#376095 Free Speech Absolutism

Posted PLEASUREMAN on 20 August 2017 - 12:04 PM

This is a long overdue wake-up call to the right, which has traditionally been concerned with religious expression, the right to bear arms, and the consequences of federalization of government power.  Those are indeed worthy concerns (although one might dispute the right's effectiveness at addressing them), but speech is the right from which all other rights flow.  Without speech we cannot voice grievances, we cannot assemble, we cannot sue for our other rights.  Without speech we cannot lift the veil on propaganda and untruth, we cannot question or examine or even reason.  Attacking the right of speech is not merely an act of silencing but an act of stupefying--to render stupid.

Anglin's forced silencing is shocking, the moreso because it came via corporate power, not government, and therefore showed at once how totally our first amendment rights have been nullified.  In blatant contravention of Marsh v. Alabama, which concerned the right to speech on privately owned sidewalks in a company town, the corporations that control key segments of the Internet--domain registration and hosting--have determined what cannot be said in public.  Google et al own the sidewalks, and have decided this gives them the right to suppress speech at will--which puts them in direct violation of the United States Constitution.

Among other things we can do is to educate the public--our friends, family, community--of the very strong arguments against these anti-speech moves.  Here, for example, is what I posted to Face***k:

Quote

For those concerned by recent attacks on speech, read Marsh v. Alabama, a Supreme Court decision which held that a private organization cannot suppress public speech simply because it owns the public thoroughfares and meeting places in which public speech must take place. So too does this apply to the corporations which own important parts of the Internet's infrastructure. It is not their right to suppress speech, even or especially on their private networks.
https://en.wikipedia...arsh_v._Alabama

The hackneyed phrase in circulation among anti-speech liberals is "freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences", which like most hackneyed phrases is a lie in service to an injustice.  As a matter of fact, freedom of speech means nothing if it does not come with freedom from consequences.  The only acceptable response to argument is counter-argument.  It is never violence, it is never expulsion from society, it is never imprisonment or fines, it is never economic punishment--for if any of these things is allowed, then open debate is infringed.  And if open debate is infringed, then our democracy itself is controlled by those with the power to sanction speech.  Because men benefit from sanctioning criticism of their misdeeds, this inevitably means the ruin of democracy itself.

As a reminder of a point made in a previous discussion, right of speech and assembly are essential to maintaining social equality within a community--without it, concentrated power is free to enslave those beneath it.  In the past, objection to speech (counter-argument or social influence) occurred within a tangible network of balanced and direct social relationships.  Today the difference is that community social life is diluted and community boundaries have dissolved, and as they have dissolved we are brought into larger, more intangible networks where there is frequently no coherence to the connections, and a severe imbalance in power relationships.

For example, someone a thousand miles away, whom you have never met, and to whom you have no meaningful social relationship, can attack you for your speech.  Here I am drawing a distinction between arguing against you, which is permissible, and attacking your speech rights themselves, either by direct or indirect suppression.  In this we have a one-way exercise of power and its only point is to prevent your speech rights from being exercised.  This is as much in violation of the right to free speech as is a government agent fining or jailing you for criticism.

Important in this distinction is the element of balance.  If two people wish to disassociate from each other over a difference of views, that is permissible and natural.  If a group hears the speech of one person and chooses to ignore him, that is permissible and natural.  But when groups of people choose to punish a speaker, or large corporations choose to take away his voice in public venues, then there is an imbalance that is plainly evil.  The right not to hear speech is easily exercised, but it cannot extend to the right to force others not to hear it, or it becomes tyrannical.

Such soft tyranny has grown as public life has shrunk and weakened, in part because this change to public life removes crucial emotional supports and thus generates hostility and insecurity between groups and individuals.  Previously, such insecurity was evident at the height of the Red Scare, and predictably accompanying it were egregious attacks on speech--via McCarthyism, blacklists, investigation of associates, etc.  Ironically, it is those who once preached against the blacklists who are now full-heartedly promoting this new assault on speech, and it is the organizations most indebted to free speech rights--the press--who are encouraging or defending the assault.  Such is the way ideologies have become ugly mutations of themselves in our society.

The final element to note is that this assault on speech is not merely the product of suspicion and corporate power, it is in every respect a moral panic--an intense, irrational fear of some evil which threatens all of society.  This is easy to demonstrate by numbers alone--the numbers of people who purportedly antagonize the mob's moral sensibilities are small, and more significantly they are powerless against the mob, let alone the corporations collectively worth trillions of dollars, or the politicians who control nearly every important office.  Here the imbalance of power reaches ridiculous proportions and gives the lie to the moral panic.

All of which is to say, that when speech is under irrational, overbearing, and evil assault, it must be irrationally and tenaciously defended.  Defend it as though it is your last right to defend.  Speak and assemble--defend your right with your right.

Love of freedom is irresistible.

#324458 Obamaism in the rear view mirror

Posted PLEASUREMAN on 20 January 2017 - 05:42 PM

In the end it was Obama who was the celebrity president:  hollow, arrogant, bored, and easily controlled by the Washington apparatus, clutching a token peace prize while involving himself in more violent conflicts than his predecessors.  Not much different than you'd expect of a junior senator who lucked into the job because he ran against bewildered stuffed shirts (and pantsuits) and looked the part.  A celeb for all seasons.

As a result he has no legacy, and serves as a reflection of an amoral and empty pseudo-liberalism that supports global capitalism and reactionary pandering.  His base are people who say they feel hurt and sad yet can show no injury--adult children waving their hankies at a human muppet who read sentiment off a TelePrompTer for eight years.  "Love Wins" and "Refugees Welcome"--affirmations of solipsistic morons trapped in a self-hug--are now the corporate branding of selfishness.  They are slogans to help you forget Chinese factories with suicide nets and the ugliness of addiction and hedonistic lifestyles that this pseudo-liberalism reduces to.

Scrub away the airbrushing and you have a glib warmonger, a clumsy and careless policymaker, a passive-aggressive egotist, and a first class presidential golfer, a man who entered politics in hock up to his eyebrows and who retires a multi-millionaire.  But doesn't he just look the part?

#179599 Public School and Diversity

Posted Stiles on 25 July 2014 - 09:48 AM

I just completed my first year of teaching.  Most of what I'll say in this post won't really surprise any of you racist pieces of s**t here on MPC, but it might be helpful if you're considering homeschooling.

I taught 6th graders at a school district that was, until a few years ago, very small and very white.  It was the kind of town where the school staff probably went to church with most of the parents of their students.  It was known in the immediate area as the place to go for good schools.  Like every district I've worked for, the superintendent is a corrupt shitbag surrounded by a small army of ass kissing sycophants.  A few years ago they had a bit of a budget problem, so to make some money fast they opened the school district.  Before this, they kept the schools white by having staff that drove around and verified addresses; this kept DeShaun's mom from lying about his address to get him in.  They removed that requirement in order to get more students and thus more funding.  Since the district is fairly close to Dallas, all of those good boys and girls who don't do nuffin but get kicked out of school anyway were able to flood into the district.  This was, of course catastrophic.

Immediately the district's test scores dropped.  Previously, this district was full of schools that were always Exemplary or Recognized, which means a high percentage of students passing the STAAR test, which is the Texas standardized test.  Even the schools that were on the poor side of town did pretty well.  With the influx of vibrant diversity, the scores dropped and everybody started panicking.  Don't let anybody fool you, either.  Those test scores are the ONLY metric anybody cares about.  

So when I started teaching, the district was still struggling to handle their newly vibrant student population.  We had a discipline system that was created to address the typical problems of a white, small town.  I have no doubt it was a terrific system when it was created, but it just cannot handle typical black behavior.  I think Pleasureman was the first person I ever heard talk about how whites are inherently high order, while blacks are inherently low order.  I knew what he meant, but given control over classes of whites, blacks, and Mexican kids, it's painfully clear.  

Most black students, simply put, are not fit for classrooms designed for white children.  The white classroom, the white teacher, and the white students all want some order.  They want quiet when they try to work.  Chaos isn't enjoyable for them.  That isn't to say white kids don't like cutting up and cutting loose, but if they are expected to learn, they want to do it in an organized fashion.  Black students, on the other hand, cannot understand why they can't talk over each other.  They don't get why they can't talk over their teacher.  They don't understand why they're getting in trouble for yelling in class.  They're upset that they can't sing, or dance, or listen to music loudly.  Sitting there, being quiet, is nearly impossible for a lot of my black students.  Part of this was their age, but the majority of my white and Mexican students were able to control themselves, even when they were bursting with energy.  Blacks just think you're a weirdo for not wanting them to rap a little in the middle of a lesson.

To kind of give you an idea, here is what a typical class might look like.  I had to monitor the hallways in between classes (more on this in a bit), so I had to start each class outside of my room.  I give students a small assignment to work on before the lesson starts.  When I walk in, out of 30 students, maybe 20 have completed the assignment and are talking quietly with their friends, or are working on it.  The remaining students are usually the black students.  They're doing a variety of things.  Most common is yelling at each other in conversation.  They yell over each other, they yell at each other, they yell across the room.  They sit in small groups, yelling at each other, usually with one repeating something over and over at the top of her lungs, something like "OH MY GAH!  OH MY GAH!".  Some of them are up and chasing each other around.  A lot of times they'd be dancing or singing.  I'd get them under control and start handing out discipline, to a chorus of "What?  I didn't even do anything!  I was just talking!"

So I'd start the lesson.  During the lesson, the black students are shouting out.  I found that there is no real way to stop them from shouting out answers or opinions.  If you get a lesson they really enjoy, they'll only shout enthusiastic answers, but they will shout out.(Tip : If you can relate your lesson to a recent horror movie in any way, black kids will like your lesson)  You can write them up all day every day for it, but they just can't help themselves.  If you do get them to raise their hands, they can't do it without going "Ooooooo oooo ooo ooooooo!" while they wave their hands and stand up.  Usually, though, they'll just start having a loud conversation that interrupts everybody else.  When you call them on it, they argue that they weren't doing anything but talking.  To a black kid, talking loudly during a lesson isn't anything bad.  The chaos and noise of these conversations is normal for them.  If you've ever been around groups of black people, you know what I'm talking about.  That conversational order, that process of listening and talking, is mostly foreign to them.  They want to talk, at the same time, getting louder and louder.  

This wasn't just my low scoring kids, either.  I had black girls and boys who were meticulous with their work, high scorers, good readers and writers.  Intelligent kids.  They still did this, though, all of the time.  It's a cultural thing, and it is completely incompatible with classrooms that you or I would learn in.  The lack of future time orientation is another big problem.  More than once, I would address a black student directly.  "If you do that one more time today, I'm going to call your parents."  A lot of black parents are fond of belt discipline, and their kids would tell me that.  So I'd give them a few chances, then tell them I'd call their parents.  They'd still do whatever I'd told them not to.  I'd tell them I'd call their parents, and they'd start crying, hysterically, knowing they were going to get "a whuppin."  I'd ask them why they continued acting up after I'd told them I'd call their parents, and they'd always answer "I don't know.".  And they didn't know.  This would happen to the same kids, over and over, and they'd never learn to stop before it got to that point.  It was mind boggling.  I had white and Mexican kids that I'd had to threaten to call parents once all year.  After that, when they got close to that point, they'd shut up and sit down quietly for the rest of class.  

Another fundamental difference between black students and white and Mexican students is the way you have to talk to them.  I learned that with white kids, you can be gently firm.  Mostly they'll correct their behavior.  If you get too sharp with them too fast, it gets them really upset.  If you get harsh with them, they assume they made a huge mistake.  Black kids, on the other hand, are used to being talked to in a loud, commanding voice.  You try gentle firmness with a black kid, and he or she will assume you're weak and unfit to lead them.  I had one girl tell me she wasn't afraid of any man that wasn't black.  I found that if you get a little loud, a little harsh, they tend to listen.  We had a great black female teacher who was aces at getting black kids to listen to her.  You could hear her yelling from down the hall.  So sometimes I would be a little louder and tolerate less nonsense from the black kids, because that's what they responded to.  My principal pulled me aside and told me I was being too harsh, despite the fact that I wasn't even close to as loud and demanding as the black teacher.  It was my job to let the black kids run roughshod over me, I guess, in the interest of acting like a good, neutered white.

I want to point out that most of the behavior of the black kids wasn't malicious or mean-spirited.  I had a lot of smart and sweet black kids who acted like this, but again it's a cultural thing.  I liked a bunch of these kids, and recognized them as decent, but they were wholly incapable of existing within the framework of what I consider a normal classroom.  Not to be a corny, backpedaling f****t, but I also had several quiet, smart, well-behaved black kids.  They got a lot of s**t from their peers, though.  The black kids would sneer "Oh, she never get in trouble" or "she always good" to the really good black students.  They'd try like hell to get the good kids to act foolish, and ridicule them for not joining in.  Again, not to be a corny f****t, but it takes some kind of guts for an 11 year old to reject that kind of peer pressure.

Our hallways were also a mess.  All of the black kids would group up and essentially block the hallways, yelling at each other, dancing, chasing each other, or just standing there rapping or singing.  They made it mandatory for teachers to go into the hallways and break up these groups, which would break up and immediately reform down the hallway.  Again, calling out the students and applying discipline resulted in screeching "I didn't do nothing!  You gonna write me up for TALKING!?" (Answer : yes).  The students were supposed to have a two minute passing period, but another holdover from the white days was no late bell.  So you'd have black kids saunter in ten or fifteen minutes after they were supposed to be in class.  Of course, when they walk in late, all of their friends yell out "Ohhhh you late!" and they argue back and forth, and once again I'm wasting class time calming everybody down because there was some minor distraction that turned into a full scale yelling conversation about who was late, who was in the bathroom, and was she taking a boo-boo?  Oh my gah, she was takin a boo-boo!  When these kids started up, you could see the rest of the class just hang their heads and slump in their chairs.  They hated the bullshit as much as I did.

Our administration was caught in limbo.  Almost all of the repeat offenders who were getting detentions, in-school suspension, and going to alternative school were black, many were Mexican, and few were white.  In an equality-focused and diverse school system, this presents a problem on paper.  We normally had a ten step process to wind up in alternative school.  With problem minorities, this was often ignored until they had racked up 15 or more.  I was told, off the record, that this was to make sure that when the parents came in screaming racism, they could show them that their students had been given far more chances than they should have been.  This lead to situations where a student would get three or four office referrals in a day, and the administration would group them together and talk to the student, deciding to make the referrals not count as discipline infractions.  Meanwhile, one of my students, a white girl, got into a shoving match with a boy.  First big infraction, immediately sent to alternative school.  Admin was eager to get some whites in there to bolster the numbers so we didn't look racist.  One black kid, who was a notorious troublemaker, only had to serve three days of his 30 day stint in alternative because his mom complained and everybody backed down.  The kid was immediately in trouble again, but never got sent back to alternative school.  School administration wants nothing more than to avoid rocking the boat.

So, to boil down this gigantic post, a handful of vibrantly diverse students can essentially hold a school hostage.  If you have gutless administration and education geared towards a white standard, a lot of black students will be unable to handle it.  This is bad for the white kids and the black kids.  When I worked in majority black schools, the staff was able to work better in the chaotic environment.  They were allowed to do things that we couldn't, like play music.  Playing music seems to help a lot for whatever reason.  I thought it was insane to see teachers playing R&B while they tried to teach.  I get it now.  Black kids don't do very well in quiet, orderly classrooms.

TRIGGER WARNING

#213288 Cuckservatism: the megathread

  • 123

Posted PLEASUREMAN on 28 July 2015 - 12:06 AM

Our corner of the Internet has been aflutter lately about the term "cuckservative" and the discovery that the alt right uses it to describe pseudo-cons eager to endorse whatever the latest Twitter-fueled liberal craze is.  Tranny Bruce Jenner?  "Leave him alone!" demands Grover Norquist, because he's "good on taxes".  Gay marriage?  "We should insist on it," avers David Brooks, whose wildly cuckservative piece on Ta Coates' childish new book deserves its own thread and possibly its own forum.  (Brooks' review is such thinly disguised sadomasochism--Coates' words sear him, slap him, then fill his ears--that it reads like a coded classified ad from the 50s.)

Pieces in The New Republic and now BuzzFeed ogle and stroke their chins about this surprising, titillating new term in avant-garde political discourse.  The cuckservative right joins in via The Daily Caller, advancing the typically cuckservative idea that the word is actually all about sordid Mandingo fantasies (well they would think that, wouldn't they).

No one seems sure who coined the term--a search of MPC's database shows the earliest reference to it came from someone quoting the Twitter account @Cuckservative on April 4th.  But it immediately captured everyone's imagination as a fitting label for establishment conservatives who, when confronted with barely coherent liberal jabber, are spineless at best and eagerly servile at worst.  The word was perhaps inspired into being by Donald Trump's candidacy, which itself provoked a cuck chorus of shocked and offended Republicans who had been responsible for crushing genuine conservatism and replacing it with a deformed cuckoo of endless war, corporate oligarchy, and whatever moral boundary liberals stopped just short of ten years minutes ago.

Establishment conservatives are in fact sinecured opportunists who are either too venal or too idiotic (or, most likely, both) to recognize that political conservatism no longer has any meaning.  This conservatism cannot say that it conserves anything because it is in favor of a chaotically destructive free market and its social habits are nothing if not depraved.  The emblematic establishment con is someone who talks his ex-girlfriend's daughter into aborting their love child, or who cucks his own son and then denies it after his daughter-in-law kills herself.  On no issue do these people have the slightest credibility, and as to character they are like understudies to lead-poisoned Roman emperors.  Or else are simpering, childish, figuratively and literally crippled nullities.

But although all this attention to the word "cuckservative" is entertaining, the only one we really care about is BuzzFeed's because it mentions us.

Right away Joseph Bernstein rolls into the racial angle--well, it's right there in the clickbait, SEO friendly headline:

Behind The Racist Hashtag Some Donald Trump Fans Love

A little sidebar here, but the reason we love Trump is precisely because he's the ultimate joke on a thoroughly corrupt and inane political system.  I think I speak for most in saying that our dearest hope is that Trump utterly destroys the Republican party, which has become so clownish that it's beyond salvation.  And do we need any more evidence for that than this:

:republican:

We don't actually believe that Fuhrer Trumpenkrieg is about to institute an American Reich, kick out all the Mexicans, and make sodomy a criminal offense.  We just know with a certainty beyond liberal imagining that a system that produces Hillary Clinton and ¡Jabe! Bush as leading candidates for president is on the verge of collapse.  It is not just corrupt and stupid, it is totally devoid of sanity.  We're ahead of liberals in that we realize this--we're not looking to test Jeb into mouthing a few platitudes that make us feel better, we just want to watch the Bush dynasty burn.

Getting back to Bernstein:

Quote

The explosion of the movement, which is in many cases explicitly racist, has prompted tortured meditations from some libertarian bloggers and commentators about the place of intolerance in their politics:

It seems like the only place where anyone cares what libertarians have to say is on the Internet.

Quote

The precedent here is #GamerGate, a movement that similarly combined retrograde cultural politics and anonymous harassment with the bleeding-edge visual grammar of the meme internet, and impelled a similar round of self-examination among mainstream game writers.

"Anonymous harassment", also known as raping your Twitter mentions, to which I would add:



Still, we at MPC do pride ourselves on our bleeding-edge visual grammar--thanks, Joe!  We figured out long before Jews like Bernstein that the soft underbelly of the liberalism of social justice and microaggressions and wanting people thrown in prison for saying "nagger" was its extreme vulnerability to mockery.  The one cure for the misery of modern life is laughter at its absurdity, and once you begin laughing you'll never want to go back to the dour, joyless MiniTruisms of modern liberalism, which actually asks you to believe that Bruce Jenner is now a woman because Bruce Jenner got fake tits.

The absurdity is that this liberalism thinks it's on the right side of history--thinks there is a right side of history, as opposed to an endlessly refracting moral prism which shows a version of the gazer.  Liberalism's arrogant assumptions are comical and this is regularly demonstrated, as when in social surveys they consistently fail to accurately describe what other groups think about themselves.  They have been graded (by themselves) on a Ta Coates-like curve all their lives and are now certain that their self-indulgent intellectualism will sort everything out--as if we've never seen mistakes on a grand scale in human history.

Bernstein himself amply demonstrates the fatuity of this liberalism in his writing:

Quote

Like GamerGate, and like much of the major harassment on the internet in 2015, “cuckservative” finds its roots in the intersection of web nerd culture and the politics of cultural hate. And just like #GamerGate, even many of the prominent anti- “cuckservatives” — the people who use the term — aren’t quite sure where exactly that is.

Strangely, liberals love to toss around the word "hate" as they strain against their leashes.  Frankly, no one hates as unreservedly and viciously as a liberal, who is all bitchiness and politics-of-personal-destruction over impossibly trivial matters.  And no one hates like a Jew, a race that has its own Orwellian hate organizations like the ADL and SPLC.  I'm almost at a loss when I see liberals unhinge themselves about everything from calling Asian people "Orientals" to tweeting "#AllLivesMatter", and then call anyone else "haters".

But here's the money shot that I've been leading up to:

Quote

MPC and TRS are, respectively, My Posting Career, a kind of 8chan-meets-far-far-right-politics forum, and The Right Stuff, a white supremacist blog dedicated to “Reinvigorating dialogue among a disparate and edgy right-wing” and “Inflaming anuses among the childish and regressive left-wing.” The Right Stuff, which has an incredibly active commenter community, has clearly played a role in popularizing the movement. But it’s deep within a subfourm of My Posting Career where an earlier reference to the term “cuckservative” appears, beneath a copied tweet by the conservative activist Grover Norquist.

Posted Image

We like The Right Stuff guys, and we even like the juvenile nihilism of 8chan (it's not like we haven't stolen memes from them before).  If it somehow f**ks up the liberal establishment, we're for it.  Because this is an establishment that is knowingly destroying the world it lords over while arrogantly refusing to be argued with.  These are people who believe in fining you six figures for not baking a cake to celebrate the mock wedding of two fags who will soon be getting drilled by random Grindr users.  Cakes are that f**king critical.

Quote

That’s right: These aren’t garden variety conservatives, for whom reflexive support of Israel has become a core value. Indeed, supporting Israeli foreign policy to the detriment of white Christians is one of the hallmark traits of the “cuckservative”; Enkisson’s Twitter is particularly, though not uniquely, anti-Semitic for a member of the movement.

Anti-Semitic?  Whoa, sounds most uncool, Joseph Bernstein.  How could anyone dislike (self-serving, hypocritical, sexually neurotic, nepotistic, histrionic) Jews?

Quote

(Enkisson is also a proto-GamerGater who was tweeting antagonistically at GamerGate villain Anita Sarkeesian as far back as 2011).

Tweeting antagonistically.  Very troubling.

Quote

That “cuckservative” comes from the place where forum trolls, white supremacy, and GamerGate meet shouldn’t come as a surprise. As I wrote earlier this month, mobile services like Kik have enabled a new group of young white supremacists who are totally fluent in the art of internet persuasion, for whom irony poses no contradiction to the intensities of race hate.

"White supremacist" is the penis-stroking slur of preference for the new liberalism.  It's meaningless, liberally handed out (none other than Ta Coates, a f**king Tracy Morgan-style retard, called Mitt Romney a "white supremacist"), and completely used up.  We don't f**king care anymore, airhead.  Call us racist, white-supremacist, neo-Nazis, or anything you think will stick.  We're still the ones laughing, and you're still the humorless nags holding show trials about words.  We'll win, you'll lose.

Posted I Mildly Touched Richard Dawkins on 03 October 2016 - 10:57 AM

This got long, and rambling.  Perhaps worst of all for MPC, this got sincere. Real as f**k, yo. But hell with it:

For all its Vox Day-ness, SJWs always lie is damn good stuff.  Never apologize.  Never surrender.  Especially never surrender the narrative.

Trump is already ahead of Romney. He's polling closer in blue states-heck, Washington is just about in play.  NJ too.  Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, PA-when were these last in the game?  Hes even holding steady with Romneys numbers in California. Even New mexico will come down to how Johnson's 24% collapses nov 8th.

By any measure, Trump is the best Republican candidate since Reagan. Bush I coasted on Ronnie.  Dubya got a split decision by judicial fiat, and barely managed to put away JOHN KERRY in 04 with a point here or there.

I have not a word of criticism.  Every scandal faded when he ignored it. The entire media elite on both sides has only held him to a tight race with a near certain win (many paths to victory!) and a potential electoral landslide. His gaffes arent not a bit worse than anyone elses.

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood...and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."

Be as alpha as you like.  Be as silver tongued and fearless as you like.  Any of us-anyone else- would have long since broken. Its been a year and a half and every day from every side, Trump has been under unremitting, vicious, downright depraved attack.

I mean- we forget, you know?  Not to get mushy...no, f**k it.  Lets get mushy. Lets get real.

Theres no reason in HELL to do this.  For all the s**tlib conspiracy theories, he has the favors, the connections to get out of any supposed debt or legal tangle.  Hes been good friends with the Clintons, the Bushes, the Kennedys, a dozen others.

His name, his family, his company, his legacy, his health, his pride, his history; his life-both his social and literal life-all of it thrown on the altar. Not to mewl cuck BS but because he loves this rotten shell of failing dreams.  He loves the country that gave his family everything, and he has pledged his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor to fight for her in terrible peril.

Damn us all.  Damn us all to hell.  A year and a half ago every cockswinging deplorable was jerking off to Teddy Cruz and glumly ready to suck it up and vote Jeb. So we could get our amnesty with a side of guac before we ran to some f**king hideyhole. Maybe let our kids turn ten before the jigs moved in next to the spics. So we could huddle down and "enjoy the decline."  Maybe catch a piece or two of bluehaired vagina while the Romes our fathers built-not just one, but a dozen Romes from coast to coast- rotted and burned.

Criticize? Comment?  The unlimited hubris of it.  We were WHIPPED, gang.  We joked about road wars to whistle past the f**king graveyard because we knew it'd never be that good. Just slow rot and shitty jobs until we died, getting older and weaker and fewer while an endless horde of muds twerked in the ruins of our grandeur.

70 years old.  Taking 15 months of endless hate to take a chance at 8 years more.  

The more I think of it, the more it moves me.  I didn't think we got men like this anymore.  Laugh if you like. I dont give a damn. Donald Trump turned his back on endless, unlimited fame, wealth, hedonism, luxury and peace.  Cincinnatus left a plow, not a throne.

I dont care if he ain't couth.  I dont care if he had every wife in Christendom, or missteps ten times or ten thousand times, or doesnt hand me every policy I love on a golden platter.

Theres a story, about Washington. After the war, with no money coming, a number of officers started the Newburgh Conspiracy-plotting a coup.  Fascinating stuff, but the gist is this. Washington found out, and went to address them.  He gave a speech-great, beautiful speech-to little effect.  In a last attempt, he pulled out a letter from a congressman promising (again) money.  Started to read it, and faltered.  
He took out his glasses. Something almost none of them had seen him wear. And said:  

"Gentlemen, you will permit me to put on my spectacles, for I have not only grown gray but almost blind in the service of my country."

From anyone else,almost any other man in history that would be grotesque pandering.  But Washington was really everything they say he is.  And his men, these tough bastards from Saratoga and Valley Forge, wept.  The conspiracy ended.

