One of the definitions of “troof” in Urban Dictionary is “truer than true”, implying a meta-truth transcending mere facts. As the mere facts pile up in the racially charged shooting death of Michael Brown by officer Darren Wilson, the truth appears to squarely support the narrative that the officer did not abuse his force in this particular incident. As with the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, the Black community didn’t wait for the facts of the case to be revealed over the course of days and weeks following the incident. The Black community, including the President of the United States and his Attorney General, reached their verdict [white guilt] and meted out their punishment [black unrest].
The objective truth is beside the point, as a mythic “troof” in the Black ghetto is that white-on-black profiling and police brutality is rampant, having reached a crisis level at which rioting and mayhem are proportional responses.
The Southern Midwest has always been America’s worst place for racial relations, and we can expect these episodes to occur more frequently in St. Louis, Indianapolis, Louisville, and Cincinnati than elsewhere. We hillbillies lack the uneasy tradition of muddling through racial issues that the South has earned and we also lack the Yankee idealism and eagerness to engage in post-racialist posturing and outreach. Most importantly, perhaps, we lack jobs and the resources to effectively self-segregate our communities.
Just across the river, nearly a hundred years ago, East St. Louis featured perhaps the most vicious anti-black riot in American history. Then, as now, rumors and “troofs” rooted in overarching demographic and economic tensions, overshadowed the mere facts on the ground. Then, as now, the rioters achieved nothing but injuring the innocent, destroying their own community, setting back their goals, and humiliating themselves. Those riots of yesteryear did nothing to stop the St. Louis region from being overwhelmed by black migrants from the Deep South, just as the current riots will do nothing to staunch the growth and militarization of our police state.
Many White American identitarians and supremacists see this as an opportunity for polarization, but they fail to appreciate just how little group consciousness their fellow whites have and how unthreatening and irrelevant black riots in black neighborhoods are to them. All this will achieve is shepherding the growth of the police state, swelling as necessary to keep America’s growing racial strife in check. As the economy continues to squeeze labor and service workers, and austerity initiatives close the welfare and relief safety valve, America’s due for more long, hot summers of low-level riots and unrest.
Of course, this is only a concern for Americans. It only matters to those who still hold out hope for the redemption of this regime and its seething rainbow mob of alienated consumers packed into crumbling urban hovels. I couldn’t care less how the white and black people of Missouri muddle through their web of racial resentments and struggle to reconcile their irreconcilable problems and perspectives. Best of luck to all of them. I don’t quite get how the Cosmic American experiment in cramming every identity and religion in the world into the same neighborhoods and bedrooms is going to pay off, but it’s not my problem.
The future for our people is post-American. There may well remain a “United States” government lumbering over our heads for generations to come, but that doesn’t necessarily define us. The Amish don’t really care whether their plot of soil lies in Canada or the United States; they’re Amish. Wherever Orthodox Jews are to be found, they’re Jews first and foremost, before their “national” identities. They’re educating their own children, creating their own music and culture, employing one another in their own economic niches, and even growing their own food. They existed long before “mass society” and will exist long after this mass society implodes on itself.
It’s fun to comment on and critique American society and culture; and I’ll continue to do it. But I do it with the spirit of a foreign policy journalist observing a different country. I’m not on the side of “white people” in Ferguson, Missouri. They’re not my people. I’m not “in solidarity” with them. White Americans are welcome to become my people, but who can actually side with and support them when they, nearly down to every last man, stand opposed to everything I stand for, having more in common socioculturally with the black rioters than with myself. They support gay marriage, shrug off abortion, endorse the Zionist war machine, reject “organized religion” in favor of vapid “spirituality”, and embrace a future where their identity is disintegrated into the globalist melting pot.
The Ferguson riots are already winding down. They didn’t go viral, as some feared (and others hoped). Some leftist agitators from out of state are trying to transform this spontaneous outburst of racial resentment into a coherent Leftist political vehicle, but they’re wasting their time. The Leftists are seeing this event in 20th century terms, as part of some nascent political movement which has the potential to grow into a useful mass movement for them to direct. Changes in transportation, communication, politics, and military strategy guarantee that these sorts of episodes will remain limited to rather localized outbursts which will be corralled and controlled by police state technology.
Regardless of whose side you’re on, the state will guarantee that there will be no overt race war. There will be racial friction, and brief flare-ups, but mass society is fully and effectively controlled by the State. The future doesn’t belong to mass society, though. Even the irreligious multi-racial mob will eventually splinter away from mass society into insular ideological and religious subcultures in due time. To struggle in terms of voting, influencing the masses, appealing to mass governments, and wrangling with mass media is to struggle in 20th Century terms. The future belongs to those with the foresight and will to leave America without actually leaving it, abandoning this country and its warped sense of “troof” for the organic and perennial truths which will nourish and sustain us as the country gradually splinters and falls apart in the background of our lives.
