Cursed Soldiers

The young, handsome owner of an Omaha bar who was charged with manslaughter for whacking a rioter that attacked him took his own life. Jake Gardner, whose defense GoFundMe was shut down, was found dead by suicide. [Link] [Update: apparent suicide]

It’s all related, connected. Revolutionary communism, today, is bubbling up in the form of Antifa/BLM rioters that operate under the protection of radical local D.A.s, and more generally the antiwhite agitation, on up through the globalist networks and Lucifer’s servants themselves. History is very alive, its pulse beats deafeningly just next to your ear. It’s never arcane, boring, irrelevant, dead.

One example is the Cursed Soldiers, or Żołnierze wyklęci. They were members of the Armia Krajowa (Home Army) underground who continued resisting the Soviet occupation of Poland after 1944 when the AK had formally disbanded, and on into the 1950s. Their guerilla operations focused on killing NKVD agents who operated on Polish soil and attacks on detention facilities to free anti-communist prisoners. They were highly effective. Some called them “wolves.” They were also the most tragic of men and women, officially held in contempt as criminals until recently. Many of them were executed shortly after the war.

How history never dies. During WWII, Danuta Siedzikówna, pseudonim “Inka,” joined the Home Army at age 15 while under German occupation and trained as a medic. She was raised by her grandmother, as her father had been sent to Siberia by the Soviets and her mother was arrested by the Hitlerite occupant, tortured and murdered. Inka kept her allegiance to the Home Army after the Soviets entered Polish territory. In 1946 she was arrested on false charges under the new Stalinist regime and shot at age 17:

The last minutes of her life are known from the testimony of Father Marian Prusak, the priest-chaplain called to give “Inka” and “Zagończyk” the last rites. According to Father Prusak both prisoners were calm before their execution. Siedzikówna, after taking the Sacrament of Penance, asked the priest to inform her family of her death and gave him their address. Afterward the two were executed in the basement of the prison, tied to wooden stakes. They both refused blindfolds. When the prosecutor gave the order for the execution squad to fire, both prisoners simultaneously shouted (in Polish) “Long Live Poland!” She remained alive and the coup de grâce was delivered by Franciszek Sawicki (other members of the firing squad refused to do so) [Infogalactic]

History is alive: last year, before he unsuccessfully ran for president of Poland with the left wing, pro-rainbow, pro-EU party Civic Platform, Warsaw’s mayor Rafał Trzaskowski changed a city’s street named after Inka to something else. Our adversaries pay attention; nothing of the past is unimportant to them. Nor is it to us. There was a public outcry, by the way, and the street went back to being named after Inka.

Jake Gardner and the Cursed Soldiers, what could they possibly have in common? It’s this: (((communists))) lust for the destruction of the best of the targeted country. The memory of the fallen must be kept alive by the rest of us.

Zbigniew Herbert’s poem “Wilki,” or Wolves, is about the Cursed Soldiers. Musical interpretation with their photos in the video. My translation:

Because they lived by the law of the wolf
history is mum about them
all that’s left of them is traces of urine
and wolf’s pawprints in the snow

Faster than a treacherous bullet in the back
vengeful despair hit the heart
they drank moonshine, ate misery
to reconcile with their fates

“Brooding” will never become an agronomist
and “Dawn” – an accountant
“Marusia” – a mother, “Thunder” – a poet
a sprinkle of snow greys their young heads

not mourned by Elektra
not buried by Antigone
thus they rest for all eternity
forever dying in deep snow

they lost their home in the white forest
where snow drift blows
it’s not for us – scribblers – to mourn them
and stroke their matted fur

  1. Excellent translation. I like that style of poetry, which is unadorned and to the point, and also in a free-form-y and sparse meter.

    Some traditionalists in the DR look hard down their noses are all free verse; but imo they are missing it.

    nb4 I have no idea whether or not the original verses in Polish, are anything like free verse

  2. This “erasing of history” tactic is something to pay very close attention to, how it is used and by whom. A peoples’ history can be “erased” in order to replace it with a narrative that empowers them, or it can be erased in order to replace it with a narrative that subjugates them.

