Hate

Let’s sort out this crazy little thing called hate, and be clear on what it is and isn’t. Hate is not evil or dark. Hate is an integral part of a healthy human soul. It is best understood as an impulse to protect the things you value. For example, you love your grandmother, therefore you hate anyone who’d knock her down and kick her in the face. Hate motivates you to be proactive about securing an environment in which nobody batters your grandma. There are two kinds of out-group hate, and I dub them Existential and Sensory.

First, just a few words on Existential Hate. It comes from the fear of annihilation at the hands of one’s equals or superiors in intelligence, organizational skill, or cunning. The impulse can also be expressed as hostility toward anyone more successful or beautiful. Existential Hate functions as prudent vigilance against predators and high-functioning parasites but unchecked, it becomes paranoia.

The other kind is Sensory Hate. It comes from the fear of contamination rather than subversion or organized violence. One feels it for his perceived inferiors whom he sees in some way — aesthetic, moral — as repellent, but doesn’t take them seriously as rivals. In today’s forcibly desegregated West, this is how Whites feel about liberated Blacks when we get close enough to get on each others’ nerves.

Whereas Existential Hate can keep one up at night, with Sensory Hate it’s “out of sight, out of mind.” If you’ve gone for a stretch of days without seeing a mudshark couple or hearing a ghetto female shrieking into her cell phone, your feelings toward will Blacks revert to benevolence.

But when you find yourself captive audience to the object of your odium, your hate will spike. For a hypothetical example, imagine a scenario that will no doubt ring secretly familiar even to liberal Whites: elementary school-aged Black kids from the nearby apartments are hanging out on your street, making noise with their electronics and skateboards. You wait until they leave on their own, visions of Raid cans in your head.

A neighbor slowly drives around them as they are certainly not stepping out of her car’s way, and averts her eyes as they glare at her. And then you see that there is a little White girl with them, and you wonder about her parents, possibly a divorced mother. Your hate is dialed up another notch, firing right over their heads and straight for the heart of the organizing principles of the liberal order.

You ask yourself — how are we going to build communities when they get to run free right here while we do play-dates? It’s a thing to snark about, but… I ran free and rode buses alone or with friends as a child in 1970s Warsaw and would now consider it insanity to let a seven-year-old White kid leave a parent’s sight in the borderless land of strangers… like that girl hanging out with the black kids. And this train of thoughts leads toward a suspicion that we live in an open-air extermination camp.

Under full rights of association along with local vigilance, everyone’s freedom was maximized because everyone knew where he belonged and had full sovereignty there. And now with the boot of the state entirely on Whites’ necks, freedom has become a zero-sum game, with us holding the goose egg. Hate just got hotter.

***

Don’t run from your hate. It’s a sign of life. But you have to control it — hate is napalm against those who’d harm that which you love, and such a potent fluid mustn’t overflow its holding tank and burn your soft tissue.

And if you feel like hate is making you go crazy, it is. Do something about it. Keep in mind that life in captivity doles out feelings of helplessness, so any hate that is not steadied by a substrate of testosterone and riding on a sense of direction and purpose, will turn inward and degrade to despair. The fast remedy against despair: go to the gym and max it out. If going to a gym is not possible, do fifty slow perfect form push-ups. It will transform rage into a sense of perspective, along with a look of I got your number, boy.

***

Will the European race survive the 21st century? If that boot stays on our necks, then barring unknown developments, it doesn’t look good. But even the lowest bug fights against its annihilation once survival protocols kick in. In fat times, old folks waste their grandkids’ inheritance on travel. But during famine, these same grandparents would pass on the food and die so that the toddlers can eat.

Things may not need to come to a ruthless final solution (an Ace card that we hold). The ascension of Donald Trump to U.S. Presidency has been championed by freedom-hungry men of every Western nation and beyond, riding on our aspirations that in our lifetimes, we will extricate ourselves from the corrupt twin visions of globalism and amalgamation.

  1. Freedom-loving?

    Murka is a full blown police state right now. Trump won’t change that. CCTV on traffic lights, LPRs, FRS, NSA and FBI surveillance, the merging of gov and corporate databases, the list goes on.

    Men like William Wallace and George Washington didn’t talk their enemies to death, or worse, try to vote them out. They killed the crap out of them.

    THAT, is how you earn your freedom. Anything else is masturbation.

    If you want to show a scene from Braveheart, show the right now; not Wallace being tortured by the paid whores of the government. Show him hunting down his enemies, their fear and begging for mercy.

  2. The left played a dangerous game with the word “hate,” eventually diluting it’s meaning out of existence. Christianity makes it very clear what is hate and what isn’t. Unfortunately the secular left is so philosophically shallow it has sanctified a hodgepodge of progressive pieties that seem to change with the seasons. How many genders are there now? I’ve lost count. I guess I’m a hater.

    To the left, “hate” simply means anything opposing their ideology or agenda.
    To have a legitimate discussion about what ACTUALLY constitutes Islam is “hate.”
    If you don’t want a tranny going to the bathroom with your 12 year old daughter, you are full of hate. It is hateful to honestly discuss black crime. If you don’t want Mexicans to pour over your borders, you “hate” Mexicans.

    Now many people in my generation just shrug their shoulders and think, “OK so I guess I am a hateful, racist, cisgendered white man. Now what?”

    The left’s obsession with controlling language is revealing. They can’t make reality fit their ideology, so they are on a never-ending quest to change and police language so that people won’t notice or are punished for noticing. That worked for awhile when they had control over the media, but now that we can circumvent them, their project is falling apart. The fact that they are now resorting to outright censorship means they have lost the argument and they are now just flailing about in a last desperate attempt to crush dissenting speech.

  3. Even Emerson spotted the value in this station of life. RW Emerson probably saved me from traversing the nether regions *in full.* I’m talking real crime. Say what you want about the man, this is required reading for those who aspire to enact ‘Never Say Die’ in a way that accords with The Creator of Creators.

  5. “Will the European race survive the 21st century? If that boot stays on our necks, then barring unknown developments,”

    Yes, there’s no future for civilization without the European race. And even your detractors as well as outright enemies know as much.

  6. Yes, there’s no future for civilization without the European race. And even your detractors as well as outright enemies know as much.

    You keep saying that, but I’m not so sure that it’s true. Watch that video of Jared Taylor speaking on behalf of the nascent white student union. When he brings up the fact that whites will be a minority in the US, the NAM audience cheers and claps in delight. Yes, that is their expected response to a WN speaker, but even in ordinary circumstances, I run across blacks who even though appear to be agreeable to whites, will often let it slip that they relish the day whites are a disenfranchised.

