Understanding White Rage

The only color in the Army is green.

The main reason I prefer blogging over newspapering is blog readers contact you. Some readers have corresponded with me for years. They come from all walks of life, and in sharing with me their experiences, they make me a better writer.

One of my longtime readers explained white privilege in a letter to General Milley, which he emailed to me yesterday.

The letter began, "First, a sincere thank you for your service to our country. I am blessed and have so many freedoms others in this world do not have due to the men and women of our Armed Forces. This thanks is from the heart.

"I heard about your testimony today that you are trying to understand White Rage. Perhaps I can be of help here.

"My great-grandmother came to this country around 1890 from Germany with her husband and two young children. She had a rough life. Her husband was killed shortly after arriving, but she was able to remarry and eventually had a total of four children that she raised. Per family lore, she was always grateful the opportunity this country gave her. When WW II came, she had four grandsons who served. The year 1944 was very difficult for her.

"Her grandson Lewis was badly injured in a military accident in August of 1944 and was hospitalized for months. He did recover.

"Her grandson Mel was wounded at Ormoc Bay in December of 1944, where he was recommended for the Silver Star.

"Her grandson Dale was missing in action in October of 1944. He was found alive in May of 1945 in a German P.O.W. camp.

"Her grandson Bur's life ended at a place called Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. His death devastated her and many members of the family. His father never recovered, he became a recluse.

"Seventy-seven years later (2021), our liberal establishment is describing people like my great-grandmother as an individual of white privilege, an individual who didn’t know the true value of suffering. She was part of the ruling establishment responsible for the sins of slavery.

"General, with all due respect, does this help you to understand White Rage? Again, thank you for your service."

***

There was a follow-up letter from my reader, "Going through my father’s scrapbook after he passed away, I came across some pictures and found out they were his three best friends in College before the war.

"Harold C. was killed in the Marine Corpa while training to be a pilot. His family were Jewish immigrants from the Soviet Union.

"Whitey L., a navigator, died in January of 1944 when his plane went down while transporting supplies to Europe. He lettered in three sports in college: Basketball, track and football. He was a major league baseball prospect when the war started.

"Charlie M., also a navigator, he died in a bombing raid over Germany in July of 1944.  An honorable mention All-American football player and an all around nice guy per my father's yearbook.

"Finally there are two shipmates of my father. They must have meant something to them because he took both their pictures and had them saved in his scrapbook.         

"Both of these men were killed in action on December 12, 1944 at Ormoc Bay.

 "Again, General, thanks for your service and perhaps this help you understand why such a thing as White Rage exists. Per the liberal establishment these men are part of the oppressing class responsible for all sorts of evils in American History. They and their families did not suffer.

"I think, no, I know. All these people suffered."

My reader then emailed me, "I have a picture of my great grandmother on my mother’s side who came from Scotland about 1880.  She had seven grandsons that served in World War II.  One volunteered as a test pilot and was killed in a plane crash in 1944. My mom was close to him. His father, my great uncle, never recover from his son's death and died in 1946. Another grandson was permanently disabled during training. I have no real information on the others."

***

He included photos of his father Mel and all the men he mentioned. Out of concern for reader privacy, I won't show those photos.

I do know Mel suffered years of PTSD. I have verified this. Mel was a hero who saved hundreds of men's lives, but he was haunted by the horrors of war and the one man whose life he did not save.

And my reader suffered for it, too, because while his father was loving, a good provider, a productive member of society (an understatement), and a good role model, his PTSD was always there as well.

His family arrived here in 1880 and 1890 -- long after slavery ended. They lived in the North, not the segregated South. His Great-Grandmas, their children, and their grandchildren sacrificed and suffered for this great nation during World War II.

How dare Milley or anyone imply they are a privileged class because of the color of their skin!

But I know the answer. Milley is a political general who puts politics above military duty. He is a modern McClellan, a detestable man who defied Lincoln. In 1864 -- amid a Civil War that McClellan deliberately helped lengthen -- he ran against Lincoln for president.

Yes, a century-and-a-half before Trump Derangement Syndrome, there was Lincoln Derangement Syndrome, which led to his assassination. 

Milley's sanctimonious embrace of racism against white people is just as bad as the racism Democrats embraced against black people.

That is an outrage, and many white people are enraged by it.

And black men died in World War II as well. They loved their country and hoped someday to be accepted as more than second-class citizens. 

As I said, readers are very kind to me. They point out typos and send me news items. They share their experiences with me. Usually, I keep it to myself but every now and then, circumstances warrant my sharing the story with all my readers.

