My nephew-in-law is a computer man who went to college in the late 1970s. He said the awful thing about that time was that young people were told, “It’s all over.”
The future was organizing the resources we have and reducing them so that we would do as little harm to the environment as we could. More recently, our established religion came up with a term for that: carbon count.
Carbon count is a VERY religious term. Man is innately evil. No one can live without a carbon count, precisely in the same way that no human being under our previous established religions could live without sin.
One Calvinist writer said that there were savages who rejoiced at death and mourned at the birth of a child. He said that they were right in the latter case, because that pagan child was born to be damned.
One may hear Christians saying, “Everyone deserves death,” meaning that we all deserve it, and only the intercession of Christ will save us from “”death,”” Notice I put two sets of quotes around that, because that has to be the most blatant use of a code word ever. They mean that everyone deserves Hell, compared to which death would be a mercy beyond comparison.
If you are raised in the Bible Belt the difference leaps out at you when they use that wimpy little “deserve death” bit.
Christianity rose with a preaching of the Gospel. To tell everybody that they deserve eternal agony and despair is not Good News. As Churches became institutions, here was less and less talk of Good News.
And churches that cold afford it filled up with graphic images of Hellish agony.
We have watched Progressivism do precisely the same thing. Early liberals were eugenicists and they looked to a Future of unlimited human progress. Like the early Gospel Christians, they sold Hope. As they became established their doctrine took on the color my niece-in-law suffered under.
The rule is clear enough: Growing faiths teach Hope, established faiths move toward Guilt. The early church was built on Salvation and the high morality the Church claimed. Once the Church got its privileges, the dream of rule by paragons and saints died.
So if they could not claim superior morality, the Church had to fall back on its power over Hell.
This is a conjecture, but in the case of Political Correctness it is far more obvious. Even in my lifetime Communists were claiming that their countries were catching up to the United States in creature comforts. A Workers’ Paradise was literally on the way.
Soviet Science claimed that it would conquer space beginning with Sputnik. All the inventions capitalists had claimed, all the real scientific progress that would lead to a better, more fun life, had actually been invented by Russians.
Few here even know that Progressivism was a Gospel, a Good News that would end all poverty, take us into space, and drive the Evil Ones out of existence.
Now there is no hope whatsoever in progressive or Marxist politics for things to get better for us. Now it is ALL Guilt. Now it is ALL about how we are sinning by wanting too much. Now we are all carbon producers, and our goal is to produce as little sin or carbon until we die.
It is as if, just as Saint Paul picked up the last stages of Zoroastrianism and put it into Christianity, Progressives took the last stages of Christianity and found it very useful for the last stage of their rule as the established religion which has failed.
I mentioned the eventual use of fusion power in an article, so BoardAd, as usual, went and looked it up.
I had the impression that they were still in the stage where it took a million watts to produce one watt by fusion, but it turns out that eleven countries are building a practical fusion generator and a lot of other stuff that I got from BoardAd.
I didn’t even know until recently that thermonuclear bombs have no radioactive fallout. It’s the A-Bomb needed to set off the hydrogen bomb that produces the radioactivity. But all the movies I used to see demanding Peace With the Soviet Union always indicated that the bigger the bomb, the more the fallout.
The point is, these were MY impressions. And I am willing to bet they are everybody else’s impressions except for a very tiny minority. So in passing I admit ignorance. But my ignorance is important, because it reflects the impression people in general have.
I have never seen ANYTHING about fusion energy being around the corner, and I am a documentary junkie. I see endless rows of fans generating electricity that are supposedly the Wave of the Future.
What gets to the public is a lot like the great scientists who agreed to bury the facts about global warming. But it seems to me this is getting a lot more blatant than it was just a generation ago.
Racial IQ differences was a hard fight, but compared to today, it was a fair one. We got suppressed, grants taken away, threats, the whole nine yards. At least we thought it was the whole nine yards.
But now it is getting really creepy. There should be a hundred documentaries on fusion energy. If it is being developed at all today it will be out of sight in a few decades. But it is not discussed.
The fact that NOBODY believes blacks and Hispanics will EVER cease to require affirmative action is a given. As I have said before, there not any group of people as totally and deeply convinced of natural white supremacy than you will find at an NAACP Fund Raiser.
But I was reading an article in the Wilson Quarterly which said that “people are even allowed to say in print that different races have different levels of intelligence.”
Meanwhile, the other side has given up. Rushton and Jensen get top billing in psychological journals, The Bell Curve’s brief discussion on race is conclusive of the debate.
This, as I say, is just plain creepy. Fusion produces no pollution, It will end the global planning effort completely. So how do they handle it?
This is not a conspiracy. To use BUGS terminology, it is simply that there is no reason to produce this information.
