Sanity Ignored

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert at "Restoring Sanity and/or Fear."

District of Corruption

It was a memorable Halloween weekend.

Led by millionaires Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central, Blue America paraded around Washington in the highly anticipated “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.” The “Woodstock of the Millennials” drew a crowd of about 60,000 yuppies and hipsters on the National Mall. By most accounts, the crowd was a fraction of the size of Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally in August.

“Restoring Sanity and/or Fear” started around 11 AM CST. I watched it for about five minutes on C-SPAN (Stephen Colbert was emerging from “The Fear Bunker” as Evel Knievel) before yawning and turning the channel to watch the Virginia vs. Miami game on ESPN. There were more people in Charlottesville on Saturday watching the Cavaliers than there were with those clowns in DC.

Sanity Ignored: The Mind of Red America

The most remarkable aspect of “Restoring Sanity” was that no one in Red America seemed to know (or care) that it was going on. In all the conversations I had yesterday, I can’t remember anyone bringing up the Jon Stewart rally. The Heartland was preoccupied with Halloween and its traditional pasttime.

So what was Red America doing yesterday?

In Iowa and Michigan, “Reds” were watching Ricky Stanzi and the Hawkeyes destroy Michigan State:

In Alabama and Mississippi, their eyes were fixated on Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers on the road against Ole Miss. The grey jerseys didn’t work for the “Rebel Black Bears,” but at least Admiral Ackbar wasn’t disgracing the field in Oxford.

In Georgia and Florida, Red America was watching the World’s Largest Cocktail Party in Jacksonville between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators (both teams have struggled this year), which Florida won in OT with a field goal.

In Missouri and Nebraska, the Heartland watched Mizzou (after its thrilling goal post tearing down triumph last week over the No.1 Oklahoma Sooners) fall to the Cornhuskers in Lincoln.

On the West Coast, the question on the mind of Red America was whether USC could upset the Oregon Ducks, and how many pushups would the Duck have to do before collapsing from exhaustion.

Some other popular thoughts in Red America:

– Is it humanly possible for Tennessee to get any worse?

– Auburn vs. Oregon in Arizona?

– Can Alabama run the table and go to the national championship?

– Will Boise State ever get the respect it deserves?

– How many laptops would Urban Meyer buy to get Cam Newton to put on a Florida Gators uniform again?

Was anyone in Middle America watching the hipster faggots with Stewart and Colbert at “Restoring Sanity and/or Fear” on a Saturday afternoon on C-SPAN (on a Halloween weekend) at 11 AM CST and 10 AM MST? Unlikely.

Alternatively, how many people in Red America do you think spent the afternoon watching college football, the evening grilling steaks and burgers, and the night getting drunk at sports bars and Halloween parties?

Generation Irony? Woodstock of Millennials?

“Restoring Sanity” should have discredited the idea that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert speak for Millennials. Of the “more than 200,000” who RSVPd on Facebook, 60,000 actually showed up.

There were 15,000 Auburn fans alone in Oxford last night. In total, there were more people at the Ole Miss game than there were on the National Mall; more in Charlottesville, Lincoln, Jacksonville, Iowa City, Columbia or just about anywhere you look in Red America.

The Reddit constituency is a small vocal minority.

Restoring Sanity

Red America will be holding its own “Restoring Sanity” rally in what is almost certainly guaranteed to be a bloodbath for the Democratic Party in the Heartland.

An ugly picture emerges wherever you look: Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Indiana, Ohio, Alabama, South CarolinaPennsylvania, Arkansas, Arizona, FloridaVirginia, Wisconsin. The only bright spots are Christine O’Donnell in Delaware, Joe Miller in Alaska, Carl Paladino in New York, and John Raese in West Virginia who have stumbled toward the finish line.

In Virginia, the Democratic Party is set to be decimated, as the state shifts colors from purple to crimson. The same looks to be true of Iowa and Ohio. Political analysts will be pouring over the midterm data for months. An interesting “national conversation” about the White vote and Red America should be going on by the middle of next week.

The “great unwashed middle of the country” will deliver its verdict tomorrow. Get your popcorn ready.

