Same Oppression, Different Name

It wasn’t so long ago when being black in America was a crime. Rich white men with fancy educations controlled the lives of virtually every minority in the country. If the white patriarchy decided you were in the way, they made a call and the next thing you knew, you were out of a job. They regularly ruined the lives of gays, Jews, women, academics, and artists whose work they deemed offensive. They didn’t merely hate visible minorities; they didn’t want them to be born in the first place. They were especially hard on race mixers, presumably because these people were responsible for sullying the “perfect white race.”

We like to pretend we live in a post-racial America, but despite having a black president, these forces of oppression still reign supreme. In fact, a brief glance at the top stories of the past couple of years shows that the exact same rich white fascists who were in control a generation or two ago are still the ones calling the shots today. The only difference is that they’re shooting from an entirely new angle.

Right now, a professor named Shannon Gibney—a lady of color—has been formally reprimanded simply for daring to speak out against the racist hegemony that has oppressed female black schoolteachers for the past 400 years. Rich white male students decided her lectures on “structural racism” were racist, and before she could beg for forgiveness, her job was on the line. Like Mao, the Powers That Be recognize that knowledge is power and you can’t control a populace until you destroy those who hold the knowledge.

Val Rust is a professor at UCLA who focuses much of his time on “ethnic issues in international perspective.” Just as his very existence would have annoyed the hegemony 100 years ago, he is seen as a pest today, so students accused him of racism and staged a sit-in hoping to get him fired. They claimed he was racist because he was strict about spelling and grammar, which are imperialist social constructs that unfairly target blacks…or something.

Naomi Schaefer Riley is an academic who specializes in education. She’s also a race mixer whose vagina has produced two nonwhite babies. This is no longer illegal, but the old guard still needs to punish her, so after she wrote an irrefutably solid article that mocked Black Studies, someone dropped a dime and her employment was terminated.

Another race mixer who was forced out of his job is John Derbyshire. John married a Chinese woman and miscegenated with her twice. When he dared to warn his mixed-race children of a world that may be hostile to them, he lost his job.

After academics and race mixers are prevented from making a living they cease to be a threat, but artists are even more dangerous because they get into your mind. Ted Rall is a progressive liberal cartoonist with radical ideas, which annoys the middle-class whites. When he recently drew a cartoon that many people said made Barack Obama look like a monkey, the head honchos at Daily Kos explained Rall was trivializing black suffering: “No excuse is acceptable for replicating that history,” they warned him, “no matter what your intent. If it happens again, your posting privileges will be suspended.”

In their eyes, the only thing worse than an uppity artist is an uppity Jew artist. Bob Dylan is currently being investigated for “incitement to hatred” after claiming Serbians and Croatians don’t get along. If he loses this battle, he will be forced to pay a fine. One is reminded of another Jew, Ezra Levant, who lost years of his life and hundreds of thousands of dollars to a similar accusation. Then there was the Jewish writer behind the HBO show Girls who was raked over the coals for daring to be flippant about “hipster racism.”

They hate gay writers, too. When Stephen Jimenez finally finished his painstakingly researched book The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths About the Murder of Matthew Shepard, they called it “Trutherism” and accused it of undermining helpful hate-crime legislation.

Though the Scarlet Letter has changed over the years, the victims are still the same. The authorities doing the flogging haven’t changed much, however. America’s first gun-control laws were created to prevent blacks from getting guns. The Nazis were in favor of gun control, obsessed with environmentalism, they hated smoking, and their boss was a vegetarian. They were your typical socialists. Before the Nazis, we had the KKK, an organization supported and enabled by Democrats.

They claim they’re for the greater good, but controlling people who don’t know what’s good for them often means killing them. Communism has piled up over 100 million bodies trying to help people. Get a few beers into the environmentalists over at the United Nations Population Fund, and they’ll tell you the best thing for the Earth would be a lot more death. One of the reasons Planned Parenthood was created was to prevent more blacks from being born.

These atheists have always wanted to play God. We used to call them racists and fought on behalf of the minorities they oppressed. Then they coopted the word and now it’s them calling us racists. Now they can destroy all the blacks, gays, race mixers, writers, and artists who stand in their way. The bad guys haven’t changed. They just use different words. Crusaders for equality pretend they’re ruining lives for the greater good, but it’s still only rich white people fucking over the vulnerable. TC mark
