    A good day to reflect on endeavour, courage, imagination and sheer stubbornness.

    • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

      Not just the endevour, courage, imagination and sheer stubbornness of not just ocean-going explorers, but of the equally courageous fur-traders and trappers who opened up the interior of North America. Here’s a snippet about one of thousands of incredible men:

      “In the autumn of 1808 [John] Colter was sent again by [trader Manuel Lisa] to trap near the Three Forks [of the Missouri in what is now Montana] . . . he was accompanied by John Potts, who killed a Blackfoot brave when a howling war party encircled them. In almost no time Potts’ body was riddled with arrows. Colter was stripped of his clothes by his Indian captors and told to start running for his life. After him the Blackfoot sen their fleetest braves. Barefooted, Colter pounded across the cactus-covered lands, heading for the Madison River five miles away. He ran with bleeding feet, his lungs about to explode. On and on he ran until he outdistanced all but one of his pursuers. In desperation, Colter whirled, wrenched a spear from the Indian’s hands, and cut the man down with his own weapon. Finally he reached the Madison and dived in, coming up for air under the refuse of a beaver dam.”

      “For the rest of the day Colter stayed in the water, hearing the howling frenzy of a searching party of Blackfoot who jumped about on the very logs that sheltered him. When darkness came he swam down the river, then set out, still naked, to hike the three hundred miles that lay between him and Fort Raymond at the mouth of the Bighorn River.” (Trappers and Mountain Men by Evan Jones, American Heritage Publishing Company, 1961, p. 81)

      Trappers and Mountain Men was part of a lavishly-illustrated, superbly-written history series for young people. Unfortunately, it was published just as modern PC-multicultural/white guilt era was about to dawn. It — the entire series — became irrelevant to the new purpose of American public education.

      • Rhialto

        They were brave and dauntless men. On the other hand, I also respect the courage and determination of the indigenous population in repelling the invaders who were trying to conquer their territory. Contrast these normal men with todays White men who are willing and even anxious to abandon their land to invaders.

        • Sue

          The indigenous people were savages. The plainsmen put their lives on the line every day. They didn’t just kill, they tortured for hours. All the while the bleeding hearts on the east coast cried for the “indigenous people” all safe and snug in their beds hundreds of miles away. Try Scalp Dance for a read.

          • Defoe

            Or try BLACK ROBE by Brian Moore. This book is not pc, is historically accurate, and a great read!

          • Sue

            Thank you DeFoe. I will look into it now.

          • Brian

            Savages or not, they had more awareness and self-interest than our SWPLs today.

          • Sue

            We did too then. Think about it. In Europe the vanquished were “reeducated” to consider aliens better then them. In the US we got the same “reeducation” only minorities are better here.

          • Brian

            Fortunately I’m dumb about certain things and the re-education didn’t take.

          • Sue

            Nicely done Brian

          • stewball

            How you all like to twist history to make yourselves feel better. If you were ‘indigenous’you wwould also fight for your survival.

          • Sick of it

            We are indigenous and we are not fighting for our survival.

          • Sue

            I’m hoping that was sarcasm but I doubt it. Fighting for survival is one thing, what they did was something else entirely.

          • stewball

            Who are you talking about? The ‘white’ man killing for somebody elses land or fighting for survival and who can blame them. The Indians settled the land. Everybody here is saying colombo didn’t discover America. Thr Indians were there already. When you celebrate thanksgiving are the Indian people not included in the celebration?ThThey helped the pilgrims when they arrived front Britain right? They were already there right? That’s the way I think. Please don’t compare it to Israel. There is no comparison.

          • Sue

            Wow, you’re all over the place. If you believe the Indians settled the land then why not compare it to Israel?

          • stewball

            Read the old testament.

          • Sue

            That’s an excuse to steal land.

          • stewball

            Was that a question?
            Land was not stolen. It was won fair and square in a war not if our choosing like you won lands of the Mexicans.

          • Sue

            What war war would that be? The land was given to them by the victors of WWII.

  • Spartacus

    Hail Columbus !

    • David Ashton

      Hello again – Google “Was Columbus Jewish?” (Spoilspart).

      • IstvanIN

        If Columbus was a Jew he would be revered by our masters, not denigrated.

        • sbuffalonative

          If Columbus was Jewish, we could blame them for the genocide of the Native Americans.

