A Splendid, Brave, and Necessary book

This is a book review of:

The Unprotected Class: How Anti-White Racism Is Tearing America Apart, by Jeremy Carl.

This is a splendid and brave book. If widely read by people who are honest and can think, the book can help re-focus the public conversation in the United States on realities, instead of the hysterical and cynical libels the woke Left makes against white-built civilizations. (I use the plural of "civilization" because the same or similar scourging of their white majorities is happening in all but a few white-founded nations.)

To get a sense for the book short of actually reading it, find some of the author's exchanges in podcasts or X posts with such interviewers as Steve Hayward, Tucker Carlson, Josh Hammer, and Charlie Kirk.

Chapter-by-chapter, the book covers the main theaters of the campaign against America's "deplorables," including affirmative action, crimes by minorities that systematically brutalize whites, metastasizing demands for slavery reparations, two standards of justice (compare the George Floyd riots of Summer 2020 with the one-day kerfuffle at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021), and immigration from the Third World (the literal Great Replacement, happening in Europe and the Anglosphere, too).

I'll focus on the last, having been heavily involved for about 25 years in the fight to re-orient immigration policy to serve the interests of America's historic (i.e. mostly white) population. Thus, I can attest that the book's author Jeremy Carl does a superb job, in just 21 pages, of laying out key considerations regarding this dauntingly large subject.

One such consideration is language. For decades, Americans have been browbeaten into the notion that we're a "nation of immigrants." This is actually just a political slogan, coined during the 1950s as part of the long attack on the immigration-restriction regime that had been legislated in 1921 and 1924. As Carl lays out (page 119) and we other experts know, the nation was made by **settlers** hailing primarily from the British isles and northern Europe, not by immigrants. (Settlers found new polities; immigrants join existing polities.)

Not bulldozed by such uninformed slogans, Carl is also not swayed by the romance of the American Indian, relating the realities of brutal inter-tribal warfare in the Western hemisphere before European settlement. (I think it was an unnecessary concession by Carl to consistently write "Native American," instead of "American Indian." The former term often encourages the notion that these tribes were "the first Americans," but America really wasn't what anyone means by "America" until the whites arrived and settled. Those here before that sometimes referred to the two continents of the Western Hemisphere as "Turtle Island.")

Another key consideration starts with an implicit question: What is the purpose of the United States? For Carl and for me, the answer comes from the Constitution's Preamble, where it says "... and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity ..." And he writes that those words in the Preamble were "intended for a specific people," those American settlers. "America was not simply a ‘proposition' nation (and if it were, it would be hard to explain today what that proposition is)."

Beyond this existential subject of immigration, the book advances the public conversation in a dozen other directions, as suggested above. This conversation must happen if the U.S. isn't to fission into a welter of warring tribes, just as Theodore Roosevelt feared.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.

It’s Not Okay to Be White, by Steve Sailer, Taki's Magazine, 8 May 2024:

Jeremy Carl’s new book The Unprotected Class: How Anti-White Racism Is Tearing America Apart is important because it is one of the first works devoted to a central problem of the 21st century, the long-gestating rise of racist animus against white people...

Mentioning all the bigotry targeted at whites is so unpopular that we don’t even have any agreed-upon terms for it. For example, Carl uses “anti-white racism” in his subtitle to denote racism against whites, but that can easily be confused with being against “white racism,” which is something highly different (or perhaps not). So I prefer the explicit term “racist anti-white hate,” but others might find that too on the nose...

But whites, of course, must remain leaderless, without spokesmen. For instance, the American establishment was horrified that gentlemanly Jared Taylor volunteered to return phone calls if the press ever wanted a white opinion on racial controversies in the news, the way Jackson and Al Sharpton had long supplied the black perspective...

I’ve long argued that fostering anti-white hate is the inevitable result of the grand strategy of the Democratic Party to exploit the growth of diversity in the electorate by concocting a Coalition of the Fringes of American society. As immigration and social decay (e.g., transgenderism) make America more fragmented, the Democrats prosper (for example, they have won the popular vote in seven of the past eight presidential elections)...

Carl offers fifteen chapters on how these days it’s not okay to be white...
