The Boomer Question

The SPLC is attempting to drag us into the debate about Baby Boomers:

“Brad Griffin AKA Hunter Wallace of Occidental Dissent and the Neo-Confederate League of the South, made his own attempt at Spencer’s banal point three months earlier in a slew of tweets titled “The Truth About Selma,” depicting a road-trip from the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery through the rural Black Belt.

This acknowledgement of poor and working-class woes, blindered by a strict focus on race, is a favorite recruitment strategy of the hallucinatory chess masters of the marginal right. Its success has been notably invisible. …”

No, I haven’t named the Boomer.

I said that lots of Baby Boomers came to the South from the North and West to participate in the Selma-to-Montgomery March. At the same time, the most notable civil rights activists who came to Alabama like James Zwerg, Viola Liuzzo and James Reeb weren’t Baby Boomers.

I don’t blame Baby Boomers for the Civil Rights Movement. The oldest Baby Boomers weren’t eligible to vote when the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed. The 26th Amendment, which lowered the minimum voting age to 18, wasn’t passed until 1971 and was a reaction to the Vietnam War.

The Civil Rights Movement in the United States was the work of the Greatest Generation and Silent Generation. It would be unfair to blame our grandparents though for the triumph of integration. At least in the South, the Greatest Generation and Silent Generation overwhelmingly opposed the Civil Rights Movement. Southerners in Congress voted down the Civil Rights Right Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Immigration Act of 1965 and the Fair Housing Act of 1968.

We got all of these things because the existence of the Union. Northerners and Westerners in Congress had the votes to overcome the Southern filibusters of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The Supreme Court imposed integration on the South in the Brown v. Board and Loving v. Virginia decisions. That wasn’t the work of the Baby Boomers either.

Are the Baby Boomers completely innocent then?

I’m not saying that either. The great change in White racial attitudes occurred in the South in the 1970s and 1980s. It occurred in the North and West a generation earlier in the 1940s and 1950s. The North and West imposed its new racial values on the South from the Smith v. Allwright decision in 1944 until the Fair Housing Act of 1968. The Southern Boomers conformed to a cultural change they really had nothing to do with and which was imposed on them by the federal government.

I don’t bash the Baby Boomers because the real changes occurred in America a generation earlier. It was the Truman administration that launched desegregation. This had more to do with the Greatest Generation and its experience in the Second World War and the conflict with the Soviet Union in the Cold War. The college campuses that poisoned the minds of the Boomers were hijacked a generation earlier and the outpouring of propaganda in the mass media was the work of their parents.

Americans have been becoming more liberal for generations. This has been going on for too long and in too many places to be the fault of any one generation. Millennials are even more liberal than the Baby Boomers. The same mistakes have been repeated in other countries. That’s because the real problem is liberal democracy. The logic of the system is what is ultimately driving these changes.

    It’s the JEWS, not the Boomers, for God’s sake. THE JEWS!!! Sometimes I have glimpses as to why the South lost the war, given how distracted Brad and Co. are by everything BUT the one thing that actually matters…the Jewish problem

    @ Goyim Goddess Yup. Men controlled the vote when American decided to allow the hordes of eastern european yids in, among other undesirables.White men let the jews in.


    Goyim Goddess you are 100% Correct about Southerners. Southerners have never quite understood the Jewish problem and the reason is because of the lack of major cities. In the states that made up the Old Confederacy, KY, MO, VA/West VA, TN, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, ARK, LA, TX and OK until World War II there were only a few major cities. Saint Louis, Kansas City, Louisville, Covington, Huntington, Richmond, Norfolk, Charlotte, Nashville, Memphis, Atlanta, Birmingham, New Orleans, and Houston. THAT WAS IT FINI. Everywhere else were small cities, basically overgrown Mayberry’s. The Jews who lived there had to integrate, they kept stores usually company stores, dry goods stores and owned cotton warehouses. They had to deal with people on a personal level, therefore they couldn’t afford to show themselves. Before the war one of the leading Jewish cities in the USA was Charleston South Carolina, another was New Orleans. EXCLUDING MARYLAND, WHICH WAS THE ONLY SOUTHERN STATE NOT LEGALLY IN THE CONFEDERACY, BALTIMORE HAD A MAJOR JEWISH POPULATION AND JEWISH POPULATIONS AS EARLY AS 1830. Maryland’s Jewish issue was more similar to the North than the South.

    As the South never had large enough cities to have giant Jewish ghettoes, they didn’t get an up close and personal feel about the Jews. In fact over time many Jews converted to Christianity and were racially absorbed. Some Southern White families are actually Jewish families. Again this wasn’t common as there weren’t many there to begin with but Jewish White intermarriage was more prevelent in Dixie than the North. Jews were legally white under US Law and the laws of the CSA.

