One of my coworkers is a native of New Mexico. He's white.

He lived in Albuquerque for a while. One of his friends from Albuquerque was murdered. Seems some Mexicans were attempting to break into his friend's car one evening. The victim came upon the Mexicans, and they murdered him.

TCM's Film Noir of the Week at Midnight ET Saturday Night-Sunday Morning (and 10 a.m. Sunday) is The Clay Pigeon (1949)

TCM's Film Noir of the Week at Midnight ET Saturday Night-Sunday Morning (and 10 a.m. Sunday) is The Clay Pigeon (1949).

The Clay Pigeon has an angle seen in several late 40's film noirs—the amnesiac WW II veteran, aka “amnesia noir.” In this one, the vet is accused of treason, while in a Japanese POW camp. He wakes up in a Navy hospital under guard but escapes, and goes on the run.

 

Bill Williams and Marya Marco
 

Bill Williams stars as the veteran. Barbara Hale, Williams' real-life wife, teams with him to find the truth. Richard Loo, the movies’ favorite Japanese bad guy, plays a Japanese prison camp guard now in the USA living in Los Angeles, involved in a criminal gang. This sadistic guard was called "The Weasel" by the American prisoners.
 

 

Richard Fleischer directed with his usual style of getting a lot of action in a 63-minute film.

Richard Loo's character is obviously based on Tomoya Kawakita, who was a Nisei who went to Japan in 1939 and was employed (as were several Japanese-Americans) as guards, who generally were as brutal as the others. Kawakita was called the "Meatball" by the American prisoners.

 


Fictional bad guys played by Robert Bray and Richard Loo
 


The real Tomoya Kawakita in Los Angeles County Jail, 1947
 

Kawakita reentered the United States after the war. He was spotted by a former POW in Los Angeles, who took down Kawakita's license plate, leading to his arrest and trial for treason. This was in the news when The Clay Pigeon was made.

Kawakita was convicted of treason and sentenced to death, which was commuted in 1953. Kawakita was paroled and deported to Japan 10 years later, on the condition he not come back.

Google "Tomoya Kawakita" for information on the case.

The Clay Pigeon repeats at 10 a.m. ET Sunday, May 27. Let's see if our friend Eddie Muller mentions Kawakita, aka "The Meatball," being the inspiration for Richard Loo's "The Weasel."
 

 

N.S.: Nota bene: If not for Barbara Hale’s persistence, and the help of B-film director Edward Killy, Hale and Williams would never have gotten hitched.

Hale on her marriage to Bill Williams: “It took me two years to talk him into marrying me.”

Hale on making B-oater, West of the Pecos (1945):

“I told the director, Edward Killy, about casting a smaller role in the film for Bill Williams. Killy was sort of a stocky man, and had a cigar. He was a short man, and that cigar was about as big as he was . . . He smoked all the time! But he said, ‘Sure, Barb, I'll get Bill Williams up here in Lone Pine.’ He knew I had a crush on Bill. So Killy said, "I'll give him one scene at the beginning of the shoot and another at the end of the picture, so Bill can stay the whole time!’ That was so nice of him.”

Hale and Williams married on June 22, 1946, and remained wed for 46 years, until death they did part, on September 21, 1992. Although Hale would live another 24 years, until she died at 94 on January 26, 2017, she never wed again.

I'm reminded of what Nancy Barbato Sinatra, now 101, once said when a reporter asked her why she never remarried, after divorcing Frank Sinatra: "When you've had the best, all the rest are disappointments."

Another Kritarch Strikes at Immigration Enforcement—Judge Stops Arrests of Illegals Already Ordered Deported
By Federale Federale
May 24, 2018, 12:57 A.M.
VDARE

An imperious Federal judge has decided that his personal opinion about immigration enforcement policies is the same as the law.  In a lawless action, Kritarch Mark Wolf has personally attacked immigration officers and successfully intimidated U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) into ending arresting illegal aliens when they show up to claim immigration benefits to which they do not qualify for.
Wolf called top Massachusetts ICE officials to federal court for questioning Tuesday. Wolf has held that ICE “broke the law” in failing to give detainees adequate notice for their Post-Order Custody Review.
Wolf focused, in part, on the case of Lucimar de Souza, who was arrested by five ICE officers in January. They waited outside the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration office in Boston where de Souza was completing a confirmation of marriage interview, among the last steps to secure her legal status. De Souza is married to a United States citizen and has a 10-year-old son who was born in the country. [Federal Judge to ICE Official: When the Government Breaks the Law It Has ‘Profound Human Consequences,’ by Jacqueline Tempera, MassLive, May 22, 2018.]
While ostensibly about a few days delay in giving an arrested illegal alien a routine notice, a notice that of was of no legal or procedural importance, as the alien in question had an outstanding deportation order and was subject to immediate removal without any right to any hearing, the real issue was the Kritarch Wolf did not like the idea that illegal aliens are being arrested and deported.

Just review his line of questioning in a case allegedly about a delay of a legal notice:
During a tense hearing on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement procedures, federal Judge Mark Wolf paused to ask his witness a personal question.

“How many children do you have?” Wolf asked ICE field officer Thomas F. Brophy, who has served as acting field office director in Boston since February.

“Three,” Brophy said.

Can you imagine, Wolf asked, how it would feel to be facing deportation while separated from your spouse and children?

“I don’t know if I thought about that,” Brophy said.
Those questions were illegal and unethical, the questions had no relevance to the issue at hand, an alleged delay in a legal notice of no importance.

The question about a witnesses children or a nonsensical question about deporting an American citizen was not relevant to the matter at hand and was clearly designed to intimidate and humiliate the witness, an official of the United States executing his lawful duties; arresting illegal aliens.

Kritarch Wolf even allowed an unethical and illegal demonstration in court, and demanded that the government consider a staged video involving the illegal alien in question returning home and greeting her children.
Wolf hammered home the human impacts of the clerical errors made by the agency during Tuesday’s hearing.

“You see when you look at that video for example when the government breaks the law it can have profound human consequences,” Wolf said.
An illegal alien in detention is not a “profound human consequence” and was again clearly designed to appeal to emotion rather than the law, all in service to Kritarch Wolf’s own ideology rather than the law.

