The Holidays And Diversity...

From one of America's premier diverse cities,

It was a violent and deadly holiday weekend in the Chicago area, with nine people reported slain between Wednesday and Sunday nights.


Races in Chicago:

  • Black (36.8%)
  • White Non-Hispanic (31.3%)
  • Hispanic (26.0%)
  • Other race (13.6%)
  • Two or more races (2.9%)
  • Chinese (1.1%)
  • Filipino (1.0%)
  • Asian Indian (0.9%)
  • American Indian (0.7%)
  • Other Asian (0.5%)
(Total can be greater than 100% because Hispanics could be counted in other races)

More Of That Stuff That Stregthens Us...

A deadly ambush at a coffee shop near Tacoma, Washington on Sunday morning left four police officers dead.

The man being sought by police was granted clemency by former GOP Arkansas Mike Huckabee despite his violent history and vehement protestations from prosecutors and victims’ family members.

He was most recently in jail for alleged second-degree rape of a child.

As can be seen at the link, the suspect is black the victims are White.

The "Wrong View"...

A program proposed at the University of Minnesota would result in required examinations of teacher candidates on "white privilege" as well as "remedial re-education" for those who hold the "wrong" views, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.


As I've written here before,

Now, here I have to pause and point out a rather obvious fact in regards to "White Privilege".

What ding-a-lings like the above (and the manipulative professors who encourage them) consider America's historical "White Privilege" is not uncoincidentally connected to the era ranging from America's creation (by Whites -that being people of indigenous European descent-) between 1776 and 1787, to around 1975 when America was 90% White.

In other words, "White Privilege" existed in America the same way English Privilege existed in England. Or French Privilege existed in France, or Indian Privilege existed in India or Japanese Privilege existed in Japan or Jewish Privilege exists in Israel and so on and so forth.

If a nation is 90% White, then its political, academic and cultural institutions are naturally going to reflect that reality.
Just as a nation that is 90% Arab is going to reflect Arab cultural outlooks and institutions.

If you were to grow up in China, you might find their history, media and academic outlooks to be decidedly Asiacentric.
But would you be so dense as to suggest that the Asian Race is just a social construct and that it is systemic racism in Chinese society, manifested in "Asian Privilege", that accounts for the total lack of Turkish, Ethiopian or Brazilian Heads of State there?


White Guilt Fades...

Since the start of his presidency, U.S. President Barack Obama’s approval rating has declined more among non-Hispanic whites than among nonwhites, and now, fewer than 4 in 10 whites approve of the job Obama is doing as president.


"Two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government. Nature, habit and opinion has drawn indelible lines of distinction between them."
- Thomas Jefferson



WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has concluded that the Obama administration can lawfully pay the community group Acorn for services provided under contracts signed before Congress banned the government from providing money to the group.


Criticism of Acorn escalated in September, when two conservative activists released videos they had recorded using secret cameras of Acorn workers in several cities. The activists had posed as a pimp and a prostitute seeking financial advice. Instead of raising objections, the Acorn employees counseled the couple on how to hide their illicit activities and avoid paying taxes.


Amazing how when a lefty organization is outed as a corrupt organization the journalists involved in outing them are called "activists" rather than undercover journalists.

And don't be too surprised over the AG's actions.

Remember this?

President Obama’s Justice Department continues to stonewall inquiries about why it dropped a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party.

The episode—which Bartle Bull, a former civil rights lawyer and publisher of the left-wing Village Voice, calls “the most blatant form of voter intimidation I’ve ever seen”—began on Election Day 2008. Mr. Bull and others witnessed two Black Panthers in paramilitary garb at a polling place near downtown Philadelphia. {snip}

One of them, they say, brandished a nightstick at the entrance and pointed it at voters and both made racial threats. Mr. Bull says he heard one yell “You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker!”

In the first week of January, the Justice Department filed a civil lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party and three of its members, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring voters with the weapon, uniforms and racial slurs. In March, Mr. Bull submitted an affidavit at Justice’s request to support its lawsuit.

When none of the defendants filed any response to the complaint or appeared in federal district court in Philadelphia to answer the suit, it appeared almost certain Justice would have prevailed by default. Instead, the department in May suddenly allowed the party and two of the three defendants to walk away.

The Saxon...

by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

Lambs And Turkeys...

Sixty-three percent (63%) of U.S. voters say political correctness prevented the military from responding to warning signs from Major Nidal Malik Hasan that could have prevented the Fort Hood shootings from taking place.


Yes, political correctness caused the Fort Hood tragedy. But when?
When did political correctness cause it.
The day before?
Five years before?


Once foreigners are here; living here, raising children here etc.... political correctness has already paved the way for catastrophe's like Fort Hood and others.

An illegal alien has been sentenced to life in prison for breaking into an 83-year-old woman's home, grabbing her by the throat, smashing her head into furniture, saturating her with gasoline and setting her body on fire while she was still alive – all to cover up his check-fraud scam after she hired him to cut her lawn.


Ramon Alvarado, 33, and his cousin, Jose Alvarado, 37, were hired to do yard work for Lila Meizel at her home in Wheaton, Md. They worked for the woman for two years, and Meizel often gave the men soda, food and extra tips.

