Whoopi and the Professor

Thoughtcrime can lead to thought experiments. All it takes is a willingness to go where the less foolhardy are loath to go. What is race? What is an atrocity? When is a racist atrocity neither racist nor an atrocity? The answers may not be as cut-and-dried as you may think.

In what seems like eons ago, what with the Biden Administration’s incitement of the late Ukrainian unpleasantness, Whoopi Goldberg denied racism had anything to do with the Holocaust. She uttered this blasphemy on the Jan. 31, 2022, showing of The View. Cavalierly dismissing so monumental an atrocity with the “man’s inhumanity to man” platitude fell woefully short of doing it justice. To make matters worse, she claimed both Jewish victims and Nazi victimizers were White.

Sorry, Whoopi. When it comes to the Holocaust, we’re talking unparalleled evil. Nothing in history can hold a candle to it. With racism the deadliest of the Eight Deadly Sins, the Holocaust can’t help but have oozed it.

Every schoolboy knows the Jews are a tribe. Every schoolboy knows the Germans are a tribe. The Nazis, a subset of the German tribe, subjected the Jewish tribe to mass murder via gas chambers. Every schoolboy knows that, too. Inasmuch as “tribe” is just another word for race, the Nazis were racist against the Jews. Sure, the Nazis treated fellow Germans and other Europeans shabbily, too. They just weren’t racist about it.

Decent human beings do not conflate complexion and race. One tribe can in fact perpetrate a racist atrocity against another tribe even if the two tribes share the same skin color. Conversely, one tribe cannot fall victim to a racist atrocity, no matter the skin color of the other tribe. Ben Philippe, a Black English instructor at Barnard College, has brought this peculiar phenomenon to the fore. In a segment of his book entitled Sure, I’ll be your Black Friend, he matter-of-factly describes a scene in which he gasses White people:

“When this race war hits its crescendo, I’ll gather you all into a beautifully decorated room under the pretense of unity. I’ll give a speech to civility and all the good times we share; I’ll smile as we raise glasses to your good, White health, while the detonator blinks under the table, knowing the exits are locked and the air vents filled with gas.”

Philippe discusses his fantasized comeuppance in an interview with Canadian radio host Talia Schlanger. The impossibly telegenic Dutch political analyst Eva Vlaardingerbroek provides audio link to the interview and commentary on the exchange.

In the link, you can hear Ms. Schlanger taken aback by the passage and asking him about it. He does not falter in his explanation:

“I guess I was wrestling with the question that, isn’t the result of that, all-out warfare, like, Game of Thrones-style warfare? And what does that look like? And I live in that sort of stray thought for a few pages. And it was disturbing to write, too. Because I’m not a violent person.” Giggling, he hastens to add, “I love all my White friends.”

That’s how we know he’s not a violent person. He has a sense of humor and only wants to gas White people who are strangers.

Ms. Schlanger informs Mr. Philippe her grandparents were Holocaust survivors. “I can’t tell you how it felt to read that sentiment. And I wanted to say to you that I’m sorry that your experience of the world made you feel that way.”

She’s sorry he feels that way? Would Ms. Schlanger feel sorry for a present-day Nazi who fantasized about gassing Jews? Did the historical Nazis have an “experience of the world” that made them “feel that way” about gassing Jews? The exchange leaves Ms. Vlaardingerbroek dumbfounded. She seems to think the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors would push back against a Black man who dreams of perpetrating such an act against White people. Maybe even push back hard.

As if Jews are Whites. Ms. Vlaardingerbroek, please report to your local Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity (DIE) re-education camp. Take two weeks off. Reflect on the hurt you have caused.

Meanwhile, her insensitivity toward the Jewish people notwithstanding, it occurs to our Dutch correspondent that visceral hatred of Whites has entered the mainstream. “Where are we headed?” she asks. Nowhere good, Ms. Vlaardingerbroek. At least not until our people embrace the same racial consciousness and solidarity long nurtured and taken for granted by our presumed betters.

Let us not apologize for it. Self-preservation is the first instinct of the species.

Tony Pivetta is a longtime pension analyst forced into early semi-retirement by his erstwhile employer’s demand he submit to a highly experimental vaccine that prevents neither infection nor transmission. He spends his now ample spare time contemplating the chief mystery of the post-Christian West—namely, how do so many otherwise decent and reasoning human beings manage to invoke bodily autonomy when it comes to the thorny baby-killing issue even as they reject it in slam-dunk applications like drug use, seatbelt choice, and vaccine refusal? A disaffected baseball fan, Pivetta still pines for the cozy confines of late and unlamented Tiger Stadium. He can’t help but draw dark parallels between the rise of publicly financed stadiums and the demise of both the Grand Old Game and Western Civilization.

    There is no escaping deadly conflict — not even in peace time: especially not in the faux “peacetime” represented by the vast majority of civilizations. The only question worthy of we who aspire to the estate of The Moral Animal is what artificial selection should culture: What do we operationally define as eugenic? Beating around the bush about this only extends the time during which “peacetime” is gains ground against The Moral Animal.

