Watermelon Man

Readers of a certain age will remember Godfrey Cambridge, a well-known (and quite funny) black comedian and actor who died of a heart attack at the age of 43. The peak of his career was in the 1960s and early ’70s.

All the fuss and cancelling over blackface in the past couple of years reminded me of Mr. Cambridge. In 1970 he starred in a strange movie called Watermelon Man, which was directed by Melvin Van Peebles and written by Herman Raucher (the author of The Summer of ’42). In the film Mr. Cambridge plays a bigoted white guy who wakes up one morning to discover he has turned into a negro.

The plot required that the actor appear in whiteface for the first scenes in the movie — a very unusual device in film or on the stage; I can’t recall any other examples. Mr. Cambridge was a talented man, and had no trouble simulating honkiness when the situation demanded it. But it must have been a bitch to get his makeup just right.

The question is: If Godfrey Cambridge were alive today, would he have to be cancelled?

We all know the answer: No, of course not.

Only white people (and possibly Jews, under certain circumstances) can be racists. Black, brown, yellow, red, puce, and green people get a free pass. They can hate, discriminate, and race-bait as much as they like, and white people just have to suck it up.

If you take any incident or process of “racism” ascribed to white people and reverse the races in it, making a mirror image of it, it’s not racism. It’s just white people getting their just comeuppance.

It doesn’t matter if a particular group of white people form a dwindling and persecuted minority, with no meaningful political power, as is the case in South Africa. They’re still white devils, and deserve whatever bad things happen to them.

Those are the rules of the game of WAYCISM. We all know them by now.

We conservatives, or race-realists, or deplorables, or whatever the heck we are, spend far too much time and energy pointing out this double standard. Everybody on both sides of the issue knows about it, and no amount of complaining is ever going to change it. I see so many spittle-flecked articles and op-eds detailing the ways in which “racism” is unfair to white people. And to what end? It’s wasted effort that could better be spent in other pursuits. We could spend the same amount of time brainstorming strategies to thwart the malign forces that are attempting to destroy what remains of Western Civilization.

There’s even a pseudo-scientific academic discipline justifying the idea that only whites can be racists. If I’m not mistaken, it’s called Critical Race Theory, and it employs dense technical jargon to devise lengthy analyses demonstrating that only whitey can be evil.

Hell on Earth in Scheveningen

Hell breaks out in Scheveningen: Shootings, violent outbreaks with blackjacks and massive disorder

by Tim Engelbart
August 11, 2020

During this Corona summer, Scheveningen has become something of the epicenter for all the chaos and violence in the country. Enforcement personnel have been beaten down with blackjacks, and on the pier, shot and stabbed. It is not funny: There have been several deaths.

The picturesque little coastal location is no longer what it once was. The fishing village, swallowed up by the Hague, is these days a paragon of violence, mass trampling of the Corona rules, and even murder. That is the conclusion one must come to after yesterday evening a Rotterdam youth, who was stabbed on the pier, died. There are also videos to be seen where grown men with drawn pistols run back and forth and shots are heard.

Things are going bad on the beach as well: When nobody is drowning in the sea, parking attendants are nearly knocked senseless with blackjacks because they simply monitor compliance with parking and Corona regulations. The beach is used as a public trash bin, and nature itself as an open-air campground. The government cannot control the total anarchy, as it appears from all images and reports.

Meanwhile, the chaos is so great, that the municipality has been forced to send in forest rangers to restore some calm. So, for now, say goodbye to the idea that the government in the Hague still owns the monopoly on violence. There are now enough groups of thugs who behave with impunity as if they were terrorists. No wonder that the de Mos Group [local political party in the Hague] now calls the once so lovely Scheveningen a “free state, an El Dorado for troublemakers who can go around undisturbed.” The PVV [Freedom Party] also thinks that this “last bastion of sobriety is going down the drain”, thanks to “weak left-wing administrators, including the VVD,” [People’ Party for Freedom and Democracy] says MP Machiel de Graaf: “Today is the last straw.”

It is very curious whether there is a Plan B today to restore peace in Scheveningen. But, given the complete mess it was yesterday, it seems sensible to be skeptical.

