Lesley Gore – Sunshine Lollipops And Rainbows Ski Party

When whites felt safe and confident, they looked like this. Compared to today, life for whites in 1960s America was sunshine, lollipops and rainbows.

If they shot this scene today, they’d have interracial couples and twerking.

Deconstructing A Ridiculous George Steiner Interview

From a new book, excerpted at Forward.com:

Editor’s note: George Steiner is generally regarded as one of the most significant Jewish thinkers of the 20th century. He has taught at Oxford University, Cambridge, Harvard and Yale, among others, and his books include the classic of criticism, “Tolstoy Or Dostoevsky,” “The Death Of Tragedy” and “In Bluebeard’s Castle: Some Notes Towards The Redefinition Of Culture.” “A Long Saturday,” a book of conversations Steiner had with the French journalist Laure Adler, is being published this month by the University Of Chicago Press. Writing for The Washington Post in 1984, Robert Alter declared, “No one now writing on literature can match him as polymath and polyglot, and few can equal the verve and eloquence of his writing.”

GS: “For several thousand years, approximately from the time of the fall of the First Temple in Jerusalem, Jews did not have the wherewithal to mistreat, or torture, or expropriate anyone or anything in the world.

That would be news to groups with conflicting interests from Jews. For instance, in a free country, Jews naturally rise to prominence and dominate certain professions such as law, media, medicine, accounting, finance, etc. By excluding Jews for centuries, many European countries such as Spain developed their own indigenous middle class rather than outsource those positions to Jews.

The idea that could never mistreat anyone before the state of Israel would be news, for example, to people who’ve been rooked in a business deal by a Jew.

All groups are competing with other groups for scarce resources and in many of these competitions, one group wins and other groups lose.

For me, it was the single greatest aristocracy that ever existed. When I’m introduced to an English duke, I say to myself, “The highest nobility is to have belonged to a people that has never humiliated another people.” Or tortured another.

One is entitled to one’s opinions, i.e. that Jews are the greatest aristocracy that ever existed, but the idea that Jews have never humiliated or tortured another people prior to the state of Israel is ridiculous. For example, many of the biggest mass murderers of the 20th Century were Stalin’s Willing Jewish Executioners. It was precisely because they were Jews that they felt little sympathy for the kulaks and other groups they liquidated (because of bad history between Jews and these peoples).

GS: “I’m a confirmed ethical snob, I’m completely arrogant ethically.”

On what metric would Steiner claim that Jews are head and shoulders over other groups in ethics? Jews, like almost all groups, practice a dual morality that goes back to Torah — there’s one morality for how you treat your in-group and there’s another morality for how you treat outsiders. This approach is not likely to ethically excel WASPs who practice a universal morality — one standard for how you treat everyone. Which group, for example, has a better reputation for honesty in business? WASPs or Jews? For much of the world, the word “Jew” is synonymous with dishonesty in business and this perception is not entirely removed from reality (not that they are less honest in business than other Middle Eastern and Mediterranean peoples).

Most people will naturally think the best of their own group and easily slip into negative views of out-groups. Jews are no exception to this social identity theory.

GS: “I can only explain what I perceive as the Jew’s mission: to be the guest of humanity.”

Wanting to be a permanent guest is a childish want. Adults take responsibility and create a home for themselves.

No group has a right to exist. Every group must work to protect its group interests if it wants to keep on existing.

GS: “What must a guest do? He must live among people, wherever they may be. And a good guest, a worthy guest, leaves the place where he has been staying a bit cleaner, a bit more beautiful, a bit more interesting than he found it.”

Those are very nice thoughts but I doubt Jews collectively or any group can be said to live up to this charge. It is not pleasant to be a minority.

