Censorship, American Style

Henry Wolff, American Renaissance, June 28, 2013

If you can get private companies to do it, who needs the government?

For political dissidents, the Internet is a valuable way to spread messages traditional media demonize or ignore. It can also be used for organizing. The “Arab Spring” has even been called the “Twitter revolution.” Unpopular governments understandably want to clamp down on the Internet, but they are not alone.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has long fought what it considers Internet “hate.” As long ago as 1998, ADL Chairman Howard Berkowitz explained, “We are engaged in a full-blown battle against high-tech hate.” That battle continues under the ADL’s current director Abraham Foxman and its Civil Rights Chair Christopher Wolf, who recently co-authored a book, Viral Hate: Containing Its Spread on the Internet.

ViralHate

On Wednesday, in a plush K Street office in Washington, DC, Mr. Wolf said the old adage that “words may never hurt me” is no longer true. He was taking part in a panel discussion— “Containing Viral Hate”—about his book.

Mr. Wolf explained that today, women live in fear of being raped because of “misogynistic online threats,” children stay home from school because of cyberbullying, and Rutgers student Tyler Clementi committed suicide because of a Tweet ridiculing him for being homosexual. Mr. Wolf said that “in the online world, words and pictures and videos and online games are infecting the world with a virus of hate that is a threat to people and to society.” In such an environment, Mr. Wolf believes free expression “doesn’t trump human dignity.”

Mr. Wolf has a personal perspective on hate. He claims that he has suffered from “hate” attacks, both as a homosexual and as a Jew. He believes, with his co-author, Mr. Foxman, that “the Holocaust didn’t begin with the ovens, it began with words.”

Mr. Wolf says that online “hate speech,” particularly in the comments sections of mainstream websites, is a kind of “pollution” that users consider the cost of free speech. The trouble with this attitude, he said, is that the ubiquity of “hate” gives readers—especially young ones—the impression that these ideas are ordinary and acceptable. Such speech must be silenced—but how?

Mr. Wolf rejects legal solutions—not because of the First Amendment or any principled stand for free expression, but because speech laws are “largely ineffective and even counterproductive.” Mr. Wolf pointed out that in much of Western Europe, it is illegal to question certain aspects of the Holocaust. While Mr. Wolf believes this is symbolically valuable, he says that prosecuting someone under these laws turns him into a martyr and his followers then distribute his work even more vigilantly. Furthermore, there’s no way law enforcement could monitor the torrent of information that goes online.

Mr. Wolf proposed three better ways to manage online “hate.” The first is community involvement and counter-speech. Mr. Wolf cited a Facebook event called “Kill a Jew Day.” In response, opponents formed a group called “One Million Strong Against Kill a Jew Day.”

Mr. Wolf praised another practice that is common on Twitter: Users retweet “offensive” posts, express their disgust, and draw negative attention to the offender. This is especially common when a celebrity or politician tweets something politically incorrect.

Many popular websites have “flagging” functions that let users alert moderators to offensive content. Mr. Wolf endorses this in principle, but noted that users often flag something just because they disagree with it.

The second strategy Mr. Wolf offered is intervention by what he calls “intermediaries”—Internet companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, or even Internet Service Providers that may host material some consider hateful. Mr. Wolf believes that “at minimum, the hosts of online content . . . should have clear terms of service prohibiting hate speech that they should have the staff and procedures in place to enforce.” Mr. Wolf says he respects “free expression,” but there is content “everyone can agree” crosses a line and should be removed.

Mr. Wolf explained that several state attorney generals have called for amending Section 230 of the Community Decency Act, which says Internet companies aren’t liable for offensive, user-generated content, and have no obligation to moderate it. Mr. Wolf would leave Section 230 alone, but says groups such as the ADL are already working with Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, and others to get them to police the Internet voluntarily.

As an example, Mr. Wolf mentioned that one of the top Google search results for “Jew” is the website Jew Watch which Mr. Wolf called “virulently anti-Semitic.” The ADL approached Google about this and Google said it would not alter its search results. However, it promotes a free, sponsored link alongside the Jew Watch listing that leads to Google’s explanation of how it displays search results and also points to the ADL website.

Mr. Wolf cited another recent campaign in which women’s groups pressured Facebook to remove content they thought encouraged violence against women. One such posting was a photo of a battered woman with the caption “She broke my heart so I broke her nose.” The women’s groups browbeat Nissan, Dove, and other companies into pulling their advertising until Facebook removed the content. Facebook emphasized that it does not allow hate speech, which it defines as a “direct and serious” attacks against a “protected category of people,” but admitted its censorship was inadequate and promised to beef it up.

