ENEMIES OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION: THEODORE ALLEN - THE INVENTOR OF WHITE PRIVILEGE
PUBLISHED: 29th September, 2019 | By Richard Heathen
There’s much talk of “white privilege“ these days, mostly from the neon coloured hair, university neo-Marxist brigade of shrieking untermench. Indeed this concept has become all the rage today, paraded around by non-white identity groups as a justification for not measuring up to the expectations of living in a civilized society, or as a means of extortion to get any manner of material goods from the white majority population, whether that’s affirmative action placement in college’s and universities, preferential treatment when it comes to employment, special scholarships for school tuition, or just as an excuse to explain away their own inadequacies and life failures. For the minority populations of the West, this concept is the gift that just keeps on giving.
The question few people ask is, where did it come from? Where did this abomination of a pseudo-intellectual idea germinate?
Theodore Allen, a Jewish communist wrote the book The Invention of the White Race, where he posited that the white race was an invention of wealthy landowners to turn lower class whites against blacks and use the lower class whites as a buffer to protect the social status of upper class whites. According to his theory, the upper class calculatedly gave poor whites a superior social status to blacks in order to create a class divide, where poor whites would defend the existing social order to protect their higher social status, as compared to blacks. Being a card carrying member of the Communist Party USA, Allen’s theory is strictly Marxist dialectic, seeing everything in terms of class. Oppressor and oppressed. Apparently he actually believed that nobody would have noticed the physiological differences between Africans and Europeans if not for this elitist cabal.
According to Allen:
“[N]o instance of the official use of the word ‘white’ as a token of social status” prior to its appearance in a 1691 law.
“During my own study of page after page of Virginia County records, reel after real of microfilm prepared by the Virginia Colonia Records Project, and other seventeenth-century sources, I have found no instance of the official use of the word “white” as a token of social status before it’s appliance in a Virginia law passed in 1691, referring to “English or other white women.”
“When the first Africans arrived in Virginia in 1619, there were no ‘white’ people there; nor, according to the colonial records, would there be for another sixty years.”
So let me get this straight, in European colonial societies where everyone was of European descent, there was no need to differentiate between people who were white and non-white in complexion? Imagine that! Of course colonist coming from Europe would identify with their European nation of origin.
Allen, hilariously taught economics at the Jefferson School of Social Science, which was founded by the Communist Party USA (because communist countries are so well known for their successful economies). In 1964 he cowrote a series of articles outlining his concept of “white skin” privilege with Noel Ignatiev a fellow Jew, infamous for his anti-white statements and propaganda. Allen published his first pamphlet, Class Struggle And The Origin Of Racial Slavery: The Invention Of The White Race in 1975 detailing his theory of “white skin privilege”, where he outlined the struggles of American blacks brought over for the purpose of slavery. He published his two part magna opus The Invention of the White Race in the mid-1990’s
“Others living in the colony at that time were English; they had been English when they left England, and naturally they and their Virginia-born children were English, they were not ‘white.’ White identity had to be carefully taught, and it would be only after the passage of some six crucial decades”
So wait, people who were English, moved somewhere, had children, then their children identified as English? Stop the presses!!! It’s amazing that this is seen as any kind of insight by anyone.
We are supposed to believe that North Americans of European descent don’t have an ethnic identity because when different groups of European people’s moved to North America, they eventually began to breed together and build a nation, thus began identifying with each other and that nation, and then they noticed that they were vastly different from other groups around them, and began using the most obvious difference between them as a shorthand to identify the different groups?
Hmmmmm, it’s almost as if the act of different European peoples breeding together in a new land - a fledgling new nation, under completely different circumstances then their home nation and with close proximity to vastly different groups could give one a different perspective on their identity and their place in the world. Strange.
These people say that race, specifically the white race, is a social construct. Ok, if that’s the case, let’s see the media condemn and attempt to destroy the lives of Black Lives Matter activists? Or how about we just end all those affirmative action scholarships, and hiring practices? No?
While the various people’s of European descent are told that they have no ethnic identity the media, academia and every other mouthpiece of the establishment is actively racializing every other group imaginable.
It was only when Europeans came into close contact with races from other continents who were drastically different than them for a prolonged period of time, did they begin to make this designation of ‘white’, but this is probably because most of them had never even seen a non-white person before, people didn’t travel around as much in 1691.
Allen sees with the eye of the inner enemy, the cultural parasite. When he looks at the proud and great European peoples, he doesn’t see a great tapestry of races and nations each with their own history and culture, he just sees one great monolithic enemy. He helped popularize the idea of a single monolithic white race, then used that idea to attack any form of unique racial identity for people of European descent, why? For what purpose?
