Who Thinks Thinking is Unthinkable and Why

Jewish "social critic" James Howard Kunstler has specialized in ridiculing suburbia while paying relatively little attention to the non-White immigration, non-White sociopathy, and forced integration motivating Whites to flock there. The disproportionately jewish race-hustlers, developers, and financiers enriching themselves in the process also get a pass. Kunstler's made a living hyping a variety of threats, like Y2K and depleted uranium, and warning most recently that "peak oil" will cause a "long emergency". The effect, if not intent, has been to direct attention away from the more immediate and more substantial problems for more Americans, especially White Americans - the displacement and dispossession caused by genocidal levels of immigration and systemic financial fraud, each fueling the other.

Lately Kunstler has been keeping a nervous eye on a particular facet of the fraud. In Thinking the Unthinkable he writes:
How bad is the situation 'out there' really? In my view, things are veering toward such extreme desperation that the US government might fall under the sway, by extra-electoral means, of an ambitious military officer, or a group of such, sometime in the near future. I'm not promoting a coup d'etat, you understand, but I am raising it as a realistic possibility as elected officials prove utterly unwilling to cope with a mounting crisis of capital and resources. The 'corn-pone Hitler' scenario is still another possibility - Glen Beck and Sarah Palin vying for the hearts and minds of the morons who want 'to keep gubmint out of Medicare!' - but I suspect that there is a growing cadre of concerned officers around the Pentagon who will not brook that fucking nonsense for a Crystal City minute and, what's more, would be very impatient to begin correcting the many fiascos currently blowing the nation apart from within. Remember, today's US military elite is battle-hardened after eight years of war in Asia. No doubt they love their country, as Julius Caesar and Napoleon Bonaparte loved theirs. It may pain them to stand by and watch it dissolve like a castle made of sugar in a winter gale.
I do believe it might pain Kunstler to watch israel dissolve. It certainly doesn't pain him to watch and snark at "the morons" while it happens to America. Does he think what Goldman Sachs and friends have been doing is unethical, unfair, unjust, immoral, illegal, indefensible, or just plain slimy? Maybe. But for sure he's concerned how the rubes will react when they find out. He's afraid it might be bad for jews. And he thinks that's unthinkable.

This isn't the first time Kunstler has expressed such fears. Hunter Wallace (formerly Prozium) wrote about Kunstler in Cornpone Nazism toward the end of July, linking to a Kunstler essay titled Evil Syndicated. I'll excerpt a few bits to illustrate how Kunstler recognizes Goldman is creating a problem, but that the real problem is the potential backlash.
By now, everyone in that fraction of the world that pays attention to something other than American Idol and their platter of TGI Friday's loaded potato skins knows that Goldman Sachs has been caught at another racket in the stock market: front-running trades. What a clever gambit, done with the help of the markets themselves - the Nasdaq in particular - in which information on trades is held back a fraction of a second from public view, while the data is shoveled to the computers of privileged subscribers who can execute zillions of programmed micro-trades before the rest of the herd makes a move. This allows them to vacuum up hundreds of millions of dollars by doing absolutely nothing of value.
Don't mistake Kunstler's accurate description here for disapproval. If anything he sees it as a "clever" way to shear "the herd".
In any sensible society - i.e. a society with an instinct for self-preservation - it would be against the law and the people doing it would be sent to prison.
Maybe the larger question is: since when did we become a society lacking the instinct for self-preservation - that is, a society bent on suicide?
Yes, a sensible society would have stopped Madoff and Hasan too. Whites have an instinct for self-preservation. We express it all the time, even though doing so has long been pathologized and is becoming increasingly criminalized. Since when? It's been getting worse ever since jewish emancipation. The proper word for what's happening, by the way, is genocide, not suicide. It's done over our objections. Jews like Kunstler aid and abet the crime by hyping symptoms rather than causes, and misdirecting blame. They see "anti-semitism" everywhere because they're not suicidal.