Jose's wife, Ana Rodas, 33, was also arrested in connection with the murder that took place the day before Thanksgiving last year.


Both Ramon and Jose Alvarado had previous criminal records in Montgomery County. Jose had a history of check fraud, according to the Washington Examiner. Ramon had a warrant out for his arrest for driving a car without a license or registration.


So there you have the "migrant-laborer" hardworking family man who worries about his momma........and burns little old ladies alive.

This kind of thing happens quite a bit. White family (desperate to prove to the PC gods that they aren't "racist") takes in non-White who robs, rapes and/or murders members of said family.

An illegal alien – who has been deported more than a dozen times – is being charged with first-degree murder after allegedly beating a woman to death when she took him in, gave him work and treated him like family.

Paulette Locklear, 64, and several members of her church built a small house on her property in Fayetteville, N.C., for 45-year-old Julio Cesar Ramos of Honduras, North Carolina's WRAL-TV reported.

Locklear's nephew, Jeremy Brewington, said Locklear reached out to Ramos.

"The family just helped him any way we could," Brewington said. "He would come and help us work, and we would pay him. He's just been sort of part of the family for a long time." Locklear's brother, Paul Brewington, said Ramos was homeless and living in the woods when his sister gave him a place to stay, according to the report.

"We just started helping him and giving him food and giving him clothes and stuff," he said. "That's what she was doing to this fellow – just giving him a helping hand."

But on Tuesday Ramos began shattering windows and trying to break into her home. She called 9-1-1 just before being beaten to death with a blunt object outside of her house.

"We didn't think he would do anything of this nature. We didn't really see that in him," he said. "He would get angry sometimes and would leave ... for a while. (He) would come back, and we would take him in and help him any way we could."


And how many local people, people they knew (their people) , did this family and church build houses for?

The seeking out of specifically non-White people to lay gifts before like an adoring heathen before a golden calf is absolutely a form of worship.

Not surprisingly, more often than not, such worship leads to literal human sacrifice.


Climate And Race...

Leading British climate change scientists are facing calls for a public inquiry after hacked email exchanges appeared to indicate that scientific data may have been manipulated to strengthen the case for man-made global warming.


When and wherever The Left comes into power, truth is hidden, denied and eventually criminalized. EVERY TIME!
Science, like religion and the media, becomes the whore of Leftist regimes.

Keep the above story in mind the next time the issue of race and science comes up.

The truth is race is a deep and significant reality. The fortunes of any nation are entirely dependent upon the racial content of it's citizenry.

The thirdworld is not the thirdworld due to an incredibly long run of unbelievable bad luck.

Race is not a social construct. Societies are racial constructs.

Race, like the weather, is observable. It needn't take a "scientist" to inform you of either. Some scientists are indeed honest and pursue truth. They are generally attacked and reprimanded by their peers.

It's easy to tell the honest ones from the liars though, as the liars generally always state, "hey, who you gonna believe, me, or your own lying eyes?"


Insight Or Confusion?.

Then along came Sarah, and the attacks became particularly heinous. And I realized something even more chilling about the Left. Leftists not only sacrifice and disrespect women, but it's far worse: many are perpetuators.

The Left's behavior towards Palin is not politics as usual. By their laser-focus on her body and her sexuality, leftists are defiling her.

They are wilding her. And they do this with the full knowledge and complicity of the White House.


As every woman knows, leering looks, lurid words, and veiled threats are intended to evoke terror. Sexual violence is a form of terrorism.

The American Left has a long history of defiling people to control and break them. The hard core '60s leftists were masters of guerrilla warfare, like the Symbionese Liberation Army repeatedly raping Patty Hearst. Huey P. Newton sent a male Black Panther to the hospital, bloodied and damaged from a punishment of sodomy.

The extreme Left still consider themselves warriors, righteous soldiers for their Marxist cause. With Palin, they use sexual violence as part of their military arsenal.

Palin is not the only intended victim. As Against Our Will described, the brutality is also aimed at men. By forcing men to witness Palin's violation, the Left tries to emasculate conservative men and render them powerless.


The irony here is that Palin represents the Left more than the Right. A woman in politics just flat out runs contrary to traditional Western Culture. That she does so at the expense of her family life makes her leftist credentials all the more pronounced.

Still, that the Left hates her is not inconsistent. The Left hates everything. Most of all, themselves. That they would cannibalize one of their own is hardly shocking.

Sick Of Hearing About This Story...

I know it has been all over the news with wall-to-wall coverage on CNN, FOX, CNBS etc... And we all know about the marches being organized, the made-for-TV movies in the works, the various novels and magazine articles being written and (not least of all) the numerous and unending speeches by politicians, both local and national.....still, I thought I'd post it here never-the-less and redundant though it may be.

The Denver Police Department arrested 32 men and juvenile boys after a months-long undercover investigation into what police said were racially motivated assaults and robberies in downtown Denver, including the LoDo entertainment district.

A task force composed of Denver police, the FBI and the Denver district attorney's office investigated 26 incidents in which groups of black males verbally harassed, assaulted and at times robbed White or Latino males, according to Denver Police Chief Gerry Whitman.

All of the suspects are young black males, most of whom told police they were associated with either the Rollin' 60s Crips gang or the Black Gangster Disciples gang.

