The Night the Whites Lost Clout in Georgia

Phil Eiger Newmann, Awed by Fraud, 2021

1,840 words

It’s Wednesday afternoon as I type this, and alleged Trump supporters — at least one of whom was toting a Confederate flag — have invaded the US Capitol building while Congress was certifying the electoral vote from 2020’s presidential election.

It’s a bittersweet image, seeing as how last night, the state of Georgia — once known as the “Heart of the Confederacy” — elected two Democrats to the US Senate, officially giving both parties 50 Senators each and the tiebreaking vote to Kamala Harris. This means that Joe Biden will have far more power than he did only a day ago.

Virginia was also known as the “Heart of the Confederacy.” Along with Georgia, Virginia was the only former Confederate state to vote for Biden in November — assuming anyone can trust vote tallies anymore.

Growing up on the outskirts of Philly, my earliest memory of the American South was when I was around five years old and my older brother took me to a trilogy of splatter films by exploitation director Herschell Gordon Lewis. The one I remember most vividly was Two Thousand Maniacs!, which told the tale of a mythical Southern town known as Pleasant Valley. A century after Yankee soldiers killed every last citizen of Pleasant Valley in the Civil War, its citizens resurrected themselves, captured six modern Yankees who were headed South on vacation, and brutally tortured every last one of them to death in vividly creative ways.

One of the most memorable murders involved tying a Yankee woman to a platform beneath “Teetering Rock” — a giant boulder that fell down and crushed her skull after one of the yokels finally hit a target with a baseball.

For decades now, demographics have been Georgia’s Teetering Rock. Statewide elections have been razor-thin, with the dividing line sharply drawn between multiculturally inclined Atlanta-area Democrats and the rest of the state, which is almost entirely comprised of rural white Republicans.

Last night, the boulder may have permanently teetered in favor of nonwhites.

Although I should be, I am not ashamed to announce that at age 12, I owned a copy of Vicki Lawrence’s song “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia,” a steamy Southern Gothic tale of infidelity and murder and vigilante justice in a state where you can’t “trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer.”

Back then — aided considerably by 1972’s film Deliverance — Georgia seemed like it was located in another country than Pennsylvania was, and in many crucial ways, it was.

Nowadays, the catastrophe of dimwitted urban planning known as Atlanta might as well be Chicago, only with warmer winters. It’s stuffed with angry blacks and compliant white enablers.

“The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” hit #1 on the Billboard charts in 1973. A year later, Atlanta would vote in its first black mayor — and it’s had nothing but black mayors since.

Before the white man’s arrival, what is now the State of Georgia was home to indigenous red tribes whose biggest accomplishment was equivalent to that of ants — they built dirt mounds. Prior to the 1830s, Georgia was home of most of the Cherokee who were relocated West during the Trail of Tears.

Around the year 1900, Georgia was almost half-black. It shed many of its black residents during the Great Migration northward. But today it’s still nearly one-third black. Percentage-wise, it’s the nation’s blackest state behind Alabama and Mississippi. In raw numbers, it has more black people than all states besides New York and Florida.

From Reconstruction all the way to 1964 — when it gave the nod to Barry Goldwater — Georgia voted for the Democratic presidential candidate. In 1968, it voted for independent candidate George Wallace along with four other states in the Deep South. With the exception of 1992, when it voted for Democratic Southern boy Bill Clinton, Georgia voted for the Republican candidate in every election from 1972 until it leaned ever so slightly for Biden in November — again, assuming one can trust the vote-counters.

Despite all the lies you hear about how Richard Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” marked the only time since the Civil War that national politicians made direct racial appeals to its constituents, the truth is that Nixon’s planners ceded the entire American South to George Wallace in 1968.

The truth of the matter is that both major American parties make direct appeals to blacks; Democrats are simply much better at the art than Republicans are. And as I’ve noted many times, there are no elected officials in America right now who even bother to mention white people unless it’s in disparaging terms.

I’ve been living in the Atlanta area for 13 years and have witnessed two mayoral races where a white candidate, Mary Norwood, received a plurality of votes during the first round. But since she was running against what seemed like a whole football team’s worth of black candidates each time, she failed to receive a majority and faced a runoff against the top-scoring black candidate. Because black Atlantans “vote black” just like blacks across the USA do, both times Norwood lost a one-on-one race to her black opponent in the runoff. As a result, since 2008 we’ve had two black mayors with the bliggety-black names of Kasim Reed and Keisha Lance-Bottoms.

You can buy Jim Goad’s Whiteness: The Original Sin here.

Although the sprawling ATL metro area occupies only about one-sixth of Georgia’s land, it is home to three-fifths of the state’s ten million residents. And now, like most states that are dominated by a single metropolis, Atlanta dictates the state’s politics and culture, regardless of how all the rural yahoos may feel about it.

