Antebellum: Joyful Times Before the Storm

– 15 May 2017 –

Barzillai “19th Century” Bozarth:

So often the memories of times before a great calamity are colored and distorted by romanticism and nostalgia. It is easy for one to remember golden years filled with prosperity and happiness, all the more heavenly in contrast to the horrors and deprivations that followed.

Yet, in cases where a nation was destroyed, its society uprooted and forcibly transformed, the years preceding such revolutionary changes unquestionably experienced more prosperity and stability and innocence than the bleak years that followed. This was true in the French and Russian revolutions, and it was true for the South in the American Civil War. The following letter demonstrates this fact.

In this letter, written sometime between the years 1850 and 1856, an unknown woman using the pseudonym “Kate Cunnyngham” describes her light-hearted experiences at a fox hunt in rural Tennessee. Several of her letters, which detailed her travels throughout the antebellum South, were compiled in the book The Sunny South, or The Southerner at Home: Embracing Five Years Experience of a Northern Governess in the Land of the Sugar and the Cotton, published in 1860.

Mr. —

Have you ever been fox hunting? If you have, you have seen very respectable, rough and tumble enjoyment ; if yon have not, there are yet before you certain experiences.

I have already spoken of the fine, broadly spread landscape, visible from the portico of Overton Park Lodge. In the late autumnal months when the crops are well gathered, and there is nothing to trample down in the fields, this wide landscape is converted into a vast fox hunting ground, full eleven miles across. By concert the neighboring planters open their fences with many a gap across the country, and so a clear ride of ten or twelve miles is left free to the adventurous huntsman or huntswoman.

Two evenings ago as I was about to mount my beautiful dapple mule, (don’t laugh at my mule, for it is the dearest little fellow with ears like velvet, and feet and fetlocks like an antelope’s, a special gift to me for its beauty and gentleness, from Colonel Peyton,) to pace down the avenue to the turnpike, I was surprised to see suddenly appear in sight a party of seven young gentlemen. They were riding at top speed, and in great glee, and all came dashing up toward the villa at that rapid rate the Tennesseean loves to ride.

“Ah, my boys,” cried the colonel, “who was about to ride out with me, removing his foot from the stirrup, while I hesitated whether to remain on the flight of steps or fly from such a battalion. “Don’t go, Miss Kate. They are only some of the young fox hunters come over to make preparations.”

And before I could escape—

“Miss Conyngham, gentlemen!”

The young men, who drew up their horses on seeing a lady, lifted their caps and hats, and I was struck with their general appearance; four of them being fine-looking, yet dressed in blue linsey woolsey, with boots pulled on over their pantaloons; and the other three in thick coats and caps, or broad felt hats slouched behind—a very common head covering in these parts and not unpicturesque.

Every young man was armed with a gun, and attended at least by two dogs, and beautiful creatures some of them were —not the young men, Mr. —, but the hounds.

“Well, colonel, we have come over to settle upon the day,” said one of the young gentlemen.

“That is right! I like to see the rising generation prompt to engage in such noble sports. I think that the day after to-morrow we will give Reynard our compliments in person. I will have my men ready, and if you will meet me at the edge of the wood, by the lion’s head cliff, at six in the morning, we will do our best for a day’s sport.”

“We’ll be there, colonel,” was the response; “and then we shall stand a chance of bringing down a deer or two,” added one of them. “I saw one on the ridge by the creek as I rode over.”

“No doubt we shall see plenty of sport. And you must accompany us, Miss Kate,” added the colonel turning to me, as I stood with the bridle of my mule in my hand, trying to check his restive movements, for the prancing horses of the young men fired his ambition to prance too.

After suffering myself to be urged a little by two of the young gentlemen, I consented to join the party, if other ladies did so. The cavalcade then escorted us to the gate of the main road, and the horsemen separated each to his own home; while the colonel and I took a forest road, that, after a league’s windings, came out near the villa. As we rode, the colonel entertained me with a great many anecdotes of hunting, from Bruin to the Hare. As we approached the mansion on our return, the avenue was temporarily blocked up by not less than fifty slaves of both sexes; for it was now twilight, and they had just completed their day’s work, and were wending their way to their village, or quartier.

The women carried hoes upon their shoulders, and trudged along, some dull, and with expressionless faces, others laughing and singing. The men, I remarked, were more cheerful than the women, and had more lively countenances. One and all were clad in their coarse white cloth, known as negro cloth— the men with straw hats and the women with handkerchiefs upon their heads. I have not yet seen a negro woman wear a bonnet on Sundays, it is only a gayer kerchief.

