Get Up, Stand Up All who cherish free expression, especially on campuses, must combat the growing zeal for censorship. By Heather Mac Donald

Where are the faculty? American college students are increasingly resorting to brute force, and sometimes criminal violence, to shut down ideas they don’t like. Yet when such travesties occur, the faculty are, with few exceptions, missing in action, though they have themselves been given the extraordinary privilege of tenure to protect their own liberty of thought and speech. It is time for them to take their heads out of the sand.
I was the target of such silencing tactics two days in a row last week, the more serious incident at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California, and a less virulent one at UCLA.
The Rose Institute for State and Local Government at Claremont McKenna had invited me to meet with students and to give a talk about my book, The War on Cops, on April 6. Several calls went out on Facebook to “shut down” this “notorious white supremacist fascist Heather Mac Donald.” A Facebook post from “we, students of color at the Claremont Colleges” announced grandiosely that “as a community, we CANNOT and WILL NOT allow fascism to have a platform. We stand against all forms of oppression and we refuse to have Mac Donald speak.” A Facebook event titled “Shut Down Anti-Black Fascist Heather Mac Donald” and hosted by “Shut Down Anti-Black Fascists” encouraged students to protest the event because Mac Donald “condemns [the] Black Lives Matter movement,” “supports racist police officers,” and “supports increasing fascist ‘law and order.’” (My supposed fascism consists in trying to give voice to the thousands of law-abiding minority residents of high-crime areas who support the police and are desperate for more law-enforcement protection.)

Consensus and Crisis

In popular forms of government, politics tends to coalesce around a set of issues that are debated in the public and in front of the public. There’s a framework within which these topics are debated and the political factions represent the positions on those topics. This framework is the consensus. A range of answers has been deemed acceptable and anything the lies outside that range is considered fringe or heretical. This is the natural response to the challenges faced by democratic political systems.
In the West, the political parties tended to coalesce around economic schools, like communists, various flavors of socialism and flavors of market socialism. These were in the range of the political consensus. Libertarianism has always been fringe in Europe and in America, communism was always a fringe position. The result is the main points of contention in political fights were over economic policy. So much so that social policy and foreign policy have often been framed in economic terms.
Globalism, which the political elites have long saw as a way to sew up political divides, not just within countries, but between countries, has actually fractured the political consensus in the West. Once the factions within the elite settled on an agreed upon economic policy, they needed something else to decorate their respective flags in order to distinguish one faction from the other. After all, if everyone in the political class agrees on the main topics, there’s no need for parties. Politics becomes a beauty pageant.

BERKELEY MAYOR EXPOSED AS MEMBER OF MILITANT ANTIFA GROUP THAT ORCHESTRATED RIOTS by Cassandra Fairbanks



Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin, who many have speculated was behind stand down orders to police during recent riots in the city, is a member of the Facebook group of far left militant organization, By Any Means Necessary (BAMN).

BAMN was named by the FBI in 2005 as thought to be involved in domestic terrorist activities, and have boasted that they  were the “organizers of Berkeley’s shutdown of white neo-fascist Milo Yiannopoulos.” 
BAMN is perhaps best known, however, for a 2016 incident in which they showed up to a rally held by the white-nationalist Traditionalist Workers Party outside the California state capitol building in Sacramento. The militant group was confrontational with the white-nationalists within minutes of arrival, and ten people were stabbed and hospitalized in a bloody fight. Police have verified through videos taken by members of the group, news organizations, and bystanders, that BAMN initiated the violence.
Falarco was caught on camera at the event repeatedly punching a man in the stomach and throwing him to the ground.

