Why Multiculture Will Always Fail

Why Multiculture Will Always Fail

Nicolai Sennels’ latest guest-essay concerns a topic that has greatly preoccupied Western European leaders in recent months: the failure of Multiculturalism.

Why multiculture will always fail
by Dr. Nicolai Sennels

Several leading European politicians have now declared the multicultural project dead and impossible to implement. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has concluded that the “so-called ‘multikulti’ concept — where people would ‘live side-by-side’ happily — did not work” (BBC, 17. October 2010). Merkel said straight out that the attempt to build a multicultural society has “utterly failed”. British prime minister David Cameron (BBC, 5 Feb 2011) and French president Nicolas Sarkozy (The Telegraph, 11 Feb 2011) quickly followed suit and declared multiculturalism a “failed” effort. Cameron added that the “UK needed a stronger national identity” and Sarkozy argued that “We have been too concerned about the identity of the person who was arriving and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him.”

As a psychologist who has had hundreds of immigrants as clients, my conclusion is that the multicultural society will always fail because it is contrary to the fundamental psychological principles that are needed for building healthy communities. This basic psychological principle concerns identity — national identity. As quoted above, Cameron and Sarkozy reached the same conclusion.

National identity

For a society to succeed, its citizens must be able to unite around common core values. The most fundamental values are national identity and a wish for fellowship with one’s countrymen. National identity means that you feel like a Dane if you live in Denmark. Fellowship means that similarities — first of all the fact that you live in the same country — means more than differences, for example religion, color, or country of origin.

National identity and the feeling of fellowship increase work morale, taxpaying morale, morale in relation to social services, and respect for the country’s laws in general. People who experience themselves as part of the community will feel that they harm themselves if they harm the community. National identity is also important for respect towards the nation’s authorities.

The sense of community is crucial to the quality of life for us “pack” animals, and common core values are the foundation of the mutual trust and mutual helpfulness, openness, understanding and respect among the population. People who are deeply divided on core values and who want the community to evolve in completely different directions simply feel less fellowship with one another.

When people identify with a culture whose values are not rooted in the nation’s indigenous culture, this identification happens at the expense of identification with the greater community. The step towards acting in violation of the community’s interest is therefore shorter, which is one of the reasons for the dramatic over-representation of certain immigrant groups in crime and unemployment statistics.

Multiculturalization of a society, therefore, leads to an increased need for control, prohibitions, police, and tougher sentences in order to prevent internal factions from cheating or committing crimes against the community. Multicultural societies thus move easily towards a less democratic and more fascistic condition. The former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt concludes in hindsight: “The concept of multiculturalism is actually incompatible with a democratic society. … If one asks, where in the world are multicultural societies functioning, he quickly comes to the conclusion, that multiculturalism can only exist peacefully within strong authoritarian states.” (Hamburger Abendblatt, 24 Nov 2004).

Anti-culture

Fortunately, immigrants from almost all over the world have been able to accept and identify with our basic Western values. There are a few problems with organized crime and demographic clumping among immigrants from Asia and Eastern Europe but it has never became a threat to society.

Despite certain success stories and role models, one culture has proved impossible to integrate sufficiently, namely the Islamic one. Muslim culture and religion have demonstrated some inherent self-protective mechanisms which makes Muslim immigrants resistant to external influences from the host culture.

What we are dealing with here is a culture that in the most important areas — including true democracy, free speech, equality of women, and tolerance towards other faiths — has changed very little or not at all since it first appeared in a medieval clan society 1,400 years ago. It is almost unbelievable, given how much the rest of the world has changed during that time. The unfortunate combination of excessive Western tolerance and a lack of flexibility from the Muslim culture’s side has resulted in a kind of cultural osmosis, where Western values have not yet been able to penetrate the Islamic world while Islamization diffuses from the Muslim community into non-Muslim societies.

In multicultures which includes Muslim culture, the problems arising from lack of national identity and sense of community are therefore proportionately larger. Hence today the term “multiculture” is equivalent to societies where both Muslim and non-Muslim cultures exists. A more precise term would therefore be “bi-culture”. Instead of integrating into the common society, parallel societies appears, where benefit fraud and tax evasion are highly prevalent and where lawlessness and hostility against non-Islamic authorities are extreme and often violent.

According to police, Denmark has 25 to 30 “sensitive areas” with many immigrants, where police and fire departments can not work without risking being attacked (Midtjyllands Avis, August 7th, 2010). One among many examples is the Facebook page “Ishoj Ghetto”, which encourages its 650 members with the following battle cry: “My brothers. We shall destroy all the police cars approaching Ishoj. It is our city.” (Ekstrabladet, August 3rd, 2010). Holland, France, Britain, Belgium, Germany and most other Western European countries have cities and ghettos with similar problems. A study in Taastrup (city in Denmark) shows that immigrants and their descendants are behind 75 percent of all benefit fraud cases — although the proportion of immigrants is only 21 percent (Jyllands-Posten, August 31st, 2010).

