Alt Left: A Call for an Alliance with the PC/SJW Left against Trump and the Republican Party

RL: I will make alliance with any and all SJW’s against Trump and the Republican Party. They’re the real enemy. SJW’s are not our enemies. They are our people who have sadly become deranged. But anyone who thinks PC or SJW’s is the main threat is crazy.”

Tulio: That’s a good way of framing it. I was at the women’s march for my city yesterday and was struggling with how to feel about SJWs. I’m not exactly PC myself, and I have some views about masculinity/femininity/feminism/homosexuality that would get me excommunicated from that crowd. But I was willing to put those differences aside and march with them as a show of force against fascism. Now’s not the time for infighting within the resistance. There are bigger fish to fry.

I will agree with Tulio 100% here. Much of the Alt Left appears to be locked into a war against SJW’s. While it is understandable as a lot of these SJW’s are out and out idiots and fools, this is a very bad use of resources right now.

The Alt Left is a Left movement, and I would go so far as to say it is a movement of the Revolutionary Left. The enemy are blocking all efforts at peaceful change, so we are going to have to go beyond peaceful methods. That doesn’t mean killing people or even seriously hurting people, but a little property damage never hurt anybody. And destroying the property of our class enemies, the rich and the corporations, seems like an Alt Left no-brainer to me.

The Alt Left is not out to reform the system via peaceful change or elections, as the enemy is blocking all efforts at electoral change. The system is so rotten anyway that any peaceful change seems dubious, with new ugly faces probably just replacing the old ugly faces. Instead we are out to destroy the whole system and replace it with something else.

The Alt Left position is that we need to get rid of this elite and replace them with new people. The governments across the board, the MSM media, the DNC Democrats, the career government people in the CIA, Pentagon and State Department, they all need to go.

Any Left or radical democratic governments or people in government or media can stay. Who should we replace the rotten ancien regime with? I would say to replace them with something like Bernie Sanders supporters. Yes, they are mostly SJW’s, but the people they would be replacing are so much worse.

The MSM media needs to be destroyed and replaced with some form of New Media, ideally a Radical Democratic Media.

The Alt Left should use peaceful methods where we can. For an example of our peaceful revolutionary methods, look at the lawsuits launched by the Green Party to ask for recounts in the obviously fraudulent elections of 2016. Those lawsuits are an Alt Left revolutionary way of taking out the system because at this point, with Republican electoral fraud going back nearly 30 years and even the Democrats now getting in on the fraud, it is the whole rotten electoral system is riddled with fraud from top to bottom that the whole apparatus needs to be taken out.

Note that no actual recounts were actually done in three states, and Republicans fell all over themselves trying to stop the recounts. A nation where possibly fraudulent elections are banned from being recounted by law is not any sort of democracy in any way whatsoever. So we can see that the Greens’ use of peaceful methods was completely thwarted and useless which points out my view that peaceful change is useless since the enemy is blocking all efforts at peaceful change.

When I say Revolutionary Left, I do not mean putting in a Left dictatorship. Instead the Alt Left would support something more like the Radical Democracy that the Greens are calling for. The Greens probably hate the Alt Left, but we have more in common with them than they think. The Alt Left will certainly make alliance with any Greens if they will tolerate us. They are all SJW’s, but we have bigger things to worry about now.

Even for the Left Wing of the Alt Right, I realize that a lot of these people are Whites who are not fond of Blacks, Browns and other non-Whites. That actually does not bother me a whole lot, although that is not my position in any way. Obviously these folks are locked into a war with SJW’s, PC people and especially the antiracists. All of these groups are excellent enemies, and they much earned a lot of much-deserved enmity. But I would say that even for the Left Wing of the Alt Right, the primary enemy even in race terms should be the Rich, especially the White Rich.

The White Rich are the class enemies of the Left Wing of the Alt Right. They will always be the primary enemy. I certainly think that any beefs these people have with non-Whites or antiracist SJW’s are of much lesser importance than the primary class war which has heated up to such a point that we are close to an objectively revolutionary situation. Although I am not speaking to most of the LWAR crowd due to their support of Trump, it might be interesting to see how they feel about my advice.

The Alt Left motto at this juncture should be: Make the country ungovernable!

No, DSL and Cable Companies Do Not Compete

EPGAH: And no, the cost of providing WiFi access is nonzero, otherwise you would open up your router, turn off the password, right? WiFi is also slower than hardwire by at least a factor of 10. Hell, that’s the whole idea of MAC Addresses.

Plus, the more people on one access point, the slower it is for everyone. Think of a congested highway – maybe China’s week-long traffic-jam if it helps? – vs. having a country road all to yourself.

