What Liberalism Means to Me

Our critics say that we, Liberals, don't know what we stand for... that we only know what we stand against... and I think they may be right.

Liberalism is commonly described as a political and moral philosophy based on liberty and equality. But, because there is no common agreement about what concepts like liberty and equality should mean, this description tends to create confusion about what liberals actually stand for.

For example: Many understand the “liberty” of liberalism to mean that we think people should be free to do whatever they want. Because of this, we are often blamed for really stupid ideas that I think have nothing to do with liberalism, and worse, ones that actually conflict with liberal values. Such as, the idea that parents should be allowed to give their children sex change operations; and … really gross notions that I can’t bring myself to write out loud.

I think that this type of unrestrained “liberty” is better attributed to ideologies that believe in unrestricted societies… ideologies like anarchism or libertarianism. Especially since liberalism actually does advocate for societal restrictions. In particular, we favor rules that prevent people from taking advantage of those in weaker positions.

Liberals are so fond of such rules that some are under the impression that we would like to (or should) abolish politically incorrect speech for the sake of “coddling” (or protecting) society. But I think that those who run around trying to shut down offensive or hateful speech should stop calling themselves liberals, because freedom of speech is a core liberal principle. In my opinion, the only liberal way to defend against what we think are bad ideas is to counter them with what we think are better ones.

Besides… the politically incorrect “Free Speech Movement” is all about framing societal pressure against habits of inequality as if it was a nefarious conspiracy to promote conformity. While liberalism certainly does take up issues against inequality, we must not help them frame the “equality” of liberalism to mean that we want everyone to think, behave, and be the same. We must not forget that liberalism, in all its various forms and throughout its history, draws the conclusion that no one is truly free if we are not allowed to be individuals.

I think it is difficult to fully understand what liberals stand for, without also considering what we stand against. We stand for individual liberty, but not at the expense of others. We stand for equality, but not at the expense of individuality. Ultimately, we stand against oppression.

With this in mind, liberalism would be better described as a political philosophy that focuses on matters of individual liberty, based on the political theory that freedom cannot thrive in systems of inequality, and that it should be practiced with the moral imperative of overcoming master-slave dichotomies.

All the King’s Men, Part II (Operation Red Castle)

While #QAnon creators try to separate themselves from the online active measures Op, "The Plan" they hatched to install a military Junta continues to unfold IRL.

Reposted from Twitter (with section added about “The Plan”).

WH, DHS, and Pentagon lawyers meet to figure out if/how Trump can declare a national emergency to divert resources and manpower from the military to build his stupid wall.

Lawyers discussing details of using national emergency to build wall “It’s always been an option,” said an official. “Now that things are getting worse, we are looking at how that could be operationalized.”

The article above states that they feel such measures are necessary since the border problem has worsened. However, actual number of illegal crossings suggest the situation has not only not worsened, but has improved since 2016. So what’s the real reason for this “national emergency”?

Clock activated.RED_CASTLE.GREEN_CASTLE.Stage_5:5[y].Q
This whole thing is making the #QAnon Qult break dance. Specifically, they are cheering on the prospect of Trump declaring martial law to build the wall… just like Q said he would. Here’s Jerome Corsi, “decoding” Q’s message, revealing critical stages of “The Plan”. He deleted the original, but a fan saved and reposted part of it:

 

Summary: Trump hid funding for the wall in the defense spending omnibus and intends to have the wall built by the military, who he will engage by declaring martial law… and while he’s at it, he will use martial law to command military tribunals and summary executions of the Cabal.

At the risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, I’ve been warning people about this for a while. The #QAnon thing is not a LARP. It’s an active measures Op meant to garner support for a military Junta, and to provoke uprising… and I am certain that Trump is actually behind the whole thing. If you haven’t already read my previous post about #QAnon, please do so now… and please watch the last video posted on that entry, in which Jerome CORSI explains why martial law is required for TRUMP to be able to prosecute the alleged Cabal.

“The Plan” aka “Operation Red Castle”

I am not an investigative reporter… I have a 24/7 career that prevents me from dedicating enough time to expose all of this in a more detailed fashion, but… here is a summary of “The Plan” that I’ve witnessed unfolding in #QAnon discourses. When things actually started coming true, I grew concerned.

  1. Trump obtaining authority to hold military tribunals and summary executions.  Sneakily Done (Watch: InfoWars briefing).
  2. Trump obtaining funding for the wall.  Sneakily Done.
  3. Deploying troops to the border. Done.
  4. Declaring a national emergency.✓ We are here.
  5. Declaring martial law to authorize the military for building the wall, mass immigration round ups, and military tribunals against the alleged Cabal (which happens to include Deep State Operatives).

