A Gay Old Time

The Democrat primary season is living up to its promise of being a stinging indictment of modern democracy. Thus far, they have staged two election shows. The first one was a disaster, as the party was unable to properly rig the results, so they effectively cancelled the whole thing. The second time they instructed the media to spend all their time celebrating the king, as it were, of participation trophies for his exemplary participation in the New Hampshire primary, while ignoring the winner.

Putting aside the clownishness of the show thus far, the New Hampshire primary is rather symbolic of the ruling class decay. Biden was propped up for almost a year as the face of the party center. He was supposed to be the guy, who was the moderate’s first choice and everyone else’s second choice. Blacks would support him as a proxy for Obama. The remaining whites would support “Working Class Joe.” Even the Bernie Bros would fall in line behind a traditional left-wing candidate.

In reality, Biden was a doddering old fool, who said embarrassing things in public when he had all of his marbles. No amount of media support and fake polling was going to convince people to support a guy about to keel over at any minute. Instead, the various tribes of the party were left to seek their own standard. That’s what we have witnessed this far. The Democratic coalition is coming apart as the camps dig in behind their candidate to the exclusion of others.

Pete Buttigieg is the millennial candidate in every way. Most likely his support came from his age cohort. Further, it was heavily female, with the male portion being the sorts, who support the case against consuming soy products. On the other hand, Klobuchar is picking up the old Hillary vote. These are the old hens, who think having a female president is the only thing that matters. Her bitchy obnoxiousness reminds them of every fight they won with their ex-husband.

That is the democratic coalition right now. On the one hand it is spoiled, entitled millennial voters. On the other it is their divorced mothers. Sure, blacks, Hispanics, legacy whites and bronze age communists are there, but the people who run the party are of the two groups rallying to Buttigieg and Klobuchar. Those other groups are just accessories. They always have been, but now it is becoming explicit. None of the top-tier candidates have any appeal outside honkyville.

The obvious exception to all of this is the Sanders tribe. For most of the 20th century, this group was carefully sidelined by a party that understood they needed their support, but could never let them on the stage. The Bernie faction was like the alcoholic brother that no one discussed. They were not hated, but everyone in the party hated the embarrassment they caused in polite company. The restraints are off now, so those freaks and weirdos are free to run wild in the public square.

In fairness, there is a parallel between the Bernie Bros and the populists who came out for Trump in the 2016 primaries. Much of Trump’s support was rooted in the decades of broken promises from conservatives. Similarly, the Bernie Bros feel cheated by a party that has promised them the worker’s paradise for decades. There is a strong anti-establishment vibe to the support for Sanders. The difference is that Trump was a genuine novice, while Sander is an old political warhorse.

That’s an important thing for dissidents to remember while watching this circus play out over the next few months. Some people in our ranks will talk about how the Bernie Bros are headed for a great awakening about modern politics. It will be analogous to what some on our side have learned in their disappointment over Trump. That’s self-indulgent nonsense. The invisible army of disaffected whites that came out for Trump was never under any illusions about him. They knew he was a protest vote.

Further, the Bernie Bros are not going to have their red pill moment when their guy gets robbed of the nomination. If he somehow gets the nomination, the Bernie Bros will not wake up to the reality of the Left when they run their “The Case Against Sanders” post in the New York Times. Unlike disaffected whites, the Sanders faction actually enjoys being treated like dirt by the party. They are the dog that barks like mad at the mailman from behind the door. The door is what really matters.

Putting all of that aside, the brewing chaos in the 2020 election is not a sign of a system breaking down, but the natural result of a society being destroyed. The project of pitting one group of whites against another can only end one way. That is a war between whites resulting in a fracturing of the white demographic. This plays to the interest of minority groups, which become just another tribe in the neighborhood. The two-party system cannot work in a balkanized, minority rule society.

More important, perhaps, is the cosmopolitan ruling class cannot function as designed in such a society. The managerial state needs the illusion of popular support and meritocratic success. That’s hardly possible when the only thing the people agree upon is their hatred of the ruling elite. The system cannot hold up when the various tribes are not permitted to have their guys in the system. It turns out that what allows the managerial state to establish itself will be what destroys it.

