Red October, Corrective Rape, and Idiocy

14 Oct

This bit from a blog by @AlbertBrenner1 at http://praag.org/?p=11057 concerns deeply.

“It only took six tweets of 140 letters/characters each to confirm said theory.This was how it was done. I simply asked her if she supported black lesbians protesting against “corrective” rape. She answered in the affirmative, of course. Then I pointed out that rape affects all women, not just black lesbians. Meaning that black lesbians form a sub-group protesting that which affects them specifically namely “corrective” rape. But, as mentioned before, rape affects all women, not just black lesbians.

From this it follows that it is logically and, even more importantly, morally inconsistent to laud one sub-group (black lesbians, in this case) for their “discriminatory” form of protest – i.e.they only protest against corrective rape, and not all rape – whilst demonising another (in this case, Red October whites) by accusing them of partaking in a “discriminatory” form of protest.. based on the fact that crime affects all, not just whites. Ergo, the rationale underpinning the protest by whites against their slaughter at the hands of blacks is no different to that of black lesbians protesting against corrective rape. Yet, the former is demonised while the latter is lauded and applauded by Britten and her MSM ilk.

It suffices to say that that which is good for the black lesbian goose is not good for the Red October white gander. This means that people like Britten discriminate on the basis of race – in terms of the above-mentioned biased sentiments expressed publicly. Given the above context, and what we know from all the standard definitions of racism, this would make Britten a racist.

What concerns me is that it equates the protests by Black Lesbians on corrective rape to the Red October protest by some Whites focussing on rape of White women by Black men.

This is noxious, and problematic.

Black Lesbians are a highly marginalised group in society whose voice is rarely heard, listened to or taken seriously, there is no-one else to plead their case. That they focus on a form of  rape that affects them more than anyone else is not problematic. What is problematic is that society ignores their plight.

Then looking at the issue of White women being raped by Black men, this particular narrative has a long history and it has been argued is core to the development of the Afrikaner masculine identity. Their duty is to protect the purity of White women against the savages. To ignore this history is at best an omission and worst deliberate deceit.

Red October merely takes its place in this long tradition of Swart Gevaar, that was the bedrock of Apartheid and has recently had some rather tragic consequences in the case of Oscar Pistorius and the death of Reeva Steenkamp.

To argue that to demonise Red October is to be racist, is  to be full of it, and by it I mean South African White Privilege.

If we then look at another angle –  many White women have pointed out to @steve_hofmeyr that they were raped by White men, meaning that by racialising the rape of White women, Red October seeks to minimise/erase a significant problem within the White community by projecting it onto Swart Gevaar.

Lesbians by focussing on corrective rape, due to their lack of social power and the specificity of corrective rape, do not in any way erase or minimise anybody else’s narrative of rape. They protest a specific form of patriarchal domination.

Red October trades on specific narrative that sustained racial domination in South Africa for hundreds of years.

I am not going to comment on the writings of those attacked by @AlbertBrenner1 as his own writing is in itself heinous.  And he had the temerity to say I must read Biko to understand, sickening
