A number of large companies — Coca-Cola, PepsiCo Inc., Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Dish Network Corp. among them — have pulled some of their advertising from Google’s YouTube network because of their ads appearing alongside “hate” videos after a change in Google policy.
Like the rest of the Dot-Com 3.0 boom/bust gang, Google is in trouble. Its ads do not work as well as ads in newspapers, television or magazine at least used to work, and so it can no longer charge the high rates that propelled it into superstardom. People on the internet are not paying attention, or if they are, do not have the money to do anything about it, so are near-useless to advertisers.
As a result, Google is looking for ways to expand the number of ads it shows, and as the world shifts Rightward, more people are watching videos about related ideas — “five YouTube videos peddling racist and anti-Semitic content, according to a review by The Wall Street Journal” — and so Google wants to show ads on those.
Not so fast, says corporate America, which obeys the old bourgeois rule of “criticize no one, accept everyone” because in its view, every person out there has some dollars in their fat little fists. What it forgets is that its mainstay, the upper half of the middle class, has a values system and these are the people who are the “power users” that other consumers emulate.
The problem that corporate America faces is that, while the urban elites are Leftists to the core, the suburban and rural upper half of middle class still tend to be WASP and conservative-leaning. By pandering to an audience outside of this group, corporate America continues to demonstrate its sliding relevance, and the possibility that the new audience it has chosen for itself has not panned out.
Asked about the Journal’s finding that their ads were still appearing with such content on YouTube as of Thursday night, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo Inc., Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and Dish Network Corp. said Friday they were suspending spending on all Google advertising except targeted search ads. Starbucks Corp. and General Motors Co. said they were pulling their ads from YouTube. FX Networks, part of 21st Century Fox Inc., said it was suspending all advertising spending on Google, including search ads and YouTube.
Wal-Mart said: “The content with which we are being associated is appalling and completely against our company values.”
Other companies whose spots appeared, including Toyota Motor Corp. and Microsoft, said they were monitoring the situation. Procter & Gamble said it was working with Google but declined to say whether it was reducing spending.
Every time a sea change is underway as we see happening currently, the market divides into two groups: those betting on the old way, and those betting on the new. Corporate America has backed the wrong horse on this issue because pluralism has failed. People want strong national identity, and that includes the ability to have some opinions considered “extremist” by the Left.
Modern liberals tend to believe that preference for your own ethnic group or even your own nation is a form of racism. Conservatives regard it as common sense and resent being labelled as racist.
…The question of legitimate ethnic interest is complex. Multiculturalism is premised on the rights of minorities to maintain certain traditions and ways of life. But liberals have usually been reluctant to extend such group rights to majorities.
…As Eric Kaufmann argues in a new Policy Exchange paper, accepting that all groups, including whites, have legitimate cultural interests is the first step toward mutual understanding.
The barrier wall constructed of the illusion that racism is the ultimate bad, that any majority self-interest is racism, and that nationalism is unacceptable has now permanently fractured. The concept of “racism” has died, just as the notion that diversity can work has disintegrated. There is no longer any faith in these ideological concepts.
The “we are all one” attitude of Leftism led to a tragic norming where any outliers beyond the average were smashed down in order to create “equality.” This included mashing races together into a “beige horizon” which was cultureless, vapid and pathologically ideological, as the example of Bush/Obama-era America shows us.
Instead, people are realizing that patriotism will kill you but nationalism will give you what you really want: to live around people like you, ending the constant neurotic internal dialogue of a society with divided power and a divided population. People are seceding from the “melting pot” and withdrawing into tribal enclaves.
None of this shows anything except a return to historical norms. The W.E.I.R.D. industrialized world got wealthy, gave proles power and by that motion vaulted itself into Leftism and now something resembling Full Soviet living, and its occupants — like those who lived under Communism in the past — are now rebelling against this sure path to self-destruction.
Our future then consists of one of Balkanization into tribes (“patchwork” as the Neoreactionaries call it) followed by reformation of nations based on ethnic interests. There will then be some short, furious wars as the West re-asserts its own order, and then the rest of the world jockeys for place, culminating in an epic conflict like West versus East Part II.
