The Gateway Pundit’s obsession with “virile” Honduran refugees harks back to centuries of racist fearmongering about brown and black sexuality

Detail from cover of Bold Moment, aka The Horncasters, a “novel of the present-day South” first published in 1947

By David Futrelle

As The Daily Beast’s Will Sommer noted on Twitter earlier today, the right-wing fake-news site The Gateway Pundit “is extremely into calling the caravan migrants ‘virile.'”

Indeed, in four separate posts on the caravan of migrants and refugees currently making its way from Honduras to the United States, the Gateway Pundit writer Cristina Laila has tried to present the caravan as consisting mostly of men she describes variously as “military-aged, virile male Hondurans,” “military-aged, virile mostly Honduran males” and “military-aged virile males.”

Laila insists that “the women and children [in the caravan] are being used as media props and human shields,” obscuring the fact that this is a manly man “invasion.”

This is hardly the first time that paranoid racists have portrayed young male refugees of color as sexual interlopers trying to “invade” mostly white nations. For the past several years, similar complaints about “virile” male refugees of African and Middle-Eastern descent have been all over Twitter.

Jeanne Appleby DeSilver ‏ @arrowsmithwoman Follow Follow @arrowsmithwoman More Wonder what's on the mind of the thousands of young virile refugee/invaders?!

And where Twitter trolls go, elected GOP officials are sure to follow. Indeed, in remarks during a House Committee on Foreign Affairs hearing on refugees in 2015, California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher raised the specter that “trainloads” of “very virile young men” from the Middle East were trying to sneak into Western Europe by pretending to be “desperate refugees,” something he said was “frankly very upsetting to me.”

But if you want to see the far-right in full psychosexual meltdown over too-sexy refugees, you have to turn to the virtual pages of The Daily Stormer, which regularly portrays brown and black refugees as sex-crazed “rapefugees” bent on the sexual conquest of white women.

While the Stormer’s attacks on refugees drip with racist hatred, the site’s writers direct much of their vitriol at white women whom the Stormer deems insufficiently racist towards the non-white “invaders.” As the Stormer sees it, this friendliness towards refugees is the result of the illicit hunger of white women for hunky men of color. Not that anyone at the Stormer would phrase it quit that way. They are a bit more, er, salty.

In a 2015 post titled “The Greasiest Cuckolding of All,” Daily Stormer head boy Andrew Anglin declared that “[t]he White European female’s craving for Black dick threatens to collapse civilization itself.”

And he was just getting started.

White women across the Western world have been put in control of Western societies, and they are using this control to ensure an endless supply of Black and Arab men to satisfy their depraved sexual desires. …

White women – an undetermined percentage of them, but apparently most – are calling for Europe to be flooded with Black and Arab men so they can have sex with them. They are using the resources of White men to feed and clothe these objects of their sexual desire.

German women regularly get all up on men in refugee camps and attempt to have sex with them publicly.

Angela Merkel is said to require “dicks numbering in the hundreds per week” to satisfy her terrible urges.

Psychologists are uncertain about the nature of the drive of these White women to engage in bestial sex with unevolved monkeymen, but the running theory is that they do this because White men have become cowardly f**gots, incapable of arousing sexual desire in their own females.

He goes on like this for several hundred more words, but I think you’ve probably gotten the gist of his argument already.

“Black dick” — and brown dick, and indeed virtually every kind of dick that is not of a predominantly pinkish hue — has loomed large in the imaginations of white racists for centuries. Sometimes the white obsession with black and brown sexuality was about fear: Lynchings of alleged, usually falsely accused, black “rapists” were as much about reassuring sexually paranoid whites of their cultural virility as they were about terrorizing the black population.

Other times it was mostly about titillation — as in the countless mid-twentieth century movies and pulp novels about “taboo” interracial relationships. Most of the time, though, fear and fascination were so intertwined it was impossible to separate the two emotions; for countless vivid and horrifying examples, see the pop culture imagery of the “black brute” posted online by the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University.

