Analysis of the shooting near Milo’s talk.

January 22nd, 2017

I examined the video frame by frame.

At nine seconds, Yellow Hat is walking swiftly and calmly through the crowd of thugs blocking access to Milo’s speech, and no one pays him any attention. He appears to be just another protester helping block access.

At 17 seconds Bald Man suddenly starts running towards him, and Yellow Hat abruptly starts backing away

At 19 seconds, a big yell goes up from the crowd. Yellow Hat appears to be being beaten up by the much larger Bald Man, or possibly more than one much larger man, and is fleeing, dodging, and zig zagging.

He is trying to evade Bald Man, and Bald Man is pursuing. It looks like some more people are joining in to cut off Yellow Hat’s escape.

At 26 seconds, Yellow hat is not facing towards Bald Man, who is right behind him in hot pursuit, but rather facing towards another man who appears to be moving into the path of Yellow Hat’s escape, so that Yellow Hat is trapped between Bald Man whom he is fleeing, and people moving into his path. Possibly several men are moving to intercept Yellow Hat. One man is advancing towards him hands outstretched as if to grab him, another hits him with a piece of cloth, perhaps a crumpled up banner. At 27 seconds a shot rings out. Bald Man falls, and Yellow hat reverses course, paying absolutely no attention to the fallen Bald Man, and retreating from the man he was facing when the shot was fired. Yellow Hat runs towards a group of left wing banners.

Either someone else shot Bald Man to take the pressure off Yellow Hat, or Yellow Hat shot Bald Man while glancing at him out of the corner of his eye in order to give himself a path of retreat. Yellow Hat did not look at Bald Man immediately before, during, or immediately after the shot, yet his reversal or course indicates he was aware that Bald Man had suddenly ceased to be a threat, and that he was now ignoring Bald Man because he had far more urgent problems.

Immediately after the shot, we see a big bunch of people with black masks over their heads and faces run from behind the camera towards the place where Bald Man was shot. Black masks being a pretty good indication of bad intent. Whether by accident or design, Bald Man had been chasing Yellow Hat towards the place the black masks appeared from. To the left of camera, everyone starts looking at the place the black masks came from, like there is something there much more important than a mere shooting.

In conclusion, leftie on leftie violence. Either Yellow Hat shot Bald Man in self defense, or someone else shot Bald Man to take the heat off Yellow Hat, fearing Yellow hat was about to suffer grave harm, possibly at the hands of the black masks. Probably Judean People’s Front versus the People’s Front of Judea. What do you expect when you hang out with violent thugs? Maybe everyone involved was a bad guy, but the one who got the bullet was the one who attacked first, unless a different bald man got popped in the confusion. Looks like justice on the face of it. Back in the sixties and early seventies I noticed that radical left organizations had a mysterious unfortunate mystery death rate similar to that of Clinton Associates.

Police fine with left wing violence

January 21st, 2017

Milo attempted to give a talk. Leftists arrived to blockade the talk and prevent people from entering. The blockade was allowed to succeed, in that only those who came early got in. People who merely arrived on time were prevented from entering.

Bricks, firecrackers and paint were thrown at officers and others — and then a gunshot rang out.

Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole said there were no arrests and no serious injuries other than the shooting on the UW campus. “Things went well,” she said

Evidently I am a bit old fashioned, but it seems to me that if bricks are thrown, and people are prevented from going where they wish by violence and the threat of violence, there damn well should have been some arrests.

If you allow violence, violence will escalate. Hence the shooting. My guess is that someone who was unaware of events was suspected of attempting to attend the meeting, probably wrongly, was attacked, and defended himself. Because that is what happens when some privileged people are allowed to engage in violence with impunity. The police presence is to not to keep ordinary people safe, but to enable impunity, to keep those who are attacking people safe.

Smoke grenades and such are merely providing the drama to entertain violent people. Violent people need to be arrested and removed from society.

97% of scientists support the scientific consensus on climate change

January 20th, 2017

And one of them is the Senior Fellow at the Alliance for Climate Education, who has just been charged with murdering a woman in what is obviously a race hate crime, though of course when white women get murdered, it does not count and nobody cares very much. And as marginal electorates in flyover country that have had large numbers of Syrian refugees dumped on them are discovering, when white women get raped it does not count and nobody cares very much.

Police are, of course, “mystified by the motive for this senseless killing”, even though his Twitter feed loudly proclaims his motive and intent over and over again. “The United States is a violent white supremacist settler empire whose only fate is annihilation”

Note that proclaiming hatred of white people and urging their extermination does not get you banned from Twitter, but complaining about other people proclaiming hatred and urging genocide will get you banned from Twitter.

Kind of young for being a senior fellow,

His qualifications for being extremely expert at climate change are latinx studies – the study of the politics of Hispanic transexuality.  An intersectional study.

