Black Iowa Professor Tries to Limit Interactions with ‘Yt People as Much as Possible’

The compassionate left insists that anti-white racism is impossible. Iowa State University professor Dr. Rita Mookerjee, who teaches sociology, gives us yet one more reason why that’s not true.

In a February Twitter post, @RitaMookjee, a.k.a. Dr. Rita Repulsa, responds to an invitation to speak on a student government “Diversity and Inclusion panel” the following month. She writes: “Lately, I try to limit my interactions with yt people as much as possible. I can’t with the self-importance and performance esp during Black History month.”

Campus Reform, which reported this story, explains that “the term ‘yt’ is often used online in place of the word “white” in conversations involving race.”

In October, she tweeted: “whyte men with dirty hair and wrinkled clothes will always be liked and higher ranked” and “Someone called me white the other day so #NewProfilePic because I think the f**k not.”

Now, pardon me for saying so, but these tweets tell me that Dr. Rita Repulsa does not like whites. And she’s not alone. Not even a little bit.

In fact, among some extremely liberal groups, we’re even seeing white people turning against white people.

After catching a glimpse of the young man behind the Boulder, Colorado, grocery store shooting in March, liberals took to Twitter to express their rage at the evil white man. Most of these tweets were quickly deleted when the shooter was identified as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, a Syrian-born Muslim.

Hemal Jhaveri, USA Today’s ironically named “Race and Inclusion” editor, was very upset after seeing that an angry white man had killed 10 innocents. In response to a tweet posted by Deadspin writer Emily Julia DiCaro, which said, “Extremely tired of people’s lives depending on whether a white man with an AR-15 is having a good day or not,” she wrote, “It’s always an angry white man. Always.” Once she realized she’d been mistaken, she promptly deleted it. I posted about this story here.

Recently, even the U.S. government has jumped on the bandwagon. The $1.9 trillion COVID relief package “offers socially disadvantaged farm owners total debt forgiveness of up to hundreds of thousands of no-strings dollars per farmer. But white men needn’t apply. … It limits aid to racial groups who faced historic discrimination.”

The New York Post’s Betsy McCaughey wrote that this measure had been proposed by Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA). He “says it will make up for years of discrimination.”

Last month, I wrote (here) about two Harvard neurologists who practice at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s hospital. They have a plan to prioritize healthcare for POC. They hope to offer “preferential care based on race.” It calls for an “antiracist agenda for medicine” based on critical race theory.

Even Canada is on board. Last month, Hamilton Public Health (Ontario) announced that “COVID-19 vaccine appointments are now available for Black and other racialized populations/people of colour.”

Although people have become more vocal about expressing their anti-white sentiment since the death of George Floyd, anti-white bias is not new.

Two years ago, Professor Philip Carl Salzman wrote an article entitled, “The War Against White People” in Minding the Campus, in which he makes the case that “anti-white hate is now mainstream American culture” and “not just by racial extremists such as Black Lives Matter.”

He described Webster University’s new “safe space” that would be offered that fall “for recovering white people to admit that they are, by virtue of being white, anti-black racists. Only whites are welcome in these meetings, where students can confess to their racism and their white privilege. Note that it is presumed that being racist is simply part of Caucasian DNA, and since “students of color” can’t be racist, they have no need to go to such meetings.”

Salzman asks, “How did we get to this place, in which hating white people, the majority of Americans, not to mention wishing them all murdered, is deemed a virtue? The answer is that our liberal democratic culture emphasizing individual freedom and equality has transitioned, particularly among university and media elites in large cities and on the coasts, to a new culture that classifies and treats people by race, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity.”

“This ‘social justice’ culture replaces the individual with census categories and ranks these categories on a hierarchy of power and a converse hierarchy of virtue. Categories are distinguished between those with power, which are oppressor categories, and those without, which are victim categories.”

Anti-white racism is not a myth. It’s real and it’s becoming too big to ignore.

Revenge of the ‘Very Liberal’ Artx Majors

If you have a degree in sociology, psychology or gender studies, it’s not my fault. This isn’t a knock on your choice. I know how it feels to waste my own money, personally carrying around a degree in philosophy. I told myself I would continue on to law school, but the new ‘lottery’ (apologies to Shirley Jackson) draft system and my amazingly low draft number altered my plans.

Imagine my surprise when reading the news today and stumbling across an article that details just exactly how I, specifically as a white person, am supposed to behave in public when visiting the newly erected shrine dedicated to George Floyd; a drug addict and thug who had a violent criminal history. I am so glad that some woke social studies major got that figured out. I just hate not knowing how to act.

What would I do if I found myself in George Floyd Square, previously known as the intersection of 38th Street and Chicago, and didn’t conform to dictated expected behaviors?

Now I can go and visit that hallowed ground and do exactly what the rioters, BLM racists and socially woke, useful idiots want me to do.

