The Black Insurrection of 1967 about to end by its own hand

“Wanted” Comes to Life in Detroit: The Black Insurrection of 1967 about to end by its own hand

We have forgotten what actually happened in Detroit in 1967

If you’ve ever seen the movie Wanted with Angelina Jolie, you need to check out the source material by Mark Millar. It’s a graphic novel that bares little resemblance to its big screen spawn. The story centers around a war waged by all the world’s super-villains – who joined together – against the few superheroes, and how this ingenious plan eventually overwhelmed the good guys. This “Fraternity” of villains took over the world – dividing the nations among themselves – and used advanced technology to erase every inhabitant of the earth’s memory that the heroes or villains ever existed.

Only faint, cloudy memories remain of the heroes who were trounced by evil.

The main character of the story, Wesley Gibson, is told of this by The Professor (who devised the plan of villains teaming up to defeat the heroes), and is incredulous as to how the real history of the world could be distorted:

Wesley: “I don’t understand. How come this sin’t in the history? Even there’d been one superhero, would that have been all over the news and stuff?

The Professor: “Ah, but it wasn’t enough just to beat them, Wesley. We had to strip them of their memories and make sure that even their greatest fans didn’t remember them.

“Such science might seem comical in this new world that we molded for you, but believe me when I say that reality itself can be rewritten if we desire it, boy.” (Wanted, Millar, trade paperback, p. 47)

Reality itself can rewritten.

The story of Wanted is just a graphic novel. A comic book. But in our world, history can be rewritten. Actual events can be forgotten. No story verifies this fact more than what has happened in Detroit since 1967. We are on the verge of the state of Michigan assuming control of Black-run Detroit (82 percent now; roughly 35 percent Black at the time of the riots; less than 2 percent Black in 1912), a city

The law that threatens Detroit with direct state rule may be repealed through a petition drive powered by unions and residents opposed to white control of a city that’s 82 percent black.

“It’s nothing but a takeover bill,” said Brandon Jessup, chairman of the Stand Up for Democracy coalition seeking 161,300 signatures to place the measure on the November ballot. “This is definitely a race issue. It’s affecting people of color not only in this generation but future generations.”

Detroit needs to be run by Detroiters,” Mayor Dave Bing, a black Democrat, said last week at a press conference the day before Snyder called for the review.

Councilwoman JoAnn Watson compared the city’s resistance to Rosa Parks’ refusal to move to the back of a bus, an act that began the Montgomery boycott in 1955 and a civil-rights watershed.

Councilman Kwame Kenyatta said an emergency manager would be “a master, as someone to control the plantation,” according to the Detroit Free Press.

Forgotten is that Rosa Parks was once assaulted by a Black man in Detroit, long after her exploits in Montgomery made her a household name. This occurred in 1994 (when Detroit was more than 75 percent Black) and is a fitting reminder of the true legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. 


Black-Run Detroit has failed. Liberalism didn’t fail the city; the Black leadership, elected from the electorate, failed. Black people left to their own devices when white people fled into the suburbs (and created thriving cities, some of the top school districts in the nation, and bustling economies) failed. 


The racial dynamics of Detroit – when it was considered the “Paris of the West” – was more than 70 percent white. In less than six years after Black people rioted in 1967, the city was majority Black and Coleman Young was the mayor. 


Just like in Wanted, we forget the battle that took place in Detroit in 1967. High rates of Black crime (in 1960, Black people were only 24 percent of the population of Detroit, but they accounted for 65 percent of the violent crime) were already forcing white people to flee to the suburbs. It was the Black insurrection – and the white capitulation that followed – that occurred in 1967 which has been completely forgotten about. 


Recently, I acquired the Life magazine from August 4, 1967. Just like the world of Wanted, what I read doesn’t seem real in a nation governed by the principles of Black-Run America (BRA). The cover of this magazine shows the ominous outline of two National Guardsman – guns drawn – with a fire blazing in the background. With the main caption reading “Negro Revolt: The Flames Spread,” this issue of Life seems like a glimpse into another world. 


One where the insanity of BRA was just bubbling to the surface, before its tentacles would ensnare every public and private institution in America. 


It is on p.19 of this issue that you can read the article “City at the blazing heart of a nation in disorder.” It is these words that read like something out of the world of Wanted, where the villains won and the mere existence of heroes is but a shadowy memory:

With exploding heat and violence, the flames of Negro revolt crack led across the nation, bringing federal troops into riot duty for the first time in a quarter of a century. The disorder was country-wide, but at is blazing heart was Detroit, where the racial rioting ranked as the worst in U.S history. like Newark a few days earlier, the Detroit insurrection was touched off by a minor police incident – this time a raid on a Negro speakeasy. But it quickly flared into an even more destructive and persistent pattern of looting, arson and sniping. Whole city blocks went up in smoke, setting streets shimmering in waves of heat, and bullets whined and ricocheted unpredictably through the ruins. Unable to control the chaos with police and 8,000 national guardsmen, Mayor Jerome Cavanagh and Michigan Governor George Romney finally prevailed upon President Johnson to take the extraordinary step of supplying federal troops. Paratroopers from the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions – many of them veterans of Vietnam – rolled into the continuing fray. Not since 1943, and then, too in Detroit, had U.S. forced been so employed. 

Even so, death and destruction mounted. By midweek, at least 38 persons lay dead, including a policemen and a fireman. Looters and snipers died, as well as many innocent people caught in the often random cross-fire. 

This was the Negro Revolt of 1967, and event that helped bring about Black-rule in Detroit. Under Black rule – in the past year – we have seen what Life After White People looks like. With the city on the verge of being taken over by the state of Michigan, we can only ask how did it come to this? It’s simple: the Negro Revolt that Life magazine spoke so openly about in 1967 has been forgotten, replaced with the progressive idea that Black people would be able to sustain a civilization – and city – they had no part in building, but had every part in destroying


A world where affirmative action destroyed the police, leaving the city in the hands of vigilantes in 2012. A city where the National Tuskegee Airmen Museum rests, a reminder of, something that really has nothing to do with Black people in 2012. Detroit is truly too Black for civilization, and Life magazine hinted at this back in 1967. It’s the city where Freedom Failed, and where the game has already ended (sorry Clint Eastwood). 