We must bow before such eminent expertise.

Which I suspect is rather better than Michael Mann’s qualifications, since Michael Mann got one of those consolation prize degrees you get if you go to an high status university, take a hard science course, and cannot handle the hard science. Then they give you an “interdisciplinary degree”, sarcastically referred to as a “no discipline degree”.

Oops, I think transexuality is now a hate term. Sorry about that. It was not a hate term the day before yesterday. This Senior Fellow at the Alliance for Climate Education studies the politics of gender inclusive latins embedded in a gender binary. Or something like that. Whatever. It will change again tomorrow to catch more people for the hate crime of using the wrong term.

The Senior Fellow at the Alliance for Climate Education attacked and robbed three young white women in rapid succession, killing one of them. Each attack was a few blocks and a few hours from the previous attack. He was slightly known to the woman he murdered, which enabled him to get into her home, but not enough connection to provide any motive for murder, other than whiteness, heterosexuality, and vulnerability.

This is the young woman he murdered.

Emilie before she was murdered

She did not know that sexual deviants, like blacks, are dangerous.

We don’t know all the facts yet but it looks as if he just attacked any white heterosexual person that was smaller and weaker than he was and that he could get alone.

While your typical climate scientist, your typical 97 percenter, does not murder white women and white children, he uses language that justifies and rationalizes the murder of white people, and as we saw in 10:10 no pressure,

he would love to murder white people, especially white children, for climate science is merely ignorant hatred of the technological civilization white people built, just as tranny studies gender inclusive studies is merely ignorant hatred of heterosexuals. So the Senior Fellow at the Alliance for Climate Education is clearly well qualified, for he hates better than most. And in Academia today, hatred is all you need. Though you are of course supposed to call hatred love.

Hence Bernie Sanders rather revealing statement “We should make higher education free so that everyone can receive the benefits of higher education.” (Emphasis added). Maybe if everyone is qualified to receive higher education, it is not in fact all that beneficial any more.

The Senior Fellow at the Alliance for Climate Education is archetypical and completely representative of climate science and climate scientists, not in that the typical climate scientist will run around murdering women, but in that the motivation, reasoning, and intellectual capability of the typical climate scientist is more visible in the The Senior Fellow at the Alliance for Climate Education than in the rest of them.  The Senior Fellow at the Alliance for Climate Education is not typical, but archetypical.   His instance is closest to the platonic form of Climate Science.  An interdisciplinary degree is typical.  Intersectional studies is archetypical.   Hating white people is typical, indeed required.  Hating white people and wanting to murder white children is typical of climate science. Actually murdering white women is archetypical of climate science.

Deploraball totally cucked.

January 20th, 2017

Pepe banned from the Deploraball, which means the left gets to define what symbols mean, and what symbols are permitted.

If the left can ban Pepe from the Deploraball, they can make Deploraball attendees cheer someone in drag as “stunning and brave”, and the first Deploraball attendee to stop cheering loses his job, and will never be able to get another job.

The liberty of the slaves

January 19th, 2017

The Dark Enlightenment and neoreaction recommend reading old books, and taking them seriously as the works of civilizations whose knowledge we have lost and whose institutions and social order we no longer understand, reading them to find out what evils Chesterton’s fences once held back.

Thermidor has noticed a great gem in Seneca: That the modern conception of liberty is the liberty that the Romans allowed to slaves and small children, but not, however, to free adult male Roman citizens:

This needs to be added to the Canon:

It is perfectly natural, normal, and indeed, inevitable that those who studiously affect the manners and habits proper to slaves- whether they are self-aware of it or not- should get the type of rule they have coming to them, namely slavery. …

In this respect, the blue-pill mytho-history of Progress, with its story of a historical ascent from darkness and despotism to an enlightened age of Liberty under the “rule of law” is a mirror-image in which the facts of modern history appear in reverse. From the red-pilled point of view, the historical trajectory runs in the opposite direction. What actually happened is that Westerners, much like the clueless teenage girl who runs away from the home of her firm but loving parents only to end up becoming tattooed as property by some outlaw biker and tricked out on the streets with an arm and a pimp to feed, quit a life of moderate subjection under the intrinsically lawful and just auspices of throne and altar for a perhaps more exciting, but perilously more dangerous and in any case, degraded and dehumanized life- one that additionally turns out to be rather less than perfectly liberating when it is already too late to go back.