One cannot counter silence with detailed information. There is no place to PUT the information.
That’s why it’s called Silence.
A normal person cannot fight this. A normal person would be embarrassed to admit he doesn’t even remember the facts BoardAd gave him, much less wow em with his expertise. But I am not trying to wow anybody.
My expertise is politics. My knowledge is what the average person is exposed to. I keep using the Mantra to hammer the first hole to start moving through.
As Horus points out, this is contrary to what movement people, particularly older ones, do. Above all else, they do not want to go into an argument and be shown lacking.
I couldn’t care less.
This is a war of repetition slamming against the Wall of Silence.
You can impress people or you can win.
My niece recently died of cancer. Her father, a doctor, was very relieved.
She was the only other convert to Catholicism in the family, though we all left the Methodist Church once it became a political party. She attended the Melkite Church where I was baptized. I called her priest and he was there at her deathbed but what he said gave me the shivers.
He talked about how she was out of her pain now. Her father and her priest were both clearly relieved at that.
Even if they decide not to EXTEND your agony, they are not allowed to ease your death. So they “take you off life support.” That’s OK for a coma, but in many other cases they simply allow a conscious patient to suffocate or worse.
A priest online once told that every extra instant of Life was a blessing, even if you were in the last stages of spinal cancer. Nobody SEES this pro-life mentality in action. it’s a throw-back to pre-anesthetic surgery, except back then you were allowed alcohol.
Like circumcision, this is a routine agony inflicted in every hospital. It is not entirely accidental that it is inflicted on the two most helpless groups in our society, the newborn and the terminally ill.
Pro-life demands that a girl carry a rapist’s child and raise it. A mulatto baby has ruined many a white girl’s life.
It is particularly interesting that the pro-life movement is so CRUEL. But they try to shame abortionists by claiming they are the only ones interested in the helpless babies. But helpless people in agony like my niece, they are interested in not in the slightest.
Nowadays when people go to hear Dr. Kevorkian talk about assisted suicide, they are surprised that MOST of what he talks about is actually why white people should UNITE! The man is on parole, and very few parolees of advanced age talk a lot about the crime they were imprisoned for in public.
But it is of interest to me that the man who saw terminal agony and knew he would eventually go to prison for fighting it is now talking about white racial unity.
The media and his audiences are mystified by both those actions on the part of Dr. Death.
One final question, why is Kevorkian called Doctor Death but not one of the hundred million other doctors is called Doctor Agony?
I experienced the media bubble personally after the 1980 election. The media did not know anybody who had made the Reagan landslide.
And they were PROUD of it.
They even had ME on National Public Radio at least three times! They admitted freely that they didn’t know anybody in the group that had nominated and elected Reagan, but if you listen as carefully as I do, it was noticeable that they were no at all apologetic about it.
In any other country on earth, it would be considered a bit odd if no one in the media had any contacts in the group that just took over the government by popular vote. But the American media considered itself a world unto itself. You belonged to it because you did NOT belong to the masses.
Reporters who wanted to be “in” referred to American between New York and Los Angeles as “flyover country” even if that is where they worked
ESPECIALLY if that was where they worked. They had to work harder to prove they weren’t hicks.
This is a lot less blatant today, but it was absolutely universal when I was coming up. They made a point of it. As “inner circles” the media people pointed out that they didn’t know anybody in the Reagan ranks to show that they were above all that. Of course big city sophisticates didn’t know those people.
They also made a blatant point of who they DID know. I remember one time during the 1980 convention when they followed a liberal Republican around, someone they knew well, and he bitched constantly about how none of the people he had “worked with all these years” were there.
Well, if you are part of a group that has consistently lost both Houses of Congress for a generation, one might expect even the dumbass Republicans to cut them out, but that was of course never mentioned as a reason.
I got the impression he thought there was a “vast right-wing conspiracy” at work.
And after Reagan got a landslide against a sitting president and led Republicans get to a majority in a House of Congress — the Senate — for the first time since 1952, they kept repeating that “the votes are in the middle of the road.”
Jerry Ford kept repeating that until he died, but he was the original person Lyndon Johnson said couldn’t walk and chew gum at the same time.
Republicans won in 1980 and in 1994. Both times they went what the media called “far right.”
And today you can’t be a professional commentator unless you say, “the votes are in the middle of the road.”
The media are not in business to be right. If you are a member of the media, you have to answer to your own bureaucracy. I can’t remember anyone being punished for being dead wrong, as long as you are dead wrong saying what FITS.
Yes, it sounds like I am repeating what you already know. My problem is that everyone who SAYS the media are out of touch act like it is IN touch.
It is about time we started seeing this advantage as a PRACTICAL reality. It doesn’t do a hell of a lot of good to keep noticing that the other army makes a consistent set of errors unless you take advantage of them.
