Costs of Multiculturalism

Charles Bloch: Is Being Anti-White Good for the Jews?

It’s refreshing to see Charles Bloch discuss “anti-white Jews in his recent VDARE.com article (“Race Realism: Good for the Jews, Good for America“). He also acknowledges that

it is undeniable that Jews are vastly overrepresented in a number of anti-Western political and intellectual movements, such as liberalizing our immigration policy, suppressing legitimate scientific study of racial differences, and promoting anti-white discrimination. [links in original]

And that’s important because,  given their wealth and influence in the media, politics, and the academic world, at the very least Jews are an imposing component of the anti-White status quo in all of these areas. These anti-White attitudes are entirely mainstream among Jews; they pervade the organized Jewish community. What’s difficult is finding Jews like Bloch who honestly acknowledge what is a taboo subject for Jews. For his trouble he will doubtless be labeled a “self-hating Jew’ or worse by the organized Jewish community. It’s the sort of thing that has resulted in the SPLC labeling me a “virulent anti-Semite.” Read more

White Dispossession and the Racialization of American Politics Accelerate

Ron Brownstein’s aptly named “The Next America” is a tale of increasingly rapid White dispossession. Key quotes:

From every angle, the results showed that the nation’s transformation into a “majority-minority” nation is proceeding even faster than expected. Nationally, the overall share of the non-Hispanic white population dropped from 69.1 percent in 2000 to 63.7 in 2010, a greater decline than most analysts anticipated. In a mirror image, the minority population grew from 30.9 percent in 2000 to 36.3 percent in 2010.

Given that the White percentage includes Jews and Middle Eastern people who do not identify as White (or vote like most Whites), the White population of European descent is likely below 60%.

The change over the past decade was especially dramatic among young people. In the new census, 46.5 percent of people under 18 were minority, a dramatic jump from 39.1 percent in 2000. As recently as last summer, demographers projected that minorities would make up a majority of the under-18 population sometime after 2020. At the current rate of growth, however, nonwhites will comprise a majority of children in the United States by 2015. And because of the explosive minority growth in the youth population—the people who will form families and become parents in the coming years—the nonwhite share of the overall population is likely to grow even faster over the next decade, says Brookings Institution demographer William Frey.

Harold Covington’s Northwest Quartet

In 1989, prolific British writer Paul Johnson published Intellectuals offering case studies of a string of intellectuals, beginning with Jean-Jacques Rousseau and then Shelley, Marx, Ibsen, Tolstoy, Hemingway, Bertolt Brecht, Bertrand Russell, Sartre, right on down to more modern public thinkers. Johnson’s point is that however much these men (and Lillian Hellman) might have professed love of “humanity” and “progress,” they were rats to the actual people around them.

For example, Johnson wrote of the poet Shelley:

Any moth than came near his fierce flame was  singed. His first wife, Harriet, and his mistress, Fay Godwin, both committed suicide when he deserted them. In his letters he denounced their actions roundly for causing him distress and inconvenience. . . .  His children by Harriet were made wards of the court. He erased them completely from his mind, and they never received  a  single word from their father. Another child, a bastard, died in  a  Naples foundling hospital where he had abandoned her.

Of Karl Marx, the self-professed savior of the working man, Johnson wrote: He seduced his wife’s servant, begot a son by her, then forced Friedrich Engels to assume paternity. Marx’s daughter Eleanor once let out a cri de coeur in a letter: “Is it not wonderful, when you come to look things squarely in the face, how rarely we  seem to practice all the fine things we  preach—to others?” She later committed suicide.

Johnson concluded that we must “Beware intellectuals.” “Not only should they be kept well away from the levers of power, they should also be objects of particular suspicion when they seek to offer collective advice.” Read more

Report From Occupied America: Jared Taylor’s Open Letter to Alexandra Wallace

Like Alexandra Wallace’s video on Asians at UCLA, Jared Taylor’s article on the fallout should go viral. Here I post the first part of VDARE.com’s version of Taylor’s article with a link to the rest. Kevin M

Dear Miss Wallace,

Welcome to fame you never wanted.

By my count, since you posted your YouTube video about Asians at UCLA on March 11—10 days ago—some six million people have watched it. You took it down two days later, but it went viral anyway. There are now scores of “replies” and “parodies” on YouTube, most of them vile, many of them obscene.

National newspapers have held you up to ridicule, and UCLA’s vice chancellor for student affairs Janina Montero[Email hersays she is appalled and offended. After a week of enduring what you say were “the harassment of my family, the publishing of my personal information, death threats and being ostracized from an entire community,” you have decided to drop out of UCLA. [UCLA student who made controversial video says she’ll leave school | L.A. NOW | Los Angeles Time, March 18, 2011] [Rest of article.]

The (Corrupt) Multicultural Left Is Totally In Charge of the University

Typical day at the university. On the faculty email list for the entire College of Liberal Arts, an activist says we absolutely must petition the President for an LGBT Advisory Council (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, and Transgendered; I wasn’t sure what that last one meant, so here’s Wikipedia’s take for those unaccustomed to leftspeak). Campus liberals quickly indicate their public support by responding positively on the list, thereby earning their stripes with their colleagues and ensuring they will get tenure if they don’t have it and get to go to good parties if they do.  In addition to a great many individual faculty members, seven department chairs and two entire departments joined in the effort. No one was so bereft of all human feeling as to oppose such an initiative. So the President agreed to it and the Dean announced the decision on the list.

Victory!! What were the odds that something so deeply controversial in a contemporary university environment would be approved? Read more

Japan vs. America

Hiroshima, 64 years after the bomb

It seems more and more Americans are taking a sour view of the way things are going for the country — and rightly so. “By all accounts,” our editor Kevin MacDonald writes, “particularist anger is welling up in White Americans — especially among the middle and working class — outraged at the changes they see.”

Curmudgeon James Howard Kunstler has been repeating his mantra about an America in decline: “The failure of leadership extends through government to the news media to business to the universities to the courts. All authorities are suspect. All are dishonest and cowardly.”

How can one deny that the “nation” is not in free fall? It really strikes me that it’s only a matter of time before one of the critical pillars of collective life collapses and brings the whole rotten structure down around us. I mean, isn’t it obvious that the promised multicultural utopia has degenerated into a dystopian nightmare formed from what used to be our country? Read more

Two Californias

A major theme of the European right, exemplified by Geert Wilders, is that Islam does  not mesh with European values—that it promotes political despotism based on fear, the subjugation of women, and a fatalistic world view that is inimical to economic progress. (Wilders’ essay on Islam is well worth reading. I was particularly struck by his description of the arrival of the Egyptian President Mubarak at Sharm-el-Sheikh in 1982: “I remember the fear which suddenly engulfed the town when it was announced that Mubarak was coming on an unexpected visit; I can still see the cavalcade of black cars on the day of his visit and feel the almost physical awareness of fear, like a cold chill on that very hot day in Summer.” Political despotism indeed.)

I thought of that when reading Victor Davis Hansen’s National Review article “Two Californias.” He describes a rural California that exists in a parallel universe to the coastal cities—indeed to all of White America. Decades of immigration and White dispossession have resulted in a Mexican sub-culture that has simply transplanted itself from Mexico to California. Spanish is the first language, and the schools (among the worst in the state) are almost completely Mexican. The small White farmers have been displaced by mechanized agriculture and the White working class has seen their manufacturing jobs shipped overseas. Read more