          • David Ashton

            We “could”. But not logical in either case.

          • sbuffalonative

            I agree. It’s lose lose and I don’t seriously propose we do so.

            I believe the rumor that Columbus may have been Jewish started long ago (like the rumors that Shakespeare and Mozart were Jewish) when Columbus was seen as an heroic historical figure. Now that he has been ‘deconstructed’, I don’t hear that rumor much anymore.

          • David Ashton

            I must admit I have never heard the – very unlikely – suggestion that Shakespeare was a Jew, and I am not convinced by arguments that the author of the plays was a practising Catholic (though he may have come from a recusant background). Mozart was familiar with freemasonry. An internet search on Columbus will reveal a significant number of clues, more persuasive than those advanced to show that “Don Quixote” was written not by Cervantes but “Cid Hamet Benengli”, i.e. Sir Francis Bacon. I suppose that the very notion that someone of at least partly Sephardic extraction could be a “master mariner” or an “adventurer” is unacceptable to the “antisemitic” psyche.

          • Sick of it

            The most honest retort would be – It depends on who you consider to be a Semite. Ancient Israelites did settle in new places all over. Some may have been explorers on Phoenician ships (per the old alliance with Hiram of Tyre). I don’t know of too many Khazars (Ashkenazim) who have done the things they did.

          • David Ashton

            Yes indeed. Columbus would not have been one of the Ostjuden but of Marrano ancestry or familiarity with them. However, the landlubber Khazars probably contributed their genes only to a percentage of Ashkenazim to judge by DNA, phenotype and migration evidence. I have no idea of the composition of the Israeli naval leadership today.

          • Sick of it

            For phenotypical evidence of their contribution, compare Ashkenazi Jews (by the thousands) with mixed race persons of Caucasoid/Mongoloid origin. The traits are obvious in many. They were more obvious a few centuries ago among their entire group, but the obvious modern examples are likely from Poland, where they were living in ghettos for so long (and I think the Poles were pretty standoffish afterward as well).

            Old American Ashkenazi families were marrying WASP women in the 19th century, as I’ve found in genealogical research. Find A Grave shows such marriages in abundance. This was an offhanded discovery by the way, it’s not like I’d waste my time looking into that alone.

          • David Ashton

            Forgive me for not wishing to go deeply into the Khazar/
            Ashkenazim dispute, which has simmered especially since Koestler got into it, but I am interested in your actual observation of Mongolid-Caucasid traits, which are obvious today only among relatively few eastern Jews or the dominant people of Israel. If as supposed the Khazars were a Turkic people, we should indeed expect to see such features and one does indeed notice them occasionally among the “rougher” sort of Jews in Britain. Predominant Ashkenazic features remain Armenid, as reported by Deniker, Guenther, Baker and others, and can be traced back to portraiture of biblical times.

          • Sick of it

            I’ve noticed “Armenid” features from time to time which obviously do not fit with pure Caucasoids, but that’s a whole other discussion. This particular example isn’t even strongly Mongoloid, but the blood always tells – Julia Stiles:

          • sbuffalonative

            I heard the speculation that Shakespeare was Jewish 30 years ago. Mozart within the last five or so. It seems that anyone of any renowned is given this treatment. I don’t know how much real research (if any) goes into these claims. I think they’re just made to get people to repeat them. ‘I once heard that Shakespeare was Jewish’. So the rumor is spread.

          • David Ashton

            Some first-class scientists, financiers and historians have been Jewish, but not that many philosophers, pictorial artists, composers or even poets of the very first rank. Their intellectual gifts tend towards the mathematical, analytical and critical.

          • stewball

            There have been some poets and artists in my religion. One in the 1st world war whose name I can see in my mind. At the same time as Owen. I’m sure there were plenty before. Of course there was fool that I am. Some of the French painters were Jewish.

          • stewball

            I roll with laughter. Shakespeare Jewish. Well really. I laugh and the world laughs with me. Of course he wasn’t Jewish. He was a normal unpleasant brit who was as antisemitic as they come. Re-read the merchant of venice and there’s another one of his but I can’t remember which. Most certainly motzart was not Jewish. It’s enough that Daniel Barenboim is!

          • MikeofAges

            All along many Jewish families and individuals converted to Catholicism, and then were accepted wholly into Christian society. Just about anybody in Europe could have some degree of Jewish ancestry.

