How is it possible to debate Critical Race Theory yet fail to mention its salient characteristic—that it is exclusively and ethnocidally anti-white?

Easily, if one is a Beltway conservative. They complain a lot about Critical Race Theory, and construct elaborate theories around its crass cornerstone, yet seem constitutionally or congenitally incapable of calling it what it is: anti-white agitprop.

One Federalist piece, “Critical Race Theory Is A Classic Communist Divide-And-Conquer Tactic,” brings it back to communism. Quite how this adds up is unclear, but the author decries a way of thinking that exploits the amorphous “tragedy of racial divisions in America.” In essence, some bad people with a communistic manual and mindset aren’t interested in healing us. Boohoo.

Really? Did communism, an equal-opportunity oppressor, revolve around the exclusive blackening of whites?

Western democracies are third-way political and economic systems. They are already heavily socialized. Once Western societies go from third way to third world, debate over communism will cease, for communism will have arrived.

In other words, dissecting and decrying communism is an ideological luxury, the province of relatively wealthy, stable, developed democracies.

America is indeed racially divided. Blacks, for the most, hate whites for a variety of unjust reasons, not least the incessant, institutionalized, propagandizing by other progressive whites. They want to hurt them and make them pay. For what? For everything; for whatever is wrong with their lives. Deal with this and reject it, Beltway boy. Communism is but an intellectual crutch.

By deferring to communism and identity politics, and ducking anti-white animus, the ever-quaking conservatives cloak themselves in the raiment of respectable argument.

Then there is that Uriah Heep like obsequiousness. Going by the aforementioned Federalist writer, conservatives refuse to even take credit for the “oppressive” culture for which Europeans are being berated. Ludicrously, they universalize the creed, the Protestant Ethic.

Recall the “Smithsonian display on whiteness” that condemned as “white” all elements of a civilized society, including politeness, hard work, self-reliance, logic, planning, delayed gratification, and family cohesion.

“None of those are ‘white’ values,” assures our Federalist apologist , as she criticizes Critical Race Theory for framing them as white.

Imagine being so obsequious and apologetic as to wash your hands of a really cool thing you invented, evolved or were born into: Western civilization.

Almost all these values are most pronounced in the European culture. One might even pin them down to Western Europe, because the sanctity of a man’s word, the handshake, culminating in the legally binding contract—these are some of the cultural and religious values that allowed capitalism to take off particularly well in the Anglosphere. Arguably, these are not part of the East European ethos.

Crypto-conservative Dave Rubin, of You Tube fame, also won’t say “anti-white.” Critical Race Theory is … wait for it, “racist.” Racist? Is Critical Race Theory anti-black, anti-Hispanic, anti-Asian, anti-Amerindian?

Even City Journal’s Christopher Rufo, a formidable warrior against institutionalized Critical Race Theory, still can’t bring himself to say it.

By Rufo’s definition, Critical Race Theory is “a radical ideology that advocates the overthrow of capitalism, meritocracy, and equal protection under the law.” Sure. But those base objectives are secondary to singling out whites for a punishing program of reeducation, subjugation and intimidation.

Douglas Murray is, indubitably, one of the more articulate, neoconservative second-handers, whose book, “The Strange Death of Europe,” cribs its title and theme from George Dangerfield’s 1935 “Strange Death of Liberal England.”

Across the pond, Murray finds himself wondering the streets of central London, only to be plunged into trammels of despair by “Black Lives Matter” imagery, projected over the city’s “vast screens.”

The “sinister rotation of images beaming out over London’s most famous junction” were “a horrible sight, not just for the threatening iconography, but for the profanity,” shudders Murray.

He describes the culturally atavistic attire and utterances to which we Americans have willingly habituated. Black Lives Matter imagery is, invariably, that of masked men, women and children all gesticulating and grunting in gangster grammar against “white people.”

For some reason, Murray’s Piccadilly Circus sojourn is conducive to a literary detour, in which he shows himself to be deficient in the sourcing department.

Although Murray swanks, in a tangent, about correctly attributing a quotation, he errs and must be corrected. Bear with me.

“If not us, then who? If not now, then when?” is not originally by civil rights activist John Lewis. Rather, it is a distorted riff of an ancient adage by the Jewish sage and scholar, Rabbi Hillel (110 B.C.- 10 A.D.):

If I am not for myself, who will be for me?

If I am only for myself, what am I?

And if not now, then when?

Perhaps I, as a Jew, should call that “cultural expropriation” and plagiarism.

