Ireland’s Plummeting Literacy Rate

By Irish Savant

For a country that prides itself on having one of the best educated workforces in the world, you’d imagine that the latest P.I.S.A. (Programme for International Student Assessment) literacy ranking would have prompted a national outcry.

You see Ireland’s decline of 12 places in literacy, from 5 to 17, was the worst decline of any nation. In maths we dropped ten places, the second worst performance.

Sure, there were the bleatings from the usual suspects. But overall it was treated the same way you’d treat the mad aunt in the garret. “Move on quickly, nothing to see here”. Perhaps we hoped that the world wouldn’t notice. Or some other explanation. The Secretary General of the Department of Education, Brigid McManus, referred to the “significant limitations in design and underlying methodology used by Pisa”

Strange, when we once topped the ranking, nobody questioned the methodology.

Brigid, your typical unimaginative public sector drone (I know her) also emphasised that the results were ‘a complete surprise’.

Not to me. Three and a half years ago, in this post, I forecast exactly what would happen. Entitled ‘Ireland’s education meltdown’, I made what to me was the blindingly obvious point that if you allow, nay, encourage, hundreds of thousands of immigrants who can barely speak English, you’ll have trouble educating their children. How can you teach in a school where 20 different languages are in use, as is the case in many schools today? I don’t care how many support or remedial teachers you have, standards will plummet.

But language is only the start of it.

We have vast numbers of Muslim and African cultural enrichers who bring their own set of problems. The former because they’ll emphasise religious mumbo jumbo and learning by rote, the latter, low academic achievement due to low IQ and an inability for abstract thought. The same as happens everywhere else.

There was, about four years ago, an iconic piece on our local news from Balbriggan. The local primary school had inadequate places to accommodate the ballooning population. It was first come first served. So long zebra-like queues formed – zebra-like in that you saw black/white/black/white ad infinitum.

End result, lots of locals got places as did lots of Africans. And lots of locals and some Africans did not get places. And the Africans didn’t like that one little bit. They complained bitterly that their ‘right’ to an education was being denied. I kid you not.

And the drooling sycophants in the MSM (mainstream media) oozed support. Nobody mentioned the (black) elephant in the room. No indeed. ‘Why could we not have planned things better?’ was the prevailing reaction.

Yeah, like not letting the hordes in at all!

So the net effect of this flood of “cultural enrichment” on our education system was as follows:

(1) Multiple languages in class

(2) Larger, more crowded classes

(3) Large numbers of low IQ blacks

(4) Large numbers of mindless, unthinking, mumbo-jumbo-crazed Muslims

(5) Significant reduction in conventional education funding (labs, computers etc.) to cater for the increased volumes and special needs.

And they wonder why our P.I.S.A. performance plummeted?

Yes, they do wonder. Ms McManus said the findings were “a huge shock”. I kid you not.   >to Full Article

Now onto the costly American side of this equation.

The Racial Spoils System

Memphis, Tennessee 1939

Robert Weissberg, Professor of Political Science

On a fateful September 28th in 1965 (pursuant to the 1964 Civil Rights Act) President Lyndon Johnson signed Executive Order 11246 requiring the Department of Labor to “take Affirmative Action to ensure that applicants are employed” in firms doing business with the federal government regardless of race, creed, color or national origins.


Outside of those who materially benefit from the spoils system, Affirmative Action is a slowly rotting policy awaiting collapse.


Begin by recognizing that few Americans born after 1965 (let alone recent immigrants) had any personal experience with the evils that Affirmative Action was designed to combat. The persistence of racial discrimination or lingering racism is not the issue; rather, unlike seeing “Colored” drinking fountains, legally segregated schools and similar vestiges of Jim Crow, … race-related evils are extraordinary rare as personal knowledge to nearly all Americans.


Indoctrination is so labored that its propagandistic purpose is almost comically self-evident, e.g., Black History Month with its litany of “more needs to be done” grievances and countless other lopsided media spectacles recounting, for the umpteenth time, the horrors of slavery andincapacitating racism.

