Two Generations of Traitors

1,417 words

Utah Senator Mitt Romney marched with Black Lives Matter protesters in Washington, D.C. over the weekend, becoming the first national Republican to explicitly endorse the racial grievance movement.

“We need a voice against racism. We need many voices against racism and against brutality,” he told reporters. “We need to stand up and say black lives matter.”

To further underscore his point, Romney tweeted out “Black Lives Matter.”

Romney’s march photo-op was incredibly goofy. Here was this model WASP financier walking down the street surrounded by Left-wing miscreants. They sang the horrid tunes of the sixties Civil Rights Movement as they walked with Willard Mitt Romney down downtown DC.

Romney’s siding with racial agitators who want reparations and police abolishment keeps with his family legacy. His father, George Romney, marched with civil rights protesters when he was Michigan governor in the sixties. Romney the Younger sees this as a point of pride. In truth, it’s a disgrace, and shows how deeply committed the Romney family is to white dispossession.

George Romney was a standard moderate Republican of his day. He declared “discrimination” the biggest problem facing America when he became governor in 1963. He eagerly championed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and refused to support Barry Goldwater, the Republican presidential nominee that year, because of the conservative’s opposition towards it.

Mitt brought up his father last weekend to celebrate the elder Romney’s response to the 1967 Detroit riots. According to the younger Romney, his father knew that “force” alone would not stop the riots; the government must appease the black rioters with more gibs. He felt he honored his father’s legacy by siding with BLM.

This was an unsubtle subtweet of President Trump and his demand to use force against the current race rioters. However, the elder Romney begged for federal troops during the Detroit riots and watched helplessly as Michigan’s largest city burned. LBJ, not Romney, was the reason the troops were delayed. LBJ worried about the optics of sending in troops straight from Vietnam against black marauders. It would signal the failure of his Great Society program and possibly help a future presidential rival in Romney.

The riots helped usher in a black takeover of Detroit and the city has been a shithole ever since. No good came out of it and no leader performed well in the face of the chaos. Gov. Romney later blamed whites for the riots. Romney’s presidential aspiration died against Richard Nixon, the man who promised to restore law and order.

Romney’s worst acts were to come as Nixon’s Housing and Urban Development secretary. This agency exists solely to give handouts to non-whites and Romney felt empowered to advance its insidious cause. The former Michigan governor interpreted the Fair Housing Act of 1968 as a mandate to forcefully integrate white suburbs. He denied federal money to cities that resisted his plans to build projects in white neighborhoods. The money denied included grants for basic needs such as highway construction and sewer repair. He thought the suburbs were a “white noose” around black communities.

Black interests mattered far more to Romney than white interests.

Romney deliberately targeted Warren, Michigan, a suburb that attracted white refugees from Detroit. He wanted to impose Detroit’s undertow on those who fled the riots and crime. As governor, he had previously sent state police to the town to protect one interracial couple from harassment.

Nixon opposed Romney’s forced integration program and overrode most of his deputy’s decisions. Disgruntled at his failure to impose multiracialism on the suburbs, Romney resigned from the administration in 1972.

His racial advocacy put him at odds with the Mormon establishment. Like his son, Romney was a devout member of the Church of the Latter-Day Saints. At that time, the Church still preached its hilariously white supremacist theology that black skin color marked them as disfavored by God. The LDS was one of the few churches to not fawn over civil rights. Its leaders expressed their concern to Romney, who ignored their advice to stay away from black advocacy.

This was a man who was so committed to multiracialism that he went against his own church, party, and core constituents to advance it. That’s serious dedication to white dispossession.

Romney’s zeal for punishing white America was shared by his fellow liberal Republicans. Nelson Rockefeller, John Lindsay, and John Anderson were all avid civil rights champions who couldn’t stomach the GOP’s appeals to the South. One of the only good things about Ronald Reagan was his crushing of this faction in the 1980s. Anderson ran a kind of NeverReagan independent campaign against the future president in 1980.

Modern-day Conservative Inc. hagiography insists Reagan defeated the moderates by exposing their big government tendencies. In reality, they were outmaneuvered on racial issues. Reagan campaigned and won on euphemisms for scaling back the civil rights regimes. Of course, as Chris Caldwell points out in The Age of Entitlement, Reagan didn’t reverse the civil rights regime. But the popularity of his dog whistles made it uncomfortable for open supporters of busing and forced integration to remain within the GOP.

Romney the Younger’s BLM march signals a new era may be upon Republicans. Romney will likely join other Republican senators in calling for major reforms of the police departments. The Utah senator and failed presidential candidate probably won’t call for defunding the police, but he might advocate for the end of qualified immunity and the suppression of police union power. Both ideas would make police even weaker to enforce the law. Without qualified immunity, police could be sued for everything and would fear using force against dangerous criminals. Police unions keep liberal dictates and shrieking at bay; without their support, cops would be powerless to resist progressive meddling.

Cops are, of course, servants of the state and do not merit unqualified idolization. They would happily arrest dissident Right-wingers if ordered to do so. That still doesn’t negate the fact that they operate as the thin blue line between white America and black criminality. Life would be far worse for white Americans if police were defunded or neutered. The same happened for whites under the boot of the civil rights regime championed by George Romney.

