Announcement to federal workers: You get today off from work for racial reckoning reasons. Honest. I’m not making this up to try to get you fired. Congress and Biden just gave you Friday off for some obscure event in Texas history. It’s all part of the Great Letharginization that began in March 2020. So go back to sleep. [Comment at Unz.com]...

Previously: Base Dragging GOP, Conservatism Inc. Into Fight Against Critical Race Theory—But They Still Flinch From Calling It Anti-White Racism

America just got a new federal holiday. President Biden signed “Juneteenth National Independence Day” into law Thursday (June 17). The Senate vote was unanimous, and just 14 House members, all Republicans, voted against it. The holiday, which commemorates the day in 1865 that Union armies proclaimed the end of slavery in Texas, is yet another occasion to celebrate blacks, on top of Martin Luther King Day and Black History Month. Supposedly about slavery, it inevitably means more condemnation of the whites who practiced it, reinforcing the 1619 Project’s preposterous claim that blacks are the real founders of America. This demonstrates the fatal limitations of the Congressional GOP and the Conservative Establishment. They say they oppose Critical Race Theory, but they just backed a holiday that enshrines CRT as state ideology. Only one Republican, Rep. Matt Rosendale of Montana, explained the path for the GOP to preserve the Historic American Nation.

Juneteenth almost became a federal holiday last year.  It was blocked by Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, who recently appeared to be emerging as patriot champion. But he only ever said he opposed Juneteenth for budgetary reasons, suggesting it replace Columbus Day. He did not oppose its passage this year.

That left Rosendale to lead a few brave Republicans to oppose it. “Let’s call an ace an ace,” Rosendale said. “This is an effort by the Left to create a day out of whole cloth to celebrate identity politics as part of its larger efforts to make Critical Race Theory the reigning ideology of our country” [House Passes Bill to Make Juneteenth a Federal Holiday, by Dareh Gregorian and Haley Talbot, NBC News, June 16, 2021].

Rosendale got to the heart of the matter on Twitter:

I voted against a bill that would make Juneteenth National Independence Day a federal holiday. … This legislation is the culmination of decades of efforts by the Left to prevent unashamed celebrations of our national story, heritage, and history.”

But more than that, Rosendale tweeted, Juneteenth will supplant July 4, just as MLK usurped the place of American presidents:

Earlier, by James Fulford: Happy Independence Day—“Juneteenth” For The Historic American Nation!

By a vote of 30-1 in the House, with unanimous support in the Senate, Juneteenth, June 19, which commemorates the day in 1865 when news of Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation reached Texas, has been declared a federal holiday

It is to be called Juneteenth Independence Day.

Prediction: This will become yet another source of societal division as many Black folks celebrate their special Independence Day, and the rest of America continues to celebrate July 4 as Independence Day two weeks later.

Why the pessimism? Consider.

(This is the afterword of The Great Purge: The Deformation of the Conservative Movement, originally published in 2014)

President John F. Kennedy is supposed to have replied, when questioned how he became a war hero: “It was involuntary. They sank my boat.” This is pretty much how I feel about becoming a victim of the most recent, and in some ways the most peculiar, of the purges that have periodically swept through, and ultimately killed, the American Conservative Movement ™. My time came in the late 1990s, as patriotic immigration reformers were being extirpated—in my case, from National Review—and, more importantly, from the congressional Republican party, where the consensus behind the modestly restrictionist Smith-Simpson bill, which embodied the recommendations of the bipartisan Jordan Commission, was broken up by a campaign of lies and lobbying.

Nearly 20 years later, immigration patriots have still not recovered. And, consequently, the point at which American Whites—known, for most of the nation’s history, as “Americans”—became a minority in the country they created has gone from being a hypothetical abstraction to (barring a miracle, which can happen in politics, by the way) a mathematical certainty.

I had spent virtually all of my journalistic career safely in the briar patch of financial journalism. I emerged with care, partly because the end of the Cold War appeared to have broken the Left’s grip on public discourse, partly because I naively thought our erstwhile libertarian and neoconservative allies might actually be swayed by rational argument, but most of all because my close friend John O’Sullivan had gotten editorial control of National Review.

Earlier by Ann Coulter On "Voting Rights": It’s "Racist" Not To Let Democrats Cheat

The official position of Fox News is that the Democrats’ John Lewis vote-stealing bill is “narrower” than the Democrats’ “For the People” vote-stealing bill. (This will be an exhibit in my museum titled, “Stupid People Can Never Help Your Cause.”)

Yes, it’s “narrower” in the sense of being 1 MILLION times worse. The John Lewis bill will do everything the “For the People” bill does—and so much more! They just don’t tell us what, exactly.  The language of the bill is full of anodyne, uplifting language about equal voting participation—but the details will be turned over to left-wing zealots at the Department of Justice, suddenly empowered to enforce voting rules so insane that no elected official would dare vote for them.

Inasmuch as nearly every congressional Democrat is fine with the provisions in the “For the People” bill—which are ludicrous—imagine how much worse the “You Can’t Blame Me” bill is.

It will be faceless bureaucrats at the Department of Justice who give meaning to the happy words in the John Lewis bill. Federal government employees—i.e., the people actually making the rules—cannot be voted out of office. (Or fired—this is government work.) Indeed, these are people who could never be elected to any office on account of their repellent political views and, often, repellent physical appearance.

Another day, another de-banking. Imagine a ruthless country where peaceful citizens who fearlessly defend their heritage, their families and their faith can wake up in the morning and find themselves cut off from their entire life savings with no explanation and no recourse. That country is not Russia, China, North Korea, Venezuela or Iran.

That country is America in 2021.

On Tuesday, 33-year-old Lauren Witzke received a terse notice from her bank, Wells Fargo. The available balance on her account read "$0.00." Her entire life savings of roughly $15,500 had been transferred to "loss prevention." Was this a case of theft or fraud? Had her account been compromised? Nope.

"When I called, Wells Fargo told me that it was a 'business decision,'" Witzke recounted, "and that they have the right to close my account at any time."

A Wells Fargo representative told Witzke, who is working out of state and has no other bank account, that she would be barred from retrieving her funds at any branch office and that they would "mail a check." You know how that goes. Wells Fargo did not respond to my phone messages and email inquiries regarding Witzke's case.
