How long until this purported “ethical” act becomes compulsory, as a way to finally atone for white privilege? [VIDEO: ‘White people should commit suicide as an ethical act,’ Duquesne professor says, College Fix, August 30, 2021]:

Duquesne University Professor Derek Hook said there are merits to the argument proposed by another professor who argued that it would be ethical for white people to kill themselves.

The anti-critical race theory group Mythinformed MKE posted the video recently. “This is part of an ‘anti-racist’ discussion on ‘nice white therapists held by the [American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work],” the group wrote on Facebook. The video appears to be from a summer session hosted by Hook, though the content is not otherwise publicly available.

“White people should commit suicide as an ethical act,” the top of a presentation by Hook said.

He quoted from a South African philosophy professor named Terblanche Delport, who wrote in 2016 about white people killing themselves.

Delport allegedly made similar comments in 2016, in reaction to racial division in the former apartheid state.

“[T]he only (life) purpose for whites, specifically Afrikaners, is to await their death or to commit suicide, like the sumarai falls on his short sword when he has fallen into disgrace,” Delport said, according to Radio Free South Africa.

“Here’s the kind of crazy gambit of this talk,” Hook said. “I want to suggest that psychoanalytically we could even make the argument that there was something ethical in Delport’s statements.”

While Hook concedes that Delport might just be a “fighter” who is too aggressive in his arguments, he doesn’t want to dismiss the concept of white people killing themselves to atone for racism.

He also suggests that symbolically white people could kill themselves or undergo “[metaphorical] castration.”

“I want to make the argument that there is some kind of ethical dimension to his provocations,” the Duquesne professor said.

“I think Delport took his white audience to the threshold of a type of symbolic extinction…he took them to a proposed end of whiteness,” Hook said.

Delport is a “scholar and a practitioner of psychoanalysis with expertise in the areas of Lacanian psychoanalysis, post-colonial theory (the work of Frantz Fanon in particular), the psychology of racism and critical social psychology,” according to his university bio.

If you aren’t reading the tea leaves, you don’t know where the endless promotion of white privilege, systemic inequality and implicit bias is headed.

Have there been any documented suicides by white people trying to rid the world of white privilege? If not, odds are there will be many in the coming years, as the nefarious idea white people are uniquely evil and unworthy of life becomes ingrained in impressionable young white children.

    At this point it’s like Jonestown on a worldwide scale with various public figures taking turns playing Jim Jones.

    I had a friend the other day say “I can’t believe they’re thinking about giving kids the shots!” My response was that’s the natural culmination to this story, it puts a pretty little bow on the whole charade, and gives a logical conclusion in people’s minds to the narrative; like the ending of a book.

    It’s the same with the precursor to the White genocide that’s gearing up as we speak. How many people in 15 years will say “I can’t believe they’re slaughtering the last of the Whites in America!” Really? Didn’t see any warning signs did ya? When I tell friends they better make plans to retire outside of the country they laugh… until they realize I’m dead serious. Demographics are destiny, and the impending implosion isn’t far off the horizon.

    This guy Hook is only an Associate Professor after so many schools and degrees that he is obviously a “professional student” for an occupation. His degree is in Psychology, not Psychiatry, yet he is called an expert in psychoanalysis. Obviously Duquesne has low standards.

    I can’t imagine very many white students taking a class this twit teaches. He’s White and from South Africa. He must be full of self loathing. Surely a masochist. I’d be surprised if he didn’t hire black women to urinate on him and beat him. Another numptie with zero common sense.

    If I was sure there was an after-life, I’d be tempted. Watching these idiots try to make and distribute electricity, grow and deliver food, and do everything else modern life requires would be hilarious. Think Haiti on a global scale.

    As it is, I just want nothing to do with them. The only time I interact with American Africans is if it is unavoidable as part of my job.

  11. “Have there been any documented suicides by white people trying to rid the world of white privilege? If not, odds are there will be many in the coming years, as the nefarious idea white people are uniquely evil and unworthy of life becomes ingrained in impressionable young white children.”

    Fascinating and sadly prophetic. What’s worse? Those suicides will be glorified as a group of self-selected martyrs by a media suggesting that those people’s choice is one to emulate.

    1. Duquesne was founded as a Catholic institution. Another ‘heckuva job’ for the crew that gave you the 2d Vatican Council and its sequelae.

    2. He’s a psychology professor whose stock in trade is psychoanalysis. I was once employed at a university medical center – teaching hospital, medical school, nursing school. There was one faculty member there who was willing to advertise his psychoanalytic training. That man was born in 1923 and died in 1996. The number of psychoanalysis mavens on a typical medical school faculty these days is zero. The number employed in a typical clinical psychology program would be one or zero. The number in a typical academic psychology department is zero. You find them in the English department, if there. Duquesne wasted a faculty position on this tool.

    3. Hook is apparently an English-speaking white South African with academic appointments at Duquesne, Birkbeck College of the University of London, and the University of Pretoria. We have it on the authority of George W. Bush that being a handsomely compensated intellectual onanist is a job Americans just won’t do.

    I’ve been saying this for years, but with a twist. Truth is, all whites could kill themselves in a gigantic act of hari-kari and all the blacks would do is condemn the “racist” whites for leaving them with no one to take care of them. They would quickly use up whatever resources were left behind and gradually the nation would turn to decrepit disarray.