Argentina: A Mirror of Your Future by Gustavo Semeria

Villa31_3
How demographic change can destroy a country.
Argentina is a distant mirror that reflects what may be North America’s future. My country is a small-scale laboratory of the effects of migration: A suitable migration policy can transform a nation for the good; a wrong one spoils it.
Argentina became independent from Spain in 1816 just after Napoleos occupation of the Iberian Peninsula. After a period of struggle between caudillos, the country was unified with a constitution inspired, in part, by that of the United States. A generation of brilliant thinkers led by Juan Bautista Alberdi and Domingo Faustino Sarmiento saw European immigration as the key to modernity, and this was enshrined in Article 25: “The Federal Government will encourage European immigration; and may not restrict, limit nor tax in any way the entrance into Argentine territory of those foreigners, who have the purpose of working the land, improving industries, and introducing and teaching sciences and arts.”
To this end, President Nicolás Avellaneda (1837 – 1885) pressed for the Colonization and Immigration Law of 1876, which established immigrant recruiting agencies in the main cities of Europe. Qualified emigrants were offered third-class tickets on the steamships that ran from Genoa, Marseilles, and Naples to Buenos Aires. Newcomers were welcomed at the Hotel de Inmigrantes, and assigned jobs in the city or on farms in the interior. The architects of the “Great Immigration” made mistakes—little land was made available to newcomers, and many of them ended up in bad housing in the cities—but between 1880 and 1914 Argentina received more than six million Europeans, most of them from Italy, Spain, France, Germany, and Britain. In that very short period, Argentina went from being a colonial backwater to a First-World nation.
President Domingo Sarmiento (1811 – 1888), the seventh president of Argentina, was a personal friend of Ralph Waldo Emerson and of Horace Mann’s wife. Known as the Horace Mann of South America, he reduced illiteracy to a rate lower than in some European countries; by 1947, illiteracy in Argentina was only 13 percent. With Mrs. Mann’s help, Sarmiento imported the “65 Valliants,” a group of young women teachers from Boston who were willing to teach in the then far desert of South America. We Argentines will always be grateful to them for their pioneering efforts.

Why We FIGHT: Deception, Theatre & LIES

Hogwash 101 - Steve Sailer

American academia markets itself as progressive if not downright radical. For example, here’s a self-description by an assistant professor of Critical Identity Studies at Beloit College:
She intervenes in popular visual media like reality television to interrogate how time moves and for whom to catalog desire and identification as taxonomy and type. Her preferred gender pronouns are she/her.
Since the downfall of the Gestapo, nobody has treasured the verb “interrogate” as much as postmodern academics.
The Hitlerian vocabulary of Studies professors suggests that although we hear so much about the dangers of the “alt-right,” we ought to learn more about the “ctrl-left.”
The counterpart to all this policing of others’ expressions for the crime of offending one’s amour propre is self-obsession. The deadpan Twitter account New Real Peer Review passes on screenshots of actual published academic articles. A particularly comic genre is “autoethnography,” in which “researchers” tell their readers (if any) how they feel about things, such as:
Kari Lerum
This is an autoethnography about the role of nail salons in relation to my own evolving feminist and femme consciousness. Through a story of desire, grief, isolation, and recuperation, I explore the ways that the development of my sexual and gender identities relies on women’s intimacy within and across lines of commodification, race, class, and sexuality. In so doing, I attempt to reconcile my desire for high femme signifiers with working-class, anti-racist, and anti-colonialist solidarity, to articulate what I term a FemmeNist consciousness.

Hate crime hoax: Man poses as racist, mails threatening letters to community




An African American man pled guilty to posing as a white supremacist and "mailing threatening communications" to other minority residents in Knoxville, according to authorities on Thursday.
Justin Lamar Coleman was charged with mailing six hostile letters describing violent and disturbing acts to local African Americans from last July through December.
Under the guise of Jeff McCown, a Knox County auto shop owner whom he had an altercation with years earlier, Coleman targeted the daughter of Daryl Arnold, a senior pastor at Overcoming Believers Church. The letter included threats of rape and murder, as well as violence against her father.
Authorities also found an unsent letter addressed to Pastor Arnold, according to U.S. District Court records.

