Bottom Line: If we’re the tyrannical scum that all these groups say we are, shouldn’t we just make ’em cut it out? Shouldn’t we force all those people calling us all those horrible things to just … zip it? Shouldn’t we just mobilize the vast herds of brown-shirted, jack-booted thugs supposedly at our disposal, and shut down all this vitriol raining down on us? Wouldn’t any self-respecting tyrant group do that? Just … shut down all the complainers? Wouldn’t we, you know, round ’em all up and throw ’em in jail? Maybe disappear ’em?
Read it well: If we western white men were one-tenth as awful as they say we are, then no one anywhere would be saying anything awful about us at all.
First things first: I challenge anyone — anyone at all — in the Feminist Grievance Industry or the Race Grievance Industry to produce any evidence that might suggest that I’m wrong in any of what I say in the following essay.
Well. Pretty bold assertion, that. Western men — the Race Grievance Industry will read “white” into that — the Heroes of Civilization?!?
Heroes. The Heroes.
They’re the ones everyone loves to hate. They’re the racists, the sexists, the homophobes, the islamophobes. They’ve been squashing and/or enslaving black Americans, women, brown Americans, gays, trans-thisses and trans-thats, the poor, children, the elderly, the sick and the weak. They’re mean and cruel, heartless and cold. They’re greedy and selfish. They secretly hold all power, and they use it to smack all these people down, and smack them down again. They beat their wives, slap their children and kick their dogs. They rape, kill, steal and attack, then they do it all again. They walk all over their grandmothers just to enrich themselves, leaving the frail, old woman in the snow bank outside the Senior Citizens Home with a moth-eaten shawl and $20. Who are these disgusting, vile, ugly, violent creatures? Western — yes, mostly white — men.
But wait a minute.
Look at what I just said. And, again, remember that there’s a challenge out there. Feminists, RGI members: Prove anything in this essay wrong. Anything at all.
Again, look at what I just said. It’s nothing that all the people in the above-mentioned groups haven’t said … over and over and over and over and over and over again. I can point you to two places where they say it all the time. Blogs that I enjoy. Here’s one. Here’s another one.
In both of those blogs, the participants regularly claim that western, white men are all racists and sexists, and all the rest of the litany of vitriol that we’ve all heard. And why? Why are we western white men racists and sexists and all the rest? Easy: because we’re (mostly) white, and because we’re men.
Yep. Nothing other than that.
The official position of Feminism International, Inc. is that men are jerks … because they’re men. The official position of Race International, Inc is that white men are jerks … because they’re white.
Well, the official position of these people is also: that white men run the show. They’re in charge everywhere, and they run everything!
So, here we are, we western, white dudes, and we’re towering clodpoles, and horrific, snarling, cruel, evil tyrants, and We. Run. Everything.
And we allow this kind of abuse to rain down on our heads? Seriously? Kind of a disconnect, eh?
If we’re the tyrannical scum that all these groups say we are, shouldn’t we just make ’em cut it out? Shouldn’t we force all those people calling us all those horrible things to just … zip it? Shouldn’t we just mobilize the vast herds of brown-shirted, jack-booted thugs supposedly at our disposal, and shut down all this vitriol raining down on us? Wouldn’t any self-respecting tyrant group do that? Just … shut down all the complainers? Wouldn’t we, you know, round ’em all up and throw ’em in jail? Maybe disappear ’em?
Read it well: If we western, white men were one-tenth as awful as they say we are, then no one anywhere would be saying anything awful about us at all.
Why do all the grievance groups say horrible things about all us western, white men? Simple: because they can.
I was listening to some half-wit on a college radio station doing a very fluent diatribe on the horrors of white men. She was being interviewed by a white man and a white woman who were both supporting the interviewee’s position enthusiastically.
Know why she was saying all that? Because she felt there was no risk whatsoever in saying it. She knew with 100% certainty that she could impugn, malign, lampoon, insult, abuse and excoriate white men with no risk whatsoever to her health or welfare from that selfsame group of supposedly nightmarish oppressors.
What kind of oppressor is that?!? Meet my raving, snarling, monstrous oppressor … and Mrs. Milquetoast.
Now, try to say something — anything — that could be even slightly interpreted as not entirely adulatory about … black people. (Ask Paula Deen, for example.) About women. (Ask Tim Hunt, for example.) About Gays. (Ask Brendan Eich, for example) About muslims, trans-thisses and -thats, Hispanics, and so on…
Remember: there’s still a challenge out there. I was thinking of offering a substantial monetary reward to any person who offers me compelling evidence that anything I say in this essay is untrue.
So, as you and I both know, you can say anything at all about western, white men, and the worst that will happen to you is that you might get your name on FOX News, where you might hear some tsk-tsking … but that’s it. Nothing worse than that.
However, if you were to say anything even slightly negative about the snowflakes in the various branches of the vast Great American Grievance Industry, then prepare to lose your job, possibly your career, possibly your friends, your money and your ability to earn a living. In this, the land where “free speech” is supposed to be Holy Writ.
And who was it who set all this up? Who made it so that you can go out in the street and criticize the prevailing power structure in this country to your heart’s content? Without any fear whatsoever for your safety or livelihood?
Why, it was we terrible, scary, western, white guys.
How do I know this? Simple: We nasty, wasty, pasty-faced, western, white men hold veto power over every single other group out there. We’re the biggest, most powerful group in the world. We’re physically stronger than the women, and just as smart. We’re much more numerous than any other race in America.
We could shut down any group at all in America that we might choose to. And we’ve demonstrated time and time and time and time and time again, that we have no desire whatsoever to do so. No inclination at all to shut, hold, push … keep down anyone at all. How do I know this? Simple: because we haven’t — when we could have, at any time we wished. Yet, everyone is still out there, whining about just how awful we pale faces are … while our inaction completely disproves their points.
So, yes, we western white men are the Heroes of Civilization. We aren’t remotely perfect, but we are the group who have engaged in decades, centuries, of the introspection, thought, reflection necessary to:
- Abolish slavery.
- Relinquish power and authority to the other half of humanity: women.
- Relinquish power and authority to previously disenfranchised minority groups.
- Produce meaningful efforts to abolish poverty, disease and a thousand other pathologies that have afflicted humans forever.
- Produce and publish a canon of thought that has contributed to more freedom, better health, greater prosperity for, literally, billions of people around the world.
- Except for the “abolish slavery” part, all the rest happened without a shot fired. And slavery would have been abolished without a shot fired as well, if the South hadn’t decided to secede.
Western white men, and the country that has been their most visible, powerful and prominent home, the United States of America, are the only group in the history of humanity to have done all that.
The challenge is out there: I challenge any feminist or race baiter out there to deliver any compelling evidence whatsoever that anything I’ve said is wrong.