  1. Thanks Hunter – and yes, you are right. Heartland America ignored the Stewart (not a British noble family, just another Jew from Jersey) restore Sanity rally.
    And yes, you are correct almost all of Heartland America was glued to the TV watching Negro Football players jump around to adoring White cheer leaders and White fans. I can’t really say either activity is something we want our White folks to do.
    Back to the subject of the Stewart – Colbert rally, I think in this case we should do a little “Jew awareness” education. As it is getting to be a big problem that Jew comedians on TV like Stewart and Al Franklin think that they are the ones who must lead/direct America.
    These Jews should be performing in the Catskills Borsch Belt – sure, they might be funny, but they don’t have any business posing as the political leaders of a 98% + non Jewish, White country.

  2. Stewart and Franken can lead the SWPL and others off the cliff as far as I’m concerned. He rallied his “base” and no more, and while he was at it he threw another taboo into their quest for being fashionable. His first statement told his cult to stop throwing about the “racist” lable so willy nilly. We have to admit being explicitly anti-white is not cool even for those on the left.

  3. Just as a humorous observation, There was one similarity between the rally to restore honor and the tally to restore sanity/fear, one that the folks who attended the latter would be loath to admit: both crowds were nearly all white.

  4. “jack ryan”
    Do you honestly still consider America a “White country” by definition? Since we Whites make up barely more than 65% of the population and are declining rapidly, that seems more than a little…er, optimistic.

    I would that it were so, of course, but refering to America as a “White country,” when a figure rapidly nearing 40%(God knows how many “Whites” in that 65-66% are hardly white at all)of the population are non-white just seems unrealistic at best. I haven’t heard anyone refer to America that way in some time, actually.

    As for “Stewart” and Co., had there not been mercifully brief coverage of it on the evening news, I would have no more idea it was going on that any Red-Stater. Since I occasionally do watch FNC, I did know more about Beck’s ML King love-fest, though only in passing for the most part. I am glad on both accounts. Just pure mush for the mushy-headed on both sides.

  5. On the mark, Jeff. Snotty liberals love to use the phrase “all White” as a pejorative. Stuff it in their faces.

  6. Why is Colbert dressed like Evil Knieval? Wasn’t he an icon to Middle America back in the 70s? He should be in drag instead.

    JR responds. Yes, you are quite right. Evil Knieval was a brave, Western White man hero to our people. Some Jew wrote a negative book about Evil Knieval and I believe Evil hunted him down and tried to break his arm with a baseball bat or he might have even successfully done so.
    So Jews want to be like adventurous, White men of action. The Superman comic is based on this Jewish fantasy of being super, physical men and not being dweebs, geeks, nerds, repellent little boys rejected by attractive women.

    Your quote reminded me of a Spengler quote where he writes that the rise of mass sports – among other things – is a sure sign of the “closing down of a Culture”:

    “To the world-city belongs not a folk but a mob. Its uncomprehending hostility to all the traditions representative of the culture (nobility, church, privileges, dynasties, convention in art and limits of knowledge in science), the keen and cold intelligence that confounds the wisdom of the peasant, the new-fashioned naturalism that in relation to all matters of sex and society goes back far to quite primitive instincts and conditions, the reappearance of the panem et circenses in the form of wage-disputes and sports stadia–all these things betoken the definite closing down of the Culture and the opening of a quite new phase of human existence–anti-provincial, late, futureless, but quite inevitable.” —- http://www.duke.edu/~aparks/SPENG7.html

  9. “Yet, in the later stages of Roman decline, the whole empire was deeply pessimistic, thereby sapping its own resolution. Frivolity is the frequent companion of pessimism. Let us eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die. The resemblance between various declining nations in this respect is truly surprising. The Roman mob, we have seen, demanded free meals and public games. Gladiatorial shows, chariot races and athletic events were their passion. In the Byzantine Empire the rivalries of the Greens and the Blues in the hippodrome attained the importance of a major crisis.

    Judging by the time and space allotted to them in the Press and television, football and baseball are the activities which today chiefly interest the public in Britain and the United States respectively. The heroes of declining nations are always the same – the athlete, the singer or the actor.”

