How We Got Corona’d . . . More than 50 Years Ago

Muslims have the guts to stand up for their freedom.

In Germany, large groups of them are defying orders to “shelter in place” – house arrest themselves – and “social distance.” They are attending prayer meetings – on the grounds that they have a right to pray and to gather since the praying and gathering is being done voluntarily, by those who wish to and choose to. No one is putting guns to anyone’s heads to attend these gatherings, which take place on private property.

They are giving a gigantic Colonel Bogey Salute to the government.

It’s too bad so many Americans are not only willing to give up their freedom but are demanding that guns be used to force others to give up theirs as well. It’s not enough for those who Fear The Virus to “shelter in place.”

Everyone must be forced to “shelter in place.”

And much more – and worse.

This is a psychological (and moral) problem but also another kind of problem, the roots of which go back more than 50 years to the hagiographed “civil rights” era – which fundamentally resulted in their destruction in principle back then and in fact today.

By destroying the right of free association.

Of course, that’s not how it’s presented – and to say otherwise is certain to result in a downpour of abuse for daring to say otherwise. But let’s look at the facts.

Before the Civil Rights Act was passed into law, it was not legal to murder anyone – of any color or either sex. Nor to take their property. Nor deny them due process of law in a legal proceeding, whether criminal or civil.

All Americans enjoyed these rights as a matter of law.

The Civil Rights act made new law. It became illegal to do as you liked with your property – which became the effective property of the government – of those people with titles and offices and men with guns to back them up –  who now let you possess it but only under certain terms and conditions, which you had to abide by in order to retain conditional use of it.

If you owned a home, you were no longer free to sell it to whomever you wished – or not –  on the basis of free exchange. You now had to sell it to someone you didn’t want to sell it to – for reasons of whatever, which used to be your right since it was after all your property. (Vestiges of this concept still exist in that we’re not yet forced to let random strangers lick our lolipops or jump into our cars and have us take them where’s their headed . . . yet)

The very strange idea that others who did not own your property – who had not paid for it – could now force you to sell it to people you didn’t want to sell it to became a legal requirement, with punishment attending for noncompliance.

Other people’s feelings trumped people’s rights.

It was easy to accomplish this by tugging on people’s sense of decency – a stock-in-trade of demagogues to manipulate useful idiots.

Most people would not refuse to sell a home to someone – or rent them an apartment – on account of their skin color. But some did.

This was certainly mean-spirited but people used to have the right to be that with their property, it being their property. As in not someone else’s property.

That concept was destroyed – in the name of “civil rights” – on the basis of hurt feelings.

The refusal to sell or transact business with someone doesn’t hurt them materially. They are free to sell/buy and do business with others, who are willing.  But it does hurt everyone when anyone can force you to do business with them – or force you to close your business.

Private property became effectively “public” – though the “public” wasn’t paying the mortgage or the taxes and its claim to ownership – asserted via control over the property – is an odd doctrine to a thinking brain.

And a dangerous one. To liberty.

 

Restaurants and so on became “public accommodations.” They were – and are – forced to serve those the owners preferred not to . . . or else. And to obey a now-endless litany of government commands about how they may serve customers as well as what they may not allow customers to do within, even if otherwise legal – such as smoke a cigarette.

Private clubs were – and are – forced to admit people they didn’t want in their clubs, even though no law forbade those people from forming their own clubs – just as people who preferred not to breath smoke were free to open or patronize restaurants or bars that chose to forbid it.

People were once free to associate. They no longer are.

Which brings us fast-forward 50-something years to the present and the “locking down” of America, the vitiation of every civil right, even to the degree of being forbidden to leave your home. None of this would not have been possible, probably, had the Civil Rights Act not vitiated the right to freedom of association – and gutted the concept of private property.

People would understand that a person who owns a restaurant or coffee shop is the owner of the place and by dint of that, he has the sole right to decide whether to close his business or not. It would be understood – and the principle of it respected in law – that so long as no one is being forced to enter the business nor prevented from leaving and is there purely on a voluntary, freely-associating basis, the government has absolutely no legitimate authority to intervene.

Much less forbid.

Those who dread Corona have every right to “shelter in place” in their homes and to close their businesses. Just as people who dread riding a motorcycle because they are terrified of the risk should not be forced to.

But this idea that other people’s fears – and feelings – entitles them to shred the rights of others to do as they wish with what its theirs – including their very persons – is a doctrine unworthy of a free country.

Which explains why America no longer is.

  1. Yet another anecdote of HYPOCRITICAL, power-tripping AGWs harassing LAW ABIDING, PEACEFUL CITIZENS for seemingly random reasons or stretched interpretations of already questionable “Gubmint” Fatwas…

    https://www.theblaze.com/news/dad-handcuffed-and-led-away-by-cops-in-front-of-6-year-old-daughter-for-violating-social-distancing?utm_source=theblaze-dailyAM&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily-Newsletter__AM%202020-04-09&utm_term=TheBlaze%20Daily%20AM%20-%20last%20270%20days

    Keep in mind this is a 30ish young man playing BY THEMSELVES in a park, with a sign saying that it’s (generally) closed, but OPEN to groups of four or less. No did these clown AGWs wear any PPE while accosting the poor young father, thereby, hypothetically, endangering he, his little “goil”, and THEMSELVES.

    If my son, about the same, and my granddaughter, whom is also six, were playing in a likewise manner in a park within walking distance of their home, and the local AGWs were harassing them, they have to deal with ME first. WTF has this country come to when a young father playing tee ball in the park is ANYTHING worth a “peace officer’s” attention?

    • Hi Doug,

      I expect – and hope – that this is going to result in people fighting back. Literally fighting, if it comes to that. Speaking just for me: I will not allow myself to be Hut! Hut! Hutted! without a fight. Which I am not looking for and wish desperately to avoid. But at the same time, I will not obey every order issuing from these tyrants until I am reduced to staying in my room like a good little boy.

  2. Not only was the Civil Rights Act a tyrannical theft of property rights, but it forced the bigots to hide. I prefer them exposed. In fact by forcing them to hide, we are compelled to do business with them because we can’t identify them. If any such Act was to be enforced, it should have been enforced against governments, since they were the driving force of segregation and discrimination to begin with, not private citizens.

    • JWK, that’s what I’ve always said about censorship.
      To force someone to change their words, does not change their thoughts.
      And what would give anyone the right to change their thoughts?

    • This is a great observation. Make something anti-PC, and people will hide the behavior. You may be routinely doing business with someone who would love to see you dead, and you don’t know it. Maybe they spit on your sandwich every time you buy one.

      Allow free expression and free association, and you can decide who to associate and do business with. There was never any truer expression than “The road to hell is paved with good intentions”. We see it every day. There are some who know what their ends are, but most actually think they are improving things, and don’t realize where they are taking us until far too late.

      • We know WHAT TYPE not only spits on your food when working in a restaurants, but SOME of their more strident activist BRAGGED about it.

