From The Atlantic:

The Mantra of White Supremacy

The idea that anti-racist is a code word for “anti-white” is the claim of avowed extremists.

By Ibram X. Kendi

NOVEMBER 30, 2021, 7 AM ET

About the author: Ibram X. Kendi is a contributing writer at The Atlantic and the Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities and the director of the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research. He is the author of several books, including the National Book Award–winning Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America and How to Be an Antiracist.

Below a democratic donkey, the Fox News graphic read anti-white mania. It flanked Tucker Carlson’s face and overtook it in size. It was unmistakable. Which was the point.

The segment aired on June 25—the height of the manic attack on, and redefinition of, critical race theory, which Carlson has repeatedly cast as “anti-white.” It was one of his most incendiary segments of the year. “The question is, and this is the question we should be meditating on, day in and day out, is how do we get out of this vortex, the cycle, before it’s too late?” Carlson asked. “How do we save this country before we become Rwanda?”

Some white Americans have been led to fear that they could be massacred like the Tutsis of Rwanda. crt=marxism, marxism→genocide every time, read a sign at a June 23 Proud Boys demonstration in Miami. Other white Americans have been led to fear America’s teachers—79 percent of whom are white—instructing “kids to identify in racial terms,” as Blake Masters, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Arizona, said in May. “You are good or bad, depending on what you look like. At this point it is straight up anti-white racism. I don’t think we’re allowed to say that. But let’s call it what it is.”

Even when GOP politicians and operatives don’t openly “call it what it is,” they end up echoing Masters nonetheless, saying without saying that “critical race theory is explicitly anti-white,” to use the words of Christopher F. Rufo, a travel-documentary filmmaker turned leading critic of CRT. At his final campaign rally, in Loudoun County, Virginia, Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin said, “What we won’t do is teach our children to view everything through a lens of race where we divide them into buckets and one group is an oppressor and the other is a victim and we pit them against each other and we steal their dreams.”

Republicans provoked a backlash against CRT, which they also call anti-racism or wokism. Their backlash won 2021 elections. “But it wasn’t a backlash of parents,” William Saletan found in his close study of polling data. “It was a backlash of white people.”

What could be more racist than white voters disapproving of other white people’s children being forced to endure taxpayer-funded anti-white indoctrination?

How many Americans know that the claim that anti-racism is harmful to white people is one of the basic mantras of white-supremacist ideology? Americans are familiar with white-supremacist movements like the Klan, skinheads, neo-Nazis, and the Proud Boys. But they don’t seem to recognize white-supremacist ideology—the most venomous form of racist ideology.

And what do you do when you encounter a venomous snake?

I suspect that many Americans don’t know how much white-supremacist ideology shapes their political thought and America’s political discourse, and allows juries to exonerate racism and convict anti-racism.

With his anti-white mania graphic, Tucker Carlson yet again presented the most dangerous mantra in American politics: Attacks on racism are really attacks on white Americans that lead to white people being harmed. “Anti-racism is anti-white” is the old and explosive mantra of avowed white supremacists. It has been their organizing vehicle, fueling their rage, fueling their backlashes, fueling their delusions.

After all, according to Prof. Dr. Kendi, “anti-racism” isn’t “anti-white,” it’s just a demand for perpetual discrimination against whites. As Dr. Prof. Kendi says, “The only remedy to racist discrimination is antiracist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination. The only remedy to present discrimination is future discrimination.” As anyone could tell you, discriminating against whites and their descendants on the basis of their white race isn’t anti-white for reasons TKA.

All year long, this white-supremacist mantra has been fueling what Martin Luther King Jr. once called the “white backlash” against last year’s racial reckoning. … It is inciting the false claim that anti-racist books and education are harmful to white children.

When, obviously, it’s good for white children to be taught young their position (subordinate) in the Kendiist America they are growing up in, which will have no room for any uppitiness from whites.

“Anti-racism is anti-white” is the mantra dividing the Democratic Party, especially since the 2021 elections. It is the mantra unifying the Republican Party, especially since the 2020 election. There are numerous variations on this mantra. “Wokeism” or anti-racism or critical race theory or the 1619 Project or “cancel culture” or Black Lives Matter or anyone challenging racial inequity is said to be anti-white or racist or an anti-white racist. And variations on this mantra have become so ubiquitous in the American political discourse that people can easily dismiss or deny its origin in white-supremacist thought. …

Allen J. Ellender, the Jim Crow segregationist and senator from Louisiana, framed the Voting Rights Act of 1965 as “discrimination … being practiced to wipe out discrimination.” In a televised presidential-campaign speech in 1976, Ronald Reagan said, “If you happen to belong to an ethnic group not recognized by the federal government as entitled to special treatment, you are a victim of reverse discrimination.” In 1995, Senator Phil Gramm of Texas said, “You cannot give somebody preference over somebody else without discriminating against the person who is not receiving the preference.” Or, as Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in 2009, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”

For five decades since the civil-rights movement, Republicans (and many non-Republicans) have expressed two conflicting racial mantras: (1) racism no longer exists, and (2) racism is spreading against white people. Since Joe Biden’s election, this second mantra has overtaken the first.