    Sir John Glubb – “The Fate Of Empires” (Blackwell, 1978) – http://andwhatwillbeleftofthem.blogspot.com/2010/10/taste-of-fanny.html

  10. Can we refer to this unctuous Jew by his true surname, ‘Liebowitz?’ I think it does well to expose these anti-White chameleons.

    And the fact that most of the puffy, drunken White fans of Generation Wyde are engrossed in a child’s game instead of their survival, just doesn’t sit well with me, either.

    I understand your point, Hunter. But man, it doesn’t do much to lift the spirits.

  11. How does knowing about college football help White advocates? Because a lot of Whites are paying attention to it? I’m just curious if there’s a readily available answer and explanation to the question “is it good for Whites?”

  12. Irony, meet Hunter Wallace… Hunter Wallace, meet Irony…

    Hunter Wallace stars in The Blind Side 2. A rich black family adopts Hunter and helps him to become a world class sprinter and rap star.

  13. What was Red America doing yesterday?

    Why, you of all people ought to know Hunter. They were doing just what you have been writing about for many months now. They were “engaged with” mainstream America and not doing anything “fringe.”

    I’m just curious if there’s a readily available answer and explanation to the question “is it good for Whites?”

    There sure is, Murphy. The concise, simple answer stares us daily in the face.

    Lost in all of the analysis and explanation of “why White Nationalism hasn’t went anywhere” is what Occam’s Razor leaves us with. Any analysis that ignores a possibility, even if that possibility doesn’t sit well with you, is less than accurate and even less useful.

    The reason WN hasn’t went anywhere is right in front of our faces. But no one wants to even consider it, apparently. It is not because of bad leaders, kooks, weirdos, costume clowns, intellectuals who talk about fantasy ideologies that are beyond the kin of normal, everyday people, etc., as both American Conservative and Liberal movements are chalk full of all of these.

    The reason WN hasn’t “taken off” is for the same reason I could not tell you the score of any ballgame that takes place, or who the best teams and players are, and haven’t been able to do so for many years now. It is for the same reason I don’t go out after midnight and dig up dead bodies.

    Speaking of ballgames, i.e., entertainment, you will notice that politics is just another form of that to most Americans. They have their “teams” to root for, and that is all it is for them. Not the serious implication we assign to it.

    Politics are something to watch from the bleachers, for entertainment, for most Americans. Adult Americans do not form their own football teams to actually play. Heaven’s no. They have zero interest in that.

    And they are not interested in saving their culture, race, civilization, etc., either. Sure they will “say” they are, if you ask. But if you “ask” me, I might tell you I am very interested in medical school and being a doctor, but I have never bothered to attend med school or even take any test for admittance. That is because I am not really interested in it, else I would be a doctor.

  15. What was Red America doing yesterday?

    Why, you of all people ought to know Hunter. They were doing just what you have been writing about for many months now. They were “engaged with” mainstream America and not doing anything “fringe.”

    C’mon, mainstream America rocks! The economy is shit, tax dollars are being stolen and wasted, people are still dying in BS wars, got a crappy healthcare system, kids are getting dumber and have no future, government is spying on citizens left and right, White people are murdered, raped and robbed in astronomical numbers, etc….but damn it, millions of White men and women gathered to enjoy the beauty of multiracial teams, while blissfully cheering on their favorite, soon-to-be-millionaire black athletes. I don’t think “Blue” America or even Hollywood could do it more effectively.

    Congrats “Red” America!

  16. BTW, Jack Ryan, yes! Knieval did bust up that guy with a baseball bat. That was the end of his big money making days.

  17. I went to the pumpkin patch on saturday to pick up a jack-o-lantern and I saw two girls that the first thing that shot to my mind was “Obama Voters.” The kind I’d expect at that Comedy Central Rally. Two otherwise decent looking women who for some reason or other were sporting hideous looking “Buddy Holly” glasses. For some reason gays like that poofter on the B-52’s and up tight “liberal” girls seem to have embraced that bizarre fashion statement over the last few years.

