So It Turns Out You’re a Racist

Peter Van Buren has joined the the gulag.

He has been charged with various -isms and -phobias. He is unwilling to acknowledge the existence of “systemic racism” and his “white privilege” that flows from it. Sadly, he has been cancelled by his own relatives who are drunk on wokeness and have thrown in with the mob.


“Am I a racist? Are you? People tell me I sort of have to be a racist, it’s not really my choice. Today, if you’re old, white, from the Midwest, a bit conservative, then you’re racist. Maybe you don’t say racist things specifically, and maybe you never did anything to disadvantage a black person yourself, but by original sin, you’re part of “systematic racism.

Now maybe your immigrant parents arrived in the U.S. 75 years after slavery, or you as a white racist have trouble finding a privileged job that pays a living wage. No matter, you’re still privileged thanks to a system going back 400 years whether you like it or not. You can’t change what you are and people hate you for it. That’s the systemic part, defined as “not something that a few people choose to practice. Instead it has been a feature of the social, economic, and political systems in which we all exist.”

Allow me to explain how we arrived at this point.

Briefly, the last great Crisis in Western civilization were the World Wars of the early 20th century, which were won by the liberal West. In its moment of triumph over the Axis powers, a consensus emerged among liberal elites that racism and ethnonationalism were the cause of the wars.

The new order that emerged from World War II was built on the idea that “racism” was the greatest moral evil. This was the solution that our postwar elites came up with to prevent a resurgence of nationalism that would spiral into a Third World War. The term “racism” was virtually non-existent before World War II and was not considered a moral problem in the United States before that time. In the wake of that conflict, White nationalism and White racism became taboo and over time White identity became taboo as well. Whiteness became a target of deconstruction in the West. In contrast, other identities were elevated, strengthened and ennobled until whiteness itself came to be seen as inherently wicked.

80 years have passed since this process began in the late 1930s and early 1940s which were a watershed moment in the history of White racial attitudes in the United States:

We’ve been living under the yoke of anti-racism since 1941. Recently though, this obsession with anti-racism has spiraled to the point where it has plunged the country into a new Crisis period:

Wokeness has become a substitute religion.

In order to fully grasp what is happening, you have to understand anti-racism has always been the animating idea of the post-World War II era. “Racism” was conjured into existence as its enemy. Previously, Americans didn’t think of themselves as “racists” or “anti-racists.”

The current system which has existed since 1945 is best understood as “systemic anti-racism”: in the current social order, the worst thing you can be is a White “racist” and the best thing you can be is an “anti-racist.” In the mainstream, goodness is anti-racism and evil is “racism.”

This mania has gone on for so long and conservative liberals have played their part in upholding this system that something strange has happened: racial inequality has not gone away, but is more glaring than ever in the wake of coronavirus. There are no more actual “racists” in powerful positions in government or the culture who are oppressing black people. Thus, the system itself must be “racist” because it is oppressing blacks WITHOUT the presence of actual racists doing it. In spite of their best efforts, White people must be “racist” by definition since blacks are equal and there is no other explanation for black failure and inequality. Liberalism has become an obstacle to equality.

In such a way, liberalism finds itself devoured from within by “anti-racism,” not by racism and ethnonationalism. Wokeness is giving “meaning” to the lives of the mob. The old solution has become decadent and has become the new problem. It plunges the West into a new Crisis.

  1. I’m wondering what the specific turning point was in ~2013 when all of these graphs took off. Was it when Twitter really became weaponized for propaganda to Americans? Was it some centralized top-down order from the Obama administration? That’s not organic at all.

  2. “Racist” simply means White person.

    “Anti-racist” is a code word for Anti-White.

  3. it is called scapegoating and it is how Jews deal with their sinful abominable conduct. Jews do not confess their sin admit their wrongs and seek salvation thru Christ, no no no, Jews scapegoat, place their sins upon an innocent goat then cast the goat out into the wilderness. Whites, you are being scapegoated for the sins of the Jews. Is it the way of the Christian to blame others or is it the way of the Jew?

  4. In the end, these new racists would have been wise to take the racist position from the getgo. Individualism has destroyed white cohesion and, I’m afriad, many will die before it dawns on them that the real outcasts of society were truthful psychics all along: white supremecists, genuine conspiracy theorists (not the weaponized disinformation kind), and agnostics. Courage is a misunderstood word.