          • stewball

            Let us not forget why they converted to Catholicismtorture being burnt alive etc. And by the way Columbus was a marrano whose family had been forced to convert. Do you know how many families have found their way back to Judaism.

          • MikeofAges

            Not known to me. I can only say, some did and some didn’t. Others know more about that than I do. I can only speak for myself.

            I am partially of Jewish descent myself. My Jewish forebearers became atheist in my grandfather’s generation (b. ~1885). In my 50s, I joined a traditional European Christian denomination. If I had children at this late age,they would be raised as Christian in my denomination. Two of my three brothers are Christians. The other one identifies himself as a Buddhist but does not belong to any congregation, assembly or whatever term they use. My youngest brother has a different, but nevertheless Jewish, father. He has two adult daughters and at least one teenage granddaughter. His daughters and granddaughter live on the edge of the mid-South. They do not identify as Jewish and have little cognizance of being so as far as I know. I assume whomever they have hooked up with are young men of Anglo-Celtic or Northern European Protestant backgrounds.

          • Andy

            It’s not accurate to call it genocide. Genocide is the planned, intentional mass murder of a racial group. 90% of Amerind population loss following colonization was due to disease. Whites were animal-farmers, meaning that they had spent millenia being exposed to tons of diseases and only those with the strongest immune systems had survived. Amerinds had not, so they were very susceptible to the sudden influx of germs.

            The rest of the population loss was due to intermarriage (5%) and wars + massacres + displacement (5%).

          • sbuffalonative

            You and I might not call it genocide but just google ‘Columbus genocide’ and you’ll see others do. It’s tough to debate illogical people.

        • David Ashton

          Now this raises two questions (1) was he IN FACT a crypto-Jew (as also claimed by the Holocaust-racketeer Wiesenthal) as various items of evidence indicate, and (2) are “our masters” ALL Jewish chauvinists or a mix of internationalists of diverse ethnic heritage?
          In these matters we must start with objective data, not with a subjective conclusion, wherever it leads.

          • Sick of it

            #1 Anyone who believes Wiesenthal on virtually anything has a screw loose.

            #2 Originally, the manipulators behind the New World Order were mostly white. Since the beginning of their multi-generational operations, they have continually intermarried with Jewish families (possibly due to the financial success of the Rothschilds?). But don’t believe me, look into your own Royal Family’s background. If you want objective data, read. There’s plenty of information out there on these families, including mainstream publications. I point out names with almost every article. The names are obvious.

          • David Ashton

            1. The evidence is quite separate from the “Zion in America” use that SW made of it.

            2. You are quite right about the intermarriage and/or social association between former ruling dynasties and the “Jewish aristocracy”, though Prof. Jonathan Petropoulos’ 530-page “Royals and the Reich” (Oxford UP 2006) puts a different spin on the modern evidence than (say) David Icke.

            You would need to make a stronger case that I have a screw loose.

          • Sick of it

            In that case, what evidence were you referring to with regards to Columbus? I’d never actually read anything on him having a possible Jewish origin.

          • David Ashton

            As I am writing at midnight GMT before going to bed, may I respectfully suggest that you Google/Search “Proof Columbus was Jewish” on the internet, and go through the entries for the alleged clues? However, I also take on board the post from Defoe below.

            As for Mozart, he had a collaborator of Jewish extraction called De Ponte, converted to Christianity perhaps nominally since he also ran a brothel, who gave him some ideas such as the Golem.

          • stewball

            What do you mean gave him some ideas such as the golem?

          • stewball

            But they come from german stock. Except for Phillip whose mum is buried in Jerusalem.

          • stewball

            Rackateer? I’m shocked you should say that. Not every survivor is like Eli wiesel?for spelling. I’m proud he didn’t just sit back and let it go.

      • MikeofAges

        He was possibly of Jewish ancestry, with forebearers who converted to Christianity. Many such in European history. Nostradamus was one such. One of my distant relatives from a convert family married a crown head. Literally. Me? I just get marginalized in my own church for my trouble. For being a secular conservative and religious originalist.

        • Rhialto

          From my casual reading on this subject, it seems that many non-peasants had some Jewish ancestry. Jewish men have been abandoning Judaism for thousands of years, and they did not take vows of celibacy. Until the advent of Nazism and Liberalism it was not considered important.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Columbus was the first person to travel across the Atlantic and establish a permanent connection between both hemispheres.

