Silicon Valley Is Planet Anti-White

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

Unless you are Michael Jordan or The Donald, you may well have to withstand the rich and pungent odor that arises from a fine bouquet of assholes if you want to have a stable and remunerative career. Sometimes you can steel yourself athwart the nauseating nosegay of the converged SJW workplace from hell. Other times, the stones would cry out if you don’t just lay it out there and protest the impossibility of reason you are surrounded by.

While not being coruscating in his blinding whiteness, James Damore had finally had enough of the HR-driven, socially converged Sploogle work environment. He filed his Writ of You Have Got To Be Fvcking Kidding Me* against Google. He was promptly fired from the 120-Mike-Mike like a projectile using Charge Four to send him out into the Fever Swamps as far as he could be made to fly.

Having been professionally pulverized and socially ostracized and even morally otherised, James Damore has decided to at least try to salvage his reputation. He is suing Google for running a hostile work environment towards Caucasoids who identify as “He or Him” and nothing else. There are worse places than Google for White People to work. You’d just have to fly The Starship Enterprise for your daily commute to get there. Google earns its barely-favorable comparison to WASP-12b via a 19 step corporate culture of anti-white hatred. The Federalist describes what you help monetize if you can’t be bothered with using Duck-Duck-Go.

1. ‘Living as a Plural Being’ – Google furnishes a large number of internal mailing lists catering to employees with alternative lifestyles, including furries, polygamy, transgenderism, and plurality, for the purpose of discussing sexual topics. The only lifestyle that seems to not be openly discussed on Google’s internal forums is traditional heterosexual monogamy.

2. ‘Don’t hire white men’ – One employee wrote: “Alternate proposal: moratorium on hiring white cis heterosexual abled men who aren’t abuse survivors.”

3. ‘Bias busting’ – Damore recounts attending “voluntary” diversity training because Google employees stressed attendance as necessary if he were to advance in the company.

4. ‘I will keep hounding you until one of us fired’ – “You’re a misogynist and a terrible person,” read a late-night email from Alex Hidalgo, a Google engineer. “I will keep hounding you until one of us is fired. Fuck you.”

5. ‘The Derail document’ – “The thesis of this document is that on this one particular set of topics, the left-wing political frame of systematic bias, must always dominate, and the receiver must accept that frame, and its associated worldview, in their response,”

6. ‘You did something so amazing that Matthew Sachs awarded you a Peer Bonus’ – Here’s what Matthew Sachs had to say: Simone has been doing a fantastic job speaking up for Googley values and promoting [diversity and inclusion] in the wretched hive of scum and villainy that is [Damore’s memo] … Visit your award history page to see your certificate to print and proudly hang on your cube, wall, fridge, robot etc.”

7. ‘Discourage them all throughout the industry’ – “If we really care about diversity in tech, we don’t just need to chase serial offenders out of Google, we need to discourage them all throughout the industry,” a lengthy internal post on Damore read.

8. ‘I will hurt you’ – Damore’s memo prompted another employee to post this quote: “I’m a queer-ass nonbinary trans person that is fucking sick and tired of being told to open a dialogue with people who want me dead. We are at a point where the dialogue we need to be having with these people is ‘if you keep talking about this shit, i will hurt you.”

9. ‘Relies on crowdsourced harassment’ – “[Google] relies on crowdsourced harassment and ‘pecking’ to enforce social norms (including politics) that it feels it cannot write directly into its policies,” the suit states.

10. ‘I…apologized for whitesplaining’ – In a message from July 2017, a repentant Google employee publicly realized he was “whitesplaining” black history. “I (a white Googler), in an attempt to build a rapport with a Black Noogler and demonstrate my lack of ignorance of Black History, ended up whitesplaining Black History to him.

11. ‘You’re being blacklisted…at companies outside Google’ – “You’re being blacklisted by people at companies outside of Google,” he added. “You might not have been aware of this, but people know, people talk. There are always social consequences.”

