The Muslim Pets Of Minnesota Democrats

All religions are purportedly equal in America but in Minnesota there's only one that's exalted, praised and promoted by those in the DFL, in and out of office, to say nothing of their handmaidens in the media. They aren't subtle about it and that's the point: some barely literate, welfare dependent & criminally active dude from Somalia is far better than you, and your family, who have lived here in Minnesota for generations.

They're not white and you are. This is their literal calculus; they're importing any Third World underclass in order to stay in power, the Great Replacement. That Islam is the most violent, regressive, divisive and per se hateful religion in human history is simply value added to the Cultural Marxists now regnant in this state.

* * * * 

I've written about the dangers of Islam in the West for as long as I've been writing here, or at Alpha News and elsewhere, for more than a decade. I used to be younger. But the message doesn't age and so I couldn't help but be struck by the next-level audacity, the sheer contempt and in-your-faceness of Governor Walz, parroted by his lower echelon minions in state government, who last month wished the forcibly-imported-into-Minnesota Muslims a Happy Ramadan. 

To use their phrase: this isn't who we are. Nor, certainly, wish to become. 

There is, theoretically, nothing wrong with a public official wishing the adherents of one religion or another well on their particular holiday. Personally I'm not fond of it, rather French in fact, when it comes to L'etat and religion. But America was founded and created by Christians, mostly Dutch & British Protestants. So the public square has always contained the uncontainable, God. It should continue to do so.

The trick is to get it right and here Governor Walz and his troops didn't at all and by design. Governor Assistant Football Coach (h/t Sheila Kihne PBUH) was noticeably absent from a daily briefing about the Wuhan virus in Minnesota recently. A credulous Minnesota media repeated his lie that he was observing Good Friday, no questions asked.

The real reason for his absence was that he was caught out in a lie the day before, Holy Thursday, denying he'd predicted there would be 20,000 dead in Minnesota. To which Tom Hauser said: "We have it on tape."

There were no Easter greetings to the Christians of Minnesota by the Governor. They're the enemy and I don't exaggerate. If you think I do, may I suggest you haven't been paying attention? 

Later on Good Friday he tweeted a picture of himself and his daughter, both moronically wearing face masks outdoors. Some observance of the Ultimate Sacrifice, God become Man and slaughtered for our sake. That I'm no longer a Christian (but not an atheist) makes no difference in being able to recognize the calculated slight. Perhaps it heightens it.

I'm able to see clearly how the Regressive Left weaponizes one religion, while denigrating others, in particular the one which is responsible for the creation of America, modernity itself and which no amount of Third World immigrants can sustain. 

Which is the point. 

Their goal is to attack and discredit the very notions upon which America was created. In Minnesota, they're succeeding, in no small part because of a weak, insipid and cowardly entity known as the Republican Party of Minnesota, its elected officials, adherents, donor and lobbyist class. 

If you ever find yourself in a foxhole with one of them, put a bullet in the back of their head. Don't aim for the brain, you'll likely miss that small target; focus on the brain stem.

They're reptiles, after all. 

* * * * 

As everyone knows by now, the City of Minneapolis, in cooperation with the terrorist affiliated CAIR, has commanded that the call to prayer be blared out in the squalid ghetto known as Cedar-Riverside during Ramadan. Everyone in that area who isn't a Mohammedan is oppressed in public. They don't matter. 

What's happening in our midst in Minnesota has been played out repeatedly in Europe. There's one playbook and it's being run here with frightful little opposition, thoughtful or otherwise. You can read all about it in Douglas Murray's book "The Strange Death of Europe."  

* * * * 

There's little public or organized opposition to the exaltation of Mohammedism over Christianity or indeed any other religion. There should be and I've done my bit, will continue to. The insistence by Muslim immigrants wherever they land in Western countries that they're special and needs must have unique accommodations is a demand made by no other group. It deserves to be rejected out of hand. 

Islam isn't special except in its depravity.

Allah was a desert moon god before Mohammad coopted the concept and incorporated it into his derivative religion, a mish mash of Christianity & Judaism, brought forth in the 7th Century and then spread by violence, slaughter and conquest. As you read this, the Muslim slave trade thrives in North Africa. Don't expect Gov. Walz or the local  media to mention that, however.  

* * * *

There are a number of brave citizen groups throughout the state who fight back against being replaced, being ethnically cleansed in their homeland and the homeland of their ancestors, being told that cretins like Ilhan Omar are more American than they and their families are. They are right to resist, to object and to reassert that this country belongs to them and to those who, as President Trump is frequently wont to say, love our people and our values.

They adjust to America; we don't adjust to them. Within reason of course: it's mostly Protestants who get publicly drunk now on Saint Patrick's Day.

Somalis aren't the only Muslim subgroup in Minnesota but they're certainly the largest and most visible. Why, then, do they commit so much crime? Why is welfare dependency so great? Why, still, do 80% of them not speak English at home? All of this goes unreported, of course, because it conflicts with the corrosive narrative pushed by the Cathedral.

These are legitimate questions a free people can and should ask. You'll be punished, on or off line, for doing so but you simply have to persist. After the name calling, the Cultural Marxists have nothing.

Not being afraid is their greatest fear.

Vandana of Varanasi

I encountered her by accident: the reason one travels.

I was staying in a flat outside of the noise and din of Varanasi, the holiest city of Hinduism, far removed from my first visit to Mother India in the deep south of the country, the state of Tamil Nadu, locus of the glory of the Hindu religion and her temples, away from the slaughter and destruction of the Muslims further north, that fake religion of peace which threatens the civilized world wherever it spreads, like a virus.

Here I had gone north. The difference was substantial but similar. The ear piercing cacophony of Indian traffic is an assault when first encountered. Then, like everything in life I suppose, one gets used to it and the noise fades to mere background. I've become adept at the notorious Indian "head wobble" signifying something (yet I somehow manage always to know when to deploy it), as well as making way for cows on the road. Don't pet them, by the way.

The city is also known as Benares, Banaras or Kashi. Puts me in mind of Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul. Some of our world cities have long histories behind their current label.

Except Rome, eternal Rome.

As Mark Twain said: “Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend  and looks twice as old as all of them put together!”

India is Hindu. I've only ever been there to observe. And learn. I'm not a convert. Isn't learning enough?

* * * * 

Like some story board from a movie, I met Vandana on one of my last days in Varanasi. I was staying in a VRBO above where she lived, tight against the ghats on the Ganges, the owner a literal descendant of Indian royalty. The dismantling of them by Nehru is second only to his agreement of the partition of the subcontinent. Some crimes cannot be forgiven.

* * * * 

I had two keys. The first let me out of the yard of my flat, into the back, toward the river, the Ganges, universally called "Ganga" in India. That name was foreign to this foreigner. What do they know? I preferred my own pronunciation but never spoke it. When in Rome. 

The second key was to a gate that allowed me to climb down the steep steps to the Ganges, steep as in if you fell forward you'd be dead by the time your carcass flopped onto the landing. A shabby death, as a dear friend of mine might call it.

When I looked right, instead of left, that's when I saw Vandana. The steepness of the steps never changed in either direction but there were fewer of them to the right than to the left.

I'm not entirely sure why I climbed those steps to the right but I did. She spoke limited English but I spoke no Hindi. She was a bright young girl, self possessed and charming and with a modicum of English. "Hey mister!"

She took me left, around the corner where the steps ended and then showed me a litter of puppies. Other Indians immediately crowded round as she showed them off to me. Here's a white guy, an obvious visiter (no matter where I travel abroad I don't think of myself as a tourist. Some may find that a conceit; I think of it as a mindset). Four, or six, I can't remember. Cute as only dog or cat babies can be.

After making nice for awhile, I told Vandana that I had to be off to the Ganges. We'd rounded back around the corner and she invited me in for chai into, apparently, her family's home. I declined with all the graciousness that pigeon English and hand gestures could muster. She understood but asked if I was on WhatsApp. I confessed I was and so phone numbers were exchanged.