There is a difference between a legitimate business and a protection racket. Business PRODUCE. Protection rackets DESTROY.
White and Asian immigrants got there by production. Today the average Catholic has a higher income than the average Protestant. Asians made almost no use of the discrimination laws.
The reason blacks and their imitators wear their pants down to their knees is because people in jail aren’t allowed to wear belts. So blacks wear their pants down to show they are like those much-admired Tough Guys who end up behind bars.
You will never find a group of people as unanimously convinced of the innate inferiority of the black race than you will at an NAACP meeting. I am saying this from an understanding of people. No one at that meeting believes that blacks will EVER get anywhere near whites in accomplishment, no matter how they are educated or how many years go by.
If you can’t make it by accomplishment, the only alternative is protection. The civil rights movement didn’t really get going until the riots. The blacks only burned their own section of town, but you could see smoke around the Capitol Building.
The media stopped reporting on riots when they became general. This is confusing today, because those riots scared whites into passing the Voting Rights Act and gave a major boost to the black movement. You would think the media would have been delirious at this sign of black rebellion.
But this was the early sixties, and the media were as out of touch with Americans as they are today. So they simply stopped reporting on riots. They got tens of thousands of letters from white people who could see the smoke from their homes, but it became a Non-Happening.
All three networks suppressed any such news. Finally one anchor said, yes, there were riots, and he listed some of the cities they had occurred in, unreported. But it was certainly no apology. He had that New York City look on his face, irritated that they had demanded this and giving it to them just this once.
Now that we have for over a generation determined that blacks and liberals get what they want from protection, provided either by government punishment or violence, this silence on the part of the media back then seems strange.
But this is an important point: one of the things we have going for us is that the commentators and the experts on public opinion live in a bubble so isolated from reality that people don’t BELIEVE it, least of all the people who keep talking about Genius Conspiracies.
This is a good example.
The reason the media did not report the riots after Watts was because they were afraid of a White Backlash. The media did not realize the nature of the World War II Generation, and thought they were dealing with Americans who were capable of a backlash.
There were programs on TV until the 1960s showing the danger of lynch mobs, though there hadn’t been a lynch mob anywhere since before the Slave Generation took over. Dope dealers in schoolyards and child-killers who would have been lynched by actual Americans were being let go routinely by the courts.
But the media didn’t notice.
Eric Hoffer, who knew America intimately, laughed at the constant liberal saying in the 1960s that Americans were “a violent society.”
He said “Modern America is a bunch of sheep;” he pointed out, “We’re a nation of cowards.”
But the media kept believing in white resistance a generation after the Slave Crowd took over.
They didn’t know.
They hadn’t looked.
They had no one to ask.
It has been noted that most eugenicists had no children.
It has also been noted that most Secretaries of the Treasury leave household finances to their wives.
It was a revolution when Robert Ardrey revealed to the world that War Heroes were not restricted to human beings. To a reading audience that was absolutely astonished at he time, he gave example after example after example of social animals of numberless types who gave their lives for the survival of the group.
What was remarkable was how gross a violation his examples often were of the tenets of Marxism. The lowest-ranking males who were denied any offspring of their own were as likely to give their lives for the group that oppressed them as were the alphas.
No Army Ant will ever father one of its kind.
We knew that about ants, but it was a shock to find that war was not a result of a lack of Wordism in higher animals. But the reason is exactly the same. Nature gives us one purpose, and one purpose only: to produce offspring, of our own or of our group, who look like us.
It was thought that birds made their noises to attract females. We have only learned during my lifetime that birds make their noises to keep other INTERBREEDABLE birds out of their territory. Females go to the one with the best territory.
In our society a sterile billionaire will do exactly the same thing: he will give his money to his form of Wordism. He could have left it for white orphans as he did before, but now that is forbidden. His unnatural identity, his Book, gets the money to produce more who say what it says.
In a tiny society like a lion pride, the one or two males lions who rule it will produce all the offspring and kill the kittens of its predecessor. But in a large society each individual takes a separate role in group survival, and the lower class in a non-human society is as dedicated to the survival of the group as those in the top echelon.
This is how NATURE works. Nature is only interested in one issue, the issue of one’s own type in competition with other GROUPS. Nature is the opposite of the Class Struggle. Nature is the opposite of the Libertarians.
Like nature, we are obsessed with one issue.
This is just a brief update. We are getting a steady 200+ gigabytes of downloads a month. No matter what I do or say. And I put out a new mp3 every week (or every other week). The information is GETTING out there. The old white nationalists and conservatives are being outgunned by the younger new comers. Fresh blood! The old guys refused to obey and get on a consistent message. They are too damn thick headed. They are now getting over run by the new young people who are starved to make changes.
