The Purge

Post-Charlottesville, the newest and most active front of Political Correctness – Corporate America – is accelerating the Purge. In just the past few days:

NR: “Mothball the Confederate Monuments”

National Review’s Editor in Chief, Rich Lowry, calls for taking down all Confederate memorials (“Mothball the Confederate Monuments”):

The monuments should go. Some of them simply should be trashed; others transmitted to museums, battlefields, and cemeteries. The heroism and losses of Confederate soldiers should be commemorated, but not in everyday public spaces where the monuments are flashpoints in poisonous racial contention, with white nationalists often mustering in their defense.

Some discrimination is in order. There’s no reason to honor Jefferson Davis, the blessedly incompetent president of the Confederacy. New Orleans just sent a statue of him to storage — good riddance. Amazingly enough, Baltimore has a statue of Chief Justice Roger Taney, the author of the monstrous Dred Scott decision, which helped precipitate the war. A city commission has, rightly, recommended its destruction.

NR is the mainstream ‘voice of conservatism’.

Amazing.

New Yorker: “Is America Headed for a New Kind of Civil War?”

A writer in The New Yorker asks “Is America Headed for a New Kind of Civil War?”:

America’s stability is increasingly an undercurrent in political discourse. Earlier this year, I began a conversation with Keith Mines about America’s turmoil. Mines has spent his career—in the U.S. Army Special Forces, the United Nations, and now the State Department—navigating civil wars in other countries, including Afghanistan, Colombia, El Salvador, Iraq, Somalia, and Sudan…

In March, Mines was one of several national-security experts whom Foreign Policy asked to evaluate the risks of a second civil war—with percentages. Mines concluded that the United States faces a sixty-per-cent chance of civil war over the next ten to fifteen years. Other experts’ predictions ranged from five per cent to ninety-five per cent. The sobering consensus was thirty-five per cent. And that was five months before Charlottesville.

Charlottesville Footnote

James Dunphy notes:

A 20 year old named James Alex Fields, Jr. rammed his Dodge Challenger into a group of people during the Charlottesville March this past Saturday, August 12, 2017, killing one. The interesting thing is that if he had been a Muslim doing it for the sake of jihad, the media and academia would in response be promoting a narrative that we should not allow this attack to be used to malign Muslims across the nation because most Muslims, according to them, are law-abiding people of good will.

Bill the Butcher

We need Bill the Butcher to speak to the Cucks regarding their virtue-signaling of displeasure with Trump’s Charlottesville response:

“I know your works. You are neither cold nor hot. So because you are lukewarm, I will spew you out of my mouth. You can build your filthy world without me. I took the father. Now I’ll take the son. You tell young Vallon I’m gonna paint Paradise Square with his blood. Two coats. I’ll festoon my bedchamber with his guts. As for you, Mr. Tammany-f*cking-Hall, you come down to the Points again, and you’ll be dispatched by my own hand. Get back to your celebration and let me eat in peace.”

Can Europe Be Saved?

In Commentary, Sohrab Ahmari reviews The Strange Death of Europe by Douglas Murray:

The book deals mainly with Western Europe’s disastrous experiment in admitting huge numbers of Muslim immigrants without bothering to assimilate them. These immigrants now inhabit parallel communities on the outskirts of most major cities. They reject mainstream values and not infrequently go boom. Murray’s account ranges from the postwar guest-worker programs to the 2015 crisis that brought more than a million people from the Middle East and Africa.

This is dark-night-of-the-soul stuff. The author, a director at London’s Henry Jackson Society (where I was briefly a nonresident fellow), has for more than a decade been among Europe’s more pessimistic voices on immigration. My classically liberal instincts primed me to oppose him at every turn. Time and again, I found myself conceding that, indeed, he has a point. This is in large part because I have been living in and reporting on Europe for nearly four years. Events of the period have vindicated Murray’s bleak vision and confounded his critics…

Emboldened

A newly-emboldened, rainbow coalition of SJWs toppled a Confederate statue in Durham, NC today, while chanting “You can’t stop the Revolution!”

UPDATE: This is astonishing:

When protesters, angry over the deadly incidents in Virginia this weekend, decided to take down a nearly century-old statue of a Confederate soldier in North Carolina on Monday, law enforcement stood back and watched.

At no time did officers with the Durham Police Department or deputies with the Durham County Sheriff’s Office intervene as activists brought a ladder up to the statue and used a rope to pull it down, according to multiple media reports.

No one was arrested.

