Demographics is destiny

Adam Carolla is right. LA is now Mexico.

Attendance:

Los Angeles Chargers: 21,054
Los Angeles Galaxy: 25,667

It's all about the demographics. Even so, an MLS team outdrawing an NFL team at home? The NFL has no idea how much trouble lies ahead thanks to the diversity it has supported over the years. It's not an accident that every major league sport was invented by white Americans... or white Canadians. Other peoples simply aren't as interested in them.

I suspect ticket cost also plays a small part in the discrepancy, too. How many Los Angelinos can afford an NFL ticket and associated costs compared to a MLS one?

The hispanics (both legal and illegal) here in SoCal like Soccer most, then LA Dodgers baseball. None of them care about football.

Yeah NFL tickets are too friggin high. Here in Cincinnati, cheapest Bengals tickets are $69. FC Cincinnati fills a 33K seat stadium most of the time, highest ticket is $25. Most fans are Anglos, low population of Mexicans here.

The chargers played week 1 in Denver, so I presume that is a preseason game. Not all too surprising considering who wants to pay full price for a game that doesn't count, and is mostly about figuring out who #45-53 on the roster is going to be.

As a long time LA fan, those numbers as soft.
The stadium is in Carson which is hell to get to. Attendance capped often considering it's on a college campus.
Part of the draw is due to two big name Mexican players on the team. Beckham didn't always draw huge crowds when he was there.

Gays? Trannies? I must admit, though, I do get a laugh out of black players on their knees in front of the American flag. The pre-game is starting to look like a Roman victory march.

Chargers have yet to have a regular season home game here. The Stub Hub will rock. Season tix were sold out when I got my opportunity to buy them. Let's see what happens when they settle in.

The Galaxy has been here (in LA) from the jump and has won multiple championships for us. Tix are cheap, and it's a blast to go.

Yes, UCLA and USC regularly draw more than the Rams or Chargers will. Huge local fanbase that had no competition for e generation. FYI, Rose Bowl holds 82k for a UCLA game. Mausoleum has been reduced to 72k or so.

Now, if the Raiders had come.... Lights out attendance. They actually won us a Super Bowl.

paworld: a seamless transition from an all-White to a non-White America.


I recently sent a friend this tidbit:
http://takimag.com/articlethe_great_hate_flood_of_2017_jim_goad#axzz4sbbZo1CR

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner -- a man not quite as black as a roasted coffee bean but is getting there -- graciously assured the city's estimated 600,000 illegal immigrants that he would block any efforts to deport them should they check into city shelters seeking solace from the storm.

Wait -- 600,000 illegal immigrants? Houston has more illegal immigrants than either Milwaukee, Las Vegas, or Albuquerque has people?


My friend wrote back:

600,000?

This would mean that Houston has over 5% of all the illegal immigrants in America...if you are gullible enough to accept the System's sugar-coated figure that there are 11 million illegal aliens.

By the way, the government and immigration advocates have been using this same figure now for about 20 years.

The real figure is almost certainly 30 million.

When immigration amnesty is granted (and it will be - the System has its heart set on it), this means 30 million new "Americans" almost entirely non-white and eager to cash in on the White guilt program and help themselves to what White privilege and wrongfully given to evil Whites.

It also means that these 30 million will qualify for "family reunification" (something Bible-thumping so-called evangelical charlatans like Ralph Reed of Christian Coalition enthusiastically supports).

Since so many of the 30 million illegal aliens are single males, this means we will get an extra helping of "diversity" when each of the day laborers one sees hanging out near the Home Depot brings his esposa and his 4 ninyos up here.

So ultimately, when amnesty takes effect, you can expect about 100 million non-whites added to the country's population.

And this will (at last!) break the System and force Whites either to man up or simply lie down and let the nonwhites kill them.

Most Mexicans' only real connection to the NFL is wearing Raiders gear for the "rebel" aura supposedly attached to overpriced junk from popular corporate entities.

Giovani Dos Santos' presence on the Galaxy is a pretty big draw, what with him being a Mexico national team star, and the Chargers seem to be ineptly run even by NFL standards, but Carolla's point still stands. I hear Chavez Ravine is now a popular place to get assaulted by a gang of Latin America's best arguments for abortion.

It just goes to show though, that no matter how hard ESPN and especially advertisers try to sell the illusion, Stuff Black People Like simply doesn't rate. They may make up a large proportion of the players, but they can't make a league live (if they could, sideways-pistol combat shooting would be America's number one televised sport).

There's a email list called word of a day that is run by a flaming leftist (and immigrant), Anu Garg. Today's word is xenophobia.

When gives an example of the word's usage, he can't help quoting a lefty. The quote for today is:

“We ‘mutts’ are the way of the future. That will fix xenophobia in the end -- make it too complicated to maintain.”
Sher Dawn; ’Twas Brillig: A Dark Faerie Tale for the Grown Ups; Xlibris; 2017

The world Sher describes for America's future (and the one Anu Garg subscribes to) is essentially Brazil or Mexico today. Last I checked there's still remains a lot of xenophobia in those countries. They have clearly not thought through their great utopian plan.