Mr. Narrator (interrupts):  “Richard Edward, stop!  You are being disrespectful to the memory of George Floyd. People are trying to build a shrine to the memory of a hero, a man who sacrificed his life on the altar of justice. Crazy Nancy said so just a couple of days ago and you know you can’t tell her she is wrong.”

Richard Edward: “What? (don’t you just hate being surprised all of the time?)  Shrine to? Social justice warrior?  I read in an article by my colleague Elizabeth Vaughn that he was high on fentanyl at the time of his arrest. He told the officers “I can’t breathe” and repeated “put me on the ground” several times before he was placed on the ground during his apprehension. You sure we’re talking about the same dude?”

Mr. Narrator: “Yes, Richard Edward. That was George Floyd in life. In death, he has been given an entirely different biography. In life, he was just another drug-addled thug in Minneapolis who resisted arrest for his latest suspected crime; but in death, he has become a civil rights icon, more than worthy of your obsequious genuflecting. The woke graduate sociology majors have declared it so.”

Wow, is there anything a liberal arts degree can’t do? Rewrite history? Dictate your behavior in public places, especially according to your race? Tell millions of your neighbors how to think and feel about current events? I never understood that the possession of a degree in social studies, sociology or any other of the ‘Liberal Artx’ would hold the answer to all of the world’s conundrums.

Mr. Narrator: “Don’t be snarky, Richard Edward. These folks are serious. White people need to be told how to act in a place of worship. Here, let me show you what is required of you if you visit.  Newsmax captured the woke folk’s instructions in a nifty little list:

White guests need to “decenter” and “come to listen, learn, mourn, and witness.”

“Remember you are here to support, not to be supported,” the sign instructs.

White people are then asked to “contribute to the energy of the space, rather than drain it.”

Any “processing” must be brought to “other white folks” so that “BIPOC” (an acronym for “Black and Indigenous people of color”) are not harmed….

Richard Edward:  “Well, that does it. I am going to plan my trip to George Floyd Square right away. But before I go, I’ll first need to decipher the social justice warriors’ instructions to ensure my behavior will be acceptable to their hall-monitors, whom I am sure will be on duty, cell phone cameras at the ready.  These instructions are so wonderfully today’s pop psychology, I am positive they were written by recent graduates from any woke, ivy league school.”

“Mr. Narrator, do you know where I can go to find out how to ‘decenter’? This is important to me. My balance isn’t as good as it used to be, so any ‘decentering’ might have significantly adverse effects on my health and ability to stand upright. If I can’t stand up right, how can I follow the rest of their instructions?”

“Support?  I love being a support. That’s something I can get right without any homework. I’ve raised and supported a family, been married four times and thus clearly understand the true meaning of support. Heck, I once single-handedly held up a section of fence until the last post was installed. I can easily go to the location of the Great Fentanyl Incident and hand-out money, along with my deepest personally sympathy, to the race grifters who will inevitably inhabit the sidewalks of said intersection.”

“Be a contributor? You bet. Didn’t I already say I’ve been married four times?”

“Keep my processing to myself or folks of my own race? (So much for reaching out to others.) I guess I can support and contribute to those in the George Floyd matrix without letting it upset me to the point where I become triggered and need to run off, screaming for my safe space. Processing? Well, I used to work in the tech industry and can understand a little about processing, so I guess I’ll be alright with that one, too.”

“I can do this trip, Mr. Narrator. I can make the hajj to George Floyd Square and prostrate myself before the alter of wokeness, asking for forgiveness for being a white, law-abiding citizen; one whose expectations used to be only to ‘treat others as I would like to be treated.’ That life approach is so passé.”

Mr. Narrator:  “Richard Edward, I knew you would get it. There is hope for you to fit somewhere towards the bottom of the new woke, world order. We are so lucky that the sociology majors of the world have shown you your path to redemption.”

If you think that having a Liberal Artx degree and a holier than thou attitude does/doesn’t give one the right to dictate other’s behavior, please make a comment and let Richard Edward and Mr. Narrator know your thoughts.

Hate Crime at Michigan College Turns Into a Hate Hoax After Black Student Admits Responsibility

Last weekend, residents of an Albion College dorm found racist and anti-Semitic graffiti had been written on several walls in the building. The graffiti included messages such as “white lives matter,” “white power,” and “666 on top of a Star of David, alongside “let’s kill all N*****.” This hate crime quickly became a hate hoax after the artist turned out to be a black student.

Via video evidence, the perpetrator was quickly identified. MLive, a local Michigan media outlet, reported that Albion police brought the 21-year-old student in for questioning. He admitted to writing the messages.

Albion Police Chief Scott Kipp told MLive that once the investigation has been completed, “the information will be submitted to the Calhoun County Prosecutor’s Office for any charges related to the incident.”

Before it was revealed that a black student was responsible for this “hate crime,” students were said to be so shaken, they hosted a campus boycott and held a march. WWMT News reported that “some students say they don’t feel safe on campus over recent racial incidents.”

