Behind the Roar of Political Debates, Whispers of Race Persist

John Harwood, New York Times, October 31, 2013

President Obama last week sought to turn attention from health care to immigration—in other words, from one racially divisive issue to another.

Whites tend to hold negative views of Obamacare, while blacks tend to like it. Specifically, 55 percent of whites, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found this year, consider Mr. Obama’s health care law a bad idea, while 59 percent of blacks call it a good idea. On immigration, 51 percent of whites oppose legal status for illegal residents, but 63 percent of blacks and 76 percent of Hispanics favor it.

The statistics mirror the core philosophical division in Washington’s fierce battles over taxes, spending and debt. Whites say government does too much, while blacks and Hispanics say it should do more to meet people’s needs.

Those attitudes, and the continued growth of the nonwhite population, have produced this sometimes-overlooked result: American politics has grown increasingly polarized by race, as well as by party and ideology.

That reality promises to command more attention as the day draws closer when whites will no longer make up a majority of the population, which the Census Bureau projects will be in 2043.

Stanley Greenberg, a pollster for Mr. Clinton and other Democrats, said that recent focus groups among core Republican voters highlighted anxiety that “big government is meant to create rights and dependency and electoral support from mostly minorities who will reward the Democratic Party with their votes.”

“While few explicitly talk about Obama in racial terms, the base supporters are very conscious of being white in a country with growing minorities,” Mr. Greenberg wrote. “The base thinks they are losing politically and losing control of the country.”

{snip}

Fred Steeper, a Republican pollster who advised both Presidents Bush, worries about renewed attention to racial divisions for two reasons.

One is that it could taint what he calls the Republican Party’s “legitimate argument” in favor of self-reliance and smaller government. The other is the difficulty of winning national elections if the party’s hard-line on immigration continues to alienate Hispanics. “Racism may be a part of it,” especially among working-class whites, Mr. Steeper said of the immigration stance. “The Republican Party needs to stop pandering to that.”

He added, “The Republican Party needs to throw in the towel on the immigration issue.”

The Democrats’ problem is winning over whites. At the moment that’s a challenge of governance—as Mr. Obama’s struggle to implement his health law demonstrates. “The challenge we have with the health care law is similar to the challenge we’ve had in our politics more broadly,” Mr. Obama said in a recent interview. “There have been caricatures of what we’re trying to do.”

Most uninsured Americans who will be helped by the law, he added, “are going to be white.”

The risk for the country is heightened racial tensions. Mr. Obama’s advisers play down that prospect for the long term, noting younger Americans’ instinct for tolerance. “As rising generations replace older ones,” a study by the liberal Center for American Progress concluded last week, “concerns about rising diversity will recede.”

In the meantime, Mr. Steeper hopes Republicans can persuade more Hispanics, Asian-Americans and blacks to align with their message of opportunity. “We should have two parties based on a different approach to the role of government,” he said. “I don’t want our parties to be representing racial groups.”

    Yeah, and that’s why Tim Wise wants older whites to hurry up and die already.

  • especially among working-class whites, Mr. Steeper said of the
    immigration stance. “The Republican Party needs to stop pandering to
    that.”

    Yes, and stop winning elections while they’re at it. Working middle class white people are the absolute no doubt about it swing decisive demographic in many elections, including the Presidency.

    One is that it could taint what he calls the Republican Party’s “legitimate argument” in favor of self-reliance and smaller government. The other is the difficulty of winning national elections if the party’shard-line on immigration continues to alienate Hispanics.

    And yet we had the news earlier this week or last that Hispanics are the racial group most dependent on means tested social welfare programs.

    “As rising generations replace older ones,” a study by the liberal Center for American Progress concluded last week, “concerns about rising diversity will recede.”

    They’ve been spreading this tripe for several generations. Today’s older “intolerant,” “bigoted” whites were once the young college brats who embraced diversity and were going to change the world. Today’s white college brats that are going to change the racial paradigm forever will one day get old and meet that stone cold beyotch that calls herself reality.

