UPDATED (5/17): Sanctuary City Mayor Trashes American Hero Robert E. Lee

America, Federalism, History, Racism, States' Rights

Sanctuary City Mayor Trashes American Hero Robert E. Lee” is the current column, now on The Daily Caller. An excerpt:

Mayor Mike Signer—who had declared his intention to make Charlottesville, Virginia, the “capital of the resistance” to President Trump and a sanctuary city “to protect immigrants and refugees”—is refusing to protect a symbol saluting one of America’s greatest men.

Yes, Robert E. Lee was a great American.

If Signer knew the first thing about human valor, he’d know that there was no man more valorous and courageous than Robert E. Lee…

… With its statue, Charlottesville salutes Gen. Lee, who, in a letter to his sister, expressed unhectoring clarity as to where his loyalties lay:

“With all my devotion to the Union, and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relatives, my children, my home.”

Lee, you see, was first and foremost a Virginian, the state that gave America its greatest presidents and the Constitution itself.

Born in New York (confirmation of which Sergey Brin’s Google search is reluctant to cough up), steeped in Berkeley and Princeton—Mayor Mike Signer is nothing but a carpetbagger. …

READ THE REST. “Sanctuary City Mayor Trashes American Hero Robert E. Lee” is now on The Daily Caller.

UPDATE (5/17):

TownHall.com readers: “Rarely do we find honesty such as this when reading about the War for Southern Independence.” And, “It’s kinda sad that a woman like Ilana who was born in South Africa, lived in Israel and around the world, knows more about our history during the ‘Civil War’ than the mayor of Charlottesville!!”

Black Man Makes Anti-Semitic Threats Over Breakup With #Whitegirl

Affirmative Action, Anti-Semitism, Education, Judaism & Jews, Race, Racism

A lot of the recent anti-semitism came from a black man, enraged over a breakup.

Thankfully he, Juan Thompson, didn’t call her “bitch.” While making “at least eight of the hoax bomb threats against Jewish American institutions,” Thompson of Missouri (who had worked for The Intercept, no less), tweeted out missives like this one:

“Know any good lawyers? Need to stop this nasty/racist #whitegirl I dated who sent a bomb threat in my name & wants me to be raped in jail.”

Inciting racial hatred against whites is just par for the course, reflexive (imbibed in schools, with the aid of soviet-style doctrinal teachers and teaching aids. “Systemic racism” is one).

As Into The Cannibal’s Pot documents in detail, honky is not the repository of the white hot hate that kills. Colin Flaherty’s “White Girl Bleed A Lot” does the same.

Having implicated Donald Trump in creating atmospheric conditions conducive to anti-semitism, the repugnant Anti-Defamation League has remained unapologetic:

Evan Bernstein, the New York regional director at the Anti-Defamation League, said that Jewish “communities are hurting”.
“There are many more JCC bomb threats that have not been solved,” Mr Bernstein told journalists on Friday.
“We hope all law enforcement will continue to be diligent.”

You don’t represent this Jew!

An Individualist’s Position On Rubbing-In Racial Differences In Intelligence

Individualism Vs. Collectivism, Intelligence, Morality, Paleolibertarianism, Political Correctness, Race, Racism, Reason

It’s about etiquette and kindness, really. (Or being a softie.)

I had tweeted out the American Renaissance interview with a young black man, the point being to note how he was “ostracized as an Uncle Tom for being a bookish, high-achiever, high IQ individual, who spoke standard English.”

On the Facebook thread, our reader made this point:

Paul Bustion:I find articles like this distasteful. I find it distasteful to emphasize the racial differences in intelligence. Its probably true that Europeans, Northeast Asians and Ashkenazi Jews on average are more intelligent than Africans, but I think its distasteful to make a point of emphasizing the fact.”

My reply:

Ilana Mercer, Author:Perfectly put. My sentiment exactly. The lady in me recoils from such cruelty. I could never. I’m an individualist. While I recognize reality about everything—cleave to it in writing, closely deduce from it—I find no redeeming personal virtue in [rubbing-in the point on inter-racial, aggregate differences in IQ scores]. I do, and will, fight tooth-and-nail when I am called a racist because of the intellectual and moral shortfalls of others.”

“Kudos [to our reader] for making this point! “

This quagmire is touched on in my “Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa.”

UPDATED: FACEBOOK THREAD:

Ilana Mercer, Author Agreed, John Cronk. It’s just something I find tacky. What am I confronting a nice black man about? I’ll confront him if he dare to accuse me of racism b/c not as smart as I, or blame me for his lower inhibitions. I will not tell a perfectly good individual he is inferior. For one, maybe he isn’t? You interact with individuals based on their individual characteristics, not on an aggregate character of a group, valid though it is.

Ilana Mercer, Author: Kerry, I don’t ignore the rule for the exception. You treat each individual as an individual. I write copiously about race and aggregate racial differences. People here are obviously not keeping up with this work. Other than the racialists (Steve Sailer, Peter Brimelow, Jared Taylor), I don’t know who has incorporated the topic more into analysis than this writer. (Colin Flaherty wisely sticks to chronicling and providing us with an enormous reservoir of data. But he’s a sweet man. I think he might agree with me about personal interactions. Ditto Jack Kerwick.) The point I am making is one of manners and courtesy to a fellow human being. ‘Tis all. We need to be virtuous, too. And anyone who suggests I am not a fierce writer, aggressive too, on the topic, hasn’t been reading. Search under Racial Issues: http://www.ilanamercer.com/…/public_article_list_list.php

Fake News Doesn’t Want You To Know, But MLK Spared A Thought For Poor Whites

Democrats, Donald Trump, Race, Racism

I think my father would be very concerned about the fact that we have 50 [million or] 60 million people living in poverty, and somehow [we’ve] got to create the climate for all boats to be lifted.

So said Martin Luther King III, son of civil rights leader the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., after meeting with President-elect Donald Trump.

I watched King say this, but I could not find the quote in the Fake News media. (I eventually found it in the Washington Times.)  It’s obvious why. What Martin Luther King III says suggests that, for all his faults, senior was, nevertheless, nothing like the black community’s current, corrupt race hustlers. For he gave some thought to the non-black poor.

The Fake News media don’t want to promote inclusive world views; they believe in the practice of identity politics by minorities, and in submission to identity politics for whites.

But it is true that MLK did spare a thought for poor whites.

“It is a simple matter of justice,” said the senior Rev. King,” that America, “in dealing creatively with the task of raising the Negro [MLK’s words] from backwardness [MLK’s words], should also be rescuing a large stratum of the forgotten white poor.”

Here is Bernie Goldberg, on Bill O’Reilly’s The Factor, exculpating the disgusting conduct of Rep. John Lewis now and over the years. No! Goldberg bends over backward to make excuses for this  individual.  Goldberg doesn’t hold Lewis accountable, although Bill tries, but not hard enough.
