Rest In Peace, Prince Philip; Burn In Hell Meghan Markle

America, Britain, Celebrity, Family, Pop-Psychology

Bide your time, lovely Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. You’ll be queen one day, a beautiful and benevolent queen, and then you can dispatch the manipulative Meghan Markle to The Tower of London (“Mighty fortress. Royal palace. Infamous prison”), if she dare set foot in England.

It’s time for the royals to reclaim the moxie of Queen Elizabeth I (1533–1603).

This hopeful exhortation comes against the backdrop of the passing of “Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, at the age of 99, [which] marks both a moment of personal grief for the Queen and the royal family and a moment of national mourning for a man who dedicated his life to public service.”

Prince Philip had been teetering when Markle gave her performance with the Queen of Kitsch, Oprah Winfrey. Meghan Markle’s sordid little Oprah psycho-drama dwarfs, in this context. She has shown herself as a tacky, tawdry, Hollywood c-list actress, who is a disgrace to the decent Americans.

In 2017, I had predicated, too hastily, that Meghan Markle, American actress, would finish what Diana Spencer had begun: destroy the Monarchy. Markle was a divorced, left-liberal feminist out of Hollywood. It screams degeneracy. She’s pathologically manipulative, too. The signs were there. Check out video footage I posted then of the Child Snake.

When Markle erupted, the cretins of American media proved too corrupt and stupid to look at the bare-bones of reality: who was doing the trashing, dividing and bad-mouthing? ‘Twas trashy Meghan Markle.

Peddling hearsay: That was Meghan Markle, who’s turned her houseboy on his family, the monarchy. The latter are refined, something trash-bag Markle doesn’t get. Even if the Queen and her family thought “improper” thoughts about her, they’d never express them.

Incidentally, Markle’s narcissism is not a mental disorder, it needs no diagnosis; it’s a fault and a flaw. Over this space, we do not medicalize bad, ugly behavior. That lefty mode of thinking is another erroneous thinking adopted by conservatives from the Left. Evil is not an illness.

A brother comes out with it: That empty suit, Meghan Markle, has unleashed insignificance on an anguished world, says “Suits” co-star Wendell Pierce. Well said. That’s narcissism, now isn’t it? Foisting your solipsistic, inconsequential self on the cosmos.

The queen won’t outlive Meghan Markle, but she dwarfs that ditz.

Comparing Biden (sadly dim) and Queen Elizabeth (sharp), as she conducts a Zoom call with The Kingdom, Mark Steyn performed brilliant satire on the Tucker Carlson Show, calling the Queen—read about some of her feats in “Mobocracy Vs. Monarchy“—Bret Baier in a tiara.

Heartfelt condolences, your Majesty.

NEW ON YouTube: David Vance In Conversation With ilana mercer

Argument, Britain, Conservatism, Ilana Mercer, libertarianism, Paleolibertarianism, Political Philosophy, Race, Racism, The West

Interested interviewers: I am laconic, not loquacious.—ilana mercer

A YouTube CHAT With UK’s illustrious and debonair David Vance: The lads (David and his producer) treated me so very kindly. (As in welcoming and mannered, rather than like other requests constantly received from ego-bound interviewers, concerned with rambling with me about their own views, which, being laconic, not loquacious, I cannot do.) We laughed hard, sharing that Sir Humphrey Appleby sense of humor.

The topics: The Systemic Racism irrational rot, deconstructed in columns, and my latest on the wussification of the West, as manifested in the book-burning Seuss saga and the conservative response thereto.

Hint: We both argue process—the right of freemen to think, speak and write impolite thoughts. We refuse to debate the content of those thought, because that would be conceding the Left’s Argument, as conservatives habitually do.

I was delighted to be asked by David to come on more regularly.

 

 

UPDATED (4/9): Member Of The Meritless McCain Dynasty Pans Duty-Bound British Monarchy

If forced to choose between mobocracy and monarchy, the latter is far preferable and benevolent.–ilana mercer

To spout received opinion, Fox News, neoconservative at heart, hired Ben Domenech, the unremarkable husband of the irredeemably awful Meghan McCain.

At the conclusion of a wishy-washy Fox segment about the wanton Meghan Markle, the man who had married into the meritless McCain dynasty declared:

“There is nothing more American than hating the British Crown.”

The correct perspective is in my “Mobocracy Vs. Monarchy:

The Queen of England might be a member of the much-maligned landed aristocracy, but she has acquitted herself as a natural aristocrat would. Elizabeth II has lived a life of dedication and duty, and done so with impeccable class. The Queen has been working quietly (and often thanklessly) for the English people for over half a century. Elizabeth Windsor was 13 when World War II broke out, which is when she gave her first official radio broadcast to console the children who had been evacuated “from Britain to America, Canada and elsewhere.” Still in her teens, Elizabeth joined the military, “where,” according to Wikipedia, “she … trained as a driver, and drove a military truck while she served.”

If forced to choose between the mob (democracy) and the monarchy, the latter is far preferable and benevolent. This thesis is anatomized in Democracy: The God that Failed: The Economics and Politics of Monarchy, Democracy, and Natural Order, by libertarian political philosopher Hans-Hermann Hoppe. In his seminal work, Hoppe provides ample support—historical and analytical—for democracy’s inferiority as compared to monarchy:

‘… democracy has succeeded where monarchy only made a modest beginning: in the ultimate destruction of the natural elites. The fortunes of great families have dissipated, and their tradition of a culture of economic independence, intellectual farsightedness, and moral and spiritual leadership has been lost and forgotten. Rich men still exist today, but more frequently than not they owe their fortune now directly or indirectly to the state.’

