Who is behind the turmoil?

I know there are lots of possible answers to that, but it seems that the topic gets very little discussion either in the untrustworthy media or in the blogging world.

However for the past few months there have been stories here and there by those who are willing to look at this and to follow the truth (not the so-called narrative) but the subject is still neglected.

Are foreign governments involved? Most often it’s assumed that Soros is prominent in funding these things. But is that the whole story?

For example, some answers (which may be labeled ‘fake news’ by the censors gatekeepers,) but I will try linking here.

And here.

And here

This whole phenomenon looks chaotic and ‘spontaneous’ if only looked at on the surface, but when you think about it, it’s much better coordinated than we might believe.

The strange turns and twists of the Canadian leadership lately suggests they may also be playing a part in what is an international thing. It’s all ‘global’ now isn’t it? Sovereign nations are passe.

A worthwhile read

I hope all of you have visited the link to the ‘Circa 1865‘ blog on my blogroll.

The latest post is about ‘Men Without a Country’, that is the men who, after Appomattox, had to make their way back to a devastated and desolate ‘home’.

The piece also tells us, if we didn’t already know, that the Union army at that time had recruited (sometimes conscripted) men of many nationalities, from many countries, and this was what the CSA army was up against. It put them at a considerable disadvantage.

More and more, speaking for myself, it feels like we are a people without a country.

If you haven’t read the Circa 1865 blog I highly recommend it; it’s very informative and the writer is knowledgeable in his subject. It is sad and vexing that the general public know so very little about the history behind the WBTS, and a great deal of misinformation is out there.

Weatherford, Texas clash

There was some ‘violence’, as the media called it, at a protest in Weatherford, Texas over the past weekend. There was a group of citizens who were there to try to protect yet another endangered Confederate monument, when antifas, apparently from Dallas-Fort Worth, showed up in support of BLM. Unsurprisingly disagreements led to scuffles and clashes between the two groups.

The mostly-young antifas carried signs describing those who favored keeping the monument as being ‘traitors’. It seems almost humorous for antifas to call the people of Weatherford who were there as traitors; just what are they loyal to? Certainly not the country of their birth, and most certainly not their own kindred.

I mean, do they even know what the term ‘traitor’ means? Lately it’s “in” to call Confederates and their descendants ”traitors.” Quite the contrary; they were loyal to the death to their states, their Christian faith, their leaders (mostly good men, no matter what the ignorant say) and above all, loyal to their folk, their kin, their hearths and their homes.

What are antifas ‘loyal’ to? Anything at all? What do they believe in? Destruction and malice? Or are they ‘loyal’ to whoever gives them their pay for what they do?

And incidentally it seems the antifas found it hard to spell ‘traitor’, and some of their handmade signs read ‘traiter’ or ‘traiterist’, (I think they meant to write ‘traitorous’, the adjective, but oh well. Schools don’t teach spelling, grammar, or any such old-fashioned subjects.)

Apparently no one was seriously hurt during the scuffle, as the police dispersed the crowd of 200 or so people.

I am heartened somewhat to see that the people in Weatherford still have some spirit, to exercise their right to object to the removal of the monument — and to stand up to the antifas who crashed the party.

Is this effective?

I came across this ”meme” via Tumblr. It was evidently made by a Republican, and the message it’s trying to convey is obvious; it is meant to persuade someone that Republican Party ”cares” about the disenfranchised POCs. The Democrats are “The Real Racists.”

What this “meme” reinforces to the would-be voter is that somehow or other, White people kept them from voting. It reinforces the idea that all Whites oppress POCs, which is exactly what the militant groups say anyway. The Republicans or “conservatives” who use this kind of rhetoric appear to be trying to divert criticism from themselves, lest they be accused of being part of the ”systematic oppression” (of which we read yesterday). It’s a way of proclaiming innocence while pointing the finger at other White folk. We see the selfsame kind of thing with those who say ” my family never owned slaves,’ or ”my family weren’t even here until after the war.” Remember, the War Between the States was generations ago for most people alive today; can all of us account for, say, all sixteen of our great-great grandparents, that many generations ago? I doubt it, so unless it’s provable it won’t convince anybody.