… White supremacists probably fear revenge, retaliation, the tables turning—as they wipe the blood of democracy, of equality, of the dying and dead off their hands. Like the enslavers of old sleeping with guns under their pillows, they know the level of brutality they have leveled against people of color and their white allies. They probably can’t imagine that Indigenous anti-racists just want their land back and aren’t genocidal; that Black anti-racists just want reparations and don’t want to enslave; that Asian anti-racists just want to be visible and don’t want to render white people invisible; that Latino and Middle Eastern anti-racists just want to flee violence and don’t want to invade predominantly white nations.

They just want your land, money, culture, and country, not your lives.

White supremacists are mobilizing against an anti-white army that isn’t mobilizing, that isn’t coming, that isn’t there.

Of course, considering the innate evilness of whiteness, that wouldn’t be unreasonable either:

Then again, if there is an army that is mobilizing, that is coming, that is here—it is made up of white supremacists. Their carnage is here. …

Seriously, Kendi should simply explain to whites that they don’t have to worry about genocide because it would be silly for the Woke to kill the white geese that lay the golden eggs, that all the hate rhetoric directed at whites is merely a mercenary ploy to bully them into allowing their wealth to be expropriated. The people running and funding the Great Awokening are not bloodthirsty savages, they are instead materialistic careerists like Kendi who have found that anti-white defamation is a clever way to boost their incomes and the Democratic Party’s prospects.

Sure, an occasional Waukesha SUV will take the reams of anti-white defamation a little too seriously, but, in the big picture, Radio Kendi will never broadcast the code message, “Chop down the white trees.” What would be the profit in that?

Indeed, when you put it that way, the “white genocide” rhetoric sounds pretty silly.

Of course, the Kendi Krew isn’t ever going to put it that way because that would give the game away. Instead, they will continue to rant that whites getting concerned about the ever increasing anti-white hate rhetoric in, say, The Atlantic just proves how hateful whites are and thus deserve what they have coming to them.

    Australia and New Zealand are laboratories for the Great Reset. Some have speculated that New Zealand is so far advanced into the bio-security state paradigm because a lot of the World's richest people have their bug-out homes there. They want to make sure that it is secure for the owners.

    From Steve's excerpts, I appreciate Dr. Professor Ibram X. Kendi PhD's article in the Atlantic. He lays out his opponents' arguments, and then demolishes them one by one. It's nice to see a leading Public Anti-Intellectual adopt the structure of Enlightenment discourse.

    There must be some Atlantic subscribers in my circle of acquaintances, but I don't know who they are. I wouldn't initiate a conversation touching on social or political issues with such a person, and I'd be unlikely to respond to an opening, either -- how would I know if the outcome would be discussion or cancellation?

    More than half of the words that Kendi stuffs in my mouth are more-or-less reflective of what I've come to think. That's not a bad batting average. I'm pleased that his rebuttals are both sincere and stupid. Some readers who haven't finished drinking the Kool-Aid may start to wonder about the ideology they've signed up for.

    A quibble:


    Republicans provoked a backlash against CRT, which they also call anti-racism or wokism.
     
    I'd rephrase that as, "Establishment Republicans opportunistically joined the grassroots backlash against CRT," but whatever.

    And, which working-class or middle-class or Flyover Country whites call CRT "anti-racism"? We call it "anti-white racism." There's a difference.

  5. In Kendi World whites have two choices – Extinction or Enslavement.

    Naturally, the enslavement will be permanent, like their hoped for utopia, which is really a dystopia, but not for Kendi, et al. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, he and his Woke Inc. enablers at The Atlantic haven’t really thought this one through.

    Their attempt to impose a social order free of control and sustained by force has only increased the uncontrolled exercise of naked power. And its exactly that force – constantly applied – that undermines the social institutions their power controls.

    The results are as disastrous as they are ubiquitous – Cultural Stagnation, Cultural Impoverishment and Societal Collapse. Good luck getting blood from that stone.

    Steve continues to believe this is all about money so whites shouldn't worry about it too much, outside of the fear of losing some of their stuff.

    To Steve, this is all just a big grift and the con man isn't going to hurt the mark out of fear of losing the source of his money.

    Steve is fooling himself.

    They hate us and want us dead.

    Ultimately, this isn't about the money - though the other side does enjoy it much as an army sacking the city of a hated foe enjoyed their booty. It's about hatred of whites and the desire to see us dead or subjugated.

    According to information in the copyright records, the picture was originally shot in 16mm. No exact release date for the film has been found.
    As noted in the opening credits, Mau Mau was shot on location in Kenya, British East Africa. The sequences supposedly depicting a Mau Mau massacre, which prominently feature shots of naked women, were filmed in Hollywood and added after the documentary was completed. According to a July 14, 1955 report in the film’s file in that MPAA/PCA Motion Picture Association of America/Production Code Administration) Collection at the AMPAS (Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences) Library, after the Hollywood footage was inserted, Joe Rock Productions withdrew its request for a PCA certificate. The Los Angeles Times review referred to the massacre scenes as “lurid bits of staged actions,” and the Los Angeles Examiner critic called them “ludicrous and excessively gory.”
    A modern source states that the footage was added at the request of exploitation distributor Dan Sonney, who felt that the picture was not sensational enough. In 2001, Mau Mau Sex Sex, a documentary about Sonney and his partner, David F. Friedman, was released. The documentary describes their methods and the many exploitation films they produced and distributed.

