Power makes all the difference

Who has power, who doesn’t.

Everything in politics ultimately boils down to that.

    Mainstream normiecons will always engage in false moral equivalences.

    Regardless of the merits of either of those, power makes all the difference, and makes comparing them like comparing apples and oranges.

    If you are not pro-White, then you are anti-White. No other options.

    Also, pretending there are large numbers of “white identitarians” is also disgustingly dishonest. Up until very recently, that was a fringes thing.

    The CRT folks are the ones lighting the fires of increased white identitarianism. It will be our undoing of whatever is left of this country:

      Agreed, Elspeth.

      Glen Loury is spot-on.

      When white identitarianism does come, I suspect it won’t be a problem for identitarians of other races. I don’t blame or fault blacks, East Asians, or Latinos for promoting group interests. They might be rivals, but I don’t see them as enemies.

      But there are a LOT of white people that are going to get it. They’ve been shoving shame and hatred down the throats of their fellow whites for so long that the vengeance is going to be ugly. And sweet.

        When I think of group interests, my mind zeroes in on my family first. They are followed by my fellow Christians with whom I worship across ethnic lines.

        I don’t think of my fate as inherently intertwined with other black people. But then I’ve spent most of my adult life on the outside of the cultural paradigms of the moment.

    I always thought “white identitarianism” was “British Israelism”, i.e. “the white race are the real Jews.” That’s not what it means?

    I just wonder what the majority is to do in the face of all this? Identity politics crowded out the interest of working families. That was not a good thing.

      No, it wasn’t.

      Which is the point for the powers that be.

      Divide and conquer.

      Twas ever thus…

        You’re very much right about one point, identity politics is divisive. While people of any race or ethnicity can be be a working family with the same issues.
        I am still mad at Hillary for the dismissive and condescending attitude she had for the West Virginia coal truck driver in 2016. Her husband knew better.

        Yes.

        Hillary is a snob.

    Everything in politics ultimately boils down to that.

    Encapsulated in two words: who, whom.

    Very true. Have you noticed the incredible irony in this?

    That power makes all the difference is the very idea that the critical race theorists used to replace the older egalitarian liberalism with their own brand of nonsense. In the 1960s, most people who preached against “racism” did so on the grounds that “racism” was a violation of liberalism with its (mutually exclusive, but that is not the point here) ideals of egalitarianism and individualism. In the place of “racism”, the liberals wanted “colour-blindness”. The critical race theorists, of course, claim that “colour blindness” is racist. The basic difference between their idea and that of liberalism, is that to the critical race theorists, “racism” is not primarily about noticing race, regarding different races as superior or inferior, or even hating certain races, but power. “Racism” – or now “white supremacy”, an expression that at one time indicated an ideological form of white racism – can only be committed by those with power, in their view, and that means whites, and it is “racism” which perpetuates that power, and keeps those without power, from having it. This is, of course, the old Marxist making everything about a perpetual struggle between the “haves” and the “have nots” run to seed. How anyone could ever take is seriously is beyond me.

    Which makes it extremely ironical that the critical race theorists are the ones with power and the white identitarians are not.

      Every few years the Left comes up with new, even more ridiculous epistemological contortions to keep their grift going. This will continue until they are removed from power by force and dumped in mass graves.
