From Tucker Carlson tonight:
The point is, scientific racism never actually went away. It’s still with us. No one talks about drapetomania anymore. Instead, our medical professionals and law professors and military leaders and politicians and cable news hosts have identified a new disorder they claim explains everything bad. It’s called whiteness.
In the universities, it has become an article of faith that, were it not for the indelible stain of whiteness, America could be a utopia. Only whiteness stands in the way. That’s why we must abolish it.
As “Harvard” Magazine put it, “Abolish the White Race,” only then can we be happy.
Lots of people seem to believe this. They’re not all bad people, just as not everyone who believed in Samuel Cartwright in the 1850s was evil. Some people are just gullible. They’re looking for meaning in their lives. If you hand them a unified theory of everything, some percentage of them are going to buy it wholesale.
There were nice people at Jonestown in Guyana. They just didn’t know any better. It’s their leaders that you wonder about. They do know better, or they should. And when they talk about this new iteration of scientific racism — when they talk about “whiteness” — they sound like old-fashioned bigots.
Take this guy for example. His name is Eric Michael Dyson. He is a tenured professor at some stupid college or other. He lives in a rich, almost exclusively white neighborhood. He goes on television a lot.
What him as he talks about race, and ask yourself, honestly, if he sounds any different at all from say, Bull Conner or David Duke He doesn’t, only the colors have changed.
Here he is:
ERIC MICHAEL DYSON, SOCIOLOGY PROFESSOR, GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY: “In speaking about, you know, the maggots- I’m sorry, the MAGA- that is so corrosive in this political moment.
And we have stood by to see mediocre, mealy-mouthed snowflake white men who are incapable of taking critique, who are willing to dole out infamous repudiations of the humanity of the other. And yet they call us snowflakes, and they are the biggest flakes of snow to hit the Earth.
They are incapable of criticism. They are incapable of tolerating difference. They’re scared of, ‘Oh, my god, critical race theory is going to kill your mother.’ And they don’t even know. They are not critical, they have no race, and they don’t understand theory.” Read more…
