The so-called “far right” has its own version of wokeness. We have long talked in terms of people being “redpilled” and contrasted them with “normies” who are asleep.
In the “far right” version, the colorblind conservative and libertarian normies are hopelessly deracinated, degenerate and atomized individualists who are asleep in a world that is lorded over by an evil Jewish oligarchy that bamboozles White people through its control of the media and which is undergoing rapid racial and cultural demographic changes which will ultimately destroy Western civilization. These naive people are misled by mainstream conservatives who are suckers who are sleepwalking them into the future. They are ill prepared for the disaster that awaits them and their children and grandchildren.
White people live under systemic antiracism. Every single institution in our society is explicitly against White people and especially White men. White people are taught from birth that something called “racism” is the greatest moral failing and that we should be ashamed of our wicked ancestors and that unlike all other groups we do not have a legitimate identity or collective interests. “Masculinity” is said to be toxic. Patriarchy is oppressing women rather than ordering the family toward natural and divine ends that promote social harmony and human happiness and flourishing. Morality is a laundry list of -isms and -phobias which have been conjured into existence by academics and spread through our culture by the media. History is nothing but a series of crimes committed by White people against Jews and noble non-Whites. Gender is a “social construct” that can be changed as the mood strikes.
Far from progressing toward MLK’s colorblind utopia, Whites are becoming a degraded minority in their own countries due to mass immigration. We have grown soft and have been led misled by weak leaders who have squandered our birthright. The future of White America can be seen in Third World countries like South Africa where this declining anti-white dystopia has already been institutionalized. Race and sex are immutable biological realities. The “far right” version of being “woke” is understanding all of this and accepting that Whites need to throw off their decadent leaders and reassert themselves again before our children and grandchildren and our entire race slide even further toward this dystopia.
Such has been the conventional wisdom in the “far right” (the people who don’t automatically adopt every stupid leftwing fad out of sheer cowardice) for the last thirty years. The “far right” hasn’t changed at all in its fundamental beliefs. What has changed is that we have steadily moved closer to this looming dystopian future and more and more White people are figuring out that it is becoming increasingly difficult to disagree with our diagnosis of the direness of the situation. The frog is really starting to boil now and the old mood of White complacency is giving way to a new mood of White anxiety.
“Rod Dreher asks “What are they preparing us for by teaching non-white people to fear and loathe whites?” It’s a good question, and the answer is something to fear.
Once only on social media, now commonplace on the legacy outlets, we encounter near-constant pleas to kill white people, or cancel them, or push them aside. A white friend married to the same Asian woman for decades was cursed at in front of his grandchildren as a fetishist. Late night “comedy” shows openly enjoy speculating what violence Derek Chauvin will suffer in prison. A Barnard College instructor discussed gassing whites in a coming race war. It is completely acceptable in our public discourse to say such things, almost fashionable under grievance theology.
Coupled with the sentiments toward white people is a similar theme against men in general. Twitter from time to time will burp up hashtags like #WorldWithoutMen, with tweets that range between funny-not funny jokes about how women can get by with “more batteries” to outright calls for violence. We can’t help it, having been assured “all men are part of a patriarchal system that stamps all over women,” one big Handmaid’s Tale of woe. Not really much room for practical improvement like when we were just asked to help with the dishes. …”
In retrospect, the George Floyd riots and the rollout of systematic racism by the political establishment last summer was the moment when the “awakening” happened. Millions of White people changed in that moment. It dawned on them for the first time what their future was actually going to be like.
“Seeing color as an essential part of identity is what America spent 160 years fighting against. The progressive reversal is little short of a confession that that idea, including the civil rights movement and Dr. King, et al., failed. Their answer is to declare a mass of Americans must be downgraded, if not eliminated, for others to progress. We will never otherwise get black Americans to make up 13.4 percent of everything, they say as if that goal rivaled the moon shot in the national mind. …”
The mainstream Right bought into all the pretty little lies about colorblindness and was conned into believing it was true and was quite literally taken for a ride by MLK and the reverends. Now, they are being ejected from their collective delusion into this raw new world of reverse Jim Crow. They are protesting the unfairness of it all with complaints like “this isn’t what I signed up for” because they took colorblindness as an ideal at face value rather than recognizing it as a tactic to disarm Whites.
Note: Conservatives are supposed to be realists who are skeptical of ephemeral utopias and vicious attacks on tradition. Conservatism, Inc. made sure that there was “no place” in the conservative movement for anyone who had healthy conservative instincts about the long term trajectory of “antiracism” and its claims. MLK’s Dream would come true as long as we all wished hard enough that it were so.
