God Save Us from #Woke Fake Conservatives

Via @davereaboi's twitter feed. If you're still on twitter and still not following, fix one of those two things.

Either get off twitter or follow reaboi.



(1) At this point, there's nobody on the Right who's the slightest bit surprised a Leftist agitator would create a provocation that would be used to create a slanderously false story against their ideological enemies on purpose.

(2) They're not surprised that the media ate it up, ran with it, and created a virtue signaling outrage mob--not like journalists but like press flaks and community organizers. Unsurprising, but we can't hate them anymore than we already do.

(3) There's been this social media phenomenon that’s bothered me for a long time: the weird compulsion to tweet your opinion on whatever is being talked about--even if it serves no rhetorical purpose--as if every news story **requires** your drive-by take.

(4) This compulsion is especially acute when it comes time for ritual denunciations. It feels like 80% of tweets are people who feel they need to put a marker down as denouncing this or that horrible person. (The apolitical form is "I hate [FOOD]" and then waiting for a debate.)

This is a Twitter Addiction thing. There are losers who have no other social connections except their fake internet palz on Twitter, and so they're never off the fucking thing, and of course this means that they must have opinions on every single "trending" thing on Twitter.

And when there's no trending thing on twitter, they make up some childish cutesy-patootsie bullshit to flirt-fight about like whether "[FOOD X] Is the Devil" or "[VILLAIN Y] was the Secret Hero of [MOVIE Z]."

It's fucking pathetic. They're so desperate to connect with anyone they will gladly join a lynch mob to scalp-hunt children just so they can feel the warm bustle of a virtual mob at their shoulders.

The other day I saw someone write, "Wow, watching football on twitter is really wild!"

Saddest thing I'd ever seen.

Living Your Best Life, I guess.


(5) Social media is inherently something of an affinity group echo-chamber, so there's a good deal of pressure to have your take marked down to reinforce your place among your peers, colleagues or in-group. Few people want to be ratio'd by their own followers if they dissent.

Yeah, and despite these people's belief that they're all Courageous, they're all pitiful cowards. They think they're courageous because they fight with people they do not know and are not in any peer group with.

But the amount of influence someone can exert on you is inversely proportional to their distance from you. In other words, there's not much bravery in telling some rando you never met and who isn't part of your little Twitter Jerk-Off Circle to fuck off, because he's far from you. You don't know him, you'll likely never see him again, and if he does bother you, you can block him.

It's the people in your social group that have the most influence over you. And this is where you'd show bravery, if you had any -- by disagreeing with them.

But the cucks don't. The cucks daren't. The cucks are like herd-animals gathering in a big circle, all trying to get to the very middle of the bustling crowd where it's the warmest and the safest.

They never disagree with each other. Indeed, they agree with each other so quickly on Twitter that one strongly suggests they get on the same page together in JournOList-style private list serves before all rushing out with the Consensus Group Opinion simultaneously.

When one cuck domino falls, all the cucks start toppling over in sequence.

One of these Soyboy Beta Cucks would have shown actual independence of mind, actual courage, and actual strength of character by disagreeing with the Herd of Independent Minds by simply saying, "this video is chopped up and it comes from a completely anonymous source. Have none of us learned anything the past six years of viral video scalp-hunting? Let's wait for the full video before condemning anyone."

But none of them did that. That would have separated them from the herd, and they are sniveling cowards who cannot bear the thought of being outside their pathetic pack for five Twitter Minutes.

But they're very much against Tribalism. Just ask them!



(6) Put another way, this phenomenon can be called Virtue Signaling. The VS doesn’t always have to be a bad take, or an incorrect opinion. Based on the folks I follow in my particular echo chamber, a certain type of moderate conservative seem to be prone to engaging in it.

(7) IT COSTS YOU NOTHING TO NOT HAVE A QUICK, KNEE-JERK CONDEMNATION OF EVERYTHING ALLEGED ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

Well, some of us know you guys understand that; after all, there’s *plenty* of skepticism to go around when it's a story emerging from the Right.

