They don’t usually have much common ground but in a rare moment of unity lawmakers on Capitol Hill held hands and swayed together as the famous song from the Civil Rights movement We Shall Overcome was played.

Some of the lawmakers, which included House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, looked slightly awkward as they held their arms across their bodies.

Congressional leaders commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act on Tuesday by posthumously bestowing the Congressional Gold Medal upon Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife, Coretta Scott King, for their efforts in passing the landmark legislation.

The Kings’ children, Martin Luther King III, Dexter Scott King and Bernice A. King, accepted the honor in as several hundred looked on.

The civil rights leader was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1968.

His wife died in 2006.

‘The Civil Rights Act transformed our country,’ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California said. ‘It made America more American.’

President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law on July 2, 1964.

It helped end legal discrimination based on race, sex, color, religion and national origin, and many consider it the most significant law to come out of the civil rights movement.

Among those joining Pelosi in praising the Civil Rights Act and the people who made it happen were Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio.

Throughout the lawmakers’ remarks were calls for a return to the bipartisanship that made laws like the Civil Rights Act possible.

Remembering the civil rights activists who marched, protested and faced brutality and violence is vital, the lawmakers said.

But they added that it was important to remember the lawmakers who made passage possible.

Boehner said the Civil Rights Act might be the ‘most fundamental, the most consequential legislation’ in American history.

McConnell said that Martin Luther King Jr. deserves as much credit as any lawmaker in getting the law passed.

‘His role was not just to expose or to confront injustice, but to prepare the country to actually do something about it,’ McConnell said.

It was the second Congressional Gold Medal awarded to the Kings for their contributions to the civil rights movement.

The previous medal was awarded in 2004.

Bernice King said in a statement that she and her brothers were deeply honored that their parents were recognized for their ‘tireless and sacrificial leadership to advance freedom and justice.’

The King siblings have been locked in a legal dispute over the ownership of King’s Bible and Nobel Peace Prize.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Estate Inc., which is run by Martin Luther King III and Dexter Scott King, wants to sell the items, while Bernice is opposed to the sale. Their eldest sibling, Yolanda King, died in 2007.

The Congressional Gold Medal will be held in the newest Smithsonian museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, which is expected to open next year.

‘The Smithsonian will ensure that as long as there is an America, the courage, the impact and the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King will be honored, preserved and remembered,’ said Lonnie Bunch, the founding director of the museum.

  • Notice that Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell look a lot alike.

    • Raymond Kidwell

      Almost all of our leaders look alike (U.S., Israel and British leaders that is). You have a few English families along with a handful of Jewish families that basically represent nearly everyone in power. Even Obama fits the mold, though to a lesser extent due to his half African ancestry. His mom has some distance relation even though she came from a relatively average family.

      • But before we get too carried away, realize that any two white Americans (or even non-whites ones with some white ancestry, like Barack Obama) chosen at random are going to have a high odds of being some sort of distant cousin to each other.

        With every new President, we get stories about how he is x cousin x times removed from this one or that one. And some ignoramuses take that as indicative of some great conspiracy, when in reality it’s meaningless.

        The only Presidential relationships that matter are the close ones, the two father-son pairs (Bush, Adams), the grandfather-grandson pair (Harrison), and the second cousins James Madison and Zachary Taylor.

        That’s just the nature of a true nation of humanity. Since a nation is a loosely related group of individuals, then any two people from that nation chosen at random are by definition distant cousins of some degree. Therefore it stands to reason that that country’s heads of state will all be distantly related to each other to some distant degree at least, too, just as they’re related to the people they serve.

      • NoMosqueHere

        I don’t understand. Who are the few English and Jewish families “that basically represent nearly everyone in power?”

