JOHN DERBYSHIRE: Putin Is Right!—About Wokeness

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com]

Earlier, by Steve Sailer: What If Wokeness Is A Russian Conspiracy To Ruin America?

I'm starting to be irritated by the word "Wokeness," I'm not sure why. When "Woke" and "Wokeness" first came up, I thought they were sort of cute.

Since the 1980s, if not earlier, we had been using the cumbersome phrase "Politically Correct" to describe the idiocies of linguistic puritanism about race and sex. "Woke" was a big improvement: it replaced a two-word seven-syllable adjectival phrase with a concise one-syllable adjective. What's not to like?

The derivative terms—"Wokeness," "the Wokerati," "the Great Awokening," et cetera were likewise cute and handy. My favorite derivative is "Wokefishing." That's when cynical young males pretend to be Woke in order to lure Woke young women into sexual engagement. I suspect my 26-year-old son of having practiced Wokefishing, but he denies it.

Handel’s Messiah is a rare work of high art that most people enjoy and a large number have actually performed in. Not surprisingly, Canadians are worked up over what Handel’s Messiah has to do with George Floyd in the same way that Canadians decided that the topic of “Rembrandt in Amsterdam” required repeated references to Turtle Island.

According to a new Pew report, 12% of black residents of the US are now foreign-born immigrants and an additional 9% of blacks have at least one black immigrant parent. Immigrants tend to prop up overall black statistics: e.g., black immigrants average $57,200 income per year compared to $42,000 per year for American-born blacks. And 31% of black immigrants have bachelor’s degrees vs. 22% of Ameri...

For more than a decade, I knew every time I called Colin Flaherty, he’d answer with: “Big Man! Whatcha got for me today?”

There was never a phone call that failed to start out this way, with enthusiasm in his voice so infectious I still smile when thinking about how he’d draw out the “ig” portion of “big” in his distinctive Tidewater accent.

“Avuncular” would be the way to describe him: he remembered details of our last conversation and would then inquire about the latest happenings in my life as if he had been there as an intimate observer.

That’s why, when he called one day in the spring of 2020, the surprise of not being greeted with that oh-so-familiar salutation meant I immediately knew something was wrong.

For those who had watched Colin’s videos about black-on-white crime over the years, it had become obvious something was impacting his health. His face was thinning out and his Falstaffian frame seemed to be shrinking.

Though the Churchillian cigar still protruded from his lips as he spoke effortlessly about the latest example of black mob violence and the corporate media’s attempt to obfuscate what was happening, it was alarming to see the physical deterioration of this man who embodied courage and tenacity throughout his life.

We chatted about Ahmaud Arbery hysteria, wondering if this would be the powder keg carefully placed by the corporate media every election year to blast out the Democrat turnout-boosting theme of perpetual black victimization (which Colin had correctly noted was the Biggest Lie Of Our Generation). Then he just blurted it out: “I’m not sure if I’m going to make much longer, Big Man.”

I don’t recall much of what he said next. The shock of a good friend telling me about a disease he wouldn’t beat was too great.

There was a long pause when he finished. He asked: “Are you still there?”

Throughout the insanity of the subsequent Covid lockdowns (“two weeks to stop the spread”) and the overreaction to a virus that 99% of victims survive, I still reflect back on that day as the defining moment of the past two years.

In many ways, I’m still without words for how to answer Flaherty’s question.

When the George Floyd apotheosis happened a month later, and that particular powder keg of anti-white animosity exploded in an orgy of violence, looting, burning and lawlessness—enhanced by academia, Corporate America and of course the corporate media—I ventured into the heart of Richmond, VA.

Walking around that city, with the smoke of the night before from cars and burnt buildings still pungent in the air, I reached the great Robert E. Lee monument, completely desecrated with anti-white  slogans and the acronym “ACAB.”

ACAB—"All Cops Are Bastards.”

The past was being erased in real time, because what Flaherty had called the Biggest Lie of our generation—that of black victimization—had set off a mighty conflagration of anti-white insurrection across America.

Standing at a monument to one of America’s greatest heroes, later torn down in celebration of the George Floyd Hoax, I was doing everything I could to fight back tears.