If anyone asks, they should be reminded that this is the high, high price one pays for individualism, which is presumed (without honesty) to be a victimless crime if not a really good thing by the credulous bourgeois. Individualism means social breakdown through divided power and factionalized population, and from it comes the decay in which the West finds itself.
Starting in 2016, the sleeping West has roused itself and demands now that it not be obligated to commit suicide just because it was acting suicidally oblivious for the past ten centuries or more. Instead of a demand for more rules and proxies like the racism/egalitarianism binary, people are striving for logical fact and commonsense health, and realizing that they will never find that in Leftism, individualism, narcissism or any of the other associated wishful thinking of the innately neurotic human mind.
Affirmative Action is a weapon in the hands of wealthy white progressives. The SWPLs employ this weapon to marginalize, demean and strip wealth and opportunity from other, less affluent Whites who they collectively and personally detest on a deep and visceral level. Audacious Antigone describes the disparate impact of the typical Affirmative Action college admissions policy below.
For simplification, just think about whites and blacks. In both cases, the wealthier a person (or the family he grows up in) is, the better his academic performance tends to be. Whites outperform blacks at every level of socio-economic status (SES), but in the cases of both whites and blacks as SES increases so does academic performance. So if some number of whites who would otherwise be accepted to a school have to be cut out to make room for a corresponding number of blacks, it tends to be low SES whites who get the cutting. The blacks who get in are those who (relatively) narrowly missed getting in before the racial handicapping. These tend to be high SES blacks.
So “Affirmative Action” is a class stratification tool. It keeps down the JD Vances of Appalachia the way DDT got sprayed on mosquitoes in a wiser age. It’s been keeping the dirty and dangerous out of SWPL Honkeytopia since 1965. People who wonder why our nation is so divided need to get past just race. They need to look at how race issues have been weaponized, and just who they’ve been fired at, perhaps since Reconstruction.
It’s not just a question of letting Django off the chain. It’s who he gets directed towards once all the weapons are locked and loaded. Every time the SWPLs unleash a new policy to “undo racial discrimination” or “rectify the mistakes of the past” these never quite seem to rectify the goddam hell out Chelsea Clinton or one of The Kennedys. And this, my five to seven Constant Readers, is in no way, shape or form some unintentional externality.
As technology grew and distance receeded as a fact of life, Americans were effectively forced closer together. Put several competing species in the same ecosystem and the fit will invariable make contact with the shan. One subculture would get to be lead dog; while all the of the rest would quickly come to hate the view. This Z-Man post about Rock Music makes that insight in a different fashion.
Prior to the two great industrial wars of the 20th century, America did not have a unified national culture. It was federation of regions. New England may as well have been a different country from the Deep South or the Southwest. The South was very different from Appalachia. There was no unified “American” culture to which all the regional cultures submitted.
This enforced unification did what diversity does. Diversity plus proximity let to conflict. Affirmative Action was yet another weapon in the war to establish a certain group of Brahmins as cultural hegemons in The United States. How this “Great Society” impacted actual living and breathing blacks was an afterthought. It was about nailing down a pecking order and knocking certain people’s peckers on down into the dirt. It helped finish wrecking what opposition to progressivism still remained standing after Reconstruction and The New Deal. Once the outcaste Whites were cucked, then the outcaste Whites could be ruled.
So what happens when the masses uncuck? Well, Van Jones might have even had a point when he called it a Whitelash. Where he swung out of his cleats and missed on the Lord Charles was his assumption that it was specifically aimed at Blacks. Just as the original Civil War was predominantly white on white; so shall this one be as well. African Americans may get collatorally damaged; but as the YouTube saying goes: “Your blues are not my blues.” This is White on White – in house and in family. An old score, perhaps dating to 1867 is getting settled.
That puts the Left in a new and scary world. Issues can’t get graphed on an XY Axis between Authoritarianism v. Autonomy and Freedom v. Altruism. There’s a Z-Axis now. Elitism V. Populism. People fighting a 2-D battle are in a lot of trouble. This will be true of Elitist “Conservatives” as well as those on the Left. If Van Jones has a shell, he needs to make like a turtle. The artillary will yea verily start to fly.
