I endeavor here to introduce humanity at large to a new chink in its armor of self-righteous that is a severe retardant to its thoughts of supremacy
among other things. That character fault is the wild-spread and unrecognized UFO racism evident across the full spectrum of our civilization and
prominently found on ATS every time a positive UFO thread appears.
UFO racism—more properly anti-UFO racism or even ET racism—falls under the guidelines of Political Correctness, if being about as extreme of a
definition of that position as possible. Nonetheless, it fits.
Everybody understands the concept of racism: Racism, a disregard, dislike, hatred and even a solid fear of another being unlike one’s self. A
self-justified, virtually automatic judgment about a somewhat different being. Those motivations are the same when applied to those other than human,
UFO folk and ETs in general. With this special group also, the automatic reaction is a need, to feel superior to another being by whatever means of
non-thinking, twisted logic, poor reasoning and excuses that come to mind. Thus, the early jokes of “little green men” swarming around landed
flying saucers brought smiles to human faces and not dreaded fears of an alien invasion. The smiles were not genuine, a display of love for those new
visitors but to cover the unsettled fear behind those events. As the presence of the UFO have persisted and allowed further thinking about why they
are here, more negative view and outright denials of their existence have grown along with the benign concepts. One added aspect is evidence on ATS
of poor thinking skills in threads that never go outside of the human “box” that sits on the shoulders.
While the term “UFO” usually represents a material object, a craft, the literal driving force behind such a vehicle is a creature of some
substance with a plan in mind. In many human minds, unsympathetic attitudes toward the UFOs (object and driver) are directly correlated with personal
sympathies and alliances resulting in UFO racism.
When Carl Sagan famously said (paraphrased), “While ETs may exist out there somewhere, they can’t get here from there.” He was being a UFO
racist by demeaning (across the Universe!) any capabilities that any other creature could attain based toward deep space. That position is as
anthropocentric as you can get, based as much on scientific superstition as any final fact of physics. –But such was the times in which Sagan held
that view (if it truly was his view other than as a comforter). Still, to bulwark his position he had tons of scientific backing. He was in good
company, safe and sly company.
A stark UFO racist is someone that denies the existence of UFOs at every turn as frequently done on ATS, whether it is some flash of light in the sky,
an excellent (but phony) CGI video, a sighting from a decent citizen or reported from a fighter jet. In every case denial in one form or another is
the tactic of offense. The UFO racist’s mind is closed to acceptance of the possible and out pops some manner of denial fitted to the situation.
So while one example may be bogus, all UFO accounts and the phenomena itself is totally disallowed as beneath contempt.
The average person in the street or on ATS need not, should not, be blamed for being this brand of a racist by a natural inclination. Such a position
has been taught.. Certainly, the finger must point at the control points in today’s brand of civilization. These are the media, government and,
surprisingly, basic science itself. The citizen is blameless. The citizen only knows what it is told. The various social institutions all share a
heavy hand in forming the public mind about what is and what is not. So, the average citizen sees an unmistakable UFO and not a single one of those
areas mentioned gives any support. And little comfort comes from fellow members of the public. Authority figures up and down the list of all
agencies speak out to silence legitimate speculations. They are believed. The have the proper initials after their names. Their supposed expertise
is a heavier influence on the attitudes, beliefs and opinions of the general public than the words of another mere fellow human that had a sighting
last night. Each one of those controlling areas of our modern world has a reason for reacting has it does. None of them operate alone but all are
interrelated sometimes to a degree. Whether purposeful, benign ignorance or motivated by less than pure factors, the honest, simple truth of the
whole matter remains hidden from full view when it need not be so.
On ATS, the UFO racist will not want to be called by that terminology. They prefer the term skeptic as it conveniently allows an escape route, a
high-minded intellectual exist. Never mind literally tons of supporting data for the existence of ETs at our world after half a century, the easy way
out is to not accept anything and, thus, a pristine slate can be kept: humans 1, ETs zero. Absolutely no evidence found. For the UFO racist, explain
away one dubious report and you have explained them all.
However, the UFO racist is a dying breed. While the core of that position was once a center point around which humanity rallied with anthropocentric
philosophies, religions, faulty science and world views, the old ways are fading fast, ushered in by none other than the pesky UFOs themselves, our
own efforts to emulate them, tons of scientific discoveries and mere understandings that the Universe is not quite or simple as our wise men once
taught. For decades now about half of earth’s inhabitants have believed that UFOs are evidence of alien ships. No scientific determinations
involved or needed. Not one. Merely common minds at work with common experiences. Yet science plods along, just starting to consider that ETs may
be out there somewhere, but UFOs in our midst? Oh, those things are just remnants of that old joke.
To be clear, any person that comes to ATS to deny that ETs exist, whether on stars elsewhere or via a visiting UFO is out of step with what they
should believe according to the principles of Political Correctness (which is becoming the law of the land). If not, such a person is a racist of the
first order. While some individual threads and post on ATS regarding UFOs and ETs may be bogus, the larger question already has an answer and must be
recognized for its worth and from a position that gives credit to the entire decades of UFO activity that is known to the public and cast a suspicious
eye toward those agencies that have their own decades of secrets. If that makes such agencies and fields of science UFO racists, so be it. I
didn’t make the rule, I merely defined it.
