In the Los Angeles Times, Gregory Rodriguez has written an unusual article, one you wouldn’t expect to find in one of the most liberal newspapers in America.
It is a call to abolish affirmative action.
Ban affirmative action? Is this some kind of joke? Has the Hutaree Militia hijacked the building?
Gregory Rodriguez hasn’t changed his views on affirmative action. He simply thinks a White racial backlash is brewing that will prove to be so enormous that it threatens to sweep away the entire edifice of postwar anti-racist multiculturalism.
It is better to abolish affirmative action now before White racial consciousness can grow to the point where the gringos realize the “deck has been stacked against them.” Ease the pressure on Whites before it produces the inevitable revolutionary explosion.
What prompted this sudden reversal on affirmative action? People like David Duke have been demanding the end of affirmative action for over forty years.
“The Perfect Storm for White Anxiety”
It is because we are now “routinely hearing the cries of white minority victimhood” and the masses are being “seduced by the siren song of minority victimology that has captivated other groups.”
The people who are being “seduced by the siren song of minority victimology” are not the usual suspects.
That’s the critical difference.
It is one thing to have a bunch of anonymous characters on the internet scrawling racial slurs into the comment sections of online newspapers.
It is quite another when millions of ordinary people – the ones who vote, who make campaign contributions, who hit the streets, who own firearms – start asking the same uncomfortable questions and repeating the same arguments about diversity and multiculturalism.
Progressives know where the logic of asking those questions ultimately leads. It is not a scenario that they would like to dwell on. Better to offer a concession now and prop up the status quo – buy some time – than travel down that ugly road.
What’s even scarier to people like Gregory Rodriguez is that they must know the demands made upon dwindling Whites by the growing non-White majority will only increase as the “minority-majority” grows in number.
Barack Obama can’t afford to lose non-White voters. White voters have already abandoned him.
What are the chances he will abolish affirmative action to prove his sincere desire for racial reconciliation? Less than zero. It was always an election year ploy and a trick that won’t work the second time around.
In the years ahead, we will see more articles like this one, as the progressive movement hurtles toward its inevitable trainwreck and conservatives start to feel the consequences (i.e., discrimination and wealth redistribution) of their collective racial dispossession.Follow Hunter Wallace on Gab, VK, Facebook and Twitter.
