Can a Recognizable America Survive a Majority-Minority Future? – Part 2

In the first part of this post I was looking at the contention that a majority-minority United States would devolve into a Lebanon style multi-ethnic state where one of the tribes would dominate the other groups by threat of force.  I don’t see this as necessarily inevitable.  Switzerland is an example of a multi-ethnic state that doesn’t involve coercive means.  I said I would discuss what things would need to be done to avoid the erasure of the America we know.

I think the biggest problem currently plaguing modern-day America is that a divisive ideology has been allowed to infest schools, colleges and other institutions.  This ideology is leftism and it is inherently anti-American propaganda.  It attacks all facets of traditional life.  And piece by piece it has been allowed to assume the role of normalcy.  And always by some twisted logic, justice and kindness are used as the excuse for injustice and oppression.  So, to improve the lot of minorities and women, white men must be discriminated against by means of affirmative action.  And to make sexually confused people not feel uncomfortable a wedding baker has to either be coerced into pretending he believes in same sex marriage or bankrupted and driven out of business.  Confronting these things is the obvious and effective way to put a stop to the primary effects of this poisonous ideology.  But it’s just as important to oppose the propaganda and proselytizing efforts that are taking place in schools and corporations.  And that will require national, local and individual action.  President Trump has taken the first action by appointing conservative judges to the federal courts and specifically the Supreme Court.  Once these judges begin removing constitutional protection behind some of these programs like “same sex marriage” the States can make laws to eliminate some of these egregious court overreaches.  And once those laws are in place local groups like PTAs and school districts can start eliminating the impact these programs have on children.  At the college level it will be necessary to concentrate on the State and local colleges.  The Ivy League and lesser private colleges are very heavily infested with leftists and will probably have to be avoided until they either change or go broke.

It goes without saying that some States like East and West Coast blue states will resist any reversal of these policies.  It would be unrealistic to believe that just a few years will be needed to change this situation.  I assume the only way for blue state residents to avoid the leftist regimes they live under would be to move to red states.

As for the demographic shift to a majority minority population, I would say that many local areas with overwhelming minority populations will go the same route as Boston did with the Irish and New York did with Eastern European Jews.  People will vote in their own kind.  But if this fails to bring the American Dream, they will vote for someone else who will.  People coming to America are looking for the peace and prosperity they’ve heard about.  If a Chinese immigrant living in the Research Triangle in North Carolina has a choice to vote for a white pro-business republican or a Chinese Occupy Wall Street socialist I think the republican has a pretty good chance of winning the vote.  And if it’s a choice between a white republican and a black democrat from the inner city then I don’t think the black democrat has a chance.  As for the impoverished third world refugees currently flooding the country and clogging up the welfare rolls, they need to be ejected.  The simplest way to do that is cut off the social services and enforce the laws targeting employers of illegal immigrants.  And in general, social benefits need to be eliminated even for legal immigrants.  And finally, even legal immigration needs to be curtailed down to a trickle.

If all these ideas were pursued, it would go a long way to stabilizing this country and give us enough time to acculturate the current flood of immigrants.  Will it happen?  Hard to say.  But it will only happen if people demand it.  If we just sit back or vote in the same tired hacks, the Bushes and the Romneys, then the America we know will be replaced by a leftist nightmare where everything we believed in has been destroyed.  Trump has made a good start.  It’s up to all of us to keep the momentum going.

18JUL2018 – OCF Update

Greetings readers old and new.  As is my want, or as less pretentious people would say, my habit, I like to let you know what is coming up on the site.  This week is my annual stay-cation.  For eight full days I make believe that my corporate masters have been swallowed up by some beneficent plague that only spared the good.  I revel in the joys of summer and put all cares aside.  After monsoon-like thunderstorms deluged us yesterday, the world has been swept clean and the air is hot and dry just the way I like it.  I’m hosting my annual family reunion on Saturday but with days off on both sides of the big event, I see plenty of time to produce excellent OCF posts all week.

  • I’m renting the “Contemporary Series” version of the Sigma 150-600 lens and the Sony 90mm Macro lens.  They should arrive today and allow me to post on how they perform for the things I would use them for.
  • I plan to yammer on about the joys of summer.
  • I have a photo post I’m going to write about moths and butterflies and maybe other insects in my area.
  • I have some things to say about several political topics.
  • I’ll start reading some more sci-fi which may provide a review this week.
  • I plan on doing some classic movie reviews.
  • I might have some country music reviews coming up too.
  • And I plan to include this summer’s installment of my rant about the Twilight Zone.