Now the Gateway Pundit is directing a very similar sort of mingled fear and fascination at the, er, “military-aged, virile mostly Honduran males” who make up part of the caravan marching north through Mexico, still more than a thousand miles from the US border. As the caravan heads further north, I suspect, the uglier the rhetoric on this side of the border will get, and the more we’ll hear about the allegedly dangerous “virility” of young Honduran males.

So congratulations to the Gateway Pundit’s  Cristina Laila — for being many decades behind the times, and yet somehow also ahead of the curve.

I love how the sum total of all these people’s insecurities boils down to something like “White Men Can’t Schtupp.”

Maybe, if they focused their energies on actually constructive things, they might find they suddenly get a lot more action in the sack.

I can’t help it, I just did the math. I knew better, but my brain just kept churning out the numbers.

There are seven days in a week. Angela Merkel presumably sleeps eight hours a day and spends another two hours eating, pooping, washing her hands, and so on. That leaves fourteen hours per day – or ninety-eight hours a week – for other activities. Well, let’s just round it up to a hundred.

If she was fucking even one hundred guys every week, they’d literally be lined up around the block, night and day. This wouldn’t be a rumor, it’d be verifiable fact. Those lines would be on freaking Google Maps.

And I must say, it wouldn’t be very good sex for either party. Very industrialized. I’ve heard of quickies, but this is ridiculous!

Can’t these people at least make their ridiculous rumors realistic? Instead of “hundreds a week!!!” try “dozens a month!!!!” – it still sounds bad, but it’s at least dimly plausible. (Wait, why am I giving these dipshits advice?)

It’s also my impression, but like Heartiste, for example, he does seems to rely a lot on “poetic language” to express his filth, probably in a desperate attempt to reassure himself about his superiority. Beauvoir was right when she said there is no man more hateful, stupid and violent than one that is anxious about his virility.

1. I grew up in the German city with the highest migrant percentage. Somehow all my experiences with men being dicks (cat calling, assault, etc.) was at the hands of white men. Never brown men. It’s the same for my mum. Our relatives horror stories about what life in the city supposedly is like are absolutely infuriating.

2. Why are these dipshits so keen to admit that they’re shit sexual partners? If they new what they were about they wouldn’t be so afraid of competition.

I always found it hilarious that bigoted white people seem to inadvertently make the targets of their hate sound a billion times more exciting or cool than they actually are.

They have Jewish people become these super vampire wizards with vast wealth and power who rule the world.

They have men of color (Black, Latinx, Mid-Eastern, etc.) as these awesomely athletic sex gods with big virile penises.

….and so on….

It’s like White Supremacists are making a Freudian slip, showing the world the true root of their bigotry….Feelings of inadequacy.

“But if you want to see the far-right in full psychosexual meltdown over too-sexy refugees…”

Too-sexy refugees made me laugh; “don’t let them in; too sexy” with Zoolander pouts and all.

“Virile” young men are at extreme risk in war zones for their being forced to fight i.e. drafted (Vietnam) or being killed extra-judicial style for their potential to fight (Srebrenica).

I don’t recall Canadians recoiling in horror at virile young men heading north to avoid getting shot for something they could not believe in; most of them got assist to live and hide.

To be a woman or child in a war zone is even more hell.

We are at a time of the highest amount of displaced people in history because of collapsed or fragile states or civil war–all push factors that cause them to flee. Some of them are going to be physically capable adults.

Trump’s answer is to stop helping fragile states from collapsing by pulling aid. That’s a classic Jasper’s beard scenario right there.

It’s amazing that Angela Merkel can get anything done at all (washing her hair or opening a can of soup or shining her shoes), let alone run a country! Her sexual appetite may be off the charts — and this is in spite of the fact that she is most likely postmenopausal and thus her urges have diminished — but her ability to organize her life and her work is beyond phenomenal and probably supernatural (in a good way).

