Serena, Ingrid, and the Story of My Time

The August, 2017 issue of Vanity Fair magazine has the naked and very pregnant tennis star Serena Williams on the cover.   When I saw it, a thought flashed to my mind: “Ingrid Bergman wasn’t naked on the cover of Life in Dad’s shop.”   I’ll explain.

My dad was a barber in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota.   This was back around 1950; I was a little kid.   Dad’s shop—Walt’s Barber Shop—had magazines on a small table for his customers to read while they were waiting for their haircuts.  Among them was Life, a popular magazine like Vanity Fair is today, lots of photographs, news of the day, profiles.  The Paramount movie theater next door gave Dad free passes to its movies for having a sign in his shop advertising the current feature.  Mother, Dad, and I used to go to the movie that was showing at the Paramount just about every week.

One early evening when we went to the Paramount to go to the movie, there were eight or ten people with picket signs marching back and forth in front of the theater—don’t go to this movie.   I didn’t catch on to the details, but I knew it had to do with the actress Ingrid Bergman, who was starring in the movie and very big at the time—Casablanca, etc.—doing something really bad.   What it was, I later found out, was she had had an illegitimate child with the film director Roberto Rossellini; both of them were married to other people at the time.  The outrage over that had led people to picket her movies.   It was a major scandal.  She was denounced on the floor of the U.S. Senate no less—“moral turpitude” and so on (see Marlow Stern, “When Congress Slut-Shamed Ingrid Bergman”).

Flash forward from the beginning of my life to now, near its end, and there’s unmarried, unclothed, and sort of overwhelmingly pregnant Serena Williams—the father, Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit—on the cover of Vanity Fair. No way, adultery a part of it or not, that Ingrid Bergman would have been naked and pregnant with Roberto Rossellini’s child on the cover of one of Dad’s Life magazines. 

The cover article in Vanity Fair by Buzz Bissinger doesn’t condemn Serena, just the opposite, and illegitimacy never comes up.   Its beginning gives a sense of the direction it takes:

This is a love story.

It wasn’t seamless, starry eyes at first light.  There was a discovery, unexpected and shocking.   There were moments of really getting pissed and the standard irritation that comes when one half of the whole kept leaving the suitcase in the hallway.  But there were also moments of unplanned intimacy that is the only true kind of intimacy in a love story, soft touches and laughter and absurdity, because you need absurdity in a love story, since love is slightly absurd anyway, a feeling that, like eternity, is indefinable.

I’ve checked into it, and that’s certainly not how they wrote about Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini (including using words like “pissed” and writing under names like “Buzz”),

Also, the author of a Life magazine article back then would have kept his sexual preferences to himself, unlike Buzz Bissinger, who has made known to all his cross dressing (“the right foundation and cheek blush and eyeliner and lipstick can do wonders for the pallid complexion”) and his encounters with a dominatrix (leather is “irresistible,” as are “extreme feelings of restraint and taking pain”).

And it should be noted that if there had been a racial element to the Ingrid Bergman affair (Williams is black, Ohanian white), it would have been front and center in the Life magazine article, with the word “miscegenation” in there somewhere.  Race is never mentioned in Vanity Fair.

What am I left with?  That a naked, pregnant Ingrid Bergman on the cover of Life magazine along with a fawning cover article about her wasn’t in my dad’s barber shop, and now would be, sums up the progress, regression, however you want to look at it, that’s taken place over the span of my life.  And that how that happened is the big story of my time on earth.

    I enjoyed this. I told my 70 year old father a couple of years ago that at least he witnessed a civilization; its harder to say if that’s a source of consolation.