Most importantly, at some point, it connects into the Internet by an actual hardwire, and that line has to be paid for, even if it doesn’t have to be maintained.

DSL and Cable fight each other, speed vs. price (Cable is faster, DSL is cheaper) except on university grounds, where AT&T (DSL) is given a LEGAL monopoly. People who can afford it go T1 or even T3 if they have more money than brains, and give the slowpokes on Cable and DSL the Finger.

Satellite IS a natural monopoly, because no one in their right minds would accept speeds just over dial-up if they had ANY other option! BUT if you are THAT far out in the sticks, you have no other viable option. It’s that or dial-up. Or you can pay some ridiculous 5-figure sum to get Cable or DSL to extend their service a quarter mile. This is not hypothetical, I was actually IN such a situation a few years back.

Full Disclosure: I have Cable, 50 mbps. I like my speed and I would not appreciate a bunch of freeloaders slowing it down for me. And no, I would not trust an “If You Like Your Speed, You Can Keep Your Speed” slogan.

I am not sure why universities would give access to a single provider, but universities usually do this with everything. They buy their hamburgers from one source. Hell, they buy just about everything from a single source. Anyway, is there any evidence that the DSL company is charging the students more due to its monopoly? At any rate, it might be interesting to see what the university’s argument for allowing a single provider is. They probably just think it’s simpler that way since they have single providers for most everything, as it’s obviously simpler.

What difference would it make if wi-fi costs money? The cities are trying to offer it for free to their residents (to be paid out of the city’s funds), and the competition-hating Republicans flipped and passed laws banning cities from offering wi-fi to their citizens, as it was thought to be serious competition for the legislator-whores’ beloved DSL and cable johns.

DSL and cable absolutely do not compete on price, service or anything. They each have a monopoly and there is no competition at all. They both offer a total shit product with total shit service for an insanely excessive price. Fact is that in countries where the state is running it the speeds are vastly higher than ours, so much higher it is not even funny.

If you opened up DSL to competition, yeah you would see some real competition. I remember back when we had dial-up, we had the wildest competition. They were all competing on price, service, everything! It was a consumer paradise!

Neither DSL, cable or satellite compete with each other in any way, shape or form. They all offer ridiculously slow speeds, awful customer service and a preposterously overpriced product, and none of them are competing with each other!

Let’s see if DSL and cable companies compete on customer service. Obviously they do not compete at all because the DSL and cable companies are routinely rated the worst in the country at customer service. They are also routinely rated the worst companies in the land. Not coincidentally, they come out last in both surveys because they each have monopolies, one in DSL and the other in cable. When you have a monopoly, you don’t have to have good customer service because the better your customer service is, the more it costs you and the less profits you make.

Really the only reason that any business offers good customer service is because they have to! Most if not all businesses would love to treat all their customers like complete crap because you make more money that way.

The only reason businesses are decent to customers at all is because they have to be due to competition! If you treat your customers like crap, your customers will start migrating over to your competitor to do business with them. I punish a few local businesses that way for treating me like crap. Not coincidentally, every business ever punished that way by me was run by someone from the Indian subcontinent – one by Pakistanis and two by Punjabis. Monopolists generally offer horrific customer service because people have nowhere else to go. And the worse you treat your customers, the more money you make, as good customer service costs money and cuts into profits.

I suppose the state could just buy out the phone lines, cable lines or satellites (though the satellites are probably state owned anyway) and then allow whoever wants to to utilize them to compete for cable, DSL or satellite. I suppose if they wanted to offer faster speeds, maybe they could rent out more of the pipe. I am trying to think of how we could do this. It’s long been known that our Internet service and cellphone services are both complete shit mostly due to the fact that they are privately run.

However, there is now quite a bit of competition in cell service opening up. I’m not sure how that is happening. I believe that the big providers are renting out some of their product as sort of franchisees. Anyway it seems to be working. It seems like there is a lot of competition in cellphone service now.

However, for some time, there were only a few providers, and as with cable, DSL and satellite above, they had agreed not to compete. All of the cellphone companies were offering diabolical contracts, ridiculous pricing and utter shit service – they had all agreed to provide a shit product for a ridiculously high price. Non-compete agreements are extremely common in capitalism. They probably ought to be illegal, but the anti-competition loving capitalists love these agreements as much as they love price-fixing. At some point, the non-compete agreements seem to have broken down, and now they are competing a lot.

Personally I find that the fact that each cell network built its own set of cell towers to be one the stupidest “accomplishments” of modern US capitalism. So we have four or five different cell phone tower networks where we only need one! Retarded! There should only be one cellphone tower network, and it ought to be either regulated by the state or owned by the state and rented/leased out to private companies to compete over public lines. I very much like the idea of the state owning the backbones of industries and then leasing/renting out space to private companies to use them to compete.