I’m thinking that once she turns 65 (next year!), Merkel can probably cut back to a dozen lovers a week, freeing up all kinds of time. At that point, she’ll be quite capable of running the UN and the world — and doing an excellent job at both.

Angela Merkel is said [by me, Andrew Anglin, a person who thinks it’s a good idea to be a Nazi] to require “dicks numbering in the hundreds per week” to satisfy her terrible urges. [I say this because I have absolutely no understanding of mathematics or how much work goes into running a country or even the fact that genitals can become sore and inflamed and bloody and infected after a certain amount of friction, and that amount of friction is far, far, far less than would occur when having sex hundreds of times per week.]

Psychologists are uncertain [I consulted zero psychologists in “writing” this article] about the nature of the drive of these White [I capitalize this word to emphasize my point that being pale-skinned (like me!) is the only right way to be] women to engage in bestial [Hey, I just thought I’d throw this in here, ignoring the fact that in the old South, white owners had sex with their black slaves all the time] sex with unevolved monkeymen [Ha, ha, no, I don’t really believe in evolution, but it’s fun to throw around racist words], but the running theory is that they do this because White men have become cowardly f**gots [Not me! Certainly not me! The ladies love me — or at least they should], incapable of arousing sexual desire in their own females [Again, I’m not talking about myself — or my own females!].

obscuring the fact that this is a manly man “invasion.”

There are ~7000 people at the most in the caravan. That’s approximately how many people move to Dallas every two weeks. If every last person in the caravan stopped and settled in Dallas, literally nobody except their immediate neighbours would even notice a difference. Invasion my ass.

This is just to say that, thanks to the reports quoted in this article, I may never be able to read the word “virile” again without throwing up in my mouth a little. Much like how I can no longer see the phrase, “she is all grown up” without a wave of nausea. Thanks, Daily Mail!

Andrew Anglin is said to require up to eight Dora the Explorer pullups per day.

…I guess we’ve arrived at the point in history where truth is whatever anyone says it is, and sources are not needed to verify claims.

So if Nazi white men are sexually inadequate and helpless before the flood of virile, military-aged brown men, remind us again why nature ordained them to be at the top of the hierarchy? What are they superior at, other than whinging in front of a keyboard?

Anyway, I thought Nazis viewed virility and rapiness as positive masculine traits. Funny how these suddenly become bad and scary. things when brown-skinned men possess them. It’s almost as if they don’t enjoy the prospect of having their boundaries invaded without their consent. My heart bleeds.

You are assuming that Angela has one at a time. I think if she surrounds herself with twenty or thirty dicks at any one time she could get into the hundreds in quite a short period.

Seriously though, it makes me so cross the way these dick heads just shame and shame people. I mean, I know he’s trolling – but the reason he picked Angela Merkel is because she is a middle-aged woman who is not conventionally attractive, and therefore the idea of her having sex (or indeed doing anything rather than locking herself in a room so no-one has to witness her shameful aging) is even more “disgusting”.

Women having sex with lots of men is disgusting because women shouldn’t like sex. Women having sex when they look like Angela Merkel is even more disgusting. Put those together and you have a lol, right Anglin, you asshole?

Well, screw him, I like the idea of Sex Positive Merkel. I hope it’s a real thing (not in the hundreds though obviously Angela, because you have a very important busy job and also that’s how you get thrush).

Indeed… but the women OP considers “his” don’t like having sex with “people like him”, because apparently black and brown men are MUCH better at it than he is. (I wonder how he’d know..).

Goodness knows what would happen to the inside of Anglin’s head if he heard that there are some white women who have lovers who are neither white nor male!

I was actually watching a YouTube video on this very topic last night:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QX1-X9KZnn8

I should give a shoutout to King Jon Targaryen’s videos. He’s got a keen perspective on a lot of the trends we’re seeing among the right wing these days and I appreciate his ability to tease out different threads and talking points and relate them to the historic trends that have been used to denigrate minorities for decades if not centuries.

