Last week, Gregory Hood wrote that Republicans may take back the House in the midterm elections this year, and then asked: Should we care? Two days ago, at the inauguration of the new Republican governor of Virginia, I think I learned the answer to that question.

In 2020, Virginia voted 55 percent to 45 percent for Joe Biden over Donald Trump, so Glenn Youngkin’s upset is supposed to herald great things for Republicans. Republicans depend on whites — 85 percent of Mr. Trump’s 2020 voters were white — and the huge crowd at the inauguration was more than overwhelmingly white. Mr. Youngkin was greatly helped by white voters who were angry about Critical Race Theory taught in school and furious that the Democrat, Terry McAuliffe, brushed their anger aside. A rising tide of whites is beginning to understand race, but the inauguration proved that the party understands nothing. From the invocation that invoked Martin Luther King to the benediction that included a blessing in Spanish, it was diversity, start to finish.

The kind of people at the inauguration — party officials, campaign workers, officer holders — were whiter than white. I don’t know when I’ve seen so much long, blond hair in one place.

Like so many Republican events, there must have been more blacks on the podium than in the stands.

Black preacher Calvin Duncan gave the opening prayer and quoted Martin Luther King: “Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can drive out hate.” I wonder what kind of “hate” he had in mind. A white guy pledged allegiance, and two white guys sang the national anthem — usually a guaranteed slot for a black — and then the three new state-wide officer holders took the oath of office. Attorney General Jason Miyares (Hispanic) was sworn in by Judge Kevin Duffan (black). Lieutenant Governor Winsome Sears (black woman) was sworn in — to tumultuous applause from the blondes — by Judge Richard Taylor (black). Glenn Youngkin, white man, was sworn in by a tag team: Bernard Goodwin (black) and Elizabeth McClanahan (white woman). The shouting and clapping for Winsome Sears certainly equaled that for Glenn Youngkin.

In his inaugural address, Mr. Youngkin regretted “the rise of divisiveness in the public square,” promised to “restore trust in government” and “bind the wounds of division,” mourned “the tragic consequences of Covid-19,” told Virginians they are a “resilient and courageous people,” and proclaimed “a new and better day ahead.”

He also told us we lived in “the most exceptional nation in history,” but that it had “chapters of great injustice.” We mustn’t forget that. He praised “barrier breakers” such as Maggie Walker and Douglas Wilder. I would bet not one person in 500 knew who Maggie Walker was. She was a very light-skinned black woman (1864 – 1934) who started a bank and was its president. Her house is now preserved by the National Park Service as the Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site. Douglas Wilder was governor of Virginia from 1990 to 1994 and was the first black since Reconstruction to be elected governor of a state. So far, his house is not a National Historic Site.

Talk of barrier-breaking was a warmup for Mr. Youngkin to thump his lieutenant governor, Winsome Sears. She was born in Jamaica and is the first lady-lieutenant-governor and first non-white woman ever elected to state-wide office in Virginia. The crowd roared itself hoarse over this and then roared some more when Mr. Youngkin boasted that with a Hispanic attorney general, this was “the most diverse leadership in commonwealth history.”

Mr. Youngkin, too, quoted MLK: “We came on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” “Our ship is named Virginia,” he said, “and it’s big enough for the hopes of a diverse people. We welcome all, because the future belongs to all.” The crowd gurgled with delight.

However, those white people let out their loudest whoops when, in a reference to Critical Race Theory, Mr. Youngkin said, “We will remove politics from the classroom and focus on essentials.” They were not as vocal when he added, “And we will teach all of our history, the good and the bad.”

Next was a very dark Indian woman, Suparna Dutta, who fought relaxation of standards at selective Virginia schools because that would mean fewer Asians admitted to the school her son attends. She read Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken,” which Mr. Youngkin chose for her. Then came the benediction by Spanish-speaking Pastor Jonathan Avendano of Iglesia Mana del Cielo. Making it to America really does mean mana from heaven.

After him came a “blessing dance” of representatives from the 11 Indian tribes of Virginia, which consisted of tom-tom beating and outlandish chanting. The three newly-sworn-in officials came down from the stands for a personal blessing and to sniff the smoke from the sacred fire.

And, finally, there was an anthem, “The Blessing,” by the all-black choir of Virginia Union University.