The third strategy Mr. Wolf promotes is education: “More needs to be done to teach kids about hate online, and frankly more needs to be done in the world of cyber literacy, period.” Mr. Wolf said he believes the Department of Education should help teach children what to do when they find “hate speech,” but did not add details.

There’s another strategy for combating “hate” that Mr. Wolf promotes, but did not mention in his presentation. He wants websites to voluntarily stop letting people be anonymous. Mr. Wolf wrote in the New York Times that he would like to see real names policies be the “Internet norm.” He says this is particularly important for news-company comments sections where “the benefits of anonymous posting are outweighed by the need for greater online civility.” Facebook already has such a policy, though enforcement is lax. The New York Times website gives priority to comments by registered users, a policy Mr. Wolf likes.

Although Mr. Wolf’s recommendations stop short of a legal ban on “hate speech,” they still border on tyrannical. Companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have near monopolies in their corners of the Internet, and can have real influence over political events such as the Arab Spring. It’s hard to see how censorship from them is much different from government censorship.

Facebook

Dissidents would not go to jail but would be silenced, and that is exactly what Mr. Wolf and the ADL want. They want to sit down with Internet bigwigs, throw around phrases like “human dignity,” and get companies to ban anyone who violates egalitarian orthodoxy. And if a company won’t knuckle under, they’ll go after its advertisers.

The prospect of schooling children in “proper ways” to respond to “hate” is just as disturbing. Presumably this would be like the ADL’s “A World of Difference” program or the SPLC’s “Teaching Tolerance” campaign, which bounce around words like “diversity,” “anti-bias,” “equality,” and “inclusivity,” until children’s brains goes numb. Such overt politicization doesn’t belong in classrooms, and shouldn’t be a part of an Internet megasite’s terms of service. But if Chris Wolf and his friends have their way, it will be.

    Look how he admits—he’s probably too pretentious and smug to even realize it—that comment sections on “mainstream” sites now tend to run contrary to the politically correct sickness that is forced on us in “controlled” environments. It’s amazing how people truly feel and what they will say when they are no longer bound by an overbearing zealot who tries to dictate their every move and thought.

    He wants all of those opinions, views and expressions of thought(ughh, I mean hate) to all just disappear. Like magic, right? Weird, I thought that it was supposed to be the hate mongers and “racists” who had cornered the market on silencing those with dissenting opinions. Is Mr. Wolf admitting to having racist and hateful views? Good for you, buddy!

      Same thing happened in the Soviet Union as the lies get more extreme, if not silly, by definition, you need to clamp down harder and harder and the lies get more and more ridiculous and they need to clamp down harder and the cycle goes round and round until a good percentage of the population is dead or imprisoned for merely thinking the truth or being deemed an undesirable (e.g., Eastern Orthodox, Mormon, or some other Christian conservative YT group). Does this sound familiar? Eventually it collapses on itself, but not until things are so messed up that the likes of Foxman and company scamper away or merely wall themselves off and declare that the natives had it coming.
      It is important to note that these people spend a good deal of their existence projecting their own hate upon their victims. For example, in short, they are sick people with wicked agendas.

        Mormons are fiscal conservatives, but social liberals. Trust me, I have some experience with them. Mitt Romney wasn’t a stretch for cult members these days (maybe in past generations but not today).

    • The__Bobster

      Hell, he and his kind are the ones who forced Political Correctness on us. Now they feel that they are losing their grip. Therefore, they want total control of everything that is posted on the internet.

      • http://www.amren.com/ Michael Christopher Scott

        If people like you and I were merely wrong, the push for internet censorship would not be nearly so ardent as the world’s Christopher Wolfs have made it. It’s inconvenient truths that so completely infuriate them.

    • Erasmus

      At other times and in other places Mr. Wolf would have made a fine gauleiter or kommissar.