Because I remember hearing J. Philippe Rushton’s name before. One of the things that have always amused me about these faux-intellectual dillholes like Dave Rubin and Sam Harris is their wide-eyed incredulity about scientific racism. “Wow, some guys with PhDs think race and IQ are linked!” And here I am, some X-ennial on the internet thinking, “Yeah, I encountered it on the Politics Forum of DeviantART back in the Web 1.0 days. They were wrong then and they’re wrong now.” And yet these guys who are at least a decade older than me are just hearing it for the first time and think it’s something brand new! I can accept that from somebody who’s young and naive, but not from quote-unquote “intellectuals.”

And to think, I almost went to Western. I’d like to know which genius gave Rushton tenure there….

King Jon also pointed out how much of the fear is based on the cultural depiction of black people in pornography. The Stormfront forums are rife with discussions of interracial porn. I’m honestly surprised this doesn’t get talked about more often in breakdowns of the racial animosity of the alt-right. These people are so attached to their computers and ensconced in their little bubbles of hate that they clearly aren’t getting their social cues from the broader world around them. Most of their sexual relationship data is likely coming from PornHub and I’m willing to bet dollars to donuts that it doesn’t end with the folks on Stormfront.

Angela Merkel is said to require “dicks numbering in the hundreds per week” to satisfy her terrible urges.

Look, just because Germans tend to like sausages doesn’t mean that they guzzle dick like bratwurst.

Those numbers aren’t mathematically outside the realm of possibility, assuming we make several, er, “charitable” assumptions. Ignoring the time required for foreplay, and assuming a bare minimum encounter time of 2 minutes (Look, if you’re aiming for hundreds you’re clearly looking for quantity over quality), 200 encounters (the bare minimum required to qualify as “hundreds”) would take about 7 hours. That’s significant, sure, but not impossible within a week. It’s just one hour a night. If one engages with multiple dicks at a time, like Violet said, then that amount could be significantly shortened.

Of course, that assumes that chafing and other biological considerations are off the table. And I’m pretty sure that if one had such a strictly regimented sex life, you’d probably want those hundreds to be people who were already with the program (i.e. “Reusing” most dicks at least weekly, if not more frequently), to limit the amount of time wasted hunting for new dick. So even if someone did have needs like this, it would not be the reason that they accepted thousands of refugees into their country.

I think I can determine the percentage. Zero. Zero percent of white women are doing this.

but apparently most

“Apparently” = “it’s obvious to me, even though nothing else in objective reality supports this”

“Most” = “I’m going to hide behind a vague quantity because there are no numerical data corroborating this outside of my head”

– are calling for Europe to be flooded with Black and Arab men so they can have sex with them. They are using the resources of White men to feed and clothe these objects of their sexual desire.

Don’t you think white men would be noticing all these unusual grocery and clothing expenses?

“Honey, what’s this $800 charge to the Gap?”

“Oh, don’t worry about it, dear. Just a few pairs of Cuck Khakis for some virile, military-age friends of mine.”

Nobody deserves domestic abuse, ever, but she’s a pretty detestable person too. She’s a self-proclaimed fascist and “Putin Troll Leader” and is working on a translation of Aleksandr Dugin’s works.

Given that her idol Putin signed into law a document decriminalizing domestic violence last year, it’s interesting how quickly she decided to abandon that part of the ideology when she suddenly found it applied to her. I’m sure she thought she was “one of the good ones”, but in the end it didn’t protect her.

I feel most sorry for the kids who had to witness all this. May they find a safe and loving environment where they can heal.

They have been busy…

https://edition.cnn.com/politics/live-news/clintons-obama-suspicious-packages/index.html

The CNN one was discovered while CNN newscasters were reporting the Clinton/Obama devices.

Or as Newsthump puts it:

The Federal Bureau of Investigations has this afternoon admitted they are baffled by the seemingly random bombs recently sent to four prominent public figures and organisations across America.

With suspicious items sent to the Obama and Clinton residences, following a device sent to the offices of George Soros, and now a bomb scare at CNN offices, the FBI is putting its top agents to work hoping to solve these apparently unrelated crimes.

