Deism Versus Phony White Guilt Cult
Deism needs to turn away from mindless Christian bashing to confronting modern tyranny with its irrational religious underpinnings and anti-liberty social and political agendas. White guilt is irrational and Deism rejects irrationalism. Deism rejects any form of racism and racial double standards are racism.
The phony "white guilt" of these multitudes of white non-liberal Liberals**, most of them affluent and privileged, has become both an identity and a religion or religious crusade. The religious element is a New Age remapping of Christianity and deification of Nature, while it's social elements are Marxist accept class struggle has morphed into racial struggle. They pile on false guilt to gain power based on self-proclaimed "moral" authority.
Under Christianity mankind was damned by "sin" of Adam thus the only salvation was to submit to "Christ" and His self-appointed Holy men in the Church. We know the tyranny and murder that followed. "Christian" would also become a collective identity divorced from reason or personal conduct in those early times. Create an incurable sickness as an excuse for evil, then offer the only path to a cure.*
Liberalism is an identity in the same way Christianity once was. Today's "sin" is split between white guilt and ecological heresy and defilement. Only whites are guilty for being white, while non-whites can't be guilty of anything - damnation based on biology alone - that's racism for anyone else. Another "sin" is the desecration and violation of Nature, where Nature-Earth has become a god/goddess/divine and the "sin" of technology, higher living standards, etc. are blot on the Holy Grail of holy Gaia, most notably caused by capitalism. It's mythological religious nonsense.
On the first issue whites have nothing to feel guilty about because everyone else did the same thing - it's sadly human nature. Slavery was practiced widely in Islam and Black Africa that enslaved and sold Blacks into slavery to begin with. Free Blacks and even some Cherokee held Black slaves while 95% of the Southern white population didn't. Go argue with Louis Gates Obama's buddy. It was white nations starting with Britain that ended slavery that survived in the Muslim and African world (and still employed there in places today) into the 1960s.
To quote Clifford D. May,
The fact that slavery was once a thriving institution in the United States continues to be an open wound. Slavery was a thriving institution in Saudi Arabia as well, but that's not seen as a stain on the nation's honor. America abolished slavery in the 1860s. Saudi Arabia did the same — in the 1960s...
Ref. No more apologies for the West Washington Times 2/28/2017. The Saudis treat their Shia minority like dirt including facing execution (by beheading) for questioning the Saudi government. Whites were also held as slaves in America at one time and over 2 millions Europeans were enslaved by Turkish and African Muslims - where is the outrage? Turkey was once the greatest imperial power in the world under the Ottomans.
Reason says facts and empirical proof overrule feelings - one doesn't get to invent their own facts nor do they get to vote on them. The phony outrage covers a seething hatred of those whites that just refuse to bend to their crypto-Marxist poison.
Class warfare doesn't work, racial warfare they hope will.
Thus they preach morality like any religion to escape a non-existent "sin" they manufactured. Racist Progressive Woodrow Wilson segregated the military. It was racist Progressive Democrats such as FDR that sent Japanese Americans to intern camps, but that doesn't mean a white kid in Appalachia born in 1957 bears any guilt for that. That's as absurd as blaming Japanese Americans for the racism and mass atrocities of Imperial Japan in WW2. Or blaming German teenagers for the Holocaust or Turkish teenagers for the Armenian genocide. None are guilty of any of this because they weren't there.
It isn't just racial warfare. This non-liberal Liberal hatred of Christianity, the family, and other Christian based institutions is clear from their ancestral founders:
"The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes, and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital." Karl Marx, Das Capital
Marx was a complete immoral scumbag. He never worked a job and leached off his relatives and friends. He impregnated the baby sitter and popped a child he refused to support. He abused his family all the while railing against religion and the traditional family.
Traditional Deism placed a high value on traditional morality and individual liberty, something modern non-liberal Liberals reject. To further quote their prophets:
"With the transfer of the means of production into common ownership, the single family ceases to be the economic unit of society. Private housekeeping is transformed into a social industry. The care and education of the children becomes a public affair; society looks after all children alike, whether they are legitimate or not. This removes all the anxiety about the 'consequences' ... Will not that suffice to bring about the gradual growth of unconstrained sexual intercourse ...?" Frederic Engels
Thus non-liberal Liberals preach a type of secular religion attempting to use guilt to intimidate and control their victims, while savaging the very things that hold society together. Frustrated that the real world doesn't operate as their leftist professors predicted in college, they seemingly project their phony guilt, self-loathing, and anger is projected onto others, taking their anger out on them.
They hate traditional family, religion, fellow whites, etc. because underneath they are still Marxist in thinking and just can't sell it to thinking people. They've departed from Marx having replaced class struggle with racial struggle producing outright self-hating racism.
So we have a religious like cult built on guilt that projects hate at it imagined enemies, but what about its core theology or spiritual aspects? Most non-liberal Liberals are atheist or agnostic at best, where is their spiritual/religious component? Here is where they depart once again from classical Marxism.
