Posted on 11/29/2012 10:53:18 PM PST by neverdem
While modern society prides itself on being unbiased, it's no exception to the rule that every age has its fashionable prejudices -- and unfashionable people. Among the latter today are white men, and the closer they are to "dead white male" status, to use a favored leftist descriptive, the greater the disdain in which they're held.
Thus do we see sneering at "old white men." Earlier this year, Senator Harry Reid -- one well acquainted through experience with old-white-male machinations -- complained of "angry old white men" who bankroll conservative causes. More recently, the old-white-media paper the Guardian published a piece about America's changing demographics titled, in part, "No country for angry old white men...." Ah, yes, it's not just that they're old, white, and men, that Triad of Turpitude. They're "angry," too. So just dismiss them out of hand, with their agenda born of blinding, irrational hatred. It's another example of projection, from the group (leftists) that makes intellect-clouding emotionalism an art.
If we're to define matters based on group identification, however -- and the left makes clear we will -- there is an irony here.
You could roughly say that old white men built the whole modern world.
You can precisely say this if you include in the category the budding old white men known as younger...
Roman philosopher and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero once said, "To be ignorant of the past is to be forever a child. For what is the time of a man, except it be interwoven with that memory of ancient things of a superior age?" Demonizing white men old or dead keeps the young and alive disconnected from them and hence from the past. This gives us a civilization of children, just the kind of people a pied piper can lead.

This is why God gave us grandfathers, of which I are now one. I do actually recall that in HS English class, this would be 1965, my teacher, in the course of some rant on youth rebellion or something, disbelieved my remark that I respected my grandfather and valued his opinions. Time marches on.
The new American Minority..............
“old white men.”
We and our fathers and our fathers fathers and their fathers built this country and have defended it for years and years . At great cost .
We have no intention of surrendering all that heritage to the lousy, undeserving johnnie-come-latelies or the waves of intentionally cultivated Dem voting immigrants , or the despicable haters of American exceptionalism . To hell with them all .
It isn’t going to happen .
This that think they hold power are just fooling themselves . Rise up ! Exsurgemous .....
I have no confidence that the future majority coalition of Black and Hispanic Socialists will be willing to pay SocSec and Medicare for millions of old white guys.
Blacks and Hispanics have been taught their entire lives to despise people like me.
My instincts say to grab anything I can today, because it ain't going to be there tomorrow.
And here's something interesting about Social Security...
If I sign up today for SocSec, my payment will be 25% below what I would get at 66.
However, if I sign up for Social Security Disability, and get approved, my payment will be almost exactly as much as I would get at 66.
If anyone has wondered about the explosion of Disability claims in recent years - and that would include me - that explains everything.
Last I checked, we still dominate the corporate world, the halls of government and the best doctors, lawyers, inventors, money guys, scientists, etc.
We are not going away. The rest of the world can’t live without us.
The derelicts fostering this hatred toward white males deserve an extraordinary response.
Good luck to them.
1930s revisited: denigrate, isolate, eradicate
Yes, my sons are learning the values of those “old white men”; those that wish to rob them of their savings, dignity, history, etc. should realize there are still young white men as well - learning the benefits and accomplishments of Western Civilization (inextricably entwined with Christianity) while getting a primer in the deficiencies of other civilizations through world news and the firsthand experiences they have with foreign “replacement Americans” today.
“Last I checked, we still dominate the corporate world, the halls of government and the best doctors, lawyers, inventors, money guys, scientists, etc.”
Today it is hard enough for a young white guy to get an education, job or promotion (in comparison to his “protected” female or ethnic peers); if that domination was real we wouldn’t have a foreign Muslim Bolshevik as president.
“We are not going away. The rest of the world cant live without us.”
They certainly seem willing to give it a try; there are huge obstacles to whites breeding (without ending up on a welfare reservation), and the birthrate has plummeted. Any trip past a schoolyard or to a maternity ward will illustrate just how dire the situation is (if the recent election didn’t convince you). Millions of missing white voters? They got old and died, and their offspring (and their offspring) simply won’t replace themselves.
DaVinci, Einstein, Newton, Jefferson, Locke, Hawking, Galileo, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Michelangelo, Mozart, Columbus, Lincoln, Alexander the Great, Elvis, Lennon, McCartney, Buckminster Fuller, Tesla, Ford, Twain, Patton...
Im just getting started. Its a pretty wide ranging group but I await a similar list from another demographic. And wait, and wait.
Our South American friend Ferfal, from the safety of Northern Ireland (yes -- he emigrated to Northern Ireland for the stability and the safety!), informs us that the left-wing Kirchner dictatorship in Argentina is doing the same thing, importing masses of semiliterate and illiterate Bolivian Indians who can barely speak Spanish, to stuff ballot boxes in Argentina, in return for other people's jobs, money, and land. And the patronage of the regime, of course.
Same game the Dems have been playing with Mexicans since 1953, when the foot in the door was Lyndon Johnson's. He knew Mexicans bloc-vote Socialist.
That would be, exsurgamus if you intended it to be an optative subjunctive. Or exsurgemus as a simple future indicative.
The comparable line of Kit Marlowe's from The Tragickal History of Dr. Faustus is,
Appareat et exsurgat Mephistophilis!!!
“The more diverse America becomes, the more Democrats will appeal to racial resentment against whites.”
You’re absolutely right; on top of that, as long as they can dupe white women into going their way, they can win national elections. Blacks have been clamoring for some time to have white women removed from the list of “protected” minorities; when the time comes I’ll be happy to go along with that.
Pure hatred and revenge, among those so minded (who are those whom the Communists would mobilize).
Historically, we outshone them, we outperformed them, we shaded them. Not for the sake of doing so, but in pursuit of our own goals, out of love of knowledge and power over time and distance, for many reasons unobjectionable per se except to ideologues; but having done so, many people now hate us and want to see things another way, as if we had never existed.
The Communists are working on genocide here because the U.S. is a strong and resourceful, and therefore dangerous, enemy. Therefore, they are pursuing a Carthaginian solution as articulated by Bill Ayers 40 years ago: 25,000,000 patriots dead, the rest indoctrinated or broken.
They'll need some really strong hate to fire those crematoria.
There is no wonder that they despise the “old white men.”
They have a disease that has infected their generation and is now being eradicated by today’s generation. If totally eradicated by the extinction of “old white men” today’s generation (and future ones) will not to have to carry the disease and transmit it to their children in the future.
The disease is WORK ETHIC and it is enhanced by RESPONSIBILITY.