        • Jesse James

          The great majority of the globalist elite are Anglo-American Jewish hybrids. The House of Rothschild, a great Jewish banking family, seized control of the Bank of England and the City of London towards the end of the Napoleonic wars. During the 19th century almost every landed aristocratic family in England married into the families of the Jewish financial elites. It brought much need cash infusions to old aristocratic families and acceptance and power to the Jews. Some have described the British Empire as a joint project of Anglo-Jewish elites. One example is that the great British man of Empire, Winston Churchill’s mother was Jewish. When the US succeeded the British Empire as the worlds capitalist super power the old Anglo-Jewish elites joined the American elites in jointly ruling what we used to call “The Free World”. Funny how dated and ironic that phrase seems now. Anyway a study of US politics that the old American WASP elites have been pushed aside by a new globalist elite that is predominantly Jewish. As an example of how far the nation’s founding WASP stock have fallen out of power there are three Jews serving on the Supreme Court, the rest are Catholic or agnostic. Not one white Protestant serves on the Supreme Court and we wonder how much judicial activism has changed the culture and law of our country.

          • Seminumerical

            You have to give evidence that Churchill’s mother was Jewish.

            I hate Churchill personally. My grandfather was a battalion commander at St Valerie, famously the only one who didn’t surrender when give permission to by that fat ass Churchill.

            But you have to give us evidence. There are loudmouths on Amren of late. Let us have more grownup thoughts.

          • Jesse James

            I will admit up front that I could be wrong about Churchill’s mother as there is a strong controversy about this issue. The claim that his mother was part Jewish stems from some accounts that claim her father Leonard Jerome, an important American financier, changed his name from Jacobson to Jerome.

          • Dr. Möbias

            Whether Churchill’s mother was Jewish or not is of little import. What does matter is that Jews paid off Churchill’s debts right before his estate was to be auctioned off and he was forever beholden to them.

          • Uncle_Dan

            Got it! Churchill fought your beloved Germans because maybe his mother’s ancestors were Jewish (and maybe not), and because those always-scheming Jews are rumored to have paid off his gambling debts.
            Actually, what is most obvious and important about his mother is that she was American. Perhaps that’s what Obama resented.

          • Dr. Möbias

            It seems you have had a little bit too much of the politically correct Kool-aid. (History books written by marxist professors).

            Who do you think is more to blame for the ongoing program of white GENOCIDE in England? Hitler or Churchill?

            So, if we are not supposed to hate enemies who seek our genocide, exactly how should we feel towards them?

          • Dr. Cramden

            Barry Soetore aka Birack Obama was born in Kenya when it was a British Colony , that is why he resented Churchill.

          • Juggernaut3000

            “Actually, what is most obvious and important about his mother is that she was American.”

            What does that have to do with anything? You’ve been reading Howard Zinn’s one-sided, biased history books, haven’t you? The ones that say Hitler was the most evil creature that ever walked the earth while FDR, Churchill and Stalin saved us from the Nazis – otherwise we’d all be speaking German right?

            War mongering Churchill was doing his paymasters’ bidding by entering England into war. England had just lost 900,000 of its finest young men in WW I. WW II dealt the final one-two punch to England that left it weak and vulnerable to traitorous labour politicians whom the people voted for who had a hidden agenda of destroying white civilization through mass non-white immigration. This is what the English are dealing with now and are in the process of losing their country.

            Ironically, Churchill tried to stop what the politicians were doing and wanted to start a campaign to keep England White, including massive flyer distribution and billboards all over the country with the message “Keep England White.” He was dismissed as a doddering old fool as was Enoch Powell.

            Hitler wanted peace. Did you know that? He admired the British and knew firsthand the devastation and destruction war brings. Churchill refused to answer Hitler’s phone calls and throughout the entire course of WW II a peace offer from the Germans was on the table.

            Hitler even stated: .”I have devoted no less effort to the achievement of Anglo-German understanding, no, more than that, of an Anglo-German friendship. At no time and in no place have I ever acted contrary to British interests…”Why should this war in the West be fought?”

            Hitler even allowed the British to escape when they were trapped at Dunkirk. He could have, and in light of what happened, he should have wiped them out. But Hitler issued a halt order Why do you think that was? It was to allow the British to save face and keep their dignity in the hope that they would stop fighting.

            Then he said this,

            “He (Hitler) then astonished us by speaking with admiration of the British Empire, of the necessity for its existence, and of the civilization that Britain had brought into the world. ….He compared the British Empire with the Catholic Church ­ saying they were both essential elements of stability in the world. He said that all he wanted from Britain was that she should acknowledge Germany’s position on the Continent. The return of Germany’s colonies would be desirable but not essential, and he would even offer to support Britain with troops if she should be involved in difficulties anywhere.”

