Over the transom, originally at the time of the Charlotte “protests”/riots:
I saw a conversation in which several BLM folks confided their belief that “white people in America” (however they define that) will give them whatever they want because “white [American] people are afraid of violence.”
I didn’t want my Facebook account demolished, so I refrained from commenting. I’ll just synthesize my thoughts below, as developed by myself and as seen by others smarter than me:
Mainstream non-ghetto-thug-culture American people (regardless of race) do not fear violence. They actually are quite comfortable with it. They simply refrain from use of force except as a last resort, or they channel it into sports. They don’t fear violence, they actually like it — too much. Why? Because they are good at it. The best in the world. War, real kill-people-and-breaks-things war (not nation-building), is simply another form of business for them. They organize it (and I’m not talking about Facebook/Twitter posts either), turn it into a business, industrialize it, weaponize it, deploy it, and keep on deploying it repeatedly until clearly-defined conditions for victory are achieved. They don’t fight randomly or categorically; they fight according to their business plan (hint: anyone who has taken a Marketing class immediately recognizes Psyops for what it is).
They go so far as to build a hidden research city (Oak Ridge, Tennessee) for inventing & perfecting entire new fields of science, and to create new substances never seen on Earth (such as Plutonium), solely for the purpose of weaponization against other white people halfway around the world. (Based on what we know today, history indicates the atomic bomb would have been used against Germany if Germany was still in the fight when the bomb was ready for use. Its use against the Japanese twice was primarily a warning to USSR not to directly challenge us or our allies militarily in Europe or in the Far East. Don’t worry, I’m not an apologist, Japan still earned nuking twice.) The facts are all there to prove my assertion. We just don’t spell it out so starkly in the history books today because it horrifies us to see in writing how far we will go to make & win war.
So if mainstream Americans seem not to handle personal street violence well, it’s because the only people the cameras catch crying and weeping before the thug beats them are (1) the ones who have no situational awareness or (2) the ones who don’t appreciate how dangerous strangers can be to each other. The rest either beat feet out the AO beforehand, avoided that AO to begin with, or are carrying firearms in a pack of friends who also are carrying firearms. And, we don’t believe street violence is legitimate. We don’t very much like all of our laws, but we do very much like for them to be obeyed (hence our impatience with, say, armed robbery over a purse or wallet). So it is quite correct to say mainstream Americans have three speeds: Silence; Peaceful Protest; and Total War. We are very Roman in that latter aspect.
I’m not sure where to go from there. The implications stagger me. And I refuse to make it a race thing. If anything, it is fundamentally a “Protect Western Civilization’s culture of reason, science, liberty, justice, and individual rights against barbarians” thing. That is what the study of war and history (real history with facts and first-hand material, not national mythology) has taught me.
All we are saying is give war a chance.
