The focus of this essay is a particular type of White racism known as Republican Base White racism. An excellent example of its milder and more partisan flavor is here.
There are various types of White racism (mostly directed at Blacks) in the US. One type is out and out White nationalism. Although all of these people vote Republican, the party wants nothing to do with them as they are too toxic.
There is another type of White racism that is prevalent in the base of the party. The Republican Party Base is actually wildly racist. Not necessarily in the WN sense, but they are pretty bad.
On the other hand, the party itself at the very least does not speak the same language that the base does. Statements of the RNC and Republican officeholders on race are generally quite mild, that is when they discuss race at all. The attitude of the party hierarchy seems to be the less we talk about race, the better.
Nevertheless, the party leadership has gone to great lengths to disenfranchise Black voters to the extent that they are now more or less resurrecting Jim Crow type voting restrictions against Blacks. But party officeholders in general have not had much to say bout the Trayvon Martin affair or the recent mess in Ferguson. They simply do not want to talk about it. So accusing Republican officeholders of having openly White racist views would not be correct. It would be better to say that they simply do not want to talk about race at all. However, some of their actions are very racist.
The sheer insanity of Republican hatred for the very conservative Democrat Barack Obama is of course linked to racism in some way or another, but party officials are not outspoken about this. Instead they use a lot of coded language, dog whistles, and secret coded messages to send racist signals to their base.
However, the anti-Black racism of the Republican base has a certain flavor about it that sets it apart from many other types of White racism.
First of all, it is more civilized.
It often involves a lot of prefacing that the author harbors no racial animus towards Blacks in general. Perhaps this is so. What he is mad about though is certain types of Blacks. And especially White liberals and Black rabblerousers who stir up Blacks to hate Whites. Unfortunately there is a certain amount of truth to this charge Black people are angry and violent enough without stirring them up to hate all White people. Further, such action encourages Black racism, which a serious problem in the US. In fact, Black racism against Whites in the US is much more virulent than the other way around.
Republican Base White racism is also very partisan. The whole problem with Black people is that they vote Democrat. I would say that’s the least of their problems, and in fact, it’s not a problem at all. Worse would be if they voted Republican because voting for your enemies never makes sense.
Supposedly the Democratic Party uses Blacks, keeps them on the Democratic plantation and mires them in a state of dependency. This state of dependency is called “people have a right to survive” and it’s correct that most of us liberals believe in it. Republicans do not believe that human beings have a right to survive. They want to “free you from dependency” so you no longer have a right to survive. Black people, who are always accused of being stupid, look at the Republican offer, see right through it immediately, and say, “Screw that.” Black people refuse to vote against their self-interests no matter how much they are brainwashed into doing so. I would say that maybe Black folks are a lot smarter than we give them credit for!
Focus on high profile race conflict cases. Republican Party Base racism also focuses as lot of on the Trayvon and Ferguson cases, and there are many references to the O.J. Simpson case. No doubt Blacks behaved idiotically in all of these cases. As did my liberal and Leftist brethren.
Black crime against Whites. This is one of their favorite subjects, and they discuss it in a variety of ways. This blogger does so in a mild way, pointing out that Blacks slaughter Whites constantly and no one cares, but one White kills a Black, usually for a damn good reason, and all Hell breaks loose. He logically points out the idiocy and obvious bias in media reporting of interracial crime.
The Black War on Whites. This fellow is pretty mild about it, but at the more extreme end of the Base, for instance at WorldNet Daily, they are starting to run a lot of articles about the Black “War on Whites” which I am not sure is even happening.
Supposedly since the election of Obama, Blacks have become emboldened and decided to war total war on White America. Various interracial crimes are held up as evidence of this such as flash mobs and race riots at various fairs and festivals. While this behavior is disturbing, I do not think there is any Black War on Whites. We have quite a few Blacks where I live, and they do not appear to be on a war footing since Obama got in. Actually, after he got elected, they seemed to get a whole lot happier.
Do Black criminals deliberately target Whites? Whether Blacks ever deliberately target Whites is another matter. I am sure that some Black crime is simply motivated by racial animus against Whites, and furthermore, hate crime charges are rarely filed against these Blacks, which is just wrong.
But in the main I see Black criminals are nothing more than animals. If there were wild lions and tigers running around our land killing people, do you think they would distinguish between Blacks or Whites? Of course not. So it is with Black criminals, who I see as animals on the same level as wild man-eating tigers. Black criminals do not particularly care what race you are. They prey on everyone. They attack Blacks, they attack Asians, they attack Hispanics, they attack Whites, Hell, they attack everyone. They are animals who attack anything that moves.
In fact, their fellow Blacks take the full blunt of the wrath of Black criminals. Blacks are only 13% of the population, yet Blacks are 90% of Black homicide victims. Obviously Blacks select Black victims far in excess of their % in the population. If anything, it appears that they selectively target their own people. While White victims of Black crime are lamentable, the truth is that we Whites probably get off easy in terms of Black crime.
Anyway, if you want to familiarize yourself with this rather mild but also insidious, sneaky and coded form of particularly partisan White racism known as Republican Base White racism, head on over to this fellow’s site. He has quite a few other articles on there that give you a broader attitude of his mindset. If you want to know where he is coming from, he is a Tea Partier. The Tea Party is simply the base of the Republican Party. Sure, it is a pretty ugly and insane segment of the base, but part of the base it is.
