Liberals Fear Latinos?

Almost every election and during the course of many court cases Americans have to hear how various and sundry Liberals and Progressives claim that they will emigrate to Canada if things don’t go their way. This is especially true right now with Donald Trump being the presumptive Republican Nominee for POTUS.

This is especially ironic since our domestic enemies at once deride Trump and a racist and always say they’re going to ever-so-White Canada and never oh-so-brown Mexico.

Seems to me that these hand wringing, abuse spewing Leftists are actually afraid of- and hateful towards Latinos, the very demographic that they so vocally pander to and claim that Americans oppress so horribly. Elsewise, why wouldn’t they ever threaten to move to Mexico with its socialized medicine, lower cost of living, and generally nicer climate?

A Dark, Hateful Truth

Liberals and Progressives, almost all of whom happen to be White, seem to hold a deep love for the Blacks that they enable and pander to. This is, however, an one-sided and utterly unrequited love. The dark and hateful truth is that the Blacks hate those White Liberals and Progressives nigh on as much as they hate the average White American.

No matter how much liberals try to remove themselves from the burden of racism, white supremacist ideology – which governs all systems in America – holds them just as guilty to its effects. Like Pilate, their hands are still full of so much blood; though they may not directly offer up communities of color and indigenous communities to be discriminated against and oppressed, colorblind policies do very little to stop the mass annihilation of a deeply marginalized people.

Appearances can be deceiving. Sure, liberals may be down for the cause, march in our marches, go through the anti-racism trainings, attend conferences on social justice and reconciliation, advocate for equal pay and living wages, press for an end to mass incarceration and police brutality, and even quote the thought leaders of our present day movements – so long as the freedoms of others do not threaten their own, they are there. But the moment, the moment, when the freedoms and power of people of color and indigenous folks appear to threaten their own sense of ownership, pride, and identity, they function just as criminal as the conservative other.

The funny thing is that it’s doubtful that the Liberals and Progressives would be too offended to find out how the Blacks really think of them. Liberals’ and Progressives’ views of Blacks is odd and rather pernicious mix of paternalism ala “The White Man’s Burden” and ethno-guiltism. Hence, they both expect no better from the Blacks and derive some sort pleasure from the Blacks’ hatred, it feeding their pathological need for punishment.

White Male Privilege?

In America these days we’re forced to hear a lot about privilege, especially “White Privilege” and to a somewhat lesser degree “Male Privilege.” And, of course, the upshot of this is that America’s domestic enemies promulgate the meme that the White Male is the source of everyone else’s woes.

You’ve got to love it almost as much as you love the truth of your White and/or Male privilege.

I Love My White Male Privilege

Yes, sad and frustrating to say, that is essentially the truth. Oh sure, one can argue the specifics of his claims – one can always argue the specifics of such claims, elsewise the clerisy would run out of grant requests – but in this case the devil isn’t in the detail, the devil’s in the situation as a whole.

So yes, my gentle readers, both racism and sexism are alive and well in America. They’re both also institutional if one can describe current culture and the laws and political rhetoric as an institution. It’s just that the racism, when correctly defined, is now aimed at Whites and the sexism is aimed at men. Hence, woe betide the “privileged” White Man.

Nor is this new. The shift in racism and sexism began generations ago in the early 1960s and has continued its degenerative path until this day. Indeed, the entire basis of “privilege” is nothing but a means to marginalized and silence anyone who speaks out against the ant-White racism and misandrist sexism of today. Once can not inaccurately call “Privilege” the new “Uppity.”
