Republicans for ISIS

I have been checking blogs about the Syrian Civil War for some time now. One thing has become very clear. I now have a handle on what the supporters of the Syrian “moderate rebels” are all about.

Here is the profile of supporters of “Free Syria” and the “moderate rebels” including supporters of the “Free Syrian Army:”

They all and I do mean all, love ISIS. Every time ISIS succeeds on the battlefield, all supporters of “Free Syria” roar with approval. The also love the Nusra Front (Al Qaeda), Jaish al Islam and all of the rest of the Islamist groups.

Secular or nationalist groups make up maybe 10% of all fighters, but even they engage in the worst sectarian language such as calling the Alawi Nusayri. Nusayri is a vicious Sunni insult for Alawites and it has a murderous or even genocidal history and current project behind it. All of the secular or nationalist groups fight alongside the Islamist groups, in particular, they all fight alongside Al Qaeda or Al Nusra. So really all of the Syrian rebels are just Al Qaeda, ISIS, other Islamists or their close allies. Those are your moderate rebels for you.

They all hate Russia. This extends to general Cold War style propaganda against “Russian Communists” where Russia is conflated with the Soviet Union as all propaganda of the current Cold War 2 does.

They all describe themselves as conservatives. On these boards, all of the conservatives are cheering wildly for ISIS and Al Qaeda. So I guess conservatives love ISIS and Al Qaeda, at least in Syria, right?

Like all conservatives, they have an extreme hatred of liberalism and socialism. Anti-Communist language is very common, and Obama and the Democrats are called socialists or Communists as all Republicans do.

They all have an insane hatred for Obama along the lines and intensity of the Birther Tea Partier crowd.

The Chavista government in Venezuela is bashed on a regular basis as an example of the “failures of socialism” even though the whole economy is in the hands of the capitalists and obviously the fault for the shortages is 100% the fault of the Venezuelan capitalists. There are shortages of this or that product which is made or imported only by Venezuelan capitalists? Well gosh, then why don’t these capitalists start manufacturing more of that product, or barring that, importing it? The Venezuelan capitalists are fault out refusing to manufacture more of the products in shortage and they are also flat out refusing to import more of the products in shortage.

They do not like Trump one bit. In fact, they repeat the Economist line that Trump is the #1 threat to the world economy. Along with the Tea Party thinking, I would assume that these people are supporters of the US Republican Establishment – Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, etc. All of them have voiced strong support for the Syrian rebels which in effect means that these Republicans are all backing ISIS and Al Qaeda. Trump is the only candidate who has questioned arming the Syrian rebels and he said Putin was right to go in and help Assad. On the Democratic side, both Hillary and Sanders have voiced support for the Syrian rebels – in other words, both Hillary and Sanders are supporting ISIS and Al Qaeda, at least in Syria.

Their line about Syria mirrors almost exactly that of the US government and the US media. I conclude then that the US government, both political parties and the US media are all supporting ISIS and Al Qaeda, or at least they are supporting them in Syria. Really the truth is that the entire US establishment is behind ISIS and Al Qaeda at least in Syria. There is a tremendous amount of evidence that the US is using ISIS and Al Qaeda to try to destroy the Syrian regime.

They all have an extreme hatred for Iran. They make a big deal about Obama’s supposedly poor nuclear deal with Iran. When they do this, they sound just like the US Republican Party.

They all use extreme sectarian language. For instance, they say things like there is a Russia-Assad-Iran-Hezbollah project going on right now to genocide the Sunnis. They sound just like the Saudis when they talk like that.

Sanders Voters for Trump?

There are a few but not too many.

I have seen many Trump supporters writing in the comments on articles on the Net. Except in the piece linked above, I have not yet seen one liberal, progressive or leftwing person who commenting saying that they are voting for Trump. Hell, I haven’t even seen a moderate or centrist who says they are voting for Trump.