As we passed, they drew up on each side of the narrow road for us to pass—the men all taking off, or touching their hats, and replying with a smile to their master’s salutation of “Good evening, boys!” and the women—some of them, slightly nodding, but without the smile. One of them had a huge cotton basket upon her head.
“Peep into it,” said the colonel, as I rode by. I did so, and beheld four little cunning black babies!—they were nestled together, and quite naked. These babies had been taken by their mothers to the field, and while they were at work, were placed under the care of the girl who had them in charge.

I am already getting reconciled to slavery, since I find that it does not, in reality, exhibit the revolting horrors I was taught in the North to discover in it. There are many things to admire and to interest one in the social and domestic condition of the slaves, and I am almost ready to acknowledge that the African is happier in bondage than free! At least one thing is certain: nearly all the free negroes I have ever seen in the North were miserable creatures, poor, ragged, and often criminal. Here they are well clad, moral, nearly all religious, and the temptations that demoralize the free blacks in our northern cities are unknown to, and cannot approach them.

Even many former slaves looked back on their lives before the Civil War with nostalgia, to the point where their narratives are discounted today. In reality, most of them lived harder lives after the war.

As we drew near the front of the villa, my mule, not liking the shrill cry of a superb peacock, which conceived the idea of welcoming us with a song, and a resplendent unfolding of his prismatic-eyed tail, started to run with me at top speed. I am a tolerable rider, and as I could not fall far if I were thrown, the mule being so little and low, I did not feel half the alarm the colonel manifested for my safety, who began to ride after me; when finding his horse only gave fresh impetus to the speed of my mule, he drew rein, and called to a negro man to stop my career. But the mule was not to be stopped. Instead of taking the carriage-way, he bolted across the lawn, and made straight for the stable. To stop him was impossible. I found I might as well pull at a granite column as at his jaws. The door of his stable was open, and I saw that he would only stop at his crib. I measured the ground to spring to it, but the dreadful idea that my skirt might entangle with the horns of the saddle, deterred me. In another moment the stable was reached! The door was open. I threw myself forward, clasped neck and mane, and stooping low went safely in with him. The suddenness with which he stopped at his manger, tossed me into the rack, out of which I was taken unhurt, and with many a joke and laugh upon my mule race. But a mule race is not a fox hunt, you say! Bide a wee, sir.

Yours,

Kate.

Janus:

Cycles and seasons govern collective human behavior, whether they are irregular economic cycles from decade to decade, or the lifespan of a nation or civilization across the centuries. Likewise, some primeval force seems to take hold of a people once every human life-span or so, a force that drives a people to stand up and fight their enemies, to die if they have to, to declare that the time for compromise has reached its end because further concessions will ultimately destroy who they are as a people. Sometimes the people aim their wrath at enemies outside the gates, sometimes at the enemies within.

We are living in the cusp of such a time today. Traitors and parasites rule over the white nations of the West. They seek our displacement as a people at the very least, and they are setting the world stage for another fratricidal world war to cement their power. And the white people under their rule remain almost hopelessly confused and divided, ready to kill each other because the time for compromise has reached its limit. The lines are being drawn.

In perhaps months, or maybe a few years, the blood of thousands or millions will flow. And in the years after this season has passed, when whatever remains of the nations struggle to rebuild, the survivors will look back on today’s opulent, relatively peaceful, and carefree years as a golden age. And in many ways, in comparison to the future, maybe these years will actually be golden ones.

As we prepare ourselves for the battles to come, I recommend that we take the time to give thanks for our families and good friends, for the decent people that still exist out there, for good health and good hospitals, for our plentiful food and clean water, and every other joyous and fragile thing that we tend to take for granted. Let us appreciate them while we can.

May the Lord have mercy on us all.

PropOrNot, the Anti-Russian Propaganda Bill, and Why Some of Us Prefer Russian News to American

snopes-fake-news-sites-2

– 5 December 2016 –

Patulcius:

Patulcius-sqIn the aftermath of Trump’s election victory, the American Left is fighting bitterly to overturn, ruin, and disrupt the results. One of the ways they have tried to discredit the various anti-establishment voices is this “fake news” narrative. They seem to be wildly aiming this campaign against the Alt-Right, the #Pizzagate movement, and the alternative news media, along with Russian news outlets and their sympathizers.

