This thought-comet streaked across my mind this morning. Sometimes I really wonder where they come from.
Jewish organizations have an award they give to non-Jews who have been good to Jews in hard times. They are given a title, “Righteous Among The Gentiles.”
When you think about it, it’s an iron fist in a velvet glove, an insult-filled cream cupcake.
Don’t know what I mean? Imagine, then, this award for Gentile-friendly Jews: “Honest Among The Hebrews.”
“Supernatural” once again played the Nazi card in an episode, going back in time, etc. But if I recall correctly, it was my friend Tom who suggested that TV/movie avoidance of Communists in favor of Nazis might not be entirely self-interestedly ideological or ethnic.
Truth is, Nazi’s are stark Germans with really classy uniforms and attention-getting hyper-clear accents and Communists are grey Russians with frumpy frocks and narcoleptically mumbly Slav accents. The Eeevil Krauts are just way more interesting.
To make a supernatural…comparison, the Nazis are like vampires and the Communists are like zombies. So who’s more appealing? A sexy well-dressed Count with laser-like focus and no apologies, or a slobbering mob of half-rotting corpses suppurating on your lawn?
Nevertheless! putting 70+ years of Marxist horror down the memory hole while still ramping up WWII (in one particular frame) 24/7….I still ask, “Cui bono?”, that is, “Who benefits?”
Had a bittersweet memory of my mostly happy years amongst the Jungians. Realizing that they directed far more powerful and sustained critiques against CG Jung, both as a man and as a thinker, than they would ever dare to direct toward MLK or Obama.
Kinda says it all right there.
I finally came up with an image that encapsulates my increasing discomfort with White adulation of Martin Luther King.
King was a Trojan Horse.
In Virgil’s Aeneid, describing the end of the ten-year war between the Trojans and the Greeks, The Trojans think they are bringing a sacred object into their walled city, but what it contains is their downfall: inside are hidden armed Greeks, who slaughter the Trojans in their sleep.
Gives a new interest to the famous and artistically influential statue which shows the end of the one man who tried to warn his fellow Trojans that the horse was a death-trap. “Equo ne credite! Don’t fall for the horse.” He gave us our phrase about “Greeks bearing gifts”: Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes.
Almost all of the US buys the cult of St Martin the Martyr as an American icon deserving his holy day and his Washington shrine. But this is what he really was: a Black nationalist icon as fully as the Black Muslim Malcolm X. King sanctified the whole false discourse and fraudulent ideology of “racism”, which will permanently hobble us and eventually erase us unless we escape from its deathgrip.
White conservatives and liberals alike claim King as a Good Negro* whom Whites can conscientiously admire, thus granting them conditional absolution from the “sin” that he was able to make them believe constituted their basic racist nature.
*[On King’s character, it is very likely that he was a serial adulterer. Ex Cathedra, with his own history of erotic pecadillos, does not much care about that. That’s what powerful men do (and women throw themselves at powerful men.) It is sort of an occupational perk hazard for Black preachers. But King certainly was a serial plagiarist whose clearly plagiarized doctorate dissertation was left intact by a craven White university out of nothing more than servile fear. And that is worth noting over and over again. “Dr” King did not deserve that title.]
Celebrating King –like celebrating Mandela, or even Ghandi–is essentially a thanksgiving to him for saving the (White) nation from its evil self*, awakening us to a crime that rendered all our achievements a hypocritical nullity, putting us forever in his debt for showing us our true nasty faces while dangling in front of us the possibility of pardon, if we were to rid ourselves of our “racism.”
The last 50 years have show that this indulgence is only available to Democrats, only on a contingency basis and for good behavior, much of which consists of attacking other Whites for being “racist.” Were the Liberals and the Blacks able to do it, our calendar would date from 1963, with everything prior to it consigned to the dustbin of oppressive Eurocentric history.
By the way, it makes not one whit of difference if the historical King was indeed the sainted humanist we are asked to believe in. It makes as little difference were the historical Marx to be revealed as a pacifist humanitarian: Marxism has a life and a reality which completely overwhelms its originator. Some child on the YouTube comments chastised me for connecting Mao and the Kims with Marx, on grounds that only Lenin and Trotsky were real Marxists, the rest were just Stalinists, etc. News flash: Marxism has an actual historical face. It is what it has shown itself to be, not what you think it should have been.
Same with the much adored “civil rights movement.” Whoever King was or wanted to be, he is now utterly wrapped up in the war for Black power that goes by that misleading name. If you look at his Maoist memorial, you can see the arm-folded anger and resentment, literally carved in stone. “The Debt“, as arch-Black-whiner Randall Robinson will tell you, is eternal.
Like the doomed Trojans, Nice White People think that in praising MLK they are bringing a sacred object into their society. But what is actually hiding inside it –as the last half century has shown– are the Farrakhans, the Sharptons, the Jacksons, the Obamas, the Holders, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus and Detroit –and their SPLC and ADL allies and funders–and yes, Black Lives Matter.
They are his people, not us.
