"Those who hate you will rule over you"

I fail to see how encouraging African aliens to rule over white Americans is going to reduce racial strife. Or work any better than it has in Zimbabwe.
Kulane, a 32-year-old graduate of St. John’s University, is one of two Somali council candidates this year, marking the first time that Somali-American citizens have filed for city election here. A third is running for school board. By all accounts, it’s a significant step in this central Minnesota town of about 65,000, which has had a history of cultural tension with the immigrant group.

“It’s a sign of the times,” said Stephen Philion, professor of sociology at St. Cloud State University and chair of the nonprofit Greater Minnesota Worker Center. “They’ve organized the way that other [immigrant] groups previously have organized. Now they’re looking for a seat at the table … They’re a group that should no longer be taken as outsiders. They are St. Cloud.”

Philion said the racial hostility they faced may have had unintended consequences of giving the Somali community “a greater sense of commitment to fighting for political power.”

Kulane, who has lived in the city’s Ward 1 since 2006, is careful not to campaign on issues of diversity.... The racial strife dates to as early as 2002, a few years after Somalis began moving to the area in greater numbers.
A significant step to be sure. But not for the better. I wonder how it is that people from a notoriously failed state are suddenly deemed worthy of political leadership in the United States due to nothing more than the miracle of geographic translocation. And keep in mind that for the most part, alien refugees are the losers of the wars in their homelands; the USA is actually the recipient of the least capable parties. They were outsmarted by barbarian warlords running a Third World failed state, they've done nothing but live off welfare ever since, and now they're going to run things in the West?

Then again, if the people of Saint Cloud are dumb enough to a) permit themselves to be invaded by Somalis and b) actually elect them to positions of leadership, they will deserve to dwell in the New Mogadishu that will result.

It's increasingly looking like we may not make it until 2033 before the violence starts. If one can't escape the alien invasion in St. Cloud, Minnesota, then it can no longer be escaped and five decades of retreat from the inner cities has ceased to be an option. Considering that Americans were willing to kill hundreds of thousands of people to keep French children from growing up in German-occupied France, I cannot imagine what they will be willing to do in order to prevent their children and grandchildren from growing up in African-occupied America.

The Baby Boomers won't do anything, of course, because they collectively don't give a damn about succeeding generations. But GenX does and will.

As predicted by Strauss and Howe.

All that needs to happen is for the Boomers to fade and for (mainly white) Millennials to finally realize that their wishy-washy anti-conflict egalitarian multi-kulti kumbaya bullshit is... bullshit, and for nought, and then to get angry. Until those two things happen, GenX is mostly pragmatic enough to know that they are on the short end of the demographic stick, and will just wait until enough momentum builds.

"It's increasingly looking like we may not make it until 2033 before the violence starts"

Frequent reader and rare poster here. I don't think its going to take another 20 years before SHTF, either. How much longer? Its like calling the top of a bubble, or even calling that we are IN a bubble, more art than science. Anybody who called the tech bubble or the housing bubble for what it was (at the time) was labeled an incompetent or a complete nutjob... until those bubbles burst. (not to blow my horn, but I did call the tech bubble and housing bubble).

Likewise, we are currently involved in SEVERAL bubbles. Immigration bubble. Political correctness bubble. Financial bubble. Government bloat bubble. Population bubble (almost entirely 3rd world). Etc... Etc... Etc...

For instance, how many more unproductive poor people can we afford? We are racking up a trillion a year in debt feeding them NOW, how much longer can we continue to import them? To allow them to breed uncontrollably? That alone could break the system in a few years. That's not even getting into the fact that at least some of them want to lop the head of anyone who doesn't believe in their imaginary friend.

@dw @TheExpat

GenX and (to a lesser extent) Millennials have the advantage in that the liberals who would have borne their liberal counterparts were using birth control. With the Boomers, that wasn't happening, which is why there are so many more Boomer libtards than GenX libtards.

There are more Millennial libtards than GenX ones simply because some liberal Boomer women listened to their biological clocks and had some liberal kids, which is why you hear Millennials bleat on about faggot marriage and weed legalization, but that's simply a dead-cat bounce as far as liberal demographics are concerned.