The Romneys probably had no idea about the consequences of their actions. They just think they were doing what’s “morally right.” They don’t think their grandkids will be the ones beaten by their black peers at schools, they don’t envision their houses suffering home invasions from newly empowered POC, and they don’t see their wealth being expropriated for reparations. They just all see these efforts as moving us closer to the multiracial utopia where everyone can live comfy suburban existences.

Both Romneys desired approval from the moral guardians of American society. They wanted to be liked by the press and assured they’re not racist by civil rights leaders. Many whites, particularly white elites, are like them. They want to gain respect, not lose it. They politely acquiesce to the demands of radical agitators in the hope that makes them a “good person.”

A “good” white person is ultimately a harmless one. He will be a good boy and listen and do what he’s told. You don’t have to worry about him complaining about busing, non-white crime, or mass immigration. He knows good people support those causes and he’s too busy making money to notice the shithole around him.

Mitt fantasizes about an America that can overcome its divisions and come together to cut the deficit. We just need to restore civility and decency to reach the promised land.

Unfortunately for Mitt, there will be no civility or decency in the America he’s helping to build. Civility is impossible in a system founded on racial resentment and one cannot be equal to those you kneel before. The new country will be worse for all whites, even wealthy white elites like the Romneys who can seclude themselves from most of its ill effects.

And it will be brought about by deluded whites who just wanted to be “good people.”

    Romney, I believe, is just two generations from polygamy. I remember with nostalgia the traditional view of negroes maintained by the Saints

    Traitors against our people are the lowest of the low. Despicable, vile trash who (believe it) we are taking very careful accounting of. For the record, even were a gun put to my head I will NEVER kneel before my racial inferiors and any of our people who even consider doing so should be viewed with nothing but disgust and contempt.

      I have vastly more respect for rioting blacks than for the whites siding with them. At least the former group is taking its own side, even if it is in a savage way. The latter represents a complete inversion of healthy values.

        So true. Blacks will be blacks. The problem with white people is those white people that are not racially aware. It’s disgusting to see any person advocate against or betray their own race. That’s why miscegenation is actually a good thing – because it weeds out from the gene pool those that are oblivious to racial reality.

        Taking their own side? But they can’t bear to be without us. And they serve other masters in any case.

    I never knew, but I should’ve. Although I hate to admit it now, I supported Mitt in 2012, thinking that perhaps he was the fulfillment of the Mormon prophesy that one of ours would save the day when the Constitution hung by a thread. If that does come to pass, it won’t be by that turkey! Because he is standing in solidarity with the rioters, I will never give him another scintilla of support. May he find his final abode in Outer Darkness!

    I don’t care about his cucking. What I want to know is if he’s a criminal, with Bain Capital. Are there any good authoritative articles that discuss the possible crimes related to Bain Capital and Romney? He and his family’s carpetbagging is noxious too. Couldn’t they just stay in the Utah beehive? I respect Mormons when they live Intermountain. Seeing their missionaries in urban Northeast ghettos is bizarre and revolting. Or have they stopped doing that? Haven’t seen them in the last few years in my ghetto.

    Mitt Romney should be ashamed of himself but it seems history is doomed to be cyclical. One wonders how Senators felt towards the end of the Roman Empire (to say nothing of the end of the Republic), when mobs of angry iconoclasts, led by the pastoral media manipulators of their day, were smashing everything that reminded them of the sinful before-times. Some of them were probably very much like the Romneys in welcoming the new creed of our lord George Floyd, if only to be allowed to keep the family palace.

    Romney is like John McCain, in that he is a narcissist whose main objective is positive media coverage, which is the worst possible trait for a Republican politician in post 1964 America.

      Of course, these sorts of people only seek to advance themselves. They would equally be goose stepping next to Hitler if the context were Germany in the 1930s. Tom Sunic often remarks how the most passionate com interns in Yugoslavia before the fall of the soviets became the most ardent core of the capitalist parties after the break up.

    Ann Coulter needs to start a National Party. Immigration reform. Immigration moratorium. Etc.

    If George Romney had really wanted to address the cause from which those riots sprang, instead of pushing for more gibs for blacks, he would’ve championed repatriating them back to Africa.

    Disgusting cucoldry. If there is such a place as purgatory I will spend eons there, because I voted for this mofo as well as Bush II, and Juan McCain.

    We need a full, foot-noted scholarly book on White Dispossession, because most Whites have never heard of such a thing. If it is already in print somewhere (and not yet banned), let me know, and I stand corrected.

    I, too was surprised to see Mormon ‘missionaries’ in minority neighborhoods in Los Angeles, in the mid-90’s, and also on the island of Trinidad in 2000 when I visited on a cruise. I always thought they cared only for their ‘own’, and all lived together untouched in Salt Lake City and environs, and grew their own food which they then stockpiled. I thought they had a perfect set-up, and even tried to read their “Book of Mormon”, which was as dense as Marx or the Koran. But their original set-up is definitely something we can model. I’d even include polygamy, since one man who is financially secure could easily support two women, and numerous kids if we could get them on board with the idea. Well, just some thoughts. I was really upset to learn how much the two Romneys were involved with trying to make nice with the biggest troublemakers in the country, and are still doing so. I’m ready to take the first Spacex flight to Planet X to get away from this mess that I’ve been observing for 60 years of my life, with no let-up in sight.

    There was a lot that was still unknown in 1968. That does not excuse George Romney’s pandering, but it does mitigate it a bit. We’ve learned a lot about blacks and about the Left in the past fifty years. There is no excuse for Mitt Romney. He’s simply anti-white and anti-American.
