“Europeans Abolished Slavery; Africans/Muslims Still Practice It” is the current column, now on FrontPage Magazine.
The column was adapted from the book Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America From Post-Apartheid South Africa (2011).
Among the column’s observations:
More than engendering a cult of apology, the Atlantic slave trade has been instrumental in the effort to control and define the past as an ‘aspect of current politics,’ not least in shaping the historical treatment of the Civil War, the South, and the American Founding Fathers. … ritual apologies are empty ploys, which ‘all too often conform to fatuous arguments about ‘closure,’ resolution, and being unable to move on until we acknowledge the past.’ In reality, this bowing-and-scraping, by obsequious Anglo-Americans, to their black political overlords, entails the opposite of all these, and, instead, involves the reiteration and institutionalization of racial grievance. …
It’s good to hear commentators, these days, echoing The Cannibal, which was ahead of its time.
At the time, bar the good people who provided advance praise for it, none would review The Cannibal, or interview its author about it.
As its most astute reviewer, Jack Kerwick, noted, while Into The Cannibal’s Pot is analytical (as the work done here generally is), it was highly personal. The book was excruciating to write.
In any event, it’s satisfying to hear that The Cannibal has been deployed by immigration attorneys (the good ones), in making their case for white South African asylum-seekers.
Other than The Unz Review and Townhall.com, FrontPage Magazine is, indubitably, now cutting-edge courage on matters Muslim and racial. (The “rest” don’t publish this column, as a matter of policy, so probably don’t rate a mention.)
Incidentally, the column linked to Townhall.com (“Emasculated West Primed For Muscular, Muslim Takeover”) was adapted from the latest book, The Trump Revolution. Why wait years to engage with its observations?