12. Conservative author triggers ‘silent alarm’ over lunch with employee – Conservative blogger Curtis Yarvin, who advised Steve Bannon and other members of the Trump administration, triggered an alarm when he visited the Google campus to lunch with an employee. Security escorted him off the premises. The suit alleges other conservatives are on that list, including Alex Jones and Theodore Beale.

13. ‘Should inclusion on the list require something resembling a trial?’ – Burchett once proposed creating a list she would personally manage of “people who make diversity difficult,” to include employees who did things like make statements “unsupportive of diversity.” She suggested the list could serve as a punishment that could incentivize “better” behavior among the offenders listed.

14. ‘Throw away that bad apple with no regrets’ – “I was there at the lunch were said intern said the things he did,” Googler Matthew Seidl replied on the thread. “A number of people there did try to esquire as to what he was basing his belief on and give counter examples. They didn’t really take.” Another Googler chimed in, “Throw that bad apple away with no regrets.”

15. ‘I won’t say violence has no place’ – “How do people cope with this?” one employee wrote. “I’ve never been part of a military or war effort before. … I don’t know how useful I’ll be.” Another advised: “Get in touch with your friendly local antifa. … I won’t say violence has no place, but if you are going to be doing anything risky, I can’t overemphasize the important of networking with people who’ve been thinking about scenarios like the one we’re in for years, and building relationships with them. We are only powerful if we organize.”

16. ‘If you don’t want to get punched …’ – “There is literally only one reason an antifascist would be violent towards you. You are a fascist. … If you don’t want to get punched by an antifascist, it’s simple: don’t go to white supremacist rallies and don’t own white power symbols.”

17. ‘How to (Properly) Punch a Nazi’ – “How do you let people know you don’t take their ideas seriously? … No-platforming fascists does scale. So does punching one on camera.”

18. ‘Psychotic break from reality’ – Those who oppose certain liberal orthodoxy must be either “deeply deceived” or have had “some sort of psychotic break from reality,” another employee wrote, adding: “What you think of as information is nonsense.

19. ‘This is where my tolerance ends, with intolerance’ -“You can’t support Donald Trump without also supporting his racism, misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia,” a Googler wrote in a lengthy communication on Trump supporters. “Or even worse, if you vote for Donald Trump because of his economic policy or because you feel the other party is corrupt, then what you’re saying is that economics is more important than the safety of your peers. This is where my tolerance ends: with intolerance.”

Duck-Duck-Go, Gab.ai, Conservapedia, Discord and any non-converged competition that emerges to Silicon Valley. Popularize these apps in your circle. Make them favorites so that you can get there easily even if Micro-Suck and Google dominate your desktop space. Add suggestions in the comments. I make no claim to having the monopoly on those websites.

Google gets away with being Google in part because consumers of internet connectivity and data lack perfect information regarding what they pay money into and what their alternatives are. Part of our effort as subversives against Amerika should be informing people of the things The Cathedral would rather see memory-holed. We can’t make Google end its systematic bigotry. We can make them less relvant.

His name was James Damore. His offense was being a truth-teller. His legacy should be the continued spread of what he told us about. Take the fight to the Anti-White. You can do your part against #WhiteGenocide. Demonetized Leftists are increasingly disarmed.

Survivability Is Ideological Deterrence

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

So let’s say you live in the vicinity of a bully who gets off on playing Knock-Out King. Let’s say the police are so ineffective you’d rather they all just quit so you could save the tax money that pays their salary. So what can you do about King Kayo? Here are your options.