    • Nathanwartooth

      That probably pissed me off the most.

      “Racism may be a part of it,” especially among working-class whites, Mr. Steeper said of the immigration stance. “The Republican Party needs to stop pandering to that.”

      So you need to stop pandering to middle class Whites because they are racist?

      Just go away Republican party. I’m just voting Democrat from now on.

      • Don’t get too mad. This “Mr. Steeper” is probably some hack know-nothing consultant.

        • Xerxes22

          These are the consultants that Republican politicians listen to. Mitt Romney was a recipient of this advice and he heeded it.

          • Some of our favorite websites are still to this day pushing the meme that Romney had good instincts but the barnacle class of consultants led him astray.

            I think the truth goes more like this:

            Romney believed these things, e.g. open borders, on his own. He picked Paul Ryan on his own, because that was a derivative of his managerial style when he was in the world of business, elevating young talent (“talent,” in his eyes) ahead of what would ordinarily be thought of as the usual schedule. If you don’t want to believe that Romney was for open borders all along, just look at the cavalcade of his former campaign hacks that are all over cable TV screaming for amnesty and open borders; personnel is policy, after all.

            “But what about Kobach?”

            I’ve already explained that — A prop to win the Republican nomination, dumped at the first moment he was no longer needed.

      • Yeah, vote Democrat. Vote along racial lines without any need for guilt.

    • OhWow

      I’m 24 and I can assure you many of us whites know all about the bantus. Even the ones who pretend to embrace diversity curse at the TV when they see another black man raping someone on the news. That actually just happened…another NYU student raped by a black man.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Nearby Vanderbilt Univ. students have been repeatedly mugged by two black males with guns. In addition to that, the hospital grounds have been the scene of multiple rapes and murders by blacks. I suppose that’s the way they are seeking THEIR privilege.

      • sbuffalonative

        The ‘progressive’ left likes to believe that racism is learned from ignorant, old white people. The truth is racial awareness is the result of experience with blacks and other non-whites.

        I have no doubt that as diversity increases, so will racial consciousness. You don’t need to be taught ‘racism’, you learn when you experience it.

        • pcmustgo

          yup, my story exactly

      • pcmustgo

        Can you share a link? I went to NYU years ago…

  • Truthseeker

    You know why whites are such a powerful race of people? Because it’s in their nature to take risks and forge new paths. They favor limited government because they function best when they aren’t being controlled by coercive forces. It’s hard to argue that freedom hasn’t allowed white societies to reach new heights and change the world. Unfortunately, whites now have to cater to races whose genetic adaptation to an industrial society lags behind their own. They tend to have less independent spirits and need someone to help them along in order to survive.

    Put these two sides together and they’re incompatible. One group needs freedom to thrive, the other needs to be controlled. What we end up with is a society where whites are growing tired of being dragged down by these other groups and the other groups resent whites for having more than them. It’d be so much simpler and pleasant for everyone if they all just had their own countries that operated at their own speeds and could efficiently address their needs the way they wanted.

    Diversity is weakness.

    • Erasmus

      *cough*

      (Said in my best Louis-Farrakhan voice)
      “Now we see that the word “diversity,” like the words “doo-doo,” “damnation,” “dysfunction,” “disease” and “death” all begin with “D.” Because “diversity” brings to a society mostly doo-doo, disease, dysfunction, then damnation and, finally, death.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Yes a slow painful death, diversity is the new Aids.

    • Alexandra1973

      Very well put!

    • Whitetrashgang

      Diversity is our greatest weakness.

    • Sick of it

      I feel the same way as the above and would further extend it to a nation’s control over their own economic policies, including the printing of money (Both the EU and the IMF pretty well stop this). The Greeks live differently than the Germans, they should not be expected to all follow the same monetary policy.

  • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

    concerns about rising diversity will recede
    .
    The example of Brazil, with its Afro-Mestizo no-go zones, is sufficient to demolish this nonsense.

