Substitutes for natural affinities

The Super Bowl is coming up, and in recent years I can’t help reflecting on how people’s natural affinities and impulses are being re-directed into sports. Now, I don’t want to ruffle anyone’s feathers; if people enjoy football, far be it from me to condemn it. In itself, watching sports is an innocuous way to spend one’s time.

But I’ve noticed over the course of my lifetime that sports fans have become a little more emotionally invested in their favorite sports, and their ‘home teams’, than used to be the case. Think of the phenomenon of people painting their faces and even their bodies in garish team colors to show their love for the team. The paint reminds me of the movie ‘Braveheart’, with its somewhat anachronistic images of Scotsmen painted (in the fashion of the Picts, who were many centuries earlier) to go into battle against the Sassenachs. Others may think of the old Western movies, with the Indians adorned with ”war paint” as they rode out to battle the White Eyes, or maybe their neighboring Indian tribal enemies.

There could be many ways of displaying ‘team colors’, as in the UK, the older practice of scarves or hats with team colors. The paint, as we see, has definite ‘battle’ connotations, as well as the scent of tribal practices about it.

And that’s probably not by accident. RamZPaul notes that in his latest, here.

“Rooting for a sports team in the last acceptable form of tribalism that is allowed for White people. You can wear your team’s colors and scream and yell at the television. Grown men end up HATING people who root for the opposing team. At times this hate can result in violence.

The government and media push sports viewership as a way to defuse natural ethnic tribalism.”

Yes. I’ve noticed that too.  It also seems as if the team owners/managers deliberately push ‘diversity’ as a way of getting the majority White male fans to identify with non-Whites. It seems, in my opinion, to have done a lot to break down natural barriers in the Southern states. If you see a sports contest as a battle between ”us” and ”them”, and you identify with your team members as part of ”us”, then there really is no more White or black, at least as long as the game is going on.

As for women sports fans? Traditionally most women are just not as emotionally invested in sports contests as are the men, except maybe for school teams in which your own children are playing, or your kin, or neighbors. Many women who are ‘into’ sports now are interested mostly in the social aspects of it: planning the Super Bowl parties or the tailgate parties, buying all the team merchandise.

Remember when the local teams were really made up of people from that town or area? Then there were natural group-feelings at work. But when team members are all ‘hired guns’ from everywhere, even from other countries, people who don’t speak your language or share your culture, then in what sense do they represent you and your town? But that’s the way the whole world works now.

Women’s ‘tribalism’ exists, though it may not be as strong as with the natural tribalism of men. However it’s not primarily through sports that women’s tribalism is diverted into politically correct channels, but primarily through feminism, through getting women to believe that they have more in common with their ”sisters” on the other side of the world, women of vastly different cultures and genetics, than they have with the men of their own stock. All women are ”sisters” according to the feminist party line, and thus they make alliances with these ”sisters” they’ve never seen against the men of their own folk.

The cultural Marxists are diabolically clever. They’ve split us so many different ways, using our natural impulses to belong to some group, but diverting us away from natural kindred ties, based on genetics, heritage, and culture, and channeled them into more ‘acceptable’ substitutes.

For young people, their group identity is with other young people — only people of their own age ‘speak their language’, share their political obsessions, know all the hip shibboleths created by popular global youth culture. Ever since the early 20th century there has been a conscious effort to split youth from their parents and their elders in general.

Professional sports, feminism, ‘youth’ culture, they are all used to good effect in dividing us against each other. Our enemies have created this situation — with passive help from us. What do we do about it? What’s the old expression — divided we fall?

  1. I’ve always thought corporate elites and black families are permitted to acknowledge the raw talent – and dare I say superior athletic abilities – blacks have in sports that require speed and strength. Perhas there is indeed an agenda behind the disproportionate number of blacks on sports teams, but I think a more basic problem is the clear pass blacks get to make opportunities out of their racial abilities and even be proud of this whereas whites are strictly prohibited from relating any quality with their racial identity whatsoever. That, in my opinion, always signified a clear and distinct opposition to whites.

  2. Nick – you make some good points there, ones that didn’t occur to me.
    It may be that I am getting too cynical but it does seem as though the powers-that-be wanted to promote blacks in sports (as in other areas, like entertainment) so as to promote their acceptance, and it’s worked for the most part, as people seem to tolerate a lot of the misbehavior because as one of my commenters on the other blog once said ”look at how much wonderful entertainment they’ve given us; they contribute so much to our culture,” etc.

    It does seem as if White athletes were crowded out of some sports once blacks became integrated. White (pro) basketball players are getting pretty scarce and of course on the college level many blacks who would not otherwise go to college get scholarships for some sport.
    As you say, blacks excel at certain sports, mostly those involving running and jumping, while they don’t do well at others. The reason for that is because of anatomical and physiological differences — which are not supposed to be mentioned because we’re all the same ‘except for skin color.’


  3. I think you make another good point about college, VA.

    How is the integration of more and more blacks into colleges, many of whom are intellectually undeserving of the privilege, being set up if not at least partially by the scholarships given to black athletes? The black athlete satisfies the work ethic of white men. We say the black kids worked hard, practiced day and night, to achieve such athleticism. Thus, there’s no surprise that blacks are being shipped into to college sports programs all over the country (and colleges are making a fortune of it, creating renowned programs and getting great advertising if they create a great team). But how do more and more blacks at colleges effect the overall standard of education? By my understanding, it’s not good for anyone in more ways than one. But again, if they’re generally undeserving of college in an intellectual capacity, by standardized testing, sports became the loop hole liberal America could exploit to funnel in droves of blacks into higher education. At least, that makes sense to me haha.