    It’s incredible to think not only that the essence of something at this scale that was there just a couple of generations ago has basically vanished, but that this degeneration was fairly undetected (as far as I can tell, maybe someone can correct me). I remember how flustered and embarrassed my grandmother was while we watched a scene from the (forgettable) film called The Rookie on HBO in 1991 or so when Clint Eastwood’s character said “f*%@” to a reporter about 10 times, saying she had never heard Clint use language like that before. Of course, this was years and years after the cultural revolution. Reflecting on the kind of things that passes for entertainment a few more years still – like, say, the mind-numbing, hyper-degenerate “comedy” We’re the Millers – it’s incredible that the whole thing, the whole edifice pretending to be a civilization, is still standing.

      @ Tim, that is what i tell older people that they are lucky to have seen America and the world before it went down the path to hell like we are in now. I guess there has always been sin and crime, but only now thanks to the Jews and liberals these sins, mental disorders like sexual deviancy and negresses as ‘beauties’ are tolerated.
      I would laugh when people would say that Michelle Obama was a beauty.

    Where to begin? This article triggered me. Probably because the narration is so honest and middle American. Roger Devlin refers to this as libido dominandi. You can control a population by controlling their libido. Is it a deliberate plan of the Elites? It can’t be proven. No matter. Articles like this help me assemble the pieces of the puzzle. Trump was elected and all the talk was how out of touch our Elites are with the common folk. Doesn’t this photo capture that gulf? Well, that’s all I will say.

      “Roger Devlin refers to this …”

      You seem to have confused several things. The writer you’re thinking of (or should be thinking of) is E. Michael Jones, not Devlin, with specific reference to Jones’s book Libido Dominandi: Sexual Liberation and Political Control. This book has been the subject of frequent mention and discussion at TOO and TOQ for a decade.

      As for “libido dominandi,” its association with “control[ling] a population by controlling their libido” is an extended or metonymic one. The phrase is sourced from book 1 of Augustine’s City of God, where it means “lust for power” (or for “domination,” “mastery,” “rule,” “control,” or a similar term).”* The ubiquitous modern sense of the word “libido”—”the sexual appetite” simply understood (i.e., freed of any taint of moral or rational or psychological immoderacy)—is a (((Freudian))) invention.

      Jones’s point—it is by no means Jones’s alone, of course—is that (((our masters))), to the applause of those who walk obediently behind them, including far too many conformist and cowardly white people, have redefined sexual restraint as sexual oppression in order to distract their objects of control (us, alas) from their concomitant redefining of long-standing political and associationial freedoms as vices. Indeed, what used to be called our First Amendment freedoms are now virtually the only concepts that are ever described as vices! Put otherwise, they have become hate crimes.

      The lesson one should take from Jones differs from but is related to the lesson of Augustine and Cicero and Aristotle: human passion ungoverned by reason and morality, sexual passion a fortiori, leads ineluctably to slavery. Today that slavery may still be somewhat more figurative than actual, but the proportion might easily be reversed in as little as a decade. The gulag is on the horizon, and when it’s upon us, don’t count on being permitted to keep your HBO subscription.
      ______________________
      *This is also precisely what it meant to Cicero and other writers of Classical Latin. To them “libido” signified uncontrolled, immoderate desire or passion, passion unrestrained by reason or principle—lust obviously being the standout example in that category. Cicero called smutty paintings and sculptures “libidines.”

    I’ve always had a thing for Bergman; she’s just so… feminine, in a good way. My daughter and I still watch any Bergman movies classics. Her characters still inspire at least one 10 year old girl.
    For me, born in 1984, the dissonance between Madonna’s protested covers, say, and these current ones is even more overwhelming; it’s kind of hard to think about. I remember watching Oprah with my Mom and the ‘scandals’ of the day! It forged a certain morality compass about culture; one that made Bruce Jenner’s ‘absolutely gorgeous’ expose feel very weird and fake. The constant parade of shaming white Hollywood starlets even last decade seems very cruel in light of today’s moral relativity, not that that stops that particular industry.
    And it’s hard to argue with the Williams’ cover; women’s beauty, feminism, empowerment, all that… it’s been hammered in so hard that the cover to me seems a tacky excercise in editorial ‘blackety blackest black blackedness’+ pregnancy / nude… it’s everywhere. I don’t find another single, very pregnant black woman attractive, but of course I’m not allowed to think that… it’s a ‘thought crime’ to those with my birthyear.
    It’s interesting this comparison you have between the two covers; it really makes one think of the changes in, what is it, ‘society’?, that have taken place in 25-30 years, or in your case so much more in just double that. I don’t think there’s a precedent for it, and the fact that it’s all a bit much for many of us makes it seem forced and destructive.

        Yes! I couldn’t remember where, or the exact quote, but you did! The Williams’ cover reminded me right of it! So arrogant and unimaginative.
        The cover looks like a painting to me; commenter above is right…nothing is certain about pictures these days.
        I do think, from my years in college (my only time around black folks, in the city) that female blacks, if they aren’t at either extreme of the education/socio-ec/fem scale, are a step up from their male peers. Working black women often seem, although always pissed off looking, to be quite competent and reasonable.
        My wife watches this silly show, Married at First Sight, as a guilty pleasure. It’s so bogus it’s funny. Anyway, there’s been three couples every season, one black, two white. The black couple is always a bright, talented, values-driven, competent woman who wants to settle down, mid-late-twenties. Her match, inevitably the best they could get, is a total ‘player’ type, pretending to be religious, values guy, but just goes out ho-ing every night and being a selfish ass that ‘don’t wanna be chained down’ in the end. I keep thinking they need to match the black women up with white guys, who inevitably fail the attraction/ success/ perfection paradigm the white women want. On the show, anyways, seems like a better fit. Just a ramble, sorry :). It’s like, 2am and I couldn’t sleep, so…
        “Good ‘ole Days” seems to me to always harken back to a time of order and reason, accepted truths, homogenous social / economic groupings in respective regions, doesn’t it? I think those are valuable things to have.

    You think we have reached a low now. Wait until they legalize the marriage of robot and human. An occurrence that will diminish even further any concept of human responsibility, racial kinship or value on monogamy. You have seen nothing yet.

    It all comes back to the culture, which today is dictated by the media.

    Juxtapose the way the young of the 40s would socially interact- going out dancing simply to enjoy others company, have fun, with no expectations or desire for sex. Fast forward to today and you can’t even just dance or chat with the opposite gender unless they find you sexually attractive- lost is the concept of just having a good time or fun or the realization that people are more than just their erotic capital.

    You just need to look at the devastating affects of the Jewish owned media complex on Western society. You have 143 incidents of sexual behaviour shown on TV every week- about one every hour. 13% of all US adolescents between the ages of 13 and 19 become infected with sexually transmitted infections each year. Representing 3 million cases, 25% of all new US cases reported annually. Yet somehow you think the same Whites who allow the future of their society to be exposed to such damage without even questioning it, are capable of looking after their own ethnic interests. Or thinking beyond their own immediate life experience or lifetimes. How can a people who willingly attack their own society and peoples via Jewish originated ideas, like an autoimmune disease, possibly be candidates for evolutionary survival?!

    What happens when virtual pornography is replaced by real sex robots that look and act like compliant people? It will be the anything goes liberal hyper individualistic White societies who will adopt this technology first, especially as only White societies have the per capita income to afford such things. There will come a time when marrying robots is normal in White societies.

    And guess who will be there behind the scenes pushing this agenda all the way…in fact they are already doing it now. How are you going to reverse that trend and preserve historical White social norms with reason alone? I can’t see how it is possible when Whites are such a numerically insignificant disempowered minority globally and domestically now.

    You need to think what White societies are going to be like 1,000 years into the future and take the microscope off our historical past for a moment. Take a page out of the Jews book. The theory is a Jewish intellectual creation. Refer to ‘Love and Sex with Robots’ by Levy. Culture has been effectively used by this dominant minority to sterilize a people without them even knowing it.

