Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum -- Again

It is imperative we begin emulating the left in its tactics.

A couple of years ago, I suggested a completely different strategy: I wanted to pursue a kinder path. I wanted an end to the speech wars and social media mobs and boycotts and all the rest of it.

But that path has been tried, and it has failed. Passive resistance -- moral resistance -- can only work when dealing with opponents with morality and honor, or who, at least, see you as more than subhuman.

Gandhi's tactics would not have worked had India been colonized by, say, China.

Many on the right, or even liberals who lean to the left but who still hold to classic liberal traditions, have called, endlessly, for an end to the Speech Wars.

That failed.

We've been trying this for years. Two or three years in my own case.

Has this sweet music of reason had any positive effect of soothing the passions of the beast?

Well, watch this video of the Empowered Mob demanding more firings at Evergreen college last week, and tell me the path of merely condemning mob lunacy is having any effect at all.

The Empowered, Privileged Mob demanded -- demanded! -- that white people absent themselves from their space, and this is what happened to those who said, "No, that's racist, and teaching class is my job."

Embarrassed by their own repulsive behavior, the Privileged Mob is now demanding -- demanding! again, like emotionally unstable toddlers -- that this video be taken down and that consequences be visited on whoever "stole" it.

This is not working.

People calling for an end to the Speech Wars have a good end in mind -- most people would just love it if not every single minor consumer transaction were not politicized, if not every single public faux pas were not a call to the Social Justice Wolves to come and feed -- but the current strategy, championed by most who want to get to this end-point, is not working.

The dispute I have with them now is not over their preferred end-state -- I deeply desire the end-state they seek, where people actually have freedom to think and speak as they want, and not every fucking mundane movie-ticket purchase is either a Cause or a Crisis -- but the current policy of "unilateral disarmament, and hope that the Monster Babies will learn from our example" is a total, dismal, catastrophic failure.

In order to learn at all, it is required that someone first believe that he has anything to learn at all, and we know that progressives do not see conservatives as people from whom anything can be learned -- they see us as subhumans to be re-educated and reconstructed into civilized savages who at least won't embarrass them as we tend their gardens.

Leftist students cannot be taught anything -- they now routinely scream at professors (you know, the people they're allegedly paying to learn from) that they must SHUT UP AND LISTEN. They come to the university already knowing all there is to know, and in fact are only present to teach their professors; one wonders, then, why it isn't the students being paid, and the professors paying tuition to learn their collective, shouty, expletive-filled wisdom.

(By the way, don't be fooled: None of these people will pay the massive debts they're acquiring while passing time at university; you will.)

The most we are "winning" is not losing as much: We chalk it up as a "win" that USAA has been counter-pressured to resume buying ads on Hannity, overlooking the fact that nine other companies were protested by the left into boycotting him, and remain in full boycott.

We overlook the fact that corporations routinely -- some might say "eagerly" -- join Social Justice War-Bands to curry favor with them and to improve their "brand image" in the eyes of the progressives, which make up about 20% of the country, but seem to be the only demographic that matters.

Rather like the Brahmin class of India. But more on that later.

We don't seem to notice that we are always defending, and even the best possible outcome for our attempts at defense only means that we have avoided harm -- for a month.

Then they start up again, demanding this corporation boycott this public commentator, demanding that this writer have his advanced canceled, demanding that this Random Citizen of No Particular Public Interest be fired for the crime of giving spoiled, stupid Monster Babies something to #Occupy their shriveled brains for a morning.

But they never stop. And why would they?

Just as the best possible outcome for us is that we avoid the harm they intended for us for one short month, the worst possible outcome for them is they will not get This Twitter Cycle's Designated Scalp -- for now.

But there'll be another scalp ripe for the tearing in a few days.

In short, the worst penalty they suffer is not being able to make anyone else suffer-- for a short period.

They are never made to suffer themselves.

Thus, they have absolutely no incentive whatsoever to ever stop.

If you're a sadist, and an insecure individual with little credit to his name, you can build yourself up into a Social Justice War-Fighter by constantly attacking others and making them miserable and afraid.

The worst outcome is that you don't get your scalp -- this time.

But you have in fact caused your enemies to fear you, and to always worry what might upset you next.

Which is a major psyops victory in itself -- the best, and easiest, form of censorship is self-censorship, and if you've put your enemies into terror of being the next to face the mob, they will self-censor, and they will become, against their will at first, but then according to their habit as time goes on, your personal censorship enforcers, patrolling their own minds for thoughts the mob has deemed impermissible.

The second-best outcome in war is to take an enemy out. But the very best outcome is to Shanghai an enemy to be one of your own marines.

The worst outcome for them is basically... the best outcome for them.

Do they ever actually suffer for their own choices? Do they ever experience a setback larger than just not getting their way, this week?

No.

And it's time for that to change.

If a sadistic, insecure, submediocre individual enjoys tormenting those he deems enemies, like a child who enjoys pulling the wings off flies, he will not stop -- ever -- unless he is made to feel the same pain himself.

If he subscribes to a racist cult that says all outside the cult are Fair Game for abuse, and abusing them is actually a sacrament -- how can he be made to stop?

If you're in a fight with someone, and you never do anything but parry blows and dodge, you can at least hope for him to tire himself out.

But he'll have regained his endurance by the next morning. And, as he actually enjoys just throwing blows at you, and you've done nothing to convince him this is a counterproductive idea -- he will be back.

If you never actually hit him right the fuck back -- when is he ever going to learn that fighting is not a good idea?

Many of us -- and I blame myself here -- have been pushing an idea of unilateral disarmament in this arena, hoping they would just learn how awful and venomous they are.

But they don't. I think they take a rather different lesson from our passive resistance than the one they intended.

We intended that by passively resisting, they would see us as showing moral courage and would learn from us that ceaseless violence and bullying and collectivized political campaigns run against everyday citizens pursuing no public office are wrong.

But they didn't learn that.

What our self-restraint has taught them is quite the opposite--when we refuse to fight back, they take that as signalling that deep down, we know they're right and that we are the monsters, and thus, our refusal to engage them in the fight they've started does not prove our moral rightness, but instead our moral corruption.

We think: We are showing them a better way by acting in a manner that is morally superior.

They infer: They are submitting to us as if they are our inferiors, therefore they must know that they are in fact our inferiors.

We cannot keep deluding ourselves into pursuing a course of action which, while appearing morally righteous and principled on paper, is in fact bringing more suffering upon ourselves and only encouraging the behavior we thought our peaceable approach was actually discouraging.

This path is not stopping the Social Justice Warrior Cult of Racist Hatred -- it's fueling it.

We shall have One Law in this country, or none at all.

If these tactics are permissible -- and effective, as they certainly appear to be -- then they are permissible for all, not just a special privileged group of Empowered Snowflake Warriors.

If it's permissible to pressure corporations into firing people and cancelling appearances for leftist groups, then surely it is permissible for the right to do likewise.

Only when they start seeing themselves blacklisted for employment will these morally senseless people learn that blacklisting is bad. They do not have moral sense, but I trust most of them are not so stupid that they don't possess a basic practical regard for their own self-interest.

If you want the Culture of Ceaseless Social War to stop -- which i dearly do -- then I propose it is necessary to engage in it ourselves, until they sue for (at long last!) peace.

We must insist on equality before the law -- and before the media, as well.

The progressives are in the final stages of a decades-long campaign to make us a Lower Caste, with fewer rights and privileges than the Ruling Caste (and the sad courtiers to the Ruling Caste, who hilariously believe themselves to be members of that caste).

When we demand that the "rules," such as they may be, must be enforced equally as to all, this is no minor cavil: If a social order exists in which some groups labor under additional legal and social burdens than others, then that social order is, by definition, a caste system.

If we accept this caste system, and we accept that we belong to a lower caste by submitting ourselves to the special burdens reserved for those of our station, we confirm our place in the lower caste and we also confirm the special privileges of the higher caste.

It is social codes like these that make a caste. In England, back when it was more class-stratified (and who knows, maybe today), a "gentleman" could refer to a commoner just by his last name, or his first name. Tom. Upton. Whatever.

But the commoner was expected to only refer to the gentleman as "sir" (or "ma'am,") or, if named, with the title of dignity "Mister" (or "Miss").

Anyone who followed that convention was confirming his own place in the hierarchy.

Another man can only tell you you belong to an inferior caste.

But when you begin acting like you're part of an inferior caste -- following his rules and his preferences, substituting them for your own -- then you actually are now part of that inferior caste.

The man posing as a lord only asserts you are a serf. When you begin bowing to him, you confirm his claim.

The same rules must apply to all, the same laws. The same dignities.

For everyone.

Or else you have a hardening caste system.