* * * *

I dropped off several kilos of puppy chow to her before I left Varanasi. One can only do so much, but wherever one is, one should do that much, at home or abroad. I also gave her a 500 rupee note (with my right hand, by the way, never the left). She knew at a glance what it meant and thanked me, profusely if she had had her way but I made my exit quickly. Many people live for thanks while I've always found it a personal indictment.

* * * * 

Vandana texted me via WhatsApp for awhile after I returned to America, always calling me "uncle," a term of respect for older men who are not literal family relations. I responded as best I could, given the language and age barriers. After some time, she went silent. I don't know if her family could continue to afford an internet plan or not. Food first.

* * * * 

I don't know why Vandana returned to me, why I'm only writing about her now for the first time, more than a year later. Possibly because I know I can't travel this spring (Berlin/Vienna), although I always go to India in the Fall, which is still likely to happen, so I'm not sure that's it. 

Likely it's because when people ask why I "vacation" so much, as opposed to what I do, which is travel, she's the reason.

CPAC: The Potemkin Village Of Conservative, Inc.

Viruses are lately much in the news and as if taking its cue from that, CPAC opened this week in Washington, D.C. An annual event for some years now, it has become a bloated farce of Conservative, Inc.'s attempt to survive the Trump years by fooling its too often gullible base by appearing to represent genuine conservative change. It does nothing of the sort, of course, but one has to give it credit for the sheer size of the gaslighting effort.

Previously CPAC was mostly a DC gathering for the 30 and under conservative crowd to get drunk and laid. Who could begrudge them that except MNGOPe types who'd do well to do either or both more. Then CPAC got monetized by Conservative, Inc.

Last year, Google was a major sponsor of CPAC. What more, really, is there to say? A major tech company, the most powerful tech company in the world, which consistently deplatforms conservatives and dissidents, ponies up to put on this farcical show.

This is akin to a Code Pink conference being underwritten by Lockheed Martin or Raytheon. Nothing is too stupid or contradictory for the odious lobbyist Matt Schlapp, head of the American Conservative Union, the headwaters of CPAC.

The fundamental problem with CPAC, apart from the obvious grift, is its determined insistence to avoid topics of real interest to Americans, the most important of which is immigration--both legal and illegal--and how demographic replacement could shortly make it impossible to elect a Republican president again. The corporate money behind CPAC doesn't care if America becomes a Third World hellhole.

Ann Coulter will never be more right than when she says immigration is "the" issue because immigration decides all other issues. It's irrefutable & Ilhan Omar is Exhibit A to this proposition.

CPAC today is utterly uncontroversial: socialism bad! free markets rules! Visit our vendors in the hallways to buy your tsotchkes that reinforce your Boomer mindset. "It's all so tiresome."

Nikki Haley, real name Nimrata Nikki Randhawa (see how that works?) hosted the official "Welcome Reception" according to CPAC's official agenda posted online. Did she charge $100,000, her usual speaking fee? She's a neocon as well so that's great.

This isn't to say CPAC is a complete wash. Sometimes interesting people who speak about relevant topics are not screened out. President Trump is scheduled to speak and it would be bad form not to.

Nigel Farage, Lee Smith, Andy Ngo, Saagar Enjeti, Sen. Josh Hawley, Gordon Chang, are among the quality speakers allowed by CPAC to make it appear authentic.

Pete Hegseth will speak as well (in the "FOX Nation" booth, subscribe now!) about his book, "In The Arena: Good Citizens, a Great Republic, and How One Speech Can Reinvigorate America," the paperback edition of which came out three years ago, in February, 2017. Okay. Everybody into the pool.

But the bad outweighs the good. Just days ago CPAC credentialed well known Leftist Jared Holt who engages on hit jobs on people on the Right, as well as another man who's a certified Antifa activist. Molly-Jong Fast is speaking as I write. If you don't know who these people are, that's by design. When you know, you realize that CPAC enables the enemy which, necessarily, makes them the enemy as well.

You won't see Michelle Malkin, the bravest conservative in the nation, Ann Coulter, always redeemable by her writing on immigration or even Laura Loomer (don't care what you think of her) who was thrown out of CPAC last year. What gatekeepers on the Right?

As ‪@NickJFuentes said recently: "Free speech is essential in so far that we use it to challenge the status quo. CPAC wants to control the narrative so that regular people aren’t exposed to true right wing and nationalist positions."

* * * * 

Closer to home we have our own iteration of gatekeepers and faux conservatism, The Center of the American Experiment, which I call, more accurately, the Center of the American Boomer.™ I endeared myself to it by writing honestly when Sen. Tom Cotton addressed their annual dinner, three years ago this June, by writing "Tom Cotton Red Pills The Center of the American Experiment."

I haven't said this before but I wrote that article because neither John Hinderaker, president of the "activist think tank," nor Scott Johnson wrote about the substance of Sen. Cotton's remarks. Both praised his credentials (by their insecurities ye shall know them) and how pleasant & funny he was: a good time was had by all. Pablum, perfectly in keeping with Center's mission to be impotent but liked. Don't get me started on the cowardice of Hinderaker when it comes to Kim Crockett. 

Now, by invitation only, which still costs you $75 (what grifting?) we have this upcoming:

And who isn't for fweedom? Certainly not gullible Boomers!

Charlie Kirk is a joke who makes Mark Zuckerberg look human. He's head of Turning Point, USA, the cringe astroturf group that exists to make Boomers think they're not, in real time, losing their country to the Third World. Unlike Michelle Malkin & Nick Fuentes, he's not America First. 

Candace Owens is an accomplished chameleon grifter: look up "Social Autopsy," her stillborn website designed to dox people who anonymously engage in wrong think. Before realizing where the money was, she trashed tea party patriots specifically and Republicans generally. This is her third, five figure, appearance at the Center of the American Boomer.™ She's peddled the "Blexit" farce, where large number of blacks will vote for Trump. This wasn't proven by the results from 2018 but no matter. She also married a white dude, something sure to go down well in the hood. Only Minnesota Boomers would fail to recognize a fraud of this stature. 

David Prager, son on Dennis, is also speaking to the blue rinse haired crowd that makes up this "VIP event by invitation only $75" event. He's the son of Dennis. Last year the Los Angeles Times reported that "Tax filings show $237,500 went to his [Dennis] consulting firm. An additional $155,700 went to Prager’s son for help with fundraising." Cool, cool. 

The outlier in this group is David Horowitz who is a stronger conservative than any of his co-attendees. "Fight fire with fire" is his mantra, something necessary, needed and true to our times. 

He's a wartime conservative; the rest peacetime. 

Buy their books, pay the entrance fee. Pretend you're saving America. 

Attend CPAC or believe they speak for you.

Criminals Of Color & Minnesota Media Silence

White people aren't responsible for the recent crime wave washing over the Twin Cities. If you have a short attention span you can stop reading now, that's the take away.

But you wouldn't know it from local reporting. While race is injected into every story, especially when it's not relevant, local media falls oddly silent about it when it comes to murder, rape, robbery and assault. Why is that?

Because it doesn't fit in with their narrative that most of what is wrong with Minnesota and the country is the fault of white people. In fact, local media (I follow too many of these people on Twitter) have an agenda to promote minorities, especially illegal immigrants or failed forced migrants like Somalis, all of which commit shocking levels of crimes far exceeding whites.

This isn't to say that whites don't commit crime, manifestly they do, they just don't commit them in anything close to the same numbers (per capita) as blacks, hispanics and other minorities. You won't see this reported in the media because they have a relentless anti-white narrative to promote. They're allergic to the truth.

* * * *

Herewith, some rarely reported truths:

1. Race is a better predictor of crime than poverty. 
2. The percentage of Blacks and Hispanics in an area, not poverty, is the best predictor of crime.
3. Half of hate crimes are Blacks and Hispanics attacking each other.

