History is strewn with the wrecks of nations which have gained a little progressiveness at the cost of a great deal of hard manliness, and have thus prepared themselves for destruction as soon as the movements of the world gave a chance for it.*
I’m going to play the devil’s advocate for a moment here. Please bear with me. In defense of young, angry white men who get smeared in every social forum for expressing any sort of white “supremacist” statements, I’d like to assert that they have every right to do so regardless of anyone else’s feelings. In fact, they have a duty to defend their race.
Why? Every other race and even trendy social groups du jour, with the glaring exception of heterosexual white males, is allowed to have its faction of angry young men who are sick and tired of being told there’s something wrong with them because of their skin color or some other supposedly superficial distinction. Yes, white people are no different. We have a right to be angry as well, particularly when all the woes of the world are placed on our shoulders alone.
It is human nature to blame someone, anyone, when things go wrong. It is likewise human nature to defend oneself. No one should be surprised when a white male fights back; that’s exactly what he should do. Yes, anger is a perfectly acceptable reaction to those screeching about universal love and acceptance when these are the same babbling idiots preaching hatred of the white race – Love, love, love…but we hate this white guy.
Where is that hatred for the bloodthirsty Bantu who has ravaged more than half of inner Africa? Where is that self-righteous hatred for the marauding bands of rapists who scream to Allah a few times a day? Where is that hatred for the Choctaw who in a fit of rage after losing his black slaves hunted them down like wild animals? It isn’t there. The activist hates only the white man; past, present, and future.**
Have we not the right to defend ourselves? Should the white man become a social pariah simply for speaking up for his race as the African or Hispanic man does his? The double standard is perplexing at best. Can we as a species not pause and think for a moment in an attempt to understand why these angry white males are, in fact, angry? If other races can have their screaming young men why shouldn’t whites have theirs? This is human nature, plan simple. To expect one race and only that one race to rise above that is – dare I say it – an unconscious admission of that race’s superiority.
Whites are expected to behave a certain way, but when angry whites behave like the members of any other angry race the world screams in outrage. To make matters worse, any other race is excused and even coddled in their tantrums. They are labeled as “victims” or their rage is pinned to socio-economic frustration or the racism of – you guessed it – whites. Indeed, when a white expresses any sort of racial frustration, it’s incriminating. When any other race does so, it’s infinitely excusable. This is some sort of bizarre plot twist in which whites are expected to be better than everyone else. What a conundrum. What a tangled web we weave when we try to lay all the woes of the wide world on a pair of pale shoulders.
Is this the white man’s burden? Atlas just shrugged it off and he will not pick up more than his fair share again. If we are truly equals, carry your own burden. Expecting anyone else to do it for you is a confession of inferiority. I urge all of you not to confess to anything but to walk proudly, shouldering your own family, your own tribe, your own race. This is how we all succeed. This is how we all move forward, past the anger.