Across Western Europe, there are parallel Muslim societies that have reached a stage so advanced that they have built their own political, economic and legal infrastructure. The executive, legislative and judicial power lies with the imams, police-like Muslim father patrol groups, homemade Sharia Courts and Islamic mediation meetings. The economy is characterized by the fact that Muslims prefer to buy goods and services from other Muslims, and the Islamic Havala banking (a system of private money transfers outside of authorities and banks) has largely replaced the normal ways of conducting financial transactions. It is too short a jump from this well-developed Islamic infrastructure and aggressive attitude toward the non-Islamic environment to the demands for autonomy and secession. Such demands have been made by Muslims throughout Islamic history, and in today’s China, Russia, Thailand, Africa, and the Balkans Muslims use guerrilla warfare, terrorism, kidnappings and threats to achieve this end.

Common sense and mature life experience could have prevented us from making the mistake to begin with. A couple of decades too late — always being the last to admit a mistake — our politicians finally admit the obvious problems (but only after opinion polls proved that the majority of voters do not want multiculture). But what will they do about it?

Three obvious solutions

The first and most basic solution is to stop immigration from countries that are not Western-oriented, which primarily applies to the Islamic world. As the Americans says: “If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.”

Secondly, we need to do as Angela Merkel, David Cameron, and Nicolas Sarkozy recommend: We must strengthen the national identity both among immigrants and the indigenous population. This is done primarily by making our educational institutions and public service media focus more on our countries’ history, culture and values. Moreover, we must force immigrants to integrate by making language proficiency, knowledge about our culture and history, adherence to the law and tax payment for e.g. 10 years a condition for receiving social benefits. Problematic demographic developments can partly be solved by limiting the state’s economic child support to the country’s average amount of children per mother (2 children). We do that in Denmark and it prevents immigrants from moving to Denmark, having/bringing a lot of kids and living on the money that the family get from the state for each child.

Thirdly, we must stop diluting and challenging our own culture and national identity through Islamization and parallel societies. The influential mosques and Islamic cultural centers makes Muslims stay in a very rigid version of their original culture. Dominant symbols like minarets, Halal food in public institutions, closure of public taxpayer-funded sports facilities in order to make Muslim women able to use them, state-supported Koranic schools, prayer rooms in public workplaces, hospitals, etc. are also harmful to the development of national identity among both immigrants and the rest of us. Islamization and parallel societies make it possible to live from cradle to grave in non-Muslim countries without ever leaving the circle of Muslim culture. It is contradictory and counterproductive to want national identity among immigrants when the government simultaneously allows and even supports Islamization.

Muslim parallel societies in the West produce tens of thousands of alienated citizens with very low or no national identity and loyalty — every year. These parallel communities must be dissolved by all means possible. This includes zero tolerance towards any breach of the law. Tax authorities, Social Services and the police play a crucial role in this context.

I would like to add that after working as a prison psychologist for years, my conclusion is that the only thing criminal immigrants really fear is being deported. We also need to do as the Danish Municipality of Aarhus does: Send female social workers or midwives into the homes of non-Western immigrants to meet with the women (without participation of male family members) to ensure that they and their daughters are safe, free and know their rights to divorce, and about family planning, contraception, women’s shelters and repatriation (state-paid emigration to the family’s country of origin).

In order to stop multiculture and challenge the rigid traditionalistic, unassimilable and widespread version of Muslim culture, the women have to be freed to choose their sexual partners, number of children, clothing style, and religion. As the Danish Muslim activist Kristina Khader, initiator of the women’s advisory centre Project New Hymen, told me in an interview: “The social control of women aims to preserve the core of the Muslim culture. A big part of the Muslim culture’s core is about female sexuality.” (JP-blog “Kulturkloeften”, November 2, 2009).

In general multiculture must be fought by making the inability or unwillingness to integrate so practically difficult and economically unprofitable that repatriation the only attractive option.

This is a long list of necessary demands and consequences, but the carrot is equally big: Participation on equal footing in the world’s freest, richest and best functioning culture — the West.

3 thoughts on “Why Multiculture Will Always Fail

  1. “In order to stop multiculture and challenge the rigid traditionalistic, unassimilable and widespread version of Muslim culture, the women have to be freed to choose their sexual partners, number of children, clothing style, and religion.” The very statement you then quote from Kristina Khader proves why this is never going to happen. As for your comments as to the west and how well it’s culture is working at the present time you could also get some pretty good arguments on that as well!

  2. In Europe, where multiculturalism, not assimilation, has been the official policy, the mounting social chaos resulting from multiculturalism leads multiculturalist political leaders now to declare that multiculturalism has failed and to call for efforts at integration and assimilation.

    However, it is most doubtful that a society which has already been radically reshaped by multiculturalism can change direction. Much more than a speech is needed; it would require a radical reversal in the institutional, ideological, and attitudinal framework of the entire society. And, even if the shift from multiculturalism to assimilationism took place, the latter would inevitably lead back to multiculturalism, as a result of the massive presence of unassimilable peoples in the West – carriers of alien cultural identities and of claims and grievances against our culture, who want to make their own mark on the world.

