America’s State Religion Marches On

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn

1,543 words

It’s fitting that Martin Luther King Day occurs so near to the hysteria surrounding the Capitol protests. The media described the protests as an attack on our sacred temple of democracy. Politicians and journalists insisted the Capitol, populated with lowlifes and reprobates, was our church. A police officer tried to persuade protesters to leave the Senate chamber because “this is like the sacredest place.” (The protesters did not listen.)

The Capitol owes its luster to its connection with the historic American nation. A visitor can wander amid the statues and portraits of the Founders and gaze up at the Apotheosis of Washington fresco under the Capitol’s dome. Millions of white Americans assign it a sacred character due to these symbols and figures. But the war on white heritage aims to strip America’s past from our institutions and replace them with figures like MLK. MLK now stands higher than the Founders — no one has to worry about him getting canceled. The warning of Senator John East, Sam Francis’s old boss, in the debate over MLK Day came to pass: we did “elevate him to the same level as the father of our country and above the many other Americans whose achievements approach Washington’s.”

MLK is the chief deity of America’s new state religion. Blacks are now our gods and the state is making this more explicit in the wake of the Capitol protests. Your humble writer covered this phenomenon last summer following the George Floyd riots. 

Blacks. . . are America’s gods. Their lives matter more than others, their feelings are a national concern, and their misdeeds go unspoken. They require respect at every turn and we must place them at the center of our history. They’re superior to whites in every regard — athletics, music, dancing, humor, and especially in virtue. Their women are even magic! Blacks have an entire month where we worship their invention of peanut butter and the super soaker.

The temple has only grown in stature since then. The regime wants to make it clear that state and religion are one and the same. To show your love for the new America, you must see blacks as our true founding fathers and accept them as superior beings. They created and uphold our democracy. Without them, America would perish from the Earth. This is the regime’s credo and failure to accept it could make you an enemy of the state. Just look at the poor Trump supporters facing years in jail for walking through the Capitol without permission. They desecrated the sacred temple — built by black people — in the belief that black votes shouldn’t count. Even though none of the protesters demonstrated in favor of white supremacy, they’re branded as white supremacists. This is just one of the many labels contemporary heretics earn. 

After George Floyd’s death, the more zealous black worship was mainly relegated to the private sphere. The state had not yet imposed on the people. With a new administration, the state no longer has any reason to hold back.

You can buy Greg Johnson’s Here’s the Thing here.

The first thing we may receive is the replacement of “The Star-Spangled Banner” with the “black national anthem” “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” This isn’t just the proposal of a starry-eyed columnist or backbench Democrat. Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, the third-most powerful Democrat in the House, proposed making the black national anthem our national hymn. It wouldn’t replace our current national anthem, but stand aside it. Some sports leagues already play it alongside “The Star-Spangled Banner,” even though most Americans had never known there was a black national anthem until Floyd’s death. Clyburn claims most Americans know and love the song, which is not true at all. He also believes that the song will bring national unity and heal our deep divisions. The majority whip’s argument assumes that only black worship can bring us together. Unlike “The Star-Spangled Banner,” “Lift Every Voice and Sing” doesn’t offer romantic nationalism. It insists we have a “dark past” we must overcome, a shared sentiment with the current American regime.

While Clyburn doesn’t want to replace the national anthem (yet), it could very well be done in the near future. “The Star-Spangled Banner” was written by a slave owner and is regularly called racist for celebrating the bad old America. The calls for it to be abolished could come quick and swift with just one public debate over the national anthem. “The Star-Spangled Banner” doesn’t uphold black worship, which is problematic for our regime. A new anthem would be called for to ensure the citizenry stays loyal to state ideology. Just imagine millions of Americans taking off their caps, putting them over their hearts, and belting “Lift Every Voice and Sing” before the big game. Nobody would be allowed to kneel for that.

We also may be treated to a public debate where we’re told that blacks are, in fact, superior beings. Joe Biden’s pick to lead the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, Kristen Clarke, previously argued for black supremacy. As a Harvard student in 1994, Clarke claimed there were inherent biological differences between the races and this explains the cultural differences between them. That’s pretty based, but she relied on totally quack black race science to make her point. She argued that “melanin endows Blacks with greater mental, physical and spiritual abilities — something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards.” Indeed, this can’t be measured by Eurocentric standards, or by any other standards besides black girl magic. 

These arguments would have doomed a nominee during the Bill Clinton and Barack Obama administrations. Past Democrats realized it was bad to associate themselves with radical black activism, even if they sympathized with the cause. That’s not the case anymore. You could see Clarke briefly apologize for those statements and we would never hear about it again. Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, a former DNC vice chair, never has to worry about people bringing up his past support for a black ethnostate. Black nationalism is considered uncouth, but it doesn’t get you canceled. We could also witness the bizarre spectacle of Clarke defending her statements to the applause of her party and the media. Whose place is it to claim that blacks are not superior to whites? Our whole culture preaches black superiority daily. Why shouldn’t Clarke own up to it? It’s not like any white lawmaker — whether Republican or Democrat — will challenge her thesis. Her confirmation may be the moment the regime officially declares blacks are mentally, physically, and spiritually superior to whites.

