Just Got a Lifetime Ban from Daily Kos

Daily Kos is Ground Zero for the Base of the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party’s Base is more leftwing than the party itself in the same way that the Republican Base is more rightwing than the party itself. Party Bases tend to be like that. The Base of the Democratic Party would best be called the Left Wing of the Democratic Party. Now granted, there are some decent people on there. There are actually a fair number of Marxists and socialists hanging out in the Democratic Party Base.  After all, they have nowhere else to go. But this is a quite small percentage of the Base.

I have been banned for life from Daily Kos, and honestly it is a blessing because I absolutely despise most Democratic Party liberal types. The problem with them is that there’s nothing liberal about them. In any sane system, they would be something like what used to be called a Liberal Republican. They just flat out suck!

Their foreign policy is horrific. Almost all liberal Democrats are ((neocon)) fanatics. The whole left wing of the Democratic Party is completely overrun with a ((certain type of people)). As usual, they destroy that wing of the party as a result. They love Israel! The Democratic Party can’t get enough of wonderful Israel. Wonderful Israel is the greatest country on Earth.

Almost 100% of them support the war against the Syrian people we are waging with our Al Qaeda and ISIS allies. They hate Russia! They love the Ukrainian Nazis! Yeah, I know, makes no sense. They love Israel and they also love Al Qaeda, ISIS and real actual Nazis in the Ukraine. But that’s the exact geopolitics of (((certain people))) in the US, and as (((these people))) control this wing of the party, (((their))) values become everyone’s values. The love NATO! They hate North Korea, and some of them want to attack North Korea! They love US imperialism! They love the Pentagon! They love the CIA! They love the FBI!

Everyone on Kos loved this maniac named “Mad Dog” Maddis, the new general heading  up the Pentagon under Trump. Personally, I think he’s psycho, and he’s just another War Pig. Actually he’s worse than your ordinary War Pig. He’s a particularly belligerent type of militarist War Pig. A very frightening man.

And of course that whole wing of the party has been taken over by some time now by the most insane of the SJW’s.

They love free trade agreements! I would say 85% of Kossacks love the TPP, all because their hero Hitlery was pushing it. Kossacks suck! They love globalization!

They are all for Open Borders and Amnesty! As a matter of fact, I believe it has been a bannable offense on there for some time now to oppose illegal immigration.

I will say though that there are now some anti-Israel and anti-Zionist types on there. There are a few who support Syria and even some who support Russia. These might be 20% of Kossacks. However, Israel has become such a divisive hot button issue that I believe all discussion of the Israel-Palestinian Question has been banned. It’s nice to see that the Israel-Palestine Question has become incendiary at all in the Democratic Base though. Things are slowly changing.

There was actually a huge Bernie Sanders movement on Daily Kos, and there was a near civil war between Killary and Sanders supporters on there. Mods were continually having to wade in and sort out wild shouting matches and near virtual fistfights on the site. I did enjoy seeing the emergence of a Bernie wing. The one redeeming feature of the Base right now is this Bernie wing. Hope springs eternal!

On most economic type issues, Kossacks are generally very good. Of course they’re correct that this current crop of Republicans is worse than cancer. I agree. In fact, these Kossacks are the closest thing to “my people” anywhere on the Web. Which is partly why the ban was so painful.

OK, now for the ban story.

A Kossack wrote a typical article on there about one of the many false flags the (((US))) and Al Qaeda have been staging in Syria. This one was one of the many fake chemical weapons false flags. Unbelievably, there have been ~40-50 chemical weapons false flag attacks in Syria so far. The (((US government))) helped to propagandize every single one of them, and we were apparently directly involved in others.

I know that the DIA was directly involved in the famous Fake Sarin Gas Attack in Ghouta in the Damascus suburbs a few years ago. As has been the case in a number of these attacks, not only did Assad not shoot any Sarin or any other chemical weapons that day, even more bizarrely than that is the fact there was no Sarin of chemical weapons attack by anyone, Syria or the rebels, in Ghouta that day. The Fake Sarin Attack was like the Gulf of Tonkin Incident and all sorts of staged false flag bullshit the US engages in.

This was an attack that, incredibly, never even happened! We are talking about an event that never even occurred! Isn’t that incredible? The recent “Sarin” attack in Khan Sheikoun was similar. Once again, not only did Assad not shoot Sarin or any other chemical weapons (he has none to shoot), but the rebels didn’t either. Once again we are talking about an attack that never even happened. What happened instead, as in Ghouta, was a fake staged phony attack which was meant to portray the real one.

Anyway, this (((good goy))) on ((Kos)) was going on about the evil Assad, how he launches chemical weapons on his people and how we need to send our close allies ISIS and Al Qaeda in to finish him off. The usual Zionist jerkoff on (((Kos))). The place is swarming with Zionists. They are practically crawling all of the walls and even up on the ceiling of the place.

So I posted a comment where I said something like:

“What’s the name of your hometown? Tel Aviv?”

Basically questioning his loyalty to America and suggesting that he was guilty of dual loyalty.

