This first appeared on the Leftist wacko site AlterNet back in December and was reprinted by the Leftist wacko site Salon a couple of days later, but as an object lesson in Marxist, culturally degenerate, racialist self-loathing, it just can’t be beat:
The future of life on the planet depends on bringing the 500-year rampage of the white man to a halt. For five centuries his ever more destructive weaponry has become far too common. His widespread and better systems of exploiting other humans and nature dominate the globe.The time for replacing white supremacy with new values is now. And just as some whites played a part in ending slavery, colonialism, Jim Crow segregation, and South African apartheid, there is surely a role whites can play in restraining other whites in this era. Beneath the sound and fury generated by GOP presidential candidates, Fox News, website trolls, police unions and others, white people are becoming aware as never before of past and present racism.
Admittedly, this encouraging development is hardly the dominant view. To the contrary, given the possibility that Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson or one of their ilk might become president, white supremacist ideology seems to be digging in harder than ever.
Funny, my eyes tell me Dr. Carson is black. But hey — white supremacy is everywhere. Everywhere Alexander Fleming’s penicillin is used, or Mozart is played, or Aristotle is studied or Shakespeare is performed or Dickens is read or John Browning’s firearms are employed.
After making the startling discovery that the progressive-era Democrat president, Woodrow Wilson, was a racist (something conservatives have been pointing out for years), the writer goes on to plumb the depths of his historical ignorance and hurt feelings:
The mother of all grand bargains is the U.S. Constitution which accommodated slavery in several ways, including the notorious three-fifths clause. While the Constitution was by no means the first grand bargain, it solidified a pattern that continues to this day. The New Deal, as Ira Katznelson demonstrates in his book Fear Itself, was another grand bargain that combined “progressive’ achievements such as union rights and Social Security with reaffirming the power of Dixiecrats and the institutions of Jim Crow.
Katznelson is white. So am I. So are many others now writing and speaking honestly and openly about the enduring power of white racism. That is valuable because it strengthens the idea that whites can come to terms with reality, past and present, as opposed to the myths we are encouraged to believe. As we do so, another world does become possible.
Nice to the see the Left cracking up like this, victims of their own navel-gazing ideology. While it’s true they’re like children, it’s best to keep in mind that they’re dangerous children, best kept away from sharp objects, electrical sockets, academe and Washington, D.C.