What do I want? I want a world in which angry mobs do not form up and begin screaming at people or pressuring companies to fire people just to fill their empty, pathetic lives with something shabby and mean they can pretend is grand and noble.

But we're not in that world. We're not in that world of Social Peace.

And refusing to acknowledge that we are in a state of Social War does not bring Social Peace any closer; it just encourages the Monster Babies to wage even further war, making more demands, demanding more submissions, concessions, and ritualized confessions.

If you want peace, prepare for war.

You may not be interested in Social War, but the Social Warriors are deeply, deeply interested you, and bringing you to heel, and making you confess that you are indeed a creature with fewer rights and privileges than they possess.

No one's ever going to put them in a position of authority over others -- which is why they desperately need you to accept they have authority over you.

I didn't particularly want Kathy Griffin fired -- but it was necessary.

I actually envy her lack of inhibition and total feeling of freedom. She felt she could do whatever she wanted, so long as it broke no laws.

I'd like to feel that way. But I can't.

I can't feel that way, because I know the progressive mob is always scalp-hunting, and that I am not free to say or think as I might like.

They rule part of my brain -- my very fear of them limits my thoughts, creates inhibitions and limitations in me which I did not choose for myself, but were forced upon me from without.

I have become, partly, a recruit in the Social Justice Warrior army. Their dicta, their demands, their fury is always alive inside of me.

I know to fear them. And so I must self-censor.

My fear of their power makes part of my own brain their appointed warden for the rest of my head.

So a big part of my anger is in seeing Kathy Griffin act as a totally free spirit and free agent, able to do what she likes just because she thinks it's funny, or "edgy," or whatever.

It makes me angry to see her living a life where she can just do something without fearing the consequences -- but I can't.

And neither can you.

My hatred of Kathy Griffin isn't a hatred of her -- it's a hatred of the vicious caste-based system which says she has more rights than Sean Hannity, and more rights than you, and more rights than me.

If keeping some of my diminished amount of freedom means that I have to thuggishly begin taking it from others -- so be it.

I didn't make the rules.

I'm just trying to survive them.

I don't want her to have less freedom -- but the only way to make sure I keep the limited, constantly-eroded freedom I currently have is to insist that I am not a serf, and I will not be held to different laws than the Lords.

As I cannot accept that -- and as I will not accept that -- I must insist she pay the same cost I would be expected to pay if I were to do what she did.

Otherwise, I'm saying Sir/Ma'am to the Ruling Caste, and confirming that I accept my lower position.

Hillary Clinton called half of the country "The Deplorables."

It's really not so different from the lowest caste in India -- the "Untouchables," is it?

They're not even attempting to turn us into serfs covertly any longer -- it's now just pretty much out in the open.

No more.

No more.

I have no interest in emulating the left's tactics. Frankly, I don't care how the left tries to do what they do. All I want is the left to be mercilessly dealt with and to have their criminals jailed.

The left deserves no quarter. They are evil shitweasels from their very cores.

I have no desire to hold the left to their own stupid laws and rules - which are laws and rules that have no business existing in any way. I want to hold them to normal laws - which they break all the time. And, to reiterate - no mercy. They don't deserve it.

29 I've been saying for a while that we're in a war. It's not a shooting war, not yet, but if we don't want shooting, we need to be shouting.

We need to be rioting.

We need Conservatives to go to jail for vandalism, violence and disruption.

That's not fun. That's not easy.

But if you want to avoid a shooting war, be ready to break bones, cause cuts and, worst of all, hurt people's feelings.

I don't have a solution, but I'm intrigued in organization that leads to concerted effort on one, single front. From that battle, victory and momentum for the next rollback. For ex, the month, our front is boycotts, or pressuring a single University. Cut from the hers, kill it, chalk up a victory for once.

44 Another idea (ace, post idea).

Out in the states, with all the GOP politicians in office, we should have a "deep bench". We should use that bench against the GOP politicians we send to Washington. If you don't fight 100% from day one, there are 5 other amazing candidates in your state's legislature that wouldn't mind a crack at the big table.

Primary your elected officials hard!!!! Much less risky with the state-level dominance the GOP has now.

45 Well, I'd like to say "rah! rah! rah!", but I don't know where to begin this encounter.

Outnumbered, you usually are. Just taking a principled stand and saying "no!" to all this nonsense is not nearly enough.

Last winter, I had a dinner time discussion with a 17 year old Know - It -All, who insisted that TRUMP WAS JUST LIKE HITLER! because this guy Robert Spencer was for Trump (out of a nation of 300 million). I gently asked him, if he had ever read "Mein Kampf" and knew what Hitler was really all about, and was actually going to make some small humor about "Mein Kampf" being just like "The Art of the Deal", but he was not to be trifled with.
Too bad he wasn't "age of majority" and 18, because then I could have physically smacked him good , which is what the rude little bastard deserved.

Yes, a generation of monsters is coming. I don't know about any organized resistance from me, but some of them are going to get smacked down hard some day.

Soon.

48 Personally, I have no problem with what Kathy Griffin did. I really don't care what she thinks about anything but I see nothing wrong with anyone expressing that they hate the President or would be happy to see him in that condition.

The problem is not what griffin did, it's that no one was allowed to do anything even remotely like that while Barky was occupooping the Oval Office - and he was a friggin retarded criminal who wasn't even eligible to be in that position.

But if Kathy Griffin likes running around with a fake decapitated head of Trump, I really could not care less.

I am similarly torn. The thing I have loved most about Trump is that he has gotten these ass clowns to take their rubber noses off willingly. They are showing who they are in all their retarded glory- and is what we have suspected they are for the last 30 years.

On the one hand, she should be fired- not for this but because she a deeply unfunny woman whose only qualification is that she is a flaming prog and is 'edgy.'

On the other, by firing her, we are forcing them to consider going underground again. Right now they are vomiting their reality all over us 24/7. It is not an attractive look.

Honestly though, I think a lot of this is not just because of Trump, but that they thought they had achieved final victory with Obama. They are reacting now like the silent majority should have reacted in the 60s- try to stamp out the opposition.

Not even the people making the accusation could have actually believed it.

Now we have Kathy Griffin holding up a blood-dripping severed head made to represent Donald Trump, and after some halfhearted tsk-tsking by the lefty media, she looses a gig that was only for one night a year anyway.

But we can no longer cede ground just because we know deep down that this is a nasty game we're being forced to play - it's still better than forfeiting.

102 I fear that the leftist radical culture is pushing us to a place where the beatdowns start. The majority in this nation is very patient and tolerant, very willing to let things slide and turn the other cheek. We fear what we can do. We do not want to turn society into what these guys seem to be longing for.

They are children who never grew up, and if they don't ever get better by time and the usual pressures of maturation, when will they? Most folks get along fine. Its just the small loud, influential number that will not and cannot. I really don't think they comprehend math, or if they do, they reject it for their preferred reality, the world they substitute in their minds as better.

I am searching my mind and history and cannot come up with an equivalent situation or series of events. Never before can I think of a time when a small, stupid, loud, and childish segment got so obnoxious, even violent as if they are in charge.

Posted by: Tom Servo


There was a lot more than just passive resistance to the Chinese when they entered Tibet.
But China is a massive land power, and Tibet is a small landlocked country. We could not pull our Navy up to the door and do something. The CIA actually ran covert Ops for years with willing Tibetans, but now, it really is TOO LATE. The Chinese have completed a railroad line into Tibet, and it's a Theme Park visit for the casual Buddhist Chinese. I've know several Chinese who blithely talked about how COOL it would be to visit Tibet, now. And the Chinese will out breed the Tibetans, and in 25 years, Tibet WILL be Chinese. And then, so what?

Analogous, the "conservatives" (whatever that is these days) are going to be cornered by the upcoming Progressive Angry Babies, and it will get ugly down right soon.

I don't really know our numbers. I know some Jacksonian Democrats that voted for Trump, because frankly, 8 years of Obama and then Hillary turned their stomachs, and Trump wasn't the typical nauseating Republican, to them.

133 One small moment in the campaign that I think resonated much larger was when Trump was having those rallies and people were always starting trouble.

I remember an older biker dude punching some black agitator and dropping him like a sack of potatoes.

I could tell that REALLY messed with the Left's psyche, we were supposed to be punching bags, especially white people in the face of angry black people. We were just supposed to take our beat down.

134 "100
We need to have our own long march through the institutions



Journalism, movies, TV, music, foundations, academia, and corporations"

Too late, it's not going to work for us. Too much institutional resistance, which the left never had to face.

We are going to have to take actions which lead to the destruction of all of those institutions, bit by bit. And then hope that completely new institutions rise to take their place.

Our task is one of destruction, that's the part of the war we've come to. On the plus side, almost every institution you named is already either dead or dying. Take the music industry, for example - it is just tottering along as a dying husk of what it used to be. It has no more truly creative people left in it, just dancers and prancers and no talent ho's. Same could be said for "journalism", as far as that goes.