Now the White Nationalists are being forced via peer pressure to mention genocide. And it is about damn time. All you have to do is surf whitenewsnow.com to see the young ones go to town. They are not posting on BUGS but they are reading it. That is a start. And they are posting the Mantra all around. I am trying to get them posting on BUGS more.
The Mantra and White Rabbit Genocide have been downloaded at least 400 times already for may. So we are steady as she goes. The stuff is definitely working. Also we have over 1200 downloads already for May alone……ON THE FIRST SHOW. So we are still picking up new listeners.
The first thing a lion does when he takes over the pride is kill all the kittens fathered by his predecessor.
Monkeys will allow orangutans inside their territory, but they will kill another monkey who tries to get in.
Ants will eat anything they can, but they only make war against other ants. They do it out of pure prejudice. Those are another kind of ANT. They shall not pass.
Nothing is more unnatural than for ANY social animal to be at peace with other groups of its own kind.
The crucial point is that this is the OPPOSITE of what was considered natural before the latter part of the twentieth century. From Rousseau to Marx to Libertarians, it was assumed that animals had no borders, and no class system. All human institutions were the products of human IDEAS,
There was only one exception, survival of the fittest. But survival of the fittest was entirely INDIVIDUAL, not SOCIAL. Each individual animal fought each other animal. Beyond that, all was equal, all was borderless.
The simple fact is that this whole world view has been exploded. Totally destroyed. The question you might want to ask others is why this complete revolution in thought has affected NONE of the Wordist concepts we inherited from before it happened.
Nothing is more unnatural than The Family of Man. But before 1950 this was considered the only ALTERNATIVE to rule by single bullies, single killers, Darwinist animals of “nature red in tooth and claw.”
Nothing is more natural than that a single interbreedable animal holds its territory against ITS OWN KIND. Every social animal down to the ant is involved in war against groups of its own kind. The survival of the fittest is entirely a GROUP effort within the Family of Chimpanzees or the Family of Lions or the Family of Ants.
An orangutan is allowed into chimpanzee territory because it does NOT interbreed with them.
This is what every Wordist philosophy is, wholly unconsciously, BASED on. You form groups based on the Word, not on nature. The Marxist kills the Orthodox within his territory. A religion does not care what color you are, but it will kill you if you try to cross yourself the wrong way inside ITS territory.
Killings in the wars of feudalism were child’s play until we started getting wars of Religion.
Humans will always be divided. But each form of Wordism will declare, in the midst of a bloodletting five centuries from now, that they are Universal, that they make a Family of Man. When two Family of Man Universalisms go to war, there is no compromise possible.
But Wordism is a parasite. The fighting between two groups in nature is for one reason: the survival of the part of their kind which smells like them in the case of animals who are smell oriented, the survival of those who LOOK like them in cases, like man, where they are sight-oriented.
Non-racism simply means you adhere to one of the tens of thousands of forms of Wordism which exist for a Book and which takes all your efforts away from where nature PUTS them all, your genes. Wordism is pure parasite.
The Catholic Church has long used the term “Orthodox” as the title of the Eastern Church. At the same time it insisted that only Rome was Orthodox. The Catholic Church uses the term the Episcopal Church to describe the established faith in England.
But the term “Episcopal” has only one meaning: a church ruled by bishops. Rome does not recognize Anglican bishops as bishops: “all the surplices on earth cannot make an Episcopal minister into a priest.”
Rome refers to Jews as Jews. Yet they also declare that they, not the Jews, are the real inheritors of the Old Testament. One of the two horns on every bishop’s hat represents the Old Testament, that HE is true inheritor of Moses.
It seems obvious that the six million people in the Roman Empire who called themselves “Jews” were overwhelmingly Hellenic Jews. Before Jesus, a group of seventy-something scholars wrote THEIR Old Testament, but it was NOT a translation. It was declared THE CANON.
The Hellenic Jewish historian Josephus of whom a lot of us have heard would have gone ballistic if he heard Luther declare that only writings in Hebrew were the real Old Testament. That would be like telling a religious Catholic that only the Episcopal Church has real bishops.
As Christianity grew, the Hellenic Jews disappeared from history. There are two possible explanations of this. Either the giant Hellenic Jewish community accepted Christ, the Greek word for Messiah, as THEIR Messiah, or the Roman Empire killed six million Jews.
Either the Hellenic Jews became Christian or, for once, the Holocaust Deniers were successful.
That latter is worth thinking about. Looking at the tens of billions of dollars the last Holocaust brought in, this newly discovered Roman one could be a bonanza.
But, like Orthodox and Episcopalian, “Jews” is just a convenient title. The Jews are no more THE Jews than the Pope using the term Orthodox makes HIS orthodoxy invalid.
