There are times when even the most cynical among us gets a little black pilled by what’s happening in the world. This week has been one of those times. The left-wing war on white people has gone from an indirect attack on whites, often using euphemisms, to an all-out, open call to get whitey. We now have a congressman demanding white people be registered in a government database. You can be sure someone will arrive at the idea of having us microchipped like we do with our dogs and cats.

We are in the middle of a White Fright. The same kooks, who were flooding the internet with claims of Russian election interference, are now sowing panic over a grand white conspiracy to do no one knows what. They are now competing with one another for who can conjure the most bizarre conspiracy theory. The similarities between now and the mood of France in the summer of 1789 are obvious. The Great Fear was a panic that gripped the peasantry, while the White Fright is gripping our rulers.

The depressing part of it is seeing the so-called conservatives grovel to these kooks and lunatics. Of course, Trump revealing to us once again that he has always been nothing more than a vainglorious bullshitter, who got lucky in 2016, only makes the mood much darker than it would be otherwise. If you are a white person, these are the worst of times, but life is struggle. Fair or foul, we are destined to live interesting lives and the government will be made aware of us. The Chinese scholars will get that.

The thing to keep in mind with all of this is the kooks are not working from a clever plot hatched by super-geniuses. The anti-whites are in a full panic because their handlers and leaders are in a full panic. They truly fear that they waited too long to slam the cage door shut and now it may be too late. The great vibrant future they imagined is not right around the corner. It is never going to happen. That’s what terrifies them. That’s why they are unleashing the rage heads and crackpots.

Before we get too far down the rabbit hole of despair, I would like to remind everyone where we would be right now with President Hillary Clinton. She would be preparing her re-election campaign against a Republican field consisting of Jeb!, Jon Huntsman, John Kasich, and Marco Rubio. Everything we are complaining about right now would be infinitely worse. Texas and Florida would be turned permanently blue. The Media Class would be at the pinnacle of their power with no rivals in sight. Don’t give up hope. Stick with Trump. The alternative is not worth considering. Because of Trump, the… Read more »

Trump reminds me of a hand grenade in the middle of everything. He blew up in the face of the cloud people, and he is moving Overton. But he also blew up in our faces; he supports red flag laws. Red flag laws are EUROPEAN style gun control. They are ‘the state can take your guns anytime they want.’ I used to not get the gun issue when I was stateside. Then I went to Europe, and then terror attacks w guns (Bataclan etc) and trucks (Nice etc) and just everyday muzzie shootings happened. While I had to carefully register… Read more »

I wouldn’t take his TV utterings a few days ago very seriously. There will be no Red Flag laws under Trump. Zman was right that he missed a good opportunity to zap the left, but that doesn’t mean there was a catastrophic failure. It was a draw. Keep Lefty out of your head.

Exactly. Never take Trump’s first pronouncements as doctrine; they’re always meant to flush out the enemy, not as serious statements of policy.

Also, should Federal red flag laws arise… such laws usually require that ALL reports of credible fear be taken seriously and properly investigated. Who strikes terror into my heart? my congresscritters, their armed guards, and their staffers. Goose, meet gander…

I suspect the latest shooting episode(s) will be a fading memory by Labor Day. I know it sounds cynical, but for all the “outrage” on display over such crimes, very few people really care about them. They’re just occasions for the two “teams” to score points against each other. I doubt whether most of the people pontificating this week could name even three of the individuals murdered.

I can understand why someone would want a gun for home defense, but I never got the militia-thing. Your AR-15s and your Barrett 50s are little better than pitchforks when they send in the A-10s and the AH-64s. I used to think universal conscription was the answer – have a citizen army – but that doesn’t work so well if you’re a minority.

And the more legal weapons you have, the more illegal ones you’ll get too: that gun is only legal until some burglar takes it.

Again, the concept here is not to match weapon for weapon, man against man, with a superior technological force. It is to deny the enemy control of territory and wear him and the supporting populace down. In short, to make the cost of such a conflict more expensive than it’s worth.

All of which is done quite nicely with field weapons and improvised explosives as we’ve learned in the ME and before in Vietnam.

Maybe it’s white privilege. I live in a 90% white country and I can’t see why and how a civil war could happen. Democracy was established in Denmark when some B-list actor gave a cheesy speech and the king said “M’kay. Whatever.” I could be wrong, but I don’t think a single person was killed.

