You have to twist yourself into a moral and intellectual pretzel to argue that racism can fight racism, but it’s being done with astonishing frequency and is not generally challenged. From John Derbyshire at unz.com:
I’ve been telling myself for twenty years that America’s ongoing Cultural Revolution couldn’t get any worse. But year by year it has gotten worse. The Red Guards now control all our major media outlets, including of course Social Media, and the entire educational system, public and private, from kindergarten to the Ivy League. This new Biden Administration has radicalized the federal government, too: the judiciary, the agencies, even the military have all been put in the hands of Red Guards.
What is it, this poisonous weed, this kudzu smothering our culture and silencing some of our smartest and most eloquent voices?
Well, if you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that a central concept in the revolutionary mindset, a central target of the Red Guards, is whiteness.
So, in hopes of improving our understanding, let’s take a short trip down Anti Whiteness Lane.
My starting point here: a group discussion broadcast by MSNBC on Morning Joe, June 8, 2021. There were five people in the discussion, four whites and a token mulatto lady named Mara Gay. Of the four whites, two were MSNBC Woke Bots whose names are vaguely familiar to me; I don’t know who the other two were.