    It seems highly doubtful that Jake actually killed himself. Standing one’s ground usually has the effect of invigorating someone, not making them feel suicidal. It seems more likely he was “erased” in order to prevent him from becoming another viral hero of the ACTUAL resistance, a lá the Kyle Rittenhouse Effect.

  4. I marvel that any white person who hasn’t spent the last decade in a cave thinks he has a legal right to defend himself against blacks or Antifa. Self-defense is still morally justified of course, but our public prosecutors are not moral people.

    Christians need to wake up and realize that our government serves Satan, not God, and all its minions are agents of the devil, as it was in the time of Nero.

  5. @PA This story was very quickly forgotten of the “Holocaust Survivor” Helena Wolinska Brus who became a rabid communist and persecuted Polish war heroes in the 40’s and 50’s before eventually fleeing to Britain in 1971 to escape “anti-Semitism”.

    Poland demanded her extradition which Britain refused and she lived out the rest of her miserable life in quiet obscurity while the story barely got any international media attention and when it did always included the Polish anti-Semitism charge injected into it. The soldiers and heroes she signed death warrants for barely get any mention outside Poland.

  6. Walawala, back in the day when I’d talk with people who lived through WWII and its Stalinist aftermath, I do recall a mention of her. There was also one particularly sadistic bitch that tortured prisoners, whose name came up, I don’t recall if it was Brus or someone else.

    There is also Stefan Michnik [with three parentheses], who was a judge under the postwar Stalinist regime. His brother Adam is the founder and editor emeritus of Poland’s largest left wing newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza. Per Wikipedia:

    The list of Polish Army officers sentenced by [Stefan] Michnik, and rehabilitated without exception (also posthumously) included the following Home Army heroes:

    – Major Zefiryn Machalla – death sentence issued by Michnik, the jury took a joint decision not to allow defense in the proceedings; Machalla’s family was not informed about the execution;
    – Colonel Maksymilian Chojecki – death sentence, not executed;
    – Major Andrzej Rudolf Czaykowski – death sentence, Michnik participated personally in his execution;
    – Major Jerzy Lewandowski – death sentence, not executed;
    – Colonel Stanisław Wecki – lecturer at the Academy of the General Staff, sentenced to 13 years in prison, and died as a result of torture;
    – Major Zenon Tarasiewicz, case Sr 12/52, 12 years;
    – Colonel Romuald Sidorski – editor in Chief of the Quartermaster Review, sentenced to 12 years in prison, and died because of lack of medical assistance;
    – Lieutenant Colonel Aleksander Kowalski, and;
    – Major Karol Sęk – artilleryman from Radom, officer of the anticommunist National Armed Forces, and death sentence, executed in 1952.

    Stefan Michnik of the triple-parentheses felt the heat in 1968 when Poland’s communist government under Gomulka purged its Stalin-era holdovers and made criminal inquiries into their actions after the war. That’s when the likes of Brus and Stefan Michnik fled abroad because antisemitism. Michnik was denied a US visa, but was given asylum by Sweden, where he still lives.

    Also per Wikipedia:

    On 8 November 2018, the Military Court in Warsaw issued for the second time a European Arrest Warrant in connection with 30 offences that Michnik committed in the years 1952–53 against representatives of the democratic opposition and former members of the Underground State, including unlawful death sentences. Michnik has claimed that he wasn’t aware of the death sentences, who, according to him, was a decision made higher up in the judicial hierarchy.[14] A Swedish court in Gothenburg refused Poland’s appeal for the extradition of Stefan Michnik

  7. “Jake Gardner and the Cursed Soldiers, what could they possibly have in common? Gardner wasn’t a soldier. ”
    You stupid bastard, Jake Gardner was a Marine, served three tours in Iraq, suffering a TBI.

    [“Jake Gardner was a Marine, served three tours in Iraq, suffering a TBI” – I didn’t know that. Deleted the line about him not being a soldier. – PA]

  8. Dave, you wrote that Christians need to wake up and realize that our government serves Satan, not God, and all its minions are agents of the devil.

