00h UTC; WEDNESDAY, 31 OCTOBER 2012: Before I begin, I should acknowledge that the Engrishfied titling of today's post was inspired by this alleged subtitle from a Hong Kong martial-arts potboiler of the type common until a few years before the handover of control thereof from the British to the Chinese, when English subtitles were actually required in cinematic releases:

"Who gave you the nerve to get killed here?"

In case there are some of you who feel I may be showing rank insensitivity to the plight of the afflicted from Megastorm Sandy in this, I do apologise; as redemption therefor, the lead-off image again links to the Disaster Relief Donations page of The Salvation Army USA vis-a-vis said megastorm; those seeking an explanation as to why I would prefer the Salvos over the Red Cross are directed to yesterday's post therefor.

Anyway: As for the expected, conditioned even, reaction of the "REAL AmeriKKKan," conditioned in his thinking by the ilk of prolefeed conduits like Fox News Channel and conservative talkback radio to the wholesale and unprecedented devastation across the Northeast Corridor from Sandy--16 known dead, damage estimated at some $20 billion, some 3 million without electricity, transit services disrupted indefinitely, Wall Street reopening today after two days' enforced suspension, the financial industry operating essentially through telecommuting--Your Correspondent is torn between whether such will be hysterically hilarious (cf. the Harpies of Greek mythology in their reacting to human misfortune) or will be of the hypocrisy-powered Elmer Gantryite, aggravated by liquor or insanity, weeping and wailing and bawling and boohoohooing unto Bog and All His Holy Angels, Archangels and Saints in Their Collective Mercy For Our Beloved Nation, the Shining City on a Hill, Jerusalem of Gold, Having Fallen Astray Unto Demonic Influences, all that Mickey Mouse....

As for the implication gay-marriage opponents have about an implied interconnexion between gay marriage and small-business failures, bank closings, mass job losses, &c., &c., I have to wonder where exactly the Bible hath it that there is a mutual interconnexion between the defence of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe and that of Bible-Believing Christian Values such as condone racism, xenophobia, bigotry, nativism, anti-Semitism and downright jingoism.

Such "values," it turns out, being those of Afrikaner Nationalist leaders down South Africa way who, in their seeking payback from the British in the name and behalf of the Afrikaner Volk, saw appeals to a manufactured ethno-national solidarity and cohesion, rather than "dependency" on State charity, to be their preferred means out of enforced "poor whiteism" towards what they saw as a "natural right of dominance" over South Africa. Especially when such was influenced by Nazi-model pageantry as definitely showed in Die Tweede Trek, a symbolic 1938 reconstruction of die Voortrek in nine ox wagons travelling in two streams from Cape Town: one to Pretoria (eventually laying the cornerstone of the Voortrekker Monument), the other to the Bloedrivier battlefield site; at its Bloemfontein stop, firebrand Boer War chaplain "Vader" J.G. Kestell made an impassioned appeal for a campaign of Reddingsdaad ("rescue action") under the banner and battle-cry of 'n Volk red homself ("a people rescuing itself"), eventually collecting £450 in spare change at the many communities in which die Tweede Trek called by its conclusion.

Fast forward a year: Under auspices of the hyper-Masonic Afrikaner Broederbond and affiliated Afrikaner groups, the highly-secretive, closed-door even, Eerste Ekonomesie Volkskongres ("First People's Economic Congress") was convened at Bloemfontein to address "poor whiteism" from a socioeconomic standpoint; among its proceedings, it was concurred that:
  • an Afrikaner-centrist investment house, Federale Volksbeleggings (FVB; "Federal People's Investments"), was established to invest in viable business enterprises per the concept of Volkskapitalisme ("people's capitalism"), a "people-centred" concept of capitalism expected to emphasise employment and training for a heretofore-dispossessed Volk above mere wealth creation;
  • the Broederbond's influence over, and connexions with, the life insurer Sanlam and the Volkskas bank were to be maximised all the more (especially with Sanlam's being entrusted with the management and operations of FVB);
  • an Afrikaner Handelsinstituut ("Afrikaner Business Institute") was to be launched to promote Afrikaner enterprise and business development;
  • a mass campaign of socioeconomic empowerment through a defining national and cultural identity was to be conducted through a new mass movement, the Reddingsdaadbond (RDB; "Rescue Action League") by name;
  • cooperative societies were to be encouraged and promoted to help especially rural Afrikaners get better prices for their crops and produce as much as to empower Afrikaner consumers;
  • trade unions were to be "reorganised" along racially-defined lines, emphasising ethno-national cohesion and identity above collective bargaining, what with established labour unions being seen as "Communist-influenced" to the point of "promoting race-mixing" seen to be "undermining White Christian dominance;"
  • campaigns to "Buy Afrikaner" and promote the use of the Afrikaans language in trade and commerce were to be launched; and, above all,
  • the eventual aim of the whole was to seek the constant leverage of otherwise "idle monies" of the Afrikaner, as held in banks, building societies, savings clubs, insurance even, into "productive capital" expected to serve the Greater Luscious Glory of the Afrikaner towards his natural socioeconomic dominion as if being God's Chosen People wasn't good enough.
Which, all in all, would sow the seeds as bore the fruits of apartheid, whose founding principle was essentially one of racial and national segregation ("sovereignty within our own sphere" being a popular phrase used by its leaders in its defence) to be viewed all along as "Christian" and "Divinely-Ordained" (the which eventually came in handy from a prolefeed standpoint as independence movements swept Africa from the late 1950's on into the mid-1970's, such being seen as a Threat and Danger to White, Christian, Eurocentrist Colonialism and the White Man's Burden so engendering).

Which, come to think of it, was perhaps Mitt Romney's preferred (howbeit secret) model for saving the AmeriKKKan automobile industry from bankruptcy as General Motors and Chrysler faced Carey Street in the late 2000's--but he didn't want you to know about it out openly. And probably still doesn't, as a matter of fact.

"Think about it," dear and gentle voters.
