We Have No Choice – We Must Support the Democratic Party

Latias: Look at the comment section in this thread.

It really shows how anti-imperialist the Mainstream Left is. Look at the hostility the author gets.

From the author:

[There was a reference to Putin dining with Jill Stein]

Based on death toll, better to dine with Putin than 3 presidents in my lifetime — [W?] Bush, Reagan or Nixon. I prefer cooperation to confrontation. We don’t need a new Cold War. The world’s greatest human rights violator abroad (that’s the USA in case you don’t now) is in no position to throw stones from its glass house. The candidate you mention is not without flaws – she has some unscientific views and that’s practically inexcusable from a physician. But Putin’s crimes abroad pale in comparison to those of every single US president of my lifetime, present administration included.

Yes, that is true about Putin.

First of all, that’s not really the Mainstream Left in the US. That’s the Democratic Party, and calling the Democratic Party Left is some sort of a sick joke. Daily Kos is the site of the left wing of the Democratic Party (the base), but those people are what we might call liberal Democrats, and in my opinion, there are hardly any Americans more awful than these liberal Democrats, mostly because there is almost nothing liberal about them. Liberal Democrats in the US are basically rightwingers in most of the rest of the planet.

The problem is that both parties are utterly committed to horrific US imperialism. The US is the imperialist pig enemy of all of mankind, but both parties are just fine with that and the majority of the American people think it’s great too. So the imperialism is probably going to be one of the last things to go. Trump ran as isolationist, but he is now governing as a wildly crazed typical American imperialist pig. Recall how horrifically imperialist even Bernie Sanders was. This murderous imperialist pig crap is nearly woven into the very genes of Americans. It will be very hard to root out.

We have to support the Democratic Party though. We have no choice. They sort of suck, but the Republicans are 50X worse. And the Democrats do do quite a few good things. The problem is more that there is progressive agenda simply yields incremental change. I can live with Democrats. I can’t live with Republicans. The Republican Party is one of the most extreme rightwing parties on the whole planet.

Look, let’s get real here. The United States itself is one of the most extreme rightwing countries on the planet. That’s the people of the US. The people – Americans – are basically fanatically ultra-rightwing freaks. They are out of step with nearly the entire planet. There are hardly any nations on Earth as rightwing as the US.

The only country more rightwing than the US I can think of is Colombia. Show me any other country anywhere on Earth where majorities regularly elect parties that are as radical right as the US Republican Party. Show me one country, one.

Well I will say that the new British government is trying to copy the Republican Party. But I do not think even the horrific Tories are as bad as the Republican Party. But the Tories are probably one of the only countries on Earth that actually ape the US Republicans. US Republican Party conservatism is pretty much rejected across the board in most every country on Earth.

Just a question. How rightwing are the governments of the Baltics and the Czech Republic nowadays? I do not think they are as rightwing as the US Republican Party. Estonia and Latvia are horrible countries, and all of the Baltic countries are Nazi countries with Nazi populations. Ukraine is run by out and out Nazis and maybe half the population are out and out Nazis, but even they do not practice US Republican Party conservatism.

And the present government does not even have the support of the majority. The only reason they are in power is because they outlawed the main opposition party, murdered some of its lawmakers and quite a few of its activists, and tried to set the house of its presidential candidate on fire. They failed in the last one, setting his neighbor’s house on fire. Oh by the way, the Ukrainians had the full support of the US in all of us. The US supported them as they outlawed the opposition party, murdered opposition lawmakers and many activists and tried to burn the opposition presidential candidate to death. After all, this murderous Nazi party was put in by the US government in a US-sponsored coup.

Is Part of Bannon’s Project “Make America White Again”?

Subir: I don’t think people here appreciate the driving force behind the Bannon-sponsored immigration orders.

Bannon wants to reverse the demographic changes that have occurred in this country after the 1965 Immigration and Naturalization Act was passed. This is about making America White Again. Very literally. Secondarily it is about Making America Christian Again.

That’s why the white-supremacists love Bannon and Trump. They want a separation of races and religions.