Well, the other (((Kossacks))) absolutely flipped out and called in some (((moderators))). I was immediately labeled a Republican Trump-supporting troll. The (((commenters))) were beside themselves about my “outrageous, bizarre and appallingly anti-Semitic remark.” On the contrary, I was quite proud of that remark. Hey, if you are running interference for Israel, we have a right to check you out to make sure you do not have dual loyalty as so many of those types do.

So now I have a lifetime ban at ((Daily Kos)) for “anti-Semitism.”

Fuck ((Daily Kos)). Fuck the ((Democratic Party)). Fuck ((liberal Democrats)).

Alt Left: Are SJW’s Mostly Insane, Mostly Evil or Both?

Christopher: If you hate Democrats so much and you hate Republicans even more, why not just vote Green?

The fact that millions of people vote for parties while holding their noses with a clothes peg is the reason why we are in this mess.

Also SJW’s are not well-meaning. They want to destroy Western civilization just so they can look cool and rebellious. Anti-SJW’s may not always be perfect, but at least they don’t want think Western Civilization is the most homophobic, racist, least tolerant society on Earth when actually it is the best place to be an ethnic minority or gay.

Actually I do vote Green a fair amount of the time. But this last election I looked at the Green platform and decided that the Greens were seriously out of their minds. I mean talk about SJW’s! The Greens are vastly worse SJW’s than even the Democraps are.

Often if I think that the Democrap does not have a chance, say my district is very rightwing (which has been the situation almost my entire life in California, even today), then I will just vote Green because the Democrap does not stand a chance anyway. Or if the Democrap is obviously going to wipe out the Republican completely, I might vote Green. Also it depends on how crappy the Democrap is. Diane Feinstein is a rightwing monster, but I have always liked Barbara Boxer. And I really love Kamala Harris. Those are actual Democrats, not the usual Democraps. We are really growing some fine Democrats here in California.

Your extreme denunciation of SJW’s is interesting. I do not think they are evil poison selling the destruction of society. That’s what Republicans do. I think the SJW’s are just selling insanity. Instead of a dystopic horrorshow, the world the SJW’s want strikes me more as an insane asylum. Never attribute to malice what you can attribute to idiocy. And it’s best not to attribute to evil what is better seen as simply insanity. Many mentally ill people seem evil, but often they are simply insane and the insanity is what’s causing their awful behavior. Their hearts are actually decent deep down inside.

SJW’s Are Creating a Whole Generation of Fascists

Here.

Exactly. I think Jason has mentioned this a number of times. The SJW’s have become completely irrational and even insane, and the insanity progresses every year, as they endlessly move the goalposts in the social football game called the Oppression Olympics that they proudly created.

The thing is, society offers you two extremely shitty choices, as usual. American society seems to specialize in offering you two different flavors of ideological shit sandwich. You get a choice of either the Democrats or the Republicans, but the problem is they both suck to high heavens.

I almost never vote for a candidate I actually like. I have been voting for candidates that I hated almost my whole life. Generally I vote Democrat even though I pretty much despise Democraps. The reason is because I hate Democrats a lot less than I hate Republicans. I vote for them because though they are evil and they suck, they suck less than the other side. I wonder how many other Americans routinely go into the voting booth to vote for the candidate they hate less or simply to vote against the candidate that they hate more. The latter is usually what I do. I vote to vote No on Republicans because they are a flat out menace.

Yes, I want to shoot SJW’s though I never would so I have to satisfy myself with homicidal fantasies), but Republicans are the ones that will truly not be missed.

SJW’s, as horrific and evil as they are, are really nothing but a black loud of Alaskan mosquitoes. I am sure Siberian-type mosquitoes are damned evil if you stuck in a crowd of them, but I imagine bug spray still works for them, and barring that, you can always just wrap up nearly every inch of your exposed body, which you probably want to do in Alaska anyway, as it’s so damn cold.

Thing is, I can think you can deal with Alaskan mosquitoes. I mean lots of humans live up there, and they are able to live there without dying of mosquito bites, so I am sure there is a way around the infernal swarms. Yes, they drive you crazy. Yes, they make you want to kill every mosquito on Earth. Yes, they are worse than annoying. Yes, they ruin your day. But at the end of the day, you can probably pretty much deal with the swarms one way or another. It’s like having a very annoying and unpleasant illness, with the upside that it is certainly not fatal. It sucks, but you can deal.

Republicans on the other hand are an actual man-eating tiger in your living room with no way to defend yourself and no way to escape. Republicans are literally a threat to your sustenance, shelter, transportation, medical care, retirement, physical health, mental health. Hell, they’re basically a threat to your health and life itself. They can literally make you dead or wish you were. They’re as bad as the tiger in the room. You never know when it’s going to try to kill you. In the meantime, you’re just buying time until it does.

Of course I fully understand why so many people despise SJW scum. I want them dead myself. I literally do not care if every SJW in the US lives or dies. I honestly do not care if millions of them dropped dead for no reason tomorrow. That’s how much hate I have for them.

But there is hope! There is a whole huge anti-SJW movement out there. You can just sign right up! It’s easy!

Problem: The cure is worse than the disease in most cases. The anti-SJW’s are almost completely conservatives, reactionaries, fascists, and real-deal type racists, misogynists, anti-Semites, homophobes, transphobes, etc. They are literally troglodytes, and almost all anti-SJW’s are vastly worse than SJW’s. Ugly, ugly people.