    Why the white working class is alienated, pessimistic
    By National Journal – Tue May 31, 10:17 am ET
    By Ronald Brownstein
    National Journal

    Almost no one noticed, but around George W. Bush’s reelection in 2004, the nation crossed a demographic milestone.
    From Revolutionary days through 2004, a majority of Americans fit two criteria. They were white. And they concluded their education before obtaining a four-year college degree. In the American mosaic, that vast white working class was the largest piece, from the yeoman farmer to the welder on the assembly line. Even as late as the 1990 census, whites without a college degree represented more than three-fifths of adults.
    But as the country grew more diverse and better educated, the white working-class share of the adult population slipped to just under 50 percent in the Census Bureau’s 2005 American Community Survey. That number has since fallen below 48 percent.
    The demographic eclipse of the white working class is likely an irreversible trend as the United States reconfigures itself yet again as a “world nation” reinvigorated by rising education levels and kaleidoscopic diversity. That emerging America will create opportunities (such as the links that our new immigrants will provide to emerging markets around the globe) and face challenges (including improving high school and college graduation rates for the minority young people who will provide tomorrow’s workforce).
    Locust: In 1960, when JFK defeated Nixon, America was a nation of 160 million, 90 percent white and 10 percent black, with a few million Hispanics and Asians sprinkled among us. We are a nation founded by an ALL white, an English speaking people, the first 200 years of our history we were a 90% white nation, immigration up until the middle of the last century was almost universally white, so my kinsmen we are not a world nation, we are a white nation, the fact that millions of illegal aliens, and other non-whites have been allowed into our nation without our consent does not erase the history of our glorious people, we are here, and we will not go silently into the night!

    Still, amid all of this change, whites without a four-year college degree remain the largest demographic bloc in the workforce. College-educated whites make up about one-fifth of the adult population, while minorities account for a little under one-third. The picture is changing, but whites who have not completed college remain the backbone of many, if not most, communities and workplaces across the country.
    They are also, polls consistently tell us, the most pessimistic and alienated group in American society.
    Locust: The Immigration Act of 1965 and the cultural revolution of the ’60s, has destroyed this nation, who can honestly say that America today is better off? The Skyrocketing crime, anti-white discrimination, massive cities and states on the verge of collapse! If you say yes, you my friend are ignoring reality, there is a reason white flight exists, why you don’t go to certain neighborhoods. And as one studies the latest projections of the census the America of our grandchildren will be another country altogether, a nation unrecognizable to our parents, if we still exists as a nation at all.
    We live in a nation where today, the economy is crumbling, we all know it! A nation where being a citizen means absolutely nothing other then paying taxes to the wealth redistribution system, our money pays for our displacement, you know it and I know it, and this may come as a surprise to many of you, they know it too!
    In a couple decades Whites will be a minority in the nation of our fore fathers, Hispanics in the United States, over 100 million, will be equal to the entire population of Mexico today. Our Asian population will be almost as large as our Black population today, and Blacks will be a nation within a nation, a nation of poverty, crime, rivaling that of any African nation.
    The latest measure of this discontent came in a thoughtful national survey on economic opportunity released last week by the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Economic Mobility Project. If numbers could scream, they would probably sound like the poll’s results among working-class whites.
    One question asked respondents whether they expected to be better off economically in 10 years than they are today. Two-thirds of blacks and Hispanics said yes, as did 55 percent of college-educated whites; just 44 percent of noncollege whites agreed. Asked if they were better off than their parents were at the same age, about three-fifths of college-educated whites, African-Americans, and Hispanics said they were. But blue-collar whites divided narrowly, with 52 percent saying yes and a head-turning 43 percent saying no. (The survey, conducted from March 24 through 29, surveyed 2,000 adults and has a margin of error of ±3.4 percent.)
    What makes these results especially striking is that minorities were as likely as blue-collar whites to report that they have been hurt by the recession. The actual unemployment rate is considerably higher among blacks and Hispanics than among blue-collar whites, much less college-educated whites.
    Yet, minorities were more optimistic about the next generation than either group of whites, the survey found. In the most telling result, 63 percent of African-Americans and 54 percent of Hispanics said they expected their children to exceed their standard of living.
    Even college-educated whites are less optimistic (only about two-fifths agree). But the noncollege whites are the gloomiest: Just one-third of them think their kids will live better than they do; an equal number think their children won’t even match their living standard. No other group is nearly that negative.
    This worry is hardly irrational. As Massachusetts Institute of Technology economists Frank Levy and Tom Kochan report in a new paper, the average high-school-educated, middle-aged man earns almost 10 percent less than his counterpart did in 1980. Minorities haven’t been exempt from that trend: In fact, high-school-educated minority men have experienced even slower wage growth than their white counterparts over the past two decades, calculates Larry Mishel, president of the liberal Economic Policy Institute.
    But for minorities, that squeeze has been partially offset by the sense that possibilities closed to their parents are becoming available to them as discrimination wanes. “The distinction is, these blue-collar whites see opportunities for people like them shrinking, whereas the African-Americans [and Hispanics] feel there are a set of long-term opportunities that are opening to them that were previously closed on the basis of race or ethnicity,” said Mark Mellman, a Democratic pollster who helped conduct the Pew survey.
    By contrast, although it is difficult to precisely quantify, the sense of being eclipsed demographically is almost certainly compounding the white working class’s fear of losing ground economically. That huge bloc of Americans increasingly feels itself left behind—and lacks faith that either government or business cares much about its plight. Under these pressures, noncollege whites are now experiencing rates of out-of-wedlock birth and single parenthood approaching the levels that triggered worries about the black family a generation ago. Alarm bells should be ringing now about the social and economic trends in the battered white working class and the piercing cry of distress rising from this latest survey.