  3. This is straight from the CDC:

    COVID-19 Alert No. 2March 24, 2020 New ICD code introduced for COVID-19 deathsThis email is to alert you that a newly-introduced ICD code has been implemented to accurately capture mortality data for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) on death certificates. Please read carefully and forward this email to the state statistical staff in your office who are involved in the preparation of mortality data, as well as others who may receive questions when the data are released. What is the new code? The new ICD code for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is U07.1, and below is how it will appear in formal tabular list format. U07.1 COVID-19Excludes: Coronavirus infection, unspecified site (B34.2) Severe acute respiratory syndrome [SARS], unspecified (U04.9) The WHO has provided a second code, U07.2, for clinical or epidemiological diagnosis of COVID-19 where a laboratory confirmation is inconclusive or not available. Because laboratory test results are not typically reported on death certificates in the U.S., NCHS is not planning to implement U07.2 for mortality statistics. When will it be implemented? Immediately. Will COVID-19 be the underlying cause? The underlying cause depends upon what and where conditions are reported on the death certificate. However, the rules for coding and selection of the underlying cause of death are expected to result in COVID-19 being the underlying cause more often than not. What happens if certifiers report terms other than the suggested terms? If a death certificate reports coronavirus without identifying a specific strain or explicitly specifying that it is not COVID-19, NCHS will ask the states to follow up to verify whether or not the coronavirus was COVID-19. As long as the phrase used indicates the 2019 coronavirus strain, NCHS expects to assign the new code. However, it is preferable and more straightforward for certifiers to use the standard terminology (COVID-19). What happens if the terms reported on the death certificate indicate uncertainty? If the death certificate reports terms such as “probable COVID-19” or “likely COVID-19,” these terms would be assigned the new ICD code. It Is not likely that NCHS will follow up on these cases. If “pending COVID-19 testing” is reported on the death certificate, this would be considered a pending record. In this scenario, NCHS would expect to receive an updated record, since the code will likely result in R99. In this case, NCHS will ask the states to follow up to verify if test results confirmed that the decedent had COVID-19. Do I need to make any changes at the jurisdictional level to accommodate the new ICD code? Not necessarily, but you will want to confirm that your systems and programs do not behave as if U07.1 is an unknown code. Should “COVID-19” be reported on the death certificate only with a confirmed test?COVID-19 should be reported on the death certificate for all decedents where the disease caused or is assumed to have causedor contributed to death. Certifiers should include as much detail as possible based on their knowledge of the case, medical records, laboratory testing, etc. If the decedent had other chronic conditions such as COPD or asthma that may have also contributed, these conditions can be reported in Part II. (See attached Guidance for Certifying COVID-19 Deaths)Steven Schwartz, PhDDirector – Division of Vital StatisticsNational Center for Health Statistics3311 Toledo Rd | Hyattsville, MD

    Refer to the last paragraph in which the CDC approves of “guessing” in order to increase the COVID-19 numbers. Dishonest?? You make the call…

  4. Hey Eric,

    hope you (and everyone here) is well. A bit behind on my reading as been very busy with work, but glad that there are some out there who are still challenge the official narrative. What shocks me the most about this is that now governments are pushing these draconian laws “locking down” people and applying the force of the law (in the UK they are using drones to follow pensioners walking dogs in the middle of nowhere)….

    On the other hand they are actively suppressing the only things which can somewhat cure whatever is out there – say trying the malaria pills (which are easily available and cheap all over the world). Or promoting wearing masks – fine theres a shortage of the good ones but anything can be a mask at this stage, but government actively discourages. …. Or even the easy availability of testing. Here in the UK many companies export tests all over the world – but those tests apparently are’nt good enough for us (even if we want to pay for them ourselves) say the government…. Why ? perhaps theres more money to be made for some by letting this thing spread, shutting down the economy, getting state aid, and pushing vaccines….

    I think after this crisis – the corruption of western institutions will become blatantly obvious for the world to see.. In places like Singapore and South Korea they – they were able to bring the thing under control easily without huge shutdowns of the country by simple measures (like testing and the masks)…. in the west however they are knowingly avoiding the easy and obvious ways to control and just going for the most draconian measures…

  5. 100% spot on as usual, Eric! As an African American living in “da hood” (ugh!), I can safely say that the “civil rights” movement was (and still is) indeed a sham, to say the least. Growing up, I was always told that the lighter skinned variety were our enemies and that they must all pay for the crimes that a few of their ancestors have committed. For many years, I bought into this charade.

    I know I’ve already mentioned this a while back, but I think it’s worth repeating. Anyways, about 6 years ago at the height of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, two incidents stood out to me like a sore thumb. The first one was the shooting of Michael Brown, who attempted to rob a convenience store. The second was the death of Freddie Gray, who died whilst in police custody. Yeah, apparently Trayvon Martin’s death (the one that started the whole BLM thing) wasn’t important enough to me and flew right over my head lol, but I digress. Anywho, as I watched these two events unfold into protests and riots, I started asking myself why is it that the same people who have absolutely no problem robbing, shooting and killing each other suddenly go ape-shit when the other end of the spectrum does the same to them? Then it hit me! I soon realized that “equality” was not about…equality. Rather, a certain ethnic group felt “more equal than others”, as the pigs from Animal Farm would say. In other words, the vast majority of African Americans feel like they’re above everyone else because they have the “civil rights act” to protect them. And what do you think happens when a person/group feels protected? That’s right! They force everyone else to worship them. Add welfare and cheap/rent-free public housing to the mix (because once again, “equal rights”), and you’ll understand why most predominantly African American cities in the US are cesspits! Dole riders are simply less motivated to earn their keep, and they never appreciate what they have. After all, why work hard for something when you can simply use the government to force others to pay you just for existing?

    I could go on and on (and maybe even write a book one day) about the “civil rights” con, but I think you get the idea. Now that we’re well into the Covid “pandemic”, everyone’s rights are practically null and void because, “saaaaaaaaafety”.

    Still waiting for those nukes…

    • “ethnic group…” & the ethicslessness of the groping grouping is about. But, per the farm, some frottage is more sexy than others.

      Transpose bureau o’ land management matters (mmm,mmm good) to transportation safety authority matters to Hippocratic medical doctor matters to…any other gang, cuz it is all the same.

      The puffed up might makes right rite.

    • Hey Blue!

      Man, you must get it from all sides! The honkies probably patronize you; the ‘bruthas’ probably say you ain’t black; and as a Libertarian….you’re hated by all sides! A minority of a minority! I have a black friend who used to work in academia…..she’s a registered Republican, and thinks a lot like us- all of the liberals (which virtually everyone at the university where she worked, was) HATED her- especially the feminists and blacks! She hated those people and all of the PC crap there so much, that she gave up her six-figure profession for blue-collar work! (Her degrees, which she spent most of her life acquiring- including a Ph.D., she found to be virtually useless outside of academia.