They are charged with varying counts of bias-motivated assault and, in some cases, robbery — all felony crimes.

"White or Latino"??? hmm.

Just a hunch, but I'm willing to bet that means they once attacked a light skinned Latino they thought was White.

What You Fight For...

They Despise what has become of the Britain they once fought to save. It's not our country they anymore, they say, in sorrow and anger.


Strange how everything the Allies accused those "evil" Nazis of attempting to do (like totalitarian government, banning books and invading other nations in a bid to create a global empire) is exactly what the Allies have been doing since 1945.


Who Won?...

A FORMER soldier who served in Iraq has been barred from joining the police because of a tattoo.
Craig Briggs was told the ‘England’ tattoo on his forearm “might be seen as racist or cause offence” by Greater Manchester Police.

The clock is ticking down to the moment when The Western people realize they have been duped for the past 60+ years and are slatted for extermination. Their history, their culture even their very identity is being denied them. Their nations are being flooded with foreigners and their extinction is being celebrated as "Diversity'.

Of course those who are pushing hardest for multiculturalism for White nations, are allowed to bemoan it themselves,

The demographic catastrophe presently decimating American Jewry is not in dispute. Without numbing you with statistics, the basic facts are absolutely clear and chilling. The 6 million Jews in America will probably number no more than a couple of million by midcentury. This would make the Jewish percentage of the American population about the same as it was during the Civil War. After the Civil War, the Jews in America tripled as a result of European Jewish immigration in the first two decades of the 20th century.

And when the Congress acted in 1924 to control immigration for the purposes of sustaining America's historic culture and ethnicity, it was Jews, Emmanuel Celler in particular, who fought it every step of the way. But They eventually got their way in 1965 and the third world flood gates were thrown open.

Bookmark this article from Newsweek.
Keep it in mind the next time you see a warm and celebratory article in the Old Media about the demographic replacement of Whites in their own lands being described as Diversity.
It seems it's okay for Jews to lament their demographic decline (it's also okay for them to have a racial homeland) but it is not okay for Whites.
And what the Old Media and Jewish groups like the ADL seems to gloat over, is the fact that Whites have gone from being 90% of the population of America (in 1965) to being on the verge of becoming a minority group in 2008!

A national Latino group said Thursday it is fighting back against what it considers to be "hate speech" that has emerged from the debate over immigration.

National Council of La Raza President Janet Murguia announced plans to pressure television network executives and candidates seeking their parties' presidential nominations to clamp down on such remarks.

Following the violent death of a Moroccan teenager in Cologne, hundreds of immigrants have taken to the streets in nightly demonstrations to protest what they see as evidence of their second-class status in Germany. Police warn the city could be ready to explode.
Every night last week, up to 300 protestors gathered at the spot where Salih died to demand "justice" instead of letting his killer walk free. They are protesting against "racism in Germany" -- but since it appears clear that this case involves self-defense, it's obviously about more than just the unfortunate Salih. It's more about how immigrants and their children feel they are currently being treated in Germany.
"We're sitting on a powder keg," warns former police commissioner Winrich Granitzka, who is also head of the Christian Democratic group in Cologne's city council. "There's the danger we could see a situation like in the suburbs of Paris."

Whites are suppose to smile and take it.

Why? Again who won WWII?

Rabbi Wise's Address

'There are 6,000,000 living, bleeding, suffering arguments in favor of Zionism. They come not to beg, but ask for that which is higher than all material things.

"Soon after, on 3 May 1919, the German army (called the "White Guards of Capitalism" by the Communists), having a force of 9,000, and Marinebrigade Ehrhardt, having a force of 30,000 men, entered Munich and defeated the Communists, after bitter street fights in which over 1,000 volunteer supporters of the government were killed. About 700 men and women were arrested and executed by the victorious Freikorps. Levine was condemned to death for treason."

But....But it also led to the establishment of the United Nations, the fulfillment of Zionist ambitions in the creation of the state of Israel and Jerusalem designated an International City...

Of course the Arabs had a different vision for their homelands and war soon followed.

So, WWI gave us sad stories of six million persecuted Jews and a League of Nations. Neither one took.
WWII gave us sad stories of six million persecuted Jews and the United Nations. This time, both took.
Still, no capital of the world in Jerusalem, and the United Nations has limited power....
WWIII will give us....?

"It's a list of "the world's most powerful people," 100 of the bankers and media moguls, publishers and image makers who shape the lives of billions. It's an exclusive, insular club, one whose influence stretches around the globe but is concentrated strategically in the highest corridors of power.
More than half its members, at least by one count, are Jewish."

"John Hagee, along with other Christian Evangelical leaders, created Christians United for Israel (CUFI) less than two years ago, yet it has already grown into one of the largest and most politically influential Christian grassroots organizations in the country....
Dr. Hagee founded and is the Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, a non-denominational evangelical church that has more than 18,000 members. He is also the President and CEO of John Hagee Ministries, which he says boasts a television and radio audience of 99 million homes.....CUFI considers its defining issue to be the growing challenge of radical Islam, particularly as relates to the security of Israel and the United States. CUFI is incresingly concerned by Iran and its potential nuclear threats. Hagee often alludes to Nazi Germany in order to underline what he believes to be the gravity of the situation:

Third times a charm? Or three strikes and you're out?...