If Trump really is behind this… if there really is a conspiracy… it means he has no intention of re-opening the government. In fact, the government shut-down would make it easier for him to accomplish all of this. And while their interpretation of law is kinda sketchy… now that the courts have been stacked in Trump’s favor… who could stop him? And if he isn’t orchestrating this plot, why hasn’t he denounced it? He watches InfoWars and must know what they’re saying.

Congress needs to get their shit together… and soon.

Someone should ask OMAROSA if all of this sounds like “The Plan” she learned of while working in the White House.

Someone should also ask Lindsey GRAHAM about why the hell he was asking KAVANAUGH about military tribunals. Is he in on this plot?

I also need to point out, that Trump has already quietly declared a national emergency to deal w/ traitors (recall, that he has been accusing Dems and the Deep State of doing things the EO says are to be dealt with). Now, all he has to do is figure out how to declare martial law.

The Octopus

(Opinion) Trump's supporters aren't really cheering for martial law. They're cheering for how they believe it will be used to purge our government, and our nation, of a Cabal of the worst evil their minds can imagine.

During a recent interview, Nancy PELOSI said that she thinks President TRUMP would like to abolish congress. This is something I’ve suspected for quite some time, and I am so relieved that someone on Capital Hill is now watching for any trends in that direction. And while her critics say that she is nuts, and that there is zero evidence that President TRUMP is planning to impose martial law… I posit that prepping the nation for martial law is exactly what TRUMP’s social media director and the propagandists over at InfoWars have been doing with their #QAnon project.

Take a look around social media, and you’ll discover people who are not only expecting martial law, but who are also quite joyful about it. Who in their right mind would actually want martial law in America? That’s the thing about propaganda… it seeds viral ideas that shape perspectives, tricking people into wanting what would be normally unacceptable. These people aren’t actually cheering for martial law… They’re cheering for how they believe it will be used to purge our government, and our nation, of a Cabal of the worst evil their minds can imagine.

I mentioned here that the #PedoGate thing is reminiscent of the Moral Panic that plagued America at the height of the Cold War. Know what else sounds really familiar to me? All this talk about a Cabal… which I had totally forgotten about until Trump revived Soviet Cold War propaganda about Afghanistan. That was enough to set off an alarm in my Cold Warrior mind… but when I noticed that certain right-wing propagandists are actually starting to talk crap about Reagan, I was convinced: #QAnon is a continuation of the Soviet’s Octopus propaganda project.

Prior to invading Afghanistan, the Soviets kicked their active measures into high gear and started gaining ground in Central America and the Middle East. In response, our country launched extremely aggressive counter-measures. In summary: We used every resource at our disposal to indirectly demoralize the hell out of them. Right or wrong, our efforts successfully led to the downfall of the Soviet Union… but not before having to fight a few Cold War battles on American soil.

Besides Soviet spies, co-opted businessmen, and turncoat politicians, we had a lot of propaganda to deal with… but two things initially worked in our favor. First: Propaganda was easier to keep track of and counter. Second: The CIA was allowed to do more on American soil, making it a lot easier to fight the bad guys. Much of the Soviet propaganda effort was meant to destroy these two advantages.

They demonized our CIA as a force of untethered power, with tentacles reaching into every aspect of society… and they claimed that we would see the end of freedom if it ever fell into the wrong hands.

They claimed that those “wrong hands” were brought into our government by the Reagan administration… who they claimed was using those “tentacles” to control the enemies of their evil Cabal.

They claimed that the Cabal had conspired with the CIA to provoke the Soviet Union into invading Afghanistan. They claimed that this was done to malign the Soviet image, and to justify attacks against them… which had to be done because the Soviets were all that prevented the power-lusting Cabal from establishing their New World Order.

Interestingly, one could call the whole thing an elaborate piece of Whataboutism… since our own government had likened the Soviet Union to an Octopus, whose tentacles aimed to strangle the entire world into submission. Unfortunately, the Soviet’s Octopus propaganda campaign was largely successful… and paranoia about government overreach eventually led to a complete prohibition of CIA activities on US soil, and to the end of the Fairness Doctrine (which had been effective at thwarting propaganda).