Public consensus is misleading, since doubters who speak up may be shipped off to sensitivity training or have their public careers ruined. What brave soul would go on CNN to talk openly about race and IQ?

This results in what Frederick R. Lynch called, in his Invisible Victims: White Males and the Crisis of Affirmative Action, called a spiral of silence whereby the majority assumes its doubts are not shared and suppresses them, thus collectively intimidating itself.


Official government pandering has become almost embarrassing —the US Post Office has issued 32 “Black Heritage” stamps commemorating notable blacks such as Carter G. Woodson, Anna Julia Cooper and convicted felon, Malcolm X. Nearly every city with a black population has its Martin Luther King, Jr. street.

Bright white high school seniors sweating out admission to prestige colleges know full well that their less-accomplished but “discriminated against” black and Hispanic classmates have the inside track. Ditto for the ubiquity of corporate sponsored “minority only” job fairs and the “women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply” boilerplate in all employment ads.

Sports fans must witness their NFL teams compelled to interview blacks for top position (including Head Coach) thanks to a self-imposed league agreement designed to deter litigation—the so-called “Rooney Rule”. And what white public figure enjoys the diplomatic immunity bestowed on the likes of Jesse Jackson or the Rev. Al Sharpton?

This is truly an upside down world, in which millions of American are routinely hammered about some out-of-sight black victimization, while personally witnessing the unequal benefits bestowed on blacks.


Decades after Executive Order 11246, millions of whites encounter freshly-arrived (immigrant) black co-workers often needing extra help, or see promotions and pay raises parceled out to avoid “racial discrimination” litigation.

Even the politically correct Main Stream Media (MSM) cannot avoid reporting rampant inner-city mayhem of drug-related gang violence, dysfunctional families and all the rest that was supposed to vanish eons ago thanks to government catch-up intervention.


Meanwhile, overwhelmingly black cities like Newark, NJ, Camden, NJ, Baltimore, MD, East St. Louis, Ill., Gary, IN, and Detroit, MI, among countless others have sunk into near Third-World depravity despite (hundreds of) billions (of U.S. dollars) in aid and black political domination. (so much for the argument that blacks bring a special expertise to the table)


Only the most steadfast supporters of Affirmative Action outwardly proclaim progress. Nearly everyone else knows it to be a lie. >to Full Article.

Blacks Owning Black Slaves

The Old Plantation, ca. 1790-1800. Watercolor ...
The Old Plantation 1790-1800


The fact is large numbers of free Negroes OWNED black slaves.


In 1860, only a small minority of whites owned slaves. According to the U.S. census report for that last year before the Civil War, there were nearly 27 million Whites (today, 200 million?) in the country. Some eight million of them lived in the slaveholding states.

The census also determined that there were fewer than 385,000 individuals who owned slaves (1). IF, all slaveholders had just been White, that would amount to only 1.4% of Whites (or 98.6 percent NOT owning any slaves) in the country (or 4.8 percent of southern Whites owning one or more slaves).

In the rare instances when the ownership of slaves by Free Negroes is acknowledged in the history books, justification centers on the claim that Black slave masters were simply individuals who purchased the freedom of a spouse or child from a White slaveholder and had been unable to legally manumit (to release from slavery) them. 

Although this did indeed happen at times, it is a misrepresentation of the majority of instances, one which is debunked by records of the period on Blacks who owned slaves. These include individuals such as Justus Angel and Mistress L. Horry, of Colleton District, South Carolina, who each owned 84 slaves in 1830. In fact, in 1830 a fourth (25%) of the free Negro slave masters in South Carolina owned 10 or more slaves; eight owning 30 or more (2).

According to federal census reports on June 1, 1860 — there were nearly 4.5 million Negroes in the United States, with fewer than four million of them living in the southern slave-holding states. Of the Blacks residing in the South, 261,988 were not slaves. Of this number, 10,689 lived in New Orleans. The country’s leading African-American historian, Duke University professor John Hope Franklin, records that in New Orleans over 3,000 free Negroes owned slaves, or 28% of the free Negroes in that city.

