all DEMOCRAT institutions.

What race-baiting black Liberals want is the complete white-washing of white Southerners’ past. Forget your history, abandon your heritage, because it any part of it is tainted in today’s politically correct world.

The Catholic church had the Crusades, Germany gassed the Jews, and so on. For blacks, no harm no foul, at least not when there are Southerners trying to be proud of their heritage. Not knowing one’s heritage can allow you to create whatever you background choose. It’s convenient for Liberal blacks to forget that Africans were sold into slavery…by other AFRICANS. And nothing has changed. Modern-day slavery black slave owners — black Liberal “leaders” like the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) — are the new Anthony Johnson’s (the first slave owner in America, and he happened to be black).

The CBC sells more blacks into slavery than all the African tribes combined.

Blacks seem to be proud of this heritage of blacks selling other blacks, embracing “African” in front of American, though 99.9 percent of blacks have never been to African and can’t tell you from what tribe they descend.

Hands off our children, Big Brother

Below is an except of this article. Read it all at the above Link.

Remember, follow the money.  If schools are government-funded, then logically  only government-approved attitudes and behaviors will be permitted.  Students  (and by extension, their families) must be tracked to make sure everyone falls  within acceptable boundaries of thought and behavior.  Dissenting opinions will  be made known to officials, and corrective measures can be taken.  I’m beginning  to think the Planet Camazotz (with the megalomaniac “IT”) from “A  Wrinkle in Time” was astoundingly prescient.

Are you freaked out yet?  I know our friends are.  That’s why they will soon  be homeschooling their youngest son.

I can’t emphasize strongly enough the need to reject government education, if  at all possible.  It is your duty as a parent to raise children, not zombies.   You’re raising the hope of the future, not its doom.  It’s time to look outside  the jail cell and see what educational alternatives you can find for your kids.   Almost anything is better than putting them in prison for eight hours a day.

Don’t forget: Children are the currency of tyrants.  You can see the evidence  right in front of you.  The government already takes too much of your income.  Tell it to get its hands off your legacy.

That Word “Empowerment”…I don’t Think It Means What Liberals Suppose

February 20, 2014

Free will and empowerment

By: Patrice Lewis

I’ve been following (on and off) a lively online discussion about whether or not people should buy Girl Scouts cookies due to the Scouts’ affiliation with Planned Parnethood.
Needless to say there are people arguing both sides of the issue, but one comment in particular caught my eye.
This commenter was responding to a mother who pulled her girls from Girl Scouts.  He or she didn’t deny any supposed affiliation with Planned Parenthood; rather, he/she seemed to defend Planned Parenthood’s influence on girls.  S/he wrote: “So you want to empower your girls by making sure they don’t know anything about sex, birth control or the most important decisions of their lives. Yeah. Ignorance of important topics is _very_ empowering.
You can’t have “respect for self” while your self is locked in a cage with no options. You can’t teach “respect for others” if you don’t respect them enough to give them all the facts and let them make their own decisions. And you’re not teaching “faith in God,” either, since you clearly don’t trust God’s gift of free will to them; you’re trying to take it back in case they actually use it.”

Girl Scouts aside, I found this comment astoundingly ignorant on the mechanics of raising children with faith.
By this person’s logic, we should never teach our children anything.  Nothing.  Zip, zilch, nada.  After all, anything we teach them might interfere with their God-given gift of free will, right?  So don’t teach a toddler to control his tantrums.  Don’t teach children not to hit.  Don’t teach kids to respect their elders.  Don’t teach teens to control their hormonal urges.  Hey, free will means a free-for-all!  Whoo-hoo!
What this person is arguing, of course, is that girls should be encouraged to act out on their sexuality (that’s the eternal interpretation of “letting them make their own decisions”).  We’re not talking legal adults here, folks; we’re talking GIRLS who are still MINORS.
Another commenter referred to family values as “medieval morality that revolves around controlling women.”  Huh?
Empowering is a buzz word progressives use to encourage girls and women to abandon all moral teachings and rut like animals.  But as the mother of teen girls, it makes a lot more sense to empower my daughters to know they must be responsible for their own decisions and that there are consequences to actions.
In another column entitled Shirley Temple’s America is No More, the author wrote: “Today’s sneering secular audiences would reflexively dismiss the film [Bright Eyes] as Norman Rockwell-ish… What such cynics really mean is that the film isn’t sufficiently depraved for modern tastes. Shirley doesn’t pole dance or “twerk.” She doesn’t do a darling little strip tease for the boys while singing “Good Ship, Lollipop.”