Why Handel’s “Messiah” Has Been Forgotten at Eastertime by Annie Holmquist

handel

The other day, I heard an announcer on a local classical radio station gently chide his listeners, saying, “It’s almost Easter, and I haven’t had one request from our audience for selections from Handel’s Messiah!”
For those who think of the Messiah as a Christmas tradition, this announcer’s request seems a bit odd. But historically speaking, he’s right on track. The Messiah was originally intended for Passion Week—the time in which Christians remember the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ—and was first performed shortly after Easter in 1742. Indeed, a much larger portion of the Messiah text focuses on Christ’s death and resurrection than his birth.
In Stories Behind the Great Traditions of Christmas, author Ace Collins further describes Messiah’s Easter connections:
By 1900, the Messiah was so closely linked to Easter that people began to expect to hear the oratorio each year. A performance of the Messiah was the surest way to fill up a church or a concert hall. In small English towns, as well as in large cities, the annual presentation of Handel’s work brought out throngs of people. It had become such a tradition that many could not imagine Easter without Handel’s Messiah.…

Betrayed

Admittedly, it is not that often that a subpar Zionistic Hollywood movie inspires me to read a 400-page book co-written by two less than literally gifted small town journalists, but such is certainly the case with the largely forgotten shit flick Betrayed (1988) directed by Greek-French auteur Costa-Gavras (ZHanna K.) and penned by exceedingly ethno-masochistic and seemingly spiritually castrated Hungarian-American screenwriter Joe Eszterhas (Basic InstinctShowgirls). Indeed, a fairly typical example of Hollywood raping facts and molding them to fit their own post-Trotskyite Zio-ganda agenda, the film—a virtual Gone with the Wind of Zionist produced neo-Nazis flicks—is loosely based on the thrilling real-life story of white nationalist martyr Robert Jay Mathews and his underground European-American revolutionary group Brüder Schweigen (aka Silent Brotherhood aka The Order) and their rather insanely ambitious attempt to rage war against the U.S. government and reclaim the United States for Europids. After initially watching Costa-Gavras' debut Hollywood feature, I was appalled by the film’s absurd distortions and decided to read The Silent Brotherhood: Inside America's Racist Underground (1989) by veteran Denver reporters Kevin Flynn and Gary Gerhardt so that I could at least learn the basic facts in regard to the rise and fall of Mathews and the Brüder Schweigen.  While I expected Mathews and his motley Männerbünde to be moronic Hitler fetishists and demented dope-addled criminals, The Silent Brotherhood revealed a truly tragic story about somewhat misguided yet hardly ignorant men with patriotic spirits comparable to America's founding fathers.  Although involved in rather ambitious bank robberies, counterfeiting operations, and political assassinations over a period of about a year between 1983 and 1984, most of the men in the Brüder Schweigen lacked any sort of criminal record and its member included mailmen, war veterans, former high school basketball stars, farmers, deep sea divers, college scholars, etc. In short, the admittedly quite bad ass bros of Brüder Schweigen were not brain-dead skinheads with shitty homemade tattoos that listened to third rate punk music, but largely likeable and respectable men that truly believed in what they were doing and, in some case, ultimately accepted death over defeat and perennial incarceration to cowardly snitching.

Prominent Democrats Call For Anti-War Congresswoman To Be Ousted From Office by Alex Pfeiffer

Top Democrats are not pleased that Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard pushed the U.S. to collect and release evidence from the scene of the chemical attack in Syria.
Gabbard visited Syria and met with President Bashar al-Assad in January and has been consistently cautious about American involvement in the Middle Eastern country. The Hawaii congresswoman said in a statement that the airstrikes on Syria were “short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaida and other terrorists, and a possible nuclear war between the United States and Russia.”
She also said she has not seen enough evidence that Assad was behind the chemical attack that led to the death of dozens of civilians. Gabbard said an investigation was necessary before responding, and that “if President Assad is found to be responsible after an independent investigation for these horrific chemical weapons attacks, I’ll be the first one to call for his prosecution and execution by the International Criminal Court.” U.S. officials have maintained Syria was responsible for the attack as radar showed Syrian warplanes in the area during the incident.

Every time John McCain makes secret trips to Syria, chemical weapon attacks follow by Alex Christoforou

McCain ISIS

John McCain made a "secret" Syria visit on May 27, 2013. The Ghouta, Syria false flag attack took place on 21 August 2013.

Senator John McCain made a secret trip to a Kurdish-held region in northern Syria the week of February 20th, 2017, to speak with US military officials, rebel fighters, and leaders in the region.
McCain spokeswoman, Julie Tarallo, confirmed that McCain made this secret trip, calling it a “valuable opportunity to assess dynamic conditions on the ground in Syria and Iraq.”

JEREMY ENGLAND, THE MAN WHO MAY ONE-UP DARWIN By Meghan Walsh



On a sunny afternoon, at a bustling cafe less than a mile from Stanford University’s campus, near Palo Alto, and more than 5,000 miles from his home, an assistant professor from MIT is telling me about science. Very advanced science. His name is Jeremy England, and at 33, he’s already being called the next Charles Darwin.
Say what?
In town to give a lecture, the Harvard grad and Rhodes scholar speaks quickly, his voice rising a few pitches in tone, his long-fingered hands making sudden jerks when he’s excited. He’s skinny, with a long face, scraggly beard and carelessly groomed mop of sandy brown hair — what you might expect from a theoretical physicist. But then there’s the street-style Adidas on his feet and the kippah atop his head. And the fact that this scientist also talks a lot about God.

How I Became Conservative

Asian

It was a slow, reluctant process.

I started out liberal: the child of Asian immigrants, both parents always voting Democratic.
Then, at college one day, I was sipping coffee in the cafeteria, which featured an enormous glass window. Suddenly, my reverie was broken by the crash of that window being smashed. It was broken deliberately by a mob of black students carrying signs such as “Free Housing for Bridge Students.” “Bridge” was a program that admitted blacks and Hispanics to my prestigious public university with far lower grades and test scores than those required of Asians and whites. That struck me as an example of biting the hand that feeds you: increased entitlement rather than gratitude and subsequent hard work. It was also my first awareness of redistribution, since my parents’ taxes would be paying for the damage. My dismay accelerated when, in my classes, it was clear that most of the black students were grossly underprepared yet felt entitled to ask question after question, slowing the class down.
The next prod toward a realistic view of race occurred when—still as a liberal—I took a job running drug-prevention groups in a largely non-white high school. A number of the kids were very undisciplined—running around the classroom—and when I firmly but calmly asked them to sit down, I was met with such responses as, “Make me! You ain’t my father.” I could not believe that such behavior was caused by the explanations they taught me in college: “the legacy of slavery,” “income inequality,” or “white privilege.”
I quit in shame because of my inability to control the class, let alone get them to slow their drug use; by high school, they already were well beyond experimentation. But with liberal ideology so firmly implanted in my brain, I mainly blamed myself and decided that what I needed was more education, so I got a PhD in education from an Ivy League university.

Gender Expert: Teens Are Trying to Be Transgender Because It’s Trendy

One of Australia’s top experts on gender has raised concerns that children and teens are overdiagnosed as transgender.
Adolescents are “trying out being transgender” to stand out or gain attention from their peers, psychiatrist Stephen Stathis told the Courier Mail last week. “One said to me, ‘Dr. Steve … I want to be transgender, it’s the new black,” he recalled.
Stathis
, who runs Brisbane’s Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, said a gender dysphoria diagnosis will be given to only a tiny minority of the 180 minors who seek treatment at his clinic this year.
A gender dysphoria diagnosis is the first step for a transgender person to begin transitioning. Though children under 18 cannot get gender-reassignment surgery in Australia, they can receive hormonal therapy or treatment to suppress puberty.
In an interview last month, Stathis said that up to three-fourths of young patients who “present with gender variant interests and behaviors, or are gender diverse” will outgrow the feelings and don’t need treatment.
“You might get a six- or seven-year-old girl wanting to dress as a boy,” he said. “She may even say she wants to be a boy. When she hits puberty, she says, ‘No, I’m just a girl who likes to do boy things.”
Stathis’s clinic recently received a $1.117 million federal grant to cut wait times for patients seeking gender-related medical care.