    Locust: Don’t let them fool you, the media is hiding the truth, they are lying to your face. This phenomenon is not only occurring in America, every White nation around the global is experiencing the same event, we are under attack world wide! Don’t you get it, every nation we built from America to Britain, Germany to Spain, Canada to Australia and everywhere else we are on the offensive, our birth right is being stolen from us as I write this (June 2011), to think this is not a planned ethnic cleansing of the white man and the collapse of our civilization is fucking retarded! I do not believe in conspiracies, but look at the evidence, please look at it! Stop thinking someone will save us, no one is out there, no one is coming to save you. You have a choice to make, I’m not saying violence, we will cross that bridge when the time comes, we reserve the right to defend our homelands and its people from all enemies foreign and domestic.
    What I am saying is stop being silent damn you, silence is for cowards and we are not a cowardly people! Stop sitting back doing nothing while we lose city after city, raise the alarm in your own family and community, prepare for what is coming. Organize amongst those whom you can trust, spread the word, and when the time comes, we will speak with one voice, and when you hear the call, stand the hell up and be counted as men, stand and say enough is enough, and if its a fight they want, its a fight they’re going to get!

    The left knows full well that millions of white people are nearing that point of no return.
    They near that moment where they will make the decision to join the ranks of Those Who Can See.
    The alternative is paying for a system of government (and by extension, business system) that hates their existence.
    No problem facing the United States can be dealt with until Black-Run America ends. And as the ranks of Those Who Can See begin to swell, the power of Black-Run America to frighten away frank discussion of race ends and the courage to finally start Eric “My People” Holder’s discussion on race begins.
    Older white people, highly educated, with no hope. Younger white people, highly educated, with no hope. Both because they have the wrong skin color in Black-Run America. Working class whites left behind to enjoy the Black Undertow… all the aforementioned no longer economically viable in Black-Run America.
    That a vast Blue Ocean awaits the person who decides to become the public face of the battle against Black-Run America will eventually persuade someone incredibly prominent to voice what will immediately be universally denounced.
    The market opportunity for serving Those Who Can See will eventually become too obvious not to cultivate. Matt Drudge has shown that that moment is near.
    Are white people gaining courage to confront the term ‘racist’? Rand Paul did win and he has shown courage against a barrage of attacks…

    Black Run America (BRA) will not end until white people understand that they have legitimate interests and that these interests matter in a nation that is increasingly hostile to Pre-Obama America and its founding documents.

    There will never be an end to the question “And Then?” and it should be obvious that there Can be no peace between SPWL whites and Untouchable whites.

    But what is happening is something elemental: white people are starting to think as a group, if only implicit at first.Though the Tea Party people look for Black faces to make the movement seem palatable to those who believe racism to be a mental illness, the tectonic plates that hold together acceptable dialogue are shifting.
    In the case of Omar Thornton, the slaughter of eight people becomes secondary thanks to the accusations of racism put forth by a mass murderer. The burden-of-proof falling to the families of those dead white males who are forced to defend their loved ones memories (already dead at the hands of a malicious individual) against the claim of racist.

    Yet, in the story of John William King few media outlets decided to investigate the motive behind the tragic death of James Byrd. Instead, Byrd became a symbol used to demonize all white people and King just another example of white-on-black crime (DWL’s look for these types of crime everywhere, deciding that Black-on-white crime is boring to report on and fails to serve any role in promoting their agenda). Salon.com did report this:
    Victims of prison rape often turn their anger against innocents when they are set free. John William King — the young white supremacist who dragged African-American James Byrd to death in Jasper, Texas, in 1998 — is one such case. King was an ex-con; he’d served 21 months for burglary in the Beto Unit, the toughest joint in Texas. Shortly after arriving in prison, King — then 5-foot-7 and 140 pounds — was attacked by black prisoners and raped, according to his attorneys. He emerged from the dungeon transformed.
    Rape, as we have learned in a past entry, is a tool of warfare employed to demonize and humiliate a population.

    It pains me to write this, but what the Omar Thornton story has shown can best be summed up by dialogue from the 1996 movie Independence Day. With humanity on the verge of extinction, a downed alien pilot is questioned as to the motives of the extraterrestrial invaders:
    President:I know there is much to learn from each other if we can make a truce. We can find a way to Co-exist. can there be a peace between us?
    Alien: Peace? NO PEACE!
    President: What is it you want us to do?
    Alien: Die… Die.
    The word of a mass-murdering individual is taken as literal gospel, for daring to harbor unorthodox views on race is the greatest heresy in 21st century American life. As Larry Auster wrote:
    This shows how the central belief of modern America, and the keystone of the modern liberal order, remains what it has always been: the belief in white guilt. The ultimate though unspoken premise of modern America is that whites deserve to be killed by blacks. What else can explain the fact that it is the white victims of the black mass murderer whose moral character is being questioned, not that of the black mass murderer?
    Peace? There can be no peace.

