Whiteness: The Original Sin
a book by Jim Goad
(our site's book review)
The Amazon blurb says that In 50 short, sharp, incisive essays, Jim Goad examines why the idea of being white has become the modern version of the unpardonable sin.
Goad's work examines American culture, often popular and political culture. His early work reads anti-politically correct and as shock value, while his later work, like The Redneck Manifesto, and journalism contributions have marked Goad as a political and societal commentator. With a circulation of 13,000 Goad's self-published magazine ANSWER ME! sought to upset politically correct thinkers by covering subjects about race and feminism.
In The Redneck Manifesto: How Hillbillies Hicks and White Trash Became America's Scapegoats, Goad shows how discrimination in the United States is focused around social class, not race; rich elites blind the poor, and cause them to fight one another
In Whiteness: The Original Sin, Goad makes the case that the leftists' anti-white campaign is like a caricature of political correctness. It is at least as hateful as the alt-right's racist dogma. Somehow they've forgotten that two wrongs don't make a right. The 'Social Justice Warriors' of the Antifa thugs—the leftists' attack dogs—are just the Left's version of the KKK. Goad, an elite hating exconvict, says many hateful, profane, misogynist, and violent things. His expletive-filled rants are unfortunate, reminding us of nothing so much as Trump's impulsive Tweets that often get him into trouble. Trump's Access Hollywood tape debacle wherein he made exceedingly lewd remarks about women and boasted of his ability to get away with sexual assault nearly killed his chances of becoming President, just like Goad's beating a woman half to death and showing no remorse got him 2.5 years in prison and nearly wrecked his career.
The foundational symbol of the Resistance is the pussy hat, reminding everyone of Trump's crude crotch-grabbing boasts he made on NBC’s Access Hollywood
Goad's 1997 book The Redneck Manifesto: How Hillbillies Hicks and White Trash Became America's Scapegoats explores the idea of poor whites celebrating their heritage similar to poor African Americans, and that discrimination in the United States is focused around social class, not race. His thesis is that the rich elite blind the poor, and cause them to fight one another, instead of working together for their mutual benefit. The New Church Ladies: The Extremely Uptight World of 'Social Justice'," a collection of essays, was published February 13, 2017 by Obnoxious Books. Goad's opinion of political correctness is similar to us and most of the books reviewed on this website and 80% of our citizens. (Source: Jim Goad, Wikipedia) See articles.
In Goad's words, "According to the modern moral framework as it's dictated to us by academia's huddled rodents, the worst possible thing anyone can be is a racist. We are also increasingly lectured that all white people are racist—so racist, they don't even realize it, even when they're trying their best not to be racist. Therefore, it's not a giant leap to assume that under the current moral Reich, the worst possible thing anyone can be is a white person. In Oklahoma—'one of the last places in America one might assume it's still at least somewhat OK rather than innately sinful to be white'—a minor scandal erupted when a high-school teacher was recorded on a smartphone camera ululating thusly to his students: 'Am I racist? And I say yeah. I don't want to be. It's not like I choose to be racist, but do I do things because of the way I was raised. To be white is to be racist, period.'"
According to the modern moral framework as it's dictated to us by academia's huddled rodents, the worst possible thing anyone can be is a racist; of course, the leftist anti-white liberals are more racist than the alt-right
Not to be outdone in the realm of ethnomasochistic virtue-signaling, a white Afrikaner writes that 'Whiteness is like herpes'
The virtue-signaling contest was on—let us all denigrate all things white as we sing the boundless glories of all things black, and let's make sure everyone sees our wonderful virtue-signaling . . . OUR CULTURE IS SICK TO THE CORE!