      • I knew a black lady at the local kennel club who is a self-proclaimed neo-Confederate. She made the news a while back for protesting at city hall because they had taken down the Mississippi flag.

        • Hi Handler,

          Everyone is enslaved by “civil rights” laws. A black guy who is a conservative Christian is forced to do business with people whose views are anathema to him. It’s despicable all around.

    • Thanks, bluegrey!

      Walter Williams taught me a lot about this; I had the privilege to meet him and talk with him back in the ’90s, whenI was a member of the editorial page staff of The Washington Times in DC. He has an earthy sensibility and is just an all-around good dude.

      • I love me some Walter E. I met him in the mid-90’s when he came to town and gave a speech at the local community college. It was always great to schedule him on the talk show I produced between 2002-2013.

        In light of all the GovCo contrived madness we see today I’m reminded of the time when he was talking about the 2008 government bailout of the banks, “If your house was on fire, would you call the arsonist that set the blaze to come help put it out?”

        Genius.

      • Walter Williams has the greatest knack for stating Libertarian/Anarchistic principles in such relatable, simple real-life terms, that I can’t imagine anyone who’s ever read him being able to muster the slightest objection to what he posits.

        I’ve corresponded with him via email in the past; he is amazingly humble.

        In a day when the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons are plastered all over the media and celebrated, it really pains me that a truly shining light like Mr. Williams is virtually unknown outside of Libertarian circles.

        He’s like the antidote to Barrass Obozo!

    • bluegrey6124, I don’t believe your story one bit!

      You claim to be ‘an African American living in “da hood”.” You then provide a diatribe about African Americans about how they “feel like they’re above everyone else,” that they live in “cesspits” and then refer to them as “Dole riders.” You also state that Freddie Gray died “whilst” in police custody.

      Your fraud is revealed by your word choice. Virtually nobody in the U.S. (let alone “da hood”) uses the words “whilst,” “cesspit” or “Dole.” Those words are much more typically used in Great Britain. In fact, in my lifetime in the U.S. I have never heard an African American utter the words “whilst” or “Dole,” and most certainly have never heard any American use the word “cesspit.”

      I ain’t buyin’ it bro!

      • Mr. Lib,

        Some people reject and rise above that which is around them, even if physically stuck amongst them. Many people here where I live would not believe that I’m from NY if it weren’t for my accent which gives it away. I say ‘cesspool’, but only because I come from a place where they are called that- ‘cesspit’ is actually the word I tend to see more commonly in Libertarian writings (Even by Eric, if memory serves)- so I would tend to think that BlueGrey is just well-read, and probably lives in a place where they have sewers instead of cesspools.

        • Thank you, Nunz! It’s unfortunate that a lot of folks still prefer being close-minded and forget that we’re all human beings, despite our ethnicity and origins.

          • Hey Blue,
            Ya know, I think no matter where we come from, those of us who can see the true injustices of the world and it’s tyranny, and reject those things and instead strive to seek something better, have all rejected the culture around us, and the things with which we were indoctrinated; the things which so many others just acquiesce to. We go our own way and don’t just conform to what the majority accept as the norm.

            Maybe Mr. Liberty will realize that we Libertarians are a unique culture unto ourselves, and that he, and you and I, and just about everyone who posts here have broken out of the molds cast for us- whether those molds are the ones made by our own cultures, locales, or the tyrants. So no surprise that we don’t fit those molds.

            And it’s a great thing when we find others who are so minded! I mean, someone could say that I mustn’t really be Italian, because I criticize and expose Catholicism and Guidos, etc.!

            None of us would be here, if we hand’t risen above that which we came from. And I’ll bet you’ve had more to overcome than many of us here.

      • Well, I guess that’s what happens when one is raised in a family of respect and common sense (on both sides). And FYI, I didn’t always live in “da hood”. In fact, I spent the majority of my childhood in SC after my mother passed and my grandmother (who also passed about 2 months ago) took custody of me and my brother. Then once I finished middle school, my brother and I moved back to NJ (where we were born) to live with my father. Yeah, don’t ask. So, yeah, I had a pretty crazy childhood. And yes, we’re still living together. However, once the Corona panic subsides, I’m going to start looking for another spot to live ’cause it’s getting a tad cramped in here. lol

        And as far as my choice of words, I believe that communication is crucial to society, so I try to be as clear and concise as possible. Hence why I’m also one of the few English speakers who actually appreciates the language. So, yeah, I’m definitely a rare breed.

        • South Carolina…hehe….. Always brings back stories my mother always told me of when she lived in (what was then) a small town there (Beaufort) in the 1940’s briefly! Being born and raised in the heart of NYC, she was a REAL minority there- as both other whites, AND the blacks, didn’t like Northerners!

          Of course, now thye place is full of NYers 🙁 (Showed my mother some Google Street View scenes from that town recently, she couldn’t believe how it had changed. Who’d have thunk it? In just 75 years!! :D)

      • Don’t be so certain.
        I’ve known some people who speak two versions of the english language because they live in those sort of neighborhoods. One version is the one they communicate with when they are safe around more intelligent people and the other is for use in the neighborhood. I’ve also experienced people who would talk among others like them in one way but then address me with the other form.

        I would expect “an African American living in “da hood”” who found his way to a libertarian website to write quite well and use terms you don’t hear in the neighborhood language. As to “dole” that’s a term one picks up either watching UK programming or reading in the intellectual circles we are all in. It’s not surprising. I have so many UK terms in my head that I use from reading UK car magazines and top gear on TV alone… never mind as a teen watching Dr. Who and Benny Hill.

        • Heck, “dole” used to be quite common in this country (Before everyone was actually on it!)- I’ve used the term so long, I can’t ever remember not using it. As far as I remember, back when there were still conservatives in NY, that’s how they referred to it. I know I’ve used it plenty of times right here on this site!

          Now if BlueGrewy starts referring to trucks as “lorries”…..we may have a problem! 😀

          Marge Simpson: “Remember, in England they call an elevatore a lift, a line a queue, and botulism steak and kidney pie”.

          Hey, if BG reads LRC, he’s probably read a ton of GuardianUK and DailyMail articles from across the pond, too!

    • Your perspective, bluegrey, is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. Good to know that common sense and American values of self-reliance and respect for the other guy is not a respecter of color, creed, ethnicity, and so on, but I never doubted that it was.

      And yes, there’s a whole of lot of race-baiting going on, and WHOM, in the end, REALLY pays the price? Certainly not the pontificating “Limousine Liberals”, safe with their ARMED bodyguards behind walled, GUARDED estates, with the local cops paid off to look the other way for whatever draconian and 2nd-amendment violating firearms laws they don’t both to observe themselves.

      What do you think, sir, of one Marc Robinson, famed a while back for “I AM the MAJORITY?”

