NEW COLUMN IS “On The Backs Of Poor Whites? How J.D.-Vance Elites Become Elites“. It’s currently on WND.COM and The Unz Review.

An excerpt:

The country is fast descending into a Dantean hell.

The Circles of Hell into which we’ve been signed, sealed and delivered are mass migration, diversity, multiculturalism, and zealous, institutionalized anti-whiteness, with its attendant de-civilization and inversion of long-held societal morals and mores.

The guiding ghost of Virgil is nowhere to be found. To ostensibly shepherd us out of hell, however, assorted serpents have slithered forth.

Beware! All the more so when they speak to you from bastions of the establishment—Newsweek is one—as J. D. Vance does in, “True ‘Compassion’ Requires Secure Borders and Stopping Illegal Immigration.

His is the typically conciliatory, “conservative” argument we’ve come to expect from the gilded elite, regarding America’s promiscuous immigration policy, under Republicans and Democrats alike.

Vance is the best-selling author of Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis, which is a culturally compliant—namely unflattering—account of poor, white America.

Provided your thesis allows for a cozy convergence over agreeable storylines—you are well-positioned to peddle a national bestseller to the approving the left, libertarian, neoconservative and pseudo-conservative smart-set.

Yes, Vance is a sellout. Not that they were asked for their take, but the archetypal folks depicted in Hillbilly Elegy contend, justifiably, that “Vance [is] not an authentic hillbilly or an example of the working class.”

Cassie Chambers Armstrong’s Aunt Ruth, for example.

Aunt Ruth didn’t think much of Vance’s endeavor. Her niece is an Appalachian and author of a redeeming tale, Hill Women: Finding Family and a Way Forward in the Appalachian Mountains.

Hillbilly Elegy’s portrayal of Appalachia,” explains Chambers, “is designed to elevate Vance above the community from which he came … it seeks to tell his story in a way that aligns with a simplistic rags-to-riches narrative. Think critically about how that narrative influences the way we are taught to think about poverty, progress, and identity.”

Chambers is perceptively correct. It’s cringe worthy—Uriah Heep slimy—but Vance all but advertises that the Indian-American Brahmin he wed has helped “rid him of his hillbilly ways.” To that end, he tells of a mild exchange with his wife: “Don’t make excuses for weakness. I didn’t get here by making excuses for failure,” he “hollers” at her.

These unremarkable, muted words Vance had with wife Usha Chilukuri he frames, self-servingly, as “the baggage of his tumultuous upbringing.” Wow!

Self-deprecation over nothing much at all amounts to very clever self-aggrandizement. Vance’s casuistry resembles a kind of Argument From Fake Modesty.

Indeed, in smug self-aggrandizement, Vance slimes his hillbilly relatives, even naming names. Credits and kudos go to the Chilukuris, wife Usha’s relatives, for “[teaching] him what a functional family looked like.”

From family unit to family unification policy: When discussing immigration, J. D. Vance is just as nimble …

Woke Whites Tripping Over Each Other To Be Black

IlanaMercer.com, Left-Liberalism, Multiculturalism, Propaganda, Race, Racism

Chris Cuomo (white) to Don Lemon (sepia-tinted): “I’m black on the inside“.

Woke Whites are tripping over themselves to be black. It’s called systemic racism: systemic anti-White racism.

Were not people like Rachel Dolezal driven to blackface by systemic anti-White racism? Indeed  they were.

America is not racist. In America, black is beautiful. To be black is to be more righteous, nobler; carry the heaviest historic baggage—heavier than the Holocaust and the Trail of Tears—and be encouraged to perpetually and publicly pick at those imagined, oozing injuries.

**************

Many have assimilated the erroneous thinking about the “racism” construct.

I have written about 4 essays to refute the fallacies.

Political racism is, however, properly deconstructed in these columns:

‘Systemic Racism’ Or Systemic Rubbish?
Was The Cop’s Knee On George Floyd’s Neck ‘Racism’? No!
Ethnocidal ‘Critical Race Theory’ Is Upon Us Like White On Rice
Critical Racist Theory Robs And Rapes Reality

If the reading is hard, I’ve made a series of YouTube videos, which track closely with the essays:

UPDATE II (4/9): Whites: Stop Weeping And ‘Weatherize’ Your Kids

Americans aren’t understanding on a visceral level the extent of the envy behind anti-White animus.

It’s the ethnocidal jealousy described in my book, “Into The Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America From Post-Apartheid South Africa.” It made the ugly Hutus take machetes to the beautiful Tutsis, killing a million. It’s what drives so much black-on-white violent crime.

This kind of jealousy makes uglies gouge blue eyes out. Literally.

Whites: Stop weeping and weatherize your kids, in other words, make warriors out of them.

See: “How To Think And Act Like A Ruthless Warrior By Jack Kerwick.”

AND:

Why Hatred Of Whites Is Here To Stay”

UPDATE (2/24): The “Why Do They Come Here, Then” Argument.

Another evasive tack taken, I believe, even by Tucker Carlson, @DrC88118048 No contradictions here. The only contradiction lies in the dumb West’s response of letting ’em in: Third World likes your stuff–likes the countries you create–just doesn’t like you creative types very much: Envy!

UPDATE II (4/9): The same applies to politicians. Grow a backbone.

Don’t apologize, Ron Johnson. Don’t bow to the racialist hostage takers. Stand tall. We were all petrified BLM and Antifa would come to out neighborhoods. Still are! The Jan 6 crowd? Harmless to you and me. Speak for us, man!

Prager University’s Propositional-Nation Creed

“Race and ethnicity have defined every nation on earth, except one: The United States of America. It is defined by values.”—PragerU

Prager U, here, articulates the propositional-nation perspective, propounded by the neoconservatives and neoliberals. It is a false creed.

So how is the US doing as a nation united by “values” upon which nobody can agree? As well as a Walmart with missiles can do. We shop and we war, with others and among ourselves.

Notice the Schadenfreude tinged with a sense of American superiority with respect to the Europeans.

To her credit, France has no institutionalized multiculturalism. Integrating individuals, not communities, is how the French have approached their émigré population. They say their republican values proscribe affirmative action. But since America’s republican values haven’t hindered racist quotas here, says our neoconservative troika, the French should get with The Program.

Oh, by the way, which “nation” has held onto its historic monuments, America or the “cheese-eating surrender monkeys”?

President Emmanuel Macron evinced the resolve the Anglo-American surrender monkeys are too feeble to feel, much less display:
Said Macron, “The [French] republic will not erase any trace, or any name, from its history … it will not take down any statue.”
Bravo, Monsieur Macron.