I will have to do a diary about this because people keep assuming this is about illegal immigration or employers or some other shit like that. It’s not. It’s about racial purity, plain and simple.

Ellid: We rarely agree, but I think you have a point on this. Bannon and the other racists do not at all like the idea of America becoming browner, even though demographically it’s inevitable.

These superb comments were taken from Daily Kos. I actually had never before thought of Bannon’s project in this way, but this may indeed explain his goals in part, and it also explains why he is such a hero to the Alt Right.

Some feel that Trump’s right-hand man Bannon has a “make America White again” agenda of reversing the White demographic decline after the 1965 Immigration Act and years of illegal immigration. There does not seem to be any sense to all of these anti-immigrant decrees except to attack immigrants solely on the basis that they are largely non-European. If immigrants were mostly Swedes and Italians, these anti=immigrant projects would not be underway.

Even the illegal immigration project is mostly about race and culture. If we had 11 million Norwegians and Portuguese illegal aliens living here, no one would care. In fact, there would be a clamor to legalize them.

This is why the White Supremacists on the Alt Right are so ecstatic about Bannon. These people also want to halt White demographic decline and even reverse it if possible. This is actual one of the Alt Right’s Number top projects, if not the top project. It is only in looking the demographic changes flowing from Bannon’s anti-immigrant decrees that these executive orders start to make sense. I believe that Bannon may indeed be on board with the White Supremacist project to halt White demographic decline and even reverse it if possible.

Taking the Sex Stuff out of the Alt Left Manifesto

The edited manifesto is here.

  • Promotion of mass sexual perversion to the masses: group sex, threeways, bisexuality, opportunistic or experimental homosexual sex, orgies, sex in public. *see Note 5*
  • Note 5. All of these are perfectly acceptable private lifestyles and sexual choices, but they should be private, not openly promoted, sexual styles. Straight men should not be hectored to engage in experimental homosexual sex, bisexuality should not be promoted as a fad, and the masses should not be openly encouraged to have orgies, engage in group sex, threesomes or public sex. Would you want people encouraging your mother, sister, brother, daughter or son to do such things?

OK, so what’s the problem then? Well, everybody is freaking out about it, calling me homophobe, Puritan, sex-hater, etc. If you know me and know how I have lived my life, you would laugh pretty hard at that idea. It’s also suggested that I dislike kinky or perverted sex. Once again, if you know me, you might laugh at that  idea too. But nevertheless a lot of people do not like this stuff.

My Mom doesn’t. I don’t think my Dad did. Are my mother and father hung up old no-fun Victorian fogies because they don’t want to do threeways, go to orgies, experiment with gay sex, or do it in the middle the street? Is my Mom a hang-up old prude because she isn’t down with getting gangbanged (and I’m quite sure she’s not down with that)? This is where this is all heading. The Cultural Left has so taken over the mainstream culture that you now see articles in the mainstream press cheering on and celebrating homosexuality, bisexuality, orgies and threeways.

I now read in the mainstream  press about how I need to have my girlfriend peg me in the ass with a dildo (look it up if you are not familiar). If I don’t let her peg me, I’m hung up. I have hangups. I guess I need to go to a sex therapist to straighten all this out so I can take it like a man from my strapped-on girlfriend.

I also read articles about how I need to go out and see what a penis tastes like, otherwise I guess I’m just no hip or something. The articles have heads like, Men: Have You Gotten in Touch with Your Bisexual Side? If you read the article, that’s if you can even stand to, it’s all about a bunch of men who are not biological homosexuals at all going out and experimenting with screwing guys just because it’s hip and groovy nowadays to do that. If they were biological homosexuals, surely we could forgive, tolerate, accept or even cheer them on. Because if they can’t help it, they need to have as happy and healthy of lives as we do.

I read articles about how I need to get cucked. That means I go and get great big studly Black guys (bulls) to have sex with my girlfriend while I sit back and watch and enjoy the humiliation of this spectacle. My girlfriend and the bull also join in and insult me, mock, and laugh at me for being so pathetic. I enjoy being made fun of and ridiculed like this, I guess because I am a great big pussy idiot.

