Our Conservative Enemies

Hunting around for material this week, I stumbled on some stuff from Conservative Inc. that reminded me of why so many of us threw in the towel on them and made the journey to this side of the great divide. It also reminded me that there are lots of people just starting the journey from Buckley conservatism or libertarianism. A lot of things readers and listeners here take for granted, they are just experiencing. It’s why it is necessary to go back and play the standards once in a while. So, I have a show about cuck-bashing.

A funny thing I discovered while doing research is that The Weekly Standard website is now for subscribers only. They used to post their stuff to the public, but now you need a sub to read their articles. What that means is my posts now have more readers than anything at the Weekly Standard. They claim 65K subscribers as of 2012, which is probably down to 50K now, maybe less. This site gets about 100K unique readers every month. My heart is an alligator. Let’s hope their numbers continue to fall.

It’s not all good news. I saw that one of the dingbats NRO hires to churn out pap for them was on twitter demanding someone be purged. The fact that any young people still think that crap is edgy or relevant means there is still plenty of work to be done. Like it or not, the cuck-o-sphere still has a vast audience for their surrender ideology. That’s why it is important to keep going over these arguments about the futility of Buckley conservatism and the danger of subversive neocons like Ben Shapiro.

This week I have the usual variety of items in the now standard format. Spreaker has the full show. I am up on Google Play now, so the Android commies can take me along when out disrespecting the country. I am on iTunes, which means the Apple Nazis can listen to me on their Hitler phones. The anarchists can catch me on iHeart Radio. YouTube also has the full podcast. Of course, there is a download link below. I’m now on Spotify, so the millennials can tune in when not sobbing over white privilege and toxic masculinity.

Mr. Man,

It seems to me that there is still a lot of free, yet still over priced, stuff up on Weekly Standard. Check out this little ditty from on of our “fellow Conservatives”:

https://www.weeklystandard.com/adam-rubenstein/steve-king-says-he-didnt-know-faith-goldy-was-a-white-nationalist

We really need to get away from the “Conservative” label. It muddies the water. There is going to be a battle for the Republican party starting in 2020, but in earnest in 2024, between the voters and the gaslighting of our “betters” like this slime ball.

“Steve King says he didn’t know faith goldy was a white nationalist”

Heh. It gets harder and harder to know what is the precise mixture of willful stupidity and actual malice with these f!cktards; at least with the Chosen you can pretty much always assume “malice”.

“White nationalist” and, even better, “white supremacist” are deliberate, malignant misrepresentations of what any sane, thinking person understands to be the actual key issues. It’s not a new thing to weaponize horseshit, but all the same, weaponized horseshit it is. Onya, Faith Goldy.

Yes, Lester Fewer, it’s almost impossible to overestimate the importance of the shorthand names used to describe positions. We can complain till we’re blue (or red) in the face that these terms don’t capture real-life subtleties and variety, but every advertising copywriter knows that a slogan is worth a thousand words of argument. Some suggestions for replacing standard journalese: Instead of white nationalist: white defender. White supporter. White advocate. (No, they’re not thrilling, but they have the advantage of sounding inherently neutral or “fair,” like “civil rights.”) And please, instead of “It’s okay to be white,” which is wobbly and… Read more »

I would go with the simple and matter-of-fact “White preservationist.” Put it in simple environmental and ecological terms, which of course it in fact is. This is at bottom not a question of “supremacy”, but rather an ecological question about the preservation of an endangered subspecies whose flourishing is demonstrably of vital importance to the survival of the species as a whole. The argument is quite plain: 1) It is manifestly evident that an overwhelming percentage of human prosperity derives from the White subspecies. 2) However, because of easily enumerated and readily understood biological and sociobiological circumstances which cannot be… Read more »

Yes, all your points are great. I was thinking “White Americans” because it’s a broad term simply indicating that white Americans built the wonderful country that all the brown people wanted to come ruin. It’s both a reminder as well as a promise.

I really know nothing of fundraising or tax law but I’ve been wondering recently whether these NR fundraisers are shams. Maybe in order to pretend to be a nonprofit so billionaires can write off their donations you have to periodically pretend to ask for contributions from the public. 210K barely pays Goldterd’s salary so that little money can’t possibly make or break them.