  11. Radio Kendi will never broadcast the code message, “Chop down the white trees.” What would be the profit in that?

    Besides the financial profit, there is this. What is most satisfying for radio Kendi is if the white trees still stand, but the trees are miserable, beaten-down, afraid, compliant, and resentful. And to the extent that their stuff has not been taken away, there are no longer any pleasant things they can do with their stuff.

    Jacqueline Avant, Wife Of Music Executive Clarence Avant, Found Shot To Death In Beverly Hills Home Invasion

    BEVERLY HILLS (CBSLA) — Jacqueline Avant, the wife of music executive Clarence Avant, was shot to death Wednesday in an apparent home invasion in Beverly Hills.

    Beverly Hills police say a shooting at the 1100 block of Maytor Place was called in at 2:23 a.m. Wednesday. When officers arrived, they found a woman with a gunshot wound, and there were no suspects at the scene.

    Avant was the wife of 90-year-old music executive Clarence Avant and mother-in-law of Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos. Clarence Avant, who was not injured in the shooting, is known as the “Godfather of Black Music” who worked with the likes of Louis Armstrong, the SOS Band, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Babyface.

    Clarence Avant and a security guard were present at the time of the shooting, but they were not hurt, Stainbrook said…

  16. How anti-racism leads to anti-white racism:

    – The left’s most important issue is racial inequality.

    The most important question to them is therefore: “What is the cause of racial inequality?”

    They reject the possibility of genetic or cultural differences leading to minorities doing worse.

    The only remaining alternative is to scapegoat white people. For every issue, for every way minorities do worse, the problem is always white people.

    When you scapegoat a group of people over and over, that psychologically conditions hatred of that group, hatred of whites.

    When that scapegoating involves matters of life and death, such as with BLM, it becomes blood libel of whites.

    In the history of the world, no one has ever created a society where people of all different backgrounds achieve at the same level. But only whites are blamed for this.

  17. William Saletan. Now that’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time. He’s the fellow who wrote about racial differences in Slate or Salon about ten or so years ago, pulling his information right out of J. Phillipe Rushton. The mob screamed for his blood, the editor stepped in and slapped his hand (As if the editor had nothing to do with the article being published), and Saletan apologized profusely.
    I figured that it was an attempt to awaken the more thoughtful Slate/Salon readers to racial realities before they got bit on the ass, with the reprimand and the apology written before the offensive article was even published. Saletan knows the score whether he admits it or not.

    Giving a million dollars to every black family will necessarily entail taking a quarter-million from every white family. That will certainly feel like slavery.

    Anyway, reparations have been going on for some time now, from Louis Vuitton boutiques to Bill Cosby’s hotel rooms to Waukesha’s white supremacist Christmas parade.

    Nah, they’re importing the smarter third-worlders as fast as they can too. Note our burgeoning class of subcontinental woke grifters. Hell, teeming Nigeria alone has tens of millions of people with an IQ over 130. And it isn’t that things have to run well, just run well enough.

    So what does it look like if and when whites become negative tax contributors? When technology–that we unleashed on the world–has made us useless even as a source of brute labor? When this happens as we watch the unworthy of the world take over, loot and wreck our institutions? As they gloat over it all, building a new anti-white national myth? At that point white America becomes nothing but a potential threat to them, even if we don’t start producing genuine terrorist violence.

    According to Lynn and Becker the avereage IQ of Nigeria is below 75 IQ. Suppose Igbos have an IQ of 115, the same as the Ashkenazi population. Since this group makes up 20% of Nigeria's population of 210 million, it is easy to calculate with a normal distribution calculator that there are not seven million above 130 IQ. However, if the Igbos are like Ashkenazi, the average IQ of Nigeria's remaining population of 170 million would be around 52 IQs - of which about two persons above 130 IQs are to be expected.

    Indeed, when you put it that way, the “white genocide” rhetoric sounds pretty silly.

    Does it? This is all now guided by rational behavior? And we can presume whites will continue to be the "Golden Goose" in perpetuity?
    At some point in the progress of white wealth depletion whites will become a liability for those people appropriating their wealth.

    Do you think they're going to need whites to run things, again, in perpetuity? Why? (I think that was Charlie Manson's take.)
    Nah, they're importing the smarter third-worlders as fast as they can too. Note our burgeoning class of subcontinental woke grifters. Hell, teeming Nigeria alone has tens of millions of people with an IQ over 130. And it isn't that things have to run well, just run well enough.

    So what does it look like if and when whites become negative tax contributors? When technology--that we unleashed on the world--has made us useless even as a source of brute labor? When this happens as we watch the unworthy of the world take over, loot and wreck our institutions? As they gloat over it all, building a new anti-white national myth? At that point white America becomes nothing but a potential threat to them, even if we don't start producing genuine terrorist violence.

