Racism

In the thread below, commenter Duck's Here pointed out that Peter Brimelow gave a speech at CPAC 2012. Brimelow has a reputation as a white supremacist.

White folks are not the only racists on the planet.

Indeed, Samuel L. Jackson a civil rights activist after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., and today an actor and film producer, is a racist and very proud to say so.

From this source:
Barack Obama's politics meant nothing to Samuel L. Jackson because the "Pulp Fiction" star only voted for the president for one reason and one reason only ... because he's black.

In an interview with Ebony magazine, Jackson explained, "I voted for Barack because he was black. 'Cuz that's why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them ... That's American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didn't mean [bleep] to me."

[...]

"...I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, 'cuz he ain't gotta worry about getting re-elected."
At his blog, Beakerkin points out that in America today, it is acceptable to excoriate white racists, but not black ones:
Now there are some false hypocritical lefties all worked up about Peter Brimelow at CPAC. Did the same folks express any concern about a President who sat rapt in a Church with a pastor spewing anti-American Black Liberation Theology? Did the same crew say a word about a President addressing La Raza?...
Clearly, we are not living in post-racial America, nor do we have a post-racial President:

  2. ... and yes, it's ok when they do it. Progressivism is all about erasing bedrock standards and principles and granting special privileges to approved groups.

  3. Of course it is time to trot out this old relic. How else to get out the black vote?

  4. Brimelow runs the VDARE.com site.

    He's a white supremacist who fits right in with CPAC.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Of course what you fail to note is that no one got "worked up" about Brimelow being at CPAC. It's as natural as Breitbart being a liar.

    Just kabuki for the fringe right.

  6. Who the heck is Peter Brimlow? I f he is a white supremest, then it is despicable that CPAC allowed him to speak. Just because the liberals justify racism, we conservatives should not. On the other hand, we should not fear speaking out on black racism.

  7. Duck,
    Of course what you fail to note is that no one got "worked up" about Brimelow being at CPAC.

    Really?

    Well, in my view, somebody SHOULD have!

    Was Brimelow a keynote speaker or merely in one of the smaller rooms at the convention? I'll see if I can find out.

    ReplyDelete
  8. There does seem to have been controversy about Brimelow's being there.

    I do note that the panel that Brimelow was on was scheduled at an "off time."

    More information from VDARE:

    Peter Brimelow is going to be one of the speakers at a Pro-English Breakout session. He'll speak on the Canadian experience of bilingualism.

    ProEnglish to Host Panel Discusson at CPAC 2012:

    “The Failure of Multiculturalism”

    ARLINGTON, VA—ProEnglish, the nation’s leading advocate of official English, is a co-sponsor of CPAC 2012 and will be hosting an all-star panel discussion during the 3-day conference. Panelists will discuss issues of immigration and assimilation which are presenting severe challenges to the long term viability of America. The event will be open to all CPAC attendees. You can register for CPAC here.

    WHAT:

    "The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the pursuit of diversity is weakening the American identity"...


    More at the above link.

    It is not clear to me that CPAC per se invited Brimelow.

  9. HERE is video of Brimelow at CPAC. I haven't watched yet, but will do so now.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Anyway, the point of this post isn't Brimelow per se, but rather that racism cuts both ways.

    ReplyDelete
  11. As I have been saying for years, "If you voted for Obama because he's black, you're a racist. If you voted for him because he's white, you're a racist. If, like me, you voted against him because he's a socialist, you're an American!"

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm not surprised at Samuel L. Jackson, I'm sure he's not alone in voting for Obama simply because of race.

  13. CPAC's been rather inconsequential since it became a pro-gay marriage circuit party interspersed with Paultards and John Birch Society movement ressurectionists.

    Brimelow being there is just more of the same of that decline in first principles and surrender of the conservative high ground to "meet in the middle" of the moderate-leftist low ground.

    CINO-PAC is what they should call it.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Mr. Brimelow's remarks on that video are practically unintelligible.

    I've heard of him for years, but have only read an article or two of his now and then which seemed AOKn with me.

    The guy may be a poor speaker with bad diction and worse hair, but he's also an individual with a great deal of solid accomplishment to his credit.

    I agree wholeheartedly with his views on the demographic disaster our post-1965 Immigration Policy -- a policy DELIBERATELY DESIGNED by liberals to DESTROY our naturally-occurring WHITE MAJORITY -- has caused.

    And I'll say it straight out: Anyone who is loathed and despised by the likes of The Southern Poverty Law Center MUST be a very very very GREAT American.