Even after the student was identified, the college’s administration continued to coddle the children. They sent out a series of tweets to let them know they will heal together. The college’s faculty and staff wanted students to know they’re taking action to repair their community and that they have the student’s backs.

I tell you what. Any student who needs “healing” because somebody wrote “white lives matter” on a wall in their dorm better grow up fast because they are no longer children.

This minor incident is a microcosm of what’s taken place across America. Universities have done the country a huge disservice by brainwashing a whole generation of students into believing their woke BS. If you teach a child fear and intolerance, they will become afraid and intolerant.

Candace Owens discussed this issue recently on Fox News’ “Life Liberty and Levin.” She made the very smart recommendation that Americans should stop donating to their alma maters because we are directing funding this twisted, nefarious mindset. I think that is a brilliant idea. And that’s just the start.

Earlier today, we identified the individual responsible for the racist and anti-Semitic graffiti in Mitchell Towers. The student, who was acting alone, acknowledged their responsibility for these incidents (1/5)

They have been immediately removed from campus and placed on temporary suspension while we conduct a full investigation as part of our student judicial process. (2/5)

But we know the acts of racism that have occurred this week are not about one particular person or one particular incident. We know that there is a significant history of racial pain and trauma on campus and we are taking action to repair our community. (3/5)

We will change and heal together as a community, because we are committed to doing the work. (4/5)

Right now, we encourage all members of our community to listen, respond and care for one another, and lean on the faculty, staff, and community members who have been gathering today to make sure we are supporting you. We have your back. (5/5)

Syracuse University Professor: Maybe conservatism ‘is just a euphemism for white supremacy and … white rage’

Advertisements

Syracuse University religion professor Biko Gray was one of three panelists at an event hosted by Louisiana State University called “Race, Religion and the Moment We’re In: The Religion of White Rage.” An LSU statement said its purpose was to “shed light on the phenomenon of white rage and map out the uneasy relationship between white anxiety, religious fervor, American identity and perceived Black racial progress,” according to Campus Reform.

Gray told the group: “Maybe conservatism, away from being a financial and economic and political policy, is just a euphemism for white supremacy and its affective variant; white rage.”

Yeah, or maybe it’s just a financial and economic and political policy, Professor Gray.

I have the feeling it won’t be long before conservatism is no longer just a “euphemism” for white supremacy and white rage, but its very definition.

The event statement quoted LSU professor Stephen Finley, who was also a panelist: “Religion is a source of connection and community for many Americans; however, it is also the primary motivating factor for the rise of white rage and white supremacist sentiment in the United States. The Capitol insurrection is the latest example of this. In this episode, we will hone in on this relationship between White apprehension, race and religion, and their subsequent effects on communities of color and the struggle for equality.”

The left finds a way to make everything about race. The Capitol riot had nothing to do with race. A large majority of Trump supporters, myself included, believe that fraud may have altered the outcome of the presidential election.

LSU sociology professor Lori Martin was the third panelist.

The three professors collaborated on the book which inspired the event. It was entitled, “The Religion of White Rage: Religious Fervor, White Workers and the Myth of Black Racial Progress.” The authors claim that “white religious fervor correlates to notions of perceived white loss and perceived black progress.” They argue, “It is not economics but religion and race that stand as the primary motivating factors for the rise of white rage and white supremacist sentiment in the United States.”

Finley described Martin’s portion of the book as a “brilliant analysis of how anger functions and fluctuates figuratively in and through the bodies of White women.”

He said his own chapter addresses “what we now call ‘Karens,’ White women who called the cops on Black men in an attempt to pretty much get them killed.”

In his remarks, Gray called out Louisiana State Rep. Ray Garofalo, who had expressed concern over this event, as well as Campus Reform. He said, “here we are, three black scholars, and no matter how much tenure we get, how much money we get paid, we will always be in a situation of precocity when it comes to discourses, when it comes to this particular country. That’s white rage and we started working on this text long before Ray Garofalo knew who we were or we started getting emails from Campus Reform.”

Campus Reform reached out to LSU for a comment on this seminar. The university’s media relations director Ernie Ballard told them that events hosted by the university do not “represent an official view or statement from the university. … The overarching goal is to inform and educate students, expose them to new ideas, and teach them critical-thinking skills.”

This is how it happens. I don’t recall liberal teachers or college professors forcing their political opinions upon us when I was in school, but that was a long time ago.

By the time my children were in school, the shift had begun. Even at the junior high school level, they knew that if they wrote an essay with a liberal slant, they would receive a higher grade. It was in college where this dynamic was most apparent.

It’s been more recently, however, that the battle lines have been drawn and the subtleties have been replaced by conspicuous efforts to indoctrinate our children.