I have said it before, so I will say it again....

You can have whatever you can keep other men from taking....or taking back.

There are three things that are important in this world....land, women, and treasure. (If there was a fourth thing, it would be respect.)

Unless you believe you inherited any of these three, you must obtain them from other men for yourself.

You can obtain them by trade, by guile, or by the sword, but no matter how they are obtained, they are only yours as long as you can keep what you have from others, who would take it for themselves.

If demographics is destiny, we should also add that all bets are off when the shooting starts. Wars....even civil wars....have a way of changing the demographics of an area. Perhaps, enough Mexicans have moved into LA that they can claim it as long as the process is peaceful. But how long would they own LA if the Americans wanted it back? I doubt the Mexicans would be there at all, if the city were Liberated from Foreign Occupation by angry Patriots.

That is why I am not willing to surrender any state (or county, or handful of dirt) to the invaders. They stopped making land a long time ago and we are sure to need that land in the future, so we need to hang on to what land we own. No matter who is standing on our land, it is our land...one of our states in fact, and we should never allow anyone to take any state from us.

Demographics is destiny only applies to a democracy.

USC still sells out 90K. The NFL can't make up their minds on letting LA have a team. I felt LA deserves it's own expansion team instead of another disgruntled owner who might last 20 years before pulling out. But anyways, football is played by blacks. It's not a white game. Is baseball mostly white? Except when they get many latin players. America has changed and sometimes the picture looks different at different vantage points.

It's not an accident that every major league sport was invented by white Americans... or white Canadians.

Herein lies perhaps the most important insight developed on this blog. It also reveals the solipsistic nature of narcissism and why White Nationalism is inevitable.

Sophisticated pro sports theatre reveals that the white man alone has the narcissistic drive and desire to devise methods by which he can display, justify, enjoy and finesse his own brutality for high profit. It is this craven intimacy with his own physical, emotional and financial rapacity and bloodlust that simultaneously and intractably demands apartness and containment. It also demands that everyone in the post-white West be protected from it. This lust-driven appropriation process is the legacy of Western 'invention' and the reason for its current demise.

@Esmar If you read the history of football, you would understand why it is called football. I recommend the Infogalactic article.

Although I am a lifelong Colts fan, after having moved over here at the age of five, I really don't care for the NFL anymore due to the SJW convergence. I will watch Purdue or A&M if I get a chance. However, I don't get overtly into it.

I don't really particularly care for sports anymore, never really did. My one guilty pleasure is hockey, though. I am a lifelong Penguins fan. Let's see if we can pull off a three peat Stanley Cup. One of the reasons I like hockey beyond the speed n violence (I played for six years and was semi decent) is that, if we are going to look at SJW convergence, it is almost nonexistent. I think 2015 was the first time I saw any pink jerseys but even then they didn't make a big deal of it.

You add in the fact with the exception of five players total being black and Hispanic, and the fact that every player is a class act, and it's just great to watch. I have only been to two NHL game in person but it was a dream come true.

Blogger Johnny September 14, 2017 7:39 PM  

I don't like getting into it because it is pessimistic, but really the most likely outcome is that we end up being a polyglut society. If we get a blow up, and I suspect we will, white people will be hurting and the whole white guilt thing will not play out so good. The shift will be to some new line of BS by the political class. But whatever it is, it will play one group against another for political gain.

The reason Latin countries have done so poorly is that when the Spanish Empire fell apart they left behind numerous class societies, with class determined mainly by genetics. The Indians, whites, and mixed race groups. The predictable outcome from this is a corrupt, manipulative government that played one group against another, hindering any kind of soundly functioning country.

Hey, welcome to Latin America North.

Football was labelled because it was a sport played on foot, rather than horseback.

Proto football resembled something more like primitive rugby or very physical Gaelic football.

As'soc(cer)'iation football, developed out of Eton with initial rules of handling the ball, at a later point they removed it, making it a game of feet only.

The William Webb Ellis story is a myth that bears no resemblance to truth.

Yes, the origins of all football codes, as I said proto football, was akin to 2 villages thumping each other over a pig skin.

They started to be codified at school because they thought it was a good way to toughen up the boys if the empire, without the fatalities that tended to occur with out rules.

Schools at Eton and Rugby both took charge of this.

The first codified games of football (because it was played on foot, instead of horseback) all had handling of the ball.

The variant of football codified out of the school of rugby was running with the ball in the 1830's, 20 years before William Webb Ellis.

As I said, all football codes started with throwing the ball and soccer later said feet only.

Eton later removed the use if the ball by hands, and this is the soccer variant of football codes.