    3. General Miley’s statement lost all credibility the second he s threw in the comment that he wanted to understand white rage so he could better understand how an insurrection occurred on January 6 and why people wanted to overthrow the constitution. There was no insurrection and there was no attempt to “overthrow the constitution.” The government works for the people not the other way around. He is clearly a mouthpiece for the enemies of this country, and it’s pretty terrifying to me that someone like that has managed to not only infiltrate but actually lead our military. This man does not care about America or Americans, he’s an enemy, and he’s wearing OUR uniform. Frightening.

    11. If he cannot tell the difference between a staged psy-op and an actual insurrection, Milley is totally unqualified to be in command.

      For one thing, if it had been an insurrection, we, the largest army on the planet, would have brought our firearms.

      That we didn't should be a pretty big clue. What a LARD ASS.

  4. I had a 24 year career in the Navy from the early 70s to the late 90s and I can say that I hated seeing General Milley's abysmal performance before Congress. The military is about teamwork and by focusing on the differences in our skin color cannot enhance performance in any way. This is very, very disturbing to me and I reject his racist premises entirely.

  5. Today I learned of the Battle of Ormac Bay.
    In the end, it was the rather amorphous Battle of Ormoc Bay that finally brought Leyte and the entire Gulf area under firm Allied control. From 11 November 1944 until 21 December, the combined efforts of Third Fleet carrier planes, Marine fighter-bomber groups, a pincer movement by the Army’s 77th Division and the First Division plus a motley assortment of destroyers, amphibious ships and PT boats trounced the now semi-isolated Japanese in a series of skirmishes and night raids. And because of poor weather conditions air support for most of these surface actions was almost non-existent."[10]

  6. I realize that many people who have fought and died for the United States are descended from immigrants and have no history connected with slavery. But I would urge those who descended from immigrants not to allow any imputation that those of us descended from original settlers are responsible. I have three ancestors who came here on the Mayflower. Six of my ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War. As far as I know, none of my ancestors owned slaves, and all had gone West before the Civil War.

    In fact, no one living today is responsible for slavery. The accusation of white privilege is ludicrous on its face, and those trying to inculcate that ideology into the American military are traitors.

    2. White Democrat Guilt is real.
      White Democrats know they are plantation members.
      White Democrats shed their guilt onto others with their ubiquitous "White Racism" slur.
      IF Democrats were honest about themselves "White Democrat Racism" would be their slogan.
      But an honest Democrat is like a unicorn.

  7. I'll just add once again that 99.44% of those spewing this CRT (the renazification of socialism) hogwash are elite, rich, gentry-class whites - who have figured out that it's a great vehicle for banning competition for more-talented and more-energetic non-elite whites - as much/most of that elite, rich, white gentry class IS that not because of what THEY did, but because of what grand-dad or great-grand-dad (not them) did; they know that, and they also know that they could not on their own have earned the money, status, influence, and connections that they now enjoy.

    That's the "practical" part, but (like most things leftist) there is a "religious" aspect. It's a form of neo-Calvinism, in which all white folk are racist scum... except for the enlightened and "saved" who are so by birth, while there is no possible route to salvation for those born unenlightened...

  8. My foster father was from PA, so not some southern racist. He fought with Patton in North Africa and Europe. He hated blacks in general when I lived with him. And why was that? Patton's people ran out of food during his push into Germany and some came back to resupply, he told me. What did he see but black truck drivers sitting in their trucks eating fresh food. He never knew that blacks were not allowed in combat due to institutionalized racism, so the situation was not of their making. The troops, he said, were so angry they attacked the drivers and took all their food. Having fought in North Africa, Italy where he was wounded, D Day and severely wounded at the Battle of the Bulge and seeing loss of friends in battle from his boot camp days, I can see why he was so angry at those who "wouldn't" fight. Who wouldn't be.
    He died hating blacks for something neither he nor the blacks had any control over. Part of the 100 years of Jim Crow that the Damn Democrats fostered on our country.
    And now we are seeing it again becoming part of America under the Democrats. Yes, their IS white rage or as I prefer, normal Americans rage.

    1. Keep in mind that the army was more desegregated in the 1870s than it was in the 1940s; Grant desegregated it in the 1870s, and then Woodrow Wilson re-segregated it. (The same applies to a lot of other things.)

