Electing a New People in Detroit and California

As Jim Goad wrote, “If I don’t work I’ll starve. If I don’t write I’ll die.” I should be working now but I need to write.

I was in Detroit again a couple weeks ago and had a day free. Being the morbid fellow I am, I did the ruin tour. There’s no actual tour I know of, but I just went downtown and drove around.

It’s as bad as the pictures show. I didn’t see necessarily all the especially picturesque sites the professional photographers shoot, but I saw plenty. The most bizarre is the train station. The are plenty of burned out factories and mostly abandoned neighborhoods. Sometimes you see a row of nicely maintained houses, then a row of derelict houses, then a mostly cleared area with one house. Sometimes you see rough-looking houses that may or may not be occupied.

Part of the problem of Detroit is simple deindustrialization. Manufacturing seems to stay in one area for some decades, then relocate elsewhere. Upstate New York used to be a major industrial area, then most of the factories left. Industries and companies rise and fall. Transportation networks evolve- canals used to be important for moving goods around, but now we have the interstates. Populations change and age.

What is not disputable is capitalism’s unquenchable desire for cheap labor. Capitalism doesn’t need cheap labor, but it wants it, and what it wants it usually gets. The brilliant move of the left was to make immigration a civil rights issue in the 60’s. Since immigrants are by definition people who live in another country until given permission to come here, how can people applying for visas possess a civil right? And yet they do. Anyone interacting with the US government or any white American anywhere might be a victim of discrimination, and in fact in the leftist view by definition is. Civil rights is not so much a matter of protecting NAM Americans as it is punishing white Americans.

Immigration wasn’t a civil right in the 20’s, so after decades of mass immigration it was halted. Business in the North didn’t like that so the great migration of blacks to northern cities was initiated. With segregation in place, harm to whites was somewhat limited. But then harm to whites became the actual point, and whites were driven out of Detroit.

The situation is exactly analogous in California. Mexicans were brought in as cheap labor. For a long time there was not much conflict with the conservative whites who made up most of the state. Then harassing and getting rid of the conservative whites became the whole point. Compton went from blue-collar white to black to Mexican, but plenty of places have gone straight from blue-collar white to Mexican, such as Anaheim.

Being slavishly liberal doesn’t do any good- the aerospace workers of Anaheim were Republican (the constituents of “B-1 Bob” Dornan, replaced with great fanfare by Loretta Sanchez) but the whites of Detroit and Boston were liberal Democratic voters. All the same they were inconvenient, and in the way, and now they live elsewhere.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    This touches on a point I bring up everywhere, which especially pisses off the Leftists. The rhetoric of diversity, tolerance, and multiculturalism is being used by Capital to censure opposition to the destruction of those with a sense of fair labor practice. In the old days, when the waterfront boys saw someone crossing the line, they would shout “Scab!” and there would be a fight. Now, when Nick Smith gets undercut in the IT sector by Sanjay Patel under the H1B Visa exchange program, and he shouts “Scab!” Sanjay and his surrogates can shout back “Racist!”

    It is a brilliant marriage. The more I read, the more right I realize you have been over the course of the last two years. “Mother Jones” had an article recently on the ten richest congressmen, worth 2.65 billion dollars, all of whom extended the Bush Tax Cuts, 7 of the 10 of whom were democrats. Anyone who can read that and think that Mitt Romney is the king of heartless plutocrats, or that the Left doesn’t run things (and have more money and power) is dumb as a mud fence.

    Sorry for the long post, but I just have to link this article from the Serbian political scientist, Tom Sunic: http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2012/09/the-future-of-the-european-peoples-part-2/

    Read especially the bit headed “Capitalism: The Main Enemy of European Peoples.” The worm has turned. At least countries that were commie have not been swallowing poisonous pop culture for the last fifty years. Living without electricity only prepares them for the time when we will all have to do without, as well.

    Ah yes – the H1B visa. One thing I’ve noticed as an outsider (working in IT, but not in America (don’t worry – I’m white)), is that any criticism of the H1B visa program in IT circles is met with the argument that Indians and Chinese have the same right to a job that Americans do. This might be true on some sort of universal scale, but I’m flabbergasted that anyone would suggest that it should be true IN AMERICA.

    • Essentially every non-white human being has the civil right of living in the US. Or Europe, if that’s where they want to go.

    • aryangoddess says:

      Indians need to stay in India and clean up the Ganges river. Maybe these IT brains can come up with some water purification filter that will cleanse the water that dead corpses, feces and urine contaminate. This same water that Indian people bathe and drink in. Instead of staying in their own country, they flee from their fellow Indians and come to the US. By coming to the US they dilute the wages for white Americans and create a jobless class of white men who can’t find a job. They don’t need to be in any white countries, period. Their work is shoddy. When I encounter one on the phone, I hang up.

      The Chinese need to stay in China as well. Maybe the young ones can populate all those ghost cities that were created in China where no one is living. China has tons of problems and their top Chinese talents needs to stay in that nation and fix whatever issues China has.

    Incidentally, the Swedish minister of finance wants to swell the population of Sweden from 9 million to 40 million (!) by importing “Asian professionals”. I suppose this is marginally better than importing Somali illiterates, but let’s just say that it’s these kinds of plans which have made me determined to emigrate.

    • Heil Hizzle Mein Nizzle says:

      Eventually they’ll ensure you run out of places to emigrate, except those which are deemed not-exotic and too backward, i.e. the Eastern European countries Sunic mentioned. Eastern Europe is where we make our last stand, where the white alley cat realizes he has his back against the wall.

      • A says:

        Yes, I’m afraid that is true. Still, in the short run I must ensure that I don’t end up living in a Sweden of 7 million Swedes (our current numbers) and 33 million “others”.

    • anonymous says:

      I bet you could find 31 million white professionals outside of sweden who would HAPPILY immigrate to sweden tomorrow just in america alone.

    To me, WN means putting race first, even before money if necessary. The capitalist values hard cash over everything else, which turns everything into a commodity. I believe WN is profitable but I’m prepared to do it even if it is not.

    You have to integrate race and biology into economics. WHen you hide them, the costs are often hidden just like the way they are in California and their 10 million guests. It appears cheap and profitable but that’s just because you pass off the costs.

    • Jehu says:

      The purely economically motivated should be no big deal to deal with—simply make it more expensive to be an enemy of white demographic hegemony than to be a friend. It is the ideological true believers and the status conscious that ensure that the resolution of this affair is going to be bloody.

  5. Abelard Lindsey says:

    I drove though Detroit once, about 10 years ago, on the I-75. I saw several of those high-rise housing projects near the freeway. They looked just like the ones you see in the “hood” movies. I wasn’t about to get off the freeway anywhere near them. I stayed on the freeway.
