Got privilege? Well, apparently you do, if you happen to be a white Christian male. After all, America was founded by white people for white people, so they say.
The White Privilege Conference of 2014 was an orgy of victimization and racism under the guise of empowerment. White conference attendees were separated from attendees "of color," because, well you know, they might feel "uncomfortable" and unable to speak freely with the evil white man in the room. Seriously. In the name of ending racism, they are re-instituting segregation.
Such thinking is permeating college campuses where at Harvard, a group called "HKS Speaks Out" has successfully lobbied to include "privilege training" during orientation at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. (Note: Harvard claims it is not starting a new program on privilege, and therefore the story is being reported as "false," but they are doing a "revamp" of their existing diversity program. Uh huh.) If you travel the reams of self-indulgent whining on the HKS Speaks Out Tumblr archive, we're told, piously, that the solution to the problem of white privilege is that "Our white friends should remember that they are white.”
These zealots are now teaching our children:
I have one major observation for these bitter, victim-focused haters of white people:
If you think white Christians are bad, just wait until the Communist Chinese own your sorry ass.
You have to marvel at the lack of awareness of world socio-political events shown by the American grievance crowd. It's not surprising, considering that CNN has been spending far too much time analyzing everything Donald Sterling has said to death, while completely ignoring any real news, including the back story behind the purported federal land grab in Nevada.
Dr. Jim Garrow, a former CIA agent and recent darling of the alternative media, has been telling us in ominous terms that what is really going on with the brouhaha over Cliven Bundy's cattle grazing is that the Feds are selling out America to the Chinese. (Check out his interview with Dave Hodges of the Common Sense Show.)
The bottom line: We have debts we can't pay.
Therefore, the Chinese own us. Literally.
Now, anyone who has been paying attention to things (besides their own sense of entitlement and hatred of anyone who is more successful) might have noticed that China has been quietly buying up parcels of land in America.
China is also planning a high-speed train to America. Now, if you are one of the few Americans today who can correctly identify that China and America happen to be separated by a vast ocean, you may wonder how that might be. Well, they plan to run the train under the Bering Strait and down through Canada.
That's gotta be expensive. But hey, the US taxpayers are paying for it, considering all the money we owe China!
If I didn't know any better, I'd wager that China is working on a soft invasion of America.
Now let me put on my tin foil hat for a moment and consider the strange and sudden rise of "white privilege" as a focus for the grievance crowd. It's gotten to be so pervasive that I've even been lectured by a white man about how the Constitution is inherently "racist" because the Founding Fathers were white men, land owners, and slave owners.
Who is behind this manipulative, evil propaganda?
For a lot of conspiracy theorists, they would immediately say it was the New World Order.
(Yes, this anti-Constitution movement is evil. For as much as the Founding Fathers might have been flawed people, their principles of freedom are universal, and anyone who conspires to throw the baby out with the Constitutional bathwater is a friend to tyranny.)
However, as of late, I've been thinking that the Western New World Order is a bit behind the curve. So let me take a little detour here into the land of conspiracy and wild speculation.
Jim Garrow seems to think that Putin is a puppet like Obama - but I don't take what Garrow says as gospel. This is a guy who is purportedly a whistleblower of sorts, but when it comes to a direct question, he often puts on his Mr. Mysterious persona and smugly says something like: "I'm not at liberty to say."
Of course, radio host Dave Hodges eats this up. He loves to respond with something like, "Well, I'm going to speculate here, and you don't have to respond to this, but I think this means that <insert wild theory here>."
It's great theater. It makes for compelling radio, and it's much more interesting than CNN pundits whining about how could Donald Sterling threaten sue the NBA when he already admitted to Anderson Cooper that he was in the wrong!
(I mean, we all know that if it was said to Anderson Cooper, it is written in stone for the ages!)
With his little game of cat and mouse with Garrow, Dave Hodges has thrown out the idea that the Chinese own the Federal Reserve, and since Jim Garrow did not say no, then it must be so!
It's possible. But you should be just as critical when listening to Jim Garrow as you would Anderson Cooper. In the least, people are fallible.
So I'm going to disagree with Jim Garrow here on his one point about Putin being a puppet of the West. Certainly, I'm not a super secret spy with sources in the deep bowels of the United States government. I can only go on my gut here. I just don't think Putin is part of the Western New World Order, despite Obama's promises to him to "be more flexible."
What we have brewing is an Eastern alliance that is much more dangerous and potentially world-altering than some aging elite families and their Western plans for world dominance.
We have two massive countries, Russia and China, who are tired of playing second fiddle to the United States.
We have the European Union - the beginnings of the New World Order in action - flailing around miserably in a sea of debt and financial mismanagement.
And we have the United States, mired in debt it can never repay, and beholden to citizens who have been feeding off the government trough, fattened up like pigs for the slaughter.
This is prime time for Russia and China to smash America like a bug.
Do the Chinese own the Federal Reserve? Does it really matter in the grand scheme of things? We're screwed either way.
Now, back to the White Privilege Conference. I have been reading this fascinating book by a former KGB intelligence officer - Disinformation: Former Spy Chief Reveals Secret Strategies for Undermining Freedom, Attacking Religion, and Promoting Terrorism - about how the Soviet Union used propaganda to undermine the West.
Who has the most to benefit from a racial war in the United States? Who has the most to benefit from destroying allegiance to the United States Constitution?
Who is planning to build a high-speed train to America?
Here's the thing. If you listen to conventional conspiracy theory, the standard meme is that the Western elites are dumbing Americans down to destroy the country and make way for global government.
Here's the major flaw in this theory: Is it really that smart to make your own side really, really stupid and helpless? The one huge difference between Western Socialism and Chinese Communism is this:
The Chinese work their butts off!
I just find it fascinating that the focus of the naive American left is not to teach people how to survive and thrive in this world (white privilege or no), but to try to tear down others so they are less successful. Uh yeah, that's going to work out real well for you when America fades and China becomes the dominant world power.
Who do you think is going to win? A gazillion Chinese who work hard and study hard (to the point of suicide), or a bunch of dumb, pampered Americans who are busy whining about the straight white guy speaking up too much in his college art history class?
Pay attention to the propaganda being flung around right now. On the one hand, if, say, the Chinese are truly hoping the Americans fall for the bogus idea that the Constitution is worth scrapping because of "white privilege," then CNN is most certainly playing into this, purposefully or not.
At the same time, it's quite clear that the American media is desperate to make Putin look evil. What is surprising to me is how many Americans see through this. Many comments I've read on articles Russia's stance towards homosexuality talk about how the Western media is purposefully trying to make Putin look bad. After all, what happens every day to people who veer off the straight and narrow path in Islamic countries is much, much worse.
The constant barrage of anti-Putin media smacks of fear to me, honestly. The Western elites are losing control.
My completely unsubstantiated theory right now is that the Western elites have miscalculated in their global governance plans. They overreached with the European Union, promised too much to their citizens, and arrogantly assumed Russia and China were not real threats.
Right now, the Western elites are on the defensive with Putin, and working overtime to undermine the growing Russian hegemony. The West thought they could easily take Ukraine without blowback, and are now stunned to find out that they can't just get what they want that easily.
Meanwhile, China is the silent dragon, waiting to strike.
And during this massive shift in world power, naive, angry American activists are busy pointing fingers at white Western men as being the sole source of evil in the world. Doh!
They are in for a big surprise when the political wind shifts and the new face of power is not white at all.
And those non-white men in power aren't going to just let people sit at home collecting welfare. They are going to make people work for their bowl of rice.
I, for one, welcome our new Chinese overlords!
