I’m in a blunt mood, so bear with me.
After Charlottesville, I was “this” close to shutting down this blog. I wanted to close it and pretty much never discuss politics again and focus on other personal endeavors. It’s not because of all the de-platforming that occurred. There’s a myriad of reasons why that I don’t really care to get into here, other than to say there are much more fulfilling things in life than talking about politics.
But something keeps me from doing that. Something keeps this blog up for you to read.
One of them is the fact that I can’t keep my mouth shut, so to speak. I can’t remain silent.
A recent newsletter from Tom Woods demonstrates why:
A professor wrote an article explaining how the destruction of social and cultural values we commonly associate with the 1950s has been devastating to many American families.
This professor is now being accused of promoting white nationalism or white supremacy.
The accusation may shock a “normie” and inspire outrage. But if it amazes you, then you’ve been living under a rock for the last 10 years, or you’re pretending things aren’t the way they are.
The agenda of the Left is to destroy everything that made the West great.
It doesn’t matter. They want it eradicated. That includes the nuclear family.
I could never do this subject justice here, but the simple fact is that for all their talk of combating hate, if there is any emotion one would use to describe the feelings of the Left toward the 1950s, it would be pure, unbridled, uncontainable hate.
I’m talking about the kind of the hate that no communist ever felt toward capitalism, the kind of hate that Satan feels for God.
Normies pretend or pay lip service to the pretense that despite their conduct, the Left is truly about fighting racism and white supremacy, even when they know it’s all bullshit.
Everyone knows this. We all know it’s total, complete, undiluted bullshit. It’s no different than when they accuse someone of being a Nazi, when they’re really declaring them an outlaw whose rights have been stripped away.
We know that when they talk about white supremacy they’re talking about dismantling all cultural and social norms that give rise to low-crime, high-education, high-trust, birth-within-marriage, nuclear family-style communities. The kind of communities where you know your next door neighbor and you don’t have to double check the locks on your house when you go to the grocery store. The kind of community where you can drop your kids off at school and know they’ll be taught the same values by people who believe the same stuff as you, instead of learning later that day your little daughter was taught by a tyranny how to put condoms on wooden knobs. The kind of community where your daughter gets married after a brief dating stint to a respectable young man able to provide, instead of becoming the baby momma to the bastard children of a handful of cads and living off feral gummit gibsmedat.
It explains how the Left responded to this professor’s article, as Woods describes it here:
A petition in response to her column condemned her for “extolling the virtues of white cultural practices of the ’50s that, if understood within their sociocultural context, stem from the very same malignant logic of hetero-patriarchal, class-based, white supremacy that plagues our country today. These cultural values and logics are steeped in anti-blackness and white hetero-patriarchal respectability…” (and it continues like that, but you’ve had enough).
Normies had better get it into their thick skulls that the Left hates everything they claim to cherish and hold dear, and they attack it under the guise of fighting “racism” and “white supremacy.” For the love of God, stop acting like they’re well-intended or even remotely within range of a legitimate target when they say that.
Don’t think for one second that it’s about the KKK, Neo-Nazis, or even the Alt. Right. Those are soft targets that condition people for what’s up next.
Don’t pretend to be confused when having parents still married after 20 years of marriage is called “white supremacy,” and you’re told to check your white privilege because they didn’t divorce when you were three or actually tied the knot before you popped out.
Don’t be confused when black men who wait until marriage to have kids are accused of perpetuating “white supremacy.”
Don’t be confused when criticizing promiscuity is called “racism,” even when you’re calling out a white girl’s slutty behavior.
Don’t be confused when anything from the 1950s, no matter how innocuous or innocent, is deemed “racist” and promoting “white nationalism.”
Don’t be surprised when watching “A White Christmas” will one day be deemed “Neo-Nazism.”
I predict that within five years, traditional Christmas songs will be all but verboten for “perpetuating white patriarchy.”
Anything you associate with normalcy is considered white supremacy. Accept it. Deal with it. Embrace it.
Just don’t pretend it’s anything other than that.
Now you know why I keep this blog up.
Where’s the Tylenol?