( For 3 years, many have used the excuse of Trump to want to believe anything the media alleges about him or people in his orbit. Suddenly, the media had become trustworthy, at least as it relates to Trumpworld--and everything from BuzzFeed or NYT was treated as on the level.

(9) Many of us grew to resent this, not because we were such fans of Trump--what you allege--but because our view of the media and the Left didn't soften.

This can't be repeated enough. Some of us didn't change our beliefs.

But some of us sure did reverse ourselves regarding the integrity and credibility of leftwing media outlets.

For some, suddenly these were the Bee's Knees.

Just before the Special Counsel announced the BuzzFeed story was FakeNews, Seth Mandel had a multi-tweet screed condemning those who didn't accept BuzzFeed as a legitimate, credible news organization.

But see, xis principles are eternal and unchanging.


(10) People are furious that those of you who bought into it and couldn't resist making knee-jerk Virtue Signaling condemnations have not yet learned about the nature of the enemy we're fighting:

(11) Activists are trained to set up these scenarios, the media runs with stories that are too good to check because they reinforce their biases. They do this on purpose. You just have to read Lefty activist literature. It's all there, for decades. *Not knowing is your failure.*

Correct, and this is similar to my point: The "I didn't know the media and leftist agitators could lie to me" defense was always bullshit and we're not accepting it any longer.

If you offer it: You are a fucking liar. Full stop.

You know damn well they lie. You just approve of the lies and wish to help spread them.


(12) Considering that it costs nothing to wait for more facts, many of us have noticed that your biases against a large chunk of the Right are pretty similar to the Left's. You seem to agree with the Left that the conservative base is a bunch of racists.

Correct. The left looks at every single white conservative kid and thinks, "Most likely a racist rapist."

It's increasingly obvious that the swathes of the "Right" which dominate Our Media see white male kids as likely racist rapists, too. Exactly as the left does.

In what way is someone who has such vicious bigotries about you and your children an "ally"?

Are there any cases in history where people held such viciously bigoted views of people and yet called themselves "political allies"?

No, there are not. It makes no sense. These people are now functionally on the left, even though it is not economically prudent for them to admit it yet.

Political association is mostly a negative thing. You don't join the party you love; you join the party opposing the party you hate.

It is very, very clear that the alleged Conservative Media Class hates and deplores the actual conservative voting base as much as the left does.

And it is only a matter of time before they begin admitting that they are more and more enamored of progressive policy prescriptions. We saw this with Jen Rubin and Bret Stephens and Rick Wilson and Bill Kristol.

Do you think those are isolated cases? No, because political affiliation is about the gut and the heart more than it is about the head. People who grow up in liberal areas don't adopt liberal positions because they've been intellectually convinced of them. They adopt liberal positions because the people they know and like seem to believe in liberal ideas, and they like those people and want to get along, so they naturally adopt those beliefs as well.

We are now in Year Three of the Conservative Donor/Media Class' increasingly vicious, personal war on the actual conservative voting base.

Does anyone really think that after years of complete emotional alienation from actual conservatives these Paycheck Conservatives are still going to be pushing the second amendment and the pro-life cause?

No. They will slowly but inexorably take the same path that Rubin, Stephens, Kristol, and Wilson took -- they will begin realigning their political/intellectual selves to comport with the dominant mode of thinking of their actual kinship Tribe.

They're already doing that, of course. Suspecting that any white conservative boy is probably a Secret Racist is just one part of adopting the entire Progressive Ideology.

13) Rather than thinking the totally reasonable thing--"hey, that looks bad, but this is my tribe, so at least they get the benefit of a few hours where the full story will emerge"--there wasn't a moment's hesitation about thinking the worst of these conservative kids.

Yup. Because, like the progressives they are/are becoming, they fundamentally despise conservatives and want to hurt them.


(14) So there's a choice: either (a) you acted foolishly in believing the media and the activist Left, AGAIN; or (b) the Right is really not your tribe after all. There may be more options, but for the people who are raking NRO over the coals today, that's what they see.

