Average White American Guy wants his country back!

The average White guy

 

For this piece, I am the average White American Guy. You can call me WAG. I am from an average family on Long Island, who lived in an average house and was an average student who played sports. I finished High School and went to work in a factory. Every body had a job who wanted one. My uncles fought and one died in WWII. I hated what the Nazi's did from the photo's of concentration camps, and took a personal vow never to let that happen again.

 

I married an average white girl, because I didn't know any other kind. My government decided it was in the best interest of the country to stop communism from taking over the world, so they sent the army to fight in Vietnam, saying all Asia would go commie if we didn't. They drafted mostly poor kids, that meant a high percentage of minority kids.

 

Social activists decided the Gov. was wrong and took to undermine their authority. A lot of bitterness made them take over the Democratic Party, Big City Gov. and schools. At the same time Black activists saw a chance to improve their place in society.

When MLK said it was the American way, that everybody have a fair chance, reguardless of color, I agreed with him. But then the 1964 Civil rights Act made racism a consideration in all things social. States Rights were subject to Federal regulations, and social activists brought law suits and integration to everything. Schools were graded on % of students color, construction projects had to have a % of black companies.

 

Then women, who were a majority of the population, got special treatment written into law that they were special considerations. I couldn't find fault with a woman working the same as a man, should be paid the same!

 

But then it extended to promotions and opportunity. Now it wasn't enough to be fair. I had to let women and minorities get ahead of me in line. WAG (White American Guy) was told he was privileged! And that he had to accept the equality of the less talented.

 

A well spoken Black guy ran for POTUS, and white folks along with Black folks voted for him. He promised to bring America together, and we all wanted racial harmony.

My health insurance went up because it was only fair that the poor have equal access to care. My taxes went up because more people needed assistance. And racial disharmont went up because whites were hoarding priviledge.

 

So WAG decided to change things the American way, and form Tea Party rallies. But, we were called bigots and Nazi's. White haters who only wanted to retain priviledge. All I wanted was to live my life and raise my family as my father had!

 

Meanwhile real white supremacists who had been decimated years ago, by the FBI, began to talk about white pride and taking back America. This was what I wanted, but still I hated Nazi's and thought all people should be treated fairly.

 

LGBTQ activists saw an opportunity to appear normal, and demanded to be treated as Civil Rights victims. Not only that, MARRAGE, that had been considered the foundation of our society, was now open to any couple who wanted to butt fuck each other or lick a crotch! Every thing that WAG believed in was being challenged by people who called themselves PROGRESSIVES. But to WAG, this wasn't progress, this was taking away what he believed in.

 

So while Black lives Matter, and Gay rights, and free services, all burned police cars, broke windows, and looted stores. WAG, went to work, telling his friends to VOTE for TRUMP. He will make America great again. The Media and progressives bought Hillary the Presidency. But come election day, the WAG's used the system to take over.

 

Well the hate American Whites machine went into full production. Create crimes, blame Russia, Trump is crazy, demonstrate, demonstrate, demonstrate! Take down everything white. Destroy history of white domination of Blacks and minorities.

 

What happened to fairness and equal treatment? What happened to judgment of personality, not skin color!

Tear down all vestiges of states rights and white domination. Tear down the statues of white pride and Southern resistance to Liberal Government domination.

Down with Robert E. Lee, up with MLK. Lee park now is emancipation park. Change white named schools, but keep, MLK, Malcolm X and United Negro college fund.

 

Blacks can destroy Ferguson, and march against police, but whites cannot walk with torches or rally.

 

What the fuck? Maybe the Nazi's are right. We need to put down those who want to change society. Maybe the system doesn't work for WAG anymore. Maybe we need to tear it down and start again. White's killed the savages before. Maybe we need to do it again!