    You are never going to change that outcome in a free society. We can debate using reason for all the days and all the nights long, it still doesn’t change the fact that the most visited websites on the internet are all pornographic whose content is generated by Jews. I just don’t see how anyone can put White society back together. Robot love interests, a fitting conclusion to the Jewish monopolization on the virtual space.

    Name one society who is immune to Jews? You’re talking about a peoples who contributed to the demise of civilizations once thought indestructible, from the Tsars, to the Sons of Heaven; conquered by the pen and pay check.

    If an ethno nationalist state the size of Imperial China, that always maintained it’s own autonomy, could be defeated by a handful of wealthy Jews propping up Mao and the Jewish intellectual creation of Communism – a feat not even the combined military power of the West could achieve, then I think you have to reassess whether you’re engaging in a form of White altruism yourself by even entertaining the idea Whites can save themselves.

    Modern Chinese society is practically built on a Jewish intellectual fabric, despite it’s previous 2,000 years of continuous indigenous culture. Now that China is becoming such a global influencer, how do you think that bodes for Jewish evolutionary survival? China is transitioning from a thousands year old savings based economy to a Jewish usury based economy as we speak. Jews are some of the biggest investors in the Chinese economy. The classless ethos of Communist thought that pervades the Chinese psyche means conditions are ripe for upward mobility by outsiders, and now that China is engaged in Africa, nothing can stop a multicultural Afro-Sino reality from materializing once Africans start immigrating to China for opportunities in the worlds largest economy. In fact it is already happening, African only enclaves on the Chinese mainland are appearing.

    If a country of a billion people in a homogenous ethno-state can’t escape Jewish control, how do you expect your 20,000 twitter followers existing in balkanized America where every government apparatus is hostile towards them, to have any hope at escaping and creating an ethno-nationalist White culture anywhere? Control mechanisms to ensure Jewish evolutionary survival dominate every modern society.

    You’re dealing with a peoples who have outlasted most historical civilizations and as a consequence are unphased by civilizational collapse. A peoples who describe themselves as ‘the invisible people’ because they are masters at colonizing a parent culture without the host even knowing it. Who see our society as just another short lived civilization on the verge of being a historical relic. Merely one, out of the hundreds, they have come into contact with over the last 33 centuries. And they have every intention of outliving us.

    A peoples whose intellectual influence on power structures could possibly date back as far as Akhenaten. A peoples who wrote the Bible and influenced Western history on a scale we can not comprehend. A peoples who had reached every corner of the known world before Whites expanded it. And even then they were at the forefront of that discovery, with representatives escaping the Spanish inquisition, who travelled to the Americas along with the desperados and witnessed the destruction of the New World civilizations at the hands of the Spanish. These people’s forbearers have walked the capitals of every major Empire to exist.

    You’re dealing with a peoples that transcend the very concept of civilization itself. Who are immune to outside cultural influence. How do you even defeat that? You’re naïve if you think you can achieve a different outcome, where all those before you have failed. You only get a platform because they let you have one. Because when they are thriving a bit of antisemitisim is in the best interests of their evolutionary survival. These people don’t have limits, they constantly test weaknesses until they prevail. These people are comfortable on the edge, close to danger, Elephantine island demonstrates that. No challenge is too large for them. And these people never forget past perceived wrongs committed against them, and always successfully seek out revenge.

    Greater Israel is a reality. We are living in the age of the world Jewish Empire.

    You can’t escape the Jew.

        It all begins and ends in your mind.

        What you give power to, has power over you.

        If you allow it. The problem is Whites are never going to rise up against the Jews because WWII created the situation where Whites define themselves via a victory over their own ethnic interests.

        I’m not Jewish. I am Anglo Celtic or ‘White’. I have simply been doing a lot of research on Jews after becoming aware something wasn’t right in our society when I constantly heard derogatory references to White men, and only White men, coming out of the media.

