Tom Metzger, Third Positionist and White nationalist racist, interviews John Jewel, a former IWW representative.
I’m not really wild about Metzger. He urged his followers to beat up random non-Whites, and they beat a poor Ethiopian immigrant to death in Portland. On the other hand, Metzger’s always been a socialist. He wants socialism for Whites, which sucks, but it’s better than neoliberalism for all.
I drove by his home in Fallbrook once 20 years ago when I was in my anti-racist mode. There were elaborate security protections all around the large two story home in a nice White housing tract. Fallbrook was still a nice place 20 years ago, heavily rural. Not sure what it’s like now.
They grew a lot of pot out there in the late 70’s-80’s. They grew the pot in the avocado ranches and irrigated it from the avocado irrigation lines. You buy an avocado ranch as a cover, grow avocados, and grow pot too.
Jewel is an interesting guy. He’s clearly a socialist, and I like his basic direction. In the entire 7-minute interview, he only mentions his “racism” once. He says he learned White racism from his father, an LA police officer in the South Central Division. However, this same racist cop also admired the Black Muslims for trying better their people, and he refused to arrest Black kids who stole food because they were hungry. Some racist cop.
Anyway, I’ve known a lot of White cops in my time. Most White cops are racist against Blacks. Trust me on that one. Blacks commit tons of crime, cops see it up close and personal, and they put two and two together. I’m not sure if I blame them.
5 seconds of racism amidst a 7-minute talk. Whoop dee fuckin doo. The rest of the talk is straight up IWW socialism channeling Joe Hill’s ghost itself straight from the gallows.
It’s Metzger who seems more racially oriented. He honestly doesn’t seem that interested in the socialist stuff, and he keeps trying to steer the subject back to race, either White power exhortations or jabs against non-Whites. I think Metzger is a racist first and a socialist second, possibly opportunistically with the latter, but who knows?
But the Jewel types are salvageable. I’ll take their “racist” Wobbly socialism over SWPL Critical Race Theory Multicultural Curriculum corporate neoliberal globalist “Leftists” any day of the week. The racism is rather problematic, but we can work that out later, or we won’t, but we’ll support them anway. I’ve never supported the divisive line of excluding or shunning racist White workers. So they’re racist? So what. If they’re workers and they’re on the Left, they’re our people. We’ll deal with the racism later if it becomes a problem, or we’ll just ignore it if it doesn’t.