On November 24, a Washington Post article warned against the horrors of various—mostly alternative—news outlets which, they say, frequently sympathize with Russia, including popular sites like Zerohedge, Infowars, and the Drudge Report. Most of my personal favorites are included, in fact. The Post cites a report by some mysterious and well-funded organization called PropOrNot which formed at the end of October to bring attention against what they view to be undue Russian influence in various irregular news sites across the political spectrum. It’s actually a useful list; I’ve found some pretty good news sites that I had never heard of. (Watch for them to break their links.)

This PropOrNot business seems to be growing teeth with the passage on 30 November of H.R. 6393: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017. A seemingly ordinary and uncontroversial budget bill passed to fund our intelligence services with 390 votes in favor and only 30 opposed. Yet tucked within its verbiage is the ominous section 501, which relates to “active measures by the Russian Federation to exert covert influence over peoples and governments.” From Zerohedge:

A quick skim of the bill reveals “Title V—Matters relating to foreign countries”,  whose Section 501 calls for the government to “counter active measures by Russia to exert covert influence … carried out in  coordination with, or at the behest of, political leaders or the security services of the Russian Federation and the role of the Russian Federation has been hidden or not acknowledged publicly.”

The section lists the following definitions of media manipulation:

  • Establishment or funding of a front group.
  • Covert broadcasting.
  • Media manipulation.
  • Disinformation and forgeries.
  • Funding agents of influence.
  • Incitement and offensive counterintelligence.
  • Assassinations.
  • Terrorist acts.

As ActivistPost correctly notes, it is easy to see how this law, if passed by the Senate and signed by the president, could be used to target, threaten, or eliminate so-called “fake news” websites, a list which has been used to arbitrarily define any website, or blog, that does not share the mainstream media’s proclivity to serve as the Public Relations arm of a given administration.

Curiously, the bill which was passed on November 30, was introduced on November 22, two days before the Washington Post published its Nov. 24 article citing “experts” who claim Russian propaganda helped Donald Trump get elected.

Of course some of us on the Right have grown to prefer our top news from RT.com or other Russian sites, and we have come to see the Russian perspective as the usually pro-White, pro-Christian counter to the corrupt lies and manipulations of the major American news outlets. To us, the only country in the world that seems to be moving firmly in a sensible direction is Russia. We don’t have to be propagandized to see this. We genuinely prefer the traditionalist Russian perspective and have deliberately sought it out.

Are there Russian connections to the American Right? Very likely so. Russia has a vested interest. The Obama regime has worked to isolate Russia and overthrow its government. If the U.S. can transform into an ally via Russian influence, great. But if the U.S. falls into civil war and balkanizes, that will work, too. In either scenario, the U.S. will stop working to push Russia into World War III.

Does Russia have America’s best interests in mind? I think they want us to stay out of their sphere of influence but otherwise don’t really care what we do. We should regard them the same way. Russia is following a Russia-first policy; the U.S. should focus on our own interests. The two don’t have to conflict.

Did Russian influence cause Hillary Clinton to lose? No way. Pro-union white men in the rust belt tipped the balance against Hillary. Lack of black turnout didn’t help her either. The establishment is just using this as a cover to attack the anti-establishment Right.

Perhaps the American establishment has good cause to worry about the rise of the white Right.

mccarthyism

The Left still whines about Joseph McCarthy and the House Committee on Un-American Activities. During the Forties and Fifties, those two entities kept the Commies in check. But they didn’t go far enough, and ultimately the Left won out, ushering in the dystopia we have today.

The pro-white, pro-Christian American establishment of the 1950’s rightly grew concerned over the growth of Marxist influence (much of it influenced by the USSR). And today’s anti-white, anti-Christian establishment likewise fears the resurgence of a popular and angry pro-white and pro-Christian movement, one that has finally inoculated itself against the Alinskyite tactics of the Left.

In the 1950’s, the Leftists successfully defeated a Joseph McCarthy who, while correct about Communist infiltration, overextended himself, with the cucks of the time successfully sabotaging his efforts. Basically the Constitution tied the hands of the Right against an enemy who uses our laws against us.

Today’s establishment isn’t about to give up without a fight like the overly-civic and overly-sensible white establishment of the 1950’s. They will attempt to repress any influential reaction against them.

Trump Won! Some Random Thoughts

trump-victory

– 9 November 2016 –

Janus:

Janus-smallUntil about 8 o’clock yesterday, I was certain that the powers-that-be would steal the election from Donald Trump. Yet, despite the united opposition of Leftists and cuckservatives, Trump won the electoral vote.

So what can we expect to happen during Obama’s last few months and during Trump’s first months in office?

