How to be not-racist: A comprehensive guide

lady justice statue scales
You have probably recently come up against some ideas calling themselves "anti-racism." Nearly everybody has. Not only will you have encountered them, it's likely that they also will have taken the liberty of essentially telling you whether or not you are racist — and, more likely, why you probably are. One thing you will have noticed about these approaches to "anti-racism" is that they explicitly tell us that there is no such thing as being "not racist" or even "less racist." This is patently absurd, but because these ideas have gathered so much widespread support and adoption in recent months and years, we are now offering this essay as a guide to explain to readers how they can, in fact, be not-racist, which we also argue they should want to be and should be expected to be.

As it stands, this guide is very long. This is because we want to be very thorough and provide the clearest understanding of the relevant issues as possible while giving actionable steps you can take to become not-racist, if needed, and to be confident that you are not racist. Because this guide is so long, it will be broken into two parts. First, immediately following this introduction, a short summary of the major points of the longer essay, and then, following that, a considerable elaboration on each of these points that goes into tremendous detail and offers practical advice.

Potential Bernie bro arrested in North Carolina now accused of planning to assassinate Joe Biden

A North Carolina man who was indicted last month on charges of child pornography also had plans to commit a mass shooting during the holidays and assassinate Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

A federal grand jury indicted 19-year-old Alexander Hillel Treisman, who also used the alias Alexander S. Theiss, in September on charges of knowingly possessing an image that contained child pornography, according to the Daily Beast. When authorities investigated Treisman's electronic devices, they discovered a bounty of disturbing information.

Found among Treisman's social media accounts and devices were images of various firearms he owned, plans to commit a mass shooting on "Christmas or Black Friday," references to child pornography and child-rape, and multiple internet searches about Biden's home.

Along with this information, authorities learned that he had purchased an AR-15 in New Hampshire and travelled to a Wendy's within 4 miles of Biden's home. He had also written a checklist ending with "execute" and under one of his social media accounts he had posted a meme with the caption "should I kill joe biden?"

Evidence gathered seems to suggest Treisman had made tentative plans to leave the country at one point with a doctored Polish passport discovered on his hard drive and emails to a Canadian law firm asking about obtaining Canadian citizenship.

Comment: Contrary to all the liberals salivating over the idea that Treisman was a right-wing radical, this must come as something of a wet blanket:

Thousands of people marched through London on Saturday in protest against coronavirus lockdown measures on October 24, 2020
Armed police officers have dispersed large crowds of anti-lockdown protesters at Trafalgar Square following a march through central London on Saturday, which saw thousands gather against coronavirus restrictions.

Demonstrators called for an end to the 'tyranny' of pandemic restrictions and voiced their opposition to vaccines and paedophilia, playing Michael Jackson's greatest hits via a PA system as they marched.

At least 10 people were led away in handcuffs by officers at Trafalgar Square, and Piers Corbyn, brother of former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, also attended the protest who once again joined demonstrators after appearing at court charged with flouting coronavirus rules.

Flu cases 'drop' 98% around the world

It was feared by many to be the perfect winter storm, a nightmare situation that would push our health service over the edge: the 'twin-demic' of flu, which kills about 10,000 Britons every year, and a second deadly wave of Covid-19.

Such was the concern that the Government rolled out the biggest flu vaccination programme in British history.

Thirty million people - 20 per cent more than normal, and now including all over-50s - are eligible for this year's jab.

Take up of the vaccine is already the highest it has ever been in the over-65s and young children, according to the latest reports.

There's just one curious problem: flu, it seems, has all but vanished.

FILE PHOTO: Nurses spoke of the emotional challenges for staff, patients and families
A dying woman was "unable to choose" which of her children should visit her due to the coronavirus pandemic, a charity said.

The heartbreaking story emerged as a new nursing survey found families have felt "bereft of involvement" in saying goodbye to their loved ones due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Staff involved in end of life care said families had received terrible news over the phone.

They described how the woman, who was suffering from a brain tumour, refused a family visit because she felt unable to choose which one of her four children should be her sole visitor in her final days.


Comment: Clearly the state now decides the totality of people's lives, even up to their death bed. Considering how harmless the coronavirus is, this makes the situation even more abhorrent.

Big Brother is watching: UK's traffic cameras secretly switched to monitor millions of pedestrians in government backed Covid project

A watching brief: An image from the Vivacity Labs website. The company says it is for marketing purposes only and does not reflect how the technology is actually used
Millions of people are being monitored for social distancing as part of a government-backed project secretly rolled out across Britain, the Mail can reveal.

In what campaigners call a sign the country is heading to a 'truly dark place', at least 363 cameras originally installed to monitor traffic flow have been switched - without public consultation - to snoop on pedestrians.

An investigation revealed that Vivacity Labs, the company behind the Artificial Intelligence camera technology, was awarded almost £50,000 by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy [BEIS] in June to 'improve the collection of social distancing data'.