I never thought Id see a leader like that.  I never thought they'd make another.

Call me naive.  Call me glorystruck, blind,  a sycophant and a fool.  I dont care.

That's how I feel about Donald From the By God Celebrity Apprentice Trump.

We say "God Emperor" for ironic detachment. A fantasy from Dune or a silly game for overgrown manchildren.  The symbols of our cultural degeneracy used as a wall to shield us from the terrible hope we feel.  We nitpick and niggle to stay on the details of this and that maneuver to hide away what we're scared to say.  Using the same humorously ironic detachment we condemn in straggling millennial twerps to hide from ourselves.

He isn't a "shitlord" or a fantasy figure, or a meme.

The terrible, terrifying truth is for the second time-for all the warts and wives- we got another man that goddamned GOOD.  We deserve-hah.  After decades of failure, neglect, tomfoolery and greed, we deserve to get exactly what they say he is. Every filthy lie, every depraved fantasy of the sniveling f**king cowards we call fellow citizens is our due.

But by the grace of God-the no s**t, real deal, grace and blessing of the Great Jehovah- the dying remnant of our gangrenous nation flipped one last card.

And it came up a Trump.

Im with him.  If he wants me to go to Valley Forge or hell, Im with him. Even if he loses, he gave it all, all the costs he'll bear-and he will suffer terribly- to cut a path for us out of the wilderness.

Im going back to ironic detachment now.  But I wanted to speak my mind to say that I no s**t, no homo, no takebacks, no lie-love Donald J. Trump. And the only thing we could ever do to repay this truely great man, is Make America Great Again.

#342979 Kyle Chapman and His Crew of Lunatics May Have Just Saved Western Civilization

When Based Stick Man first burst into our consciousness on March 4th, I was excited and pleased. As you know, I believe part of what makes street violence so effect is that it produces iconic images, propagandistic photos that sway the normies to our side. By that standard, Based Stick Man was a huge winner.  I mean, just look at that photo. It's perfect in almost every detail. The action pose, the flag on the shield, the baseball helmet, even the industrial respirator. Based Stick Man is anonymous, but he's not menacing, and it's because of that baseball helmet and that flag on the shield. Baseball helmets are 100% American with 100% positive associations. Little leaguers wear baseball helmets, for God's sake. And who but a true patriot would paint an American flag on his shield. He still loves the Red, White and Blue!

That photo and the video of Kyle busting a stick on the head of an anonymous villain by-passed our rational brain and plunged deep into the America, f**k Yeah! part. It was ionic in spades.

Afterwards, when the whole Kyle Chapman story came out, I was dubious that he'd ever do anything of value again. He had a criminal background and had bounced from job to job. Not promising material, I thought. But I was wrong.  It turns out that Kyle Chapman is an excellent organizer, a decent public speaker, and a natural leader of men. Check out this interview...



There's a plain-spoken and appealing humility in Kyle. He is very American, in the sense that he couldn't be anything else but American, and he physically put his ass on the line for this country, and we all saw it. Because of these qualities, and because he's canny enough to use them, he's become not just an iconic photo but an actual leader of the alt-right. Now he's organizing a crew of iron-fisted patriots to turn back the tide of poz. That's f**king heroic. But forget that for a second and go back to the baseball helmet. Take a look at this video..



I love this video when it pans down the row of fighters. It's like an iconic moment from the best sort of action movie, when a motley crew of roustabouts, ne'er-do-wells, bikers, chads, minor league baseball players and one giant fat tranny have to save the world from evil. It's The Seven Samurai for 21st Century American Shitlords.

Now, watch at it again and notice what they're not wearing. They're not dressed in all camo. This isn't some goofy militia LARP'ers playing dress-up soldiers. The Oathkeepers and 3%'ers were at Berkeley in their tacticool camo, but they didn't leave the park and engage with Antifa on the streets. That was Kyle's crew that did that. Likewise, except for the first biker, they're not wearing all black. (Hey Antifa, what idiot decided it was a great idea to dress up like faceless video-game henchmen?) All black is cool for a single rebel, but menacing for a mob.

As for what Stick Man and friends ARE wearing, it is LITERALLY the best thing they could have worn. They nailed it. They literally could not have done better.

In the first place, they're all dressed differently and individually. American don't like uniforms. We're individuals, not cogs in a machine. Dressing up in brown shirts and goose-stepping down the street doesn't appeal to ordinary American, only goons. By this same rule, LARP'ing in camo is silly.

Sporting gear in bright colors is non-threatening to normies. Baseball helmets, again. By the same token, dressing like a Chad, in jeans and a button down oxford, is a winner withe the normies. A fit young man, with neat hair and neat clothing clocking a filthy hippies is iconic.

Color-wise, unless you're going for the biker look, which is sort of played out, avoid black.  Red, white and blue are always going to be in style for MAGA brawling.

Posted Image

Here's a skinhead(?) with an Apple watch(!) and the Alt-Right Spartacus. I guess the guy in black is on our side, but there's no doubt about who Spartacus is fighting for. He's dressed in a ludicrous fashion, but those flag shorts tell us everything we need to know. He's a heroic American eccentric doing battle with the forces of evil, and ICONIC.

Which brings me to another point, Spartacus looks like he's having a Hell of a time. As are those two characters dancing on the dumpster. As is Jesus Will Judge You. As is the Maroon Maniac. As is Kyle's battle buddy, Skywalker, the bearded animal in the yellow helmet and blue shirt seen in this video...



Who knew that when the Saxon Began to Hate it would be such hilarious good fun?  

And that, ultimately, is why I think Kyle and his motley crew of lunatics might have saved Western Civilization on Saturday.  Like Trump, he's shown us how much fun it is to save the world. It's contagious, you want to join Kyle's lunatic band, just like you wanted to jump on the Trumpenwagon. That inspiration to action is a gift of enormous value, you can't manufacture it on purpose, it can only appear in someone genuine like Kyle Chapman.

#357461 The Donald Trump Presidential Archive

  • 107

Posted John Rocker on 17 June 2017 - 02:57 AM

In the chaos of day-to-day outrages, one loses sight of the full impact of Trumpism.

However, it often happens that after my senses have dulled from too much fake news, some pleasant reminder of the 2016 realignment jolts me back to reality. An average citizen of Trumpmerica surprises you. Hope springs eternal once more. Such was the case yesterday evening.

A couple of gentlemen from my local Trout Unlimited chapter joined me on the stream, and in the course of casting our flies we came upon the topic of Amazon and its purchase of Whole Foods. One of my co-anglers, mid-30s with a young family, mentioned a family member stuck working in a giant Amazon warehouse. He went on to decry the death of retail, and how it seemed like "two or three damn companies will own everything before long".

I know both these men fairly well. They're both Scots-Irish Christian kulaks who operate their own small businesses (one with a couple of partners). Not even two years ago, these guys would have been parroting talking points from The Federalist. They both supported Ted Cruz in the GOP primary race. Their political interests had narrowed to a pathetic, tiny Overton strip that amounted to "please, please just leave me alone and let me keep my guns and possibly cut my taxes, thank you."

But as we kept on talking about Amazon, about globalization, about automation and corporate misbehavior, it became clear that these men were no longer libertarians. They may not even realize it, but they're concerned with protecting American labor. There's now a Trumpian language for them to discuss these matters without sounding like a limp-wristed pinko: "ripping us off", "shipping our jobs away", "flooding us with cheap workers". They've begun to place men like Bezos into the same mental category as political hucksters and snake oil salesmen. It's clear that if the globalist cabal has their druthers, someone dear to them will suffer as a result.

And then it occurred to me that the political left, even the old guard, will never give Trump the credit he richly deserves for doing what they could never manage to do. How many trillions of words have bugmen - from Michael Harrington's "The Other America" onward - spilled in a vain effort to appeal to the heartland kulaks I was catching trout with? How many cloying and maudlin anti-corporate appeals?

Yet the delicious morsels of truth (SCALE is awful, elite oligarchs are f**king us, our American way of life is threatened by these ghouls) were always baked into a fetid casserole of shitlibbery. Perot and Buchanan notwithstanding, it was impossible for a self-respecting, fly-flinging, trout-catching, small-business-owning kulak to co-sign these truths before Trump's arrival. If he sympathized with those perspectives, he was also invited to gulp down the poison pills of third-worldism, feminism, revolutionary sexual morals, and his ultimate dispossession and replacement as recompense for "dem historical injussissus".

Trump has split the atom. He has threaded the needle. He has balanced the equation.

And he will never be properly recognized for it in his lifetime.

#274597 How Brexit helps Trump

  • 107

Posted PLEASUREMAN on 24 June 2016 - 09:22 AM

The results of Brexit are overdetermined, but precisely because, leave or remain, the future was foreordained.  The proof of it is that the toppling of this single domino has immediately set several others in motion.  We were only waiting for the first one to fall.

The overexpanded structure of globalism was untenable.  It has escalated conflict across the world with breathtaking acceleration.  It has tried (and now failed) to suppress democratic expression, that one cure and promise that makes men safe and free.  It will die from its own massive weight, and its receding shadow will allow sunlight to touch nations and peoples for the first time in decades.

Most revealingly, the servants of globalism were venal politicians, amoral businessmen, and poisonous anti-democrats.  They were weak and fat and stupid, but by conspiring together thought they had achieved permanent power.  Now they face the end of the End of History, which means that men will shape events, not grey bureaucrats and managerialists scheming together in meetings.

The European Union was the epitome of fragility, narrowly escaping crises on the assumption of inevitability until finally its luck ran out.  And all at once it will now collapse.

As the dominoes continue to fall--Scotland, Denmark, France--the public will see that this is a time of change.  The future that was always looming ahead of them has suddenly disappeared, replaced with:  nothing.  The heart of the world has stopped for several seconds, suspended by this leap forward.  They will now sense the possibility of shaping the future themselves.

In any time of change, the most discredited and uninspiring choice is the status quo, and what embodies that choice more than Hillary Clinton, a 90s throwback whose campaign is formed out of a combination of cronyism, "it's my turn", and inept cynical manipulation.

When the Berlin Wall fell it doomed the presidency of George H.W. Bush, because it told the world that this form of Cold War managerialism and hapless domestic compromising was extinct.  So Brexit dooms the presidential aspirations of Hillary Clinton.

Trump fits liberating change.  The more you hear the world is changing, the more you realize Trump is a leader for that world.

That is what Brexit means for us.

#338158 Wapo shamelessly lies about My Posting Career

For advertisers, algorithms can lead to unexpected exposure on sites spewing hate

"Spewing hate" is the preferred Mrs. Grundy term for questioning any aspect of establishment liberalism, a brain-dead and increasingly prissy ideology of constant verbal wincing.

Quote

As the owner of a small business in liberal Massachusetts, John Ellis was a natural sympathizer of the nationwide call for advertisers to boycott Breitbart News, with its hard-edge conservative politics and close ties to President Trump. But it made Ellis wonder about other, more extreme right-wing sites: Who is placing ads on them?

Yes, a busybody s**tlib would wonder about it, wouldn't he?  Half the country being allowed to participate in national discussion?  Seems a little high to me, Ellis muses.

Quote

What Ellis had stumbled on was a little-known facet of the booming world of Internet advertising. Businesses using the latest in online advertising technology offered by Google, Yahoo and major competitors are also increasingly finding their ads placed alongside politically extreme and derogatory content.

Of course Wapo doesn't mean "extreme" as in Slate, Salon, Black Lives Matter, PETA, HuffPo, or any other whacked out venue where liberals fume and rant about conspiracy theories and talk openly of killing the president or hoping the military stages a coup.  They mean "extreme" as in people who notice that blacks are violent, that diversity doesn't work, that Jews react hysterically to criticism, and that a reckoning is coming for Western civilization and for the entire globalist project owing to its hubristic greed.  Although, yes, we're sexually extreme in that we believe every boy should have two post-op mothers.  Touché, Wapo.

Quote

In a sign of growing frustration, AT&T, Verizon and other leading companies this week pulled their business from Google’s AdSense network in response to news reports that ads had appeared with propaganda from the Islamic State and violent groups.

:lol:

Quote

Some of these sites, the Post found, featured hateful and derogatory content throughout. In others, it was confined to comment sections, where users went far beyond the language used by the sites’ writers, whose expressed views fell closer to the political mainstream.

Finally, the mainstreaming of SCALE is really happening.  No help from the f**king Nazis I keep banning!

Quote

Google’s AdSense, for example, last month ran ads for several companies alongside comments using a slur for African Americans, saying “hang them all.” Other Google-displayed ads, for Macy’s and the genetics company 23andMe, appeared on the website My Posting Career, which describes itself as a “white privilege zone,” next to a notice saying the site would offer a referral bonus for each member related to Adolf Hitler.

:lolnig:

Wapo don't link, but it's worth it for just this one humorless paragraph that aggressively doesn't get the joke.

Quote

“No business wants to be associated with sites like that,” said Andy Kill, spokesman for genetic testing company 23andMe. “If you’re trusting an ad algorithm to do this, this is what can happen,” he said. “It’s frustrating.”

Sure, you say that, Andy Kill, but then why does 23andMe have a HitlerMeter™?

Quote

My Posting Career did not reply to an email seeking comment.

Lie, lie, lie.  I was never sent an email from Wapo.  I checked every email address I've ever used, including the one this website is registered to.  Lazy reporters made no attempt to email me then covered for it by claiming I didn't respond.  Well, what do you expect?  It's a marvel when these glorified bloggers avoid obvious plagiarism.

Quote

The technology companies behind ad networks have slowly begun to address the issue, but warn it won’t be easy to solve. They say their algorithms struggle to distinguish between content that is truly offensive and language that is not offensive in context. For example, it can be hard for computers to determine the difference between the use of a racial slur on a white-supremacy site and a website about history.

Offensiveness, of course, is purely subjective, and culturally-determined--there's no objective standard for it, and for multiculturalism to have any coherence it cannot assume a standard (particularly one that is purely WEIRD in expression).  But liberals liberally paint anything that confuses or bothers them with a "hate" brush, which they assume requires no explanation.  It's the perfect, unbeatable way to protect yourself from other ideas.

We've talking about the liberal attitude to free speech in the past, and this touches on another dimension of it.  To declare that there is an "offensive" exception for political speech (which is what MPC plainly is, where it is not autism-confounding humor) is to denude the entire concept of free speech.  Moreover, to selectively target such political speech for boycott campaigns is to negate the goal that free speech in the modern age is meant to achieve:  to ensure robust debate and argument consistent with the needs of a liberal democracy, and particularly of minority ideologies within it.

But these Bezos wage slaves will have none of this intellectual sophistication, as the dunning, overwrought clickbait article shows.  If we have nothing else, we at MPC have the dignity of not being journalists.

And, incidentally, these cheap Jeff Bezos (f****t Dr. Evil) surrogates are one more BIG reason why you should donate to our cause.  (Do not wait for the PLEASUREJIZYA, brothers.)

Quote

Several said they had requested that networks blacklist those pages, which is easy to do for individual sites but not for entire categories of sites. Automated filters typically miss certain kinds of derogatory speech, and tech companies traditionally have not hired the massive number of people necessary to carefully monitor content on billions of Web pages.

Indeed, one of the perversities of this richly inane political age is that newspapers which hide beyond first amendment law openly support actual blacklists, and only lament that curating them by hand takes so much work!  Careful, liberals, your "What Would Big Brother Do?" wristbands are getting itchy.  This is the declension that "free speech" inevitably sinks to in a mass society--you can say whatever you want, but if you violate the taboos of establishment liberalism, which are largely determined by corporate pigs like Bezos (thanks for the Amazon referral money!), no soup for you.

Quote

Advertisers generally have little choice but to depend on ad networks. The major ones have policies prohibiting advertising on sites featuring discriminatory or hateful speech, but The Post found dozens of apparent violations. Many of the sites where The Post found violations are considered hate sites by the Southern Poverty Law Center, an advocacy group that tracks hate speech.

The SPLC is little more than a group of left-wing Jews putting out their own form of clickbait in order to raise money from senile co-ethnics.  As a scam it's an evergreen, and liberal (usually Jewish) media whores can always count on them to fill out their otherwise spare blog entries.

Quote

Last month, an ad for insurance company Allstate appeared on Alternative-Right.BlogSpot.com, whose comments section praised “Hitler and his National Socialists as a visionary.”

Note the effort to move the goal post to "someone in the comments"--HEY, WHACHA POSTIN, RABBI?  It's worth wondering how many Internet Nazis are mobying Jews (it can't be just bomb threats they're into), as opposed to real-life pizza-delivering intellectuals like Salo's Thomas777.

Quote

Ads for Macy’s, Amazon.com, and even Planned Parenthood, appeared on the racially inflammatory website My Posting Career. Ads to shop on Amazon.com appeared on a site with an article headlined “Yes, I am a Nazi,” and a comments sections peppered with profanity and racial slurs.

:lol: We know about the incongruities of ads here at MPC.  The Wapo paragraph appears to be written in an effort to conflate MPC's erudite SCALE-ism with pro-Nazi views--typical Jew cherry-picking and mendacity.  (Note to media whores reading this:  we hate the Jews only because we love the Jews.)

Quote

Amazon, which also runs an ad network, declined to comment. (Amazon chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos owns The Post).

Well that's one way of avoiding the word filter.

Quote

“[Tech companies] are struggling to adjust to a reality where the same tools that enabled them to connect the world are now being used to drive it apart,” entrepreneur and venture capitalist Noah Lichtenstein said. “This is the crisis of our time: How do you balance the desire to have the Web be open and connected with a rising tide of institutionalized hate and the protection of those who are being attacked?”

Forces driving the world apart?  Sorry, from the window seat of this hate zeppelin it looks more like liberalism--which is fomenting wars in MENA countries, creating refugee crises, supporting massive population movement, and doing it all from antitrust-defying megacorps that farm manufacturing to Asian slave pits--is doing a lot more to "drive the world apart" (typical hackneyed libspeak) than a little old Internet forum that just wants to get straight answers on Sandra Bullock's real gender.

Quote

Emails to contact information listed for Alternative-Right.blogspot.com received no reply. Breitbart News also did not return emails seeking comment about the advertising boycott directed against the site.

I somehow doubt that emails were sent to anyone.

He came into office as the first president in my lifetime who was demonstrably hostile to the nation and completely out of touch with its ordinary way of life. He leaves as somebody who lowered the dignity of the office even more than Clinton did--he acted like a fag, his family was Third World trash, he was deferential to people who hated us (and let himself get shown up by them), he meddled endlessly in divisive micro-events and pushed social engineering, he was an over-the-top starfucker who went on lame podcasts and shoved his ugly wife onto the Academy Awards. All without comment.

Posted Cinco Jotas on 12 November 2016 - 09:19 PM

This is the year that converted me into a believer in Carlyle's great man theory of history. Twenty-one months ago I was posting tweets like this...

Posted Image

And wait... I figured we'd be waiting for a cataclysm, some disastrous event that would plunge us into a sea of blood and fire. What we got was even less expected and more outrageous: a genuine great man of history.  

Don't let the carping of the cat ladies, f****ts and jews turn your head. Trump is the real deal, an Olympian of the first rank, our Augustus. Even that last comparison may not be overstated. Like Octavian after Actium, Trump is in a position of uniquely unrivaled power. He enters Washington as its master. Starting as a political amateur with not much more than name recognition and a twitter account, in ten months he completely burned the GOP to the ground. In the five months after that, he stomped the Clinton machine into the dust of history and broke the back of the Democratic Party. And those weren't even his biggest victories; Hillary was not the final boss.  

Trump's biggest and most important victory was over his toughest opponent: the mainstream media. By humiliating and routing the media, Donald J. Trump is now poised to become the most powerful American president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.



UNPRECEDENTED MEDIA ENVIRONMENT

The biggest coup Donald Trump pulled off was laying waste to the entirety of the American media establishment. I've talked in the past about how Trump has been studying how to beat the media for 25 years, and about how he overwhelms the press with sheer Trumposity. (One analyst compared what Trump does to a DDOS attack.) But that doesn't really recognize the totality of his achievement, nor does it tell us what's coming from President Trump.

Donald Trump makes his own media weather. As a private citizen operating in the world's biggest media market, and as a political candidate with every major newspaper, magazine and television network aligned against him, he was unstumpable. He humiliated and neutralized, in sequence, Fox News, Megyn Kelly, the Washington Post, Morning Joe, the New York Times, and anyone and everyone who dared attack him, and they ALL attacked him.  

Trump defeated the media with a smart phone and a twitter account. He revealed himself as the greatest media troll in the history of mankind, thus winning the allegiance of the best and baddest trolls on the internet. Julius Caesar raised a legion to fight in Gaul; Trump raised the Legion of Kek to fight online. Hillary Clinton spent millions of dollars trying to defeat a volunteer army of NEETs, autists, cranks and shitlords, and failed, big league. We beat the ever-loving s**t out of journalists and Hillary supporters, we made the internet a toxic environment for anyone who challenged Trump. We hammered them until they screamed, and then we hammered them some more. We won the Great Meme War with a comprehensive victory, nothing of the enemy's was left standing at the end. And American journalism is now a smoking wreck. It'll be rebuilt as something entirely different, more partisan and thus more honest, probably more like the British press. We'll see.

To repeat, Trump as a candidate, with every respectable media outlet against him, was unstumpable. Now, imagine President Trump weilding the Bully Pulpit. He will be the Colussus of the age. Do you think petty media "scandals" will topple our new Jupiter? He will rule from a mountaintop smiting those who resist his Olympian reign. He is the God of Media.



UNPRECEDENTED ACQUIESENCE FROM CONGRESS

One of the standard cuck/dem/media talking points is, "Trump will have to learn to work with Congress, or he'll fail."

No, Trump does not have to learn  to work with Congress. Congress has to learn to work with Trump.

On January 20, 2017, the only Republican who will have any leverage over President Trump is Jeff Sessions. Trump owes no part of his victory to anyone in Congress except Sessions. He traded no favors, sought no counsel, made no deals with any congresscuck. In fact, the senate is ONLY in GOP hands because of the Trumpening. Even better, the particular way Trump won--by turning out working-class voters in the upper midwest--means that the cuckiest Republicans will have to depend on some of the Trumpiest voters to win their primaries in 2018. Make no mistake, many Republicans are genuinely terrified of Trump and his supporters. Most of them will not defy the God Emperor, and the few that do will be destroyed by the Kekians meme-lords, an object lesson for the rest.

As for the Democrats. They're a broken party. It's not just that the Clintons sucked up all the resources and tamped down any possible rivals, it's also that Obama is a terrible politician. He's looks good in a suit and is a decent public speaker, but his political skills are s**t. In eight years he not only didn't help the party, he destroyed the party. They've lost the Senate, the House, and nearly three-quarters of the state legislatures. Their political bench is filled with nothing but shrill feminists, downlow brothers, weird-looking Aztecs and enough sweaty, shifty-eyed jews to stock a dozen yeshivas and/or photography stores. Everyone you've heard of is over 70 years old, except Pocahontas, and she's not going anywhere. (Note to Jim Webb, what are you waiting for, friend? Come home to the party of white men.)

Can the Dems stand against Trump in congress? Not if the Republicans are united. What about the filibuster? Two days after the first successful Dem filibuster, Jeff Sessions will replace Mitch McConnell as majority leader and push the button on the nuclear option. Filibusters will be a thing of the past.

Also, new minority leader Chuck Schumer, who's been around Trump for decades, is not stupid. For months, he's been hedging his bets about Trump, occasionally even saying nice things about him. (Schumer has refused to call Trump a racist.)  And, Trump is a negotiator, which means he favors a win-win solution for those that go along. He'll horse trade with Schumer and make sure that he gets something, but when push comes to shove, Trump will get what he wants.

Taken all together, Congress will not be able to impede any part of the Trump agenda.



UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY IN THE SUPREME COURT

In February, Trump will ram through a replacement for Nino Scalia, making the court 5-to-4 "conservative".  (The election might even put some spine in  Chief Justice LightLoafers.)  For this position, I'd like to see Trump nominate a heritage-breed, American Protestant.

After that, it can't be long before the cancer carries away the obstreperous RBG, to be replaced by another Protestant, I hope. The next two oldest are the Reagan-apointee Kennedy at 80, and Breyer (another member of the tribe) at 78. ClarenceThomas, who's now 68, might also retire before the end of Trump's second term.

If all that comes to pass, at the end of Trump's eight years, it will be a 7-to-2 conservative court, with most of the conservative justices in their 50s & 60s. (Alito will be 74, Roberts 69.) With Kagan and the Wise Latina mere speed bumps on the road to history.



UNPRECDENTED CONSTITUTIONAL OPPORTUNITY

Obama and the Clintons destroyed the Democratic Party. They are now almost entirely shut out of politics at the state level, to the point that Republicans are one state legislature away from being able to call a constitutional convention...



Imagine the possibilities! Do you want to end birth-right citizenship? Solidify the Second Amendment?  If President Trump can pull the Republicans to statehouse victory in the 2018 midterms you might see some serious s**t.


UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY TO REMAKE THE WORLD

Trump has both China and Mexico over a barrel. Without American markets China's economy collapses. Without American remittences, Mexico would rise up in revolt. Trump will negotiate with both from a position of strength. We'll still trade with both, but the terms will be more favorable for us.

Trump has promised to turn American energy producers loose, which means he intends to cut out the petro-kleptocracies of the Middle East. We don't need them any more and Americans won't die there anymore. QED.

Russia will do the heavy lifting against ISIS, with US helping in the air and with intel. Based Assad will based.

In Europe, Trump will align us with the nationalist movements. Nigel, Marine & Marion, Frauke, Gert, Viktor et alia will all be allies. Uncle Schlomo will no longer support the globalist poz factories.



This post has to be divided up. In the next part, I'll lay out what I see as the dangers and impediments for the Golden Pepe, how I think he'll govern, and what I think will happen politically going forward.

Let me just say, we're on the edge of something YUUUUUUGE. This is generational transformation in motion.

This is my general thought on HP:

Quote

SWPL adults are obsessed with the books because they create a mythology around entering the managerial elite. The books are about snowflake kids who are misunderstood by their parents and go off to an idealized version of a university, where all their talents are recognized and they get prepped to enter a secret bureaucracy of people just like them. And (not coincidentally) all the characters are either white or wholly assimilated window-dressing minorities.

To build on that a bit I'm going to riff on a friend's idea, so just call me SLYTHERIN :twisted:

Shitlibs, but SWPLs in particular, have turned Harry Potter into their defining political metaphor because it's a perfect expression of one of their core ideas: The elite is somebody else. Harry Potter et al have magical powers from birth, they go to school where they learn secrets nobody in our world does, they run an insular and invisible society that more or less determines that fate of everybody else's, and their world is more interesting, informed and prosperous than ours without any of the hard work we have to do to make our society livable (dragons rotting in the fields).

And yet...they're not the elite. Right? Harry et al have this power and position but they're quick to say that the real power lies with somebody else, some guy with robes and a weird face. Likewise SWPLs and shitlibs have their hands on the machinery of culture and politics, they are wealthy and insulated enough to tell half the country and all of Europe to eat cake on an existential issue like mass immigration...yet they're not the elite. Just ask them. It's somebody else, somebody in a boardroom, like John Forsyth.

