In the video, Lena Dunham asks her father "How are you feeling about the extinction of white men?" Her father answers "Well, straight white men are a big problem, that's for sure. I actually feel pretty good about it. Straight white guys have been screwing things up for long enough." Dunham titled the tweet "It's not the end of men, it's the evolution of men into better men" which suggests that she thinks men will improve if there are no white men.
Here's the video:

I listen to this and am reminded of how moderns have to find what Zippy Catholic terms an "oppressor-untermensch," i.e. a category of persons who can be blamed for the failure of modernity to usher in humanity's (supposed) final phase of equal freedom. Once moderns tag you as the oppressor-untermensch you are in trouble, as any means will be employed to get you out of the way.
It's all based on a series of assumptions. First, that the aim of existence, and the end point of human history, is an equal freedom to be autonomous, self-determining individuals. Second, that the reason this doesn't exist is because one group of people (the oppressor-untermensch) has decided to divert human progress by attempting to oppress and exploit others to their own benefit.
The point for us is not to argue within the framework of this kind of politics, but to decisively reject the framework outright.
P.S. Life is strange. I just did an internet search on Lena Dunham's father. Turns out he's an artist. I don't know how to put this, but his paintings are focused on female orifices. Words fail me. He is a gone-bad-in-the-spirit WASP American.
Yes, "extinction of white men" is what it is all about. The important thing to realize is that they (feminist, progressives, etc) really mean what they say in this regard. I certainly failed to understand this for a long time.ReplyDelete
mark, lena is jewish. this is a peculiar jewish tactic: behave in a highly antagonistic way towards whites while presenting as white. on the surface it comes across as self deprecating and ironic, veiling jewish hostility to white ChristianityReplyDelete
it should be no surprise that many involved in Americas new 'whiteness studies' programs are jewish. any serious conservative movement must engage with the issue of Jewish hostility toward the integrity and survival of European cultures
We can acknowledge that there are Jewish individuals and organisations which are hostile to the existence of white gentile society (though there are some honourable exceptions as well).Delete
However, I don't think this is a critical aspect of the politics we need to promote. My father is a Catholic who, personality-wise, is also conservative. Politically, however, he will never do anything to uphold his tradition, or to secure a future for his own children, because he has taken on the values and world view of right-liberalism. That is the mental block which prevents him from standing up for his own civilisation. Similarly, I have two siblings, both academics, who are left-liberal in their world view and who for this reason will also never think of supporting their own tradition.
Telling my family members that many Jews are against white gentile society won't have any effect on them, because they themselves, philosophically, don't see any reason to defend their own society either.
What we need to do is create a non-liberal alternative for our own intelligentsia. And part of this is making a sophisticated critique of the existing liberal orthodoxy (as well as promoting an alternative).
To me, the focus of white nationalism on the Jewish question has mostly been a negative; I've noticed signs lately that some white nationalists are starting to move beyond this and to critique those liberal blocks in the minds of gentile whites and I see this as an encouraging development.
I do not believe that a non-liberal alternative can emerge as long as the present media groups retain their dominance. There is only one serious competitor that emerged in the last 20 years, that of Qatar's Al Jazeera. But they didn't find success in the US, even though they paid off Al Gore to the tune of 100 million USD.Delete
Somewhat successful has been the backlash to Black Lives Mater protests during NFL games. Ratings have dropped tremendously. The masses of white working men cannot be awakened to a different way of thinking until the opiate of pro-sports is gone. (US D1 Football and Basketball is for all intents and purposes professional)
I hold little sympathy for the WN position, but any challenge to liberalism is going to make most serious Jews upset. They have an out of proportion share of the US's Federal Reserve and Supreme Court seats. There isn't a single Protestant on the Supreme Court, but the Justice pending nomination would be the fourth Jew.
Even the honest Marxists would have to have a problem with that, surely Obama could have selected Sri Srinivasan instead.
Envy, not equality, it the basis of liberalism, and you can see its destructive effects here.ReplyDelete
ITs wants White Genocide, unapologetic and smugly. Envy is one of the 7 deadly sins for a reason.
A man abler than his brothers insults them by implication. He must not aspire to any virtue which cannot be shared'
Precisely, they envy what we have created. Of course, now they want it all for themselves, but without white men they won't be able to maintain it. Standards are already falling; expensive phones spontaneously combusting, Mars landing probes crashing, to mention just a spectacular two. Could we land men on the Moon today?Delete
If I live long enough, it will be schadenfreude-laden delight to see how she and her father co-exist (they think) with the Muslims.ReplyDelete
This, unfortunately, would be pyrrhic.Delete
Her father is right, but not in the way he thinks. Straight white men have been responsible for many disasters, simply because they have chosen to surrender to clowns like him rather than fighting to preserve civilisation. If straight white men really had behaved like the evil patriarchal oppressors of feminist mythology we would not be in the mess we're in now.ReplyDelete
So he'll be excited when his chubby little girl gets knocked up by a black man? Does she refuse to date white guys, or are white guys refusing to date her?ReplyDelete
No one will date her. She is a wreck of a human being.Delete
Somehow she has a rock star boyfriend.Delete
Her odiousness and her dreadful show really make me depressed about the state of our culture & what some consider art
Her is father is not a WASP
