Bitter Irony

This post makes me laugh and cry. These are all Bob, in so many ways. He is missed every day. 

Someone sent me some quotes that appeal to my bitterly ironic sense of humor.

On the other hand, in the midst of all this bitterness is the one I live by:

“Be kind, everyone you meet is fighting a tough battle too.”

If you always remember that, you can have the bitterness all intelligent people learn, but you won’t HURT anybody with it.

Here they are:

Don’t kick a man when he’s down unless you’re certain he won’t get up.

Indecision is the key to flexibility.

You can’t tell which way the train went by looking at the track.

Be kind, everyone you meet is fighting a tough battle too.

There is no substitute for genuine lack of preparation.

This is as bad as it can get…but don’t bet on it.

By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.

Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.

Sometimes too much drink is not enough.

The facts, although interesting, are generally irrelevant.

The world gets a little better every day, and worse in the evening.

Someone who thinks logically is a nice contrast to the real world.

The other line always moves faster…until you get in it.

Anything worth fighting for is worth fighting dirty for.

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.

Friends may come and go but enemies accumulate.

It’s hard to be nostalgic when you can’t remember anything good.

I have seen the truth and it makes no sense.

If you think that there is good in everybody, you haven’t met everybody.

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

One seventh of your life is spent on Monday.

The more you run over a dead cat, the flatter it gets.

Happiness is good health and a bad memory.

Do unto others.

Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural Stupidity.

Plagiarism saves time.

Teamwork…
means never having to take all the blame yourself.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups.

We waste time, so you don’t have to.

Go the extra mile. It makes your boss look like an incompetent slacker.

The Romans did not create a great empire by having meetings; they did it by killing all those people who opposed them.

If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos… then you probably haven’t completely understood
the seriousness of the situation.

Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exist elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

As you journey through life take a minute every now and then to give a thought for the other fellow. He could be plotting something.

If you find something you like, buy a lifetime supply, because they will stop making it.

Always remember you’re unique, just like everyone else.

Freedom Screamers

Written By Bob Whitaker

George Orwell explained in his novel 1984 that a rational society must include “the right to say that two plus two equals four.” In The Crown Versus Joseph Pierce, 1987, the British court ruled to send a man to prison under the Hate Laws by declaring that “The truth is no defense.”

This phrase, “The truth is no defense,” has a long and disreputable history. In 1796, due to the support of George Washington, John Adams became the last president elected on the Federalist Party ticket by a hair’s breadth, beating Jefferson by three electoral votes.

In 1798, the Federalist Party won its last national victory. Due to the XYZ Affair, it carried a huge majority of both Houses of Congress. It passed the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1799, which largely outlawed criticism of government policy. It saw the first amendment as gun controllers see the second amendment today, as something that wasn’t really there.

After 1798 Jefferson did his critiquing anonymously. Publishers and editors went to prison in droves. One of their major demands was to get rid of the British-derived doctrine that, when it came to the King and His policies, “The truth is no defense.”

In 1800, the Federalist Party was defeated at every level. It began its steady slide into nonexistence. The PEOPLE, not the courts, got rid of that whorish doctrine, “The truth is no defense” in America.

Now we accept the idea that the truth is no defense in fact, if not in words. I lived with that for decades as scholar after scholar was ruined for telling the truth about innate racial differences. When one was fired, the screaming New York Jews and those who learned from them cowed the Weakest Generation by screaming, “Six Million Jews!!!!”

We won, now that even the New York Times says that, “the hereditarian view of racial differences is far more acceptable today than it was” (previously). But the cost was staggering and the heroes forgotten.

And the LESSON is forgotten.

In the 1960s I listened quizzically as libertarians went into great detail about how Ayn Rand or LeFevre or some other Libertarian Truth had justified freedom in a tome. I thought how EUROPEAN this was. Screamers had crushed the old American idea that I have freedom because I will do what I damned well please.

The AMERICAN version of freedom is Grandma sitting on the front porch with a shotgun waiting for the government to run over her house to build a road. The AMERICAN version of freedom of speech is not a tome and a Wordist doctrine justifying freedom, but “two plus two equals four.”