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDSwEHRQM7w

    • Bluegrey, with your unique perspective, ghost-writers should be flooding your email inbox, if I were one, I’d sense one colossal hit in the making…which would also do this country, let alone “Da Hood” some huge benefit. Maybe Eric with his journalistic credentials can steer someone he’d trust your way!

  6. I’d say it *more* effectively made “your” property the “government’s” property.

    Because “citizens” are already property, do not own themselves.

    But…governments are, & always have been property, too – those institutional devices, tools – weapons — are owned, not owners.

    Free country is, has always been, an oxymoron.

    • A CITIZEN is a part “owner” of his government which in turn is accountable to HIM.

      A “Serf”, or “Subject”, is OWNED by the government and the accountability goes UP, but never DOWN.

      Which version do you think the Founding Fathers intended, and which do you think we have TODAY?

      • So a sit’zen can sell, or rent\lease, its sliver of gov? (Or, just what is the weasel in the wiggles ya’ got enclosing “owner”?)

        The founding fookers liked the version that had them supplanting a king.

        And damn, they rented some talented fable-myth/hypnotist slaves, too! Just look how desperately long those old fairy stories have been clung to.

  7. Hi Eric,

    The Civil Rights Act didn’t cause the current Coronavirus Jailed In Place bullshit. It was, at most, a symptom of an underlying and ongoing ideological shift. All these would be dictators violating our right to decide what risks to assume were voted into office. In Burlington, Vermont they are using law enforcement to fine people who stray from their de facto house arrest. Not coincidentally, one of their Senators is an unrepentant open socialist running for president and getting a startlingly high percent of the vote.

    Out here in the exurbs of Texas, we hardly ever see any law enforcement at all, much less them pulling us over and warning us to go home – or else.

    Change the ideology, and change what is possible to inflict on the citizenry.

  8. Yes, it really does, doesn’t it Mike. I’ve been telling people for years that we’re heading for a global East Germany. Former ex-East German officials were jealous over the surveillance state we’d created since 911.

    It’s interesting that the government is now running radio ads lecturing people on not believing or trusting anything that they see/read/hear other than what’s from “official sources including .gov sites. Seems to me that they’re losing the PR battle on this.

    Otherwise, they talk about “testing,” but so what. So anyone with the sniffles, literally, goes to a hospital and gets “tested” and now it’s global issue.

    I’ve never seen such a bunch of weak-minded people as exist today in America. Unless everyone gets a paycheck regardless of whether or not they actually do any work, a participation ribbon for everything that they do otherwise, along with instant redress to their heart’s content for every microaggression levied in their direction, there’s hell to pay.

    Then of course we can only sit back and laugh at things like obvious men competing in womens’ sports, winning, with women (the most supportive demographic of trans-whatever) becoming the most upset.

    Sometimes I think we need a good and real humanitarian crisis to get people refocused on reality. Work ethic needs to make a reappearance and not be equated with shuffling money around via a keyboard and confusing wealth with actual hard work.

    Our marvelous society is so out-of-whack in so many ways I often think that the only correction that will work is all but a complete reset.

    • I’ve been saying all along, take heed of an otherwise rather forgettable sequel to the original Planet of the Apes movie, the third one in the original installment of five, where a drive-in once played all in sequence with the tagline, “Go Ape!”. In that one, “Escape” from the POTA, Cornelius and Zira, the enlightened chimpanzee scientist couple whom originally befriend Col. George Taylor, Mr. “Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty Ape!”, have, with a precious scientific genius, a fellow chimp by the name of Dr. Milo (the late Sal Mineo), recovered Taylor’s spacecraft, and, just ahead of Earth being blown to bits, ironically, by Taylor himself (and not Marvin the Martian’s Pu-236 “explosive space modul-la-tor!”), launch it, with the explosion somehow thrusting them back to the year 1973, where they land just off the SoCal coast near Camp Pendleton. As Dr. Milo, reminding his fellow “Ape-o-Nauts” that apes did not, in this time period, speak, recommended that they likewise remain mute, so they’re taken to the Los Angeles Zoo, and placed in the infirmary, where careless on the other genius’ part results in him being strangled to death by a morose gorilla. Eventually, the surviving chimp couple reveal their intelligence and ability to speak to the two human scientists trying to figure out how they could have controlled the spacecraft, and their secret gets out in a public news conference. When the talkative Zira blurts out that they have come from the future, the “e-e-e-vul” German scientist, Dr. Otto Hasslein (Eric Braeden, recognizable to fans of the old TV series “The Rat Patrol”), adviser to the President (William Windom), whom had come up with the so-called “Hasslein Curve” which explained the ability to travel not only interstellar distances but also TIME, believes her, saying it was the only plausible explanation.

      Later on, after a brief whirlwind publicity tour, Dr. Hasslein confers with the President, and recommends further, more intensive interrogation by CIA experts, and recommends that the ape fetus that Zira is carrying be aborted, and she and her husband Cornelius be “humanely” sterilized to prevent not only them producing more intelligent, speaking children, but said offspring could mate with present-day chimps and still produce more intelligence offspring, whom constitute a threat to the human race. The President points out that he was reluctant to take such brutal measures, and points out that King Herod had infamously tried that, and Jesus survived. Dr. Hasslein’s response:

      “With due respect, Mr. President, King Herod lacked OUR facilities.”

  9. Eric:
    The sad part is that the overwhelming majority of Americans (all but about 250 of us free-thinking folks), haven’t the slightest intellectual ability to understand your point, because any critical thinking skills that they might have been able to develop were snuffed out early on in life in public school and through steady doses of television/social media. Their groupthink reaction can only be to accuse you of being racist.

    • I’ll second that, Mr. Liberty!

      To further prove your point, I once conducted a little eggsperiment on a general public forum (Topix- when it was still extant).

      I stood up for some Mexican migrant workers who had been suspected of killing someone whom they found dead in a field, and reported. Various circumstances made it clear that they clearly weren’t guilty- so I defended them on the forum, and thoroughly explained why they couldn’t be guilty (and it turned out, they weren’t), but I made sure to use every politically incorrect term when referring to the Mexicans (“The beaners…..spics….taco-eaters….wetbacks” etc.) and of course EVERYONE jumped on me and called me “racist” and dismissed what I said, even though I was clearly defending the human piñatas- and would strive against me….but rarely said a word against anyone who assumed that the Mexicans were guilty, as long as they used politically-correct terminology.

      THAT says it all. It’s scary. It’s all about what they’ve been trained to accept, and reactionism vs. actual thinking.

      I went down as being “a racist”, rather than being the one who stood up for the falsely-accused foreigners, and who actually stopped to analyze the details and the absurdity of the BS that the local media and pigs were spewing.

      We are truly living in the Dark Ages.

