We Don’t Want Amazon to Own the Post Office

Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, April 14, 2020

The coronavirus crisis hasn’t hurt Amazon. The company recently announced it is hiring another 75,000 workers. Its stock is climbing. Its deliveries are indispensable when lockdowns are keeping people from stores. The US Postal Service competes with Amazon, but without more federal help, it will be “financially illiquid” by September 30. Some conservatives reportedly want to privatize the post office; Amazon might buy it.

This would be a disaster for white advocates. Amazon already bans books by white advocates, including Jared Taylor’s White Identity. A privatized post office might ban our fundraising letters, magazines, or book deliveries. Conservatives wouldn’t object; they would say a private company can do whatever it wants. Conservatives benefit from censorship because it means frustrated whites have no alternative to them.

White advocates can no longer assume we can use private shipping or banking. That’s why I support a “progressive” proposal for the post office to offer basic banking services. Newsweek says it would help “communities of color,” but if private banks begin to cut off white advocates, it would help us even more. Non-whites like to claim they are oppressed, but we actually are. There’s no cost to blaming white people, criticizing the President, or promoting far-left views. In contrast, we can’t even have Twitter or PayPal accounts.

Woke Capital” is a real threat. Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg can ban us from essential services, and there’s nothing we can do about it. State and federal governments are forbidden to discriminate against us, even though we’ve had to fight the State of Tennessee to force it to let us use a state park for our conferences.

Unfortunately, “critical race theory” is now influencing legal decisions, so we can’t assume public institutions will continue to serve us, but for now, we should support public institutions rather than private ones. This is only because we need time to build our own private institutions. Ultimately, we will probably have to own our own conference spaces and credit unions. “Build your own platform” has already become “build your own Internet,” “build your own postal system,” and “build your own financial system.” It will end with “build your own country.”

Someday, we’ll have to thank our oppressors for leaving us no other option than securing a homeland for ourselves.
