Apocalypse, New Jersey: A Dispatch From America’s Most Desperate Town

Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone, December 11, 2013

The first thing you notice about Camden, New Jersey, is that pretty much everyone you talk to has just gotten his or her ass kicked.

Instead of shaking hands, people here are always lifting hats, sleeves, pant legs and shirttails to show you wounds or scars, then pointing in the direction of where the bad thing just happened.

“I been shot six times,” says Raymond, a self-described gangster I meet standing on a downtown corner. He pulls up his pant leg. “The last time I got shot was three years ago, twice in the femur.” He gives an intellectual nod. “The femur, you know, that’s the largest bone in the leg.”

“First they hit me in the head,” says Dwayne “The Wiz” Charbonneau, a junkie who had been robbed the night before. He lifts his wool cap to expose a still-oozing red strawberry and pulls his sweatpants down at the waist, drawing a few passing glances. “After that, they ripped my pockets out. You can see right here. . . .”

Even the cops have their stories: “You can see right here, that’s where he bit me,” says one police officer, lifting his pant leg. “And I’m thinking to myself, ‘I’m going to have to shoot this dog.'”

“I’ve seen people shot and gotten blood on me,” says Thomas Bayard Townsend III, a friendly convicted murderer with a tear tattoo under his eye. “If you turn around here, and your curiosity gets the best of you, it can cost you your life.”

Camden is just across the Delaware River from the brick and polished cobblestone streets of downtown Philadelphia, where oblivious tourists pour in every year, gobbling cheese steaks and gazing at the Liberty Bell, having no idea that they’re a short walk over the Ben Franklin Bridge from a full-blown sovereignty crisis–an un-Fantasy Island of extreme poverty and violence where the police just a few years ago essentially surrendered a city of 77,000.

All over America, communities are failing. Once-mighty Rust Belt capitals that made steel or cars are now wastelands. Elsewhere, struggling white rural America is stocking up on canned goods and embracing the politics of chaos, sending pols to Washington ready to hit the default button and start the whole national experiment all over again.

But in Camden, chaos is already here. In September, its last supermarket closed, and the city has been declared a “food desert” by the USDA. The place is literally dying, its population having plummeted from above 120,000 in the Fifties to less than 80,000 today. Thirty percent of the remaining population is under 18, an astonishing number that’s 10 to 15 percent higher than any other “very challenged” city, to use the police euphemism. Their home is a city with thousands of abandoned houses but no money to demolish them, leaving whole blocks full of Ninth Ward-style wreckage to gather waste and rats.

It’s a major metropolitan area run by armed teenagers with no access to jobs or healthy food, and not long ago, while the rest of America was ranting about debt ceilings and Obamacares, Camden quietly got pushed off the map. That was three years ago, when new governor and presumptive future presidential candidate Chris Christie abruptly cut back on the state subsidies that kept Camden on life support. The move left the city almost completely ungoverned–a graphic preview of what might lie ahead for communities that don’t generate enough of their own tax revenue to keep their lights on. Over three years, fires raged, violent crime spiked and the murder rate soared so high that on a per-capita basis, it “put us somewhere between Honduras and Somalia,” says Police Chief J. Scott Thomson.

“They let us run amok,” says a tat-covered ex-con and addict named Gigi. “It was like fires, and rain, and babies crying, and dogs barking. It was like Armageddon.”

Not long ago, Camden was everything about America that worked. In 1917, a report counted 365 industries in Camden that employed 51,000 people. Famous warships like the Indianapolis were built in Camden’s sprawling shipyards. Campbell’s soup was made here. Victor Talking Machine Company, which later became RCA Victor, made its home in Camden, and the city once produced a good portion of the world’s phonographs; those cool eight-hole pencil sharpeners you might remember from grade school–they were made in Camden too. The first drive-in movie was shown here, in 1933, and one of the country’s first planned communities was built here by the federal government for shipyard workers nearly a century ago.

But then, in a familiar narrative, it all went to hell. RCA, looking, among other things, for an escape from unionized labor, moved many of its Camden jobs to Bloomington, Indiana. New York Shipbuilding closed in the Sixties, taking 7,000 jobs with it. Campbell’s stuck it out until the Nineties, when it closed up its last factory, leaving only its corporate headquarters that today is surrounded by gates high and thick enough to keep out a herd of attacking rhinoceroses.

Once the jobs started to disappear, racial tensions rose. Disturbances broke out in 1969 and 1971, the first in response to a rumor about the beating of a young black girl by police, the second after a Hispanic man named Rafael Gonzales really was beaten by two officers. Authorities filed charges against the two cops in that case, but they initially kept their jobs. The city exploded, with countless fires, three people shot, 87 injured. “Order” was eventually restored, but with the help of an alarmist press, the incidents solidified in the public’s mind the idea that Camden was a seething, busted city, out of control with black anger.

With legal business mostly gone, illegal business took hold. Those hundreds of industries have been replaced by about 175 open-air drug markets, through which some quarter of a billion dollars in dope moves every year. But the total municipal tax revenue for this city was about $24 million a year back in 2011–an insanely low number. The police force alone in Camden costs more than $65 million a year. If you’re keeping score at home, that’s a little more than $450 a year in local taxes paid per person, if you only count people old enough to file tax returns. That’s less than half of the $923 that the average New Jersey resident spends just in sales taxes every year.

The city for decades hadn’t been able to pay even for its own cops, so it funded most of its operating budget from state subsidies. But once Christie assumed office, he announced that “the taxpayers of New Jersey aren’t going to pay any more for Camden’s excesses.” In a sweeping, statewide budget massacre, he cut municipal state aid by $445 million. The new line was, people who paid the taxes were cutting off the people who didn’t. In other words: your crime, your problem.

The “excesses” Christie was referring to included employment contracts negotiated by the police union. A charitable explanation of the sweet deal Camden gave its cops over the years was that the police union had an unusually strong bargaining position. {snip}

But a big reason that Christie hit Camden’s police unions so hard was simply that he could. He’d wanted to go after New Jersey urban schools, which he derided as “failure factories.” But a series of state Supreme Court rulings based on a lawsuit originally filed on behalf of students in Camden and three other poor communities in the Eighties–Abbott v. Burke, a landmark case that would mandate roughly equal per-pupil spending levels across New Jersey–made cuts effectively impossible. {snip}

On January 18th, 2011, the city laid off 168 of its 368 police officers, kicking off a dramatic, years-long, cops-versus-locals, house-to-house battle over a few square miles of North American territory that should have been national news, but has not been, likely because it took place in an isolated black and Hispanic ghost town.

After the 2011 layoffs, police went into almost total retreat. Drug dealers cheerfully gave interviews to local reporters while slinging in broad daylight. Some enterprising locals made up T-shirts celebrating the transfer of power from the cops back to the streets: JANUARY 18, 2011–it’s our time. A later design aped the logo of rap pioneers Run-DMC, and “Run-CMD” – “CMD” stands both for “Camden” and “Cash, Money, Drugs”–became the unofficial symbol of the unoccupied city, seen in town on everything from T-shirts to a lovingly rendered piece of wall graffiti on crime-ridden Mount Ephraim Avenue.

Cops started calling in sick in record numbers, with absenteeism rates rising as high as 30 percent over the rest of 2011. Burglaries rose by a shocking 65 percent. The next year, 2012, little Camden set a record with 67 homicides, officially making it the most dangerous place in America, with 10 times the per-capita murder rate of cities like New York: Locals complained that policing was completely nonexistent and the cops were “just out here to pick up the bodies.” The carnage left Camden’s crime rate on par with places like Haiti after its 2010 earthquake, and with other infamous Third World hot spots, as police officials later noticed to their dismay when they studied U.N. statistics.

