From Foreign Policy:

The End of an Era … for White Males

As demographics change, so does the definition of privilege.

BY DAVID ROTHKOPF

JANUARY 25, 2016

White men have had a great run. From the rise of the Greeks to the birth of Western-based global empires, they have controlled much of the world or sought to: So much of history is a consequence of decisions made by—and at the behest of—the white guys in charge.

Several factors are contributing to making this historic moment a watershed in global history. First, there is the rise of the emerging world, notably the economies and societies of Asia. While the planet has always been home to great nonwhite civilizations, such societies have ebbed and flowed in relative importance. Today, it is clear that these emerging societies, namely China and India, are on the rise. So too—thanks to economic and political reforms, technological and scientific progress, and the advent of the connected world—are other great and rich cultures from the Middle East to Africa.

Granted, millions of Middle Easterners and Africans are trying to paddle away from their great and rich cultures in life rafts so they can live in the realm of White Male Privilege, but they’re still great and rich cultures …

In addition, millennia of repression of women’s rights are coming to an end. Not fast enough. And not everywhere. But in much of the Western world, once male-dominated domains are now populated by more women than ever before, and this trend shows no signs of reversing—thankfully.

Except in neighborhoods in Europe where all those refugees from the great and rich cultures are moving in …

Not only that, but around the world women are empowering other females, including girls, to lead in technological fields in the Digital Age.

White men in technological fields, of course, haven’t done anything to empower girls …

Quite simply: It now seems to be common sense that no society can thrive if it fails to tap the intellectual, economic, creative, and spiritual resources of its entire population.

It’s common sense everywhere, except in non-White Male Privilege societies, but who is counting …

Finally, thanks to the mobility revolution of the past century, flows of refugees and migrants of all kinds have shifted the demographics of societies and—protests and unease aside—they have proved essential to fighting the demographic trends, such as aging, that have put many advanced societies at risk.

Everybody knows societies are at risk from their own old people, not from military age young male invaders …

Inequality, injustice, and, frankly, fatigue have led populations to seek other choices. Further, the societies that have given the white man his greatest influence in the world—those of Europe and the United States—are struggling in key respects to maintain their global influence. Economic pressures weigh on them. Political divisions are a drag on their growth and ability to act. As history has illustrated, it’s hard to stay on top for an indefinite period.

The result is that the status quo of the past several millennia is going to undergo a profound change. In Europe alone, the influx of migrants and refugees is already producing irreversible demographic shifts—a great blending of cultures.

But by mid-century in the United States, the former majority population will be a minority: The majority, according to demographers, will be nonwhite. By that time, Europe will include massive populations from Africa and the Middle East, as well as Asia. This is to say that by 2050 white men will be the ones checking the “other” box on census forms.

In fact, it is this idea of “otherness” that is going to undergo the greatest change. A current subject of hot debate, such othering has been used by some as a tool for fear-mongering against migrants, immigrants, and refugees—an approach linked, of course, to nothing but ignorance and intolerance.

Nothing, I tell you, nothing … nothing

(Attacks on America’s first black president had similar origins and took on a similarly ugly tone.) Whether the threat is one associated with Islam or extremism or simply economic competition within a country, the reality is that the expressed fears are way out of proportion with the actual, manifested threats.

A shrink I knew once said that if a reaction is out of proportion with its alleged cause, then there’s a piece of the story that has been omitted. In this case, the politicians in America and Europe who spew nationalist bile and fan the flames of anti-immigrant furor are tapping into a growing if unconscious cultural recognition that time is running out on what has been the world’s most privileged ethnic class.

Of course, human mobility is not something to be fought, but rather something to be embraced. While belonging to a community is wired into our DNA for reasons linked to the survival-based social units of our most ancient ancestors, the story of civilization and progress has been one about the blending and reblending of those units.

