Steve Sailer has proposed for the GOP the “Sailer Strategy” of maximizing White votes and not worrying or courting Black or Hispanic votes, on the theory that Whites are still the largest ethnic/racial group, and that furthermore Democrats as the defacto anti-White party will always outbid the GOP. Sailer is absolutely correct on these facts. But the problem with the Sailer Strategy is that it doesn’t work. Because Whites are divided. Deeply and fundamentally on the most important (and undiscussed) issues of the day. Thus America has lurched to an inevitable civil war, a hot one, like Syria, eventually (though it’s probably twenty years off now). While conservatives assail Romney and establishment Republicans for “not fighting.” Of course they’re not fighting, they want to win — and a deeply divided White electorate punishes those candidates who seek to fight; and doubly so against any Black candidate. For the magic elixir of Democrats is a Black candidate. A Liberal Black man is simply unassailable. Not just because the media says so, and slavishly follows someone like Barack Obama around hoping to lick his boots. No. It is because a very large segment of White voters feels that way. And any attack simply turns them off.
We are talking about people like this. White women. A non-trivial amount of whom worship Barack Obama (because he’s Black) as if he is the second coming of Jesus, Chocolate Edition, 100% less Vanilla.
Obama took single White women in 2008, on the order of 70%, about the same as his margin among Jewish voters, but unlike Jews (who are about 4% of the population and simply don’t matter in voting much anywhere — thus the general and inevitable drift to anti-Israeli policies because Jewish votes don’t matter), single White women exist in sizable numbers. Single White Women out-number married White Women by a considerable margin. Late marriage, with its inevitable high divorce rates, pretty much guarantee that. A woman married to her second, third, or fourth husband is not likely to consider him much of anything but a companion anyway, and thus essentially one step above a servant, basically disposable.
The famous Gender Gap exists for a reason. White women, particularly single ones but even married ones, have very different interests and desires than White men.
Take for example, the picture at the top of the post, depicting a White woman begging forgiveness of a Black man for racial sins committed by Whites against Blacks, in Memphis TN to honor Martin Luther King Jr. [Hat Tip John Derbyshire, Takimag, "White People Are Pussies"]
Now, a reasonable man might ask, what does the woman gain, and what does she risk, by being on her knees? Does she risk being thought less of a woman? No. Does she gain scorn, isolation, and disgust among her fellow White women? No, quite the reverse, she gains their admiration and respect, for bowing down to a random Black man and asking forgiveness. Submission and groveling gains her a part in the PC hierarchy, makes the woman a part of the anti-White guy coalition, and indeed stimulates that part of the hind-brain that among women loves submission. See Fifty Shades of Bondage, series 1-3, more than twenty weeks on the NYT Best-seller lists.
Now what does a WHITE MAN risk, and gain, by groveling and submitting. What he might gain, is well, nothing. He being White won’t get any PC goodies. Part of the anti-White guy coalition? He’s White and a guy, he’ll get nothing. He might keep a few things if he’s well connected and powerful, but in that case he would not be groveling. What he would get, guaranteed, is sexual extinction. Its why bad guys in real life and in movies seek to make MEN kneel. To grovel. It is a dominance play, sure and simple that wipes out the man who is kneeling on a reproductive basis. The man loses any sexual appeal, and is seen quite literally as a eunuch. This is why men will very often fight, to the obvious death, because they understand that surrendering will merely make them eunuchs. Often in history, quite literally.
No man kneeling so would gain respect from his fellow men, Black or White. They’d both think he was gay, or totally lacking in courage, self-worth, and decency, and thus worthy of being treated as nothing more than a disposable object. Yes it is true that kneeling, briefly, under chivalry was part of elaborate rituals, but that entailed (very brief and choreographed so as to not engender male resentment and fury) symbolic submission to a lord to achieve honors and recognition as part of the nobility. Needless to say, that sort of thing is not what is happening in the picture of the White woman kneeling before the Black man, begging forgiveness (for things that happened quite likely, long before she was born).
