Beyond the pale: China’s cheerful racists (Video)

Ideas about racial hierarchies are not outdated ­anathema here but unquestioned belief.

Setting off to spend a year teaching English in Zhejiang province in south-eastern China, I expected plenty of surprises. But what struck me most was something they tend not to tell you about in the guidebooks: the racism.

It started when I went around the classroom, asking pupils which city they were from. When I got to a slightly darker-skinned boy, his classmates thought it was hilarious to shout ‘Africa!’ It’s a theme. A girl with a similar complexion was taunted with monkey sounds; her peers refused to sit next to her, saying she smelt bad. I apparently erred when, teaching the word for wife, I showed my students a picture of Michelle Obama. The image of the then First Lady was greeted with exaggerated sounds of repulsion: ‘So ugly!’ they said. ‘So black!’

Such comments would have been treated harshly in a British classroom a quarter-century ago, let alone today. But my own protestations were met with confused faces — crestfallen that they’d disappointed their teacher, but clueless as to the nature of their mistake. And this stretches far beyond the classroom. To many Chinese, ideas about racial hierarchies are not outdated anathema but unquestioned belief.

Columbia Professor Urges Democrats to End ‘Disastrous’ Identity Politics

“American liberalism in the twenty-first century is in crisis,” writes Columbia University Professor Mark Lilla, due in no small part to its embrace of a “disastrous” identity politics that divides instead of uniting.

In his newly released book, The Once and Future Liberal: After Identity Politics, Lilla, a self-described “frustrated American liberal,” decries the implosion of the Democratic Party and liberalism itself, brought on by a growing disconnect from middle America and the inability to paint a compelling vision for the future.

Lilla’s new work expands upon “The End of Identity Liberalism,” an essay he wrote shortly after last November’s Presidential election. In it, he urged fellow liberals to face up to their party’s share in responsibility for Trump’s victory, which Lilla attributed to the rise “identity liberalism.”

Liberalism, Lilla contends in his book, is rightly considered by many “as a creed professed mainly by educated urban elites cut off from the rest of the country who see the issues of the day principally through the lens of identities.”

The core of their error, Lilla suggests, is that Democrats have thrown themselves headlong into identity politics, focusing on what divides rather than what unites. As a result, many feel alienated from a party that once knew how to bring people together.

Racial Communism

Seriously—the white dindus of Charlottesville might as well join BLM; they have the responsibility-deflection thing down pat. And the “hair” thing, too. When I saw the mug shot of cat-fancying, mom’s-apartment-dwelling Fields, I was struck by my immediate revulsion at his adorable little “fashy” haircut.

So many white “dindus.” Last week, in the wake of the car-ramming incident at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, hundreds of alt-rightists and white nationalists decided to drop the bravado and go all “dindu nuffin.” “Antifa started pickin’ on us and we wuzn’t even doin’ nuthin’.” It was an overnight personality shift that would have shocked Ebenezer Scrooge. Prior to fash-boy James Alex Fields’ “bowling for communists” moment, all I saw on social media was a torrent of fevered posts and comments from far-rightists gleefully anticipating the epic brawl that was about to go down. There was excitement in the air…the rally was going to be a battle royal between noble Viking warriors and thuggish Antifa goons. It was going to be legendary.

Then some moron in a Challenger had to go ruin it for everyone.

America warned of ‘race war’ if whites ‘fight with anger’ (Video)

Black leader: ‘It’s going to be bad for the country’

To all the white people in the U.S. who worry that anti-white racism is at a fever pitch in today’s post-Charlottesville America, black radio host and author Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson has a simple message: You’re 100 percent correct.

“I’ve been telling white people for the last 27 years that you’d better start speaking up,” Peterson told Stefan Molyneux recently on the Freedomain Radio podcast. “You’ve got to speak up, because if you don’t speak up, eventually you’re going to become angry. And then when you become angry, you’re going to come out fighting in the wrong way. And then they’re going to accuse you.

“They’re going to pass laws. They’re going to say, ‘Look, I told you the white man was racist.’ They’re going to blame you even more so.”

In Peterson’s view, white racism has nothing to do with the black community’s problems, and he encourages whites to boldly state this. However, white people have been afraid to speak up for the past several decades for fear of being called racist, he says.

Zimbabwe’s Mugabe: ‘We will not prosecute killers of white farmers’

‘We are going to take those farms and re-distribute them to our youths’

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has said that people who murdered white farmers during a government-sanctioned purge in the 2000s will never be prosecuted.

The 93-year-old president addressed a rally in Harare on Monday to mark Heroes’ Day, which commemorates soldiers who have fought for the country, particularly in its independence war against British colonizers.

Zimbabwe implemented a controversial land reform program in 2000 that saw squatters invade and seize hundreds of white-owned farms around the country. The violent seizures resulted in the murder of several white farmers, with many more displaced, and close associates of Mugabe given large chunks of land.