    And then what? What does realizing change?

    My impression is that Christians have realized that our government serves Satan, not God. Unfortunately, there are very few Christians. Sure, some people claim they are christians, listen to female priests and believe that there once was a community organizer called jesus – who wasn’t all bad for a white cis-heterosexual male living in those unenlighted times. These people are heretics, they do not believe in the holy Trinity.

    Arguably, anyone who was baptized is a Christian. If you take that formalistic stance, you can reasonably claim these people are Christians, but then if these people realize that our governments serves Satan they simply approve.

  10. I also find the suicide story dubious. Being a bar owner shows he was at least strongly independent. He was also clearly politically minded. He would have recognized it was purely a political prosecution, and it’s hard to believe his breaking point was reached before the trial.

  11. Under walawala’s link above, a prominent name is part of the story: Home Army’s overall second-in-command Emil August Fieldorf, pseudonym “Nil.” He was one of the great heroes whom (((Brus))) sentenced to death under a postwar stalinist trial. From that link:

    Between 1948 and 1956 more than sixty thousand Home Army veterans were sent to the Soviet gulag. False accusations were made against some of the senior prisoners who were given a speedy show trial before being executed. Helena Wolinska-Brus signed many of their indictment papers.

    The most prominent among them was Brigadier General Emil August Fieldorf.

    As his name suggests, he was partially of German ancestry, which is not unheard of in Poland and vice-versa in Germany.

    The Soviet NKVD arrested Fieldorf in 1948. He was interrogated, tortured and held in solitary confinement for twenty-three months in a dark, dirty cell where he was partially starved before being sentenced to death after what has been described as a kangaroo court trial.

    He was hanged on 24th February 1953 in Warsaw. In one final act of cruelty, his body was buried in an unknown location so that his grieving family had no grave to visit.

    There is more about Fieldorf’s biography in that article. In short, it further illustrates my original point that the communist lusts for the destruction of the best of the targeted country. Nil was one of the great figures of WWII, a man of high intellect and sterling character.

    If you recall my earlier post about the assassination of Franz Kutschera, it was Fieldorf who gave the order to carry out the action. A feature film was made about Nil in 2009. For anyone interested, the trailer is below (no subtitles). The scenes involving street action and two black cars are a depiction of the hit on Kutchera.

    Also early in the trailer, the female judge in the courtroom scene is Brus, pronouncing the death sentence against Nil.

    (Another key point: communist criminals tended to find shelter in the post-war West and lived long, peaceful lives).

  13. Walawala brings up a great point about those who escape justice. Israel provides a great model of exacting borderless, never-expiring justice.
    And since the media overlords continually glorify this practice with series like (((Hunters))), I’m assuming it’ll be a-ok for similar pursuits of Soros-funded DAs and the like after our current war ends.

  14. “And then what? What does realizing [that the government is Satanic] change?”

    It imposes a moral duty to deceive the government to protect one’s fellow Christians. It’s much harder for the government to break up your church and the families within it if you all assume from first contact that that is their goal.

  15. That’s great that they renamed the street. I recall when you first spoke about not long after it had been done. If memory serves, it was the main topic of a post of yours.

    I’ve always admired your take on history, especially that of Poland. Ever thought of compiling some anthology of pre, peri, and post Communist Poland in some bookish form? You’ve already got some great takes within your blog and always seek out such strong references to boot.

  16. The cursed soldiers are a foreboding example of what we face.

    An apt parallel from which we can illustrate both the harsh and often futile reality we face but also the fortitude to press onward. Something I appreciate very much here in the PA holler.

    Casualties of the war on white, cut off from their land and their fellow man, like the man here, are mounting in numbers with no reasonable or pleasant end in sight.

    The presumed death by his own hand is suspicious but a technicality among the trail of souls over the generations who have been plucked from among us by the evil hands of Progress. They want us dead.

    Even now there are men like us, separated only by a fateful moment or cascade of events set in motion before their births that land them alone, in conflict, in ruin.