Like everything in life, freedom is not a doctrine, it is a matter of sense. I will do anything I damned well please. If you say my money should go to “something worthwhile” instead of what, IN YOUR OPINION, is a “trivial” thing, I don’t give a damn, no matter how loud you shriek.

So the Objectivists tried to shout ME down at the University of Virginia for my racism. It didn’t work, by a long shot. So they stopped speaking to me. Since all they would have had to say to me was already in a book, that was no sacrifice.

I keep begging you to drop all that Wordism. ALWAYS INSERT “IN YOUR OPINION” when the shriekers shriek. We don’t need a Russian Jewess, bless her heart, to tell us THAT. Ayn Rand was just the only one who had to guts to shriek down the New York shriekers in the age of the Weakest Generation.

When they shriek “racism” no one dares ask, “What, IN YOUR OPINION, IS Racism?” No respectable conservative EVER presses that question, or even ASKS it.

The anti-racists (anti-whites) were shouting, and for the obedience-trained Weakest Generation, that was enough. They learned In World War II that the highest honor was to obey a sergeant who screamed in your face. Their children learned from them, and their libertarian children needed a BOOK to deal with the shouters.

Once it takes a BOOK to justify freedom, it doesn’t EXIST any more.

Thugs

Written By Bob Whitaker – From his book Why Johnny Can’t Think

When I was young and snakes had feet, a professor named Schumpeter wrote a book called Communism, Socialism and Democracy. Back then, in the 1950s, labor unions were growing fast. Back then workers were assumed to be leftist politically.

“Communism, Socialism and Democracy” was dedicated to a discussion of what ideology would rule the world’s future. Like all books by professors, then this one concluded that socialism would take over the world. When socialism took over, “intellectuals” would decide who worked where and who got money. This particular professor said socialism was inevitable because socialism had more thugs.

Naturally, the word “thugs” was not mentioned. What this particular socialist professor said was that, since the fall of fascism, workers were the more physical, threatening group. He said laborers would steadily scare the middle class into accepting socialism.

The only question, said this book, was whether the middle class would wait on labor thugs to impose Communism, or whether it would vote in democratic socialism.

In 1920’s it was the Communists who owned the streets. The middle class did not know how to deal with the impending Workers’ Revolution. They were ecstatic when the SS hit the streets in Germany against the Communists. They were happy when the Fascists took back the streets in Italy.

No, “not everything about the fascists is good.” But for a terrified middle class in the 1920’s they seemed like saviors.

And today, when professors want to encourage left wing extremism and crush right wingers, violent minorities and Marxist “young revolutionaries” are providential, God’s gift to the “intellectuals.”
There is no place in America for racism. But there is plenty of room for Marxism. Racism is Evil. Marxism is Healthy Dissent.

If professors are human, all this is completely predictable.

If professors are human, a campus is naturally a place where “There is no room for racism,” but all the room in the world for Healthy Dissent.

Healthy Dissent means leftism. “Racism” means anything leftists don’t like.

If professors are human, minority thugs are encouraged to cow the political right. Conservatives love to bitch about how white separatism is condemned on campus but black separatism is encouraged.

To a reasonably intelligent person it is obvious that professors will routinely condemn whites and encourage non-white resentment. A person with any moral courage at all would mention this.

The problem is that if you are a reasonably intelligent person with any courage at all you cannot be a respectable conservative.

Leftism depends heavily on white guilt, so if anyone questions white guilt liberal professors call out the thugs.

There is no money in black guilt. There is all the money in the world in white guilt. So if anyone questions white guilt, it is time to call out the Minority thugs to shut them up.

Minority and Marxist thugs are enormously useful for kicking rightist dissenters into line.

Professors encourage leftist thugs because professors are human and black thugs and “young revolutionary” thugs are useful to them.

So naturally all the respectable conservatives will leap up and shout “I’m against ALL thugs!” They make a big thing of condemning both the extreme left and the extreme right. That is the formula for being respectable.
This respectable conservative formula makes it sound like both rightist and leftist thugs are an equal problem on a real world campus. As usual with what respectable conservatives say, this is nonsense.

Meanwhile, back on Planet Earth, things are not that simple.

