I don’t want anyone here to say that I’m on “The Lunatic Fringe.”
On Blob’s Blog I am right in the CENTER of the lunatics.
“Might as well fess up, Bob. Those Stormfront guys knows it’s what you don’t say that makes you a neoconservative. Not what you say. What you don’t say. That’s how they caught you. Them Stormfront boys is got a lot on the cap. If’n they say it, it’s gospel. Can’t fool a Stormfront guy. Can’t fool Kevin. Couldn’t a fooled Bill P. Some things just show up and you can’t miss it. It ain’t just oil. It’s a whole lot of other things. That’s what they told me. I take it as gospel. I trust these boys. ”

You got me!
Since you state this in the academic language I was raised with, I can’t squirm out of it.
Anonowitz and I have come clean.
We are kikes.
As Brian put it in Monty Python’s Life of Brian after Brian was informed his father was a Roman, “I am a kike, a Hebe, a hook-nose, and I’m PROUD of it!”
Just don’t tell anybody.
Somebody asked me about the China Threat once again
This makes excellent sense, since when I talked about Britain and Russia having military teeth, I left out China.
But I have discussed it at length.
Here we go again:
I discussed China before at length, but I am not sure anybody understood what I was talking about because Stormfronters do not think racially.
You may want to look it up and you may understand it. All I ever get out of it is more revelations about the Middle East.
My basic point was that the Chinese have all of the constructive ability for organization and teamwork that ants do.
They also have the fatal weakness that ants have when you kill the Queen.
But let’s forget that and noticed something even easier:
China is enormously vulnerable militarily.
To START with, and there is MORE, China consists largely of two rivers, the Whang Ho and the Yang Tse. A serious nuclear attack on the mouths of these two rivers would put China into a desperate position, and it isn’t easy to find a subsitute feeding ground for half a billion people who depend directly on the paddies there.
China faces a United States that is NOT vulnerable inthat way. YOu can bomb the hell out of hte Middle West corn belt and we will still eat very well.
This is the kind of thing other people don’t think about, but that keeps Chinese planners awake at night.
An American president who KNOWS about this will keep China from being too much of a threat.
I went back to grad school for a semester in 1992, just to check things out.
I took the full load and went in as a PhD candidate.
One thing I noticed was that students would say, “Professor X is teaching a seminar course in …”
The last time I was in grad school over a quarter of a century before, nobody TAUGHT a seminar.
You LEAD a seminar. I didn’t even mention this because no one would in grad school with me would understand the difference.
A COURSE is a COURSE. You are taking students through a course of study.
A SEMINAR is NOT a COURSE.
The difference between TEACHING a seminar and LEADING a seminar is exactly the same as the difference between a Soviet Assembly and a real representative government.
In representative government the leadership uses every dirty trick in the book to get a majority for its policies, which does not smack of Fairy Tale Fairness.
In a Communist “Parliament” there are no dirty tricks. All votes are unanimous.
I may be the last professor who thinks of himself as LEADING a seminar.
The minute I start TEACHING a seminar somebody like Mark or Peter jumps down my throat.
Can you imagine trying to explain that difference to a modern, hoop-jumping person who has made it to grad school?
Someone wrote me:
“I really like your posts. Could you please use paragraph structure though? Thanks.”
Since the entry qualification for Bob’s Blog is that you have outgrown your college education, whether you had one or not, I am stuck with a lot EDUCATED people here.
So a lot of you may have noticed that my paragraph structure is pure anarchy.
So let me assure you there is a reason for this. I am open to disagreement.
Here was my reply to, “Could you please use paragraph structure though? Thanks.”
Richard Viguerie made a fortune on direct mail before everybody else ( See my 1982 book) copied him.
He did statistical tests, and found that long paragraph structure does not WORK.
Not from the critical point of view, but from the plebian point of view of getting people to READ it.
Correct paragraph structure is technically correct according to those who make the rules.
But back on Planet Earth people find it BORING.
Hemingway was also criticized for his unscientific paragraphs, but he never gave them up and his stuff sold pretty well.
I said that seminars were once a place where a professor could stop spoon-feeding unwilling students in lectures and kick back and talk with those who know the subject and can feed him thoughts he hadn’t come up with.
Nowadays that doesn’t happen. Nowadays the student regurgitates what he’s told and he knows the professor will grade him on how much he agrees with said prof.