    Perhaps we are different in our faith or hope or threads of brotherhood that keep us from falling down. But we should be wary of counting our stars so early.

    Stories like this should remind those of us who have crawled through the mud of the war on men of the countless men displaced, disenfranchised, and divorced from all they built and loved by the hammer and anvil of a scorned feral female and the State.

    Be it suicide or father forced into perpetual slavery and humiliating subservience to earn and re-earn his right to fatherhood according to his purchasing power and submission to the ex, death of a white man comes by many hands.

    So again we go, just one more thrust of the demon sword, as the next phase takes hold.

    The antidote, stark and stoic, is the discomfort of departing from those systems and institutions that would enslave you in comfort – and in pain, gluttony or in chains, to instead forge your steel in the small company of men who would be your brothers In arms.

    For that is all we have, and yet at the same time all we need, to build our communities from within and without.

    We must find men of character and the will to build just as much as the will to fight if we are to find our way; it is not a path to be taken alone.

  17. I started watching this girl’s channel after Carlos Danger recommended it.

    Briefly, she’s a cute, 24yo southern belle who posts videos of her doing guy stuff, mostly with her Dad. She’s relatively modest and seems to know her place, even while showing off how well she knows her way around a man’s world.

    I was only halfway drawn in until I watched her and her gal pal skillfully dispatching angry 6-7 foot alligators. Then I realized that watching an attractive woman unapologetically making herself useful was actually entertaining.

    Not that I’m a huge fan of killing alligators, or even that I think that it is the most difficult thing in the world to do, but credit where due when someone does the job efficiently and joyfully while looking hot AF.

    Now just imagine a world where prehistoric, cold-blooded predators are put down like it’s simply a job that needs to be done, and where cute girls in short shorts get to take part in the fun. Count me in.

  18. “Then I realized that watching an attractive woman unapologetically making herself useful was actually entertaining.”

    I think that is what makes videos like these useful. To teach guys what it looks like when a woman knows her place. It doesn’t mean she’s locked in the kitchen. It means she’s there being helpful to the family, in whatever situation.

    It also means she’s not out there running around on her own, being stupid. You find a way to keep a close watch on her. If that means dragging her along while you go hunt gators if you have to, so be it. Just keep her close and give her a job to do.

    If she needs to be the center of attention for a bit, don’t fight it. Just know where to step in and draw the line. I can imagine that happening here, behind the scenes.

  19. I do love her voice. She really is marriage material.

    PJ, good points all around. That’s the definition of a good helpmeet. A wife that’s always willing to aid her husband and not take over or make it about herself and knows that when her man draws the line, she does so willingly and not break his balls about it.

    He had both more and less style than Whitman, in spite of the latter exemplifying and/or embodying astronomic sensibilities in a less debatable presence-manifesting; both glidingly riding the mid-high swell of Occidental free verse with apparently wise fecundities. Whitman a seer-reassurer, presenting hyper-devotional mercilessnesses of a gymnast incisively too healthy for that interesting pursuit’s beams/bars or misc. pariphenalia.
    Herbert a graciously pure interpreter of poignant faun’s purrs. Had Whitman been a southerner, Billy The Kid would almost certainly be a pastor.

  22. Are those nuisance crocodiles, or what’s the deal?

    Somewhat relatedly; what’s the smart take on how available is ammo gonna be, in the near future; is it possible and or likely, that it’s out permanently now, sort of?

  23. I don’t follow the news at all anymore, except as is unavoidable, like for instance occasionally riding around in the car and having the public radio stations tuned in. First of all, these particular public stations are not NPR but they still use those same news sources, for their news section in between their music broadcast. Par for the course, but otoh sneaky and underhanded.

    But fuck if they weren’t playing the “presser” from some public sector employee black bitch about the police shooting black people in the head, for protesting. This was in Kentucky, and that’s literally what she was saying.