All, and I do mean all, of the Trump voters I have seen so far on the Net have been rightwingers – even worse, real wingnuts. This is the Fox News crowd, the base of the Republican Party. They’re all Obama haters and not because he’s too conservative. These are the Birthers. The kooks. The crazies. As I said, the base. As far as I can tell, that’s all who’s voting for him.

Apparently there are some left, liberal, progressive or even moderate people voting for Trump. It’s just that I never see any of them. I assume that that means that they are few in number.

If it’s a choice between a rightwing neoliberal, neoconservative and a fascist maniac , I don’t have much choice but to pick the former. I have been voting for the lesser of two evils for as long as I can remember. I usually hate the Democrats that I end up voting for, but vote for them I do anyway.

Economic Organization Says Trump Is the Number 1 Threat to the World Economy

Here.

The Economist Intelligence Unit, run by the very rightwing pro-corporate magazine The Economist, said in an analysis that Trump is the number 1 threat to the world economy due to his opposition to free trade and the possible killing of the nightmarish and catastrophic Transpacific Partnership free trade deal (TPP).

I suppose we could say then that anything that The Economist says is terrible for the world economy is probably actually great for most of us and no doubt anything that The Economist says is good for the world economy is bad for most of us.

Ding, Dong, The Bitch Is Dead

Here.

What took her so long?

Of course the stupid US press today is full of gushing editorials about how great Nancy was. She was not great. She wasn’t even good. Nor was she even fair. She wasn’t even 50-50. Nancy sucked, plain and simple. She was lousy. Worse than that, she was downright malign.

Worse, her suckiness was emblematic of the suckiness of far too many Americans in the last 35 years.

Also, why must we praise everyone who dies here in the US? Did we praise Ted Bundy when he fried? Did we praise Stalin? Ok, so why praise Nancy? If those two are in Hell, she’s about ready to buy a house on the same flaming street where those two reside

Ronnie never really had any political values. When he was an actor in Hollywood and President of the Screen Actors Guild, he was known as a liberal Democrat. As governor of California, he was terrible with campus protesters, but he also legalized abortion. To tell the truth, his conversation to radical conservatism in the space of a mere decade was all down to his wife Nancy. Nancy came from a very wealthy and deeply conservative family of Old White Rich Elite stock. Old White Money.

She was a deeply reactionary ideologue at her very core. She was also a very political activist.

It’s not well known, but Nancy truly was the brains behind the Ronnie Raygun Frankenstein Monster. Ronnie wasn’t very smart, and he was easily manipulated into his political stance by his crafty and devious wife.

As long as majorities keep saying that Reagan was a great man and a hero, America is screwed. The percentage has been going down for some time now, but last I heard, it was still at 53%.

If you said that almost all of those are White people, especially older White people, you would be right.

Another problem is the silly “Reagan generations” of younger people who came of age during his era when it was groovy to be a Reaganite. Large numbers of these younger folks still love Reagan because, well, because they came of age during his era. Apparently there was no one else around to like. You can see this shockingly even in some non-Whites like Obama. Obama says Reagan is his political hero! That’s because he grew up under him, see?

Also I must tell you that as a liberal Democrat during the Reagan days, anti-Reagan even here in California during that era was seen as very uncool. I had a couple of girlfriends during that time, and I told both of them that I hated him and asked what they thought of him. They both said that they did not like him, but acted like they were sort of ashamed to say so and afraid of the consequences, the same way so many liberals will quietly say that they opposed the war on Iraq, once again ashamed and afraid of the consequences.

We say we are the leader of the Free World, but when it comes to criticizing our reactionary nut leaders and their insane decisions, people act like they are living under Stalin. White America is a funny place.

There was always a lot of hatred towards Reagan, an extremely polarizing man. We think that working class White men are all reactionaries now, but I remember working as a security guard at a trucking yard for truck drivers in 1984. There were trucks with pro-John Hinckley graffiti on them praising Hinckley as a hero. It sounds terrible, but some of us actually cheered when that guy shot Reagan.