  18. Yup, today “Horned Rimmed” glasses are cool. But for the last several decades since they first went out of style, these glasses were the to be ridiculed. Likewise, for many years if a guy wore boxer shorts he was a “nerd.” I can well remember women cracking jokes about if a guy wore them. But suddenly they were all the rage and briefs were for nerds.

    The dumb masses go with whatever is “in the air.” And they can turn on a dime. I’m waiting on “parachute pants” to be all the rage once again, since now women still talk about how awful they were. Needless to say, like with boxers, they will not remember ever making fun of them and will swear they were always the “in thing.”

  19. I hope Hunter Wallace jumps back into the discussion here and discusses his decision to promote College Football at OD, given the dissent of much of his commenting readership.

  20. Celestial Time is a good example of that segment of White Nationalists who have gone so far around the bend that they have effectively joined the counterculture. They are alienated from and hostile toward White America.

    The feeling is mutual.

  21. Murphy,

    1.) Like most Southerners, I enjoy college football.

    2.) Like most normal Americans, I don’t racialize every conceivable situation, or obsess over the Jewish Question. Otherwise, I would come across sounding like a kook who can be easily stereotyped and dismissed as crazy.

    3.) It is sad that you can’t watch a football game without asking “is this good for Whites.” That should prompt you to ask: how far have I drifted away from ordinary people.

  22. Brutus,

    The main reason White Nationalism hasn’t taken off is that White Nationalists are so alienated from (and sometimes hostile toward) their target audience that they can’t even communicate with them and come across sounding like they are from Neptune.

  23. Celestial Time is a good example of that segment of White Nationalists who have gone so far around the bend that they have effectively joined the counter-culture. They are alienated from and hostile toward White America. The feeling is mutual.

    Please, Mr. Wallace, enlighten others on your knowledge of what goes on in my life.

    I’m “alienated” in ways you only wish you could be.

  24. Sports is a form of entertainment, and choices in leisure and entertainment are largely a matter of preference. I really don’t see much difference in principle between picking on someone for watching sports versus playing golf, reading a book, riding a bike, listening to Beethoven, or watching a particular genre of film. You’re arguing against someone’s tastes and personal preferences. I’d say that if you don’t know anything about sports and don’t care to know there is nothing wrong with that. However, in making this choice you are essentially cutting yourself off from participating in a harmless leisure and social activity that millions of White men and women prefer. Again, there is nothing wrong with that but you will miss very easy opportunities to socialize with White people who don’t think like we do, build relationships, and possibly persuade somebody to take a look at our ideas. Also, If someone does a Google search on college football and lands here on OD because of this article, that isn’t a bad thing.

  25. Please, Mr. Wallace, enlighten others on your knowledge of what goes on in my life. I’m “alienated” in ways you only wish you could be.

    You have made your position clear in the comments multiple times. I distinctly remember you calling yourself a leftist. You certainly sound like one.

    That’s fine. There are plenty of people who are hostile toward Christianity and Middle America. It is just kind of amusing that these very same people expect the targets of their spittle and animus to respond well to their attempts at “White Advocacy” (or lack thereof).

    White Advocacy Lesson #1: Adopt a hostile posture toward your audience. Set up an “us. vs. them” dynamic.

    White Advocacy Lesson #2: Make a point of demonstrating that you have nothing in common with ordinary people.

    White Advocacy Lesson #3: Abstain from politics, but endorse the most anti-White candidates.

  26. LEW,

    There are plenty of good White players in college football. Tim Tebow has gone to the NFL, but you have Kellen Moore at Boise State, or Ryan Mallet at Arkansas, or Ricky Stanzi at Iowa. There are lots of Hispanics in boxing, but White Nationalists often speak fondly of Eastern European fighters.

    It is absurd to judge football (or any sport) on the basis of non-White participation. You have to participate in an integrated society in literally every other sphere of life: when you go to restaurants, go to see a movie, go to the grocery store, go to a gas station, when you walk in park, etc.

    I’m sure there are blacks who enjoy hunting and fishing. Tiger Woods plays golf. Does that mean Whites shouldn’t enjoy golf? There are non-Whites who read books and use computers. Should we give up books and the internet?