Georgia was once the setting for The Dukes of Hazzard. Now it’s where all the Tyler Perry movies are made.

When I first arrived in Atlanta in 2007, I felt as if I’d accidentally stepped off a plane somewhere in Nigeria. Even though I’d lived in Philly, New York City, and LA, those places at least offered the occasional respite from the Endless Chocolate Ocean. But you can’t spit in Atlanta without hitting a black person.

Like those two razor-thin mayoral elections, Tuesday night’s Senate runoffs were forced by the fact that no one got a majority in November. And just like the mayoral elections, I felt that none of the candidates even pretended to represent my interests. And just like so many elections these days, the Democrats made everything aggressively racial, while the Republicans grimaced and tried to play nice.

Incumbent Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler are about as white as you’re allowed to be these days without facing jail time for laying the whiteness on too thick. Both are avid Trump supporters. And like all Republicans these days, they pretend as if white people don’t even exist. Mega-millionaire Loeffler is co-owner of Atlanta’s WNBA team and faced a PR nightmare when she openly spoke against Black Lives Matter.

Apparently blind to the fact that many of his supporters are poor, Perdue has bragged that he’s spent most of his career outsourcing jobs overseas. And when it comes to enabling ethnocentrism, I’m only aware of David Perdue belching his aggressive support of Zionism. This didn’t stop his opponent on Tuesday, the aggressively and impenitently Jewish Jon Ossoff, of calling Perdue “a virulent and unrepentant anti-Semite.” Ossoff also accused Kelly Loeffler of “campaigning with a Klansman,” which as far as I can tell means “posing for one photo with someone she had no idea was a former Klansman.”

Mind you, Ossoff served for five years as an aide to the mentally impaired black Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson, who thinks that islands can capsize if you send too many soldiers there and hears Klan dog whistles in his sleep.

Both Ossoff and his Democratic co-winner on Tuesday, the Reverend Raphael Warnock, realize that identity politics are welcome in modern America so long as white identity is demonized and all other forms of racial identitarianism are lionized as “social justice.”

Warnock, a dead ringer for JB Smoove of Curb Your Enthusiasm fame, is the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in downtown Atlanta. You may have heard of it — some fella who went by the name of Martin Luther King, Jr. was pastor there when he got shot dead in 1968. Warnock has never for a moment ceased making things racial. He has referred to Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s “God Damn America” speech as “Christian preaching at its best.” Warnock has also referred to black liberation theologist Dr. James Cone as his “mentor.”

Here are some compiled nuggets from Dr. Cone’s preachifyin’:

If God is white, kill God….There will be no peace in America until white people begin to hate their whiteness, asking from the depths of their being: ‘How can we become black?’…With the assurance that God is on our side, we can begin to make ready for the inevitable — the decisive encounter between white and black existence. White appeals to ‘wait and talk it over’ are irrelevant when children are dying and men and women are being tortured. We will not let whitey cool this one with his pious love ethic but will seek to enhance our hostility, bringing it to its full manifestation….We have reached our limit of tolerance, and if it means death with dignity or life with humiliation, we will choose the former. And if that is the choice, we will take some honkies with us.

Why, it all makes a transplanted Yankee such as me nostalgic for the likes of Lester Maddox, who was born with the perfect name for an angry white segregationist. Rather than serve black patrons at his Atlanta restaurant in the mid-1960s, Maddox shut the whole operation down — a move which destroyed his popularity with the Georgia electorate so thoroughly that they elected him the state’s governor only two years later. While Governor of Georgia, Maddox famously walked out on Dick Cavett and football player Jim Brown on a 1970 TV appearance, leading Jewish songwriter Randy Newman to mock him in his song “Rednecks.”

Perhaps the most extreme white would-be Georgia politician since the Civil Rights era was J.B. Stoner, who said Hitler was “too moderate,” called Jews “vipers of hell,” and said that “being a Jew [should] be a crime punishable by death.” Regarding blacks, Stoner said:

The nigger is not a human being. He is somewhere between the white man and the ape. We don’t believe in tolerance. We don’t believe in getting along with our enemy, and the nigger is our enemy.

Stoner was suspected in several terrorist bombings of black churches and synagogues and was convicted in 1980 of bombing the Bethel Baptist Church in Birmingham, AL in 1958. After serving a little over three years for the bombing, Stoner was released and continued to campaign for the US Senate as an N-bomb-dropping Dixiecrat.

Where have all the George Wallaces, Lester Maddoxes, and J. B. Stoners gone? Will such types ever come back?

Georgia’s perma-flip from red to blue and from white to black should prove to the naysayers that all politics are identity politics. Many white people are finally starting to realize this. But is there a single white politician in America who is willing to articulate it?