      And for this we should honor him.

      • David Ashton

        Of course we should, whether he was one of “them” or not.

        • Brian

          I don’t give a rip if he was a crypto; I support him because I see those who are attacking him, and why.

      • MikeofAges

        Keep it simple. He was the one who made it stick. He kick started the global ecumene. William McNeill’s (b. 1917) favorite word. His magnum work, Rise of the West was published was published just before it began to become clear to the more discerning that Western Civilization’s future was endangered due its inability to meet the challenge represented by the rise of the Third World. McNeill intended his work to be a response to Oswald Spengler’s pessimism.

        • David Ashton

          It has been said that things went wrong from 1492 – otherwise the human subspecies might have evolved into separate species. In the 1930s Spengler warned against the movement of economic power away from Europe and danger of eventual race war. We should certainly make every effort to unite the West against the drive of global supremacy by China instead of succumbing to it and even assisting it as in the recent case of UK trade arrangements. It remains to be seen as to what the neocon-banker elite lodged in the west will do about the emergent challenge from a xenophobic oriental “Middle Empire”. Shall we ask John Engelman?

          • MikeofAges

            The risks the West faced were known long before the era of the Cold War. I don’t think 500 years more of separation would change the species though. As yet, we do not know how new species unable to breed with other types descended from the same progtenitors are created. All we know for certain is that reproductive separation over a very long period of time is required. For the present human species, that time period might be 500,000 years.

          • David Ashton

            I don’t agree personally with that remark about human speciation.

            The rise and fall of nations and cvilizations, and the authors who have written on it, have been of great interest to me since I read Oswald Spengler and Geoffrey Barraclough as a teenager, but too big a subject for this thread.

          • MikeofAges

            Biological speciation apparently takes a long time. If you wanted to take two groups of humans, however you selected them, to develop into different biological species not able to interbreed anymore, you would need a very long period of absolute separation. Same for any species of animal. For some it might not occur even over millions of years.

          • stewball

            By which time earth will have been burnt up by the sun.

          • MikeofAges

            Not so, not in 500K year time frame. Note, also, that Mr. Ashton has something else in mind, not biological speciation, which is defined as the loss of the ability to interbreed. either due to different genetics, different behavior or different range. What he is thinking of, it seems to me, are the comparative effects of separation and cosmopolitanism on type and culture. And questioning whether 1492 was unquestionably a good deal even for the West. I think he is alluding to the concept that could be termed “cultural species”, a synthesis of both culture and type. All of us are up to our neck in that issue right now. The non-whites who seek to supplant “whitey” are oblivious to the issue of whether the successor “cultural species” can maintain the material civilization we now have. If they have to count on the East Asians to keep it going, the deal will come with terms.

          • stewball

            How about the non Jews trying to destroy a national that has already been tried because of religious beliefs. They want the Jews to assimilate. Do they think antisemitism will cease? Of course not. Then it’ll be ‘those damn Jewish converts’. Am I right?

          • MikeofAges

            In the short run, maybe. Over several generations, no. Not in an American context. And not in Europe either, either long ago or more recently. I’m not sure what specific situation you are talking about though. There could be somewhere where there were dislocations as a consequence of Jewish conversions

          • stewball

            Have you not seen or read what’s going on in western Europe towards the Jews? All the countries that tried to destroy us by helping the nazis are at it again but more subtler this time. They’re trying to make all the important bits of the religion illegal. They think if they stop us from eating kosher food, following the ordinands of God! Regarding circumcision. Forbidding the wearing of scullcaps in the workplace. They’ll think of more. They probably think the Jews will assimilate but the people won’t be happy with that in the long run. I know if I still lived in England I would not assimilate or marry out supposing I wanted to get married again which I don’t. You know. Once bitten twice shy.

          • MikeofAges

            Kind of absurd for one thing, in that the Jewish population of Europe is now very small, not more than one percent in any country. They should focus their efforts at forcing assimilation and conformity on the populations that actually are intent on destroying their cultures and nations.