I think the larger question for Kunstler is: what's best for jews? The larger question for me is: when will Whites take note of this jewish obsession with themselves and their own interests? And when will we see through the dissembling of jewish "social critics" who ridicule and pathologize everything we do to resist what they misrepresent as "suicide"?
As we turn the corner toward autumn, President Obama looks increasingly like a dupe, a tool, or a co-conspirator of Goldman Sachs.
What bothers me is that, sooner or later, the conduct of Goldman Sachs will lead the growing ranks of the unemployed, foreclosed, disentitled, and hopeless into the hands of a savage right wing seeking mindless vengeance, for instance, against "the Jews," (as represented by Goldman Sachs), or brown-skinned people (as embodied by a vilified president).
"It's that brown-skinned guy's fault! Blame him!"

What bothers me is that Kunstler is saying that blaming the group who is responsible is "mindless", because he's acutely mindful that it might be bad for "the jews" and "brown-skinned people". Note however that even as Kunstler does this he feels perfectly free casting aspersions on Whites (as represented by "the savage right wing"), and white-skinned people (as embodied by the "evil syndicated"/"cornpone nazis"). What we have here is a conflict of group interests. Rather than addressing it honestly Kunstler tries to obscure and caricaturize it, advising those who already have their hands on "the growing ranks of the unemployed, foreclosed, disentitled, and hopeless" how to best manipulate them.
Readers of this blog know I'm allergic to conspiracy theories. But surveying the scene out there, it is hard to not conclude that Goldman Sachs has become the "front-runner" of a criminal syndicate defrauding US taxpayers.
Kunstler knows it's hard because he's tried. Now he's trying something more familiar and easier: scapegoating Whites.
In the meantime, the US economy gives the illusion of recovery - but to what? Back to a "consumer" credit card shopping orgy? Another house-buying fiesta?
There you go. One last kick in the nuts for the evil morons. Pay no mind to the hedge fund managers who might be called to account for ripping off the evil morons, if only in Kunstler's nightmares.

Kunstler's not the only "social critic" who's thinks it's important to suppress/redirect the backlash.

Oy! Noam Chomsky Compares Right-Wing Media To “Nazis”:
The memory that comes to my mind — I don’t want to press the analogy too hard, but I think it’s worth thinking about — is late Weimar Germany. There were people with real grievances, and the Nazis gave them an answer. ‘It’s the fault of the Jews and the Bolsheviks and we’ve got to protect ourselves from them, and that will take care of them.’ And you know what happened…

[...]Germany in the 1920s was at the peak of Western civilization. A decade later, it was at the pits of human history.
Chomsky's characterization of those two decades is from a jewish point of view, which is likely the opposite of how a contemporary native German would have described them.
Unless an answer can be given to these people, unless they can be led to understand what’s really happening to them, we could be in for trouble.
"We" could be in for trouble? Me and mine are already in trouble. We are ruled by a corrupt and illegitimate regime whose highest priority is to drown us in "people of color", each and every one of which is afforded special rights over Whites. To even question this is considered a crime. Why should we care about the trouble the fraudsters and the "social critics" spinning excuses for them might suffer? They don't care about our troubles.

Great article. I've read Kunstler's site before. His comments in his own forum are often vicious and vile, he has quite the potty mouth and doesn't tolerate any dissenting opinions.

The fact is that whites are waking up, the herd is restless, angry and looking for leaders. I hear it from whites who are not awake yet. Obama was the best thing for us in a very long time.

The reality is that the first whites that step up as leaders are going to face a violent reaction. Its inevitable. Its going to be a painful transition, but its coming. We can't continue running from the confrontation forever and we can't allow a controlled opposition to form and derail an organic white awakening.

We are facing genocide in EVERY WHITE WESTERN COUNTRY and unless whites wake up, they are dooming their own children.

Thanks Martin. Good comment.