(15) I just read @AceofSpadesHQ, who put this same choice in his inimitable style http://acecomments.mu.nu/?post=379322

"Actually his style is quite imitable." -- Jonah Goldberg, progressive, plagiarist

(16) One more thing: The moment I saw an old Native American man show up at a Pro-Life protest beating a native drum, it was reasonably clear that the guy was, at the very least, an experienced political actor. That alone should've given pause to the narrative!

Fucking racist Deplorable.

23 One of the things I liked about Twitter, back when I was on, was that I could connect directly with people without having to go through 'their people'.

If I like a writer or director, I could just say 'good job' directly. If I liked an author or editor, I could say so without having to go to WorldCon or World Fantasy.

That was nice. So was finding fellow authors and supporting their work and commenting on stuff. The short character count worked against any real communication, though.

Twitter works best for comedy, boobs and rage.

Sadly rage seems to have won.

I left the platform when the hate was starting to overflow, maybe around GamerGate, or at least just before the Sad Puppies business exposed just how bad the SciFi/Fantasy world was.

I don't miss it, much.

I still check out Razorfist's twitter or AtC or KBdaBear. But that's it.

I've even stopped checking in with Jim/Metokur.

48 Munchausen Outrage by Proxy.

Attention gives you a Serotonin hit. It literally gives you pleasure, whether its Real Life Attention, OR Internet attention.

This is what drives Facebook, Twitter, and other social Media.

One way to get said attention, is to show your outrage for something that happened, even though it had nothing to do with you PERSONALLY. Thus, Outrage by Proxy.

So, they get their Serotonin hit for being Outraged on someone else's behalf.

This affects both the Left, AND the Right.

89 >>> They will slowly but inexorably take the same path that Rubin, Stephens, Kristol, and Wilson took -- they will begin realigning their political/intellectual selves to comport with the dominant mode of thinking of their actual kinship Tribe.

I don't mind people doing this in theory. Classic liberals are being redpilled and realizing, to their horror, that they are moving to the right. Dave Rubin, Jordan Peterson, Sargon, Tim Pool, all are slowly realizing that their party has left them.

The thing is they are honest abut their transformation. They admit it, even if they find it embarrassing or weird, like putting on new skin.

The problem with the GOPe is they are not brave enough to admit it. They are Woke, the left's form of redpilling, but still refuse to let go of the Elephant skin and embrace the full power of the Donkey suit.

They do not realize that while they dither, their Ass is showing.

93 I missed out on the thread where Frankovich forgave himself. For someone who claims to be so familiar with Catholic sacraments he missed an part of the Rite of Reconciliation. First you confess, then you promise not to do it again then you do penance or try to atone, put things Right, so to speak.

To make his repentance sincere he will need to apologise to those he hurt, the boys and their families and then the rest of the conservatives.

Second, to make amends he will have to write positively or at least really objectively about Trump, his voters and any MAGA hat wearers.

Third, he cannot go back to his bad old practices of writing negatively about those he claims are on his side. This will take some time, especially the part of not sneering at conservatives. He will need to have a proven track record before being fully forgiven.

How's that, Mr Catholic or even Mr Christian?

Exactly. Nathan Phillips showed up with his own camera crew. Don't tell me this wasn't a setup from the start. If not those kids, it would have been some other group. Those people were there specifically to put a hit on someone from the March For Life.

165 STRIKE DOWN THIS EVIL GRAY SQUARE OF INSANITY


PUNCTUATION AND FORMATTING GODS HEAR MY CRY!!!

Posted by: mikeyG at January 22, 2019 05:19 PM (LL1Be)

166 Rather than improve the dialogue, social media has atrophied it into bulbous, gaseous mob. Who determines what is trending and why? There isn't a bit of intellectual introspection and factual examination that I see. It largely a pathos driven herd of group-thinkers, who, if they had to express a thought on their own and actually defend it, would fold like a lawn chair in a windstorm.

I say this all the time: what are your credentials and how have you established them? Not formally, but even argumentatively. Could you carry on an actual factual argument or discussion for five minutes more than superficially? The answer from about 95% of the social media crowd and the general media themselves is- no.

