Someone has pointed out ath “Family Guy” is supposed to be un-PC, but is the most PC program on TV, though South Park is right up there.
FG, along with the Simpsons and South Park, have had the obligatory episode where:
1) Poppa meet queer;
2) Poppa goes to gun group to prove he is not queer.
3) Poppa and son lapse into an effeminate crying session about how they cannot kill a poor animal.
The gun people, of course, are all closet homos and nuts.
But one little exchange occurred on FG. The dog says to the baby, “That is like the Holocaust to us dogs.”
The baby replies, “Well, if YOU owned the World Bank …”
When you allow even the least amount of heresy, things sneak out.
Bob, I was reading your Stormfront thread aimed at ’shakazulu’. Although I think you demean yourself by trying to ‘debate’ with the likes of him, I’m glad you did, because you produced a little gem of a phrase -
“The Military-Israeli Complex”.
The leftists will like it, because it updates their old favourite ‘military-industrial complex’.
Pro-Whites will like it, because it sums things up perfectly and sounds less crazy than ‘ZOG’.
Conservatives of the McCain type will hate it.
I’ll be using it from now on.
This is important, because it gives us insight into the future.
The most important military outcome the Vietnam War was the termination of the draft.
This is something the nonmilitary half of the establishment cannot today come to terms with, for it altered the long standing social contract of tyranny with the American people that began with Lincoln’s tyranny and his Union draft.
Liberals, above all, hate the fact that the draft is dead. It gets in the way of their advocacy of treason.
This contradiction shows up in the blatantly politically motivated “moment of silence” the PBS Jim Lehrer News Hour performs showing pictures of recently killed American servicemen.
What Jim Lehrer and the PBS News Hour band of nitwit traitors forget is that these dead American soldiers picked up the gun on a voluntary basis.
They VOLUNTARILY signed on the dotted line accepting the Military’s jurisdiction over their lives.
When you pick up a gun a volunteer basis, you are a PLAYER in the world of violence.
No one need cry over YOUR sorry ass when you are killed or maimed.
This is a completely different ethic of soldiering than draft soldering.
It is a moral ethic of soldiering that bears no relation to the ethics that allow soldiers to be enslaved under draft laws. And it is the ONLY ethic of soldiering authorized by the American Constitution.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to be harmed by the enemy as a volunteer soldier. IMPOSSIBLE!!!
The fact that you stumbled in front of the enemy’s bullet or in front of the enemy’s bomb was YOUR OWN DAMN FAULT!!!
YOU volunteered to be a PLAYER in the world of violence. VOUNTEERED!!!
There is this damn Asian soldier (he claims to be an American) who has made a big deal out of being an Iraqi War resister. He has made a big splash with the anti-war nitwits, senile fools, living in a world that has been gone since 1975.
Nobody mentions that he VOLUNTEERED to accept the US military’s jurisdiction over his life. VOLUNTEERED. In reality he deserves execution for his treason.
To those who think, “all is lost”, just think about the huge progress made by the end of the legitimacy of the draft. This, in fact, was a great victory for our race.
It says everything about how we must focus.
When you stop caterwauling about being victimized and accept that duty is something you volunteer on behalf of YOUR (very own) convictions, you win the game.
When you realize that everyone is issued exactly one brain and that it must be used upon YOUR (very own) volition, on behalf of a freedom that it is YOUR (very own) responsibility to achieve, you are on the road.
That’s white people! That’s our real tradition!
White people, whether they know it or not, are walking that road and the fact that we ended the draft is proof of it.
And if you want to know how ruinous draft laws really are, look at “the Greatest Generation” and what they did to America.
They had the draft and they destroyed our country with it.
And the destruction of America is the real skinny on the “Greatest Generation”.
And if you really think they ever won even one battle in WWII, you don’t understand the reality of WWII at all.
No such thing ever happened.
I am reading the Nero Wolfe series, and I noticed that the author, Rex Stout, was big on “Negroes” even in 1938. So I checked hi biography and, sure enough, he was a committed leftie who refused to go before the House UnAmerican Activities Committee and explain his Communist Front connections.
But Stout ended his life being vilified by the left for his hawkish stance on Vietnam. The same thing happened to Ralph McGill, editor of the Atlanta Journal and a fanatical turncoat. The same thing happened to many other old lefties.