  • OhWow

    It’s not that older whites are bigoted, it’s that older whites know how blacks are by in large. Locking your windows, bringing a bat to the door if they are “selling” something, walking across the street when you see a group of them, etc. It’s all defense mechanisms. It’s called playing the odds. We know the odds are MUCH greater to be raped, killed, assaulted, mugged, etc. by a young black male than a young white male. It’s the same reason a zebra starts to run when it sees a lion coming. Is the zebra racist too? It knows by their nature that lions are way more violent than pigeons. So why should he act the same around pigeons and lions? Same applies to humans and races.

    Blacks glorify crime, drugs, twerking aka human mating calls, jail, being arrested, etc. Then when you act weary and suspicious of them knowing they value these things, they begin to cry and get their feelings hurt. Y u be looking at me like dat foe? Cuz i black ainnit? U dun actin mad racist n shiz mang! Y u gotta hate onna brutha doe?

    Did it ever cross their mind that it’s how they act, and not how they look that makes everyone despise them?

    • So CAL Snowman

      I honestly think that most blacks are what White people would call bi-polar. They exhibit all of the symptoms of mania and depression. Mania is a distinct period of elevated or irritable mood.

      A manic person may exhibit pressured speech, with thoughts experienced as racing. Attention span is low, and a person in a manic state may be easily distracted. Judgment may be impaired, and sufferers may go on spending sprees or engage in risky behavior that is not normal for them (at least for White people). They may indulge in substance abuse, particularly alcohol or other depressants, cocaine or other stimulants, or sleeping pills. Their behavior may become aggressive, intolerant, or intrusive. They may feel out of control or unstoppable, or as if they have been “chosen” and are “on a special mission”, or have other grandiose or delusional ideas. Sexual drive may increase. At more extreme levels, a person in a manic state can experience psychosis, or a break with reality, where thinking is affected along with mood This can occasionally lead to violent behaviors Some people in a manic state experience severe anxiety and are irritable (to the point of rage), while others are euphoric and grandiose.

      Signs and symptoms of the depressive phase of bipolar disorder include persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, guilt, anger, isolation, or hopelessness; In severe cases, the individual may become psychotic, a condition also known as severe bipolar depression with psychotic features. These symptoms include delusions or, less commonly, hallucinations, usually unpleasant.

      Doesn’t the above describe nearly ALL blacks perfectly?

      • pcmustgo

        Hey, I have Bipolar and am white… Many of us have all of those above symptoms, but are very nice, caring, giving people. There is some overlap though. I’ve often compared my own deviant behavior in my youth to that of Blacks. The impulse control issue especially. But Blacks are far meaner than me. It’s one thing to be deviant somewhat. It’s another to be cruel and/or violent.

        • David Ashton

          Cruelty and violence is not characteristic of ALL young white Romanians either.

      • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

        I’ve never ever seen a depressed black person. Depression strikes the self-aware and the more intelligent.
        .
        The condition that fits them more closely is psychopathic personality disorder, in varying degrees of course.

        • Cannot Tell

          You are quite right. Blacks seem to be genetically predisposed to happiness. For example, despite it’s high level of poverty, corruption, and crime, Nigeria is one of the happiest countries in the world.

      • Talltrees

        There’s one huge difference. Manic-depressives are normally extremely intelligent…some geniuses. Constantly talking. If no one around, they will be on the phone. They drink and/or take drugs to stop racing thoughts and calm themselves down. They also have a tendency to being suicidal. Frequently, stop taking the medication prescribed for their disorder because they like the highs of manic-depression. Those with the severe type make the lives of everyone around them miserable.

      • David Ashton

        I am not sure that these characteristics describe “nearly ALL” black people in the world. There have been a number of studies of pyschotic blacks in British mental hospitals, but these cover only a small percentage of the total community. There was a study by Dr J C Carothers on the African mind which the WHO published in pre-PC 1953, and Dr R Lynn had a short article on the subject some time ago. An objective study would be well worthwhile, but hardly feasible in the current climate.