Some men even have their women lock their penises in little penis cages so they cannot have sex with the woman. Often they are not allowed to masturbate or at least not much. These guys apparently get off having sexual pleasure sadistically denied to them, I guess  because they are masochistic idiots. It’s not unusual for the woman and bull to want the man to service the bull bisexually at some point. Or to clean up the woman after it’s all done, which is also pretty bisexual.

Oh yes, and the man and woman are always White, and the bull is always Black. So it’s a Black guy cucking the wimpy White guy’s woman while the White man enjoys the insulting nature of this spectacle. The sexual/racial political implications of this are quite clear. If you know how the Cultural Left hates White man and how much they venerate and worship Blacks, you can see why the Cultural Left might want to promote this stuff. Is it “White genocide?” I doubt it, and I don’t even know what that is, but I imagine the Alt Right White Genocide crowd is not very happy at this latest sexual kink, to put it mildly.

I’m supposed to do this! This is presented as the latest coolest, hippest groovy thing to do, and I guess I’m just not with it if I balk at doing this.

I see an article about how a man throws a birthday orgy for his wife’s birthday. I guess he’s perfectly happy with a bunch of other men having sex with his wife. Whatever. The thing is, if I’m not down with this, I’m uncool. I’m not a hipster. I’m not a cool guy. I’m uptight. I have sexual hangups, from too much religion no doubt.

New York Magazine ran an article a while back about a week in the life of a gay man in New York. Well, it seemed to be a nonstop whirlwind of casual encounters and hookups along with an orgy or two thrown in for spice. By the end of the week, he may have had sex with 5-10 different men, I have no idea. This was written up in a, “Wow isn’t this cool and groovy!” style.

Well is it? I mean everyone knows that most gay men are anywhere from quite to sureally promiscuous, but is this something that should be celebrated in the mainstream media? If the gay media wants to celebrate it, it’s one thing. The Advocate or Frontiers or whatever the latest gay press outlet is can sing the praises of wild homosexuality all the want. But keep it behind the doors of the gay press, please, like I say keep the other stuff behind the doors of the adult press. Why should the rest of us have to read about this sort of thing?

Sure, insane promiscuity has caused all sorts of  problems for gay men, HIV just being one of them. There have also been epidemics of Hepatitis A and B, various parasites, syphilis, gonorrhea, and genital herpes and warts. And I assume there are others. All of these combined have resulted in something resembling a public health crisis among gay men, but once again, I think that’s there problem to deal with on their own. If they want to be crazy  promiscuous and catch all these diseases, that’s their business.

I don’t think their diseases make it out into the straight population that much with the exception of Black women, but that is the Black community’s problem to deal with, not mine. But once again, why should we, mainstream media readers, be subjected to celebratory articles about the wildly promiscuous lifestyles of gay men in our big cities?

I also notice that the Cultural Left sings the praises of gay men marrying straight women. I guess lesbians can marry straight men too. That’s pretty weird, but the Cultural Left says this is wonderful.

First of all, almost all of these often-young men are lying through their teeth about their homosexuality. For another thing, many if not all of these men are somewhere on the bisexual spectrum. How many are truly bisexual and how many are just gay men having sex with women, I have no idea, and this sort of thing is very hard to figure out in part because almost all such men are pathological liars.

Now this has actually turned out to be a significant social problem. There are many closeted gay and bisexual men married to women in the US. How many? No idea, but I would not be surprised if it was within the hundreds of thousands. In the vast majority of cases, this situation is a catastrophe. The men are hiding and lying about their gay sex lives from their wives, and the marriage ends up being more or less a disaster, certainly for the woman. Many or most women in this sort of marriage seem to be damaged by it. Further, the women often consider the time they were married to such men as a huge waste of the limited valuable time they are allotted in life. The women consider the years of these marriages to be wasted years.

85% of such marriages end in divorce, which is not surprising. Now you would think considering what a bad idea this is, the Cultural Left would not promote it. Nope. It’s just one more groovy bit of sexual weirdness, and if it’s sexual and weird, the Cultural Left must sing the praises of it, no matter how bizarre it is.

Why in God’s name would a lesbian marry a straight man? That’s so bizarre. Even a lot of lesbians think this is horrible, and they are dead-set against it. But the Cultural Left has promoted this idiocy in articles. I assume they even promote gay men marrying lesbians. Now why any two such humans would want to do that in the first place, I have no idea. The very idea is so weird, it is hard to even contemplate. I haven’t seen an article on this yet, but I have heard of a few cases.

Now look, back in the day, we had all sorts of kinky people advocating this sort of thing too, but I did not mind it one bit. That’s because this stuff was relegated to the adult magazines like Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler, etc. Because that is where it belongs. It belongs in the adult media. If you want to go read the adult media and hear about all the latest kinks and even be harangued to try them, it’s perfectly fine with me. And on the web, there is the whole porn side of the web where all of these kinks are well on display. And there is adult media too. There are sex zines and media outlets that report on the adult industry.

I don’t care, as long as they make it clear that it’s a sex or adult magazine so you know what you are getting into. I just don’t want this stuff in the mainstream media. I don’t want my Mom to pick up the LA Times and read about how she needs to get gangbanged or go do a three-way tonight.  I don’t think she wants to read that either.

I would call this the Pornographication of General Culture. Once again I don’t mind, but it ought to be kept behind the walls of the adult media so people can read about this if they want to or not. I just don’t want to see it on Alternet or Slate.

Do you follow?

Now being against this sex stuff or not wanting to have it officially promoted, sanctioned, and strewn through the mainstream media  is apparently very controversial. People are up in arms about it. I’m a Victorian prude. I’m against sex. I’m uptight. I’m no fun. I’m a fuddy duddy.

I’m none of those things. Actually I am more like the opposite of those things, and this actually a bit of a problem in itself, but that’s another matter.

  • Support for anything goes pansexuality. Come now. Can’t we have some limits on degeneracy and depravity? Just some?

This is still in there, but people are already yelling that this is too puritanical. I am leaving it in for now.

What do you all think about this subject? Do agree with me on this or do you agree with my critics? Chime in please.

Persistent Comments Policy Violations

A number of commenters lately have been violating Rule #7 of the Comments Policy. The attacks on poor and working class Whites are getting quite extreme in the Comments Section. Someone needs to tell me how it is progressive, leftwing or socialist to attack people for being poor or working class. That’s classism of the worst sort and there is no room for any classism whatsoever on the Left.

In particular, we are seeing all sorts of attacks on Whites who are the victims of criminals, particularly criminal NAM’s. This is called “blame the victim.” This sort of “blame the victim” has very strong roots in American thinking. In fact, it is a particularly American way of thinking. I fail to see what is so progressive, leftwing or socialist about blaming victims.

The idea that any White person who does not wish to live around NAM’s can simply up and move away from them is crazy. In many parts of the country now, if you do not have a lot of money, you simply will end up living around NAM’s. I pointed out that in my city of 60,000 people, there are 18,200 White people who are living around NAM’s. If you want to live in this city at all, you are going to live around NAM’s. If you wish to live in any large city of the US, you are going to end up being around NAM’s quite a bit of the time, if not in where you live than for sure in where you work or play.

I don’t see why we should tolerate this anymore. No more attacks on poor and working class Whites!

7. Support for the dropout lifestyle. I dropped out of society and the world of materialism, money, status and all that crap a very long time ago. Most of my friends are proletarians who live paycheck to paycheck. Many people I know cannot even afford a car, so they walk, ride bikes or take buses. No one I know has any money saved up in a bank account. Most are renting apartments or rooms in homes. You may not attack poor, low income, working class or proletarian people on this site. You may not attack people who are homeless, jobless or without vehicles. This whole line of talk is objectively reactionary and will result in an immediate ban.

Immigration Is Not That Important of an Issue

Stalin Tonks writes:

Fine Robert. Go vote for Hillary and bring in millions of non-whites to depress wages for the average person.

