Poof-Berries

One of the many harms inflicted on us by the hive minded lunatics running our society is the binary world view. Everything is either all good or all bad. As such, everyone must either fully embrace something or completely reject something. Indifference, ambivalence and moderation are not permissible in a world run by zealous fanatics. The only things that matter, that can matter, are those things that require a moral position. Everything else falls outside the set of things that exist, at least to the hive minded.

The most obvious example is homosexuality. Like all normal men, I am mildly intolerant of homosexuals. I get that they cannot help themselves and I get that it is “natural” in the same way schizophrenia is natural. I’m fine with them doing what they must, just as long as they do it in private. Of course, that makes me a monster. In the hive, you must either fully embrace homosexuality and what comes with it, or you are a homophobe and not fit for decent company. There’s no room for indifference or mild intolerance.

Hive mindedness is much more of a female attribute, than a masculine one. That’s not to imply that all women are howling at the moon zealots. It’s just that the fairer sex is much more inclined to deal in absolutes. The reason is that men have ways to arbitrate disputes that do not require a transcendent set of rules. One chimp squares off with the other chimp and the winner is the one who was right about where to find the best bananas. Women don’t have that so they look for a set of rules to figure out winners and losers.

It’s why it was no accident, that as soon as the girls got the vote, and the boys were off fighting the Kaiser, the girls banned alcohol and prostitution. To quote Judge Roy Bean, “Drinking and gambling and whoring were declared unlawful. All those things which come natural to men became crimes.” Morality, at least in the modern age, is the set of rules the girls use to control the boys, which is why the prim-faced moralizers of today are running around trying to stamp out anything that smacks of masculinity.

That came to mind reading this teary-eyed tantrum on National Review the other day. It is supposed to be a take down of Mike Cernovich, but it reads like a fit of jealously by one girl toward another, after the latter stole the former’s guy. The only thing the writer did not do is call Cerno a “doo-doo head” and claim he had cooties. National Review calls itself the flagship publication of conservatism, yet it routinely publishes articles that would be rejected by Ladies Home Journal for being less than serious.

The primary complaint in the piece is that Cernovich is a brute. There are a lot of ways to dismiss Cerno, I’ve done it a few times myself, but attacking his excessive masculinity is strikingly bizarre. Why would the writer latch onto that, rather than the fact that Cerno’s book is generally awful? Or, why not do the point and shriek about Cerno being associated with alt-right figures? The reason is the writer of that piece is a boy named Ian Tuttle, who appears to have spent his youth with his underwear over his head.

 

Calling him a boy is mean, but it is not inaccurate. He popped out of college two years ago and landed at National Review. He should be working at his local newspaper or maybe a TV station, covering girl’s softball games or perhaps the local crime beat. Maybe in a dozen years, after having lived in the world for a while as an adult, he could think about writing opinion pieces for adults about adult topics. At that point, he would not be bawling about how a guy like Cernovich is a brute.

That’s not the world of elite opinion journalism these days. Rich people send their not-so-bright off-spring to college to major in journalism. Then those boys and girls find their way to the big news sites or the elite journals of opinion. There they type out the approved messages and show up on approved TV shows to repeat those messages. It is cheap content from people, who are happy for the job and will not make any waves by asking the wrong questions or thinking the wrong thoughts.

What’s nuts about this is that there are still some adults working at National Review. The guy approving these posts is Charlie Cooke, but he’s a ridiculous poof-berry too so perhaps he is the one who commissioned it. Even so, you don’t have the dorks write the articles ranting about excessive masculinity. You leave those to the lesbians or the more masculine writers on the staff. Otherwise, you defeat your own purpose. A squealing tantrum from a ridiculous poof-berry convinces no one.

All joking aside, that’s one reason Buckley Conservatism is circling the bowl. It is chasing an audience that is locked up by their masters on the Left. Liberalism is the secular religion for the girls, mostly single white girls. They try to cobble together a coalition of hues for political reasons, but it is mostly a religion for cat ladies and the women who intend to be cat ladies. Buckley Conservatism is trying to fish in those waters, but that hole is all fished out and take that however you like.

For the love of God. The Tartars are at the gate and Mr. Tuttle is at the ramparts, crying himself to sleep.