I was going to quote the next two lines – the ones about the spoiled millenials and their divorced mothers [Damn right!] – and pay essentially the same compliment. As to that latter I’ll borrow a line from R.L. Dabney and declare that they constitute what he defined as “that most abhorrent of all phenomena – an infidel woman.” As to the former, I’ll paraphrase the same author and declare that, given the circumstances of their upbringings, it is no surprise at all that they more closely resemble a race of demons than of human beings.

With both “bitchy obnoxiousness” and “their divorced mothers” as top contenders, I’m rooting for “the dog that barks like mad at the mailman from behind the door. ”

The Democratic clown show of degenerates shows why a full democracy is ruinous. We have effeminate males, gays, and cat-ladies pushing the direction of candidates who will be responsible for the long-term stability of our nation.
Think of how different it would be if the vote was limited to people with multi-generational skin in the game, specifically minimally third-generation Americans, married, with children. Literally 80% of the Democrat coalition would vaporize overnight.

Thinking about restricting the franchise back to the original intent is nice, but it’s not happening, so wishful thinking isn’t very helpful in the here and now. We’ve got a shitty hand, and we’ve got to play the cards we’ve been dealt. That means in practice encouraging and fomenting division among the leftist coalition, not with a goal of making them conservatives or part of our coalition, but simply causing chaos.

Patience and persistence. When I met my wife, she had just voted for Obama in 2008. Now she can’t get enough Trump, but is still a bit stuck in flag waving, civnat mode, which I have been slowly steering her out of. The other day I told her she could be a race realist without being racist. She said, “Race realist? I really like that phrase.”

Women may occasionally flirt with the thrill of the “bad boy”, but as oft pointed out here, are risk averse and will gravitate toward “the norm”, safety and social acceptability. The trick to peeling them off the poz wagon is to illuminate the increasing threat to their offspring, exposing them to a community of like-minded people, and showing them you personally don’t jeopardize their safety. For most white women, all the reasoning in the world won’t override that basic social/survival hardwiring. To that end we must build community, power, and legitimacy. None of these things initially run counter to the… Read more »

Status before safety at this point.

Team truth and beauty. Strong men of status. Women will attach to those men. The problem is how we do that as dissidents. Most young women are safe but not in the right ways.

PM, Exile and Screwtape, good points all around. Women naturally want to be in good graces with the tribe, but they also want a strong man and a strong tribe. Right now, white women view their tribe as TPTB and thus carefully look for signals as to how to stay in good with that tribe. We need to create a competing community, a community with the kind of men they want. Women will take on the mores of that community in a heartbeat if they believe it gives them and their children a better shot. Women will not come to… Read more »

Leg day!

We were unloading fresh greens on the sidewalk, south of Tribeca on Canal Street.

This is a gentrified district of art shops with big picture windows and organic grocers (us).

With our bunch of guys doing guy stuff, the girls in their long shirts and black leggings started mysteriously appearing nearby.

They would primp and preen with their reflections in those big picture windows, never -quite- glancing our way.

The amount of unmarried childless white people (all people, really) in their 30s is pretty staggering.

Gen X divorcees are now using tinder and other apps to sleep with dozens of these mid to late 30s washed up whores. Very easy I’ve heard.

The USA fertility rate is going to continue to plummet but asymetrically. Seems like everybody knows somebody from a religious family with 6 kids these days. Their share is going to grow quite quickly.

You don’t even need Tinder.

There’s some kind of “five stages of grief” process working out generationally with respect to the trauma of widespread divorce. Gen Z may be the first generation that’s learned to cope with the nuked family, albeit dysfunctionally. It’s more complicated than just “daddy issues,” but not a lot more. The girls in that 30’s age range over the last few years seem hardest hit, even more so than their 40-something shrew-sistas.

No men around.
That’s also the complaint in the Black community. No men to tame and teach the young men how to be providers and pillars.

The feminists got rich off of divorce lawyers, robbing the seed-corn of families, and now they teach woke female judges in university law school.

This is a vicious circle.

Larry Auster and many of his commenters used to argue for the following minimal electoral qualifications: Married *men*, with children (I’m not sure anyone ever argued for a specific or minimum number of children, but the plural “children” seems to imply more than one), who is also a net-taxpayer (meaning of course a man [or a family] who pays more in taxes than he receives in benefits – this would eliminate government employees, of course, and rightfully so.).

There is something about democracy as practiced since WW1 that is just not working. A lot of people here seem to have similar ideas to mine; women and loser men voting will not work. But aside from that Im not really sure what the ideal system should be.

At the current rate it will be approaching 95 million by 2024. They are already more than double the Black population.

Nope, I plan to vote for Bernie in the primary, hoping for a Fall wipeout. Which is probably what the Dems need to return to sanity.

I am not disappointed in Trump at all. You have to remember, he is up against half the country.

Turn it around: with all this lunacy going on, why is the dissident right still skulking in the shadows? Not trying to pick a fight or be a dink – I am just saying that we have to manage our expectations.

It’s almost as if the Democrats didn’t get the globohomo memo. None of the fools on offer, aside from Pete the Gay Mayor, are a Trudeau, a Macron, a Varadkar, a Sanna Marin (PM of Finland) et al. That is, young and woke. Damn that constitutional age requirement. If only AOC were four years older. Maybe the circus of wokeness will still be playing in America in 2024; but in Europe it already seems to be folding the tent.

Rand Paul? He has the Paul name, a learning experience from ‘16, he’s been a pretty staunch supporter of Trump and MAGA, and most importantly he’s been in DC for a decade but doesn’t reek of establishment.

I’d bet on him for GOP. Dems I have no idea, they’re a wreck and either someone comes out of nowhere in the next 4 years or they’re toast again.

Paul. It’s the only name I get a feeling about. But don’t quote me on that 🙂

With the preface this sounds melodramatic, I truly believe this will be the last semi-free and fair election in the United States and even it will be loaded with fraud and cheating. The Ruling Elite plans to do away with actual elections, full stop, after someone they view as dangerous (in the sense they cannot assassinate him without consequences) is out of office. There will be old Soviet-style affairs to give the imprimatur of legitimacy to “winners,” but most people will realize it is a sham and do little in response. There will be dissolutions here and there, sort of… Read more »

If the commie pig Bernie gets the demokrat nomination you can bet your ass that the entire media -esp. the NY Times- and all the dems will go all out for him. First off, the dems are in fact communists or very near communists; they literally hate capitalism. They also hate absolutely everything about the USA, which they consider a racist, imperialistic, homophobic world class trouble maker. And most of all, they hate Trump more than anything; it’s a real visceral contempt for him that they have. Honestly, if the democrats, all of them, could remove Trump at the cost… Read more »

Not just communism, but a race war against White people. Ironically enough, Jews have been in the forefront of political radicalism and cultural subversion dating back to the 19th Century, but non-Whites regard them as White. They’ll be victims, too.

“ non-Whites regard them as White”

Indeed, David Cole (a Jew, but cast out as a ‘Holocaust Revisionist’ for asking whether it was something like 4.5 million instead of SIX MILLION) wrote of this in Takimag: “Flinging poo at a Jew”. It’s worth a read.

And Cole’s message applies to those idiot East Asians at Ivy universities claiming to be oppressed POCs. Here’s a hint, you moronic bints (it’s usually females): the negros hate you more than they hate whites. Because you’re proof that nonwhites can get ahead. You make them look bad.

I take comfort in the fact that, as in the Soviet Union, most of the people the Communists are shooting and dumping in mass graves will be their fellow Communists. It’s much harder for commies to kill people who know the commies are coming to kill them.

PS- that afternoon, a trio of Greek art traders, fresh off the boat and first time to the U.S., came up to ask me if I would consider transporting fine statuary, vases, and artworks for them.

What I notice lately is the fragility of the coming generations. The capitalist corporate world is ever demanding and piling on multiple jobs into one employee while the next generation calls in sick because their dog died last night and they just need time to absorb the pain. In the meantime the number of reliable competent employees keeps shrinking. Trumpism in a way represents the get it done corporate cut throat culture while the Bernie bro’s and the divorced mothers and gay son’s of Klobachar and Buttigieg represent the new American workers coming the capitalists way. No wonder they want… Read more »

Boomer manages to extract hundreds of thousands of dollars from the parents, wreck two or three marriages, and sleep with at least one, possibly two of the Millennial women. At least three of the Millenials involved are still under the Boomer’s spell to the present, with one serving as a… Read more »

Just wanted to add that I think GLG is also correct about: 1) Corporate America overloading/understaffing its employees. I read a lot of STEM job descriptions, and in many of them I can often detect two, sometimes three actual jobs. I’ve also experienced this at work, and I’ve seen others experience this overloading. This is not viable long-term. 2) The number of competent, reliable employees is shrinking. This is a symptom of Boomers beginning to retire without credible replacements. GenX, as always, was largely forgotten about. Most Millenials seem to have been encouraged to pursue passion, rather than practical degrees.… Read more »