    Also, I would distrust the philosophical orientation of any publication that would choose to feature "KNOWN AS A WHITE-SUPREMACIST" in anything purporting to be a "biography" of any person with a solid record of protean accomplishments.

    "We" if there is such as thing as "we," which I am doubting more each day, must stop letting CULTURAL MARXISTS define our champions with pejorative labels in their damnable attempt to shame "us" whoever we are out of existence.

    Everybody on earth is a "racist" according to "their" definition which "we have so foolishly permitted "them" to foist on "us."

    "They" -- i.e. people of Ducky's ilk -- are determined to transform once-proud "us" from "racists" into "SUICIDISTS."

    In other words we white Christian people -- -- should be the ONLY ethnic group on earth required to abase and demean itself out of existence.

    The defamation, discrediting and destruction of WHITE, PROTESTANT-CHRISTIAN, CAPITALIST ASCENDANCY and DOMINANCE has been one of the primary goals of "Progressivism" -- or whatever the hell you want to call it -- since the movement began.

    DON'T fall for it.

  15. FT,

    I don't know about that. Then, again, I don't keep up with the SLPLC.

    Whatever the truth about Brimelow, the Left is vilifying CPAC because he was present on a panel discussion -- and keeping mum about some blatant instances of "reverse racism." That's the point of my post. The hypocrisy is surreal.

    ReplyDelete
  16. If speaking the truth about race is "racist" then Brimelow is a "racist."

    ...but then anyone who tells the truth about Islam is a "racist" too.

    ...and anyone who speaks the truth about Israel is an " anti- Semite.

    We need to start moving AWAY from these silly labels, people. Calling someone a RACIST doesn't discount what the man might have to say. And if what he says is the truth, like that a disproportionate number of African Americans are on welfare, is THAT really "racist?". Or is it simply the truth?

    FT is right. We need to stop letting other people pre-define whom we should or should not listen to.

    ReplyDelete
  17. ...because AoW is also right. If you are a member of an historically victimized group, and are screaming for special priviledges... how "racist" is THAT?

    It's a double standard that the Left imposes upon the world, and it's time that someone called them on it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Double standard is the exact term I was about to use, FJ.

    Well, "we" have been calling "them" on it for a long time now, and it doesn't seem to have made much-if-any difference, has it?

    The Truth cannot be destroyed, but mankind has an infinity capacity for ignoring it, defaming it and misrepresenting it.

    That's why we're traditionally classified as a "Fallen" species, I guess.

    ~ FreeThinke

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thank you, FJ, especially for affirming that "we" must stop letting "them" define "us" -- and worse -- ACCEPTING their assessments.

    Anther great trick of leftists is to represent what-has-always-been-accepted as right, good and true to be either wicked, illusory self-deceptive, or an outright LIE.

    We see examples of this technique all the time with leftist gadflies at websites who use long strings of pejorative labels and adjectives in reference to dear and familiar customs, mores, religious tenets, values, venerated objects, and heroic figures from "our" culture.

    The left constantly attaches these strings of labels to figures they fear or dislike for not supporting the Leftist Agenda all the while portraying THEIR motives as pure, good, high-minded and "compassionate."

    Wikipedia's tag line in their biographical article on Peter Brimelow -- "known as a white-supremacist" --reveals their bias.

    Anyone who has the unmitigated gall to tell the world that only white people of European and British extraction produced The Parthenon, the Pantheon, Gothic Cathedrals, Praxitieles, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Bernini, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Shakespeare, Milton, Sheridan, Dickens, Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, Bartok, Palladio, Christopher Wren, Frank Lloyd Wrong, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Eli Whitney, Robert Fulton, Elias Howe, Edison, the Wright Brothers, Semmelweiss, Alexander Fleming, Jonas Salk, Steve Jobs, etc., etc., etc. is automatically categorized as a RACIST, a BIGOT and even a "FASCIST" or a "NAZI" by the professional prevaricators and character assassins of the left.

    The White Christian West has in the main been a vast, long-running, ever-growing SUCCESS, despite the obvious flaws and setbacks those who live to destroy the Christian West love to point out with spite, malice, reckless abandon and unholy joy.

    If one IS manifestly superior, one should not be expected to APOLOGIZE for it, DENIGRATE it, or DENY it.

    Instead, the REST of the world -- hose manifestly INFERIOR -- should be expected to EMULATE the achievements and adopt the mentality of their betters.

    The view from the left is PERVERSE.

  20. The Left is capitalizing on "white guilt," which is promoted via many ways: the education system, the media, the churches, etc.