Open Letter to Scott Aaronson

January 19th, 2017

Obviously you are not going to read this, because even though you keep patting yourself on the back about how open minded you are and how you refrain from cutting off contact with those who disagree with you, how you love all of humanity and want to maximize utility, you are in fact isolated in a self imposed bubble and blinded by hatred, self imposed ignorance, crimestop, and ignorant prejudice, which hatred and ignorance will quite likely get both of us killed, you more likely to be killed than me, because I lie low, have more than one passport, and more than one identity, while you hang out with totalitarians even more murderous, cruel, hateful, and intolerant than yourself. You know this, and at the same time you refuse to know it. You say it, and you deny it.

You are a very very smart guy – except that crimestop makes you very stupid. You think yourself a very good person, but have sold your soul to evil that is likely to devour you and all of western civilization.

And here is a good example of self imposed ignorance, willful stupidity, and self imposed isolation from outside thought.

The emancipation of slaves, the end of dueling and blasphemy laws and the divine right of kings, women’s suffrage and participation in the workforce, gay marriage—all these strike me as crystal-clear examples of moral progress, as advances that will still be considered progress a thousand years from now, if there’s anyone around then to discuss such things.

Obviously I disagree strongly with all of those things. I hope that Trump will make himself King to be succeeded by his sons, and so does pretty much everyone who uses the phrase “God Emperor Trump”. Which is a lot of people, many of them very smart people. You may think you are right, but if you think they are crystal clear, you are just suffering from ignorance and self imposed stupidity. You will not listen, and will not understand, why some people argue we need a King, that we are suffering from chronic Kinglessness.

If gay marriage is crystal clear and will be recognized as crystal clear in a thousand years, why was it not crystal clear eight years ago? Answer me!

Take my favorite topic: Female emancipation. Men and women very much want to form families and want those families to last into their old age. My wife was eighteen in my eyes all her years, except near to the very end, and even though I sometimes have some pleasant youthful female companionship, I still sometimes find myself shaking and weeping when I remember my wife.

If you look at any successful family, no one is equal. Dad is in charge, mum picks up the socks. In principle, it is possible to form families in a society where men and women are equal, by freely contracting out of equality, but in practice, it is hard, and I see how hard it is for my sons. We have prisoners dilemma with few iterations, so the natural equilibrium between men and women is defect/defect. To prevent defect/defect, to ensure cooperate/cooperate, requires heavy handed coercive intervention by state, family, and society, and this heavy handed coercion necessarily bears far more heavily on women than on men. If you want a society where men and women know sexual love, or if you want a society which has above replacement total fertility rate, women just cannot be allowed to follow their pussies. And this requires a lot of supervision and coercion, primarily keeping women under control, rather than keeping men under control. For most women this requires that they be subject to the potential threat of physical discipline by the men in their lives. For a great many women, this requires that they be subject to the actuality of physical discipline by the men in their lives. So women should never have been emancipated, and some “violence against women” is legitimate, proper, and proportionate. Women, like children and dogs, need discipline and supervision and are never happy if they do not get them. A spoiled child, or a spoiled woman, or a spoiled dog, is never happy. The dog and the woman bark all the time.

And, in case you have not noticed, we still have blasphemy laws – except that these days you cannot blaspheme against magic Negroes. For reasons I have explained at length, all societies need blasphemy laws, and prohibiting people from blaspheming against something like holy oil or the flag, causes considerably less harm and suffering than prohibiting people from blaspheming against John Lewis. All your objections to Trump are objections to blasphemy. What is supposedly crystal clear to you is in fact something you do not believe in the slightest. Elsewhere I argue that we should venerate holy oil from Mount Athos because of all the things we might venerate, that is likely to cause the least collateral damage.

Seeking war with Russia

January 18th, 2017

I have been reading the rationales for actions and policies likely to lead to nuclear war with Russia, and they are incoherent, absurd, and make no sense. They are obviously post hoc rationalizations. The person posting wants war, and looks for justifications until he finds something that is socially acceptable and that he can pretend makes sense. They use Argumentum Ad Baculum (we need to blow up Russia or I will call you a ignoramus and a nazi and destroy your career), Argumentum ad Misericordiam (the guys we sent to destroy Aleppo and murder the Alawites are being bombed), Argumentum ad Ignorantiam (you cannot prove the Russian are not attacking our democracy), Argumentum ad Verecundiam (the CIA says so), Argumentum ad Hominem (Trump is stupid, hateful, and rapes women, therefore we need to go to war with Russia), and Non Sequitur (Hitler caused World War II by invading Poland, therefore we should go to war with Russia over the Ukraine).

Obviously, these people want war for some reason unspeakable and unthinkable even to themselves

Remember when Pussy Riot trashed a Russian Orthodox Cathedral, and the Russian government treated them like thieves and whores?

US government, professorial, and mainstream media reaction was that Pussy Riot is high status, and Christians are low status, therefore Christians should stop offending Pussy Riot, rather than that Pussy Riot should stop offending Christians – pretty much the same reaction as when left wingers riot to shut down right wingers.

