The Dark Age

kek-kalki2

Just in case you didn’t notice, we do in fact live in a dark age. The Dark Age even. Capital letters, fam. Kali Yuga.

Everywhere that the golden light of Truth ought to be shining in glory, we are instead mired in the misery of our conditions, conditions which have persisted since time immemorial and which seem to only get worse. Conditions that blind us, conditions that warp us, conditions that force us to cope in ways we hardly think about anymore since we’ve become so accustomed to debasement. The world’s most fantastically wealthy society, in which men live with luxuries and wonders as those the ancients described their gods as having, is the most miserable and unhappy, the most inefficient at reproducing itself, and the most susceptible to destruction by both invading forces and internal rot.

Where did it all go wrong? Was it Obamacare? The sexual revolution of the 1960s? World War II? World War I? The French Revolution? The American Revolution? The English Civil War? The fall of Constantinople? The fall of Rome? The Bronze Age Collapse? Animal husbandry?

You didn’t choose to be born into this. You didn’t pick your family, your tribe, your race. You didn’t have a say in your upbringing. You didn’t really pick the people you’ve met along the way. You didn’t always believe what you believe now. You might like to think you had an awakening and discovered all of your principles in one flash of illumination and have kept them as diligently as the soldier at Pompeii, but you haven’t. And even had you kept them, you are just throwing yourself against the storm.

No one really wakes up one day and decides they want to participate in the eternal struggle for mastery. You are drafted and conscripted into it, and probably spend half the time doubting the whole thing. But that’s how having faith works. You doubt.

You shouldn’t be in this war. You cannot win this war. Your brothers are not who they say are. Why do you fight?

I don’t have all the answers. I just know there are those who want to destroy us because that’s what they’ve made it their lives’ work to do. They probably don’t know why either. You don’t know why. I know you have your theories; I have my theories. They don’t care about them. We’re both the same enemy to them, and knowing our differences is just a matter of tactics for them.

Oh sure, we can intellectualize it all, and explain all fancily with our neologisms and social commentary and analysis, but at the end of the day, you don’t really know what the hell is going on or how it got so bad, or really how to fix it. You’ve just got your theories, and thought you were supposed to have your allies.

Either you fight and win and pass the torch on to those closer to the end of the Dark Age, or you take it and burn everything down and lose, damning those coming after you to something worse.

Think about what you actually want. Decide what you stand for and who you stand with. When you essentially say that someone is corrupted by the Dark Age and cannot serve Truth in any capacity whatsoever, you could be talking about anyone. Yourself even. Because whatever it is that makes you think you’re holding the high ground, it isn’t nearly high enough. Victory has not arrived.

How do you get there? Do you get there by tearing down everyone reaching for it but falling short? Or do you stand against those trying to make sure you don’t reach it at all?

Do you believe we are faced with total destruction or not? The city is burning, so let’s debate the firefighters on whether or not they’ve got the best equipment for the job.

Look at You, You’re the Fake News Now

sphere-chess.jpg

The meme war continues to twist and turn mere days into 2017, and Trump continues to ravage the left at trans-dimensional backgammon. I know, I know; ascribing Trump’s broadsides to 4-D chess is overused and generally a big-if-true kind of deduction, but hear me out.

The mainstream media came up with the “fake news” moniker to describe the horribly bad clickbait outlets that were posting sensationalized lies on real-ish sounding URLs during the 2016 election. For example, if you read that Hillary Clinton had been arrested from a site with a URL like abcnewsnow(.)com, and then proceeded to share it on Facebook and Twitter, you got pranked. A lot of low information conservatives, especially boomers, had a propensity for consuming fake news, and discrediting those blatantly false sources thus also served to discredit the politics of the people who were reading them.

Because perception matters more than reality, the ideology of those baited was ridiculed as something as stupid as its lowest-information followers. The meme became that Trump voters were a bunch of village idiots being fed a steady diet of fake news from Russian shills or something like that. But liberals expanded fake news to include just about anything conservatives believed about Clinton, terrorism, illegal immigration, etc. In doing so they created their own fake news mindset, where truth mattered far less than weaponized perceptions.

But those people lost; Trump won. And now he’s beginning to turn the screws on them. At his first press conference this year, he rejected the questioning of a mewling CNN reporter, labeling the outlet as “fake news.” The linguistic kill-shot has returned. Just as the patriots melted down statues of the king to make ammunition, Trump has taken the left’s memes away from them.

Skinning the Invisible Knapsack, Part 4 of 5

conquistadors

Among schoolgoys, there is a rather vindictive prank one can do to a classmate who has left his backpack or bookbag unattended, known as skinning. The bag is emptied of its contents, turned inside out, and then zipped back up with all of its contents inside.

