White City Fighting

I saw this on the wires the other day. South Africa is no longer trendy so the West ignores it, but it offers a glimpse of our future.

South Africa’s University of Cape Town (UCT) was rocked by racially-motivated destruction Tuesday, as a group of students looted several buildings and made a bonfire out of portraits and photographs of white people.

At UCT, a movement calling itself “Rhodes Must Fall” has been seeking to make the university provide more benefits and accommodations for poor students. It has also been seeking to stamp out the legacy of white leaders (in particular Cecil Rhodes) from the era when South Africa was dominated by those of European descent.
The protest movement took a destructive turn Tuesday, apparently prompted by university officials’ request that protesters move a shack they had constructed on Residence Road near several dormitories. The students responded by breaking into several nearby residential buildings, robbing them of portraits and photographs, as well as furniture and other materials, according to News24.

The portraits and photographs, which apparently were mostly or entirely of white people, were piled up and set ablaze.

When I was a young man, one of things that seemed obvious to me was that the fads and tastes of rich people did not scale down to poor people. Seeing communities go from two parent working-class families to divorced mothers and single middle-aged men, it was not hard to see that easy divorce was a terrible idea. Rich people can afford to bust up the marriage. They can carry the cost of a broken home.

Easy divorce was one of the worst things to hit the working classes, but it was not the only rich man fad to wash through the lower ranks. Casual drug use is one obvious example. The sexual revolution is another. These are things that are tolerable when you are immune from the want of money. They are a disaster when you must maintain the delicate balance required of the lower classes.

Not so long ago the rich understood this. They also believed they had an obligation to set a good example for the lower ranks. They also supported laws that backstopped these healthy customs. In fact, a good way to lose your place in society was to fail in your duty to set a proper example.

Today, of course, our elites compete with one another to see who can be the most offensive to decent people. The further down into the gutter they look for inspiration, the more they are celebrated by the culture czars. For instance, black culture is now the high culture, while stodgy old white guys are the butt of jokes.

It’s tempting to think this is deliberate and orchestrated. Guys like Steve Sailer argue that swinging a wrecking ball through the cultural institutions that hold up the middle-class is just part of the war of top and bottom versus the middle. It’s easy to see why people think that. The emergence of a global over-class does correlate to the collapse of middle and working class values in the West.

It strikes me that the root is the weird new religion of anti-racism, egalitarianism and multiculturalism. Even assuming nothing but good intentions, the resulting product is just a ragged anti-white ideology that celebrates every human pathology at the expense of Western tradition, simply because white is bad, meaning non-white is good.

Again, these trends have been a disaster for the working classes and increasingly hard on the middle-class in Western countries. Whatever benefits have accrued to the elites will inevitably be short lived, simply based on math. Rich white countries can afford to indulge in cultural nonsense for a while. Sweden is an obvious example.

In a world where whites are outnumbered even in their own lands, this is a civilizational catastrophe. This brings us back to South Africa. It is a click or two away from facing the same fate as Rhodesia in the last century. Life expectancy in South Africa was 64 when Apartheid ended. Now it’s 56, the same as in Somalia. South Africa is the rape capital of the world, where “corrective rape” is increasingly common.

If you look at the numbers, South Africa is a microcosm of what faces the West over the next century.

In a world increasing dominated by Africans, a religion of “hate whitey” is not going to turn out very well for whitey. Since whitey is responsible for the creation of and preservation of civilization, this spells doom for the civilized world. The lesson of South Africa is the lesson for the world. The people in charge need to do what must be done to maintain the pillars of civilization, even when they don’t like it.

Add to the African population increase the advance of militant Islam in the continent and we will be living in ever more interesting times.

South Africa is a bomb just waiting to explode as the various black tribes compete for power. As has been demonstrated repeatedly, tribal culture is incompatible with representative democracy. The whites in SA will be the common target of all the black tribes and either during or after the ascension to power of the most determined (and vicious) African tribe, the whites will be targeted. Also not reported is the animosity the native black SA tribes have for the black migrants from Zimbabwe , who are fleeing Zimbabwe because that nation has fallen apart (turns out the Ian Smith was… Read more »

Whites are already being targeted. White farmers are being murdered by blacks and their land stolen from them. Those who see the writing on the wall are trying to emigrate.

White people don’t burn down their own towns and cities. They have a propensity to go to other peoples towns and cities and burn those down when needs be.

The King of the Zulus did his part. He challenged blacks to stop embarrassing themselves with what they are doing to the great civilization handed over to them by whites.

Ahhh, South Africa. I wonder what Bono, Peter Gabriel, and the rest are up to now that they can’t play Sun City whenever they feel like stroking their egos? Seriously, though — just as Vox Day is probably right, God help us, when he says Norway will be putting up statues to Anders Breivik before too long, Hendrik Verwoerd is going to be getting a long hard second look here in the near future.

