The mainstreaming of hate

Laboratory of democracy, example #1. And some experiments yield results that are no good.

The current Republican Party has mainstreamed all the tropes of “The Turner Diaries,” the premier piece of race hate fiction in this country. I don’t say this lightly.

But after the last four years of the Obama presidency, it’s quite clear. One cannot ignore the mindless stockpiling of weapons in the absence of even the slightest moves toward gun control legislation, or even enforcement of exisiting rules.

And you would had to have been living in Antarctica to have missed all the common heroes of the right, portrayed as patriots, who generally and loudly profess to stand ready to revolt against the tyrannical government, warn of the alleged creeping menace of shariah law, people who wish and fantasize about the tossing out, reduction and destruction of others who’ve allegedly made the society corrupt — the blacks and browns (in “The Turner Diaries” called “mud people???) the millions of moochers, the poor, government bureaucrats and elites. The list of enemies of the good people of the place we live in is long.

Indeed, the entire survivalist moment, now calling themselves “preppers??? in an unsuccessful attempt to achieve distance from the old designation because of its association with neo-Nazis, is all of the extreme right.

There are no progressives or Democrats in the prepper patriot bunkers. No, the modern patriot drills in camouflage clothes and on gun ranges, honing shooting skills to stop crime, to make society more safe by peace through strength, but later needed when they must defend their families, stuff and bug out homes after society collapses.

Who will they be defending against?

Why, of course, all those on the enemies list: The non-whites who didn’t stockpile food, who lived on the government teat, those on the food stamp rolls (especially the food stamp EBT carders!) the corrupt and lazy progressives, any voters for the other side, a horde predicted to come boiling out of its urban warrens to take what all the good white people have.

The continued reality of this imagery, in political campaigns, as entertainment reality television, in daily news stories, in vanity press prepper civil war fiction (take a look at this mind-numbing collection at Amazon), is as morbidly depressing as a first, and only, reading of “The Turner Diaries.”

Only you can put the book back on the shelf or into the trash.

Pine View Farm has done a lot of documentation of spot news of this and today is no different, that blog pointing to an essay by Mr. Chauncey Devega.

Devega writes:

Americans are unable to come together to solve common issues of public concern because political elites–the Right is preeminently guilty here–have developed a concerted campaign to “otherize??? and marginalize those Americans with whom they disagree.

In all, the Right-wing media apparatus feeds conservatives a daily diet of misinformation, distortions, and hate speech in which their foes are described as insects to be crushed, mentally defective, traitors, and people not fit to live. Such rhetoric is not harmless political theater: seeds do indeed bear fruit.

In September, the conservative website the Free Republic published a hypothetical scenario about how the American economy will collapse and “urban??? riots by black people will need to be put down by white suburban vigilantes.

Devega excerpts from “a hypothetical scenario about how the American economy will collapse and ‘urban’ riots by black people will need to be put down by white suburban vigilantes.”

A piece related to it is a tough read, allegedly inspired as a response to a Small Wars journal article I referenced briefly a couple weeks back:

A new social contract has been created, where bread and circuses buy a measure of peace in our minority-populated urban zones. In the era of ubiquitous big-screen cable television, the internet and smart phones, the circus part of the equation is never in doubt as long as the electricity flows. But the bread is highly problematic. Food must be delivered the old-fashioned way: physically. Any disruption in the normal functioning of the EBT system will lead to food riots with a speed that is astonishing. This will inevitably happen when our unsustainable, debt-fueled binge party finally stops, and the music is over. Now that the delivery of free or heavily subsidized food is perceived by tens of millions of Americans to be a basic human right, the cutoff of “their??? food money will cause an immediate explosion of rage. When the hunger begins to bite, supermarkets, shops and restaurants will be looted, and initially the media will not condemn the looting. Unfortunately, this initial violence will only be the start of a dangerous escalation …

In order to highlight their grievances and escalate their demands for an immediate resumption of government benefits, the [black or brown] MUY flash mobs will next move their activities to the borders of their ethnic enclaves. They will concentrate on major intersections and highway interchanges where [white] non-MUY suburban commuters must make daily passage to and from what forms of employment still exist …

The results of these clashes will frequently resemble the intersection of Florence and Normandie during the Rodney King riots in 1992, where Reginald Denny was pulled out of his truck’s cab and beaten nearly to death with a cinder block.

“Sniper ambushes” will be the tactic developed to counter the non-white mob, writes the “author” at the Western Rifle Shooters Association:

This extremely deadly trick was developed by our war fighters in Iraq and Afghanistan, taking advantage of the significant effective range and firepower of our scoped 5.56mm rifles. Tactics such as the sniper ambush may not be seen early in the civil disorder, but they will surely arise after a steady progression of atrocities attributed to rampaging [blacks] MUYs.

The piece, the author writes, was inspired by something this blog noted a month or so ago — a Small Wars Journal think piece on the US military fighting a domestic insurrection in Darlington, South Carolina.

The Tea Party promptly showed up in force to vent in the comments section:

Those who would actually need to invoke the Insurrecton [sic] Act would already have conducted the affairs of their offices in such a patently un-American, unethical, illegal, unconstitutional and treasonous manner (anybody we know?) that the elected official should uave already been arrested and put on trial. Only if for a protracted period the citizenry feels patriotically obligated to follow the constitution (the part about abolishing a corrupted government) to the point where knowing the US military will become involved, do it anyway.

This is the modern Republican Party, the party of Mitt Romney. If you think there’s little difference between the two current candidates for president or that voting in November is an exercise in holding your nose, you couldn’t be more wrong.

“The right has nothing to sell but hate, but, sadly, hate sells,” concludes Frank at Pine View Farm.

This is not the fringe. It’s solidly entrenched in the mainstream.

See The Pyschopath Vote, preppers and anything under the Ted Nugent and Extremism tabs for the last few years. It will leave your stomach upset.
