Ibram X. Kendi, the high priest of Wokeism, has taken to the pages of The Atlantic to confirm what I have long been saying about him on this website:
“Here’s the way this works: 1.) we create potent critiques, memes, caricatures and narratives on small websites like this one, 2.) we stay out of the public spotlight and avoid stepping all over our message, 3.) progressives wield power in draconian ways that alienate White people who do not live in deep blue urban enclaves like Brooklyn, 4.) this confirms the critiques and narratives which originate here and are picked up by the rightwing media ecosystem. Democrats, for example, can’t decide whether the Great Replacement is a far right conspiracy theory or something to celebrate as social justice. Is using the term “anti-White” a racist dog whistle, or, should we actually embrace putting down White people as a positive good?”
I’ve said it before:
“Ibram X. Kendi is blaming the “antiracist is code for antiwhite” meme for the backlash against wokeness and CRT. This is a great example of what I am talking about.
There were a group of White Nationalist activists who started relentlessly pushing this message a decade ago on the internet. Over the last decade, these people have been vindicated by people like Ibram X. Kendi, Robin DiAngelo and the Great Awokening. They successfully framed the issue as “antiracism = anti-white” and saturated the internet in that sort of discourse and when Kendi and folks like him took off those who opposed it out of instinct in the mainstream started using the term “anti-white.” …
Once again, it makes more sense to continue pushing forward. We should continue to push our same message and adapt it to this more favorable context. In the context of woke supremacy, the idea that “antiracism is anti-white” is no longer as abstract as it was a decade ago.
Millions of people have seen things over the past year like Portland in flames and the White House under siege which has led them to believe it is true. In fact, it is easy to put the face of Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo on the whole phenomena now. We now have villains who personify this classic message.”
This is actually what happened too.
I’ve long seen people like Ibram X. Kendi and the woke professional blacks – Don Lemon, Charles Blow, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Joy Reid, Tiffany Cross, Jonathan Capehart, the whole class of insufferable whiners – as a major asset to our cause whose legacy would be to undermine “antiracism.”
“If we are being honest, Ibram X. Kendi is probably the best thing that has happened to our cause in the past 20 years. In the Joe Biden presidency, our new message is going to be “we told you so.”
Whether it was White Nationalists or the Alt-Right, the pro-White community had been saying for generations that “anti-racism is anti-White” and that Whites were too cavalier about changing racial and cultural demographics and had let our guard down and that it would end in a racial dystopia like South Africa. By redefining the meaning of the terms “racism” and “anti-racism” and persuading the political establishment to embrace his systematic racism conspiracy theory, Ibram X. Kendi has confirmed that antiracism is synonymous with anti-whiteness and has destabilized the status quo.
From a sheer metapolitical standpoint, this is an enormous victory for us. Kendism has become fashionable on the Left and has supplanted Kingism which is passé. Whereas Kingism cleverly and successfully disarmed White identity for a generation, Kendism is having the opposite effect. MLK and the “reverends” who followed him were held in such high esteem that consensus antiracism became a “mainstream” custom for a generation. Whites put aside their own identity and interests to create what they thought at the time was going to be a colorblind utopia. It was all going to work out. Racism was going to fade away. Racial differences and division was going to disappear. We were all going to be judged by the “content of our character” as human beings. We were all going to “progress” into the happy future.
Conservatives actually believed this stuff and still cling to this old myth like a comfort blanket. They aren’t willing to face the facts which is that Whites were conned. The rhetoric of “colorblindness” was a useful device that the Left cynically used to push their agenda. They had already discarded it by the late 1960s. We often forget that the Civil Rights Movement itself embraced Black Power in the late 1960s. We don’t want to remember that the movement ended in the worst race riots until the ones we had last summer.
Kendi has framed the debate over policing as a choice between antiracism and abolishing the police or “white supremacy.” This isn’t a bad either / or choice for us. Insofar as Democratic cities embrace his progressive doctrines and defund or abolish the police, it leads to an explosion in violent crime that splits the non-White bloc vote. Insofar as Republicans and conservatives push back against this nonsense, it forces them to say “no” to woke professional blacks like Kendi and not to be afraid of being accused of “racism” plus it helps them with non-White voters who don’t like criminals either.
Imagine living in a country where White people can say “no” and stand up for themselves. We, too, have a dream.”
Ibram X. Kendi has made White liberals more toxic and out of touch with the wider electorate and more of a liability for the Democrats. He has emboldened White conservatives to stand up for themselves and to openly push back against “antiracism” instead of collapsing into a puddle as usual. It is too late for Joe Biden and the political establishment to come to its senses and drop this guy.
“Below a democratic donkey, the Fox News graphic read anti-white mania. It flanked Tucker Carlson’s face and overtook it in size. It was unmistakable. Which was the point.
The segment aired on June 25—the height of the manic attack on, and redefinition of, critical race theory, which Carlson has repeatedly cast as “anti-white.” It was one of his most incendiary segments of the year. “The question is, and this is the question we should be meditating on, day in and day out, is how do we get out of this vortex, the cycle, before it’s too late?” Carlson asked. “How do we save this country before we become Rwanda?” …
“Anti-racism is anti-white” is the mantra dividing the Democratic Party, especially since the 2021 elections. It is the mantra unifying the Republican Party, especially since the 2020 election. There are numerous variations on this mantra. “Wokism” or anti-racism or critical race theory or the 1619 Project or“cancel culture” or Black Lives Matter or anyone challenging racial inequity is said to be anti-white or racist or an anti-white racist. And variations on this mantra have become so ubiquitous in the American political discourse that people can easily dismiss or deny its origin in white-supremacist thought
“When Robert Whitaker, 76, died in June 2017, white supremacists reflected on his legacy online. “Perhaps his most important, and most lasting, legacy is that his incessant promotion of the term ‘anti-white’ is now slowly but surely going mainstream,” someone named “Bellatrix” said on Stormfront, the prominent white-supremacist website. “A very important corner to turn indeed, as it is the rebuttal of the accusation of racist.”
Whitaker, a former economics professor and Reagan appointee to the Office of Personnel Management, had been radicalized as a young man in opposition to the civil-rights movement. He was a propagandist for more than half a century. But Whitaker’s fame among the most extreme white supremacists came toward the end of his life, when he wrote a screed called “The Mantra.”
“The Mantra” ends with what has become the new mantra in American politics: “They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.”
Over the next decade, and particularly after Barack Obama’s election, a self-identified “swarm” of online trolls posted quotes and reprinted “The Mantra” online wherever they could, and attacked anti-racists as “racist” whenever they could. …”
The most remarkable thing about this transformation is that it happened so suddenly. I wouldn’t put it back further than the George Floyd riots.
In his entire presidency, Donald Trump mentioned White people maybe two or three times. Trump only signed an executive order to ban CRT in September 2020, but no one knew what it was at the time. It has only been in the last year and largely since Trump left office in January that FOX News has aired thousands of segments about it. It has only been in the last few months that the term “anti-White” and the Great Replacement has gone mainstream. Marjorie Taylor Greene tweets all the time about how Democrats hate “White men” which is something that I have never seen Trump do even once.