    Will “Obama Killed Osama” Save Black Run America?
    Posted on May 3, 2011 by Hunter Wallace

    NewsOne predicts the inevitable reelection of Barack Hussein Obama in 2012
    Black America
    NewsOne is getting a big head.
    #BlackTwitter is exulting with glee that the death of Osama bin Laden at the hands of Barack Hussein Obama will save Black Run America and prove to be a mortal blow to Donald Trump and the Birther movement.
    There has been a peculiarly black reaction to the death of Osama bin Laden. White people are reacting to Osama bin Laden’s death by purging themselves of the fear of the Islamic boogeyman who has haunted their imaginations for a decade. Black people are interpreting Osama’s death as a victory for the Black Run America system.
    A few observations:
    (1) Black people are less intelligent and more emotional than Whites and this is reflected in the substandard analysis of the black punditry.
    (2) Black people assume that White people are reacting to the death of Osama bin Laden in the same way (i.e., this is a victory for a Black World) when that is not the case at all.
    White people see the death of Osama bin Laden as a victory for the CIA, Navy Seals, “the troops” and “our heroes” who made all the important sacrifices. This was a military operation years in the making. The military brass had been pushing it on Obama for several months.
    (3) Black people are unable to see that Barack Obama has only succeeded in removing one major figure – the boogeyman – from the national political chessboard leading up to the 2012 elections.
    (4) Black people desperately want to believe that the death of Osama bin Laden will reconcile White people to Black Run America who have no racial interest in the preservation of that system.
    In the short term, Barack Obama will get a bump in the polls. In the long term, Barack Obama faces an altered political landscape where the attention of White voters is even more focused on domestic issues like the economy.
    Remember, White voters judge their leaders by what they can do for them, not by what they have already done for them. Obama defeated McCain in 2008 because White America was sold on the idea that Barack Obama could fix the economy and bridge the racial divide.
    In the post-Osama world, the Islamic boogeyman is gone, but sky high gas prices, chronic unemployment, the soaring national debt, and White anxiety over social and economic downward mobility are all still “out there.”
    Let’s examine NewsOne’s bulletproof argument that Obama will win reelection in 2012:
    (1) Obama killed Osama – The 2012 election won’t be about Osama bin Laden. Now it is almost certain to be about the economy and social issues because White voters won’t be distracted by “national security” issues as they were in 2004.
    (2) The GOP doesn’t have their candidate – Actually, the field of potential candidates will dramatically narrow as foreign policy becomes less of a pressing issue.
    The 2008 election was largely a verdict on the Iraq War. The so-called “three pillars” of the conservative stool were divided because social, economic, and “national security” conservatives were unable to unify behind a candidate.
    Now that Osama bin Laden is dead, the eventual Republican candidate will almost certainly be whoever can position himself as the most persuasive “Mr. Fix It” economic candidate who can harness populist outrage over social issues.
    We are not saying that is a good thing. It is just a likely projection.
    (3) The economy is looking up – No one in White America believes this.
    White voters overwhelmingly believe the economy is getting worse, not better. It might be getting better in the Beltway, but that is a bad thing in Dixie, Heartland, and Foundry.
    What’s more, even in the states where the economy is not so bad, energy intensive states like Wyoming and North Dakota, Barack Obama and Black Run America have suffered a massive decline in popularity.
    (4) They got no way to win PAM voters – The Republican candidate isn’t going to win California, Illinois, or New York anyway. It doesn’t matter how many blacks or Hispanics live in those states.
    Alternatively, the Republican candidate has a much better shot now at winning Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin due to black flight from the Midwest and White anger over high gas prices.
    Blacks are moving to the South where Whites are relatively more racially conservative. They have moved to Georgia in droves where the Democratic Party was virtually annihilated in the 2010 midterm elections.
    Blacks have less clout, not more.
    (5) The Republicans must field a candidate that will make peace with a younger, more multicultural America – Just the opposite is true.
    Young people have never voted at the same rate as elderly people. There are more elderly White people who are pissed off about the direction of the country. That is why the 2010 midterm election was such a huge setback for the Democratic Party.
    The news for Black Run America gets even worse when you consider the rapidly consolidating White electorate:
    The rest of the white electorate remains deeply cool to Obama, the Pew survey found. Just 38 percent of college-educated white men said they approve of the president. That’s down from the 42 percent of the vote he won from those men in 2008, and only a slight improvement from the miniscule 35 percent House Democrats won with them in 2010.
    Obama’s approval rating in the Pew survey stood at just 34 percent among white women without a college education-the so-called waitress moms. Democrats have often had high hopes for capturing those economically-strained, culturally-conservative women, but the new result only underscores their consistent Republican tilt: Obama won just 41 percent of them in 2008, and House Democrats just 34 percent of them in 2010.
    The toughest group for Obama remains white men without a college-education-the blue-collar workers who constituted the foundation of the Democratic electoral coalition from 1932 to 1968. Just 35 percent of them said they approve of his performance in the Pew poll. That’s below even the 39 percent of them Obama carried in 2008, though slightly above the Democrats’ microscopic 32 percent showing with them in 2010, according to the exit poll. All of these results suggest that the gap between Obama’s support among college-educated white women and non-college white men-which stood at a formidable 13 percentage points in 2008-might easily widen even further in 2012.
    Looking at the white electorate by age shows fewer fissures — but one bright red flag for the president. In the Pew survey, Obama’s approval rating among white seniors stands at just 38 percent; he draws just 35 percent approval from those aged 50-64 and 40 percent from those 30-49. Generally, that’s slightly, but not markedly, below his support from those groups in 2008.
    Perhaps the most ominous trend for Obama in the Pew survey is that just 41 percent of whites under 30 said they approved of his performance; in 2008, he won 54 percent of those younger whites. In the 2010 exit poll, Democrats’ support among those whites sagged to 45 percent, but even that remained much higher than their backing among older whites.
    Multicultural triumphalists have always claimed that White Gen X’ers and White Millennials would save Black Run America. According to this theory, when all those prejudiced, reactionary, conservative elderly White people die off, America will finally emerge as a tolerant, multicultural paradise.
    This argument suffers from the huge flaw that it was the “Greatest Generation” and the “Baby Boomers” who created Black Run America in the first place. No one was more supportive of BRA than the hippie generation who grew up on the counter-culture.
    The latest polls show that White Gen X’ers and White Millennials have turned more sharply against Barack Obama than any other White demographic. In fact, opposition to Barack Obama now unifies every subgroup of the White electorate with the exception of college educated White women, a majority of whom still voted against him in 2008.
    White America has over a year to enjoy Barack Obama’s stewardship of the economy before the 2012 election. In that time, one of two things will almost certainly happen:
    (1) Gas prices will rise to record levels.
    (2) Gas prices will choke the economy into another recession.
    Either way, Barack Obama will be judged in 2012 on the basis of his response to White anxiety over the economy, not on the death of Osama bin Laden. The death of the boogeyman and continued instability in the Middle East only makes it more likely that the economy will be the major issue.
    NewsOne is setting itself up for a disappointment.
    Discussion Question: What happens to Black Run America on “The Day The EBT Card Stops Working?”