    Let me summarize: “Blah, blah, blah, … you’re a ‘racist Nazi’ if you don’t do as I say … blah, blah, blah, … ‘it’s for the children’ … just go ahead and die you Christian Europeans, blah, blah, blah … no more 1st Amendment for YT, blah, blah, blah, …” The various ‘hate crimes’ (e.g., ‘hate speech’) always end up being anti-Christian anti-white. It always is presented as something polite and useful but always (and did I say always?) ends up being asymmetrically used against YT’s interests. These same people also, BTW, want your guns and love amnesty. Also, they absolutely hate the 1st and 2nd Amendments and wish them stamped out so we can progress in YT’s richly deserved genocide (i.e., richly deserved according to people like Abe Foxman, George Soros, etc.). Yes, we absolutely must stamp out the likes of AmRen, then all will be well in the world (or at least get the moderator to stamp out any reference to the tribe).

      Jews Unite Behind Push for Immigration Reform;
      Ethics and Self-Interest Drive Unusual Nationwide Effort
      By Rex Weiner
      Published June 26, 2013.

      … “It’s about the right thing to do,” said Robert Gittelson, co-founder of Conservatives for Comprehensive Immigration Reform, and a Republican. In op-ed pieces and interviews, Gittelson, a retired Jewish businessman from California’s San Fernando Valley, has called certain GOP strategies on immigration reform “un-biblical” and “cruel.”

      … After months of delay, the U.S. Senate is set to vote on the most comprehensive immigration reform legislation in 27 years. And Jewish groups across the country are acting together in a way characteristic of the community on few issues besides Israel.

      … Those leading an active push for the bill, which will offer a path to citizenship for some of the nation’s 11 million undocumented aliens, include the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, Bend the Arc and the National Council of Jewish Women.

      The Senate vote — and the even harder struggle that will follow in the Republican-controlled House — represents the fulfillment of a sustained campaign by the Jewish community for immigration reform, which has built momentum over the past decade.

      • Romulus

        I’ve read on another site once, that after the tribe utterly destroys America and Europe, the “fatherland ” would be vindicated by the history books. Yet , after reading this article and knowing how much control “they” have,especially of media, I don’t think that kind of truth will see the light of day. Unless there is massive upheaval. Which always brings me back to amendment number 2. We simply cannot let them take it away. Just for basic self preservation at the least.

      • Erasmus

        The US is to be multi-cultural, cannot expel its illegals and must never build a border fence. Yet Israel must be culturally pure, can forcibly expel its illegals and fences to keep out the undesirables is a good thing.

        One standard for thee but another for me. How very, very typical.

          And they get to have dual citizenship so that they can push causes like these in America, Canada, the EU, etc.

      • QuinnTheEskimo9

        Just like they rammed through the most damaging legislation ever, the 1965 Immigration act. They demand whites countries like the USA and Europe become bankrupt, multicultural, third world holes but insist on a racially pure state for themselves. Try calling out their utter hypocrisy and see how fast you’re call an anti-semite.

      • David Ashton

        The Biblical reference here is dubious. Hospitality to a small number of strangers is quite different from admission of innumerable aliens to the national congregation. What was prescribed for ancient Israel is quite different from what people of immigrant heritage seek to prescribe for modern America. These Jews must be pressed to clarify publicly their motives for a policy which other Jews have stated would change the face of the US. They should also be asked about the mass immigration not only of Muslims but of other third-world communities who dislike Israel.

      You are truly a “gift” for this site, my friend. I never cease to laugh out loud from your astute and pithy observations.

        Bingo. When fair minded people, who have been indoctrinated by the left, read those “hateful”comments online that challenge their world view, they get angry. They wonder how someone could believe these hateful obviously wrong things, and that in turn intrigues them. Then, the more they read those dissident viewpoints, the more they start to agree with them, and question their old beliefs. At least that was my experience when I was naive.

        I know exactly who you’re referring to. That guy really was a piece of work. I’ve since seen two-face post on other articles, so I know he reads that site often, and they post stories about black mob violence frequently. So, no doubt he is VERY aware of it, but in his hypocrisy and hatred claimed that was no defense for SA to try and protect themselves, despite the 70,000 murders of Whites, and flat out stated they deserved it. That is the epitome of hatred and evil.

    Which ones? These attorneys general need to be outted immediately as the soviet-style bosses they are.

    This is not about any kind of hate speech; it is about complete control over the population
    with Wolf and Foxman as the final arbiters of what constitutes hate speech and judge, jury and executioner as to the punishment. You can bet punishment, as in job loss, heavy monetary fines, jail time and branding as “hater” and “racist” will be meted out to whites while blacks, Jews, Asians and Latinos allowed — and even encouraged — to spew venous hatred at whites. The old soviet bosses would be proud.