It used to be that a good journalist would immerse themselves in a particular subject to root out the truth. They largely don't do that anymore because the verifiable truth uncomfortably destroys the preconceived notions their herd TOLD them were true. Heck, they continue to strike them and tell them it's alright even when the truth is self evident and destroys their fantasies.

It's really ultimately a sickness.

Posted by: Marcus T at January 22, 2019 05:19 PM (IBzqd)

167 Does anyone really think that after years of complete emotional alienation from actual conservatives these Paycheck Conservatives are still going to be pushing the second amendment and the pro-life cause?

C'mon, Ace. You are smarter than this. What "conservatives" push is not a political issue. It is their books. They don't want the Constitution to govern the nation: they will be obsolete very quickly if they actually bring that closer. Jordan Peterson didn't want Kavanaugh to stay on the Supreme Court: he made a very stupid attempt to sway the base, and forever branded himself Controlled Opposition in America. So did Ben Shapiro. They'll even smear the March for Life as a bunch of deplorables: not because they for a second believed those kids were bad, but because they hate traditional Christianity.

Donald Trump is advancing nationalist conservatism. It's great for the people, not so much for multinationals, and it terrifies them.

Many if not most journalists have always had the story written before they did the research - that is why they are journalists and not scientists. The sad fact is the journalists for hire are being exposed in a large way now. Upton Sinclair was a fabulist whose goal was to nationalize the meat packing & he made up stories to try to make it happen one hundred years later it is no different.

Progressivism is concerned entirely and absolutely with race.

Remember that Little Billy Ayers wanted to start a race war so he could have his revolution, take over, and kill 125 million Americans.

He never stopped believing. He just burrowed back into "education" and continued his work. And that work informed SCOAMF to a great degree. The evidence of that is everywhere these days.

There are so many dimensions and rooms and chambers and fields where this story takes us. I've been thinking about the school and diocese that rushed that condemnation onto the school website (which is still down as of now).

Here's the message, kids: The "leaders" had no faith in you. They saw a two-minute video that was snipped out of a day-long event and decided that video defined you. They didn't ask what came before, after, or on either side; they made an IMMEDIATE JUDGMENT based on those 120 seconds.

They have no faith in you.


You know who has more faith in its members? MS-13. The Bloods. The Crips. If someone went after their homeys the way the MSM went after you, that someone would be made to answer.

The leaders who were supposed to guide you and give you the protection of a group threw you to the wolves. You need have no faith in them.

They're absolutely certain that this kind of thing is going on and if the just dig deep enough, they'll find it.

That's why the NRO crowd jumped on this. They absolutely believe that any Catholic who wears a MAGA hat would taunt an old American Indian Vietnam veteran.

Think for a moment about what miserable creatures these NRO types are. They spend their careers writing for an audience they utterly despise but have to pretend to like.

He's right to be angry. We should all be angry. I should note that Ace's anger has become legendary on social media. I've seen two references to AoS in the last few days on Twitter, one from Schlichter and another from someone whom I can't recall right now. Both were references to Ace's anger, somehow distinct from the man, as if Ace himself is just a vessel for this communal rage.

Everyone likes & relates to Ace's anger. They'd invite over for parties, if they could.

266 This one time, at my therapist's, I remembered that I was raped by a group of smirking Covington Catholic schoolboys wearing MAGA hats.

They also had kidnapped a Native American tribal elder who was a retired five-star general who had planned and commanded the 'left hook' by the coalition armies in the first Iraq War. My hippocampus retains a strong memory that when one of boys littered a beer can on the ground a single tear fell down his cheek.

The event left me with severe MAGA hat-related PTSD and my husband has asked our member of congress if xe would introduce legislation making the wearing of such hats a federal hate crime.

The only way my trauma could in any way be relieved would be if Ace of Spades, Dave Reaboi and the other mean, hateful fascist czarist nazi Putinbots would stop criticizing Jen Rubin, Bret Stephens, Rick Wilson, Bill Kristol and the other thought-leader conservatives.

