Canonizing and demonizing

At SBPDL, there is a post about the recent media canonization of celebrities who have died in recent years, namely Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Prince, and now Cassius Marcellus Clay (better known by his Moslem name, Muhammad Ali.) Incidentally, how many are aware that Cassius Clay/’Muhammad Ali’ was named after another Cassius Clay, a White Southron politician? I would suspect very few. I suppose one motive for the name change was the fact that it was seen as servile for a black to be named after a White politician, even though that politician “saw the light” and became an abolitionist.

But back to the main point: the people we are being encouraged (almost required) to honor and speak reverently of, now that they are dead, were people that in previous times would not have earned public respect and approval; quite the opposite. I agree fully with Paul Kersey on that point.

I would include David Bowie in the list of people who are being unjustly praised as some kind of heroes, though he was a White Englishman, but he too is being canonized for his ‘service’ in advancing the cause of transgenderism/androgyny and general subversion of traditional morality. In a way, too, I wonder if he is not being given the same adulation as the black celebrities because he, after all, was married to a black woman, so he was an early poster boy for the miscegeny agenda, which is now being very blatantly and obviously pushed on the White population.

Bowie’s ‘race-realist’ fans insist that his interracial marriage ‘doesn’t count’ because the children he fathered were White. Whatever. I do notice that the alt-right/pro-Whites who join in the praise for these people are quick to find ways to rationalize to themselves their admiration for these people, and to defend that loyalty against fellow Whites who challenge it. It’s amazing how adept people can be at rationalizing and compartmentalizing — but “a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways” as a certain Book says.

Though I agree with the overall message of Kersey’s post, I am disappointed to note that he is of the growing body of alt-right/pro-White bloggers who blame the post-war Baby Boom generation for everything that is wrong.

“It’s becoming increasingly obvious the Baby Boomer generation offered absolutely nothing of value save their slavish devotion to their own racial dispossession.”

All right, but what, exactly have succeeding generations offered? All the statistics I’ve seen on racial attitudes, immigration, and general political orientation show that each generation is more liberal in every way, especially on race and immigration matters, more politically correct, and yes, more ‘cucked’ than their Baby Boom elders (parents or grandparents).

The polling finds that older generations – Boomers and especially Silents – do not fully embrace diversity. Fewer in these groups see the increasing populations of Latinos and Asians, as well as more racial intermarriage, as changes for the better. For many Silents in particular, Obama himself may represent an unwelcome indicator of the way the face of America has changed. Feelings of “unease” with Obama, along with higher levels of anger, are the emotions that most differentiate the attitudes of Silents from those of the youngest generation.

Critics of boomers, from what I’ve been witnessing, don’t offer any statistics or facts to back up their sweeping assertions and broad-brush generalizations. I have never yet once seen any facts or data to back these assertions, which a lot of people make. I’ve written blog posts asking for some specifics, and though people on the right pride themselves on dealing with facts and reality rather than emotion, no facts have been brought out to support the ‘boomers are guilty’ claims.

I always wonder just why, exactly, the Baby Boom generation is despised by the later generations. Is it because of their hedonistic, juvenile lifestyle? If so, why do the succeeding generations appear to be outdoing the boomers in hedonism and extreme behavior?

Were boomers more liberal than the Gen X, Gen Y/Millennials on racial matters? Not if you go by the numbers of people who marry outside their race and who have children who are racially mixed. The younger generations far surpass the older people this way.

Or was it the boomers’ opposition to the Vietnam war? I’ve noticed that today’s alt-right is more anti-war than even the boomers were, so that can’t be the cause of the animus.

As to who passed all the laws which led to today’s civilizational train wreck, the ‘Civil Rights’ act, Brown vs. Board of Education, the Hart-Celler immigration travesty of 1965, Roe v. Wade in the 70s, and feminism — those were the work  of earlier generations; the post-war baby boomers were not of age and did not control Congress or government, not by a long shot, when those things were inflicted on us.

Even the ‘counterculture’, whose principles still guide the younger generations (recreational drug use, legalizing drugs, ‘free love’, easy abortion, idolizing the Third World, tattooing, body piercing, the general vulgarity of our culture today) can’t be called the work of the sixties youth; it was originated by older generation members, people like Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsburg, the so-called ‘Beats’, Owsley the LSD apostle — all of them well past their youth in the 1960s. Some of these people are known to have connections to Intelligence, and the whole counterculture was likely conceived by people in high places; it was a great vehicle for subverting everything good in America.

I would applaud the Gen X, Gen Y, and all the younger people for loathing boomers — IF they by doing that repudiate and shun all the destructive aspects of the Counterculture, all of the things I listed above. But that doesn’t seem to be happening; the younger generations seem to carry on the worst traditions of the worst of the boomers.

Finally I do find it most ironic that many people who detest boomers are looking to a baby boomer — Donald Trump — as the only possible hope for extricating us from this mess.  And Trump is not that atypical; the ‘hippies’ were a smallish segment of that age group who were hyped and publicized to excess by the media, magnifying their actual numbers and influence. The influence they did have, as a small group, was created by the media, and apparently used by the Powers that Be.

  1. You have raised a good point on the blame the Boomer phenomenon. It is bigger than the Alt-Right who can blame Boomers explicitly for race betrayal, as they see it in many cases.

    Perhaps Boomers are despised because they had all the advantages of growing up in Whitopia, free to roam, and now that is lost. Boomers symbolize the bombing of America that has taken that all away.

    What was once a birth right is now past. Boomers are the living symbol of the transition. To the younger generations now living with the pain of being turned out of Paradise, they can only complain of how good Boomers had it. They are powerless to change or reverse it.

    This applies even to PC cohorts who are afraid or even unable to name the racial aspect of this. They simply notice the disparity in their lives and those of the Boomers. They sense a hypocrisy even if they can’t pin it down.

    As you point out, the controlled media is hyping these celebrities that it created in the first place. They were always fake. Their purpose was to hide the destruction being wrought by Blacks on cities. Take a state like New Jersey and look at the list of largest cities by population. They are places to avoid. That is true in state after state. Now it his hitting the last White states to hold out. This is clearly being done by design.

    Some Boomers are doing this on purpose. A larger group know it is being done on purpose but stay silent. They are complicit with this destruction and they are the ones most in a position to speak out about who is doing it and the means used. They deserve to be blamed and shamed so that some might speak out.


  2. Thanks, VA, for another very thoughtful and thought provoking post. I agree that the secular “alt right” will line up with the left on cultural matters most of the time. The “music” they approve of is indeed awful, as are the perpetrators of same.Those of us on the real right who are Christians (or at least try to be) are a VERY small group indeed. Please keep up[ the fight.


  3. Totally non-philosophical comment- but I was forced to run a number of errands the other day, and thus subjected, much against my will, to lots of diversity, as well as unending piped-in noise that passes for music these days. As I was hurrying to finish up in one place, to the wailing background of Whitney Houston, it occurred to me she sounded just like Barbra Streisand. Pure vocal ego and endless, mindless emoting in song.

    While technical musical skill is something I can admire in abstract, I’d argue that for most, music means melody and tune. For some of us, it also includes clever lyrics. I may loathe the private life of Cole Porter, but I admire his verbal cleverness. I know almost nothing about Ella Fitzgerald, but I much enjoy her singing Cole Porter songs because she is the medium, not the message. I don’t celebrate Meat Loaf’s life and times, but I’ve adopted “Bat Out of Hell” as my personal anthem, particularly when working out.

    I’d posit that’s what’s behind much of the boomer hate (and based purely on birth year, I’m part of the tail end of boomers). It’s the never ending celebration of ego.
