Be Not Afraid

Do not be afraid; our fate
Cannot be taken from us; it is a gift.

I was in the market this morning, doing the weekly ritual and I came around the corner with my carriage to see two people in the middle of the aisle chatting. Their carriages were next to them, so that you could maybe squeeze by on one side. Some people were trying to do exactly that when I came upon the scene. There were a couple people in front of me trying to figure out how to get around the two selfish idiots. I walked up to them and loudly said, “Have your chat somewhere else. The rest of us have to shop here too.”

Both people were immediately embarrassed, and hustled to get out of the way. They were just being inconsiderate, but they were oblivious to it, because others were too polite to confront them with this reality. It’s a good example of how being polite is easily turned into a weapon against you, even unintentionally, as was the case here. It’s is also a good example of people often having to be slapped in the face before they notice the elephant in the room. The events of this weekend are another great example of this.

On Saturday, a lunatic went on a shooting spree at a synagogue. I posted on Gab that the result will be a hellish backlash by our rulers against dissidents and dissident web sites like Gab. Most likely, Gab would be de-platformed and some heretics would be hurled into the void. Part of it is just rage, as much of what keeps our rulers in place is the rage they stoke among the anti-whites. The more important role of pogroms like we are about to endure is they send a message. The idea is to scare those sympathetic to the dissidents.

These events serve another purpose though. Like those folks in the market who were oblivious to what they were doing, what’s happening now is opening eyes. I’ve had a dozen exchanges in the last 24 hours with normies wondering how it is possible that the people in charge can so easily pull the plug on a site like Gab. There’s no question that lots of normies respond to these attacks with calls for greater conformity, but lots of people who “trust the system” start to question those beliefs when they see this stuff.

That’s always been the challenge for our side. It’s never been about race realism, the JQ or the nature of Progressivism. Those are useful tools, but the real goal is to convince people that the system they are supporting is really just a fiction. More specifically, the political dynamic of Left versus Right, Red versus Blue and Democrat versus Republican, is just theater. After all, if conservatives are unable to and unwilling to conserve and defend basic rights like speech and association, what’s their real role in this?

The fact that the people in charge are free to read your e-mail, track your behavior and spy on you in your own home is not that obvious to people. The reason is white people are trusting. They just assume the people running these tech giants share their civic sensibilities. When they see tech giants and massive banks squashing dissidents like bugs, by throwing them off the internet and out of the banking system, some of those normal white people begin to suspect we have been right all along about our rulers.

It’s easy to get down about these things. Inevitably, sites you read will be shuttered during this pogrom. There will be a rash of heretics doxxed out of their jobs. Gab is already de-platformed, but it will not be the last. My guess is sites like Unz are next, as they are already getting the Alex Jones treatment from the usual suspects. Look for Republicans to “join their colleagues on the Left” to support wide-scale de-platforming of sites that question the official orthodoxy. Maybe even pass a law to make it official.

Reality is that thing that does not go away when you stop believing in it and the people who rule over us are at war with reality. That’s always been their Achilles’ heel and the reason they take extreme measures against even the smallest dissidents. Gab had about a million users. It’s a tiny speck in the social media universe. When you live in constant fear of people waking up from the dream and challenging your rule, even the smallest hint of eyes opening up is a mortal threat. The giant lashes out in fear, not in confidence.

It’s a long war though and when you’re the insurgency, it means lots of set backs, missteps and failures, but it also means slow incremental gains. Ten years ago a blog like this would not have many readers. When Barak Obama assumed power, no one bothered talking about freedom of speech. Now, even the most genteel normie suspects his rights are under assault. Every day, our numbers grow, despite the relentless pressure, and their paranoia grows, despite their efforts to stamp us out.

So, they took out one of our sites, but already clubs are reforming in quiet places on the internet. Normies who were on Gab for free speech reasons are now thinking it is a good idea to join a book club or pool party. As much as it sucks to lose a platform, it goes a long way toward swelling our ranks. It’s also a reminder that the great revolutions in Western history were organized by dissidents passing notes and having private conversations over drinks. Our rulers are probably doing as a favor by forcing us into the shadows.

From there we came outside and saw the stars

From an accelerationist standpoint we want them to launch a bigger purge. NBC purging Megyn Kelly would have been a bigger story if not for the terrorism drowning everything out. Purges have a tendency to create sympathy for the victim, and even better if the left gets cocky and demands outright “hate speech” laws.

You offer cold comfort, Z man. But we shouldn’t be comfortable. We have to recognize that our traditional confidence in the essential benevolence of our institutions may once have been right on the whole but no longer applies. If there is to be any protection now, we have to create it, individually or in “underground” alliances.

The corporate state’s repression will succeed in many cases, but as you say, some normies will get the message and clear away mental cobwebs. Which effect turns out to be the stronger will be, as Wellington said after Waterloo, “a closely run thing.”

Fringe activists tend to receive tolerance from wider society when their numbers are few and they are not perceived as a threat. When Communism was perceived as a clear and present danger, the First and Second Red Scares saw many communists deported, imprisoned and fired. Eugene Debs was jailed. Now at least half of society thinks it is in danger of a clear and present danger from Neo-Nazis. And while a committed communist can expatriate to Cuba, where exactly is a Neo-Nazi supposed to go, Syria?

The more they tighten their grip….