It is an article of faith among conservatives that Republican candidates just “don’t want to win” and have somehow suffered and endured the rigors of the campaign just to be good losers to Democrats. But in fact, candidates who have embraced the Sailer Strategy, have gone nowhere. If it was a path to victory, President Tancredo would be dealing with Libya as we speak. Its a failure, because large portions of White voters, principally White women, and secondarily White coastal elite men and those who aspire to be elite men, support Democratic policies, culture, and social agendas in particular making America White-minority, whole-heartedly.
Bob Dole, in an obvious losing effort, and mocked by the media completely, railed against Clinton every chance he got. He certainly attacked, on Clinton’s moral character (“Where’s the outrage?”) and foreign policy failings, and domestic weakness. Clinton of course, was White. The same can be said about George Herbert Walker Bush, against Michael Dukakis. Or George W. Bush, against both Al Gore and John Kerry, “reporting for duty.” You don’t get more establishment and Republican than both Bushes, and Bob Dole. Well of course, their opponents were White men.
White men can be attacked, any time. Black men, particularly liberal ones, can’t. Because White women won’t stand for it. Simple as that.
There is no magic bullet to be unleashed, by attacking Barack Obama. No doubt both Mitt Romney and John “Maverick” McCain, have extensive internal polling showing that attacking Barack Obama personally will turn off legions of White women. Because for a variety of reasons, White women … HATE HATE HATE White men, generally, and adore Black men. [Not the least of which is few White women have to deal with the average Black man on a daily basis, while the daily flaws of White men are as near as the cube next to them or the pillow next to them.] This is reinforced on a daily basis for the last twenty years, with “idiot White guy” commercials in which stupid White guys are rescued from their own stupidity by patronizing White women and Black men.
Then of course, there is differences in interests. White women (as shown by anything they read or watch) want an aristocratic, hereditary, semi-feudal society based on personal interaction, attractiveness, and charisma. Not nerdy abstraction leading to science-babble stuff about reversing the polarity of the shields and modulating the anti-matter field, or something. White women want bondage fantasies, hunky gay vampires, kings and queens and princesses, while White men want the scientific techno-nerd-cracy of Star Trek. Its as simple as the cross-bow of the Hunger Games versus the phaser of Captain Kirk.
This is because White men are threatening. Very threatening. Since the average White guy has been unleashed, he’s destroyed system after system, by making them obsolete. White guys (taking gunpowder invented by the Chinese but used only for fireworks or very primitive and fairly useless guns) destroyed the feudal empires of Europe. Chivalry was killed, dead, by masses of loosely trained peasants using muskets and pikes. The Printing Press destroyed the Catholic Church and the medieval world, aided by the gunpowder that replaced the castle and romantic curtain walls with the modern, star-fort. The Steam engine made slave empires from the antebellum South to Ottoman and Russian Empires, obsolete. The work of a thousand slaves could be done faster, cheaper, and BETTER by a steam engine. That never needed food or clothing, and could run constantly.
Nerdy White guys invented and perfected the telegram, the telephone, the radio, the television, and the internet, all of which in turn destroyed old cultures, as memorably captured by Barack Obama in “Dreams from My Father: A STORY OF RACE AND INHERITANCE” … where Obama talks about how the certainties of the peasant way of life in Indonesia had a certain innate dignity and tradition lacking in the hustle and bustle of modern America, and in his mind outweighed the poverty and degradation found there.
This is an attitude widely shared among certain Whites (particularly White Women), and most of the Third World, and nearly all of the non-White population of America.
If you are a nerdy White guy, you WANT the rules to be thrown out, old empires destroyed, new ones created. You want change, social churning (but not violence, nerdy White guys do poorly among violence by and large), new ways of doing things. By and large, the story of European and American history has been nerdy White guys unleashed, creating new technology that changes nearly everything: mobile radios and the internal combustion engine made WWII vastly different from the largely foot-infantry, horse-drawn artillery affairs of the past War that relied on couriers for commands to be passed around. The West by and large has been willing to live with the chaos nerdy White guys create, because the advantage was so large. Those that industrialized and pushed industrialization further, won mostly. Those that preferred the certainty of the old way of life, innate dignity and all, were losers. And paid the loser’s price in things.