The problem is that the people often get ripped off. We own the airwaves, but we auction them off for pennies on the dollar to crooked media companies which we have allowed to concentrate to the point where all of our news comes from six different billionaire networks who all say the same thing. Sort of like Pravda or People’s Daily under Communism. One source of news, and it has one party line. I honestly feel that our modern monopolized, billionaire-owned news is not much better than the media under Communism. We get about the same diversity of views in either.

Anti-Communist Lies about Vietnam, Belarus and Ukraine

Actually Pretty Funny: The problem is the middle of the city was originally designed by Frenchies, and it had never been flooded. I heard your argument too. Let me clarify, since there was no regulation for 30 years, people built, and built and built with permission from their political connections, until there is no more more land left for the water to reach the water-table. Moreover, the water for that is lackluster. And since everyone has political connections, everyone has built, except my family who was kinda…samurai.

People endure, of course, pretending that’s life is beautiful in that wretched condition. Until the infrastructure collapses totally, and then the political chaos comes like in East Europe and Russia of the 1990s. And then depressed and enraged people kill each other heartily, like in Russia.
The middle of the city:

Funds for Water drainage is lackluster

You are quite unreasonable.

In Vietnam, the Vietcong had to scare the Indians, the Chinese to quit the country to somewhat make it work. See photo.

Saigon under the rain.

Of course people live to, Socialists have roads too, but…A large chunk of the money was cut before being pumped into the economy.

Ok so a crappy Communist government that wasn’t even Communist because it was corrupt and didn’t even put any regulations on anyone like a Communist government is supposed to screwed up and left the situation totally unregulated and let people do whatever they wanted to and it fucked up everything.

In other words, a totally free market situation with no government oversight which is typical of 3rd World countries screwed up everything.

You know what 3rd world capitalist countries are like? Even worse. They have no regulations on anything ever because that’s the way capitalism often works in the 3rd World. Everyone gets to do what they want.

Also it quite common in former colonies that the stuff that the colonial power built was very made but the stuff that the newly decolonized independent government made is junk. This is typical, even in 3rd world capitalist countries.

I have known people in the Philippines and those roads flood all the time. So capitalist Philippines is better than Communist Vietnam?

I will tell you one more thing. Capitalists do not believe in flood control or roads or any of that. They always starve the government of money because they don’t want to pay taxes or out of anti-government or small government ideology. The only people who believe in spending lots of money on public works are leftwingers, socialists, Communists and even liberals. They believe in Big Government. The only way to get all those roads and public works done is to have Big Government.

Actually Pretty Funny: I don’t hate Lukashenko, but you need to know that Socialism only works in very, very, rare cases. And you don’t even know what like underneath. Do Belarus have road problems, of course you don’t know. You need photo for it to work.

You lied again. I Googled “roads Belarus.” I found nothing remarkable that said there  were any  road problems in Belarus. I saw photos and videos of roads in Belarus and frankly, they could have been driving in the US. The roads look and feel exactly like our roads.

In the video above, the videographer is apparently going from Russia to Belarus. The road in Russia is completely terrible  –  the worst you can imagine. They go over the border to Belarus and the road suddenly becomes fantastic. So it seems like you are just lying.

Actually Pretty Funny: Since East Ukrainians were quite tired of the own industry, when people of other regions rose up, they didn’t even lift their hands. Being privileged with useless industry is not very fun, people still had to pay for the old (mis)management Soviet class. Of course they would have fought tooth and nail to protect the system 20 years ago, since the industry was still quite new by Soviet standards back then.

I caught you in another lie. You said that Ukraine had not grown like Belarus because it retained Soviet industry. In fact, the place that retained Soviet industry was Belarus! The place that privatization failed was Ukraine. Ukraine failed horribly in privatization because for 25 years they have been electing thieves who have been stealing every nickel in the place. Going from Communism to capitalism was a disaster for Ukraine. That is why the people in the East are so nostalgic for the USSR.

Actually Pretty Funny: But time changes, and people evolve. I mean Poland has evolved and has become a role model. People tend to look around and up.

https://www.reinisfischer.com/img/ukrainevspolandgdp.png

You are lying again. You are comparing two countries that both did Shock Therapy and completely privatized. In one, Poland, it worked very well. In Ukraine, another, it was a failure. You are trying to say that Poland is capitalist while Ukraine is still Communist, but that’s not true. I don’t know how you make an anti-Communist point by comparing two capitalist countries that privatized.