  1. Run and Hide. This involves avoiding the bully whenever avoidance is possible. This has an advantage of avoiding the risks associated with conflict. If you succeed, you don’t ever absorb the punch. This has several disadvantages. You lose freedom of action because you spend your time avoiding the bully. You lose the opportunity cost of what you could be doing instead of retreating. You lose freedom of association of being around anyone the bully associates with. And finally; everyone pretty much thinks you are a mantwat. Run and Hide is therefore a sub-optimal choice among other options.
  2. Hit ‘Em First. This involves walking right up to King Kayo and kicking him the nuts or cracking him with a Louisville Slugger before he even knows you are on to his game. This can be devestatingly effective if it works. He can’t knock you out if he is in The Land of Nighty-Nite. But then again, there are drawbacks. There is a social cost to being perceived as the guy who cracks someone’s ACL with the aluminum bat without being attacked first. You lose anyone who thinks it’s possible that you’ll smack them next. Your intent can be mistaken for cruelty or evil and *then* the hypothetical cop gets there in 10 seconds flat. Or, worse yet, they all decide thay should try and take you out because they are scared of your aluminum bat.
  3. You Develop the Ability to Withstand the Punch and Give it Back With Some Extra Love. This is the high road on dealing with bullies. Isegoria describes the advantage you get:

    Assume, for example, that you are trying to choose between two forces, one which we will call Force A, and the other Force B. A is such that if you strike first, you will be able to get 90% of the enemy, but if he strikes first, you will be able to get only 20% when you strike back. B is a different kind of force. It gets 40% of the enemy whether you or he strikes first. It is indifferent to how the war starts.

    The drawback here is that requires time and effort. You lose opportunity cost for the time and preparation needed to have a good deterrence. I believe the benefits outweigh the costs on this option, but you can’t pump an option w/o telling both sides.

Now, how does any of this relate to ideology? In the presnt, this relates to what any non-Marxian deals with in the contemporary SJW-dominated cultural scene. It’s the Spanish Inquisition out there and all non-SJWs are the (((Goldstiens))) to the SJW INGSOC. This begs the question of how these people are persecuting anyone. Fair question. Just calling someone a poop-head isn’t assault. It’s just unpleasant free speech.

Unfortunately, SJWs don’t just stop at unpleasant speech. They attack, attack and attack. They chase people like Gonzalo Lira, Pax Dickinson, James Damore, and numerous others. They kill careers over lack of defference to lifestyle perverts, radical feminists, raceturbators, and essentially Marxian ideals. And like the Knock-Out Game Artiste, they lean heavily on the sucker punch.

They lie. They project. They double down. Harvey Weinstein, at a pro-feminist march wearing a pussy hat is the archetypical example of what we can expect from the modern SJW Leftist. Like John Podesta complaining about dirty political deals with Russia influencing elections, the SJW cries out while he strikes. He lies and accusses you of doing exactly what he does to get his rocks off. The SJWs are dishonest, snarky, obnoxious bullies who seek to destroy you for doing exactly what they do for fun.

All gripes aside, how now does this relate to our initial palette of anti-bullying relate to an ideological fight between SJW thugs and Alt-Right cultural restorationists? The Run and Hide Strategy here is to publicly cuck. The Cuck attempts to redirect the SJW towards the “real racists.” This strategy has the short-term advantage of saving your job or reputation for a few more months. Then the piranhas circle back. You eventually run out of other white boys. Believe me, with SJWs you hang together, or they’ll damn sure make you hang separately.

The Hit ‘Em First tactic involves the aggressive Neo-Nazi. This would be someone looking for to clobber under the assumption that if they disagree, they just have it coming. The problem with this tactic is that after you succeed with it a few times (assuming you aren’t just shot and killed in the street), you wake up one morning, look in your mirror and see the SJW scumbag you deplore looking right back at you. If a BLM SJW is just a Nazi with a tan, then by converse, Protifa is no better than Antifa.

We therefore withstand the punch and then give it right back to them. How does this work? It starts with never conceding the premise of an SJW argument. They are wrong, therefore their assumptions are wrong. Always assume dishonest cynicism from both the arguments and premises from any SJW. Argue on their terms and you always lose and are always the bad guy. You’ve just given them permission to punish you.