All conservative white people are racists. They are vile and contemptible because they have suppressed blacks since 1619. Last night, Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan provided a textbook example of this thinking. I posted about it here. She was making the case before her House colleagues for D.C. statehood. Of course, the real reason Democrats are fighting for D.C. statehood is because it would hand their party two extra senators, which would tilt control of the upper chamber of Congress to the left.

Tlaib immediately pulls out the race card to make her ostensible argument:

In opposing D.C. statehood … these representatives and their dark money backers over at the Heritage Foundation [a conservative think tank] — that’s right — are telling over 700,000 Americans to sit down, shut up, and enjoy this authoritarian system implemented by a bunch of elites who thought it was OK to enslave people for their selfish monetary gain hundreds of years ago. … It is shameful that anyone would claim to support democracy and freedom and oppose statehood.

Unlike white conservatives, white liberals are enlightened. Though they may suffer from some inherent racism, they atone for it by their good works on behalf of blacks.

Blacks in America are not victims. They have never had more opportunities available to them than they do today. If there is a country that is less inherently racist, where blacks may have a greater likelihood of success, I am not aware of it.

If blacks are looking for a group to blame for their perceived oppression, they should look no further than the Democrats who have used public aid as a means to maintain control over them for generations. (Please read: “Michelle Obama Gets it Terribly Wrong in Her Commencement Address and Exposes the Root of the Racial Divide.”)

These three professors need to be canceled, at once, for thrusting this misguided rubbish into our children’s classrooms.

Note: Readers, I would love to hear your comments on this topic.

Michelle Obama Gets it Terribly Wrong in Her Commencement Address and Exposes the Root of the Racial Divide

Advertisements

After reading Victor Davis Hanson’s new column in which he makes the case that “we have become an absurd society obsessed with race” which I excerpted here, I was reminded of a virtual speech delivered by former First Lady Michelle Obama to “2020 graduates.” Her words exposed the root of the racial divide. I was especially struck by her remarks because I had just watched conservative commentator Mark Levin interview Shelby Steele, a black conservative who had a much different take on racism in America today than Mrs. Obama. ( Like Hanson, Steele is also a senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.) I am reprising a post I had written at the time because the contrast between their perceptions had been so startling to me, and so revealing.

For most people, the biggest takeaway from former First Lady Michelle Obama’s virtual commencement address to the class of 2020 last June was this: “Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you’re too angry.”

Not for me. I hadn’t reached that line in her speech when she uttered something that stopped me in my tracks.

Within 90 seconds, the topic turned to race. Not only have we had to deal with the pandemic, she told graduates, “but also by the rumbling of the age-old fault lines that our country was built on. The lines of race and power that are once again so nakedly exposed for all of us to grapple with.”

With one of the most sour expressions I’ve ever seen, she said, “What’s happening now is the direct result of decades of prejudice and inequality.”

“The truth is, when it comes to all those tidy stories of hard work and self-determination that we like to tell ourselves about America,” she says as she shakes her head to indicate this is a lie, “the reality is a lot more complicated than that. Because for too many people in this country no matter how hard they work, there are structural barriers working against them that just make the road longer and rockier.”

STOP. RIGHT. THERE.

Having just watched a powerful discussion the night before between Fox News’ Mark Levin and Shelby Steele, a Senior Fellow at The Hoover Institution, about this very subject, it struck me she was perpetuating the decades old myth that stands at the center of the racial divide in America today.

This statement is the crux of the problem. By their actions and their words, Democrats have instilled in blacks the notion that they are helpless, and the odds are stacked against them. Like all of the Democrat’s lies, it’s been repeated so often, many blacks firmly believe that no matter how hard they work, the system is rigged against them, and they will never get ahead.

Now, if a parent or a mentor tells a child, continually, that even if they persevere, it will make little difference, the child will have very little incentive to do so. And if that parent or mentor takes it further and says, “But don’t worry. I’ll always make sure you have everything you need,” what little motivation the child may have had will evaporate.

The Democratic Party and black parents, for whom this message is now deeply ingrained, are creating a never-ending cycle of failure.

Shelby Steele, who is black, provided some unique insight into America’s current racial problems.

Steele came of age during the civil rights era in the 1960s and said the biggest difference between then and now is that, back then, everybody knew exactly what they wanted. “Often [it was] a piece of legislation, a civil rights bill or something else that was specific or concrete.”

He speaks of the vagueness of the current protests. “So, what is this really all about?” Steele thinks it’s about power and, “in order to pursue power, as they do, you have to have victims.”

The death of George Floyd, he told Levin, “generates such excitement among this crowd and validates their argument that America is a wretched country. It feeds this old model of operation that we’ve developed, that America is guilty of racism…and has been for four centuries and minorities are victims who are entitled.” Steele continued:

And so, when people start to talk about systemic racism built into the system, what they’re really doing is expanding their territory of entitlement. We want more. We want more…Society is responsible for us because racism is so systemic.