That’s the difference, apparently.  The Miley Cyruses of the world are “empowered.”  The Shirley Temples are not.  Abortions are empowering.  Restraint is not.

I hate to break it to people, but women hold a unique position in society: they are capable of conceiving life.  Therefore it behooves them to refrain from activities that result in being forced to make harsh decisions that will cause heartbreak no matter what.
I know feminists would love for women to be just like men, but we’re not.  Therefore I will “empower” my girls to understand that they hold the key to their future happiness in their own hands, and they need to make good choices (the essence of a simple life, if you recall) in order to live with as little heartbreak as possible.
Just some thoughts for Valentine’s Day.

People! This Ain’t About Gay Rights. It’s About Total Control!

February 16, 2014

Why Keep Feeding the Gay-Rights Tiger, Hoping to Be Eaten Last?

Posted on | February 14, 2014 

One of the things we must understand about the Left is the essentially totalitarian nature of their ambitions. There is no logical stopping point on the progressive road to the Utopia of Equality that they insist is always ahead of us, a destination never reached.

Grant all their demands today, and they will return tomorrow with a new list of demands. What do they want? More, always more.

Yesterday, a federal judge struck down Virginia’s state constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage, because obviously (a) the Fourteenth Amendment was intended for such a purpose, and (b) never mind the will of voters expressed in a referendum.

The ruling cites memorable Supreme  Court travesties – Planned Parenthood v. Casey, Lawrence v. Texas and Windsor v. U.S. — like so many mileposts on the Highway to Hell, and who can argue with such sophistry when it’s dressed up in costumes of legal precedent, bejeweled with a lot of emotional chatter about “loving, intimate and lasting relationships” and “sacred, personal choices”?

Translation: “Damn the Constitution, we’re not in Utopia yet.”

Meanwhile, in Kansas, the state House of Representatives approved a billintended to impede the March Toward Utopia in the name of “religious liberty,” inspiring  an eruption of hyperbole about “vicious discrimination” and “anti-gay segregation.”

Willkommen, Herr Chamberlain. Welcome to Munich. Today you will cede the Sudetenland. Tomorrow, we’ll demand the world.”