“Whiteness is not humxness, in fact, white skin is sub-humxn,” she wrote. “All phenotypes exist within the black family and white ppl are a genetic defect of blackness.” – Yosri Khogali of Toronto Black Lives Matter.
OK, ok I’m about to get stoned out of the Amerika.org compound. Even worse than on a typical post. I come to argue that HBD must acquire and exert ownership of its scientific content or it will become a bastardized joke of an academic discipline the way Climate Scientology is currently headed.
It all starts with pointing out the blindingly obvious. You see, #BLM has an intellectual and philosophical problem. No, it doesn’t come from drinking the Molotov Cocktail rather than lighting and throwing it. It happened when they refused the proposition that all lives mattered. At that point they had to explain why, in particular, just Black Lives mattered. At this point, we experience the joy and the pleasure of HBD.
Like the founder of The Harvard University Anthropology Department, we have an idiotic bigot attempting to monetize their own dishonest justification for hatred. Dr. Louis Agassiz practised the psuedo-science of phrenology and attempted to scientifically prove non-Whites were fundamentally inferior. He hated slavery. You see, he was afraid it would lead to race mixing. He was the equal and opposite pole of today’s #BLM Movement.
Unlike Darwin and others, who thought that humans all belonged to one species and that their populations had differentiated through time as they spread geographically and adapted to new environments, Agassiz could not accept that all groups of humans belonged to the same species, and he argued vehemently for the inferiority of non-white human groups. He was not alone in this; several prominent scientists saw populational differences as major and discontinuous, and used various statistical and other arguments to support this. But Agassiz was also physically revulsed by the idea that all humans were equal.
Now Harvard was a leading light of the American Cathedral even back in the 1800s when Agazzis came to be considered a genius for his work in phrenology. Thus it was no great shock that Agassiz’ researxh came to be incorporated into discourse on the floor of the US Senate. In his segregationist manifesto entitled Take Your Choice: Separation or Mongrelization, Senator Theodore G. Bilbo makes the following scientific claim:
Weight of the (negro) brain, which indicated cranial capacity of 35 ounces, as compared with 20 for the highest gorilla and 45 for the Caucasian.
More accurate numbers can be found here. Yosri Khogali bases her own form of racial scientology on melanin content, rather than cranial capacity:
“[they] have a higher concentration of enzyme inhibitors that suppress melanin production. They are genetically deficient because melanin is present at the inception of life….Melanin enables black skin to capture light and hold it in its memory mode which reveals that blackness converts light into knowledge. Melanin directly communicates with cosmic energy,” she added. Khogali then proclaimed: “White ppl are recessive genetic defects. This is factual.”
This brings us to the current state of HBD as a discipline. Like Climate Science, HBD addresses some of the most controversial topics in the modern field of science. Like Climate Science, HBD has some totally brilliant people (Here, Here , and Here) publishing work.
Sadly, like Climate Science, HBD has some obviously fraudulent ideas loose in the discipline like wolves in a hen house. Also, like Climate Science, these ideas get co-opted for political purposes. If you think the psuedo-sapience of #BLM is atypical, you have blessedly forgotten the extent to which Al “The Earth has a fever!” Gore became a deracinated whack-job for hire over Global Warming.
This sort of deliberate and malignant misuse of science could end next week. Climate Scientists like Dr. Judith Curry have launched a nascent campaign to reclaim the ethical and intellectual respect they feel is due their discipline amongst the Geological Sciences. This is condign. I wish her the best of luck in her crusade against the greedy and the disingenuous.
To bring this to point, HBD needs a Judith Curry. It needs one in the worst way. HBD is right about a lot. This won’t be valued or put to good use if the entire field of endeavor is seen as Melanin-obsessed or as measuring skulls in the basement with Vernier Calipers. It’s up to the intellectual best in the HBD discipline to redeem it as a field of knowledge.
No one really knows why, or will admit, why panics happen. The most general statement seems to be this: something scares a group of people, and they engage in talismanic behavior against it, which catches on in the general atmosphere of fear.
