Next weekend is White-People Independence Day, you know if Juneteenth is Black People Independence Day, well, that means that we get to claim July 4th as our Independence Day. So we'll call it White Independence Day, you know, “WID.”

Letters To The Underground, June 26, 2020

This is a great point. Back before the Civil War, escaped slave Frederick Douglass asked "What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?" His answer: not much. And to the slaves’ descendants, apparently, less.

We might now ask "What To The White Man, Is Juneteenth?"

Juneteenth, as many people have only recently learned, is the day, two months after the surrender at Appomattox, that slaves in Texas finally learned, from Federal troops, that the Confederacy had lost, and they were now free, thanks to the wartime 13th Amendment. (Not the Emancipation Proclamation—that applied only to slaves in states that were in rebellion, so that, for a brief bizarre period, one person legally enslaved in places where General Grant was campaigning was a maid owned by Mrs. General Grant, who often accompanied her husband and was not required to free her slave because she herself was not a rebel).

It's clear that Juneteenth is about black people. That allows us to be clear that the Fourth of July, like most of American history, is about white people. Although black people refuse to accept it, most of American history (including the Civil War) is not about them.

This is the whole point of the New York Times’s much-refuted, but not withdrawn or apologized for “1619 Project”. Their idea—their crazy idea—is that the American colonists only rebelled against Britain because they could see into the future, and realized that 19th Century Britain would become abolitionist, and free their slaves

Be that as it may, one of the reasons many blacks have been refusing to stand for the anthem is that they’re not loyal to the United States of America because the Historic American Nation is white.

Now there’s a plan to play “Lift Every Voice And Sing”, known—unofficially—as the Black National Anthem, at NFL football games.

Black conservative Jon Miller jokes about it here:

However, if you go to black events, at say, a black church, or a “Historically” black college, you’ll hear a lot of “Lift Every Voice”. Written by James Weldon Johnson in 1900, it was promoted  in 1919 by the New York Branch of the NAACP as the “Negro National Anthem”. The NBA played it two years ago during Black History Month [Several NBA Teams Celebrated Black History Month By Playing ‘Negro National Anthem’ At Games, by Warner Todd Huston, Breitbart, March 1, 2018]. It’s also the unofficial anthem of what’s left of Detroit. 

Black Trump-hater Jemele Hill said on Twitter “I can’t wait until the NFL figures out nobody black knows the second verse of Lift Every Voice and Sing.” This is probably true, although many white people don’t know all the verses of the “Star-Spangled Banner”—which contains no reference, as I’ve explained, to American black slavery.

The  first verse of “Lift Every Voice And Sing “ends with “Let us march on ’til victory is won”, which makes you ask “Victory over who?”

I still doubt Donald Trump can win a second term, for reasons I have laid out at length in previous podcasts. My confidence in my own powers of prediction took a jolt this week, though. The jolt came via email from an old friend, a super-smart and worldly guy who enjoys taking a gamble now and then. Here is what he wrote. Quote: I just took a quick look at the election odds. I was hoping Trump woul...

Hell of a month.     Good grief! They looted Macy's!

Yes, the riots, assaults, lootings, and statue-destruction of the past month have been something to watch, and of course the topic of endless comment and speculation.

I've been contributing my own comments at Radio Derb. Speculation-wise, there are two areas concerning which I'd be very interested to see what future historians, with full documentation available to them, have to say:

  • How much of what's been happening is random trouble-making by young people with not much prospect of well-paid employment and way too much time on their hands? As opposed to deliberately staged, managed, or encouraged by organizations trying to influence the November election?
  • Of the deliberately staged/managed/encouraged portion, what sub-portion is being run from abroad?

To the second point there, I aired my suspicions here at VDARE.com, June 7th:

I have this image in mind of the [ChiCom] Politburo gathering of an evening to binge-watch the latest riot coverage, chuckling and passing around the after-dinner mints and maotai … If the CCP doesn't have people in place here helping the rioters, whoever's in charge of ChiCom undercover special ops in North America isn't doing his job.

We shall find out the truth of the matter when the ChiComs lose power and the records are opened up to historians.

To the first point, Old Scratch makes work for idle hands, and we have a lot of idle hands right now. That may be all there is to it.

Or, both the Trump administration and its enemies may be cynically calculating that the riots are to their advantage. Trumpists: This will make plain to patriotic voters how much the Left hates our country, and what happens when Democrats control a city or a state. Anti-Trumpists: If the Feds react with force there'll be widespread outrage; if not, and the riots continue, voters will be disgusted by the Feds' inability to control the situation. Win-win for us.

