    How original.

  • Major Matt Mason

    I keep hearing about the 350,000,000 firearms allegedly in the USA.
    Apart from a couple of scattered incidents, said firearms aren’t doing diddly squat.
    Isn’t it time to start shooting the bastards yet?

    • Indra Kaw

      Abortion kills more.

      • Reliable, but too slow.

      • Major Matt Mason

        And you wind up going from Margaret Sanger to Kermit Gosnell. (sad sigh) As always, it’s the children who suffer.

      • Maxim Sukharev

        So does anime.

        Ban anime worldwide.

      • Hibernia86

        Pro-lifers are like PETA. They think everything is of equal moral value. A fertilized egg is not a baby. If there was a fire and you could only save a baby or a fertilized egg, you’d save the baby if you weren’t insane.

        • Indra Kaw

          Unfertilized egg in animal term brings benefits. When it come to human, it’s ended up as period.

          Speaking about moral values, I’m seriously worried. Humanity could ended up eating human babies or human corpse. I mean, when it come to effectiveness and science, it’s way more economical friendly:

          No energy to be wasted to burn corpse, or
          no land to be occupied for graveyard, or
          no need to eat animal meats (probably PETA), etc.

          I’m totally disagree. It’s not like the Earth turned into hellscape to the poin plants won’t grow and animal/cattle unable to reproduce.

        • No, animals lives don’t mean sht. Human lives are a different story you turd.

    • Chris Redfield

      The police are being held back deliberately so that the more patriotic folk would react and then go after the people who attacked “peaceful protestors”; an opportunity to push for gun grabbing.

      • Major Matt Mason

        A plausible theory, but, if true, Civil War II is going to be a protracted and bloody affair.

        • It’s going to be that anyway.
          Don’t kid yourself that it will be painless and quick.
          It won’t be like 100,000 dead octogenarians.
          It will be more like 100,000,000 of everybody.

    • that guy

      Baby murder killing more seen some satanic jewish plebs get shot though

    • Albionic American

      America’s gun owners didn’t stop the Federal Reserve Act, the income tax, the New Deal, civil rights legislation, the Great Society, the Hart-Celler Act and other assaults on our civilization. Why do you think they’ll use their weapons against the Wokevik uprising?

      • Major Matt Mason

        Because in this case, there’s tangible targets?

      • Major Matt Mason

        Oh, and I like the term “Wokevik”. Consider it swiped! 🙂 In return, please feel free to use “BMLM”. 😉

      • Hibernia86

        Why would the middle class stop the income tax? They are the ones who benefit from it.

        I know I shouldn’t be wasting my time on a Nazi site, but did you seriously say “civil rights legislation” is an “assault on our civilization”?

    • basedmotherfxucker

      White Americans worship the negro. They wouldn’t dare to shoot at one even if one was raping his mother.

      • Alistair Grove

        That’s only the Democrats.

        • WeWuzKangz

          Mate, so do the Republicans. Why do you think they keep pandering for the (very small) black vote and try their hardest to not appear racist, while ceding the moral high ground to the left?

          • Alistair Grove

            Because most of them are cowards and morons. Yes, from a practical standpoint that’s the same as the grifters and zealots among the Democrats, but the motivation is still different.

        • basedmotherfxucker

          I’m afraid this love is a bipartisan affair.

            Only in the cities.

      • Chris Redfield

        There are gun owning Americans and (non-gun-owning non-americans) who openly fantasize about killing home invaders…and in a sane nation with decent order and freedom, rightly so.

    • Black Spruce

      He’s an israel firster just like the rest of them. Lip service to patriotism doesn’t invalidate that.

      • Kilátó

        Yes, but you cannot be anti-zionist nowadays, so I don’t blame him for it. He knows that iright-wing zionist jews give him some protection as long as he’s of any use to them. Also as almost all Muricans were brainwashed to worship Israel and jewish people (the mainstream right just as much as the mainstream left), The average Christian Zionist hick is cheering on as Trump recognizes Israel’s annexations etc. Tbh I don’t see it too bad either. I would gladly support Israel unconditionally if their tribe wouldn’t be hellbent on destroying the white race apparently.