And the whole exercise of intimidating ICE officials had its intent, the intent of Kritarch Wolf, to end arrests of arrogant illegal aliens who appear at immigration offices to demand immigration benefits after absconding from a deportation order.
Federal agents in Massachusetts have halted the controversial practice of arresting undocumented immigrants who are visiting government offices in hopes of gaining legal status, an immigration official told a federal judge Tuesday. [ICE Agents in Mass. Halt Controversial Practice of Office Arrests, by Maria Cramer, Boston Globe, May 23, 2018]
Sadly, instead of standing up for the independence of the Executive Branch, a minor bureaucrat in ICE overturned a Presidential order to arrest all illegal aliens ICE encounters. The bureaucrat, Thomas Brophy, appears to be a #DeepState operative working to thwart immigration enforcement.
The decision represents a reversal by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement and follows sharp questioning by a federal judge in Boston over the practice, which has drawn a legal challenge from the American Civil Liberties Union as a symbol of the Trump administration’s aggressive stance on illegal immigration.

In a tense court hearing Tuesday, Thomas Brophy, the acting director of Boston’s ICE field office, told US District Court Judge Mark L. Wolf that he ordered an end to the arrests on Feb. 16 after learning that immigrants seeking legal status after marrying US citizens had been arrested during scheduled visits to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services offices.
In fact, the Deep Stater Brophy, a mere acting official, has reinstated the infamous Morton Memos, the illegal and unconstitutional subversion of the immigration laws of the United States by former ICE Director John Morton.
Brophy said he told his officers “we were going to focus on public safety. We were not going to conduct those arrests [at government offices] unless there was a threat to national security or public safety.”
Brophy took it upon himself to overturn a written order of the President of the United States. This is insubordination and a usurpation of the authority of the President. On January 25, 2018, President Trump revoked the Morton Memos and any authority of ICE employees to ignore immigration law violations. The Obama policy of ignoring immigration law violations is no longer in effect. There was an election, but Brophy has apparently overturned the election of 2016 all on his own, as well as ignoring a written order from the President.
Sec. 2. Policy. It is the policy of the executive branch to:
(a) Ensure the faithful execution of the immigration laws of the United States, including the INA, against all removable aliens, consistent with Article II, Section 3 of the United States Constitution and section 3331 of title 5, United States Code;
(b) Make use of all available systems and resources to ensure the efficient and faithful execution of the immigration laws of the United States…
(d) Ensure that aliens ordered removed from the United States are promptly removed. [Executive Order: Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States, by President Donald J. Trump, January 25, 2017]
Furthermore, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security issued instructions to employees to act to arrest illegal aliens when encountered.
Except as specifically noted above, the Department no longer will exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement. [Enforcement of the Immigration Laws to Serve the National Interest, Memorandum by John Kelly, February 20, 2017]
The Deep State operative Brophy even cowardly blamed his predecessor for the policy of arresting illegal aliens despite the fact that arresting illegal aliens is now the nation-wide policy of ICE.
Brophy said that the practice had occurred under his predecessor, and he changed it when he took over the job in February. It was unclear Tuesday if the new approach represents a change nationally, or only in Massachusetts.
An ICE spokesman declined to clarify it.

As recently as March, ICE had publicly defended the practice as a strategy to keep officers safe while they conducted arrests of immigrants with longstanding deportation orders. In January alone, ICE arrested seven people at immigration offices in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, often immediately after they completed interviews as part of their bid to become legal residents.

“It has always been the case that an arrest could happen at USCIS offices,” a spokesman said in March, following the arrest of Lilian Calderon, a Guatemalan mother of two who was arrested by ICE on Jan. 17 at a government office in Rhode Island she and her American husband had visited to answer questions about her marriage.
While one can expect illegal and unconstitutional attacks on the President’s authority and actions from politicized kritarchs who are part of #TheResistance, such insubordination, cowardice, and unlawful activity by a bureaucrat is beyond the pale.

You can contact Deep Stater Thomas Brophy here:
Boston Field Office
1000 District Avenue
Burlington, MA, 01803
Phone: (781) 359-7500
Email: Boston.Outreach@ice.dhs.gov
Ask this Deep State operative on what authority he overturns an order from the President of the United States.

President Trump should also immediately fire Brophy for insubordination. We have seen the impact of his failure to fire those in the bureaucracy who sabotage his own policies. President Trump must immediately stop this contagion of minor bureaucrats thwarting his policies. This will only spread as saboteurs use the cover of kritarchs to thwart his policies.

#MeToo Meets Black Race Hoax and Results in Epic Fail!

 


"Blackish" hoaxer Sherita Dixon Cole
 

By Jerry PDX
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at 11:42:00 P.M. EDT

Black drunk driver Sherita Dixon Cole is arrested for drunken driving, and falsely accuses white officer of sexual assault. This from the article:
Dixon-Cole alleged that after she failed a field sobriety test, Hubbard had “suggested she could go home in exchange for sexual favors,” according to Merritt’s initial press release. Dixon-Cole said that after she refused, she was taken to Hubbard’s police car where she was “forcefully groped, fondled and vaginally penetrated during a prolonged arrest.”

She went on to say Hubbard continued his sexual advances on the way to the police station, even alleging that he offered to take her to a remote location where she could provide sexual favors in exchange for her release from custody.
Guess what? Cop had his body camera on the whole time and recorded nothing more than a polite and professional police officer doing his job.

Lawyer for Dixon-Cole has publicly apologized for his client, but when is the false accuser going to apologize? Maybe under threat of some kind of legal consequence for making a false claim she might say something, but without some leverage it won't happen. Racist, black hoaxers feel righteous about staging fake hate crimes, and will go to their graves unrepentant.

DPS Releases Body Camera Video of Ellis County Traffic Stop and DWI Arrest - 05.20.18
 


 

Texas Department of Public Safety
Published on May 22, 2018

On May 20, 2018, at approximately 1:32 a.m., a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper observed a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu traveling south on Interstate 35 in Ellis County near U.S. 287. The vehicle was stopped for a traffic violation. Based on the traffic stop, the driver was arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI). The driver, identified as Sherita Dixon-Cole, 37, from Grapevine, was arrested and transported to the Ellis County Jail, where she was charged with DWI. Following the arrest, spurious and false accusations related to this traffic stop were made against the Texas Trooper. Upon learning of those allegations, the Texas Department of Public Safety immediately took action to review the video in connection with this traffic stop and arrest. The video shows absolutely no evidence to support the egregious and unsubstantiated accusations against the Trooper during the DWI arrest of the suspect. The Department is appalled that anyone would make such a despicable, slanderous and false accusation against a peace officer who willingly risks his life every day to protect and serve the public. At the department’s request, the Ellis County District Attorney’s Office has reviewed video of the traffic stop and arrest, and authorized the release of the video. The department today proactively and publicly released the video captured by the Trooper’s body camera (which is posted here). (Note: Certain sections of the video have been blurred or rendered inaudible to protect information that is confidential by state statute, including Cole’s personally identifiable information.)