Really, the only solution remaining is to stock up on precious metals such as brass and lead, as well as decent liquor. The prepare to lock and load. There’s no choice left.

After studying what happened in Sarajevo, the items that really go up in worth are everyday things like shampoo, toothpaste, tampons, stock cubes, lighters and the humble plastic shopping bag. To think that we shun them at the counter.

One of the stories told by survivors of the siege of Sarajevo was that canned and bottled gravies and sauces were invaluable in staving off menu fatigue.

The conditions in post Mandela South Africa are reminiscent of post 1967 Detroit. Black government = shithole.

White civilization dug its own grave with good intentions and the west should have never provided any of our technology into these countries. Providing food, clothing and infrastructure to people who still haven’t developed a written language, the wheel or metal working was a bad idea from the start. Many influential westerners (mostly the rich) wanted everyone to believe that all human beings are the same, when in fact, we are not. While we all human beings, we have all developed our civilizations at different rates, the Egyptians, Chinese, Greeks, Romans developed over hundreds, if not thousands of years. I… Read more »

Karl, what are the odds that Germans will rise up and defend themselves? I appreciate what PEGIDA is trying to do, but it appears beset on all sides. We are praying for you on this side of the Atlantic.

Buckaroo (and Karl) trust me: there are plenty of people on my own side of the Atlantic who are praying the protests against mass immigration (aka the decline of western civilisation) work and the tide is turned.

It’s staring already but not widely publicized. Bavaria has threatened to sue if the federal immigration laws are not enforced. We can only hope other German states follow in this direction.

“In the next 14 days we will officially demand from the federal government to reintroduce certain legal relations on the borders,” Seehofer told the German Der Spiegel newspaper, adding that “the Bavarian government will have no other choice than to appeal to the Constitutional Court if it fails to do so.”

So true and yet it cannot be said. Today, that university in South Africa. 30 years from now, it’s Yale or Cambridge. Yale by Africans, Cambridge by Muslims. When Huntington wrote out his thesis about the battle of civilizations, he didn’t have mass immigration in mind.

Yes but did he have the cultural marxists in mind? After all, they are the the true and most bigoted racists of them all. Bringing the west, and hopefully the white race down to the lowest common denominator, is diversity, which creates societies, in our case the western hemisphere, incapable of the self determination and enlightenment necessary for a free society. That seems to me is the whole idea of using race as a tool to destroy the western civilizations. We are witnessing it in real time before our eyes with the islamist hordes the cultural marxists have enabled to… Read more »

Actually, genetic engineering that lowers people’s aggression and raises IQ would make an enormous difference.
There’ll obviously be some genetic engineering going on. The only question is what kind and whether it’s performed across the board or if rich parents will choose ‘artistic’ genes or ‘good spacial reasoning’ gene patches.
It also raises the (disturbing) possibility of ‘happy genes’, to ensure people are happy no matter what. This brings us back to Brave New World.

The elites in many advanced western countries are eager to overdose on political correctness because of a true fear of minorities. If the minorities are not placated with window dressing privilege they would revolt. The political correctness is at the expense of the middle and working class. The elites don’t care about the middle class as they are well behaved, docile group, you can piss on them daily and they may grumble but never revolt. Not so with the under class which are given to violence that lies beneath a thin veneer of calm. Another thing regarding the handed down… Read more »

“Hate Whitey” is an interesting concept, but as history has shown Whitey can survive in the colder regions and if Whitey can just stop inviting every potential Whitey-hater into their world they can make world for themselves. Sure, there may be no bananas, fewer holidays on sun-kissed beaches and many raw materials will go to waste (or at least not be used properly) but Whitey can be inventive and productive enough to get by. To be honest I am more optimistic about my race if it can in fact withdraw from what some call the darker regions of the world.… Read more »

@ UKer – Interesting point. But only I would only agree with your comment if you mean “whitey” is a northern European (I draw the north-south border at the Swiss-Italian border). Our southern European neighbors never really invented “work” in the terms you Brits and we Germans know it. Okay, the Greeks and Romans 2,000 years ago, no question. But after that…not so much. There is a work ethic we northern Europeans associate with real labor built upon hard science; aka the Industrial Revolution which made Britain and Germany the European powerhouses we still are today. I think most would… Read more »

I lived in Southern Africa. To return to see what has happened in Joburg and Cape Town is enough to turn your stomach. Africa has been returning to the jungle for decades. Why we are importing these people to the USA is beyond me, although Africans are far better than American blacks. Even Africians recognize real savages when they see one.

So if you are one of the old white guys so widely denigrated why should I care? I can’t even read out loud the column our African American local newspaper editor wrote about crime and who commits it in our city.
