Texas College Op-Ed Calls For Ethnic Cleansing

Rudy Martinez, a student at Texas State University, penned an op-ed this week for the student newspaper. He called for the elimination of white people. Here’s a report. [1]Excerpts from the op-ed:

I see white people as an aberration. … Ontologically speaking, white death will mean liberation for all … accept this death as the first step toward defining yourself as something other than the oppressor. Until then, remember this: I hate you because you shouldn’t exist. You are both the dominant apparatus on the planet and the void in which all other cultures, upon meeting you, die.

And:

When I think of all the white people I’ve ever encountered—whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friends, police officers, et cetera—there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent’.

And:

Remember this: I hate you because you shouldn’t exist. You are both the dominant apparatus on the planet and the void in which all other cultures, upon meeting you, die.

Do I even have to say it? Can you imagine a piece like this being published in a student newspaper about black people, or Asian people, or Latino people, and so forth? Of course you can’t. If it appeared, there would be a national media frenzy, and people would be fired over it. As it happens, the editor of the paper apologized, as did the president of the college. The editor and everybody who approved this hateful column ought to be fired.

Texas State University is in San Marcos. You might remember my writing earlier this year about how Texas A&M has on its faculty a black philosophy professor who speculates in his work on when it is okay to kill white people (see here [2] and here [3]). When the Chronicle of Higher Education wrote about the controversy, the reporter was highly sympathetic to Curry, and didn’t seem too bothered by the incendiary racial, anti-white rhetoric from him. The elites honestly don’t seem to grasp why this is offensive.

A&M and Texas State are both public universities, supported by Texas taxpayers. As the Texas student reader who tipped me off to this writes:

Note the cowardly use of quotations around ‘racist’ by local news:
http://www.kvue.com/news/local/hays-county/texas-state-president-speaks-out-after-publications-racist-opinion-column/495614124 [4]

Editorial in Texas State student newspaper condemned as ‘racist’ [5]

Or otherwise distancing themselves from the claim that it was racist
https://www.ksat.com/news/texas-state-campus-paper-issues-apology-after-publishing-opinion-column-calling-for-white-death- [6]

Does anyone doubt that news organizations would call such an article racist–with no quotation marks–were it written by a European about non-Europeans?

It is amazing how our media LOVES to report on racism and goes looking for it and engages in interpretive heroics to impose it on rather mundane statements, but when real proto-ethnic cleansing speech appears, they can’t call it for what it is. I fear this will cause things to get much worse. Everyday white people are going to sense that the media is out to get them at some level. They will sense the disparity in coverage. They will begin to see the media an enemy. We are descending into something horrible, a kind of constant warfare between elites and one very large segment of the underclass.

There is a sickness in this country. White supremacy is a sickness. The left-wing version of it — denouncing whites as a race, even calling for ethnic cleansing — is a sickness. Why won’t the left stand up to it? You folks on the left, including you in the mainstream media who ignore it or dismiss it, you are feeding the white nationalist/white supremacist right!

UPDATE: A couple of readers point out, reasonably, that the use of quotation marks around the word ‘racist’ are meant to indicate that the word is a quote; no ironic distancing is necessarily there.

straight white male, may became target too…

This here is an interesting identity. It has shifted almost every generation. A decade ago I would not have counted as one, my grandmother is full Korean. My future children may count even though their mother will by a Sikh from Northern India. I spent a lot of time studying identity(comes from mine shifting) in politics, it shifts rather easy depending on political or social needs. Irish, Italians, Russians, Polish, Ukrainians, and Greeks did not count as white for a long time in American politics until it became convenient/necessary for it. In some regions of the United State Hispanic will count as white, while in others it will not to show the regional shift.

I bet in a few generations white as an identity will mean less than political affiliation or state/city of origin. These markers are starting to take precedent over the old race based one. While it will likely never go completely away, it is still will lose meaning over time. Just food for thought. A lot of things that were once concrete political thought, are now meaningless and new things take their place.

Marxist ideas and terminology have now become mainstream and ‘default’. I recently read some article about how Trump was elected because of ‘racism’. I would actually agree with the article’s author – he was elected because of what he (and marxists everywhere) define as racism. But its not really racism.