    There's my pithy comment for the moment. Gotta run! The home care vet is here!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is one WHITE person who is NOT going to let ANYONE make him feel the least bit guilty for being what he is.

    By the same token, as a white person of little or no consequence I don't for a moment imagine that I am the equivalent of all the great figures mentioned above.

    But media-fabricated modern "heroes" like Martin Luther King, elevated to mythic status by the Media Cultural Destruction-Transformation Machine, cannot hold a candle to the remarkable men who MADE Western Civilization what it was before envy and hate-inspired activists made it their business to destroy it.

  23. I issue a similar warning - don't eat a turd just because someone said it was cherry pie.

    If CPAC were "conservative" it could defend itself from being defined by its not-conservative contents.

    Why any conservatives would fall for the "CPAC is representative of all conservatism and its diktats are holy writ imprimatur" kinda misses the point of being conservative in the first place, I'd say.

    ReplyDelete
  24. And nobody asks Ducky to explain "He's a white supremacist who fits right in with CPAC."

    Let's see how a party who'd vote for Alan West or Cain in a heartbeat, and believes that Black Americans shouldn't be "entitle-mented" into voting for the Left, and that all Americans deserve the same opportunity to succeed has anything to do with white supremacy.
    I'd never heard of this guy....to read ANY of our conservative blogs and conclude we're racist is not only silly it's stupid.
    Apparently, his speech as on the consequences of institutional bilingualism in Canada...

    But, maybe DUcky's right, the CPAC racists thought "Let's invite a white supremacist to speak on the supremacy of whites in America (damn all the blacks at CPAC, they won't mind :-) and let's get a skin head NAZI at the next panel, too" Ya, sure, they did.

    ReplyDelete
  25. For example.. when Ann Coulter says "Mitt Romney is the most conservative candidate" are we supposed to applaud like circus seals, or start wondering if we're conservatives or if she's conservative?

  26. I'd never heard of this guy....

    Z, you've got a Brimelow quote on your sidebar at your blog.

    It's a nice quote, but it shouldn't be taken as an endorsement of this guy's body of work that you certainly wouldn't put on your sidebar.

    I don't either -- and will not.

    However, I think that we all know that the Left has successfully promoted white guilt. It is amazing how many have swallowed white guilt -- hook, line, and sinker.

    Yes.

    As far as I know, he didn't delve into "white nationalism."

  30. Frankly, I know little about Peter Brimelow.

    But his quotation on Z's sidebar is spot on:

  31. Beamish,
    I've been gobsmacked the last few years by some of the positions that Coulter has taken.

  32. Noting that Michelle Duggar showed up for CPAC would be enough to make me run like my hair is on fire. I am not familiar with CPAC. I hope they had a great time spinning their wheels.

    Regarding Ann Coulter, does anyone else think she writes like she has been drinking?! wink

  34. I llike Coulter has fallen prey to the notion that only a moderate Republican can win a National election. Even though I disagree with her on this point, I am not pushing her off the boat....

    I would lke to point out something especially for the leftards on this site.

    Notice the DIVERSITY OF THOUGHT on the right. visit Boortz and you will find slams on Santorum, Coulter endorsing MItt, Rush making nice comments about Santorum, etc etc etc

    On the left...slavish devotion to Obama as he proposes another massive debt building budget while planning the next family vacation to Hawaii, another TIm burton party at the White House from his pDA while he plays his 100th game of golf.....

  35. I got so sidetracked I forgot to discuss the thread....

    in a word--------DUH

    AOW sorry but I know no kind way to say this so I will just say it....

    You are moron if you think people did not vote for him soley because he was the First Black President.

    The turnout from the black community was one of the highest if not the highest in American history,,,,,do you think they voted for McCain?????

    At least this guy has the courage to admit his motivation.

    Pull up any of hundreds of You tube videos of on the street interviews the voters had no idea what they were voting for...

    And yes we did not vote for him were called racists...

    Well, you must be unaware of what I said time and again in 2008, once BHO was nominated: "People will vote for Obama to prove to themselves that they are not racists."

    ReplyDelete
  37. Blogginator,
    Besides, the point of this post was "reverse racism," the existence of which often goes ignored. Note the graphic at the end of the post. Isn't that graphic racist?

    Can you imagine if a candidate posted "White people for ________________." Sheesh.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Also, some who voted for Obama out of "white guilt" did so on a subconscious level, IMO.

    As we've been discussing in this thread, "white guilt" has been drummed into the American people for at least two generations.