In 1988, Peggy McIntosh published one of the seminal works in the far-left dominated academic field which has come to be called “Whiteness Studies” in a number of circles. “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack,” is an excerpt taken from a working paper produced by the women’s studies department of Wellesley College, and lists 50 “daily effects of white privilege” in the first-person perspective of the author from her experiences. Though McIntosh tried to cover herself by claiming her examples shouldn’t be generalized, her work is obviously not read that way in the identity politics dominated Obama years. If even some of these privileges existed in the 1980s, you would be hard pressed to find them now. A sacred text of the anti-white/third worldist/regressive left, Invisible Knapsack could use a good skinning. Here is a critical assessment of privileges 31-40.

  1. I can choose to ignore developments in minority writing and minority activist programs, or disparage them, or learn from them, but in any case, I can find ways to be more or less protected from negative consequences of any of these choices.

I see them spammed nonstop in the mainstream media. In fact, their opinions are given much more weight as authentic truth than anything someone with white or male or cishet privilege could produce. All major (and minor) Western universities go out of their way to both produce and emphasize these perspectives.

  1. My culture gives me little fear about ignoring the perspectives and powers of people of other races.

If by my culture you mean the mainstream American public opinion that is tailored by a few dozen media outlets, then I am made aware very frequently how problematic it is to not submit to the moral authority of other tribes’ experiences.

  1. I am not made acutely aware that my shape, bearing or body odor will be taken as a reflection on my race.

Look if you are of a certain ethnicity and you eat food associated with that ethnicity you are going to have a specific body odor and people will correctly make the correlation. Deal with it. Oh and genetics has an influence on body type—so you can expect there to be racial and/or ethnic traits.

  1. I can worry about racism without being seen as self-interested or self-seeking.

I will be told I have a White savior complex, no matter how hard I cuck. I need to just shut up and listen, and do what I am told to the letter in order to be a “good” ally, i.e. a politically domesticated White person. On the other hand, if I don’t worry about racism, I am racist because silence is consent and I am collectively and congenitally guilty for not speaking out against it.

  1. I can take a job with an affirmative action employer without having my co-workers on the job suspect that I got it because of my race.

Right, because I am literally ineligible for affirmative action programs, i.e. diversity hiring. Literally. As a White male I cannot be a diversity hire. No one would suspect I was hired for diversity purposes any more than they would suspect I am actually two chimps in a human costume. This doesn’t sound like an unearned privilege, it sounds like an undeserved penalty—that I am ineligible by birth for certain positions in the workplace. It’s on people of color to fight this “privilege,” not me.

  1. If my day, week or year is going badly, I need not ask of each negative episode or situation whether it had racial overtones.

I mean, there is an angry White male stereotype… and if you aren’t a kale-munching Democrat numale you are probably going to get people accusing you of it.

awm

  1. I can be pretty sure of finding people who would be willing to talk with me and advise me about my next steps, professionally.

Don’t even get me started on how every profession semi-skilled or higher has some kind of racial or ethnic umbrella organization or association, except for whitey. Working-class Whites get nothing—and the liberal theory is that we don’t need any kind of ethnocentric networking because apparently deracinated elite WASPs are going to hand us jobs for being White.

  1. I can think over many options, social, political, imaginative or professional, without asking whether a person of my race would be accepted or allowed to do what I want to do.

A better question would be to ask how much affirmative action you will get—zero if you are not part of a protected class. You can pick any industry or bureaucracy in the country and game their affirmative action program if you are eligible, and should they commit the odious transgression of not having one, make a big a stink about it until they cave. Because if anyone has the nerve to say that an x can’t do y in the current year, it will be an international incident.

  1. I can be late to a meeting without having the lateness reflect on my race.

This is true. But this is an earned stereotype as result of collective good behavior, which requires maintenance by individuals belonging to the in-group. Different cultures value time and the very concept of time differently; read about the folkways of the Puritan colonists if you don’t believe me, or the Mexican concept of the siesta. This is literally a thing—different peoples perceive and use time differently.

  1. I can choose public accommodation without fearing that people of my race cannot get in or will be mistreated in the places I have chosen.

Yes. We make the best tenants, guests, and customers. This is another earned stereotype. Sorry about that! We will try to be more of a nuisance from now on to level the playing field, since other groups seem to not care about collectively doing a better job.

The next time you see someone spouting anti-white nonsense about privilege, combine rhetoric with hatefacts and shut it down.

The Border Mindset

castelloplan_redraft-0

The particular borders of a state change over time. History bears witness to this process. Wars, invasions, annexations, revolutions, rebellions, collapses, and the like have confronted human attempts at territorial organization, probably since our earliest days. This area gets annexed to the crown, that area gets taken by invading forces, and that area all the way over there is de facto under our control since the local ruler obeys us. Borders expand and contract like the tide. In a sense, the fixity of borders is a lot like the concept of peace—it prevails in the absence of war but otherwise is a fantasy.