Granted, there's a difference between a well-off effete symbol manipulator in Williamsburg and George Soros and Alan Greenspan, or whoever. And in wizard-land, there's a difference between the underdog person and the big bad guy with the weird face. But they're all products of the same isolated culture and expectations. Of course there's something special about us. Of course we deserve to have wonderful things the rest of the world doesn't; we understand things they don't, don't you see this magical diploma? Of course everybody else should live and die by our say-so (this group of wizards likes humans, so they can go about their business; this group doesn't, so humans need to be enslaved), lol at the idea that we would ever listen to what they have to say about anything, though.

In this scenario you can see why Trump is so dangerous. The evil wizard gives the other members of the elite a chance to signal their virtue by fighting him, then they all go back to living exactly the same life of secret power. IRL the perfect hate figure is somebody like GWB, a product of inherited power and wealth and elite training if there ever were one: Protest him, vote him out, but be assured that under his watch the power structure is not going to change.

With Trump we finally have somebody with the potential to wreck the whole setup. In Harry Potter terms, he would be a villain figure who wouldn't try to rule the regular world, he would threaten to shut down the wizard world. He's somebody who doesn't particularly care about the structure they've built up or their status within it. And that is a why he's a real threat: On some level, SWPLs and shitlibs know the power they really have, and they're afraid of losing it. THE BOY WHO LIVED, THE DRUNK WHO PERSISTED

A Buzzfeed tell-all reveals his power level:

Quote

The second form of capitalism that I feel is almost as disturbing, is what I call the Ayn Rand or the Objectivist School of libertarian capitalism. And, look, I’m a big believer in a lot of libertarianism. I have many many friends that’s a very big part of the conservative movement — whether it’s the UKIP movement in England, it’s many of the underpinnings of the populist movement in Europe, and particularly in the United States.

However, that form of capitalism is quite different when you really look at it to what I call the “enlightened capitalism” of the Judeo-Christian West. It is a capitalism that really looks to make people commodities, and to objectify people, and to use them almost — as many of the precepts of Marx — and that is a form of capitalism, particularly to a younger generation [that] they’re really finding quite attractive. And if they don’t see another alternative, it’s going to be an alternative that they gravitate to under this kind of rubric of “personal freedom.”

So I think the discussion of, should we put a cap on wealth creation and distribution? It’s something that should be at the heart of every Christian that is a capitalist — “What is the purpose of whatever I’m doing with this wealth? What is the purpose of what I’m doing with the ability that God has given us, that divine providence has given us to actually be a creator of jobs and a creator of wealth?”

:allears: :allears: :allears:

Quote

The central thing that binds that all together is a center-right populist movement of really the middle class, the working men and women in the world who are just tired of being dictated to by what we call the party of Davos. A group of kind of — we’re not conspiracy-theory guys, but there’s certainly — and I could see this when I worked at Goldman Sachs — there are people in New York that feel closer to people in London and in Berlin than they do to people in Kansas and in Colorado, and they have more of this elite mentality that they’re going to dictate to everybody how the world’s going to be run.

Like an echo chamber in a parenthesis factory, by the end you could almost hang a Jew on every other word.

Quote

In addition, I think you really need to go back and make banks do what they do: Commercial banks lend money, and investment banks invest in entrepreneurs and to get away from this trading — you know, the hedge fund securitization, which they’ve all become basically trading operations and securitizations and not put capital back and really grow businesses and to grow the economy.

Despite the judeo-Christian phraseology in the rest of the article(2014), Bannon just demonstrated his de-scaleing mindset several times over, which was so opaque to Buzzfeed that they simply published it in its entirety.

#210248 Conflict, Aggression, and Humiliation in Modern Politics

Posted PLEASUREMAN on 28 June 2015 - 02:02 AM

When gay activist Hampton Catlin got Brendan Eich forced out of Firefox as CEO, he wrote a blog post about it in the "more in sorrow than anger" vein of gloating:

Quote

People think we were upset about his past vote. Instead we were more upset with his current and continued unwillingness to discuss the issue with empathy. Seriously, we assumed that he would reconsider his thoughts on the impact of the law (not his personal beliefs), issue an apology, and then he’d go on to be a great CEO.
http://www.teamrareb...3/a-sad-victory

Of course, this is never the way it works.  First, any apology given is assumed to be insincere.  Then it is tortured for hidden meaning or stubborn refusal to be abject.  Then it is rejected because there are still hurt feelings and it just isn't going to work out as everyone hoped.  This isn't without meaning.

Catlin's claims in his blog post are plainly bullshit.  Demanding that Eich apologize for "the discrimination we faced" and yet offering to allow him to "keep his personal beliefs" is an illusory compromise--beliefs are meaningless in a democracy if they cannot find political expression.  But this was the actual point of the episode:  to sadistically punish someone and demand total submission.  This political humiliation is not a side effect of the crusade for gay approval, it is in fact the primary goal.

As if his affected blog post were not evidence enough, Catlin decided a year later to remind Eich/humblebrag about getting him fired:



The exchange between Catlin and Eich removes any lingering doubts that the purpose was to wallow in Eich's humiliation.  It seems as if it was also intended to goad Eich into a reaction that Catlin could use to further attack him, and was suspiciously timed to overshadow recent news about Eich's work on WebAssembly.  Another gay man picked up on these aspects of Catlin's tweet:



We know that the push for gay marriage is largely bogus:  of the small percentage of gays who get married, upwards of 75% have no intention of keeping their vows.  Gay activists speak openly of transforming marriage, that is, making it over into a hedonistic partnership disconnected from family and community.  Judging by their behavior, the most important part of a gay marriage isn't forming a sexual or social union, it's ordering a cake from a Christian bakery.

What they wanted was not marriage but the defeat and humiliation of critics of homosexuality.  They didn't want rights to exercise or duties to fulfill--homosexual marriage is uniquely dutiless--they wanted to dominate and punish their targets, silence debate within social networks, and ultimately enforce criminal and civil sanction on political enemies.

To understand the stridency and hostility of this activism and how this fits into the modern trend of leftist politics, we must step back and look at the social changes that gave rise to it.  This also means addressing conservative misconceptions about what has happened and why it has happened.

To start with the misconceptions, the main one is that gay marriage represents liberal politics defeating conservative politics.  I want to reframe this:  what has happened is that the process of atomization has drained society of moral energy.  The rising tide of liberalism is actually the steady erosion of social bonding, the process which creates moral order.  What we see is not gay marriage advancing in perceived legitimacy but the collapse of social life, and thus the destruction of social meaning in marriage itself.

Morality is not a set of rules that people consciously adhere to--it has an almost wholly intuitive character and is tied directly to the formation of social bonds.  Put simply, moral life begins with the internalization of others as part of oneself.  This is most apparent in the intense moral feelings that surround kin relationships, which involve others who are literally part of us genetically.

Previous to mass society and its large scale population movement, the second level of relationships by intensity consisted of networks of families which had interbred within a geographic area.  After this there was the relatedness of countrymen who shared strong cultural and religious values as well as the biological bonds of a relatively static population of larger geographic scope.

These concentric relationship rings comprise an organic social network that provides psychological support and sparks cooperation and altruism because the relationships are genetically driven and highly internalized.

Today, at every level, these relationships have diminished or been supplanted by relationships of lesser intensity and durability:  ideological, class, occupational, avocational, and what I would term relationships of efficiency--for example, obedience to rules as the most reliable way of maximizing resources for oneself.  These comprise the synthetic social networks, transactional and not deeply embedded.

An attenuation of relationship strength has been hinted at in books like Robert Putnam's Bowling Alone, but its ramifications have not yet been fully worked out.  I believe this attenuation overshadows nearly every political development of the past century, and in fact determines most of the political outcomes we have seen, including that of gay activism.

Consider that the last unifying American presidency coincided with a period of ascendant political and social conservatism.  Such unification on a national scale is impossible today due to more fragmented demographics, declining families, and less stable communities.  Urban planning has deliberately increased population movement, which disrupts community formation.  In the Southwest, but increasingly everywhere, immigration has produced dramatic population change.  Meanwhile, family networks are tiny compared to the recent past as couples produce fewer offspring and have less frequent contact with their smaller family networks.  As Putnam has documented, local communal activities that strengthened neighborhood identities are far less common.

This state of attenuated social relationships can be summed up as atomization.  Atomization does more than make us less cooperative and more combative:  it reduces moral feeling.  I have argued that moral feeling is produced by (organic) social relationships, which in modern society have been replaced by voluntary association (synthetic relationships).  Even marriage, of which family unification was an important byproduct, has devolved into mere partnerships.

We are only beginning to understand the effect of atomization on behavior.  When I first wrote about changes in scale of society I focused on the idea of a numerical increase in social interactions overwhelming our mental capacity, producing an overcrowded "conceptual space".  While population density undoubtedly plays a role, the change in quality of social relationships today is very striking.

I think there is evidence that atomization leads to a sadomasochistic element in social conflict.  If atomization results in retarded moral development, we have a handy model for this:  children.  Because children interact socially before they have developed emotionally, we can observe what social behavior should look like among morally retarded, unempathic adults by studying child behavior.

It is fairly normal to see children in groups of three or more periodically engaging in bullying, exclusion, and humiliation.  These childish conflicts exhibit an amoral quality and suggest a fascination with wielding social power over others, devoid of moral feeling.  Today's larger school environments and online social networks provide more opportunity for such behavior, and detached parenting can reinforce poor social development that exacerbates it.

If leftist activists are trapped at a childish stage of moral development, it would explain their extremism and single-minded desire to humiliate opponents even after political victory has been attained.  If my speculation is correct then their nastiness may become even more extreme as growing atomization leads to people who are so drained of moral energy that only humiliation and self-amusement are attainable experiences.

Conservatives should respond to this by demonstrating solidarity.  The scope and manner of this solidarity can be discussed further, but it is important that conservatives provide support and resources for those subject to extremist political attacks.  Many of the attacks to date rely on small but loud activist groups using social media to organize and then sympathetic mainstream media to amplify their voice.  Conservatives should learn to form larger groups to respond effectively (the media will not amplify them).  Fortunately, conservatives are actually better than liberals at this when they are properly organized.

This also suggests the means to become invulnerable to these attacks:  strengthening of personal relationships, living in lower scale communities, maintaining strong family ties, and working independently or for smaller businesses in which co-workers have stronger social bonds with each other.  The tactics of extremists rely on environments in which relationships are weak and in which people exhibit low altruism.

And, of course, never try to apologize simply for stating your views in your own words.

Upon witnesing President Trump's CNN smackdown tweet today, I was left making much the same facial expression Laurence Fishburn makes at the end of The Matrix when he realizes Neo truly is The One. Long has MPC and the greater alt-right waxed rhapsodic over Trump's many paradigm-shifting qualities, but today was the first day I truly saw him for what he is: Trump is not just a Chad, he is The Chad, in much the same way top-level Taoists claim to become the Tao. This is the key to understanding his behavior and why he appears to so effortlessly triumph over legions of incredibly well-financed yet morally-bereft, insidious bugpeople. If you were to combine every star high school quarterback and Ray-Ban clad summer lifeguard into one, you still would not be scratching the surface of the Pure Chadism that flows through Donald Trump's veins at any given moment. For him, bullyciding isn't just a fun pasttime; it's a way of life.

Donald Trump is a 139 IQ certified triple alpha Apex Chad, born with a nearly perfect anti-autism genome which was then steeled through a lifetime spent in the cutthroat world of high-end ManFUCKINGhatten real estate, which is basically the Olympics of bare, no holds barred Jewry. He is at the top of the Chad food chain, imbued with not only the quotidian Chad qualities of athleticism and insouciance, but also rarer, top-level Chad qualities like completely effortless trolling and unshakable detachment. When you see Trump - the President of the United States of America, lest we forget - retweeting a meme of (real, actual) himself delivering a WWE Raw smackdown to the bugman hive that is CNN, you're watching a completely autonomic response; trolling comes as easy to President Trump as breathing comes to the rest of us, and he puts the same amount of thought into it as you or I just put into our last breath. Unlike his bugman opponents, The Chad does not expend valuable energy hand-wringing over what the latest (((models))) may show; The Chad simply does. Whether he's a plucky, new-to-the-scene NYC realtor having his associate "John Miller" call up some sleazeball tabloid yid to call him a f****t, or a 2016 Republican presidential candidate bragging about his dick size to 80 million prime-time viewers, or the President of the United States of America retweeting a silly meme showing him giving CNN a stunner, The Chad is acting on 100% instinct at all time; this makes him an absolutely fatal opponent for the bugman, whose modus operandi is by nature spergy, data/consensus-driven, and highly fragile. Many here have spoken at length of Trump's anti-fragility in the vein of Taleb; I propose that Trump exists outside of the fragility continuum altogether, a being wholly inoculated against any traditional understanding of vulnerability. Imagine the popular "it all runs off like water down a duck's back" copypasta we are so fond of poasting; now imagine that there is no "... but call him a Jew" clause. That is Donald Trump, The Chad. He has no natural weakness, at least not insofar as the postmodern, atomized, bugman Acela class is concerned.

Exactly how Chad is Donald Trump? We're talking about a man who had the stones to write a very Chadily-composed tell all paperback some 30 years ago that - and this is really amazing stuff, folks - literally takes the reader on a point by point dissection of his understanding of life, the gambits he runs, how he views success and how he wins so often. His entire playbook, laid bare for any literate man, woman, or child to peruse at their leisure, millions of which did. But because Donald Trump understands the nerd/bugman on a fundamental level - far better than the bugman knows even himself - he knows that even with his entire strategic gameplan free for the taking, there is no danger of the enemy catching on. Trump's Chad instincts are so finely tuned that he knows even if he shows the crowd how the magic trick is done, if he does it with his trademark flair, they'll keep falling for it every time. Whether consciously or not (likely not, as we're talking about hardwired, base-level instincts at this point), Trump realizes the bugman will never catch on, as the bugman considers Trump a buffoon, a charlatan, an idiot and a fraud, just as the nerd sees the garden-variety Chad. Simply speaking, bugpeople simply have no idea what they're dealing with when encountering Trump; watching them squirm reminds me of the Strugatsky brothers' Roadside Picnic, wherein mankind spends an inordinate amount of time trying to comprehend alien actions that were, to the aliens, simply a picnic stop. Not only does the bugman foolishly consider himself smarter than Trump, he simply does not understand him at all. To them, his very existence is incomprehensible, a problem to be run through endless datasheets and algorithms and editorial columns; to Trump, that the bugman exists doesn't even register.

When you're watching Trump troll, you're not merely watching a maestro at work; no, you're seeing the very essence of trolling given human form. Trump himself is aware of his incredible, Chadly prowess, as he mocks his opponents' appeals to staid (and laughable) ARE PRESIDENTIAL DIGNITY by announcing that he is not presidential, but modern presidential, a one-off tweet that illustrates Trump has a far deeper understanding of his paradigm-shattering position than he normally lets on. He knows exactly what he is doing, folks. His Twitter finger is a veritable Seal Team Six of bullycide, able to (((ethnically))) cleanse entire newsrooms with the tap of a pinky. Trump is essentially delivering public, extrasensory wedgies and swirlies over the air to millions of bugmen at any given moment; to be quite honest, this is a level of Chadism that I thought was theoretically impossible. No one man should be able to bullycide like ARE president, and yet there he is, delivering a precision-guided tweetbomb holocaust right to the frontostriatal pathway of millions of shitlibs at 2:05am in the morning. This is simply preternatural.

To borrow one of my favorite CJ quotes (over a year old now, how time flies in Trumpville :allears:):

View PostCinco Jotas, on 14 May 2016 - 12:22 PM, said:

f**k the movies. There's no happy ending here for the media. This is evolution in action. Our oppressive s**tlib media has produced the ultimate media killer. Trump isn't a centipede.  He's one of those giant Japanese hornets that kills an entire hive full of bees. He's immune to their stings, and until they evolve a new strategy, which will take a generation or more, it'll just be carnage.

This is a fantastic metaphor, but I think in light of recent events it could use some minor tweaks. Not only is Trump completely immune to the bugman's stings and their postmodern false idols of snark and sarcasm and feigned outrage, he absolutely thrives on their suffering. I see Donald Trump as more of a blue whale (the most yuge animal), happily gliding along with a smug look on his face, mouth lazily opened, all the while swallowing hundreds of plankton at any given moment. Journalists, shitlibs, and assorted anti-Trump f****ts are in this simile the plankton, just complete non-entities to the yuge Trump juggernaut, completely inconsequential in every way, unable to do much of anything in the face of the oncoming titan. Their suffering and eventual destruction fuel Trump for even more trolling and bullyciding; where in the past, conservative sadsacks would wither and die in the face of sustained s**tlib onslaught, President Trump uses their angst to propel himself forward, not really even aware that any one given s**tlib-plankton exists. Trump is an extinction level event for the bugpeople, who are quickly discovering their snarky takedowns and affected, outraged attitudes are akin to when the Poles trotted out the cavalry against the blitzkrieg. When you see the Trump CNN tweet you are effectively witnessing shitlibs using 20th century tactics coming up against a 21st century president; just a complete and total slaughter, the Charge of the Blight Brigade.

I never thought in my life we'd see such a spectacle, and yet here we are, existing in a universe where it's not completely implausible that POTUS Trump will have John Cena deliver a Five Knucle Shuffle to some nebbishy trickle down media whore during one of his upcoming press conferences. I only wish David Foster Wallace could have lived to see this day; who would have thought that the harbinger of New Sincerity would be a reality TV billionaire who starred in a Pizza Hut commercial? ARE president is such a Chad that he is murdering postmodernism right before our very eyes, using nothing more than a free Twitter account. Infinite jest indeed.

#299830 The Kenneth Bone Zone

Posted Hyperion on 15 October 2016 - 12:55 AM

This is Ken Bone.

Ken Bone is a 34 year old coal plant worker living in a steel town near St. Louis, in southern Illinois. He asked a question about energy policy at the second presidential debate last Sunday - specifically regarding the candidates' plans for coal power plants and retrofitting older, dirtier plants with new scrubbing technologies. It was a two part question inquiring about both the candidates energy policies and environmental policies.

Ken Bone wore a bright red sweater, and sported a very interesting moustache.

Within only a few hours, he was an internet meme. He became a media celebrity. He was apolitical, stating ad nauseum that he was truly undecided and would not be revealing his candiate choice. This is important, because it gives us a look into what the media does. It gives us an almost clinical look into how they create stories and drum up controversy.

The Honeymoon started off great.

Washington Post:

America needed a hero. Kenneth Bone answered the call.

Esquire:

Rather than make this man some meme to be twisted by the dark scum of the web, let's recognize him for being the one person not sucking our collective will to live.

He has no agenda. No one is marching him on stage as a political prop (yet). He's just a normal dude. He's not a Pepe meme or a Twitter egg or a Bernie Bro, he's just Ken Bone—somehow the one guy not spewing hate and divisive language this year. He's someone, something to finally feel good about.

CNN:

Today, the pundits will argue over who won the presidential debate. But we think we can safely deliver the verdict:

Ken Bone...

...Ken Bone -- he's no conformist. He's the person a divided America needs right now. The man who brought some levity to the ludicrous, some vim to counter the vitriol. The only thing that was making America great again.

Sports Illustrated Online:

Election hero Ken Bone likes politics, but also hockey

He was being interviewed by all sorts of journos, reporters, and personalities. He was interviewed by Jimmy Kimmel. He had his own shirt made that you can buy online. Interacting with Ken Bone meant "entering the Bone Zone". Porn companies were giving him offers for webcam shows. Pretty soon he even had an Uber endorsement.

This honeymoon phase gives us a glimpse into how the media creates narratives. Ken Bone would have been a short lived meme anyway regardless of whether or not the media decided to fan the flames. Within only fourty-eight hours of the debate there were hundreds of 'articles', if you could call them that, talking about Kenneth Bone, American Hero. Most of these articles included some thinly veiled bitching about Donald Trump and his mean words and lying ways.

All these media whores, desperate for page views, hopped on the bandwagon and put the national spotlight on a regular Joe Six-Pack from southern Illinois. Of course, this wouldn't be the media we know and hate if they didn't try to destroy him in the process.

It started with an AMA over on Reddit. Unlike most pre-rehearsed, PR-manicured commercial AMAs, this was just a regular dude who used his regular reddit account. This ended up being a mistake. Here were some of the posts he's made with his account before the AMA:

Worst of all was the post where he thinks the shooting of Trayvon Martin was justified:

What followed was the aptly described 'media fuckery'.

Gizmodo:

Ken Bone Forgot to Delete His Reddit Porn Comments, Said Trayvon Martin Killing Was 'Justified'

CBS News:

The internet's calling out Ken Bone over his Reddit history

CNN Money:

Ken Bone's charm may now be a thing of the past.

The Daily Beast:

Ken Bone’s Disturbing Reddit History Shows He’s Not Nearly as Adorable as We Thought

Ken Bone was hailed as a symbol of all that is right and good in America after his debate question on Sunday. Now, however, a fuller picture of the guy in a red sweater is emerging.

Of particular interest was the fact that every news article claimed that the worst thing in his history was the fact that he thought George Zimmerman was justified in shooting Trayvon Martin. This, I may remind you (since we tend to forget these things in Clown World) was also the opinion of the grand jury that acquitted Zimmerman.

The Daily Beast:

Most damaging of all, he suggested the killing of Trayvon Martin was “legally justified”—however we should note that Bone did go on to add that George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the killing of the unarmed teenager on the basis of Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law, was a “big ole s**t bird.”

Quartz:

He also suggested George Zimmerman was justified in shooting Trayvon Martin. ... Are these incredibly informed opinions? No, of course not. In fact, many of the comments I’ve seen so far are unequivocally offensive.

On Friday, five days after the debate ended, the New York Times, in its sophisticated serif headline font, eruditely concluded that "We May Be Leaving the Ken Bone Zone".

The New York Times:

This is an obituary for a fictional persona: Ken Bone, America’s Red-Breasted Hero.

This Ken Bone of our imaginations was born on Sunday, during a presidential debate, when the American public saw him and decided that he was more important than whatever those two nameless individuals running for president had to say...

Now the bell tolls for Mr. Bone.

This is a story told in headlines and quips, but its a story we all know very well. By now we all have it memorized. Man wears red sweater to debate, media decides to bruteforce a narrative down our throats of a good guy gone bad. While the Quartz article complained that his meme-dom reeked of the kind of mean-spirited attitude (in their words) jocks have when they 'adopt' a nerd for a day, the only people that used and abused poor old Ken was the media, desperate for page views and advertising dollars and willing to stoop as low as necessary to get them. They probably don't even realize they're doing it since by now its probably second nature to them.

Even when covering a light hearted story like this, the media manages to not only blow it way out of proportion, but also tries to destroy the people involved in the process. So the media does to Ken Bone, so it does to Donald Trump and countless others.

About that Eisenhower quote, as I've written before he understood that the nature of our union was not a settled matter in antebellum America and that the Civil War was a conflict between Americans, rather than between loyalists and traitors. In fact this was almost universally accepted throughout most of our nation's post-war history.

At Appomattox, Grant met his counterpart generals as equals, allowed the officers to keep their sidearms, and the men to keep their horses and mules - stating "the Rebels were our countrymen again". Soon after, the US government granted almost all Confederate soldiers a general amnesty. And within three years, all (including high ranking officials and generals) had been granted the same. The only Confederate who came close to being tried for treason was Jefferson Davis, but the Supreme Court did not hear the case - largely because nobody was certain of the outcome. That secession = treason would not be established until well after the Civil War. Former Confederates went on to serve as US congressman and as soldiers in the US army, they ran railroads and newspapers, they became celebrated novelists and intellectuals, they signed a pact of loyalty to the United States (unlike actual Communist traitors in the 1950s, who refused to) and kept to it.

Three decades later, the former Union soldier President William McKinley officially declared that Confederate soldiers were US veterans under federal law (and eligible for pensions by extension), stating:

Quote

Every soldier’s grave made during our unfortunate Civil War is a tribute to American valor. And while, when those graves were made, we differed widely about the future of this government, those differences were long ago settled by the arbitrament of arms; and the time has now come, in the evolution of sentiment and feeling under the providence of God, when in the spirit of fraternity we should share with you in the care of the graves of the Confederate soldiers.

Five decades after that Eisenhower hung a portrait of Robert E. Lee in his office, after having commanded the grandchildren of Confederates, many of whom wore Confederate battle flag patches on their uniforms, in battle against the Axis (Patton's grandfather, for instance, was a Confederate Colonel). And when some "dentist" from New York badgered him about it he sternly rebuked him, confident in an opinion that was shared by most Americans of the day. In the 1970s Lynyrd Skynyrd could fly the Rebel flag in front of a crowd of hippies in California. In the 1990s, Ken Burns could make a documentary on the Civil War that didn't demonize Southerners and Gettysburg could be released to generally positive reviews (even if Gene Siskel called it "bloated Southern propaganda") and become a box office hit...

...but now, in the year 2017, the children of Communists who fled from Russia in the 1990s insist on their verified twitter accounts that the Confederates were EVIL TRAITORS whose memory must be permanently erased. It is not enough to take down the flag, or statues of Lee and Jackson - tributes to the average soldier (such as the one in Durham) must be torn down too. Hell, it isn't enough to destroy history - these people have to actively pervert it. I mean they insist that those good old boys jumping off pontoons at Normandy were fighting WHITE SUPREMACY and would have been absolutely appalled at DRUMPF condemning Communists and banning trannies from the military. WW2 is the last socially acceptable outlet for American and Western pride (you can make a film like Dunkirk without too much of a stink) and now these shitlibs are trying to ruin that too. These f**king people who have never had a family member in the US military going back generations, who hate actual US soldiers (not the ones with their dicks chopped off), who scoff at patriotic displays when those dumb f**king hicks do it, have the nerve to take your symbols, to take your history, to take your ancestors and your culture, and turn them into avatars for poz.

It's absolutely disgusting, but at the same time the fact that Trump actually called them out on this s**t is incredibly pleasing. He called it, he f**king called it. These people aren't going to stop at Confederates, because their same logic can be used to tear down every facet of historical pride we have this country. He called it! And they savage him for it, they savage him as a myopic idiot for having a level of farsightedness, levelheadedness, and sense of duty to present and past that is unparalleled in recent history.

DRUMF IS A DUM DUM the s**tlib tweets, as he fulfills Trump's prophesies.

I am going to learn you what type of cuckservative John McCain is at the peril of doxing myself.  You may have read this story elsewhere, and it was used by the DNC against McCain in his previous election.

In late 200,4 my now ex-wife, found a lump in her breast.  She had separated (Honorably Discharged) from the military, a year before I was medically retired, and we were both attending an Arizona University. We were coasting by on Bridge Health Insurance purchased though the University, even though we were both eligible for tier one (preferred status) medical care via our local Veteran's Administration Hospital. It was s**t and getting an employee on the phone to make an appointment was near impossible.

My ex-wife attempted to make an appointment and received one after 3 hours of being put on hold.  They informed her to call back in 30 days for a "priority" appointment, for a lump in her breast.  A call to the VA Patient Advocate resulted in an actual appointment in 30 days.

I then called the office of John McCain, gave my information and problem to an aide, and was subsequently ignored for the next 5 months.