        • Black Spruce

          He is by far the most israel-first president the US has ever had. This isn’t just a matter of giving lip service to AIPAC in order to get elected. He annexed parts of Syria and Palestine to give to israel, he endorsed Benjamin “9/11 was beneficial for israel” Netanyahu, and he stole thirty eight billion dollars from the American people in order to fund israel’s universal healthcare system.

          • Kilátó

            He is a buffoon and an Israel sellout. But the other side simply wants you dead. Must be hard to decide who to vote for…

          • Black Spruce

            Accelerate.

          • Holyphonic

            Accelerationism doesn’t work, or have you not been paying attention this summer?

          • Black Spruce

            Groids taking advantage of a protest to enrich themselves is acceleration? No I’m talking about voting for the likes of Joe Biden, knowing his economic policies will absolutely tank the economy far worse than the pandemic has, and his social policies will balkanize, radicalize, and further divide people to the level where open street warfare is the new normal, and how his gun confiscation policies will get conservatives and libertarians to put their money where their mouths are on gun rights so either we get several new Waco-style incidents every single day, or they meekly comply like they’ve been doing with all infringements for the last century.

            We’re going to get there eventually. Better rip the bandage off quickly rather than slowly peeling it off.

          • Holyphonic

            Yes, groids taking advantage of a protest and anti-white rhetoric and policies being ramped up to never-before-seen heights is indeed acceleration and it has had the opposite of the intended effect.

            Your economic acceleration is also not going to work either. Gun owners and lolberts will do nothing. Nothing is what they did in 1913, it’s what they did during the depression, it’s what they did in ’65, it’s what they’re doing now and what they will do when Biden wins and the economy tanks.

            The Roman economy tanked too and empire was completely diversified. Did the Romans rise up in open warfare in the streets? No. Instead they got conquered by Visigoths. When the German economy, did normies do anything? No. The only reason Adolf was able to win was because it was still mostly-possible to do so via democracy back then.

            You’re also forgetting that Biden’s social policies include nonstop, totally open-borders non-white immigration. That’s the biggest thing.

            and the sobering reality of that is that the ‘groids shooting white kids in the head, the asians economically smoking you out of areas, etc. are not trained soldiers or something; they’re just normal blacks and stuff.

            And historically whenever a civilian white population has been pit against a civilian nonwhite population, whites always get ethnically cleansed because they opt to either run away, do nothing, or try to compromise with the invaders.

            Without the army on your side, you can forget it.

          • Black Spruce

            Police stations and courts are being burned, federal officers are being blinded, the public is becoming more and more opposed to antifa and marxism, and white people are getting sick and tired of diversity. Those are all pluses to me.

            If the cuckservatives and lolberts don’t do anything about Biden’s sweeping gun control measures, then it’s clear they don’t deserve those liberties. Even passive noncompliance is something. Kiwis are less cucked than Americans when it comes to gun control. Barely anyone handed in their prohibited firearms after the ban. In terms of Biden tanking the economy, that would be great for the counter-market. More people relying solely on cryptocurrency and grey/black market peer to peer association which starves the state of resources.

            I doubt the Roman or German empires had anywhere near the same level of murderous racial tensions that the US does currently. Almost all non-white ethnic groups in America have nothing but disdain and hatred for the white population, and with an economic disaster and a crippled government, that will be their chance to take on whitey. This is an inevitability, and it would be far better that it happens now rather than in 50 years where white people are a minority and the people who hate them completely run the government, and use it to put the boot on their throats.

            Yup, and so does Trump. Both are in favor of mass legal immigration from the third world. Immigrants which vote overwhelmingly for democrats, against gun rights, and against free speech. The only difference is Trump’s lip service to curbing illegal immigration, but doing next to nothing about it, and deports at a lower rate than Obama did. Plus his solution, the wall, will be ineffective, as 70% of the illegal immigrants in the US enter legally, but overstay their visas, and the remaining 30% know how to use ladders or tunnels or smugglers.