            – German General von Blumentritt

            I’m too am sick of the loudmouths on this forum too who only know the revised version of what really happened and who Hitler really was.

            .

          • Dr. Möbias

            They paid off Churchill’s gambling debts in the 30s. He was beholden to them.

            The following excerpt is from the Barnes Review, Jan/Feb. 2012.

            “By 1938, when he was 64 years old, Churchill had so lived beyond his means that his creditors prepared to foreclose on him. He was faced with the prospect of the forced sale of his luxurious country estate, Chartwell.

            At this hour of crisis a dark and mysterious figure entered Churchill’s life. He was Henry Strakosch, a multimillionaire Jew who had acquired a fortune speculating in South African mining ventures after his family had migrated to that country from Austria. Strakosch stepped forward and advanced Churchill a loan of 150,000 pounds sterling just in time to save his estate from the auctioneer. In the years that followed, Strakosch served as Churchill’s adviser and confidant but miraculously managed to avoid the spotlight of publicity, which thence force illuminated Churchill’s again rising political career.”

            This resulted in Churchill’s obedience throughout the rest of his life. Winston Churchill also wrote in his autobiography, near the end that “the Jews always get want they want in the end”, Winston Churchill was a depressed, stroke-afflicted pessimist, warmonger and war-criminal, who betrayed the English people and all European people by advocating for a “United States of Europe”

            If you are English, you are correct to hate and loathe this fiend.

            More historical cliches tossed at us like grenades. The good news is more and more people are “getting it” about how and why Western Civilization is being destroyed and, more importantly, who is doing this to us: an alien, hostile elite whose goal it is to wipe out the white race. The empirical evidence is all around us yet loudmouths keep telling us we should blame Hitler, blame Hitler, blame Hitler, repeated like Pavolov’s dogs. They too are serving their paymasters.

            Adolf Hitler was a champion and defender of European culture, and therefore of White People; that he was German made very action Germanocentric, but he saw the value and accomplishments of his home continent as the unity of Europe in all its facet.

            Anyone who read his work or what non-statist historians have written about him would understand this. Instead we get Howard Zinn’s Warped History of the World.

      • Raymond Kidwell

        Not true. In some cases it is about performance but usually its just about attacking non-Jewish whites. Jews have the highest performance and income and aren’t going to be discriminated against very often. The ADL, FBI etc. make sure of that.

          The Israelites are chameleons. As you say, the census proves they need no economic assistance, but they also sidle up to the entitlement trough at federal agencies and contractors. Right along side other Semites like Armenians, and alongside Albanian and Lebanese Muslims–and all listed as “white”. It’s demographic statistical subterfuge, but ultimately race replacement. “White people” (western Europeans) of the traditional, founding definition are almost extinct in those places. And it didn’t happen by accident.

    • Who Me?

      “Unless it’s against white American Christian males.”
      Make that STRAIGHT White American Christian males. (And to a slightly lesser extent, straight White American Christian females. White women don’t get as much slack in the minority stakes as most men think we do.

      • John R

        And you’ll get less as Whites become a minority in this country, and lawmakers focus more and more on race/ethnicity. Their concern for women was only a way to get White people divided amongst ourselves. Ditto for gays, and the so-called “LGBT” community. (perverts)

      • AndrewInterrupted

        It’s just the white females’ turn. The white males have been decimated. The anti-white management teams at federal agencies and contractors simply ran out of targets.

  • JohnEngelman

    Most blacks have not taken advantage of the opportunities opened to them by the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    The problem is not white privilege. The problem is facts that are often dangerous to discuss in public, but which practically everyone knows are true.

    • Robert Binion

      I remember Joan Baez, Peter, Paul and Mary and ’64, John. Back then most of the country would have found this inspiring. Today bathetic. I still listen sometimes to the old records but they don’t sound as once they did. For if fifty years has taught us anything it is that blacks will never be truly elevated, will never overcome themselves. (Look at Boehner. Someone mix a Tom Collins quick.)

