The unimaginable becomes prosaic

I can remember, and it wasn't so long ago, when getting into the US represented a significant challenge. First you had to apply for a visa (which contained a raft of tricky questions along the lines of 'are you a terrorist or do you intend to commit acts of terrorism while in the US?') and if memory serves me correctly you even had to do an interview with some steely-eyed bureaucrat. My niece overstayed her visa and was summarily deported, never to return. A friend of my wife who lived in America, was married to an American and whose kids were born there was, together with her kids, refused permission to board the plane at Shannon due to some technical glitch in their documentation.

That was little more than twenty years ago. Now the detritus from every hell-hole on the globe can almost freely cross the southern 'border' and once across usually qualify for some form of residency. Sure, people are still stopped and others get deported, but literally millions have, over the last few decades, crossed illegally and now roost in the US. This says nothing of the legal immigrants (mainly from Asia) who have been flooding in by the millions over the same period. Despite the campaign promises Trump has utterly failed to make a difference. The staggering scale of the problem was graphically illustrated at the recent Democratic debate when close to a majority of the candidates, hands raised in the air, stood in favour of free medical care for people illegally residing in the country. Just think about that. Free medical care for people illegally residing in the country, when a few decades back they'd have immediately been punted back over the border - assuming they had somehow managed to get across in the first place.

Some time ago I wrote 'Am I alone in thinking that this is another sign of a general quickening? Not just gun control but all elements of the anti-White project seem to have suddenly gone into overdrive. Third World immigration, the spread of "hate" (read anti-White) legislation, the blocking of pro-White websites, White displacement in the workplace, antifa aggression and provocations, depravity and degeneration in the public sphere, the rewriting of history. It's like the way the flow of a river speeds up as it approaches a waterfall. It's a good analogy because it seems we are headed towards some precipitous event, the nature and outcome of which, to me at least, are unknown.'

They still are.

And the Maine problem is.....

From USA Today "From Alabama to Wyoming: Here is the best and worst thing about every state"

This is how they rate Maine:

Best: Lowest violent crime rate

Maine ranks as the safest state in the country, as there were just 124 violent crimes reported for every 100,000 residents -- less than a third of the national rate.

Worst: Least diverse

According to the latest Census data, 94.4 percent of Maine's population is white, beating out nearby Vermont and New Hampshire as the least diverse states.

But wait, according to the New York Slimes help could be on the way.

'PORTLAND, Me. — … This month, 250 migrants from Africa arrived in this northeastern city of roughly 67,000 residents in the span of just a week, overflowing the overflow space and forcing Portland to hastily convert a basketball arena into an emergency shelter. Urgent calls went out for interpreters who could speak French, Portuguese and Lingala, a language spoken in the Democratic Republic of Congo. City Council meetings were given over to grappling with how Portland would pay for all of this — and the possibility that still more migrants might be coming. the sheer numbers — and the suddenness of the latest arrivals — have opened up a debate about how much Portland should be doing to help immigrants and whether it should entice more of them to come. "
If we have discovered the magic wand that will bring young families to Portland to help us build the next generation, why would we want to stop that, especially when it costs us so little money?”  Portland’s mayor Ethan Strimling said.'

Maybe Vincent Mbala from the Congo, who came to Maine with his wife and three children, can help in identifying this magic wand.

'He said that he learned through internet research that Maine provided financial support for asylum seekers. Maine is unusual in providing general assistance, for up to two years, to immigrants who have valid visas or who have applied for asylum. … Portland also has what local officials believe is the only municipal fund in the country that provides support to asylum seekers before they submit their applications.'

Now with my crystal ball in hand let me provide that rag with an update for 2030.

Best: Most diverse

Maine has become one of America's most diverse states, a beautiful mosaic of different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different dreams, united by their passionate belief in democracy, freedom, and the American Way Of Life.

Worst: Spiralling crime 

The citizens of Maine endure some of the nation's highest rates of murder, violent assault, rape, robbery and inter-communal violence. Sociologists and political scientists are baffled by these developments as less than a decade ago Maine was the safest place in the country.

Folks, these days the jokes just write themselves.