    Indeed, siccing the FBI on "white supremacist terrorism" is them anticipating and acting preemptively on this threat--nipping it in the bud.

    “Hell, teeming Nigeria alone has tens of millions of people with an IQ over 130.”

    That would mean at least 20 million Nigerians have a near genius IQ.

    That’s about 10 percent.

    Nigeria would be a lot more developed if this were the case.

    My quibbling aside, your point stands. However, I think the primary sources of these high-IQ immigrants will remain China and India.

  47. Like the enslavers of old sleeping with guns under their pillows, they know the level of brutality they have leveled against people of color and their white allies.

    They genuinely believe that white “allies” have been brutalized as much as black slaves, and that they will somehow not be targets if there is a racial rampage. They believe that Darrell Brooks identified his “allies” and swerved to avoid them.

    Seriously, Kendi should simply explain to whites that they don’t have to worry about genocide because it would be silly for the Woke to kill the white geese that lay the golden eggs …

    This assumes that CRT is rational. But Theodore Dalrymple has written about the pleasure of inflicting cruelty for a good cause; I cannot find the exact quote but he has often written on a similar theme:

    To destroy, to smash, are primitive pleasures, and when they are allied to an ideological purpose — the promotion of a religion, social justice, and so on — it’s a pleasure of almost orgasmic intensity. Indeed, to throw a brick through a window in the name of the good of humanity — could any pleasure be greater?

    https://www.catholiceducation.org/en/culture/politics/extremists-and-the-pleasures-of-destruction.html

    It is difficult to read much by Ibram X. Kendi without noticing his resentment – another of Dalrymple’s themes:

    The Uses of Resentment

    The human emotion of resentment is one of the most futile and destructive emotions, more a reflection of inner needs than outer circumstance. Many people spend more time dwelling on the wrongs supposedly done to them than on the wrongs they have done to others.

    While the Karens might think “white allies” refers to all the schoolteachers twisting education so no one realizes blacks are dumb, I think there is another explanation. Mx Kendi says “white allies” to mean Jews. It keeps jews, who might be getting nervous that blacks think they are white, lulled into thinking black ascendency will mean they end up in the savages’ cooking pots, just the badwhites, including the white Karens who failed to educate blacks, but excluding the Jewy Rebeccas who also failed to uplift blacks.

    Tl;dr “white allies” means “Jews.”

    The same people are currently, “how do you do, fellow white people?” really want to tack seamlessly into, “how do you do, fellow people of color?” but are scared that they look too much like the enemy to pull it off. “White allies” gives them another get out of jail free card. I expect to see “People of Color Can Look White” articles in the next few years.

    You gotta feel somewhat sorry for blacks. They’ve supported the Jewish party for a long time, thinking that all the immigrants would accept blacks as the first, most deserving minority. Poor buggers, they don’t realize overthrowing whites will just put non-blacks in charge who do feel the slightest twinge of “white guilt.”

  48. Kendi’s assertions and views are illogical, factually wrong, juvenile, and inarticulate. Frankly, he can be easily replaced by any other race hustler. In other words, he’s just a bat. But who is wielding the bat? Who is enabling, championing, and promoting these hustlers? And to what end?

    The Great Awokening is the most obviously and intensely grassroots movement of my lifetime. There is nothing which compares. Anyone who thinks otherwise is just so haplessly ignorant that it makes me think of African tribesmen trying to defeat gun-toting colonists with Juju. Sure it must have felt bad for those African tribesmen to admit how little they knew and how far they were behind, but, unless they did so, and worked to rectify the situation, they would only ever lose. Ethiopia, like Japan, had the courage. Most did not.

    Wokessness' preachers, and there are millions all around the world, get publicity because they have millions of followers, and organic pull is required to be the bestseller.

    Every random bore, at every point of the political spectrum, always argues that whatever politics they don't like, isn't somehow real or authentic. As if repeatedly denying its authenticity, will make the movement go away. It won't. It just reveals your ignorance, and that you have no desire to understand.

    In reality, Wokeness is in every country and it is spread primarily by smallscale social media stars, who created themselves. From Tumblerinas, to BreadTube, to Black Twitter, these phenomena, and many, many more, are the real drivers.

    You're in a "war among the people" where you refuse to understand the human terrain and you wonder why you're losing. Did you know that the latest study into the growth of Christianity in Rome showed that Constantine's conversion made no difference to how fast people were converting to it? Constantine was simply taking advantage of a major social movement, and he did not boost it.

    I get that you're old, cut off and lacking in curiosity as a person, but I'll share some slightly anonymised anecdotes. I know, they're anecdotes and so won't persuade you, as you just "know" that actually it is all a centralised conspiracy against you, and anyway, if you can't see how ridiculously grassroots the Great Awokening is, then you're completely blind, but ok, it might pique you to think a little.

    1. I meet a random 20 something girl in a major developing country city. She is thoughtful and has a Masters Degree from a local University.

