Kunstler: The American Way of Life is Hard on (White) Boys

Masculinity and whiteness are widely demonized in our institutions today, including our schools.

When white high school boys have no realistic outlets for their maleness and their white genetic drive to achieve great things they sometimes bring weapons to school and open fire on other students and their teachers.

James Howard Kunstler looks at the desperate lives of American boys in this excerpt.

Excerpt from Lew Rockwell


I will venture to say — against the tide of current sexual politics — that adolescence is much tougher for boys these days than it is for girls. Every boy in one way or another faces his archetypal hero’s journey, the hard-wired seeking to become powerful in one way or another, to accomplish something, to prevail over adversaries, to win the goodies of life. This country used to be a place where young men had many useful and practical paths to follow in enacting that eternal script.

Bionic Mosquito Explains the Postmodernist Plot to Destroy the West Better Than Anyone I’ve Seen

You’re probably familiar with Cultural Marxism, the Marxist shift toward gaining power through the destruction of traditional cultures rather than through economics.

Barack Obama is more a Cultural Marxist, allied with the Saul Alinksky school of thought, than he is a traditional Marxist/Leninist.

Postmodernism, the ruling principle in most university departments, is Cultural Marxism on steroids.

In 2005, before I was so rudely fired by the university, I was struggling to understand post modernism. I never quite got it.

This piece by Bionic Mosquito is so good that I’m putting up the whole piece rather than an excerpt in case the power elites take down his site. If the author objects, I’ll condense it, but for now, it’s all here, all 2000 words. Images are my selections.

Lew Rockwell

In listening to Jordan Peterson over the last few months, he has often commented on the destructive philosophy of post-modernism, a philosophy that – in his view – is the force behind the cultural destruction underway in the west.

Prior to hearing this from him, my knowledge on the matter went to the cultural Marxists of the Frankfurt School and, before this, Antonio Gramsci. Peterson is aware of these influences, but for him the Post-Modernists are today’s driving force.

What is meant by postmodernism?

Postmodernism is difficult to define, because to define it would violate the postmodernist’s premise that no definite terms, boundaries, or absolute truths exist.

Are nationalism, politics, religion, and war the result of a primitive human mentality? Is truth an illusion? How can Christianity claim primacy or dictate morals? The list of concerns goes on and on….

It seems both an infinite number of realities and no realities – all at the same time. No wonder it is difficult to define.

I have been thinking about this post from the first time I heard the subject mentioned by Peterson. Even setting aside the normal life that often gets in the way of writing, this has been a subject that I have had to let stew in the old noodle for a while. I offer the following as an initial foray into a subject that I do not yet understand very well.

I have found a few helpful resources on the topic and will reference two of these in this post. With this, let’s begin.

Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault, by Stephen R. C. Hicks, a book review by David Gordon

A more thorough definition and explanation of this philosophy:

…Hicks tells us exactly what he means by postmodernism: “Metaphysically, postmodernism is anti-realist, holding that it is impossible to speak meaningfully about an independently existing reality. Postmodernism substitutes instead a social-linguistic, constructionist account of reality. Epistemologically, having rejected the notion of an independently existing reality, postmodernism denies that reason or any other method is a means of acquiring direct knowledge of that reality. . . . Postmodern accounts of human nature are consistently collectivist, holding that individuals’ identities are constructed largely by the social-linguistic groups they are a part of . . . postmodern themes in ethics and politics are characterized by an identification with and sympathy for the groups perceived to be oppressed in the conflicts, and a willingness to enter the fray on their behalf” (emphasis in original).

THIS COMIC MOCKS POSTMODERNISM.

Conservative Professor Exposes University “Racial Justice” Indoctrination

YOUR WHITE PRIVILEGE MADE THEM DO IT, GOYIM.

Professor Tom DiLorenzo, who’s a regular contributor to the libertarian Lew Rockwell site, describes his university’s faculty indoctrination.