Laurie Essig: Hate Crimes Won't End Until Toxic 'Bro' Culture is Reformed
April 08, 2018
Chronicle of Higher Education

Laurie Essig is a professor of gender, sexuality, and feminist studies at Middlebury College. Her forthcoming book, Love, Inc., will be published by
the University of California Press.

The N-word scrawled on a wall. [A hoax, committed by the victim.] Swastikas on a Jewish student's door. [Ditto.] Telling Muslim women to take their veils off. Writing "feminazi" or "die dykes" on women's-center posters. [Probably more hoaxes.] On college campuses, these manifestations of hate are all too familiar. According to a recent Education Department report, campus hate crimes increased 25 percent between 2015 and 2016, with most of them directed at racial and religious minorities. [Fake stats.]

Colleges respond to hate in depressingly similar and ineffectual ways: Find the "bad apples," punish them [liar], make some public display of
"inclusivity" or whatever term is in vogue that year, and then move on ... until the next flare-up.

[Campus hate hoaxers are rarely punished.]

As someone who teaches [hates] about men and masculinities, I have come to believe that there is a way out of this mess. Let us start with the facts.

[Essig lives in a fact-free world.]

Hate acts are not randomly committed on college campuses. They are primarily committed by white, straight men against those who are not white, straight, Christian, or male.

[Blood libel.]

We cannot solve the problem unless we change the culture. There are efforts in that direction, programs at Stony Brook University and
elsewhere to call out and examine toxic masculinity, but too few.

"For years this 800-pound white [!] gorilla has been raging and screaming, and most of us have been loath to see it." The reluctance of colleges to confront the toxicity of white [!] masculinity reflects a similar reluctance nationwide. For years this 800-pound white gorilla has been raging and screaming, and most of us--educators, politicians, journalists--have been loath to see it. This was obvious when police described the confession tape of white (and homophobic and Christian-raised) Mark Anthony Conditt as "the outcry of a very challenged young man." (You can easily imagine how they would have characterized him if he were African-American and/or Muslim.) The Virginia Tech shooting was committed by a Korean-American, but the vast majority of mass shootings are by white males. Pundits ignore the obvious connection between mass shootings and white masculinity. We mark white mass shooters as suffering from "mental illness" rather than a cultural problem. Kimmel and Matthew Mahler point out that focusing on mental illness or "bad actors" shifts "the blame away from group characteristics to individual psychological problems, assuming that these boys were deviants who broke away from an otherwise genteel ... culture."

We do the same on campus when we pretend that hate crimes are randomly distributed rather than far more likely to be committed by white, straight men--embodiments of "normal" masculinity. [Blood libel.] These are the bros we see walking on any campus, hats backward, the guys who throw the parties, buy the booze, play video games more fervently than they study. The guys who tell each other not to be a "pussy" or a "fag," and live in such constant need for approval from their bros that they participate in hazing rituals that can cost them their lives. These are also the guys who help to create rape culture, even if they themselves don't rape. They don't stop it. They don't report it. They protect their bros.

[There is no campus rape culture, but there is a campus rape hoax culture. However, there is a black, Hispanic, and Moslem rape culture, just no white, heterosexual rape culture.]

These young men are drowning in their bro culture, failing at school, at relationships, even, according to some recent surveys of hook-up culture, at sexual pleasure. They are also being taught all the wrong lessons in guyland: that they can do what they want, say what they want, spend their time how they want, and still have a wonderful career and an amazing life. They suspect that might not be true, but they are paralyzed by the fear of
disapproval from the ruling bro-geoisie.

Let us return to the N-word scrawled on a wall. [Hoax.] There are a variety of questions we could ask: Who did this? What kind of punishment do they deserve? How can we restore [?] the community after such an event? But there are other questions we should ask too: How does white bro culture normalize the use of the N-word, like when these guys are playing Call of Duty or singing a rap song? How does the absolute commonness of this racial entitlement make writing the word on a wall not an aberration but rather a continuation of everyday practices? Even if an individual bro is opposed to writing the word in a public space, he still says it privately with his bros, uses it as a badge of honor, proof that he won't be defeated by "political correctness" and the "feminazis" who try to control him.

This is not a great way to enter the work world. The bros are frozen in their Mad Men lifestyles, but the men of the 1960s were responding to the social requirements of their time, social strictures that made telling racist jokes hilarious, that made sexually harassing your secretary par for the course, that privileged white men in ways that did not allow for any fair competition from other groups.

Now, #MeToo and economic and demographic changes mean that being a straight, white man is no longer a guarantee of privilege and wealth. No doubt structural sexism and racism will not soon disappear into thin air, but they are weaker. Nagging doubt that these bros are going on to successful careers, lives, and relationships only makes them angrier.

It is among colleges' jobs to prepare their students for the world. But instead of doing that for young, white men, we continue to pretend that the bros are all right. [No, you constantly condemn them, cheat them on admissions, and discriminate against them in grading.] Social-science [propaganda] data tell us otherwise. These young men are psychologically, and often physically, unhealthy, self-sabotaging, and furious, thwarting themselves and threatening others.

Instead of helping these students develop the skills they need to thrive, colleges fear alienating donors, sports fans, and frat alums. Never mind that toxic masculinity and aggrieved whiteness are curdling the cultures and ideals cherished by most students today, and by the successful citizens and alumni of tomorrow.

Even if an individual bro is not caught perpetrating an act of hate, he is trapped in an ugly parallel universe. There he is taught not to care about school, about women, about people of color, about LGBTQ people, about anyone who is different from him and his bros. His obsolete world is colliding with new global, cosmopolitan realities. Help him understand that. Or let him wallow in a corrupted yesteryear, and then wait for the next hate crime.

[But Essig thinks it's just great, if her allies are utter chauvinists.]

COMMENTS

Law Professor John Banzhaf n a month ago

Administrators and faculty would do well to remember that so-called "hate speech"--no matter how racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.--is fully protected under the First Amendment at state schools, and often at other schools under a variety of legal theories; at least in the absence of a
clear and present danger, an exacting legal standard.