If you put the situation simply it sounds simplistic, but it is true. President Johnson announced proudly that the Vietnam War was being fought ENTIRELY for the Vietnamese. That was the Greatest Generation talking. He expected everyone to love him for it.
You see, the Greatest Generation got nothing but applause from Enlightened Opinion when they were giving away the Boomer Generation’s INHERITANCE. The got fat benefits for themselves first and then demanded that American whites give away everything else.
But by the 1960s, they were giving away the Boomer Generation ITSELF and the Boomers were no longer helpless infants. Every male Boomer had to build his life around the draft or go to Nam and faced the fight for their colored brothers.
The REAL youthful opposition to the Vietnam War was not the screaming Jews who were the media darlings. They were younger people who were conservative but did not see why they should lose even MORE for their colored brothers.
Wallace, not Nixon, sunk Humphrey in 1968. And Wallace had the largest percentage of young votes, despite the image of screaming Jews as the Youth of the 1960s.
No one has mentioned this before.
I am not a good Christian in popular terms, but, as a Bible Belter, I have the common courtesy to tak people’s faith seriously.
One commenter referred to clergymen who use the Bible to justify Political Correctness, as “cop-outs.”
Let’s call it by its name. This is not a cop-out. This is blasphemy. There is POWER in plain speaking.
I do not claim to have any religious authority. Those who do have assumed, in their and their follwers’ minds, a massive responsibility. When I hammer on “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” I am expressing my own argument, nothing else. A clergyman has the right to say something is his opinion. But when he speaks for God as a representative of God, this takes on an entirely different character.
When CLERGYMEN who claim to be called by God state flatly that the latest dictuim of Political Correctness is what God wants, he is in a position I am NOT in.
If he truly believes what he says, that is one thing. But if his declaration is obviously to satfisfy the powers that be, that is straight blasphemy.
When Bob Jones IV saw that all the money men were going against the Confederate flag and joined them because he said GOD wanted it to come down, I caused a lot of protests from his followers by stating flatly that this was blasphemy, a term a Bible literalist should understand.
Jones quoted a passage from the New Testament which had been there for over a millenium and a half to justify his switch. That same passage had been there during the thirty years he supported the flag. He suddenly discovered it when he found that the money men could threaten his inherited family business.
That is not a cop-out, that is blasphemy..
I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for PJB to get the Mantra. PJB is an old man who is way behind the times.
The issue of white supremacy is concluded.
This is something only we here at BUGS know. And knowing this is what makes Robert Whitaker the leading edge intellectual of our times.
Everybody else is fighting yesterday’s war.
I have no doubt in my mind about this. I am around nonwhites personally too much to doubt it and personally received evidence is the BEST EVIDENCE.
I wish PJB knew this. He is too busy avoiding nonwhites (on a personal basis) to know anything real about race. At heart, he is a Wordist.
Nonwhites’ religious convictions are no deeper than the wholly deepest conviction that the white race is the supreme race on earth. (You have rise above Wordism to know how true this is. You have to be personally involved with nonwhites to know how true this is.)
The only race that is not convinced of this is the white race and that portion of the white race enrolled in Storm Front is the portion of our race that is convinced the least.
AND therein lies the problem. The problem is with we whites and our blindness.
PJB is not going to jettison his Catholic values in the same way SF’ers are not going to jettison their resentment and fears. Rest assured, he will die with his Catholic values (and Wordist convictions) intact. That leaves no room for his ascertaining the Mantra.
Bob, I recall that you made us aware of PJB’s religious leanings long ago. And how this undermined him being effective for us. I just wanted to make everyone aware of the article.
ME: It’s not PJB CATHOLIC religion that is the point. Evangelicals end up with the swame “religious” cop-out. I am sure you understand that the basic point is the blasphemy PJB and others use to cop out on race.
Back to Tim:
Now he just needs the Mantra. And until we see the Mantra in his articles, We cannot count on him. But I am going to keep one eye on Buchanan. I have a feeling about this one. PBJ is older and has made his money. He has nothing to prove to anyone. Everyone already thinks he’s a racist. I think he may let the Mantra fly. Time will tell. He could give a Mantra Speech and be ushered into office Mussolini style. I am not counting on it. But stranger things have happened.
“Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America.
Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation.”
Quotes like the above give me pause. That is a Bus Ride quote. That is new for the mainstream conservatives.
We need to stop grousing about things and look for the real signs.
No more “shriek and retreat.”
Back to Tim:
Remember Bob, you are on a bus with me. Patrick B is on this bus as well. Things change on this bus. And things can change very quickly. I have never seen religion play a role on a multiracial bus ride. And I am an authority on bus rides in the “hood”. On this bus, there is only one issue…. RACE. Not Jesus. Not Catholicism. RACE. Not to mention this latest Obama flareup was started by a Preacher. Remember Bob, only White Churches are Anti-Racists.
Many Whites in charge (and their kids) have had the luxury of dodging the Bus Ride. Not anymore. And they are FINALLY realizing it. Since the Immigration Issue all the Respectables have tried to change the subject. It has become impossible now.
I don’t care if Obama adopts white children. The White Cat is out of the bag. Seems like everything is moving right along. At the rate this is going, Sam Francis will look like a moderate in a few years. And the Liberals I am talking with everyday are starting to be the most radical. Didn’t Liberals elect Hitler? LOL.
To confirm your LOL point, the Left actually DID elect Hitler. In 1933 Nazis and Communists combined held a majority of the Reichstag, One or the other had to be made a part of the government, and both made it clear that they would take over.
It is an end to an era. Everything is now race, race and more RACE.
And it appears it is alright to put out real conservative commentary again! The following piece is what Patrick J. Buchanan just kicked out.
It reads like something Sam Francis wrote years ago. I like it. In fact, I have never read a something this hard hitting by Patrick B. though I grant that I have not been reading Pat’s articles for that many years.
I think Patrick B. smells political opportunity in the coming crisis…….and so do we. He smells Conservative Revenge coming. The Anti-Racists and their Neocon buddies are bleeding in the water and the big White Sharks are circling. An experienced politico like Patrick J. Buchanan does not put out a hard hitting piece like this for no reason. Definitely not at a time like this. Something’s cooking.
I HOPE that this is what we are all thinking:
“Pat stays away from a little thing called the Mantra.”
“He still finds his fudge factor in how everything will be fine if everybody adopts good old Catholic Family Values.”
Having stated what we all should all realize, let me comment on it.
I, through Sam Francis and others, spent YEARS trying to get Buchanan to write about the breeding out of the white RACE. He was the highest paid columnist in America and then a presidential candidate who was a real threat. But each time his efforts ended in his wimping out to be religious zealot who ceased to scare anybody.
Finally, when all else failed, he wrote the book we had kept urging him to write. It broke all his records. But that book, too, ended in a whine that the white race might go away, but if everybody just adopted Good Catholic Family Values…
Yes, Pat is a brilliant man who smells blood. But he always ends up hiding in his own belly when push comes to shove.
But whether PAT makes it is not our concern. He and Obama and Ferraro and all the rest are making it clear that what I kept repeating while Stormfront slept is now too obvious for anybody but a respectable conservative to miss.
Someone put it very well:
“It is an end to an era. Everything is now race, race and more RACE.”
What I like about this piece is that Simmons is not going afield for newspaper examples. He is expanding on the points we make here, the kind of thinking we are dedicating that is wholly different from anybody else’s.
We need the newspaper stuff too. But there are millions doing that, thousands on Stormfront alone. hat makes US invaluable is the approach that is unique to us.
They hate technology but love theology. By theology I mean the unquestioned assumptions that lie behind the rhetoric of the day. Even the AR crowd uses the “racist” word without definining it, but instead fling it around as if they caught the ball from the left.
The Mantra exposes this by actually getting the left to explain in detail what they mean instead of relying on the flippant authoritarianism that allows cult like institutions legitimacy. But shrieking is seemingly the human default mode and this plays into the game. I have surfed the likes of Stormfront and literally if it did not exist some Jews would have to invent it. Millions of posts dedicated to “muds and kikes”, none dedicated to the truly revolutionary inquiry. SF is useful, to Jews and maybe the Obama campaign, but not to white racial evolution.
