Maricopa County burnished its reputation as the Trumpiest in America last weekend as hundreds of locals, including heavily armed militiamen, white nationalists and even a few elected officials, gathered to support the 45th president. The ensuing “March for Trump” was as horrifying as it sounds.

“I heard ‘lock her up, lock her up,’ and we still need to pursue that,” announced Arizona Congressman Anthony Kern; a nod to a prominent Trump campaign promise to imprison then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“If you don’t like it here, go to Syria, go to someplace else,” one attendee shouted.

“I don’t want ’em, as a veteran I don’t want ’em, let ’em go back home,” another seconded. “If they’ve got a problem, let Saudi Arabia take care of ’em.”

Some even dared to tell Dan Cohen of the The Real News Network how they’d make America great again now that Trump was in office. And Muslims weren’t the only religious minority unwelcomed.

“If she is Jewish, she should go back to her country,” a 13-year-old Trump supporter said of a protester.

“This is America, we don’t want Sharia Law,” one attendee explained. “Christian country,” he added.

One man insisted that Senator John McCain was a “secret communist.”

“I think there’s a lot there,” he said of Pizzagate, a deranged right-wing conspiracy theory that Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta was running a child prostitution ring out of a Washington, D.C. pizzeria. “Definitely enough to warrant an investigation.”

The day’s proceedings would grow uglier still.

“I just want to let them know that I can’t wait for the liberal genocide to begin,” an Oath Keeper shouted at a small group of protesters.

“That’s the way to make America great again,” he later told Cohen. “Liberals are destroying the country.”

Arab Blacks did enslave whites for centuries. The word "slave" comes from the word "slav." And yes we created beautiful civilizations afterward.

You ignore the fact that black Africans move HERE, all the time. Why are the moving here if we are so evil and racist and there is "institutionalized racism?" It's because the institutions actually favor functional black people, that's exactly what affirmative action is, an institutionalized policy of discriminating against white people. On average African Americans are the most prosperous of the entire African diaspora, including people in their native lands. You ignore the absolute tumult and violence that occurs when blacks get institutional power. See South Africa.
Baltimore city council https://goo.gl/images/1Dc7E9 Detroit city council https://goo.gl/images/13RUw2 Does that look like institutionalized racism to you? It's not, it's simply not.

I think you think that I have a high school education and I'm from the antebellum south. I'm not. I live in San Fransisco and I've attended the most far left universities you can find for more than a decade. I'm in academia. I am well acquainted with the idea of institutionalized racism, and I used to support this idea. I used to be an organizer against mass incarceration. I've probably read more bell hooks and Gloria Anzaldua than you have. I just don't think the facts support this worldview any longer. I looked for information that CHALLENGED my worldview, to see if it would stand up to challenge. The more I read, the more I realized it did not stand up to facts. You have the same opportunity and same responsibility.

I don't have an ignorance of history, or social forces. Far from it. I cannot google everything for you. I've supplied you with a lot of counterfactual information, but the rest is up to you if you are actually interested in truth. I don't want to hurt people and I don't want to treat people unfairly. I think telling black people (and white people) that black people's dysfunctional behavior is because of racism does a disservice to everyone. Racism exists, but it doesn't explain what we are seeing here. That Japanese for instance were recently interned in our country, and they are achieving very well. That doesn't mean I endorse multi-culturalism, but you need to test your hypotheses against other examples. Black people do worse in "anti-racist" school systems for instance, look at Berkeley high, a hot bed of anti-racist intersectional and feminist pedagogy for decades. Black students have the greatest achievement gap here than anywhere in the nation. Why is it that when this ideology gets hold black people achieve less and white people are less safe? I know you think your ideology favors "justice," but the functional outcomes of this ideology are the opposite.

If you want to improve the world for everyone, start with facts, not fear of the truth. Start with curiosity and challenge your moral assumptions. I'm going to end this here.

I very much love the Constitution, but I don't see a constitutional way to reverse demographic change. It was perhaps the Founders biggest mistake. I view Fascism as a way to re-establish what the original intent of the Founders wanted. Once an ethnostate is achieved then it will no longer be necessary

Remember, US citizens could only be white. Up until the civil war at least. After that they allowed blacks to become citizens. However, the biggest mistake was changing it so that any race can be a citizen.

