Barack Obama is obviously racist. His close friends and allies Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Louis Farrakhan are obviously racist. The Black Lives Matter movement is obviously racist. And yet they all audaciously, absurdly, and shamelessly claim that whites are, especially the police. What could be more outrageous and loathsome? Well, how about the fact that today Barack Obama is speaking at the memorial for the five Dallas police officers he helped murder. And virtually no-one is noting the limitless irony and horror of that.


Left and Right

"It's all well and good to argue that Obama is a racist. But if you don't get the rest; i.e. the whole-scale race war that is being orchestrated by Leftists in an attempt to destroy their true enemy, white conservatives, as part of a modern eschatology that is embedded in the new leftist egalitarian religion, then you do not understand the world in which you live."

The philosophically illiberal Left and illiberal Right are united in their support of the welfare state, collectivism, altruism, religion, general irrationality, etc. They both are about 2/3rds anti-liberal and 1/3 pro-liberal. They mostly reject modernity and The Enlightenment. This is the issue. Backing the wildly irrational and ignorant Right is foolish and suicidal. Ayn Rand backed the philosophical Right 80 years ago. She was intellectually, morally, and strategically wrong then; and virtually all Right-backing Objectivists are intellectually, morally, and strategically wrong today.

its deeper than Obama's racism

Yes, Obama is a racist. But it goes much deeper than that. The Objectivist movement has not and seemingly will not come to grips with the cultural realities they are faced with. They are stuck at Rand's cultural views which are outdated now. She wrote during a time, as Lindsay and I have been saying, when Andy Griffith was the top of TV and Mario Lanza was the top of radio. And she felt *that world was corrupt*.

Today the cultural dynamic is very different. The Left has ideological and political domination over EVERY aspect of culture. The Objectivist fear of "M2 Christian theocrats" is criminally stupid. In today's Leftist culture, blacks (and all non-whites basically) are taught to HATE whites. A murderous white hatred is inculcated from birth by white liberals. This is combined with the entitlement mindset which is the application of today's altruism. As a result pretty much all blacks operate within the context of a fast growing black nationalism that is increasingly becoming militarized.

With regards to white people here is the dynamic that essentially no Objectivist understands. The most important cultural war going on today is between white people. Specifically white left-liberals and white non-liberals (mostly conservatives and nationalists). We are witnessing an intra-racial white status war. Fierce in / out group dynamics have been developed and if you are not part of the leftist in group or if you defy any of their tenets then they will try to destroy you. And they will use whatever means to do so (including social media; "Twitter rage swarms").

My suspicion is that this is a continuation of the intra Christian wars of centuries ago. But instead of Christian sects today the dominant religion, a secular civic religion, is modern liberalism which is the ideology of outcome, racial, gender egalitarianism. Today's egalitarianism is probably the result of the secularization of Christianity which has occurred over the last three centuries. That movement has as its stated objection the DESTRUCTION of anything associated with white, traditional, heterosexual, European, Christian society. That is the foundation of the Left's hatred of the Right.

Barrack Hussein Obama is just a mixed race Mulatto who is "cashing in" on the cultural dynamics set by the Left. And of the innate racial tribalism of blacks which has been directed against whites by Leftist elites. Its all well and good to argue that Obama is a racist. But if you don't get the rest; ie the whole scale race war that is being orchestrated by Leftists in an attempt to destroy their true enemy, white conservatives, as part of a modern eschatology that is embedded in the new leftist egalitarian religion, then you do not understand the world in which you live. That eschatology is the ultimate transformation of society into a society without racial distinctions, without gender distinctions, without economic classes, without private property, without nuclear families and ultimately without individuals themselves. If the Left had the power of genetic engineering, they would reengineer humanity in line with their egalitarian visions. They are warped, twisted psychopaths that need to be slaughtered in mass. Not debated. Personally I would bring back Crucification for Leftist elites but that's me. I'm mean.

Whites are under attack and becoming a minority in their former homelands will be the BIGGEST tragedy in history. Whites could be the victims of BRUTAL ethnic attempts in the coming generations. How many Objectivists or libertarians consider that important? That the answer is zero is the true sin of the Objectivist movement.