  7. Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good. (Romans 12:9)

    The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate. (Proverbs 8:13)

    The subversives can call hatred evil only because they have done the centuries of preparatory groundwork to define evil out of existence. “There is nothing
    either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”

    The most important line from yesterday’s speech: “The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.” Our new president is not frozen in vacillation like Shakespeare’s prince, the model for today’s elite. The worship of intellectual virtues has made this nation vulnerable to lies so obvious that children could detect them.

    Trump importantly has come from the world of business, where a man is defined by results. For fifty years we have been led by academics whose worth is determined by words. That’s how the left got blindsided by a guy who says “bigly.” That’s why the enemy is constitutionally incapable of coming to terms with the new regime. They cannot compute 1 divided by 0, and so they will destroy themselves by the intellectual overload brought on by the infinite regression of an error.

  8. well, it’s true that if we’re going to debate this we have to have agreed-upon parameters on which area we’re discussing: The u.s.? the world? the western diaspora? And black population is holding steady; correlatedly, the U.S. underclass population is holding steady.

    And now that there’s a paleo-con administration at the fore, with pale-con issues prime on its agenda, those 2049-date figures in which whites become a minority are soon going to need a readjusting, don’t you think?

    Besides, there’s going to be all sorts of for now unheard of developments between now and then; intra-Hispanic clashes and defacto Civil Wars; formal ethnic distinctions and allegiances among U.S. blacks and caribbean blacks…Remember some of our back-n-forth on these matters with ‘Chuck’, aka “Lesacre du Temps?” In coming decades human Genome research is going to make genetic-adaptation more or less a plastic surgery technique (amongst other, more prime medical procedures) and people will be playing with their skin tones and other prime and current delineators of ethnicity.

    All of which will further confuse things far beyond the mess we’re already trying to sift through with mixed results.

  9. Nikcrit — although genome modification will take generations to play out; unlike the yearly iterations of Silicon Valley tech, alterations to the human form is not so readily experimented with. The first in vivo corrections will be to deadly genetic diseases in which benefits outweigh risk.

    That’s one reason I’m more interested in here and now policies in favor of whites currently living in this country and the next few generations of their progeny.

    By the time a far off vision of a white ethnostate is realized, the entire concept of race may be obsolete… but like R spencer, I think of a white ethnostate as an aspirational ideal. The next time a NAM gloats about white demographic decline, I can always say “well if you are so happy about that, why don’t we just speed along the process and we can all move to our own country where we will never bother you again?”

  10. MGE, I wasn’t being dead serious; I, in fact, don’t believe ‘race’ as we commonly use it impies a solely physical type of being; rather, it’s a nexus of speech, language, style, dialect and shared historical stacking record of relationship. To me, though, it’s interesting how many, including those in alt-right sites, stake their claim so boldly and with do-or-die attestation, all the while showing little reasoning on how fleeting those factors are.

    Again, everything changes in the social milieu, physically and socially, but there are always a new cast of aribiters and other such leaders telling/commanding or in other ways imploring us to adapt or abdicate the new rules, trends and taboos.

    But in the meantime, here’s a example of a guy who was unhappy with his racial endowment and decided he’d make a little switch.

    http://sport.citifmonline.com/2016/06/07/peter-zwennes-to-bukom-banku-bleached-skin-could-end-your-career/

    Would you guess he’s happy and his mind is at peace now?

  11. Yeah I get that nikcrit and I think most people in the alt right including this on this blog acknowledge as much. I mean PA at one point may have not been considered “full” white, Camlost today of course not. I think I probably occupy some weird space the milleu

    Spencer uses the example of that famous photo of the afghani girl on the natl. geographic cover. She is technically aryan, but could anyone today consider her white?

    My problem is that today, the only time the argument that “race isn’t real” is used it is to attack whites. I’m pushing back on that.

    I laid out my existential view on race in an earlier comment. It’s one of those profane characteristics that gives shape and meaning to our lives. I don’t think it’s fair to ask whites to be the only ones to transcend that

  12. But in the meantime, here’s a example of a guy who was unhappy with his racial endowment and decided he’d make a little switch.

    If I could change my essential makeup, through genetics or correction some hormonal / developmental accident, I would make myself straight, and I’m pretty damn certain I would be happier.

    Heartiste retweeted this the other day:

    That is not what I was destined for, but at least I can promote that as an ideal so that other people can be happy.

    I don’t have any self pity over that because I realize I could have it a whole lot worse

  13. Yeah, we all have our crosses to bear: for me, it’s ‘halfrican-ness’—– while i’m fine with it, i guess i’ll never know what it’s like to be part of a large, naturally evolving tribal human order.

    And I cannot imagine what it’s like to be gay; i’m sure there’s a sense of natural ‘outcaste’ status that at times becomes overwhelming.

    But for both you and me, perhaps the saving grace is: how can we know any other way? Therefore, we’ll never have to suffer how much our reality has provided us relative gain or loss, right?

  14. I mean PA at one point may have not been considered “full” white, Camlost today of course not. I think I probably occupy some weird space the milleu

    Wait, what?! WTF?!

  15. MGE likes White Russians. Lord knows I’ve had my share today. Congrats again, men. Let’s make our era something The Good God brags about to his electric alter egos. CHEERS

  16. Liberals are very active on Facebook today. I think they prefer being in the opposition than being in charge.

  17. Liberals are very active on Facebook today.

    Generally speaking, liberals are more active on the social networks.

    That observation is not new of course, and someone could use it as a starting point to lay out what is liberalism.

    I had to quit facebook because all the bullshit. But now i wish that i had not. I would have played it different. But i screwed it up — just like hs … coincidentally!

  18. This thread has rapidly veered (somewhat) off topic. I hope PA doesn’t zap those comments, because they are interesting.

    Not off topic however, is King’s comment.

    The divide by zero metaphor is interesting. Them libs sure are spinning their wheels trying to explain what went wrong — when the lesson is that the rubber meets the road and they lost.

  19. I, in fact, don’t believe ‘race’ as we commonly use it impies a solely physical type of being; rather, it’s a nexus of speech, language, style, dialect and shared historical stacking record of relationship. To me, though, it’s interesting how many, including those in alt-right sites, stake their claim so boldly and with do-or-die attestation, all the while showing little reasoning on how fleeting those factors are.

    Right. Race has a biological meaning and it has a social, cultural meaning.

    The intersection of those two meanings is the onion.

    When Ben Franklin said that upcountry Germans were too swarthy for our shores, and not part of OUR White Race, he was using “race” in a sense of ethnicity, which usage is not so common anymore, but it used to be.

