If ‘White Rage’ Is a Medical Condition, How Do You Catch It?

Tucker Carlson, Fox News, June 24, 2021


In the universities, it has become an article of faith that, were it not for the indelible stain of Whiteness, America could be a utopia. Only Whiteness stands in the way. That’s why we must abolish it. As Harvard magazine put it, “Abolish the White Race.” Only then can we be happy. Lots of people seem to believe this. They’re not all bad people {snip} It’s their leaders you wonder about. They do know better, or they should. And when they talk about this new iteration of scientific racism — when they talk about “whiteness” — they sound like old-fashioned bigots.

This guy for example. His name is Eric Michael Dyson. He’s a tenured professor at some stupid college or other. He lives in a rich, almost exclusively white neighborhood. He goes on TV a lot. Read what he says about race, and ask yourself if he sounds any different from Bull Conner or David Duke. Only the colors have changed.

MICHAEL DYSON: In speaking about, you know, the maggots – I’m sorry, the MAGA – that is so corrosive in this political moment. … And we have stood by to see mediocre, mealy-mouthed snowflake white men who are incapable of taking critique, who are willing to dole out infamous repudiations of the humanity of the other. And yet they call us snowflakes, and they are the biggest flakes of snow to hit the Earth. They are incapable of criticism. They are incapable of tolerating difference. They’re scared of, “Oh, my god, critical race theory is going to kill your mother.” And they don’t even know. They are not critical, they have no race, and they don’t understand theory.


{snip}When you hear people ascribe blood guilt to a specific racial group — when you hear them talk about the sin of Whiteness — what you’re watching is the death of our future as a country. We can’t live in a nation of warring tribes. We know very well what that looks like. It’s the history of the world. It’s bloody and miserable and vicious. We can’t allow that.

Most Americans of all colors on some level understand this. They don’t always have the words to articulate it. Their kids come home with school assignments that suggest all races are not, in fact, equal. Some races are guilty, and some are innocent. Some groups are oppressors, and others are oppressed.

In the universities, this is called “critical race theory,” so that’s the term many people go with. “Critical race theory” — that’s what we so often debate on TV. But it’s an inaccurate way to describe what’s happening. Like so much academic jargon, the phrase “critical race theory” doesn’t mean anything. It obscures, rather than illuminates. It’s designed to confuse you. What’s happening in our schools and our military and our government is both simpler and easier to recognize than that. It’s not critical race theory. It’s racism. Not “neo-racism” or “reverse racism.” Those are meaningless terms. It’s race hate, peddled by the people in charge in the hope it’ll make them more powerful. That’s all it is.

We haven’t said that often enough or clearly enough. And because we haven’t — because we’ve been tied up in some pointless debate about a concept nobody can actually define — the race hate, and that’s what it is, has oozed from the universities and infected the entire country, including at the highest levels.

Mark Milley is the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. {snip} Yesterday, the man in charge of the nation’s weapons, explaining that he’s working to understand a concept called “White rage:”

MILLEY: I do think it’s important, actually, for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and be widely read. And it is important that we train and we understand. I want to understand White rage, and I’m white, I want to understand it. So what is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America? {snip}

{snip} Notice he never defined White rage, and we should know what it is. What is White rage? {snip} It’s a race-specific illness. That’s what Mark Milley has learned from reading about it. That’s why he’s making his soldiers read about it too. They need to know.


{snip} The question, how do we get out of this vortex before it’s too late? How do we save the country before we become Rwanda? What should we be teaching our children, so that they can live in a country that you want to live in, one full of many different kinds of people who actually like each other, who can work together, who are united by the fact that they are all Americans?  That’s the question.
