Most-Racial America

James Taranto, Wall Street Journal, November 26, 2012

“Everytime [sic] I think the Democratic race card players could not get more vile, more deranged, more patronizingly demeaning to blacks, someone manages to defy even my vivid imagination,” thunders blogger William Jacobson. He’s referring to a passage in a Washington Post editorial about critics of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice—a passage that in our view is useful for its clarity.

At issue is a Nov. 19 letter to the President Obama, written by Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina and signed by 97 House Republicans, which declares that the signatories are “deeply troubled” that the president is considering nominating Rice secretary of state, and that they “strongly oppose” such a nomination.

“Ambassador Rice is widely viewed as having either willfully or incompetently misled the American public in the Benghazi matter,” the letter states. We noted Tuesday with some amusement that Rep. Jim Clyburn, a South Carolina Democrat and member of the Congressional Black Caucus, was claiming that “incompetent” was the latest code word for “black.”

The Post focuses on the critics rather than their choice of words. Here’s the passage that outrages Jacobson: “Could it be, as members of the Congressional Black Caucus are charging, that the signatories of the letter are targeting Ms. Rice because she is an African American woman? The signatories deny that, and we can’t know their hearts. What we do know is that more than 80 of the signatories are white males, and nearly half are from states of the former Confederacy.”

Let’s examine this argument carefully. The Post acknowledges that “we can’t know their hearts.” But it finds a (literally) prima facie reason to suspect them of invidious motives: Almost all of them are persons of pallor. The Post is casting aspersions on Duncan and his colleagues based explicitly on the color of their skin. And it is accusing them of racism!

A couple of other items related to race and politics caught our attention over the Thanksgiving weekend. First, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., an Illinois Democrat and CBC member, resigned from Congress “amid federal ethics investigations and a diagnosis of mental illness,” as the Chicago Tribune reports. That sets up a special election to fill the vacancy:

Some Democrats quickly offered to broker a nominee to avoid several African-American contenders splitting the vote in the heavily Democratic and majority black 2nd Congressional District, which could allow a white candidate to win.

This passes with neither editorial comment nor a disapproving quote. It’s hard to imagine the same absence of reaction if a group of pols offered “to broker a nominee” with the goal of preventing a black candidate from winning a white-majority district.

The danger for the country is that a racially polarized electorate will produce a hostile, balkanized culture. In 2008 Obama held out the hope of a postracial America. His re-election raises the possibility of a most-racial America.

    I approve. The more they talk about race, and the more insane their talk gets, the less likely it will be to tell us that we can’t talk about race in the way we want to talk about it. (But that won’t stop them from trying to enforce the double standard)

    • Stentorian_Commentator

      I agree with your statement, but I recently read an interesting point by someone who stated that there really is not a double standard when it comes to race. Rather, there is a single standard, which is, Bleep you, whitey! Screw whitey! Whatever is good for whitey is bad and whatever is bad for whitey is good! I think that person is right.

        Never call it reverse racism. Just call it what it is. Racism.

      • pcmustgo

        It’s ending though. 40% OF WHITES, 60% OF WHITES AGES 20-30 THINK WHITES ARE THE BIGGEST VICTIMS OF RACISM? Does that tell you anything?

          Is that statistic from the story? It’s very interesting. And these are people who actually made it through public school and college brainwashing that what they were seeing wasn’t actually happening.

          Not from what I am seeing in posts. Lots of young whites hate whites, they will side with nonwhites over whites, they think whites who are attacked by blacks did something to deserve it, etc.

        In fact, they are nothing but the uncrowned beast of the field. Blacks are about the only bipeds that do not have a crown on the head. As the saying goes: “You can take the k@ffir out of the bush but you can’t take the bush out of the k@ffir”.

      Puggg: You are largely correct, but the GOP can benefit from the democrat party’s insanity only if they refuse to become the democrat-lite party. If they begin aping democrat party policies and behaviours, their primary reason for even existing is gone.

      • Puggg

        I wasn’t thinking of the GOPee when I said that. My emphasis is that if the kook left and the race-denying mainstream right get too insane in their anti-white rhetoric, eventually it will whittle away at the inhibitions of racially minded or inclined white people to start going racial. And eventually, or to put it a better way, hopefully, some astute whore politician will pick up on the groundswell and try to exploit that constituency. The first such one that wins based on that will break the dam forever.

