From my review in Taki’s Magazine of Ezra Klein’s new Why We’re Polarized:

The good news, according to Klein, is that “white Christians” are being demographically inundated in what Ezra calls the Browning of America.

The bad news, according to Ezra, is that some whites have started to notice the fate that is being prepared for them, and thus they voted for Trump. Klein says that the media should try harder to mislead white Christians about demographic change so that they don’t see it coming until it’s too late for them to do anything about it:

As we navigate these sensitivities, we can do so with more or less care. [Jennifer] Richeson believes it would be wise for demographers to stop using terms like “majority-minority America”—after all, whites will still be a plurality and what good can come of framing America’s trajectory in a way that leaves the single largest group feeling maximally threatened? It sounds like “a force of nonwhite people who are coming and they are working as a coalition to overturn white people and whiteness,” Richeson says. “That’s a problem.”

Yet of course, as Ezra makes clear throughout his book, that’s not just a problem, that’s also the plan.

Ezra points out that if you simply lie to whites about what you are plotting, many of them will foolishly believe you:

Richeson’s research shows that if you can add reassurances to discussions of demographic change—telling people, for instance, that the shifts are unlikely to upend existing power or economic arrangements—the sense of threat, and the tilt toward racial and political conservatism, vanishes.

But, Klein and Professor Richeson conclude, with regret, you can’t fool all the white Christians all the time:

The problem, she admits, is “we can’t say, ‘Don’t worry, white people, you’ll be okay and you’ll get to run everything forever!’”

  1. Somewhat on topic, but as to race/demographics, the other day we were discussing how the word “complicated” is used to disguise something…this may take the cake…[emphasis added]

    “The findings on ghost DNA, published in the journal Science Advances, further complicate the picture of how Homo sapiens — or modern humans — evolved away from other human relatives. “It’s almost certainly the case that the story is incredibly complex and complicated and we have kind of these initial hints about the complexity,” says Sriram Sankararaman, a computational biologist at UCLA.”

    In other words, there’s a finding that might be embarrassing about West African (read: Black) DNA. But it’s too complex to really explain..

  2. The fact that this is working for them is utterly depressing. I think it was one of Chekhov’s characters who pointed out that being hopelessly optimistic or pessimistic is similarly paralyzing, because you assume everything will proceed along its path regardless, so you do nothing.

    So [Pete Buttigieg] was actually in the navy reserves (idk why they gave him an army uniform for his 2 week deployment) but he might as well be stolen valor. He’s what’s called a Direct Commission Limited Duty Officer. He was handed an officer rank because as an intelligence consultant working with the DoD, he asked his buddies if he could be in the military too. They handed him a commission as an intelligence officer and he went to a 2 week training course where he learned how to wear the uniform and march around a bit. He has never been through formal military training, he’s never been yelled at by a drill instructor, he’s never been CS gassed, he never had to have his bunk inspected, he never had to pass marksmanship training or any of the various written exams. There was no evaluation of his leadership potential. He was just handed the rank and pointed in the direction of the nearest navy reserve base.

    The fact that Klein epitomizes the spirit of contemporary gentry liberalism sums up exactly why they will fail in the long haul, though how much damage they can do to the USA remains a work in progress. Note very carefully that even when they grudgingly acknowledge the realities of human nature, they ostensibly don’t think it’ll, you know, pose an obstacle or something because History Bends Toward Justice And We Can’t Be Possibly Wrong. That’s a huge and depressing sign of the psychology of the new generation of aspiring managerial elites who will eventually come to full power, if left uninterrupted.

    For our increasingly geriatric elite, that’s an understandable attitude to take, whether they truly believe it or not: because if not, apres moi, le deluge works for them just OK. They continue to have a stranglehold on national wealth, after all, so why worry? But Klein is still well on the sunny side of 40. He’s going to be around for a while. This blithe attitude only makes sense if he truly believes what he says. Chances are, it is one he shares with his millieu. And Vox is no outlier: it is basically the spirit of technocratic center-progressive Obama-ite Millenialism.

    That means that when things go wrong-and they will-they’ll be taken off guard, and not know how to react…

    The real problem is that a white gentile country had its media bought up by Jews, whom behind the scenes with spy organizations like the ADL, which has been shown to have files on one million Americans, probably gets dirt on everybody rich enough to buy large media organizations to dissuade them privately from doing so, and encourages them to sell if they already own a good sized share of the collective national “bullhorn”.