    Race could refer to a specific ethny, as well as the broader continental categories.

    And that aside, is still a separate consideration from the first point, which is that there are social and cultural factors that go into its meaning, which factors play on the concept at both the narrower and broader levels.

  20. Ryu: Thanks for the clip. I haven’t seen the movie. Great scene. We’re not there yet, though. Depending on how things go, it may also not be necessary. We’ll see perhaps soon.

    Each Pond Gone: your Venus comment and link under the other post made my morning.

    King: it’s satisfying to see my thoughts on Hate supported by Biblical verses and further elaborated on by you. Good to see ya here. In an older post of mine, which I link to in the original, I quote a long comment by Trainspotter. Excerpt here:

    Traditionally, our people created honor-based societies which produced the best of both worlds – toughness as well as manners, martial vigor as well as beautiful art. These things, superficially at odds to the ignorant modern mind, actually go together quite well. For our people, anyway; with other races your mileage may vary.

    Whites must rekindle those old flames, both to achieve our own homelands and to defend them once they are ours again. Among countless benefits, a European honor culture will have no problem preventing racial aliens from trespassing upon the tribe.

    Apropos something, the original post ends with: “the corrupt twin visions of globalism and amalgamation.” Dunno about others, but in reviewing the draft I visualized the Twin Towers collapsing.

    — there’s no future for civilization without the European race (Nikcrit)

    I’m not always so sure of this. Samuel Huntington outlines six or seven great civilizations, with Western being just one of them. Then again, you can look at 1950s photos of pretty girls in Western fashion at Cairo University and make the case that the West’s leadership was in fact elevating the world to a universal standard. Either way, it didn’t hold.

    — The next time a NAM gloats about white demographic decline, I can always say (MGE)

    But the existential hate of a NAM who gives in to envy won’t permit him to tolerate our existence either near him or far away. In fact, as long as you’re his tax slave, you’re more useful to him close by.

    “[Existential Hate] can also be expressed as hostility toward anyone more successful or beautiful.” I had more written on this in a draft, but trimmed it for the final post. There is a lot more that can be said about this.

    — I’m pretty damn certain I would be happier. (MGE)

    The worst regrets are ones you can solely blame yourself for. A 30-sthg female acquaintance of mine, married but childless, attended today’s Stank March in DC. She’s not an SJW either, just a country naif who thinks she’s living the cool life.

    — Wait, what?! WTF?! (Laguna Beach Fogey)

    There is some unclarity on “considered White” and early US history, as far as I know it’s retro-propaganda along the lines of the now-debunked “Irish aren’t white!” claims. As to my genealogy, my paternal side has been Polish Catholic farmers going back centuries. My maternal grandfather descended from Polish Kresy (current Belarus) gentry. My maternal grandmother was half-Polish and half polonized German. As to my appearance, it wouldn’t be an unreasonable stretch to compare my look to Richard Spencer’s, albeit differently-handsome and not-quite ten years older.

    — I hope PA doesn’t zap those comments, because they are interesting. (Suburban_elk)

    Not a chance!

  21. — The divide by zero metaphor is interesting. (Elk)

    Matt King is the most formidable intellect I have come across in my 15 years of participation on the internet, rivaled only by Vox Day.

    — I had to quit facebook because all the bullshit. But now i wish that i had not. I would have played it different. But i screwed it up

    I don’t know how you screwed up but with such things it’s usually bygones, no such thing as burned bridges. The reason I bring this up is that I found a great way of bringing AltRight to conservative-leaning normies: rhetorical artillery support!

    What I mean is this: there are people who are vets maybe, or otherwise thoughtful right-leaning Americans who post even-keeled thoughtful observations in pure DIALECTIC. They are then bombarded by a zillion of their-friend libs and and wafflers with liberal talking points, often mean, snarky ones. In other words, shitlibs are returning fire with rhetoric. And as we know but normies don’t, dialectic stands no chance against rhetoric.

    What I do then, is find a suitable meme/comment on Twitter or Gab (I am @PA_01 there, not very active), save it as a screenshot JPG, and add it to the conversation thread in support of the original poster. What happens then, is a lot of people whom I don’t know, “like” my pic and are affirmed and emboldened by its RHETORIC.

    Philomathean: thank you!

  22. Yes, liberals have no issue using violence.

    They applaud it. They are very open about wanting white genocide. If that means punching Spencer or kicking his mom out of her home, they do it.

  23. Spencer’s attacker has been doxed. His name and other info is out there. He’s into sc*t and subbing, I saw pics of a girl squatting over him and his being led on a leash. That’s the Left for you.

  24. liberals have no issue using violence.

    But the Right is much better at it. Which is why the State has been suppressing it for decades.

    I asked “What happened to all of the masculine Leftists?” in that Questions post. In Weimar, leftists were war vets and factory workers. Today, they are bitches and freaks. The Left is like a woman who thinks that throwing a tantrum is consequence-free. The Right is masculine, it’s like gun owners knowing that it’s best to keep things polite for as long as possible lest they’ll be forced to unleash hell.

  25. That takes us back to cops and soldiers.

    Liberals are protected by both. White cops and soldiers happily accept that money to watch their backs.

    In an area filled with CCTV, FRS, and hundreds of witnesses (and cops), the police will not be able to find the suspect who hit Spencer. They don’t simply care.

  26. What do you see as effective way of reaching cops and soldiers or at least working around them? One way I see is top-down: who’s their boss determines whose agenda they serve.

    (I made “CCTV” a moderation trigger-word. Been getting lots of spam with that word)

  27. I think it’s the height of cowardice to sucker punch someone; total scumbaggery…..

    Ryu, according to PA, the perp has already been identified; or are you saying that they’ll go out of their way to NOT prosecute the guy?

  28. Going by what I see elsewhere, the alleged punch thrower looks like a youngish SJW, complete with the gamma face and twitter feed. Other twitter sources show an older looking guy on the receiving end of degrading acts. The punch itself wasn’t all that well thrown. He missed Spencer’s face and it looked like a glancing forearm blow to to his ear.

  29. The police don’t bother pursuing people for small time offenses like that. Spencer is fine. He has to take more precautions from here, though.
    Getting too worked up by every little thing liberals do and say makes us look bad. They are lashing out now, I think we should give them some space.

  30. I had never heard of Spencer until the degenerate welted him. Looks like he’s straight out of Dallas — surely he can handle a suckerpunch by a rusty pervert in a cape.

  31. To begin, cops and soldiers are not magical fairies.

    They are no different than ordinary people. Their primary concern is money, not “liberty” or “justice.” Those phrases are the public face – just like believing a barista likes working with people.

    I haven’t the slightest doubt that cops and soldiers would serve WN if we had enough money. Of course, that will never happen. The USG controls the financial system and has virtually unlimited money.

    Like anyone else, cops and soldiers can be reached through fear.

    All of them fear death. The media helps them hide this. They don’t show many dead pigs or triggermen. We don’t see the planes coming back from the Stan.

    There are DAAs capable of killing cops and getting away with it. There are levels above what Anders did. The man who got away with this was a virtual god. He is still free.

  32. If the Feds want him, they’ll have him very soon if not already. Is the “right” willing to make this case a Dreyfus Affair to the Federal Law Enforcement system, or are “crimethinkers” Caput Lupinum in the streets of the Imperial Capital?

  33. There are cases made elsewhere that Trump has an opportunity to make an example of the rioters and put them in prison for ten years each on federal felonies. Further, RICO can be applied on up to Soros himself, as interstate conspiracy is in play.

    No need to be concerned about making martyrs. The more pressing matter is for Trump to keep up his supporters’ morale. Inaction would demoralize them. Dreyfuss had a case for innocence going for him and France was a right wing law n order state then.

    Contemporary Left will only be more brazen if not hammered down.

  34. The rioters were street theater.
    A targeted attack on an Alt-right leader is another matter altogether. If Spencer is Caput Lupinum in the Imperial Capital now, then any of us are as well.

    The new President used his first full day to visit an agency of his own government. He did not use it to talk about the violence in the streets, nor did he talk about the past abuses of Federal prosecutions. He dumped Christie for at least one particular prosecution, so he is aware of the concept.

    Could his people not find one worthy man in the Federal prison system?

  35. I couldn’t believe Trump called his first press conference on a weekend, which alone is pretty rare stuff, to complain about the press’s inaugural crowd-size estimates. Then he outright lies about something that’s irrelevant and easily provably wrong!
    That is very, very petty. Very low rent.

  36. Trump’s detractors will have to get used to a lot more of this. He’s not in it to seek approval from liberals.

    This isn’t about Nikcrit but about libs in general. They made it happen, they forced our hands. Dole was literally hitler. Bush was literally hitler. McCain was literally hitler. Santorum was literally hitler. Romney was literally hitler. I’m sure they thought Ron Paul was literally hitler. And if jeb bush had gotten the GOP nomination, he’d have been literally hitler.

    But its more than just their unwillingness to moderate their rhetoric. It’s the fact that THEY made the first move in tribalizing this country along ideological lines and making enemies out of their fellow-American loyal opposition. They go to their Stank March in DC while excusing Hillary’s strong-arm acquittal of a child rapist, intimidating the girl, and later cackling about it. Who knows what else she’s covered up and enabled.

    Fuck the libs (except Nikcrit, who at least can carry a conversation with the opposition). Facebook has been great in one regard, and that’s in making it clear to me exactly which individuals in my life are in some regards dead to me… and this includes a close relative. Not because they voted DEM or dislike Trump, but because of the embrace of evil that their hatred for everything good and normal has whipped them into.

  37. Even good liberals needed to be brought down a few notches. They definitely started the race baiting, tribalizing, ridicle of anyone remotely conservative and now it is coming back at them in a big way.

  38. Back some 20 years ago, I went to visit a friend at Brandeis University outside Boston. Not being from MA, or at the time familiar with the rabid leftist progressive teachings at Brandeis, I was totally unprepared for the attacks I would get from my friend’s friends, who immediately condemned me as an enemy because I was not outwardly liberal enough. This judgement was made because I wore a nice sweater instead of communist drab garb. Point is, that I was a nice guy then, nothing remotely “conservatively antagonistic” about me. Experiences like this though have made me not a nice guy to libs, but still nice to people I love.

  39. Re: PA’s last comment: I’m not so much lib, but a NAM who is an ADULT. I accept the fact that the world is what is regardless of my convenience and personal preferences. I also know and accept that those who don’t agree with me 100% are worthy and omnipresent parts of my national citizenry and I’m also not give n to perpetual whining. I respect with humanity those who disagree with me and try to be sober and humble in being forward looking in creating a societal ‘greatrr good.”

  40. The D.C. march went through some black neighborhoods. Apparently, not all the residents were thrilled about it.

  41. @elk: just what it spells out, in this instance; i simply meant that I’m an adult in that i understand and expect that the world will proceed as it will regardless of my personal wishes or ethno-cultural convenience, unlike a lot of the cultural criticism you see nowadays, which is often little more than a disturbance and detour to one’s personal ethnodemographic ‘wish list.’

    I believe there’s practical and distinctly non-sanctimonious merit in engaging and debating and empathizing with oppositional ‘others,’ which the relative recent creation of online forums facilitates…. I say that such forums are important because even if it’s necessary to remain culturally at odds with said ‘other’, it’s nonetheless important to get a real and tangible sense of your nemesis; otherwise, one so often ends up feeling empty and enervated from standing-off from a social strawman, in which it’s easy for both one’s positive and negative passions to become devoid of passion and vitality, nee vitality.

    IMO, that is a real peril and something that befalls the political blog give-n-take often.

  42. So the Women’s March. Winona Judd sure as hell jumped the shark. What a bitch she turned out. And it shows, she looks worn out and tired, and not in a good way.

    Remember when she came on the scene 20 years ago, she was the bomb, a solid 9-and-a-quarter. And part of her charm and appeal was her ‘authentic’ hillbilly background which also did for her older sister.

    But the Women’s March, or as Anglin is calling it, the Half-a-Million Pussies March. In his article he emphasizes the symbolism of all those women wearing pink pussy hats on their heads. And that that symbolism is exactly what it is — Look at my pussy, Big Bad Daddy Donald!

    The irony of that symbolism is so obvious that it needs to be pointed out!

    So once again, h/t Anglin.

    The women wearing those hats will not say to themselves that they want to be seen as pussies — but then why else would they be wearing pussies on their heads?

  43. So important to control hate right now. Trump cannot protect everyone and the pushback will be even more ruthless than the Left already is. Don’t give up your position for a few moments of righteous indignation, no matter how good it will feel and be for your (temporary) mental state.

    Turn around in place. Help allies and sabotage enemies with plausible deniability. Strategic silence. I am in a heavily converged field in the most converged part of academia but there are dissidents here, some in very high positions. Everything I publish or award or promotion I get takes a spot away from a prog. I call it the reverse Alinsky. Small potatoes and there is a high chance of failure and exposure but what else can be done? Lord, may the days of deception end soon.