            Exactly. Whites get ethnically cleansed. This is going to start happening whether you like it or not. Would you like for it to happen now? Or would you like it to happen once white people become a hated minority with no voice in government?

            My side? Oh no, don’t be mistaken. I’m not actually on any sides here. I would just prefer it if the inevitable happened sooner rather than later. You can only kick the can down the road so far. We stand a far better chance of survival if the inevitable happens now instead of 50-100 years from now when we become an oppressed minority.

          • Holyphonic

            We stand a far better chance of survival if the inevitable happens now instead of 50-100 years from now when we become an oppressed minority.

            There is no historical precedence that suggests that will be the case.

            Logical conclusions can still be way off the mark if they lack sufficient input data.

          • Black Spruce

            Is it easier to oppress and slaughter a disarmed minority with no voice in government, or is it easier to oppress and slaughter an armed majority with at least some say in government?

          • Holyphonic

            You don’t have any say in government

          • Black Spruce

            Not individually. No individual has a say in government unless they have a lot of money to bribe politicians with. I’m talking about as a group.

          • Holyphonic

            You’re not going to have a “group” in governement.

            Acceleration doesn’t work. We’ve seen that it doesn’t work. If you get economic collapse, as in Rome, what happens isn’t that all the men grow some balls and take back society. Instead, a non-cucked society with a surviving economy moves in. If the USA economy goes to hell, Js or Js biggest competitor, the Chinese, will just take it over.

            Racial acceleration does not work either. I’ve already explained why; you cannot treat whites the same as browns. You can’t expect us to react to “peaceful” invaders the same way other races do because history has proven that we won’t.

            You’re also not going to be able to fedpost. Because we don’t control communications and ever since warfare evolved past muskets and carrier pigeons, no white Guerrilla faction has ever defeated their nation’s own army. The IRA were the best fedposters in European. They still lost. Why? Because England had the better army. Better equipment, better technology, better communications, better supply lines, etc.

            The fact is that unless, and real soon, the US army is woken up and decides to put an end to it, then mostly likely, it’s just gonna be South Africa 2.0 that is what 4,000 years of history tells us.

            and as for “political” options, whites will be outnumbered in the USA when the dems win or when the boomers are dead in 10 years and voting will literally not be an option.

        • Hibernia86

          I know arguing with a Nazi is a waste of time, but Jews were kicked out of countries because people hated them for not following the same religion as the majority. So maybe you should blame the religious hatred of those countries rather than the Jews.

          • Ender Einstein

            Wrong. They were the ones forcing their religious beliefs on the countries they went to. The Jews were kicked out of the countries because they were trying to force Judaism on everybody.

        • what’s your base in reality to say that?
          That nation don’t have prejudice, ever? Or that racism doesn’t exist?

  • Howard

    Trump falling short of being a President who would actually go full Lee Kuan Yew and just send the military in to shoot people on sight is a good thing. Trump’s militaristic options are highly limited in this scenario. Instead of dreams of reclaiming your racially homogeneous utopia and making cartoons about it, you lot could’ve actually made yourselves useful at the ballot box and not have let Democrats take back the House in 2018.

  • Howard

    Well he’s not exactly been twiddling his thumbs. The first amendment limits his powers to just militarize the police against organized rioters considering their guerilla tactics blend them into the legally protesting crowds (like Palestinian terrorists using unarmed protestors as body armor against the IDF.) But imagine if Hilary or a RINO had won in 2016, and Trump hadn’t been there to stack up pro-2A judges over the past four years. There’s a reason the riots and looting is worst in gun-free Democrat run blue states, whereas red states in comparison have managed to curb and deter the same fate to a large extent.

    Is immigration beneficial for Europe?

    Immigration is perhaps the most controversial and dividing aspect of modern politics. There are parties that build their entire policy purely around this issue. We’ve also seen a sharp rise in xenophobic hate crimes as of recent [1] and very many people have strong opinions on the matter. In this essay, I will paint a clearer picture of immigration in European order to shed light on unknown elements of the issue, as well as refute common arguments. I’m doing this in an attempt to reduce hostility towards refugees and migrants, and hopefully close the political divide that can lead to disastrous consequences when hate is allowed to be directed towards a specific group of people. This essay will discuss both international and national aspects of immigration.

