The Art of Shame

Black nationalist manque Ta-Nehisi Coates has banned me again. Why it takes me a whole three minutes to get a new email address and Disqus account!

The question was did Zimmerman use a “racial slur” (more on this important term later) in the 911 call. The post contains a picture of Zimmerman. My posted answer was:

Clearly yes.

Now that we have a picture of him, can we stop calling him white? /end comment

Coates has been quite reticent on this one. I assume he sees this as building up into a great crescendo, a wave of black rage breaking into a backwash of thoughtful “yes racism is deeply engrained in America, now we see how deep, so all cops have to be black” and he wants to get ahead of the curve. Or maybe he’s smart enough to see Zimmerman really is Hispanic and this will turn into a black-Hispanic confrontation, and he wants to be careful.

What really struck me this time is just how thin-skinned the elites and their minions are. They can’t take any criticism, confrontation, or challenge at all. They get very angry and upset when they encounter any.

It didn’t used to be this way. We have always been told what to think, but the old guard- elite Protestants of the northeast- were more subtle about it. As they moved to marginalize the white working class and bring in NAMs as there preferred political allies in the 60’s, they tended to treat dissent firmly but gently.

Shaming is a powerful tool of social control. Like any tool, or weapon, it has to be used carefully and correctly or it does more harm than good. If you shame someone mildly, they fear further rejection and disapproval, and want to avoid it, and maybe get back in your good graces. If you shame someone harshly, they are humiliated and enraged and become your sworn enemy. Even if they are very weak and can do little or nothing to hurt you this creates problems and should be avoided, except as the matter of a ritual sacrifice of a very small number of people.

Again I want to emphasize that the people who set the system up in the 30’s and 40’s actually knew how to run things. They understood persuasion and propaganda, what was for them a noble lie and what was the truth. They wanted to increase the social power of black people and reduce the power of lower class whites. Racism is a basic defense mechanism of lower class whites, to keep themselves safe and separated from blacks. All people who are not stupid are racists of course, but higher class whites don’t need to actually use this because they aren’t physically close to blacks.

Racism needed to be shamed, but in a fairly benign way, to avoid upsetting too many people. Racism, we were told, was simply a mental error. It was not enlightened or scientific. This ignorance would be gently corrected by education. People who persisted would be written off as regrettably unenlightened and too attached to the ways of the past.

Northern whites could mostly buy this. They didn’t care if they worked with a few blacks, or blacks ate in the same restaurants, or a few blacks lived in their neighborhoods. Southerners had developed a way of coping with blacks by formal segregation, just as northerners had by informal segregation. It’s a testament to the power of the elites in Walter Russell Meade’s “blue model” that this became accepted and legislated in just a few years.

Blacks weren’t really down with this, though. Some were willing to take their bigger share of government cheese and enjoy it, but many used this for open attacks on white. These attacks, however, were mostly managed as the “Incidents” I talked about before. The aggression of blacks was just treated as proof they needed more concessions, and then they would be peaceful.

That didn’t happen. The one place the system has seriously retrenched has been in criminal justice. The weak system of the 60’s and 70’s was replaced in the 80’s and 90’s by the strong system of today. Blacks hate it, but black aggression so enraged the white proles that they had a revolution on their hands.

The shaming has been ongoing, and has gotten stronger rather than weaker. Nothing whites do makes them less guilty or evil to blacks or liberals. The 60’s generation thought they would take over and remove any remnant of the old society. The fact that anyone still disagrees with them enrages them. The children who grew up eagerly taking in all the lessons about “racism” and “injustice” form the modern left. All the old New Deal people are dead, or very old and retired.

Rather than a Protestant model of mild but still smarting rebuke, we have a model of complete evil and filth, the communist idea that anything outside the fold is evil and must be destroyed. Is this Jewish? The Jewish idea of uncleanness seems to be similar. The pre-Jewish ethic of revolutionary violence doesn’t seem to contain it. In any case, it is not gentle, it does not leave you with any hope of being left alone, or getting back into the good graces of those dishing it out.

More people are getting the idea that they are outside, permanently.

P.S. Coates, you are such a coward. You have all the power on your side, but none of the truth. Don’t count on it lasting forever.