So yes, borders,in the sense of the exact delineations of state control over territory, fluctuate. But there is always a Border. Something separates the people of Territory A from Territory B in the hearts and minds of each respectively. Under ordinary conditions, each tribe has its turf, and has organized itself for the purposes of using, stewarding, and guarding that area. Such is the origin of the state, affectionately called one’s country. If a country doesn’t have a Border—a recognized distinction between its territorial population and foreigners—that means something has gone horribly wrong in the machinery of the state. The continuity of the freedom, liberty, and posterity of the nation are at risk. It could mean the army has been defeated in the field and the enemy has crossed into our land. It could mean the authorities tasked with perimeter defense are incapable of carrying out their duties, or unwilling to do so. It could mean a clique of traitors has opened the city gates. It could mean the country has lost its independence, and to speak of the Border would be anachronistic. But above all, the absence of the Border means that the inhabitants of the land (and their descendants) under the state have lost their claim of exclusivity to it. The tribe has, for all points and purposes, collapsed. Its territory is nullified and its people will be amalgamated or destroyed. The country is up for grabs (if it hasn’t already been taken possession of).

The borders can shift but if the Border is destroyed—if that distinction of one and land its people from other lands and peoples dissolves—the state ceases to meaningfully exist or possess territory for the use of its original people.

Has the Alt-Lite Embraced the [North American] New Right?

nrvor

Since the Alt-Right tends to be a little extreme for the average pro-Trump blogger or supplements salesman, the loose collection of civic nationalists and cultural libertarians we’ve taken to calling the Alt-Lite or Alt-RINOs has started grasping for a label to give itself. Lately that seems to be “New Right,” as opposed to what they presumably regard as the pre-Trump “Old Right,” i.e. (((neocons))) and cuckservatives.

Does anyone have the heart to tell them? Are the r/TheDonald crowd really ready to go out of the frying pan and into the gas chamber?

New Right is already in contemporary use, referring to Europe’s identitarian movement(s), as well as our local derivation, the North American New Right. Now, presumably these Alt-Lite types neither know what the New Right is nor care how the label is used by others. They’re not the most politically well-read people—many such cases!

Alt-Right 2016: The Current Year in Review

embrace-kek

The current year is dead. Long live the current year.

2016 was the year the Alt-Right went big league. We became a household name to anyone following the election closely, spread our memes further than ever before, and witnessed the ascent of Donald J. Trump as the next president of the United States. We memed a shitlord billionaire into the White House and triggered millions of people worldwide. There was a dizzying amount of media coverage and habbenings in 2016, almost to the point where it became exhausting to stay involved. You’re going to get tired of winning, folks.

First though, some general trends over 2016:

  • In a display of impressive ineptitude, Hillary Clinton fails to move past her deleted emails scandal over the course of nine months.
  • The world sees a marked increase in integrity among video game journalists.
  • The plague of frogs crashes upon the shores of the Potomac.
  • Sam Hyde is reportedly sighted at a number of violent crime scenes.
  • Semi-cucked commentators including Paul Joseph Watson and Steven Crowder label themselves “Alt-Right” but then drop the label as our brand recognition grows stronger.
  • Twitter bans a lot of people.
  • National Review Online discontinues Disqus comments in an attempt to stop Alt-Right raids on their site. Sad!
  • Thanks to the media’s mass coverage of the Alt-Right, The Right Stuff gets a permanent Wikipedia page with dozens of citations. Ditto the Alt-Right itself and the Triple Parentheses. We’re officially over the notability threshold now.
  • The Democratic Party succumbs to racism and xenophobia as it blames “the Russians” for costing them the election.
  • Many pool parties are held.

Either Jewish or Democratic: Kerry on Israel

kerry

The United Nations, the non-binding world parliament of color, has denounced Israel for the 6,000,000th time. Ordinarily this is not news. See the boilerplate below for just how routine this particular resolution (2334) was:

Condemning all measures aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, including, inter alia, the construction and expansion of settlements, transfer of Israeli settlers, confiscation of land, demolition of homes and displacement of Palestinian civilians, in violation of international humanitarian law and relevant resolutions

Reaffirms that the establishment by Israel of settlements… has no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace.

Israel continues to colonize the West Bank, the third-worldist voter bloc in the UN musters more than enough support to symbolically condemn Israel because demographics can only be altered in favor of third world peoples, a maelstrom of kvetching ensues, nothing happens, etc.

What is different is that the United States, in its last days under the Obama administration, has seen fit to abandon Our Greatest Ally™ by not blocking a UN resolution. For the first time in recent diplomatic history, Israel has been deprived of its faithful golem. At least, that is how the shrieking zionist lobby and their politicians in the United States see it.