That’s how much we hated him. We hated him!

The problem is that any country where the majority thinks that maniac was a great man is a screwed country. When that number finally dips below 50%, we can start talking about whether there is hope for America. But as long as it’s a majority, forget it. This aspect is where a declining White percentage of the US will actually be a good thing. We will finally rid ourselves of this idiotic conservatism nightmare, inspired entirely by US Whites, that has gripped us for 35 years now.

Nancy Reagan will never be a hero to the Alternative Left. Is she is one of your heroes, you’re in the wrong movement. The Alt Right is that-a-way.

The Alternative Left Must Oppose Donald Trump

The guy’s a reactionary. He’s just another radical rightwing capitalist.

There are Leftists and people who call themselves socialists all over now saying how much they support Trump. They’re all crazy. There is not one single progressive thing about any aspect of his campaign. He’s just another rightwing Republican, albeit probably worse than most.

Any Leftist, socialist, progressive or liberal person supporting this maniac is out of their heads. This rightwing nut is bad for workers, consumers, the poor, the low income and the middle class. He is also bad for our Black and Muslim brothers and sisters in America.

As far as I am concerned, the Alternative Left absolutely most oppose Trump. We cannot support him in any way, shape or form.

No!

Trump’s Health Plan

Radical free market health plan.

It’s the same garbage that all the Republicans are pushing.

Block-granting Medicaid.

Weakening the FDA’s control over the pharmaceutical industry is terrible. So is streamlining the process for approval of new drugs.

The whole thing is awful. It will not do one single thing to make health care better in the US. Trump is just another rich radical rightwing Republican.

Awful:

  • Weakening control of the pharmaceutical industry and the Food and Drug Administration over drug testing, production and approval. It’s already far too streamlined and corrupt as it is. That’s why we have all these dangerous new pills allowed onto the market every year that injure and kill so many people. Loosening things up even more would be great for the pharmaceutical industry and terrible for everyone else.
  • Turning Medicaid into a block grant to the states, decentralizing the social welfare program from federal control. In other words, he will ruin Medicaid. Block-granting social programs is just a nice way of sticking it to the poor.

As a wealthy corporatist billionaire, I assume Trump much have a lot of rich buddies in the health care, health insurance, hospital, and pharmaceutical industries. This health plan is like a Republican Party dream come true. It will be great for all of those industries and terrible for everyone else. Everything for Trump, his companies and his rich pals and buddies in corporate America and nothing for anybody else.

A Marxist View of Our Present Economic Crisis

Found on the Net:

My belief is that Monopoly Capital describes a unique period of U.S. history between 1945 and 1970, when large U.S. corporations dominated the U.S. economy and exported large amounts of goods overseas.

During this 25 year period – created by the convergence of two items – the devastation of European capitalism and the New Deal promotion of unions – companies could give decent wages to workers, raise prices to pay for those wages, and export profitably to other nations. That was the era of Monopoly Capital and the era of large amounts of surplus capital. The manufacturing sector generated 40 to 50% of corporate profits during this time. Note that this time period is the period of rising wages/income that stopped in 1973.

However, in the 1970s this system broke down. More and more U.S. companies were competing against cheaper, higher quality imports from Japan, Germany, and a few other countries. The trade balance went into deficit around 1973 and since then we have a huge trade imbalance. Profits for manufacturing companies went down, jobs were lost, and companies attacked their unions because they no longer had monopoly pricing power. Reagan breaking the airline controllers union and Volker sending interest rates over 15% were markers of the period.

During the Reagan-Bush era there was an industrial depression and a corresponding boom in financial, real estate, and trade (the FIRE sector). By the 1990s, the FIRE sector was generating 40% of corporate profits and manufacturing profits were plunging below 20% of profits. Thus, the onslaught of foreign competition in manufactured goods ignited a tidal wave of job cuts and pay cuts and destruction of unions and the loss of pensions etc.