I am an originalist in every sense. I want all non-Europeans to be deported to their lands of ancestry (with the exception of natives, who I would be fine with if they stayed here, as Americans allowed in the 1800s, though they did not particularly like them. I'm on the edge with blacks. They are detrimental to American and European society, but the Europeans brought blacks with them to America). I want only men to vote. I want there to be a de facto (not de jure) state religion of Christianity (since America had so many protestant denominations comprising it in its beginning, I will not set a denomination). I want many of the modern-day amendments to be reversed (so basically anything after the Civil War, but that would be quite damaging, so I may change my view to everything being alright provided it was passed before the end of Teddy Roosevelt's second term in office, and keeping the amendment prohibiting people from holding the presidential office more than twice since people no longer respect the founding fathers and must be bound by law instead of their own consciences). But the point is, every moment of our country's prosperity was when it was effectively a white ethnostate, though unofficially. Once we started letting in an abundance of nonwhites and afforded them even the smallest amount of political power, our country started going down the toilet.

So yes, an American constitutional republic would work perfectly in a white ethnostate. Since the American republic has become more corrupt and worsened with the amount of non-European whites in the country, surely having European whites alone would begin to solve problems.

(This could go under either FSTDT or RSTDT.)

The #Messiah @LouisFarrakhan explains "#Jacob and #Yakub: The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said it is the same.

And when Jacob wrestled with the angel, and prevailed, he was given a new name; and that name was #Israel.

Israel is a name that all White people can go up under, because they have prevailed over the darker people of the Earth. …

The White man is a grafted human out of The Original Black man.

In the Bible, "Genesis" is 4,004 B.C.: That’s just 6,000 years ago.

We have been on the planet for billions and trillions of years, brothers and sisters, before there ever was a thought of a White man. Now, Yakub was not a wicked man, he was a Scientist. According to Gen. 32:29-30, Jacob was on an island called "Peniel"; in the Book of Revelation 1:9, it’s called "Patmos."

But our History says it’s an island in the Aegean Sea called "Pelan."

From this island, where these White people were grafted: They came back into the Holy Land because that is where they left from; so, they were not strangers to the Holy Land, but they had been away from it for 600 years.

But then they started making trouble, telling lies, causing the people in the Holy Land to start fighting and killing one another … Like they are doing right now, in #Iraq, in #Afghanistan—but you’re doing it after the enemy came in." Minister #Farrakhan Saviours Day 17 pt2

Our grandparents held a lot of the same beliefs as the alt-right today. That's why it is inaccurate to label the alt-right "LITERAL NAZIS." They aren't.

They believe in the traditions of America, not some revisionist history from post-1965 public schools that America has always stood for unfettered immigration from the 3rd world to create cheap labor for our capitalist overlords.

The greatest generation openly advocated for an all white United States. They saw the United States as a white nation. To mischaracterize the people that handed you the greatest country in the world is not honoring them. It is revising history to serve your current morality, which serves neoliberal capitalism.

When you bring in immigrants in groups other than Europeans, high-Caste Indians or East Asians, you’re bringing in more crime and the kind of personalities and random street confrontations that comes from a population with more criminal tendencies – these same people who want to shut you up if you say anything unflattering about them.

You’re bringing in bloc voting on the basis of endless and never-satisfied grievances and the gibs. The result being that things like tax reform and cutting back regulations never gets dealt with, and the “lobbyists” or “deep state” or “career bureaucrats” or whatever you want to call them just pile on the regulations. Because nobody is voting on that basis; there’s no constituency for “cutting regulations” because all anyone is voting for is their free stuff. When was the last time you’ve heard a democrat, let alone a black democrat, make “cutting regulation” a big part of his platform?

And to top it all off, you’re bringing in low IQs and low employment and low wages, which results in bigger financial problems. Cities with a lot of blacks, like countries with a lot of blacks, face constant and chronic financial problems. Cities with a lot of Latin Americans, like their countries, are better than Africa, but still an enormous downgrade from Europe; inner city LA has more crime, more poverty, more regulations and taxes than white rural Nebraska; and the people there are less intellectual and are more likely to lash out at you if you start deconstructing their shibboleths.

If you want nuance, give-and-take and intellectual engagement, go to rural North Dakota. If you want pig-brained indoctrination, chanting and bloc-politics, go to San Francisco and Stanford. Or Mexico City or Kinshasa or Cairo.

East Asians tend to do very well so long as it is Europeans making the rules. The more East Asians “become who they are”, deviating from the western values embedded in their governments, and instead of investing in profitable industries but focus on propping up moribund community-corporations, the longer Japan will continue to stagnate with their consensus politics and consensus economy.