COPS: Black man firebombed immigrant’s store, authored note from ‘White America’


A hate crime allegedly perpetrated by “white America” turned out to be hoax perpetuated by a black criminal with an ax to grind against President Trump.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police arrested 32-year-old Curtis Flournoy on Sunday for firebombing the immigrant-operated Central Market in east Charlotte in what they’re characterizing as a pre-planned hate crime, according to The Charlotte Observer.
Investigators allege Flournoy threw a rock through the store’s window last Thursday, followed by a flaming object that started a blaze at the store owned by Indian immigrants.
A typed letter left behind read:
Our newly elected president Donald Trump is our nation builder for white America. You all know that, we want our country back on the right track. We need to get rid of Muslims, Indians and all immigrants. Specially, we don’t want business run by refugees and immigrant any more.
We are ready to wake up some of our great state including North Carolina and we will take care of the country. Immigrants and refugee are taking our job, doing business and leaving us standard. So, you are not allowed to do business any more.
We know you are one and many of other immigrant doing business here. This is our warning. Leave the business and go back to where you came from.
If you don’t follow this warning then we are not responsible for the torture starting now.
God Bless America …
White America
“Kamal Dhimal, the owner, is from Bhutan,”WBTV reports. “He says he became a U.S. citizen last year, and is shaken up by the incident.”
“There is no word to express how I am feeling,” Dhimal told WSOC shortly after the incident. “It makes me scared for the refugee and immigration.”

Blacks in St. Louis March Against Violence Again, But Still Find Time to Blame White People for Their Troubles

Bell Curve City: St. Louis, Ferguson, and the Unmentionable Racial Realities That Shape Them was one of my favorite books to write. 


The corrosive, civilization destroying consequences of Section 8 vouchers are truly on display in the St. Louis metropolitan region because of the state of Missouri's unique demographics: for the most part, it still resembles the traditional breakdown of the USA, with majority white population and a regrettable black population never repatriated back to Africa via the American Colonization Society. 

The consequences of our ancestors folly in failing to complete the mission of the American Colonization Society are catastrophic, sadly. Bell Curve City: St. Louis, Ferguson, and the Unmentionable Racial Realities That Shape Them outlines them in uncompromising detail. 

But spending any amount of time regretting the indecisive nature of our forefathers in fully staffing Liberia with every freed black from the United States of America is an unwise investment of our finite moments left on earth. 

What we must do is paint an accurate picture of what we have lost because of this failure of nerve to fulfill the destiny of our great Founding Fathers, who failed to delineate the racial nature of citizenship into the United States of America by a mere year (seek out the Naturalization Act of 1790 as a reference to who was worthy of the franchise). 

What have lost, you ask? 

The civilization our ancestors attempted to build for their posterity. [Hundreds march against violence and crime in St. Louis, KSDK.com, 3-25-17]:
Hundreds of people participated in a rally and march against violence and crime Saturday in North St. Louis. 
Organizer James Clark says Better Family Life, Inc. planned the event several months ago. However, he says a shooting that left a teenager dead and six others hurt Friday on the 5100 block of Palm Street underscores the reason they marched Saturday.

Jared Kushner Is Sabotaging The Trump Administration



What is Jared Kushner even doing anywhere near the White House? No one voted for Jared Kushner. No one believed that he would have any role in the administration. When Trump was on the campaign trail, he went out of his to portray his opponents as “puppets” of Goldman Sachs. After he won the election, he picked Gary Cohn, the president of Goldman Sachs, to be his topic economic adviser because he is Jared Kushner’s friend and was able to worm his way into the administration:
“It’s only been a few months, but it feels like forever ago that Steve Bannon told New York Magazine that he had “bonded” with Jared Kushner, who “really gets this grassroots, populist movement in a huge way.”

How do we know poisons are tasteless and odorless?



Dear Cecil:
The recent dispatch of Kim Jong-nam by VX poisoning is all over the news at the moment, and reports invariably describe VX as odorless and tasteless. How would anybody know what a substance this toxic tastes or smells like, short of a heroic self-sacrifice by the assessor? Even inhaling this stuff seems foolhardy to me, let alone voluntarily giving it a lick.
Cecil replies:
Surely, Mike, you’ll recall the first principle of toxicology, distilled from writings of the 16th-century medical pioneer Paracelsus: "Sola dosis facit venenum,” or “The dose makes the poison." Inhaled or ingested in great enough amounts, the idea being, any substance will take you down, including necessities of life like water and oxygen. Conversely, your body can process nearly anything in sufficiently small quantities and keep on kicking. Even an encounter with the notorious nerve agent VX can be survived, though I can’t discourage this kind of field research strongly enough.