But when I kicked back and got nasty and crappy with THIS crowd, I caught it HARD.
Even Sweet Shari gave me grief about my, literally, gutter humor.
Mark reamed me good.
I NEED that.
I also got a good laugh out of Mark’s saying he was not going to lie down and worship me.
Mark, old buddy, I think you made THAT point pretty clear. You did it with what I like to refer to as a Whitaker level of subtlety.
Which is why nobody needs to say “I may be wrong” or “I’m not an expert” here.
I cleared your comment. If you were making a fool of yourself or whatever you’re worried about I wouldn’t clear it.
More important, BOB makes an ass of himself aplenty here.
BOB needs the same kind of treatment. I am ridiculously crabby and sometimes coarse. CALL me on it.
Thanks, Mark. Thanks, Shari.
But I will sin again.
I got it again on Stormfront. My saying I might invade Saudi Arabia or some other OEC country is they keep OPEC going AGAINST THE US just shows I’m an oil-grabbing neo.
So I tried again:
I mentioned the Saudis,but I did not specify which OPEC country I would take.
THERE WOULDN”T BE ANY TAKING ANYWAY.
OPEC would just get the cartel of of AMERICA’S back.
I would love to see all those countriest we protected all those decades from the Communists paing through the nose for OPEC oil while we got straight cost plus ten.
AND ISRAEL paying all that OPEC wants to charge for oil.
Yea, right. The neocons would really love me!!!
Once we pull all subsidies out of Israel, all that Jewish money that goes to pushing their agenda would have to shift to preserving that crappy little country on their own.
No doubt about it, I’m a neocon.
Everybody is so obsessed with Israel and Saudi Arabia that nobody is doing the kind of thinking an AMERICAN president should do:
Nobody has seen the reality for OUR purposes about this “superpower” stuff.
America is not the only SUPERpower left on earth, it is the only POWER left on earth.
I would enforce law against all reexport of cheap OPEC oil. And when Bob says ENFORCE I think you have a good idea what I mean by that word:
And the DC jail.
No country but the US in all the world is able to enforce its own interests.
After half a century of military welfare, Europe has a completely toothless, aged, tiny military.
The only countries with teeth, Britain and Russia, HAVE plenty of oil.
The United States might seriously become the defenders of OPEC countries from others doing what we are doing.
We would allow breaks for other countries ONLY if they elected governments that protect white interests.
Meanwhile those countries that stick to Political Correctness pay a hundred dollars a barrel and the third world pours on in.
I am still having difficulty understanding why neos would like any of this.
There will a Pax Americana without a shot fired.
We have fought two really horrible ewars since we won our independence.
The first was over the blacks.
The second was for the Jews and to make the world safe for Stalin.
I think Messiah simply can’t get used to the idea of somebody who would flex our muscle for US.
There won’t be a war. There’s nobody to fight one with. Islam will love us And, more imporant, FEAR us.
So they’ll go bomb Europe until Europe gets some cajones.
Are you SURE I’m a neo?
I got crappy and Mark called me on it:
Regarding my bad-tempered remark below, Mark hit me TWICE:
I take offense at your statment. So you write an entry which is more proclamation than discussion and then you expect everyone (during a holiday weekend even)to throw themselves to the floor, genuflect like trained puppets, and squawk what a wun-der-full statment you have just made. Okay, fine. From now on when you’ve written one of your declarations of adoration entries I’m gonna’ write:
“Amen-hallelujah-aman! That Bubba Witt’ker fella is might-eee fine! Amen – hallelujah-amen!”

Oh, and another thing. While you were penning that ever so enlightening and oh-so invigorating paragraph about sewers and what not, I was busy visiting the grave (w/my daughter) of a real pro-white hero — one Sam Hildebrand (Missouri Major of the army of the Confederacy, bushwhacker, peacelover until his family was murdered and his home burnt down by northerners, and all around 19th. century real-life bravehart).
But of course, forgive my divine father for I have sinned. Amen-hallelujah-amen! That Bubba Witt’ker fella is might-ee fine! Amen-hallelujah-amen to ad nausium…
Comment by Mark — 5/30/2006
Mark, I wish you would stop being so worshipful and shy and just tell me what you think.
I’m going to bed.
My friggin’ DREAMS are smarter than this!
Somebody mentioned that Eastwood is beneath contempt.
I was corresponding with somone in med school who spent his days being sick.