Certainly, given the prodigious sums we spend on law enforcement, the military, and the National Guard, our city, state, and federal authorities could crush the rioters if they chose to. In my last podcast of the month I quoted a passage from Christopher Caldwell's new book, The Age of Entitlement. The topic here is the forced de-segregation of schools in Boston during the mid-1970s.

When the whites of South Boston and Charlestown protested, their neighborhoods were put under military occupation. "Southie" had a curfew and laws against public assembly, enforced by 1,600 police officers, 100 federal marshals, 50 FBI agents, and 600 National Guard troops.

So, yes, the authorities could restore order if they chose to. They choose not to, and that calls for some explanation.

It's anti-white all the way down    But wait: Isn't it all to do with blacks, with their mistreatment at the hands of police? Black Lives Matter!

Uh-huh. So far I haven't seen anything to disturb my basic template of a Cold Civil War: two big groups of whites at angry loggerheads with each other, blacks recruited in as auxiliaries, allowed on to the battlefield when convenient for some opportunistic looting and white-beating, none of the whites on either side much caring what blacks think or say.

Surveys of this month's protestors back me up. Pew Research has come up with some numbers.

Earlier, by Ann Coulter: Antifa Are A Laugh Riot—Until They Come For You

The Seattle Commune is no more.

Declared three weeks ago by radical leftists as CHAZ, the City Hall Autonomous Zone, rechristened CHOP, the City Hall Occupation Protest, the six-block enclave inside Seattle ceased to exist July 1. The cops shut it down.

As Marx said, history repeats itself, first as tragedy then as farce.

If the Paris Commune of 1871 is the archetype, that mass uprising and swift slaughter of the communards who rose against the regime, what happened in Seattle is the farce.

Earlier: Ann Coulter On Charlottesville: When Liberals Club People, It's With Love In Their Hearts

I wonder if Milo Yiannopoulos, Ben Shapiro, Charles Murray and Heather Mac Donald are reacting to these antifa riots the same way I am.

I mean, not that anyone of us would enjoy the sight of reporters being trapped, chased through the streets and physically assaulted by antifa goons. Or liberal Democrats having to defend their homes with guns in Saint Louis, MO. Or the president hiding in the White House bunker as antifa lays waste to Lafayette Park. Or the mayor of Seattle WA, finally shutting down the CHAZ “summer of love” when the mob came to her house.

They’re all “peaceful protesters”—until they come near you.

Imagine that instead of being a president, mayor or reporter in the vicinity of mentally unbalanced, historically illiterate, thuggishly violent lunatics … imagine that you, personally, are the window they want to smash.

Now you know what it’s like to be a conservative trying to give a speech on a college campus today. (Thanks for all the help, guys!)

Neither the conservative media nor elected Republicans gave a crap about the left-wing paramilitary force that’s been mobilizing since Trump’s election.

Through it all, conservatives stuck their heads in the sand and rationalized insane liberal violence. It was the path of least resistance—and also a smart business move. Cowards could pitch themselves as the “reasonable” ones, then sit back and watch as their more popular conservative competitors were deplatformed, shadow-banned and outright canceled.

Earlier, by James Fulford: The “China Virus” Came From China And Chinese People. AND IT'S OK TO SAY SO

 More than 130,000 Americans have died with or from the Chinese Virus, and another 2.73 million have been infected. Yet little if discussion is heard about the reason it got here so quickly: China. Whether the pathogen oozed out of the repulsive wet markets of Wuhan, or originated in a poorly-managed lab at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a key doorway into the U.S. was through our bloated higher education sector and awful visa programs like the F-1 for students and J-1 for “exchange visitors,” another word for spies. To stop another pandemic, these programs should ne ended, if not for public health then for national security.

College students went back home to China over winter break, contracted the virus, and came back to their respective colleges with a disease the U.S. was ill-prepared to combat. Case in point: my home state of Massachusetts, one of the worst-impacted states. Suffolk County, which includes Boston, had a 2.5 percent coronavirus infection rate as of the today, [Infection2020.com, June 30, 2020]. Contrast that with New York City, considered to have had the worst outbreak nationwide, with a 2.6 percent rate.

Although a Biogen conference that took place in Boston in late February was thought to be a super spreader of the virus, that isn’t where it originated. The first confirmed case: a UMass Boston student who traveled to Wuhan, China for winter break [UMass Boston student first confirmed case of coronavirus in Massachusetts, by Joe Dwinell, Boston Herald, February, 1, 2020].

Wuhan isn’t exactly a tourist destination for white, black, and Latino Americans. I can't say I've ever met someone who cares about the Yellow Crane Tower or Hubei Provincial Museum. As usual, little information about the Bay State’s Patient Zero is public other than his age and status as a student, it’s an almost certain bet that he’s a Chinese student. So one must ask: what was he doing here in the first place?
