VDare is Nativist, which seems ironic to me considering the fact that its run by a Limey immigrant, and it very obviously relishes indulging in the sort of divisive rhetoric characteristic of less savory elements of the Alt-Right. But… we are living in a time when only the likes of John Derbyshire has guts enough to speak the obvious truth out loud.
Last night Tucker Carlson did a segment on looting in the flooded city of Houston; or rather, on the outraged reaction to ABC journalist Tom Llamas, who had calmly and factually reported the looting.
â€œWhat about our society has changed so much that noting that youâ€™re watching [the looting] is somehow a thoughtcrime?â€ asked Carlson. …
The segment was decorated with video clips showing the actual looting. So far as I could tell, the looters were all black.
Yet this did not come up. In a 4m37s segment, the word â€œblackâ€ did not occur. Nor did any of the common euphemisms for â€œblackâ€ or â€œblacks.â€
Why not? Because, as the late Larry Auster told us, blacks are sacred objects in our state religion. Criticism of them is received as a species of blasphemy.
As I watched these two talking heads blathering on about â€œnihilismâ€ and â€œthe destruction of objective values,â€ I kept hearing, in my mindâ€™s ear, the voice of my old South African colleague cutting through the baloney: â€œItâ€™s the blecks, dear fellow, itâ€™s the blecks.â€ That was, in fact, the answer to all the questions they were chewing over so earnestly.
Itâ€™s a bit depressing to see that even Tucker Carlson, one of the more fearless of our heterodox commentators, believes he has to cleave to convention on this. …
So hereâ€™s my question: When a person inside the state religion observes the orthodoxies like this, is he at all aware how deeply weird it looks to us outside?
If you cannot bring yourself to mention, perhaps even to think, obvious true facts, then the world you are living in is to some degree a make-believe world, and you yourself are, to that same degree, slightly nuts.