"Alinksy, you magnificent bastard! I read your book!"
Rule 4: Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.
This has proven the hardest rule to turn tables on the Left, because they're happy to wallow in hypocrisy.

Another from back in October:
Alinksy, you magnificent bastard! I read your book!"
D. Trump

Rule 5: Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It's hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

Rule 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy. "If your people aren't having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic."

How can MSM not cover a story involving Anthony Weiner? He's comedy gold.

Hillary will be made to look ridiculous, and a person in her position can't look ridiculous.

Just make the left live up to normal rules - which they can't do ... because they're lowlife, douchebag, nihilistic leftist pieces of shit. Give no credence or respectability to any of their rules.

The only possible option for us to change the rules is to make the enemy want to do so, the only weapon at our disposal for that purpose is to insist the rules apply to everyone, including the Progs.

Trying to be morally superior to Holy Warriors for Social Justice, who live to #VirtueSignal their own superiority, was obviously doomed to failure; i.e. it was totally Conservative.

189 Amen amen and amen.

I will add this. People are sneering at whataboutism, you know, when the Right says well what about when the Left does it. People sneer and say it's childish but it's not.

You know what it is? It's an attempt to determine what the rules are. Because you cannot say that because you are a serf is a rule. So saying what about X is a way of pushing for an answer as to what the rules may be exactly.

I want to know what the rules are so that I can either play by those rules or I can go full Joker on them.

Someone had a point recently that the election of Trump and Brexit are a primal scream by those outside the Credentialed Class that they will NOT be serfs. Because that is what the current system is attempting to reassert, flat out serfdom.

No. No, I am not a serf. I also find it ludicrous that something which someone achieves at the age of 17 or 18, namely getting into an Ivy, determines that they are of Superior Worth.

That's insane and I think needs to be framed in that manner. Oh, you graduated from Haaaaahhhvvaaadd? I'm so sorry that the greatest accomplishment of your life happened when you were in high school, that's so sad, I feel sorry for you. Hmm, you didn't graduate until you are 23 or 24 or whatever? Bless your heart, everyone knows that no one flunks out of an Ivy. *concerned head tilt* Aren't you worried that you have to live another 50 or 60 years without doing anything more worthwhile with your life? Bless your heart.

I don't want this world. My horror at the politicization of All The Things is well known. But here we are.

I've had to watch people I otherwise like say horrible, horrible things about a group that includes me and you know what I think? I don't blame you. After the last 20 odd years of vituperation and, especially, after Memories Pizza, I would hate me too. It's human nature. It *hurts* but it's comprehensible. People pushed will push back. They will. That I am caught in the middle getting shot by all sides is just what it is. (Must. Not. Make. Obvious. Joke. Must. Resist.)

If I can comprehend this about human nature, it must be damn obvious indeed.

One of the frustrating things is the idea that we are supposed to boycott people that didn't do anything in order to indirectly reach someone behind someone who is off to the side of someone who is indirectly connected to someone who is ...... etc.


So, as I see it, much like dickhead-bike-lock-prof, it is time to start ID'ing the little twerps in these videos by name and letting any prospective employers both public and private that we will not take kindly to choosing to employ these little monsters.


Similarly, we should ID their faculty enablers and start going to legislators and others who fund their universities as necessary to push back against the actual villains. Don't cut funding to universities in general -- just eliminate troublesome departments within the university by order of those with the purse strings.

University presidents/staff obviously do not have the ability to do it on their own. It is time to do it for them, and it is time to punish specific bullies directly.

196 One step, seriously, that would end a lot of the nonsense: Get the Feds completely out of the Student Loan Business, which Obama let the Feds take over. Make it all private.

Next Step: Allow any student without an income to default on any student loan balance by declaring bankruptcy within 1 year of graduation.

Yes, that would destroy any company making these loans. Yes, that would lead to a catastrophic drop in college admissions. Yes, that would lead to a shutdown of those institutions which could not show that they were providing value for the money. Yes, it would create a large deal of unemployment for academics and their hangers-on.

I've had to watch people I otherwise like say horrible, horrible things about a group that includes me and you know what I think? I don't blame you. After the last 20 odd years of vituperation and, especially, after Memories Pizza, I would hate me too. It's human nature. It *hurts* but it's comprehensible. People pushed will push back. They will. That I am caught in the middle getting shot by all sides is just what it is. (Must. Not. Make. Obvious. Joke. Must. Resist.)

If I can comprehend this about human nature, it must be damn obvious indeed.

210 Only when they start seeing themselves blacklisted for employment will these morally senseless people learn that blacklisting is bad. They do not have moral sense, but I trust most of them are not so stupid that they don't possess a basic practical regard for their own self-interest.
---
Love you, Ace. But that is to not learn from history. Elia Kazan testified that before there was a HUAC-inspired blacklist, there was a Communist blacklist. Communist handlers encouraged Hollywood Commies to "talk down" the talent of any of their patriotic colleagues. I mean diliberately talk down other actors, directors, producers and writers for the sin of not having the right politics. And patriotic performers got fewer roles and became known as "hacks". And Kazan admits he participated in this game.

But we know from history that when they got blacklisted the only thing they learned from it was how to squeal injustice that THEY got blacklisted. (And a disdain for Kazan for "squealing"--such that his work would not be recognized by the academy until the 1990s!)

A lack of self-reflection seems to go hand-in-hand with progressivism. They have the front armor of a M1 Abrams and observation just glances off the front armor.

These are unreflective, self-possessed assholes. And attract assholes who have an innate sense of unreflectiveness and self-possession but want to hit the next level.

So naturally the Left thought the election would bring them heads on spikes. That's what their candidate-dictator promised them. And she was a sure thing to win!

By now, guns were supposed to be outlawed and confiscated. By now, all coal was to be outlawed. By now, churches were to be billed for back-taxes. By now, there was supposed 500K more islamic "refugee children" imported into our cities and towns. By now, there was supposed to be more leftist justices on the Court. By now, there was supposed a big tax hike. By now, there was supposed to be free tuition for everyone...except the white privileged. By now, there was supposed to be Amnesty. By now, there was supposed no more election oversight at all ensuring a Democrats stay in the White House and control Congress forever.

We are too dignified and nonconfrontational and willing to live and let live, they ain't.

222 I just watched a 1950 film noire called "Try and Get Me!" which ultimately was a condemnation of "mob justice" -- it tells the (true) story of a guy accused of murder in San Jose was was dragged from the jailhouse and lynched because the mob thought he was gonna to walk free.

The screenwriter was a communist Hollywood-lefty type who two years later was blacklisted, because he was always interjecting politics into his scripts.

I tried figure out what was the leftist message of the movie: online reviews revealed that in the screenwriters worldview, "mobs" are always right-wing mobs, so by condemning mob behavior, he was condemning conservatism.

Fast forward 67 years: My oh my how things have changed. Now mobs are always LEFT-wing mobs.

Once again proving that "Conservatism is the new counter-culture."

You would see the jurisdiction of courts being seriously curtailed.

Gandhi wrote a Dear Friend letter to Hitler--kind of a Rodney King "Why Can't We All Get Along" deal. A: Maybe because "some" of us are bent on world domination and have a nasty Zyklon-B habit.

He also recommended that Jews offer themselves like sheep for the slaughter until the Nazis saw the error of their ways. But Gandhi himself only took on the Brits, who could be shamed.

276 Just now joining in.
Been thinking this for some time.

I was in my first protest in the 70's in college and learned then that those who organize these events are seldom local. The Students for a Dem Society would swoop in (all paid for by the way) and use local chapters of volunteers to do the heavy lifting of the protest. The outsiders would just watch and guide. And leave.
And if there was pushback---they left early.
Its not the guy with the megaphone, its the guy who talks to the guy with the megaphone every so often you go after.

Not so much.

Goldman bought the bonds in the secondary market, meaning that the government had already received the money from someone else and Goldman is simply taking a risk on the obligation for repayment.

297 Long, long ago, when it was the commies we had to worry about, I verbalized the viewpoint...

"Speak to them in a language they understand."

...this was simply an update to the strategy used in WWII (and any major war before that).

Then the muzzies started acting up; the counter-violence started out as a mixed message: Islam is not the enemy / fuck with us and you die.

IMO, the former is a fatal conceit (based on the happy shiny premise that 'they love life too'), while the latter is a proper survivalistic mind-set.

Now the Left / Proggie / Globalist (statist) crowd has decided to go 'all in' since PDT up-ended the grand chessboard in 2016. My viewpoint has never changed... 'speak to them in a language they understand'.

PP says, They aren't human until they are born.

We say, If they aren't human, what are they?