In two words, black rioting, murder, assault, hatred, parasiting, laziness, and so forth are caused by “white privilege.”

This piece would be funny if it weren’t real. If you have problems with high blood pressure, do not read it because your blood pressure will definitely go up. Delorenzo mocks his indoctrination. That’s the part you’ll love.

Lew Rockwell

Several months ago the president of Loyola University Maryland, Brian Linnane, announced to the faculty that he had been thinking a lot about the Baltimore riots that took place two years earlier. (The riots, you may recall, were a response to the death of a local black drug gangster while in a police van after he had been arrested. All of the police involved, most of whom were black, were eventually acquitted at trial. The rioters looted the CVS pharmacies in town, emptying them of oxycodone and other painkillers, then burned them to the ground along with police cars, private homes, and public buildings. The former mayor of Baltimore publicly referred to the rioters as “our children” and instructed the police to stand down and “give them their space” to loot, vandalize, and burn down parts of her city).

In response to all of this the college president decided that what is needed to reduce the likelihood of such events in the future is to put the affluent, mostly white, Loyola University Maryland faculty through a round of cultural Marxist “racial justice” training. Such language reminded me of Chinese and Vietnamese communist “re-indoctrination camps” where attendees were pressured/coerced into becoming good little obedient communists. So, naturally, I had to attend to see what it was all about.

As a bonus I’ve embedded Tom’s 12 minute Lincoln video at the end of this post.

Black Economics Prof Sees NFL Protests as “pathetic, useless showboating”

Libertarian economics professor Walter Williams suggests that black people need to find new heroes, not the criminals they currently idolize.

Blacks are hypocritical, and dare I say it, stupid, when it comes to their outrage when police officers justifiably kill one of their beloved thugs, while they quietly accept many more murders of their people perpetrated by members of their own race.

Excerpt from Lew Rockwell

According to The Washington Post, 737 people have been shot and killed by police this year in the United States. Of that number, there were 329 whites, 165 blacks, 112 Hispanics, 24 members of other races and 107 people whose race was unknown (http://tinyurl.com/zyz2tpq). In Illinois, home to one of our most dangerous cities — Chicago — 18 people have been shot and killed by police this year. In the city itself, police have shot and killed 10 people and shot and wounded 10 others. Somebody should ask the kneeling black NFL players why they are protesting this kind of killing in the Windy City and ignoring other sources of black death.

Here are the Chicago numbers for the ignored deaths. So far in 2017, there have been 533 murders and 2,880 shootings. On average, a person is shot every two hours and 17 minutes and murdered every 12 1/2 hours (http://tinyurl.com/o36cqfc). In 2016, when Colin Kaepernick started taking a knee, Chicago witnessed 806 murders and 4,379 shootings. It turns out that most of the murder victims are black. Adding to the tragedy is the fact that Chicago has a 12.7 percent murder clearance rate. That means that when a black person is murdered, his perpetrator is found and charged with his murder less than 13 percent of the time.

Similar statistics regarding police killing blacks versus blacks killing blacks apply to many of our predominantly black urban centers, such as Philadelphia, Baltimore, New Orleans, St. Louis and Oakland. Many Americans, including me, see the black NFL player protest of police brutality as pathetic, useless showboating. Seeing as these players have made no open protest against the thousands of blacks being murdered and maimed by blacks, they must view it as trivial in comparison with the police killings. Most of the police killings fit into the category of justified homicide.

So what can be done? Black people need to find new heroes. Right now, at least in terms of the support given, their heroes are criminals such as Baltimore’s Freddie Gray, Ferguson’s Michael Brown and Florida’s Trayvon Martin. Black support tends to go toward the criminals in the community rather than to the overwhelming number of people in the community who are law-abiding. That needs to end. What also needs to end is the lack of respect for and cooperation with police officers. Some police are crooked, but black people are likelier to be victims of violent confrontations with police officers than whites simply because blacks commit more violent crimes than whites per capita.

