Countless debates with “scientific” minded liberals and an examination of their beliefs have made it evident that this system of thought contains a soft, nuggety core of pure theology masquerading as “science” for outside observers

Palais Rohan (Strasbourg, France) :

Built next to the cathedral, the palace represents not only the high point of local baroque architecture, but also houses three of the most important museums in the city since the end of the 19th century: the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Decorative Arts, and the Museum of Fine Arts.
The palace was commissioned by Cardinal Armand Gaston Maximilien de Rohan, Bishop of Strasbourg, from the architect Joseph Massol and erected between 1731 and 1742 according to plans by Robert de Cotte. In 1744, Louis XV stayed in the palace, and Marie Antoinette stayed there in 1770. In 1805, 1806 and 1809, Napoléon Bonaparte stayed there and had some of the rooms changed to suit his tastes and those of his wife, Joséphine. In 1810, Napoleon’s second wife Marie Louise, Duchess of Parma spent her first night on French soil in the palace. Another royal guest was king Charles X of France in 1828. From 1872 until 1898, the palace served as the main building of the imperial German Universität Straßburg, up until the founding and opening of the new “Kaiser-Wilhelms-Universität”. As of 1898 and during the course of the re-establishment of the art collection, the palace became the seat of the imperial museums of Strasbourg. On August 11, 1944, the building was damaged by English and American bombs. The restoration of the premises was completed in the 1990s.

The Muslims in our midst do not share our impious attitude to absent generations. They come to us from the demographic infernos of North Africa and Pakistan, like Aeneas from the burning ruins of Troy, each with an old man on his shoulders, a child at his feet, and his hands full of strange gods. They are manifestly in the business of social, as well as biological, reproduction. They show us what we really stand to lose, if we hold nothing sacred: namely, the future.

Isn’t this just a sublimated form of bragging? “I’m so, so fabulous you guys, you know how fabulous I am, I’m so fabulous I can even feel horrible about being too fabulous, you know?”

The Beach Boys | Pet Sounds
One of the most innovative LP’s of it’s time.

When I was in college, I had a friend whose favorite band was the Beach Boys. I honestly find the music kind of disturbing to listen to, it reminds me of late-period Louis Wain paintings.

This blog is about the many innovations, inventions, creations and discoveries made by white people throughout history.

This isn't about hate, violence or racial supremacy. I love my people and I hope you love yours.

That said, if you say moronic things that can be proved wrong in 3 minutes on bing, don't expect to be handled with kid gloves.

NOTE: I'm not updating this blog very much at the moment. I have enough posts queued up to keep it running for the next couple of years, but I don't log in or check it regularly. Feel free to browse the archives though if you want answers to some questions.