    Language of Rebellion
    Posted on June 2, 2011 by Hunter Wallace

    The revolt against Black Run America will begin where it was born
    Alabama
    Looking back, the most memorable and penetrating articles that I wrote about last year was the series about the “mainstreamer” vs. “vanguardist” controversy.
    Nothing much has changed since then.
    The “mainstreamers” are still holding their annual conferences. The “vanguardists” are still plotting the total destruction of the system in their podcasts and blog entries.
    My own views have evolved significantly since that time. It has been a natural progression from the theories that I was expounding last year.
    Everyone has noticed that we rarely talk about the vanguardists here anymore. We gradually lost interest in those people. Fighting with them is now seen as a waste of time. It is a distraction from our current race project.
    Mainstreaming White Identity
    If we settled the theoretical issues about the need to “mainstream” White racial consciousness last year, this year we have broken off completely from “the movement,” scrapped its ideology, and set sail by ourselves into uncharted waters.
    There is a very simple explanation for this: we have multiple lines of evidence that confirm we are not alone.
    This site has always been unusual in that we keep very close tabs on the pulse of White America. As “mainstreamers,” we rejected the idea that ordinary people (aka “lemmings”) are really as stupid and naive about race as the vanguard has made them out to be.
    Following the polls and analyzing elections has always been one of our favorite things to do around here. It is explains much of the content that is found on this website.
    Here’s what we have recently learned:
    (1) We learned from the Pew Study that not even SWPLs believe the lie that “racism” is holding back African-Americans in our society and that more “civil rights” legislation is needed to uplift them to equality.
    The only White people who believe that “racism” is holding back African-Americans are the “Solid Liberals” who are ubiquitous in the MSM. No one else really believes that anymore.
    (2) We learned from the Rasmussen Polls that the only people who believe in Black Run America are African-Americans and the DWL political class.
    The vast majority of White people – something in the neighborhood of 64 to 77 percent – believe that America’s best days are in the past and that America is headed in the wrong direction under Barack Hussein Obama.
    (3) We know that White America is mad … I mean really, really mad, unusually mad, in that for the first time in our memory nearly all sections of the White electorate – young and old, rich and poor, male and female, college and high school educated, are united against Barack Hussein Obama and are swiftly consolidating into a racial bloc.
    Some people like to pick on White women … just 34 percent of White women without a college degree support Barack Obama. And that is at the national level.
    We know that only 35 percent of White working class men support Barack Obama and that something like an anemic 21 percent of them voted for Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections.
    Obama has the support of 38 percent of White seniors, 35 percent of White Baby Boomers, 40 percent of White Gen Xers, and 41 percent of White Millennials.
    In 2008, Barack Hussein Obama won 54 percent of White Millennials, but his support among White Millennials fell to 45 percent in 2010 and had fallen to 41 percent by April 2011.
    Now that White Millennials are becoming “Boomerangs,” they have turned more sharply against Obama than other types of White people. Graduating from college and moving back home to live with their parents seems to be having a chastening “hate effect” upon former dewy eyed Obamaniacs.
    (4) Just the other day, we learned from another study that White America now believes that anti-White bias has become a more serious problem than anti-black prejudice. In hindsight, the 2000s were a watershed decade in which the pendulum in White America swung from racial altruism to racial defense.
    (5) In the 2010 midterm elections, we saw what was called “unprecedented White flight” from the Democrats, which was undoubtedly a reflection of the changes in White racial attitudes that we are seeing in all these other polls, not any real enthusiasm for Republicans.
    I’ve read a lot of other racial polls over the past eight months. These are just some of the most recent ones that come to mind and they all point to the same inescapable conclusion.
    There is massive disaffection with the status quo in White America. It is not just a few oddballs and lunatics on the internet who are pissed off about Black Run America. The feeling of alienation extends to a much wider audience.
    Only 31 percent of White Americans now believe the future will be better than the past. When 69 percent of White America believes that the past was better than the future, it means that there has been a critical loss of legitimacy somewhere in the White electorate.
    The vanguard could not be more wrong about the lemming question. The people who might have been “Joe Six Packs” and “Sally Soccermoms” in the 1990s – oblivious to the future, secure in their private suburban cocoons – are certainly not feeling that way anymore.
    There has been a change.
    Alarm Bells: The White Working Class
    We know from the polling data and election returns who is losing faith in Black Run America and where they live in the United States.
