Texas State University student Rudy Martinez wrote an especially well-reasoned, nuanced and thought-provoking column that was published in the November 28th issue of The University Star, the school’s campus newspaper. In the article, titled “Your DNA is an abomination,” Mr. Martinez passionately argues for the death of all white people:
“Ontologically speaking, white death will mean liberation for all … accept this death as the first step toward defining yourself as something other than the oppressor,” Martinez wrote in his column. “Until then, remember this: I hate you because you shouldn’t exist. You are both the dominant apparatus on the planet and the void in which all other cultures, upon meeting you, die.”
There, there, Mr. Martinez, get a grip on yourself. No one can control what DNA they are born with, which is a significant factor in the offensiveness and absurdity of the very racism you decry on the one hand, but so vilely perpetrate on the other. Exclaiming that you hate people because you think they “shouldn’t exist” isn’t a particularly convincing rationale to anyone who hasn’t been on a college campus recently. It should be terrifying to any sane, tolerant person that someone- anyone- believes they have the right to determine who should or “shouldn’t exist.” Although, come to think of it, that is precisely the view of the “pro-choice” crowd.
Martinez’ op-ed also included this bon mot: “In your whiteness, you are granted the luxury of not having to think about race daily. Your heartbeat does not speed up when you get pulled over and find yourself staring at the red-and-blue lights of the fascist foot soldiers we call the police. You don’t leave your home wondering if you will ever come back. You don’t give a damn.”
Nice of him to somehow assume white people don’t give a damn, but that was never the case. And, in actuality, by any reasonable standard, straight white men- especially those with a job and a Christian outlook- are the most freely persecuted group in the nation at the moment. Also, do you really believe minorities would be better off without a police force?
As for his personal relationships with Whitey, Martinez added: “When I think of all the white people I have ever encountered – whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friends, police officers, et cetera – there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent.’”
The editor-in-chief of The University Star, Denise Cervantes, issued an apology for the op-ed piece, stating: “The original intent of the column was to comment on the idea of race and racial identities. We acknowledge that the column could have been clearer in its message and that it has caused hurt within our campus community. We apologize and hope that we can move forward to a place of productive dialogue on ways to bring our community together.”
She is wrong: the column couldn’t have been clearer.
Student body president Connor Clegg noted that students are forced to pay for the paper through their student fees, saying: “No one should be forced to support the free press. That’s not how it works so that’s an institutional issue that I’d like to see resolved,” and added that he hoped Ms. Cervantes could help address the issue.
Martinez himself is standing by what he wrote, proudly telling The College Fix, “The article speaks for itself.” That much is true.
He responded to a query about the article’s apparent hypocrisy be averring in an email: “Was the piece racist? Nope; racist attitudes come from a position of power. The only group who have ever (sic) held true power in this nation are those who call themselves ‘white.’”
So, racism has no particular connection to race and it can only be engaged in by the powerful?
Martinez, a self-described Marxist, has previously utilized the pages of The University Star to illustrate his insanity. In June, the paper published his dissertation on how the Russian Revolution continues to inspire folks 100 years later. In that manifesto, he concurs with Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky that the Bolshevik Revolution would bring about a new form of government that would give the economy, industry, transportation, and land “back to the people.” He added that this is “The only way to achieve a lasting peace and avoid oppression.”
Marx, Lenin and Trotsky were all white, and ascended to astonishing power only through violence and bloodshed. Marxism/Communism killed over 100 million people in the 20th century alone, in a stated attempt to return power to the people and achieve a lasting peace.
Colleges and universities have tragically become the single worst purveyors of anti-Americanism, entitlement mentalities, victimology, general cultural bullshit, sexual perversity, intolerance, vapidness, Christian-bashing, and illogic. They are, even more than the mainstream media, responsible for the rapid decay, diminution, and decline of Western Civilization.
