I ran in California and I won easily because I was an outsider at that time and they looked for an outsider. (Arnold Schwarzenegger)

Europe is looking for an outsider, let’s make Arnold President of the United States of Europe (see here).

Sweden public broadcaster aired as “science” claims women shorter than men because parents subconsciously feed girls less. (Kevin MacDonald) – Not even Swedes could be this stupid, could they?

Many Swedes are paid by their government to be stupid.

It takes a lot of work to get there. But they’ve made a success of it.

A typical Swedish success story.

But immigrants will help Sweden be a more balanced country.

Most gays are bisexual (cf, among others, Dr Robin Baker). They get sex training with guys, then apply their training with girls.

They’re learning with their male companions good techniques with which yours (a straight guy’s) can’t compare.

Gays learn with men to overcome shyness with women in every circumstance.

It’s easier to learn with men because men are sex-crazed. Gays get a crash course while you take the long way, but time is money.

Why a liberal arts degree holds value in the second machine age. – Skills that make all workers valuable –even those in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers– are boosted, not diminished, by a liberal arts education. (Michigan Future Inc.)

Companies have been praising liberal arts degrees for 50 years. Just talking.

Think in terms of motivation. Why would these students want to work for a company? They’re taking liberal arts degrees because they hate the idea of working for business.

Kevin MacDonald: Ethnocentrism is normal and rational.

In fact, women are xenophiles since chimp females have been mating outside their group. [So that makes men acceptive of female foreigners too.]

And high-status men do not care about immigration because it does not affect their fitness. [Actually, business benefits from low-wage immigration.]

Ethnocentrism is normal for low-status men.

Saudi Arabia has an economic interest in allowing women to drive. (Brookings Institute)

Saudi Arabia has an economic interest in allowing hardcore pornography. So what?

Self-driving cars are already there, waiting to be used. Saudi women will be driving cars when there are no more cars to drive, only self-driving cars.

[Nobody ever thought of Saudi women’s right to drive cars before self-driving cars made that right utterly pointless.]

The reason women in Israel have less problems with rape than women living in Angela Merkel’s destroyed Germany [tweeted as caption to a picture showing Israeli women in military uniform and with guns].

The lack of sexiness of their accoutrement would repel the most accomplished rapist anyway.

a/Jeynie J: So what you’re saying is, discerning rapists only target fashionably dressed women? Do tell us more.

You don’t have to be fashionable to be sexy.

I thought you were going to tell us more about how rapists choose their victims. I’m waiting to be educated.

First thing, they choose them so as to be able to perform or commit the act physiologically.

Up-thread you snarked that the ugly uniforms of the Israeli women would deter a rapist. Are you implying that a rape victim bears responsibility for her (or his) plight? The classic “she asked for it”??

Do you see another explanation?

What would you think if you learnt most rape victims wore miniskirts when they were raped by a stranger?

I’d think I’d need to see your statistics and the source from which they came.

You’d learn rape from a familiar person (family rape or date rape) is the most frequent by far.

But yes, I do see another explanation: the rapist. No victim ever bears responsibility, regardless of dress.

Of course the rapist goes to jail when caught. I may even agree he should be executed.

What does a rapist’s sentence have to do with his motivation?

Stepfathers are the greatest rapists. For them it doesn’t matter what you wear.

[I give myself the last word in this interesting conversation, as the last words of my female contender were words of abuse and I do not wish to displease my reader with these.

I apologize for having no experience in rape and forced sex and for talking from books and conjecture. I admit that I fail to see, now that I think of it, how I could have an erection trying to rape a stranger as sexual predators do but I also acknowledge that there surely are techniques to get aroused in such circumstances or to perform full-penetration rape without full erection –which makes my argument about an alleged required sexiness of the victim specious. However, albeit I don’t rely on police or judicial records, the fact that generally speaking victims of rape are scantily clothed when they are raped must be true, for according to studies 1/rape is conducive to pregnancy more often than consensual sex and 2/ovulating women wear scantier clothing than on average. In my mind it makes no doubt that 2 is the cause of 1 and that sexual predators choose scantily clothed victims, whether it be because they are aroused by them or not.]

b/ Mr W.: Not real good with strong women, pajama boy?

Your girlfriend carries the guns, all right, so what are you doing? Patching your petticoat, petticoat?

c/ Dan G.: Are these beauties good enough for ya? [adding another picture of Israeli female soldiers. I take the opportunity to stress here that women in the Israeli army, although they receive some military training, are not due to fighting on the battlefield.]

They were all raped by Israeli starred officers and some by Israeli politicians into the bargain. [The reason for this reply will be apparent from the next discussion, below.]