It’s not that important of an issue. I never vote for conservatives ever, for any reason, and I’m not changing. Conservatives are my class enemies. Why should I vote for my enemies? Not only that, but I am opposed to the whole basic conservative way of looking at life and the world, which I think sucks. Yes, the conservatives are more correct on immigration, but even there they are insane (Build a wall and make Mexico pay for it? WTH?). They are right on immigration and wrong on just about everything else. Being right on immigration is not enough to make me vote for them. It’s not important for me to switch my vote.

  1. They’re already here.
  2. 2. The country’s already gone politically on this issue. The whole thing is a dead issue to me as I think US society is totally gone on this issue. US society seems to be majority in support of illegal immigration and high levels of legal immigration, if not H -1B’s. Both parties seem to be dead set in favor of mass immigration, both legal, illegal and Hindu 1B. It’s just hopeless and there’s nothing to be done.
  3. 3. Obama deported more illegals than any other President. More illegals have gone back to Mexico than have come in since 2009, so the # of illegals is actually declining in the US. I know in my area this summer, they said a whole bunch of them left.
  4. 4. We are already dealing with it. The INS was in my town about 1-2 years ago, and they stayed for a month in the Best Western downtown. They raided all over my city the whole month and they rounded up 2,300 illegals. It was brutal – they were stopping mothers walking their kids to school and asking them for papers, etc. This raid occurred under Obama.
  5. 5. It’s already been done and it’s already over with. The country’s already gone on this issue anyway on the ground from my POV. You fail to understand that I live in California. This is already post-White America. We’ve already imported millions of non-Whites to drive down wages. We’ve already imported hundreds of thousands of H-1B’s to drive down upper middle class workers’ wages. Our cities already look like the UN. We’re already living in Mexico or the UN and you are jumping up and down yelling that Hillary is going to turn this place into Mexico and the UN. You are yelling about something that’s already happened. It’s like yelling at a cancer patient that they are going to get cancer. My own city is 67% Hispanic. It’s not great, but honestly, it’s not the end of the world. I can live with these Mexicans. Anyway, in Mexican society, Whites rule, so if you are a White in an Hispanic city, you are ruling class de facto. Mexican is not a race. I could be a Mexican. Or I could turn into one. Just start speaking Spanish and call yourself a Mexican. Real simple. That’s all you have to do. White Mexican culture is not that different from White US culture anyway.
  6. Now, if you can find me a nice leftwing nationalist or even left wing of the Alt Right candidate to vote for, maybe we are talking. Get Marine Le Pen’s ass over here and run her for office. Then I will vote “rightwing” in a New York minute.

Why We Need an Alternative Left

Because of morons like this.

This site is so nuts and cracked that I actually thought that Alt Righters had created this as some sort of an off the charts parody of the Cultural Left. Those commenters can’t possibly be real! Those posts cannot possibly be real! No way is that About page real! Then it sunk in. It’s all real as Hell. The About page is real. The Why page is real. All the posts are real. All the commenters and comments are real. Worse still, this is the modern day socialist Left. After all, they want their future lunatic perverted freak society to be socialist. That’s after we get rid of gender, ok? You guys still believe in gender? How quaint! Get with the program! Silly goose, you know there is no such thing as gender!

Then I thought about it a little bit more and it really hit me. This site is not even radical at all. It is actually the Left in the US. It is worse than that. It is the Democratic Party, for Chrissake. It is even so much worse than that. This is actually turning into the normative hegemonic culture of the US and the rest of the West. It was then that I realized how insane we have already become. Quit worrying that society’s going to go nuts. We have already gone nuts. We have met the enemy, and he is us.

This is the Left nowadays. Culturally, it is even worse as this is the Democratic Party and frankly this is the modern hegemonic culture – the modern hegemonic culture is simply the Cultural Left in virtually all of its craziness. In fact, if you look at the Cultural Left freakshow and then look at the Democratic Party and modern hegemonic culture, honestly, you cannot find much of a difference. Even the most radical and extreme Cultural Leftists seem to have a serious voice in the Democratic Party and the hegemonic culture. In other words, the most insane of the already insane Cultural Left freakoids, perverts and nuts are already mainstreamed in the Democratic Party and the US hegemonic culture.

