Paul Craig Roberts On Charlottesville: "Identity Politics Always Leads To Violence, Americans Won't Be Spared"

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Listening to NPR this morning confirmed what I already knew. Charlottesville is being turned into another nail in President Trump’s coffin.

NPR had no interest whatsoever in reporting the actual facts about what had occurred in Charlottesville. The several “interviews” with the like-minded were orchestrated to produce the desired propaganda result: It was all Trump’s fault.

It was Trump’s fault for many reasons.

He had stirred up White Supremacists and Nazis by appealing during the presidential election campaign to their supremacist views with his slogan “America first.”

Of course, what Trump means by “America first,” is precisely what the voters understood him to mean—the interest of the broad American public should come before trade deals that serve the interests of other countries and the narrow profit interests of global corporations. However, the NPR propagandists put words in Trump’s mouth and twisted the meaning of the slogan to be “White America Comes First.”

In other words, “America first” according to NPR is code language to white supremacists to take advantage of the electoral college and elect a leader over the popular vote of the heavy population densities in the narrow geographical areas that comprise the northeast and west coasts, the centers of moral rot. Thus, Trump was the candidate of white supremacists and, thereby, illegitimate.

NPR next conveyed the message that Trump proved he was the Nazis’ candidate when he criticized both sides for the trouble in Charlottesville. NPR used its orchestrated interviews to place all blame for violence on the group that had a permit for their rally. According to NPR, the group that had no permit and formed in order to protest the rally consisted entirely of white hats defending America from free speech from alleged Nazis and racists.

There is no doubt that a rally of what is called the “alt-right” will pull into itself all sorts of extremists and that the cause of the rally, apparently defending a statue of Robert E. Lee from demolition or perhaps simply gaining attention for the organizers, was done harm by the young, apparently unbalanced, man who drove a car into counter-marchers, after the permitted rally had ended. The nonsensical element of this act has convinced some Americans that the entire scene was an orchestration by the deep state as a weapon against Trump and civil liberty.

Charlottesville has many aspects that are ignored by NPR and the rest of the presstitutes.

For example, how does the Bush/Cheney/Obama/neoconservative assertion that Americans are the “exceptional people” whose country is the “indispensable country” differ from Trump’s proclamation of “America first”? No one among the liberal/progressive/left was disturbed when Obama proclaimed to the world that Americans are the exceptional, indispensable people. Doesn’t Obama use much clearer language that puts America first? If Americans are exceptional, everyone else is unexceptional. If Americans are indispensable, everyone else is dispensable.

What is the difference?

One difference is that Obama was elected by the good people, the non-racist, non-misogynist, non-white-supremacist people, and Trump was elected by “the deplorables,” to use Hillary’s term. Little wonder she lost, having dismissed everyone between the two coasts as “deplorables.”


But she didn’t lose, right? Putin and Trump conspired to steal the election from her. Trump is illegitimate and therefore must be driven out of office. He is doubly illegitimate because white heterosexual males elected him. This bogus charge despite the fact that Hillary got 2 million less votes from women than did Obama. Either the 2 million women didn’t vote or they voted for Trump.


The other difference is that Trump’s use of “America first” refers to the loss of millions of American middle class jobs and tax base for former manufacturing cities and states, whereas the Bush/Cheney/Obama/neoconservative use of “exceptional, indispensable America” refers to Washington’s right to bomb other peoples into the stone age for not complying with Washington’s orders.

The campaign to drive Trump out of office has been going on 24/7 since Trump confounded the pundits and won the election. For the liberal/progressive/left Trump is the enemy against whom they are conducting war, and as in war, truth is crowded out by propaganda. The liberal/progressive/left gets away with this abuse of news reporting because Trump’s intent to reduce tensions with Russia is seen as threats to the income and power of the military/security complex and the hegemonic ideology of the neoconservatives. Powerful material interests, ideology, and media together comprise a very strong force against which a mere president hasn’t a chance.