Considering that Americans were willing to kill hundreds of thousands of people to keep French children from growing up in French-occupied Germany, I cannot imagine what they will be willing to do in order to prevent their children and grandchildren from growing up in African-occupied America.

But why wouldn't we just go the way of South Africa or Zimbabwe? White people lost or are losing there in an ongoing ethnic clensing. I think (or would like to think) that the answer is just that those countries had the civilized world against them - because the white world was and still is in the grip of an vibrancy delusion. If that delusion goes away, maybe other countries will have a better shot. But will that actually happen?

The other skeptic: "In a democratic society, demographics is destiny. If you are not going to have more children than other groups you are screwing your descendants."

White women cannot outbreed the Third World.

Open the floodgates and force assimilation (by chasing down white flight and integrating neighborhoods that are "too white") and it is all over.

Only territory held exclusively by whites, exclusively for whites, holds the prospect of whites continuing to thrive despite being outnumbered.

This is not a comment on whether "retreat and separate" is the right strategy or whether "sea to shining sea" is the only way to go.

But "let the whole world come, we'll still outbreed them" isn't an option.

And it wouldn't be, even if the ykw weren't actively shaping white culture and laws to suppress white fertility and subsidize non-white fertility, while promoting assimilation for whites and empowerment for non-whites.

The propaganda from Hollywood has shifted from almost all softly undermining white liberal guilt pap to harder messages aimed at non-whites. The new generation is taking in Machete and Django Unchained and "get whitey!"

The idea that it's time to re-focus from teaching whites to betray whites and submit to non-whites, and re-orient to teaching non-whites about the coolness of killing off whites, makes sense when you consider that non-white births now outnumber white births in America, and whites are already the minority in young age cohorts.

But what makes sense numerically doesn't always work practically.

It would be helpful if younger whites would start to realize with adequate seriousness that neither Hollywood nor the people that run it are really their friends.

Anyway, I still think more years of education are needed. It takes time to take this stuff in and internalize it, and more time to build the new habits of mind that will be needed for serious opposition.

c) the fact that Millennials supported Obama 60% to 36%

d) the fact that the family unit among X'ers and Millennials is almost dead, and when Boomers are gone, the family will consist of a loose group of dependent children, living off whatever assets were left to them by their boomer parents/grandparents?

e) the fact that X'ers and Millennials are the fattest, most diabetic, physically weakest, most addicted, unemployable, narcissistic, distracted, diseased generation the world has ever known?

Yep, this observations are all true, and they point out how the tipping point is most likely to come about.

1) HR is a corporate creature, and corporations already favor minorities and other sub-optimal employees. So corporations are struggling (because they hire the wrong people) at the same time the self-employed competents are growing (because they have limited other options). The SJW wield their power in a doomed segment of the economy.

2) The idiot overreach of calling everyone a racist and misogynist means no one outside their circle thinks they should be taken seriously. The rest of society is adopting Churchill's diplomacy towards them - saying 'nice doggie' while looking for a stick. I expect them to be crushed quite thoroughly the first time they show any significant vulnerability.

3) If Vibrants are rioting, beheading folks, and otherwise making daily life physically dangerous, worrying what HR will find in a google search drops in priority.

4) Every time they destroy an individual with their attacks, the SJW lose all further power over that person. Every victory produces a life-long enemy who is immune to them.

Switzerland. Yes, there is paperwork, but it is by far the easiest country to get a firearm (if you have a clean record), than a lot of Europe. Their laws are almost identical to ours (federally). Closer to NC's laws I find. Mind you, there is a bit more scrutiny as they will call your neighbors and the like to see what kind of person you are.

Lastly, although we often read how every male gets a machine gun service rifle, you have the same strong anti-gun forces there just as you have in the U.S. And they are every bit as bad. And if you're American, have fun trying to live there as you will probably not be able to open a bank account.

I actually had to go to go back court to prove how much money I *lost* in 2011 in one venture, let alone how much I made off my nefarious charity and paying blue collar salaries out of my pocket. (in seriousness it is f@#$%ing obscene). I mentally in a state of near constant exhaustion, which I am sure is part of the plan.

Thankfully some of my wife's fellow yuppie wives are becoming borderline bloodthirsty. They went from "can't we all get along?" to making their milquetoast husbands go to gun shows with me in about 36 months. Interesting to say the least...