At times in 2011 and 2012, the entire city was patrolled by as few as 12 officers. Police triaged 911 calls like an overworked field hospital, sometimes giving up on property and drug crimes altogether, focusing their limited personnel mainly on gun crimes committed during daylight hours. Heading into 2013, Camden was sliding further and further out of police control. “If Camden was overseas, we’d have sent troops and foreign aid,” says Chuck Wexler of the Police Executive Research Forum, a guy Chief Thomson refers to as his “wartime consigliere.”

Then, this year, after two years of chaos, Christie and local leaders instituted a new reform, breaking the unions of the old municipal police force and reconstituting a new Metro police department under county control. The old city cops were all cut loose and had to reapply for work with the county, under new contracts that tightened up those collective-bargaining “excesses.” The new contracts chopped away at everything from overtime to uniform allowances to severance pay, cutting the average cost per officer from $182,168 under the city force to $99,605 in the county force. As “the transfer” from a municipal police force to a county model went into effect last May, state money began flowing again, albeit more modestly. Christie promised $10 million in funding for the city and the county to help the new cops. Police began building up their numbers to old levels.

Predictably, the new Camden County-run police began to turn crime stats in the right direction with a combination of beefed-up numbers, significant investments in technology, and a cheaper and at least temporarily de-unionized membership. Whether the entire thing was done out of economic necessity or careful political calculation, Christie got what he wanted – county-controlled police forces seemed to be his plan from the start for places like Camden.

{snip}

No matter what side of the argument you’re on, the upshot of the dramatic change was that Camden would essentially no longer be policing itself, but instead be policed by a force run by its wealthier and whiter neighbors, i.e., the more affluent towns like Cherry Hill and Haddonfield that surround Camden in the county. The reconstituted force included a lot of rehires from the old city force (many of whom had to accept cuts and/or demotions in order to stay employed), but it also attracted a wave of new young hires from across the state, many of them white and from smaller, less adrenaline-filled suburban jurisdictions to the north and east.

{snip}

Energized county officials say they have a plan now for retaking Camden’s streets one impenetrable neighborhood at a time, using old-school techniques like foot patrols and simple get-to-know-you community interactions (new officers stop and talk to residents as a matter of strategy and policy). But the plan also involves the use of space-age cameras and military-style surveillance, which ironically will turn this crumbling dead-poor dopescape of barred row homes and deserted factories into a high-end proving ground for futuristic crowd-control technology.

Beginning in 2011, when the city first installed a new $4.5 million command center–it has since been taken over by the county–police here have gained a series of what they call “force multipliers.” One hundred and twenty-one cameras cover virtually every inch of sidewalk here, cameras that can spot a stash in a discarded pack of Newports from blocks away. Police have a giant 30-foot mobile crane called SkyPatrol they can park in a neighborhood and essentially throw a net over six square blocks; the ungainly Japanese-robot-style device can read the heat signature of a dealer with a gun sitting in total darkness. There are 35 microphones planted around the city that can instantly detect the exact location of a gunshot down to a few meters (and just as instantly train cameras on escape routes). Planted on the backs of a fleet of new cruisers are Minority Report-style scanners that read license plates and automatically generate warning letters to send to your mom in the suburbs if you’ve been spotted taking the Volvo registered in her name to score a bag of Black Magic on 7th and Vine.

{snip}

Nobody in North Camden calls the police. When the county installed the new “ShotSpotter” technology that pinpoints the locations of gunshots, they discovered that 30 percent of all shootings in the city go unreported, many of them from North Camden. “North Camden would generally like to police itself,” says Thomson. “Rather than getting a call of an adult who had assaulted a child, generally you’ll get a call to send an ambulance and a police officer to the corner of 7th and York because there’s a person laying there beaten nearly to death with chains.”

{snip}

North Camden is one of a few neighborhoods in the city that still feels less policed than occupied. There’s even an infamous brick housing-project tower here called Northgate 1 where the middle floors carry the nickname “Little Iraq,” for the residents’ reputation for being not quite under government control. In fact, when the state raided the tower to serve warrants a few years back, they were so concerned with ground-level resistance that they invaded from the sky, like soldiers in Afghanistan, rappelling onto the roof by helicopter. The state police believed they’d sent a message, but there are locals who reacted to the Rambo-commando episode with the same you’ve-gotta-be-kidding-me incredulity you see on faces of kids surrounded by multiple squad cars and millions of dollars in technology, busted for loitering or a few lids of weed. “They pussies,” is how one Camdenite put it.

Thomson, the city’s energetic young police chief–he carries an uncanny resemblance to Homeland lead actor Damian Lewis – is trying to provide a counterargument to the alien-occupier vibe. His plan is to stabilize the city with foot patrols one neighborhood at a time. On an October afternoon he drives me through Fairview, that once-dazzling planned city full of brick homes built for New York Shipbuilding workers nearly a century ago.

A little overgrown still, the place now looks, well, nice, with few of the rat-infested vacant homes and factories that dominate much of the rest of the city. Conspicuously, there’s no obvious drug traffic here. “A year ago, this space was controlled by gangsters,” Thomson says proudly. “Now you have kids playing there.”

He nods in the direction of a street corner, where a policeman in a paramilitary-style uniform, all steel-blue with a baseball-style cap, stands on guard. There’s one of these sentries every few hundred feet, each seemingly within eyesight of the other, each standing bolt upright and saluting military-style when the chief drives by. We watch as a few elderly black pedestrians amble by, and if you listen carefully you can catch the street patrolmen diligently offering RoboCop-ian greetings to each one as they pass.

The plan is to deploy more and more of these getting-to-know-you details, moving neighborhood by neighborhood, working their way up to places like North Camden, where the police will eventually answer once and for all the question of whether they will lay it all on the line for America’s most unsafe neighborhood.

{snip}

But Thomson’s optimism is based, again, upon the assumption that if you create enough safe streets and parks in a place like Camden, jobs will return, and things will somehow go back to normal. But what if the jobs stay in China, Mexico, Indonesia? Then the high-tech security efforts in cities like this start to feel like something other than securing a few streets for future employers. Then it’s the best security money can buy, but just for security’s sake, turning a scene like Camden into a very expensive, very dark nihilistic comedy: a perpetual self-occupation. Thomson clearly doesn’t believe this. He has hope–he’s as intensely focused on development gains like the opening of a new $62 million Rutgers-Camden nursing building as he is about locking people up–but even he at times can’t help but sound like a military commander charged with recapturing alien territory.

“What you lose in one month, it takes five or six months to get back,” he says, referring to the footing the police lost after the layoffs. “After what we went through, that’s five to seven years we don’t have.”

{snip}

A decade or so ago, you wouldn’t have seen white people just hanging out in downtown Camden. Now they’re here by the hundreds every day. “There wasn’t no white people up in this motherfucker,” says Raymond, the self-described gangster who was shot six times. Now, he says, the city is full of white kids on dope. “The last few years, it’s like an epidemic surge,” he says.

That’s the crazy thing about this city. The Camden story was originally a controversial political effort to isolate urban crime and slash municipal spending by moving political power out of dying nonwhite cities. And they do it, this radical restructuring backed by the best in Baghdad-style security technology, and for a second or two it looks like it’s working–only the whole thing might be rendered moot in the end by the collapse of the rest of America. All over the country, we’ve been so busy arguing over who’s productive and who isn’t that we might not be noticing that the whole ship is going down. There’s no lesson in any of it, just a giant mess that still isn’t cleaned up.

    Remember … No matter what bad things are done by blacks, it’s always the white man’s fault.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Leftwing hack Matt Taibi probably went to Camden so he could write a hit piece blaming Chris Krispy Kreme for the black pathologies on display.

