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.
And now you see the significance of "feminism" .... which is really "divide white America"-ism.
Betty Friedan spent her young womanhood as a writer/propagandist for the newspaper of the Communist Electricians' Union. You won't find that in (Prog-sanitized) Wikipedia, but just metasearch on "Betty Friedan" +Communist and see what you get.
Look at it this way, too. Imagine an ethnic pie-chart of US society. Mark out the ethnoi, and leave the Caucasian European-Americans white. Now divide it in two, and mark one-half with the Venus symbol, and the other half with the Mars symbol. NOW do you see the significance of "feminism"?
Feminism was always a bad beef, a big bucket of puke and b.s. -- but it was never intended to be actually true, it was always, but always, operational truth intended to motivate American women to turn against male society and bitch, bitch, bitch!
They didn't have to become Communists. All they had to do was push a beef -- or beeves -- to divide the country, to put the whole thing into play.
It's so cynical I want to puke. And society honors that woman!
It’s not just “old white men” it’s all white men. Notice on TV, commercials repeatedly cast the white man as a boob, while the non white man is portrayed as the sucessful business man or much literate person. Just more brainwahing of America.
Everything from the Left sounds like adolescent rebellion. So unattractive from those way beyond seventeen. Someone needs to tell them to just grow up already.
You mean Harry Reid, the old white guy himself?
I have yet to see Harry Reid when he is not angry. And by all appearances he is an old white man. What’s up with this?
These folks are idiots.
When the economy collapses, the color of the folks who killed us will not be relevant.
We must keep focused, and we must ignore this silly distraction.
I await a similar list from another demographic."
Lohan, Bieber, Kardishian, Obama, Rice, Jackson, Pitt..... The list is endless.
The left actively works against ALL of God’s laws.
This is taking the 5th commandment and turning it 180 deg,
like they do everything.
Yes. And to be removed from disability, the condition which impelled your qualification for disability would have to improve - an unlikely outcome for an aging person.
Name any movie or tv Drama made in the last 20 yrs and you will find the Bad guy a white,male, Business man. Good guys? Black, Honorable , Brave, Decent and Smart!Every Judge is a wise and fair older Black man and I believe God is made in the image of Morgan Freeman.It’s good that we had Blacks in this country otherwise we would never have developed America.
HEY I AM ONE OF THEM ALMOST
I WANT A DAMN PARADE FOR OLD WHITE MEN
I FEEL VERY DEPRIVED
The American Nazis and communists are wimps and cowards who wear eyeliner and carry poodles in their purses. They best be real careful what they wish for. White people are the best fighters in the world, and they carry various weaponry on their person. Their personal armory would make a Marine squad smile. White guys are capable of unleashing incredible destruction.
You have a cold, dark and pitiless soul. I like it :)
I believe such a “parade” should be made, armed, in a direction approximately due southerly of Harrisburg PA. I believe about a million armed old men should suffice. at 62 with a game knee I can think of no better way to cap my career.
Someone once told me that its impossible to tell someone what fried skunk tastes like unless you have eaten it yourself.
That, in a nutshell, is an absolute truth when it comes to a generation that was raised after 1970.
They never experienced (nor ever will) the freedoms we had up to the mid 60’s, enforced laws, security and a world that they could never imagine.
It was a different and much better America up until then and once women burned their bras and turned their backs on the responsibility to raise the children to pursue their “careers,” and men were to support and protect the family, the world changed for the worse never to look back at the world of order, responsibility, morals and law. They expected the government to raise their children and in too many cases “love’s little accidents” from infant day care through 1-12 day care centers called schools (indoctrination centers) and once grown, welfare or government jobs (or jobs existing solely due to the government).
No, the good times have come and gone and today’s generation does not even suspect that times in America were a completely different situation from where it is today.
They’ve never tasted skunk and there’s are fewer and fewer left each year to tell them what it tastes like.
The angriest group of people I see are black women.
They went biggest for Obama.
TV shows (and ads) pretty much follow the same pattern these days:
1. The white heterosexual male is a blithering idiot; the pee-on. Hes good for involuntarily funding a society that hates his existence, though.
2. The person in charge is usually a woman or minority or a female minority combo package. The mom rules the roost; the dad is there to be the butt of jokes and ignored, except when mom wants to go buy shoes or the kids want $omething.
3. The token gay character represents the conscience/moral authority (what a f*cking joke) of the situation/show.
I stopped watching shows like Law and Order when show after show the bad guy was a White VietNam veteran.
There you go.
That show (all versions, actually) follows the formula I laid out to a “T”, except swap out “pee-on” for “criminal”
you got that right!!!
There are reasons why the world shook out like it did.
I completely agree with you; I don’t intend to go quietly (and I’ve bred in preparation).
It is weird to see NY go back to feudalism, with their hands out to those who live in the manor, seeking assistance from their benevolent despots for electricity and fuel. NJ was back on its feet much more quickly because so many of us left NY for the very reason that we didn’t want to live on a feudal manor anymore (and people refused to do so). Our gas lines had cops all over them because we left NY for this very reason (so we could drive cars, pay low gas taxes - among the lowest in the country - etc.). Our governor (not a mayor who overturned term limits because he wanted to prolong his reign) responded accordingly...
“Feminism” worked well; now those same hags are whining because nobody will impregnate them. They are living the lives of white men (no excuse to leave the office early due to sick children), and they are HATING it. Who cares? I’m glad they get to pass schoolyards full of Hispanic/Asian children every day on their way to work, while the mothers of those children (while many work) get to raise the children American women CAN’T have because nobody is stupid enough to give them to them.
Elections (and laws, and “cultural shifts”) have consequences.
Jefferson was down on cities and "urbanism" for the very reasons you describe.
I wonder how many old bachelors there are out there like me, whose anthem was and is, "(I'll Never Be Your) Beast of Burden". To quote Mick, "Never, never, never, never, never, never, never be."
What Betty Friedan did was so horrendous, so horrific, she deserves a separate hell all her own, with fresh Lucifers and fresh Belials and Belfogars all conjured from the Eternal Mind, just for her, all for her, to balance the scales for what she did. She may have committed "policide" or "democide" -- the murder-by-poison (mental poison) of a people.
White men did not choose to be white or male, but old white men chose to be old. It’s their own damned fault.
Everybody [Micturates on] Raymond and King of [Not a Damn Thing] fit that formula. Useless lumps of guymeat -- I refuse to watch either show. Even now, whenever I see Patricia Heaton on TV in some other show, I get an instant "cold-on". What a hag, what a nasty little beastwoman. Women like her used to get shaken out early in life and wound up in convents or nunneries ("nunneries" in the Chaucerian sense, as in "get thee to a ...."). Or drudging some guy's slate floors and getting jumped on and rogered by his sons, and bearing bastard lordlings out in the barn.
Or did I miss something?
“Or did I miss something?”
The systematic destruction of our society. It started in force in the 1960’s and has led to where we are today.
Actually, Patricia Heaton is a Republican in real life; however her character on that show (I watched it ~1.5 times total; never found it funny) is a nattering bitch-a-roo.
It’s grey tufted geezer season and the dems are only selling hunting licenses to the young, dumb and fashionable. Sad.