  44. “So the Women’s March. Winona Judd sure as hell jumped the shark. What a bitch she turned out. And it shows, she looks worn out and tired, and not in a good way.”

    I don’t like to fixate on the AR’s intersection with the manosphere, but the observation pointed out in my previous comment, which observation was a recap from TDS, i thought worth emphasizing, because Peak Absurdity.

    The Women’s March Costume is for them to wear on their heads a pussy. So that does that reveal about someone doing that?

  45. All “we” need now is one “heroic” cuckster to demand a “Men’s March” with a large dollop of deracination.

  46. Jesse Jackson liked Trump’s inauguration speech. I am getting the impression that African Americans are not nearly as upset about a Trump presidency as white liberals are.

  47. Yes, I agree with PA, but … one addendum, if it pleases the court.

    The problem with hate is that, as strong as it is, it can be chipped away by feelings of sympathy or altruism — which Hitler would contemptuously call foolish notions and dreams. I can easily imagine the Fuhrer striding into a Twenty-First Century and looking around at all the modern (liberal) Germans have done.

    Actually, Germany, then and now, is a great example of how society kowtows the line to whoever is in majority charge … in the 30s it was a right-winger, in the 2010s it’s a left-winger. But basically everyone is on side with whoever has the might.

    How can the alt-right take advantage of such phenomena? Easily. Consider the concept of a “tipping point” wherein once you break the 10%, double-digit barriers of proselytizing mass society, the rest of the dominoes come falling down in your direction.

    Think about the disintegration of the USSR (“evil Empire” — Reagan) and how once the 10% broke through totalitarian dissent-suppressors (mouth gags), they quickly won over the timid rest.

    Alt-right politics needs something to push it over the top.

  48. “I am getting the impression that African Americans are not nearly as upset about a Trump presidency as white liberals are.”

    Trump got 8% of the black vote in this election as opposed to Romney’s 2% four years ago. I’m guessing that Trump’s 8% is the best a GOP has done with the black vote since, perhaps, Nixon or maybe even earlier, with Eisenhower.

  49. I think Ashley Judd’s slam poetry performance represents some kind of zenith of SJW hysteria. Is there anything worse than this? Can it get worse?

  50. Men have gone soft. Complaining/nitpicking their cow cavalcade is exactly what they wanted. Almost worse than involvement. Be the unmitigated triumph you wish to see in the world. The shackled hens see things like an apparently pivotal figure of this movement clocked by a human toilet. They see imitation cafes full of cyborgs and unapologetic flab. They see themselves, from an inner and outer standpoint, and they are utterly disgusted.

    They want a well-crafted escapade, but don’t know how to communicate the subtleties of their desire. The liberal heist would give them a baby’s Total Freedom, but they’re craving to learn how to walk now. Huxley called this pitiful haze a long time back.

  51. — Oh look, the “teens” have struck again. (MGE)

    Just as I recently noticed how liberalism corrupts language by soiling innately upbeat words such as “youths,” “kids”, “teens” or “students,” it does so with a host of other categories of affirming words.

    Another one I noticed: “Historic.” As in “this was a historic occasion.” I just saw it in passing over some sports article that referenced a non-Western male name.

    The word should connote something important that happened along our people’s timeline. Instead, it is almost exclusively used to mark some non-White or feminist encroachment into our culture or our institutions.

    One of the things about the tagline “We don’t have to live like this” — liberalism has no legitimacy and first in our minds, and soon in action and in restored social arrangements, we will reclaim everything that’s ours and clean it of alien hand-prints.

    “Youths” et al. will be ours again.

  52. ” In today’s forcibly desegregated West, this is how Whites feel about liberated Blacks when we get close enough to get on each others’ nerves.”

    Are you black, PA?
    I somehow guess only a black would write that (but a black on the alt right looks unlikely, so I really don’t know).

  53. ““[Existential Hate] can also be expressed as hostility toward anyone more successful or beautiful.” I had more written on this in a draft, but trimmed it for the final post. There is a lot more that can be said about this.”

    I hope a future post will have all what you can say about the topic, I find it interesting.

    It’s interesting, also, that you say “ANYONE” who is successful or beautiful.

    Since we tend to replicate our genes, I think there can be existential hate for the people whose personality and demeanor are opposite to ours (or to what we imagine ours be like!) especially if we always see our kind be defeated and theirs prevail.
    If this is the case, one won’t be hating all the successful and “beautiful”, but some of them.

    Another kind of existential hate is that which you feel for who existentially hates you.
    Basically, I had to leave Twitter because what certain groups of people wrote against “white males” without incurring bans/shaming/appropriate retorts, well, I couldn’t stomach it (I couldn’t stand the meanness and insincerity of it): you stumble upon it the whole time, it’s not a rare incident.

    In some people’s mind. Existential hate takes a strange shape: they start worshiping those who they subconsciously envy, and turn the hate to themselves.
    This is self-hating people, of course they’re not aware of it.

    Yet one more kind of existential hate particularly relevant to today’s cultural scene.
    The kind that is on the part of people who certainly feel, and are, more successful and “superior”.
    Why hate your lower/who you think is your lower?

    ********************************************

    I see you aren’t black. There were only 2 ways you’d make that comment on sensory hate: being a black, or being someone who feels sensory repulsion for blacks.
    I bet on the first 😀

    I don’t feel sensory repulsion for blacks, my repulsion happens along other lines (you know, those people, who although in different % are in all races, who live primarily for imposing their will on their neighbor and having their orders obeyed. Since a lot of very beautiful women get their minds intoxicated with power, a lot of them awake sensory repulsion in me. I am sure it’s not existential hate (most men who hate beauties are men who used to crave beauties still more than the average man, and gave up after rejection #500) since I have no problems with non-arrogant beauties.

    Actually, beauties who started dating me those who inspire me existential hate (sensory it is when I see them as strangers: close contact makes it escalate)
    I can’t stand brains drunk with power.

    This is people who will receive a chat message every 5 minutes, send one every 15, and, THE FIRST TIME you reply after 15 minutes will have a temper tantrum on the lines of “OK, I see you don’t want to chat, goodbye”.

    Or object to any statement you make and, as soon as you make the same kind of obcetion to a statement they made (all equal, just “mirrored”) say something like “so rude! You always want to win arguments!”.

    I know they are fully unaware of their double standards and arrogance — I’ve very rarely seen a bully who knows they are a bully, and never a female bully who knows she’s a bully; still I’d feel much better if they were shipped to another solar system.
    More than them, I hate the fact that we have to stay all on the same planet ;).

    Hope I provided something useful for a possible future post on Existential hate. If this is off-topic, delete it.