Hate Drives The Leftist Commie Liberal Establishment

February 12, 2014

Hate is the Force that Gives the Left Meaning

Posted byDaniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog
(Emphasis mine. ZTW)
The American left has never had it this good. It has never had two terms of an unabashed and uncompromising leftist in the White House dedicated to its agenda functioning as a dictator without the military uniform, making and unmaking laws at a whim, siccing the IRS and Federal prosecutors on political enemies and transforming the country at a breathtaking pace.
Obama is what generations of the left have dreamed of and worked toward. This is the flicker of hopethey kept alive after JFK’s assassination, the Nixon years, Carter’s collapse and the long stretch of Reaganomics. This is what Bill Clinton robbed them of prematurely by gauging his actions against the polls instead of blasting full steam ahead regardless of what the public wanted.
The left finally has its Un-American tyranny. So why is it so angry?
Watch MSNBC or browse any left-wing site and you see a level of anger that would make you think that Al Gore had just conceded or Nixon had just won reelection. There’s more anger in the privileged circles of the left than in the political rearguard of the Tea Party.
That anger trickles from the top down. Obama’s interview with Bill O’Reilly was yet another opportunity for the most powerful man in the country to blame a vast right wing conspiracy. A day doesn’t pass without another email from Obama, his wife, Sandra Fluke or Joe Biden warning that without another five or ten dollar contribution, the “right” will take over America.
The left has unchallenged control over the government, academia and the entertainment industry and yet it talks as if the country is 5 seconds away from Sarah Palin marching into Washington D.C. at the head of an army of Duck Dynasty fans to outlaw abortion.
The apocalyptic political paranoia and the uncontrolled outbursts of rage haven’t changed much since 2003. Ten years later, the ideologues in power still act as if George W. Bush is serving out his fourth term. Every day on MSNBC, a stew of conspiracy theories about oil companies, Israel, the Koch Brothers, Wal-Mart and Karl Rove leaves a slimy trail across the television screen.
On the internet, manufactured outrage has become the only progressive stock in trade. Did Jerry Seinfeld say that he values humor over racial quotas? He’s a racist. Did an ESPN magazine out a compulsive liar who also happened to be pretending to be a woman? Lock him up. Did Mike Huckabee say something that could be misinterpreted with enough ellipses and out of context “Twitterized” quotes? Before you know it, he’s a sexist pig.
Pageviews are the obvious profit motive behind all this and yet it says something deeply disturbing about a progressive readership that eats up hate and doesn’t react to anything positive. The rash of fake hate crimes feeds into that same perverse need for an enemy to hate and fight. The left used to pretend that it wanted to do something positive. But now that it has the power, it can’t stop searching for someone to hate instead.
The left is more comfortable being angry than being anything else; it finds it easier to rally the troops against something than for something so that even its triumphs only lead to more anger. The MSNBC tweet about an interracial Cheerios commercial was revealing of a deeper problem within the left. It was assumed that the MSNBC audience wouldn’t care about an interracial ad unless it could somehow pretend to “spite” the right by watching it.
Obama’s awkward stumble from cause to cause, letting the old Bush policies run on Autoplay unless a crusade kicks in, as it eventually did on gay marriage and illegal immigration, is indicative of the problem with the left’s governing style. As with an interracial Cheerios commercial, it cares less about gay marriage or legalizing illegal aliens than it does about stirring up conflict.
Like an overgrown teenager for whom music or clothes aren’t about enjoying life or expressing an identity, but about upsetting and offending his or her parents, the left needs the negative validation of the right to be secure in its bad choices. Without that negative feedback to affirm its rebellion, its pet causes no longer seem all that compelling or meaningful.
That is another reason why the left began neglecting some of its bread and butter issues after Obama won. Aside from the need to protect its own man, it wasn’t really all that interested in closing Gitmo, gay marriage or opposing the War in Iraq. The things it wants to do are never as important to it as its obsessive need to feel that it is fighting against the right.
For all the Obama Worship, the left is more united by hatred for Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz or any other conservative villain of the month than by its support for its own leaders. It derives its identity more from the things that it is against, the middle class, the country, the businessman, the white male, than from the things that it is for.
The left’s sense of self is strongest when it is attacking, not when it is inspiring, when it is destroying, not when it is building.
Deprived of an external enemy, its ideologues carve out narrow orthodoxies and denounce each other for violating them. When the right and the center have been purged, the purges of the left begin and don’t end until there is nothing left except one tyrant-guru and his terrified minions. Or until some outside force throws a pot of cold water on the quarreling and shrieking acolytes brawling over minor points of doctrine.
The small scale bloodsport documented in the outward reaches of feminism by The Nation in its article “Feminism’s Toxic Twitter Wars” as transgender rights activists denounce Eve Ensler for excluding them by using the word “Vagina” and black feminists denounce white feminists for ignoring their concerns. This is what the left begins doing when it has free time on its hands. It doesn’t stop fighting. Instead its wars become pettier power struggles over points of doctrine.
When all enemies to the right have been eliminated, the left doesn’t find peace. Its ideology is a weapon, its gurus are egomaniacs and its followers joined to fight. When it wins in an arena, whether it’s academia or entertainment, the winners begins warring against each other proving that even in an ideological vacuum, its ideology remains a destructive force whose followers would rather denounce and destroy, than educate and enlighten.
As a victorious parasite writes its own obituary, a successful left is a threat to its own existence and the only thing saving the left from the violent disintegration into its own insanity is the right.
Hating the right is the only thing that keeps the left together. When it doesn’t have Nixon to kick around anymore, it dissolves into a wet puddle of goo. If it didn’t have Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney and every other figure who took his turn starring in their grim theater of the Two Minutes Hate, it would revert back to the petty infighting of a thousand minor eccentric causes.