Anti-Communist and Anti-Socialist Lies about Venezuela, Cuba and the USSR

Actually Pretty Funny: People from some island chased off Maduro perhaps because they had been better off before Chavismo:

Can’t expect islanders to act and think the same as people from the inland.

I caught you in another lie. Those people are not protesting saying that things were better before Chavez. Objectively they weren’t. Of course not. And we have mountains of facts to prove that. In fact, before Chavez came in, they were probably starving. Right before Chavez came in 1990, I was listening to the radio and they reported that 91% of Venezuelans lived in poverty and could afford only one meal a day.

There is a full-blown economic crisis that is going on now for a variety of reasons. However, all of those food products in short supply are made or imported by capitalist firms. So the capitalist firms are refusing to make or import things to give to stores to sell. Instead, most of the stuff they are making or importing goes straight out of the country to Colombia or gets diverted immediately to the black market. The black market sprung up because the capitalists sabotaged the economy on purpose like they did in Chile in 1970-173.

The protesters are even out in the streets as housewives banging kitchen pans together. This is exactly what they did in Chile under Allende when the private sector and US sabotaged the economy. So if there are not enough goods in the store, blame the capitalists who import or make those products. The government does make any of that food or any of those items. PS the Venezuelan business opposition has admitted that they sabotaged the economy. A spokesman recently said that the business sector “refused to participate” in the economy. In other words, they sabotaged it.

The crisis is caused by a lot of things, but one of the main things is that the government will not float its currency. Instead it is relying on a fixed exchange rate. This is currency politics. It is outside of Left-Right views. Floating the currency could well be very unpopular, and it will probably cause all sorts of problems, so the government is scared to do it. So yes, the government making some bad policy decisions, but it has nothing to do with capitalism or socialism or any of that.

Actually Pretty Funny: Well, let me tell you this: last time I see, the Cubans still use typewriters.

I caught you in more lies too. You said in Cuba they still have typewriters, not computers. So I Googled “typewriters Cuba” and I got nothing at all. You would think if this was a problem, the exiles were all over it. It seems like having to use a typewriter since there is no computer is not much of a problem in Cuba.

Then I Googled some more about computers in Cuba. I got stuff about computers and Internet. The Net is not very good in part because of the US embargo which killed a project to build an undersea data pipe between Florida and Cuba. Instead they built one to Venezuela. Turns out 30% of Cubans have Internet access. I have seen articles about cellphones in Cuba. Almost everyone has a cellphone now and they hang around hotspots texting all day. Turns out that 25% of Cuban households have computers. There are 971,000 computers in Cuba. There are definitely problems with Net access there but they do have wi-fi and satellite. You lied again.

Actually Pretty Funny: Of course one would come up with some pretty innovations on his own, like the Russians did Sputnik, but Vietnamese students in Soviet Russia used to buy Russian girls with Chinese made jeans. What’s the point of launching satellites into space without being able to make your own jeans? You can live a secluded life, totally on your own, but you can’t force it down everyone else throat.

Make your own jeans, for your own people.

You said they never made jeans in the USSR. This is just untrue. I have seen many photos of the USSR and East Bloc and one thing that always struck me was that everyone seemed to be wearing nice, decent clothes. Not really fancy but decent. I never expected that. I have seen a lot of video of Cuba and everyone appears to be pretty well dressed. Looks like they are wearing fairly new clothes and they are all sorts of different styles and colors are around. This shocked me again as I thought they would be dressed in rags. The truth was that of course they made jeans, even blue jeans, in the USSR, but I suppose people craved those designer jeans from the US or wherever. So it’s not true that they didn’t make jeans. You lied again.

Benefits and Problems of Dengism in China

Well, that was Mao’s view.

I think the Cultural Revolution should just weed out the capitalist and reactionary elements in the party, that’s all. The Chinese Cultural Revolution went way too far and did a lot of bad things.

There haven’t been any cultural revolutions (not really anyway) ever since. I guess Stalin did in 1938 but he also killed all sorts of innocent people.

You don’t need constant cultural revolutions to preserve Communism.

As far as Deng Xiaoping’s model goes, China is still a Communist country in a very many ways. It’s market socialism. I think you need a market even in a Communist society. Otherwise everything goes wrong. The market should be used as a tool for harnessing the productive forces. The market would provide a lot of readily available goods, a pricing mechanism, etc. But the market needs to serve society, not the other way around. If the Party is in control, they could use the market as a tool and if any sector of the market ceased to serve society, the Party could step in and modify that sector, take it over or even shut it down.