      And no one even stops to consider that this “Civil Rights” bullshit is not only a restriction of freedom of association; not only a restriction of private property (Who the hell are THEY to tell me who I can or can not rent my property to, or hire for my business, for any reason?!)….but that it is thought-control, for it out-laws “hate”. Who the hell are THEY to tell me that I can’t hate someone for any reason I so choose? Whether it be someone of my own kind because I think they’re a jerk, or am opposed to their worldview/philosophy, or don’t like the color of their eyes or hair, what business is it of THEIRS- and why does someone of a different ethnicity or race or “sexual orientation” get to demand that I like and accommodate them differently than I’d otherwise choose to? Who gave the overlords the power to decree such things? Not the Constitution, nor natural law, nor God’s Law, nor sanity….that’s for sure.

        • Amen, Bluegrey –

          You can force people to associate but that only increases social friction. If someone doesn’t like me – for whatever reason – the idea of making them do business with me is shameful… to me.And gives them a reason to dislike me. A legitimate one.

          When blacks and others were treated unfairly, sympathy followed – based on the injustice of treating people meanly, just because. That sort of thing doesn’t last – just as it didn’t take marching armies to end slavery in the UK and other places.

          But tell a man he must deal with people – any people – and you create enmity where none existed and if it did exist, would have dissipated.

          • The paradigm that officially ended slavery in the UK and its possessions were the rise of the British middle class, many of them recently from the muddled masses of the poor. Not simply a sense of justice, though there was that, they also didn’t care for the competition of coerced labor. Furthermore, the trouble with human livestock is the same as with the four-legged variety…even if there’s temporarily no productive use for them at the moment, you still have to care for them, it’s not like human beings just come with an “off” switch! Employees are, in effect, “rented slaves”, though the terms of the “rent” are met by MUTUAL consent. So, if the employer has less need for labor, he had either let go excess staff (or simply let attrition take its course as circumstances permit), reduce hours, or even furlough staff. Of course, if the temporary “vacation” from work and pay isn’t to their liking, the (former) employees can sell their services elsewhere. As the UK went into the Industrial Revolution “full steam” (pun intended), a slave labour force simply didn’t fit, hence the relative ease to do away with it.

            It should be pointed out that, up until the opening shots of the War of Confederate Independence, most of the states NORTH of Mason-Dixon line still had legal slavery, though quite a few were in the mode of gradually phasing it out (usually by the children of existing slaves be granted automatic manumission by age 21), AFAIK, Illinois had been “free” since its admission in 1818, and Pennsylvania had formally outlawed in by 1846. There were a few states where slavery was just as legal as in the antebellum South, but due to economic factors similar to what I’ve described for the UK, not widely practiced. It only continued in the South because the cash crop plantation economy made it worthwhile. Following the war, prominent Confederate Generals like Robert E. Lee, Pierre Tousand Beauregard, and Nathan Bedford Forrest all felt that the forced freeing of the slaves would prove to be the far betterment of ALL Southerners, as well as Southern whites would have to accept equality of black folks, and the sooner they did, the better. It’s especially ironic that Forrest is considered to be the founder of the KKK, though he left it and denounced it later in life. In fact, the LAST state to actually abolish slavery, by dint of the 13th Amendment (the other three “border” states had abolished slavery by the time the 13A was ratified) was Delaware, which was always firmly in the Union camp throughout the war.

            • & anytime I employ me, myself, & I only one, or two of us, are slaves.

              Silly.

              But otoh, there’s the even sillier notions of free will, captains of destiny, & Control being the besting adversary of nemesis Kaos.

              “Missed it by *that* much.” (That goes for Hasslein’s facilities, too.)

    • Hi Mister,

      I hope you’re wrong but fear you’re right. I’m willing to risk practically everything to take a stand against all of this, not because I am any kind of hero or even brave (I hate confrontations) but because I believe if we don’t we will have literally nothing left except a pitiful existence – controlled at every turn by a technocratic elite that brooks no dissent. We will have practically no economic or personal freedom to do anything – except what we are told. In which case, we are no longer living but merely allowed to remain alive and maybe not even that.

      • I do wonder if this things wasn’t engineered, or it’s simply a matter of not letting a crisis “go to waste”.

        Yes, Eric, the “cure”, the loss of personal freedoms, is far worse than what this virus can wreak upon us.

  10. One can include the use of vaccines in this mix as well.

    If vaccines are such sure-fire solutions to not getting viruses and diseases, and they are far from that in most cases and also cause auto-immune disorders, but then people should be free to choose or not choose to get a vaccine.

    After all, those choosing to get it should have absolutely nothing to worry about from those that do not. In fact, they are also free to rejoice when those that do not get them fall dead from whichever ailment-du-jour is the enemy-du-jour. Those not having gotten them would not complain.

    Meanwhile, those coming down with auto-immune disorders and other long-term ailments and diseases proven to be caused by vaccines would have no one to blame but themselves in the trade-off. … in a perfect world of course.

    Just sayin’.

  11. The truly sad thing is: I don’t hear anyone [out there] complaining about the destruction of their liberties….but I do hear tons of people complaining about “people not obeying the orders, and ‘endangering us all'”.

    This is why we can’t win. It’s not society vs. a bunch of tyrants, but rather, is a few reasonable and sane people vs. the worshipers of the god of statism. Instead of the average person having had enough, they dutifully commit economic suicide by closing their businesses, and will happily condemn and narc on anyone who dares not to do the same.

    • “I don’t hear anyone [out there] complaining about the destruction of their liberties”

      Because the media doesn’t give them equal time or for that matter any time. This is to give the impression everybody is for losing their jobs,,, house, cars, families, and possible starving a year or so down the road.
      You know,,, existing,,, not living.

      This link is about Sweden that has not closed up shop and is correctly recording the deaths. But it’s the cartoon that shows what is going on in the media that may help explain your question.

      https://www.anti-empire.com/sweden-is-recording-died-of-covid-19-and-died-with-covid-19-figures-seperately-why-isnt-everyone/

    • Hi Nunz, that’s the worst part of this BS, anyone is free to go ahead and imprison themselves if it makes them feel saaaaaaaafe, but leave everyone else the hell alone. It feels like we’ve gone through a wormhole and become East Germany, where half the population was snitching on the other half.

    • Nunzio,

      Where I am was nice today; it was high 60s and sunny for a time. You know what I saw? Lots and lots of motorcycles out and about! Most of them didn’t have saddle bags, and many were sport bikes; IOW, they weren’t making “essential” trips. I also saw an older man in his classic car at the gas station, while I was refueling my car from my completed NON-ESSENTIAL trip (I hit the local back roads again). There’s hope! There are people who see this as the BS that it is…

      • Hmmm….that makes me think, MM. I was out weed-eating for 4 hours earlier. The sprogs across the street were outside playing…but ya know- ya just made me realize: Not one motorcicle went by- which is very unusual for such a perfect day. Weird.

  12. Also – no one has a right to someone else’s labor. Which communism and FDR’s second bill of rights are all about. Say that to almost anyone and look at the blank cow stare you get back.