I then called the office of Jon Kyl. After the aide took my information and began listening to my situation, Senator Kyl came onto the line to speak with me personally.  20 minutes later I had a call from the VA with an appointment in 3 days and 25 minutes later I had a return call from Senator Kyl to confirm the appointment and thanked us for our service.

5 months later I received a personalized invitation from the office of John McCain to attend the premier of "Faith of My Father" with Senator McCain as one of his special guests.

The breast lump ended up being benign, but it was an actual lump the size of my thumb, and was eventually absorbed back into breast tissue.  Those three days were hell for us before the appointment, the following 3 days for the results were just as excruciating.

Brain cancer is what this Manchurian War Hawk Songbird deserves, I hope he has some breast cancer for good measure.  Rest is Piss as we MAGA.

Found this gem: http://www.cosmopoli...s-donald-trump/

Quote

"Folks like Trump because he is 'refreshing,' 'tells it like it is' and 'speaks his mind,'" Jonathan Capehart notes in the Washington Post. "And every time he whines about not bowing to 'political correctness' to the delight of his adoring fans, what he (and his overwhelmingly white audiences) really mean is that they want the ability to insult anyone they damn well please without rebuke or censure for being vulgar, racist or rude."

The lie this nagger f****t is telling here is at the crux of much our current politics.

No one cares about not being able to call Capehart a nagger. They care about not being able to discuss crime and education and the tribal politics that will define their children’s and grandchildren’s home nation. They want to be able to talk to their fellow parents about the racial makeup of the local schools without having to sniff out with each new acquaintance how safe it is to do so. They want to be able to talk to their neighbors about the safety of their neighborhood without having to compromise the seriousness of the discussion with euphemisms. They want to be able to discuss race—the safety of where their children live and learn, the quality of life that results from the daily behavior and decency of whatever quality of people live near them—without having worry their neighbors will inform on them in some way. They want to be able to live in a country other than one where even among friends there is incentive to secrecy about what you really think because you never know what will eventually get out or which of your friends wasn’t as sensible or tolerant or honest as you hoped they’d be.

No one cares about not being able to call Capehart a f****t. They care that they can’t make in-depth arguments against their sons’ Boy Scouts following the Catholic Church because there isn’t any way to discuss the matter beyond “uh, well, it’s my faith, I'm really sorry.” Liberals sneer at critics of homosexuality because they say the only premise for objection the opponents have is some primitive text where they choose to ignore the part against shellfish. But that’s the only argument that’s been remotely sayable for years (and it isn’t really anymore); no one can publish or last long publicly talking about mental illness or hedonism or sociopathic tendencies or apologetics for and complicity in abuse. A major CEO can’t even make a personal donation to support his view of marriage without losing his own company, so clearly a normal person isn’t going to be able to voice concerns that monogamy won’t be a part of marriage anymore if an aggressively un-monogomous cohort can be married. They want to be able to say things like that, not pointless insults or jokes. They’d be happy to do it as politely as possible but they’d still be called uncivil and hateful.

No one insists on being insensitive to some emotionally bewildered co-ed who thinks she’s been raped. They want to be able to discuss libertinism and abstinence without being written off as a misogynist. No one feels any desperate need to make fun of Bruce Jenner let alone some confused, mentally broken kid who thinks he’s a girl. They want to be able to argue for women’s restrooms to remain actually women’s restrooms without it being a hate crime. No one absolutely can’t get through their year without telling a Holocaust joke. They want to be able to talk about foreign policy without being crucified for anti-semitism. And just kidding obviously about being able to go a year without bake-off jokes, you don’t have to update your list TOG.

This deliberately obtuse horseshit about wanting to be rude and vulgar is a strawman that our gatekeepers use to deny the existence of all the real subjects to talk about above. It’s not that there aren’t plenty of us who are enthusiastic about being vulgar and uncivil in certain contexts, of course there are and it’s part of rebellion and part of release and part of bonding and part of having a human sense of humor. But it’s an abject lie to say that that’s what the resentment and resistance of PC is about, that that’s what people want when they want their free speech back.

They want to be able to talk about reality without losing their jobs or friends. Why don’t they make sure they get like-minded friends? They can’t know the minds of any new acquaintance for any given amount of time because they can’t talk about these things first. Why don’t they make sure they get jobs that are safe from reprisal? Because they’ve lost their country and they don’t have the control over the social infrastructure to make sure they can get those jobs or that those jobs even exist.

First liberals lie about this dynamic even existing, as Capehart is doing here. But if you do manage to point any of the above out they will admit it does, that what people really shouldn’t be allowed to talk about is race and education and the implications of their children being despised and impotent minorities. They eventually admit that the dynamic is real and they like it that way. But most people aren’t philosophically equipped to get there so they never get even that damning admission. The lie that this is about politeness enforces the crimestop that is at the crux of this problem with our politics.

I don’t mind that I have to post anonymously on the internet or make sure that I’m in the right rarified company if I feel like pointing out that Jonathan Capehart is a f****t and a nagger. It’s fun to point that out but it’s not important to me. I mind that no one can discuss the fate of the country their grandchildren will live in without shackling what they’re trying to express with newspeak and without fear of losing relationships, careers, and livelihoods. That, not “the ability to insult anyone” is what I “really mean” and it’s what the other people this f****t nagger is lying about really mean too.

Of the many different reactions to Donald Trump’s inaccurate and insulting comments about how Mexican migrants to the United States come from the bottom of the barrel, one of the most interesting has been that of wealthy and powerful Mexican elites who are suddenly long on indignation and outrage but short on memory and self-awareness.

That’s because Trump’s dismissive comments about how the United States has become a “dumping ground” for castaways from Mexico sound like something you’d hear bandied about at a Guadalajara country club or a fancy banquet in Mexico City.

After all, Mexico—like the rest of Latin America—is not exactly a model of social equality. There is prejudice and discrimination, pecking orders to which one must adhere. And those who leave the country are often ignored and forgotten

The writer doesn't want to real talk, he just wants to whine about how unfair Mexico's society is, without understanding that the main reason it's unfair is that it's filled with low IQ Aztecs.

The Donald's trolling is high level and we look to reap massive dividends on our high investment in him.  Outlook:  hard to clearly read the signals at this point due to the shrieks of shitlibs.

#167164 Why one relationship is better than many

  • 92

Posted PLEASUREMAN on 02 February 2014 - 12:51 AM

There was a post I was going to make at some point but I never got around to it, to the effect that one of the things that shortens life the most is relationship-hopping aka serial monogamy.  The Brave New Feminism thread reminded me of it again.

One of the most common arguments for relationship-hopping is that you need to find out who you are compatible with.  God forbid you fail to optimize your relationship stats.  You have to have sex with several people and live with several people and perhaps marry several people before you can be sure you are with your soul mate.

The best argument in favor of settling down early is strong but seldom made.  Maybe for some people it won't do much good, because due to a lot of bad influences they approach relationships selfishly--what am I getting out of this?  Any relationship is necessarily a subordination of self, so it's very hard to make relationships work when that is your attitude.

Because of this subordination a relationship always captures a part of you more or less permanently, which you can think of as the sum of shared memories, feelings, and changes over its course.  Those experiences belong to the relationship, and when you leave the relationship you leave them in a past that continues to recede.  One of the things that makes relationship endings so painful is the loss of those experiences from what you might think of as your current existence.  Sometimes it feels like a kind of death and takes years of grieving to get over.  It's the pain of losing a part of yourself that was fused with that relationship.

The most vivid experiences you have are often firsts, as in your first trip abroad or your first apartment or your first job or your first home or your first move away from where you grew up.  Much like a lot of physical experiences, the first captures the greatest degree of intensity and subsequent iterations lose emotional resonance.  These are important experiences in isolation, but when shared with someone they involve an extra quality of experience--well, we're social creatures.  If you go to a comedy club alone, no matter how funny the comedian is, it's not the same as being there with someone who is sharing your enjoyment.

All of these first experiences change you, but when you end a relationship and start a new one you are essentially rebooting to a new, smaller set of shared experiences that can never include already experienced changes.  Not only have you lost some part of the experiences you shared with someone else (in my experience they don't retain the same vitality they had after a breakup), but as changing experiences they are excluded from all subsequent relationships.

This is true even with bad experiences, which oddly enough can also be important in binding people together.  Surviving a tough financial stretch, or getting burglarized, or losing your job, or becoming hospitalized--these also provide an important social glue, and when the relationship in which they took place expires you lose out on the binding effect they gave.

If you keep ending and starting relationships often enough, you will eventually reach the point where all your new relationships are relatively shallow partnerships, where the best of both of you--at any rate the changes that made you who you are--lies in the past.

I think we intuitively know all this, and it's partly why people will choose to coast in a relationship that isn't going anywhere vs. breaking it off (it's also just a lot of work to break off a relationship of significant duration).  Why relationships coast is a whole other subject, as is why people end up picking unsuitable partners.  But the way we experience our own past and the way we socially bond suggest that we should avoid as much as possible starting over from scratch.

As per protocol I just met with my academic adviser for the spring. For some reason each semester I have advising sessions with 3 people at 3 different levels where they read a print out of the same database that I've been accessing online to plan out my classes for graduation. Each time it's twenty minutes explaining stuff I already know, and have known for months. This time I actually cut him short and said I'm more concerned with what I'm going to do after graduation; perhaps graduate education, maybe law school. I then qualified "law school" with my reservations regarding the dim prospects I've read for alumni, but ran into a boomerwall since he responded glibly that "the lawyers I know are all doing well" and that with my GPA and a good LSAT I'd have no problem "getting accepted by a law school". I told him that it's not admissions I'd be worried about so much as my likely debt-to-income ratio, to which he responded:

If I were a lawyer I'd be one of those public defender guys, just helping people out. I wouldn't be a cut throat lawyer working for some corporation, I'd rather work for free doing something good. But that's my passion. You should follow your passion.

I thanked him for his time and left

#355025 Trump: high risk, anti-fragile

  • 90

Posted PLEASUREMAN on 08 June 2017 - 12:19 PM

Gwerks was in chat saying that Trump was as "bumbling and corrupt" as all politicians (or moreso).  This is probably a prevalent acela attitude, along with being certain that the Russians influenced the election because "intelligence agencies" all said so.  Even though these same intelligence agencies have had difficulty producing reports that do not contain factual howlers, acelas are at heart managerialists and therefore love consensus assessments and rely on them daily.  "The New York Times says it, I believe it, that settles it."  The managerialist model promotes such thinking by selecting for those who believe in hierarchical systems of consensus and organization.  Every nu-male and pussyhat in DC bars watching Comey's testimony probably had similar "bumbling and corrupt" thoughts while also nodding sagely about "no drama Obama", the managerialist's ideal figure.

What such spectators do not realize is that Trump doesn't fit templates of high accomplishment politicians because he has a radically different sense of how to play this game.  (It might or might not work out for him--but recognizing its difference seems beyond these dreary people.)  To say Trump's perspective is shaped by his business dealings would also miss the point, because the difference between Trump and the political establishment goes far beyond that.  In fact business types seldom do well in politics precisely because they are used to controlling what anyone says about them and having little press oversight--they struggle to appeal to broad electorates, having emerged from relatively monastic and inbred corporate organizations.  They have few skills and are usually quite shallow strategists.  This is also why founders are so radically different from corporate executives--and Trump is more from the founder mold.

What makes Trump's profile different and closer to anti-fragile is that, like most founders, he accepts high levels of risk and prefers a more chaotic environment.  Chaos is dangerous to most politicians, who lack many skills beyond networking and who prefer to have long tenures from which they gain big payoffs.  For a politician, the payoff is always threatened by deviations from the norm, hence politicians are loathe to deviate (other than with Congressional pages).  Trump clearly does not have this motivation--he's a billionaire and could spend the rest of his life living like an emperor no matter what happens.  He's personally motivated to build something--he has the founder need to create.

A high risk strategy has obvious downsides, however if Trump understands the establishment war on him--which I believe he does--then the safest place for him is the middle of a tempest.  Here large threats exist to him but also to his risk-averse opponents, and momentary collisions provide Trump with much-needed opportunities that the establishment would prefer to deny him.  To understand it this way is to understand why Trump routinely produces the kind of chaos that establishment politicians spend their careers running away from.  This is a high risk strategy, but also a high reward strategy if Trump succeeds in exploiting opportunities.  (Note that a key factor here is that Trump has few if any allies--the Republican establishment is as opposed to him as the Democrats are.)

Needless to say, those who are used to thinking of everything within the dull establishment framework miss all of this and conclude that Trump is an impulsive idiot (he just somehow lucked into a $10 billion fortune, unlike these geniuses who write blogs).  To them there is nothing dumber than to do what Trump is doing, because they don't understand his payoff isn't their payoff.  (Although their payoff increasingly looks like spending a career grinding away at blogs in order to enjoy their golden years with 30 tabs of hentai porn and a lot of angry tweets.)

What is a studycunt?  Glad you asked.  A studycunt is a woman who makes a big fuss about becoming an expert on some subject mainly enjoyed (genuinely) by men, and insists that she always be treated like a man would be (then complains when this actually happens and she gets the slightest bit of s**t about anything).  The most obnoxious, entitled, cunty version of modern women there is.  Thinks she deserves a prize for studycunting her way to a level of knowledge that men acquire naturally through their own interest, and takes every opportunity to let everyone know her current level.

What is the difference between a studycunt and a woman who has a natural interest in the same subject (usually because she's a lesbian whose dad f**ked her up)?  Good question.  The tell is usually that, unlike a studycunt, a woman with a natural interest in something is naturally interesting to talk to about it, and doesn't try to cram in jargon and references to prove she mastered all the vocab terms for today's quiz.  She accepts that this is a subject of mainly male interest and does not get uptight about demonstrations of this.  She will even defer to male opinion without acting like it's a form of rape to do so.  (Also, you might want to f**k the woman.  The charmless studycunt you cannot get far enough away from.)

#376263 The GOP: Garbage since 1932

Posted Hazmat Harry on 20 August 2017 - 09:17 PM

I've been reading a lot of 20th century political literature recently, especially Nixon. We need a major reappraisal of the GOP's history. The usual story goes something like this: after two decades in the wilderness under FDR, the Republicans finally managed to start getting their crap together in the 1950s, had a false start in the 1970s thanks to Nixon literally Hitlering Watergate, and renewed itself in 1980.

I have noticed a common theme with Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Donald Trump. In each case, you had a GOP that was apparently a shipwreck, yet won the Presidency thanks to an outsider (either from truly outside the party or its periphery) running on a populist message that appealed to a wide swathe of Americans, dispensing with rigid doctrines that had consistently failed to win people over. And in all four cases, once in office, his own party set about immediately trying to undermine him rather than reorient itself to follow his lead to new heights of victory. Of the four, Nixon was the closest to being a "party man," but he was disliked by the core of the party since the day he "embarrassed" them by exposing Alger Hiss' lies and treason to our nation, thus earning the permanent ire of the Communist-loving press (Republicans will forgive treason, but not being made to look like bad people in the New York Times). Of the four, Reagan was the closest to turning the GOP his direction, as the Reagan faction in the Party has had some influence in the intervening decades.

It seems to me that 20 years of consecutive losses during the Depression permanently shattered the Republican Party. It seems to have never actually recovered. To this day, the Party is organized as a minority party. A minority party is not designed to govern; it's designed to secure benefits for particular patrons and constituents from the ruling party. Democrats are punished when they break party discipline; Republicans are punished when they don't secure donations. This is why, despite having more power on paper than at any time since before the Depression, the Republicans are intent on sabotaging their own President and completely incapable of passing any meaningful legislation. Democrats sacrificed their elections to get Obamacare passed; Lisa Murkowski won't sacrifice a $5000 donor check and Rand Paul won't sacrifice a stern tut-tut in Reason to repeal it. They aren't really set up to achieve anything, because their whole party, its structure, and its incentives are designed to always have it anticipating its next defeat, positioning itself to secure maximum benefits once it has lost.

Such a party cannot serve the country and cannot rule. It's time for the GOP to go.

Posted Cinco Jotas on 20 January 2017 - 09:42 PM

President Urkel X is familiar sort to anyone who's been in academia: the moderately high-IQ, lazy-ass, affirmative action nig. If I had to guess, I'd say he's at least as smart as George W., 120 IQ or so, (three standard deviations above 85). The problem is that an articulate and presentable nog with a decent IQ is going to be able to coast through school big time.  As undergrads, they're generally not in over their heads intellectually, so they're not plagued by resentment and self-doubt like dumber blacks who are over-schooled. Outside of the sciences, where their shitty work habits sink them, they'll pull Bs' with not much effort and frequent plagiarism. If it were a white boy doing this, no one would care. Smart kids who coast in college are a dime a dozen and they often do well in life. But the bar is set so low for blacks that when a unicorn like Obama comes along (which was rare in the 80s & 90s and less so now because of race mixing) the professors go wild. Better grades, scholarships and opportunities of all sorts will open up. They'll even inflate his grades and ignore his slack ways with citations. Grad school can be more of the same if they're in the right program (sociology or psychology) or the Dunning-Kruger crash when they hit that heavy reading and writing load. (Note that these observations only apply to black men. There's a different dynamic for smart black women, they're angrier and harder working.)

The funny thing is that these characters are usually very personable and easy to be around. They're most often polite, well-spoken and cheerful, and can pull tons of semi-decent vagina (if they're not fags like Barack). Let me just say that at a party filled with aggressively brittle, grad-school jews, a goofy-bright, lazy-ass black kid is like a ray of sunshine. These characters can happily coast for an entire lifetime in a government job, a corporate diversity sinecure or a social sciences faculty (although publish-or-perish is really problematic for them).  

Lord Purpa Drank is of this type. His undergrad career suggests as much, bouncing from Occidental to Columbia was stepping up in status. He got elected to the law review at Harvard without authoring a single article because he was popular. Got the giant publishing contract for his post-Harvard memoirs, but couldn't write the book. As an adjunct at the U. of Chicago Law School he was famously lazy. Barack Obama is the high-Q, lazy-ass nig writ large. Even his governing style is lazy.

What distinguishes Barack from the others of this sort is that he was a third-culture kid. Raised neither here nor there, he's always felt disconnected from America. This alienation is compounded by the fact that, like a lot of mulattos raised by white women, he's also had a giant problem with his negritude. He's not white, but not fully black. So in Chicago, he had to affirmatively decide to become black, hence Michelle. If you marry a hulking black brute like Michelle Robinson, you've thrown your lot in with The People of the Bix Nood.  

tl;dr: Conclusion. Obama doesn't understand America and dislikes Americans, but although he was smart enough to be really dangerous, he was also just another lazy-ass, high-IQ nig happy to coast through his eight years in the White House while collecting his government gibs.

#282711 Trump's War on Complexity

  • 88

Posted Chicano Studies Major on 29 July 2016 - 05:19 PM

A popular elite talking point on Trump or any other movement riding the wave of right-wing populism is that they allegedly provide "easy answers to complex questions". This of course is meant pejoratively: we can't just solve our immigration problems by halting immigration - we need a bureaucratic Rube Goldberg machine to select and manage immigration precisely to fit "our" needs. The fact that this hasn't been working in the majority's interest for decades doesn't matter; it just implies that we need better, perhaps even more complex solutions.

But complex solutions beget creative workarounds and the more we try to optimize these processes by legislative fiat, the more abuse we're inviting. The H1-B program was introduced as a way for companies to hire foreign specialists with rare skills that couldn't be found on the domestic labor market. 20 years later, an entire industry has sprung up just to game this system and pump as many desperate Bangalore graduates as possible through the pipeline. In return for slightly improved hiring conditions in niche industries, we've created a huge open flank on our working class that is being shamelessly abused by the moneymen.

Would the US economy be less competitive if we simply banned the hiring of non-citizens, a very primitive solution to this problem? Certainly. Would this primitive solution improve the lives of countless workers threatened by the mere possibility of H1-B scab replacements? Even more certainly. But our elites are not interested in acknowledging this downside of complexity as they directly or indirectly benefit from it.

Joseph Tainter gives the example of the Byzantine Empire to illustrate how a society forcibly reduced complexity to ensure survival. Threatened by encroaching Arab invaders that the overburdened empire couldn't deal with anymore, it radically shrunk its professional army in favor of peasant militias, devolved administrative power unto the provinces and limited government to core functions. This most certainly reduced the standard of living enjoyed by the inhabitants of the imperial capital in particular, but it allowed for a consolidation process that enabled the empire to repel further invasions. Had they insisted on maintaining a level of complexity that was apparently unsustainable at the time, then Constantinople would've likely fallen to the cult of Mahound centuries before it did.

Likewise, the West is currently facing existential threats that further complexity only seems to exacerbate. A desire to optimize the global division of labor is draining us of our industrial base; a hunger for cheap labor and certain misguided egalitarian beliefs are facilitating the more or less peaceful invasion of foreign peoples; and unmoored individualism is destroying families, gender roles and healthy sexual repression. These problems seem beyond the capacity or even willingness of Western elites to manage. Thus, the only solutions can be radically simple ones: protect industry, build the wall and create a fecund environment for traditional family structures.

Yes, these measures will likely have a negative effect on our hedonistic pleasures. But on our current trajectory of unsustainable complexity, Western civilization will simply cease to exist as anything but a shell or a cargo cult. Byzantium could've chosen to prolong its grip on the provinces for a few more years and reap the material benefits, but its fate would've been similarly grim.

Simplicity is the dictate of the hour. We should embrace this invective our enemies so carelessly throw around and make the case that a simpler society is indeed the more attractive choice and our only means of survival as Anglo-Saxon and European peoples. Nobody should have to acquire intercultural competencies just to navigate his everyday life. Nobody should have to be expected to move around like a gypsy just to earn a living. Nobody should have to worry that his children will come back as genderqueer trannies after spending time at some faraway college removed from all social constraints.

People have fond memories of the world that used to be precisely because they didn't have to worry about any of that. Life really was simpler and it was great. Let's make it simple and great again.

#385310 Trump, Sportsball, and Managerialism

  • 87

Posted Bumbling American on 26 September 2017 - 05:21 AM

I have been alive an embarrassingly long time and have never seen anything like this played out in public--a genuine, blazing culture war as opposed to liberal advance and conservative retreat-and-moan. The archetypal example is Dan Quayle and Murphy Brown: He observes that it's terrible to celebrate single mothers on a popular TV shows, gets piled on by the entire cultural establishment and then instead of fighting back declares that he wears liberal scorn as a badge of honor (and contents himself with a talk show to vent impotent rage and ensure himself a lifetime pass to the buffet on NRO fundraising cruises). I have never seen this kind of outright belligerence on the part of a president. I'm not even sure Nixon fits the bill; he attacked the media and counterculture but not relentlessly, and not from actual and assumed strength versus defensiveness and paranoia. What's more, when Nixon was doing his thing (or when Tipper Gore was holding her hearings about dirty pop songs), they were articulating the common values of a supermajority of a much less fragmented country. Trump is speaking for the last chunk of that supermajority in the face of a menagerie of ethnic and ideological groups that hate their guts. And to some extent winning.

It's exhilarating not only to see a populist leader in the first place but also to have one willing to grab an issue by the throat. Cultural forces like pro sports always seemed inevitable and dangerous to approach because of their economic pull and massive fan base; but they also made themselves incredibly easy targets for anger without realizing it--and without our alleged political allies realizing it either, or realizing it and having the guts to do anything about it. You can see NRO giving the typical GOP chin-stroking line about are values that essentially let the other side do whatever it wants all the time; I don't know what effect Trump's "f**k you" and then "f**k you twice as hard" will have, but it shows a commitment that "our" side never had before. As I said, this is what a real culture war looks like.

To be honest, though, it's terrifying as much as it is exhilarating. The fracture lines run a lot deeper than a lot of people--myself included--are ready to face and in many case they cannot be bridged but acknowledged and allowed to widen. Trump is giving the other side the choice to move itself closer to "ours" or withdraw and wither. What does it all mean? Nobody knows, certainly not Trump. Frankly I would rather have one peaceful America than peaceful ideological and regional princedoms. But we'll get what we get.

I would also say that if something big is going to happen, it had better happen rapidly--even if it's just the awakening of the normie base to the threat it faces, the power it holds and the actions it needs to take. Otherwise the next time a Dem gets into office, we are in for a tremendous backlash.

Part 1: The Delusional Alt-Right

Dumb people are incapable of understanding sophisticated arguments or outside perspectives--they lack the necessary conceptual language.  Their brains translate smart thoughts into stupid ones, a conversion process aided by being angry, counter-intuitively wrong, or socially cut off from people who could remind the dumb person of obvious counter-arguments.

The latest dumb person view on the alt-right is that anyone who does not join them in decrying Trump is a committed dupe who is unable to emotionally detach from support and adopt the superior views held by high-pitched young males who spend every waking hour making podcasts and using Twitter (the galaxy brain's choice of intellectual salon).

Since almost the election itself, the fringe alt-right has been obsessed with finding fault with Trump and his policies.  This escalated dramatically after the Syrian strike on April 7, and then reached apoplectic levels when the Trump administration was reported to be in talks with Democrats and Republicans about DACA legislation.  Along the way every White House power struggle, every anonymous media rumor, and every hiring of a Jew for a cabinet post further aggravated alt-right nerves.

Media gaslighting has played a relatively small role in this; while it exists, the main tension has been fueled by the alt-right fringe's frustration that Trump was not a white supremacist and does not seem to adhere to any ideology beyond a vague American nationalism.  Therefore, even when Trump issued a Muslim immigration halt, even when Trump went out on an incredible limb and said that antifa and white nationalists were both to blame for Charlottesville (one of the only correct statements made by a politician about the fiasco), even when Trump defended Confederate statues as part of our nation's heritage, for Trump's alt-right detractors it was never enough.

After the 2016 election, nothing could satisfy the high-strung alt-right nervous system, not even its cartoonish meme fantasies.  The alt-right's view of the world had become so reductive, so dumb, that there was no way the complex real world would ever come into alignment with it.  People panting for large scale violence and oppression did not appear to understand that a system of balanced government powers was unlikely to ever produce this (not to mention their glaring lack of fitness for such a political environment).

#374021 Lessons from Charlottesville

Posted Mein Covfefe on 13 August 2017 - 11:05 AM

View PostQuads: Louise Mensch, on 13 August 2017 - 03:14 AM, said:

Charlottesville: there's only so many ways to say "stupid," "deplorable," "senseless" and "dumb". I've read a lot of angry emotional ink today. I'm already sick of hearing about how destructive it all was, but three people are dead now and we're about to have a National Conversation, so we better talk about it. It doesn't matter that the news spins more destructive leftist outbursts (Chicago, Dallas, Hodgkinson); it doesn't matter that antifa also rioted today; it doesn't matter that the cops started it. We need to reflect. I offer this thread for that purpose.

First recognize the world we live in. It looks something like this:

W.B. Yeats:

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Society is spinning out of coherence ("Turning and turning in the widening gyre"). Atomized people are tumbling into greater and greater numbers of self-selecting echo chambers ("The falcon cannot hear the falconer"). Factions are the new center of political life ("Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold). And so anarchy is being loosed upon the world. This describes the excited minority that pushed Trump into power. This explains our dizzying new varieties of political and social identities. This explains what happened today in Charlottesville. I've heard a dozen different theories today: "neo-nazis," "Soros false flag," "antifa's fault," "cucked police," "stupid Spencer," "fake news," "white nationalists," "Trump's responsibility," "James Fields Did Nothing Wrong". None of them quite explains the sheer anarchy of it all. We are no longer one whole society, and this is breaking out everywhere.