      …” we who aspire to the estate of The Moral Animal “…

      “The Moral Animal” has no significance apart from its morally intended actual goal or end .

      A [ moral code ] has no relevance other than its utility in achieving a particular goal or implied end .

      Morals ( rules governing human behavior ) only pertain to organized groups of people whom have an explicit or implied collective goal or end .

      Obviously , disparate collectives
      ( such as families , tribes , nation states , corporations , et al ) engage in “deadly conflict” over scarce existential resources .

      These three political groups/collectives are the major agencies of the global oligarchy formed by a cabalistic cartel for world dominion :

      The Catholic collective ( aka church ) has the basic goal of subsuming humanity , via church population growth in particular , to its presumed spiritual global monopoly based mostly on universalism .

      The British monarchy ( aka The Royals ) collective has the basic goal of subsuming humanity to a socio-political global monopoly based primarily on monarchism .

      The Ashkenazi financial tribe ( aka The Rothschilds ) collective has the basic goal of establishing a monetary global monopoly based primarily on the technological supremacy of financialism .

      Obviously ,
      herd eugenics is a major concern of owners of animals ( such as horses , sheep , cattle , et al ) . Likewise , herd eugenics is a major concern of the predatory global oligarchy owner of the prey sheeple herds around the world .

      Regarding nature as the primordial basis of human being , since when did predatory wolves concern themselves with the eugenics of their prey sheep ?

    Tony, thank you for your thoughts on thought crime. Also, I extend my congratulations to you for standing up to your employer on the vax, and I hope you are managing your new financial circumstances.

    Regarding your question about why “so many otherwise decent and reasoning human beings” have succumbed to vaccine mandates, it’s not actually a big mystery at all. As long as 100 years ago, big thinkers (including Adolf Hitler) wrote and spoke about how all you need to do to control the masses is to control the messages they are receiving. As I understand it, it’s one of the reasons AH didn’t think democracy could work – and it’s also why propagandists like Edward Bernays were so keen on promoting the democratic system.

    Now that you have lived through all the lying about covid, and have some free time on your hands, you might want to take another look at the post-WWII narrative we were all force-fed growing up in the West. If you’d told a younger version of myself that I would one day be a “Holocaust denier,” I would not have believed you. Having “done my own research” on that era (as so many of us have had to do with regards the jab) I now wonder how I was ever fooled into believing the Germans, of all people, would do what they are accused of doing to the Jews.

      Anne, I understand the power of propaganda. I just don’t understand people’s ability to keep logically interrelated concepts in separate, watertight compartments of their brain. Some of the same people who invoke “my body, my choice” when it comes to abortion somehow manage to support mandates when it comes to vaccines.

      Since abortion arguably involves the destruction of a non-consenting party, namely, the fetus, I should think applying the “my body, my choice” principle to abortion *a fortiori* means it applies to vaccines. Abortion eliminates the fetus. What threat does an unvaxxed person pose to an vaxxed person if the vaxx works?

      I agree with you on the Holocaust. In my view, the orthodox account qualifies as hate speech directed at Germans and all Europeans, really. Instead, we have European governments treating revisionist accounts as hate speech against Jews. Europeans aren’t permitted to defend themselves against this blood libel.

        Anne C says:

        Sorry I misconstrued your understanding of the Holocaust mythology, Tony. I sometimes miss it when someone is speaking/writing “tongue in cheek.”

        Regarding “people’s ability to keep logically interrelated concepts in separate, watertight compartments of their brain” … you’ve answered your own question, in a way. I have struggled with this same riddle since the beginning of the plandemic, and I’ve come to accept that “logic” will not save us.

        I’m really not qualified to explain what’s going on, but since I’ve spent so much time thinking about it, I’ll offer my thoughts for what it’s worth.

        Firstly, back to the “marketing/propaganda” factor: It’s too easy to underestimate how powerful marketing and propaganda can actually be – especially if you’re half-way intelligent! We’ve all met salespeople (car salesmen and real estate agents come to mind) who are not the sharpest tools in the shed, yet they manage to make money hand-over-fist out of the rest of us. Why? Because they have a good handle on human psychology… and they aren’t above using that handle to crank some bucks out of our pockets and into theirs.

        Secondly, “educated” people are not necessarily intelligent. Our academic institutions have been under assault for at least decades, and the result is that our intelligentsia has been terribly corrupted. Stupid “educated” people who think they are smart are a dangerous lot.

        Thirdly, on a certain level, even someone who is normally intelligent enough to follow the arguments you are making still has an “instinctive” sense of where the real power lies. I think many people are simply terrified of acknowledging that all the institutions they have put their faith in for their entire lives are actually trying to kill them. It’s too big to deal with, so they just ape the three little monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

        Finally, the best explanation I’ve heard for why people are buying the vaccine narrative is one I heard from a young woman on some social media platform: the reaction to covid has nothing to do with intelligence or education, and everything to do with Level of Consciousness.

