“To summarize, Smollett was brutally beaten in less than sixty seconds in a diverse, anti-Trump city. His violent, racist attackers knew he starred in a show that is not generally watched by people likely to be Trump supporters, or who would know his sexual orientation. They also somehow believe that their diverse, anti-Trump city is MAGA country. Additionally, in his own words, Smollett fought off his attackers while simultaneously pinned to the ground, talking on his cellphone, and holding onto a Subway sandwich.” – Robert Hampton, “The ‘hate crime’ against Jussie Smollett” – The Unz Review, Feb. 5th, 2019.

“But what does it say about America’s alleged ‘systemic,’ ‘structural’ and ‘institutional’ racism when, in 2019, the cupboard is so bare that ‘racist attacks’ have to be manufactured? Last year, in a span of a few weeks, three black motorists claimed they were victims of racism by the white cops who pulled them over… But they were all unaware that they were being recorded. The tapes show all three were lying. The cops involved were courteous, polite and respectful. The black motorists lied about the white cops. But if not for the recordings, who knows what might have happened to the careers of the officers.” – Larry Elder, “Smollett supporters – rooting for a modern lynching” – Toronto Sun, Feb. 24th, 2019.

“With a lot of blacks, there’s quite a bit of resentment along with their dissent, and possibly rightfully so. But we can’t all of a sudden get down on our knees and turn everything over to the leadership of the blacks… I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people.” – The late actor John Wayne, quoted by Alex Perry in “Twitter reacts to 1971 John Wayne interview” – MSN, Feb. 19th, 2019.

“Every year, the grifters of the Southern Poverty Law Center release their new ‘hate map’ and claims a huge rise in ‘hate groups’, even if they have to fake the increase. And, ever since Trump’s victory, the SPLC invariably blames the increase on President Trump… This time around, the Southern Poverty Law Center blames the increase in white nationalist hate groups on Trump. And then, confusingly, the increase in black nationalist hate groups on Trump… Trump has energized black nationalist hate groups – typically antisemitic and anti-LGBT organizations – with an increase to 264 from 233 in 2017.” – Daniel Greenfield, “Southern Poverty Law Center blames Trump for increase in Black Nationalist hate groups” – FrontPageMag, Feb. 21st, 2019

“In 1970, Orange County was 86 percent white. By 2004, the massive growth in non-white population (mostly Asians and Hispanics) pushed whites to just 49 percent of population. This demographic transformation ensured Democrats won all seven congressional house seats in 2018 election, a stinging reminder that demography is destiny… It is likely there will be a movement to rename John Wayne Airport. After all, what does John Wayne have to do with the new population of Orange County, and, more broadly, California? And what does this new population have to do with the America that existed before the 1965 Immigration Act?” – Paul Kersey, “The attack on John Wayne is an attack on White America” – The Unz Review, Feb. 19th, 2019.
