That’s interesting

Popular investor Marc Faber, author of the “Gloom Boom & Doom Report” newsletter, wrote in his most recent edition that he was glad the U.S. had been founded and ruled by white people rather than black people.
“And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look like one day anyway, but at least America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority,” Faber wrote in the newsletter, according to CNBC.

OK, a tad over the top perhaps, some will regard it as insulting. He’s got the right to say what he wants just as all others do to react to it. Shrug.

There was that comment by the ABC cameraman (??) watching the corpses flow over the waterfall somewhere in Africa who said along the lines of Thank God my ancestors were enslaved and shipped.

When asked if he stood by his statements, Faber shamelessly refused to back down from them, but indicated he still believed they weren’t racist.

Shamelessly?

    When asked if he stood by his statements, Faber shamelessly refused to back down from them, but indicated he still believed they weren’t racist.

    The problem is that he was shamed. He has been able to be honest – perhaps after a couple of Scotches – but he has still bought into the Left’s worldview.

    Who gives a sh!t if it is racist or not? It is true. Everyone knows it is true. While few people are brave enough to say it, we all know it is true. It is reality whether it is racist or not. You can call relativity racist if you like. It will still be true.

  2. Like they say, truth often hurts.
    But a tad under the top, surely?
    Zimbabweans at least got the benefit of the period of enlightened British rule. A black colonised N. America would have got the ones that didn’t. Think Congo.

  3. Free speech covers it. Any who don’t like that can go to Hell.

    Or next best, Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore (say hello to the “Violence Guy” he has a fund of stories about what a lovely place it is to live in) and New Orleans.

  4. I decided some time ago that everyone is a racist, if judged by their actions rather than their words. Racists, no doubt, in different styles and to different degrees, but racists just the same, under one or other meaning of that word.

    Put otherwise, the word racist has been so distorted and diluted in meaning that it now applies to everyone and in that sense, therefore, distinguishes no one.

  5. It is racist to suggest black people cannot run countries, but that all white countries are run well because white people run them.
    Look at great economic job Barack Obama did.
    Plus imperialism and racism, by Britain, England,, Spain, and France are causes of many nations dominated by black people being poor.
    Imagine if a country took over our nation for 100 years and ran it just for their benefit.
    Look at how poor Ireland was, until it joined the EU.

  6. There was that comment by the ABC cameraman (??) watching the corpses flow over the waterfall somewhere in Africa who said along the lines of Thank God my ancestors were enslaved and shipped.

    Muhammad Ali said as much, and said it publicly, after returning from fighting George Foreman in Zaire (“The Rumble In The Jungle”).

  7. And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look like one day anyway, but at least America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority.

    I cannot tell you have many African immigrants have told me the same over the past 16 years.

    Once I was referred into a business owned by two recent immigrants from Ghana. The minute I was introduced, one of the Ghanaians turned to the guy who’d bought me and said: “Thank you for bringing us a white man. He will not cheat us. Black men do nothing but cheat… American, African, it doesn’t matter, black men are no good.”

    He was dead serious, and he was coal black himself.

  8. Richard? Colonialism by England and Britain? Wow! Those British colonies turned out pretty poorly.

    South Africa compared to the rest of Africa Hong Kong, Singapore Aus and NZ compared to Asia and the Pacific.

    anon – “Anyone who still thinks that race makes you rich should read [Why_Nations_Fail] It is fascinating.”

    But is it true? Or are they just defining their terms in ways that make their argument work? What is an exclusive or inclusive economy apart from whatever the authors want it to be?

    Britain gave exactly the same set of institutions and (largely) politics to three sets of islands – Jamaica, Mauritius and New Zealand. Parliaments. Law Courts. Moderate Fabian socialist parties. Jamaica is a waste land. Mauritius is the richest country in Africa – which is not saying much. And New Zealand is one of the nicest places in the world to live. Although it is about 66% as rich as its near neighbour Australia. Which has a lot fewer Pacific Islanders and Maoris.

    Go on, explain the differences without using race.

    Dennis the Peasant – “Muhammad Ali said as much, and said it publicly, after returning from fighting George Foreman in Zaire (“The Rumble In The Jungle”).”