  54. And I cannot imagine what it’s like to be gay; i’m sure there’s a sense of natural ‘outcaste’ status that at times becomes overwhelming.

    I don’t know man, some days I think I got the better end of the deal. At least that’s what I think when I watch these women’s march antics. How can these white women turn on their men like that? It’s so shameful.

  55. So important to control hate right now. Trump cannot protect everyone and the pushback will be even more ruthless than the Left already is. Don’t give up your position for a few moments of righteous indignation, no matter how good it will feel and be for your (temporary) mental state.

    Turn around in place. Help allies and sabotage enemies with plausible deniability. Strategic silence. I am in a heavily converged field in the most converged part of academia but there are dissidents here, some in very high positions. Everything I publish or award or promotion I get takes a spot away from a prog. I call it the reverse Alinsky. Small potatoes and there is a high chance of failure and exposure but what else can be done? Lord, may the days of deception end soon. – Nozdryov

    Yes, this is an important point. It’s clear that a cultural pivot has occurred and it is only the beginning, with ramifications well beyond the United States. Nevertheless, swamp-draining will take time and there will be pools of crocodiles around for a while. I’m also involved in SJW converged circumstances and the poker-face you describe is my day-to-day norm. You can’t shit where you eat, and it won’t to us any good if you do something careless you can’t afford to do. That said, I am noticing an effect of sun coming out from behind the clouds. The fear is lifting.

  56. Hate is a synonym for “truth” when a commie says it. As in, “hate speech.”

    Try it. It works every time.

    (((Commies))) hate truth. Literally.

  57. In the perfect order, one can only truly hate that which is emphatically Evil or in the service thereof. Anything less is uncivilized posturing.

    In case of a mad debate over what is emphatically Evil, look to see who is most predisposed to self-annihilation because finding the source of “white” genocide is only half-framed.

  58. “then try to obscure faces”

    Would there have been any reason to have any doubt about the identity of the rapists either way? I once read something about the total rapes by Swedes or Norwegians in a given year being zero, no rounding.

    Multikult’s m.o. is unclear here. If they want Europeans to live in a state of dread, then why the apparently sincere efforts to polish the invaders’ image?

    If Swedes’ (or Whites’) clean image is a problem, how difficult is it to actually get a native or an Eastern European staged as a Swede to commit some outrageous acts?

    But if the rapes are a liability to the program, then it wouldn’t be that hard for the state to send a message to muds in such a way that they’d behave.

    Most likely, Multikult is playing whack-a-mole and falling behind. They have no faith in the program and increasingly, less and less control over the events.

  59. Would there have been any reason to have any doubt about the identity of the rapists either way? I once read something about the total rapes by Swedes or Norwegians in a given year being zero, no rounding.

    I think in 2013 in Malmo, Sweden (population around 300K) you had the police being forced to admit that something like 50 out of 50 stranger rapes were all committed by those of Muslim immigrant background.

  60. Regarding the Katie Rich tweet. Has it been confirmed that she has been fired? Apparently her name was not on the credits of the last show, and also Trump is connected with Lorne Michaels or something so he would have made it happen.

    In any case what a mean-spirited woman. The implication of her tweet was that Barron might shoot his father, or that he was just a crazy looking kid.

    The “migrants” in Sweden live streaming the rape. It is a native Swedish girl, of course?

    How graphic and explicit is the available content?

  61. Regarding the Katie Rich tweet. Has it been confirmed that she has been fired?

    She’s been suspended indefinitely. There’s something else we need to confirm about her, if you hear before I do please post it.

    The “migrants” in Sweden live streaming the rape. It is a native Swedish girl, of course?

    How graphic and explicit is the available content?

    According to the Daily Mail, the police themselves never even had the live stream saved, they will get it eventually. I’ve checked multiple article and it seems that only video portion available is the last few seconds, when lots of viewers finally realized what was going on and grabbed the last moments and what they captured actually showed police arriving:

  62. That rodent-face looks like an older version of Clockboy.

    He doesn’t look imposing or intimidating.

    The guy next to him with the fancy modern-looking gun (it’s a nine, right?) looks every bit the cholo. Are the cartels in Sweden now too? Sometimes Mexicans in their looks are 99.9% indistinguishable from Arabs.

    But as it turns out, the Cartels, Mexican and others from that part of the world, are expanding into Africa and Europe. Apparently their criminal superstructure has evolved and adapted quite fittingly into global circumstances. They are players, and eager to make their mark and hash it out with the Big Boys.

    The picture of those two Arabs having fun though, touches on that theme that i like to bring up, of how the immivasion is the Theme of their Young Lives. It is their version of the European Tour. It is their Hero Quest.

    It is the Purpose which animates them and activates a feedback loop with which they are winning.

  63. The guy next to him with the fancy modern-looking gun (it’s a nine, right?)

    No, it’s a revolver.. Looks like a .357 or .38.

  64. Forgive me, but i’m just not sure what the katie rich tweet means; “first homeschool shooter”? I don’t get the pun, however inappropriate.

    FWIW, I think it’s beyond the pale to use kids in partisan spoofing of any sort. Even if it’s harmless innuendo that involves no figurative or imaginative violence.

  65. Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.

    Forgive me, but i’m just not sure what the katie rich tweet means; “first homeschool shooter”? I don’t get the pun, however inappropriate.

    As you know, nikcrit, its meaning is up for grabs.

    The whole “what does a statement mean” is a post-modern subject that you and I, and Katie Rich too, are quite well enough versed in.

    So what does it mean, then? I suggested an interpretation in my previous comment.

    Its specific innuendo IS vague. And as it turns out, Barron is not home-schooled.

    But that is irrelevant. It is to me suggestive of patricide and assassination, and shooting children — bad things.

    And the predictable leftist defense that it is in humor or irony, is weak — because humor and irony require an appropriate context. And the context is exactly inappropriate.

    So it is another (excellent) example of the Left misreading the zeitgeist. Perfectly misreading it, as it were.

    ************

    It is deliberately vague, in my estimation. Rich probably thought that such vagueness made it ok.

  66. She apologized for it and may have lost her job over it. I think people should just let it go.

    How about instead they can let it go after she loses her job.

    And even then why should it be let go? She has revealed what she thinks about Trump voters.

    Trump voters need to NOT take the high road. Trump voters need to act as if their enemies are out to get them — which they are.

  67. It is not known that Rich has suffered any real world consequences at all (except omission on one credits).

    To let it go now, is to be a complete puss out.

    Being such a pushover as that, is what has led us to this mess in the first place. The stakes of this culture war are real.