Looks like a good week to visit the site.

Morale

Back in the Bronze and Iron Ages an army won a battle based on the strategy and tactics of its general and the training and discipline of the troops.  But the wild card that could turn victory into a rout was morale.  Sometimes something ridiculous like a peal of thunder issuing from the wrong quadrant of the sky or a priest finding the wrong color entrails in a sacrifice would be enough to spook an entire army and snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory.

But this is the Information Age.  We’re too smart to be cowed by superstition or fooled by clumsy lies.  Yeah, right.

Nowadays morale is the business of the media.  They tell us who will win elections and who is on the right side of history and what is beyond the pale.  And morale can be the difference between someone going to vote or staying home.  So, morale is a real factor in human affairs but one that is difficult for the man on the street to measure or even discuss meaningfully.

Luckily, I’m not the man on the street.  I’m a pundit wannabe who has to package a bunch of zeroes and ones onto an electronic page to try and entertain my long-suffering readers.  So, I can talk till the cows come home and might even bump into the truth if I’m not careful.

Here are two questions:

  • What is it worth to the Right to have someone like Trump tell the world that the Emperor has no clothes?
  • What is the result when the Deep State and the Media fire point blank at Donald Trump for eighteen months without a single scratch and all he has to do is make a disparaging noise and say fake news?

The answers are:

  1. It’s worth everything.
  2. The result is that the Media is a spent force.

I’ll explain.  It’s been thirty years since Ronald Reagan left office.  That’s how long it’s been since a Republican won a fight with the Press.  Bush Senior, Bob Dole, W, McCain, Romney, JEB!, you name them.  They’ve all been nothing but cannon fodder.  They can’t fight and they won’t fight.  Having a fighter in the White House is worth more than having seventy seats in the Senate and three hundred seats in the House.  It can’t be overstated.  Every day we can hear and see the results of his run-ins with reporters and the startling statements he makes about politicians, business leaders and foreign leaders.  And every day he blows up some other sacred cow or boondoggle.  And the cumulative effect of this is all the Sacred Cows have been discredited.  The term fake news isn’t just a zinger.  It’s become the default opinion about anything the Media says.  Used Car Salesmen are considered more trustworthy.  As I said above, the value of this cannot be overstated.

And so, the Media is a toothless tiger.  They’ve become the subject of scorn and abuse.  And the multiple media victims of the #metoo campaign and the recent case of a reporter having an affair with a federal employee to obtain classified documents only reinforces the impression that a career in journalism is only one level above crack whore.

So, for the Right Wing, all of this is like a pardon from the Governor to a Death Row prisoner.  Even up to six months ago when the Press would breathlessly report the latest Stormy Daniels tidbit or Mueller leak, Republicans would run around in circles shouting that the sky was falling.  I think that is finally over.  Even the most gutless Republican has finally learned to ignore all of this junk, once and for all.

 

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  It doesn’t even consider the morale boosts that come from a President who can with the stroke of a pen wipe out Coal and CO2 legislation in the EPA or pardon a rancher being harassed and imprisoned by activist judges.  And with Trump in the White House, even formerly unreliable Supreme Court judges suddenly hand down a string of right wing decisions.  And the President fills the federal courts with judges who won’t dismantle the culture in order to satisfy bizarre social justice whims.  And with his latest Supreme Court recommendation, he more than credibly fulfills the long hoped for but always frustrated dream of a reliably conservative Supreme Court willing to reverse the transparently unconstitutional decisions of the past on affirmative action, aberrant sexual behavior and first and second amendment violations.

And so, to rap this thing up, I am saying that in addition to all the things President Trump is doing to improve the country, one of the biggest benefits he provides is the boost to morale.  And this morale boost is just the thing that may get you through the tough battle when everything else is almost even.  If we ever get to the point where things are riding on the razor’s edge, high morale may be the thing that carries us over the finish line first.  Remember this the next time the naysayers say nay and the bell tollers toll doom.  It’s fake news all the way down.  Keep the faith baby.

Can a Recognizable America Survive a Majority-Minority Future? – Part 1

The ZMan wrote a very interesting post called, “No Easy Answers.”  It’s an analysis of the consequences of large scale non-European immigration into the United States, its consequences and an opinion on the useful response that white Americans should have.  I’ll critique the essential portions of the essay to show what I think is the situation.  Note that I’ve cut and pasted several of his sentences together to save some space.  His text is in bold face font.

 

“Given current immigration and fertility numbers, America will be a majority-minority country within a generation. The crisis of our age is not just how we respond to this reality, but how we come to accept it.  The civic nationalists will move heaven and earth in order to avoid facing demographic reality.  For the recently red-pilled, all of their efforts were based on the belief that the solution was simple. Just red-pill everyone and the problem is solved.”

I agree with this analysis and the characterization of the reactions of the civic nationalists and the newly woke dissident right.

 

“The possibility that liberal democracy inevitably leads to cultural suicide is unpleasant, so even the red-pilled look the other way.  The fact is, another bit of that dreaded demographic reality is that what comes next cannot include the current system of governance. In a multicultural society, everyone’s primary loyalty is to their group. Liberal democracy assumes people are loyal to their narrow economic interests. In a majority-minority society, this cannot possibly work.  What comes next for us is what we see in the Middle East. In every country, one group dominates the rest, imposing their idea of order on the society. Saddam controlled Iraq for his people. The Persians run Iran. The Muslims run Lebanon, where every hill and valley may as well be its own country. The rule in multi-cultural, multi-tribal societies, is that one tribe rules the rest. That’s our future. The question is which groups will come to dominate the rest and what sort of system will they impose in order to remain in charge.”

ZMan’s thesis is that in a majority-minority society the form of government will devolve into a rule by the strongest tribe.  The implied condition is that the rule is enforced by the threat of military or street violence.  His examples are middle-eastern dictatorships.  I’m not convinced of this for a couple of reasons.  One reason is the existence of places like Switzerland and Singapore where a multi-ethnic state exists in a reasonably peaceful coexistence.  And secondly a case could be made that the immigration of the Irish and the Eastern and Southern Europeans during the late 19th and early 20th century was an analogous if not equivalent example of a majority-minority situation that while disrupting and modifying the United states, did not destroy the country.  The American culture was attractive and strong enough to subsume the new immigrant populations and produce a changed but recognizable United States.  The real difference this time is the degree to which there is a significant portion of the American people who are actively working to destroy the existing culture through anti-American and specifically anti-white activities and propaganda.  It seems to me the focus of white Americans should be identifying the people and institutions actively working to destroy our people and work to destroy them instead.  And the reason I think this will work is that recently there have been some successes.  The Supreme Court case where the wedding baker was exonerated based on freedom of religion.  The other recent Supreme Court decision that bears on this is the Ohio state law that allowed clearing the voting rolls of ineligible voters.  These affirmations of the clear intent of constitutional safeguards will allow the United States to continue to function as the rational and enlightened sort of country it’s always been.  And these rulings occurred even before Anthony Kennedy is replaced.  Once he has been, I could see a conservative Supreme Court ending affirmative action.  Now, the argument against this is that something like ending affirmative action will never be allowed to happen.

But that will be the test.  If the ZMan is right then even if the whole white population is “woke,” nothing will be done to alleviate the anti-white activity.  But if I’m right then with someone like Trump, a republican who’s actually on our side, we should make some headway and see some victories won.  In the next part of this post I’ll try to think of concrete actions that need to be taken.

10JUL2018 – OCF Update

So, I got a surprise YouTube plug by Captain Capitalism where I advertise.  Thanks Aaron.  I figured it out when the site traffic spiked to stratospheric levels.  Aaron is a fan of the Southwest landscape photography so I reposted a Zion photo collection to go along with the every other day Grand Canyon Photos of the Day.  Hello Captain Capitalism readers and viewers.

I’ve been guiltily spending too much time reading the Leftists hyperventilate over Kennedy’s retirement  and the subsequent mouth-frothing over Kavanaugh.  I’ll have to light a candle at the shrine of Saint Schadenfreude, the Patron Saint of Spiteful Bastards.

But now back to work.  I’m about half way through the fourth volume of the Galaxy’s Edge series.  It took me a little while to make up my mind about this series but I’m convinced now.  The combat scenes, and those comprise a good chunk of the books, are first rate.  The question is where this story is heading.  The Galaxy has been cracking up for the whole length of the series so something’s gotta give soon.

My next foray into Trump humor, I think, will have a literary or historical flavor, perhaps touching on a Roman or Athenian theme.  I always imagine President Trump as akin to the Steinbrenner character on Seinfeld.  Some might think this disrespectful but I feel a kind of ownership over the man as if he were some kind of comic book character that I can summon up to amuse me while also befuddling my enemies in real life.  It’s an odd paradox I have built up around him but I have nothing but affection for the man who basically saved us single-handedly from slavery under the Clinton Crime Family.