The big problem with the radical left is that they only know how to attack. They do not understand how to play defense. As a result, they cannot govern. They can rule, but they can’t govern. They are clumsy and hamfisted. Their efforts at total control will only breed more resentment and resistance.

My recollection is that most were second and third sons of nobles who had titles but would inherit nothing and other nobles with titles but no money. Reconquest of the Iberian peninsula produced a lot nobles with military experience but also bled them of their money.

That’s pretty accurate for the Conquistadors. After Columbus was in the new world for awhile they did start empty in the prisons of their most violent criminals to send over as his helpers and his crew. He wrote repeatedly back to Isabel and Ferdinand that he could not control these men at all they had nothing to live for no family no children nothing.

Banning free speech, like turning hoses and attack dogs on blacks, is a nasty thing to watch. I don’t believe lefties will be able to sustain a prolonged assault on the Bill of Rights, no matter how badly they desire it. And this article reminds us of how lefty continually throws inconvenient stories down the memory hole. This is something that will bother normies when you point it out to them…

Shutting down Gab will work about as well as Prohibition, and the most tangible aspect of this censorship will be to further heighten emotions on both sides of the divide (which incidentally is the opposite effect intended by the Ruling Elites). I would argue that (much like the Pittsburgh killings that motivated it), it is another bellweather indicator of the coming chaos in society. More than half a century of extreme affluence has built up a mountain of deadweight in society, much like an accumulation of deadfall in a forest. One small spark can lead to a raging inferno that… Read more »

In a brief accounting of the European experience, I would disagree. Deplatforming works quite well, ask a certain Greek homosexual that used to be quite famous even though no one can spell his name. A few years ago there was a movement called PEGIDA that drew increasingly larger crowds every week protesting against Islam. The German police doxxed the leader, and the movement collapsed. Politics is a social event, and taking the fun away leads to disillusionment, which is exactly what the establishment wants.

Evolution teaches us that we will now grow stronger as a result of having to overcome the new hardships associated with censorship. The easy road makes us softer, the hard road makes us harder. Besides, big brother is monitoring everything on the internet and using AI to get inside people’s heads. Censorship is counterproductive to surveillance.

Eh, that’s more Lamarck than Darwin and successors. It’s also very much like Nietzche. Evolution doesn’t (other than epigenetic lamarckian feedback) mean that we will grow stronger in a biological or social manner. It simply culls those unfit, and leaves the survivors to breed. Nothing about evolution maintains there will be survivors. The Right has been locked out of cultural power for decades, relegated to the talk-radio, FNC ghetto. It didn’t make us stronger.

Deplatforming represents a significant transition in the attack on the right of free association. Whether it is ultimately successful or not remains to be seen; but what strikes me is that for years I and other Deplorables conceived free association primarily in terms of who I wished to exclude. It was my right to be free of forced association with blacks or gays or feminists that was constantly derided and derailed. Now, probably primarily due to the power of social media to overcome the barriers of time and distance, the attack focuses on depriving me of the ability to communicate… Read more »

I read Angelo Codevilla’s powerful essay “Our Revolution’s Logic”. https://americanmind.org/essays/our-revolutions-logic/ Well written. Thoughtful. Provocative. Money quote for me: “But the Progressives deplore the “deplorables” not to improve them, but to feel good about themselves. Hating people for what they are and because it feels good to hate them, is hate in its unalloyed form.” Sadly he loses that point in his discussion of what happens. What we should do in the future.

During difficult times, I find it useful to review my outlook.

Traditional whites are being dispossessed in our countries by mass immigration and other policies. Our thought leaders have decreed that to object to this dispossession is hatred. However, those who are not traditional whites are allowed to advocate for their groups. The reason for this double standard is that our leaders say that traditional whites have committed uniquely evil crimes throughout history and therefore must not be allowed to act collectively.

The core disagreement between me and my opponents is that what I call “dispossession” they call “justice.”

The reason these thought leaders succeeded is because whites are by and large a bunch of degenerates, who like the woman Z referred to (wearing the purple shirt and enthusiastically encouraging voter fraud), are incapable of the moral courage necessary to recognize and call out these warped and self-destructive concepts for what they are. If whites are to have any hope, they must avoid blaming others for their own degeneracy and take responsibility for all of the steps along the way when they failed to draw lines in the sand, make clear and necessary distinctions, refuse to meekly agree to… Read more »

The good rabbi was probably ‘short’ in his cut to the party boss.

So the inner party delivered a message of discipline to insiders, while posing it as martyrdom propaganda to us rubes.

Interested to see the response from the libertarian commenters here. “Go build your own Twitter” ain’t lookin so hot now, is it?

If that’s all you took from my comment, then you might need to reread.

Bolsonaro won by more than ten million votes. If Z’s number in the OP is accurate, then Gab’s entire user base is only about one million, with presumably only a tiny fraction of those hailing from Brazil.

I gave up on Gab months ago when I realized it’s nothing more than an adolescent popularity platform.

Aside from that, using that feckless JQ loon with a few weapons who thought he was a hero for murdering unarmed innocents as a hammer to bludgeon the dissidents is bound to happen. But I don’t care.

Keeping the loony-Left frothing is a workable strategy, for exactly the reasons you stated, AntiDem. No-one can maintain an incandescant rage indefinitely. And the great thing about this strategy is that it takes almost no effort to enrage a leftie and it’s fun!
