One time in his life, Joseph Stalin actually had a JOB! He only did it once, and he only worked for a short time, but that destroyed his virginity forever. The only place where virginity gets renewed is in the Islamic Paradise.
That was Stalin’s unique crime as a Champion of the Working Class.
Go through the whole list, Lenin, Trotsky, Malenkov, NONE of the Leaders of the Working Class ever held a JOB. None of them would have been known which end of a shovel to hold onto. Ted Kennedy is the Champion of the Working Class in America.
You show me somebody who praises the Working Class and I’ll show you somebody who has not had an extended talk with any working person in at least a decade. Jane Fonda talked about how great Communism was. She said that if we really knew what Communism was, we would get down on our knees and pray to God (WHO!?) for the dictatorship of the proletariat.
How often has Jane Fonda ever sat and LISTENED to a working stiff?
Yes, Stalin was our Great Ally in World War II. But his name is soiled forever in the eyes of True Idealists.
I sent the mantra to 12 people that I know personally. I got replies from exactly no one. Well damn, I don’t care. They have been told.
Comment by shari
Shari, most people think that twelve mail outs and no replies is bad. But the grassroots conservative movement, back when liberals absolutely controlled ALL media, as based on direct mail.
Here’s the way it works.
1) You rent a random three thousand names off of somebody’s much bigger list. That is enough to make a statistically valid test of that general list. If you were a conservative interested in prayers in schools, you might rent three thousand off of a list of a hundred thousand who have given money to support some other conservative religious cause.
2) If you get a TWO PERCENT RETURN on that list, it is a wild success. That means not one in twelve, but one in fifty. You almost always lose money on a test.
3) Now you decide to go ahead and rent the whole hundred thousand because you only lost about half the money you spent on the test. Why on earth would you do this, knowing it will cost you money?
Because when you mail the whole hundred thousand, you can expect two thousand people to respond. Actually two percent is ridiculously high, but this is for basics.
You have now found, by the only way then possible, two thousand people who are interested in YOUR cause and will give you money. You put those two thousand on your OWN “house list.” These are people you can appeal to from time to time and you will get a ten to twenty percent return from them.
4) You mail your house list to fund your organization, but you keep testing other lists.
When conservatism was a grass roots movement, this was about the only way groups survived. Now the neos have brought in the usual big Jewish money which has control and conservatism gives the finger to the grassroots.
But dealing in direct mail teaches you that people don’t respond to even small group mailings more than we do. I get a HUGE number of things that I read, but I respond to very, very few.
My local newspaper has a circulation of at least a hundred thousand. They print almost every letter to the editor that is not blatantly Politically Incorrect. People who read the editorial page send in maybe a half a dozen letters a day. Call that a response rate of one in ten thousand. Cut out the repeat offenders and it is down to on in twenty or thirty thousand.
But every day the newspaper keeps putting out editorials anyway.
You will note that when I get comments here I am a happy old bigot.
Now you know why.
For the first time in the history of The Blog People, I went to comments and there was NO Spam.
THREE comments arrive at my door. Can you imagine how you would feel if, one day, your mail consisted of nothing but PERSONAL replies?
What if we were like the leftists, and put the manra into EVERY note, every e-mail, and we didn’t give a damn if anyone was offended by it or not?
Some would decide you are nuts. Others would do the same thing.
WHICH group MATTERS?
Be inconsiderate. Be aggressive.
As Sarge says, DO it!!!
“May you live in INTERESTING times.”
So goes the Chinese curse. Nobody is interested in good times. When you read about them, they are boring. Have you noticed how fairy tales END with, “And they lived happily ever after.” No fairy tale describes this “happily ever after” period. It wouldn’t have been safe to do that.
You have just told fairy tale to children who enjoy the concept that Hansel and Gretel were about to be baked alive in an oven and who are now cheering the fact that a hungry old woman died in that agony instead. You then proceed to bore them to death with a description of the day-to-day uncluttered, uneventful life of uncomplicated happiness that Hansel and Gretel lived for the next fifty years, day by day.
I shudder to think that those kids would do to you. You had damned well better be sure there is no fire on the stove.
