“I mentioned to several of the people I interviewed for this piece that I’d met my husband in an elevator, in 2001. …I was fascinated by the extent to which this prompted other women to sigh and say that they’d just love to meet someone that way. And yet quite a few of them suggested that if a random guy started talking to them in an elevator, they would be weirded out. ‘Creeper! Get away from me,’ one woman imagined thinking. ‘Anytime we’re in silence, we look at our phones,” explained her friend, nodding.’”
“Surveys, such as this by YouGov, show that large numbers of women consider normal introductory behavior to be sexual harassment. Twenty-eight percent of young women (age 18 to 24) consider paying her a complement to be harassment; twenty-eight percent consider winking at her to be harassment. Forty-eight consider placing your hand on a woman’s lower back to be harassment. Young men deal with young women, aware that a large fraction are primed to see them as predators.”
So these women want their prince charming to come along and sweep them off their feet out of nowhere, and yet they’re more likely to tell that potential prince charming to get lost than they are to swoon over him.
I wrote last week about the epidemic of porn addiction and how it is killing real-life sex. That’s something men are inflicting upon themselves (and women, by definition).
But this, right here, is a scourge that women are inflicting on themselves–and men, of course. Women have become caught up in a mass panic over men, and wouldn’t you know it, these women are finding it ain’t so easy to meet decent guys these days.
There’s this widespread perception in society that Every Man Is A Potential Rapist and, as the quote above points out, men are aware of it, and so go to great lengths to avoid being a “creeper”–and often that means just avoiding women altogether.
A lot of this has to do with the widespread belief in the false stat that 1 in 5 women are raped. So many women believe this, and act accordingly. They think that at any moment they could be raped.
But do you really think 1 in 5 women have been forcibly raped by a stranger? That is such a rare thing to happen, and yet we’re led to believe that it happens all the time, everywhere. But it doesn’t. Just think of all the women you know in your life and it becomes pretty clear almost immediately that the stat is a lie.
Crime statistics show that the rape rate in the US is about 0.5 out of every 1,000 people. Additionally, only 26% of rapes are done by strangers. Most rapes are carried out by people the victim knows: 38% of rapes are done by friends/acquaintances, 26% by current or former intimate partners, and the remaining 7% are by relatives.
The odds of being raped by a stranger are very low, but perceived by women to be very, very high. This is by design: feminists created the rape culture myth to ruin relations between men and women. Because women who are in healthy, traditional relationships with decent alpha males are highly unlikely to be hysterical and shrieking in the streets with pussyhats on their heads. Happy, satisfied women are the death of feminism.
Feminists need women miserable, unsatisfied, and alone. That’s how they become feminists. The single, mad-at-the-world, 30+ catlady is their ideal target.
As for men, feminists prefer them to be cowed, submissive betas, and for two reasons: one, because they’ll roll over on demand, and two, because they ultimately cannot satisfy their women, both physically and emotionally.
Even if we grant that many rapes go unreported, the rate is still not anywhere near 1 in 5. Christina Hoff Sommers (aka “Based Mom”) cites reputable studies that put the actual college campus rape rate (where there is said to be a “rape culture crisis” disproportionate to society at large) at 1 in 40, not 1 in 5.
It’s a full-time job debunking all these leftist lies. If we had an honest media worth anything, they’d be doing it, but unfortunately the media today is the source of the lies and misinformation.
Rhodes’ tweet is particularly rich given the fact that in 2013, the Obama administration, which he was working for at the time, did exactly what the Trump administration is doing today:
Did we hear any hysteria over the Obama Administration GASSING INNOCENT REFUGEES? No. In fact, we didn’t hear jack shit.
There’s a reason they’re all using the phrase “gassing.”
We’ve all heard the phrase “gassing” before. It’s mostly used to describe how Hitler tried to exterminate the Jews–he “gassed them.”
And back in 2003 in an effort to sell the Iraq War, proponents reminded us that Saddam Hussein was an evil man who “gassed the Kurds.”
So it’s no wonder leftists are trying to say Trump is “gassing” the migrant caravan.
It’s really quite something to see them all using the same phrase:
Trump, asked if he's comfortable tear gassing migrant children at the border, responds: "They had to use, because they were being rushed by some very tough people." (via CBS) pic.twitter.com/cOvhAiQrpL
Some of them aren’t just implying THIS IS EXACTLY LIKE HITLER!!!11!! Some are just outright saying it:
#MomsWickedTruth my 90 yr old mother says “I told you he was like Hitler. This gassing at the border-you know who else gassed women and children? Hitler. I thought we destroyed the Nazis in World War II, but look what’s going on here. I never thought I would see this. So sick.”