What made their campaign so effective, was that it actually had a basis in reality. The CIA certainly is a powerful global organization, and it could be used to do evil things if it ever fell under the control of evil people. And the United States certainly did establish a New World Order at the end of World War II, with which we wield a ridiculous amount of power… and we could do a lot of damage to the world if we don’t wield that power responsibly.

Today, it’s QAnon who revives the myth of the Cabal, and they’re using it to malign the FBI, the same way the Soviets once did the CIA. And it’s quite astounding… the way they’re using the myth to justify evil crap that they’re accusing the Cabal of doing in the first place… how they intend to stop the Cabal, who they claim are out to destroy American freedoms, by declaring martial law, which would suspend American freedoms.

No matter how you look at this thing… Trump and his ilk are evil bastards. If they’re not really planning a military Junta, then they’ve orchestrated an elaborate and devastating con job on the American public. If they really are attempting a military Junta… that would mean that they are conspiring to overthrow the government, for the purpose of violating civil rights. The fact that the first three phases of “The Plan” has been accomplished and Trump is currently working on the fourth makes me think that the latter is what’s going on.

But why? I’ve searched my heart and soul for reasons, and have come up with nothing good. Perhaps this is all a desperate and selfish attempt to escape criminal prosecution… from either his known crimes, or ones he fears the Kremlin might expose him for. Or maybe he is motivated by a sense of relative moral duty… and hopes to purge America of its non-Americans. And I can’t help but also wonder if he, himself, has fallen victim to Russian propaganda. That he repeats Kremlin narratives certainly suggests that he has adopted Russian Truth.

Maybe I’m wrong, and I certainly hope so. Maybe all he wants to do is build his stupid wall. But if I’m right… I hope that the GOP hasn’t entirely lost their minds, and that they will help stop him.

The Red-Green Elephant in the Room

Just a few notes on what I've noticed about Green activists. How Russia supports them... and how they support the Kremlin agenda.

ACTIVISM: Inside the Sunrise Movement (it didn’t happen by accident). “The birth of the Sunrise Movement started with a small grant, a lot of Monster Energy drinks and a little help from the Sierra Club. Now it’s the most talked-about environmental group in Washington.”

In 2014, Hillary Clinton quietly mentioned that Russia is funding environmental activists through Klein LTD. The Sea Change Foundation, the Sierra Club, and the Sunrise Movement are the most well known of these groups. While Klein LTD denies it all, the GOP actually conducted an investigation confirming allegations. Oddly, access to the original report has been blocked on the internet. Fortunately, I previously downloaded a copy of it.

Consensus on the Hill was that Russia is doing this to disrupt our energy market, but I disagree. Here’s what I’ve noticed about politicians (like Jill Stein, and AOC) who are involved with these groups.

  1. They show little to no concern over Russian active measures.
  2. They are radical about climate change and advocate for a Green New Deal as a means for abolishing capitalism, which they believe is what is killing our planet.
  3. They push for isolationist foreign policies of non-intervention.

I am not suggesting that any of these people are Kremlin agents… not at all. But the fact that their agendas support Russian objectives merits concern and reflection.

While our strategists and liberal intelligentsia contemplate the various ways that we’re being fucked with, I think it is very important that we remember that Russia’s very first goal for America, was to convert us to socialism.

“The Communist theory of international affairs is exceedingly simple. The revolution foretold by Marx, which is to abolish capitalism throughout the world, happened to begin in Russia, though Marxian theory would seem to demand that it should begin in America.” — Bertrand Russell

A little known fact, is that the term “American Exceptionalism” was actually coined by Stalin to describe how we are the exception to Marxist theory. The usual methods for provoking a proletariat uprising don’t work on us… and Gorbechev actually predicted that “climate alarmism” is what would do the trick.

Climate change deniers have been warning for years, that communists are co-opting environmentalism as a tool for destroying capitalism. But, because they deny climate science, we’ve ignored them… just like we ignored Glenn Beck’s warnings about Dugism, because he is Glenn Beck.

If you haven’t already read the text of the Green New Deal, please do. And do so, with the knowledge that it was written by the Sunrise Movement, and that there’s a good chance that the Sunrise Movement may be a Kremlin Op.

It’s been easy for us to recognize and condemn the ways active measures have manipulated those on the Right side of the political spectrum, but we have failed to acknowledge the ways we are being manipulated on the Left as well.

The Right has been tricked into attacking aspects of democracy which they’ve been conditioned into viewing as threats to conservatism and the American way of life. Similarly, the Left is being tricked into attacking aspects of democracy which they’ve been conditioned into viewing as threats to the environment and human existence. In both cases, existential crisis has served as the triggering mechanism.