Then, get together with your friends and condemn the SJW loudly. Make a point of specifically calling them out as a slimy liar, rather than merely claiming their facts are wrong. Stopping an SJW is all about destroying their moral pretensions so that they have no grounds to ever attempt to punish you. The entire point of their enterprise is to accuse you of something like racism, sexism, intolerance or any other nebulous, yet reputationally damning charge with which they can ruin you.

Once you’ve successfully impugned their reputation and destroyed their right to accuse you, make sure they pay a price for attacking you. Any sort of destructive action you can take that will make them known as a complainer, a grievance-monger, a hypocrite or a false accuser basically disarms them by making others unwilling to take their accusations seriously. So defend yourself by refusing to accept the merits of the accusation, gathering your allies to reject its veracity and then destroying the reputation of the SJW. This is ideological deterrence, it is how the Alt-Right can dissuade the SJWs from their purges and ideologically survive.

СССР, Inc.

Monday, August 14th, 2017

товарищ, nobody should emulate the late and unlamented CCCP. Even modern Communists won’t admit that The Stalin State was really Communist. So why do it? Well, there is the ego-bracing power that rulers get to wield in these banana republics where Lysenko’s biological theories kill all the banana trees.

If you want ego on Roger Clemmons Juice, go check your typical corporate CEO. If you want ego gone A-Rod, check out your typical SWPL/SJW. Cross-breed the two, create a SJW CEO, and the dickhead genes merge and mutate. They converge, and you get an adorable little Sauron. There can be no God but El Hombre on His Throne of Skulls at Corporate Headcutters. It should surprise no one that these types tend to follow the path of Robespierre, Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Hugo Chavez, killing any who fail to praise their works and oppressing the best so that the terror of the rest keeps everyone in line.

Starting with Lenin’s NKVD, these types take the scene-policing a bit too far. When this happens at the modern, converged corporation, it gets carried out by The HRKGB. Just as the ideological inquisitions forced Soviet citizens to see the world as the world was not, the rise of the HRKGB renders really original sports networks into ESPN. The new idea of music television gets degraded into MTV.

CNN has taken this to some epic heights. Their infamous doxxing of HanAssholeSolo was particularly late 80s Soviet when they outed the wrong hole. Like the boobs and idiots of the Politboro that couldn’t quite hold their vodka as well as Boris Yeltsin, CNN has yet to learn. Here’s their latest debacle at The CNN People’s Collective:

Jeffrey Lord, a prominent political analyst on CNN for the past two years, known for his passionate defense of Donald J. Trump, during the campaign and now as president, was fired on Thursday, August 10 after he used the words “Sieg Heil!” in a tweet. On Thursday morning, Lord was engaged in a strident Twitter exchange with Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters, the far left group that targets conservative media programs, hosts, and analysts. Lord had written several articles in American Spectator (published August 9 and August 10) critical of Media Matters, dubbing them Media Matters Fascists (MMF) for their latest attempt to suppress a conservative program, Sean Hannity’s nightly Fox News show…

CNN, of course, only aspires an ascent to the hypocritical peaks of PC Kilimanjaro recently obtained by the Kultists of Goolag. Leftists always lie, and Google’s CEO of Diversity Fascism Sundar Pichai uses that as an a model to reach that conclusion. The recent firing of James Damore over egregious free speech from the cubes was bad enough. It’s mischaracterization of what Damore said that even made David Brooks of The New York Times don his rarely-worn and linty Konservative Kolumnist Kostume to decry the painfully obvious agitprop.

Which brings us to Pichai, the supposed grown-up in the room. He could have wrestled with the tension between population-level research and individual experience. He could have stood up for the free flow of information. Instead he joined the mob. He fired Damore and wrote, “To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not O.K.” That is a blatantly dishonest characterization of the memo. Damore wrote nothing like that about his Google colleagues. Either Pichai is unprepared to understand the research (unlikely), is not capable of handling complex data flows (a bad trait in a C.E.O.) or was simply too afraid to stand up to a mob.