      Expect more hatchet jobs on the New Jersey guv now that he’s the 2016 GOP front-runner.

      • sbuffalonative

        You’re likely right. When Christi runs on a national level, people will cite this piece and blame Christi. Another example of ‘progressive’ liberal priming.

      • Homo_Occidentalis

        Good. Let them rub his legacy in the dirt a bit. Then maybe real conservatives will wake up and vote for an independent candidate (provided he’s allowed on their state ballot).

      • Pro_Whitey

        You’re probably right, but I don’t mind them setting their sights on Christie. The sooner that illegal alien amnesty supporter is taken out, the better. However, it cracks me up that the author can blame a lack of state funding for the problem, when it is clear the town cannot support itself. The inability to support itself is the problem. The question to ask is, why can it not support itself?
        Reading these excerpts, I started thinking about how the author must have been sticking machetes in his eyes to create the necessary blind spots. Paul Kersey gives us the Occam’s Razor approach. Blacks and browns moved in, whites moved out to escape their dysfunction, the city collapsed. Not much more to it than that.

    • Spartacus

      He’s actually right, you know. Things would be better if you’d butcher them en-masse every time they commit a crime against a White.

      • I don’t have the stomach for that though I completely understand the sentiment. What I do think we need is to return to summary street justice by the police. Not revenge killings en masse but shooting looters on sight (which means killing flash mob members), shooting to kill rather than wound, etc.

        As with Radical Muslims, feral blacks can’t be reasoned with but they do fear force. Ultimately it’s going to be a choice between genocide versus secession followed by expulsion (not Alaska) or simply secession followed by strict immigration controls and border enforcement (Alyeska).

    • 48224

      Spot on. There is nothing wrong with blacks that isn’t the fault of whites.
      Also, if whites report on black crime on the news….they are racist and are rubbing it in. If whites DON’T report on black crime, they are racist because they don’t care about black suffering.

    • dukem1

      There’s more than a bakers dozen of phrases one can pick out of the article to describe what happened.
      “Dying nonwhite cities”.

      The reporter wrote it, but it seems as though he hasn’t a clue as to what he reported upon.

      • BonusGift

        You are picking up on what the standard Cultural Marxist writing style results in: that is, a kind of twisted illogical phrase filled politically correct run-on essay. The fundamental problem is that the facts are all screaming that blacks, and to a lessor degree Hispanics, are hopeless and prone to violence and more violence yet we must be made to feel bad about their plight that they caused. In short, trying to elicit sympathy from the host for the pack of violent parasites killing him or her is tough job and prone to contradictions and ridiculous words and related commentary from our Cultural Marxist overlords and their writing hacks.

    • sbuffalonative

      Blacks and their apologists have a stock excuse for every black dysfunction. Never is it blacks themselves.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      ““They let us run amok,” says a tat-covered ex-con and addict named Gigi, “they’re supposed to save us from ourselves–those white people.”

    • Triarius

      Never in my life have I ever heard a black take responsibility for anything. Nothing. Not a missing pen at work or the demise of Detroit. The argument that they have a child’s mind holds water for most and wouldn’t shock me if true.

      You can have them in videotape holding up their ID while committing the crime and they will still deny it is them.

      • I vividly recall a video clip from post-Katrina New Orleans that, in what Rush Limbaugh calls a random act of journalism, showed a black man standing outside the Superdome, which by then had been turned into an unspeakable hellhole by its invaders.

        “They didn’t tell us where to go” said this man-child.

      • GOD

        Yup, the good old “din do nuffin” defense.

    • GOD

      If the United States was 100% black, every single city would mirror Camden, much like every state would mirror Detroit.

      • Right — it’s unfortunate but they’re like that wherever in the world they are found in numbers sufficient to crowd whites out.

        It’s not our fault that they’re black. We didn’t make them that way, and all originally-well-intended efforts to change them — to civilize them — have basically failed. It’s time for these efforts to stop. (But they won’t, which is why secession is going to be necessary.)

        Paraphrasing the remarks that someone on this site makes from time to time, the 95% uncivilized ones are giving the other 5% a bad name.

    • John K

      And if the police had stepped in and gave these animals the beatings they deserved, then it would be whitey’s fault again for “oppressing” them and ” keeping them down”.

      It is insanity that we have empty suits and imbeciles at every level of authority, and they would allow a city to die so a group of savages could be appeased.

      • Second class citizenship — segregation and Jim Crow laws — would take care of much/most of the problem. However, that’s never going to happen in the USA as presently constituted.

    • gemjunior

      Yes, I saw that too. And made a note of it. “They Let us”… poor black negros, innocent lambs.

  • North Camden: It’s not so much just a black neighborhood anymore, in so much as it is a black African colony.

            They are already claiming it’s whiteys fault that blacks are killing each other in american cities as well as any other place where there are blacks.

            If isn’t white invented guns, it’s discrimination or colonization or whatever else they can come up with.
            Apparently, taking responsibility for your actions is a strictly white thing.

    • Jesse James

      If it wasn’t for white people Raymond would have died of his wounds some time ago.

  • Ragehol .

    20 more years of this and we’re gonna have to bring in the Judge system.
    Have you seen that Judge Dredd movie? Time to get the law in that pesthole.

    The cops are undergunned and outnumbered 100 to 1 and have to practically
    be a gang member themselves to survive in those ghettos. That is, if they aren’t
    literally gang members. I’m sure Camden PD is thoroughly infiltrated.

    Along with that, tests make sure that the dumbest of all races make it, and lets
    face it, you’d have to be pretty stupid to be a White cop in Camden. It is more
    dangerous than Iraq, you make half the money and get none of the respect, the benefits suck, will get passed by in promotions by Diversities and you can’t even do your job
    without being suspended or fired as a “racist.”

    The main takeaway is that the Civil War and those hateful clashes of fratricide that were ginned up by bankers got all those blacks up north to begin with.

    “Oh well, we’ll only let a couple dozen in, make cars and bombs. What’s the worst that can happen?”

    Camden can happen. That city used to be more than 90 percent White.
    War, what is it good for? Absolutely ruining White cities!

          What is he supposed to do, try and arrest black people for the crimes they commit in an overwhelmingly black city? We all know how that goes over in the “community.”

            He should do a job that benefits Whites instead of being some zookeeper. He ain’t no hero.

          • sbuffalonative

            It’s the universal ‘damned if you do and damned if you don’t’ scenario with blacks.

            If the police don’t control crime, blacks complain ‘white folks don’t care about blacks’. If the police target criminals, blacks complain they’re being harassed and profiled.

            You can’t win or break even. Any solution is condemned as the wrong solution.

        Well now they have someone to blame. The high crime in Camden is a white conspiracy.

      • Druid

        Camden doesn’t have a police dept. or a police chief. The police are run by Camden Cty. They did away with the Camden City police force last year.

    You want to clean up New Jersey? Don’t send in the cops, send in Tony and Paulie and Vito, they used to keep things clean in New Jersey, as least the violence was limited to business not beating up old people for their spare change.

    • So CAL Snowman

      They send the moolies to “slip and falls” school.

    • newscomments70

      Irish and Italian mafia were infamous for extortion rackets. They would shake down small businesses for “protection money”. These businesses were often “mom and pop” family businesses. They basically stole a percentage of their profits under the threat of beatings, mutilation and death. That’s actually worse than beating up old people for spare change.

          Given the false propaganda concerning organized crime, the facts should be rather startling for those with the wool pulled over their eyes. I had a tribal affiliated co-worker who was actually proud of these facts and that the average goy automatically assumed Italians were a crime wave scourge in the U.S., when in fact it was his kith and kin.

