All Conservatives (Even Cucks) Will Be Alt-Right For 15 Minutes

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

A lot of Alt-Righters are not born but made. Steeled, if you will, by the crucible of their surrounding intellectual and political environment. If you had told me five years ago that I would regularly publish on one of those sites, then I would laughed too hard to remember to take any serious offense.

When Donald Trump first announced for President I understood his appeal as a threat to decency. So while I wasn’t as prone to chic outrage at The Far Right as some others in the mainstream of what passes for Amerikan Rightism, I only found out I was Alt-Right via the knife between two of my vertebrae.

This shiving is common Cuckservative behavior that has precedent amongst the Old Buckley Conservatism of which Cuckservatism is a degraded, pseudo-intellectual version. Perhaps watching National Review go from William F. Buckley to John Fund is akin to watching Romans turn into Italians. Perhaps that did a grave injustice to poor Queen Margherita who wisely popularized the culinary delicacy known as pizza.

Proto-cuck conservatism began with the French Revolution, but the most distinct form arose in the 1960s, when the Right abandoned the culture war in order to become an essentially libertarian agenda, assuming that it could not beat the Left on social issues and therefore, had to retreat into the ghetto of “freedom” including the freedom of association to withdraw from Leftist insanity. That failed, and merely ceded the field until Ronald Reagan gingerly picked it up, dusted off the saner parts of social conservatism, and incorporated it into a quasi-libertarian platform.

Buckley savagely sawed off The John Birch Society, Whittaker Chambers called the napalm down on poor Ayn Rand, but Rich Lowry could only invoke tired ad hominem to deplatform John Derbyshire.

Sadly, National Review has shown Amerika how to damage or wreck any Rightist who plays the game by the rules drafted by the Left. It always starts out as “Mr. So-And-So is usually a respectable Conservative, but after some event, article, or pronouncement we just can’t bring ourselves to identify with him….” I had it done to me on a blog I used to publish on.

The go-to insult right now is that So-And-So just went “Alt-Right” and no exorcist can bring them back again. The latest So-And-So being forcibly Alt-Righted is none other than Ben Domenech. He had a problem with the truth, you see. He started telling too damn much of it. His crimethink follows below.

The list of protests which turned violent – which, when I shared it, triggered numerous accusations that I was defending Nazis, a white supremacist, and caused a reporter for one magazine where I used to be a columnist to describe me as “alt-right” – includes: Oakland 2009, Akron 2009, Pittsburgh 2009, Santa Cruz 2010, Oakland 2010, Los Angeles 2010, Oakland 2011, Chicago 2012, Anaheim 2012, Brooklyn 2013, Ferguson 2014, New York City 2014, Baltimore 2015, Anaheim 2016, Chicago 2016, St Paul 2016, Milwaukee 2016, Charlotte 2016, Standing Rock 2016, Oakland 2016, Portland 2016, Washington DC 2017, Berkeley 2017, Anaheim 2017, Berkeley (again) 2017, Berkeley (again again) 2017, Olympia 2017, and Portland 2017.

The common denominator in all of these chimp-outs is the Leftism driving them on towards greater heights of onanistic stupidity. This is what happens when you let the Lefties out for recess unsupervised by large, burly security guards. This simple enumeration of factual data made the Happy-Go-Cucky Mr. Domenech an “Alt-Right” Freddie Krueger. This same Ben Domenech who habitually bemoans the GOP held captive by its baser elements as if he would react to meeting The Donald in person the way a nosferatu reacts to the display of a crucifix.

Personally, I think this is great. You learn and understand people better when you slog through the same heap of dung they have to. This closing paragraph makes me think he even gets why Alt-Rights want to seek alternatives to the feckless and impotent Not-So-Alternative-Right we have right now.

