Google has an AI called Gemini that can generate images. People have been trying to force it to create pictures of white men but it’s almost impossible. It will make black people or any other race but white without a problem but white people are a big problem. So you can get black vikings and a pope that’s an Indian woman or any number of interesting anachronisms like a 16th century French King who’s Chinese but no white men. Fascinating. Google says they’re working on it.
Matt Walsh made this statement on his show and Media Matters made a clip of it and put it up on Twitter as a gotcha against him. Well, guess what? It’s a true statement.
If you listen to the clip he gives proof. Uber had someone giving a diversity training to its employees and after running through the sins of white people disrespecting non-whites, he mentions that it’s also a good idea not to use anti-white slurs. Well apparently this little bit of fair play got the guy fired. So the game only works one way, against white people.

I guess Musk is serious about speaking the truth when it’s not popular or even safe. But it makes him a more relatable figure. Now if only he’d get around to that billion dollar funding for OCF. Then I’d call him a genius.
Here's a gentle suggestion to our elite corporate masters from one of their own. https://t.co/7UlzUQaE5N

ArthurinCali has a very well-written article on his substack about the witch hunts that take place throughout our society to incriminate anyone who happens to have white skin. Lebron James is the primary villain in this piece but you could replace him with any one of a huge number of dimwitted hypocrites that try to set themselves up as moral arbiters.
A good read.
I’d say this was one of Carlson’s most thoughtful and effective discussions of how racialist political policies end up in mentally ill people committing violent and senseless acts. I especially liked how he compared the racial hatred in Rwanda between the two black ethnicities, the Hutus and the Tutsis, with how the Democrats are stoking racial hatred in the United States.
The demonization of a whole race, whites, by the practitioners of critical race theory over the last ten years has now begun to bear fruit with black and white individuals with axes to grind acting out some race war fantasy on the streets of our cities. And with the police now sidelined thanks to the George Floyd movement, these mentally ill people have an easy time slipping through the cracks and unleashing mayhem and murder on innocent people just trying to live their lives.
Carlson starts off the show by noting that over the last weekend a hundred and four Americans were shot to death. This puts in perspective the 10 murders committed by the Buffalo shooter. The ten murders were horrifying but hardly exceptional or even dominant on a national level. It was just another example of the breakdown of law and order in Joe Biden’s America. People can try to demagogue using racial politics to take advantage of this tragedy but until the Democrats drop identity politics this will be the future of our country going forward.
The ZMan had his usual Friday morning podcast. It was a review of the Left’s use of terms like racist and white supremacy and how their meaning differs from what the rest of the world means by those terms. It was as usual very interesting.
What stuck in my mind was the reminder that when dealing with the Left, the term that we can use that has enormous power is declaring their policies as anti-white hate. The ZMan’s contention, and I think it’s a valid one, is that the Left’s narrative depends on people thinking that they speak from a moral high ground. But if you can indict what they’re doing as a hateful and therefore immoral activity you rob them of this legitimacy.
And he’s right. Specifying something as anti-white hate frightens and confuses leftists. ZMan should be congratulated for popularizing this insight. Equity, diversity, inclusion really just an anti-white ploy. CRT is anti-white propaganda. It’s a powerful tool. Think about it.
I have known people from around the world. In my life I have met refugees from China, Russia, Vietnam, Lebanon, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Ukraine and Turkey. And many of them were interesting, intelligent and friendly human beings. But by leaps and bounds my favorite people are Americans. Not because they are so much smarter or nicer but because I am an American. We are members of the same club. We wear the same club pin. We know the secret handshake. We pay dues to the same organization and we grew up together.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t Americans who stink. Even ones who aren’t traitors, ones who truly belong to our side of the fence can be stupid or evil or both. Every family has its black sheep. But family is still family. The only ones I disown are the ones who’ve disowned me. The white guilt, white privilege, equity/diversity/inclusion, unconscious bias crowd. Those I disown. They are not Americans. They are former Americans who have betrayed their country to a global conspiracy against America.
But real Americans are some of the nicest, kindest, most competent people on the face of the Earth. Houston, Texas. Sacramento, California. Grand Rapids, Michigan. Lawrence, Kansas. Tomahawk, Wisconsin. Toledo, Ohio. Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Dalton, Georgia. Springfield, Missouri. I’ve been to all these places for work. I was there to get some project completed, either designing process equipment with a manufacturer or on site at a customer’s plant troubleshooting a problem. And in every one of these places, I met people who surprised me by their friendliness.