American football is derived from rugby, well both north American codes actually. I believe CFL was called Canadian rugby up until the 1930's even though by then they had abandoned scrums, and had blocking, lines of scrimmage and forward passes.

I believe the origins of north American football codes comes from someone sending an instruction guide without someone to verbalise the interpretation.

Explain a scrum as a line of people who collide, and reset the ball back to the half-back/quarter -back of the attacking team.....

Read the rule with no one to explain.... You develop a line if scrimmage.

Up until the 1880's in rugby, a scrum used to be the form of reset after every tackle. Hence a line of scrimmage after every tackle.

The ruck in rugby union, and the contested play the ball in rugby league (up to the 1990's) are abbreviated scrums from the rule.

That makes sense. My knowledge of the origins of football has come from a UK govt school education.

American football will never take off here in GB. I would like to see baseball become a serious rival to football.

That's because we keep sending over the Jaguars. They're not exactly popular in Jacksonvile either.

The northern 3/5 of America can't possibly demographically be another Brazil (NAM demographic dominance) longterm, once the welfare teat dries up. The climate is too cold in the winter, and unforgiving of lower-IQ/shorter time preference. Thank God for small favors...

But, negroes have shown that they can survive in cold climates as long as Whites are around. Look at every major urban area above the Mason-Dixon line. I know you say once the welfare teat dries up they will be up shit creek. One of the few gifts that blacks have is that they have no compunction about stealing, looting, assault and rioting. Until they are segregated from our presence they can always survive. Like a cockroach.

LA is Raiders/Rams country. Plus the Chargers suck. San Diego is just as Mexico as LA if not more so, yet the Chargers drew more than 27,000 at Qualcomm. Bottom line is they suck AND they're playing in enemy territory.

Not a lot of Mexican Heavyweights. Football doesn't have any weight divisions.

What are you talking about? They have the AFC South.

No support for chargers in Los Angeles means nothing. I would never support a Los Angeles team. And ppl in la would never back the Chargers. They should've moved somewhere new. Regardless, I don't care. I didn't watch NFL last year and I surely will not watch them this year. They need to get their boys in line

There are diminishing returns on looting and stealing if society falls. They will be resorting to cannibalism in a matter of weeks in that scenario. At least in Africa there are wild animals to eat. Not so in Detroit or Baltimore once the zoos are emptied out like in Venezuela. The Black welfare class is utterly doomed if the White Man goes away.

All is well. Mass e-mail from PDT last night:

Dear Friend,
There’s been a lot of noise today and a lot of rumors.

Let me set the record straight in the simplest language possible…

...WE WILL BUILD A WALL (NOT A FENCE) ALONG THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO HELP STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND KEEP AMERICA SAFE.

Apparently, liberals in Congress and the mainstream media need one more reminder that building the wall is non-negotiable.

Great news, now if only cali could leave the union. Really its wonderful news, hopefully calmex can take over hollywood.

It's amusing antifa or liberal bastions are so active there consider the have legal (weaponized) weed and zoloft yet didnt subdue the populace.

The scenario we're more likely to see is "the badge gang doesn't get paid and walks off the job".  At that point, the first incursions of the inner-city hordes meet the rifle-toting blue-collar deer hunters in lower-class suburbia, get blown to bits and try to take their wounded... to urban hospitals which have been evacuated.

The scenario from there on out depends on whether (a) anyone is stupid enough to order any remaining forces of law & order to protect welfare parasites over the productive classes, and (b) whether any LEOs are stupid enough to obey those orders instead of shooting the issuer.

The Black welfare class is utterly doomed if the White Man goes away.
And they're stupid enough to wish this anyway.  Read the comments at Field Negro; those idiots still think they built the USA, even while every city where they have political control is falling down.

Give China a territorial foothold in N. America?  Are you insane?  We should be condemning and confiscating their deteriorating houses along the west coast to get rid of their pieds-a-terre.  Kick the Chinese out.

Canada needs to enforce English/French signage in all Chinatowns, and similar public-facing staff.  That'll get them, and the Sikhs too.

USC sold out the Coliseum this weekend.

Blogger Latigo3 September 15, 2017 3:16 PM  

Although I understand the point you are making Vox, this is the wrong tree to bark up. Number one, the Chargers have never been LA, and they suck. Everywhere I went this last year, people were just scratching their heads as to why the Chargers came to LA, they were not wanted. Even though the Rams are not that good (even though they have a good defense), they were welcomed back with open arms, by the populace, City Hall and the local press. 2nd, 3rd and 4th generations Hispanics support football out here.
LA is still a Dodger, Laker and USC town, that's it. I played soccer for years and even in the heyday of the NASL, the Aztecs never drew more than 30,000. The stadium that the Galaxy play in is small on purpose, because soccer still does not draw. The MLS sucks.

I'm not sure what you're talking about with the "Catholic Takeover" bullshit, but they don't swing like a traditional Catholic.

Not at all.