Few Americans understand the fundamental transformation of their politics and society since the 1960s when the Civil Rights Act was stood on its head by EEOC compliance chief Alfred W. Bloomrosen. The Civil Rights Act explicitly prohibited racial and gender quotas as methods to combat “discrimination,” which was mainly a product of history rather than of the motivations of white males. But it is difficult to make history a villain, and social engineering benefits from having a villain to overcome. Thus was the foundation of Identity Politics laid.

The initial stage of the new politics was that quotas established privilege for “preferred minorities,” and preference began prevailing over merit.

Over the decades white males have slowly but surely experienced discrimination in university admissions, hiring, promotions, university appointments, and in their ability to exercise free speech. Remember, only a few days ago a senior male engineer at Google was fired because he expressed a truthful fact—men and women have different traits—that is unacceptable to feminists.

Perhaps somewhere at some time a woman or a black has been fired for saying something unacceptable to a white male, but I know of no such case. Indeed, it is common parlance that white heterosexual males are racists, sexists, and homophobic. This is the accepted language of Identity Politics. Few of us are brave enough to challenge it.

The liberal/progressive/left along with the media has abandoned the working class for Identity Politics. Identity Politics teaches that women, blacks, and homosexuals are all victims of white heterosexual males who are characterized as the victimizer class, that is, those who victimize others.  The doctrine delegitimizes white heterosexual males in the same way that Nazi doctrine delegitimizes Jews and communist doctrine delegitimizes capitalists. There is no difference.

Initially, white males, such as the University of Virginia history professor on NPR today who obligingly demonized the white males who do not accept their second class status, survive by mouthing Identity Politics and crawling on their knees. But this is a temporary respite. For Identity Politics the only acceptable white heterosexual males are those who admit their gender and sexual preference guilt and accept their punishment for being the victimizers of women, blacks, and homosexuals.

In 1995 in our book, The New Color Line, How Quotas and Privilege Destroy Democracy, Larry Stratton and I describe how one EEOC bureaucrat by ignoring the statutory language of the Civil Rights Act, legislation the intent of which was to enforce equality before the law, reintroduced legalized discrimination into US law, thus beginning the process of delegitimizing the white male. Today some would turn their backs on this fact, not because it is invalid but because it is politically incorrect. When our book was published 22 years ago, the major media endorsed our argument:

“A forceful and convincing case . . . vividly dramatic.” — New York Times Book Review


“There are important lessons to learn . . . not least how good intentions can go badly awry.” — The Wall Street Journal


“Roberts and Stratton make a strong case that the civil rights legislation of the 1960s has been distorted beyond recognition.” — The Washington Post

The consequence of quotas wasn’t obvious at first, and there were claims that the quotas were temporary, but today the consequence is obvious. Heterosexual white males are deplorables.

Today on NPR one male said that the views of white males who defend both themselves and dead white males from attacks should not be allowed a voice in American politics.

The liberal/progressive/left asserts that everyone knows that Robert E. Lee was an evil racist who fought for slavery and everyone who wants to protect his statue is obviously the same. Such people deserve no voice, no vote. They must be excluded from public discussion.

Imagine saying this about any other group, especially women, blacks, and homosexuals. How is it possible for the liberal/progressive/left to really believe that they are oppressed by powerful white male heterosexuals when they can demonize white males at will and prevent any backtalk?

If white males are so powerful, how can they be so easily fired by feminist thought control czars for “expressing harmful gender stereotypes.” Harmful to who? How harmful is getting fired?

As Faith Goldy and Stefan Molyneux predict, white males have had enough of their demonization and the demonization of our country’s heros. They see the writing on the wall and are organizing to defend themselves.

As anti-white male propaganda is apparently the only mental activity of which the liberal/progressive/left is capable, Faith Goldy and Stefan Molyneux are probably correct that America, broken into pieces by Identity Politics, is heading into civil war.