          • stewball

            Why do people of different cultures and religions have to assimilate. My parents were born in England so obviously was I. I went to a government school, tthank goodness. I’d have hated to go to a Jewish school. We didn’t keep the sabbath as in certain trades one had to work on Saturdays. My father was an opthalmic optician and my mum was a sales lady. But I wouldn’t say we assimilated.All out ffriends were Jewish. A sort of ban was put on us at about the age of 16 or 17 to only mix with Jews. I would imagine that was how it went for all of us in the 1960’s. So what’s so important now. I agree that if they stay in their communities, only go to their schools, don’t mix with others not of your faith and culture thentthey are closing themselves up in a ghetto. I can understand that this sort of behaviour is unwanted but we have it in Israel as well. Theultra oorthodox close themselves up. Their schools do not teach the regular curriculum. They don’t learn English or arithmetic or any of the courses that would enable them to work not that they know what that is. Some don’t even speak Hebrew. They only speak Yiddish as Hebrew is the language of the bible. I’ve gone off track haven’t I. Sorry.

          • MikeofAges

            For European cultures, assimilation is a critical issue. If they are not going to find way to get non-European immigrants to go back to their home countries, then assimilation is the next best choice. Even then, the descendant populations are not going to be the same as they would have been without that immigrations. The issue is not what happens to small, affinity-based communities like observant Jews. It is what happens to big-affinity based communities like Indians, Pakistanis, Arabs and Black Africans.

    • mobilebay

      I shudder at what the kids are learning about this courageous man today. A few years ago, a grandson came home stating that Columbus was not a good man and reciting his school book’s take on that era in our nation’s history. Our schools are teaching revisionist history that we would never recognize.

      • David Ashton

        Self-hatred for whites and “Anglos” especially has been the name of the cultural-marxist game in “education” for years past, and not only in the USA. Western Colonialism, North American Slavery, Apartheid, The Holocaust and “Cold War McCarthyism” are their perpetual themes. “Groid-getting” just fits into their propaganda.

  • WmarkW

    We should all spend this day, reflecting on the true meaning of Columbus.

  • Just to contrast what this country used to be like to today. Below is a photo of the US Colombian Exposition half dollar issued for the 400th Anniversary in 1892 (and also struck in 1893). Approx 5 million were made, a few sold to collectors for $1 ea., half were relased into circulation with the rest being melted, they were 90% silver. It is the US’ 1st commemorative coin.

    Today I guess Colombus is seen as a big disaster as it led to the supremacy of whites and many injustices against primitive peoples. Thus no big commemoration on the 500th Anniversary -sorry!

  • Wethepeople

    Discovering continents and founding countries.

    One more thing blacks will never do.

    • Jack Burton

      Blacks are a genetic plague, a parasite that rides on Caucasoid DNA.

      As much as they complain about slavery, slavery expanded their DNA around the world and increased their worldwide population greatly. Look how they have polluted North Africa and the Middle East. Arabs have ruined themselves forever, same goes for Latin Americans.

      • David Ashton

        The blacks in the USA were not themselves responsible for the enslavement of their own ancestors, but this is no excuse for whites freely to interbreed with them. Lincoln and Garvey were on the right track with resettlement. Latin American eugenicists (except for Brazil) had some constructive ideas before WW2. Arabs need to look at their own demographic problems and Europe needs to resist their admission into our own heartlands.

    • Rhialto

      Blacks may never have discovered continents, but they did found countries. The Black race evolved in North Africa, and over thousands of years, moved south conquering/exterminating the indiginous peoples. and establishing tribal territories. Eventually these territories would become the countries of modern Africa.

      • Bantu_Education

        “Blacks may never have discovered continents, but they did found countries.”

        With the sole exception (that proves the rule) of Abyssinia (Ethiopia) all the countries of Africa were founded, and the borders established, by Europeans.

        “The Black race evolved in North Africa”

        Totally untrue – negroes evolved in West Africa (alongside their close cousins, chimps) then moved East and South East, killing and absorbing the indigenous Khoisan as they went. Where on earth did you read that blacks evolved in N.Africa?

      • Sick of it

        Blacks were pushed out of North Africa thousands of years ago (pygmies) and really only returned after the muslims took over. All of the Afrocentric claims regarding Egyptian rulers have been systematically disproven via DNA testing (and that’s one place where ancient mixing may have legitimately occurred).

        • Bantu_Education

          Pygmies evolved in the jungles of the Congo Basin. Like the Bantu they never inhabited N.Africa which, for practical purposes, should be considered as a separate continent since the Sahara Desert is an even more effective barrier to human expansion than an ocean. You and Rhialto seem to have been reading the same wrong information.