Orwell weeps

The treatment of political and social dissent by the post-Stalin Soviet Block regimes was far less draconian that is commonly imagined. The midnight knock, followed by a bullet to the head or disappearance into the gulag archipelago were replaced by far less draconian but still effective control mechanisms. These included media denunciations, mandatory re-education programmes, loss of job, loss of apartment or incarceration in a mental institution. One thing stayed constant though: The courts remained mere enforcers of the regimes' will while intruding into every facet of people's lives.

In other words pretty much what we have today in the democratic freedom-loving West. And our courts would make Brezhnev or Andropov proud. Consider this new and horrifying development from the Orwellian-named Court Of Protection: A female British judge ordered a pregnant woman who reportedly has developmental disabilities and a mood disorder to have an abortion, even though the woman and her mother allegedly strenuously object. The woman’s mother made clear to doctors and the court that she would assume care of her grandchild. The woman is believed to have the mental capacity of a grade school-age child. She is reportedly Catholic, and her mother is Nigerian.  “I am acutely conscious of the fact that for the State to order a woman to have a termination where it appears that she doesn't want it is an immense intrusion,” said Justice Nathalie Lieven. “I have to operate in [her] best interests, not on society's views of termination”.

Yup, you read that right. Not content with deeming full-term abortions - i.e. infanticide - a Constitutional right in America judges in Britain now decide who can have children.  Has this judge ever heard of the woman's right to choose? Well yes she has. Because the same Judge Lieven, prior to her elevation to the bench, was a leading advocate for 'women's health' (i.e. abortion and contraception). She even sued the Government of Northern Ireland for their restrictive abortion laws. Which we can assume contributed greatly to her early promotion. Writing in The Spectator a few months back a would-be High Court judge claimed that to make a successful application it was not sufficient to just commit to 'diversity and inclusion', applicants had to demonstrate how they had actively supported such objectives in their careers to date. Who are those who decide on such criteria? Probably the kind of people who worked to give this freak responsibility for children and the family in Ireland.

Now I don't want any smart-alecs commenting on the kind of a world we'd have if Africans with, er, 'developmental disabilities' (90% of Africans) were not allowed to reproduce!

Reasons to be cheerful

Obviously there's  no shortage of black pills but today I bring to your attention several reasons to be cheerful. First up is the ongoing swarm of mini quakes in Southern California. Now don't get your hopes up prematurely. Such swarms do not necessarily mean the imminent disappearance of Hollywood and Silicon Valley and the rest of Globohomo land into a watery Pacific grave. Nonetheless scientists claim that those quakes could set off a domino effect which would 'awaken the southern San Andreas from its long slumber'. That fault is capable of producing a quake close to 9 on the Richter Scale. And that would do just fine.

And we're on the subject of Hollywood it gladdens the heart to learn that their "comedies" are tanking. The Hollywood Reporter (which is the latest outlet to discontinue reader comments) laments comedy and romantic comedy ticket sales as a whole have been on a steady slide for the past decade. "Ten years ago, comedy was king at the movie theater, and now comedy is having a terrible time getting traction". Whatever the cause, there's a cascading list of comedies that have disappointed at the box office over the past few years, leading to a new calculus in the film industry: Which movie justifies a theatrical release and which should be relegated straight to streaming.

The HR agonises long and hard about the causes of this disaster without even coming close to discovering the blindingly obvious: The 'comedies' are just not funny.  And they're not funny largely because they're hamstrung by the PC thought police breathing down the writers' necks and the force-fitting of unfunny minorities and women (who make lousy comedians) into the starring roles. And  maybe straight White males, who make up a huge proportion of the market, have gotten fed up with being the butt of every joke and put-down from minority stooges who have gone beyond the subliminal and now openly display their hate and contempt. The targets seem to have taken the hint and are now staying at home in ever-increasing numbers.

And finally to arch-demon Angela Merkel. Did you see her doing the Hippy Hippy Shake as she stood to her country's, sorry, Germany's National Anthem? Enjoy. The official Fake News explanation attributes the attack to dehydration. Silly lie because dehydration does not induce these symptoms.  So what was it? The optimist in me says it's an indication of an advanced neurological disorder that will soon send her to meet her Satanic Master. There are other possibilities of course. It might be an allergic reaction to the German National Anthem. Or the demon within her was trying unsuccessfully to escape. Did she get a sudden vision of Judgement Day, or did someone accidentally sprinkle her with Holy Water? Or, more whimsically, was she bursting for a piss or did she accidentally activate her vibrator? Let's be positive and go with the fatal neurological disorder.