But the change has a price. It means buggy whip manufacturers go out of business, as do custom coach makers. Or Wheel-wrights. Or Blacksmiths. It means the vast reduction in power and influence of courtesans, and mistresses, and wives, of powerful men, because today’s powerful men can be an also-ran in ten year’s time, so rapid can be the social and thus commercial and status-change. Feminine culture always gravitates towards a semi-hereditary aristocracy, because that is where women win: by being maids, washerwomen, and hair-dressers if ugly, and mistresses, concubines, and wives if pretty, for powerful men and their ladies. Women don’t dream of, don’t write, and don’t read, gripping tales of technological races for supremacy through engineering and team building and innate understanding of math and science. There’s not a single female romance novel featuring the battle between two profoundly unsexy men, Edison and Westinghouse, over the standard for electrical current: alternating or direct.
Black men and women know they have as much chance in a world run by nerdy White guys, with a premium on abstract, high IQ, math and science thinking and doing, as the average White guy has of making the NBA or NFL lineup. The same is true for most Hispanics. And White women.
Much of the Democratic policies are aimed at simply stopping White guys. From changing the world any more. Women and the rest WANT IT TO STOP. Largely they’ve succeeded. Underlying the HATE HATE HATE of unsexy White guy nerds (and no one does that better than White guys) is the change they bring, that make women generally losers. Suppose America transitions from a nation of Hollywood, Academia, Government, NGOs, and low-level service to manufacturing and energy extraction? How will that help women? Will they play a leading part in it, as they do Hollywood (particularly TV which is almost exclusively female in audience composition)? Or will they simply stand around and watch like White guys at an NBA game?
The problem with the Sailer Strategy is that it presupposes that most Whites have the same interests that if properly identified would lead to bloc voting the way Blacks (98% Democrat, year in and out) or Latinos (75% Democrat, year in and out) vote. That’s wrong.
Because White women don’t see it that way. They WANT and NEED a non-White majority America. No not all of them. But most single White women, and a non-trivial portion of married White women. Only a non-White majority America can slow the change down, to where they can extract as junior portions of the anti-White guy coalition the maximum amount of resources. Otherwise, in a White majority run nation, they’re going to be standing around watching White guy nerds create new technology that obsoletes everything, and have no role to play in a world filled with Star Trek nerds instead of Kanye West. Most White women would prefer Kanye West, thank you very much, to Star Trek nerds.
This is why, anyone trying the Sailer Strategy flames out in a Kamikaze run. Its why Tom Tancredo is disgraced, out of politics. For his ideas not his personal life or actions. Its why John Derbyshire was fired from National Review. Its why Britain, France, and the US have submitted so completely and totally to Muslims, why Madonna, blurting the truth, thinks its fabulous we have a Black Muslim in the White House. ONLY Islam, in conjunction with massive non-White immigration, which is VERY popular among White women, can slow down the White nerds. And stop them from changing everything again. Hell for women is White nerds, not just the complete sexlessness, as they see it, but the world they create. At least the Road Warrior, or Hunger Games has a very traditional, male-dominant society filled with brutal men, with rules they understand. Not abstract technology that they can NEVER understand.
And that’s why Romney is not attacking Obama. Obama is Black, simple as that. He’s untouchable personally. White women won’t stand for it. Anyone familiar with women understands why: there are rules for Alpha males (be sexy, all and everything is always forgiven) and those for beta males (their existence is an affront to womenkind everywhere). Romney’s play, and he does have one, is to argue that its just a matter of pocketbook economics, Obama can still be their boyfriend but can’t run the country anymore. Because they can’t afford it. This will pull in enough White women, he hopes, along with their beta male orbiters who take their cues, wrongly, from them, to push him over, 51%, to victory. That was McCain’s style as well.