    Wanna talk about hate speech, Mr. Wolf? This diatribe of yours, setting yourself and God knows who else as the arbiters of what is considered to be “hate” speech, is hate speech of the highest order. Nobody has the right to dictate to ANYONE ELSE what constitutes hate speech. There are already enough laws in place. Come on! You know the old saying: “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter” . Well, you libs are all about cultural relativism, so, one man’s “hate” speech is another man’s TRUTH. But, actually, all that relativism is just smoke and mirrors, isn’t it? Rules are negotiable, morals are slavery, who are we to judge? Isn’t that what you libs are constantly preaching? Gay sex is fine, don’t stigmatize them because they have sex with thousands of partners and end up with AIDS, no, wouldn’t want to do that! Legalize illegals! But don’t pay any attention to what Israel does to immigrants. But, you see, it is always YOUR rules, no matter what. You libs don’t want to ban “hate” speech, you want to ban the Truth.

    In a free market place for facts and ideas Jews have little to fear. There are only three areas where they obviously differ from Gentiles: they have their religion; they have higher average IQs; they have greater average prosperity because of that higher average intelligence.

    I am unaware of any evidence that Jewish businessmen tend to be less scrupulous than Gentile businessmen, that Jewish money lenders charge higher interest rates, and so on.

    Hostility toward Jews infuriates me and almost gives me a metallic taste in my mouth. Nevertheless, I would rather that hostility be freely expressed, and ask only for the opportunity to counter it calmly with facts and logical reasoning.

    • sbuffalonative

      The average IQ of Israelis is in the upper 90s I believe. If some Jewish people who lived in European nations have higher IQs it’s only because they selective bred with the higher IQ native population.

        Bingo. Also, since they currently dominate finance in the U.S. and the U.K. they are disproportionately responsible for some of the greatest (if not the greatest) white collar crime in the history of the planet, yet have not been jailed for it (except for a few possible anomalies like Bernie Madoff turning himself in). In short, they are currently about 2.5% of the U.S. population but cause the clear bulk of the financial crime; and in addition they want us literally to die. Hey, heck of thing to steal from your hosts and then wish them dead; yet they lack the introspection and basic self analysis to consider why they have been kicked out of dozens (if not hundreds) of European countries through history (and some more than once). The victim card is the natural fall back position; even after over 100 million people (almost all non-Jews) were murdered based on Marxism of one form or another. I believe even the term “racist” was developed by Trotsky/Bronstein to use against Orthodox Russians to brow beat them into submission, and to this day it is a favorite of the tribe and their useful idiots. I could go on, but suffice it to say that the degree to which their leaders have proven hate for white Christians is pathological. I suggest they just move to black and/or Asian run countries and leave us backward Christian hicks alone; but I won’t be holding my breath.

    • David Ashton

      I was an acquitence for a small time with someone who worked for a Jewish bakery in Ohio (it’s the one with the conspicuously Jewish name) and they worked their employees on Sunday because their sabath is on Saturday. I got the impression that they did this less because of any strong moral conviction than because they could. Of course, maybe I got the wrong impression.

  • http://www.amren.com/ Michael Christopher Scott

    The point that needs to be made is that ANY politically non-mainstream online discussion is always going to produce material some people find objectionable: i.e. “hate”. What Christopher Wolf is saying is that nobody should be allowed to write anything online that he personally dislikes, because as a Jew and a sodomite he is special

    It’s too bad he isn’t also black, left-handed and handicapped. Then he’d be really, really special. It still doesn’t give the would-be Hitler the right to prohibit political discussions by people who’s opinions he may dislike; nobody’s that special.

  • AllSeeingEyeSpy

    “the Holocaust didn’t begin with the ovens, it began with words.”

    He could be right. And the only ones speaking now are leftists and their friends. And now hate is seen as white activism and arguably as whites. At least something whites and only whites must distance themselves from. In other words, if a white acts and behaves perfectly, and yes thinks in all ways in a correct manner, a white man May be able to reduce the negative stigmatism and raise himself up to an even zero. Now that hate is seen as whites, hate is the number one problem that needs eradicated, according to them anyway.

