I don’t even know where to begin …

The paragraphs below are from an article that was allegedly  published by the Huffington Post and then withdrawn.

I read discussion about the essay on ZeroHedge and followed the link to an archived copy from which the text below is an excerpt.

Are you concerned about the end of free speech by the alt-left at Berkley?  This is much more sinister.  You will have to decide for yourself how to act if this proposal is ever seriously considered.

The progressives and all their social-justice-collectivist allies are in a panic that their century of control and plunder may be ended.

Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?

Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa’s biggest cities.

If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world. The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008. This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed.

At the same time, a denial of the franchise to white men, could see a redistribution of global assets to their rightful owners. After all, white men have used the imposition of Western legal systems around the world to reinforce modern capitalism. A period of twenty years without white men in the world’s parliaments and voting booths will allow legislation to be passed which could see the world’s wealth far more equitably shared. The violence of white male wealth and income inequality will be a thing of the past.

Some may argue that this is unfair. Let’s be clear, it may be unfair, but a moratorium on the franchise for white males for a period of between 20 and 30 years is a small price to pay for the pain inflicted by white males on others, particularly those with black, female-identifying bodies. In addition, white men should not be stripped of their other rights, and this withholding of the franchise should only be a temporary measure, as the world rights the wrongs of the past.

A withholding of the franchise from white males, along with the passing of legislation in this period to redistribute some of their assets, will also, to a degree, act as the reparations for slavery, colonialism, and apartheid, which the world is crying out for to be paid.

This Huffington Post article is archived in the WayBackMachine.

The following is a comment by Doug Casey from the ZeroHedge post:

But it goes deeper than that with this insane article. What these people really hate is Western Civilization and everything it represents. The question is: Why do these people think it’s virtuous to discriminate against white males? White males are largely responsible for Western Civilization. Which is shorthand for things like individualism, free markets, free thought, science, literature, industry, and about everything that’s allowed mankind to rise out of the muck and look to conquer the planets.

That’s what this article really hates.

So, it’s fascinating not so much that somebody wrote an article as stupid as that. But that a large outlet like Huffington would actually publish it. It’s a sign of how degraded things are. I’d say the author suffers from a serious psychological aberration. The editor who posted it is clearly a graduate of some PC US university, probably a major in Gender Studies.

It’s too bad that they took it down because it should be put on display, as a warning. Unless they repost it in The Onion.

    Is anyone really surprised? Have we become so complacent we refuse to recognize and accept the way of the world? How many lessons in history does one need to review before we will learn from them?

    Our country is being demolished right before our eyes and yet almost nothing is being done to stop it. In fact, more often than I’d like to admit, we help it. From massive third world immigration to open borders and “free trade” we are being replaced and will be erased unless we work together and find the courage to resist and then stop it.

    Please tell me what non-European country in which you would like to settle yourself and your family? Personally, I can’t think of one either and with Europe following the same path we are on there isn’t much left to choose from.

    The founders spelled it out but we seem to think it no longer applies….US and OUR posterity. Exactly whom do you think they had in mind? I realize this isn’t politically correct but unless you can point out which third world group you want running our country it’s time to ignore the utopian fantasy of “none of this matters” and accept the way of the world.

    I hope no idiot carpetbagger will claim the recognition and reality of human existence is “racist” or somehow “White supremacist” for it is not, it is merely accepting the fact that demographics are destiny and we are in danger of being out voted and thereby ruled for foreigners with which we share no genetic heritage and do not have our, nor our families, best interests in mind.Take a look at the former Rhodesia or what is left of South Africa and tell me it can’t happen here.

    We were watching the riots after the Rodney King verdict, yes it was a criminal act on the part of the police, but there were 13 Whites KILLED for simply being White and who knows how many were dragged from their cars and beaten. The “documentary” was in fact little more than a black wash excusing the looting, rioting, beatings, and murders as somehow justified. No mention of the 30,000 plus rapes perpetrated upon White women at the hands of Africans in America each and every year, no mention of the countless robberies, assaults, etc., it was if none of it mattered and indeed it does not when one is trying to excuse such behavior.

    Imagine if Whites had rioted after the O.J. verdict and murdered 13 Africans in America? How about Whites dragging them out of their cares and beating them simply for being black? Does anyone thing it would have been excused because of an idiotic verdict that nearly everyone agreed was absurd?

    Personally, I don’t give a damn what anyone calls me, as a man I have a duty to defend my family and provide and environment where they can live in peace. The change to our immigration policy in 1965 along with the absurd idea that government has the right to destroy freedom of association along with property rights has made that nearly impossible in many areas of the country. Combine those with forced integration, housing vouchers, mandate voting districts, etc. etc. etc. and government isn’t complicit it is working to destroy us.

    All I am saying is we need a country in which we can keep for OURSELVES and OUR posterity, just as the founders intended. A place where we can be secure and live in peace. Denying the reality of the world while every other group accepts it and then uses our foolishness against us won’t make it a reality.