4. 90% of gang members are non-White.

5. Black men are over a hundred times more likely to rape a White woman than vice versa.

6. 90% of interracial violence between blacks and Whites is committed by Blacks.

7. Blacks are just 13% of the American population but have committed half of all murders for the last 30 years.

8. In just two years, more blacks were killed by other blacks than died from 80 years of lynching.

9. Areas with more Black people have higher rates of crime.

10. Young Black men kill 14 times more often than young White men.

11. 93% of Black men who are murdered are killed by other Black men.

12. Police hesitate longer to shoot Black suspects than White suspects.

And so on and so on. The reality of life is far different from what you will see represented or, more often, hidden from you by the media, by the Cathedral. For more eye opening data about crime, race, Islam, diversity and gender, please peruse The Library of Hate.  It's facetiously called that because we live in a time where speaking the truth about any of these topics is said by the Cathedral to constitute hate.

* * * *

One tiresome tactic of local media is to report group violence without any racial identification. You can take it to the bank that when they do this, white people aren't implicated because if they were, they would be. This reporting by omission is now standard and the public isn't stupid: they know what's going on.

Recently two area hospitals had to be placed on lock down because of out of control groups that had assembled after a shooting victim had been transported there. The usually hyper race conscious media couldn't bring themselves to describe what everyone knew: those groups were blacks, not the white nationalists that exist in the fevered minds of liberal media.

Not long ago a 75 year old Muslim man was killed in public by a black man. Local media were in a bind: how to blame white people for this horrific act? In the end they couldn't and they focused on the grieving family members in their coverage.

No stories were run about how this kind of hatred needed to be exterminated from the black community, no exhortations from Minneapolis Mayor Frey that hate has no home here, that the black community was somehow complicit in this violent crime.

Had the murder suspect been white all of these stories and narratives would have flooded the zone. The interesting thing is: we all know it. I've recently taken to comparing our current civil society to a kitchen in the age of the USSR. We all whisper and share the truth over our tables, knowing that our media are complicit in generating oceans of lies daily. Pravda had nothing over American media.

To publicly speak the truth is to invite personal & professional destruction.

The crime rate of Somalis in Minnesota is perhaps the most forbidden topic in local media, second only to the amount of welfare they consume.

* * * * 

Pictured above is the booking photo of Demetrius Wynne who recently turned 19 and was arrested for the murder of Susan Spiller five years ago when he was a mere 14 years old. Her murder was so horrific that the only description given by authorities at the time was "complex homicidal violence." None of us had heard that term before. 

Turns out that it meant Spiller "had been beaten, strangled and stabbed five times." Feel free, should you have a strong stomach, to read the seven page criminal complaint here. 

It was reported that prior to her death Spiller spoke at a community gathering and feared retaliation for complaining about noise. Objecting to those "participating in their own lives" proved a death sentence for Susan or so it would seem. Literally, her killer lived next door. No motive per se has yet been given by authorities for her slaughter.

Can white people ever be the victim of hate crimes? Apparently not in the Twin Cities.

Will there ever be a Netflix original content show "Dear Black People" like there is two seasons of "Dear White People?" Why is that? Who is in control of such narratives?

* * * * 

Here's the thing though: am I not supposed to care about minorities killing each other like clockwork? Ignore the weekend body count of dead and wounded from Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore and St. Louis because their skin color is different than mine? These people are far more my fellow Americans than Islamofascists like Ilhan Omar. And yet the Cathedral demands silence.

There's a cold civil war criminal here and it's not me.

* * * * 

Crime knows no race, color or creed. It is the fact, however, that certain races, colors and creeds are more intimately familiar with it than others. Keith Ellison and local media like to pretend that white nationalists are a clear and present danger when in fact they are nothing of the kind. Ellison's most recent jihad is to generate more "hate crime" reports and is said to want to propose legislation to deal with that manufactured increase.

Students commit the most fake hate crimes, hate hoaxes, followed by Muslims. There's some overlap there. Media cover the initial (fake) reports but not often enough the fakeness of them when such is revealed.

In reality Ellison's ultimate goal is to criminalize speech he and the Regressive Left doesn't like. "Islam is right about women." The threats to our freedoms uniformly come from them.

Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder once claimed that Americans were cowards when it came to race. They're not, of course, just brow beaten into not speaking the truth about race and, for example, crime. But as Leonard Cohen once sang "Everybody Knows."

Even if they can't afford to admit it in public. But until we do, nothing will get better. 

Which, upon reflection, may be the goal of the cultural Marxists.

"The worse, the better."  — Lenin

The "Groyper Wars" Against Turning Point, USA: A Primer For Minnesotans

Apparently I'm destined to explain for the moment a number of interesting cultural and political developments on the Right that largely passes by the insular political and cultural world of Minnesota. It's not just that Minnesota media are hard left and not too bright, although that does go a long way. Mostly, I think, it's the anesthetizing incuriosity of Minnesotans, especially among Republicans. As long as they can get to work without too much congestion, have satisfactory bowel movements and move on to burgers and craft beers, all is right. Oh, don't forget sports ball of any kind, including the retarded and ghey "sport" of soccer. "Scarves up!" is their mantra. How effete, how soy.

If buglife had a state, it would be Minnesota.

* * * * 

Turning Point, USA is an AstroTurf organization that pretends to be a grassroots group representing conservative college students. In actuality, it's a top down, donor driven Potemkin village, with a board of directors that looks more like a retirement village in Naples, Florida than any college campus.

Charlie Kirk, its head, was fiercely Never Trump even after the Emperor got the nomination and went on to become the President. He's scrubbed all of those sentiments as best he could from social media but the internet is forever. Like Mark Levin, hate to break it to you.

In this he resembles the fraud Candace Owens who's twice spoken, for a five figure fee, at the Center of the American Experiment. Alpha News routinely churns out poorly written Boomer bait (socialism is bad!) by a perky woman who is a Turning Point USA "brand ambassador," which is snapped up by Boomers who refuse to understand the meme "If you only knew how bad things really are."

One such young person who does know is Nick Fuentes and he took the fight to the latest incarnation of Conservative, Inc., which exists to keep people from obtaining that very same awareness. Ashley St. Clair, another cheesy "brand ambassador," was fired and depersoned by Turning Point simply for appearing in a photo with him. But TPUSA stands for free speech. Right.

You should follow him at @NickJFuentes and subscribe to his YouTube channel America First here.

Kirk recently went on a nationwide "Culture War" on various campuses that dealt in anything but culture. Turning Point is a tool of the ruling class, the Uniparty, the entrenched interests that have done nothing for the American people but make their lives worse. It was sabotaged spectacularly & hilariously by Fuentes and his army of groypers. Wat mean?

Groypers are an iteration of the the Pepe meme, which the Left tried mightily to characterize as some sort of white supremacist neo-Nazi image but failed spectacularly. No less than the Hong Kong freedom fighters adopted Pepe because they understood the true power of the meme, not the gloss attempted to be put upon it by the Cathedral.

Groypers are fat frogs, some say toads, whose signature feature is their fingers interlaced under their chin. That's it Boomers; it's a pose. They became associated with Fuentes because many of the Twitter accounts who supported him had Groyper-type avatars in their handles. See? It isn't that hard to understand The Current Year. I routinely follow men and women a third my age on Twitter. If you want to know the future of the Right, they are it.

* * * * 

Young men who asked the hard questions, the tough questions, of Charlie Kirk and his fake conservative minstrel show of "Culture War" won the war and most of the battles. Kirk peddles a fake conservative narrative of accommodation to the Left where we win by losing. He represents the kind of "conservative" activism that lets drag queens talk about sodomy to our young children in public libraries. 

Kirk pretends to hate identity politics when a white person thinks his culture has merit all the while holding gatherings celebrating blacks, hispanics and females. Fuentes has no problem with that but wonders why white people aren't accorded the same treatment. After all, majority white countries are being flooded by those from countries whose people could never have founded and built the United States. They're only here to cash in on our success and we're punished if we notice.

