Irredeemably stupid?

Those who are working overtime to delegitimize white Americans have coined a term that they use as a weapon — “white privilege.”

The propaganda is that being white is a racial privilege that elevates white Americans above other Americans and enables white people to oppress blacks. It doesn’t strike those who use the term as a weapon that these same “racist white people” are the ones who elected Obama president and put Kamala Harris in the Senate.

“White privilege” conveys the idea that white people have impunity. They can abuse, even kill, people of color without consequence. Yet, it is white officer Chauvin who is in jail charged with the murder of black George Floyd, while the two black Maryland teenagers who murdered 59-year-old white John Weed at the county fair for not giving them a dollar were sentenced by white female judge Julie Stevenson Solt to “anger management training” and “behavior modification” but otherwise unpunished.  Here is the report.

The story was covered locally.

But it was kept out of national news while white Americans were pumped full of guilt for their “racism.”

The story is more than the lack of justice for John Weed and his family. Unlike George Floyd’s relatives who benefited from millions of dollars in donations from white people, money did not pour into the coffers of John Weed’s relatives. Unlike George Floyd’s death, John Weed’s did not become a national sensation.

White supremacists did not riot, loot, and burn their way through black neighborhoods. You were never even told about John Weed’s brutal murder and the pass that white justice gave to the two black thugs who murdered him, spit on his body, and danced around it in glee. So much for “white privilege.”

The outcome of the November election will tell us if Americans are irredeemably stupid.

But judge Julie Solt did much more than deny justice to John Weed and his family. She denied justice in the abstract. Sentencing a murderer to anger management conveys that blacks have impunity from punishment for injurious consequences of their actions.

Obviously,  privilege lies with black Americans. They benefit from racial quotas in employment, promotion, and university admission. There are crimes that only whites can commit and only blacks can suffer. That black teenagers have no qualm about assaulting and beating to death a white man in public at a county fair is proof that blacks are aware of their impunity.

The response to rioting and looting by the mayors of Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, New York, Chicago and other cities have reinforced the belief of blacks that the racism of white people gives them impunity from their illegal actions. The kneeling of elected public officials before Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the imposition of stand-down orders to police, the absence of property protection against looting and destruction, the release without charges of looters, the public apologies made to the criminals by public officials, all of this clearly conveys to blacks the impression that they have impunity.

The impression of impunity that white liberals have given to blacks has obvious implications for public safety and law and order.  This is what you get.

The vicious propaganda in the United States against white people is as bad if not worse than the Nazi propaganda against Jews, and it will have the same result. Indeed, it already has. What is the difference between kristallnacht and the looting and burning of white businesses?  

Theaters, concert halls, and museums in downtown areas of America’s racially diverse cities have an uncertain future. People who live and work in downtown areas and use public transportation will find life increasingly risky. Indeed, cities could collapse as apparently is happening in New York.

What is the difference between kristallnacht and the looting and burning of white businesses?  

The propaganda against white Americans never lets up. We have the anti-white propaganda film, “The Long Shadow,” which defines “social justice” as prevailing over white people. This summer PBS has broadcast this indoctrination film in 50 cities, and a second wave is on its way. It is the kind of film that softens up white people to accept widespread looting and burning as  justified “peaceful protest” over George Floyd’s death, a death that they were never told occurred from Floyd’s overdosing on fentanyl, a dangerous opioid.

The demonization of white people in the United States has reached the point that the media, the universities, and the Democrat Party are anti-white. The Democrats have selected an anti-white “woman of color,” Kamala Harris, as their candidate for vice president. Harris has even called her running mate, Joe Biden, a racist, although she is now backing away from this accusation, accusing him only of being friends with racists in Congress.

If Democrats win, the likelihood of visibly impaired Joe Biden serving four years is slight. He will be succeeded by Harris, and many suspect that is the plan. Biden’s only function is to serve as the way to put an anti-white female of color into the presidency. What comes next? Gun confiscation and defunded police? An open season on white Americans? You might scoff, but this is already the case in sections of some cities.

A racially diverse political entity cannot exist in peace with equal rights and protection of law if one race is taught to hate another, or races are taught to hate one other. In the United States for many years blacks have been taught to hate whites. Blacks and whites are taught that being white is a privilege that prevents social justice. This privilege allegedly comes from whites as slave owners who have continued their dominance over blacks.

In the consciousness that has been created for blacks, whites were the only slave owners and blacks the only slaves. As the syllogism goes, slavery is racism. Therefore, white Americans are racists. This is the lesson in school and university classrooms, and it is the message of The New York Times 1619 Project.

This is not a formula for the success of our racially diverse society. Yet it is the formula that white liberals, white progressives and white leftists have created and institutionalized.  