      • JohnEngelman

        In 1964 one could plausibly believe that blacks and whites were innately equal, and that evidence to the contrary was the result of racial discrimination. That belief is no longer plausible. Unfortunately, it has become dangerous to argue otherwise.

        • John R

          And as the evidence mounts that the “Great American Social Experiment” was a complete failure as far as it’s White supporters thought, the propaganda must get more and more strident. If blacks are so good, why. fifty years later, do we have to promote them so much? Because the truth is becoming more and more obvious year in and year out. But we are told to ignore it. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.”

      They have “taken advantage” of the opportunities by completely demoralizing the White population. Sadly, in that respect, the “Civil Rights Movement” has succeeded beyond it’s wildest predictions. Why be educated, productive, when you can be on welfare, pop out kids right and left, and still “score” “white bitches” when you go to college free and study about your “great African heritage”? So, by “taking advantage of opportunities” you must define what you mean: I think they have indeed taken advantage very well.

  • Publius Pompilius Quitus

    How Republicans and Democrats worship marxist agitators, like MLK, shows how they work toward the same goals.

The traditional right and left, obviously, have collapsed and instead are reflections of each other.

    In fairness to the pols, some of the awkwardness is from the forced hand-holding — whatever the event might have been. As a teacher I remember a few touchy-feely, hold-hands-with-the-stranger-beside you type teacher workshops I had to attend.
    It would be unwise to attach much significance to this comically awkward display.

    • Maybe so, but no matter how you slice it was downright awkward and creepy. If the whites among them were more manly, they would have refused.

      I believe that many of them did quite well in custodial work, gardening, kitchen work, doormen and elevator operators, and other service occupations. Still others did heavy manual labor.

They can have their “civil rights”, but I want to see them put to work again instead of destroying our cities.

        They knew how far they could go, and knew better than to step over the line. This is what gave White people the idea that maybe they were ready to be let off the leash. They have proven that they still need controlling by somebody (White people) who is strong and fair and consistent, and ready to mete out immediate punishment if needed. Just like you’d treat a toddler–which is where most of them are at developmentally.

      You are correct, we will never get it back but they will not be able to keep it. They are destroyers not creators or builders, they feed on something that was built by the whites.

      • ThomasER916

        The Culture of Critique couldn’t keep South Africa. They used mass non-White immigration and “racism” to destroy Whites and the entire nation. They were hoping to install themselves as power behind the Marxist throne. In the end these Litvaks destroyed themselves. There is a difference this time around. The difference is there are many like me who spent time in the US military studying Marxist revolutions. We know how to fight and how to train people as snipers and saboteurs. We don’t need warriors, we need assassins. We only need to target the Culture of Critique and this will disappear. Just 2% of America’s population is connected to this collapse by blood and ideology. Of that only 1 in 500 are intimately connected to the system. Since they need to hide they won’t have high profile targets. They’ll be generic and they’ll have to rely on the magical “Nazi” as a means to gin up resentment and fear.

        Most people are jaded by now. That works to our advantage.

        • Dr. Cramden

          There is a Book called, “The Iron Heel” written by the alcoholic socialist Jack London. It glorified a fictional professor ,Ernest Everheart from CHICAGO and his struggles for the working masses who were oppressed particularly in the Chicago Commune. Sound familiar.
          It was published in 1907

  • Raymond Kidwell

    It didn’t end legal discrimination based on sex or race. Affirmitive Action still exists. There is still also a lot of illegal discrimination against white males which law enforcement turns a blind eye to. In fact a lot of the discrimination is carried out as a matter of policies by various government agencies. I would singe kumbaya if affirmitive action were made illegal (oh wait it already is). Well I mean if the U.S. would enforce its law equally to all people (already part of the constitution). Well I’m not sure that we have a system of law and order any more but uh guess it would be nice if we did.

    • Rhialto

      Many, at the time of its passage, 1964, thought it was the end of the Civil Rights conflicts. Actually the 1964 Civil Rights Act was only the opening battle. FedGov legal types used it as a club to force employers to hire and retain incompetent Blacks. Many more legislative and judicial acts, as you point out, have resulted in government enforced discrimination against normal White men.

