Why, after all, should Republicans and independents get all the fun?There are charges of racism to be flung with wild abandon on all sides!
The racism embedded in the progressive movement, and thus embedded in the Democratic Party, takes three interrelated forms.
These are humanitarian racism, anti-white racism, and anti-Semitic anti-Zionism.
Humanitarian racism is the primary form of racism practiced in the West, today, but it is a socially acceptable form of racism. It is a type of racism that currently flies under the radar of most Americans even as a form of racism. Humanitarian racists regard all minority groups, and all individuals within those minority groups, as perpetual victims of white racist imperialism, including minority students at elite American universities.
Western-left humanitaran racism acts as a sort-of umbrella racism that shields and nurtures hostility toward white people, malice toward the Jewish state of Israel, and demeaning condescension toward all peoples of non-European backgrounds.
The Muslim worlds, in particular, represent ancient peoples with long histories of struggle and dominance that created highly influential works of science, art, architecture, religious innovation, and various other forms of cultural production. Islam, after all, is the most successful example of aggressive imperialism in world history. Of the great national powers, only Islamic imperialism to this day maintains far-flung colonies thousands of miles from the imperial bases of Mecca (for the Sunnis) and Tehran (for the Shia).
When humanitarian racists look at Muslim societies outside of the West they see little children in need of protection in a way suggestive of nineteenth-century European notions of “white man’s burden.” When non-racists, of any type, look at Muslim societies, outside of the West, they see the inheritors of a once great theocratically-based empire that fell into decline when faced with superior western technology, but now resurgent as the West loses confidence in itself.
It is for this reason that the well-meaning students at the University of Wisconsin sell “All White People are Racists” hoodies, which is an act that ultimately encourages violence by thugs upon ordinary Anglo-type nobodies walking home from work.
It is also for this reason that so many anti-white humanitarian racists believe that there is something inherently malicious within white Wonder Bread culture, particularly in the United States. It is not merely that the petite bourgeoisie support western imperialism through their very act of being – that and paying taxes – but that there is something deplorable and irredeemably awful in White Ways of Being.
The concept is entirely nonsensical, of course, yet it is fascinating.
Many anti-white bigots think that Whiteness is not merely about skin-color, but about ways of being (ontologies) and ways of knowing (epestimologies). In this way Whiteness is essentialized into a form of evil that is directly embedded not only into white-European cultures, but into every aspect of white lives. White people are “white” not merely for coming out of the Euro-family of peoples, but as a matter of consciousness characterized by vapid inauthenticity, rapacious greed, and heartless militarism.
Like Ahab’s Great White Whale, “whiteness” symbolizes a form of evil in the world and, therefore, irrepentant white people, much like Jewish-Israelis and their “Zionist” supporters, are fabricated as an enemy of “indigenous” people, everywhere.
Humanitarian racism should be of particular interest to those of us concerned about the rise of antisemitic anti-Zionism and the well-being of the Jewish State of Israel.
Jewish-Israelis are surrounded by a hostile population in the Middle East that outnumbers them by a factor of 60 to 70 to 1. Many of those neighbors advocate for the destruction of those Jews given any real opportunity. The Long Arab War against the Jews of the Middle East is grounded in an irrational, Koranically-based rancor, but sold to the West as a matter of “social justice.”
This, in a nutshell, is the so-called “Palestinian narrative” and western humanitarian racists gobble it up like cherry pie.
Jewish-Israelis, who want nothing so much as to be left the hell alone to create their medical and technological doo-dads and live their lives without friends and family blown to smithereens by Jihadis, are depicted as the very worst people on the planet.
The Muslim peoples of the Middle East have persecuted the dhimmi minorities in that part of the world since Muhammad started receiving astral visitations from the Archangel Gabriel in the seventh-century.
And every generation Jews are told by both Arabs and Europeans just why it is that we deserve a good beating.
This generation is no different.