How Trump Adviser Stephen Miller Divided a Santa Monica Synagogue

Hollywood Reporter:

Members of the progressive temple, where Miller learned Hebrew, and L.A.’s Jewish community struggle to come to grips with a native son who forcefully champions the Muslim ban and the wall on the Mexican border. Says one Rabbi, “Miller is not the only Jew who is supportive of these policies, but he’s in a position of great influence.”
The Miller family belonged to the Santa Monica Synagogue only for two or three years — enough time for their eldest son, Stephen, to graduate Hebrew school in 2001. Miller’s young face, with a grin, peeks out from the corner of that year’s confirmation class photo, which hangs on a back wall of the temple, near a toilet and rec room. “We did our best here to teach Stephen the ethical standards of Judaism,” says Jeff Marx, the Reform synagogue’s longtime rabbi, who tutored Miller and appears with him in the class portrait.

Sixteen years later, Miller’s picture is all over the place, but the progressive Jewish community that helped raise him is struggling to fathom how a native son found an intellectual home with President Donald Trump and his allies. “He certainly grew up here having a knowledge base” of Judaism, says Marx, a bearded, kindly man who shrugs and lifts his hands in a gesture of helplessness, unwilling to say more.

As a senior White House adviser, Miller, 31, is one of Trump’s policy wonks and a regular surrogate for the leader of the free world on talk shows. He’s also a key architect of some of the administration’s most exclusionary initiatives, including the yet-to-be-implemented Muslim ban and the proposed border wall with Mexico. For a Jewish community already wary about anti-Semitic attacks and an uptick in hate speech, Miller’s positions have struck a nerve. Roughly two-thirds of Jews vote reliably Democratic, according to polls. And while millions of Jews went for Trump, Miller’s push to target specific ethnic or religious minorities has Jews in both parties nervous…

Although recent media reports have suggested that Miller’s parents were liberals typical of the progressive enclave of Santa Monica, members of the Jewish community insist otherwise. Steven Windmueller, a professor of Jewish Communal Service at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion who has known the Millers for many years (“a lovely couple”), says their political leanings align closely with their son’s. “They have been and are conservative Republicans,” he says. One person acquainted with the Millers says they departed the Santa Monica Synagogue when it became clear they “weren’t a good fit” with its reform-minded congregation.

Commentary: Why Was the Israeli Teen Threatening American Jewish Centers?

Comments at Steve Sailer:

* His name, michael kaydar, is known by all the media, yet the nyt and other main stream showing respect to hate criminal by not giving name.

* Times of Israel reported:

… he delivered the threats over a period of two years. He is believed to have been behind at least two threats to Delta Airlines, resulting in the grounding of planes already in the air.

Israeli police only managed to zero in on the suspect after US President Donald Trump sent a team of 12 FBI agents to Israel in recent weeks, Haaretz reported.

Although the investigation has been ongoing for the past two years, the breakthrough that led to the Thursday arrests of the teen and his father was only reached after FBI investigators arrived in Israel several weeks ago, the daily said, citing police sources.

Trump’s intervention is significant, as he had been heavily criticized for not doing enough to end the threats to Jewish centers and for not emphatically condemning anti-Semitsm.

The report did not specify what the FBI agents managed to do that their local counterparts could not. ….

He reportedly grew careless and failed on at least one occasion to route his internet connection through a proxy, leaving behind a real IP address traced back to Israel.

* Police sources told Haaretz that the teen’s main goal appears to have been obtaining media coverage. He had been making bomb threats for at least two years, against a wide variety of targets in several different countries, and after every such threat, he would monitor the media. If the threat didn’t provoke much response, he would lose interest in that target and try again somewhere else. …

For most of the last two years–during which he threatened targets like shopping malls and airlines, as well as Jewish institutions in countries like Australia, New Zealand, and America–his threats produced little media coverage, so he didn’t repeat them. But after Trump’s election, he suddenly hit pay dirt. Threats against U.S. Jewish institutions fit right into the American Jewish community’s loudly proclaimed narrative that the election had empowered right-wing anti-Semites, epitomized by Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt’s ludicrous assertion that U.S. anti-Semitism was now at a level unseen since 1930s Germany. Moreover, such threats fit right into the broader left-wing narrative that Trump’s election had empowered white supremacists, racists and other right-wing hate groups.