PP: Blob of cells. Like a tumor.

There is no discussion here, just talking past one another without understanding, and they continue killing babies without fear of that being taken away from them. The only thing they fear is losing those lovely federal dollars that allow them to expand into areas with lots of teenagers and poor blacks and hispanics.

342 I think this goes a little deeper than the political. In all honesty I think that the left could have taken a Hillary loss to another Republican, but not to Donald Trump. The loss to Donald, I think, was not only a political slap in the face it was a cultural slap in the face. The left has frequently said it won the culture wars. It said this when Obama won a second term. See if Ted Cruz had won, they could have amused themselves mocking the "Backwards Christian Right". Donald doesn't pretend to be all that religious and God know he is no moral Puritan. What is the left supposed to do with this? They not only lost the election but they lost to someone who although rich is NOT part of the club. He is not cultured, he is crass, he speaks his mind, and he is often showing a disgusting level of patriotism that is not kosher in elite circles. Donald Trump is not just a political loss it is a cultural loss that has them going nuts. It has been interesting seeing masks come off finding just how pervasive this is in both parties.

Goldman paid 31 cents on the dollar for the bonds, which mature in October 2022, Borges' letter said. At that price, the bonds would yield more than 40 percent compared with their stated coupon of 6 percent.

Goldman acquired the bonds from Dinosaur Financial Group, two sources familiar with deal told Reuters."

353 So I'm a bit torn here. Why do we fight the left? Why should people step up here? More to the point, why shouldn't people be serfs? All our "betters" tell us so.

That's the foremost issue here: the failure of the right to stand for something. There's no cause; no theses nailed to a door.

Yes, we shouldn't be serfs... but why? Why is free speech better than hate speech? Why shouldn't government take care of the poor and provide healthcare?

We've had the Paul Ryans and the McCains plus the active malfeasance of the media, and the right has simply lost its voice. We don't stand for something important anymore; we just want our goodies--low taxes, government to not force us to cater to militant gays. Well, why shouldn't' the government protect gays from "bigoted Christian haters?"

The answers I think most if not all of us know, but we don't have a coherent platform. Freedom! Yes, but why is that important, when Mother Hillary promises to take care of all my wants? Why should I be free, when I can be a serf? We've found out that freedom is not important to Islamic countries, for the most part-- if they get freedom they promptly enslave themselves far worse to the Imams.
Before we go to war with the left, we have to have a message that is clear and compelling: Why are we fighting? To defend our wives, our children, our liberties, and our worship. To defend the idea that every man or woman is equal. Something pithy and easy to comprehend.

This war will not be won without converts. It's that simple. And what are we preaching is the better alternative to a life of easy serfdom?

I frankly thought it would have started by now, but apparently there was more resilience in American society than I thought.

Your comment made me think of some article recently written trying to understand Never Trumpers (it was posted at Legal Insurrection). I have read a lot of Never Trump articles, opinions, and comments across various blogs and one aspect continued to come to the forefront every time. The complaints of these folks are that Trump does not "conduct himself appropriately" for the office of the President and that he is not a "true" conservative. My immediate reaction upon reading that is "What happened to "Hold your nose because this is the best we can get" or "This is as conservative as the culture will allow"? I agree with Ace that they college level cry babies need to be put in check, but we also need to realize that there are other more subtle crybabies who are in positions of power that also need to be put in check. Trump has truly shown where the allegiance of some Republicans lie and it isn't with small government or the "little people".

Not really surprising though. They have been whipping themselves up and trying to outdo one another for 8 months now.

They keep using more and more dire rhetoric, and some have even come out and said they wish someone would take him out. Hell, we have had people asking about assassins and KO asking for foreign intelligence services to "take out" the president.

No, frankly, it isn't. Go read contemporaneous accounts of the political and social climate in this country in 1857 - 1860 and you will be astounded and shocked at how similar the emotions and actions were to today. States were using their judicial courts to harass other states, cities were starting to found their own militias to support their dominant political goals - the US didn't become militarized by the 1861 secession, it was already completely militarized and divided, and waiting like the proverbial powderkeg for any lit match.

Colleges will start going broke, and will be forced to change. May take a few more years. Insty has been on this for years.

The economy has been picking up, and will continue to chug along. Regulatory reform is already a help. Also the self-fulfilling idea that America is where you want to do business. Tax reform will add to this.

OCare will fail. A crisis will force needed reforms. Trump has positioned this so that the blame is on the Ds (and the GOPe if they're not careful).

Progress has been made on Immigration. More to come.

Rs will keep the House in 2018, and pick up at least six seats in the Senate. Trump will actively campaign here.

391 I think we need to define what freedom is: it's not "I can do whatever I want!" Well, it is... but what does that mean? The freedom to do something is also the freedom to NOT do something.

The left offers nothing but coercion and loss of freedom of choice. You must buy this health care. You must bake that cake. You must not say anything we disapprove of. The right offers you the ability to say that Islam sucks. That no, you don't have to bake that cake, or even serve a Christian. Most importantly, the right asks that in exchange for your freedom, you use it to govern yourself. Who is the real man or woman: the self reliant, self mastered person or the slave to a government check?

This, I think, is the core choice we should offer: stand up against slavery. Ace was getting at it with the whole "serf" bit; but the left doesn't want a serf, they want a slave.

People instinctively are seeing this with the transgendered issue: the trannies are taking away the right of women to say no, to be themselves. They are losing their right to be a woman, in favor of someone who claims something completely against reality. That's an issue we can win on if we make it about the rights of the women forced to shower with the guy in a skirt. The left loses, big time.

Make everything a referendum on "aren't you enslaving people"?

No, frankly, it isn't. Go read contemporaneous accounts of the political and social climate in this country in 1857 - 1860 and you will be astounded and shocked at how similar the emotions and actions were to today.

...

not a civil war -- I don't want a war.

But I do want a divorce.

A divorce can be amicable. And when people hate each other, a divorce can at least make them civil to one another, as they're not in each other's shit every day any longer.

A country in which one group decides what political violence is acceptable, according to whether they're In the Group or the Out Group, is no longer a country.

The very nation of a country requires that people agree, nearly universally, that we are all citizens protected by the law.

When a very powerful group of people decides that some citizens aren't really citizens, the most basic element of "country" is now lacking. Now you have mutually hostile tribes which merely pay taxes to the same central authority.

A government does not make a people -- fellow-feeling makes a people.

The Left needs to bleed, profusely, until they either learn a new appreciation for civility, or until the odds are at least even, and both sides are down an eye, as it were.

Then when we objected they lied and slandered us. when we won election they delegitamized is and neutred our reps. In short like most problems we face everything ended up in its cynical logical conclusions and their greed left us no decent avenues for response.

419 Interesting piece, Ace. I read the whole thing, but haven't looked at the comments yet.


Speaking for myself, I am blessed to live in a pleasant little town in Flyover Country. This coming weekend we will go to a Milk Festival, complete with parade. I pretty much speak my mind to everyone I know, and I think they feel free to do so with me. There is no unpleasantness.


Some of this is probably due to the fact that all my family are conservative devout Christians, my husband is a pastor of a conservative Christian church, and also I am cute.


The teenagers and college students that I know are friendly and nice. They run track and work at Farm and Fleet. The men in my Sunday School class like to talk about guns. They YMCA where I work out passes out Bible Verses on little paper curly strips, and has John 3:16 painted on the walls.


I turn off the TV so I don't hear the screechers. It helps.

428 Yes, the media is the key, nuke them and the whole Progressive edifice is vulnerable.

Consider the whole of modern journalism entirely depends on the reputation of a couple of people and institutions. Look at the news and what do you see? Unsourced leaks, deep 'background' reports from unnamed 'insiders' and unsubstantiated rumor passed off as news. This is only possible because a critical mass of readers / viewers accept the premise that we can trust there actually IS a leaker because of the faith in the NYT, WaPo, CNN, etc. talking head or byline. End that and make the default assumption (which is true) that an unnamed source quoted on CNN should get about the same credibility as "anonymous 'FBI' insider on reddit" and we are in an entirely different world.

Kick it up one more notch to assume any story promoted by the usual suspects is false until proven otherwise and we have probably won the #WAR. That should be the goal, the end game kept firmly in mind when considering strategy and tactics, if it advances that end goal it is good.

Digging up dirt on key journalists and ruining a few lives would be an excellent tactic for instance. Planting #FakeNews that is capnip for the Prog media and then burning them would be both hilarious and productive. And wasn't it Alinsky who recommends tactics which are fun for your troops?