Don't assume I agree with this, because I don't. But understanding does not require agreement.  Our elected officials have let down our trust. It is time to take back the Democratic Party. Refresh the Republican party, and remove all racial and sexual preferences in our judicial system. Those with the most talent should get priority.
For our society to be the best, the best people must be able to do their best. We all have a place in this, and it shouldn't be mandated by delusional social activists.

No one likes to be discriminated against and now white people, especially white men are finding out what it feels like to be treated like trash, just because they happen to be white.
 
White people, especially white men have good reasons to be upset and I think the bulk of America, in all their politically correct zeal is overlooking the fact that it's just as wrong to kick the white guys just because they are white, as it was to kick minorities just because they weren't white.
 
I am amazed by how many so called righteous zealots somehow think they aren't racists when they do to other people what they are so sure was wrong, when it was done to them, (or their parents or other ancestors).  They claim to be enlightened but they're just a bunch of hypocrits.

Yes Riley. A perfect summation to what I wanted to say. One man's right is another man's loss. But the demonstrations go on. One group destroys a Confederate soldier statue. Can a cross burning be far behind? A bunch of morons are yelling at Trump Tower, can a White Power rally not be in the planning?
When will the self righteous realize they are starting fires that will destroy their home? I don't think they will, until some real blood is spilled! It is getting ugly folks.
Thank you Riley for seeing with clear eyes!
Only an un biased government can rule! Trump was right not to condemn anyone, but he caved to pressure. He is losing.

EXPAT, you could just as easily have been describing South Africa. Racially motivated crimes and government policies, propaganda, assaults on people and institutions, attacks on cultures and political opponents, looting, destruction of statues and now an increasing drive to dispossess a racial group in the name of "redressing past injustices". Of course, those who complain about the unfairness of it all and point out that it's just the same old wind blowing but from a different direction, then you are called sexist, patriarchal, racist and "privileged". Well, I have never known privilege or wealth in my entire life. I do know a great deal about discrimination, dispossession, harassment and surviving murder attempts though, say about 35 years' worth. If that's privilege and I have somehow benefited unduly from it, they can have it... Nice one, buddy.

The same happens in Europe by uncontrolled immigration. We haven't gotten as far as the US regarding PC and stuff, but it's coming. In Europe Germany is the driving factor for unisex, unithought and unidress, useless rules and more "equality" than possible.
 
Make us all same and destroy identity. Some people are aware of that and are dragged into the Nazi corner as a result.

Mircea and Stone. I understand that the loss of Individuality is an International problem. The delusional left thinks they can overcome mental, physical and sexual differences in people through laws and policing.
When you give something to someone that they didn't earn through merit, you are taking away something from someone that did  earn it. And resentment takes over. Enough redistribution by Government, and people are ready to fight the gov.
We all have a place in society, and fairness only exists in the minds of social dreamers. The one with the best aptitude should do the job, and we need to value the contribution of all. The guy who collects my trash, makes a better life for me, and I should respect that!

The average white guy has been screwed by the fascist system we now live in.  The financial and corporate elite backed by their political shrills has put the "blame" on people of color, gays, etc.  Funny those same people are also suffering under the same fascist system.

Jeanne. You and your delusion are the problem. You cannot see that I was talking about a compilation of white men who have been targeted to relinquish all they have built, to a collection of self entitled misfits.
You make it personal and about me, when it is actually about your social engineers who think they know how everyone else should live.
 My analogy was how every person has value in the service they perform. Not living in Thailand. How stupid!

A statue of Robert , Lee is being taken down and a statue of Martin Luther King is going up in Washington, D.C.
Confederate flags are coming down in Public Places, and American flags are being ignored by NFL players. Schools are being named for Civil Rights leaders, while Confederate leaders are being eliminated. Our currency will have a black woman on the most popular bill $20. She had nothing to do with Government or Treasury.
Every city in America has a Martin Luther King Boulevard running thru the ghetto. This is the replacement of one culture by another.

