James Howard Kunstler has noticed this blog. He says, “this guy doesn’t get me at all. I’m not against white people… I’m just against white people who are against other people”
Come on, please. I’ve followed Kunstler for around five years now. I have four of his books: Long Emergency, Home From Nowhere, Geography of Nowhere, and World Made By Hand. This is a self deception.
It is clear that Kunstler hates White suburbanites, the White lower classes, and White social conservatives whom he associates with the car culture. A quick search of his blog will turn up all sorts of abusive rhetoric about these groups. If I used similar language to attack ghetto blacks or shtetl Jews, I would be called a racist and an anti-Semite.
There is an important difference though. I’m willing to admit that I am prejudiced against Jews. Kunstler should be honest and admit that he is prejudiced against White people. He should admit that he would never use such rhetoric to attack blacks or Hispanics.
It is okay to admit that you just don’t relate to certain groups of people. This is perfectly human and natural. Why deny the obvious?
Note: This blog agress with JHK on the major issues of Peak Oil, the car culture, suburbanization, and the sordid culture of the White underclass. We just think his writing would be more enjoyable if he acknowledged his Europhobia.