    “They let us run amok,”

    Hilarious that the only bit of truth in this article comes from some crack head.

    Camden is not a city. It’s one giant minimum security prison. Anyone can leave any time they want to. In fact, with generous welfare lining the pockets of your average crackhead with food stamps converted through various schemes into drug cash, it is actually quite easy to leave…..if you want to.

    Despite all the bellyaching, none of them want to. Why?

    “They let us run amok,”

    90% of New Jersey is extremely safe to live here due to a near police state. Every single one of the people in that article, could get on any of the extensive system of buses that criss crosses New Jersey and MOVE to a completely safe neighborhood where it is extremely rare to see the criminal element for very long. And the very first time they got out of line, twenty cop cars would show up with vicious dogs and a dozen cops would shoot to kill (did I mention taser was illegal in New Jersey….a fact that effects police tactics somewhat here). And no….black people are not particularly given the hairy eyeball by cops here.

    My point is, none of those people, individually has to tolerate that situation nor is forced to by economic deprivation or anything else. They simply don’t want to. And the REASON they don’t want to is they want to harm other people….something not tolerated outside their vicious inverse gated communities.

    All over the US, there are these communities, large and small. You can actually see them quite clearly on the demographic race map based on the last census. In most of them, crime is not particularly high….because police don’t arrest criminals and no one calls the police anyway.

    • Good point.

    • BonusGift

      Liked your last point on the lower crime rate due to lower levels of reporting crimes. In addition, there is the “Detroit effect” where there comes a point when there is almost nothing left to steal and/or nobody left to kill or rape (or nobody worth doing it to). It is truly a warzone analogy where when you have killed every living creature in a war zone the area has then been, by definition, pacified.

  • bigone4u

    Problem-reaction-solution, as David Icke likes to put it. Camden is a single example of a nationwide problem, all-black areas that are out of control. The reaction, stronger policing, is not a solution, but is instead a holding action, kind of like a quarantine.

    But in the long-run, since blacks turn everthing that is gold into lead, the effect of holding actions will wear off. The solution is to rein in the black population through sterilization of all long-term unemployed, prisoners, and welfare queens.

    Until this country has the guts to do that, the problems will be swept under the rug to fester until they break out again into mass conciousness.

    • M&S

      The key words in your statement are ‘all-black areas’.
      I take the exact opposite view of the article writer and yourself in assuming that this is a problem that requires a solution.
      We simply won’t accept that perhaps 30% of society is worthless and will always remain so and buying their collusion: white, Hispanic or black in keeping the peace means creating ‘zones’ for them under a “Just stay where you’re at, nobody will charge you for rent, heat or food, leave the zone and you are instantly responsible for your own life.” pact of common agreement.
      In this, the above article comes down to scare mongering: “Blacks can’t hack it alone and if we don’t do something, the U.S.S. America will founder and slip beneath the waves!”
      No.
      ‘All-Black Areas’ will sink and be not much missed for their loss by any, including other blacks.
      If you want to see how bad the alternative is, consider what the poster above said:
      They could leave anytime.
      To wit: “What, you want the infection to spread?”
      The liberal solution to this is vouchers to thin the herd and mix-race ‘gentrify’ the region. To me, that’s like taking the bobber off a pressure cooker and letting all the steam out.
      If there is one other thing in the entire spread that bothers me it is that young white dopeheads come to North Camden to get their poison. We should be making -that- a shame-based repudiation of membership in our society.
      You live above the line or you throw your life away below it. There is no slummin’.

      • Mike Conrad

        I think the key word is “sterilization”. Because so long as the permanent underclass is metastasizing at such an obscene rate, anything and everything else we do is pretty much pointless.

        • me

          Ain’t gonna happen. As long as the ‘government’ keeps these people dependent on their ‘generosity’, dumbed down, and allowed to do racist, violent attacks on Whites, it’s ‘all good’. The ‘progressives’ need the urban apes for the votes.

  • Strike_Team

    Nothing in this story provides images or situations that are different from any other majority black area in the US.

    I suggest everyone keep their powder dry. And it isn’t only the blacks. The hispanics are gaining on blacks in criminality, despite numbers tossed to the public by our “government”. They are totally of out of control in SoCal and getting worse and worse with each passing week, feeling their oats. The city of Los Angeles claims crime levels are the lowest they’ve been in 30 years, which everyone in law enforcement, never mind almost everyone in the city, knows is an outright lie. Things are worse than ever. Incredibly bad in some areas.

    People feel they can run. Maybe. But most of this is going to have to land on the collective doorsteps of the white population in order to effect true change. I hate to say that or feel that way, but it’s the truth. Once whites have nowhere to run, don’t care anymore about being called “racist”, and the economy has completely gone to hell, then we’ll see if enough whites have the fortitude to get out there and clean things up. And those that do straighten things out and remove the dreck, kick the criminals running the country out the door, clean things up, should have no respect or reward for those who sit back, hide, and then step out clean when all is said and done. No respect, reward, and no place for them in putting things back together. Those are the types of people who started the ball rolling the wrong direction in the first place. The “I’ve got mine” crowd.

    • “The hispanics are gaining on blacks in criminality, despite numbers tossed to the public by our “government”.

      Many true Hispanics (as opposed to the Mexicans who have infiltrated SOCAL and elsewhere) are from families that have been in what is now USA territory for hundreds of years. They see themselves as descendants of the Conquistadors, not the murderous Aztecs and Mayans, and they generally are loyal and productive Americans.

      The suburban Denver neighborhood of detached single family homes in which we now live is 40% Hispanic. These folks generally don’t bother with higher education and instead work their butts off both on the job and maintaining the values of their properties.

      I feel much safer now than I did in the condo development we moved from six months ago — so much so that we’ve put away our home arsenal, which we had bought because that neighborhood had begun turning vibrantly diverse.

      • Mergatroyd

        What you’ve written is not true of Los Angeles. The vast majority of Hispanics that live there are recent immigrants or illegal aliens, not “original” settlers before the whites came. Violent, heavily armed gangs of illegal aliens control areas of Los Angeles while the cops look the other way or aren’t allowed to touch them due to Special Order 40 or the fact that LA is a sanctuary city. They suck up huge amounts of welfare while working for cash under the table. Illegal aliens and other uneducated, illiterate Mexicans and Central Americans are not productive and do not pay taxes while draining the system. They’ve made once-viable areas of LA unlivable unless you enjoy living in third world conditions and not hearing English ever again in your neighborhood.
        Businesses have been driven out of the city due to over regulation, high business taxes and lack of an educated work force.

        • “What you’ve written is not true of Los Angeles.”

          It’s also not true of most cities near the southern border. The only point I was trying to make is that whites will often use the term “Hispanic” indiscriminately, to the detriment of rational policy discussions. The point would be easier to grasp if we dropped the term Hispanic and instead distinguished between Spanish-Americans and Mexicans.

          I like my Spanish-American neighbors (safety), but these days I would not venture into the barrio that centers on 6th and Federal (danger).

      • Lots of Colorado Hispanics are like that; in Pueblo they aren’t.

      • Strike_Team

        I’m familiar with the types of “hispanics” you’re writing about. They are a distinct minority within the larger population referred to as “hispanic”. A very small minority. If push comes to shove say, and hispanics overwhelm whites in the Southwest, what side do you think these minority members of the hispanic community will take? From what I have already witnessed, they will side with the majority of “latinos” to save their hides.