    When an AR sympathizer loses his or her job over a tweet, it is necessary that a Leftist suffer comparable consequences, or more.

    This is not a parlour game, this culture war.

  68. The “homeschool” thing with Barron is also obliquely aimed at the rumor that he is special needs. Rosie O’Donnell had been passing that idea around at one point.

  69. “To let it go now, is to be a complete puss out.”

    I don’t know about that; it seems when the left does something that the mainstream consensually agrees was over the line, it may not be wise to go tit-for-tat in terms of p.c. payback.

    Doing so in some ways validates the p.c. oppression; i.e., in debating how to deal with Rich, you can practically hear someone on the right saying “Why, if someone from the right made such a crack, the p.c. crowd would go crazy in demanding she be fired and chastised, etc.”

    No, it’s to some extent a no-win situation —– but ultimately, I say rise above the payback; in the same vein, I think it was wrong to fire the University of Missouri female professor who demanded protesters ‘get some muscle’ to remove a student reporter; to do otherwise, i.e., go the route they did and fire her somewhat justifies the profoundly feeble circumstances surrounding the transgression.

    So it’s not exactly the same in this circumstance; slanderous spoof of a newly elected ‘First Son.”

    I say if Rich must go, it should be expressly for the violent tone and innuendo to the slur —- not to just the slur, PER SE!

  70. I say if Rich must go, it should be expressly for the violent tone and innuendo to the slur —- not to just the slur, PER SE!

    Should it be the target of the joke, though? that’s a 10 year-old kid.

    A GOP staffer had to resign a few years ago for criticizing the “classless” attire of Sasha and Malia.

    Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re both in those awful teen years, but you’re a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play. Then again your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the ‘good role model’ department. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised public events.

  71. but ultimately, I say rise above the payback; in the same vein, I think it was wrong to fire the University of Missouri female professor who demanded protesters ‘get some muscle’ to remove a student reporter; to do otherwise, i.e., go the route they did and fire her somewhat justifies the profoundly feeble circumstances surrounding the transgression.

    Hmmmm. Well we know how “get some muscle over here” would be handled if the politics of the participants was reversed.

    But I don’t see how the University could have kept that lady on staff in any way – there’s potentially a legal/assault issue – it’s not just verbal or online harassment that the University can decide on by whatever whimsy it sees fit.

  72. One of the things that attracted me to the conservative side was the lack of constant offense taking. I prefer people speak freely.

  73. I like it when liberals act up. We should encourage it. I didn’t think that professor should have been fired, either.

  74. “One of the things that attracted me to the conservative side was the lack of constant offense taking. I prefer people speak freely.”

    Yeah, conversely, one of things that I found intolerable even in the placid center-left was this litigious sense of caution toward language; EVERY utterance was either suspect or finely parsed and vetted for public consumption.

    And if you slipped up, the larger context be damned: you are/is racist/sexist/fascist/elitist solely by dint of your words. Coincidental and/or unfortunate phrases or formations be damned.

    I remember the p.c. environment at a daily newspaper I worked at in the early 90s; this was that peak-p.c. era in terms of mandatory sensitivity training and its likes; a lot of the material and exercises we did then would seem comical or at the very least awkwardly overheated today.

  75. One of the things that attracted me to the conservative side was the lack of constant offense taking. I prefer people speak freely.

    Excuse me for getting personal, Lara, but as you know i can be a bitch.

    You are, quite simply, missing the point. It is not about taking offense, it is about punishing your opponents.

    As it happens i do take offense because i am a lopsided and mutilated emotional creature. And you see things in terms of taking offense because you are a woman and see things through their emotional implications and the attached social drama.

    Well-balanced and effective men in the world do not give a shit, about “offense taking”.

    Well-balanced and effective men measure actions and their consequences by their real-world results.

    And the result of letting go other people’s punishable actions, is the perception of weakness and results in more of the same.

    Get it? Seriously, do you get it. It is not about being offended, it is about the results that can be gained with the weapons that are available in this cultural war. Which weapons are emotions aka taking offense.

  76. But I don’t see how the University could have kept that lady on staff in any way – there’s potentially a legal/assault issue – it’s not just verbal or online harassment that the University can decide on by whatever whimsy it sees fit.

    What he said.

    It is assault, what she did. Likely a misdemeanor but leave that to the courts.

    Characterizing the circumstances as “feeble” is inaccurate, in my humble opinion.

    It was a charged situation and a racial one at that, with young men involved and black ones. And she asked them to come on over in the capacity of “muscle” and what is more, the universities are sold to their students as safe places.

    In the real world, i think that people should be allowed to duke it out, under certain circumstances. But the law is the law, and it is designed to protect people who don’t know better, and love em or hate em that includes university students.

  77. “One of the things that attracted me to the conservative side was the lack of constant offense taking. I prefer people speak freely.”

    On a chess forum I visit there’s one page where we all talk politics – it’s pretty brutal left vs. right, with some name calling, teasing, everything else. It’s really fun.

    But it’s ok and we all laugh about it at the end because it’s all white males. No one goes off screeching about anything, Republican or Democrat.

  78. “Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised public events.”

    That is a great clip — and good advice to boot.

    Presumably it was in response to the picture with it above, wherein one can nearly see up their skirts?

    Actually they look (physically) not bad for black teenagers … if they would dress with class, they might be able to land a white guy.

    Their ensemble is terrible. Yeah teenage girls all have an awkward peer pressure phase, but some girls have a knack and a flair for dress and some do not. That grey shitshirt thing? uh straight outta the 80s and worse, the suburbs.

    The main thing is that the skirts are too short — and they are on a stage. That is disrespectful to the father — and when that father is the President, that has political implications.

    But they couldn’t be criticized because sensitive girls have feelings.

  79. “It was a charged situation and a racial one at that, with young men involved and black ones. And she asked them to come on over in the capacity of “muscle” and what is more, the universities are sold to their students as safe places.”

    I ask you to Google that clip again; I say you’ll see that “charged” is simply more than a bit overblown. And “feeble” was quite apt, especially if you choose to put it in the context of the kind of day-to-day collegiate protest agit-prop one routinely sees in the commons area at any state university, on your way to the Union building, to buy a malt or perhaps a Snickers bar.

    Precious nothing was really at state their, from what I recall. IDK. Maybe it was a bit more dramatic than usual. But I recall thinking: ‘much ado about nothing’ when first seeing the clip. The prof’s on-display silliness was arguably punishment enough; that display should’ve been enough to prompt her to change her beliefs and ways.

  80. I saw a tweet about the boy that may as well have been written by P*d*sta if you get what I’m saying. This needs to be stopped right off, in the most severe way.

