If anyone still doubts the existence of a Liberal Mindset, or that it is not just a harmless tic but so, well, wrong as to position its bearer 180 degrees off from reality (thus my slogan, “Conservatives are stupid but Liberals are bat-shit crazy”) need look no further than Michael Lewis’ Boomerang, which “. . . is essential a layman’s overview of the sovereign debt crisis.” Lewis has managed to position himself as the Bob Woodward of the economy, the go-to guy for NYT/NPR/60 Minutes friendly “exposes” that don’t disturb the digestion of Sunday brunch’s Aztec Eggs, unlike, say, Matt Taibbi’s work in Rolling Stone.
From a laudatory, yea, gushing review at ZeroHedge:
The chief angle that the book takes is the characterization — generalization, some would say — of countries that had some part in past or present debt crises. The countries in question are Iceland, Greece, Ireland, and Germany. The portraits Lewis paints are fascinating. Many would describe these characterizations as two-dimensional, but so be it . . . it made the pieces of the puzzle fit together much more nicely for me, and frankly, it makes the situation with the Euro a lot easier to comprehend.
Two dimensional, but aids to understanding? Hmmm. Let’s look at Iceland:
Bluntly stated, Lewis portrays:
+ Iceland as a miniscule country of 300,000 seriously inbred people that should have really stuck to fishing;
And the mask slips, is off entirely, and so early!
You might not think that being a promoter of miscegenation would be relevant, to say nothing of helpful, in understanding bond finance, but I guess you’d be wrong.
First, some unpacking. We are apparently to ‘understand’ Iceland by assimilating it to our no doubt ever present and useful stereotype of the ‘hillbilly’ or farmer.
Jew and Negro share a chuckle over those Icelanders
And by ‘inbred’ of course is meant ‘purebred.’ The Icelanders suffer from a lack of ‘color,’ shall we say, color both genetic and as a result, cultural.
Needless to point out, that no African country is ever upbraided for its lack of Nordics, or has its grotesque failures chalked up a lack of White input; quite the contrary, all African failures are precisely caused by those meddling Whites.
Pity poor Iceland! As Wall St.’s Mayor Bloomboig points out on every possible occasion, “Diversity is our strength,” so how could they possibly resist the Bankster’s wiles?
A nice little SWPL fairy tale. Meanwhile, however, in the “real world,” Bloomboig is playing a different tune; again, via ZeroHedge:
You stand up to the bankers, you win – Icelandic Anger Bringing Record Debt Relief in Best Crisis Recovery Story (Bloomberg)
Icelanders who pelted parliament with rocks in 2009 demanding their leaders and bankers answer for the country’s economic and financial collapse are reaping the benefits of their anger. […]
“You could safely say that Iceland holds the world record in household debt relief,” said Lars Christensen, chief emerging markets economist at Danske Bank A/S in Copenhagen. “Iceland followed the textbook example of what is required in a crisis. Any economist would agree with that.”[…]
The island’s households were helped by an agreement between the government and the banks, which are still partly controlled by the state, to forgive debt exceeding 110 percent of home values. On top of that, a Supreme Court ruling in June 2010 found loans indexed to foreign currencies were illegal, meaning households no longer need to cover krona losses. […]
“The lesson to be learned from Iceland’s crisis is that if other countries think it’s necessary to write down debts, they should look at how successful the 110 percent agreement was here,” said Thorolfur Matthiasson, an economics professor at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, in an interview. “It’s the broadest agreement that’s been undertaken.”
Pretty good for some inbred fishermen.
Of course, Constant Readers of this blog have been kept informed of the Real World activity of Iceland vs. the Banksters, as an encouraging example (in contrast to the pessimistic, doomer porn of most “White Nationalist” sites) of how White People in the Whitest Nation on Earth can show how to stand up to the banksters, just as the National Socialists did in the Revolution of 1933.
You’ll note that part about Iceland owning the banks. Just like North Dakota, Whitest State in America, only state to own its own bank, only state to be totally unaffected by the so-called debt crisis. I say, ‘so called’ because while the Banksters want you to believe it’s an accident, or a force of nature, We know that’s because they don’t want you to see, like a Three Card Monte dealer, that it’s Their Hand on the ball.
See, what they mean by ‘inbred’ is not just, no Negroes, but also, and more basically, No Jews. Thus, no Bankster Power. And here are the equally inspiring details of how Iceland has kept itself judenfrei through the years:
After dinner I approached the prime minister. He showed extraordinary understanding for my arguments and authorizes me to announce to the little Jew that he definitely has to leave — it is a principle in Iceland; Iceland has always been a pure Nordic country, free of Jews, and those who have entered in the last years must leave — but: Rottberger can get a respite until spring to complete his affairs. Fair enough!
An Aryan weak point! This trumped up diplomatic incident took place in the run-up to the War Against National Socialism; that’s what happens when you give the Jew a fair chance; it gives them time to cobble together an alliance of their tame Golems.
Before the Rottberger family was expelled to Denmark in May 1938, the largest Icelandic newspaper wrote in its lead article: “It must be welcomed that the authorities have shown firmness in dealing with these vagabonds. . . . Hopefully the authorities will ensure . . . that foreigners, who are still here without a residence permit will be sent out of the country immediately.”
No wonder the Supreme Court found debt denominated in ugly, foreign squiggles to be simply illegal. None of your Yiddish trash here! Raus, Jude!
On the subject of Culture Distortion, one could usefully compare Iceland to its Nordic neighbor, Sweden, where the Topsy-turvy worldview has been completely internalized, as least to judge from the loathsome The Girl . . . films — sort of the Jud Süss or Der Ewige Jude for SWPLs — espousing what Trevor Lynch, in a series of devastating reviews (devastating to those of us living in the “fact based community,” as one of Bush’s Christian Zionist aides once memorably sneered) has called a “note-perfect politically correct inversions of reality” where Sweden, the most feminized nation on Earth, is actually run by blonde Aryan Nazis obsessed with rape; so obsessed, that they’ve raped all the Swedish women and now need to import sex slaves. (The reality, as Lynch points out in detail, is that nearly every rape in Sweden is committed by Moslem or African immigrants, brought in specifically to get rid of that “inbred’ lack of diversity suffered by Iceland, and that the sex trade is run entirely by ex-Russian Jews. Facts are stupid things, indeed.)
As always, one is left with a further question, which has proven as yet imponderable: Does the Jew concoct this nonsense (as they’ve done since Christianity was foisted on the Romans) only to control the goyim, or are they crazy enough to actually believe in this make-believe world? Kevin MacDonald’s work on Jewish extreme ethnocentricity (ingroup vs. outgroup) suggests the latter. The conclusion is inescapable: the “smart” “rational” Jew, with his Marxist “economic science” and his Freudian “psychoanalysis” is nuttier than a ghetto rat, and should be handled, if at all, with extreme caution.
The Jew asks the “fair minded” Aryan for a fair chance . . . as long as it’s “good for the Jews.”
Meanwhile, on yet another looking-glass front, Joe Lieberman (CT-I[srael]) put together a whole bunch of his fellow Northeastern Senators (hmmm, wonder who dominates their populations and donor lists?) to pimp for his insane bill to outlaw the strategy of containment vis-à-vis Iran. To get a taste of the madness, consider the claim that Israel requires [as always] special consideration, because although it has hundreds of nukes, it faces an “existential threat” from Iran, which has . . . none. After all, only an “anti-Semite” would think it was far better off then we were when containing the Soviet Union. Sure, if you don’t remember “Duck and Cover.” For more reason, see this, which even the Washington Post could publish.
Yeah, it’s a cliché to say “it reads like a story from The Onion” but as we know, some stereotypes exist because they’re true; just not the ones They tell you.
Iranian intelligence experts also warned of the very real, and very frightening, possibility of the U.S. providing weapons and resources to a rogue third-party state such as Israel.
As always, when dealing with the mirror-worlds constructed by the Judaic Mind, you must always invert the proposed “reality.” And as always, the Jew gave you the message, just to prove that the goyim are too dumb to realize it:
Take the sham, fake reality called the “domestic economy“:
The American economy appears on the rugged surface to be stabilizing but only if you fail to look under the hood. […]
As usual with media reporting and projections from the financial sector it is wise for you to use your own judgment. If you look under the hood of the economy, things remain precariously weak for most Americans while financial sector profits soar. Not bad when you have the Fed funneling trillions of dollars in bailouts for massively bad bets that go unchecked.
Your own judgement, indeed. Notice how for the last 12 years its been all about the world of “stocks” and Cramerica (another Seinfeld clue, Kramer’s fake business Kramerica, if only the goyim weren’t so stupid), while gold is for “crazy” White “survivalists”?
Yeah, I’d call that survival all right.
For a concise, readable summary of iTulip concepts developed over the past 12 years and a vision of a challenging next decade and how to navigate it, read Eric Janszen’s 2010 book The Postcatastrophe Economy: Rebuilding America and Avoiding the Next Bubble.
As ZeroHedge again points out today:
No matter how reasonable or irrefutable the arguments against a particular conflict are, there will ALWAYS be a certain percentage of the populace which ignores all logic and barrels forward to cheerlead violent actions which ultimately only benefit a select and elite few.