For any of the grifter, silver spoon conservative media to look down on anyone for low character? Let alone this President? That is enraging. What they mean, honestly, is that the President is culturally plebian. Working class. And he makes it look effortless.

They'll never forgive him for that. He's literally the anti-FDR in that respect.

Chief Nathan says he's willing to meet with the Covington Boys.

Again. The Teachable Moment. The moment where the victim and the criminal are set on the same moral plane and the victim is enjoined to examine his conscience, see the world through his oppressor's eyes, and go forth in a more forgiving, open-minded, and less offensive way.


Would Alyssa Milano tell an abuse victim to "meet with" her rapist so we can all come together to understand each other's perspectives and work to forgive and see things through the other person's eyes?

I couldn't get to my keyboard on one of the threads below where the NRO hides behind the passive voice, admits to "piling on," thus absolving themselves of individual responsibility and simply being part of an exuberant mosh pit, and then "moving on" in a philosophical way, lamenting the human folly that we all share. But it's popped up again, no surprise, thanks to Nathan Phillips's "offer" to let the Covington kids discover how offensive and blameworthy they truly are.

Ruth wasn't unanimous mostly because the first ballot had an ungodly amount of names on it, by virtue of being the first ever HoF ballot.

Aaron and Mays weren't unanimous because dumb people left them off because Ruth wasn't unanimous. (Some people blame racism - I think that's a red herring. Mike Schmidt and Johnny Bench and Yogi Berra and Tom Seaver weren't unanimous either)

Your plaque doesn't say how many votes you got. Hell it doesn't even say if you were a BBWAA vote or went in through one of the committees. I'm for anything that makes voters stop casting silly protest votes.

I thought that too at first. Now I think they just want open borders, that all that "character" and "muh principles" bs really meant they wanted open borders. Remember they hated Cruz too, but less because he was marginally credentialed and they thought that might click-in to get them "compromise" on amnesty.

Some people left off Ted Williams because he wasn't a good fielder. That's stupid, but at least it's an excuse. Mays was a perfect player so you can't say "oh but he didn't do X well enough."

I have no problem if one person leaves Riveria off to keep the non unanimous rule in play. Mainly because I think it silly that a reliever would be the first. I would probably not vote for him on first ballot for same reasons.

If it isn't him, will it be Jeter? I'm guessing Riveria has a better chance.

Edgar Martinez in his prime, was the best pure hitter I ever saw live. Ken Griffey Jr was also amazing, but Edgar had an eye and a bat with amazing control. Pitchers hated to face Edgar.

The DH is named for him. Yes, NL fans, I understand you don't care, that's ok. It takes nothing away from his awesomeness.

The only reason Edgar isn't already there, was because the Mariners kept a good 3rd baseman in front of him, Jim Presley, even though Edgar's bat was ready. Cost him 2 to 3 years of statistics. This is the only reason we are still talking about Edgar not being in the HOF, where he belongs.

471 The Indian was an agent provocateur, trying to get a reaction on camera. This is his shtick. It would have been reasonable to assume that was Sasha Baron Cohen in a new disguise.

A bit like Veritas, but with the following differences:
Veritas targets professional politicians and big organizations, not high school students.
Veritas are quite professional at this point; this was an amateur act.

This is because left-wing provocateurs don't need any better, because they get this much cover from the mainstream media. Their act doesn't need to be even remotely plausible; after this much preparation, their public will swallow anything.

But they'll be back with more sophisticated productions. The money and fame are quite good, probably.

547 Just have to mention: In addition the NRO's non-apology apology drama, what about the issue of them feeling SO COMPELLED to condemn the "menacing" behavior of these boys, which if true, WOULD have amounted to standing too close to a Progressive activist and smiling.

Hey asshats, where were/are you when Antifa and other Progressive activists actually, you know, ASSAULT (let alone "menace") every-day conservatives on the street? Silence is deafening here folks. In case Ace's arguments about the ass-hattery of these asshats, let it sink in a moment that these same asshats don't lift a finger "in the spur of the moment" or days or weeks afterward, when real out-n-out violence is committed by the Progressives. They can all go F--k themselves.