This is no quibble. Remember that the State of Israel and all the tens of billions of dollars and American blood shed for it rests on the undisputed claim that Israel belongs to JEWS, and that what we call Jews are actually the only Chosen People.
No, this is definitely NOT a quibble.
This “quibble” would have been of terrific importance to Luther and Calvin. In their time the people who called themselves “Jews” were the ones historically used Hebrew. In fact, the Early Church would have specifically denied that the group which did NOT accept Jesus — the GREEK version of Joshua — as their Messiah, were still Jews at all.
There were a number of attempts to remove the entire Old Testament from Holy Scriptures in the new church. But the new church hung solidly to its claim to be the ONLY inheritors of what was once called Judaism.
By the time of Luther “Jews” were called Jews. So Luther removed the entire middle of Bible from his canon because of this mistake in terminology. The Fundamentalist branch of Christianity insists that America fight and die for Israel because they do not know about this “quibble.”
Because of their ovine ignorance of history, our so-called “Christians” do not know that, in the eyes of early Christians, Judaism was a religion waiting for the coming of the Messiah. In the eyes of the early church, Jews CEASED to EXIST — Paul says that specifically.
If this is a quibble Krakatoa was a light tremor.
One writer in my New Right Papers anthology talked about an experience he had in the USSR when it was still ruled by Social Progress. Apparently to show the flaws in capitalist production, he was shown the hula hoops. There was a giant warehouse containing millions of hula hoops the USSR had produced at the time of that craze in the 50s.
They still had them. It is an example of what I said before, that Communists have no way to figure out what consumer goods to produce, so they produce whatever the market economy produces. But to them, what they were showing him was how his wonderful market economy produced things nobody wanted.
But the hula hoop was not a planned event. They just grew and manufacturers produced them. Then the craze died and they stopped producing them. That’s what you get when Mommy Professor doesn’t do your planning for you.
To my writer, that was an example of how stupid the planned economy was. But to them, the fact that they couldn’t give the damned things away to their citizens demonstrated how ridiculous this capitalist product was.
My point is that the Soviets had no more idea what was going on than the CIA did. They had more agents there than we did by a LONG shot, “the KGB is everywhere.” The CIA budget is a secret, and I can tell you as a staffer for the ranking member of the Internal Security Committee, formerly House Un-American Activities Committee, that if you saw their expenditures you would be as lost as you are now.
But between the Defense Intelligence Agency, the CIA and the others, we spent billions on knowing what went on inside the USSR, from qualified experts.
Lots of information was produced, tens of millions of words poured out, but nobody saw the USSR coming down, here or there. This never seemed to bother anybody, and certainly nobody in the Intelligence Community was ever criticized for it or lost a night’s sleep over it.
So back to one of our basic questions: Why was this information PRODUCED? Why were all those people paid so much and no one ever asked why they didn’t see the whole thing coming down? If Pepsi-Cola went out of business, went out of business next week, and no one in the Coca-Cola Company had any idea it was happening or why it happened, I guarantee you there would be a LOT of empty seats to be filled in the Executive Suites in Atlanta.
We know all those executives and experts WERE hired, and we know they had not the slightest hint the USSR was going to disappear overnight. We also know that those who haven’t retired are now promoted and well-paid in the Department of Homeland Security.
In fact it was exactly those same executives and experts and the people they hired and trained who were in charge on September 11, 2001. By now almost all of those who missed on the Soviet Incident AND on 9/11 have gotten fat pensions and/or big-pay jobs as Advisors in the private sector. But their spirit, and their level of competence, lives on in those they made experts to succeed them.
And no one notices.
Anyone who actually knows anything about the Communist economies, euphemistically referred to by the UN Statistics books as “Centrally Planned Economies,” has got a good laugh at what Lenin and his fellow Intellectuals and Idealists ran into when they started to plan production.
For instance, they had to have quotas for glass production. They tried stating it in pounds of glass, but what came out from the terrified managers was glass slabs weighing hundreds of pounds and useless for anything.
And yes, Virginia, they actually TRIED the alternative: stating the quotas in square inches. You have probably guessed, but they didn’t, that glass came pouring out a fiftieth of an inch think and very little of it was ever anything but shards when it was actually delivered.
The problem with Communism was never the long debate about Moral Relativism argued by William F. Buckley in his long Latinate words that impressed conservatives so much. The problem was that Communism is SILLY.
If you listen to my latest interview with Truck Roy, you will hear his question tome about Communism. My reply was, “What will you PRODUCE?” It’s too basic not to be shocking.
Truck Roy, like anybody else, said, ”Food, consumer goods.” I don’t know ANYBODY who was EVER ready for that question.