Panics can take many forms (we might view them as “inverse trends,” or people conforming to herd activity out of fear instead of desire). Some are religious panics, others purely moral panics, and some simply spasms of terror at the unknown.
Possible reason? Stress-induced psychosis. Having suffered severely from famine, and in many cases wiped out and reduced to begging, the region was in an ongoing crisis. Many had died of starvation. The area was riddled with diseases, including smallpox and syphilis. Waller believes the stress was intolerable, and hence a mass psychological illness resulted.
What does this tell us? That humans are not much different from the possum: when faced with a futile choice, we either play dead or actually die from shock. Being human, we pick a neurotic way to do it so that our big brains feel engaged in a decision that exists at the point of heat death, where all choices have the same outcome and thus, analysis breaks down into paralysis early on.
Another great panic occurred in the 1980s with the Virginia McMartin preschool Satanic pedophile panic. Fantastic stories, even worse than PizzaGate, were told and resulted in eighty convictions, but no evidence was ever found, and the panic evaporated much more quickly than it began.
The thing about panics is that they are metaphor. The actual event is hidden; a symbolic event substitutes for it. So in the 1980s, when divorce destroyed the American home and kidnappings and murders of children accelerated in frequency, people needed a symbol. They chose a Satanic conspiracy behind a day-care center to express and disguise their concerns about divorce, sexual liberation, daycare, childhood and other things being shattered at the time.
Just as the dancing plague came about in response to starvation, and manifested in a burning of calories like a homeostatic viking funeral, the fear of the breaking of the family manifested in symbols of sexual evil expressed with a lynch mob mentality. If only the witch could be burned that easily… but true evil always resides in ideas and generally acceptable practices, not symbols.
The talismanic nature of these panics can be seen in the split between symbol and reality. The reality seems too big to fix, and too scary to accept because it will destabilize the idea of life itself. Instead, the group hopes to destroy a scapegoat and then return to life as normal. This pattern appears many times throughout history.
It is the first world equivalent of the cargo cult, in which islanders believed that sacred ceremonies were responsible for the delivery of supplies from American planes. The symbol covered the lack of knowledge and the utterly arbitrary nature of the deliveries, relative to anything the islanders were doing. With a panic, the ceremony is the symbol, and the cargo is a resolution of the seemingly insoluble issue.
During the late 1980s, as the Reagan years ended, a new type of panic emerged: political correctness. This symbolically beat down “racism” and other forms of discrimination, but in actuality referenced an underlying fear of American collapse in the same way the Soviets were clearly falling apart. Diversity was our strength, and politically we had to have it in order to maintain our WWII sense of moral superiority over nationalists, but it was clearly not working, as ongoing ethnic violence and discontent demonstrated.
The solution was not to address the actual problem because that was seen as a futile task. It was clear that diversity was not working, but to acknowledge that fact meant facing the grim reality that diversity would have to be un-done, which would involve boats taking all people who were not of the founding group (WASPs) back to their homelands. That was the only solution, and people could not face it.
Since that time, the problem of ethnic incompatibility has gotten worse, and in response to feeling that they are being dispossessed and bred out of existence, white people — especially WASPs, it seems — have adopted the talisman of being goodwhites and opposing racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, elitism and saneism because each of these things point to the only solutions which will save us as a society, namely undoing crazy egalitarian programs.
We can see the acceleration of this moral panic through the ongoing pro-censorship campaign on the internet which hopes to eliminate dissent against the present order, as a form of symbolic victory for the idea of not changing ourselves at all:
Twitter subsequently suspended the accounts of other prominent figureheads of the “alt-right” fringe movement, an amorphous mix of racism, white nationalism, xenophobia and anti-feminism.
Twitter has been under fire for failing to address hate and abuse on the site since its founding a decade ago. Balancing its reputation as a free speech haven has come into conflict with efforts to protect users.
Other internet companies have taken recent steps to curb abusive behavior and ban users who violate rules against promoting hate.
In fifty years, these words will be as ridiculous to us as the idea of a dancing plague. Their cultlike nature becomes clear from their binary nature: there are accepted ideas, and anything else is bad, and so burning that witch will reassure all of us that the problem no one can do anything about is actually not a problem, so we can set aside our fear of change and keep on living our lives as we have.