As I've said before the upper middle and middle class are being pushed down into the ranks of the working poor.  The working poor are being shoved into dire poverty.  All are more dependent upon the state than ever before.  No one sees much changing coming.  Everyone is finding a new life of poverty and we shocked over the increased hate and social ills.

And by the way the liberals that claimed Trump started this aggression and can stop it with some kind of speech are full of crap.  This would be happening with HRC in charge and the only difference would be is that her speech would have been written for her and she really would not have given a damn.  She already had gotten hers and now she would have been profiting off it.

Not saluting our flag sends the wrong message, they should choose some other way to display their protest effectively and gain public support, because their current behavior is anti-American and angers many.

Expat actually many people besides white men want their country back.  Tea party, conservatives, libertarians, etc. is not just made up of white men but also women, blacks, brown, slant eyed, and every religious and any other group of people that are defined as in the melting pot.    We want the laws of the land and the actions of the government officials to be judged by the Declaration of Independence the foundation of the nation.  The Revolutionary War only represented about 1/3 of the people with another 1/3 not supporting the crown.  When this is taken into consideration only the Civil War exceeds cost in lives and these two stand out significantly from the other wars.  Yes they knew as did those that wrote the Constitution knew that slavery violated the principles of the Natures Laws.   But they chose to kick that issue down the road.  It was addressed in the Civil War at a cost unexpected by the founders.  They saw that industrialization in England caused the development of the abolitionism that ended slavery except for the Islam countries.  But the cotton Gin invention gave life to slavery.  The children of the founders finally as they expected honored the Declaration of Independence.

Seen from the OUTSIDE I understand white Americans. You can't take the time of the 1800's into account anymore. The ones who live today are not responsable for Indian slaughter and slavery, as well as today's German population is not responsible for the holocaust.
 
And it's not about religion for the majority. And if - WHY does religion has a strong comeback ? Because people are feeling insecure and are full or fear.....job losses...they think that now the whites are the bad ones and all the rest are victims.
 
Are they ?
 
No. Why ? Because they're the same generation as everyone, and when ALL of them work towards a common goal it CAN work. But - some take other peoples as example and demand reparations for stuff that happened a LONG time ago. So they actually put their responsability on the shoulders of history. Once a victim always a victim - and profit from that.
 
The Jews have perfected that system (see Germany).
 
And now ALL of them hop on the same train.
 
Fact is that whites brought all those countries forward and developed them. If that was good or not is a philosophical question. But the world is like that.
 
So - seeing all the different mentalities and understandings what life is or should be about -
 
accusing the one or the other is bullshit. One cannot damn Western culture and wanting the comfort.
 
I see that there are discriminations concerning work and life in the US and Europe. But I also see when Will Smith gets millions for a movie or Jay-Z millions for a rap song...where's the discrimination there ?

Stone and Friedli,  these groups Tea party, conservatives, libertarians, etc. foundational beliefs agree with the Declaration of Independence.  They are from many religions and cultures.  This belief is what is meant by the melting pot. 
This is from a pre-Revolutionary War pamphlet, "Among the natural Rights of the Colonists are these: First, a Right to Life; secondly, to Liberty; thirdly, to Property; together with the Right to support and defend them in the best Manner they can. . . .  Every natural Right not expressly given up or, from the nature of a Social Compact, necessarily ceded, remains.   All positive and civil Laws should conform, as far as possible, to the Law of natural Reason and Equity.
As neither Reason requires nor Religion permits the contrary, every Man living in or out of a State of civil Society has a Right peaceably and quietly to worship GOD according to the Dictates of his Conscience." National Humanities Center:  Boston Committee of Correspondence, The “Boston Pamphlet,” 1772, publ. 1773, excerpts

These people had a completely different view of races and what a "human being" is. Although their ideas were ok, they considered that only for their own kind - not for the ones they conquered.
 
But as I say: Today is a different time. No race is worth more than another - we have different views on life and our existence, that's all.
 