Too Close For Comfort

The election was a close thing. Too close. Another four years of even legal immigration at current levels will make it that much harder for a Right-wing candidate to pull off an electoral victory.

Driving around the country, I’ve seen a sea of Trump signs, many of them homemade, in the white countryside, and I’ve seen very few Hillary signs even in urban areas. Yet the cities gave Hillary a higher overall popular vote than Trump (through legitimate turnout or by fraud).

To repeat yesterday’s win in the 2020 election, Trump must not only halt legal as well as illegal immigration, he must drive out a significant number of foreigners or liberals.

Obama’s Last Days

While Obama made a show of civility and cooperation in his address to the nation today, he remains a radical Leftist activist. He and his handlers will do whatever they can to cement the changes they’ve imposed over the last eight years and to push their agendas forward through a Trump presidency.

Obama will probably encourage more racial unrest in cooperation with Soros-funded movements like Black Lives Matter. We may see more riots and marches against the police.

He and his ilk may intentionally create a banking crisis or a stock market crash. They may provoke international instability with Russia or the Middle East, perhaps even causing a war.

It’s amazing that the world’s terrorist attacks took a vacation during the past few months after a year of almost weekly horrors. The United States is ripe for civil unrest right now, and terrorists would be negligent if they didn’t take advantage, whether they are backed by Western traitors or not.

Look for Obama to issue a general pardon of black criminals (including himself and his cabinet), and create some sort of amnesty for illegal aliens. Likewise, he will almost certainly try to flood the country with Muslims while he still can.

Frankly, I will be suspicious if Obama doesn’t do these things to some extent.

Obama will almost certainly not try to stay in office. It’s apparent that he and his wife hate the presidency and can’t wait to leave.

grim_valerie_jarrett2

Obama’s multi-culti aides look pleasantly unhappy. Hopefully they flee the country. Nice to see them full of hate and despair for a change.

Trump’s First Days

Unlike Obama, Trump gets things done.

With the Republicans in charge of Congress for at least the next two years, Trump should be able to ram through some drastic changes during that time, particularly in the first 100 days. I expect he will have detailed plans of action ready before he even takes office.

A new Supreme Court justice, the revocation of many of Obama’s executive orders, immigration enforcement, etc.

If Trump is the real deal, his first days in office should be an exciting time.

Sabotage of Trump’s Presidency

Let’s hope that Trump refuses to bend in his attempt to be everyone’s president.

While making a show of ‘working together’, the elites will try to undermine Trump’s presidency. This sabotage will come from both right and left, from Trump’s ideological enemies and from his supposed allies. The cuck Paul Ryan made a pretty fawning speech today, but look for him and his fellow traitors to uphold the interests of the elites to maintain free trade, non-white immigration, and globalism in general.

If left to his own devices, Trump would probably support a very moderate, even liberal, social agenda. Fortunately, the Soros-funded dregs of society will likely force Trump to react against them. Trump will act decisively, perhaps driving further unrest. Trump may not have the luxury to appease them.

Assassination

It’s still possible that the powers-that-be could assassinate Trump before he takes office. This seems doubtful at this point, considering that they allowed him to win. But if Trump is really opposed to the globalist system, there is a good chance the elites will kill him at some point if he threatens their plans.

Betrayal

Donald Trump could also betray us. Ever since Trump’s remarkably tight win in the Missouri primary, I’ve been suspicious (paranoid?) that the PTB might actually have backed him all along, that he is some sort of false opposition. He did win several key states by very thin margins. If the system is rigged, could it be rigged for Trump?

On the other hand, Trump has shown that he is a man who rewards the loyalty of his followers, even when it isn’t the popular thing to do. For instance, Michael Savage has supported him from the get-go, and Trump called Savage’s radio show on the day of the election when there was no political advantage in doing so. A man like that isn’t likely to deceive so many people who sacrificed to support his campaign.

Regardless of whether Trump is a shill or not, we must remain vigilant to hold Trump’s feet to the fire.

Vigilance

In some ways it’s unfortunate that Hillary didn’t win a close (and likely stolen) election. The pernicious presence of Obama for the last eight years has done wonders in galvanizing patriotic whites to oppose the advance of racial diversity, immorality, and egalitarianism.

Had Hillary defeated Trump, the pressure that brought the Trump candidacy and the alt-right would have continued to rise to ever greater, more deplorable, levels. When it finally exploded, we could have made some dramatic changes for to secure a land for our people.

In the past thirty years, when Republican presidents took office, they never reversed the liberal trends of the predecessors, merely slowed them, and patriots lost their vigilance during those times.

