The Bible speaks of ETHNIC conflict as one of the most pointed and distressing signs of those events leading up to the "Beginning of Sorrows" (ie., the first half of the Tribulation and the appearance of the Antichrist as a messianic savior):
It is PRECISELY this alarming sign of the "end of days" that is making itself felt now in the battle over so-called "illegal immigration" - specifically the unrelenting flow of undocumented children (known derisively as "little brown people") across our southern border. Naturally enough, most who oppose this flood of children into the country would vehemently deny that racism has anything to do with their opposition to this torrent of "illegal aliens" – but such feelings are there and easily discernable to anyone who wants to look.
THE VANDALS ARE COMING!
The fact is, increasing numbers of working-class whites have been purposefully led to believe by conservative "talk radio" that if they don't do something quickly, they are going to be engulfed numerically by Latinos from Mexico and Central America, and Haitians and other blacks from the Caribbean - all of them breathing slaughter and hatred against whites as the come, intent on wresting control of the United States from them. After all, what are whites to think when a spokesman for Khalid Muhammed introduces him (ie., Khalid) several years ago at the Black Holocaust Nationhood Conference in Washington D.C. with the following words? -
And as if to add an exclamation mark to the above statement, members of the black community raised a memorial to a black man - Lawrence Campbell - who murdered a white policeman at a Walgreen's pharmacy in New Jersey a few days ago, (see below) with the words,
And how does one explain away to working-class whites the increasingly virulent "race politics" of such Latino groups as La Raza, La Familia, etc. in Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, etc? For example, take what happened in San Jose a few years ago when "flyers" appeared out of "nowhere" that flooded the entire "south bay area" declaring California, Arizona, New Mexico, etc. part of Mexico: in addition to a lot of hate-filled rhetoric directed against "white Anglos," the "flyers" announced "null and void" the Treaty of Guadeloupe-Hidalgo and urged all people of Mexican descent to rise up and take California back.
Whites who are living in "safe areas" may laugh at this danger and call such thinking the insane results of an out-of-control paranoia; but you won't find many whites - "moderates" included - in San Diego, Los Angeles, Brownsville, San Antonio, Miami and south Dade county who are laughing any more.
To get an idea of the hate all this is engendering in white, working-class neighborhoods, one has only to listen to their music. Take Guns N' Roses, for instance; it is a white rock band that appeals to "underclass" whites - though there is a great deal of evidence which seems to suggest that its appeal is far broader than that, after all, it isn't underclass whites who can afford the price for a single ticket to a Guns N' Roses concert. Its breakthrough record was a hate song called "One in a Million," which came out in 1989 and targeted blacks, gays, and immigrants with lyrics which declared:
THE "BLACK AND
THE "BLACK AND LATINO WOLF PACKS"
According to many pundits of conservative "talk radio," what these groups seem to be saying to whites is,
Mara Salvatrucha (commonly abbreviated as MS, Mara, and MS-13) is a transnational criminal gang that is ethnically composed of Central Americans and active in urban and suburban areas. They are notorious for their use of violence and a subcultural moral code that predominantly consists of merciless revenge and cruel retributions.
This threat is made all the more genuine by the growing presence of what really are extremely dangerous Latino gangs in many of the country's urban areas like MS-13.
Whites are frightened! - especially working-class whites; "moderate" whites who live in safe neighborhoods can afford to ignore this kind of rhetoric, but working-class whites can't.
They see these gangs everyday, and sense in them the deadly malice of a wolf pack which is seeking to devour them simply because they are white.
While they won't admit it out loud, many working-class whites are beginning to see both the black and Latino communities as nothing more than a vicious and rancorous cabal of "do nothings" that slinks about in the inner cities and older suburbs, stalking hard working whites and devouring them. They see these communities as riffraff. A mob! A rabble! They are the losers, the failures, the ner-do-wells, the excuse givers; the welfare recipients that are "... too lazy to get off their fat rumps and get a job;" the ones who, as Richard Herrnstein and Charles Murray imply in the Bell Curve, "make children" and little else.
They are the junkies, the dope dealers, the "denizens of darkness" which live off the hard work of whites. They've taken over the old public parks and playgrounds; they control the public schools; they prowl the inner cities and increasingly the older suburbs. These are the rapists, the muggers, the prostitutes that would just as easily kill whites as look at them. They are the Uzi-toting Mexican and Colombian gang enforcers; the cracked-crazed moms of the inner city who abandon their children.
In their 1994 book, The Bell Curve, Murray and Herrnstein pictured these communities as places where basic human values - the values of work (welfare is so widespread in these areas that there is no longer any stigma in receiving it, it has become a way of life), love, personal growth - have broken down.