        • “[Lexonaut’s ‘Good Hispanics’ to coin a phrase, are] … a very small minority”

          Surveys suggest that about a third of Hispanics are opposed to loose border control, unrestrained immigration and automatic amnesty. These folks are Americans first, Hispanics second. They are losing jobs to Mexicans at a very high rate, they are tired of being victims of black and Mexican crime, and they will be valuable allies in the post-collapse era of civil/race war if we allow them to be.

          I’ll give you the last word.

          • Strike_Team

            I know what surveys say. I’ve seen much the same. But I am wary, given what I deal with, and that includes political officials and fellow officers who supposedly belonged to that good “third” of hispanics, but then began to act otherwise, either covertly or out in the open as the numbers of their kinfolk increased. When numbers get to a certain point, things tip. As in the population of any region being more than 10% black or latino. Things tip toward the way they are, the way the people are in the land of their roots. Sure not all of them. Most of them. We have areas in SoCal that are similar to what you described. They’ve been shrinking. And not because the good ones moved out. A fair percentage of the good ones started acting more and more like the rude, filthy, dangerous new arrivals. I have no doubt that should a real civil war hit, a percentage of hispanics will want to be on the “white side”, but it won’t be a third of them. It won’t even be a quarter. Could I be wrong? Sure. I suspect we’re actually going to see how this one works out.

          • Got some Hispanic neighbors like that here. They’re much more Spanish than Indio, and speak unaccented English. Good people.

    • M&S

      Do you really think we will be left alone to handle the problem ourselves? Do you really think the paramilitarization of our police forces is about controlling the criminals? This country has 212 Trillion in uncovered and unacknowledged debt. The Interest alone is now beyond payment. That’s what Obamacare is really about.
      This nation will not be allowed to sink into revolution, it’s debt owners in the UN will move in and sieze the property that they already ‘commercially’ own as separate zones of occupation and OWG will be the next step. Getting whites to a minority status is simply about getting the SUPERPOWER so badly on it’s knees that when we founder, much as Russia and Europe fell, the NWO will step up ‘with a solution’.
      And it won’t be a return of America to whites.
      Whites have no hope if they are fragmented. There is nothing wrong with hiding when you are outnumbered 1000:1 and all routes into and out of crisis areas are cut off via internal security forces.
      ‘County Cops in Corporate Uniforms’ is a part of that because County is State and State is onboard with all things Homeland Security oriented or it doesn’t get Fed Funding. Obama told us that we would be getting our own little Police State ‘as strong as the Armed Forces’ and this is the first step in that direction.
      Having a conveniently little nasty black drug zone to trial it out, is solely about getting people used to the idea of mass intervention as ‘normal’. It’s a massive psyops effort.
      And the sadness is that _Camden doesn’t need to be fixed_.
      Failures in life are failures in life. Leave them be and keep them away from whites who want to ‘play’ ghetto and they will self-destruct on their own, at their own rate. Within houses that are rent and utilities free and with foodstamps that keep them from rioting. Leave the zone and you are automatically off the dole for six months.
      I agree that we need a white nation with a white homeland but whites who organize don’t like to follow anyone’s plan against outsiders they simply exploit each other, that lack of ‘what’s ours is for us and no others!’ unity is how we got here.
      If we would reach an agreement by which X population couldn’t leave their little zoo and get the freebies we would give them by vouchered presence in our own communities anyway; then we can get down to _the business_ of whites giving jobs to other whites for white’s good alone.
      As that is what has traditionally brought us together, other than for war.
      The key is robotics so that one man can have a labor force which gives him the work product of five men without having to hire ditch digger ethnics. He can then give one of those worker bot’s salary equivalent away as ‘charity’ to the worthless and keep the other four himself so that this society can get the drudge work done that needs doing and pay ourselves well enough in the process not to be ashamed of it.
      I would welcome any white man who would help with that, whether or not he was a warrior in the race struggle or not.
      You start fine slicing who you will and won’t help as another white and you deny yourself partners as much as recruits.

      • Strike_Team

        Whites arrived at their current condition because they were allowed to remain fairly comfortable while the collapse was allowed to occur in slow motion in many areas. If whites are against the wall, all bets are off.

        You mention UN Troops, but that would be harder than one thinks to pull off, even in a disorganized US. The US military will fracture along racial lines. That is what the people at the top are worried about. Our combat troops are still overwhelmingly white, to the chagrin of USA Today a couple of years ago when they decided to have a look at the stories of “dark” people handling combat duties for the US in all those places we shouldn’t be. Special Forces are literally 99% white. When I was in the service I only ran into one hispanic in an area of the Special Forces and a couple of Asian guys. That was it. And it wasn’t that long ago.

        Whites do need to slice things, but I believe you may have missed just whom I mean when I speak about those who hide, remain in the background. And those types are; A) The people behind this mess, who claim to be white when it suits them. B) The kind of people who tend to go into politics, the first to jump up and want to be in charge, tell people what to do while never having actually “put in the time” everyone else has. C) Cowards. A group that too many whites have become members of. They want to sit around and figure out reasons why not to fight, why to kiss tail, how we should reason with “them”. THEY don’t reason with us. This is a key point that very few seem to notice or grasp.

        Whites don’t need America returned to them. They need to form their own zone, their own homeland. And then, if they want to, down the line, they can take back the whole continent by force. Some of the sillier cowards in “WN” come up with all kinds of fantasies about nukes, and how they’re in different areas of the country and so forth. These “intellectuals” show they have no idea of how things actually work and how they are set up. I won’t get into what I learned in the military, but some of the worst people to listen to are guys that over intellectualize a collapse of the current system, or those who become too matter of fact, say like “Matt Parrott” at the OO, who spews so much drivel it’s almost hilarious. But not quite. Because people follow characters like that.

        When whites are in a group crisis, they come together. Those who choose to stand back, remain “safe” have no place in running things at all should whites extricate themselves from the current mess, as I feel they will. The people who choose to play it safe should have no say in putting things back together. Cowardice didn’t get our ancestors to the top, but it will let our enemies back and/or have all the problems come back and start again.

        The people currently in charge would cut and run should things collapse and chaos ensues. They’ve already achieved their main goal of destroying the US. That’s what they live for. Destroying countries. Whites will be left to clean up the mess. That’s the likely scenario.

        • Mike Conrad

          “That’s what they live for. Destroying countries.”

          Extracting the wealth from host societies, and destroying dominant cultures which might have opposed them. The net result is indeed destroyed nations, but it’s more a ‘by-product’ of their will to power.

          A relatively minor quibble really, and your general observations are quite sound. And they should scare people.

          • Strike_Team

            I think the destruction of nations is a goal and a by-product of their “work”. Most people don’t get it.

            The hardest thing for people to “get”, and I mean white people, is that a group, a different race, may have a wholly different thought process when it comes to different things or even everything.

        • I swear we will immediately use nuclear weapons on any nation that deploys UN troops in US territory.

          You have my word on this.

        • Do you really imagine that anyone will let those nukes just sit in the ground?

          • Strike_Team

            Oh no, not at all. But I’m not going to go into what I think will happen with those once things slide down the toilet. I will say that the way people think they are controlled is based on Hollywood films and TV programs. Never mind the fluff out there on the internet. But I suspect you know that already.

    • Strike_Team

      I should also mention that I am involved in Law Enforcement, something that might not be clear to those who read my posts. I know exactly what the paramilitarization of police forces throughout the US is about. It isn’t about criminals. It’s about controlling whites and protecting certain urban areas where the kin of those in charge reside.

      There’s a better chance of the criminals running the US setting up a fake invasion of the US using Chinese troops than of the UN swooping in. Chinese troops under the control of those who already control us, as part of a deal between our masters and the Chinese government for many reasons. This is a more likely scenario than the ham-fisted UN stepping in with their global forces. The UN is a bizarre puppet show, controlled by those who continuously reject the organization’s demands. Playing both sides always.

