Black Jeopardy and White Identity


This election cycle has been a rough one for normie-tier white pseudointellectuals. No matter how hard they try, Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, and that “liberal but not radical” friend from high school on Facebook just can’t seem to look like they have anything smart to say about what’s going on. The neoliberals have had nothing to contribute except for “Wow, just wow!” and “Come on, it’s current year!

With mere weeks before the finale, they’ve taken an impressive buzzer shot with a Saturday Night Live skit that attempts to make an intelligent and funny point about the prevailing zeitgeist. The point is that the rapidly growing White underclass increasingly shares the alienation, sense of “disempowerment,” and “suspicion of authority” which has typified America’s black underclass for generations. Their joke is that all those racist Trump voters have more in common with minorities than they realize.

Slate’s Jamelle Bouie is angry about the skit because its attempt to empathize with Trumpkins enough to make a condescending joke at their expense does empathize with them to a degree. In their attempt to find some sort of relevant humor in this election cycle, the SNL writing staff have dared to imply that the White working class have legitimate political interests.

This will not stand.

For Mr. Bouie, everything’s about race, …his own Black race, specifically. In attempting to learn about and effectively respond to Trump’s groundswell of unexpected support, the media has dared to ask whether White people might have problems, discovering (to their surprise) that there are tens of millions of White Americans for who’ve been left behind, exploited, and deprived of hope and change in a systemic, institutional, and malicious manner. Slate’s chief political correspondent can’t tolerate this line of inquiry.

For the past year, political journalists across the ideological spectrum have worked to understand Donald Trump and his voters. What drove their frustration and anger? Why did they gravitate toward Trump versus other political figures? A cottage industry sprang up around the drive to answer those questions, with stories that followed a kind of template: nuanced, empathic portraits of working-class whites living in former industrial towns and cities that have long since fallen from their former glory.

Few of these stories were bad, but most of them suffered from the same blind spot: race.

Of course they did.

In telling the story of the white workers who backed Trump, they missed the perspective of the black ones who rejected him.

We’re supposed to believe that the media hasn’t aggressively pursued Trump’s racism. As a leader of a White Nationalist political project, I can confidently assert that the media has been quite motivated to follow each potential lead on this topic. While TradWorker has been up to some very impressive stuff and we are a rapidly growing political party, we have no illusions about why we’ve received more media coverage this month than most hurricanes do. We’re receiving tons of media coverage because they’re eager to find some way to accuse Trump of being a big racist.

There’s no actual story here, of course. Trump doesn’t support what we’re doing. He’s a civic nationalist, not a White Nationalist. But, like desperate crackheads sifting through a shag carpet, they’re doing their best to find the tiniest bit of Racism & Trump to catch a buzz off of. Supposedly, it’s a big deal that we’re jazzed about Trump. It’s not a big deal when outright Communists and left wing terrorists routinely line up behind the Democratic candidate. Hell, most of the White Right fell in line behind McCain and Romney when it came down to the home stretch.

Empathy without clarity leads to a place where Trump’s material threat to nonwhites—“stop and frisk,” mass deportation, Muslim surveillance, etc.—is treated as incidental to the story of Trump and his support, when it’s the opposite.

Trump has tried (in vain) to appeal to Black voters. His platform is (with the exception of the “law and order” aspect) really good for Black Americans. The law and order thing is also good for Black families and communities, actually. But the community has decided to champion those in their community least deserving of advocacy and solidarity.

Bringing strong union jobs back to the Rust Belt and driving out the migrant slave labor underclass will help Black Americans at least as much as it will help White Americans. And I think I speak for more than just myself in the nationalist community when I say that I would rather my tax dollars go to Black Americans on welfare and public assistance than to the rapidly growing mob of tens of millions of illegals, recent immigrants, and “refugees” spilling over our borders.

Of course, Trump can’t have the Black vote because they vote tribally. Despite their finding much of the contemporary Democratic Party platform repugnant, the urban machine politicians reliably drive Blacks to the polls to vote for the candidates who are on their racial team. Jeb’s having a non-White family, Marco’s migrant heritage, and even Herman Cain’s having blackness wouldn’t persuade the Black community away from the DNC, because they put identity politics first.

Racism is a huge obstacle to a kind of class solidarity. And that, as long as real-life Dougs hold on to their identity politics, that obstacle will remain.

Jamelle has the nerve to open this essay with an accusation of “blind spots” only to exhibit his own solar eclipse of a blind spot. In his mind, only non-Whites have a right to identity politics, no matter how disempowered and marginalized White folks might be. For him, “justice” is a unilateral disarmament where Whites are not allowed to think or behave in their own tribal interests while everybody else categorically must put their tribal interests before all else.

Of course, I don’t actually believe it’s a blind spot. I believe Mr. Bouie is a genuine bigot who masks his racial bigotry in obfuscated language for his white liberal audience. He doesn’t wish for “fairness,” “justice,” or “progress.” He sees it all as zero-sum and is calling for the opposing team to lay down their weapons so he can win. Much like the host who can’t possibly stand to hear Tom Hanks’ character’s opinion on Black Lives Matter, Bouie cannot and will not tolerate a platform for White folks to express any identitarian concerns.

That’s fine. We don’t need his permission. Thanks to the Internet, we have our own platforms now. And we will no longer be silenced.

  • Mass immigration must be opposed EVEN IF all the newcomers are intelligent, hardworking, and do wonders for the economy.

