Do Not Look Away From Evil

The elite left are stuck with how to set the narrative on anti-Asian crime:

“As Zaid Jilani explained last week, the official media story about these anti-Asian hate crimes is that they are instances of white supremacy. “If you thumb through news articles from the past few days or read over statements from leading politicians, you’d imagine that the Ku Klux Klan is responsible for the spree of robberies, assaults and murders of Asian-Americans across the nation. The phrase ‘white supremacy’ is used repeatedly,” he wrote. “This narrative is pervasive, but it bears no relationship to the evidence before us. Not only are none of the high-profile attackers over the past few months white supremacists, many of them aren’t even white.”

The first step to stopping Anti-Asian hate is to see it clearly.

Is The Left On The Cusp Of Permanent Triumph, Or Is It Committing Suicide?

They believe it’s a triumph, but they’re going to destroy themselves in the end.

—–

If you think that cancel culture and social media deplatforming have
gotten out of hand, you should know that those are only two examples
of many strategies that the fascist left deploys to enforce its
political orthodoxy.

Another such strategy, currently sweeping the country, takes coercive
suppression of dissent to a whole new level. The model here comes
straight out of the old Soviet Union’s playbook: use control over
institutions to demand a continuous series of expressions of loyalty
to the orthodoxy, and then to destroy the livelihood and career of
anyone who refuses to comply.

This latest strategy, which has emerged at academic institutions, is
to make so-called “antiracism” or Critical Race Theory or Social
Justice training into a required course of study. Or better still, to
make such training not only a single required course on its own, but
also something integrated as a significant component into multiple
courses, or even into every course. Then, have the course grades and
evaluations be determined not just by the mastery of, say, calculus,
but instead or also by the demonstrated willingness of the student to
regurgitate and swear loyalty to the “antiracism” or Critical Race
Theory or Social Justice orthodoxy. Fail to show sufficient enthusiasm as (for example) an “antiracist,” and you get humiliated in class, you receive grades of D or F in your courses, and finally
you get labeled as a “racist” to all potential graduate schools and
future employers.

The more I read about this, the more I am astounded at how far the
strategy has progressed before many normal people realized what was
happening or began to push back. The question is, is this really a strategy by which the left can achieve its final triumph, or are the left and the institutions in question in the process of committing suicide?

‘White liberals are a scourge’: New Austin residents are apparently turning to police to tackle the ‘toxic display of masculinity’ that is black and Latino car clubs

This is Austin, the haven and shiny city on the hill for the left, where the white left’s true racism exposes itself.

Just Call it Envy & Greed

The current white supremacy and the aggrieved feelings against the white folks is pure and simple: envy and greed.

Do I know that the white folks have it easier in a general sense because America is still predominantly white? And that the culture has skewed that way since our founding? Of course. When I look at the ones doing well, with multigenerational wealth and families spread out and thriving and not having to worry about cultural or racial frictions and misunderstandings, of course.

But do I begrudge them their advantage? No.

Why? Because I don’t envy or have greed for the advantages they have simply for being born white. It’s not anyone’s fault their born into the family they are. We all are just here by God’s Grace, and we each have easier or more challenging lives as has been ordained by God.

There’s no point wasting time harboring resentment and anger and envy against what they have and what we don’t have. There’s much fault in our country, but the opportunity to pursue life in our own terms, by our own initiative is truly special.

I’m not saying an Asian immigrant has an easy road, or a Black person from a history of generational welfare in the slums doesn’t have to work harder to get to zero. And I’m not saying it’s wrong for us collectively as a people or government to provide a leg up to get even.

But, the current way isn’t it. People think that by calling out “systemic” or “institutional” racism, or labeling any privilege by white people as white supremacy, or viewing every negative interracial interaction as proof of the white man holding the minority down, or calling out minority’s own racism as internalized white racism is helping to win hearts and minds. It doesn’t.

In fact, by stratifying a once fairly cohesive society that had some real hard challenges into segregated victim groups with the white man as the only oppressor, it’s reversing all the gains made since the civil rights movement of the 1960’s.

As a Christian, I believe in objective absolute truth. We need to come back to an agreement that there is a measurable standard, instead of everyone having their own “lived experiences.” This is just a slippery way of saying, “What I feel trumps whatever truth or facts you present.” And people spouting that may feel good they won the argument, but they’re just hurting themselves by detaching their belief from reality.

One last thing: a big reason I don’t begrudge white folks is because I know there are many many of them who are also just struggling, trying to live day to day. They’ve never had the privilege of white privilege. Some are new immigrants to this country, and have no history with our slavery history. And others, who’ve been here decades and generations have always just struggled. This is the human condition, and they need help just as much as any other person, white or not.