Compared to the fourteenth century outbreak of the bubonic plague, we live in BORING times.
No one will forgive me for pointing out, on balance, that Plague outbreak was a good thing. For the next two centuries, people in Europe lived MUCH better because of it. But those were BORING times.
You see, back then the population did not bounce back from a disaster. “A woman’s place is in the home” comes from the fact that a woman back then had to spend her entire life having and raising children just to keep the population stable. We have more fun blaming all this on a plot by men to suppress women, and the fact that it isn’t true never kept any documentary from having a guy with a British accent from pronouncing this Politically Correct point of view in the ad for Politically Correctness that comes at the end of every documentary.
Meanwhile, back on Planet Earth, the Plague created a population deficit that remade the economics of the time for two centuries. With so many whole villages wiped out, owners of land had to pay the remaining peasants unheard-of wages. The old sharecropper system completely collapsed all over Europe.
Yes, the Intellectuals tried to stop all this by Planning. They got together and set wages. But, as in the Soviet Empire, it just didn’t WORK. Back then they couldn’t even build a Berlin Wall to keep the workers from escaping.
All this brings us back to Global Warming. There are three positions on Global Warming and the Global Freeze it is supposed to lead to:
!) Liberalism: There will be Global Warming and Freezing so we must have Intellectuals take over the world and plan everything;
2) Respectable Conservatism: Yes, if this were the truth Liberal Intellectuals should rule the world, but it’s not true:
And mine, which nobody but The Blog People hear:
3) So what?
Here comes the Politically Correct narrator:
“Oh, God, Bob! Unlike me, you do not appreciate the HUMANITY here! I feel the pain that only a True Intellectual can appreciate!”
I will agree, because they bore me too much to do anything else, that only Intellectuals like Rousseau, who never saw a savage, Noble or not, in his life, can really appreciate Human Suffering more than I can, thought I have seen and SMELLED starvation.
As I say, all this Politically Correct hysteria bores me so much that I am happy to stipulate what this London-bound narrator with his Politically Correct ad at the end of every documentary says just to shut him up.
Yes, British Accent, only you and the Intellectuals understand Human Suffering.
I was watching a documentary about The Little Ice Age. They discussed the Black Plague and how it may have been so bad because people were weak and hungry from the change of weather. So far, so good.
They talked about how the Intellectuals of the age reacted to the Plague by burning witches. We have seen the same reaction when Soviet economic plans kept failing. Obviously this couldn’t be the fault of the Perfect Economic System run by Intellectuals, so it had to be “wreckers,” tens of millions of them, who were sabotaging the Perfect Economy.
Those who burned witches in earlier centuries were pikers. They killed a paltry few thousand witches. “Soviet Power” killed its witches by the tens of millions.
But every documentary must end with an ad for Political Correctness. This one ended by saying that if we have global warming it will be worse, because we have a lot more people on earth than they did in earlier centuries.
When somebody says something this dumb, I can laugh or I can cry. As Basso Profundo advises, I have spent too much of my life raging and moaning. So I’ll smile, though you might hear a bit of tooth-grinding in the background.
How in heaven’s name can anybody say that we are less able to handle a fifty or hundred-year crisis today than Communists or earlier witch-burners were? I quoted the Politically Correct advertisement from another documentary that said that half the population lived on the coast, and if sea level went up over the next half century, they would all drown.
There are two positions on global warming:
1) Liberals say that every white country must stop economic development to stop it;
2) Respectable conservatives say it ain’t gonna happen.
As an evil racist, let me add a third point of view:
3) So what?
If there is global warming occurs, with global freezing after it, we will turn up our air conditioners and then our heat, year by year.
Back to Peak Oil, which by now I may understand. Air conditioners and heat up will require more energy. So we will produce more energy. Just as people will move out of coastal areas as they go under water, we will produce the energy. We can do that now with nuclear power, but in fifty years that will be primitive.
Speaking of primitive, all the Political Correctness ads at the end of documentaries feature the fact that agriculture will be screwed up. Will we all starve? No, we will develop hydroponics. Like Peak Oil, we don’t develop hydroponics now because it is cheaper and easier to take the cheap stuff we can get from the soil, be it oil or wheat.