    • http://www.amren.com/ Michael Christopher Scott

      It likely did begin with words. That said, a certain King Samir Shabazz has publicly called for the murder of young white children. The proper response to the rants of someone like Shabazz is public ridicule rather than censorship. Ridicule wouldn’t be so hard; I’d try something like this:

      “The mass-killings of white children was once accomplished, in a place not very far away. We call it Haiti. Prior to the massacre of whites, Haiti was wealthy, producing most of the tobacco and sugar consumed in France, then the governing colonial power. After independence and the ethnic cleansing of whites, Haiti began a death spiral to become the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. What you are calling for, Mr. Shabazz, is the conversion of the United States into a larger version of Haiti, with snow, but without a wealthy neighbor that is able to send food, medical and financial aid.”

      Why is it not possible to crack down very heavily and impartially on violence and on incitement to violence (e.g. Kill a Jew) and to permit impartially non-violent discussion (e.g. fewer than X million Jews were killed)?

      There are, of course, political investments in certain statements of (alleged) fact; e.g. Zionist maximum affirmation of the Nazi “holocaust” and Turkish maximum denial of the Armenian “holocaust”, but these considerations should not be used to suppress rational debate.

  • AllSeeingEyeSpy

    “The prospect of schooling children in “proper ways” to respond to “hate” is just as disturbing. Presumably this would be like the ADL’s “A World of Difference” program or the SPLC’s “Teaching Tolerance” campaign”

    The obviously solution to the Mr. Wolf’s (in sheep’s clothing) of the world is simply to make it a crime to try and rob someone of their 1st amendment rights.

  • anarchyst

    A good example of present-day censorship is the fate that awaits those that dare question “official” jewish “holocaust” orthodoxy. Most European countries have criminalized ANY line of thought that deviates from the “official” jewish “holocaust” story. WHY?? In fact, TRUTH is no defense when it comes to “all things holocaust”. Ask noted WW2 researcher David Irving, who was forced to recant TRUTH in order to avoid punishment. . .
    If people only knew of the planning that took place (among those of the “chosen”) to engineer the jewish “holocaust”, there would be a pogrom of massive size. You see, the jewish “holocaust” was necessary in order to force the establishment of a jewish state. In this case, the ENDS justified the MEANS. There have been many “holocausts” of much greater misery throughout human history, yet the jewish “holocaust” is the only one that counts . . .

      Thank you for the truth. The point of the narrative is not to tell the truth but as means to an end. You are right that one end was the creation of a Jewish state called Israel, the other seems to be to genocide YT. One down, one to go.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    If I was a left wing dictator I would WANT to know what is trending on the cultural landscape. People will rarely tell you what they really think or feel if they believe they may be made to suffer for it. Anonymity guarantees honesty. There is no better way to gauge the temperature. Whether the leftist powers like or dislike the information they should be glad they have access to it.

    • BonusGift

      You are correct, yet I think you miss their motivation. These people are not merely tweaking here and there to enhance their rule, they wish to crush dissent, in fact they desire to have no debate whatsoever (let alone allow people access to real information or real news). Many assume we are dealing with people we can educate or argue with, we generally are not. It is the difference between an evil person and one who merely, misunderstands. For example, if a normal person steps on your foot and you inform them of it they will typically at least get off your foot, and possibly apologize. In contrast an evil person upon being informed that he is stepping on your foot will likely put all their remaining weight on your foot in a renewed attempt to break one or more bones in it, and, if possible, pull out a knife to cut it off your person, etc.. Escalation is the point not a mistake for an evil person. An evil person is encouraged by your screams of pain; therefore, the assumption of logic and rationality (let alone empathy) is not really a good idea with respect to people who are inherently evil and wish you and your children dead. I am reminded of Orwell and a 1984 quote where I would just say that these people see the Internet not as a method of control per say, but ideally as a device through which they can torture those that they wish to genocide (i.e., as they see the law, politics, academia, the media, etcetera):
      “We are not content with negative obedience, nor even with the most abject submission. When finally you surrender to us, it must be of your own free will. We do not destroy the heretic because he resists us; so long as he resists us we never destroy him. We convert him, we capture his inner mind, we reshape him. We burn all evil and all illusion out of him; we bring him over to our side, not in appearance, but genuinely, heart and soul. We make him one of ourselves before we kill him. It is intolerable to us that an erroneous thought should exist anywhere in the world, however secret and powerless it may be. Even in the instance of death we cannot permit any deviation . . . we make the brain perfect before we blow it out.”