About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    Great post Thrasymachus. I too have been on the outside, going on decades now, since I got shouted down by a Jewish liberal in my “government” class in 1991.

    I know a lot of white proles, and nowadays they are default White nationalists. No kidding. the momentum is with us.

    • I would just like to know how to get the process moving. It’s ripe to blow up, but how do we light the fuse?

      • mindweapon says:


        Well, what do you envision happening when it “blows up?” A Turner Diaries scenario?

        I don’t think it’s going to happen like a feature film, where the bad guys get killed, and the good guys live happily ever after.

        Instead what is actually happening is a permanent loss of faith in the multicult/liberal system. They had their big hurrah between 1950 and probably 2020, as these sorts of things generally last 70 years, just like the Soviet Union.

        I tried to talk to people in the early 2000’s, between 2000 and 2004, and found that middle aged people were too complacent, and sports fans loved their negro afflete heroes, and people with middle class jobs were bought off, and I realized “that’s what is keeping the multicult going.”

        So what we need,and we’ll get, is a profound loss of faith in the system. There is a lot of damage still to be done between now and then, unfortunately, but this thing has to run its course.

        Meanwhile, the people who have already turned against the multicult will get more and more enraged every year, and the numbers of such people will grow. Stormfront will grow (so long as the Internet stays up). It’s a slow process, not a feature film with car chases and gunfights.

        So what does that mean for us? What should White nationalists do? I’ll give you my opinion.

        We need to find economic niches for ourselves and for our fellow White nationalists. For example, if there’s one single thing I’d like to see us do is own convenience stores. Fuck these Hindus owning all the convenience stores! That’s so wrong. We need White people owning convenience stores. The convenience store becomes an economic base, so the White family doesn’t have to commute to some shitty job and can homeschool their kids and hire tutors and send their kids to college to study engineering/science/math.

        From this foundation, we can do many things. WN’s should hide their views so they can run for office and lobby politicians, and push for WN friendly policies — for example, prosecuting white collar crime very harshly is a way to hit the YKW in a sly way, with plausible deniability regarding “anti-semitism.” Also, harsh prosecutions of white collar crime will show the country who is doing the crime.

        Lastly, we need to be studying and practicing how to survive and thrive in economic decline and possible collapse of the system. If there’s a “collapse” we will be able to speak freely and organize openly, and the multiculters won’t be able to do a damn thing about it because they will be too occupied with basic survival. Assuming you have an arsenal of firearms, being able to produce potable water is job 1. I know a Civil Defense guy from the Cold War era who told me that in a collapse situation, people get lazy about boiling water and end up drinking surface water and dying from pathogenic microbes like giardia. So I’d recommend getting an old TV and getting the Fresnel lens out of it, like this guy did:

        I think this guy is one of us. Notice what he does with the TV after he gets the useful parts out of it.

        Second is getting a store of food. Google “Bishop’s Storehouse” It’s the Mormon stored food establishments, they are all over the country. Third, it’s spring time. Your town might have a community garden. Get a garden plot in the community garden. You will probably meet likeminded people. Old White people are often secretly WN, and you can talk to them freely.

        So that’s it. It’s not terribly exciting, but it’s what I’ve concluded after all these years.

      • It would be cool if it ended like Rambo 4, with the bad guys getting cut in two or their heads blown off with a .50 cal. machine gun. But I know that’s just a fantasy, cathartic in a harmful way.

        I point the finger at mainstream conservatives for bitching pointlessly, but I do the same thing on another level. I’m trying to think of other tools, but to what end? “Raise awareness”? That’s code for the system manipulating its food solders. “Getting people involved”? Same thing. Even I can’t help thinking in system terms. And yet, I still want to engage it directly.

    “The shaming has been ongoing, and has gotten stronger rather than weaker.”

    As Mark Steyn pointed out in his new book, so much or liberal argument boild down to ‘”Shut up” he explained’

  4. Wally D says:

    Very perceptive analysis of our current situation.

  5. Ryu says:

    I also love the Turner Diaries. But there are some gaps.

    The spiritual war has to be won first. It’s the will to fight that’s important. No government can survive the loss of consent of it’s citizens. ZOG is becoming more and more anti-white.