    She has also locked herself away due to Covid for the first half of the outbreak and is on her way to a "meet up", which is her first effort at socialising in months, and it is with "people who are more important to her than anything!" Yet it is essentially the local chapter of the "ContraPoints" meet up.

    2. I meet another 20 something girl in another non-English speaking non-European city. This time it is more of a small town. She too is well-educated locally, though in something sciency. I notice that everything she shares about politics is extremely woke, so I ask what she reads? She says she reads nothing, she just watches local TikTok stars, in her language, and that there's endless numbers of these independent voices.

    She obviously doesn't use the word "endless" to describe the people who best speak to her.

    3. I Have a discussion with 4 men in another similar city. They are local professionals and approaching middle age. One of them, an architect, is mentioning how a friend of theirs has become excessively political and how it is now difficult to socialise with him.

    I try to probe to see what that means, and in reply, says the architect, "I am quite a left wing person, and I am totally against racism and homophobia and so on, but this guy is now constantly telling us what words we can use and how we should live. He had a major life crisis, but he is now alienating his friends by doing this.I actually agree with him on what he says, but he is too rude in how he says it."

    The problem for you Twinkie, and why you'll never be able to admit that this is a grassroots movements, is that, if you do, you'll then have to realise that there is real value in it, and that it truly and profoundly appeals to people.

    Personally, I am not so afraid of being wrong that I can't dive into ideas which I disagree with, and so I can engage with Wokeism, as it actually is, absolutely fine. Obviously you cannot. I suspect that they are fragile ideas used as toothpick structures to sustain an even more fragile persona.

    For your education, Wokeism really is a spiritual movement. For example, it offers the young man a set of beliefs that allows him to avoid ending up as miserable and emotionally repressed as his father. Meanwhile, it offers the young woman the same, but also permission to be angry. In other words, it, in these and many other ways, gives its adherents a new structure which enables them to more fully be themselves.

    Now I personally don't need a silly structure like that, but 99% of people do. People like you, but the structure you trap yourself in, is an older and more restrictive one, and you wonder why everyone flees it to something more suitable!

    Wokeism also does more than allow freedom when compared to conservative structures, it even offers all of the community, sense of transcendence, dogma and importance, that religion offers, but with stories set in the now. Not stories based on someone being so impressive 2 thousand years ago that he could help a blind man to see; like literally any optician. Oh, wow!

    I can list the bad things about Wokeism all day, but I can also list the good things. You can only list the bad things and that is why you remain completely uninformed. But neither of our opinions matter, because basically every under-30, or even under 40-something, agrees with 90% of this stuff. It is weird and sad for me because all of this is just a new trap of mystification, but, regardless of what I feel, in a few years you'll have to go along with it too, just as the CEO of the New York Times did, because all of the juniors will be clamouring for you to agree. What are you going to do? Go to war against your grown children? Good luck, but that has never once worked. Young people form their culture and norms and structures in the latest technological environment. It is therefore almost always going to fit the pattern of contemporary life better than whatever came before. If you want young people to appreciate your wisdom, try to point out how they are building their own trap, not how your outdated trap is actually better! This means you need to recognise that your own is a trap, too, so bad luck, but you're obviously incapable.

    Fortunately for me, because I actually cared to understand, I can see how Wokeism does contain some real value, and that its excesses will hopefully wash away. A billion labels for gender expression might be stupid, but 2 is also stupid, because the very idea of gender is stupid, as if your behaviour has to be dictated by your sex. Perhaps a billion labels really is more liberating than whatever came before. It kind of makes the whole gender thing meaningless, which of course it is. After all, the whole trans thing is really just the stereotypical old conservative idea on gender taken to its logical extreme, to its breaking point. If someone says girls must be "like this" but the girl does not want to, or is like something else, then you really can't blame her, having listened to you, for therefore thinking herself a boy. Trans stuff is stupid precisely because it is built on old gender roles, but it is also those old gender roles self-defeating. Sorry you feel left behind.

I can’t believe any of these people, except maybe LP Jobs, wants to see more Kendi in the Atlantic. And the success of 1990s centrism at Substack like Bulwark, Dispatch, Weiss, Sullivan, etc shows that there is a market out there for middle-of-the-road content. So I don’t get why Atlantic has gone woke when the editors and most of the funders like Bradley probably don’t support it.

    Actually, there is something to the thing about Southwest Asia. Its longstanding status as the center of the world (the junction of the three connected continents), made its peoples the most ethnocentric in the world. As E.O. Wilson, wrote

    Endowed with the advantages of colonial life, the social insects have managed to displace solitary insects, such as cockroaches, grasshoppers, and beetles, from the most favored nest sites and defensible foraging ranges. In the most general terms, social insects control the center of the land environment, while solitary insects predominate in the margins.

    The same thing applies to humans. Those practicing group (ethnocentric) strategies will always occupy the literal center of the land environment and other metaphorically central niches.

After the current vogue of demonizing whites ends, Americans with pure European ancestry will become respected and admired again, just as they are in Latin America. They will occupy the commanding heights of the culture, but their racial element will no longer be predominant. Around the end of the 21st century, the new coalition of pure whites + mestizo/mulatto will find it within themselves to force back the tidal wave of immigration from Malthusian Africa.