But it doesn't help when the white guy is the boogeyman now, as I explained. Every race has its idiots and its geniuses. Time to understand that. And those PC guys who desperately try to create a human being which is outside of nature's principles are terribly wrong.
 
We're still animals. And you can't change that structure and the roles of each of the two genders by political means. Because humans need structure and defined roles, if not, they get lost in the long run.
 
In Cameroon we have those rules intact and they work. And the homo or transsexual or whatever is accepted as he is. He isn't maybe taken for full, but he's accepted. He's just "a special person, but ok". As the transvestites we have. No sweat, they don't hurt anybody.
 
Realism, you see ?

As I see it from here you're right. But you also have to admit that whites seem to be a favorite GENERAL target whenever a crime happens, when a white gets killed no sweat but when it's a minority guy cry out.
 
That happens in Europe.
 
When a Swiss commits a crime he gets convicted easily. When it's a refugee or immigrant from a poor country, it's "an unfortunate existence who went through hell and has an unfavorable past, so we have to take that into account".
 
And he gets psychological help and a free apartment and food.
 
The Swiss gets out of jail and probably never finds a job again.
Stone-Eater Friedli Added Aug 15, 2017 - 5:13pm
BTW: So you see....such a practice does not help that the Swiss is favorable to immigration. And then they call us Nazis or egoists when we say STOP to "immigration"....and we are fighting the EU and their tries to get us in line.

Stone & Friedli, you did not hear me or do not believe what I said.  CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERTARIANS THAT MAKE UP THE TEA PARTY BELIEVE IN EXACTLY WHAT THOSE PEOPLE THAT PUBLISHED THE BOSTON PAMPHLET.

You are saying Expat's "Average White American Guy" does not know what this country is to begin with so does not want the country back.  They want a country that never existed in reality but may exist in their minds.   
 
The country up until 1900 was that pamphlet.  Then the ideas that created the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution, the 100 years war and the Spanish Revolution came to America by way of the robber barons of the nation.  That wanted to pass their wealth down to future generations of their family so needed to create the class societies of Europe.  That means the transformation that has occurred.  The pres. are all wealthy or became wealth.  This was not the case before 1900.  Why?  The congressmen stay in congress for decades.  That was not the case before 1900.  Why?  They to are mostly getting wealthy.

The problem is that those average white American Guy are in the lower classes and only a very few will have the political capacity to move up to the top class.  The rest are canon fodder.  Be they black lives matter, Islamic radicals, gender radicals, nationalist, etc. they will all be canon fodder.

About saluting the flag, whenever I walked past it on my way to the bleachers on the parade ground after hours, I would brace, march, look left and salute. For the record, I was the only soldier in my unit who did this, and I'm a naturalized South African citizen. EXPAT, I'm with you on this one in a big way. When people are made to feel unwelcome in the country of their birth, they will leave and the place becomes poorer for it. One day, I will leave South Africa too and just like Romania, won't be looking back. Dispossession is the mark of beggars and the incompetent, who are too lazy to accept a hand up (not a handout) and too stupid to know what to do with it.

Gregory S. You make your own history to match your fantasy of victimization.  Mongolian hunters crossed the frozen bearing straight chasing game, and found an unpopulated land. The Anasazi and later Pueblo peoples who were here long before them lived in the South, where it was warm.
European Monarchies sent colonists to claim land for their kings. Bond slaves and criminals were used to supply labor. They were mostly white! As



 settlements grew, the Asian settlers called Indians by the colonists, were used by the different kings, French, British, Dutch hired the various tribes to fight for them.
The enterprising Spanish, who were busy looting South and Central America, sold the colonials Cattle, horses, pigs and Africans. This livestock was purchased by farmers both White and Black to work the fields.
 
Good Christians educated the Africans and gave them their GOD.
 
That is history Gregory. Not as you would like it, but unlike you I learned HISTORY with an open mind. Both North Africans and Portuguese with Brown Skin made fortunes selling Black agricultural workers.