The question I ask myself is ‘if guns are not important in the power equation of society, why are European authorities so stringent about registering every single one and why does the American left want to limit access to them?’

In Europe, it’s to keep them out of the hands of criminals and psychos. The homicide rate in the US is about 6 (six!) times the European average, that’s probably a hint.

We have established that the essence of guns is not the power to kill. There are many ways to kill besides guns. The salient feature of guns is the power to resist other guns. I can’t think of a time in the history of the West where it seemed a less good idea to let the government have a monopoly on this power.

Gun control in Europe is not centuries old. In the 1930s or so, you could walk around London w a revolver in your pocket, perfectly legally.

Maine has a homicide rate like Europe. As do many other states. They don’t have European gun laws though, they have European demographics.

No, I think you are wrong. Trump was the symptom, not the disease. The fact of his appearance was very fortunate, as it revealed the size and power of white disaffection.

“President Trump bought us a bit of time and maybe will soften up the enemy a bit.” True. That can seem like cold comfort and frustratingly feeble, but it isn’t nothing. Sure, we all wish he’d act more decisively against the proglodytes, but while it’s too simplistic to say time is on our side, gathering strength will take time whether we like it or not. Barring the unlikely possibility of a credible challenger from the d-right, I have to unenthusiastically support The Don.

During the Cold War, it was observed that one of the reasons why Liberals were soft on Communism was because Liberalism was Communism Lite. Communism was liberalism in a hurry. Joe Sobran responded that liberalism was Communism in slow motion.

The same is true of mainstream Conservatism Inc. It’s Liberalism Lite, the Liberalism of, say, a generation ago. They concede first principles to the Liberals and continue to lose.

Hillary quotes imaginary “African” proverb: “It takes a village to raise a child.” Well, when you think about it, a housing project (or a ghetto, for that matter) is really sort of a de facto African village. So, how is that legendary African wisdom working out? The Africans have got their villages, paid for by Whitey. How are they doing with the whole children-raised-by-the-village thing? Once it turns out that the African children are a bunch of layabouts, thugs, sluts and rape-apes, suddenly the focus shifts, and the African village is now “the streets,” a bizarre impersonal abstraction which can… Read more »

Covington cleverly (and, given the left’s accelerationism I would argue prophetically) used Hillary’s catchphrase for a government program – sometime this century – where the children of badwhites are taken by the government, on one pretext or another – and given to gays or a proper leftist family for adoption. His fiction, with the usual exceptions, is as prophetic as Camp of the Saints, at least in regards to the other side.

PETA is pretty extreme, right enough. But to be fair, here’s the conclusion of their chapter on pets:

Contrary to myth, PETA does not want to confiscate animals who are well cared for and “set them free.” What we want is for the population of dogs and cats to be reduced through spaying and neutering and for people to adopt animals (preferably two so that they can keep each other company when their human companions aren’t home) from pounds or animal shelters—never from pet shops or breeders—thereby reducing suffering in the world.

That’s reasonable enough.

Link? San Francisco is the bellwether in severing the loving relationship between men and animals. So far, they’ve been unsuccessful, except for a ban on sales of non-rescue dogs and cats in pet stores-to reduce puppy mill breeding, they say. And who’s going to argue with that? But the ban makes it more difficult to purchase a pet if you have a particular breed in mind.

The most radical activists are aiming for no pet sales, period. If they keep up their crusade against sales and breeders, eventually breeds will die out.

It’s worthwhile to click through to the twitter feed to catch the interview with hideously ugly box wine auntie activist wearing cat glasses. https://kdvr.com/2019/08/08/city-council-mayor-still-undecided-on-what-to-do-about-toms-diner-controversy/ There are six other restaurant buildings identical to his in Denver. One is within a couple miles of this one. To my eye, the building is more of an eyesore than a landmark. It is of no historical value whatsoever. The building is on East Colfax in the Capitol Hill area of Denver. This area used to be extremely seedy, but has gentrifed significantly in the past 20 years… Read more »

Put a bunch of copper nails in that tree some night, and it would soon be dead. Then it would need to be taken down.

Dig holes to expose underground roots. Cut them with chain saw. Drill holes on portion of root still connected to tree. Fill holes in root with Roundup. Fill in hole. Plant grass. Tree will be dead within six months with no visible evidence as to what caused death.

