A Lazy Return

The show is back this week and fair warning, it is not a great show. Like a lot of people, I am now in summer mode. Last summer was cancelled by our rulers and their Chinese handlers, so I am looking forward to having summer this year. I am not a summer person, but I do like the slower pace. Here in Lagos, the masks are dropping and the bareface is running free again, so it is feeling very summery all of a sudden. Even the homicide rate has got back to normal. Past normal actually.

It has been interesting watching the struggle for normalcy. At the stores, about 60% of people still wears masks, depending upon where you go. The ghetto was hit and miss on the masks all along, but the beautiful people places were energetically compliant with the masking and distancing. That is where you see the strongest resistance to the dropping of the masks. I suspect the mask could become a piety symbol for these people, which would be a good result of the Covid panic.

The workplace is where things are getting weird already. I was on a call with a client the other day and they are still doing the work at home thing. The boss wants everyone back, but he has been getting a ton of resistance. The plan is everyone has until the fall to get back to the office. I know a couple of women who are quitting rather than go back to the office, as they like being home with the kids. They realized that extra stuff and having a career was not a good trade-off.

In my office building, I would say close to half the tenants will not renew. Some went out of business, but others figured out that they could save the rent and let their people work from home, so that is the plan. There is a lot of vacant office space in this part of the world, so commercial real estate is heading for a long recession. That is a cyclical business anyway, so it probably does not matter. A few years ago, we were the only tenant in our building for a few months.

It is easy to see why the Covidians are fighting the return to normalcy. There will be no way to do pull this stuff again after people drop the masks and go back to living relatively normal lives again. They can scream themselves hoarse about variants and new waves, but there is no going back to masks now. The fact that Florida exists has discredited this forever. The Covidians will have to find a new reason to justify tormenting the public so they can feel like heroes.

Libernuttian Lew is craving absolution from “Black Lives” again. So, one of his favorite twits, a Christian bigot named Charles Burris, is spreading antiwhite agitprop and self-loathing with more enthusiasm than usual: On Teaching The Tulsa Race Massacre https://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/on-teaching-the-tulsa-race-massacre/ In addition to pushing the standard oppression narrative, the former history teacher informs his readers that his copy of From Slavery To Freedom, a verbose victimology signed by Dr. Franklin, is “one of my most precious possessions”. The Beginning of Hell: The 1942 Lee Street Race Riot https://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/the-beginning-of-hell-the-1942-lee-street-race-riot/ Here, too, the libertarian figures out a way to construe reaction to blackness… Read more »

An anti-landlord leftist activist recently had this on his Twitter feed: “For those of us concerned with radical democracy, it is more useful to think about what would happen if two sheep and one wolf were to decide what to eat for dinner. Might makes right so organize for justice.” Dude has apparently never met a wolf or a sheep. Double servings of sheep for dinner. Also, it’s interesting to see “might makes right” adopted as a slogan of the left. I guess it fits in with “When I am weaker than you, I ask you for freedom because that… Read more »

Z Man, you got the Tulsa numbers exactly backwards. In the initial shootout, 12 whites and two blacks were killed. The total number of during the entire event is variously cited as 36 or 39, with 13 whites killed and the rest black. In other words, in the initial shootout the blacks “won,” but at a significant cost in the end.

Funny that you bring up Asness. Yep, he’s a billionaire hedge fund/mutual fund guy. He’s also one of the usual suspects, though like so many of them, he watered down the gene pool by marrying a goy. He’s also a libertarian who hates Trump, as you would assume. However, he’s part of a recent tiff within the Never Trump camp, which is interesting. Some writer named Tim Miller at the Bulwark – yes, that joke – argues that hating Trump – like Asness does – isn’t enough.

The first conservative book I bought was in college in early 90’s.
Charles Syke’s “The Hollow Men”, about Leftist agenda in academia. Just for reasons of nostalgia, it’s a bummer he turned out to be a typical status-seeking Never-Trumper Neocon. However it does equate with my pet belief to never trust a Conservative who looks like a Midwestern preacher.

Good points about Con, Inc., and its imminent demise. The crickets were a particularly inspired touch when you referenced the National Review.

The Republican Party, much like Con, Inc., is circling the drain and the sooner we kill off the controlled opposition the better. Actually it seems to be doing the job for us.

Great show Z-Man, not lazy at all. I would amplify your observation that elites cycle through ala Pareto. And what we are seeing now with anti-White hatred is the replacement of the old White elites (Pelosi, Schumer, Biden) with newer, non-White elites filled with anti-White hatred: AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Roxanne Gray, etc. This is why we are moving rapidly to a situation where Whites are going to be hunted down and killed in “safe” areas like the suburbs and eventually forced labor camps will be constructed.

Non-White “America” would be cool with genocide but cannot pull it off, even with the pussy hat-wearing harpies at their side. This nation’s implosion is not without a certain black, no pun or low IQ reference intended, humor. The current junta hasn’t been in office a full six months and already is a joke internationally and among Heritage Americans. I’m actually feeling pretty good at the moment for our people, who like drunks had to hit rock bottom first.