For a race of people, these crime statistics are by no means flattering, but if something good is to be done about it, we cannot fall prey to the blame games that black politicians, black NFL players, civil rights leaders and white liberals want to play. If their vision is accepted, we can expect little improvement of the status quo.

Dr. Williams has written in the past about the black rapping culture that makes heroes of thugs. There’s no reason to be optimistic that blacks can change their behavior when the (((entertainment industry))) glorifies black thuggery.

Paul Craig Roberts Explains How Israel Benefits from the Trump-Inspired NFL Kerfuffle

THE DONALD AND BIBI.

Those who believe that American President Donald Trump is a Jew stooge have been posting here and there for the last week a simple criticism of the NFL spectacle that has played out since last Friday.

There is a case that Trump is inflaming American patriotism as part of a larger ZOG scheme to take America to war. While I enjoy watching the NFL and its overpaid Simian-Americans self-destruct, I also understand that the end game is likely war, which we the people elected Trump to end.

I inserted the bold type in this excerpt.

Excerpt from Lew Rockwell

Before a few dimwits send me emails demanding explanation why I stand for anti-American minorities against “the greatest country in the world,” let us all first consider where this is going. The answer is: nowhere good. The hyper-patriotism that is being whipped up is so irrational that it is against the self-interests of the counter-protesters, who are hurting the visibility of their merchandising brand and costing the shareholders profits, burning their clothing and expensive football tickets, and denying themselves their favorite entertainment.

The military/security complex, the hegemonic neoconservatives, and the Israel Lobby are sitting there, licking their chops. They know what to do with this display of ignorant patriotism. They will turn it against Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia. Their profits will flow even higher, neocon ambitions will be realized, and Israel will have the US eliminate another country — Iran — in the way of its expansion. Or so they think.

Russia cannot afford a vassal of Washington in Iran or the type of chaos in Iran that now engulfs Iraq and Libya. It is a short distance from Iran through Azerbaijan or Turkmenistan into Muslim areas of Russia and former Muslim provinces of the Soviet Union. If Iran falls, Russia is the next to be destabilized. Additionally, Iran in Washington’s hands extends to the East Washington’s surrounding of Russia. The Russian government would be confronted with US missile bases on its borders ranging from the Baltics through eastern and southern Europe, Ukraine, Georgia and Iran. Moreover, US missiles in Iran could reach China in a few minutes as can the US missile bases being constructed on China’s Pacific border under the guise of countering “the North Korean threat.”

China depends on Iran for 20 percent of its oil supply. China was forced out of its Libyan oil supply by Washington’s overthrow of Gaddafi. Losing Iran would be a blow. At some point these two powerful countries will have to realize that their national existence is at stake. China has been too busy making money to pay attention, and Russia has been in thrall to its centuries-old desire to be part of the West.

The Russian government’s policy of replying to Washington’s aggression with diplomacy has failed totally. This policy has been extremely expensive to Russia and today is a direct threat to Russia’s national survival. Whether Russia is too controlled by Washington and Israeli-installed billionaires to attend to its national interests remains to be seen.

China’s lust for riches is a non-substitute for national survival.

Washington is counting on these singular weaknesses of the only two countries capable of serving as a check on Washington’s unilateralism.

However, there are countervailing powers in Russia and China. The Operation Command of the Russian High Command has publicly given its opinion that Washington is preparing a surprise nuclear attack on Russia. It would be derelict beyond comprehension for President Putin to ignore this conclusion. Inside China, historic pride is a rival influence to the lust for riches. The Chinese are determined never again to be a mere playground for foreign powers.

Sooner or later even the hubris-overstuffed Zionist Lobby will realize that the American war against Iran that Israel is demanding is a fuse for a Third World War and that the Jews will be destroyed along with everyone else. From the “Nile to the Euphrates” will be a wasteland.

