Anti-racism has become a new intellectual racism

Racist! How many times have you read or heard this word in 2019? Actually, too many times says Italian journalist Francesco Maria Del Vigo.

    News agencies have repeated the term “racism” more than 2500 times, seven times a day in Italy. Racist has become an inflated, freeze-dried term, deprived of its meaning. The left use it as a club to silence everything on its right, indiscriminately blaming it on everything that goes wrong.

    The insult has become a crazy heterogenesis of sorts. It can be explained as the follwing conundrum : of course racism exists and must be avoided, but if we are all racists – as a good part of the radical intelligentsia claims – no one is racist because the term then loses its meaning.

    If one mentions Italians should be considered first, or the ports of the country should be closed to illegal entries, or affirm that the migratory flows should be regulated, or denounce that in the peripheries of Italian cities there is a security problem often linked to immigration, or note in an article the nationality of those who commit a crime or use the word “gypsy”, then you qualify as a racist

    Obviously this is a problem and the problem is not racism. The category of “racism” was clearly invented to shut up the opponent, to limit free speech because the users of the term do not have the strength to launch a debate which they would not be able to control.

    And the real paradox is precisely this: the intellectual racism of the anti-racists against the alleged racists.

    “Racist” is the scarlet letter to be stuck on the opponent’s forehead to delegitimize him or her, to remove any political viability they may have and to shun that person from the restricted traffic area of ​​the public debate.

    Those who benefit from this lexical and ideological brew are the real racists, who end up camouflaging themselves in the shapeless mass of the “widespread racist”, the public enemy invented ad hoc by the left to give themselves some legroom to advance globalism.

    Italy is the country of common sense the “racists” complain, common sense that they hope in 2020 will allow them to forget, at least for a while, about the false racism emergency in order to deal with more serious things facing them on a daily basis.

    Greta Thunberg has also used the insult, claiming that the “climate crisis” is about fighting the “colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression”.

    In an op-ed published in Project Syndicate, Thunberg said: “Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it [the climate crisis]. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities.”

    Thunberg said that her goal was “to change everything”.

    Another one of the eurogreens supporting Thunberg is Yanis Varoufakis, the former Greek Finance Minister. Varoufakis is a superstar of the socialist far-left and part of the Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25). The objectives of DiEM25 include blending Europe’s “diverse political traditions — Green, radical left, liberal — in order to repair the EU”. By “repairing” Europe they mean expanding the role of global government via the same vague notions of “anti-racism”.

    According to Varoufakis, a key part of the new socialist plan for Europe “will require recreating European institutions and a political economy that includes a massive Green New Deal or similar strategy”.

    The broader population of workers and middle-class voters are being taken for a ride, argues Canadian journalist Terence Corcoran.

    “Accepting that climate change is a real global problem to be solved does not mean abandoning the benefits of market capitalism,” he says. In the meantime voters are being policed by the leftist lexicon brigade.

    The Green New Deal socialism will never happen, at least not in the United States. “There’s no evidence that any government is remotely capable of governing on the scale that they [the globalists] are talking about. The result would be unimaginable levels of unnecessary secondary consequences,” noted Arthur Brookes.

    Also it is not possible to build a wind turbine without one to two tons of copper and cement to hold it down. Similarly, solar panels cannot be made without aluminum and glass, which is made with sand which is mined. And racism has nothing to do with that reality.
