Anti-White Politics (2)

by Ilana Mercer

It’s not identity politics, it’s anti-white politics.

Every time a racist, anti-white event goes down, which is often, conservative media call it “identity politics.” “The left is playing identity politics.” But whatever is gripping and convulsing the country, it’s not identity politics. Blacks are not being incited against Hispanics. Hispanics are not being turned on Asians, and Ameri-Indians aren’t being urged to attack the groups just mentioned. Rather, they’re all piling on honky. That’s anti-white politics or animus.

The anger of the multicultural multitudes is directed exclusively at whites and their so-called privilege. Anti-whitism is becoming institutionalized, systemic and therefore dangerous. Never once, however, is the thing called what is it: non-stop and dangerous incitement to hate innocent whites for their alleged pigmental privilege.

Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a proxy for the white-hot hatred of whites. White men, especially. “Trump supporters” is a proxy for “white persons.” The conflation of “white” and “Trump supporter” was made by one anti-white, anti-Trump, professional agitator: he is Trevor Noah of the “Daily Show.” Like me, Noah is a South African. He is neither funny nor very bright. But, as an anti-white agitator, he knows of what he speaks.

Conservatives, for their part, persist in avoiding the anti-white issue. Used mainly by media conservatives, “identity politics” is invoked, consciously or unconsciously, it would seem, because conservatives want to be nice. To be nice, you must be in denial of things not nice. Conservatives refuse to come to terms with the fact that our politics are almost exclusively anti-white, and not anti-Other, more exotic identities.

It’s also considered politically incorrect or “racist” to defend whites—even if whites as whites are being dangerously maligned and marginalized; even if there is an anti-white sentiment that runs through our institutions, both public and private. And God help those who propagate the idea of white ethnocide, say in South Africa. Do that, and you are then libeled as a racist.

The logical paradox is that to warn of systemic hatred against browns and blacks is considered racially virtuous; to fear the same for whites is deemed incorrigibly racist. So, for fear of being dubbed racists, media conservatives simply look the other way. They refuse to acknowledge our anti-white politics.

Here’s the primitive dynamic or dance conservatives go through when wanting to hide from the realities of anti-white politics: they pretend that “identity politics” is an extension of Democratic politics that aims to divide one and all. To that end, conservatives routinely shout about how the “Dems are dividing us.” By so doing, conservatives, always eager to get along, also virtue-signal their position as seekers of national unity. “We’re in this together; Democrats aren’t.”

That’s a whole other level of denial, given that, it’s not exclusively identity politics that Democrats are presiding over, but politics dangerously anti-white.

Again: blacks are not berating Hispanics for dominating industries they previously dominated. Asians aren’t complaining about Ameri-Indians being given university slots they’ve earned. Rather, blacks, Hispanics, Asian Indians and others are all piling on whites.

It’s not identity politics, it’s anti-white politics:

    I have been trying to find a reference to the vote in the United States’ legislature, opposed by Edward Kennedy, to maintain the European identity of that country. No doubt somebody will come to my aid. Vladimir Putin has recently said that America is not longer a white Christian country, unlike his own, just look at the assembled Duma.
    In 1968, Enoch Powell made his Rivers of Blood speech and was supported by over 90% of the population of the United Kingdom. The 1970s marked the entry of Marxist students into politics in the West and the birth of the notion of multiculturalism.
    It was obvious to all of my parents’ generation what the ultimate outcome would be and we have now arrived at that point. Where Europeans go from here is anybody’s guess. Do we all follow white South Africans into seeking refuge where we can?
    It is true that the mantra is now that whatever whites do is wrong and whatever people of colour do is right. Or, rather, if they do wrong then it is all down to the wrong done to them by Europeans in the past or in the present.

    Somebody has had the temerity to publish a report in the United Kingdom on the overrepresentation of non-whites on British television. The head of drama at the BBC, Piers Wenger, has defended the use of non-whites to play whites in period dramas by saying that it reflects Modern Britain and that he chooses the best talent that is available to play such parts, suggesting that Britain is sadly lacking in talented native white actors. Imagine if he had said the opposite! But Wenger has exposed himself and the whole anti-white agenda. To have objected would label native whites as racist. Many here will remember that there was an outcry in the 1970s when actor Michael Bates played the character of an Indian punkah wallah in the tv comedy, “It ain’t half hot, Mum”. About the same time or a bit later the “Black and White Minstrel Show” was deemed to be racist and the worst type of cultural appropriation. But it is strange that “cultural appropriation” is a one way street. The list of examples of where non-Europeans have expropriated European cultural would be very long indeed, including the use of non-white actors to play Europeans in period drama. But if Europeans protest they are racist and if they expect to play non-Europeans they are racist. So they cannot win. The aim seems to be to so demoralise Europeans that they will just give up and exit the scene; but where to? European societies, indeed civilisation, are now imploding but the world without them will be a very different place. In the 1980s I remarked that this was ridiculous, Europeans would be wiped out and was called paranoid. I am wondering if the person who accused me of paranoia then will now accept that I had a point.

    The quoted statistic that only 3% of the British population is “Black”, i.e. African or Caribbean, is almost certainly an underestimate in 2020, but it is not “reflected” in the succession of 100% solely “black” faces in recent numerous TV adverts, or their prevalence in “The Guardian” illustrations, or the numbers in leg-sports and “music” or in children’s drama, school book illustrations — despite complaints of institutional racism, white privilege, discrimination, &c. I think I can comment without being accused of “prejudice” after several years’ teaching “black” teenagers, include the young Dame Sharon White whose gifted IQ level was as outstanding as her industry and manners.