So many great comments! I have been sick the last two days, or I would have participated. Also, Fox news has been off for an unknown reason, so I only have European and Al Jazeera news.
But perhaps that is good because all I see on Fox Internet is argumentation about who is right!
 
We need to stop the bullshit! America was created by White Christians. They did many things wrong, but gradually grew out of exploitation, and created a society where more people had a chance to use their talents, than anywhere else in the world.
 
Our house is now divided and it cannot stand. Will it take another Civil War to re unite us?
The left hand is clenched in a fist, and so is the right. Both are punching America in its head, Trump. To what end?
 
This racist nation elected a Black President! How did that happen? This sexist nation protects women's rights in every respect. This Islamophobic nation has 2,106 Mosques. How many Christian Churches in Saudi Arabia, ZERO.
 
Those who hate Trump, and believe our system doesn't work want to justify a coup d'état  because their ideology is losing.
The Media, what used to be the fourth estate now is a propaganda machine for the coup. 
The rigged election thing didn't work, so the left tried a Russian conspiracy, which is failing, and even want to claim Trump is CRAZY.
 
But the latest bloodshed is over changing the culture of America. They want Minorities and misfits, to be promoted over the decedents of the founders.
 
Black Lives Matter revolutionaries can march with protection from the Police, whom they want to Kill, or fry like bacon. But White marchers in Charlottesville are attacked by left Antifa and police do nothing.
An angry white guy runs a car into a crowd, just like a Somali Student did and it is national news. But the Somali was only reported on Fox.
There are Martin Luther King Blvd. in every ghetto, but confederate flags are torn down everywhere..
 
Stop the Crap. We are in the middle of a War to change the cultural identity of the United States!
Charlottesville, VA, wanted to remove the statue of  Robert E.Lee and rename the park , Emancipation Park.
If they wanted to end the symbolism of slavery, they could have erected a Statue of MLK in the same park and called it Progress park. But the idea is to eliminate the prominence of white people in the construction of the nation, not to show how far we have come.

You people need to turn off the television and get a grip on the multi-dimensional world outside mass media.
 
I don't have a TV and remember why, when I peruse threads like this.  No offense, Expat, but I believe in treating individuals like individuals, no matter what their race, gender, or hairstyle.  What's so hard about that? Life is fair if people are suited to their jobs, but creating jobs to justify a taxable paycheck is a waste of talent and money.  
 
I'm over the racism issue and have been for years. The media needs to get over it, too.  We are nasty to everyone indiscriminately. No one should take it personally.

 EXPAT  A lot of the fuel to the fire is removed if the identity politics is stopped. For example, defunding the social justice programs in US colleges that are training people to see identity politics as moral and necessary.

 
The social justice warriors are indoctrinated authoritarian liberals, holy warriors for liberalism. I'm not the first to say this; the fact that Sargon of Akkad (Youtube) was threatened after this video AND they went after his girlfriend is proof the liberal bullies are the problem.

Trying to re identify who we are, and how we got here, seems to me to be an extension of that identity need. People try to escape from reality by changing their perception. It is the other guy who his the problem, and if I can change his behavior, my problems will go away! Or if I can change the past, then the present will seem different.
SLAVERY was necessary to promote CIVILIZATION! I know most people will hate me for saying that, but the great  cities of Rome, Egypt, Greece were all built by slaves. Even Washington, D.C. was built by slaves.
But now SLAVERY is a SIN, so many want to remove all traces of it from our perception, much as the Taliban tried to wipe out the past of Buddhism from Afghanistan by blowing up the Great statues of Bamiyan.
I don't have an answer, other than to say people need to be respected for who they are, and what they do now! Other societies have tried to change the past, but the past is always with us as a reminder of what worked, and what didn't.

So, EXPAT...that's real news....so when will the new bhat be issued where, as you say: Our currency will have a black woman on the most popular bill.  Think our currency is still dollars and cents.  Maybe you got confused.