Well if Russia treats people like Pussy Riot and the European University as low status, maybe they are low status, and if Pussy Riot and the European University are low status, then the people making arguments likely to lead to nuclear war with Russia are also low status, since they are the same sorts as Pussy Riot and the European University. Nuclear war with Russia would erase this threat to their status – assuming that US nuclear weapons are still mostly functional, which they believe but which I do not believe.

Daily Shoah doxed for not being sufficiently anti semitic

January 17th, 2017

If the Daily Shoah is insufficiently anti semitic and pro Hitler, who is sufficiently anti semitic and pro hitler?

If they doxed me for being insufficiently enthusiastic about wanting to rob and murder Jews in sufficient numbers, there would be some logic in that, but the Daily Shoah?

Those doxers are evil and crazy, they are our enemies – because none of us is sufficiently anti semitic.

The Daily Shoah are not my enemies, but my friends, and those who are their enemies, are my enemies. Whosoever goes after the Daily Shoah is likely to go after me.

The perils of government intervention in health care.

January 16th, 2017

It is mighty embarrassing if a sick person is turned away from hospital to die in the street because he has no money. So the kindly government insists that sick poor people be treated for free.

But if the hospital is going to treat poor people for free, then the hospital is going to besieged by people with carefully memorized symptoms for vague and difficult to treat diseases who show up looking for a bed, some food, and some human contact.

So, the next thing the government should do is empower to the hospital to turn away unwanted patients with a jab from a stun gun. But they don’t, because that looks kind of bad. But they do kind of sort of give the hospital some kind of monopoly power, and some power to hurry up patients who are taking too damned long to die. And then to the government’s surprise they find the hospital is mistreating and murdering affluent middle class patients. The government also finds that it still running up gigantic medical bills on bums, who are supposedly getting all sorts of extremely expensive medical treatment, though in fact they are getting this super expensive treatment only in the most superficial manner or not at all.

The hospital is rushing middle class patients out the door or into the morgue, while every corridor is piled high with incredibly expensive (and profitable) bums piled three to a urine soaked bed. (Yes, Canada, I am looking at you.)

When the government empowered the hospital to be quietly and furtively brutal and murderous, the intent was that the hospital only be brutal and murderous to the horde of bums besieging it – but they could not actually say that out loud, and if they had said it out loud would still find it difficult to get compliance.

So now the hospital is massively over treating bums, massively undertreating people who are genuinely ill with genuine diseases, and murdering any of its customers who are too sick and weak to protest. And medical costs are soaring.

So what should the government do?

Firstly, needs to hit who everyone lays down his head on a hospital bed with a high enough deductible that anyone who is not all that sick and who has to pay the deductible will not go near the hospital bed. It does not have to be all that high, does not need to be nearly as high as the Obamacare deductibles. Five hundred should do it. First thing that should happen on intake is a wallet inspection.

But suppose the patient does not have five hundred in his pocket, nor an acceptable credit card, and seems unlikely to pay. Then the nice friendly hospital for nice respectable middle class people sends him to the hospital for poor bums staffed by big ugly lesbian nurses with thick mustaches, where the first thing he meets is the death penal, with a big male guard holding stun gun, a baton, a taser, and a twelve gauge shotgun standing uncomfortably close beside him, and the death panel decides whether his treatment is likely to be cost effective.

Now at the nice friendly middle class hospital for nice middle class people we try to organize things so that the doctor and the hospital has to please the customer, if they are going to make some money, and the patient bears enough of the cost to scream bloody murder if overbilled or billed for nonexistent or barely provided services. Deductibles need to be high enough to hurt a bit, but not so high that they are, like Obamacare deductibles, frequently unpayable.

And at the hospital for poor bums, we provide all the wonders of socialist medicine so beloved by Bernie Sanders, modeled on the wonderful success of Cuban healthcare. </sarcasm>

If the hospital is in the business of handing out free beds and food, it is going to need to be able to whack undeserving customers with a baton, jab them with a stungun, and throw them into the street hard enough to bounce several times. On the other hand, you would probably prefer to send your elderly grandma to hospital that does not do that sort of thing. So we need to keep a good separation between the hospital that hands out freebies, and the hospital that does not hand out freebies.

Or, equivalently you need to have very different rules in place for treating the people who are getting free food and free beds, from treating the people who want to get out of hospital as soon as they can. You have to treat one lot pretty much the opposite of the other lot.

Progressive Jews divorce Israel and religious Jews.

German court calls torching a synagogue free speech against Israel. Arsonists get suspended sentences, which is to say, go unpunished.

If you say that the holocaust was not exactly as officially depicted, that is not free speech, but an act of hate. Molotov cocktails, however are OK.
