The Law of Regression (popularly known as “Regression Toward Mediocrity”) is a concept created and popularized by that illustrious and precocious 19th Century geneticist, Sir Francis Galton. This law is the statement that parents who represent extreme outliers in a particular phenotype will have children that will regress to the mean averages combinatory of their respective populations. This holds truest in traits multivariate and compounding in genetic causation such as height, hair color, character, and intelligence.
This week Obama announced that he will pursue an executive order that will allow certain illegal immigrants in America to obtain “deportation relief.” This means that they will be able to apply for paper work which will prevent them from being deported for the next three years. In order to qualify for deportation relief an illegal immigrant must pass a background check showing that they have been in the US since 2010, are not criminals, and are either parents of a US citizen or were under 16 when they immigrated here. It is estimated that there are 4 to 5 million illegal immigrants currently in the US who meet these requirements.
Obama’s deferral of deportation of up to 5 million illegals won’t change America overnight. However, if allowed to proceed without any real opposition, it will accelerate the long and slow decline of the USA into a Central American Banana Republic.
The facts of the policy are as follows: Obama issued an executive order that extends “deportation protection” for up to 5 million illegal aliens currently residing inside the United States. Those that qualify are immigrants that have been inside the US for more than 5 years, have no criminal record (other than breaking immigration law, of course) and have children that are citizens, meaning those that plopped out a baby after crossing the border. Also covered are 300,000 or so immigrants that were children when their parents brought them over the border illegally. This group of people will be allowed to stay indefinitely, will have a chance to get work visas, a chance to get permanent legal residency and in some cases even a chance to get social security numbers.
There are two fundamental issues that right wingers of various stripes should take with this executive action: one is in regard to the demographic situation in the USA, the other is in regard to legal precedent.
This summer, the story on immigration began to focus on the surging numbers of unaccompanied minors at the borders.
From liberals, we heard impassioned pleas to welcome these increasingly teeming masses of children out of our bottomless compassion, and shaming language directed at the greed and selfishness of anyone who objected. From conservatives, we heard cautions about their possible criminality, dependency, and ill-health. From libertarians, we heard schizophrenia, on the one hand, acknowledgement of the growing burden of sheltering them while authorities decide whether to deport them, or increasingly, to welcome them as refugees; on the other hand, railing about the injustice of turning any away when “no doubt” (according to them) there are plenty of Americans willing to take them in as an act of private charity.
One thing that’s been played up to no end are the allegedly dire circumstances these children are fleeing. But while some of these kids certainly face dire circumstances, not all of them do; probably not even most of them. Most likely what they’re “fleeing” is a difficult, impoverished, but ordinary (by their standards) life.
On this week’s Daily Shoah we discuss the child sex abuse scandal in Rotherham, England, the desperate scrambling by progressives to preserve their narrative as well as potential consequences for European politics than none of us really know anything about. Finally Morrakiu rounds it out with a look at the real culprits behind it all in this week’s “Merchant Minute.”
A loyal TRSer must always try to find the hidden euphoria among the constant rustling and triggering in our fallen world if he is to maintain his sanity. A recent rustling that has gotten a lot of attention in our sphere is the Boston Globe “Mexizona” cartoon. White native born American whites ever-so-hilariously find themselves walled-out of the US and, I suppose, “illegal” immigrants in Mexico? It’s hard to describe. Ham-fisted failures at actual comedy usually are.
I would like to revisit the commentary on how the supposed “Mexicans” are depicted in the drawing. It has already been pointed out, they appear as white people with sun-tans. Not ditch diggers, leaf blowers or squat taco-shell bending mothers of 12, but as GQ-reading, Louis Vitton knock-off buying, stylish, white yuppies with extra melanin.
The first episode of our new podcast experiment. With Michael Enoch, Ghoul, Bulbasaur and Seventh Son (aka Bjorn This Way). Special thanks to Seventh Son for audio production. We discuss race, immigration, politics, religion and social life from our unique TRS perspective. Prepare your anuses and ear canals for the best social commentary on the internet.
Today’s piece of insufferably snotty SWPL status signaling comes to us courtesy of Ward Sutton, editorial cartoonist for the The Boston Globe. I would repost the entire thing here, but I genuinely don’t want to get into copyright issues with a major newspaper, so just go there to read it. We’ll be here when you get back. (Trigger warning: Appallingly arrogant liberal snarkiness.)
This cartoon is not funny. Well, save for the gag about American Southwest themed art being crap. That gave me a bit of a chuckle. But other than that, this is about the level of humor and thoughtfulness we can expect from this particular flavor of liberal cartoon propaganda. You know the type. The sort of dreck that is meant to appeal to the average 6/10 brahmin female with thick-rimmed hipster glasses, and whatever beta cuck liberal male she happens to be friendzoning at the moment. See also, Tom Tomorrow, Jen Sorenson etc. The most annoying thing about this sort of slop is the pretense of edginess it puts on while falling square in the middle of pedestrian, mainstream, white elite opinion and narrative.
Protip: If it’s published in a newspaper owned by a billionaire with readership in the millions, it’s not edgy.
Ideological swaps have a common tendency: first, you experience a marked increase in positive feelings and energy towards your new ideology. Second, you disassociate yourself with your previous ideology and sling mud at it. You can’t take it seriously, so even if you have decent critiques of it, the best you can come up with–if you try at all–is a series of strawmen.
This is not that.
It seems that some jimjams have been flimflammed and a media kerfuffle has arisen over a rather banal and saccharine
Dildo Super Bowl advertisement put out by the Coca-Cola corporation. The ad depicts various individuals and groups of endearing, non-threatening, SWPL-approved minorities signing “America the Beautiful” in various global (non-English) languages.
At first glance one that has trained his mind in the art of spotting the progressive narrative cannot help but feel a minor trembling in the ol’ Johnathans. On second glance one wonders why one is glancing at this cloying, hackneyed rubbish a second time. Whether the average
Dildo Super Bowl viewer was able to pick up on the not-so subtle cultural Marxist messaging here, or whether his mind was already too numb and broken from the unrelenting dildo bludgeoning it had been receiving all evening, I can’t say. I can’t read minds, nor can I relate to the mindset of a Dildo Super Bowl viewer.