But there are all sorts of problems with Dengism. Deng got rid of free health care in China. I believe in China, you need to pay to go to the doctor or get medicine. Millions of people are dying in China from lack of healthcare. This is the move that almost the entire world has cheered wildly for – Dengism. Have you ever heard the Western press say one bad thing about Dengism? How bout millions of people dying from lack of healthcare? Why should we cheer for that? What sort of person are you if you cheer for that? Capitalists cheer for stuff like that. Capitalists see millions of people dying for lack of healthcare, and they stand up and cheer. See why I have such a low opinion of capitalists?

Also sexism came back in a very big way under Deng. Men started treating women a lot worse than they did under Mao. I do not know why that is, but capitalism just seems to bring out the worst in people.

Of course the crime rate absolutely exploded under Deng.

My Vision of the Alternative Left

This is from the group description of Alt-Left, a great Alternative Left group on Facebook. The groups are different. Realist Left is a lot like this one but with possibly more of an economic focus. They are probably also not as leftwing as the Alt-Left group and are more focused on social democracy than harder Left projects. Alt-Left Manifesto group was started by Ryan England and some of the people behind the Alt- Left group. I haven’t been there much, but here is where I think they are posting position statements, etc.

Alt Left is a bit more disturbing to me and it seems a lot more Left Wing of the Alt Right. There’s rightwing anti-Communist propaganda, a very emphasis on HBD, a lot of talk about race, support for Milo, a disturbing amount of support for Trump. There’s also people using words like nigger. This is the largest Alt Left group on Facebook, with over 1,000 members. But I don’t know about these people. It was founded by Abel Dean, who makes a lot of posts on race realism and HBD. I don’t know about this guy.

This is a group for those on the economic left, like socialists or communists, who are done with the mainstream left and their SJW, Postmodern, etc stances but also can’t stand the alt-right and fascists. That means no social justice warriors, postmodernists, or fascists/white nationalists/Nazis. Also no capitalists. Other than that discuss as you like.

I like this introduction.

Down with the Cultural Left, SJW’s and Postmodern obscurantism, but at the same time, down with the Alt Right and the fascists. No SJW’s and postmodernists, but also no fascists, White nationalists or Nazis!

Exactly. The Hell with both of them. Let both ends burn.

I like this recipe. I think I’m going to try it at home. Smells like teen spirit!

Bee Extinction: Capitalism as a Suicide Pact

From a mailing list I am on.

I’ve been wanting to write about this forever, but it’s so depressing that I have not been able to write about it. The truth is that we are wiping out bees in this country. Bees are also going out in Europe, but we may be able to stop the process there. I do not know what is happening in the rest of the world. 80% of flowering crops and a majority of our food crops rely on bees for pollination. The are going extinct mostly because of pesticides called neonicotinoids or neonics for short.

These are made by Bayer and Monsanto, two of the worst companies on Earth. These two ultra-evil corporations are trying to merge to form the Beezlebub of all Corporations. That merger, among many others, needs to be stopped. The Obama Administration is a Corporate Democrat Administration and as such they tend to approve most mergers. They are also often rather poor on environmental issues. In particular, they are quite bad on issues affecting Big Agriculture because Big Agriculture heavily controls the Corporate Democrats. These Democrats are also in bed in the worst way with Big Ag and chemical corporations like Dow, Bayer and Monsanto. It’s so bad I might call the Democratic Party “the party of Monsanto.” 

Bees are going extinct because of unfettered use of these pesticides, at the least the neonics and  possibly others as well. Some pesticides act as bee birth control rendering bees infertile. Others cause neurological damage and make it so that bees cannot find their way back to the hive. I’m not sure what happens when they can’t make it back to the hive but perhaps they die because they eat honey. Certainly the hive itself becomes abandoned. Worse the pesticides are systemic, so the bees are being effected even when they are not being sprayed.

The causes of Colony Collapse Disorder which is destroying bee colonies across the land has become increasingly clear in recent years with ongoing research. Studies in particular have proven that neonics are definitely a cause of the problem. Corporations have spent millions on fake studies, lying, lobbying and buying people off (campaign donations) to lie to say that neonics are not harming bees.

People have been yelling at the Obama people for years now about this, but they have refused to budge. The EPA has refused to study the issue, putting off studies into the future over and over. I believe it may have done some studies now, but I am not sure. Bottom line is the government refuses to even study the issue much less do anything about it.

On the other hand, much more progressive EU has taken a hard line and banned a number of neonic pesticides. This is because European states and the EU are much less corporate-controlled than the US government is.

We really need to get the EPA to ban these pesticides before we wipe out all the bees in the country if not the Earth, but Obama seems to be dead-set against it as he is bought off by large chemical and agribusiness corporations.

