NZ women in hijabs

So the women of Christchurch, New Zealand decided to wear Moslem dress, following the example of their lady Prime Minister, including the obligatory head-scarves. This charade was meant to show ”solidarity” with their Moslem ‘friends and neighbors. In addition the Moslem call to prayer was to be broadcast nationwide. How long before wholesale conversions begin?… Continue reading NZ women in hijabs

Suppressing facts

Following on yesterday’s post here about legal immigration (“good”) vs. illegal immigration (“less good”), I have been trying to find some statistics about criminality, comparing legal to illegal immigrants. There seems to be an effort  to show that legal immigrants do not commit more crimes than native-born, and that illegals are the only immigrants who… Continue reading Suppressing facts

Begging and choosing

True to form, the ‘migrants’ from Central America who are massing at our Southern “borders” are making the usual demands. These people are at worst, invaders and thus by definition criminals, or at best, they are beggars and chancers, with an arrogance that doesn’t befit their status. When you are trying to force your way… Continue reading Begging and choosing

The last taboo?

I was somewhat surprised to find at the Faith and Heritage blog a piece by David Carlton which dares to bring up the issue of the genetic origins of modern-day Jews. This question is one which seems to be deliberately avoided, not confronted. Why? A recent genetic study reported in the mainstream media indicates that… Continue reading The last taboo?

‘Rating’ ethnic groups

About a hundred years ago, a sociologist did a study of ten ethnic groups in America and rated their ‘relative social worth.’ This was during one of the peak periods of immigration, and nativist tendencies were very much alive then, despite the already-ongoing efforts to promote the ‘melting pot’ and the ‘all one happy family’… Continue reading ‘Rating’ ethnic groups

Secession: would it work?

Colin Woodard made the case for his vision of the United States as divided into a ”country of regions.” Woodard’s map shows his idea of the ’11 countries” or nations that make up today’s United States. I’ve expressed my skepticism about Woodard’s classification of the regions of the United States, because, among other things, it’s… Continue reading Secession: would it work?

What’s in a name?

I’m glad someone addressed this issue, though it seems to be a hopeless cause to change the politically correct terminology that dominates our language. Jmsmith at The Orthosphere blog writes about the varying names given to followers of Islam, with ‘Muslim’ being the politically correct usage employed by the media, the educational establishment, the lefties… Continue reading What’s in a name?

The ‘racism’ scare and other scares

There’s an interesting piece at TakiMag, called Skeered o’ the Racisms. The writer points out the way in which lefties/SJWs gin up a fear of this mysterious entity, ‘racism’, which is said to exist everywhere, at least everywhere White people (including White babies, according to Time magazine) exist. And just in case there isn’t enough… Continue reading The ‘racism’ scare and other scares

T.S. Eliot on tradition and community

T.S. Eliot had some relevant things to say about tradition, culture, and community, recorded in the book After Strange Gods: A Primer of Modern Heresy, which is material from lectures he gave in the 1930s. He warns against being sentimental towards the past necessarily, because any ‘living tradition’ is bound to be a mix of… Continue reading T.S. Eliot on tradition and community

Celebrating our independence

I trust you all enjoyed a pleasant Independence Day, though with each year the question “just what we are celebrating?” insistently recurs in my mind. For a lot of Americans it seems as though we are celebrating just out of habit, or just for the sake of celebrating — with the customary fireworks, barbecues, parades… Continue reading Celebrating our independence
