The Hunt for The Great White Defendant

On the day of the Parson’s Green terror attack Sadiq Khan, London’s Muslim mayor, suddenly surfaced to accuse the Tories of underfunding the police and thus contributing to the rise in terror attacks in London. Khan, a grey man after Boris Johnson’s spectacular term, has always been keen to put terror attacks on the same footing as muggings, murders, burglary and drug dealing, suggesting they are an inevitable part of the rich pattern of normal city life rather than a religious war into which more and more Muslims will be drawn.

Similarly a spokeswoman for the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (an EU boondoggle) on Channel 4 News Friday was keen to emphasise the bad effect such attacks might have on the far right, the implication being that although right wing factions have not yet taken to bombing, burning or beheading people, they are just waiting an opportunity. It is as if in the Second World war each raid by the Luftwaffe was followed by warnings about the RAF.

This is what the journalist Tom Wolfe called in the sixties, ‘The Hunt for the Great White Defendant’. The left, ever since capitalism stole the working class vote from them, have like Captain Ahab in Moby Dick been searching the political seas for their own monster. He will be white, male Christian and conservative. It is why, whenever there is a bombing, the BBC and the entire left, holds its breath for as long as possible, hoping against hope the bomber might be him. It gives us some idea of how the factions will line up in what may be an inevitable confrontation between Islam and and the West.

  1. You may argue self-interest but I think it’s a mistake to read this racially rather than psychologically. There is nothing an advanced leftist likes better than to admire himself in the mirror of (what he takes to be) his conscience. He ornaments himself with proofs of his broad-mindedness. Accusing his own is such a proof. Blaming the happy as not rigorously just is another such proof. White people are the de facto but not the necessary target here.

    A defensive posture keeps one from knowledge of the foe. The foe here has interesting articulations. Its strength is violence, not mastery, and it is seething with demands. Recall that Artemis saved the Olympians against the Aloadae by smashing the rapacity of Otus against the lusts of Ephialtes.

    (And for the sake of success keep it framed as a struggle for civilization, not the white race – whatever that advice is worth.)

  2. “..have like Captain Ahab in Moby Dick been searching the political seas for their own monster. He will be white, male Christian and conservative. It is why, whenever there is a bombing, the BBC and the entire left, holds its breath for as long as possible, hoping against hope the bomber might be him. ….”

    The classic case of this occurred last year, with the manslaughter of Arek Jozwik, a Polish man who had been living and working in Britain. Spiked has more detail – http://www.spiked-online.com/newsite/article/a-killing-in-harlow-the-shame-of-remainers/20327#.Wb-bJtC0l9M – but it appears that he died when punched to the ground during an argument.

    This was shortly after Brexit, and the press jumped on the idea that this was and example of xenophobic hate – the incident was spread across all the papers as an expectation that Polish migrant workers would soon be afraid to walk the streets.

    The court case showed that Mr Jozwik was drunk, had picked a fight with some black youths in the pub with him. He started the violence, and there was no element of xenophobia in the disagreement at all.

    In this case the press did not ‘hold its breath’, and retired abashed from the scene when it turned out that they had got it completely wrong…

  3. “In what may be an inevitable confrontation between Islam and the West”. This is nonsense. Confrontation is either an inevitability or a possibility. It cannot be both.

  4. Good article Myles. The confrontation must come, I would rather have a fight & lose than simply give in without one. But who says we will lose?

  5. They are also good at muddying the waters – plenty of surplus “information”.
    Anything to delay/deny that Muslim factions have declared war ( a coward’s) upon us.
    They make no bones about it, why then, should we?

  6. In ending, Editor Harris mentions: “…what may be an inevitable confrontation between Islam and the West”.

    Here’s a scenario for one element in such a confrontation:

    Western countries intern suspected high-potential terrorists.

    Let’s take for example the UK, with an estimated 26,000 such folk.

    What resources would be required physically to intern these folk?

    What deals would be necessary with the wider Muslim community; among the political parties and in their factions; the police; the military; the courts in the UK, Strasbourg and The Hague; the media; the Church; other groups to support such an effort?

    Now say the internment of these 26K causes another 50K to decide that they too are intending terrorists – and then add in families of this lot -and pretty soon internment facilities are required for a quarter-million people.

    And during this process, a lot of bombs will be going off.

    This scenario would be among the less violent episodes in the confrontation between Islam and West.

    Everyone ready? Everyone set?

    Let’s go!

    Erm, no, not really.

    • “Erm, no, not really.”
      Harry; it is coming whether you like or not. At this point it is really a choice as to who is going up the crematorium chimney, you, or them.
      Choose wisely.

    • What happens to a country as Islam ‘moves in’. Watch the combination of gradual migration (hijiri) and violent (jihad) take over. I’ll use the country names as geographic locations. Start with Arabia, Persia, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Mali, Libya, Algeria, Spain, Crete, Malta, ….. Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, India, Hungary, Indonesia …. Now England, Germany, … you see a pattern there? Sorry, Harry, mate, it is inevitable.

      • There’s nothing inevitable about it. It’s had fourteen hundred years but has only expanded past its initial conquests by fits and starts. It’s gains in Europe were reversed, in India they were halted, and in China mostly prevented. Their regimes feed off the mode of war, but do not know how to enjoy the mode of peace. A justice where the basic concepts are force and submission does not create a long civilization shadow. There is an art to resisting Islamic encroachment. Someone ought to write a study …

  7. I heard one BBC radio reporter pondering painfully on the possible culprits behind the Parsons Green bombing. He managed eventually to suggest ‘dissident Irish groups’.

    They really do think we are fools.
