Si vis pacem, para bellum
I remember the halcyon days of the 90s and 00s when everyone strove to say, “I don’t see race.” Those were the days: a bygone era of relative peace and harmony. Nowadays if you say that you "don't see race" you're attacked for failing to acknowledge that you're an oppressor race and curling into the fetal position. Sure “not seeing race” wasn’t 100% true but treating everyone equally, being timid and demurring when certain black folks brought up their race in a threatening way seemed to work. For every bully who seemed to hate you for being a young white boy there was a chill POC (person of color) who didn't really give a damn. I’ve had several black roommates over the years who’ve been more like brothers to me than my brother by birth. So it was with heavy heart that the “age of identity politics” dragged me kicking and screaming away from this ignorant bliss into an awakened ethnic consciousness. Because over the last ten years the far left activist community, colloquially know as social justice warriors, have been hellbent on militarizing a sizeable pocket of the black community and their ethnomasochistic white allies into a war on everything white: white priviliege, white supremacy, white nationalism and so on. Some of it was real but much of it was imagined. These professional victims swore that racism was all around them but actual examples of it seemed to be serially and hyperbolically exaggerated. Still, their ideas seemed to hold enormous sway during the waning years of the Obama administration. The media jumped at their every accusation of white racism, portraying it at face value with scant evidence and generally failing to follow up if it turned out to be a hoax or if a violent crime was committed against a white person. They divided the country with their constant hunt to prove themselves the victims. We live in their world now.
With SJWs it’s an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth because you better believe they’d do it to you. It’s become a common occurrence that when a white person says something impolitic or simply awkward they are hounded out of their jobs, harassed, threatened and smeared. Take for example the case of Justine Sacco, a PR rep who joked before hopping on a plane to South Africa, “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!” It was an awkward joke; an attempt to be edgy in the hands of an amateur comedienne that fell flat. But it whipped up the social justice hate mob into a frenzy. By the time her plane landed in Cape Town she’d been fired from her job, smeared across the internet, called a bitch, threatened with rape and blackballed from further employment across the world.
SJWs always say that all white people have “privilege”, a magical and immaterial substance that belittles our hardships and dismisses all of our achievements. Everything we’ve ever achieved is portrayed as just a byproduct of our skin color. Yet, somehow with all this “privilege” it is white America that is suffering the most from epidemic levels of depression, prescription drug abuse, heroin abuse and suicide. It is white Americans whose birthrates are precipitously declining while the hispanic population skyrockets due to illegal immigration. By comparison blacks have a higher rate of happiness. They are taught to be confident. All of the schoolbooks, entertainment and revisionist history portray them as plucky underdogs who earn everything over enormous obstacles. The whites are the only ones who are inherently evil and racist. Our great societies, inventions and military achievements are portrayed as ill-gotten and undeservedly won on the backs of others. With so much negative propaganda twisting their minds no wonder white people have so little ethnic identity, so much self-hatred and are so willing lay down and take it when anti-white bullies like Al Sharpton or Wes Bellamy want to shake them down.
Identity politics have become the primary political battleground: are you gay, straight, white, black, Latino, able, disabled, man, woman , or in-between? The Left has pushed the straight, white male vs everyone else narrative to the point that there is almost no issue which is not viewed through this prism. Identity politics have become like a nuclear warhead aimed straight at the heart of white America. A recent Public Religion Research Institute poll found that 44% of Americans surveyed identify discrimination against whites as being just as big as bigotry aimed at blacks and other minorities. Yet the media ignores this growing disatisfaction among whites while focusing like a lightning rod on minority issues. There is a major distinction here between wealthy whites and working class whites. Wealthy whites are more likely to be so-called "limousine liberals" who do not interact with minorites as equals but as charity projects. They assume that since they are white and rich all white people must be just as priviliged. Therefore they excuse black poverty as the result of racism towards blacks while simultaneously spitting on poor whites as ignorant and uneducated. The only reason they aren't similarly wealthy must be because of their own poor decisions! They fail to ascribe this same agency to other ethnic groups. Thus limousine liberal whites are among the most racist anti-whites of the whole bunch. They almost exclusively advocate immigration, trade and affirmative action policies which harm the working class white segment of the country.
The minority coalition, whipped into an anti-white hysteria by opportunistic Democratic politicians, use this weapon of mass destruction to bully the majority and get their way. Look at the situation on the Mizzou campus where a black activist, Payton Head, who had visited Obama’s White House on multiple occasions claimed that he had been the victim of a “hate crime”: someone supposedly drove by him in a truck and called him the n-word. On the basis of this undocumented incident (and a supposed poop swastika drawn on his bathroom mirror) he demanded that the white university president step down and be replaced by an Afrocentric Black Lives Matter supporter. His Black Lives Matter cohorts drew up a list including further demands like hiring preferences for black professors, further admission benefits for black students and tens of thousands of dollars in appropriations for “diversity” re-education departments and courses. The university president gave in to the blackmail and stepped down even though he had nothing to do with the alleged name calling other than being a white man.
These SJWS are like a lone nuclear superpower extorting their neighbors with threats of nuclear annihilation. Time and time again whites and conservatives back down when the shoe is on the other foot. No more. In nuclear “game theory” there is a principle of mutually assured destruction which holds that when there are two or more armed states both would be completely annihilated if weapons were deployed. Yet the beautiful consequence is that none will dare to use the terrible weapon for fear of swift and devastating reprisal. In game theory this is known as the Nash Equilibrium. As scary as this principle sounds it has prevented the detonation of nuclear weapons in an act of war for around 70 years. In other words to create peace we must prepare for war. Identity politics is a genie that once released from the bottle can never be returned. Therefore it is with grim determination that the dwindling white majority must join in in practicing ethnic solidarity to combat the growing rancor directed at them by the forces of the extreme political Left.
This does not mean that in our private lives we cannot hold onto the innocent principle that “we don’t see race” to some degree. This is what feels good and feels right when we are dealing with our friends and with amiable strangers. We must still strive to treat others fairly and equitably no matter their “identity”. That is the American way, not as these revisionist historians portray it, but the way I grew up understanding it to be. But make no mistake, the age of innocence is over for whites politically. We are becoming a displaced minority in our own country thanks to Democrat policies. They tax the hell out of middle class families who might want to have more children while paying for welfare queens to have 5 or 6 babies they can't support. They provide sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants who flood in from south of the border and import Islamists from the most dangerous countries on Earth. The time for supplication is over. We need to fight back! We must fight to heal the wounds of our nation. Si vis pacem, para bellum.