          • Sick of it

            I got the above notion from Carleton Coon’s research. I have not personally studied the archaeology of ancient North African populations (other than the Egyptians or a bit on the peoples of ancient NW Africa, all of whom were white). He gave a rather early date for their displacement. Pre-neolithic if I recall correctly.

            Also – the Sahara was never an obstacle for the blacks, the tribes further North were.

          • Bantu_Education

            I haven’t personally read any of Carleton Coon, but if we are talking that far back (10,000 BCE or more) then I have heard mention that Khoisan people (who are not Bantu), whose way of life was more suited to savannah than tropical jungle, may once have inhabited that region as well as East Africa where they are believed to have been until the Bantu arrived about 2000 years ago.

          • Sick of it

            Y DNA analysis links the Khoisan with pygmy groups. In any case, the lot of them were removed from North Africa a very long time ago (long before civilization developed there) and they had basically no part in the creation of white East African civilizations either (except possibly the status of slaves). I was just reading yesterday that Caucasoids were mining in South Africa thousands of years ago, so really the usual narrative of African history is so much Afrocentric bunk.

          • Bantu_Education

            Caucasoids in S.Africa? Nice to have a link to that story.

          • Sick of it

            If that’s all you want, check this story out – www (DOT) washingtonpost (DOT) com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/14/AR2007011400918 (DOT) html

            It’s a much older Caucasoid skull find in S. Africa. I had read other stories about even older finds, but Google makes finding such things more difficult (since 2006-2007?).

      • Jerrybear

        North Africa was originally Caucasoid. Ancient Egyptian mummies are classified as Caucasian by anthropologists. They had darker skin but their skull structure was European not Negroid. Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians also inhabited North Africa. They were Semitic or Caucasian. Sub-Saharan Africa is where the Negro evolved. If you want to throw them a bone, they did establish the kingdom of Nubia.

        • Sick of it

          Looking at the artifacts left behind by the rulers of Nubia, I doubt that assertion. Many of the ancient kingdoms/people of East Africa were white, with black invaders showing up generally in the middle ages.

        These three Americans were not involved in Detroit’s downfall. Could you provide the names of those handling Detroits financial affairs? Let’s see their races and ethnicities. I know one was biracial but he calls himself Black. He bailed Detroit out with something like 300 million.

      Also, Randy W. Schekman, UC Berkeley, physiology and medicine

      • Talltrees

        Do you mean Thomas Sudoff — German-American?

        Jewish websites claim Schekman and Rothman are Jewish. But, look up James Rothman’s photo. He looks 100% European to me. Germans typically spell Rothmann with 2 n’s. Jews, one n. But this guy does not look Jewish at all. He even has blondish hair, as many Germans do.

        What if Jews hijacked one of OUR winners. Who would look it up except us?

        • itdoesnotmatter

          Randy Schekman was born here, in one of the Great Lakes states, Wisconsin or MN.
          His Nobel is in medicine and physiology, specifically, cell physiology.
          I don’t know his religion.

          • Talltrees

            See my previous edited reply.

            Schekman could be born here and still be Jewish. That means he’s not European. Thomas Sudoff was born in Germany but is an American citizen. He’s European.

            Schekman, Sudoff, and Rothman all won in Medicine and Physiology.

            I wasn’t congratulating Americans…it was European-Americans.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            Ah, I see the schism; Jewishness is a religion in my view, not an ethnicity.
            I am sure he arises from Euro stock. Take a look. He’s a “ginger.”

          • Talltrees

            There are red headed Jews. Usually, Ashkenazi. Thought to be caused by European DNA. I agree Schekman is not representative of what we see as Jewishness and most likely mixed. He also has blue eyes.

            Did you look at a photo of James Rothman? Blonde and blue eyes.

            Yes, Jews are not an ethnicity. It’s just that they always brag about their Nobel Prize winners, so I had to brag about European-American winners.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            Yes, he is an Ashkenazim, red haired ginger.
            In Berkeley, we are surrounded by brilliant Ashkenazim. And…as the threadbare cliché goes, “some of my best friends are Jewish,” but I mean it.
            I am Scots-Irish with a sense of humor to match.
            I find Ashkenazim men “get me,” meaning they grok my mordant sense of humor and irreverence, appreciate my intelligence. The women, not.
            My scientist, German born and raised x-husband has never known what I am talking about most of the time. In spite of fluency in English, linguistic nuance and Anglo-Celt wordplay escape him.
            But then per the ethnic joke: isn’t that one of the shortest books ever written? “500 Years of German Humor.”