      • Dr. Möbias

        Hubert Humphrey, a sponsor of the CRA bill boasted he’d eat the bill page by page if it ever spawned quotas or affirmative action.

      Affirmative Action culture is rampant. But, they repurposed it under the
      term: “Diversity & Inclusion”. That’s AA under a different name. But, even
      where AA is openly practiced, it’s never discussed, acknowledged–>all taboo.

      Only a myth. “This isn’t really happening”.

      Hello Truthseeker,

      I think we are seeing a test case in Iraq right now. Kurds, Sunni, and Shia – compare that to Caucasians, Mexicans, and Africans.

      Let’s see how it works out in Iraq.

      Right now, the Kurds have created their own country, have established borders, and are selling their oil to Israel. Seems that what is happening will result in the establishment of a border between the Sunni and Shia, and that will be the pattern.

  • Katherine McChesney

    Blecch. July 2, 1964.

    And then America began it’s slow descent into hell in a handbasket. The town I lived in, York, Alabama, is now over 80% black and my lovely all White neighborhood now has vacant lots and the downtown area is a wasteland. Whites moved away to escape the black undertow.

    • MBlanc46

      I’m perfectly familiar with white flight in large northern cities, but I’m surprised that it even affected small town Alabama. My condolences regarding your hometown.

      • 4321realist

        “I’m perfectly familiar with white flight in large northern cities,”

        Yes, it makes a person wonder why the others stayed behind, as if they love to be miserable.

        • MBlanc46

          In the areas that blacks took over, very few stayed behind. The white population of Englewood, say, can’t be more than a couple of percent, and they’re either coalburners or wacko do-gooders.

      • Katherine McChesney

        I have left it behind. No interest in going to visit a slum city.

        • MBlanc46

          I find it painful to visit my hometown simply because development has destroyed it’s character. To have it taken over by blacks would be very distressing to me.

    • Alexandra1973

      I was born and raised in the Detroit area. My dad was born there in 1940, spent just about his whole life there or in the suburbs. He died in 2000; he used to tell me what a nice city it was when he was a kid.

    • Jesse James

      Katherine I have seen this same process at work in south Georgia. My hometown was about 56% white when I was in Highs School. Most of our factories have shut down and forced people who want to work to leave as we are too far out for reasonable commuting distance to the larger metro-area in the state. Those that stay behind are elderly retired people and those who are happy to live on whatever crumbs the government gives them. We also had an influx of Mexicans that came into the area in the 1980s to work in the small manufacturing facilities and who have stayed after the companies went out of business or re-located. My assumption is that most of them must be supporting themselves by government assistance. The bottom line is that it is only a matter of a few years before the whites will no longer have the votes to keep control of the local government and police. Once that happens things will spiral rapidly downward until the place in bankrupt and not fit to line in anymore.

      • Katherine McChesney

        I’m so sorry for your loss. It is disheartening to see criminals and savages take over a town. Especially when your family was heavily invested in it. York was 90+ White when I lived there. Whites are now only 20% of the population. I don’t know why they hang on the way they do. Most of them moved away. Now disingenous liberal artists and foundations make occasional trips there to try to get the remaining inhabitants to take an interest in building the city into an economically viable community. It never works as blacks are only interesting in Whites when they are paying their expenses.

    ‘The Civil Rights Act transformed our country,’ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California said.

    Yes, it changed it for the worse, which is obvious with all the black crime and violence, the black anti-white hatred, the murders, the out of wedlock births, the dumbing down of our schools, the emergence of a black privilege policy that was for the purpose of allowing blacks to “catch up,” but only revealed they can’t operate on a level higher than what they did in Africa, which was thousands of years of being in a near stone-age state of evolution.

    It transformed us o.k., and the deterioration caused by the transformation is continuing today and undoubtedly will continue on into the future.

    The civil rights act was an absolute disgrace and a critical error. After decades it couldn’t be more obvious that segregation is the only way a nation could tolerate blacks and only then if a military presence guards the perimeter of their enclaves.