But are we all going to die because developing something else is expensive? I doubt it. If we spent the money we put out now protecting Israel’s interests in Iraq on atomic power plants and hydroponics, we would have more good and fuel than we do today.
A good example is what happened with rubber during World War II. You can still see movies from abut 1942 and 1943 when people were fighting over old tires. The Japanese had overrun the rubber-producing areas of Southeast Asia and, even in the other panics of the early World War II period; the total absence of rubber caused a panic.
That crisis had been forgotten by 1945. A synthetic rubber was produced. It was a very bad rubber at first, very brittle. But by 1950 NOBODY would have gone back to natural rubber.
It is too bad our documentary-makers couldn’t be in the 1942 period. They could have pissed and moaned about our artificial white society had depended on exploiting the poor Southeast Asians for rubber, and we were going to PAY THE PRICE. They would say that our only salvation was to ration rubber and turn Rubber Planning over to the Intellectuals.
Of course, having a Kyoto Conference on Rubber in 1942 might be a bit awkward, but there is always a place for Intellectuals to meet and Plan Things.
It might be helpful if someone followed-up with a reply.
Comment by cl
I see one reply so far. Is that one of the Blog People?
Come on, gang! Let’s not leave cl hanging the way we did Mark!
I don’t think I have ever posted one of your essays, but I post the mantra so much that I’m surprised someone has not whacked me over the head and said “DAMNIT WOMAN, STOP POSTING THAT THING. WE HAVE READ IT ENOUGH!”
I just don’t bother to report back on here with a “look at me, aren’t I so wonderful by doing something so simple as cutting and pasting words that aren’t even my own”. I mean, why brag about that? The answer to that seems to be that it makes you feel better, but I’m telling you, it feels awfully unnatural.
Papillon, you made a common mistake:
You were so concerned about the social lesson you have been taught about not being a braggart that you completely forgot the fact that Ole Bob may NEED to hear what you just wrote.
It helped a lot.
Please see if you can help Mark and cl out.
I don’t repeat what mderpelding says out here a lot. What mderpelding says always has three vital elements:
1) A beginning;
2) A middle;
3) An end.
What you see is what you get. You may think it’s good or ridiculous, but it’s all right there.
I like that.
My brother told me he had caught up with the Blog but he said apologetically, “I didn’t read the comments.” That was satisfying to me because he had read the Blog enough to realize that I KEEP saying that you haven’t read it if you haven’t read the comments.
I know the comments are being read because commenters are talking to each other. And the commenters are answering each other in the terms of THIS BLOG. I will come down hard on anybody who wanders from the point.
Mderpelding brought up a point I need to expand on:
Have you ever questioned WHY global warming HAS to be the fault of whites?
Have you ever questioned WHY third world poverty HAS to be the fault of whites?
Have you ever questioned WHY the third world must be integrated with us and ONLY us?
Us whites, that is.
In our world, we usually only accept responsibility for that which we can CONTROL.
Do you see where the real “white supremacists” are?
Do You See?
Who insists that global warming IS the fault of the west?
Who insists that third world poverty IS the fault of the west? (imperialism)
Who insists white countries and ONLY white countries benefit from “Diversity”?
White Supremacists. Of course.
Ironic, ain’t it?
Comment by mderpelding
During the nineteenth century whites found ways to end starvation for the first time in human history. We ended diseases that had always been considered a part of life.
No white man ever did anything bad that every other race had not done before. Everybody who had the people had always enslaved others. While we were developing our guilt complex about blacks in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, blacks in Africa were taking land from the Hottentots and committing genocide against them. That’s what strong people ALWAYS did to weak people.
There was only ONE unique characteristic of whites. They found ways to make life BETTER without enslaving others. They found ways to gain a new level of wealth without whipping it out of the hides of conquered peoples.
No one had EVER done that before.
So what was our reaction?
We told each other that we were rich but other people were poor. By “poor” we meant they were in the same miserable condition they had always been in. We whites were HUNGRY for guilt. We wanted to feel BAD about anything we had done that was good.