But "Whiteness Studies" came along to shame whites into submission via the worst perversion of education yet. There's a group called Race Traitor whose goal is to "abolish the white race. And, as Goad assures us: "such loathsome, idiotic, masochistic mental cases are what pass for academics these days." Since whiteness is only accepted as a synonym for "evil," the anti-American—possibly seditious—academic discipline known as "whiteness studies" is a nonstop attack against all things white. As David Horowitz once told a reporter: "Black studies celebrates blackness, Chicano studies celebrates Chicanos, women's studies celebrates women and white studies attacks white people as evil."

Many modern white people are in the clutches of a massive collective guilt complex the likes of which the world may have never known. We wonder if there is an historical precedent to subpopulations of citizens being brainwashed into self-hatred merely because they're more successful and technologically advanced than other groups. Whites have "unearned privilege" for which, if they are following the tenets of the PC liberal narrative, they should feel shame and guilt. There is no shame in being white, says Goad. There is only shame in ever thinking there was.
"Writer Chris Mohney is one of the goodwhites. He said that anti-white racist Sarah Jeong's old tweets 'make fun of white people in various ways,' yet Mohney focuses on the ones about how white people sunburn easily and might have to live underground like goblins."

"The liberal white coastal ELITES are the ones who are statistically far more likely to be descended from the white slave-owning class than they are from the far more numerous descendants of white indentured servants, yet they've successfully scapegoated poor whites and left them bearing the brunt of black resentment. These are the ones who'd like to imagine that Klansmen and skinheads and cops are roaming the streets indiscriminately beating and murdering nonwhites. They are either ignorant of the modern statistics regarding interracial violence or they'll find some half-assed sociological excuse to justify them. Living largely as they do in gated and secure communities, they rarely get their hands dirty with such trifles, anyway.
The liberal white coastal ELITES are so opposite from the fly-over country's ignorant gap-toothed hillbilly redneck badwhite bubbas clinging to their guns and religion, the U.S. needs to devolve into 3 countries: East Liberal-land, West Liberal-land, and Bubba-land
"John Derbyshire has subsequently fused 'goodwhites' and 'badwhites' into all-purpose terms describing the primary combatants in America's 'Cold Civil War':
'...that is, the everlasting struggle between, on the one hand, the Progressive goodwhites who dominate our country's mainstream culture—the Main Stream Media, the universities and law schools, big corporations, the federal bureaucracy—and, on the other hand, the ignorant gap-toothed hillbilly redneck badwhites clinging to their guns and religion out on the despised margins of civilized society.'
Another blogger sketches out a rough delineation between goodwhites and badwhites:
Goodwhite: a White involved in an inter-racial marriage, with mixed-race children, who vigorously defends and promotes race-mixing, who is very pro-Jewish, and who is suitably hostile to White nationalism. If on 'the right'—a good cuckservative.
Badwhite: a White who disapproves of race-mixing, is skeptical of Jewish behavior, and supports White nationalism." (Source: The Great White War, Jim Goad, Takimag)
Badwhite: a White who disapproves of race-mixing, is skeptical of Jewish behavior, and supports White nationalism
Blogger Luke Ford looks at all this goodwhite and badwhite stuff like this:
"Only the 'bad whites' for the most part do not realize they are in a war. The good whites (Liberals, Leftists, Feminists, Democrats, SJW, SWPL hipsters, Atheists, LGBT, pro-choice advocates, gun control advocates, etc.) are seeking to destroy any and all political power and influence still held by the 'bad whites’ (Conservatives, Republicans, Libertarians, Christians, red-necks, white nationalists, gun rights advocates, pro-life advocates, heterosexual white males, et al), so the 'good whites' will be able to completely have their way in transforming America into a country they believe will be more 'just and equal'. With them firmly in charge of it all, of course."