Yes the media attacks any Romney statement, anything he does, but that was a given. Romney well understood that. He’s a numbers guy, for better or worse. He knows because of beta male orbiting, and White Knighting, and self-interest among the coastal elites, the cap he can get among White guys is about 65-70%. No higher, at least thirty percent or more among White guys will vote Obama. Among White women, he hopes to pull about 40% or more, limit Obama to no more than 60% of that vote. To do that, he can’t be attacking their dream Boyfriend who will crush those nerdy White guys they hate.
Is this doable? Perhaps this election. A viable long-term strategy? Probably not. Which means inevitably the nerdy White guys are going to look around. The first group they’ll copy in a struggle for power and arranging society back to their liking, is the gays. At no more than 4% of the population, they got Gay Marriage as the law of the land. Repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t tell. By stuff like punishing Mormons who donated to Prop 8 in California. Using donation records to out them and get them fired, organizing boycotts of businesses that employed them, and the like. That’s right up to the limits of the law on violence, but it worked. Particularly since the achilles heel of women is violence. Or domination. Any group that threatens and dominates, quickly finds women on their side. Code Pink actively supports the Taliban, which makes perfect sense once you know that Feminists just seek the most dominating, old-school, traditional men possible while “outlawing” beta male nerdiness. This is why feminists parading around with plastic pink vagina costumes HATE HATE HATE nerdy White guys operating drones killing Taliban, and love love love said Taliban lopping off girls heads for learning to read. Its all about dominance. Something sooner or later the most beta male white knight orbiter will learn.
And thus the nerdy White guys will gravitate towards first the Gay model of punishing people and screwing people over, and then the Taliban/AQ model of killing people to make their point. The killing of Rushdie’s translators, and the murder of Theo Van Gogh and Pym Fortuyn, made Europeans (particularly the socialists dominated by women) capitulate as fast as they could. Almost aroused by the cruelty and dominance, Europeans instituted defacto Sharia law very quickly. After 9/11, George W. Bush first … visited a mosque. To demonstrate his submission. After that, America elected a Black Muslim President, who is apologizing for ticking off Muslims and instituting slow-motion Sharia here. With the enthusiastic support of feminists and most women, I might add. Who have always HATE HATE HATED free speech as it benefits nerdy White guys not them, for the most part.
Already on the male Left, the habit of stealing and not paying for movies and tv shows has become ingrained. The Nerdocracy endorses the Pirate Party, in Europe, which amounts to the proposition that stealing stuff should be legal, as long as it amounts to movies and songs and tv shows. The Wikileaks, Anonymous, and Lulzsec have been of course, left wing agitprop groups, but there is no reason at all to suggest that this will be limited to the Left alone. Lunatics like James Holmes, Cho Seung Hui, and Jared Lee Loughner had no real ideological agenda save crazy, and the desire to kill someone. A more rational, angry, and pissed off White guy with technical expertise could see the message inherent in capitulation to Muslims and Gays: “Dominate US PLEASE!” and do so. A “conspiracy of one” is almost impossible to catch. I have no doubt that the US has built something along the lines of the “machine” in “Person of Interest” on CBS, and a massive sweep of phone conversations, travels, emails, purchases, and the like by computer has stopped a great deal of terrorist attacks. But a man who keeps his own counsel, who covers his tracks (attacking say the power grid, or nuclear plants, or an ordinary power plant, or the NYC subway system, or any complex system that millions depend upon) is not only nearly impossible to stop, if he is clever, nearly impossible to catch.
That this has not happened already is because of what most nerdy White guys are. Most don’t really want to blow things up, that’s the domain of guys who want to be paratroopers or SEALs. Most hackers, hack, to learn deeper the way things and systems are built, function, and operate together. Most have no intention of doing any harm, they’re just curious. But that does not mean they are not dangerous. Nearly all the infrastructure, which means the water, power, sewage, road, airway, communications, and other systems in the US, depend on a thin group of engineers to keep it running. Those who really understand it, fully, are even fewer. Enough nerdy White guys engage in conspiracies of one, and there will be an active, hot war ongoing. Between those who seek to force bowing down, and those who won’t and can’t submit.