Now the capitalists all around the world (including the Chinese capitalists) have squeezed so much out of workers, there isn’t enough demand in the world to buy all of their products. So, for example, now U.S. corps have a trillion dollars sitting in bank accounts overseas because they have nowhere to invest it profitably in the U.S. or anywhere. So I believe the age of inequality is the results of fierce worldwide competition which forced wages down which now leads to to what Marx called a “Realization” crisis – capitalists have trouble using their greatly increased share of the surplus because there isn’t enough demand to invest it into new profitable ventures.

Finally, a more technical Marxist issue. It is unclear if, in a competitive world market, things like marketing and research into new products are surplus or whether they are necessary to realize profits. Changing tail fin designs on cars was unnecessary in the 1950s, but doing research on hybrid engines in the 2000s was necessary for American companies to compete with Japanese companies. Thus, the whole measurement of the surplus changes depending on how necessary the components are.

There are charts and articles in the past five years that show how the share of income going to labor is falling and the share that goes to capital is growing. But the cause of that seems to me be falling real wages rather than an abstract surplus being grabbed. I suggest you look into this literature plus the work of Robert Brenner who wrote The Economics of Global Turbulence which is a Marxist account of the new world of capitalist competition and squeezing labor and labor unions.

As usual, the Marxist analysis of capitalism is as immaculate now as it was when Marx himself was writing. Of course, there is not a single conservative, rich person or capitalist on Earth who will agree with this assessment because these people have a unique view of what constitutes a true or false question.

To capitalists, the rich and conservatives, a question is true or false depending only on certain variables.

To these people an answer to a question is false if:

  • It makes my ideology look bad
  • It makes capitalism look bad
  • It interferes with my profits or promotes a view that may lower my profits.
  • It conflicts with my ideology.

An answer to a question is true if:

  • It makes my ideology look good
  • It makes capitalism look good
  • It makes me more money or promotes a view that increases my profits.
  • It is congruent with my ideology.

A shorter version is that for the rich, conservatives and capitalists, anything that increases my wealth or profits is a true statement and anything that lowers my wealth or profits is a false statement.

As Upton Sinclair noted, it’s hard for a man to truthfully answer a question when his money and profits are involved in the answer. He will always support any answer that is good for his money and profits, and he will always oppose any answer that is bad for his money and profits.

So in a capitalist society, philosophy itself goes out the window. Not only is God dead, but philosophy itself is dead. Philosophy can be thought of as a search for the truth. Once a society decides that “the truth is whatever makes me money, and falsehood is whatever makes me less money” then the whole concept of truth and falsehood is out the window.

Not only is philosophy dead, but science is too. Inevitably, science is ruined in a capitalist society. The capitalists soon take over most of the sciences and the universities, and both the universities and the sciences become utterly corrupted by money. When the views in so-called scientific publications are dependent on whether or not that view makes people money or loses people money, then empiricism itself is history.

Now the Marxists have no money whatsoever riding on the answers to the questions that they are answering, so there is no motivation for them to lie. That’s why the best analyses of whatever is going on in any capitalist situation anywhere on Earth will always come from the Marxists.

I have looked over the statement above and I cannot see one false statement anywhere in it. Of course, you will never find such an analysis anywhere in any US media outlet because this analysis if adopted stands to lose the capitalists, the rich and the conservatives (these people control 100% of US media) a lot of money.

The real problem is that in a capitalist society almost everyone is lying a good part of the time. From the time you awaken til the time you bed down, the individual in capitalist society is assaulted by the endless lies of conservatives, capitalists and the rich (who are really the same people).

The individual goes to the media for answers to questions about this or that, and all he finds are nothing but lies. 95% of media consumers are not intelligent or sophisticated enough to parse the lies from the facts. I can do it myself, but I have a genius IQ, am nearly unemployed, and I have been studying political economy for decades. Most people do not have my gifts or attributes necessary to figure out what is going on. Even with my gifts and attributes, it is often very difficult for me to figure out what is going on because the US media is usually in Lockstep Lie Mode on so many issues. The only way I can figure things out is by going to alternative media on the Net, and even then, it is not so easy to piece it all together.