To return to the census figures quoted above, this 28% is certainly impressive when compared to less than 1.4% of all American Whites, and less than 4.8% of southern Whites. The statistics show that, when becoming free, Blacks disproportionately became slave masters themselves.

Guilt-sodden WHITE Man and his son – “So Sorry”

Whites asking forgiveness for slavery = Pathetic!


The majority of slaveholders, white and black, owned only 1 to 5 slaves. More often than not, and contrary to 150 years of bullwhips-on-tortured-backs propaganda, black and white masters worked and ate alongside their charges; be it in house, field or workshop. The few individuals who owned 50+ slaves were confined to the top one percent, and have been defined as slave magnates.

In 1860 there were at least six Negroes in Louisiana who owned 65 or more slaves The largest number, 152 slaves, were owned by the widow C. Richards and her son P.C. Richards, who owned a large sugar cane plantation. Another Negro slave magnate in Louisiana, with over 100 slaves, was Antoine Dubuclet, a sugar planter whose estate was valued at $264,000 (1860 dollars). That year, the mean wealth of southern White men was $3,978.

In Charleston, S.C. in 1860… 125 free Negroes OWNED slaves; six of them owning 10 or more. Of the $1.5 million (1860 dollars) in taxable property owned by free Negroes in Charleston, more than $300,000 represented slave holdings (5). In North Carolina 69 free Negroes were slave owners (6).  …to full article.

I have just returned to London, where I have lived since I was 11 yrs. old.

I have been away for four years, living as an ethnic minority in a monocultural part of the world, amassing a host of stories to tell disbelieving friends. On the whole, I am glad to return.

I shan’t miss some locals’ assumptions that, being a white woman, if I was outside after dark and usually to walk the few metres between my house and the church, (that) I must be a prostitute eager to give them a blow job. I shan’t miss the abuse my priest husband received: the daubing of “Dirty white dogs” in red paint on the church door, the barrage of stones thrown at him by children shouting “Satan”.

He was called a “f***ing white bastard” more than once, though, notably, never when in a cassock. I will also not miss the way our garden acted as the local rubbish dump, with items ranging from duvets and TV sets, to rats (dead or twitching) glued to cardboard strips, a popular local method of vermin control to stem the large numbers of them which scuttled between the rubbish piled in gardens and on pavements.

Yes, I am very glad to have left (Birmingham), Britain’s 2nd largest city.

For four years, we lived in inner-city Birmingham, in what has been a police no-go area for 20 years. We know that because some plain-clothed cops told us when they asked to use our vicarage as a stake-out to bust drugs rings that pervade the area. Having heard a parishioner’s tales of what his (Muslim) neighbours did to him, when he was wrongfully suspected of having grassed up a cock-fighting ring —we refused— explaining that we had to live here, they didn’t.

Even during this time we saw the area change. When we arrived, the population was predominantly Pakistani.  Now, Somalis are there in equal numbers. Most of the run-down Irish pubs were turned into mosques during our time.

As a woman, it was difficult for me to gain many first-hand impressions of the Muslims. I was generally ignored by both men and women, and on the rare occasion that I had to interact, when for example a car was parked illegally and blocking my gate, I was addressed as if inconsequential.


When my husband mentioned the “dirty white dogs” graffiti to a local Muslim, the response was, “One of your people did it.”

I have to say that the police response was no better when the local Methodists complained about the same thing. They chose not to believe it had happened, since we had removed all sign of it with the buckets of anti-graffiti chemicals we had stocked since we arrived. They (police) asked, somewhat pathetically: Are you sure it was racist?”

To a London reader, born and bred with multiculturalism, I know that my stories may come across as outlandish and exaggerated, and that I must surely be a (British National Party) BNP voter — I have observed people’s expressions as they have listened to my tales of life in Brum.


The Muslim community in Birmingham, for instance, is made up of people from many continents and races, including Afghans, Yemenis, Pakistanis, Indians and Somalis.

There is no doubt in my mind that we need to have the same openness in discussing what is happening to many cities in Britain. If current demographic trends continue over the next few decades, the West Midlands, as well as other parts of the country, will become a predominantly Muslim area.