  11. y'know, I've often wondered if black troops in WWII actually considered themselves fortunate not to be at the tip of spear where most of the casualties occurred? And, if this was truly a racist society, we would have put black soldiers at the tip of the spear so as to spare white soldiers the initial carnage...cannon fodder anyone?

    So, when black soldiers went ashore at Normandy after June 6th, did they look around and wish they had been in the vanguard? This is not to say that black soldiers were incapable of heroism (Tuskegee airmen, for example), but it's just human nature. My old man at times seemed almost wistful that he had not seen more combat during the conflict, but I'm glad he was spared the blood and gore seen by his fellow generation. Luck of the draw, I suppose...hats off to all of them who wore the green, no matter what color their skin

  12. I've told my story- my Grandma was Easter Cherokee.
    Her family in North Carolina were The plantation owning slave holding Indians. Blew up when Grx3 grandfather listened to a Scots Presbyterian preacher, sold everything and gave the proceeds to the family.Caused a rift until this day.
    My mom's side were Scots too along with German Swiss, English mayflower puritans.etc.Including a Barbadian lass that married and sailed with a ship captain ancestor.
    My Dear late wife had similar
    Roots and story more interesting, too.
    My point: If your family has been here since the founding, good chance you are not pure White. Especially us with Southern/applachian heritage.

    2. Doug, the solution to this pervasive problem is easy.

      If what you have to say runs long, create the message off-line where you alone control the process of writing and revising.

      It's just much easier to do.

      Whomever designed the Surber posting system, shared by millions of other blog systems, apparently had no idea that the act of typing into a little box is, basically, INSANE.

      Whenever possible, avoid doing this.

      The analogy is that when you're giving a birthday present, it's gift-wrapped at home, not at the party later on.

      When finished: Cut, return to the blog, and paste.

      Visually, creating your posts off-line offers a much better experience.

      Verbosity, the enemy of clarity, now has nowhere to hide. Redundancies and weak analogies are more easily seen and zapped. And the original order in which thoughts were expressed can be improved (the fourth sentence, above, "Whomever..." was originally located where it didn't belong).

      The sense of humor now emerges if suppressed at the start due to the urgency of the message and the haste of the writer.

      (FanDuel, an on-line wagering site, has a "fire alarm" that warns bettors that they've made too many bets in too short a time, say if fifty consecutive $1 rapid-fire bets have been made on 50 players in a golf match. We need this for non-gambling sites that would alert senders with red-hot keyboards that they've typed the word "Hitler" 50 times in 3 minutes.)

      Creating what you have to say off-line also prevents the rare and infuriating event when you're on-line typing away and suddenly everything DISAPPEARS.

      Finally, the spellcheck offered here might just be --- perish the thought! --- helpful, highlighting an error that your own SC system didn't catch.

      And I hope you're doing well.

  14. For all the reasons stated above I too am outraged. In the past I worked on political campaigns, donated money to candidates, and defended those who I had helped get elected only to have every one of them disappoint me. I got to know them personally. Was able to contact them after they were elected and yet it didn't matter. They had a assured me they were going to be the change we needed. Then they would get to Washington and be sucked into the establishment overnight. If I named them, which I will not, you all would have heard of them as they became very well known. The only one who stuck to her guns was crucified by the media and supposed supporters and has been relegated to the dust bin of history. I'm tired. The 2020 election was stolen and there seems to be no recourse. I have stopped watching or listening to all the electronic media news. I was once a faithful daily reader of this column but now only stop by from time to time because the news quite frankly pisses me off. Not your fault. You are simply the messenger. I spend a great amount of my time now on the golf course with my friends who are equally disappointed with the current state of the world. A long time friend of mine was an ardent Trump hater and still believes Joe Biden is the best. During the Covid farce she self righteously made useless masks from cloth and elastic believing she was saving the world. The other day she sent out invitations to a party she is having but ONLY VACCINATED PEOPLE may attend. For reasons of my own I have been vaccinated but there is no darned way I am going to attending this party. No Irish need apply. Dr. Seuss who I grew up on wrote a book entitled "The Sneetches". Some had stars on there bellies others did not. The Star bellied Sneetches felt superior. A guy comes to town who has a machine that can put stars on the bellies of those who dodn't have them. Outraged The Star bellied guys get their stars removed. It ends up both groups go round and round getting then removing starts. The only one making out is the guy with the machine. He is making millions while the Sneetches bicker about who is superior. Of course Dr. Seuss is being banned because? Racist! Don't get me started on Huckleberry Finn.
    Thanks for letting me rant. I very much appreciate what you do.

