VDARE Radio: The ACLU And The Alt Left
I’m Virginia Dare and you’re listening to VDARE RADIO.
We’re broadcasting from the bunker as a soft version of Mao’s Cultural Revolution is raging all around us. Just as “punch a Nazi” quickly transformed into “attack any random Trump supporter,” “destroy Confederate statues” has now turned into campaigns against the Founding Fathers, the Canadian founders and even Lord Nelson in the United Kingdom. There are no limits to this process. It will simply go on forever, and it will probably be renewed every generation as the goalposts for what constitutes racism, sexism or God knows what else are continuously redefined.
Underneath all of this is the Hate That Doth Not Speak Its Name – anti-white hatred. And perhaps one of the most troubling examples comes from the reaction to a picture posted by a group none of us would call “right wing,” the American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU. The ACLU recently tweeted out a photo of an adorable white toddler holding an American flag with the caption, “This is the future that ACLU members want.” The reaction from the Left, including most of the verified Blue Checkmarks on Twitter, was pure outrage.
One Nyasha Junior, one of those affirmative action academics, in this case someone who teaches on the “intersections of race, gender, and religion,” sputtered, “A White kid with a flag?!” This then opened the floodgates to accusations about how even tweeting a picture of a young white kid was enabling white supremacy.
Of course, this was linked to how the ACLU, until recently, supported the free speech rights of the organizers of the recent Unite The Right rally, which was shut down and turned into a chaotic free-for-all because of the actions of the Virginia state government and the Charlottesville local government. After the march, leftists both within and outside the organization are now declaring “hate groups” should not have the right to free speech. An ACLU leader in Virginia resigned and the organization said it will no longer represent “hate groups” which “march with weapons” [Violence in Charlottesville leads to soul-searching at ACLU, by Tom Hays and Larry Neumeister, Washington Times, August 23, 2017]. What constitutes a “hate group” or “weapons,” (do shields count? Flags?) has been left unanswered.
Still, we can see ominous signs from the furious reaction to what any other generation would have taken as almost a perfect representation of innocence and patriotism. White people existing, even white toddlers, is now evidence of “hatred.” As “haters” do not have the right to certain freedoms, such as freedom of speech, the long vanished freedom of association, or according to Paul Ryan, Second Amendment rights, anything can be done to them without consequence [Speaker Ryan Talks Gun Control Following Charlottesville Car Attack, by Awr Hawkins, Breitbart, August 22, 2017].
In Colorado, a former Congressman can no longer speak in his own state because journalists, aligned with militant Communists, have successfully intimidated a venue into cancelling our conference. The heckler’s veto, or really, the heckler’s death threat, has not just been established in American politics, but is positively celebrated by reporters and writers who claim they are still supporters of “freedom” and “democracy.”
The truth is that it is acceptable, even praiseworthy, to hate white people. Whites speaking even implicitly in defense of their own interests are allowed to be stripped of constitutional protection, subjected to threats or overt violence, and targeted for economic destruction. Indeed, the moral imperative to hate white people is now what defines the entire American Left – and certainly is having a deep impact on the easily intimidated Beltway Right.
The rise of anti-white hatred as not just acceptable, but mandatory within the American Left, is why the “Alt-Left” label works. There was a time when the ACLU was seen not just as a progressive group, but as one of the groups which defined American progressivism. Today, the ACLU is under attack for supposedly providing aid and comfort to white Identitarians, which, as we are endlessly told, “have no place within our society.” This constitutes a complete abandonment of classical liberalism, the idea that there are certain inherent and self-evident rights which all citizens enjoy. Instead, we have the rise of an unapologetically Totalitarian Left, which shares none of the traditions which once defined American progressivism.
Hatred of whites is now so celebrated and its consequences so severe that it is open to question whether the United States can even still be called a free country. The United Kingdom certainly can no longer be called a free country, as the rights to free speech and even self-defense have long since been abandoned. In Germany, the police raid people for Facebook posts. In Belgium, they ban political parties they don’t like.
Thanks to the Alt-Left and its celebration of anti-white hatred, the United States is now well advanced along this road to tyranny. But VDARE.com will continue to fight back against it. Because, contra what all the journalists and well-subsidized NGO heads tell you, we are the real #Resistance.