NOTE: We urge you to see our article, "THE UTILITY OF POLICE BRUTALITY IN THE ELITE'S WAR AGAINST THE POOR" for a glimpse of the "other side of the coin" – that is to say, how the elites have purposefully demonized blacks and Latinos and caged them up like animals in ghettos throughout the country.
Commenting on the impact of The Bell Curve, Aaron Swartz has written:
"If you have any doubt about the power of the [conservative] think tanks [to generate hatred against America's minority communities], look no further than the story of The Bell Curve. The book claimed that IQ tests revealed black people to be genetically less intelligent than whites, thus explaining their low place in society … [We urge you to take the time to read our article, "RACISM AND RIGHT-WING CHRISTIANITY" for a thorough refutation of the racism and false science behind the Bell Curve.]
"And the media lapped it up. In what Eric Alterman has termed "a kind of Rorschach test for pundits," every major media outlet reviewed the book without questioning the accuracy of its contents. Instead, they merely quibbled about its proposed recommendations that the dumb blacks, with their dangerously high reproductive rates, might have to be kept in "a high-tech and more lavish version of an Indian reservation" without such luxuries as "individualism, equal rights before the law," and so on. Reviewers proposed more moderate solutions, like just taking away their welfare checks.
"The amount of coverage alone was incredible. The book received cover stories in Newsweek ("the science behind [it] is overwhelmingly mainstream"), The New Republic (which dedicated an entire issue to discussion of the book), and The New York Times Book Review (which suggested critics disliked its "appeal to sweet reason" and are "inclined to hang the defendants without a trial"). Detailed articles appeared in TIME, The New York Times ("makes a strong case"), The New York Times Magazine, Forbes (praising the book's "Jeffersonian vision"), the Wall Street Journal, and the National Review. It received a respectful airing on such shows as ABC's Nightline, PBS's MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, the McLaughlin Group, Think Tank (which dedicated a special two-part series to the book), ABC's PrimeTime Live, and NPR's All Things Considered. With fifteen weeks on the bestseller list, it ended up selling over 300,000 copies in hardcover.
This wasn't just a media debate about the existence of global warming or the merits of internment, this was a full-on media endorsement of racism, which the American Heritage Dictionary defines as -
'The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others'."
And just how deeply this kind of thinking has seeped into the mindset of not just "working-class whites," but also into the thinking of leading academicians was made apparent recently in an article by Steve Rendal entitled, "Genetic Determinism: Highly Placed Mainstream Media Racists." The article was a critique of Nicholas Wade's new book, A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History. Wade was a leading New York Times science writer for three decades. THINK ABOUT THAT: THE LEADING SCIENCE WRITER FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES.
According to Rendal, the book is a full-throated defense of "scientific racism." Wade's views raise questions about the REAL thinking of those who control the New York Times – after all, one cannot believe that those who control the Times were not aware of his thinking – NOT AFTER THIRTY YEARS AT THE TIMES.
Commenting of the failure of the Times to reign in Wade's "scientific racism," Rendal writes:
"There are many reasons media fail to adequately challenge racism, particularly racism in high places. But one rarely discussed reason is that some highly placed corporate media figures are open to racism. I documented this a while back in Extra!, after New York Times columnists David Brooks and John Tierney approvingly cited the work of Steve Sailer, a central figure in the promotion of racist and anti-immigrant theories. THE NEW YORK TIMES AGAIN."
For his part, Brooks praised a Sailer article in the American Conservative promoting a movement that saw white people, as Brooks would have it, flouting Western trends toward declining birth rates by having lots of children and leaving behind the "disorder, vulgarity and danger" of cities to move to "clean, orderly" suburban and exurban settings where they can "protect their children from bad influences." Sailer describes the undesirable urban traits he says white people are trying to escape:
The Times wasn't the only "liberal" outlet to praise the theories of genetic determinism; the allegedly liberal New Republic verily gushed over the book, with editor Andrew Sullivan dedicating an entire issue of the magazine to it, and defending its key premise. Wrote Sullivan:
"The notion that there might be resilient ethnic differences in intelligence is not, we believe, an inherently racist belief."
Wade argues that race is not, as many experts say, little more than a social construct, but rather centrally important, something like destiny.
In February 1899, British novelist and poet Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem entitled "The White Man's Burden: The United States and The Philippine Islands." In this poem, Kipling urged the U.S. to take up the "burden" of empire. Theodore Roosevelt, soon to become vice-president and then president, copied the poem and sent it to his friend, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, commenting that it made good sense.
The poem exhorts the reader to take up the white man's burden by sending the best of their country to dark, uncivilized places of the earth.. The poem speaks of superior Europeans going into a country of "sullen" brutes and imposing their civilizing behaviors and institutions. The racism is quite manifest. The native, "captive peoples" are "sullen peoples, / Half-devil and half-child." The poem reeks of a eugenics mindset.