    ZOG won’t ever fight for whites. We will. Thus, we develop our own nations with a nation, much like the PLE concepts. We can’t rely on the state to do anything but enrich itself.

    The most difficult step in WN is learning to work together. Group thinking is a skill that almost no white man living has experienced, yet was common just a century ago. For now, only the most stubborn and bullheaded individualists become WNs. Then we expect them to think as a group. Of course, I am critical of myself here as well.

    • mindweapon says:


      That’s a good point. I have known a lot of WN’s, and I have definitely seen patterns of character traits among them. For one thing, there’s no middle. It’s either highly intelligent, highly functional people, or tatted up prison brutes and latchkey kids who are in training to be tatted up prison brutes.

      However, I’ve been hearing that skinhead groups in California now require drug tests and criminal background checks, so maybe this is changing. If you want to be part of a real WN community, you need to go to California or Montana at this point. But it’s amazing and wonderful that there are such communities now.

  6. Brandon says:

    We don’t need to light any fuse as it’s already been lit. The southoftheborderites and the blacks are already at each other’s throats and eventually a few smart blacks (oxymoron?) will come crying to whitey to deliver them from THEIR NEW OPPRESSOR. Hah! Rots of ruck, as they say in Japan.

    This meztizo/black mix is doing us all a favor by lighting this fuse…

  7. Columnist says:

    It is remarkable that you point out the class tension between upper class Whites and lower class Whites. Class struggle is itself a Leftist idea.
    Leftists excuse Black violence by pointing out the upper class Whites do not allow them in their social circles, at least not proportionally. Why then, don’t Blacks and Leftists put pressure DIRECTLY to upper class Whites, instead of pressurizing lower class Whites, in the hope that the latter put pressure on the upper class?

  8. P K van der Byl says:

    Things really are changing. As a WN I’m not exactly prone to optimism but the tectonic plates are shifting perceptibly. Blacks have no self-discipline of any kind, and the Jews always push too far – so both the street army and the MSM don’t know when to stop pushing the “Dats Raciss!” meme too far.

    The Trayvon Incident is a perfect storm of sorts – NAM-on-NAM violence, institutionalized Black hysteria, obvious MSM mendacity, and now Da Preznit has waded in to remind everyone what a clueless Marxistoid Black nationalist and Lefty college professor and all-around Affirmative Action baby he actually is.

    An awful lot of whites – it’s both a generational and a class thing – are implicit WNs. Not a term they would use, or even know, but they see the Emperor hasn’t had any clothing for decades. They’ve been forced to go along with the Official Lies all their lives, and they’re tired of it. Are they gonna counter-rally? Nope, but Rome wasn’t built in a day either.

    It’s easy to get down and see how many whites have been utterly lost to sanity thanks to decades of USG and MSM agitprop. On the other hand, it’s easy to forget that whites still are the biggest population group in the country by far, so getting 5% of us to see the light is still a huge number of people.

    Lil’ Trayvon is a godsend – to us. The Blacks will go nuts over this, since there’s no chance Zimmerman will get the lynching they will demand, and in an election year that’s a good reminder. A lot of young and dumb whites who voted for Obama in 2008 in the hopes of some sort of post-racial America will now get it, unless they are genuinely retarded.

    I’d like to know how many here are Ron Paul Supporters.

    • Columnist says:

      Why? Several years ago, I did warn the people about Ron Paul’s Libertarianism.

      • E says:

        I’m Ron Paul supporter and I’m digging this blog. If I can find Paul supporters here I might be sold.

      • I agree with Paul on domestic policy, not as much on foreign policy. Paul makes the leftist mistake of going over to the other side if he dislikes US policy. I don’t know how much aggression we should engage in in the Middle East, as little as possible to protect our interests, but I think we do have the right to use aggression, even pre-emptively.

  10. Me Too says:

    Your analysis of YKW’s “shaming” is untutored although your perception that their “shaming” is more intense than that of the WASP elite is on point. YKW don’t really do “shaming” they do annihilation. Currently they can only get away with existential annihilation – for example preventing you from earning a livelihood if you are known to harbor views they don’t like. It would turn to actual annihilation if they could get away with it. They have a saying “yimakh shemo ve zikhro” which means “may his name and memory be obliterated”. That ain’t shaming – that’s annihilation!
