I have had the distinct pleasure, in the last few days, to discover Radish Magazine. Like all of it’s Dark Enlightenment/Neoreaction counterparts, Radish delivers some searing critique of modernity and the lies that we’ve all been sold to justify, well, the horror that modernity has consistently unleashed upon the world for the better part of two centuries. Radish has a helpful tab titled “Where Do I Start”, which lead me to the issue “Slavery Reconsidered.” It’s an interesting account of what we assume the reality of slavery to have been in the United States, and what the *actual* reality probably was. (Turns out, most everyone was fairly contented with the situation, except for a bunch of people who lived a long ways away).
Regardless, that issue had some of the most horrifying words I’ve ever read, ever, from anyone on the Left.
They belong to Amanda Kijera, who is apparently about as true as a true leftist can get. Anyways, I realize the post these words are coming from are four years old, but again, they are perhaps the most horrifying thing I’ve ever read from the Left. Kijera, you see, went to Haiti shortly after the devastating earthquake in that country in 2010, in an attempt to dispel myths about the rampant violence being committed against women in Haiti, post-earthquake:
Two weeks ago, on a Monday morning, I started to write what I thought was a very clever editorial about violence against women in Haiti. The case, I believed, was being overstated by women’s organizations in need of additional resources. Ever committed to preserving the dignity of Black [sic] men in a world which constantly stereotypes them as violent savages, I viewed this writing as yet one more opportunity to fight “the man” on behalf of my brothers. That night, before I could finish the piece, I was held on a rooftop in Haiti and raped repeatedly by one of the very men who I had spent the bulk of my life advocating for.
It hurt. The experience was almost more than I could bear. I begged him to stop. Afraid he would kill me, I pleaded with him to honor my commitment to Haiti, to him as a brother in the mutual struggle for an end to our common oppression, but to no avail. He didn’t care that I was a Malcolm X scholar. He told me to shut up, and then slapped me in the face. Overpowered, I gave up fighting halfway through the night.
Black men have every right to the anger they feel in response to their position in the global hierarchy, but their anger is misdirected.
Women are not the source of their oppression; oppressive policies and the as-yet unaddressed white [sic] patriarchy which still dominates the global stage are. Because women—and particularly women of color—are forced to bear the brunt of the Black male response to the Black male plight, the international community and those nations who have benefitted from the oppression of colonized peoples have a responsibility to provide women with the protection that they need.
I went to Haiti after the earthquake to empower Haitians to self-sufficiency. […] Not once did I envision myself becoming a receptacle [!] for a Black man’s rage at the white world, but that is what I became. While I take issue with my brother’s behavior, I’m grateful for the experience.
This literally is one of the most tragic, and as stated already, terrifying things I’ve ever read coming from the Left. What have you wrought, leftists?
What have you wrought, leftists, when this young woman, so blind with the Cause, was completely unprepared for the attack that occurred to her because your twisted vision of reality made it so? What have you wrought leftists, when this young woman WRITES SHE IS GRATEFUL FOR BEING RAPED. What have you wrought, leftists, that this young woman doesn’t see the perpetrator of her crime as the problem, but rather some mythical white oppression as being the cause?
What have you wrought, leftists, when, as Radish points out, Haiti had gone from a jewel of a colony to the place we know now, the poorest country in a hemisphere? A place where rape was rampant in the wake of a natural disaster, and your true believer wandered into that time and place thinking that *couldn’t* be true, because it must be The Patriarchy, or that White Oppression making people report something awful was happening, rather than it just being a reflection of reality? When the left meets the results of the left. Good times y’all!
As the father of a daughter, I can’t even imagine trying to wrap the idea of my daughter being raped, and learning my daughter WAS GRATEFUL because of your retarded leftist ideals of the “noble savage” or some ridiculous bullshit.
This is why, more and more, dear leftists, you find people scoffing in your face when you tell them they’re the evil, ignorant, hateful, insensitive, yadda yadda yadda ones anymore. Because more and more, people realize, either from a study of history, or hell, even just paying attention to the currents of thought, like Ms Kijera’s above, that your system is insane. Insane to start with, insane in implementation, and insane in it’s repercussions.
The horror!….The horror!