    Dinesh d’Souza said that Cassius Clay said as much. I don’t think there is actual evidence although I would like to see it. Eartha Kitt is also alleged to have said something along those lines but I have never checked.

  10. So Much For Subtlety

    Why is Africa so poor? It is hard to say, but I am pretty sure the UN is working hard to find a solution:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5001502/Robert-Mugabe-appointed-goodwill-ambassador-WHO.html

    Life expectancy in Zimbabwe dropped from 61 in 1985 to 44 in 2003, according to World Bank figures, largely down to the nation’s crumbling economy and widespread poverty. Life expectancy has since recovered – but is still not as high as it was in the mid-1980s

    I am not sure it is possible for the West to help. As the West is in full retreat from its values as it appeases the new official religion of the West – and don’t you dare commit any sort of blasphemy:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5001452/Man-NOT-guilty-rape-did-not-know-illegal.html

    A man has been cleared of raping his wife after a judge ruled that he did not know his behaviour was criminal in Canada.

    Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert Smith said prosecutors had failed to establish that the man knew it was against the law to have sex with his wife without her consent.

    I look forward to Jessica Valenti and Amanda writing articles condemning the patriarchal culture that leads to this sort of rape culture. Any time now. In 3 … 2 … 1 …

  11. SMFS – this was fun, too:

    “His defence was that during the period of the alleged incident, he had been told to abstain from sex after having a hair transplant.
    But the judge dismissed it, explaining there was no evidence to show it was standard medical practice to abstain from sex in such cases.”

  12. A big problem is that any kind of free market, neoliberal approach will have continued mass immigration into Europe, N America, Australia etc. from poor third world countries. i.e. we will at some point cease to be the majority in these countries. And then they will no longer be what they currently are, and will be more like 3rd world shitholes, and we will have no place in the world to hide from punitive socialism, anti racism redistribution, reparations, and positive discrimination.

    The question is why do we do this, and why does nobody offer an alternative? It is a serious problem. Why are white people incapable of thinking in terms of their interests as a group when everyone else does it furiously?

  13. What is being done to Europe is pretty much criminal. It amounts to a form of genocide. In future if trends continue then actual physical genocide is not unlikely.

    Why immigration from other cultures here, a place that is historically 100% white? What is the justification for it, if not to hurt white people, reduce their numbers, balkanise their countries, reduce their voice and influence in the world? Who wants this to happen, and why?

    Serous question.

  14. MC–You are correct. Wakanda has long been the most advanced nation on Earth. Unless you count the much smaller principality of Gorilla City hidden away in Central Africa behind its shield of Invisibility. Invented by the super-intelligent talking Apes who built and inhabit that shining pinnacle of civilisation.

    Marred only by the nefarious activities of its one renegade the infamous Gorilla Grodd. A telepathic super-genius criminal and long time member of the Council On Foreign Relations and Bilderburg attendee.

    Indeed as Grodd often uses his telepathic powers to disguise himself as a fat human it may be that we all here know him under an assumed identity.

  15. Look at great economic job Barack Obama did.

    Either you have a very dry sense of humor or you are a moron.

    I reckon Richard West is on a wind-up: I concluded this when in a recent thread he promoted Glasgow Celtic soccer club in an anti-racist diatribe.

  16. @tomsmith:

    “The question is why do we do this, and why does nobody offer an alternative? ”

    It’s that, to our rulers, it’s better for the West to be destroyed than to be called a ‘Racist’.

  17. “It’s that, to our rulers, it’s better for the West to be destroyed than to be called a ‘Racist’.”

    That sounds too stupid to be true.

  18. You think that it has just happened by coincidence in almost every majority white country in the world, at the same time (post WW2), because everyone simultaneously decided they didn’t want to be called a racist? Sounds quite unlikely to me. Although it sounds quite tinfoil hat, it looks planned to me.

  19. Who are our rulers? And how do they manage to do this everywhere simultaneously?

    There are only a couple of possible answers, and believing either of them will get you labelled a racist and/or conspiracy theorist.