429 Evergreen college has always been strange. I'll copy a comment here that I originally posted at Reddit Europe forum.

This has always been a nuthouse college. I'm a logger in Washington
state, cut trees down. Anyway 20 years ago or so I had a job near the
campus, cutting a stand of second growth Douglas Fir. All kinds of
boo-hoo and whining from students, hey I'm just a working stiff, I don't
get to tell the land owner he can't cut his own trees. I got tired of
all the whining so I made a point of getting on the job long before the
crack of dawn and dragging a culvert with my crew cab up and down the
gravel road for hours until daylight. Kept those cry babies awake and
sleepless till we finished the job, a couple weeks or so. They couldn't
win that battle.

430 Few people know, since it hasn't been taught, that in the summer of 1861 there was a conference convened in Washington, with the goal of averting a military conflict. They came up with a plan that looked good on paper, to split the country into 4 separate regions with 4 separate capitols, which would control the laws inside their own spheres but still cooperate to an extent.

But unfortunately, as always with such plans, no one could com to an actual agreement as to who would exactly control what, and everyone involved wanted more than they were getting, and others said it was a stupid idea to begin with, and no one really powerful ever bought into it.

And then South Carolina got sick of waiting for something to happen and opened fire on Ft. Sumter, and we were off to the races. After months of dithering and doing nothing, they were positive that Lincoln was weak and would fold his hand and just let them go.

450 367 "It is imperative we begin emulating the left in its tactics."

Emulating isn't enough. Outstripping them is what is needed.

Posted by: FaCubeItches


Precisely.

Here is a great example of what conservatives SHOULD be doing if they want to destroy the left at their own game:

Read this very carefully -- be prepared, because it is shocking:

-------

Assemble a group of at least 50 (or more) dedicated conservative activists.

Make a bunch of signs ahead of time with the following slogans:

"No more black babies -- defend Planned Parenthood."

"Legal Abortion Is Necessary to Eliminate Minorities."

"Margaret Sanger -- Aryan Hero."

"Eugenics Now, Eugenics Forever: Keep Abortion Legal."

" 'We Must Exterminate Human Waste to Preserve the White Race.' -- Margaret Sanger"

etc. etc. etc.

The point behind the signs is to foreground the true eugenicist/eliminationist goal behind the origins of Planned Parenthood.

Then, 30 of your activists go to the busiest Planned Parenthood center in your state, and set up camp right around the entrance. Make it clear that they are there to DEFEND Planned Parenthood and to SUPPORT abortion rights.

Then, the remaining 20 activists, dressed differently if possible, arrive half an hour later from a different direction. Put all your conservative minorities in this group. Have them be very overtly Catholic, and have half their signs in Spanish. Their signs are anti-abortion, standard fare. They show up to pray away the sin, and to oppose Planned Parenthood and everything it stands for.

Meanwhile, your Media Team (you do have a media team, right?) has contacted all the local, regional and national news stations and outlets. As soon as the first camera shows up, have the two sides start getting into ever-escalating nearly violent conflicts. Screaming, fists flying, veins and tendons bulging. But make sure the pro-choice crowd is scarier and more violent.

-------

Video of this confrontation is sure to make the evening news, and sure to go viral. But the good-guy/bad-guy sides have been reversed from the Leftist narrative.

The problem with this scenario, which is guaranteed to "worK" i.e. change people's minds, is that the activists have to be truly truly "dedicated" in the way that leftists are dedicated: You have to be prepared to be arrested, to have your real name slandered in public, to be endangered.

And the problem is that most conservatives are "normal people" with families, jobs and responsibilities, and are not willing to lay their names and livelihood and safety on the line to make a point.

That's why the Right has so few "professional activists," and therefore why the right often loses the "street theater" battles for political optics.

And that doesn't bother me a bit. At some point, white people need to decide to stop being punching bags. The only racism that is acceptable today is racism against whites, and the cultural Marxists even teach that racism against whites is not racism at all.

Obama only won because of White Guilt. It didn't matter how many black or brown people voted for him, he never could have won without the votes of millions of groveling whites.

To bring it back to Ace's post, white people who suffer from White Guilt are basically saying that they deserve to be subjugated. They are like serfs who bow to their lords.

458 Ace has been here before if I recall it correctly, during the Bush years the left was close to being unhinged as it is today, that's why Britebart made so much sense to so many. The colleges teach the insanity, instigate the insanity and then pretend to surrender to the righteous mob in order to advance on to the next level of culture destruction. The EPA has done the same exact crap for at least a decade, fund the environmental nuts, get the nuts to sue the gov so the gov can surrender and then start the process anew.

There has never been a path to reasonable accommodation, they only want us around to pay for their path to victory over us. I personally adopted the strike first strategy back in '03 or so and have had a far simpler and enjoyable life as a result.

The Left was granted power because somehow the power of being a victim was used to make it so Men would not use their own strength, to do what was right.

The strong were socially coerced into being weak...

I had this brought home to me a few years back. My Girlfriend at the time had a Sister who was a bitch... everyone knew it...

One day, she was in my face about a subject she knew nothing about, and started to make jokes about my Manhood... to the point of invading my personal space and sticking her finger in my face saying ' ew... I'm making you mad aren't I'...

Well... I was training for a historic fencing tourney at the time... parry reflex kicked in and I grabbed her hand, and held it... saying ' if a Man did that, I'd kick his ass... ' and then forcibly removed her hand from my face...

Her boyfriend then got involved and told me to apologize.... I said no... and if you want to be as rude as her, you can take the ass whuppin she deserves.... he backed down...

I lost a girlfriend over it... because her very weakness was supposed to protect her from the rudeness of her own actions...

I won't play that game any longer... I will not be weak, because they want to use their victimhood or weakness against me....

Ace:

Great, and I mean GREAT post. A case in point is the so-called "N word." The fact that I cannot write it here in full is a defeat for free speech. It's not that I condone its usage; far from it. But to not be able to write the clinical sentence "N---er is a horrible racist insult" means that not only have I censored myself, but that people who do use the word have a de facto power over me because they can say it with impunity and I cannot (not that I want to), no matter what ridiculous pseudo-cultural-sociloligcal excuse is given for its use by them.

It is a symbol of domination over me, regardless of whether I recognize it as such. They do.

Nope. CNN gets more money from carriage fees bundled up with the price cable companies pay to take the Warner bundle of channels like TBS, TNT, TCM, etc. Same for the others. The megacorp that is Warner could absorb losses from CNN forever, much like NBC runs NBC News at a loss. And if push comes to shove, like the NYT and WaPo they know a Progressive Stalwart Billionaire will step forward to eat the losses. Could Jeff Bezos buy influence through a normal lobbying firm for twice his annual losses from owning the WaPo? He could not, so it isn't like he is even actually losing anything financially and plus he gains much in public image from owning it.

We must make him pay a price. We must make owning a #FakeNews outlet a liability for everyone who owns one. #WAR

503 It is imperative we begin emulating the left in its tactics.

Ace, what do you mean by this?

Are you suggesting that we get down and dirty if necessary? That's perfectly accessible if that's what it takes.

However, you'd damn well be willing to strike at the heart of the matter and not fail to kill.

Of course, what is the strategy you are planning on emulating?

If you think that the Left's tactics is just to shove things in people's faces on the assumption that the other side is nice, and can be stopped by merely standing up against them, then you do not grok the Left's tactics, and thus are playing into their hands than declaring that turnabout is fair play.

The Left have been playing incrementally for over a century. They aim to destroy and replace with their own fevered dreams. When they push something openly, it is because they have successfully made society conducive towards their arguments, give or take a handful of slightly premature attempts at immanentize the eschaton.

In order to fight the Left, we must return society such that it is conducive towards liberty and virtue by normalizing what makes that possible, while concomitantly deligitimizing the very root and basis for the Left's logic. That is playing by the Left's game.

America is not some invention, but a civic heritage that can not be created ex nihilo in vacuo. Simply copying them does not save America, but results in you opposing them, but in you co-opting them. Rather than save America, you end up substituting your own attempt as societal intelligent design for theirs.

You must remove the poison from the soil and properly fertilize it before you can regrow the American Beauty Rose. Otherwise, you'll just get a prettier weed.

Again, if you think that the Left only win because they suddenly push insanity and then the "establishment" lays down either out of cowardliness or collusion, and that the Left can be opposed by emulating their superficial victory dance without actually doing the hard work of laying down the groundwork, then you understand not what the Left are doing, and are incapable of emulating them.

If you really are going to take them on outright, you have better make sure you achieve total victory, and have the ability to not only win, but to suppress all opposition in a rather authoritarian, if not totalitarian, manner for at least some while, while reconstructing a society where you are comfortable laying down power at the end of it. Playing tit-for-tat will do nothing but destroy the remaining edifices and constraints which, even now, not only slow down by channeling the drive of the Left, but provides a path back.

In other words, if you go Pinochet, you go full Pinochet.

I doubt that very many people here would be willing to actually do what is necessary to win, or even have an understanding of much of an unlikely one-shot that will be.