But we can’t even acknowledge any of the role Black people had in destroying Detroit, but must blame liberalism as the true culprit. Strange, liberalism flourishes in Pittsburgh, but that city survived the horrible decline of its steel industry


But Detroit can’t survive its Blackness. It chokes on this Blackness, but because we live in a world where we can’t acknowledge racial differences (because of that strange victory – like the one of the villains in Wanted – in 1967), the people of Detroit must drown in a sea of Black violence. Two stories from this past week illustrate the despondent reality of what Black-rule in Detroit means. One, the 43 murder of 2012, represents something truly sinister (Fight at Shower cited in slaying of 9-month-old baby, by George Hunter, Detroit News, February 25, 2012)

 A fight over a seat at a baby shower triggered the killing of a 9-month-old boy, according to the victim’s grandmother.

Delric Miller IV died Monday as he slept on the couch in his home on the 8400 block of Greenview Avenue. Police said someone fired at the house with an AK-47-type assault rifle about 4:30 a.m., leaving behind 37 shells. One of the rounds hit the baby, who was pronounced dead at Sinai-Grace Hospital.

Delric Miller IV died Monday as he slept on the couch in his home on the 8400 block of Greenview Avenue. Police said someone fired at the house with an AK-47-type assault rifle about 4:30 a.m., leaving behind 37 shells. One of the rounds hit the baby, who was pronounced dead at Sinai-Grace Hospital.

Delric’s grandmother, Cynthia Wilkins, said she believes the shooting was retaliation for a skirmish Sunday at a baby shower at Club Celebrity on Plymouth Rd. in Detroit.“The shower was overbooked, and there was an argument because there weren’t enough seats,” said Wilkins. Her daughter, Diamond Salter, attended the shower, which was thrown by a friend, Wilkins said.

“A woman got mad because she couldn’t find a seat, so she started knocking tables down, and it escalated from there,” Wilkins said. “My daughter and her friends left the club, but (a group of men and women) followed them to a gas station, and there was a fight with one of the guys who was at the shower with my daughter. Then, they followed them to the house.

“I think they came back the next day and shot up the house,” said Wilkins, who sobbed as she recounted the events. “They went to the shower to celebrate life; instead, a life was destroyed.”

The shooting has outraged both police and residents, and prompted Detroit 300, a group of community activists fed up with crime, to go door-to-door asking questions, in hopes of finding the killer or killers.

A task force consisting of the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case.“Life is not valued in Detroit. It’s a war zone here,” Wilkins said. “We need some ground troops patrolling these streets; they send them all overseas, but they need to be here.”

The death was the 43rd homicide in the city this year, up from 35 in the period last year. It’s also the second killing of a youngster in Detroit in the past month.“Again, adult behavior has brought another child in Detroit to an end,” said Police Chief Ralph Godbee.

No, adult behavior didn’t bring about the end of another child’s life in Detroit. Black behavior did. Interesting that calls for ground troops to patrol the city of Detroit – just like New Orleans, where Black violence might bring about a call for ground troops as well – are needed in the last days of Black-rule, just like the beginning of Black-rule in those dark days of Negro Rebellion back in 1967.

Those days that we have forgotten about.

Life is balance. Never forget that. In the Alpha and Omega of Black-rule of Detroit, federal troops will occupy the city.

If not, more stories like the one of an 86-year-old Black guy being assaulted by a young Black punk will persist (With Video, Passers-by ignore injured car-jacked victim, 86, crawling at Detroit gas station, by Tammy Battaglia, Detroit Free Press, February 24, 2012):

The 86-year-old World War II Air Corps veteran, knocked to the ground during a carjacking on Detroit’s west side, crawled across the gas station parking lot as people walked by.

No one stopped to help, he says. Aaron Brantley, who worked for 31 years as a welder at a Chrysler plant in Hamtramck, recalled the ordeal Friday, two days after he was robbed outside the BP gas station on West McNichols at Fairfield, just east of the University of Detroit Mercy campus.Brantley estimates that at least four customers walked past him as he struggled for help, unable to walk because his leg was broken. “I never bothered anybody, and I always try to help somebody else when I could,” he said Friday from home, his leg in a soft cast to his hip and not a tinge of bitterness in his voice.

Brantley was on his way home from Bible study at Corinthians Baptist Church in Hamtramck, where he’s a trustee, when someone hit him from behind and grabbed his keys at 10:40 a.m. Wednesday. The thief drove off in Brantley’s 2010 Chrysler 200 — bought to replace another car recently stolen.“I noticed when I was crawling to the gas station, people were walking past by me like I wasn’t there,” he said. “I said, ‘Lord, have mercy.’ I said, ‘Lord, some of them didn’t even look around, just going to get their gas.’ “

Once Brantley got inside the gas station, the shocked attendant, Haissam Jaber, 37, and other customers called for help.

“I’ve seen everything in here, but I couldn’t believe it happened at 10 o’clock in the morning,” said Jaber, who has worked at the station for 10 years. “And he actually pushed him down. It was a bad scene. He must be on drugs or something — to push an old guy like this is sad. They do anything these days.”

It took so long for an ambulance to arrive, Brantley said, that he offered cash to a stranger to take him home. The Good Samaritan refused the money and drove him anyway. The ambulance met Brantley at home and transported him to Sinai-Grace Hospital.

“I thought they ran over my leg,” he said. “I didn’t know what happened — I didn’t see him. When he had hit me and knocked me down on the ground, I went to get up and couldn’t get up. So I crawled into that filling station there.”

A few hours after the carjacking, a man found Brantley’s name and phone number in his Bible, still on the car’s front seat, and called him. The car had been abandoned on the city’s east side, the wheels and radio missing.