    Firstly let’s start with the economy. A common argument heard about immigration is that it harms the economy, puts strains of welfare systems due to immigrants not paying as much tax, and overall leads to a recessive economy. This argument could not be farther from the truth and even the slightest bit of research contradicts this statement. There is a global study by The University of Warwick and The European Commission who documented that “We find that our indices of cultural heterogeneity, birthplace fractionalization, and polarization, have a positive impact on the growth rate of the GDP over large time periods and that the coefficients are of similar magnitude” [2]. One might make the claim that this study is too broad and doesn’t apply to the EU. This claim is refuted by another study by The World Economy regarding immigration in the EU which states “Our simulation results suggest that, although the refugee integration (e.g., by providing welfare benefits, language, and professional training) is costly for the government budget, in the medium‐ to long‐run, socioeconomic and fiscal benefits may significantly outweigh the associated refugee integration costs.” [3]. Now one might once again attempt to make the claim that this doesn’t apply to Western European countries as they are already rather economically developed and they don’t necessarily need immigrants for healthy economic growth. This argument is proved wrong by another study by Science Mag who studies the effects of immigration on economically powerful developed western countries in the EU. Once again the results are as follows “ Our estimates indicate that these (immigration) shocks have positive effects on European economies: They significantly increase per capita GDP, reduce unemployment, and improve the balance of public finances; the additional public expenditures, which is usually referred to as the “refugee burden,” is more than outweighed by the increase in tax revenues”[4]. Now as a final resort to the overwhelming data, skeptics might make the claim that this doesn’t apply to western EU countries who have already taken in vast amounts of immigrants (such as Sweden and Germany), as the initial “shock” effect would have worn off. This claim is also false and is proven to be so by a Tillväxtanalys study which states that “One study on Sweden has found, using CIS data, a positive effect on radical innovation”, “There are also several studies that point out the importance of increased knowledge exchange (measured by citations) from immigration; such links and flows may well further stimulate follow-up economic activity such as trade” and “this means that the role of immigrants as facilitators of trade is of great importance, but it mainly applies to a specific subset of firms: it is probably more likely to allow firms with limited export experience to increase the number of foreign markets in which they are active”. [5] Immigration is a net positive for the economy, even for countries that have already taken in a great number of immigrants.

    On top of this, allowing immigrants a place in the European workforce actually supports their country of origin. Foreign-born workers send back 3x the amount of money to their countries than the countries receive from international aid by developed countries.[6] So by allowing them to work here, we are effectively helping them at home too.

    Secondly, I’d like to make the case for why we, in fact, need far more immigration than we are currently experiencing. I will demonstrate this using Sweden as an example. Firstly, Europe would, in fact, have negative population growth if it wasn’t for immigrants. This statistic was pulled from a Eurostat article which states that “During the year 2017, more deaths than births were recorded in the EU (5.3 million deaths and 5.1 million births), meaning that the natural change of the EU population was negative. The population change (positive, with 1.1 million more inhabitants) was therefore due to net migration.” [7] Negative population growth leads to a decrease in workforce and an increase in the elderly population. This is an effect without any advantages and should, therefore, be avoided. However, this negative natural population growth problem is far from solved, in fact, it has only just begun. By 2028 (counting only nationally born) we will have a 47% increase in people above 65 years of age (the age of retirement) and suffer a 1% decrease in the workforce population (20-64 years of age) in Sweden. [8] This is due to baby boomers getting older and leaving the workforce. This will bring about several crises within Sweden, and one of the most obvious ones being the welfare sector. Sweden is already struggling with high-quality welfare and the increased strain that will be put on it by the increase in retired people, coupled with the decrease in the workforce, can have disastrous consequences. In fact, it has been estimated that we will need 500,000 people commencing work in the welfare sector by 2028.[9] This would mean that every single nationally born person entering the workforce from now until 2028 will have to commence work within the welfare sector in order to fill this gap. This is simply implausible. So why don’t we just put all the unemployed immigrants into the welfare sector? Well apart from it being extremely difficult and limiting the freedom of the people’s career choices it also simply wouldn’t be enough. The number of unemployed immigrants (whose unemployment rate dropped from 21% to 19% throughout the span of only one year may I add) still only totals 211 thousand people. [10] So how can we solve this problem? Well importing welfare workers from developed nations hardly seems like a viable strategy, partly because it would be extremely time consuming and not fill up the requirement fast enough, but also because Sweden doesn’t have especially extravagant pay for welfare sector workers. The only viable tactic is to take in more immigrants and to encourage them to work within the welfare sector. Why is this more effective than encouraging the native-born population to work within welfare? Firstly, there simply aren’t enough native-born people, secondly, immigrants are far better at getting into the workforce faster. Around 50% of the immigrants Sweden took in during 2011 found a job after only 5 years, and around 50% of the men found one in only 3. [11] Compare this to the 20 or so years taken for a native-born person to start working.

