Smoke and Mirrors: Conservatism Inc., The Unfair Campaign, and Charlton Heston

It wouldn’t be hard. It wouldn’t take much.

Unfair to be born right? Conservatism Inc. sees profit in exploiting this…

Just a push; a hero to rally around.

You might recall that on January 31, 2012, we published a story called UnFair Campaign: What do men do against such reckless hate? Ride out and meet them. Yesterday, Matt Drudge of the Drudgereport.com resurrected this story and made it – instantaneously – the most talked about story in all of conservative media. The Blaze, Daily Caller, Fox News, HotAir, WND, Newsmax, Mark Levine, Neal Boortz, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity… all had stories detailing the tale of whiteness as the ultimate form of evil, as pronounced by the intellectual giants at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.

A nearly six months old story became the most talked about story in all of America yesterday, with even Bill O’Reilly of The O’Reilly Factor leading off with the story on tonight’s show.

Here’s The Blaze on the story (‘NOT FAIR TO BE WHITE’: SEE THE UNBELIEVABLE NEW CAMPAIGN SPONSORED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA-DULUTH):

Here’s a pop quiz: What do we usually call unsubstantiated assumptions about someone’s class, or position in life, based upon the color of their skin? 

That’s right, racism. And that appears to be what Campus Reform has uncovered at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, which is sponsoring an ad campaign whose core message is very difficult to distinguish from undiluted racism. Watch the ad below if you don’t believe us, and if that doesn’t convince you, keep reading: 

Here is what Campus Reform has to say about the ad campaign: 

The University of Minnesota – Duluth (UMD) is now sponsoring an ad-campaign designed to achieve “racial justice” by raising awareness of “white privilege.” 

The project disseminates its message, that “society was setup for us [whites]“ and as such is ”unfair,” through an aggressive campaign of online videos, billboards, and lectures. The ads feature a number of Caucasians confessing their guilt for the supposed “privilege” that comes along with their fair features.[…] 

“You give me better jobs, better pay, better treatment, and a better chance – all because of the color of my skin,” reads one poster that features a close shot of a Caucasian male. 

The Un-Fair campaign also held a series of lectures and events on campus last semester. 

One included a presentation by Tim Wise, author of Dear White America. In his book, Wise confesses a “longstanding fantasy” where he turns to a man with a “God Bless the USA” button and asks him, “why can’t you just get over it?”

The story at The Blaze has more than 960 comments and has been “liked” on Facebook more than 6,500 times. Yet it ends with this statement:

A few weeks ago, the Blaze reported on the disgustingly racist attitudes of a resident of South Buffalo, who argued in full view of a camera that “blacks ruin neighborhoods.” This absurd stereotype was rightfully condemned. Yet now the University of Minnesota Duluth is lending institutional support to a campaign whose message is essentially “whites ruined the world and are trying to keep it ruined so that they can profit.” Granted, this isn’t particularly surprising, coming from a university whose very administrators consider the Constitution to be a symbol of “white privilege,” but it is still wrong. 

Clearly, the Un-Fair campaign is aptly named.

The white guy in Buffalo who dared speak his mind using facts and logic that are uninvited to polite, tolerable debate on racial matters in Black-Run America (BRA) – basically, never dare point out that Black dysfunction arises from Black people’s accumulated decisions – is a hero; not the one we need right now, nor deserve, but a hero nonetheless.

To be thrown under the bus by a Web site that has spent the past few years building up readership by highlighting Black dysfunction and Black Pack Attacks (Mahogany Mobs) on whites should give you pause before jumping aboard the Glenn Beck Train.

It’s a locomotive straight into I Had A Dream (I HAD) land. What America – white America – needs right now are people who have navigated away from I HAD land; those who have seen what “equality” and “freedom” bring about, and those who understand the rocky terrain and topography of BRA are unwelcoming to white people.

Yes — white people.

White America owes nothing to Black America; once people understand this, the immigration problem and the “Muslim” problem can be dealt with overnight — but until white people in America understand that they are not to blame for the plight (and blight) of Black Americans, well, you might as well look to Detroit in 2012 as the future of all of the nation.