Back on terra firma, our English effete effectively describes the culturally alien hysterical apparitions that dog him across central London.

There is “a black man wrapped in chains with a manacle around his neck and a gas mask covering most of his face.” There are “crowds of frightened people, shouting, screaming, yelling, and crying” about democracy denied.

Exported from America, Black Lives Matter “iconography” is too horrible to behold. In Murray’s context, it constitutes a cultural colonialization of London, that most English of cities.

When he comes up for air, however, Murray fizzles, meekly blaming … the media for pushing a “narrative of disunity and dissent.”

All the current crop of conservatives can muster, seemingly, is to accuse Critical Race Theory peddlers within and without the hive media and academia of preventing multicultural America from having that big group hug we all crave and know we are capable of.

Denied, the systemic war on whites will not end well. Witness my homeland of South Africa. This, Andrew Breitbart of blessed memory understood. His warrior retort to the systemic, anti-white offensive was:

“Fuck you. … WAR.” (Watch.)

  1. Good article Ilana. Linking critical race theory (CRT) to communism is not based on facts (communism is totally based on materialist philosophy, not the anti-empiricist, anti-science, & a priori nonsense of CRT). Nor is it useful: it clouds the CRT issue & sends it off down a cul-de-sac.
    Its also vital to not deflect from the fundamental truth that CRT is in its essence anti-white racism.

  2. BLM is nothing more than another arrow in the quiver of an oligarch class determined to reduce the middle- and merchant-classes to serfdom. What you describe as the virtues of Western civilisation “culminating in the legally binding contract” has morphed into an ugly system of lawfare and subjugation by contract. This handily explains why some of the most draconian COVID lockdowns currently in place are in the traditional epicentres of commercial and financial fraud, the homelands of gangster capitalism, e.g. UK and to a lesser fragmented extent the US, while actual market-oriented countries that place some value on maintaining social tranquility have taken a far lighter touch.

    Smart lady, and interesting observations. I do have to say that in actuality, I have had black americans who were some of the nicest, loyal and most helpful people to me, in very difficult situations where they did not have to offer me any sort of assistance.

    I crashed a police vehicle, mildly, and my black partner insisted on taking the squadrol to his uncle’s house (looked exactly like Sanford and Son) where they banged out the bumper with a sledgehammer and never said a word to anyone about it..
    It was not his problem – he wasn’t driving, and I am about the whitest guy you could ever find. I think the difference is he had an economic future (good paying job), and I was not viewed as a competitor to him, but was actually an ally with a common purpose in our work roles.

    In most cases the perpetrators of attacks on other races by black offenders are not coming from the general black population, its coming from the percentage that as far back as Booker T Washington, he was fretting were not suitable for integration, as they were a threat even to other blacks.

    The failure in American race relations was the brainchild of the radical repubs, who were not at all attempting to achieve a equality or fair treatment standard after the civil war, but were actually, openly, seeking to subjugate the southern white working class majority (who owned very few slaves) who they feared would functionally secede again, in a non-military fashion that was harder to quash. The goal was to overwhelm them culturally and at least for a couple generations deprive the Southern white working class of the vote.

    This led to resistance, both just and unjust, and the radical repubs did not foresee the coming massive influx of their black southern voter base into Northern cities, in large part by the element that Booker T Washington warned could not be integrated due to their conduct.

    To get along as fellow citizens you have to first and foremost have skin in the game and view one another as rising or falling together.

    The manner in which American integration efforts were handled from 1865 forward, far from being well intentioned, actually sought to pit blacks as a breaking bludgeon against political / economic enemies of elite interests.

    These bludgeoning actions not only pitted poor white southerners against radical repub-sponsored black interests, but – for example – the little river towns in Eastern IA that were once quaint and safe places to live, used black migrants solicited by large industries to break the labor movements among the descendants of those who built those cities.

    When it comes to the self-appointed champions of racial justice, they themselves are most notable for having never in any way subjected their own families to what they termed ‘integration’, which was generally used as a tool to control the average person through engineered conflict as opposed to genuine reconciliation.

    Then there is that Uriah Heep like obsequiousness. Going by the aforementioned Federalist writer, conservatives refuse to even take credit for the “oppressive” culture for which Europeans are being berated. Ludicrously, they universalize the creed, the Protestant Ethic.

    The Protestant conception of just and fair reason over-riding allegiance to established authority is the leavening agent of the modern conception of liberty. When examining why/where the system began its decline or fell into dysfunction, you can track it almost exactly to the decline in the prevalence of genuine practitioners of this principle –

    “It does me no injury for my neighbour to say there are 20 gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.”

