White Guilt and Free Drinks at a Portland Happy Hour

This is Philip Wyeth. Looks like the hits keep on coming. Here we have an article from the New York Times, “Reparations Happy Hour Invites White people to Pay for Drinks.” And of course, this takes place in Portland, Oregon, where I had the fortune or misfortune of living for almost three years.

“In Portland, Oregon, organizers of the Reparations happy hour invited black, brown, and indigenous people to a bar and handed them $10 bills as they arrived. A small but symbolic gift, mostly funded by white people who were asked not to attend.”

That’s incredible. The $10 bill has Alexander Hamilton’s face, by the way. Is that intentional? Ironic? I have no idea. Okay, so “Brown Hope, a local activist organization, wanted the event to be a space for people of color in a mostly white city to meet one another, discuss policy issues, and plan potential action.”

Now, I just love these liberal newspapers… “While it was far from the full scale reparations sought by some as penance for the horrors of slavery and continuing racial injustice, Cameron Whitten, the 27-year-old activist who organized the event, said there was one similarity. It made attendees feel as if their pain were valued and understood.”

I love these titles, activist, progressive, advocate. That’s all the Left has is these buzz words. Here’s a quote, “It was only $10, but when I saw them I saw their eyes light up. What I saw there was that people felt like they were finally seen.” And here’s the thing, “I saw their eyes light up,” this patronizing, pretentious… like you’re talking… you’re putting hope into the mind of a four-year-old child or something.

And here’s a tweet by Cameron, this is incredible. “People of color are POWERFUL. Amazing turnout at Brown Hope’s inaugural reparations happy hour event.” Okay, that phrase, “people of color are powerful.” Maybe. Maybe they are. Maybe they aren’t. I don’t know. But the point is that isn’t an argument.

And this goes back to what I said in my last video discussing my two books, “Reparations USA” and “Reparations Mind,” how the Left is essentially just a middle school pep rally. Rah rah rah rah. “You’re great.” “You’re so great.” “No, you’re great!!!” That doesn’t mean anything. You have no ideas, you have no arguments, you’re just patting each other on the back.

Okay, so Mr. Witten said “he hoped the event, in addition to building community”–another completely meaningless phrase–“building community, would call attention to the reparations the concept that black people should be financially compensated for generations of trauma that preceded them.”

See, my books are maybe not as ridiculous as some people would think, because these events right now… Like today it’s a happy hour, 2018… What’s gonna happen in 2020? What’s the next thing? There’s already been a photograph I saw of people basically what wearing chains and holding signs saying I’m sorry, and being led by black people in the streets.

This self-flagellation by white people, where does it end? So maybe my books, which take place in 2028, under the premise that in 2024 a female Chinese American president gets elected, because of a Reparations platform, and then it’s implemented at 2025, how off base am I, really? Maybe some of the finer details, and the fact that I wrote it as a dystopian satire, but here’s the main problem we’re going to encounter, because it’s going to require a surveillance state. Or the surveillance state is already here and will be harnessed to dole out reparations. In my books you have everyday people of all races caught between the crossfire of idealism and technology.

Scrolling down the article, “Ron Daniels president of the Institute of the Black World 21st Century, a group that supports reparations, said they would be necessary for America to fully heal itself.” Another completely meaningless catch phrase. “Any efforts to bring attention to the idea, including a happy hour bearing that name in Portland, could help people organize around the issue–” Organize, another great throwaway word–“hopefully out of that experience there’s some education that takes place.” Education, what does that mean? A word without context.

This is amazing, this is how the Left is just gonna cannibalize itself. So “there was enough interest in the concept to fund occasional happy hours for the rest of the year, though they will be renamed Reparations Power Hour out of concern that the happy hour label was unwelcoming to people who do not drink.”This is glorious! Beautiful Leftist insanity! Happy hour? No, it’s a Power Hour. Why? Because it’s unwelcoming to people who don’t drink!

“Anticipating some criticism, he noted that it was not meant to diminish the seriousness of reparations. Should anyone question why white people were not invited, he said they’d show up by donating to make sure the event happens.

The final quote from Mr. Witten, “White people, we have love for you and we’re going to see you. We can’t not see you. Once a month we’re going to have these two special hours that we cannot get anywhere else.” That’s just… We can’t not see you. Can you imagine if a white person dared to say that about any other race? He would be mocked, pilloried, everything. But here, New York Times, because they have an agenda, this story, a happy hour, gets put in the New York Times, gets linked by Drudge, millions of people see it.

Also of note, in that tweet there were a couple responses. A guy named Christopher Thomas, who’s black, says, “It’s silly for black folks to show up to have drinks paid for, when we should be focused on group economics. Banking black, business development, investing, and generational wealth. Those drinks are not going to ensure that your children have a future.”

And then Sue Kelsey, aging white lady, “It is a step in the right direction. Need to start somewhere.” That is the problem with people on the Left, who just feel like we have to do something, so even though it’s a completely meaningless, ineffective thing, you can say, “We’re starting, we’re starting, we’re taking steps.”

Christopher Thomas makes a nice reply, “It’s factually a step in the wrong direction. Don’t reply to me with zero understanding of the history of black folks in America. We empower ourselves by aggregating our money, not sitting around, being around laughing and getting free drinks.”

And if you look at the picture more closely from this tweet of the people of event, you have two women kneeling, holding hands almost in an Asian pose. Didn’t a white high school girl take flack last month for wearing a Chinese prom dress and assuming the position? Is that not cultural appropriation by these women of color? Or maybe we need a mobile DNA test to see who’s allowed to do what at what times?

You know, the truth is I, like most white people, we probably don’t even care if you want to have an event, social event do what you want. Take any kind of zany, silly photos you want. The problem is it’s the people on the Left who are buzzing around everything like gnats. You’re forcing us to “get involved,” and you’re not gonna like what we have to say.

As Alex from the channel “These Things I Believe” talked about in a recent livestream, what are we going to do about all the people who were born 100 or 125 years ago, who were cryogenically frozen in the past, how racist are they by modern standards? Should we really allow them to spew their hatred after we find a cure for their illnesses? Alex thinks we’d be better off thawing them out right now and letting them rot in the Arizona sun.

So look at what you on the Left are bringing into reality. White guys who just want to be left alone are now entering the fray, taking your stupid arguments to their logical or illogical end points, because apparently we have to rub your noses in it for you to understand. If so-called progressives are even capable of nuance, metaphor, or god forbid, humor.

So I’m just gonna wrap this up by saying if you want to have social events and push your political agenda forward, that’s fine, do whatever you want. But take the eagle’s view for a minute and think about the demographic shifts in this country going on right now. The Latino population in particular is much larger than it was 10 to 20 years ago, and it’s only getting bigger. They don’t have any white guilt.

What are you gonna do, if you’re calling for reparations, when say, 10, 15, or 20 years from now, Latinos have a lot of political power and they have no white guilt? They are not gonna listen to your cries for Reparations. Yeah, so maybe you have 5-10 years to extract as much money, guilt, and public displays of humiliation by liberal white people before this all ends.

But I do want to say that my two books, they’re not as incendiary as maybe you would think, and I have characters of all races who are very sympathetic. And I actually have created a religion in the book called Modestianity, which essentially addresses some of the bigger existential and spiritual problems we are all facing.

And I’m really trying to offer a constructive way forward out of this malaise we’re in. Because with outsourcing, AI, potential of UBI, people are gonna have nothing to do. And if we have no spiritual values, no religion, and the surveillance state is our future… It’s just going to be everybody playing gotcha, trying to dig some dirt up on each other, and humiliate each other online. Is that really the future we want?

And that’s why I’m really suspect of this Reparations push or sentiment, because it’s only going to lead to more revenge and anger. It’s not going to build bridges and heal, like all these buzzwords talk about.

If you’re interested, read my books. The first one’s free as an e-book on iTunes and Barnes and Noble. You can see that I am trying to push through the current day malaise and really try to find a constructive solution, or at least philosophical ideas to help us get past the sniping and urges for revenge.

Because the elites, they’re all just laughing at us, they love for us to fight and not get along. Thanks for listening.

Conniving Change Agents of the Caramel Utopia

This is Philip Wyeth. The Left believes that it’s on a righteous crusade. A frantic mission driven by the historical narrative in their heads, and which silently guides them to heroically eradicate racism and oppression by intermixing and diluting all the races.

Under the cover of buzzwords like tolerance, inclusiveness, privilege… this army of change agents first goes about its stealth agenda by importing people from all over the world. Different cultures, different colors, different religions, different habits and beliefs.

But naturally, all the various groups are going to want to stick to their own kind, so step two of the plan employs the power of the educational system and the media. By day you immerse the children of immigrants into Democrat indoctrination centers, where teacher-zealots work in lockstep to erode family values and influence. Then after school, pop culture and Hollywood subversion fill in the gaps.

It’s all part of an unspoken brainwashing program to achieve the dream of some worldwide Utopian future which might best be described by paraphrasing the old blues song, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer.” Something like, one skin tone, no god, and one leader.

The crucial point I have to stress when discussing issues like this—because people on the Left are so disingenuous or obtuse that they always take things out of context—is the distinction between natural processes and those driven by agendas. If people of different races and backgrounds get together organically, that is perfectly fine and how it should be—that’s the flow of life.

But for progressives to implant their ideas by stealth, and when you catch them, they raise their hands innocently, “Who, me?” That’s what I can’t stand. If your beliefs are so great, then you should be able to advertise them and stand by them proudly.

But instead, people who notice the disproportionate number of commercials and ads that show mixed-race couples where the man is black and the woman is white—we take the criticism and have dumb questions spit-balled at us, like, “What, you don’t think there should be interracial marriage?”

That is not the point at all! The issue is that there’s this army of sleeper agents who have been indoctrinated to seize every opportunity to pepper the world with Leftism. You know, each day, innocently add a sprinkle here and there as you go about your routine.

And worst of all, unlike people who get in your face to preach their religion, Leftists will deny that they’re doing anything explicit, and simply claim to be on the side of what’s right, progress, change.

I just want them to admit that yes, they do have an agenda, and every day they subconsciously work to serve it. It’s the secrecy and plausible deniability that has to go. You get caught manipulating society and then play dumb—but if your cause is so sacred, it’s saving the world from violence and ignorance and discrimination through… let’s call it “a melting pot destiny”… then stand up and proclaim it!

Be proud. Don’t cower from the truth of what you’re doing. Because otherwise you’re not part of the righteous underground—you’re collaborators too afraid to stand in the spotlight, let alone take a bullet for the cause which allegedly will end bigotry once and for all.

But of course, you have to do it this way. No one in their right mind would relinquish their religion, their heritage, their culture, their language in the name of a philosophy whose ideas killed over a hundred million people last century.

Being exposed like this is why the Left seems to be racing against the clock. And ruthless in their tactics. Got to shut down the YouTube channel or Twitter account of anyone who can articulate why they disagree with their Caramel Utopia.

So-called progressives never thought that social media platforms, which they dreamed, like some NPR platitude, were “working to build bridges across cultures,” would in fact be used to repair or reassert the importance of walls. Because maybe there’s wisdom in “good fences make good neighbors”—and more sensible than letting Leftist tanks and a million unvetted refugees roll across those bridges into our backyard without any plan for accommodation or assimilation.

The Left is cracking up because everything had been going so well for so long. Got their black president Obama in there, had true believers like Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel carrying the party’s water. But along the way, the Democrats kept losing governorships and Congressional seats. Then phenomena like Gamergate happened and the social tide began to turn. They got blindsided on election night 2016 and it still haven’t recovered.

So these people who live for checkbox milestones, like first female this or that, they see the upcoming midterm election as their D-Day. Of course we’re the literal Nazis in that passion play, so “by any means necessary” is the motto that will justify anything they might do to subvert conservatives.

Because their old haughty confidence, the matter-of-fact sense of inevitability, has been replaced by a vicious snarl—dangerous not because it’s trained and refined, but because it’s desperate.

They’ve lost sight of the goal. They lash out at allies who merely acknowledge the existence of the Democrat plantation, let alone dare to leave it. Even non-political people who make the mistake of wearing the wrong dress end up facing the wrath of their digital firing squad.

And here’s the lesson to be learned: When the veneer falls away in times of stress, conformists do not cooperate. It’s every non-gendered pronoun for zhitself, scrambling like rats for something solid as they drown in a sea of conflicting beliefs.

I’ll be here to keep tabs on the hypocritical Left’s dance of death as the election approaches. If you want to support me, buy my books Reparations USA and Reparations Mind on iTunes or Amazon. Also please subscribe to this channel. Thanks for listening.

Do Guatemalans Dream of the Gettysburg Address?

This is Philip Wyeth. Another Philip, one much more famous than me, once asked, “Do androids dream of electric sheep?” I’m going to paraphrase Philip K. Dick’s question to talk about the challenges we face after having taken in so many “new Americans” over the past twenty years.

Do Armenian immigrants learn about the old Jim Crow laws? Will Guatemalans from the migrant caravan study the Gettysburg Address? Can you convince an Indian working in Silicon Valley to take interest in the American Indian Wars?