    The North on the other hand responded to the Jewish issue because there were hundreds of thousands more of them by segregating them and restricting them to particular occupations and colleges. Most colleges before WWII had either a FORMAL or INFORMAL Jewish quota and most schools had an informal Negro Quota as well. Only X number of said groups were admitted to the school in a given year. This was why there were Negro colleges. After WWII, Middlesex University in Boston was Bankrupt. The Jews came forward, purchased it and renamed it after Louis Brandeis, first Jewish SC Justice, Brandeis University. This was done precisely because of the Jewish Quota. Harvard and Yale didnt end their quotas till the sixties.

    Unfortunately the Northern system of Segregation allowed the Jews greater power as it was safety in numbers. Between 1865 and 1920, Jews took control of entire sections of Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Saint Louis, Philadelphia, Camden, Trenton, Newark, New York City, Boston, and even Los Angeles California. This is a tiny list of the cities. They already controlled Baltimore. New York City it was said in 1920 was at most 60% White then because about 35% of the rest of the White number was Jewish. Imagine that a city in 1920 that was on paper about 92-95% white, but in actuality is only about 60% White once the Jews are subtracted.


    I think I know you under another name, Harley am I right? Anyway remember something, the Jews were here LONG BEFORE the 1870s they were here in Colonial times. Most of these assimilated early Jews were also Freemasons. Freemasonry is Judaism for the Gentiles, this is one reason Catholics are forbidden to become Masons. The Jews used their Brother Masons to shape the laws for their benefit. Thomas Jefferson’s Naturalization Act of 1802 ie Open Borders allowed from 1802-1924 12 million Jews to come to the USA. Jefferson was a Freemason and acolyte of (((Adam Weishaupt))) leader of the ILLUMINATI.


    Masonic lodges are established all over the world to help us achieve our independence. Those pigs, the (((GOYIM))) non-jewish masons, will never understand the final objects of masonry.’”

  2. Hey everyone.

    I was born in 1957. I guess that puts me in the hated Baby Boomer category, though I think it’s inaccurate. There is such a night and day difference between the attitudes of those who were born between 1946 and 1954 and those born from 1955 and 1964 that it would be easier to categorize the latter half as the Echo Boomers. This was something they named Gen X before they became Gen X.

    The cut off point was when the government ended the draft. Those draft eligible during the Vietnam War were more radicalized towards leftism than those born afterwards.

    So my group was and is more patriotic and conservative than the older group. Think of the series, The Wonder Years and Those Seventies and that was my era. My age group had zero impact on what was happening and we got all our information from the newspapers and three news channels.

    I don’t know if finger-pointing does any good at anyone who made their decisions without all the information at hand. If the internet had been available before White men let Eastern European Jews in, would it have happened? If the internet had been available before the USA had been dragged into WWI and WWII, would we still go? If the internet had been available to the North when protestors and agitators were raising hell all over the South in the name of Voting Rights and Civil Rights, would integration been imposed on the South?

    I don’t think so.

    We should all get down on our hands and knees and thank God that we have the internet NOW. Otherwise, we’d be talking about the latest antics of Hillary Rodham Clinton and watching her appoint judges that are gun grabbers and the Congress put in hate speech laws.

    And we should stay on our knees and pray that it isn’t too late to save the future for our children.

    In any case, I don’t think it helps our cause one whit to blame this generation for that and that generation for this. The last thing we need is more infighting and division. We need to plaster over our differences and unite as much as we can

  3. “Generation Jones” is a name for the latter part of the Baby Boomers. “Echo Boomers” is an alternate title for Millennials, as they are largely the literal and cultural progeny of their parents, the Boomers.

    The point that the Alt-Right makes about the Boomers is not that they’re particularly bad or good or anything, it’s just that they’re currently the power generation, and their being in power means that a lot of old obsolete ways are still being enforced. I think once the Boomers age out of power, that will change so much that it’s going to be shocking, it’s going to be like the ground under our feet is shaking.

    1965, the beginning birth year of Generation X, is also a line of demarcation for white rightists. If you were born before then and a white rightist, your conservatism is normie (think: Rush, Reagan, NR). If after, then it’s Alt-Right. As a matter of generalities, of course. Coincidentally, I mentioned 1965 and Reagan, and November 6, 1966 is an important date in Reaganology because it was the last day you could have been born and ever been able to cast a vote for Reagan for any public office. (1984 Presidential election minus 18 years). Note that that is more than 50 years ago now, therefore, anyone under the age of 50 (FIFTY!) today could have never voted for Reagan for anything.