    Complete bullshit.

    Early abolitionists — raving Christian loons for the most part — were big on integrating the schools and educating their own children with negroes even before the Civil War. You speak of the Radical Republicans, and neglect to mention that abolitionists such as Charles Sumner led them. You repeat the canard that negroes were given citizenship and the vote mainly to subjugate the South, and neglect to mention that these changes applied to the whole country. You approvingly quote Jefferson, yet it’s likely that Jefferson himself sired at least one child with Sally Hemings, his negro slave. Hemings and her children had the run of Monticello and were in effect part of his family. In modern times, there are quite a number of celebrities and politicians who have adopted negroes into their own families, of recent note among them the Christian fanatic Amy Coney Barrett. In sum, it’s clear that the current racial situation is no arch plan by shadowy conspirators. It’s primarily the result of Christian insanity, something that was sponsored every step of the way by the churches and the deforming effect of religion upon white racial consciousness.

    “My friends, I have detained you about as long as I desired to do, and I have only to say, let us discard all this quibbling about this man and the other man – this race and that race and the other race being inferior, and therefore they must be placed in an inferior position – discarding our standard that we have left us. Let us discard all these things, and united as one people throughout this land, until we shall once more stand up declaring that all men are created equal.”

    Those who refuse to confront both the realities of race in anti-Whiteness and the Jewish role in promoting anti-Whiteness for Jewish ethnic advantage are either calculatedly derailing the needed discussion or too craven to say what needs be said.

    Today’s espiode of TDS on therightstuff.biz mentioned that David Cole has claimed he received threats from militant Zionists who have a track record of violence in explaining why he’s tried to walk back his past Holocaust skepticism and criticism of Jewish overreach in Western societies.

    I’ll give credit where it’s due to principled Jews who call out their own and do the job that more timid or triangulating gentiles like those at the Federalist won’t do – Ron Unz, Ilana and Gilad Atzmon here among them.

    Zio-Supremacy achieved through a Fifth Column of weaponized non-White immigrants and native-born malcontents is not an acceptable “antidote” or alternative to the boogeyman of “White Supremacy,” which is just a straw man for the normal pre-existing sovereignty of White founding/settler populations in Europe, the Americas and South Africa.

    Before one pens a psuedo intellectual piece whose essence is-‘ ‘blecks’ are coming after you’, at least get one’s facts right. London, that most English of cities? Have you done your research? According to 2019 data, 52% of Londoners were born outside United Kingdom. Most Londoners are relaxed about it.
    Blacks, for the most, hate whites? How many ‘blecks’ have you known since you and your spouse jumped the fence on the Canadian side of the border and entered the States? From your usual hateful and ignorent comments it does not appear that you have formed close friendships with African Americans or known ‘blecks’ as work colleagues either here, in Canada, in South Africa or in Israeli, or among the myriads of other countries you have possibly lived in.
    If you had even a basic knowledge of American history you would have known that on the balance of probability and taking into account historical timescales and context, more percentage of whites hate/dislike/are suspicious of blacks than the other way round. But then being a foreigner your knowledge of American history is at best mediocre.
    You obviously hate America as it is. You came into this country by choice. Perhaps it is time you take the first available banana boat to South Africa?

    First, while poor form, I must say that any conservative woman with intelligence and guts, and lack of obesity, is sexy as hell. Always a pleasure to read if for that reason alone.

    Excellent article if for no other reason than it reveals how weak are Anglos, for whatever reason, and maybe those reasons are legitimate. I am pure Anglo Saxon and I cannot stand my people on politics (but our way of life is another matter). They are so weak. When Kavanaugh was appointed, an Irish to be sure – but close enough, I couldn’t believe people thought he would upset the apple cart. He coached girls basketball year after year. No matador of the mind could manage such an endeavor, no matter how fatherly and loving it may be. I can’t make it two seconds before holding anyone to account. The notion that I could tame my domineering mannerisms to be kind to 11 year old girls is absurd; I am there for the warriors and warriors have to learn they are nothing until such time as they are something.