Well, that’s a corruption. And I know it’s a corruption. Because the truth of the matter is that blacks have never been less oppressed than they are today. Opportunity is around every corner.

Blacks, he says, are unhappy that they’re at the bottom of most socioeconomic ladders, but instead of blaming it on the police or anyone else, they need to take a look at themselves. He goes on to say:

Why don’t you take some responsibility for it? Why don’t you take more responsibility? I would be happy to look at all the usual bad guys, the police and so forth, if they have the nerve, the courage, to look at black people…and say, you’re not carrying your own weight, you’re going to go have a fit and a tantrum and demonstrations…

Are you teaching your child to read?  Are you making sure that the school down the street actually educates your child? Are you becoming educated and following a dream in your life and making things happen for yourself? Or are you saying ‘I’m a victim and I’m owed? And the entitlement is inadequate and I need to be given more and after all, you know racism has been here for 400 years…and so, it’s time for you to give to me.’

That’s an exhausted, fruitless, empty strategy to take and we’ve been on that path since the 60s and we are farther behind than we’ve ever been and we keep blaming it on racism and blaming it on the police. I’m exhausted with that.

Steele recalls growing up in the 1950s in Chicago when segregation was “fierce.” No one was taking money from the government. His father, with a third grade education, bought three ramshackle houses, rebuilt them and then rented them out. He “kept clawing his way up.” And he wasn’t unique. They were all working hard. He continued:

“They took a lot of responsibility for their lives because the government didn’t. What civil rights bill is going to replace that? What value system?,” asked Steele.

“And that is the problem. That we have allowed ourselves to be enabled in avoiding our real problems by a guilty white society. That keeps using us and exploiting us as victims,” adding that, “If you really care about how minorities do, why don’t you ask them to do it? Why don’t you ask them to drop the pretense?”

He also believes there’s always going to be some racism in every society. He noted, “My own sense is that it’s endemic to the human condition. We will always have to watch out for it…That is no excuse for us being where we are right now in American life.” Steele explains:

We have let this sort of guilty society and our grievance industry put us in this impossible position where we are a permanent underclass.

White guilt: Buying back legitimacy by exploiting minorities all over again.

‘Look, we beat you up pretty badly. You can’t make it without us…unless WE are the agent of that change. Not you us. So they take over the agency, over black development and say, if you don’t get more government money, more government programs…you will never make it. You are dependent on us and what happens? A grievance industry springs up in black America to receive all that white beneficence.

The civil rights movement does nothing but scream bloody murder at how dependent black people are on what white’s do for them.

Levin noted:

The Democrat party history in many respects is a very evil history…It was the party of the Confederacy, the party of slavery. It was the party, after the Civil War that destroyed Reconstruction. It was the party that spawned and gave birth to the Klan. The party that pushed segregation. It was the party whose members were involved in the Dred Scott decision. The Plessy v. Ferguson decision.

The party up into the 1920s that embraced the racists and the segregationists. It was the party all the way up until the Civil Rights Act, that played serious politics with the racists and the segregationists in the Jim Crowe south…Now there are exceptions.

Steele interrupted to say, “Now, it’s the party of affirmative action. There’s a symbiosis that liberalism is a part of and, where there’s sort of a mutual corruption and you see this in the Democratic Party where you have on the one hand the grievance industry blacks, and you have on the other hand the Pelosi’s of the world who want to be the agents of black uplift. We’re just sort of stuck there. And, of course as always, the group that will pay the price for this stuckness [sic], this stalemate, is blacks. We’ll get farther and farther behind.”

Mrs. Obama’s advice to graduates is to mobilize and become community organizers to bring radical change following the death of George Floyd.

But rather than protesting for more entitlements, why doesn’t she just tell them to work hard in a chosen field and break out of the cycle that continues to keep them stuck? Many blacks have found success in today’s America. The old fashioned way.

That would be a lot more empowering than telling them to go out and protest.

Victor Davis Hanson: ‘We have become an absurd society obsessed with race’

Advertisements

Victor Davis Hanson is a Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. He is a military historian, a columnist, a former classics professor, and one of the smartest conservative commentators ever.

In his latest column at American Greatness, he asks if America is (hopefully, finally) hitting woke herd immunity as two recent polls suggest. He begins:

Two recent polls suggest wokism is beginning to recede on a variety of fronts, from less trust in Black Lives Matter and more confidence in the police, to suspicion that the Capitol “insurrection” account is being used to unfairly suppress political expression while Antifa, increasingly, is seen as a terrorist organization whose violence has been ignored improperly by authorities.

There are tens of millions of Americans who either have been stung, or turned off by McCarthyite wokeness (and thus have anti-wokeness antibodies). More have been vaccinated from its latest virulent strains by their own values of judging people as individuals, not as racial or gender collectives. So lots of Americans have developed peremptory defenses against it. The result is that daily there are ever-fewer who are susceptible to the woke pandemic. And it will thus begin to fade out—even as the virus desperately seeks to mutate and go after more institutions.

