No question about it, America is a hard left nation. Slashdot has a post on how Derbyshire got fired, and a particular response in the comments epitomizes why Obama is electorally strong (if you believe the polls) and why Derbyshire got fired (for breaking PC taboos basically):
I went to the Trayvon Martin March held in the city closest to us. As a white woman, I walked up to the City Hall thinking I’d be on the outside looking in. When I made my leave, I realized that one day, I would have to give my blond-haired, blue-eyed son The Talk–not because he’d be a target for discrimination, but he will no doubt witness acts of racism and discrimination. He will have friends of all races as our once White Bread Town, USA has become much more diverse. I want him to know that I got ‘The Talk’ from my racist grandmother, someone too stuck in the 30′s to understand where the world was going in present-time, and how that was wrong. We talk about the curse we give our kids with religious indoctrination, and that should apply to any views: political, racial, etc.
And if I may add, if given the choice to walk down a dark street with a group of black guys on the left, white boys on the right, I’m hanging a louie. Especially if the white guys are of the frat-boy variety. I’ve dealt with this first-hand. Walking around on the dangerous North Side of the city I marched in is seen as an incredible risk, but I’ve never been harassed in doing so. I go there all the time, just for a Puerto Rican bakery, ffs. Walking by a fraternity on a prestigious college campus? They were yards and yards away, and I walked away feeling dirty. From everything I’ve dealt with in life, ‘The Talk’ given to black men seems to include more lessons about respect than what the white ‘n rich boys get.
White upper class women hold this attitude strongly. Their experience as (presumably) a semi-hot chick who received unwanted White male sexual attention leads them to find White men disgusting, in general. Note the respondent is not even congruent with reality, in respect to her son. Poor Michael Brewer was set on fire by Black kids he knew in Deerfield Beach Florida.
A lot of this has to do with incentives. Men have an incentive to stand out. A man can only stand out by achieving, often at great risk, to make himself a better mate. A woman achieves nothing by standing out other than a lower mate; women’s better option is to fit in, thereby gaining a better mate. This explains why fashion is such a female phenomena and men celebrate (winning) rebels who did it their way.
Also, women who elicit cat-calls from White frat boys don’t understand the world very well. Unwanted sexual attention from men tends to flow into a general anti-White guy attitude; and real danger is dismissed while the unwanted sexual attention is made into a horror show. Most of that attitude is because of the unhealthy fantasy life of the West, instead of a rational approach that used to color most, though not all, of everyday decisions.
While the mostly White male nerd comments about how anti-Racist (i.e. anti-White guy) they are make depressing reading, Obama’s strength among voters seems to be that of picking up women. White professional women already loved him, so my guess is the contraception issue (picking a fight with the Catholic Church is always a winner with women) AND for now, the Trayvon Martin affair, pushed Obama upwards with blue collar White women. Obama as the Black Guy is more favored by White women than White men (and always has been). Anything that smacks of “the wrong sort of White guy” which the wildly inaccurate coverage of the Martin affair has portrayed, sends many White women with long-standing beefs against White men (basically men they consider “beneath them” hitting on them) into support for Obama.
Much if not most of the “anti-Racism” and explicit anti-White guy behavior is nothing more than White women who are enraged that White guys they consider beneath them “not knowing their place” and hitting on them. There is nothing a woman finds more enraging and contemptible. Of course a woman wants all men to find her sexy, but only the top, Alpha men to have confidence to make overtures. For a man less than 100% Alpha to make any attempts, innuendos and the like, is to insinuate that the two are on the same level. And most attractive women take great pains to be on a higher level. Its human nature. Wouldn’t you want to be “nature’s aristocrat?”
And that is why Derbyshire has a problem. Beta male White nerds will mindlessly condemn themselves, noting they “had it coming” if they get a beating by non-Whites, to seek endlessly the approval of women, that will come perfunctorily and in a dismissive manner. Meanwhile every woman who has ever been at one point in her life, semi-attractive, has a beef with White guys “beneath her” that hit on her.
That’s why the commenter feels “White Bread USA” is dismissive, to her its “unsexy White guys who hit on me” and “diverse” equals “those White guys get annihilated from Planet Earth.” That her son will get it too is no consequence. She either does not believe it will happen, or doesn’t care. If the latter, because his father is unsexy. Women forgive anything and everything in a sexy man, and nothing in one who is unsexy.
