In the Wall Street Journal, Peggy Noonan laments the recent passing of a number of elderly Beltway scribes, whom she describes as the “tribal chieftains” of the media. These “Elders” are/were the “oldest and wisest.” They “set the standards” and “handed down the lore.” Unlike the “ranters” who are poisoning our national discourse, Cronkite, Safire, Novak, Kristol had the virtue of knowing “where the line was” and had a “sense of responsibility” towards the country. What hokum.
This is a glowing obituary for a group of men that never wrote so much as a jot in defense of America’s White majority. The media elite is cosmopolitan, multicultural, anti-tribalist. They identify with immigrants, not natives; their fellow transnational elites abroad, not the rednecks out in flyover country; with non-Whites and non-Westerners, not the White West. The most elementary function of any “tribal chieftain,” or “leader” of any sort, is to look out for the well being of his tribe. In this sense, the media elite has spectacularly failed.
The real “tribal chieftains” are relentlessly tarred and feathered as racists, bigots, nativists and xenophobes in the mainstream media. White racial consciousness is verboten. Except in the negative sense, no one is allowed to speak on behalf of Whites as a race. Whites aren’t allowed to think of themselves as a team with material interests that conflict with other groups. The only “lore” we are permitted to possess is a racial guilt complex over the various crimes of our ancestors.
I won’t be joining Peggy Noonan in mourning the passing of the NYC-DC cocktail party circuit. From a White Nationalist perspective, it is maybe a gain, certainly not a loss.
