Racist American Museum of Natural History

In front of the American Museum of Natural History is the Equestrian Statue of Theodore Roosevelt. From this angle, we can see the half-naked black guy wearing primitive African garb standing to Teddy Roosevelt’s left. The black guy is there to show Teddy Roosevelt’s noble-minded but racist humanitarianism to what he considered to be inferior races.

I took some pictures to preserve the memory of this great work of art which will surely be the first statue in New York City to be taken down in this current mania of statue removal.

    • After reading RIVER OF DOUBT, if you haven’t already, he’ll REALLY be your favorite president. At age 54, Roosevelt travels deep into the Amazon rainforest with a small party of explorers to chart an unknown tributary of the Amazon.

  2. Amazing Poll, 49% blame both sides or left mostly for violence while 40% blame mostly the right. I guess that means more people in the country are nazis than not. Thankfully, not a single one of them in the political-media-corporate establishment besides Trump.

    SJWs need to demand the Metropolitan Museum of Art to remove any vestiges associated with slavery. That’ll take out most of the Ancient World, especially the Greco-Roman stuff. Wait, let’s remove all the African and Islamic themes while we’re at it.

      • Nah, it is a good photo. That being said, I would have snapped a better photo with the same camera: avoid the gaggle of average badly-dressed people on the lower right, wait a couple seconds for the cloud background to shift to a better angle, get the stupid and eternally stupid hot dog truck out of the picture, and move ten steps to the left where the obnoxious tall building to the left of the middle would be hidden behind the weedy trees. Sure the trees in the picture are all weedy but nobody ever blames the artist for that. (last couple of times I discussed pictorial art on this blog rude people who do not care about visual art said rude things. if they wish to do so again, maybe they could spend ten minutes – just ten minutes – thinking about art. The world is beautiful and while all artists are mediocre compared to the Creator of the world, lots of us know what we are talking about, even if we are what you consider to be your fellow mediocrities – compared to the Creator – of creative visual art. Yes I could not have created a blue sky with impassive magnificent clouds.)

  9. Although Trump asked where you draw the line it’s also a question of how you draw it, as this post and others suggest. Certainly Washington could be drawn on the wrong side at present, if the focus is restricted to slavery. But of course liberalism has no stated endpoint and meeting no resistance will only mean the scope of the purge gets pushed wider. It would be interesting to know how far your PC readers, like mikeca, would be willing to say they would go now, before they have had the chance to see how things play out, checked their twitter feeds; checked the level of outrage on CNN, and then smugly adjusted their head to just below the height of the parapet to express astonishment that people could possibly hold they kind of views that everyone has known were wrong for at least five seconds.. How far do all these sensitive, triggered souls want to take it, and what would they do if others are prepared to take it further?

    In England there is a statue of Richard the Lionheart right outside the Houses of Parliament. How do good patriotic British Muslims feel when they see this Islamophobe given pride of place right outside their esteemed parliament? Down with it.

    There are statues of Queen Victoria all over Britain. How do black Britons and Indians feel when they see this symbol of Imperialism and colonialism in town centres around the UK? They need to go, as do all those streets and buidlings named after her.

    How are Muslims supposed to feel when they see one of their prophets, David, depicted in naked, blasphemous form? At the very least this statue needs to be removed from public view, as the Qataris in Berlin recently covered statues that they found offensive, or the way the Italians covered statues in Rome for the visit of the Iranian leader. Where they passively accept the mowing down of people, they will probably passively accept the mowing down of statues.

    All white men honoured with statues were arguably only able to achieve their place in society because they prevented the rise of more able women and people of colour. The money and culture that made their art and science possible was ultimately sourced from the slave trade, colonialism and the exploitation of nonwhite resources based on assumptions of white superiority and entitlement, and the holding of women as breeding stock and domestic slaves. Their presence is a constant reminder of the inequality and injustice that held sway for most of Western history, and which continues to define and shape us today.

    Doesn’t that last paragraph sound an entirely plausible thing to read in the Huffington post in 18 months time?

    • I’m reading up on this interesting blog that hints the Anglo prole world is tainted with what the author call ethno-nationalism. Basically Anglos are Nordics who are actually Germanics with a disease call Nordicism, that excludes people who share the same national identity, because they are phenotypically different. The same reason that the Nazis had to eradicate the Jews who were ethnically German.