Regarding Slavs, I have more work to do. Why are their countries crappy? Their IQs aren’t especially low, and the Czechs, Poles and Russians are basically on par with Western Europe. It’s possible that they are like East Asians, in that they do relatively okay so long as it’s Western Europeans making the rules, but once in charge of their own countries, certain slavic pathologies become recursive. Or perhaps the Western v. Eastern European differences are all totally environmental – but I am of course heavily biased against that possibility.

I may be a big-tent white nationalist and so the idea of slavic equality appeals to that pan-European sentiment, the fact is that the slavs have been behind the west for a long time, and just saying “communism” begs the question of why communism appealed to them, and answering that with “because Russia was poorer than the west” just begs the question as to why Russia was poorer than the west, even if we assume that Russia being poorer is a satisfactory answer for why communism appealed to them more.

Bernardo Medina, 22, is Hispanic and was born in Montrose in May 1994. He and his parents moved to Mexico before his first birthday, which is where he spent much of his early life. But Medina moved back to the Western Slope when he was 18, settling in Gunnison.

On Jan. 27, 2015, he went to the Gunnison County Court for a sentencing hearing on a DUI guilty plea. Afterward, he was approached by two men later identified as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. When they asked who he was, he produced his Colorado ID showing he was indeed Bernardo Medina.

What happened over the next three days still remains largely unclear, even to the Crested Butte lawyer who filed the lawsuits, who described Medina’s ordeal as a “nightmare” in court filings.

The attorney, Andy Richmond, filed the two suits in late January in U.S. District Court of Colorado. One of them names the GEO Group, which operates the Aurora ICE facility where Medina eventually ended up after being taken across the state to various facilities.

The other was filed against at least nine ICE agents who either detained Medina in the first place or took part in his continued detainment, despite what Richmond says were Medina’s continued attempts to tell them he was a U.S. citizen.

“You don’t look like you were born in Montrose,” one of the agents told him, according to one of the suits. Richmond says his client was profiled on the basis of his race and ethnicity, writing that the statement was “a clear allusion to [Medina’s] Hispanic appearance."

All that aside, let’s get real. Let’s line the 3 races of men together here in the US:

1. Asian men.
2. White men.
3. Black men.

1. Least masculine.
2. In between.
3. Most masculine.*

*The scale is exactly the opposite for females and femininity, but that’s another post. Think about it.

Now, not saying that low masculinity is all that bad, I mean I got a Master’s Degree and I’m a hermit / egghead who sits around and reads books all the time. On top of that, lots of people think I’m gay or bi. So no offense Asian guys.

Asian men’s quite decent and civilized behavior is due to lower masculinity.

Black men’s extremely uncivilized and indecent behavior is due to their extreme masculinity. Look at the imprisonment/woman abuse, etc. rates.

However, women are Cavewomen when it comes to sex. She will choose a guy who seems more masculine. Hence, White women go for Black men and call us pussies, wimps and fags. Asian women in a society with White and Black men will see Asian men as too feminine and go for White guys instead. Black men will be so masculine that most Asian women will see them as some kind of animals from a jungle, totally uncivilized beasts.

A woman wants a man who is *somewhat* more masculine, but not so much that he’s a fuckin’ animal. A White man is perfect for an Asian woman. Somewhat more masculine than Asian guys, treats them better, yet low enough in masculinity as to be quite civilized.

Liberals don’t mildly dislike Asians; they have feelings of both resentment and condescension towards them because Asians don’t fit the liberal paradigm and Asians are genetically disposed to be less “pro-social”. It is the same reason as to why working class Whites get the same treatment, but the dislike of Asians coming from liberals is more apparent due to racial dynamics.

Oklahoma jails might not be a racially sensitive place for inmates but apparently, it isn’t for employees of the jail either.

Courtroom testimony in Tulsa, Oklahoma Monday revealed that in 2011 African-American staff at the Tulsa County jail were called “n*gronoids” or “n*groids” by former Sheriff Stanley Glanz, who resigned in 2015, the Daily Beast reported. The revelation is part of a wrongful death suit for 37-year-old Army veteran Elliott Williams, who was paralyzed on the floor of his cell pleading for help for days.

Glanz explained that he didn’t consider the term to be offensive for black inmates because the FBI used the word to describe blacks in the 1960s or 1970s. Court documents allege staff would mark an “N” or a “W” next to inmates’ names to indicate if they were black or white. Tulsa County was forced to settle six lawsuits thanks to Glanz’s words, totalling $1 million in legal fees and settlement payments.