It is time to rub the rime from our eyes and to look clearly at the shape of Britain today. Everyone living here needs to be able to talk about what they see, without the lazy or fearful, but certainly paralysing, accusation of racism.  …to Full Article

Jean-Francois Revel’s phrase ”a continuous torrent of messages” is especially apt for today’s media, in which there is ”news” fed to us around the clock, 7 days a week. And the torrent of messages is not confined to the sordid ”news channels” on TV or the dead tree media, but it pervades the ”entertainment” arm of the media. It’s obvious to anybody who dissents in the least from the official propaganda that movies, TV shows, and even (especially) commercials carry messages, sometimes in rather sneaky subliminal form.

Even among blogs — created by individuals — the leftist globalist message is omnipresent.

I read a number of blogs on art, antiques, decorating, history, and various oddities, and the default position among those Blogs is that of multiculturalism, one-worldism, egalitarianism, feminism, and pro-homosexuality. These ideas invade even the most innocent topics on many of the Blogs I read.

There is a Blog I read about vintage cartoons and cartoonists, and the blogger sees fit to inject left-wing editorializing into posts which should not be politicized. But everybody who accepts the ‘image of the world and [our] society’ as fed to us by the media, shares this vision of what the world is, and more importantly, what it should be. And as Revel says, as the media-fed image becomes ‘more twisted and distorted‘, the more dangerous the actions and reactions of the indoctrinated become.

The left, obsessed with their ideology, and infuriated at the fact that some people refuse to be conformed to their false image of the world, are at a fever pitch of frustration and rage.

I think most of us who are dissenters from their world of falsehoods are able to ”turn off’‘ politics and the news cycle for a while, and occupy ourselves with healthier and happier things, even if only briefly. But the left, who are as someone said ”hag-ridden by visions of utopia” seem unable to abstain from thinking of everything in political terms. Hence you see a memorial service for shooting victims being turned into some kind of bizarre rally, with cheers, whoops, and t-shirts.

This truly is a religion for them; it is all-pervasive for them. They can’t seem to turn it off and simply take life and the world as it is. Everything is seen in the starkest terms; those they disagree with are their deadly enemies. And yes, there are a few on our side who see things in those terms, and they are not completely wrong to see enemies on the other side. But it is the leftists who hold the power right now, and who have the momentum on their side for the most part. And yet they have not got absolutely everybody under their heel just yet, and they will never rest until they do, apparently.

They are going all out to bring everybody into line with their ideology. But to do so they have to speak falsehoods continually. I’ve often thought that we live in the Age of the Lie; I don’t recall any time in which so many people seem to speak lies, believe lies, and live lies, nor a time when truth was so little regarded.  >full article no longer exists.

Affirmative Action Contradictions

1964 Civil Rights Act Signed by L.B.J.

Irish Savant

I’ve always been intrigued by the fundamental contradictions that characterize affirmative action (A.A.) in its various guises.

First, there’s the blatant inconsistency, underlined most notably in sportthe only activity at which Blacks excel. The recent Winter Olympics have been attacked by numerous pundits as being for “wealthy whites“. Similar criticisms have been made of tennis and golf at various times. There’s ongoing pressure in South Africa to have the composition of the Springboks rugby team reflect “the nation at large“.

However, it never happens the other way around.

In the United States, the NBA (National Basketball Association) is almost exclusively Black, and American Football certainly doesn’t reflect “the nation at large“. It’s even more glaring in Europe where soccer is concerned. The most grotesque example is the French soccer team which is about 80% black. But have you ever heard calls to redress these imbalances? No? Neither have I!

Then there’s the issue of race being a “social construct“. There’s no such thing as race. Look at the nonsense of apartheid-era South Africa. How bizarre, trying to assign everyone to a certain race. Where do you draw the line?

But the same people squawking this (affirmative action) in our faces have no difficulty classifying people by race when it comes to favouring them at the expense of Whites. So it seems, it is possible to classify people by race after all?

Another bizarre example relates to the definition of “historically dis-advantaged minorities” (“Blacks”, to you and me). Under this dispensation, typified by the new Bill Gates Scholarships, the privileged daughter of wealthy Black parents would be given priority over a dirt-poor White boy in terms of admission to a leading university.