          • Talltrees

            Yes, we have Jewish friends, as well, Ashkenazi. Several in my neighborhood and quite close to one family. You are correct about the women. It’s the men who stop in to chat most often.

            Germans are industrious, intelligent, and yes, serious. Very strong work ethic.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            To be fair, ethnic joke-wise, another book, “Five Hundred Years of Irish Gourmet Cooking.”
            Yes, indeed, Germans are a high work ethic culture. Tell me about it.
            X-husband, of the “master race” [as his parents called the ethnically pure] an EE, and self-employed contract NASA project consultant, when home at all, spent all of his time in the study.
            The man was so focused that announcing meal times was traumatic; it meant hearing a spate of shrieked, outraged profanity; the gall that someone dare interrupt work.
            This was so extreme, our housekeeper asked me if she might be excused from knocking on the study door to announce meal times.
            His mum told me the explosive temperament was his part-Austrian heritage. That, I could not argue intelligently, but all knew well how we welcomed his time away at NASA installations.

          • Talltrees

            That’s so funny, and true of Germans.

          • Jack Burton

            They are an ethnicity, that makes no sense. They’re even more of an ethnic tribe than they are a religious people, because their religion itself is tied to their ethnicity, their sense of peoplehood.

            What you may mean is that they are not a race. They are not a pure race, that is for sure. They are genetically mixed, especially the Ashkenazim. Genetically they are similar to Southern Italians, a European-West Asian mix.

            It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the more Northern European Jews are the superior Jews, as compared to the Sephardim and other more West Asian Jews.

    Obama’s recent statement on Leif Erikson Day is no doubt a slight against Columbus, European colonialism and traditional America.

    As much as I like Vikings and am a Nordicist, not sure how Scandinavians would have done with colonialism. The Latins sure made a mess of South America.

    IMO the main reason America turned out the way it did is because of the majority German ethnic contribution. Compare to Canada, Australia and New Zealand which are less German, extremely liberal.

    • Sick of it

      New Sweden was a successful colony, but could not match arms against the Dutch who, in turn, could not repel the English.

    • John Ulfsson

      This is incredibly dubious, but I have a pet theory that a lot of nordic countries’ failure to colonize very well and expand very far is due to a lack of Roman blood that most other European countries had.

      • watling

        That theory would also apply to Africans. However, my own theory as to why Africans failed to colonise is because of their lack of intelligence, lack of initiative, lack of organisation, lack of wanderlust and lack of ability to build anything more seaworthy than a floating log.

        • Jack Burton

          LOL, are you serious. You have to be a civilization, a functional society before you can expand. Africans can’t even feed their own people, they don’t even have clean drinking water, they’re still struggling with the fundamentals.

      • Sick of it

        Most likely it was due to the fact that they were too late to the colonial game. Even the Dutch lost most of their colonies over time and they were one of the earliest players (with the Dutch it was a lack of military power, which may have also held back the Scandinavians).

        • Kenner

          Nothing could trump english sea power, sadly, that kept Holland and Denmark from establishing a permanent foothold…Otherwise, Argentina, Chile and Southern Brazil probably would have been colonized by Northern Europeans.

          • Sick of it

            And French sea power up until the “French” Revolution.

          • Jack Burton

            It would have been much better off. The whole world should have been colonized by Northern Europeans.

            Seriously, think about that. Blondes everywhere, rather than squat, brown mongrels.

      • Ella

        John, there are not many Scandinavian people. Norwegians are a small clan or tribe that wanted to expand outwards for more timber and other natural resources. Norwegians/Danes went West, and Swedes went East into Russia. The Vikings had problems colonizing the islands due to lacking larger numbers of people; Indians also shared parts for their islands like Greenland. They explored America for different reasons than the British or French did.

    • Jerrybear

      Except today’s Germans and Scandinavians are also suicidal leftists. As far as the Latins making a mess out of South America, they interbred with the indigenous while that rarely happened in North America. I think that has much more to do with the success of the United States.

      • Jack Burton

        AmRen deleted my comment. Isn’t that interesting.