To these mendacious pieces of work, there’s no difference between using non-lethal tear gas to disperse rock-throwing invading hordes and using lethal gas to systematically exterminate a race of people detained in death camps.
Keeping up with their dishonesty is a full-time job.
And have you noticed that lately, the Dems have just said “fuck it” and are now calling everyone in the caravan “refugees”?
Their 2019 Newspeak dictionary has changed “undocumented immigrant” to simply “refugee” because the term “refugee” evokes sympathy.
Let in the refugees! They’re all fleeing misery and evil!
Classifying all prospective immigrants as refugees works to the left’s benefit because we have the moral imperative to take in refugees.
Even though the “refugees” were offered asylum in Mexico and said, “Nah, fuck that, we want to go to America to get all that awesome welfare and bang those sexy American chicks.”
Not very refugee-like behavior. It would be like if someone got sick and demanded to be rushed to the hospital, but upon arriving they said, “I don’t like this hospital. I want to go to a different one.”
So many traditional conservatives–or “Old Right” conservatives, Reagan conservatives–insist that they only oppose illegal immigration. They claim they have no problem with legal migration and in fact want more of it. Here’s an example, James Woods, who I usually like and who seems to really “get it” for the most part:
Seriously who cares? This person really just wants to live a life of his/her/etc. own choosing. There are bigger issues Americans need to work on. My two top concerns: a) improved and streamlined health care, and b) making LEGAL immigration easier and ILLEGAL immigration harder. https://t.co/kz6r0MLAzM
It’s definitely not because more immigrants will benefit the GOP electorally.
Because “Diversity is our strength”? I figured Woods would be too smart to believe that nonsense. But maybe not.
I really think a lot of the pre-Trump Republicans have been trained to take “Diversity is our strength” as an article of faith in our new national religion of secular globalism, or have at least been scared into accepting it by the threat of being called a racist.
My theory is that many Republicans who supported PC globalist candidates like Bush, McCain, Romney and even Reagan (I know he’s the Sacred Cow of all Sacred Cows on the right but the fact is, he signed a massive amnesty bill in 1986 and got no border security in exchange) deluded themselves into believing this “Diversity is our strength” nonsense to rationalize their candidates’ support for open borders.
Of course, the candidates themselves supported open borders and increased immigration simply because their big business donors and allies wanted the cheap labor. There is little else to it from their perspective.
But in order to avoid the cognitive dissonance that would come from supporting GOP candidates who were in favor of the demographic transformation of America from a predominantly White Christian nation into a “diverse” collection of competing and non-assimilating tribes, Republican voters had to come up with some reassuring lie to tell themselves. The truth was too difficult to handle.
It’s really hard to admit that your party’s nominees aren’t actually on your side. The ramifications of that are too depressing to contemplate: either you have to switch parties, which is out of the question, or you have to admit that neither party is actually on your side and the political system is totally corrupt and broken, which is an incredibly bleak reality for people to reckon with.
So in order to keep on pretending they weren’t powerless, in their minds they told themselves that Romney, Bush, McCain and Reagan weren’t actually selling out the country by supporting open borders and amnesty. No, they were just trying to give us more Diversity, which we all know Is Our Strength.
Yes, that’s it!The reason the GOP didn’t offer a serious immigration restrictionist option until Donald Trump (a candidate the party Establishment famously resisted and still resists to this day) was not because the party was in hopelessly thrall to rootless corporations seeking cheap labor, but rather because Diversity Is Our Strength and everyone agrees!
The debate was over, the science was settled, there were no other options available for you to choose from. Candidate A wants more Diversity, and so do Candidates B, C, D, and E. We don’t have the option to vote against Diversity because Diversity is awesome as hell and everyone agrees.
That was what most Republicans told themselves prior to Trump. Because their only options were to delude themselves or abandon the party, which was not feasible.
Another part of the reassuring lie about diversity was that many immigrants would be “natural conservatives.” Or that they’d be voting Republican once they reached the middle class and achieved the American Dream.
We were also assured that it’s a racist conspiracy theory to suggest even one American in the history of this nation has ever had his job taken by an immigrant, or that even one nickel of government welfare has ever gone to an immigrant. And we were also informed that immigrants never ever commit crimes and in fact make us all safer because apparently they’re all more civilized than us barbaric Americans (who immigrants for some reason want to live among.)
But now that Trump has come along, Republicans no longer have to delude themselves about immigration.
