    Hmm, I spent most of my adult life telling people what to do. If I had known his technique, things might have been easier.

    Is this 911?

    Yeah, can I help you?

    This is Omar … you probably want to know the reason why I shot this place up. They treat me bad over here, so I just take it into my own hands and I handled the problem — I wish I coulda got more of the people.

    Are you armed, sir? Do you have a weapon with you? How many guns do you have with you?

    I got a Ruger SR9, 15 shot … it’s a pistol. I like pistols too, they are my favorites.

    We’re just talking, you’re gonna play something on the news, you know I’m gonna be popular, right [inaudible] the right thing. SWAT team just rolled by in army gear. You don’t know where I’m at, but, I don’t know, maybe you can trace it from this phone call. But, yeah, these people here are crazy, they treat me bad from the start here, racist company.

    I liked that, Malcolm, thank you. Now to share, here’s one of my favorite comic strips of all time:

  4. Hi Tim,

    In your favorite comic strip, the panel that shows the defense lawyer portraying the defendant as an angel, the lawyer (presumably a Jew, because he is wearing a yarmulka) has a very long nose that looks remarkably like a circumcised penis. Is that the funny part of your favorite comic strip?

    Henry, you seem disquieted by the comic strip. Is it the direct connection drawn between black on black violence and Jewish promotion of such violence via taking advantage of the legal system to bilk (white) city and state coffers out of millions that bothers you? Would you prefer to ignore such connections?

  6. Nope. My preference is to reveal blatant racial and ethnic prejudice.

    And Tim, I share my Friend Henry’s preference.

    Tim,

    I’ve deleted your link. I’m happy to discuss pretty much any ideas here, openly and honestly. Grotesque and inflammatory caricatures, however, which add nothing but enmity and resentment to an already difficult and highly charged topic, are unnecessary and unwelcome. Moreover, the tone and intent of your comment, in the unrelated context of this post, were obviously intended as a provocation, or some sort of test.

    If you have a case to make, make it without giving gratuitous offense.

    Hi Malcolm, no problem. You’ve talked a lot about the dangers of Islam and seem in support of a ban on Islamic immigration. I happen to agree with this stance. Yet many Muslims come here and do assimilate peacefully. Clearly the failure of Islam to assimilate is a (true) generalization, and yet you are okay with applying law to an entire group of people based upon that generalization.

    Does your generalizing stop at Islam? If so, why? If not, why do you not apply it to other groups such as Jews, blacks, etc?

    The modern free, democratic, individualistic order was predicated on a strong white majority in this country. With whites a smaller and smaller percentage of the population, this order is on the way out and politics based on race and class will only grow.

    Tim,

    Those are fair points, and indeed I have discussed some of them rather extensively in the past, and will continue to do so. The disproportionate involvement of Jewish intellectuals in the creation of the modern liberal “order” is something I haven’t spoken about as much, but it is real enough, and of historical and ideological interest.

    All of this is up for discussion. We can do so, however, without being gratuitously insulting.

  11. Malcolm,

    There has been such discussion in these pages, most recently in your post “Round Up The Usual Suspects“. I, for one, do not shy away from these. But in order to do so intelligently, it behooves us to bear in mind that once you embark on grouping of humans beyond the “atomized” individuals having unique DNA makeup, you must bear in mind that all groupings comprising substantial numbers of individual members (i.e., “elements”) will have significant overlap with some other groupings.

    For example, if your conversation includes the groupings of “whites”, “Jews”, “blacks”, and “Muslims”, there will be no overlap between Jews and Muslims (with respect to religion), some overlap between whites and blacks (with respect to skin hue), virtually complete overlap between whites and Ashkenazi Jews (with respect to skin color), and a fair (pun intended) amount of overlap between blacks and Sephardic Jews (with respect to skin color).

    Obviously, the important thing to keep in mind is that you can not make sensible deductions from comparing apples and oranges (i.e., skin-color groups and religion/ethnicity groups).

    Guess I’m too late to the party. The vid has now been marked “private.” Or was that the point?

    Wow, that’s annoying. Sorry, Kevin.

    I wonder why that happened.

    Kevin, I found another version, here. I’ll update the link in the post.