An FBI spokesperson told us, “Sometimes you get lucky in cases like this, you might find a hate preacher out there, delivering dehumanising speeches targetting each of the victims – then it’s just a case of isolating their followers and bingo you have yourself a prime suspect.

“But where do you start when the victims are as unrelated as these four? There is literally nothing to connect them in the eyes of a potential perpetrator.

“I mean, a semi-retired couple from Arkansas, a former President, a billionaire liberal philanthropist and a news organisation – it’s like something from a James Patterson novel.

“I can only hope one of my colleagues can solve the mystery and find a link that breaks the case wide open.”

Amateur sleuths are already hard at work trying to crack the case.

As one told us, “Clearly you are looking for someone who hates white people; Two of them are white, one has white people present it’s TV shows, and the other one, the black guy, he was probably thrown in to put you off the scent so it doesn’t look like it targets white people. Simple.”

Another said, “They are all tools of the Illuminati, so that might be it – but to be honest, I’ll reserve judgement on what really happened until Alex Jones and his Infowars masterminds can explain it to me.”

A White House spokesperson told us, “We don’t know who is doing this, but clearly they have great taste.”

fuckin’ buffoon, that kind of hatred is the SIGNATURE of the right-wing, and has been for a century and a half AT LEAST!!!

trumpitude is NOT the thought process of the “average” American, it is the thought process of a minority of white Americans who believe that society rejecting their perceived right to publicly abuse everyone who doesn’t look like THEM is an act of genocide.

I’m SICK of this bullshit that all the awful things the bigot-in-chief says and does are “just him being anti-PC” BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT!!! If you object to a federal judge ruling on a case involving you because his ancestry is Mexican, you are not “being anti-PC”, YOU ARE A BIGOT!!

If you object to a black man running for President because you believe he was born outside the U.S., but you do not object to a white (of hispanic descent) man running for President even though you KNOW he was born outside the U.S., YOU ARE A BIGOT!!!

If you ban Muslims from entering the country based on the idea that they might be terrorists, but you make exceptions for Muslims from nations which have a documented history of fostering terrorism, because you make money off those countries, you are not protecting the U.S. from terrorism, YOU ARE A BIGOT!!

If you consciously enable and encourage people who have made it clear they are bigots, inviting them to the white house, calling them “very fine people”, and actively avoid any suggestion that they are doing wrong, you are NOT “being anti-PC”, YOU ARE A BIGOT!!

… shall I go on…?

goddam, I am tired

I hate how all these right wing assholes and the way how politics have gone off the rail into the right wing wasteland (mainly in the US, but also elsewhere in european countries, and in Germany by how the bavarian Sisterparty of Merkel and our outright Nazis behaved), give me the urge to defend Merkel, despite that her party is STILL THE CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN UNION basically. They are still slowly killing our social security while favoring big Business. They are still responsible for a number of social disasters we currently have in Germany (and no, i dont mean immigrants, but i do mean the catastrophic lack of nurses for example and housing in cities, or the state of education). I’d never vote for the CDU (yeah, I’m a registered nurse, and I’m pretty pissed about what the CDU (not just them, but also them) has done to Healthcare Quality and I’m also not thrilled with how they treat it now that they cant look away anymore). But god damnit, you hateful assholes, back the hell off our chancellor. She is a thousand times better than you will ever be.

On another note, how does this new fantasy reality fit in with the Rapegangs of immigrants supposedly roaming every street? I’ve been told (by american racists, who never set a foot on german soil) i cant safely go to work anymore without getting raped by a refugee. Yet i do it every day and nothing ever happens. But now i learn i was supposed to be in line at the refugee centers instead?

I apologize for the wrong capital letters, but I am too worked up currently to keep my german in check.

