“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Why Do Liberals Hate The White Middle and Working Class?

You can say anything you like to disparage whites. Criticize their food, their religion, the way they dance, anything you like is fair game. Call them white trash, stupid, prejudiced. Make fun of their ethics, their ancestors if you like. Use the expression of something being the result of "dead white men". You will get an automatic pass. But then try this. Say, "black trash". Point out that black males between the ages of fifteen and thirty- five make up a little over 2% of the US population and then mention they commit 55% of violent crimes. Don't believe it? Do the math.

This same white hating prejudice goes on in England. Here is an interesting article which appears in The Telegraph.

In defence of the white working class

Anti-racism has become the central theme of today's political culture, yet the obsessive concern for racial sensitivities rarely seems to be applied to the white working class. This is the one ethnic group that it is perfectly acceptable to insult and ignore.

Once regarded as the backbone of Britain, the people who saved our country in two world wars, the indigenous, less affluent, sector of the population is now treated with contempt by liberal elitists, who sneer at the supposed idleness, vulgarity, xenophobia and ignorance of so-called "chavs" or "white trash".

This kind of repellent snobbery and prejudice was captured in an extraordinary outburst from newspaper columnist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown. Condemning white working-class Britons as "either too lazy or too expensive to compete" in the new era of multi-racialism, she wrote that "tax-paying immigrants past and present keep indolent British scroungers on their couches drinking beer and watching TV".

Such comments are not only offensive, but also factually incorrect, since levels of unemployment and welfare dependency are actually much higher in certain immigrant communities. According to the Office of National Statistics, 35 per cent of Muslim households have no adult in employment, more than twice the national average, though no liberal columnist would dream of ever writing about "Muslim scroungers".

The growing ostracism of the white working class is highlighted in a report out today by the Tory party's Social Justice Policy Group, chaired by the former leader Iain Duncan Smith. In his report, Duncan Smith warns that white pupils from poor backgrounds are performing worse at schools than any other ethnic group. He fears that there is a danger of creating "an uneducated and unemployable underclass of forgotten children".

On top of the crisis in education, white workers are also confronted with economic difficulties, since they are disproportionately employed in the declining manufacturing industries, while in the services sector their wages are under pressure because of mass immigration. Yet, instead of having their plight recognised, they are condemned by the nanny-employing classes for their insular racism and reluctance to struggle on minimal pay.

If the experience of poor urban whites were happening to other groups, there would be an outcry, followed by official inquiries, commissions, reports, and positive action plans. But nothing of the sort will occur. The entire thrust of the state machine is to address the needs of ethnic minorities, not the hard-pressed indigenous population.

The public sector is now filled with initiatives geared towards blacks and Asians, whether they be special housing, positive action training schemes, or community grants. No less than 10 per cent of all Arts Council funding, for instance, is explicitly given to ethnic minority groups, while the BBC makes a fetish of minority recruitment, reflected in the famous comment of the former director general Greg Dyke that the corporation is "hideously white". That is the attitude that prevails in our civic institutions. The celebration of diversity is a one-way street, with every culture treated with reverence except the traditional British one.


  1. I've been hammering away at this for weeks now. It's a racial thing. We are now doing penance for the sins of our forebears.

    Screw that.

    As someone who is not a member of either team, I find that the most astonishing thing about this self-immolation of whites is that it is entirely voluntary. Just a few decades ago there were mandatorily separate water fountains for whites and blacks; today the whites would lap up water from a water trough if they could get one installed on campus.

  3. There are always a numbers of factors in this particular social equation. I'll attempt to be succinct as opposed to Master length dissertation and erudition.
    1. Slavery, what Jefferson called the snake under the table took too long to die in this country, giving rise to white guilt.

    2. Integration laws forced society to conform to a seismic shift in culture within an unnatural period of time. This leads to enormous social dislocation and tension. Business and schools feared law suits, and many were brought, some specious, others valid. But those institutions accelerated the rate of change..quotas for color.

    3.The McCarthy hearings which branded many in Hollywood as "fellow travellers" and created a black list of actors and actresses. The old saying "never argue with a man that buys ink by the barrel" applies in spades to men who use film as propaganda. Hollywood immdiately began a crusade to belittle white America. And what Hollywood does becomes the American trend, it's chic and "in".

    4. Politicians fear that the country would burn became real in the 1960's and the Jesse Jackson corporate and governmental "shakedown" became ernest in it's attempts to ride the guilt gravy train. It's success was enormous.

    5. The above #4 backed up by NOI(Nation of Islam) and the Black Panthers showed America was vulnerable to a giant race war, so blacks just followed the Panthers and the Rainbow Coalition and the redistribution of wealth created a new plantation while simultaneously freeing the black male from any family responsibilities. In Detroit inner city two years ago 100% of all black babies born were "illegitimate".

    6. Freud and athletics. Bigger,faster, better black athletes in high schools and colleges became the "alpha" males and inter-racial dating made it easier for contempt to be shown overtly to whites. Bling,rap and the black culture became the model if you wanted to be "cool".

    7. Quotas and race norming of tests. Getting ahead by being black, not for having certain skill sets.

    8. A rejection by blacks of this countries "white" heritage and the concomitant damning of it.

    White society had no response as "hate " laws were passed that made the most innocent slight a felony and no defense against #7 which was a "reparation" for 300 year old ills.
    So you end up with "White Men Can't Jump"...imagine a movie entitled "Black Men Can't Do Higher Mathematics"

    Now the black culture is in danger of being elbowed out of power by the Latino population and that tension is growing.

    The pendelum does swing and usually too far in both directions.
    It is a saving grace that many of the above did happen because it allowed a black middle class to develop that otherwise would have taken much longer to do so. It gave them a bigger stake in America but no repect for the whites that made it possible.

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Oh yeah there's a good deal whip it, whip it good.

  5. For some basic just read the reviews at on Thomas Sowells book "Black Rednecks and White Liberals"

  6. The reason this has gone this way so long is because young white people were rises to be fair I think.
    This reminds me of a parent that felt guilty for getting their kide in the past and now as penance allowed their kids indulgences. The problem is some now have abused it.
    The other reason is there agent enough young white people to fight back.
    Black people who hate whites who die nothing to them I feel are new sinners and I think God will punish them one day for being just as bad.
    Humans who week revenge I feel always create new problems or enemies down the road.
    Its a pity that both groups cannot respect each other from this point on.