Moreover, as my law school colleague Prof, Jonathan Turley explained, rarely do the hate incidents which frequently occur on campuses meet the standards of a hate crime. SEE: George Washington University Investigates Swastika Postings As Possible Hate Crime
https://bit.ly/2dYbvI6

Here's a summary of what happened when GWU administrators went over the line and tried to expel a student for so-called hate speech.

A student who momentarily posted an ancient religious symbol, which was briefly mistaken by another student for a Nazi swastika, was suspended from campus (including his dorm room and his religious center) and investigated for possible criminal prosecution--even though the Supreme Court has repeatedly held that the display of even the most hated of symbols, including the swastika, a burning cross, etc. is protected free speech. His expulsion was prevented only because I organized a resistance which led to worldwide condemnation and ridicule of my university's actions, threats of law suits, and of a reduction in alumni contributions, etc.

What are the data on who writes hateful comments on the walls, doors, and bulletin boards of other students? I am guessing that a very large share of these incidents remain unsolved. Of those that are solved, who are the perpetrators? What share of them are white, straight men? What other categories of people write such comments with regularity (if any)? There are many anecdotes and infamous incidents: has a researcher(s) collected data on these incidents over the last decade or so? If so, what can we learn from the data?

Arne Duncan: ‘School Guns for Me, but Not for Thee’ (Michelle Malkin)

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix
 

Crapweasel of the Week: Educrat Arne Duncan
By Michelle Malkin
May 18, 2018
Creators.com

Educrat (ED-yoo-krat) noun, usually pejorative. A government school official or administrator whose primary function is to spend tax dollars telling other parents what to do with their children.

Beltway education bureaucrats abhor families who choose to keep their kids out of public schools — unless it's to grandstand over gun control.

Behold Arne Duncan, longtime pal of Barack Obama and former U.S. Department of Education secretary, who called last weekend for parents nationwide to withdraw students from classes "until gun laws (are) changed to keep them safe."

Emotions are still raw after a teen shot 10 classmates and teachers to death in Texas last week. But Duncan has no excuse for his cynical, made-for-cable-TV exploitation of the Santa Fe High School massacre. Existing state laws banning minors under 18 from purchasing or possessing guns didn't stop the shooter. Neither did laws against possessing sawed-off shotguns or pipe bombs.

And contrary to hysterical early reports, the accused 17-year-old gunman did not use "assault rifles." So a "common sense" ban on "assault weapons" would not have saved lives, either.

But effective solutions to maximize students' safety and well-being seemingly aren't Duncan's goals. His mission is airtime. Publicity.
Entertainment. Provocation for provocation's sake. Show time — for the children, of course.

School boycotts are a "radical idea," he admitted to MSNBC. "It's controversial. It's intentionally provocative." Praising teacher walkouts and student protests, Duncan told The Atlantic he supported parent-initiated school shutdowns for gun control because "we are not protecting our kids... And the fact that we're not doing that — we're not willing to think radically enough to do it — I can't stomach that."

Ah, the royal, unstomachable "we."

Here's another thing I find hard to swallow: Education overlord Arne Duncan now championing the radical idea of parents exercising their autonomy to do what's best for their children.

As Obama's meddling power-hungry education secretary, Duncan attacked "white suburban moms" and their children who turned to homeschooling in protest of the top-down Common Core "standards"/testing/data-mining program. Duncan sneered that he found it "fascinating" that the grass-roots anti-Common Core revolt came from "white suburban moms who — all of a sudden — their child isn't as brilliant as they thought they were, and their school isn't quite as good as they thought they were."

This elitist control freak revealed his fundamental disdain for rabble-rousing parents who've taken educational matters in to their own hands. By characterizing the movement against Common Core as "white" and "suburban," Duncan also exposed his bigotry against countless parents "of color," like myself, who've long opposed Fed Ed's sabotage of academic excellence, local control and student privacy in school districts across the country.

Note that newly minted parents' rights advocate Arne Duncan never once advocated boycotting Chicago public schools, which he ran for eight years, for their abject failure to quell rampant school violence.

Nor has Duncan called for parents to demand their districts withdraw from the disastrous "PROMISE" alternative discipline program that he helped create. (After Duncan's protege, Broward County school superintendent Robert Runcie, initially denied that Parkland, Fla., shooter Nicholas Cruz had benefited from the program, he sheepishly acknowledged last week that Cruz had in fact been referred to the program and avoided criminal prosecution for school vandalism as a result.)

Nor has Duncan said a peep about systemic coddling of abusers in the classroom by teachers' union presidents in New Jersey and Ohio, as exposed over the past month by undercover investigative journalists at Project Veritas.

Instead, Duncan has won high praise and more media interviews for his phony boycott proposal. "My family is all in if we can do this at scale," he nobly tweeted.

But what his slavering fans in the liberal media won't tell you is that Duncan's wife works at and his own children attend the exclusive, private University of Chicago Laboratory Schools in tony Hyde Park, which a Lab Schools brochure brags is "patrolled by the University of Chicago Police Department and private security."

Armed, of course, for thine and thee, Arne. But not for we.

“If I can't go to Las Vegas - Neither can y'all”: Catch This Video of a Righteous Black Woman!

By Jerry PDX
Monday, May 21, 2018 at 5:30:00 P.M. EDT

Prescient words shouted by black (alleged) female Safira Allen to Spirit Airline passengers after she barged past a ticket counter after arriving late and caused a disruption that caused the plane to be evacuated. Yes, it is the fat hideous negress yet again blessing us with an epic, racist rant for the ages. Here is Fox News’ coverage of the incident.

The Fox News story doesn't have the full video, though. You can see it at the bottom of this page.

Ms. Allen is reveling in the attention she is receiving. She recorded everything herself, and posted on Youtube and Facebook. The last thing I want to do is add to her hit count, so I looked for a Youtube video that wasn't associated with her personally, or one of her race hoax collaborators.

However, I couldn't resist sneaking a peek at her Facebook page. This troglodyte actually has the nerve to call herself a modern day “Rosa Parks.” There are also plenty of racist blacks supporting her, though some of her fellow blacks are calling her out on her BS. You can spot the comments before she deletes them.

Also on the video, there seem to be only around a dozen or so black passengers on the plane but about 1/2 the people that called her out vocally as they were de-boarding were black. So much for solidarity with her own kind.

Warning: She is as hideous as they come, as well as obese, and possesses a voice that is worse than chalk on a blackboard. If you can't stomach the sight of her, just listen to the audio. You might survive that with your sanity intact… maybe.

