My oldest daughter dropped in last night and we watched some of the Baltimore coverage. She told me that she had been upset to see a spray-painted message on the side of a building on the southside of Birmingham where she works that read "White Genocide."
"AgitProp," I commented, "and damned effective agitprop at that." Of course I had to explain what Agitprop was and how I'd been trained in it back in my "Benedict Arnold period."
She thought the graffitti was advocating the genocide of the white race. I shook my head. "You're meant to think so, of course, but it was probably spray-painted by a Kluxer or a neoNazi." As agitprop, I explained, it is brilliantly simple -- two words, which can be interpreted by whites as an advocacy of their own destruction by blacks, by blacks as a warning that whitey is out to get them, and by the inner circle as a free advertisement of their white racist beliefs. These days, if you have a phrase or a concept that you don't understand, you don't go to a dictionary, you do an Internet search on it. Do a search on "white genocide" and see what comes up first. And after searching a bit this morning, here is a local story about it.
The Kluxers and the neoNazis, I explained to her, were having a recruiting field day since Ferguson, and Baltimore put an exclamation point on their racial collectivist beliefs. Of course, the criminal antics of the black underclass in Baltimore and elsewhere make the racial collectivists' lies easier to swallow, coming as they do with a great dose of fear of race war. Who wouldn't be disturbed by an alliance between the Crips, the Bloods, the Black Guerrilla Family and the Nation of Islam? Of course, any power they think they have (or that the Kluxers can exaggerate to their recruiting benefit), is wildly overblown and falls under the category of "be careful what you wish for, you may get it."
As a young acquaintance of mine pointed out, "When inner city black gangsters get racially worked up and upset, they burn and loot their own neighborhoods. When whites get racially worked up and upset, they burn and loot ENTIRE CONTINENTS." I commented, "Yeah, just ask the Indians."
While watching the Baltimore coverage, I also commented upon the obvious presence of white communists in the crowd, including a white guy circulating on a bicycle. After I pointed it out, it became a game of "where's Comrade Waldo?" "There he is again," my daughter would point. "How do you know he's a communist?" "Because," I explained, "that's where I would have a cell member operating."
I also pointed out the marvelous opportunity for real tragedy, for creating an incident that would play right into the communists' hands. Looking at the police line and the crowd last night, I observed: "All they need is a sniper armed with a rifle about three hundred meters behind the cops and another one three hundred meters behind the crowd. The first shot comes from behind the cops into the chest of someone about to chuck a rock. A second volley of shots, no more than three or four, instantly comes from behind the crowd into the cops. Then another volley into innocents in the crowd coming from behind the cops. Both snipers then dump arms and exfiltrate. Race war America, all captured live on CNN."
My daughter was horrified. "Could that really happen," she asked. Well, I told her if I was a communist or a neoNazi that's how I would do it. She looked at me as if I was an alien about to devour a baby, which is pretty good description of any collectivist -- Nazi, communist, racial or religious.
Look, I told her, back in 90s I crossed swords with Dennis Mahon during the private investigation of the OKC bombing and Operation White Rose. I have an audio tape around here of Mahon telling me over the phone just how the race war he sought was going to kick off. He explained that first he and his neoNazi pals would dress up in black face and go to the white communities of Tulsa where he lived and do some "drive-bys." They would then change cars, strip off the black face and go to the black neighborhoods and do the same things. I explained to my daughter that collectivists of any stripe never cared about the deaths of innocents, only how events could be manipulated or manufactured to their advantage.
"And you used to be one of them?!?" she asked incredulously. Not a Nazi but a communist, but yes, I admitted, to my eternal shame and with no excuses, I had been. I know how they think. "There is no morality," I told her, "only crimes of opportunity that advance the party line."
I'm afraid she got more of an education than she bargained for last night, but the fact of the matter is that the elites in this country (and world-wide) seem to believe that encouraging a race war -- what would surely be a three-sided race war -- is in their best interests. How else to explain the Obama-Holder-Sharpton race machine combined with the amnesty push? Seen in context, anyone who allows themselves to be drug down into fighting it is dancing to the tune of George Soros and Company. Something we Three Percenters should keep firmly in mind.
It was heartening to see the scenes of neighborhood folks interposing themselves between the cops and the crowd, and especially the footage of the momma beating the crap out of her kid for participating and wearing a face mask. Is it enough? I don't know. I pray that it is, but that's not the way to bet.
