The natural law enjoins us to love devotedly and to defend the country in which we were born, and in which we were brought up, so that every good citizen hesitates not to face death for his native landâ€¦. We are bound, then, to love dearly the country whence we have received the means of engagement this mortal life affords
A simple thought on the absurdity plaguing us today:
We have reached the ultimate stage of absurdity when White people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, while Blacks are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing today?
FYI this, much like my thoughts on disappointment and pride was a correction of Ben Shapiro’s words, is a correction and clarification of Thomas Sowell’s. I’m not as bound by political correctness and a speak more freely, bluntly, and accurately than he can.
Make no mistake! This is not hyperbole. What #Wokeness demands is the absolute subjugation of the White race and the dissolution of American culture. And that is the moderate position. Their extremists would prefer to see us Whites “removed” from existence. And, they’ve already been fairly successful at pushing the first steps of this upon the White race in the West. Unless stopped, they will push things to this extent. It’s only a matter of time and our apathy or cowardice.
But let me be clear; this isn’t really a conspiracy. This is a multivalent, grassroots movement intent upon reaching an equality of results between Whites and non-Whites – especially the Blacks, who are the prime examples of failure in most previous attempts. It’s just, as each step fails to to provide the Woke with any success, they become more and more extreme and more convince that the problem is White Supremacy and Whiteness in and of itself. And that, if left unculled, can have only one final result. whether its proponents understand that or not.
… And, by “backdoor reparations” I don’t mean titularly White queers and trannies going the mandingo route. No, I mean sneaking reparations – i.e., the theft of Whites’ money in the name of Social Justice – in through the backdoor and trying to hide what they actually are through creative use of dog-whistles.
Specifically, Biden and Co., especially the blacktivist they appointed as acting FHFA Director after firing the incumbent Director for the sole reason of being a White man and, therefor, not representing this administration’s values, have decided that responsible people with decent credit scores, most of whom are White, will be forced to pay extra on their mortgages in order subsidize the mortgages of loan seekers with poor credit, most of whom are Black.
And yes, People; this went into effect a week ago on May 1, 2023, though I believe good, worthwhile people won’t begin feeling the pain for a while as they setup the mechanisms to enforce these reparations.
It Doesn’t matter whether it’s the KKK or any of the Woke sorts; hatred for a race of people is hatred for a race of people. The KKK and the Woke are just mirror image hate.
Of course, the internal, national and racial enemies of the American people will vociferously, stridently, and violently refute this claim of similarity to the few actual White Supremacists left in America. In their minds, only Whites can be racist, and all Whites are actively or passively racist… because they’re White.
Starting in the mid-1950s, America has been dealing with nigh on constant cries – often violent cries – for equality and the destruction of what racial activists have decried as White Supremacy. That was, as problematical and poorly thought out as it was, a necessary pain. There was at that time deliberate and government-enforced inequality between Whites and non-Whites. As such, cries for equality were not inherently a bad thing.
In all truth, back then, it was a good and necessary thing that they won and that the Civil Rights Movement, for all its chaos and flaws, won the day. Though, even then, it was not enough for the Blacks or their enablers and even the venerated MLK later decided that “reparations” should be handed out to his people, thereby setting the stage for later woes.
And therein was the rot that twisted and distorted Civil Rights into the sick caricature and anti-American thing it is today. Equality was decided soon after it was achieved to be not nearly enough.
Equity vs. Equality
Equality – what used to be purported as a good thing and a goal – meant each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities. Equity – the Left’s and their minorities’ newspeak for wanting more – states that each person has different circumstances and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome irrespective of those circumstances or their input into the process.
Yes; that’s the sad and maddening truth of what Civil Rights have been corrupted into devolving down to. Equality is deprecated among minorities, especially the Blacks, and their “woke” enablers in these times. Now the word is “Equity” and it is a strident demand for special privileges and advantages, preferably and most often mandatorily at the expense of White people, especially White Men, and most especially Straight White Men.
And this isn’t just hateful and wrongheaded rhetoric. Both government agencies and private sector corporations are putting tangible measure into place to give minorities special advantages and privileges, including but not limited to: prioritized hiring and promotions, special career-based educational programs, and special protections against Whites.
At The Risk Of “Shadowing” Things
At the marginal risk of “shadowing” the issue and its problems, and repeating the judgemental errors of the Warren Court’s opinion on Roe v. Wade, it’s my opinion that the actions taken to further Equity instead of Equality are not just wrong, racist, sexist, heterophobic, and pernicious, they’re unconstitutional and a violation of White people’s – specially Straight White Men – Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause. There is little to no functional difference between providing special benefits to people based upon their race, creed, color, gender, or sexual proclivities and denying them such based upon those same criteria. Either way, it falls solidly under the Penumbra of the 14th Amendment and, hence, should be considered a violation of the Civil Rights Act.
Of course, the Left, their minorities, and their politicians disagree with this. Or rather, even if they agree with the premise, they don’t care. Their point in switching from equality to equity was explicitly to take current wealth and future opportunity from Whites and redistribute to others. And, the taking is at least as important to them as their redistributing is.