    There are also questions: are we fellow Americans of a polity that can be reconciled, or are we headed for escalated conflict? My sense is that there is a core constituency on the Left that sees normal Americans as something repulsive to be incinerated. Their feelings are of religious intensity. A significant portion of lib venom is projected onto the boy.

    This is an intuitive conjecture, but I’ll throw it out there, because what I’ve seen of P*zz*g*te on that WP blog, whether or not there is fire to go with the smoke: a smaller but more central core of a core lib insider crew was looking forward to the legalization of p*d*phiIia and their fury comes from frustrated anticipation.

    I’m disguising key words because I’m getting increased web search traffic lately and would rather avoid this type of traffic.

  81. I ask you to Google that clip again; I say you’ll see that “charged” is simply more than a bit overblown.

    Maybe so, I agree with your opinion. But that’s just an opinion. You can bet 100% that the school’s legal counsel advised them to fire Melissa Click on such a widely covered case, though.

  82. Cam,
    If any women, Jews or people of color joined that group the dynamic would change. Political discussions then lose their fun, good natured feel and become personal. There of course are exceptions to this (Nikcrit for instance), but not many in my experience.

  83. “You can bet 100% that the school’s legal counsel advised them to fire Melissa Click on such a widely covered case, though.”

    Yeah, you’re right; that’s something that i easily and often overlook: the mere ‘viralness’ alone, just how many people saw that clip, was enough to ensure her fate. And from that perspective, my point means zero; i.e., it doesn’t matter if, in precious theory, she didn’t ‘deserve’ to be fired. Rather, it was the Youtube view count that predicated the axe for her.

    That’s humbling; you could see how that realpolitik could come to bite just about anyone in the ass, with probably not that much foresight into how to avoid such a fate, too.

  84. Everyone KNOWS dysfunctional relationship.

    Only a tolerance for defines the individual difference.

    But those who impress a virulent taboo on separation are the craziest of the crazies.

    There is after alt-rite AND NOT Final Liberation.

  85. “Homeschooling” is the real threat because it represents an individual separation. Yet, it can also be the tip of Uncle Beast’s tentacle when “homeschool” is nothing more than school at home. So Barron is just a convenient segue into the perpetuating of this dubious dialectic. The conclusion to be drawn is that Barron SHOULD STAY at home to be schooled so that his potentially homicidal tendencies are confined to mere patricide… Or, end-game anti-racism in the modern lexicon. This “homeschooled” anti-racism leading to patricide is the foretold evil of individual separation.

    They build the Narrative and some are martyred for it.

    “Liberation without separation.” — “Perfect” Parasite

  86. Thor,
    Howsabout ‘liberation with and/or without separation’ for those whose being is comprised of what you wish to separate?

    I’ll patiently wait for your cogent, direct and clear answer…

  87. you could see how that realpolitik could come to bite just about anyone in the ass, with probably not that much foresight into how to avoid such a fate, too.

    She wasn’t a sympathetic figure, neither.

  88. PA: “This is an intuitive conjecture, but I’ll throw it out there, because what I’ve seen of P*zz*g*te on that WP blog, whether or not there is fire to go with the smoke: a smaller but more central core of a core lib insider crew was looking forward to the legalization of p*d*phiIia and their fury comes from frustrated anticipation.”

    I would say the National Geographic Fifth Element boy-girl cover was set to run in complete faith that Hillary would win– and should be taken as documentary proof of the Left’s intentions for her term.

  89. nikcrit: “I remember the p.c. environment at a daily newspaper I worked at in the early 90s; this was that peak-p.c. era in terms of mandatory sensitivity training and its likes; a lot of the material and exercises we did then would seem comical or at the very least awkwardly overheated today.”

    I was a freshman devouring Paglia’s “Sex, Art, and American Culture” at that same time, yet I’m often curious when fellow observers look back upon the early 90s as the PEAK of political correctness.

    I got slammed with a sexual harassment accusation 93 in for white-knight gallantly kissing the back of a girl’s hand (thankfully, I wasn’t actually interested in her so at least I didn’t lose much pride– a few months later she had the nerve to ask me for help with her homework), and I remember Paglia faced a screaming mob of girls at Brown University, but I don’t recall anything like the charged atmosphere of violence we’ve been living with for some time now.

    Also, four years ago Barack Obama campaigned on the proposition that marriage is only between a man and a woman. Four years later– and I say it not to the detriment of our fearless chief, who indeed is gloriously WINNING this week– but “gay marriage” is apparently some sort of third rail holy grail of “human rights” such that, quite frankly, even Alt-Right blogs don’t expend much venom upon it. This is a Reign of Terror-level paradigm shift, and insofar as it is utterly ahistorical, unnatural, and ungodly, those damn state issued boyfriend-and-girlfriend certificates MUST be torn apart

  90. I was dubious about the Right’s claims that the Left was pushing to normalize pedophilia.

    It would seem too obviously a step too far.

    But then with Shia the mentally ill unemployed jew in the news, the video he made with the 12-year old girl came across and what else is that, but such a “push.”

  91. I have suggested, that the Age of Consent be the Age of Majority, and that is the end of story.

    I came up with that idea on a lark (as a joke), but then the more i come to think about it, the more right it seems.

    Such social prescriptions are never that simple. But as far as it goes, and dealing with such a complex issue, it IS a good starting point.

  92. It is also ironic to note, that the taboos around the topic of age appropriate sex, are every bit as much in place in the AR and the manosphere, as anywhere else — and moreso, perhaps.

    And the case might be made that they ought to be. And hence my suggestion.

  93. Lucius on p.c. levels of intensity: “I remember Paglia faced a screaming mob of girls at Brown University, but I don’t recall anything like the charged atmosphere of violence we’ve been living with for some time now.”

    I think one can make the argument that p.c. rhetoric was more persistent and insidious in everyday life back in the 90s because its policies weren’t yet at critical mass; but now that it’s achieved many victories in everyday civil society, it’s ironically not as prevalent in a rhetorically in-your-face way. IOW: it acheived its goals and is now a default norm in terms of modes of civil-society conduct.

    So, we’re both right in a way: P.C. Is more pernicious but actually quieter because it’s now meta.

  94. I think one can make the argument that p.c. rhetoric was more persistent and insidious in everyday life back in the 90s because its policies weren’t yet at critical mass;

    I think you’re exactly right, Nik. There was a huge flurry of PC on campuses and in media back rooms in the early 90’s.

    Remember the movie PCU that PA and I discussed recently? It came out in 1994.

    The difference between then and today is that campus leftism has now crossed over into the mainstream due to the arrival of Obama.
