Racism for Fun and Profit

(Anit-White diatribe above delivered by pasty white skinned Mark Shea.)

Dave Griffey at Daffey Thoughts notes the ever increasing racism of the ever increasingly deranged Left:

I’ve said that before.  The modern Left is using the term White the way Nazis used the word Jew.  It’s gaining steam.  Almost overnight, not only can any individual say whites should be eradicated from the planet, but increasingly anyone who protests will be put in the same spot as Jews protesting the Nazis.  It’s what happened then, and it’s happening now.  In Christian circles, we call it sin.

You can see the development in a story that developed recently about racism on a college campus.  I saw the story when it broke, that two students had been arrested for hurtling racist words at fellow students.  I didn’t realize you could be arrested for using racist words. Given the growing number of words and phrases – especially if used by white people – that is called racist, that’s bothersome in itself.

But when the story was unpacked, and the suspects shown, I couldn’t help but notice that they neither looked white, nor did their names sound particularly Anglo-European.  It turns out they aren’t white.  And yet, a Princeton Professor runs in to explain that it’s still the evil of whiteness that has done this.  You see, they are still ‘white’ in that by becoming racist, they were simply being tainted by the disease of whiteness.  White is used as being synonymous with sin; with evil.  This is very much in the way the Nazis saw the uncleanness of Jews, or the taint of Jewishness in the new Reich.

It’s all very alarming of course.  Too many Christians have accepted this idea that evil only came to the world through the Christian West, therefore if there are problems, it’s our fault.  If Muslims in CAIR say Christians who believe in salvation through Jesus should be barred from holding office, then it’s no doubt fine.  If black editors write about their hatred for and disdain for the suffering of whites, it’s what we deserve.  If people side with tyranny, communism and slaughter as long as it’s not for anything linked to the Western Tradition, then it’s OK.

The bigotry we lament took centuries, or millennia, to develop when it comes to racism against blacks, Jews and others.  It has taken barely a generation or so to develop today.  That means that what capped off these long developments in the form of Jim Crow, lynchings, segregation and the gas chambers, will likely cap off much sooner this time around.

I’m not saying ‘whites of the world unite!’   I’m saying most in most groups probably don’t think this way – yet.  In fact, the biggest noise makers in this development are liberal whites.  The same liberal whites increasingly intolerant of black conservatives, black African priests, Asian Republicans and others who get off the leftist plantation.  Sure, all groups have their bad apples.  And I don’t believe for a minute that there aren’t some out there in decidedly non-white demographics who want their pound of tyrannical flesh.

But if we keep on with a ‘gee Dave, what can we do, we need to get along’ approach that assumes as long as Christians are compromised, we’ll be like Chamberlain going back to Munich three years later and trying again.  We will deserve the hatred and contempt that future generations who pay the price of our folly will have for us.

Go here to comment.  That most of the people pushing anti-White racism are themselves white, including Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez,  only adds the element of the absurd to all this.  Racism is wrong, full stop.  When we take out the “full stop” we travel down a very dark road indeed.

  1. Man is made in the image and likeness of The Supreme Sovereign Being, the infinite Trinity, God. Perfect LOVE, JUSTICE and MERCY.
    Unless man behaves in the sovereign personhood of our “Creator”, that is, following in the footsteps of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, through God’s abundant mercy, man will become what he hates the most: Death, War, Famine and Pestilence.
    Atheism imposed by the state removes God from the public square, leaving man naked to chaos and destruction.

  2. When man is naked to corruption and choas in the public square it does not matter what color his skin is, or even his religion, if that man can be enslaved and tyrannized.

  3. I was going back and forth with Shea on his blog and at one point he responded with comments like “you lust for blood” and get terrified at anyone with “brown skin”. I scrolled up through the comments to see what he could have been talking to…. since what he and I were going on about had nothing to do with lusting for blood or anything with skin color. Until I realized that his comment was directly in response to one of mine (not one above). It was hard not laugh (and then immediately log off… because where do you go from that?). I reminded me of that scene from Invasion of the Body Snatchers – just point and scream those claims and now everyone will swarm and discount everything I say. And all Shea had to do was throw some calumny that didn’t fit…. or, point and scream.

  4. I wonder how Shea would defend his considerate behavior to Michael Matt and Voris now.
    I rewatched the Voris/Shea debate… it was nice to see them disagreeing but getting along. Weird to think that that was once Shea.
    But if someone from his blog (a follower/supporter) would press him “why did you joke around with such a terrible racist/sexist/bigot?!” I wonder what he would say.
    Considering his rhetoric now how would he respond to not be guilty by association?

  5. Unfortunately the very terms in which national repentance is recommended to him conceal its true nature. By a dangerous figure of speech, he calls the Government not ‘they’ but ‘we’. And since, as penitents, we are not encouraged to be charitable to our own sins, nor to give ourselves the benefit of any doubt, a Government which is called ‘we’ is ipso facto placed beyond the sphere of charity or even of justice. You can say anything you please about it. You can indulge in the popular vice of detraction without restraint, and yet feel all the time that you are practising contrition. A group of such young penitents will say, ‘Let us repent our national sins’; what they mean is, ‘Let us attribute to our neighbour (even our Christian neighbour) in the Cabinet. whenever we disagree with him, every abominable motive that Satan can suggest to our fancy.’

    -CS Lewis, ‘The Dangers of National Repentance’

    Of course nowadays it seems instead of the nation, now it’s the race. So instead of national sins, it’s not the racial, historical sins being used.

    Nothing new under the sun indeed…

  6. Care I post this @chezami on Twitter? What a freaking nut case that guy is! FB has a profane page called “Shark Blea.” Its frequent use of expletives worthy of a submarine sailor (like me) is however inappropriate for a public forum. But my goodness, the parody fits him so well. That guy is completely wacko. Mark Shea – pasty white left coast liberal deriding other pasty whites (who happen to be conservative) for being pasty white. The cognitive dissonance is astounding!

  7. Poverty on a scale that dwarfs Venezuela is the Green New Deal. A few will have the green. The masses will have the raw deal.

    Question.
    What incentive will exist for a fortune 400 company to employ the thousands and have the earnings torn apart by the GND via taxes?

    Will they shut down or move completely out of the country to avoid the rape?

    AOC is a menace.
