The Radical End

Usually, when you seek to take over something, you try not destroy it in the process of acquiring it. For example, if you’re trying to rise up the ranks of an organization, you don’t want to discredit the organization in the process. What’s the point of rising up the ranks, if the post you finally attain has been made worthless? This “conservative” instinct becomes stronger once you have gained control of whatever it was you were after. Now it is yours and you do what you must to protect and increase its value.

For example, when the Left took over the institutions of the American ruling elite, they were careful to not destroy them in the process. They destroyed the people in their way, for sure, but they were careful to avoid damaging the institutions too much. In fact, they worked to increase the power of the government, the schools and the colleges once they gained power over them. Today, logic says the Left should be extremely conservative, not wanting to alter anything, for fear of diminishing the power of what they have.

That’s the curious thing about what we are seeing from the Left. They have a firm grip on all of the institutions of the empire. They control the mass media. They control the administrative state and the education system. Global corporations are now run by people deeply invested in virtue signaling. The days of the Left having to pressure big business to do their bidding are long over. Big business is the vanguard of the Left now. Despite this, the Left is running around trying to scramble all of the rules.

When you’re in charge, the rules are your friend. After all, you get to write the rules, pick the people who enforce the rules and pick the people who interpret the rules. That is one of the best perks of being in control of the institutions. The people in charge of the empire should be the great defenders of law and order, as the rules work in their favor. Instead, everywhere you look, the Left is trying to destroy the authority and legitimacy of the things they control. It’s as if they are trying to burn down their own house to spite us.

A good example is the two big fake news stories this past week. The first one was an obvious put up job by some hack political operators. There was no way it could hold up under scrutiny. Left-wing media should have attacked it in order to maintain what little credibility they have on these issues. Similarly, they fell for the story about the teenagers and the Indian protester. Official media should have been all over debunking that story, as that would have made them look responsible and humane.

Instead, they helped egg on the feeding frenzy. Even if the facts were as originally presented, normal people will always take the side of a kid over an adult in a situation like this. It’s not as if the kids were a gang of blacks attacking an old man in the subway. They just stood their ground and peacefully protested on behalf of their issue. More people were red pilled by that story than by all the alt-right internet memes combined. The media frenzy was suicidal, self-destructive and avoidable.

Now, it could simply be the case where their fanatics on social media make it impossible to put the brakes on these feeding frenzies. A left-wing idiot posts fake news on Twitter and within hours it is retweeted a million times by other left-wing idiots. The speed of the process makes it impossible for the more sober minded media operations to react in a timely fashion. Before they can react, the fake news has rocketed around the internet and the debunking of it is well under way.

That’s not the case in other areas where you see the Left damaging their own cause. For example, they are undermining the law in an effort to swat at flies. Two years after Charlottesville, left-wing lesbian lawyer Roberta Kaplan is asking the court to manipulate Federal law so she can harass alt-right activists. Her scheme relies on reinterpreting old laws aimed at the KKK to terrorize people who attended the rally. Kaplan is a billionaire and she is suing people who don’t have two nickels to rub together.

This is not strictly an American issue. In Canada, two left-wing professors are suing a student, because the student shared a Jordan Peterson video. This video was so upsetting and triggering to the professors, they went on a crazy rant about Peterson on social media. They now fear he may sue them, so they are suing the student in an effort to shift the blame onto her. That sounds insane, but given the state of the courts in Canada, it is not out of the question that the student loses the case.

The only possible outcome of this sort of lawfare is to convince people that the law is a fraud. The only way a legal system can function is if the people think the law is both rational and predictable. Even if people don’t like the laws, they will obey them as long as the law is predictable. If left-wing lawyers manage to subvert the law by getting left-wing judges to sign off on what amounts to state terrorism, the law becomes the enemy of the people. The value of controlling the law and the courts declines.

Even if you want to put this sort of stuff aside as the actions of rogue individuals and mindless idiots on-line, think about some of the policies the Left is championing. One big item on their list is the normalization of open borders by debasing the value of things like driver’s licenses. States with left-wing government are in a rush to issue driver’s licenses to illegals. This will result in so much fraud that the picture ID will lose its value. All levels of government count on those ID’s being mostly accurate.

It’s not just for the benefit of foreigners. New York State is now offering a third option for biological sex. A big part of how the state keeps tabs on the citizenry is having their personal information, usually through the driver’s license process. How long before the body dysmorphics start demanding they can describe themselves as they feel they should be described, rather than their actual description? Cops will be looking for people claiming to be dinosaurs, having licenses with pictures of a T-Rex on them.

When you start to tabulate the radical agenda and the ad hoc activity of the Left, the most obvious conclusion is there is little coordination. The people at the top have lost control of the monster they created. They dream of creating a coalition of non-whiles, over which they will preside, so they can control the empire. The trouble is their coalition is always reminding the other side that such an arrangement will be a catastrophe. Again, the Left is mostly just radicalizing white people now.

The other conclusion is the radicalism of the Left has no limiting principle, so it has to spiral out of control. Like the Khmer Rouge, the logical end of this new radicalism is an orgy of self-destructive violence. That means it will not burn out on its own as happened in the 1970’s with student radicalism. This round of radicalism is for keeps and the Left will not stop until they are stopped. That’s going to put an end to civic nationalism and any thoughts of restoration. Whatever comes next comes after the final conflict.

