This BLM “Moral Panic” Is Happening Because America’s Rulers Are Afraid. They Should Be.

Earlier, by Ann Coulter: Donald McNeil And The Attack Of The Woke Teen Career Killers

In 2019, I reported that British academic Noah Carl had found, using a Twitter survey (a forecasting method for which there’s surprising scientific support) that (incredible as it may then have seemed) we were probably still pre-Peak Woke. The 2020 Black Lives Matter “Moral Panic” has cleared proved that Carl’s Twitter followers were right. Can this go on forever? The good news: those who have researched Moral Panics have found that they always eventually burn out. The bad news: they can leave a relatively permanent legacy. The less obvious news: they happen because powerful interests feel afraid.

Certainly, the BLM Moral Panic has reached insane levels. This is nowhere clearer than in the way in which the very same anti-racist liberals who have spent decades setting up our current “racism”-obsessed society are now themselves being burnt alive because ever-intensifying witch-hunt for previous alleged racial insensitivity. Most recently, New York Times stalwart Donald McNeil has been “struggled against” in the BLM-Maoist Cultural Revolution.

McNeil’s crime: To have repeated the “n-word”  when discussing, with a group of students, whether it was acceptable to use it in certain contexts e.eg. rap songs. With this past blasphemy unearthed—along with his failure to immediately recant—he has been metaphorically burned at the stake.

One of Carl’s Twitter followers quoted in my 2019 article asserted: “Wait until the millennials are in societal leadership positions in 5 to 10 years’ time and Gen Z are all in their 20s, that’s when we’ll hit Peak Woke.”

Maybe it only took three years.

I'm developing a theory about the new administration's immigration policy. It's still half-baked, but let me try it out on you. I'm sure you have seen the stories about our Southern border.

Up through, roughly, Barack Obama’s re-election, Silicon Valley and Hollywood assumed that all this talk about diversity only applied to old-fashioned conservative companies, like oil, but not to them because they were liberal and cool and couldn’t possibly be racist.

The news recently has featured a spate of people behaving badly. It reveals an increasingly prominent class issue: the widening rift between working-class and lower-middle-class people (manual workers, clerks, small business owners, low-level government staff) and their social superiors in the Ruling Class (billionaires, celebrities, politicians, college professors, corporate media Talking Heads, Human Resources directors, federal power-holders etc.)

This recent lack of respect has all been, as the French say, de haut en bas, "from the high to the low."

  • First case study: The flap at Smith College about a black student's complaint that she was harassed for "eating while black."

This is actually an old story from July of 2018. It's come into the news again because a low-level white employee at Smith College resigned on February 19th complaining of an anti-white work environment. [ Resignation letter from Smith College employee describes hostile workplace, president responds , by Kate Wilkinson, WWLP, Feb 26, 2021]

Smith College is a tony liberal-arts college for women in Northampton, Massachusetts. A year at Smith will cost your parents a tad over $78,000. The only other thing I've heard about Smith is that is the world, if not Solar system, if not galactic, headquarters of lesbianism … but that's just hearsay.

The story in short: A cafeteria and attached lounge was closed to students for the summer, so high-schoolers on a summer camp program could use it. A black student, Oumou Kanoute (right) raised in the U.S.A. by immigrant parents from Mali, ignored this and took her lunch there anyway, disregarding a reminder from one of the cafeteria workers, a white female.

While she was eating her lunch, a 60-year-old white male janitor—let's call him Janitor One—saw her there and told campus security. A different janitor, 58 years old, call him Janitor Two, accompanied a campus cop back to the lounge to tell the student she wasn't supposed to be there.

This janitor was also white, as was the cop. There are a lot of those durn white people in Western Massachusetts. When are we going to fix that?

The black student made a fuss on social media, the college authorities groveled and flagellated themselves, Janitor One was put on paid leave, and a law firm was hired to investigate the incident.

They found nothing, of course; but the college went on groveling regardless.

They offered no apologies for their behavior: no apology to the cafeteria lady, the janitors, or the cop, all of whom had been denounced all over social media—and even in some legacy media—for their cruel, arrogant white supremacy.

Earlier by Patrick J. Buchanan: The Left Are the True "Domestic Terrorists"

"That attack, that siege" of the Capitol, FBI Director Chris Wray told Congress, "was criminal behavior, plain and simple, and it was behavior we at the FBI view as domestic terrorism."

"Domestic terrorism," said Wray, echoing his boss.

For what had been President-elect Joe Biden's reaction to the Capitol riot?

"Don't dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It's that basic. It's that simple," said Biden.

Yet, the phrase domestic terrorism conjures up events from our past far graver than a four-hours occupation of the Capitol. Nat Turner's rebellion. John Brown's 1859 raid on Harper's Ferry. Timothy McVeigh and Oklahoma City.

