In a heated dialogue on Facebook yesterday, Joshua Blakeney and I argued for some time with a belligerent, irrational, platitude-wielding communist.
Despite the individual in question mostly just spewing traditional Marxist venom at us—labeling us “Nazis,” “fascists,” “reactionaries” and other dirty words—some real insight about the inadequacy of Marxist ideology can be gleaned from the faulty thinking displayed by this misguided person.
The first false assertion of this Marxist and all those who espouse Marxist ideology (all Marxists make the same or similar claims because they are reading from a script provided to them by their gurus and have no original thoughts or analysis), is that the present world order is spearheaded by “WASPs,” i.e., rich white capitalists who adhere to a “white supremacist” ideology and seek to hold down and exploit those not part of the white in-group.
This all-pervasive “white supremacist” bogeyman lies at the core of Marxist discourse. In the Marxist worldview, all the ills of the world can be attributed to the “white supremacist capitalist class.”
This claim is not only obviously racist, but it is inaccurate.
If, as Marxists claim, “white supremacists” are at the helm of the global power structure today, then how do we explain the present policy of mass non-white immigration into all Western countries? Surely, if white racists controlled the immigration policy this wouldn’t be happening. How do we explain why most Western governments promote multiculturalism as a state ideology? How do we explain the “civil rights” movement in the United States which supposedly lifted blacks out of the shackles of oppression and discrimination in that country? How do we explain why the US government and other Western governments — again, supposedly dominated by “white racist capitalists” — have enacted massive social equalization programs (affirmative action, minority scholarship programs, etc.) that are designed to give minorities living in European-majority countries unfair advantages so as to artificially “equalize” society. If white racists hold the reins of power than why was the apartheid regime in South Africa overthrown with the consent and assistance of many Western governments? Why are scientists such as Philippe Rushton who have studied and published works on race and IQ hounded and harried and made into lepers in the academic community? Surely if white supremacists ran the show, academics such as Rushton would be celebrated and not traduced. The topic of race is a veritable taboo in Western societies, and even broaching the issue will result in one being branded a “racist” and even a “hate criminal.”
This false Marxist premise of white supremacist domination cannot stand up to scrutiny. The falsity of this Marxist meme is certainly a deliberate attempt to obfuscate the true nature of power today.
It is certainly true that whites were the dominant group in the world in the past three or four centuries, but it is not the case today and hasn’t been that way for many decades. The old WASP elite has been essentially dethroned and replaced by a hostile Jewish elite. This takeover process probably began at the beginning of the 20th century, and has been solidifying over the past 40 or so years. This new Jewish ruling class, as Joshua Blakeney has noted, cynically used the human rights struggles of blacks, Amerindians, and other minorities to discredit white gentiles who Jews sought to supplant as a competitor group. (See The Culture of Critique by Kevin MacDonald) It is this new Jewish faction that is highly dominant today in the global economy and by extension global politics.
This is a fact that Marxists seek to suppress. Marxists are essentially fighting a long-vanquished bogeyman, and therefore cannot come to terms with the reality of Jewish power.
But why do they do this?
To understand this it must be said that Marxism was, at its core, a Jewish strategy of self-empowerment. It was created and fostered by Jewish ideologues as a mechanism of unseating Gentile rulers and overturning Gentile political systems. Communism has operated as little more than a vehicle for Jewish power, and that is its function. Communism stems from the Jewish totalitarian tradition, which is why so many of its ideological forebearers were Jews with rabbinical roots (i.e., Moses Hess, Karl Marx, Rosa Luxenbourg, Leon Trotsky (Bronstein), Ana Pauker (Rabinsohn), etc.)
Communism in practice was the act of enslaving Gentiles under a tyrannical Jewish dictatorship. It was in a sense a historical re-creation of the Jewish ghetto (shtetl) where authoritarian rabbis had complete control over all aspects of Jewish life. Instead of rabbis controlling Jewish life, communist states enforced their rigid doctrines on the Gentile masses. Those who refused to obey the self-appointed overseers of society were summarily shot or exiled to concentration camps. This was especially true in the Soviet Union and communist Eastern Europe where “anti-Semitism” was decreed a crime punishable by death or imprisonment.