Other targets besides the eunuch Kirk are Ben Shapiro (who called for the ethnic cleansing of Israel but you're the anti-semite if you bring that up!) and Dan Crenshaw. This is by no means an exhaustive list. 

One young man, a rosary wrapped around one of his hands, became something of a Groyper superstar when he asked Kirk, who beside him was Rob Smith, a black gay dude who served in the military, how promoting anal intercourse helped conservatives win the culture war. The point wasn't to bash gays; nobody cares who does what with whom as long as you leave children and animals out of it. Even then we seem to be losing that battle.

Smith himself was a Never Trumper and has transformed himself into a mouthpiece for the Right. The grifters always go to where the money is to be had.

The groyper kids are having none of it. God bless them, praise Kek.

* * * *

Fuentes was fiercely attacked, maliciously maligned, by the moneyed interests on the Right. Called an anti-semite, a white supremacist and generally slandered, he is none of those things. As he himself noted, he got fairer treatment from the Left press than the Right. This is, by now, to be expected.

To the contrary, he understands that America is, apparently, set on an irreversible path of multiculturalism and is asking the hard & honest questions that Boomers and their marionettes like Turning Point refuse to continence. He's also Christian, having the temerity to ask how a country founded by Christians can survive such a demographic suicide. 

That's the key: demographic replacement is real but still denied by these types of groups even while they celebrate others' ethnic identity, just not white peoples'. Legal immigration, not illegal, is the dagger to the heart of traditional America. At the rate of one million per year, these people vote democrat over republican by something like 80/20. You'll be punished if you notice. 

I'd put it this way: how did the greatest nation on earth, founded, created and built by white British and Dutch protestants, put itself in a position to be overrun by people from the Third World who demonstrably can't build for themselves anything similar? Why is our immigration system rigged to let in relatives of Ilhan Omar, she who hates us, hates white people in particular (jealousy) instead of people who won't commit crimes, won't go on welfare and will assimilate to share our Western Christian values? 

* * * *

Enter the heroine.

Michelle Malkin stood up for Fuentes, putting paid to the whores of Turning Point, USA and so many other grifting organizations that exist to fleece the none too bright Boomer base. Socialism is bad! This very weekend Charlie Kirk is being paid to appear at David Horowitz's "Restoration Weekend." Somewhere, along with me, Diana West is laughing. 

Malkin said at UCLA last week:

"Tonight, my remarks are directed at the young men and women of this country who identify as America First conservatives. How many proud Americans standing up for American freedom and sovereignty do we have in the room?

I know what it’s like to be in your shoes, feeling marginalized on a crazy college campus for standing up for your pro-life, pro-gun, pro-free speech, pro-Western values and fighting for your country. I also have two teenagers who have been through experiences like you have, sitting in classrooms where abject stupidity and emotionalism have replaced logic, reason, and the pursuit of truth.

That is why I will not be using my platform and my position to insult you, marginalize you, and shout you down. Just a couple of days ago here on this very campus, former Fox News hostess Kimberly Guilfoyle sneered that young conservative men in MAGA hats asking inconvenient questions were rude losers who could only get dates online and who were embarrassing their parents.

Another YAF speaker, Ben Shapiro, repeatedly denigrated an entire movement of young men who watch a YouTuber named Nick Fuentes and are seeking answers to tough questions about where America is headed as masturbating losers in their basements who share memes. As a mom with brilliant right-thinking kids who, yes, live in my basement, and, yes, share memes, I found these obsessive references to young people’s dating lives and habits by prominent conservative media personalities much older than their targets to be tellingly defensive and touchy. Also: creepy.

Here’s my message to the new generation of America Firsters exposing the big lies of the anti-American open borders establishment and its controlled opposition operatives: If I was your mom, I’d be proud as hell.

I want you to know that you are not alone. It’s important for you to know that not everyone who belongs to generations older than you has sat idly by while America rotted from the inside. Not all Gen Xers and Boomers are mindlessly stupefied by the bread and circuses entertainment dished out by so-called conservative media. Not all of us have occupied ourselves solely with “owning libs” and reciting clunky MAGA rap anthems while America crumbles."

And there you have it, Minnesota, another primer. My last was about Bronze Age Pervert and his seminal book "Bronze Age Mindset." I can only do so much and I'm happy to do so. 

The rest is up to you.

Bronze Age Pervert: A Primer For Minnesotans

Interesting cultural and intellectual developments usually pass Minnesota by. You could even say the more interesting the less likely they are to penetrate what passes for the political and cultural elites here. I used to think it was just xenophobia but this obdurateness is something more, something willful. I've long since stopped being curious about the antecedents of this mediocrity on steroids: it just is, like winter.

It was only because I brought Bronze Age Pervert (BAP), who tweets as @BronzeAgeMantis (this is your cue to follow him) to the attention of my friend, the Right Honourable Roger Chamberlain, that local media first learned of BAP and were, naturally for them, flummoxed. I haven't lived in all 50 states but something tells me our local media are among the laziest of them. Certainly their work product wouldn't disabuse you of that notion.

In the cringe but aptly named political newsletter "Hot Dish," J Patrick Cooligan deigned to take notice of a retweet by Chamberlain (found by him on my TL) and wondered "Wat mean?" Only Cooligan wouldn't know the nomenclature of BAP to appreciate the "Wat mean?" But that's what he did, even if he didn't know it. And he didn't.

So what does a lazy member of the lazy Minnesota media do? Turn to the discredited house organ of neoliberalism, Politico, to understand this strange new phenomenon, that somehow pierced the thick membrane of Minnesota isolationism, for an explanation. The result was enough to make a cat laugh.

It was then that I knew I had to perform yet another uncompensated public service task (this sets me apart from all the MNGOPe grifters, of which there are legion) and explain to people too often entranced by burgers and craft beers, sports ball, the weather, the opening of yet another buglife apartment complex and the generally quotidian that makes modern life all but slow motion suicide, who is Bronze Age Pervert. Let's begin.

BAM or Bronze Age Mindset

By now, Bronze Age Pervert is inseparable from his signature book, Bronze Age Mindset. You should buy it. BAP is anonymous. You may have noticed that the Cathedral is currently waging war on people who remain anonymous online, all in the interests of "transparency" and "accountability." Accountable to whom? Transparent to whom? This is but a thinly veiled attempt to squash dissenting narratives, those that challenge the usual neoliberal orthodoxes.

BAP's Twitter account is littered with pictures of gorgeous landscapes and equally gorgeous young, buff men, resulting in the deadly, albeit hilarious, hashtag #ShowPhysiq or similar iterations, deployed most effectively against fat aging Boomers. These are the kind of tweets that would make Democrat Senate member Scott Dibble want to masturbate or put in a butt plug with an anonymous stranger on WhatsApp and then claim victim status when his degeneracy was made public. The usual suspects rallied to his defense. They always do. Weimerica. 

Bronze Age Pervert is the acid rain that washes away this defilement of straight male friendship and camaraderie, that celebrates the masculine without the homoeroticism. Look for the dominant culture to get him wrong because of its own deformities and celebrated pathologies.

Same sex marriage is a joke, like Caitlyn Jenner and "transgender" claimants: neither are what they insist to be. And we all know it. Most of us are bludgeoned into a silent acquiesce. Not me.

"Still, it moves."

BAM Breaks Through

There can be no doubt that we're talking about BAM because Michael Anton, he of the "Flight 93 Election" article, decided to review the book in The Claremont Review of Books. This was seminal. One could hardly believe it and, if they'd been following BAP previously, were rightly astonished. This article is the first of two you have to read if you want to be up to speed. 

What caught the observant eye was that Anton had been given the book by Curtis Yarvin, who pens under the name Moldbug and from which the concept of the Cathedral originated, at a dinner party. It probably won't mean much to the republican lobbyists here, by definition not a bright lot, but Anton having dinner with Moldbug? That alone was something in itself. 