549 It's hard to rank cucks on awfulness. But surely at the pinnacle must be the cucks who join the communist lynch mob, and when contrary facts emerge (and, more importantly, they are consequently exposed as leftists), scrub their social media accounts and pretend to be offended by---the same left-wing mobs they joined earlier. Examples are Ben Shapiro, Guy Benson, Jonah Goldberg and Erick Erickson.

Following closely are those who encourage those targeted unfairly and onlookers to cuck so as to avoid the unpleasantries. Basically, it is victim blaming. Think Baseball Crank.


Next in the hierarchy of awfulness come those who issue faux apologies. Examples would be Hugh Hewitt, Rich Lowry and S.E. Cupp.

Perhaps the least offensive are the uber cucks like Space Boy Tom Nichols, who can't even pretend to have changed his mind despite whatever the evidence shows to him.

Just shun and cast off these disgusting bastards and never look back.

You do? Good. Now remember when you saw the mug shots of the G-thugs, as they stared down their noses defiantly at the police photographer?

You do? Good. Now remember how much you hated those thugs and their defiant stares, and wanted to punch them?

You do? Good. Well that is the same level of hatred that far too many white Americans feel when they see a smiling, uncowed, clean-cut white male smiling.

The difference is, your hatred for violent thugs is justified by their dangerous criminal behavior, while the elites' hatred for innocent whites is not. That elite/mainstream hatred of whites was implanted by commie schoolteachers and newsmedia incitement.

605 I think my old adage that 'People are stupid' is standing the test of time.

These people are following the path most people do when they have cognitive dissonance in the actions they want to take. They have built their entire lives and livelihood around the fact that they are Conservative Thought Leaders. When what they are doing to maintain their social status and livelihood is no longer really conservative- then it is obvious that the principles have changed and they are leading it to a more perfect form of Conservatism.

Mutable conscience and the shifting stands of morals are nothing new- and neither are these guys. It is hard to take a stand and say this is where I am burning my ships.

726 It will be interesting to see if, post Buzzfeed and MAGAhat-hate Smile-gate, ex posters on the site pop back in. The_Donald has red-pilled ppl post all the time saying hey, guess what you guys might have been right about Trump. There is always an updated comment saying how they are being so welcomed into the MAGA fold and love it.

I have a feeling the same thing would happen here too, and I would welcome anyone back. But it is very, VERY hard to admit when you are wrong. And TDS is the hardest disease to shake.

But if the Horde will accept a girl like me who likes pineapple on her pizza, I suspect they will accept anyone.

727 I need to add to my post at 650, that our kid volunteered for A-stan. He was one of 500 Marines based on Okinawa who did. They all returned, but a few have committed suicide, and several they trained with, and became close friends with at 29 Palms, died within the first three weeks there.

761 Bitch and Chuckie have reportedly agreed on producing two bills as a way to break the shutdown deadlock. One bill will have what Trump wants. The second bill will be a three-week CR to open government.

Maybe I'm missing some eleven-dimensional chess-like nuance here, but I don't see how this helps the GOP in the least.

Unfortunately, we see it the same way.

And I'm half German heritage. It's in my genes."

The root form is in everyone's genes, it's a piece of the dark side of humanity. "Otherizing" those seen as competing groups was a survival strategy when men lived in small tribes and clans; it was a way to enforce group loyalty in a competitive and harsh world. Later on, as societies developed, ruthless leaders found it to be a very useful tool to use in order to control and direct their followers. (and so far as the Jews were concerned, it was a great way for those leaders to grab their gold) Once we got to the point where this power could be abused by nation-states, then the consequences became truly horrific.

786 I listened to the unrelenting requests to give money to NRO when I was still listening to The Editors' podcast. I didn't because I was too cheap and I've always been able to get what I wanted for free. But the constant pearl-clutching about Trump and how he "expressed himself" got old and I couldn't listen anymore.

Now, I have new reasons never again to listen to the Editors' podcast, and my thriftiness is way down on the list of why I'll never give money to NRO. For an organization that does what it did this weekend? Not. One. Dime.