I have never done this to my a**hole neighbor’s cottonwood trees.

My problem with this segment of the podcast was that it was easy to pitch the bitch, but no mental effort was expended offering a fair or viable solution as mitigation for the community interest. That’s lazy thinking IMO and me thinks the tune would change if it was his ox being gored. If it was that damn important to the neighbors, let them organize and offer the seller a settlement that keeps him whole.

If you do not have a rifle, get one. If you have one, get another. Keep it simple. You want something common, proven and reliable. The best rifle in the world is useless if you cannot hit what you are aiming at. Get to know your local range officer(s). Ask questions. They tend to know who is who and what is what, if you follow me. Volunteer your help. Hauling range trash to the dump one day a month will make you popular with the people who matter. It’s a small price to pay to help save Western Civilization. Gun… Read more »

Learn to sight-in a rifle with a .22, save yourself a ton of $ on ammo until you get it down. Great starter rifle in general, 4x scope, small game plinking. For home defense & bigger game, 12 gauge. Handguns are sexier and more useful in certain situations, but long guns will be more “anti-fragile” to gun control hysteria so long as we’re operating in Code White Alert America.

Yeah, the .22 rifle is a good idea – we only have .22 in a few revolvers and although I’m fairly accurate with a rifle using a red dot, my right forearm gets really tired and shaky holding weight for long periods. My shoulders, bis and tris are strong individually, and I do some forearm exercises, but I’m a thru-and-thru southpaw and my right forearm is not up to snuff. I’m thinking of buying a 12 lb bodybar to practice with at the gym (my son says just to practice with the rifle at home but there’s always something else… Read more »

Remus reckons the war will be won with Ruger 10/22’s and Mossburg 500’s
good deals at bass pro this week $229 for the former and $399 for a dual barrel (shot and slug) for the latter.

If you don’t have an ugly black rifle, I suppose you should get one. However, buying more than a couple might be less optimal than getting your next rifle as a bolt action in a military caliber. I have some with bolt actions and good, non-triggering, wood stocks. Remember one well aimed shot is worth a dozen rapid fire misses—unless of course we are talking about suppressive fire and other military maneuvers. But at that point, you probably will be using your black ugly rifle. Whether yours or one you picked up in the field—through use of your good, single… Read more »

I am actually cheered by the recent gun debates. In the past, when Lefty started barking about gun control, conservatives would start trying reason and politely explain the flaws in Leftist anti-gun dogma. Then they’d politely lose like noble gentlemen when the laws were made. Recently however, that seems to have changed. When Lefty brings up gun control most conservatives reply with two words: “F*** you!” When Lefty gets mad and starts making threats, the response from the conservative base is “Bring it.” I know we aren’t supposed to incite violence and all that… but that is what Lefty is… Read more »

Defending the Second Amendment is the only successful cause that Conservatives have championed.

Even here is Blue State NJ, there is general refusal to obey the law that high-capacity magazines must be turned in.

One way to avoid the law is to send the mags to someone out of state.

Here’s an argument which I never see made in gun debates. While not in practical circumstances a winning one, Because Obvious Reasons, it has the virtue of both being true, and also having the caustic clarity of an “Aaagh! There’s acid in my eyes!!!” moment… LEFTY: The Founding Fathers, in their original intent, never imagined the kinds of dangerous “assault rifles” and heavy weaponry we now have. Therefore, anything nastier than a front-loading musket must be banned, because it was not the Original Intent. Ha ha! Checkmate, racist Originalists! NEON NAZI: The Founding Fathers also never in their wildest dreams… Read more »

If the great geniuses waging war against YT had allowed the Harpy to win in2008 they could have had Yeb until 2024 then had Obongo until 2032. They would have undramatically waltzed into victory.

Accelerationism is a gift to us. Short-term black pills are long-term white one. They force our reluctant brethren out of their stupor and fantasies while we still have the numbers. 30% is all it will take.

I really enjoy how you don’t bother to try to pronounce unpronounceable names and just say something like ‘Mahmood Whatever.’ I find it hilarious and it cracks me up every single time

What would the Reason editors write if Tom’s Dinner had a “whites only” sign in the window and “armed men in costumes” was forcing this “hard-working entrepreneur” was trying to use his property rights to control who could enter his property?
Well, this is how you know libertarians are just greedy leftists who hate paying taxes.