He had rotting corpse parts put in his hand on a regular basis.
I used to get sick thinking of formaldehyded frogs.
A medical professional can autopsy a three-day-old corpse, go to lunch and get back to work.
If a fellow worker said to him, “This thing really STINKS,” he would mark the commenter down for treatment.
If you are a sewer worker, knee deep in the slime, what would you do it someone cried out, “I can’t BELIEVE it! Right over there there is a piece of **** floating in the water!”
I probably don’t really appreciate the outrage of Conspiracy Theorists because I have been knee deep in this sewer so LONG.
When Clint Eastwood took over on Wagon Train the first Heroie Negro was part of his ensemble.
His first major film, a semi-horror flop, featured his very black buddy with a blond girl who said, “I’ve got my MAN.”
Troy Donahue was always getting pictures taken dancing with his very black girlfriend.
Her Glorious Britannic Majesty Queen Elizabeth II had pictures taken showing her dancing with the new president of Ghana, whoever the hell he was.
I spent my entire career in that sewer.
So you finally figured out that what is floating down the river Her Majesty lives in is is a piece of ****.
That’s a good start.
But don’t announce it to me like it’s a new release.
I was asked what my policies would be if I were president.
I mentioned several, one of which was that if the oil cartel didn’t stop cheating us, I’d sent in troops and take some oilfields.
Please note I did NOT say that if the oil cartel didn’t stop ganging up on France or Britain or anybody else I would threaten them. I would not even name any specific set of oilfields we’d take.
I would say, “I am the AMERICAN president. You are robbing AMERICANS. If you don’t get the price for US down to reasonable levels, I will see the cartel as an act of war, a combination against our national interests.”
“We (The People of the United States of America and OUR Posterity) need oil. We can buy it or take it. But if we have to take it you’ll pay the cost.”
The AMERICAN oil problem would end so fast it wou ld make your ears ring.
Naturally somebody pointed out that I was just one of neos out to pick onthe Arabs.
He reads the paper too much or listens to too many “sources” and doesn’t look at the Constitution and stuff like that.
But he also wrecks a discussion that is needed.
He wants me to defend myself, Bob Whitaaer, against being a NEO when what I have put on the table is something any real American has thought of from time to time.
He has fifty million news readers to shout “neo” at, but this is hte only place he will find somebody bring this idea out in the open.
And it is IDEA.
If his sources tell him that command of the US Armed Forces has been turned over to me, he needs to let ME know.
As a matter of fact, I think DISCUSSION of the POSSIBILITY of this action, if it got votes, would have OPEC in Washington clamoring for a deal if we won OR lost.
But before we could do this, we would have to deal with all the conspiracy freaks who are obsessed with labels and the latest poop (in BOTH senses of that word) about whatever is big on the Conspiracy Network right now.
West had it dead right: our challenge is not the antis, it’s debate with EACH OTHER.
Anything out of hte box gets aborted at birth.
And we are NOT going to win by reciting inside the box.
When I bitched about “Comments (0)” here were are the responses:
“We need Mark.”
“Thanks for the vote of confidence!”
“It’s just that sometimes I don’t have anything unique or insightful or all that intelligent to say on a subject so instead of sounding dumb (which I do enough of anyway) I wait for greater minds than mine to respond. ”
This is exactly how a real seminar, not the dished-out crap that passes for them today, worked.
A seminar is where an old professor who has spent decades trying to pound half a gallon of information into pint-seized minds.
If it’s economics, there won’t be two sudens in a large lecture room who are there voluntarily.
So when he got his seminar, he had something he lovewd, but which a modern professor-bureaucrat cannot deal with: a roomful of students who were familar with his subject and were there on purpose.
Many, many times he would say, “I’ve been working on this” and go up to board and scracth out a diagram or an equation or something to mkae common sense look academic.
You gotta do SOMETHING with your hands.
He would end up saying, “I want you to give this some thought.”
Can you imagine a modern professor-bureucrat asking his students to do some THINKING?
But many times the students would spend the period between seminar sessions partying.
Naturallly this did not include Robert the Virtuous. But I must admit that, while I sat in my bare cell lost in Transcendental Thoughts, my mind did wander away from the subject the Prof had talked about.
The pre-class talk would begin calmly and then get a little feverish.
“Did something come up with anything?”
“I didn’t, I had a big macro test and a hundred test papers to correct.”