That allows us to ignore the problem, and rationalize disadvantages as a moral victory instead of the ongoing defeat that they are. The lügenpresse is the voice of comforting anaesthesia, guiding us into oblivion by giving us a symbolic means of denying, obscuring and distracting from our actual fears.
It has been said many times that human behavior has not changed since the dawn of history. Panics like political correctness prove this to be true. We have moved from symbolic metaphysical panics to symbolic political panics, and as with the dancing plague and the Virginia McMartin controversy, we are destroying ourselves because our fear of the unknown is greater than our will to succeed.
Leftists hate White Americans. White Leftists hate White Americans and fear their precarious state of being that which they hate. So what does the White Leftist attempt to do? Take control and brand themselves as different White People. According to the DNC Chairmarxist from Idaho, who is running for the national DNC Chairmanship, she is here to dictate what White people are permitted to say.
No, I kid you not. This is what the DNC Chairmarxist from Idaho, Sally Boynton Brown; has to say for herself.
“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt,” Brown said during a DNC candidate forum. “My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, ‘oh, no, I’m not prejudice; I’m a Democrat; I’m accepting,’” Brown bellowed during the forum, which was hosted by MSNBC’s Joy Reid.
So guess what happens? People believe the dishonest DNC CHairperson and start assumming they can help her out and take matters into their own hands. You get garbage like this.
This will eventually escalate into assassination. This will happen for several reasons.
People who disagree with certain opinions held by a spectrum of Conservative, Traditionalist White people feel morally entitled to silence and stifle these opinions. This eventually becomes a self-imposed moral mandate to do so by any means necessary.
People who want those opinions gone are becoming increasingly shrill and desperate in their attacks. The escalation stages have gone from:
Insulting and berating anyone who dares to suggest these people are correct.
“Jokes” about people’s family members.
Direct verbal confrontations with people’s family members for the sake of personal harassment.
Physical violence targeted at these people intended to intimidate them into silence.
People such as Lauren Duca and Chrystelyn Karazin offer passive-aggressive cheerleading for each new step of violence. People on airplanes who get screamed at by nut-jobs have it coming for dressing provocatively.1 Ten year old kids can be accused of being future school shooters by “Comedy” writers and it’s totally cool because everyone is “just kidding.” People can be punched in the street and they deserve it because they disagree with a popular YouTuber while sounding “arrogant and smug.”2
So obviously, the next step is the assassination attempt. At which point the passive-agressive maggots who cheerlead and excuse every step in the escalation progression then silently disappear. No responsibility or culpability is assumed when cute little Knockout Games get turned into, you know, violence-violence.
So I’ll lay this post down a marker. These people who hate the messages of certain individuals and use that as a justification to cheer for escalating harassment against them in public propitiate two consequences that Lauren, Christelyn and all the rest are not going to like.
Someone who is a couple of root beers short of a crate will feel justified in publicly murdering some of the people getting abused by these Leftist demonstrators. For those reading this whose beliefs are to the left; remember what a joyride you thought it was when the weirdo wounded Gabby Giffords.
Someone or a whole bunch of someones who are collectively a good gallon short of a keg are going to decide that the only lives that matter are the lives of people represented by the group most willing to send the other guy straight to the morgue. This is how Rawanda-Burundi turned into Rawanda-Burundi – one cute little “joke” at a time.
That won’t bother the Left. As long as the ones getting the machete are non-Leftist white people.
1 — I wonder if Lauren Duca believes the same about women getting diversity-raped in Sweden and Germany.
2 — No racial stereotyping intended there. No Siree, Bob.
Several African-Americans abducted, beat and tortured a mentally disabled white fellow and posted the video to social media. Among other things, statements against white people and Donald J. Trump were made, and the victim was humiliated with these statements.
Video below — warning, this contains cruelty and violence:
This is an obvious hate crime. If white people did the same thing to black people, with appropriate substitutions for racial slurs and choice of candidate, this would be non-stop national news coverage with much agitation for charges to be filed in as extreme a manner as possible.