    Btw……if they lie to you about being made a minority, then they will pretty much lie to you about anything, including “getting to run things” (we wont, see Obama), economic arrangements (might even see white priveledge taxes in the future, as it polls well with minorities), about nweding to get into expensive wars, false flag terrorist attacks, etc.

    I think there is a sort of pattern in US political history. Liberals push the boundaries that society is willing to accept or that society can manage effectively, and then they get an ass kicking in an election. This brings them back to their senses for a while. I think the most recent occurrences of this were 1968 and 1980.

    Ezra Klein wouldn’t have experienced this, because recent Republican wins since 2000 have been reasonably tight. I get the feeling more and more that 2020 will be Mr. Klein’s opportunity to reflect on the wisdom of his political views while staring at a bright red map of the US on CNN this November.

    And if the GOP wasn’t so radioactive on economic questions to voters on the bottom half of the socioeconomic barrel, it’d be more obvious. They’ve still won victories despite that massive, largely self-imposed millstone around their collective necks, and that’s a millstone that younger right-wingers-as negatively effected by the economic climate as everyone in their generation-seem ready to ditch.

    One thing I definitely noted about the 1970s was that liberals seemed to believe that America was ideologically with them and thus genuinely didn’t see Reagan coming. They completely misunderstood that Watergate discredited Nixon personally, and nothing more. It did not translate into an ideological shift in the populace that had elected him. It did not imply that the populace embraced their ideological views, or that the 1972 results were inaccurate or somehow manufactured. Even in 1976, this should have been apparent with Carter the Southern proto-New Dem’s political success and Reagan’s nearly successful unseating of Ford.

    That said, I always thought the fetishization and pushing of the New America stemmed from harsh memories of how the Old America rejected them at every turn. They themselves say it. What doesn’t have any explanation other than an inability to grasp human nature, or their opponents in non-caricature terms, is the thought that there inevitably wasn’t going to be any significant push-back.

  26. It’s important those White Christians who pushed for government policies like forced desegregation come to own up for their ugly past. Please remember, a traitor is far worse than any enemy.

  27. nebulafox says:

    Well, yeah, you could do that, Noah. But you are also probably going to radicalize a lot of the populace beyond recognition against you, your party, and any BizLobby Republicans who go along with this incredibly unpopular move. Things like HR 1044 today or George W. Bush’s insane 2004 CoC prompted proposals yesterday only manage to slip by in politics because of media blackouts as it is, because the powers-that-be understand darned well that if it becomes known to the general public, it’ll die.

    Obviously, it’ll be most acute among native whites not indoctrinated in SJWism, because the Democrats aren’t even bothering to hide their utter contempt for them these days and their wish for them to just go away and die already. But believe it or not, there are a fair amount of others who are not interested in the United States inviting the whole world in. You think Jorge the Houston House Painter is enthusiastic about the idea of open borders? He votes for the Democrats in spite of that, not because of it, as much as his Anglo workmate George votes GOP in spite of their economic policies, not because of them.

    The problem, she admits, is “we can’t say, ‘Don’t worry, white people, you’ll be okay and you’ll get to run everything forever!’”

    If it were just a matter of turning things over to a benevolent, equally-or-better-qualified group, I doubt most whites would be so worried. The problem is it’s not.

    Democracy plus open borders inevitably means a decline in living standards. An America run by Bloomberg as a based autocrat could manage to maintain living standards for those already here, but not one run by Bloomberg (or any other Democrat) as a woke small-d democrat.

High IQ Asians, Jews, Whites, and even the occasional African-American, are all attending the same schools, marrying each other, having children and forming a new cosmopolitan elite. It makes perfect sense for these people to disparage “pure whites” as they present the greatest threat to the dominance of the “cosmos”. Over time the cosmos will continue to suck higher IQ whites into their group, leaving “white identity” much as it already is in flyover country – meth addicted, violent, dysfunctional and increasingly indistinguishable from African-Americans.

    The Klein/Yglesias distinction kind of reminds me of the Clinton/Obama dynamic. Obama occasionally did question managerial elite orthodoxy, and he clearly understands the danger lying within the party capitulating to the nut-left. This isn’t to say they aren’t the liberal ideologues they are, but they consciously have to put in the effort every now and again to maintain the doublethink. By contrast, Hillary Clinton always reliably followed conventional wisdom to the T. That’s probably the reason she lost in 2016. Where the Clinton campaign thought they were presenting the epitome of effective, efficient competence, the voters perceived the ultimate representation of the mandarinate class that had so visibly failed in the previous couple of decades.