There is not a whole lot left for them to do. Screaming that all men need to go out and fuck a guy? The Cultural Left is already doing that. Read hip articles on Slate and Alternet about “getting in touch with your bisexual side.” Apparently this bisexual side is something that all men have (a Cultural Left lie) and of course it is something we all need to get in touch with otherwise we are not groovy and hip and right on and cool and all that.

Hectoring people to go to an orgy right this minute? Already happening. Lots of articles on Slate and Alternet about how all you uptight sexual slackers need to get out there and do a 3-way right this minute. 2 guys and a girl? 2 girls and a guy? No matter! Well if it’s 2 guys, should you suck the guy’s cock? That would be even better! The more gay you are, the more Cultural Left you are! Let’s hear it for cocksucking men! May we pray for a world where all men are not afraid to suck a dick!

Haranguing men about how they need to live as a woman for at least a week to see what it feels like? Not there yet, but we are getting there.

You will know we are really going bonkers when K-12 schools have classes like Homosexuality 100 teaching all kids who cool it is to get in touch with their gay side. In college, we could have Gay Studies 101, with field trips to gay bars, gay backrooms and gay bathhouses (participation encouraged!). We will have Gender Studies 100 in K-12 where all children will be asked to think through very carefully whether they are really a man or a woman no matter what their stupid genitals tell them. Hey boys! You want to be a girl, go ahead! It’s so cool and groovy and hip for boys to turn into girls! It’s even more boss to get your dick chopped off!  It’s evil anyway, unless you are sticking it in other men. Just ask any feminist!

When we have mandatory indoctrination of children and citizens into homosexuality and transsexualism and every other perversion known to mankind, you will know we have truly arrived. As I type these words, I realize you are thinking I am nuts, but I swear to God, if we keep going on this insane as bonkers perverted freakshow weirdo route, I can actually see that coming.

Blacks in Restaurants

In response to this post, Tulio writes:

Tulio: If anything, I thought blacks have a reputation for being spendthrifts.

But seriously, who in 2016 would even use the word niggardly. Forget the phonetic similarity to the n-word, it sounds like such an antiquated word that it has no business coming out of someone’s mouth in the 21st century. It would be like a teenager referring to someone as a curmudgeon. You’d probably have to do a double-take.

Blacks don’t tip. You did not know that? Black people are notorious for not tipping. They have a very bad reputation that way.

Most servers hate waiting on blacks. They don’t tip or they tip ridiculously low, like $1 for a $150 bill, they complain all the time – usually about stupid stuff, they make a huge mess at the table, they are way too loud and sometimes even start fights, and they are awful when they order – often going into micro-detail, “little bit extra catsup, not too much, extra onions, easy on the tomatoes, horseradish instead of mustard, relish on the side,” stuff like that – just impossibly difficult and petty orders.

There is a whole set of behaviors that most Whites have internalized for going out to eat. Even poor and working class Whites act this way; they can be even worse than middle class Whites at enforcing manners in restaurants. I know because I have gone out to eat with such folks many times in my life. It’s like Black people never got the memo.

A lot of nonracist non-Blacks start working in restaurants as servers, and after a while, they start hating Blacks. It is quite common.

I would say that if you are Black and capable of being civilized like millions of Black people, you might want to act extra civilized when you go out to eat if for no other reason than to improve the reputation of your race.

War Zone: July 4, 2016

I swear it sounds exactly like a war zone out there. I have been watching a lot of combat videos lately, and this is more or less exactly what a war zone sounds like, albeit with some larger explosions now and then. If you want to know what gunshots sound like, well, they sound like firecrackers. That’s the best analogy that I can come up with.

This has got to be the most damned violent Fourth of July that I have ever experienced. I believe the madness started this morning, and the battle has been going on nearly nonstop (just like in a war zone) ever since. Keep in mind that this is a small city of 50,000 people. There’s rarely five seconds without an explosion of some sort. Are people really getting more violent and setting off more of these little bombs, or is it just my imagination? If there are more firecrackers now, why is that? Are people pissed off about something? Are they more violent nowadays?