    From Steve’s excerpts, I appreciate Dr. Professor Ibram X. Kendi PhD’s article in the Atlantic. He lays out his opponents’ arguments, and then demolishes them one by one. It’s nice to see a leading Public Anti-Intellectual adopt the structure of Enlightenment discourse.

    There must be some Atlantic subscribers in my circle of acquaintances, but I don’t know who they are. I wouldn’t initiate a conversation touching on social or political issues with such a person, and I’d be unlikely to respond to an opening, either — how would I know if the outcome would be discussion or cancellation?

    More than half of the words that Kendi stuffs in my mouth are more-or-less reflective of what I’ve come to think. That’s not a bad batting average. I’m pleased that his rebuttals are both sincere and stupid. Some readers who haven’t finished drinking the Kool-Aid may start to wonder about the ideology they’ve signed up for.

    A quibble:

    Republicans provoked a backlash against CRT, which they also call anti-racism or wokism.

    I’d rephrase that as, “Establishment Republicans opportunistically joined the grassroots backlash against CRT,” but whatever.

    And, which working-class or middle-class or Flyover Country whites call CRT “anti-racism”? We call it “anti-white racism.” There’s a difference.

    Get it through your heads: we do not base our right to existence on our “superiority”! We base it on the fact we’re here, that’s all.

  81. It’s evident that there isn’t really argument between, say, Kendi and Tucker Carlson about whether Kendi’s “antiracism” is racist against whites, it’s just that Kendi thinks that racism against whites is a good thing and Carlson disagrees. This may be obscured by the ridiculous academic trope that racism is directional and doesn’t exist when directed at the appropriate targets, but then any disagreement is about terms rather than substance.

    I have to wonder aloud why the powers that be have selected a simpleton like Kendi and a nonentity like DiAngelo to be the faces of bringing race to the fore in everything. Perhaps it’s cynical but I think the fact that these people aren’t all that bright, and that their product is the inscrutable scribblings of people with an imposter complex is perceived as a benefit. It’s difficult to argue against something that doesn’t itself make much sense and doesn’t have internal consistency even if wrong.

    " Hell, teeming Nigeria alone has tens of millions of people with an IQ over 130. "
    Hell not...

    According to Lynn and Becker the avereage IQ of Nigeria is below 75 IQ. Suppose Igbos have an IQ of 115, the same as the Ashkenazi population. Since this group makes up 20% of Nigeria's population of 210 million, it is easy to calculate with a normal distribution calculator that there are not seven million above 130 IQ. However, if the Igbos are like Ashkenazi, the average IQ of Nigeria's remaining population of 170 million would be around 52 IQs - of which about two persons above 130 IQs are to be expected.

Other white Americans have been led to fear America’s teachers—79 percent of whom are white—instructing “kids to identify in racial terms,” as Blake Masters, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Arizona, said in May. “You are good or bad, depending on what you look like. At this point it is straight up anti-white racism. I don’t think we’re allowed to say that. But let’s call it what it is.”

    I wonder when Kendi is going to apply that form of incisive analysis to Jewish fears of another Holocaust and accusations of anti-Semitism?

    Actually, there is something to the thing about Southwest Asia. Its longstanding status as the center of the world (the junction of the three connected continents), made its peoples the most ethnocentric in the world. As E.O. Wilson, wrote

    Endowed with the advantages of colonial life, the social insects have managed to displace solitary insects, such as cockroaches, grasshoppers, and beetles, from the most favored nest sites and defensible foraging ranges. In the most general terms, social insects control the center of the land environment, while solitary insects predominate in the margins.

    The same thing applies to humans. Those practicing group (ethnocentric) strategies will always occupy the literal center of the land environment and other metaphorically central niches.

  103. Kendi is just a Black corporate propaganda whore just like George Will is a White corporate propaganda whore. Both Kendi and George Will are lantern holders for the JEW/WASP Ruling Class of the American Empire. Kendi and Will work for the billionaires and the plutocrats. Kendi and Will are there to distract White Core Americans from the evil emanating from the ruling class.

    The Atlantic magazine is controlled by the widow of Apple corporation founder Steve Jobs. Steve Job’s widow’s name is Laurene Powell Jobs. Laurene Powell Jobs has a pretty face even though she’s in her fifties and many people think pure evil couldn’t emanate from such an angelic lady. They are wrong.

    Gullible American boobs, who don’t recognize the danger of nasty women such as Laurene Powell Jobs, ain’t listening to the departed expert on female hearts, Robert Palmer. Remember, Robert Palmer warned us that a pretty face don’t mean no pretty heart. Mr. Palmer said he learned that from the start.

    This Laurene Powell Jobs woman saw other billionaires buying up propaganda outlets and she wanted a bite of that apple. Laurene Powell Jobs watched Bezos buy the Washington Post and Carlos Slim buy a chunk of the New York Times and Mike Bloomberg pushing his globalization agenda in his propaganda outlets.

