Logic vs. emotion

Quite logical:

What's amusing is that this "representation matters" nonsense only applies where the coloreds are in low numbers. Their own rhetoric is curiously missing from the NFL and the NBA, for example. Why are they not fighting for White representation in those arenas? Their silence is violence!

Anyway, someone wasn't happy and called her stupid. Her reply:

Oh, Margarita, you privileged, pampered, White girl, you!

The last one:


Real incomes crushed

Vox Day:

The two primary problems are debt and immigration, as can be seen by this comparison of 1952 and 2020 prices.

A few data points from the table:

Average income in 1952: $6,850
Average house price in 1952: $9,075

Average income today: $33,706
Average house price today: $312,803

The average American could buy a house with 133% of his annual income in 1952. Today, the average guy requires 928% of his annual income to buy a house. In seventy years, an average house has become seven times more expensive!

If one adds the young and foolish students who take on mountains of debt to go through university, then the situation becomes even more dire for them since the increase in tuition is much more worse than the real estate boom.


Creepy Joe to Minnesota

Isn't this curious:

If you believe the polls, Joe Biden has a commanding lead nationally and is beating Trump in the battleground states. For sure, he’s headed to an easy victory, right?

Trump supporters say, “Don’t believe the polls,” and pollsters are convinced that after their embarrassing failure in 2016 they’ve got it right this time.

Okay, well, then why is Joe Biden going to Minnesota on Friday? A Republican hasn’t won the state since 1972, and yet, four days before the election, the Biden campaign, which has enough money on hand to work at expanding the map for Democrats, is coming to what should be safe territory for them.

Apparently, Biden is leading by a comfortable 8 points in Minnesota. If he loses there on Tuesday, then it's game over.


Do you even multitask, bro?

Another death, another peaceful shopping spree:

"Justice for whoever it was!" he cried as he made a stop at Best Buy and picked up an iPad for his mom and all six Star Wars movies on Blu-ray for his brother. "And you know what? I'm gonna treat myself," he added as he threw a few Xbox games into his cart for himself. [...]

According to sources, Parsons is hoping there's another police shooting sometime before Christmas, as he forgot to pick up an HDMI cable.


The government won't protect you

So, what can one do? As Neo said in The Matrix, "Guns. Lots of guns."


No-good very-bad super-evil far-right

Yup. The administration that cuts taxes and reduces regulations which makes life a bit easier and simpler for the average person is portrayed as the modern-day regime of Hitler. Of course, by extension, the people who support the administration are worthy of cancellation and worse.


Bad Feelings Matter

Peoples of the West should start trusting their instincts:

A security guard at the Manchester Arena said he had a “bad feeling” about suicide bomber Salman Abedi but did not approach the Islamic terrorist because he was afraid of being branded a racist if his suspicions were wrong.

Kyle Lawler, who was 18-years-old at the time of the Manchester Arena bombing, told police that he noticed Abedi was “fidgety and sweating” prior to the attack which killed 22 people and injured more than 800 others in May 2017.

Nobody called him a racist. That's what truly matters.

Even the police and the media, when reporting on Islamic terrorism, hesitate to call it what it is for fear of appearing racist.

It was only in July that The Times reported that Police in the UK may stop using the words “Islamic terrorism” and “jihadis” when discussing terrorist attacks carried out by Muslims who claim Islam as their motivation.

The move was proposed in order to prevent the public from forming a negative view of the Islamic religion. The reform was requested by a Muslim Police organisation that argued the official use of the terms are responsible for negative perceptions and stereotypes which perpetuated discrimination and Islamophobia.

Event: A Muslim slaughters dozens of infidels.

Reaction: Won't you feel sorry for the poor Muslims?


Hate is Good

Ah yes, that famous Scotsman, Mr. Humza Yousaf:

MSPs questioned Scottish Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf over the controversial legislation during an evidence session before the Holyrood Justice Committee for the first time today. The new proposed legislation will introduce a stirring-up of hate offence on characteristics including disability, sexual orientation and age. [...]

This latest admission from the justice secretary confirms what so many respondents to the consultation have warned – that as drafted, this Bill means free speech could be criminalised within the home with friends you’ve invited over for a dinner party, and that Mr Yousaf is perfectly comfortable with that.

