Washington Post: After Careful Consideration, We Have Decided It Is Now Intolerable White Supremacism to Support (Spins Wheel) Reason and Civility in Public Discourse

reasonandcivilityarewhitesupremacist

A friend laughs as he sends this: "You stupid motherf***ers," he curses, thinking of the House Conservatives and Polite Company Republicans. "Did you really think they would not turn on you and use the same 'racist' attacks on you that they (and you) use on your interparty rivals? In your 'Please Eat Me Last' strategy, did you ever consider that eventually the crocodile would get around to eating you?"

Enjoy, Ben Shapiro. Enjoy, Philip Klein. Enjoy, David French.

Enjoy, Guy Benson and Kevin D. Williamson and Jonah Goldberg and "Xan" Desanctis and Tiana Lowe.

Enjoy, Bill Kristol, Steve Hayes, Jim Swift, and Jonathan V. Last.

Enjoy, Seth Mandel, always so eager to signal your virtue to your leftwing twitter pals.

Enjoy, "Reason and Civility" Fake Conservatives.

The left has decided to eat its dessert a little early.

Conservatives say we’ve abandoned reason and civility. The Old South used the same language to defend slavery.

EVE FAIRBANKS AUGUST 29, 2019

After the El Paso shooting, Ben Shapiro -- a popular conservative podcaster -- asked Americans to draw a line between the few conservatives who are white supremacists and those who, like him, aren’t. Almost all Americans are "on the same side," he said, and "we should be mourning together." In his telling, we aren’t, for “one simple reason: Too many on the political left [are] castigating the character of those who disagree," lumping conservatives and political nonconformists together with racists and xenophobes.

I grew up in a conservative family. The people I talk to most frequently, the people I call when I need help, are conservative. I’m not inclined to paint conservatives as thoughtless bigots. But a few years ago, listening to the voices and arguments of commentators like Shapiro, I began to feel a very specific deja vu I couldn't initially identify. It felt as if the arguments I was reading were eerily familiar. I found myself Googling lines from articles, especially when I read the rhetoric of a group of people we could call the "reasonable right."

These are figures who typically dislike President Trump but often say they’re being pushed rightward -- sometimes away from what they claim is their natural leftward bent -- by intolerance and extremism on the left...

So it felt frustrating: When I read Weiss, when I listened to Shapiro, when I watched Peterson or read the supposedly heterodox online magazine Quillette, what was I reminded of?

My childhood home is just a half-hour drive from the Manassas battlefield in Virginia...

I think I see where this is going...

Thinking back on those debates, I finally figured it out. The reasonable right's rhetoric is exactly the same as the antebellum rhetoric I'd read so much of. The same exact words. The same exact arguments. Rhetoric, to be precise, in support of the slave-owning South.

...

[C]lear statements [in open defense of slavery] were not the norm. Proslavery rhetoricians talked little of slavery itself. Instead, they anointed themselves the defenders of "reason," free speech and "civility." The prevalent line of argument in the antebellum South rested on the supposition that Southerners were simultaneously the keepers of an ancient faith and renegades -- made martyrs by their dedication to facts, reason and civil discourse.

...

They stressed the importance of logic, "facts," "truth," "science" and "nature" much more than Northern rhetoricians did.... Josiah Nott, a surgeon who laid out the purported science behind black inferiority, held that questions like slavery "should be left open to fair and honest investigation, and made to stand or fall according to the facts." T

...

The most important thing to know about them, they held, was that they were not the oppressors. They were the oppressed. They were driven to feelings of isolation and shame purely on the basis of freely held ideas, the right of every thinking man.

..


Let’s call this particular logic "antebellum reasoning." Its appeal was that it identified pro-South rhetoricians as the upholders of America’s true heritage: They were, in their own reckoning, dedicated to truth -- and persecuted by tyrants.

...


All of this is there in the reasonable right: The claim that they are the little people struggling against prevailing winds. The argument that they're the ones championing reason and common sense. The allegation that their interlocutors are'’t so much wrong as excessive; they're just trying to think freely and are being tormented. The reliance on hyperbole and slippery slopes to warn about their adversaries' intentions and power. The depiction of their opponents as an "orthodoxy," an epithet the antebellum South loved.

...


In Ben Shapiro — who ascribes right-wing anger to unwise left-wing provocation ("How do you think people are going to react?") -- I hear a letter printed in the Charleston Mercury, which warned that "if the mad career of the hot headed abolitionists should lead to acts of violence on the part of those whom they so vindictively assail, who shall be accountable? ... Not the South."


...

Lincoln understood that antebellum reasoning was more dangerous than straightforward defenses of chattel slavery. He feared that by claiming to stand for freedom, reason and civility, and by framing themselves as beleaguered victims, pro-Southern thinkers could draft new warriors who thought they were fighting for something fundamentally American, even if they were wary of slavery itself.