    Laurene Powell Jobs has a Jew named Goldberg as editor of the anti-White propaganda rag The Atlantic. Goldberg pushes open borders mass immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders. Goldberg does not push these nation-wrecking immigration policies for Israel. This Goldberg creature screeches out that the United States is just an idea. To be fair, GOP treasonite Lindsey Graham says the same thing.

    Laurene Powell Jobs, the billionaire mutant who pushes open borders mass immigration and amnesty for illegal alien invaders, has made the decision to use the loot she got from being Steve Job’s wife to attack the United States of America in her The Atlantic magazine.

    Laurene Powell Jobs and this Goldberg swine must be told that they will not win their war against White Core Americans.

    Laurene Powell Jobs and Goldberg will not prevail in their attempts to crush the spirit of American patriots in the United States.

For the Obama biographies, after an initial discreet publisher buy-up push to put them on the NYT bestseller lists, probably picked up by companies to gift to their employees or just to mulch. It’s all part of the post-presidential payola, you see.

    (Only Steve seems to have actually read an Obama biography with some attention all the way through.)

    For the academic racism stuff, at a guess it’s mostly required textbooks, perhaps with a bit of added corporate and non-profit action again. In short, it seems unlikely that a lot of people would pick up Kendi et al in the bookstore because hey, what’s this CRT stuff — sounds interesting!

    The Great Awokening is the most obviously and intensely grassroots movement of my lifetime. There is nothing which compares. Anyone who thinks otherwise is just so haplessly ignorant that it makes me think of African tribesmen trying to defeat gun-toting colonists with Juju. Sure it must have felt bad for those African tribesmen to admit how little they knew and how far they were behind, but, unless they did so, and worked to rectify the situation, they would only ever lose. Ethiopia, like Japan, had the courage. Most did not.

    Wokessness’ preachers, and there are millions all around the world, get publicity because they have millions of followers, and organic pull is required to be the bestseller.

    Every random bore, at every point of the political spectrum, always argues that whatever politics they don’t like, isn’t somehow real or authentic. As if repeatedly denying its authenticity, will make the movement go away. It won’t. It just reveals your ignorance, and that you have no desire to understand.

    In reality, Wokeness is in every country and it is spread primarily by smallscale social media stars, who created themselves. From Tumblerinas, to BreadTube, to Black Twitter, these phenomena, and many, many more, are the real drivers.

    You’re in a “war among the people” where you refuse to understand the human terrain and you wonder why you’re losing. Did you know that the latest study into the growth of Christianity in Rome showed that Constantine’s conversion made no difference to how fast people were converting to it? Constantine was simply taking advantage of a major social movement, and he did not boost it.

    I get that you’re old, cut off and lacking in curiosity as a person, but I’ll share some slightly anonymised anecdotes. I know, they’re anecdotes and so won’t persuade you, as you just “know” that actually it is all a centralised conspiracy against you, and anyway, if you can’t see how ridiculously grassroots the Great Awokening is, then you’re completely blind, but ok, it might pique you to think a little.

    1. I meet a random 20 something girl in a major developing country city. She is thoughtful and has a Masters Degree from a local University.

    She has also locked herself away due to Covid for the first half of the outbreak and is on her way to a “meet up”, which is her first effort at socialising in months, and it is with “people who are more important to her than anything!” Yet it is essentially the local chapter of the “ContraPoints” meet up.

    2. I meet another 20 something girl in another non-English speaking non-European city. This time it is more of a small town. She too is well-educated locally, though in something sciency. I notice that everything she shares about politics is extremely woke, so I ask what she reads? She says she reads nothing, she just watches local TikTok stars, in her language, and that there’s endless numbers of these independent voices.

    She obviously doesn’t use the word “endless” to describe the people who best speak to her.

    3. I Have a discussion with 4 men in another similar city. They are local professionals and approaching middle age. One of them, an architect, is mentioning how a friend of theirs has become excessively political and how it is now difficult to socialise with him.

    I try to probe to see what that means, and in reply, says the architect, “I am quite a left wing person, and I am totally against racism and homophobia and so on, but this guy is now constantly telling us what words we can use and how we should live. He had a major life crisis, but he is now alienating his friends by doing this.I actually agree with him on what he says, but he is too rude in how he says it.”

    The problem for you Twinkie, and why you’ll never be able to admit that this is a grassroots movements, is that, if you do, you’ll then have to realise that there is real value in it, and that it truly and profoundly appeals to people.

    Personally, I am not so afraid of being wrong that I can’t dive into ideas which I disagree with, and so I can engage with Wokeism, as it actually is, absolutely fine. Obviously you cannot. I suspect that they are fragile ideas used as toothpick structures to sustain an even more fragile persona.

    For your education, Wokeism really is a spiritual movement. For example, it offers the young man a set of beliefs that allows him to avoid ending up as miserable and emotionally repressed as his father. Meanwhile, it offers the young woman the same, but also permission to be angry. In other words, it, in these and many other ways, gives its adherents a new structure which enables them to more fully be themselves.

    Now I personally don’t need a silly structure like that, but 99% of people do. People like you, but the structure you trap yourself in, is an older and more restrictive one, and you wonder why everyone flees it to something more suitable!