There are two key lessons here. The first is that, given the fact that civilization is a safer, happier, healthier, richer, wiser place today than it has ever been, the sharing of ideas and values and cultures, it seems, has actually been for the better. For the United States, this is illustrated in its history: Since the early 19th century, new groups have entered the country and have been resented and resisted—the Irish, Italians, Eastern Europeans, Jews, you name it. Yet over time each group has made huge contributions to the United States, a country that only grew stronger with each wave of new blood and new ideas.

The second key lesson is that there is an alternative to “other” and that is “all.” Rather than focusing on our differences as the smallest and most dangerous of our political leaders have done, the real leaders for this new era will distinguish themselves by focusing not just on the social diversity that makes great nations, but on the truth and wondrous benefits of the diversity that actually lives within us all.

As the nationalists, white supremacists, and idiot hordes who follow them have sown seeds of division in the wake of new human flows across borders, the tragic irony has been that they, in fact, have ended up embracing precisely the same kind of intolerance that is the stock in trade of their avowed enemies.

What we need instead are those who will stand up and say, “No. You have it wrong. Diversity is not the threat. It is the answer.” That is, in fact, what has made America and every diverse society great. To be sure, we should not—not for one minute—lament the passing of the white-male era, for there is at least a glimmer of hope that soon to come is the era of “all.”

The Era of “All” will start Real Soon Now, perhaps as President Reagan told the U.N. in 1987, the moment the invading flying saucers begin their war of conquest of us Earthlings …

By the way, who is David Rothkopf?

CEO and Editor
Washington, DC

David J. Rothkopf is CEO and editor of the FP Group, where he oversees all editorial, publishing, events, and other operations of the company, which publishes Foreign Policy magazine. He is also the President and CEO of Garten Rothkopf, an international advisory company specializing in global political risk, energy, resource, technology and emerging markets issues based in Washington, D.C.

David is the author of numerous internationally acclaimed books, including Power, Inc., Superclass, and Running the World. His most recent book, National Insecurity: American Leadership in an Age of Fear, was published in the fall of 2014. He writes a weekly column for foreignpolicy.com, and is a frequent contributor to leading newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Financial Times, CNN, Newsweek, Time, and many others. He is also the host of The Editor’s Roundtable (The E.R.) podcast, a weekly program that triages the big issues of the day, and has appeared as a TED Talk speaker about how fear drives American politics.

Additionally, David is a visiting scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, chairman of the National Strategic Investment Dialogue and serves or has served as a member of the advisory boards of the Center for Global Development, the Center for the Study of the Presidency, the U.S. Institute of Peace, and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Previously David served as CEO of Intellibridge Corporation, Managing Director of Kissinger Associates and as both U.S. Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade and as Acting Under Secretary in which capacity he directed the activities of the 2,400 person International Trade Administration during the Clinton Administration. He has taught international affairs at Columbia University’s Graduate School of International and Public Affairs, the Georgetown School of Foreign Service and has lectured at leading universities including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Princeton, Oxford, Cambridge, Stanford, the National Defense University and the Naval War College.

The Era of White Male Privilege still seems to be going strong in David’s career. Too bad about you younger fellows …

By the way, I wouldn’t completely rule out that this piece by Rothkopf, who after all is editor of a magazine founded by the late Samuel Huntington, is a parody of the conventional wisdom. But how could you tell?

  1. “White men have had a great run. From the rise of the Greeks to the birth of Western-based global empires, they have controlled much of the world…”

    Deliberate deception. White men didn’t “control” merely much of the world, as if they were kids playing with remote control cars. They built/invented/designed much of the world. There’s a difference and it’s all the difference in the world.

    I’d have a less difficult time with his overall premise if he could at least be honest with his wording. This reminds me of the phrase “male-dominated,” which is the feminist way of sidestepping the truth: That it really means “male-created.”

    He who controls words controls thought. Calling people like this on their deliberate sleight-of-hand when it comes to descriptions is important. “Controlled” is not the right word to use and if he didn’t know better then some editor, somewhere, should have piped up.