In the end David gets it wrong. He becomes the same lovable cuck the NYT sought out for its carefully regulated, neutered and vaguely conservative “contrary” opinion. What Brooks ultimately demands is that the lemming SJWs turn on the head SJW Pichai and deplatform him the way Damore was deplatformed. Lying about the head liar ought to solve everything wrong at CCCP, Inc. It worked wonders when the USSR replaced Kruschev with Brezhnev with Andropov with Gorbachev. Just find a nice blame toilet and everyone can go back to feeling comfortable as they ride down to hell in their bucket-like cubicles.

That in turn reveals the truth of the Soviets, the French Revolution, and every other grand screwup in humanity since the dawn of time: we can blame the leaders at the top, but we created them, by wanting safety and security more than we wanted goodness, sanity, health, normalcy, balance, order, beauty, hierarchy, purpose, virtue and meaning. Our scared little animals selves took over, and to protect us from our fears, we created an empire of lies. The only way to end that is to stop being afraid and to start demanding good instead of (illusory) safety, of which political correctness is but one of many varieties.

The real solution to all of this is to emulate James Damore. Prepare the bomb-shelter. Tell the truth. Eat the consequences. Move on to a new and more alive life outside of CCCP, Inc. All men die, some even get to truly live. Damore has shown us a hard, rocky path leading to greatness in a Lilliputian Age. We all need to tell CNN, ESPN, MTV, and Google what history told the Soviets: you are unrealistic liars and you fooled us once, but not again, and so now it is your turn to fall.

His Name Was James Damore

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Organizations that alienate their people will eventually get betrayed. I shed no tears that it just happened at Google. A young, promising engineer at Google, via Harvard, wrote a memo that ripped the lid off the Hades that is the Human Resources Diversity Policy at any typical major corporation.

The Pharisees, Seduccess and Diversity Matrons at Google did what SJWs do in this situation and wheeled out the guillotine. The predictable and morally vacuous condemnation of his views came from their EEOC apparachik Danielle Brown.

After the controversy swelled, Danielle Brown, Google’s new vice president for diversity, integrity and governance, sent a statement to staff condemning Damore’s views and reaffirmed the company’s stance on diversity. In internal discussion boards, multiple employees said they supported firing the author, and some said they would not choose to work with him, according to postings viewed by Bloomberg News. “We are unequivocal in our belief that diversity and inclusion are critical to our success as a company,” Brown said in the statement. “We’ll continue to stand for that and be committed to it for the long haul.”

We get the groundwork for deplatforming James Damore laid by a gormer Google rngineer named Yonatan Zunger. In it, he hides the SWPL/SJW panic attack behind dismissive and disingenuous pseudo-logic. Here’s what little meat he has to put on the bone.

What you just did was incredibly stupid and harmful. You just put out a manifesto inside the company arguing that some large fraction of your colleagues are at root not good enough to do their jobs, and that they’re only being kept in their jobs because of some political ideas. And worse than simply thinking these things or saying them in private, you’ve said them in a way that’s tried to legitimize this kind of thing across the company, causing other people to get up and say “wait, is that right?” I need to be very clear here: not only was nearly everything you said in that document wrong, the fact that you did that has caused significant harm to people across this company, and to the company’s entire ability to function.

Let’s address this SJW zampolit idiocy line by line.

  1. “What you just did was incredibly stupid and harmful.” Since when is having an opinion the Diversity Matrons don’t like stupid and harmful. James Damore believes what he believes and just said it. If he’s wrong and stupid, please blow it away. Prove him objectively and clearly wrong. Show us the evidence that allows you to conclude the Harvard Engineer is an idiot. I don’t like Harvard much. I’d enjoy seeing one of them fornicated and fed to the worms. You bring the evidence that supports your belief in Mr. Damore’s intellectual inferiority, and I’ll get my popcorn ready.
  2. “You just put out a manifesto inside the company arguing that some large fraction of your colleagues are at root not good enough to do their jobs, and that they’re only being kept in their jobs because of some political ideas.”
    1. This is not entirely the truth. They are kept in their jobs by massive legal leverage. There was a non-political reason for Damore’s defenestration as well.