  25. There was a good exchange at ZMan’s about doing useful things during the day to day, and consequently w/ your life. It was between a boomer and millennial, so it had that thing going on. The Boomer begins —

    And idle people. [OP is titled Idle Hands]

    When I saw the title of today’s post, my first thought was a return to a recent line of thinking of my own: the younger people and a good portion of the middle-aged people I come across are ‘nothing people’. Especially since the younger ones had their minds captured by tiny screens, and their necks perpetually bent in service to the shiny objects.

    The nothingness I refer to is literally little to no activity, intellectual curiosity, and thus, skills. The middle-aged men, they have some cubicle job, and recreate by staring at sports (they do not participate in) on a screen. They “can’t” hang sheetrock, do plumbing, are anti-gun, send their cars to the dealership for service …. yes, I live in a blue state so there’s that.

    The young ones? They do nothing whatsoever. Even the few that take guitar lessons soon get bored and quit.

    Back to the idle hands. Making comparisons to the ‘muh fellow Amur-i-cans’ is a waste of time BUT seriously. As a teen, it was build and fly control line airplanes, finish longstanding model RR, cut lawns for cash, paint houses for cash. Play best of 5 tennis matches, pickup basketball, various levels of baseball from low Little League to Senior League, pre high school. Later, various car projects – yank the straight 6’s and put in the junkyard v8’s, fix them on the side of the road as needed.

    Paint houses, still making control line planes, military models (as in, ‘you do all the waterline USN and I will do the Japanese). Car projects as in ‘come over for beer and help me put in my new exhaust’ — then favor returned. Drink/meet women (usually same activity). Ride dirt bike, ride street bike. Bodywork and paint.

    Work various jobs. Didn’t get your car fixed, you hitch to work. Learn to have more than one vehicle from 18 on and keep it that way. Graduate college and still go to tech school after. And so it goes.

    Yes, as teens we read the latest Steven King books back then and swapped the paperbacks around. Same with Michener books, like Hawaii, were epic.

    So these things that are up for discussion as “males”, or even “men”, waddling around in their snout covers, flabby belly hanging over …. or lazy ass kids ….. the lights are not on and there is nobody home. Boring does not even begin to describe it.

    What’s new?
    “Nothing.”
    Reading anything interesting?
    “Uh, no.”
    It goes on. And we are surprised these empty vessels are easily filled with lies?
    Rant over!

    To which (presumably) Millennial responds —

    Ok Boomer.
    But seriously, a lot of what you mentioned is cultural practices that differ across both societies and generations.
    I’m an early ‘millennial’. Some of what you describe here is a result of massive changes to the things themselves.
    Cars: I own the Haynes Manuals for both of my vehicles. Much of anything related to problems with the engine and the electrical systems requires you get stuff hooked up to the computer. Even replacing the battery in some cars now requires tearing out a bunch of stuff to just get to the damn thing – I shouldn’t have to take the wiper blades off to replace the battery! Even the older model year cars are getting worse and worse to work on.
    Hobbies: Model RR/Plane have been replaced with things on the PC like Minecraft. Don’t try to sell me that the Model Railroad hobby is somehow superior to any other hobby.
    Drink/Meet Women: This still happens aplenty.
    Work: Some of what you say is true. But much of the problem is also because so many of the jobs that teenagers with few skills used to do are now being done by adult illegals. 16 year olds still can find employment in fast food (my local Chick-Fil-A staffs them) but even there it’s being taken over.
    Hitchhiking: Nobody picks up hitchhikers. “I might be murdered!”
    Reading: Most people don’t read, and have not read, since the advent of the Television set. Reading always has been a small subset of people.

    And back to Boomer, who shuts him down —

    Well, despite your lame Ok Boomer put down, I won the Up votes and you sound like you can’t start a mower. And you definitely are not meeting women IRL

    Maybe some reading would not hurt you. Owl won this round, sonny.

  26. I planted a fall crop of radishes and it’s been a success. I used seeds from the grocery store (as opposed to mail order seeds from Baker Creek). Radishes come in other colors than red, like white and tri color pink red and white. Also some of the varietals are bigger than u might expect. Further, a good part of the plant is the greens, and these should be harvested too. Technically the greens are probably rough greens as opposed to tender greens, but they are not actually too rough.

