Arson suspects arrested

Unfortunately they will probably be let loose quickly as usual, but authorities have made arrests in connection with the ‘wildfires’ in California, Oregon, and Washington. This should undermine the official story which exonerated, in advance, members of antifa or BLM.

I have a feeling that the officials will cling to their assertion that nobody in those groups could possibly have been involved, and they will reiterate the line about how such speculation on the part of ‘right-wing extremists’ must be stopped.

But back here in the world of reality, it looks like those who have pretended to care about the environment, nature, wildlife, and ecology, were just putting up a not-very-convincing front. How can anyone with a modicum of sense believe these people ever again? Once a liar, always a liar, and the left is one big edifice of lies, that should be collapsing under the weight of it all.

Unfortunately it seems as though the left has managed to capture all the institutions that matter, so they are propped up by all their duplicitious allies and enablers.

Fires in the West: ‘coincidence’? Yes, say authorities

Wildfires in the Western states are not uncommon in the hotter, drier months of the year, even at this point in the weather cycle. But are the official, controlled media correct when they pronounce the fires to be not deliberately set?

Steve Sailer cites the New York Times’ opinion that the fires are not arson.

The fact that this is being called an “unprecedented fire season” says something; what natural cause could be to blame for all the fires? Some reports say 15 people dead so far.

Some people accept that this is due to “climate catastrophe” and thus that it’s part of “anthropogenic climate change”. In other words, we are causing it; we human beings (with the possible exception of the ‘protected groups’ who are never guilty of anything) .

Steve Sailer concludes that maybe the fires in the Portland area are the work of individual ‘firebugs’ who are driven to do that kind of thing. He ultimately says there’s not much evidence of Antifa being involved, or of any kind of organized plan to start fires on a grand scale.

The official story is that the Antifa are 100 per cent innocent of any of this; search the Internet and find dozens of stories from ‘officials’ denying the validity of the numerous accusations of Antifa activity. The official stories say all the reports are false. Full stop. End of story.

Snopes says the stories are false, and that’s supposed to be the final word, I suppose. Right. And I have heard that any such talk of Antifa being involved is being labeled ‘misinformation’ and ‘fake news’ and it will be censored in some cases as such.

It does stretch credulity just a little that all these raging fires are just coincidentally happening. In all my life, I’ve never seen this happen on this scale and with such ‘timing’.

Wrongthink will not be tolerated

Ron Unz has a long article about the immigration issue and about the political bankruptcy (his words) of “White Nationalism.” It’s over 3,000 words in all so I can hardly do it justice without thinking it through — but here are some thoughts.

My observation of what happened during the 2016 election was that, though Trump was running on the immigration question to some extent, it was just token opposition to the ‘open borders’ crisis, not a sign of deep commitment to enforcing our laws or stopping the massive flood of immigrants. Remember the massive throngs heading for our Southern ”border” daily back during those days? It was a genuine crisis.

The ‘talk’ from the media and the politicians back then was that ‘White Nationalism’ was finished but still somehow a huge threat to our safety and ‘freedom’ because WNs were Nazis and extremists. Trump himself made at least one statement that was standard boilerplate on the subject; in it he sounded no different than some of the Democrats.

“Racism is evil,” Mr. Trump said at the White House after meeting with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray. “Those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

His previous coy behavior in ‘tolerating’ those on the right (including the so-called ‘Alt-right’ which had been thoroughly demonized by the media by then) seemed calculated, and his efforts to court the black vote with the usual pandering and flattery (“wonderful, wonderful people“) and the Hispanic vote, offering the DACA plan for Hispanic young people (“wonderful, wonderful people“) diminished any favorable feelings I had.

It seemed to me that the ‘WN movement’, outsider movement though it was, was used by some politicians when expedient, but when it was decided that it had to be, in that tired phrase, ”thrown under the bus”, then it was dead politically. Unz’s article goes into the ‘reasons’ why the movement had to ‘die the death’ and be discarded and disowned by everybody who was anybody, but the ‘whys’ amounted to self-fulfilling prophecies, or ex post facto justifications for decisions that the political hacks and media pundits had ready-made.

Politicians have been known to sell their souls, metaphorically at least, for the sake of getting elected. The media, even the so-called ‘conservative’ media, are not on our side, and are prone to pursue ‘respectability.’ Who knows what the real views of these people may be; everyone in that world is cowardly or calculating, not frank and honest. They may not even know themselves, so artificial are they.