    “The danger for the country is that a racially polarized electorate will produce a hostile, balkanized culture. ”

    ===

    Astonishing hypocrisy. Taranto’s newspaper — by the sheer incompetence and arrogance of its editorial staff — did more to create today’s “racial polarized electorate” than any other — including the New York Times. From Wikipedia:

    Robert Leroy Bartley (October 12, 1937 – December 10, 2003) was the editor of the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal for more than 30 years . . .

    Alongside his support for the free flow of goods, Bartley supported the free flow of labor across borders. He controversially wrote in favor of open borders and high rates of immigration to the United States. After then Mexican President, Vicente Fox, declared in a speech in 2001
    that “NAFTA should evolve into something like the European Union, with open borders for not only goods and investment but also people”, Bartley wrote in support of having open borders between Mexico and the United States. Indeed, in that July 2, 2001 Wall Street Journal editorial, Bartley reminded readers that “during the immigration debate of 1984 we suggested an ultimate goal to
    guide passing policies—a constitutional amendment: ‘There shall be open borders.'”

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/NQHEAYZCMBOERHG2VZRDQ3YUSQ Felix

      The saddest part is that while Bartley may have understood business, he was completely unaware of what it takes to make a society or a country. Given his ignorance with regard to those very basic thing and despite all his sophistication and education, he was as helpless and unhelpful as a babe in the woods.

    Whites split their vote, that is the reason for the failure. And demographically Whites lose ground every election cycle and the youth population is WILDLY non-White. This is a CIVIL WAR between the “progressives” who hate their fellow Whites with a virulence that has to be EXPERIENCED to be believed. Race Realists can clean this mess up very easily once the SWPL types are history. Remember Cortes the great White explorer with a mere 25 men defeated the Aztec empire. Note of historical interest Cortes and his men did NOT use armor, too hot in Mexico.

    • pcmustgo

      Sweetie, those “progressives” wouldn’t be progressives if they had experienced all the anti-white hatred we did, over and over again over a certain amount of time…. They hate their fellow whites- until they are hated by non-whites….

      Don’t you get it? You MUST experience non-white hatred to embrace and defend your whiteness?

      between the “progressives” who hate their fellow Whites with a virulence that has to be EXPERIENCED to be believed.

      • Liberalsuck

        I know someone who told me that they couldn’t understand why people ‘didn’t care for blacks’ or why they wanted to not be around them and why the South was ‘racist’ until they moved from an all white environment growing up to a diverse city and had to be around blacks all day and suffering the racial taunts.

    • seek

      The sad thing is that a lot of these white self-haters are Tea Party-style “conservatives.” They hate “racism” with a vengeance so long as liberals are guilty of it — hence, the idiotic term “liberal racism.” The Red State redneck messages on Town Hall have to be read to be believed. Truly, in their naivete, as well as McCarthyism, they are Rush Limbaugh’s children.

      • Libearlsuck

        I think many of those conservatives are more fearful of being called racists and want to make their message more appealing, so they will try to be ‘hip’ by including blacks and saying “We hate racism!” Many of those white conservatives don’t like where things are going and I think deep down many of them know a multiracial society won’t work.

    • Liberalsuck

      Whites usually vote with our feet. As our cities got darker, we left. As the states got darker, we left. As the country gets darker, we will eventually break off a piece of territory for whites only. the question is, will future whites have the weapons, fortitude and guts to fight for their survival? That is a thought that keeps me up at night these days. I really fear for our nation, the West, our people.

    Just another worthless CONservative article that pretends that blacks are the chief victims of liberalism’s genocidal racism aimed at whites.

    I thought “incompetent” was an adjective favored by those who mentioned George W. Bush.

      Speaking While White Is A Hate Crime,

      but you won’t be punished as severly as long as you are blaming Whitey for historical injustices and demanding we “do more” for African Americans, such as passionately promoting Diversity into every part of your “too White” lifestyle.

      Then maybe America’s first black president was really George W. Bush.

    After this election, I can’t feel sorry for twentysomething whites getting passed over for jobs and promotions. I can tell by looking at the videos of whites getting robbed and beaten, that most of them are of the liberal persuasion.
    They are dumb enough to believe The Lie, so they can reap the benefits.

        Maybe this explains a lot about Paul Ryan and William Cohen.

      The fact is that many of those twentysomething Whites you refer to are arch liberal trust fund babies who were camping out at occupy Wall Street last fall. Many of the are about as anti-White interests as you can get.

