My worst fear.

And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.
-- Dover Beach by Matthew Arnold.
Early Skirmishes in a Race War
One of the reasons for being glad to be as old as I am is that I may be spared living to see a race war in America. Race wars are often wars in which nobody wins and everybody ends up much worse off than they were before.
Initial skirmishes in that race war have already begun, and have in fact been going on for some years. But public officials pretend that it is not happening, and the mainstream media seldom publish it at all, except in ways that conceal what is really taking place.
For American society, a dangerous polarization has set in. Signs of this polarization over the years include opposite reactions between blacks and whites to the verdict in the O. J. Simpson murder case, the “rape” charges against Duke University students, and the trials resulting from the beating of Rodney King and the death of Trayvon Martin.
More dangerous than these highly publicized episodes over the years are innumerable organized and unprovoked physical attacks on whites by young black gangs in shopping malls, on beaches, and in other public places all across the country today.
A three-sided race war in this country would destroy any hope of restoring the repubic and would lead, inevitably, to an American Hitler. The black community would not survive it -- indeed, it would look a lot like the final solution. As the smallest of the racial groups in numbers, they would be expunged, and then the rest of the country would be split between whites and Reconquistas. We can win a 4GW against American tyranny. No one wins a race war. No one. Yet I cannot fault Sowell's analysis. We are slipping down the bloody path to ignorant tribal armies clashing by night.

Had we freed all of north America under our control in 1789 White Black and native we could have left the horrid sin of slavery and genocide to Europe and Arabia. But the founders chose greed , wrote the sin of slavery into the constitution and made the civil war ,and permanent racial strife inevitable. All of our great national troubles flow from this one act. "The sins of the father" being visited on the sons has never been truer than it is now.---and you'r right Mike , this is now unstoppable. But it will be five sided not three as it will be but one component in a bloody decade long civil war that none of us "old men" will live to see the end of---God protect our children.---Ray

OG- you're right, but now we have to have illegals picking it.

The philosophical predecessor to most other forms of political organization is tribalism. When the Enlightenment ideas that support higher forms of political organization are destroyed, then the default setting is tribalism. As the recent interventions in both Iraq and Afghanistan demonstrate, without the needed philosophical base, a modern representative republic cannot be established or maintained.

I've said for years that race baiters like sharpton and jackson--and now 0bama--have been playing race roulette--they just keep spinning that cylinder and one of these times they're going to hit a loaded chamber.

Unfortunately, I think we may have already hit it. It's just developing slower than expected. And it's not going to end well--for anyone.

It's coming.

And it's been ginned-up and carefully stoked for YEARS in radical black reformed "churches" and now, mosques....until needed.

COUNT on the fact that the Free S--- Army will be flash mobbed and vectored directly from Valerie Jarret's I-pod this time. NOT by some long dead, well-meaning black pastor who once had a dream.

For those of you not tactically aware, a bow-tie suited black man at a rally or public speaking event is often radical Muslim or black liberation church HARD CORE. These gentlemen may be trained in martial arts and / or boxing for "security" as well.

Bow Tie = Trouble

They need to consult with the Indians. As the old Indian Chief said "the white men are as many as the leaves on the trees."

Nobody lives long enough to not see war and race wars, not on Earth. More important to be prepared, than to worry about the moralities and philosophies.

Humans tend towards clannish and quarrelsome. I do not see this changing.

The parallels drawn in Chittums book CIVIL WAR II are getting very close, I definitely think it is possible that a race war in my lifetime (next 20 years) will occur. Its a shame - the election of Obama was supposed to signal that Race no longer mattered in America and instead, its made it much MUCH worse.

Racism is stupid as idiots in all colors / creeds exist. Life is hard enough as it is - why stir up trouble over the color of ones skin, its not like we have a choice before we are born.

Who will fight who ? I'm not sure, the Hispanic and Black communities certainly do not share much in common (except for that crappy 'whale fart' music they play).

Anon 5:36 - cotton for a lot of farms is now picked by machine, but you are correct, a lot of fruit is still picked by migrant farm workers. That is a very hard vocation - my mother was raised during the 1930's and her family was employed as migrant farm workers.

Blacks / Whites / Hispanics were all in the fields and even then there wasn't much love between the races.

Fortunately, winter is coming, at least in the northern states, so we have some breathing room before the lead starts to fly. If you live in a large, or even medium sized metro area, get out now. I just cannot conceive anyone surviving a bug in situation in a city. There is no substitute for mobility when the thugs make their move. That's both street corner thugs and jack booted thugs. Sowell has issued a storm warning, that if ignored, will be at your peril.

