‘White Supremacy’ Jiu-Jitsu

Posted on | June 29, 2021 | Comments Off on ‘White Supremacy’ Jiu-Jitsu

If you read my post about Officer Curtis Brown, you’ll see I’ve updated to include my reply to someone who accused me of being — of all things! — a “self-hating white.” Readers familiar with my reputation as a dangerous neo-Confederate extremist will perhaps laugh at this, but you see how the absurd accusation offers an opportunity to clarify some important issues.

What do liberals mean when they accuse their opponents of “white supremacy”? If it’s not merely a political smear, then surely this accusation must have some actual meaning. What it is, really, is an insulting accusation of ignorance. The liberal considers himself to be inherently superior to others, and thus endowed with greater knowledge and moral virtue about everything, including race relations. The fact that you disagree with the liberal is, to him, proof of your inferiority.

The subject of your disagreement is irrelevant, and it doesn’t matter why you’re disagreeing with the liberal, or what facts or logic you might be able to muster in defense of your position. what you have done, by your disagreement, is to deny the liberal’s superiority. His entire identity — his sense of his own worthiness — is invested in the belief that his political opinion proves him to be a better person than you.

Liberal superiority is tautological in this way, a circular argument in which the conclusion is a restatement of the first premise.

The best single-volume analysis of the psychology of liberalism is Thomas Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy. Once you have read that book, you understand that liberalism is not a coherent political philosophy, but merely an attitude, a pharisaical sense of self-righteousness. This is the reason why liberals are always engaged in hypocrisy, judging by double standards, and contradicting the logic of their own arguments. For example, we are expected to believe that liberalism is all about lifting up the downtrodden masses in the name of Equality (with a capital “E,” signifying its pseudo-religious status among liberals). Yet when you examine the lives of eminent liberals, and look at who it is that actually supports liberalism, their alleged egalitarianism is exposed as a fraud. The reason billionaires like Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg are not pouring money into the coffers of liberal organizations is not because of some humanitarian philanthropic impulse, but because liberalism benefits the rich, who can afford to avoid the negative consequences of the policies they support. Whatever havoc liberals policies may inflict on the working class, Zuckerberg isn’t going to lose his yachts or his mansions as a consequence. At the end of the day, no matter what, he’ll still be a billionaire and, even if America becomes a desolate dystopian wasteland of neo-feudal warlords fighting an endless tribal conflict over the ruins and scaps, Zuckerberg can just hop in his jet and move to Dubai or Seoul, or whatever outpost of civilization still remains on the planet.

Liberalism is an expression of elite decadence, an ersatz political substitute for moral virtue. Think of Harvey Weinstein, who was once one of the most powerful men in Hollywood (and a big donor to Democrats) before he was finally exposed as a disgusting sexual pervert.

Or what about Hunter Biden? A lazy, spoiled brat, addicted to drugs and sexual degeneracy, spawning bastard children with strippers — yeah, but he’s a liberal, which proves that he’s better than you.

And this presumption of their own superiority is what liberals are exhibiting when they point the finger and scream: “RAAAAACIST!”

Who are they, to judge others in such matters? Where is the evidence of their moral authority to act as arbiters of public virtue?

Joe Biden’s son wouldn’t even admit he’d impregnated a stripper until she got a court to order a DNA test proving his paternity, so please spare me your moralistic lectures, you godless liberal hypocrites.

As to the accusation of “white supremacy,” however, I understand this to be intended as an insult, implying that the person accused is an ignorant adherent of some disproven and obsolete theory. Others may defend themselves against such accusations however they wish, but I merely ask my accusers to offer evidence that I endorse any such theory.

What I do not deny — indeed, it is the summation of my political creed — is the belief that liberals are always wrong about everything.

Liberals are wrong about race in the same way that liberals are wrong about economics, foreign policy, education, you name it. Whatever specific policy liberals may advance on race, as on any other issue, I will oppose with every fiber of my being. They’ve been wrong about everything, forever, and I don’t expect them to be right in the future.

Joe Biden’s entire career is a testimony to the absolute bankruptcy of liberalism. When it behooved his own political interests, Biden opposed school busing and advocated mandatory sentences for drug offenders. But once these positions became a political liability, he abandoned them and adopted new positions almost diametrically opposed to what he had formerly avowed. Yet at all times, Biden was a liberal — including when, as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he presided over the disastrous carnival of the Clarence Thomas confirmation history that the nominee rightly called a “high-tech lynching.” Despite Biden’s awful record, liberals now insist that anyone who voted against Biden for president is a “white supremacist” and perhaps even a terrorist threat!

Well, slap the cuffs on me and throw me in prison, I guess, but I damned sure ain’t about to start apologizing to such despicable trash.
