A Poster Child for Psychological Projection(Statist warns of possible race war)

Are right-wing gun owners aching to start a race war?

The Daily Caller brings us a story today about a Ivory Tower leftist philosophy professor at the City University of New York who has warned her fellow leftists that yes, those crazy, right-wing white folks with guns may just start a race war against Latinos as a result of President Barack Hussein “Santa Claus” Obama’s re-election.

Continuing the recent trend of liberals to divide America by race, gender, religion, income, job type, national origin, ear lobe type, and dialect style, Linda Martin Alcoff contends “No other group can realistically pose a threat of ballooning numbers like we can.”

After the event, Linda Martin Alcoff was asked about the likelihood or time frame for this all happening, and the only response was the sound of crickets chirping.

The cat must have gotten Linda’s tongue.

Frankly, it would seem Linda Martin Alcoff, whose Twitter avatar is people standing on the American Flag, is displaying the classic signs of psychological projection.

Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting the belief that others originate those feelings.[1]

Projection reduces anxiety by allowing the expression of the unwanted unconscious impulses or desires without letting the conscious mind recognize them.

An example of this behavior might be blaming another for self failure. The mind may avoid the discomfort of consciously admitting personal faults by keeping those feelings unconscious, and by redirecting libidinal satisfaction by attaching, or “projecting,” those same faults onto another person or object.

The theory was developed by Sigmund Freud—in his letters to Wilhelm Fliess, ‘”Draft H” deals with projection as a mechanism of defence’[2]—and further refined by his daughter Anna Freud, why it is sometimes referred to as Freudian Projection.[3]

Who in the heck is Linda Martin Alcoff?

Well, a quick search of her turned up her areas of interest:

19th and 20th Century Continental Philosophy



Feminist Epistemology

Feminist Theory

Critical Race Theory

Post-Colonial Theory

Courses Recently Taught

20th Century Continental Epistemology (Fall 2010)

Feminist/Post-Colonial Epistemology (Fall 2009)

What is Epistemology?

It’s a branch of philosophy that investigates the origin, nature, methods, and limits of human knowledge.

No offense to epistemologists, but it might be akin to a degree in underwater basket weaving for those who want to impress themselves with their great knowledge about something that really matters. (Cough cough).

Anyway, here’s the story from the Daily Caller:

City University professor: Whites may start race war against Latinos

(Daily Caller) – A professor from the City University of New York warned last week that white people may launch a “race war” against Latinos as a result of President Barack Obama’s re-election.

Linda Martín Alcoff, a philosophy professor, made the remark during a guest lecture at Columbia University. She was invited to speak by the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Columbia.

Demographic factors are causing white people to lose their political power to the rising Latino population, Alcoff argued.

“No other group can realistically pose a threat of ballooning numbers like we can,” said Alcoff, who is Hispanic. “It’s not like the Jews in Germany, where they were like 3 percent of the population and there was no real economic threat.”

Alcoff pointed to increases in gun sales and the growth of right-wing hate groups as evidence that white people see Latinos as a threat and may be preparing for a race war with them.

…Alcoff did not respond to requests for a clarification of her opinion on the likelihood of a race war breaking out between whites and Latinos. The center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity also did not respond to requests for comment.

It’s a long-standing tradition in my family—Get up early on Thanksgiving morning, harvest a few Latinos on our rural acreage, then head back to the homestead for a huge mid-day meal with the extended brood. Now it’s going mainstream—Cool! </sarc>

These people are wrong as whites no longer have the spiritual and physical strength necessary to exclude those who do not belong.

All that anger creates the stereotypical liberal “pinched face” look.

There has been a race war going on for a long time now. It’s called black on white crime.

While I pray to my loving God there will not be a race war, and just because I do carry a firearm for personal protection I give thanks every day I haven’t had to use it. But if someone goes to all the trouble to get a race war going and brings it to me, I’d hate to send them away disappointed.

Liberals would love to start a race war. There's a problem though. Since race wars are based on skin color, how do these lily white libs avoid getting whacked by the offended “people of color” [aka “victims of racism”]?

Liberals seem to think that being elite, white, and liberal is some kind of magic talisman that will keep the feral racists away when these racists come to exact revenge on their “oppressors” [aka what liberals call “conservatives”].

What a horrible wake up call to find the “oppressed” actually consider them as big oppressors as e-e-evil conservatives.

It will be interesting to see the “oppressed” racists drag these white liberals into the streets to be murdered in the most horrible of ways imaginable. They will not understand why their precious “victims” are killing them.

Thank you for noting this, people need to open their eyes. There is already an ongoing race war, and it's at least tacitly supported by those in power, including many so-called “conservatives”. If the crime rates were reversed, allowing for population rates, it could not be categorised as anything except genocide. Because whites are the victims, it's suppressed. Just as the genocide of whites in South Africa and Zimbabwe have been suppressed. If the equivalent had occurred to black victims by white perpetrators, you can bet your bottom dollar that the UN would be calling for action, according to UN regulations against ethnic cleansing and genocide, which according to their own regulations can be race replacement, not only actual killing.
