After a few months of an autistic binge learning how to into video editing, I made this video about (((white genocide))) and the involvement of jews in it. It's my first time doing this so hopefully you all enjoy it. I've got more planned too, so be on the lookout. Planning on doing one on degeneracy, gender deconstruction, feminism, immigration, etc.

>Nicholas II
That entire family was massacred by Lenin's Commie Bolshevik kike firing squad. Their servants as well. The women and girls, when bullets were impeded by their jewelry, were stabbed with bayonets. And Russians typically reply with "Lenin was great man. Nicholas evil started WW1." As indoctrinated as Americans and the majority of Europeans.

Most people don't know that royal court of Nicholas was already full of kikes, they just used them as scapegoats and changed sides because people were too angry about their tyranny.

Going to need more about that. I do know his ministers were "anti semitic" and led pogroms against jews. He had protestors shot as labeled terrorists. His chief of staff Mikhail Alekseyev fucked everything up (as well as Rasputin) after Germany kicked their asses in WW1. Then the Bolshevik kikes viciously shot and stabbed his innocent family members after he abdicated the throne. This is the limit of what I know about the Tsar. Certainly not the best leader, but I admire the pogroms and murder of protestors. Antifa should be eliminated by firing squads today.

We can finally track evil criminals and racists and ensure that they don't step out of line or hide from the authorities keeping us safe! These new chips also allow us to contact family members if they become advanced enough, soon we can have facebook and twitter in our minds!

The only people who are afraid of this technology are those with something to hide, but if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear! People who claim that history has been falsified and rewritten are just evil racists who want to justify their racism and discrimination against other races! I can assure you I have nothing to hide, and these chips are going to progress the human race, the possibility of them being used to oppress us is absolutely inane!

Germany’s Far Right preaches Traditional Values. Can a Lesbian Mother be its New Voice?

By Anthony Faiola May 15 at 2:58 PM

BERLIN — The far right’s drubbing in the French election exposed the biggest challenge for European nationalists: convincing voters that they are no longer a bunch of intolerant haters. To argue that point, welcome to the political stage Alice Weidel, the improbable new voice of Germany’s far right.

In person, the cardigan-wearing former investment banker eschews fiery rhetoric in favor of almost academic answers. But there’s something else that distinguishes her from the populist pack. After days spent campaigning for the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, the 38-year-old lesbian goes home to her partner and two sons.

“My election and my high acceptance within the party show that, contrary to public perception, my party is tolerant,” said Weidel, one of two politicians elected last month to lead the AfD into Germany’s national elections in September.

Weidel’s rise is the latest expression of a growing, if seemingly ironic, trend. In their policies, nationalist movements in the West often oppose full gay rights, including same-sex marriage. But many such parties are increasingly trying to portray themselves as more tolerant than their images suggest, in part by making space for gay men and lesbians.

This, observers say, amounts to an attempt to broaden their appeal — not only to gays but also to voters who view such movements as overtly bigoted and exclusionary.

Weidel “is a signpost; she is there to say, ‘Look, we’re not only old, angry white men,’?” said Cornelius Adebahr, a fellow at Carnegie Europe.

Despite her massive loss, Marine Le Pen’s different strategy may be gradually working. Although the party opposes same-sex marriage, a 2015 poll showed that support for her party among gay couples rose from 19 percent in 2012 to 32 percent in 2015 — right after the November terrorist attacks in Paris.

“If you look at the history of the National Front, it was always a homophobic party — but with lots of homosexuals,” said Frédéric Martel, author of “The Pink and the Black: Homosexuals in France since 1968.”

Enter Germany’s Weidel, who last month was selected to help lead the AfD and is now tasked with helping the party avoid political implosion.

Founded in 2013 on the back of German angst over bailouts for Greece, the AfD morphed during the refugee crisis into an anti-immigrant nationalist movement that has opposed the building of new mosques and advocates leaving the euro currency union. Should the AfD crash and burn following losses by nationalists in the Netherlands and France, it would amount to a massive setback for the far right in Europe.

After strong gains last year in local elections, the AfD has taken a severe hit in recent months, with its poll numbers falling to single digits. Its problems came after explosive remarks by one of its prominent politicians, Björn Höcke, who appeared to play down Germany’s World War II guilt and Adolf Hitler’s atrocities.

Besides turning off potential supporters, his comments fueled a tug of war between moderates and hard-liners for the soul of the party. Caught up in the dispute, Frauke Petry, the face of the party, abruptly announced last month that she would step aside as its lead candidate.

In her place, the AfD elected two replacements: the more moderate Weidel and a hard-liner, Alexander Gauland, 76. Weidel concedes that it was an attempt to appease both sides of the movement.

Since then, some of her fiercest critics have been German gay groups. Markus Ulrich, spokesman for the Lesbian and Gay Federation in Germany, dismissed Weidel’s election as a “clever strategy” meant to distract from the AfD’s hard-line platform.

Yet Weidel’s appeal also stems from a characteristic that has helped her rise in the AfD: She is not a traditional politician. An economist, she graduated best in class at the University of Bayreuth and earned her doctorate in 2011. She worked in China for six years and speaks Mandarin. Her day job is consulting for start-ups.

In an interview with The Washington Post, she said she saw no contradiction between her party’s stated stance in favor of “traditional families” with “a father and mother” and her life with her female partner and children. Germany offers civil partnerships, she said, and she and her party remain in favor “of keeping the status quo.”