Eugenics, meaning "well born," was introduced to the world in the 1880s by Sir Francis Galton, a cousin of Charles Darwin. Galton pioneered the use of pedigrees, twin studies, and statistical correlation for the purpose of using that knowledge to improve "the breed of man." In the end, what this came to mean was limiting the ability of non-white communities to "breed" and restricting their access to education, jobs, etc. IT FORMED THE BASIC MINDSET OF HITLER'S THIRD REICH. [Again, we urge you to see our article, "Racism and Right-Wing Christianity."]
So-called genetically inferior brown people
Like a nightmare that won't go away, like a cancer that goes into remission - feigning a cure - only to reappear again in some other part of the body in a more virulent form, racism is resurfacing again, this time in the United States and under the guise of "securing our borders" from the influx of "illegal aliens" – ie., "little brown people" who are genetically inferior to the "whites" of Northern America.
Liberals, of course, don't believe that this can happen; they think that the "race issue" has already been decided. And that's the problem with "lefties:" they seem unable to fathom the fact that "progress" in these matters is not always on their side. They are bedeviled by the notion that the history of man leads ever upward (ie., towards a multicultural world in which matters like race, ethnicity, "civilization consciousness," etc. don't matter) - with them in the lead showing the way.
To liberals, the issue of race was fought and won in the civil rights struggles of the last thirty years; that's settled history now. There's no going back to revisit these issues. Ground once taken and occupied by "liberals" can never be retaken and reoccupied by "conservatives" (by which they mean, "racists"). Lefties believe that to think otherwise is not only wrong, but it's "unfair." Such is the idiocy of the left.
The fact is, racism is surfacing again, and if we are not very careful as Christians, we are in great peril of being swept up in its currents. The great mistake that many of us are in danger of making is to overestimate our ability to avoid being swept away by these currents, and to underestimate how swiftly those currents are really flowing. To step into these currents - even for the best of reasons - is to risk being swept up into the frenzied tide of racism ourselves.
The great mistake that many of us are in danger of making is to overestimate our ability to avoid being swept away by these currents, and to underestimate how swiftly those currents are really flowing. To step into these currents - even for the best of reasons - is to risk being politicized ourselves and being, as a result, caught up in them.
The only way we can avoid being caught up in these currents is to begin walking in the light of God's Word, specifically that Christ's Kingdom has NOTHING to do with this world ["... My kingdom is not of this world ..." (John 18:36)] - and that out political involvement in it will not make it a nicer place in which to live; all it will likely accomplish is to pollute us. Christ's Kingdom is a heavenly kingdom whose builder and maker is God (Heb. 11:10) - and it is only there that the reality of Galatians 3:28 can be truly lived out; it's only there where there is -
"... neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28)
In this world, such distinctions still remain, and there is nothing we can do to alter that fact. Our job while we remain here on earth (and it is, in the final analysis, a pretty short stay) is not to reform the earth (it is fit now only for judgment), but to get as many people out of it as we can. As the words of that old Baptist hymn of long ago declare, our home now is with Christ in the heavens:
"This world is not our home, we're just a passing through, Our treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue, The angels beckon us from heaven's open door, And we can't feel at home in this world anymore.
"Oh Lord you know, we have no friend like you, If heaven's not our home, then, Lord, what will we do, The angels beckon us from heaven's open door, And we can't feel at home in this world anymore."
Like the aliens crossing our southern border, we too are aliens in this world.
The Bible says that we are "partakers of a heavenly calling" (Heb. 3:1) having nothing to do with the affairs of this earth. Paul declares that all those who wish to serve God must consider the world as alien territory, and they themselves as only "sojourners" in it - people who are merely transiting through it on their way to another land - a heavenly country whose "builder and maker is God" (Heb. 11:10); and that while here on earth, there is a necessity laid upon them to continually remind themselves of their "alien status" by -
"... confessing (both in word and in the way they live) that they are strangers (foreigners) and pilgrims (travelers, wanderers, wayfarers) on the earth ..." (Heb. 11:13)
More next time.
God bless you all,
Have the courage of Sophie Scholl: Pass out our flyer, leave it in libraries, affix it to trees and posts, put it on the windshields of cars, especially those in church parking lots. Sophie Scholl
At the age of 21 Sophie was executed by guillotine after being convicted of high treason. Her crime was publishing some anti-war leaflets that were printed by the White Rose (a non-violent resistance group that encouraged people to passively resist the Nazis) in 1943 at Munich University. Eventually a copy of the leaflet made it out of Germany and millions of copies were made and then dropped by plane over parts of Germany. Its was re-entitled The Manifesto of Munich Students.
Do you possess the courage that Sophie possessed? ARE YOU WILLING TO DOWN LOAD OUR FLYER AND PASS IT OUT? [Please see our article, "We Are Your Conscience: The White Rose Society."]
