A skinheadist…I mean…kinist blogger has commented on some of my recent posts. Needless to say, he doesn’t offer anything resembling a rational refutation of what I said.
He does, however, have some colorful epithets at his disposal. For instance, he calls me a “Race Mixer.”
I confess I’ve never seen a Race Mixer. Is that a cross between a cocktail mixer and a relay runner?
He also calls me a “Bloodsmutter”—which is better than a Bloods Mutter, but much worse than a Blood Mutters. Or so I imagine.
BTW, given chronic shortages in the national blood supply, I think kinists should be required by law to carry cards which state that under no circumstances would they accept a transfusion from a donor of the “wrong” race. That would free up more hemoglobin for the rest of us in case of major surgery.
He then refers the Master Race to a critique of my position by someone he calls Pastor Bret McAtee. I notice that McAtee is a contributor to lewrockwell.com, which tells you a lot about Lew Rockwell.
So what does the good “Pastor” have to say?
“The social views of blacks, if we are to take voting habits for the Democratic party as an indicator, has been uniform for quite some time regardless of the color of the Democrat at the top of the ticket. The Black candidate Obama may get a few more percentage points of support among the Black community but not enough to suggest that voting habits of Blacks in this election is anything different from other elections.”
From what I’ve read, Obama is expected to garner a significantly higher percentage of the black vote than Kerry got in ’04.
“It is not ethnic or racial identity as ethnic or racial identity that is sinful per se.”
I never said it was. Rather, I said it was a question of priorities.
“It is certainly understandable that ‘blood is thicker than water’.”
Not surprisingly, that’s a German proverb. Kinism as quite a lot in common with German philosophy—especially between 1933 and 1945.
“What is sinful and what the vicarious symbolism reflects is that the people group in question (with notable exceptions), as evidenced by their voting habits, incarceration habits, crime habits, and welfare habits have rejected Christ. Their joint voting for Obama merely reinforces the reality of that rejection.”
Coming from the lips of a kinist, this is rather like John Spong denouncing Harry Emerson Fosdick for apostasy. Somehow it’s hard to tell the difference.
“There is nothing ironic about racial and ethnic solidarity.”
I never said there was. The irony lay in parallel between Southern white Confederates and black Obama supporters.
“It seems that White people are the only ethnic people who don’t practice it.”
Of course, if you have to “practice” racial solidarity, then you’re pretending to be something you’re not. I might as well practice having chest hair or blue eyes.
“Second, White Southerners, during the ramp up to the Second War for American Independence, were responding to a mortal threat from an enemy who were threatening to destroy them and their way of life.”
Well, that’s a bit overstated. For one thing, B. B. Warfield’s kin (to take one example) fought for the Union, not the Confederacy. Yet Warfield’s kin were white Southerners, too.
“What is sadly predictable is that this writer has only read the court historians, and as such he is clueless about the various motives that inspired Southerners.”
I see. So Thornwell and Dabney were merely “court historians”—oblivious to the real motives of white Southerners. Kinists really do need to devise a DNA test to distinguish true white Southerners from false white Southerners. Before we can segregate blacks from whites, we need to segregate true whites from false whites and true Southerners from false Southerners—not to mention true white Southerners from false white Southerners. It’s all so confusing.
“The Southerners did not defend themselves against the onslaught of Northern tyranny with the primary purpose of defending the institution of slavery.”
Well, whatever their “primary” motive was, Dabney wrote a whole book defending Southern slavery in relation to the Civil War—while the fourth volume of Thornwell’s Collected Writings devotes quite a lot of space to the very same subject. . I prefer to get my Confederate history from real dead Confederates rather than wistful wannabes.
“If men like Dabney and Thornwell did have social and emotional attachments, they had social and emotional attachments to a culture that was largely Christian.”
If it was largely Christian, then it was Christian in spite of race-based bondage.
“Are the social and emotional attachments of the Black community to B. Hussein Obama and the Democratic party social and emotional attachment that are largely Christian?”
No more or less Christian than the Confederate cause.
“Yes, I would say they are a reverse mirror image. Whereas White Southerners united together in order to resist tyranny, Blacks are uniting together in order to embrace tyranny and slavery.”
I’m all for resisting tyranny. And if the white Southerners had the right to resist Northern tyranny, then black Southerners had the right to resist Southern tyranny.