      The memo and surrounding debate comes as Google fends off a lawsuit from the U.S. Department of Labor alleging the company systemically discriminates against women. Google has denied the charges, arguing that it doesn’t have a gender gap in pay, but has declined to share full salary information with the government. According to the company’s most recent demographic report, 69 percent of its workforce and 80 percent of its technical staff are male.

    2. What Zunger really fears is the idea that a large block of people would actively and intellectually resist all of these laws and call for their repeal. Right-wing websites are the least of Google’s problems. Right-wing customers, investors and entreprenuers are more of a clear and present danger to SJWtopia.

      Still, some right-wing websites had already lionized the memo’s author, and firing him could be seen as confirming some of the claims in the memo itself – that the company’s culture makes no room for dissenting political opinions. That outcome could galvanize any backlash against Alphabet’s efforts to make its workforce more diverse.

  3. “And worse than simply thinking these things or saying them in private, you’ve said them in a way that’s tried to legitimize this kind of thing across the company, causing other people to get up and say “wait, is that right?” Ultimately, good little SWPLs and SJWs are trained to fear the alternative to Diversity Matron Culture. They fear Freedom of Association. They care too much about being part of a like-minded crowd. They fear being excluded and hate anyone who questions the value of being invited into the clique. These fears go to the core of his concern over the memo legitimizing crimethink. There are questions Yonatan Zunger and his ideological clones just don’t want to be allowed in so-called “Corporate Culture” or “Polite Society.”
  4. “I need to be very clear here: not only was nearly everything you said in that document wrong, the fact that you did that has caused significant harm to people across this company, and to the company’s entire ability to function.” I got ready for the open dishonesty when Yonatan needed to be very clear.
    1. If nearly everything in the document was wrong, you would be laughing your butt off at him. There is a YouTuber named Cynthia G who claims all White People are Evil White Albanoids and cheers every article she can find that talks about low White birth rates. She is nicknamed “Synthetic G” and laughed about on channels all over YouTube. So go ahead, Yonatan. Make fun of James Damore and see if anyone laughs with you instead of at you.
    2. If this harms Google’s ability to function, than it must be the truth. If the truth hurts Google, than it obviously must be destroyed. Similar angst erupted when John Derbyshire offered a non-Black version of “the talk.” So why hasn’t Derbyshire been rendered as utterly risible as Synthetic G? Nobody has sat down and logically dismantled him yet. The Diversity Matrons had to exile him. The truth burns. It’s like acid to the iniquitous. If the truth hurts Google, then Google has it coming.

His name was James Damore. He saw the truth in its hideous eloquence and spoke forth in an inspired burst. It will be a manifesto for Freedom of Association and a culture of competence. Otherwise it will be the elegy of Dot Com Version 3.0. How long? Not long. James Damore had to speak or the very stones would cry out.

As Google Fires Damore, The Left Loses Its Victimhood Card

Monday, August 7th, 2017

Bloomberg News has confirmed that Google has fired James Damore, the author of a memorandum praising diversity but criticizing political correctness and diversity quotas:

James Damore, the Google engineer who wrote the note, confirmed his dismissal in an email, saying that he had been fired for “perpetuating gender stereotypes.” A Google representative didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

Google followed the typical pattern of criticizing the memorandum, encouraging the buildup of rage against it, talking about how the controversy hurt them, and finally dismissing the writer for failure to groupthink, abruptly confirming all of his accusations about the instability and dangers of political correctness.