The left needs to believe in a vast right-wing conspiracy. It needs the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove, Evangelical Christians, AIPAC, oil companies, defense contractors and every other element of its conspiracy theories to keep its gurus and followers focused on the “real” threat instead of purging each other for tone policing, insufficient privilege checking and any other outrage of the week.
Like the Salafists shooting and shelling each other in Syria, the ranks of the left are filled with dogmatic and intolerant fanatics whose only goal in life is the absolute victory of their point of view. Their mutual fanaticism and aggrieved sense of victimhood gives them more in common with each other and that very commonality is the source of their mutual hatred. Only they can understand each other well enough to truly want to kill each other as no outsider possibly can.

Hate is the force that gives the left meaning. It isn’t hope that animates its leaders and thinkers, but the darker side of human nature that calls on them to destroy and to kill. That dark side is why the left’s victories end in tragedies, why the red flags are painted with blood and when its followers have run out of enemies to kill, they turn on each other and destroy their own movements with firing squads, gulags and guillotines. 

The left finds its identity not in its utopian visions, but in the things and people it wishes to destroy. Only by knowing what they hate, do its followers know who they are.

Liberalism: An Empty, Artificial, Godless Religion

February 12, 2014

The Secular Religion of the Left

Posted byDaniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog
(Emphasis mine. ZTW)
For most of human history, men and women have derived their moral dimension of life from the family and religion. Both of those are now dead or dying in the West under the influence of its new moral and ethical system. That system is one that we know in its various forms as the left.
The left can be summed up as moral materialism. It is a secular religion that claims to add a moral dimension to materialism. Its obsessions are largely economic, from its early class warfare focus to its modern environmentalism. Even its racial politics code class warfare by skin color.
Kill off religion and what do you have left? The answer can be seen in China. You’re left with materialism and family interests.. Cast off the shackles of the family for individualistic consumerism and you’re left with nothing except materialism as can be seen in any major Western city.
Modern urban man is much too “smart” for religion. At least his own. He wants to add an ethical dimension to life without having to believe in anything except the sense of fairness that he already has, but which he does not realize is not nearly as valid objectively as it is subjectively in his inner emotional reality.
And that is what the left is. It strips away everything except that egotistical sense that things should be run more fairly with predictably unfair results.
Liberalism, and the milder flavors of the left, provide a permission slip for materialism by elevating it through political activism. This is the philosophical purpose of environmentalism’s green label. It tells you that you are a good person for buying something and soothes the moral anxieties of an urban class with no coherent moral system except the need to impose an ethical order on the consumerism that defined their childhood, their adolescence and their adult life.
Those most in need of the moral system of materialism are the descendants of the displaced, whether by immigration to the United States or migration within the United States from rural to urban areas, who have become detached from a large extended family structure that once sustained them.
Their grandparents had already loosened their grip on religion and as the family disintegrated, materialism took its place. Their grandparents worked hard to provide for their children, but the children no longer saw maintaining the family as a moral activity. Sometimes they didn’t even bother with a family. They became lonely individuals looking for a collective. A virtual political family.
Liberalism fills the missing space once inhabited by religion and the family. It provides a moral and ethical system as religion did and the accompanying sense of purpose and its state institutions replace and supplant the family. It does both of these things destructively and badly as its institutions forever try to patch social problems created by the disintegration of the family and its ideas provide too few people with a sense of purpose of a meaningful life.
And yet it isn’t entirely to blame for this state of affairs. The left has actively tried to destroy the family and religion, but the American liberal was until recently less guilty on both charges. His main crime was collaborating with the left while refusing to acknowledge its destructive aims. The process by which the displacement of liberal ideas and their replacement by the ideas of the far left is nearly complete. The American liberal is now an aging relic. In his place is the resentful radical.
The process that led to this state of affairs isn’t the left’s fault either. Even if it’s not for lack of trying. In some ways the left isn’t the problem, it’s a symptom of the problem. Its ability to fundamentally transform people is limited. The transformation that has occurred is because of the choices that people have been led into making trading religion and family for a dead end materialism. Those choices evolved organically from the natural direction of society and technology.
And into that empty space, the left came. It dominates because there is nothing else to fill that space. It can only be truly resisted by cultural groups that have maintained hold of family and religion. Without that sense of purpose, there is only the endless baffled retreat of the Republican Party.

