A brief update.
Read here. Excerpts and comments:
It is one thing to deplatform a blogger or YouTuber. It is one thing to engage in lawfare against cosplayers and their enablers in Charlottesville. It is one thing to label powerless “movement leaders “as “national security threats.” It is one thing to push “hate crime and speech laws” against the atomized Internet lumpenproletariat.But it is another thing entirely to publicly engage in overt banana republic tactics to shut down political campaigns, persecute political opponents, and censor political candidates. Yes, America is far down the road to leftist victory, yes the System is corrupt and anti-White and degenerate and illegitimate, and yes Whites usually take abuse unlimited without reacting and fighting back. Yes, that is all true. But, still…there are limits to all of that, even now. There are limits to how far the System will go at this time. And I believe those limits fall just short of the System completely unmasking itself, it falls just short of overtly shutting down the political opposition.
That was written before the insanity of 2020. Yes, there is still truth there, although the situation has obviously progressed rapidly. As I am fond of saying, the lessons of the schoolyard apply to political and social issues. Bullies will simply escalate their bullying if they discover that their victims will not fight back. In 2020, the Left discovered that the Right, Trump, America, and White Americans are all paper tigers. They never fight back. Never. Ever. (So far – will that change?). The bullies poked and prodded, got no response, and have now gone hog wild.
Yes, there will be ridicule. Yes, there will be unfair media coverage and smears. Yes, if things are going too well, then they’ll try a media blackout and ignore us. Yes, the System will allow their Antifa hired hands run wild with impunity. But all these things are happening now, are happening already (under the Far-Left God Emperor), so that’s nothing new. If the “movement” is concerned with increased official persecution, then it may be prudent to shift at least some of the activist efforts into an arena in which the System will incur real costs – very serious costs indeed – if they try to censor and directly interfere. And that arena is the political arena – the arena that Joe and Jill Sixpack consider sacrosanct in their faded vision of what America used to be.
This is a major point. We are headed to a situation – particularly if Trump loses, but even now, today, and even if the useless lump of lard Trump wins – in which participation in electoral politics may be the only major mechanism for widespread dissemination of Far Right views…and maybe even that may not be possible (but it seems to be the last frontier).
If the System wants to shut down White advocacy, then make it as difficult and as painful and as potentially self-destructive for them as possible.
This is a crucially important point. When involved in a struggle with an opponent – politics, war, even sports – you must always push the opponent, you must make them prove that they can handle your current strategy. You must make them prove that they have an effective response to your latest approach. In baseball, if a batter cannot hit a curveball, then he’ll get a steady diet of curveballs, make out time and again, until he proves that he has learned to hit that pitch or until he’s run out of baseball because of his inadequacy. If a nation in wartime proves vulnerable to enemy airpower, then they’ll be hit from the air time and again, until they learn to fight back or until they are defeated. In politics, if one side is unable or unwilling to effectively counter a certain approach of their opponent, then that opponent should seize the opportunity as it exists and continue to use that approach until such time that the other side proves capable of effectively dealing with it or is completely defeated.
Force them into the position in which the only way to shut down White advocacy is to engage in blatant and public banana republic third world authoritarianism, force them to either accept White advocacy in the political arena or risk unmasking themselves to White America several decades too early.
Well, true, they’ve been unmasking themselves very well in 2020, and so far getting away with it, but they haven’t yet gone so far as to prove willing and able to deal with a general, full-scale political approach. That time may come soon, but they need to prove it.
The riposte would be – but, political candidates can be persecuted.
The riposte may be that even Trump – the President of the United States! – is censored by social media, and made to cower in a White House bunker by the screaming mob
Two points on that last riposte:
First, Trump is a historically weak President. One cannot imagine ANY previous President, not even the most weak and mediocre, displaying the craven and spineless behavior of Donald Trump. Can one imagine a President that allows himself to be censored? A President who wouldn’t call in the military to sweep the streets of DC instead of trembling like a pathetic coward in a White House bunker? Can you imagine a President who would do nothing as violent protestors prevent his own supporters from having access to one of his rallies? Trump is an unusual case – Trump is one of the weakest, most useless, most inert, most cowardly men (much less leader) in human history. One cannot effectively judge an approach based on the example of such a defectively and cowardly inept individual as Trump.
Second, everything that has been going on, including the censoring and intimidation of the President of the United States and his supporters, has let the concept of the sociopolitical disintegration of the United States leak into the mainstream (*). Now, as stated above, Trump is a special case, as he is the (obese) equivalent of the 98-pound weakling getting sand kicked in his face at the beach. Having someone so incredibly weak and cowardly in charge invites the abuse he suffers. However, one can imagine political candidates and elected officials made of sterner stuff having equivalent tactics used against them and their supporters – at that point, we would be far, far down the road of Banana Republicanism. What if there was a President whose default position to every crisis was NOT backing down and surrendering? What if there were political candidates who spoke up aggressively about censorship and mob violence? What if the 98-pound weakling took the Charles Atlas course and fought back?
So, yes, the Left/System may respond to the electoral politics challenge in like manner as they are behaving today – completely unhinged and deranged, blissfully unconcerned that they are completely undermining the legitimacy of their system and of so-called “democratic procedures.” Joe and Jill Sixpack still believe they can vote themselves out of the mess they find themselves in. That continued belief is actually to the Left’s advantage. If they wish to shatter that belief, so be it.
And what if we have candidates and officials who actually stand up for themselves? And what if those individuals are associated with explicitly White politics? Will the Left escalate to the point that democratic legitimacy of the American political system completely disintegrates? Or will explicitly White politics gain mainstream legitimacy? It will have to be one or the other, most likely the former. Given a choice between (a) the status quo in which Whites believe they have discharged their civic duties to a legitimate system by voting for a weak and cowardly buffoon or (b) the complete collapse of System legitimacy and the discrediting of the American political system – which is better for us?
The Left cannot be let to have their own way without any challenge whatsoever. They need to be made to make a choice between having the Far Right as an established and normalized voice in electoral politics or wrecking what little is left of System legitimacy and shattering the naïve fantasies of White Americans that the corpse of a nation they live in is anything other than a third-rate banana republic. Of course, this requires that arguments in favor or legitimacy and the rule of law can be publicly made….but that brings up a host of other issues (that are related to the decades of “movement” failure). This post addresses the political issue, and the point has been made.
We need electoral politics featuring candidates who are, unlike Trump, men and not quivering blobs of cowardly jelly, and then we’ll see what the next step in the disintegration of America entails.
If the Quota Queens think “business as usual” – blogging and tin cup panhandling – is going to get the job done in the coming times, they are, as usual, sadly mistaken.
*This is why Far Right critics of Tucker Carlson are misguided – and here I mean critics of him as a commentator rather than criticisms of specific things he might say (the latter are justified and the former is not). He serves a valuable role of informing the mass of right-of-center White Americans how bad things are getting, how the America they thought they lived in and loved is dying (or already dead), and how we are slowly slipping toward a state of low level insurgency. This is a valuable contribution, which is why the usual suspects want him silenced.