    • I wish YOU had been the judge for my second divorce. That miserable cunt seemed to think that I was such an asshole for daring to QUESTION and REBUT arguments as to why my then estranged (now thankfully “ex”) wife deserved 40% of my take-home pay, never mind her own ability to lay off the weed and the crank and get a fucking job for herself. That wouldn’t have eliminated even HALF of the alimony, had she gotten a job like her previous one, according to my attorney’s “Disso-Master” program, but any reduction helped. Never mind that had it been yours truly out of work or scraping by with a temporary “gig”, there’d be all sorts of inquiries going back as much as TEN years, to impute income, on the theory that I must be “dogging it” to evade support obligations. Funny how it only applies to the swinging dicks.

      Of course, she was just funneling it straight to the felon she shacked up with, whom, once he’d bled her dry, dumped her skanky ass. At least by then I had the sense to refuse her any reconciliation or any communication outside correspondence from my attorney.

  13. The ultimate violation of free association was Lincolns War and he is deified as a saint today. Thats when this country died.

    • Here’s the interesting thing Mark3, the side of the Confederacy fought the same essential battle that the Colonists fought during the Revolutionary War. A war against burdensome taxation for which they received nothing in return. Let’s not forget that not one of the states in the Confederacy voted for Lincoln, and their tax money vaporized with that loud sucking sound as they watched it leave the South for the northern states. Funny, upstate NY-ers get upset at the same thing re: their tax money all going downstate to NYC, but they’ll defend the premise of the Civil War, which was not slavery.

      Irony!

      And for even more irony, the Emanicipation Proclamation didn’t even enter the picture until about halfway through the war and only freed the slaves in the Confederacy. It did not free them in the Northern states.

      Greater irony is that every 4th of July we celebrate the latter while ignoring the former coupled with the fact that our own government and IRS make King George III look magnanimous.

      Moreover, the largest monument on the National Mall honors the biggest usurper of our Constitutional rights and arguably the biggest racist president we’ve ever had.

      Go figure. People will mindlessly change USA, USA, USA … without even so much as a passing thought to any of that.

      • Well written, “37”, but a few comments:

        (1) The Emancipation Proclamation, given after the Battle of Sharpsburg, MD, in 1862, was intended to induce the states “in rebellion” to give up and rejoin the Union by Jan 1, 1863, or risk having their slaves taken from them and freed once again under Union control. Like you noted, it did NOTHING to free slaves in the “Border” states.
        (2) Lincoln, just prior to his inauguration, actually backed the Corwin Amendment, which would have given the “Peculiar Institution” Constitutionally-protected status, i.e., only the states where it was still legal could abolish slavery, the Federal Government could NOT. “Dishonest Abe” did accurately point out that if the Confederate states really wanted to preserve slavery, their chances of doing so were better within the Union than outside of it.
        (3) Part of the reason for it was also a legal pretext to seize able-bodied male slaves for service in the Union Army. The war had not gone well for the Union, they’d expected to easily put down the rebellion and were finding it far more costly and difficult than they’d anticipated. Moreover, there was growing anti-war sentiment in the North, which Lincoln crushed by suspending habeas corpus (meaning he could have anyone jailed indefinitely w/o a trial, to silence them), stifling freedom of the press, and even persecuting political dissenters such as Congress VanLandingham of Ohio. The Union needed bodies, pure and simple, the superior generalship (about 75% of the active officers in the Army were from the South, and almost all of them, like Lee, resigned their commissions and joined the Confederate Army once their respective states seceded) and higher morale of the Confederates could only be overcome by superior numbers in the field and their cruel naval blockade. Blacks and recent Irish immigrants made up the bulk of the Union Army’s enlisted ranks by the time victory was achieved in 1865.

  14. This situation shall be seen for what it is….

    A terrorist attack.

    I’m sure many of you will agree….I ‘fear for my safety’….hmmmm, what precedents have been set around that little gem?

  15. This was the great failing of what passes for modern “Christianity” (Churchianity)- They let their culture, countries, religion, and freedom evaporate before their eyes without so much as a whimper- on the contrary, they gave it all away. By contrast, the Moozlims don’t take any crap- they defend their religion and culture and countries- be it from the most powerful militaries in the world, or petty local tyrants.

  16. Eric,

    Very few people chose to NOT associate in the South. And THAT is why the Jim Crow LAWS were enacted. Woolworth corporation didn’t say blacks could not eat at their lunch counters, the government did.

    Had these laws been challenged on the right of free association and had been struck down it would have been a good thing. However, as you point out the Civil Rights Act forced association. This is something that has intrigued me for some time. The Bill of Rights talks about freedom of speech and assembly in the first amendment. But, the fifth amendment says you also cannot be compelled to speak. Unfortunately it does not recognize the right to NOT assemble or associate.

    Unless, you look at the ninth amendment which essentially says there are many more rights that come from Our Creator and the cannot all be listed.

    Bottom line is this whole thing is part of what Strauss and Howe called the Fourth Turning. It will probably be another decade before this kidney stone of tyranny is passed.

    • We are in a war with an invisible enemy. Science is dictating how we fight and inevitably win the war. If some Brits exercised their rights to leave their house lights on during the blitzkrieg many more would have died in London. We need to beat this thing and we need to work together to do it. President Trump in my opinion is doing a fantastic job, but it will take time and effort and sacrifice to beat this enemy.

      • My God Eric, the greater good is more important than your right to be free to spread a disease. Oskar is right, we are in a war, we need to adjust our thinking. Go ahead and sit next someone with this disease, you will shake it off, but some old timer will die because you are some “libertarian”. Also I am old enough to remember the segregated water fountains and blacks sitting in the back of the bus. People were treated terribly. Minorities were discriminated against in housing, jobs, education,and just about every aspect of daily life. With out these laws, nothing would have improved. Sorry, you are just wrong.

        • Henry, many of the conditions you speak of, resulted from the actions of those in government, not from the general population. I grew up in the south. during that era, and while there was racism, it was amplified and focused by those in positions of power. As for the holy “greater good”, its an abstract and doesn’t exist. The so called Greater Good, is a fiction, used by collectivists to manipulate the ignorant and thoughtless, into doing things their way. The very foundation of any just system, must be the individual, and their rights AND responsibilities. At its very core, that system has only two principles. You own yourself, and you own your works. Not some times, not when its convenient for those in power, ALL the time. A just system naturally flows from that. Just as tyranny, naturally flows from focus on the Greater Good, and collectivism.

        • Henry,

          The “greater good”- as defined by whom – and how? By you? Think, man! You are arguing for unlimited, arbitrary power to herd and punish an entire population because “someone” might get sick.

          Should society also be shut down each year because of the season flu? Most people get it, recover from it. But some – the very old, for instance – develop pneumonia and die. Should the possibility of such a “threat” result in the locking down of the entire country?

          If not, why?