    For months now, a political scientist named Ronald Brownstein who writes for National Journal has been sounding alarm bells about the White working class. David Paul Kuhn of RealClearPolitics is another who has drawn attention to this subject. We have written about Brownstein and Kuhn here in the past.
    Brownstein’s latest article is his direst warning yet:
    Still, amid all of this change, whites without a four-year college degree remain the largest demographic bloc in the workforce. College-educated whites make up about one-fifth of the adult population, while minorities account for a little under one-third. The picture is changing, but whites who have not completed college remain the backbone of many, if not most, communities and workplaces across the country.
    They are also, polls consistently tell us, the most pessimistic and alienated group in American society.
    This is another way of saying that the “taxforce” is pessimistic and alienated. We recently learned that 51.5 percent of African-Americans are employed in the United States. Those who are employed and who make the most money work in the diversity-government complex.
    Amazingly, while black employment has fallen to its lowest level in America in forty years, NPR is reporting “The End of Anger” among the African-American middle class which “anti-racists” always claim are suffering from “white privilege” and “institutional racism” and “structural racism,” but which the polls show to be the consistently most optimistic sector of the population.
    Meanwhile, the “taxforce” is paying for all the social services and is getting squeezed harder every year by the growth of the minority population which marginalizes them politically while simultaneously consuming most of the public services. These African-Americans and Hispanics have a “civil right” to the paychecks of the White working class.
    Listen to this:
    The latest measure of this discontent came in a thoughtful national survey on economic opportunity released last week by the Pew Charitable Trusts’ Economic Mobility Project. If numbers could scream, they would probably sound like the poll’s results among working-class whites.
    One question asked respondents whether they expected to be better off economically in 10 years than they are today. Two-thirds of blacks and Hispanics said yes, as did 55 percent of college-educated whites; just 44 percent of noncollege whites agreed. Asked if they were better off than their parents were at the same age, about three-fifths of college-educated whites, African-Americans, and Hispanics said they were. But blue-collar whites divided narrowly, with 52 percent saying yes and a head-turning 43 percent saying no. (The survey, conducted from March 24 through 29, surveyed 2,000 adults and has a margin of error of ±3.4 percent.)
    What makes these results especially striking is that minorities were as likely as blue-collar whites to report that they have been hurt by the recession. The actual unemployment rate is considerably higher among blacks and Hispanics than among blue-collar whites, much less college-educated whites.
    Why is the White working class so unusually pissed off while African-Americans and Hispanics are more likely to be unemployed?
    It is because African-Americans and Hispanics are buying groceries with EBT cards, getting TANF welfare checks, Energy Assistance, Section 8 housing vouchers, Medicaid, etc.
    The White working class pays for most of the things that African-Americans and Hispanics get for free like public education for their children. It also pays for the government services they receive like EBT cards and Medicaid.
    After supporting African-Americans and Hispanics via the federal government as “the invisible parent,” White taxpayers have to pay for the private school for their own children, the mortgage in the suburb to escape crime and diversity, their own groceries at Super Wal-Mart, the rent, the utilities, college tuition, etc.
    If the average single black woman has a net worth of $5 dollars, why are single black women with children becoming much more common? How do they support themselves? It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure it out.
    This really says it all:
    In the most telling result, 63 percent of African-Americans and 54 percent of Hispanics said they expected their children to exceed their standard of living. Even college-educated whites are less optimistic (only about two-fifths agree). But the noncollege whites are the gloomiest: Just one-third of them think their kids will live better than they do; an equal number think their children won’t even match their living standard. No other group is nearly that negative.
    The “taxforce” doesn’t even believe their own children will enjoy the same declining standard of living that they do now. Yet somehow 63 percent of African-Americans say their children will be better off in the future when black unemployment is at record highs.
    Does that sound strange?
    It only sounds strange if you believe that Jim Crow America still exists and that DWLs are “white supremacists” who control every institution in our society and that “racism” is what prevents African-Americans from getting ahead in our society.
    By contrast, although it is difficult to precisely quantify, the sense of being eclipsed demographically is almost certainly compounding the white working class’s fear of losing ground economically. That huge bloc of Americans increasingly feels itself left behind—and lacks faith that either government or business cares much about its plight. . . .Alarm bells should be ringing now about the social and economic trends in the battered white working class and the piercing cry of distress rising from this latest survey.
    Big Government and Big Business don’t care about the White working class. They don’t hire Beached White Males or Boomerangs anymore.
