Neocons Are Upset With Me 3

This is an important piece by Paul Gottfried which points out that the fragmentation that is growing the United States is not primarily about race, something that both leftists and white nationalists are constantly missing. Every bit of evidence shows that the political and class divides are wider than the racial divides. The Red/Blue war is primarily, though not exclusively, an “intra-white” war, at least in terms of the leadership of both sides. While a “majority of minorities” tend to side with the Blue Team, and growing “minority of minorities” is siding with the Red Team. What Dr. Gottfried describes in the following paragraph is what the future of the Left/Right divide will look like, albeit in an even more radicalized form.

The most lunatic Cultural Marxists I’ve encountered are Aryan-looking Germans and Swedes, who right now are running their countries, into the ground. I haven’t noticed any black people in Europe pushing radical lifestyle agendas or demanding that Europeans open their borders to more Muslim migrants. For the last thirty years I have been battling PC fanatics, including the ones in conservatism, inc.; and these zealots have been predominantly white. Although I wouldn’t deny that the PC Left has tried to “empower” minorities for revolutionary or political transformational uses, the roles played by these minorities have been secondary. The major war for civilization has gone on among whites.

I am, moreover, delighted that some black commentators are willing to attack black race hustlers with the appropriate contempt. It was black conservative Larry Elders who had the spunk to say what I couldn’t imagine Stephen Hayes, Bret Baier, or Bernie Goldberg ever allowing himself to utter. Elders called Al Sharpton a bigoted thug who managed to start a race war in Brooklyn before becoming Obama’s gray eminence. And he described the raving California Congresswoman Maxine Waters as a “delusional poverty pimp.” Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County was also one of the first interviewees whom I heard on TV openly condemning both sides for the Charlottesville riot. In the war for civilization at least a minority of blacks has been vocally and persistently on the conservative side. Am I supposed to reject such warriors in favor of white leftists who happen to have the approved skin color? I shall happily make common cause with decent people of all races to battle the Cultural Marxist totalitarians, who are taking power in just about every so-called liberal democracy.

We Seek the Truth

A Polish friend, who reads this website regularly, sent me recently this characterization of my personality and worldview:

“He’s a sniffy traditionalist, a self-described ‘Robert Taft Republican,’ with a classical liberal bent, and a Nietzschean American nationalist who goes out of his way to exaggerate his European affect. He opposes both the Civil Rights Act and white nationalism. He’s a bone-deep elitist and the oracle of what’s billed as a populist revolt.”

Although the person who wrote this for the (Jewish) Tablet was certainly not intending to compliment me, I fully recognize myself in his words.

    I’d argue that’s untrue. Tactics are not obviated by strategy. That the political elite have long mobilized on race for their own ulterior motives is undeniable, but for those outside the optimates caste there is a world of undeniably racial consequences for those schemes.

    “The Red/Blue war is primarily, though not exclusively, an “intra-white” war, at least in terms of the leadership of both sides. While a “majority of minorities” tend to side with the Blue Team, and growing “minority of minorities” is siding with the Red Team.”

    Trump having won some 10% of various minority groups does not indicate a trend. It’s within the 3% margin of error attained by his Republican predecessors. One would have to be exceedingly optimistic to presume that minority voters would abandon the team that is, in no uncertain terms, offering them an overwhelming social status advantage (to say nothing of the quotas, affirmative admissions, etc).

    “I haven’t noticed any black people in Europe pushing radical lifestyle agendas or demanding that Europeans open their borders to more Muslim migrants.”

    I might suggest another look around. It’s commonplace for Africans and Arabs to agitate for more immigration and preferential treatment in Europe. Of course, the crazy aryans you mentioned turn those requests into actions, but it’s misleading to suggest the Africans of Europe are not ethnically self-interested.

    “The major war for civilization has gone on among whites.”

    I don’t want to name my own people, but I will if you make me. There is substantially more to the story than white intra-racial conflict.

    “I shall happily make common cause with decent people of all races to battle the Cultural Marxist totalitarians, who are taking power in just about every so-called liberal democracy.”

    As do I; however, it should go without saying that individualism erodes with each passing moment the elite continue to play their class cum racial conflict game. Statistical reality being what it is, whites cannot operate on the assumption that minorities will come to their rescue in the political arena. They will very likely have to defend themselves and at a point where they are not safe to judge individuals by the content of their character.

    Some, perhaps many, whites will perish rather than become sufficiently tribal to survive that epoch. I hope for their sake, and my own people’s sake, that most of them do.

    • I wish people would just mind their own business and gear up with guns and get jobs to occupy their time, politics and herd stuff is so 2 million BC.

  2. Paul Gottfried is one of the most interesting people one can possibly read or talk with. His combination of plain language, familiar style and mildly pretentious but genuine erudition are remarkable. He is 2017s Randolph of Roanoke, and funnier, though slightly less comical than the original.
