In this ‘pilgrims=refugees’ meme Europeans are just immigrants

who came to the singular, utopic Native State to fuck it up.
Not settlers who built a country while fighting many different separate, warring Indian nations, and creating their own country in the process. But if you take this leftist analogy at face value, then the lesson is that non-Arabs will be slowly rubbed-out into obscurity through years of combat and treachery until they exist politically only in state-subsidized enclaves with maybe the self-determination to slaughter and eat a pig when the rest of the country can’t or won’t. Why is this an argument for mass immigration? -- - STREET CARNAGE

I wonder how many American refugees Planned Parenthood killed today on the border between the womb and the world.

The envelope please:

From Oct. 1, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2013, Planned Parenthood performed 327,653 abortions. Over the course of those 365 days (or 8,760 hours), that averages out to 898 abortions per day and 37 abortions per hour. -- CNS News

The insistent demand for an endless flow of Third World immigrants to the West goes well beyond cheap labor for the rich. It has become a mass psychosis.

Why should we act as if our cultures are better than those that haven’t made advanced scientific discoveries, such as that women are human beings?
That would be “xenophobic”! Successful countries must allow themselves to be overrun by backward cultures so that no country thinks it’s better than another. This psychosis runs so deep that even a father who was with his 12-year-old son at the Bataclan theater during the attack refused to notice anything distinctive about the shooters. Asked to describe one assailant’s face on CNN, the man replied, “He looked like a young fellow.” He was young! Fantastic — bring the police sketch artist! When the Third World Attacks | Human Events

Black Friday is part of the dark void at the heart of contemporary America.
Every year it seems the advertisements creep in earlier and earlier, and our “holidays” come to resemble more of an all-day advertising pitch than a day of rest and reflection.

Untangling the Tale of the Seven Sutherland Sisters and Their 37 Feet of Hair


Sarah, the oldest Sutherland sister, only had 3 feet of thick, wavy hair, the shortest hair of the group.
But when the sisters posed for photo shoots, generally, Sarah would sit and others would bend their waists so that it seemed that all seven had hair that brushed the ground. Victoria had the longest, a full 7 feet from the top of her head to the ends. When she let it down, it would drag behind her. Naomi's braid was four inches thick, and when it was undone, she could cover her whole body with her magnificent mane, which was 5 feet long. Mary, the youngest, was mentally unstable her whole life, and some doctors and preachers went as far as blaming her 6 feet of very heavy, dark hair for pulling on her head. | Collectors Weekly

It’s not us, it’s them. The Muslim world is afflicted with a sickness, a pathology.

We can continue to believe that we have the power, through our actions, to eradicate Muslim extremism.
We can continue to buy that line even in the face of decades of evidence to the contrary. We can continue to remain blind and deaf to the fact that there’s no action the West can take that hasn’t already been blamed for “radicalizing” Muslims. We’re told that we radicalized them by engaging in “nation building” in Iraq (“it’s our fault; we meddled in their internal affairs”), but we’re also told we radicalized them by not engaging in nation building after helping the Afghans defeat the Soviets (“it’s our fault; we just walked away without meddling in their internal affairs”). We’re told we radicalized them by attempting to remove a dictator by force (Iraq ’03) and by sanctions (Iraq in the ’90s), but we’re also told we radicalized them by not attempting to remove a dictator (“they hate us because for decades we backed Mubarak!”). We’re told we radicalize them domestically via intrusive government policies that “harass” their communities, but we’re also told we radicalize them by leaving their communities completely alone (“the Muslim slums of France are hotbeds of extremism due to years of government neglect!”). We’re told it’s all about the West’s support for Israel, even as Muslim terrorists attack nations that are hostile to Israel. We’re told it’s not about religion, merely foreign policy, even though the Muhammad cartoons led to protests throughout the Muslim world that were larger and more violent than any protests about Western foreign policy.

Abolish the FDA; take whatever drugs you want and if you die, we throw you in a ditch.
Remove the warning tags from mattresses. Get rid of speed limits, DUI laws, handicapped parking, movie ratings, the lot of it. Those things create a mentality that destroys civilizations because they create an intermediary in place of reality. People no longer worry about the consequences of their actions, but whether those actions are legal.

Hanging San Francisco’s status on its supposed cultural heft, as so many try to do, is more problematic still.

The art scene, a self-conscious copy of New York’s, is a joke.
Its culinary renown is derivative of nearby towns (“California Cuisine” was born across the Bay in Berkeley), and for at least 20 years Northern California’s best restaurants have been in the suburbs and the wine country. The City by the Bay can claim one genuinely topflight asset: the second-best opera company in the United States. The rest of its cultural attractions are no better and some a good deal worse—I’m looking at you, de Young fine arts museum, with your cotton-candy collection in that gulag-chic monstrosity—than comparable institutions in second- and third-tier Eastern and Midwestern cities.

Dirge in Woods by George Meredith

A wind sways the pines,
         And below
Not a breath of wild air;
Still as the mosses that glow
On the flooring and over the lines
Of the roots here and there.
The pine-tree drops its dead;
They are quiet, as under the sea.
Overhead, overhead
Rushes life in a race,
As the clouds the clouds chase;
         And we go,
And we drop like the fruits of the tree,
         Even we,
         Even so.

What could possibly go wrong?

