Identity Politics has responded with outrage against People Magazine’s choice of white male country singer Blake Shelton as “sexiest man in the world.”
According to adherents of Identity Politics, the choice indicates that People Magazine is itself racist and part of the white supremacy movement to elevate white people above people of color.
The choice is doubly outrageous because, according to a writer in Salon, it reinforces and celebrates toxic white male sexuality and elevates a white man to a position of popular acclaim.
Every white person needs to read this article to understand how they are being demonized and marginalized to the point of oblivion.
By focusing primarily on white heterosexual males, Identity Politics tries to split white women off from white men by the use of the pejorative term “misogynist”, but, as the article reports, white women, such as Taylor Swift, are also publicly demonized for their whiteness.
BLAKE SHELTON and TAYLOR SWIFT
demonized by the elite media for the unforgivable crime of being white
Reading this article in The Unz Review reminded me of an article I read last November in a Texas university newspaper that declared white DNA to be an abomination. Addressing White Americans, the toxic headline read:
“YOUR DNA IS AN ABOMINATION!
WHITE IS OVER!”
Think about this for a minute. Suppose the writer had said “homosexual DNA is an abomination,” or “black DNA is an abomination,” or, heaven forbid, “Jewish DNA is an abomination.” Anyone who declared homosexuals, blacks, or Jews to be an abomination would be instantly fired, sued, charged with hate crimes and driven so deep into the ground that they would never reemerge.
The article in the student newspaper was a bit too much for Texas and produced a furor of its own.
Lost in the furor was the realization that the writer was correctly interpreting the Identity Politics that today defines the liberal/progressive/left. Hillary Clinton herself expressed Identity Politics when she declared Americans who rejected her as president to be “deplorables.”
CounterPunch printed an essay by its radio host that concluded Trump’s election was not legitimate because he was elected by racist, sexist, homophobic white male Trump deplorables. In other words, Identity Politics cannot be dismissed as some sort of idiocy on the part of a few kooks. It is institutionalized in American politics and culture and is becoming a habitual way of thinking.
The growing demonization of white people parallels the [past] demonization of the Jews and can result in marginalization and physical destruction.
LD: In the recent article in the Unz Review, already mentioned above, Gregory Hood notes that being born white is now seen as a “birth defect”. He is worth quoting at some length, given that what he says is a ringing endorsement of what Paul Craig Roberts is saying in this article: namely, that the White race is now under serious threat of physical elimination and is regarded with fear and loathing by our Jewish masters:
The real problem leftists seem to have with Taylor Swift is the fact that she is white and blonde, with Camille Paglia’s condemnation of her as a “Nazi Barbie” [see picture] serving as shorthand for how she is usually criticized. It’s probably no coincidence that Miss Swift, for once, won no MTV VMA awards despite being nominated for five…. to be white and a celebrity is to be inherently controversial….
The media has the power to define certain people as beautiful, stylish, or superior. The media also has the power to destroy such people overnight…. The declaration that “all white people are racist” or “all white people benefit from privilege” would have been regarded as self-evidently insane only a few years ago. Today, a simple flyer proclaiming “It’s Okay To Be White” creates nationwide hysteria….
Today, any positive representation of white people’s history, culture, or capabilities is inherently racist…. The word “white” itself has already become something of an insult among journalists…. The next step is to ensure no white person as an individual can have a positive portrayal in mass culture unless he denies his own people…. The political endgame is not hard to imagine. Displacement from the culture is followed by displacement from our nations. Cultural elimination paves the way for physical elimination.” (Emphasis added)
(Paul Craig Roberts continues)
The immigration policies of white countries have created a diversity basis for ganging up on whites.
If we put together a diverse population with the anti-white ideology of Identity Politics, we have a political and cultural trap for white people.
It seems paradoxical that Identity Politics is led by white / liberal / progressive / leftists advocating their own marginalization. However, as it is a correct conclusion from Identity Politics that white DNA is an abomination, white adherents of the ideology can logically see their demise as a benefit to humanity. But why should they be allowed to condemn whites who do not see themselves as an abomination?
What we are seeing unfold with Identity Politics was foretold by Jean Raspail in his futuristic novel The Camp of the Saints.* Perhaps white people should read it as an indication of their possible fate.