DING DONG!

Gerald Grosz is an Austrian politician for the BZÖ (Bündnis Zukunft Österreich, Alliance for the Future of Austria) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). His video rants are quite popular (see recent examples here and here).

In the following video Mr. Grosz mocks an unidentified citizen in the city of Graz who complained that the sound of church bells disturbs his sleep at night. The ethnicity of the frustrated insomniac is not specified, but the context of the sarcastic rant makes it clear that he’s a culture-enricher.

Of Burkas and Bare Bottoms

Once again, our Israeli correspondent MC weighs in on the Culture Wars.

Of Burkas and Bare Bottoms

by MC

Perhaps a measure of civilization is the amount of freedom we give our wives and daughters; freedom to live their own lives. Or do we lock them up for our own private consumption?

Anybody who has read A.J. Cronin’s Hatter’s Castle will remember the tyrannical father who throws his accidentally pregnant daughter on the street after her fiancé dies in the Tay Bridge railway disaster (1879). This was Victorian England, and women were held to higher moral standards than their menfolk. The idea of Eve as the intellectually inferior ‘temptress’ was still with us.

In the Garden of Eden, Eve got it all wrong and in so doing destroyed poor, poor Adam. But read it carefully and a different picture emerges; somebody (Adam most likely) told her not to even touch the tree, which the serpent was able to prove was a pack of lies and so erode confidence. The woman confesses that she was deceived by the serpent, Adam blames everybody but himself.

So why does society see Eve as the stupid tart when it was Adam’s arrogance that caused all the problems? Our churches and synagogues are still filled with women of faith and wisdom; it is the men who usually fail to stand up.

Barbaric male-dominated societies seem to be obsessed with ‘virginity’ and ‘purity’, and are ready to murder if they deem that their penile honour has been compromised.

I am not female, and I do not necessarily believe that recreational sex is a good thing, but it happens, especially when people have feelings for each other. Yet in a society where women have equal rights, then I have to accept that it is the woman’s absolute right to choose her sexual partner, and at a time or place of her choosing.

Provided, that is, she fully understands the risks involved. The same goes for the males, of course, and the risk of pregnancy, even despite precautions, is a shared responsibility.

Virginity as such, belongs solely to the girl or woman in question, and is not the plaything of any relative, male or otherwise. This can be very hard for a father to understand, even in this modern society.

However, young girls need to be protected, which means that their rights are violated, but that protection needs to be provided by parents and by society as a whole. Most 12-year-olds (and many 16-year-olds) are not capable of informed consent, and are thus ‘easy meat’ to any handsome male targeting them. The problem here is that girls can get pregnant, and are thus a special case in society, and the younger the girl, the more dangerous the pregnancy can be.

The Islamic habit of regarding unguarded children as fair game is thus a depraved and deplorable attack on the equality of women, and one must ask: where are the feminists demanding that Muslim rapists and sex-slavers be justly punished? But it’s all gone quiet over there because ‘racism’ trumps all.

In the 1980s professional soccer players wore short shorts. In the Victorian 1880s they were somewhat longer. But then along came the influence of Islam, and FIFA had to make rules about the length of shorts and the removal of tops. The players of 40 years ago would often exchange tops after a big game. It was innocent, but not to Islam…

Mocking the Rainbow Fish Will Get You Cancelled

I posted a video last night that described the cancellation by leftists of Lucy Eckhart, an Austrian cabaret artist who has worked for German TV. She has recently been the target of vicious attacks by Antifa and other German progressives.

Oz-Rita, who translated the clip below for subtitling, sends this introductory note:

This is possibly a companion piece to a video by a young German vlogger named “Neverforgetniki” that Vlad subtitled yesterday. It will show what cannot be said in Merkel’s Germany any longer, because her black-shirts (yes, Antifa is being OFFICIALLY paid by Merkel’s government) do not like it.

Lisa Eckhart (who really reminds me of the Berlin cabaret scene in the 1920s) came from the “Poetry Slam Szene”. I like her; she is sharp and subtle to the point that I wonder how the Antifa managed to get onto her. This little video is interesting even without the scandal that seems to be happening around her.