    The irony, of course, is he gets to communicate this on technology built by white men in a country where the idea of freedom of speech was made into law by white men. And if white men “control” anything, he might look to that to ask why.

    (I’m choosing only to focus on his opening sentence. I know well there are a lot more questionable ideas here.)

I suppose the reason why every other “prestige” press organs and think tanks reads so similar is because behind them are individuals in much the same vein.

  11. It’s hard for even intellectuals like Mr. Rothkopf to remember that historical trends don’t necessarily continue unabated. There are cycles, and pendulum swings.

    And this elides key differences between the US and Western Europe versus previous top dogs:

    Further, the societies that have given the white man his greatest influence in the world—those of Europe and the United States—are struggling in key respects to maintain their global influence. Economic pressures weigh on them. Political divisions are a drag on their growth and ability to act. As history has illustrated, it’s hard to stay on top for an indefinite period.

    History has illustrated that, usually, those on top stay there until someone else knocks them off. E.g., Alexander The Great conquers the Persian Empire. In the case of Europe and the US, there’s no one in the non-western world strong enough to knock them off. The current mass migration into Europe is the result of a population surplus in those countries, which in turn is a result of Western advances in agriculture, medicine, sanitation, etc.

    Fences really aren’t beyond the technology of the West, as the rest of the world may discover soon. The alternative may be the sort of street violence Houellebecq anticipated in Submission.

  12. This narrative that whites have “controlled the world” for millennia needs to be opposed with facts. The global white empires only began around 1450 with the explorations of the Portuguese. Before that whites did not in any sense control Africa or Asia, and of course had no presence (bar a handful of Vikings) in the Americas.

    And of course there were long periods of white contraction. For example, the retreat before the initial waves of Islamic expansion.

  14. I love David Rothkopf’s CV. He’s such an insider that he makes George Bush Sr. look like the Unabomber.

    Totally OT but encouraging news on how you can’t keep a good stale, pale male down:
    Brendan Eich has just kicked off a project to build a new web browser that might totally shake up the world of online advertising and the media. The Brave browser project was launched only about two weeks ago so it’s got a long way to go. Still, it could shake up Google’s revenue model over time.

  15. If you could go back in time and obliterate a small swath of the inhabitants of the earth’s surface, at around 1600 AD, on a swath from GB, to France, to Germany, to Poland and perhaps also to Moscow, there would be no modern world. Bordering areas included.

    The scientific and the industrial revolutions were centered in those areas. Capitalism was invented there. Every military in the world today looks and acts like the military model invented there.

    Its not a matter of fashion that businessmen everywhere in the world look like Western men in a suit and tie. Or that solders everywhere look more like British turn of the century solders than samurai. Or that researchers look like German university researchers. Most of the great polyphonic music of the world would not exist. The Japanese would have no 9th to determine the playing time of the CD they invented. There might not even be perspective in painting. If you included present day Italy in the swath, perhaps monogamy, a Romain institution adopted by early Christians I am told, would be rare.

    No modern world. A totally different planet if perhaps 20% of the surface area was obliterated by a meter or something in the past.

  21. But in much of the Western world, once male-dominated domains are now populated by more women than ever before, and this trend shows no signs of reversing—thankfully.

    The Era of White Male Privilege still seems to be going strong in David’s career. Too bad about you younger fellows …

    I can’t tell you how many senior lawyers who’ve made very distinguished careers but never had to compete against female lawyers have told me how wonderful it is that there are so many women in the law now.

    Not only is this attitude hypocritical, it is fundamentally selfish (as are all anti-traditionalists): It is the equivalent of saying, I was given something wonderful, I was initiated into a learned profession and into the particular customs of my firm or bar or chambers or inn of court, and I took that gift, that inheritance that was handed down to me, and I unalterably changed it and remade it and have given you, my successors and followers, something else, something different, something other. It’s so wonderful–though of course I didn’t experience it–but I know you’ll like it.