Kunstler's contempt for Whites comes through in everything he writes. He's certainly not snearing at "the jews" or "brown-skinned people" when he writes: "the morons who want 'to keep gubmint out of Medicare!'", "everyone in that fraction of the world that pays attention to something other than American Idol and their platter of TGI Friday's loaded potato skins", or "the growing ranks of the unemployed, foreclosed, disentitled, and hopeless into the hands of a savage right wing seeking mindless vengeance".

Whites seem to have a psychological weakness to listen to "social critics" who speak authoritatively about the nasty symptoms of our deteriorating society, even when those critics consistently finger us as the cause while making excuse after excuse for jews, as Kunstler, Chomsky, Larry Auster, and Dmitry Orlov (see comments) do. Non-Whites, and especially jews, won't listen to someone who blames them for anything, no matter what else the critic has to say, whereas Whites are relieved to hear anyone say anything un-PC, which jews get an inborn tendency and special dispensation from the regime to do. This is largely because we're indoctrinated to believe that concern for White collective interests is the most stupid and evil thought we could ever think, yet we still have those concerns, deep down, and so we feel an instinctive trust and respect for those who do speak out.

We can break through the indoctrination by pointing out the genocidal racial double standards, and by providing more honest answers to help our people understand what’s really happening to us, exactly as Chomsky and his gatekeeping, censor-happy, "hate" hating coethnics fear. The harder they try to defend even the most criminal jews while simultaneously blaming Whites, the more obvious their duplicity is. Being lied to, blatantly, seems to disturb Whites more than being called "racist". Even liberal Whites are getting tired of dancing around race, and they're beginning to think about who's been making them dance all this time and why. Kunstler sense this, which is why they put forth this absurd "suicide" meme while simultaneously telling us that attributing any blame to jews so blatantly pursuing what's good for jews is "unthinkable".

James Howard Kunstler - Wikipedia:

Kunstler was born in New York City to Jewish parents

. . .

Kunstler has faced virulent criticism for his pro-Israeli stance in the debate over the Israeli–Palestinian conflict.

The "social critic" has received "virulent criticism", oh my.

OT -- Ha! Hoist with their own petard (at least temporarily):

Who Is a Jew? Court Ruling in Britain Raises Question

"In an explosive decision, the court concluded that basing school admissions on a classic test of Judaism — whether one’s mother is Jewish — was by definition discriminatory. Whether the rationale was 'benign or malignant, theological or supremacist,' the court wrote, 'makes it no less and no more unlawful.'

"The case rested on whether the school’s test of Jewishness was based on religion, which would be legal, or on race or ethnicity, which would not. The court ruled that it was an ethnic test because it concerned the status of M’s mother rather than whether M considered himself Jewish and practiced Judaism.

"'The requirement that if a pupil is to qualify for admission his mother must be Jewish, whether by descent or conversion, is a test of ethnicity which contravenes the Race Relations Act,' the court said. It added that while it was fair that Jewish schools should give preference to Jewish children, the admissions criteria must depend not on family ties, but 'on faith, however defined.'"

"The disproportionately jewish race-hustlers, developers, and financiers enriching themselves in the process also get a pass."

Yes, nary a peep from Kunstler about William Levitt of 'Levittown' fame who was the 'father of American suburbia.' Jews profited more than almost anyone from suburbia in a lot of American states, as they've always been disproportionately involved in real estate and town/regional planning in the USA, which is strange considering their rootlessness and cosmopolitanism. Usually they just built the suburbs and some surrounding big-box retail in a very haphazard fashion and then left the area and returned to their Jewish enclaves, taking all the profits with them.

The 'tragedy' of the modern American landscape, which has been majorly despoiled by soulless far-left urban areas and isolated suburbia, cannot be blamed on a single person or group though, since the USA is still a very young and anarchic nation which is extremely disorganized on a multitude of levels. Lately, instead of saying the 'United States of America' I've been calling it the 'United States of Anarchy'.