        I then discovered who owns 90% of the media outlets and the Jewish intellectual origins behind the cultural upheavals in the West. I then re-examined WWII and discovered what really went on. I then found CofC and this place after a long stint at dead end false flag so called WN forums that are all Jew created and controlled.

        I am not saying we should roll over. But I don’t see any political solution to the Jewish question as long as Whites continue to inhabit our current societies. And if one looks at Americas current predicament, I see the only solution being a group of ethnic aware Whites pooling their resources to buy an island in the pacific, purchase land for food security in Australia, and acquire the military hardware ( Nuclear submarine ICBM weapons systems) necessary to ensure no state would be suicidal enough to dare invade.

        Whites don’t have a future in any of the so called ‘White’ Western countries as long as they are competing with other ethnic groups, as Whites simply don’t have the evolutionary adaptations to co-exist with other races and not be taken advantage of.

        Whites will have to start their own civilization and have complete control of the culture, removing all semitic elements starting with Christianity which was hoisted upon us during Roman colonization. National Socialist Germany was attempting to do this before it was derailed.

        Whites need to create a wholly indigenous culture of their own, created by them, something they have never experienced due to Roman conquest and explains all the problems in current White society.

          Your argument explains why the frog-boiling metaphor is so important. Our affluent society has shown great patience on the way down but there comes a time when enough is enough. With the internet it is possible to report the problem. The traditional western virtues still have great potential appeal but their enthusiasts have been convinced that resistance is futile. It isn’t. All that is needed is for white people to demonstrate the alleged virtues that make them vulnerable, namely altruism. It takes courage to oppose PC, but we’re brave Viking types, aren’t we? While I disagree with the Alt Right, the militia types, and the evangelicals on various things, they share a willingness to get off their butts and take casualties, literally or metaphorically, to oppose the left. Tactically, it would help if the internet stays free and alternative channels are developed. Surely there are a few brainy types on the right who can program a computer without assistance?

      Since the social engineers plan decades in advance, it is quite possible that the Williams, were selected for hormonal transition as children. This is done as a psy-op on the populace. Both of them look like men and have been studied by people who are knowledgeable of male VS female natural body proportion/anatomy differences. Photoshopping photographs can alter & remove many original visuals as well as flaws. Serena’s pregnancy could very well be as fake as her hair. Supposedly she is married to a white man.

        I was being facetious. In truth, I spend very little time thinking about the deplorable Williams sisters, whatever “apparatus” they may have been born with. Yes, they are grotesque; yes, they are strikingly unfeminine; yes, they are not alone in being so. But their celebrity is a symptom, not a root cause, of what ails our societies.

        Of course, the fact that the Williamses prompt comments longer and immeasurably less pointed and coherent than Mr. Griffin’s focused observations—I refer to the two adroitly nailed by Pat Kittle just above—is a symptom, too. Which of these symptoms is the graver, the one more in need of triage-mode attention, is a matter on which reasonable men differ, as these many TOO threads demonstrate.

    I think there are two main Jewish theories to describe what happened since the 1950s.

    Theory #1: Nothing has changed. Under her black skin, Serena is just the same as you and Ingrid. It would be racist to notice any difference. The fact that she appears naked on a magazine cover is an irrelevant detail. Everyone still shares the same American values defined by our founding fathers (Alfred Kinsey, Bill Kristol and Woody Allen).

    Theory #2: Serena Williams has nothing in common with Ingrid Bergman, but she is the new American woman anyway. She is the new YOU that has nothing to do with YOU. It would be racist to claim that people have to be like you to be the new you.

    Of course, normal White people see things differently: they think that their world has been under attack by some unidentified enemy. There is still some hope of repelling the attack if only people will accept to name the enemy.

      Same subject, new try.
      Different types of Jewish discourse used in the media to intimidate White people:

      1. Nothing much has changed since the 1950s. Ingrid was no better than Serena. White people are still the majority. We don’t care about the White race anyway. We care about Western values. Vanity Fair is cool, degeneracy is cool, but we are against islam.