The answer is that Lenin and Company knew what “goods” were. They knew what “goods” were because they were what people wanted. But are you going to produce the same goods FOREVER? A Communist planner always assumes there will be market economies out there showing him what production to plan.
Hell, even when they had lots of markets to imitate, they couldn’t find the right WORDS to put the quotas in. Factories in the USSR always stacked up huge piles of parts they couldn’t use. The Russian economy was a total shambles under the USSR, always. The people always lived like third-worlders while their reports to the UN showed them catching up with the USA in per capita income.
It is amazing. The entire economy of the Soviet Union, more than three hundred million white people, never produced ONE SINGLE consumer good anybody outside the USSR could put on the market!
Nobody notices. The CIA reported the growth statistics put out by terrified Soviet managers as the truth. Some of us spent some time inside those countries, and we couldn’t believe anyone could say that. But the Ivy Leaguers didn’t go to the USSR in anything but first-class seats, and they sure as hell didn’t go into the department stores I went into.
The CIA’s Ivy League view was exactly like the John Birch Society’s view. The USSR was a Giant Conspiracy run by Evil Geniuses who were using slave labor to catch up with the United States. The concept that the USSR was SILLY was as alien to them as it was to the Intelligence Community.
No one SAW the Soviet Absurdity. No one noticed as it toppled over.
And nobody considers that odd.
They call them Adult Movies and Adult Books. But they contain the words the Bad Boys wrote on the bathroom wall when I was in grammar school.
Before multiculturalism a person would be embarrassed if he couldn’t find more than one adjective for a ten-minute tirade.
I wonder how many DIFFERENT adjectives one can find in a ten-minute rap “song?”
And it is just a little bit late to start protecting young people from “bad language.” Especially if you want integration and multi-culturalism. It is not entirely accidental that our obscenity standards collapsed at the same time segregation did.
Ignoring your own cultural rules. That is what multiculturalism IS!
But the Christians say, “Let’s us play like it didn’t happen. And I’m all FOR integration.”
One Christian group considered my last book and was shocked because the word “Bullshit!” was in it. That was what they SAID. The fact is that what they consider Society would have condemned them for it.
That’s the society they are supposed to be defying. The point of the book would be to fortify their delicate little babies for the barrage they will get in college.
They told me they want to send their kids to college but they don’t want them to hear a word like bullshit.
It HAPPENED, dumbass. Now get with the program. You can’t insist that your children learn Black Culture and come back unfamiliar with a harmless term like bullshit.
After, what IS multiculturalism? A culture involves DISAPPROVAL of some things. The Multicult calls that bigotry.
For example, some years ago a “totally radical” convention was sponsored by Gays and Lesbians. They invited everybody who had been shunned by the Dominant Culture. Apparently they invited people on the basis of their being denounced for sex practices, and I don’t need to remind a group on the Internet how far out THAT goes.
But the whole thing was almost ruined when they found out that NAMBLA had been invited to send a delegation. They withdrew THAT invitation.
Well, because the North American Man-Boy Love Association was outside the limits.
Well, men should not be molesting boys. But what if the boys consent? Well, a child can’t give valid consent. That excuse works fine for someone INSIDE the society which passed those laws, but isn’t the whole point of your gathering a DEFIANCE of all those cultural norms?
Sure, kids in general are different from adults in general, but a lot of kids are smarter than many adults will ever be. We have racism, sexism, speciesism — how can a dog give informed consent to the delegation that was there promoting bestiality?
So isn’t tossing all those under the age of informed consent blatant ageism?
No one in the media asked them that, of course.
You know why the media didn’t bring it up. In a society where the Multicult is Holy Writ to our established PC religion, no one wants to talk about the obvious fact that to accept all cultures involves getting rid of the strictures of your own culture.
That’s what multiculturalism IS.
A bishop recently denounced the Internet because “too free a flow of information leads to cultural relativism.” But that same bishop would insist he is all for multiculturalism.
Maybe PETA and the Society for the promotion of Sex With Animals could get together and tell us how animals consent. It wouldn’t be any more screwed up than what that bishop would have to explain
This is something you will have to deal with, so let me talk about it. Since you deal in the Mantra, unapologetic repetition is something you get used to.
I looked at the reviews in of my last book on Amazon. The only person who gave it low marks was the one who said he hadn’t read it. But almost everybody who reviewed it favorably complained that it was very repetitious.
It was repetitious as hell.
Look, gang, when you are writing a book to point out what a blind man should be able to see, how do you avoid repeating the exact same thing over and over? To me, someone like O’Reilly who just can’t understand why professors, who consider themselves Intellectuals and Idealists are leftists is an idiot.
I use the time advisedly, because idiot is technical term, legal, not medical. A moron is one who tests 50 to 70 on IQ tests. An imbecile is, legally, one who scores 30 to 50. An idiot is below 30.