In the northern states, winter is coming. Street corner thugs usually like to raise hell in the summer months. Jack booted thugs seem to prefer April. So we may have some breathing room before the lead starts to fly. No matter though. I'm old and tired of worrying about it. Today is as good a day as any to get it on.

Tom III; Morality is far more important than any level of "preparation" could ever be. Without morality and ethics we are no better than the gangbangers or the Nazis. We become the very "ends justify the means" communist we claim to oppose.---Ray

Somebody should go ask the Tutsi's if nobody ever wins a race war. If you can find any.

aymepaA radical collectivist leader with a horde of vapid,mind-numbed followers willing to commit murder for Him,who allows all manner of perversions among his believers. Who wants to kick-start a race war to enable him to take power in the ashes of the conflict. Where have seen this before boys and girls?.....
Now that you have gone through all the global despots in history,please turn your attention to California:1969, Yep,that's right,good 'ol Charlie Manson used the same strategy the usurper is using."Hope and Change" ="Helter Skelter"

'Race wars are often wars in which nobody wins and everybody ends up much worse off than they were before.'

The painting is 'L'Enigme' by Gustav Doree who ha famously illustrated original editions of The Bible and Dante's Inferno.

This painting illustrates that the ONLY winner is Satan (the fallen angel in the painting) and the beast. They are beginning their own little private orgy after they have seen to the destruction of humanity, figuratively and maybe literally.

At least, if there is a race war, I will know who to shoot, without a lot of ambiguity.

Historian said...

It is lack of attention to philospohy that has allowed the poisonous doctrines of collectivism, which is simply tribalism dressed up in new clothes, to thrive. This is precisely why we need to understand the ideas involved.

With that said, those who are thinking of fomenting a race war would do well to read Jack London's "the Inevitable White Man" or "Yah, Yah, Yah" before they make a terrible mistake.

@Anonymous: "They need to consult with the Indians. As the old Indian Chief said "the white men are as many as the leaves on the trees.""

That was true then, but the trees are in autumn now. The only group eliminating itself faster than whites is the Japanese.

What is it with the Pussy Whipped hand wringing.

The whites have taken care of dead beats for Hundreds of years and now you guys , YOU know who we are supposed to feel guilty because a bunch of parasites want it all for free and are willing to kill us to get it.

Sorry I have had plenty of Irish Catholic Guilt all my life , but not over this crap.

Like I said over at NRO, Sowell minces words and pussies about , give me a Larry Elder or Dr. Manning any day.

Historian said...

JTS- it all depends where in these presently united States you are talking about. Californicatia? Mordor on the Potomac? People's Republics of Maryland, Nieu Joysey, Neuvo York? Yup, you are right.

Utah? Idaho? Flyover country? Not so much right now, and that will change even more as the disincentives to having children, and the incentives for having children with no means of support are de facto if not dejure eliminated from the body politic.

When dollars become worthless, only the productive will have anything to trade, and mouths you cannot feed will rapidly change from being a guaranteed paycheck to a massive liability. For a short time.

Anonymous@5:27PM: You're making the mistake a lot of modern observers make, that our present system of top-down coercive Federalism is the way it's always been, and that the framers had simply to demand compliance and the states would have fallen in line. In fact, the ground truth in 1789 was that you had fractious independent countries being wooed into a federal framework that many did not trust, and they did not have to join. If they had demanded the states free their slaves as a precondition to joining the union they could have simply walked away. The framers didn't "choose greed", they lacked the leverage to demand abolition. The 3/5 compromise was likely the best they could have achieved in that time and that place.

OUR worst fear:

It's terrible, beyond imagining, impossible to predict the outcome, horrible to contemplate... but inevitable.

Just as we will not vote our way out of this mess: we will not intimidate and defeat our tormentors by simply brandishing our rifles (300 at a time) or with psyops or slogans, let alone facts and reason. Nor will the few be able to "starve the monkeys" as Denninger advocates.

The regime have a near monopoly on the first two and the third and fourth mean nothing to them. They have a lot of 'rifles' as well which they think are superior to ours.

They are cynical, as opposed to idealistic, True Believers, which means that, insofar as practicality
is concerned, anything goes. Principle means nothing to them. No crime, no abomination is beyond them to achieve their goal.

So get over the idea that we can win somehow without "the unthinkable" and consider how we just survive and win, to perhaps build anew.

Embrace the suck. That's all there is for the foreseeable......

Racial conflict (kept at a low roar) is in the ruling class interest - divide and conquer.

My problem with Sowell's commentary about "news" outlets suppressing the reporting of race is the implicit assumption that liars should stop lying on this one point, then we will be better off. Why is anyone listening to the Ministry of Propaganda at all? It's not just their reporting of race that is off, it's everything that comes out of their mouths.
