They Really Do Hate Us
Jared Taylor, American Renaissance, December 4, 2020
We have to take them at their word.
Last week, Joe Biden called for unity during his Thanksgiving address. “I believe this grim season of division and demonization is going to give way to a year of light and unity,” he said. His fellow Democrats aren’t buying it. They want more demonization.
Wajahat Ali, a regular opinion writer for the New York Times, wrote an article called “‘Reach Out to Trump Supporters,’ They Said. I Tried. I give up.” As he explained, “We cannot help people who refuse to help themselves.” “Don’t waste your time.” His solution? More internet censorship, so fewer of us will become irredeemable.
Jennifer Rubin writes for the Washington Post and is an MSNBC commentator. Her view was, “We have to collectively in essence burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them because if there are survivors, if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again.” “There will be no survivors.” That’s what Santa Ana told the defenders of the Alamo.
There is a serious plan to punish anyone who ever had anything to do with Donald Trump. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wanted to know:
Someone named Hari Sevugan answered her directly: “You better believe it. We just launched the Trump Accountability Project to make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did.
The Trump Accountability Project has gone private, but it made a list of people to punish. They must never get a book or a TV contract, never get a political job, never be accepted in polite society. Leslie McAdoo Gordon copied the list while it was still public and counted 1,202 names on it. It wasn’t just donors and cabinet secretaries. There were low-level assistants, even stenographers. These are just a few of the names on the enemies list.
Television commentator Keith Olberman said in a video that “The terrorist Trump must be defeated, must be destroyed, must be devoured at the ballot box,” and then that “his enablers and his supporters and his collaborators . . . must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society.”
Chris Hayes of MSNBC proposed “some kind of truth and reconciliation commission,” like the one in South Africa after the change to black rule. People could confess crimes, including murder, and seek amnesty. I guess Trump supporters would be let back into society if they confessed. Except that as never-Trumper Bill Kristol explained, “How about truth and no reconciliation?”
That’s the mentality in a Huffpost article called “No, I Will Not be ‘Reaching Out” to Trump Voters, Now or Ever.” The author accused Trump of “atrocities,” and said of his supporters: “I will not forget, and I certainly will not forgive.”
Teen Vogue, which often sounds like the house organ for Maoist youth, scorned Joe Biden’s call for unity. Author Kandist Mallet wanted to know: “Why are we still acting like we can get along with these people — meaning Trump voters – or would we even want to?”
The New York Times published a long article full of fantasies about how to torment and humiliate Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner if they ever dare to come back to live in New York. It is a truly venomous article.
I don’t like to impute motives to people, but I’m afraid we have to take these folks at their word: They hate us. It means they hate 74 million US citizens who voted for Donald Trump. Those 74 million people include a majority of white voters – the kind of people who built this country, gave it its institutions, and made it great.
There have been only a few times in the history of this country when there were calls for vicious retribution of the kind Democrats want. After the Civil War, Maryland, Arkansas, and Tennessee stripped voting rights from anyone who fought for the South. Missouri did that during the war. From the way they talk, it sounds as though a lot of Democrats would do the same to Trump supporters if they could.
During the Revolutionary War, mobs sometimes tarred and feathered people who were loyal to the king, and many loyalists fled to Canada and the West Indies. Is tarring and feathering Tories that much different from the mobs of antifa that have repeatedly attacked Trump supporters?
In the past, you didn’t get this level of mass hatred without war. Now, political division is as ruthless as war. It’s not just mobs that tear down statues of Columbus. Local governments do it. Major media, universities, church leaders, and local governments tell us that Thanksgiving Day should be a time of sorrow and repentance, that American history is a succession of crimes, that our country should be up for grabs to foreigners from everywhere, and that white people can never be cured of the terrible affliction of whiteness. The people who preach this are furious that 74 million people voted for the man they told us is a fascist.
Liberal hatred for America – especially white America – has been building for a long time. Donald Trump just brought it to the surface. If you are one of the 74 million, it means that many of your fellow citizens despise you. They think you are deplorable, morally defective. This isn’t political disagreement. This is not “loyal opposition.” This is irreconcilable difference, un unbridgeable gap between people who loved America the way it was, and people who hate it.
There is only one solution. And I’ll talk about it next week.