    Not a people any where on earth has the amount of privileges awarded to blacks and after fifty years they’re still singing “We shall overcome,” and pretending it is oppression or racism instead of lack of intelligence and a propensity for crime and violence that is holding them back. And the white weenies on both sides of the aisle know this full well.

    No wonder they feel and look uncomfortable.

      It’s all about the money, even for MLK he was in it for the money and the women.

      “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

      • Caucasoid88

        It is always about the money. But selling your father’s life’s work is such a blow to his entire legacy only a negro would do such a thing. Don’t get me wrong, I’d sell his wares, too. Everything he achieve was a farce, and his sprogs must know that.

    The US might not hold together that long

    • 4321realist

      “The US might not hold together that long.”
      Right on. And that is a more likely scenario than any other posited as to the near future situation in this country.
      This might be a long-winded, boring explanation, but it needs to be said in order to be made aware of the situation facing us.
      Many top notch economists who were right in correctly forecasting the economic fiasco in 2007 are forecasting big trouble ahead. They were laughed at then and are being ignored now by radical leftist academics who were clueless about the last plummet.
      Millions of US workers have dropped out of the work force, causing a drop in unemployment which is being reported about 4 to 8 points lower than it actually is; economic growth contracted in the first quarter of this year by -2.9%; wages have dropped while gas, food and energy have increased, along with other necessary costs to the average family; the dollar as a reserve currency is being challenged by Russia and the BRICS group, and Russia has begun the transition by pulling sales of gas to Europe and selling 400 billion dollars worth to China to be paid in Rubles, due to sanctions against Russia by the radical leftist US government.
      And US debt continues its rise to critical levels.
      If that isn’t bad enough, we have huge costs for Obamacare lurking in the background, along with 50 million people on food stamps, 11 million on disability, and if the ISIS establishes a permanent takeover in the northern Iraqi oil fields, oil will skyrocket in cost, taking many other attendant products and services with it.
      And, how long can the fed continue on with printing money based on nothing? They can’t, and when they stop interest rates will increase substantially.
      And the economic picture isn’t complete unless it is mentioned that there is still a HUGE back log of homes that need to be sold to improve the real estate market, which doesn’t appear to be improving and hasn’t improved much for years now.
      The power and money boys keep talking about the effect to the country on the large influx of aliens coming in, but they never seem to worry that we’re sitting on the precipice of an economic cliff with many indications a strong wind will come along and tip us over the edge, which, if it does come, will make amnesty a non-issue by comparison. In fact many will self-deport when the money faucet quits pouring out freebies to them and jobs are even harder to find.
      There’s much more but that touches on the highlights. And need I say that many will be taking to the streets?

          I define “genocide” as what whites did to American Indians throughout American history, and what Nazis did to Jews during World War II. I do not advocate that for white Gentiles. Consequently, your question is moot.

          • Hardy_Tor_Tor

            I see this lame argument and cliché used by anti-whites all the time.

            Look, genius, every nation on earth was founded by conquest, genocide and dispossession of the aboriginal inhabitants, including your beloved Asian countries.

            Telegraph Online article: “Stone-age Europeans were the first to set foot on North America, beating American Indians by some 10,000 years, new archaeological evidence suggests.” So it looks like your beloved Indians wiped out the first White population to make room for themselves.

            Why don’t you accuse the Amerindians of genocide and tell THEM to return to their homelands since they came later?

            http //www telegraph co uk/new…

            As for the typical Hitler reverence, genocide against my people, White People, is exactly the same thing as genocide against Jews. You anti-Whites want a world with no White people in it.

            You are no different to a Hitler that wanted a world with no Jews.

            It doesn’t matter what your OPINION is, what matters is the reality of the anti-white genocidal programs you endorse on this, a supposedly white forum.

          • JohnEngelman

            The evidence that Europeans came to the New World before Asians is very flimsy. Consequently, yours is a rhetorical question that merits deflection.

            Your association of academic and economic competition with “a world with no White people in it” assumes that white Gentiles cannot compete with Orientals. White Gentiles with well educated, high grade intelligence do fine in the United States.