Detroit police spokeswoman Sgt. Eren Stephens said no one has been arrested, and the case is under investigation.

“Whenever a member of our community — but especially a senior citizen — becomes a victim of crime, it is very upsetting and disturbing,” she said, requesting anyone with information to call police or Crime Stoppers.

This is the legacy of the Negro Revolt that Life magazine documented in 1967. White people fled Black crime – just as they do in every major metropolis in America – but because of the high concentration of Black people from the Great Migration (the most disastrous migratory movement in America, the complete reverse of Manifest Destiny), it quickly became the Black capital of America.

Now, with its school system perhaps the worst in the Western world (and already taken over by the state of Michigan); the lowest property value imaginable in America; and crumbling; the most unsafe streets in America, with violence and crime not even seen in war-torn areas; neglected buildings built by white people and burnt down by Black people during “Devil’s Night” each year, Detroit is truly the best representation of what happens when Black people take control.

It is in that same Life issue from seemingly another world that an article, “On guard, specter of backlash” is printed on p. 24:

Of all the cities engulfed by negro violence, Detroit seemed one of the least likely candidates. Federal officials considered Detroit’s anti-poverty program a model: up to last week it has poured more than $250 million into urban renewal and projects for the poor. Negroes had also attained a share of the political power. Detroit is the only city in the U.S. that has two Negro congressmen, and its young, progressive mayor, Jerry Cavanagh, had been popular with the Negroes. Unlike Newark and Watts, Detroit had no single ghetto (PK NOTE: no all of Detroit is a ghetto).


But beneath the surface, the city simmered. Few of the statistics meant much to the Negroes who inhabited the eight-block area of 12th Street where the rioting erupted. The unemployment rate there was still 11%, and even higher among Negro youth. The area was the most densely populated in the city. Only 17% of the residents owned their own homes- compared with 60% in the entire city. A recent survey indicated that 91% feared being robbed and 93% wanted to move out. Even though economic conditions had improved, it served simply to raise Negro expectation – and the inevitable frustration when those hopes were not quickly satisfied. In the carnival-like revel of looting, Negroes took the luxuries they felt had been denied them – expensive liquor, color TV sets and hi-fi phonographs. “It looked like a singing commercial for all the things they had seen on television, says a Detroit sociologist. 

The rioting demonstrated the power of the discontented to disrupt and paralyze any city and the difficulty of reimposing law and order. It also raised the menacing prospect of white backlash. Whites already have started a run on gun shops and there was a danger that any community confronted by racial violence might be split into armed camps, white vs. Negro. If this occurs, an important lesson of the violence will be obscured. That lesson, says a Detroit psychologist, is “Learn, whitey, learn.”

There was no white backlash. Whites left Detroit; Black people took over. Now, Detroit is one of the most unsafe cities in the world, because of the Black population present there.

We saw violence explode across the nation – Black violence – in the summer of 2011. The lessons that should be learned come directly from the Negro Revolt that Life magazine discussed openly in its August 4th, 1967 issue.

Just like in Wanted, the bad guys have won and remade the world in their image. We have forgotten the lessons of the past, and for this reason, we can’t confront the reason that life is held in such low esteem in Detroit.

We can’t even remember what the past looked like, because the world of BRA has clouded it in a shroud of white racism, bigotry, discrimination, and ultimately, white supremacy.

Looking at what happened in Detroit in the summer of 1967, there’s a reason all of those things existed.

Detroit’s collapse is near. The city is forced to sell of assets to make payroll. We must remember that it was a Negro Revolt – as Life told us – that made this all possible.

It wasn’t white privilege that killed the 9-month-old in Detroit; it wasn’t white privilege that refused to help an 86-year-old carjacked Black man in Detroit; it was a city where Black privilege has reached its startling conclusion. It’s a city where an “Africa Town” was almost mandated by tax dollars, because of the shocking lack of Black entrepreneurship in a city where Black people are 82 percent of the population.

It’s a city that we must understand is a reminder of what happens when Black people are left to their own devices.

The legacy of the Black insurrection of 1967 is seen in the tragic end of the nine-month-old; it’s seen in the indifference to an 86-year-old Black veteran being ignored as he crawled for help after being car-jacked.

If we can’t remember this, there is no use trying to save America.

I Drink Your Milkshake: Rising Gas Prices and the End of Escaping the Black Undertow

I drink your milkshake: The end of cheap gas means the end of Black-Run America (BRA)

So much to do, so little time to do it. Lately, due to working on finishing three books (and researching Detroit’s history for the definitive story on the impending collapse of Black-rule in that city as well) and shoring up the details of a Fair Campaign that *could* have major ramifications, I feel like SBPDL has suffered. Traffic has never been higher, but too many stories are being neglected.

I’m working on four articles for VDare, but wanted to pose this question to all SBPDL readers: Gas prices are rising (as the purchasing power of the dollar declines, plus the pernicious influence of inflation and the increased demand for oil from “developing” nations) and will reach levels that will negatively impact American families budgets.

Mind you, those budgets are now reliant on the Dollar Store Economy to help stretch the buying power of the dollar farther and farther:

Over the past few years, arguably no retail faction has experienced as much success as dollar stores. Dollar General has just about doubled its number of locations in the past decade. There are now more than 9,800 Dollar General stores nationwide, making it the country’s largest retailer by location count.Dollar Tree opened its 4,000th store in 2010, after hitting the 3,000 mark four years ago. Family Dollar, meanwhile, has about 7,000 locations in North America, and expects to add 450 to 500 more this fiscal year.
According to one study, as of mid-2011, the four main dollar stores (those named above, as well as 99¢ Only) outnumbered major drugstore chains in the U.S., 21,500 to 19,700.
The study, from research firm Colliers International, indicates that dollar stores have gone mainstream and become more acceptable, even in relatively upscale shopping areas.