    A nation is, first and foremost, about race, culture, heritage, and history.

    Economy serves the material needs of a nation. It is NOT the heart and soul of a nation. After all, even a poor nation has value and meaning based on its race, culture, and heritage.

    West Germany was rich, East Germany was relatively poor. So, economically, one was better than the other. But East Germany was still just as racially and culturally rich in Germanness as West Germany was because of its demographics. Both nations, despite ideological and economic differences, were German in the deepest historical and cultural sense.

    Same with South Korea and North Korea. South is immeasurably richer than the North, but it is not richer in identity, heritage, and culture since the North, despite its poverty, is just as Korean as South Korea. In identity, North is just as rich as the South. Indeed, it may be richer because South is surrendering as whore to US-dominated globalism.

    It’s like even a poor Jew is just as Jewish(in the racial and cultural sense) as a rich Jew.

    Cultural wealth is different from material wealth.

    A poor Jew who maintains his Jewishness in identity, history, and heritage is culturally richer than a rich Jew who, despite his wealth and privilege, abandons his identity and heritage and is content to be come faceless and crass consumer. Such a Jew may be materially rich, but he would be culturally famished and impoverished.

    (Because white people are starved and dispossessed of the richness of racial and cultural identity, they satiate their hunger for cultural roots by serving the racial and cultural identities of others. As cucks forbidden to feed on their own racial and cultural identity/heritage, they gorge on AIPAC chicken-feed that makes them cluck for Israel, Israel, and Israel. Or they become like Rachel Dolezal & Shaun King and feed on the identity of blacks. Humans have a natural longing to belong to something, and when they are denied the right to belong to their own kind, they need to attach their famished emotions to some other identity. It’s like Uncle Tom Blacks, denied the chance of black pride, found meaning in shucking and jiving for white massuh.)

    Throughout their history, Jews were sometimes rich, sometimes poor, sometimes powerful, sometimes powerless. But if there was a connective link through those 3,500 yrs, it was the sense of shared identity, history, and heritage.. and the collective dream of returning to the Promised Land, the homeland. Even when Jews were at their material-poorest, their racial-cultural value was just as rich as when they’d been prosperous.

    Now, suppose Finland will become materially richer by having 5 million Hindus or Chinese come and become ‘New Finns’. Suppose every one of those newcomers is a law-abiding and hard-working and decent person. Suppose these newcomers do wonders for the economy.

    So, is it worth it to allow them in? Only if your idea of nation is purely materialistic and not racial, cultural. or historical. According to materialism, the soil of Finland is chemically no different from soil in Russia, China, and India. According to materialism, Finnishness = GDP numbers and Finn = worker or consumer or voter.

    But if your idea of nation is racial, cultural, and historical, the land of the Finns is where your ancestors and heroes are buried. And Finnishness has meaning and value beyond the latest data of economic output. It is about national kinship and shared historical memory.

    Of course, Jews know this, which is why they carefully guard the racial, cultural, historical, and territorial integrity of Israel. But Jews seek to weaken gentile nations by economizing their identity, culture, territory, and destiny.

    DO AS THE JEWS DO.

    DISOBEY WHAT THE JEWS SAY.

    Hey! Do your readers a favor and link to the PBS report.

    You and Big Guy made a good impression. No doubt cat-lady type viewers will be horrified, but some others will be intrigued.

    Here’s an idea: make a video about Paoli (a video tour through time, space, and ideas). The visuals of closed businesses were powerful. Explain what happened there, and what y’all are doing about it.

    “But, like desperate crackheads sifting through a shag carpet, they’re doing their best to find the tiniest bit of Racism & Trump to catch a buzz off of.”

    Your columns continue to inform and entertain, primarily because you are not taking yourselves as seriously as this left liberal media does: They’re so stultifyingly pompous, that you can’t get through the rhetoric. Whereas you guys crack me up every single time!

  • Dustin

    Guys, I hate to break it to you, but do you know what “normie” is? It is a term used by people with severe mental disabilities, people with things like autism, to refer to normal people without those disabilities. That is what “normie” is.

    You are really spilling a giant bucket of mud, the worst mud-bucket imaginable, over both yourselves and the entire alt-right with your use of this term.

    • Calm down, Dustin.

      The term has been appropriated by the imageboard/altright subculture to refer to anybody who isn’t within the subculture. It’s a lighthearted term.

    • Dustin

      Yeah but the problem is that the alt-right (something that I include myself in) already has a bigtime image problem, and this is from before some alt-righters started using “normie”. It would be bad enough if it weren’t for the image problem we already have, but it’s the kiss of death when combined with the previously existing image problem that we’re all a bunch of mentally ill bigots. It up-plays extremely negative preexisting stereotypes about us.

    • WP

      You need to pull on your big boy underpants Dustin. Your whole post screams “Look at me, I’m a beta male. People say I have a self image problem, but Mommy tells me not to listen to strangers. Please won’t someone tell me how great I am, and how every women should want to be with me. My mommy tells me I’m the best boy ever!” You need to man up.

    “Racism is a huge obstacle to a kind of class solidarity. And that, as long as real-life Dougs hold on to their identity politics, that obstacle will remain.” – If only Doug would vote for people that hate him and celebrate the passing of his family.

    We should all remember how blacks don’t care about us the next time they expect us to care about them. Free ride over. The fossil record might care but not US.