Bokhari: The Week Silicon Valley Killed Free Speech

To those who followed the trajectory of Silicon Valley over the past few years, their abandonment of free speech last week would not have come as a surprise. Indeed, social media platforms like Twitter, which previously styled itself as “the free speech wing of the free speech party,” abandoned it long ago.

Even so, the decision of first GoDaddy and then Google and then Cloudflare to cut off support for Neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer – effectively banning them from the internet – came as a shock to many. To those who believe that all content, no matter how deplorable, should be able to exist on the web, it heralds nothing less than the end of free speech in cyberspace.

It is not just the right and far-right who have seen the danger. The Electronic Frontier Foundaton, the most prominent defenders of digital rights, also raised the alarm last week.

“Protecting free speech is not something we do because we agree with all of the speech that gets protected. We do it because we believe that no one—not the government and not private commercial enterprises—should decide who gets to speak and who doesn’t.”

“We strongly believe that what GoDaddy, Google, and Cloudflare did here was dangerous.”

James Damore: Google is “pushing” diversity “religion” on employees (Video)

On Wednesday’s show, Claire Lehmann and I spoke at length to James Damore, whose controversial “diversity memo” got him fired from Google but turned him into practically a household name overnight.

James talks about how the fallout from the memo affected his personal life, the scientific underpinnings of his observations, what Google’s corporate culture is like, and more.

National Gallery Commissions Anti-White Video With Public Money (Video)

National Galleries Scotland, the National Gallery, London, and the Heritage Lottery Fund have commissioned a video in which white people are disparaged as “inbred spawn soon to die out” for an exhibition on ‘Male Gaze’.

The piece shows Liberia-born vocalist Alloysious Massaquoi, of the Mercury Prize-winning Young Fathers, strip half-naked in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and shuffle through it in his bare feet, shadow boxing and making angry, thrusting gestures towards the portraits.

Riled by the lack of black representation, he denigrates the gallery’s subjects as “dead, random white dudes” and their memorials as “a gravestone that a dog pisses against”.

“Does this mean I don’t exist? That I’m not a man?” he demands. “Because I don’t see a face like mine, framed in gold, hanging on the wall? Have you taken all the space?”

“Dead, random white dude. What’s so special about you?
I am here, against the wall, framed in gold, smiling in my privilege,
The privilege of being alive, while you are now framed in dust.
The signs of wealth, the insignia of status,
They are a gravestone that a dog pisses against, shifting, cracked in clay.
They are a long line of inbred spawn, soon to die out themselves.
But I am here. My very existence, my closeness to your face, my breath, all offends thee.”

Google Employees Openly Shame All Men And White People In Meetings

The Google engineer that was fired for writing an internal memo that criticized the company’s diversity policy, James Damore, said that employees at Google openly criticize people based on gender and race in meetings.

In a Thursday interview with Ben Shapiro, Damore explained: “You can openly shame white people or all men [at Google], and we do this in our company-wide meetings.”

“There’s definitely a bias toward certain movements,” he added.

Damore also asserted that Google firing him for writing about what they called “harmful gender stereotypes,” only proved the company’s harmful focus on diversity.

“They’re putting their ideology before truth,” Damore said. “When one side is just trying to guilt you and call you names, and the other is actually using evidence and science, you know which one is actually seeking truth.”

The former Google employee also detailed the fact that diversity issues are often exaggerated at the company. He used an example in which a female employee claimed that she didn’t feel “included.”

According to Damore, the woman posted a question “that had something to do with gender,” and received 300 votes on her post. 50 of the votes were negative, which gave her the opinion that one in six people disagreeing with her meant she was not welcome.

Muslim Professor at CA University: “Genocide” of White Racists “Morally Required”

Mohammed Abed, a California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) tenure-track professor of ethics, social & political philosophy, and classical Islamic philosophy believes that genocide of white racists is “morally required”.

Mohammed Abed claims that sometimes you just have to commit genocide to save the world from the evil people…like white racists.

David Cole broke down Abed’s academic paper “The Concept of Genocide Reconsidered” which was originally published in 2006. Cole says in a Taki’s Mag post:

Abed reasons, it’s sometimes “morally required” to commit genocide, and he hasn’t been shy about advancing that argument in a series of lectures and essays that have somehow managed to stay under the radar of the media (especially the right-leaning media) over the past few years.

Abed lays out his central thesis in the paper’s abstract: “Genocide is not in any sense distinctively heinous. Nor is it necessarily immoral.”

Morally justified genocide? Abed realizes this might be a tough sell:

Many will no doubt be shocked by these claims. Surely a view that has such unsavory implications should be rejected. In fact, it ought to be condemned in no uncertain terms. Reactions of this sort are overblown.