Many of us have been worried about how a fifth column might exist in the right-wing of politics… a fifth column which intends a soft coup that would fundamentally change our constitutional form of government. But most of us have totally missed how the very same thing is happening in the left-wing.

The currently proposed Green New Deal calls for us to mobilize the nation against climate change, the same way we did during World War II. I’d like to remind people that our constitution had to be suspended for that Total War Machine. And the same thing would have to happen today for the Green War Machine, because it as well calls for the government to control our means of production. If that were to happen… it would mean that the “non-binding” resolution currently known as the Green New Deal would supersede our constitution for at least ten years.

Personally, I’m all for saving the environment… but do we really have to sacrifice democracy to do it? I don’t think so… and I hope we don’t.

It really would be nice…

Socialism and Social Democracy are not the same thing! It's getting tougher to have civilized conversations with Republicans, but I'm really trying.

Yesterday, at my place of business…

“I’ve been saying for years that we need to secure the border. All that crime. It’s horrible.”

“Pretty sure those crime numbers are off. The President needs to stop watching Fox. They’re not even FCC licensed and don’t have to tell the truth.”

“But what about the disease?”

“Yeah. If people got their vaccinations they wouldn’t have to worry about that nonsense. But we’re not even pro- illegal immigration, you know. Our problem is with the way our legal immigration system is broken. People who are actually following the legal process shouldn’t end up in prison… and human beings shouldn’t be treated like animals… should they?”

“But it’s so true that (immigrants) get treated better. Took my sister forever to get her license renewed at the DMV, but this guy who couldn’t even speak English got his brand new license super quick, with no problem.”

“Was she getting the new fancy ID that doubles as a passport? Yeah. They really do want a ton of documents for that nonsense.”

“We have our own people to worry about. Did you know that in some states, there are more people on welfare than there are working?”

“How many of those people on welfare, also work? Cuz that’s a problem, you know… a lot of people who work full-time still need state assistance.”

“I think we have a lot more people unemployed than we think. Those numbers are all about who’s collecting unemployment benefits… not those who aren’t actually working.”

“Yeah, I agree. Just about every one of our presidents uses that trick to inflate their jobs numbers. It’s pretty gross.”

“If Democrats started doing what they used to do–focused on the working class and working conditions, so people actually could and would want to work again, they’d start winning again. Too bad they’ve lost their way.”

“That’s why I’m glad they just announced they’re not letting outsiders like the socialists run on our ticket anymore.”

“But how’s that going to work if Democrats *are* socialists?”

“But they’re not. They’re mostly social democrats.”

“What’s the difference?”

“Communism, socialism, and democratic socialism are all anti-capitalist. Communism turns local businesses into community co-opts that nobody privately owns. With socialism, the government takes over industry and ends corporatism by becoming Thee Corporation. Democratic socialism isn’t really its own political ideology, but more like the process of choosing and transitioning to socialism.

But social democracy is pro-capitalism, with the government only involved in business to regulate it, in a way that makes sure it doesn’t harm the welfare of the people. It has nothing to do with socialism… It’s only called ‘social’ because it believes the government should function to serve the welfare of its society. Not sure why people think any of that is a bad thing.”

“It really would be nice… if it actually worked that way.”

“Yep… it really would be.”

Cultural Marxism (A Primer)

Economic Royalists. The Heritage Foundation. The plot against FDR's liberal movement continues. A super brief summary of the origins of the Cultural Marxist conspiracy theory.

In the thirties, a group of financial elites who did not appreciate the new liberal effort to eliminate social and economic disparities attempted to overthrow the government. Read: When the Bankers Plotted to Overthrow FDR

FDR called them Economic Royalists, and often warned that they would rear their heads again. Read: FDR’s Acceptance Speech

They did so in the early seventies, when some of them formed the Heritage Foundation to think-tank political strategies. Read: Are Economic Royalists Leading the US Over a Precipice?

The Heritage Foundation then formed various organizations for the purpose of setting their strategies in motion. One of these organizations was the (now defunct) Free Congress Foundation.