  15. As long as Democrats wield power in the Senate, the right officers will be held back and the politicians will be advanced. Milley's rant was so obvious, it was ridiculous.

    PS When you talk political generals, you're talking Burnside, not McClellan.

    Historians are taking a fresh look at Little Mac and figure he's gotten a bum rap just to make Lincoln look good; his orders were protect DC, not, as Lincoln demanded, destroy Lee, and his army was already in bad shape before Antietam.

      Clever, dishonest people eventually get caught because, successful at first when detected as knaves, they start to think that they can explain anything away.

      And the longer that they adroitly evade the reckoning, the worse it is when it inevitably can no longer be postponed.

  17. My mother was born around 1907. I don't know the date for certain because my grandparents were Polish immigrants in Cape Cod, MA. The doctor refused to issue birth certificates to her and her siblings and the only way they could be recorded is if both my grandparents went to the town hall. I was about 4 or 5 when my grandfather died and we made the trip to Cape Cod to wrap up his affairs. When I saw the house my mother grew up in, I thought it was a chicken coop. It was a small tar paper shed. They had brutally rough lives. When I hear the silly rich white kids babbling about white privilege, I can't even quantify the disgust I have for them.

  21. My 5X-grandfather, Jeremiah Greenman joined the RI militia at the age of 17 and was a POW for 8 months after the attempt to take Quebec. He joined the Continental Army and rose to the rank of adjutant lieutenant. During the winter of Valley Forge, he and his officer recruited black soldiers. The RI General Assembly paid the owners and the slaves were freed at the end of their service. Greenman kept a day-by-day journal that is available on Amazon.
    My great-great-grandfather joined the 100th Illinois at the age of 17 and fought in the horrendous battles in the Western Campaign until he was captured and survived as a POW in Andersonville Prison...the worst POW camp anywhere, perhaps, where 1/3 of the prisoners died.

  23. Great post! The only thing I might add is that, after 50 years of doing my very best to be brutally honest with myself in all things, I've finally come to the conclusion that Lincoln was wrong. Slavery was wrong, too, but two wrongs do not make a right. Our Declaration of Independence assures us we have a right, when faced with a tyrannical government, to "change or abolish" it. The south tried for MANY years before seceding to convince the North to remove crippling taxes which affected solely the south - taxes more severe than those King George imposed on the Colonies which led to our revolution. Denied fair treatment again and again, the South seceded peacefully. Any capable student of history understands that the refusal of the north to remove themselves from Fort Sumter was literally an act of war, and that no sovereign nation can allow another nation to literally threaten shipping in one of their major ports.

    Lincoln's treachery and avarice utterly transformed this from a nation of VOLUNTARY States to an Empire of conquest and tribute. The South changed from having a few million black slaves to an entire sub-nation of economic slaves.

    My ancestors escaped slavery in Germany (serfs) and came to America for freedom and opportunity. They fought, suffered, and died to free the slaves (of course they believed the Northern propaganda, why not?). Later they fought in WW I, WW II, Korea, and I fought to free Panama and Iraq from brutal dictators. I'll tell you what "white rage" is - it is DECENT folk having to listen to cowardly, lying, America-hating Marxists call US racists because of the color of our skin. Yes, thinking of that makes me feel that all of their heads would look best adorning the end of a pike, or at the end of a rope.

    2. The "Empire of conquest and tribute" began long before Lincoln when George Washington commanded a battalion of Virginia colonials in ousting the French from Pittsburgh. The Revolution that began with 13 states ended with the British removed from all our present territory east of the Mississippi and north of Florida. That territory doubled in size when we acquired Louisiana, thereby removing the French Empire from our continent. Next came the Spanish Empire. Our material aid to the revolutionaries ended the Spanish presence in South America, Central America and Mexico, and we added Florida. By this time, we were the most powerful nation in the Western Hemisphere, but the expansion continued with Texas and the Southwest by war and the Northwest by treaty, all before Lincoln was elected.

    Well, it sure doesn't help. But, no, reading Mao Marx and Lenin doesn't make you a Communist, General.

    But Rubber-stamping the Election Fraud Coup does.

    How effortlessly he parrots the Uni-Party line. And how casually he smears white people.

    Trump voters weren’t at the Capitol to overthrow the Constitution. They were there because the Constitution had already been overthrown. And they couldn’t get any of the Coup Plotters to listen to them, not that it would have done any good. The Fix was In.

    You haven’t seen Rage yet, Fatso.