Just as bad, Hillary is just as much of a corporate Democrat as Obama is, or perhaps she is even worse of one. 

If we wipe out the bees in this country, we might be looking at a serious food situation. I have no idea what might happen but things could get very bad very fast. This is the sort of thing that leads to mass disease, death, declining health, social unrest including rioting, radicalized politics, increased authoritarianism and environmental and other catastrophes. If we really wipe out most of our plant food sources, we could be looking at societal collapse of some sort. Even if that doesn’t happen, it would still be very bad. Under capitalism, humans seem to resemble lemmings racing heedlessly off a cliff to their deaths, apparently chasing hallucinations of dollar bills that vanish as they plunge to their demise.  Lenin said the capitalist will sell you the very rope you use to hang him with. He also said a capitalist would sell his own mother if he could.

I am starting to think that capitalism looks like sort of a society-wide suicide pact.

For years, we’ve been warning that bees are dying by the millions. But now, for the first time ever, seven species of bees have been added to the endangered list.1

The rusty patched bumble bee is a key pollinator that used to swarm all over the Midwest and Northeast, but now, due to habitat loss and pesticides, the unthinkable is happening: Some bees could go extinct.

A majority of our food crops and 80% of flowering plants rely on bees for pollination.2 That’s why we always say “No bees, no food.”

Now that bees are literally facing extinction, it’s time for the EPA to ban bee-killing pesticides once and for all.

In addition to the rusty patched bumble bee being recommended for listing as endangered in the continental U.S., seven native species of bees were listed in Hawaii as well. If those species are lost, we’ll also lose untold numbers of native plants.

The bee-killing pesticides that are helping to cause this devastation are harming bees in countless ways. Some pesticides cause bees to become infertile.3 Others disrupt their ability to fly and navigate, so they can’t find their way back to the hive.4

And because many of these pesticides are systemic—they are absorbed into every part of the plant—bees are exposed throughout the year, not just after a spraying.5

Rabbit, “Milo Inc. – Not One of Ours Either”

Another post from Rabbit’s site. This one on the execrable (((Milo Yiannopoulos))), who I really cannot stand. People are trying to say that (((Milo))) is Alt Left, but nope, (((Milo))) ain’t one of us! Sorry (((Milo)))! That’s because the Alt Right is trying to disenfranchise itself from (((Milo))), which actually makes sense. I mean (((Milo))) is a flamboyant homosexual who makes no secret of his penchant for taking large Black cocks up his ass. Well, I would say that goes against 100% of what the Alt Right stands for right there, no? (((Milo))) is part of the Breitbart wing of the Alt Right, which is barely even Alt Right at all. Instead it’s just Republican Party Base Trumpism.

I listened to a whole hour of (((Milo))) speaking on his Dangerous Faggot Tour (well at least he titled the traveling show correctly). He spoke at some university. It was quite bizarre.

He made a number of comments about what a great big fag he is how he likes Black cocks up the ass or sucking Black cocks or something along those lines. There was a fair amount of gay pornographic content in his talk. Anytime he talked about his love of Black dick, the mostly male Trumpist audience went nuts. So this is what Trumpers are for? Black cocks up the ass? Who knew? He talked about Trump. He talked about feminism. He talked about PC. He talked about SJW’s. He talked about Black Lives Matter. He made fun of the last four. He talked about his love of Black dick. He talked about his hatred of Hillary. I believed he proudly announced he was a Zionist which got a huge roar out of the crowd. He made lots of jokes. He was very entertaining.

At the end, I was very annoyed. He just stands up there and makes fun of SJW’s and urges everyone to vote for Trump and that’s it. Yes he hates feminism but why? Feminists looooooooooooove gay men. What’s the problem?

What I got out of this is that (((Milo))) is one of those not small faction of gay men who hates women. It’s a little known secret (Shh! Don’t tell the Cultural Left!) that quite a few gay men hate women. In fact, this has been known for quite some time, possibly over 100 years. So (((Milo)))’s hatred of feminism, which sounds disturbingly personal, is all wrapped up in his misogyny, which I get the feeling is considerable. And that left a bad taste in my mouth. You don’t like gender feminists, fine. But if you don’t like them because you are a depraved woman-hating queer, you’re just not so endearing to me. That’s just yucky. If you’re going to hate the Gender Fems, hate them for a good reason!

This whole (((Milo))) thing is just…stupid. Alt Rightists say he is engaging in a hostile takeover or the Alt Right on behalf of (((certain groups))), and they are probably correct. His purpose in the Alt Right is apparently to say hardly any of them are really serious about that White nationalism and that Jew-hating and you know that Hitler stuff because it’s all a big edgy joke. And by inserting a major gay Jewish figure into the Alt Right, he is trying to slay both the Antisemitism and the Homophobia of the Alt Right in one fell swoop. Well that’s a clever move, I must admit.