    I did two beds, each 2 feet by 8. Nearly half the seeds yielded a good radish and or green. It’s something of a skill, to max out your yields from those crops of radishes, in how you select and harvest them, whether or not they need to be thinned out. Radishes are the most popular “beginner’s” gardener plant, and perhaps they are one of the easiest. They are a spring or fall crop, and for anyone south of Zone 4, they (might) could still be planted.

    The 2-foot wide beds were planted with three rows each, and the seeds are direct seeded approximately one per inch. Also radishes can make your urine smell funny, which is something that not everyone knows; and apparently not everyone notices.

  27. You will get massive harvests on the greens, and unless you want to waste time and energy, they need to be processed straight away. It doesn’t take a genius, but for anyone lacking a plan, what u want is a two or three washtubs filled with water, a garden scissors, and a reasonably sharp paring knife. A work table and a towel. You can figure it out, but I am trying to make the point that it took me awhile to learn, which is to eliminate the unnecessary steps in processing the harvest. The radish greens go straight into the washtubs, and then dried on a towel, and then they will keep for a good solid week if they are 100 per cent dry.

    After reading some of Hardscrabble Farmer’s motivational posts, I sharpened the extra kitchen knives, so that they are good to go. (Your paring knives to clean the radishes work best when they are sharp.) To sharpen them I used a belt grinder tool that was recommended at the Wood Shop Store. It makes very quick work of them. I haven’t learned how to sharpen my knives in the old school way. Another point for the boomer’s it is, then..

  28. Elk, those generational flames are entertaining at times, often revealing as well. Mostly of how far the cultural drift has taken us from each other.

    On one hand the boomer boasts of the mettle of those born in the good old days. A time that no longer exists.

    On the other a millennial who both boasts of NAMALT and of the reasons why his generation are soy because not our fault those days no longer exist.

    Both are correct, according to their perspective. But the value in that perspective is not to be more correct such that we can indict those before or after us. The value is in the raw material from which we build what can be built today as it actually exists.

    This is what often gets overlooked in the generational hot potato: we are of the same lineage of people, inextricably entwined in something greater to which we owe both a great debt of gratitude and a great obligation of duty.

    The pendulum of time swinging the immediacy of each according to our eyes is not an arbiter of what is right, but an opportunity for us to seize our moment to pay those debts and honor those obligations.

    So Boomer and Millennial, what are you both doing now to create a future for our children? A way of life for our people?

    Its too late to hate the boomer for not planting trees to create shade he will never sit beneath.

    Its too late to hate the millennial for failing to bootstrap in a world that no longer has shade.

    But the next best time to plant that tree…And all that.

    The wise boomer should thirst to share that wisdom. We are mere stewards of knowledge, teachers after all.

    The wise millennial should hunger for that wisdom lost to Progress. We are builders after all, students of our trade.

    To close that drift we need community, build that first.

    Also, as an x’er, from my vantage both boomers and millennials mostly suck. But like that drunk uncle and faggy nephew, those are the cards we were dealt. We need all the potential we can muster.

  29. The wise boomer should thirst to share that wisdom. We are mere stewards of knowledge, teachers after all.

    This.

    After reading the boomer-mill tête-à-tête I got to thinking about whether the boomer had ever passed on some of his own interests to younger generations. I’m going to give the boomer the benefit on the doubt and say they did given the non-admonishing tone in their comment; or perhaps even tried yet youth in my day and later have that disaffected “life is boring” mindset given all the TV we watched, etc. (I’ll throw myself into that mix because when I look back on my life, there were times I was too attached to the telly and worse, when I got my Nintendo. Which I still have!)

    Boomer is right in that you should keep yourself busy, even with such a seemingly “nothing” task as reading. I’ve been reading voraciously as of late, even more so when getting my English degree; though that had more to do with the curriculum than anything else, as I was into the middle ages period of some of my classes. I’m in the Inspector Morse novels from Colin Dexter. Jolly good.