I’m guessing you don’t like women very much, eh?

Not when they’re damaged goods.

d/ Julie F.: It take a rapist to know a rapist. How many women have you raped?

If you know what I am, you must like me, then. How many have you?

It takes a rapist to know “it take a rapist to know a rapist.” You’re a darn rapist and I’ll let your neighbors know.

*

The reason women in Israel have less problems with rape than women living in Angela Merkel’s destroyed Germany [This is another discussion starting from the same throught which, by the way, was tweeted by Hollywood actor and staunch Trump supporter James Woods.]

I’m told women in Saudi Arabia don’t have too much problem with rape either.

Not true.

Indeed there’s a lot of raping in Israel.

[Here I’m compelled to rely on my memory as my contender eventually blocked me, making it impossible for me to retrieve his tweets any more. The great thing is that, after I had said a lot of rapes occurred in Israel, he came with the rather unexpected estimate, found by him on Internet, of one out of three women being raped. Then, as he felt he had given me ammunition in the argument, he claimed these rapes were all (literally) made by black immigrants and that Israel had the same problem as Germany and other European countries with an alleged rape wave caused by immigrants (in spite of Israeli women’s carrying big guns, by the way). To which I made the following remarks.]

Ridiculous. 4M women [Israel’s population is 8M]=>about 1.3M women raped. 85,000 Africans, let’s say 50,000 males. That makes 26 Israeli women for each African. If half of them are rapists, it’s ~50 women raped by each rapist. If one fifth of African males are rapists, each rapists rapes ~130 women. If one tenth of the African Israeli male population are rapists, each rapist rapes more than 250 women.

My advice to Conservatives, stop saying to the Libs “you’re the real racists,” just say “racists.” Victory is achieved by those who call their opponents racist more than their opponents call them racist.

Valentine, the one saint known by Protestant America. They only take those who help make money/sell.

Why should Muslims, but even Protestants, partake in the worship of this saint? [In reply to users who objected to Valentine Day being banned in some Muslim countries like Pakistan]

Protestantism is based on the rejection of the worship of saints. Valentine Day shows how deep marketing brainwashing goes.

“Christians are oppressed and persecuted in USA”. Makes sense: after all, they are an endangered minority of only 83%. (Richard Dawkins) [According to another user, the actual figure is more like 70%.]

The truth of the statement does not depend on that figure alone but also on the relative status of the 83% majority.

If your status is higher than a Christian and you abuse him for his faith, then you are an oppressor.

It’s a fact that Christians (those who care) are oppressed, because they’re low status and status difference is oppressive.

Did the teachers from Trump University participate [in parent-teacher conference listening session]? (Kristina Wong)

University is a ship of fools: Erasmus.

I talked to an American professor-doctor, he said to me he can’t speak German. And he’s not from Trump University! [Needless to say, I tweet under my real name.]

He was defending the media against Trump. Yet neither the media nor the university have taught this professor the difference.

*

Freedom of the press: the press is not free from private interests.

The privately owned press, that is, some private interests, call themselves the pillar of democracy. Sheeps agree.

The press is controlled by undemocratic, private interests that are far more powerful than states.

People know what I’m saying here is true, but they dare not articulate it, for labelling power’s not theirs.

The people repress the obvious about the nature of media. They dream a life of two hundred years ago.

They obscurely feel that escaping the dream is dangerous, and it is, as it goes across powerful vested interests and would in any case estrange them from the herd.

As far as I know freedom of speech extends to the president as well. Journalists want to shut him up.

Grant the president free speech for a change. The press can’t handle criticism.

The president has no mandate to attend and waste his time with bores.

Try giving your opinion diplomatically instead of attacking and attempting to take down an American business. (A tweet to President Trump about the New York Times)

The president has no mandate to spare the susceptibility of these and other scoundrels.

Ingeborg, A Viking Girl on the Blue Lagoon

Please support my film project Ingeborg, A Viking Girl on the Blue Lagoon, based on the research conducted by Dr Jacques de Mahieu, director of the Institute of Human Sciences in Buenos Aires (Instituto de Ciencia del Hombre de Buenos Aires).

According to Jacques de Mahieu (1915-1990), the Vikings went as far as the Pacific Islands. As a matter of fact, after they had helped develop a few civilizations in South America (or while they were doing so), they took their drakkars again and sailed to the Pacific. There they left traces of their presence too, in solar myths associated with white gods similar to those of the precolombian peoples, in the fair skin of the aristocracy among the islanders, and in the red hat worn by tribal chiefs, like in Peru, in memory of the red or fair hair of the Vikings. Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl confirmed such data, yet considered white migrations to Pacific islands to be even more ancient. (As explained below, Mahieu himseld was aware of earlier migrations to America.)

