Racist Trees and other items of leftist dementia

Let’s face it: it is open season on whites, whiteness, and everything built by whites, which means in essence that the forces against civilization have the upper hand. To be clear, if you magically replaced every white person in North America with Japanese people, the Left would be railing against Japanese-ness. The hatred of order is the point, not the racial or cultural targets of it. Leftism is a revolt against standards first and foremost. Those who uphold standards of whatever nature are the Left’s targets.

Today’s lunacy is this article in Sultan Knish

Mickey Fearn, the National Park Service Deputy Director for Communications and Community Assistance, made headlines when he claimed that black people don’t visit national parks because they associate them with slaves being lynched by their masters.

Yellowstone, the first national park, was created in 1872 in Wyoming. Slavery was over by then and no one had ever been lynching slaves around Old Faithful anyway. But false claims die very hard.

Now Alcee Hastings, an impeached judge, and a coalition of minority groups is demanding increased “inclusiveness” at national parks. High on their list is the claim that, “African-Americans have felt unwelcome and even fearful in federal parklands during our nation’s history because of the horrors of lynching.” What do national parks have to do with lynchings? Many national parks have trees. People were hung from trees. It’s guilt by arboreal association.

Sultan Knish concludes:

The Obama era has seen the “Sharptoning” of America as the same ugly shakedown scams that were being practiced in New York or Chicago were suddenly national policy. This is the Sharptoning of the National Park Service. It’s happening in every agency and arm of government. We just don’t notice it…

Forests and lakes are not about where we want to go collectively. They are where we once were. They represent spaces of imagination and reflection that have nothing in common with Finney’s compulsion. They don’t have to represent Finney’s demands for “demographic and ethnic diversity”. They allow us a freedom from the confining urban spaces of leftist identity politics that deny our humanity. They show us that life is pure and simple in ways that defy the convoluted nonsense of political correctness.

It’s not hard to see why the left, despite its hollow environmental posturing, hates them.

I am waiting for Trump to correct this nonsense, to offer a spirited defence of normal thought, and to remove – as US politics allows Presidents to do so – every leftwing nutjob appointed to advisory boards to the US government.

The election in the United States will be about race. We have seen the face of black racial privilege and we don’t like it. They will call the supporters of Trump racists, and there is a sense -however limited – in which the accusation is true. The supporters of Trump were people who did not use to feel that way, but they have judged the Obama regime by its fruits (Trayvon Martin, Ferguson Missouri- cop killings and celebrations of black mayhem, affirmative action for overprivileged blacks, starting at the President) and have decided to repudiate it.

Trump will beat Hillary like a baby seal.