This has great implications for how we conduct our politics. We need to organize in this fractured world if we want to build a political movement outside Trump. Surely organizing rightists in public spaces is not a worthless endeavor -- in another universe "Unite the Right" could have been a decent peaceful protest. In another universe. Anyone could have seen that the news, antifa, and the city cops would all be against it. The failure of the Charlottesville rally's organizers to plan effectively goes a long way to answering "what went wrong". If we want to succeed we need to avoid these mistakes.

At this point then I'd like to consider what the right should have done. Victories don't just happen; they take planning. For every successful Civil Rights march there were thousands of hours of workshops and organizing. Instead of just showing up and winging it, here are some better ideas:

:geeksquad:

* Control your image. This is probably the most important issue. If you're giving speeches, you need respectable faces. Pick speakers who will not scare the Fox News audience if you're wanted for an interview. If you're marching, hand out American flags in advance. Spread a dress code if you have to. ("Rule one: No swastikas. Rule two: NO SWASTIKAS.") It doesn't matter if everyone obeys if you get good-looking normal people in front of the cameras.

* NO SWASTIKAS!

* Contact the press in advance. Contact the press in advance! You will need a friendly audience. Don't expect to show up and find Shepard Smith presenting himself. Identify friendly reporters and gift-wrap them a story with everything you want to say -- they love copying you work and calling it theirs. Tell them where the cameraman should set up. If you give them something to work with they will write a positive story even if you don't loan out your rentboy. This is important so that, if something goes wrong, you already have friendly press contacts to help shape your story.

* Contact the city in advance. Talk with them and make sure they are on board so you don't eat teargas surprise later. This is one of Trump's prerequisites in "Art of the Deal" for getting buildings built ahead of schedule. He get everything settled with the city before concrete is poured and it's too late to make changes. The minute Spencer got his permit approved he should have sat down with the city to make sure they understood. "Antifa will be there and we need your help to keep this peaceful." If the city suddenly decides they don't like your freedom of speech, you've lined up a decent legal case without having to do any more work.

* Contact some local politicians. Think about this for a moment: rightists planned a political march in Virginia and didn't get one politician. There are some politicians who will play footsie with us in Virginia, get the guy who used 'cuckservative' or the state senator running against the tranny. Not only is it good for your image (people will take you seriously), politicians love hearing that all they have to do is show up and lecture the voters. It's a win-win.

* Have a backup. If the city won't give you Freedom Square, ask for Liberty Circle. If the parade route is blocked, take another path (you already scouted one, right?). If you get somewhere and have no microphones you better have a megaphone or a rooftop.  What are you going to do if it rains?

* Guns: yes or no? If you want to look stoic next to antifa, tell your people not to carry. Tell the police too. If you want proper self-defense, advertise well in advance that your march is pro-2nd Amendment.

* Coach your people. Spread some chants and slogans early enough so that you don't get embarrassed with whatever people start screaming on the day of. Give them the itinerary. Have a core of support who will help you lead the mob. The more clearly you communicate the less likely things will go off the rails.

This may all sound pretty obvious, but remember that even Basketball American community activists follow these guidelines our glorious master race can't figure out. So please chime in with your "well, duh" lessons so that when some knucklehead still wants to do it all over again, you can link them here.

The most successful Nazi rally ever held was the one Anglin didn't hold in Minnesota.  For the cost of a few internet shitposts he forced Soros to pay to bus people in the middle of nowhere.  You'd think he or weev would have realized that this tactic is all upside, no downside and repeated it in Alaska, the Everglades, or somewhere just as far away from civilization and miserable, but nope.  He's sticking with the meth-raddled Nazis welfare class.

These people aren't even working class and they're still allowed to show up at your rally?  I thought fascists had standards?

Rallies are fragile because the benefits have a very low upper limit and unlimited downside.  You should never have a rally for that reason alone, nevermind the optics, or that you're carpetbagging and pissing off the locals.

Your list is retarded.  The idea of a rally is retarded.

If antifa were afraid of Nazis, would they have shown up?  Nope.  Where are all the antifa at MPC?  Do they read this site like they read TRS?  f**k no, because they're afraid that reading MPC will actually make sense and their people will switch sides.

If Anglin had more sense he'd have fake rallies every month and then he'd have a real rally once antifa stopped showing up.  Be like Trump, mix so much misdirection in with your truth that the enemy can't predict what you'll do next.  Telegraphing your moves months in advance is a sign of at best a second rate intellect.  Even then the rally should only be held to keep the media taking the bait, not because you want a "show of force" or some other gay s**t.  Why would you even show off your strength, you're fundraising for antifa?

The goal of anything you do should not be obvious.  The goal of a rally shouldn't be the rally, but the second and third order effects of having one.  We should have antifa running ragged all over the goddamn country, spending money, getting parking tickets and speeding tickets, getting pissed off and frustrated.  We don't want to meet them at the time of their choosing, we don't want to meet them at all.  We're fighting a political insurgency, why you are showing up for 2D battles in a 5D political landscape?  Did the minute men show up in formation to fight the British?  Did those Boers fight the British head on?  No, they didn't; because they're not morons!

Kermit I am begging you to start talking explicitly about tactics and strategy because until you do no one else will.  I hurts my soul to watch failures compound themselves like this.

#338551 The Revolutionary Vanguard of the Trumpening: Street Fighters and Intellectuals

  • 87

Posted Cinco Jotas on 29 March 2017 - 09:26 PM

Here's a long post from a Bay Area antifa/s**tlib/anarchist forum that's worth your while. It's a good piece of investigative reporting about the Heroes of Berkeley from an odious source.

First revelation: Based Stick Man is a repeat-offender felon...

Quote

Soon after Chapman’s arrest, anti-fascist researchers uncovered a wealth of information on him. This includes his extensive criminal history which features convictions for felonies in Texas and California for charges including robbery, grand theft, and the purchase and possession of a shotgun and SKS military caliber rifle from an illegal arms dealer. Despite the Right championing so-called law and order and espousing tough-on-crime rhetoric, support for Chapman has been almost universal amongst pro-Trump and fascists activists alike.

Chapman would have been cast as a “thug” and career criminal had he been an anti-fascist protester, but all that is ignored in favor of the manipulative patriot narrative currently being put forward by those camps. It’s important to understand that the relationship of fascists and the right-wing to the rule law is highly utilitarian and superficial, and one that can and will be ignored to create the spectacles of violence and the authority needed for furthering their revolutionary fascist politics.

Whoever wrote this isn't entirely wrong. The right, like the left, does have a somewhat utilitarian approach to the rule of law. The difference is that the left isn't hypocritical about its utilitarianism. They have no problem interpreting law however they want, nor do they have much problem just ignoring it. (Remember Obama unilaterally deciding not to enforce the inconvenient parts of the ACA?)

As for Based Stick Man's criminal history, there's a long and honorable tradition of redemption in battle. Cowards who lead forlorn hopes erase their stains. Petty criminals who fight on the side of right, when few others will, earn honor and can keep it as long as they don't relapse into criminality. We've known for a long time that when the Road Wars to Make America Great finally get here, we'll be fighting alongside some pretty unsavory characters. But when has it every been otherwise?  Petty thugs and committed ideologues are the shock troops of revolution.

I've got no problem supporting Kyle Chapman, despite his criminal history, and despite his Proud Boy/Gavin McInnes beliefs. He showed up and tussled with AntiFa when most of us stayed at home. So, props to him for doing that.


Ultimately, what we're seeing here is that the revolutionary vanguard of the Trumpening has begun to coalesce: street fighters and intellectuals.

Speaking of street fighting intellectuals, remember this guy from the Scuffle in San Jose?

Posted Image

He showed up in Berkeley...

Posted Image

His name is Eric Zarahn...

Quote

Despite  Zarahn’s inclination towards conspiracies, he holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience from University of Pennsylvania, and at one time taught at Colombia University. He also engaged in pro-Israel and Islamophobic activism using his position at the university. Zarah has also worked for tech companies such as Microsoft, and currently lives in west San Jose.

Zarahn is pro-Jew, although I don't think he's Jewish. The AntiFa continues...

Quote

It’s worth noting the fact that like Zarahn, a large number of fascist and white supremacist activists in the contemporary moment are from educated and affluent middle class and professional backgrounds in “STEM” and other highly paid fields. Counter to the continually perpetuated images of the uneducated working-class neo-Nazi skinhead or robed KKK member as the typical present day racists, some of the most fervent and vocal racists of today are software developers and engineers in technology fields which are continually celebrated as ushering in a more progressive, egalitarian, and interconnected world through tech. A standout example of this was when Mike Enoch of The Right Stuff network of white supremacist podcasts was exposed as Mike Peinovich, a software developer. While a deeper analysis is beyond the scope of this piece, beneath the seemingly crisp, transparent, and immaculately designed user interfaces of Silicon Valley’s “disruptive” tech innovations lie the coercive and surveilling systems of profit extraction conceived, developed and tested by the likes of Eric Zarahn.

Bingo!  And this is why you should occasionally take a tour through the hard left and anarchist websites. The MSM and the Democratic party (but I repeat myself) are both filled with stupid people who can't be arsed to look deeply at what's happening in American. They've got their narratives and they're sticking to them, despite tons of evidence to the contrary.  But, there ARE some smart and perceptive people on the left, it's just that they're not a big part of the amoral, opportunistic, (a)political class that runs things.  Like us, they're more ideological and more committed to their struggle. And also like us, they're the intellectual wing of a revolutionary vanguard.

This is why what's happening right now with Trump is so important. During the 25 years following World War II, the left's revolutionary vanguard captured the zeitgeist, intellectually and culturally. When that happened, the ambitious opportunists (politicians) and those who hang on them (journalists) aligned themselves with the rising narrative. That's how you know a comprehensive political victory is almost won, when the carpetbaggers start showing up to stake their claims. The ideologues pushed their narratives further left, while the politically ambitious held the actual power, made the compromises and collected the laurels. The victory of the left was so complete that Republican politicians--also ambitious, amoral, (a)political operatives--picked up the scraps that fell from the table, staying just far enough behind the left (about a decade) to maintain plausible deniability.

Trump broke that cycle, crushing the dominant narrative, routing the left and flattening the cucks. Trump's political victory was complete, but Trumpism is a nascent narrative, young and strong, but not the dominant narrative.  It can only become the ruling narrative by vanquishing its rivals. This is where the revolutionary vanguard comes into its own. Politicians, big media journalists, the Dems, the Cucks and the Neo-Cohens are all unsuited for the struggle we're now fighting. They're insiders and bureaucrats, toadies of power and pullers of levers, not brawlers and polemicists.

The Alt-Right is the revolutionary vanguard of the Trumpening. Our road warriors are stepping forward and our intellectuals are waxing polemical. Meanwhile, the revolutionary vanguard of the left has grown soft and fat on victory. They've alienated their brawlers with gender nonsense and made their intellectuals stupid by forcing them to deny reality.  However, this is not a permanent state of affairs. If Trump fails, or if we're not fighting on all fronts, the left will come back. They'll eventually figure out how to fight a memetic war and we'll be in trouble. Trump cannot win this fight alone. He can make the conditions favorable for us to fight, but he can't win the street fights for us, and he can't win the polemical battle without us.

Posted Chicano Studies Major on 24 June 2016 - 10:00 AM

Today is a very instructive day to look at the various shades of left-wing publications and find that all of them are so far off the mark on this issue that you have to wonder if they live in some kind of poz bubble (they do).

It's either "we didn't explain the EU's benefits well enough" (translation: proles are stupid and slow), "prejudice prevailed over reason" (translation: proles are morally repugnant) or "now is the time to relaunch the EU as a truly European project" (translation: the proles just wanted more rootless globalism). None of them get it. This was a vote on ethnic integrity, national sovereignty and the most basic kind of political freedom: the freedom not to have petty tyrants in foreign lands dictate your way of life.

Leftists care about none of that. They just don't understand how anyone could object to the EU's inoffensive multicultural officialism. The ideal world of a left-liberal intellectual is a gargantuan city state filled with all colors and creeds who believe in inconsequential variations of liberal dogma and complacently submit themselves to the benevolent social engineering of a caring bureaucracy. Judging by the shocked and horrified reactions to our latest referendum, they also cannot imagine how anyone could not love this idea.

Indeed, the tide of history was briefly on the side of the left. Rapid increases in material wealth and urbanization produced a populace that was willing to give uprooted globalism a fair try. The failure of this project is increasingly visible to anyone but left-liberal dogmatists, who bitterly cling to their granola and COEXIST bumper stickers and lash out at anyone who demands change. But now that Based Nigel has dealt an embarrassing blow to one of their great pet projects in the most public way, the genie is definitely out of the bottle.

Dear shitlibs, batten down the hatches over your safe spaces - a storm of completely unchecked privilege and unreconstructed bigotry is brewing.

#204370 How transsexualism destroys identity

Posted PLEASUREMAN on 06 May 2015 - 02:25 AM

Quoted in a post on our favorite radfem blog, Gender Trender:

Quote

“You are NOT alone. Aside from some of the wonderful women here, this happened to my MIL. Luckily none of the children in that case were young, but it still caused serious problems for them–it was so devastating to his son that he moved to another country. My ex-stepFIL–who now is “a woman,” although he looks, talks, and behaves exactly like a man–barely has a relationship with his children anymore. He’s rarely permitted to see his biological grandchildren, and then only with supervision. (We allow him to see our daughters, but with the caveat that he is NOT to “present” as anything but male around them. We do not call him by his ridiculous tranny name and our girls are not even aware that he goes by a different name around other people.)

His health has been seriously damaged, but as others have said, he made/is making his own choice.

Anyway. Like you, my MIL found that there was zero support for her, and everyone, from therapists to online “support” groups, told her she was the one with the problem because she wasn’t thrilled at the idea of sleeping with/being married to a tranny, and didn’t believe that he could actually “become” anything more than a castrato with fake breasts, which is exactly what he is. More than once she ended up in tears because of how she was spoken to and treated by those people, and because they made her feel like SHE was the one at fault, SHE was the one whose behavior was cruel and unforgivable. It’s likely you will run into people who will say the same to you or treat you the same way. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT. YOU ARE NOT WRONG TO THINK THIS IS HORRIFYING AND YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY NOT WRONG TO PROTECT YOUR DAUGHTER IN ANY WAY YOU CAN.

(Sorry for the all-caps, but I feel the above needs an emphasis as strong as I can possibly give it.)

I cannot imagine how difficult this must be for you, having a young child. I am absolutely furious on your and her behalf at the monstrous selfishness and disregard for both of you that this man is displaying.
https://gendertrende...hove-been-there

One of the things that can be observed with serious addiction cases is the gradual disintegration of personality.  In effect, the addict's body and personality become mere devices for the procurement of the addictive substance or behavior.  Everything else, every other characteristic, is blunted or erased completely.

But I think if we look closely at the people around us, we can see that behavior which pushes people away from social interaction causes gradual erasure of the self, to be replaced with what are merely tics, fetishes, and compulsions (these lead to arousal and excitement but are curiously joyless).

The same process appears to be at work with transsexuals.  The first clue is the willingness to destroy close relationships through neglect, abandonment, or outrageous behavior.  Such destructive activity results from a long descent into the fetish of autogynephilia--the process of fetishization infects the personality like a cancer, eventually crowding out all other desires and attachments.  Relationships, which have inherently altruistic qualities for healthy personalities, weaken and break apart because the fetish becomes the central desire as in cases of chemical addiction.

The second clue is the desire to self-mutilate, usually in the form of taking opposite sex hormones but sometimes going to the extreme of genital mutilation to outwardly resemble that sex (of course internally nothing has really changed).  Similar to cases of anorexia nervosa, in which women are so consumed by a distorted self-image that they destroy their own bodies in response, transsexuals often make repeated alterations to their appearance that exposes them to significant health risks--everything from tracheal shaving to facial surgery to radical genital alteration.

(As should always be pointed out, when they opt for the last approach they are obliged to keep dildos shoved into their improvised fuckholes--the body cannot be fooled.)

The third clue is the newly self-centered personality.  Before assumption of a transsexual identity (that is, when there is still some control over the transsexual fetish) many of these people achieve success in their careers and produce families, whereas afterwards they appear to exist for no other reason than to be transsexuals.

Contrary to transsexual arguments, this is not because they have discovered their true identity but because they have obliterated their true identity.  As I have mentioned elsewhere, at the heart of this is a great misconception, that the self is a pure entity that is masked or distorted by conformity to social rules.  The exact opposite is true--the self only comes into being through the formation of healthy social relationships.  The brain is plastic but it is not indifferently so--there is healthy development and unhealthy development.  The former maintains psychic security and resilience through social relationships, and the latter malnourishes through isolation and obsession.

One need only look to the claims of transsexuals to see that they are completely deluded and inauthentic.  Among other things they claim that they feel profound discomfort unless they are allowed to wear opposite sex garments (especially underwear) which do not really fit their bodies.  This is a classic fetish symptom, the sense of agitation or restlessness unless they can experience the fetish even though it interferes with enjoyment of normal activities.

My argument is that this is more than just delusional behavior, it is part of a process that destroys personality.  Secondarily, we can judge the unhealthiness of this and other behaviors by the degree to which they damage important social relationships.

Other rants to the same effect percolate from catlady cauldrons daily. We're beginning to get at something essential here.

They rigged the institutions. They set behavioral and verbal boundaries within polite society. They shoved the dissidents further and further to the fringes, but the embers of freedom still burned. And just as before, like we always do, we found a way. We are too clever for them. We always were, and they'll always resent our genius and sheer bloody-mindedness.

The internet is ours. It's the platform for our revolution. There are no draconian affirmative action programs here. Justice is blind, and we needn't even show our faces. Cream rises to the top. Just look at this forum. Just read the threads, whisper the words to yourself as you browse, hear the music of freedom. Delight in the fact that they will never keep us from singing it.

It took aliases hidden behind fiber optic cable. Look at my absurd avatar. I'm pretending to be a major league pitcher, for Chrissakes, and still our side wins because we haven't based our lives upon lies.

One day I'll freely admit who I am, and I can't wait for it. But between now and then, let us pile up the skulls of those who would take this last vestige of freedom from us. Never forget what their designs were when they were closing in on full control. Never show an ounce of mercy.

Keep winning.

The GOP struck a MASSIVE blow the the Clintonista establishment wing of the Democratic tonight in Georgia.  Democrats threw everything and the kitchen sink - breaking records on campaign spending for a congressional race(7 Democratic dollars spent for every GOP dollar).  Ossoff was a polished candidate that perfectly fit the mold of the post-ideological neoliberal the consultant class believes will appeal to suburban whites.  Handel was untelegenic and ran on a stale platform.  Still, Trump's GOP held the line, giving it a perfect 4 out of 4 in special elections this year.

Things are looking grim for the DNC.  First and foremost, Ossoff's high-profile loss will make it difficult to convince high-quality Democratic candidates to risk embarrassment and challenge GOP incumbents in 2018.  Similarly, donors will be hesitant to throw good money after bad following Hillary's stinging loss in November and an even more well-funded Ossoff implosion.  Dwindling donor generosity won't be helped by Obama, who is actively competing with the DNC to fundraise for his Chicago-based 'Organizing for Action' slush-fund.  Finally, the establishment's low-level civil war with the Bernie Bros is going to heat up again after tonight.   Despite repeated rejection of Clintonism by voters and undeniable evidence that the 2016 Democratic Primary was rigged, the DNC has continued to deny leadership positions the activist wing of the party.  Tonight was a complete humiliation for the establishment, and they risk an outright mutiny if they continue to deny the Bernie-wing entry.  This means letting tankie communists and and nutjobs like Keith Ellison in on the action.

There isn't a path forward for Democrats in the foreseeable future.  Despite unprecedented amounts universal support from the media, Silicon Valley, and the deep state they continue to fail.  Their leadership is too small-souled to think outside the box and change course. Next year, 25 Democratic incumbents will be up for re-election compared with a paltry 8 GOP seats.  Democrats traditionally struggle with turnout during midterms, and if trends continue 2018 will be an all-out bloodbath.  No amount of astroturfing and Sorosbux can convince normal people to vote for them.

#281375 Jay Nordlinger Explains "How Trump Folk Talk"

  • 86

Posted Terrence Rhine on 24 July 2016 - 09:20 PM

I never wanted to make a thread for Jay Nordlinger because he’s not worth one, he’s just fine over in Tales of “Conservatism” and Cuckservatism Megathread, but I’ll bend the rules for the sake of length here because I took some interest in a recent article of his where he attempts to grapple with the lexicon of the Trump movement. This is the way he promoted the article in a separate blog:

Quote

One of the great complaints of Trump supporters is that no one listens to them — a complaint with some merit, I think. Well, I have listened to them. “I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear.” Someone wrote that a while ago. I have heard the carols of the Trumpites.

…Mine is not a nice piece. But it is a sincere and I think truthful one. Trump supporters will not like it, but some of them may experience a shock, or at least a tremor, of recognition.

If he does say so himself. We will now proceed to see about that but let me hint at the ending: the contents of the lexicon are perfectly recognizable but Nordlinger’s self-congratulation about such an elementary list is unwarranted, and the shallowness of his take on the terms is significant.

As he says right away, Nord does not consider himself to be addressing the Alt Right (“I am not going to talk about the Nazis or the fascists or the racists or the ‘identitarians.’”), and he segregates the term “cuck” from the other terms he discusses. But the fact is that he is talking about the Alt Right, because the terms and ideas he grapples with here are what the rising real Right is really all about—he just can’t see it past the gas chamber memes. (He does say “I may address them another day” so, you know, :allears: ) If anything, the reason these concepts aren’t merely “alt right” is that they’re bigger and more basic and inherently more mainstream than that, they’ve just been repressed until now.

So though he tries to segregate it with the Alt Right and pass it over in this piece, the actual first term in his Trumpster lexicon that he has a jaundiced view of is our favorite one, our masterpiece, our baby:

Cuck

Quote

The alts believe that the conservatives let dark-skinned people come in and rape their women and take over the country. Hence, they are “cucks.”

So we writers at National Review, for example, would be “cuckservatives,” led by “William F. Cuckley.” :lol: That’s the way they talk.

It would take a heart of stone to read this without laughing and swelling with pride at how much eloh’s stupid little term still gets to them after well over a year now. (yes note to Nordlinger for when he’s ready to research his follow-up piece on the racists: the term was coined by forums martyr “eloh” in one of his meltdowns; I’m available for interviews on this Jay let’s talk)

The best summation of what a cuckservative is goes like this: a conservative who loves his country so much that he wants everybody to be able to move into her. Nordlinger presumably believes the dark-skin rapist angle to be hysterical, but that’s not really the charge. The charge is that cucks do not dedicate their politics to their own posterity but to that of others. They may love their country, but they insist that she belongs to everybody. Here Nordlinger would typically object that NR supports immigration restriction and then neglect to mention their consistent support of pro-immigration politicians and also that William F. Cuckley fired the immigration restrictionists.

We then come to the Trump folk terms proper:

Globalist

Quote

I think the most prominent word, from Trumpites, is “globalist.” That is their epithet of choice. It seems to have replaced “cosmopolitan,” or “rootless cosmopolitan,” a once-common slur against Jews.

For the record I still use and embrace the terms “cosmopolitan,” “rootless cosmopolitan,” and “Jew,” all still terrific epithets in my opinion. If Jay’s interested there is also “merchant,” “traveling friends,” and my favorite, “high-functioning gypsies.”

Quote

It is one of those nonsense words of the populist Right.

As Orwell said, depriving a concept of a name is powerful. What name then will Jay allow us to give the thing we are talking about when we say “globalist” or “rootless cosmopolitan” ? What would be the non-nonsense word?

Nordlinger loves bitching about the petty linguistic tyrannies of the Left. Yet he is never more effeminately leftist himself than in his frequent habit of accusing people of using anti-semitic code whenever they complain about bankers or the 1% or globalists or whatever. What terms will he accept that are neither nonsense nor code for “Jew” when we want to describe that thing that “globalist” is meant to describe—you know the thing that Romney and Ryan and the GOP donors are, that thing that Americans don’t want to be but that prior to Trump no one was willing to grant them a legitimate opposition to? Nordlinger insists that he and NR have been pro-sovereignty this whole time, but then why does he sneer at using a word to describe the opposite?

Ryan and his congress just pushed through (using lies and backroom secrecy) a trade deal that could not possibly be considered pro-sovereignty—what word are we allowed to use for it?

Open Borders

Quote

They will always charge that you are for “open borders” — even if you have been arguing for a restrictionist immigration policy your entire career. And at some cost to yourself.

“Even if you have been arguing for a restrictionist immigration policy your entire career.” Yes and supporting mass immigration politicians your entire career.

“At some cost to yourself.” :lol: Peter Brimelow et al were not available for comment.

Nord proceeds to tell some pretentious story about the Khmer Rouge, his point being that “open borders” when hurled against noble immigration restrictionists like NR is a meaningless epithet like a communist calling someone “CIA.” (Or a neocon calling someone “fascist,”  or a cuck calling someone “racist”…). But George W. Bush really did try to have open borders—his immigration proposal in 2004 was a visa for anyone who could get a position as a serf, along with their families. Paul Ryan really did just pass open borders trade legislation—the president can bring in any new workers he wants. The question is why isn’t “open borders” an epithet that NR throws around, if they’re such immigration hawks?

Open borders for Israel / Israel Firsters / Neocons / Perpetual or endless war

He doesn’t have much to say here except to whine about the terms. The commitment of the now-dying conservative movement to idiotic belligerence in e.g. Syria isn’t even addressed.

Quote

The alt-Rightists often say “neocohen.” Get it? Get it? Good one, huh?

:lol: yeah it is

Quote

not that these Trumpers have the slightest idea what a neocon is. They have a vague sense that it means warmongering globalist.

This is a strawman made out of run-of-the-mill Trump supporters that denies the larger ideological movement that at its heights certainly does know what a neocon is (a lot of his evaluations here are strawmen about imprecision). But at any rate Nordlinger doesn’t want to educate us on what a neocon is. That’s because he’d prefer the word not exist, Orwell-style. He always tries to paper neocon foreign policy with something like “Reaganite”—fighting for freedom wherever there’s trouble.

Despite the number of terms here that address the American empire in Israel’s neighborhood, Nordlinger doesn’t bother to explain why any of this is wrong and acts like he doesn’t understand the spirit behind the terms. We have been at war in the Middle East for decades and all of Nordlinger’s politicians want us to add and escalate new ones. Yet while we fight them over there we have to let everyone move here, according to NR’s preferred candidates. Nordlinger pretending not to understand the dispute here is the main area where he seems less goofily, childishly clueless and genuinely sinisterly dishonest.

