Critical Race Theory is the “remedial” lens through which America’s race reality is refracted.

Look hard enough and the need for this subintelligent theoretical concoction becomes abundantly clear:

It’s on the playground and in the classroom. Watch for the bossy white kids.

It’s in businesses and boardrooms, where microaggressions tumble from the mouths of their white mothers and fathers.

It’s in government departments, brought about by the few whites who haven’t been weeded out by quotas and set-asides for “oppressed” minorities.

There, this irredeemably uppity demographic persists in strutting its “oppressor stuff,” emitting up to 15 “microinequities” per minute, by the estimation of the subintelligent social “science” of human-resource department sickos.

It’s in the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), wherein workshops on intersectionality only just keep the plague of white privilege at bay, among bureau agents who haven’t yet been deluged by Trump derangement syndrome.

Critical Race Theory, reports Christopher Rufo, contributing editor at City Journal, has even reached the battle field—on a mission of mercy.

Introducing the Critical Race Theory chimera to the U.S. military falls within the mission of this vast, global welfariate. The military must keep the enemy in good mirth during the COVID lockdown.

And, there is nothing that makes swarthy Jihadis laugh harder than the idea of white soldiers—a mere 55% of the force—walking meekly. The U.S. Military might no longer know Matthew 5:5, but to the enemy, they look like they know who’ll inherit the earth. “Ha, ha.”

This Cultural Marxism of a theory is an ill-founded, purely political, symbolic figment that appeals not to empirical evidence, reason and morality, but to the roiling, base emotions of rage and resentment against anyone with a white face.

Say it! A “white” face: The words media conservatives cannot bring themselves to utter.

Not even Mr. Rufo. The aforementioned path-blazing investigator into, and crusader against, Critical Race Theory in the U.S. concludes his inquiry thus:

“Let me say it plainly: critical race theory is a toxic, pseudoscientific, and racist ideology that is taking over our public institutions—and will be weaponized against the American people.” [Emphasis added]

Yet, the only Americans Critical Race Theory targets with ethnocidal animosity are white Americans.

That’s also the main reason white women like Jessica Krug and Rachel Dolezal pretend to be black: In America, white is bad and black is beautiful.

Contra Tucker Carlson: More than they long to join the “booming racial grievance” industry—as a guest on the Fox News show contended—these pitiful poseurs want to be included in black supremacy’s mythology.

Like black Americans, these women simply want to be looked upon as carrying the heaviest historic baggage; nobler and more righteous than the rest.

The words “preordained and predetermined” are key to understanding Critical Race Theory, according to which power relationships in society are proscribed—and statically fixed for posterity.

Consequently, Critical Race Theory always inveighs against whites and for other, more exotic identities.

Over and above seeking to invert and eviscerate bourgeoisie morality—and instantiations of it like American suburbia—Critical Race Theory does away with reality.

ORDER IT NOW

For no matter how impoverished and drug-addicted white America becomes—never mind how often white men are passed over for promotions, opportunities, job placements and positions; no matter the white-hot hatred etched upon pale bodies by knockout gamers—Critical Race Theory has designated the country’s founding demographic as oppressive. Forever.

It’s as evil and atavistic as all that.

By all metrics, one of the most profound early warnings against such postmodernism was sounded by Pope John Paul II in his 1998 encyclical “Faith and Reason.” With unhectoring clarity, the Holy Father spoke, in a postmodern religious wilderness, against the errors of relativism in modern thought.

Who other than Pope John Paul, back then, had pointed to how “a legitimate plurality of positions has yielded to an undifferentiated pluralism”? And who among men of cloth had the intellectual alacrity to forewarn that inherent in the error of relativism is a rejection of the search for truth, and, with it, reason?

If we accept that all positions are equal and no one position better than the other, we have forfeited our ability to discern, and forthwith our Judeo-Christian heritage, cautioned the pontiff.

Little did John Paul know that one postmodern error—faith in a plurality of equally weighed truths—would spawn an even greater evil: Critical Race Theory, according to which there is only one immutable truth, and it is that white is evil incarnate.

Little did Pope John Paul know that in the hands of the Church’s cherished masses, Critical Race Theory would become a political power tool to exact retribution—and worse—against the pigmentally challenged.

    Good column. Critical Race Theory is a joke, and anyone that doesn’t see it for it is (white bad everyone else AWESOME!!!!!) is an even bigger joke.

    “That’s also the main reason white women like Jessica Krug and Rachel Dolezal pretend to be black: In America, white is bad and black is beautiful.” That line there … so accurate, and really shatters the lie of “White Privilege.”

  3. Great article. Racism as systemic, “genetic” fault is intellectually vacuous & morally contemptible. It should be attacked at all junctures. Its vile, insulting & infinitely damaging.

  4. VICB3 says:

    One is reminded of the story – parable I guess – of the virtuous daughter who is continually accused of and berated by her parents for being a whore. At some point, she decides that if nonetheless she if going to suffer – regardless of all contrary evidence – then she might as well live up to the accusations.