* It is to the point where I reflexively doubt every single one of these reports, and wait for the inevitable follow up in alternative media about it being a hoax. The media keeps getting played by young obviously attention-seeking minority women who claim that some badwhite Chad in a Trump hat yanked off their headscarf and wrote mean things on their restaurant receipt. They report these things without a hint of skepticism no matter how outlandish the claim.

* Browse anonymously, use a VPN (private network) to do your web surfing through.
The trade off between privacy and convenience is always going to be with us. It takes a lot more work to retain and control your own information; the workload is not going to diminish.
Why should the people you hire to make your life easier and more convenient not be allowed to make money on that which you have so freely and willingly given away? As a “deplorable” you have the power in your keyboard and browser to make it much more difficult for your ISP to track where you go and what you read. Exert yourself or do not exert yourself to take control of what is yours. Whining about it while still enjoying the convenience is more an SJW way of thinking not really a Deplorable stand.

* Steve, bruh, what’s up with only around 20 comments? Every blog post has 3x that amount. You’re censoring again. Because Jews. We could never, ever hurt their pwecious wittle feewings pointing out things like Jewish nepotism or Jewish privilege. Even though the Jewish community on average spends its collective time slandering the goyim much worse than that. And you, great observer, damn well know it is true. You have twice the intellectual capacity that Kevin MacDonald has, so I know you know.

MORE COMMENTS:

* I don’t care about the black hats. They may smuggle some diamonds or cheat welfare, but so what? No, my problem is organized and elite Jewry. That’s the part of Jewry where the Culture of Critique, mass media indoctrination, race-replacement and open borders agenda, etc., are coming from.

It’s not difficult to have such overweening concern for one’s own people that one does harm to other groups while pursuing that interest, by way of total disregard for others. E.g., the recent business with the Israeli hate provocateur and Jewish cemeteries. Even here at iSteve you had Jews largely dismissing the harm he did to Whites. Never mind the media, where I expect ignoring the subject altogether will be the norm, with exceptions as rare as hen’s teeth.

I don’t see why it’s such a stretch to attribute importance to the unconscious behavior to ethnic groups. Heck, even the conscious rules and goals are quite different for Jews and Whites. Whites are supposed to constantly police themselves with regard to their behavior toward non-Whites and Jews. Jews do not reciprocate that vis-a-vis Whites. On the contrary, Jews are supposed to constantly police themselves with regard to their behavior toward non-Whites, and each other; the difference between “White Guilt” and “Jewish Guilt” is roughly 180 degrees.

The question then becomes, why aren’t Jews policing themselves? Why, in this age of White navel-gazing with regard to group relations, aren’t Jews reciprocating the sensitivity of Whites? The introspection?

As far as I can tell, this issue is completely off Jews’ radar. All the thinking and writing and talking that they do, and it’s completely off their radar.

Jews and Immigration: Time for Change

Marcus Alethia, the pen name of a Jew in academia, writes:

Our country and its Jewish intelligentsia are currently torn by a debate about immigration. On one side the Trump administration is trying to pass executive orders limiting immigration from particular, though certainly not all, Muslim-majority countries while also deporting people — largely from Mexico or Central America — who are in the US illegally.

On the other side are activist judges shutting down these executive orders and what seems like the entire constellation of journalists, pundits and activists in the country decrying these moves. From looking at the writers of many op-ed pieces or from looking through Jewish publications such as Forward, it is clear that Jews are disproportionately lobbying in favor of immigration and against deportation or immigration restrictions. Jewish organizations ostensibly formed to lobby for Jewish interests are on the side of resettling more Muslim refugees. Some voices on this side go so far as to call for “open borders” as in a recent piece in Salon. Most of the left has long decried the idea of White interests or White rights as being inherently racist in a way that Black rights or Latino interests aren’t. See for instance David Aaronovitch’s recent op-ed “Defending ‘white interests’ can never be right” in the Financial Times.

I think Jews are on the wrong side of this debate, and have been for decades. Countries are not arbitrary designations on a map; and borders are not imaginary lines. Countries are defined by their people, and borders generally demarcate necessary walls between peoples. Good fences make good neighbors, as the saying goes. Globalization and mass immigration result in what amounts to demographic invasion. It is natural for host populations to resist this being forced upon them.

