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

“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.”

Twisting Like Cirque du Soleil Contortionists To Ignore Anti-Whiteness

Nigel Farage, a very clever Briton (see “BREXIT: It Takes Brains To Understand Liberty“), 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.”

Conservatives will twist like Cirque du Soleil contortionists, to avoid dubbing as anti-white the Black Lives Matter dangerous monomania.

The non sequitur logical error is when a conclusion doesn’t follow from a premise.

Here is Farage’s non sequitur:

“Socialism is dead in England,” he concluded. That conclusion was meant to follow from his premise. His premise was that the British were fed up with the Black Lives Matter agitprop and other antics.

But from the fact that Britons are fed-up with BLM—it doesn’t follow that socialism is dead in Britain.

This is because socialism is not central in the BLM list of coups; socialism is BLM’s secondary program. It doesn’t feature compared to the central aim of terrorizing whites. BLM is working predominantly to marginalize and cancel whites.

UPDATE III (5/11): NEW COLUMN: Earth To Conservatives: The Problem Is ‘Systemic Anti-Whiteness,’ Not Marxism, Not ID Politics

Argument, Communism, Conservatism, Critical Race Theory, Logic, Political Correctness, Race, Racism, Reason, Republicans, South-Africa

NEW COLUMN is, “Earth To Conservatives: The Problem Is ‘Systemic Anti-Whiteness,’ Not Marxism, Not ID Politics.” It’s currently on The Unz Review, WND.COM, CNSNews,
and American Greatness.

An excerpt:

Institutionalized, systemic anti-whiteness, yoked to white hot, hatred of whites: That is the creed that is fast becoming entrenched across state and civil society in the U.S.

Chiseled down, these are also the building blocks of Critical Race Theory, a specious, subintelligent concoction, originated by subpar intellectuals.

The Critical Race project now pervades private and political life.

A further twist of the screw (or the shrew) was delivered recently by Vice President Kamala Harris, who insists on yammering about white America’s historic racism.

In practice, whites are being singled out for a punishing, institutionalized program of reeducation, subjugation and continued intimidation.

Dangerous in isolation, the entrenchment of anti-white animus is indisputable. It is made worse in combination with the conservative cognoscenti’s inability to come out with it. Too many conservatives euphemize our anti-white culture.

In particular, they will typically deflect from any anti-white outrage du jour by dubbing it identity politics: “Boohoo. Democrats are dividing us via identity politics.” This is an obfuscation.

Here’s why: Blacks are not being pitted against Hispanics. Hispanics are not being sicced on Asians, and Ameri-Indians aren’t being urged to attack the groups just mentioned. Rather, they’re all piling on honky. Hence, anti-white politics or animus. The multicultural multitudes are gunning for whites and their putative privilege.

The tarring of whites is now close to becoming a curricular requirement in education (primary, secondary, tertiary), and from entertainment to technology, anti-white racial “redress” is the all-important object of industry.

When they are not lamenting Democrat-driven, divisive “identity politics”; conservatives will wax to you about Marxism and communism. The anti-white theoretical kudzu enervating every aspect of life is, apparently, just a manifestation of the radical Left’s Marxism. Or, so you are told. This further downplays the anti-white project of the purveyors of Critical Race policy prescriptions.

Put it this way: If your first response to “Kill the Farmer, Kill the Boer,” chanted by South Africa’s murderous Julius Malema, is, “Marxism, identity politics”—you are going to come short in the survival department. …

Dear Comrades & Friends,

[HERE] is the LINK to [the courageous] CNSNews for an exceptional linguistically accurate yet frightening article by Misses Ilana Mercer. This intelligent courageous lady, who originally came from South Africa, goes straight to the jugular vein for the truth of the matter: she clearly states that pigmentation, skin colour does matter, because it is about hating, murdering and reducing Whites and their European culture and traditions to nothing but a zero factor in the history of mankind. Also, inherently her criticism of the wrong terminology used by The Right reveals nothing but deliberate ignorance, by this I mean they suffer from the psychological disorder known as Confabulation, pseudo-intellectualism and, I will say, cowardice on the part of its doyens, … Those who say skin colour or race does not enter the equation should not avoid the internal LINK in Misses Mercer’s article “Kill The Farmer, Kill The Boer” by Mister Loyiso Sidimba.
God Bless You All & The Brave Ilana, Eric

NEW COLUMN: Resist the Left’s Conflation of ‘Racism’ With the Law, for Chauvin and Beyond

NEW ON CNSNews.com: “Resist the Left’s Conflation of ‘Racism’ With the Law, for Chauvin and Beyond.”

An excerpt: https://tinyurl.com/3j6sdu5z

Racism consists of a mindset or a worldview that boils down to impolite and impolitic thoughts and words written, spoken, preached, or tweeted.

If that’s all racism is, you ask, then what was the knee on George Floyd’s neck? Was that not racism?

No, it was not.

Judging from the known facts, the knee on Mr. Floyd’s neck was a knee on a man’s neck. That’s all that can be inferred from the chilling video recording in which Floyd expired slowly as he pleaded for air.

Floyd begged to breathe. But the knee on his neck—“subdual restraint and neck compression,” in medical terms—was sustained for fully eight minutes and 46 seconds, causing “cardiopulmonary arrest.”

There are laws against what transpired between former Officer Derek Chauvin and Mr. Floyd.

And the law’s ambit is not to decide whether the offending officer is a correct-thinking individual, but whether Mr. Chauvin had committed a crime.

About Officer Chauvin’s mindset, the most the law is supposed to divine is mens rea—criminal intention: Was the officer whose knee pressed on Floyd’s neck acting with a guilty mind or not?

For fact-finding is the essence of the law. The law is not an abstract ideal of imagined social justice, that exists to salve sensitive souls.

If “racism” looks like a felony crime, then it ought to be prosecuted as nothing but a crime and debated as such. In the case of Mr. Chauvin, a mindset of depraved indifference seems to jibe with the video.

This is not to refute the reality of racially motivated crimes. These most certainly occur. It is only to refute the legal and ethical validity of a racist mindset in the prosecution of a crime.

Surely, a life taken because of racial or antisemitic animus is not worth more than life lost to spousal battery or to a home invasion.

The law, then, must mete justice, in accordance with the rules of evidence, proportionality and due process. Other than intent, references to the attendant thoughts that accompanied the commission of a crime should be irrelevant—be they racist, sexist, ageist or anti-Semitic.

Ultimately, those thoughts are known only to the perp….