A generation that created the opening power chords of Smells Like Teen Spirit is not a spiritless generation.

The other day I ran across the Nickelback video for Edge of a Revolution.

Now, I assume that Nickelback, like every famous band since the ones that came out of Laurel Canyon, is a corporate creation that's exactly as "edgy" as its producer's marketing department tells it to be. I also assume that the creators and band members would say the "revolution" they had in mind was about Occupy or dope legalization. I realize that by even admitting that I listened to a Nickelback song I've admitted that I have no musical taste or soul.

And yet.... I couldn't help thinking that song wouldn't make a bad anthem for the dissaffected white working class when what's coming comes. Heck, take out the couple of token black kids in the video, and you could play it at white nationalist rallies.

My favorite quote from the article:

Paschall, a retired sociology professor from St. Cloud State University, said later he was glad to see Somalis running for office.

“When I came here somebody told me that they called it ‘White Cloud,’ but there’s been a lot of change,” he said. “Even if [Kulane] doesn’t win, I think it’ll be a good experience for the city to get acquainted with a Somali and to see that his concerns are very much what a lot of other citizens’ are.”

Yes, and music reflects the public mood, so if/when you start to see white anthems with raw emotion and imagery like Edge of a Revolution or Stone In My Hand become popular, first underground and then more overtly, you will start to see more GenXers commiting energy and resources to the battle. Until then, why spit into the wind? Protect you and yours, and keep your powder dry.

First, you are a traitor to the cause with your rejection of the Irish and Italians as "white".
Second, you outright refuse to specifically define "white" for the viewing audience; instead, you purposely offer vague statements.


In the end, it matters whether white people have the liberty to choose to bring into their country by the rule of law non-white people -and- whether white people have the liberty to marry and procreate with non-white people. And Gen X'ers, on the whole, embrace this liberty as resourceful, independent, self-sufficient and relatively socially PROGRESSIVE, a generation that embraces technology and social media, interracial relationships, and gay marriage much more readily and are decidedly less inclined to advocate the destruction of the generation of their parents.

Do you reject this exercise of liberty?

Every time I have to do one of those things I'm temped to do just that, because I feel that saying white male means my application automatically gets thrown out. At the same time I wonder if HR actually allows people to choose that option, or if that option is itself a method to screen out applicants.

Someone said Xers are pragmatic, and that's probably the perfect word. We don't fight battles we can't win. We don't do empty gestures or moral victories. We just don't see the point. (And that's why Boomers think we don't care: they define caring by how willing one is to engage in empty gestures.) After all, one of the defining movies of our generation gave us the saying, "Sometimes the only way to win is not to play."

Exactly that. We've grown up in the milieu of empty gestures, demonstrations, and symbolic 'sacrifices' by the feel-good generation. Sure, a certain percentage of Gen Xers are in on the Occupy movement and such, but that is largely a Millenial thing (with a few old Boomers in the mix).

When Gen Xers act, it will be to actually do something. When they feel they have a) no other choice and b) a real opportunity to accomplish something, the action will be swift and harsh. When they choose NOT to act, that in itself is often quite telling too. Gen X are driving the homeschooling rate up, they are driving up the neo-homesteading rates, and are in many other ways refusing to play the game. Playing the game is what feeds the monster.

We remember what the country was like when we were children... but how it was already seriously damaged by the time we reached adulthood. There is nothing more that we would like than to have a few years of our adult life in liberty before we die.

This is the Emma Lazarus "Poor Huddled Masses Yearning to Breathe Free" phenomenon.

1880-1920 Hasidic Jews came to America to dodge the Russian draft, make a buck, and perpetuate their Yiddish speaking colonies. They did NOT come here to assimilate with anyone or "breathe free". Yet that meme persists. And they have been quite successful. In their various New York/New Jersey colony towns they have 6-10 kids per family and over 80% of the population collects some form of welfare. They do not teach secular subjects (English, Math, Science, American History) in their religious schools and the girls are barely taught at all. Hard-working Israeli Jews are disgusted at their parasitic behavior in Israel, yet over here This American Life (see link, above) treats them with kid gloves.