No one, of course, sang “Carry Me Back to Old Virginny,” which was the state song until 1997, when it was fired for “racism.” It was written by a black man — how many states can claim that? — but James Bland’s lyrics are literally unthinkable by today’s standards: “Massa and Missis have long gone before me / Soon we will meet on that bright and golden shore. / There we’ll be happy and free from all sorrow, / There’s where we’ll meet and we’ll never part no more.”

The ceremony ended with a parade: a strange collection that, presumably, represents Virginia. The corps of cadets of the Virginia Military Institute marched by very snappily.

Some of the cadets made a good impression as ushers during the ceremony.

Police motorcycles roared.

There was a gaggle of Vietnamese Americans, waving their national flag and a handful of Latinos for Youngkin, also with their national flags.

Part of the Latino collection was this weird fellow, who at least carried an American flag.

There was also a group of blacks from something called the Broken Men Foundation, which tries to “make broken youth better men.”

The inauguration and even the setting were a jarring mix of what Virginia used to be and what it has become. Before the ceremony, a military band played classic marches: “Starts and Stripes for Ever,” “Under the Double Eagle,” “Semper Fidelis.” Whenever the band took a break, the PA system blared synthetic disco music.

The older monuments on the Capitol grounds are, of course, to the state’s white past. George Washington is still astride his horse as part of a magnificent group unveiled in 1858.

He has an honor guard of Virginians: Patrick Henry, George Mason, John Marshall, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Lewis (fought under Washington in the French and Indian War and during the Revolution), and Thomas Nelson (signed the Declaration, was a military leader and statesman).

These men — all white, mostly slaveholders — would be excellent candidates to represent Virginia along with George Washington in Statuary Hall at the US Capitol. The now-contemptible Robert E. Lee was spirited away by dark of night on December 20, 2020, after standing at Washington’s side for 111 years. He will be replaced by a giant statue of a black woman who stars in a more recent memorial on the state-house grounds: Barbara Johns.

Johns’s claim to fame is to have organized a one-day student strike in 1951 to demand equal facilities for black schools — not integration. She went on to become an elementary-school librarian. Her monument honors blacks on all four of its sides.

To my surprise, Stonewall Jackson still stands on the Capitol grounds.

The inscription on the base reads:

Presented by English Gentlemen as a tribute of admiration for the Soldier and Patriot Thomas J. Jackson, and gratefully accepted by Virginia in the name of the Southern People. Done A.D. 1875, in the hundredth year of the Commonwealth. “Look, there is Jackson standing like a stone wall.”

As his first official act — as promised — Governor Youngkin signed an executive order banning Critical Race Theory in public schools. Today, he is celebrating Martin Luther King’s birthday. He will certainly not lay a wreath at the Stonewall statue — just a few steps from his new home in the governor’s mansion — to celebrate the general’s 198th birthday on Friday. Will he fight to end discrimination against whites? No. Will he say anything about illegal immigration, much less do anything about it? No. Will he even whisper a single word that suggests he has any idea what demographic replacement means for Virginia? Of course not. And I suspect that any new Republicans who turn up in Washington after the primaries will be no different.

On my way home from Richmond, I visited the site where Stonewall died, May 10, 1863, after the Battle of Chancellorsville. There are a few exhibits, one of which shows a far nobler sentiment than any we are likely to hear from today’s Republicans.

    The attempt to establish a totalitarian left-wing government by using Covid fear is the issue that trumps all others. He ended vaccine mandates for State workers and mask mandates for children in schools. That is important.

    “sniff the smoke from the sacred fire.” – I wonder what the (presumably, Roman Catholic) Spanish speaking, ” Pastor (as Mr Taylor called him), felt about that. Personally, as a Catholic Christian, I would avoid sniffing the holy fires of, or rubbing the Idols of, Other cultures. As a Catholic I once felt that I had achieved a more generous appreciation of Buddhism when seeing it practised at a Japanese shrine. Nonetheless, I also felt that I ought to avoid the rubbing of the Buddha’s belly for personal, religious (Catholic) reasons: an example of great respect being learned for another culture whilst retaining one’s own cultural and religious integrity.