      We’ll likely see a collapse here and then all bets will be off. A collapse is no guarantee that whites will rebound. But it gives us chances in many areas. It’s a matter of who is going to step up. And step up quick. Decisions will have to made quickly. There will be no way to rely on long range planning in most areas for a while. That said, if a massive collapse hits, things will likely sort themselves out much more quickly than most think.

      Let ’em laugh. Just remember the derisive laughter when they come knocking on YOUR door because they have nothing left. Better, though is to keep your mouth shut tight about any stockpiling you might do of food, water, fuel or ammunition. Keep a low profile, always and don’t make yourself a target of marauders or libtards who didn’t prepare for the economic apocalypse that they fomented.

      • Sick of it

        A low profile will likely not work in a SHTF situation. Setting up a state, even if only a small city-state, with a definite law, and a force capable of defending that law is the only way to keep from being victimized in countless ways. And before then, killing everyone who looks at you cross-eyed. Politeness doesn’t work very well today and people are not starving today.

        • Laika

          The SHTF will happen first; the small city-state will be a reaction to the inevitable ethnic warfare that is coming our way.
          A low profile and stockpiling, at the moment, IS the way to go. The cut off of the EBT cards will trigger violent food wars. Food, medical supplies, clean water will not be available when the massive welfare class starts rioting.

      Ah memories. Some years ago, that is before they disbanded the police force, I visited the aquarium in Camden with my family. I knew going in that the city of Camden was a hole, but holy smokes what a hole. I distinctly remember after the short ride off the highway to the aquarium deciding to drop my wife and kids off right in front of the building and just thinking how happy I was to have a fairly new car so that our odds of a breakdown were small to nonexistent. I essentially reversed the process upon leaving and told my wife that we would probably not be coming back to Camden any time soon. Also, I remember agreeing to help a buddy pick up a shipment (actually several) in Newark and thinking that the only way in or out of there was if the following conditions were met:
      (1) Only in daylight.
      (2) Only with two or more healthy males who were mentally prepared for what amounts to a warzone.
      (3) Only in cars or trucks that the odds of breaking down were near zero.
      (4) Preferably heavily armed.
      (5) Only having a very precise idea of your destination/pickup location (which perimeter must be fenced and topped with razor wire, and one or more German Sheppard or related type dogs).
      I am sure I’ve missed something but cities like Camden, Newark, etc. are truly warzone like merely from the presence of blacks and to deny this is to deny basic reality itself.

          It is really something to imagine the country before these large swathes of our primary urban areas turned into knee-grow hellholes of one variety or another. I am originally from California and my father was born in Oakland, and I can remember him telling me that before WW II there was hardly any in the state and downtown Oakland was nice (I understand there has been some gentrification there lately). Thanks FDR and Kaiser shipbuilding for memories, not. As always Detroit is symptomatic: 90% + white = “Paris of the West”, 90% + black = “Mogadishu of the West”.

Blacks will never figure out what they’re doing and don’t mind a police state, it is we liberty loving whites who oppose what they’re doing, hence, the anti-white agenda.

  • newscomments70

    Easy fix, just sterillize and contain the inhabitants. Eventually reopen shipyards and factories, making sure they are union free. And of course…keep everything white. Otherwise, there is no solution. “These kids need afta school programs”…that just doesn’t cut it anymore.

    • Max Krakah

      I believe containment will be the first order of business when whites retake the country. It will be a necessity. Immediate containment. Then either deportation, sterilization, or just watch them self genocide. I say throw small calibre weapons into the areas and foster small warlords to war amongst each other for small rewards. This is what they would really enjoy anyway, let them run wild and self genocide, then we deal with the remnant.

      • BonusGift

        There was a certain degree (although the feds stepped in and stopped it) of “self genocide” after the ‘War of Northern Aggression’/’Civil War’. Many blacks essentially curled up and died, and the country demographically became whiter/more civilized. Parasites don’t do well when they have to support themselves and, especially if their hosts separate from them. What reversed it was the feds stepping in and the blacks sheltering and moving North to leach off of northern whitey.

    • Xerxes22

      Why union free? Are you one of those Republicans who believe that unions are responsible for all our economic problems and that the White peasants should be content to work for whatever crumbs their employers choose to pay?

      • All people who think like you have to do is get together, pool your funds so you can be your own venture capitalists, build your own factories, make whatever products you want and pay yourselves whatever you want.

        Sounds difficult? Well, now you know the role of the business owners you loathe so much and think are exploiting you.

        • Xerxes22

          I don’t loathe them. I just want them to pay decent wages. BTW, These are the same Chamber of Commerce types who are campaigning so agressively for open borders.

          • Is there an organized union these days that isn’t officially on the record for amnesty and open borders?

          • curri

            As no doubt you know, the “labor movement” in the US is now dominated by public sector workers. Public sector workers benefit from increases in the dependent population, so it makes sense (at least in the short term) for them to advocate for more Third World immigration. I think the weak private sector craft unions are muscled into following the party line.

          • The big wigs in organized labor today are public sector unions and relatively low wage service employees unions. So they both have an obvious investment in anything which makes it easier for Democrats to win elections, even if it hurts them. The older industrial, trade, guild, craft unions, whose members mostly want no part of open borders, are officially on board with open borders, mainly for the same reason: It’s all about YAY BLUE TEAM.

          • Xerxes22

            The Republican party is so openly anti-labor that unions have no choice but to support the Democratic party. If the GOP had half a brain, they would openly campaign for union votes and they would get a lot of them. It’s a lot better than wasting their time and money looking for imaginary Black and Hispanic votes.

          • Or, look at it the other way. Officially, union organizations are so thrown in with leftist ideology that Republicans have no choice but to oppose them.

            Chicken egg?

            However, there is really no statistically significant difference, when examined in relatively small geographical spaces, between the way white people in unions vote and the way white people not in unions vote. This means that all the Stupid Party has to do to win more union vote is to win more white votes overall.

          • Laika

            Exactly right. What people don’t realize is the two major parties are interchangeable, controlled by the same forces and pushing the same agenda of open borders, never ending wars in the Middle East, debasement of the dollar and endless printing of money. Any differences between them do not exist, yet any 3rd party that challenges the Main Agenda is immediately slammed down.
            Ask Ron Paul.

          • Laika

            I seriously doubt the members desire open borders, it is their well compensated union officials who push it. Wages in those unions have been driven down by mass immigrations of cheap labor. 20 years ago a dry waller in California made around $20/hour, now they’re paid $10-15/hour and have been replaced by Spanish speakers. White construction workers complain bitterly that they can no longer find work in California. Supermarkets have fought back by lowering everyone’s hours to under 30 to avoid paying benefits and now to avoid the Obamacare mandates.

          • Laika

            Amen. And it is THIS (public sector unions) that is causing city after city to go bankrupt. They made promises to the unions vis a vis pensions knowing they couldn’t meet the future obligations required. The politicians were afraid of the unions and figured they’d kick the can down the road. Now we have city after city in California declaring bankruptcy because they cannot meet pension obligations, either that or they are laying off police and firemen.

          • Xerxes22

            There are many unions that don’t support anmesty and open borders, the craft unions, mine workers, teamsters and many others. The msm doesn’t report this since it doesn’t fit their agenda.

          • Laika

            The big unions were virulently against amnesty, until they were for them. Wonder what changed.

            //sarc off. NO explanations needed, I already know the reason.

          • “BTW, These are the same Chamber of Commerce types who are campaigning so agressively for open borders.”

            Yes, that’s a problem. We’re in agreement on this.