Here we have a grown man who is being listened to respectfully by millions who cannot understand why a clique which defines ITSELF as Idealists and Intellectuals goes all out insisting that Idealists and Intellectuals, instead of businessmen or working people, should take over the world.
How can anybody but an idiot not SEE that? But when I pointed it out for decades, all I got was the cowlike look from whoever I was talking to, and then a comment on recent comments on recent events. Then they would completely miss the basic point.
So the book sounds a lot like the way I felt when I wrote it, like a person shoving a puppy’s nose in its poo, trying to say, “This is what it is.” You have to do over and over and over and some puppies NEVER get it.
The puppy wants to make up for it by showing you how much he loves you or how cute he is.
And all puppies, by definition, are idiots.
Now that BUGs is giving me some MINDS to talk to, I would do the book better.
I am always concerned about being repetitious here. If I knew that everyone here had been reading this blog for years it would move much faster. But we are in the opposite position. Not only am I dealing with new readers, my regular readers are themselves involved in missionary work.
And the repetition keeps ME on track. Writing is, when you come right down to it, talking to yourself. One of the sure marks of a beginning writer is that he misses steps. He goes right on and you wonder what the hell he is talking about. He is writing about something that seems obvious to him, but took him YEARS to figure out, and he expects the reader to follow right along.
Our work is a bit like math. You have to go all the way to the basic assumption and go through the basic stuff each time. But God knows I don’t want to make my stuff as boring as math classes!
We don’t have compulsory attendance laws to allow us to make our teaching a torture they have to sit through by law. Math could be made interesting, but, as with all monopolies, the product just gets worse and worse. We don’t have that luxury.
I think the reason you don’t complain about my going right back to repeating the assumptions and the instances is because you have to do it yourself. A good writer, like a good preacher, will tell you that the audience had better know at least 95% of what he is telling them. The reader or listener should go back through the basic stuff effortlessly, and be willing to do it because he want to know where you are going THIS TIME.
New preachers have a way of telling their congregation the stuff they learned in theology school. As one old guy complained, “All I heard was a lot about the Nebadrezzers and the Whoopdedooinites and I didn’t understand a word of it.” It takes YEARS for a young preacher to learn to talk to PEOPLE, and most of them never do.
You go into a big church packed with people and the young seminarians will think the preacher is an old ignorant buffoon, “THIS guy has a DOCTORATE in Theology?” But they couldn’t get twenty of the thousand people sitting in that church to come back voluntarily after their first sermon.
The old preacher spends almost all of his time reminding people of what they are familiar with. As CS Lewis said, “Prophets do not come into the world to tell us new truths, but to remind us of the old ones.” That couldn’t describe BUGSers better.
We are here reminding people of what simple loyalty is, how stupid a person looks when he is repeating nonsense and thinking he is being smart.
Successful preachers, like prophets, go back over what the listener is familiar, but they also know he is GOING SOMEWHERE with it. He is tying the old strings into a new knot. Prophets tell people the old truths, but they remind them of how those old instances apply to the new situation.
Early one morning, for some reason I forget, I got off at the Metro at Union Station and came up to Capitol Hill. This meant I had to walk up to the Hill, go in on the Senate side, and take the underground trolley to the House side where my office was.
When I walked in on the Senate side, the “black” senator from Massachusetts, the blue-eyed one, had come in just ahead of me. The policeman had to search my briefcase unless I was with a member of congress. I showed him my staff ID and he asked, “Are you with Senator Brooke?”
Brooke was well on his way and I could have nodded and gone on in. I said, almost, “NO!”
Most of us men have special fear of being called queer or child molesters and so forth. We always fear that SOMEONE will believe it.
In politics I have always had the same sort of queasy feeling about being considered one of THEM:
Little White Bobby trailing after his liberal Republican Black Idol.
My actual views would strike the average yuppie or Mommy Professor as a lot more perverted than homosexuality or even NAMBLA membership, but that doesn’t bother me. My feeling of creepiness has to do with being mistaken for something Bob Whitaker considers perverted and sick.
I would be shamed to be considered Senator Brooke’s Little White Worshipper because that is a sick idea TO ME. However untrue it is, if the guard believed it, I would be shamed in MY OWN eyes.
It is what I call intellectual shame. It is not logical. I could respect another senior staffer if he was hired by Brooke for his merits, and if he really was a liberal Republican. Hell, I ain’t prejudiced. Some of my best friends were members of the Ripon Society.
But the idea of someone thinking I was one of them gives me the same chill a guy gets from being thought a homo. As they kept repeating on Seinfeld, “I am NOT gay.”
“Though there’s nothing WRONG with it.”
This is not a creepy feeling that only belongs to old right-wingers.