My aim with this film is to shed light on these events by depicting the life of Vikings in the Pacific (hence the Blue Lagoon of the title). Viewers will be told the story of a young Viking girl, called Ingeborg, on the far-away islands. Let us follow her steps on the blue lagoon’s sand.

victoriasilvstedt2

Ô Ingeborg, let me sing my song for you…

*

Remember that Greenland under the Vikings was a full-fledged colony replete with men, women and children. Vikings took their women with them when they had a purpose of colonization, as the Goths had already done before them. Of course, when it was raids that were organized, for looting, they did not take women with them in such occasions.

When, after a few reconnoitering travels from Greenland and/or Vinland (their colony on the North-American continents), navigating along the coastline, they decided that those lands on the South would provide good settlements, they brought women with them.

The story of Quetzacoatl, the blond-bearded ‘god’ of the Aztecs, tells us something about it. Quetzacoatl was a Viking whose real name was, according to De Mahieu, Ullman*. During one of his trips further to the South, some Vikings, led by the ‘god’ Tezcatlipoca, rebelled against him. With loyal followers, he then left the rebels and the country altogether.

Whether it is these men or others from the same people who later travelled from America to the Pacific islands, I assume they took their women with them, and thus a little girl called Ingeborg might well have treaded with her soft, tender feet the warm sand of the atolls, her long sunny hair shaded by the palms of the blue lagoon, as early as 12-13th A.D.

* Ulmén : (arauc. ghulmen) m. Chile Entre los indios araucanos, hombre rico, que por serlo es respetado e influyente. (Definition of ulmén from a Spanish-American dictionary: “Among Araucan Indians, a wealthy man, as such respected and influential.”) I don’t know if Jacques de Mahieu knew this term, which looks almost identical with the name Ullman he says was the name of the historical Viking behind Quetzacoatl. According to Aztec myths, Quetzacoatl possessed great wordly riches. Given the likeness, here we could have the same linguistic phenomenon as reflected in such Spanish expressions as ser un Cortés (to be a Cortes) or ser un Don Juan (to be a Don Juan); that would be, proper, “to be an Ullman,” whether that Ullman is the one from Mexico or another Viking explorer and settler.

When the Conquistador Francisco de Orellana made his expedition on the Amazon river, he once met with the Amazons, women from an all-woman tribe. The missionary priest of the expedition, Gaspar de Carvajal, who chronicled the events, described these women as tall and white-skinned. The Indians that the Spaniards made prisoners told them these women were living on their own and that they used to get spouses from other tribes, formerly from another White tribe, now disappeared, and currently with Indians. Orellana then named the river after these women.

It should be noted that stories about women living on their own and/or training in fighting are few in history besides this chronicle. Herodotes mentions a similar tribe among the Scythians (those whom Herodotes called Scythians were later called Goths, whereas the Huns were later called Scythians, which can be confusing; if we follow classical traditions about Scythians, i.e. ancient authors such as Jornandes, Herodotes’s Scythians are the same as Goths). Likewise, Icelandic sagas deal with a few characters of so-called Virgins of the Shield, or Shieldmaidens (Skjaldmær), female warriors.

The Indians told the Spaniards that the Amazons lived in stone houses, unlike any other Indian tribe in the region. The other White people of Amazonia (those Whites who used to be in contact with the Amazons but disappeared before the period of the Conquest) were also fairly developped, with roads and stone buildings, according to the Indians**.

In academia it has long been thought, in spite of pervasive local legends about “lost cities,” that no such developped culture was possible in the region, especially since the soils would not be fertile. Two lines of arguments have undermined this position. 1/ Along the river, the soil is extremely fertile; it is called terra preta (black soil) in Portuguese and is the most fertile in the world. It results from human intervention, that is, manure. 2/ Recently, American archaeologist Dr Michael Heckenberger found remnants of stone buildings in the area of terra preta, which would confirm the oral tradition about Amazons living in stone houses. From the records, no Indian tribe known today in the region has ever developped such a culture.