EXPAT claims: By diminishing the accomplishment of white people, the Progressives are forcing all white people to defend themselves-about time they did defend themselves.  Yeah, you "white guys" sat on minorities in this county for 200 years,and didn't apparently repress them enough!!  As Frank Zappa said in 1966, "I'm not black, but there are sure times I don't want to be white."

Yes Dannl. Michka can be quite amusing. He doesn't understand that I get paid in Dollars, USD. But he misses the point on many things.
 
The National Treasury is going to put a photo of a very ugly black lady on the $20 bill, to appease a myth. The underground rail road was run by abolitionists both black and white. But old Harriet played a very small part.
If they wanted to change culture, it should have been Obama. At least he was a Major figure in USA and as decent looking.
 
But just like BLM, reality means little!

I didn't sit on any minority. Did you, or do you know anyone who did? I worked my ass off for everything I got. 1964 Civil Rights was to entitle BLACKS and Women!

EXPAT gets paid in USD with his SSI.  Wow.  You and D anal have a lot in common, EXPAT.  Both of you are at one level or another. frauds.  You took your toys and left.  Now you're back and figure nobody can (or wants to remember) your big talk and fraudulent behavior, Thai dweller.  I didn't realize not having "the right picture" on money meant you couldn't spend it.  I'm sure you'd send any money with a pic of Harriet Tubman back to the mint, right?  A matter of "principle" no doubt... LOL

Expat,
I just saw your reply to my comment.  I do agree with your main points about individualism.  However, if you're not living in the US, you are getting an exceptionally distorted view through the media.  The media is fueling all this hatred and divisiveness.  People watch and believe, react with fear and loathing and add their own angst to the chaos.  
 
Marx said religion was the opiate of the masses.  Now television is the opiate.  The first thing an individual needs to do to reclaim common sense is to turn off the TV and start seeing the world in 3-D.  Learn to perceive reality directly and think for him or herself.
 
My view is not filtered through the eyes of cameras and political agendas backed by government propaganda and corporate advertising.
Katharine Otto Added Aug 24, 2017 - 9:35pm
Expat,
Who benefits most from special programs to benefit any group?  The government, especially government bureaucrats who control the money.  Government playing favorites only fosters more divisiveness.

Jeff. Your ignorance has no limits. Soon that ugly face will represent USA to the world. Remember the target="_blank">Susan B. Anthony dollar. The treasury has a billion that nobody wants.
I can imagine people around the world stapling two $10's together

Kathrine.

The exact opposite is true. I live in an International city. I converse with tourists from around the world everyday. (Mostly at the bar)
TV news is also from around the world. It is the US media that is distorted by the Big 6 owners. FOX has been cut off for two weeks, I can't find out why.
I get my info mostly from British and Australian sources.

EXPAT sez: Jeff. Your ignorance has no limits. Soon that ugly face will represent USA to the world-Gee, let's put Melanoma Trump's face on it, then, eh?  Who cares who has the "right" pic printed on money?  Just apparently you.  Once again, it won't spend the same?
EXPAT Added Aug 25, 2017 - 6:52pm
Once again, it won't spend the same?
That is a real possibility. I guess you missed the part about the Billion,  Susan B. Anthoney dollars sitting in the treasury that no one will accept!
Also, around the world different USD bills have different exchange rates.
I can see 2 $50's being worth more than 5 $20's.
EXPAT Added Aug 25, 2017 - 6:53pm
Oh. Remember the $2 bill?

You will never understand the world you live in!
You are convinced you already know it. Like I said, "Jeff. Your ignorance has no limits."

EXPAT, undoubtedly drunk from deciding the fate of the world in a bar somewhere insults: You will never understand the world you live in! You are convinced you already know it. Like I said, "Jeff. Your ignorance has no limits." -And YOU are still stinging from Autumn reJecting your "advice." Only EXPAT can see the way of the world since HE is a "political scientist."  HaHahahahaha! TALK ABOUT BEING FULL OF IT...