    If a White person if continually accused of genocidal racism, hounded and sanctioned – and despite all evidence to the contrary – at some point the light comes on and the decision is made to live up to the calumny. And if en masse that decision is made, a kind of zeitgeist tipping point if you please, then the various vocal (or otherwise) aggrieved ethnics will discover that they have unleashed a grim, unforgiving, vicious and potent counter force to their continual scolding, braying and criminality.

    If you keep insisting on special treatment, then eventually you’re going to get it. But special is not the same thing as beneficial. And the people beating the drum non-stop about their victimhood would do well to think about that lest they becomes victims for real when the political winds shift.

    Just a thought.

  8. Truly, you cannot keep a good man down. If this lot destroys us we deserve it for being too weak, too polite and too stupid.

    These intersectionalists are not brain surgeons. There are no heroes among them. Their ideology is not consistent. They have no nirvana they are aiming for. Best case for them is like the slaves winning the Haitian wars. Hell on earth for the victors and death for everybody else who did not manage to escape.

  9. @RodW

    If she is genuine and honest she knows the Jews, 99 percent of them, are not Semites, that there is post-Biblical history, that the Jews are not a race. So bringing up the subject of the Jews, irrelevant, would be stupid. You are mistaken in your criticism, RodW.

  10. @Realist

    Hey Ilana how about a few words on your fellow Jews that support this anti-White bullshit?

    She is actually very familiar with the agenda. Her people trashed South Africa where she was born.

  11. @Realist

    It makes sense Jews support this caste system philosophy. Their faith prioritises status over action, so the theory fits with their world view!

  12. imbroglio says:

    In defense of Rachel Dolezal:

    Whatever her motives, she worked tirelessly for the benefit of Seattle’s black community yet has suffered ignominy for it while my Senator Liz, who’s done squat for Native Americans, gets away with her ongoing fraud.

    While I’m at it, Ilana’s columns always draw the usual mush from Jew-bashing nitwits who fail to discern the ways in which they facilitate the sick joke of “critical race theory.”

    That’s the way it works, all right. Americans in particular prefer civil productivity over military conflict. (#)

    First noted example:

    Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.

    Second noted example:
    The world wars. The point here is not the wisdom of participating, but the suddenness with which the US population switched from pacifism to full support.

    The current situation, from the White perspective:
    The Whites have industrial civilization. Nobody else has it (*) and nobody else wants it (**). The Whites have tried to bribe people from other civilizations to at least tolerate industrial civilization, but the effort has bled the Whites dry (see: White Death phenomenon in the US (***)), and the bribed civilizations are now using the bribes to assault Western civilization and make it impossible. Efforts to peacefully end the assault have failed.

    The assault has reached perhaps its peak with an attempt to nullify the political processes of the currently dominant Western society, and the prospect of a new assault in 2020/11. The assault is being countered by elements of the Federal government who have the formal right to stop the assault through criminal law and the Insurrection Act. The countering elements have the support of the countryside (“hinterland”) of the cities; the assault is being mounted from the cities, which are failing financially and physically (https://www.zerohedge.com/political/smartest-money-left-nyc-decade-ago-why-jerry-james-are-both-wrong).

    Under such circumstances, a sudden reversal, as described above, is quite possible, even likely. If mounted, it would be expected to succeed. The success may be quick, or, as a worst case, may take several decades, depending on the initial gambits of both sides.

    Outcomes

    Such internecine conflicts are fairly common in Western history. All outcomes are possible.

    *If there is no outside intervention, one of the sides wins and life continues. Quite often control flip-flops between the factions. For example, Spain, royalist->military->Leftist totalitarian->??

    * If there is outside Western intervention, the intervening entity quite often simply takes control and keeps it. Example: the invasions of Italy by France, Spain, and Austria in the 1500s.

    * If the intervention is non-Western (which may happen even if there is no internal division), then it may succeed or fail. Either case involves many deaths. Examples: Greek poleis were common along much of the Silk Road in Alexander’s conquests, the part called the Seleucid Empire). These settlements were all destroyed or abandoned when attacked by horse nomads. However, the Persian attempt to annex what is now modern Greece was essentially an attempt to end endemic Greek polis rebellions along the Western coast of Anatolian, and the attempt failed spectacularly. A third, more recent example, would be the West’s attempts to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan. While not yet conclusive, the attempts appear very likely to fail.

    So: If the sides in the US can manage to avoid foreign intervention, things should be over fairly quickly, a decade or so. If not, we could get three decades of conflict, possibly more. Also, please consider that, absent US expeditionary force capability and given evacuation of overseas foreign bases, one would expect the rest of the world to be occupied in local disputes that will reduce trade, leading to an important drop in world productivity, but quite possibly reducing attempts at intvervention within the United States. One might expect a continuation of bribery, but no actual expeditionary force.

    Footnotes:

    #) Note that the US military interventions have all been accompanied by reassurances that the average American would be at peace and that “The soldiers fight so you don’t have to.” Feminism regards military service as a good career move, nothing more. That is a dishonest government / political faction trying to game American civil productivity to support government directed warfare.