Nothing showcases the glory of open-border madness, free trade policies wiping out wealth creating manufacturing jobs, a libertarian-friendly service economy, and collapsing majority Black inner-cities like the dollar store economy. It should be noted that 10 years ago I found a copy of The Bell Curve at a Dollar Store (walked in to buy toilet paper to roll a friend’s house– think economically when you plan to TP a house!), which is still the best dollar I’ve ever spent. 


On this same line of thinking, many economists, sociologists, and apologists blame the decline of Detroit under the  Actual Black Run America (ABRA) government on the highway system that enabled white flight to cheap land around the city. Whitopia’s – those temporary “Drifter Colonies” – instantly sprung up around not only Detroit, but major cities throughout America, when cheap gas made it possible for families to move away from the crime and societal confusion of densely populated metropolises and live in a beautiful home with the white picket fence. 


Gas prices have fluctuated during the exodus of white people from major cities to the suburbs, but father’s (and increasingly mother’s) have continued to spend upwards to two hours each day (10 hours a week, forty hours a month, 480 hours a year – the equivalent of 20 full days) just to avoid living in cities with too many Black people. 


This is why we have stated the greatest ecological threat is not some fatuous notion of man-made global warming, but the continued misapplication of resources to escape the Black Undertow (which drives down property value, drives away businesses, increases crime and the need for greater law enforcement budgets, stresses entitlement programs, and overwhelms a school system with discipline problems and poor academic performances) enhances the carbon footprint of white American’s trying to raise a family in an environment that seeks to replicate 1950s America. 


I came across this fantastic site that shows historic gas prices over the past six years, and it offers form fields where you can customize your search for hundreds of cities in the United  States.


We live in the end of a historic era; few even dare contemplate what this means for the future policy positions, but I believe historians will look back on the past sixty years of American history and point to the availability of cheap gas as one of the key variables as to why we delayed addressing the real reasons racial inequalities persist in America. White Americans could escape into the suburbs — even those that would inevitably be overwhelmed with Climate Change — and raise families far removed from the negative influences of Black America. 



Just look at the strange geographic look of a Metro Atlanta, where the suburbs jettison out in every direction from the City too Busy to Hate. The same can be said for any major metropolitan city in America that has a large Black population.

Gas prices are rising at a record pace. Hardworking American families are seeing more and more of their after-tax income and budget going to pay to fill up their car. This will only get worse as the year moves on and gas prices rise higher.

The end of escaping Black-Run America (BRA) is upon us. It’s no longer economically viable.

We at SBPDL believe this is a good thing. This is why the Fair Campaign (Exist) which will be slowly unveiled over the coming weeks is so important.

The end of abandoning city after city to the future fury of ABRA is now. The end of escaping into suburban America and the abandonment of ‘Manifest Destiny’ for a ‘Black-Run Destiny’ is now.

Tomorrow, we’ll discuss why the concept of a “Green City” can’t transpire unless the Black population is below five percent. We’ll introduce the concept of what an actual “Green Job” represents. And soon, we’ll discuss what “Mini-Sweden’s” are, and how they are popping up all across America.

On life

We journey through life, each living out our lives, imparting as much meaning on to them as we possibly can, usually with little success. The people we meet, the times we cherish with them, and the hours spent wondering about our futures, where we are going, what we will do. We plan for events and things we wish to do with our time here, all the while pondering our purpose in life, each of us making life’s journey, never really understanding our true purpose. In moments of clarity we glimpse the void, life’s end, even at times we may long for release from the trials and tribulations which surround us on all fronts, but the urge for self preservation pushes us forward, into the daily grind, the pointless meaningless existence.

Some of us fill the void with thoughts of loved ones, others fill it with drink, some try the hedonistic life, all left without achieving their intended goal. What is it that each of us seek, this goal we reach for with all our might and yet always seems just beyond our grasp. I have heard that religion is the answer, the self delusions of priests and pastors, calming their flock of sheep before the slaughter. What sense of purpose do we seek, family? Friends? Work? Education? Pay and just compensation for time worked? Do any of these things matter? If one found success in just one, or all, would they find what they are reaching for? Some In old age, finally become content with life’s end, the end of the road, some cling to life, other willingly allow deaths sweet release to overcome them, passing into the eternal slumber.

We are born, we grow up, we live our lives, we grow old, and we die. It is the way of every man and women. Some burn bright and life short lives, others grow old and gray, yet even in this we call it life. Where is the purpose? Where is the honor? Where is the mark for others to strive towards? There is no honor in old age and death. No honor in the slow crippling effects of terminal illnesses. The short lives did not make their mark, they were unready, barely out of the nest. But this is the fate of many. To be born, short lived, and dead before anyone knew their name. To be born into death is the greatest of mysteries, for what purpose does this bring, but sorrow and torment, the questions and thoughts of what could have been. Lives stolen by our so called Creator.

This begs the question of why. Why do we persist, out of habit? What makes you dear reader believe that you should live, what is it that drives you? What do you think you will accomplish that will give you purpose? What is your reason for being? You live for your children? And what of them? Will their breath cease when you have passed or will life make arrangements for them as well? One cannot understand life until you have reached the end, looked over into the void beyond, and smiled. Knowing that this is the resting place for all who make the journey. What purpose is life, then to reach it’s natural conclusion, death. The purpose of life is to die, death gives meaning to any otherwise unfulfilled life. Without an ending, the story does not matter. In happily ever after, life’s end is mandated for every prince and princess.

I will say, that it is how we lived our lives that mattered. Did we give everything we could possible? Did we live life to the fullest extent possible? Did we push ourselves until we could not push further? Did we find true unconditional love? Happiness and acceptance by those whom we truly love and care for. Did you ever give up on a dream, and pass up the chance to really live life, to be better then we are. Life is short for many, why honor their memory with failure. When we find true love, why not fight for it no matter the consequences. When we discover who we are, accept this, and allow other to accept who you are, or let them part company.