If the Left doesn’t try to ruin the Trump presidency, then today’s patriots might fall asleep once again, allowing society to fully digest homosexuality, fluid gender, and other forms of sickness.

Conclusion

Whatever happens, the next year or two ought to be pretty interesting. Hang on to your MAGA hat.

Billboard That’s Supposed to Attack Trump Proves the Point About Muslims in America

arabic-anti-trump-billboard

– 18 October 2016 –

Janus:

Janus-smallA billboard in heavily-Muslim Dearborn, Michigan attacks Donald Trump for his supposed bigotry. The sign translates as “Donald Trump, he can’t read this, but he is afraid of it.”

Nearly all of the 330,000 people who drive past the sign each week can’t read this sign either. The sign will remind many of them that we have too many Muslims in the United States, that they pose a threat to our security and our identity by their very presence here. To top it off, the sign’s white Arabic scribbles on a black background bears a resemblance to the ISIS flag.

isis-flags

They’re only making a political statement, you racist bastards.

Via RT:

The campaign was bought by the Nuisance Committee and cost $4,850.

“We came up with it because we believe that Donald Trump’s hateful rhetoric is not based on reality. It’s based on fear,” Melissa Harris, a Nuisance Committee spokeswoman, told the Detroit Free Press. “And we think that irrational fear is what’s driving his anti-immigrant message.”

At the bottom of the billboard is the web address trumpisscared.org, which features a timeline of Trump’s previous statements about Muslims.

[. . .]

The Nuisance Committee is co-founded by Max Temkin, whose grandfather Ira Weinstein was shot down over Germany during a World War II combat mission and was interned in a POW camp. At the camp, Weinstein and other Jewish POWs banded together to form a “nuisance committee” to irritate their Nazi captors in ways that wouldn’t get them killed.

The group said “the comparison between Trump and Hitler is intentional.”

More Jews against Donald Trump. They sense a popular threat to their “open society” from people who are tired of a decadent, valueless society full of foreigners meant to displace us.

What’s actually funny about the Jews’ resistance is that Trump himself probably doesn’t pose a serious threat to their order. He’s not going to reverse the moral decline in the country, as he accepts homosexuals and trannies. He loves blacks and plans to create even more programs to falsely elevate them. He might stop illegal immigration, but who cares should they enter through a “big, beautiful door”. A Trump victory could mollify American whites into accepting today’s status quo. (Will I still vote for him? Yes. He’s a gamble. She’s a sure loss. Plus there’s the “fuck you” factor.)

A Trump loss on the other hand will only keep the pressure of resentment rising. The next phase of this resentment will likely make Donald Trump appear as milquetoast as the Tea Party.

If Hillary wins in November, she’d better start that nuclear war quickly before she has a civil war on her hands.

Christopher Columbus – Another White Hero Vilified by the Left

desembarco_de_colon_de_dioscoro_puebla-3

– 10 October 2016 –

Patulcius:

Unless trends dramatically change in the next few years, official celebrations of Columbus Day around the world are coming to an end.

Via CNN:

Since Columbus Day 2015, at least 14 communities in the United States have passed measures designating the second Monday in October Indigenous Peoples Day.

The changes build on recent efforts to shift the day’s focus from the Italian explorer, beginning in big cities including Seattle, Minneapolis and Albuquerque, and spreading to counties and school districts.

“Indigenous Peoples Day represents a shift in consciousness,” said Dr. Leo Killsback, a citizen of the Northern Cheyenne Nation and assistant professor of American Indian Studies at Arizona State University.

“It acknowledges that indigenous peoples and their voices are important in today’s conversations.”

“Conversations.” There’s another word that the Left has hijacked and mangled. On the surface, it’s a mutual exchange of thoughts and ideas between multiple parties; but in the Left’s context, a “conversation” is their attempt to force one group of people to quietly accept self-righteous, condescending, and utterly self-destructive instruction.

Even in the Spain, where the monarchy sponsored Columbus’ voyage, people are rethinking his legacy.

A group of left-wing city council members in Barcelona called for the city to remove a 196-foot statue of Christopher Columbus in one of its most heavily trafficked intersections as part of a proposal to strike the October 12 national holiday and return it to a regular working day.

Council member María José Lecha González said public commemoration of Columbus glorifies colonialism and imperialism, and called the holiday a “mockery” of the genocide of the indigenous population.

fallen-columbus-statue

Formerly a monument to the man who discovered the Americas for Europe, now a monument to the ugly barbaric forces who will destroy what European peoples have built.

