|The Cantina scene from Star Wars: A New Hope. Or was it the 2012 DNC in Charlotte?|
Here's my take on the conventions:
Two scenes in George Lucas’ first Star Wars movie beautifully encapsulated the emotions I felt while attending both the GOP Convention in Tampa and the DNC Convention in Charlotte:
Indeed, an “Ocean of Whiteness” was exactly how black Republican consultant Raynard Jackson described the Republican Convention in a front-page banner headline of the black newspaper The Richmond Times. He was right—although I would say the Main Stream Media, massively present and mingling with the delegates, was even whiter.
- The famous Bar Scene (where Luke Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi acquire the services of renegade pilot Han Solo) was the Democratic Convention: a bizarre assortment of weird- looking aliens from unheard-of regions of the galaxy, speaking languages and engaging in conversations I couldn’t understand, interspersed with the occasional human.
- The sweepingly- choreographed Awards Ceremony Scene at the end of the movie after the destruction of the planet-destroying Death Star, directly inspired by Leni Riefenstahl’s Triumph of the Will, was the GOP convention: the Rebel Alliance an ocean of whiteness (remember, the film was made in 1977) except for the token Wookiee, Chewbacca—who was on the podium.
It’s been reported that only two percent of the delegates at the GOP were Black. Conversely, reportedly 26 percent of the delegates at the DNC were Black, though I’d wager that at least 50 percent of those in attendance at Charlotte’s Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte were—all dressed in their most impressive Sunday attire to pay homage to their Commander in Chief. Whites, many of them homosexual, the men tall good-looking Nordics, the women Ladies Professional Golf Association caricatures, seemed to be about a quarter (although this included the MSM).
Hispanics and particularly Asians were somewhat surprisingly less well represented, in that order.
Wait a second: is this the GOP Convention?
But beneath this diversity there was one commonality at the DNC: the atheists, blacks, Hispanics, “good” white liberals, homosexuals, Amerindians, and other NAMs in attendance – despite their ultimately political interests—were totally united in their belief that the historic majority population of the United States, what VDARE.com calls the “historic American nation,” must be deposed and that the culture this hated majority created must be subverted at all costs.
In a bid to fit in, I made sure to purchase an Obama-Biden button to wear the entire time I was at the DNC. (The hilarious “Once you go Black, you never go Back” Obama-Biden button was a hard souvenir to find).
It was a surreal sight to see white liberals, Blacks, Hispanics, and other NAMs swoon over such illustrious individuals as Jesse Jackson, Rep. John Lewis, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews (as he waddled through the concourse to the media suites), all making a living by promoting an agenda that must frankly be described as anti-white.
I fitted in more easily at the GOP Convention. But it was painfully obvious that Conservatism Inc. has already capitulated to the idea that that a majority-minority America is an inevitability, and that the Republicans must appease it—and certainly that it dare not implement what VDARE.com calls the “Sailer Strategy” and appeal to its own (white) base.
Pathetically, the Beltway-friendly Daily Caller complained that MSNBC cut-away from showing the speeches of some of the non-white speakers at the GOP Convention. But the plain fact is that the Republicans would have gladly showcased a complete non-white lineup of speakers if they could have fielded one.
It was impossible to watch the speeches of Condoleezza Rice, congressional candidate Mia Love and former Democratic Alabama Congressman Artur Davis at the GOP Convention, and to see the Obama-exceeding homage with which they were greeted, without realizing that they were there addressing the “Ocean of Whiteness” precisely because they were seen as an olive branch to the non-white community that might erase virtual monolithic support President Obama has among his people:
Read the rest over at VDare, but be sure to comment on it here. And remember -- Like Han Solo, always shoot first.…Obama continues to lead Romney among key parts of his political base, including African Americans (94 percent to 0 percent), Latinos (by a 2-to-1 margin), voters under 35-years-old (52 percent to 41 percent) and women (51 percent to 41 percent).
Romney is ahead with whites (53 percent to 40 percent), rural voters (47 percent to 38 percent) and seniors (49 percent to 41 percent). [NBC/WSJ poll: Heading into conventions, Obama has four-point lead, NBC, August 21, 2012]