    The benefits of diversity and “non-othering” are so “wondrous” that Israel has chosen to generously allocate its diversity quota to white nations. At the same time Jews agitate endless for dilution of white countries.

    Even if one agreed with the political orientation of the article, life’s too short simply to read regurgitations of the conventional wisdom. Let’s be thankful we have the decidedly unconventional Mr Sailer to read as an alternative to FP (and the rest of the MSM).

  35. As a white male It is hard not to be embarrassed by our actions. You get to the point where you almost want to change your skin color so you can show how much you care about issues of race, how much you care about the overt hatred and vitriolic discrimination of the past and today. Of course, you can’t change your skin color, but you can be an ally to those who are marginalized in our society. You be an ally by working to dismantle the unearned privilege we white guys have enjoyed for so long.

    Me and my partner both teach in public high schools. We teach the atrocities of this country. We encourage interracial dating and try to steer the white girls in our class to date black boys. Being a homosexual I know sort of what it is one to be hated. Hopefully white men will be out of power and the country can move forward.

White Americans should take anti-white distopian prognostications like this as a challenge to organize for their self preservation. There are hundreds of Jewish organizations and dozens of Hispanic and African American groups in the US. There are countless Christian groups.

    The Tribe clusters around 108 IQ (if you only include the smartest sub-tribe), so the first conclusion doesn’t seem particularly viable.

    And yet Bibi wouldn’t lift a finger for Trump. “Distanced himself,” actually. I bet I could go into a West Bank “settlement” (Jewish colony) and ask Jews if Whites should be allowed to have for themselves what Jews have for themselves in Israel and they’d say “no.”

  42. “Previously David served as CEO of Intellibridge Corporation, Managing Director of Kissinger Associates. . . . ”

    I believe L. Paul Bremmer also served as Managing Director of Kissinger Associates. He also served as Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq. In that role, Bremmer made two horrendous decisions: (1) he disbanded the Iraqi army and (2) he issued a decree banning all former members of the Baath Party from playing any role in the new Iraqi state. Those decisions were made either because L. Paul Bremmer was incredibly stupid or they were done deliberately in order to sabotage the new Iraq and guarantee that it could not become a functioning country for a long time. Thus, he was either incompetent or corrupt. Hardly a good advertisement for Kissinger Associates.

    Of course, Henry Kissinger himself endorsed the Iraq War of 2003 (unlike his former associate Brent Scowcroft, who came out in strong opposition to the war). In 2011, he acknowledged the war was a mistake, but he blamed his decision to support the war on “bad intelligence.” Now, I didn’t graduate summa cum laude from Harvard like Henry Kissinger and do not consider myself as smart as Henry Kissinger or as knowledgeable about foreign affairs, but I was able to scope out that we were being sold a pig in a poke by reading the NY Times and WS Journal and watching network TV news on NBC, with no access to intelligence reports. If I could have figured it out, I am certain that Kissinger could have figured it out. So, it seems that Henry Kissinger was either incredibly stupid in 2003 or incredibly corrupt.

    Adding all these examples together, one has to conclude that hiring Kissinger Associates would not give you good advice unless you are looking for ways to do harm to the interests of the U.S.

  43. OT Steve: Any thoughts about the passing of Marvin Minsky?

    It strikes me that Minsky, a bald Jewish brainiac nerd, could have found a wife and created a family with her like a regular guy. An equivalent young man now, just starting out in life, would find himself undateable young women’s current standards. He would probably wind up like those 40-year-old male virgins and incels in Silicon Valley.

    The fact that Minsky and other unattractive men in his generation could pair up with wives and father children with them, when similar men can’t seem to cross those barriers now, suggests that feminism has damaged our society in some unanticipated ways.

    Wow, that’s pretty rare to hear one of the special people says. So unlike Tim Wise who rejoices for that coming day.

    So Rothkopf is lamenting that whites will be passing one day. He actually cares about the demise of his fellow whites….how very white of him.

