Tucker Carlson now regularly talks about antiracism and White identity.
Mark Dice is making videos about anti-Whiteism.
Matt Walsh is making videos about racial double standards.
Now, Rod Dreher is warning about The Collapse and is dabbling with race realism.
It appears that White Advocacy will be the next thing that is normalized and annexed to conservatism.
“We all live these ideological lies about race in America, because that’s what you have to do to participate in most institutional and professional life. But they are lies. Once more, those paying the greatest price for these lies are black people who are victims of these predators, and also black people who are not given as children what they need to build good lives for themselves. They are black people who are trained to think that any deficit within their own character or way of living that keeps them from getting ahead is really not their fault — and therefore something they could control, and overcome — but the fault of racism. But the other people paying the price are people like those non-black kids beaten up in the bathroom. They’re people like the victims of crime in cities where progressive, BLM-driven policies, have caused the police to pull back, or quit their jobs — including white people like the Chicago guy in the Tucker monologue who lives in what used to be a “nice” area, but is now menaced by at least two black gangs. And it’s non-black people who get fired from their jobs because they aren’t black. …”
Who is living by lies, Rod?
This stuff is all old hat to people like us.
If you have integrity, you say the same things in public that you believe in private.
Damon Linker has also noticed Rod’s radicalization.
“My answer: Because I’m genuinely dismayed by much of what he’s now saying and writing—and because the patterns I’m detecting in his thinking are familiar from the darker sides of both Christianity and right-wing politics. If Rod is thinking this way, I bet others are, too. Then there’s the possibility a wider circle of people will adopt similar habits by listening to him. Either way, I think Rod’s continued radicalization is significant and worthy of continued critical attention. …”
Edgy conservatism in 2022 sounds increasingly like things only we were saying a decade or so ago.