Peak wokeness is nearing also because if it continued in its present incarnation, then the United States as we know it would cease to exist—in the sense that 1692-93 Salem or 1793-94 Paris could not have continued apace without destroying society. Woke leftism exists to destroy and tear down, not to unite and build. It is not designed to play down and heal racial differences, but to accentuate and capitalize on them.

Dr. Hanson says “the shark was jumped” with last week’s cancellation of Dr. Seuss books.

But what are to be the new standards of Trotskyization as we go forth? Can the Governor of New York be excused for months of policies that led to nearly 15,000 unnecessary deaths, but not for inappropriate kisses and touching of women? Or will he, as an Emmy-winning woke official, be exempt from punishment for both types of transgressions?

There are no logical standards that dictate who is and who is not canceled. For now, all we know about the rules of wokeness is that living leftists are mostly not canceled by the woke mob for the thought crimes that ruin both the non-Left or the generic dead.

There is a price to be paid for “wokeness.”

Wokeness is siphoning off billions of dollars from a productive economy through a sort of value-subtracted tax. We are spending a great deal of labor and capital for merit to be replaced in college admissions, in hiring, in grants, in publication, in the selections of awards, and in movies and videos, in everything—as racial, ethnic, and sexual identity considerations replace meritocratic, literary, artistic, and technological criteria, rather than just augment, them.

Americans also are investing lots of capital in preempting wokeness—writing/saying/acting in ways that are not productive, but simply defensive. Diversity oaths, and diversity applications, pledges, and statements take some time to read and digest. It will not be long before insurers will sell “woke insurance,” the premiums adjusted upward for those more conservative and of the wrong genealogy. It won’t be long before we all carry cards certifying that “At no time, did I say, hear, or think anything . . . .”

Our economy will soon mimic the totalitarian ones of old. Our commissars are like those of the old Red Army—ordering Soviet commanders’ counter-offensives during the Great Patriotic War to ensure that tank battalions were advancing ideologically correctly rather than just tactically or strategically soundly.

If that sounds overly dramatic to some, Dr. Hanson reminds us that at the height of the riots last May and June, then-President Donald Trump considered bringing in federal troops to maintain order. It was then that “280 former generals, admirals, and national security officials signed a letter warning that if Trump” were to do so, “he should be considered a dictatorial threat.” The letter read, “There is no role for the U.S. military in dealing with American citizens exercising their constitutional right to free speech, however uncomfortable that speech may be for some.”

Yet when Democrats insisted on bringing in 25,000 National Guard troops after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, this “group remained mute.”

No society can long exist if it believes that its own founding principles, its customs and traditions, its very origins are evil and must be erased. Tearing down statues of Abraham Lincoln, and redefining 1776 and 1787 as 1619, are many things, but one thing they are not is coherent. Trump was considered nutty when he warned that the statue topplers would go from Confederate monuments to Washington and Jefferson—and then when they did just that he was further ridiculed for being prescient.

Who were the long-dead men who devised a system whose natural and eventual fruition is what attracts indigenous people from Oaxaca, the destitute from Somalia, or the politically oppressed from Vietnam? If evil white people founded an evil system solely for their own evil purposes, why would anyone nonwhite dare risk his life to eat from the alluring fruit of the inherently long-ago poisoned tree?

If Americans are to accept that their Declaration of Independence and Constitution were frauds, abject falsifications of the real unspoken founding of 1619, then again what is to replace them? Whose statues are to rise, which books are we to be authorized to read, whose science are we to turn to?

“Everyone has feet of some clay,” Dr. Hanson reminds us. “Is there no adultery, or unkind treatment of women or plagiarism in the past of Martin Luther King, Jr? No violence or criminality in the life of Malcolm X? Did Cesar Chavez never send his goons to the border to beat back illegal aliens? Was Margaret Sanger only a sometimes advocate of eugenic abortion? Are the written biographies of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to be freed of anti-Semitism and petty corruption? Is Louis Farrakhan an ecumenical leader in the way FDR was not? Was JFK really our first feminist?”

Are we to look to those who erased our supposedly awful past for guidance?

Is it to be the architect of the 1619 Project? Long ago the ecumenical Nikole Hannah-Jones wrote that “the white race is the biggest murderer, rapist, pillager, and thief of the modern world . . . The descendants of these savage people pump drugs and guns into the Black community, pack Black people into the squalor of segregated urban ghettos and continue to be bloodsuckers in our community.”

Last summer, he points out, “Hannah-Jones bragged that, yes, it would be ‘an honor’ if the summer rioting—700 police officers injured, 40 deaths, and billions in property damages and hundreds—be called henceforth ‘the 1619 riots.'”

