THE VIEW FROM HERE - We now know that Dylann Roof was an all-around tragedy.
In the short while that he was at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 17, 2015, he was treated so well by the Bible study group that he started to have doubts about his mission, but his indoctrination was too strong. He then killed nine members of the Bible study group. Now we must deal with Peyton Gendron who killed ten Black people at Tops Supermarket in Buffalo, New York on May 14, 2022.
The behind-the-scenes culprits are the politicos who use mentally vulnerable young men as pawns to gain power. Both CRT and GRT are racist cacadoodoo designed to radicalize the immature. The two ideologies combine to produce murderers who think that they’re heroes.
The Role of Divisive Hate in Western Civilization
Western Civilization has been plagued with divisive hate for millennia. June 21, 2018, CityWatch, The Dangers of Dichotomy: The Saved vs. The Damned, there is no excuse for any educated person not to know their role in almost every war. The danger of this dichotomous thinking is that it allows evil people to gain great power by posturing as saviors.
Group Rights aka Identity Politics Leads to Violence
When a society abandons the protection of individual inalienable rights, the divisive hatred of factions, i.e. Identity Politics, takes over society. In 1776, America broke with millennia of Group Rights by declaring our freedom from Great Britain which was based on Group Rights. Instead, we designed our society to “promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty” Const. Preamble The Federalist Papers (which should never ever be confused with the Federal Society) warned in great detail about the destructive nature of factions, i.e. groups which seek to take control of the government to benefit their faction over everyone else.
Politicos Love Identity Politics
Politicos on the Right and on the Left love the group rights approach to government. It is easy to gain votes and power by the Divide and Conquer approach of Identity Politics. The formula is simple: Tell a group that it is special but under attack by Them and you will be the protector. The oldest form of Identity Politics in America is Christian White Supremacy. One cannot write American History without discussing the battle which various subgroups of “white people” fought against Christian White Supremacy. It’s why Rhode Island was founded. Overall, Christian White Supremacy was defeated. The Declaration of Independence declared that all men have individual, inalienable rights including Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Property was not an enumerated inalienable right since Jefferson did not want anyone to say that since Blacks were legally classified as Property, Whites had an inalienable right to own them. (It should be noted that the Declaration and the US Constitution were both written and adopted by the most non-diverse group of people.) The US Constitution used the inclusive word “Persons” which is why it does not have the words “women” or “men.” Its use of “three-fifths of all other Persons” reiterated that slaves were legally Persons and not property.
Individual Inalienable Rights Have Been Cast Aside
Brown v. Board of Education, 347 U.S. 483 (1954), officially abandoned the Constitution and adopted Group Rights. Justice Anthony Kennedy tried to put us back on the correct track of inalienable rights in Lawrence vs. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003) where the basis of Gay Rights was Liberty, but the group rights advocates of the Left and the Right would have nothing to do with inalienable rights. Except for a few lone voices, America has become polarized between two racist Identity Rights: white supremacy and minority supremacy. The Dems have gone so hog wild on group rights that it even calls its racist approach “Identity Politics,” which is akin to declaring “We are racists.”
The Two Political Advantages of Identity Politics
(1) When a population polarizes into two groups, both sides shun facts and logic. The only thing which matters is what the leaders say. Each side claims that it is 100% correct and the other is 100% false and should be banished. Compromise becomes a dirty word as it is to join with the devil.
(2) Leaders need produce no benefits. Since the entire movement devolves into fear and loathing of the other, the politicos need provide nothing tangible for their group. In fact, in Los Angeles, Dems are in the forefront of destroying minority neighborhoods, but Blacks and Mexicans still vote Dem.
Ever since Gov. Pete Wilson placed the racist imprimatur on the GOP with Prop 187, their “minorities not welcome sign” has been clear. Then, the GOP support for the vile anti-gay Prop 8 proved that it stood for group rights of Christian Fundamentalists in denial of Gays’ right of Liberty.
CRT and GRT Are Both Racist Tools of Hate
Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Great Replacement Theory (GRT) are both racist screeds designed to gain political power. The mutual support which CRT and GRT provide each other has been hidden from the public. If the politicos wanted to do stop the internecine hate, the Dems would debunk the racist CRT and the GOP would debunk the racist GRT. Neither will do that. Instead, they are ginning up the hate because hate is the best fund-raising tool that people like Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump have.
CRT: Democrat Politicos like Nancy Pelosi use Critical Race Theory to pose an existential threat to Whites. Its premise is simple: when minorities become the majority of the voters, they will vote away whites and white culture (whatever that is). Although the date for the minorities to become the majority is 2044, wokers act as if the minorities already rule.
While anti-Black racism exists, it is not the premier story of America. Blacks are only 12.4% of Americans. Less than 9% in Los Angeles. The other 87.6% of Americans have their own histories and backgrounds and for a majority of them, slavery of Blacks is not part of it. In fact, America’s core problem is not racism, but predation. The underlying problem which affects each individual is the predatory abuse at all levels of American society. If police were not trained to be predators, no cop who disliked Blacks would think of harming a Black person. Racism becomes a factor only when predatory abuse is enshrined as socially acceptable.
The call for slavery reparations is not designed to benefit Blacks but rather to enhance the power of politicos like Nancy Pelosi by ginning up the group rights war between Blacks and Whites. Peyton Gendron wrote, “Here’s your slavery reparations” on his rifle. The Alt Rt has heard Pelosi.
Great Replacement Theory is Believable Bunk
GRT’s format is the same as CRT’s format: I am oppressed, and I need to exterminate Them! Law enforcement and “defense agencies” like the ADL, the AJC, and The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in addition to the Department of Justice warned Congress that far right extremists were small in numbers but highly violent.
Charles Manson reflected the extreme danger of this type of thinking with his preaching on Helter Skelter. Manson thought the Beatles were speaking to him through their White Album and its lyrics in Helter Skelter were calling for a race war between Whites and Blacks where Manson would prevail as the leader of the victorious Whites. Aug 8, 2019 HISTORY, How Charles Manson Took Sick Inspiration from the Beatles' 'Helter Skelter' by Lesley Kennedy
Law enforcement’s advice to politicians: “Do not yank their chains. They crave publicity; so give them none.” Rather than remain silent about violent White Supremacy, Pelosi made it the focal point of her Group Rights Identity Politics. Over the next years, Dems were hearing more about White Fragility, White Entitlement, The 1619 Project and the need for slavery reparations. Her unrelenting theme has been the evils of racist white culture. Her political strategy was simple: gather as many “minority groups” as possible under her Identity Politics banner and forever beat the war drums against Whites. Despite calls for Pelosi to abandon her Identity Politics, it was making her money and gaining her political power.

While White Supremacy predates Nancy Pelosi, the Great Replacement Theory did not jump to prominence until the 2011 publication of Le Grand Remplacement by French writer Renaud Camus. In the American version, which infested the mind of Peyton Gendron, under the direction of Jews, Blacks and immigrants would supplant Whites in order to exterminate white culture.
The nation was founded on individual inalienable rights, but it is being torn apart by the group rights of Identity Politics. The more the Dems gin up their anti-white racism, the stronger the Alt Right becomes in its anti-minority racism.
