All people are guided by two kinds of morality: their innate moral compass which is part instinct and part culture/upbringing, and what we can call “Display Morality.” Some Westerners are unsteady on their Display Morality. Normies, boomers, people who aren’t of the national Right, aren’t sure how to signal in situations like Richmond, where the primary objective is to secure the 2A and the secondary objective is to secure the 4th generation warfare claim on moral high ground. In error, they fight for a good cause with faulty Display Morality. It’s possible that the Feds anticipated that, which is why they pulled the aikido move of not crushing the patriots in the kill box.
The identitarian spirit is there. What’s missing is clarity on moral first-causes. No one actually believes in anti-racism or in demon-tranny right of access to children. But with alien fiddles playing their tune all through the decades of the Cold War via their monopoly on media, Westerners’ sense of Display Morality has became deformed. Especially that of Boomers, who were force-fed the Civil Rights theater in their youth.
Addendum for perspective: I don’t know what the rally was like and how prevalent those cuckservative banners were. One can’t rule out the clowns in the photo above being Antifa with new instructions. But one way or another, the Left’s Communist program is not stopping until it’s stopped. The national spirit is there and in the course of events it will mature. One anecdote from Mendo:
One such story was an older gent and his son who had to park faraway and walk towards the event, when a cab pulled up and asked if they were going to the rally. They said they were and he gave them a lift. When they got out, they were gonna pay and the cab driver said he supports patriots and didn’t charge them.
And a comment by Suburban_elk, which should be quoted in full:
The linked Anglin DS article on the Virginia rally is really good. I got two points, in response to it.
1. The rally goers’ main problem is brilliantly presented: We are fighting for our guns, so that we can protect our guns.. Hahahahahaha
Obv they need something more than that, to fight for. And without that thing being explicitly themselves and their families, what are they left with, except to fight for “muh our way of life” and that presents its problems because, it’s not explicit enough, mainly. A way of life is too much values and not enough blood; or at least it can be manipulated into such.
Anglin suggests that the answer of what to fight for, is God. Hard to argue with that, but on the other hand, as an answer it leaves quite a bit to be desired..
Here is what PA says —
No one actually believes in anti-racism (or demon-tranny right to read books to children). They just don’t have a grounding in proper Display Morality. An injured sense of identity, to be repaired.
I disagree that no-one believes in anti-racism, but leave that for another time. It is absolutely the case that our Identity as White Westerners is in bad shape. Display Morality is an interesting concept, worth exploring. A healthy display, is a health mind and body.
2. The second point I have regarding the DS take on the Virginia rally, is quite simply that the (White) people there weren’t as fat and ugly, as made out to be by the DS crowd. The old adage of, you find what you seek. Memes were made of the worst looking people; those pictured meme people are not representative specimens.
Or are they? I wasn’t there, I watched a half-hour on the livestream. I saw that there were any number of regular looking people. Yeah America is obese and “over-saturated” with chemicals and fats and plastic and hormone disruptors and the rest.
But to the point: There were guys who looked more the part of men.
Those people, are less inclined to be in front of the camera, for starters.