And don't give me that "Flight 93 Election" bulls**t. If you think that if we just stand up and fight by emulating the superficial actions of the Left, and thereafter be #winning, then you are an optimist.

Quite frankly, what I see is people waking up to discover the end result of decades, if not well over a century, of undermining this country, and thinking that they can rebuild simply by pantomiming the end result, is nothing but wishful thinking by a bunch of Pollyannas.

So go ahead and call me a coward or a sell-out for not not "scratching that itch" of doing something, even when that something will likely give America sepsis to compound the cancer that is the Left.

528 Nope. CNN gets more money from carriage fees bundled up with the price cable companies pay to take the Warner bundle of channels like TBS, TNT, TCM, etc. Same for the others. The megacorp that is Warner could absorb losses from CNN forever, much like NBC runs NBC News at a loss. And if push comes to shove, like the NYT and WaPo they know a Progressive Stalwart Billionaire will step forward to eat the losses. Could Jeff Bezos buy influence through a normal lobbying firm for twice his annual losses from owning the WaPo? He could not, so it isn't like he is even actually losing anything financially and plus he gains much in public image from owning it.

We must make him pay a price. We must make owning a #FakeNews outlet a liability for everyone who owns one. #WAR

Yes, it's time to stand up to the uncivilized behavior and to start holding them accountable. Loudly, relentlessly, vigorously and righteously. If they break the law, prosecute. If they pull a Griffin or Colbert, turn them off and be vocal about the why. Once the money dries up, we will see a change. But, we must be determined to not become them in the process.

555 If this plan is going to work - and I think it can - it's going to require a few things of us. We have to stop being afraid of being called "homophobe" "transphobe" "Islamaphobe" "sexist" "racist" etc.

It's already kinda-sorta happened with "racist". That particular term isn't delivering the kind of results that it used to, so the progs have largely shifted to "white supremicicst" and "Nazi".

We have to be able to shrug these insults off. And that sucks, because I hate racism (real racism, that is). I don't want to be indifferent to it, but we're going to have to be because it will always ALWAYS be used against us, and never against them.

Another thing we're going to have to do is provoke. This is why I was disappointed when the right disavowed Milo. He's one of the best provocateurs we've got. Ann Coulter is good, too. Stop apologizing for her. Stop saying, "I can't stand her, but she's right." Just say, "She's right". The left doesn't abandon their crazies. They make their crazies the leaders. (Not that I think Ann is crazy. You know what I mean.)

But really - and this is where it's going to be hard - we have to do our own long march. We have to get jobs as college professors, and reporters, and such. We have to get our hands on the levers of cultural transmission. We'll have to hide our beliefs until we have power. Then we can "evolve" (Like the JEF with gay marriage.)

Sort term, we can't be afraid to say things like "There are only two genders" or "There's no Global Warming". Yes, it's going to suck. We're going to have arguments. We're going to take hits. We just have to make sure we hit back.

Last thing: We must prepare for violence. If a Berkeley type thing happens in your town, you should be out there being like Based Stick Man. Like Ace says, we're going to have to get arrested and shit.

This is war.

593 still reading, but this line --
" They do not have moral sense, but I trust most of them are not so stupid that they don't possess a basic practical regard for their own self-interest."

made me pause. The progressive ideology is built on an armature of inequality. Eugenicists never worried that *their* children would be eliminated. Communist party members never worried about losing *their* dacha. Affirmative action proponents never worry about *their* spot being earmarked for a less qualified minority. Gun grabbers never worry that *their* safety will be at risk and they left defenseless. Open border types never worry that *their* neighborhood, or school, or park will be overrun by MS13 and their progeny destroying property values, safety, and lives.

What I am saying is that they are not stupid (necessarily,) but they are delusional. While I support fighting back, lets not kid ourselves that the leaders really give a shit if there is more destruction of the laws and conventions of civilization - that is what they want, after all.

By no means. When I met my (now) wife, the fruits were saying that they just wanted to queer off in peace, not interest in marriage or adoption.

Having spent many years in Berkeley, I knew the score, and I told her that that's all they say they want now, but later it will be marriage and adoption.

Sure enough. My predictions being borne out has moved her significantly rightward, until she's nearly as damned as I am, because I also taught her that the measure of a perspective (i.e., a model) is its ability to predict results. And my batting average has been pretty effing good.

And next up: mainstreaming pederasty. Harvey Milk has shown the way.

Of course, Dan White has shown the way too.

For several years I have advocated "Anti-Blue Laws", pass laws intended to ensure Blue refugees from failing States like CA won't choose to settle in your lands. Even if you yourself do not particularly like them, pass them anyway if -they- will hate them so much they will pick a different destination. And yes, your idea is a good one. Forbid 'religious discrimination' for example and anyone who insists on redefining marriage and punishing anyone who refuses to accept the redefinition is a bigot, blammo, banned. Push to have your local schools teach the actual American civic belief system, teach how to recognize propaganda, etc. No way a Snowflake would want their precious crotchfruit exposed to that sort of thing so they go elsewhere. And so on.

We could push for a declaration (State Legislature in a Red State somewhere would be ideal for a start) that Cultural Marxism is a religion, thus the State Uni can't teach it, government money can't pay tuition, etc.

We came pretty damn close to getting a Supreme Court that would have ruled that the Second Amendment didn't apply to private citizens. Whatever else the Trump does or does not do, I'll never forget that he has saved the Supreme Court.

620 I happened to stumble on to a youtube clip of Mark Steyn talking to Hugh Hewitt. This was during the GOP primary with 17 candidates.

Just like any other election year. Democrat primary debates was where Dems distinguish themselves by talking about their favorite topics. And GOP primary debates where Republicans talk about democrat favorite topics. Almost every question was prefaces with a 30 or 60 second speech that tilted the field unfairly.

And even though 16 candidates were smart enough to reject the premises of garbage beltway questions, they did not. They watched Trump's numbers (and Cruz IIRC) go up every time, EVERY TIME, he fought with the press. But since they were more in the business of feathering their congressional campaigns, or selling a book, ect. than actually being president, they stuck to the gentleman rules.

622 Progress has been made on Immigration. More to come.
_____________________

Another area where there is a caste system in this country, and we are on the bottom.

Tax laws, fraud laws, and many other types of laws that citizens must obey (and are punished if they don't), but illegal aliens get a free pass.

A Boston prosecutor cut a deal to give an armed bank robber less than a year in jail, because the robber is an illegal alien and if he received a sentence of more than a year, he might get deported. (After serving his less than one-year sentence, the illegal alien murdered two doctors).

The state's attorney in Maryland last week sent out a memo to local prosecutors in her state, telling them not to even prosecute illegal aliens for crimes, since it may result in their deportation.

This week in Queens, ICE officers who had come to pick up a Guyana illegal alien, currently facing burglary charges, were surrounded by other "residents" and had to call local cops for help defending themselves from the mob. The Guyana man had already been voluntarily deported years earlier, after having been arrested for a violent assault in Florida. He illegally re-entered the U.S. and committed yet another crime. All we hear in the media are sob stories about how Trumps is "breaking up immigrant families" and how he is deporting "good, law-abiding" people. It's bullshit. Most of these people, like this Guyana criminal, are repeat offenders -- and not just of immigration crimes, but of crimes like assault, rape, murder, burglary, etc. Can you imagine how law enforcement would have reacted if a bunch of white citizens had surrounded and menaced them when they were trying to detain a criminal suspect? But when it's illegal aliens doing this to protect other illegal alien criminals, it's totally fine, and "we can understand your frustration" as the ICE official said soothingly to the mob.

Victor Hansen has been writing for years about how citizens in California have to jump through all sorts of regulatory hoops and a mountain of paperwork to get anything done that might impact the environment. Meanwhile, when the locals illegal aliens want to dispose of their beat-up old refrigerator, they just load in onto the back of their beat-up, unregistered old truck, and dump it in a local pond, and nobody says boo.

So sick of this shit. This is how you get Trump. And if this shit does not stop, this is how you're going to get even worse than Trump next time.

Excellent rant Ace. I think this is the longest one yet, ever, at least since 2006.

Your point:
"Many on the right, or even liberals who lean to the left but who still hold to classic liberal traditions, have called, endlessly, for an end to the Speech Wars.
That failed.
We've been trying this for years. Two or three years in my own case.
...
This is not working.
"

is clearly correct, but you provide the solution.

The recent Battle of Berkeley aside (mostly 20-35 y.o.s, and a loss for the Left), most people can't afford to be activists in the model of the Left; it interferes with Being Employed ... and it increases the likelihood of mistakes, own-goals and Career-Ending-Actions (Kathy Griffin ... heh)

Continuous resistance IS necessary, but point-by-point resistance is a waste of time. It takes a lot of time and energy and, more importantly, causes a loss of focus among the audience. The LIVs, marginally- and non-political types, simply can't afford the brain fatigue of paying attention.