Liberalism appeals more to the middle class and the upper class because it is a religion of materialism. It makes very little sense to those who don’t have material things. The underclass might embrace the harsher populism of the left, but shows little interest in its larger collectivist philosophy. The underclass is losing family and religion at a faster rate than the upper class, but it clings to what it has and finds meaning in it. It may be nakedly materialistic, but it doesn’t believe that it is too smart for religion or too individualistic for family. It has many flaws, but arrogance isn’t one of them.
Ennobling consumerism is a difficult task. The left doesn’t come anywhere close to succeeding at it. Instead it makes it more expensive and raises the entry barriers for everything by working to eliminate cheap food, cheap household goods and cheap everything. It’s a class issue.
Why does the left really hate Walmart? It doesn’t really have a lot to do with unions and has a lot to do with class. Walmart’s crime is industrial. It’s the crime of the factory and the supermarket and every means of mass production and consumption. It makes cheap products too readily available to the masses. Liberals like to believe that they oppose consumerism, but what they really want to do is raise the entry levels to the lifestyle. Liberal consumerism is all about upselling ethics.
When tangible goods become too easy to produce, you add value through intangibles. The fair trade food tastes the same as non-fair trade food. Organic, a category with a debatable meaning, doesn’t really provide that much more value. And environmental labels are worth very little. And yet the average product at Whole Foods is covered in so many “ethical liberal” labels that it’s hard to figure out what it even is.
Intangible value is all about class. And class is all about creating barriers to entry.
Liberalism has become a revolt against the middle class that its grandparents struggled to reach, a rejection of their “materialism” while substituting the “ethical materialism” of liberalism in its place that envisions a much smaller upper and middle class that derives its wealth and power not from hard work in the private sector, but highly profitable social justice volunteerism in the public sector.
An American Dream of universal prosperity has been pitted against the left’s dream of a benevolent feudal system in which the few will be very well paid to oversee the income equality of the many.
The left’s private argument against the American Dream is that it’s little more than Walmart. And to some degree they’re right. Easy availability of the necessities of life does not lead to a meaningful life. But the easy contempt that the left has for it shows its basic inability to understand how important these things are and how hard they were to come by for most of human history.
Salt was once a precious commodity. Today it sells for pennies a pound. The ability to light the darkness meant the difference between studying at night and living in ignorance. Today a light bulb goes for a quarter. At least it did until the left banned them. And electricity, the left also keeps raising the price of that. Few of the post-apocalyptic fantasies spilling out of Hollywood really describe what would happen if the people manufacturing them were thrown back before the industrial revolution..
Progress has made a good life materially possible, but it has also displaced and damaged the social mechanisms that make a good life socially possible. We have easy access to technology and streets full of vicious illiterate thugs. We can discuss anything with anyone, but we live in a society that values few things worth discussing. We have mass production, but not mass character.
For all its feigned populism, such elitist critiques of society are not foreign to the left. The left’s elitist critiques differ in some regards, but they are on the same basic wavelength as those of the social conservative. And its solution is to promote what it considers social progress by reversing or slowing down industrial, commercial and technological progress. The environmental movement is only the latest ideological incarnation of this philosophy which strives to slow down the rate of progress.