Regardless of how Columbus treated the Indians he encountered (and it doesn’t seem that he treated them any worse than European peasants of that time), Columbus bravely crossed the Atlantic, discovered America for European civilization, and established an enduring European presence. We of European descent in the Americas owe our existence, our cultures, and our nations to the vision of this one man. Had some other explorer discovered America ten, fifty, or a hundred years later, today’s world would be radically different.

Those of native descent have no reason to celebrate Columbus. He ultimately brought the diseases that wiped so many of them out, and the settlers who displaced them. Today, some of these natives see the weakness of whites and are taking advantage.

But don’t imagine for a second that our capitulation to these groups will win their thanks and approval for very long. They don’t want dialogue and understanding, they will tear us down until we are a forgotten people, if we continue to let them. And these natives will live no better after our demise.

If we don’t defend our symbols and our history, then we have no future.

A good defense of Columbus can be found at the Catholic Education Resource Center:

In all of history, only the Europeans and the Polynesians of the south Pacific have been true discoverers, sailing for the explicit purpose of finding new lands, trading with their people, and colonizing them. And of all discoverers Christopher Columbus was the greatest, because he accomplished the most against the highest odds.

Before Columbus’ time all European voyages had followed coastlines, or crossed open seas to lands previously known or at least sighted by storm-driven ships. Only Columbus set off directly across a broad, unknown sea with no specific knowledge of how far it extended or what lay on the other side. To be sure, Columbus was convinced that he could reach Asia from Europe within the time during which the provisions he carried in his three ships would sustain his men. But he was wrong about that. If America had not existed — had not been in the way — Columbus would have had to turn back long before reaching his goal, or he and every man on his ships would have died.

[. . .]

When, after leaving the Canary Islands September 6, they had been out of sight of land for a full month — a longer voyage out of sight of land than any other in the history of the world up to that time — Columbus’ men became frightened and angry. During most of the voyage the wind, often strong, had blown from astern or nearly so. How were they ever going to get back, beating against it? Columbus knew that further north the prevailing winds blew from the west, and planned to go north to catch the westerlies before he returned. But his men knew nothing of world geography; all they knew was what they had seen, that in these strange and empty seas the winds almost always blew from the east or the northeast. On October 10 the men of the Santa Maria came to the verge of open mutiny.[6]

Columbus tells us in his Log how he answered them:

They [the crew] could stand it no longer. They grumbled and complained of the long voyage, and I reproached them for their lack of spirit, telling them that, for better or worse, they had to complete the enterprise on which the Catholic Sovereigns [Isabel and Fernando] had sent them. I cheered them on as best I could, telling them of all the honors and rewards they were about to receive. I also told the men that it was useless to complain, for I had started out to find the Indies and would continue until I had accomplished that mission, with the help of Our Lord.[7]

That last sentence summed up the heart and essence of the whole life and achievement of Christopher Columbus.

[. . .]

Upon the islands that he first discovered on the other side of the Atlantic, Columbus found native inhabitants, whom he called Indians, believing himself to be in “the Indies” of Asia. And here began the long and troubled story of Columbus’ interaction with the native Americans.

Before going into the historical details of that interaction, it is essential to clear away the fog of idealization and special pleading that now surrounds so much talk about the American Indians. First of all we have to understand the situation that existed in the world of the Indian of the Caribbean and mid- America when Columbus arrived.

It seems to be true, as is so often repeated today, that when Columbus found them, the Indians inhabiting the Bahama Islands, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the great island the Spanish called Hispaniola (now divided between Haiti and the Dominican Republic) were a gentle, happy, attractive people living peacefully in good ecological balance with their surroundings. They were known as Taino, or Arawaks.[8]

But they were not destined to remain in their Eden-like situation for long, even if Columbus and the Spanish had not come. Advancing steadily northward from the long chain of Caribbean islands called the Antilles was one of the most ferocious people in recorded history, the Caribs. They were savage conquerors who practiced cannibalism, not as an occasional cultic ritual, but as a regular diet. Captured prisoners were immediately eaten. Conquered peoples were systematically devoured. On every island they seized, the Caribs soon exterminated every Taino. On no island did the two tribes coexist.[9]