So what’s my point? Just this. If I could go to all of these random places in this enormous country and meet good people, people who would see past my strange northeastern accent and brusque manner, and even when in an adversarial position impress me with their decency and good nature, then I find it extremely hard to believe that this is an evil place where people deserve to be punished by their own government and deprived of their rights because they were born white.
In fact, I refuse to believe it. These are my people. They believe what I believe. They love what I love. Their people came here to flourish as free men. They don’t have to leave. They don’t have to disappear. We will have re-organize. We will need to work around the cancer that is afflicting us. Hopefully someday we’ll be able to surgically remove it. But until then we’ll need to redirect resources to organizations and efforts that help us. And until some true organization begins to happen, we’ll have to do this resource management at the micro level. We have to finance our families and our communities to support the people and activities that represent us.
And before you support anyone or anything test it to see if it supports the people and organizations that hate us. See what stands behind it. If a charity flies the rainbow flag or displays the BLM symbol, walk away. Anyone who embraces any anti-white talking points, reject. Any activity that disparages the American flag or substitutes some other flag or anthem, abandon. Now that the enemies of America have become so open in their hatred it’s much easier to instruct your children and grandchildren in who their enemies are. We need to raise awareness of who are our enemies and who are our friends.
We are a great and good people. We deserve to flourish and we will. All we have to do is get re-organized.
Whiteness, White Privilege, Unconscious Bias, Systemic Racism, Critical Race Theory. What they say it all means is that just by being myself I am doing wrong. What they want me to do is spend all my time somehow atoning for being me. I need to give up my culture, heritage and history and pretend that I believe the lies about those things they say and grovel and pay reparations forever for being me. Sounds wonderful.
I am aware that there are white people who will do this. Maybe there are a lot of them. But at the same time there are a lot who won’t. And if the powers that be and the cultural trend setters declare this to be the cultural norm of our society then these people who won’t submit will become a separate culture. We will celebrate different holidays; worship develop different customs and eventually use a different language. And already we see this happening. What hasn’t happened yet is the result of this. Some of the results will be separate religions, separate schools and specialty businesses to cater to the needs of this separate identity. The schools and religions will need books and videos and other instructional materials to teach the beliefs that are forbidden in the outside culture. In the case of the present Woke Culture it means that foods will be differentiated too. Our people will eat meat while the Woke will be eating bugs or at best tofu. Even our cars and homes will be different. We’ll be driving gasoline powered vehicles and they will be charging up their battery cars and mostly driving bicycles. We will be living in homes heated by gas or oil and they will be living in underground dugouts buried under a sod roof full of cockroaches and warming themselves by a solar and wind powered space heater.
In fact, we will need parallel companies to provide us with much of what we need. We’ll even need our own companies to employ us. After all we’ll be untouchables. No self-respecting woke corporation will employ a white man who doesn’t submit to a weekly struggle session where he confesses some new atrocity to his BIPOC coworkers.
All this seems excessive. After all, why not just work for Google and buy your crap from Amazon? Many will, maybe most. But there will be a good-sized minority who just won’t do it. And for them being a shunned minority may just be the best option available. There are advantages to being separate. Once you unplug from the dominant culture you can avoid the irritants that exist in the outside. Once your children attend their own schools and churches you will be automatically selecting for the kind of friends and eventually mates they will have. And outside communities tend to work together closely on political and community initiatives that impact them.
But most of all you will be avoiding the impact of the toxic narrative that woke culture aims at your children. Telling young people that their parents and ancestors are evil is about the worst thing you can do to someone’s community. And we’ve been putting up with this to a higher and higher degree for the last seventy-five years. It is time to admit that trying to reform the whole culture is an impossibility. The Elites have the reins of power and all the means of education and communication at their disposal against us. All that’s left to us are our families and our minds. We need to consciously define ourselves as separate and embrace our old culture and break away from the woke culture in every way we can. And we’ll be all the better because of it.
Identity politics has enveloped our modern political world. The Dissident Right says that the winning strategy for Normal White Men is to play the same game and build a separate identity and negotiate relationships with the other identity groups. The alternative to this is the civic nationalist idea of a civic identity that embraces everyone who identifies with the traditional American culture and constitutional governance.
The question is which one reflects reality. And what that hinges on is whether there are more people who believe in Old America or more people who don’t. If the answer is more people believe then we can try to put Humpty Dumpty back together again. But if Old America doesn’t have enough support to win back the country, then identity politics is the only way to go.
I have to confess I don’t know the answer to this. And part of the problem is that the Democrats and their political machine stopped worrying about obeying the law. So, it becomes difficult to know if we are the majority or the minority. If they can steal an election then it may be too late to fix the system at all.
But for now, my world view is that what Old America stood for is a good thing that is worth upholding. The civic national concept is a framework that provides a way for human beings to live together in harmony. The live and let live aspect of free association and freedom of speech is an attractive and valuable concept. If it is shown that these things are irremediably lost then America without them becomes far less attractive a proposition. At that point I believe it would be necessary to reevaluate all the options.
America’s defining virtue was always freedom. And freedom is an absolute. Sure, there were plenty of cheats that occurred against the Bill of Rights. At different times and in different places crimes against freedom of speech or the right to bear arms or the other fundamental rights were perpetrated. But for the most part our rights were respected. We were treated as free men.
If we aren’t free men then our citizenship becomes a lot less valuable than we thought it was. If it turns out that freedom has been removed from the bargain then what we have left must be measured against all the locations on the globe to decide which one provides the highest quality of life. In some places economic opportunity might be higher. In others crime levels might be lower. In others traditional lifestyles may be more attractive than living in a woke cesspool of dysfunction and delusion. Maybe some of the red states may provide a successor state to Old America. That would be a very attractive option if it becomes impossible to save the republic. That option would include all the virtues of the old system without having to constantly battle the Left for the right to live a normal life in your own country.
So, for now I’ll cling to the hope that we will be able to resuscitate Old America and cleanse it of the lunacy that the Left is inflicting upon us. I don’t assume that the blue states can be saved. Places like California and New York are hopeless. The best thing that can happen there is for systemic collapse to provide an object lesson on what happens when you legislate insanity.
But if my fellow Americans embrace anti-white identity politics then I will be shown wrong and I will have to admit my error and swim across to the Dissident Right.
The geniuses in Washington have made “Juneteenth” a federal holiday. First of all, Juneteenth? That’s a word? Couldn’t that also stand for June 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, or 18th? Can I call July 11th Juleventh? And how would I know it doesn’t mean July 7th? And do we all get to pick a federal holiday now?
Frank Costanza made a strong case for Festivus (December 23). What with the feats of strength and airing of grievances it seems like a natural for the age we live in. And personally, I favor Colour Blindness Awareness Day (September 6) but could see people having their own favorites.
But Juneteenth? Isn’t that what Martin Luther King’s Birthday is for? How will the Puerto Ricans feel about this? And where will this leave the Tierra del Fuegians and the Patagonians? And what about the Eskimos?
Well, anyway here is my list of holidays from which to replace Juneteenth (special consideration to names in bold type):
February 27 National Pancake Day (USA)
February (first Saturday) Ice Cream for Breakfast Day
March 1 National Pig Day (USA)
March 10 or Friday of first full week Middle Name Pride Day
March 20 World Sparrow Day
March (First Saturday) National Corndog Day
April 1 Edible Book Festival
April 11 International Louie Louie Day
1st Saturday in May World Naked Gardening Day
May 4 Star Wars Day
May 25 Towel Day
May 26 National Paper Airplane Day
June (First Friday) National Donut Day
June 2 International Whores’ Day
June 24 Take Your Dog to Work Day
July 2 World UFO Day
July 26 Esperanto Day
September 6 Colour Blindness Awareness Day (my personal favorite)
September 19 International Talk Like a Pirate Day
September 22 Hobbit Day
September 28 Ask a Stupid Question Day
October 4 Cinnamon roll day
October 11 World Obesity Day
October 16 National Boss Day (Boss’s Day)
October 18 World Vasectomy Day
October 21 International Day of the Nacho
November 19 World Toilet Day
November (First Friday in November) Love Your Lawyer Day
