The Lesson Of WHITE RURAL RAGE: They Hate Us. They Will Always Hate Us.

On Sunday Paul Kersey in WHITE RURAL RAGE: THE THREAT TO AMERICAN DEMOCRACY—Another Piece Of Anti-White Hate from Our Elite really said all that needs to be said about this vicious piece of ethnic incitement—a sort of 21st century mirror image of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

Sensibly, Kersey quotes ZeroHedge’s incisive discussion Possibly The Most Overtly Racist Segment Ever On MSNBC, by Tyler Durden, Saturday., March 2, 2024:

The voting public, and especially the rural voting public, should brace themselves for an avalanche of mainstream media and punditry hate directed toward them in the months leading into the November election.

University of Maryland political science professor Thomas Schaller and op-ed writer Paul Waldman… repeatedly called Whites in the countryside and across the land ”racist” and ”anti-democracy”

”They are the most racist, xenophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-gay, geodemographic group in the country,” Schaller said.

They are also derived from the main pre-Revolution population influxes which created America. See Albion’s Seed: Four British Folkways in America by David Hackett Fischer.

So what kind of men are coauthors Schaller and Waldman, neither of whose names seem derived from Britain?

Schaller [Email him] is in the unfortunate situation of being a Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Maryland Baltimore, which ranked 130th in the 2023-2024 U.S. News & World Report rankings of ”National Universities” in the United States.

This means that he has an entry in the fascinating website: Thomas Schaller.

Given the university’s location in Democratic Baltimore County Schaller of course has supporters but his critics raise ominous points:

  • Basically projects his white guilt on other students. Incredibly ignorant of the world outside of his small academic bubble. Lives in a safe suburban enclave but insists he is down for the struggle.
  • Schaller is a tribalist ideologue. He spews class-hatred on the reg and lacks the sophistication of a respected professor/lecturer. Which explains why he is at UMBC and not an esteemed academic institution.
  • if you are coming into this class as a conservative you are going to have a bad time.
  • these so-called ’textbooks’ were more political statements than anything. If you’re a Republican or moderate don’t take this class he will hate you the minute he finds out.

In his UMBC page Schaller says

Since 2004, I have given lectures on American elections in 19 countries on behalf of the U.S. State Department.

This tells you what an anti-American crowd controls the State Department. Of course coauthoring White Rural Rage should utterly disqualify him.

The habitat of Paul Waldman seems to be the mangrove swamps of small ultra-Leftist publications like The American Prospect, supplemented apparently by advances from sympathetic publishers, a lifestyle which is simply not available to the Right.

His failure to get any further is probably due to his being crazy. His Substack The Cross Section demonstrates that he is unable to name anyone he disagrees with except with wild, vitriolic epithets. In When the (Supposed) Enemy of Your Enemy Is Not Your Friend, The Cross Section, December 7, 2023, helpfully subtitled Why I can’t stomach the new right-wing enthusiasm for fighting antisemitism, we learn that despite:

All the antisemitism I experienced growing up in a waspy suburban town with just a handful of Jews was the occasional snide comment, which was easy enough to brush off.

Even publicly being against criticism of Israel is not enough:

I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t trust these people for a second.

Another Cross Section post, And Lo, Did the Evangelicals Deliver Iowa Unto Trump, January 4, 2024, which is a discussion with another bigot called Sarah Posner, is possibly the purest distillation of anti-Christian bile I have encountered in a long time.

Maybe the key insight into Waldman’s character is his Substack post about White Rural Rage, subtitled:

Let me tell you about my new book.


What happened to Professor Schaller?

The lesson from the production and hyping of Rural White Rage:

They hate us.

They will always hate us.

And they are not nice people.
