Protests of a kind much more civilized than those seen in Ferguson, Missouri took place this past week at a school district in Arvada, Colorado. The protesting students, almost all of whom are White, were voicing their displeasure at an attempt by the conservative-controlled school board to indoctrinate them in the wonders of “the free market, patriotism, citizenship,” and other anti-white, cultureless platitudes. Here’s how the Associated Press reported it:
“The school board proposal that triggered the walkouts in Jefferson County calls for instructional materials that present positive aspects of the nation and its heritage. It would establish a committee to regularly review texts and course plans, starting with Advanced Placement history, to make sure materials ‘promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free-market system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights’ and don’t ‘encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law.'”
Based on the signs they were carrying, a quote a 17 year old girl gave, and the slogan of the protests –“It’s our history; don’t make it a mystery” – these White students are against the proposal because, broadly speaking, it keeps them in the dark. No doubt this proposal, if enacted, would ignore the parts of American history that conservatives don’t like – such as the struggle between labor and business or the huge popularity of FDR’s government programs.
Just to be clear, these students are not protesting the proposal based on any traditionalist, dissident right perspective. Many of them don’t seem to have given much thought to concepts like the free market, patriotism, or citizenship, and insofar as they have, they only oppose them because those ideas represent the old egalitarian ideology as opposed to the new one.
Having said all that, Whites anywhere who care about their race cannot help but delight at the sight of their own student’s loudly rejecting ideas that are inherently destructive of their livelihood, and more importantly, of who they are. By opposing an agenda which would indoctrinate them with Tea Party propaganda about capitalism and American patriotism, they are rejecting the mind poison that the deracinated ideas of conservatism would infect them with.
Contrary to the assertion of school board member Julie Williams, these White students must absolutely be taught that America is a bad place. They must be taught that although America stands for equality, liberty, individual rights, etc., it has consistently failed to live up to its promise of equality for all.
This type of education is good for White students because it will either trigger their self-defense mechanisms and cause them to desire a new nation in which their race isn’t made out to be a pack of monsters, or they will give in to the self-hatred and self-loathing that such education is designed to instill, in which case natural selection is just doing its thing. Either way, the end result can only advance the cause of those of us who care about White racial identity.