But, again, you provide the solution. Kathy Griffin's Trump performance art (titled "Actress Drives Her Career Into a Bridge Support") and The Evergreen Community College Tantrum video highlights it:

Embarrassed by their own repulsive behavior, the Privileged Mob is now demanding -- demanding! again, like emotionally unstable toddlers -- that this video be taken down and that consequences be visited on whoever "stole" it.

The ECC Tantrum looks exactly like Mao's Red Guards in 1967 during the Cultural Revolution ... only this time, they've crossed a line. Forcing the ECC president to kneel in supplication, and attacking this professor; there is no longer a line separating the professor they attacked and their Maoist Womyn's Studies SJW professors, and the Maoist Womyn's Studies SJW professors know it.

Something must be done. Average people, many who are JFK-Hubert-Humphrey-"Scoop"-Jackson (remember him?) Democrats, or who simply vote for the incumbent (or the guy they remember from ads), are "waking up", and this meaning of "woke" cannot be allowed. Besides, Maoists academics want to issue diktats and demand results, not pick cabbages and subsist on bread crusts and cabbage broth.

The Battle of Berkeley (again, mostly 20-35 y.o.s, and a loss for the Left), the subsequent internet tracking and public exposure of the USF(?) bicycle-lock-wielding staffer and a few other "activists", the Internet Popping of the Shia Lebeouf Pimple, suggests rather strongly that a lot of 20-somethings, when shown the Left's actions on video, start acting against the Left ... and never go back

Mass media circulation of videos, KG's performance art, identities of Leftist activists, and other exposure are the solution. Wage the Information/Culture/Whatever War on the internet, in front of hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of viewers.

It's easy and not time-consuming ... and a bit anonymous. If someone doxxes you ... you might have standing, and standing with the ACLU. Make the ACLU live up to ITS rules (and spend its money).

Download each video, "for later"; exchange it with friends; make it reappear (make the Left play whack-a-mole), and with e-mail notification to others, to get views.

Get other to watch ... this is the Internet version of "Hey hey, ho ho, ..." Never let up.

646 "Don't forget the pathway to college is (typically) through public schools. To me, the current situation on college campuses across the land owes much to what is taking place in grade schools in this country."

It owes even more to what we have been immersed in for seventy years ... the assumptions, mores, and social contract of the Blue Social Model, that have even seeped deeply into the thinking of many conservatives.

Sen. Ben Sasse just released a book about "the vanishing American adult" ... well, our Best and Brightest have been diligently working to make them disappear for seventy years ... by turning them into loyal subjects dependent upon the "experts" and "leaders" who are the lords in this high-tech serfdom we more and more appear to live in.

And they are not just wannabe lords ... they are fundamentalist busybodies, the type C. S. Lewis warned us about ... trying to impose their One and Only True Way with a zeal that makes fire-and-brimstone Baptists look like loose-topped libertines out for beads at Mardi Gras.

ABSOLUTELY we need to aggressively challenge every significant assault they make upon our liberty ... and while we're at it, let's work to understand our own conservative worldview enough, that we can get in their faces while standing on a sound foundation of common-sense truth that we can actually articulate.

Returning tit-for-tat is a good start, but let us bring more than just name-calling to the fight ... let's bring a full load of potent ammunition, so we can move from stalemate to victory.

651 I would argue that it is not enough to simply use the same tactics as the Left. If we truly want this nonsense to end, we have to go "Ender's Game" on them.

For those who saw the movie, you know that Ender dealt with his bullies by not just standing up to the bully and beating him, but by beating him up so badly, that the bully never wanted to fight him again.

He fought the fight not with the purpose of just winning the fight of the moment, but to prevent all future fights. Similar to the movie "The Last Samarai" where Tom Cruise explains to Katsumoto regarding the Battle of Thermopylae: "In two days the Greeks made them pay so dearly, the Persians lost all taste for battle. And were defeated soon after."

In addition, not only did Ender utterly destroy his bully in the one-on-one fight, he did it in such a brutal manner and in front of all the bully's friends, as a warning to them that this would happen to them if they tried anything. Similar to the wall of dead bodies the Spartans built in the movie 300 or the pile of Uruk-hai burned and heads on stakes in Lord of the Rings.

This is what conservatives have to do regarding this era of SJW, White-hating, femiNAZI, enviroNAZI despicable culture in which we find ourselves.

We cannot just hit back. We have to hit back and keep hitting them until they are begging for mercy and have lost all taste for battle.

The good news is that bullies usually crumble when confronted. And that's what SJWs and all the rest of these idiots are... bullies. They pick only on people or groups they know are 'soft' targets. You didn't see the LGBTs go after Black churches who were against "gay marriage", they attacked Christians and Mormons. You didn't see LGBTs go after Muslim bakeries or pizza places, they went after Christian businesses. You don't see liberals attack Islam or Muslims for issues regarding LGBTs or misogyny, they only go after Whites and Christians.

So, my hope here is that a big part of stopping this SJW culture is simply conservatives choosing to finally stand up to them.

652 I stopped trying to be either polite or persuasive to Democrat a few months ago. The sudden verbal and actual violence that erupted like pus from a squeezed zit shocked unshockable me. I had been thinking and saying these Democrats are exactly this bad, I hadn't grokked it viscerally.

I've been listening much more than talking this year, and I have a couple of preliminary hypotheses.

First, ridicule is the most potent weapon before violence. The Democrats believe that, and it appears they are right. Successfully ridiculing their ridicule is Yuge. Previous commenters on this thread have already co-opted "covfefe." Brilliant.

Second, elementary schools. PTSAs and school boards are the training wheels of politics.

Many conservatives, if not most, do not know that the teacher colleges were long ago conquered by the Left, and that the nice 3rd grade teacher is pounding politically correct pitons into the brains of your child.

It can be embarrassing and risky to your position in your neighborhood to fight back, but this is where you can start if you have children, or where you can help if you can recruit people in your neighborhood who have children.

You have to pick your first battle based on your neighbors, but there are always plenty of battles, thanks to the Left, that even Democrat parents care about. Is your school district spending 60% of its budget on the 5% of special needs kids and ignoring smart kids (many are, to the neglect of programs high-functioning parents want)? Bathroom wars can be a good wedge issue in many places. Is your school board fighting charter schools?

If you get involved, you'll find pain points and leadership opportunities.

Finally, where is our GoFundMe? We can't compete with the Democrats when it comes to political organizing because we abhor their demogogic rabble-organizing methods. But we do have one advantage: entrepreneurial spirit and understanding the division of labor.

We need to activate and support entrepreneurs who will "community organize" on our behalf while we do our jobs. I'm thinking about scholarships and stipends based on fighting the Left at universities, with big resources backing our young warriors on campus.

If we crowdfund, we can outspend Soros. The awesome thing about entrepreneurship is that new ideas flourish and multiply. We must be willing to pay our people who are good at this stuff to make a very good living doing the things we think about but don't have time to do.

Posted by: Me me hey, it's me! at June 01, 2017 12:57 AM (ZhwLl)

654 One line of attack would be to start collecting the full names of SJWs, such as those in that Evergreen video. Start a website listing all these people, with their full names, school name, courses of study/degree sought, graduation year, and a synopsis of what they did, SJW-wise (i.e., "Led a takeover of the Dean's office; called him a %^ and a ($@%^.") Include links to any videos.

Perhaps reach out to the local college Republicans to gather such info. They're on-site, and might be able to pull the info together, based on school news sources, etc.

Also, anyone else involved in such activities as Gamergate, as well as Antifa and OWS types.

The goal is to provide job hirers with a tool that identifies potential troublemakers. HR personnel are now searching websites and social media for more info on those seeking jobs with their organization. So, give them a clear-cut tool that lists these idiots. Make their background searches easier.

One of the consequences of being such a jerk ought to be the knowledge that they are on, or may go on, a blacklist. Only, don't explicitly label it a blacklist (might be legal issues.) Simply identify it as a collection of known activists, SJWs, and Antifa types culled from open sources.

Anyway, just one possible line of attack.

655 About that idea of the PTA being important, yup and so is the school board. Yes teachers are now all taught Cultural Marxism but some believe it more than others. Make sure your school is hiring the ones who didn't buy it as hard and letting the diehard Comrades be some other school system's curse.

One way would be to agitate for explicitly American ideas to be taught. Actual critical thinking and debate (not Critical Theory) and most important a requirement for the modern age, a requirement they be taught an unit on propaganda; now to recognize it (make em watch a MSM newscast and break it down, for example) and how to use it. Once you make someone a propagandist in their own right they are probably immune to it. Force the school to actually make the kids read the U.S. Constitution and then debate whether it actually says anything about various hot button issues. Teach them about the actual history of Socialism / Communism and the body count. Teach what Capitalism actually is, not the strawman parody the Left fights.