    I think it’s been fully validated that humanity is weakest when it ignores instinct. In our times, outside influences have far more power over us than the innate gifts we were given by our creator.

    Get that third eye working again.

  5. “He is unwilling to acknowledge the existence of “systemic racism” and his “white privilege”

    I looked on my 1040 and can’t find the “White privilege” checkbox.

    Someone help me.

  6. Churches use Scriptures that appear to be inclusive of all races and because of this Churches cannot handle the multitude of verses that are absolutely racist.

    The apparent conflict is one that is created through traditional beliefs, and this is mainly through extending the uses of words such as, “all”, “every”, “whosoever” and “the world” outside of
    individual contexts.

    A handful of belief questions follow that can be used to check up whether or not the reader agrees with God and the Bible, or with the Churches.

    SOME QUESTIONS (To check up on your beliefs).

    1. Do you not believe Jesus when He says that the mysteries of God are not given for everyone to understand? Matt. 13:11,

    “He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given”?


    2. Do you not believe the basis is belief within a race; that those “foreknown” in the NT are those “known” in the OT?

    “Rom 8:29 “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be
    conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many

    Rom 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified”.


    3. Do you believe that goats cannot turn into Sheep, or Tares into Wheat, because
    each is planted as “seeds”.

    Mat 25:32 “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on
    the left”.


    4. Do you not believe the racial/sexual content of “touch” in 2Co 6:17, “Wherefore come out from among them (are people), and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not (sexually-1 Cor. 7:1) the unclean (“thing” being an added word); and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty”.


    5. Do you not believe that the Potter makes differing vessels (races) for different purposes? Rom 9:21, “Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?”.


    6. Do you not believe this witness is true? Titus 1:12, “The Cretians are always liars,
    evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true”.


    7. Do you not believe that some people are not “ordained to eternal life”? Acts 13:48, “And as many as were ordained to eternal life believed”?


    8. Do you not believe Canaanites (modern Jews) and their offspring are barred from the congregation
    of the Lord and in the end, “And in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts”- Zech. 14:21?


    9. Do you not believe that racial intermarriage is prohibited, and that divorce of foreign wives and mixed offspring is demanded? -(Ezra 10 and Nehemiah 10 on). (Jude 1:7, 1 Cor. 10:6-10, Acts 15:20, Jeremiah 2:21-23, Hosea 5:7, Tobit 4:12).


    10. Do you not believe the separation of people into “man and beast”? Jonah 3:8


    11. Do you believe when names were written into the Book of Life? Rev.17:8 “They that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world”.


    Church and State do not believe many such things, simply because they are RACIST!!!

    I think we will here alot of wailing and gnashing of teeth on judgment day.

  7. Libs claim that inequality causes war? Sometimes I suppose it can. But the record of history shows that from the French Revolution to the Killing Fields of Cambodia, more human beings have died in the name of Equality than for any other cause. Lurking behind Equality is Envy, the source of mankind’s most unquenchable hatreds.

  8. “80 years have passed since this process began in the late 1930s and early 1940s which were a watershed moment in the history of White racial attitudes in the United States”

    Wrong, the watershed moment in race realism in the U.S. was after 1945, not before. Any mention of racism before then was a propaganda maneuver by the government to distinguish the Allies from the Axis to the public. Before the post-WWII era, eugenics and anti-miscegenation laws were enforced in most states, Northern segregation (closed housing, covenants, localized segregation codes) and Southern Jim Crow were in place and supported by most people, the overturn of the 1924 Immigration Act wasn’t even an issue, the armed forces were segregated, eugenics and race realism were taught in public schools, Hollywood followed the Hays Code and was pro-American, and liberal icon FDR didn’t challenge segregation and segregation was encoded in his New Deal policies.

    It was only after WWII when the left decided to use the horrific aftermath of the war and Hitler’s misuse of American eugenics laws in Nazi Germany to their advantage in challenging race realism at all levels and infiltrating academia, media, and government.
    That’s why the civil rights movement succeeded after the war and not before.

  9. Don’t worry, the youth will save us by trolling the libs with their smug cartoon frogs and Jewish “clown world” memes. Did you see Tucker last night?? BASED! Almost named (((them)))

    Trump 2020 MIGA!

  10. White racist? I will accept the compliment.

    I reckon Adolf Hitler never tried to tear down any White Statues so I will throw my lot in with the National Socialists & White Nationalists who actually respect my heritage!