      • Jack Burton

        You’re missing the point, of course not mongrelizing your country has a lot to do with success, but the fact that we didn’t miscegenate has to do with the better character of Northern Europeans/Germanics. The Latins in contrast interbred with the locals wherever they went. The whole reason we have a White consciousness, even the concept, is because of Germanics compared to the Latin mentality of conquest through interbreeding.

        • Jerrybear

          Excellent point.

    Columbus represents Whites, the source of all evil — and that’s why a day honoring him is controversial.

    “What Columbus did was map out a route that could be re-traveled by others, (at least Europeans). For that, he is indeed responsible.”

    My grandparents, all four of them, came from Genoa, so Columbus Day has always been a big deal in my family. I am glad that they died believing that he was as admired in the New country as he was in the Old.

    Let the debates begin!!

    From our friends at lefty CBS: “Five Misconceptions about Columbus”:

    1. Columbus set out to prove the world was round.

    2. Columbus discovered America.

    3. Columbus introduced syphilis to Europe.

    4. Columbus died unknown in poverty.

    5. Columbus did nothing significant

      Was watching a documentary about Vesuvius. Seems that some skeletal remains found in Pompei showed signs of congenital syphilis. If this turns out to be true, pretty much assures that Columbus wasn’t guilty of that particular evil, unless of course he also time traveled.

    This is OT, but, I don’t know if this has ever happened to anyone else here, so I’ll bring it up since it is nevertheless relevant.

    I was eating the other day at a restaurant with free wifi. I had my iPad with me, and was browsing the internet with no problems. But then, I tried to load the Amren site. No dice.

    It wasn’t a technical malfunction. It gave me a computerese type of thing that essentially said the page had been filtered because of “hate/intolerant content” or some such asininity. I’ll see if I can find the original wording if anyone is interested. I emailed the page to myself.

    So I was interested to see what other sites may have been filtered out for that reason. Well wouldn’t you know it, but the Nation of Islam site and the Black Panthers site both loaded just fine. No problem at all.

    I can understand a porn filter for public wifi, but this? Sheesh! And who makes these decisions for cryin’ out loud.

      You don’t say in which country you were but in Australia and UK (and probably many other “liberal” countries) it is common to find Amren blocked as a “hate” site. Now that I recall, it most recently happened to me a few months ago in a McDonalds in Alsace, France. Can’t have young impressionable minds being polluted with “racism” can we? Meanwhile, as you correctly point out, the black hate sites get a free pass.

          Thanks – yes I’ve seen that, but I don’t know the source of his figures and I suspect they are incorrect because SA always had a high murder rate. And, of course, the black population in the 1950’s was barely a quarter or less of today’s 50 million plus. What is certain is that black murders of whites have increased dramatically.

    It is an historically accurate statement. It is just as accurate to point out the Mongoloid presence in Northern Scandinavia from ancient times (we most likely pushed them into said extreme area). DNA analysis shows that some of the people there have Mongoloid Y DNA or mt DNA in their background.

  • watling

    I’ve yet to read a libtard explanation as to why blacks make such poor swimmers. You could be right about it being due to a fear of water. Blacks also tend to be absent from cycling events.

    If – as the libtards tell us – we’ll all the same under the skin, then there’s no logical reason why blacks should not swim as well as whites.

    I suspect that the libtards would rather avoid the subject and here’s why:

    If the black physique is unsuited to swimming then it clearly demonstrates that blacks and whites are physically different (pretty obvious, I know, but libtards refuse to accept it). The brain is a physical entity just like the rest of the human body. So, if black and white bodies can be different, so can their brains. If black and white brains can be different then there must be a possibility that black and white intelligence could be different. It’s simple logic but libtards won’t accept it.

    By the way, didn’t the bantus arrived at the Cape after the Dutch, in which case the Dutch have more of a claim to the region than the blacks.

    • Bantu_Education

      I’ve read, but only in race-realist literature, that Africans have much heavier and denser bones whereas Europeans (and presumably East Asians, who also swim quite well) have a honeycomb-type structure in their bones. Given that black africans are so powerfully athletic in so many sports, yet useless in the pool, one has to wonder. Yet even this doesn’t explain their non performance in rowing, sailing, etc., at which they should excel given their supposed strength and athleticism, and where being able to swim is irrelevant. Inability to swim did not prevent Europeans sailors from exploring the world.

      There is no getting away from it – you liberals who profess we are all equal – we are not equal, white people are a special people.