Dan Smolen, the attorney for Williams’ estate, noticed the “N” vs. “W” indication on a memo (PDF) that was sent in 2006. The letters appeared beside “M” or “F” to indicate gender. According to the Daily Beast, it was this memo that was the smoking gun for all of the discrimination suits Glanz and Tulsa County faced.

Deposition transcripts from 2015, quotes Smolen asking Glanz, “How long did the sheriff’s office use that coding system to refer to their African-American employees?”

“Yeah, I don’t know,” Glanz replied. He confessed that the “N” stood for n*gronoid and went on to say that he doesn’t think the indication “might be offensive to an American-American employee.” He later chalked it up to being “police lingo.”

The Williams trial began Feb. 22 before an all-white jury after one person of color was dismissed to handle a family emergency.

Correctional Healthcare Companies Inc. was named as part of the lawsuit but has already settled with the Williams estate. Glanz and current sheriff, Vic Regalado are still fighting the case.

Williams had no criminal record and was arrested during a mental breakdown in an Owasso, Oklahoma hotel room after his wife left him. He was charged with misdemeanor obstruction in October 2011. He complained for days that he couldn’t move or get to water or food trays in his cell. A nurse with Correctional Healthcare Companies Inc. examined Williams via video feed monitoring his cell and told investigators that Williams was “faking” it. He ultimately died of a broken neck and medical examiners ruled he was dehydrated at the time of his death.

The clinic staff came under fire just weeks before Williams was allegedly killed. The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties found there was a “prevailing attitude of indifference among the clinic staff” at the jail, according the Daily Beast cited.

Experts testified last week that Williams’ death would have been prevented with medical care.

Today, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson addressed department staff, where he delivered a speech full of vague, banal platitudes.

At one point, Carson described the dreams held by immigrants who came to America, where he eventually referred to slaves as “immigrants” who worked “even harder for less” but still had big dreams for this country.

“There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less, but they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land,” he said.

Amira Jumaa is the first student to be expelled from the institution since it was founded in 1872, according to Haaretz. She reportedly was expelled in December in a decision by the university’s disciplinary committee, which is made up of students and professors, Haaretz reported, citing a report in the French weekly Nouvel Observateur.

[...]

The Facebook posts came to light in October while Jumaa worked as an intern at the French Consulate in New York as part of a school program. She was fired immediately by the consulate and suspended from the university pending an investigation.

The posts were exposed by a website called the Inglourious Basterds, whose stated goal is to expose anti-Semitism in social media.

“Friends, there is a big catch. She’s young, she’s rich, she’s jet set, she enjoys horseback riding, and she hates the Jews,” the site said in introducing Jumaa. According to the site, Jumaa liked a Facebook page called “I hate Israel.”

[...]

She wrote in one: “Yes you Jews deserve to learn these lessons. What did you expect, taking over people’s lands and killing them? Hugs?

Jumaa also wrote: “You don’t belong anywhere in this world — that’s why you guys are scums and rats and discriminated against wherever you are. Do not blame it on the poor Palestinians.

In response to being accused of racism, Jumaa wrote: “First of all you dispersed rat, i am not an immigrant from France. I am from Kuwait so my country can buy you and your parents and put you in ovens.

A Kent man was shot in his driveway Friday night by a man who allegedly told him to “Go back to your own country,” Kent Police said Saturday morning.

The victim, a 39-year-old follower of the Sikh religion, was in his driveway working on his vehicle when he was approached by a man he did not know.

Some sort of altercation followed, during which the victim reported that the suspect made the “Go back” statement.

The victim was then shot in the arm.

The suspect is described as a 6-foot-tall white man with a mask covering the lower half of his face. He had a stocky build and wore dark clothing.

“This investigation is a top priority for the Kent Police department and we have reached out to the FBI and other local law enforcement agencies,” Kent Police said in a statement.

Kent Police said they would update the public with more information late Saturday morning.

A self-proclaimed preschool teacher grabbed a megaphone and reportedly told a crowd during a protest against Republican President Donald Trump that “we need to start killing people” and “we need to start killing the White House.”

Wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt, the teacher unleashed the F-bomb-laced rant against whites, the White House, presidents, capitalism and police reportedly in Seattle on Saturday night.

“F*** white supremacy, f*** the U.S. empire, f*** your imperialist ass lives. That s**t gotta go,” the teacher said, before adding that white people need to give reparations to “black and indigenous people right now.”

“White people, give your f***ing money, your f***ing house, your f***ing property, we need it f***ing all!” the teacher continued, adding, “Pay the f*** up. Pay the f*** up. It ain’t just your f***ing time, it’s your f***ing money, and now your f***ing life is devoted to social change.”

