The Kotsko Syndrome

08/13/2020

These are trying times. As society looks ready to tear itself apart, there are some that are willing to help facilitate the process. Adam Kotsko is one of them.

Kotsko is a professor at North Central College in Illinois. He believes that the Constitution is racist and, therefore, we should abolish state autonomy, the Senate, and the Electoral College. Kotsko left in place the House of Representatives because, I guess, someone has to run the country (even if it too is racist). Problem is that if you abolish state autonomy, there will be no states to elect members to the House.

He never states exactly why the Constitution is racist, only that it is. He never explains why the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution which abolished slavery, provided for equal protection under the law and gave citizens the right to vote regardless of race or color are also racist. It’s academic anyway, because how could he have argued the point?

The question is this: What is the motivation of a person like Adam Kotsko, someone who is a professor of philosophy at a small college in the Midwest? Could it be that Kotsko is mirroring his own racism on to someone else? After all, if he were a true humanitarian, he should consider critiquing the truly racist countries in the world, like China and Saudi Arabia, not America which has, by far, greater diversity than any other country in the world.

And here’s the answer to the question of motivation posed above: Kotsko feels that white people are the real problem, based on his comments that “white American cultural common sense” is allowing the police to kill black people. That, in itself, is a racist comment.  Never mind that most black people are actually killed by other black people rather than the police.

The real agenda, though, lies in Kotsko’s desire that all white people should commit suicide. What this amounts to is doublespeak out of the mouth of a radical, in reality a justification to exterminate the white race (because obviously the entire white race is not going to commit suicide). This, then, is not much different than the run-up to Hitler exterminating the Jews. It’s the very same playbook, as outlined in Rules For Radicals.

 

Epilogue

The problem with people playing the race card in America today is that racists like Kotsko can posture that they are the anti-racists. It’s the essence of the Cancel Culture and an attempt to destroy American cultural values. Welcome to the new normal, to the Kotsko Syndrome.

 

“The first step is to replace the history (e.g. destruction of statues), then you destroy the institutions (e.g. abolish the police), and then you cancel the culture through things like groupthink. In the end, you create a hive-mind culture where the elites can pull the strings from behind the scenes.”  – TheEthicalWarrior, The Dystopian Nightmare Named America
