Gradually, Then Suddenly

Gradually, Then Suddenly. By Jim Goad.

Well, it’s happening. The shit’s going down. If the world isn’t ending, at least the one we knew passed away about a month ago. …

This will not be like the Civil War, where at least you had a neat geographical dividing line.

Geographically, it’s going to be mostly urban versus rural. A county-by-county red-and-blue map of the 2016 presidential election would be a good way to understand how this particular balloon is going to pop. The red has a lot more land and a lot more whites and a lot more guns. The blue has a lot more institutional and financial power and a lot more nonwhites.

The left’s political strategy to obtain power, adopted after abandoning the working class around 1990, is to get the votes of all minority groups, to build a “coalition of the fringes”. But it does this by demonizing whites, promising the other groups spoils, and playing up racial divisions. It turned its back on color-blind, and instead embraced discrimination. It has tribalized the West. The resulting slow-motion train-wreck is inevitable:

And I hate to break this to you, but this is a race war. It’s not Republicans versus Democrats, East versus West, individualism versus collectivism, Christians versus atheists, or any of the things they’re trying to say it’s about. It’s a race war.

Why? Because the war’s official rallying cry starts with the word “Black.” This isn’t Blue versus Grey. This is White versus Everyone Else.

I didn’t want a race war. No one I know did. But one has obviously been declared.

I didn’t want to be right about all this.

Just as everyone knows they’re going to die but kind of has to pretend they aren’t just so they can get out of bed in the morning, I knew this was coming but I tried to pretend it would happen after I died.

And now it’s here. So what do you do?

Do you shut up? Doesn’t work anymore. Even “white silence is violence” now. First, they made it so that every word out of your mouth is “hate speech.” Now it’s “hate speech” even if you don’t say anything.

They aren’t making it easy, are they?

It’s hard not to snap when you see video after video after video after video after video after video after video after video after video of black people stomping and beating and thrashing and kicking and mobbing whites of every age — and laughing merrily while doing it — while the media stubbornly ignores it all, cherry-picks statistically rare events of alleged black victimization, and amplifies them beyond all resemblance to statistical reality.

And amid all this taunting and gaslighting, when someone who probably already had mental issues finally snaps and does something violent, they’ll say…

“See? Told you.” ….

If there’s anything positive to come out of the past month, we may have finally seen the death of the ludicrous idea that race doesn’t exist — and especially that whiteness doesn’t exist.

Telling us what he really thinks.
