  1. Lion,

    I am posting this link because of the very illuminating letter to the editor that is quoted, in yellow:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/paloma/daily-202/2016/03/01/daily-202-why-donald-trump-s-support-keeps-expanding/56d4ff58981b92a22d5852ee/?wpmm=1&wpisrc=nl_daily202

    It is as good a reason as any to vote for Trump. He makes an excellent case. GOPe must be annihilated.

    This kind of attitude is really the best thing that could happen to the right. Encouraging moderate liberals to chastise extreme leftists and cultural marxists.

  4. Just voted for Trump here at the GA primary.

    When getting my card I notice the poll workers had something jotted on a piece of paper, saying D-275, R-240. If that truly denotes the numbers of Dem to Repubs they’d seen today so far it means huuuuuuuge turnout for the GOP, considering the Demographics of my individual voting precinct.

        I wouldn’t guess there’s a lot of that going on down South today. It wasn’t even mentioned as a possible factor in SC.

        Blacks aren’t crafty enough to hold to that kind of crossover strategy and don’t turn out well for non-historic primaries anyway, plus the most politically active sisters love Hillary because she can relate to their plight of forever trying to stand by your troubled black man. And the few Bernie-crazy SWPL’s below the Maxon-Dixon are often of Northeastern origin and they realize their rarity here, so they won’t waste their vote in hopes of keeping his fading dream alive.

    • I fell for the clickbait. It’s Heartiste’s garbage, with nasty name-calling, and I wouldn’t worry about it. If he wants to make a point, does he have to name-call? This is childish. Heartiste is the most loathsome of the alt-right slimebags. He is a hard core anti-Semite, and I suspect most of his experiences with women are imaginary.

      But it gives me an opportunity to explain Jewish leftism, which is attributable to more than high Jewish IQ. Jewish leftism is no different from any other kind of leftism: it’s a result of a deteriorated traditional identity, leftism offering a fraudulent universalistic pseudo-identity. If Jews dominate these groups, it’s because modernity hit the traditional Jewish identity harder than other groups and destroyed the Jewish identity. The high mean IQ predicts that a greater share of the leadership and the commentariat will be Jewish, just as a high Jewish mean IQ predicts that where you have many Jews, they will dominate the hard sciences.

      “Yes, Jews have higher average IQs that boost their representation in many cognitively demanding and particularly verbal-oriented fields,”

      Is that why 20th century physics/math was literally dominated by Ashkenazi Jews? Perhaps “Heartiste” can explain gravitational waves to us ?

      Sucks when you are an idiot of no particular accomplishment, and you constantly get turfed out by individuals from a people you hate. It must hurt.

      BTW, if he wants to play “Name the Jew,” he should take a look at Lion’s post about all the Jews who work for/around Donald J. Trump.

        March 1, 2016 at 7:32 pm

      • What you said about lost identity seems right, at least as an important factor. I think that Heartiste (despite being a scumbag) might not be entirely wrong – genetic personality traits might play a part in Jews’ political tendencies. Due to his irrational dislike of Jews, however, he makes that into the dominant factor and then from there jumps to the Jew-hating “blame the Jews for liberalism” stuff.

        I think that what he and his kind don’t understand is that Jews genetically tend to have personality traits which some people find annoying – not subversive/traitorous/swamp-them-with-immigration/whatever – just annoying. And among those who find Jews annoying are dumb people who then make up blame-the-Jews stuff in order to explain their feeling of annoyance.

        Italians, by the way, don’t seem to find Jews particularly annoying. I also appreciate Italians because fear of our tough Italians may be helping to discourage Muslims such as the Bay Ridge ones from behaving the way Muslims have in Europe.

      • Jews being Democrats is entirely explained by historical circumstances.

        There are many cases where Jews were conservative. German American Jews from a century ago and British Jews since the 19th century were or have been right leaning.

        The best way to view Jewish political behavior is that they usually adopt the preferences of other whites.

        March 1, 2016 at 8:08 pm

      • You may be right, Lion. Gothamette’s point is observable in any event. Compare Israeli Jews to Park Slope Jews – Park Slope Jews have no identity beyond their liberalism while Israeli Jews have real Jewish identity and are far less liberal on the whole (and are certainly also less liberal than a number of European countries where there are very few Jews).