...

It’s hard to avoid the conclusion that some contemporary commentators use antebellum reasoning cynically. Hard-right American commentators like David Horowitz have noted the tactical advantages of sounding "outraged" and "morally certain," and of stressing their status as renegade thinkers to argue for right-wing policies such as much more restrictive immigration laws or institutionalized prejudice against Muslims. Others, I suspect, seek the reassurance of antebellum reasoning to help reconcile their ambivalent feelings about cultural and demographic changes. Still others may simply be disillusioned with contemporary politics, intuit that important conversations are somehow not being had, and long for a discourse anchored on simple, easily shared principles. That's why the South came up with it in the first place. It conscripted allies who had no taste for distasteful things into what was cast as a much wider fight.

...

But today I see what Lincoln feared. Nearly daily, I read some new figure appealing to antebellum reasoning.

...

With this threat, the reasonable right has recruited the left into serving its purpose. Media outlets and college campuses now go to extraordinary lengths to prove their "balance" and tolerance, bending over backward to give platforms to right-wing writers and speakers who already have huge exposure.

In the human body, viruses use the shells of immune cells to trick other cells into letting them in.

Are you calling the many Jewish figures you've assailed in this article (Bari Weiss, Ben Shapiro, Dave Rubin) "viruses"?

Interesting that that's where your mind goes immediately.

Principles like freedom and equality have functioned, through time, as the American immune system, warding off sickness. But they can also be co-opted. As they were more than 150 years ago, ideas like freedom of speech, diversity and respect are now being used to turn opponents of conservatism into helpless hosts, transmitting its ideas.

If you hear somebody lament, as Bret Stephens does, that political "opinions that were considered reasonable and normal" not too long ago now must be "delivered in whispers," it might be antebellum reasoning.

Great, going after another Jew.

...

If somebody says liberals have become illiberal, you should consider whether it’s true. But you should also know that this assertion has a long history and that George Wallace and Barry Goldwater used it in their eras to powerful effect. People who make this claim aren’t “renegades.” They’re heirs to an extremely specific tradition in American political rhetoric, one that has become a dangerous inheritance.

Am I angry?

F*** no I'm not angry, I'm delighted.

I love this so, so much. I love this so much it feels like my heart will literally burst with warmth and glowing joy and the gooey nougat of red-flushed first-crush love.

And to be honest, I think she's on to something. Maybe she's right. Maybe people like Ben Shapiro really are using "antebellum reasoning" to justify their hatred of blacks and Hispanics.

Maybe we should purge him just to make sure.

We wouldn't want him Reflecting Badly on the rest of us.

Oh, and Rich Lowry -- Crush This Evil. Resign so that your racism and pro-slavery rhetoric no longer stains this movement.

AOC did essentially this a few weeks ago on twitter. She said "white nationalism" (or white supremacy, they use these interchangeably) was a virus, and not only could people get and pass this virus, but that it could infect institutions and systems.

The point was to say our US institutions are infected with this "virus" and must be destroyed/fixed.

Faction is the primary policy of the Democrats. Stitch together coalitions, promising everybody a little of everything....The New Deal, The New Frontier, The Great Society, etc.

Faction is going to break us. They are pouring gasoline on the fire and blaming the blaze on us.

I don't want Ben Shapiro's support. If anyone talked about Jews the way he has called for ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, they would be arrested.

Any rational discussion of slavery should begin with the fact that it was a universal condition of existence until a few hundred years ago. This should lead to a thoughtful examination of why that was so and what changed. (Hint: It's not the moral superiority of our betters.)

"Actually, except for a few media types who apparently have nothing constructive to do, nobody cares about this. The world has real issues to deal with, and this article is drivel.

Nobody cares. Really. Nobody."

"Obama had promised that reason and civility, once reintroduced in Washington, would win the day."

and

"Obama had built a defensive line for civility and reason, and it was starting to hold."

174 Funny. I remember the Left endlessly going on about 'reason' and 'civility' for the past 20 years. Conservatives were endlessly pilloried for being 'uncivil.'

You've got to realize we're not debating reasoning, we're debating their emotional problems. Trying to reason with them isn't going to work because its really all about their own delicate self___ as both the warrior Keepers of Ultimate Virtue and Ultimate Fragile Victims. It's every bit of their mental problems playing out on a political chessboard.

178 Iran is still feeling the pain after U.S. cyber military forces brought down a database used by its Revolutionary Guard Corps to target ships in the Persian Gulf, hours after the Islamic Republic shot down an American drone, officials say.

The retaliatory cyberattack on June 20 focused on a system that Iran uses to determine which oil tankers and marine traffic it should go after, a senior U.S. official told the New York Times. As of Thursday, Iran has yet to recover all of the data lost in the attack and is trying to restore military communication networks linked to the database, the newspaper added.

thanks. But that seems to confirm that the script *I* read is real. The immigrants are Muslims, not Hispanics. Whoops, wow did I err.