What are the consequences of living in a society where you are lied to about as much as a North Korean? This is not known, but I would assume that the consumers of these lies often start lying a lot themselves, as they parrot the media, and soon find it nearly impossible to tell fact from fiction. Because most folks seem oblivious to the idea that they can even tell fact from fiction, and do not even seem to be care that they are being lied to, the astute individual in a capitalist country quickly takes the masses as suckers who cannot even figure out if they are being conned.

If people actually do start mimicking the dishonestly of the elites, politics and the media, then you end up in a Society of Liars or at least a society of folks who think lying is no big deal. Now the fact-conscious person, in addition to having to tease apart the media-politics propaganda, also has to deal with probable mass lying in his personal world as he goes about business in a capitalist society.

I can’t see how sort of mass promotion of degeneracy and depravity in terms of moral philosophy can possibly have a good effect on the body politic.

And perhaps even more importantly, who wants to live in a Society of Liars anyway? Is it fun? I don’t find it to be a blast. It strikes me as profoundly discouraging and depressing.

Donald Trump on the Issues: My Views on His Positions

RL: “Trump has too many other bad things about him”

Tony Swagger: Can you list some of them? The way i see it, he seems to the least of evil we have to put up with. Imagine a country ruled by Cruz, Rubio or Hillary. Sanders credibility is dubious as well given his Jewish background. Also from a socialist POV, Trump doesn’t seem so evil as the MSM and Jew lobby make out to be and Blacks don’t have to be so wild given that Trump hasn’t said so many mean things about them unlike other white advocates. I see no reason why anyone opposes Trump. They all worship Israel and are gonna make us meddle in some unwanted wars in the middle east. Trump seems like a saint amongst them.

Trump says he is a conservative Republican. Ok, that’s a dealbreaker right there.

The Trump campaign’s tax plan calls for reducing the corporate tax rate to 15% concurrent with the elimination of various loopholes and deductions. No to lowering the corporate tax rate.

Trump identifies as a “free trader.” Bad.

Trump opposes increasing the U.S. minimum wage, saying that doing so would hurt America’s economic competitiveness. Speaking at the Republican debate on November 10, Trump said, “We are a country that is being beaten on every front—economically, militarily. Taxes too high, wages too high, we’re not going to be able to compete against the world … People have to go out, they have to work really hard, and they have to get into that upper stratum.” Wages are too high? WTH.

Trump has stated he wants to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigrants from entering into the country. I oppose building a moronic wall on the border with Mexico, but I am ok with a vehicle barrier.

Trump has described the evolution of his position on abortion; although he formerly took several pro-choice positions, he now describes himself as pro-life and would ban late-term abortions except in cases of rape, incest, or health. He is in favor of cutting federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Dealbreaker.

Trump has stated his support for school choice and local control for primary and secondary schools. On school choice he’s commented, “Our public schools are capable of providing a more competitive product than they do today. Look at some of the high school tests from earlier in this century, and you’ll wonder if they weren’t college-level tests. And we’ve got to bring on the competition — open the schoolhouse doors and let parents choose the best school for their children. Education reformers call this school choice, charter schools, vouchers, even opportunity scholarships. I call it competition — the American way.” No on “school choice” and “vouchers.” Also he lied about tests in 1900.

He has stated he opposes the Common Core State Standards Initiative for primary and secondary schools, and has called Common Core “a disaster” that must be ended. There is nothing wrong with Common Core, and the movement to get rid of it is a nutcase rightwing obsession.

Trump has praised prominent national evangelical leaders, including Tony Perkins and Ralph Reed. Ralph Reed? Dealbreaker?

Trump supports the Second Amendment, is opposed to gun control in general, and has a New York concealed carry permit. Bad.