    Wokeism also does more than allow freedom when compared to conservative structures, it even offers all of the community, sense of transcendence, dogma and importance, that religion offers, but with stories set in the now. Not stories based on someone being so impressive 2 thousand years ago that he could help a blind man to see; like literally any optician. Oh, wow!

    I can list the bad things about Wokeism all day, but I can also list the good things. You can only list the bad things and that is why you remain completely uninformed. But neither of our opinions matter, because basically every under-30, or even under 40-something, agrees with 90% of this stuff. It is weird and sad for me because all of this is just a new trap of mystification, but, regardless of what I feel, in a few years you’ll have to go along with it too, just as the CEO of the New York Times did, because all of the juniors will be clamouring for you to agree. What are you going to do? Go to war against your grown children? Good luck, but that has never once worked. Young people form their culture and norms and structures in the latest technological environment. It is therefore almost always going to fit the pattern of contemporary life better than whatever came before. If you want young people to appreciate your wisdom, try to point out how they are building their own trap, not how your outdated trap is actually better! This means you need to recognise that your own is a trap, too, so bad luck, but you’re obviously incapable.

    Fortunately for me, because I actually cared to understand, I can see how Wokeism does contain some real value, and that its excesses will hopefully wash away. A billion labels for gender expression might be stupid, but 2 is also stupid, because the very idea of gender is stupid, as if your behaviour has to be dictated by your sex. Perhaps a billion labels really is more liberating than whatever came before. It kind of makes the whole gender thing meaningless, which of course it is. After all, the whole trans thing is really just the stereotypical old conservative idea on gender taken to its logical extreme, to its breaking point. If someone says girls must be “like this” but the girl does not want to, or is like something else, then you really can’t blame her, having listened to you, for therefore thinking herself a boy. Trans stuff is stupid precisely because it is built on old gender roles, but it is also those old gender roles self-defeating. Sorry you feel left behind.

    You don’t know your history well. All the best and latest research on the growth of early Christian history shows that it was an elite, urban religion in the beginning. Indeed much of the peasantry did not take to it sincerely until the medieval times in many parts of Europe. Indeed pagan practices persisted in the countryside until quite late. Eventually though, the rural population followed the elite lead and then became staunch defenders of it. But that is a process that took over a thousand years (this pattern repeated itself with the imposition of Protestantism in England later where there was a great deal of resistance to the elite imposition of the new religion in the countryside).

    Like the enslavers of old sleeping with guns under their pillows, they know the level of brutality they have leveled against people of color and their white allies.
     

     
    They genuinely believe that white "allies" have been brutalized as much as black slaves, and that they will somehow not be targets if there is a racial rampage. They believe that Darrell Brooks identified his "allies" and swerved to avoid them.

    Seriously, Kendi should simply explain to whites that they don’t have to worry about genocide because it would be silly for the Woke to kill the white geese that lay the golden eggs ...
     
    This assumes that CRT is rational. But Theodore Dalrymple has written about the pleasure of inflicting cruelty for a good cause; I cannot find the exact quote but he has often written on a similar theme:

    To destroy, to smash, are primitive pleasures, and when they are allied to an ideological purpose — the promotion of a religion, social justice, and so on — it's a pleasure of almost orgasmic intensity. Indeed, to throw a brick through a window in the name of the good of humanity — could any pleasure be greater?

    It is difficult to read much by Ibram X. Kendi without noticing his resentment - another of Dalrymple's themes:

    The Uses of Resentment

    The human emotion of resentment is one of the most futile and destructive emotions, more a reflection of inner needs than outer circumstance. Many people spend more time dwelling on the wrongs supposedly done to them than on the wrongs they have done to others.

    While the Karens might think “white allies” refers to all the schoolteachers twisting education so no one realizes blacks are dumb, I think there is another explanation. Mx Kendi says “white allies” to mean Jews. It keeps jews, who might be getting nervous that blacks think they are white, lulled into thinking black ascendency will mean they end up in the savages’ cooking pots, just the badwhites, including the white Karens who failed to educate blacks, but excluding the Jewy Rebeccas who also failed to uplift blacks.

    Tl;dr “white allies” means “Jews.”

    The same people are currently, “how do you do, fellow white people?” really want to tack seamlessly into, “how do you do, fellow people of color?” but are scared that they look too much like the enemy to pull it off. “White allies” gives them another get out of jail free card. I expect to see “People of Color Can Look White” articles in the next few years.

    You gotta feel somewhat sorry for blacks. They’ve supported the Jewish party for a long time, thinking that all the immigrants would accept blacks as the first, most deserving minority. Poor buggers, they don’t realize overthrowing whites will just put non-blacks in charge who do feel the slightest twinge of “white guilt.”

    And he knows exactly how long he’d have his job — if the pawn ever mustered the minimal courage to even mildly displease his (((masters))).

    He could, for example, identify Israeli apartheid as “worse than the worst” apartheid South African Blacks ever experienced — and that’s according to the South African Blacks.

    But he’s a spoiled brat & a coward, so he won’t.