    BTW, tthe first Jan. 6 defendant guilty of the heinous act of “parading” is a Trump Granny. If she wasn’t a plant to begin with, she has cut a deal to grovel before the Obama Judge.

    She is advancing the Official Narrative(tm): “I was an Evil Trump Racist for thinking the Election was Stolen, but I have now been re-educated!” The old Commie Public Recantation.

    THIS IS THE SAME NARRATIVE GEN. MILLEY WAS SPEWING, LINKING JAN. 6TH TO “WHITE RAGE” AND TEACHING CRITICAL RACE THEORY.

    That's no coincidence. It's an Agit-Prop campaign against the American People.

  34. It seems sad to me to say this, but when "Stay in school and learn and make something of yourself" becomes more to people than "I hate others because I don't have anything" then, and perhaps only then, will this racism grievance industry dry up and blow away. On a side, I have a picture of my great (something) grand uncle in his Union uniform taken shortly before he died at Gettysburg.

  35. Dear Sheeple I have ancesters who fought in every American war starting with the King Philip's War in the 1670's where by 10 times GGrandfather William Palmer died. I have done a very thorough investigation of my 401 year ancestry as a white American and have zero ancestors who owned slaves (all ancestors are from southern New England.) I had 2 greatgreatgrand fathers who fought for RI and CT in the Civil war and each had to walk over 1000 miles just to get to there battles, one of whom was shot in the leg and had the luxury of 'riding' a horse 1000 miles back, such fun. He eventually died from his wounds to free black humans from bondage. Life was extremely difficult to say the least until all but the last 70 years or so. One white great grandmother temporarily had to give up her 4 kids and live in a 'work house' in Exeter RI for several years (husband dies, no welfare then). So no, there was no white privilege.

  36. People don’t understand what white rage is. Read Carol Anderson’s book. Being white and being angry about something is not what it is.

  38. I feel the samne way- except my ancestors fought at places like Manassas and Bull Run and Gettysburg. they fought and suffered and some died. they were white, they were southern and they were MEN. The same blood in their veins also flowed in the veins of heroes in both world wars, Korea, Vietnam and Iraq. The American South has America's back General. Even if you do hate us.

  39. Perhaps General Milley should spend less time reading the works of Marx, Mao and Lenin and more time reading The Constitution he claims to defend! His ignorance of it was made crystal clear as he referenced “the three fourths compromise”. Let’s go over this again, General, as you were obviously asleep the day your high school government class covered “The three FIFTHS Compromise”. And this was NOT intended as a slight on the value of blacks. In fact, it was quite the opposite.

    As the number of representatives for each state in the House of Representatives was to be in proportion to the population of the state’s citizens, the southern states wanted to count their slaves towards the number of representatives they could have. The northern states objected on the grounds that the south didn’t want their slaves to enjoy the freedoms that would be afforded by The Constitution, therefore they could not be counted as citizens. The Three Fifths compromise was the resolution to this impasse.

    The Three Fifths Compromise was also intended as an enticement for the south to free their slaves, since as free men, they could then be counted as a full citizen. Make no mistake, the northern states despised slavery but knew if they were to continue as a country united, they had to make compromises.

    I will not even feign respect for this General and his service because it is clear to me he is just as ignorant as the others who push this “white rage” narrative. I’m quite sure he has done more during his career to damage our military than he has ever done to improve it.

    There is no more dangerous combination than arrogance coupled with ignorance. This man has demonstrated his abundance of both!!

  40. My mother, being the youngest of ten, her oldest sister had married and had a son, my mother's nephew that was her same age and was raised as a sibling. He was killed shortly after D-Day giving cover to his squad so they could escape a German ambush. His remains were never identified and I have no doubt he rests under one of those crosses marked: "Here Lies In Honored Glory A Comrade In Arms Know But To God."

  41. The cabal needs to be extincted with EXTREME prejudice-no working with them anymore, nor letting them live after their defeat. The "great experiment" is a DISASTER for good people.

  49. I'm always amazed at how ignorant most leftists/progressive/marxist/elitists actually are. I'm 75 years of age. I was a young child in the 50's int kern County California. The second of 5 children of migrating Okies. I encountered prejudice in my school. Thank God, I was too young to actually recognize what it was. I only knew it made my mom seethingly angry. This from a woman who was 100% Native American in Oklahoma..she knew about racism and prejudice! If the elitists don't recognize this anger, they will be in for a long hot summer of anger. Karma is really a bitch.