So let’s take a quick look at the universities that exist down here on Planet Earth:
1)they are publicly supported, either directly by tax money or partially by tax deductions;
2)the institutional bias of all higher education is hard left.

In the real world, anything professors want to consider racist or rightist gets suppressed by them and their thugs as a matter of course.

They don’t think they’re being biased.

So you can’t deal with this institutional bias if you just leave it up to the professors and respectable conservatives.

For ideological diversity on campus, you will need ideological affirmative action on campus.

Professors love to say that professors who get paid to openly demand genocide against whites like Noel Ignatiev represent “ideological diversity” and “intellectual courage.” They say that the screaming thugs who call themselves Young Idealists on campus represent courageous thinking.

Respectable conservatives say that universities just to need to hire some respectable conservatives who are carefully selected by leftist faculties. No way. We need to crack the inbred university system wide open.

What we really must have is professors who are hated and denounced by today’s university establishment. If there is room on campus for professors who call themselves Communists then there is room on campus for those others call racists.

A revolution today’s professors approve of is not a revolution. We need the people professors HATE.
That is what a real revolution is all about.

What we call social science today is a fake. Nothing that is not heresy can be social science.
Period.

United Nations

Written by Bob Whitaker – originally posted May 6th, 2007 – http://www.whitakeronline.org/blog/2007/05/06/united-nations/

We need to do some serious rethinking in the new millennium. We have to dump nineteenth- and twentieth-century thinking.

White STATES have given up their racial identity. Soon there will be no white STATES except possibly in Eastern Europe.

A lot of whites have far too late begun screaming about immigration. Then they talk about white nationalism. The two are not related.

Western society developed into the concept of the nation-state. But that concept died unnoticed. Immigration is burying that outdated concept in the West. But not only in the West. How many “nations” are there in the “United Nations?” The “nation” of Iraq is an absolutely typical example of a non-Western “nation.”

What IS this “nation” called Iraq? How was it founded? Like almost every non-Western country in the “United Nations,” Iraq is the continuation of a set of borders set up as a division of a European Empire. It has a piece of the Kurdish Nation. It has a piece of the Sunnis and a larger piece of the Shiites. 

Jump down to Africa and tell me how many nations there are. Zimbabwe has a piece of the Beles and a larger piece of the Shonas. A Bele from Zimbabwe who goes up into the Beleland part of Zambia finds people who speak his language and share his history. That’s his NATION, not Zimbabwe.

Can you speak of an Angolan NATION or a Mozambique NATION?

The third world is made up either of ridiculously tiny states or of former colonial divisions. Their “nations” were decided in power struggles between European Empires. When a European Empire got its slice, it then divided it up for administrative convenience in Paris and London. The resultant administrative hodgepodge then became, in twentieth-century thinking, a “nation,” a member of the United Nations.

When I was an honored Senior Editor of the Southern Partisan, i.e., when they NEEDED me, I wrote a cover article entitled “Southern Nationalism.” I pointed out that secession would not MAKE the South a nation.

The Irish were an integral part of the British Empire for centuries, but they were ALWAYS a Nation. Germany was politically united in 1871, but it was a nation all the time. Poland has been subdivided repeatedly but it remained a NATION.

A commenter said that whites were becoming One Big White Tribe. Actually, we are beginning to REALIZE our NATIONHOOD. The nation-STATE DIED in the twentieth century. We are Irishmen, Southerners, Boere, Germans. Those histories and roots are a part of our makeup, our identities. No real nation ever gave up its recognition of its subdivisions.

No NATION is the result of political machinations. A NATION is a derivative of the Latin word for “birth.” The white nation will be the results of a birth as painful as all births are. The white nation is a REALIZATION, not a political movement.

White hegemony was destroyed in the twentieth century by civil war. Their kinship was forgotten as they murdered each other in World War I and World War II. They felt no unity.

Please note this: They HAD a unity, but they FORGOT it.

Now the REAL aliens are here. In French prisons filled with Arabs and blacks, the white French prisoner heads straight for the area where the Poles and Germans and other white Frenchmen are.

White nationalism is a REALIZATION, not a political movement. It is happening right now.