    Doesn’t seem likely any current politicians have the stones to step up for white people. Trying to say all lives matter or claiming color blindness won’t work. Every other color defiantly pushes for their own agenda whatever it might be. Whites truly are the most disenfranchised group as of today and elections are worthless from now on.

    Lester Maddox made Jim Brown, along with all the people who believe Whites should be forced at gunpoint to live around racial aliens, look like the psychotic tyrants they are. I only regret that Lester didn’t turn the law argument around on him and bring up slavery, that’s an incredibly weak framing, outside of that I can’t critique his performance. It’s telling that the only arguments I’ve seen against him is hand wringing about the freedom to choose who to associate with, saying access to Whites is a human right, point and sputter or in the case of Jim Brown, arguing that you must blindly follow laws, just because. They’re all bad and they all make the people arguing them look totally unhinged and evil, because they are. That interview is like a cask of Cognac, gets tastier and smoother to imbibe with every year that passes, guy is a hero.

    I’m pretty convinced we might be able to use some of the afrocentrism to our advantage. I spent 11 years in san diego, and i met a lot of homeless who were promised milk & honey upon arrival in California. Republicans had put them on a bus from back east to clean up their own towns. I wonder if we might convince just one red state to cut government housing or welfare programs, would it send the minorities and immigrants packing to a liberal state? Or if we can entice a liberal state to promise reparations upon arrival, that might be another solution, like a voluntary trail of tears 2.0. It would be a great phase 1 setup for secession or ensuing separation conflict. Otherwise the dems will just use government housing to send minorities and immigrants into every conservative/white neighborhood in america until nothing’s left.

      That’s interesting find a state that’s too far gone to offer reparations. Could trigger what’s needed.

    If there is one thing Conservate Inc. and the Republican Establishment do well, it is running interfetence for the Democrats. They spend more time fighting against their constituents than the opposition party. They hate the Whites who took a stroll through the Capitol building more than the blacks who terrorize White people every chance they get. With “friends” like this, who needs enemies.

    Ashli Babbitt was a veteran, serving 14 years in the US Air Force
    She was there because she had spent her life playing by the rules and defending those rules.
    and get shot by Vice President Pence’s security detail

    White people didn’t lost Georgia
    White people don’t have an ally in Washington DC
    The GOP lost Georgia elections due to demographics and their treachery and sell out their people can’t go on

    Voting only legitimate enemy’s plan to eradicate white people
    Georgia election might be greatest victory to the white people
    Voting to pimp, whore, grifter, the Benedict Arnold of white race must be stopped

    Negroes and other colored folk couldn’t run a two car funeral procession if their lives depended upon it. They are absolutely incompetent and everyone knows this, especially other Negroes. Tom Wolfe in his Bonfire of the Vanities has a great scene where a black lawyer is trying to rustle up business from the blacks and browns locked up in jail. The blacks and browns locked up tell him to his face that they want a White lawyer, not him.

    That is a slice of real life, not fiction.

    Under Slow Joe and President Camel Toe Harris the colored people are going to be put in charge of everything. This is going to lead to failure of the dollar (amongst other things) through inflation ca. 1979 and anarchy in diverse parts of the country. Look for system failures also such as utilities and just-in-time deliveries that will affect everyone. BLM will probably get to White, inner ring suburbs this Spring to enrich White liberals although they tend to be afraid of more rural areas with armed up White people.

    BLM did threaten to march from Ferguson, Mo. to rural areas about 15 miles away in 2014 after the Gentle Giant was killed but wisely thought better of that plan. BLM’s argument was why burn down where we (colored) people live, why not burn out Whitey? After thinking about the reception they would certainly get in rural, White, Mo. when they drove there to screw with people it didn’t seem like such a good idea, and it wasn’t.

    For those who haven’t left diverse areas yet flee now, time is short. The coloreds are going to get frisky again in the Spring and vent their spleen on White people again only this time President Camel Toe will “have their back” as they say in the ghetto. Places like Buckhead in Atlanta won’t be safe and places like SoCal will be disaster areas, too. Rural, White areas with cold winters will be relatively safe(r) in the future, American cities will be left to the stone age primitives.

      social engineering is not going to stop at an all ready diversified suburb
      40% of South Carolina’s rural population is African American.
      eradication and total enslavement of white people is the end goal

      The problem is many white women think if they join the anti-white movement, they will be charge of everything
      What women don’t know about those Jewish and African coalitions hides their motive such as don’t give any actual power to the their future sex slave
      In the job market, white women are equally treated as white men, a despised minority
      Because If they give economic freedom to the white women then they can’t sexually exploit the white women

      Too many white men and women are brainwashed, and for that reason the existence of white people itself is becoming dangerous

      {Tom Wolfe in his Bonfire of the Vanities has a great scene where a black lawyer is trying to rustle up business from the blacks and browns locked up in jail. The blacks and browns locked up tell him to his face that they want a White lawyer, not him.}

      I recall that scene as the Negro saying, “I want a fucking Jew.” But I read Bonfire in I think 1988, so I could be wrong.