SJW’s are mostly misguided fucktards who keep sending whole armies out to put out house fires. They’re like an immune response in your body. They are frankly well-intentioned, but they take their moralizing vastly too far and turn into Comstocks and Puritans like all self-righteous jerks. There’s such a thing as too much good. Too much good literally sucks all the fun out of life. Everything is forbidden because it’s somehow haram. But their hearts are in the right place. They are literally trying to be good and do the right thing. They’re taking the “be a good  person” thing  vastly too far, but at least they’re promoting good and not evil.

I mean SJW’s attack your free speech, they might even threaten your livelihood, and they very deservedly make you want to murder them because of all the abuse and hate they throw at you. That’s annoying. Not being able to say what I want to say everywhere I want to say it is annoying. Getting banned from every other forum and group on the Net is annoying, but I can deal.

There’s always the blog, which has been reported to WordPress more times than I can count. I am on good terms with WP staff,  they know the site very well, and we have had some deep conversations about what I can post here in terms of content and what I cannot post. I know where the lines are that get you in trouble with them. As far as what I write about, they literally do not care WTF I say about anything, and they have told me so. WP are free speech radicals, true social libertarians in that sense. The only stuff that got me into trouble was videos, but I know the boundaries on those now too.

So I can still shoot off my mouth and be a social arsonist who sets social brush fires all day and then races to put them out. That’s the purpose of the whole site. I’m a provocateur. The site is a gigantic troll of the world. It is literally designed to piss off as many people as possible. Why? For no reason. For shits and giggles. Because I can and you can’t stop me.

Which is nice.

On the other hand, Republicans, conservatives, reactionaries, and fascists are far worse than annoying. They are literally a Code Red threat to life and limb – mine, yours, everyone else’s, and the whole damn planet’s.

So people who hate SJW’s logically run to the anti-SJW movement, which is actually far worse. That’s not a solution.

As usual, US society is offering you two flavors of shit sandwich with nothing edible in between. You can either pick one of the sandwiches, eat it whole, and then say you’ve made up your mind, right, wrong or indifferent, and try to make yourself at home with whichever lunatic scumbags you are hooked up with. Or you can you prefer not to eat shit sandwiches, but then you are politically homeless because there is no movement that says the Right and the SJW’s can both burn in Hell.

The problem is that US society literally throws you into one five alarm fire or the other. If you hate SJW’s, you are automatically Alt Right, Republican, conservative, reactionary, or especially fascist. If you believe in bash the fash and you despise the Alt Right, the conservatives, the reactionaries, the Republicans, and the fash, then you are automatically a Cultural Left SJW retard. You don’t get to protest and say you hate both of them. If you hate one side, then you get literally thrown into the other side. If  you hate them too, the other side tosses you back to your original  oppressors. It’s like Stalin and  Hitler are playing Mortal Volleyball and using you as the ball, which will be destroyed at the end of the game.

But since there is literally nothing in between two camps of raving lunatics and ferocious assholes, most people pick one side or the other as society orders them to. As every action causes an equal and opposite reaction, people who despise SJW’s almost always drift straight over to the Right, somehow adjust themselves to the new neighborhood, and after a while, make themselves a happy home.

And since the SJW’s are pissing off more humans than there are mosquitoes in an Alaskan mosquito horde literally every day, yes, of course, the SJW’s are actually causing the explosion on the Alt Right, the New Fascism, the whole nine yards. It’s 1920’s Germany all over again, complete with Friecorps and Brownshirts breaking skulls and people screaming “social fascists.” There’s fighting in the streets, and as both sides are batshit nuts when they are not stone evil, the end result is, as in 20’s Germany, simply total chaos and societal dysfunction.

So the article is correct. SJW’s literally caused not only the election of this Frankenstein Trump Monster Thing, but they also literally caused the Alt Right, and these boneheads are literally causing an explosion, of actual, real deal, unreconstructed fascists straight out the 20’s Germany that I discussed above. Or better yet, 30’s Germany because that was so much worse.

I don’t know what to say. US politics is a toxic War of Dueling Assholes like it’s been forever now.

Solution? I ain’t got one. There’s always this bottle of beer I am going to open in about four minutes. That’s about the only palliative I can think of. That or take to bed, sleep all day and engage the false hope the endless nightmare somehow ends.

Sticky: Fund Drive at Beyond Highbrow

To access the latest posts on the site, please scroll pasts the first two sticky posts. 

https://robertlindsay.wordpress.com/contribute/

Hi folks, it’s that time again. Yep, another donation request. I do not think I am abusing this feature. Most for-pay websites that run on this model hit you up for donations on just about every article. I don’t do that at all.

Furthermore, this is not begging. I work very hard on this site. I wrote 5,000 words just the other day. That would be 10 pages in a book. A lot of times I work on and off all day on this site. And I definitely work seven days a week on it. So I put in quite a few hours of hard work.