So let’s be honest here: what’s the real reason above all else we oppose mass immigration? Because we oppose the demographic transformation of our country.
Yes, I know, we’ll all say illegal immigration is bad because it costs Americans jobs, increases crime, costs the government money in welfare and healthcare, and it’s a pipeline for horrible drugs. Those are all valid reasons.
But what’s the real reason, above all? You know what it is. You’re just afraid to say it because the media will scream RACIST!!! But let’s be honest:
I don’t want to become a minority. You don’t want to become a minority.
White people are not allowed to want to remain the majority in this country. Democrats have them trained to believe they’re Bad People for wanting to remain the majority.
But it’s not wrong, or evil, or racist. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise.
If it’s racist for us to want to remain the majority, then why isn’t it racist for nonwhites to want to become the majority?
Why isn’t it racist for Dems to deliberately pursue policies that decrease the white population in this country?
Both sides want to be the majority, but only one side is called racist for it. This is entirely by design.
If Republicans were importing immigrants that voted 80% Republican, you can bet your ass Democrats would be howling in objection and demanding a halt to immigration. You and I both know they wouldn’t be biting their tongues out of fear of being called racists.
But for some reason Reagan/Bush Conservatives have trained themselves to not say anything about the fact that the Dems are importing scores of future Dem voters under the guise of a “multicultural” and compassionate immigration policy.
“Wouldn’t want to give anyone the impression that we’re Racists!”
The real reason we want to get tough on immigration is to slow or even stop the demographic transformation of our country. And to do that it takes more than just ending illegal immigration. We have to make demographic preservation a priority of our immigration policy.
That sounds hard to read. You’re wincing and uncomfortable because you’ve been told over and over that That’s Racist. You’ve been trained to believe that whites acting in their own self-interest will lead to another Nazi holocaust. That’s by design.
But understand this: Democrats have made the demographic replacement of white people a priority of their immigration policy.
And they’ve been succeeding, too, because Republicans have offered little to no resistance up to this point because they’re afraid of being called racists.
For virtually all of American history, America was ~85% white, 13% black and 2% other. Then, after Ted Kennedy’s 1965 Immigration reform, the white percentage began shrinking, the black percentage stayed the same and we added categories for Hispanic and Asian, both of which began to grow significantly. Today America is ~62% white, 13% black, 16% Hispanic, 5% Asian and 4% other/mixed.
The demographic transformation ushered in by the 1965 law was deliberate, and it is not racist at all to oppose it. White people are allowed to oppose the Democrats’ deliberate effort to phase them out.
Now, I don’t think Teddy Kennedy initially intended to turn America into a third world hellhole by importing people from third world hellholes. I think his motivation was an overly idealistic, pie-in-the-sky, multiculturalist fantasy. I think back in the 60s, leftists really did believe all that shit about Cultural Enrichment and the Melting Pot, or maybe they just wanted some more foreign cuisine options around town.
I don’t think their initial goal was malicious demographic replacement, and this is because they had no serious reason to seek it in 1965. They had just won the 1964 Presidential election in a landslide and had also won in 1960. They lost in 1956 and 1952, but prior to that they had won five straight elections from 1932 to 1948. The Democratic coalition was strong. I don’t think Dems in 1965 were thinking, “Shit, we’d better import a new electorate or we’re never gonna win again.”
I believe it took them a while to realize that if they were going to win consistently and turn this country into a socialist hellhole (or, in their eyes, a utopia), they’d have to import a new electorate. They probably didn’t realize this until the 1990s when California went permanently blue due to mass Hispanic Immigration. That was when they realized that changing the demographics of this country could one day ensure them a permanent hold on power.
California, believe it or not, was a solidly Republican state for decades prior to 1992. Presidents Reagan and Nixon both hailed from California, and the state voted for the Republican Presidential candidate in every election but one between 1952-1988 (1964).
But now, California has not voted Republican since 1988 and probably never will again, and the reason is immigration. The state has been completely transformed.
Today California’s population is nearly one third foreign born, up from 21.7% in 1990. The state was 19% Hispanic in 1980, today it is over 40%. Hispanics represent the largest racial group in California. It is not a coincidence that over that time, California went from a reliably red state to a deep blue one.
Unless we get a handle on immigration, what has happened in California is what will happen nationwide. When white people became a minority in California, the state became permanently blue. The same will happen to the country at large when white people become a minority sometime in the next 25 years.
I’m not saying end all immigration. I’m saying we should end all illegal immigration and dramatically reform legal immigration by cutting the numbers of legal immigrants and changing the countries of origin away from the “diversity lottery” system.
