Dick Cavett And Enoch Powell: Civilized, Edifying Discussion That Would Never Take Place Today

America, Britain, IMMIGRATION, Race, Racism, Reason

“‘Racist’ is one of the modern terms of abuse,” Enoch Powell tells Dick Cavett. “The term of abuse is more effective the less defined it is. Then you can throw it at anybody and anything.”

“It all sounds reasonable,” replies Cavett, to Mr. Powell’s lucid explanation as to the question of which people belonged in England, given the British Empire’s reach and diffuse definition of citizen vs. subject.

I’ve repeatedly made the point in columns and to my friend David Vance, who lives in the UK, that all the racial nonsense the British are agonizing over is imported from America—doesn’t belong in Britain—so I love that this is Powell’s first point: The race baggage is American; not British.

Before him, explained Powell, nobody in government had cared enough to give voice to the sorrow Britons were feeling to over the possibility of losing their home, England, as they knew it. Powell was giving context to his 1968, “rivers of blood” speech.

British Government And Their ‘Racist’ Voter ID Laws

Britain, Elections, Race, Racism

From the fact that “personation—pretending to be somebody else” for the purpose of voting in their stead—is not a serious problem is the UK, it doesn’t mean that voters should not be asked to identify themselves at the ballot box. What could be simpler and fairer than that?

More total white supremacy, via The Economist:

the government judges the threat to the democratic process sufficient to warrant a big change to electoral rules. On May 11th it announced that it will legislate to require in-person voters to show photo ID. This is trickier in Britain, which does not require people to carry ID cards, than in countries which do. Driving licences and passports will be acceptable; so will pensioners’ bus passes and the “blue badges” held by disabled people. Anyone without approved photo ID will be allowed to apply for a free card.

Such a change would not block many people from voting. Seven local authorities asked voters for various forms of identification in May 2019, after warning that they would be doing so. On average, 0.4% of would-be voters who were asked for ID failed to show it, were turned away, and did not return to the polling station. ….

UPDATED (6/4/021): 2 NEW Videos: Distinguish Critical Race Theory From Marxism: Your Life Depends On It!

Argument, Britain, Communism, Conservatism, Ilana Mercer, Logic, Political Economy, Race, Racism

“For the purpose of making your way adaptively and smartly in a society that is systemically anti-white, you need to understand what distinguishes Critical Race Theory from Marxism and quit the socialism/Marxism theoretical escapism, for once and for all.”

“Get this into your head: For conflict in society, Marxism fingers social class; critical race theory saddles whites. You, if you are white…”

MORE on this distinction in my latest YouTube: “Distinguish Critical Race Theory From Marxism: Your Life Depends On It!”

David Vance and I tease out this aspect some more in our weekly, Wednesday chat. Whatever we think of it—and I follow the Austrian School of economics—Marxism in the origin is serious political economy; an intellectual treatise with gravitas. CRT is a priori gibberish. Scrap that: Befitting the boors who originated critical race anti-whitism—the theory is based on reasoning backwards—if B then A—if white then … complete the sentence with all manner of evil that comes to mind.

We also discuss uniparty politics, the futility of it, and the war on MAGA folks, all 74 million of us.

UPDATED (6/4/021):

Lynette Ackermann: “Ilana, Have you any suggestions for a new paradigm for the 21st century?”

Reply: “What I am strongly suggesting in these commentaries is… keep it real. When it comes to anti-whiteness, a very serious, grave reality, you need a strategy, not a paradigm.”

NEW ON YouTube: WHITEOUT FOR WHITES! The BLM Monomania With David Vance

NEW ON YOUTUBE: WHITEOUT FOR WHITES: The BLM Monomania.

Weekly with David Vance: A wide-ranging discussion on the cancelling of whites and the substitution of bogus socialism arguments for anti-whiteness.

For example, Nigel Farage, a very clever Briton, popped in on Laura  Ingraham, the other evening. There, on “The Ingraham Angle,” he committed a non sequitur all in the service of not mentioning “anti-whiteness.”

You might say, Mr. Farage twisted like a Cirque du Soleil contortionist to ignore anti-whiteness.
