On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller LifeKevin Williamson has penned a volcanic, brutal piece about the white trash component of Trump's legions. Using the depressed, dysfunctional town of Garbutt as an example, it thunders wonderfully with Copybook Headings goodness like this.
(Which started by loving our neighbor and ended by loving his wife)
Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”
In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”
The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too. The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.In paragraphs prior, Kevin details the destruction of the white, traditional family which lags the obliteration of the black family only by years. It's a difference in amount, not in kind. Kevin's received a lot of flack over this, but methinks that if it was yet another piece on the effects of 75% illegitimacy in the black community, who support the Democrats, that would have been just fine. That he went after whites who support Trump is another story entirely.
If you want to live, get out of Garbutt.
To me, this election is indeed a paragraph from Kipling's The Gods of the Copybook Headings. Add up the voters for Sanders, Clinton and Trump and you get a majority of America voting for free stuff bought with printed money and a political strongman-Daddy. This is what you get when you wipe out the foundations of civilization, but you haven't yet had the Gods of the Copybook Headings return. We want our treats, but we don't want the self-denial they require.
So that was Kevin Williamson whacking the Trumpkins. Here's Ben Shapiro obliterating the Democrats' pet constituency whose horrific self-destruction has been excused and excused and excused.
Note how the BLM folks have no response. They're so used to being treated like privileged children and they've never encountered a dissenting opinion. The whole experience of someone like Ben tearing their fundamental arguments to shreds is new to them.
So on the right we have self-destructive whites angry that reality doesn't reward indulgence and on the left it's the blacks. Hurrah.
As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man—
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began —
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire—
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
