Sic semper cæcis

If you don't feel even the smallest touch of schadenfreude about this man's alleged murder, you're either a saint or a self-deluded SJW:
David Ruenzel knew, better than most, about the white privilege that killed him. As a writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, one of his favorite topics was rooting out racism. And how white racism is permanent. White racism is everywhere. And white racism explains everything.

This mantra of the Critical Race Theory and the Southern Poverty Law Center applied to all white people because, even if they were not personally cracking the whips, or breaking the skulls, white people benefited from a racist system that did all that — and a lot more.

Ruenzel was writing about white privilege for the Southern Poverty Law Center as far back as 1997 — long before it became the rage at college campuses, newsrooms, churches, high schools and even grade schools.

By the time of his death, Ruenzel had accumulated many of the trappings of the white privilege he exposed: The job. The home. The intact family. And most importantly in his case, white privilege endowed Ruenzel with an expectation of safety in the Oakland neighborhood where last week two black people are suspected of killing him.
One would like to imagine that the progressive white equalitarians would wake up before they get themselves, and large quantities of other people, killed, but the lesson of David Ruenzel informs us that we shouldn't count on it. It's rather like the aid worker who was raped in Haiti; not even a callous denial of her appeal to racial brotherhood and subsequent rape was enough to convince her that black skin does not render one morally unaccountable.

Listening to the equalitarians and taking them seriously is a very good way to get yourself beaten, raped, or killed. Because eventually, objective reality asserts itself, and it asserts itself all the more cruelly to those who willfully pay it no heed.

Speaking of cruelty, granted, it may be the artist in me, but I rather like to think that before he was gunned down, David Ruenzel explained to his killers, a little indignantly, that he was a writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center and that what they needed to understand that he was on their side. Of course, what he didn't understand, and now will never have the chance to understand, is that it doesn't matter.

Ironically, the only way David Ruenzel's death will have any meaning at all is if people reject his foolish philosophy as a result of it.

VD, maybe you've covered this as I've only maybe read about a third of a percent of things you've blogged on:
The cognitive dissonance/ schizophrenia in saying all men are equal, then creating the partitions by which one identity group are perpetually victimizing another. Hence they can "only be equal" if you forever address perceived inequality. Three groups are formed, the victim, victimizer, the "enlightened SJW".
It's neither the idealized blindfolded lady of justice, nor, the root Christian paradigm of America. Black means victim, white means victimizer, all liberals are just that much acquired insanity

They carry the burden of being wiser than the "children" in their charge (it used to be called, "the white man's burden) so securely, so confidently, so self-righteously, they probably regard Runzuel as a martyr! If not on a par with Christ, one of His disciples then.

No, you ignoramus, the differences are FAR from trivial. The genetic science clearly indicates that while humans are all the same species, we are different sub-species. You're declaring the equivalent of saying the differences between dog, wolf, and coyote are trivial.

Leave a baby alone with a wolf and you'll see how trivial those differences are. Mr. Ruenzel learned that those differences are not trivial, one hopes that you are a faster learner.

You know Clay a couple of/ few posts ago VD quoted an author looking at the sequence of civilizational decay and he cited replacement theology in his number one of causal factors. Water off the proverbial duck"s. Highly literate idiots? Just been musing over genetic entropy and generational accumulation of mutations. I'd never call people who haven't seen what I have stupid, even if I thought it.

Junk DNA contains information at multiple levels. It codes in more than one immediate language.

VD largely has his audience from arguing his points of view dialectically and rhetorically. So he's rare. So people are reading him even when they disagree with him. I read him similarly - not because i agree with him but because I want to see what his best arguments are.

Entropy increase is working on you as you age and generationally. I sub populations were exposed to higher rates of inbreeding I'd expect to see that. At the civilizational level one can take the degenerates and expose them to the best of civilizational push factors, truth, justice, worship, interdimensional contractual promissory notes, and get neuroplasticity latent potential changes - lowers the entropy like Mozart vs eminem. The gospel is organizing. Unbelievers are disorganizing. I expect VD didn't understand what he posted recently. IMHO. Patience, so they say.

Ruenzel did NOT have "philosophy". He had sophistry. He was a sophist, an ideologue but was a philosopher nor did he have a philosophy. Philosophy is the use of the Natural Law. Natural Law talks about race. Group Dynamics is part of the Natural Law. Nothing Ruenzel wrote about had anything to do with the Natural Law but its complete opposite.

It was His sophistry. Ruenzel is an ideologue. Ruenzel had his sophistry.

Generational increase in mutations is kept limited by the isolation of germline cells. In fact, even yeast keep their lineage free of the accumulated changes of age.

With respect to human variation, I am substantially different from my cousins. The supposition that all of us have an equal ability to think consciously on the timescale required to sustain a thriving civilization is unfounded. Rather, culling, in dangerous times, of those with the greatest time preference leaves the survivors to shape legal, cultural, and religious traditions that encourage eucivic behavior. Over time, the prosperity thise institutions facilitate undermines the whole edifice, a collapse occurs, and necessity again births virtue. Some peoples have longer periods of civilized prosperity, and others haven't really managed it yet.

Some of the last footage taken by Treadwell hours before his death includes video of a bear diving into the river repeatedly for a piece of dead salmon.

“Over the years I've examined and found a trait of sociopath in most liberals. They have this sadistic gratification in creating or fomenting social chaos and conflicts, then, presenting themselves as ‘above it all,’ they arrive to fix the problem they themselves caused or perpetuated. Think of it as mental illness. A Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome, but on a very large scale.”

Summation leftists are drama queens.

There is a huge silver lining here, with this "tragedy". SJWs may have a potential genetic predisposition for self destruction.

It's a fact. A profound, disturbing and yet pleasant fact.


I knew there was a scientific reason to outlaw hip-hop. I just knew it.

Too bad the authorities in Ferguson didn't know the power of a little Frankie Yankovic at 100 decibels.

Must've been this song that appalled them.

Isn't White privilege the same as blood libel?

"I rather like to think that before he was gunned down, David Ruenzel explained to his killers, a little indignantly, that he was a writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center and that what they needed to understand that he was on their side."

VD, this is EXACTLY what I thought when I learned this puke was a hack for the $PLC. On another web site, I commented that this sort of wannabe-Atticus-Finch posturing enrages your average 'hood-rat; they take it as the worst kind of clueless-SWPL condescension, and I can easily see it turning an ordinary mugging into a murder.

To, or for, the blind.

It's rather like the aid worker who was raped in Haiti

Amanda Kijera was no aid worker. She describes herself as "a progressive writer and activist in Haiti". In other words, a complete waste of protoplasm, with no redeeming features at all.

The irony of this SPLC hack offed by savages he spent a lifetime defending and empowering. Gotta love it.

"Science says that all humans are one species."

Science also says that chimpanzees are two species, even though the common chimp and the bonobo are fully interfertile and their genetic separation is less that half the distance between whites and blacks. Gorillas are half as diverse as chimps, yet science still divides them into two species.

So if you want to call Homo africanus a different species, there's plenty of scientific precedent for that. We should still treat them better than chimps, for the same reason we treat chimps better than lab rats and lab rats better than fruit flies.

David Ruenzel paid the eloi tax.

Liberals tend not to learn unless subjected to serious personal suffering. Even in such cases they often will not learn. However, some liberals are smarter than others. McGovern ran a hotel following his defeat in the 1972 election and came to understand why business people despise the government and liberals in general over the several years period he ran his hotel.