      • Liberalsuck

        Those young whites I saw at Occupy are a disgrace to everything most whites used to be like in the past. They are nothing but a bunch of losers, drug users, freeloaders, parasites, angry and think the world owes them something. If a race war breaks out, the blacks and mexicans can have those loser liberal whites. LOL

      It is not as many as this Gen Xer would like, but the next generation is salvageable in my estimation.

      • Liberalsuck

        True, true. In the 1960s the young whites then thought they were special, but many of them nowadays (I would suspect) have become more conservative and have seen the multicultural, communist utopia they were spoonfed back then isn’t all it was cracked up to be. What’s that saying? If you are 20 and a conservative, you have no heart. If you are 40 and a liberal, you have no brain.

    • Liberalsuck

      Lots of these young whites voted for Obama I bet and many of them will rip on fellow whites. I think these young whites will have to see things get really bad before they wake up like we have. You also have to remember young white people are more likely to be liberal since they are more idealistic than older whites are. They don’t realize what the real world really is other than what Hollywood, the media and their liberal professors tell them.

  • You Are Now Enriched

    We welcome and approve of the news that race is taking center stage of everything.

    The White community has some hard lessons ahead of it, and the more mau mau the Diversity becomes, the sooner we will start learning what Africa has to teach us…

    “The danger for the country is that a racially polarized electorate will produce a hostile, balkanized culture”
    Of course, this is a given. Multiculturalism and multiracial societies don’t work. It is NO accident that the US is deteriorating at the same time that multiracialism is accelerating. A house divided can’t stand.

      That case I think is wrong. I even read it in full to make sure it wasn’t another Trayvon Martin case.

What I dislike is the media and the anti-white bigots agenda here. We all know why they are reporting this story.

      What vehemently racist behavior? That is a disgustingly vague accusation.

      • Liberalsuck

        A white person holding a job and saving their money is ‘vehemently racist behavior’ to these liberals and anti-white bigots. A white person defending themselves from a black criminal is probably ‘vehemently racist behavior’ to them. Celebrating Thanksgiving and eating white turkey meat is probably considered ‘vehemently racist behavior’ to these deranged, pitiful creatures as well.

    • LaSantaHermandad

      Yes guest. I don’t know where you get your information. Can either you or Penelope cite the last time a Black suffered vehemently racist behavior? You COULD cite the James Byrd incident. The perpetrators got the death penalty. We’re still supporting the Karr /Carr? brothers for the Wichita massacre, and Letalvus and Lemaricus are eating three squares a day and working out in the prison gym while Leonard Pitts (appropriate surname) of the Miami Herald ended his discussion of the Knoxville atrocity with ” Cry me a river”. Can you imagine a White columnist using that statement to end a commentary on the James Byrd case and still have a job the next morning? If you’re keeping score on inter racial crime, Blacks have certainly taken the lead. There were lots of lynchings of Italo-Americans in the South (Louisiana) during that period but we hear nothing about that.

Its fight the good fight or die or be rubbed out of existence by evil in the WH who cared less about 4 whites dying in Benghazi and clearly allowed in to happen maybe due the 257 demands for protection. This is the same scenario with black police chiefs who will only protect their own blacks and pretend to help or lie about whites being protected who pay all the taxes to pay their salaries.
    1001 odds Obama would have sent immediate help had those been 4 blacks instead of 4 whites but this is the Amerika you live in today so you better fight the liberal white scum to reverse this atrocity.

    We need our White nationalists leaders to come together and to do it now. Everyone from Pat Buchanan to David Duke, everyone. We need this type of organization and the planning that comes from it.

    Our leaders are getting older, Kevin MacDonald, Pat Buchanan etc, we need all of our leaders to create an organization that will be able to carry on. Our young people have no idea of what is being taken from them.

    I remember a satellite hookup with Russia during one of the space missions, this was before the wall came down. A little Russian girl boldly asked in a defiant and mocking way, if our astronauts had seen God in space.

    She was not old enough to remember the great Cathedrals of Russia or the Czar and his Christian family murdered and the holodomer and all the rest. This is not their first rodeo and they are doing to us what they did to Russians.

    Our leaders need to create an organization and work together and we need this now.

      The young generation of whites need to be liberated from false indoctrination, and from the “sex, drugs and rock&rap” culture.