    The only remedy to “If I attend or show support, I’ll be fired” is to have a safety net in place. If you get fired for having standards, values, and enough integrity to do what you feel is right, even in the face of such oppression and ridicule you know you will receive, then you should most certainly be hired for the same standards, values and integrity. This isn’t an easy process, but it can be done.

        Paula Deen got caught in the vicious anti-White machine she helped put into place and unleash on the rest of us. She was an Obama campaigner and active anti-White leftist. The only lesson anyone should take from Paula Deen’s situation is the oppressive mechanisms you help put into place to use against your ideological enemies will inevitably one day be used against you, always, without exception.

        Deen’s case is instructive to those who think that their golem will never rip his collar off and turn on them.

          Marxists do not want allies who can think for themselves, and they never have. They call these people “useful idiots”. The problem with being a useful idiot is that one’s usefulness will eventually expire, the way Paula Deen’s recently did. The formerly-useful idiot is then used as a prop in a staged, public morality drama like the one we are currently witnessing.

    Not sure about that. I read news stories from Jewish newspapers years ago talking about how the Sephardic Jews are often oppressed and looked down upon by the Ashkenazi Jews in Israel. Pretty weird thing to occur if the Ashkenazi Jews are the minority over there.

  • PouponMarks

    It really comes down to the inevitable: the cure-Mr. Wolfrat’s prescription-is far worse than the disease. Remove one tyrant and he gets replaced by an uncontrollable monster many times worse. Flash!!: that’s what Progressive/Socialist/Marxist/Liberal/Democrats do. Take a working, best in class system, free enterprise/capitalism, and replace it with the above toxic and death inducing collectivism and elitism. Nothing is perfect, but the best and the rest need to be differentiated.

    The Department of Education isn’t able to educate children, and Wolf wants their mission farther diluted with political indoctrination! Really?

    What ever happened to the notion that parents are supposed to provide their minor children with an appropriate moral foundation? I forget; not all parents exist in a state of ideological lockstep with Christopher Wolf. For instance, I am a racist, and my wife and I could be teaching our daughter things of which Mr. Wolf – who as a Jew and sodomite exists in a state of (self-acclaimed) moral superiority – might not approve. My bad; never mind.

        It’s not really the holoco$t that they are concerned about, it’s that any race realist forum that allows talk about the Jews in general always degrades into that.

        For me personally that gets really boring. It’s not that I don’t think there are any prominent Jews involved in pushing egalitarianism, it just gets really old talking about it. Especially when every. single. post. degrades into “It’s the Jews!”.

        • anarchyst

          I was merely pointing out the double standard that exists . . .and the fact that the jewish “holocaust” is pretty much “off-limits” to scholarly discussion . . . If this brings the jewish “holocaust” into the conversation, so be it.

    John Engelman do you have any statistics on what percentage of Jews do not maintain a Kosher diet and what percentage do maintain it ?

    I have a Jewish friend who eats like a Gentile. Meaning he eats bacon cheese burgers, peperoni pizza, ham and cheese sandwiches, chicken parmesan, etc.

    Obviously among Orthodox Jews, 100 percent of them are Kosher. But it is obviously not 100 percent among less religious and more secular Jews like my friend.

    The different races, and sub races within the major racial divisions differ significantly in average ability levels and behavior. These differences have legitimate policy implications. Unfortunately, there are many taboos and sanctions against discussing them.

    Social policies that are based on assumptions about human nature and potential that are not true nearly always have bad results.

      Bad results, especially when the people responsible for implementing those policies have to concoct increasingly elaborate excuses in order to explain why their flawed policies – based as they are on erroneous assumptions – do not work.

    Second, it seems to me that both government and the corporate state are consciously trying to strip everyone of their race, history, and culture to make them into more docile slaves.

    It is Whites and only Whites that are constantly being stripped of their race, history and culture. Blacks, Latinos, Jews and Asians are encouraged to promote, advocate and advance the culture, language and history of their own people. We Whites are forced to accept this and the lie that our race is responsible for all human misery past, present and future.

    Blacks and Latinos, because of their low IQs, are already slaves of the state.

      It is critical to get out the message of the genocide that is being waged against us.
      The Talmud explains the genocide being waged against the white race. Don’t let anyone tell you this has been misinterpreted or mis translated, it hasn’t and it isn’t:

      Only Jews are human. [Gentiles] are animals. (Baba Mezia 114a-114b)

      For murder, whether of a Cuthean [Gentile] by a Cuthean, or of an Israelite by a Cuthean, punishment is incurred; but of a Cuthean by an Israelite, there is no death penalty. (sanhedrin 57a.)