Establishment

Quote

I once wrote an essay on the use and abuse of the word “establishment,” and I won’t recapitulate it here. Suffice it to say that I think people should make arguments for or against various policies without recourse to bogey words such as “establishment.”

well of course that’s what someone in the establishment would say

RINO

Quote

In any event, my critics can spare me the “RINO” charge because I left the Republican party when Donald Trump cinched the Republican nomination

haha no let’s still call him a RINO

Donor class / cocktail parties / Elites

Quote

Someone said to me recently, “You’re working for your donor-class overlords.” This is kind of funny, when the initial shock wears off.

when the shock wears off :lol:

Here he continues his approach of just ignoring the case behind these expressions and whining about them (how is he not working for the donor class when he promotes their mass immigration politicians?), but one tack that his whining takes is telling:

Quote

One of the reasons I rejected the Left, many years ago, is that they spoke constantly of “class.” No one could be an individual; everyone had to be shoved into a class. I now hear the same kind of language — ideological language, extremist language — from the Right.

He does this a lot in his writing, moaning that “class” is supposed to be a left-wing thing. It’s impressive how consistently it fails to occur to him that maybe there is something to “class” as a political concern if so many people insist on bringing it up. In his Orwellian disdain for so much as using the words “class,” “elite,” “donor,” he just reconfirms that he isn’t really on the side of sovereignty, immigration control, or Americans at all.

It’s not about ideology / It’s not about box-checking

Well it wasn’t about ideology when Nordlinger supported Bush, McCain, and Romney. They failed whole rows of boxes on the NR checklist—Bush explicitly rejected small government in 2000, reacting to the Republican defeats of the Clinton years; McCain agreed with NR on basically nothing significant but war—but NR supported them and Nordlinger loved them gayly. What people mean by “it’s not about ideology” is the same thing as when they reject left vs. right in favor of nationalism vs. globalism.  Trump is the first politician in decades running on the platform that we (like Israel) deserve to have our own country. We can argue about what kind of policies to have in that country incidentally but we need to reestablish that it is our country first. Nordlinger is pretending that the “America is a marketplace for everyone” approach of his beloved Romney, Ryan etc would leave any kind of country left for us actual Americans to argue policy in.

You’re for Hillary / Another vote for Hillary / The primary is over

(Nerdlinger tendentiously punctuates a lot of these with exclamation points to make the Trumpsters sound bratty but I'm not going to do that. Jay himself is a real sissy though so it wouldn't be inappropriate to imagine a lot of his self-pitying sentences in this article as crybaby exclamations)

He whines that he’s being told he’s helping Hillary by not holding his nose and voting for the imperfect GOP candidate. Yet disaffected whites were supposed to vote for Dole, Bush, Mccain, etc…

Your time is over

Quote

they often tell me. I want to reply, “I had a time? Who knew? I wish someone had told me! I might have enjoyed ‘my time’ …”

don’t worry Jay I will probably keep doing posts about you long after the now-defunct National Review is literally gone (i.e., a few months from now)

True Conservatives

Quote

They say that George Will is not a conservative. Will is, of course, a classic conservative.

George Will, classic conservative.

Quote

They tell Mona Charen that she is not a conservative. She worked in the Reagan White House. She has been on the frontlines for decades.

Mona Charen, you’re not a conservative.

Quote

If they want to call themselves nationalists and populists and protectionists and Buchananites and nativists and identitarians and Trumpites, that’s fine with me. But they insist (some of them) that they are conservatives. And that all others are heretics.

Now we’re getting somewhere but the bottom line is that there is no conservatism—no small government, no self-government, no accountable government, no traditional culture—with globalism or mass immigration. Just the nth example of how Nordlinger is lying when he insists he and NR are immigration restrictionists; he says he is and then he says someone who supports transformational migration can be a conservative.

Threats

Quote

Ever and always, there is the threat — explicit or implicit — that things will be very bad for anti-Trump conservatives, once The Donald wins…Their candidate’s style is belligerent, and so is theirs.

lol f**k you the anti-Trump cucks have been threatening retribution this whole campaign. it’s just sadder coming from them because their time has passed

He concludes with some pompous note on respect for the truth: “Live not by lies” *fires John Derbyshire*

Nordlinger thinks language is his wheelhouse but this piece is just pathetic: it’s mostly crying about boilerplate expressions and piling on imprecise colloquialisms used by nonprofessional civilians. “It’s not about checklists, you’re not a true [group identity here]”—these are just things rank and file people will always say. Nordlinger is just being a baby imbuing them with importance.

But there is something else behind this. The persistent themes are effeminate butthurt and next level disingenuousness about the stage of the road the Right has come to. When I say this article really is about the Alt Right whether he admits it or not it’s because the political direction that this lexicon represents—its preoccupation with globalism, the donor class, elites, immigration and foreign policy unrelated to American interests—is the new north star of the Right, and of the patriotic, tradition-and-liberty-desiring American citizenry that constitutes it. And Nordlinger doesn’t know how to deal with it.

Quad's list of dos and don'ts is pointless.  THESE ARE f**kING RETARDS.  This march had an asinine mission (to protect a monument in someone else's city by invading with fat malcontents in polo shirts) and could only have attracted the most useless, degenerate portions of the fringe right.

KNOWING that the media would be against you, KNOWING that the city was unhappy with your presence, KNOWING your rank and file are stupid pigs, and KNOWING that your "leaders" can't organize anything more complicated than trolling Shia Laboeuf...YOU WENT AND DID IT ANYWAY.  Abject retards.

"We can't control everyone who decides to show up"--no s**t, and not helping matters is that notable figures in charge have drug/drinking problems, are vain gloryhounds, and were more interested in possible side vagina they could get than in disciplining anyone on their side (probably a hopeless task anyway).  All of which is an excellent reason NOT TO DO THIS s**t.  You suck at it, and it's very obvious you're not going to get better.

Fools yesterday were trying to downplay this--"oh it'll blow over"--which perfectly encapsulates the "What, me worry?" imbecility that pervades the right.  Never do homework and hope for the best.  Just figure it will all work out.  "We shifted the Overton window!" gurgles some midwit Internet addict.  Yes, you did--the wrong way, retard!

You helped antifa recover from humiliating defeats earlier in the year.  You handed the media negative PR on the entire right on a silver platter.  You derailed a fantastic opportunity to go after Google et al over illegal hiring practices and brazenly anti-conservative policies.

YOU f**kED UP AND NOW IT'S TIME FOR YOUR BEATING.  DON'T EVEN THINK OF MAKING EXCUSES FOR YOURSELVES.  YOU ARE COMPLETE FUCKUPS AND I NEVER WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU AGAIN.  THERE ARE NO OTHER LESSONS.

Eternal reminder that the only reason Hillary Clinton has a political career at all is because she is a woman. She married a man who was a much more charismatic and adept politician, a natural leader, and used his popularity to gain national prominence. She admitted this to the entire world when she was cuckqueened by Bill and remained - remains - in the marriage because she needed him to win her Senate seat.

All the posturing about "she overcame", and glass ceilings, and yass slay independent and strong queen must be seen in this light. She did what women who managed to gain any degree of prominence in human history typically did - married the right man. And there's nothing wrong with this, it's just how woman navigate their way into the corridors of power. But don't for one f**king second pretend she's some exception, some revolutionary, the first of her kind.

She was handed her fame and fortune on a silver platter, but her incompetence, narcissism, and general inhumanity led her to fail where many other women would and already have succeeded.

Shares of technology stocks tanked, dragging the index around 4 percent on visa concerns. Stocks like TCS, Infosys and Wipro   fell 3-5 percent while Tech Mahindra tanked 10 percent intraday Tuesday as minimum salary of H-1B visa holders is proposed to be more than double. A legislation has been introduced in the US House of Representatives which among other things calls for more than doubling the minimum salary of H-1B visa holders to USD 130,000, making it difficult for firms to use the programme to replace American employees with foreign workers, including from India.

Hot damn, American tech workers jumped for joy! As it happens 130k is just above inflation, which has nearly halved salary values since H1-B legislation was last passed in 1989. If only this legislation was such that we wouldn't need to pass future legisla...

It raises the salary level at which H-1B dependent employer are exempt from attestation requirements to a new required wage level of 35 percentile points above the median national annual wage for Computer and Mathematical Occupations published by the Department of Labour Occupational Employment Statistics (roughly USD132,000), which would be adjusted in the future without the need for new legislation, and eliminates the Master’s Degree exemption for dependent employers.

HALLELUJAH PRAISE THE LORD

My friend is a technical recruiter, and this will would utterly eliminate any chance of his company ever hiring an H1-B again. Certainly, out here in my state there is no H1-B worth that price tag. In fact, let's take a closer look at the nationwide numbers.

Less than 10% of H1-B holders nationwide would meet these new salary requirements! Take a look at the above link and check out the salaries in your local area. Here in my state we'd be ditching 97%+ of our H1-Bs.

By the God Emperor, make this happen.

Hope you're having a great current year already, my fellow bigots.

These cold winter days around the turn of the year make for great reflection, and there certainly was a lot to reflect on. I hope this won't just devolve into a subconscious rehashing of Jung Man's seminal remarks from November - but I'll give a little credit in advance just in case (and a strong hint to Jung Man to POAST MOAR).

I think I speak for many among my f****t generation when I say that we've always felt like strangers in our own lands. The end of history afterglow of the 90s was quickly extinguished by the WTC attacks, the rise of the surveillance state, Bush-era neoconservatism, good jobs disappearing to Asia left and right. As if this wasn't bad enough, the political reaction to this mess came in the form of Obama and unhinged postmodern leftism. Obama was the first leader of the free world I experienced as an adult, and his reign made abundantly clear that my feelings had been right: this was not meant to be my world anymore.

Like so many others, I experienced my politically formative years as an outcast in the wilderness, uneasily juggling libertarianism, MRA talking points, HBD spergery and the warped moral framework that so many Millennials have acquired, trying to make it fit somehow. But while the old guard in all these fringe movements seemed to have fond recollections of a world that once was, I didn't. There was no hope. There was only techno-aristocracy and working as a depth groveler after the 2070 paradigm shift. But gallows humor didn't make it better, and neither did Charles Murray or Steve Sailer.

As the refugee crisis in Europe unfolded, I was all but ready to throw in the towel. Exhausted peoples signing away their future under the macabre tutelage of cat ladies and NGOs. Every last bit of reactionary culture pessimism was seemingly confirmed. What could a single person possibly do to reverse this?

But what my depressiveness concealed from me was that so many others were asking the same question, waiting impatiently for the opportunity to enact meaningful change. And then, seemingly out of nowhere, it started happening. Big things, small things, everything was in motion: the current year had arrived. As millions of dissatisfied deplorables around the world started punching the hollow facade of managerial liberalism, we finally noticed how many we are and how scared our superiors were of us. Sure, they could still try and pick off some of us individually, but they couldn't stop the movement as a whole.

20, 30, maybe 40 years of things going slowly but steadily downhill had finally awoken the Saxon and gotten him in the right mood to pick a fight:



This is still my favorite video of the last current year. It's the defamed stale pale male, slightly greyed, hugely outnumbered, but not afraid, not backing down, drawing energy from the fight in real time. A walking, talking trigger to undesirables of all stripes, just like his commander-in-chief, the great and inimitable Donald J. Trump.

Such is the world we live in now. Such is the current year. Hear the ongoing lamentations of cucks and shitlibs, know that you've been given another chance and rejoice, for this is 2017 and our dead gay civilization is finally in conversion therapy.

Turns out that endless wars, Soviet-level surveillance, suspension of basic rights, epidemic poverty and decadent golfing are just fine if, and only if, the people in charge are diverse. All of Dubya's sins would have been forgiven, indeed never even brought up, if only he had been black, gay or a woman.

There's no more denying that this is the one and only remaining moral category of the left, which is why so many normies have turned away from it in frustration and disgust.

Part 5: The All-Powerful 5,000,000-D Chessmaster

The caricature from the self-caricature alt-right is that Trump supporters--"fools"--excuse everything Trump does by calling it some absurd variation of 5D chess.  This was a meme used hyperbolically during the election, but which is now deployed by blackpilled alt-righters to sarcastically (and childishly) deny that any interpretation of events other than their own is valid.  Merely by snarkily referencing "5D chess", inane bloggers with practically no life experience can expound (blow hard) about politics well into the night, proud of never being wrong, or never being really wrong, or only being wrong for the right reasons--whatever the current bullshit excuse is.

In reality, politics is rarely two-dimensional--hence, Republicans who really supported DACA nevertheless loudly criticized it when there was no hope of doing anything about it.  (Or Obamacare.  Or our porous southern border.  Or abortion.  Or gay marriage.)  There is, normally, a certain amount of kabuki.  The legislative calendar is arranged by partisan needs.  Many pieces of legislation are designed to fail, or to succeed and then to fail, or whatever convoluted outcome is required.  Because they do this every day, legislators are usually smarter about this than the blog-reading spectators.

By now, using 5D snark to defuse counter-argument is the dumb person's tactic.  It's only deployed by dumb, insecure people who don't have a lot to go on other than their depressive feelings and the toll that being antisocial has taken on them.

MPC--I can speak for it because I created it--does not believe in an all-powerful Trump.  We also do not believe that an all-powerful Trump, or a victorious Trump presidency, is required to move forward.  Very nice to have, but not a requirement.  Even a failed Trump presidency is superior to the bumbling alt-right meth squad, which aside from being antisocial, stupid, bitter, insular, self-serving, unpopular, narcissistic, and amoral, is just plain unpleasant.

A failed Trump presidency has still accomplished the following:

- created a populist uprising that has shown fanatical devotion

- badly damaged the conservative media establishment

- separated a majority of the base from the Republican establishment

- reoriented right wing politics around immigration and trade instead of taxes and budget cuts

- ground neocon warmongering to a halt

- proved the enemy's vulnerability--it can bleed, and therefore it can die

- for the first time in a century, made America First a successful political slogan

If you can't appreciate that, you need to switch from blackpills to a full bottle of your mom's Ambien.  It's courteous, however, to leave a note.

#375107 MAGA or GTFO

  • 83

Posted Hazmat Harry on 17 August 2017 - 04:53 AM

The events of the last few days have brought things sharply into focus. I've not had much of a coherent political ideology for some years now. Who is "us?" What "cause" am I supporting? What "political goal" do I care about? Charlottesville finally made it clear to me:

My ideal political system is the one where Donald Trump succeeds in his MAGA agenda and wins reelection in 2020.

Armchair Chad is right; ideology is a trap. Ideology pushes you to follow bad leaders who are going nowhere. Ideology teaches you to join failing organizations and dedicate your lives to lost causes. Is the Libertarian Party any closer to winning an election? Are anarcho-capitalists any closer to abolishing the government? Is David French any closer to winning the respect and admiration of liberals? Do you actually believe, really, deep in your heart, that Adolf Skywalker will create a pan-global white pagan super-imperium?

The fact is that most of us aren't very important. Whatever we think doesn't really matter. Even important people's ideals never really get implemented (how much of Dwight Eisenhower's ideal society came to pass?). A few years ago, I was pretty confident I had really proved that fiat money was a bad idea. But hey, it turns out, I don't matter. The Federal Reserve is still around. If you're one of the 99.9999% of people who don't matter, probably the most important political decision you can make is which leader to follow. And as I see it, there's only one real choice.

The American right already a charismatic leader who unites us.
Posted Image

We have a message we've settled on.
Posted Image

We have rallies where we outnumber antifa 500 to 1.
Posted Image

We have marches where nobody gets killed.
Posted Image

We have a flag that makes people feel patriotic instead of angry.
Posted Image

It's true that on Team MAGA, you won't agree with everyone on everything. But that's what winning teams have to do. Winning means finding something 63,000,000 people can agree on. But unlike those failed leaders who never seem to get any higher than 7th place in a 7 man contest, we're actually getting things. We're getting a wall with Mexico. We're scuzzing shitlibs in the media. We're bringing jobs back to America. We're putting Antifa thugs in prison. We have political meetings near you where we figure out how to Make Local Politics Great Again, too.

At this point, if you're not on board with MAGA, you're not on board with winning. Frankly, I had my fill of losing for the last decade and a half. The fact is you only have two options: MAGA or GTFO. If you want to join David French and Nick Gillespie over there on the bleachers of Team GTFO, whining that you never get your ideal society because nobody listens to you, that's your choice. There are a dozen different versions of that on the right, and they're full of angry losers who don't win anything and don't have hot chicks at their rallies.

If you want things to be even marginally better in a decade than they are right now, MAGA's the only choice. All other choices are Very Fake News. They're really just different masks on GTFO.

Posted Harry Dexter Whyte on 16 August 2017 - 08:19 PM

It's worth remembering that by saying what he's been saying Carlson is knowingly and willingly surrendering his multi-million dollar salary, his status as a prime time pundit, and his good reputation among all the people that really really matter (ie. the one's who talk to George Will at cocktail parties). Because there's only one way that this ends - and that's with him losing his job. There's no two ways about it. He's been too honest, he's engaged in too much real talk, he's been far too in tune with his listeners to keep his position. They'll (and by they I mean the nefarious cabal of shitlibs and s**tlib sympathizers running all the way through from Marco Rubio to Fox News executives to those illegal immigrant antifa activists - they are all on the same page here) force him out one way or another.

I have no doubt that Carlson knows this. Everyone in his position knows this - that there are certain lines you do not cross. Witness the response of the mainstream "Conservatives" - which has been full on appeasement towards the Left. That's were the wind is blowing, but Carlson tacked in the opposite direction. That takes guts. Not the "omg Mitt Romney is so brave for tweeting in favor of antifa and getting 300k likes" type of guts but real, honest to god guts. Trump levels of guts. He's that type of guy and he's done enough to prove it. He's doing what most Conservatives (including myself) can't or won't do - speak their minds in public.

The funny thing is that even the most mild real life Conservatives agree with him. Don't believe me? Just go to /r/Conservative (who are normally the most mild, run of the mill, DEMS R THE REAL BIGOTS types) and see what they have to say about all of this. Honestly that has been the biggest "white pill" or whatever you want to call it for me, realizing that normal Conservatives really aren't f**ked in the head like their supposed "leaders". They know the score, and Trump was speaking directly to and for them when he called out the Left on it's s**t.

Tucker is doing the same, every single night while he still has the opportunity. And for that he deserves our utmost respect.

I haven't seen much discussion about the Special Counsel here on MPC.  It's obvious that the Republicans could have strangled this "Russia!" baby in the crib if they wanted.  Instead, they have lent legitimacy to the DNC's claims and accepted their frame from the get go, allowing such actors as CrowdStrike, Fusion GPS etc... to evade the public eye.

What I'm asking for is a whitepill.

Well, this may not be a whitepill, but...

The issue isn't Republicans vs. Democrats.  It's the establishment desperate to protect its plans to turn the middle class into serfs who eat junk food and spend what little money they have buying disposable crap, largely at the behest of billionaire plutocrats.  This is the form modern aristocracy takes.  It turns out it isn't foppish intellectuals in crushed velvet waistcoats like neoreaction tards thought.

Removing Comey was necessary--we know this now beyond any doubt--but it was sure to escalate the conflict between the people and the establishment.

Is it shocking that some of the people root for the aristocrats?  It shouldn't be, there has always been loyalist scum, since the days of the revolution, who take a special, weird glee from knowing they are just far enough above the bottom to s**t on someone below them while licking the boots of the elite class.

But this is all impotent flailing.  Trump won't be removed from office by leaks (these appear to date back to January) or by the risible Russian investigation.  The media has largely discredited itself and you don't need to be L. Brent Bozell to find clear evidence of bias in every article about Trump it puts out.  Trump's supporters are hanging with him through thick and thin because he forged an almost indestructible bond with them during the campaign.  Now is when that bond protects him.

Look at who we have on our side.  The police, the military (aside from high ranking ladder climbers), the white middle class, and a growing number of intellectuals who can easily see the bogus nature of establishment attacks on Trump.  This is a fight worth having and we're going to win it.

So I was on a goon infested offsite forum posting pro-Trump conservative opinions and ideas while s**tlib goons were dogpiling me. One guy, a true believer, asked me why I was opposed to muslim/illegal mexican immigration, and I listed plenty of reasons I don't need to repeat here.

#296099 The Alt-Right

  • 83

Posted PLEASUREMAN on 28 September 2016 - 10:28 AM

To start with, if you haven't read Andrew Anglin's article on the alt-right, it's a great summary of its short history and an accurate assessment of what it is as a political phenomenon.  This saves me from having to restate a lot of what Anglin has already stated.  My purpose here is merely to fill in some detail and give my take on some of the arguments going around about what the alt-right's identity is.

Anglin gives a comprehensive list of subgroups that make up the alt-right, which is really an umbrella term for the space on the right outside mainstream conservatism.  If we were to leave it there, then there has always been an alt-right and it is typically made up of fringe ideologies that have little mass appeal.  There are three noteworthy things about the alt-right which distinguish it from these fringe ideologies.

First, the alt-right was created by the ideological and physical shrinking of mainstream conservatism.  What I term Buckley conservatism, and which morphed into "cuckservatism" in its old age, coalesced around a series of increasingly anti-conservative ideas such as:  religious faith in free markets, individual liberty over public governance, and a severely truncated social conservatism.  In the main, Buckley conservatism developed in opposition to Soviet communism during the Cold War.  As Buckley conservatism shrank in the range of ideas it accepted, it also evolved in various ways to remain acceptable to a media-defined Overton window, which led to increasing efforts to purge heretics from its (thinning) ranks.  This is a crucial point in explaining why the alt-right came to be.

Second, the old one-way mass media model of Western communication was being weakened by the Internet.  This damaged the ability of official ideological leaders (usually supported by plutocrats) to manage right wing discourse.  With forerunners like The Drudge Report and Breitbart, alt-right groups developed their own modes of communication and siphoned off those who remained within mainstream conservatism out of inertia.  The decline of the mass media model caused a greater range of creativity and personalities on the alt-right, and selection pressures became more populist.  Mutually influencing alt-right groups went through a rapid evolution of ideological and rhetorical styles, learning from each other at a quickened pace.

Third, a generational break occurred.  When political circumstances change, they can lead to a state where existing political divisions no longer make any sense.  At such point there is a need for political divisions to realign to a state that is more in accordance with the current political circumstances.  However, political views tend to be conservative--that is, people tend to retain the same views over time, especially those views which coalesced upon reaching full adulthood.  This is because political views have a social dimension, and to that degree go into forming social identity.  In this regard they are much like fashions, manners, and buying habits.  After young adulthood, when social identity settles into its mature form, political views tend to be retained even if they no longer describe the outside world very well.  When there arises a marked change in the political environment, succeeding generations form views more in tune with new circumstances, and as the older generation passes from the scene this leads to political realignment on a mass scale.

These three factors are what make the alt-right something different from a traditional political fringe.  (Indeed, in some respects it is mainstream conservatism that is at risk of becoming a political fringe, as indicated by its elderly demographics and waning influence.  This despite being backed by an enormous amount of capital--but then, to a large extent it is this capital which has caused it to develop an inflexible and stultifying hierarchy.)

Looking at the alt-right as a whole, it is ideologically unformed.  From one end to the other it looks extremely heterogenous, and over the few years it has existed there has been a changing mix of ideas and focus.  Its coherence comes not from ideology but from adjacence and populism.  The subgroups which Anglin identifies all have alignments with at least one or two other subgroups, and they all share common enemies, namely the anti-populist political and media elite.  Its inherent populism and its diversity of views have also thwarted the efforts by putative "leaders" to hijack the alt-right for their own purposes.  There are simply not enough conforming views to facilitate such a takeover.

At the same time, the alt-right is incredibly energized for such a heterodox collection of subgroups.  This comes from both its relative youth and the long-suppressed emotional energy contained within populism.  With populist ideas as fuel, the alt-right has surged forth in such an explosion of creativity and confidence that, despite its relative numbers, it has captured elite attention (and provoked elite anxiety) and completely shaken up the American political scene in just a few years.  Not bad work at all.

You also get a better understanding just how much a fatherless household affects kids.  The students who loved me the most and hated me the most had one thing in common - fatherless households.  I had a group of about 7 girls that absolutely loved me.  I was their only male teacher, and they'd come see me before school, after school, between classes, anytime they could.  They all wanted my attention, just a little bit of my time.  If I remembered some detail about their lives and thought to ask about it, they were thrilled.  They needed a male in their lives so badly, a male who took an interest in their lives and showed genuine care for them.  I could only give them a bit of time and attention, but that was all it took because they were so starved of positive male attention in their lives.  On the flip side, I had girls who would test me endlessly.  They clearly had daddy issues, and would respond to any question or comment from me with disrespect, eye rolling, the whole preteen angst spectrum.  With the boys, it usually worked in my favor.  Mexican boys, in particular, responded very strongly to me telling them when their behavior was childish and unmanly.  I had one boy, constantly in trouble in all classes, who I brought outside and gave a "are you going to be a man or a baby?" speech to.  He straightened up immediately, and was rarely a problem in my class from then on out.  Others just asked me endless questions about being a man, being married, and being a dad.  They loved hearing my perspective on these things.

Posted Harry Dexter Whyte on 07 July 2017 - 07:02 PM

I think it is worth contrasting what Trump said about the West in Poland with what John McCain said about the West a few months ago in Germany. Here's McCain:

Quote

From the ashes of the most awful calamity in human history was born what we call the West—a new, and different, and better kind of world order ... one based not on blood-and-soil nationalism, or spheres of influence, or conquest of the weak by the strong, but rather on universal values, rule of law, open commerce, and respect for national sovereignty and independence. Indeed, the entire idea of the West is that it open to any person or any nation that honors and upholds these values.

This is the typical, boilerplate cuckservative conception of the West. It was born out of the horrors of the camps at Auschwitz, and is itself merely a globalist construct - the EU, NATO, and the IMF. Indeed, the "values" it espouses are utterly and entirely self-referential to those globalist structures, namely the open flow of capital (both human and financial). Furthermore, they are universal - that is, lacking any human or cultural component. Therefore these "values" are open to the entire world, and indeed will be forced on the rest of the world (this makes his line about "conquest" fundamentally absurd and dishonest) should it not comply. This is why Russia, too, must force its children to take hormone blockers or forever be regarded as a threat to ARE civilization.

In short, for someone like McCain the West is Goldman Sachs manipulating your currency while funding the poz pushers ruining your nation.

Compare that to Trump:

Quote

Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe value individual freedom and sovereignty. We must work together to confront forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are. (Applause.) If left unchecked, these forces will undermine our courage, sap our spirit, and weaken our will to defend ourselves and our societies.

Ostensibly his attitude is similar, but there are a few clear differences which make Beinart and his ilk so hysterical. From the start, Trump addresses Americans, Poles, and the nations of Europe as the "West". He is not addressing the world, but a specific group of nations who share a bond which makes them the "West". And what is that bond? This is the crucial point. Whereas Mccain sees the bond as simply a NATO treaty put in place a few decades ago, Trump sees that bond as one of culture, faith and tradition. That is, not only does the West refer to a specific group of nations and peoples - but that they are Western is not the result of a political construct imposed 70 years ago, but of who they are as cultures.

Finally, while both Trump and McCain acknowledge that the West is under threat they differ as to what exactly that threat is. For McCain, the danger is any force that challenges the globalist scheme (the "West" in his conception) and the society dissolving effects that accompany it. For Trump, the danger is globalism. So what Trump has done is completely redefined, or rather returned to an older definition of, what Western Civilization is. This represents an existential threat to people like Beinart and McCain.