The void speaks to us, it says hello my dear friend are you ready yet? It’s up to each of us stand for who we are, for who and what we love, fight for it, die for it, and give our lives meaning and purpose in death. Any other way would be life without honor.

Why we will win

Why we will win

… against the pathological left, anyway.

I have spent a few days discussing golf and football with a dozen or so folk at the Telegraph online.  They were hardly committed sports fans, unless you count screaming “racist” at every slightly “incorrect” white man a sport.  Perhaps they do.

They are certainly not very sporting themselves.  They never answer questions.  With the more capable anti-racists who gather at British Democracy Forum to plague BNP members I always felt that the wriggling was at least partly strategic.  But now I think the lot of them are probably constitutionally incapable of answering anything.  The answers just aren’t there.

The same feeling that the multiracialist ideology can’t answer the questions of the present-day runs through this article in the Guardian today:

Far right on rise in Europe, says report

Study by Demos thinktank reveals thousands of self-declared followers of hardline nationalist parties and groups

The far right is on the rise across Europe as a new generation of young, web-based supporters embrace hardline nationalist and anti-immigrant groups, a study has revealed ahead of a meeting of politicians and academics in Brussels to examine the phenomenon.

Research by the British thinktank Demos for the first time examines attitudes among supporters of the far right online. Using advertisements on Facebook group pages, they persuaded more than 10,000 followers of 14 parties and street organisations in 11 countries to fill in detailed questionnaires.

The study reveals a continent-wide spread of hardline nationalist sentiment among the young, mainly men. Deeply cynical about their own governments and the EU, their generalised fear about the future is focused on cultural identity, with immigration – particularly a perceived spread of Islamic influence – a concern. …

The rest of the article is worth a browse.  The original Demos report, which is less lurid in tone than the article above, is here.

The Guardian piece mentions an “expert on the politics of racism in Europe” called Gavan Titley.  He’s recently published a book with a Jewish anti-racist academic called Alana Lentin.  It is titled The Crisis of Multiculturalism, and again there is the sense that the world is asking new questions and answers are just not there any more.

Not only the answers.  The very utopianism which has sustained the radical left over the last half-century is corroding under the acid of Islam’s cultural intransigency.  New facts left intellectualism cannot accept, and new antagonisms it cannot resolve are rising.

To demonstrate the left’s growing intellectual sclerosis before these, here is the sole review for Lentin and Titley’s book from its page at Amazon.

Incomprehensible – The authors may have something worthwhile to say but they’re not about to let you in on their secret

29 Sep 2011

I think I might agree with what the authors of this book have to say about multiculturalism. I even think that what they think might be a worthwhile subject for a book. But there’s no way of knowing one way or the other.

The authors do not seem to realise that a book, first and foremost, must be understood – that there is no point spouting some post-modernist jibberish if you actually have something to say. Unfortunately, even if the authors do have anything to say, I think the reader of a book like this is entitled to assume the worst.

If this is what passes for sociology these days (or academia, at least – there are a great many quotes from ‘the field’ which are equally incomprehensible) it’s a depressing state of affairs.

In the 1990s, Alan Sokal famously had a spoof essay published in the self-regarding, post-modernist literary journal Social Text. The editors inhabited a world which even they did not understand, where language had become utterly detached from meaning and in which reputation with one’s peers rested solely on conjuring up, through nonsensical combinations of clever-looking words, an imagined higher plane of understanding which did not actually exist. The reality is that if a sentence doesn’t appear to make sense, that is a bad thing, not a good thing.

So: here’s how this book begins:

“Few people – particularly those given to regarding actually existing practices of state multiculturalism as a form of liberal nationalism, or overdetermining culturalism, or micro-colonialism, or political containment – can have guessed at the depths of its transformative power”.

It’s a lot of long words, but at least you can tell what they’re getting at (even though it seems to me that the “it” in this sentence is never defined). Anyway, it’s only downhill from there.

This, from the 3rd page, is typical:

“If the humanitarian and civilizing discourses of the war on terror are undergirded by a depoliticizing extraction of conflict ‘from the dense lattice of geopolitical and political-economic considerations to be depicted as stark morality tales’, the conventional accounting of multicultural collapse rehearses stark new certainties”.

Ok, so maybe it’s me. I get the vague idea there might be a point behind this sentence but if I want a puzzle, I can do a crossword or something. I’d actually rather this book told me something about “the crises of multiculturalism”, which is why I bought it.

Every page is the same – it’s like some mysterious faith-based exercise in reading. Imagine what you want them to be saying and then, if you can imagine the words do say what you want them to be saying, then yes, take it that they are saying that.
Every fifth sentence or so is straightforward. Actually, now I’m looking for one… and I really can’t find one … anywhere!

“Integral to this neo-patriotism is the liberal discourse of inclusionary exclusion that has suffused European political cultures, providing malleable possibilities for the ongoing cultural labour of imagined communities”. That’s about as good as it gets – mainly because it’s one of the few sentences in the book that doesn’t include the word ‘polysemy’, but also because at least a phrase like ‘inclusionary exclusion’ is amusing.

Anyway, page 3 is, unfortunately, as far as I got. Thanks for the memories Lentin and Titley. And to think – I reckon I’m one of the sympathetic ones.

Do Amazon do returns for this kind of thing?

Indeed, can the entire canon of left intellectualism, which has shaped the social debate since Adorno and Marcuse washed up in America, be forgotten, its relevance over, its energy sapped, its function superceded by history, and a history of race at that?

The New Eternal City

City in the image of Man. The Omega God.

A synthesis of religion, arcology, racial unity, and our common Imperian destiny.

The New City our religion, god manifested in matter, the son-God of Europid man.

A city of cities, a testament to the glory of our people and the creative gift bestowed upon our race by our great creator. The fulfillment of our Earthly divine purpose, the great urban effect, our god manifested in structural and spiritual form.