“Germany Has Degenerated Into the Dictatorship of the Left”

The Year of the Bat

The following essay by Seneca III brings to mind the words of W.B. Yeats: “Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;/Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world…”

The Year of the Bat

by Seneca III

“Great civilizations are not murdered. They commit suicide.” — Arnold J. Toynbee

Future historians will look back on 2020 as the year that all the acquisitive socio-political conspiracies of global power seekers and avaricious international corporate plutocrats were revealed in full by an experimental viroid that accidentally escaped from a Chinese Communist Party biowarfare laboratory and killed upwards of twenty million people.

Revelation followed upon revelation — we saw the deviant hordes of the morally, sexually and intellectually destitute arrive in force with banners flying. We saw in full light the machinating, murderous third-world kleptocrats that constitute the farce that is the ‘United Nations’ and the thugs of an organization that claims to be antifascist and yet is the epitome of fascism in all its violent savagery as its masked foot soldiers join at the hip with another equally fascist group marked by surfeit of melanin and a penchant for burning and looting, and to whom the lives of their own people appear not matter.

Before and behind them came more; the privileged middle-class disciples of a manipulated autistic child, the washed up and wannabe ‘celebrities’ riding on the coattails of this tide of effluent, and all the rest of the destructive infants who took the canticles of the ‘anthropogenic global warming’ hoaxers to be gospel.

Those future historians who are courageous enough to dig deep into the foetid, festering swamp of 21st century politics will look in horror upon an American political party and its camp followers (pun unintended) who conspired to unseat an elected President of the United States and, having failed, are now attempting to corrupt the democratic process in order to emplace a near-brain-dead geriatric with a yet to be revealed racist ‘woman of colour’ in tow who will be President in all but name.

On the Continent the ill-constructed, sclerotic European Union is eating its own tail as it tries to contain the now discontented masses rising up on its periphery. In Brussels, that iconic power and wealth defining construct known as the Berlaymont Building still stands and functions, but its ideological heartbeat stutters as if arrhythmic as its sustaining ideological ramparts begin to crumble within and without.

In the United Kingdom, we are blessed by a Border Force (colloquially, ‘Border Farce’) which can’t even turn back a few small rubber boatloads of invasive Muslim and Black savages.

Then, that great Office of State, the Home Office, does nothing but provide these predators and parasites with free luxury accommodation, cash benefits and food all paid for by the taxes raised from the indigenous net contributors who are struggling to sustain themselves from day to day in circumstances far less salubrious than those enjoyed by our ‘guests’.

Here, reading this extract from an official publication, we can see the reason why the HO acts this way:

In the following interview Mr. Paludan describes his recent convictions for “racism”, “hate”, and the like. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for conducting the interview and uploading the video:

Brazilian Social Media and the Deep State Conspire to Overthrow Jair Bolsonaro

Allan dos Santos is a journalist and the founder of the Terça Livre, a Brazilian website and online media outlet. In the following video Mr. Dos Santos talks about the efforts of the Brazilian Supreme Court, working in tandem with Facebook and other social media — apparently with the help of China and North Korea — to undo the election of President Jair Bolsonaro.

The article below from Terça Livre (also translated by José Atento) discusses the same issues that Mr. Dos Santos describes in the video:

Former employees accuse Google and Facebook of global censorship

An article by Bruno Rodrigues in the Brazilian online magazine Terça-Livre reported today (July 31st) they had access to a joint letter of complaint signed by a former Google employee and two other former Facebook employees addressed to members of the United States House Judiciary Committee accusing both platforms of running a censorship project called ‘Machine Learning Equity’, which they compared to a global pandemic.

The six-page document pointed to a series of accusations against social networks of censorship applied to conservatives or liberals “more aligned to the right.”

In the letter, Zach McElroy, a former Facebook content moderator, Zach Vorhies, a former Google software engineer, and Ryan Hartwig (photo), a former Google content creator, say censorship “is not just a domestic concern, “but a global pandemic that has infected the world in a major way.”