I'll end with Trump's own words, which drive a stake through the cuckservative heart:

Quote

What we have, what we inherited from our -- and you know this better than anybody, and you see it today with this incredible group of people -- what we've inherited from our ancestors has never existed to this extent before. And if we fail to preserve it, it will never, ever exist again. So we cannot fail.

This is the most radical thing any American politician has said in the last 60 years. If as a Conservative you aren't 100% behind Trump at this point you are either a shill, an imbecile, or a traitor.

I have just gotten back home from the Sacramento Trump March and I've got to say that it was a fantastic experience. The event was very well organized with perimeter security and free refreshments/BBQ. The security detail were all wearing blue & black uniforms with BAOFENG radios of what I later learned was the ACD (a California Militia group). The lessons of the first Berkeley march have been learned very well. A lot of men were carry large "flagpoles" and folding knives.

I'm estimating attendance to be about 350 people, and about 50 of them I believe to be military veterans. This was a crowd looking for a fight, in fact there was a general sigh of disappointment when one of the organizers announced that there was zero sign of any counter-demonstration. The marchers assembled at the McKinley Park in Sacramento and marched for about 45 minutes through the streets. It was a pleasant march all things considered. The only opposition we encountered at all was a (probably gay) man calling us Fascists. After the march, we resembled back in the park to hear a few speeches. Way too many of the speeches were "Dems are the real racists", which I found annoying, but it played really well with the normies.

To my complete surprised Kyle "Based Stickman" Chapman was there. I said hi and told him that I'm a fan of his work. He asked me to attend the April 15th March in Berkeley and told me that, "We could use all the muscle we can get and you've got a lot of muscle. Will you be there?"

Being a bodybuilder who is also Gay and Racist, I'm INCREDIBLY susceptible to flattery and I promised to join him for the Second Berkeley March.

It's brilliant and subtle, simpers Jay Rosen, which basically assures us that it is neither of these things.  What is it?  Well it's only the most brilliant and subtle sketch SNL has ever aired.

Posted Image

Or, rather, erred.  Slate's pet blacksplainer, the laboriously bloglike Jamelle Bouie, gushes at length, but his subhead is one big fat spoiler:

Quote

It had more to say about class and race than a thousand tenderly crafted portraits of the white working class.

Bouie's annoyance that people are still talking about the white working class (not his beat) screeches through.  You see, the way politics works in Multicultura is that your interests inherently take oxygen from my interests, so my job is to shout over you until you can't be heard.  (Which, incidentally, is how protest groups all function.)

Quote

In telling the story of the white workers who backed Trump, they missed the perspective of the black ones who rejected him. This is important. Without that perspective, you risk downplaying the consequences of Trump support—not for supporters, but for the groups Trump has targeted throughout his campaign. Empathy without clarity leads to a place where Trump’s material threat to nonwhites—“stop and frisk,” mass deportation, Muslim surveillance, etc.—is treated as incidental to the story of Trump and his support, when it’s the opposite.

But black voters don't really accept or reject politicians, they vote as a bloc for their patrons.  Corruption in black politics would be legendary if it weren't so banal, whether it is Jesse Jackson shaking down companies to pay for his baby mama or Al Sharpton inflaming race relations everywhere first class can take him.  The sophistication of black political rhetoric is exemplified by pampered moron Ta Coates, an adult male who still reads comic books.

Neither midwit hacks nor pet nig bloggers like Bouie care to discuss the rabid black violence behind "stop and frisk", the violence to communities that mass immigration incurs, the obviously alien nature of Islam, etc.  Because black politics are purely tribal, all that matters is that Trump is not their patron.  Actually, one thing matters more:  that "working class whites" seem to love Trump.  This is how diversity works; the friend of the other tribe is my enemy.  In a zero sum game (which is what tribal politics is) this must be so.

Onto this stunning and brave SNL sketch.  The setup of "Black Jeopardy" is that a black host and two black contestants show off the cluelessness of the lone white contestant, who flubs questions about anything of interest to blacks (stealing, being paranoid about authority, racist white people).  This time the gimmick is that Tom Hanks, dressed up as a Trump voter complete with MAGA hat, turns out to harbor the same suspicion of white people in authority that the black contestants have.



Quote

When Thompson reads a second clue for that category—“They out here saying that every vote counts”—Doug answers again, and again correctly: “What is, come on, they already decided who wins even ’fore it happens.’ ” With each correct answer, Doug gets cheers and applause from Thompson, the black contestants, and the black audience. They all seem to understand the world in similar ways. “I really appreciate you saying that,” says Thompson after Doug praises Tyler Perry’s Madea movies, leading to an awkward moment where Hanks' character recoils in fear as Thompson tries to shake his hand, but then relaxes and accepts the gesture.

(You can already see the liberal distortion field at work.  One of many dunce cap race tropes that liberals promote is whites recoiling in fear irrationally before harmless black folk.)  The irony of this equation is that the media actually derides Trump supporters for their suspicions, while fawning over blacks for theirs (which, as a reminder, include believing that Snapple was designed to make them sterile).

Quote

“All right, well, let’s take a look at our Final Jeopardy category,” announces Thompson, “ ‘Lives That Matter.’ ”

Jones and Zamata turn to look skeptically at Hanks’ character, while Thompson laughs and gives the punchline. “Well, it was good while it lasted, Doug.” To which Hanks says, “I have a lot to say about this.” And then the sketch comes to a close.

Bouie gets excited, like an antsy youth eager to share an improvised poem about his latest muh-dikking.

Quote

Obviously, the answer to the question is “black.” But Doug has “a lot to say about this.” Which suggests that he doesn’t think the answer is that simple. Perhaps he thinks “all lives matter,” or that “blue lives matter,” the phrasing used by those who defend the status quo of policing and criminal justice. Either way, this puts him in direct conflict with the black people he’s befriended. As viewers, we know that “Black Lives Matter” is a movement against police violence, for the essential safety and security of black Americans. It’s a demand for fair and equal treatment as citizens, as opposed to a pervasive assumption of criminality.

Bouie is huffing the fumes of liberal ideological exhaustion.  In fact we know there isn't fair and equal treatment of citizens, because cops are more likely to shoot white suspects, because schools adopt zero tolerance policies to punish white students at the same rate as more violent and disruptive black students, because affirmative action and minority set-asides deliberately privilege incompetent blacks, and because an overwhelming amount of violent crime is perpetrated by blacks.  This is all waved away by liberals every time a strutting black male is told not to niggerwalk in the middle of a street.  In Black Jeopardy terms, what you do in that situation is a) loudly wail about racism, b) make random violent flailing movements, or c) assault a cop.

The intended message is yet more pandering to black narcissism:

Quote

Now, this sketch isn’t some exercise in didacticism. It’s genuinely funny with great performances from everyone involved. But it does make a firm statement about our political world: that racism is a huge obstacle to a kind of class solidarity. And that, as long as real-life Dougs hold on to their identity politics, that obstacle will remain.

Yes, that's right:  shouting "Black Lives Matter" whenever a black person is involved in a shooting is about going beyond identity politics, and voting for the candidate who pledges to help all Americans is actually embracing identity politics.

You can't believe this without being stupid, either born stupid like Jamelle Bouie or made stupid by a different kind of tribalism like Jay Rosen.  It's a complete and total inversion of reality, and Twitter is the perfect venue for this glibness because 140 characters is only enough to assert how "brilliant" and "subtle" something is and not enough for someone else to deconstruct it.  Although we can at least ridicule it in kind:

Posted Image

Ridiculing this racial narcissism and hatred of whites is something that mainstream conservatives refuse to do, much less show its self-serving distortions.  At most they blame the problem on Democratic politicians, as if blacks who seethe with resentment at whites while living off their income are blameless.  But now mainstream conservatism is dying, and we are running out of sympathy and patience.

A tale of two responses:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Here is what I wrote about it on FB:

Quote

The plea to listen to and understand each other is, ironically, one of the most dysfunctional reactions to social conflicts. The very fact of the disorder is an indication that there are significant obstacles to cross-communication and that these are probably longstanding and deeply embedded.

Moreover, the sentiment behind the command will quickly wear off, as it is more or less simply an outburst in response to a surge of negative emotional energy.

Because it is a plea it advertises its own weakness. Still worse, it fails to reflect the perspective of any side of the conflict--which is usually one of the main complaints at hand. "We need to listen to each other" is both ineptly vague and counterproductively provoking to the participants in the conflict.

Imagine if you were injured, and at that moment you were told to listen to and understand your attacker. Most likely you would not respond well. This is exactly the scenario with large social conflict--all sides feel injured, and thus demand that the other sides listen to them and change their behavior.

In their different responses, Trump got this right--he emphasized the complaints of all sides of the conflict, indicating that he's heard them--and Hillary Clinton got it badly wrong. She delivered a lecture on behalf of one party of the conflict and a list of commands for the other parties to follow.

Hillary Clinton's response is sure to escalate the conflict, while Trump's offers the only path to de-escalating it.

In reality it's unlikely that we're about to have a big conversation about the root causes of distrust, alienation, and hostility in large cities, the ability of blacks to function in those environments, and the pathology of SCALE that afflicts police departments and other government agencies.  We will, most likely, argue for awhile about who is really to blame, impotently command people to listen, and then as the emotional energy naturally subsides we'll go back to life as usual, having learned and fixed nothing.

That said, one candidate had a far better response than the other.  Perhaps he has mastered social dynamics in the process of building a large real estate and branding empire, while fathering high-achieving offspring.  Perhaps the other candidate, a notoriously bitter paranoid who appears to have difficult social relationships with everyone around her (except her personal servant, Huma), is showing why she would be an incredibly poor choice for president.

A passage from Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s Antifragile:

Quote

:taleb:  Wealth Without Independence

There is a phenomenon called the treadmill effect, similar to what we saw with neomania [the specific sort of “neomania” Taleb refers to here is in technological adoption -DT]: you need to make more and more to stay in the same place. Greed is antifragile—though not in its victims.

Back to the sucker problem in believing that wealth makes people more independent. We need no more evidence for it than what is taking place now: recall that we have never been richer in the history of mankind. And we have never been more in debt (for the ancients, someone in debt was not free, he was in bondage). So much for “economic growth”.


At the local level, it looks like we get socialized in a certain milieu, hence exposed to a treadmill. You do better, move to Greenwich, Connecticut, then become a pauper next to a twenty–million–dollar mansion and million–dollar birthday parties. And you become more and more dependent on your job, particularly as your neighbors get big tax–sponsored Wall Street bonuses.

The class of persons is like Tantalus, who was subjected to an eternal punishment: he stood in a pool of water underneath a fruit tree and whenever he tried to grab the fruit it moved away and whenever he tried to drink the water receded.

Such a permanently tantalized class is a modern condition. The Romans circumvented these social treadmill effects: much of social life took place between a patron and his less fortunate clients who benefitted from his largesse and ate at his table—and relied on his assistance in times of trouble. There was no welfare at the time, and no church to distribute or recommend charity: everything was private (Seneca’s book De beneficiis... was exactly about which obligations one had in such situations). There was little exposure to the other wealthy biggies, just as mafia dons don’t socialize with other mafia dons but with their constituents. To a large extent, that’s how my grandfather and great–grandfather lived, as they were local landowners and politicians; power was accompanied by a coterie of dependents. Provincial landowners were required to maintain an occasional “open house”, with an open table for people to come help themselves to the fruits of the wealth. Court life, on the other hand, leads to corruption—the nobleman comes from the provinces, where he is now brought down to size’ he faces more flamboyant, wittier persons and feels pressure to prop up his self–esteem. People who have lost their status in the cities conserve it in the provinces.

You cannot possibly trust someone on a treadmill.

Taleb’s treadmill is familiar here, we normally just call it striving. One thing notable about court life which Taleb did not mention (it isn’t particularly relevant to the aims of his book, either) is the fact that court life has an accompanying urge to decadence: Versailles was a hive of mistresses, affairs, liaisons, and probably even anal, as well, and English and Prussian court life was little better. Detached from organic relationships and responsibilities, it’s no surprise that decadent behavior increased (and among the Romans, as patronage was broken down in the late Republic and the leading families became more socially incestuous, decadence increased, as well) for reasons that have been discussed thoroughly in other threads around here.

What’s interesting is that we’ve repeated the court phenomenon in modern America, though we’ve generally missed the analogy. Charles Murray may write a work like Coming Apart, but IIRC he never noticed the historical parallels regarding the court–ification of feudal nobility.

Like any analogy, it isn’t perfect. While former provincial and historical elites provide some portion of the ACELA† class, the large presence of elements alien to the Historic American Nation (not just Jews or Asians, but also more recent arrivals from European nations that were not among the primary sources of the Historic American Nation) makes it a different phenomenon. Court Jews were still, importantly Court Jews, even when raised to the nobility; the combination of full–emancipation and free assimilation (though almost totally only within the Court) is unique to the modern situation.

What Moldbug misleadingly called the Cathedral isn’t really better understood as the Synagogue, but more as a Court. When we see the free movement between high finance, academia, the federal government, and other elite institutions, what we are seeing is the rise of a nobility which is increasingly becoming socially sealed–off from the rest of the country. Around that nobility is a much larger class that aspires to entry, or works for its institutions, and it’s these two classes that form the Court of American power— ACELA elites, the Cathedral, etc.

Taleb identifies this class’s primary moral failing in that it buys its stability—its antifragility in his terms*—by increasing the fragility of other classes. Taleb calls this a lack of “skin in the game” (skin in the game is increased by having organic client relationships, btw), and expends most of his ammunition on the big offenders—economists who failed to predict the ‘08 crash and still get powerful government/business positions, banking executives, etc.—but we can usefully generalize this to the entire class. While immigration and outsourcing problems aren’t a concern of Taleb’s in Antifragile, they’re a clear case of buying antifragility for a small portion of the population at the expense of greater fragility for most of the population— and, more importantly, the system as a whole.

In an argument that’s come up more than once or twice in the shoutbox, Gwerks has asserted against the claims of pretty much the entire rest of the board that the ACELA class does not hate flyover white proles for who they are, but rather the content of their ethical beliefs. A lot of MPC finds this idea too stupid to even be worth engaging much with, but I think it is worth answering, and I’ll try to provide what I think is a pretty fair reading of her position.

Gwerks focuses on this being a question of red tribe vs. blue tribe (which I think is somewhat accurate), but focuses on the strictly political elements of red & blue, which I think are epiphenomenal, and perhaps even more so for members of the Court than those outside of it. For Gwerks, ACELA elites despise white proles because they are envisioned as opposing gay “marriage”, fetus slaughter, and gibs.

Gwerks points out how they will embrace hicks who say otherwise, but such embracing is always patronizing and actual admittance to social contact would require much more extensive change. Generally speaking, for ACELA elites, some redneck mom who posts on Facebook about how she loves her gay son is basically in the same category as a lot of exhibits in the “Hood of Good” thread around here: they’re amusing tokens and they appreciate them signalling the correct beliefs, but they would never want to actually have to interact with those people. Further, on the other side, BB has mentioned how elite conservative Catholics are often tolerated within Court circles and their opposition to abortion is seen as quirky, but not in itself an object of moral horror worthy of social exclusion. (I can personally attest to this somewhat in that I’ve expressed very socially conservative views in venues where it should have resulted, along the Gwerks Theory, in exclusion to avoid moral contagion; and while it has certainly upset people to actually be argued with, it’s rarely actually impacted my social relations and friendships. Why? Despite my anti–preftigious education and flyover background, I’m obviously not a prole.)

Importantly, though, the war between the ACELAs/media elite/Court  and the flyover members of the Majority (in the Wilmot Robertson sense) predates the shibboleths. Abortion did not become a litmus test in the primary Court party until the early 90s. Gay marriage not until a couple years ago. The gibs/black question is a little more difficult, but some dissent on welfare was allowed even through the 90s and, to some extent, think pieces on “what to do about blacks?” are still given some room to exist in Court organs like the NYT. Radical forms of racial signalling are still not required within the Court class, as significant pushback in The Atlantic, NYT, and elsewhere has demonstrated.

Negative media portrayal of the Majority, and especially its lower orders, has been the norm for much, much longer, and thus can serve as a useful proxy for general attitudes in the era before the internet gave people an eye into the social antipathies of alien classes.

But why did this happen?

A typical answer here might be to say “Jews”, or maybe along Kevin MacDonald lines to say Jews were a necessary, but not a sufficient element. However, I’m not certain Jews are particularly important to this story. They have certainly added elements to it (hostility towards Majority proles is a Jewish atavism), and maybe even importantly added the new moral dimension to courtly decadence we see in this incarnation: we now have elaborate verbal edifices created to extol sexual perversion as enlightened and moral, and though we had some presentiment of this in earlier decadent eras, it never reached the level  of general acceptance we have seen this time around. However, my suspicion is that the removal of normal networks of social integration for the ruling class (both by dislocation and social isolation and by importing first members of the elite and then importing an alien lower class for much of ACELA**) is even more important, that perhaps, pace MacDonald it is the Court that is the “necessary, but not sufficient” element (though it’s actually possible that both elements could be defined as such).

Our Court class is tantalized not just because it only has itself to compare to (thus why strivers who will never be naturals within it are considered particularly loathesome), but also because it is cut off from all natural relationships with the lower orders. People no longer have housekeepers or nannies they have organic relationships with (unless, perhaps, they are aliens who are importing lower class aliens from home, as South Asian elites often do), they work to minimize interactions with the lower orders at all times and often are poorly traveled within their own country. (Something I came back to again and again living among ACELAs was how they seemed to only think a vanishingly small percentage of the US was worth seeing, even as they fetishized more exotic travel.) They have no sense of ease within their elite position (unless they are psychologically abnormal or truly, truly born to its heights) because they have no sense of their larger place in society. For rooted elites with client relationships among relatable lower orders, the reality is very different. Even if exposed to other elites who are perhaps cleverer, richer, skinner, and get to spend more time at their vacation home, they are still confident in their status as elites— they know where they exist in a larger network of relationships and have organic contact with persons they have a sense of responsibility towards.

The anxiety created by striving or Taleb’s “treadmill” (which aren’t equivalent, but close enough for our purposes) can be in part assuaged by the creation of an outgroup which can be conveniently looked down upon both to reaffirm membership within the Court among Court members but also to, in Taleb’s words, “prop up their self–esteem”. In fact, the causal chain seems to be more likely exactly the opposite of the one described by Gwerks in which proles are not so much disdained for their clinging to guns & religion as guns & religion are disdained because of their close association with the lifestyle of the non–prestigious portion of the Majority.

Indeed, take the history of the pro–life movement: As pro–life Catholics like to remind Evangelicals, Protestants were latecomers to the pro–life movement; even the Southern Baptist Convention was, around the time of Roe v. Wade, pro–abortion by current standards. Abortion simply didn’t play much of a role in anyone’s moral universe and would have been unuseful for moral signalling. However, the fallout from Roe v. Wade’s top–down imposition of abortion woke up many members of the Majority (especially in the provinces) to an issue they had ignored, or simply held naive beliefs about. Throughout the 80s, opposition to abortion moved from something you could primarily associate with Catholic ethnics (and intellectuals) to something that you could more generally associate with the Court’s dreaded outcaste. The of Bob Casey, Sr. at the 1992 Democratic Convention and the “closing” of the Court’s primary party to the issue came only after it became an Evangelical (code for “wrong type of Majority member”) issue, though anti–Catholicism also played a part (Catholicism has become increasingly identified with the wrong types of whites as well, as downcaste members of the Catholic ethnic groups are displaced as Court clients and assimilated to the Majority in the minds of the Court, if not the Majority as well).

Obviously such a social driver is something impossible to prove: the person who is ideologically–minded will see simply an evolution of liberalism–as–thought, “Cathedral ideology”, liberal morality, etc. I believe that what Newman called “paper logic” is not nearly as important as all that and just like he referred to it in relation to his conversion to Catholicism, the relation is really more like that that the quicksilver in the barometer has to the weather than that of being an actual engine— the ideology of the Court is the record of where it has moved more than it is where it will move. (I also hold that modern moral thinking is not coherent & compelling enough to actually be an engine in this fashion, but that would be a separate subject.)

There are further topics to explore with the Court concept, but this post is already well over two thousand words (and very stream–of–consciousness as it is), so I want to leave with a list of questions for further exploration by myself or others:

• What are other analogies we can find to previous periods of court decadence?
• What drove the selection of the provincial Majority as the outgroup?
• Does the Trump phenomenon bear any meaningful resemblance to other revolts against alienated Court societies?
• What drives the resignation, if not the enthusiasm, for the destruction of their ethnic brothers among Majority members of the Court?
• Did cocooning, social anxiety trickle–down from the Court (or, more specifically, its marginal members) or did we see it rise generally in society with SCALE?
• Does SCALE lead to Courtification?

I don’t think this post is wholly original, but the initial insights did help me connect and rethink previously held ideas, so I hope it has at least some utility in that sense for its readers. I also understand the analogy has a lot of limitations (it has a hard time accommodating the transnational nature of the highest echelons of the court, for example), but obvious imperfections in analogies like this are actually a strength in my book, as they prevent people from taking them too seriously as comprehensive explanations.

Also I wrote this at work, so I apologize for the lack of links.



† Dain says I should explain what I mean by ACELA class: It's become chat speak for East Coast Elites, referring to the ACELA Express rail line which runs from Boston to DC.

* BTW, I find Taleb’s notion of antifragility to be very useful. The word itself may be a bit cute at first, but it does fill a vacant role. Taleb’s point is that the opposite of fragility is not robustness or resilience, but rather things which are able to get stronger via shocks. The robust resists shocks and comes through largely unchanged, the antifragile is that which improves when exposed to sudden events.

** Not to pick on Gwerks too much (really!), but a fairly early exchange I had with her here centered around what I found to be a morally horrifying preference she had for alien service employees. On MPC and in the alt–right at large, there is a tendency to focus on ethnic animus as a driver for population replacement, but cocooning and social isolation also play a critical role. Note that the Court isn’t just replacing whites, but also ethnic whites they have some relationship to, and even more so, American Blacks, their ostensible clients. Fifty years ago, a white NY family might have had an American Black housekeeper, now that is almost unimaginable. You don’t have a natural sense of responsibility or organic relations with aliens— and, for better or worse, American Blacks are actually not wholly alien to us.

In the Golden Age of Trump a new world is dawning, the era of the shitlord.

Posted Image

We now live in a world with legal nightly Tucker beatdowns, where Rand Paul will alpha John McCain between rounds of bullyciding Paul Ryan, where even Ted Cruz can troll yellow trashmag news gawkers into crying uncle. Shitlibs are in retreat, huddling around white flags while cowering before weaponized assault gifs. These aren't just trivial feelgood fluff stories (though they are that too). These stories are urban folk legends to set the new ethos of our times.  (Steve King is a Winner.) The men of this new world are the same men of the old world, but newly-emboldened and ready to fight the left on their own terms.

The left's hold on The Right Side Of History is breaking -- we are the new future and every day births the new narrative of history. The myth of progress can't hold up against real American laughing shitlords and "alt knights" who unapologetically stand for everything the left holds to be evil. ("You're going to be so proud of your country!") The old right believed that the left had won and we just had to ride the decline; with every victory the new right believes that we can and will win. ("Because we're gonna turn it around, and we're gonna start winning again!") When the gay lady reports that under Trump ICE agents are having fun, they aren't just reporting the news; they're memeing into existence the new reality where the rising right crushes its enemies. ("We're gonna win so much, we're gonna win at every level!") The group action of politics is more emotional than logical, and the right is no longer sad and weepy but cool and fun. ("You're gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning!") Everybody loves a winner, and as one success begets another ("We have to keep winning, we have to win more!") the winners accrue more power until they command The Right Side of History. ("We're gonna win so much your head will spin!")

Winning fulfills a primal instinct. That instinct had atrophied under the old right until glum cuckolds expected to lose, enjoyed losing, and wondered why any rightists even tried to win anymore. That age is over; Trump killed it. Now rightists everywhere are tasting victory and learning to enjoy it. To glory in victory is motivation to win again. That maxim goes beyond Trump and will guide all the players and actors of the new age. There will be setbacks and losses, but they won't be felt as inescapable bad breaks by a surging right that fights to win. Each will be a prod to fight harder. That's the difference between winners and losers and why it's so important to nurture our thrill to win.

This thread is for basking in reflected glory, to see our enemies driven before us and to hear the lamentation of their women. This thread is for all those stories that only tangentially relate to some bigger issue but still scream to be shared for the warm glow they give you. This thread is for the urban myths of our developing cult of victory.

To inaugurate this thread, with Spring coming, it's a perfect time to ask: What is Chad doing for spring break?

Spring Breakers chanting “Build That Wall” in Cancun is unacceptable

Shitcanned coon just can't over Cancun "Klan chant":

Quote

During a family show on the high seas, young American spring breakers began to sing the controversial “Build That Wall” chant, which shocked Mexican national tourists and workers.

This is just one of the many blameworthy behaviors that young spring breakers have shown recently in Cancun and that are described as acts of xenophobia and discrimination against Mexicans within their own country :lol:, which is (or should be) totally unacceptable.

It warms my heart now that the boot is on the other foot and lefties get a taste of a vision of the future stamping on their face:

Quote

Several Mexican tourists on board the ship expressed their annoyance, but the Americans did not stop at all and continued singing the racist hymn. :allears:

This situation is far from being an isolated incident, and it adds to the growing number of complaints from tourism sector workers, who point out that in recent days many Spring Breakers have been offensive, rude and haughty towards Mexican people. :allears: :allears: :allears:

We just watched the death of managerial liberalism. I have been saying for at least a year or two that that the Democrats have to get ruined by minorities before the US does. It's just a matter of simple math. And that's what happened.

The fantasy end game of the managerial class was a multi-ethnic global trade empire ruled by them. The problem is, that requires them to win elections, and that's where the problem comes in. See, the problem is that for the foreseeable future, they need the spics & nigs to come out to vote, but they also need a big enough chunk of the white vote to actually win. This is a problem because the dusky hordes don't actually like rich, elderly, pantsuit-wearing white women...but that's who you need to run managerial liberalism.

Not one negro in America believed for a minute that Hillary learned to "whip it" and "nae nae" (whatever the f**k that means, I don't do negro music) for any reason except to pander. They didn't like her, they didn't take her seriously, and they didn't turn out. Meanwhile, white people are coalescing as an ethnic bloc, and they're unsurprisingly not centering their interests on keeping the spic-nic economic cycle funded.

An Obama---a dusky-skinned, rootless, cosmopolitan mulatto raised by a white woman---is a one a billion politician. There's not another Obama.

So the Democrats are between a rock and a hard place. They need a white candidate to get the whites to turn out and to actually manage the machine. But they need an authentically stupid, corrupt negro or Latino to actually get their minority client groups to turn out.

The GOP could still f**k this up, of course. But the Democrats have bet everything on Third World hordes consistently turning out to give Harvard-educated whites and Jews unlimited power, and the dice just came up snake eyes.

I have tried to write this several times over the past week, but it always comes out too saccharine. Seeing as we’re at the 11th hour, however, I’m just gonna roll with it, and hopefully the more chic MPC poasters among us can forgive me the sentimentality. I’m both very excited and very nervous right now, and I’m afraid it’s bleeding into my poasts.