The Omega Seed:

The function of arcology is to facilitate the breakthrough of the racial spiritual essence to new levels of individuality and community, by unifying the people of europa in a common sense of purpose and fulfillment.

The structure itself is matter becoming spirit. Matter is therefore, not to be cast aside, but spiritualized, to inspire our race to new levels of greatness, to enshrine a cosmic vision and fulfill the unification of physicality, time, and space, manifested in pure spirit of our people through arcology.

We seek a new community, not centered around consumption, indifference, and alienation, but individual fulfillment. Such individual fulfillment would be in a community not only of other human beings, but our kinsmen, also of the multitude of living forms in which the fulfillment of each supported the fulfillment of all others. Out society is to be transformed, transcended, life would have meaning, purpose, we would be as one people. The barrier between life and death would find new externalized meaning, community life would elevate the individual to untold heights, only those who are ready to lose their lives find them. Honor and courage to excel to new levels of organization and complexity.

The Spirit:

The warrior spirit must pervade the vanguard of our kinsmen, the selfish reality we currently face cannot be overcome through internal laws or self help books, but thorough pain and suffering. Each of us will be called upon and stand to be counted, stand on our own two feet to wage war against the darkness, or fall to our knees and die as cowards. Either choice is a victory for our racial brethren, for great revolutions require great sacrifice. A true spiritual awakening, blessed by the sacrifice of the weak, arrogant and ignorant. A down payment of blood for our transcendence into the spiritual realm.

The racial spirit requires renewal, a cycle of highs and lows, ever present, a continuous renewal and decay, of rebirth and death, life transcended into a new beginning. To cling to the security of what one is and has and to seek to satisfy the desires that express that stage and mode of being leads to stagnation and decay, as we are now witnessing in the terminal stage of our civilization. Life and vigor come from unforeseen novelty achieved by the urban effect and community of arcology. The grand appeal to our inner eye, our accomplishment and a temple to our race, a home for the common man of Europa.

Our Destiny:

Even now as we face oblivion, an absolute destruction of our soul, we stand at the edge of rebirth or eternal damnation, the vision presents itself, the blinding light, the roar of the flames, the chasm below burns hot, its flames lick at our feet, burning away our flesh, the chosen few walk into the flames unafraid of what lays beyond its borders. Brothers i say we must embrace the eternal cleansing fire of hell if we are to be reborn as pure souls, the universe demands it. What purity can be gained from the present order? None. All are guilt as charged, face the collapse of our great cities, our nations, the resulting storm of death and destruction, face it with peace and calm as in the eye of the storm passes over your body, stand and know who you are, embrace your own souls, deny not your own inner beings and walk new paths of internal peace, content with life eternal, free of materialist thought and self grandiose. Face down our enemies with balance, the eternal balance of inner peace and outwardly force, a recognition of the external thinking of our collective destiny, leave the unclean to their fates, embrace your destiny as demigods. Our human venture has just begun, unity awaits us in our time to come.

The final years of the American experiment.

Be ready our time is coming!

The final years of the Amerikan experiment.

Demographics means something, heritage, culture, race, all mean something in the greater history of humanity. Any nation that ignores these universal principles, walks the path of self destruction.  The decade to follow we will see the end of the Amerikan empire, the fall of the Western world into the progressive socialist chaos, the end of an age. Western liberal democracies will come to an end, and something new will be born in its place.

Race war, class war, anti-government riots –you name it. All of it is headed our way. The sentiment across the nation, as Michael Bloomberg suggested in a recent interview, is that Americans know something is wrong in this country. For every individual and the groups with which they affiliate it’s different. For the black panthers it’s racism and poverty. For unions it’s benefit cuts, wage cuts and free market solutions. For Tea Party members it’s an intrusive and socialist government. The majority of America is not happy and they’ve lost hope, because regardless of what group you identify with, what color you are or what way you lean politically, you’re losing jobs, falling behind on essential bills, having difficulty putting food on the table and are constantly being accosted by government on all levels. When the riots start –and they will –the core motivators for individuals who hit the streets will be similar. Where the difference will arise is who each person or group will blame. Those elites in the upper echelons of our command and control apparatus thrive on hate, confusion and panic, and they will use our own ignorance against us. When we discuss the coming civil disobedience and unrest in America, we may find ourselves visualizing protests where the people join together to oust a tyrannical government. Be forewarned. This is not the most likely outcome –at least not at the outset. With so many different ideologies in this country, every one of us interprets the problems and directs blame a different way. These differences will be used against us; they’ll be used to turn us against each other. As you watch the following short speech from Black Panther National Chairman Malik Shabazz, consider that, while you may disagree with his solutions to the problems or where he places some of the blame, his core message is very similar to those of others that are fed up with what’s going on in this country.

New Black Panthers:

“Our message to the State Department, our message to the CIA, our message to Homeland Security, our message to the government today, is that your enemy is not our enemy. Your enemy in Afghanistan, your enemy in Iran, your enemy that you are bombing in Libya today –those are not our enemies. Our enemies are right here in the United States of America. Our battle is not against Ghaddafi. Our battle is against police brutality right here at home. Our battle is against budget cuts right here at home… … A message to the President, Barack Hussein Obama. We elected you. But we did not elect you to bomb your homeland. We did not elect you to bomb Africa. We are pleading with you Mr. Obama. You cannot make a compromise with the devil. The bible says resist the devil, and the devil shall flee from you. You can’t cut a deal with Satan, Mr. Obama. You got to stand up for God… … We have to fight. Gird up your loins college students. Gird up your loins young black man and young black woman, for the hour of war is at hand.”

Combine that statement with this one from the Chicano nationalist moments:

Chicano race organizations Calls for Race war?

Miguel Perez says he is the current president of Chicanos Unidos Arizona and an active member of La Raza. He says he also served as the vice president of MECHA in Fullerton California.

La Raza, or NCLA, is a militant Latino group that Obama is funding with American tax dollars. MECHA is a nationwide Latino student organization. MECHA explicitly calls for the creation of Atzlan, a new Chicano/Latino nation, in what is now the Southwest United States.