The near assassination of Harry Truman at Blair House by Puerto Rican nationalists, Nov.1, 1950. The shooting and wounding of five congressmen from the House gallery on March 1, 1954.

The 1974 bombing of New York's Fraunces Tavern—where Gen. George Washington said farewell to his officers—also the work of Puerto Ricans demanding independence. Four died there and 50 were injured.

Yet, in the "domestic terrorism" at the Capitol, no protester set off a bomb, toppled a statue, or fired a weapon. Of the four who died that day, all were protesters. Ashli Babbitt, 35, a 14-year Air Force veteran, was shot to death by a Capitol cop as she tried to force her way into the Senate chamber.

A rioter and law-breaker, yes, but a terrorist who deserved to die?

Earlier: Michelle Malkin At AFPAC II: “Bloody, But Unbowed”

AFPAC II was three times as large as AFPAC I, pulling in 600 young people. And I mean young! While I was waiting to check in, one of the cheerful young men asked me how old I was. I’m thirty, and I must have been in the oldest one percent! He nodded, saying “Everyone is so young here! Early 20s I think!” When I told my boss this story, he said a young man should know better than ask a lady her age. Funny thing is, I’m used to answering this question at political conferences, like AmRen, but this is the first time I felt OLD!

As we were entering the ballroom, one of the young men asked “Were you nervous meeting Nick? After seeing him so many times on the stream?” Another introduced himself by his twitter handle. And afterwards, a young man pulled Michelle Malkin aside to tell her about his new Gab account.

A female friend and I were stoked to see Lauren Witzke in attendance with the handful of other women in this sea of sharply-dressed young men. In the reception area, the always-confident Laura Loomer stood out in a deep purple pantsuit.

Though the audience was overwhelmingly (and unashamedly) white, there were also a few black and Asian allies. (And not just Jon Miller, who joked from the stage about being a token black speaker.) I was lucky enough to find my way into open seat next to Bryson Gray.

Being a Boomer at thirty, I had no idea who he was, but luckily Jaden McNeil introduced us. (For the other Boomers out there, Bryson Gray is a pro-Trump, pro-Life, pro-2A black rapper.) Known for his song, Hate Speech, Gray said, “I believe in free speech—all speech."

Politicians with courage (in Spain)    In the Senate impeachment trial of Donald Trump, February 9th-13th, video footage was shown of events in the Capitol building during the January 6th protests.

I had things to say about that video footage in my February 12th podcast. They were not very kind things. I spoke of the congressfolk "scampering off to safety under the guidance of armed Capitol Hill cops while an un-armed mob filled the corridors."

I quoted a friend's email from earlier in the year, one that had made such an impression on me, I'd posted it here on VDARE.com at the time. Here it is again.

Not a single person had the courage to go out and confront a man wearing buffalo horns flanked on either side with what looked like cast tryouts for Duck Dynasty. Had one person done so, he would now be the frontrunner for the presidency in 2024.

That February 12th podcast brought in an email from a different friend, reminding me of a real attempted coup forty years ago this month.

This was in Spain, February 23rd 1981. Francisco Franco had died five years previously after almost forty years of authoritarian rule. His chosen successor was Juan Carlos of the old Spanish royal family, who set about liberalizing Spain in the direction of a constitutional monarchy. Juan Carlos appointed 43-year-old Adolfo Suárez as Prime Minister in mid-1976.

A free election was held a year later, the first since the civil war of 1936-39. Adolfo Suárez' party won a plurality and he continued as Prime Minister. The following year a new constitution was approved, fulfilling Juan Carlos' goal: Spain had become a democratic state under constitutional monarchy. In the next election in 1979, Adolfo Suárez' party again won a plurality and he again continued as Prime Minister.

It's an uplifting story of an old, proud nation making the transition from authoritarian rule to representative, constitutional democracy in just four years, 1975-79. It was a rocky road, though, as I guess it was bound to be. There were some seriously disgruntled factions in the new Spain, especially on the political right.

In February 1981 one of those factions staged a coup: a real, armed coup, not just some comedians in buffalo horns committing trespass. Antonio Tejero of Spain's Civil Guard (approximately a uniformed equivalent of the FBI) with armed colleagues entered the lower chamber of Spain's parliament while it was in session.

What they were in session about was the swearing-in of a new Prime Minister. Adolfo Suárez had resigned a month earlier, facing a revolt in his party and plagued with health problems. The swearing-in roll call was being taken when Tejero and his pals stormed into the chamber.

Quote from Adolfo Suárez' 2014 obituary in the London Guardian:

Suárez displayed remarkable physical courage, being one of only three parliamentarians who refused to obey Tejero's order to lie on the floor.

One of the other two was Deputy Prime Minister and former army General Gutiérrez Mellado; the other was Communist Party leader Santiago Carrillo. Concerning the former, the coup's Wikipedia page records that:
