Whittle Wisdom

BILL WHITTLE looks back at almost eight years of the worst presidency in U.S. history.

Meanwhile, Weepy Barry decides not to disparage criminals. It’s just not nice.

Tread with caution

WITH ALL THE condemnation of Western Civilization — read white people — currently bouncing about the Western world, one wonders if anyone has considered the alternatives.

If the multiculturalists and diversity worshipers manage to stomp out Western Civilization, we’ll need another of the world’s civilizations to replace it, right?

We cannot live in a void, and starting a culture from scratch would be dicey. God knows what we’d end up with.

Being a Mexican, I’m inclined to look first at the Latino world. Should Western Civilization be replaced by the cultures of, say, Guatemala, Bolivia, Paraguay or Honduras?

I don’t think you’d like that very much.

So let’s move on to Africa. Should Western Civilization be replaced by the likes of Uganda, Cameroon, Chad or Rwanda? Those are very different cultures. Perhaps interesting places to visit, but would you wish to live there?

Don’t bet on it.

Well, let’s look at the Middle East. Apart from Israel, which is a Western Civilization transplant to a large degree, the Middle East is ruled mostly by Mohammedans, and they won’t let women drive cars or walk outside without a sheet. They toss homosexuals off buildings and behead infidels.

If you think the Mideast culture — aside from democratic Israel — merits copying, well, there’s no hope for you.

You are a knucklehead.

Asia? Maybe we’ll find a superior culture there. There’s communist Vietnam, communist China, dictatorial Burma, chaotic India, despotic Russia, or maybe vociferously unicultural Japan which loathes diversity.

Which of these often-dreadful cultures  would you like to see replace Western Civilization?

If you think Donald Trump is bad or Barack Obama or Ted Cruz or George W. Bush or Hillary Clinton or Bernie, remember who other cultures have placed in their catbird seats:

Kim Jong-un, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez, Vladimir Putin, Augusto Pinochet, Evo Morales, Mao Zedong, Saddam Hussein.

The list goes on and on.

Okay, so forget foreign cultures. Let’s stick to America, specifically Native Americans, peace-loving people cultivating the land, at one with the universe. Kumbaya in buckskins.

Let’s return to our original culture.

indianFirst, you might want to read Empire of the Summer Moon. You’ll be thanking God you weren’t born a Comanche. Or worse: an opposing tribe.

Be careful what you criticize. Tread with caution.

Because you’ve never had it so good. All U.S. citizens are “privileged” no matter the color of their skin.

The race obsession

WERE IT NOT so disruptive and destructive, the seething obsession with race in the United States would be hilarious.

blackDo most nations do this? No. It exists almost exclusively in the white man’s world, and it’s something the white man is doing to himself, self-abuse, gleefully abetted by blacks.

Are citizens daily hurling accusations of racism at fellow citizens in China, Russia, Bolivia, Kenya, Israel, ad nauseam? Of course not.

Slavery caused it, you might say. But slavery existed in South America too. Slavery has existed throughout human history in almost all corners of the globe, and it still exists in some zones.  People with all manner of skin tones, including white people, have been slaves.

Yet this perpetual hurling of “You’re a racist!” is almost exclusively contained nowadays in societies dubbed liberal democracies.

mariaIt is a political tool used by leftists. Sure, conservatives fling it on occasion too, but that’s because it’s a filthy habit they’ve picked up from leftists. It’s become so common that everybody uses it. It’s now a late-stage cancer eating the innards of society.

The cancer is not racism itself — not at all — but the constant hurling of the epithet and the grievous damage it’s causing.

Racism is part of human nature, and always will be. People, many of whom are not too bright, look askance at those who are different. You will never, ever stop this. You must live with it, and try to ease its effects as much as possible, occasionally with sensible laws.

blondeTragically, the racism epithet is rotting American society, and it’s a dreadful thing to witness from down where I live.

Were it possible, I would come up there and rap you all across the knuckles with a hardwood cane. I would do it until you’re bloody and howling with pain. It would be good and just.