And if ‘the people’ have rejected the common-sense idea of immigration restriction, it is because they are too often soft-headed people who are taken in by their ‘hard-working’ Hispanic immigrant acquaintances, or their cool POC friends, like on TV. Many of our folk are people who have to like and be liked by everyone, and damn the costs to society. Maybe this present crisis will change that; maybe not.

So Unz and others are apparently saying that ‘the people have spoken’ by their action (or non-action), deciding that mass immigration and ethnic replacement are not so bad, in exchange for ‘Diversity’ and cultural enrichment, and after all, we’re all Americans as long as the replacements come here legally.

Over the years I wrote a few pieces about the flaws of White Nationalism — not the idea that it is ‘evil’ as Trump said; it is not. But those who wanted it to be pan-European, with ‘White’ replacing our specific ethnic identity and loyalty were mistaken, I thought. I don’t believe that European-descended people are interchangeable, or that any of us should have the right to move, say, to Eastern Europe because we think they have it better there. Maybe the Eastern Europeans might have something to say about that.

Apart from those objections, I don’t accept that WNism is ‘evil’, and I do not accept the word ‘racist’, which Trump used in describing people who believe in nationalism.

And I don’t accept weak-tea ‘Civic Nationalism’ which is the fashion of the day.

If the majority of White people hear and read nothing but race-baiting rhetoric such as that used by the controlled media and the ‘respectable’ politicians of all stripes, then of course it is no surprise that they reject all right-of-center ideas, even the sensible idea of controlling our borders. And given our present system of censorship of ideas, which is worsening, it’s unlikely that we can ever extricate ourselves from our present crisis, when those who hold power have such a tight grip on our freedom to think and discern for ourselves.

‘WNs’ were judged to be un-respectable and a liability to the pandering politicos and the ‘system’ so they were denounced and expelled into the outer darkness. Besides, being associated with people of European descent — it was just déclassé.

And yes, I know ‘Trump is the best we’re going to get‘, as people say. And that’s cold comfort.

Don’t be…

I happened to see part of this short Post-WWII Army training film. It was a ‘Q Drop’ today. I wondered what Q is trying to convey to followers here. The title is ‘Don’t Be a Sucker.’ It’s an anti-bigotry film, warning people against ranting demagogues on street corners and so on, who apparently were to be found in American cities trying to spread hate.

The film seemed a little heavy-handed to me. Actually make that very heavy-handed.

It seems as though the Q movement is attempting to keep followers on the ‘reservation’ as it were, to inoculate them, keep them from straying into full-on nationalism, which apparently they conflate with hate, antisemitism, and bigotry generally. I have noticed that Q, in his sometimes enigmatic ‘drops’ stresses — sometimes more subtly — the over-familiar ideas of multiculturalism, tolerance, inclusion, and the whole menu of civic nationalism and antiracism. Could it be that this is the actual purpose of this movement, to keep the Q faithful within safe, politically correct territory when it comes to sensitive issues like race, ethnicity, and religion?

As Vulture of Critique mentions,

“Q team is obviously trying to maintain a “big-tent” coalition, big enough to accommodate several American subcultures: mainstream gays, various Jews, blacks. For the next two months, I expect Q to write that Democrats are much more racist than Republicans.”

– Vulture of Critique blog

This approach is hardly ‘far right’; obviously it’s really only a variation on the ‘Respectable Right’, who observe all the Politically Correct conventions when it comes to these subjects.

During the last election cycle, even though Trump seemed to be courting the ‘alt-right’, eventually he denounced Nationalism, at least the White variety. I found that tactic to be a little unsettling, making me wonder what motivated it. Was Trump just hoping to escape being tainted by association with actual nationalists or other undesirables? And is this ‘diversity and inclusion’ phase of the Q movement an attempt to weed out any actual nationalists, lest they be infected with political incorrectness?

And Q continues to dwell on the idea of ‘Unity’ vs. ‘division’ in some of his drops. Yes, unity is or should be a good thing, and divisiveness can be fatal to any movement — but what if the components of your ‘movement’ are naturally divided, and what if there is a history of conflict that can’t be wished away by Rainbow philosophies or by heavy-handed propaganda films?

“Don’t Be a Sucker” is actually good advice, in the sense of being aware that others may want to manipulate you. Q is fond of saying ‘people are basically good; trust humanity.”

