The ‘racism’ scare and other scares

There’s an interesting piece at TakiMag, called Skeered o’ the Racisms. The writer points out the way in which lefties/SJWs gin up a fear of this mysterious entity, ‘racism’, which is said to exist everywhere, at least everywhere White people (including White babies, according to Time magazine) exist.

And just in case there isn’t enough of this mysterious force everywhere, it has to be conjured, or hoaxed into existence, as the ‘demand for racism exceeds the supply‘ as I think Steve Sailer said. It seems Whitey is slacking off on the job, not committing the requisite number of ‘racist’ acts, so somebody’s got to do it.

Just an aside: there are a shocking number of politically correct commenters at TakiMag; are they ‘cuckservatives’ or SJWs? It’s getting hard to tell them apart these days.

But back to the need for a good ‘scare’ to motivate the Left and their mascots/pets: it’s ironic that the left is very fond of referring to legitimate threats as ‘scares’ or ‘witch hunts’. I read the IMDB website a lot because I watch many old movies, and maybe it’s masochistic on my part to read the reviews there but I do read them. It’s disturbing how very many commenters cannot watch an old movie without scrutinizing a film for the ‘racisms’ and all the other naughty ‘isms’ like ‘sexism’, as well as all the ‘phobias’ like homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and Islamophobia — have I left any of them out?  The IMDB commenters are also unhealthily obsessed with ‘pre-code’ films, which they prize very highly because, as one commenter said, it’s ”delightful” to find salaciousness and ‘corruption’ in old movies. Now, why this should evoke delight in a movie viewer is somewhat baffling to me, but I gather that it is because it confirms the lefty’s ‘faith’ that the popular image of the wholesome past is in fact false; that people were really hypocrites sinning it up behind closed doors, while putting up a false front of respectability. Human nature being what it is, certainly there were people who feigned innocence in public while being perverts, drunks, or druggies in private. But to say that ‘everyone’ was a liar and a hypocrite back then is just not true — still, it’s what the left believes. So they do love to see the pre-code movies in which we see drug usage (movies like ‘Three on a Match’) or other perversions (‘Wonderbar’).

Most of all, though, the left loves to uncover ‘racism’ in old movies, for example, a black character playing the role of a butler, maid, or janitor. And the SJWs are beside themselves with satisfaction if they spot an Oriental character (yes, I did say ‘Oriental’; it’s a perfectly good word) speaking pidgin English. One commenter on IMDB was shocked and troubled by the ‘‘degrading Chinese music‘ played in some movie with scenes of Chinese people or the Orient. I wasn’t aware that a musical score could be ‘degrading’ in and of itself. I actually found that complaint amusing.

Really, these obsessed lefties, these self-appointed advocates and ‘champions’ of their poor downtrodden minority clients/mascots, seem to need some evidence that their feared bogeyman, the spirit of ‘racism’, does exist now as then. It vindicates, for them at least, the enormous amounts of time and energy they devote to thinking and talking about it — and condemning it.

I think, personally, it’s a very appropriate use of the noun ‘scare‘ to describe their fixation with ‘racism’ as a scare. Interestingly, they almost always use the noun ‘scare’ to designate something they say is nonexistent: like the ‘Red scare’, as they call it, of the 1950s. There was no Communist threat in that era, so they say; it was all in the minds of the ‘far right’, people like Joe McCarthy and any number of others who warned of the presence of Communists in high places.  So it was just a ‘Red scare’, a mythical bogeyman created by the right.

They also favor the term ‘witch hunt’ in describing things like the HUAC (House Un-American Activities Committee) hearings. Just as they say there were no real witches in Salem or elsewhere, they say there were no Communists, the Venona papers notwithstanding.

So it was all a witch hunt, an attempt to harass and punish perfectly innocent people, for their political views. If it was a real ‘witch hunt’ the hunters were pretty inept, because despite the much-hyped ‘blacklists’ and other such measures, the Communist cabal went from strength to strength and they have pretty much enacted all their stated goals from the 1940s-50s. So who was paranoid?

Actually now the shoe is on the other foot; the lefties, despite having the whip hand, and having the media fully in their service, claim that the ‘far right’ is a threat to them.

I think it’s fitting to deploy their own terminology and rhetoric against them; yes, call the racism thing a ‘racism scare‘, in the spirit of their ‘Red scare’ propaganda. Call the racist hunt a ‘witch hunt’ because that, in truth, is what it is. Except that unlike in the past, there are no ‘witches’ on the White right working evil voodoo against the army of ‘victims’ the left has in tow.

I don’t know if the left really believes in their own hysterical rhetoric; some are utterly cynical and habitual liars, who lie to themselves, but it may be that some actually believe in their increasingly bizarre view of the world, especially the past. In any case, the SJWs are the ones who imagine, or pretend to imagine, threats and evil intentions around every corner.

If we’re lucky, in some saner time we will be able to read in honest history books about the ‘hysterical racism scare‘ of this era.

“Signed, White America”

Another hate hoax, this one with a slight twist.

“CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WLOS) – Police arrested a man who is accused of arson, ethnic intimidation, and committing a hate crime at Central Market in Charlotte on Thursday.

Curtis Dwight Flournoy, 32, is charged with burning a building of trade, malicious damage by use of an incendiary material, felony breaking and entering, ethnic intimidation, and anonymous or threatening letters.

Police searched for the man seen in surveillance video leaving a racist note, breaking a window at the business, and then setting a fire.”