    • NoMosqueHere

      Younger whites know that they must toe the PC line in order to get ahead in school or corporate life. If young whites speaks out honestly on race issues they risk everything. Are they cowards or just being prudent?

  • Many younger whites (the vast majority, I fear) are very politically-correct.
    They are afraid to use their God-given common sense and refuse to see what their lying eyes are telling them.

    My Nephew (a Chapel Hill educated idiot) was beaten, robbed and left for dead by 4 feral blacks (the cops called it a “fight” and refused to investigate).

    My Nephew (a Chapel Hill educated idiot) continues to embrace all the liberal feel-good nonsense that has replaced his survival instincts.

    • Erasmus

      Only a small percentage of people who attend college become educated.

      Many of those who attend college may after four years be well schooled (indoctrinated even). Few, however, leave educated.

      • Ella

        Some of us sat through College and never became indoctrinated. We saw their research and lectures as horse-piles. We could not believe that we paid these professors to lecture to us. At least, half the Whites expressed the same disbelief outside the classroom. “Are they for real?” We got our degree and left for a career.

    • Nathanwartooth

      In a normal evolutionary environment people who didn’t have good survival instincts would die. Only leaving the ones who realized who was dangerous.

      The problem is that when “racists” have kids their kids are indoctrinated to the point where the kids will turn against the parents.

      It’s just like in 1984. Where the kids are so brainwashed they are not yours anymore. They belong to the state.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Eventually your cousin will win a Darwin award. Nature always has the last laugh.

    • bigone4u

      Mr. Gilani, we had a word for idiots like your nephew when I was growing up. We called them “n-word lovers.” It was pretty effective at getting the point across that we wanted nothing to do with them and their love of diversity. You should either tell your nephew off or try to undo the brainwashing, which is often superficial. Good luck with him because you’ll be burying him if you don’t succeed.

    • Spartacus

      No offense, but I hope your nephew gets killed by a groid.

    • Sue

      Bet he didn’t feel good when he was lying on the ground. Diversity means you must forget your ancestors. Perhaps he could be reminded of that.

    • pcmustgo

      See, I used to be super liberal on race in all the typical silly ways. I feel whites have to experience black/non-white hate deeply and on a highly personal level over and over and over again for it to sink in. Those were random strangers. Had he been screwed over by black “friends” many more times or people he knew and trusted, maybe it would sink in. It takes dozens of incidents to break the brainwashing. Patterns.

      • MBlanc46

        Or just live in close proximity to blacks for a couple of years. The noise, the rudeness, the disregard for property, and often enough downright criminality can be a real antidote to feel-good stories of racial harmony.

        • RisingReich

          Am I just faster on the uptake than most? Took me just two or three encounters with them to realize 98% of them are to be avoided.

          Years seems like needless torture.

          • MBlanc46

            I think that 98% is a bit high of an estimate. In my experience almost all of the unpleasantness is annoying rather than threatening and much of it is qualitatively just the stuff of urban life and only quantitatively different. Unless you have a very violent encounter it might well take a couple of years for the cumulative effect to really begin to wear on you.

      • William Krapek

        Yes. Exactly. Working in a black neighborhood finally took me over the top here. All the excuses are gone with the wind with me. But it took a while.

        HOWEVER: don’t throw them all out. There are plenty of decent negroes. Unfortunately not enough to make up for the rest.

    • MBlanc46

      I’m sorry about your nephew, but there are many people who are able to learn from experience.

    • William Krapek

      I’m 48, so all this started coming on strong when I was growing up. The PC propaganda was mother’s milk for us. The worst kind of person you could be us another Archie Bunker.

      But after years of trying to live the dream, I finally stopped thinking it was just a problem with “this” Negro or “that” Mexican. There’s just something profoundly wrong with the RACES. This means that while a good 50-60% are probably salvageable, we can show no mercy to the bad apples. We have to lock them up, snip them, and help them coast through a decent life.

