Not that he needs any help from us. Apparently, white men, in particular old white men, need someone to speak for them in this “pussy” dominated America.
Eric Kirk, the great authority on racism, racist, white people and men posted this, Pat Buchanan speaks up for the white folk . He did not provide any link for reference to his “excerpt”.
Joe Blow doesn’t know Eric Kirk personally, but if we were to guess we’d have to say he is, among other unmentionable things, mixed race and female and never met a real man in his life. His bio says he’s an “attorney,” so I would guess that says something about his class strictures. Here’s a copy of his post as of Thursday, February 24, 2009 with our compliments:
He’s our champion. What can I say? After all these years of oppression, I can speak up as a white man. We need more programs. We need affirmative action! We need media by and for white men who can speak to our concerns and experiences. I feel so empowered!
Here’s an excerpt.
First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks.It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.
Second, no people anywhere have done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ‘ 60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.
We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude???
Where indeed? Ingrates.
And later in the column he explains why we white men find black people so scary. Black people need to think about that. But I would criticize him for focusing on the anecdotal issues at the expense of the systemic discrimination against white people, especially white men. We want equal representation in the Board rooms! We want equal representation in Congress! And I’m tired of security in the department stores not watching me closely when I walk in. I want attention too!
What an effeminate like Kirk doesn’t seem to understand is the heritage carried by American men and women that battled to settle this country and passed down through their living offspring until today. Their true nature is not something you want to expose by going down that ridicule road. He and his kind just might find that the Pandora Box opened in Iraq becomes child’s play in this country, once the restraints are loosened and people decide it’s time for payback. It’s not like it hasn’t happened before in this country, including right here in Humboldt County.