On this website on September 27, 2017, I addressed what can be done from the Western side to reduce the tensions that are leading to nuclear armageddon. On the Russian and Chinese side what can be done is a tri-party mutual defense pact between Russia, Iran, and China that is made public. This would tell the psychopaths in Washington and Israel that an attack on Iran means World War III.

If this is not a deterrent, then Washington and Israel are lost to evil, and life on earth is ended.

Paul Craig Roberts rather gingerly names the Jew as the instigator of World War III. Apparently, the (((Deep State))) is too powerful for one man (Trump) to overcome. With Bannon and Flynn gone and Ivanka whispering in his ear, Trump is veering off the course we had hoped he would follow.

Libertarian Believes “White America” is an Insane Idea

Normally, I would present an excerpt from this piece, but since I don’t want to distort the author’s arguments via omission, here’s the whole piece. My commentary follows the article, which was penned by Bionic Mosquito.

To tease you into reading the Mosquito’s piece, I’ll reveal that he does talk about Jews.

Lew Rockwell

Matt,

I am not concerned with my friend’s opinion about a white America. I am concerned that he was confused about my opinion. Allow me to clarify:

To set the stage, what does one mean by “white America”? No more non-European migration? Deporting all those from a non-European ancestry, no matter the small percentage in the blood? Disallowing mixed marriages? All these must occur to achieve a “white America.”

The first could be achieved relatively easily – it would require modifying the current government enforced immigration policies with a different set of government enforced immigration policies. As there is no libertarian solution to immigration in a world of state borders, I am, at worst, ambivalent about this but could easily go for it.

Of course, if the USG (run mostly by white people) would just stop all of the wars in countries populated by brown-skinned people – both traditional wars and drug wars – this entire problem would shrink dramatically of its own accord.

Florida Man Has His “Gestapo” Moment of the Day

DON’T PICK UP THE POWER LINES, KIDDIES.

One of the universal failings of the American writer is the tendency to insert “Nazi” references into every piece that involves a tyrannical action by the State. How about giving Mao and Stalin equal time for a change.

Other than the Nazi references, this libertarian piece by Tom di Lorenzo is very revealing of the bad side of the American cop.

Lew Rockwell

It was a beautiful morning here on the east coast of South Florida, especially since the hurricane shifted west, and we are no longer even in “the cone of uncertainty.” We’re still supposed to have 50-75 mph winds tonight, but no “hurricane of the century.”

The state and local governments here are in full Gestapo mode, going on television to constantly bark out orders: Leave now! Don’t buy too much gas! Be nice to your neighbors! Curfew!! Get off the streets! Don’t pick up any fallen power lines! Stay away from the snakes and alligators! No liquor sales! Shut down your business — now!

Thinking that I was living in America and not Nazi Germany, I set out for a walk on the beach around 9 AM since I expected to be cooped up for a day or two. I couldn’t get to the beach, however, since the police had blocked the bridge over the intracoastal waterway, which is about a quarter mile from the beach. You could get to the beach by showing the constables the proper papers proving that you lived in a house at the beach, but no one else could.

So I walked elsewhere, and at the end of my walk I noticed that the Sunnoco station in my neighborhood was still open (all other stores are closed and hurricane shuttered). So I went inside to buy a bottle of water and, before I could pay, a local cop barged in and yells at the owner over the heads of the customers in line: “Shut down now! Curfew!” This was before noon and there is a curfew, but not until 3 PM. So all the customers who were making their last minute beer-and-chips/hurricane-party purchases had to leave and the proprietor had to shut everything down and lock the doors while the cop remained there to supervise.

Most people in my town are at home or have left, so walking around, it seems that there is a police car prowling every block. Talk about easy overtime pay.

American politicians barking the same orders over and over and over reveals their petty, do-gooder, despotic nature. It is disgusting how many times the same crap has been repeated over and over the last few days by mayors and police chiefs, as well as the governor of Florida.

We are not children, most of us. The dummies too stupid to not pick up downed power lines and pet alligators deserve what they get.

DO NOT PET THE ALLIGATORS, DUMMIES.