** Iara, senhora das águas: “Iara ou Uiara (do tupi ‘y-îara ‘senhora das águas’) ou Mãe-d’água, segundo o folclore brasileiro, é uma sereia. Não se sabe se ela é morena, loira ou ruiva, mas tem olhos verdes e costuma banhar-se nos rios, cantando uma melodia irresistível. Os homens que a vêem não conseguem resistir a seus desejos e pulam nas águas e ela então os leva para o fundo; quase nunca voltam vivos e depois os comem. Os que voltam ficam loucos e apenas uma benzedeira ou algum ritual realizado por um pajé consegue curá-los. Os índios têm tanto medo da Iara que procuram evitar os lagos ao entardecer. Iara antes de ser sereia era uma índia guerreira, a melhor de sua tribo.” (Wikipedia; my emphasis twice) This description of Amazonian Tupi goddess Iara as a green-eyed (i.e. depigmented-eyed) mermaid who previously was member of a female-warrior tribe tallies with Orellana’s white Amazons.

Furthermore, the identification of Amazon women with goddess Iara is ascertained by the legend about the talismans known as muiraquita: “O Muiraquitã era um amuleto sagrado e mágico que as Icamiabas [my emphasis] presenteavam os homens que anualmente vinham fecunda-las. Dizem que possuem propriedades terapêuticas e grande fortuna trás a todo aquele que possuir um desses singulares amuletos. Quanto ao significado esotérico de Muiraquitã, devemos decompor seu nome em vocábulos, para compreender sua simbologia feminina: Mura = mar, água, Yara – senhora, deusa, Kitã = flor. Podemos então interpretá-lo como ‘A deusa que floriu das águas’.” Icamiabas is a native name for the Amazons; they are believed to be the ones who distributed among the tribes of the region those magic talismans which name is said to mean ‘the goddess that came out of the waters,” which is precisely what is said above about Iara the green-eyed warrior goddess.

Jacques de Mahieu’s research on precolombian America went further into the past than the Vikings’ time. He writes that the American civilization of the Olmecs is a creation of white immigrants, who became the ruling class over the population of Indios. The cultural achievements and the rests of the white population of the Olmec and early Tiahuanacu culture were the base for the early Maya culture.

Later the Vikings founded a new realm at Tiahuanacu, that became the centre of civilization in America with about 100,000-150,000 inhabitants. Later they founded the Inca empire. Here the state was based on a caste-system divided between the ‘sons of the sun’ (white kings and nobles) and the aboriginal Indio population.

In Peru, the Spaniards reported several times meeting whites, especially in the upper caste of the Incas, where women were described as blonde and fair-skinned, reminding them of ‘Castillan beauties.’ For some reason historians tend to dismiss these accounts by the Conquistadores as deceptive.

The Inquisition in America destroyed almost all documents from precolombian civilizations. Jacques de Mahieu, and several others, also said that Templars sailed to America when their order was destroyed in Europe. The Templars were an order of noblemen originally founded by Norman knights. They seem to have practiced a Gnostic form of Christianity. It is said that Cathars joined their ranks after the Crusade that annihilated their community as such.

Templars’ ranks being filled with Norman gentry, descendants of King Rollo and the Vikings, these men, according to De Mahieu, knew about America, as their relatives from across the Atlantic had made several trips between the two continents, informing Norman rulers of America’s existence and leaving them navigation maps. De Mahieu wrote about maps that he had found in the town of Rouen, Normandy. With the help of such maps, Templars would have been able to sail to America in order to escape persecution from the Church.

When the Spaniards came, and with them the Inquisition, the Church would destroy all traces of Templar presence in America. The Gnostic teachings that the Church attempted to erase by smothering Cathars and Templars, in the same way the Church pursued them in the Visigothic kingdom of Septimania (Languedoc), burning practically all extant texts in Gothic language, were caught in its tentacles as far as precolombian America!

I have in my library an abridged version, in French translation, of the General History of the Things of New Spain (Historia general de las cosas de Nueva España, 1569) by Fray Bernardino de Sahagun, Spanish missionary in Mexico, knowledgeable in nahual and all things Indian. His book was written before the prohibition by Emperor Felipe II, in 1577, imposed on all research about American Indians’ customs.

In a chapter called “Evangelization before the Conquista,” Sahagun describes various items hinting at a knowledge of the Catholic faith by Indians. He opines and writes that the Indians had been converted to the Christian faith in a remote past but, as they were no more Christians at the time of the Conquista, they must have forgotten most of what had been carried to them by some long-dead missionaries.

Among traces of white prehispanic presence in America, Sahagun names the following. Although there were no plants or cereals, such as wheat, nor animals, such as cows, of European origin in America (a fact with which Jacques de Mahieu disagrees: according to the latter, Canis ingae, for instance, a species of dog that was living as domestic animal by some Indian peoples at the time of the Conquista, was brought there by the Vikings), there existed similar cultural elements, such as:

1/ Paintings found in Oaxaca depicting something that is very much alike the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ;

2/ Devotion practices like oral confession and water baptism;

3/ The missionaries met in different places (Campuche, Potochan) Indians who knew several stories from the Scriptures pretty well.