One of the greatest Jewish coups de main in American social history was getting Emma Lazarus' poem cast in bronze and riveted to the [French] Statue of Liberty.

Not so fast, Akulkis. French firearms law is a lot more complicated and restrictive than you are saying. The French and Italian laws both heavily regulate what are called "military calibers". That's one reason that rifles in 7mm-08 (.308 necked down to 7mm) and pistols in 9x21mm exist, in order that French hunters and Italian pistol shooters can buy such guns.

The French classify 5.56mm NATO, the AR-15 cartridge, as a military round since it is what they feed the FAMAS carbine with, so there would be a very, very large set of very tight hoops for someone to get through to be licensed in France for an AR-15. Swiss laws are tighter than they were 20 years ago although nothing like France.

So you are wrong about France, very wrong, and also not well informed about Switzerland. I frankly don't know much about the laws in Eastern Europe, but I do know that Hungary had to change its gun laws for the worse about 10 years back so as to toe the EU's line. It's called "harmonization", the EU weenies don't want some country to join their club with gun laws that are more sane than those of Germany, because then it would be too easy for the citizens to get guns without having to go through a customs check at a border.

Not really looking for sympathy, but GenX is in something of an unenviable position. They're handed a shit sandwich, then excoriated for not "fixing" the mess when they are consistently outvoted in a straight up democracy. Not sure what the voting rates of GenX are, but it wouldn't surprise me if they were quite low since they know they're on the wrong end of a demographic shit-stick. To the degree that they're pragmatic, they probably don't see much point in participating in democracy when such numbers are taken into account. Plus, they're pretty busy trying to make ends meet in the shattered remnants of our economy and of course, being tasked with taking care of Boomers and the indigenous/imported parasites that the Boomers all felt sorry for and foisted on the country.

I see GenX as withdrawing from the situation as much as possible. The homeschooling phenomenon, while still small relative to the masses in public school, is almost entirely a GenX phenomenon. Preppers (though I hate the term) are largely going to be GenX as well, though most of them are quite rightly quiet about it, the gooftards on reality TV notwithstanding. Most of the people I teach riflecraft to are GenX and their kids, with a smattering of Boomers who are observant. These latter also often bring the grandkids where their GenX parents are worthless and/or indifferent.

I'm not sure what to make of the millenial cohort, not having much to do with them, but I get the sense they're grasping at anything to try and make sense of the mess, with pretty poor results.

I always figured that the time range for the "baby boom" and "genX" was just too wide. I had a boss who was born in '59, so boomer, except that person grew up with empty schools and small classes because there weren't that many kids around. Boom? What boom?

When you got to lump in Flock of Seagulls, Was Not-Was, Terry Bogio's various bands with Nirvana to say "this is a generation" then the "generation" is too big. Latch key kid of 1975 had a different child hood than latch key kid of 1990. Being 13 in 1985 with Reagan and MTV not the same thing as being 13 in 1995 with Clinton/Lewinsky and flannel-grunge, no.

Probably should split the Boomers into "early" and "late", maybe the same for genX. But all this "gen A vs. gen B. vs gen C." doesn't really do much for me. Looks a lot like divide and conquer in a way.

Anonymous Frederick303 September 29, 2014 3:35 PM  

Poland has very restrictive gun laws. The rate of ownership is far below any of the western countries.

All of the countries that wanted to be part of the EU were more or less required to tighten up their laws in 1999. Even in Switzerland you have to apply for weapons pass to purchase a rifle or pistol. Since 2010 you have also to apply for a weapons pass to take home your rifle upon retirement from the militia. It must be converted to single fire (self- loading) and you pay for this to be done (since 2007) No new automatic arms since 1999 either. Prior to 1999 it was possible to buy all these things and military issue arms were not controlled by any canton laws, include private(retired) military rifles/pistols. You can loss you weapons pass for irresponsible conduct outside of shooting, such as a DWI.

In Switzerland today the issue of carry permits, such as you find in the US is virtually non-existent. That too is far more severe than the law was applied prior to 1999, though the laws on carrying defensively varied from canton to canton. Today self-defense outside if the home is not allowed, though there are very few assaults. Pretty much only the state is allowed to use deadly force.