A commenter mentioned Weltanschauung to me, “world view. There are German words like Gestalt that have been adopted into general discussion. Schadenfreude, the joy a lowly person feels at something awful that happens to more fortunate people, is a German word that is better than some English translation.
That word is Schuldhunger, “a Hunger for Guilt.” It is the disease of Germany today. It is the essence of “ianity” as opposed to Christ. It is the basis of genocide against whites:
“Liberals and respectable conservatives say there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.”
“The Netherlands and Belgium are more crowded than Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.”
“Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.”
“What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?”
“How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem? I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?”
“And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?”
“But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.”
They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.
“Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.”
But I want to introduce a German word that nobody needs today more than Germans do.
If you are a REAL Man, the Greatest Generation tells us, you don’t NEED anybody. But I told Mark that I needed him, our Sarge. Bob’s a wimp, gang.
I’m PROUD of it. No matter how pissed off Mark gets, and God knows I understand how pissed off he is, I can appeal to him by the unfair tactic of saying ***I*** need him.
However he may criticize me, Mark knows WHO I am, and Ole Bob takes pride in that.
As for being a wimp in the eyes of the group that calls itself The Greatest Generation, Basso Profundo says, “you deballed the World War II Generation again …”
Hey, Profundo, you can’t deball a hen.
It is hard for others to understand how completely I identify with Mark. Mark is out there hitting with the Mantra. He asked REPEATEDLY for some of us to join him.
The reply was, “But I am doing something else.” How many times has every sergeant heard that line?
You may BE doing something else. My ideas will spread. But you also owe MARK some backing, some ACTION.
Mark is pissing you off. He is sarging.
Show me a sergeant who pisses no one off, who is beloved. I’ll show you a noncom who needs to be retired or transferred.
Mark is doing what I cannot do. I need to keep our little force in being. If I were to bitch and moan endlessly about how people aren’t pitching in, I would lose my audience.
So I’ve got Mark, who sergeants. He doesn’t give a flying horsehockey whether he is hated or not. In fact, if he started being liked, he might feel very uncomfortable.
Mark is sergeanting.
Understand where I am coming from. To me, follow-up is everything. Mark is out there in the trenches and HE says he is alone. Mark told us again and again where we could meet him and back him up.
I have faith in spreading ideas. I believe that my writing them down here is critical. I believe Alan when he says he is pushing these ideas in his own way.
But I have also been out there alone the way Mark is. Mark says, “Here we have these marvelous weapons. I am out here and no one else is.”
Just saying, “Well, have faith that I am doing just as much on other fronts” is not enough. If you want to be part of this war, and a comrade like Mark says you are MIA, you should think about HOW you are being MIA.
Thanks, Mark. I can’t sergeant like you do. You are the only one out there and that takes a courage I appreciate. Just keep coming here sergeanting. Tell is EXACTLY where we should be.
Do what you are doing, but hit us regularly with your demand that we get out there like you are.
If you think Mark pisses you off you would never want to meet the younger Bob Whitaker. Mark is what I used to be, though, like all old men, I think I was even meaner.
Sic ‘em, Sarge!
P.S. Something just occurred to me.
I was considering whether I should put the piece above, “Schuldhunger,” on Stormfront.
But then I thought about THIS piece. Why doesn’t somebody ELSE copy and paste that onto Stormfront? If what I say is so good, so praiseworthy, why do ***I***, and I alone, have to put it on SF? Remember that Mark is dealing with newsgroups out there, but we ALL know about SF. If everybody is doing things, why is the most obvious forum of all empty of the best blog stuff unless I put it in?
Pain put one of my pieces of SF once, but I already had. So did that make us look BAD?
No way! Nothing would be better than for Stormfront readers to say, “Oh, my God, Whitaker’s fans are putting his stuff in here AGAIN!”
Granted it wouldn’t make YOU look great. But that isn’t the point, is it? It would make it look like a group thinks what Whitaker says is critical stuff.
I don’t think that, outside of Pain, I have ever seen one of you put my stuff into SF.
That makes me a bit doubtful that everybody is doing “something else.”
I am asking for copy and paste, not a frigging moon landing program.
If for no other reason, do it to make Bob feel better.
Ten of them this time, and great ones!