    I’ve had to stop friends from waving around smudge sticks in my house. Everyone thinks they are a shaman. Superstitions, though, are uncanny in lands where belief is strong, and I would not laugh at the beliefs of pagans. In “The Scalpel and the Soul,” by Dr. Allan J. Hamilton, the author talks about working at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Africa. He was instructed by the natives never to go on the Congo River without an African guide, because a giant snake lives in the river that kills white people. He, being somewhat superstitious, follows the native belief, but his successor at the hospital does not, and is drowned on the river. I’ve always wondered what I would do as a Catholic on Mount Everest where climbers regularly offer prayers to local deities to ensure their safety on the mountain. Would I commit a sin and offer a prayer, or trust in my faith in Jesus to overcome all? Luckily, I will never have to face this choice.

    You have to take what you can get. And in this crazy republic with universal suffrage, Youngkin isn’t bad. There is just no way to elect a Segregationist anywhere in the country nowadays. But, the basic principles of the republican party, lower taxes, less regulation, less affirmative action and ending anti-White government regulation can work. The law-and-order side also helps and also brings on board the more sensible minorities who have to live among the criminals. This country could be saved if we returned to only White male land owners being allowed to vote, but it ain’t going to happen anytime soon. In the meantime, we have to give guys like Youngkin a chance.

  9. @Rich

    Universal suffrage? From what I’ve been hearing it’s impossible to vote in most segregationist strongholds (Voting Rights for Marginalized Communities of Color!). In your crazy republic, what drives me crazy are the white suburban voters who believe that stuff. Once they wake up and 80-90% of whites vote Republican, progress will be inevitable.

    The Republican party of today is much like the Democrat party under Bill Clinton in the 1990’s. The GOP has largely become a center-left race pandering party with a small contingent of conservatives.

    Given their inexorable leftward trajectory the GOP will probably be woke progressives who venerate AOC and Ilhan Omar sometime in the next decade.

    These same Traitor Whites bestow lavish treasure chests of money, prestige and positions on ghetto undeserving blacks. Simultaneously, the white working class is constantly bashed and ridiculed as uneducated, ignorant hayseeds who deserve to die if they are leery of a strange new vaccine that they are being bulled, threatened and possibly jailed for not taking. Blacks get a pass on vaccine hesitancy. They sail through the Covid persecutions without a scratch or negative whisper. Their beatings, footings and murders during their BLM reign of terror are forgotten. Whites are held without bail for misdemeanor trespass.

    Anders Behring Breivik……he was recently in court and held a sign about the Genocide of Whites. Everyone shakes their head and calls him a murderous loon. I used to as well………Hmmmm….The gears are turning.

    Some thoughts

    1) very clever to mention the negro women bank president. Until the 1960s great society experiements Negro Christians had a higher rate of employment and higher rate of births inside wedlock than whites. It’s important to highlight the success of negro merchants and capitalists.

    2) wonder if those Christian VMI cadets know who they are going to be fighting for. If they knew the truth, I doubt any of them would join the Pentagon after graduation.

    3) voting doesn’t matter. Don’t get your hopes up. Supporting the lesser of 2 evils is still supporting evil. Withhold your consent by refusing to vote.

    One thing for sure is that societies like this become increasingly dysfunctional.

    There’s low trust, low unity and witch hunting. Less able people get into positions of power with their lack of judgment and ability being magnified and organized elites can loot the place at will.

    It’s negative totalitarianism. The elite gain absolute power but discover that people disconnect and the economy collapses.

    In contrast, positive totalitarianism is an elite with absolute power working to better the conditions of the public (for example Hitler’s National Socialism – at least for ethnic Germans, or currently the Chinese Communist Party’s national development project).

    The US needs to switch poles – negative to positive. The Democratic option disappeared on 23rd November 1963.

    I have a hard time feeling happy over Virginia because
    (1) the issue isn’t lining up sponsors, making speeches, or avoiding one bad photo-op, the issue is cheating. Republicans have done as little as they possibly could to fix the cheating. Democrats probably don’t cheat as much in situations where they take the result for granted or fear getting caught. So we’ll win when the Democrats cause our win to happen (see 2) and lose every single other time Democrats care. Also
    (2) This wasn’t Republicans outsmarting anyone or Hispanic Conservatives finally existing, this was Terry MacAuliffe trapped in the Evel Knievel Simpsons episode hitting his head on every rock in the gulch. Were this a fight with 90s Terry MacAuliffe, we’d have lost, and without Democrats cheating. Not only is the Republican strategy to hope the Democrat slips on a banana peel, they can’t be bothered to place the peel themselves.
    Some nonwhites will vote red but never in enough numbers to be an equivalent to red-voting whites.

