Clown Country

John Derbyshire often says that his home country is lost. That it is far past the point of reforming itself and becoming anything like its original self. That’s probably true, but not because it has imported a Muslim ruling class. If the Brits shut off that spigot today, they remain no worse than 80% white, assuming current fertility rates. If they could muster a little national pride, they could easily get back to 90% and relegate the Muslim hordes to a despised minority status, something like the Irish travelers or the Welsh.

That’s not going to happen without a revolution, one that results in the wiping out of the British ruling class. The public is clearly turning against the lunacy of the prevailing orthodoxy, but they are saddled with a generation of lunatics, who remain firmly in charge of the institutions. The whole Tommy Robinson affair makes the point. In a country with a sane ruling elite, there would be no need to a Tommy Robinson and his situation would never happen. But, the British ruling class is full of crazy people worried about nonsense.

Too few women and people from ethnic minority groups cycle in London and more must be done to promote diversity among a largely white, male and middle class biking community, the city’s walking and cycling commissioner has said.

Grand schemes, such as the Cycle Superhighway network of partially-segregated routes linking the suburbs with the centre, are too often perceived as simply a way of getting “middle-aged men cycling faster around the city”, Will Norman acknowledged.

He said he was considering setting diversity targets for London’s cycling population to ensure progress was achieved.

Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups account for about 15 per cent of the city’s cycle trips – around two-thirds less than Transport for London estimates it could be.

Speaking to The Independent, Mr Norman, whose job it is to deliver on Sadiq Khan’s pledge to make walking and cycling safer and easier in the capital, said: “There is a problem with cycling and the way it is perceived of getting middle-aged men cycling faster around the city, which is not the objective at all.

“It touches on something which is a real challenge for London cycling, which is diversity.”

For starters, in a real country, there is no such thing as a “walking and cycling commissioner.” That’s a job for a retired volunteer at a charity 5K. That’s not a job that should ever exist and it is not a job that a fully grown adult would ever accept. The city’s dog catcher has a more respectable title. More important, this simpleton is yammering on about diversity as the native population is being chased off by hordes of savages that have no business in Europe. In a serious country, he would have been shot by now.

This is the heart of the matter. The Pax Americana, which has guaranteed peace in Europe for the last 75 years, has done more than pacify the continent. It has turned the political classes of Europe into children. They are not real leaders in any meaningful sense, because no matter what they do, Uncle Sam is there to make sure they never get a serious boo-boo. Because they are insulated from serious consequences, they have become the Eloi, playing dress-up and pretending to be big boys and girls.

This is why the Brexit negotiations have come to a halt. The renegotiating of Britain’s economic relationship with the Continent is difficult and complicated. No one on either side of the table is capable of doing anything other than showing up at a candlelight vigil following the latest Muslim attack. These are not serious people. Instead, they are silly people who worry about diversity on the bike path. The only way Brexit gets finalized is if Trump decides to get involved and forces the issue. Otherwise, it never happens.

The clownishness does not stop at the political class. The vaunted British security apparatus has also degraded into play-land. It’s obvious now that they were roped into helping that old fool John Brennan’s scheme to spy on the Trump campaign. There was a time when the Brits would have seen that for what it was and not got involved. Instead, they put on daddy’s old suits and played James Bond, causing a serious riff between the two countries. Notice Trump’s treatment of Theresa May versus Emmanuel Macron.

In a better age, when the king realized the court he inherited was not up for the job, he would get a new court. On the other hand, when it was clear the new king was dangerously feeble-minded, the king fell off his horse and they got a new king. In this age, when the people realize their rulers are supercilious poseurs, incapable of doing the basics of government, they are supposed to vote for new rulers. The trouble is, this is not a political problem. It is a cultural problem. Britain is ruled by a clown culture now.

There’s only one way to fix that.