SF does not need an opposing views thread it needs a Mantra thread. On this thread antis of all stripes will have an invitation to explain in great detail why they want the genocide of the white race. They will be questioned of course, but never shrieked at. I mean if they really “believe” then they should have no problem in using reason and logic why the white race should be genocided. Invites to prominent anti-whites could be extended and real inquiry can be conducted.
Now back to reality, 99.9999% of humanity cannot function beyond slogans. At AR my posts are ignored when I ask them that perhaps they should go ask these antis what they really think. Instead we get IQ studies and yet more wisdom of the obvious. Now the respectable “right” is measuring on how to break the news to its cult that “whiteness” is to be loathed since it has finally received the “truth” from mommy prof. So in respect to reality, perhaps Bob you could make your friend Don useful, have him donate 500 clams to Obama. Reason, the only candidate who will address the importance of race.
I was in the middle of making those laws Dave is talking about, so his discussion is very familiar to me:
We see this so clearly in the Visa MasterCard monopoly. The abuses are so egregious that it is inevitable that they will get big time blow back in terms of Congress coming down on them.
BUT these “reforms” will be aimed at preserving the monopoly, while creating a new bureaucracy to monitor and control future egregious abuses.
BUT the central abuse, the fact the monopoly exists in the first place, will not be addressed. NOT ONLY THAT, the legal underpinnings of the monopoly will be strengthened TO PREVENT an end run made possible by XML technology.
Congress and the Federal Bureaucracy to a large extent are enemies of America in economic matters. They are an occupying force in our land. Their aim is to prevent us from winning our economic freedom.
Of course they hate technology. Technology represents the weapons that will used to bring them down.
I think this are much better for us then we have given ourselves credit for.
Apparently, Geraldine Ferraro attacked Obama on the basis of RACE – and then, not willing to do the pro forma apology, announced SHE is being criticized because she is WHITE.
Yes – the used the “W” word!
Apparently, the Obama Moment just might lead to the End of an Era.
More details to follow.
“Hey! It’s ALRIGHT to be WHITE! The DEMOCRATIC Party said so!”
I suspect John McCain just poured himself a double, and thought to himself, “The thrill of victory…”
I almost missed this because AFKAN put it in General Comments, where it belongs. “General Comments” is in capitals on the right side of this page.
Commenters normal procedure has been to put more general discussion of new topics in their replies to specific pieces where they do not belong. There WAS no other place to put them.
Mderpleding just had one like that and for the first time with a commenter I asked him to put it in GC.
This is certainly not because mderpelding is the first one to do this. It has been our regular procedure for years to put more general statements into our habitual place, as a reply to specific piece. Old habits are hard to break.
But I almost missed AFKANs piece because I have ceased to look at GC. Nobody PUTS anything there. So it is hard for me to break MY old habit of LOOKING for all comments under the latest entries.
But if BUGS is going to make me dispensable, which is what I am after, you are going to have to get used to bringing in new topics yourself.
We all need to break the old habit of not using GC.
The establishment hates technology. In fact almost BY DEFINITION the establishment hates technology. Despite all the crap about the “inevitable future” technological advances are a loose grenade. An establishment likes the things they have established their power IN to remain the same.
Hence the wild screams for more bureaucrats – a la Kyoto – to put a suffocating bureaucracy in place to control things. Establishment solutions are always bureaucratic solutions because bureaucracy is something those in power can PREDICT and CONTROL.
As soon as the internet began to get out of control, demands began that it be controlled. The now usual combination of the priests of Political Correctness and “Christianity” started up, demanding that the runaway internet be regulated to control racism and pornography.
Precisely because the future is so unpredictable, it is critical that the past be remembered accurately.
I remember that it took many, many years for Hollywood to recognize TV. Actors were terrified of losing their Holly wood credentials by going on the cheapside new medium.
The internet medium is moving much faster. In the last couple of year fewer and fewer people ask “What is a blog?” Now National Review and even our local newspaper have blog repeats regularly.
All this reminds me of another part of history, the horseless carriage. It was generally agreed to be that would forever be a toy for the rich. Buggy whip making was a safe investment.
In the terms WE are interested in, I have feeling that the media will be overwhelmed in the information area the way the buggy was.