            ============================

            “I just want them to pay decent wages.”

            Apparently you think of a job as a birthright, or as private property that you own. In actuality the private property is the employing business. You, the worker, are a guest there. If you don’t like the conditions, leave and start a business of your own that’s better for you.

            That was the Founders’ vision and it was a good one, quite successful till the 1880s when the IWW people from Sweden began their now oh-so-successful agitation here against capitalism.

          • Sick of it

            The IWW people were actually here at least as early as the 1840s. We had a lot of 48er immigrants after the revolutions in Europe (some were Union generals during the Civil War!). Obviously latter day immigrants from Europe, as you alluded to, tended to have a certain worldview.

          • That’s interesting, I’ll look into it. Thanks!

          • Laika

            What are “IWW” people?

          • Xerxes22

            Internatinal Workers of the World or Wobblies. They wanted all the workers to be in one big union. They reached their height in 1923 with 40,000 members. after that declined and now they are almost extinct.

          • Xerxes22

            If I’m a guest in soneones house, I’m not expected to clean the house or paint the bedroom. A worker is not a guest. He is hired by the employer to do a certain job for a certain wage. The union simply negotiates that wage with the employer.

        That was Paterson, NJ, similar, and it was based on the real life story of Principal Joe Clark. I admire his efforts. He did bring order and cleanliness to the school, but the test scores remained low. Liberals lambasted him as a failure, and he was eventually removed, but they were wrong. Joe Clark was a success. It would be impossible to improve someone’s IQ. The school could have taught those students basic skills for surviving life at a rudimentary job. Keeping them alive and out of prison is really the best one could hope for. One comment about Joe Clark that spoke volumes was: “You cannot use a democratic and collaborative style when crisis is rampant and disorder reigns,” said Kenneth Tewel, a former principal. “You need an autocrat to bring things under control.” That not only applies to third world, urban high schools, it applies to the United States as a nation. Democracy does not work anymore. We need a right wing autocrat to stop the downward spiral.

  • Jeremy Laws

    “There wasn’t no white people up in this motherfucker,” says Raymond, the self-described gangster who was shot six times.

    That may very well be because white people only need to be shot at once before they leave and create a civil society for themselves elsewhere. Perhaps a slight intellectual gap exists between Ray Ray and us whities (although our ancestors would likely have just shot back to ensure that the civilization they spent generations creating remained their own).

    • “That may very well be because white people only need to be shot at once
      before they leave and create a civil society for themselves elsewhere.”

            I love these thoughts, but the NWO has designs on forced labor camps, just not for the groups that need it.

          • I have been to prison, and worked there, in the machine shop, the kitchen and on the grounds. I was paid 12 cents an hour. I do not believe that the prison system should be allowed to compete with the labor of free people. This would depress wages for innocent men and women by creating a labor surplus pool which could be forced to work at arbitrarily low pay.

            I also did laundry on my own time, four postage stamps a load, washed, dried and folded – customers supplied the detergent. I wrote letters for guys, one postage stamp for up to the whole six pages – customers supplied the stationary.

            You were a violent crime victim. I understand that. I was the victim of violent crime at home from the age of five to fifteen. When I finally returned home to my own house, the feds wandered around warning my neighbors how completely dangerous I was. That was 10 years ago.

            After my return home in 2003, I used to go get my mail at night, just so nobody would see me and say things like “You (moderated) Felon!”. I’ve been here ten years and off paper for seven, so nobody in the neighborhood cares anymore.

            Perhaps you should come to terms with what happened then, and let it go.

            I have vivid nightmares most nights, in which I have been locked up again and nobody will tell me why. In the early hours of this morning, Saturday Dec 14, I had a glorious dream in which my wife and daughter and I visited the family of one of Sayaka’s high school friends’ family in a vacation cottage near a beach. I was sorely disappointed when I awoke, but Sayaka was curled up against my back, so now I have an idea.

          It would be cheaper and cause less problems in the long run to pay them all to voluntarily move to Africa. Simply take the average cost of a lifetime prison sentence and give it to them on the condition that they never return to the U.S.

            During the 1960’s the prison population declined. The crime rate doubled. Since 1980 the prison population has tripled. The crime race has declined by half.

            I would reduce the cost of incarceration by the frequent use of capital punishment, and the thorough exploitation of prison labor inforced by corporeal punishment. I would end educational and recreational opportunities for convicts.

            I would keep criminals in prison until they were too old to be dangerous to anyone.

          • The “people” who beat you up must have hurt you pretty bad, but eventually you should let all that go for your own good.

            My ex-father used to beat the living (moderated) out of my mother, and after it was older, I tried trusting the PoS. He cheated me out of US $625,000 from my patent money, and I went to federal prison for three years for extortion. I threatened him. If he comes here, I really will do “everything”.

            He will never return to Colorado. He will never beat up my mother again. If I see that “thing” in human flesh again, I’ll turn his head 180 degrees around so he can watch me kick his behind. My mother told the FBI in 1999 that she was delighted he was absolutely terrified of me.

            I picked up the bill. I always did, starting at age 14.

          • JohnEngelman

            What does that have to do with anything? This is what matters:

            more punishment = less crime

          • I was punished for threatening the (moderated) but our system of punishment devolves to laws and courts and who calls the cops first.

          • Actually if we gave them $100K each and simply printed more money to handle it, I bet the value of the dollar would rise against all major currencies as well as gold once they were expatriated.

            However they’ll never leave volutarily at this time: irregardless of how much one offered them.

          • What about self-rehabilitation? I have been home ten years and off paper for seven. My first job after getting out was making sandwiches at Subway. The owner loved me because I could bring my own tools and fix anything in the store. I worked 10:00 to 16:00 and went back after dinner to do maintenance.

            A lot of people get locked up, and I used to like talking with them. They are not all bad. In fact, when you get the white and injun ones away from drugs and booze long enough, they’re pretty good.

            Let them do their time in a humane environment.

      Mandated birth control for anyone receiving any kind of means tested government program (welfare and food stamps but not your social security) and you would basically eliminate poverty in one generation.

      This combined with a tax incentive for high income people to procreate and you can create a eugenic society that only gets better with time.

      But you know, eugenics are the devil. Oh and if you dare want to keep Kyaeisha or Dasini from having 10 kids with 10 different baby daddies then you are a heartless bigot who just wants to trample human rights!!!

    In his “Politics” Aristotle said that some people are inherently capable of no existence but slavery. Violent criminals should be sent to slave labor camps where they will be worked until they die or are too old to engage in crime, and where they will be disciplined by corporeal punishment.

    • OK, but would you be willing to do it? I actually have a South African “sjambok” here. This is either a short, stiff whip or a long, flexible club – somewhere delightfully in the middle – and it is for beating the you-know-what completely out of blacks and right out the other side of them.

      If you want someone else to do this sort of thing for you, then you are signing on for more government tyranny by more appointed, mouth-breathing career nincompoops with GEDs.

      Hold court in the street, John.

      • JohnEngelman

      Violent criminals who commit murder, rape or assault our people should be executed and dumped in mass graves.

    Camden, Detroit: All black cities. Gee, I wonder why us big bad White people don’t like to integrate with blacks?

    • Jack Burton

      Detroit is 84% black. Camden is 45% black with mestizos and Afro-mestizos taking up the slack at 43%. The 5% of Whites who live there must have a death wish.

      • CoweringCoward

        That 5% of whites remaining in Camden are probably so dug in and barricaded in place, without someone going to offer cover fire, they are just pinned down.

        • IstvanIN

          They used to have a rule that city employees had to live in the city. There was a section, I forget which at the moment, where police and firemen lived. Maybe that one.