That was a good piece on Ben Shapiro. I admit I don’t follow Shapiro much, but the little I did see of him was entirely palatable – I disagree that he only punches right – he has a mean left hook and he uses it to devastating effect. He can reduce Lefty to a gobbling, hysterical wreck almost as effectively as you can. This bomb thing sticks in my craw too, to be honest. Yes, I can concede that this is just some false flag thing, and wouldn’t be surprised if it were at all. But… dammit…laughing about this kind… Read more »

There’s a very good essay in “A Fair Hearing” arguing that the real dividing line between cuck-right and alt-right is (1) race realism and (2) awareness of the JQ. Those are exactly the two things that Shapiro is at the gate to guard against. Note all the labels that he and his compatriots will slap on you if you try to cross that line: “racism”, “anti-semitism,” etc. Career-ending labels. Those labels are the weapons of the border guards.

You yourself, if I understand you correctly – are divided on the Jewish Question as am I. Of course we are going to scare the chit out of him and anyone in that demographic that wants to otherwise come to our side. But I can be reasoned with. If the nutter anti-Semites want to make soap out of the Jews that seriously deserve it – like… Read more »

In any war lots of good people are going to get hurt. I am with Team Whitey too, of course. Taking the discussion outside of politics, the Jews are going to test us to our moral and ethical limits, and probably beyond. They’ve tested their Maker often enough if the scriptures are to be believed.

I will need to study Shapiro. Like Jordan Peterson, he might still be a useful tool for flanking the left.

Their relatively small size, combined with a sense of accountability across the culture, have been very important. A large system, without widespread accountability, allows the economic sloth and huge “skim” that has always debilitated large-scale socialized systems. Small scale systems without accountability fail similarly.

And letting them immigrate here, in the mid to late 1800’s is why the midwest is semi-socialist in their voting.

Also, as their traditional culture has rotted away over the last 50 years, their social model has also broken down. More and more people started free riding.

As odd as Mormonism may be, I gotta say that all the Mormons I crossed paths with or worked with over the years have been polite, professional, industrious and many were goodlooking people as well. I rather think it’s the result of their Christian (such as it is) religion that makes them hardworking and decent. I bet that’s how most whites used to act before we abandoned God and going to church in exchange for moral relativism, nihilism and black ghetto culture. We could do with more whites like that in our country. (Just without the Mormonism!)

Good observations on the Ben Shapiro beenie. In his defense, perhaps he is merely signaling his religious devotion, a practice generally acceptable among Republicans. Exhibit kavanaugh’s “I will pray for that woman!” Lol. But hasn’t that always been part of the Jewish strategy? The chameleon nature of is it a religion or a race? Either, both, neither, what is more politically efficacious for the issue in question? I frequent these millennial chat rooms for things like magic the gathering and video games, and they are very pc on identity and race, but they are almost applauding and eulogistic of Jews… Read more »

It seems like we need to distinguish between “conservatives” like David French and Bill Crystal, in that one group is getting cucked and the other is doing the cucking.

The first group is the cuckservatives, of course.

But we need a name for the second. “Fakeservatives,” maybe? Meh, maybe we’ll have to stick with the old dogwhistle “neoconservatives.”

Hypercapitalism and marxism both have a 1-D view of humans as economic units. That is why they deny the existence of culture, race, biology, etc.

Hypercapitalists accept Karl Marx’s basic assumptions. Then they reach different conclusions. Globalism is just marxism for those lucky enough to be ‘more equal than others’.

Enjoyed today’s podcast, but I have a quibble. Describing media masthead cucks as the Progressive Movement palace guard is cute phrasing, but not accurate. In reality, they are fifth-column combatants operating behind enemy lines in times of war. They should be viewed as such and the harm they cause is quite serious and they should never be underestimated.

Unable to listen b/c granddaughter visiting, but note comments on Shapiro.

His biggest sin to me is his arrogation of a right to group solidarity to himself and anyone he approves of while denying it specifically to white people.