Why is it that whenever Antifa leftists are in the vicinity, law enforcement is given stand-down orders?

UPDATE II: The fat black lesbian SJW who climbed the Confederate Soldiers Monument in Durham NC has been arrested. She/It/Ze is 22 year old Takiya Fatima Thompson:

“I’m tired of white supremacy keeping its foot on my neck and the necks of people who look like me,” Thompson said at a news conference. “That statue glorifies the conditions that oppressed people live in, and it had to go.”

Thompson, a student at historically black North Carolina Central University, faces vandalism misdemeanor and felony charges, including for property damage and participation in a riot, according to the Durham County Sheriff’s Office.

The Liberal Crackup

In the WSJ, Mark Lilla (himself a liberal) writes of “The Liberal Crackup”:

For those students who will soon become liberal and progressive elites, the line between self-discovery and political action has become blurred. Their political commitments are genuine but are circumscribed by the confines of their self-definitions. Issues that penetrate those confines take on looming importance, and since politics for them is personal, their positions tend to be absolutist and nonnegotiable. Those issues that don’t touch on their identities or affect people like themselves are hardly perceived. And classic liberal ideas like citizenship, solidarity and the common good have little meaning for them.

As a teacher, I am increasingly struck by a difference between my conservative and progressive students. Contrary to the stereotype, the conservatives are far more likely to connect their engagements to a set of political ideas and principles. Young people on the left are much more inclined to say that they are engaged in politics as an X, concerned about other Xs and those issues touching on X-ness. And they are less and less comfortable with debate.

Over the past decade a new, and very revealing, locution has drifted from our universities into the media mainstream: Speaking as an X…This is not an anodyne phrase. It sets up a wall against any questions that come from a non-X perspective. Classroom conversations that once might have begun, I think A, and here is my argument, now take the form, Speaking as an X, I am offended that you claim B. What replaces argument, then, are taboos against unfamiliar ideas and contrary opinions.

NYT: “Far-Right Groups Surge Into National View in Charlottesville”

The NYT has a piece titled “Far-Right Groups Surge Into National View in Charlottesville” by Richard Fausset and Alan Feuer (with Sheryl Gay Stolberg, Hawes Spencer and Alan Blinder contributing reporting):

Will the overt displays of racism return the extreme right-wing to the margins of politics, or will they serve to normalize the movement, allowing it to weave itself deeper into the national conversation?

There’s the obligatory photo of a 1488-er doing the Roman salute. Then, there’s a steady stream of the usual:

Some left-leaning Charlottesville organizers like Laura Goldblatt, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Virginia, said that the full airing of such ideas would eventually lead more Americans to reject them…

But Ms. Goldblatt, while not addressing those leftists who resorted to violence, said that some kind of response in the street was necessary. History, she said, has shown that “ignoring white supremacy, in terms of shutting your doors and not coming out to confront them, has been a really dangerous strategy.”

Yes, the timeworn “history has shown” excuse: an all purpose phrase (all the more ‘powerful’ when uttered by a leftwing Jew) that serves to shut down free speech as well as excuse leftwing-intitiated violence against a peaceful and lawful white identitarian gathering. (BTW, that last paragraph is essentially the full extent of the piece’s analysis of Antifa-initiated violence.)

And then there’s Heidi from the $PLC:

Heidi Beirich

Heidi Beirich, who runs the intelligence project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors far-right groups, was among those who watched with alarm as the online excitement over the gathering grew. “It was astounding to see it go from 100 people saying they were going to go, to 300, to 500, to 700, to raising money on online platforms to facilitate that,” she said.

Heidi was so anxious about it, she ate a dozen sweet babkas to calm herself down.

And let’s toss in the equally alarmist Larry Rosenthal (whom I once watched on C-SPAN deliver a vile characterization of Trump voters):

Lawrence Rosenthal, the executive director of the Berkeley Center for Right-Wing Studies at the University of California, said that Mr. Spencer appeared to welcome this level of violent, street-level politics.

I’m sure Berkeley is in the planning stages for a ‘Berkeley Center for Left-Wing Studies’, to be helmed by conservative WASPS.

He noted an audio recording Mr. Spencer made after similar skirmishes in April in Berkeley. Mr. Spencer called them a “pitched battle” between two polarized, political “vanguards” that reminded him of political upheavals, presumably in Germany, that took place in the 1920s and 1930s.

“This is a very different dynamic than I’m used to,” Mr. Spencer said. “I thought that political violence had just become impossible, that we’d never see it again.”

It’s always 1933 with these people.