I wonder which side will control the nukes and bio-chemical weapons.

If the white heterosexual males lose, I wonder who will protect the white women. Are they destined for the same rape and butchery as befell German women from the Russians and Americans once the Wehrmacht surrendered?

Of course, this is an impermissible question.

The liberal/progressive/left are incapable of understanding that by demonizing white heterosexual males they are demonizing all whites and, thereby, themselves.

They should go ask the liberal whites in Rhodesia how well they are faring in Zimbabwe under Robert Mugabe. They should ask South African whites how secure they believe themselves to be now that they have turned over power and a second black political party has risen, forcing political competition between black politicians into which black party hates whites the most.

These also are impermissible questions.

Identity Politics always leads to violence, and Americans will not be spared.

These are exactly the same techniques that the nazis  used against the Jews. And the same techniques that were used  by the Bolsheviks against the Russian middle class.You know who is going to be genocided next. They are telling you already.

All politics in a multiracial country is "identity" i.e. loyalty politics. Every race is loyal to their own kind except a significant number of white traitors practice disloyalty politics.

Poor PCR the Disadvantaged white Alzheimer patient that forgets to take his medication and thinks Drumpf is the peace candidate. When he blows up the fucking planet we will have clowns like you to thank.

See what happens when the vagina loses an election. No mention when black kills black en-mass, with 9 dead and 24 shot up in Chicago last weekend. And not a white face or pointy hat anywhere around for those drivebys.  Crickets from the networks and those that care so much that they send a sacrificial martyr fat welfare mama out to bring down a statue.By the way, the Nazi's are left wing by definition.Get a feeling everyone is getting played the fool by a well funded one party technocracy police state?

The Anglo-Zionist FAKE NEWS Media carefully exploits deliberately setup events like Charlottesville while deliberately covering up the black-on-black carnage in Baltimore Murderland, Chiraq and other destitute American inner cities. It's all part of their carefully thought out, well orchestrated plans to turn America into their dream of a Leftist totalitarian state.

More like the diaboloical ideology of the Jewish Frankfurt school Jews

It is clear to me that Communism was a Jewish creation.Credit where credit is due. The Jews are master propagandists. Is not Monotheism considered a major religion, even amongst us native Indo-Europeans? How did that come about? Jewish propaganda and their propensity to target the brains of their hosts.The parasitic worm that infests the mind of the descendants of Cro-Magnon has nearly total control over Us. Few escape the reins and goads of the worm. To escape we must purge ourselves with terrible laxitives. We must rid ourselves of every taint of this mind-worm.We Must reset ourselves to the modes of thinking and the Values of our Pagan Ancestors. Does that make you uncomfortable? That discomfort is the Worm biting deeper into your brain in fright.

Of course it was them there pesky Ruskies; anyone other than the libtard, gender confused, wobbling obese heaps of MacDonald mutated protoplast living off gubmint handouts, drugged to the eyeballs that slobber at the trough of Hollyweird filth with the IQ of lice. Clearly you have swallowed that hilda beast clinton "Russia hacked our democracy" garbage hook line and sinker and can't even smell the stench of gangrene even when it has spread to the tip of your nose. I suggest a quick immersion in Orlov's "Collapse" before the inevitable. He is also Ruskie and was probably also involved in turning mass murdering anglozionazi USSA into the oozing pile of filth that the rest of humanity wants rid of already. Onward to our dooooooom!

Relax Fireman. I'm not having a go at our brothers, the Russians.They have suffered as badly from the Parasite as we have,I draw attention to the worm and its poisonous mind-slime, communism.Please try to remember to seperate the Parasite from its host.

I call on Kali Maa to destroy these illusions. Dance Kali, Dance. And wake your people. For their dreams are turned to nightmares. 

Perhaps this classic piece of Art will help.