The great side benefit is, as I said, no hard left teacher would be caught dead in such a "reactionary" school system or a town that would allow such a thing to exist. Win - Win.

658 "It is imperative we begin emulating the left in its tactics."

Well... you aren't wrong. You're a little late. But it's true.

A sojourn as an agnostic left-libertarian left me with an intimate knowledge of their tactics. And they're effective. Super easy, by design.

You just have to believe in your cause and be determined to *win*.

Which is why a Crusader-style Christian revival is most likely necessary, and should be rooted for even by those that would never participate.

659 Gandhis tactics didnt work against the British empire either. Heck he actively recruited Indians to fight FOR the British in both the world wars. Indeed the British were pleased to have Gandhi around as a useful idiot. It was Hitler that bankrupted the empire and Subhash Chandra Bose who planted to seeds of rebellion in the British Indian army so the UK's hold on India was at best tenuous by the end of 1950. Everything else is commentary.

663 Ace,

Would you please do a follow-up post on how this translates into action? Knowing specifically how to combat the SJW's would be hugely helpful. Knowing what actions to take would be great too.

Posted by: TXBrass at June 01, 2017 07:00 AM (gfJC6)

664 I wholeheartedly agree with everyone, with one small caveat. Ace says "Only when they start seeing themselves blacklisted for employment will
these morally senseless people learn that blacklisting is bad." I don't think most of the SJWs are able to learn that lesson. They think their actions are justified and ours are evil. They completely miss the irony. But at this point, I don't care. If it stops them, it's worth it, whether they learn the important lesson or not.

Someone put it perfectly recently: Most Social Justice isn't about justice (or peace). It's about revenge. If more people saw it this way, which I believe to be accurate, they wouldn't be guilted into the fascism that's being forced on us - in the name of "tolerance, diversity and inclusivity."

Yeah, I feel really tolerated and included.

I've been saying this for years.

Just like I was for Trump before you jumped on the bandwagon (and I remember you being viciously anti-trump), and degrading pro-trump people, you used to degrade people who argued for using the left's nasty tactics against them, but as with Trump, you have come around.

Indeed, if I recall correctly, you made a comment during your never-trump phase that implied Trump was like a nazi. I called you out on it and was threatened with a banning.

But, as you slowly came around to my point of view on Trump, you are likewise coming around to my point of view on tactics. Amazing growth on your part.

670 Ace, the anger that you are feeling has been suppressed for years and it is good to finally let it go. We do not need to continue taking hits without offering resistance.

For my part, I try to raise awareness by ridiculing the fascist tactics of the new left and highlighting their hypocrisy on open forums. But I am ready to do more. There are a few bastions of intolerance in my region and I will be looking for opportunities to confront the nihilistas on their home turf.

I signed up for notifications over at safestreetsproject.org and will be showing up with placards and a GoPro.

671 The reason you guys, you "conservatives", haven't been fighting is because you don't have any fight in you.

You've been the manners/tone police for years, content to punch to your right to please your leftist masters.

All it takes to shut any of you up is to point out the implicit pro-white racism of your ideas.

That's a shame though. The real right, as opposed to the National Review "right", needs all the fight we can get.

But, as I said, I don't think there is any fight in the lot of you.

If you want to get some fight in you, you might start by studying the ideas of the actual right: traditionalism, hierarchy, stability. The leftist idea of universal human equality has to be jettisoned. It is the source of the problem.

Who decided to let mentally and morally cretinous people vote anyway? Why should such people have any voice in your future, in your children's future?

But you won't look into this, you're scared.

Posted by: JewishOdysseus at June 01, 2017 10:15 AM (N/T7m)

678 I've always seen the SJWs and the "respectable Left" as no different morally than Ceaucescu's Securitate loyalists --rampaging brainwashed thugs who even need a prison net over them when they're being treated in the hospital. They can never be persuaded, only crushed or terrorized into submission. They really belong in hospitals for the criminally insane, if we still have those.

Posted by: JewishOdysseus at June 01, 2017 10:22 AM (N/T7m)

679 I would submit, kind sir, that you are correct in all the particulars except one...

Yes, they see passivity as weakness...

But it is because they are like unto animals, you named them correctly;
Social Justice Wolves.

To the moral / Christian man; Your preachers have harmed you, by demanding you behave as 'moral men', and 'turn the other cheek'. It was also written to 'sell your coat and buy a sword'. This is because there are levels of evil, from a basically moral man making an insult, to the psychopathic killer, do we conflate both as the same thing? The moral man turns the cheek to demonstrate the superiority of his character, but he also knows when to defend the innocent. Holding to a doctrine, or ideology, in the face of evil, allows evil to thrive... in essence, it is a 'doctrine of devils'.

As others have noted above the Way of Ghandi, was the way of the Dalai Lahma, the Animals took his country. The SJWs are taught there is no God, so how would you expect them to behave? Even those who have elevated their ideology to the status of a moral god, do not understand that this was all predicted a long time ago... In Revelation 10, John was given 'The Little Book', which was of "Sweet words on the tongue, like honey, that grows bitter in the belly". This is the most perfect definition of political correctness I've ever read.

The Beast is coming, it is The Animal within man. It has been said over and over, that civilization is merely a veneer over the souls of animals. Now we see that to be true. Ace is right, it is time to understand, what time we're in... it is time for the Righteous man to "do exploits". It is also time to understand, that righteous men bare burdens until they can't, that evil will win the short game... because they are evil, but the good must take up the sword to defend the innocent.

681 One of your most spot on commentaries, Ace. The only leverage, short of violence, is economic. And for decades the wet Right has been telling us this is not allowed (as it might hurt the companies employing their relatives and themselves later on). So only the Left has had this tool to beat us with. The true Right needs to develop a consensus on boycotting left-leaning companies, and put into effect. Will that produce a right-leaning culture? Hardly, but it will move us back towards the middle.

The one element left out of your righteous philippic is the Soros factor. The paid brown shirts of the left, whether live on campus or multiplied robots online. That must be countered.

684 I know what you mean about engaging in debate with the dishonest. It never works. As a great man once said:

"The more I argued with them, the better I came to know their dialectic. First they counted on the stupidity of their adversary, and then, when there was no other way out, they themselves simply played stupid. If all this didn't help, they pretended not to understand, or, if challenged, they changed the subject in a hurry, quoted platitudes which, if you accepted them, they immediately related to entirely different matters, and then, if again attacked, gave ground and pretended not to know exactly what you were talking about. Whenever you tried to attack one of these apostles, your hand closed on a jelly-like slime which divided up and poured through your fingers, but in the next moment collected again.

But if you really struck one of these fellows so telling a blow that, observed by the audience, he couldn't help but agree, and if you believed that this had taken you at least one step forward, your amazement was great the next day. The [Marxist] had not the slightest recollection of the day before, he rattled off his same old nonsense as though nothing at all had happened, and, if indignantly challenged, affected amazement; he couldn't remember a thing, except that he had proved the correctness of his assertions the previous day."

The left is the enemy. Not in a metaphorical sense, but really for real. Don't ever forget that these same people put 100,000,000 people in their graves during the 20th century for not being leftist enough. They will do it to you too if given half a chance. Time to take them seriously.

Dr. Savage was ahead of his time. The left is insane--incurably so. They are TWANLOC. A reckoning is inevitable and it's not going to come from anything currently defined as a political party. But it is going to come, and the left is going to be very sorry that they provoked it.

Military Service is not just good for the country. As Gen Brut Krulak observed in his classic "First To Fight," it is good for the Manhood of the nation. Under the ministrations of a motivated and motivating Drill Instructor, young, unfocused boys are turned into useful and productive men ready to take their place in society.

And don't think these kinds can't be redeemed. After all, it was the same generation who swore an oath at the Oxford Union not to fight for king and country, who manned those Spitfire and Hurricane cockpits during the Battle of Britain. Our sons and daughters are made of just a stern a stuff.

You come a long way in this piece, but there remains a distance to travel. The good news is, these aren't your Grandaddy's commies. Narcissism doesn't lend itself to sacrifice or courage.

Huh? 1st amendment is still there, so your freedom of speech has not been impacted. Now, in a lawful society this only provides you w/ legal protection. In a free society, there can still be societal consequences in exercising these rights, among these can be economic (ex/ boycotts). I think you may be conflating these -- you still have the same freedom to say what you want -- but this doesn't immunize you from the consequences of your words.

I don't know of any laws in existence (in this country, anyway) against 'acting non-progressively', in public or otherwise.

I would respectfully submit that you have not provided an example of a single lost freedom
