PC Run Amok: City Cancels Columbus Day Despite Protests from Italians

Chris Columbus got the immigration ball rolling in the Americas.

So what’s the problem?

Oh, they were WHITE immigrants.

The wops aren’t taking this news well, and who could blame them?

Press Herald

Maine’s largest city will no longer celebrate Columbus Day as a municipal holiday.

The Portland City Council voted unanimously Monday to designate the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day. The vote came after nearly an hour of public comment.

Portland became the latest municipality in Maine to recognize indigenous people instead of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, who arrived in the New World on Oct. 12, 1492. Belfast was the first to make the switch in 2015, Bangor did so last month and Orono followed suit last week. Later Monday night, the Brunswick Town Council voted 8-1 to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

Columbus Day has been a federal holiday since 1937 and will continue to be.

While the initiatives in Belfast and Bangor saw no public opposition, Italian-Americans, including representatives of the Italian Heritage Center, opposed the proposal in Portland. They said Columbus Day is less a celebration about one individual and more a celebration of Italian-American heritage.

“This is like a slap in the face to the Italians who reside here,” said Marianne Dalfonso Reali, a past president of the heritage center, which has a statue of Columbus in its lobby in Portland.

Steve Caminiti, who grew up in Portland and now lives in Falmouth, said he didn’t want to argue about whether Columbus was a good man or a bad man. Instead, he highlighted the fact that Portland, and America in general, is a nation of immigrants.

“We look at that as something that celebrates our contribution to the city of Portland and the country overall,” Caminiti said. “We understand all of these things are tainted in history.”

But others see a darker side of history – one that is rarely taught in history books.

Maulian Dana Smith, a member of the Penobscot Nation, said Columbus committed heinous crimes, including genocide. She noted how natives literally had their native language beaten out of them.

“You can’t ask us to gloss over that history just so people can have a day off,” Smith said.

Portland resident Jenn Sorkin was more blunt.

Columbus was “a murderer,” Sorkin said. “He’s a rapist. He’s an enslaver. If he were alive today there is no doubt he would be on death row. It’s absolute nonsense.”

Sorkin? Isn’t that a Jewish name?

We can’t have an article without quoting a Jew agitator, now can we?

Western Europeans first came to the Portland peninsula back in the 1600s, when it was a part of Falmouth. However, little is known about the Wabanakis who once called this region “Aucocisco.” Historians have estimated 90 percent of them were killed by disease brought by early explorers and by warfare after settlers arrived in full force.

City Councilor Spencer Thibodeau seemed to sum up the view of the council when he said the proposal was about including indigenous people in the historical discussion, rather than excluding Italian-Americans.

“(It’s) more of an opportunity to celebrate this day as one chooses,” Thibodeau said. “That is what I think is most powerful about it.”

Supporters of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, who noted that Columbus never set foot in America, called the council action a first step in correcting history books, but it’s unclear how it will affect students in Portland.

Superintendent Xavier Botana said changing the school calendar would require a vote of the school board, which has not discussed the issue. And the district does not prescribe lesson plans for Columbus Day, Botana said.

“It is important to note that our teachers teach about the impact of colonization on Native American tribes, including Maine Native Americans, throughout the social studies curriculum in an age-appropriate manner,” he said in an email.

“We also teach about the interplay of enduring themes such as exploration and discovery, economic expansionism, immigration, colonialism, genocide and cultural genocide, among other concepts associated with the arrival of Europeans in the Americas,” he said.

Recognizing indigenous people on Columbus Day is a growing trend across the U.S. A few states – Alaska, Oregon, South Dakota and Vermont – don’t recognize Columbus Day.

A bill to make Indigenous Peoples’ Day a state holiday did not advance in the Legislature this year.

The proposal was sponsored by Councilor Pious Ali, who participated in a workshop this year with the Maine-Wabanaki REACH program, which aims to improve the health and well-being of Wabanakis.

I hate to see whites participating in soft white genocide. The erasure of explorers from history, all of whom were white, is intended to be demoralizing, and it is.

