For the longest time, the American People—an inchoate concept, really—have endured great wrongs. Examples of these wrongs are en masse immigration, open-borders, dispossessing multilateral trade deals, and now vaccine mandates.
Ubiquitous black-on-white crime inflicted by a coddled criminal class, native born and imported energetically, is high on the list of state and corporate crimes against the citizenry.
Whether he postures on TV or on the Hill—the arguments advanced by the typical Republican frontman against these defining depredations are, however, empty.
It has been my ongoing goal in this space to alert the voter to this void. The “objections” put forth by Republicans in defense of their constituency are all theater, farce, to be precise.
These empty arguments are mirrored, for example, in my exposing, in February of 2019, the fact that, “Every time a manifestly racist, anti-white event goes down, which is frequently, conservative media and politicians call it ‘identity politics.’ ‘The left is playing identity politics,’ they intone. “They are dividing us.” “Whatever is convulsing the country,” I explained, “it’s not identity politics, but purely anti-white politics.
So, identify the bogus argument—and you will have exposed the frauds who want you to send them to live off the fleshpots in Rome-on-the-Potomac. (It has been pointed out to me correctly that “the comparison to Rome [is unfair]. [A]fter all, Rome built two great civilizations and is a site of enormous cultural significance.”)
Although not exclusive to him, my example today comes from Fox News’s Jesse Watters. When speaking loudly OVER his guest, Jesse Watters made the usual Republican straw argument against black crime. You hear it from Hannity and the rest all the time:
Democrats “only care when a white person takes a black life. If a black person takes a black life, they don’t even care at all.”
Seldom mentioned in Republican argumentation is the REAL HATE CRIME IN THE ROOM: black-on-white crime which is invariably not reported, or if reported masked as something other than what it really is, which is systemic, white hot hatred of whites.
Republicans can’t protect besieged whites and are forever searching their pea brains for ways to show off their Abe Lincoln pedigree.
Having originated the popular meme “Democrats are the real racists” back in 2014, I’ll argue that the line, “Democrats don’t care that blacks are killing blacks,” is a species of the “Democrats are the real racists” fatuity.
In this way, by showing how black-focused and caring they are—Republicans hang on to respectability and on to the good graces of Democrats by the hairs of their chiny chin-chin. The empty ‘arguments’ of Republican frontmen are a way to stay in the political game.
UPDATED (11/10/021): The latest in this genre comes courtesy of Johnny-Come-Lately conservative J. D. Vance, who had shunned Trump, but found religion on the president’s populism, when it became politically expedient:
“I don’t care if we are talking about a little black girl in 1965, or a little white girl in 2021, telling a little girl that she is evil because of her skin color, is disgusting and vile.”
These words were spoken at a conference of self-anointed leaders of national conservatism.
See, but this is not 1965. And the victims of white-hot hatred are white, not black. To Republicans, it is impossible to mention white suffering without dragging in the “black experience.”
This is a vintage Republican habit: Using weasel words to sound fair and impartial.