    The first racialist argument that ever appealed to me was when David Duke, of all people, was on Montel Williams or something 15 years ago advocating for his organization NO FEAR – the National Organization for European American Rights. It did seem a clever argument, but it’s so obviously motivated by white racialism that the zeitgeist has yet to accommodate the renaming.

  67. It’s amazing how promise-of-diversity boosting has become so shrill, desperate, as if white-goy haters like Rothkopf realize their window of opportunity is fast-disappearing. The noble project to flood the evil West with very vibrant, colorfully throwback cultures of Gimmestan is crashing on rough shoals of reality. Let’s not forget Rothkopf, a dynamic if somewhat ethnocentric thinker himself, pushed hard for deposing Syria’s regime in 2013, only to be undone by an American public finally on to Israel Lobby strategies. Out of obvious commitment to democracy, he counseled then, as sun set on this brainstorm, that bold Presidents of the past knocked will of the people in a cocked hat and did what they pleased.

  75. Rothkopf and Michael Oren (American born Israeli military officer and former ambassador to USA) were roommates at Columbia University.

    Rothkopf visited Israel for the first time a few years ago. Rothkopf and Oren then exchanged letters regarding Zionism and Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians. Rothkopf was critical in his analysis of Israel but did not declare Israel as an apartheid state.

    I used to read Rothkopf before “Foreign Policy” was behind a pay wall. Rothkopf hold his most serious hate for white Christians, especially Catholics and most especially German speaking Catholics.

    This was back when Pope Benedict held St. Peter’s throne. Rothkopf hated his guts.

    Some white nationalists already do that, although they use “White” capitalized, rather than “European” or “European American”. “White” and “Whites” capitalized seem to be preferred to “European” and “European American”. David Duke is one of the few white nationalists who seems to use “European-American” regularly.

  87. “Quite simply: It now seems to be common sense that no society can thrive if it fails to tap the intellectual, economic, creative, and spiritual resources of its entire population.”

    “Finally, thanks to the mobility revolution of the past century, flows of refugees and migrants of all kinds have shifted the demographics of societies and—protests and unease aside—they have proved essential to fighting the demographic trends, such as aging, that have put many advanced societies at risk.”

    So… in order for society to THRIVE, all women along with all men must work, work, and work in the New Economy. But that means fewer women get married and have kids.

    And so they can’t survive as a people…

    And that means the thriving society has to take in tons of migrants from non-thriving societies that are not so economically maximized.

    What does this mean? If ALL societies want to THRIVE, they must become like the West where women would rather work than be mothers.
    But then, ALL societies would begin to age and fail to produce enough kids. Then, all of humanity would die off.

    So, in order for a thriving economy to survive, they must rely on non-thriving societies. In that case, it would be bad if all societies were thriving since they would all face birth dearths and wouldn’t be able to take in surplus people from other nations.

    Btw, Jews keep saying that European nations(and Japan) need to rely on immigrants in order to survive. But survive as what and as whom?
    If Japanese population goes from 100 million to 50 million, it is still Japan. But if Japan fills the lost 50 million with 50 million Hindus or Africans, it is no longer Japan.
    A nation is more than numbers. Japan is not defined by the number of 100 million. Japan is defined by JAPANESE whether they be 1o million, 20 million, 50 million, or 100 million.

    What kind of an idiot defines nationhood by numbers? Suppose a massive earthquake kills half the Japanese. So, if Japan no longer Japan since it no longer has, say, 100 million? Will Japan be Japan once again if brings over 50 million Turks? Hey, it’s Japan again since it’s up to 100 million!!

    What kind of logic is that?

    Now, if the West is facing declining numbers, the obvious solution should be more men should be fathers, and more women should be mothers. White people should have more kids and grow up instead of acting like perpetual kids addicted to videogames or TV shows.

    But Rothkopft says NOOOOOOOO. Why, the economy would fail unless all women worked like ants. It is the only way to THRIVE.
    But choosing to THRIVE, the nation cannot SURVIVE.
    Solution? Bring in tons of people from nations that don’t thrive.