Perez is using Examiner.com to call for Latinos in the Southwest to arm themselves for race war. Perez tells his readers Latino groups believe they have enough people in states such as California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas to successfully wage a war on the United States. 

Who’s side will you be on?

Perez is hyping a call to arms by a fellow Chicano militant…

Phoenix-based Nuestros Reconquistos claims that there will be a war very similar to the Civil War fought in the next five years. “La Raza and MEChA have already talked to Latinos and Phoenix and explained that Latinos need to arm themselves for war,” says Nuestros Reconquistos President Manuel Longoria.

Cecilia Maldonado of Chicanos Unidos Arizona isn’t hoping for any sort of war, but believes it may be unavoidable. “For generations, our people have prepared us to take back the lands of the Southwest that were stolen from our Mexican ancestors. Because of the bad economy and many racist laws, Latinos will be forced to fight sooner than later,” says Mrs. Maldonado.

Perez is listed as the “civil rights” writer for the Phoenix area on examiner.com. He recently praised Obama for issuing a unilateral amnesty for illegal aliens by ordering law enforcement to cease deportations.

Miguel Perez, current president of Chicanos Unidos Arizona and an active member of La Raza, also served as the vice president of the Latino civil rights organization MECHA in Fullerton California. He is the son of two Mexican immigrants. Perez plans to become a lawyer in order to protect the rights of Latinos. You can reach Perez at mperezlaraza1985@gmail.com.

Don’t kid yourselves, this guy and MANY MANY of his fellow travelers are quite serious… dead serious in fact. They already have the numbers in many communities and will be able to easily overrun most adjacent communities for the simple fact that most people think it can’t or won’t happen. Come on, think about it, the majority of Americans believe that they are just here to bus our tables and cut our grass… they’re just good hard working decent people who only want a better life for themselves and their families… and most importantly, they’re no threat. That is what ALL media outlets and political/community leaders have been telling the people for years now.

Maybe in some states something like this might only last a week, but in states such as CA, AZ, & N.M. it would be devastating and they could easily gain control of large portions of the state. Look at the devastation that a relatively small number of drug gang members have wrought on whole cities just south of the border…and they’re killing their own people there! These guys basically hate white people, do you think for even a moment that they would have a problem with killing entire neighborhoods just to get their point across?

Go ahead and laugh this guy off and treat what he is saying as a joke, but do so at your own peril, Arizonians and seriously fear what I believe is coming.

The black and brown people want to defend their own people from aggression they believe whites will inflict upon them for the destruction of the Amerikcan nation, they understand that they are the cause of most of our problems, they know that they deserve nothing less then genocide for their racial crimes against the white race, and they are correct. But to believe that they would be able to hold on to any territory they steal from white Americans is foolish.  Let them have los Angels, atlanta, and other non white cities, a cluster of thermal nuclear bombs detonated in those cities, will make it clear we mean business. The challenge for we the vanguard will be to convince our racial comrades, that in a civil war we must use chemical, biological, nuclear, and concentration camps against our racial enemies.

They brought this upon themselves, they started this war by invading our communities, weakening our civilization, we will finish it. I support the nuclear option in the coming civil war, make it clear to all whites, they must as well.

“I firmly believe that race riots are on the way,” Beck told listeners of his radio show. ”They are being encouraged…[the Obama administration] will take this country down. If it looks like they are losing, the uber left, they will take it down. If I can’t have it, no one will.”

The Essentials of the European New Right

The Essentials of the European New Right

It was my discovery of the European New Right that finally convinced me that one could be both a serious intellectual and a political rightist. My initiation came when I discovered Alain De Benoist’s and Charles Champetier’s manifesto for the French New Right eleven years ago. I had never seen rightist ideas presented in such a way before and I knew I had come upon something powerful. Previously, I had been more or less a left-wing Chomskyite. I had long found the left dissatisfying, particularly its victimological ressentiment and its PC bluenoses. Yet, when I looked at the bulk of the American right and saw the jingoist flag-wavers, Bible-bangers, Israel-firsters, plutocratic apologists, conspiracists, and knee-jerk militarists, I would wonder why would anyone could possibly want to be associated with that, for God’s sake? Murray Rothbard’s championing of the legacy of the “Old Right” notwithstanding, I considered the right to be an intellectual wasteland. Fortunately, the European New Right rescued me from such a narrow perception. It was from the European New Right that I learned one could be a progressive without being an egalitarian, a conservative without succumbing to vulgar economism, and a traditionalist without being a yahoo.

A major problem with bringing ENR ideas to North American audiences has been the fact that much of the scholarship produced by ENR writers has yet to be translated into English. For instance, De Benoist is the leading intellectual of the ENR and one of its founding fathers, yet only only two of De Benoist’s dozens of books, On Being a Pagan and The Problem of Democracy, have undergone an English translation and the latter appeared in English only this year thanks to Arktos Publishing. Two original English works surveying ENR thought have also appeared. One of these is by Tomislav Sunic and the other is by Michael O’Meara. If you are a college student and you want to shock and offend your politically correct professors and peers, then the distribution of copies of these works on campuses would certainly be an easy way to do so.

Because of the efforts of Arktos, more and more works of the ENR are gradually being made available in English as well as older works originally written by long-forgotten conservative revolutionary figures of the interwar era. Arktos also makes available works by leftist thinkers offering genuine insight and other writers whose ideas fall way outside the paradigm of what passes for “the right” within the context of U.S. style “conservatism.” Suffice to say we will not be seeing any of the plutocrat-funded and neocon-managed publishing houses of America’s “conservative movement” issuing the works of Lothrop Stoddard, Antonio Gramsci, Georges Sorel, Carl Schmitt, Michael Cremo, Andrew Fraser, or Pentti Linkola. Arktos has also issued an English version of Ernst von Salomon’s It Cannot Be Stormed. Salomon was a conservative revolutionary author whose success continued well into the post-WW2 period and earned the denunciation of TIME magazine in the process. I’m still waiting for English translations of Ernst Junger’s Der Arbeiter and of the works of Ernst Niekisch (hint, hint).

