This is the 2nd in the YouTube version of my series deconstructing the political construct that is “racism.”

In it, I ask and answer the question, “Was the cop’s knee on George Floyd’s neck ‘racism’? ”

READ the column.

UPDATED: NEW COLUMN: Wake-Up. Systemic Anti-Whiteness Is Deadly. Witness South Africa

Argument, Capitalism, Communism, Race, Racism, Republicans, South-Africa, The West

A NEW COLUMN IS AT THE COURAGEOUS TOWNHALL.COM:

Wake-Up. Systemic Anti-Whiteness Is Deadly. Witness South Africa.”

The column is made all the more urgent given the race riots stateside, ongoing with impunity, and those in Senekal, South Africa, over the lynching of farmer Brendan Horner, one among many thousands.

Excerpt:

How is it possible to debate Critical Race Theory yet fail to mention its salient characteristic—that it is exclusively and ethnocidally anti-white?

One Federalist piece, “Critical Race Theory Is A Classic Communist Divide-And-Conquer Tactic,” brings it back to communism. Quite how this adds up is unclear, but the author decries a way of thinking that exploits the amorphous “tragedy of racial divisions in America.” In essence, some bad people with a communistic manual and mindset aren’t interested in healing us.

Really? Did communism, an equal-opportunity oppressor, revolve around the exclusive blackening of whites?

Western democracies are third way political and economic systems. They are already heavily socialized. Once Western societies go from third way to third world, debate over communism will cease, for communism will have arrived.

In other words, dissecting and decrying Communism is an ideological luxury, the province of relatively wealthy, stable, developed democracies.

America is indeed racially divided. Blacks, for the most, hate whites for a variety of unjust reasons, not least the incessant, institutionalized, propagandizing by other progressive whites. Deal with this truth! Communism is but an intellectual crutch.

By deferring to communism and ducking anti-white animus, the ever-quaking commentariat cloaks itself in the raiment of respectable argument.

Then there is that Uriah Heep like obsequiousness. Going by the aforementioned Federalist writer, Beltway conservatives refuse to even take credit for the “oppressive” culture for which Europeans are being berated. Ludicrously, they universalize the creed, the Protestant Ethic.

Recall the “Smithsonian display on whiteness” that condemned as “white” all elements of a civilized society, including politeness, hard work, self-reliance, logic, planning, delayed gratification, and family cohesion?

“None of those are ‘white’ values,” says the author cited , as she criticizes Critical Race Theory for framing them as white.

Imagine being so apologetic as to wash your hands of a really cool thing you invented, evolved or were born into: Western civilization.

Almost all these values are most pronounced in the European culture. One might even pin them down to Western Europe, because the sanctity of a man’s word, the handshake, culminating in the legally binding contract—these are some of the cultural and religious values that allowed capitalism to take off particularly well in the Anglosphere. Arguably, these are not part of the East European ethos.

Podcaster Dave Rubin also won’t say “anti-white.” Critical Race Theory is … wait for it, “racist.” Racist? Is Critical Race Theory anti-black, anti-Hispanic, anti-Asian, anti-Amerindian?

Even City Journal writer Christopher Rufo, a formidable warrior against institutionalized Critical Race Theory, still can’t bring himself to say it. …

UPDATE: Killer lines from the American Renaissance version of the column:

Not finished article, but I most like this poignant line:

By deferring to communism and identity politics, and ducking anti-white animus, the ever-quaking conservatives cloak themselves in the raiment of respectable argument.—ilana

On the Unz Review, where the article is unabridged, animalogic drills down well on the communism-Critical Race Theory comparison:

Good article Ilana. Linking critical race theory (CRT) to communism is not based on facts (communism is totally based on materialist philosophy, not the anti-empiricist, anti-science, & a priori nonsense of CRT). Nor is it useful: it clouds the CRT issue & sends it off down a cul-de-sac.
Its also vital to not deflect from the fundamental truth that CRT is in its essence anti-white racism

EPIC Andrew Breitbart: “FUCK YOU. WAR.”

With Andrew Breitbart it was biblical.

Indeed, the only response to those who accuse me of racism because I don’t think like they do or do as they do is:

“FUCK YOU. WAR.”

God bless Andrew Breitbart. May he continue to rage, rage from the grave.

Conservatives Refuse To Call Out Critical Race Theory As Exclusively ‘Anti-White’

America, Communism, Conservatism, Multiculturalism, Race, Racism, The West

“CRT is an exclusively anti-White set of abstract, ethnocidal ideas, convicting an entire racial group for metaphysical crimes.”–ILANA MERCER, “Critical Racist Theory Robs And Rapes Reality.”

How is it possible to discuss Critical Race Theory and fail to mention its salient characteristic—that it is exclusively anti-white, ethnocidal agitprop?

Easily, if one is a Beltway conservative. They complain a lot about Critical Race Theory, and construct elaborate theories around its crass edifice, yet seem constitutionally or congenitally incapable of calling it what it is: exclusively anti-white.

All conservatives can muster, seemingly, is to accuse Critical Race Theory peddlers of preventing multicultural America from having that big group hug we all crave and know we are capable of.

For example, this Federalist piece, “Critical Race Theory Is A Classic Communist Divide-And-Conquer Tactic,” hides behind the term “identity politics,” and decries a way of thinking that exploits the amorphous “tragedy of racial divisions in America.”  Some bad people with a communist mindset and a manual aren’t interested in healing. Boohoo.

Really? I didn’t know that Communism revolved around the exclusive subjugation of whites?

If reality means anything, this is bizarre and wrong. America is racially divided. Blacks, for the most, hate whites for a variety of unjust reasons (not least the incessant propagandizing by other progressive whites). They want to hurt them and make them pay. For what? For everything; for whatever is wrong with their lives. Deal with that truth. Communism is but an intellectual crutch.

Deferring to communism allows the ever-quaking conservatives to hide behind respectable argument.

As to that Uriah Heep like obsequiousness: Going by this Federalist writer, conservatives refuse to even take credit for the culture for which Europeans are being berated. So they universalize the creed (the Protestant Ethic).

Recall the “‘Smithsonian display on “whiteness’ that condemned all elements of civil society, including politeness, hard work, self-reliance, logic, planning, and family cohesion”? “None of those are ‘white’ values, but critical race theory frames them just so,” assures the aforementioned author.

Rubbish! These values are most pronounced in the European culture. One might even call them Western European by nature, because the sanctity of the handshake, the word-of-mouth promise, the contract—the things that made capitalism take so well in the Anglo-American world: These are not really part of the East European ethos.

Imagine being so servile and apologetic that you wash your hands of a really cool thing you invented.

Hybrid conservative Dave Rubin also won’t say it. Critical Race Theory is … wait for it, “racist.” We’ll leave it at that, shall we, Rubin seems to be saying. Racist? Is it anti black, Hispanic, Asian? Naturally not.

Even Christopher F. Rufo, formidable warrior against institutionalized Critical race Theory, still can’t bring himself to SAY IT.

By Rufo’s definition, CRT is “a radical ideology that advocates the overthrow of capitalism, meritocracy, and equal protection under the law.” Maybe. But those lowly goals are secondary to singling out whites for a unique form of subjugation and intimidation.

 

 

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