But back to the ‘DR3’ business: do the DR3 people want to become the party of POCs? Do they covet that status? It sure looks that way from the outside. Do they not realize that the GOP would, if ”successful” in their courtship, become responsible for keeping their new members happy and satisfied? Are the DR3 advocates prepared to lobby for that trillion or quadrillion dollars in reparations, or to deliver on it?

As far as Democrats disenfranchising blacks back in the post-abolition days, or during Jim Crow, keep in mind that American Indians, who at least have a longer history here, were not allowed to vote until the 1920s, I think, though many were literate, having had a basic education via Indian schools. Blacks were not the sole ”victims” of disenfranchisement.

And come to that, White former Confederates were subjected to deprivation of the right to vote and bear arms. Many lost all they had in the War, as happened in my family. Whites did not have the protection of the law when attacked, as they and their families were after the War; they had to resort to self-defense though their legal right to do so was ignored. A bit like today.

There were literacy tests for voting after the Reconstruction period, in the last century, and many liberals (including Republican bleeding-hearts) found that terribly oppressive — but is the universal franchise good if the voter is not literate, not conversant with the laws of the land, or if they are being manipulated to vote a certain way? It was the Republicans, yes, the (still)-Radical Republicans after the WBTS that pushed for the vote for freedmen, with the purpose of nullifying the votes of the Whites when they regained the vote.

The history here is more complex than the ”Democrats bad, Republicans good.” The Republicans of the War era, particularly the scallywags and carpetbaggers, were extremists, scoundrels and race-baiters, manipulators who sowed division, thoroughly anti-White. That’s the gist of it; the Republicans of that time are not interchangeable with the Republicans of today — or are they? The political parties of the mid to late 19th century were pretty corrupt and I’d say they are more so today.

I’ve just about given up on trying to correct these upside-down versions of history in which Confederates are now being depicted as ‘literally Hitler’, and everything associated with them is being destroyed. At the same time the media and a lot of maleducated people are trying to make the South into some kind of evil regime, while the Radical Republicans are supposed to have been knights in shining armor.

And that’s at the heart of ‘DR3’, with both deluded parties smearing the South and really, White folk as a group, in an attempt to win the coveted black vote. Good luck with that, DR3 enthusiasts.

The magic word

I missed this piece when it first appeared. Merriam-Webster Dictionary kowtows to one nonwhite person who thought it her ‘right’ to dictate a more ”correct” definition of that nebulous, all-purpose term, ‘racism.”

Coincidentally I was just working on a piece about that very thing. However I and the lone female who rewrote the Merriam-Webster definition see it very differently.

It must be nice, by the way, to be able to just e-mail the sycophants at M-W and tell them to rewrite the definition to order, tout de suite. And it worked, for her.

What exactly does ‘‘racism” mean? The woman who complained by e-mail, and succeeded in bringing the M-W people to their knees, says it’s ‘systematic.” In other words it’s all coordinated, pervasive, and planned by Whites. Nothing can be systematic if it is a random thing, depending on individual feelings or behaviors.

“I basically told them they need to include that there is systematic oppression on people. It’s not just ‘I don’t like someone,’ it’s a system of oppression for a certain group of people,” Mitchum explained.

The very fact that this woman can simply call Merriam-Webster and be catered to is proof that there is no ‘systematic oppression.’ The systematic oppression is in the other direction: POCs have learned — well, they’ve known it for decades, really — that their wish is our command. All they have to do is call some individual or some institution or business ”racist” and voila, they get their demands.

This is how the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton et al enriched themselves – by means of systematically putting us on the defensive, and inculcating us with a sense of guilt. And words were the most common weapons used against us. This is how Whites end up genuflecting and kneeling at the command of thugs who intimidate them and issue commands.

Most of our folk seem to be scared spitless of the ‘oppressed’ POCs and their magic word, which they have used — systematically — to effectively silence us.

This woman is projecting, as do leftists of all colors, but she and her folk have profited the most from successfully projecting their insidious and systematic manipulation onto us, making us believe we are the guilty ones.

