This is Philip Wyeth, author of “Chasing the Best Days,” “Reparations USA,” and “Reparations Mind.”
Here at the car dealership where my truck is being repaired, the waiting area is filled with foreign-born people all speaking in their native tongue. One wonders at the infrastructure that was put in place to bombard Los Angeles, and most metropolitan areas it seems, with all these incongruous people.
Back in my home state of Virginia 3000 miles away, the never-ending saga of white/black race relations plays out its latest ineffectual act. It’s got all the platitudes and pandering and righteous posturing we’ve seen before, but which get everyone nowhere—meanwhile another million fresh arrivals to our country, who have no skin in this came, merrily put down their own roots.
Which makes me ask, if any alliance is to be made among heritage white and black Americans, is it a reactionary response to being thrown under the bus by our government, which allowed the so-called melting pot to be overwhelmed by too many new ingredients and random spices?
And if the race hustlers, hate-crime hoaxers, and self-flagellating Leftists won’t even allow us to notice this demographic change happening under our feet, then I suspect that the next reaction will be to channel our yearning need for meaning into a reluctant shedding of our American identity, and in its place return to being European and African.
Any such trend toward ancestral awareness, or even allegiance, would fall firmly at the feet of both government and business. It’s galling to think how casually their short-sighted materialism enabled them to sell out our country’s soul in order to accommodate millions of other nations’ citizens. Now after weathering endless wars, economic collapses, and a mass media propaganda machine that seeks to demoralize us, we Americans are exhausted and fighting for scraps here in this lowest-common-denominator nightmare of subsistence click-bait farming.
We’re so stunted and scatterbrained to the point that maybe there won’t be many more great inventions. No more great striving to create insightful or uplifting art. And certainly no taking inspiration from the great deeds of the past. Why? Because our ancestors didn’t do everything perfectly every time everywhere.
Instead street tacos are elevated to the level of cuisine on Yelp. Sports have lost their status as a “safe space” away from politics. And before judging someone by the content of their character, you must also take into consideration their sob story, or the concavity of their crotch.
The spirit of what made America functionally great—striving for excellence, merit, lofty goals—is being crushed and extinguished in favor of creating a docile monochrome population that sits and shops rather than scales mountains. Zombies who use technology not to further unlock nature’s secrets, but to indulge the Seven Deadly Sins—and sprinkle a little self-entitled grievance on top for good measure.
Picture a small device in your house, such as a coffee maker or electric toothbrush. Think about all the micro-innovations that went into the process of creating the model you purchased. Countless hours spent testing and tweaking the components, all adding to the large repository of knowledge that is later applied to an improved version or another new product altogether.
This is what we in America perfected in the post-WWII boom years—and now risk just throwing away because, what? We’ve saturated the world with technology and home goods, so now the next great messianic dream is to end all conflict and perceived inequity by merging all races into one pigment?
But that’s not how it will play out. Already this new Democrat freshman class is showing the plan: that we will always have to look at each and every thing through the prism of race, class, religion, and ethnic homeland. Like a jeweler holding up his loop to inspect a diamond’s features and noting its flaws, now we too will look at the new Oral-B rotating head electric toothbrush and demand to know: how many women of color were on the team that crafted the motor?
Because we are not free to look up or forward anymore. The Kurt Vonnegut story “Harrison Bergeron,” with its Handicapper General making everyone equal, has become a mental reality.
Our imported problems like Ilhan Omar are here to bite clean through our ankles, rather than fix the countries their own families ran away from. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the vanguard of people who run their mouths to beat an opponent into submission to get what they want, rather than doing the work of quiet introspection that envisions how to solve the problem of morphing clunky DOS-prompt computers into the elegant, handheld smartphones we use today.
So the fork in the road isn’t just about skin color or gender. It’s about having the courage to stand up to people who want to hold a society hostage. Because as we’ve seen especially in the past month, no amount of capitulation or concessions to the Left-wing mob is ever enough. Whether you never opened your mouth but wore the wrong hat, or spent a political career pandering to them, one day that locust swarm will surely come for you.
To keep our self-respect and finally defeat them, from now on just say to them over and over again: no, no… no!