Anton, having first tried to read BAM and stopped, was encouraged to try again by his former White House colleague Darren Beattie and did. His resulting review has set everything in motion, including this column and the ignorance and deliberate misrepresentation by our lazy media. 

Neti, Neti: Not This, Not That

Neti, neti is the classical Hindu definition of God: not this, not that. So too it can be said of "Bronze Age Mindset."

I don't think the book is a Rorschach test but I suppose in some ways it could be taken as such, especially by Boomers who don't understand the justified resentment of them, bordering on hatred, of the under 30 set. I do understand because I follow closely those under thirty on social media, primarily Twitter; it isn't difficult if your mind isn't ossified. I saw the term "apostate Boomer" applied on Twitter to Steve Sailer and thought "This will do."

BAP responded to Anton in due course at The American Mind with a succinct, deadly and accurately titled piece "America's Delusional Elite Is Done." This is the second article you have to read if you want a basic grasp on what is currently roiling the intellectual Right.

I think BAP has the better argument here but I'm at pains to praise Anton for having the courage to review BAM and try to come to terms with what it represents, which, fundamentally, is almost everything Boomers and their corrupt, grifting "Conservative, Inc." has peddled to the credulous and the weak as authentic right wing politics.

If the Biblical admonishment that "by their fruits ye shall know them," means anything, then a quick peak in our public libraries showcasing drag queens reading state sponsored sodomy tales to our youngest children tells us everything we need to know.

If you want a cheat sheet to the action, I don't think I'm doing violence to either side's argument when I put it this way: Anton acknowledges the critique (how could he not?) but falls back to a defensive counter-argument of "what will you build in its place?" In the final analysis this simply won't do because the conservative status quo has preserved nothing, allowed much to be destroyed [press esc to go back] and offers no plausible way forward to triumph.

Managing the decline and simpering acquiescence to cultural decay and collapse is really, once the high minded Boomer language is stripped away, all that is offered.

BAP essentially laughs at this posturing born out of intellectual & cultural poverty, out of a desperate necessity and throws the present back in the face of those who fail to see how much has already been lost. "If you only knew how bad things really are." That's a meme, Boomers.

Here is a crucial passage from BAP's response to Anton that I think wins the argument:

"The left completely abandoned Americanism in the 1960's; at this point they've also abandoned biological reality. Vitalism is all that is left against their demented biological Leninism. Encouraging health, normality, and physical nobility against their celebration of deformity, obesity, and sexual catamitism must be one of the basic functions of conservatism in our time. It is one of the reasons my message is powerful among many with the left's gospel of wretchedness: what is your plan to take that on?"

Anton, of course, has no plan, in fact you might say he didn't actually realize the problem before BAP and he's no slouch.

If you're a Minnesota republican Boomer who thinks the fraudulent Turning Point USA, and like minded grifter groups, are the berries, if you still don't get the point of the passage quoted above, search for images of Aisha Gomez and Jay Xiong. 

Then, if you're still clueless, I'm afraid the best that you can hope for is not being smothered to death in your nursing home staffed by people who look like them. 

Extra Credit

Anton responded to BAP's response, called a sur reply (also spelled surreply and sur-reply. Aren't you here to learn?) Unfortunately, his title gives the cringe game away: "Which way, Jester Man?" When name calling is in the title, you know they're out of arguments. 

The editors of The American Mind had the good sense and courage to run "Conservatism In The Bronze Age." I recommend you take a look at it and click on the link of the various essays there that might interest you. 

I thought Second City Bureaucrat, @CityBureaucrat on Twitter, had the best reply and you get the sense of this from his title: "Why Not Actually Engage With Bronze Age Mindset?" The subtitle leaves no doubt: "Ideologues seem incapable of doing so without resorting to name-calling."

Bronze Age Mindset has said he's replying to Anton in due course, as of this writing yet published. 

There you are, Minnesota, roughly up to speed. 

Wat Mean?

This column is only a primer, not a complete or thorough exegesis of the Bronze Age Pervert phenomenon. That it exists shows, I think, how uninteresting politics have become in Minnesota, a feature not a bug. More than three years ago I wrote "Do Minnesota Republicans Believe In Anything?" Then, as now, I think the answer remains the same: not much really, paychecks mostly, chair rearrangement on the decks of the Titanic, arrested high school egos vying for prominence on social media. "It's all so tiresome." Another meme, Boomers. Wake up.

The indictment that Bronze Age Pervert brings to the desiccated Conservative, Inc. applies with even more force to the small potatoes of Minnesota republican politics. 

Does anyone realistically think they'll win another statewide election in the foreseeable future? Not if they're honest or, for many of the grifters, sober. 

So what the great Joe Sobran said of Conservative, Inc., now manifested by the pathetic, lobbyist run CPAC, or Boomer donors making younger types dance to the tune of nationalist self-destruction, Turning Point, USA or a local "activist think tank" that throws a courageous (read honest) member overboard, can well be said here:

"It was all a game, or a way of making a living."

And I haven't even talked about no nut November.

Desperate Measures: City Pages Repackages Minnesota CAIR's Jihad Against Its Critics

I had an odd sense of déjà vu last week when, apropos of nothing, City Pages ran a story with the breathless headline "How Minnesota Republican Operatives Are Sowing Distrust of Minnesota Muslims." I'd seen this all before, specifically last year when CAIR Minnesota issued its list of "haters." I made the grade, thank you, although I was weirdly called in the conclusion "an interchangeable propagandist." I don't think so: my writing style and analysis is hardly interchangeable.

I'm still holding out for certified hater status from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) but that fraudulent group has been having some karma induced troubles of late.

Mostly, I was outraged at being labeled a "republican operative." Sorry Logan Carrol, the author of the piece (a name so WASP I'm blinded just by typing it), the last thing that I am is a republican operative: I'm a conservative, having long ago run from the cuck label of republican.

Republican operatives can be seen on "Almanac" or "At Issue." Or heard on podcasts along with members in good standing of the Regressive Left because they want to be liked. Or making nice with our shockingly mediocre media on Twitter. Or maneuvering for paid positions on campaigns that undoubtedly will lose, paycheck in the interim being all. "Same as it ever was."

As I've written before, once you understand high school, you understand Minnesota republican politics.

Before examining certain particular hilarities in the article, I have to give Carrol some credit: it wasn't completely awful writing. Then again, I'm not a regular reader of City Pages, the free tabloid of the uneducated, perpetually outraged Left in the Twin Cities. I'm old enough to remember when I praised one of its former writers, Aaron Rupar, who's since gone on to a sort of fame at national outlets (sorry about the demise of Think Progress, Aaron, although it would take a heart of stone not to laugh). I thought he had good instincts despite his politics being the opposite of mine. Carrol's article was, of course, lazy, reductive and came with a two by four agenda. Then again, the same can be said of all Minnesota media, no matter the topic.

* * * * 

First, I write about Islam, only rarely an individual Mohammedan. I find the distinction crucial, others do not. But I'm not others and don't wish to become them. The forced mass migration of Islam into Europe holds lessons for those of us in Minnesota and America who correctly refuse to sit passively by while some wish for the same fate. Search for "Rotherham" (use Duck Duck Go). The City Pages article, like the CAIR Minnesota "haters" list, is designed to silence criticism of Islam, seeks to cow a populace under threat of being called names into acquiescence for Rotherhams here. No.

Next, Carrol writes: “You can’t object when your children are bullied by feral Somali youth,” declared Alpha News in a story last September titled, “The St. Cloud Times Shills for Refugee Resettlement.” No it wasn't "Alpha News," Logan, it was me! Come on, you're not even trying. 

I wrote for Alpha News for approximately 18 months, quitting by email last December (my editor in chief followed two weeks later) when I was in Varanasi, India, after which I walked along the Ganges in the early morning light, smoking and looking for my favorite chai walla, down from the burning ghats where corpses are cremated in the open. I'm in negotiations with Netflix for the rights to the story at this very moment. 