Comment: This is how it starts, and it's always under guise of the public good.

Facebook has taken down/deleted organizing pages for Canada's top resistance groups

facebook
A GREAT PURGE IS UNDERWAY

This is a grave message to all my fellow Canadians, and our friends around the world. Last night, Facebook took down and deleted the organizing pages of several of Canada's most prominent resistance groups — The Line, Hugs Over Masks and also Mothers Against Distancing (MAD) and a related Christmas Parade page MAD had organized. Yes, apparently Christmas is canceled and anyone hoping to organize a parade for children is an enemy of the state.

Let me please provide some perspective on what just happened, even for those who don't agree with the messages and actions of those groups, which are part of and central to a network of such resistance groups across Canada.

We are a very long way down the road to fascism now, my friends. According to Naomi Wolf's system, we're at about stage nine out of 10 for full fascism. We're undergoing a digital book burning at the moment with the deletion of hundreds of channels on YouTube and hundreds and hundreds of pages and accounts and groups on Facebook and other social media. I received a flurry of emails and messages over the past week from people shocked and outraged that Facebook groups and YouTube deleted channels in which people invested years of their lives, with thousands of members, tens of thousands even. As I follow the opposition movement closely, I can attest that the pattern is the deletion of anything that goes against official narratives. You do know this has happened before, right? Last night was the equivalent of Kristallnacht in Canada — the famous night when Hitler's brownshirts smashed the windows of Jewish stores and engaged in public book burnings.

The world needs Jordan Peterson more than ever

Jordan Peterson
The world needs Jordan Peterson. That may sound like the statement of a fan or a friend — and I am both — but it is also a fact illustrated by the sheer numbers who come to him seeking guidance and help. There has been no other public intellectual in recent years who has attracted the kind of following Peterson has. His book, 12 Rules for Life, sold by the millions; his speaking events drew thousands of attendees, night after night, in cities across the world, in what became a gruelling schedule for Peterson. And this was not some top-down publicity-led phenomenon: it was a grass-roots movement in which readers and viewers gravitated towards the Canadian academic.

But then, a year ago, the world lost Peterson. He disappeared from view and it was eventually announced that the professor had been checked into a rehabilitation facility after developing an addiction to benzodiazepines, an anti-anxiety drug which is widely available in the US and other countries. Speculation has been rife ever since about whether he would ever be back and exactly what happened to him during this dark and painful period.

This week we got some answers, with a video in which, speaking directly to camera for the first time in a year, the professor gave some details of what had happened since his last public appearance. As Peterson related, he became hooked on the medication after upping his dosage, apparently in the wake of his wife's diagnosis and treatment for cancer last year.


He attempted to get off the medication himself, but found that no American facility would allow him to go full cold turkey on the drug, and so he ended up in a facility in Russia where he successfully freed himself from the drug but almost died in the process. Since then he has been in rehabilitation facilities in a number of other countries but — as he announced in his video — he is now finally back home in Toronto.

BBC's upcoming White Helmets 'documentary' gears up to be a character assassination of those who challenge Syria war narratives

The BBC is preparing an attack against journalists, former diplomats, academics and scientists who challenge the dominant pro-war narratives against Syria underpinned by the pseudo-humanitarian White Helmets.

The British public broadcaster has sent out requests for comments to those who have dared to expose the role the UK government and its intelligence agencies have played in the destabilization of Syria, which look more like neo-McCarthyist charge sheets.

The producer of an upcoming Radio 4 documentary series had been in email and telephone conversation with the author of this article, as well as Peter Ford, former UK ambassador to Syria, and members of the Working Group on Syria, Media and Propaganda (WGSMP) since June 2020. The result of those conversations, during which the evidence emanating from serious scientific research and on-the-ground testimony was presented to the producer, was a familiar list of accusations of "conspiracy theorism" and suggestions of "incentivized" Russian or Syrian bias.

Fellow independent journalist Eva Bartlett has spent long periods of time inside Syria, reporting from many of the most high-risk areas during the Syrian Arab Army allied campaigns to liberate swathes of Syrian territory from the US coalition-proxy occupation. She had this to say about the email she received a few days ago:

UK: 20-year-old student found dead at Coventry University, 8th death in less than a month

Coventry University
A 20-year-old Coventry University student has been found dead in a halls of residence, becoming the eighth UK student to have died in less than a month.

West Midlands Police said the student was discovered at the Bishop Gate halls in the city centre last Friday, and detectives were treating the death as non-suspicious.

Paramedics added that upon their arrival at 7pm it 'immediately became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene'.

The man, who has not yet been named, is at least the eighth student to have died since Britain's universities returned last month following the coronavirus lockdown.

It comes after Manchester University student Finn Kitson, 19, was found dead in his halls on October 8 after suffering with 'severe anxiety', according to his family.