    *) Neither India nor China regards an internal competitive economy as a good. India is apparently content to sell cheap labor to foreigners, and China apparently regards industry as a capability that can be used to extend China’s political influence. Japan has set up something remarkably similar to the Shogunate, and appears happy with that. Japan is not innovating, and in fact never intended to — back in the 1980s I remember reading about a Japanese state of the art research center entirely devoted to looking for Western inventions to develop.

    **) The complaint “White Supremacy” actually means “industrial society”. Consider this news item today: https://www.zerohedge.com/political/watch-what-white-privilege-looks-according-some
    The objection of the Black person was that she would have to do something to make it possible for the airplane to fly safely. This is as basic a rejection of industrial society as you can get.
    Objections vary. Generally, Blacks are largely disqualified by “g factor”, East Asians because industrial civilization cannot be static, South Asians for “g factor” and the inability of industrial civilization to support caste or caste-like distinctions.
    The demands for an end to “White Supremacy” are really demands for an end to an industrial society that the BIPOC do not want. It is doubtful that Whites will abandon industrial society. Hence, a serious conflict, an intense stasis. “Stasis” originally meant a statemented civil war (***), and the West has been in gradually intensifying stasis since at least AD 1960.

    Race-realism and critical race theory are two different things.

    We can recognize that Jews as a group (racial/ethnic, cultural and/or religious) are anti-White while recognizing that outliers exist. Ron Unz does a pretty good job of aggregating their work here.

    You have to be willfully blind (more like fence-trained) to disregard the vast over-representation of Jews in anti-White movements and organizations in America and worldwide.

    As for Dolezal, she’s a tragic example of what happens when your missionary parents commit to negrolatry. Young Rachel’s household was full of numinous negroes doted on by her parents. In order to get her share of affection and attention, she identified as Black – pretty simple.

    The solution to “identity politics” for Whites is recognizing and embracing White identity, not colorblind civic nationalism that leaves only Whites without tribe or identity amid a dozen ethnic groups who are armed with and aware of theirs.

    screed on critical race theory and the word ‘jew’ doesn’t appear once.

    Maybe that’s because Mercer is actually intelligent and sticks to real issues, whereas every dumbass tries to blame his own failures on others, and because said dumbasses lack brains, they get stuck on using skin colour and suchlike obvious visual clues to define the “enemy”. Does Dumbass realise lashing out at Jews is morally and intellectually taking part in this so-called ‘critical race theory’ nonsense?
    Maybe Dumbass must reflect on how to improve himself to the point of aiding in the survival of his own group, rather than get stuck on childish dumbass toddler politics? What is Dumbass doing to improve things, other than blaming Blacks and Jews and, wait for it… any White person that does not participate in Dumbass’ particular brand of It-Is-Them-ism?
    …and to be fair, this site has numerous articles digging into Zion’s participation in the dumbassing of White people. Maybe we should “respect Jews more” and stop calling them White?

    Don’t you think that maybe that’s exactly what our enemies want us to do? It means fighting the war they want to fight on a battleground of their choosing, according to their rules. Sounds to me like a recipe for defeat.

    Also, “white identity” is essentially meaningless. Whites have never had a “white identity” – they have had various ethnic, cultural, national and religious identities that were organic and meaningful, based on shared histories and shared cultures. White identity is vague and meaningless and has no emotional resonance for anybody. The only people interested in white identity are a handful of far rightists. It’s not something that is ever going to be embraced by the average person. It’s too artificial and too abstract.

    only difference being you are attempting

    to make amends for your reckless, anti-White youth

    Given how destructive identity politics has been I cannot understand why anyone would think that the answer is – more identity politics.

    Encouraging more identity politics only makes sense if your objective is the complete destruction of society.

    Of course there are people on the far right whose objective really is the complete destruction of society (the accelerationists, the crazies who actually want civil war, the “let’s burn it all to the ground” brigade etc).

    Critical Race Theory is a joke, and anyone that doesn’t see it for it is (white bad everyone else AWESOME!!!!!) is an even bigger joke.

    Absolutely!

    And what makes it such a joke is that its theory is presented as the truth. When, in fact, not only is it not the truth, it isn’t even a theory.

    Critical Race Theory is the “remedial” lens through which America’s race reality is refracted.

    This is one of the best sentences ever written, I submit, on the Inverted World of CRT.

    Because it lays bare the insanity of demanding that a complex reality be placed under the iron paw of an infantile “theory.”

    One thing’s for sure. This insanity isn’t going to stop itself.

  25. This same crap was being taught in Weimar Germany some eighty five plus years ago. When the National Socialist Regime came to power in the early nineteen thirties, the Frankfurt School was forced to leave Germany and seek refuge in, shall we say, more salubrious grounds in the U.S. And they did their work well here, finding many disciples and dupes.

  26. RodW says:

    You’re wrong there. I have friends from the UK, many parts of the US and Canada, and several European countries, and we all share a common understanding of whiteness. We share an understanding of who the enemy is. We use dog whistles to discover our own, and we keep mental maps of where our allies are.