As Western Civilization continues its rapid fall into chaos and ruin, pundits, authors and laymen alike still vex grievous over the mysterious cause of it all and wonder why none of their fellow travelers will either take notice or, when noticing, act.

For instance this article from,

Observing the meltdown of Anglosphere’s cultural hearth over the last few years has been a painful experience, as Britain marches off a cliff toward self-inflicted cultural oblivion. The place has an alarming number of Muslims who openly declare their intention to conquer by demographic means and establish a beachhead sharia-stan in Europe. Yet the British people are not reacting to the threat....Don't Brits understand that in today's war for civilization, the people must lead? Perhaps they were spoiled by Winston Churchill putting away the appeasement creature of his day (Neville Chamberlain) and leading the nation against the Nazis.

Whatever happened to the people who stood alone against Nazi fascism in 1940?

more here

What happened to the people who stood against and ultimately defeated the Nazi’s?

The answer is simple: They went on to implement the policies, the vision of the future they fought for, that were in direct opposition to the Axis/Nazi vision.
Why is it so hard for people to understand that the outcome of WWII represented the defeat of Western Civilization?

All of the policies that so many people now wring their hands over –feminism, abortion, gay rights, mass invasion of (exclusively) Western nations, removal of prayer from schools, increasing State power, progressive and endless rising taxation, “hate crimes”, rewriting Western history to portray Whites as evil, abolition of Freedom of Association, attacks upon the traditional family, etc…began to spread like wildfire AFTER the Axis was defeated and the Allies reigned victorious...

It's not just about what or who you fight against, but what and for whom you are fighting for that will measure the ramifications of the outcome of either defeat or victory...

The Good Samaritan, In Real Life...

Modern England,

A 'manipulative and callous' girl of 13 who relentlessly tormented a vicar's daughter to the point where she jumped 50ft to her death was found guilty of manslaughter yesterday.

Hatice Can and accomplice Oluwakemi Ajose, then 17, subjected Rosimeiri Boxall to a terrifying campaign of bullying for two years.

Rosimeiri, 19, who had been adopted and brought to Britain from a Brazilian slum, was punched, slapped, pulled by her hair, sprayed in the eyes with deodorant and branded a 'whore' and a 'slag'.

Minutes before she jumped from a third floor window, she was told by Can: 'Do you want to die? Jump out of the window.'

When Rosimeiri replied: 'Do you want me to jump?' the 13-year-old said simply: 'Yes'.

As she lay dying on the street below, Can looked over her body and said: 'Serves you right, bitch.'


Last night, the Reverend Simon Boxall, who adopted Rosi in Brazil with his wife Rachel before bringing her to Britain, said: 'We continue to pray for those who are responsible for Rosi's death. We want them to know that we forgive them. That does not mean that what they did doesn't matter, of course it does.

'Forgiveness means that we refuse to be shackled by bitterness and our prayer is that forgiveness will allow the girls to be released from the burden of what they did.'

He added: 'We still miss her greatly, but we do not for an instant regret the decision we took to adopt her."


A Turkish girl and a black girl provoke a Brazilian girl into jumping to her England. And the "good Samaritans", who brought the Brazilian girl into The West are, as usual, a clueless White Christian couple (look at the pictures at the link for a perfect example of, 'a picture is worth a thousand words'). And as to be expected, the good White Christians forgive the perpetrators, because, well, that's what Jesus would do.

41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

-Matthew 5: 41-44

Social Dysfunction And Diversity...

The recent tragedy at an army base in Texas illustrated the destructive and deadly consequences of "diversity" as well as the now ingrained Marxist mindset that engulfes our society (as some attempted to put a positive spin on the fact that the VICTIMS were diverse).

Over and over we see that social depravity and tolerance of multiculturalism go hand in hand.

GRANITE FALLS, Wash. (AP) - Granite Falls residents are suspicious of any newcomers, let alone a Muslim native of Pakistan who moved to this rugged, blue-collar mining town to open his own bar.

But 54-year-old Haroon Saleem has thrived, winning over the town with hard work and an easy smile. He has become so popular that, on Nov. 3, he won the mayor's job in a landslide, getting 61 percent of the more than 800 votes cast...


His challenges as new mayor are just beginning. Rolling Stone magazine in 2003 labeled Granite Falls as a methamphetamine town, an image that lingers. There are tense relations between Saleem and the police chief. Just this past week, local TV news crews descended after the fire chief was accused of drinking on the job.



"White Writers"?...

The WGA West's 2009 Hollywood Writers Report finds "little if any" improvement in employment and earnings for women and minority writers. The report, authored by UCLA professor Darnell Hunt and recently posted on the WGA Web site, found that women scribes remain stuck at 28% of TV employment and 18% in features while the minority share has been frozen at 6% since 1999.

"White males continue to dominate in both the film and television sectors," Hunt wrote.


Probably less than 10% of these "white writers" are actually White.

Only 22% of Americans now believe "the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews," down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.

