Works for me.

Goodwhites pose as our moral superiors: so-o-o-o tolerant, open-minded, progressive, humane… But they are in fact, though, nasty pieces of work: vindictive, self-righteous, cruel, contemptuous of their fellow citizens.

Bigots. I left a more pedestrian comment on this at Liberty's Torch, but it's stuck in the vetting queue.

What I didn't say is there I'll say here. The "goodwhites" are fond of charging their "lessers" as racist and bigots in a manner of all who hurl swear-words mindlessly. So what has kept Derbyshire or just about everyone else on the Right from holding up the mirror to their projections? At least were we to regularly charge them with being bigots we have overwhelming evidence on our side. And don't dismiss the emotional impact from having that ugly face turned back on them in justice. Force them to see through the shopworn façade that their alleged good intentions gone bad now hides only from themselves.

A man who has buried himself in a comfy and self-satisfied emotional space will only be ejected from it by an emotion of greater force.

I've pondered for a long time what it takes to wake people up to the dangers of untrammeled government and reckless ethnic and racial experimentation through uncontrolled mass immigration. (Not that "controlled" immigration is any better.

I conclude when all is said and done that it's pointless to argue with an emotion. A more powerful emotional force probably won't work unless it's grief and contrition after economic or civilizational collapse for having been so stupid.

"... unless it's grief and contrition after economic or civilizational collapse for having been so stupid." to which you needed not to add 'when it's too late."

Fear and anger are two more powerful forces that, respectively, drive and compel people out of their comfy zones. Using logic to achieve those are frequently the solutions seen in fictions. (Where is Fran now that we could use his recall? :)) The too late awakening to which I inferred from your comment likely occurs in the midst of a war zone. Still even in the smoldering embers there remain those still fast asleep.

My prayer is for inspiration not for more logical arguments, but to come up with a sequence of clever tactics that would trigger the positive emotions needed.

I nearly forgot the following while awaiting your response.

Later on the same day I wrote the above regret

"So what has kept Derbyshire or just about everyone else on the Right from holding up the mirror to their projections? At least were we to regularly charge them with being bigots we have overwhelming evidence on our side."

KG provided the following link to Victor Davis Hanson: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/442535/democratic-party-hypocrisy-racism-sexism-homophobia.

Two out of three times VDH used bigot in the manner I suggested. Not only that, he provided the evidence to back the charges as would be proper. And furthermore, he does it in response to the ad hominem tactics that you identified in your response to my comment at Liberty's Torch. How's that for redoubling our ideas?

I'm sure you'll like it. Here's to wishing you can make hay from it all.

Thanks. I'll check it out. I cooled on Hanson a lot after he did his part to make Trump seem like a hayseed.

Btw, if you haven't already, check out Fran's fine essay here.