Further the attitudes are far less friendly to open firearm use than many here think. Yes there are ranges everywhere (~3000 of them) and yes shooting is part of the culture, as long as you like shooting the Obligatory match, the Field shooting match and the various ISU type of matches, all at 300 meters. Pistol matches are 50 and 25 meters. Times at which the ranges are allowed to be used are strictly controlled by statute and custom, and on military supported ranges the use is restricted to specific types of precision shooting. The US idea of going out with your favorite arm and blowing off a few hundred rounds just playing is only possible at a few privately owned ranges. These ranges have, by US standards fairly restrictive rules for shooting. This along the lines of a hunting club and or small bore club. Also do not plane on going out to the mountains and shooting into an unoccupied hill, it is not done. Shooting in your back yard, it is not done, except for those very few individuals that live on a remote farm and have a range on their property that is approved for use.

You must understand that Switzerland, with 8 million souls is very densely settled and the land deeds go back hundreds of years. It is possible to own what you would call a farm in what is called a Fee-simple arrangement, but not own the lumber rights, or the hunting rights and/or other restrictions applied. This is because the deeds go back in many cases to the Middle Ages with all of the medieval rules applied. So shooting on property must be fit into the patchwork of existing laws and deed restrictions.


For example you might have a range on your property, or be adjacent to one or be behind one in a manner that would be seen as unsafe in the US of A. In general a 15 degree safety fan is seen as adequate , that is a house or dwelling down range but outside of 15 degrees of the firing pons would not be seen as an issue in Switzerland, but it would be seen as an issue as regards plinking and at what times shooting is allowed.

The fact is the Swiss see firearms as part of their culture, and they fit in a very specific area and place within that culture. The American gun culture is far different, being far more freedom oriented and far less directed or shall one say, self-policed in the actual shooting activities. I think most Americans, once they get over the novelty of Swiss shooting would find the shooting climate to be very restrictive.

It wasn't until the 90s that we got back to wailing guitar solos and nice jam sessions. Didn't care much for Nirvana, but I dug Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Gin Blossoms, and Collective Soul much better than that "definititve" 80s bop bee dee bop new wave sound.

Of course, it helps if you like Blues influenced music as that is generally where the best can be found.

Re: switzerland,

let's not forget that the french speaking swiss are unfortunately very much influenced by France (the leftist, globaslist face of France that's projected through its media).
The french swiss are always in favor of making switzerland more "standard european". It's the german and italian swiss who keep switzerland a truly independent country.

Speaking French is a mental disorder.

Even Pushkin recognized this fact, and he was 1/4 African.

Akulkis: Who joins the Army to be in a water purification unit? No doubt a necessary job, but I can't see committing myself to four years of boiling water and adding chlorine.

I know what you mean about the bumper stickers. It's like putting a bull's eye on your car.

rycamor,

"It wasn't until the 90s that we got back to wailing guitar solos and nice jam sessions. Didn't care much for Nirvana, but I dug Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Gin Blossoms, and Collective Soul much better than that "definititve" 80s bop bee dee bop new wave sound."

You missed Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Van Halen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Extreme, Dream Theatre, Iron Maiden, Yngwie Malmsteen, Mr. Big, Paul Gilbert, Billy Sheehan, etc., etc.

There was a lot more to choose from, especially involving guitar music.

Heck, even modern day Avenged Sevenfold does a good job emulating this 80's stuff.

Guns and Roses, even Poison's last album.

Hmmm. I'm a boomer. When I was a young man, I was rebellious, as most young folks are. The difference was that there were ALOT of us being rebellious at the same time. Before I got here there were beatniks, and JDs. (Juvenile Delinquents) They were being rebellious, but there wasn't so many of them. There was ALOT of us. That's all it was. There was no Age of Aquarius. Just alot of kids being rebellious, all at the same time. It was pretty cool, actually. You had to be there. As a teenager, it was VERY cool. Did I mention that there were ALOT of us. Would you be any different? The bad part was ALOT of teenagers were egged on by 30-something Marxists. The most easily manipulated became Tom Hayden, or Jane Fonda, or Bill Ayers. Despite that, when it was my turn to stand up, I stood up. I served on the line. There's always a line. Back then, we were rebellious, but not stupid. We didn't dress women in soldier costume back then, and pretend they were soldiers. That's on you.
