Default H.L. Mencken Quotations

H.L. Mencken’s Opinion of “The Veteran”

“The average soldier found in the army a vastly more spacious life, with many of the privileges of a chartered libertine. . . . If he did a little stealing it was one of his privileges as a savior of humanity. If he was rough and brutal it was a sign of his fighting spirit. Moreover, he could look forward to distinction and respect for the rest of his life, with a long list of special privileges. In every community in America, however small, there are local notables whose notability rests wholly on the fact that they were once drafted into some war or other . . . . Their general intelligence is shown by the kind of ideas they advocate. They are, in the main, bitter enemies of the liberty of the individual, and are responsible for some of the worst corruptions in politics. The most grasping of all politicians is the veteran.”

H.L. Mencken, writing about World War I draftee veterans in A Mencken Chrestomathy, pp. 93-95.

(Believe it or not, this was written long before John McCain became a senator).

How far the gentlemen of dark complexion will get with their independence now that they have declared it I donít know. There are serious difficulties in their way, the vast majority of people of their race are but two or three inches removed from gorillas. It will be a sheer impossibility for a long long while to interest them in anything above pork chops and bootleg gin.

A newspaper is a device for making the ignorant more ignorant and the crazy crazier.

My two favorite Henry Louis Mencken quotes:

"Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods."
"If a politician found he had cannibals among his constituents, he would promise them missionaries for dinner."
- H.L. Mencken

I have a book of quotations called The Great Thoughts which has some really good quotes by Mencken especially one about religion which he basically says is a curse to mankind .rs I know of one good quote the guy who started Readers digest magazine. He says it may be successful because nobody ever lost money by underestimating the taste of the American people. I was just looking at some of the quotes by Alexis de Toqueville the French statesman who visited America around 1850 and wrote about what he saw.I was struck by how similar his observations of America then we're to Americans today.
John Stuart Mill also had some really interesting quotes too and we in the same era. I might get his book called On Liberty.

Mencken lived in the first half of the twentieth century when the USA was basically white and he said all these critical things about the people of that era. I keep wondering what he would think of our third world toilet culture now. Look at yytv with all the silly celebrity gossip shows like TM Z and Jerry Springer, rap music everywhere , whiggers, fat white cuck niggerball addicts, televangelists,
Obese people,homeless, new age crazies,everybody is a victim of something.
He would want to move to Europe but those countries are f Ed too.

Mencken also wrote:

I admit freely enough that, by careful breeding, supervision of environment and education, extending over many generations, it might be possible to make an appreciable improvement in the stock of the American Negro, for example, but I must maintain that this enterprise would be a ridiculous waste of energy, for there is a high-caste white stock ready at hand, and it is inconceivable that the Negro stock, however carefully it might be nurtured, could ever even remotely approach it. The educated Negro of today is a failure, not because he meets insuperable difficulties in life, but because he is a Negro. He is, in brief, a low-caste man, to the manner born, and he will remain inert and inefficient until fifty generations of him have lived in civilization. And even then, the superior white race will be fifty generations ahead of him

Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.