The current incident follows a similar incident from the near past. Given that victims do not always report crimes, it would be foolhardy to assume these are isolated.
While emotions run high, and all sorts of lunacies are being suggested, a cold and sober view suggests that this event is a symptom of diversity failing: each group in our multiculture is competing to be on top, and when one group gets ahead of the others, retribution follows.
In that sense, this incident is as much a product of the failure of diversity as lynchings in the past. When groups are thrown into the same society, friction results, in addition to total social alienation caused by the lack of a standard of behavior specific to a group, and in the sinking sensation of unease that comes with discovering that society is not geared toward the well-being of the group to which an individual belongs.
When diversity failures appear, the following can be said loudly and clearly:
Diversity Is Over
For the last 70 years, we have attempted to make diversity work in its most liberal form, after it was nothing but a series of problems in its more restricted variety since the founding of the nation. Every attempt we have made has failed and left the problem worse than it was before.
Ann Coulter correctly identified the problem as diversity itself instead of a specific race or races:
It cannot be said often enough that the chief of staff of the United States Army, Gen. George Casey, responded to a massacre of 13 Americans in which the suspect is a Muslim by saying: “Our diversity … is a strength.”
As long as the general has brought it up: Never in recorded history has diversity been anything but a problem. Look at Ireland with its Protestant and Catholic populations, Canada with its French and English populations, Israel with its Jewish and Palestinian populations.
Or consider the warring factions in India, Sri Lanka, China, Iraq, Czechoslovakia (until it happily split up), the Balkans and Chechnya. Also look at the festering hotbeds of tribal warfare — I mean the “beautiful mosaic” — in Third World hellholes like Afghanistan, Rwanda and South Central, L.A.
“Diversity” is a difficulty to be overcome, not an advantage to be sought. True, America does a better job than most at accommodating a diverse population. We also do a better job at curing cancer and containing pollution. But no one goes around mindlessly exclaiming: “Cancer is a strength!” “Pollution is our greatest asset!”
At Amerika, we have noted this argument for some time, following up on the same argument being made on USENET in the 1990s: the problem is not blacks or whites or any other group, but diversity itself, which puts groups in conflict with one another.
Many of these texts predate Neoreaction, the Alt Right and the new Traditionalist revival of the turn of the millennium. They represent the original position taken by this author in the late 1980s through early 1990s that our problem was something like what Samuel Huntington would later write about as “the clash of civilizations,” namely that each group — ethnic, cultural, religious, class/caste, sexual — needs its own areas and control of its own future so that it can establish its own standards and direction.
While the nation boils with discontent over this latest event, which will lead to positive results for no one, it makes sense instead to go back to our most basic understand and to see that regardless of who is at fault this time, we are all at fault if we continue trying to make the defective and paradoxical policy of diversity (also called internationalism and multiculturalism) function at all.
The problem of law, government and ideology is that they always expand scope. This occurs because they are based on abstract principle as interpreted by individuals, each of whom has a vested interest in self-promoting, and the only way to do that is to expand power. For this reason, even the simplest rule soon broadens and greedily includes more and more, including things for which it was never designed.
A 14-year-old white student accused of making a racist video of a black student that was shared on social media will be prosecuted on charges of ethnic intimidation and harassment, a prosecutor said Tuesday.
…The student recorded a high school student eating chicken wings and, in narrating the piece, refers repeatedly to the black student with a racial slur and obscenity and describes him as “being broke and on welfare” and getting free food.
The black 16-year-old student was earlier accused of assaulting the white student in retaliation.
The original idea of ethnic intimidation laws was to prevent people from making threats to minorities and using those to nudge them out of public spaces. While even that was a terrible idea, as freedom of association is perhaps the most vital principle of an open and free society, the inevitable happened: lawyers and politicians, looking for a way to make a name for themselves, broadened the interpretation.
Now “ethnic intimidation” includes satire. This was never part of the original intent of the law.
In a fair press, not a Lügenpresse as we have now, we would be able to see the video and learn more facts about the interaction of these two people. For example, was racial language used against the white kid first? Was there a previous disagreement? But our lying press will not show us these, and instead will selectively mention certain facts that affirm its narrative, and nothing else.
