The Liberals’ Racism

white-mans-burden-jpg Liberals and Progressives are really into labeling American Whites as racists, all the while ignoring and/or denying their racism which, in point of fact, is more endemic and more pernicious than anything that has been been displayed by any measurable number of Americans for more than a generation.

Theirs is the racism of lowered expectation and the caretaker mentality that goes with it. Note that this racist attitude is nothing new and has been used as an excuse for far greater harm than the modern Liberals and Progressives attempt.

The White Man’s Burden

Take up the White Man’s burden–
Send forth the best ye breed–
Go bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives’ need;
To wait in heavy harness,
On fluttered folk and wild–
Your new-caught, sullen peoples,
Half-devil and half-child.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
In patience to abide,
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple,
An hundred times made plain
To seek another’s profit,
And work another’s gain.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
The savage wars of peace–
Fill full the mouth of Famine
And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest
The end for others sought,
Watch sloth and heathen Folly
Bring all your hopes to nought.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
No tawdry rule of kings,
But toil of serf and sweeper–
The tale of common things.
The ports ye shall not enter,
The roads ye shall not tread,
Go mark them with your living,
And mark them with your dead.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better,
The hate of those ye guard–
The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah, slowly!) toward the light:–
“Why brought he us from bondage,
Our loved Egyptian night?”

Take up the White Man’s burden–
Ye dare not stoop to less–
Nor call too loud on Freedom
To cloke your weariness;
By all ye cry or whisper,
By all ye leave or do,
The silent, sullen peoples
Shall weigh your gods and you.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
Have done with childish days–
The lightly proferred laurel,
The easy, ungrudged praise.
Comes now, to search your manhood
Through all the thankless years
Cold, edged with dear-bought wisdom,
The judgment of your peers!

— Rudyard Kipling
McClure’s Magazine, 1899

Rudyard Kipling’s poem, while fully steeped in the Colonialism of the 19th century, still describes “White Man’s burden” that the Liberals and Progressives want to foist onto all of our shoulders. It may be politics, legislation, and activism in these times instead of war and “benevolent” conquest, but the underlying sentiment is the same – that the White Man must bear the burden of tending and “raising” the various minority subcultures in America.

The only fundamental differences are that this is now a domestic effort instead of foreign adventure, and what was an excuse is now the sole reason for shouldering the burden of these sullen people.

No, the dear-bought wisdom of a bygone age was frittered away and lost upon the Liberals and Progressives. Yet, times and Man do not truly change and one need only look to Africa or to Detroit to see what this shadow of Colonialism will lead to in its inevitable failure.