Of course, most people including White women with the above attitude live entirely different lives. They don’t live in Marion Berry’s district. They move heaven and earth to avoid say, sending their kids to DC schools, instead sending them to Sidwell Friends (where the Obama, Bush, and Clinton kids went) if they live in DC. Sandra Tsing Loh (she of “Kitchen Bitch loser males”) wrote about how she moved heaven and earth to send her daughters to the best (i.e. fewest Blacks and Hispanics) school in LA. Derbyshire’s main offense was to spell out just how White people live their lives in the Middle and Upper classes while maintaining the exact opposite views in speech and writing. Everyone knows frat boys, with a lot to lose, will do nothing but hoot and holler. Something soon forgotten. Shawn Tyson, age 16, murdered two White British Tourists in cold blood because they had no money when he robbed them. [He first made them strip naked, a common tactic to humiliate victims.]
Whitey Bulger was plenty dangerous. By all accounts over his career perhaps as many as fifty murders could be laid to his doorstep. But Bulger never whacked a person, unless he knew he’d come out from any murder charge, and he had something substantial to gain in recompense for the risk (of being charged and convicted for murder). Shawn Tyson simply shot to death two people for a fit of pique, never thinking that it could lead to a lengthy prison sentence. It is the chaotic, stupid, unpredictable violence of the Black underclass that people fear. Blacks and Whites together.
Derbyshire merely spoke openly of that fear. And for that, women like the above hold him in contempt. Fear, when it is rational, and based on concrete facts (instead of ghosts, witches, spells, and the like beloved of the Eat Pray Love crowd) is a health response to danger. Ignoring the danger is not healthy.
Derbyshire wondered if the White elites would continue to hold to their beliefs, go color-blind (Sailer’s Citizenism) or embrace open, old-school racism. Derb came down on the gut feeling of the latter. My guess is contrary, more to the former. Most White people fear the Black underclass, rationally. Fear is not hatred, nor is it bigotry. There is no appetite for the Klan, David Duke, or anything of that sort by comfortable, middle class or better White folks. Who in any event as Catholics, or Jews, or Mormons, or Atheists, or non-believers, would be the next target of those guys anyway. Not even in Mississippi and Alabama and Louisiana’s north country (heavily Evangelical Protestant) is Duke anything but a bad joke most Whites would wish go away. Bull Connor has been dead for forty years on, and no one cares or sheds a tear.
Rather, I think White elites will hold onto their beliefs. Because fundamentally it is based on the disdain of a female-centered society, built on female consumer consumption and media orientation, for beta White males. People will continue to act according to reality. Beta Male Bill in the cubicle next to you is no threat, other than getting to the donuts in the conference room first. Yes he’s unsexy. But that’s it. Meanwhile the Shawn Tyson’s are an irritation away from a double homicide. People will act on these beliefs while taking an elaborate charade to hide them.
And at the basis of it all is the hatred really of all those women who when they attracted male attention had “men beneath them” (beta males) hitting on them.
I owe Roissy an apology. I was skeptical of the ability of Game on a wide level to contribute significant change. IF this above thesis is correct (and my hunch is, yes, because I’ve seen this attitude of “Beta Male White guys are the worst thing on the planet” over and over again by women who were at one time hot and never got over a “mortal insult” of being hit on by beta males) … well then Game might be the only thing to bring honesty and rationality to discussion about race and the Black criminal underclass.
My own view of the policy recommendations towards the collapse of the Black lowerclass (it was not always like this) into today’s thugocracy is to copy the Victorians. They sent a LOT of criminals to jail. Putting about 55% or so of the Shawn Tyson types in jail, for thirty years or more (i.e. people convicted of violent crime) will significantly reduce the level of violence, and hence financial and other burdens the criminal underclass have on society. This is similar to what the Victorians did, along with revived Christianity and substitution of beer for gin, working men’s associations, and so on. The civil society of the Victorians it must be remembered was not built in a day, and came after utter dissolution, when it was common to find pre-teen prostitutes passed out in the best as well as worst part of London’s streets. [Yes, that's Jane Austen's era.]
Doing this sort of thing will require honesty, and suppressing the cries of racism and oppression from those seeing their young men shoved into jail for thirty years after conviction of murder, or heinous bodily injury. That in turn requires blowing up PC and the double-think of modern society. And that in turn requires making most frat boys not “icky beta males” but sexy guys who women like the above commeter on Slashdot find flattering, when they make overtures.
Had that Frat been filled with guys who acted like Russell Brand, I doubt she’d have the same attitude. She’d probably say Derb was right. I have no doubt she mostly lives that way. The trick is to make most Beta White males sexy. Yes, that’s pathetic. But Western Civilization may just turn on having most White women finding its worth defending, because its men are sexy.