Across the island-studded Caribbean Sea lay Mexico. Though politically and culturally advanced beyond most other Indian cultures — the Mexica had a large army, a well-developed governmental administration, a system of writing, and stone temples — their empire, which we call Aztec, carried out ritual human sacrifice on a scale far exceeding any recorded of any other people in the history of the world. The law of the Mexica empire required a thousand human sacrifices to the god Huitzilopochtli in every town with a temple, every year; there were 371 subject towns in the empire, and the majority had full-scale temples. There were many other sacrifices as well. The total number was at least 50,000 a year, probably much more. The early Mexican historian Ixtlilxochitl estimated that one out of every five children in Mexico was sacrificed. When in the year 1487 the immense new temple of Huitzilopochtli was dedicated in Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City), more than 80,000 men were sacrificed, at fifteen seconds per man, for four days and four nights of almost unimaginable horror.[10]

It must be emphasized that there is no serious dispute about these facts and figures. All reputable and informed historians of pre-Columbian Mexico[11] accept their essential accuracy, though some prefer not to talk about them. These facts of history totally dispose of the romantic fantasy of a hemisphere full of peaceful, nature-loving Indians who threatened no one until the cruel white man came.

That the conversion of the people he found was a central purpose of Christopher Columbus is made unmistakably clear by an entry in his log book written November 6, when he was exploring the coast of Cuba. It is addressed directly to Isabel and Fernando:

I have to say, Most Serene Princes, that if devout religious persons know the Indian language well, all these people would soon become Christians. Thus I pray to Our Lord that Your Highnesses will appoint persons of great diligence in order to bring to the Church such great numbers of peoples, and that they will convert these peoples. . . . And after your days, for we are all mortal, you will leave your realms in a very tranquil state, free from heresy and wickedness, and you will be well received before the Eternal Creator.[12]

Two Female Black Navy Sailors Refuse to Stand for National Anthem (So Far)

Janaye Ervin has served in the military since 2008 but felt she could no longer stand for the national anthem following a series of instances of police brutality against black Americans.

“I feel like a hypocrite singing about ‘land of the free’ when I know that only applies to some Americans,” she explained in a Facebook post that has since been removed. “I will gladly stand again, when ALL AMERICANS are afforded the same freedom.”

Since staging her protest, the active duty sailor says she has had her security clearance revoked and was threatened with jail time.

Ervin is the second sailor to take part in the growing anti-anthem movement. An unnamed sailor in Florida was shown sitting during the anthem with her fist held up in a nod to the ‘black power’ salute.

“Until this country shows that they’ve got my back as a black woman, that they’ve got my people’s back — not even just being black but people of color — I can’t. And I won’t,” she explained.

So special. A hero of today’s military, bravely standing up for her special rights against a tyrannical racist military. Never mind that the country let her join our military, which it shouldn’t have done. Why do we put up with this?

Active members of the military are restricted by rules which govern their conduct. It is technically illegal for Navy members to protest this way, according to Navy Regulation 1205, which requires personnel to stand and salute the flag, or place their hand over their heart during the national anthem. Breaching this is classed as a serious offense and is punishable under Article 92 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

The Navy has responded to the two acts of protest by publishing new guidelines which remind members of the above regulations, and feature restrictions on social media etiquette.

“Sailors will receive training on the appropriate usage of social media and must not use it to discredit the Naval Service, and should be reminded it could potentially be used as evidence against them,” it warns.

“While military personnel are not excluded from the protections granted by the First Amendment, the US Supreme Court has stated that the different character of our community and of the military mission requires a different application of those protections.”

It will be interesting to see if more of these defiant military spectacles continue.

A real military would have locked these “sailors” in the brig and then court-marshaled them. But then a real military wouldn’t have deployable female sailors at all, or transvestites, or any number of other touchy-feely policies that coddle to the individual’s feelings.

Women in particular have always needed special treatment and attention in the military, so it is no surprise that both of these black protesters happen to be women.

But the real issue here isn’t the gender of these protesters, but their race.

The presence of blacks in a white country’s military has always been a mixed bag. In the U.S., before they were fully integrated into white units, blacks often caused trouble, even during wartime. Integration merely made instances of outright revolt less likely.

To be fair, plenty of black men have served our country as soldiers and sailors with great distinction. Such men tend to keep their less enthusiastic fellows in line. But the majority of black people in the military, including many of the honorable ones, identify as blacks first and Americans second.

This is only natural, really. Blacks are a separate nation within the United States.

As the percentage of non-whites and women in the U.S. military grows, the less cohesion the military will have. Powerful EEO offices will continue to push for more leeway for protected groups to express themselves.

This is a recipe for disaster.

Without an overwhelming majority of one core group or another, racial integration of a military doesn’t work. Today whites only make up about 60% of the U.S. military. When that number drops below 50%, expect the country to soon disintegrate.

