Jean Cramer: “…keep Marysville a white community as much as possible.”

If you want to live in a white community, you should emigrate to Russia!

Since Adam and Eve were white people how did black people even come to be? Weird.

From a book review in the FT:

What drives migration today? The answer is neither war nor politics

Excerpt:
In the end, at current fertility rates, Europeans are breeding themselves out of existence, some (Spaniards, Italians, Bulgarians, Estonians, Germans) in the relatively short term, others (Irish, British, French, Scandinavians) with a slightly longer time horizon. The latest UK data suggest a lowest-ever birth rate and a sinking fertility rate. Whether Europeans wish, like the Japanese, to make way for nature as they abandon villages and even suburbs, or instead to make way for other people who do wish to reproduce, is ultimately a decision of policy and practice.

At the root of all of this is not the population boom in Africa or anywhere else but the ever-smaller family sizes in Europe. Whilst we should have the courage to stand up to those who wish the whole debate would go away and are too quick to throw accusations at those who believe it is healthy and necessary to discuss it, we should be equally determined to stand up to those on the far-right who speak the absurd language of “white genocide” and “replacement”. In response to the white supremacists chanting “they shall not replace us” — and indeed for predominantly white societies across Europe nervous about the ethnic change they are witnessing — we need to ask “are you prepared to reproduce yourselves?” For Europeans wanting neither a radically new ethnic complexion to their countries nor their emptying out altogether, an acceptable and effective pronatalist politics will need to be constructed.

For liberals who are relaxed about immigration and ethnic change, it is now incumbent upon them to come up with ways in which a coherent society can be formed from people of different backgrounds. Just as a nationalist sentiment was required to form the warfare states of Europe over the past two hundred years, so something new will be needed in its place if the welfare states of today are to survive in anything like their current form.

Wasn’t Eve made from Adam’s rib? So wouldn’t Adam having kids with Eve be kind of incestuous? Is that what this woman likes about the story? Is she saying incest is fine, but inter-racial marriage is not? Obviously I’m confused.

She was probably offered a better deal … as a guest commentator on FOX & Friends.

This is the reason you never asked a racist to verify whether they are a racist. Someone should have asked her what race Adam was and where did black and brown people come from if Adam was wife.

Stephen Smith must’ve seen a different group of white supremacists. The ones I saw didn’t chant “they” — they chanted “Jews.” Major difference.

I read “you” also. Perhaps a mishearing of “Jews”.

Edit: for his argument, the Steve king tweet would have been better:

Wasn’t it supposed to represent some kind of mark or sin or something? I thought they covered this in that book they all rave about. I can’t say for sure as I did try reading the first book in the series but I’ll admit I never got past the first few pages - terrible plot, pedantic writing and just too unbelievable. I did hear that the sequel was better - nice main character, but the ending sucks and the whole premise is really unbelievable…

We are at the early days of human history. Ultimately the races will blend together. That will be good for the entire species, but will take a few more centuries.
