“Republicans find it impossible to mention white suffering without dragging in the ‘black experience.'”—ilana
For the longest time, the American People—an inchoate, or formless concept, really—have endured great wrongs. Examples of these wrongs are en masse legal and illegal immigration, open-borders, the kind of multilateral trade deals that immiserate and impoverish, and now, vaccine mandates: take the hemlock or lose your job.
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 front man against these defining depredations are, however, empty.
It is essential 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 a February 2019 column, the fact that, “Every time a manifestly racist, anti-white event goes down, which is frequently, conservative media and politicians can be relied on to call it ‘identity politics.’ ‘The left is playing identity politics,’ they intone. “They are dividing us,” they lament.
However, “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. (Actually, it has been pointed out perspicaciously to me by Tom Piatak that “the comparison to Rome [is unfair].” And that [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.”
Likewise, it can be said that Republican don’t much care when a black person takes a white life.
Seldom mentioned in Republican argumentation is the REAL HATE CRIME IN THE ROOM: black-on-white crime which is invariably not reported, underreported, or if reported, masked as something other than what it really is, which is systemic, white hot hatred of whites.
Republicans can’t protect or stick up for 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 chinny chin-chins. The empty ‘arguments’ of Republican frontmen are a way to stay in the political game.
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 Vance spoke at a conference of self-anointed leaders of national conservatism, many of whom discovered national conservatism belatedly and opportunistically.
And my objection to what Vance said is, you ask? It is very plainly this: It is not 1965. And the victims of white-hot hatred are white, not black.
For Republicans, however, it is impossible to mention white suffering without dragging in the “black experience.”
This is a vintage Republican habit: Using weasel words to preen politically and sound fair and impartial.
UPDATE I (11/15/021): There’s my point again: White child Kyle Rittenhouse doesn’t cut it as a cause absent the moral padding of the “black experience”:
Republican Dana Loesch thus proves incapable of defending white Kyle on FoxNews, without inserting mention of the “black businesses” that were being burned in Kenosha in BLM riots on that day. The substance of Ms. Loesch’s tweet is what she echoed on Fox News to Jesse Watters, 11/15/021:
Justice for the black business owners whose businesses were burned to the ground by people like white convicted pedophile and racist Joesph Rosenbaum screaming slurs on camera or white domestic abuser Anthony Huber, or white Antifa member Grosskruetz brandishing a handgun?
UPDATE II (11/16/021): Where are Republican politicians for Kyle Rittenhouse? Democrats speak up all the time for the armed militia of the Democratic Party, BLM. Why are yellow-bellied Republicans silent about a folk hero?
And what are Republicans doing about surveillance of parents by Merrick Garland? Fox News’ Jesse Watters asked Senator Josh Hawley. “We’ll question Merrick Garland,” Hawley answers. Stop him, don’t question him. There must be ways to stop an officer of the law from laying the legal infrastructure down (creation of “threat tags”) in order to commit constitutional infractions against citizens, using their taxpayer dollars. Ya think?
BREAKING: House Republicans have obtained whistleblower documents showing that the FBI is using its counterterrorism division to investigate and add "threat tags" to parents—contradicting Attorney General Garland's sworn testimony.
