So Far, Most Land Grabbed In South Africa Lies Uncultivated

Africa, Communism, Individual Rights, Private Property, Socialism, South-Africa

Seventy percent of the land lies fallow—that is land acquired by the ANC (the African National Congress) from whites, on a “willing buyer, willing seller” basis, to give to blacks.

This, the Economist confirms (Aug 23rd 2018), while advising on how to “improve” the process of handing over large-scale commercial farms that feed the nation, to subsistence farmers who can barely feed themselves.

After all, these land recipients are bad farmers only “because new black farmers receive [so] little help.”

UPDATED IV (8/15): A Pair Of Motor-Mouth Faux Conservatives: Explaining What Makes Ben Shapiro & Meghan McCain ‘Crass Pragmatists’

Foreign Policy, Individual Rights, Iraq, John McCain, Left-Liberalism, Neoconservatism

On WND.com, the new column is “A Pair of Motor-Mouth Faux Conservatives.” On the Unz Review, it’s “What Makes Ben Shapiro & Meghan McCain Crass Pragmatists.”

An excerpt:

Ben Shapiro is an anti-Trumper, who continues to assert baselessly that “the future of the Republican party is anti-Trump.”

Fox News, generally pro-POTUS, persists in exposing Deplorables to Shapiro’s twitter travails and spats with a left that, in turn, doesn’t know left from right—for Ben is no rightist; he’s a neoconservative media-pleaser.

In this farcical tradition, Ben was asked to comment on the election of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, whom Rush Limbaugh—he knows a thing or two—calls the female Barack Obama.

Since winning the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district, Cortez, a hard-core socialist, has been the toast of the town.

True to type, Shapiro failed to come up with one principled argument against Cortez’ socialism. All that came through was:

“It doesn’t work.” Socialism doesn’t work.

Not a word did wonder boy utter about the very crux of the matter. The rights-violating underpinnings of socialism is what makes socialism and its attendant political platform both an economic wrecking ball and plain wicked.

Another popular fount of conservative philosophy is Meghan McCain. She’s as conservative as her father, John McCain, from whom she got a dynastic leg-up in the menagerie of morons that is mainstream media.

On “The View,” a very vulgar program, Meghan made a similar non-case to the one mouthed by motor-mouth Shapiro:

“Name one country that socialism has ever worked” (sic) she blurted. (Translated: “Name a country where socialism has worked.”)

In her defense, we should say that everyone knows Meghan is no Michael Oakeshott. The problem being that Ben is considered the very embodiment of Russell Kirk, a classical conservative, and the intellectual father of American conservatism, may it rest in peace. …

… READ THE REST.  On WND.com, the new column is “A Pair of Motor-Mouth Faux Conservatives.” On the Unz Review, it’s “What Makes Ben Shapiro & Meghan McCain Crass Pragmatists?”

Whatever floats your boat.

UPDATE: In “The historical revisionists,” Vox Day upbraids “Ben Shapiro for trying to speech police Pat Buchanan for telling the truth about American history.”

Also via Vox Day:

Because Shapiro is an evil little fraud. He’s terrified of debate with anyone who isn’t a left-wing halfwit. He’s a midwit, a gatekeeper, and a media construct who has been relentlessly pushed on American conservatives since he was in junior high. Any Christian or conservative who considers himself a Shapiro fan is a naive fool who has been taken in by the propaganda program. The same thing goes for Jordan Peterson.

These heavily promoted wormtongues do not speak the truth, they do not believe what their fans think they believe, and their objectives are to protect evil by distracting and confusing those who would otherwise stand against it. William F. Buckley. Glenn Beck. Ben Shapiro. Jordan Peterson…. when are conservatives going to stop falling for these obvious frauds?

UPDATE I (7/30): Fox News’ “The Story” discusses socialism. The debate is purely pragmatic (cost analysis); no mention of principles, namely the infraction of individual rights involved.

UPDATE II: Another cost analysis by Guy Benson. Rights? What’s that?

UPDATED (1/8/018): One Thing Is Certain: South African Immigrants To Russia Won’t Have A Destabilizing Effect

IMMIGRATION, Individual Rights, Multiculturalism, Russia, South-Africa

Thanks, Russia, for accepting 15,000 white South African farmers as the true refugees they are. This via Lana Lokteff, who, like me, is all smiles. I’ve been fighting for years for this day. Tears of joy.

“The Ugly Truth About Democratic South Africa” was published in … 2006!

Around the time Russia was doing this good deed, Braveheart Trump was saying that immigration was destroying Europe; that it’s losing its character. To say nothing about Europe gaining a fractious character, instead. This, as Theresa May cow-ered behind her podium.

One thing is certain: These new South African arrivals to Russia will not have a destabilizing effect on their hosts and new homeland.

A Giant Step For The She-Devils Of ‘Pussy Riot’

Feminism, Gender, Individual Rights, Left-Liberalism, Morality, Russia, Sport

Usually the “work” of Pussy Riot, the Russian “protest performance group,” consists of defacing Russian orthodox cathedrals or shoving crucifixes up in their orifices (but, sadly, not down their gullets). All in public.

This time, during the World Cup final, in Moscow, Pussy Riot staged “a pitch invasion early in the second half of the final.” The group’s list of demands indicated some evolution in this disgraceful outfit’s modus operandi. They want:

Free political prisoners.
Do not put people in jail for social media “likes”.
Stop illegal detentions at political rallies.
Allow political competition in Russia.
Do not fabricate criminal cases and detain people for no reason.

Not quite a giant step for woman-kind, but certainly a step up in the repertoire of the she-devils of Pussy Riot.