        Perturabo

        March 1, 2016 at 8:15 pm

      • Half right, Perturabo. I’m IA, and true we get along famously with Jews (although this is California, so we might be getting a gentler variety), but it’s a myth that Italians are tough. I never met an Irish guy who wasn’t twice as tough. By the way, you’ll never see a black guy take on an Irishman of similar size. They know better.

      • @Perturabo, About these annoying genetic traits, every Jew I’ve ever met from the mid-West was soft-spoken, polite, and deferential. I could hardly believe they were Jewish, they were so un-neurotic and normal. Perhaps the Jewish traits you are talking about are New York traits? My two best friends from high school are Irish and Italian. I have never finished a sentence around either one of them.

        I think Heartiste is German. I don’t hold that against the Germans.

      • @UJ, Mrs. Thatcher’s district of Finchley was heavily Jewish. British Jews’ voting patterns up until the cultural storms of the 1980s directly reflected their economic status, you didn’t have this American Jewish pattern of “earning like Episcopalians and voting like Puerto Ricans.” American Jewish behavior is peculiar — to America, and of course, to the regions that American Jews are most highly concentrated. (See Colin Woodard’s American Nations, great book.)

        March 1, 2016 at 8:55 pm

      • @Perturabo, I stole my ideas from Hillel Halkin’s, Letters to An American Jewish Friend. It’s a great book and explains the seemingly bizarre behavior pattern of liberal Jews brilliantly. This is not the first time that Jews have plunged headlong into an attractive secular culture, and lost their minds in the process. It’s an old story.

        gothamette

        March 1, 2016 at 8:57 pm

      • Gothamette, I don’t mean that Jews are outright rude – more that (I see that you said “not neurotic,” which I note is in disagreement with this) they tend to be fussy, obsessive, spectrumy, overclarify their points, balance details vs broad strokes in odd ways. Stuff like that. Nerdy and socially awkward, I suppose. I say this in a friendly way – I’m half Jewish, nerdy, somewhat socially awkward, and I like Jews. I may be projecting somewhat, haha. Hmm, are they New York traits? I’m not sure. I am partly basing this on my New-York-centric family which has an Ashkenazi father and Anglo mother. I think there must be something to the Jews-annoy-people hypothesis though, because the dislike exists and it comes from somewhere. Thanks for the book recommendation, although I pretty much only read sci-fi these days. The idea that Jews “plunge into an attractive secular culture” or, as TUJ said, “adopt the preferences of other whites” is interesting because it would mean there is, in fact, little or no “Jewish question.” I think that may be overly optimistic (ie, I think the differences are somewhat problematic and maybe a lot of us should consider moving to Israel to have our own culture) but the Jew-haters are of course evil and crazy.

        Perturabo

        March 1, 2016 at 10:50 pm

      • @perturabo, Not sure if you are still reading this thread but….believe it or not, I don’t think that the characteristics you listed are esp. Jewish, nor are they the characteristics that the alt-right thinks are Jewish.

        Oddly, the characteristics they say are peculiarly and objectionably Jewish are those that their fuhrer has in spades: loudness, brashness, salesmanship, dishonesty, an innate obsession with sticking it to the inner circle, and a fiendish will to dominate. Steve Sailer (a soft alt-righter) has done more posts on the supposed Jewish obsession with country club snubs than he has done on China, for example.

        I don’t deny that Jews have ethnic characteristics and if some people hate us for them, I don’t care. What I object to is the alt-right trope of saying that (a) these are group genetic characteristics and (b) and that they derive from the Jewish religion. This is simply ridiculous and scientifically absurd. True Sephardim are very genteel, Mizrachim are good natured party animals. How could this happen if the Jewish religion is so evil?

        The alt-right takes their “theories” straight out of Kevin McDonald’s playbook – Jews are a sinister, malicious people whose very nature inclines them to destroy the “host” society. This is madness. Finer minds than mine have debunked his horseshit. I don’t have the time to focus on insane people, got better things to do. All I can say is, I thought the KKK business was tired MSM dogma rearing its head, but the more normal people focus on Trump’s alt-right support, the worse it will be for him.

        Hope this helps.

        To the extent there are different interests between liberal gentiles and liberal Jews, the differences and motivations are modest.