He once supported a ban on assault weapons and longer waiting periods for gun purchases but has since reversed his position. Stupid.

He also supports national right to concealed carry and allow gun permits to be applicable to all 50 states much like a driver’s license. I see that Trump is an insane person. Dealbreaker?

After the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, Trump declared that the victims “could’ve protected themselves if they had guns.” A crazy person talks like this.

Trump favors replacing the Affordable Care Act (commonly referred to as “Obamacare”) with a free-market plan and competition to lower costs. Dealbreaker.

He has previously expressed support for allowing people to privately invest their social security dollars. Bad idea.

Trump believes that childhood vaccinations are related to autism, a hypothesis which has been repeatedly debunked. Idiot.

Trump has stated that he supports traditional marriage. Against gay marriage. Boo!

Trump contends that global warming is “a total hoax”, and has joked that “the concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive.” Dealbreaker.

Trump criticized President Obama’s description of climate change as “the greatest threat to future generations” as being “naive” and “one of the dumbest statements I’ve ever heard.” Dealbreaker!

Trump opposes cap and trade. Bad, bad, bad.

Trump has stated his intention to provide presidential leadership with strong diplomacy to restore “respect” for the United States around the world and he supports a robust national defense. Bad. Wants to increase defense spending?!

Trump said in a December 2015 rally, “We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways. Somebody will say, ‘Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people.” He wants to shut down the Internet?! WTH.

Donald Trump said that the internet should be shut off to countries that have a majority of their territory controlled by terrorist organizations. Name some countries have a majority of their territory controlled by terrorists first. And assuming you can find one place, why should Libyans or whoever have their Net shut off? And how does one go about “turning off the Internet” to any country on Earth anyway? Ridiculous.

In his announcement speech, Trump said that the U.S. is getting weaker as a country and that its nuclear arsenal is old and does not work. Idiot, and a lie.

Trump has stated that he would re-instate waterboarding as an interrogation technique, and “a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding.” No!

“The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. No, no! Dealbreaker.

Trump has said that he would “bomb the hell” out of Iraqi oil fields controlled by ISIS. Terrible idea!

In an interview, Trump stated “We’re going to have to do what Israel was doing for a period of time. ‘Take out’ means you have to wipe out their homes where they came from.” Trump’s model for dealing with terrorism is Israel! Israel!

Trump reiterated his statements about ISIS from November 12, 2015, when he stated he would “bomb the shit out of ’em” and said “I’d blow up the [oil] pipes, I’d blow up the refineries, and you know what, you’ll get Exxon to come in there in two months…and I’d take the oil.” Catastrophic. Dealbreaker X10.

Trump called the newly announced nuclear deal with Iran “terrible”, saying that the president negotiated the agreement “from desperation”. Idiot.

“First of all, we’re giving them billions of dollars in this deal, which we shouldn’t have given them. We should have kept the money”. Lie. We gave them back their own money that was frozen (stolen) by us.

“There’s something in the Iran deal that people I don’t think really understand or know about, and nobody’s able to explain it, that if somebody attacks Iran, we have to come to their defense”, he said. “So if Israel attacks Iran, according to that deal, I believe the way it reads […] that we have to fight with Iran against Israel.” Supports Israeli war on Iran? No!

When questioned on his “new deal with Iran” Trump responded that “Iran is doing nuclear. They’re going nuclear.” Lie! Which Jewish newspaper told him that one?

He would “put on the sanctions on Iran big league. I’d double and triple up the sanctions and make a deal from strength.” Bad.

According to Trump, nuclear weapons, not global warming, is America’s biggest problem. Just wrong.

In 2015 when asked how he would deal with Iraq’s condemnation of strikes on their oil fields, Trump replied that Iraq is a corrupt country that is not deserving of his respect. Catastrophic.

Speaking to the Yalta European Strategy conference in September 2015, Trump criticized Germany and other European countries for not doing enough to support Ukraine in its conflict with Russia and he claimed Ukrainians are “not being treated right.” Idiot, supports Nazis and also contradicted himself.