It only reinforces the fact underneath cucks are not much different from cultural marxists. Just a lighter brand.
This is the law of the lowest common denominator in living color.

I don’t follow Cernovich, I think he puts himself out there for gain, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Everyone has to make a living. I made mine by helping people with physical problems and chopping out cancers. He makes his by promoting himself.
To me this is a girl fight between girls.

I celebrate his audacity and courage to single handedly go up against the hive. He was on 60 minutes. You know they edited his interview to paint him in an out of context light to suit the hives meme of Nazi Alt-Right White Supremicist out for himself. Andrew Breitbart brought the fight right to the cultural marxists, literally, physically. Remember how he would wade right into the for hire method actor/”protesters”. Remember how he called out the hive for pejoratives like “Tea Baggers” Astro-Turfing”, for the left calling Sarah Palin a “cunt”? You always need people with that kind of… Read more »

Hear, hear. Mike is quite fearless and has inspired many others to be the same. His detractors mock him, he offers to take them on and they wimp out. He rubs their faces in their cowardice and never lets them forget it. He also hates the same people I hate which is enough for me to forgive some of his shortcomings.

Doug

The one thing his detractors are concerned with more than anything is exactly all what you said. Divide people so you can conquer them, never let them become united, or gain solidarity, keep everyone going at each others throats. A united America, or at the very least a cascade of like minded thinking is existential stuff to the detractors. It’s obvious to say so, but it can not be said enough, we all don’t have to agree to make our country our home, because that is what America really is, our home, but to be a plurality of undeniable people… Read more »

It’s not just the NRO, ever look at those beltway males FoxNews brings on to comment on daily events, issues? They all look like pasty faced little boys or low T pajama boys. You know these guys never worked a real job in their lives or even dealt with reality for that matter. They walked right from the college bubble to the MSM/consultant/paid hack bubble world. Look at Evan McMullen aka: Eggs McMullen. A classic poof berry put up by the NeverTrumpers and Neo-Cons. If this is their idea of a male, they may as well put a bullet in… Read more »

The degeneration of “major” journalism such as National Review is yet another symptom of our decline as a society and culture.

But it can also be a weather-vane. If National Review dies out due to its journalistic pathology, then that is a sign that our species is getting healthier again. If it becomes more popular (including its advocacy for masculine subornation), then it likely means that the disease is metastasizing toward fatality.

Regardless, we are not going to talk our way into either outcome. If that were true, then psychiatry would cure everyone all the time.

In the past, the best journalists were the ones who did NOT major in journalism. Nowadays, collegiate schools of journalism are simply cranking out brainwashed cucks, sexual perverts, and feminists…all of whom have an edge to grind.

Nah, women don’t care about “absolutes” and “transcendent sets of rules” — they just care about what the highest-status, dominant people prefer and do their best to reinforce those preferences and make sure that all of the people that they themselves associate with share those preferences. They want to align themselves with the in-crowd, that’s all. It’s men who look to heaven and try to see what’s written there. That why it’s the men who rebel — sometimes it seems to them that what’s written in heaven opposes high-status preferences.

Dutch

Women want the things and mates that the other women want. Capturing a rich or alpha male is all about rubbing the other women’s noses in it. I have him, not you. Which throws down the gauntlet for the other women to steal him away. The other attributes of the male in question are irrelevant.

I agree with you but you are critiquing him for calling Cerno a brute while at the same time you are calling the writer a boy.

” I am mildly intolerant of homosexuals”
Pretty much sums it up for me. I’ve often wondered how any man can accept men who engage in sodomy with each other. I’ve mentioned this to a few females and they usually find this funny – i suppose there’s an obvious and painful reason for that.

“All joking aside, that’s one reason Buckley Conservatism is circling the bowl.”

I’m pretty sure that Buckley Conservatism has already been flushed and is in the sewer on the way to the waste purification plant. It just takes a long time to get there.
Speaking of homosexuality, I have to laugh when I hear the term homophobe floated by some libtard or poof (is there a difference?). Is any man actually “afraid” of a fag? Sure, you might be afraid to use a needle with them, but I think most men find them laughable. In a “sympathetic” sort of way.

For a boy to be actually afraid of Homosexuals is a good thing, an urban survival skill even. But, as you say, it’s one thing for a man to be repulsed, mildly or strongly, and another to actually be afraid.