    Strangely enough, I don’t think Clinton and Klein are true-believers either, though. I don’t think they really have the capacity for that. They are instead the same type of people who would have been defending the Ancien regime in 1786 as much as feting Stalin in 1938 in Moscow. They are the kind that exist to justify any existing order.

The donors do not want these questions addressed, thus puppets will have no way of addressing them beyond resorting to ad hominem tactics that you can easily point out. You’ll note there’s a nice, healthy mix of populist left and right-wing concerns on the list, with a fair degree of crossover appeal in some places.

  41. @OscarWildeLoveChild

    With regard to how media Elites cloud up the agenda of their Far Left friends, it is usually by a few keyword omissions. For example just drop the words ‘Mexican’, ‘Illegal’ & ‘Uneducated’ when discussing demographic issues. Just stick with “undocumented workers” for the most sympathetic framing. What Vox journos could do to soothe & gaslight gullible Centrists is start reclassifying a % of Hispanic migrants as White to delay the date when US Whites become a minority. There’s also plenty of room for journolistic pretending that post-1965 African & Caribbean immigrants to the US are “African Americans”. They could use this trick to impute more population growth to Native/deeper rooted Citizen fertility.
    The most explicit anti-White triumphalism will remain in high school & college social science teaching, and within NGOs, various ethnic lobby groups. It will still be present in Hollywood but they may try to make it more subtle (though the antics of Lily Singh, Sarah Silverman & films such as “The Hunt” are frequent mask slips).

    C’mon, mate; only one musical outfit are better than Ezra. And their magnum opus is about precisely the loss Klein gleefully exalts:

    “‘Desperately Wanting’ is a song where someone is looking back on…childhood. Specifically that song is about when I used to camp out with my friends in the summer down in the South, and you’d stay up all night causing havoc, throwing rocks at passing cars, knocking over mailboxes and vandalizing, as red-blooded men are wont to do. And literally, you’re running all through the neighborhood and through the yards, and there’s the dew on the grass. It was about those nights spent with a friend running around, running through the wet grass. And then it’s a story of two people who took divergent paths in life. One person made a lot of bad decisions and ended up having some mental issues. And then just how you lose touch with people. And how when you’re young and you’re running around all night, and life hasn’t had its way with you, the playing field is equal and it’s flat. And then life takes everybody on their own journeys. But there’s a time where all your potential is untapped and the world hasn’t had its way with you. That’s an amazing time of promise, and that’s what ‘Desperately Wanting’ is about.”

    No more wet grass, no more suburbs, no more freedom. A lot of bad decisions indeed. I for one look forward to our future of concrete and steel and high-rises and every town an overpopulated Hong Kong from which residents can escape to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Orientals and Hindoos, as in California’s state parks, and reserve a week in a national park so long as we book it years in advance.

    I wonder what they have in common?

    I’m still deeply disturbed one of the Vindman creeps has a FUCKING Ranger tab.

    They don’t give those away.

    The real problem is that a white gentile country had its media bought up by Jews, whom behind the scenes with spy organizations like the ADL, which has been shown to have files on one million Americans, probably gets dirt on everybody rich enough to buy large media organizations to dissuade them privately from doing so, and encourages them to sell if they already own a good sized share of the collective national “bullhorn”.

    Yes, Jews are constantly on the lookout for the next ‘Henry Ford’ and go collectively to battlestations when they think they spot one.

    This is what happened to Bill Gates when he bought NBC in 1996. The biggest mistake of Gates’ life was not taking a nice Jewish wife back in 1994. It would have spared him a huge amount of trouble.

    Why is a white majority a good thing?

    We have white men running things for s good long time and look where it has gotten us.

    Even white girls prefer Men of Color

    Is that you, Tiny Johnson?

    They don’t give those away.

    That’s my point.

    How could that pudgy, pasty-faced creeper actually earn a Ranger tab?

    DOES NOT COMPUTE!

    And how when you’re young and you’re running around all night, and life hasn’t had its way with you, the playing field is equal and it’s flat. And then life takes everybody on their own journeys. But there’s a time where all your potential is untapped and the world hasn’t had its way with you. That’s an amazing time of promise

    Beautiful comment. I remember those times. Beautiful and fleeting. Youth.

    And the bad news?
    How many white people will be affected by a few inner cities being sterilized by fire?

    “visas for every Boer who wants to settle in America,”

    Do we really need to import people with a proven record of giving away their country?

    After all, it doesn’t seem to fall under the rubric of Jobs Americans wont do, does it?