WOL was just me talking, and the blog started that way. But unlike Mommy Professor, and unlike most old men, Bob has been evolving steadily. We went into seminar mode. Now most of my entries are titled with the name of the commenter who got me going.
Hopefully you think this shows humility on my part. Actually it shows PRIDE on my part. My BUSINESS, the BUSINESS I got paid for, is knowing people. I AM a people, gang! I know very well the rut that a person my age gets into. The old guy becomes the Authority: “Children should be seen, not heard,” and every year the old guy’s idea of the age at which one ceases to be a child goes up.
Not Ole Bob. I have completely lost track of the ages of commenters.
I got a kick out of Basso Profundo’s reply to my saying I had stomped on him, which amounted to “You stomped WHO, Whitaker?”
Pain, with whom I have spoken a few times so I know he was born when I was middle aged, jumped on me saying that the Soviet Empire was the greatest tyranny ever known. Good point, Pain, but I did think about that before I wrote it. The one that you are referring to is not KNOWN. If it were, much of OUR job would already be DONE. The Soviet Empire was a part of it, and I am still proud of having done some surgery to cut THAT piece of its anatomy off.
I understand Mark’s frustration. He has been boycotting me, and I don’t like it at all, which is one reason he is doing it. Mark, I was in the same mood many, many times. If I could get people out there FIGHTING, we could rip the antis to pieces. But this is all I HAVE, Mark, this is more energy than the doctor tells me I should be expending. Give me a BREAK, man!
I NEED Sarge and I’m not too proud to say so.
The Greatest Generation “models” contributed little. Their “corporate form” had to be undone in the 1980s to get improvement in America’s productivity.
The Greatest Generation was one of the most unproductive generations in history, the proof being the great inflations of their working lives (1940s through early 1980s), inflation representing nothing more than a shortage of consumer goods, the opposite of what the MSM tell us.
The Greatest Generation was good at getting others to pay their bills. That’s over, and that fact that we are stuck with their bills is the biggest economic problem we have.
Comment by Dave —
Yes, we are STILL paying for WWII and those benefits. I tried to introduce this into the economics literature, and you can imagine the reaction I got.
Back in the 1960s I added up the costs of the DEBT from World War II, just the war, not the veterans’ benefits still being paid. The war had been paid largely by debt. But that debt had been racked up over twenty years before. The INTEREST on the debt had more than doubled it.
Ever since 1945, the Federal Government had routinely run a deficit. But if you subtracted the interest on the debt from World War II from that deficit, outgoes and income were equal. In other words, our ENTIRE debt came from WWII. It has not been paid.
Now WWII and its debt are in their SEVENTH decade. Would you care to do a little arithmetic and figure what the geometric progression has made it NOW? PLUS the debt we ran up paying those benefits to twelve million “vets.”
Giving a third of the world’s population to Stalin and Mao was an expensive proposition.
Besides which, since we had destroyed the Anti-Cominterm Axis — the word before “Axis” has not been pronounced in many, many years — we spent most of the Federal budget defending against a threat Germany and Japan were no longer there to resist.
I tried to say that with my Peak Oil posts, that the timing for the death strike against white liberalism is very near, but you chewed my head off then beat me with the mantra. Even white liberals (and that is the only kind) realize that what they advocated in regards to racial equality is a failure, and so most of them are switching over to Global Warming and energy depletion as their choice of “dramatics.” If it weren’t for the propaganda efforts of the “respectables” and their quest for empire the whole charade would collapse, and it will once our economy seeks its natural level and the cult’s lies are no longer profitable to the average lumpen.
Comment by Simmons
A little while back Simmons told me to take a break, “We’ll take it from here.”
So I took break, a long one for a workaholic like me, and waited for Simmons to get in here. He disappeared, unless this is my attention deficit talking. Now here he is back, thank God, but the old bastard Bob has another bitch to make.
I want Simmons to stop mentioning it and giving us web sites and TELL is what EXACTLY his “Peak Oil” idea is.
Yes, Prof Bob pooh-poohed it once, but this is NOT Mommy Professor territory.