One of those such men was Charlton Heston. His 1999 “Cultural War” speech to Harvard Law School shames anything Patrick Buchanan has ever publicly stated, and is the stuff of legend. In this address, he points out that he was once marched with Martin Luther King for equality, but seems to understand that this laid the groundwork for something far more sinister (what we have termed BRA):

Dedicating the memorial at a Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln said of America, “We are now engaged in a great Civil War, testing whether this nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.” 

Those words are true again. I believe that we are again engaged in a great civil war, a cultural war that’s about to hijack your birthright to think and say what resides in your heart. I fear you no longer trust the pulsing lifeblood of liberty inside you…the stuff that made this country rise from wilderness into the miracle that it is. 

Let me back up. About a year ago I became president of the National Rifle Association, which protects the right to keep and bear arms. I ran for office, I was elected, and now I serve…I serve as a moving target for the media who’ve called me everything from “ridiculous” and “duped” to a “brain-injured senile, crazy old man.” I know…I’m pretty old…but I sure Lord ain’t senile. 

As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I’ve realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it’s much, much bigger than that.
I’ve come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated. 

For example, I marched for civil rights with Dr. King in 1963 – long before Hollywood found it fashionable. But when I told an audience last year that white pride is just as valid as black pride or red pride or anyone else’s pride, they called me a racist. 

I’ve worked with brilliantly talented homosexuals all my life. But when I told an audience that gay rights should extend no further than your rights or my rights, I was called a homophobe. 

I served in World War II against the Axis powers. But during a speech, when I drew an analogy between singling out innocent Jews and singling out innocent gun owners, I was called an anti-Semite. 

Everyone I know knows I would never raise a closed fist against my country. But when I asked an audience to oppose this cultural persecution, I was compared to Timothy McVeigh. 

From Time magazine to friends and colleagues, they’re essentially saying, “Chuck, how dare you speak your mind. You are using language not authorized for public consumption!” 

But I am not afraid. If Americans believed in political correctness, we’d still be King George’s boys – subjects bound to the British crown.

It’s hard to imagine anyone saying something like this today, and being allowed to ever grace the public stage again (perhaps I’m being to hard on Buchanan; after all, MSNBC cut off his access to the picnic table of tolerated punditry). Remember the end of Bowling for Columbine, where the turgid Michael Moore tries to ensnare Heston in public display of racism:

In the climactic final scene of Michael Moore’s Oscar-winning documentary Bowling for Columbine, the highest grossing documentary before Moore’s own Fahrenheit 9/11, the rotund one stalks Charlton Heston, the elderly president of the National Rifle Association, to his lair, and asks him:
Moore: But you don’t have any opinion as to why we’re the unique country, the only country that does this? That kills each other at this level with guns.
 
 Heston: Well, we have, probably a more mixed ethnicity, than other countries, some other countries.
Moore pounces on Heston’s shocking faux pas:
Moore: …So you think it’s an ethnic thing?
Sensing his gaffe, Heston paddles desperately upstream:

Heston: Well, I don’t think it’s—I wouldn’t go as far as to say that. We had enough problems with civil rights in the beginning.

A Public Display of Racism is the most punishable offense against BRA one can perform (just look at how Glenn Beck’s The Blaze castigates the white guy from Buffalo who shamed all of modern conservatism with his accurate description of what Black people do to a neighborhood and a community).

What should be most frightening to Conservatism Inc. (the term used to describe the incestuous nexus of Beltway Non-Profits/I HAD Pundits/Religious-End-of-Time Zealots, etc.) is the realization that beneath the veneer of the Republican Party beats a heart of something frightening.

Just read the comments of the big right-of-center Web sites: look at Daily Caller‘s comments; look at The Blaze; look at any of the threads that appear at the affiliate of NBC/CBS/ABC/Fox in a city where another episode of Black people engaging in stereotypically Black behavior…

Lurking behind the heart of Conservatism Inc., is the heart of the America Charlton Heston spoke of in his “Cultural War” speech — the heart of the America that is so far losing the war.

In one moment, this cultural war could end. Few people dare say that the “cultural war” is really a racial war, an attempt to permanently subjugate white people into a form of financial servitude (you can exist as long as you keep paying taxes to promote the proliferation of non-whites, who will day vote for more and more goodies that you will pay for).

That’s the fragility of this whole system.

White America owes Black America nothing. Once you understand this, any attempt at having you live in a world where groveling at the table of tolerance for scraps will be futile.

America is almost ready for the Fair Campaign. Are you?
