“What do you call a Black person at a Republican rally? The keynote speaker.”
A popular trope of late among Fox News devotees and the Alt Lite is a mass #walkaway phenomenon among Blacks.
Granted, Trump has resonated with some Blacks. Whereas Blacks generally poll 95-98% Democrat (at most 5% Republican), the latest figures show them trending a whopping 30% for Trump.
Okay, that still amounts to a landslide for whatever Dem homunculus runs against him, but the Shapiros assure us it’s the passion of this groundswell that counts.
Listen for yourself as Black Conservatives explain their growing reservations with the Democrat party. Two Blacks on the Fox panel cited offense at the Democrats making abortion accessible in Black neighborhoods. And the Whites who have fought Roe for decades swoon at these words. Everyone wants Blacks to awaken to the evil of infanticide because, though they are only 13% of the population, they account for nigh 40% of abortions.
But lost amidst the rapture at their pushback on abortion is their express rationale for that change. The fawning Paternalists and PC Libertarians just cannot allow themselves to hear what these ‘Black Conservatives’ are actually saying. Things like …
“Any real Black leader knows there is strength in numbers, so why would you want us to abort our children?”
And the MAGA hat-wearing Black man says …
“With abortion we [meaning Blacks] killin’ our own soldiers.”
These sentiments are not unusual among ‘Conservative Blacks’, but entirely normative.
But neither the White moderator on the panel, nor Sean Hannity, Alex Jones, or hardly anyone else is hearing what they are actually saying. These ‘Conservative Blacks’ are growing circumspect of abortion not because it is murder, treason to the family, or an offense to God (they aren’t even opposing abortion as such, just abortion of Blacks), but because they believe it is all a ‘racist’ conspiracy against them.
Worse, they tell us their intent to end Black abortion is as a means to raise the number of their ‘soldiers’ for war. What war(?), you may ask. In context, they oppose abortion in order to build up the numbers of their race so they can more effectively attack White people.
That is literally what they are saying.
Of course, some will object, pointing to the guy’s MAGA hat, saying, “But it isn’t just about that! They love Trump!”
White people are chronically deluded on this point. What a margin of Blacks identify with in Trump isn’t Conservative principle: it’s his bravado they love. That and his constant pandering on the subject of Black unemployment.
Not that we object to Blacks being employed. Of course not. What we oppose in that myopia is what all Conservatives have opposed in the question at least since the time of Reconstruction — Affirmative Action — that inverted social promotion, and anti-White discrimination which has defined the unmaking of our nation.
But that obsequious prioritization of Blacks and others over Whites does not even convert any of them, really. It certainly does not translate into any People of Color (POC) affinity for the GOP, or Americanism. Rather than converting POC to Conservative principles, the GOP’s prostration before melanin only winds up affirming their endemic spirit of revolution.
They simply identify with Trump’s display of power and his promises to empower them — which to their minds is categorically a matter of ascendance over White people.
Unicorns like Thomas Sowell and Elizabeth Wright aside, in most cases, ‘Black Conservatism’ in America is but a cargo cult, and hellbent on harm to its benefactors.
Recent case in point, when her rhetoric waxes individualist Candace Owens makes Neocon and Libertarian alike swoon. But that’s only her schtick when it comes to demanding access to White spaces. Otherwise, all she talks about is “what’s good for the Black community”. If you actually listen to what she says, all her politics ultimately turn on this subject. Because she is at heart, a Black Nationalist bent on conquest of our society.
There is, of course, an entirely valid dimension to Black Nationalism, but it has no place near the helm of a White nation.
Before her there was the RNC Chairman and all around magic Negro, Michael Steele. His ‘conservatism’ expressed itself as unending attempts to destroy the GOP from within for the crime of having lots of Whites in it.
No sooner had Constitution Party rock star Alan Keyes began his bid for presidential endorsement than he split the party, alleging that if he was not the party’s pick it was a clear case of racial discrimination, and proceded to siphon off the already marginal numbers, further marginalizing the party.
Remember Lawrence King? He was the Black Republicans Council chairman in the 80s, and the “Black Hope” of the GOP. Until he was discovered to be a pedophile pimp trafficking children, and an all around crime don.
Then there were Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice.
Both held high office as Republicans but repudiated every Conservative principle. Powell even went so far as to say he was Republican only “because the Republicans need [him] more than the Democrats do”; meaning he was there to turn the GOP into the DNC. And Rice who once mocked Conservative Christians as “the Leviticus people” now sits on the board of the openly Luciferian Lucis Trust.
And no one can forget Michael King, alias Martin Luther King Jr., “the Beast”. Though the GOP has canonized him as some sort of conservative symbol, he was just about as Left-Liberal as anyone could be. I mean, full Leninist.
Either way, you’d think news of ⅓ support of a small minority residing mostly in condensed urbanscapes would warrant little focus. But Republicans are acting as if all hinges on that toenail. Even if the sunniest polls are accurate (they’re not) and Blacks came in at 30% for Trump in 2020 (dream on) in terms of that demographic, it remains a Black landslide for Democrats anyway. It turns no counties, nor even any precincts to the Right, and cannot therefore affect the electoral college in a positive direction.
And as established, given their perspective, it wouldn’t matter if they flipped 90% for Trump, as they still wouldn’t be American Patriots. Their Patriotism, like their Christianity, is nearly always based on the doctrine of “We shall overcome [Whitey]”. It’s all pretext to vengeance against White people.
All of which testifies to the wisdom of the American Founders who precluded Blacks from citizenship. They looked on the prospect of Africans being granted the franchise as total ruination and a fate far worse than any tyranny under the British. After all, even in the wake of an apocalyptic war against the Brits, Americans encouraged immigration and full enfranchisement of Brits in America, but explicitly precluded all non-Whites from citizenship in the Act of 1790.
Yes, foremost, because they understood them to be a different nation by definition, but also because that difference in identity is itself a contextual vantage which renders them unassimilable to our interests and ideals. Where we sing
“Land where our fathers died,
Land of the Pilgrim’s pride”
Whites may swell with patriotic love, but the same words evoke from the average Black only sorrow, bitterness, or revanchism.
Again, far from harming Blacks, the aforementioned perspective is the only one which actually grants Blacks their own legitimacy as a people without a mandate of harm on those they envy. But the whole field of liberal perspectives, including “colorblind conservatives”, necessarily demand the extermination of Whites, not to mention anyone else who causes them offense. Realize, Democrats are now arguing that White people voting in any conservative direction is contrary to civil rights, and racist; and therefore, unconstitutional, and felonious. Now realize this was the arithmetical trajectory of civil rights from the outset. Completely inescapable if you grant the underlying propositions. If equality and diversity are said to define America as a ‘propositional nation’ those with lingering conservative Christian perspectives are necessarily deemed traitors.
All of which also affirms the necessity of the constant biblical refrain against integration and elevation of alien races among your people. The fact that it is enumerated as the foremost curse in Deuteronomy 28, among other places, closes the case. No matter which angle we appraise it from, the notion that integration is conservative enrichment simply is not possible. It neither conforms to revelation nor can it produce any practical good. As our colonial fathers were wont to say, ‘it buttereth no parsnips’.