One other point: this is an almost perfect example of the modern progressive push toward “diversity,” and what it illustrates is, once again, that progressives lie in the most spectacular fashion imaginable. What they really mean by “diversity” is simply that everyone, no matter his origin, race, sex, shoe size, is to be assimilated. Everyone must think, speak, and act alike. Why else should anyone care whether or not blacks or women ride bicycles enough? Why else have a “commissioner” for something as trivial as this? Whenever you hear calls for “diversity,” just be aware that progressives are social and… Read more »

Some groups will be noticed to be physically lazy, uncultured, or dumb, if they’re not doing exactly what others are doing. Can’t have differences sprouting up.

I don’t see any pressure on foreigners to assimilate. Whites are simply expected to adjust to the differences in those around them. The fact that nobody on their street speaks English any more is “vibrant.”

They talk about more minorities biking, but the only actions they will ever take in that direction will, mark my words, express themselves as inconveniences to or costs to White people.

“Assimilation” is a dirty word to Leftists. Assimilation is People of Color adopting white attitudes and behaviors. It is the opposite of multiculturalism, where all groups retain their distinctive attitudes and behaviors, while respecting and honoring each other.

With regard to cycling, it’s my experience that white hipsters cycle is because it’s green and anti-capitalist (auto and oil companies). Blacks cycle when they have no better mode of transport.

While the British government frets about the lack of minority bikers, would it be okay for a white British citizen to make that observation publicly? I don’t think it would, if he said it as an example of how different the immigrants are from the native population.

In an earlier essay you talked about how boring it must have been to govern a western European country a few decades ago. If everyone in the country was English or Dutch, how do you beat them over the head to be “diverse” and “multicultural”?

So they had to import a massive underclass of Third World rejects.

Unfortunately, we have too many children pretending to be adults here in the U.S. as well. I remember turning on the TV some years ago (back when I had TV service) and watching with dismay an Obama whitehouse spokesperson make a statement to the media. She sounded sophomoric. She sounded like a first year college student making her first presentation to class. It was actually painful to watch.

I never watched another press statement from the obama administration again. I moved and binned my TV service before the ’16 election.

The thing about Obama is that he never really “did” anything prior to running for congress in Illinois. He had a very thin resume, and that’s putting it charitably. Of course he was way out of his depth as POTUS.

One attractive feature of Trump on the campaign trail, was that he was the only one who consistently spoke to us as if we were functioning adults. The condescending third grade scolding and pats on the head from Obama/Hillary (and from the rest of the candidates, too, for the most part) were insulting.

Zman pointed out that the Cloud People despise us, the Dirt People, and hate the Deplorables. They regard us as zoo animals. I prefer the analogy that we are livestock to be cared for as long as we are useful. Much of what motivates the welfare state is the elitist view that the common people are too stupid and feckless to look after themselves. Well, they – we – did throughout most of history. It seems to me that people have grown more stupid and feckless as the welfare state has grown and they are relieved of personally taking responsibility… Read more »

One great moment came in the third debate with Trump, when Hillary started talking in her scolding schoolmarm way, how police need to undergo training to correct their unconscious bias in dealing with minorities. I thought, “keep going Hillary, keep telling us how racist we are in your grating, condescending manner.”

I legitimately feel bad for not knowing what the “…one way to fix that” is. I am in suspense. That last sentence breaks your normal paragraph structure further increasing my angst.

Some possible solutions:

1) shoot the clowns.
2) stop “protecting” them with US defense spending.
3) #freeTommy
4) play Hearts of Iron, win Battle of Britain, do operation Sea Lion.

I’m at a loss.

They won’t leave voluntarily. We can vote, but it won’t matter. See all those black-robed tyrants who tell us all that what POTUS #1 started with an executive order can not be ended by POTUS #2 with an executive order.

They have removed all the regular process options of changing policy, direction of the ship of state, etc. and leave us only “irregular process options” to effect change.

The elites always do that – seal off all avenues of reform. Why? Because they are better than us and are much smarter and informed as well.

And when do people like that take advice from “dirt people”? Never. They look at some angry steel worker or engineer who is losing their job to globalization and think, ‘that’s progress’. The same with the flooding of the West with 3rd worlder savages.

So it leaves us to implement option #1.