Can anyone explain the logic of this?

But the situation regarding Jews is the most bizarre of all to my mind.

It hardly needs repeating that Jews have been at the forefront of A.A. from the beginning. They even led the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) for most of its formative and most successful years. They were among the most effective supporters of the 1964 Civil Rights Act in the US and remain the most powerful advocates of A.A. (affirmative action).

Being naturally “liberal” could explain this. There is another theory, of course, that Jews have deliberately planned this, together with mass Third World immigration and black/white miscegenation, as a means of emasculating their nemesis, the rowdy white male who’s caused them so much grief in past generations.

(Karl Marx in a letter to Baruch Levy, quoted in Review de Paris, June 1, 1928, p. 574 says below:)

“The Jewish people as a whole will be its own Messiah. It will attain world domination by the dissolution of other races (multiculturalism)…and by the establishment of a world republic in which everywhere the Jews will exercise the privilege of citizenship.

In this New World Order, the Children of Israel…will furnish ALL the leaders without encountering opposition…”

But let’s just take the benign scenario, by accepting that their support for A.A. is motivated solely by altruistic liberal motives. (And it might be, I honestly don’t know). You would then expect that, as A.A. takes hold and displaces Whites at every turn, Jews would share the pain and accept displacement at the same rate as other Whites.

But, not a bit of it. You’ll see Jews massively over-represented among top business executives, the faculty at major universities, leading politicians, partners in leading law firms, the list is endless.

I remember seeing a graph of Harvard (University) under-graduates which showed Asiatics to be heavily over-represented while Whites were under-represented. However, if you separated the Whites into Jews and Gentiles, you’d see a truly bizarre profile showing colossal over-representation of Jews, and a corresponding under-representation of Gentiles.

Now let me be clear – I don’t begrudge Jews their success, which derives from the same factors that account for Blacks’ lack of success – intelligence and hard work.

However, it’s a bit rich to be leading the charge for the preferential treatment of “under-privileged minorities” at the expense of Whites, while deftly side-stepping and allowing Gentile Whites to bear the full brunt. And bear in mind, that religion was also expressly included in the 1964 Act, but has been airbrushed out of subsequent A.A. activism which focused entirely on race.

It’s called having your cake and eating it. And Jews themselves have a word for it – “chutzpah“!   –Source

Missouri – Strict on Illegal Aliens

Map of USA with Missouri highlighted
State of MISSOURI, U.S.A.

Nita Jane Ayres

…I want to talk about an issue that Missouri has already addressed in a variety of ways – the issue of illegal immigration. I’m sure you’ve seen the headlines about Arizona’s new law aimed at dealing with those who enter our country illegally. It has been called the strictest immigration law in generations. While Missouri hasn’t gone to the same lengths as Arizona, our state has made significant policy changes that effectively deal with illegal immigrants who enter our state. Because of those changes, Missouri is ahead of the game when compared to many other states that are now dealing with this issue.

In 2007, the Missouri General Assembly approved HJR 7 to place on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri. Voters then went to the polls and approved the measure with nearly 90 percent voting in favor. With that, English became the official language for all governmental proceedings in Missouri.


Another measure that directly addresses the issue of illegal immigration was passed in 2008. HB 1549 requires our Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be here illegally.


Furthermore, the bill makes it clear that illegal immigrants will not have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps and health care through MO HealthNet. With the passage of this legislation, Missouri sent a clear message that illegal immigrants are not welcome in our state, and that they are certainly not welcome to receive public benefits at the cost of Missouri taxpayers.

2009 saw another significant piece of legislation passed dealing with illegal immigration. HB 390 ensures Missouri’s public institutions of higher education do not award financial aid to individuals who are here illegally. The law also requires all post-secondary institutions of higher education to annually certify to the Missouri Department of Higher Education that they have not knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States.


So while Arizona has made national news for its new law, it’s important to remember Missouri has been proactive in addressing this growing problem. The laws we have on the books help ensure the rights and benefits of Missourians are preserved for actual Missouri citizens. …full article.