          PS: “Discrimination”- refusing to sell to someone because you don’t like his skin – may be irrational and mean, but it is he right of each us to freely associate – or not. Your view is that it’s ok to force people to associate – a doctrine that’s hard to beat as far as oppressing people is concerned.

      • Why do you believe a single thing your Sociopaths In Charge tell you? Ditto their Mockingbird Media? Ditto their Pharma owned “scientists”? They have lied to us so much and so often they deserve no attention, much less respect. From “remember the Maine” to “Iraq has weapons of mass destruction”, we have been constantly bombarded with deception. Yet you propose we kneel the God of government? Even if they were telling the truth this time, though highly unlikely, the total deaths in the US from this “virus”, projected by “experts” are 250k. Just so happens that’s less than the number who die every year in the US from medical error. So should we be avoiding a “virus” or doctors? Not to mention the deaths resulting from forced quarantine will far exceed those resulting from the virus. Suicide, murder, drug overdose, etc. will all increase. Not to mention the destruction of the economy in general. Last I checked, the death rate from not eating is 100%. Lick the boots of your master and leave me alone.

        • I love the “projected derath” numbers! -From the same people who told us that palm trees would be growing on Long Island by the year 2000 due to ‘Global Warming’. How’d THAT work out?……(2000-2010 Long Island actually had record snowfall!)

          From the same people who told us for 40 years that eggs, salt and butter were bad for us…..

          At least they finally took down the signs in Glacier National Park that said “These glaciers will be gone by 2020” (The signs are now gone…but the glacier is still there…)

    • True, while the Fifth Amendment, or any other, does not EXPLICITLY guarantee freedom of DIS-Association, there are the NINTH and TENTH Amendments. The Ninth spells out that a failure to specifically describe rights in the previous eight amendments doesn’t disparage or diminish any other rights, that is, the rights ALREADY exist, the Bill of Rights didn’t GRANT the, in fact, NOTHING was “Granted”. The Bill of Rights is a description of rights ALREADY presumed to exist and be “inalienable”, meaning, they cannot be taken away. The Tenth Amendment is even more to the point of “Strict Construction”, that is, powers not SPECIFICALLY delegated to the Federal Government are instead reserved for the several states, or, the PEOPLE.

      So, yes, there is freedom to NOT associate.

  17. The East German Stasi Policy in Vancouver Washington are looking in windows and if more than 6 people are seen in the private home they are writing fines with imprisonment if not paid.

    So even if you are complying you are in violation of orders.

    I didn’t get the memo on whether they declared marshal law yet or not?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6q_fLr7hCZE

    • RU fucking KIDDING me? Generally the maximum occupancy of a private residence is regulated by either a lease agreement, if rented, or usually by a CCR. Some towns do have occupancy limits for private residences, but six persons in, say, a typical three-bedroom home would hardly be actionable. Twenty-Five, yes, but not everyone lives like Russians recently off the plane from Moscow.

      And it’s “Martial” Law, not “Marshal”. A marshal is typically a Federal Peace Officer, and we have no such rank in the US Army or the Marine Corps. The equivalent would be the relatively few five-star generals or admirals we’ve had, like Pershing, MacArthur, Eisenhower, Bradley, Nimitz, and Hap Arnold. The only “Grand Marshall” equivalent we have on the books is our First President, George Washington, whom was actually a Lieutenant General as his highest rank in life. However, as quite a few officers surpassed him in rank over time, that seemed inappropriate, so in 1976, as part of the BiCentennial, a resolution was passed creating the Six-Star rank (“General of the Armies”) and giving Washington a posthumous promotion to it. Therefore, George Washington outranks every other US military officer and will for all time.

  18. Look! A baby deer!……

    Yes while you look there,,, they’re trampling your liberty over here.

    Anyone hear of H.R. 5717? No,,, well your not going to get it from MSM and your not going to get it from the sold out Alternative media.

    H.R. 5717 by ‘Rep’ (lol) Henry Johnson, Democrat. Introduced 1/30/2020

    “(a) In general.—Except otherwise provided in this section, it shall be unlawful for any individual who is not licensed under this section to knowingly purchase, acquire, or possess a firearm or ammunition.”

    So go on,,, believe the fake numbers from CDC from the likely fake virus that has a mortality rate 1/10 of the flu. Yea, I know,,, I’ve seen their lying numbers but while you are stuck in your house, abiding by no more than 10 people gathering and the putrid 6 foot social distance bs they are having the time of their life passing bs like this and who knows what else. And guess what,,, No protesting from you! Nope,,, Your Constitutional right to assembly is gone! along with everything else.

    Along with the constitution they took your livelihood. Most businesses will permanently close and after they stop your unemployment you will be f.ked!

    So keep it up… keep buying the bs. Keep acting like cattle. You will be justly rewarded.

    • PS
      This is what I wrote on several sites…. it won’t matter. These people believe corpgov is their god.

      And this article from Eric is spot on….

    • It gets worse…
      The CDC has mandated that patients who are positive for the CDC-19 virus and die from other causes have the death certificates list COVID-19 as the cause of death, even if death is due to other causes.

      The CDC has a dishonest, questionable agenda and as a government agency, is promoting more lies from the government.
      COVID-19 is a flu strain, nothing more, that is being used for political purposes, and to slow down the economy, hiding the massive bank fraud that is occurring right under our noses.
      Add to that, the powers that be see this as a good opportunity to “throw” the election, if not cancel it entirely.

      • The CDC is a lie factory.

        Several weeks ago they testified in federal court that none of the surveys that they’ve been saying have existed “proving” that vaccines are not linked to autism do not in fact exist.

        They stonewalled FOIA requests for year and were finally taken to court.

        So why is it that we should trust them again. Shamefully, many are. Only because the average American mind IS the TeeVee.

      • Not coincidentally, reported deaths from pneumonia have plummeted since January. The Covid-19 figures are fake, pure and simple.

  19. But Eric, you live in rural VA, not Brooklyn, LA, Philly, etc. where stay-at-home and social distancing is more of a burden.

    The person that contracts COVID, who stupidly congregated with others, may take a hospital bed that we, who wisely self-isolate, may need.

    • Hi Anon

      You can have my bed if it’s that important to you.

      My rights to associate with who I want, the right of assembly, the right of religion, the right to own firearms, right to OWN property are more important to me.

    • Anonymous,
      Your freedom means so little to you vs your own personal safety. What you mean is someone might take a hospital bed *you* need. You should shelter in place and follow orders until instructed otherwise.
      “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Ben Franklin

      “Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing .”
      John Stuart Mill

    • If you are self isolating (read, cowering in fear in a corner of your bedroom) as you say, then why would you need a hospital bed?

    • For that matter, I noticed that about HALF of the reported cases of infection and deaths thereof are from only TWO states, NJ and NY! How many of THOSE are within, say, 75 miles of Manhattan?

