Anonymous Conservative links to an article in which an editor of a left-wing news site is quoted saying that Sweden should be filled with Islamic terrorists so that anti-immigration, rural, working class Swedes are forced into exile. His observation of Leftists’ nature as reflected in that editor’s genocidal wish:
Leftists are designed to embrace the out-group, adopt its ideals and mores, embrace its culture, and turn on their own as means of facilitating migration to the out-group’s lands, should resources fall short at home. It is r-strategy 101.
What I have been wondering is, how could we present to leftists evidence that they are out-groups to their own lands, and we view them as our out-groups, as way of triggering these urges in reverse, so they will ally with their own nations? […]
We don’t rape, we don’t murder, we try to be reasonable and friendly, we don’t engage in violence, and so on. We talk about being different [from Leftists], but we don’t tangibly act different.
It makes me wonder if we created an alt-right subculture, obsessed with fight-club-like violence, with leaders picked through fighting tournaments, with celebrations of violence and misogyny, with a noticeable push to humorously break political correctness barriers, and so on, whether many leftists would embrace it due to their Stockholm-Syndrome-like urges being tripped.
He offers one example of such a subculture:
I was reading /pol and was struck by how many leftists post, saying they showed up there, and were initially shocked by the scene, only to have been fascinated and converted to alt-right red-pillers…
Given their psychological template, Leftists will side with a group that is even more frightening and alien than the non-Whites they are allied with. Their instinct compels them to seek out or invite, and then submit to, members of the scariest out-group.
For similar reasons, Weimar-era NSDAP, with its street-brawler reputation, recruited more easily from the ranks of rival Communists than from among conservatives.
I intuited this aspect of human nature immediately after Breivik’s raid. An NRx blogger wrote that Breivik should have recruited, not killed, the young Communists. In the comments, I offered the possibility that like it or not, the Norwegian’s boldness, combined with his iconically handsome photo, is a form of recruitment.
Telling Leftists that Che Guevara raped women, executed homosexuals, and most damningly of all, held blacks in low esteem (“The negro is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities”) only makes them admire him more.
But let’s come down to everyday applications of othering ourselves from Leftists to at least shut them up, if not recruit them. For example, if they bring up President Trump:
- Leftist: “Trump’s a nahzee!”
- Reasonable man: “You do know that his daughter is Jewish?”
- You: [with a knowing smile] “Yes, he is.”
On the subject of Trump’s connections:
- Leftist: “I hate Bannon. He’s a White supremacist.”
- Reasonable man: “He headlined a fundraiser for black entrepreneurs!”
- You: [with a gleam in your eye] “Yes, he is.”
Or fake news:
- Leftist: “Assange is a Russian agent.”
- Reasonable man: “Wrong! he released 800,000 files on Russia.”
- You: [gazing beyond the horizon] “Slava Rossiyii. Urrah.”