Also, I really didn't call for the movie to be deplatformed. I took issue instead with the usual Professional Former Conservative Corps attacking conservatives for suspecting, rightly, that the movie was a hitjob on them. They were making huge claims -- the movie is "right-wing valenced," claimed liberal pretending to be a conservative Ross Douthat -- that were unlikely and entirely unsupported by the evidence or just a basic working knowledge of how screenplays work.

After that went on for some time, they finally actually broke up with us, so that they could be with their One True Love! But lo and behold, they now come to find that that guy doesn't actually ever want to be with the kind of girl that cheats on her man.

"I'm from the South! I have one super power, I can see racism! And you are a racist"!

Polite conservatives have ceded too much to the ruthless Left, including the curriculum in the public schools. Was it Stalin who said give him two generations of controlling the schools, and he could change a society into whatever he wanted it to be?

There's a reason that notorious '60's and '70's terrorist Bill Ayers went into teacher training at University of Illinois. His goals were still the same, but instead of bombs he decided to play the long game in public education.

279 Personally, I agree (to a point) with the Post.

Leaders of the Old South--Davis, Stephens, Toombs, etc.--did argue that a contributing factor in Southern secession was the violent rhetoric of some abolitionists. And guess what? They were right. Many abolitionists openly condoned John Brown's plans for a slave insurrection--which would have been extremely bloody among blacks and whites alike--and even spoke of the need to eliminate the South's white population and replace it with Northern transplants.

This opens up a whole bunch of different arguments, which aren't the point here, but bottom line, abolitionists in the late 1850s did abandon civil rhetoric, just as the Left is today. It was dangerous then, and it's dangerous now.

She's right, you know. After Trump, if Democrats take power in any significant way, we'll have people wandering up and down the streets (because nobody in the new "ruling" class knows how to fix the machines), killing the productive members of society, starving because they don't know how or are too lazy to grow food, and the former producers tumbling over each other in a rush to get out before the new overlords shoot them.

Much like today's South Africa, I imagine.

Well the South seceded (after preparing for war and moving federal arsenals into convenient positions) before any negotiations on the topic occurred. Do remember Lincoln said he wasn't going to pursue any sort of unilateral abolition(under the assumption of no war of course).

Lincoln wasn't a radical abolitionist. During the civil war itself he made clear the war goal was reunification and not abolitionism(which would not have been popular). Prior to his election we were a one party country for roughly a decade, so no negotiations occurred. All previous efforts in the direction of abolition legislatively had largely been about curtailing the expansion of slavery. It is likely had the Democrats not freaked out about losing the Presidency that Lincoln would have been ineffectual at moving the ball much, as he was an unpopular compromise candidate.

The South had a record of reneging on previous agreements to restrain slavery's expansion, so I doubt any deals would've been adhered to in the long haul, even if they were interested in one.

You think she just plucked "antebellum" out of nowhere - accusing her current political foes to the "bad guys" of our last Civil War??

She's been living in South Africa for years, she knows what a hot race war/civil war looks like, and then she goes out of her way to write essays in which she compares Trump and conservatives to SA's Afrikaner bad guys. She's careless, but she's certainly not unaware that she's playing with fire from what I can tell.

I think you have ascribed way too much thoughtfulness to her. she thinks she is calling the right slavers, not laying the groundwork for another civil war. she is not thinking that she is laying the groundwork for getting lots of people killed, including herself and hers.

she and her herd do not ever worry about the slippery slope or unintended/unforseen consequences. that is why the sturmabteilung and red guards never anticipated what happened to them.

As bad as the Left tries to make us feel every day, I hope you (everyone) are enjoying DJT's presidency. It will never be like this again. Even when we win, we will lose. Just like before.

But for now we have someone who does to them what they've been doing to us without consequence. And he relishes it. He has fun doing it and what's more he's doing it for US. He's seen the faces of the forgotten man and the people that look at him adoringly because he is their voice. You would have to be an unfeeling robot not to see it.

Obviously he personally enjoys it but I think he knows what irritating the irritators is doing for the Americans who have been used, abused and left behind by the globalists.

It wouldn't have worked, because it's doubtful that southern slaveholders would have agreed to it at any reimbursement level.

When reason and civility don't work, maybe pure visceral fear - we hate these conservatives, but they are stone cold crazy and if you f with them or theirs, they really may just kill you right then and there - is the only answer.

451 Yes, I love this too. OK, not as much as Ace, that seems a bit over the top. But I do love it.
So great to see ALL these people reveal themselves for who the are, in their bones.
It's like we're living in a Mad Magazine strip: if people really said what they were thinking. I used to love those, and now it is happening IRL.
It's awesome, in the truest sense of that word.