Despite his leftism and hypercritical attitudes, I still think that Kunstler is sort of one of the 'good Jews,' though I'm still skeptical about him -- he is probably more European than Jewish/Semitic genetically, given his looks and mannerisms. In one of his memoirs he wrote that he is blue-eyed and light haired and actually had the courage to get drunk and then fight big drunk non-Jewish guys when he was younger - - which is very un-Jewish. He is also an agrarianist and a localist who idealizes small-town America and traditional Western architecture, which is un-Jewish too.

Hopefully there will be a coup!

Better Pinochet then a Zionist Occupied Government!!

Astute students of History know that there have already been two recent cases where a Corrupt Administration has been almost removed via Military Coup.

President Truman was almost removed by a Cadre of Generals because he was going to easy on Chinese Commies and was losing the Korean War

President Kennedy was like-wise almost removed due to his weakness in the face of external threats.

Indeed Jewish-Hollywood movie Fictionalization has in a way documented this!!!

" Seven Days in May is a political thriller novel written by Fletcher Knebel and Charles W. Bailey II and published in 1962. The novel was made into a motion picture in 1964, with screenplay by Rod Serling, directed by John Frankenheimer, and starring Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas. The story is said to have been influenced by the right-wing anti-Communist political activities of General Edwin A. Walker after he retired from the military. The author, Knebel, got the idea for the book after interviewing then Air Force Chief of Staff Curtis LeMay."

"Kunstler's contempt for Whites comes through in everything he writes."

Kunstler does indeed bash 'White proles' a lot, but in the last couple of years since the beginning of the economic crisis he has been bashing the 'Wall Street boyz,' Goldman Sachs, big business, international banking, the general Ponzi Scheme set-up of the American economy, and even quite a few specific big-business NYC Jews -- he is surely aware of the general responsibility of international plutocratic kikery in this economic mess (yet he hasn't been overly vocal about it for obvious reasons), though he has dropped hints from time to time about the Jewish role in America's socioeconomic crack-up...why else would he be talking about the distinct possibility of 'corn pone Nazism' arising sometime in America's near-future?

Kunstler is unreliable on the Jewish Question. I quit reading him this summer after his rants about "Cornpone Nazism" and the failure of his predictions; for instance, lynch mobs in the Hamptons, terrorists attacking Wall Street, etc.

As for his descriptions of White apathy, I often find myself nodding in agreement. I know these people. Most of them care about nothing beyond their own small circle of friends and immediate family. They aren't following the shenanigans of Goldman Sachs.

Here in Alabama, we can get 90,000 people out for the Iron Bowl. At least 40% of Whites in the state are explicitly racially conscious. But they can't be bothered to lift a finger to do anything about their impending dispossession.

These people really are stuffing themselves with BBQ and Doritos, drinking themselves into a stupor, indulging in religious nuttiness, listening to Glenn Beck in the suburbs. It is sad, but true.

It's also true that Kunstler doesn't ask or care why. We don't need his sneering. It doesn't help us.

More Kunstler along the same lines can be found in Marching Toward Zombieland. Here's what he does care about, he's literally sharing his nightmares:

So the big question now floating above the sheer data of Goldman Sachs profit announcement is: what kind of year-end bonuses will they dare to pay their executives and minions, and how will the "people" react? It seems to me that conditions are ripening for a bloodbath. The kind of heinous acts that we have feared emanating from foreign "evildoers" since the awful stunt of 9/11/01 are now most likely to come from among our own "people" - a few pounds of Semtex in the lobby of Goldman Sachs's New York headquarters... a few men with market-grade small arms converted to full-automatic outside on the Wall Street sidewalk one evening at holiday time when the suits are leaving work for the day.... It won't take much.

Again, he's not upset about what Goldman Sachs has done or continues to do. He's upset about the reaction it might generate.

Kunstler feels nothing but disgust for (White) "people". He's oblivious to the ongoing immigration bloodbath. It's not even on his radar screen. Advertising his crush on the brown person in chief is more important to him, and even as he sets Obama up for it he trys to act displeased with the prospect of having to make his brown hero the scapegoat should anything unfavorable happen to "the jews".