      Along with Gov. Andrew Cuomo going on Fox seemingly every goddamned day and begging for more “Freebies” from Uncle Sam, it’s trigger my inner (Elmer) Fudd, saying inside, “Deere’s sumtin’ skweewy goin’ on heah!” What IS the explanation? Lifestyle? Proximity? Contamination from outside traffic? Weather? Or are the numbers, like the obvious OPPOSITE numbers from Communist China (no one believes they’d contained the disease to the extent that they claim), being MANUFACTURED out of THIN AIR?

      Show me all the diseased, dead corpses of stricken “New Yawkers”, and I believe it. Else, I have my doubts..

      • All those people who go from apartment, to subway, to office…never getting any fresh air or sunlight- always in recirculated air….packed in tight with people fresh off the boat from Africa and India…..people crapping on the streets and in the subway*, sickly drug addicts everywhere…..vaccinations galore….constant high stress. The 9 years I lived in Queens, I used to get sick at least once a year…..there’s no way to avoid it. Seems like everyone there is constantly sick with something or other.

        NYC area and SF and LA- the highest concentration of third-world invaders…and also, coincidentally, the epicenters of Corona….

        [*+M<y friend who still lives in NY called me yesterday- He works for the NYC Transit "Authoriteh"- He saw a guy take a crap on the driver's seat of a bus!]

  20. While we’re on the subject, have you noticed that black people’s lives took an extremely dysfunctional turn after the Civil Rights Act?

    Many problems that plague the black community, from illegitimacy to crime, while still higher than average, were far lower in the Jim Crow era. What’s more, blacks were far more self reliant in the lines of other “minority” groups, such as Irish, Italians, Slavs, and Jews, as well as Hispanics and Asians, as in, “So your company won’t hire us, your bank won’t lend to us, or your business won’t serve us? OK, we’ll start our own, and hire and serve our own, and we’ll make it as good, if not better.” Today, it’s all about “gibs” and “free s—- from Whitey.”

    I also noticed that black culture, in terms of glorifying the “thug life” violence, sexual license, and materialism, especially in gangsta rap, with lyrics like “F—- B——s, get money” also took a bad turn.

    Now correlation does not mean causation, but I just couldn’t help but notice…

  21. “Most people would not refuse to sell a home to someone – or rent them an apartment – on account of their skin color. But some did.”

    Sixty years on, America has changed. But its best friend ever in all of history, Israel, has no equivalent to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or the Fair Housing Act of 1968.

    Housing and schools there remain ethnically segregated. It’s perfectly legal to refuse to rent or sell to buyers from the “wrong” ethnic group.

    Jim Crow might have died. But his conniving nephew Abdul Crow is still going strong in Tel Aviv. As the Shake ‘n Bake TV commercial used to go, “And we hay-ulped,” to the tune of $3.8 billion a year in extorted tribute.

    Makes ya proud, don’t it?

    • I came of age during the first so-called “civil-rights” movement and saw for myself the underhanded dealings, the demonization of decent, law-abiding whites, and in general, the deterioration of civil society.

      Almost all of the “civil-rights” workers and demonstration “handlers” were of one persuasion–New York based leftist communist jews. They cared not one wit about true “civil rights”, but were there to create hate and discontent among their black charges (who were too stupid or naive to see that they were being used to suborn and destroy legitimate government and society–a favorite communist tactic).

      These New York-based “carpetbaggers” fomented their hate and discontent, only to become future “civil-rights” attorneys, race-hustlers, and America-hating leftist communists…and the ADL and $PLC being invented.

      Let’s not forget that the NAACP was founded and run by leftist communist jews until blacks “got smart” in the 1970s and finally booted out their jewish communist “handlers”.

      Those of us whites who were in the middle of this “civil-rights” revolution had a saying: “Behind every negro, there is a jew”. No truer words were spoken.

      Let’s not forget their infestation of the nation’s education and entertainment systems, (which continues to the present day), in which they can spread their jewish supremacist poison.

      The so-called “non-violent civil-rights demonstrations” were anything but “non-violent”. Robberies, rapes, and other criminal acts were common, but never reported, as even the “mainstream media” was “in on the game” and conveniently turned off their cameras during the acts of violence. You see, even then,”creating crises” was a part of the agenda.

      The “beginning of the end” of America was the use of federal troops against white Americans, which, in itself was a violation of “posse comitatus”–the prohibition on the use of federal troops for domestic law enforcement purposes. As most whites were (and still are) law-abiding, they (we) were “steamrollered” by the use of federal troops to crush honest dissent.

      We never recovered from those unconstitutional actions. It was all downhill from there…

      • Wrong again, Annie. Of course that comes as no surprise to us who know what the white supremacist contingent is all about.

        You claim the NAACP was founded by “leftist communist Joooos”. However, the NAACP was founded by Mary White Ovington, Henry Moskowitz, William English Walling and Oswald Garrison Villard, as well as Negros such as W.E.B. Du Bois, Ida Wells-Barnett, Archibald Grimke and Mary Church Terrell. But – OH MY GOD!!! THERE IS A JOOOOOO IN THE LIST! THAT MEANS THE JOOOOOS DID IT AND THEY ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE!!!!!

        The rest of your screed is just as historically “accurate”.

        Please keep the laughs coming Annie! With what’s going on all around us now we can all use a good laugh at the expense of you aryan fuckwits!

        • Once again, our resident jew comes to the defense of his people. The NAACP WAS founded with jewish money. Blacks were put into nominal positions in order to establish credibility, BUT the jews were in control until the 1970s.
          I LIVED through the turbulent 1950s and 1960s and observed the machinations and dishonest dealings of the whole jew-run civil-rights movement for myself…
          Can you say the same??
          Shalom

          • Attributed to Voltaire:

            “If you want to know WHOM really runs a country, look no further than those you may not speak ill of, they are your TRUE masters.”

          • The Israeli IDF has a “public disinformation unit” (unit 8200) whose only goal is to counter truth–information that is detrimental to jewish interests. These are full-fledged military types that conduct their “warfare” from behind a computer.
            It is good to say that they are “losing the fight”. Their disinformation is constantly being discredited.

            • You’re saying that Jason is an “Astroturfer”, working for the Israeli Government. Even if that were so, he wouldn’t admit it. But it’s quite possible that he’s just like the rest of his ilk, hyper-sensitive and looking for a season to label any LEGITIMATE dissent with the label “Anti-Semite”. Like “racist”, it’s a “dernier cri”.

              Of course, he has had good things to say, so consider that before just denouncing him for his touchiness.

          • Robert, what you are looking for is whats known as Hasbara. It covers many psychological operations. Some overt, some covert. It has elements of propaganda, and elements of public diplomacy. Some elements are backed by the Israeli government, others by powerful friends of that government. You might wish to research the term yourself. But keep in mind, that many sources have been compromised, by pro and anti Israeli interests.

        • Actually, Jason, William English Walling (a socialist) and Henry Moskowitz were among the 3 main founderrs of the NAACP……
