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.

I've been reading Thomas Frank's Listen Liberal and it's an excellent synopsis of the failure of society as a whole, but having the Democrats essentially becoming ruled by "professionals."  He argues that these "professionals" have contempt for those who are not winners because they (falsely) believe that education is the cure-all.  Just like how Republicans and Rightwingers think tax cuts are the cure-all.  Low growth?  Tax cuts!  High growth?  Tax cuts!  Dealing with poverty and income inequality?  Tax cuts!  The Democratic leadership basically says the same crap reflexively but with the word "education" instead and it's time we start laughing at it.  These "professionals" are not in positions because of merit, but because the establishment is a racket and will only hire those of a similar educational bent to continue their monopolistic practices.  The Ivy League is vocational training for the corrupt elite.No wonder the education racket feels emboldened because the "professionals" have convinced them they are the center of the universe and all that is Good.I almost puked when I saw Schumer and Pelosi's "Better Deal."  Very same arguments and policy ideas they've been peddling since the 1990s.  Should be called "Same Old Sh*t That Hasn't Worked for 30 Years But We Can Pretend Otherwise Because Dammit Academics Have Blessed It".E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G is a racket now.

@ Raging,

Historically, thats exactly what every Country that has ever fallen under the rule of Communism have in common.

Every regime attempted to eradicate that Countires Culture to Indoctrinate future Generations in their new Image.

Communist achieved Genocide by Marginalizing Individuals within segments of Society by ostracizing their Identities to impose their own Ideology of Communism.

"America Last!" is a sad platform, but mostly what N.P.R. and the snowflakes want.I wonder how that will work out for them when the Atlas's leave the U.S.S.A.?

Ummm, there were no Khazars in the backwater Roman territory of Palestine back when the supposed son of God Jewish miracle worker walked the Earth. So how can they be Christ killers? I mean at least make up a rational conspiracy. Anyway, this is besides the point. So a pro-Obama Occupy CIA Roman Catholic Crypto Jew whatever organizes a bunch of Nazis to march to support the Confederate States of America. This means that the President of the United States of America, a nation that fought both the Nazis and the Confederacy should support the Nazi-Confederacy cause because they're "America First"? And since it was an obvious trap, why the hell stick your foot in your mouth over and over again. You tell your speech writers to write some Obama hopey-changey sounding unify the country bullshit and make a goddamn Presidential sounding statement calling out supporters of America's enemies. Duh. And then you get that actual Nazi Soros and nail him to a goddamn cross on the White House lawn. This shit shouldn't be this hard....

They were hired as expert, practiced cult impalers for gold by Rome - whose mass terror from "tens of thousands" of "crucifixions," for twice denying Caesar was God, built the Empire/Church - from Khazaria's capital cities, Gog and Magog (now called "Jews" or Ashkenazim) ..."Gog" in Bible prophecy, accursed "Damascus," the descent of Uz-ben-Shem the genome proves are descended of 350 from 6-800 years ago, the cult psychosis, partners in satanic psychopathy with the pedo homo Anti-Christ, the "Risen Babylon" we came to America in express covenant with God to escape, now attacking true "Israel," God's "Promised Land," America, the "nation of unwalled villages." Ezek. 38:11N.B. Even the Khazar presenting as "American" "Jews" can repent. They must simply turn away from their satanic cult psychosis, seek only holiness and righteousness as do all proper Americans, and find God Almighty, America's named Sovereign, the perfect, present Creator of the universe.

"kikes are masters of deception they steal names of europen ethnicities to HIDE behind"

That's actually not true.  The reason most German "jews" have names like XXXbergs and XXXsteins is that Germany tried to assimilate them and made Jews adopt Germanic names in the 18th and 19th centuries (yeah, didn't work for 3000 years before that, it's the world's most extreme ethno-supremacist cult, but that hasn't stopped people from trying, but in reality the Jews are the Borg and they assimilate everyone else).In fact there was a lot of discussion about this in Germany and even Karl Marx (as misunderstood as he is) penned an essay called "On the Jewish Question" in which he urged Jews to assimilate and stop being Jews:

Once society has succeeded in abolishing the empirical essence of Judaism – huckstering and its preconditions – the Jew will have become impossible, because his consciousness no longer has an object, because the subjective basis of Judaism, practical need, has been humanized, and because the conflict between man’s individual-sensuous existence and his species-existence has been abolished.The social emancipation of the Jew is the emancipation of society from Judaism.

Of course that didn't happen and the most tribalistic of them all became the Communist "luminaries" who tried to take over the world with a totalitarian dictatorship.  Well, still trying ....  Just now it's the "oppressed minority" instead of the "oppressed worker" who is the "lumpenproletariat" battering ram for their ambitions.

Of course it was a setup.The major lesson here is that once a White advocacy group has put itself at the mercy of the government for 1) a permit and 2) police protection, they have just bent over and grabbed their own ankles.  They're just begging for a screwing.No.  Whites need to organize and stage rallies on private land, providing their own security, and then putting out the images and content on the internet.  Staging ever larger rallies will build momentum, free of govt's destructive efforts.It's amazing that this still needs to be said in 2017, but here it is-- If you are a White male, the govt is NOT your friend.

The left is trying to obtain a majority faction through replacement migration. There's been a slight hiccup in the plan though so now they're getting impatient and attempting a soft coup while employing Agitprop, political violence and intimidation.Civil War is coming soon. If you're white and you're not already you need to get out of the big cities, get in shape and get armed immediately.For my part I've seen enough. There can be no negotiation with those who openly state they seek your destruction and political disenfranchisement. Fuck them.If it's war they want it's war they'll get.And they'll get Rekt.

Giving "moral" justification to victims of child and infant rape and incest suffering from LGBTQ abomination, rather than teaching them to recognize and damn the caregiver or family member who did it to them, is the technique used by the Risen Babylon - the pedo homo Anti-Christ we came to America in express covenant with God to escape - to destroy "the righteous remnant of the House of Israel," the sovereign American People.Soros is Rosenstein is Rothschild is Rome, as is Rockefeller, Bush, Clinton, Obama, Mueller. Mr. Trump is anointed of God and the People must unite in prayer, holiness and righteousness, that the Beast of (((Gog))) and Babylon now attacking our "Israel Restored," God's actual prophesied "Promised Land," be fully and completely cast down, as foretold, praise God.Viz. Ezekiel 38:11

Just wait until individuals such as myself begin to openly reject the Cybergenetic Trans-Humanist's and Electronic Virtual Intelligent Life froms.  We will no doubt be labeled anti-human and anti-EVIL.  For which, the punishment will be forced re-education or destruction.

  It amazes me that so many people walk through life with their smartphones 2 inches from their noses every waking hour.  I would imagine a portion of them will be the among the first ones who voluntarily get chipped in the eye.  Think google glasses without the glasses.  It's weird to really listen to people like Ray Kurzweil talk about AI.Disclaimer, I own several Kurzweil synths as they've got the most advanced archetecture when it comes to sound generation.  He's the only one of the manufacturers who designed his own chips which feature the most advanced sound synthesis (VAST).