Think of ‘homophobia’ as a recruitment meme to be used against insecure young guys: “Wasa matter, you too chicken to _____ me_?”.

Nice lil’ “lesbian” jab at Kevin D. Williamson, Zman, but you’ve done better full-scale take-downs of KDW before. Speaking of NR’s Daughters of Bilitis, the good one, Florence King, shuffled off this mortal coil in 2016. “The more immoral we become in big ways, the more puritanical we become in little ways.” – Florence King (1936-2016) “My object is to live in a place that does not call itself ‘the community with a heart.’ I want one of those godforsaken towns where all the young people leave and the rest sit on the porch with a rifle across their knees.”… Read more »

When I was a teen, educators and leaders frequently spoke of the “whole man concept.” Being smart might get you a job as an engineer or a scientist, but if you wanted to be a manager or leader, you had better have some varsity sports in your background, at least at the high school level. You never find anyone really talking about the “whole person concept.” The whole thing seems to have gone away. Observing my wife’s alpha friends,* I’ve found that none of them seem to have the least bit of athletic background. All of their competitive spirit seem… Read more »

We’ve survived an alpha-alpha marriage for 62 years. That’s what keeps us young. People who know us well (the few that are still alive) marvel that we’ve made it this far.

To survive as a people we need to: 1. Agree sexes are complements not duplicates and that IS freedom which will express naturally in various ways. 2. See clearly those among us whose goal it is to divide and conquer by playing on womens vanity because united we cannot be undermined. 3. Agree that there was some realignment that was needed but we are well past this era. 4. Fight FOR each other as ourselves and be steadfast on this, because without a strong complement we don’t survive. 5. Know we need to be internally consistent (there is no beauty… Read more »

Spot on Z. The best right wing journalism is coming from non-journalists like the Zman and the folks on his blog roll. The best journalism comes from folks who have lived in the real world …. Re: binary choices that is so true. Either you want to be the grand marshall of the Gay Pride parade wearing assless chaps , riding a unicycle with a ball-gag in your mouth or you want to put gays in ovens.

NRO and the likes are terrified of having young, smart tough guys write for them. They would seem too much like the alt-right crowd and these publications are not going anywhere near that.

Tuttle looks like the “supreme gentleman” elliot rogers, the INCEL killer from a few years back. how odd for someone like him to ever write (or think) about masculinity; it’s not something he’s going to be very familiar with.

I used to scoff at the idea that white people were entering a steady-state Hell from which there is no escape, but I’m not so sure now. The little dweeb with whom ZMan illustrated this essay seems pretty typical of the young white males I see every day, and I live in the most backward part of Flyover Country. You just have to watch these poor boys walking around and you can see from their body language that they are broken. Most were probably raised by single moms and grew up on a diet of PBS for KIds.

Cernovich and the alt-right media provide the right sources of information for our times. Since you really can’t trust any media to tell you the truth, all you can do is gather up as much information as you can and decide for yourself what makes sense. Cernovich, though a bit of a kook, often makes sense.

Cernovich is breaking some important stories, e.g. Susan Rice. Kudos to him for that. As to the child Tuttle, he needs to find out what the real world is about……

Except for your forays into misogyny (we’re not all the way you portray “women”), this is terrific as it skewers Ian Tuttle and Charles Cooke in the same article. Ian is indeed a boy. The internet has been overrun with them for the past number of months as they appear to have been hired on to cover the presidential primaries across the country. (Why does the old saw “Never send a boy to do a man’s job” come to mind?) Ian’s photo probably appears next to Effete in the dictionary, and Charles Cooke’s could be there as well.

FWIW, Ian did not just pop out of college and land at NR.

Ian Tuttle is the Thomas L. Rhodes Journalism Fellow at the National Review Institute. He was previously a NRI Buckley Journalism Fellow in 2014 and 2015. …. Ian graduated from St. John’s College (Annapolis, MD) in May 2014 with a degree in Liberal Arts.

From his official bio. He was spotted in college by NR and had a spot kept warm for him there.

It’s one of the things I’m enjoying about 1970s tv over the air. They aren’t relentlessly pushing homosexuality. And frankly, they all dress better. I was watching Kojak last night and commented on how the 70s were the height of black fashion.
