John Derbyshire visits Bruce Lee's tomb

From Taki's Mag.

On a Saturday in Seattle, there was quite a line of mourners 39 years after Lee's death. (By way of contrast, 22 years after Winston Churchill's death, my bride and I visited Churchill's grave in the middle of a sunny weekday in summer. There was nobody else around, until after about ten minutes, four German tourists showed up to pay their respects.)

Video of Bruce and John here.

Completely OT:
1) Turns out toppled banker Bob Diamond busts stereotypes by being Scots/Irish, i.e. not Scotch-Irish and definitely not '"Scotch-Irish"', as some of your faithful like to put it.
2) Michael Johnson is apparently bulletproof enough to lead a British TV documentary that poses the question: did the slave trade breed speed into black people in the Americas?

You may well be right, but in a world where Sasha Baron Cohen's father is described as "Welsh".....

Is Diamond an Irish or Scottish name?

Wouldn't the fastest have been the ones that outran their would-be captors?

"Wouldn't the fastest have been the ones that outran their would-be captors?" - They were captured by each other though, so the fastest were the captors.

As was well established in the earlier comment thread on Sutherland , the policy in isteve comment threads is that anyone who does anything bad is Jewish, regardless of any evidence as to actual ethnic or religious background. Remember the core logic of anti-semitism: all bad things that happen are because of Jews. It therefore follows that there is a Jew involved in anything bad. You just have to find him.

So tell us Steve, why should anyone visit Churchill's grave?

The Whites kidnapped them in the jungles.

So why is it that blacks from the U.S. and West Indies dominate West Africans?

MQ, that's really not it. The problem is Jewish agents exerting special magic control over what the gov't does. Like those Fanjul brothers down in Florida with their payos and yarmulkes. Then there's Beit ADM and L'Chargill

Anon at 4;53. The article explains why.

Very strange thread so far.

Anyhow ON topic:

Derb's the fellow in the striped shirt right?

And doesn't this cause problems for HBD? The East Asian is not the math whiz (that would be the White guy). Instead he's the guy who outfights the Whites and the Black guy.

Oh, you were up here last weekend? Hope you enjoyed the stay. If the weather's good, Seattle's a great place to visit.

Bruce Lee's grave usually isn't that busy, but on a nice day on a weekend I can see how there'd be a lot of visitors. That's the neighborhood I grew up in (my house was about a five minute, slow walk from the grave), so I used to fly kites in the cemetery sometimes as a kid. For some reason, Bruce Lee's grave was regularly defaced in those days (somebody kept scratching out his picture on the old grave). My dad said it was due to a Chinese gang (Tong) rivalry, but I really don't know. It stopped after his kid died and he got a new gravestone.

Anyway, hope you all enjoyed the city and come again. If I'd known about it I would have been sure to fix you up with some dungeness crab and local wine.

Next time :-)

Really. It's like a thread on 4chan. People getting all worked up about something that seems to make no sense, using impenetrable language. Must be some sort of inside joke. At any rate, it seems impenetrable to the uninitiated.

@anonymous - "Is Diamond an Irish or Scottish name?"

it's an old irish name (o' diamain), but y-chromosome analysis suggests a strong scottish connection.

Drawbacks, thanks a lot to drawing our attention to that documentary. Hopefully someone puts it up on youtube so non-uk residents can watch it. Looks like classic isteve material!

Legs Diamond was of Irish extraction.

But did he teach Derb the 5 point palm heart exploding technique?

'cause that would be like totally cool to watch him go all 'English ninja claw of death' on a bunch of libtards who 'dissed him in April.

From Derb's article:

"Historian (mainly of science) Doug Fosnow called for the USA’s “red” counties to secede from the “blue” ones, forming a new federation. This was greeted with much skepticism by the audience, who noted that the “red” federation would get practically no seacoast."

By "audience", I think Derb means "Steve Sailer". Dwelling on seacoasts and topography is classic Sailer.

(You never know how people will react to having their names publicized in this context. To be on the very safe side, I have substituted pseudonyms of my own devising for all the actual persons at the conference, except for one I have identified by her blog.)

It's pretty obvious who the people are if you follow the HBD sphere.

One day I'll have a bookmark for the Sailer/Derb/? site.

If it weren't for Churchill we would all be speaking German right now, right?

Interesting, I was just watching this video montage from the 80's martial arts movie - "No Retreat No Surrender", featuring Jean Claude Van Damme as a russian villain.

Anyway, the hero gets inspiration from visiting Bruce Lee's grave.

That was on the historical inaccurate Roots. Only the tribal chiefs were allowed to send in their fellow tribesmen as slave captors but why let accuracy get in the way of a fake grievance?

I know, right?

Odd, isn't it, that a perfunctory search so very very often turns one or more up.

The really weird thing is that there are more Mormons numerically in America and diligent searches so rarely turn one up. Mormons are total slackers.

@ Drawbacks, the wiki reads:
"Diamond grew up in an American family of Irish-Catholic values.[20"
whenever i see stuff like this- so blunt, I think its an overt attempt to hide the real ethnicity.

not really, Ron Unz is pretty cool ;)
But there have been enough instances on certain issues- particularly trying to demographically swamp historic european peopled nations - that 90% of the time our assumptions turn out to be correct.

Its like the war on christmas- behind every secular 'atheist' 99% of the time someone jewish or a jewish group is involved. You can ignore that if you want but its the truth.

In the U.S. context, you're ignoring the influence of the Catholic Church and powerful pols like Ted Kennedy. Plenty of American gentiles were in favor of the 1965 Immigration Act and have acted to prevent reductions in immigration since then.

In a European context, this is absolute hyperbole. The most recent fully Jewish prime minister of France, Leon Blum, last held office in 1947, before major third world immigration hit the country. Sarko is only one-quarter Jewish and inherited the problem rather than caused it. The Scandinavian countries have had experienced significant third world immigration even though they have miniscule Jewish populations and have never had governments headed by Jews. When will you WN's realize that your own co-ethnic white gentiles have done at least as much as the Jews to sell you out?

- Interesting example- I dug around online today to see if I could find out how the mockery of Tim Tebow's Christian prayer behavior, "Tebowing" started. Seems it was started by a fellow named Jared Kleinstein...

But who are they selling us out to? To the Zionists. And are they doing so because they are able to act freely or are they under a kind of coercion, blackmail, or bribery? Such questions are relevant in assigning responsibility.

How important to Ted Kennedy was it to be in the good graces of the Jewish media, Jewish intellectuals, and Jewish money?
