RACISM!! It’s Under Every Bed, Poisons Every Word, It’s Everywhere!
And We Are ALL Ineradicably Guilty: Columns by Ilana Mercer and Christopher DeGroot
You probably saw the headlines and the outrage—they were all over the media, including on Fox. The president had, so said most of the on-air talking heads, stepped in it big time. He had signaled out the “squad”—that group of four zealously sensitized and racially “conscious” and “woke” Democrat women in the US House of Representatives—who continually find systemic racism and white supremacy under every bed, in every workplace, in every spoken word by a white person (you know, those “dog whistles” to white extremists), and in every nook-and-cranny in America.
According to them American society is irretrievably mired, drowning in historic racism—there’s nothing you or anyone can do but acknowledge that fact, beat your breast with thousands of unending “mea culpas,” support enactment of trillions of dollars in income transfers (oops, I mean reparations), and maybe open wide the doors of every college and institution of higher education to our downtrodden black and brown brothers…even excluding qualified white students in favor of that poor black inner city gang member (or illegal “person of color” crossing the border), no matter if he’s a drug dealer, rapist or whatever. You see, he’s been oppressed by the white power structure. So, no matter if a white high schooler is a straight A student and aces his SAT, he’s just as guilty as his great-great-great granddad who may have had slaves. It’s simple social justice, you understand.
What President Trump had said was that if those four—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley—weren’t happy with what was occurring in the United States, that rather than “loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run[,] Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”
Okay, all these “woke” social justice warrior womyn are citizens of the United States, it is true. So the president’s words weren’t literally accurate. But the president’s greater point, missed by the totality of the highly-paid on camera commentariat, was, rather, that in so many situations those womyn and the near entirety of the Democratic Party now ACT like they are representing some desert Islamist terror state, rather than the citizens of the US.
His words were solemnly condemned by all those on the outraged Left, and at least downplayed (or explained away) by most Republicans (although a few of the more “morally upright” GOPers also deplored the tweet). On the Chris Wallace news Sunday program Congressman Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico denounced the president’s “racist tweet.” And Speaker Nancy Pelosi followed along saying the same thing.
The reality is that the terms “racism” and “racist” and any variations thereof have now been so overused, so misused, so cluttered and stuffed down our gullets, that like the boy who cried incessantly “wolf,” they have begun in some ways to lose their specific meaning. That is, the actual situations—very few in reality—where a white person treats another person badly and prejudicially specifically because of the other person’s race are being lost amongst a sea—an ocean—of misuse. More significantly, the terms have now become preferred political weapons used by those seeking power in our society and to replace those who now supposedly hold it.
Holy Scripture says (St. Matthew 5:13): “…if the salt have lost its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.” But in this case, that old salt—the term racism—has now been transformed into a means to subvert and destroy the traditional Western Christian culture that we have inherited and which has produced our civilization.
But like the boy who cried wolf, very possibly such extreme overuse, the overreach, may someday back fire on those who’s every other word is “racist” or “racism.”
Yet, despite that overuse and misuse, the use of these words as political and social cudgels to beat us over the head has only increased, expansively and feverishly and frenetically.
Academia and the media are doing all that they can to continue the narrative. And thousands of high school grads and freshly-minted collegians continue to be indoctrinated, ideologically, as assuredly school administrators, almost all now on the frenzied loony Left, try to prevent just what finally happened to that boy who cried wolf too often and too loudly.
One of the most salubrious and worthy things that every state legislator could do to “Make America Great Again” is to vote to terminate the contracts of nearly every public college administrator and professor and, then, after a severe vetting process, hire some of the better ones back, or maybe find others less infected by the “Hate America First” syndrome that flourishes on nearly every college campus. And, as I have written previously, on the grammar school level, we need to move as quickly as possible to disestablish and privatize our public schools.
We probably won’t hear many legislators proposing this; indeed, most Republicans and so-called “conservatives” are afraid to discuss the issue in any depth…only a few words about charter schools. But mostly they fear the yawning attacks that would come their way from the “[public] education lobby” and the media.
But, assuredly, a key, if not THE key, to this comes down to how we educate our children and how we prepare them for the future.
Today I pass on two fearless columns by two friends, both national columnists and both willing to write about what other “conservatives”—pusillanimous souls whose silence and cowardice only compounds our problems—refuse to see.
First, Ilana Mercer writes about Rachel Dolezal, remember, that white gal up in Washington State who was so “woke” about social justice and the unforgivable sin of racism, that she decided in penance that she had to become black. That was the only way out for her, her redemption, as it were. But Miss Rachel was not and is not black; she is a self-serving fraud, and her fraudulence says much about the anti-racism that infects this country.
Second, I pass on a stingingly satirical, at times caustic essay by Christopher De Groot, based on something, an incident that took place at Disneyland. In his commentary Christopher manages to take sure aim not just at the race hustlers and guilt-ridden white liberals, but also at the faux-Christians who have bowdlerized and horribly perverted traditional Christianity. That traditional Christianity was muscular and tough-minded, willing to take up the sword and declare heresy, and it has now been turned it into a loathsome and rotten porridge which wallows in silly social justice memes and sloganeering—something that not even a self-respecting agnostic would respect. And from Russell Moore among Baptists to “Il Papa Bergoglio” (AKA Francis) among Catholics that fetid “Christian” stew deserves only utter contempt, for its perversion and its effects in our society.
Driven to Blackface By Systemic Anti-White Bias
July 12, 2019
Parkgoers enjoyed a at Disneyland’s Anaheim location last weekend. It all started in extremely implausible circumstances, when a young black man felt that he and his daughter had been “disrespected,” something he warned a certain supernaturally fat black woman not to do. Ah, in vain. For she proceeded to spit in the poor man’s face, whereupon he cursed at her and punched her several times. Then another black man—presumably her baby’s daddy—got involved, gallantly slugging the other fellow.
What followed seemed like it was taken from the pages of , the disrespected man doing a kind of elaborate fighting dance while taunting his opponent with sublime pride—“What’s up?!” and “What’s happenin’, bro?!”—before he and the bro traded haymakers.
Basking in their , the white onlookers recalled from the ’80s in which blacks mock the extravagant manner in which they fight, in order to intimidate honkies. Several whites captured the melee on their iPhones, and some of the footage will be used in the upcoming documentary on the American melting pot, ....