    In the Mars Challenge, we saw that Barack Hussein Obama is spending $2 billion dollars a year for the specific purpose of “strengthening” African-American, Hispanic, Asian American, and Native American institutions. He isn’t spending $1 dollar to strengthen White educational institutions.
    The Race Project
    We know from the polling data and anecdotal evidence that our suspicion that the gap between the White racialists and White people is not nearly as large as the vanguard has made it out to be.
    The gap has been closing in recent years as Black Run America has become more explicitly anti-White.
    What’s more, this polling data about changing White racial attitudes comes from national samples, which means that White people who live in certain parts of the United States must be feeling dramatically more alienated than those who live in other areas.
    If the answer to “the who question” is working class White men, the answer to “the where question” is the Old Confederacy, not the Pacific Northwest.
    In 2008, Barack Hussein Obama underperformed John Kerry among Whites in three states: Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Obama won 10 percent of the White vote in Alabama, 11 percent in Mississippi, and 14 percent in Louisiana.
    That was at the height of his popularity and before he arrived in the White House.
    Obama won 60 percent of the White vote in Oregon, 59 percent in Washington, and 36 percent in Idaho. The only states in America where more Whites voted for Barack Obama than Oregon and Washington were Hawaii and Vermont.
    There are parts of Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana where Whites vote Republican and African-Americans vote Democrat. Elections are racial headcounts. They reflect Census numbers.
    In the nineteenth century, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana were known as the “Old Southwest.” The Lower Mississippi Valley is the Achilles Heel of Black Run America. There are more disillusioned Whites living here than anywhere else in America.
    The racial unanimity in hostility to Barack Hussein Obama means that opposition to Black Run America in the Old Southwest must be drawn from all sectors of the White population and at much higher rates than we are seeing nationwide.
    Language of Rebellion
    This is why it was so easy to shed the skin of White Nationalism.
    White people in the Old Southwest are already racially conscious to a large degree. They are deeply alienated from Black Run America. There are plenty of White people in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana who never believed in Black Run America.
    There are people on the internet who claim to be pro-White, but who say that White Christians, White conservatives, and White women must be ridiculed and excluded from our ranks.
    We consider these groups our base.
    This website had gradually evolved from arguing the position that White racial consciousness must be “mainstreamed” to the position that there are already millions of White people in the American South who are alienated, embittered, and who understand race and who only need to be nudged in the right direction to rebel against the present system.
    While some pro-White intellectuals busy themselves with reading Guillaume Faye books and writing Nietzsche and Céline essays, we are crafting a “language of rebellion” (this is the great race project) for a specific people who live a specific geographic area and who we know are disaffected and receptive to an outlaw conservative message.
    We are constantly searching for the right frequency and the means to broadcast our message to this mass audience. Eventually, we will find the right message and the pathway to deliver our racial molotov cocktail to the intended target.
    We can look at the election returns in cities like Selma and Montgomery and see what White people in Alabama are already thinking about Black Run America. This is where the real opposition movement is going to be created.
    My own personal dream has always been to march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma with thousands of White people on the way to Montgomery to overthrow Black Run America. It is a comforting thought that I might actually live to see it happen.

    We are not interested in fighting with the vanguardists about obscure ideological disagreements anymore.
    There is a critical mass of angry, alienated White people in the Old Southwest and our time is best spent in highlighting the ways that Black Run America is destructive to their self interest.
    I mentioned the vanguardists here only to show that it is a flawed assumption that only a small minority of White people are capable of seeing through the lies of the present system and that everyone else in our society is a “lemming.”
    An outright majority of the White working class in America is saying in poll after poll (some of which are cited above) that it has given up on the status quo. They are not “lemmings.”
    These people are currently falling prey to self promoting hucksters like Sarah Palin and Donald Trump, but that is only because they are perceived as the only visible opposition out there.
    That could easily change in the proper historical circumstances.
    Hunter Wallace says:
    June 3, 2011 at 2:29 am
    The vanguardists need to understand that White people are not as mad or informed about racial matters as they are, but they are getting there and moving in the right direction.
    The time is coming when we will no longer considered outcasts in our society. Those who court marginalization will have a difficult time adjusting to this.