The War on White Monuments: Duke Supporters and Soros Marxists Clash in New Orleans

– 24 September 2016 –

Janus:

Janus-smallA Leftist group called “Take Em Down NOLA” led a protest in New Orleans against the slow process of removing four Confederate statues and to demand further removals, particularly to take down the statue of President Andrew Jackson in Jackson Square.

Via the Kansas City Star:

Hundreds of people turned out Saturday in New Orleans’ historic French Quarter to protest a statue of Andrew Jackson and Confederate monuments in the city.

New Orleans has been struggling with what to do with a number of Confederate-era monuments in the city. The City Council voted last year to remove four of the monuments after heated public meetings but the effort has been stalled in the courts. A major hearing on their removal is slated for Wednesday.

Take Em Down NOLA, a group that has been advocating for the removal of monuments it describes as being linked to the city’s white supremacist history, called for a demonstration Saturday to take down the statue of Andrew Jackson in Jackson Square to protest the slow progress of taking down the Confederate monuments.

The Jackson statue is not one of the four Confederate monuments that the council voted to remove. Jackson is considered a key figure for leading the defense of the city in an 1815 battle against the British. But Michael Quess Moore, one of the group’s organizers, said Jackson was also a slave-owner who as president signed the controversial Indian Removal Act.

[. . .]

Shortly before the protesters arrived, white supremacist David Duke and a small group of supporters converged on the square, calling for the statue to be protected.

As Duke, who is also running for Senate, talked to supporters he was heckled by bystanders.

“I am here to defend our American heritage. Our Louisiana heritage and our New Orleans heritage,” he said.

The protests were largely peaceful although a few fights broke out between demonstrators. WWL-TV reported that seven people were arrested.

Bunch of Google degenerates with their printed signs and printed shirts. They appear well-enough funded. And no doubt the old white cuck on the right feels very self-righteous in joining this anti-white protest. I’m sure he brags about his involvement to anyone who will listen.

What is this “Take Em Down NOLA” group anyway?

Their website offers the following description:

We the people of New Orleans demand that the Mayor and City Council take immediate action to remove all monuments, school names and street signs dedicated to White Supremacists. These structures litter our city with visual reminders of the horrid legacy of slavery that terrorized so many of this city’s ancestors. They misrepresent our community. We demand the freedom to live in a city where we are not forced to pay taxes for the maintenance of public symbols that demean us and psychologically terrorize us. We demand:

  1. That the city release a timeline for the immediate removal of the monuments;
  2. That the city expand the definition from 4 specific monuments to encompass all monuments to White Supremacy;
  3. That the city develop a community driven process for the removal of the monuments and the choosing of their replacements.

If you really want to sign the petition, their site mentions that you will receive “periodic updates on activism opportunities from ColorOfChange.org.” Goody.

So what is Color of Change? From the ColorOfChange site:

Color Of Change helps people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. As a national online force driven by over one million members, we move decision makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people, and all people. Until justice is real.

The Activist Facts website—which helpfully exposes the funding, agendas, and personnel of various Left-wing activist groups—mentions the Color of Change’s ties to George Soros:

Through the years, Color of Change has received considerable funding from groups controlled by George Soros, the billionaire best known for backing left-wing nonprofit groups. Since 2009, Soros’ Open Society Foundation (OSF) has given $550,000 to Color of Change and its parent organization, Citizen Engagement Laboratory (CEL). Among other recipients of donations from Soros are ACORN, People for the American Way, and MoveOn.org, where James Rucker previously served as Director of Grassroots Mobilization. Color of Change has had numerous campaign partnerships and close ties with MoveOn.org.

Color of Change “partners” with, and is a project of CEL. CEL directs a number of other projects that could be considered carbon copies of Color of Change—most of these projects seek to engage and mobilize minority citizens to expand their political voice generally through the use of the internet. Similar to Color of Change, these organizations masquerade as champions of suppressed and disadvantaged individuals in order to advance their progressive political agenda.

Effectively, Soros and other billionaires are able to funnel their millions of dollars in donations into MoveOn.org, CEL, and ultimately Color of Change to rally left-wing supporters to vote.

It’s interesting that these types of groups have already expanded their attacks on Confederate symbols to include Andrew Jackson tributes and memorials.

Once local and state governments quickly remove these symbols of whiteness, the Leftists will immediately demand the purge of other white icons, such as Christopher Columbus, most of our slave-owning Founding Fathers, and Henry Ford.

The cultural Marxists will not be satisfied until they have not only removed all of white history, but whiteness itself.