We need to move away from “diversity” and instead towards cultural fit and merit. We shouldn’t be importing people from, say, Eritrea just because America needs more diversity and representation from every country. There is nothing inherently desirable about having people from a wide array of ethnic and national backgrounds, yet that assumption has been the foundation of our immigration policy since 1965.
We should be importing people who have something to offer and will enrich our country. A surgeon from Denmark will make a much better immigrant than a low-skilled worker from, say, Tajikistan.
Most Europeans have a decent grasp of English. I just came back from Germany and basically everyone speaks English. It was easy for me in Germany and it would be relatively easy for a German in America. We need people who are like this: they will be good linguistic and cultural fits. It’s not that much of a transition from Europe to America, and so Europeans make the best immigrants.
It’s not just “because Europeans are white”, either. There are lots of white people who wouldn’t and don’t make good immigrants, particularly Eastern Europeans.
So Republicans need to make a choice here: are we actually going to do something to try to stop the Democrats from phasing white people out as a racial group?
Or are we going to continue to delude ourselves and ignore it in exchange for the hope of not being called racists?
And the worst part is, every Republican knows the Democrats will call us racists no matter how hard we try to prove otherwise.
Basically the choice is: fight back on immigration, be slandered as Racists.
Or: don’t fight back on immigration, still be slandered as Racists anyway.
Another one bites the dust: Jesse Kelly, I believe he writes at “The Resurgent,” has just been banned from Twitter. Why? Because he’s based, tells it like it is and gives no fucks. He’s an alpha male who skewers leftists on a daily basis. So of course he’s gotta go.
He’s the latest in a long line of prominent conservatives to be banned by Twitter:
This was the official reason (or lack thereof) Twitter gave Kelly:
“Please do not respond to this email.”
So they don’t even tell him what specifically he said, and then they tell him not to respond. You’re banned forever and that’s the end of it.
This is basically what Medium told me about my old website.
Pretty soon Twitter will be totally devoid of any decent Republican voices. The only “Republicans” left will be the Officially Approved Lapdog Republicans like Bill Kristol (who was recently revealed to be funded by a leftwing billionaire), Joe Scarborough, Max Boot and the other virtue signaling losers.
Twitter is enforcing the intolerant left’s cultural agenda. Social media must be a sterile, conformist hive mind of bland, politically correct leftism. It must only be hospitable for NPCs.
You will be free to discuss any topic so long as you follow the official rules.
“Gender is a social construct.”
“Colin Kaepernick is a hero.”
“Orange Man Bad!”
“Did you see SNL last night?”
“ORANGE MAN BAD!!!”
Big tech companies are officially the foremost threats to free speech in America. The government doesn’t have shit on Twitter, Facebook and Google.
And if you think it’s bad now, just wait until the next Democrat President, when they’re all on the same side!
I would no sooner trust the future of my country and its people to a bunch of Big Business CEOs than I would to a bunch of politicians in Washington. I don’t want a centrally planned economy but I also don’t want an economy dominated by mega corporations—many of whom have no allegiance to America given their multinational nature.
Ben Shapiro and Tucker debated whether it would be the right course of action to forbid trucking companies from replacing human drivers with self driving trucks. Tucker said absolutely do it. He made the point that he’s a capitalist, but that we shouldn’t treat it as our religion. It is not an infallible system. It is not the solution to everything. It has flaws. Doesn’t mean it’s not the best system we’ve come up with.
But a lot of True Conservatives mistake that phrase—the best system we’ve come up with thus far—to mean totally flawless and impossible to improve in any way.
Big business does not have our back. First of all, most of them are in thrall to the left. They push leftwing social talking points, are run by militant HR gestapos that are outright hostile to white men.
Look at what Heineken puts on its bottles nowadays:
Second of all, they are out to make money, not better society. Sure, their products improve our lives but the companies themselves are not striving for a better society. They would fire all their workers and replace them with robots in a second if they could.
When NAFTA was passed in 1993, the big companies moved their plants and factories to Mexico and Asia, leaving American workers—entire communities, even whole regions—behind. There have been massive social and cultural consequences for big business pursuing its own interests. Yes, we get cheap shit, but also we get decimated communities and a hollowed our middle class.
What’s the point of cheaper goods when dad’s out of a job and your oldest son can’t get a job so he gets high and drunk all the time?
A pure free market will pursue efficiency, and that ends with a large number of people out of jobs. You cannot simply blindly trust the free market. This is a major deficiency in the Reagan-worshipping Movement Conservatism. The free market is not the answer to everything.