      All of Europe is afflicted with Nordicism, but Northern and Eastern Euro countries are more severe and the British Isles is the most severe. Today’s White people aren’t true Celts, Romans and Slavs — they are tainted by these Germanic savages who call themselves as such.

      Furthermore, these Germanics do not spread culture to their conquered subjects, because they have no “culture”. They just breed, use and then exterminate the natives or exclude them. Certain French Canadians even wrote about the malaise coming from the Anglophone Canadians. They never liked the natives and only wanted to exploit them.

      https://goodnoos.wordpress.com/2013/09/07/how-nordics-infected-europe-with-racist-nationalism/

      And I think it’s true. I was in Spain in 2006 just 2 years after the Madrid bombings, and there was these right leaning groups that were spearheaded by Norwegian nationals who were living in Spain, protesting about the Muslim presence in Spain — despite the fact many Muslims in Spain want to do everything to feel welcome and respected in the country.

And the White populace are made to feel threatened by them. You’ll find Muslims drinking wine and their women wearing bikinis in Spain.

        Italians aren’t White enough to be in their White ethnostate, neither are Spaniards, probably White Hispanics like myself are excluded, given the fact that many Latin American Whites have traces of Amerindian ancestry. Many White Argentinians are actually Mestizos of varying degrees.

The Jews were expelled from that city in the middle ages, but they were very proud of their background and the name is being passed till forever. So I shste my last name with German Gentiles, but that’s the extend of it.

      • And yet you argue over this, and the point I was trying to make is that Nordic savages embrace ethno-nationalism based on things like racial purity, and not based on culture or ideology.

        The Germans managed to emancipate the Jews in the 18th century, where they were encouraged to assimilate and adopt gentile customs, only to be castigated in the 20th century by the rise of Nazism. You don’t find this kind of cycle in Spain, Italy or anyplace in Southern Europe. However, you find this reactionary stuff in certain Northern European corners, where Nordicism are adopted and in new world nations like the United States.

      • There was a Norwegian guy whom I got into an argument in Spain, when I said Spaniards may come from non-European origins. He got very angry and cites genetic studies that Spaniards have nothing in common with Semites, Sephardic Jews or Moors, and there was a very little mixing between the groups in Spain. Yet, in Spain, much of the narrative is that Spaniards are a mixed people from its interesting history. Just look at Francisco Franco who comes from Northern Spain. Nordic racists don’t believe in culture (because they don’t have any) only racial elements, and categorize people based on superiority-inferiority based on this.

        And after a day and night of partying and whoring they return to their apartments and plot mass murder on a truly horrendous scale.

        The Muslims in the Barcelona attack ware all “assimilated”. Living in a beautiful picturesque town in the Pyrenees. A town with plenty of work. Treated equally and fairly by the Catalan people, and what do they do in return. Plan a massive bomb attack. They van attack occurred only because their bomb making safe-house blew up the day before. The police discovered at least 4 gas canisters in the rubble, there may have been more. These bastards were planing a Timothy McVeigh, Oklahoma City type attack that would have killed hundreds and they were just days away from executing it. When the safe-house blew up they knew they had to act fast and so rented the van to mow down pedestrians.

        You don’t get Islam or Muslims JS. It is impossible to assimilate either Muslims or Islam. Sure, any individual Muslim may lie dormant for years, decades, even his family may lie so for generations, but one day he or his children or children’s children will pick up the Koran read it and a devilish light goes off in his feeble brain. All infidels must submit or be murdered. If the Muslim decides to act on this revelation all his sensual sins are pardoned and he is one with Allah, he is truly the elect now and Allah’s favorite. All these terrorists are “good” Muslims, notwithstanding a previous life of partying, discoing and whoring. Understand this.

        They could be converted to Christianity or atheism, but we consider it racist or something to encourage that.

        As long as they send their kids to Islamic religious school where they learn that the Koran is the true word of Allah and that Mohamed is the most perfect man whom all should emulate, some will discover the the real (or at least literal) meaning of the Koran and the Hadiths.