Why I View the Cultural Left’s Extreme Promotion of Homoseual Sex with Alarm

There are two types of homosexual evangelization that American men are subjected to. The first is the normal evangelization of gay men. This has been noted in psychiatric studies of gay men all through the last century. If you go back through these reports, you will see that they report that homosexuals are often very evangelistic about the type of sex they have and spend a fair amount of time trying to recruits newbies to their sexual lifestyle. Thinking back on it, I think gay and bi men probably do this a lot more than lesbians or bi women, but then I do not know much about homosexual behavior in women.

The effects of gay men making passes at straight men as driver of societal degeneracy are much exaggerated, particularly by the wild homophobes on the Religious Right. As noted in other posts, many straight men, especially if they are goodlooking, spend decades of their lives fending off homosexuals. I’ve turned them down probably thousands of times. I lost track.

It’s not like by the 2,000th time I was worn down and ready to cave. After thousands of offers, I was no more likely to do it than after the first one at age 16. If anything, I am probably even more resolved.

I feel that people underestimate the level of homophobia among most American men. This high level of homophobia, which I feel is adaptive and pro-civilizational, is despised by the Cultural Left as “bigotry” or “mental illness,” while actually it is neither. Straight men simply normally tend to have a strong revulsion against this sort of thing. It’s a natural, normal and acceptable way to feel. It’s goes with the territory of being a straight man.

The level of homophobia is so extreme among American men that it seems like it would be hard to seduce them into homosexual behavior, especially as they get a bit older, as it is always easier to get younger people to try new things than it is to get older folks to do so.

Sometimes I wonder what exactly it would take to get a lot of straight men to do such a thing because they seem to dead-set against it.

As such, the religious Right’s fear of gay evangelization is rather overblown, but cultural evangelization is another matter altogether. This is why I am alarmed at the Cultural Left’s attempt to portray male homosexual sex like it’s the greatest new flavor of ice cream. Culture is incredibly powerful. Cultural changes are much more powerful than an army of gay men trying to fulfill their “straight guy fantasy.”

The Main Problem with the Alternative Right

Bay Area Guy writes:

What amazes me though is that despite lamenting the fact that more whites aren’t on board with the alt right, Alt Righters too often ignore economic issues. There’s a reason why Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump – who along with his inflammatory rhetoric also denounces free trade deals – have galvanized so many white Americans, albeit in their own radically different ways.

As I told Robert Stark during my first appearance on his radio program over two years ago, the average young white person doesn’t give two flying fucks about the Frankfurt School or subtle Jewish themes in Hollywood films; they’re interested in economic survival.

Alt righters should take a page from Bernie Sanders’s book, as he’s earned the loyal and passionate following of far more young whites than they have – even young white women support Sanders far more than they do fellow female Hillary Clinton.

This election just goes to show that while identity is indeed important, identity politics alone is not enough to build a movement around.

The whole problem with the Alt Right is the “Right” part. They all feel that they are part of a rightwing or conservative movement, and therefore, almost none of them want to support anything “leftwing.” So they have boxed themselves in. Everything they support on any issue has to be “rightwing.”

Even when they tired of rightwing economics for obvious reasons, the only thing they could promote was a basic income of $10,000/yr along with zeroing out all social programs. Now that’s not even liberal. I think everyone on the Left would be against it honestly. But the only reason they could even support that was that conservative hero Milton Friedman supported it.

By calling themselves Alt Right, they have walled off the entire liberal/Left/progressive universe as evil and the enemy, even though we have some pretty damn good ideas on certain things.

I suppose the Alt Right ought to be for people who are basically conservative but are opposed to some aspects of the Right in the US. The Alt Righters seem to be mostly opposed to the Right because they are not rightwing enough. I can’t think of one thing where the Alt Right thinks the Right is too conservative!