The important revolutions in our society are the quiet ones, the ones nobody sees coming and that nobody notices when they have happened. That is why I get so crabby when someone obsesses on Hillary or some other big news development. That’s the crap Joe Everybody is dedicated to.
The hype stuff is exactly what the establishment WANTS us to obsess over.
As far as Putin goes, everybody TALKS the Ent Position, but nobody really WALKS it.
One group here says Putin is our guy, another says he isn’t. The Ent Position is that nobody is REALLY on OUR side. Putin makes all the right people chew the rug. That makes people think he’s our guy.
Then, because all the important people are chewing the rug at him, Putin joins the outcry against Iran.
In this case, talk IS cheap. Putin will kiss Jewish backsides as a practical matter, like any other player in the PRESENT power.
But I doubt seriously he will DO anything against iran or do anything for Jews that he doesn’t get paid for.
All this is politics as usual. The only thing that surprises me is how SERIOUSLY people take a debate about whether Putin is Christ or anti-Christ.
While the “Oh, God, all is LOST!” crowd concentrates on people who come and go, someone who is familiar with REAL politics sees the numbers in an entirely different light.
In the 1950s there were about 25,000 members of the Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA).
Conventional wisdom faced two problems here:
1) Obviously, those 25,000 represented only a fraction of the real Communists in America. Even Henry Wallace later admitted that his Progressive Party in 1948 was run by them.
2) McCarthyism said there was a legion of closet Communists in the government and that it dominated the media and other power elites.
So they settled on saying that, for each CPUSA member, there were ten closet Communists.
Then came the 1960s, when Commie was Cool. The media proudly reported college games between Communists and Anarchists. Opposition to the Vietnam War became marches of hundreds of thousands sporting Viet Cong flags.
Phone banks were set up to call families of soldiers and tell them falsely that their son had been killed.
The media now nostalgically calls this The Love Generation.
Extrapolating from KGB files, there were 25,000 closet Communists in the Federal Government alone.
I can confirm this. When I worked at the Voice of America, every attack on the Ideological Homeland, the USSR, was met with a flood of anonymous attacks on the bulletin boards. Those who smuggled in letters to VOA from behind the Iron Curtain found the police at their door.
Have you ever tried to get someone to get on Stormfront? Even the most outspoken will not even write a note here, much less JOIN.
History’s Communist multiplier of ten was a gross and purposeful understatement.
So is Stormfront membership.
Just because I am wholeheartedly loyal to you does not mean I give you permission to abuse me like a two-bit traffic cop.
I guess you may have seen red over the word “drivel,” but it referred only to Dan Brown and the goofy sources he reworked. Brown and they are goofy because they get basic historical facts wrong in outlandishly humorous ways. But to be fair to Brown, he published the book as fiction.
By the way, it seems that the consensus is that (Dan) Brown actually did write the book, although basing it heavily on others as research. I don’t think you care about that, though.
I’ll explain below.
You said here:
To ME, and maybe not to him, Brown made a point I cogitate about.
I read the Da Vinci Code and realized that accepted history still obsesses on Constantine. In the Code, he was supposed to have unilaterally changed the whole Church and made it wholly male-dominated. That reflects the usual accepted history doctrine that there was a united Church that was perverted when Constantine saw those words, not a Cross, in the sky.
But one man didn’t do all that, whether in accepted history or in the Da Vinci Code. My thesis, which is open to correction, is that Constantine was practical politician of his own time.
I stressed the importance of realizing one’s POINT OF VIEW. Brutus is right that Brown was an engineer and a mathematician, so he looked at things from that standpoint. That is an important observation. My background is power politics, so naturally I look at things that way.
Here you say “Brown made a point” and immediately talk about the Da Vinci Code, authored by Brown, Dan Brown. Why would anything think you meant a different author in a different book?
You should know that I am on your side. This is why I wrote: “This is embarrassing to me.” Obviously if I weren’t on your side, it wouldn’t be embarrassing to me. This is also why I waited until your post was down the page before I pointed out the mistake. I thought you would appreciate the comment, but I didn’t want to call attention to a mistake (or proofreading error?) at the top.