When I read this, and saw the name of the accused, Flournoy, I jumped to the conclusion that the man charged was of Huguenot French ancestry; there are a number of people with names that are known as Huguenot names in that part of the South. My conclusion was wrong, as you can see by the photo of the accused.

In any case, it’s a relief to see that this ‘hate crime’ was likely not done by a White, but note this part of the story: the threatening note concluded with the signature “Signed, White America.”

Even without a signature like that, the media always, always assume that it is some White ‘hater’, when all too often the ‘hate crime’ turns out to be a ‘hate hoax.’ This fact is almost always swept under the rug by the mendacious media; when the crime is found to be a hoax, (usually by the person claiming to be the ‘victim’) they carefully bury that story on the back page somewhere.

In this case, it was not the victim who was the hoaxer, but Flournoy, pretending he represented ‘White America.’

But ultimately that’s the case with most of these kinds of hoaxes; the purported victim usually fakes the ‘hate crime’ with scrawled threats, ‘symbols of hate’ (so-called), usually a noose or a swastika or other such incendiary symbol. The point of claiming to have been victimized by some anonymous ‘hater’ or ‘nazi’ or [something]-phobe is not just to draw attention as we often assume, but to further the all-important ‘narrative’. As actual ‘hate crimes’ by White ‘bigots’ are pretty rare, once we subtract the many fakes, we see why it’s necessary, if you must have a ‘hate crime’, to act it out oneself. Pretty pathetic. Just doing the ‘hate crimes’ White bigots won’t do. If you want something done right, gotta do it yourself, as they saying goes.

In this case, the signature reveals the motive was not necessarily as much for the sake of threatening or driving out the Bhutanese man, but to keep the ‘White hater’ narrative alive. I would say that the perpetrator was targeting ‘White America’ more than he was this store owner. Just my opinion.

 

Yet more hoaxes

Breitbart reports that a recent supposed ‘hate crime’ has now been found to be a hoax.

The article also mentions other recent ‘hate’ crime allegations, usually with fictional ‘Trump supporters’ as the perpetrators, that are now admitted to be lies. The other fabricated incidents occurred in various places, from Lafayette, Louisiana to Santa Monica, California, New York City, and Fort Pierce, Florida.

Is this all coincidence? Are the fake ‘victims’ just the usual histrionic attention-seekers or deranged lefties? Or is this all coordinated by the same people who organize all these supposedly spontaneous protests, with bused-in protesters carrying professionally-made signs? Is Soros behind this?

Notice that the hate-hoax stories all involve not just garden-variety ‘bigotry’ wherein somebody is assailed with ”racial epithets and slurs” or ”hate symbols”, but the tall tales in these cases all involve vicious ”Trump supporters” going around harassing and beating POCs.

If the bogeyman doesn’t exist, they are forced to make up these stories. I don’t even think the lying media believe these things; they know it’s all agitprop. Shame on everybody involved in this. It’s a transparent campaign of lies, meant to further criminalize Whites, especially those ‘badwhites’ who voted for the latest incarnation of “Hitler.”

Hate hoax story

The other day I intended to post a link to this story, in which two students (now apparently ex-students) at Northwestern were charged with vandalism, in an alleged ‘hate crime’ incident.

It appears that the article as it appears on Gateway Pundit was ‘updated’ to correct some information; for instance, the article identified both students as Jewish, and I think the fact that the incident happened in March, and not after the recent election, was not made clear in the first version of the story.

I see now that the Thinking Housewife blog has removed the link to the story because of the confusion over some of the facts of the case.

I can only surmise that some dispute was made over whether the two ‘men’ were Jewish. Actually, I did wonder about the one on the left, who has a common Hispanic surname. The other student I would guess by surname and appearance to be Jewish — although some people do insist that there is no ‘Jewish look’, and that even a surname may be deceiving as to origin.

The surname ‘Kafker’ is found on this Jewish genealogy website, so that certainly makes it possible that the one accused student is Jewish. How does it matter? Well, that’s obvious; it helps the ‘narrative’ and the cause to cry ‘hate crime’ after creating the incident oneself; there have been many instances of hate hoaxes, in which those making the allegations have proven to have done the vandalism or scrawled threats or ‘hate symbols’ themselves. I try to draw attention to that fact because time and again these things are shown to be faked. There are websites devoted to exposing these but the lying media still shamelessly treat each and every allegation as gospel truth — why? Because victim groups cannot lie or deceive, can they? Only White Christians lie. Everyone else is above scrutiny and suspicion, even when we consider that the ‘victim’ groups have something to gain by such hoaxes. First, the libel against the “oppressor” group is itself revenge. Then there is the attention such individuals crave, and the crocodile-tears sympathy they get from guilt-ridden White lefties, and fellow ‘victims’. And it advances their fictitious worldview in which there are evil White right-wingers and ‘Nazis’ (these days, wearing Trump caps, no doubt) hiding around every dark corner to attack and abuse them, if not outright kill them. This is the excuse for much of the hysteria and the whimpering and crying emanating from college campuses and Tumblr blogs lately.

Anybody who fuels the flames of this insanity and paranoia (and it is paranoia, not reality) is guilty of inciting bloodshed, as the left and its various minority constituencies act out against random Whites. This stuff should not be taken lightly, and should not be allowed to go on.

The incident in the linked story happened seven months ago, but it is part of an ongoing pattern which has contributed to today’s out-of-control situation. It needs to stop. And it has to be exposed and talked about more.

Note: See the website Fake Hate Crimes for information on these hoax incidents.
