The Irish Savant
has been in Stockholm, producing a couple of very depressing blogs
I`ve been here nearly two weeks. After a day or two I began to take count of the couples that I saw. I divided them into Swede with Swede, Swede with cultural enricher, and where both were cultural enrichersâ€¦
I`m not claiming that the figures meet normal statistical sampling standards, but equally when a consistent pattern emerges, day after day, it must mean something.In all I counted 214 couples. Here`s the breakdown:132 Swede/Swede24 Both cultural enrichers or else not possible to say58 Swede/cultural enricher
So there you have it. More than one in four of such liaisons feature a Swede and a cultural enricher. This, looking at it coldly and mathematically, means the death of the Swedish people as we know it. But we realised this anywayâ€¦
But he was distracted from this pleasant pastime
by reading The Recessionâ€™s Racial Divide By BARBARA EHRENREICH and DEDRICK MUHAMMAD The New York Times
September 12, 2009 - about which he has produced a devastating critique (Sociologists need their lab rats
Saturday 19 September 2009):
You can see whatâ€™s coming, of course.Blacks are â€?taking the brunt of the recessionâ€™ apparentlyâ€¦Could this be due to the millions of illegal Latino immigrants taking their jobs and working at dirt-level pay?Apparently not. These possible factors are not mentioned at all, in fact.Could it be due to the well-documented failings of the black community, poor work ethic, low IQ, high predisposition to criminality, unstable family environment?No, these are not mentioned either. So whatâ€™s the cause. Itâ€™s simple. Racism (on the part of whites, I need hardly add).
Ehrenreich, of course, has been an MSM
favorite for years
(a couple of left blogs are having ecstasies about this latest piece). But she was born in 1941
and it shows.
As The Irish Savant
demonstrates, she is quite unable to grasp the Minority Mortgage Meltdown
...she moves on to the sub-prime bust. She explains how, for generations, and â€?thanks to a legacy of discriminationâ€™, â€?solid black citizensâ€™ were denied house loans by mortgage lenders. Why? Could it have been their well-documented lousy credit ratings? No. This factor was not mentioned.The real explanation then? More racism.
But there is a problem
...as I read on, I must confess, I get hopelessly confused. Because, just before the sub-prime bust, it seems that those same mortgage lenders, by some mysterious and unexplained mechanism, have turned around 180 degreesâ€¦theyâ€™re now actually seeking out those very same â€?solid black citizensâ€™ to offer them all the money they want to buy houses!Isn`t that remarkable? And isn`t it wonderful? Barbara must have been thrilled.But no â€“ apparently not. It seems that these lenders were greedy unscrupulous capitalist pigs, â€?forcingâ€™ loans on confused and vulnerable people, after which they ran cackling all the way to the bank
If the greedy capitalists are only interested in grabbing all the money they can (and I agree with her on that one) why did they pass up all those wonderful opportunities with the â€?solid black citizensâ€™ over all these years?Alas, she doesnâ€™t explain.Ok, the foregoing has been facetious, so letâ€™s get serious for a minute. In the name of Jesus, how can we expect to solve what is a serious problem if we resolutely avert our gaze from the real causes?
Thatâ€™s Hate Speech
! Wicked Irish Savant
Of course, as VDARE.com has repeatedly demonstrated, mass immigration in the past generation has been far and away the worst economic problem experienced by blacks
And the trigger for the mortgage crisis was not banking avarice (always present, otherwise they wouldnâ€™t be working at all). It was the foolish
actions by the Clinton and Bush
administrations to encourage lenders
to lower standards and foist complicated financial schemes on people who lacked the capability
to understand them.
Barbara Ehrenreich is in a time warp. America is not a gritty but white
labor town like Butte MT, where she was born. Neither is it a pre-affirmative action liberal arts college
, where no doubt she began her assimilation into this world view
Peter Brimelow likes to say America will not deal with its modern problems before the generation which became young adults before the 1965 Immigration disaster
became obvious has left the scene.
But they could try thinking
. Tell Barbara Ehrenreich
to stop humming The Ballard of Joe Hill
and get up to date. Ask Dedrick Muhammad
if he contributed anything to this obsolete nonsense beyond his color