How deeply Jewish is Hollywood? When the studio chiefs took out a full-page ad in the Los Angeles Times a few weeks ago to demand that the Screen Actors Guild settle its contract, the open letter was signed by: News Corp. President Peter Chernin (Jewish), Paramount Pictures Chairman Brad Grey (Jewish), Walt Disney Co. Chief Executive Robert Iger (Jewish), Sony Pictures Chairman Michael Lynton (surprise, Dutch Jew), Warner Bros. Chairman Barry Meyer (Jewish), CBS Corp. Chief Executive Leslie Moonves (so Jewish his great uncle was the first prime minister of Israel), MGM Chairman Harry Sloan (Jewish) and NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker (mega-Jewish). If either of the Weinstein brothers had signed, this group would have not only the power to shut down all film production but to form a minyan with enough Fiji water on hand to fill a mikvah.

The person they were yelling at in that ad was SAG President Alan Rosenberg (take a guess). The scathing rebuttal to the ad was written by entertainment super-agent Ari Emanuel (Jew with Israeli parents) on the Huffington Post, which is owned by Arianna Huffington (not Jewish and has never worked in Hollywood.)

The Jews are so dominant, I had to scour the trades to come up with six Gentiles in high positions at entertainment companies. When I called them to talk about their incredible advancement, five of them refused to talk to me, apparently out of fear of insulting Jews. The sixth, AMC President Charlie Collier, turned out to be Jewish.

More "White Privilege"...

Nearly three years ago, in April of 2006, Jennifer Morelock and Jason Woycio, a white couple from Carroll County, made the unfortunate and ultimately fatal mistake of venturing into West Baltimore. They were in a car on Arunah Avenue when somebody shot both of them to death.

Later that same day, a Western District police officer, acting “on a tip,” according to police reports, (translation: somebody snitched) stopped Temple in the neighborhood. According to those same police reports, the officer asked Temple if he could search the contents of his cell phone for the numbers of suspected gang members. Police said Temple consented.

In that cell phone was a text message – in the outbox, unfortunately for Temple – that read “I killed 2 white people around my way 2day and 1 of them was a woman.”

It looked like game, set, match for the cops and prosecutors, but then those annoying things like the exclusionary rule and the Fourth Amendment got in the way. Prosecutors said that the arresting officer who searched Temple’s cell phone needed a search warrant, because the text messages weren’t in plain view.

So in June of 2006 the case was nolle prosequi and Temple walked free of first-degree

And yes, I did mention that the race of the victims and the suspect is a factor. Temple is a young black man, only 17 when he was charged with murder. The reaction of city leaders, the local media and the entire nation would have been radically different if a black couple had been gunned down and a 17-year-old white kid got cut loose after being found with the very incriminating text message in his cell phone that read “I killed 2 black people around my way 2day and 1 of them was a woman.”

This city would still be neck deep in protesters...



Beware The Tall Grass!!!

Originally posted January, 2008

This election year illegal immigration (as opposed to legal, which is just as civilizationally devastating) will be a hot topic. No doubt the Left, Corporate America and the Mexican Government (with its sub-branches in America such as La Raza) have been hard at work on new tactics leading up to the election. After their brilliant decision to rampage through America’s streets burning the American flag failed to win the hearts and minds of Americans, we can only assume that next time they’ll perhaps try to burn down an entire city. (It’s important to note that the decision of the protest organizers to march through the streets of America in an effort to shut down cities was a tactic meant to frighten the American people and Government into submission. In this, what they did was absolutely no different than what the terrorists did on 911. And considering that illegals have killed around 60,000 Americans since 2001, they are in fact much more proficient terrorists than every single muslim group on planet Earth put together)

Many people have laid out the reasons why this mass invasion of our country (politely referred to as illegal immigration) is bad economically.

Now, setting aside the rapid spread of new and previously defeated diseases in America by this mass invasion, as well as the rapid rise in violent crimes that are quickly reaching into every city, town and neighborhood from Maine to Oregon, let us just for a moment take them at their word and consider what the pro-immigrant crowd’s argument boils down to.

  1. The illegals are simply doing the jobs Americans will not.
  2. Those jobs in question are the menial jobs such as mowing lawns, picking fruit etc..
  3. If we deport the illegals those jobs will not get done.

Thus we can conclude from the pro-immigrant crowds talking points that the most severe fallout from deporting the illegals would (essentially) be…… taller grass!

Now that point can work no matter where you wish too apply it….unpicked fruit (the horror!), slow service in restaurants (the inhumanity!), disheveled country club landscapes (is there no end to the tragedy!),..

And considering that 95% of Americans eat fast food, cut their own grass and don’t belong to country clubs, its not difficult to figure out who in fact is benefiting from the services attributed to illegals.

Its also worth keeping in mind that if the fruit and vegetable fields in California were vacated of workers and productivity, it would be a boon to regional (as in LOCAL) fruit and vegetable growers.
(How quickly Americans forget that conglomeration of Industry is detrimental to local economies…)

To be fair though, Old Media has been complicit in this forgotten knowledge. The reason being, Old Media (large papers, magazines, networks etc.) has been conglomerated itself and is now part of (as in owned by) the “business community”. As such, it kisses the ass of its benefactors

This can be seen in its two-faced approach to lulling the masses. For example, when they wish to downplay the long-term effect of mass invasion, they give us stories about "Pedro", the lone Mexican migrant worker/day laborer who is only here to raise a few extra pesos for the family back home. Then when they are called upon to protect Corporate America’s assets, hard working- guest worker "Pedro", miraculously morphs into long suffering- hope of tomorrow "Maria". "Maria" is always a hardworking single mother working as a waitress or housekeeper to support 2 lovable Tiny-Tim’ish type children (who are always around ten and never age) and their dog Spot.

