The CPAC Minstrel Show

The CPAC Minstrel Show

Conservatism is a White political movement. The Republican Party’s voters are almost entirely White. Donald Trump spoke to White voters’ concerns about mass immigration and culture. Trump supporters are attacked endlessly for being “White supremacists” and “Nazis.” The Republicans are criticized for not being diverse enough. Everyone acknowledges that Conservatism is a White thing. Everyone except the Conservative movement itself, that is.

The CPAC event over the weekend was the latest reminder that the Conservative movement is run by frauds who psychologically manipulate and abuse their membership. The movement actively refuses to embrace the fact that it is a White movement, and lies to Republican voters about its potential for a multicultural future. The end result is a confused movement completely disconnected from reality.

The CPAC stage was several times more diverse than the audience. The organizers packed the stage with seemingly any and every Black who was willing to ape Conservative talking points. At the same time, they refused entry to pro-White figures such as Patrick Casey and Nick Fuentes. The elaborate ruse is designed to keep as many Conservatives as possible from realizing the obvious: their movement is White, and that is OK.

There are three main types of “Black Conservatives” that are sold to Republican voters. The first type is the White-presenting Black. These people dress like Whites, read from the same script as White Conservatives, and general try to imitate Whites as closely as possible. This is meant to make Blacks in the movement more palatable to Whites. The basic message is that they are the same as you and me, we just need to get the message out to Black communities. The message is fraudulent of course. They aren’t the same, and they will never accept the Conservative message. Two examples of this at CPAC were Candice Owens, the Turning Point USA token, and Deneen Borelli.

The second type is the kind that attempts to get Conservatives to take on an issue important to Blacks. This type is purely subversive, and they make only a minimal effort to even present as conservative. At CPAC, a braindead Black football player was brought in to promote “prison reform” (i.e. letting Black criminals out of prison early) and Maj Toure from Black Guns Matter explained that Conservatives should invest in giving Blacks easier access to firearms. Letting Black criminals roam free and giving them more weapons is the last thing White people in this country should be doing, but here the Conservative movement is, hoisting the message upon them.

Toure’s closing lines encapsulate this unfortunate fraud:

Something, something liberty. Something, something Constitution. Anyway, send money. Peace out, muh nigga.

The third type, and the unseemliest, is the Black minstrel. These people completely get rid of the pretense of acting White, instead becoming over-the-top caricatures of Black culture. Like the first type, they simply read off Conservative talking points, but this time with attitude. The best example of this is Diamond and Silk, who spoke at CPAC. The women stepped on stage, wearing weaves and oversized jewelry. Diamond struggled to read through points on American government that were probably lifted from an elementary school textbook, while Silk supported her with sassy “uh huhs” and “that’s rights.” They did so to applause. Those who enjoyed this performance were clearly expressing a latent racism. Whites who understand and openly admit racial differences found the performance by Shuck and Jive to be profoundly painful. A true racial egalitarian would also have nothing but criticism for the sad performance. The only way it even rises to the level of acceptable is if one has significantly lower standards for Blacks than Whites. The clapping CPAC attendees showed that they do. They also showed that they think stereotypical Black behavior is comical.

Minstrel shows, while often cringeworthy, are harmless enough. But when the biggest Conservative conference of the year turns into one, there is a problem. In his heart, even the most clueless Conservative has to know that there’s something strange about the number of Blacks involved in Conservative propaganda and the messages they push. Why was a quarter of CPAC spent advocating Black issues while exactly zero of it was spent advocating White issues? Why am I being asked to laugh at the sad minstrel show being put on by two middle-aged women with room temperature IQs?

With the obscene spectacle that took place at CPAC, the Conservative movement is begging the question.