Sooner or later we have to get off this merry-go-round. No matter what is done to appease and mollify these people, their demands only grow. There will never be any kind of agreement or reconciliation. Why would they want that? They surmise that we are weak and frightened by mere words (as well as by physical threats and systematic aggression) which most of us have experienced.

The people who grew up under the present racial caste system don’t know any other reality. They seem to have no desire to reject the current order of things. Those most mind-conditioned are the youngest, and yet even some middle-aged adults are thoroughly resigned to the order of things — which is in fact ‘systematically’ anti-White.

The submissive mindset of Whites in general is becoming more firmly entrenched. How can this unworkable situation continue?

I think Thomas Jefferson was right. Either it will end with us being absorbed into the other peoples who now live on this continent (most of whom resent us at the very least, and they make it known), or there will be conflict, for which we seem to have no will, even verbal conflict.

After all, they have the Magic word at their disposal, while we’ve been disarmed psychologically.

Whatever “systematic oppression” we, or our ancestors of centuries ago were supposed to be guilty of, we are not forcing anyone to stay in this country if they find it so oppressive. But oddly their obvious preference is to stay and continue accusing, condemning, and assigning unearned guilt to us. It pays for them. They have ‘black privilege’ to issue demands and commands and then there’s affirmative action, jobs which don’t require competence, admission to once-elite colleges, and just general deference from weakling White folk who don’t want to be called That Name.

DR3, CivNats — two useless ideas

Louie Gohmert, GOP Congressman “representing” Texas, has moved to ban Democrats from Congress because of their history of ‘racism and hatred.’

At the Amerika blog, Brett Stevens sums up why the Republican fondness for the this DR3 ploy is not helpful.

“Dummy mainstream conservatives think that this is a good idea. Saner people realize that DR3 is always a trap. He has just endorsed far-Left ideas as conservative.”

As it happens I was just reading a thread at Free Republic where the original poster found a quote from Joe Biden that the O.P. thought was proof positive that Biden was a racist and should be exposed as such. One or two posters argued against the DR3 approach but could not get their point across to the original poster, who was champing at the bit to let people know what a horrible racist Biden is (or was, based on an old TV interview).

How does one get across to these people that it’s a useless strategy trying to discredit Democrats or leftists by pulling out the tattered race card? Nobody really believes the Democrats “care” about blacks, or minorities generally, even if they are certified “victims” according to the rules of Political Correctness. Everyone knows on some level that it’s all a cynical play for votes and support, but blacks’ votes are almost always guaranteed to go to Democrats. And no, it’s not that Democrats are ”keeping black on the Plantation” as the DR3 types say; they willingly choose to vote Democrat; they perceive, rightly or not, that that party best serves their interests. Who are we to argue with them? Blacks usually don’t share the philosophy or predilections of most people on the right. Trump is actively wooing the black vote and boasts of having a lot of support from blacks but I think he is overly optimistic or wanting to shore up his support among the CivNat segment who worry and fret about blacks being “neglected” by both parties.

There are still a great many conservatives who have now, after years of heavy ‘propaganda, come to believe that this nation was always destined to be a sort of rescue operation to save the world’s ‘tired and poor, huddled masses,‘, etc, and so therefore America must be multicultural and diverse.

In effect the social philosophies of the right are coming to resemble those of the left, and it seems that Republicans feel it is their duty to police people for ‘racism’ even though the left usually assumes that role. But what with the numbers of Republicans and their quest for Conservative blacks to display as examples, somehow I don’t think that lack of attention to black people or other ‘protected groups’ is the problem.

Hiding our political views

According to a Cato Institute survey, many Americans are fearful of discussing their political views with others.

This is understandable, given how insane the political situation is at the moment. Many news articles discussing this issue are fairly biased, with many comments implying that it’s the fault of the ‘extreme’ right.

Years ago a fellow blogger (right-wing, of course) asked why it is that it’s almost always leftists who start contentious conversations about politics in a roomful of people. My opinion was that such people are always looking to start an argument; they love to get the better of opponents by being loud and belligerent. Another factor is that they like to ‘flush out’ any potential enemies; they want to expose anybody on the ”wrong” side and gang up on them when possible: “out” them, shout them down, shut them down.