NYC Prof (((Scott Gentile))) Wishes Maximum Hurricane Damage on Florida Trump Supporters

HUNTER COLLEGE SKYBRIDGE.

I was unable to find a photo of (((Scott Gentile))) that was positively him. I did find his Rate My Professor comments from his students. One of them claims he emailed him or her a dic pic. Others complain about his Marxist indoctrination of the students.

Here are some juicy comments.

He rambled about Donald Trump and how racist white people were for about half the lecture. I just left half way through. The university should not be supporting ideological lecturers, especially marxists in this case.

Making jokes at what could be one of the most disastrous hurricanes the US has ever experienced is SICK. I thought we all believed everyone’s lives are equal and important and all that.

always comes to class drunk, emailed me a dicpic when i asked for homework which i thought was weird would not take again

Reverse Racist and leftist propaganda believer.

tried to implement a curve against whites, so i left

Zionist Jew

As is usual in the ratings, there was a split. Most of the remaining reviews of Muh Jew were positive. They may have been posted by Jews or nonwhites, however.

His true colors came out in his Facebook rant. Really, there’s not much to learn here. Another Jewish professor hates Donald Trump, hates white people, and wishes us ill. We already knew that. Gentile just reminds us not to forget the tendency of the Jew toward hatred of us.

CNN Invites Jewish White Supremacist on to Discuss DACA

SO-CALLED WHITE SUPREMACIST DAN STEIN ON THE RIGHT.

Jewwatch identifies Dan Stein as a Jew.

I’m not sure what CNN’s agenda was in inviting a Jew to discuss immigration reform. I do like Stein’s ideas, especially his calling out immigrants (Mexicans?) for “competitive breeding” intended to destroy the America they hate.

Think Progress

In the wake of reports that President Trump will repeal DACA, the executive order that protects 800,000 undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children, CNN hosted a debate on Monday morning.

The participants were Democratic strategist Maria Cordona and Dan Stein, who was identified as the president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

CNN did not mention FAIR’s deep roots in white supremacy, eugenics, and white nationalism. The organization was founded by John Tanton, who founded FAIR to keep America “a majority-white population.”

“As Whites see their power and control over their lives declining, will they simply go quietly into the night? Or will there be an explosion?,” Tanton said in 1986.

In 1993, Tanton said “I’ve come to the point of view that for European-American society and culture to persist requires a European-American majority, and a clear one at that.”

Stein himself, who has worked at the organization since 1982, said he believes America’s immigration laws, which he regards as too permissive, are an effort “to retaliate against Anglo-Saxon dominance.” He said that the current generation of immigrants is engaged in “competitive breeding” and that “[m]any of them hate America, hate everything the United States stands for.”

Stein was also involved in the publication of The Social Contract, a journal published by Tanton, that featured white nationalist authors.

Stein recently suggested that, if America does not crack down on immigration, it will lead to an insurrection. “The immigration issue is going to be dealt with one way or the other. Now, it’s either going to be dealt with responsibly and reasonably, or it will be decided in the streets, because the public is going to get so frustrated with total inaction,” Stein said in July.

In the CNN interview, Stein largely assumed a more respectable veneer, saying he supported a “reasonable compromise.” Stein argued that Congress should not approve a replacement for the DACA, which he called “legislative amnesty,” unless Democrats include various aspects of Trump’s immigration platform, including funding for the border wall.

But Stein’s decades long career leading an organization that openly promotes white nationalist ideals is anything but reasonable. A casual viewer of the CNN segment, however, would know nothing about Stein’s history.

Isn’t it amazing how not wanting your country, founded by good and true Englishmen, to become a turd world clusterfreak is called out as “white supremacy.” Obama and his ilk’s claim that immigrants enrich us is a bogus claim, based on a desire to turn the country over completely to its Jew masters. Only a fool would fall for that crap.

A piece that mentions Stein favorably, while calling out Jews for their “divide and rule” pro-immigration strategy can be read at Vdare.