    Isn’t there a midpoint between the Thrive mode and Survive mode?
    According to Rothkopft, apparently not. The West must fully go into thrive mode, and women must work and work and work. If that undermines the survive mode of the people? Bring in tons of people from the Third World and face racial-cultural displacement, but then, don’t worry about such things since a nation should only be defined by numbers(population figures), GDP, and libertarian ‘right’ to consume like a pig.

    By the way, what kind of an idiot believes that bringing in tons of Third Worlders will do wonders for the economy? How many people really think that boatloads of ‘refugees’ from Africa will do wonders for the European economy? How is Sweden faring so far with all those Somali morons?

    Of course, Rothkopf is not an idiot. He is a weasel. The idiots are white people are smart but not smart enough to see through the vile lies of scum like this.
    He just wants to weaken the unity of white European nations.

    In other words, a certain level of civil discomfort and small-scale terrorist attacks are to be expected and tolerated as the mohammedan, Asian, and Hispanic populations in formerly White lands increase. The continued deracination of traditionally European countries–including the United States–is much more important, multitudes more even, than the physical safety and security of those country’s present inhabitants.

  95. A fun exercise:

    (1) Rothkopf lists ethnic groups: “the Irish, Italians, Eastern Europeans, Jews … each group has made huge contributions to the United States”

    (2) Then in his bio he lists the elite institutions he’s affiliated with.

    The fun part: look for a match between lists 1 and 2. Painfully few of his favorite institutions were created by his favorite ethnics. “Huge contributions?” I don’t see it.

    Examples,
    -Foreign Policy: founded by Samuel P. Huntington [English ancestry] while a professor at Harvard [founded by Englishmen]
    -Carnegie Endowment: Scottish-American
    -Columbia University: Englishmen
    -New York Times: British-Americans
    -Princeton University: Scots

    Compared to America’s early British population, no ethnic group (and I include my own) has really built all that much in this country. And Rothkopf tacitly admits this in his own status-obsessed bio.

    It could be argued that the “first civilized Greeks” weren’t Greeks at all. The Minoans, who established a pretty sophisticated “civilization” on the island of Crete and were long thought to be mythical until a little over 100 years ago, are thought by experts to be a Semitic people, related perhaps to the Phoenicians. They rid the Aegean Sea of pirates, they had a written language (Linear A, determined to be non-Greek), and had a marvelous art that was like nothing like that the Greeks ultimately produced (and more akin to Picasso and the later Matisse).

    Note: The reason the GOPe is warming to working with Trump is because Trump is not actually opposed to the political program outlined in this Rothkopf article.

    Christianity is not mentioned by Rothkopf. If it were than the modern era Trump would have a beef. But Rothkopf keeps the war strictly against white men. So Trumpism can work within this framework.

    -Trump likes affirmative action. Trump justice dept won’t deviate from Obama’s on the disparity issue.

    -Trump does not equate strong borders with better wages and opportunities for the white working class. He’ll accept white male support in the election but there is no real solidarity with white men as a whole. Trumps wants a strong border to keep the nation as a whole from being “ripped off”.

    There are many other points that back this up but let’s just boil it down to Trump = Putin on the issue of race and identity. Both men want to rule over multiracial societies where there is no genuine concern for whites becoming just another minority voice in a sprawling chaotic empire.

  113. The smarter Jews realize that a white, gentile, Christian America is the best hing that’s happened to the tribe since the end of the Babylonian exile.

    That’s good to hear because Evangelicals love Israel more than life itself. And even if they articles like this the religious background of its writer would never dawn on them unless someone else pointed it out.

  115. Finally, thanks to the mobility revolution of the past century, flows of refugees and migrants of all kinds have shifted the demographics of societies and—protests and unease aside—they have proved essential to fighting the demographic trends, such as aging, that have put many advanced societies at risk.