Machismo in a Working Class Mexican City in the US

Jason Y writes:

Not all Mexican guys are macho, and not all Mexican women are knockouts, these will go out with each other. I’ve seen no evidence these Latin nations are full of macho guys. Just as anywhere else, the majority are average, not gay but average.

I am wondering if the commenter lives with Mexicans. I live with Mexicans. All Mexican men are machos, 100%. Pretty much. I believe it is a cultural mandate, and if you don’t go along with it, you are probably in for a rough ride. I am talking about the ones in my city who are born in Mexico. I saw this soft young 2nd generation Chicano at the bank, and his young wife was just pummeling him verbally.

As far as the Chicanos, around here, the men are 100% machos because this area is poor and working class. There may be a few exceptions such as a few young Chicano married men in the 20’s with a couple of kids.

With the White guys, not so much, but still a lot of them are pretty hard.

We also have some Blacks around here, and they are all machos too, regular tough sort of ghetto or Blacks deep into “Black culture.” I think in ghetto or traditional Black culture, all the men have to be pretty macho. It seems like there’s no other way to be. Once you get outside the ghetto or traditional Black culture, Black men can start to vary more.

There are some Arabs who run the local store and they are all badass, hard, macho guys too. The Arabs accept me, the Chicanos not so much, but some of them do.

The Mexicans maybe, but you can’t really talk to them, as they don’t speak English, and they keep to themselves.

Some of the Blacks accept me, but the ones around here are mostly lousy people who you don’t want to know anyway.

With the rest of the Chicanos, I would say that most of them are machos but not all. Once you get to the 3rd generation, you do start seeing some variability that way, but you are never really sure if those men are full Chicanos or only part. Once you get to 3rd generation, you start to see a lot more assimilation, as the Chicanos also started getting mixed in with Whites, especially Med Whites like Italians. You also start seeing Filipino-Chicano mixes and other more exotic types.

This area is poor, and the only way for a man to act around here is to be a macho. In poor and working class neighborhoods, all the men are rather tough and hard. There’s really no other way to be. I assume that most all the men around here have conformed to this behavior pattern because this is how you are supposed to act here. There are probably some unpleasant consequences around here if you do not act that way.

I assume there are gay men who get raised in those environments, but I believe the gay men get out of here as soon as possible and move to some big cities. The gay men I know who came from this town seem like they all split to Fresno or even Frisco once they hit ~18. There are definitely some real faggoty guys in this town, but they all work at more upscale places like the ATT store, Starbucks, places like that. And few if any of them live here. They all live in Fresno instead. This is probably not a pleasant town to be gay in.

Hanging Out in a Tough Working Class Mexican Bar

I used to hang out in the local bar which is full of working class and lower class Mexicans Chicanos, including some gang or street types, illegal aliens, ghetto type Blacks and a very few working class Whites. They had strippers once or twice a week and I used to go on stripper nights. Some of the illegals and other Mexicans (green card holders or citizens) actually accepted me for some reason.

It was a rather tough bar. There were some pretty tough gang types who would come in often late at night. You could tell they were gang types because they wear clothing with insignia on it. For instance, Nortenos might have clothing that has an “N” or the word “north” in it somewhere. Those types were best avoided, as they seemed to be sort of looking for trouble.

Sometimes guys would come in very late at night looking to fight. You can tell because as soon as they walk in the door, they look very mean and angry like they are going to hit someone or kill someone. Sometimes a fight broke out, often very late at night like 1 AM. I like Mexicans because Mexican men actually love fights. They never call the cops like White people do, which I think is often very pussy. They just let men fight it out.

If it looked like a fight was breaking out, the owner would run over there and clear all the chairs and tables out of the way so the fighters had a big circle to fight in. Then a crowd would gather round the fighters, and the owner would be in the crowd. The owner would give a motion to the men meaning, “It’s ok to go for it now,” and they would start fighting. The fights don’t last long. To Mexican men, barfights are some sort of entertainment.

I never had any problems in the bar, but I go into “badass” mode in places like that. Then you just avoid trouble, be careful who you talk to, and you should be ok. I can hold my own pretty well in hardass lower class bars like that.