      • HamletsGhost

            This is the race realist site. Race realists agree with Jared Taylor that, “we have a considerably less than one standard deviation difference between Asian IQ — North Asian IQ — and white IQ. I think that, too, is a result of genetics, and I think that that is what explains the dominance of Asians in certain fields, and their lower rates of illegitimacy compared to whites, their lower crime rates, their better achievement in school, their higher average incomes.”

    Ahhh, yes, fifty years of civil rights! So much to celebrate. And, of course, the blacks, by their subsequent behavior, have shown that all those negative things the segregationists have said about them were untrue. (Yeah, sarcasm meter going into overdrive. Have to cool it down….)

    Another point of
    view…..time is of the essence.

    If we remain on the path
    we are going the destiny of America is parallel to the destiny of Russia. The
    Jews provoked the Russian Revolution. What a cataclysmic disaster the
    revolution was for Russia and the world! Were the Jews incapable of fore seeing
    the outcome of their actions or was the USSR what the Jews wanted for Russia
    and the world? What will be the future of America, Europe, Australia and
    Canada? The Western world is being deconstructed by the Jews just as Russia was
    destroyed by the Jews, what will be our future? Will we have a future?

    To stop the Jews we must
    convince the decent Jews of the world to stop their fellow Jews. Harry Pottery
    is an allegory of the good Jews versus the evil Jews. Our only hope is that the
    decent Jews of the world will stop the insanity. Whites are powerless to stand
    against the tide of destiny.

    The frog in the boiling
    water metaphor.

    There were once a
    bunch of white Christian frogs existing as a majority in a homogeneous
    Christian world with our black brothers and sisters. The Jews the world did not
    want took refuge in our country and created the Utopia of Multiculturalism. The
    blacks and Jews got together and decided that white frogs were the evil majority
    who had oppressed the world and could not have the same opportunities as the
    Jews, the black frogs and the brown frogs. Laws were passed stripping the white
    frogs of all power. The Southern Poverty Law Center was established to make
    sure no white frog rebelled. Fox news was created to help the white frogs form
    politically correct attitudes. Rush and Glen helped the white frogs control
    their white anger. The Jews passed laws to immigrate only brown frogs into
    America. Oprah said all the old white people must die before we have the end of
    racism. Our African born black POTUS came from the land of Black Liberation
    Theology and totally agreed. The privileged white Jew, Tim Wise wrote books and
    gave lectures about the “evil weak- willed, genetically defective, culturally
    retarded white privileged European peasants”…. The reasonable white frogs
    brought into the tyranny of Multiculturalism. You know the story.

    If you drop a frog in
    a pot of boiling water, it will of course frantically try to clamber out. But
    if you place it gently in a pot of tepid water and turn the heat on low, it
    will float there quite placidly. As the water gradually heats up, the frog will
    sink into a tranquil stupor, exactly like one of us in a hot bath, and before
    long, with a smile on its face, it will allow itself to be boiled to death.

    Version of the story
    from Daniel Quinn’s The Story of B

    As the heat is slowly
    turned up, something happens. One of the frogs looks around, and actually
    notices the heat. He begins analyzing and forecasting what this rising
    temperature means for his future. He jumps out of the pot and encourages others
    to do the same. While the others are afraid of the risk of leaving,
    he is afraid of the risk of becoming extinct due to inaction.
    (Copied from the website Patriot Page)

    The time is now, we
    either JUMP or DIE.

    This is the first time
    in the history of civilization that a majority population has given up its
    sovereignty without a bloody battle.

    God bless the shrewdness of the Jew. God bless
    the ignorance of Christianity. Without the story of Jesus, the Jews could not
    have pulled off this debacle.

Vast areas of America now crime-ridden bombed-out war zones where whites fear to tread; anti-white discrimination now required by law; a black president who only seems to make blacks angrier; ever-worsening black-on-white violent crime; biggest problem no longer anti-black discrimination but “white privilege”–the very existence of whites; fabulously wealthy blacks, from white fans, like Oprah Winfrey, looking forward to the death of “old white people,” ironically many would be liberal Oprah fans; renewed militant demands for “slavery reparations,” etc. This would be as if the elected officials of Pompeii were to join hands in mid-eruption and joyously sing the praises of Mt. Vesuvius.

  • Yikes.