The fund drive simply asks you to pay my salary for my writing. It’s like buying a subscription to a newspaper or magazine. It’s a way of supporting my writing and this site as a whole. And if there are some features you love such as the forums, you might want to donate just to keep them running. So if you like my writing or my forums, you might want to donate to keep them going. If you hate my writing and/or my forums, well then, don’t donate to keep them going. That’s your right, and I don’t blame you for not paying. Why pay for something you hate?

Once again, this isn’t begging or handouts. I am requesting that you pay part of my wage or salary for this hard work I am doing here. It’s only begging  or handouts if you ask for money without working. I am simply a worker who is requesting to be paid for my labor, just like any other worker.

The forum model worked very good for a few months. Quite a bit of money came in. I figure at least 200 people paid to become members of the forum. However, forum membership purchases have slacked off dramatically; in fact, they have collapsed.

I have several income streams. I have at least three different income streams off this site alone now that I am finally selling advertisements. I suppose selling ads is begging for handouts too, right? I also have three different income streams outside of this site, only one of which is active now. The other two are dormant. So as you can see, I have six different ways of making money via work or labor. So that’s like six different jobs in a way. Problem is that they have all collapsed to a very low level lately. As you can see, someone working six different jobs at once is obviously too lazy to work!

I did  pretty well for a few months there with the forum. Two months I made $3,000/month. I was quite proud of myself, as I have never made $3,000/month in my entire life.

Actually I probably have 20-30 years ago if you account for inflation. I was making decent money as a schoolteacher and a paralegal for a while. For about a year, I was working as a schoolteacher and a paralegal. I would teach school all day, and then I would go into the paralegal job after everyone got home and work until late at night. And then on Saturday and Sunday, I would look around to see if any cops were around and then I would hop the fence at the law office and go into work a lot of the day on Saturday and Sunday. As you can see, I am a bum and derelict who refuses to work!

I took a vacation recently to the Bay Area to meet a couple of people and have some fun. The trip was supposed to cost $500, but instead it cost $1,750, as my car broke down over there and I had to spend extra nights in the hotel and then had to eventually spend $850 to fix the car. So the $1,750 expense basically was all of savings that I had saved up from the months when the money was good.

I am now back in the hole like I always am. Before the start of the drive, I was $185 below budget actually. At this point in the drive, I am now $45 above budget, but I definitely have new car expenses, sadly. A huge thanks to everyone who donated! I love all you!

The Alt Left View on Anti-Black Racism

Rambo: Saw you’re 10-6-17 post regarding some guy calling you a racist. Left the first comment about that. P.S. I happen to be a Black guy.

The real hardcore nasty racism against Black people bothers me. I do not mean just words and whatnot, but ugly words are still gnarly. It’s hard to argue that you’re not racist against Blacks when you care calling them niggers all the time like so many of these Alt Right types do. Used in a certain way, that is a very cruel word to use against Black people. It is nearly a slap in the face. It’s literally a fighting word.

Real discrimination against Blacks bothers me too. I am against discrimination! However, I would argue that disparate impact has to go, and affirmative action is not the way to deal with discrimination.

I am outraged at the way Blacks are having their right to vote taken away from them. It’s like we are back to Jim Crow.

It’s little known, but the Housing Rights Act is barely enforced at all. It’s a great law, the last of the great civil rights laws of the Second Liberation, but it’s toothless a lot of the time. They do have investigators they send out, and it is pretty simple to pick up discrimination, but they get constant budget cuts, especially when Republicans came in. Trump put this silly Tom named Ben Carson in charge of HUD, and one of the first things this House Negro said was that he would not enforce the Housing Rights Act.

Job discrimination has declined dramatically, but it’s still out there. Promotion discrimination is actually a more serious problem. The EEOC generally has good resources to fight this, and they do all the time. Good for them. The lawwuits are generally not abusive (though the disparate impact ones are) and most of the time, they are filing suit against some nasty policies.

Trump’s softer racism is starting to bother me too. When there are multiple people doing something he doesn’t like, he singles out the Black man and goes after him. And he seems to single out Blacks for attacks based on their behavior. This NFL flap feels racist to me. He just can’t resist any opportunity to bash Blacks. I think he is trying to win points with his racist base this way.

It is sickening that Jeff Sessions is now Attorney General. This is one nasty, ugly, old cracker White man from the South. He’s an unreconstructed Jim Crow type racist. His racism is raw and unmasked. They put this anti-Black racist cracker in charge of enforcing the laws of this land! Outrageous!

The modern antiracist movement of which many Blacks are a part of has gone completely bonkers and off the deep end. They have taken things way too far, and all they are doing is making people mad. Plus they are fighting for some very dubious things. Even worse, they are driving some formerly sympathetic Whites over to the overt racist side as the logic of the crazy debate is that you are with either the CRT kooks or the nasty racists, and there’s no middle ground. You have to side with one idiot or the other. It’s a game of Pick Your Fool.

But the correct response to the craziness and stupidity and even wicked folly of modern anti-racism is not be become a racist in response. The correct response is to say the Hell with the CRT Cultural Left antiracists and the Hell with the real racists too!