“Free Congress Foundation is politically conservative, but it is more than that: it is also culturally conservative. Most think tanks talk about tax rates or the environment or welfare policy and occasionally we do also. But our main focus is on the Culture War. Will America return to the culture that made it great, our traditional, Judeo-Christian, Western culture? Or will we continue the long slide into the cultural and moral decay of political correctness? If we do, America, once the greatest nation on earth, will become no less than a third world country.” (link)

It was the Free Congress that came up with the idea to frame “political correctness” as an ideology and liberal conspiracy to destroy Christianity and Western culture. Read: History of Political Correctness

Andrew Breivik further developed the conspiracy theory as Cultural Marxism and claimed that it targeted the white race specifically, with goals of Western Islamization. Read: The Breivik Manifesto

AOC Whataboutism

AOC may be right about journalists not paying enough attention to white supremacy on Capital Hill, but she still needs to answer questions about her socialism.

“How is democratic socialism different than traditional socialism?” Meghan McCain is one of many asking Ocasio-Cortez questions like this, and Ben Shapiro is one of many who points out that her answers are evasive.

I personally dislike that it’s mainly right-wing pundits who are confronting her on this issue.

AOC might find it annoying, but I think our public curiosity is justified, and that it is not unreasonable for journalists to ask about socialism… especially since supporters of democratic socialism don’t even agree about what it intends for our country.

“But, don’t you want universal healthcare and to tax the rich? Don’t you want to bring back the New Deal?” — AOC Fan

While trying to discuss this with AOC supporters, I learned that many of them actually think that democratic socialism and social democracy are the same thing (it is most definitely not). Overall, they were in complete denial over how AOC’s call for “national, industrial, economic mobilization” might mean the nationalization of our industry and economy… even though the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) plainly explain that nationalization is their goal.

Some of the people I engaged with seemed to understand that democratic socialism means a transition to socialism… yet, they insisted that she is only using a socialist platform to negotiate for social democracy. Has she actually said this? From a negotiating standpoint, it would actually be foolish to admit as much… and I highly doubt that she has. It sounds more to me, as if people are trying to sugarcoat her position to make it more palatable to social democrats. Or they may be in denial, entertaining wishful thoughts.

The few I spoke with who actually admitted that the democratic socialists aim to turn our country into a socialist one insisted that this would only be temporary… just to combat climate change, the way we mobilized the national war machine during World War II. But… for how long? For ten years? Just until we are sure that we won’t reach the point of no return? And for how long afterward, for maintenance purposes? Let’s be real. Once that machine starts rolling, we won’t be able to just shut it off.

Whenever asked to explain her democratic socialism, she has responded by saying that she doesn’t want anyone to be poor. Everything she says she wants… all of her goals… they are quite appealing to social democrats. Universal healthcare. Minimum incomes. Free college. Freedom from debt slavery. The elimination of social and economic disparity. Taxing the rich at 70% (or higher). These are all goals that social democrats have been talking about for ages. Our methods for achieving them, however, are quite different. And it is just plain dishonest of her to avoid making these distinctions.

Dugin is no Socrates

The Dark Enlightenment Intelligentsia dudes are so fricken creepy.

What an interesting indictment coming from Dugin shill, Michael Millerman. I wonder… is he, or Dugin, supposed to be Socrates here? And why? Because they use the Socratic method to incite youth to rebellion? Yet, they don’t challenge authority as Socrates did… they fight for authoritarianism. They don’t challenge the Old Gods… they fight to restore them. They don’t advocate for change… they fight for Old World traditions. They are devolutionists, whose ways mean to spiral us into chaos and barbarism. They are the antithesis to Socrates… and they are the ones who would have cast the first stones at Socrates’ execution.

#HoldTheCenter

Why I might vote for a neocon.

Someone recently accused me of being a Republican. Mostly because I say stuff like:

“I’d rather ally with the neocons than with the socialists.”

It is super amazing that people have forgotten the origins of neoconservatism. But they’re being reminded now, of how it all started with liberals on the left side of the political spectrum. Intervening on a global scale for the preservation of peace is indeed a liberal endeavor. And it wasn’t until policies of intervention took on Crusader attitudes that it became known as “neoconservatism” and leaned to the right of the political aisle.

Now that our old common enemy — Soviet influence — attempts to rise again, interventionists on both sides of the aisle reach out to each other. But can we, liberals, actually trust the neocons? I remember that they were the ones who liked to push the whole machismo thing in America… they were the ones who portrayed liberals as weak-sauce bleeding hearts… and they are the ones who beat the drums of our forever war on terrorism. However… they are advocates of liberal democracy, and that’s what we’re fighting for, isn’t it? And they do acknowledge the Kremlin as our nation’s greatest external threat.