At this point Uncle Sugar can’t do much for them. They’ll either figure out how to fight it out for themselves or they won’t. Certainly the Poles and Hungarians have figured it out. But those miscellaneous Slavs never had the softness of the Pax Americana…they had the Soviet fist.

The Mongol/Islamic Golden Horde lorded it over Eastern Europe for 900 years…

What astonishes me, though, are the deplorables. European society cast out it’s rubbish- orphans, convicts, the dregs of it’s slums- and wherever they landed, these slaves built a high civilization within a hundred years. Four generations to do something the natives could not in 10,000.

Well, in the early days it wasn’t like you bought a discount ticket to howling wilderness on Virgin Atlantic. Own family got here between 1629 and 1700…and just surviving the trip over and the first few years probably weeded out the lower end of the gene pool. Think that’s how you produced two Continental Congresses and a Constitutional convention out of the equivalent population of southern Wisconsin.

Revolution is the only option that is left. Voting doesn’t work. I think we’ve all seen what happened in Italy. Trump with an anomaly that won’t be allowed to happen again. So now it’s just waiting for enough people to get extremely uncomfortable. I’m not looking forward to it. I’m still extremely comfortable.

Moldbug was right that modern liberalism is essentially an American thought virus that became an invasive species in other lands (including Europe), where, unlike in its homeland, it has no natural resistance to keep it in check. In America, for every Jefferson, Susan B. Anthony, and Barack Obama, there has been a Madison, a Mencken, and a Donald Trump. Yes, America has slid leftward for a hundred years, but at least here there has been *some* real resistance to it, whereas the western Europeans have succumbed to it like the Aztecs succumbing to smallpox (and for the same reason).

Goodwhites are implicitly white supremacist in a way that race realists are not. How is the Sierra Club fretting about the “Unbearable Whiteness of Hiking and How to Solve It” any different from whites in the 19th century trying to turn Africans or Amerindians into whites? The underlying assumption is that non-whites would like what goodwhites like if non-whites were not oppressed. Isn’t it possible that Hispanics, for example, simply don’t like state parks? Assuming that non-whites must want to be like goodwhites is white supremacist.

Race realists can accept the observation that Sun People (Derb’s term) don’t like national or state parks, or things like hiking and skiing, etc. Goodwhites can’t accept it. For them, there has to be a reason and the reason cannot be that they simply have different likes and preferences, and it’s certainly not anything having to do with how their brains work. The solution to this “problem” has to be ferreted out, and somehow whitey has to be at fault.

Thanks to Tyler Cowen and his brilliant meta-econo-historical analysis, I now see that Ethiopia and China are really the same (more or less), and that Ethiopia – and by implication all the rest of Africa – is poised to transform itself into a real-life Wakanda. And just think, all they needed was a little nudge from western globo-managerial-class experts like Tyler Cowen for this miracle to occur. These visionary people really are as special as they think they are.

Speaking to The Independent, Mr Norman, whose job it is to deliver on Sadiq Khan’s pledge to make walking and cycling safer and easier in the capital, said: “There is a problem with cycling and the way it is perceived of getting middle-aged men cycling faster around the city, which is not the objective at all. This is such an insane paragraph. While there’s nothing wrong with “safer and easier” one presumes that a lot of people cycle for very utilitarian reasons and thus “faster” is also important to quite a lot of people.

The REAL problem is instead the UK “Law Enforcement”, who will do WHATEVER they are told, as long as that paycheck keeps comin’ in. Their perfidy was apparent when they enabled the murder of Alfie Evans. Tommy Robinson is merely icing on that same cake. Eliminating any of the “leaders” in the UK will get you nothing. They are all totally replaceable by any random person off the streets of London. On the other hand, if UK “Law Enforcement” and their spouses were to start dying, that would tend to realign the dinner conversations about the appropriateness of a career… Read more »

If you’re talking about Management, with regards to Rove Republicans in law Enforcement, you are spot on. The rank and file are the polar opposite.

Police handle hundreds of thousands of calls for service, and the few instances of police brutality, stupidity, and incompetence colors us all.
