So, it`s the morning after. The
smoldering, mutilated corpse of Trent Lott still turns
slowly from the tree in the town square, where the Good
Ole Boys hung him up last night. And over to the Court
House steps, where a small, shocked, crowd has gathered
in the cold early sunlight, swaggers Jonah “Alaska”
Goldberg. Shifting his cocktail canapé into his cheek,
he pulls a flask of white wine spitzer from his
overalls, spits, and announces that the old guys weren`t
tough enough – things are going to be different
And he`s right. The younger
generation of Neocons has
proved they can stir up a mean lynch mob. The older
generation failed to grasp the lethal possibilities
created by a generation of brainwashing about American
history. Starting now, when Alaska and his sidekick,
Big David Frum, start working the bars and levees
where the poor white trash of the media world gather of
an evening, the establishment will get nervous.
White Southern men can forget any
hopes of national political leadership roles (unless
they are total
Scallawags of the Clinton/Gore stripe). And any
tolerant reference to – much less involvement in – the
seismic political shift which brought the South into the
Republican Party, thus creating the political prospects
which attracted the Neocons to become “conservatives” in
the first place, will be a death warrant.
The South`s job is to
vote and shut up.
But what was it all about? Other
than facilitating a generational shift amongst the neos
helots out of the Southern Republicans?
Peter Brimelow observed in
Alien Nation that “the Constitution announces
its purpose is “to form a more perfect Union… [for]
ourselves and our posterity” – the Founders`
posterity, not posterity in general.” (Pp. 209-10).
Strom Thurmond took his stand in
1948 essentially on the proposition that the South
should be run for
white Southerners. Ariel Sharon today stands on the
proposition that Israel should be run as an equally
ethnically particularist polity. Either could be
deemed unseemly – or honorable. Yet a kindly reference
to the former destroys a leading American politician.
For the latter – if arguably indirectly – America
appears about to go to war,
enrage over a billion Muslims, and expose its
population to who knows what encore to the 9/11
What is the difference?
About the only benefit of the Lott
lynching has been briefly to lower the volume of shrieks
of bloodlust emanating from
NRO and its absurdly pompous “At War” section, which
has called for the overthrow of a ridiculous number of
Arab governments in the past 15 months.
So presumably these young men can
now take the time to explain why they insist on the
anathematization of the Dixiecrat/Anti “Civil
Rights” movement (while of course reaping its fruits
professionally), and at the same time demand war in the
interests of a regime at least as ethnocentric – but
