What Liberals Can Learn From Derek Black

Derek Black, the son of Don Black a Ku Klux Klan grand dragon, founder of "Stormfront" a website which serves as a platform for White people who are in a tither about White genocide, racial purity, immigration, "preserving" America for the White race, wrote a thoughtful and altogether wonderful article in the NYT Sunday August 20 Sunday Review.

He noted that the history of the idea of preserving America for White people of European descent, excluding White Jewish Europeans is not new but was embodied in United States immigration law until just 50 years ago.

He also noted the Jefferson memorial in Washington, DC has the words "Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these [Negro] people are to be free," but does not include the second half of that sentence, "Nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government . Nature, habit, opinion has drawn indelible lines of distinction between them."
Zealotry of the Convert

He notes that Lincoln hoped to deport all coloreds back to Africa, to Liberia. He would free them, but deport them. Only when that did not work, for practical reasons, did he agree to simply set them free in place.

Having been raised in the White nationalist subculture he notes the most important and fundamental issue for these racists, what keeps them up at night is the oncoming demography, that immigration will mean by the yer 2040 Whites will be in the minority.  What Hitler called the mongrelization of a nation is well under way in the United States.  Clinton remarked on this, and celebrated it.  For Derek Black, David Duke, the Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan nation, this is their greatest nightmare.

This is why Donald Dubious's "Build the Wall" resonated so thoroughly with the crowds of White nationalists who cheered him. 
Frightened White Men

Derek Black had his own radio show for White people at age 10, and his father had one, in addition to the website.  One thing about the conservatives, they do mass communications as the first step.

They talk a lot, marshal arguments, test them out. 
Liberals, not so much.

We had a Democratic Party meeting at which the Free State Project was presented by a young woman who was trying to make a career by tracking this group of ultra libertarians, who do not believe in government beyond protecting individual rights, which means no public roads, no public schools, no public health funded by government, no vaccinations, basically, no government beyond an army. Everything but national defense can be done by private enterprise. Or at least, that's what some of the Free Staters believe. They are so into not being part of a group, they refuse to even call themselves "members" of the Free State Project because they so cherish the idea of their own individuality.

Six Free Staters were in the audience but they were hardly allowed to speak or defend themselves. The presentation was all about whipping up anxiety about how the Free Staters were trying to take over New Hampshire. This was what Democrats were doing--declaiming from the pulpit, not allowing a free exchange of ideas.

I think what Democrats, and liberals of all stripes, need to do is to engage in open and spirited debate with the Free State Project, and with other kooks like  Kris Kobach, who believes White genocide is imminent. These folks have arguments which are easy enough to demolish, but when we do not give them a hearing, they have an easy claim to the status of a suppressed minority.

The other thing we need is a liberal Rush Limbaugh. The first effort, Air America, failed because, as Rush Limbaugh observed, they did not know how to entertain.

Liberals need to find their showmen and show women.

When he stepped out on that stage in Chicago on election night in 2008, and Barack Obama said

If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our Democracy; Tonight is your answer.”

there was no better show on earth. He had that exultant crowd in tears, and he was better that night than President Snowflake has ever been.  
We need somebody who can take the stage, as Obama once did and observe, "We worship an awesome God in the blue states." 

How clever that sentence, at once disparaging the idea of those sanctimonious Bible Thumpers in the red states that only they are pious, and at the same time reaching out to those in the red states who think the Democrats up north are godless. 

In a country of 320 million, one would hope there is one more Obama out there, if only the Democrats would allow him or her to flower.  But, looking at the pathetic Chuck Schumer and, God Bless her, but Heaven Help her, Nancy Pelosi, the only thing one can conclude about the Democrats is they value seniority over real leadership and over winning. 

What Democrats need is a war consigliore; we need a pugnacious Churchill who wants to fight, who does not care about offending people or being politically correct. 
We do not need people who are preoccupied with stupid things like a sports broadcaster who says a black tennis star engages in guerrilla warfare and thus has uttered a racial slur by suggesting a black woman might be a "gorilla." 

We've been through all that stupidity back in the 60's when youths cut off the alligator patch from their LaCoste polo shirts as an anti elitist statement.

First, we have to stop looking like fools. Second, we have to stop worrying about what Donald Dubious is going to say or do and then, thirdly, we have to start thinking about what we can do to Donald Dubious.


  1. you need to come up with something better than "Donald Dubious" and "President Snowflake" (whatever that means). Neither has the ring and staying power of say "Crooked Hillary", "Lying Ted, or "Little Marco". Have to admit the D...Bag Donald does know how to communicate.

  2. Anon,
    You're right. Keep throwing things on the wall and seeing if they will stick. Nothing has.
    Next up: President Honey Boo Boo.