Civil war along the lines of all those "Soros" slash CIA color-coded bouts of genocide that USSA has foisted on the rest of humanity, yes please. Get it going already and blow this sewer. You will be doing all of humanity a favor. Afterall slaughter has always been an "American" (sic) speciality; let's show the rest of ape planet how to really get the job done.

"If the white heterosexual males lose, I wonder who will protect the white women. Are they destined for the same rape and butchery as befell German women from the Russians and Americans once the Wehrmacht surrendered?"

Answer: YES

Can't remember who it was now, either Hedgeless or CogDis, posted up a book for reference on this very subject around election time, last year.…

Highly recommended, I have a copy sitting on my desk at work.

When a Swedish shepherd who wears lederhosen and spends his weekends yodeling on the flower filled hillside in back of his humble home doesn't want his daughter to be raped by a sub-Saharan African is that really a radical political point of view that leads to violence?

What leads to violence isn't that lederhosen-clad father.

It's the low-IQ, high-testosterone illiterate rapist mother f-cker who is landing on his shores.

You can call him an "identitarian" but his daughter just kisses his cheek and calls him "dad".

I am really surprised that we haven't had another false flag black church vandalism that was talked about on the media constantly and then not covered at all when black men were arrested for it.  There also wasn't any follow up.  Likely the local cops who arrested them knew they were working for somebody because there was no other motive.  I wonder who bailed them out of jail for example.

Stopped at the In N Out on Litchfield Road in Goodyear, two weeks ago. It was after 10 pm or so on a Saturday.

I was the only non-Hispanic in there. Just one, yours truly.

No English spoken, just Spanish by overweight people, all of them dressed very shabbily and smothered in tattoos. I became keenly aware of the need to carry a Glock (I was unarmed - foolish).

I was stationed at Luke AFB from 2002-2005, and Goodyear was nothing like that.

Phoenix is a death trap, now.

I notice most of these Far left supporters dressed all in Black with black masks appear to be young college educated white males, I wonder how these individuals are going to feel 5 or 10 years down the road when they find themselves being discriminated against in the work force because of their color and privilege?I think that might be interesting, myself, I'm old and I don't care, another election along soon and this time if the 'wrong' person wins the military industrial complex constantly baying for war who these lefty Liberals support will probably blame China.Its a strange situation when the Liberals scream for extreme minority rights but also support the slaughter of countless woman and children world wide in Liberal wars and support Saudi Arabia who has an atrocious human rights record.I don't understand it, but as I said I'm old.

If it wasn't so pathetic, it'd be hilarious.The sociopathic financiers continue to lie and steal from all sides,while all sides continue to fight each other, rather than the sociopaths.Wonder who financed the tiki lights.  Somebody paid for them.

Which reminds me of the Star Trek episode "Day of The Dove.""A malevolent alien that thrives on the aggressive emotions of others lures the Enterprise and a Klingon ship to a planet using false distress signals, then manipulates the situation so that the Federation and Klingons are all imprisoned together on the Enterprise. There, the alien begins to warp their minds to get them to fight each other so as to keep feeding the alien's need for aggression."Today those malevolent aliens are the sociopathic financiers.

This is divide and conquer combined with dismantling our structure. They don't care about any of these groups. In the end we are all targets. I found a cool book on mind control control tech with the forward done posthumously by Anthony Sutton.  In that intro Sutton talks about a man named William Peter Blatty who both wrote and produced the Exorcist.  He was a former CIA operative and had "an extensive career in government psychological manipulations".  What were they doing with the exorcist?  If you understand the subconscious you will understand almost everything they do."The most effective way to protect yourself from subconscious manipulation is to understand how it works. The techniques used to enslave the mind are the ones to free it. The effective way to conquer a man is to capture his mind. Control a mans mind and you control his body. The principals of mind programming, hypnotic suggestion and mind control are ancient..."Free:

I  just checked out Antifa. Apparently you can join and get paid $25-45 an hour to protest with them. Soros pays pretty good. So they are paid to incite violence. That makes them a mercenary group and therefore enemy combatants.