These were, according to Sahagun, remnants of remote Christian evangelization in America. On the other hand, some customs and myths that he describes remind one of Scandinavian lore. Vide, for instance, the following descriptions (my translation):

“All the brave and soldiers who die on the battlefield are transported to the palace of the Sun. In the morning, at sunrise, they take on their armors and march toward the Sun with clamors and loud noise. Then they march before Him while simulating battles for their pleasure.” Which looks like the Walhalla of Scandinavian warriors (but perhaps all warriors around the world have similarly rowdy afterlife abodes).

& “(At the end of times or rather at the end of the present cycle) The sun will not rise and from the outer space will come down the monstrous, horrifying Tzitzimes to devour men and women.” Which reminds one of the Ragnarok (and its monstrous dragon Nidhogg).

Finally, Sahagun describes what we already said above, that Quetzacoatl, leader of the Toltecs of Tula (Thule?), was opposed by some of his men, here described as necromancers, chief among whom was Tezcatlipoca, god of putrefaction, and that he left his people, yet saying he would come back. Whence came the fact that first the Spaniards were welcome by the Aztecs as returning gods.

This work shows that the idea of Vikings having played an influential role in precolombian America was already in circulation at an early date.

With regard to the Pacific islands, the following early anthropological observations about local populations by famous explorers Bougainvillier and Cook may corroborate Mahieu and Heyerdahl’s writings, if the formers’ reports did not trigger the latter’s research in that particular direction to begin with:

Le peuple de Taiti est composé de deux races d’hommes très différentes … [Pour les uns] Rien ne distingue leurs traits de ceux des Européens; et s’ils étaient vêtus, s’ils vivaient moins à l’air et au grand soleil, ils seraient aussi blancs que nous. … La seconde race est d’une taille médiocre, a les cheveux crépus et durs comme du crin et ses traits diffèrent peu de ceux des mulâtres.” (Voyage autour du monde) My translation: “Taiti’s people is composed of two very different races. … [As to the first] Nothing in their traits differs from those of Europeans, and had their custom been to wear clothes rather than to live outdoors under the sun, they would be as white as we are. … The second race is of shorter size, their hair is frizzy and stiff as horsehair, and their traits hardly different from those of mulattos.”

As to Captain Cook, here is how he describes chief Waheatua (I translate from the French version I have in my library): “He had a pretty fair complexion and his hair was smooth and light brown, reddish at the tip.” (Il avait un teint assez blanc, et les cheveux lisses d’un brun léger, rougeâtres à la pointe.)

The research of Jacques de Mahieu has been carried on by Prof. Vicente Pistilli, who founded in Asuncion the Instituto Paraguayo de Ciencia del Hombre on the model of Mahieu’s Buenos Aires institute. Here is a short biography, from Pistilli’s book La Cronología de Ulrich Schmidel, Instituto Paraguayo de Ciencia del Hombre, 1980:

El autor señor don Vicente Pistili S. nació en Asunción el 27 de Febrero de 1933. Graduóse de Bachiller en Ciencias y Letras del Colegio Nacional de la Capital en el año 1951. Obtuvo los siguientes títulos universitarios : Topógrafo (1954), Licenciado en Matemática (1955), Ingeniero Civil (1958), Malariólogo y Sanitarista (1962), Licenciado en Filosofía (1965), Licenciado en Teología (1967). (…) El Profesor Ingeniero Don Vicente Pistilli S. ha colaborado con la Educación Paraguaya, siendo el primer docente a Tiempo Completo en Matemática del Colegio Nacional de la Capital. (…)

Cuando en 1972, el Profesor Doctor Don Jacques de Mahieu publicó la comunicación cientifica “Las Inscripciones Rúnicas Precolombinas del Paraguay” [my emphasis], el profesor Pistilli comprendió en toda su magnitud la importancia que tenía el descubrimiento arqueológico del notable investigador francés, quien abría una vía nueva para la investigación de nuestro pasado precolombino. Así fué como, conjuntamente con un grupo de intelectuales paraguayos, crearon el Instituto Paraguayo de Ciencia del Hombre, asociación civil de carácter científico. (…)

Pistilli ha dirigido equipos nacionales de investigacion arqueológica, con resultados positivos en todas ellas, relevándose inscripciones rúnicas, dibujos nórdicos, bosques sagrados, caminos precolombinos y monolitos tallados. Además ha realizado importantes investigaciones lingüísticas, las cuales confirman la influencia nórdica precolombina en el Paraguay.