This happens at family gatherings as well as groups of friends or colleagues.

As it’s a hopeless cause to try to reason with an unreasoning, ill-informed, mendacious leftist, I try not to engage in any kind of political discourse with them. I’m sorry to say that I have some liberal/left relatives who will do their best or worst to try to start a quarrel, knowing how strongly I believe as I do; it’s as though they can’t help themselves, so driven are they to want to verbally assail their opponents.

As long as the left remain in some kind of frenzy over their imaginary bogeymen, there won’t be any sort of relaxing of tensions over politics. I think the left have worked themselves up, or been incited by the malicious media, into a delusional state. So as of now we cannot rationally discuss politics, and that, to me, looks fatal to any kind of reasonable discussion or exchange of ideas, which should be part of living in a civilized country. But clearly we do not live in such a country any more.

Portland protests

In recent years we’ve seen lots of protests by leftists; not so long ago there were critical remarks by some writers about children, even toddlers, being brought to protests and demos.

Now, we’ve got the ‘Wall of Moms’ in Portland, Oregon. This is a new twist, an attention-getter, but it sets a bad example.

It’s hard to find objective news in our controlled media, so obviously the media coverage is favorable towards these mothers who are acting as sort of human shields for their out-of-control, over-aged adolescents. I don’t know the average age of the antifas who are perpetrating these protests, but they seem mostly old enough to know better — and old enough to function without Mommy acting as their keeper or bodyguard.

In an earlier, and saner, time, this whole sideshow would be seen as an example of “hiding behind Mommy’s skirts”; young men would be humiliated. But with this generation of ‘snowflakes’ who are shielded and coddled and humored in their strange notions, there is no shame (or honor) there.

Over these last few chaotic weeks, it seems every day brings new craziness, and I have a feeling there is still more to come.

I can’t understand why these pointless riots, chaos and mayhem for its own sake, have been allowed to go on for 50-something days. It seems no adults are in charge; these Moms are not acting like adults, but attempting to join as peers in their ‘children’s’ antics. Someone has to hold these people responsible for their actions. The “kids” are probably all old enough to be dealt with as the adults they are, and the Moms ought to be subject to penalties of law likewise. And the Moms are too old to be acting out alongside their ‘children’.

But where are the adults who are ready to take charge?

Some people liken these days of disorder to the ‘student unrest’ of the Vietnam War days, and ‘1968.’ I don’t think anything like this happened even then; unless you lived in the Big City or near a major university where the protests happened, you weren’t likely to see a spectacle such as Portland, Oregon is putting on.

Compulsory activism

The following story, by William A Jacobson, out of Cornell University is an example of something I wrote about immediately after the early BLM ‘activism’ Remember the people who were forced by ‘activists’ to kneel or genuflect, or to repeat some shibboleth? I wrote that I thought we would be entering a new phase of this conflict, in which, in order to prove our obedience or ‘loyalty’ to the regime, we would not be allowed merely ‘lip service’ but would have to actively participate in ‘actions.’

I referenced the Book of Daniel, where compulsory worship of the golden image was decreed. Everyone was required to fall down and worship the idol at the sound of the musical cue. It looks like Cornell University is following that example. It seems it isn’t enough to indoctrinate gullible college students into an all-encompassing Leftist, antiwhite worldview. No; they have to actively participate, participating in some kind of action.

This is what I said; it may eventually required of all of us. It has happened in various totalitarian systems. One had to prove one’s loyalty and commitment or be suspected of disloyalty or heresy. I suppose this is a way of weeding out those who are the undesirables.

I encounter young people online who ask how they can ‘help’ the Cause, how they can contribute money from their countries (in Europe, Australia, etc.). The young people are being conditioned to look at this movement as heroic or as a ‘freedom’ movement. Those in other countries have little clue as to what goes on in this country, and it seems that even many of our home-grown young have little idea of reality. If you have college-age children be aware of these things, and of the mental conditioning that they are experiencing.

And it is not just limited to the students and young people. It affects anybody who watches the ‘news’ media or takes in toxic pop culture.
