”Expect More Hysterical Screeching”—Leftists Can’t Help Being Self-Destructive (Which Is Good!)

The ROE vs WADE reversal ructions seem a good moment to point out that, during the crazy debate over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, when females seemed to have false memories of him raping them and exposing himself to them while he was a student at Yale, I commented The Democratic Party Has Tipped, To Minorities, Women, Gays—Expect More Kavanaugh-Type Hysteria in the Future.

Specifically, I noted research shows women are considerably higher in mental instability (“Neuroticism”), and This, after all, is basically just a means via which they can express their feelings to each other and also alleviate a sense of guilt and social anxiety about their own “racism”, “white privilege”, or whatever they’ve bee told to feel guilty about.

They have other traits which can make them surprisingly more selfish (given that  women are higher in altruism and empathy) in the right circumstances, than men. As they take over society, and especially as they take over “caring” professions—such as teaching, medicine, non-profits and Woke activism—this can have serious, and self-destructive, consequences.

VDARE.com also mourns the death of Chris Roberts/Martin Rojas, pictured above on a visit to the Berkeley Springs Castle with the Brimelow family. We have archives of his work under a variety of pseudonyms (adopted by dissidents not only for normal reasons, but to avoid Leftist violence, etc.): Chris Roberts, Hubert Collins, Gilbert Cavanaugh, and Benjamin Villaroel.

It is with the deepest sorrow that we announce the unexpected death of Chris Roberts. He was an invaluable member of the AmRen staff, and as our primary public contact, was personally known to many of you. The cause of his death is not known.

Roberts, who worked for us from July 2016 to October 2017 and again, beginning in November 2019, was a constant source of energy and new ideas. His title—Director of Special Projects—fit him perfectly. He did everything: fundraising, website optimization, video-distribution strategy, donor relations, podcasts, author prospecting and, of course, he wrote. We published more than 400 of his articles, including those under his pen names of Gilbert Cavanaugh and Hubert Collins.

Besides the AmRen mainstays of politics, history, and race, Roberts had a deep knowledge of film, about which he also loved to write. He had an intimate understanding of the Left that is very unusual in our circles. He was always looking for potential allies, whether on the anti-anti-racist Left, among libertarians, and even conventional conservatives. He knew the language of these movements, could meet their members on their own ground, and startle them with his insights.

Although we knew him as Chris Roberts, this too, was a pen name. Martin Christopher Rojas was born in 1992 to a Chilean immigrant father and an American mother. He grew up in Minnesota speaking English and Spanish, and published in both languages.

Martin Rojas

He studied briefly at a now defunct great-books school in Chicago called Shimer College and took a few courses here and there, but was otherwise self-taught. He was fascinated by the astonishing achievements and astonishing decline of the West. He was proof that it’s possible to master many fields without having a single dollar in student debt.

Earlier: Peter Brimelow On Judicial Imperialism In FORBES...THIRTY [FIVE] YEARS AGO!

While I was putting together my notes for today's podcast, the news came out that, as leaked a few days ago, the U.S. Supreme Court has indeed reversed the 1973 abortion decision Roe v. Wade.

You can read it below, with tendentious annotations from the New York Times, or take it plain in PDF here.

There is, after all, the Supremes have ruled, no national right to an abortion hidden in the cracks and fissures of the U.S. Constitution. If Americans at large would like there to be such a national law, they should lobby their senators and congressmen to write and enact one. Should whatever is written and enacted then be judged unconstitutional by the court, citizens should agitate for an appropriate constitutional amendment.

That's the system we have and have had since the Founding. But since the mid-1960s it has been corrupted by judicial imperialism, aided and abetted by Congress failing to carry out its proper functions.

There have been a few jurists aware of the problem, and vocal in their written opinions that it is not the job of the courts to legislate; but their voices have been drowned out by the modern liberal intelligentsia, which has included most of our lawyers and judges.

My favorite of those few dissident voices: the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who left us six years ago. When I saw this morning's news my first thought was: "Ah, the Spirit of Scalia!" Apparently, the late Justice's spirit is indeed active in the Roberts court.

I mentioned constitutional amendments. When was the last one, do you know? Answer

Earlier: John Oliver Point-And-Sputters At Blake Masters And VDARE.com

If stopping “gun crime” or “gun violence” is the Gordian Knot of contemporary criminal justice matters, then Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters might be Alexander the Great. With three words, he sliced through the problem by equating gun crime in America with “black people, frankly” [Blake Masters Blames Gun Violence on ‘Black People, Frankly’, By Roger Sollenberger, Daily Beast, June 6, 2022]. You read that correctly. Masters had the courage to say what needs to be said: Blacks with guns, not guns themselves, cause almost all the mayhem and murder in “urban” America. This VDARE.com survey of every major city proves Masters right.