    This sort of silly thinking is what makes White Nationalists sound kooky. You also make a good point that by opting out of society WNs are similarly opting out of opportunities to influence their peers.

  27. It’s also important to encourage young White boys and men to play sports for the health benefits of athletics. Plus, kicking some loudmouth nigger’s ass on the football field or the basketball court is very satisfying, or at least it was for me. It builds confidence and, I would argue, racial consciousness because it refutes the idea that Whites are poor athletes which is pushed hard by this anti-White culture.

  28. I have found that taking an interest in college football has made my job easier. I can talk to anyone in Alabama about football, build a positive relationship with them, and then after getting to know them talk about other matters.

  29. You have made your position clear in the comments multiple times. I distinctly remember you calling yourself a leftist. You certainly sound like one.

    That’s fine. There are plenty of people who are hostile toward Christianity and Middle America. It is just kind of amusing that these very same people expect the targets of their spittle and animus to respond well to their attempts at “White Advocacy” (or lack thereof).

    About half of my “friends” are Christians; they’re not good friends, but friends nonetheless. I have ZERO problems with expressing my views to them about race and the archaic brainwashing known as Christianity. Your incessant rambling about everyone who doesn’t support the GOP approach being an outcast, unable to communicate with “mainstream America” is just that, incessant rambling.

    Try again.

  30. The economy is shit, tax dollars are being stolen and wasted, people are still dying in BS wars, got a crappy healthcare system, kids are getting dumber and have no future, government is spying on citizens left and right, White people are murdered, raped and robbed in astronomical numbers …

    If that’s leftist rhetoric, then I’m a leftist too.

  31. Hunter,

    For college and professional sports, I enjoy watching hockey which is quite big up here in the Upper Midwest. I also enjoy going pheasant hunting and ice fishing. I don’t think I’ve drifted apart from my people by giving my patronage to hockey instead of basketball and football – quite the opposite. I understand there’s no de facto all White sport in Alabama, so y’all can be forgiven for congegrating and going hoarse giving your battle cries for a gang of miscreants.

  32. HW: good observations. We should also remember that the only reason Whites are underrepresented in sports because of the influence of this toxic culture. It’s why just about all of the top White NBA basketball players are from Europe, especially the Balkans and Eastern Europe, where Jewish influence is somewhat less stifling. Whites from Eastern Europe don’t have it drummed into their head from birth that White men can’t jump.

  33. About half of my “friends” are Christians; they’re not good friends, but friends nonetheless. I have ZERO problems with expressing my views to them about race and the archaic brainwashing known as Christianity.

    Okay, I see.

    Aggressively attack Christianity. I am taking notes here. Maybe we can try this approach on a focus group?

    Your incessant rambling about everyone who doesn’t support the GOP approach being an outcast, unable to communicate with “mainstream America” is just that, incessant rambling.

    You really are a misfit and an outcast. I know your type well. I’ve encountered hundreds of WNs like you over the years: radically alienated, hostile toward White America, walled off in cyber ghettos, rambling about the need to punish ordinary people. You end up sounding exactly like the Jews whom you claim are such a bad influence.

  34. Murphy,

    I can assure you that football is the de facto sport of Alabama. Hunting, fishing, and golf are also popular here. The same is true of North Carolina and Kentucky with basketball. What is your opinion of Duke basketball?

  35. Celestial Time,

    You should go over there. If you could get past the racism and anti-Semitism, I suspect you would fit in quite well at Reddit. They are pro-amnesty, anti-White, anti-Christian, anti-war, pro-gay marriage, pro-drug legalization, pro-abortion, etc.

  36. Worth reading:

    New GOP class tougher on immigration?

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1110/44512.html

    The Republican class set to sweep into the House after Tuesday’s midterm elections could include several freshmen who have some real world experience cracking down on illegal immigration.

    Candidates like Lou Barletta, mayor of Hazleton, Pa., promise to pressure Republicans already in Congress to make sure immigration doesn’t get lost among all the talk about creating jobs and otherwise bolstering the nation’s still sagging economy. . . .

