Racist American Museum of Natural History, part 2

The Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda is the first thing you see if you walk up the big steps through the main entrance (past the security guard checking your bag who was never there before 2001).

This big room is like a huge love-fest for the racist white-supremacist Teddy Roosevelt. The only way to cleanse it is to take down all of the Teddy Roosevelt quotations and murals, and rename it the Barrack Obama Rotunda.

* * *

The white-supremacists would be much better off carrying around pictures of Teddy Roosevelt than Adolf Hitler. Teddy is still loved, by many, as a great American president. Although I suppose that would quickly change if white supremacists adopted him as their mascot. But still better to have a former U.S. president as a mascot than a totalitarian ruler of Germany who started World War II and killed millions of Jews.

  1. That is a great point. Environmentalist Teddy as a symbol would also be a way to bring in more allies whose number one issue is protecting our forests and seas rather than Identity Politics.

    Jewish Americans can also feel much more at home with a movement that has a positive mascot.

  2. True, but if you want a racist-white supremacist president, Woodrow Wilson is tough to beat. He was a globalist too, getting the US involved in World War I and the subsequent Treaty of Versailles, with all its terrible consequences, and sponsoring the dreadful League of Nations, which the Senate fortunately rejected

    • Wilson was a nerd who liked to sit under a tree and read poetry; not a bad way to spend your life, but not exactly exciting for other people to read about. Teddy was an intellectual who wrote books, but he was also an adventurer who went hunting and hiking and exploring and so forth. I guess in some ways he was like Winston Churchill, though Churchill had adventures greater and more dangerous, still.

  3. Theodore Roosevelt had a strange lifespan. He had been amazingly active and vigorous, but became a feeble old man in his early 50’s and was finished at 60. While it might be tempting to blame his deterioration on injuries sustained in the 1912 assassination attempt, he clearly was declining even before that.

    • Teddy started out in poor health with debilitating asthma. What he accomplished was more through strength of mind than strength of body. Even his adventures, when he went out west, he was mocked at first for being a clumsy dork. But he was always willing to try, and when he took a hard fall, got back up and kept going. That eventually won respect.

  4. > But still better to have a former U.S. president as a mascot than a totalitarian ruler of Germany who started World War II and killed millions of Jews.

    Hitler and Nazism must be the maximum-retard rallying points for any American movement. Beyond killing millions of (white) Jews and millions of (white) Gentiles, their main program (Liebensraum) was based on killing tens of millions of Slavs (white). Generalplan Ost called for starving people rather than gassing them or shooting them, but dead is dead.

    “White Nationalism”, how inspiring.

    • No one in America will take these nutbags seriously, when they constantly chime into the idea that phenotype association is what defines an ethnostate. Ethnicity has nothing to do with race, but it has a lot to do with culture and ideology.

        Maybe you have been asleep for the past week. Many people take them seriously.

        Several prominent Jewish writers for the Washington Post and the Atlantic have compared the antifa to the American troops fighting Nazis in WW or have said these people are actual nazis.

        Plenty of Jewish paranoids out there with high enough IQ to know better have been “triggered” and are in full panic mode.

        when they constantly chime into the idea that phenotype association is what defines an ethnostate. Ethnicity has nothing to do with race, but it has a lot to do with culture and ideology.

        Ethnicity is a subset of a larger race.

        So German, English and French are subsets of a “White” or European race, so to speak.

        Korean, Japanese, Chinese are multiple ethnicities of a larger race, whatever you want to call it.

        It’s not just about “culture”.

      • Well the mainstream media haven’t given anyone any reason not to be triggered, and most people are too lazy to pay attention to any alternate media, especially if they are rich and successful and busy. Why does a rich investment banker need to seek out alternative media when the mainstream view of the world has been so personally beneficial?

      • Have you not heard of ethnic Whites? Jews are considered an ethnic “White” group in places like New York.

        Well, there is no singular culture in America, hence all its problems. Perhaps, there is no culture as I have been saying all along. Anglo Ethno Nationalism is all about race, because there is no culture to unify its citizens.

        It’s quite obvious that America signifies money. Nothing else really matters, and you know it. Many on the alt-right don’t understand, and neither do most black americans on the hard left.

      • Ethnic whites are prole whites who retain affinity for their regional European culture. Only the Hasidim and ultra-Orthodox can be considered ethnic whites, the other Jews have become SWPLs with no attachment to their old-world culture at all.

        But I’m referring to Jews in media like Jeffrey Goldberg and Peter Beinart at the Atlantic and Dana Milbank at the Washington Post.

        They don’t do anything but get paid to write about what’s in the news.

        You are too defensive about this issue and the Jews in the media with these views really believe them.

        CNN is heavily Jewish as is the Wash Post, NYTimes and the Atlantic.

        Nobody Jewish at those outlets is “following” anyone. They are part of a community of like minded people who work in and run the media.

        You are too emotionally threatened by this issue.

        I’m a Jew in the alternative media and I’m writing the truth, and so are many other Jews.

        It doesn’t matter. You and Jews who comment here and write elsewhere are on the wayout fringe. So am I but you are clearly “triggered” by this unlike Otis or Yakov and others who probably think what I am writing is obvious.

        If Jeff Zucker wanted to fire Anderson Cooper he could do it in a second.

      • “Mainstream media Jews are just following the lead of rich mainstream media WASPs like Anderson Cooper.”

        Maybe, but people react more to specific targets not abstractions, which is one reason Hitler is so useful to the Bolsheviks and the Jews were so useful to Hitler. So, who’s the non-abstract target? The Nazis will say Goldman Sachs. Who’s your evil doer?

      • People are more likely to keep foreigners out than risk having their culture subsumed by them. If not for the demands of cheap labor no immigrants would ever be tolerated.

        The South is a region populated by people who fought the Catholics in the Low Countries, worried over the Armada and celebrated Guy Fawkes day into the late 17th century.

      • That’s correct, but America is here to serve the capitalists in a game of zero sum struggle. Basically, social darwinism renders blacks as obsolete, where other immigrants take their place, and proles and less intelligent/privileged Whites are eliminated by more intelligent/privileged Whites.

        No they don’t. The lyching of a few Italians in New Orleans was unique and related to crime. And New Orleans is hardly typical of the South.

    • There are only so many plausible conspirators out there who can explain what seems inexplicable to many; why is the country committed to suicide? Moldbug has his answer; aside from that who?

      Hard to believe it is Leftist per se, Roosevelt was good on immigration. That leaves only one other suspect in the panoply of suspects, and those were the Nazi’s enemies as well, at least according to the party. Not so hard to see where this comes from.

      The longer the immigration cassius belli remains obscure, Nazis will gain in strength. The non-fascist right needs to identify an enemy to blame and go after it, pronto. This quisling fence sitting is costing prescious time.

  7. I think there’s a broader theme here: pointing out the ever-present racism of the past can be a double-edged sword. At some point, you can either discard all of your nation’s heroes as horrible monsters for believing certain heresies, or you can start to wonder if there might be some truth to the heresies, and that’s why heroes believed them.

    The trick, of course, is to bring in a new population that has no love for the heroes of old.