    He didn’t have to use the word “thanks”, but he did. He’s dancing on our collective grave.

    In fact, it is this idea of “otherness” that is going to undergo the greatest change. A current subject of hot debate, such othering has been used by some as a tool for fear-mongering against migrants, immigrants, and refugees—an approach linked, of course, to nothing but ignorance and intolerance.

    He just told us they’ll be wiping us off the face of the earth, and now he pretends that resisting genocide is “ignorance” and “intolerance”? Lord knows our primary problem is that we’re not good enough at “othering”, as Rothkopf’s piece makes plain.

    David Rothkopf:

    “…has appeared as a TED Talk speaker about how fear drives American politics.”

    Aren’t you get kind of tired of what seems to be a popular new line of argument? “You must be taking that position because you are afraid, unlike me, therefore you are wrong.”

    Great argument! But of course, it’s not about the logic of the argument. Just sort of the emotive words the soundbite kicks off. “Oh, yes, thankfully the talking head has pointed out that they are ignorant, fearful, illiterate, uneducated morons, unlike us enlighted ones! No need to think about it too much when you can feel righteous!”

    “… Managing Director of Kissinger Associates…”

    This Kissinger Associates?

    “…run by Henry Kissinger and Brent Scowcroft.

    …advising clients on government relations throughout the world. Known for its secrecy, its specific activities are not public knowledge. …

    Prominent staff have included:

    …L. Paul Bremer, former managing director. Former Iraq Director of Reconstruction. …

    …Lawrence Eagleburger, former United States Secretary of State

    …Richard W. Fisher – President, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

    …Timothy F. Geithner – United States Secretary of Treasury

    …Jami Miscik – President and vice chairman. Deputy Director for Intelligence, Central Intelligence Agency

    …Joshua Cooper Ramo – Managing Director, former senior editor of Time Magazine

    …Bill Richardson, former Senior managing director. Former U.S diplomat and immediate past Governor of New Mexico

    …William E. Simon, from 1984. Secretary of the Treasury under Nixon, Ford…

    …reportedly bars clients from acknowledging the relationship

    Ah, I see, just another bunch of poor non-whites trying to make it in the evil white-man’s world, hopefully awaiting the coming of the All when all the fearfully trembling bullying mean-old no-good whites have been vanquished and they can surreptitiously rule the world and wring out ever last tax dollar *@!#*&&*&%$#@^*^&$ embrace all the uplifting noble souls the world has to offer.

    Well done. Steve’s philosophy needs more publicity, and social media (the coin of the realm) seems not to be his greatest interest. Those of us more inclined need to get the message out, and hopefully give him and his wife the lifestyle they richly deserve.

  120. There are many other points that back this up but let’s just boil it down to Trump = Putin on the issue of race and identity. Both men want to rule over multiracial societies where there is no genuine concern for whites becoming just another minority voice in a sprawling chaotic empire.

    I think not. Trump is as close to Coulter’s Adios America as you can come. But, justly, he acknowledges that American blacks have an entitlement to certain of our economy’s benefits because they were brought here as slaves and can’t function in a post-labor economy. They’re here, they’re more founding-stock than most of Steve’s commenters, and they’re entitled to America’s bounty.

  124. Rothkopf is a former US “Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade Policy and Development” for the Clinton administration. A proud Obama supporter says:


    White majority countries are being globally removed. This is diversity, not in the sense of there being different ethnic groups around the globe, because we are actually removing a major demographic group, but from the perspective of the historically white nations, things will be ethnically and demographically different.

    Any who resist this global ethnic demographic transition are “idiots” and should be shamed. The elites are making sure to eliminate any major political representation of such people.

    We should celebrate, not mourn, the end of whites and white males in particular.

    wtf?!? This is a white male elite leader, a senior US federal government administrator.

    “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

    Notice how when people drew silly cartoons of Mohammed there are multiple organized Islamic death squads ruthlessly assassinated those involved with broad support of the Western Muslim population and even some sympathy from white Western leaders. This concluded in censorship by the sword or gun. Yet, this guy is calling for the ethnic extermination of whites and white political structures and whites are too kind to challenge his freedom of speech or even say bad words to him.