    Back in 2008-2009, I recall MANY people saying, "It's about time that we had a black President."

    There is no post-racial America!

  39. Liberalism would impose The Tyranny of Minoritarianism on the entire world.

    Everyone with the slightest excuse to gripe or grieve always gets to the head of the line when liberals run the show.

    In the Liberal Vision of an Ideal World the Majority -- and above all the SUCCESSFUL -- are required to become virtual SLAVES and act as DOORMATS to the various VICTIMS and SPLINTER FACTIONS defined and promoted by Liberals.

    Liberalism would foment eternal DISUNITY and perpetual INTERNECINE WARFARE.

  40. Well this is further proof that black people are the new ultra racists in our society. I have a hard time liking a lot of black people today..not all, but a lot of them , just because of the attitude they display that is the same as Samuel Jackson's. I'm so tired of hearing how tough and bad their lives are and how the white man is solely to blame. Now they have the "ear" of Barack Hussein Obama and their sense of entitlement has been multipied 10 fold ! That no black people questioned Obummers past and nary a word was said about his affiliation with Rev Wright is proof that the majority of black people are VERY racist. ( i won't call em African Americans either...they are BLACK )

    ReplyDelete
  41. Can you imagine if a candidate posted "White people for ________________." Sheesh.

    The Alabama state Democratic Party logo's motto specifically said "White Supremacy" until 1966.

    When Theodore Roosevelt sought reelection in 1904, Democrats produced a button that showed their presidential nominee, Alton Parker, beside a white couple while Roosevelt posed with a white bride and black groom. The button read: "The Choice Is Yours."

    Seems racism and racialism from the Democratic Party is a tradition that goes WAY back.

  42. The smoke you guys blow up each others butts must be coming out of your ears by now. There is not doubt that CPAC is nothing but a celebration of hate, lies and racism by (mostly) white men.

  44. I had no idea who Brimelow was, but after reading about him at SPLC I feel unclean. There are racists on the left, like Rev Wright or Louis Frrakhan, but that's no excuse. And there is no reason to let Brimelow speak at CPAC.

  45. You read about Mr. Brimelow AT Southern Poverty Law center's website, Sandbox -- and you ACCEPTED their filthy, leftist distorted reportage at face value?

    God God Almighty! What a pity! What a shame! What a CRIME!

    You are one of the millions who have been sucked in and had your brains sucked out of your skull by leftist machinations.

    You must be either a Democrat, an out-and out Communist, or a fool.

  46. FT,
    Tell us what you really think. ;)

    In my view, the most power of the leftist machinations is the mainstream media.

    For an unspecified period of time, every time there is a gathering of conservatives, we're going to get tossed into our faces, "Brimelow was a CPAC. See what kind of people conservatives are?"

  47. FT,

    I think people can read Brimelow in his own words and determine that he's not exactly fond of non-white people.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Free Thinkie,
    I know that SPLC has a reputation itself. Yes, I consider the source. However, I trust that when they say that, for instance, Brimelow lets American Renaissance post on his cite that's because he does let the Neo-Nazi group post on his site and not because of some sort of misunderstanding or twisting of facts. It's not a case of somebody saying something at an internet discussion board that other people belonged to.

  49. It MUST be all right NOT to be "fond" of anyone or any group towards which you do not happen to feel "fondness."

    Questioning someone's MOTIVES, criticizing their MODUS OPERANDI, or merely expressing DISLIKE or DISAPPROVAL for certain modes of speech and styles of behavior is NOT the same thing as actively PERSECUTING anyone.

    And it's never been about "color," anyway. It's about culture, mores, folkways, style, speech patterns, values, preferences, etc.

    Political Correctness -- the official stifling and criminalization of expressions of honest feelings and critical analysis of any group that is NOT specifically White, Christian and Western -- is destroying our society.

    Driving deep-seated feelings of doubt fear, distrust, contempt, disapproval, etc. underground accomplishes nothing. It only creates a climate of institutionalized hypocrisy where negative emotions build up and fester beneath the surface. The potential in such a psychological climate is hideous.]

    It's better to TALK IT OUT than to let if suppurate.

    It could never be "okay" to kill people just because you don't like them. but it IS okay not to LIKE them. It HAS to be. Feelings can' be faked or forced. They must be dealt with. Denial can carry you just so far, and then BLAM!

    If you want to ban something, let's ban RACE BAITING. And all pubic demonstrations of AGGRESSIVE VICTIMHOOD.

    That would make a good start toward reclaiming the sanity our poor beleaguered society lost during the Sick-sties.