The only two women I ever hired (in the mid 90s) called in sick for 3 days for their dog’s funeral. Ridiculous children. I fired them and have never hired another woman since. As a side note, it’s become very difficult to fire people these days, so employers must be extremely discriminating in hiring to begin with and then carefully “encourage” an unsatisfactory employee to leave of their own accord, by reducing their hours, scheduling them on days they do not want and so on. CA actively stirs up a needlessly adversarial relationship between labor and management by encouraging employees… Read more »

Your diagnosis of the polity is a reasonable one; but it neglects an underlying reality that much of America’s economic activity is simple make work. The Pareto Principle is a powerful heuristic because it has proven accurate over so many domains, i.e. that 20% of the effort results in 80% of the outcome. Much as public school education has become a proxy for free day care rather than a means of successful pedagogy, many corporate and government jobs are simply the funnel for wealth and income distribution to sustain consumerism and tie the neo-serf class to the system.

Great essay and as usual the sting in the tail

It turns out that what allows the managerial state to establish itself will be what destroys it.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of scum. Although what succeeded Louis XVI in France was worse, nobody could argue against the fact that the existing power structure in 1789 got what it deserved, good and hard.

Helped “us” win? Yes, but was it because they loved those plucky American rebels and their revolutionary ideas; or was it because they still hated the English implacably? For the French, the American Revolution was merely a continuation of the Seven Year’s War, that little conflict known on our side of the pond as the French and Indian War and where George Washington earned his spurs fighting for the British side.

Louis XVI was an unexceptional king in exceptional times which, sadly, is the worst crime a Monarch can commit. He and his wife deserved exile, at worst.

You can argue that Napoleon was a more legitimate ruler than the Bourbons, and that the transition to Emperor Bonaparte was a necessary pivot. But the Jacobins? Every single one of those rats got exactly what they deserved, I only wish I’d been there to do it myself.

Two-party winner-take-all societies more commonly resemble South Africa than South Carolina. The “first past the post” model breaks down fast when the two parties’ agendas strongly diverge or they otherwise lose their common ground. It’s one thing to differ over the capital gains rate – it’s entirely another when 51% of your neighbors vote to nationalize your garage to house Abdi and Juglas. Muh Constitution 1.0 was supposed to prevent the latter overreach by limiting what government in general could do, but this was a systemic pipe-dream.

In re: South Africa. “One man, one vote, one time”

Terrifying to hear “serious” people discussing abolishing the electoral college in favor of a simple majority vote. Or the complaint that it’s “not fair” that my large state Senator represents millions more constituents than your small state Senator and their votes count as equal.

When those firewalls fail (and they will), the “One man, one vote, one time” election will end the republic. Democracy, which is tyranny, will rule.

Agreed. In a multi-culti polis the three-legged stool of Aristotle’s rhetoric is broken irretrievably. No shared major premise or enthymeme; thus no logos. Culture-based moral relativity; thus no ethos. All you’re left with is the emotive wailing of pathos: Orange Man bad, white people evil, black lives matter, #metoo, etc. Debate aimed at consensus on policy becomes impossible. Your only choice is to eat the soy and become woke or eat the meat and become deplorable. Make mine rib eye, served rare.

Americans are not willing to pack 8 or 10 people into a one-bedroom apartment at H-1B wages. This is one of the reasons that the H-1B program is so horrific for America.

The lone exception for Americans in STEM is the Defense industry, where almost all STEM positions are restricted to US Citizens. This is not necessarily that positive because there are tons of make-work jobs and programs in Defense and enormous amounts of waste that consume at least 50% of every Defense dollar spent.

Perhaps one should listen to more reliable sources than Black drug dealers before passing such information on.

Not sure if the tweet is correct or not wrt percentages, and if those percentage declines are in fact directly caused by H1b VISAs. Women in CS have risen and fallen with the economy as so many other tech jobs have. Certainly, the percentage of women in CS majors has never been near 50% or even 60% (as matches their numbers now in University). After immense effort and government grants and special programs, women in CS majors peaked at about 30+%, then steadily declined as per the tweet. However, male CS majors did *not* follow this trend!

It is too early to tell who will get the nomination, her or ButtPlug, but she is a vast improvement over Hillary.