  128. This narrative that whites have “controlled the world” for millennia needs to be opposed with facts. The global white empires only began around 1450 with the explorations of the Portuguese. Before that whites did not in any sense control Africa or Asia, and of course had no presence (bar a handful of Vikings) in the Americas.

    You’re leaving out the important fact that “white” control of the world usually coincides with Jewish interests. As Jews jumped from Spain to Portugal to the Netherlands to England, overseas influence did the same.

  132. Dan Greenfield (Israeli) edges close to it, but always backs away to maintain his status on a neocon organization payroll. It’s unnerving to admit that your community (Jews) depends upon the approval of others (the West, Russia, Iran), that even nukes can’t guarantee. If the security of Jews and Israel depends upon the active existence of right-wing Christians, it causes tremendous theological quandaries for the religiously observant. In with Gospel, out with Talmud. Bridge too far for many…

  133. There is no doubt that some of the best minds on our side are Jews. My guess is about 20 percent of American Jews probably side with the majority opinion of this blog. But I have no hard stats to back it up.

    The problem is that it seems most, if not all, organized Jewish groups are for open borders and such. Additionally most, if not all, high profile Jews and the ones who pony up the big bucks during election time are for open borders as well. So rightly or wrongly this does lead to the perception that Jews in the collective sense are pro open borders, even though we realize there are some great exceptions.

  134. I can’t tell you how many senior lawyers who’ve made very distinguished careers but never had to compete against female lawyers have told me how wonderful it is that there are so many women in the law now.

    Not only is this attitude hypocritical, it is fundamentally selfish (as are all anti-traditionalists): It is the equivalent of saying, I was given something wonderful, I was initiated into a learned profession and into the particular customs of my firm or bar or chambers or inn of court, and I took that gift, that inheritance that was handed down to me, and I unalterably changed it and remade it and have given you, my successors and followers, something else, something different, something other.

    I don’t understand. Are you saying the senior lawyers are glad they can sleep with lawyers instead of secretaries now (like that judge out in ____ County who divorced his wife and married the law-school grad 30 years his junior? Your comment was really oblique. Regardless, female lawyers are terrible in every way, and you almost never see them if you’re doing anything difficult. They can’t and generally don’t try to litigate, and God help them if they try!

    The exact definition of [the white] “race” has changed over time, as successive waves of immigrants (Germans in the 18th century, Irish in the 19th, Italians and Jews in the late 19th and early 20th) worked to be included in the privileged category.

    That may still work for Mormons and Seventh Day Adventists, but I don’t think it does for non-Orthodox Jews. A large percentage of young secular/Reform/Conservative/Reconstructionist Jewish women aren’t interested in marriage. And of the non-Orthodox groups, only Conservative Jews would still show strong preference for marrying other Jews if they did decide to marry. Many Reform rabbis will now perform intermarriages, and secular Jews may not care if a rabbi is involved at all. These are my observations as a never-married non-Orthodox Jewish guy in his late thirties.

    They can’t do to Trump what the French establishment did to Le Pen.

    Why not? Even if Trump wins everything up to and including Super Tuesday, if they gang up to leave only one guy opposing Trump (Rubio or Kasich), then it’s rather likely that Trump will end up with not enough delegates for a nomination. Cruz would have to partake in the conspiracy, of course.

    You people are clueless if you think AA means descendants of negro slaves.

    Modern AA regime can cover most every type of person in the USA who is not a white male.

    Subcontinent Indians, Somalis, pale whitey white Spaniards, etc. all get in line ahead of Casper Whitebread.

    But East Asians are indeed a wildcard.

    Trump is not for negro slave descendant AA only. He is for the broad leftist interpretation. Same as the gay marriage issue. The big dumb broad left wing government policy blanket works for Trump.