Then, in one of those serendipitous moments, my cell phone rang.

It was Colin.

Last year, I watched the hit Netflix satirical movie Don’t Look Up from Adam McKay, Will Ferrell’s former writer, but couldn’t think of much of pressing interest to say about the Killer Comet film. Apparently, however, huge numbers of people have watched it and argued over it, so let me jot down what little I do have to say. I have rather low standards for comedy films, so I enjoyed it even though...

The kritarchs in the immigration bureaucracy, the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), are at it again. And again they blame the backlog: the backlog they alone are responsible for. Of course, the solution to the backlog is not for them to be held responsible for their failure to do the work that resulted in the backlog.

Earlier by Patrick J. Buchanan: Why The Left Cannot Let Go Of Jan. 6

If the Left believed that draping the Capitol riot of January 6, 2021 around the neck of former President Donald Trump and the party that refused to repudiate him would sink the GOP, it appears to have miscalculated.

For, as the Left painted the Capitol riot as an "armed insurrection," "domestic terrorism," "attempted coup," and political atrocity that stands beside Pearl Harbor and 9/11 as "a day that will live in infamy," Republicans were displacing the Democrats as America's first party.

Democrats began 2021 as the preferred party of 49% of the country. Only 40% identified as Republicans.

When 2022 began, the standings had been reversed.

Earlier: Is The Black-Brown Coalition Unraveling?

Immigration is one issue on which Hispanics do not speak in one voice. Contrary to Karl Rove, many don’t really care for mass immigration and are even quite hostile to it. And if you put Hispanics under the microscope, you’ll find that hostility increases even more when it comes to the mass immigration of blacks.

Which raises an interesting point about the complexity of race relations in America. The current fixation is, of course, black vs. white, Jim Crow, the “legacy of slavery,” and “institutional racism.” But it’s worth taking a look at black vs. Hispanic, what Hispanics think of blacks, particularly immigrants, how blacks interact with other non-whites, and mass black immigration.

Those matters will be the most interesting to monitor as the country becomes less white in the following decades. In this new demographic ecosystem, blacks will be compelled to interact more with non-white immigrants and their descendants.

That does not portend a peaceful future. Black-on-Hispanic violence is epidemic. So is Black-Hispanic gang war.

They’re just another facet of the

Our media are obsessed with Donald Trump, but Trump’s obsessed with Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida. For months now, Trump’s been playing the aging silent film star Norma Desmond in “Sunset Boulevard” to DeSantis’ younger, prettier Betty Schaefer.

The insults sounded a lot like what Trump used to say about Stone:

President Joe Biden issued a stark order to Big Tech this week: “I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets. Please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that's on your shows. It has to stop” [Remarks by President Biden at Virtual Meeting on Military Deployments Supporting Hospitals for the COVID-⁠19 Response, WhiteHouse.gov, January 13, 2022]. It’s not the first time the Biden Regime has demanded more censorship from Big Tech—and it won’t be the last. Big Tech is already suppressing the Right. Twitter banned Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the George Republican, for “spreading disinformation.” Also recently banned was mRNA vaccine pioneer Robert Malone. As the 2022 midterms approach, expect more. The Left’s end game, though, is abolishing Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Happily, GOP leaders don’t seem to favor the idea. It’s a bad one that would cement Leftist control of the speech online.

Two important points to remember:

  • First, social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter are the major sources of information for a large part of the American population, including members of the Historic American Nation. Controlling social media, with the ability to censor information and ban “bad actors,” means controlling speech.
  • Second, the totalitarian controllers aren’t acting on their own. Leftist politicians and their spear-carriers in the Regime Media are pushing bans, censorship, and deplatforming with the zeal of Star Chamber judges.

After the Mostly Peaceful Unite the Right protest in Charlottesville, the loudest voices calling for tech censorship were journalists and politicians. Big Tech complied and suppressed the Alt-Right. The same thing happened after the Christchurch mosque shooting. Democrats hauled Big Tech execs before Congress to berate them and demand more censorship. Execs complied, but didn’t do enough.

Big Tech has since followed the dictates from Democrats and Journofa on the 2020 election, China Virus, and other