Donald Trump is especially hated, because he was elected by the “racist white working class,” the “Trump Deplorables.” All propaganda organs are allied against Trump. If white Americans cannot see through the propaganda and put Democrats in control, they will have cut their own throats. The outcome of the November election will tell us if Americans are irredeemably stupid.

  1. This should be required reading for every literate person on the planet. Speaking as an old Gringo with decades of study of history, especially that of the U.S.A., in my past, this article strikes me as completely accurate.

    The upcoming election will be the tell-all of our times.

    1. Ricardo: Alas, there are too many irredeemably stupid people running around the United States because, to a great degree, the educational system is making them that way. But I don’t think stupid is the best adjective. I prefer ignorant. Stupid implies low IQ. Ignorant just means low-information. One can be quite intelligent and still be ignorant.

  2. Very well-written article, the drip, drip of slowly trying to change people’s way of thinking. I couldn’t believe when I read about John Weed and what the judge’s comments were and others trying to justify them.

    There are so many stories leaking out, and I say leaking because most media don’t report them as it doesn’t fit the narrative being pushed by so-called progressives. People deserve peace at home, not just the mayor of Chicago, but the many people in the other areas of her city who she has decided don’t need any reprieve from the protests.

    I hope enough people are seeing the message that is trying to be hidden from them.

  3. I hold the view that the term “white privilege” is racist and offensive because it implies that whatever you might have achieved as a white person was not duly earned. I can scarcely think of a greater affront to those who have worked hard and overcome obstacles to achieve a better life.

    1. P.S. I can scarcely think of a more debilitating message to send to any community, in this case African-American, that your success is entirely dependent on some other group, rather than upon your own efforts. Yes, there’s racism in both the USA and the world. And yes, it’s a problem for Blacks in America. But it is neither the most important problem, nor is it insuperable. But if a person of color spends all his/her time sitting around worrying about white privilege and racism, that person isn’t going to go very far. Those who get up and deal with their obstacles are going to be the winners.

      1. Kim: You are correct, of course. Now let us move on to other matters. Step over there to the woodshed. As I just chastised Marco for calling leftists “liberal,” I must chastise you too. Why? For using African-American. There is nothing African about America’s black citizens. And then you compounded the horror by doing something that almost knocked me off my chair due to its being something so leftist and PC. You capitalized Black and lower-cased white. Jeez, man.

  4. Well, as you know, the pundits are again declaring a Liberal landslide. And I fear they may be correct this time. I see more and more white apologist behavior as well as more blacks demanding”reparations” than ever. It’s a matter of time …

    White males have been declared the new “Nuisance Species.” Like rats, coyotes, and cottontails, you can hunt ’em, shoot ’em, bag ’em. No need for a license, no bag limit, kill as many as you care.

    1. Marco: What do I have to do to convince you and gazillions of other otherwise intelligent people that leftists are NOT “liberal.” Please call spades a spade. They are not “progressive” either. They have hijacked the terms because, in many ways, they are sharper than we are. Do not cooperate. Mind your tongue!

      As for the polls, we shall see. Remember 2016. That gives me optimism and hope. But, as the guest column states, we’ll see how stupid the American public has become.

      It’s a good time to live in Mexico where we do not embrace multiculturalism, which causes strife, and where PC pretty much does not exist except in gatherings of Gringos.

    As for your comment about the person who did not capitalize white yet capitalized African-American or something, has it crossed your mind that perhaps Google automatically lowercases white and did not lowercase African-American? Just a thought.

    P.S.: As I spoke this in my Google voice to text, you can see the results above.

    1. Marco: The exchange was about Kim’s upper-casing Black and lower-casing white. He responded and did not deny it, so I imagine it was his doing, not Google’s. African-America is capitalized, of course, due to being a proper noun.

      But why on earth are you using Google voice text? Avoid that demon enterprise. That’s my advice, and I do it except when it enters the category of cutting off my nose to spite my face. I am addicted to YouTube, a Google outfit. I bet you still use Google Chrome too when there are so many excellent alternatives that are as good or better that are a piece of cake to switch to. I swear. What am I going to do with some of you enablers? What? What? What??? I weep.

  7. Kamala Harris, who is less than half black, seems to be invoking the “one-drop rule,” which I’d thought had gone the way of bans on interracial sex. But what I really don’t understand is how she can be “African-American” when her parents were neither.

    1. Ms. Shoes: I am surprised you don’t know the one-drop rule remains alive and well. However, unlike in the past when one drop was a very bad thing, having one drop now is a very good thing. It makes you all black and deserving of all the present-day advantages. See Barack Obama.

      As for Harris, of course, she is not “African-American,” but since her dad is Jamaican, and Jamaica is a predominantly black nation, she has far more than one drop of that blessed black blood.
