Note: There is a new post up behind the green door on nationalism. It is a response, of sorts, to this podcast on AmRen. For those looking for audio stimulation, I did an interview with a libertarian. May God save us.
The late Joe Sobran famously said, “In their mating and migratory habits, liberals are indistinguishable from members of the Ku Klux Klan.” Less famous writers have often pointed out that the American Left talks like MLK but lives like the KKK. Without exception, the white people staking out fashionable positions on race do so from as far away from black people as possible. Antifascists love Portland Oregon because it is one of the least diverse cities in the county.
This was always true. Sobran made his observation about the American Left forty years ago when the country was still 85% white. Thirty million South American tourists later and the Left may be even more sensitive this reality. On the one hand, they have become violent in their racial politics, but also extremely sensitive to the reality of race in the daily lives. Forty years ago, white race hustlers actually went to the ghetto once in a while, but now they stay as far away as possible.
This heightened contradiction could prove to be a fatal flaw for the sorts of race politics the political class has enjoyed for decades. The California elections show that left-wing white people have zero tolerance for their preferred race policies. San Francisco voters removed far-left District Attorney Chesa Boudin from office. The reason was he let black criminals loose on the city in the name of racial vengeance. It turns out that left-wing voters do not want black guys robbing their local Walgreens.
In many respects, the American Left is the reactionary wing of the old ruling majority of the country that is slowly fading away. Left-wing strongholds tend to be wealthy, orderly places where the managerial class enjoy a white nationalist lifestyle. The exceptions are the carve out areas for minority candidates. They will vote overwhelming for Democrats, often resulting in comic figures like Maxine Waters. The Mexican version of this tends to be more sober minded, but still firmly Democratic.
The white reactionary enclaves, like many of the areas in San Francisco, are mostly about maintaining the old 1950’s lifestyle. The people there want safe streets, good schools, fashionable living and they are willing to pay for it. In addition to the high cost of living comes a tolerance for boutique ideas. The social contract on the Left is they support novel political ideas, as long as they get to live like the people in the hit television show Madman, set in the 1950’s.
This is not just an issue for the Left. Most conservative politicians and leaders live in fashionably liberal areas like Washington and Northern Virginia. The deal Conservative Inc. struck long ago was that the middle-class white suburbs get left alone, in exchange for going along with the egalitarian fantasies about race. They get to scold their voters about race while making sure to never make the mistake of getting off on the Martin Luther King Boulevard exit to get gas.
The problem with this old arrangement is the digital world is a smaller place, so it is really hard to hide from reality. In the 1960’s, these crackpot ideas about crime took a decade to sink their teeth into the culture. America in 1968 was still fairly good for most people but by 1978 the cost of fashionable politics was too high. In this age, the cost started hitting home hours after someone explained the new bail reform policy in the Facebook group for the smash and grab community.
There is another twist to this. The effort to racialize the Hispanic vote is not going the way the politicians expected. It turns out that Mexicans are not willing to think of themselves as black or share politics with blacks. The whole “people of color” thing is not working with Hispanics, especially Mexicans. Unlike blacks, this group wants tangible results, especially regarding working class issues. They vote like the old white working class, that the modern Left still enjoys mocking.
It is not all puppies and sunshine for Conservative Inc. with regards to the changing nature of the Hispanic vote. The happy talk about them being “natural conservatives” was right but using the old definition of conservative. That is, someone who wants to live in an orderly white neighborhood where a man can raise a family. They are not interested in waging pointless wars of choice, handing out favors to corporate donors and treating the middle-class like a dumping ground.
It is turning out that the old consensus where the managerial class gets to live like it is the 1950’s and the rest of us have to embrace the post-racial future is not going to hold up for much longer. When the soulless bugmen of San Francisco are jumping off the racial vengeance ship, the consensus is untenable. Politics, regardless of the system, must be about fixing potholes and controlling the criminal element. A system that cannot do the basics is not going to last very long.
None of this should be taken to mean the end is near. Both parties are relics of a bygone era run by fossils with no connection to reality. Most white people have no representation in politics. Hispanics appear to be on the same path. These groups will vote for whoever seems to represent their interests, but it will not matter as both parties are controlled by the usual suspects. In the short run it means more Marjorie Taylor Green type characters and a rise in general frustration.