The rant goes on for 20 minutes, and it is filled with racist comments, bizarre stream of consciousness assertions, insults toward everything and everybody, and she contradicts herself throughout. She also mentions having a daughter. Yes, it has bred and reproduced. Horrifying.

She claims that the airline shut the boarding down early and let a white woman in after it closed, while denying her the same privilege. That she is lying I have no doubt. What happened was that she arrived late, and made up the story of the white woman getting in before her.

What we are seeing here is the next stage in the evolution of black race hoaxes. There's no real staged hoax; you just break a rule, act like a psycho racist lunatic, film the whole thing, and then proudly claim to be a victim.

I can't even begin to comment on all that came out of this monster's mouth but go to 16:00 on the video, where she starts going on about how: If a white was acting up, how long would it take the poh-lice to get here, then she looks at the camera with that knowing look in her eyes and says “I been acting up for 30 minutes (and they ain't here yet)!” This bell curver doesn't even realize she wants to claim that cops are right on the scene when blacks are involved but then dilly-dally when it's whites acting up (but what's takin’ them so long?). Don't take my word for it. Listen for yourself, the whole thing all the way through... if you dare!

A woman flying out of an Atlanta airport refused to get off a Spirit Airlines flight when asked by police. Safira Allen, 25, was flying to Las Vegas when she claims that the cabin crew closed the gates 20 minutes early, causing her to miss her flight. Afterwards the airline told her to get off the flight. At this point, Allen took her phone out and began recording the situation. She began going on an obnoxious and racist rant. She said there wasn’t anything “holy” about Spirit Airlines. Allen said: “Y’all going to use Jesus’ name the Holy Spirit? No, that’s got to change, y’all need to be called something else, y’all need to change y’all name because nothing Holy Spirit about this airline, no. But y’all say ‘you-all represents God. Y’all need to quit playing with Jesus, and I’m not getting off this plane.” Allen caused the entire flight to be evacuated because of her behavior. In a Facebook Post Allen apologized for making all of the passengers deplane. Allen said: “I apologize if I inconvenienced anyone on that PLANE! But at the same TIME! I am standing up for people who have to deal with companies ripping them OFF and Making you the Suspect; when you Paid for their services.” Watch her bizarre rant Above:

New Book on Race Only Gets Two Topics Wrong

 

 

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

Those topics would be nature and nurture. Not only does the author, Gene Dattel, not reckon with natural differences that give blacks a low average IQ, VQ (virtue quotient), future orientation and work ethic, but he also ignores blacks’ cultural orientation: Some 90% of them have a genocidal hatred of whites, and accordingly refuse to ever assimilate to white norms.
 

Reckoning Without Race
By Raymond Wolters
May 18, 2018
American Renaissance

 

Integration will make blacks act like whites
 

Gene Dattel is a white man who was born and reared in a majority-black cotton county in Mississippi. He attended Yale University and Vanderbilt School of Law, and then worked for 20 years at Solomon [sic] Brothers and Morgan Stanley.

Mr. Dattel’s first book, The Sun That Never Rose (1994), described Japan’s structural economic problems at a time when many analysts thought the Japanese economy was an unstoppable juggernaut. In his most recent book, Reckoning with Race: America’s Failure (2017), Mr. Dattel attributes America’s current racial problems to the disproportionate failure of blacks to assimilate the mores and standards of American whites. Rather than place most of the blame on blacks, however, Mr. Dattel maintains that whites are primarily responsible for this failure.

As a boy growing up in the Mississippi Delta, young Mr. Dattel noted that a disproportionate number of blacks worked in the cotton fields, while most whites had other work. More recently, racial separation has continued, with most blacks living in predominantly black areas and most whites living among whites. According to Mr. Dattel, this separation explains black failure to assimilate mainstream American values. He is especially worried by black deviation from mainstream values with respect to marriage and the family.

This emphasis on the importance of integration was presaged as far back as 1954 when Harvard psychologist Gordon W. Allport published an influential book, The Nature of Prejudice. Allport held that members of different races would become friendly and assimilate if they mingled, but he warned that mingling must be between groups of “equal status.” Allport predicted that race relations would deteriorate if—as Mr. Dattel recommends—middle- and upper-class whites were forced to accept large numbers of lower-class blacks in their schools and places of business.
In 1964, another professor, James S. Coleman, then at Johns Hopkins University, produced an especially influential report, “Equality of Educational Opportunity.” He noted that black students who attended predominantly white schools got better grades than blacks who attended mostly-black schools. Coleman went on to become one of the most influential advocates of court-ordered busing for racial balance. Like Mr. Dattel today, Coleman thought racial mingling was the best way to teach mainstream values to blacks.

Later, however, Coleman came to believe that busing-for-racial-balance was wrong. He acknowledged that his earlier report had failed to recognize that the higher-scoring black youngsters who had attended predominantly white schools in the 1950s and 1960s were not representative; they were either the children of well-to-do blacks who lived in predominantly white neighborhoods or highly motivated students who volunteered to take long bus rides to get to a better school.

In the mid-1970s, Coleman withdrew his earlier support for court-ordered busing. He said that once black enrollment reached a “tipping point,” many whites would leave integrated schools. Speaking informally to a news reporter, Coleman said the departures stemmed from “the degree of disorder and the degree to which schools . . . have failed to control lower-class black children.” It was “quite understandable,” he said, for middle-class families “¬not to want to send their children to schools where 90 percent of the time is spent not on instruction but on discipline.” Mr. Dattel does not mention the work of Professors Allport and Coleman. He simply repeats his main theme: that massive integration is the best way to ensure that blacks adopt mainstream values.

Mr. Dattel knows a great deal about the history of race relations and the American economy. He argues that slavery was on the road to extinction when George Washington was inaugurated in 1789. There were only 700,000 slaves in the United States, and most were producing tobacco, indigo, sugar, and rice—crops that had a dark future because of competition from the Caribbean. But when Eli Whitney invented (or perfected) the cotton gin, English textile mills developed an insatiable appetite for American cotton. Consequently, by the time Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860, the number of black slaves had increased to more than four million. Cotton accounted for 60 percent of all American exports, and continued to reign as the single most valuable export until 1937.

 

King Cotton
 

In addition to fostering the growth of slavery and the economy, the cultivation of cotton also fostered racial separation. In many counties, most blacks hoed and picked cotton, while most whites had other jobs. After Emancipation, this separation became a formal system of segregation that, according to Mr. Dattel, prevented blacks from assimilating mainstream white culture.

Mr. Dattel notes that some blacks and many well-intentioned whites believed the freed former slaves should be resettled elsewhere. This was the goal of the American Colonization Society, whose members constituted a who’s who of antebellum America: James Madison, James Monroe, Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, Andrew Jackson, and many more. Their purpose was to establish a home for freed slaves in Liberia.

During the Civil War, many influential abolitionists and anti-slavery leaders favored colonization. One was Harriet Beecher Stowe, the author of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Another was President Lincoln, who asked an African American delegation, in 1862, “Why should the people of your race be colonized?” He answered his own question: “You and we are different races. . . . You suffer very greatly by living among us while we suffer from your presence.” Lincoln told another group of emancipated blacks, “There is an unwillingness on the part of our people, harsh as it may be, for you free colored people to remain with us.”

Mr. Dattel notes that after the Emancipation Proclamation and the end of the Civil War, many prominent Americans continued to explore the possibility of black emigration. In 1871, for example, General Benjamin Wade, an abolitionist Republican, traveled to Santo Domingo (now the Dominican Republic) with America’s most prominent black, Frederick Douglass to explore the possibility of annexing Santo Domingo as a home for freed slaves. The negotiations failed, however, in large part because black workers were needed in the South to satisfy the demand for cotton.

 

Frederick Douglass
 

Mr. Dattel also notes that the vast majority of blacks stayed in the South until white workers leaving for military service during the First World War caused labor shortages in the North. Northern employers then encouraged blacks to fill the vacancies, and about one million Southern black workers moved to the North—a phenomenon that often is called “The Great Migration.” The same pattern recurred, in even greater numbers, during and after the Second World War. Then, during the second half of the twentieth century, Mr. Dattell writes, “the full implementation of farm machinery and chemicals finally displaced the blacks in the cotton fields.”

Most Northern whites accepted blacks at work but opposed social mixing. They steered blacks into black neighborhoods, and, as a great deal of research on “white flight” has shown, they fled from communities and schools that accommodated more than a small minority of blacks.

This white flight bothers Mr. Dattel. He criticizes “unenlightened” whites for their “all-consuming fear” of racial integration. He pays no need to evidence that white fear was not irrational; that it was a reaction to a pattern of decline and decay that accompanied integration again and again.

Like most historians, social scientists, public leaders, and mainstream journalists, Mr. Dattel adheres to the Standard Social Science Model. He believes that “history” and “culture” account for any disparities in the way different groups behave. Nowadays, as University of Iowa historian Marshall Poe has noted, DNA researchers are “talking about intelligence, temperament, and a host of other traits.” They are saying that “the races . . . are differently abled in ways that really matter.” But Mr. Dattel sticks to the dogma that history and culture alone are responsible for group differences in behavior.

Mr. Dattel, however, does not give blacks a free pass. He thinks that in modern America blacks themselves are responsible, in large part, for their plight. He believes civil rights legislation has removed the major external barriers to upward mobility. He notes that educators and employers have gone beyond “non-discrimination” and have established thinly disguised racial preferences that are intended primarily to benefit blacks. He notes that America has declared war on “microaggressions” that allegedly have so traumatized blacks that they have not been able to take advantage of their opportunities. He dismisses the impact of “systemic racism,” “implicit bias,” and “stereotype threat,” and opposes yet more assistance in the form of a New Marshall Plan or expensive “school reform.” Instead, Mr. Dattel reports that “trillions of dollars” have already been wasted in a futile effort to assuage various “grievances” and close the racial gap in test scores. Instead, Mr. Dattel recommends massive integration as the sine qua non for spreading mainstream American values into the black community.

Mr. Dattel also argues that it is time for “a serious effort to change the elements of black culture.” Blacks should work to solve a “fundamental problem” that the black sociologist E. Franklin Frazier wrote about for decades: “the inability of the black male to enter the economic mainstream, which in turn prevented his ability to be a father and husband, which in turn prevented a stable family structure.” Mr. Dattel believes that thorough racial integration will solve all these problems.

Mr. Dattell writes clearly and has an appealing presentation. But there is unconscious irony in the title of his book, Reckoning with Race. Mr. Dattel does not reckon with race. He does not even consider the possibility that Mother Nature, not racial segregation, causes racial differences in behavior, success, and failure.

Black thugs arrested for murdering white policewoman in Baltimore

(WBAL) PERRY HALL, Md. —
All four teenagers sought by police after the killing of a Baltimore County police officer Monday are in custody.

Dawnta Harris, 16, was charged as an adult with first-degree murder in the death of Officer First Class Amy Caprio, charging documents state.

Three teenage males -- ages 15, 16 and 17 -- were also taken into custody, police said Tuesday morning. Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger said they believe they can charge the other three teenagers with felony murder. As of Tuesday afternoon, they had not yet been charged.

Caprio was responding around 2 p.m. to a call for a suspicious vehicle and a burglary in progress on Linwen Way in Perry Hall. Charging documents state that a 911 caller reported a suspicious vehicle in the area.

Baltimore County Police Chief Terrence Sheridan said Caprio arrived and saw black a Jeep. She followed it into a court, where it stopped and turned around. Caprio got out of her car and ordered the driver of the Jeep to get out.

Charging documents said Harris admitted that he "drove at the officer."

"He admitted that he partially opened the driver's door, but then shut it and drove at the officer," the charging …

A source familiar with the case said the officer's body camera video gives a clear view of her standing in street as the vehicle comes at her. She fired one shot and got hit by the vehicle and was thrown.

Sheridan said the Jeep struck Caprio and drove over her, seriously injuring her. Caprio was critically injured and was taken to MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, where she died around 2:50 p.m.

The medical examiner ruled Caprio's death a homicide by multiple trauma to the head and torso.

Breaking News: Another Victim of Diversity in Grand Rapids

49-year-old white woman Shannon Schoen was murdered in a robbery attempt today in a nearby Wyoming, Michigan gas station, by—it appears—
a black male. TV8 WOOD is reporting a standoff in the thick, black ghetto area of 900 Franklin Street.

Their reporter is quoting police as identifying the suspect as Willie Bryant. They also say Bryant's father is worried about Bryant's mental condition and the possibility of a fatal outcome.

The victim, Ms. Schoen, had worked at the gas station for seven years and had four children. I will keep you posted on the standoff.

Wyoming is a stone’s throw south of Grand Rapids, while the suspect is holed up in Grand Rapids proper.
 

Update: Monday, May 21, 2018 at 5:50:00 P.M. EDT

More about “the Standoff.”

As often happens (at least around here) when police surround a suspect’s house, when they finally decide enough is enough—and break in—no one is home.

Police had gotten information that a Cadillac had been the vehicle used in the escape, and found it on Franklin. Witnesses had said two blacks were in the Caddy and police made one arrest on Franklin, but the other suspect got away. The area is now the subject of a manhunt.

Other info on the robbery/murder.

One of the blacks entered the store and shot the woman. When the owner came out, he was told, “This is a robbery.” The owner said, “We have no money here” and the suspect shot the white female clerk again—NOT the owner.

That's the latest.
 

Update: Monday, May 21, 2018 at 6:14:00 PM EDT

Further news:

The father of Willie Bryant Jr. was just on WOODTV, asking his son to turn himself in. The BIG news, was the info given by Bryant, that a female, living on Thomas Street, was critically wounded by gunfire last night—and that police suspect Bryant is responsible for that crime as well as today's robbery/murder.

The manhunt continues.

By the way—Willie Bryant Sr. is black as coal.

Mets Slated to Get Bombed Tonight by the Marlins

By Nicholas Stix

We’ve got Jason Vargas, 35, starting tonight. Vargas (0-3) has started three games, never lasted beyond the fourth, and has an era of 13.86.

That was not a typo.

Vargas gives up hits, walks, and homers. Outs, not so much.

Last year, Vargas had a career year, in which he went 18-11 and led the AL in wins. Before that, he was a bum, and now he’s a bum.

What does that make you think of?

Meanwhile, the Mets have only four arms, and some of them shaky, to fill out a five-man rotation: Jacob de Grom, Noah Syndergaard, Zach Wheeler and Steven Matz.

Moronic, Evil, Kelly Clarkson: We Need to Disarm All Law-Abiding Gun Owners, and Turn Everywhere into a Kill Zone!

 


“Host Kelly Clarkson speaks onstage during the 2018 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 20, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada”
 

By Nicholas Stix

Clarkson wants action? Here’s some: Eliminate all “gun-free” zones.

Some people will object to me calling Clarkson “evil.” Well, The Boss once argued that one of the distinctions between wickedness and evil, is when you murder someone. Well, supporting “gun-free” zones and so-called gun control entails supporting murderers, because criminals will always have access to guns, and people who want to engage in wholesale slaughter will always be drawn to areas with large numbers of unarmed prey. “Gun-free” zones are more accurately called kill zones.

Kelly Clarkson, who was born in Fort Worth, is an example of a politically correct Southerner. The racial socialist media love to feature such people as “representative” of the South. Louisiana-born-and-bred Terry Bradshaw is as pc as they come, and that’s why he’s been welcome as a studio NFL talking head.

In 2000, when his Pittsburgh Steeler teammate, quarterback Joe Gilliam died, Bradshaw said on camera, choking up, “The racial profiling of black quarterbacks has got to stop.”

What the heck was Bradshaw saying? That Gilliam should have had four Super Bowl rings, and Bradshaw should have warmed the bench?

Nobody “racially profiled” Joe Gilliam. If anything, he got more of a shot than he deserved. And he blew it, by becoming a drug addict. But that’s the kind of pc propaganda the suits demand from Southerners.

If Clarkson weren’t pc, she would not have been given the plum job of hosting the Billboard Awards last night. When Hank Williams Jr. criticized the John Doe calling himself “Barack Obama,” ABC summarily fired him from doing the opening musical sequence to Monday Night Football, after 22 years.
 

Kelly Clarkson Asks for Action Instead of a Moment of Silence at the Billboard Music Awards
By Andrea Park

CBS News

Kelly Clarkson refused to ask for a moment of silence at the Billboard Music Awards to honor the Texas school shooting victims on Sunday night, but the show's host said she had her reasons. Instead, the singer said that she wanted real change, and she did not think a moment of silence would accomplish that.

Clarkson, who has spoken out before against gun violence, talked about how she was from Texas. She said, "Once again, y'all, we're grieving for more kids that have died for just an absolute -- no reason at all."

Clarkson continued, "They wanted me to do a moment of silence. I'm so sick of moments of silence. It's not working. Like, obviously."

She paused as she choked up, "So why don't we not do a moment of silence? Why don't we do a moment of action, why don't we do a moment of change? Why don't we change what's happening? Because it's horrible."

"I wasn't surprised, I was just scared," Texas high school student says after shooting

The audience applauded, and Clarkson talked about being a mom of four.
"Mamas and daddies should be able to send their kids to school, to church, to movie theaters, to clubs — you should be able to live your life without that kind of fear. We need to do better. We're failing our communities, we're failing their families," she said.

"Instead of a moment of silence, I want to respect them and honor them with tonight," she said. "Y'all, in your community where you live, your friends, everybody -- let's have a moment of action, let's have a moment of change."

Then Clarkson introduced Ariana Grande to the stage to perform.

Grand Rapids Anonymous’ Waking News Media Nightmare

By Grand Rapids Anonymous
Sunday, May 20, 2018 at 1:20:00 P.M. EDT

One of the morning TV shows, I believe it was Sharyl Attkisson, ran a story about a Muslim terrorist—who supposedly has changed his ways—and is now working with US authorities to deprogram radicalized nutjobs.

Question: “Many people believe, once a terrorist—always a terrorist. Is that true?”

“Reborn terrorist's” answer (in Arabic): “No.”

My answer: Look at history. When have Muslims—as a group—NOT wanted to spread its religion and doctrine (with war and annexation of Christian countries thrown in, at no charge)?

Stories like this one, and many others, broadcast on a monthly basis, attempt to sedate the viewer's minds long enough to allow immigration to work its magic, before we grasp what's happening.

“Don't worry, white America, these people (Mexicans, Muslims, MS-13) are not violent—and if they are, we can change them to be good neighbors.”

That fraudulent theme and its dishonest strategy has already been attempted with blacks portrayed as “harmless,” “misunderstood” and “victims,” by liberal politicians and the MSM.

Their mantras have paved the way for “harmless” blacks to invade white, middle-class areas, with the resulting Pandora's Box of woes unleashed in those areas. White drug addiction, previously safe, financially sound neighborhoods turned into crime-infested ghettos within a couple years.
There was a documentary, on NatGeo last night, called Prison Nation—and a particular segment, describing how blacks and Mex prisoners, when they were on the outside—targeted whites for drug dealing.

I already knew that, but the powers that be (who must know it, too) only speak of inequities against blacks, and not the miserable ramifications of blacks living in white areas.

