White People Keep Looking For Hitler Everywhere But In The Mirror
I use 'white people' in this sense. If that bothers you, please think about whether you’re comfortable yelling out ‘white pride’ in public. If you’re not, then examine that feeling closer, and renounce your own whiteness.
Be a race traitor, and join the human race. It takes time, I know, but think about it. I don’t identify as brown.
It’s easy to forget that before World War II, the biggest evil in the world was the Western Allies. America was a totalitarian nightmare for black people, and a big inspiration for the Nazis. The UK, France, etc were brutal, racist empires with their boots on the neck of the world. Hitler looked at these empires and, frankly, felt left out.
Hitler saw the looting and pillaging of colonialism and thought “What’s left for Germany? We got scraps.” As he said in Mein Kampf:
Hitler’s great project, which he announced from the beginning, was the colonization of subhuman Slavs. Eastern Europe was the closest he could get to colonies without crossing water, which seemed to terrify him. At the time, honestly, most Europeans would agree that these people, especially Russians, were ‘not quite white’.
Hitler’s great sin, really, was pushing his violence not just onto ‘sorta’ white people but onto white people directly, occupying France et al. This was pretty standard European aggression, the world was fair game to them, but it was unforgivable applied to Europe itself.
As Aimé Césaire said in his Discourse On Colonialism:
“At bottom, what [white men] cannot forgive Hitler for is not crime in itself … it is the fact that he applied to Europe colonialist procedures which until then had been reserved exclusively for the Arabs of Algeria, the coolies of India, and the n — of Africa.” (via)
Césaire, called this the boomerang effect, when colonial atrocities came home to roost. He said:
People talk about European values or European civilization but as Césaire says, “Europe is indefensible.” Hitler was not some European anomaly. He was just European values, turned inwards onto themselves.
As Césaire said in the 1950s, white people tolerated plenty atrocities as long as they were happening to non-white people. They were even proud of them. And you know what? It’s the same way still.