(In real life, of course, “Maria” is a 35-year-old welfare recipient with 6 teenage sons, three of whom are in prison and the other three in gangs. But reality doesn’t adequately play on White America’s sympathies)

And for those who fall for the poor third world immigrant bit, just remind them of what country routinely ranks in the top 15 most powerful economies in the world.

I’ll give you a hint; it begins with M ends with O and has an X in the middle.
If they can organize 30 million Mexicans to protest "for change" in America then they can sure as hell do it in Mexico as well...

So as the year progresses towards the election and immigration remains the defining topic of our generation, if you find yourself in a debate with a pro-immigrant shill and they ask, "What would happen without the illegals?", just give them the most obvious and honest answer..."We'd have taller grass!"


A Statistical Portrait...

Income and Wealth

* Per capita income of Hispanics is one half that of non-Hispanic whites, and household net worth is less than one tenth.
* Fifty percent of Hispanic households use some form of welfare, the highest rate of any major population group.


* Hispanics are 3.3 times more likely to be in prison than whites; they are 4.2 times more likely to be in prison for murder, and 5.8 times more likely to be in prison for felony drug crimes.
* Young Hispanics are 19 times more likely than young whites (and slightly more likely than young blacks) to be in youth gangs.


* Hispanics drop out of high school at three times the white rate and twice the black rate.
* Even third-generation Hispanics drop out of school at a higher rate than blacks and are less likely to be college graduates.
* From 1992 to 2003, Hispanic illiteracy in English rose from 35 percent to 44 percent.
* The average Hispanic 12th-grader reads and does math at the level of the average white 8th-grader.

Families and Health

* At 43 percent, the Hispanic illegitimacy rate is twice the white rate, and Hispanic women have abortions at 2.7 times the white rate.
* Hispanics are three times more likely than whites not to have medical insurance, and die from AIDS and tuberculosis at three times the white rate.
* In California, the cost of free medical care for illegal aliens forced 60 hospitals to close between 1993 and 2003.


* Only 33 percent of citizens of Hispanic origin consider themselves “Americans” first. The rest consider themselves either “Hispanic/Latino” or their former nationality first.

"Racist" Without Race?...

Naval Academy leaders are under fire after altering the composition of the military color guard at a World Series game last month so the group wouldn't be made up only of white men.

The Navy Times and other media reported that two white midshipmen were removed from the performance in New York City and replaced with a Pakistani-American man and a white woman so the group would appear more diverse.


I guess somethings are less diverse than others in the military.

Still, the above serves as yet another example of liberalism's duplicitous nature. After all, if (as the lefty-logic is so fond of purporting) there is no such thing as race, then there can be no such thing as racial diversity.


if there is no such thing as race then there can be no such thing as "racism."

Just A Wacky Incident, Nothing More...

A prominent Columbia architecture professor punched a female university employee in the face at a Harlem bar during a heated argument about race relations, cops said yesterday.

Police busted Lionel McIntyre, 59, for assault yesterday after his bruised victim, Camille Davis, filed charges.

McIntyre and Davis, who works as a production manager in the school's theater department, are both regulars at Toast, a popular university bar on Broadway and 125th Street, sources said.

The professor, who is black, had been engaged in a fiery discussion about "white privilege" with Davis, who is white, and another male regular, who is also white, Friday night at 10:30 when fists started flying, patrons said.


I guess he didn't really want to have a conversation about race.

The NY Post is about the only major media outlet to cover this story. And even they treat it as one of those quirky little pieces about 'slice-of-life' New York.

The irony here is that the arguement was over "White privilege", yet the black guy was given a slap on the wrist for the attack. Had he been a White man sucker punching a black woman he would have had swat teams busting down his door, been the focus of national news media and charged with a "hate crime".

Re-Up (Whitey Done Gone...)

On a side street in an old industrial neighborhood, a delivery man stacks a dolly of goods outside a store. Ten feet away stands another man clad in military fatigues, combat boots and what appears to be a flak jacket. He looks straight out of Baghdad. But this isn't Iraq. It's southeast Detroit, and he's there to guard the groceries.

"No pictures, put the camera down," he yells. My companion and I, on a tour of how people in this city are using urban farms to grow their own food, speed off.

In this recession-racked town, the lack of food is a serious problem. It's a theme that comes up again and again in conversations in Detroit. There isn't a single major chain supermarket in the city...


There used to be supermarkets there but crime drove them out of the area.

What happened?

Races in Detroit:

  • Black (81.6%)
  • White Non-Hispanic (10.5%)
  • Hispanic (5.0%)
  • Other race (2.5%)
  • Two or more races (2.3%)
  • American Indian (0.9%)


Probably one of the most emailed-around articles on Election Day was this:

“In western Kenya, relatives, friends and a bull ready for slaughter were massed around the homestead of Barack Obama's late father, awaiting a hoped-for victory for their new favourite son…Leading in US opinion polls over Republican rival John McCain, Obama received some added support in Kenya with special prayer sessions and even a victory prediction from a local witch doctor. [Obama's Kenyan relatives ready bull for slaughter, by Odhiambo Akombo, AFP, November 4, 2008]

If President Obama succeeds in arranging more immigration from Africa, Americans can expect a wide assortment of superstitious behavior that we would find objectionable, to say the least.