  22. Much ado about suburban white women in Youngkin’s election, so perhaps the inauguration was just playing to the base.

  23. EdwardM says:

    Great, and sickening, observations.

    promised to “restore trust in government”

    How about an elected official who proclaims in his inauguration, “We should not trust government, some limited government is a necessary evil, and I am here to represent that reality”? This was one of the core the founding principles of our once-great nation.

  24. I feel like the entire world is going to pits not just some state in America or the nation of America only. Everyone seems to be on the edge, waiting to get offended. I still believe the internet destroyed society and even as recent as the early 2000s things were fine. But with fast broadband, social media and instant streaming all hell broke loose. I view the future of earth very pessimistically. Strangely, China of all nations seems to work fine- a mostly indigenous race held under control by a Government that is loathed by the entire world. The next decades- probably the next century belongs to China. In the end democracy was the Trojan horse and everything that came with it destroyed not only the west but every democracy on Earth. If two brothers of the same mother never get along how can two different races or religions?? All the commies have to do is sit on the side and watch the carnage unfold.

  25. Yes Virginia there is an America.

  26. We all try to keep hope, such as in the comments here. However, I believe Mr. Taylor is right that these “conservatives” will not conserve anything. They won a small skirmish during a long continuing retreat, that’s all. Immigration and the promotion of die-versity assures that defeat will come.

    They haven’t been fighting like Stonewall Jackson. Instead of standing up, like a stone wall, the conservatives have been laying down like a patch of grass, ready to be trampled.

  27. @KenH

    Democrats today are like 90’s Republicans, so it makes sense that Republicans today are like 90’s Democrats. De-regulation run amok, the triumph of money-fueled elections and politics, and the swift rise of identity politics as a cloak to cover the venality and incompetence of both sides.

    Plus, of course, all those insanely profitable wars, kickbacks from globocap all around, and unrestrained influence peddling operations overseas! Yay Empire!

    And isn’t Virginia CIA headquarters, plus home to more federal employees than any other state? What should we really expect at this point if we have been paying attention?

  28. @Alvin

    Alvin, I appreciate yours and Steve-K9’s take on the Flu Manchu PanicFest tyranny (a nice “crisis” not let to waste). This tyranny is an immediate threat, but the immigration replacement has always been an existential threat. You might have hope of fighting the tyranny (no, not so easily), but when your nation gets replaced, what are you fighting against anything for anymore anyway?

    It’s not a slow bleed either now. Would this scumbag McAuliffe ever have gotten elected in the first place had it not been for recent massive immigration into the State of Virginia?

    I’ve never seen anything like the communist revolutionary nature of Covid lockdowns, mask mandates (the worst form of psychological abuse ever), school closures, vaccine mandates, and show-me-your papers passports, with quarantine and detention camps on the horizon.

    Agreed, though. Keep in mind, though Governors may do this and that, the precedent has been set, just like that 20 years ago regarding the illegal searches of persons and property daily by the TSA. Nobody even argues that one anymore. Will they argue the next time there’s “just gonna be a small 2-week LOCKDOWN? “Don’t be alarmed, people. This is a minor precaution. Of course, were we to have another serious Pan-damn-demic, well we reserve the right to … blah, blah, blah”.

    Three hundred investigations of priests in PA and there were two indictments, yet anonymous wants to judge the RCC by the exceptions while, you can bet, he’s fine with psychoanalysis and, say, Democratic politics, where sexual degeneracy is nearly the essence.

    His comment also makes him a free rider on Western Civilization. He’d have us believe he’s examined and found wanting the theology, philosophy, ethics, morals, jurisprudence, art, architecture, music, and civilizing force of the Church to which he owes just about everything good and decent in his life.

    He’ll no doubt claim that the Church was an impediment to science when, in fact, without the Scholastics creating the language, logic, and concepts necessary for science to arise, it’d have been as still born as it was among every non-Christian society in history.

    The irony is that such hatred for the Church typically arises in the same sexual incontinence he’s accusing others of.

  35. MLK says:

    I agree, and there was more.

    Virginia is sui generis as far as what purport to be purple states go because of its location and relationship to the federal government in general and national security state in particular.