This leaves us guessing, but so far, no “intimidation” occurred in the video; the videomaker may have expressed some dubious opinions, but nothing more than what is said in many American households of many races about many races. Would we have the same outrage if an Indian student filmed a white person and claimed they were gobbling casseroles to save up energy for scrapbooking and tax evasion?
Laws always expand scope. Today, making fun of a black kid is ethnic intimidation; tomorrow, mentioning any words or ideas that make someone of a minority or protected group nervous will also be ethnic intimidation. That means that expressing facts and analysis will be a felony. Your free speech just died, and no one seems to be mentioning it.
“We have, by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism” – President Barack Hussein Obama
So speaks a man who has profited off of the legacies of slavery, Jim Crow, idiot Klansmen, et al. like nobody else alive today in the United States of America. So he can’t be unfair and declare these people vanquished. To declare victory over the nefarious forces of ¡RASCISM! would do for his fellow Community Organizers what Uber’s driverless cars will do for the taxicab industry. There must be ¡RACISM! or there won’t be an ongoing job description.
Just how vile is the creeping white death in Amerika these days? Scott Alexander at Slate Star Codex attempts to run the Nefarious Calculus of Whitelash and tell us just how vigilant we all must be….
According to Wikipedia on KKK membership: As of 2016, the Anti-Defamation League puts total Klan membership nationwide at around 3,000, while the Southern Poverty Law Center puts it at 6,000 members total. The KKK is really small. They could all stay in the same hotel with a bunch of free rooms left over. Or put another way: the entire membership of the KKK is less than the daily readership of this blog.
If you Google “trump KKK”, you get 14.8 million results. I know that Google’s list of results numbers isn’t very accurate. Yet even if they’re inflating the numbers by 1000x, and there were only about 14,000 news articles about the supposed Trump-KKK connection this election, there are still two to three articles about a Trump-KKK connection for every single Klansman in the world.
And then there are the online crazies who admire Klansmen like President Woodrow Wilson once did. Alexander’s math gets fuzzier, but he still needs a microscope to see the extent of the organized racist cabal. “…about 50,000 poorly organized and generally dysfunctional people, many of whom are too young to vote anyway.”
Let’s say ¡RACISM! Inc. gets tepid support from moderately bigoted white people who don’t rear all the back on the Cat O’ Nine Tails when they unload the Whitelash. David Duke’s recent Senate campaign attracted 3% of the electorate (58,581 votes). If we assume Louisiana is no more and no less ¡RACIST! than your average US state, and assume about 123 million voters will show up for the election, we get just short of 3.7M people nationwide who will vote for an openly White Nationalist candidate.
In 2008, 13% of the US Electorate was African American. It went for Barack Obama by 95% to 4%. If we call this Black Nationalist vote or The Blacklash, we get a total of 12% of the electorate totaling 128 million or about 15 Million. That would be over a 4:1 ratio when comparing Black Nationalist vote to White Nationalist.
To point out the true dishonesty of this particular Obama quote, let’s examine what 2008 would have looked like if the entire Caucasian Persuasion voted WN by a ratio of 95% to 4%. Whites were 74% of the electorate, so 91% of this group would be 67% of the electorate. Out of 123 Million people, that would be in the ballpark of 82 Million. That’s what a Whitelash would look like.
So Trump, in all his vile Klannishness could motivate 3.7 Million people nationwide to vote WN. He’s getting maybe 4% of what a true Whitelash would look like. That’s low-energy, Folks. That’s not winning bigly. It would have taken 2/3 of that vote to get Trump up to parity in California. Pepe wouldn’t even consider it a legitimate frog fart. Nary a Kek would be given.
Why are WNs such scapegoats? Because they inspire the left and all of the hate that will never get written up on the $PLC Hatewatch Blog. If Amerika ever overcame slavery, Jim Crow, colonialism or the Rev. Al Sharpton having a bad hair day; ¡RACISM! Inc and the Dems who rely on it would be destined to languish between the trees. Sorry, Amerika, we $hall never overcome.