Lesta Holt has a daily “Inspiring America” report on “Negro Nightly News,” which is nothing but a pro-black PR segment.

Amazingly, one day, I turned off Lesta's propagandist feature, about a black female who graduated college, and turned on CBS—only to see the SAME black woman!

So as usual, it's us (white America) vs. them (you know who they are).

As a side note: Lesta told us the birthrate of the United States is at a 40-year low (he stated this while showing a photo of a black woman holding a black baby).

Can you believe THAT? I repeat, whites have GOT to start reproducing, or the black woman Lesta showed, will singlehandedly turn the entire country into a black ghetto (you can be sure HER birthrate is not at a 40-year low).

Hear the Most Complete Version of Aaron Copland’s Score to the Movie Version of Thornton Wilder’s Play, Our Town (1940)

 

 

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

About 30 years ago, I heard that Our Town, then 50 years old, was the most often produced play by American schools.

Thornton Wilder won one of this three Pulitzer Prizes for Our Town, back when the Pulitzer was the gold standard, rather than the dross it is today.

Our Town was so popular, because it cost virtually nothing to produce, with the “set” consisting of a bunch of folding chairs, and because of the elemental power of its story, which is anchored in the narrator and the heroine, Emily.

It’s set in Grovers Corners, a New Hampshire town in a story in which the drama derives from quotidian matters of life: Birth, childhood, courtship, marriage and death.

To enjoy the story, one must identify with, or fall in love with Emily.

All over America, there were surely thousands of tear-stained copies of Our Town.

Terms of Endearment (1983) works in a similar fashion. One must identify with, or fall in love with the heroine, Emma (Debra Winger), for the picture to work. If you take Emma into your heart, the picture’s a masterpiece. If not, it’s a waste of two hours.

Wilder supposedly wrote the play as a Valentine of thanks to the town of Peterborough, where he had spent a year as a visiting writer, and which served as the model for Grovers Corners.

Today, most schoolchildren have probably never even heard of this masterpiece, and God only knows what plays the schools are producing. Race propaganda? Sex propaganda?
 

Aaron Copland was one of the men who revolutionized movie music in the 1930s and ‘40s.

During the silent era, my understanding is that while some pictures (e.g., Birth of a Nation in 1915, or Metropolis, in 1927) had a dedicated musical score, others had music done quickly by orchestra conductors or organists for different movie theaters, such as Page Cook recounted the young Ken Darby (1909-1992) doing, in her introduction to Darby’s Hollywood Holyland: The Filming and Scoring of The Greatest Story Ever Told.

After his graduation from Santa Monica High (for which he wrote the alma mater still in use today), Ken took a postgraduate course in advanced composition with Doris Moon, together with classes in Junior College. He worked at a job in a gas station from 2 to 8 a.m., slept from 8:30 until 2 p.m., attended classes until 5, practiced till 9, played the pipe organ at the Forum Theater from 9:40 till closing, and on Sunday evenings, scored the silent flicks at the swank Uplifters Club on an outdated Skinner organ. Ken recalls: “I’m not a little appalled by the effrontery of that skinny youth who dared match his improvisations to the films shown there. Such is the naïve confidence of the young. It was heady stuff to be tolerated by those celebrities. They never complained, but they never increased my salary: $10.00 per film, no questions asked.”
The talkie era immediately brought musicals with it, but somehow there was a problem with movie music for non-musicals. Many of the early pictures had little or no music (e.g., It Happened One Night, in 1934).

That changed radically, with Max Steiner’s ambitious score for King Kong, in 1933. Steiner was joined, in short order, by fellow émigré Erich Wolfgang Korngold (e.g., Captain Blood (1935)), and by the late 1930s, music for non-musicals was a major part of every big studio, with its own Oscar categories.

Copland scored his first feature, Of Mice and Men, in 1939, for which he was nominated for two Oscars. He was up for another two Oscars for Our Town, the following year, one for The North Star (1943), a communist propaganda flick made as a good will gesture to our Soviet allies, and won his first and only Oscar for The Heiress (1949).

(For my money, Copland’s composed his greatest movie score for The Red Pony (1949), for which he was not nominated.)

However, Heiress director Willi Wyler butchered Copland’s score. Copland responded by refusing the Oscar, and fleeing Hollywood for 13 years.

Marxists took advantage of the situation by weaving one of their blacklisting myths around Copland’s departure from Hollywood.

From Tom Wolfe’s 1976 essay, “The Intelligent Coed’s Guide to America”
Via Scurvy Oaks

“The next thing I knew, the discussion was onto the subject of fascism in America. Everybody was talking about police repression and the anxiety and paranoia as good folks waited for the knock on the door and the descent of the knout on the nape of the neck. I couldn’t make any sense out of it. I had just made a tour of the country to write a series called “The New Life Out There” for New York magazine. This was the mid-1960’s. The post-World War II boom had by now pumped money into every level of the population on a scale unparalleled in any nation in history. Not only that, the folks were running wilder and freer than any people in history. For that matter, Krassner himself, in one of the strokes of exuberance for which he was well known, was soon to publish a slight hoax: an account of how Lyndon Johnson was so overjoyed about becoming President that he had buggered a wound in the neck of John F. Kennedy on Air Force One as Kennedy’s body was being flown back from Dallas. Krassner presented this as a suppressed chapter from William Manchester’s book Death of a President. Johnson, of course, was still President when it came out. Yet the merciless gestapo dragnet missed Krassner, who cleverly hid out onstage at Princeton on Saturday nights.

Suddenly I heard myself blurting out over my microphone: “My God, what are you talking about? We’re in the middle of a … Happiness Explosion!”

That merely sounded idiotic. The kid up in the balcony did the crying baby.
The kid down below did the raccoon … Krakatoa, East of Java … I disappeared in a tidal wave of rude sounds … Back to the goon squads, search-and-seize and roust-a-daddy …

Support came from a quarter I hadn’t counted on. It was Grass, speaking in English.

“For the past hour I have my eyes fixed on the doors here,” he said. “You talk about fascism and police repression. In Germany when I was a student, they come through those doors long ago. Here they must be very slow.”

Grass was enjoying himself for the first time all evening. He was not simply saying, “You really don’t have so much to worry about.” He was indulging his sense of the absurd. He was saying: “You American intellectuals—you want so desperately to feel besieged and persecuted!”

He sounded like Jean-François Revel, a French socialist writer who talks about one of the great unexplained phenomena of modern astronomy: namely, that the dark night of fascism is always descending in the United States and yet lands only in Europe.”