Why Subaru Thinks Puppies are the Same as Babies By R. J. Moeller

Despite its perception as being the “progressive” car company alternative, Subaru’s latest television and online ads for its 2017 Impreza suggest the company has officially joined the ranks of businesses that are shamelessly willing to manipulate consumers by deploying puppies and babies in their advertisements:
While the ad might seem harmless at first glance, even touching, its underlying message is not. The ad equates having a child with rescuing a dog, interspersing scenes of new parents with their baby (such as the heartwarming and politically correct image of a mom returning to work in her Subaru while Dad stays home with the baby) with scenes of new pet owners having special moments with their puppy. It ends with the two couples pulling up alongside each other at a stop light; the dog and child look at each other knowingly, and the narrator intones that Subaru is the car for you “no matter what road you’re on. . .”
The ad reminded me of a provocative question that nationally-syndicated radio show host Dennis Prager often asks his audiences: If your family dog and a total (human) stranger were both drowning, and you only had time to save one or the other, which mammal would you choose?

Why are they gunning for Gorsuch? By William Murchison

An uncomplimentary picture takes shape in the mind: the Senate's Democratic minority (save for a higher-minded handful) standing in a row, thumbs affixed to noses, fingers waving provocatively in the air, mouths emitting a rude sound commonly known as "the raspberry." Think we're going to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court?! Think we're going to apply brains and reasoning power to the defense of constitutional liberty?! Think we're going to behave like adults?! Adults, for crying out loud?!
Everybody with a brain cell in gear understands the frequent ugliness of politics. Politics at bottom is about power—the power to tell others what we're going to do and what we're not. That inescapable consideration renders the whole business contentious and, more than occasionally, mean and lowdown.
The Gorsuch "controversy"—which isn't a controversy based on real differences of legitimate opinion, else the superbly qualified Gorsuch would be confirmed hands-down—illustrates, largely enough for an IMAX screen, the mean and lowdown side of the political power struggle.
Democrats have no more cause to filibuster Gorsuch than they have to strip Malia Obama of U.S. citizenship. They desire, mainly, to give Donald Trump their version of the bird—for offenses having nothing to do with the Gorsuch nomination.
Oh, yes, there's the pretend "issue" of how the Republicans denied a hearing to President Barack Obama's nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the high court. They did deny such a hearing, for reasons that represent how morally lost our politics have become; to wit, Garland's confirmation (however welcome it might have been at another time) would have cemented the ascendancy of the court's left-to-liberal bloc. That would have crushed Republican hopes for neutralizing the court's growing power to continue legislating in an unanswerable way, removed from redress and accountability.
The Republican refusal to consider Garland's nomination, near the end of Obama's term, was rough but never mean stuff. It signaled the expected birth of a chance to put on the court someone of conservative kidney; then it drew renewed notice to the once unthinkable burgeoning of the court's role as Olympian arbiter of everything, telling the peasants what they were to do, like it or not. For which lamentable state of affairs blame attaches chiefly to the judicial "progressives" Senate Democrats want on the high court, rather than the likes of Neil Gorsuch.

The Real Unmaskers. Independent bloggers and social-media voices are scooping the mainstream media. By Aaron M. Renn