“[I]n light of elementary economic theory, the conduct of government and the effects of government policy on civil society can be expected to be systematically different, depending on whether the government apparatus is owned privately or publicly,” explains Hoppe. “From the viewpoint of those who prefer less exploitation over more and who value farsightedness and individual responsibility above shortsightedness and irresponsibility, the historic transition from monarchy to democracy represents not progress but civilizational decline.”

UPDATE (4/9): A relative of the VP, Kamala Harris, white-hating Meena Harris, is another future “View” host. Every bit as banal, privileged and intellectually dispensable as imbecile Meghan McCain.

She tweeted:

I deleted a previous tweet about the suspect in the Boulder shooting. I made an assumption based on his being taken into custody alive and the fact that the majority of mass shootings in the U.S. are carried out by white men.

The hate crime in Boulder Massacre was by a Muslim refugee: #AhmadAlAliwiAlissa

Counters Steve Sailer: “According to the New York Times study of all 358 mass shootings in the US in 2015, the mass shooters were black over 70% of the time.”

The Future of Medicine in America: Whites Go To The Back Of The Proverbial Bus

America, Britain, COVID-19, Criminal Injustice, Ethics, Morality, Race, Racism, The West

In Britain, where the image appended originates, “authorities are getting the vaccine to their elderly as quickly as they can.” As dysfunctional and perfidious as Albion certainly is, there doesn’t seem to be any debate over the urgent need to protect the vulnerable elderly. It’s what a civilized society does.

The future of medicine in America is somewhat different. The “idea” is not to get too fixated on the old, who are dying of the China Virus. After all, America’s elderly are overwhelmingly white and hence privileged.

That is the immoral non sequitur coming from the nation’s ethicists. Non sequitur why? Because, from the fact that one is old, it doesn’t follow that one is white and privileged. Moreover, from the moral point of view, determining who shall live and who shall die based on race is indeed eugenics. Tucker Carlson called it out courageously .

Apparently, in America, eugenics practiced against whites by other whites emulating God is morally redeemable.

In America The Radical, those chosen to apply ethics to questions of public policy are morally and intellectually bankrupt. Profoundly so. One Harald Schmidt (whatever happened to the spelling of “Harold”? Too white, as in grammatical?) has advised the CDC that,

“Older populations are whiter. [sic] Society is structured in a way that enables them to live longer. Instead of giving additional health benefits to those who already have more of them, we can start to level the playing field a bit.”

As others have pointed out, the discrimination is not even based on empirical evidence (see “Essential workers should get coronavirus vaccine before the elderly, experts tell NYT“):

“…he’s wrong—Asians and Hispanics have greatest life expectancy in US,” wrote Christina Hoff Sommers. According to data compiled by worldlifeexpectancy.com from the CDC and NIH, Asian Americans have a life expectancy of 86.67 and Hispanic Americans, 82.89. White Americans have a life expectancy of 79.12.

Writes Tucker Carlson:

But in this country, a panel of ideologues at the CDC has decided that the elderly should not be at the front of the line. The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) has made a different determination, and the reasoning is simple: Old people in this country are too White to save. They even put it in writing.

Last month, the CDC’s Vaccine Advisory Committee unanimously approved recommendations from a doctor called Kathleen Dooling. According to her presentation, it is true that more lives would be saved if the elderly receive priority access to the vaccine. But here’s the problem: “Racial and ethnic minority groups [are] under-represented [sic] among adults” age 65 and older. Therefore, the elderly should not be a top priority.

According to the CDC panel, another group, those officially classified as “non-healthcare essential workers”, should get the vaccine first. Why is that? Because “racial and ethnic minority groups [are] disproportionately represented in many essential industries.”

In other words, it’s entirely racial. They’re making the decision based on race. Kathleen Dooling’s presentation concluded that doling out life-saving medicine on the basis of skin color would “mitigate health inequities.” Of course it would kill people, and she effectively concedes that. But the people it would kill come from a disfavored race, so it’s not a big deal.

It’s been a very long time since anyone close to what we would consider the mainstream has endorsed eugenics, but that’s exactly what this is. Earlier this month, The New York Times, supposedly our greatest newspaper, interviewed Harald Schmidt, a leading expert on medical ethics and vaccination at the University of Pennsylvania.

Here’s how Harald Schmidt advised the CDC: “Older populations are whiter. [sic] Society is structured in a way that enables them to live longer. Instead of giving additional health benefits to those who already have more of them, we can start to level the playing field a bit.”

This anti-white pathology emanates from American academics. The dishonorable Harald Schmidt should be stripped of his “ethicist” honorific. Institutions that teach such ethics as Harald espouses ought to be discredited, certainly not attended.

Schmidt is an anti-white activist. And, I’d urge Mr. Carlson to vaporize less about the “identity politics that divides us.” For, as I’ve argued, “It’s Not ‘Identity Politics,’ It’s Anti-White Politics”:

Every time a manifestly racist, anti-white event goes down, which is frequently, conservative media call it “identity politics.” “The left is playing identity politics.”
Whatever is convulsing the country, it’s not identity politics. For, blacks are not being pitted against Hispanics. Hispanics are not being sicced on Asians, and Ameri-Indians aren’t being urged to attack the groups just mentioned. Rather, they’re all piling on honky. Hence, anti-white politics or animus.

Having exposed this horror, a logical extension of the institutionalization of progressivism and the Critical Race Theory rot, it would be immensely helpful if the courageous Mr. Carlson and the timid conservative commentariat dropped the “identity politics” fig-leaf in favor of “anti-white politics”:

Undergirding the factional identity politics so roundly condemned is a practiced anti-whiteness.  Hispanic, LGBT, plutocrat and feminist: All would concur. The road to their political salvation is in collaborating to extinguish “white dominant culture.” —ilana mercer