    Amy Coney adopted Haitians. You think this women is going to recognize race realism. You think when something dealing within MAOA comes to the court, she is going to be willing to go home and say “yes dear daughter, your people are 10x more likely to carry the primary gene for psychopathology?” Exceptionally unlikely. You think she will recognize IQ is genetic – very, very unlikely. A massive issue in society is how we must placate our family in a myriad of ways. Jenna Bush is liberal. How must that have impacted George while in office? A ton. Jared is liberal, for sure that impacts Trump. Ivanka is a liberal to be sure, how does that impact Trump – a ton to be sure. You can’t piss-off the people with whom you rely for interpersonal connection. You cannot say about them, “you are unlikely to have the full set of genes for success in the West.” We are all so fucked.

    People do not speak up for many reasons and one reason is because they rationally fear upsetting the people within their homes or at their Thanksgiving table lest they become outcasts and their children have no extended family. Maybe that is the wrong approach but I see it. I feel it. I don’t think blaming these people is going to do any good because at least they are speaking up. David Rubin seems like a good guy. He has seen what happened to Stefan M who also seemed like a good guy. Douglass Murray seems like a good guy, one cannot blame him for not saying enough when there are many others who don’t speak up. Denise McCallister called out the guy on Twitter as being a faggot and she was promptly fired. Was she fired for hate speech or because the guy running the Federalist has to go home to his harpie wife and account for having Denise on the payroll?

  18. @Dr. Robert Morgan

    It seems that the Sally Hemings allegation has still not been conclusively proven. All that has been established is that someone in Jefferson’s bloodline fathered her children. Regardless of whether Jefferson was responsible or not, he definitely knew that miscegenation was incongruous with the well being of the Nation. He wrote that emancipation should be coupled with colonization; reasoning that an amalgamation of the races would result in a general degradation. Jefferson, Madison, Monroe (for whom Monrovia, Liberia is named) were all Southern, Slave Owners and founding members of the American Colonization Society.

    You quoted Abraham Lincoln, a plagiarist on par with Martin Luther King and Joe Biden. The man never had an original thought or idea. His mentor was Henry Clay; a Slave holding Whig, who gave the inaugural address to the A.C.S., in which he proposed “to rid our country of a useless, pernicious, if not dangerous portion of its population.” Still, had Lincoln lived, it would have been interesting to see what programs he might have pursued. James Mitchell, Commissioner of Emigration and the man who had been placed in charge of Ex-Slave colonization, maintained that Lincoln never wavered on his commitment and would have stayed the course. Former Secretary of the Navy, Gideon Welles; General Benjamin Butler; and Radical Republican Indiana Representative, George Julian, each wrote and spoke of Lincoln’s determination to link colonization with emancipation and declared that he considered the two proposals as being inseparable.

    For the record, Confederate Vice-President, Alexander Stephens, acknowledged the inferiority of the Negro and the Confederate Constitution forbid the importation of Africans. Yet, the TransAtlantic Slave Trade would carry on for another thirty three years after The War to Prevent Southern Independence had ended. Administered, as it had been from late Colonial times, by New England Shipping Firms. It is estimated that 94% of the Africans transported to the Western Hemisphere for the purposes of enslavement were taken to the Caribbean and South America, with the North American British Colonies, or United States, being a remote secondary port of call for Slaves. The primary product being brought to New England was Sugar, which was turned into Rum, which was exchanged in Africa for Slaves, who were traded for more Sugar to be turned into Rum, and so on… The increase in Negroes in the South was exponentially due more to their levels of procreation as opposed to importation. The same could not be said for the Caribbean and South American sugar plantations.

    Your attack on Christianity is akin to the accusations leveled at the Judeo-Christians. Namely, you take perversions of the faith and present them as representative of the true belief. The Northern Unitarian and Universalist Abolitionists that you cite were definitely out of step with the majority of Protestant denominations, both Northern and Southern. Their dogma did eventually seep into the mainstream, as did the Scofield Bible and its accompanying elevation of the Jew over Christ. Neither of these detract from the fact that, as a rule, Christians once knew and understood the differences in Races and Cultures, and they were well aware that Jewish people were estranged from the Savior by their own steadfast denial of him. This hasn’t changed the faith, it only proves that many of the people who lay claim to it have been misguided by the modern misinterpretations of the scriptures and the charlatans who espouse them.

    The integration that you write of is of a different variety and from an earlier era. This was more in line with the Missionary impulse to deliver Heathens from their abominable religions and convert them. The concept for Abolitionists was a Paternalistic drive to elevate the Savage by exposing them to the level of cultivation epitomized by Western civilization. This was not, and is not, the same as subjecting your children to a setting in which the Savages are providing the tutelage. This, they never did, and still decline to do today. In a, perhaps, more realistic approach, Slavery was, by many, considered to have provided the same benevolent, albeit gradual, opportunities for the advancement of the Negro as the comically cosmic-spirited, Abolitionists claimed immediate emancipation would magically endow them with. Booker T. Washington famously made that observation, as did Robert E. Lee, and other notable people who lived during the time of Slavery and Emancipation. But, if you want a really good example of how the average New Englander felt about integration, then you should read about the Prudence Crandall School in 1830’s Connecticut.