Moreover… they are the loyal opposition… a concept that Americans seem to have forgotten. They’re not out to destroy the Democratic party… they simply have different priorities than we do. So, yeah… I’m all in for supporting neocons. Yes, we’ll end up arguing with them about whether to send boots or humanitarian packages to third world countries. And we’ll argue with them about military and social welfare budgets. But at least we’ll still be able to argue. At least they can help us steer America away from authoritarianism and the destruction of American liberalism.

Does this mean I’d vote for a neocon over a socialist running on the Democratic ticket? You bet. Does this make me a Republican? I don’t think so. I think it makes me an independent, who votes for anyone who holds the center, against both right- and left- wing extremism.

Be Best, by Gillette

Why I hate Gillette's "short film" about toxic masculinity.

Seriously. Was this created by someone who actually advocates for male chauvinism? Because I don’t think this is how most liberals actually think. It is, however, definitely how the anti-PC collective thinks of us: As overprotective parents who coddle our children, instead of teaching them to be strong… and as needy women who demand protection, instead of learning to hold our own.

Is this the best a man can get? This question, followed by exaggerated slights and contrived examples of how to “act right”… It’s fucking oppressive. If I were a trad operative, this is exactly the type of asymmetric propaganda piece I would create to convince people that liberalism means to turn us into a nation of emasculated pussies.

What would a real liberal piece about toxic masculinity be like? It certainly wouldn’t portray it as if it simply amounted to being less than a gentleman… and it certainly wouldn’t treat the violence of it as if it amounted to schoolboy roughhousing. Toxic masculinity isn’t just about being an ill-mannered, ignorant, dick. It is a self-centered morality that ruthlessly seeks conquest. It is a lifestyle of brutality… capable of utter humiliation, rape, and even murder.

So… fuck you, Gillette. Take your faux feminism and shove it… along with your lady razors, priced twice as much as those you create for the more masculine population.

Never Again to ANYONE … Even Catholic Schoolboys in MAGA Hats

If, in spite of all the evidence, you’re still trying to find reasons to persecute the Covington Catholic Schoolboys, if you haven’t raised an eyebrow over the BHI, and if you call yourself a liberal… I implore you to spend some time in self-reflection.

A lot of people are really upset with those Catholic school boys who allegedly harassed a native American elder in DC the other day. And they’re pissed off at Robby Soave for coming to their defense. But I’m happy he is doing this, and I totally agree with him.

I watched the videos, and I really don’t think they did anything wrong. But don’t take my word for it. Go ahead and see for yourself.

It looks to me, like… They were doing the “tomahawk chop dance” before the Native American elder even entered the scene. It looks to be a school cheer… and they did a lot of them, in response to the Black Hebrew Israelites who were trying to provoke them. They weren’t mocking the elder… He walked over to them, and offered up a drum beat to go with their cheers.

The Black Hebrew Israelites (BHI) were the aggressive racists here. Seriously. Why are people afraid to say this? Because they’re black? If your social injustice lens only detects white racism, you really need to check yourself. Bigotry comes in different shades, y’all. Not just white. And this group? This black group? They’re a religious extremist group of misogynistic, Anti-Semitic, black supremacists who are itching to fight a bloody race war in America. Moreover, dick holes like them seem to exist to validate the white genocide conspiracy theory the Nazis use to recruit new followers.

Now… don’t get it twisted. I am one who thinks that the white civil rights movement is stupid… because whites already have civil rights. I also see it as a dirty trick that means to reestablish and maintain white privilege. I am 100% against white supremacy. I am also 100% against black supremacy. I am 100% against systematic master/slave dichotomies, and I am against all forms of relative group morality.

If, in spite of all the evidence, you’re still trying to find reasons to persecute the Covington Catholic Schoolboys, if you haven’t raised an eyebrow over the BHI, and if you call yourself a liberal… I implore you to spend some time in self-reflection.

And, yes… I said, “persecution”.

“I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again… calling for private citizens to get fired, kicked out of school, & ostracized for doing things that they have a legal RIGHT to do, no matter how much we disagree w/ their actions, is wrong. This vigilante justice crap needs to stop.” — @girlyGRRRL

It’s one thing to expose propagandists, terrorists, and influencers who mean us harm. And I think we should certainly confront assholes whenever we encounter them in real life. But I think it’s malicious and terribly illiberal to publicly humiliate and call for the shunning of a private citizen… because we don’t like the way they behave.