The system certainly sees blacks as more loyal servants than whites. Even though most of the police officers who “defended” the Capitol from Trump supporters were white, the media has pedestaled one lone black officer as the defender of the Capitol. Eugene Goodman became a national hero due to one viral image of him telling the Trump mob to stop. For this act, he was touted as the savior of democracy, the one guardian who didn’t leave his post in the face of a white supremacist mob. Unfortunately for this myth, a video exists of Goodman quickly fleeing from the mob after the viral image was snapped. So much for the stalwart guardian of democracy. He will receive the Congressional Gold Medal for his service, something that white officers who did far more won’t obtain. The myth of the black guardian is fundamental to our state religion. They can’t allow facts to get in the way. Goodman is now the bravest foot soldier of the regime, and no one can question that.

At the same time, white police officers and soldiers are seen as fundamentally disloyal. Black Capitol Hill police complain that their white colleagues are racist and the department needs far more diversity to protect our sacred temple of democracy from fantasy white nationalist threats. Our military subjected National Guardsmen deployed to DC to loyalty tests to make sure they don’t support Trump. Some lawmakers demand that only non-white soldiers be used for such a purpose because we can’t trust white males. They need to be drummed out and the military needs even more diversity to establish total loyalty.

And the Biden presidency hasn’t even started yet.

America’s elites want our national institutions respected. But the symbols and history used to earn that respect are too problematic now. They have to foist new symbols, myths, and history to secure legitimacy in the eyes of cultural elites and bamboozle the masses into acceptance. Black worship replaces the civic nationalism of the Cold War era. The Founding Fathers don’t matter anymore; what matters is blacks. They are the true Americans, the national divines, and the guardians of our democracy. We must kneel before them to show our loyalty.

    “The sacralization of blacks in our culture is both the opposite of what blacks deserve, and the principal expression of white Americans’ will to national and racial suicide.”

    -Lawrence Auster

    How long do blacks actually have, though? Will 120 million Latin Americans worship them with the same zeal as a few million wealthy Whites? When Biden amnesties everyone, we’ll be living in a new world. Brazil here we come.

      Just look at all Latino countries, do you see any longing for black diversity ? Even though we are the largest minority in the U.S. you wouldn’t know it when watching television and film. That is going to soon change. As an aside Puerto Ricans are not part of our culture, ok? There are a few other so-called Latino groups I could add but they’ll do for now.

    So, the Blacks will be the sacred cows and the Jews will be the secular rulers?

      In my eyes articles like this one seem to blur and confuse who really holds the power in America (and the entire West).

      Hint: It’s not the blacks.

        I’ve seen this a lot since the Passion of the Floyd last year. The focus has shifted back to blacks and away from Jews, where the focus matters. Consequently, the right loses when it focuses on blacks instead of Jewish power.

        And comments like this suggest that we have only one enemy.

        Jews are a problem (understatement), but they’re far from the only serious threat we face. (I’d rather my car break down in a Jewish neighborhood than a black one any day.😎)

          I firmly believe that the black problem will solve itself when the problem of Jewish political power is dealt with. We can tell Jewish power is a truth the opposition doesn’t want to discuss on a national scale, unlike the black problem, which they harp on about at great length. Blacks on the left are Jewish decoys, tools and sockpuppets, it’s pointless to waste our energies on fighting marionnettes, like a bull charging the matador’s red flag. We should stay laser-focused on what they do not want us to focus on, and bring the truth of Jewish power to light.

            The idea that 47,400,000 blacks’ animosity against us would vanish by simply getting rid of Jewish influence is naive.

              Most blacks will always fail to live up to white standards of behavior. They will always fail to enjoy white standards of wealth and culture. And they will always blame us rather than themselves.

              The Haitian revolution was not caused by Jewish influence.

    Sorry, but I don’t buy George Washington as God anymore than I buy “democracy” and “diversity” as the true faith. There is only one God and Old George wasn’t Him.

    I don’t know if I love Blacks or hate them!!!
    The Black guy that was moving my neighbour to her new abode asked me if that was a cat he saw jumping into the moving van. No one else saw it but before he closed the doors and drove off we all banged on the sides of the van and out jumped the cat. The following year there was a $520 vet bill and the year after that another $300 before my cat departed this life. As, I said, sometimes its hard to know what your feelings are.

      Exceptions are wonderful (and may even be the rule in some of our own respective experiences).

      But the general rule is, black-and-white cohabitation is far too abusive and one-sided a prospect for any white person to continue subjecting herself or loved ones to–the exceptions are just not worth the demonstrated risks.

