The orange becomes more rotten with every passing day.
Trump praises Antifa and other urine bottle-throwing thugs for standing up against “bigotry and hate.”
“I want to applaud the many protesters in Boston who are speaking out against bigotry and hate. Our country will soon come together as one!”
At what point will the Alt Right stop the “4D chess” narratives and admit that Trump’s campaign was his greatest performance yet?
Read this story. Some news outlets referred to the victim as an “innocent man.” In other words, he is not a “neo-Nazi,” but if he was, then, oh boy, he would have deserved to have been randomly stabbed while getting out of his car. I guess this all somehow supports pathologically insane ramblings in The Atlantic about how the Alt Right is so very powerful and all.
Truth to power. Actually, lies and repression from power.
I don’t want to beat a dead horse but people are looking at the Unite the Right aftermath in a very short-sighted manner. They are all considering the event itself, but ignoring the larger context behind it – that the “movement” is so very ill-prepared to take advantage of today’s propitious circumstances, and that after many decades of activism by so many people, and after so many millions of dollars of donations and “membership dues” poured into “movement” coffers. And so we now reach a point of consummate weakness and humiliation, where “innocent” men are stabbed just because they have an “undercut.”
This is in large part due to the “movement’s” Der Tag mentality – that “Armageddon” is just around the corner, so why engage in any long-term planning and organization-building? Just head out to dem dere woods with your trusty rifle and pemmican and get ready for “the revolution.”
I remember that one “movement” quota queen was ranting in the early 2000s – and here I paraphrase from memory – that “I don’t understand why any White folks, particularly racial activists, are worrying about saving for retirement, their pensions, college tuition, or having money in their bank accounts. Don’t they know that the system is definitely going to collapse within ten years, most likely within five years?”
Yeah…that was fifteen years ago, more or less. And the “movement” has been saying things like that for – what? – the last 50 years or so?
Maybe it is just small sample sizes or that the “movement” selects for specific types of people, but I’ve noticed that how activists actually behave is completely opposite of what one would predict based on ethnic stereotypes.
Those individuals who are supposed to be prudent, disciplined, disinterested, far-sighted, strategic, long time preference, organized, etc. are the ones who don’t see past their noses, engage in hasty actions with little to no planning, have short time preferences that eschew thinking in terms of decades, engage in hysterical hero-worship and wishful thinking, are constantly pan-handling in the most shameful fashion (some using their own small children as money-raising props), have no organizational security, never learn from mistakes, and are angrily allergic to any criticism. On the other hand, those who one would expect to be corrupt, short time preference, high-anxiety, neurotic, undisciplined, short-sighted, gesticulating morons are the ones counseling prudence, long-term planning and infrastructure-building, strategic organization, operational security. and critical of shameless “movement” pan-handling and womanly hero-worship.
Again, this may be a sample size and/or selection bias issue, but it has been a consistent pattern over a long period of time.