So there you go. Hopefully your spirits have been raised and there's a spring in your step as you face another day.

Finally: The joys of diversity explained

The joys and benefits of diversity are endlessly touted. But I've always been struck by the lack of specificity. What exactly are the benefits? Ask a diversocrat and you'll get a vague response, buzz words and pabula. The nearest thing to specifics is exotic food and the restaurants that serve it. Yes, that's it! Like all the other supposed advantages this one doesn't stack up either as White chefs could go abroad, learn the skills and recipes, and bring them home to a grateful White world. I can't see them taking this on though.

CHIMPANZEE meat is being sold in the UK, with the risk of it sparking “the next big pandemic”, experts have warned. Sold as “bush meat”, the chimp flesh has found its way onto platters at weddings and Christenings, and is also sold as a luxury food at market stalls in the UK. Diseases such as HIV can be transmitted from chimpanzees to humans because we are so genetically similar. Dr Ben Garrod told the Telegraph that a ton of bush meat from West Africa was confiscated on a flight bound for the US in recent weeks. "It's rife, it's in all major cities across Europe and the US. Chimpanzee meat is seen as a luxury food item in (cough, cough) some cultures. From what I know, I can't imagine why people would want to eat chimpanzee, but most bush meat that comes to the UK is seen as a luxury food."

Meanwhile a report from a medical research institution shows sharply increased incidences in Germany of adenoviral conjunctivitis, botulism, chicken pox, cholera, dengue fever, E. coli, haemophilus influenza, Hantavirus, hepatitis, hemorrhagic fever, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, louse-borne relapsing fever, malaria, measles, meningococcal disease, mumps, paratyphoid, rubella, syphilis, toxoplasmosis, tuberculosis, typhus and whooping cough.

Don't know about you but I think it's a small price to pay for the joys of diversity.

The Great Irresponsibility Plot

Have you ever marvelled at the insanities of Health & Safety regulations? Emanating from the EUSSR Commission / Politburo they seem designed to mollycoddle people to the point of catatonia. British soldiers were told they could no longer fire actual mortars during training because even with ear defenders the sound of the explosion breached the 137 decibel limit. Kites have been banned from beaches in case they might fall and injure someone as have sticking plasters from workplaces in case of allergic reactions and children from taking part in sack races.

The days of being accountable for your own stupidity and/or carelessness seem to be gone. Tripped over your feet as you drunkenly stagger out of a pub? Sue for compensation. Whom do you sue? Doesn't really matter, the pub, the local're sure of a handsome cheque to soothe your recovery. A kid in Dublin, seriously injured when jumping onto the roof of a moving train sued the transport company and walked away with nearly half a million Euro. Somehow, in some unfathomable way the transport company was deemed at fault.

We're incubating a timid and indecisive society. Theodore Dalrymple, writing of the bureaucratic gridlock involved in resolving a simple pest control problem at a school suggests that "the aversion to risk even when there isn’t any is a mark of modern society. It is aversion not to risk, but to metarisk, as it were: the risk of a risk. The pest controller wondered what would happen if the school ever had to face a real emergency. The staff were so unused to taking decisions for themselves that they would probably be paralyzed by indecision. The only decision of which they were now capable was the decision not to take a decision. Human agency is a faculty that has to be exercised or it withers, to be replaced by paralysis followed by obedience to protocol". [My emphasis].

Now tell me, how convenient is it for our globohomo masters to have their subjects reduced to cowering, indecisive, risk-averse drones? As convenient as rending them androgynous?

Italy's multicultural miracle town

It was the Town-Where-Multiculturalism-Works, the ultimate Global Village. "This [picture on left] is a daily scene in Riace: two kids from Ethiopia are playing with local kids. They are grown in Italy, they speak a fluent Italian, they speak also English and their homeland language. Riace calls itself a Global Village, whose residents come from more than 20 countries beyond Europe."

"Riace was rundown and very poor. The town’s economy was rescued by the migrants’ arrival: the projects generate jobs, the property rentals support individual families and the turnover in the local shops has grown. About 60 original inhabitants are employed on the projects. External money has been pouring into this small economy: the benefit payments represent the largest investment ever made in it. And, to top it all, mayor Lucano is now world famous. His brave stand and his insistence on telling us about it has meant that, among other things, he made the list of the 50 most important politicians in the world, drawn up by the business magazine Fortune. Celebrities from all over the place have visited Riace."