Wuhan Coronavirus: An Engine of Economic Destruction

The two videos below discuss the economic effects of the COVID-19 crisis from two very different points of view. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

In the first video, an unidentified German pundit on RT gives an outline of the economic effects of the coronavirus from an establishment perspective. What I find creepy is the footage of Merkel, Macron, and other political leaders mingling with each other in their masks, doing elbow-touches:

The second video is a rant by Gerald Grosz, an Austrian politician for the BZÖ (Bündnis Zukunft Österreich, Alliance for the Future of Austria) and the FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party). Mr. Grosz has a decidedly Coronadissident perspective:

There Will Be More Killings

The following article by Michael Copeland was originally published in May 2014 at LibertyGB.

There Will Be More Killings

by Michael Copeland

There will be more killings. It is an uncomfortable prospect, but it is there. We need to face it squarely and honestly. There is no mileage in shying away, cocooned in wishful thinking. When, in the 1930s, a politician sounded warnings about Mr. Hitler in Germany, nobody wanted to know. People were all too unwilling to contemplate yet further conflict so soon after the dreadful Great War. They were pre-occupied with raising their families in difficult circumstances, thinking about precious holidays, and trying to forget the ghastly experiences of twenty years earlier. Mr. Hitler was abroad: he did not concern them. The politician was left marginalized, a voice in the wilderness. He was Winston Churchill.

Soldier Lee Rigby was butchered in broad daylight in an Islamic jihad killing, the perpetrator explaining “The Koran forces us in Sura At Tawba…” Remember, the Koran is not arranged in date order. That “Sura”, or chapter, Chapter 9, being the latest, overrides and “abrogates” all the peaceful verses elsewhere. Verse 5 commands “Kill the unbelievers wherever you meet them.” The Woolwich killing was not “a betrayal of Islam”, as claimed in a monumental failure by David Cameron and Judge Sweeney. It was an obedient fulfillment of that command. “Muslims must kill non-believers wherever they are unless they convert to Islam,” said Ali Gomaa, Grand Mufti of Egypt, the highest Muslim religious authority in the world (Citizen Warrior, October 2010). He follows the same source text.

The Woolwich killer, Mujahid Abu Hamza, a convert to Islam, had studied his Koran: he listed on a piece of paper a selection of verses that authorised him, and handed it to an onlooker. Those commands are ongoing, “valid from eternity to eternity” (Sam Solomon, former professor of Sharia law), and “true … universal and trans-time” (North London Central Mosque). Because they are in the Koran they form part of Islamic law. One who denies any verse is to be killed (Manual of Islamic Law o8.7(7)). The killing can be carried out, vigilante style, by anyone without penalty “since it is killing someone who deserves to die” (Manual o8.4). “You people will never be safe,” said the killer, a warning repeated since by one of his fellows.

We can expect other Koran-fulfilling Muslims to be driving around with weapons in their cars. One such carload was discovered completely by chance when police stopped a car with Muslim Men in it one summer Saturday in 2012: the computer had alerted them it was uninsured. The car was impounded, but rather too casually left uninspected until the following Monday, when bombs, knives and guns were found in it.

The occupants had intended to jihad-bomb an English Defence League demonstration in Dewsbury, targeting Tommy Robinson, and using the weapons to attack those fleeing. The demonstration had ended early, so their purpose was unfulfilled. The car’s keeper had in fact remembered to insure the car: inadvertently he had mistyped the reference number in his application. Thus, quite by chance, a Boston Marathon-type jihad bombing was avoided, and, quite by another chance, the six jihad-bomb conspirators were discovered.

Let the Coronadissidents Come to Berlin

Last Saturday a huge crowd of demonstrators gathered in downtown Berlin to protest the government’s coronavirus restrictions. Police attempted to shut down the demonstration under the Infection Protection Act, but the crowd booed the police and resisted. The event was too large to be stopped forcibly.

The organizers said that a million people participated in the protest, while the mainstream media gave an estimate of 20,000. Even if the first number is an exaggeration, the second is obviously absurd, based on panoramic photos of the crowd.