There’s nothing wrong with antiracism or better yet, nonracism. I like the word nonracism better than antiracism, as the modern version has poisoned the word to where it’s not even a good thing any more. Further, antiracism seems to mean that one must be consumed with a constant war against racism wherever it rears its ugly head. I don’t agree with that. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have better things to do than to use up all my energy battling racist assholes.

Racism will never go away anyway, so in that sense the modern antiracists are either attacking windmills with spears, or worse, racism has become their very own White Whale. The best response is probably to line up with neither the antiracists nor the racist bastards and instead to simply drop out of the war. That doesn’t mean refusing to take a side. It means trying not to be racist yourself and opposing real racism at least in your mind while somewhat dropping out of the interminable war against the racist Leviathan.

But most of the principles of original Civil Rights Movement of Rosa Parks, the Little Rock Seven, James Meredith, SNCC, Martin and even late Malcolm are righteous things, and those values are still very much worth holding. The Alt Left in general upholds the values of the early Civil Rights Movement or what we call the Second Liberation, with a couple of exceptions for overreach.

They’re Talking about Us, October 6, 2017

Here.

The site is called I Am Not Your Niga Higa: Contemplations of a Young Japanese-American.

Here is what he says about me:

Robert Lindsay – one of  the internet’s most notorious, bigoted “racial realists” also admitted that the idea that black women aren’t sexy is absolutely preposterous:

https://robertlindsay.wordpress.com/2010/04/16/who-says-black-chicks-are-ugly/.

Wow! One of the most notorious bigots on the Net? Jesus. There’s nothing like infamy I guess.

They won’t quit calling me this crap, will they? I work on Black political campaigns – I am a member of Culture of Change. My favorite group in Congress is the Black Political Caucus. I voted for Obama twice and even cried at his first election just because I am such a damned liberal. I supported the early Civil Rights Act, and I support all civil rights laws with the exception of affirmative action. I also oppose disparate impact – it’s got to go.

I am outraged that the SC threw out the Voting Rights Act. I am furious that Black voters are being disenfranchised across our land. I am angry that the Housing Rights Act is so little enforced. I am appalled and disgusted at the open racism of the Trump Administration, especially Jeff Sessions, an unreconstructed White racist right out of the Jim Crow era.

Trump’s mild anti-Black actions such as his tweets are slightly disgusting. He wants to get racist Whites all riled up to support him. How sickening. I am repulsed that Donald Trump was convicted of housing discrimination in refusing to rent to Blacks in New York City. This level of racism is repulsive. Martin Luther King is one of my heroes and so is late Malcolm X after he renounced separatism. I even like the Black Panthers. Not the racist New Black Panthers. The old ones like Huey and Stokely and the rest.

With a history like that, they dare to call me an anti-Black racist?! How many anti-Black racist White men do you know who fit my description? There’s no such thing.

Still a lot of Blacks keep calling me racist. I am tempted to call them ingrates and tell them to go to Hell and solve their own problems, as I am not going to help them anymore. But I keep getting pulled back. I am going to try to help US Blacks no matter how much they hate me. Sometimes you just have to do the right thing.

The site that linked to me seems to be focused on the most unlikely pairing of all, Asian men and Black women.

Modern American Buddhism and Evangelical Protestantism As Ancient Pagan Religions

The perverted Buddhism practiced by materialistic young Americans harkens back to the ancient feature or the old religions where one made prayers or gave offerings to get whatever one wanted, material or otherwise, whether for good or for evil.

A friend of mine went to a Buddhist meeting and was told that the essence of Buddhism was that you simply chanted and prayed to the Buddha for “whatever you want,” and examples were given of money, sex, power, a job, material objects or whatever.

It’s hard to believe that the actual Buddha himself would countenance such a coarse and vulgar attachment to the material world. The essence of Buddha’s teaching was to “get out of the wheel” – the wheel meaning the wheel of desire – and to attain a state of satori where you no longer desire, want or need much of anything beyond what is necessary for survival. Only by making such a clean break with earthly matters may one hope to attain enlightenment. As you can see, this American Buddhism is quite a perversion.

The frankly heretical modern Prosperity Gospel of Conservative Republican Evangelicals in America is obviously nothing more than a riff off the ancient “make a prayer or give an offering to your God for whatever it is that you want” – in this case, being America, of course everyone wants money and only money, as this is the only thing of matter or even value in American culture.

A quick look at the statements of Jesus, a man sworn to poverty and contemptuous of the rich, shows the perversion and outright heresy of Prosperity Doctrine.

Americans and Gun Massacres: We Asked for It, We Got It

We deserve every single one of these damned massacres until we get some sense and start banning or limiting access to these crazy guns. That sounds vicious, but a society that allows all of these high powered weapons to be flooded into its civilian population is obviously going to end up with these terrible mass shootings on a regular basis. We as a society are permitting these shootings and really even allowing, promoting and cheering them on by flooding the country with high powered guns. So we deserve this sort of thing.

For a while there, there was one gun massacre happening every other day or so. I believe a couple of years ago, they were running at one a day. They have slowed down now, but obviously they are continuing. Every one of those rednecks down there cheering for that country singer who supported flooding society with these guns got what they asked for. If they died or were hurt, they signed their death warrant or injury order. They asked for it, they got it.