Good point Glenn. There needs to be a coherent philosophy and organization to replace them when they implode, otherwise things will continue as they are now—the Left retreats, the Right steps in and stabilizes things, then the Left regroups and round 2 begins. There needs to be a knock out and that won’t happen without a substantive change in our thinking.

It’s no longer out of the ordinary to admit that the next Dem administration will have an agenda to revoke tax-exempt status from any “discriminatory” Christian institutions. One will have to wonder the logic jumps needed in the courts to avoid targeting Jewish institutions. That would probably be the minimum action, obviously the left would prefer to simply ban non-approved religion from being promoted to minors, as is the law in China. But the coalition politics may prevent this, assuming that a Kamala Administration still has the pretense of elections.

For the US, my guess is the old taxation (and disenfranchisement, imprisonment, terrorization, persecution) without representation trick that kicked off the first revolution will be good for the second. Circumventing the bill of rights; packing the supreme court; abolishing the electoral college; disbanding ICE. Once the Marxist-Bioleninists are (officially) back in power, the backlash will be ferocious. They will put this in place to ensure the heartland is rendered forever impotent to express their will, then go on with the usual purge and exile that accompanies all the Marxist takeovers we’ve seen in the last century.

A key feature of many of the anti-gun measures passed in the pass few years has been the mass civil disobedience. NY, NJ, CT, Boulder, the compliance rates have been miniscule. In Boulder one brave fellow published an op-Ed stating, in short, “I will not comply. Come and get me.”

Will non-compliance morph into willingness to use guns to protect gun rights? It seems more likely than it ever has before.

But unless there is organization behind it, a few guys getting shot over refusing to comply with TVGROs won’t make a difference.

Not a suggestion for the correct naming, but it does reek of a bastardization of the ‘broken window’ concept. That concept was meant to demonstrate that the police should not and would not overlook even minor crimes because it leads malcontents to continue testing more limits. It was not a strategy for prioritizing law enforcement resources.

For them, after infiltration it’s win-win. Remember, the main goal of CultMarx is to destroy, specifically to destroy white/right institutions. Look at the two possible outcomes: (1) They infiltrate an institution and then use it to promote their own ends: win. (2) They infiltrate an institution and then intentionally or unintentionally destroy it: win. Take an only semi-serious example: Star Wars.

That is certainly the case. And they’re going after the young over there too. A Japanese friend reports that her high-school son’s class was assigned the topic “Should Japan accept Muslim immigrants?” as a debate topic, and it was hinted that the only correct answer is “of course we should”.

In the 1930’s the Left set out to gain control of all the institutions of our culture. They have achieved their goal. With control of the school system, they control and shape the minds of each new generation of children which, it seems, leave the school system as children in adult bodies. This fact alone cements the Left’s control of politics into the future.

The left has to descend into madness because it is a radical religious movement. There is a standard desire among such adherents to seek greater purity and punishments for non believers. This is exploited by any huckster who wants to quickly gain status and power. The devotees normally would be easier to keep as a block because they know their futures are dependent on the party.

The kid was white, had a MAGA hat, and was at a pro-life rally – that’s enough for the Left. What’s really been disgraceful in this mess has been the initial reaction of the “Right” to blame the kid. They are trying to walk this back now (as are some of the members of the saner Left) but it’s too late. What a worthless bunch of losers.

It’s been remarkable that the cuckservatives and center-left figures were forced to back off. But forcing the far-left off will be much harder. The narrative has shifted to:

-Covington HS apparently once had a rapist on the basketball team
-Covington HS doesn’t have enough black students/staff
-Students apparently wore “blackface”

A lot of the anger here is coming not from Amerinds, but from blacks.

What is going to trip up any attempt at a total victory is the kids performing the “tomahawk chop” when the Philipps crew started drumming. I highly doubt this was intended as demeaning, but AIM-types are virulently hostile to such activity and find support in the sycophantic press.

No doubt the far Left won’t back off – they never do. These guys are still convinced that the Duke Lacrosse players were guilty, that Havan Monahan raped some chick on a bed of broken glass, and that Trump is a Russian agent. Hell, the older ones still think that Alger Hiss was framed. If you are waiting for these people to admit that they were wrong, you’ll be waiting a long time. Better to just ignore them.

The high school is Covington Catholic, NOT a public high school. It was interesting to hear Bill Cunningham on the radio last night. He was born in Covington KY, just across the river from Cincy, and is a Catholic. He is furious at the Mayor of the city and the Catholic Archbishop for immediately jumping on the kids for their imagined misdeeds. Have the two Republican Senators from KY, McConnell and Paul, weighed in on this? I hope somebody in the Republican Party fights back against this malign misrepresentation of what actually occurred.

A lot of discontent is percolating below the surface and will erupt into open defiance once the chaos takes us to a tipping point (see Yellow Vest movement). When that happens, the Progressive elites will use State power to crack down on dissidents, beginning with the arrest of presumed leaders, then employing false flag incidents to justify large scale detention, and ultimately instituting emergency powers to enable persecution of non-conformists throughout society. This is a tried-and-true strategy for tyrannical success. We cannot beat that with talk, or voting, or militia action, or hot civil war. But there are very effective… Read more »

Regarding normalization of open borders, Colorado authorized drivers licenses for illegal aliens a few years ago.

No citizenship (or even residency) check is required, so when Juan Valdez shows up at the DMV with a Honduran ID to get his Colorado drivers license he can register to vote with no questions asked.

If my state passed a process such as CO, I’d hang it up wrt voting.