The left’s social collectivism however is no replacement for what is being lost. What it really does is attempt to apply industrial and commercial strategies to human relationships. Not only is it not a challenge to a consumeristic society, but it attempts to worsen the damage by rebuilding society on the model of the factory and the department store as an impersonal system.
That’s not a solution to the problem. It is the problem.
The left cannot escape its own materialism. Its attempts at adding an ethical dimension to materialism fail because its ethical dimension is still materialistic. Its pathetic efforts at injecting pastiches of Third World and minority spirituality into its politics to provide the illusion of a spiritual dimension are hollow and racist. The left cannot fill its own hole, because it is the hole.
Like Islam, it provides something for people to believe in, but the thing it provides is the compulsion to find meaning by forcibly remaking other people’s lives in a perpetual revolution which becomes its own purpose.
The left can’t replace family or religion. Its social solutions are alien and artificial. They fix nothing and damage everything. Their appeal is to those who are arrogant and starved for meaning, who want religion without religion and family without family only to discover that they are not enough.

Another jewel of degradation gleaming in the wan light of witlessness:

A school (should I say “school”?) in Brooklyn, more than two-thirds of whose students are black or Hispanic, has abolished its (I mean “it’s”) advanced courses for the intelligent. Why this salubrious excision? Why, because too many of the students therein are white. That is, classes for the intelligent contain the intelligent. My god.

School Sex Ed Indoctrination Goes to Perversion and Beyond

February 7, 2014

Resistance to Perverted Sexual Indoctrination in Government Schools

The indoctrination of innocent children with progressives’ unspeakably vile sexual ideology has encountered pushback in an unlikely place — liberal Hawaii:

State Rep. Bob McDermott, who enrolled his eight children in Hawaii’s public schools, doesn’t want his 11-year-old son exposed to a controversial taxpayer-funded sex education program.

That program is taught in 12 public schools across the state, and the Hawaii Department of Education is planning to expand the curriculum to others. …

The 10-hour program, called Pono Choices (pono is a Hawaiian word that translates to “the right way”), is designed for youth aged 11 to 13. It has been taught to 1,700 Hawaii middle school children through an $800,000 pilot program.

McDermott said the program is “medically inaccurate” and not biology based, and that it teaches children about topics such as anal sex, sex with multiple partners and how to put on a condom — using a cucumber or wooden replica of a penis.

Only Big Government could manage to waste $800,000 of other people’s money telling little kids about the glories of anal sex.

Kudos to McDermott, who has produced a report entitled “The Pono Choices Curriculum: Sexualizing the Innocent.”

“The program normalizes a homosexual lifestyle and anal sex, while failing to warn students of the extreme dangers of anal sex; it references multiple sex partners, while failing to inform students about the health benefits of monogamy; it fails to warn students about the ineffectiveness of condoms against HPV, herpes, and anal sex; and fails to educate students on the stages of human reproduction,” McDermott said, providing Hawaii Reporter with an early copy of his report.

“Any talk of anal sex — which the curriculum does frequently — is instinctively repulsive for pre-pubescent children. Additionally, calling the anus a genital — as Pono Choices does — is just plain medically wrong,” McDermott said.

Uh oh. I think we have a thought criminal on our hands. Doesn’t McDermott realize that thousands of years of history and even biology itself have been overturned by liberal decree, and that homosexuality is now officially normal? Acknowledging that anal sex is instinctively repulsive is hurtful to those for whom indulging in this instinctively repulsive activity comprises the cornerstone of personal identity.

Once he obtained a copy [with some difficulty] and reviewed it with his staff attorney and others, McDermott felt the curriculum fails to inform children of the exponentially increased risks [of sexually transmitted diseases, some lethal] of male on male anal sex.

“Such omission renders the entire document questionable at best and agenda-driven social engineering at worst,” McDermott said.

But spreading AIDS, hepatitis, syphilis, et cetera is a small price to pay to advance the homosexualization of America, which must be crucial to our country’s well-being or the liberal establishment wouldn’t place so much emphasis on it.

“The curriculum treats sexual activity before the age of 14 as a viable choice, despite the state sexual assault law, which puts the age of consent at 16,” McDermott said.