Basso Profundo just got slammed — again — but he’ll be back and he enjoys it. I have slammed about everybody here and nobody minds slamming me when they think I need it.
Try THAT on Mommy Professor’s turf!
I approve your comments. I decide who is an old timer here, and I think you should be COMPLIMENTED when you get in here as a regular grad in our seminar. This puts an obligation on you. I am not interested in what some website says. I am interested in what YOU have to bring to US.
Even SHARI, whom I thumped on for a year about her humility, has stood up and started walking tall. She now understands that if you get in here the way she has, it offends ME if you act like you are not proud of it.
Dammit, Simmons, I want you to sit down and WRITE what Peak Oil IS, and put it in OUR context. No one outside our group can DO that, so referring to a web site won’t do it.
The Artist Formerly Known As Nobody replies:
Alan makes a much stronger point than many may realize.
For instance, I broke with Conservatism when I realized that, for SOME reason, the Godless Communists of the USSR were always facing massive crop failures, and yet, somehow, we kept bailing them out. At THAT point, I realized that Conservatism, in practice, was more of a CON game, than CONservatism.
I suspect that, at the end of the day, it all comes down to Peter Shank’s elegant formulation of FAMILY, RACE and CULTURE – especially RACE, which I see as the Living Bridge between Family and Culture.
I also realize that we are degenerating into the Aristocratic Republic we grew from; twelve years of Bush, eight years of Clinton, eight years of Bush – and Hilary guaranteed to run in ‘08. Further, it looks like The Game was rigged all along – BOB DOLE for President?
Thirty years ago, Robert Townsend, writing in “Up The Organization,” noted that the corporate form ws useful; even if the people who owned them were using them solely to keep the Game going, it was useful. Those corporate Forms were derived from the self-proclaimed “Greatest Generation’s” experience, and models of organizational behavior. You respected the uniform of a superior officer, and ignored the character of the man in it.
Those were the matters of Form that led us to where we are today.
We have been led down the path of folowing the matters of Form without question, and pretty much, ignoring the matters of Substance – Family, RACE and Culture – to our peril.
Our hereditary RACIAL enemies, the Satanic demons known as JEWS, have never lost their clear focus on just these issues; to them, RACE above all, and CULTURE exists solely to serve the RACE.
We have been like blind men playing baseball, with no idea what the game board looks like, or what the rules REALLY are, with the referee working hand-in-glove with our RACIAL enemies.
It’s really very simple – everything outside of Family, RACE and Culture – especially RACE – is really something of a sideshow, designed to keep the Drones amused, and busy, while remaining in their place, as cattle before Gods.
We have always been the ones who compromised, who HAD to compromise, as we accepted our RACIAL enemy’s terms and definition, in a social environment, a Culture, where we were encouraged to “go along to get along.”
Either we recognize that this is a life or death battle, and our children, our Posterity, and the world they will inhabit, are the stakes here, or we are doomed to always playing the Enemy’s gsmer, at the Enemy’s table, on the Enemy’s terms – and the Enemy gets to referee.
For the FIRST time, we have reduced the terms to what truly matters, and understand them.
Now, we must apply the same level of skilled ruthlessness to them, that they apply to us.
Above all, we must develop that skill, first and foremost, within our selves, by being focused and disciplined, and never allowing ourselves to forget the REAL issues at stake in every decision we make, no matter how small or trivial it may seem.
And what ARE those issues?
Family, RACE and Culture – simple as that.
Just keep plugging everybody. Total victory is just around the corner. A week. A month. Maybe a year at the outside. Just keep plugging. Surely you can see the signs of victory all around you. Your check is in the mail.
I stood on a bridge in Moscow and gave the finger to the most powerful despotism the world has ever known because I had been instrumental in destroying it.
I was appointed to a critical job by a president I was instrumental in electing.
During all the years I was doing these things, the Basso Profundos kept losing, and kept telling me I would lose.
I wonder if you see any connection?