This all may sound like hyperbole, or me trying to be cute, but what I’m driving at is the stark difference between America’s past and its future. A few days ago I dropped in at the local cigar shop to relax and get some writing done. Some regulars dropped in and started talking politics—at times things got heated, but these guys all know each other and honestly this is the kind of healthy debate I think people are starved for now that we only talk to each other through apps on our devices.

Most of the group was anti-Trump—not shocking since we’re in Los Angeles—but a couple of the guys were conservative and did their best to fend off the sometimes haughty questions the liberals were asking.

But the most interesting dynamic for me, and which leads back to the beginning of this talk, was a Jewish man in his seventies and a black man who was in his fifties or sixties. They both see the world through the prism of 1960s civil rights activism, and America’s legacy of slavery and racial discrimination.

There’s nothing wrong with that viewpoint in and of itself, but what they seem to miss is that so much has changed in just this century, that the old narratives don’t hold up anymore. Consider how these three concepts embody the change:

-The massive immigration with seemingly no rhyme or reason, and no consideration for the implications of assimilation or lack thereof, as well as demographic change. As Ann Coulter once pointed out to an audience of Latino students, who were not happy to hear her say it—America up until recently was once not multi-cultural, but biracial.

-Point two, a nationwide loss of wealth due to deindustrialization and several market collapses—with the surreal caveat being that instead of bread lines we all get to drink craft beer and eat organic food.

-And third, decentralization of narratives due to the internet. On the negative side is the disintegration of a national storyline and identity, but up for grabs is a more truthful tale, and perhaps some idealistic results—like internet flashmobs being able to prevent wars based on false pretenses.

So these old timers at the cigar shop, they don’t know about memes. They advocate for all kinds of immigration because they think it will help defeat lingering white racism—but at what point does this dilute the fabric of the country? They want one thing—racial justice—but the tools they’re using—massive immigration—could give us all an existential crisis.

Having lived in Los Angeles for many years and met people from all over the world—some I even do business with, so don’t try and pigeonhole me, please—but I can tell you that their primary motivation for coming here is to get away from repressive regimes or extreme poverty. Yes, they come here for a better life, as the talking point goes, but Americans on both sides of the aisle are deluding themselves if they think that many immigrants will study up on the Federalist Papers or the Dred Scott decision.

Maybe these things shouldn’t be on their radar, who knows? The great experiment of high-speed internet and touchscreens is what’s going on right now. Putting smartphones into the hands of people in the Third World can be like a world warp for their communities, and do far more than any “feed the children” infomercial on TV. Maybe it’s better if we’re all mentally free to take part in this technology free-for-all, without all the baggage or being tethered to the latest handful of new Abe Lincoln biographies.

But if we’re forced to abdicate not only our history but our culture, what is the point of our lives? To provide housing and plumbing to people from other countries? To publicly flagellate ourselves by virtue signaling on social media because our ancestors were bad?

Where do our supposed obligations end, and do the new Americans have any of their own? When does the brazenness of caravan migrants, whose supporters always find a way to rationalize people cutting in front of other would-be legal immigrants—when does this sense of entitlement give way to gratitude?

Or is the true sentiment, unspoken and hidden deep inside the hearts of everyone who’d rather kick in the door rather than knock, is it that the sins of the past are so great that America’s residents get no say? That the ledger of our historical guilt can only be evened out through pandering, confiscation, and eviction?

The most troubling aspect of all is that the Left is willing to drown out their opponents under a torrent of shame just because you disagree with them. They’ll get your account suspended, dox you, whatever it takes to shut you up. Why? Because deep in their hearts they fear being such an object of ridicule, standing alone in the public square taking abuse for a truly held belief.

Watch the 1970 Italian film The Conformist for a taste of the inner hell that progressive types who stand for nothing live and then unleash onto others.

Fortunately, today’s forecast only calls for Tweet-storms after one of them gets triggered, as just happened when a beautiful girl joyfully wore a Chinese dress to her high school prom—which of course was cultural appropriation.

How can all of this end peacefully, when on the one hand conservatives are forced to bake cakes that go against their beliefs, but also have no recourse when a private social media company deletes their account? The Left’s unholy alliance of aggression and hypocrisy is in fact creating the monsters they protest against, by breeding resentment in the hearts of good people who, while maybe not be as savvy as they are, only want to live quietly without being lectured to and sued for thoughtcrimes.

All I can do as a person with some life experience and the ability to distill ideas is to share my insights before things really get out of hand. Because conservatives have a lot of two things—patience and guns—and I have too many friends on both sides of the aisle to ever want to see our country descend into civil war.