    In 1994, few of the new Republicans had tackled immigration, and the pressure for reform came from incumbents such Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and a bipartisan congressional commission.

    Should Republicans gain control of the House Tuesday, Smith and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) would likely be leading investigations of the Obama administration’s enforcement of existing laws as the likely new chairmen of the House Judiciary Committee and its Immigration Subcommittee.

  37. As far as football and comedy go, I think it’s good that blacks and Jews can do these things so well…keeps a few of them away from rape and speculation. And there are things that whites can do as whites: preview tomorrow.

  38. “Yup, today “Horned Rimmed” glasses are cool.”

    Again?

    Jewess singer Lisa Loeb popularized this style back in the early ’90s… then it went out of style again… now it is back in. Jeez one needs a chronological time chart to keep track of Jewish/ SWPL sub-culture.

    “There are plenty of good White players in college football. Tim Tebow has gone to the NFL, but you have Kellen Moore at Boise State, or Ryan Mallet at Arkansas, or Ricky Stanzi at Iowa. “

    That is right, there are good White players out there that deserve to be supported!! Negroes support their players, lets support ours! http://www.castefootball.us/

    “You have to participate in an integrated society in literally every other sphere of life: when you go to restaurants, go to see a movie, go to the grocery store, go to a gas station, when you walk in park, etc.

    I’m sure there are blacks who enjoy hunting and fishing. Tiger Woods plays golf. Does that mean Whites shouldn’t enjoy golf? There are non-Whites who read books and use computers. Should we give up books and the internet?

    This sort of silly thinking is what makes White Nationalists sound kooky.”

    Good point.

    We live in a oppressive multi-ethnic State similar to the Soviet Union.

    Should Alexander Solzhenitsyn have stopped reading and writing because ethnic Jews and Georgians also read and wrote books!?!?!?! Absolutely not! Go on living ones life as best as possible under inhospitable conditions, but also keep one foot in White Nationalism as well!!

  39. Hunter,

    I’m not a big fan of basketball, and I don’t have “a team”, but I do prefer when White(r) basketball teams win. So if I were to catch a Final Four game, I’d tend to support a Duke or a Kansas over a North Carolina or Michigan. And for social reasons, I can watch a sporting event contested by mostly black athletes with friends/coworkers/acquaintances and have a good time without betraying any hint of my racial beliefs, if I have to. But I’d like to see the day when, for example, NBA teams are folding because their White fan bases have shrunk to the point of no return. Considering how the Timberwolves have been drawing fans the last couple of years, that’s not inconceivable. I don’t want to harp on this; I’ll just chalk it up to no accounting for tastes. I’ll be following your live-blogging the election results tomorrow.

  40. Aggressively attack Christianity. I am taking notes here. Maybe we can try this approach on a focus group?

    Show me where I said aggressively attacking Christianity was a strategy.

    You really are a misfit and an outcast. I know your type well. I’ve encountered hundreds of WNs like you over the years: radically alienated, hostile toward White America, walled off in cyber ghettos, rambling about the need to punish ordinary people. You end up sounding exactly like the Jews whom you claim are such a bad influence.

    Again, you really know nothing about me, but you’ll pretend like you do. I guess I can pretend as well:

    Your reality: You came to Nashville and wrote about being all giddy over a couple of drunk English girls that happened to speak to you. Judging from your online personality, and those horrible pics of you and Imm, I’d say you’re probably not too successful with women who aren’t intoxicated or desperate. I think this is one of the main things that fuels your unstable attitudes an opinions.

    Where the fuck did you pull the “punish ordinary people” from?

    You should go over there. If you could get past the racism and anti-Semitism, I suspect you would fit in quite well at Reddit. They are pro-amnesty, anti-White, anti-Christian, anti-war, pro-gay marriage, pro-drug legalization, pro-abortion, etc.

    Nahhh, I think I’ll wait here for the emerging White Nationalist media organization to, uhh, emerge.

    NASCAR and country music are pretty White. I haven’t been able to get into either though.

    That understandable, since most of the stars are White.

    I really can’t get into either, but I sure as hell would put more stock into those entertainment venues than the nonstop black parade of the NBA and NFL.