National Cuckservative Review‘s Kevin Williamson is whack. He’s just flat-out funny. You see, Keith X. Ellison, the big, bad Black Muslim moves through his nightmares like a sleek, rapacious panther. Captain Father-Führer is now upset about acceptable bigotry.
Ellison has long been a vocal defender of the so-called Nation of Islam, the bow-tie gang founded by Elijah Muhammad whose relationship to orthodox Islam is approximately that of a UFO cult to the Anglican communion. The NOI and its charismatic leader, the former calypso musician Louis Farrakhan, is an explicitly racist organization, holding as a matter of doctrine that the white race is the result of a doomed mad-science experiment conducted by the biblical Jacob while he was living on the isle of Patmos. Farrakhan is a true religious entrepreneur who has attempted to graft L. Ron Hubbard’s fanciful “Dianetics” onto his own cracked version of Islam, but he has mostly relied on a very old and reliable tradition: Jew-hating.
I’m willing to climb over the veritable Trump Wall of vile hypocrisy and accept the possible proposition that every so often it takes a turd to smell one. It was just this Spring when Kevie-Kev offered us the following observations on any place parochial enough to support a Presidential Candidate like Donald J. Trump.
The white American under-class is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul. If you want to live, get out of Garbutt.”
So having dropped his own, personal race card as a mixed-breed who gets away with acceptable bigotry, Kevin now finds it concerning in the person of Keith Ellison. Despite his utterly unintentional and phenomenally un-self-aware hypocrisy, I can’t completely blame him for being concerned. Ellison is concerning because of his proximity to power. Keith X represents a Congressional District drawn up to elect Black and only Black candidates to the House of Representatives.
It really is sad that an individual who is comfortable with others who claim Jews worked with Hitler on the Holocaust just to set up an excuse for a Jewish State is the people’s choice in any Amerikan electoral district. It is worrisome and possibly a threat to the nation that a sitting member of Congress plays footsie with The Muslim Brotherhood and it should disturb us all that this person will take a position of leadership in a powerful US political party.
What requires notice in this situation is two things.
1) CNN and all the rest are ready to issue this guy an intentional walk on this the way they all did for Senator Byrd from WV. Caping for a certain political agenda will pretty much allow you to burn the blacks or gas the Jews or stomp the honkey mofos if you champion that agenda well enough.
2) There are only certain categories of racial animus that get branded as ¡RACISM! and make all people involved throw up the Bio-Hazard warnings. This implies it can be open season on any racial diaspora no longer protected by societal and media preference. What stands between your particular race and the Rwanda-Burundi Experience is pretty much a political and rhetorical marketing strategy. In other words, calls for tolerance are smoke-screens designed to let people’s guard down.
We now reach the end of this particular Jerry Springer Episode where Jerry tells the audience what we should learn form the whole experience. Here’s what I think Jerry should tell us all.
1) While it isn’t impossible, interracial cooperation and peace is a legitimate challenge. Neither side involved is “bad.” They just come into conflict because different groups have different genetics, thus different tendencies, thus clashing self-interests. Fighting this is fighting human nature and nature itself.
2) This challenge gets harder when we are forced to pretend we all just get along, rather than recognize bigotry and racism are hard-wired human defense mechanism that date back to our collective tribal heritage as a human animal.
3) Racism either needs to be an accepted vice like drinking crappy premium beer, or it needs to be equally critiqued regardless of the perpatrator or the victim. We can’t have acceptable racisms and ¡RACISM!s. We live with it and cope or genuinely repress it. Pastor Manning lays it out below.
4) Keith X. and Kevie-Kev are disgusting because they try to have it both ways. My bigotry is !RACISM! We can either embrace reality, or pursue the white whale of ideology, but not both. Sane people accept that diversity is contrary to reality.
5) Freedom of Association is what needs to be restored in the USA. Let us have our small, dying towns of Hookworm Junction. Let Kevie-Kev hang at his favorite gay latte shop. Keith X should ascend to The Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s Mothership as soon as he can build the rocket. The closest we will ever get to racial peace in a diverse Amerika is to let everyone find a sweet home somewhere, and stop trying this “we are all one” nonsense that has brought us nothing but racial enmity and dysfunction.
