The Left’s Message: We Will Replace You

Robert Hampton, American Renaissance, August 20, 2019

Contempt for whites is mainstream. Cable news pundits, influential Democrats, and newspaper columnists happily promote white replacement.

Last week, black AboveTheLaw editor and frequent MSNBC guest Elie Mystal called for the subjugation of white Donald Trump supporters. “You don’t communicate to them, you beat them,” he said on AM Joy. “You beat them. They are not a majority of this country—the majority of white people in this country are not a majority of the country. . . . You do not negotiate with these people, you destroy them.”

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper recently looked forward to whites becoming a minority: “The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s—it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways.”

His guest, Univision host Jorge Ramos, agreed. “There’s nothing really they can do against this incredible demographic revolution,” he said.

A week before, actress Rosanna Arquette tweeted: “I’m sorry I was born white and privileged. It disgusts me. And I feel so much shame.” She later claimed the FBI advised her to lock her Twitter account due to the backlash.

Liberals insist white supremacy dominates America. If that were true, those of us who write openly about the great replacement and the rights of whites would be honored and enriched. The corporate media would condemn anyone who insulted whites. Employers would fire them. Instead, anti-white racism can advance your career. Just ask Sarah Jeong, a New York Times editorial board member who got her job despite (or because of) her anti-white tweets.

Miss Arquette suffered nothing besides a few angry tweets. Mr. Cooper still hosts his show and will probably devote more segments to the wonders of a non-white America. Mr. Mystal will still appear on MSNBC, despite his desire to “destroy” most white Americans and his demand for “pitchforks and torches” outside the house of a man who was holding a Trump fund-raiser.

Democrat presidential candidates don’t sound much different. Julian Castro warned about demographic change: “The Hispanic vote in Texas will continue to increase. By 2024 Democrats can win Texas, Arizona and Florida. A big blue wall of 78 electoral votes.”

California Sen. Kamala Harris wants to pour resources into fighting “global white nationalist terrorism.” She is also promoting a “domestic terrorism” plan that would give federal judges the power temporarily to take away someone’s firearms if he were showing “clear evidence of dangerousness.” It is not hard to imagine dissenting opinions counting as “clear evidence of dangerousness,” in which case millions could lose their guns

In July, a white working-class white mother from Ohio asked presidential candidate and New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a question: “this is an area that across all demographics has been depressed because of the loss of its industry and the opioids crisis. So what do you have to say to people in this area about so-called white privilege?” The senator’s reply:

[I]nstitutional racism is real. It doesn’t take away your pain or suffering. It’s just a different issue. . . . Your son will likely not have to deal with that because he is white. So when someone says white privilege, that is all they are talking about. That his whiteness will mean that a police officer might give him a second chance. It might mean that he doesn’t get incarcerated because he had just smoked a joint with his girlfriend. It might mean that he won’t have to post bail. It means he might be able to show up to work the next day and [not] lose his job and not be in the cycle of poverty that never ends.

The audience reportedly applauded.

At the July Democrat presidential debate, Sen. Gillibrand claimed she could explain white privilege “to white women in the suburbs.” “As a white woman of privilege who is a US senator, it is also my responsibility to lift up non-white voices,” she said.

Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke apologized for being white when he announced he was running for the nomination: “The government at all levels is overly represented by white men. That’s part of the problem, and I’m a white man.”

Last month, Mr. O’Rourke argued that America was “founded on white supremacy” and claimed that “every single institution and structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression even in our democracy.”

Presidential candidate and Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton claims that “if this country wasn’t racist, Stacey Abrams [a black Democratic gubernatorial candidate for Georgia] would be governor.”

Bernie Sanders recently promised: “We will go to war against white nationalism.”

Democrats not running for president aren’t much different. Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar warned in May that America “is not going to be the country of white people.” She has also said that we should be more afraid of white men than Islamists, and that “we should be profiling, monitoring, and creating policies to fight the radicalization of white men.”

Some liberal journalists are also using, violent or “eliminationist” language. As Mother Jones writer Kevin Drum recently wrote: “Reactionary American whites, as always, won’t give up their power unless it’s taken from them by either a literal or figurative war.”

Ahead of the 2018 election, columnist Michelle Goldberg wrote a column in the New York Times called: “We Can Replace Them:”

Right now America is tearing itself apart as an embittered white conservative minority clings to power, terrified at being swamped by a new multicultural polyglot majority. . . . American voters can do to white nationalists what they fear most. Show them they’re being replaced.

Progressive journalists often claim that the “Great Replacement” is a “conspiracy theory.” It’s a conspiracy theory if you don’t want to be replaced; if you think we should be replaced, you can recognize and even praise it.

Contempt for us will not decline as our numbers decline. It will get worse. We are the devil figures the Left needs to keep its uneasy coalition together.

The elites don’t even hide it: They want to replace us.
