As I was growing up in America, there were thing going on far beyond my perception. Things that basically fell into that bizarre category Donald Rumsfeld once defined as “The unknown unknowns” which he described as categories of thing we did not know that we did not even know we did not know. Or, to quote him directly, “There are thing you know, there are things you do not know, and there are things you do not know that you do not know.
Having been born in 1961 in America, I was literally surrounded by things I knew, things I did not know and an entire world of things that I did not even suspect that I did not know. As a consequence, I grew up blissfully ignorant of the things that I didn’t even suspect that I knew nothing about.
Recent events have resulted in my having to spend a considerable amount of time rethinking things I had grown up believing were true. Like, I suspect the vast majority of White American’s, I grew up having no particular pride in the color of my skin. I was not ashamed of it, I just wasn’t proud of it either. It wasn’t a thing to be grasped for the simple reason, that it was not something that I had any control or say over.
I, just as I imagine the vast majority of White American’s did, grew up in a household and community where the things you took pride in, were accomplishments. I was proud of my grandfathers, not because of their ethnicity, but because of what they had done.
One of my grandfathers was a Colonel in the United States Air Force. He had earned that rank during the Korean War, but had survived both world wars 1 and 2 prior to that. He was what was known as a Brevet Officer, having had his rank elevated as a consequence of his combat actions.
The other was a simple Wheat farmer.
The fact that both of them were white was about as relevant as the time of day on Jupiter was. In other words, it wasn’t relevant at all. I was raised to give no importance to the color of an individuals skin, because that individual had absolutely no control or say over that aspect of who they were.
In other words, the America I, and the vast majority of other white American’s were born and raised in was a society known as a “Meritocracy”. Who your ancestors were, who your parents were, who you and your siblings were and who your own offspring were, was determined not by their ethnicity or skin color, but by what you accomplished.
My mothers father was a simple humble wheat farmer. His wife was a native American who never made much of a deal about her native American heritage. My own mother was not a big fan of her mothers side of the family, because according to my mother, “They were a bunch of no good drunks and lay-a bouts who never achieved a damned thing”.
So, here we are, in America as 2018 is coming to a close. The last 10 years have been profoundly disturbing to say the very least. I have been informed repeatedly and viciously that I am a White Supremacist Racist Nazi Fascist so many times that I have quite literally lost count. I have been told, that I need to check my White Privilege and that my complete unawareness of said privilege is proof of my racist Nazi Fascist privilege.
When people of color, who neither have I ever met, nor who likewise have never met me, and are completely unaware of my existence other than in the most abstract manner, insist that I am a racist, I find it both disconcerting and more than a little offensive.
There are the thing you know, the things you do not know, and the things you do not know that you do not know.
Until recently, I did not know, that believing that every individuals worth was to be defined by what they did, not by the color of their skin or their ethnicity was white supremacist racist Nazi Fascist behavior. The thing that I did not know that I did not know, was why this could be so.
All revolutions represent 1 thing, and 1 thing only. It is the only reason any revolution ever takes place. It is always the transference of power and wealth from one group to another. Quiet often that transference is beneficial to the vast majority of people who are tricked into achieving that transference by way of extreme violence.
One of the things that made the United States of America unique in the history of the world, was that for once in human history, that transference of power and wealth did not go to an elitist group of aristocrats who by virtue of their wealth and title maintained a strict hierarchy of social status that everyone was locked into from birth.
This was because America’s founding fathers believed in creating a Meritocracy. A society where each individuals standing in society transcend class barriers and was predicated upon what they were able to achieve, not based on who their ancestors were, or were not.
That thing that I did not know that I did not know, and would not come to understand until I was in my 40s, was that hiding in the shadows of America were violent hateful revolutionaries hell bent of a new transference of wealth and power in America. This new transference would not be based on merit. It would be based on political ideology.
Those with the right ideology, who spoke the right words, who believed the right ideas would be the recipients of this new transference of wealth and power, except, that they wouldn’t. They would just be allowed to keep, maybe, what they had acquired under the old system, but, they would be granted the right to stand in the public market square and virtue signal for the entire world to see their glorious new virtue.
More shocking was how many of those being exterminated, i.e. White People were convinced that they were part of the new class upon whom this transference of wealth and power would be, and all they had to do to enjoy this privilege of glorious righteousness while systemically being exterminated, is to flagellate themselves while castigating and denigrate anyone who just happens to be white for not being joyous about being the victim of genocide.
Yes. I was unaware that I did not know that Marxist revolutionaries had infiltrated America and were engaging in a Marxist revolution which was designed to destroy the United States of America’s Constitutional Republic. Moreover, I was also completely unaware that I did not know that the primary tool they would use, was class warfare fomented through racism.
Yes, I grew up knowing that America had issues with racism. Like the vast majority of American’s I grew up knowing about our past with slavery. I grew up believing that slavery was one of America’s repugnant past practices. A practice that we thankfully decided was morally and ethically inexcusable and put behind us at a truly horrendous cost. But that we had in fact put it behind us, and that we were making steady constant progress in making our society the meritocracy for Americans of all ethnicity’s that we believed it both was, and should be.
So, imagine my shock when I discovered that despite my never owning a slave, never oppressing anyone, never judging a person by the color of their skin and never having any privilege in society, that my completely lack of awareness of my own privileged status was proof of my racist attitudes and proclivities.
Then imagine my shock and anger when I realized that it was necessary for me to be labeled and branded a white supremacist racist fascist Nazi in order for a group of Marxist revolutionaries to overthrow the nation I had grown up in, that my family had served in the military’s of for generations, the nation that I loved, so that they could transfer the wealth and power of this capitalist meritocracy into the select hands of a few ruthless amoral unethical and utterly corrupt people who held the “Right” political ideology.
This whole facade of calling the average white American a racist, this disgusting assault on truth, rational logical thought known as “Politically Correct Speech/Behavior” is nothing less than a war being fought against America by way of Cultural Marxism. It is being waged against that majority of American’s who just happen to be white, who also just happen to love the United States of America as a Constitutional Republic.
It is being waged on multiple levels. At the very top, by wealthy Marxist Globalists who want nothing less than to force the transference of wealth and power of the United States of America and her citizens, to themselves. On a lower level, it is being waged by the cannon fodder, who have been lied to, indoctrinated and brainwashed into believing that America, as a Constitutional Republic is an evil nation that must be destroyed, that that they will be the recipients of that transference of wealth and power.
Nothing could possibly be further from the truth. What little they now have, wealth, power and opportunity will be stripped from them exactly as it has in every other nation on earth that has succumbed to the sirens song of Marxism. But, hey, at least they will get to proclaim their nonexistence virtue in the public square as they are mindlessly calling for the extermination and genocide against the evil white people who have created Western Civilization.