The Jewish support for so-called “immigrant rights” is supposed to be rooted in the Jewish experience of diaspora and constant movement. Being exiled from our home in ancient times, we should feel sympathy with others who need to leave their homes in modern times. Jews have prospered in America because it is a multicultural society with such a rainbow of peoples that no true majority exists, or will soon, if current demographic trends continue.

I think Jews should be looking at this in another way.

My ancestors hid from the Nazis and their Eastern European allies as small children. Shuttled from place to place, sometimes shielded by kind-hearted Christians, our family ultimately survived both Nazi and later Soviet occupation. But communism was not to their liking and they fled, not to the US, but to Palestine, which they then helped make into Israel.

The great story of Jewish diaspora does not end in a borderless world, it ends in Zionism, and Israel. Despite the countless mistakes the Zionists have made and continue to make, the basic reasonableness of their position remains: a people need a homeland. Israel is very far from perfect but at least it is a home that provides a haven for a people. Our great mistake is thinking this situation is unique to Jews — a point the Palestinians vainly try to remind us of.

In Michel Houellebecq’s novel Submission, France elects an Islamic-Left coalition government which supervises a national transition to Islam. The Jews of France, realizing they aren’t safe, leave. Not for the US, but for Israel. As the narrator says goodbye to his Jewish girlfriend, she asks him if he will stay. “There is no Israel for me,” he says.

People deserve their own homelands. When Rep. Steve King sent his famous tweet about “other people’s babies,” that is what he meant. Throughout its history, the US was primarily composed of White Europeans. The average demographic balance in the country was a little less than 90% White. The country’s demographic composition changed as a result of the Jewish-backed 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act. When the act was passed, its backers promised that there would be no overall change in demographic composition. But not only was that untrue, but now large swaths of the left and open-borders advocates argue that to care about this change much less take any action whatsoever try to stop or reverse it is racist.

Imagine if Israel admitted enormous numbers of non-Jewish immigrants, say Muslim Kurds, and made them citizens. I greatly admire the Kurds, and I’m sure Israeli society wouldn’t suffer from a few new Kurdish citizens. But imagine that their numbers were so many that Kurds, along with Palestinian Arabs, were projected to outnumber the Jews in 50 years. The Jews would once again be a minority. Jewish leftist, liberals, and even neocons pretend that this is different. How exactly so?

What is the moral imperative for European Whites to become the minority in their homelands? Africa’s population is projected to triple in the next century. How many African migrants must Europe take in? How many refugees from Muslim countries? Must Houellebecq’s vision become a reality?

Japan’s population is over 99% ethnic Japanese. This is in fact the norm in much of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Why should Japan’s ethnic homogeneity be unthreatened but France’s population altered completely? One can argue this is rooted in colonialism, but Japan also participated in an aggressive imperialism throughout East and Southeast Asia, and yet Japanese immigration laws remain strict, largely without leftist or Jewish complaint.

Jewish organizations and activists use the Holocaust as a reminder of the immorality of not taking in people under specific threat. In these specifics they are right — I think it was morally wrong to turn the St. Louis back and not arrange for later temporary safe haven for the 20,000 Jewish child refugees. Similarly, few people think that genuine war refugees fleeing for their lives from ISIS should just be treated with a shrug and left to die. But the lesson drawn is also wrong. After World War II, the Jews of Europe poured mainly into Israel. For Jews, the lesson of the Holocaust was that Jews needed a homeland, not that any particular country should take them in. Now having a homeland, Jews have no business denying other nations their own, and a people’s desire to control their demographic destiny is their fundamental and moral right. There are other ways of helping war refugees without making them a permanent presence in your nation, such as peacefully settling them in their own culture regions.