Maybe I’ve become too cynical but not all people are to be trusted blindly.

This sounds familiar

Don’t be misled by the first paragraph or so, but does the following excerpt not describe a familiar mindset?

“Bolshevism, although a new word, stands for an old thing.
To our minds, it represents theft and confiscation, slaughter and cruelty, degradation of womanhood and perversion of children.

These disorders are but symptoms of a peculiar state of mind. The same mentality was found in the Revolt of the Mercenaries in Carthage, in the Revolt of the Roman slaves under the leadership of the Gallic Vindex. It was patent in the French Revolution of 1793. It appeared in the Indian War. It was evident in the Commune of Paris in 1871 and it cannot be ignored in the most recent outbreaks in Germany.

What brings about this social unrest and strife is not a passing misfortune, or a temporary abuse, — it is the individual inability of great numbers of people to obtain, in given conditions, the realization of their aspirations.

After they have tried to reach their rightful aims and have failed, they attribute their disappointment to existing conditions rather than due to their own incapacity. Therefore discontent and hate ferment against a supposedly wrong social order, or allegedly guilty people, envy grows against more favored fellow creatures, and the diseased mind of the abnormal becomes a public danger.

Through the influence of repeated propaganda, normal people become infected by doubt and suffer from imaginary wrongs. Led astray by this delusion, which harms them, they join the ranks of the rebels, where they are paraded as testimonies of the justness of the cause.

The acts of such mentally deficient people are individual violations of law and custom, but when social parasites find in these forces of misery and waywardness a tool strong enough to overthrow or modify the social order for their personal benefit, they claim rights for abnormality and set up insanity as the standard by which the rest of humanity should be modeled.”

Fernand J.J.Merckx, The Bolshevism of Sex, 1921

The ‘spirit of Bolshevism’ described in this near-100 year old book seems to be the dominant spirit of our age — sadly for us.

The book was primarily about feminism, hence the book’s title, but it fits other similarly-motivated movements.

Facebook removes ‘Patriot Prayer’

Reuters, in its typical biased style, refers to the ‘Patriot Prayer’ group as being ‘right-wing’. Well, that’s as may be; are they betraying bias against the right, or against Christians, or against patriots?

What a wreckage has been made of our former country, when not only the right is increasingly silenced and defamed, patriots are considered ”dangerous” and Christian groups are The Enemy.

The media have played no small part in engineering this inversion of America and of all that it once stood for. And I am speaking, again, of the American People, the majority of the decent American people who once populated this country. I am not praising a political system or a government apparatus or a piece of geography. My allegiance is to the people of this country — but to those people who are engineering the demise of this nation, I hold no loyalty, much less respect.

It’s sad that so quickly after the murder of Aaron Danielson, who was a member of the Patriot Prayer group, and a fellow Christian of course, that Facebook (why is anybody still using it ?) decided to shut down the Facebook presence on that platform, and silence them?

Taking this action so soon after Aaron’s death is something of a slight to him and his memory, though he did nothing wrong.

Facebook, what are you afraid of? Why stifle all rightist voices and increasingly, also Christian presences?

If social media is going to silence and exclude all those who don’t adhere to the official religon of Diversity and One-worldism, of what use is it?

Social media as a group are something of a monopoly, and they are not simply a harmless medium for people to ‘stay in touch’ as everyone says; they need to be broken up or they need to be neutral rather than enforcers of the Official Ideology, behaving like petulant children who want to spite those who are not part of their leftist club.

I do want to wish the Patriot Prayer group all the best, and condolences for the loss of our brother in Christ, Aaron Danielson.

Partiality

I can’t help wondering why, in the case of the young man in the post below, the young man who was shot and killed — why no arrest was made? The shooter has reportedly been identified. Oh, probably it will be said that there’s no solid proof he is the perpetrator, but there is obviously a double standard here, where Kyle Rittenhouse was immediately charged, but the suspect in the Portland shooting walks around free. How can this be? Is this still America?

This has been a pattern so far in these ‘incidents’, wherein one side gets carte blanche, it seems, and it appears they can carry out these crimes with impunity. How did we arrive at this kind of corrupt arrangement, where the laws are flouted not only by the obvious bad guys, but also by people who supposedly uphold the law or enforce justice?

I need Diogenes’ lantern, but as I recall the story, Diogenes never found the sought-for honest man.