The point I'm making is that I had the sole opinion column at Alpha News during my tenure and don't appreciate this misattribution of my writing. How can I make the SPLC's hater list that way?

The repackaged hit piece moved on to the Center of the American Experiment, or, as I call it, far more accurately I think, the Center of the American Boomer. Carrol refers to it as "Minnesota's premier conservative think tank," which is akin to saying some burger & craft beer joint is Minnesota's premiere restaurant. Both are true, in that peculiar Minnesota sense. 

In the story there's a large picture of John Hinderaker, the current president of the Center, who constantly refers to it as "my" conservative think tank.  The last time any media drew attention to the Center he threw a distinguished member of the staff overboard. The Cathedral is never more powerful when its object are types like him. 

We're in a cold civil war but somehow the Center has either failed to notice it or is too cowardly to fight it. Either way spells uselessness, David French conservatives (French Davidians per @PollySpin) when we need Sohrab Amari conservatives. You'll have to look up that last reference on your own.

Not to be entirely unfair to readers, Amari says Conservative, Inc. has conserved nothing, drag queens reading to our children in public libraries being the proof. French says, muh principles are worth hanging onto, even as America as founded is "fundamentally transformed" by Third World immigrants who have nothing to offer us but votes for Democrats as well as crime, welfare dependency if not fraud and low IQ's. 

If you're looking for courage and leadership on the most pressing issues of our times, the Center isn't for you. If, rather, you prefer to be a blue rinse hair audience member looking for the next thumb to suck, the Center of the American Experiment is home, Boomer. Please give generously, they have payroll to make, even without Kim.

* * * * 

"It was all a game, or a way of making a living." Joe Sobran on Conservative, Inc. 

* * * * 

The story plods on with the usual tired tropes generated by the Cathedral. I could have written it, so predictable is its narrative arc. But because it mentions me again, I'm forced, post modern-like, to deal with the text. 

Carrol drags me for speculating that the attack on the terrorist mosque Dar Al Farooq in Bloomington was a hoax. Given that Muslims are the second greatest generator of hoax "hate" crimes (only behind students) it was entirely reasonable given that a substantial amount of time had elapsed since the attack with no arrests. It proved not to be true but that comes with speculation. Hello Russia hoax?

He also says I claimed victim status. To anyone who knows me or who reads me or who has heard me speak, that's enough to make a cat laugh. I stole that from Christopher Hitchens: I miss him still.

Not surprisingly, Carrol doesn't mention my reporting (I was an opinion columnist but more than once made hard news in the course of it) on one of the imams of the terrorist mosque. "Waleed Idris al-Maneesey (also spelled Meneese) is the radical lmam who heads up Dar Al-Farooq" I wrote in September of 2017. 

I went on to note: "Al-Maneesey has said that no Muslim in a non-sharia ruled country should be a judge as only Allah can make law. Just last November he preached Muslims had an obligation to kill and destroy the Jews. Both of those sentiments strike me as decidedly un-Minnesotan but what do I know?"

The reaction from local media, including City Pages, to the news I broke? Nothing, as if to prove the title of my column "The Silencing Jihad." 

Two years later, it continues. Cue the "it's all so tiresome" memes.

* * * * 

I wrote "The Islamization of Minnesota Media" for the Center for Security Policy not quite a year ago. The Islamist propaganda Minnesotans face daily is discussed and explained there. Logan, take a look.

* * * * 

Local media have been captured by CAIR and show ample signs of the Stockholm Syndrome. Most astute observers of both media and local Islamists have known this for some time. That City Pages had to gin up a warmed over version of what Minnesota CAIR put out last year suggests to me that local Islamists are not happy with the results thus far. White pill, fam.

I both apologize for and tire of quoting myself but why reinvent the wheel? How I ended my "The Silencing Jihad" column two years ago applies with equal, if not more, force today:

"Dar Al-Farooq is a radical Islamist mosque but will never be covered as such. Brave Muslim reformers like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Irshad Manji, Maajid Nawaz, Tarek Fatah and Raheel Raza will never be given coverage by them. To do so, as I’ve previously written, is to explode the construct that CAIR and MAS speak for all Muslims. They don’t.

The attacks by [Sally Jo] Sorensen, [Wilhelm] Davis and MPR are designed to silence us, to exact a cost for the simple act of paying attention. Someone once said that political correctness is a war on noticing.

That’s why it’s up to us not to remain silent. Silence is their goal, their current jihad. “Silence is death,” as was said in another context. But we won’t stay silent. And if the forces of the Regressive Left don’t like it, they can find another state."

Keith Ellison Gaslights Rural Minnesota

Recently, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison ventured into the rural parts of Minnesota in order to set people there straight about how the forced importation of uneducated, low skilled, unassimilable, refugees make their lives better and how dissent from this diktat is "hateful."

Bad message, bad messenger, but that's part & parcel of any gaslighting effort.

This attack, for that is what it is, on rural Minnesota comes close on the heels of the New York Times hit job, about which I wrote immediately below.

Stephen Montemayor, the Star Tribune's go to reporter for dhimmi coverage, wrote a story that couldn't be distinguished from a press release from the Ismaofascist AG. Or Islamofascist Ilhan Omar. Or Islmofascist CAIR.

He's at their service and it shows. Media today are propaganda organs for the Left and should not be taken seriously with respect to that upon which they claim to report.

* * * * 

Still, it's worth following Montemayor's "reporting," if no other reason than to call it out for his relentless service on behalf of The Cathedral. He starts with an unverified report of a "hate crime" and quickly hits his stride bolstering Minnesota's Attorney General's jihad on Wrong Think. Montemayor makes the wholly unsupported allegation that there is "a rising number of episodes of intolerance against immigrants and minorities" in rural Minnesota.

It's always good to remember that when our dishonest media say "hate crimes" are increasing, they almost always refer to "reports" of such being made to the FBI. What they don't tell their readers is that those reports are simply collected; they are not, in fact, verified or found to have actually happened. Feel free to report your own "hate crime" today: there's no downside because no one will bother checking up on you. Some groups know this very well. CAIR, for example.

As anticipated, the Star Tribune reporter cites the New York Times hit piece that I wrote about. Once you figure out The Cathedral, many things are predictable. These stories are coordinated, never spontaneous and exist to advance a false narrative.

It's cute the media don't realize we see them.

Ellison is quoted toward the end of this tedious piece of agitprop as saying "What's clear is these people are organizing. They're here in Minnesota and they are violent and they're willing to stab and hurt people while hiding behind the First Amendment."

Was he talking about Somalis at St. Cloud's Crossroads Mall? Those stabbings? Or was he referring to the straight up violent Antifa for which he has shown much fondness?

And "hiding behind the First Amendment?" Here he gives his game away, which is suppression of speech, censorship. The First Amendment never protects violence and never has. So what does he mean? He means he wants to silence speech with which he doesn't agree: yours.

Montemayor has Ellison justifying his repression tour of rural Minnesota by referencing the Christchurch, New Zealand mosque shooting that killed 51 people. Please.

Would he justify policing the Muslim community for the slaughter, less than a month later, of more than 100 Nigerian Christians at the hands of Muslims? No, of course not; you see very well how this gaslighting works.

In fact, if we in Minnesota were to pay equal minded attention to what's going on in the world, we'd be protecting Christians and Jews who are murdered daily by adherents of the religion of peace. “Christians living in a Muslim country are ‘143 times more likely’ to be killed by a Muslim than vice versa,” reported the Voice of Europe on March 18th of this year.

When you have mass Muslim migration, like that which has happened in France, Robert Spencer informs us "with 66 dead a year on average, Frenchmen are exactly ten times more likely to be murdered by a Muslim than a Muslim being killed by a non-Muslim terrorist anywhere in the Western world." Not just in France mind you, anywhere in the Western world.