The US is not in fact a propositional nation and Jewish-American poet Emma Lazarus’ poem was not actually about immigration. As American Jews, we are essentially guests in the US, a historically White Christian nation where a Jewish minority has thrived, but has in many ways acted against the interest of our hosts. As Kevin MacDonald points out in his trilogy on Jews and Jewish ethnic activism, partially because of our fear of persecution and being noticed as an ethnic minority outgroup, Jews have promoted mass immigration and multiculturalism to devastating effect. We cannot atone for the immense historical mistake influential Jewish thinkers and activists made in doing this. But ordinary Jews can help do our part to undo these errors by at least supporting the rights of the majority to control their homeland and demographic destiny. This can be done peacefully, by removing those here illegally, helping resettle refugees back in their home countries, and making immigration laws more restrictive. In the US, reasonable organizations like VDARE have pointed towards this for decades. In Europe the situation is in many ways more desperate and here too Jews should understand and support the movements to project strong European majorities in all countries.

It is not racist for European people to want to be majorities in their own countries, any more than it is for Asians, Africans, Arabs, or Jews. It is not Hungarian supremacy that makes Hungary close its borders and try to maintain its cultural uniqueness. It is not Jewish supremacy that makes Israelis think a Jewish majority in Israel in the midst of an overwhelmingly Arab Middle East is necessary and reasonable. And it is not white supremacy that makes white Americans wish to preserve a basic, white majority, which implies no ill-treatment or legal second-class status for Americans of color.

All Jews know open borders would be a disaster for Israel. It is equally a disaster for everybody else.

COMMENTS:

* The reason why Jewish elites are pushing for unlimited third world immigration is because they believe that once the western societies become intolerant towards immigration, the next on the list to experience intolerance would be the Jews – based on historical experiences. Their cosmopolitanism is far more pragmatic than it appears at first glance.

The Jewish elites want to ensure steady stream of third world immigrants as a proof that Western societies remain tolerant and that the Jews shouldn’t worry that they might be a future target of possible holocausts or similar undesired events. The third world immigrants are canaries in the mine for the Jews, and if for some reason they start dropping dead in the rich mine that the West represents, then it’s a signal for the Jewish miners that is time for them to stop (under)mining via overexploitation the rich mine of the West and to start immediate evacuation.

* >Countries are not arbitrary designations on a map; and borders are not imaginary lines.

This is true, but not for the reasons you cite; it has nothing to do with demographics.

Countries are not containers of ethnic identities; countries are autonomous (sovereign) self-governing communities, with their own rules, their own economies, and often with their own philosophies.

These sovereign communities have a perfect right to regulate immigration; while of course individual members and organization/institutions inside these communities have a perfect right to advocate their favorite immigration policies, including the ‘open borders’. None of this has anything to do with your (or anyone else’s) ethnic self-identification.

* http://forward.com/opinion/352854/donald-trumps-plan-for-immigrants-should-scare-the-hell-out-of-jews/ (and they should pack up and run to Israel)

The agenda is clear to me

Israel has a known demographic problem, on the one hand it has almost 20% of Arab population out breeding ethnic Jews:

https://www.jewishpolicycenter.org/2008/02/29/the-threat-from-israels-arab-population/

And on the other a number of young Israelis (big enough for articles on the subject being written in the NYT and Haaretz) are leaving Israel for places like Amsterdam and Berlin

http://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premium-1.622367

https://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/17/world/middleeast/in-exodus-from-israel-to-berlin-young-nations-fissures-show.html?_r=0

Now a long standing goal and strategy of Zionism has been and is ingather exiles from the Diaspora to Eretz Yisrael

http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/zionisms-ultimate-goal/

There are around 2.5 million Jews living in Europe. What a better way there is to achieve said goal than by flooding Europe with Muslim “anti-semites” i.e. increase anti-semitism in Europe while getting far right governments in the European countries such an invasion will surely promote? Swedish and French Jews are already emigrating and Bibi is shamelessly asking them to come back to Israel

Immediately following the killing of a Jewish security guard at a bar mitzvah celebration in Copenhagen, prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel called on all European Jews to mass-emigrate, explaining “Israel is your home”.