Ranting has temporary therapeutic value, and also the advantages of being convenient and cheap, but if it’s all you got, how valuable is it? Imagine being in a wartime foxhole with someone who can pitch a world-class bitch but can’t shoot worth a lick. All productive people have the trait of being persistent problem-solvers, and sometimes it’s worthwhile to follow a rant with a novel idea for a solution or perhaps dispense some relevant wisdom that may be applicable. If you really want to help your community, then actually offer some help.

@ thezman. You mention the rise of the authoritarian left preaching ” anti-knowledge” and demanding that everybody swallow it with a smile. Here, once again I’ll post a really great quotation from theodore dalrymple on this subject. “In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to… Read more »

That’s the reason why despite changing views on subjects, I’ve always considered myself on the right: the left lives in this make-believe world and I don’t see how they can look at themselves in the mirror. On top of that, the real reason they hate us is for not playing along in their fantasy world, and calling them out on it.

There are a million ways cops can get your DNA if they already suspect you were involved in a crime. They can follow you and get your DNA quite easily. If you chuck a cigarette or throw away a bottle or even eat or drink in a restaurant, the police can get your DNA. Even fingerprints often contain DNA. A cop who wants your DNA can get it very easily once you are a suspect. What the cops are doing with the private DNA is better called “fishing” than investigating. They come in handy when there are no suspects, but… Read more »

So if you rape some woman in another state and your sister did a DNA test from ancestry.com, they can find that relative connection. They would be able to convict you even if they never gave you a DNA test based on the fact that the sister DNA and the suspect DNA are siblings and have the same mother and father.

Yes. That’s how they got the Golden State Killer.

So even if you’re smart enough to not give Jewish businessmen your DNA and pay for the privilege too, they still have your number, if enough relatives do.

Whenever you hear “white privilege,” “white supremacy,” or “white nationalist” from the mouths of political and media types what you should be hearing is “white nigger,” with all the shadings of irrational abject hated and lack of legal protections the term implies.

If Zman wants to REMIND people that Trump isn’t Mr. Social Conservative I’m ok with that. But we need to remember that Trump got elected almost on HIS own. The R establishment was either neutral or Hostile. And since he’s gone to Washington almost NO ONE in the R party has helped him achieve his agenda. He’s a party of ONE. And he’s a NYC guy. He’s NOT a gun guy. He never pretended to be one. And he’s NOT going to bet his presidency on stopping the gun grabbers.

@thezman. you’ve discussed the continual march toward zero personal privacy. The politicians have stopped pounding the podium and demanding that the peoples constitutional rights not be infringed apon. An Anarchist mob forms outside Mitch Mcconnell’s house making death threats and not much is done about it, except Mitch Mcconnell getting ban from his twitter account. The fact is that our leaders, despite their power, wealth and influence, are just as screwed up and brainwashed as everybody else.

The argument that the property owner in Denver couldn’t sell to a chemical plant is specious. The property had been zoned for residential and shopping, an ordinary use. Claiming that the locals have a say in the sale is monstrous. You are saying that no one can plan their future because the collective has a say, after the fact. During zoning, yes. Not after.

The activists are doing evil.

Z, You’ve turned me from being a fairly committed libertarian to being incredibly skeptical and mocking of libertarianism. But your comments about the Reason Magazine article and the property owner in Denver are fairly disappointing. It’s one thing for a community to band together and say “We don’t want X property used for Y purpose because it’s harmful to the community.” It’s entirely different for a community to say, “We like that you have done P with your property so much that we want to force you to continue doing P even though you would prefer to do Q with… Read more »

The first order of business for any President since the New Deal has been to restore the Presidents control of the Executive Branch. A control that was ceded during the New Deal.
Nixon attempted this and was deposed.

Trump is attempting to do this without Civil War.

In some ways Trump is like Stalin – he builds his support and advances slowly towards his goals. That’s a good thing by the way. Trump is fighting the same people Stalin fought – it takes time.

Does anyone else hear how it’s going to go with Turkey?

Turkey says: Either let any Turkish citizen in with no hassle, or we’ll send you all these migrants.

EU says: OMG, don’t do that, we’ll give Turks VISA-free access.

Turkey issues citizenship to all the migrants, and sends them on to the EU — perfectly within the terms of the agreement.