      Anyway, face it, whites are jerks. Most whites are losers, and now the entire world knows it. White Identitarians are literally the last worthy whites (maybe the only worthwhile humans at all, certainly all I or you should care about). White nationalists are on our own, the last remnant of a formerly great now dying race. That is a terrible moral responsibility.

      I wonder: are whites today more ethical than in the past (hence the precious concern for policing our own “racism”), or just more cowardly? Or, a third option, more morally confused than ever? I opt for one part confused, one part cowardly, and one part overly bourgeois-comfortable (perhaps also a fourth part is too atheist – too disbelieving in the Christian beliefs that gave life meaning and impelled men to noble deeds, secure in the hope of their heavenly deserts).

      One thing is certain: from the foundational conservative concern – preserving good moral, racial and civic order – modern America is a total failure. The sooner large numbers of whites psychologically then eventually physically divorce themselves from any allegiance to this racially and culturally dead, and physically dying country, the better. Maybe there will be some heavy redpilling coming out of this electoral catastrophe. Even though I hold Trump in part responsible for this outcome, the #StoptheSteal belief and ensuing alienation of hordes of white/Middle American Trumpists from the Occupationist Regime must be accounted a very good thing. Some patriots, including here at CC, see only blackpilling in these results, but I see real opportunity. What white patriots must do now is work to redpill any disillusioned Trumpists we know, to persuade them not just of the now-exposed myth of “free and fair elections”, but that all propaganda of the regime is false. Especially the Big Lie, everything said about race.

      Always try to turn a problem into an opportunity. The election was stolen. The opportunity for mass and rapid redpilling has accordingly arisen. Good luck!

    “ Georgia went from being a 72% white state in 1990 to barely above 50% white in 2020. The racial change in the electorate and its consequences are obvious to those brave enough to engage in pattern recognition:

    Brian Robinson, a longtime Republican strategist, said he’s seen Democratic gains coming for a decade in Georgia, if for no other reason than the state’s changing demographics.

    “The white percentage of the electorate is now 53%. In the Sonny Perdue years, it was 70 plus percent,” he said of the two-term governor, who served in the 2000s. “I mean, that’s that is mind boggling demographic change in a very short period of time.”

    I like a present meme: ‘Things aren’t getting worse, only more clear.’

    A high school friend of mine lives in Marietta, and she’s very depressed. She said blacks used to be SO NICE, but things have changed. Also, she’s hiding in her house from covid, as so many of my generation are (I’m 68). An effect of the plague has been terrifying older people.
    As for Georgia, in Civil War Two, Tom Chittum said, in regards to seeking white enclaves, avoid Georgia. He pointed out that aside from the area north of Forsyth and Cherokee counties in north Georgia, and a southern zone from Toombs to Camden counties, the state would be overrun with blacks. Individual white counties, like Lee or Pike, will be swamped.
    Interestingly, the racial shooting in Brunswick where the ‘innocent black youth was gunned down while jogging’, was in a black area Chittum warned would be suicide for whites to stay in.
    For the record, he said Civil War Two would start in 2020, in L.A.
    In a recent interview on Weimerika, Chuttum said to be safe, you need to 1. get out of cities 2. find an area that has a cold climate and has whites 3. is run by a red state governor (blue state governors would turn over state armories to Antifa or BLM in a heartbeat) 4. Has an elected sheriff.
    He said the south is a terrible place to be; the ethnic strife will be murderous.

    In The City in Mind, James howard Kunstler gave an informative history of the growth of Atlanta, going from a railroad crossways to mega traffic hell cum black population dump.

    I also had a copy of The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia…my Vicki Lawrence crush era.

    What you see happening is the slow Ethnogenesis of a series of new whote nations in the ruins of an evil empire.

    Birthpangs of a new North America in the wreck of the USA. It happened after Rome too.

    The song you’ve on riffed for the title of this piece, is a latter-day example of the traditional murder ballad of England, Scotland, Germany, and Scandinavia. Here is magnificent example of the genre, which is over a hundred years old. It is played by the Tony Rice Quartet, and sung by Peter Rowan who also plays Mandolin, as does Sharon Gilchrist. Bryn Davies plays Stand Up Bass.

    Mr Rice of course was the virtuoso guitarist from Virginia who died this Christmas Day. RIP.