First you change the culture through indoctrination. Then you change the laws. Cultural Marxists seized control of education and the media long ago, but even now are still consolidating control of the government.

Extravagantly expensive government education.

Race and Crime. Statistics Don’t Lie, But Politicians Do.

DEATH WISH At Forty: Are We Allowed To “Notice” Race NOW?

By Paul Kersey on February 4, 2014 at 10:29pm

DEATH WISH At Forty: Are We Allowed To "Notice" Race Now?Forty years ago, a movie was released in theaters that late film critic Roger Ebert immediately knew represented something “scary.” [Review, January 1, 1974]

In contrast to Obama’s America, where Hollywood, television, and the Main Stream Media are working overtime to promote false consciousness about crime in America (just watch an episode of Law & Order or remember what the producer of COPS said about wanting to show only reversing the ratio of white and minority criminals (“I do that intentionally because I do not want to contribute to negative stereotypes”)  this movie packed a powerful reminder: no matter how much incessant propaganda tries to make people believe a lie, one perfectly-packaged dose of truth is enough to make it all go away.

That movie: Death Wish. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of its theatrical release, a special edition Blu Ray version was released today (February 4). [Purchase here and direct a commission to VDARE.com at no cost to you!] Never has the response of the Charles Bronson character (named, by an amazing coincidence, Paul Kersey) to the rape-murder of his wife and rape-mental ruin of his daughter looked better.

Based on a novel by Brian Garfield (interestingly, its protagonist was named Paul Benjamin and was Jewish), Death Wish spawned four sequels. But it was the compelling manner in which the original movie portrayed Bronson’s actions as justified that frightened Ebert. He said:

There’s never any question of injustice, because the crimes are attempted right there before our eyes. And then Bronson becomes judge and jury—and executioner.

That’s what’s scary about the film. It’s propaganda for private gun ownership and a call to vigilante justice.

No doubt this was exactly why the great Murray Rothbard praised the movie so much:

Death Wish is a superb movie, the best hero-and-vengeance picture since Dirty Harry. Bronson, an architect whose young family has been destroyed by muggers, drops his namby-pamby left-liberalism, and begins to pack a gun, defending himself brilliantly and uncompromisingly against a series of muggers who infest New York City. Yet he never kills the innocent, or commits excesses. Naturally, even though he is only defending himself against assault, the police, who have failed to go after the muggers and who acknowledge the fall in the crime rate due to Bronson’s activities, devote their resources to pursuing him instead of the criminals who terrorize New York. It is a great and heroic picture, a picture demonstrating one man’s successful fight for justice.

As might be expected, Death Wish has been subjected to hysterical attacks by the left-liberal critics who acknowledge the power and technical qualities of the picture, which they proceed to denounce for its “fascist ideology” (self-defense by victims against crimes) and its “pornography of violence” (in a just cause).

Don’t miss Death Wish; it says more about the “urban problem” than a dozen “message” documentaries, and it helps bring back heroism to the movies.

August 1974 issue of The Libertarian Forum

One line of dialogue in Death Wish cuts to the heart of America’s crime dilemma. While Bronson’s character is at a dinner party in New York City, he overhears a conversation between two guests about his vigilante actions:

Man: I’ll tell you one thing: the guy’s a racist. You notice he
 kills more Blacks than Whites.

Woman: Oh, for Pete’s sake, Harry. More Blacks are muggers than
Whites. What do you want to do–increase the proportion of White
 muggers, so we’ll have racial equality among muggers?

Roger Ebert balked at the movie’s depicting New York City

…like one of those bloody future cities in science-fiction novels about anarchy in the twenty-first century. Literally every shadow holds a mugger; every subway train harbors a killer; the park is a breeding ground for crime.

But as the 1970s drew on, New York City did indeed become a place where “anarchy” reigned, along with all the ills Ebert brushed aside.

Fast forward to 2014: Those demographic groups behind Rothbard’s “urban problem” in New York City now have a true friend in Mayor Bill de Blasio.