    Blacks must stop the obession with whites, they must start dealing with their own problems and situation directly, without continued reference to whites. There is a man named Jessie Lee Peterson in Los Angeles who understands this, but there are very few other good examples in the public sphere.

    The irony of this coming from an idiot in South Africa is hilarious, and stunning that a people will work so hard against their best interest. Since Mandela’s release from prison that nation has done nothing but regress back toward it’s primitive cultural mean. The fact that the current conditions in American cities where Africans have literally made them uninhabitable for whites with more than one brain cell is somehow being blamed on white oppression is yet another cause for laughter. Stating the obvious that whites will be minorities in this country soon and the regression that follows it will also be our fault may end up being one of the most profound ironies in the history of mankind. South Africa is merely the test tube that no one is honestly recording the data from.

  15. I just looked up this dude’s bio. What the hell is “Lacanian”, anyway? I tried to google it, but honestly found nothing that made sense, in any kind of layman’s terms. But I guess that’s just a by-product of liberal arts colleges these days?

  16. Professor Hook(er) is an idiot. He has to quote a white South African cuck to make a name for himself. That he uses (((psychoanalysis ))) to look at the problem (ostensibly us) you know the tool needs to be slapped.

    How many precious blacks can even pronounce “Duquesne” correctly? ‘Nuff said!

    @Jack Boniface

    The novus ordo church instead disavows the traditional latin mass , sacraments and liturgical calendar. Don’t expect anything Catholic from the v2 church.

  18. The educated idiot doesn’t know what he’s talking about in reference to the Samurai- they didn’t “fall upon their swords.” The Wakazashi or short sword was stabbed into the abdomen, drawn horizontally across the stomach and then drawn upwards at a right angle whereupon the individual committing ritual suicide (Seppuku) would have his head cut off with a Katana or long sword. Since he’s so eager for whites to kill themselves, I suggest he try it out on himself. Good riddance.

    Wrong choice…Pinochet was a proto-neoliberal on good terms with Israel. Do you have evidence that Pinochet would be a good friend and protector of the Native Born White American Working Class?

  21. It will happen. It won’t happen for most white adults, but the idea is being implanted, inculcated, and ingrained in the young, and will be in those not yet born. It will be reinforced by the intersection of social and racial “justice”, LGBT “rights”, feminism, and environmentalism — did I miss any?

    It’s already happening, evolutionarily. Whites have been reproducing at below-replacement levels for decades, and the tide must change, or the sea will turn to desert.

  22. @Non PC Infidel

    Let me guess — you have a major degree in Asian Studies, with a minor in Prussian Military History. Or maybe the other way around.

  23. @Rational

    That’s the obvious retort, but he’s playing the long game. The idea is being implanted in the young, and the persuasion will be irresistible — not for most, but for s significant percentage, until a tipping point is reached, the point of no return.

    Modern continental philosophy from Derrida onward is, just like modern art, a vacuous pretension.

  25. Saxon says:

    These cowards use this quasi-abstraction of “whiteness” to hide behind some paper-thin plausible deniability that they’re not calling for racial genocide but then when you ask them to define whiteness they always make it clear they’re talking about mass murdering real people.

  26. AnalogMan says:

    He’s White and from South Africa.

    But, interestingly, not in South Africa. So many of these anti-Apartheid White South Africans found it more comfortable and more profitable to rail against Apartheid from a safe, prosperous Western country, even after their dreams came true and Apartheid in SA was abolished.

    Blessedly, I’ll be dead in 10-15 years, almost surely, and perhaps sooner. And I so glad I don’t have children and especially grand children and great grand children. If so, the former would live to see the US transformed into a nonwhite-majority country in which European Americans are an increasingly dispossessed and persecuted minority, and the latter might be enslaved and/or exterminated, unless they commit suicide to escape such a harrific and inexorable fate.

    Seems to me the logical solution to that is to encourage MORE blacks to commit suicide! Isn’t that the rationale they usually apply whenever they find some issue where they think one particular race has some sort of “privilege” that they don’t deserve?

  41. @Non PC Infidel

    If Dr. Hook is suggesting that the exploitation and genocide committed by a previous generation were a virtuous motive for the mass suicide of the present generation, then the Samurai wouldn’t be a good example of that twisted ideology either. The Bushido Code mandated Hari Kari for failing to subdue a foe, not for refusing to coddle them.

    The Japanese Imperial Army commanders only killed themselves when faced with certain defeat. To surrender would have been dishonorable, enemies were given no quarter, civilians were thoroughly subjugated. The Korean “comfort women,” used for recreation by the Japanese soldiers were as young as nine, and, on average, about thirteen years old.

    Does Dr. Demento also suggest that the Japanese should all disembowel themselves for the atrocities perpetrated by their fathers and grandfathers?

  42. @dindunuffins

    There was an incident several years ago in South Africa that involved a White woman being violently car-jacked by the usual suspects. A Black male officer showed up to take her statement. The woman was understandably incensed and frantic and used the Afrikaaner slur ‘kaffir’ to describe the assailants. I think at one point she even called the cop a ‘kaffir’ because she was angered by his indifference to her trauma. The authorities brought this poor woman up on charges of ‘racial insult’ and she was convicted and sentenced to several years in prison. As far as I know the car-jackers were never apprehended. Trevor Noah gloated over this woman being given prison time. He considered it sweet justice. Evidently, he’s one of those ‘free speech for me but not for thee’ types, which is especially disgusting for someone in his line of work.