Well, imagine if people like Allen didn’t have that, imagine if they had to attack the British, the Germans, the Irish, the Italians etc? That would expend much more energy then attacking one target, and he probably would have gotten a lot more pushback from these groups by attacking their authentic European identity. This strategy has unfortunately worked because most people of European descent don’t feel “white”. They either identify with their civic identity, or if they have ties to their roots, they identify with their authentic European identity.
This is an unfortunate weak spot that the enemy has found, and in fact helped create. They have discovered a way to attack us collectively where we won’t fight back, why is this?
Throughout the 20th century, progressives worked to breakdown both the residual European identities of Americans, and of new immigrants and get them to accept the “American” identity. This new identity came complete with a load of racial baggage and an implicit acceptance of guilt over the slave trade, not to mention a significantly lighter historical and cultural heritage. By the end of the 20th century American identity, in regards to people of European descent, had been so hallowed out of anything of cultural or historical substance by both racial agitation/white guilt, and consumer capitalism acting as duel forces of global subversion. Thus creating the weak and rootless Americanism based on consumption and civics that we see today.
Another factor to consider is that for thousands of years the greatest threat to the nations and peoples of Europe, has been other nations and peoples of Europe. Very rarely has an enemy come to that great continent that has been an existential threat to all Europeans. More often it’s been the wars between European nations that have cause the greatest pain and greatest destruction to European peoples. The two world wars are the greatest example of an industrial scale, whole sale slaughter in all the history of warfare, and that was done to Europeans by each other. This doesn’t strike me as the actions of a group who identify as a single race or people.
In regards to the other young colonial nations like Canada, Australia, and NZ, the same issue applies, these nations lack the rich historical lineage of the European nations, and as such, they’ve been much easier to subvert. All the enemy has to say is “this is a nation of immigrants”, which seems superficially true to the historically ignorant, and emotionally sentimental modern man. Indeed, the greatest defence of Western Civilization is in the motherland, Europe, simply because of the deep roots, the rich history and heritage.
Even Adolf Hitler, who many in the 21st century look to as some grande icon of “white racism” didn’t have a pan European love for all whites. Hitler notoriously looked down upon Slavs. Part of his complaint was the Slavification of the duel monarchy of Austria-Hungary in is infamous work Mein Kampf. It’s established history that Hitler wanted to invade Eastern European countries to create Lebensraum or “living space” for the benefit of the German people, no one else. Presumably then, his plan would have been to displace, kill, or otherwise disenfranchise and remove the Slavic population who were in possession of that land.
The great philosopher Oswald Spengler believed race was formed by historical forces, wars, conflict, the land, and of course biology. This could be why most people of European descent don’t “feel” white. I think it also explains the historical grudges, regional differences, and any physiological differences, between European peoples. These differences may not seem like a lot today, as we are faced by groups vastly different, but these differences meant a lot to our ancestors, who would fight, kill, and die because of them. In his final book The Hour of Decision, Spengler referred to not a single monolithic white race, but to the white races, each with their own unique traits, temperament, and cultural character. It seems to me that Europeans make up various, distinct, unique and diverse groups of peoples. I’ve been to England and you can tell when you see someone who’s English heritage goes back to the roots of that once great nation. There’s no mistaking him for a Scandinavian, a Slav, a German, or a Mediterranean.
The concept of a monolithic and singular white race, is a relatively new one, at least when you put it in context of European history. It’s yet to have it’s baptism of fire. According to Spengler, races were formed as much through historical and spiritual forces as biology. Race based on only biology, he called ’zoological’ race, which was fit for examining horses and other livestock, but insufficient on it’s own, for the classification of men. In The Hour of Decision Spengler predicted a conflict brewing between the coloured races and the white races. He saw that while Europeans were putting down the sword and retreating into pacifist and utopian ideologies, the coloured races were picking it up. He predicted that if we continued down this road that we were on, it would end in disaster.
He predicted that there would be a final reckoning between the world of the white races, and the coloured races, as the non-white races were out for revenge and were driven by a primordial resentment, angry at their treatment at the hands of whites over the past centuries. Spengler believed that this reckoning would indeed be our hour of decision. Oswald Spengler published The Hour of Decision in 1933, looking at his prediction in 2019, it seems on track for fulfillment. If Spenglers prophecy comes to pass, and the sons and daughters of Europe prevail against the forces of chaos and destruction gathering against them, the “white race” will have had it’s historical baptism of fire…