I think most people normally get this feeling when someone tries to classify what they think of as their own ideas. I have had liberals scream at me when I repeated that what they had said was a standard liberal position. What can you say when someone has five times in a row quoted standard political positions.
I am SHAMING them by saying they sound like a tape recorder, though they do. But I find that the ones with a sense of that shame are now the exceptions.
What gets to me about yuppies and other Mommy Professor Products is their total lack of simple intellectual SHAME. How can they be such walking, talking mental clones and it doesn’t even bother them?
As Anne Rice said, these are the sort of people who ask each other, “Are WE still boycotting grapes?” Four of them on a single block will have the same bumper sticker.
Most of us really dislike it when it turned out that the person we are talking to has heard the JOKE we are telling before. These people tell you that the highlight of their life was when they were heroically out marching with a thousand other students shouting for something very single professor had advocated in class.
They called it a Campus Protest.
Protest against WHAT?
This is straight out of 1984 or Red China. How can you be brave independent members of a Campus Protest against Racism when anyone who says anything non-PC on race will be lucky just to be lynched
By minority students while white students cheer them on?
“We CARED in those days. We marched on campus.”
In 1984 every time the government announced another Five-Year Plan had been a success “spontaneous demonstrations” would break out, the signs already prepared. Orwell was not exactly prescient about this. The same thing happened all the time inn Stalin’s Russia.
But how can you BRAG about marching for a Politically Correct cause on a Politically Correct campus?
Stalin’s slaves did it, but I never heard one of them later claim he was BRAVE to do it.
Once again, I ask you, “Does this sound familiar?”
Have you many times wondered how someone could have such a lack of intellectual SHAME that he claims he was brave to go out and agree with everybody else?
My political specialty, which no one else seem to be able to do, was getting into grassroots movements of working people, the ones later called Reagan Democrats.
Truck Roy is too young to know about my work with the Independent Truckers, when we shut the whole Washington, DC area down. He is an actual, honest-to-Betsy Trucker, so he knows ABOUT that. I personally got it going, but, as Ben Franklin advised, I let others have the “credit.”
It was easy to do. I did the press releases. But by then I was already famous among grass-roots protestors.
I was happy to note that a Stormfronter who is a member of the Electrical Workers International HAD heard of my work with them in Louisville, where he resides.
Pretty good for something I did almost three decades ago.
Conservatives were always talking about REACHING The Working People. They would ask me what The Secret was. I told them, “We found out what they needed and provided it.”
They KEPT asking me what the Secret was. Then they would meet with each other and talk about Reaching the Working People.
Then they would once again ask me what the Secret was.
The Communist Daily World, organ of the CPUSA, denounced my Populist Forum as a huge, heavily financed organization. Part of the huge right-wing conspiracy, you know. There were three of us, and we had no budget. The CPUSA always claimed it Spoke For the Working Class, but they didn’t know any more actual working stiffs than conservatives did.
Our Secret was safe from THEM.
The conservatives would ask me once again what the Secret was. Then they would go back and meet on the question of How to Reach the Working Class.
Does this begin to sound familiar? Does it make it clear to you why I am not exactly stupefied by the fact that I keep winning battles in front of them and people see me do it and then never follow my example?
Well, I had learned the why of this before I started getting into the grassroots revolts of working folk.
My formula was, “Find out what they need and provide it.”
Well, the problem was that the people who wrote and spoke for a living couldn’t reach the grassroots protests of working people against things like offensive textbooks and busing.
What WAS this unbridgeable gap? It was the fact that they didn’t know any working people and the working people didn’t know any people who were on their side and who could write and speak professionally.
So our press man would call up grassroot groups and ask if they could use us three people who spoke and wrote for a living. Once they found out we really would, we got more calls than we could handle. In other words, if the gap is between people who can do public relations and working people, you can bridge it by offering your work TO the working people because it is just what they need.
Find out what they need and provide it.
I got some writing money from National Review and a couple of other conservative publications, but we never charged a nickel and we never had a budget.
Conservative money was going into financing huge conventions dedicated to discussing How to Reach the Working People. At one I happened to attend, a woman I met had just attended a large seminar discussing — guess what? — my own first book.
I didn’t know about that seminar or the many others like it, though there were a lot of them at those Seminars about Reaching the Working Class Protests.
It never occurred to me that the convention-holders, who knew I was there, would even consider having ME address the group at all. Have you ever heard of a group that had seminars on a book in a place where they knew the author was and didn’t ask him to sit in?
The point I am making is that I not only didn’t resent it, I would have be flabbergasted if they had asked me to be there. They were raising money on DISCUSSIONS on how to Reach the Working People, not on someone who was DOING it.
Does any of this begin to sound familiar, Mantra-Folk?