And, with the repudiation of Rudy Giuliani’s reforms, it will again become a city with the increasingly “bloody future” that Ebert whined about Death Wish’s depicting.

Today, New York City is 33 percent white, 25.5 black, 28.6 Hispanic, and 12.7% Asian.

When Death Wish came out (1974), New York was 62.95 white, 21.13 percent black, and 16. percent Hispanic.

Only 30 years prior to that, the city was 91.97 percent white.

Our friends at the New York City Police Department put out a yearly guide (Crime and Enforcement Activity in New York City).

The record shows that 1.3 percent (2008), 1.4 percent (2009), 1.4 (2010), 2.5 (2011), and 2.4 (2012) of the arrested suspects in shootings (defined as any crime where the victim is struck with a bullet) in New York City were white.

During that same time, 78.3 percent (2008), 79.8 percent (2009), 74.2 (2010), 72.5 (2011), and 78.2 (2012), of the arrested suspects in shootings were black.

And during that same time, 18.3 percent (2008), 19.9 percent (2009), 23.3 (2010), 23.9 (2011), and 18.9 (2012) of the arrested suspects in shootings were Hispanic.

In short: forty years after Death Wish, almost all gun crime in New York City is non-white.

How about murder victims/suspects?

Between 2008-2012:

  • Blacks were 61.72 percent of murder      victims and 58.3 percent of murder suspects.
  • Hispanics were 26.2 percent of murder      victims and 32.78 percent of murder suspects.
  • Whites were 7.84 percent of murder      victims and 6.08 percent of murder suspects.

In short: between 2008-2012, blacks and Hispanics were 91.08 percent of murder suspects in New York City.

How about rape victims/suspects over the same period?

  • Blacks were 39.34 percent of rape      victims and 51.42 percent of rape suspects.
  • Hispanics were 38.44 percent of rape      victims and 35 percent of rape suspects.
  • Whites were 16.64 percent of rape      victims and 9.28 percent of rape suspects.

In short: Between 2008-2012, blacks and Hispanics were 86.42 percent of rape suspects in New York City.

Robbery victims/suspects?

  • Blacks were 31.6 percent of robbery      victims and 71.02 percent of rape suspects.
  • Hispanics were 37.46 percent of robbery      victims and 23.32 percent of rape suspects.
  • Whites were 18.04 percent of robbery      victims and 4.32 percent of rape suspects.

In short: between 2008-2012, blacks and Hispanics were 94.34 percent of robbery suspects in New York City.

The face of crime in New York City is non-white. (Excellent NYPD graphics for murder victims/suspects: 2010, 2011, 2012).

Ebert was right to label Bronson’s Death Wish “scary,” but he was wrong about why.  The fact that, despite all the anti-gun propaganda in school, the MSM, and Hollywood/TV, that this film resonated so deeply proves that Andrew Breitbart was right when he said: “Politics is downstream from culture.”

The subversive essence of Death Wish wasn’t that Bronson’s character went out and killed muggers, seeking revenge.

It’s that one scene from the dinner party, when the racial reality of crime in New York City is repudiated—a powerful reminder that “noticing” is the true crime in modern America.

Because when you “notice,” and pattern recognition develops obvious truths—justifying, for example “Stop and Frisk”—it becomes apparent why, as the black and Hispanic population of New York City becomes greater, the white American population becomes less.

But this bit of dialogue between Kersey and the young husband of his destroyed daughter puts that white flight in a grim perspective:

Paul Kersey: Nothing to do but cut and run, huh? What else? What about the old American social custom of self-defense? If the police don’t defend us, maybe we ought to do it ourselves.

Jack Toby: We’re not pioneers anymore, Dad.

Paul Kersey: What are we, Jack?

Jack Toby: What do you mean?

Paul Kersey: I mean, if we’re not pioneers, what have we become? What do you call people who, when they’re faced with a condition or fear, do nothing about it, they just run and hide?

Jack Toby: Civilized?

Paul Kersey: No.

2014 America is a less civilized place—precisely because we have been cutting and running in the forty years since Death Wish came out.
