The costs of diversity are hard to measure. But sometimes we get nice little reminders.
More cops, more bomb-sniffing dogs and more police snipers than ever are being deployed by the NYPD for New Year’s Eve to protect the 2 million spectators expected to cram Times Square to usher in 2018, department leaders said Thursday.NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said counterterrorism planners are heeding lessons from recent terrorist attacks, including three in Manhattan since September 2016.“People will be safe,” O’Neill said, “and they should feel safe, too.”
Beginning at 11 a.m. Sunday, crosstown traffic is to be shut down from 37th to 59th streets and Sixth to Eighth avenues, and the area will be sealed off with concrete barriers, blocker cars and sand-filled trucks, said Terence Monahan, the NYPD’s patrol chief.
He said the department will also restrict trucks on those avenues from 34th to 59th streets.
To stop a suicide bomber from detonating an explosive like the one set off Dec. 11 under the Port Authority bus terminal, officers will search celebrants twice — when a person approaches the Times Square area, and again at each designated gathering place — with specially trained dogs and metal detectors, and by officers examining each reveler’s bags.
To avert a Las Vegas-style sniper shooting from above, NYPD officers are being assigned to every hotel in the Times Square area. O’Neill hinted that guest rosters are being scrutinized, but he declined to elaborate.
The NYPD is focusing on about 20 hotels and office buildings, especially about a dozen with a direct line of sight to the crowd below, said Steve Davis, the NYPD’s chief spokesman.
To block a vehicle-ramming attack like the rented pickup on Halloween that killed pedestrians on a bike path near the West Side Highway, sand-filled garbage trucks are to be parked at intersections near Times Square, with all 125 area garages ordered closed and sealed to protect from an exploding vehicle being left inside.
James Waters, the NYPD’s counterterrorism chief, said analysts are also monitoring online propaganda put out by groups like the Islamic State, and issuing bulletins to officers on how to identify and kill, as a last resort, would-be suicide bombers and take cover to protect themselves and the public.
New York, of course, has been the target of pretty much every other terror attack since even before 9/11.
Recently though, we have had the emergence of more low-level terror – nothing big and dramatic like the Twin Tower attacks. Just run of the mill vehicle rammings, stabbings, and foiled nail bombs.
But interesting that they would mention killing as a “last resort”. Nice to know that the New York police will treat potential Islamic terrorists with kid gloves, lest they should be accused of Islamophobia.
Strange that the police is talking about restraint, because that’s not what happened when SWAT killed an innocent man the other day.
“A male came to the front door, as he came to the front door, one of our officers discharged his weapon,” Livingston said.
Livingston didn’t say if the man was carrying a weapon when he came to the door, or what caused the officer to shoot the man. Police don’t think he fired at officers, but the incident is still under investigation, he said.
The injured man was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The officer, a 7-year veteran of the police department, will be placed on paid administrative leave, per department policy.
When officers got inside the house, they didn’t find anyone with gunshot wounds, Livingston said.
“We have a lot of information to go through,” Livingston said. Investigators are still at the scene and several officers will be interviewed.
Did you hear about this story? Basically, a Call of Duty gamer called SWAT on another gamer because he was angry about losing to him online. Here’s the summary:
Everyone involved in this stupid spat deserves to be ridiculed.
But what the SWAT team did should give every right-winger pause. The militarized police murdered an innocent man who literally just opened the door when they knocked. Is this the new normal that we law-abiding Amerikaners have to accept?
Worrying to say the least.
Oh wait, actually this meme refers to another incident. Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten what happened with that drunk guy and the police officer in the hotel a couple of weeks ago?
How is this related to Diversity? Well, Diversity and the militarization of the police seem to go hand in hand, don’t they?
Although this is hard to accept – especially for older people – the fact remains that all of these institutions created by White men in better times are changing. Law enforcement is the easiest place to look to see what living in a multi-ethnic country will feel like.
And it’s not just in the US.
In Germany, we have the Merkel blocks that everyone has probably heard of by now.

And all of it is being done to keep us safe.
Of course, the astute observer might start wondering about our governments’ true intentions. After all, if safety was the goal, what was the point of importing the diversity in the first place?
Ah well, I guess we can deduce then that safety comes second or perhaps a distant third on the government priority list and more as a sort of a fall out control policy because clearly, Vibrant Diversity is the prime imperative.
And when crime rises, then more drastic measures have to be taken to keep us safe.
Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist here, but something doesn’t add up. It’s almost like Diversity justifies greater control and the erosion of civil rights. Trust is also eroded, and the only thing that ends up keeping the whole sham together is brute force.
And then the ethnic lobbying begins.
Blacks begin rioting and demanding that the police treat Black criminals with kid gloves. Politicians bend to the lobbying and give them “space to destroy”.
Meanwhile, police brutality aimed against Whites doesn’t raise a peep.
2017 was a preview of what is to come. Certain ethnic groups become unpoliceable, and others get the boot on their necks even harder than before.
As a movement, we must start addressing the police state problem in 2018. Our treatment at Charlottesville should have served as a wake-up call. Knee-jerking against BLM’s Black Lives Matter with Blue Lives Matter is not a good idea.
In the multi-ethnic free-for-all cockfight that is the Post-First World, we too have to start playing the minority game.
(From what I understand, many National Action guys in the UK have already been arrested)
We too have to start lobbying and demanding answers from institutions – not just the police mind you, but all the institutions that are supposed to be impartial arbiters of the law. We can’t just assume that the law will continue to be impartially applied to everyone like we used to in 80% White America because there are worrying signs of what our own state has planned for us all over the West.
Germany and the UK certainly jump out as examples of the tight relationship between accelerated multi-culturalism and the police state.
But am I jumping the gun a bit here? Maybe, but maybe what’s really happening is that we’re playing catch-up here and this type of thinking from White people is long overdue.
It shouldn’t have been allowed to get to this point, but here we are. Time to start looking at the situation as it is, and not how we wish it to be. And there’s no use crying over spilled milk. We just have to deal with the hand that we’ve been dealt, and the situation as it stands going into 2018 and beyond.
Identity Evropa’s shrine action to Kate Steinle and Spencer’s protest in favor of Kate’s Wall was right on the money. We personalized the problem, and we spoke out against the killing of a White girl, and the failure of justice that ensued. A non-White and Leftist jury literally let a murderer walk.
So the question arises: can we trust the justice system anymore?
The answer seems clear to me.
Kate and the others like her that are sure to come must become a rallying point for the Alt-Right.
Instead of just worrying about a minority White future, we should start preparing for it. I mean what are we even at now? 62%? 56%? 52%? Does anyone know when you can only estimate the number of illegals, hispanics are considered “White” in official crime stats and the Wall has not yet been built? What about the high fertility rates of the non-Whites already here? The problem may be baked in the cake already.
In other words, the time has come for when every killing of a White man or woman should be met with outcry and with demands for justice. That goes for Black on White killings or Blue on White killings equally. It’s time to speak out as an ethnic soon-to-be minority block and push back.
Otherwise, things will continue to get more one-sided, because everyone will know who is untouchable and who can be bullied. It’s time to start practicing our own minority game because the fact of the matter is that we’re barreling towards White minority status faster than perhaps even the Alt-Right can imagine.
We may as well start practicing for when that day comes.