You invited such comments with: “My thesis, which is open to correction,” although I don’t think I doubt that particular thesis.
So why the ad hominems? You said:
This does not make you look too bright.
This is a matter of where you are coming from. You are very upset with my version of history. Talk about what actually is bothering you. THAT might be productive.
This is not like you at all. Is it?
It’s a lot like me.
First of all, I read the Da Vinci Code and didn’t remember the author. I had that problemi n grad school. People would refer to a a thesis by the name ofhte author and I was lost, thought I remembered the thesis very well.
You told me stop this review of my version of history because it made me look like a fool, so I slammed back. Then you slamemd back at me. Nordics value truth over diplomacy.
Yes, I am complimented that you took my comments so seriously. It is frustrating to me when I give someone a compliment and they do not appreciate it because it doesn’t have the chocolate coating expected in non-Moot discourse. They spend all their timebeing pissed off about the hard things I say and never appreciate the good things I seem to say so grudingly.
I know Pain. He is a tough yung bird. He can take the nastiest abuse from an anti-white and move calmly on to the next point. That drives them CRAZY!
But if you are in the rare and hard-earned position of being someone he respects, you can get to him. I am glorying more in that than I am worrying about offending him. Outside this seminar, that would be more alien than the little green men.
I am getting something out of the SF thread I started by putting “Practical History: The Wheel” thjere. Maybe getting seminar thinking into SF is not impossible, just very, very hard.
Arnold pointed out that the Middle East DID use the wheel for military machines, but not for constructive building. I had said that the Mayans had wheels on their toys but didn’t use it in any practical way.
But the point is, like all Moots, this led to a rethinking of my thesis:
From Arnold’s input, my thesis is changing. The hhite achievement was the PRACTICAL US of the wheel.
This all interrelates. People are always talking about how early the Chinese, meaning A Chinaman, invented something. They had the mecahnical clock, but that one mechanical clock was moved around and finally destroyed and no more were built.
The Chinese invented printing and used it to make a few playing cards. In the West, it caused the Reformation.
The Chinese had black powder and made some rockets out of it. In the West, it was a major factor in destroying feudalism and eventually the technology expanded to take us to the moon.
The Bell Curve tells us there will be some very smart Chinese. But the seeds they plant do not grow. The one huge technological advance in China was the paddy culture, based on aquatic rice. Aquatic rice was developed in India.
IQ is not a hell of a lot of use if it’s the wrong RACE.
Like many people, I want to know the future. The real future. One of the things that stuck out at me when I first started reading at BUGS was BOB’s prediction that American politics would start becoming racialized. Well, if anyone watched the speech given by Obama yesterday, I think we can conclude that IT’S HERE!
Race has surpassed everything from the war in Iraq to even the economy as the centerpiece of the American political landscape. When a white women Democrat who ran for vice President in 84 starts pointing out things usually only heard on Stormfront, you know times are a changing.
And there is no going back. Now there’s no question that there will be times when the media will try to make it look like the country is near multicultural paradise, but just like the Soviet Mayday parade, this will all be superficial. And there will also be times when power structure will make it look as if white “extremists” are the reason the country is “failing to integrate” (Read: whites are not accepting their own genocide).
The fact is, and it doesn’t matter how much the elite wish it to be, multi-ethnic states do not work. The same way socialist economies don’t work. And all the Mayday parades in the world won’t make them work.
Its been very entertaining watching this Presidential race. And I can’t express how much I want Obama to win. An Obama victory will do more for the interests of the white race than a 10,000 man torchlight parade conducted every weekend. When people ask how this could be, I tell them this antidote:
IN 2004 the San Francisco Mayor started marrying Homosexuals in that city. This appeared to be a huge blow to Christians who worry about that issue. But the result of those actions caused the gay marriage referendum to go on the ballot on almost 20 states. It has been pointed out that this brought much more people to the polls than would have if not for it being on the ballot. Its very possible that the fear of gay marriage brought Bush enough voters to the polls which lead to his victory. So because of the actions of the Mayor of San Francisco, George Bush ended up winning a second term. Now to the Christians, they thought the world was collapsing when this started happening in SF. But in reality, those actions by the SF mayor did more to hurt the gay marriage issue than if he had done nothing at all.