    In conclusion, Europe is on its way towards a crisis. Not a crisis caused by immigrants, as many believe, but a crisis that can only be solved by them. If we don’t act upon the wall speeding towards us now, we’ll crash into it and bring about one of the largest welfare crises Europe has ever seen. It is by preventing crises like this that Europe remains a peaceful and prosperous continent.

      Actually, I don’t mind if they implement faggotry laws in third world baby factory countries. Believe me, you don’t want Africa’s population to reach 4 billion by the end of this century. But everything else that Trump stands for is indeed Jizzraeli interest. If Trump wins, he will start a war for Israel and he will say “I never said WALL, I said WAR”. Then again, Joe Biden is a pedophile and also works for Israel. In short, we are fucked either ways!!!

      Imagine thinking we need Donald Trump for every little problem. You sound like the SJWs who beg for government to do everything for them.

    Is immigration beneficial for Europe?

    Immigration is perhaps the most controversial and dividing aspect of modern politics. There are parties that build their entire policy purely around this issue. We’ve also seen a sharp rise in xenophobic hate crimes as of recent [1] and very many people have strong opinions on the matter. In this essay, I will paint a clearer picture of immigration in European order to shed light on unknown elements of the issue, as well as refute common arguments. I’m doing this in an attempt to reduce hostility towards refugees and migrants, and hopefully close the political divide that can lead to disastrous consequences when hate is allowed to be directed towards a specific group of people. This essay will discuss both international and national aspects of immigration.

    Firstly let’s start with the economy. A common argument heard about immigration is that it harms the economy, puts strains of welfare systems due to immigrants not paying as much tax, and overall leads to a recessive economy. This argument could not be farther from the truth and even the slightest bit of research contradicts this statement. There is a global study by The University of Warwick and The European Commission who documented that “We find that our indices of cultural heterogeneity, birthplace fractionalization, and polarization, have a positive impact on the growth rate of the GDP over large time periods and that the coefficients are of similar magnitude” [2]. One might make the claim that this study is too broad and doesn’t apply to the EU. This claim is refuted by another study by The World Economy regarding immigration in the EU which states “Our simulation results suggest that, although the refugee integration (e.g., by providing welfare benefits, language, and professional training) is costly for the government budget, in the medium‐ to long‐run, socioeconomic and fiscal benefits may significantly outweigh the associated refugee integration costs.” [3]. Now one might once again attempt to make the claim that this doesn’t apply to Western European countries as they are already rather economically developed and they don’t necessarily need immigrants for healthy economic growth. This argument is proved wrong by another study by Science Mag who studies the effects of immigration on economically powerful developed western countries in the EU. Once again the results are as follows “ Our estimates indicate that these (immigration) shocks have positive effects on European economies: They significantly increase per capita GDP, reduce unemployment, and improve the balance of public finances; the additional public expenditures, which is usually referred to as the “refugee burden,” is more than outweighed by the increase in tax revenues”[4]. Now as a final resort to the overwhelming data, skeptics might make the claim that this doesn’t apply to western EU countries who have already taken in vast amounts of immigrants (such as Sweden and Germany), as the initial “shock” effect would have worn off. This claim is also false and is proven to be so by a Tillväxtanalys study which states that “One study on Sweden has found, using CIS data, a positive effect on radical innovation”, “There are also several studies that point out the importance of increased knowledge exchange (measured by citations) from immigration; such links and flows may well further stimulate follow-up economic activity such as trade” and “this means that the role of immigrants as facilitators of trade is of great importance, but it mainly applies to a specific subset of firms: it is probably more likely to allow firms with limited export experience to increase the number of foreign markets in which they are active”. [5] Immigration is a net positive for the economy, even for countries that have already taken in a great number of immigrants.

