Anti-Whiteism: The New American Religion and Totalitarianism
It wears the skin of Christianity but perverts its virtues and ensnares and disarms believers.
Elijah DeWitt had a promising future. At 18, he was a lean 6 foot 2, 190-pound Georgia high school football star with a jaw like granite and a head full of blond hair pulled back into a bun like Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. In a video posted to social media, the young athlete demonstrated his prowess by repeatedly power-cleaning an impressive 270 pounds. He had even received a call to visit the University of Georgia on the day he died.
On Oct. 5, DeWitt was shot and killed outside a Dave & Buster’s while on a date with his girlfriend, Bailey Reidling. The two suspects arrested in connection with the incident, Kemare Bryan, 18, and Chandler Richardson, 19, are both black. The motive isn’t clear yet. DeWitt’s mother believes it may have been a botched robbery, while police said DeWitt and his killers may have been familiar. Familiar or not, they effectively executed him. “The interaction between them was extremely fast, and it went from just a shove to shooting within a second,” said Sgt. J.R. Richter of the Gwinnett Police Department. The last word he said to Reidling was “help.”
Yet Reidling swiftly forgave her boyfriend’s killers. “You don’t know how those kids were raised. You know, what they were going through,” she said. Elijah’s father, Craig DeWitt, did the same. “You know, we don’t know the kids. We don’t know their backgrounds. We don’t know their story. They’re forgiven from me,” DeWitt told WANF.
These statements reflect decades of social engineering that have conditioned white people to instantly forgive victimizers with sufficient diversity points. Note the references in their rationales to the presumedly poor socioeconomic environs that drove Bryan and Richardson to kill DeWitt, which practically subtracts individual agency from the equation. That is not a jab at Elijah DeWitt’s father or girlfriend. The end of social engineering is that it makes people act in certain ways unwittingly—they don’t know they’re doing it.
Importantly, it seems to particularly afflict Christians, turning the virtues of that religion against believers, but it is, in fact, a new religion with totalitarian characteristics: anti-whiteism. It operates on a conscious and subconscious level. Some willingly go along, while others have unwittingly internalized its logic, like Erick Erickson, a conservative radio host.
On Twitter, Erickson chided former NFL player Jake Bequette for his comments on the DeWitt case. “This kid’s body isn’t even cold yet, and the parents and girlfriend are already falling all over themselves to forgive the murderers and move on? No righteous anger? What a pathetic, broken culture this is,” Bequette tweeted. Erickson replied that it is “the epitome of Christianity to forgive even someone who kills your loved one.” But is it genuine forgiveness if one has essentially been programmed, perhaps even coerced to think this way by the culture? Our white knight also sang a notably different tune for the largely white protestors who entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6. “Shoot the protestors. Waive the rules, impeach. Waive the rules, convict. Waive the rules, deny the ability to run for election again,” he demanded, conspicuously omitting forgiveness and opting for a more merciless touch.
Erickson wasn’t alone in his virtue signaling. An almost exclusively white mob of self-professed Christians with views fundamentally indistinguishable from plain liberalism besieged Bequette and those who agreed with him, accusing them of everything from rejecting Christ to kicking puppies. They appeared more upset about comments made by Bequette and others than the actual murder itself.
