Sid Garside believes that White Elites have adopted a death-sect mentality...and that they are draggin us all down with them.
Issues of identity and immigration have quickly established themselves as the premier lightning rods of political discourse in the 21st century. Anyone who even marginally asserts that European countries have a legitimate interest in maintaining their racial or ethnic identities is immediately hounded as a racist, Nazi, or any other unimaginative insult that can be mustered up. After even only a few minutes of conversation with opponents on such issues it should become readily apparent that those who care about identity are operating on an entirely different moral landscape than the social justice warriors who enjoy the privileges of holding beliefs aligned with the status quo. But what is it that drives the establishment’s determination of what views are acceptable or unacceptable when it comes to issues of identity and immigration? The answer to this question can seem elusive, but a greater understanding is gained by attempting to enter the moral matrix that guides the decision making of today’s self-described liberals and social justice warriors.
We live in a world where we are told simultaneously that race doesn’t exist and yet racism is real. We are told that blackness as an identity is beautiful, but that whiteness as an identity is somehow problematic. We are told on the one hand that race doesn’t matter, but on the other that we should continue to push for increased racial diversity at every level of our society. There are stifling contradictions and peculiarities at the heart of the ruling elite’s understanding of issues surrounding race and identity. Never have these contradictions and peculiarities been on a more pronounced display than when it comes to debates over immigration policies in Europe.