On Tuesday night, Nov. 24, Putin made his next move in the ramped-up chess match between the US and Russia in Syria.
The Russian general staff announced that the missile cruiser Moskva, one of the largest warships in the world, was ordered to move closer to the Syrian coast opposite the port of Latakia, near the Turkish border, and to “destroy any target posing danger.” The USS Harry S. Truman carrier with strike force is on its way to the Mediterranean, having sailed from the US on Nov.16. The Truman will join the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, whose planes started bombing ISIS targets in Iraq on Nov. 23. If Obama orders the Truman to enter the Syrian theater, there will be two warships from NATO member states facing Russian naval forces off the Syrian coast, led by the missile carrier Moskva.

"We have long been recording the movement of a large amount of oil and petroleum products to Turkey
from ISIS-occupied territories. This explains the significant funding the terrorists are receiving. Now they are stabbing us in the back by hitting our planes that are fighting terrorism. This is happening despite the agreement we have signed with our American partners to prevent air incidents, and, as you know, Turkey is among those who are supposed to be fighting terrorism within the American coalition." - - Meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan

The nine known nuclear powers have collectively manufactured approximately 100,000 warheads.

The bulk of these have degraded over time or been decommissioned.
Most are secure and accounted for, but many are not, and no reliable warhead inventory exists among the established nuclear-weapons states, rogue aspirants, shoe-box countries, and terrorist groups. Untracked fissionable material from the former Soviet Union alone would be enough for the construction of a large number of weapons, and—legitimately or otherwise—new fissile material is created every day. Almost half a century ago, Israel, with a GNP of $3.3 billion and a population of two and a half million, created a nuclear weapon even before it produced its own jet aircraft. Were certain and universal abolition to be achieved, it could be secretly negated by manufacture. And as for covert retention, an average American house is big enough to hold an arsenal sufficient to control an otherwise nuclear-disarmed world.

Top 5 Things Westerners Need to Embrace About Islamic Culture

Islamists have a lotta good points and it would be very Islamophobic to ignore them.
Here are the top five they bring to the culture table.

1.) Women Suck: Chicks need to understand they are useless deadweight—they should be seen (in a burka), not heard, subjugated, beaten, and raped at any time. The only good thing a chick can possibly do is birth a jihadist who will further marginalize women. How is this not common sense?

2.) Jews Suck: Sorry, I meant, “Joooz Suck.” Have you seen the price of those kosher hotdogs? Only a covetous Hebraic Zionist could live with that inflated price on his conscience.

3.) FGM Rocks: That stands for “Female Genital Mutilation.” Slicing off a woman’s clitoris is the best thing a man can do. It removes the idea that a woman can have pleasure from sex. She won’t cheat. Why would she? It robs a chick of her most intimate desires. Genius!

4.) The West Sucks: Of course we do—even though ISIS relies on Twitter and Facebook to gain recruits—Freedom of Expression is retarded. I mean, freedom is just ridiculous and Islam has a good cure for it. They will kill you. I think that whenever you place your racist hand over your racist heart and sing the “Star-Spangled Banner,” you should be subject to Hate Crime legislation.

5.) Gays Suck: ISIS throws gays off of tall buildings. I’m pretty sure that flaming gays may float, but I doubt they can fly. This is just Islam conducting a scientific experiment and we should all be thankful. Surprisingly, gays are like cats, and when thrown down from 20 floors up, they always land on their feet.

The real “trigger warning” comes from the guns of those who shot peaceful people in Paris.

The “safe spaces” that really matter now, after Paris and Mali, are the concert halls, restaurants, cinemas, hotels, workplaces and transportation systems of the free world.
The ISIS-held towns and villages in the Middle East need to be liberated so that they might be safe for families to live in peacefully. The real “trigger warning” comes from the guns of those who shot peaceful people in Paris.

Safe spaces are designed to blot our reality and replace it with a giant neurotic and morally flatulent human mind.

Safe spaces must be destroyed Safe spaces are solipsism bubble zones
where people can go if they fear someone might mention reality. In safe spaces, people can bloviate on about their ideological ideas without being contradicted by someone who has noticed flaws in their narrative, i.e. reality peeking through the carefully-constructed artifice. Safe spaces are designed to blot our reality and replace it with a giant neurotic and morally flatulent human mind.

Ethics from the Barrel of a Gun


The first and most important of these lessons is this: it all comes down to you.
No one's finger is on the trigger but your own. All the talk-talk in your head, all the emotions in your heart, all the experiences of your past — these things may inform your choice, but they can't move your finger. All the socialization and rationalization and justification in the world, all the approval or disapproval of your neighbors — none of these things can pull the trigger either. They can change how you feel about the choice, but only you can actually make the choice. Only you. Only here. Only now. Fire, or not?

A second is this: never count on being able to undo your choices.
If you shoot someone through the heart, dead is dead. You can't take it back. There are no do-overs. Real choice is like that; you make it, you live with it — or die with it.

A third lesson is this: the universe doesn't care about motives.
If your gun has an accidental discharge while pointed an unsafe direction, the bullet will kill just as dead as if you had been aiming the shot. I didn't mean to may persuade others that you are less likely to repeat a behavior, but it won't bring a corpse back to life. - - Eric Raymond

There are many kinds of shark, some of which (like Sufis) are habitually peaceful;


but most sharks, from viviparous birth, are endowed with a system of respiration that requires them to ceaselessly swim forward.
Stall, or push them backwards, and they asphyxiate. Their aggressive hunting customs are of a piece, reflecting this “progressive” need.

Sharks are sharks and will be, whether from the East, or from the West. Who am I to judge their nature? But it is not their nature that I oppose. Rather, it is the idea that we should keep backing off, so their comfort zones will not be impeded, when some kind of wall would be much more effective.