“… we’re not allowed to ostracize people now? That’s Geek Social Fallacy #1. Acting like an asshole in a legal manner is what ostracism was made for. http://www.plausiblydeniable.com/opinion/gsf.html
— @DaphLawless

“Ostracism is a totally illiberal concept. But then, again, you’re a socialist, right? Thus you have no problem with collectivism and the community voting to determine your every action for you. Just one of the ways socialism and liberalism are incompatible.” — @girlyGRRRL

Yes, I understand that we want to eradicate systematic racism… but do you realize you are asking schools, employers, and communities to monitor, control, and decide the private lives of their employees and members? Do you realize you are holding trials of public opinion to determine a perfect stranger’s destiny? Do you realize, that you are actually killing self-determination with this bullshit? There is nothing liberal about this. Liberalism is supposed to be about overcoming systems of oppression… not imposing new ones. Seriously, people… think about it. Can y’all stop acting like the monsters the radical right accuses us of being? It’s embarrassing.

If you have the time, I highly recommend this lecture… about tolerance. In my opinion… if we remember that tolerance is about patience, it makes things a lot easier.

NazBol Gang When?

Some are wondering why I'm being so hard on the illiberal left at the moment. What about the alt-right Nazis? Have I forgotten about them?

Me, back in May 2017:

Most alt-right “true” believers are anti-Trump socialists. Richard Spencer, leader of the alt-right, even very recently publicly said that he is a Bernie supporter… Don’t be fooled by the Alt-Right. They are anti-West, anti-Democracy, anti-Liberty. And not just un-American, but anti-American. If you don’t believe me, go watch the full speech Spencer gave at Auburn University recently. (link)

Here’s his main speech… full of outrage triggering Nazi rhetoric:

And here’s the Q&A session, in which he reveals his socialist views:

Know what I’ve noticed about the illiberal right and left? They share the same agenda. The Green New Deal promoted by “democratic” socialists, and Trump’s economic nationalism1 actually compliment each other… because they both promote socialism. Leftist non-intervention and the right-wing’s America First policies both promote isolationism. Social Justice Warriors on both sides of the aisle… the hyper-vigilant anti-fascists who impose group-morality, and the fascists who promote group-think… they both promote collectivism.

Think about it. The goals of each, compliment the other. Put democratic socialism and national socialism together… and you’ll see that there is no need for either side to compromise. They fit together like hand and glove. And if they ever do come together, we’ll end up with National Bolshevism… and the end of liberal democracy.

If I’m harder on the left than the right at the moment, it’s because I’m on that side of the aisle. For the last two years, we’ve been telling Republicans that if they don’t agree with their loudest, most visible members, then they need to speak up. And that’s exactly what I’m doing… speaking out against things I think are going wrong in my own party.


Notes:

  1. If you have doubts about whether “economic nationalism” is meant to be socialist, please watch Steve Bannon’s October 2017 GOP speech, when speaking of economic nationalism and he says: “Why nationalism? It works for China.”

We have a lot to learn from South Africa

President Trump recently spewed alt-right propaganda about white genocide in South Africa, and has pretty much ruined US foreign relations in the region.

Reposted from Twitter (with some correction of tweet-speak):

25 SEP 18

I can’t help but think that the alt-right #WhiteGenocide Op that put a wedge between US & South Africa was meant to do exactly that. SA, under new leadership, would be a great opportunity for US investment… but w/o US involvement, SA is being pushed toward dependence on China & Russia.

What’s *actually* going on in SA should be of major interest to America socially as well. Our own country never went through any sort of transitional justice when we ended our own apartheid… and many of our minorities are still disenfranchised, despite their having equal rights.

The big question, is why? Why, tho’ free, do many US non-whites still live in segregated communities, seemingly trapped in cycles of poverty and crime, still subject to injustices meted out by authorities?

In SA, blacks are the majority, yet they are still mostly powerless… and minority whites still possess most of the power. SA is proof that strength in numbers is not the only thing that matters. Neither is it the main cause of inequality, nor is freedom alone a solution to slavery.

The more I learn about South Africa, the more I admire their country. Just think… when the blacks rose up, they could have killed all the whiteys, but they didn’t. Instead of oppressing their oppressors, they sought to build, WITH THEM, a nation of justice & equality.

Their transition has been fragile and complicated, but they keep trying. We have MUCH to learn from SA. Because of our own social inequalities, we should have a personal interest in SA’s success as a just & equal society. An investment in SA, would be an investment in our own future.

WE are the Globalists, y’all!

So fed up with people complaining about NATO and the UN.

