I am now running my annual July fund-raising campaign to celebrate the twelfth anniversary of the establishment of Behind the Black. For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. These companies practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.


Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Leftist Jewish cafe owner attacked by leftists

They’re coming for you next: Manny Yekutiel, a leftist Jewish cafe owner in San Francisco who worked on the election campaign’s of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, is now being picketed and attacked by other leftists because he supports Israel.

[O]n Wednesday, protesters associated with the Lucy Parsons Project, a self-described “radical black queer direction action group,” joined other groups to yell Yekutiel was a “Zionist gentrifer,” and “Zionists out of the Mission!” The Lucy Parsons Project even tweeted their instructions to do so: “Join our boycott and picket line every Wednesday at 6:30pm, Zionists out of Palestine and Zionists out of the Mission!!!”

The Forward reports that the group “has protested at Manny’s every Wednesday this month, and says it will continue protesting every Wednesday until Manny’s is ‘shut down.’ The Project only has about 300 Twitter followers, but among the protest’s supporters is a local rapper, Equipto, with 14,500 followers.”

Equipto had tweeted, “Tonite & every Wednesday at 6:30 pm. 3092 16th st & Valencia.The people are boycotting Manny’s cafe. A proud zionist & gentrifier has come into the Mission district. Please read the literature to fully understand why folks have organized. #BoycottMannys #SaveFrisco #FreePalestine.”

The Lucy Parsons Project echoed, “Come out Tonight and every week Wed. at 6:30pm to help our comrades at Black and Brown run this gentrifier Zionist Manny (Emmanuel Yekutiel) the [deleted] out of San Francisco!!!

It doesn’t matter that this guy created a cafe aimed at promoting Democratic leftist politics, he is Jewish and not black or brown and supports the only democratic nation in the Middle East. His business must be shut down!

Maybe they should try smashing the windows of his business and looting it. It has worked before.

Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

    I think “direction” should be “direct”. Translation, they’re a mob for hire.

    Bob is right, they’re racists, But they >CAN NOTWE< know the correct way, deviationist !!"

    Those of historical bent will instantly be reminded of the fate of the Jacobins and Mensheviks. If I was a leftist I'd be stocking up on ice picks.

  • pzatchok

    The left is a devout group.
    They have just one problem. They do not have a single set of beliefs. At least not a single set of complete beliefs.

    As an example. One group wants to protect the whales and they are willing to kill and die for that belief. And they act on it.
    They place the life of one whale above all their own lives and that of other humans.
    Many of these members and their supporters also believe on the woman’s right to have abortions at will. That does not sound like a logical belief.

    One group, Antifa, wants to stop fascism. By violently physically oppressing those they think are against them. Without proof. They say they stand for free speech but at the same time oppress the speech of those they do not agree with.

    The vast majority on the left say they do not want violence but stand quietly by and watch. They cry about perceived threats against themselves while making and supporting threats against those they do not agree with.

    The only thing that brings them all together is their common hatred of all things conservative and on the right.
    If a conservative said the sky was blue they would argue for a week it was not.
    And now when proven wrong they call in the goon squads.

    This is just a goon squad for hire.

    The left is the new fascists movement and do not even realize it. Old school democrats who support them do not even know they are supporting violence and oppression. They do not even realize they are cutting their own throats.

    When I talk to old school democrats they realize they are more conservative and right leaning than they ever thought.
    Some realize this but will not stop supporting the Dems. Its their family tradition.

    The Jewish community in New York should take note as they have been supporters of the dems.

    I see the “writing on the wall”, most reading this site see it too.

    “Bob is right, they’re racists, But they >CAN NOTWE CAN NOT < be bigoted as everyone knows that is impossible for the Left's chosen victims to be so.

    'Only WE know the correct way, deviationist !!"

    Sooner or later, the Left always turns on the Jews. It’s as predictable as gravity.

  • Steven

    The inevitable end to all Leftist policy is to consume itself. Fun to watch, like a slow motion train wreck. Just don’t get in its way.

  • Steven: I am sorry, but I do not derive pleasure from watching these bigoted fascists destroy the lives of innocent people.

    I also know that if we don’t take the threat they pose seriously, they will eventually turn their wrath on us all. You won’t have a choice. You will be in their way.

  • Richard M

    You really do wonder how far off a localized Kristallnacht might be at this point.

  • wayne

    I tend to agree with Steven– the left will always consume itself. It’s what they do, it who they are.
    But as well, they will inevitably drag us ALL under with their twisted delusions.

    Below is a 30 second Youtube of a newsreel showing a meeting between Fascist Socialist hitler and the Islamist Fascist Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. The Grand Mufti Amin al-Husseini was Yassir Arafat uncle.

  • commodude

    The left is an ouroboros, constantly seeking new outrage to fuel the masses, even within itself.

    As it is currently constructed, it is the nihilist fringe attacking anything and everything which is guilty of whatever perceived slight, aided, abetted and funded by the stars of the modern world.

    Eventually it WILL turn on its own master, as the masters feeding the money to perpetuate the beast are everything they hate.

    Wealth doesn’t equate to intelligence.

  • Edward

    The left does consume itself, but this is occurring after it had turned its wrath on the right.

    Bakers, doctors, teachers, corporate executives, churches, and even public servants have been punished for not conforming to the left’s politically correct lies of the day. Even when I was in college, decades ago (though I’m not that old), we joked that there needed to be a PC magazine that told everyone what the current politically correct speech and thought were, because no one could keep up with all the rapid changes — even back then, they changed seemingly daily. Those who conformed were only called racist or fascist once in a while, as they learned the new politically correct lie, but those of us who were secure in our morals were pretty much racist, fascist, or whatever-ist all the time.

    Everyone who did not determine what was politically correct felt the left’s wrath every once in a while, but those who were not left enough, felt it continually. More recently, the (corrupted) government got into the act by unjustly punishing right wingers with cruel and unusual punishments.

    The left turned on itself some time ago. For example, a Google employee (who pointed out that you can’t have diversity if you declare everyone to be the same) was fired because reality is not in the realm of leftist thinking. The left thinks that it can have it all ways, such as being tolerant even as it denounces those that it claims to defend. When anyone can be any protected group that he chooses, just by declaring it to be so, then the Civil Rights Act and its descendants, such as Title 9, become meaningless. If a man can compete against women merely by declaring himself a woman, then what is the difference between men’s sports and women’s sports? Women are consumed by the leftists’ abuse of Civil rights.

    But then again, the Civil Rights Act was a right wing creation (Martin Luther King was a Republican, after all), and the left only signed on reluctantly because they were losing that battle, and LBJ realized that if they hijacked the concept then they could continue their racism in an insidious manner. Continuing Affirmative Action, after all these decades of advantage, assumes that most minorities are inferior, thus they must have a hand up or a handout. Once again, protected groups are consumed by the very laws and regulations that — theoretically — are supposed to protect them but have been hijacked into keeping them from success.

    And why are these groups protected? Because the left has declared that they are inferior and cannot get along without protection. Thus, the left expects these protected groups to vote leftist.

    So if a shop owner of a supposedly leftist group fails to conform to the PC directive of the day, he must be publicly attacked, expelled, and shunned as a sacrificial lamb on the altar of political correctness so that the other leftists can conform to the new lie of the day.