Trump winning the election was always an impossible dream. When I first happened upon MPC in early 2015, I had consigned myself to not voting in US elections ever again. Even at my relatively young age, I was so supremely disillusioned by the multiple back-to-back Current Years of 2012, 2013, and 2014 that I had – like many in this particular political sphere of the Internet – essentially given up on any sort of interaction with the system. What we now refer to as the elite or the establishment seemed to have such absolute power, such wide-encompassing resources, and so many talented if craven people working for it that it all seemed completely hopeless. I was thoroughly blackpilled, having watched shitlibbery march through the universities and institutions unabated, each year adding an even sillier and more detached outrage, increasing the anti-white sentiment as we went from Trayvon to Ferguson. Worse yet, looking to what we now refer to as the cuckservative leadership for some reprieve, there was nothing to be found but clowns and (((jesters))). It was a dark time, friends; the Overton Window (to use a blast from the past) had essentially grown wings. The poz was inescapable.

What struck me about my first visit to MPC was the humor, far funnier than anything I’d encountered in the despair-mines of Unz or the chans or (forgive me) Takimag. To be sure, there was still a perceptible stench of doom about the place, but at least these shitlords were handling it with a sense of style and grace. The discourse was easily 1488x more intelligent than anything I’d ever read on /pol/, and I enjoyed the complete skewering of some of the sillier ideas I’d entertained in moments of weakness (Moldbug). “These guys really get it”, was what I found myself thinking while I lurked, “and they hate naggers, too!” So began my passage across a sea of hurtful words.

Still, even the bleeding-edge visual grammarians of MPC had to let out a virtual groan over the prospects of Election 2016. Here came Jeb! the Empty Man, just a completely worthless sad sack who was obviously incapable of winning the election against The First Vagina Pres, let alone stopping the issue du jour, HUD-sponsored nagger colonizers being deployed onto unsuspecting whyte neighborhoods. I was still having a good time lurking, but even the humor started failing to mask how dire things seemed for non-gay right-leaning white folk in the West in general and America in particular.

And then he appeared.

In an age where a man LARPing as a woman with a penis was being tentatively considered as the hip, new, Cronenberg-esque face of Republicanism, real-estate billionaire and reality TV star Donald John Trump rode a golden elevator onto stage and announced that the Mexicans were doing the raping and it was high time to kick them the f**k out and that he was running for President of the United States of America to do just that. The sheer tonal bitch slap of that first press conference, when The Donald first showed his characteristic insouciance by dropping his brass YUUUGE ones right onto the podium, was the black swan event (apologies to Taleb if this isn’t quite the exact definition) of the Alt-Right generation. The stunned trickle media down whores could barely believe their eyes… and neither could what would become the foot soldiers of the Trump Army. After all these years, and so many false starts, it was finally happening (f****ts).

I mean, if we could just pause for a moment, Donald Trump really should not exist. In an age where Jeb “Bottom of the Barrel” Bush was predetermined to be the completely ineffectual and lackluster “champion of conservatism", in strolled a populist/nationalist with absolutely zero political experience and basically walked up to the biggest baddest nagger (the media), punched it right in the mouth, and declared loudly that anyone who didn’t like it could “Eat s**t, niglet.” In an age when Republicans were cucking for “compassionate conservatism", Donald Trump advocated building an actual border wall between the US and Mexico. And stopping trigger-happy Muslims from coming to our shores. And ending birthright citizenship. He advocated putting America First, and he did so without falling into any of the retarded cuckservative traps of yore, like the unconventional conservatism of talking about GDP growth while your nation transformed into a morass of rootless muds right before your very eyes. Incredible and inconceivable.

To condense a long story that you all know very well, here we find ourselves on the eve of the 2016 Election, with that very same madman in the final showdown versus the old shitdawg herself. This thread is an excellent compendium of all the many twists and turns that we took together getting here, from the early TRiUMPhs in the primaries to the weekly Wikileaks drops. He energized an entire generation of Americans into openly realtalking, into asking why our leaders were such incompetent and malevolent clowns. He destroyed the GOP, a feat for which he will always be owed an insane debt of gratitude, and forced many a (((values))) conservative to out themselves as just another side of the globalist coin. He instilled primal fear in our enemies, flipping the tables on them for once, and caused them to go mad, embracing everything from neo-McCarthyism (“The Russians hacked the FBI!”) to overt demographic dispossession (“Can’t wait ‘til all you whites die out!”). He revealed shiftless and violent muds to be exactly what everyone knew them to be, a far cry from the cuckservative’s Natural Conservative™ label. He did this and so much more, becoming the lone champion of the American People against a tidal wave of character assassinations and snarky takedowns.

I want Donald J. Trump to be my president more than anything I’ve perhaps ever wanted. He is one of history’s Great Men, flawed though he may be. His mere existence is the essence of hope.

Will Trump win? God, I hope so. I know in my heart that he can win, that there are certainly worlds that exist after this Tuesday where President Trump is a reality. The odds are likely no better or worse than a coin toss, which is in and of itself one of the most inspirational stories of our time. I believe that Trump will win in the same way I believed that he would win the primaries even when things looked grim after Iowa. I trust the analysis of WWP, and of the thousands of shitlords who have dedicated their 2016 to analyzing Trump’s chances of being president. Make no mistake: I do not think it will be a Trump landslide. It’s going to be close, and we’ll all be incredibly lucky if Trump eeks it out with a few Electoral Votes to spare. But also make no mistake: it can be done. Trump can win.

If the forces of evil prevail once again and we awake Wednesday to Hillary’s MADAME BUTTERTHGHS, I am going to be f**ked up, full stop. Pman et al. have advised that Trump is likely the opening salvo in a long realignment away from failed s**tlib Current Year policies and I believe him, but the thought of Trump not clinching it is almost too much to bear at this late hour. I love Donald Trump and he seems so unique and the odds are so high that it is nigh on impossible for me to imagine there will ever be anyone like him again. I certainly believe that Trump is the last chance to right the USS Western Civilization by completely democratic means; we are in for a rough next five years no matter who wins, but doubly so if it isn’t Trump.

I also just really, really want Trump to win. I love Trump’s hate of shitlibs, and he’s brought us so far.

In closing, the only vote I’ve ever cast before for president was begrudgingly for John McCain in 2008, God forgive me. To contrast, right now as I type this, I am decked out in Trump gear, have written a small novel about my love for Trump, have donated a respectable amount of money to the Trump campaign, and am completely energized to vote for Trump. Trump has made me believe in America again, that maybe things aren’t completely f**ked after all. When I think back to my first days on MPC and compare them to now, I cannot believe how far we’ve come, and we owe nearly all of that to this one man, Donald Trump.

I want to live under a President Trump more than I can really rightly describe. It seems almost surreal that such a wish could very well be a reality in short order. Trump truly is an exceptional man on every level, and the only one I trust to Make America Great Again!

Preaching to the choir here, but please don’t forget to vote, friends. Trump has done so very much for us, and it is now time for us to repay him in kind. God be with us and The Donald now. Trump winning the presidency was always an impossible dream, and yet here we are. Let’s finish the job.

Posted Cinco Jotas on 14 May 2016 - 02:27 AM

Pay attention 4th Generation Warfighters, Der Trumpenfüher is giving a lesson in asymmetrical warfare, one based on the model of the Iranian Speedboats vs the 5th Fleet.

The action begins when Admiral Bezos orders a fleet of twenty WaPo reporters to sink the USS Trump at all costs. All of the reporters are state-of-the art and battle-tested: built in Ivy-league shipyards at enormous cost, and armed with heavy, mark II Watergate torpedoes.

But, just as this mighty fleet gets underway, it's overwhelmed by a fast-moving swarm of taco bowls, women's cards, racist butlers, phantom publicists, and a thousand other outlandish and picayune controversies, each one crazier and stupider than the last, all of them things that no one could have imagined in a million years of reading Woodward and Bernstein. Worse, like the Iranian speedboats, each one of these "controversies" has to be addressed (a thousand-word think piece on Taco-Bowl-Gate! An op-ed on racist butlers!) because if one slips by without being mentioned, then the leftist twitterati will howl in indignation and Hilary's toadies will mutter threateningly about editors that Feel the Bern.

And if that's not enough, while the fleet is foundering at the mouth of the harbor, the Trump steams into the middle of the ruck and fires it's big guns at the Bezos, scoring a direct hit, and threatening to sink the flagship with a Trust-Buster if it does not retreat from action.

The ultimate result is that the press is tangled up in a hairball of enormous proportions, and exhausts itself and the patience of the American people months before the election takes place. And Trump controls all of this wIth a couple of social media accounts, Morning Joe's telephone number and Roger Stone's merry prankster commando squad.

It's genius and smart shitlords better be going to school on it

#376006 Free Speech Absolutism

Posted Money Vampire on 20 August 2017 - 03:35 AM

To quote PMAN from the shout box, “This has been a bad week for anyone who is a free speech absolutist.”

We’ve already had about six million poasts about why Unite the Right was a total s**t show that shouldn’t have happened, no need for me to recap that here. The thing that really bothered me about that whole affair was how only one of our elected leaders had the balls to say the uncomfortable truth about that rally. That UTR had the Constitutional Right to be there to hold their goofy speeches and march with their larpy Tiki torches. Only President Trump had the guts to remind the looney-left that the First Amendment applies to unpopular speech too. It may be fair to say that at this point in time the words Free Speech are code for Pro-Trump.

Since then we’ve been witness to an unprecedented effort to silence the dissident Right on the internet. The Cannery in the coal mine, Andrew Anglin’s The Daily Stormer, has been removed from the regular internet. Even the Darknet, that infamous home of murder-for-hire and CP, has cooperated with this censorship and found that Anglins’s rude (and 100% legal under US law) language was too extreme for them.

I had to copy/paste these quotes written by Anglin during the brief window of time in which the site was up. https://dailystormer...e-in-stormtown/

Quote

For those that don’t get the technical side here: what has happened is that critical infrastructure platforms have shut me down. The domain’s registration, which was initially on Godaddy and then on Google – is supposed to be entirely neutral. They have never shut anyone down for content.
Then, Cloudflare shut me down. I wrote an entire article about that. That is critical infrastructure which makes it so any random asshole can’t rent a botnet and shut the site down, so effectively they shut the site down.
This is the first site they have ever shut down without an order from a US court.

Because this isn’t about arguments anymore. This is about the fact that if I didn’t have weev as this site’s volunteer sysop, I would be completely silenced right now. I would be incapable of speaking publicly (other than on Gab).
The fact that these people are now openly exercising their ability to do this to a person because of something they say has changed the world.
This is the core idea of the internet being attacked.

Making matters even worse for the cause of protecting the First Amendment, a Free Speech Rally took place in Boston yesterday and they were completely overrun by an anti-free speech mob. News sites were reporting the numbers as 300 versus 10,000 - 15,000. The events of the past week make it clear that the right to hold non-leftist political assemblies and the right to share hurtful opinions on the internet are rights we are no longer allowed to have.

Rational minds have said that holding rallies and political assemblies isn’t a good idea, that such things are where the power of the Left is greatest. And they say we should instead play to our strengths by poasting memes on the internet. Those rational minds are correct.

Cunning men will tell us that any dissidents who go to a Free Speech Rally will certainly be outnumbered, beaten up and stabbed by Antifa. Then to add insult to injury, the media will lie about it. The gains could never outweigh the loses, they’d say. These cunning men are correct.

Wise men will say that only fools would place their delicate, irreplaceable bodies in the path of clubs and blades for the sake of something as intangible as Rights. They would smugly say, “If your enemies wanted free speech to remain a right for all Americans, including themselves, then they wouldn’t be stabbing you right now.” The wise men are correct.

Considering the above, I count myself as fortunate to be neither rational, nor cunning, nor wise. For I have once before and will again experience bliss the like of which these kinds of men never will. The kind of bliss that only comes from staring down a horde of drugged, brainwashed commies and shouting at them the three words

:eatshitniglet:

Two Free Speech Rallies are coming up next weekend in the Bay Area. The first is on Saturday the 26th at Crissy Field in San Francisco. The second is on Sunday the 27th in Berkeley at the MLK civic park. I will be attending both of them. It’s going to be a fun weekend.

Imagine being James Comey: a solid gold career, double major in chemistry and religion at William and Mary, a "brilliant" student at the University of Chicago Law School,  stint at an A-list firm, fast rise through the DoJ to become Deputy AG,  General Counsel at Lockheed Martin, then off to a hedge fund for the cash, mentioned as a possible SCOTUS, finally picked by Obama to head the FBI.  This paragon of the American legal profession, 35 years of bipartisan bugman lolyer striving at the highest level, rising to the very pinnacle of the meritocracy of SCALE,  all of it gone in an instant, like tears in the rain.  Laid low by a stupid reality TV star with a coarse Queens accent.

Had the Muslims won at Poitiers, the Arabian fleet might have sailed without a naval combat into the mouth of the Thames. Perhaps the interpretation of the Koran would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and her pulpits might demonstrate to a circumcised people the sanctity and truth of the revelation of Mahomet.

#247015 Culturally Appropriating the Frankfurt School

  • 80

Posted Chicano Studies Major on 07 February 2016 - 06:39 PM

Whoever ventures into the realm of the alt-right is bound to encounter the term "Frankfurt School" sooner or later. If one group is perceived by the alt-right as the single most important culprit for our current societal malaise, it would be this band of (((intellectuals))):

Posted Image

In the broadest possible terms, the Frankfurt School (named after the Institute for Social Research at Frankfurt's Goethe University, where the movement more or less originated) was a loose association of Marxists who, like Marx, believed in the general desirability of overcoming capitalism and establishing a society liberated from its more harmful iniquities, but unlike Marx, did not believe this development to be historically inevitable. To the contrary, they asserted that capitalism had infected the cultural sphere to such an extent that its self-perpetuating memes would essentially guarantee its survival ad infinitum, and that its structures of oppression would have to be discovered and deconstructed in critical social discourses for positive change to become an option. That's why their ideology is also referred to as "cultural Marxism".

It's easy to recognize from this description how contemporary peddlers of poz are massively influenced by the Frankfurt School's methodology, but you can't blame the testator for the actions of his heirs. SJWs are as revolutionary as manufacturers of Che t-shirts; they have made peace with the system at large and are using the rhetoric of fundamental opposition as cheat codes to unlock sinecures for themselves, which makes them and their politics so utterly despicable.

Nonetheless, as the struggle for the displacement of Europeans all over the world continues apace and as "scientific" criticism of whiteness leads to the emergence of formal and informal structures of oppression against European man in particular, the original writings of the Frankfurt School become strangely relevant to our cause. They did, after all, develop critical discourses to dismantle existing power structures, and it's fairly obvious that the streams of power in the age of poz are not exactly flowing in our direction.

I'd like to illustrate this contention with a few examples, starting with Herbert Marcuse and his concept of repressive desublimation, which he explains in his book One-Dimensional Man:

Quote

In this chapter, certain key notions and images of literature and their fate will illustrate how the progress of technological rationality is liquidating the oppositional and transcending elements in the "higher culture." They succumb in fact to the process of desublimation which prevails in the advanced regions of contemporary society. [...]

Man today can do more than the culture heros and half-gods; he has solved many insoluble problems. But he has also betrayed the hope and destroyed the truth which were preserved in the sublimations of higher culture. [...]

Today's novel feature is the flattening out of the antagonism between culture and social reality through the obliteration of the oppositional, alien, and transcendent elements in the higher culture by virtue of which it constituted another dimension of reality. This liquidation of two-dimensional culture takes place not through the denial and rejection of the "cultural values," but through their wholesale incorporation into the established order, through their reproduction and display on a massive scale.

Marcuse's claim here is that in pre-modern times, certain elements of cultural life existed out of reach of the system from which they originated. They were sublime. He's thinking about art and literature in particular. Artists could create fictional elements that, through their sheer existence, invalidated the oppressive logic of the system that spawned them; they were not integrated, existed outside the bounds of acceptable discourse and hence provided an inspiration for a world that might become, a world not tainted by the shortcomings of social reality. This is quite a culture-of-critique-y take on literature, but we'll run with it.

Quote

And in the literature, this other dimension is represented not by the religious, spiritual, moral heroes (who often sustain the established order) but rather by such disruptive characters as the artist, the prostitute, the adulteress, the great criminal and outcast, the warrior, the rebel-poet, the devil, the fool-those who don't earn a living, at least not in an orderly and normal way.

To be sure, these characters have not disappeared from the literature of advanced industrial society, but they survive essentially transformed. The vamp, the national hero, the beatnik, the neurotic housewife, the gangster, the star, the charismatic tycoon perform a function very different from and even contrary to that of their cultural predecessors. They are no longer images of another way of life but rather freaks or types of the same life, serving as an affirmation rather than negation of the established order.

Nowadays, the culture industry still produces anti-heroes, but they all exist within the bounds of the larger social consensus. Marcuse's examples are quite 1960-ish, so let's use a more recent type: the ghetto banger, a favorite trope of rappers the world over. Yes, he breaks the law, but in a pursuit of material satisfaction that couldn't be more kosher as a goal. The utopia of a banger is filled with expensive status symbols. Despite all the talk about rap music being the artistic vehicle of the disenfranchised, there’s nothing oppositional or subversive about it. It is desublimated and perpetuates the narrative of the powers that be, albeit with a different window dressing.

This observation extends to much of the cultural liberation the left has so proudly fought for in the last decades:

Quote

Artistic alienation is sublimation. It creates the images of conditions which are irreconcilable with the established Reality Principle but which, as cultural images, become tolerable, even edifying and useful. [...]

The Pleasure Principle absorbs the Reality Principle; sexuality is liberated (or rather liberalized) in socially constructive forms. This notion implies that there are repressive modes of desublimation, compared with which the sublimated drives and objectives contain more deviation, more freedom, and more refusal to heed the social taboos. It appears that such repressive desublimation is indeed operative in the sexual sphere, and here, as in the desublimation of higher culture, it operates as the by-product of the social controls of technological reality, which extend liberty while intensifying domination. [...]

Institutionalized desublimation thus appears to be an aspect of the "conquest of transcendence" achieved by the one-dimensional society. Just as this society tends to reduce, and even absorb opposition (the qualitative difference!) in the realm of politics and higher culture, so it does in the instinctual sphere. The result is the atrophy of the mental organs for grasping the contradictions and the alternatives and, in the one remaining dimension of technological rationality, the Happy Consciousness comes to prevail.

To a dissident rightist, these insights are important in two ways. The seemingly unstoppable march of poz we've been witnessing in recent years was certainly catalyzed by self-interested pressure groups, but there's also a systemic logic behind it that, in Marxist terms, made its rise almost inevitable.

The slut walker, the gender freak, the pride marcher - they're all participating in a discourse of individual autonomy that is about as safe and mainstream as it gets, and the managerial class is happy to integrate their masturbatory concerns into the larger social consensus. Their success was hindered by vestiges of moral paradigms that predate our modern logic, but in hindsight those battles had always been fought from a losing position. Piety had been losing ground to desublimated self-actualization for a long time, with gay marriage's and autogynephilia's mainstreaming being a question of when and not if.

Thus, when we condemn cuckservatives for being cucks, we're not just passing an aesthetic judgment. We're facing the reality that a community-oriented mode of social organization cannot survive as a quaint relic in an otherwise uprooted universe and that those who claim otherwise out of greed or cowardice are in denial of this reality, have "false consciousness", and will ultimately lose their heritage to forces which they believe to control, but which are actually controlling them and their fate. Even without a black bull at hand, they're being existentially cucked and should be made aware of it.

A second consideration is more pertinent to our own cause. LARPing is repressive desublimation. Esoteric Hitlerism and techno-aristocracy are consumer brands meant to channel our righteous frustration into lifestyle products. If, at the end of the day, your edginess only serves to satisfy your own vanity, you're like "the beatnik, the neurotic housewife, the gangster, the star" - manufactured opposition with a commodified identity. Do not fall into this trap. The loyal husband or faithful wife who genuinely believe in something that transcends quarterly earnings and raise a family in this humble spirit are greater foes to the forces of destruction than a loud and self-absorbed caricature.

So much for our rather abstract relationship with Marcuse. More concrete proof of Frankfurt School crimethink comes from Theodor Adorno (center right in the above picture). Adorno, in his 1951 opus Minima Moralia, actually foresaw both the totalitarian nature of racial egalitarianism and the profit motive that stood behind it. This supposed communist would have gotten a double Richwine treatment if he'd published his insights in our time:

Quote

If one wished to proclaim the equality of all those who bear human features as an ideal, instead of establishing it as a fact, this would be of little help. The abstract utopia would be all too easily reconcilable with the most devious tendencies of society. That all human beings would resemble each other, is exactly what suits this latter. It regards factual or imagined differences as marks of shame, which reveal, that one has not brought things far enough; that something somewhere has been left free of the machine, is not totally determined by the totality.[...]

This is exactly the dynamic we're seeing today. Blacks do worse than whites in segregated schools? We must integrate. They still do worse? We must take affirmative action. Still not working? We must educate about structural racism. Still nothing? Then whites must be carrying an invisible knapsack of privilege that gives them unfair advantages. Now any measure to rectify this situation seems appropriate. Failure to achieve equality just means we have to try again and harder this time.

Of course, what Adorno as a generic anti-totalitarian couldn't predict was the consciously anti-white bent this egalitarianism would take. Nowadays, factual differences are marks of shame if they apply to white people, but praiseworthy heritage if they can be attributed to any other group.

Quote

An emancipated society however would be no unitary state, but the realization of the generality in the reconciliation of differences. A politics which took this seriously should therefore not propagate even the idea of the abstract equality of human beings. They should rather point to the bad equality of today, the identity of film interests with weapons interests, and think of the better condition as the one in which one could be different without fear.

Yes, you read that right: a Frankfurt School patriarch stopping just short of calling for "separate but equal" because he's a little concerned about the "equal" part.

His second statement is even more important and describes a fundamental problem of our contemporary left wing: instead of worrying about these synthetic conceptions of equality, why don't they pick the low-hanging fruit and agitate against the ridiculously oppressive axis of propaganda, arms and capital? Our foremost left-wing scholars are so busy deconstructing white privilege that they've completely stopped caring about the injustices of neoconservative foreign policy, especially since the promotion of gay rights has become part of that policy deal.

Quote

The “melting pot” was an institution of free-wheeling industrial capitalism. The thought of landing in it conjures up martyrdom, not democracy.

Preach it, brother. Preach it to the diversity consultants who are making a fortune out of obscuring this exploitative relationship.

Even though we've collected enough problematic ideas to flood several safe spaces with, we'll take one more. The Frankfurt School also had a problem with SCIENCE! and the blind trust that accumulating knowledge without any kind of overarching spiritual framework would lead us ever closer to utopia simply by virtue of being progress. This was the domain of Max Horkheimer (center left in the above picture). John Abromeit has aptly summarized Horkheimer's thought in his book Max Horkheimer and the Foundations of the Frankfurt School:

Quote

[...] after the revolutions of 1848, the continental bourgeoisie took a decidedly conservative turn, which manifested itself philosophically in two main ways, according to Horkheimer. First, it abandoned of the universal regulative ideals that had guided it during its heroic phase. The positivist attack on metaphysics was directed not only against religious concepts such as God or the eternal soul, but against transcendent ideals of any type, even progressive ones such as universal rights, human dignity or a just society. Second, it entailed a corresponding loss of self-reflexivity. [...]

The positivists believed they could dispense with abstract universals and self-reflexivity because they were convinced that scientific rationality and its concrete application would lead not only to ever-increasing control of nature, but also to constant improvement of the conditions of human life. They believed, as one of the early defenders of modern positivism, Saint-Simon, put it, "the state of affairs which is most favorable to industry is ... the most favorable to society," and that, therefore, science should be primarily the "science of production."

This is more or less still the view of those who have replaced religion with a metaphysical belief in science: that value-free scientific inquiry into material improvement is the best and only guide to continuous social progress, and that an unspoken utilitarianism behind this scientific effort is the rational mode of organizing society.

It is, in a way, an ultra-conservative view that would like to freeze existing power structures and just add a few more gadgets as time goes on. In the 19th century, that would've meant obscene wealth for a few and crushing poverty for the masses, sweetened by the occasional mass-produced invention. Today, it means secular liberalism, open borders and bowling alone, sweetened by the occasional mass-produced invention.

Since this state of affairs is clearly a raw deal for the majority, a similar situation unfolded in both the distant and recent past:

Quote

When it became increasingly apparent that bourgeois society would not automatically realize this promise of creating a more just and humane society - that the interests of large industry and its bourgeois proprietors might not be identical with the interests of society as a whole - philosophy was called on to justify the aims of science. [...]

In what can certainly be seen as an anticipation of one of the central arguments from Dialectic of Enlightenment, Horkheimer demonstrates how the positivist hypostatization of a truncated version of Enlightenment reason terminated in the recrudescence of metaphysics and myth.

Once again, scientific work is being interlaced with unfounded ideology to a point where the two are hardly separable. This is where purple-haired assistant professors writing papers about the insecure masculinity of quantum physics come into play. Science itself facilitates, but cannot justify the atomized liberalism of our time, so it needs help from intellectual bullies who will do that, just like 19th century science needed help from bourgeois philosophers to justify the existing social order.

A "recrudescence of metaphysics and myth" is when the college-aged children of black millionaires evoke their African ancestors and sing chants about black bodies to justify whatever it is they think they deserve. The current state of the academy promotes this kind of behavior because science as a social category is increasingly reliant on extra-rational behavior to justify its oversized position within society. If the masses don't perceive science as an engine of material progress anymore (if only because a skewed distribution of wealth is leaving them poorer by the day), then they must at least see it as an engine of political progress, even if that leaves science ill-equipped to deal with actual scientific problems.

And that is why, according to Horkheimer, science doesn't exist outside the social relations it examines and why the worship of scientific neutrality is ultimately pointless. That is why SCIENCE! acolytes have no choice but to become increasingly pozzed to the point of scientific absurdity and why questions of social organization cannot be answered by merely "looking at the data".

---

In conclusion, we discovered that the patron saints of the left considered sexual liberalism a pacification strategy for the masses, racial equality a ghoulish form of totalitarianism, diversity a nauseating invention of the oligarchy and science worship a self-defeating exercise in circular reasoning.

What of the left's grand edifice is still standing after the scathing critique of cultural Marxism has blown over it? Ruins, if they're lucky, and it didn't take a single shitlord to do it. Just a bunch of innocuous Jewish intellectuals. Oy vey!

President Donald Trump recently dismissed some of his senior staff as globalists and demanded that someone draw up a plan for tariffs that would affect China, Axios reported Sunday evening.
Citing multiple sources with knowledge of the meeting — and noting that the White House had not disputed the accounts —the outlet reported that Trump had issued the demand during an Oval Office meeting with top advisors.
"So, John, I want you to know, this is my view. I want tariffs. And I want someone to bring me some tariffs," Axios quotes the president as saying to John Kelly, his chief of staff.

Trump then reportedly ended his meeting by saying: "I know there are some people in the room right now that are upset. I know there are some globalists in the room right now. And they don't want them, John, they don't want the tariffs. But I'm telling you, I want tariffs."

Every day, I grow to admire ARE PRESIDENT more. God damn any snide cunt who questions his convictions.
