Christopher Donovan: It’s a question in my mind. It’s a well-established kabuki dance: anti-whites call conservatives, Tea Partiers, and Confederate sympathizers “racists” who are hiding their true feelings. The conservatives respond with indignation, insisting that “Southern heritage” and the free market are their real concerns.
In the New York Times this morning, Newsweek editor Jon Meacham denounces the Virginia governor’s declaration of Confederate heritage month. It’s a typical yawner about how bad Whites are, and I’m sure someone will complain that “we’re not racists, we just want to honor the South” or some such.
There is a third position, however: White advocacy. It admits the anti-White critique that Confederate flags mask more direct racial concerns, but rejects the anti-White conclusion that the concerns aren’t legitimate. Why can’t this position get a hearing in the New York Times? Believe me, I’ve tried. But the New York Times is like a thick, high gray wall, allowing only the perspectives that advance its anti-white agenda. Its gatekeepers are always liberal and often Jewish, and they probably know full well that if an institution as grand and respected as itself lends credence to White advocacy, the universe as they’ve constructed it would start to crumble.