I’m willing to agree that anyone in the concert who supported limiting these stupid guns is an innocent victim, and it’s outrageous that they were hurt or killed. I also feel sorry for the officers that were hurt and killed because I know that the overwhelming majority of police hate these guns and want them limited or banned. Cops are actually sensible on this position. It’s logical for them to take this position, as they are getting shot at with these guns and in some cases they are even outgunned by shooters.

There doesn’t seem to be any level of massacres or mass murders that will make Americans come to their senses on these guns. While the mass murders were running at 1/day, I kept thinking that at some point when enough bodies piled up, the polls would start moving our way. I don’t believe it ever happened. Hundreds of massacres later, it appeared that the polls had not budged one inch.

The Alt Left has had to go neutral on this stupid gun issue because so many Alt Leftists are gun kooks.

It’s like a mass psychosis has taken over our society.

Anyone want to make any bets that we will see any rational movement in the polls on this insane issue? I doubt if we will see even 1 point of movement in a good direction.

By the way, Senator Scalise got what he deserved. He’s a gun rights kookjob, right? He’s never voted for one sensible gun law in his life, and he’s supported flooding society with these miniature weapons of mass destruction in civilian society as long as he’s been in office. And like the idiot that he is, he got his ass shot, a logical consequence of this fool supporting turning the country into a teeming, festering armed camp. He’s walking with a walker now because he’s still very damaged from getting shot. No sympathy, Scalise. You got what you asked for, clown.

Unbelievably, when Scalise hobbled onto the Senate floor with his walker (one had to confess it was a sorry sight), this nutcase Congress was just getting ready to pass a “public health” bill (!) which included legalizing silencers on guns and certain kinds of armor piercing bullets. No matter what you think of cops, cops actually make sense on this issue. Overwhelming majorities of police logically oppose both silencers and obviously armor piercing bullets. They’ve been battling against these insane bullets for a long time. Both of these items put officers at risk, especially the bullets, as so many cops wear at least some body armor nowadays.

Unbelievably, some Republican Congressman stood up and said it was rather unseemly to market these crazy murderous items under the rubric of public health of all things. That was so outrageous that it even offended Republicans, so you know it must have been bad. And at least one Republican expressed doubt in putting the silencer language into the bill, saying that many LE organizations wanted the silencer legalization removed.

It was pretty unbelievable to read about a few Republicans standing up on the floor of Congress and actually saying something halfway sensible. I had to pinch myself to make sure I was really awake.

Reap what you sow, idiots! You morons deserve every bit of this bloody carnage you’re wallowing in. If you don’t want to get punched in the face, quit asking people to hit you. I think even a 2nd grader could figure that out, but it’s apparently beyond the grasp of most American adults.

Poland Talks Alt Left! Polish Left Political Journal Discusses the Alt Left movement with a Focus on My and Rabbit’s Writing: “Race Realism, Or Center-Left on Culture,” by Michael Smolen

Race Realism, Or Center-Left on Culture

Krytyka Polityczna

Two marginal racist bloggers from the US claim to start a new movement on the Left.

We are beautifully different on the Left, and it’s one of the great things about us.. Each leftwing tendency focuses on a slightly different target group and offers a slightly different view of the world situation. So it is worthwhile to rise above the divisions, often driven more by personal conflict than actual ideology, and to open ourselves up to the entire spectrum of the leftwing media, all the way from liberal center-left to very radical. Disagreement is natural, and ferment is creative. Sometimes, nevertheless, people on the left advocate disappointing ideologies that are hard for the rest of us to get behind.

THE LATEST FASHION

The article started out interesting anyway: “I would like to criticize the leftwing of the Vistula backwater for not being aware of the latest leftwing tendencies emanating from our leftwing brethren from the Fatherland of the World Creative Class” – begins an article about the “Alt Left” written by Dr. Hab. Jaroslaw Tomasiewicz which appeared in New Citizen, a Polish leftwing social justice magazine. I regard foreign influences as inevitable and often useful, so naturally I was interested in this new leftwing movement outside the mainstream which has so far escaped my attention.

After today often encountered failure characteristics “Hipster-Left”, focused on easy wojenkach culture, the author writes about the new collective actor on the political scene, “The Alt Right – a rebirth of the “Old Hard Right” – ethnopolitical, traditionalist, populist – in a new postmodern form. A sort of return to the roots. And the Alt Right managed to overcome the Mainstream Left on its own home turf: to win the support or the workers by emphasizing economics and de-emphasizing cultural issues. Think a somewhat obsolete Thomas Frank.

A flashing red light at this point heralds a warning. Did Donald Trump really gain the support of part of the White working class through the efforts of the teenage racist trolls under the leadership of Richard Spencer – the elegant (at least when not performing a Seig Heil), erudite, and informal leader of the Alt Right?

You are probably thinking of the Centrist Democrats so disliked by Tomasiewicz. It seems however that the notion that the anti-elitist mood of working class Trump voters (many of whom supported Obama in the past) was powered by the notions of the Alt Right leader Spencer is not only factually questionable but also overly bleak in that it elides the appeal of Trump to a section of the electorate steeped in US nationalism. Or perhaps this is just a problem of the Old Left?

