Joyce’s Diary

Welcome to Joyce’s Diary, a new weekly feature at Radix and, and my personal take on recent events that punctuate the accelerating Kali Yuga.

Being Too Nice to ‘Nazis’

It’s always deeply satisfying to watch a Leftist organization dissolve in its own acidic ideology, and the social media reaction to the New York Times piece, ‘A Voice of Hate in America’s Heartland,’ has provided me with enough schadenfreude to last for quite some time. I don’t know what journalist Richard Fausset was trying to accomplish with the piece, but it looked like he was trying to compose yet another portrait of ‘White rage’ in the age of Trump while showcasing his own irritating, florid writing style. That such portraits have become very common suggests they are meeting a market demand.

Love us or hate us, both the general public and our enemies can’t stop themselves from wanting to read about us, about our lives, and about our ideas. The reaction to Fausset’s article from Jewish circles and the Left has been bitter, aggressive, and widespread, but I believe that underlying the surface panic about his allegedly sympathetic presentation of Tony Hovater is a deeper panic about the popularity of this journalistic genre. ‘Hate in the Heartland,’ like Elle Reeve’s work at Vice, sells. Eventually, even the most gruesome of boogeymen elicit positive responses when they appear on screen. And the problem with letting us appear, even in a ‘hit piece,’ is that a tiny bit of our truth will always emerge.

Britain’s Barren Wombs

The BBC reports that “women in England and Wales are having 1.9 children…the lowest level on record.” Approximately 20% of women are, and will remain, childless. Of course, the article doesn’t break down any of these statistics by race or ethnicity, although it rather cleverly uses an image of a mixed-race woman and child to head the piece. God forbid that anyone should think this is a White issue.

However, given last year’s announcement that births in England to foreign mothers had reached a record high, we can assume that the 1.9 figure has been significantly boosted by immigrants, mostly of the Islamic persuasion. The overall picture that emerges is thus very disturbing indeed – the wholesale collapse of native fertility, and a bleak indicator that we may well witness the demographic eclipse of the English in their own homeland within our lifetimes.

Muslims Killing Muslims

More than 300 Muslims were killed in an Egyptian mosque after a bomb was detonated inside and those escaping were shot down with automatic weapons. The targeted Muslims were of the Sufi denomination, a sect perceived as being mystical to the point of heresy by hardliners like ISIS. The major problem the West faces with Muslim sectarian conflicts is that cosmopolitan journalists work overtime to present the side coming off worse, in this case the Sufi minority, as a victim class and therefore deserving of being admitted to the West as ‘refugees.’ Such positions are short-sighted and disingenuous to say the least. The inevitable result is the further importation of more problematic groups and, in their wake, the spreading of Muslim sectarianism to the West. Britain’s Political Studies Association has asked: “Is Muslim sectarian violence a new reality for Britain?” A series of murders of Muslims by Muslims across the UK suggests that it is. And it’s going to get worse.

A Black, Black Friday

The soulless consumer extravaganza known as ‘Black Friday’ has passed by for another year. Social media was provided with another clutch of hilarious videos of waves of mainly Black people pouring over one another in order to lay their hands on a motley of Chinese electronics and useless baubles. Humor aside, the deeper sociological implications of such scenes shouldn’t go unnoticed. Sales propaganda promoting both Black Friday and Christmas as periods of extreme spending essentially target those with low impulse control and poor long-term financial planning skills.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, African-Americans tend to, per capita, outspend other ethnicities between November and January, with their consumerism mainly funded by credit. Modern consumer culture, like other aspects of the contemporary social environment, is a significant driver of Black debt and poverty. It’s no accident that the further we move away from the social mores of the 1950s and earlier, the more fractured and poorer the Black family has become. We can laugh at images of Blacks fighting over a new TV, but in the end we will be left picking up the pieces.

Uma Calls Out Weinstein

It’s an axiom of apathetic modernity that even the most energetic social outrage can’t be sustained for long. The hunger for novelty has apparently extended even to cases of mass sexual abuse. A couple of weeks after the initial Harvey Weinstein story broke, one could already sense a creeping indifference to new revelations.

By the time Uma Thurman issued a Thanksgiving salvo at the disgraced Hebrew film mogul, it was clear that even her star power couldn’t resuscitate the issue as a headline story. Her social media statement was given polite coverage by the media big-hitters, but the worst for Weinstein appears to be over. One suspects that he will continue to keep a low-profile for the foreseeable future before attempting to reclaim some of his lost influence. Like that of his forebears, Weinstein’s expulsion may merely be the precursor to a vengeful return.

Trump Blocked on ‘Transsexual Soldiers’ Ban

A federal judge who just happened to be Jewish has blocked the Trump administration’s proposed ban on trans troops. Judge Marvin Garbis has specifically struck down a Trump measure preventing transsexual troops from getting ‘gender reassignment’ surgery at the government’s expense. The decision was hailed by the ACLU staff attorney responsible for bringing the case against Trump’s measures, Joshua Block, who also just happened to be Jewish.

Block, who is the ACLU’s staff attorney for superlatively diverse Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender & HIV Projects, remarked “Today is a victory for transgender service members across the country…We’re pleased that the courts have stepped in to ensure that trans service members are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.” I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something doesn’t feel right about this particular case. It’s almost like it isn’t our court system any more. Or something.

Trump Sued on Immigration Changes

A lawyer who just happened to be Jewish is leading a Virginia law suit against Trump’s phasing out of the DACA program. Legal Air Justice Center director Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg filed the lawsuit in federal court in Alexandria on behalf of a Korean and a Hispanic facing deportation.

Although such individuals are commonly portrayed in the media as being extremely valuable to our economy, the primary defense of one of the plaintiffs, 26-year-old Nurimaro Park of Fairfax, is that he didn’t renew his status on time because he couldn’t afford the $500 renewal fee. We may assume that there is an abundance of such people in America – those who are simply so successful in their highly productive and essential jobs that they can’t afford a $500 fee that is absolutely vital to their continued presence in the country. Needless to say, it appears that Mr. Sandoval-Moshenberg is working for these men pro bono, which makes me wonder what exactly is motivating him…

Catch you next week.