She also said, “Destroying property, which can be replaced, is not violence. … Any reasonable person would say we shouldn’t be destroying other people’s property, but these are not reasonable times.” He wondered if the Times considered Hannah-Jones “inflammatory?”

Moreover, he asks how we “ascertain who is and is not white or black or brown?”

Most illiberal societies in the past that tried such stigmatization of race, ethnicity, or religion did not end so well—from the Ottomans and the Third Reich to the former Yugoslavians, Rwandans, and Iraqis. One eighth, one fourth, or one half makes one a person of color—or not color? Shall we seek knowledge of one-drop of tell-tale bloodlines from the archived jurisprudence of the antebellum South?

If Peruvian George Zimmerman had only used his matronymic, and Latinized his first name, then would a Jorge Mesa have become a sympathetic character who lost a fair fight with Trayvon Martin rather than reduced by the New York Times to a strange category of “white Hispanic” hoodlum, with the additional odor of a Germanized patronymic.

Why does class bow to race, since the former seems to trump the latter. If we forget percentages for a moment, and also forget that we are individuals, not anonymous cogs of vast racial wheels, in absolute numbers, there are roughly (in some studies) more poor white people—both those earning incomes below the poverty level and those with no income at all—than all other commensurate poor minorities combined. Were these supposed to be the targets of Barack Obama’s “clingers” remarks, or Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables,” John McCain’s “crazies,” or Joe Biden’s “dregs,” “chumps,” and “Neanderthals”?

Predicating wokism on race is a tricky business, even if one could define and identify race, quantify its role in determining class status, and convince millions that it is moral to judge people by how they look.

Like the Salem witch trials and the McCarthyite hysteria, when wokism fades, we are likely to see its real catalysts revealed. And they will not be found to be misplaced idealism, nor heartfelt desire for a more ecumenical society, but mostly the age-old, narcissistic destructive road to career enhancement, fueled by customary ancient fears, envies, and hatreds.

IF SECRETARY OF DEFENSE AUSTIN WANTS TO RID AMERICA OF WHITE SUPREMACISTS – START WITH DEMOCRATS

This is a guest post written by Dr. Joel S. Holmes. It originally appeared on conservative blog AmericaOutLoud.com.

I published this article the day I launched The American Crisis. Traffic was low and it didn’t get quite the exposure it deserved. Now that the site has gained some traction, I’m running it again. It’s an extraordinary piece.

Dr. Holmes is an engineer, previously working in hydropower, antimicrobial electrochemistry, and in non-medical technology helping business and industry to achieve safer surfaces and safer air.

 He has written several books on the pandemic and also on Democrat cooperation with Russian efforts to subvert the US political process and the pandemic remediation process.

 

Light from the past, words of truth from Malcolm X:  “The white liberal is the worst enemy to America and the worst enemy to the black man.”

As Ben Carson spoke to power:  “White liberals are the most racist people there are because they put blacks in a box and insist they think only one way… and if they don’t, they attack them as illegitimate, all the while denying that their policies destroy blacks.”

I must admit that as a historian of military strategy and warfare, I have been a fan of our new Secretary of Defense, General Lloyd Austin, for many years. General Austin led the U.S. Central Command. This is the U.S. Army’s combat arm, not a desk job. His division focused on the hot spots:  Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Syria. And he had some amazing successes.

My take: Military hero General Austin, is being manipulated by white liberal political and financial forces. Political forces and financial master race groups are basically tricking him into damaging a leading organization for equality in American life: the U.S. military.

Those doing the manipulation are white liberal white supremacists.

To get to the foundation of what is occurring, we go back to the early 1940s, to the Nazi-occupied country of Hungary. It begins with the rise of Nazism in Germany in 1933 and grew like a cancer to every Nazi-occupied nation in Europe.

A brutal Nazi occupation was destroying various groups of people in Hungary, including the mass-murder of Hungarian military officers. Included in the wiping out of any possible resistance to the Nazi occupiers, Jews were stripped of their rights and property and rights of self-protection.

That Jewish property became very interesting to the Nazi civilian occupiers because confiscated property basically became theirs. Homes, cars, factories which employed thousands, suddenly became, for all practical purposes, personal property of Nazi government officials.

The destruction of the darker colored Jews, which Hitler contrasted to the blond Aryan white liberals, was rapid.

Jewish officers and soldiers in the Hungarian military were hunted and shot down immediately. Jews who owned property were next on the list of white supremacist, white liberal Germans.

A logistical problem faced the German occupiers (civilian administrators of the Nazi regime). They often could not locate all the various properties they wished to steal, particularly Jewish Hungarians, since the owners were dead or in concentration camps. And ownership documents had been destroyed as well.

Therefore, Hungary’s civilian German administrators turned to the very few Jews who would work for them. One of those Jews was a young boy named György Schwartz. Schwartz would accompany a group of German civilian officials, showing them the various estates of the dead or imprisoned Jewish Hungarians.