      • The relationship between genetics and ethnicity is actually incredibly interesting and unfortunately quite understudied, since it’s adjacent to so many radioactive topics, if it isn’t radioactive in its own right.

        As I mentioned here a few weeks ago, those quintessential Germans, the Prussians, were/are primarily the genetic descendants of Slavs (Copernicus was a Prussian) and Balts, who gradually assimilated over hundreds of years in a process that continued into the 20th century.

        On a genetic basis, the French are more “German” than Prussians were. But obviously the Prussians were much more culturally and even phenotypically German than the French. About that last part, it seems very very likely that while phenotype is primarily determined by genetics, it (and possibly other characteristics such as personality) also is largely determined by little-understood epigenetic environmental factors.

        For example, it’s an obvious observation that Ashkenazim, especially those whose families immigrated more recently, often share stereotypically Slavic features. But probably the most surprising recent discovery about Ashkenazi genetics is that they actually have very little Eastern European ancestry. (Which rather knocks the bottom out of Hitler’s racial theories, amongst others).

        There are many other cases where immigrant groups will tend to develop appearances strikingly similar to the majority to an extent that can’t be explained by interbreeding. Don Francisco (aka Mario Kreutzberger) of Sabado Gigante fame was born to two 100% German-Jewish parents shortly after they arrived in Chile, but he looks more Latin than most native Latin Americans:

        An even more extreme case in the same vein is Ricardo Montalbán, born to two palefaced 100% Spaniards, but whose own appearance means he’s ubiquitous on SJW lists of first nonwhite actor this or first interracial love scene that, and escapes their retroactive wrath for his borderline typecasting in “brownface” roles (probably because in his case the brownface was only figurative).

        And, a corollary of Ashkenazim having very little E. Euro ancestry is that they are far closer genetic relations to the Sephardim than had previously been thought, despite their significant differences in average appearance.

        I suspect that genetic sequencing of certain other groups in the Jewish diaspora (such as Central Asians and Indians[*]) would reveal that they likewise have much less local ancestry than their appearances would seem to clearly indicate.

        And that goes for diasporas in general. 19th and early 20th-century American nativists (and non-nativists too actually) thought that mass European immigration would significantly alter the average (white) American phenotype.

        But, even though the nativists failed in the main, and white Americans ultimately became majority-minority (i.e. ethnics grew to outnumber WASPs), the average white American phenotype has remained strikingly constant in every aspect other than height. Rather than altering Anglo appearances to look like immigrants, immigrants grew to look more Anglo.

        It’d be interesting to see an actual study, but I’d hypothesize with a great deal of confidence that, even adjusting for or excluding interbreeding, as examples, Scandinavian-Americans have considerably darker complexions and hair and are shorter than Scandinavian-Scandinavians, Sicilian-Americans have considerably lighter complexions and hair and are taller than Sicilian-Sicilians, and Irish-Americans have considerably darker complexions, are less likely to be redheads and are taller than Irish-Irish.

        [*] Though probably not Ethiopians, Yemenis or extinct groups like Khazars who were more likely later converts than lost tribes.

Furthermore, many culturally devoid, White Americans coming Greater America never cared much about non-whites in any regard. They don’t even considered Jews as White. I look at the identity politics coming from the left as a reactionary symptom of the right, and the alt-right is identity politics reacting to the identity politics of the left.

  12. If you remember Mao’s cultural revolution, a lot of it was not a revolution in history or fact but morality. The point is to take down ‘false idols’ and replace them with newer idols – ie magic negroes, people that worship magic negroes and/or people who sleep with magic negroes.

    The new idols will serve as reference points for the new Cult. And the Cult Creators can then extract money, power and women from their new followers.

    All cults are a mind control programme based on using moral suasion. Whites just happen to be most sensitive to moral suasion. Compare a textbook in the 1960s to today. About 50% of the history textbook today will be moral messaging rather than statements of fact.

    In East asia, most people are not religious due to (a) aspergers (b) low empathy (c) state removal of competing cults.

    Learn to see it as a cult, not an ideology or political action.

    The largest question is how to stop a jim jones cult. I believe the current period is the formation of a giant jim jones death cult for western whites. Eastern European whites have been more immune due to lower empathy/non english language media.