http://europe.newsweek.com/jews-denmark-and-sweden-assert-right-stay-put-307347?rm=eu

* High Muslim population in Europe and the US and rubbing European and American noses in no-go areas – guettos, Sharia, honor killings, FGM, terrorism and Rotherham and Cologne style incidents that Muslim “enrichment” comes with will no doubt “help” Europeans and Americans to understand the Muslim problem Israel has with Palestinians, and therefore Americans and Europeans will be more likely to support Israel fight against “Islamic Terrorism” ie ongoing apartheid of Palestinians and the wars the US is waging and will wage against Israel’s adversaries in the Greater Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Iran, Lybia) while comprehending why there is no way to negotiate with Palestinians and Muslims in general and why Israel should be the major power in the Greater Middle East (Israel is the only real secular “Western” democracy in the area etc), instead of those religiously fanatics and low IQ tribalist Muslims.

To illustrate my point, everyone can see now some Neocons, Zionist and Crypto-Zionist “influencers” (read: PR agitators) at work:

– the Gatestone Institute
– Daniel Pipes
– Bill Maher
– Sam Harris
– Gad Saad (youtube Gadfather)
– Ezra Levant (the Rebel Media)

and others who on the one hand are righteously condemning and criticizing Islam and the European politicians allowing so many “refugees” in their countries, and on the other either blatantly pushing for immigration and encouraging politicians to accept more (good/moderate Muslims without being picky, of course i.e. all Muslims) “refugees”, or dancing around the fact that major Jewish organizations, Lobbies and other groups of pressure with great political influence are actively pushing and lobbying for allowing more immigration to Europe – knowing full well most of those immigrants are Muslim and incompatible with Western culture, and will create conflicts and division within Western societies.

The following video is just a clear example. Gad Saad, professor of Concordia University in Montreal, a Zionist and fierce critic of Islam, multiculturalism and the refugee invasion of Europe. He has a youtube channel with 70k+ followers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gad_Saad

When confronted with the fact that major Jewish organizations and other pressure groups in Sweden are lobbying and pressuring the Government to accept more Muslim refugees, he, instead of being puzzled by the fact such a contradictory agenda is being pushed (maybe he was unaware) or condemning such a foolish agenda as he condemns the Swedish bureaucrats (maybe he is aware such actions from the Jewish organizations are taking place)
he is clearly caught off guard and comes up with the most bizarre justification you will ever hear: the “Dihmmi” status of the leaders of major Jewish organizations and lobbies in the Swedish “Islamic society” forces them to accept more Muslim refugees and remain silent not to ofend the Muslims already there?!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhimmi

See by yourself and try to understand what the apologetic good man is trying to say.

* Pathetic article. Jews care more about destroying white societies than they do about Israel. they believe whites are their primary enemy. They will only find out too late that whites are the most pro-Jewish group on the planet and the only ones who will tolerate Jews playing such a dominant role while working to undermine the majority.

* It is true that white Christians are the only people in the world who manage to suffer Jews for a long period. The are two main reasons: one is that being racially and culturally European is to be the most open and accepting in the world of ‘Other’ peoples. It is the exact opposite of the Leftist delusion. The other reason is that Christianity makes Jews our kin by adoption.

Either or both of those are not merely fine but beneficial to white Christian society if they are kept under control by historic Christian doctrines and identity. They are insanely out of control now, and have been increasingly since at least the dawn of the Enlightenment, precisely because the Modern age is in full rebellion against Christendom and its morals and identities.

As in every era and locale in which Jews have amassed great wealth and resulting political clout, Jews today are sowing the seed of their next destruction. And now that seed is principally about Moslems. This is the era of the highest % of Moslems who desire the total extermination of Jews. Most Moslems are not such people, but hundreds of millions of Moslems around the globe are. And they are preparing now to start taking over many Western countries by democratic vote after mass immigration. And then they will strike.

If the good ole boys of white middle America have been totally dispossessed and demoralized, as Leftists and Neocon Jews both want, who is going to help defend Jews from the Moslem hordes?

Jews who want the West filled with Moslems are suicidally insane.