Masters uttered the unutterable in an interview with podcaster Jeff Oravits on April 11.

“We do have a gun violence problem in this country, and it’s gang violence,” Masters said:

“It’s people in Chicago, St. Louis shooting each other. Very often, you know, Black people, frankly. … And the Democrats don’t want to do anything about that.”

The commissars in the Main Stream Media quickly quickly published point-and-splutter headlines:

The implication, of course, is that Masters is wrong; i.e., that blacks behaving badly with guns is not the main crime problem in America’s most dangerous cities, and that Masters, as Rolling Stone proclaimed, “has leaned on both guns and racism throughout his bid for Congress.”

For the record, Masters is running for the Senate, not "Congress". But what do you expect from the magazine that manufactured the U.Va. Rape Hoax?

But let’s look at the facts in six major cities:

Bill Barr, two-time attorney general and one of approximately 2.5 members of the Trump administration to leave with his reputation intact, has also written one of only two books about that administration worth reading, “One Damn Thing After Another.” I’ve read 'em all. At least partially. Most did not merit more than a quick skim.

[For those interested, the other book about the Trump administration worth reading is Michael Wolfe’s “Fire and Fury,” but judging by its sales, you probably already have this book.]

I’ve been a fan of Barr’s since long before he worked for Trump, and was thrilled when he became Trump’s A.G. But when I got to Barr’s description of Trump’s appeal—which went on for pages and pages!—I wanted to throw the book out the window.

You can probably guess where I’m headed.

By Barr’s lights, none of Trump’s positives involved...immigration.

They will not learn. No matter what we do, no matter how many times Americans tell pollsters they want less immigration, no matter how loudly we beg Washington to halt the endless flow of the third world into our country, the ruling class refuses

Earlier, November 2020: POLITICO Discovers Trump-Supporting Tejanos on the Border

If only because of the illegal-alien invasion at the southwest border, Republicans have been rightly optimistic about crushing Biden’s party in November. And Mexico-born Mayra Flores’ victory in the special election for Texas 34th congressional district has reinforced those not-unwarranted hopes [Newly elected Mayra Flores on Democrats: ‘They feel entitled to our vote,’ by David Cohen, Politico, June 19, 2022]. But GOP strategists must not imagine that Flores’ success means Hispanics are running to the GOP nationwide, so they just need to continue tilting at the windmill of the Hispanic vote while ignoring the white middle class. South Texas is unique, and very unlike the major cities where Hispanics are monolithically Democrat and will certainly stay that way.

TX-34 is 85 percent Hispanic and it has been solidly Democrat for ages [Republicans flip U.S. House seat in South Texas, historically a Democratic stronghold, by Patrick Svitek, Texas Tribune, June 14, 2022]. Incumbent Rep. Filemon Vela Jr. announced in March 2021 that he would not run for re-election, despite winning 55-42 in 2020. Perhaps significantly, Joe Biden won the district by a smaller margin, 51-37. For perspective, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton won the district handily during their presidential runs in 2012 and 2016: 61-38 and 59-37 respectively.

Vela quit to accept a job with the K Street Bandits at the Akin Gump lobbying firm [The Texas Tribune U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela will resign early from Congress, by Abby Livingston, Texas Tribune, March 24, 2022]. Flores will finish Vela’s term, and in November she’ll tackle Rep. Vicente Gonzalez in the newly redrawn TX-34.

Flores’ background is unusual. She was born in Tamaulipas State in Mexico, and her husband is a Border Patrol agent—named John Vallejo, a typically assimilated Tejano name. This illustrates a point repeatedly made by VDARE.com’s Allan Wall: not all Mexican-Americans are keen about mass migration. Unlike mass migration boosters such as white Conquistador-American Jorge Ramos, who likely enjoys the services of a helot class of servants, many Hispanics must deal with illegal aliens in the workforce and recognize that they push down wages. 

As for Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, he has represented the 15th district since 2017. Once a safe Democratic district, it’s become more competitive in the past decade. Hilary Clinton won the district by a comfortable 56-40, though in 2020 Biden defeated Donald Trump by a thin two points, 50-48. Gonzalez won by just three points, 50-47. My guess: Flores may prevail because 2022 looks like an awful year for Democrats, but it will be tough.

So yes, appearances are, South Texas Hispanics are tilting Republican. Most notable was Republican success in Zapata County. Democrats