In the 1960s, blacks did not have anywhere near the strong “Black” identity they have today. They were greatly embarrassed by figures like Malcolm-X and the Nation of Islam. Blacks greatly wanted to be “Americans” first and black secondarily if at all. There are many clips of blacks on the street being interviewed in the 60s saying they are Americans and not “Black Americans” Even the term African American had a lot of push-back. I can remember as a young person using the term around black people out of respect and having them tell me “I’m BLACK. I ain’t African”… Read more »

The whole blackness movement began in the late 60s. There were Black Power and Afrocentrism, and things have gotten exponentially worse since then. Interestingly enough, black culture has deteriorated dramatically as blacks have reverted to their innate Africanness, and dispensed with all white standards of merit and achievement. Prior to the late 60s, America was held together only under the pressure of white civilization. As that civilization was undermined, every sort of latent fissiparous and savage force was unleased. The results were terminal.

adj. Tending to break up into parts or break away from a main body; factious.
Reproducing or multiplying by fission or spontaneous self-division, a mode of asexual generation by division into two or more parts, each of which, when completely separated, becomes a new individual: it is a usual process among the protozoans, protophytes, and other low organisms.

Encouraging hatred of white people through oppression narratives is extremely dangerous. They are very race-conscious and now they see us as the oppressor. Killing your oppressor is not bad. “Is it even violence if it is in self-defense?” The whole purpose of an oppression narrative is to justify violence against the people being labeled as oppressors. It is that much worse when the people are so race conscious. “These people are oppressing and killing my people!” That is why I said encouraging these people to hate us is evil.

Tribal warfare always focuses on the kids, who get exterminated because they are the future of the enemy tribe and they are defenseless.

Encouraging hatred against white people (or against black people) is evil. Well, I, too, have lived near “Black Lives”, almost entirely in the Midwest. In fact, when I was very young, I had several who were friends, and sometimes we’d hang out at one of their homes to watch TV or play horse in the backyard. That was before any of us got to high school. Now, when I encounter subsaharans in the USA, they usually remind me that… (1) virtually all of them have brown skin, not black skin like a gorilla; (2) black is not a color but… Read more »

WTF is an “expert in Democracy,” let alone “our democracy?” How do you get into this club?

The reason they always trot out “experts” to spread a faslse narrative and to justify doing what they already wanted to do is because “expert” doesn’t mean anything. What made the psychiatrists vulnerable to the Goldwater Rule is that there is a body that grants to you the legal authority to call yourself a psychiatrist. There is no body to bestow expertise onto the expert who can then waive around the credential, but can also be smacked down by the granting body.

Whites is her last name, and I’m sure her ancestral name was Weiss or Witz.

So, the dissertation was a micro-study, huh? Those can be interesting, and if linked with other micro-studies on a similar topic, quite significant.

The only thing I ever read from Whites was a paper she wrote. As I recall, it was well written, and when a grad student complimented her on her prose, she looked rather disgruntled. Complimenting a pomo’s writing is a grave insult.

mRNA technology is extremely dangerous and not well understood at all. in lab experiments with mice, they all died when re-infected by the test disease. the mRNA treatment made the second infection much more vicious in the reaction it elicited. the death toll from all these little mengeles is going to be enormous over the coming years. and the truly funny part is that 81% of westerners already have natural cross-immunization protection against covid!

Perhaps even worse. At least one virologist argues that the mRNA weakens the “innate” immune system by creating an immediate storm of antibodies that attempt to overwhelm the virus. The innate immune system is the first on the scene for any foreign substance found in the body in normal day to day life. It is thought that this is why up to 50% of the population is naturally “immune” to the COVID virus, displaying little to no physical symptoms when they contract it. I suspect that’s the category I fell into when I contracted COVID a few months ago. Basically,… Read more »

I don’t have any faith that sanity will begin to reign because Florida exists. There was so little pushback to the last year plus of Covid craziness, I can’t help but think the fun is just getting started. Remember climate change? If mother Gaia is not appeased because St. Greta does not give her a good report on our compliance how will we survive? Lockdowns are a great way to offer sacrifice to Gaia.

Yes, the state of Oregon, aka Governor “l’état, c’est moi” Kate Brown has mandated that businesses require proof of vaccination now.

Yes, the ongoing mostly peaceful partition is one of the biggest of the green shoots. The White Left almost is as dismal as running governments as Blacks (D.C. is run by both, which accounts for much of its shittyness). Z inspired me to look at NR, which I seldom do any longer, and there was some rant against counties breaking off from states. The subtext, of course, is what this portends for the dying Empire’s husk.

Nah, it’s a real mindset, and at least up until recently, mostly a boomer thing. “They can see what’ll happens if they go after my guns!” and similar were common refrains.

As the caustic assaults against American liberties continued unabated, they made 2A their fortress while neglecting all the other liberties traditionally taken for granted.

I am quietly yet firmly refraining from participating in the mass experiments collectively and erroneously known as “vaccines”. Most of my relatives and acquaintances have submitted and when queried, which is not often, I calmly state that I haven’t gotten any shots but I don’t engage in argument. I think the whole urgency of getting injected with a mystery soup of chemicals will pass, and someday not too far off, many people will be more embarrassed than proud of eagerly lining up for the shots. I only hope for their sakes that embarrassment is the worst they will suffer.