      Even the best of the [Gentiles] should be killed. (Babylonian Talmud Abodah Zara 26b).

      Gentile flesh is as the flesh of asses and whose issue is like the issue of horses.

      All Gentile children are animals (Yebamoth 98a)

      Gentiles prefer sex with cows.) Abodah Zarah 22a-22b)

      “Israeli civil law does not permit marriages between Jews and non-Jews within the state of Israel.” (Embassy of the US Tel Aviv, Israel).

    So, I left a comment:
    NoBama is a (white-hating) black, (non-muslim hating) muslim, (America-hating) marxist dictator.
    Mandela was a white-hating (and killing) communist ANC dictator.

    The correct comparison is Mandela to NoBama.

Ever tried challenging the Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated? Or differences between men and women? Or racial differences? The goyim are far more likely to be intolerant than the MoT (or just about the same.). Even if every MoT was shipped off to EY, there’d be no rolling-back PC/Multi-Culti conformism.

          I suspect the nation has always had a bit of a puritanical streak that made it a virtue to mind other people’s business, but not to the current degree. Part of the problem is the assembly of the mainstream media into monopolistic entities. For instance, every major newspaper here in Colorado is owned by the same company, MediaNews (one word) Group, which owns 56 newspapers in 12 states, along with a CBS affiliate TV station in Alaska and radio stations in Texas.

          You can imagine what this does to the notion of the “independent press” lauded by the US founding fathers. A nation of educated voters and responsible citizens is not well served if a handful of major corporations control all major news outlets – and their editorial policies – while the opposition is limited to a proverbial soap-box in the park.

          • Aditya Vivek Barot

            Perhaps this is the reductio ad absurdum of the de-racinated and de-Christianized Constitution. If our “values” are the only glue keeping us together, then we have to do everything to defend those “values.” So, it’s “values” that we live and die for, not people, land, religion. This is not a nation. It’s barely a hotel.

            I’m not a Christian, and while I’ve been accused of being Jewish, I’m not that, either. The values you just derided are the only things I possess that nobody can take from me.

          • Aditya Vivek Barot

            A far more serious thinker than I said that all political ideologies are a secular substitute for a theological ideology (Carl Schmidt, Concept of the Political). I’m neither white nor Christian, but I contend that the Constitution, as it was, is the culmination of the English Tradition and Western Christian Protestantism although it doesn’t make that explicit claim. Therein lies the problem: since there is no racial and/or religious bases for justifying ethnic homogeneity and preserving a vibrant English Tradition, the poor old Constitution can be mutilated to serve the ends of any group/interest that is sufficiently motivated and organized.

            Everything is malleable to some extent.

            I received a leftover curved piece of 3/16″ machined armor plate. When held on the end of a string and rapped with a small hammer, it rang like a bell, so I did nothing with the temper of the steel. I have cut the tang out of the billet and machined the edge. I am now working on the hilt: brass with copper wire wrapped over black leather. These compliment the ugly dark color I couldn’t polish out of the blade.

            It was just a piece of steel with a certain admixture of nickel and chromium. It could have ended up as almost anything, but it’s a 26-inch kashka because I made it so.

      Of course; this is what Marxists do.

Maverick kills cats and rabbits; he can’t help it because he’s a fox. He thinks he’s a dog, but he isn’t quite that, and it shows. Most dogs want to play with cats and perhaps sniff their butts (cats hate that), but Maverick isn’t playing.

      So long as there is one happy, well-adjusted family left in the world that neither needs nor wants “services” from big government, every last Marxist will be miserable.

    I agree entirely, and it is not just America.

    Much genuine (and sometimes robust) speech that counters the ‘current thinking’ of the controlled mainstream has been gradually stubbed out of existence.

    Politicians in opposition, in the workplace, in the broadcast media – and in recent years, even on social media sites (where here in England, people have been tracked down and arrested for non-pc commentary deemed ‘hate’)…… the list goes on

    …….and it has gradually become a situation close to where the only place and time you can speak your mind is when you are amongst close friends and family and therefore in no real position to change anything or get yourself heard.

    When a counter culture is prevented from using language to convey a message, it is hardly surprising when our message gets misunderstood and misheard on those rare occasions when we do speak our minds. People are not using to hearing it and therefore not used to comprehending it.