Several contemporary works by leading ENR writers, such as De Benoist, Sunic, and Guillame Faye have been given extensive review on Brett Stevens’ website. (See here, here, and here.) Sunic’s Against Democracy and Equality is particularly helpful not only as an introduction to ENR ideas on a more abstract level, but as a source of critical insights that shed extensive light on the realities behind some of the more important political and cultural phenomena of our time. As Stevens observes in his review of Sunic:

Liberalism dehumanizes its adversaries. According to Carl Schmitt as channeled through Sunic, the left abhors war — so it phrases every political action as a police action. The bad guys become inhuman because they are immoral, not nice, not egalitarian, etc. and thus can be exterminated not in a war but in the right-thinking people detaining or removing the bad ones.

De Benoist’s The Problem of Democracy subjects the most sacred of all modern pieties, the ideal of liberal mass democracy, to rigorous and unrelenting criticism. The only other contemporary work that I am aware of that offers such a thoroughgoing assault on modern democracy is Hans Hermann Hoppe’s Democracy: The God That Failed. I gave Hoppe’s work an extensive review when it first came out ten years ago. The twentieth century’s two leading critics of modern liberal democracy, with its tendencies toward mob rule, were arguably Carl Schmitt and Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn. Schmitt attacked liberal democracy from the perspective of a traditional conservative in the mode of Hobbes or Burke, while Kuehnelt-Leddihn offered a critique rooted in a synthesis of Catholic traditionalism and a monarchist variation of classical liberalism reminiscent of Lord Acton.

Hoppe’s work is clearly influenced by and somewhat derivative of Kuehnelt-Leddihn, and employs arguments one might expect a conservative Catholic and liberal monarchist to make. De Benoist’s observations on democracy more closely resemble and are influenced by those of Schmitt. While Hoppe and Kuehnelt-Leddihn defended classical eighteenth and nineteenth century liberalism against modern egalitarian democracy and its social democratic manifestation, De Benoist like Schmitt before him sees liberalism as the root of the problem. De Benoist offers not classical liberalism but classical democracy as conceived of by the Greeks as the answer to the “problem of democray” in its modern form. Whereas Hoppe postulates the concept of a society ordered completely on the basis of private property as the alternative to modern democratic institutions, De Benoist offers suggestions that at times resemble the notions of “participatory democracy” or “direct democracy” advanced by certain strands of the Left. These contrasts should make for interesting dialogue and debate on the alternative right.

Guillame Faye’s Why We Fight differs from much of the literature of the ENR in that while Faye incorporates the essence of the broader New Right philosophy into his analysis, he also demonstrates a greater concern for on-the-ground practical politics, strategic formulations, and particular policy prescriptions in a way that is atypical of ENR thinkers with their general focus on arcane theoretical abstractions, historical interpretations, or “metapolitics.” Faye’s geopolitical outlook in some ways resembles a melding of the “Eurasianist” idea advanced by Alexander Dugin and the anti-Islamism of Western European euronationalism. This puts Faye at odds with other strands of the ENR which leans towards at least a tactical solidarity with the Third World and regards Islam as a potential traditionalist ally against globalization and Americanization.

I am inclined to regard Faye’s view as appropriate for Europeans and the latter view as more relevant to North Americans. Islam is geographically far removed from North America, and poses no immediate demographic threat. Islamic terrorism directed towards the United States and its allies is for the most part the inevitable “blowback” generated by U.S. foreign policy or, more specifically, the exercise of Zionist influence (whether Jewish or Christian) over American foreign policy in the Middle East. An alliance with Russia against both Americanization and Islamication may serve the interests of Europeans, but America would be best served by a simple renunciation of globalism and a return to old-fashioned isolationism. Indeed, domestic U.S. Muslims may well be valuable allies against domestic Zionism.

The European New Right clearly has much to offer to ordinary conservatives looking for ideas of infinitely greater substance than what is typically found on talk radio, FOX News, or the subcultures of American right-wing populsim. But the philosophy of the ENR might well prove to be the bridge that also helps many disaffected leftists to eventually find their way to the alternative right. The thinkers of the ENR have developed a critique of globalization, imperialism, and Americanization every bit as thorough and radical as that offered by neo-Marxists like Immanuel Wallerstein, indeed even more so. Likewise, the ENR possesses a critique of consumerism, recognition of ecological issues, anticlericalism and critique Christianity that avoids the shrill bigotry of the “new atheists” that at times resembles but is more substantive than that offered by the Left. The ENR emphasis on the sovereignty and self-preservation of all peoples might even appeal to non-white nationalist, separatist, or autonomist movements.

Writers of the ENR have also advanced an intelligent and sincere but measured social and cultural conservatism that lacks the “homosexual-atheist-abortionist-under-every-bed” hysteria of the American right-wing. ENR thought upholds masculine and feminine identities without sinking into crass misogyny, and De Benoist has even controversially called for solidarity with Third World nationalism against US imperialism in a way that resembles a rightist version of Chomsky, and advocated a federated European “empire” of autonomous ethnic, cultural, and national identities that is reminiscient of the Holy Roman Empire (which, as Voltaire said, was neither holy, nor Roman, nor an empire). Meanwhile, the ENR-sympathetic Telos journal has postulated a critique of the modern liberal-managerial “new class” that greatly resembles Bakunin’s early critique of Marxism.

If we are going to build a rightist opposition in North America that is worthy of the legacy of Nietzsche, Pareto, Schmitt, Mencken, Ortega, and Junger, and is not merely a movement of useful idiots for the neoconservatives, military-industrial complex, and right-wing of the U.S. ruling class as so-called “movement conservatism” often is, then it would appear that the ideas of the European New Right are thus far the best thing going.