Of course. Won't take long before this "stirring-up of hate offence" will be used against those who disagree with the mass importation of Muslims and other immigrants. Eventually, those who voice opposition to this law in their homes will be guilty of hate offence.


Are you not convinced?

Fake News poll numbers:

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden holds a commanding lead over President Trump in Wisconsin in a new poll of the key battleground state released less than a week before Election Day.

The ABC News-Washington Post poll found Biden supported by 57 percent of likely voters, far ahead of the president's 40 percent. The former vice president has gained 5 percentage points since the last ABC News-Washington Post poll in mid-September, while the president lost 6 points.

Remember, Donald Trump won Wisconsin four years ago. This poll is saying that there has been an almost 18-point swing towards Creepy Joe. What are they smoking?

We'll know just how horribly wrong these numbers are in one week.


Joggers in Philadelphia

Don't walk towards police with a knife:

Angry crowds took to the streets in West Philadelphia overnight after police shot and killed a man armed with a knife Monday, with some in the crowds throwing rocks and bricks at police and some looting or vandalizing businesses.

At least 30 police officers were hurt, police said. One was hospitalized, a 56-year-old sergeant who was struck by a pickup truck at 52nd and Walnut streets early Tuesday. Her leg was broken, among other injuries, police said.

Do you know what time it is? It's time for mostly peaceful shopping!


Socialism doesn't work

Lauren Chen understands that there's no reasoning with such people.


Not tired of winning!

The God-Emperor gets his third justice:

Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court late Monday by a deeply divided Senate, Republicans overpowering Democrats to install President Donald Trump's nominee days before the election and secure a likely conservative court majority for years to come.

Trump's choice to fill the vacancy of the late liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg potentially opens a new era of rulings on abortion, the Affordable Care Act and even his own election. Democrats were unable to stop the outcome, Trump's third justice on the court, as Republicans race to reshape the judiciary.

This was a nice touch.

Justice Clarence Thomas administered the constitutional Oath to Barrett before a crowd of about 200.


No country for Trump supporters

When Danielle Reiss attended President Trump’s campaign rally in Henderson, Nevada, on Sep. 13, she had no idea it would cost her job.

She got an email from the agency:

“We saw your latest Instagram post in which you held a ‘Make America Great Again’ poster,” the email said. “From this, we infer that you support the policies and ideologies of Donald Trump’s administration, which blatantly undermine the values we uphold at Pop Off.” [...]

The email Reiss received cited the agency’s commitment to “stand for equality, inclusion, and kindness in everything we do,” before expressing the agency’s decision to terminate any future partnership with Reiss.

Nothing says "inclusion" like rejecting half the population of the country.


Make Benefit for Conflict

Taleb is learning that some races are more equal than others.

For example, here's a story from Quebec:

A high school teacher in Montréal-Nord is being called out after using the N-word multiple times during an online class captured on video.  The man in the video has been identified as Vincent Ouellette, a history teacher at Henri-Bourassa High School, a large and diverse French school in the city's northeast end.

You see, only Black people can say nigger without consequences. If a White person utters that word, then Black people combust:

"I understand it was in an academic setting, but to still see a white person — someone's white mouth saying these words — I was taken aback. It was wrong to me."

Instead of shrugging and moving on with her life, she is basically saying that White people can't say that word because Black people are feeble and fragile. Also, more Affirmative Action please, because Black people are dumb.

This is one reason why diversity in large numbers doesn't work. Sooner or later, you get utterly different academic and legal standards for the diverse races which only accelerates the inherent conflict between the groups.


Basement Biden

"I have never said I oppose fracking."

-- Creepy Joe

One of the dumbest things that Creepy Joe did in the debate today was to tell The God-Emperor to show the tape.

The Blue Wall is not amused by this nonsense:


For a few euros

Do they follow the Religion That Must Not Be Named?

Two students were paid to identify a teacher to the man who beheaded him last Friday in an attack that shocked France, prosecutors have alleged. [...]

The students, aged 14 and 15, are alleged to have described Mr Paty, 47, to Anzorov and stayed with him for more than two hours outside the school until the teacher appeared, Mr Ricard said.

The pair, who cannot be named for legal reasons, are two of seven people the French authorities are seeking to prosecute over the brutal attack.
