Lee Siegel: The Horror of Implicit Whiteness
(The Occidental Observer) -- by Kevin MacDonald --
At TOO we often use the phrase “hostile elite” to describe our new, predominantly Jewish elite that has become ensconced in all the media high ground in America. Examples are legion, but it is hard to imagine a more blatant recent example of fear and loathing of White America than Lee Siegel’s “What’s race got to do with it?” (Well, maybe Rabbi Hammerman’s outburst against Tim Tebow comes close.) Published in the most mainstream of the mainstream media, the New York Times, Siegel is horrified by Romney’s Whiteness:
The simple, impolitely stated fact is that Mitt Romney is the whitest white man to run for president in recent memory. Of course, I’m not talking about a strict count of melanin density. I’m referring to the countless subtle and not-so-subtle ways he telegraphs to a certain type of voter that he is the cultural alternative to America’s first black president. It is a whiteness grounded in a retro vision of the country, one of white picket fences and stay-at-home moms and fathers unashamed of working hard for corporate America.Mitt Romney the candidate of implicit Whiteness.
Romney reminds Siegel of the bad old 1950s when White people like Romney ran the country and supported Joe McCarthy, worked hard and had lots of babies. The new elite hates the old America with a passion. Here’s the photo accompanying Siegel’s piece:
Way too many White people. Good looking, healthy, rich White people. It’s enough to make a Jewish writer think pogroms and expulsions. Siegel longs for the day when the power of Whites is way less than it is now–when Whites don’t have the clout to matter much in presidential elections.
White America is retro. Obama is the personification of the new America. And the only trait that matters is that he is non-White.
On the other hand, retro America is racist to the core, and Romney’s Mormons are a “bastion of pre-civil-rights-America whiteness.”
Yes, since 1978 the church has allowed blacks to become priests [the link directs the reader to the LDS home page which features Jesus with non-White children]. But Mormonism is still imagined by its adherents as a religion founded by whites, for whites, rooted in a millenarian vision of an America destined to fulfill a white God’s plans for earth.Sort of like Judaism as imagined by its adherents: founded by Jews, for Jews, and rooted in a millenarian vision of America and the rest of the world as destined to fulfill a Jewish G-d’s plans for His favorite (Chosen) people.
Siegel hates everything White, down to clean shirts. To be authentically White is to be overly clean, robotic, insincere, bland, sentimentally patriotic, and living in the time warp of small-town America—the bogeyman of two generations of Jewish intellectuals—and to believe that the Founding Fathers (those dead White guys who established the primitive America not yet defined by our hostile elite) may have had some good ideas that should inform how we do things in the contemporary US...MORE...LINK