In Tanzania, at least 30 albinos have been murdered in the last year because of witchcraft. Their body parts are much desired for sorcery rituals and bring a high price. There is a cross-border trade with Burundi where albinos, including children, are chased down, killed and dismembered. One man was pursued by four armed men and had to hide in the forest for two days.

The purchasers may place a body part near a gold mine to bring the metal to the surface or on a hook as fish bait.

"The killers sell body parts such as arms, legs, hair, skin and genitals, according to police and albino groups.

“Those involved in witchcraft, especially in mining and fishing industries, believe these will enrich them, President Kikwete said last month, calling it a 'stupid belief.'

Local media have reported several incidents of victims left to bleed to death.

'They are cutting us up like chickens,' Msembo said, while pointing to a picture on a wall in her cramped office of a limbless body with the skin on its face peeled off from an incident in 2007." [African albinos killed for body parts, By George Obulutsa, Reuters, November 3, 2008]

As a result, the 200,000 Tanzanian albinos are terrorized and angry that their corpses have become a commodity. In one recent case, a 10-year-old girl was killed and mutilated by a gang to sell the parts.

In Angola and Congo, children are accused surprisingly often of being witches, and often expelled from their families. One investigation counted 432 Angolan street children in a single town who had been accused of witchcraft and turned out.

it was reported in September that accusations of sorcery set off a soccer riot in eastern Congo causing the deaths of 13 people, most of whom were children and teens. [Witchcraft rumor sparks riot at Congo soccer game, AP, September 15, 2008] The blow-up began when one player was suspected of throwing something into the net of the opposing team, which was thought to be "witchcraft." The result was violence and death.

Worse, her case was only the tip of the iceberg.

"An official inquiry into the abuse of African children branded as witches is expected to conclude that there have been at least 50 such cases over five years in London alone.

The investigation is expected to find that cases of sorcery-related abuse are now spreading outside the capital to areas such as Liverpool, Newcastle and parts of Yorkshire—although they remain confined to only a minority of Africans in Britain.

The abuse of the children has ranged from shouting to beating, starving, slashing with knives and razors and, in at least one case, murder." ["Witch child" abuse spreads in Britain, By Jack Grimston Sunday Times, June 25, 2006]

Another shocking murder was "Adam," an unidentified child whose headless torso was found in the Thames in September 2001. The African boy was believed to be between four and six years old and had swallowed a potion containing bone fragments before he died. Investigators concluded that the boy was killed in a ritual murder as a part of African witchcraft. No-one was ever arrested.

After more investigation of missing children in Britain, authorities determined that some 300 black boys aged 4-7 were unaccounted for, leading to fears of widespread child sacrifice. But child protective agencies do not track the many foreign children sent to live in Britain under the care of persons who are not the parents. So the extent of abuse is not really known.

More complicating is the presence of ostensibly Christian churches, populated with African immigrants, which commonly practice exorcisms. ['Exorcisms are part of our culture', By Cindi John BBC News, June 3, 2005]In particular, Congolese and Angolan preachers accept the existence of evil spirits, curses and demonic possession, and weave that belief into their ministries. In some cases, pastors have crossed the line into child abuse in their activities to drive out evil spirits. Social turmoil has been an unfortunate byproduct, with ethnic groups accusing police of racism.


Crime Rates

  • Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.
  • When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife.
  • Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate.
  • The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Interracial Crime

  • Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
  • Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
  • Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
  • Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa.


  • Only 10 percent of youth gang members are white.
  • Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are nine times more likely.


  • Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139 to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39 million.
  • Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are three times more likely.

The table does not gives statistics for Hispanic victims and offenders. But the bottom line on interracial white/black and black/white rape is clear:

In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black females were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.

What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man.

He dined at a lavish
luncheon given by his Egyptian hosts, hugged heads of state and other diplomats
in the corridors and stayed at the Peninsula Hotel, one of the most luxurious in
this Red Sea town. “Mr Mugabe is staying there as a courtesy by the Egyptian
Government,” a hotel spokesman said. Delegates from the opposition Movement for
Democratic Change (MDC) lodged at the Sheraton, while their leader, Morgan
Tsvangirai, remained in Zimbabwe.
The African Union’s public response to Mr
Mugabe’s seizure of power was seen as a key measure of the organisation’s
commitment to democracy after Zimbabwe’s violent run-off elections.

