Many have correctly observed that whites as a group are being unjustly attacked by radical leftists for being particularly racist, enjoying “white privilege” and advocating “white supremacy.” It’s a modern witch hunt and there is nothing wrong with pointing it out. However, some whites fall into the trap of defending themselves by joining the identity politics witch hunt.
Imagine a young woman in the middle ages, accused of being a witch. You would feel sympathy for her when she declares in agony “I’m not a witch!” However, your sympathy would quickly fade when she points at another young woman in the crowd and screams “she’s the witch, not me! Burn her instead!”
The Satanic game
It has become a popular argument among some conservatives to defend themselves against the unjust allegations of racism by pointing towards blacks, claiming that they are the most racist group of all, a topic covered earlier here at Liberty Nation. By doing this they are playing right into the hands of the Satanic Marxist game of divide and conquer.
Karl Marx was the one to invent this strategy. First, divide the world into two groups and then lure one of the groups to believe that they are oppressed by the Other. Declare yourself to be the moral leader of the oppressed and enjoy the benefits of inciting the mob to violence against the Other.
The only way to win this game is to refuse to play it.
What this means in practice is that the only ones who should ever be attacked as a group are those inciting the satanic game in the first place. That would be the neo-Marxists and post-modernists. Morally neutralize the instigators of violence and hate and the problems will fade away.
Race as the extended family
The first step in refusing to play the game is to realize that not everything that is about race must be racist. A race is a form of extended family, and it is only natural that individuals prefer their own family over others. There is nothing wrong about that if we keep it out of politics.
The Singaporean model
Singapore is an ethnically, religiously and racially mixed country, and it was founded on a race war with Malaysia. Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew warned of how democracy easily spirals into identity politics. His proudest legacy was a cohesive country in which people of many races could live together as equals and where identity politics was not allowed. Race and other forms of identity are banned from politics in Singapore, and the result seems to have been a major success. America could probably learn from that.
Blacks and whites are natural allies against the Marxists
Blacks and whites have had their issues over the years. Both have legitimate grievances and have experienced injustice. This has often led to mutual resentment and mistrust. However, they do have one thing in common: both are the victims of radical leftists who pit the races up against each other.
Race baiters such as Al Sharpton, Tariq Nasheed and others have been fueling this hate while laughing all the way to the bank. By contrast, conservative blacks such as Alfonzo Rachel and Tommy Sotomayor have been viciously attacked, censored and silenced by YouTube, Facebook and other radical leftists simply for refusing to play the Marxist game and instead trying to build a more cohesive and self-sufficient black community based on personal responsibility and a strong family.
Don’t play the identity politics game
It is so easy to fall prey to the blame game. It is not a good idea and almost always leads down a dark path. One should instead focus on what can maintain cohesion and reduce divisiveness in society. That doesn’t mean that you must accept open borders. On the contrary, the radical left cynically uses poor socialists from third world hellholes to instigate a race war, from which they will benefit. Don’t let the Marxists win. If you stop the Marxists, almost all the other issues will be resolved.
