I have been meaning to post something about “Degenerate Moderns” by E. Michael Jones, which posits that modern culture exists largely to justify sexual license. But I saw something today that touches on that, because his first example was the gay British KGB spies of Oxford. Jones says their homosexuality made them hate their own country.
I saw something today that reminded me of this; a white guy in Austin gets shaken down by the cops while with his black granddaughter. The key clue is early in the article. He doesn’t say, but the easily-winded female cop who stops them the first time is almost certainly a fat lesbian. You don’t see fat male cops or firemen, but I have seen fat, old lesbian police officers and firefighters in my town. Why would a city hire somebody obviously not physically qualified for a job like this?
The obvious answer is “diversity” or “affirmative action”, or punishing working-class white men and rewarding political supporters. But as usual there’s more to it.
Gays do not appear to be like blacks. Blacks, while engaging in a lot of homosexual behavior, don’t accept effeminate behavior, or open homosexuality. Gays, whether they have money or not, like to model upper-class behavior, and probably find black culture uncouth, though they won’t say it. But, both gays and blacks hate the society they live in. Blacks can never really succeed or fit in. Gays will never be more than tolerated by most people, even those who claim to not only accept but love them.
As I have written before, the elite sees blacks and gays as servants, and both groups more or less accept this status. Being a servant is a bit galling in a theoretically egalitarian society, but along with the groveling servility comes protection and mean kind of status- better to be a house negro than a field negro.
But just as the master looks out for his servant, the servant looks out for his master. As an individual affirmative action hire or as a group of political actors, blacks and gays act as a combination of spies and enforcers. Affirmative action hires don’t simply enjoy the fruits of political loyalty, they also watch non-elite whites for politically deviant behavior.
Libertarian-inclined people are more tolerant of gays than blacks. Blacks engage in a lot of aggressive anti-social behavior, while gays don’t. The desire to let other people pursue happiness as they see it is a strong one- it starts the Declaration of Independence. And gays always frame their behavior and political goals in libertarian terms- that they only want to do what other people can do.
But it’s clear gays are not the friends of freedom in any way. Jones is right, they have an instinctive hatred of conventional society. The excuse of discrimination doesn’t hold up- among the upper class of England, homosexuality was a normal part of life, encouraged by putting boys in boarding schools away from their families and girls. And today when homosexuality is more tolerated and accepted than ever, gays devotion to leftism and hostility towards traditional life is stronger than ever.
I’m still a libertarian on some level. I don’t want to tell anybody what they can or can’t do that is only their own business, aside from externalities like the public cost of STDs- or contraception. But if your personal makeup gives you the untameable desire to control the rest of society, your freedom is my slavery.
