  1. Sam, your asinine comments on banking are so far off the mark you’ve even got me – who thinks he’s heard it all from the nutzi right – cringing.

    Think of what it would have done to the deflationary pressure our economy is under if instead of giving the banks all this money we gave it to the citizens.

    Deflationary pressure eh? That’s a novel take. Care to explain your economic reasoning? Most end-the-Fed-ers at least have the sense to accuse the Fed of fueling inflation (though they unjustifiably ascribe a ridiculous degree of economic harm to the practice).

  2. Sorry, Lew, but most people are only going to take away from that article the fact that a “philanthropist” is donating $3.5 million to rebuild slave quarters that are, factually, part of a specific narrative about American history. There’s no lie or manipulation going on there. He is also donating $6.5 million to refurbish and restore other parts of the home, and last year gave “$10 million gifts to both Jefferson’s Monticello estate and George Washington’s home at Mount Vernon.” Didn’t want to mention those parts, did you?

    Nothing was stopping some generous, non-Jewish guy or gal from donating and helping to restore our American historical monuments and history. We(all of us pro-Whites) have become, embarrassingly, like a vacuous void when it comes to this kind of lateral thinking and problem solving.

    You’ve epitomized in one example what people like me have been saying about Name-The-Jew fanatics for years and decades. You simply don’t understand human behavior and psychology like you think you do. You’ll twist and contort things to fit an agenda that seems to becomes less about actually helping White people in any capacity, and more about being able to find a Jew whenever and wherever it is convenient.

    I’d be willing to bet many more people could be swayed by a positive pro-White message if you were to have a story starting with:

    A White(Gentile) man is donating $$$$$$ to [insert nice pro-White message or cause here].

    Negative is all the Jewcentric activists have to give. It’s the main reason why they end up being surrounded by so many destitute loons and losers.

  3. Silver,

    I don’t see anybody claiming the Jewish issue is unimportant or that it should be sidelined.

  4. The Gish Gallop:

    Named for the debate tactic created by creationist shill Duane Gish, a Gish Gallop involves spewing so much bullshit in such a short span on that your opponent can’t address let alone counter all of it. To make matters worse a Gish Gallop will often have one or more ‘talking points’ that has a tiny core of truth to it, making the person rebutting it spend even more time debunking it in order to explain that, yes, it’s not totally false but the Galloper is distorting/misusing/misstating the actual situation. A true Gish Gallop generally has two traits.

    1) The factual and logical content of the Gish Gallop is pure bullshit and anybody knowledgeable and informed on the subject would recognize it as such almost instantly. That is, the Gish Gallop is designed to appeal to and deceive precisely those sorts of people who are most in need of honest factual education.

    2) The points are all ones that the Galloper either knows, or damn well should know, are totally bullshit. With the slimier users of the Gish Gallop, like Gish himself, its a near certainty that the points are chosen not just because the Galloper knows that they’re bullshit, but because the Galloper is deliberately trying to shovel as much bullshit into as small a space as possible in order to overwhelm his opponent with sheer volume and bamboozle any audience members with a facade of scholarly acumen and factual knowledge.

  5. Have you missed Celestial Time’s contributions?

    Hmm, okay well the last post was a bit over the top, at least as it relates to you. I can understand why you’d grow frustrated having to listen to those same accusations time and again.

    On the other hand, I think you really do need to learn to take criticism. Consider that link above. I think you’re well within your rights to suspect that the Jew in question wants to fuel white guilt, or to suspect that this factor outweighs any desire to reflect history more authentically. But suspicion is one thing and changing people’s minds is another.

    “Jew donates millions to rebuild Madison estate’s slave quarters.” Res ipsa loquitur, right? Well, no. It isn’t the home run you seem to think it is because in the minds of many there is a mountain load of plausible deniability there. When you double down and insist that the Jewish angle is far and away the most important aspect of such stories then you do less to draw attention to Jewish activities and more to confirm notions that “anti-semitism” is a real threat in society.

    This is an opportune moment to recycle an old favorite limerick of mine.

    There once was a man named Lew
    Who reduced everything to The Jew.
    He’d go hell-for-leather
    And never care whether
    Anything that he said wasn’t true.

    Overstatement? Of course. But now don’t go getting cross with me. It’s all in good fun see. The fact, however, remains: With Lews, you lose.

    Be glad to explain. The FED is attempting to inflate the dollar to STOP deflationary pressure, as I said. We are, no matter how much money is printed, in a deflationary era. Profits are declining and there’s not enough money to pay back debts incurred in better times. Deflationary. Some of the reasons are declining technology base. There’s only so many cars, TV’s, phones, etc. that can be owned at one time. A lot of technological items are over produced. Chinese overproduction has increased the deflationary pressure. Look at Japan they’ve been in the same boat for a long time. They’ve printed cash in amounts that dwarf our country and they’ve gotten zip growth from it.
    Notice many companies have billions in cash that they’re not investing because they don’t know what to invest in. That is deflationary. Apple reported that it had $158.8bn (£94.9bn) in cash and cash equivalents.

    My point was that the Fed gave trillions to the banks instead of the citizens who have to pay for it. Now you can write me a nice apology that I’m owed. Of course if you won’t believe me maybe I’ll try the old point towards authority.

    If all these people are wrong please explain why or better yet write them a letter and call them asinine. I’m sure a Man of such great knowledge as yourself will immediately cause them to pee their pants in fear. I’ll add everything else I said about banks is exactly correct also. If you disagree calling me names is not an appropriate response for an intelligent person. Please provide reasoning. If you are capable.

    Another thing we could push is Molten Salt Reactors. We invented the damn things now the Chinese are about to overtake us. They’re putting BIG money and man power into this. With MSR we could tell the Middle East to kiss our ass and make oil ourselves.