          • Denver used to do that.

          • Laika

            Same in New Orleans. It was how they cleared out the whites on the police force and replaced them with blacks, the same black police officers that joined the looters after Hurricane Katrina.

        • Jack Burton

          I imagine it’s Whites who are near retirement or already retired. If they moved they’d probably lose money on the sale of the house.

          Still, why live out the rest of your life in a Third World environment.

      • John R

        The 84% black Detroit actually represents a drop in the black percentage, probably due to the immigration of Arabs into the city. It was once over 90% black. As for Camden, yes, I read about the “Hispanic” population there. They are mainly darker Puerto Ricans, and probably mostly Negro anyway. So, I consider these to be “black” cities. But you are right that any White person living in either of these cities must be suicidal.

      • BonusGift

        I believe the “whites of Camden” are like those of Trenton where the whites they identify as ‘whites’ are of two kinds: (1) not really white, or (2) white but living in the remaining transition zone between the next suburb over and the 3rd world hellhole which just devoured their former neighbors and friends. Otherwise, the hellish existence they live is really too much to contemplate.

    Camden is approximately 88% black and mestizo. It’s a third-world city. If your population is third world then you’re going to have third-world living standards, crime, and all the other problems that go with it. There is no political fix for bad DNA.

    • CoweringCoward

    Isn’t funny, however, that it is whites who are always neglectful? The progressive’s seem to think that we have an obligation to care for blacks and mestizos the same as we care for domesticated animals. Basically they admit that they can not function independently.

Stripping us of our money is essential for their plan to exterminate us, because without a means of securing weapons, let alone food, shelter and clothing we cannot fight back.

            The ghoulish looking woman is not a woman, but a vengeful spirit called a Rusalka. Slavs believed a girl or woman who commits suicide, is murdered or otherwise dies prematurely risked becoming a Rusalka, who was trapped between life and death wandering in the woods and near lakes and rivers at night. While some would possibly fall in love with a man they encounter, others would kill them like this one above. In other words, they are like wild, out of control mermaids who like to carry off men as either their lovers, or victims. In the case of the ones who fall in love with a man, they find peace, while the others are basically, female demons.

      I hear you. At the gym, all I must do is glance at the soundless MSNBC monitor, and I am boiling with rage…Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow, or that nameless homosexual taking hissy fits. The other day, I saw an ad on the monitor for MMA. They showed the one black fighter hitting a white man, over and over in a loop. There’s no escape, even if you don’t watch the garbage. The other day at the pizza joint, I was stuck sitting in front of the TV monitor. It was endless basketball. That seems harmless, but a USMC recruitment ad appeared. They showed a little white girl salivating over a black man who just joined the USMC. How much more disgusting can liberal media be? Interracial pedophilia? My cable was cut years ago, but the poison still finds a way to seep in. Even with relatively innocuous subjects, liberals have to find a way to find anti-white messages to shove down your throat. My alcoholic father just suggested to me in slurred speech, “the army/navy game is on, you should turn the TV on”. I had to tell him for the 50th time, “I DON’T HAVE A TV”.

    If, as the writer states:’ Camden is just across the Delaware River from the brick and polished cobblestone streets of downtown Philadelphia; a short walk over the Ben Franklin Bridge from the Liberty Bell,’ then it is NOT ‘a major metropolitan area with no access to jobs or healthy food,’ If it has access to ANY food, which it apparently does, as even slimeball criminals eat, it has access to healthy food as well as slop.

    I have lived and worked in Hollywood. I have some knowledge of SAG. I knew some members and attended movie premiers, etc. It is a similar situation. Before unions infiltrated the studios, actors had a higher average salary, and the wealth was more evenly spread out. Now only a select few make unheard of salaries…the rest are making scale. When I say scale, I mean $60,000 per year. Do you know what kind of house you can buy in LA at $60,000 per year? That’s poverty level.

      There are no houses or condos in decent parts of LA for $60,000, even in places like Compton, South central LA, Lancaster and Palmdale where no one lives unless they have are a government dependent.

    As for SAG, what is the percentage of their workers who make a living from acting as opposed to those who don’t? Last I looked the ones who didn’t make their living from acting was in the 90th percentile.

    Excellent point, about old “Mumbles.” Amazing that an on the loose teenager mandated that an entire city be locked down. When Dorner was on the loose in California people bragged about sitting on their porches with firearms hoping he’s appear, and California is very strict about gun control. Same should have happened in Boston, where and ABP should have been put out to all citizens to be on the lookout, i.e., arm yourself to protect yourself and family in case this terrorist comes your way. Instead, people were cowering in their homes.
    The Founding Fathers would be ashamed.

    What happens when the money runs out to pay those RoboCops? Having them deployed THERE means other areas are not “protected” by police (which is NOT their job in the first place).
    The Second Amendment was put in place for a reason.

    Yeah, they fled into Texas which is now enjoying the crime and violence they brought with them. It was supposed to be temporary but Texas can’t get rid of them after eight years.

    This hi-tech surveillance and intense patrolling cannot be replicated in all places where black crime is rampant. It will bankrupt us and/or turn us into a futuristic police state. You can drive around in Chile, Argentina and Uruguay for days on end without seeing a single policeman. Not here. Police are everywhere on America’s streets and highways. It is creepy.

      That is the intention, to turn the U.S. into a police state, and create the gulag apparatchiks for extermination of white Americans wholesale. In other words, welcome to the politics of chaos!

    There’s one word missing from another one of these ‘pretending-to-be-clueless, “Gee – I wonder what could POSSIBLY be the reason,” articles:

    Those who cannot be named, or blamed are the ones who benefit from the “politics of chaos.” That is why they intentionally are creating chaos in our lands.

    “Once the jobs started to disappear racial tensions rose.”

    Ya see? It’s not that Negroes are feral and hate whites, the trouble is a lack of jobs that those same shiftless Negroes so desperately hunger to work at. Sweet Jeezus.

  • The principal is the same……..

    Deuteronomy 28:15………

    [ Curses on Disobedience ] “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you…….

    Remember the first Robocop movie? We can expect something like this on our streets sooner than later.

    The same thing happened in my area after many a hurricane. People knew not to go looting because if home owners didn’t kill them with shotguns, national guardsmen will with automatic weapons.

    When will America get to see the black problem for what it actually is?

  • pcmustgo

    why?

    • Because I was very, very angry at the time. In the words of William Munny, “I ain’t like that no more.”

    “I fear the paramilitary cops will occupy US…”
    Those paramilitaries are the regular police shmoes, they just accept and are given the high tech toys from Ohitler to play with. If you were a cop, and were given thermal visions, drones with space age optics huge Command Center Mobile Units, new guns with full auto and free grant money if you accept those technologies, wouldn’t you be happy too?

    Food distribution is a good point. People should note that the usual suspects have been buying up large combines etc. in an effort to control that power source as well. Using what is really our money of course to do it. I’m surprised more people haven’t noticed. Don’t be surprised to see more and more engineered, false shortages of certain crops/foods used as “test runs”.

    All of what you say is true. Here’s a tip; if there is a Mormon community in your area, watch them. If they seem to be getting ready for something to happen, there’s a good chance it will. Why? There’s a huge number of Mormons in the FBI, and not by chance. They are one of the groups of people in the FBI (and CIA) that are engaged in an internal, sometimes philosophical battle against the criminals who currently run the country. They really do know what’s going on. But it won’t publicly be said.

    No, I’m not Mormon. I’m not religious. But I am a realist. Things are crumbling all around us.

    That sudden disappearance of savings is what worries me. That will likely happen, and whites in the know will need to act fast to make sure other whites are aware of who is behind it.