    Heck, even last year I built some simple speaker stands because I couldn’t find any I liked, either in design or price wise, and I had fun making them. First one came out so-so, but the other two came out better. It was simple but I had such a rush of accomplishment, it helped carry me through a dark time. I gotta get to building again. Lifting helps, but constructing something tangible has no equal.

    I have no doubt that there are many a younger generation interested in learning how to fix a wall, fix a leaky pipe, clear a drain or even get started in model building (RR is a great one) or even RC cars which is even funner. Sure some of these take money, but it doesn’t take much and as boomer stated, doing odd jobs at $5, 10 bucks adds up to cover the costs.

    That young lass, Hannah, is a good example of a nice blend between doing everyday tasks (outdoor & indoor) and then some (alligator hunting!) and using the new tech (YT, etc.) to detail her interests. It’s clear she took the instructions and lessons of her father, and I dare say grandad and uncles, if she’s got ’em.

  30. A lot of plausibly cattish schlong-swinging it seems, currently, at PA World and Thymes. Makes Rossini and anti-cautious sips of citrus Buchanans more appealing than ever.

    Untiring TX pride!

  31. “Are those nuisance crocodiles, or what’s the deal?”

    Alligators, crocodiles, whatever.

    If they being killed strictly for “sport” then that’s pretty lame.

  32. “If they being killed strictly for “sport” then that’s pretty lame.”

    If you watch the video to the end you’d know the answer to that.

    Also, they supposedly set the ropes the night before and caught 75 gators by the next day. That’s a lot. They were protected from hunting from a long time, and now they are everywhere in some places.

    Also, you have mused whether, when the time comes, people will be able to do what’s necessary to restore balance. Killing “for sport” is what you might call “rehearsal”.

    I’m guessing that girl who’s calmly putting down writhing gators with a pistol would have no problem doing that on “higher value” targets, while also joking around and lovingly caring for her kids. That ability to compartmentalize is a valuable skill. It’s the real deal. You can’t fake that. It’s decisive action, when it counts.

    He does? I’ve seen people do it there, I’m sure.

    Idk anyway. To me the posting of extensive song lyrics, with attempt to be relevant, always comes across as mildly distasteful; there is something of the objectionable try-hard about it, coupled with a vague breach of intimacy, and what I mean is that for a song to be meaningful is a deeply personal experience – you cannot force someone else to have an emotional engagement with the music that moves *you* simply by pasting a bunch of text into a thread.

    To try to do so comes across in much the same way as a creep who attempts to force an emotional connection with a woman. “What, you’re not feeling it the same way I am? How can you not be feeling it, baby??” Cause I’m just not, bro.

    Nota bene I am talking about people who copy-and-paste entire songs, this is different than offering a few select excerpted lyrics, which is fine, in the vein of any aphorism.

    I planted a fall crop of radishes

    I gotta say, I’m bummed about gardening, and actually slightly black-pilled (grey-pilled?) on it. It’s way harder than I thought, and forget about the massive effort it would take to be self-sufficient.

    They were protected from hunting from a long time, and now they are everywhere in some places.

    That’s interesting, I had no idea. It’s like those damn Canada geese.

  34. That’s a good take on posting song lyrics, SJ. They rarely convey what you’re trying to get at. I have an ax to grind re Bob Dylan, for some reason..

    Re radishes etc —

    To scale it up to anything resembling self sufficiently it would have to be a cooperative effort. There’s all sorts of people who have done the math on how much calories can come out of how much dirt. Agronomy spergs, with their tables of data.. Tom Wolfe’s father, incidentally, was an agronomy sperg.

    There are a lot of unused fields of dirt, as in big lawns of grass, that are part of the grounds for some various community buildings around here, like for interest the “retirement communities,” that could be planted with corn or potatoes (anything but soybeans, amirite?). Occasionally these massive lawns will have a garden plot, as an effort to get the old folks out of their 2nd and 3rd-floor caves; but it never does the trick as far as addressing what’s really illin (them). [illing: no sic]

    What really illing and killing us, is our dependance on the Superstructure of Technology that makes us slaves. This superstructure of technology allows is what has created the growth of our civilizations into forms that are not familiar, and in a word, not cozy.