Witness the timeline. First, the press attempts to establish a backstory suggesting that this is an event like several others, which despite being unproven are cited as fact, and are used to associate criticism of diversity with actual bad behavior:

The imbroglio at Google is the latest in a long string of incidents concerning gender bias and diversity in the tech enclave. Uber Technologies Inc. Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick lost his job in June amid scandals over sexual harassment, discrimination and an aggressive culture. Ellen Pao’s gender-discrimination lawsuit against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers in 2015 also brought the issue to light, and more women are speaking up to say they’ve been sidelined in the male-dominated industry, especially in engineering roles.

Note that some of this is simply lie; saying that someone “lost his job in June amid scandals” implies a causal relationship, when in fact Kalanick was fired for something else entirely.

Next, the company begins to assemble a hive mind:

Earlier on Monday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent a note to employees that said portions of the memo “violate our Code of Conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.” But he didn’t say if the company was taking action against the employee.

…After the controversy swelled, Danielle Brown, Google’s new vice president for diversity, integrity and governance, sent a statement to staff condemning Damore’s views and reaffirmed the company’s stance on diversity. In internal discussion boards, multiple employees said they supported firing the author, and some said they would not choose to work with him, according to postings viewed by Bloomberg News.

…Following the memo’s publication, multiple executives shared an article from a senior engineer who recently left the company, Yonatan Zunger. In the blog post, Zunger said that based on the context of the memo, he determined that he would “not in good conscience” assign any employees to work with its author.

With this setup, it was clear that only one outcome could occur, and this was the outcome that James Damore surely anticipated when he decided he would rather take his Harvard degree and work for a non-neurotic company instead, and decided to go out with a bang and gain himself an audience among realists rather than just fade away. He is now a celebrity and has the ability to write further on these topics and get paid well to do so.

The reason that this was predictable is that firing someone for wrongthink is not rare, but Typical Leftist Behavior. They always do this. As Hunter Wallace writes about AirBnB, another private company, choosing to deny accommodations to people attending the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, the Left have become the Establishment:

The Left now believes that all their old slogans like “non-discrimination, “non-violence,” “tolerance,” “free speech,””civil rights” and “equal rights … those things only belong to them now. The so-called “civil rights organizations” spend most of their time these days engaging in blacklisting, no-platforming, encouraging job discrimination and getting events and hotel reservations cancelled. Ironically, they have changed places with their old segregationist foes and have come to embrace their tactics.

Back in the 1960s, “civil rights activists” argued for opening up public accommodations to everyone. Today, *woke progressives* argue for just the opposite and high five AirBnb when it engages in housing discrimination. They cheer on violence, censorship, intolerance, blacklisting (which they used to call McCarthyism) and riot over free speech and freedom of assembly. They demand that Christian bakers and florists cater to gay weddings though. That’s “civil rights” now.

When the Left was starting its takeover of our civilization, it played the victim card by claiming it was being censored, oppressed and persecuted. This enabled it to gain sympathy among the oblivious middle classes, and made it a story that fit into the Enlightenment™-era narrative which says that individual humans are oppressed by any restraints on them like, you know, social order, moral and behavioral standards, and any values system which leads to a hierarchy.

With the end of WWII effectively destroying any political system but liberal democracy, and the fall of the Soviet Union removing any reminder that Leftism needed to be limited, the Left has run free throughout the West, and now that they are in positions of power, they are still playing the victimhood card but are actually victimizers. “The Leftist cries out as he strikes you!”

With one of the top companies in the world acting on behalf of Leftism, however, that victim card no longer has any credit on it. In fact, it has become clear to people that just like in the French Revolution and Soviet Union, Leftism has accelerated to full domination and subjugation mode. We have reached totalitarianism not through the Right, but through the Left.

As noted by renowned political thinker Samuel Huntington, this process is part of the rejection of ideology and its replacement with natural orders like tribe, faith and caste. People have now seen the end results of Leftism, and that liberal democracy always goes that way, and so now they seem themselves as the victims and the Leftists — including lapdog government, media and corporations like Google — as the oppressors.
