Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of complaining about the Leftist Narrative, and much of it has been from yours truly. It’s easy to attack the Leftist Narrative – because it flies in the face of the reality we experience every day. It’s so preposterous that it offends our sensibilities. Here’s a comment I found on Yahoo that sums up the Leftist Narrative:
There is a war on women, black people are oppressed, the economy is fine, global warming is your fault and now you’re going to pay for it, Obama can do no wrong, big government is the answer to everything, there is no God, homosexuality is just as normal or even superior to heterosexuality, illegal immigrants have just as many rights as a U.S. citizen, only whites can be racist and they owe every other race, men are inferior to women, strict gun control, feelings are more important than the truth, moral relativism (nothing is right or wrong,) socialism is better than freedom, multiculturalism and diversity are somehow good for society, every culture is equal to every other culture, gender is a social construct, and to hate everything else about America
I think that, for the most part, the commenter is right. As for individual leftists, they may subscribe to half of the above list, give or take.
But the pro-white crowd has its own Narrative. It can be summed up as follows:
There is a war on white men. Black people have never created, or invented, anything of value. Blacks never invented their own system of writing. Miscegenation, involving whites, is always bad. Muslims are evil, and always in the wrong. Islam is responsible for Female Genital Mutilation and honor killings. Only white, or Asian, societies can be truly civilized and safe. Only whites are targeted for genocide through mass immigration.
Pro-whites are human, and like other humans, we sometimes view life too simplistically. The truth is usually less clear-cut.
Yes, there is a war against white men, but the enemies of white men are typically other white men.
Yes, black societies tend to be backward, and the inventions of blacks are either exaggerated or conjured up out of thin air. But there actually is a native black African form of writing. Nsibidi was invented in Nigeria and, though somewhat crude, does seem to qualify as an actual form of writing. Furthermore, Nigeria was home to ancient cultures that produced some impressive artwork.
As for black societies always being dangerous and crime-ridden, one must take other factors into consideration. Specifically, whether the society is culturally intact and how large it is. Island communities, or tight-knit communities, tend to be safer. As for my own experience, I never felt seriously threatened in Ethiopia or in Madagascar.
I have already presented my take on miscegenation here.
I am no fan of Islam, but I’ve known some very decent people who are Muslim. I’ve visited two Muslim countries (Egypt and Brunei) and found both places welcoming and hospitable. Crime wasn’t a concern in either place.
The Chinese government has been persecuting the Uighurs, who are mainly Muslim, and trying to force them to give up their religion. Though the origins of the Uighurs are unclear, for all practical purposes, they are now the native inhabitants of some parts of western China. China has been importing millions of ethnic Han Chinese (the majority ethnic group in China) into these regions – with the clear intent of rendering the Uighurs a minority in their own lands.
I’m no expert on this matter. In fact, I’ve never even met a Uighur. But it appears to me that their faith is crucial to their identity, much as Judaism is crucial (in the long run) to Jewish identity. So, for all the anti-Muslim rhetoric we’re used to from the Right, I do tend to sympathize with the Uighurs in this conflict.
The Uighurs, though partly Indo-European, are not white – and yet they’re being dispossessed of their native lands through mass immigration. The same is true of the Tibetans.
Regarding Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), it’s not specifically a Muslim practice. Many non-Muslim Africans do it. The Mursi tribe in Ethiopia, which I visited, practice it, and they’re animists. But since there are some Muslim countries where it’s widespread, some people mistakenly attribute it to Islam. This does not seem to be accurate.
The areas that now comprise the Muslim world held many ancient traditions, some of them barbaric. Of these barbaric traditions, some were codified into Islam – such as wife-beating. Others continued alongside Islam, while others became less popular. According to Islamic tradition, female infanticide is one example of the latter.
It’s not my intention to destroy the beliefs of pro-whites here, only to fine-tune them so that they correspond more closely with reality. We should be careful of statements that are absolute – generally speaking of course.