    I wasted a lot of time driving around recently. They are still out of ammo at Fleet Farm. No one answered my question re the state of ammo production; is it going to get back to normal, or is the new normal that it’s out?

    There is a new Myth of the 20th Century up that features on its cover page, Robert Moses, who was the asshole who set the standard for building out our cities and suburban living environment up around the car, and the roads necessary for them. His motto, literally, was: Fuck communities (you worthless tree hugging protohippy saps); the Age of the Car, is upon us. I am not against cars and roads per se, but rather against their wants and needs being placed above ours!

    There was poem that was part of our 6th or 7th grade public school curriculum, that was on the theme of Who is the master the man behind the wheel, or the machine itself? and it’s kinda funny, that such topic was somehow in our “reader” in 7th grade. Wouldn’t it be funny and or maybe interesting, to have your complete set of those books, from back then?

  35. No one answered my question re the state of ammo production

    Well idk man, here north of the border I haven’t heard of any shortages, and I don’t know what that means because I assume (but could be completely wrong) that most of our ammo is manufactured in the US, so how could they be experiencing shortages but us not.

    Anyway I also don’t understand not just buying all your ammo in bulk on the internet.

  36. On the scale of a large successful backyard suburb garden; during peak harvest times, which is not just a few weeks in the late summer and fall, but mainly then..

    It’s impossible to use and PROCESS the food, all of it yourself, unless you are willing to devote yourself full-time+ to the chore. If you have a “helpmate” with which to your bidding, then that person, presumably yr wife, could help u out, provided u remove from her warm live hands, her smartphone device of death. But w/o such helpmate it sorta becomes, at least to me, something of an albatross. I am halfway burned out on it, tbh. But on the other hand it is a real JOY to have a good harvest. In some ways the most experience of joy (or what passes for it) that I know.

    To actually see the different colored radishes, is a sight. It’s a well known cliche that tomatoes from the store, taste literally like cardboard, and that they don’t compare with real ones. Newsflash: all the various fruits are veges are like that, to some extent. Lettuce greens for instance, taste like butter, when they are homegrown fresh. Sometimes it’s fun to think of how much better, food musta tasted, back in the old days. Perhaps their good tasting (food) woulda offset all the pain they were in, from having untreated dental problems?

    I am able to pass off most of my produce — the official, old style agronomy word (I think) was provender — to family and have them process a lot of it. One good way to process misc garden food is vege soup, and then freeze. That’s a more accessible “beginner” method than canning.

    Those two radish beds, each 8 feet by 2, were where the potatoes came out of earlier, and there was room for four or more like-sized beds, but that are instead lying unused, that coulda been planted with turnips or carrots or more radishes; but like I said, it becomes too much.

  37. It’s impossible to use and PROCESS the food, all of it yourself

    Yeah that was part of the frustration. All that effort, and you know what happened? Bunch of radishes sat in a bowl for a bit too long and by the time I remembered about them they had already gone bad.

  38. @hellephantress

    Helps immensely not to imitate yourself when flexing (whether verbally, counter-verbally or sumptuously situated between).

  39. Suburban_elk, upvotes and downvotes don’t determine who is correct. That boomer lost the debate the moment he said he won it because of more internet points.

  40. This is a sad story. He came across as such a nice person in the inauguration interview. I wish he had fought back, but I do understand how hopeless things seemed for him.

  41. His death was not in vain, however. It has shown people how serious the consequences of having a government and ruling class hostile to our people can be. It will happen again.

  42. Bunch of radishes sat in a bowl for a bit too long

    They will keep in the fridge for a couple weeks, submersed in ice water.

  43. It isn’t about you vs. antifa, or you vs. radical DAs, it’s you vs. the US. Government, and it has been for decades. The culture of this country is racist against white people and has been for half a century, and the culture shapes the government. It’s all about subjugating the white population. The American government has a program to subjugate its white population just as the Chinese government has a program to subjugate its Uighur population. Different circumstances, different programs, but similar goals.