    Finally, do you not believe in any God? Why do you suppose that Men have, from the dawn of time, believed that a Deity, or Deities, were monitoring their actions and exercising judgment for or against them? This is an Ancient and Global phenomenon. Do you chalk it all up to mere superstition? And, if there is no afterlife, then why the preoccupation with good and bad? Why not live like predatory animals without moral or societal restraints? The Atheists seem to have largely emerged during the Enlightment, but didn’t really begin to gain traction until Abolitionism took root. Still, the Nineteenth Century, outside of the Cosmopolitan centers of Bohemian thought and lifestyles, was not conducive to widespread heresy. The 20th Century, with its Mass Media, brutal and bloody global conflicts filmed and broadcast, Madison Avenue Consumerism, the emphasis on Individualism over Family, Feminism taken to its Zenith, Minority Civil Rights initiatives, and the erosion of the National Quotas (which formerly regulated immigration) further distorting “the American identity,” witnessed more subversion of Christianity and traditional American values than the hundred and twenty four years preceding it did. In the 21st Century, you can produce a play about Alexander Hamilton and hire a Black Thespian to portray him, but it doesn’t make it an accurate depiction.

    Critical Race Theory is not directly a Communist concept. It is a working concept of the International Jew. Let me quote one of them.

    “A Racial Program for the 20th Century” (1912) by Israel Cohen, a British Fabian.

    “We must realize that our party’s most powerful weapon is racial tension. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races that for centuries they have been oppressed by the whites, we can move them to the program of the Communist Party. In America we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against whites, we will instill in the whites a guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to rise to prominence in every walk of life, in the professions, and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause.”

    [1] Congressman Thomas Abernathy entered this quotation into the Congressional Record.

  20. The Truth says:

    There it is! THE TRUTH! It’s the reason American white men have lost their freedoms. Rejection of that truth (and other truths). Amazing what fear can do to a man isn’t it? The truth or fear? Americans have chosen fear. The result? One world communism in a gulag. Of course, it will be called a re-education center and you will think that nothing bad will happen to you there. Just more lies that Americans will swallow while they are enslaved and starved. Accepting lies have consequences. So does taking the truth. The truth shall make you FREE!

    Your quote is fabricated, most likely by one Eustace Mullins.

  22. Cowtown Rebel: “It seems that the Sally Hemings allegation has still not been conclusively proven.”

    Sally Hemings was 3/4 white, and though a favorite of Thomas Jefferson, still a slave, and due to the 1 drop rule, still considered a negro. To think he wasn’t the father of at least one of her children seems willfully blind. Why else would she be given such special privileges as accompanying him to Paris and having the run of Monticello? Why else did Jefferson free the Hemings children upon his death, but no other of his slaves?

    Cowtown Rebel: “Still, had Lincoln lived, it would have been interesting to see what programs he might have pursued.”

    Not particularly. The most important fact, the one you carefully refrain from mentioning, is that Lincoln vehemently insisted that any “deportations” be voluntary, which meant that as a practical matter, very few were going to ever leave. We can be sure this was obvious to Lincoln, if not to the Christian abolitionists, who probably were as prone to wishful thinking then as are today’s Christians now. This is why, in his last public address, Lincoln called for citizenship and the vote to be given to negroes. He obviously expected the vast majority to remain.

    Cowtown Rebel: “The increase in Negroes in the South was exponentially due more to their levels of procreation as opposed to importation.”

    Certainly true, and all the more reason to think that the negroes would never voluntarily depart for Africa, which by the time of the Civil War, only a few of the very old ones could dimly recall.

    Cowtown Rebel: Namely, you take perversions of the faith and present them as representative of the true belief. The Northern Unitarian and Universalist Abolitionists that you cite were definitely out of step with the majority of Protestant denominations, both Northern and Southern.”

    That’s just not true. For example, Harriet Beecher Stowe, the author of the influential Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and her brother, abolitionist leader Henry Ward Beecher, were Congregationalists. Lincoln himself was raised by parents who were Baptist religious nuts. Uncle Tom’s Cabin was enormously popular in its day, outselling everything but the Bible. Abolitionists were of all religious denominations. Not just Quakers and Unitarians, but Baptists, Congregationalists, and Presbyterians too.