“Me, neither. I had two basic economics classes to teach and tach-up work on my thesis and…”
Finally some honest man would respond, “You gotta be kidding! I just woke up inthe drunk tank two hours ago.”
He was in no shape to think up excuses.
So a Peter would pipe up and say, “Where’s Mark? He can always come up with SOMETHING.”
But the point here one I doubt any of you who have been in college or grad school can even imagine.
Ole Prof demanded that you THINK about something. Can you IMAGINE a modern professor getting grumpy if you didn’ try to THINK of somethine HE hadn’t spoon-fed you?
*** Since I called Peter a Pain and he took me on by changing his name here to Pain, it occurred to me that Peter Paine would make a great name for a character in a stoty.
Never saw the movie. Thanks for telling me what it was about. Eastwood sure is a tough guy. He sure can put on a tough looking face. I never met a cop like Dirty Harry. He fought with his own department and won all the time. What a guy! Must have taken a lot of guts to make a movie like “The Unforgiven.” Or could it have something to do with filthy lucre? Doesn’t sound like the kind of guy I like to ride the dusty plains with.
Comment by joe rorke —
A cop like Dirty Harry would be in prison, as you know.
Respectable conservative worship and drool over uniforms.
You and I both know that in the 1930s a general or a cop could be like MacAthur or Patton.
Patton actually fought a real gun-battle with Mexican bandits.
But a general today is not just a bureaucrat, he must be a particularly pathetic, groveling bureaucrat.
If you are a cop who aspires to scrambled eggs on your cap, you have to be an Olympic-class groveler.
I don’t make the rules, I just stayed alive by seeing them.
Back to Eastwood.
No, it wasn’t filthy lucre that caused “The Unforgiven.” He had gotten lots of bad reviews for his money-making movies so he decided to make one the critics would rave about.
So what how would any reasonably intelligent person make the New York Jews rave?
This ain’t brain surgery, gang.
We are dealing with people who are as predictable as an atomic clock.
New York Jews HATE the whole Legend of the West. They KEEP trying to prove that everbody at the Alamo was an abject coward.
You know that gunfight Patton had as a young man? That’s why he wore those sixguns. The movie Patton had nothing about it.
Patton, all alone — in the REAl world — shot down the charging Mexicans one by one. When the Mexican leader dropped his gun, Patton waited for him to pick it back up, and THEN shot him down.
This does not happen in a Woodie Allen film.
So how do you make a movie the New York Jews and their Faithful Goy Companions will rave about?
You make every white gentile in the Old West a Woody Allen, but without Woodie Allen’s honestly about what a coward he was.
That’s what Eastwood was after. The critics went nuts over the film with all the unpredictability of an atomic clock telling the time.
Eastwood is rich beyond anything he could ever need. He does NOT give all that money to charity.
Eastwood is now the darling of Serious Cinematic Criticism.
Neither of these statements makes him a moral paragon.
He is not after the Title of Paragon.
Eastwood got exactly what he wanted.
Do I approve?
A more meaningful question is:
Does Eastwood give a rip whether I approve or not?
If and when he calls and says, “Bob, do you approve of me?” I will let you know.
Don’t forget, this is an industry which needs us to survive! Without us nasty racists, they are out of buisiness. No wonder they seem so keen to make any white person who speaks for his race a racist, and anyone else who doesn’t really support multi-racialism a ‘latent’ or ‘closet’ racist.
They need us to survive, just as the Jews need racists, so they can be Jews. They need their enemies.
And in a sense, I think some of us need them.
Comment by Dennis
That reminds me of Gandalf in LOTR.
What if I get my little army and topple the Dark Lord the way I want to?
We can do it.
While all the obvious forces are in full array marching against the Enemy, we can destroy the evil ones
Why? Because they will be looking at the chest-beaters. None of them could imagine anyone would be willing to forego all the glory and hit them in hte one place that would be their ruin.
The Dark Lord was destroyed in the very place and with the very Ring it never occurred to him anyone would be willing to have the moral courage to destroy.
H was confident that everyone would see that the Ring was beautiful and precious.
No one would destroy it simply because it was Evil.
Let eerybody else array themselvea against the Powers That B
We will destroy them because they are laughable.
Gandalf said that his mission ended when the Dark Lord was destroyed, when the Third Age ended.
Could I live with that?
Put it another way:
With that, I could LIVE.