    This is true, and blacks have grown in numbers and spread out. Consequence of sexual activity, immigration from Africa, and a system that feeds, shelters, and helps them at every turn. Even ten years ago I was noticing how many of them there were, but you could still make escapes here or there.

    No more. I cannot go anywhere, anywhere, without seeing at least one inserted in some role or another. I will have to abandon the cherished suburb of my youth, and the house my family put decades into paying for and maintaining.

    well BIDEN tyranny is here…and anyone that thinks that the GOP remains a viable option for conservative (whites) is delussional…the GOP IS PART OF THE LEFT…as for BLACKS…themselves must rescue their own HISTORY politics,ECONOMY, etc. and that must start by dignifying their own experience and examining wresting away their legacy away from JEWISHCONTROL…

    The new, diverse America can’t do anything great anymore. Just one example will suffice. The U.S., in the middle of the Vietnam War, with racial anarchy in cities caused by (so called) “Civil Rights” legislation from 1947 onwards was still able to land and retrieve two men from the moon in 1969. This tremendous feat was repeated several times, including transporting an electric vehicle to the surface of the moon. This feat has not been repeated since Dec. 1972 by any country.

    This tremendous accomplishment was achieved less than 66 years after the first manned flight. It was done with 1940’s – 1960’s technology by all White (mostly) men when the slide rule was still in common use by engineers. The Hidden Figures story, just like the movie Red Tails are just that, stories.

    Diverse America can not even launch people into space, they travel on Russian rockets. Trump’s bluster about “the first woman on the moon” was just that, bluster. The country is broke, filled with wogs and lacks the industrial base of the space age, just for starters. The politics of launching a White, male crew, the only people reliable enough to attempt a manned mission is impossible with diversity in charge.

    The colored people can neither conceive nor carry out great things anyway because they are midgets on the stage of history. Some of the Asians can imitate White accomplishments very well but it remains to be seen if China really lead the world after the U.S. is gone. The temptation to simply loot the world will be a temptation that may be irresistible to China because of their deeply ingrained culture of corruption. They certainly will have no use for the dead weight of diversity, though.

    On Gateway Pundit, this clip from loathesome CIA guy Brennan:

    I know… the members of the Biden team who have been nominated or have been appointed are now moving in laser light fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about what looks very similar to insurgency movements we’ve seen overseas. Where they germinate in different parts of the country and they gain strength, and it brings together an unholy alliance frequently of religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, even libertarians. And unfortunately, I think there has been this momentum that has been generated unfortunately I think of the demagogue of rhetoric of people that’s just departed government but also those who continue in the halls of Congress. So I really do think that the law enforcement, homeland security, intelligence and even the defense officials are doing everything possible to root out what seems to be a very, very serious, and insidious threat to our democracy and our republic.

    I’ll spare you the paragraphs of thoughts which this little gem provokes in me. I am sure you guys can come up with your own.

    There is an afternoon show on Fox called ‘The Five’. A while back I tuned in and the five of them were discussing their autosomal spit tests. Juan Williams explained he was (whatever) percentage ‘Hunter-Gatherer’. Hunter Gatherer says it all; It means there was NOTHING there. No agriculture, no domestic animals, no metals, no ceramic, no textiles, and needless to say no infrastructure. Countries or nations did not exist–only large matrilineally connected groups moving slowly and aimlessly through the jungle.
    Yes, the Jews did it all. The Colour Blind Society, Integration, destroying restrictive covenants, destroying right of free association, Boas, Ashley Montague, [email protected] Powah, [email protected] is Beautiful, affirmative action, Busing, 1619 Project, Muh White Guilt—-all kosher products.
    For the most part the majority of the old handkerchief head Uncle Toms, the Aunt Jemimas and the Talented 1/10 are all grateful for the riches the Jews have arranged, but the mass of the field coons are a seething mass of bitter resentment and hate. Read this interesting article for a description of how the Jews break a musical slave and bring him to ‘repentance’ (acknowledgement of Jewish supremacy).

    I’ve decided the best path is to completely ignore or show indifference to minority problems completely, and instead, find a charity or other ‘helping’ group that concentrates only in White poverty regions or enclaves — i.e., our sadly-labeled ‘white-trash’ and/or ‘trailer park’ types, and see what we can do to help them, without tripping any ‘equality’ laws. I’m also looking at ‘financial literacy’ programs being placed in all K-12 schools, which would give a leg-up to all reasonably intelligent younger students, White or non-White, to at least begin learning about financial responsibility, as well as ‘how to get rich’, hopefully. I am so tired of having to deal with only minority problems — I’m looking to use government money and grants to ‘include’ White kids as well. And finally, I am not going to talk about Whites vs. Blacks or Jews or Hispanics, etc., but rather as White vs. non-White because that is how I see the cleavage worldwide at this time.