Africa at war: The genocide spilling from the Darfur region of Sudan into
neighboring Chad has captured attention in the United States mainly because of
(belated) media coverage and an aggressive advocacy campaign by concerned
groups, but the prospects of Washington dealing with the problem seem slim.
Darfur, however, is only one of a pox of conflicts that, together with HIV/AIDS,
are depopulating parts of Africa and robbing it of potential wealth from
mineral, oil and gas deposits. Wars have also raged in Chad, Congo, Liberia,
Sierra Leone and Somalia. Were it not for the Iraq war, Washington may have
acted to stop what the Bush administration admits is genocide in Darfur, or
taken steps to prevent the chaos sweeping Somalia after a group affiliated with
al-Qaeda took over the country and left Ethiopia no choice but to invade in
hopes of preventing a more disastrous war. Unfortunately, even designating a

Formerly White ruled South Africa, now in the hands of blacks,
South Africans today are deeply demoralised people. The lights are going out
in homes, mines, factories and shopping malls as the national power authority,
Eskom - suffering from mismanagement, lack of foresight, a failure to maintain
power stations and a flight of skilled engineers to other countries - implements
rolling power cuts that plunge towns and cities into daily chaos.Major
industrial projects are on hold. The only healthy enterprise now worth being
involved in is the sale of small diesel generators to powerless households but
even this business has run out of supplies and spare parts from China.Newly
elected African National Congress (ANC) leader Jacob Zuma, the state
president-in-waiting, narrowly escaped being jailed for raping an HIV-positive
woman last year, and faces trial later this year for soliciting and accepting
bribes in connection with South Africa's shady multi-billion-pound arms deal
with British, German and French weapons manufacturers.Commenting on the massive
power cuts, Trevor Gaunt, professor of electrical engineering at the University
of Cape Town, who warned the government eight years ago of the impending crisis,
said: "The damage is huge, and now South Africa looks just like the rest of
Africa. Maybe it will take 20 years to recover."Last week, for example,
18-year-old Razelle Botha, who passed all her A-levels with marks of more than
90% and was about to train as a doctor, returned home with her father, Professor
Willem Botha, founder of the geophysics department at the University of
Pretoria, from buying pizzas for the family. Inside the house, armed gunmen
confronted them. They shot Professor Botha in the leg and pumped bullets into
Razelle.One severed her spine. Now she is fighting for her life and will never
walk again, and may never become a doctor. The gunmen stole a laptop computer
and a camera.Feeding the perfect storm are the two centres of ANC power in the
country at the moment. On the one hand, there is the ANC in parliament, led by
President Mbeki, who last Friday gave a state-of-the-nation address and
apologised to the country for the power crisis.Mbeki made only the briefest of
mentions of the national Aids crisis, with more than six million people
HIV-positive. He did not address the Scorpions crisis. The collapsing public
hospital system, under his eccentric health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang,
an alcoholic who recently jumped the public queue for a liver transplant,
received no attention. And the name Jacob Zuma did not pass his lips.Zuma, a

this river, you won't see a single sign of development. When the whites left, we
didn't just stay where we were. We went backwards.""The river is the artery of
Congo's economy," he says. "When the Belgians and the Portuguese were here,
there were farms and plantations — cashews, peanuts, rubber, palm oil. There was
industry and factories employing 3,000 people, 5,000 people. But since
independence, no Congolese has succeeded.Around 45,000 people die each month in
the DRC as a result of the social collapse brought on by civil war, according to
a study released in January by the International Rescue Committee. It estimated
the total loss of life between 1998 and April 2007 at 5.4 million. For many
Congolese like Le Blanc, the difficulties of today blot out the cruelties of the
past. "On this river, all that you see — the buildings, the boats — only whites
did that. After the whites left, the Congolese did not work. We did not know how
to. For the past 50 years, we've just declined." He pauses. "They took this

Formerly White ruled New Orleans, now ruled by blacks,
As District Attorney Eddie Jordan descended last week to his moment of
greatest political vulnerability, a group of prominent business leaders met with
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to craft an exit strategy for the beleaguered
prosecutor -- one that chiefly involved giving him a soft landing in a private
sector job, sources familiar with the talk said Tuesday.The unprecedented move
ends a tenure mired in criticism over a widely perceived failure to successfully
prosecute violent criminals, chronic turnover in his office, and most recently
the bizarre disclosure that a robbery suspect fled to Jordan's Algiers house
only to then become a suspect in the shooting of a New Orleans police
officer.Now, Jordan's undoing appears rooted in one of his first official acts:
Systematically firing white employees and replacing them with black applicants
two weeks after taking office. While it's hardly uncommon for politicians to
clean house and install loyalists, a federal jury of eight white and two black
jurors unanimously found that Jordan, who is black, fired 43 employees -- all
white but for one Hispanic -- because of their race.Of 56 total dismissals, 53
of the employees were white. Within six months of his administration, Jordan had
hired 68 people, 92 percent of them African-American. Critics further have
suggested that the firings had the effect of stripping the office of
institutional knowledge and experienced talent, throwing its daily management
into confusion and setting off a trend of poor working conditions and chronic
turnover.This criticism climaxed this summer, when his office dismissed charges
against suspects in the 2006 murders of musician and teacher Dinerral Shavers
and the Central City massacre that left five teenagers dead in the street. Both
cases fell apart, with Jordan claiming uncooperative witnesses.Earlier this
year, Jordan was further lambasted for his office's repeated release of
suspects, even occasionally ones arrested for violent crimes, because his
prosecutors could not make a decision about whether to press charges under the
state mandated deadline. These releases are called "701s," shorthand for Article
701 of the Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure, which states that no one can be
held longer than 60 days on a felony arrest without an indictment.In the latest
and strangest flare-up, police recently questioned Jordan after robbery suspect
Elton Phillips, 20, allegedly fled to his home after holding up a man outside a
nearby Algiers Shell station.-
