What really jumped out at me reading up on the Tunnel of Oppression phenomenon was that it seems to appeal most to the most fly-overish colleges imaginable: Boise State, Wichita State, Texas Tech, Indiana, Southern Illinois, Northern Illinois, Western Illinois, and so forth.
You might think that the Tunnel of Oppression would appeal to coastal elitists, but I can’t find any evidence that Harvard, Yale, or Princeton have ever touched the Tunnel of Oppression with a ten-foot pole.
You might think that ultra-liberal Brown U. would host the Tunnel of Oppression, but a Google search reveals only that it was set up in the Brown Ballroom at Illinois State. Similarly, the Tunnel of Oppression has been at Penn State, but not at Ivy League Penn.
In the San Francisco Bay area, the Tunnel of Oppression has been hosted at San Jose State, Santa Clara, and Cal State East Bay, but not, as far as I can tell, at Berkeley or Stanford.
I wasn’t alone in noticing a similar pattern in market brands on display at commercial breaks during the Super Bowl:
With one exception mentioned below, the anti-white messaging from these giants was devoid of subtlety. T-Mobile was the worst offender. This wasn’t merely the worst commercial I saw last night, it was the worst commercial I’ve ever seen in my life:
Unlike T-Mobile, Coke mercifully adds some visual distractions to allow the viewer, with enough effort, to distinguish this experience from the mandatory meeting he sat through with the scold from HR last Tuesday:
Catch that black liberation flash at the end? Nice touch. And, it must be admitted, rather subtle.
Comment sections are becoming endangered species on the dinosaur reservations. They’re disabled for the T-Mobile video, but they’re not on the one from Coke. As of this posting, we’re at 262 likes to 617 dislikes, with commenters validating for umpteenth time the veracity of John Derbyshire’s observational riff off Orwell’s 1984: If there is hope, it lies in the comment threads.
Toyota did the best job illustrating Jack Donovan’s concept of an empire of nothing:
Reverend Loveboy eagerly dipping out of the empty nave to collect the rest of the Coexist bumper sticker so all the false teachers can participate in what really fills their lives with meaning. That is not, of course, their kin nor the temple of their gods–it’s the mindless consumerism of sportsball!
We may find encouragement beyond the guerrillas in the comment fields, though. There were a couple notable examples of whitelash against the dispossession. By far the aesthetic best came from Dodge:
With the exception of one valkyrie vixen, they’re all high-T, Nordic men. Not a hint of mystery meat from start to Finnish.
Runner-up came from WeatherTech:
Solid white men laying concrete and forging steel, flanked by a closing caption that reads “we built our new factory right here in America. Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be?”