Honestly though I do not feel there is much substance here, and he feels way too rightwing for my tastes. So if you love (((Milo))), you’re voting for Trump…you love Israel…you hate Democrats…and you think Black cocks up the ass is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Well that’s quite an interesting project but it’s not coherent. In fact, it makes no sense at all. It’s the political equivalent to one of those modern art paintings where they splash a bunch of different colors of paint on a canvas and call it a painting. It’s nearly devoid of meaning, and what meaning it does have is annoying at best and toxic at worst.

(((Milo)))’s sort of a Postmodern Political Figure. It’s like he was created by Derrida. He doesn’t even make sense! And nevertheless, everyone loves him and thinks he is full of all this brilliant wisdom even though he’s incomprehensible and void of meaning anyway even if you could figure him out.

Milo Inc. – Not One of Ours Either

miloinc

I’ve noticed people trying to disassociate Milo Yiannopoulos and some of these other Libertarians from the Alternative Right, by branding them as part of the Alternative Left. 

weev

Not so fast. While we may be a tad more degenerate than the radical traditionalist factions of AltRight, we sure are not Libertarian capitalists (barf.) Milo and Co are not part of our little AltLeft netherworld either. Here are some simple and straightforward reasons why he’s not one of us:

  1. He is a Libertarian capitalist. Milo loves capitalism and the free market and always talks about it. He’s the kind of Republican who will make claims like “Democrats ruined Detroit.”  He’s the type who will brag about Silicon Valley companies as if they are still part of the US in any real sense…rather than just international entities that act in their own interests, which may or may not correlate with the interests of the country at a given time. The Alternative Left (to the extent it’s even a real thing) leans toward Scandinavian socialism, communism,  state capitalism, public works, social credit, etc….all things Milo would disapprove of.
  2. He’s not a race realist. Milo rejects identity politics altogether, in the tradition of Republicans who like to parrot Martin Luther King cliches about “color of skin” and “content of character.” The Alternative Left believes race is real (for practical purposes at least) and race matters. There is some disagreement about how to deal with that reality, which I have discussed elsewhere. Some of us just openly promote a White-Left futurism and others prefer to focus strictly on class struggle issues with the belief that this will minimize ethnic conflict over time. Others are National Bolshevik types. Milo doesn’t fall into any of these camps. He’s just a flamboyant Republican who thinks “Dems are the real racists.”
  3. He supports importing foreign tech workers as well as many of the other items on the globocorp agenda to sell us out. He loves immigration and at the most maybe just wants to cut it down a bit.
  4. From what I can tell, he supports neoconservative foreign policy or some milder version of it along with American exceptionalism and all that jazz. He’s Jewish and makes clear where his tribal loyalties are. I’m pretty sure we can leave it at that.

The only areas where there is any overlap is that he’s “anti-PC” and socially liberal as far as sexual depravity. Well, big deal. Almost everyone opposes the type of low hanging fruit loop, blue haired, fat acceptance, Tumblr feminists and diaper wearing furry activists that he targets. Milo simply is what he is, a Libertarian-Republican free speech advocate of the Breitbart variety with an aggressively marketed, highly successful personal brand. Milo has put himself out there and has done some good things in pushing back against speech police on college campuses, but he’s not “AltLeft” or AltRight. Glad we cleared that up.

Killary Clinton, Racketeering Gangster for Capitalism

Found on the Net:

Statement 1: The United States of America does not invade other countries to plunder and pillage. We don’t send our brave men and women around the world to steal oil, and that’s not even getting into the absurdity of what it would involve,” Hillary Clinton, 2016.

Statement 2: “Businesses like those represented here at this table create jobs, provide livelihoods, increase standards of living, give hope to individuals.. and what government should do, whether it’s in the United States or in Iraq is to be a good partner (to Big Business)Iraq is a business opportunity…” Hillary Clinton, Business Forum Promoting Commercial Opportunities in Iraq, 2011.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Hitlery’s lie in Statement 1 is completely proven to be false by her spill the beans confession below it. The starkness of this woman’s hypocrisy, lying and doublespeak are staggering.

From the same site:

Her contention that it is an “absurd” conspiracy theory that government and Big Business conspire together is undermined by her statement in 2011 that that is exactly what she thinks government should do… be a good “partner” for Big Business both in Iraq…at home.

Of course this fits right in with our previous piece on Smedley Butler talking about he was a gangster for corporate capitalism in Latin America 100 years ago.