What will divide the country even more, though, is the fact that the right’s elites in media and politics are rushing to concede this battle before it is even joined, without thinking about where it inevitably leads. They are willing to trash the history of a portion of the nation in order to satisfy the American leftist elite, and they will run eagerly to fulfill that task in order to demonstrate how civilized they are. Along the way, they will run rampant over a portion of history that includes recognizable relatives for the World War II generation, toxifying the entire discussion. The direction this leads is much worse than where we currently are – it is the open conflict of a nation at war with itself over its own character. This war will end badly, no matter how it plays out. And the way this story ends is in demolishing Monticello brick by brick.

All Rightists (even the Cuckiest of the Cucks) are going to be Andy Warholed by your disingenuous “fellow Conservatives.” It will happen to anyone who wades out into the Flavian Ampitheatre of contemporary political and ideological strife and draws their gladius. We all are going to be made Alt-Right for 15 minutes.

So if this be treason, use it for all it can possibly be worth. Ben, we the authentic right in Amerika are your father. Join the Dark Side of The Force and actually be free to think, write and say what you believe in what remains of your soul. Once you’ve been Alt-Righted, or even thought about it, they will never let you walk through the door at National Review or The Washington Post again.

Why The Alt Lite Must Die

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

While abiding by the idea of “no punching to the right,” the Alt Right can and should evict the Alt Lite from its position because the Alt Lite represents entryism into the Alt Right which will eventually turn it as cucked as mainstream conservatives, again driving realists into underground extremist groups because their views cannot be publicly aired.

The Alt Lite consists of those who, responding to the incursion of the new Red Guard (SJWs) have spoken up in favor of free speech and freedom of association, served a highly useful purpose at first. It beat back the Leftist assault by appealing to neutral grounds, namely defense of liberty and freedom of thought. However, in doing so, it became popular with fence-sitters.

Fence-sitters understand the failure of Leftism but are unwilling to commit themselves to actions which would move us away from Leftism, preferring to patch up the leaky ship by creating more laws, rules and standards to try to avoid the normal situation, which is where the mob destroys any who deviate from its dogma. This will not work because the mob will only grow more powerful unless directly opposed.

In doing so, the Alt Lite have made themselves into a mirror image of mainstream conservatives, the so-called “RINOs” and “cucks.” The Alt Lite thinks it can work within the current system despite that system always rewarding what is popular, and what is popular always reflecting the combined fear of the herd instead of the best possible solutions for the long-term.

This causes civilization to die by internal toxicity, essentially piling up dysfunction until it reaches a crucial threshold and the resulting herd tantrum changes authority, almost always shifting toward more extreme and less responsible parties.

As astute readers may recall, the Alt Right has — forgive this — mixed heritage. It combines elements of the French New Right, anarcho-capitalism and libertarianism, paleoconservatism and social conservatism, Neoreaction, Traditionalism, National Socialism and Nietzschean conservatism. As a result, members tend to come in on one of these themes, and shape their further thinking according to that framework.

Libertarianism — originally called “classical liberalism” — is the notion that despite the advent of the Leftist state, the productive citizens can defend themselves with laws and so hold on to their wealth despite the clamor of a mob that demands what they have. As Plato tells us, this is a failing gambit:

When discord arose, then the two races were drawn different ways: the iron and brass fell to acquiring money and land and houses and gold and silver; but the gold and silver races, not wanting money but having the true riches in their own nature, inclined towards virtue and the ancient order of things. There was a battle between them, and at last they agreed to distribute their land and houses among individual owners; and they enslaved their friends and maintainers, whom they had formerly protected in the condition of freemen, and made of them subjects and servants; and they themselves were engaged in war and in keeping a watch against them.

…Do not their leaders deprive the rich of their estates and distribute them among the people; at the same time taking care to reserve the larger part for themselves?

Why, yes, he said, to that extent the people do share.
And the persons whose property is taken from them are compelled to defend themselves before the people as they best can?

As he reveals in this short passage, society begins its decline when it reverses its thought: instead of focusing itself on doing what is right and excellent, it becomes oriented toward whatever is popular and profitable, and from within that narrow range chooses an ersatz right upon which it bases its new direction. This might be analogous to Republicans.