That was just the warm-up.

“And we need to start killing people,” the teacher soon added. “First off, we need to start killing the White House. The White House must die. The White House, your f***ing White House, your f***ing presidents, they must go! F** the White House!”

The rapt crowd let loose cheers as another protester said: “Burn it!”

Before slamming the crowd for being “fixated” on an over-and-done election, the teacher actually criticized former President Barack Obama, noting he “deported so many f***ing people” and soon added that “capitalism is … f***ing racism.”

The teacher also urged the crowd to “throw that f***ing cop car in the garbage. That s**t has got to go. That s**t has got to go. F*** all that s**t.”

And for the finale, the teacher said “f*** your respectability. F*** you side-eyeing motherf***ers, ’cause I know … in the back of your f***ing head y’all got s***t to dismantle, whether it’s your motherf***ing patriarchy, your motherf***ing anti-blackness, anti-queerness … not recognizing black and brown trans, queer, women and femmes and non-binary people have motherf***ing led the f***ing way. So kiss their motherf***ing feet and give them your f***ing money and walk the f*** away after.”

I don't quite get your point. You don't have to look much farther than our nation's immigration policies pre-1960s to see clearly that we favored white immigrants over non-white. Of course there would exist cultural differences between white Americans, we all had to have come from Europe, which has many diverse cultures, but the beauty of being racially homogeneous meant that these cultures co-existed rather peacefully and we were able to make some pretty amazing strides. This wasn't some complex structure, it was simply natural to want a country that's racially homogeneous, that's how all societies organize.
The U.S is at its core white, that's how its been for the vast majority of its history. I do accept the fact that we certainly can allow non-whites to live here, blacks have been here for as long as whites have and the U.S is as much their home as it is ours. I just want a return to sanity, there is a clear trend among the left that we can't have a majority white population, that we need less and less white people. This entire movement is a reaction against that trend, some are far more extreme than I am. I don't consider myself a fascist, a monarchist or any other form of authoritarian. I'm more of a centrist than anything and I think our political system is great, though corrupted and in need of a cleaning. At the very least, we need to end policies that favor non-whites over whites and start enforcing border security, at the most we need to restrict immigration to allow in only high skill specialists and start incentivizing whites to marry more and have more children.

A former reporter for a news website was charged on Friday with making more than a half-dozen bomb threats against Jewish community centers, schools and a Jewish history museum, federal authorities said.

The man, Juan Thompson, 31, of St. Louis, made some of the threats using his own name and others implicating a former girlfriend as part of an effort to intimidate her, the authorities said in a federal complaint unsealed on Friday in Federal District Court in Manhattan.

In one threat, made on Feb. 1 against a Jewish school in Farmington Hills, Mich., the complaint says, Mr. Thompson claimed he had placed two bombs in the school and was “eager for Jewish newtown,” an apparent reference to the 2012 school massacre in Newtown, Conn., in which a gunman killed 20 students and six school employees.

The website The Intercept confirmed in a statement on Friday that Mr. Thompson worked for the publication for a little more than a year, until he was fired in January 2016 after it was discovered that he had fabricated sources and quotes in his articles.

The arrest came amid heightened tension involving more than 100 threats against Jewish groups that have been reported in dozens of states this year, resulting in a broad inquiry led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The threats, combined with vandalism at Jewish cemeteries, have prompted fears of an increase in anti-Semitism.

Mr. Thompson is not believed to be responsible for most of the threats against Jewish centers around the country, according to federal law enforcement officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was continuing.

Investigators are still trying to identify who is responsible for those threats, which the officials said were made using sophisticated technology to mask personal details, like identity and the origin of the internet-based calls.

The federal complaint, which was signed by Christopher Mills, an F.B.I. special agent, says Mr. Thompson’s threats were “part of a sustained campaign to harass and intimidate” the former girlfriend. The harassment began shortly after she ended their romantic relationship last July, the complaint says.

Mr. Thompson made at least eight threats against Jewish schools and community centers in New York, Dallas, Farmington Hills and San Diego, according to the complaint.

In a threat made on Feb. 22 to the Anti-Defamation League in New York, the complaint says, a caller, using an untraceable phone number and a tool that disguised the caller’s voice, said there was C-4, an explosive material, in the group’s New York office, and that it would be “detonated within one hour.” The office was immediately searched and no explosives were found.