The pushback within the AfD against a lesbian as one of its leading voices, meanwhile, has been surprisingly muted. Some far-right websites have jabbed at Weidel. But for the most part, even fervent nationalists in the party appear to be backing her.

“We are fostering traditional values but aren’t ostracizing anyone,” said AfD politician Andreas Gehlmann, who once heckled a colleague from another party speaking about gay issues. “We also have black people in the AfD.”

Weidel condemns AfD politicians such as Höcke. Although she was initially attracted to the party because of its anti-euro stance, she also fiercely defends its anti-immigrant position — particularly against the decision by Chancellor Angela Merkel to welcome hundreds of thousands of refugees, many fleeing the Syrian war.

She says that neither she nor her party is “anti-Islamic.” But she described some conservative Muslims as “enemies of freedom” and said that those who do not integrate pose a risk to German culture.

She generally dismisses the criticism by fellow gays and lesbians.

“I was labeled by a gay magazine as the most dangerous homosexual in Germany,” Weidel said. “I called up my partner and said, ‘In Germany, especially in Berlin, we cannot show up at gay parties anymore.’ She was like, ‘We’ve never done that, and we won’t do that,’ so I have no problem.”

Weidel is a kosher conservative, civic-nat, used to work for Goldman-Sachs.
She, with Petry try very hard to expel Höcke, a proper nationalist but not NatSoc, out of the AfD. Höcke has a profound support from the base of the party, is head of the party in Thuringa.

The majority of the leadership of the AfD want to ban nationalist politicians from the AfD.

This week the party leadership of Saxonia and Germany voted to expel Meier a judge and ally of Höcke and the number 2 on the AfD list for the federal election. The party base supports Meier and made him number two, after Petry, in case the AfD wins some seats in September elections for federal parliament. It is expected that AfD will in parliament after the September elections.

Meanwhile, Spotted Together At A Southampton Party... Anonymous 07/05/2017 (Wed) 03:52:22 Id: c98d40 [Preview] No. 48400 del
While publicly polarizing average-joe America at every opportunity, it appears the 'elites' are having a blast 'together' behind the scenes..

OUT AND ABOUT IN THE HAMPTONS -- Lally Weymouth held her annual summer party last night at her house in Southampton.



There was a long gold carpet entrance from where the parking was to a big tent next to her house. She served champagne, rare filet, fried chicken, cornbread, a big chocolate cake, ice cream and cookies decorated as American flags. Brother Don Graham did a big tribute to toast Lally (whose birthday is tomorrow) and shouted out Steven Spielberg’s upcoming film about how Ben Bradlee and Katharine Graham challenged the government for the right to publish the Pentagon Papers in 1971 (Tom Hanks is playing Bradlee and Meryl Streep is playing Graham). Don made a big deal that Spielberg was there and jokingly conceived a Spielberg movie about Lally and described the cast (some actors and some in the room).



SPOTTED: Jared and Ivanka chatting with Joel Klein and Alan Patricof, Kellyanne Conway on the dance floor, Boyden Gray, Chris Ruddy, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and wife Iris, Katharine Weymouth, Mary Jordan, Richard Cohen, Margaret Carlson, Gillian Tett, Steven Spielberg chatting with Steve Clemons and Robert Hormats, Carl Icahn, Tom Lee (famous for doing a leveraged buyout of Snapple and now lives in Princess Radziwill’s house), David Koch, John Paulson, Dina Powell, Richard Edelman, George Soros and his wife Tamiko Bolton, former Florida Gov. and Sen. Bob Graham (Lally’s uncle), her cousin Gwen Graham (who is running for Florida governor), Maria Bartiromo, Ray Kelly, Bill Bratton, Jeff Rosen, William Drozdiak, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.).


As DailyWire.com writes, David Koch was at a party with George Soros? Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and Kellyanne Conway, too?

This should surprise absolutely no one. It must be noted that attending the same gathering as someone with whom you disagree isn't wrong, nor is it a sign that you are colluding with them. That said, it shouldn't come as a shock that these people — Soros, Conway, Kushner, etc. — were all partying together. They are the Washington elites. The majority of those in the D.C. political world are homogeneous. They may play enemies on the great American stage, but behind the curtain, this acting troupe is thick as thieves. This is actually a good lesson on perception. We, as voters, must be able to discern who is simply playing the game, and who is truly trying to change Washington for the benefit of the people.
The men and women who are doing everything they can to bring the United States back to constitutionalism are in the minority. It's our job to recognize the value in these people, and vote for them. It's also our job to see the actors for what they really are, rebuke them, and remove them from office.

Weymouth is also significant:

For example, the distance between the wings of the nose, also known as "nasal alare," are larger in people of West African, South Asian and East Asian ancestry than in people of European ancestry.

>So it's easy to understand why many people, past and present, "have this sense that human populations are very distinct and have been separated for a long time," said Mark D. Shriver, lead author of the study and a professor of anthropology at Penn State University. Still, he noted, "human populations have always split and come back together, split and come back together, so there's no separate origin."

>In fact, genetic differences between various population groups is not that great. Using noses as just one example, said Shriver, "the surface, the appearance of people in different populations is much greater than what the genetic differences show on average."

>So what accounts for the differences in nose shape across population groups?

>To answer this question, Shriver and his colleagues selected 2,637 individuals from a database of about 10,000.