At that point, the civilization begins a descent into democracy. When the herd has gained enough power, they demand the wealth of others, who defend themselves through an attempt at oligarchy, but in doing so, create the groundwork for tyranny, which occurs when the tyrants realize they can unite the drones against the productive. This describes libertarians in the age of Obama and Merkel.

The Alt Righters who descend from libertarians tend to be like this. They want to avoid Leftism by refusing to fund the Leftist state and asserting their own right to “liberty” and “freedom.” They forget that this was the default condition of America, but that in less than a century, this principle was replaced by obligation to the herd.

Libertarianism likes to think that markets regulate society. While this is more accurate than the idea that political questions are the sum total of what regulates society, it misses the point: a civilization is an ecosystem with several paths to power, of which economics is one, and therefore as soon as the productive retreat into libertarianism, the other paths become more important and are used to take down the productive.

This is how we got to our present state from our libertarian origins, both in Europe and America, which were themselves a response to the collapse of feudalism as rising populations overwhelmed the old order. The West succeeded and, by doing so, it failed, which happened a crucial time when it was recording from plagues and invasions and trying to find a new purpose, its old one being exhausted with having achieved success.

While libertarianism may slow the decline in the short term, it will be eventually overwhelmed, and it does not attempt the most important role of the Alt Right, which is pushing Western Civilization toward renewal by choosing a direction other than our current moribund path. Revisiting Plato:

When discord arose, then the two races were drawn different ways: the iron and brass fell to acquiring money and land and houses and gold and silver; but the gold and silver races, not wanting money but having the true riches in their own nature, inclined towards virtue and the ancient order of things.

The only path out of decline is to choose another path, and this will fit the pattern of the gold and silver races. Instead of thinking backward, namely justifying our decisions by what we think will make us wealthy and popular, we must strive for what is right and ensure that doing that makes people wealthy enough or at least comfortable. Only then do we escape decline.

For this reason, the Alt Lite must die. They impede the actual path of the Alt Right and replace it, much as the other cucks do, with a temporary path that is popular because it is easy. The only ideas that become popular are those which flatter the individuals in the herd. Those individuals are driven by personal fear, but by forming a group, they hide this selfish motivation behind grand-sounding ideologies.

Because of this intent toward destruction of the actual goal of the Alt Right, and its replacement with an easy and popular answer that avoids the vital question of Western resurrection, the Alt Lite constitutes entryism into the Alt Right. It subverts the idea which makes the Alt Right unique, which is a willingness to say the truth about the fall of Western Civilization and how to resurrect it, and replaces it with a scapegoat and an excuse to do little. The Alt Lite, if unchecked, will assimilate and destroy the Alt Right.

The only solution to this is for the Alt Right to leave the Alt Lite behind. They served a useful role in getting us started, but now our paths diverge. The Alt Lite wants to go live with the neckbeards, cucks and RINOs, and the Alt Right wants to forge ahead into brave new uncharted waters where there is a potential for actually ending these problems and creating a great civilization anew.

For us to do this, we must demonstrate competence in some way as a means of showing that we are not another ideological party — those with strong opinions based on human intent, but no real-world utility, and by that nature, a tendency to exclude realism in favor of ideological goals — and that we offer something to the average Western citizen on the path to Western restoration.

We cannot achieve this competence with the Alt Lite in tow. The instant we create something, they will dumb it down much as the Republicans did to conservatism, and then on a wave of popularity carrying it away. They will thus steal our victory but retain our brand, and so when the project fails, will then let us take the blame.

Instead, it is time for the Alt Right to come into its own. It needs its own organizations, publishers, radio, magazines, businesses and if possible, communities. It needs to show that its ideas work by implementing them in the simplest and least disruptive ways, and then showing that those work, before it moves on past the Alt Lite and all others who wish to stay marooned in this time of collapse and decay.