Who's really at risk of harm and from whom? The answer to that question is the last thing Minnesota media will answer.

* * * * 

Ellison deleted the tweet you see pictured at the top of this column. So far, I've not seen Stephen Montemayor report this fact, let alone ask the Attorney General about it. The same goes for the rest of Minnesota media. 

Here's a man who endorses the violence of Antifa, or at a bare minimum, has never once condemned it, dispatching himself to rural Minnesota to lecture others about their purportedly violent tendencies. That which they themselves are guilty of will be projected onto others. 

The sanctimonious editorial board of the Star Tribune gives them cover. That board consists of a handful of unremarkable, mediocre people on the Regressive Left. They have no moral authority. 

In addition to the support of Antifa, our gaslighting Attorney General apparently didn't spend much time in the rural areas of the state because shortly after this PR stunt he was seen warmly embracing the rancid, anti semitic, anti white, terrorist loving Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn of the United Kingdom. In a way, I was impressed with the sheer brazenness of Ellison, which brazenness comes from knowing he'll never be held to account by Minnesota media. Where he stops and the other starts is difficult to discern. 

* * * * 

Muslims are more likely to report fake hate crimes than any other group in America except college students and even then, there can be some overlap, according to investigative reporter Andy Ngo. Yes, that Andy Ngo who was recently beaten up by Portland Antifa and sent to the hospital with a brain bleed. 

Any condemnation from local media about a reporter being violently attacked and injured? Anything from Keith Ellison? Anything from those preening moralists at the Star Tribune editorial board? To ask the questions is to have your answers. 

Andrew Yang, and eventually Joe Biden, to their credit, did condemn the attack on Ngo. I no longer ask the limp dick question "But what if conservative affiliated groups had done the same thing? What would the media be saying?" 

If I wanted to engage in an exercise of cringe uselessness I'd read "The Federalist" or attend yet another of that grifter Candace Owens' appearance at the Center of the American Experiment. This is one Boomer who doesn't respond to Boomer bait, who recognizes it for the problem that it is: keeping them asleep, pacified, optimistic when there is no cause. 

Joe Sobran once said of the conservative movement “It was all a game, or a way of making a living.” Even in the Age of Trump, this remains true. 

It is worth noting, however, that Peter Beinert, on July 4th no less, wrote that there was almost no support on the Left for Antifa so why do conservatives insist there is? Yet Jeffrey Goldberg, his editor at "The Atlantic" tweeted a comparison of Antifa to the American troops landing on the beaches of Normandy. Yes, it's a mystery how Antifa has been given a pass. 

Did local media republish the photo of Keith Ellison at the 2018 Minnesota State Fair with Portland Antifa leader Luis Enrique Marquez? Of course not but thanks to Big League Politics you can see it for yourself.

These things happen, are allowed to happen if not promoted outright, because of The Cathedral. I may be banging on about this concept for awhile but only because I think it affords Minnesotans an exceptional understanding as to much of what is happening around them. To know how to best respond, one has to best understand what is going on. The Cathedral gets us most of the way there. 

And what is really happening?

Pat Buchanan recently put it succinctly: “In half a lifetime, many Americans have seen their God dethroned, their heroes defiled, their culture polluted, their values assaulted, their country invaded, and themselves demonized as extremists and bigots for holding on to beliefs Americans have held for generations.”

Instead of robust support for those Americans, we get moral cretins like Ilhan Omar who hates the country that gave her refuge, whose own native country in a hundred years couldn't achieve a quarter of what America has, even as we're expected to celebrate Somali straw huts on Lake Street or in some pathetic Somali "museum." We get Islamofascists like Keith Ellison, who the dumbest republicans in the nation couldn't defeat when he ran for Attorney General, but who pretends to moral virtue while supporting Antifa and meeting with Jeremy Corbyn. 

Rural Minnesotans in particular understand the stakes and refuse to be cowed by a far left Attorney General and his handmaidens in the press. They refuse to let another Rotherham happen in their midsts because Rotherham happened by degrees. They insist on stopping those degrees every step of the way. And there is no other way, despite the condescension or the all out attacks on them. 

Far more than the ersatz sophisticated "conservatives" I know in the Twin Cities, most of whom are good only for lining up for (yet another) paycheck on a (yet another) sure to fail campaign, or who cashed out to become lobbyists while pretending to make a difference, or who suck up to the Left and local media for fear they'll be called names, rural Minnesotans have the courage that comes from knowing they are right.

Somalis, Minnesota & The Cathedral

Last Thursday the New York Times, an essential element of the Cathedral (defined and explained in my post immediately below), published a story designed to silence Minnesotans from voicing legitimate concerns about the forced importation of Somalis into this state. The only officially approved narrative on this topic is one of unalloyed joy and gratitude despite, on balance and by every objective measure, being an ongoing, quite expensive, socially corrosive, failure.

Somalis in Minnesota do very little to adjust and assimilate into America. They are encouraged by the Regressive Left, here and nationally, aided by the Cathedral, not to do so. Instead, quite perversely, Minnesotans are demanded to do all the adjusting. This is exactly backwards but is precisely our current circumstances.

The New York Times story--one could predict its content and narrative arc without reading it--is designed to assist local efforts in Minnesota to silence objections and dissent. The mere act of noticing is not allowed. "Political correctness is a war on noticing," Steve Sailer once wrote.

Reduced to its essentials, the storyline posits that backwards, racist, xenophobic (a word used in the title) Minnesotans are the scum of the earth, while portraying Somalis as helpless victims, here only to benefit us, instead of to take from us, which is the more accurate reality. That nonsense about diversity making us stronger again. It doesn't, of course, but saying so will soon be a capital offense.

* * * * 

Before examining the hit job of a story, I want to recall what I wrote almost two years ago to the day when Sen. Tom Cotton was the featured speaker at the annual dinner of the Center of the American Experiment. Quite literally, I was the only one present who actually conveyed in writing what the Senator said. The Cathedral works by intimidation, among other methods, and the reaction to the New York Times story is revealing proof of it.

Here's what I wrote for Alpha News about the substance of Sen. Cotton's remarks concerning Somalis & Minnesota:

"Cotton proceeded to talk in honest, real terms about Somalia and Somali immigration. I swear I could hear jaws clench. This crowd either supported open borders or was (mostly) too cowardly to speak about its downsides. Not Tom.

He detailed the enormous financial generosity of America toward the failed state of Somalia, including both humanitarian aid as well as military efforts, the latter at the cost of lives. “Blackhawk Down” and all that.

Turning to the realities of Somali immigration, he informed the audience that Minnesota spends more than 120 million dollars annually on that community. He noted that more than 80% of them do not speak English at home. He pointed out the obvious and ongoing problem of Somalis joining terrorist groups both here and abroad. He truthfully said that there is little cultural integration of them nor any particularly noteworthy contributions to wider society from them.

He mocked Gov. Mark Dayton for saying to those who had “real and legitimate” concerns about such a troubling situation that they “should find a different state.” He made plain that the Governor had it backwards, had it manifestly wrong and that American citizens have every right to question the consequences of immigration decisions from which they are largely excluded but are forced to live with.

Simple, candid common sense was the order of Cotton’s day and saying these things out loud made the Center’s audience deeply uncomfortable. Citizens have every right to question the settlement of those who don’t share our values or seek to change our culture into the backward one from which they came. Female genital mutilation comes to mind. That questioning can, and should, be done without rancor or unkindness but this crowd was largely made up of those who faint dead away at the thought of being called bigoted or racist."

All this is truer today than it was two years ago. The discussion along these lines amongst Minnesotans is precisely what the Times' story is designed to shut down. Local media was failing at the task. Ask yourself: why else would the New York Times take an interest in Saint Cloud, Minnesota? Why now? These stories don't appear for no reason. 

* * * * 

The story itself was badly written, notable for the falsehoods it contained as well as for salient facts it left out. This is how most "journalism" operates in the service of the Cathedral's agenda.