Hillary thinks of the elite-hating badwhite hillbilly bubbas as the basket of deplorables

Goad's book, The New Church Ladies: The Extremely Uptight World of "Social Justice", is very in-your-face and politically incorrect: "Hey, you! That’s right—YOU! Do you constantly find yourself grievously offended by racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia, hatred, patriarchy, toxic masculinity, rape culture, and bigotry? When you look around, do you find nearly everything 'unacceptable' and 'problematic'? Do you take psychiatric medication to help you cope with all the world’s injustice? Do you walk around wearing diapers on your heart all the time? Are you relentlessly seeking 'safe spaces' to get away from all the 'microaggressions' that life unfairly hurls at you? Do you cry when people say mean things? Do you classify anyone who disagrees with you as a 'fascist,' a 'bigot,' a 'hater,' a 'white supremacist,' and a 'Nazi'? Do you believe that 'hate speech' is different than 'free speech'? Do you often mistake mere words for literal violence? Do you think that people should be beaten up, jailed, or even murdered for harboring or expressing 'right-wing' thoughts? Have you ever chanted in public with a group of likeminded, politically motivated individuals? Do you think that anyone who disagrees with you should lose their job? Have you ever told anyone to check their privilege? Are you convinced that you’re on the 'right side of history'? Do you feel 'oppressed' even though you’ve never worked an honest day in your life and still receive handouts from your parents and the government? Do you feel that 'social justice' can be objectively defined and ultimately achieved? Do you think straight white males are the primary source of all human suffering throughout global history? If so..." (Source: The New Church Ladies: The Extremely Uptight World of "Social Justice", Jim Goad, Amazon)
Charlottesville riots where White supremacists clash with police and Antifa
"In his blistering new book, Whiteness: the Original Sin, the American redneck provocateur and white working-class columnist for Taki Magazine, Jim Goad, shows how this is now part and parcel of an all-out war on white people – waged largely by white people, confusingly, although with the support of many non-whites. The defence is that such outrageous policies aim to ‘increase diversity’ or ‘abolish white supremacy’ . . . As the diversity project begins to fail, suicidal left-liberalism to totter, and nationalist populism to rise, so the ‘liberals’ become ever more tyrannical. . . . And if there is racial oppression in the US today, it is manifested in the staggering levels of black-on-white crime. Goad cites statistics from the US government showing that in one year, the number of black-on-white rapes numbered 37,460. The number of white-on-black rapes was listed at a slightly embarrassing ‘0.0 per cent’." (Source: Whiteness: the Original Sin by Jim Goad, Christopher Hart, Salisbury Review)
Goad says he's not surprised to see the rise of Trump. 'I think the left really overplayed its hand with identity politics'
"Goad says he's not surprised to see the rise of Trump. 'I think the left really overplayed its hand with identity politics,' he says. In a post titled 'Smells Like Victory,' penned Sept. 16, 2016, Goad predicted Trump would win the election on the backs of 'a huge brooding swath of Americans out there who know that the media despises their very existence.' 'A Trump victory would be a deathblow to the media and political establishment,' he wrote. 'That's a good thing. A Trump victory would also lead to massive collective depression and rampant suicidal ideation in all the people that I genuinely hate.' As a political stance, this is hardly better than utter nihilism. But 20 years after it was written, The Redneck Manifesto is an eerie harbinger of the seething white resentment that now fuels a part of the American right."

Liberal fanatics claiming that white people are born racist and evil dehumanizes them like Nazi Germany did to the Jews—they're acting like the National Socialists of Germany in the 1930s and 1940s—will fascistic leftist stormtroopers soon be goosestepping their way to our doors?
Claiming that white people are born racist and evil dehumanizes them like Nazi Germany did to the Jews. So anytime someone charges the whites as being innately racist they're acting like the National Socialists of Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. The liberals are going off the rails with such ludicrous claims. Their entire political correctness fad and the extremist liberal narrative itself are wrong, anti-human, foolish, racist, ugly, and hateful.
Hitler knew that to unite a people behind a cause, it was important to find an enemy—a villian to hate, a villian to blame their problems on, a scapegoat. Under the current Leftist moral Reich, white males are the Jew villians to blame and hate. Scary thought: what's next?