And I’m also gonna echo the sentiment of other posters here. The reason i don’t trust men easily is that i got assaulted by a german friend of my cousin when i was 16. The reason I’m still not over it is countless other creepy men, mostly white, regularly reminding me that the world hasn’t changed much since then and that its really the white boys you gotta worry most about, because they know they get away with it. Recent Oktoberfest was another reminder. So many drunk, aggressive guys of all kinds of nationalities, who don’t listen to no easily.

At least the police was twittering, that anybody who wouldn’t take no for an answer, was entitled to a lesson from them. I’m not sure how much they followed up on it, since i didn’t personally need their help, but it was nice to see them make such clear Anti-Rapist statements.

Germany already had a rape culture before the refugee crisis started. And now certain white men use this fearmongering to deflect attention from that. It’s so infuriating.

Tell us how you really feel, Eddie! 😛

But seriously, preach it. When I read that article, I couldn’t help but think of what Driftglass said about how it’s actually conservatives that hate America. At least the America that has started to conform to its purported ideals rather than being the hollow shell of white straight male privilege and empire. So this is more projection from people insecure in their place among America’s social hierarchy and they’re lashing out.

In other words, they’re masking their own feelings of sexual inadequacy with repugnant racism. A true American classic, right there.

… can’t… comments policy 🙂 🙂 🙂

I had a “discussion” with a colleague about “wite jenaside”. I suggested that everything that working class men had “lost”; the industrial manufacturing economy jobs, the family farm economy, the small business economy, the “upward mobility” social concept of the 1950’s/60’s, etc… had been taken from them by conservatives. The people who made the economic decisions which ended these economies all had three things in common: They were all men, they were all white, and they were all registered repugnican’ts.

working class white men have really only lost one thing to liberals… the social acceptability to publicly abuse anyone and anything they don’t like (note, they still do it, it’s just not considered “socially acceptable” anymore.)

Apparently, however, the loss of THIS element was more important to white men than the others.

When the corporatists decide that it would be cheaper to import steel and basic industrial products rather than re-tooling the old factories after WW2 in order to compete with Germany and Japan… the union manufacturing jobs disappear, the white men give huge tax cuts to the corporatists, blame the unions and sulk….

When the corporatists decide to hold crop prices so low that the family farming economy begins to disintegrate, and that the efficiency of corporate farms negates the need to subsidize the family farms… the family farms disappear, and the white men give more huge tax cuts to the corporatists, blame socialism and sulk….

When the corporatists start building bulk stores, and start importing massive quantities of products from Japan and later China, at the same time the first round of tax cuts begins to hyperinflate the economy… the generational small business economy disappears, and the white men give ANOTHER round of huge tax cuts to the corporatists, blame globalism and sulk.

BUT!! BUT! All was not lost! These are not the crawling, submissive weasels I’ve made them out to be!! Over the half-century since Will McAvoy’s “… sure used to be.”, we have seen a push by oppressed people for the same rights white men take for granted… equal rights for women, civil rights for people of color, the right to love and marry whom you please, the right of transgender people to use the bathroom…. A piece of the pie for all, as it were (or we wanted it to be.) Of a piece with this piece of the pie was the right to not be publicly abused by white men… who had FINALLY HAD ENOUGH!! When they saw the potential loss of that privilege, they spoke up. They voted in one of their bigoted, anti-intellectualist, pro-corporatist, narcissistic, self-absorbed own as president, gave YET ANOTHER ROUND of huge tax cuts to the corporatists and blamed it ALL on everyone else.

trumpitude… gotta love it… IT’S THE LAW

America needs a language to talk about class, frequently and consistently. In particular, it needs to be able to shake off the myth that it’s in any way, shape or form a meritocracy in which ‘anyone can make it if they just believe’. That particular lie feeds the inferiority complex of the white underclass (it’s hard to use the word ‘working-class’ when all too often the problem is that there is no work, and frankly, the very American and disturbing expression ‘trash’ more accurately sums up their status with respect to society as a whole). It’s a situation that also – let’s face it – feeds a certain amount of casual, ill-thought out abuse and blame of white people who don’t ‘make it’.