Tomasiewicz :

Some believe that the challenge posed by the Alt Right requires a symmetrical response: the creation of an alternative to the Mainstream Left emphasizing the forgotten foundations of Leftism, such as the primacy of economics over culture, the relationship of the base to the superstructure, and a return to the Marxian thesis that ‘existence shapes consciousness.’

Next there is a quote from a manifesto from Alternative Left writer Robert Lindsay proclaiming,

We will be leftwing on economic matters […] but rather Centrist in the sphere of culture.

Tomasiewicz later cites another vague point in Lindsay’s manifesto of the Alternative Left. This vision paints a picture of the Social Democratic movement distanced from the alleged excesses of Cultural Left, materialistic in the old style, although “small and diverse” – which, although it should not be imitated in the dark (we as Poles have common sense), nevertheless deserves our at least with fingers crossed.

RACIAL REALISM

So what’s wrong with this picture? More than you’d expect. The author refers to two online sources for information about the Alt Left, and clicking on either of them reveals some rather disturbing content. The Altleft.com site notes at the top of the page that it is The Left Wing of the Alt Right. Nothing dziwnegi therefore that it is enough time to go through the lengthy scraps to find the few real gems. In the text quoted by Tomasiewicz, we find this passage:

Though I disagree with him on some ideological points…It just so happens that I support Richard Spencer and repeatedly defended him when some oversensitive (and often sanctimonious) factions or some prominent individuals of the AltRight unsuccessfully tried to sacrifice him to improve the image of the movement.

In another text by the author of the site (who goes by the pseudonym “Rabbit”) in response to an appeal to downplay the racial aspect of the Alternative Left brand, he said:

The Alt Left always been about race realism and gender realism. This is the whole fucking nail on the head!

What is race realism? It’s the familiar old and frightening idea that believes in biological differences between “races” of people, eg. in terms of IQ, which it stipulates as very important for races to gain social or political significance. AltLeft.com openly promotes White Nationalism, and at the same time is quite honest, which clearly shows in the title of one of his posts talking about the “unreality” of nonracist “race realism”. The post notes the hypocrisy of the supposedly nonracist race realists and asks a rhetorical question:

“What’s wrong with hatred anyway?”

What of the second author of the Alternative Left manifesto commented on by Tomasiewicz? Robert Lindsay is a prolific blogger who refers to himself as a “liberal race realist” (the title of his previous ideological project), who rejects Political Correctness and “Cultural Marxism” and in their stead proposes “positive White identity” and masculinity for men (to fight Gender Feminism and Radical Feminism).

Once again though – it is not difficult to see where Lindsay is really coming from. Although in the manifesto quoted by Tomasiewicz, Lindsay rejects “racist fascism”, it begins with an attack on the Black Lives Matter movement and ridicules people who talk about White privilege or have an “obsession about structural racism.”

According to Lindsay, to belong to Alt Left, one should accept “racial realism”, which is one of the three pillars of Alt Left ideology – the other two are leftwing views on economics, to which Lindsay moreover dedicates little space, and a special form of moral libertinism who boils down to formally supporting the basic rights of minorities combined with a gut hatred against the movements that are fighting for those very rights.

Lindsay seems to be less directly hateful – and more eccentric – than Rabbit, but his journalism nevertheless includes discussions about the abominations of gay sexual practices, alleged reasons why women cannot lead Western civilization, and complaints about aggressive and obnoxious “Jewy Jews” who are themselves responsible for anti-Semitism.

As for the Alt Left, this is all we need to know about it right here. Tomasiewicz refers only to Lindsay and the author of a blog about the “Left Wing of Alt Right” because that’s all there is to the Alternative Left. Otherwise, the concept still appears occasionally as a rhetorical device in journalism, primarily as an insult. So the entirety of this new and noteworthy movement is a small group of readers of two marginal blogs that are attempting to enrich the standard White Nationalism of the Alt Right with an aversion to neoliberalism and a promotion of anti-feminist libertarianism (the latter being merely a rejecting the traditionally conservative views of women).

LEFT PRIEST JOHN

The detailed reasons why this leftwing website published a fictitious post about a couple of marginal racists in the chronicle New Citizen are not something that should concern readers. Suffice to say that it is difficult to believe in the sincerity of the author, who was after all the one who first discovered the sites of these bloggers. Why did he go out of his way to ferret out these marginal bloggers? Nevertheless, I do not think however that one could accuse the editor-in-chief of tolerance for “race realism,” nor is the readership enthusiastic about this concept.

The case recalls to me deeper concerns of some Polish Left intellectuals’ dislike for the “Left of Manners” or Cultural Left. Often it is not so much about the demands of this faction but more about the alleged incompatibility of this project with the conservative nature of the Polish people. These charges are often simply unfair.

For this often based on fantasies – Maciej Gdula in Political Critique accurately dismantled the idea of the conservatism of the people that is shared by anti-elitist liberals as well as the current anti-elitist Left. A plea to keep the Left only about the workers and to reject helping different minorities seems particularly unfair when we look at the development in recent years of leftwing movements and characters (like Total in Poland or Bernie Sanders in the US), fully and harmoniously integrating cultural issues and economics.

