First off, it may seem like Peak Stupidity is nothing but a spin-off, as they used to say in TV land, of The Unz Review. I do take a lot of idea for posts off that site. I wouldn't say that's where all our news comes from, but it leads me pretty well to stories. Also, it's my go-to site for entertainment, especially for the posts from iSteve (Steve Sailer, that is.)

The first 2 of these 3 items today come from that site, so make of that what you will.

Jared Taylor is a race realist and the guy we featured in a short interview clip at the beginning of this week.* He puts together weekly posts on his American Renaissance site that get crossposted here on The Unz Review. I wrote "puts together" rather than "writes", as these are a mixture of short pieces of text, some pictures, and some video clips. I realized that his own video show does the same job of putting the same things together. Mr. Taylor speaks in a soft civil manner, always calm, collected, and reasonable.

This latest one about the fall of not Minneapolis (yet), but South Africa is only 13 minutes, but he does an excellent job in that time. The ruination of that once 1st-World country was the subject of an 8-part series here on Peak Stupidity earlier this year called Cry the DeConstructed Country. (See Part 1 - - Part 2 - - Part 3 - - Part 4: Anecdote on Anti-Apartheid - - Part 5: Cold and Hot Wars, and the Commies, of course - - Part 6: Africa Wins - - Part 7: 1st World Memories of Suid Afrikaanse Lugdiens and Part 8: As Falls S. Africa ....) This video goes right along with what we had to say, but his format is perhaps better.

From Jared Taylor's post Mooncalves at Harvard Think They Understand Africa:

What a sorry shame it is, all brought on by do-gooder Whites of the Western world, for the most part. It's just under 3 decades since White rule ended, and South Africa has first gradually, and lately, suddenly, gone to ruin. Please take the time to watch that short video.

Next, for those interested in The Fall of Minneapolis documentary, in addition to that review of ours, you will probably want to check out this review by one Anastasia Katz**. This one is so much more comprehensive than ours that we feel a bit embarrassed. However, I don't usually have time for something like that - yesterday's post was just a quick overview, and the idea was to help spread the video around. The comments under Miss Katz's review are fairly lit.

Finally, via a friend's link to ZeroHedge, I got to the Tucker Carlson interview of Alex Jones. They too, were pretty lit, as apparently, previous to the interview Mr. Jones made a prank phone call to one Brian Seltzer (of CNN) while drinking with Tucker Carlson. I'd never heard of the guy before, but Alex Jones has. This is not typical of the whole 1 hour, 35 minute interview, but, yeah, Alex Jones most definitely had heard of Brian Seltzer.

(Rumble lets one specify a start time, but not an end time, apparently. Give Tucker a chance to come back on and then give him ~20 more seconds.)

Whatever meds he's on, I want the opposite, Doc! OK, look, I like Alex Jones. He speaks a lot of truth. Besides all of the discussion in the whole interview, which I can't get into here, Mr. Jones has been a stalwart Constitutionalist in the past, back when there was still more of a point to it. His voice has improved a bit, part of the time too. However ... he can get a little, errrr, carried away? Nah, I think this is entertainment, and he loves it so. So does Tucker, So do I. I am smiling as I write this.

Is he even using a phase shifter at one point, you know, like Paul McCartney used to?

That was a busy blog week! We'll never run out of material, folks. Thanks for reading and writing in. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

* Additionally, we've written about him here and here.

** I had to guess on Miss vs. Mrs, as I couldn't find out much about her. She is wisely pretty anonymous. What I did find out is that, lo and behold, he writes for American Renaissance too here. In fact, I realize I'd read her previous article.

PS: Greetings, Achmed,

Too bad I can't exchange those at the going rate.

It is pretty interesting that the defunct Zimbabwe currency (especially the 100 Trillion Dollar Notes) are one of the few paper currencies that are holding their value. (As a collectible.)(Funny that the Chinese counterfeiters are cashing in on that.)

I've never seen a Clinton $3 note before...

I have seen these, (well, not in meatspace...)

PS: Good evening, Mr. J1234,

Maybe the Mandela Gold Medals aren't selling because no one knows if they're real 9999 gold or gold rolled or gold plated or whatever.(?)

Surprisingly (to me) this Nelson Mandela Signed "Long Walk to Freedom" w/ "Life in Photographs" sold for $1,376.51...

Which is quite a bit less than some others are asking...