Michigan is experiencing a hell of a cold snap, which has left me stuck indoors to binge on gingersnaps and Netflix. My vicious bully and I were watching The Tudors, when it dawned on me…

How ironic is it, that England would end up being the one to start breaking up the European Union, when it is their own country that started the whole thing with the Treaty of London?

It’s as stupid as the United States withdrawing from US led NATO, and as idiotic as the US denouncing the UN, which we founded and headquarter. Seriously… when Americans say that they are sick of NATO and the UN infringing on our sovereignty… they are saying that they are sick of America telling America what to do. WE are the Globalists. They are denouncing our own country’s international influence, and denouncing our own leadership of the Free World.

It’s maddening.

Know Thine Enemy: The Trad-Right (A Reading List)

"What books do you recommended, that would help in formulating strategy in this culture war?" Tons! But let's start with these...

I keep meaning to write a thoughtful post about cultural warfare strategy, but… honestly… micro-blogging on Twitter has wrecked my writing skills a lot more than power-blogging on Blogger once did. The subject matter, however, feels too important to not write about right now. And so… instead of ruminating over this for weeks, I’ll start with a reading list and few brief notes about who I believe are the greatest threat to liberalism at the moment.

In my opinion, our oldest, and strongest enemy are they who FDR called the Economic Royalists, who now identify themselves as cultural conservatives, or as the new/alt/trad-right. I think they should be called the Remnants of the Slave Masters. If you’ve ever wondered why some conservatives let Russia get away with what they do… it’s because they share the same goals for America. They are the enemies within… which is what makes them our greatest threat.

Some refer to them as the Christian-Right. Personally, I resist calling them this. Besides being Christian myself, I know a lot of decent Christians who call themselves conservative, and who aren’t evil bastards like these people. In my opinion, the trad-right are more Anti-Christ than actually Christian… a topic that really deserves its own separate entry.

The following is a list of what I have found extremely useful for understanding their agenda and political strategy. Their primary strategist is William Lind… co-founder of the Heritage Foundation.

  • Cultural Marxism (A Primer). Please read all the materials linked on that page, and at least the first chapter of Breivik’s lengthy manifesto. These articles and resources reveal the history of this group, their ideology of inequality, and how they radicalize people and grow their base.
  • Cultural Conservatism Toward a new National Agenda. This book, crafted by William Lind, reveals their strategy for co-opting Christianity and turning Christians against liberalism. Equally important, it reveals their policy goals… which they’ve disguised as the promotion of Christian values. These policies are extremely anti-feminist, by the way. They seem to be more afraid of independent women, than they are of minorities.
  • Victoria: A Novel of Fourth Generation War. Also written by Lind, under a pseudonym which he recently owned up to. Don’t bother with free e-versions of this book… chapters were left out of those. Reading the book reviews, you’ll see many complain about how this is such a strangely written novel that does more tell than show. The book is “strangely” written, because it isn’t actually a “novel”. Rather, it is a game-plan for re-establishing America as a slave state, disguised as a novel. Lind would say, that this piece is a “prediction”. But in my view, prophecies that include plans and strategies of self-fulfillment aren’t actually “predictions” … they’re conspiracies.
  • Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution. Since he often spews their rhetoric, I’ve suspected Tucker Carlson of being trad-right. This recent book of his confirms it for me. The works listed above are pretty old, and many of the trad-right goals have been met since they were written. Tucker Carlson’s Ship of Fools serves as a sort of, current State of the Union address for the trad-right community… as well as a recruitment tool. Like Lind, Carlson “predicts” civil war, and the replacement of democracy with authoritarianism in America.

While reading through all of the above, you might notice that their ideology is outwardly Nazi, but inwardly socialist/communist. I was initially confused by this, but… think about it…

  • Early socialist groups in America were deeply rooted in Christianity, and they even called themselves Christian Socialists.
  • National-Bolshevism amounts to socialism for the in-group, at the expense of out-groups.
  • Bertrand Russell once said that Bolshevism needed to adopt religious fanaticism in order to be successful, and it seems that contemporary socialists are heeding his advice.

One more item you may be interested in for research purposes… not actually from the American trad-right, but what looks to be what is being used to forge relationships between Russian and American trad-right groups… the Christo-Fascist writings of Codreanu.

Something that I think is very important to consider when crafting counter-strategy against the trad-right: I really don’t think that they can accomplish their goals without the support of Christians… and the anti-abortion issue is their main tool for Christian recruitment.

That’s all for now. Good luck! And, please drop me a line if you’d like to share ideas.
