    The latest internet rumor is that the Vegas perp is a black woman and it was an anti-white hate crime. The sad thing is that with BLM inciting violence, I can’t dismiss it out of hand. A few years ago I would’ve laughed and called them paranoid, and now it’s plausible.

    I’m not quite to the point where I’m joining the tinfoil hat brigade who claim Obama is deliberately trying to foment a race war so he can indefinitely postpone the 2016 elections, but sometimes I wonder.

    Now that’s just silly. Everyone knows that Soros is trying to provoke whites all over the world because he hates white people, or wants to trigger an authoritarian response leading to a one world government, or knows how to make money on a world war. Or all three.

    And those are not the craziest conspiracy theories I’ve heard lately. I personally think it’s just the natural result of people with money using their influence because they can, and suppressing the natural ethnic loyalties that make for stable nations, because they simply don’t share them. They don’t value one peon over another, and aren’t smart enough to see how diversity plus proximity equals conflict.

    Oh, there’s plenty of deranged stuff out there if you want to get into it. That kind of crazy is contagious, though, and I try to avoid it as much as possible.

    Smart man. You are what you eat, and that goes for your brain too. Everything you think and do changes you.