      2. Things keep changing. It’s a good thing. White countries have become hotels open to everyone. There’s nothing you can do about it. Christianity is no better than islam. If you are partial to Western civilization and the femininity of Ingrid Bergman, you are a racist.

      3. There are too many White people around, not enough diversity. We white people are oppressors. We need to be brought down a peg. Islam is cool. Serena rules.

      They don’t need to be coherent. It’s all nonsense anyway. One thing never changes: they tell White people to shut up and stop complaining about their displacement and the destruction of their civilization. And the intimidation works. We feel like we are breaking some taboo when we complain about it, even though most people agree with us.

    Ingrid Bergman did not strip for the public. Yet, she had a tremendous appeal. I watched her in a film the other day, “Spellbound.” A compelling and fascinating film, it, nevertheless, functioned as a informercial for Freudian psychology. One scene struck me as outstanding, in the context of the discussion about Serena. How times have changed for the worse, in my opinion. Bergman plays a shrink who falls in love with an amnesiac (Gergory Peck). In the scene she enters a restaurant and approaches the table where her colleges sit, all men. They stand. No man today would stand for Serena Williams as she approached a table.

    No one is shocked by that picture of Serena, or it would not be reproduced on The Occidental Observer. Even so, I like to think that that picture illustrates the huge gap between what the readers want and what the Jewish publishers are giving them. Vanity Fair is not catering to the interests of its readers. The Jewish media are trying to create an artificial interest in Serena. They don’t care if they are losing readers in the process. They are also using her as an excuse to deliver some propaganda for casual interracial sex. That is not what most readers are looking for in a celebrity magazine. My conclusion is the same as usual: There is an urgent need of racially separate TV stations, daily newspapers, and weekly magazines, with a militant pro-White point of view.

      As a tennis fan, I noticed that commercials suddenly (began) featuring commercials with Serena. She is selling mattresses. Is that suggesting some kind of subtext? I noticed it because I never thought of Serena as a celebrity outside of tennis, which is experiencing dwindling interest from the public.

      Armor: I commend your analysis highly. I part company with you, at least to a small extent, only as regards your opening words. That is, at first encounter perhaps I didn’t react to the picture with shock, stricto sensu; but I certainly experienced marked visceral disgust. I have never since opened this page without looking away until I’ve scrolled down a bit.

    There doesn’t appear to be any barriers that can’t be broken in the name of “sexual freedom”.

    Gilad Atzmon on one of his perverted critics.

    “When I looked into Minowitz’s literary activity, I found that in her book, “Growing up Golem,” she elaborates triumphantly on her homo-erotic relationship with her titillating mother and her disdain for her ‘smelly father.’”

    “Seemingly Minkowitz is no longer as proud of her own stories of her own mother flashing her nipples and showing off her sexy knickers.”

    Whatever sex Williams belongs to, the high ring/index finger ratio is typical of that of a male (cf.: Bergman):

    A particular subset of the population used to be dominant in the West, the kind that got on when life was a struggle, as this type had better genes, for example they could plan for tomorrow and save for a rainy day, and did not think that children out of wedlock was a good strategy. This type used to be favoured when selecting those who would form the elite that influences society’s norms. Society would reward those who could achieve something. Now that life is not a struggle in the West and no-one starves and the state is very rich, this has done away with the factors that enabled the first subset to dominate. Once they have lost power, then by default what replaces them is closer to the average, ie lower.

    Both the glamorization of interspecies mating and the vulgarization and barbarization of the culture are part of the leftist strategy to destroy the White race. It’s increasingly clear that this is not a big enough planet: It’s them or it’s us.

    “What am I left with? That a naked, pregnant Ingrid Bergman on the cover of Life magazine along with a fawning cover article about her wasn’t in my dad’s barber shop, and now would be, sums up the progress, regression, however you want to look at it, that’s taken place over the span of my life. And that how that happened is the big story of my time on earth.”