As you say, you can ask anything you like but it doesn't mean someone will buy it for that price.

Still pretty wild what some people will spend on some things...

PS -

Adam, I think it's one of those "asking price" things. A lot of gold coins are purchased on eBay. I see there are few Mandela coins listed for sale but a very small number of them sell. When I searched completed sales for "Mandela gold medals" I found few for sale and with none sold. When I searched "Mandela gold coins" I found a one half ounce coin sold, and at far less than what sellers seem to think the going rate is. The other one ounce coins/medals didn't sell. Not a hot ticket item, but I suppose there are recently enriched BLM organizers who'd like one.

PS: "I'm down to my last $150B..." poor, poor, Adam Smith. I used to have a bunch of Clinton $3 bills I'd pass for fun. I didn't run out, but they'd get so torn up after a long time in my pocket.

So the Chinese are counterfeiting huge denomination Zimbabwe bills now to make money off of the market in Hyperinflation Porn? That's pretty funny.

I have a funny fake-bill story from a friend, but I gotta call him to get one part straight.

(I occasionally gift them to people.)

You do have to be careful when converting your U.S. fiat dollar bucks to Zimbabwean dollar bucks as China has flooded the market with counterfeits. But, yeah, $30USD for $20BZ seems a bit high.

* I agree with Achmed on this one... I don't think I would be so sure a 1 oz, allegedly .999 gold or silver coin with a black man on it actually contained that amount of metal.

PS: I bought a few Krugerrands some years ago, J1234. They were the most popular gold coins for generally non-numismatic (collector value), back before the anti-apartheid movement got on its soapbox and went crazy with sanctions on all sorts of stuff.

Slight digression, but they are not pure gold, with a mix of copper, making them 22 karat. This was done for durability. There is still an even Troy ounce of gold in them, so there's no rip-off there.

Now, on your Zimbabwan Trillion dollar bill, that's pretty hilarious. Yes, you were ROBBED, but at least you're not a Zimbabwan who's been robbed by the black-run government over there since the White man was forced to hand over Rhodesia. (Does this mean there was another 600% CPI increase in that country, or are those bills so worthless as actual currency that it doesn't matter?)

Regarding your main point, white or black men on the coinage, I don't think I would be so sure a 1 oz, allegedly .999 gold or silver coin with a black man on it actually contained that amount of metal. (Don't know about Pandas either, but I'm no expert.)

You guys knock yourselves out - I don't even like American feminists on the coinage. Sure, it's not worth faking those already pot-metal filled coins, but I don't want to embarrass anyone by giving one to him. Vending machines give them out, and that's right back where they go!

I recently noticed that South Africa's famous investment coin - the Krugerrand - still has the face of a white guy on it: Paul Kruger, past president of SA. So why isn't this wonderfully transformed country of South Africa producing MANDELArands?

Who wouldn't pay $2000 for a gold coin with Nelson's face on it? Answer: Most people, apparently. And if the South African Mint's current online catalog is correct, people aren't even willing to pay $25 for a silver version of Nelson's face.

In fact, I saw no black faces on any of their investment coins. There may be some, but I didn't see any. Only Kruger's face and a bunch of different animals. Some of the coins for circulation (not investment) have black faces on them (Nelson M., I presume) but those coins aren't worth much. The RAND is worth a US nickel today, and it takes nearly 100 of today's rands to equal a rand of 1965. Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "FACE value" [Ba-da-BOOM!]

Anyway, that's how proud the South African Mint is of their country's black leaders. I have bill from Zimbabwe, and its denomination is like 20 billion dollars or something (seriously.) I paid about 30 bucks for it on eBay a while back, but I now see they're going for under $5. I WAS ROBBED!!

PS: It'd be nice were that the case - don't think so. His approval process involves some large batches and some other "ooops, missed that one"'s. I noticed when Res refereed to his comment on big SUVs and Trucks in a previous thread, my comment right next to that got approved. (i.e. I think he just caught it then.) However, I'd have thought the writers would have some other software "tool" for this, rather than the same page we see. I dunno...

BTW, while looking to find the comment in question, I ran across this excellent post of yours to the Vax/Covid panicker "HA":

Good one.

I'll check out you S. Africa videos a little later - gotta go for now.

It was only a few minutes after I posted that Satire is obsolete screenshot when Steve approved my comment.

Weird... โ˜ฎ๏ธ