The accusations against Mr. Thompson were announced on Friday by Preet Bharara, the United States attorney in Manhattan; William F. Sweeney Jr., head of the F.B.I.’s New York office; and James P. O’Neill, the New York police commissioner.

“Threats of violence targeting people and places based on religion or race — whatever the motivation — are unacceptable, un-American and criminal,” Mr. Bharara said in a statement. “We are committed to pursuing and prosecuting those who foment fear and hate through such criminal threats.”

The F.B.I. said that its director, James B. Comey, and top bureau officials had held a meeting on Friday with Jewish community leaders to discuss the recent increase in threats to Jewish institutions around the country, and that the investigation into the threats was “a top priority.”

Mr. Thompson was arrested on Friday in St. Louis, where a federal magistrate judge ordered him held without bond pending a detention hearing on Wednesday. Mr. Bharara’s office will seek to have Mr. Thompson, who is charged with one count of cyberstalking, brought to Manhattan to face prosecution, an office spokeswoman said.

Lucille G. Liggett, a federal public defender who represented Mr. Thompson in court on Friday, declined to comment when reached later in the day.

Mr. Thompson worked at The Intercept from November 2014 to January 2016, when he was dismissed, according to a statement by Betsy Reed, the news organization’s editor in chief.

In the statement, Ms. Reed said the organization was “horrified to learn” of Mr. Thompson’s arrest in connection with the bomb threats and cyberstalking allegations. “These actions are heinous and should be fully investigated and prosecuted,” she said.

Mr. Thompson began making bomb threats in January after harassing his former girlfriend for several months, according to the complaint. She obtained a New York State order of protection against him last August; it was renewed in October and again in December.

As part of the harassment, Mr. Thompson, without using his actual name, had sent emails and faxes to the woman’s employer that made false allegations about her, including that she was anti-Semitic, according to the complaint. He also sent her an anonymous email, attaching nude photographs of her and threatening to release them publicly.

The bomb threat against a Jewish history museum in Manhattan, which the authorities did not identify, was made on Jan. 28, the complaint says.

The phone threat against the Anti-Defamation League on Feb. 22 was preceded a day earlier by an email to the organization that said that the former girlfriend was “behind the bomb threats against jews” and that she would be making more threats.

At a news conference on Friday in New York, Oren Segal, director of the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, said Mr. Thompson had been on the organization’s radar since he was fired for fabricating quotes in articles.

“While the motive is unclear, the impact is crystal clear,” Mr. Segal said of the bomb threats Mr. Thompson is accused of making. “While I cannot speak about what is in Thompson’s mind or certainly in his heart, threatening Jewish institutions is an anti-Semitic act.”

Unfortunately, Asian women have a reputation of being easy in the west. So if a non-Asian guy is bored, doesn't want anything serious and just wants a wet dick? Then he's all about it because he can pull them easier. But if he wants a real partner, he wants more of a challenge to earn his respect. This is where Asian women's reputation really hurts them and puts them below non-Asian women.

In the United States Asian women are developing compact bubble butts on a thinner frame, and also dress nicely and carry themselves with more grace than White, Hispanic or Black women. Whether people here like it or not, men are turned on by that. Stop denying that it's true and recognize that it is a problem. Men of all races really are more attracted to Asian women. They're almost a commodity to show off, at this point. You guys also wrongly associate White men with MGTOW/Alt-Right/MRA, when a sizable chunk of Black and Hispanic men buy in to that general type shit as well. Especially Black men coming up out of the Black ghetto matriarchy.

[Comment under "Travellers hail 'historic day' over ethnic recognition"]

Parking your dirty caravan where you like and turning green fields to shite is not culture. They are a failed people because they refuse to integrate with society yet leech all its benefits, and they know it.

They deserve all the hate they get.

A Polish member of the European Parliament sparked outrage when he claimed that women "must" earn less than men in the workplace because they are "weaker, smaller and less intelligent".
Janusz Korwin-Mikke, the conservative and Eurosceptic politician from Warsaw, made the comments during Thursday debate in the Brussels Parliament about the gender pay gap in Europe and how the EU can address it, the Telegraph reported.

He said: "Women should earn less than men, because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent, and they must earn less! That's all".

Korwin-Mikke said his point was justified because there were no women in the "first 100 chess players".

The right-wing politician also been accused of racism in the past.

In July 2015, he was suspended from Parliament after giving a Nazi salute. Korwin-Mikke was criticised and suspended for 10 days from parliamentary activities and fined after giving a speech on migrants, describing them as "human garbage".