Al Gore stated the creed of many in this cult with the following:
"As it happens, the idea of social justice is inextricably linked in the Scriptures with ecology."
Here we have the Liberal religious creed that fuses socialism/Marxism (social justice) with earth centered religion and other forms of New Age and gnostic-esoteric nonsense, expressed though ecology and environmentalism as an anti-capitalist' screed. Repent from climate change (caused by capitalism) or burn in a literal earthly hell - based science by feelings devoid of facts. Most of the time when questioned they go into tirades against capitalism when they are not calling one a racist or a climate "denier", a religious term.
Gore also illustrates in his book Earth in the Balance I took the quote from that like all tyrannical religions all aspects of life, morality, commerce, politics, education etc. are melded into a single controlling entity - no dissent allowed and heretics will face retaliation. No separation of religion and state allowed. It's Marxism lite with a religious overcoat and this ecology is pure pantheist' New Age garbage.
That is what they really promote and using racial discord and racial hatred is a way to get power to impose this cult. They care nothing about poor people or minorities and kill millions of poor third-world "people of color" by refusing them the energy and technology in the name of saving the Holy Earth.
This cult must have a Devil and his worldly minions to smite and organize against. That target is those white Americans and American culture in total that rejects their asinine cult, along with any heretics that dare question their absurd dogma. We know from history how moral authority underwritten by religious irrationalism an emotion often turns out.
Some have even advocated the genocide of "whiteness". Questioning the "sin" of climate change one is called a "denier" and some are advocating criminal prosecutions. New York and other "liberal" states have already launched a real legal inquisition on "deniers". This is under Congressional investigation as these zealots have refused to disclose communications with environmental activist groups.
A case in point:
Ask Lennart Bengtsson. In 2014, this well-respected Swedish meteorologist working in the United Kingdom joined a group called the Global Warming Policy Foundation, which questions some of the climate change community's findings. Mr. Bengtsson did so simply because he was concerned that some of the computer-model predictions didn't match up with actual scientific observations over time.
Big mistake. "Within a matter of days, he found himself in deep trouble...As happened to other scientists who question any aspect of the global-warming 'consensus,' Bengtsson was hounded by colleagues to the point that he felt forced to resign from the think tank." Mr. Bengtsson cited concerns for his "health and safety," saying the pressure made “normal work” virtually impossible, and warned: “It is a situation that reminds me about the time of McCarthy."
And these computer models haven't matched up with the real world for decades. Ref. Liberal in name only Leftists have become the authoritarians they used to condemn. By Ed Feulner May 9, 2016 Washington Times.
Shelby Steele doesn't state the why and wallows in this mythical white guilt, but focuses on their method of gaining power through it. They are power hungry fanatics intent on using government force to promote their creed. Moral authority becomes political authority or simply feeling superior to others. To quote Mr. Steele:
White guilt is a mock guilt, a pretense of real guilt, a shallow etiquette of empathy, pity and regret.
It is also the heart and soul of contemporary liberalism. This liberalism is the politics given to us by white guilt, and it shares white guilt's central corruption. It is not real liberalism, in the classic sense. It is a mock liberalism. Freedom is not its raison d'etre; moral authority is...
From that followed today's markers of white guilt - political correctness, identity politics, environmental orthodoxy, the diversity cult and so on.
This was the circumstance in which innocence of America's bigotries and dissociation from the American past became a currency of hardcore political power.
Today's liberalism is an anachronism. It has no understanding, really, of what poverty is and how it has to be overcome. It has no grip whatever on what American exceptionalism is and what it means at home and especially abroad...
This liberalism came into being not as an ideology but as an identity...Without an ugly America to loathe, there is no automatic esteem to receive. Thus liberalism's unrelenting current of anti-Americanism... Liberalism is exhausted because it has become a corruption.
Ref. The Exhaustion of American Liberalism - White guilt gave us a mock politics based on the pretense of moral authority. WSJ March 5, 2017 by Shelby Steele
*This does not apply to individual Christians many are fine people that do live a Christian life. It's aimed at the political institution of the organized Church that often becomes more focused on power than personal salvation of it's adherents. Think of this asinine Pope Francis out preaching liberation theology and Leftism as opposed to salvation through Jesus Christ.
** A non-liberal Liberal are liberal in name only and are hostile to the ideals of classical liberalism - it's an identity not a system of beliefs. They're more like soft fascists without a nationalist element combined with New Age style spiritualism. (Fascism is a leftist secular philosophy.)
This is the same as what Dennis Prager calls non-Jewish Jews that are hostile to Judaism itself and often anti-Israel as well. Its an identity no different in outlook than non-liberal Liberalism except a racial Jewish identity enables them to scream anti-Semitism to escape criticism of their destructive politics they claim in the name of Judaism.
Too many play the role of professional victims. To quote the great Meir Kahane, "How the Jewish leadership of our times, and Jews in general have made the Holocaust a religion unto itself, and the raison d'etre of Jewishness!" See The Holocaust by Kahane.