"Some months ago, the association offered a beginners’ course in Italian but now the staff are focused on helping with practical things such as medical appointments, problems with finding somewhere to live, benefit payments and legal aid applications. Dotted around the old town, there are several other similar workshops, all of them financed through project funding. The workshops are just about the only business activities I come across, with a few others such as a partly shut-down shop selling souvenirs and the odd, corner store and other service providers. The finance for the project-funded activities comes from several sources: the EU, the region of Calabria and left-of-centre charities such as Associazione Ricreativa Culturale Italiana. "

But now....

"The shops and workshops previously occupied by migrants are now shuttered. The village's historic streets are largely deserted, with funereal music occasionally punctuating the silence. Colourful, multi-ethnic murals can still be seen on walls, testimony to the experiment that took place here and the hopes for migrant integration it spawned in Italy and beyond, before it failed amid alienated locals and allegations of fraud."

Having put the YahooSpeak to one side I sought to establish what actually happened. And it wasn't easy as the coverage supplied by the search engines was wall-to-wall acclamation with the occasional vague references to dark forces of the right working to undermine this multi-ethnic utopia. But I was still able to establish how the Riace experiment actually played out. 

Corrupt local politician sees an opportunity to get his paws on oodles of cash from the EU and other globalists desperate to create a multicultural success story. And the money duly poured in. This was in part used to finance 'enterprises' operated by the migrants. Naturally enough the town benefited financially. And the Mayor got his personal share by way of sweetheart deals on municipal contracts, human trafficking and, it is rumoured, drug dealing. Then for a variety of reasons the flow of funds declined and with it the so-called profits of the so-called enterprises. This was bad enough but as the social problems grew in direct proportion to the number of migrants the locals rebelled. Muslims had begun imposing their own religious norms while Africans were behaving like Africans, stealing, littering and sexually assaulting local girls. Once the Mayor's chicanery was exposed the game was up. He's now out on bail and in the recent elections he didn't get enough votes to even win a seat on the local Council as the 'far right' swept the boards.

I've always said that multiculturalism works until it stops working. By which I mean that such societies are inherently unstable, just waiting for a spark to ignite a conflagration. Riace got off lightly, its failure resolved peacefully. As time goes on such peaceful resolutions will be the exception rather than the rule.

Denmark continues to amaze

The city of Malmo looks like being the template for Sweden's future, and possibly that of every White country. Nearly 50% of the population is non-Swedish and now murder, rape, kidnapping and ethnic crime gangs are the norm. There are now more murders in a month in Malmo than there were annually in the whole country in the sixties. An Amren essay refers to the
way in which "the government, both national and local, has lost control of the city’s spiralling crime and rioting immigrant population..... institutions are struggling to cope with the multicultural reality which turns everything upside down. Malmö shows us all how Sweden is under attack; institution after institution, from the police down to the post office, are decreasing their activity or collapsing. Whilst the city is on the path to destruction, the experiment continues with an establishment that capitulates to the issues raised by Malmö, and a media which does everything to convince the population that Malmö is good and the issues are to be blamed upon Swedish society."

The poison has spread to the rest of the country. But strangely enough a country just twenty miles from Malmo has taken a different course. A diametrically opposite course in fact. Although last week's election there suggests a left-wing victory in reality the 'left wing' supports policies that would have it dubbed as neo-Nazi anywhere else. The new government is set to actually strengthen existing restrictions on integration and immigration including making the country’s  “ghetto” policy even harsher.  Did you know that Denmark has  officially designated ghettos whose inmates are subject to different rules from the rest of the country? Yes it has. (That's one of them in the pic below). In recent months the government has pushed through policies that demand far more extreme intervention in their inmates' lives. Laws passed in March require children to spend a minimum of 25 hours a week in state-approved Danish language childcare from the age of one. Proposed new laws, expected to come before parliament in the autumn, could include extra jail time for ghetto residents when they are convicted of a crime, or stricter sentences for crimes committed inside the ghetto areas.

The 'extreme right' Danish People's Party is proposing that children who live in these ghettos should be subjected to evening curfews, enforced by wearing ankle bracelets. Their leader says he would not consider any practising Muslim woman who chose to wear a headscarf Danish, regardless of her home, language or commitment to Danish values.The government wants to send up to 100 people who have completed jail sentences but cannot be deported because they are at risk of torture or execution in their home countries to the island of Lindholm which, appropriately, is used as a laboratory and crematorium by scientists researching swine flu, rabies and other contagious diseases. 