Liberal was in fashion when civil rights was pushed along with busing, equality and immigration reform. Once these negative effects of this came forth then the heat was on the “Liberals”. This one label carried the stigma of all that went wrong with leftist idealism mentioned above. The “Liberals” became progressives or moderates etc, they figured nobody would notice. The proper conservative was used to save the cultural deviants, if Bob Dole was seen along side Ted Kennedy then he must not be all that bad so it goes. Every time these SOB’s are on the ropes it’s somebody on the other side that saves the “Liberals”, why not, the propers would have to behave like all the others who are never allowed on TV.
Comment by Alan
Anti-racists today are in EXACTLY the position liberals were in in the period you talk abut, when they got discredited. “There is no room for racism in American society” is phrase you hear less of today. People are EXPERIENCING what it means. It means suppression of all opposition, which is what liberalism came to mean in the 60s.
It took quite a while for people to even begin to attack the holy word “liberal.” It had been a mantra for a full generation. But it critically important that I now find that EVERYBODY laughs when I say “anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.” People would have seamed bloody murder if I had said that before 1980. I am attacking what WAS a Holy Mantra. Now it is laughing stock.
The trick is knowing WHEN that turning-point has come.
I did a piece recently on white’s right to discriminate. The brilliance of this argument IS NOT THE ARGUMENT. I will get people chiming in and saying I am RIGHT. But as I keep complaining, that precisely misses the point. We were RIGHT when we said the white man made life worth living in the 1920s. It does not matter that I’M RIGHT.
What MATTERS if the TIMING.
I have had to wait all these years for the antis to go too far. Now THEY are demanding reparations. Now THEY are saying whole races deserve things. Now the whole Ex Oriente Lux crap, where we all owed everything to Moses and Pharaohs, is collapsing. NOW we can attack and state flatly what WE have a right to.
War or politics, which is the same thing, is a matter of TIMING. When I was saying that integration was aimed at genocide in the 1950s, I was RIGHT, but Norman Rockwell was portraying people like me as an attack on little black girls being protected by troops as they entered white schools surrounded by Evil Rednecks. Now it is OBVIOUS genocide.
NOW is the TIME.
But every time I mention the WWII generation and the example of moral cowards just like them in the Catholic hierarchy who played the Godfather to priest who raped little boys, every reply I get is abut what people are used to talking about: homosexuality in the priesthood. That not only has nothing to do with my point, it TRIVIALIZES what I am telling you.
Which is why Mark is so pissed, thought he has a lot to learn from me, too. The simple fact was that in 1968 we cold have DESTRYED liberalism. Humphrey was down to 29% in the polls, and his working-class anti-liberals and Republicans anti-liberals were ready to stomp them into the dust. Mark, can you imagine that I spent TWELVE YEARS in rug-chewing fury while these dolts slowly, slowly got together against the common enemy?
First the enemy does what Alan said. His REAL motives become so clear nobody can miss them. But that is not enough. THEN the whole establishment which has been opposing them has to slowly, glacially, begin to realize it is time for ATTACK. All the subtlety and survival tactics they used before are out of date. It takes a LONG time to get this across.
But I have been this way before.
First the enemy makes his motives so clear nobody can miss them any more. THEN those who have led the moderate response, who are the spokesmen of the opposition, have to be replaced. Reagan lost the nomination fight in 1976.
I am STILL trying to get across to BLOGGERS what the FIRST step is. I am hitting on the second with “respectable conservatives.”
This really bothers me for a very good reason. If you NEVER get over the idea that my exposure of moral cowardice dealing with boy rapes in the Catholic Church and its relevance to the Greatest Generation — and THAT was a wild overstepping that generation gave us to hit them with – how am I EVER going to want you against Step Three?
All those clever people who kept control of the anti-liberals didn’t just get mad and go home, the way Mark sounds like he is doing. They invented Neoconservatism. Now the neoconservatives have us in Iraq in EXACTLY the same way that EXACTLY the same kind of people who got us into Vietnam.
I have made that point several times, but all I get is responses about how Jewish they are and other standard stuff.
Please LISTEN to me! This war will be won. I saw the same war before. But paleoconservatives won the war and lost the peace.
REPEAT: We won the war but we can lose the peace and right back where we were AGAIN. And conservatives did it by going back to the same old crap like a bitch to her vomit.
If you want to WIN, and STAY won, get off the old crap and GET MY POINTS!
