Vdare compares a truth telling 1994 article appearing in the mainstream press, which points out systematic legal, state sponsored, and private persecution of whites in majority “minority” regions, which today could never appear.
Of course, if you read old books, it is apparent that political correctness has been getting worse ever since the eighteen thirties or thereabouts.
“Conservatives” think that last year or last decade was lovely, but things have gone too far left since then, our current Republican Presidential candidate being more of the “back to last year” persuasion. He promises slightly less Obamacare, a deficit that escalates not quite as fast, but proposes to continue demographic replacement and continue affirmative actioning blacks and women into government employment even where they vastly overrepresented relative to their numbers in the general population, and continue affirmative actioning women into college, even though they are already overrepresented in college despite significantly lower typical LSAT scores.
Nazis, neo nazis, and white nationalists think the nineteen thirties or early nineteen forties was politically fine, that Franklin D. Roosevelt and social security was the greatest thing since sliced bread, and there is nothing wrong with social security that soaking the rich could not fix, but that things went too far left once Jews were encouraged to convert to progressivism and join the ruling elite and promptly launched the civil rights movement. They don’t think there was any such thing as political correctness in the early twentieth century. In this sense, Nazis are leftists – and the Tea Party are also leftists.
But everything that is going wrong today was visible in the middle of the nineteenth century.
The first political correctness was the doctrine that women were naturally sexually pure and were oppressed by men’s rapacious sexual lusts, a doctrine that would have met with hearty laughter and obscene jokes in any earlier period. This doctrine was enforced to justify the dismantling of patriarchy, and is, surprisingly, still going strong, with ever more unreasonable sexual harassment laws, and rape trials with rules ever more weighted against the accused and in favor of the accuser, with an ever expanding definition of rape.
Fertile age women lack maturity, future orientation, and ability to defer gratification, thus tend to make bad decisions, which is why they need supervision and control by their father, and subsequently their husband. Their voracious hypergamy is apt to undermine the family, hence the need for patriarchy, the need for social and legal enforcement of a marriage contract where a woman promises to always love, honor, and obey, in order to preserve the family against hypergamy. Like children, they should not be allowed to make binding contracts without the permission of their father or their husband. The first political correctness was, in early Victorian times, to prohibit anyone from mentioning any of this.
Around the eighteen seventies or eighteen nineties, blacks also got protection against people so unkind as to mention group differences, and things have been going downhill ever since. If you read old books about the Great Zimbabwe ruins, it is apparent that the writers are walking on eggshells.
While the civil rights movement was Jewish converts to progressivism being lefter than thou, everything before that was due to groups descended from Quakers and Puritans, who in the pursuit of power focused more and more on this world, and less and less on the next, becoming today’s anglosphere left, which rules the world. A Jew who in the pursuit of power converts to progressivism is a converso, not a Jew, and if he should have any children, he is likely to have children with a non Jew, his Jewish identity swiftly dissolving into his Cathedral identity.