At some point in the future it's easy to imagine him writing, "Stupid Obama should've taken my advice to rein in Goldman, it's all his fault, and of course those Beck-worshipping morons too." Except it isn't. The consequences of Goldman's actions belong to Goldman. Kunstler, at some level, knows it. He just can't bring himself to say it.

In The Yeast People, Hunter Wallace links Kunstler's latest, The Fate of the Yeast People, in which Kunstler sneers:

A very close friend of mine calls them "the yeast people." They were the democratic masses who thrived in the great fermentation vat of the post World War Two economy. They are now meeting the fate that any yeast population faces when the fermentation process is complete. For the moment, they are only ceasing to thrive. They are suffering and worrying horribly from the threat that there might be no further fermentation.

To remove any doubt he's sneering at Whites Kunstler drops an unsubtly coded hint:

We've barely seen the beginning of this, just a little peevishness embodied by yeast shaman figures such as Sarah Palin and Glen Beck.

What's that mantra that starts out "Between me and..(something)....there's a Jew"? I can't remember what the Jewish interlocutor always stands between. Is it life itself? In any event, Kunstler is definitely one of those interlocutors educated Whites can't seem to live without. I call it the "The Sunday New York Times Syndrome." In order to understand the culture you need the opinion of one Jew for every section of the Sunday edition of the NYT. I'd like to snap the yarmulke right off James Howard Kunster's head. Boink!

I read the thread's comments and some people expressed very great anger at his contemptuous tone, i.e.:

"I agree with Laura that this mornings' blog post is repellant. It has the sound of pure evil. There isn't a place in deepest darkest hell hot enough to reward such talk.

So Mr. Kunstler is so superior that he gets to equate my life and hundreds of millions of other human lives as "yeast"? So Mr Kunstler gets to eat well but this "peasantry", as he calls us, with our "TV dinners" aren't entitled like him? We're so low, in his opinion, we should be breaking our backs again as "virtual serfs"? What about him? I'd like to see him trailing cotton sacks in the sunstroke belt. See how he likes it. We'll see how Mr. Kunstler, in his "certain serene comfort", and his cheerleaders cope if our civilization and way of life collapse.

I know nothing about Mr Kunstler but he has the sound of someone who hasn't known real hunger and misery. We'll see if Mr Kunstler changes his tune if gets a taste of the "usual suspects", as he calls them, "starvation, disease, violence". A week without food ought to wipe the superior smirk right off his face. When you're knocking at death's door from starvation meals of Velveeta and corn byproducts are going to sound awfully good."

Yes, it is not just us who find his anti-white tone too much to bear.

Auster: "a new and needed phrase: 'non anti-Semitic white nationalism'"
Additionally, he says it is a "heartening and emboldening" phrase.

Auster also implies he and his followers are the only "intellectually serious movement to save the West."

Only a deranged anti-Semite would think that a wealthy Jew ought to face jail time for drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. Every intellectually serious traditionalist knows that a fine, upstanding gentleman like Roman Polanski must be defended and those with a "sick vendetta" against him must be condemned.

In Global Guerrillas: RC JOURNAL: The Inevitable Failure of Suburbia?, John Robb consciously contrasts his attitude with Kunstler's:

I start with the view that a suburban town is a community and not just type of architecture. People/families live their lives in these towns. So, as a community, it's ability to survive/thrive is a function of its adaptability. If the future is going to be as tough as we think it is, then the question of suburbia really becomes: are suburban communities adaptable enough to thrive in the future (as in: becoming resilient communities). Given the advantages of the suburban landscape (land, surface area, security, etc.) has over rural/urban in many revival scenarios (post crunch), the only existential threat to these communities appears to be the from the global financial system -- aka a foreclosure tsunami that decimates communities faster than they can reconfigure/change. I think that problem is solvable.