Before learning at BUGS, I would have never learned to think this way. But as BOB has pointed out “you can be king, I just want to run the world.” All that money that people at Stormfront sent to Ron Paul, would have been better spent going to Obama.

“Energy Shortage” is the wrong term
Our problem is not AVAILABLE energy per se. We face a lack of USABLE energy.
As Prometheus points out in an SF thread, hydrogen technology is not a means of producing power, but of packaging it.
As just one example we have an almost unlimited supply of potential hydroelectric power, which is a form of solar power, available. But it hard to put a waterfall in your gas tank.
There is an almost unlimited amount of heat energy two miles beneath your feet and that is peanuts compared to what is further down. But the Planet Earth will not fit into your air conditioner.
Our challenge is to get the energy that is available into our cars and homes. Peak Oil makes sense because we will not be allowed to.
We face a difficulty which, on the technical side, isn’t that different from the ones white technology has routinely dealt with. It reminds me of the attempts at powered flight around 1900. The gas engine had given us the power, we had to ADAPT it.
The Wright Brothers did that in the Kill Devil Hills, not at Kitty Hawk, in December of 1903. But they did not face the problem then that they would now.
First they would have needed a permit to use the Kill Devil sand dunes. The police might not have allowed them to risk their lives that way. Jane Fonda and a guy with a guitar would have demonstrated against their putting that ugly, smelly thing in the air and scaring the birds.
What is creepy is that this is NOT an exaggeration. In fact, these would be just the beginning of their problems.
Let’s get real, gang:
All energy production and use involves risk. The minute anyone tries to do anything, the activists come out, as nuclear energy shows.
We have an army of vested interests any serious technology will have to fight. We have another army of Mommy Professor Activists whose full time job is to protest ANYTHING. We have another army among our three million lawyers — oddly enough, about the same number we have in our prisons — looking for anything to make a lawsuit out of.
What we face is not a shortage of energy, but a glut of Mommy Professor’s kids.
In its issue dedeicated to William Buckley, National Review beagn by its obligatory grovelingover National Review’s evil position on civil rights inthe 50s and 60s. That prompted this rebuttal.
Don’t hold your breath awaiting a reply.
TO THE NATIONAL REVIEW EDITORIAL STAFF:
William Buckley was never a segregationist, but he allowed me to be one and to say so. He published Ernst van den Haag’s criticism of integration – sorry, de-separation – using an argument which is being rediscovered.
It is not a coincidental that today, when the Propositional State is accepted, Europe is imprisoning people for questioning the NUMBERS killed in the Holocaust and the Canadian Human Rights Commission is becoming an embarrassment in its monomaniacal crushing of all dissent on the subject of multiracialism/multiculturalism, and National Review apologizes for allowing any questioning of the de-separationist mentality.
A Propositional State cannot allow free speech or freedom of thought. A society whose sole basis is a proposition cannot allow any thinking that will lead to dissent from that proposition, as I hope this memo demonstrates.
Segregationists are laughed at because they were so right. A Doonesbury cartoon showed his characters discovering a list of student infractions in a 1950s high school. As they were read out, everybody laughed: “Chewing gum, talking in class…” What a bunch of bumpkins!
In the 1950s .drug use was and illegitimacy were considered out-of-control problems confined to blacks and Puerto Ricans. As we predicted, the drug and illegitimacy rate among whites is now higher than either was among blacks back then, and the black rates have gone out of sight.
What was laughed at then as alarmism is now regarded as naiveté.
Liberals were right about one thing: America, like every stable society, was based on hypocrisy. Segregationists said that a society that was REALLY based on non-racialism would lack the cohesion necessary to survive. If you don’t see the truth in that assertion, feel around you. Maybe you’re still in bed.
A generation ago, a black-white couple set out to write a book called “Time on the Cross” which was to be the usual crying session about the suffering of blacks under slavery. They then started READING for it.
The result was a book that got screamingly denounced by all the Mommy Professors who would have demanded the usual Prizes for the one originally intended.
It turned out that as the authors READ THE FACTS, they found that masters encouraged stable families among their blacks. Score one for Family Values! They WORK!
Secondly, a master didn’t want to cause trouble in the population they had to LIVE among.