Listening to ZMan’s guest spot on that podcast a few days ago has gotten me thinking about what I actually believe is the correct way to think and act in the increasingly hostile world that we live in.  He made some very good points about what is important and what is a waste of time and I want to try to sort through the options and come up with a rational approach to interacting with friends, enemies and neutral parties.  I don’t know if that’s one post or a few but I’m getting started on it.

And finally, I have some more macro photos of bugs and flowers and stuff and more shots from the Grand Canyon.  Tonight, I caught a Polyphemus moth and I want to take some photos of it before letting it go.  Maybe I’ll get lucky and it’ll lay some eggs.  The caterpillars are really cool looking.

So stay tuned.

10JUL2018 – American Greatness Post of the Day – Not Your Father’s Supreme Court

Jesse Merriam (link below)  says Kavanaugh is the best pick for the Right because he thinks in terms of effects on regulal Americans.  Merriam says:

“As I wrote for Real Clear Politics last week, Kavanaugh was the right pick, because the other candidates, though strong conservatives, “have thin or questionable records on the defining issue of the 2016 election—whether American sovereignty, and the forgotten American worker, will once again play a critical role in our polity.”

Brett Kavanaugh was the only one of Trump’s candidates who has repeatedly interpreted American statutory and constitutional law against the background of our national sovereignty. In case after case, Judge Kavanaugh has sought to understand our immigration law, trade regulations, and constitutional guarantees in light of how they affect average Americans.”

I don’t know much about the surety of judicial rating systems so I hope he’s right.  We have been disappointed before.  But I’ll say for now I think we’ve gotten an upgrade from Kennedy.

PJ Media Has One of the Weirder Posts I’ve Seen

Feminists Clash with Transgenders at London Pride Parade

I quote that great healer of rifts, Rodney King, “Why can’t we all just get along?”  So apparently the only place where L and T get along is in a BLT.  A group called “Get the L Out” wants lesbians to opt out of LGBTQ because they hold transgenders responsible for “Conversion Therapy and Rape Culture.”  What does it mean when even other deviant groups don’t want to include you?  Is the enemy of my enemy  just really confusing?

More ZMan – A Very Long Interview on Luke Ford’s Podcast

ZMan was on a podcast with a guy named Luke Ford (link below).  It was almost three hours long!  But there was some very good information if you are looking for ZMan’s take on the way the future of a multi-racial America should be addressed.  A participant named Ecce got into a dispute with Z about what could be done about the changes taking place in America.  Ecce talked about running for elected office and some other ideas for turning around the demographic changes.  ZMan basically said that the only important action was to get the white population “woke” to the fact that they needed to vote their interests as white people in order to thrive.   The other take-away I heard from him was that he did not believe that republican democracy was going to be a workable political system in a minority-majority America.  So that was the gist of it.  He had a funny idea for helping wake people up.  He said we should leave little slips of paper in bookstore books that said “It’ alright to be white.”  Interesting idea.

So, it’s a very long podcast and I’ve given you the main ideas but it is an interesting discussion.  And the ZMan can get testy when he thinks someone isn’t saying something constructive.  My one thought is that what Trump is doing on immigration and the fight to get non-liberal judges can actually do a lot to help people on our side change conditions in America to something less unfair to the white population.  So I see the Trumpocalypse to be an outcome of white backlash against the Leftist attack.

The ZMan Has a Post “The Haunting” About the Disruption of Sex Roles in Western Society

http://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=14329

ZMan talks about the present disruption that afflicts young men and women and how it has led to all the aberrant behavior we see today.  His conclusion is that the society we’ve allowed to evolve no longer functions to bring men and women together to form normal functioning families.  Well, that seems accurate. But it doesn’t go into what needs to be done.  I think it goes without saying that leaving things the way they are will only make the problem worse.  What needs to happen is for the society at large to incentivize young people to get married and raise families.  Lobby for government policies that make families affordable; school vouchers, tax deductions for dependents and a subsidy for married stay at home moms, tax benefits for companies that provide family benefits to their employees.  And on the individual front it’s necessary for all of us to start recreating traditional social organizations to provide a place for young people to meet.  If the churches and the old line fraternal organizations have been converged and destroyed it’s necessary to form new ones.  With the Supreme Court finally out of liberal hands perhaps it’s possible that the right of free association may resurface and we can again organize our personal lives to exclude the mentally ill and the disruptively abnormal.  I think we’re in a bad place but I think it will improve when we have more control over the anti-traditional forces that are continuously attacking the normal roles of men and women in a functional society.  Anyway, that’s my thought.