        One last thought: “My Body, My Choice” was always a slogan, not a logical construct. What it really translates into is “I’ll take all the power associated with being a Woman, but none of the responsibilities.”

          … “” “logic” will not save us. “”

          …” logic will not save us.”

          That is true in respect of the fantastical faith-based salvation offered by Christianity .

          Otherwise , it is at best a superficial assertion and at worst grossly misleading as a generalization .

          Fundamental Aristotelian logic manifest in the boolean circuits of all computerized electronics worldwide is now and will always be indispensable to the survival of humanity with or without evolution .

          However , valid logic is not affected by emotion and has no intrinsic emotive power since its purpose is to enlighten , by deductions or inductions , pathways to desirable normal human goals that may be small or big and immediate or distant .

          Reasonings ( aka rationalizations ) are often known to be the “slaves of emotions” because not all reasonings are logicly valid . Unfortunately , emotionalism that is necessary to empower achievement of goals , but is not properly guided by logicly valid reasonings , have more often than not resulted in detrimental and sometimes even historicly catastrophic ends for the peoples involved .

          The fact that we can send and receive vital communications electronicly is in every instance empirical confirmation of the validity and utility of logic and of a beneficial result of properly guided emotionalism .

          Clearly , logic is now essential for the survival of humanity even though it has no intrinsic emotive power .

        If the vaccine gave total protection, the vaxxed should not care about the unvaxxed. On the other hand, if it was halfway effective in providing protection against the disease and reducing contagiousness, then you could be excused for thinking that general vaccination is a good policy and that the anti-vaxxers are a problem. But it seems the actual effectiveness is very low, especially with the new variants.

    Jew “artist” caught lying simply through analysis of monitoring technology. (An oh so rare exception to convict these pathological liars, who made sure 80 years ago in Auschwitz that the investigation of the truth itself is “punishable”! Thus they tied the deadliest rope for the hated white race.) “False” in quotation marks, to ironize the phrase “false antisemitism claim” as a fundamental impossibility or inconsistency. So indicative the demonstrations “against antisemitism” after the incident, like a dumb bunch of alarmed chickens triggered right on cue, which show what masses of useful idiots Jews are able to mobilize. https://www.dw.com/en/germany-jewish-musician-charged-over-false-antisemitism-claim/a-61320723

    This millionth (billionth?) example of raging hatred in the heart of blacks as a ¨people¨ for whites should, I say…SHOULD! profoundly wake whites from their seeming drugged lethargy. It should do so even if the counterfactual that whites have done some harm or injustice to this race. But just the opposite is true, whites have done incalculable good to this massively ungrateful people not the least of which is bearing their past and present and increasingly fierce, both vocal and physical, enmity. I have always believed that the greatest crime, the greatest sin a human can commit is to repay good with evil. This logically applies to a group, tribe, or race of people. Blacks, while not alone in this evil of non-whites, are clearly the most demented and depraved in this regard. I also believe such evil invites a curse on them. I hope for just such a just judgment to fall upon them.

      Agree wholeheartedly. It seems that the relationship between whites and blacks, especially in the US, is a toxically dysfunctional one. The more whites give and do for blacks, the angrier and more demanding blacks get. And liberal whites are like enabling parents who instead of teaching their children to be responsible for their actions and cultivating a sense of gratitude, they overempathize with them, encourage them to be self-pitying, and encourage them to blame others for their misdeeds and inability to succeed. Have you noticed that the further away in time we move from the Atlantic slave trade, the more current blacks act like THEY are slaves and that whites in the present are slave-masters? Their incessant whining is testament to the fact that they are being utterly coddled. The reality is that things have never been better for blacks in the Western world and that their attitudes reflect their sense of entitlement and the privileged position they now occupy. Short-sighted sanctimonious white liberals have a lot of blood on their hands.

    “one tribe cannot fall victim to a racist atrocity, no matter the skin color of the other tribe”

    That’s how it works in the media, in the courts and in mainstream politics: White people cannot be recognized as victims of other races, and Jews cannot be recognized as persecutors of other races. Until recently, that was not an official rule. For example, the law doesn’t say that White people have an inferior status. The courts have to resort to selective enforcement of the laws to achieve that result. Likewise, politicians who advocate for non-White interests and ignore White people’s interests would rather not say that they follow a hidden deliberately anti-White rule.
    Many White leftists have internalized the unofficial anti-White rule. They systematically take sides against their own racial group in the name of racial justice. But most of them would stop doing so if it became official that the objective of the government and the media is to destroy White people.
    Meanwhile, some non-Whites in the media have become more and more open and explicit about their anti-White feelings. They want us dead, and they would like to make it official. I think it will lead to more persecution of White people, but the anti-White left is also going to lose a lot of support from former White leftists.

      I hope you’re right. The anti-White racism is turning white-hot–as the Jewish paleo-libertarian writer Ilana Mercer has herself noted.
