Here’s some fresh evidence that conservatism is for retards. The cover story of the latest issue of National Review is an article by Kevin D. Williamson called Keeping Blacks Poor. It argues that liberal policies like the minimum wage and union membership are holding the black man down. As I don’t have a subscription to this rag, I can’t tell you if Williamson argues that ending transfer payments to negroes is the solution to their downward spiral.
Notice the poor black fellow on a bicycle (undoubtedly, a Democrat) with that forlorn look on his face. Since when do blacks ride bicycles or vote for Republicans? Since when do conservatives ever learn anything? That’s what I am wondering. The small print at the top indicates that this issue will also talk about “The Massachusetts Miracle.” The massive turnout by White Democrats who voted for the Republican candidate to stop Obamacare is not the lead story here. On the contrary, National Review wants to talk about another pathetic outreach attempt to black voters who will never vote against a co-ethnic in the White House.
Unfortunately, this nonsense does get into circulation by default. I’ve had White conservatives tell me before that liberal social policies are the cause of black-on-white violent crime. There are people who seriously believe this stuff because alternative racial and cultural explanations are not allowed to circulate in the PC mainstream. You can’t point out that black-on-white rape has exploded because blacks no longer have any fear of lynch mobs, or that other segregationist predictions like the failure of integrated schools have come true.
Conservatism is immune to experience. In spite of all his pandering, Hispanics buried John McCain. Over 95% of blacks voted for Obama. In 2008, Whites stayed home and turned “Purple States” like Ohio and Pennsylvania into Blue States. Republicans would rather lose than appeal to the self interest of White voters. They are only winning now because Whites have turned against Obama and the Democrats.
Anyway, I will file this one away in my drawer of reasons why I am not a conservative. This material might be of some interest to future historians writing about the decline and fall of White America.