    Virginia has a recent history of electing a governor of the opposite party to the president elected the year before. That hid the relentless assault during the Obama era on the long-standing cozy arrangement between the establishment wings of the two parties. After Trump took the oath, what I refer to as RINO filth essentially switch sides in Virginia, the establishment types went neutral, allowing the Democrats to wreak havoc in Virginia.

    Everything else aside, Youngkin represents a modus vivendi between the establishment wing and still ascending MAGA. It’s anything but meaningless that the RINO filth (e.g. The Lincoln Project) have been flushed out and now openly align and coordinate with the freaks on the left.

    The Democrats understood that the only way for them to won in Virginia was to divide Youngkin from MAGA support. Trump and Youngkin ensured that didn’t happen and that MAGA wasn’t discouraged to turn out.

    Whatever the political and ideological persuasion, there’s always a strong contingent of perverse happy horsesh*t in the form Lenin’s “The worse, the better.” Not the least among those who identify as white nationalists.

    Youngkin’s win represents the coalescence of the Republican establishment wing and MAGA in the state in which the former is most powerful. As I alluded above, if they go to the sidelines in Virginia, the Democrats and the RINO filth play rapid destructive catchup with California.

    Now Youngkin has become the vessel of hope — much more appealing to the establishment than DeSantis — to keep Trump from returning to where he belongs, sitting in the Oval Office. That’s the kind of wholly sanguine motivation Republican governors have been sorely lacking.

  36. Thim says:

    Taylor says Biden got 55% in Virginia. Never bothered to look at the evidence of massive fraud in Virginia.

    Youngkin probably lost. But they wanted the CEO of Carlyle Group to win. That’s how they roll now. The insiders agree on someone and the numbers always somehow work out.

    “The inauguration and even the setting were a jarring mix of what Virginia used to be and what it has become. ”

    That’s true. So get used to it, Mr. T. Nobody’s going back to Africa, Mexico or Vietnam. You are all condemned to find a modus vivendi.

    Which shouldn’t be hard. If like me you lived in Europe and could see the woods instead of the trees, you would see that, first-gen immigrants apart, Americans all fall into the same basic patterns of living. The conditions of life — individual houses, the sprawl of suburbs and strip malls, the anonimity of an immense country, and many others unique to America — impose a common way of life. In a hundred years, your lament here will look as quaint as stories about Mrs. Lincoln keeping her wardrobe in the Oval Office.

    If your cultural and religious integrity are based in any part on rubbing the “right” idols and sniffing the “right” smoke (incense), that should be embarrassing.

    If you think that God cares whether you follow the rituals of your religion rather than someone else’s — or no rituals at all — that reveals something about the pointlessness and irrationality that constitute the bulk of religion.

    “He’ll no doubt claim that the Church was an impediment to science when, in fact, without the Scholastics creating the language, logic, and concepts necessary for science to arise, it’d have been as still born as it was among every non-Christian society in history.”
    “The Scholastics” (principally Thomas Aquinas) did not create “the language, logic, and concepts necessary for science.” They borrowed them from the ancient Greek non-Christian philosophers, principally Aristotle.

    “Aristotle’s logical writings comprise six works, known collectively as the Organon (“Tool”). The significance of the name is that logic, for Aristotle, was not one of the theoretical sciences. These were physics, mathematics, and metaphysics. Instead, logic was a tool used by all the sciences. (To say that logic is not a science in this sense is in no way to deny it is a rigorous discipline. The notion of a science was a very special one for Aristotle, most fully developed in his Posterior Analytics.)”

    “When Thomas referred to Aristotle as the Philosopher, he was not merely adopting a façon de parler of the time. He adopted Aristotle’s analysis of physical objects, his view of place, time and motion, his proof of the prime mover, his cosmology.”

    I share your sentiments but let me push back some. The racial justice statements, Juneteenth celebrations, blacks appearing on TV commercials disproportionately than their population percentage, etc. are more tokenism than anything else. Most Whites (and minorities) couldn’t care less. Their IQs alone make them even less of a threat.

    Nobody is being arrested for not wearing a mask – not yet, at least – and blacks that I see (except the homeless) are among the most mask compliant and most scared of the fake virus and mutations. On vaccines, they learned or heard about Tuskegee but the one’s who have jobs that require it are getting jabbed…not as much as Whites but they face pressures to get injected too.

    I built a second home, with well, in a remote, wooded area of the country on a very large lake over a decade ago.