    You apparently are one of those Christians who thinks that most Christians are heretics, which is ridiculous. It’s the no true Scotsman fallacy.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_true_Scotsman

    Cowtown Rebel: “But, if you want a really good example of how the average New Englander felt about integration, then you should read about the Prudence Crandall School in 1830’s Connecticut.”

    Of course Crandall faced some resistance, since not everyone back then was blinded by Christian delusions, any more than they are today. But it’s important to notice that her cause ultimately triumphed. Under the spell of the Christian hallucination of racial equality, Massachusetts passed a law integrating its public schools in 1855, well before the Civil War.

    With your selective presentation of facts and omissions, I think you must be a graduate of the Jared Taylor/Tom DiLorenzo school of fake history.

    Cowtown Rebel: “Finally, do you not believe in any God? Why do you suppose that Men have, from the dawn of time, believed that a Deity, or Deities, were monitoring their actions and exercising judgment for or against them?”

    Of course I do not “believe in” any God, never having encountered one. And if I ever do encounter one, I am quite sure that it won’t be a dead Jew on a stick.

    I do believe in human stupidity though, since I have witnessed it in such abundance. And I also believe in the all-too-human childish need to feel that there is some entity in the sky that cares about them; and in their lemming-like need to conform to social expectations. From personal observation, I believe that the vast majority are driven not by truth and reason, but by their emotions.

    Cowtown Rebel: “And, if there is no afterlife, then why the preoccupation with good and bad? Why not live like predatory animals without moral or societal restraints?”

    Why not indeed? And what makes you think that people don’t live that way already? From what I can see, they employ their morality mainly as a matter of convenience. They find moral justification for what they want to do anyway.

    Cowtown Rebel: “The Atheists seem to have largely emerged during the Enlightment, but didn’t really begin to gain traction until Abolitionism took root.”

    Took root? Christian racial egalitarianism was always a strong force in America, even at the founding. Of the 13 original states, well before the Civil War five had already granted citizenship and the vote to free negroes.

    Cowtown Rebel: “The 20th Century … witnessed more subversion of Christianity and traditional American values than the hundred and twenty four years preceding it did.”

    “Traditional American values” were reflected in the outcome of the Civil War, and the country-wide grant of citizenship and the vote to negroes. That was the epitome of “traditional American values”, and the logical result of nineteenth century Christians applying their insane creed to the real world.

    Well, Dr. Morgan,

    Rather than go through the tedious, and, ultimately, fruitless process of addressing your contentions point by point, I will simply allow you to choose universal nothingness and spiritual meaninglessness over metaphysical substance and the affirmation of the Soul. That is the essence of free will. It is called Faith, because tangible evidence is not readily present.

    If you’re convinced that your existence is merely a result of biological evolution that began with an amoeba, then I cannot dissuade you from subscribing to that belief. If you deem yourself to be a soulless creature without a moral compass or a conscience, then I can pray for you, but I have no desire to prolong this discussion. I’ve done that in the past with others, and it just isn’t worth the time.

    As for a God that oversees my affairs, I can only say that I have felt not only the presence of a comforting spirit in times of deep distress, but I am wholly convinced that I have been the beneficiary of Divine Intervention on more occasions than I can count. And, I have experienced guidance in both personal and professional endeavors that I can only attribute to a preordained path that has been laid before me. Am I worthy of these blessings? Absolutely Not! Which gives me even more confidence that my Christian faith is securely placed.

  24. Cowtown Rebel: “If you deem yourself to be a soulless creature without a moral compass or a conscience …”

    LOL, not only me. It’s true of everyone, including you.

    “… I can only say that I have felt …”

    Yes, exactly! People feel the need for a God, therefore they conclude there is one. That’s the long and short of it.

    The trouble is, the people against us on this want to pick our pockets and break our legs.

    Trump included. At the first debate when he was attacking critical race theory he said that it targeted “certain people,” those certain people being white of course. In fact, Trump has never said his opponents were antiwhite, opting instead to call them “anti-American” or “anti-Israel.” Same with Tucker Carlson, another ostensible populist who can’t even say antiwhite, opting instead to always refer to antiwhite hatred as hatred based on skin color.
    The first major politician who calls something antiwhite will be vilified as a white supremacist and bigot, which means they will be a hero to the millions who know the media’s lies