        So was her Chancellor, Lord Lawson.

    • I thought what Heartiste said was middle of the road. I disagree with him for the most part but it wasn’t unfair, just wrong.

      Jews involved in the Alt-Right need to be less sensitive. No group is above criticism, us included. I think most of the alt right criticism of us is bullshit but its harmless and when we freak out about it it doesn’t serve us well.

      Also, I don’t think it’s untrue that some Jewish elites really are motivated by anti-white(Gentile, that is) racial animus. At least subconsciously. Although not nearly as much as the iStevers would have you believe.

      As a boxing fan, I have no problem saying that I used to root for black fighters against the Klitschko brothers and it was absolutely motivated by my racial hostility to Eastern Euros.

        Jews involved in the Alt-Right should have their heads examined. The Alt-Right is made up of poisonous people. And they don’t criticize Jews; they demonize Jews. Big difference.

        Anyway I don’t care about them, I only slag them because it’s fun and gives me a chance to get stuff off my chest.

      • I thought what Heartiste said was middle of the road.

        True, but still wrong. The comparison between Jews and various Christian denominations is flawed because Jews are one of the most atheistic of all American white groups. Gentile atheists and agnostics have similar political preferences to Jews.

        Additionally, secular Russian Jewish immigrants and Orthodox Jews share the same genes and psychological traits (of all kinds) as American Jews but they have exact opposite political preferences.

        The difference between their voting patterns is explained by ethnocentrism, not gene traits. Politically conservative Jews score higher on all measures of Jewish ethnocentrism (tolerance towards intermarriage, religious attendance, support for Israel) than liberal Jews.

        I’m sorry that the pet internet theory for Jewish liberalism, ‘liberal Jews are liberal because they’re ethnocentric’, is the exact opposite of what happens in reality. But at some point a theory this at odds with evidence has to be given up.

        You can be a race realist & not be a part of the alt-right. Hang around their sites, read their tweets, and the picture of the greedy Jew with the hooked schnozz pops up. And you cannot argue people out of ideas that they were not argued into. Good luck with that.

      • Liberal elites hate proles for so many reasons: proles are less intelligent, not as good looking (yes, I believe this to be true), poorer, fatter, uncultured, they enjoy sports that the elite disdain (cage fighting, and nascar), diet (fast food and meat) and, very weirdly, because proles are heavy smokers. There was a silly Kevin Costner move out about 20 years ago, Waterworld, and the villains of the movie were villains because they smoked cigarettes, no other reason. Weird.

        The truth is, though, look at any liberal elite and he/she is only a generation or two or three removed from proledom him/herself.

  13. In Virginia, the RCP average is accurate for all of the candidates except Rubio, who has +8 vs the polls in the actual voting. But the RCP Virginia averages only add up to 90 points or so. So maybe Rubio got the “undecided” vote.

    March 1, 2016 at 8:22 pm

  14. Even if you agree with Heartiste, Jews are still only 7% of the population, so they couldn’t have forced America’s recent swing towards liberalism alone.

    Our government just didn’t do enough to take care of our demographic profile. The American brand of conservatism has some strong undercurrents that stem from adherence to traditions from the days of our founding fathers and also from a sense of connectedness to the land. It’s never wise to expect immigrants to get your history and culture, especially urbanite newcomers of any type.

    Asians come here and they don’t get it, and neither do gentile Western Europeans that move here (Eastern Europeans are a little better about it due to recent exposure to nationalism). And both of those groups trend far, far to the left of the average white American. Many immigrants just tend to think as if the modern, always wealthy America they know must’ve just fell from the sky intact in that same condition way back in 1776 or something.

    Just another reason that we shouldn’t have opened the floodgates on unfettered immigration starting in the mid 60’s and then exploding during the Reagan days. Even Australia had a brief flirtation with a publicly proclaimed “white Australia” policy that favored immigrants from English-speaking countries and it lasted until as late as 1973, while the US government has never even had the foresight to bother passing a law making English our official language at any point.

      • That’s not how anti-Semites count Jews.

        I previously estimated that 5% of whites in the U.S. are Jewish enough to make Aliyah to Israel.

        There are more Jews than you realize, so they are not as overpresented as you think they are.