Image result for The Real Unmaskers Independent bloggers and social-media voices are scooping the mainstream media.
The news this week that former national security advisor Susan Rice likely requested the “unmasking” of Donald Trump-related names in intelligence materials promises to upend the narrative about spying and collusion that has obsessed media circles for months. But just as startling as any revelations about illicit domestic political espionage is the story of who broke the news and how: independent writer Mike Cernovich on his Twitter account@cernovich.
Just a week after Cernovich was the main subject of a 60 Minutes report on “fake news,” he took to Twitter and unloaded some real news: “BREAKING NEWS! Susan Rice requested unmasking of incoming Trump administration officials.” The tweet received 6,900 retweets, a level comparable to some of President Trump’s own. The next day Eli Lake wrote about the story for Bloomberg in more detail, breaking it widely into the major media—though some outlets like CNN have declined to cover it, labeling it a “distraction.”
How did an independent person working at home in Southern California, completely outside the traditional media ecosystem, manage to get such a scoop?
Mike Cernovich is by no means the first media outsider to break a major new story. The formative event in the history of new media was Matt Drudge’s revelation of Monica Lewinsky’s affair with President Bill Clinton in January 1998. Drudge went on to build the Drudge Report into one of the planet’s most-trafficked websites, which functions today as an aggregator of links, expressing its right-leaning viewpoint through a juxtaposition of headlines. The earlier years of Internet political commentary were heavily identified with conservative bloggers, including Instapundit and Power Line—voices viewed mostly with disdain by elite media representatives.

Insufferable Brown-nosing SJW Asian Tiger Scion Rides #BlackLivesMatter from Princeton Day School to Stanford By STEVE SAILER

One trend we’ve been tracking at iSteve recently is Tiger Children taking over the social justice jihadi racket. You might think that just because you are poor and black that you’d get a leg up in the struggle for, say, a leftist NGO job, but … look out! The hardest-charging immigrants are coming from 10,000 miles away to outhustle you for your black privilege. These well-fed scions of Asia’s upper classes just want it all more than some poor African-American kid from the slums and they’re willing to be the most insufferable brown-nosers ever to get their hands on some juicy black privilege.
They.Have.No.Shame.

Living Large No Longer - Steve Sailer

Just as the 21st century has witnessed the paradox of the rhetoric of white privilege and the reality of white death, we’ve also seen increasing black privilege, but with the benefits flowing mostly to the whitest of blacks. The ongoing flight from white helps those blacks who are almost but not quite white, such as former national security adviser Susan Rice and her affirmative-action-eligible children.
White elites are happy to promote black privilege because they don’t see many American blacks as being anything other than token competition for their children at getting the really good jobs. For example, in 2016, more than a half century after the political triumph of civil rights and in a year in which the legal profession donated 28 times more money to Hillary than to Trump, only 1.81 percent of law-firm partners were black.
Far more salient competitive threats for hereditary white elites are Asians and, most important, the white masses.
African-American culture is spectacularly successful at producing sports and entertainment celebrities, but depressingly dysfunctional at uplifting the black masses and making them competitive. Therefore, despite growing demand for African-Americans to fill set-aside jobs, ever fewer typical black Americans are up to the minimum demands of analytical jobs.
Thus, the roles as spokesmodels for African-Americans are increasingly being filled by an odd assortment of immigrants and Americans with at least one white parent.
After eight years and 333 rounds of golf by our recent Honolulu preppy president you might think we’d start to get the joke. But instead the more the evidence piles up, the less we are willing to notice it.

Crime Is the New Black Entitlement By Colin Flaherty

Crime is the new black entitlement.
As long as black people are permanent victims of relentless white racism, cops should not chase them, juries should not convict them, judges should not sentence them, schools should not punish them, and white victims should not complain about the black crime and violence so wildly out of proportion. 
This is what a growing number of lawmakers, professors and, of course, reporters are prescribing as a way to “improve the way our system serves justice.”
The latest came on NPR a few days ago when Georgetown Law professor and former federal prosecutor Paul Butler broke it down for the racially unenlightened:
“If you go to criminal court in D.C., you would think that white people don’t commit crimes,” Butler said. “White people don’t use drugs, they don’t get into fights, they don’t steal, because all you see are African American people.”
Before you pack your child off to Georgetown Law school -- or if you usually do not believe something too ridiculous to be true -- you might want to hear the distinguished professor wax at length on this video: Racial Jury Nullification at Georgetown Law.
One group of “African American people” Butler will never see in a D.C. court are the black people who beat the white husband of an NPR executive into a bloody, broken mess on the D.C. Metro line. You can find the details here from my account at the American Thinker, but not from NPR, which never covered it. NPR Another Victim of Black Violence and Denial.