Even the liberal left Social Democrats (who made big gains by stealing the DPP's clothes) have called for a cap on “non-western immigrants”, for asylum seekers to be expelled to a reception centre in North Africa, and for all immigrants to be forced to work 37 hours a week in exchange for benefits. The SD voted in favour of a law allowing jewellery to be stripped from refugees, and a burqa and niqab ban, and abstained rather than voted against a law on mandatory handshakes irrespective of religious sentiment at citizenship ceremonies. In February they backed a “paradigm shift” – a plan to make repatriation, rather than integration, the goal of asylum policy.

Why has Denmark taken such a drastically different approach to their across-the-bridge Swedish neighbours? Some say it's because they're so close to Malmo and see first hand the joys of diversity. But the rest of Sweden can see that too. Undoubtedly the 2005 cartoon crisis was a factor. “For many Danes  it was a new and shocking experience, and one that shaped political discourse,” says journalist, historian and general pain in the bollocks Adam Holtun. “It hardened it, but it also has meant that freedom of expression has an elevated status in Danish politics compared to various other countries.” You almost expect him to burst into tears. But many if not most other enriched European countries have experienced far worse and yet have totally cucked out on immigration control. And how do the Danes escape the clutches of the ghastly European Court For Human Rights?

Whatever the question, the Danes seem to have found the answer.

A new Peasants' Revolt

The venerable Uncle Nasty, in a comment to the previous post, discussed England's 14th century Peasant Revolt. Interesting because over the last couple of years I have begun to notice a distinct cooling of ardour from our (cough) 'elite' opinion formers on this topic. The revolt had been the touchstone of leftists for well over a century, the ultimate Good War. And you can see why, powerless serfs exploited by the land-owning class, rise up and get brutally put down by the forces of capital, church and royalty. This acclamation reached its apogee in the 1980's when Thatcher tried to impose a poll tax because the very same tax had sparked the peasants into their eponymous revolt way back then. Right Thinkers reverently bowed their heads whenever the subject was mentioned.

However, there has been a subtle rebranding since then reflecting a marked decline in leftist regard for the peasants. It took me some time to realise this and to seek confirmation I resorted to those classic New Speak fountainheads the New Statesman and the Guardian. And there it was. I learned from the latter that the “peasants’ revolt” is now called the “great revolt” by modern historians, to reflect what we now know to be the wider social background of those involved and that 'new scholarship has demolished many of its [the Revolt] foundations'. The same article warns that conventional interpretations of it are 'problematic'. Let me explain 'problematic' as currently deployed by the nation-wreckers. It's an interim state along the spectrum between acceptance and condemnation. Think of it in terms of a doomed Stalin apparatchik. The first sign of his impending fate is demotion to a lower level job. In due course he gets fired, to be followed soon after by accusations of treason, eventually ending in the Lubyanka death chamber with a bullet to the back of the head. Losing his job would be problematic.

This from  the New Statesman is the equivalent of airbrushing Yeshov from his photos with Stalin. "Take, for example, the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381. It was, after all, a tax revolt - something we now associate more with the right than the left - originating in some of England’s most prosperous counties: Essex, Kent and Norfolk. Many of the rebels were not peasants: according to contemporary accounts, the first leader of the protests was a local landowner, Thomas Baker, while another leading agitator, Geoffrey Litster, held the title of bailiff and was a literate local official. When the protesters arrived in London, they soon became absorbed in what Vallance calls “a carnivalesque orgy of violence and destruction”, particularly targeted at foreigners and immigrants."

Aha!!  Now it becomes clearer. You see for today's rootless, multi-racial, atheistic cosmopolitan 'elite' (again, I use that word advisedly) the idea of peasants revolting is, well, revolting. It sends a quiver down their puny spines, conjuring up all sorts of unsettling imagery. Because they now occupy the place of the 14th century aristocracy, feudal landowners and  tax collectors. They're dimly aware, especially post Brexit and Trump, that a seething mass of latter-day peasants, as now represented by the White working and middle classes, flexes its muscles and prepares to retake their country.

Here's to a 21st century peasants' revolt. And hope that this time don't be duped and betrayed by TPTB.