The spectacular failure of this article on the “Alternative Left” to resonate on the Polish Left brings to light another problem. This article published in the New Citizen is the modern equivalent of the medieval legend about the state ruled by Father John, a Christian enclave somewhere in the distant Orient.

We can see that the Cultural Left is an imaginary issue on the Left in anecdotes written by various intellectuals as diverse as Remigiusz Okraska, Stephen Twardoch and David Wildstein that the notion of the good old-fashioned Polish people who do not care about these newfangled cultural oddities is every year moving further from reality.

Tomasiewicz article, in which the role of Father John played the Richard Spencer, stands out as an apology for some particularly nasty and in the Polish context completely unacceptable notions such as race realism (perhaps even our extremist ONR does not openly promote the idea of biological racism). We need only barely scrape the surface of almost any “Morally Centrist” manifesto’s concern for ordinary people to see the usual hatred and disgust for certain disadvantaged groups – sometimes consciously  but more often probably not. In this situation, to put on a mask of folk naiveté seems to be at best frivolous and at worst insincere and wicked, and we have not even begun to deal with the extreme views of of Rabbit of AltLeft.com which go so much further than that.

Robert Stark Interviews Pilleater about Psychosocialism

Just listened to this. It’s from May, four months ago, but I just got around to listening to it now. Psychosocialism is not about socialism or any economic doctrine. Instead it is about Erik Erikson’s psychosocial stages of development, which is similar to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs that so many are familiar with. I like Maslow’s hierarchy, and I like Erickson. This is about the psychology of human development through the lifespan. It’s not about economics.

I never could understand what Heidegger was on about with his Dasein stuff. Maybe someone can help me out here.

I have heard of Alain de Botton, but I am not sure exactly who is or what he writes about. I believe he is an author.

Paul Fussell’s book or books on the American class system are classics that ought to be read by everyone, including me, even though I haven’t gotten around to that yet. I had an ex who was really into that book. I imagine you can never understand US society well until you start to get a handle on our class system that permeates everything in our land and every moment of our existence whether we want it to or not.

I cannot recommend Roger Devlin’s short work Sexual Utopia in Power highly enough. The document I have is a pdf that’s only ~35 pages. It shows so well how feminism has ruined the West and Western women and furthermore how feminism has dramatically changed the sexual marketplace. People love to hate Game and the Game/PUA crowd, but the truth is that this movement was forced to develop the way it did due to the realities of how feminism changed the sexual marketplace, and yes, it is a marketplace, trust me on that one. So the feminists really created Game and the PUA jerks. Reap what you sow, ladies! The PUA/Game philosophy is ugly, but the point these men are making is that this nasty project is the only thing that is going to work nowadays given how feminists have turned the sexual marketplace upside down. You either learn Game and go along with at least some of its postulates or you lose out with women. The choice is that stark.

I do not know much about Andy Nowicki other than that he is one of these new writers out of Chip’s new publishing house, which also features Ann Sterzinger. I am told that both Nowicki and Sterzinger are excellent authors who have produced some fine novels, but both are associated with the Alt Right for some crazy reason.

It’s hard to imagine Ann as a racist, so I have no idea why she tied herself up in this mess. I do know that Ann hates the Left, whatever the Hell that means to her, but I have no idea why she hates it, I mean us. She blasted me recently for being a Leftist. I guess that some evil or horrible thing somehow.

Andy’s different, and his motivation may be racial, but I do not know enough about him. Andy also hates the Left and liberalism, but I have no idea what he means by that either.

Given how much Ann and Andy hate the Left, which means me (keep in mind that that Alt Left is definitely a Left movement, as odd as it may be), I am wondering if I should even bother to read them. Why read my ideological adversaries? I hear enough of that swill as it is.

A lot of people who didn’t seem very racist seem to be aligning with the Alt Right for some weird reason. These folks are mostly Gen X’ers, often embittered, cynical and nihilistic ones. Even Matt Forney, formerly pretty agnostic on the race issue, has gone over  pretty seriously to the race project of the New Right. He also ferociously hates the Left to the point of becoming a strong advocate for the Republican Party. 

I am thinking a lot of these young hipster types have gotten tied up in this Alt Right stuff simply because it is the latest groovy rebellious or even revolutionary trend. At this point, the PC/SJW Cultural Left is the Establishment, so going Alt Right is a way of rebelling against the Establishment. It’s a new counterculture, if you will. A lousy counterculture, but a counterculture nonetheless.

This is what it means to be a hipster nowadays? Support Trump and the Republican Party of all things? The mind boggles. The 1960’s is calling. They want their Revolution back. And so do I.

I like Pilleater a lot. He has been identifying himself as Alt Left for some time now, though recently he has been modifying that to Alt Center. The Alt Center is the newest political project kid on the block. I am not sure exactly what it is. It’s the Alt Left minus some of our Left views and with a lot more of the Alt Right added in instead. I suppose you could call it an ideological marriage between the Alt Left and the Alt Right. What I have seen so far is not that bad other than support for Trump. They are not particularly racist. It’s not my cup of tea at the moment, but I am not opposed to it. I have to check out this Alt Center a lot more to see what they are on about.
