Why did I get it all so wrong ? Part 1 : How it all started.
The setting : Post the first democratic elections of South Africa in 1994
The country is main lining progressive ideals. Social justice squirts through the national veins and "peace and equality" drum out from the countries heart. The ideals of reconciliation, forgiveness and
unity fellate our cocks and motorboat our clitori.
I went to university in 1995. A liberal university. To study social sciences....
Begin to imagine in that climate what cultural marxism had been poured like hot lead into the mold of my young skull ? Years and years of indoctrination about my white privilege. About my male privilege. About how my existence oppressed the world. Social constructionist, feminism, social justice and this other post modern bullshit ! All this in the background of Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, the truth and reconciliation commission and fucking Bono and Bob Geldorf. I don't 100% remember but yes...probably fucking Bono and Bob Geldorf.
Imagine what a potent mix this was to an idealistic young white man ?
1999. Then after university I go backpacking. And who do I meet ? Hippies. Lots and lots of hippies. Stoned hippies. With dreadlocks. They are fascinated by me. They tell me about what a miracle South Africa is. Everyone is drinking the kool ade. Everyone knows the narrative and reinforces it. I get laid a lot. I feel very world wise. I'm pretty impressed with how liberal I am and generally just all round more tolerant than everyone else. Especially other South African whites. They're all ignorant fucking bigots after all.
September 11th 2001 and on. Afghanistan. The Iraq war. I express outrage at American imperialism. I wear "good bush/bad bush" t shirts, I revere Michael Moore.....my liberalism and sense of righteousness are at an all time high.
2007. I start a blog called "Killallwhitey"
continued......part 2 : How did I cure myself of this poison ?