To begin, the reading material of one subject is categorically labeled xenophobic and conspiratorial, with no evidence provided for the claim, naturally. Robert Spencer's "" was included in those characterizations. Spencer is a scrupulously factual, leading authority on Islam, Islamism, the terrorism that naturally accompanies mass Muslim migration to the West and the author of "The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS." Buy this book.

The story went on to deride white demographic replacement, something minorities and the Democrats boast about, as a "racist conspiracy theory." Except that white replacement is an obvious, demonstrable fact, here in America and across Western Europe.

Whites are a minority in London. The very day this hit piece appeared, the Texas Tribune ran the story "Texas gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every additional white resident last year." No Texas, no republican president ever again. But "a racist conspiracy" according to the author of the New York Times story.

All of this is in the service to intimidate you into not noticing in the first place, and in the second, to remain silent if you do. Whites can object once they're minorities and lose electoral power.

The Minnesota chapter of CAIR is kowtowed to without mentioning its terrorist links, something the New York Times has in common with local media. The pretense it speaks for all Muslims is laughable but that's the only narrative you'll find in the press.

What did the story leave out about Somalis in Minnesota? Welfare dependency to the tune of 120 million dollars annually, lack of assimilation by Somalis into American culture, daycare fraud, home health services fraud, members of the Bloomington terrorist mosque Dar Al Farooq leaving to join the terrorist group Al- Shabab, an imam at that same mosque whose homilies instruct Muslims that it is their religious duty to kill Jews, and another terrorist attack at the Mall of America on top of that of Crossroads Mall.

Gee, why would people who had no say in the imposition of all this cultural enrichment have the least hesitation about such developments?

A friend more astute than I am noticed the Times' story flipped the demographic numbers: Saint Cloud went from 2% non-white to 33%. But, she observed, another way of saying this is that in 30 years it went from 98% white to 67% white. You're supposed to neither notice nor object. Diversity, weirdly, only affects white people. Why is that?

As one person on Twitter said: "Note the preposterous inversion of who the offending party is here, as if it's entirely natural for people from thousands of miles away to be settled en masse in a small city in the interior of this continent. But somehow it's the locals who must explain themselves!"

Another: "Amusing to see the obvious alliance between the East Coast media & refugee NGO's to facilitate ramrodding 3rd world migrants into white towns & the few remaining majority white cities. 'Accept this next wave of migrants or we'll stamp you as media-certified bigots or Hate Agents.'"

Yet another put it in succinct deadly terms: "Their desire to not be replaced is proof they deserve replacement."

Astead W. Herndon is the reporter commissioned by the Times for this hit job. "In his free time, he enjoys basketball, musical theater, “Atlanta” (his favorite TV show), Kanye West and is a die-hard supporter of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, a soccer team in North London," reads his bio in part. 

A black, gay, affirmative action hire, previously at the D.C. bureau of The Boston Globe, Herndon's Saint Cloud piece is actually the second installment of his cultural jihad against what he terms "white identity politics."

Wait a minute: isn't identity politics all the rage? Why, yes it is. Does every other ethnic group in America now engage in it constantly? Regrettably, yes. Why, then, should anyone object when whites do it?

Because it's racist. I'm not being facetious, that's the literal, and continuous, answer you will get to that obvious question. Such is the alarm in the Cathedral that whites will attain a racial, ethnic identity before the demographic transformation of America is complete that this non sequitur is deployed viciously and incessantly against them. Alas, it's effective: you don't want to be called a waycist bigot, do you white boy? It helps, of course, when there are a lot of white Leftists shouting this. 

His first article in what can only be presumed to be a tedious narrative tasked Herndon by his white overlords at the Times is titled "How Trump’s Brand of Grievance Politics Roiled a Pennsylvania Campaign." Herndon references an alleged push-pull among republicans "who have wrestled with how to deal with such overt appeals to white identity."

When all others are explicitly appealed to daily on the basis of those identities, why can't whites be? Because they're still in the voting majority, which gives the game away. 

Do you think Herndon will write on how blacks in America, who constitute 13% of the population, are responsible for more than 50% of violent crime? Never. Wrong narrative. 

This accounts for why you never see stories about the state of race relations among minorities. How are blacks and hispanics getting along? Asians and blacks? Blacks and Somalis? Africans new to America and blacks? Once you take out the white element, the narrative is grim. 

The cohesion of the coalition of the fringes depends upon the white boogeyman. Left to themselves they resemble "The Lord of the Flies." 

Based upon my review of Herndon's articles and social media postings, I've concluded he's a black national supremacist. Two can play that game and far more of us on the Right should. Turns out it's quite easy. 

Why don't we? Oh right, the name calling. The Cathedral's power is as strong as it is because currently it only has to start the job of non-personing and too many on the Right will do the rest of the work for it in order not to be next. Belatedly, they learn they are always next; it's only a matter of time, a matter of sequencing. 

With the Saint Cloud calumny, Herndon got a twofer: racist white people and Muslim haters. The reaction, however, in Minnesota has been less than spectacular to his libel-by-the-numbers job, something of a thud, as a friend of mine might say. Sure the local newspaper wrung its hands and the usual white haters in the Twin Cities media and political circles clucked but, beyond that, not much of an impact. 

No one lost their job, for example, always a goal with these stories to provide sufficient warning to others engaged in Wrong Think. Herndon's own tweeting of the story went decidedly non-viral and many of the replies, satisfyingly, were evidence that this narrative is losing strength.

The objects of the hit job hit back.

Objecting to your own demographic replacement without any say, as well as to the forced importation of Islam on a significant scale, which importation has already destroyed the United Kingdom and ruined much of Western Europe, is both appropriate and necessary. Cultural Janissaries, hired by corporate media, will be deployed to bolster attempts by local media to stop efforts of the citizenry from being effective in, well, resisting.

“Islam is not a race … Islam is simply a set of beliefs, and it is not ‘Islamophobic’ to say Islam is incompatible with liberal democracy,” Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the world's most famous and accomplished Somali, has rightly said. Why don't you see her celebrated in Minnesota media instead of the national embarrassment Ilhan Omar? Indeed, why is there a media blackout on Hirsi Ali in this state? 

The Cathedral is the short answer.

Why no extensive coverage as to the cost of Somali migration here, the fraud, the criminal gang violence, the extent of female genital mutilation, the lack of genuine assimilation as opposed to the gaming of the system and exploitation of their status as pets of the Regressive Left, or of the pathologies of that ghetto known as Cedar Riverside?

Again, the Cathedral. 

This framework explains a great deal, if not in fact most, of our politics and culture, tightly intertwined as they have become. Once understood, you'll never see anything the same way again.

* * * * 

There are, of course, better and worse ways of approaching these topics. Without exception, every person interviewed in Herndon's story who was concerned about these forced developments failed to realize what was really going on, failed to realize the hit job in the process of being written, failed to understand the Cathedral and, above all, failed to take my oft repeated advice: never talk to the media. No good, and much ill, will only come from it.

Stop cooperating with people who hate you.

Islam's rank, self-professed, incompatibility with America as founded should always be the locus of concern, not an individual Mohammedan. That person deserves to be treated with respect and the protection of the full panoply of legal rights afforded any American, even as Islam exploits what Hirsi Ali says is democracies soft underbellies, our religious freedoms. Tricky business. 

Propagandists and Islamofascist supremacists like Ilhan Omar are fair game for strong, consistent criticism. But should I meet her in real life, I'd treat her with all the usual courtesies which South Dakotans were raised to treat others. Macro, stopping the Islamization of America, not micro, an individual adherent, should be the object of our warranted attention.

When we do so, when those brave individuals in Saint Cloud and elsewhere in Minnesota who have awakened to the threat, who don't want their state & country to go the way of the U.K., who say no and seek to educate others, we will find, to our satisfaction, that the Cathedral strikes back.

This is why, despite all appearances to the contrary, the New York Times story is a sign of the Cathedral's panic.