At many of his rallies, incuding the one in April celebrating his 100th day in office, he would mention his suspicions about Syrian refugees, then read the Al Jolson song “The Snake”, which is about a woman who took care of a sick snake, which then bit her. So, yeah, Trump has indeed specifically compared Muslims to vermin. He has said that Muslims are “sick”, falsely claimed that one quarter of the Muslims in this country think violence against Americans is justified in jihad, said that “Islam hates us”, falsely claimed that “hundreds of thousands” of Muslims poured into Jersey City, NJ streets to celebrate after the Twin Towers fell, repeatedly tried to enact a Muslim immigration ban. Sounds like he’s saying Muslims are an existential threat to civilization to me – after all, if not, why try to ban them? I have to agree with the Wet One. And while I took the trouble to provide examples, the fact that the Wet One did not, does not mean he or she is wrong and does not mean he or she is lying.

But I do apologize for assuming you were an alt-rightist, VikingLS. It is certainly an unpleasant thing of which to be unjustly accused.

Viking and others,
One of the interesting things about following this blog is seeing how people react when they’re proven to be wrong, in ways small or large. Gracious/not, apologetic/angry etc.

Still happy that Art Deco is gone.

@DRK

Trump has not tried to ban Muslims, most Muslim majority countries are not on the list.

Welcoming in Syrian refugees without knowing who they are is a bit like inviting in Germans in 1943 without knowing who they are. Trump has a point there. I will conceded the snake comparison.

No the Wet One DOES need to back up his/her claims given their gravity. Being a liberal does not excuse you from that.

I can make a very solid case that the Clintons have a long history of playing on white racism against blacks. If I just said “Hillary Clinton seems to hate black people, how long will it be before liberals rise up and massacre blacks?” I darned well better be able to make that case or people would, rightly in my opinion, say I was being hyperbolic if not outright lying.

Do you understand?

#6 Comment By Thrice A Viking On December 5, 2017 @ 10:03 am

DRK, I think you and The Wet One (if (s)he is relying on the Jolson song too) are making too much of an analogy. If one says that someone else is a female dog – or the son of one such – the speaker is not signifying that they really are of canine ancestry. It’s just a metaphor. I can’t see how Trump is really saying Muslims are vermin. That his words insulting to them, I’ll grant you. But it doesn’t reinforce The Wet One’s remark, at least not in my view.

@Zeno

Chain of events:

Rudy Martinez offends Rod, Rod posts abotu it.

The Wet One posts something suggesting the real problem is an obvious rising tide of Trump worshiping white supremacists on the right.

As a person at least nominally on the right I consider this at best gross hyperbole, if not outright dishonesty.

DRK apparently believes the Wet Ones accusation has merit and accuses me of calling the Wet One a lair, just because I disagree with him, and accuses me of being an alt-righter as well.

I am now offended because I called the Wet One dishonest because I think he’s dishonest, not because I disagree with him. (I regularly disagree with many people here I think are honest.)

“I will conceded the snake comparison.”

To clarify, I will conceded the snake comparison is comparing a group of people to animals.

Though again, I will point out that the whole refugee crises was a bit like coming into WW II in 1943 and presuming a large exodous of Germans were fleeing to escape the Nazis rather than an enraged Soviet Army who were justifiably furious.

#9 Comment By RES On December 5, 2017 @ 4:27 pm

Rod,
Is this fundamentally a white, European country or not? If not, then what is it? If you say that it is, what would that make you? OR
Why do you call “white supremacy” a sickness? How are you defining your terms? Your answer may go some way into identifying why the left will not denounce “their version of it.”
I do not consider someone (whomever that may be) who seeks to claim a country as his own, for his own people, pathological. Perhaps wrong. But NOT sick.

Welcoming in Syrian refugees without knowing who they are is a bit like inviting in Germans in 1943 without knowing who they are.

That was the argument made by Anglo conservatives in the State Department in 1938 for not letting Jewish refugees in from Germany. Some of them might have been Nazis.

(The analogy aside, I’m not strongly in favor of resettling refugees in the US because their part of the world is unsettled at the moment. We actually can’t take even half of those who are suffering, it doesn’t work well in general for us or the refugees and their children, and it takes the pressure off to fix things in their region of origin.)

Rudy Martinez wants domination for his emotional sub-ethnos in his local area. But cannot do this by democratic way. He wants racism implementation. Why ? Undemocratic environment, particular case of city madman, or aggressive sub-ethnos culture?

#12 Comment By Stas On December 9, 2017 @ 7:30 am

Trying to make civilian war in such state as Texas?! America has 12% of black immigrants. I think some Powers want you to kill your not guilty neighborhoods. Think first, act later!
