Matt Parrott – White Identity Politics vs. Libertarianism

. . . So, in summary, identity politics are good when they’re against straight, white men and they’re bad when they’re for them? Got it. Funny how Reason, National Review, and so many others devolve into hysterical SJW tumblr blogs when race comes up. It’s jarring that just a few years ago, the neocon establishment were fighting like hell to drive back the libertarian entryists, and now the libertarians are their only hope against a tsunami of outright white nationalism.

It’s the identity, stupid! Just as Bill Clinton managed to steal the momentum from Bush Sr. back in 1992 by having a better grasp of what actually mattered to voters at that time, Donald Trump has managed to steal the momentum from his son Jeb by tapping into what actually matters to contemporary voters: identity. The strong network of taboos and tribulations awaiting those who speak up for White folks ensures that it remains in the realm of signals and dog whistles, but you can’t enforce a taboo against feeling feelings.

Katrina, the hurricane which broke the levees in New Orleans has a name and receives the blame. But the actual cause of the flood and mayhem was decades of neglect, malinvestment, political ineptitude, and natural processes of sedimentation and erosion. The hurricane which broke the levees against White identity politics in America has the biggest name of all and will receive all of the blame. But the levee was going to break one way or another, under the weight of decades of neglect, malinvestment, political ineptitude, and demographic processes weighing on White Americans.

Ben Domenech and the rest of his libertarian minions can’t kill us and won’t co-opt us, because he’s playing by 20th Century political rules. American politics have gone tribal, and the only hope for libertarians at this point is to drop the abstractions and look for ways to tap into the organic individualism unique to the Western mind. With the exception of some paid guest speakers, libertarianism is just some stuff White people like. The paradox for libertarians is that Trump’s para-fascist campaign can and will deliver the freedom, liberty, and small government that Ron Paul and his anti-White, “anti-racist” son can only promise.