  • Erasmus

    When you flood the US with tens of millions of low-skilled, poorly-educated illegal aliens, most of whom are from Mexico, you know what you get? Mexico. No one who can think beyond the next election cycle wants the US to become México Norte.

    Anyone can see that tearing down is easier than building up, and what we now have are lefties and clowns who claim to be members of the right trying, wittingly or unwittingly, to bring down the United States to the level of a 3rd world country. I do not wish that for my children and grandchildren.

  • Nathanwartooth

    In South Africa the indoctrination was so severe that there were many Whites in favor of handing their government over to the Blacks.

    That is exactly what will happen here. When the POC coalition has a supermajority and creates laws heavily discriminating against Whites there will be many young Whites who jump with glee at their chance to forgive their original sin of racism.

    • Svigor

      In my experience, whites do not feel guilt over their original sin; they feel hatred toward other whites for theirs. It’s just a way for them to get along and get ahead.

  • Spartacus

    “Whites say government does too much, while blacks and Hispanics say it should do more to meet people’s needs.”

    You mean the productive citizens want to stop supporting parasites, while the parasites want to consume more ? Quite a shocker…

  • bigone4u

    Blacks and browns, along with power-mad white Marxist hacks like Obama, the Clintons, Rahm, et. al. have robbed us of many of our freedoms, while targeting for extinction the few that remain. It’s about gaining and exercising power, while taxing us to death to pay for their harebrained schemes. At some point the slaves (that’s us) are going to revolt. I hope I live to see it.

  • drattastic

    Mr.Steeper obviously doesn’t differentiate between cultural and genetic predispositions. For many opportunity IS dependence.

  • NorthernWind

    “Mr. Obama’s advisers play down that prospect for the long term, noting younger Americans’ instinct for tolerance.”

    There is no such thing as an instinct for tolerance. Younger generations have been TRAINED to tolerate AGAINST their instincts. Claiming that it is an instinct is absurd, for exactly the opposite is true.

    “In the meantime, Mr. Steeper hopes Republicans can persuade more Hispanics, Asian-Americans and blacks to align with their message of opportunity. “We should have two parties based on a different approach to the role of government,” he said. “I don’t want our parties to be representing racial groups.””

    That’s a nice pipe dream. If you want parties based around ideology then you cannot have diversity. Get real. What you WANT doesn’t matter at all.

    The future is one of further decay and the total annihilation of tolerance. So few would actually DIE for tolerance that we might as well say that nobody would. The future is racial, it’s identitarian, and it is definitely not going to be characterized by tolerance. It’s a future I cannot wait for. Counting on my generation to be tolerant is so stupid that it’s funny. Everything is not as it seems.

    • MBlanc46

      “[I]nstinct for tolerance”.

      Rubbish, there’s no such instinct. One’s attitudes are determined in part by heredity and in part by experience. Most people who have serious experience of Negroes stand a good chance of becoming race realists.

    • Svigor

      Well said. “Instinct for tolerance” is an oxymoron.

  • c684570

    ““concerns about rising diversity will recede.””

    Actually, the opposite is happening.

    • WR_the_realist

      Indeed. The $PLC and its allies pretend to be concerned about the rise of “white nationalism”. (I put that in quotes because I rate myself as a race realist rather than a white nationalist, but you can be sure the $PLC lumps me in with the white nationalists.) In truth, continuing the policies of mass immigration combined with ever more demonization of whites is the best way to create more race conscious white people.

  • Talltrees

    At least Whites are coming into their own in Russia with the aid of Vladimir Putin. It makes my day, Forbes’ list of ‘Most Powerful People” for 2013 places Putin as #1, overtaking Obama.

    Not nearly as “polarized” as it ought to be!

  • SWPL2

    Political correctness is the new morality – a new religion for the young generation. They are less religious (if at all) and have adopted p.c. dogma instead.

  • Svigor

    Asdfa hits the nail on the head. Only Kool-Aid drinking libs buy this nonsense. Everyone else knows the young are always naive and idealistic, and the usually grow up and out of it. The NYT knows, they just want to score a few propaganda points.

  • Svigor

    Simply a framing problem. One man’s pessimism is another man’s optimism:

    “This country’s going down the tubes.”
    “The new future we can forge on our own, unencumbered by multiculturalism and multiracialism, will be a great one.”

    • JohnEngelman

      One does not get places in politics by changing people’s minds. One gets places by articulating and channeling attitudes that already exist.

      The growing acceptance and practice of interracial dating and marriage demonstrates that white ethnocentrism is fading, and that a political movement that is based on white ethnocentrism is bound to fail.

      Miscegenation is the coming trend. The future is going to be increasingly multi racial and multi ethnic.

      • Bossman

        Yes, for better or worse, that is the way it is going to be. People are all connected to each other these days even if they don’t live in the same countries. Those great racial and cultural differences of the past don’t exist anymore.

      • Extropico

        There has always been miscegenation; it is not some new trend. Your dream of an Asian/Jew hybrid master race to rule the rest will fail as Hitler’s dream failed. Genetic technology will be introduced to improve the genetics for all and people won’t necessarily choose to wish their own kind away.

        • IstvanIN

          Engelman may be right. I see plenty of black/white pairings, including white men with black females and white females with asian males. I also see plenty of the “traditional” miscegenation pairings. Very distressing.

  • Chris Granzow XI

    “But the future will be better because younger whites are replacing older, bigoted whites.”

    Is that not the same thing they said about the youth of the 60s and 70s? Now what’s their excuse? Perhaps the reality is that high school and college kids are too busy smoking, drinking and partying to really make an informed decision until they graduate and are forced to face reality.

  • John_HD

    Non-Whites cleaving to the Democratic party has very little to do with ideology. It has almost everything to do with who promises to give them more free stuff (well, free to them, anyway). They will continue to vote those who give them more freebies for as long as they last. The suckers in this massive transferal of wealth are we, the idiot white taxpayers. The venal leftists can’t possibly be so stupid that they can’t see that deficit spending as far as the eye can see, and an ever increasing parasite portion of the population in relation to the host population can only end in disaster. They know it and simply don’t care, as long as they have power right now. There has never been a bigger band of traitors than the leftist whites who have sold their very own progeny down the river for their own personal short term gain.

    • Rossbach

      I think the term that best decribes this policy of the Democratic Party is “racial socialism”, ie, tax the white oppressors to provide benefits for their nonwhite victims. When the nonwhites are the majority and the white oppressors have been entirely dispossessed, what are they going to do? Eat us?

        Jefferson’s best quote about the media said, “The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.” Probably, toss in magazines and the Internet today.

    • WR_the_realist

      Television does not prevent our current overlords from spreading lies and misinformation. Television is instead their preferred vehicle for distributing those lies and misinformation.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    Those attitudes, and the continued growth of the nonwhite population, have produced this sometimes-overlooked result: American politics has grown increasingly polarized by race, as well as by party and ideology.

    REALLY? That’s funny, I thought “diversity” was supposed to be our greatest strength! Now I find out that it only seems to be divisive and polarizing.

    That reality promises to command more attention as the day draws closer when whites will no longer make up a majority of the population, which the Census Bureau projects will be in 2043.

    Of course, none of this should cause us to question whether the forces that are making whites a minority are a good idea! After all, that would be racist (“racist” being anything that doesn’t cause increasing polarization and divisiveness and hurt whites).

    Got it? Good!

    I went to the mall tonight to get some socks from the Gap store.

    As I was walking in the mall, I noticed the crowds were almost entirely non-white. I felt like I was in a foreign country.

    So, I entered the Gap store, and picked up the socks. While standing behind a black family at the register, I had the opportunity to glance around at the posters on the wall.

    What I saw: 3 posters with blonde white women with black men, 1 poster with a brunette white with a Muslim or Sikh (he had a turban and a beard), and 1 poster with 2 white men (clearly intended to imply homosexuals).

    When I got back into my car to drive back to school, the classical station was playing Mozart’s Requiem. The fateful propriety gave me shivers.

    When the back-chillingly haunting Lacrimosa came, I actually felt a tear form.

    • Ella

      I might buy my socks elsewhere if Gap promotes advertising messages of mixed-match couples. I think Macy’s, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale support more conservatism unlike Benetton and the Gap stores. You have a choice to boycott the store or ignore their posters.

    “While few explicitly talk about Obama in racial terms, the base supporters are very conscious of being white in a country with growing minorities.” I live in a majority-minority State. We avoid many local events, especially downtown, because we stand out noticeably. We’re much more selective now in what we do for entertainment. We avoid parks on the weekend as minorities flood in to picnic. People do leave us alone, but it just does not feel like home anymore. It sounds like Mexico.

    Europe has a strong history of swinging left and right politically. Well, Europe is in the days of the Left, but it will swing Right as reactions increase from failed EU policies.

    I am a liberal white nationalist, not a socialist, but a believer in traditional, real liberalism, not the progressive crap the Demoncrats and Republicans feed us. My question to you is: why did it take you half a century to realize that blacks and browns are not us? It only took me until college to figure that one out.

    I am now looking harder for a place in the country. I must escape this mess my country has become.

    I’m done people. My husband and I are about ready to retire. Still at an age where we can take care of ourselves. We are from Kentucky, looking at a few places here, but open to West Virginia or East Tennessee.I can’t go north just to avoid the groid and the spicks. I will head to the hills.

      It”s like a circle. My ancestors crossed the Blue Ridge Mountains hundreds of years ago to live in peace away from the English. I will now go into those mountains to escape diversity.

        Want an easy way to prove to a PC zombie that “Celebrate Diversity!” is a crock of schit?

        Ask them if, when they meet a stranger, do they first compare what they don’t share in common or what they do? Ask them if they picked their husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend because of their differences or because of their shared likes and values. When they’re at a party or in a roomful of strangers, do they first seek to find something with which they have a common rapport or do they look for something they’ll disagree upon?

        Celebrate Diversity!
        *vomit*

          Well, perhaps Steve Sailer is right when he says that we’re supposed to celebrate diversity, not notice it.

  • Just this morning, Drudge has a headline of a Time story mainly about why Romney didn’t pick Krispy Christie. In passing, it says this about who he did pick, confirming my theory, and putting to rest the theory that our favorite websites spread that the barnacles made Romney pick Ryan:

    Mitt meditated on the choice that now seemed inevitable: Ryan. Beyond all the political pros and cons, Romney felt comfortable with Paul. He reminded Mitt of junior partners he used to work with at Bain: eager, earnest, solicitous, smart and not at all threatening. Bob White had a phrase for these buttoned-down go-getters, which he applied to Ryan: “client-ready.”

    I didn’t know about the church in South Africa. Such disturbing, traitorous actions .

    Another example of a shock is the epidemic of black violence, especially black racial violence. Everywhere in the country, from Massachusetts to New York to Arizona to Washington State, mob attacks, rapes, and brutal murders are everyday occurrences. I hope and believe that this constant litany will shock people out of their complacency toward integrationism. Another factor–perhaps not a shock, but more like Chinese water-torture, drip-drip-dripping on us day after day–is the persistent “achievement gap” in education, despite all the hundreds of billions of dollars spent and all the “programs” tried and discarded to remedy it. They’re running out of excuses. Sooner or later, all but the most ideological will see that only biological racial difference in intelligence accounts for the data.

    One thing blacks seem to really despise though is happy white people. Keep that in mind and it will explain all kinds of things they do.

    I think that it was Oswald Spengler who said that Christianity is the grandmother of Bolshevism.