Thirdly, another practical point. A man who owned a plantation who wanted to dally was rich. He could find plenty of white girls to dally with.
The really awful plantations, and there were plenty of them, were the ones where the owner was an absentee. Unlike Northern factory workers, the resident owner knew every one of his workers BY NAME. He had daily contact with them. So they were treated, BY NINETEENTH STANDARDS, well.
“Time on the Cross” ended up being an econometric study, showing the percentage of total output that went to the workers. It was astonishingly high on plantations compared to other NINETEENTH CENTURY production facilities.
Oddly enough, in tandem with this point, the study concluded that the plantation economy, contrary to the accepted belief, was actually very profitable. It PAID to treat your workers well.
This was a deadly blow to Marxism, which insists that the more you exploited workers, the more you profit.
This, and the confirmation tha families values worked, turned Mommy Professor’s anger into sreaming rage.
There were octoroon parties and like disgusting crap in the cities, but that was voluntary.
Reality is a real damper on Politically Correct history.
Those of you who READ THE COMMENTS will see that, just when I was having some senile fun attacking Simmons, he reminded me of what he had actually said.
This is the sort of thing progressive European Thought Crimes legislation is designed to prevent.
I have SUFFERED. I am not just talking about walking twenty miles in the snow. I am venting about my LIFETIME of SUFFERING.
So how does Simmons deal with this? Does he offer me a cash settlement? Does he grovel about offending someone who has SUFFERED?
He just obsessed on what he actually said.
Yes, what he said said was true. But “The truth is no defense!!”
That was stated by British Authorities.
And not just by British Authorities who had on robes
They were wearing WIGS, too!
When I was a teacher, the accepted orthodoxy was that boys and girls are exactly the same, and they should be taught in exactly the same way.
It was also accepted that you teach kids to read by making them learn whole words, instead of old-fashioned letter sounds.
Every study showed that phonics was hands-down the best way to teach reading, and that single sex schools always did better than mixed schools. But that was ignored.
Now the government is forcing schools to teach phonics, and recommending that girls and boys should be taught differently, if not seperately.
And of course, the same people who ruthlessly imposed the old orthodoxy are now imposing the new one.
I can only imagine how weary Bob feels.
In some way or another, I think that everybody who is concerned about white survival, has a problem, whether a christian or big, tough, non-beleiver. We just can’t see very far ahead. And we are not all that sure of what we can hang on to of the past. It is a bottle neck, and we NEED a broader view.
This is where things like “Practical History” and “SUB Urban” are really helpful. I pass them on, although I really don’t know what anybody thinks.
I don’t see anything here that is faith destroying. Wordism would have HAD to come in, and perhaps even served some purpose for a while. But when it doesn’t serve us anymore, it’s time to get rid of it, while keeping what should never be gotten rid of. This is where I think that we are historically. It’s a feverous time but “Courage, God mends all.”
Shari is making her usual mistake. She provides a brilliant summary but forgot to apologize for it the way she used to. BUGS is corrupting her.
On Christianity, she says:”Wordism would have HAD to come in…”
That is a summary of all I have said in one short phrase. I am SO relieved to see someone here SAY it!
Jesus is a Hero and he kept simplifying things. Instead of insisting people read the Old Testament, he quoted it, simplified it and stated repeatedly that HE, PERSONALLY, stood for Salvation.
Then he went on the Cross to prove it.
Jesus gave us a simple choice::
He said, Believe that I am God, or DON’T.
The practical problem is that one cannot make a Living just preaching THAT. So we got the Wordist bureaucracy we call The Church.
My Nordic soul cannot fail to be in awe of Christ. I may say Yes or I may say No, but the choice he offered is beyond praise.
The Wordist disease that, as Shari says, inevitably grew up around Christ is just a stink.
My opinion is that Yes or No is Christianity. The rest is “Christianity.”
Simmons is right. I came off as a bitter old man in my discussion of the wheel. But my prediction was also right: Simmons did not address my point at all.
The discussion on Stormfront got off onto some guy engaging in public mastur, uh, self congratulation about knowing the difference between a wheel and an axle, but didn’t say anything about the HISTORY of either.
I could have predicted that, but I would have sounded like a bitter old man.