In an interview many years later in the United States on the 60 Minutes program, Schwartz stated that he felt empowered, like a super-being … to be doing this collaboration work with the Nazis and hiding his Jewish identity by betraying the Jews of Hungary. The interview speaks for itself and can be seen here.

Most people know György Schwartz by the name he took later, George Soros.

Why mention this? Some experts believe that the Nazi ideology, that of the master race… the Nazi methods to overthrow governments … became part of organizations founded by Mr. Soros.

I do not know if this is the case or not. Still, there is no doubt in the mind of some experts, that the propaganda and political methods of Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda, are at the center of Mr. Soro’s organizations’ activities.

This includes a master race technique, explained and taught by Joseph Goebbels: “Accuse your enemies of what you are actually doing.” In this case, it means accusing the innocent of white supremacy, while those doing the accusing are actually white supremacists (white liberals).

To step forward into this theory, we see that Mr. Soros, his family, and all high-level management in his organization are WHITE. 

There is, of course, nothing wrong with this, except if it begins to form a link with the Nazi ideology of the master race, white supremacy. The blond Aryan whites against the dark Slavic peoples. Against the dark tan and brown Jews. Against blacks in particular. Nordic whiteness was supreme in the Nazi ideology and is reflected in the makeup, structure, and beliefs of many white liberal political, business, and media organizations today in the United States.

From Silicon Valley to The Open Society (the organization of György Schwartz), there is white control, white liberal power.

What stands in their way of total control by white liberals and their master race theory?

That would be the U.S. military, which during and since the Second World War has opened an avenue of change and equal opportunity for Black Americans. The army, the U.S. military, became a great leveler, as a great way for Americans of color and various ethnicities to step into the leadership role they earned and deserved.

Therefore to achieve control and full white supremacy, that institution, the military, would have to be destroyed.

Let’s look at examples of who is behind this exactly:

Nancy Pelosi:  white, and her organization is white.
Jack Darcy:  white with white organization
Mark Zuckerberg:  white with white organization
Chuck Schumer:  white with white organization
György Schwartz:  white with white organization
Joe Biden:  white with white organization
Bill Gates:  white with white organization
Democrat Senators:  white (48 of the 50 Democrat senators are white)
Antifa, the paramilitary arm of the Democrats:  white as snow
Silicon Valley Billionaires:  white with white organizations
Marc Elias and Norman L. Eisen:  the white judicial power structure pulling strings through Nazi-like laws which they create and ram down the throat of the innocents.

The Democrat billionaire organizations and political agents are a blizzard – a blinding snowstorm of,  you guessed it – WHITE.

Malcolm X (whom I once met in Chicago as a boy – I was lost on the South Side of the city and he helped me) warned about this in his public statement:

“The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros, and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that have perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn’t taken, tricked, or deceived by the white liberal, then Negros would get together and solve our own problems.”

“I only cite these things to show you that in America, the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems. Our problems will never be solved by the white man.”

AMEN

White liberal supremacist groups target who they see as their enemies. These include, for example, the black churches. These churches empower black people. Therefore, just like the U.S. military, the churches must be castrated… the white liberal, white supremacist Democrat, and billionaire power structure can not tolerate the churches or the military, or evidently black people at all.

The abortion policy of the neo-Nazi Democrat white liberal party has murdered 20 million unborn black Americans. Let’s face the truth, neo-Nazi white supremacy is alive and well today in the Democrat billionaire and political class.

In fact, if we are looking for white supremacists today in America, the last place where we will find them is the US military. Therefore the Democrat white liberal, white supremacist power structure has decided the military has to go. And according to some experts, they intend to misuse a person I admire greatly, General Austin, as their tool.

At this point in history, the U.S. military comprises very diverse groups who all function together well and in harmony (except for sexual harassment, which must be stamped out). From a racial perspective, the military is an outstanding leader in our country for equality of opportunity, mutual respect, and multi-racial cooperation.

Therefore, the white liberal, white supremacist power structure, which is in effect a neo-Nazi movement, has decided the military has to be destroyed from within. 

And they have manipulated one of our greatest Americans to trick him into carrying out such an act. Such manipulation has occurred many times before in recent history. Nazi deception caused Joseph Stalin to execute basically all of his leading generals before Hitler’s attack by deceiving Stalin into believing that his military was a threat.

Acting at the behest of China and Iran, isn’t it possible that the white supremacist. White liberal Democrat politicians and billionaire groups are doing the same?

Let’s support our new Secretary of Defense, an American hero, for all Americans so that he will see the light. And he will be a leader to work for all Americans, against the evil forces of new Nazi master race elements in the Democrat white liberal billionaire and political power structure.

(Note: There are no suggestions in this post that anyone has committed a crime. In the United States, all people are presumed innocent until and unless proven to be guilty in a court of law. This post aims to expose the evil of master race white liberalism and unite the country to work for all Americans).