More:

…Hillary Clinton is showing how desperate she is in the wake of her failing numbers and trust ratings among the public in this country. You can attribute that in part to the facts of her corruption slowly leaking out into the public view but you can also attribute that, I think, to her continually sticking to the bullshit line that the US never does anything overseas in any interests other than “humanitarian, democracy-building, freedom-seeking” intentions.

Even Republicans know the US isn’t the hooker with the heart of gold anymore. The taint of Bush/Cheney has spread like a cancer. Just ask Jeb about that one.

The fact that Hillary is still trying her best to serve as a racketeer and a gangster for capitalism is the one thing that holds her back more than any other aspect of her corrupt, soulless self and I would be willing to bet that is what lies at the heart of her extremely low trustworthiness ratings…

In short, she made this bed and now she has to lie in it naked and exposed for all to see what she really is: a war-mongering neocon who sold her soul to the MIC… She is a gangster and a racketeer, and she is for life. The only problem is, she’s a desperate gangster and racketeer and surrounded by a gaggle of other desperate gangsters and racketeers…

Exactly. That sums up this monster of a woman so well. Hitlery cannot be transformed. She’s incapable of change and she doesn’t care what the public or the voters think. She is out to promote her neoliberal, neoconservative corporate whore agenda and she doesn’t care whether any of us like it or not. She’s going to put her project in through Hell or high water and public opinion be damned.

Sort of like Obama…

California: How Illegal Aliens Ruin Everything

TRASH writes:

ROBERT I’m lower-middle class myself and no genius (I did graduate from college but not a good one) but how can Inca primitives from the jungles of South America steal the job of any able-bodied American who can read and write in English?

This is not a rhetorical question.

What is an Inca with 2nd grade education and no ability to speak English able to do better than a person born in the United States that somebody might actually hire them for?

They can’t do anything better except pick crops and yes they are better at that. They’re not better at anything else and in fact, in general, they are inferior workers. Illegal roofers do poor work. Illegal construction workers do notoriously poor work. A lot of the contracting work done here in California in recent decades is shoddy and has to be redone pretty quickly whereas before it lasted a long time. It’s not lasting long and falling apart because it’s done by illegals.

Low wage labor – you pay the illegals way less than you would pay the Whites.

Illegals do not complain. They put up with any shit and abuse you dole out to them.

Illegals are working in a lot of good-paying jobs now like roofing, painting, construction, carpentry, welding, drywalling. Who cares if a Mexican could take it over? These jobs paid working class Whites very good money.

The contractors who hire Whites all go out of business because they cannot compete with all the contractors hiring illegals. Most of the people who hire illegals are rich. Landlords hire illegals. My landlord hired illegals to do the roofing on my apartment complex. He was rich. The people who own contracting jobs as painters, construction or landscaping make damn good money. Many live in nice two story houses.

The dirty little secret here in California is that if you want to get rich, go into contracting and hire all illegals. That’s the way to get rich. I had friends who businesses like painting and they could not compete with the guys who hired illegals. My friend paid his painters $25/hour. The competition was all hiring illegals at $7/hour. This whole scam is just a way for White men to get rich hiring low wage labor and getting rid of all the high paid Whites. That’s all it is.

Most jobs do not require a whole lot of brains or skill and sure they could be replaced by some wetback.

I worked in a White town where Whites were janitors, trash collectors, landscapers, construction workers, painters, drywallers, roofers, dishwashers, waiters, maids, on and on. There is no job that was too lousy for a White person.

Now when the illegals come in somehow they tend to fill up all of those jobs that were formerly filled by White Americans. Whether this is because they work under the table or are more docile I have no idea. I know they do not work any harder than Whites.

It doesn’t really matter if a Mexican took your job. That’s one less job for a White person. A lot of White people work at low-paying, low-skilled jobs but that is just fine. Mexicans come in and wipe out all of those jobs and now all those Whites are out of work. Mexicans do way more than work in the fields. They have taken over a lot of fields, especially construction.

Construction used to be all White and all union and you made very good money in a union. The illegals came in and all of the unions were wiped out and all of the Whites were replaced by illegals. I know drywallers who would be making $45/hour in constant dollars today. Now that same job is done by an illegal for $10/hour with no benefits, no union and you can abuse him as much as you like.

There is a lot of unemployment around here. Just think if we got rid of all these illegal alien scums in my town. Just think how many jobs that would open up for Americans of all colors – Whites, Hispanic Americans, Asians, Blacks. All of those real Americans could move in and take all of those jobs that the illegals had. Think how many jobs would open up! Wouldn’t it be great?
