Will there be riots if President Obama loses? This question is being seriously discussed on gun blogs, places like the Economic Collapse Blog and even (!) Free Republic. Alex Jones of Infowars.com and Matt Drudge of The Drudge Report have picked up the story. (The reclusive Drudge has told his close circle of confidantes: “Alex Jones has the pulse of the nation.”)
If Jones has the pulse of the nation, what does that say about how Americans view their black countrymen?
Perhaps the consumer purchases of Americans speak louder than the almost inaudible public discussion of what will happen when white people—America’s historic majority and founding population—become a minority.
The Wall Street Journal reported in mid-September that gun sales were rising and speculated that were Mr. Obama to be reelected that sales—already at record highs—would spike. [Gun Sales Hinge on Obama Re-Election, By Shelly Banjo, September 14, 2012]
The last time we had nationwide black riots, the Establishment doubled-down on blaming whites via the infamous Kerner Report. It said:
This is our basic conclusion: Our nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal. Reaction to last summer’s disorders has quickened the movement and deepened the division. Discrimination and segregation have long permeated much of American life; they now threaten the future of every American….Race prejudice has shaped our history decisively; it now threatens to affect our future.
White racism is essentially responsible for the explosive mixture which has been accumulating in our cities since the end of World War II.[Kerner Commission Summary Report]
For the past 44 years, this report has shaped how the Establishment has viewed black failure to assimilate.
Perhaps the question shouldn’t be: will there be riots if Barack Obama loses on November 6th—but: what will the Establishment response be?
If it’s anything like the Kerner Report, it might be officially time to go off the grid.