Restaurant Forced to Close After Owner’s Support for David Duke Revealed

Mass hysteria revolving around Nazis and the KKK have claimed another white victim. A restaurant whose owner is a David Duke supporter is facing a boycott for expressing his political views by donating to Duke’s Senate race.

We on the alt-right have some scores to settle in that regard too. Our boycott of Target last year was quite successful. We need to do more.

CBS Local San Francisco

SANTA CRUZ (KPIX 5) — A Santa Cruz restaurant is shut down for what the owner is calling “political terrorism.”

Some employees and patrons boycotted the Chinese restaurant, after public records obtained by Indybay revealed restaurant owner Roger Grigsby gave $500 to David Duke’s campaign last year.

Duke ran for a US Senate seat in Louisiana and lost. He is an avowed white nationalist, anti-Semite and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

Now, after 38 years in business, Grigsby’s restaurant, O’Mei on Mission Street is closed.

There is a sign in the window telling patrons, “O’Mei has come under attack. Slanderous and malicious Internet rumors concerning this business, it’s owner, and staff have forced us to close for now.”

Grigsby sent KPIX 5 an e-mail, saying, in part:

We are just a token in a much larger process of terrorizing white European Americans into silence in what has come to be known as the “war on whites.” My campaign contribution was to one of the men supporting European American civil rights.

It is unclear if or when the restaurant will reopen.

Alt-Right Tech People Working to Create a Free Speech Internet

After going through a discussion of banned “hate” sites, this article describes the efforts by Gab to create an alternative Internet that would allow so-called “hate speech” to be expressed free of worry.

Gab is looking for venture capitalists to fund the new Internet.

Excerpt from Slate

Utsav Sanduja, the chief operating officer of Gab, described the “Free Speech Tech Alliance” to me as “a group of 100 engineers plus from Silicon Valley who are working with us behind the scenes to create an alternative infrastructure.” The movement’s goal is to own its own servers and run its own web hosting, domain registrar, DDoS protection software, cloud storage services, and encryption technology, not to mention social networks like Gab and other “free-speech”–centric alternatives, like a YouTube replacement called PewTube. Sanduja claims Gab has received “hundreds of applications” to join the alliance, which he says is purposefully being kept small in order to protect the identities of its members who fear losing their jobs at Silicon Valley companies. Though it’s unclear where exactly they work, at least a handful are on Google’s campus, Sanduja claims.

Gab is building off the work of a number of existing alternative web services hailing from the far right. Pax Dickinson, the former chief technology officer of Business Insider who left the company after Gawker revealed his racist- and rape joke–filled Twitter account, has started his own alt-right crowdfunding platform called Counter.Fund. There’s also Hatreon, a free speech–centric Patreon alternative, which states in its guidelines that “Hate speech is protected speech.” There’s an alt-right-friendly version of Wikipedia called Metapedia. There’s even a small alt-right dating website, Wasp.love, with the tagline, “Preserve your heritage! Be fruitful and multiply! Join WASP.love today!” Though these services are platforms for people who traffic in hate speech, they’re different from the message boards and forums of Stormfront and Gab, where white supremacist and anti-Semitic ideas are discussed and incubated, and where perpetrators of hate crimes like Dylann Roof and Anders Breivik find encouragement and become indoctrinated.

Dickinson is trying to appeal to investors, though he doesn’t seem hopeful. “Leftist VCs leap at the chance to signal their Leftism, regardless of how stupid the project is,” Dickinson lamented last week on Gab. (He declined to be interviewed for this piece.) Still, alt-tech adherents are convinced that there is a market for their services. “I expect the earliest adopters will be those with the most fringe and radical views who have already been kicked off of YouTube and other platforms,” said Anthony Mayfield, creator of PewTube. “But as the definition of someone who is a bad person who isn’t allowed to say things online begins to grow, I think the users of my platform and others like it will continue to become more and more mainstream.”

In the past two weeks, a handful of far-right video bloggers have jumped onboard to promote the nascent movement, including Styxhexenhammer666, a popular libertarian video blogger, whose two videos about the effort have notched almost 70,000 views. Others have posted “call to action” videos, rallying technologists to join the movement to build “new ‘free speech’ platforms,” which have also attracted thousands of viewers. While these might not read as huge numbers, they suggest a movement with a groundswell of grassroots support.

Here’s one Styx video mentioned by Slate:

Here’s the second Styx video calling for a new Internet:

Lesbian couple win $10,000 damages from county clerk who called them an ‘abomination’

SAMANTHA BROOKOVER AND AMANDA ABRAMOVICH.

Get with the program or get sued. That’s the message here. What about “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

Naturally, there were Jew lawyers involved in winning this cash award for the two filthy carpet munchers pictured above.

The Independent

Last year, Amanda Abramovich and Samantha Brookover headed to their county clerk’s office in West Virginia to receive a marriage license. What should have been one of the happiest days of their lives quickly took a sour turn.

A deputy clerk in Gilmer County allegedly chastised the women as she processed their marriage license, calling them an “abomination” and telling them God would “deal” with them, according to a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia.

A year and a half later, the Gilmer County clerk’s office is paying Abramovich and Brookover, who have been together for seven years, $10,000 in damages and issuing them an apology, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.

When the couple requested a marriage license they expected an eye roll or another small sign of disapproval from the clerk’s office in the largely conservative county – 75 percent of the residents voted for President Donald Trump – but they didn’t expect the “tirade of harassment and disparagement” they received, according to the complaint.

Deputy Clerk Debbie Allen slammed the paperwork on the desk, said she was a Christian and called the couple an “abomination” in a rant that continued for several minutes, according to court documents. Another clerk joined in, shouting that it was Allen’s “religious right” to harass the couple, according to the complaint.

The Supreme Court had ruled seven months earlier that the Constitution gives same-sex couples the right to wed, no matter where in America they live.

Abramovich remained silent throughout the abuse. Brookover cried.

They received their marriage license, but it was not the joyous day the women or their family members, who came with a camera, had hoped for.

When Brookover’s mother later called the county clerk’s office to report the encounter, she said County Clerk Jean Butcher told her she knew about the interaction and believed the couple deserved the treatment they received. The next same-sex couple that sought a marriage license, she allegedly said, “would get the same or worse” treatment.

A week after later, Allen told the Charleston Gazette-Mail that she didn’t call the couple an “abomination.” In fact, Allen said, “I felt I talked nicely to them.”

She did acknowledge that she told the couple what they were doing was wrong and God would judge them, according to the Gazette-Mail.

“I just told them my opinion,” she said. “I just felt led to do that. I believe God was standing with me and that’s just my religious belief.”

But in a news release on Aug. 30, Gilmer County seemed to do an about-face. The county acknowledged that Brookover and Abramovich “were disrespected and disparaged by staff” because they were a same-sex couple.

“That was wrong,” the news release stated. “It is the policy of Gilmer County and the Gilmer County Clerk’s Office that all people seeking services and doing business with the County will be treated courteously and with respect regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.”

The lawsuit, which was filed by Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Fairness West Virginia and the law firm Mayer Brown, sought damages for the emotional distress caused by Allen’s actions.

In addition to paying the couple $10,000, the county also agreed to require all officials and employees of the county commission and county clerk’s office to participate in a training program provided by Fairness West Virginia, an advocacy organization dedicated to the fair and equal treatment of LGBT West Virginians.

Lesbians like these two don’t need cash. They need to be sent to reeducation camps where they either disavow their ways or pay the appropriate legal penalty.

Jewish UCLA Researcher Studies White Nationalist Reactions to Nonwhite Ancestry

AARON PANOFSKY, UCLA RESEARCHER.

What would your reaction be if you took a DNA test and the results came back that said you had nonwhite ancestry. That describes Tara McCarthy, among other White Nationalists. She’s part Asian-Indian.

I grew up being told that we had Native American ancestry in my background, on my father’s side of the family. Who cares? I have no desire to obtain a DNA study. From the time I was two years old and saw pictures of Britain in a book, I’ve identified as English/British/whatever. It works for me.

But Stormfront members had a range of reactions to their news of nonwhite ancestors.

newsroom.ucla.edu

A new study by UCLA researchers reveals the range of reactions — from rejection to reinterpretation to acceptance — after white nationalists learn that DNA ancestry test results indicate they may not be as white or European as they previously thought.

The study, “When Genetics Challenges a Racist’s Identity: Genetic Ancestry Testing Among White Nationalists,” is the work of UCLA researchers Aaron Panofsky and Joan Donovan, who presented their findings at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association held Aug. 14, 2017, in Montreal, Canada.

Upon receiving genetic evidence of non-white or non-European ancestry, those posting online “expend considerable energy to repair identities by rejecting or reinterpreting genetic ancestry testing results,” said the researchers, who studied discussion threads on the topic posted on the white nationalist online forum Stormfront.

In their study, Donovan and Panofsky, an associate professor with appointments in Public Policy at UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, the Institute for Society and Genetics, and Sociology, looked at more than 3,000 posts in 70 discussion threads on topics related to “test reveals.” These included posts by individuals who revealed results of non-white/non-European ancestry on Stormfront, a website that requires members to be white or European with non-Jewish ancestry. Responses also included the comments on those test results.

Panofsky and Donovan, a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Society and Genetics, report that while ancestry tests promote “the capacity to reveal one’s genetic ties to ethnic groups, ancient populations and historical migrations, and even famous historical figures … this opportunity to ‘know thyself’ can come with significant risks.”

Panofsky points out that based on white nationalists’ responses to genetic information upon learning their test results, there is no reason to believe that they would give up their racial ideology, and, more importantly, that genetic information cannot be relied on to change the views of white nationalists.

In addition, Panofsky said that, as a group, white nationalists appear to have a combination of sophisticated and unsophisticated methods of interpreting the data from statistical and genetic viewpoints, as well as on their own historical reasoning or reinterpretation.

“In this framework, the repair strategy is not to reject scientific or historical knowledge, but to educate oneself to understand the construction of [genetic test] results and to explain those results in alternate terms,” the researchers conclude.

In parsing responses to genetic ancestry test results posted on Stormfront, Panofsky and Donovan created a “decision tree” consisting of “good news” responses, or confirmation of white identity, or “bad news,” revealing results of non-white or non-European ancestry.

“Good news” served a confirming purpose and was well-received, but “bad news” elicited responses of rejection of the test results. Alternatives to the rejected responses included championing traditional methods, citing family history or using a “mirror test,” whereby individuals evaluated their outward appearance as a gauge of racial identity.

“Many of the responses to bad news are about how to repair the damage, rather than latching onto the ideology of Stormfront,” Panofsky said. “Even though they have that idea of purity, they help people explain away or dismiss the result.”

The researchers also found that some who reject unfavorable genetic test results interpret them as the product of companies with an anti-white bias, or Jewish ownership “invested in sowing racial doubt and confusion among whites.” They also attribute a small percentage of non-white or non-European markers as being “part of a multicultural conspiracy,” according to the study.

Another way the posters dealt with bad news, Panofsky and Donovan reported, was to discount indications of non-white ancestry as a statistical error or “noise” to engage in “scientific reinterpretation of the results.”

The findings also indicate that white nationalists are using genetic ancestry test results to rethink “the boundaries of whiteness.” Panofsky and Donovan point out that a great deal of discussion on Stormfront focuses on “what are the genetic markers of legitimate whiteness or European-ness,” and how to think about white nationalism in an era of genetic ancestry testing.

None of the Stormfront responses are illogical or ill-conceived. Whiteness is a good thing that’s a complex product of DNA and self-awareness. Who would give up their whiteness because of a set of genes that no one really fully understands anyway.
