The hostile narrative against white men is being fanned by the influential left-wing news site Salon, which just ran an article titled, “White men must be stopped: The very future of mankind depends on it.”
Salon even added some art to its twitter link to emphasize the color angle in the article by Detroit labor activist Frank Joyce.
Originally published on Alternet under the equally racist title “The Future of Life Depends on Bringing the 500-Year Rampage of the White Man to a Halt,” Joyce throws punches wildly, using every bit of guilt inducing mumbo-jumbo he can muster up to make his case that white men are biggest problem facing the planet and it’s the white people reading his article who need to do the “restraining” of white people.
Joyce writers that “there is surely a role whites can play in restraining other whites in this era. Beneath the sound and fury generated by GOP presidential candidates, Fox News, website trolls, police unions and others, white people are becoming aware as never before of past and present racism.”
By the third paragraph of his racist screed, Joyce is blaming a Hispanic Senator and a black doctor for white supremacy:
To the contrary, given the possibility that Donald Trump, Ben Carson or one of their ilk might become president, white supremacist ideology seems to be digging in harder than ever.
When Joyce hits his stride, he launches a full-fledged attack on facts, such as any non-leftist narrative of the real history of slavery.
This takes an especially pernicious twist when white racism deniers argue that there has always been slavery as though that itself somehow makes it justified. It’s not true that every society over all time has enslaved people. But even if it were true, the kind of slavery on which the U.S. was built is unlike any other that preceded it. It co-evolved with capitalism and it conflated slavery with “race”—plantation capitalism as the Reverend James Lawson calls it.
Talking factually about the actual history of slavery, says Joyce, is racist. Besides, he tells the elitist liberals that make up Salon’s readership, slavery in America was the worst thing ever…because… capitalism.
People who formed alternate universes used to be put into looney bins, now they are noted liberal authors.