Luckily, my primary residence is in a mostly Red state, and I have property in a more remote area of this state that I plan to relocate to in a few years. I avoid all major cities like the plague (or maybe, like the Plandemic). I’ve diversified my assets as much as I can, do my best to maintain my health, and keep a low profile (except for posting on this website — probably unwise). I, too, plan to disappear to the extent possible within the next few years. I don’t care if I ever travel outside the continental U.S. (and even then, will avoid Blue states and cities). My world may become small, and I may end up with fewer assets than I thought I would, but I can still have a good time for the remainder of my years — particularly if I disassociate myself from Leftists — including Left-leaning friends, despite their good intentions, because of the damage they’ve done. This fall will likely be the last time I cast a vote for national office holder, because if it isn’t a Red tsunami after everything we’ve witnessed for the past year (nay, past 20+ years), I will be forced to conclude that our situation really is hopeless.

    Actually, the United States of America was founded on the principle that only land owning Whites could vote. It worked pretty well as a system because landowners are tied to the community and have a real interest in seeing the community prosper. Since you asked, I’ll explain to you my personal experience in how I managed to become a land owner. After serving in the Army, I got a job, took advantage of the training available, saved my pennies, nickels and dimes, lived frugally, and bought a house. I’ll let you in on a secret, lots of people do it. I know a Jamaican immigrant who arrived on these shores penniless and now owns several houses and makes a decent living off of them. No “great White man” is unable to own land. Part of being considered “great” is working hard and being able to buy property, if you choose. I bet a lot of “antifa” Whites can’t figure out how to buy a house.

    I have many older “boomer” cousins who came of age when interest rates on a home mortgage were over 10%. A good job paid \$150 a week and that after several of them returned from fighting a jungle war in Vietnam. The smart ones prospered from the crazy inflation of the 70s and early 80s and did well. None of them were “privileged”. The attempt to turn younger Whites against White boomers is just another attempt to divide Whites. Don’t let yourself fall into that trap.

    I do in fact network with other whites (sorry, I don’t capitalize it — looks stupid to me and just plays to the “woke” crowd), and one of the main reasons I own property where I do is because I want to strengthen ties with other like-minded whites. I was born in the Red state where my primary residence is located and in which I intend to maintain my primary residence, currently under construction and away from large cities. I could throw a stone and hit ten newcomers who have relocated to this beautiful state within the past year.

    I’m not “free-riding” on anyone’s “efforts or courage”, nor am I “occupying” those “safe spaces”. I purchased my properties at fair-market value with the full intention of making those areas stronger, by increasing the number of like-minded people (there’s strength in numbers, or haven’t you heard). My second home is on property that has been in our family for over 100 years…so you would more correct in accusing my newest neighbors, who purchased homes that had been owned by my grandparents and great aunts and uncles for decades, as being “occupiers” “free-riding” on the “efforts and courage” of others.

    Like the Dems, they are concerned about nonwhites. They never talk about whites, or how whites really live. Or how the antidiscriminatory laws are racist against whites. Or how whites are continually robbed, beaten, and murdered, and it’s fine with most out there. They never talk about the trillions allocated to nonwhites, to give free housing, free food, free utilities, free tuitions, and all of the free healthcare they want.
    This is why most pro white Millenials have no use for this stuff. Especially since a lot of the “pro-white” Boomers have nonwhite wives or partners.

    Why do you think all of this “woke” nonsense suddenly exploded onto the scene? I would say it’s due to Millennials coming of age and starting to exert their influence (although it’s hard to blame them — they’ve been fed a steady diet of it from pre-school through college). And I see many more GenXers or Millennials with non-white partners than I’ve ever seen with Boomers. At least 50% of the ads on TV, magazines, or the internet show white-black couples with mixed race children having a grand time, brief flashes of gay or lesbian couples cuddling or posing together for selfies (i.e., just long enough for the subliminal message to come through but not long enough to piss off the ordinary viewer), or the usual wise/cool black with the dufus white (we’ve been seeing that for decades). I don’t think it’s Boomers making those ads or who are responsible for them increasing exponentially since the 2020 Summer of Love.

    There is a coordinated effort by our government, Big Media, and corporate America to promote miscegenation and the end of the Caucasian race.

    To be really consistent, all government contractors would also be deprived of the vote.