    On top of this, allowing immigrants a place in the European workforce actually supports their country of origin. Foreign-born workers send back 3x the amount of money to their countries than the countries receive from international aid by developed countries.[6] So by allowing them to work here, we are effectively helping them at home too.

    Secondly, I’d like to make the case for why we, in fact, need far more immigration than we are currently experiencing. I will demonstrate this using Sweden as an example. Firstly, Europe would, in fact, have negative population growth if it wasn’t for immigrants. This statistic was pulled from a Eurostat article which states that “During the year 2017, more deaths than births were recorded in the EU (5.3 million deaths and 5.1 million births), meaning that the natural change of the EU population was negative. The population change (positive, with 1.1 million more inhabitants) was therefore due to net migration.” [7] Negative population growth leads to a decrease in workforce and an increase in the elderly population. This is an effect without any advantages and should, therefore, be avoided. However, this negative natural population growth problem is far from solved, in fact, it has only just begun. By 2028 (counting only nationally born) we will have a 47% increase in people above 65 years of age (the age of retirement) and suffer a 1% decrease in the workforce population (20-64 years of age) in Sweden. [8] This is due to baby boomers getting older and leaving the workforce. This will bring about several crises within Sweden, and one of the most obvious ones being the welfare sector. Sweden is already struggling with high-quality welfare and the increased strain that will be put on it by the increase in retired people, coupled with the decrease in the workforce, can have disastrous consequences. In fact, it has been estimated that we will need 500,000 people commencing work in the welfare sector by 2028.[9] This would mean that every single nationally born person entering the workforce from now until 2028 will have to commence work within the welfare sector in order to fill this gap. This is simply implausible. So why don’t we just put all the unemployed immigrants into the welfare sector? Well apart from it being extremely difficult and limiting the freedom of the people’s career choices it also simply wouldn’t be enough. The number of unemployed immigrants (whose unemployment rate dropped from 21% to 19% throughout the span of only one year may I add) still only totals 211 thousand people. [10] So how can we solve this problem? Well importing welfare workers from developed nations hardly seems like a viable strategy, partly because it would be extremely time consuming and not fill up the requirement fast enough, but also because Sweden doesn’t have especially extravagant pay for welfare sector workers. The only viable tactic is to take in more immigrants and to encourage them to work within the welfare sector. Why is this more effective than encouraging the native-born population to work within welfare? Firstly, there simply aren’t enough native-born people, secondly, immigrants are far better at getting into the workforce faster. Around 50% of the immigrants Sweden took in during 2011 found a job after only 5 years, and around 50% of the men found one in only 3. [11] Compare this to the 20 or so years taken for a native-born person to start working.

    In conclusion, Europe is on its way towards a crisis. Not a crisis caused by immigrants, as many believe, but a crisis that can only be solved by them. If we don’t act upon the wall speeding towards us now, we’ll crash into it and bring about one of the largest welfare crises Europe has ever seen. It is by preventing crises like this that Europe remains a peaceful and prosperous continent.

      Your solution to the economic problems of europe is the replacement of european children by foreign adults, who also drive down the cost of labour. There’s more to life and countries than money, but you wouldn’t know that.

      Immigration is not a solution for current western socioeconomic model crisis – it’s just delay, because one day they become old and had to retire too.
      And who then will pay for their pensions – a new batch of migrants?

    So what is more likely. There is a real communist revolution underway in Murica or the Deep State/Plutocracy is pushing for a Race/Civil War to provide all the excuses to send in the army to shut down and remove all they deem to be worthless mouths to feed.