    — With respect, that really isn’t the big story of our time. The race-replacement of Whites, a genocide of the White race is the big thing happening now. Cultural shifts and tussles over them are the distraction.

      Nick Dean – the good news is that the day the race being genocided have had enough, they can EASILY stop and then REVERSE all the nonsense – and quickly and efficiently. This is due to superior organising ability etc. But this will not happen for a while. Whatever factors that currently favour the left taking over in ALL the West have to end first. (Eg excessive wealth and pampering and a MSM and education system that hates the West). Poverty will readjust people’s thinking and make them stop voting for the enemy within, one would hope.

    What (((they))) are peddling by constantly putting Negroes in our faces is: White racial negation, race defilement, and forced acceptance of the simian-like abnormal. Racial atavism writ large. That was the whole warp & woof of the media orchestrated Obama charade, and continues unabated virtually everywhere that (((they))) have any influence. Deception by normalizing the abnormal is the name of their Jewish game.

      I am having trouble making sense of this–not the comment but what it describes. That pop-culture invests much effort in normalizing the abnormal should be obvious. I do not mind, in principle, racial miscegenation. But, I do mind a seemingly organized effort to normalize it. Jewish interests may very well be involved behind the scenes, but I do not see what the payoff is for them. They do practice miscegenation. It is common in Hollywood, which creates all sorts of fads. The consequence of this policy is loss of identity, solidarity and influence. I do not know what militant Jews expect to result from Jewish/Negro marriages (or more in tune with the times, J/N liaisons). Why would Jews take leadership positions of efforts to normalize homosexuality and abortion, when such mores are guaranteed to undermine Israeli dominance in the Palestinian area. In the US Jewish women have the same rate of abortion as white women do (the last time I looked at the numbers). That means, just as European and American women, they are not reproducing themselves. Why do Jews, with exceptions, push a policy of racial suicide which includes themselves?

        Wearing real, but minor damage to your ethnic group at the cost of inflicting major damage to rival ethnic groups makes perfect sense. The integrity of the Jewish family in the Diaspora is relatively less compromised than its white analogue. Israel, on the other hand, maintains much stricter rules on both mixed-marriages and abortion than that of any Western nation, and the Orthodox birth rate is very high.

          Further to what you write, I’d add only that Mr. Kocan’s pose of puzzlement has passed its sell-by date. His polite but constantly maintained insistence on the fragility of the Jews’ position sounds far too practiced for this reader’s comfort. Surely we are well past the point where hard evidence is found wanting in relation to the fictional narrative of the (((Establishment))).

          Israel’s continued existence and welfare depends largely on the US and its generosity. So, what happens to Israel, if Jewish interests in the US succeed in a strategy of racial/cultural suicide of the European descended leadership class? You may be right, that Jewish interests are willing to allow the Jewish community to take a few hits as long as the greater society goes down, but that still means, to put it crudely, a parasite without a host. Apparently, the Jewish leadership has not thought this strategy through.

    Brazil awaits us all given current trends. But in actuality, the US and Western Europe will be in straits much worse than Brazil. Brazil is still 47% European, I believe, yet has little if any influx from the Third World. Meanwhile, the non-Europid invasions into Western Europe and America are likely to dilute the European genome far below the level of Brazil and other mostly European-based South American nations.

    The other curiosity about Brazil, though heavily miscegenated, is that white genes are highly favored in that society. Many Brazilians with conspicuous non-white features nevertheless identify as white on the basis of a sort of reverse “one-drop rule”. That is, it is not considered taboo to identify as white even though clearly one is not. In fact, the self-identification as white is a mark of prestige in Brazil. This attitude is remarkably opposite the North American – European view wherein white self-identification is considered a sin and, quite soon no doubt, an instance of outright criminality.

    There may be hope yet for the white genome, but it certainly won’t be found in North America or western Europe. Ironically, it just might be found in the South.
