The Back Of The Hand

Establishment types were clucking about the news of Andrew Sullivan leaving his post at NY Magazine. He wrote a typically long winded farewell column, stating that he was being pushed out by the new woke rabble. Whether or not that is true is hard to know, as Sullivan is prone to exaggeration and hysteria, but it was accepted as true by so-called conservatives and the “old style” liberals. It was another ominous sign that the woke revolution is consolidating power.

The details of his case are not all that important, as it lines up with other incidents involving less creative story tellers. The New York Times has been dealing with a public revolt by the woke young staffers. These are mostly emotional young women of various flavors, who start sobbing whenever they hear a discouraging word. Collectively they become a storm of shrieking harpies that manages to get its way. These tantrums are now being spun as the new ideological revolution.

The incident itself offers some insight into how left-wing politics has evolved over the last decade. Sullivan is a competent and productive writer, but his insights are just banal liberal boilerplate. His act was always derivative. He is a reboot of Truman Capote or maybe the literary Liberace. He is a professional homosexual, who says harsh things about normal Americans, but in a flamboyant and flippant style. The establishment subversive always puts style over substance.

Nowadays, the outrageous gay guy act is the leisure suit of public performance. It’s not just out of style, it makes everyone stare at their shoes. In fact, gay males are now totally out of fashion on the Left. They have been replaced in the catalog with hairy Jewish guys in sundresses. In fact, the wide array of imaginary sexual identities has displaced suburban white girl feminism too. In order to get in the Progressive catalog, you better have at least two things going wrong for you.

The Sullivan incident and other similar happenings during this phase of the revolution puts the lie to the whole coalition of the fringes thing. If there was really an intelligence behind this stuff, playing four-dimensional political chess, they would not be swapping out the gays for guys in lady’s underwear. Feminists are also financially and organizationally strong. In reality, it is the old Progressive hatred of tradition manifesting itself as a quest for the novel and bizarre.

That’s the thing about the cultural revolution that gets missed. The communist revolution was serious about remaking society. They wanted to strip it down to the foundation stones and start fresh. They were even willing to tear up the foundation if they thought it necessary. The liberal democratic revolution is more like a redecorating party.  They are willing to make superficial changes, but only in the areas that people see. Sullivan was replaced by a new set of drapes and a transgender garden gnome.

The superficiality of this revolution may have been exposed by the maker of an energy drink last week. When he found out his females were going bonkers over the BLM stuff, he fired them. The Red Bull story may turn out to be an amusing turning point in the revolution. You can be sure lots of other corporate executives are looking at that story and wondering if that is not the right course. Just tell these harpies no and show them the door. The rest will pipe down in a hurry.

That was always the truth of feminism. All the bellowing about the patriarchy and male chauvinism was just a desperate cry for a firm hand. College men cruised the women’s studies department for a reason. It was where you could find the six who desperately wanted to hear she was a nine. Professional feminism was just the same thing, but the women were rapidly approaching the wall. Still, the firm hand worked just as well and it may turn out to be the antidote the woke pandemic.

This is the paradox of the cultural revolution. The Bolsheviks could carry on without liberals, monarchist and other types of socialists fighting with them for control. Once they eliminated their rivals, they set about creating their society. The same was true of the Maoists and Khmer Rouge. The old school radicals did not need the constant struggle to justify their existence. They just needed the specter of it to focus the attention of the revolution away from the failings of the revolution.

The modern radical cannot exist without the thing it is claiming as an enemy and it seeks to destroy. Black identity movements are entirety dependent on whites tolerating and indulging them. The old feminist line about a woman needing a man like a fish needs a bicycle was always just a coping mechanism. Feminism can only exist in the presence of normal males. Cultural Marxism is just the over indulged third child that endlessly acts out to get attention from her parents.

This suggests the revolution will continue until it gets the back of the hand. It will not be happy to dominate the institutions and push its opposition to the fringes. In fact, the further it pushes its opposition into the shadows, the angrier it will get, as what it wants is the confrontation. Starved of that confrontation it will grow increasingly berserk as it tries to flush out the opposition. It will endlessly provoke and harass until it gets the back of the hand it so desperately needs.

While the recent actions of Red Bull and Goya are commendable and encouraging, It’s only an opening act.

I’d anticipate that the Wokeness crowd will go after their distributors next. The Breitbart set won’t be able to crow about buying 2 dozen cans of Frijoles Negros if Kroger just flat-out won’t sell them.

Both Goya and Red Bull have money, nasty lawyers and in the later case, likely government backing from Austria. Both are hard targets.

I think the next steps will be absolutely fascinating, as it’s all been gamed out already on the badthinkers online. Red Bull and Goya will be pulled from store shelves, first from the supermarkets owned by the Woke; remember: Whole Foods is Amazon (though I think they were already too woke to carry it). Then they’ll try to distribute the product online, but Fedex will stop taking their packages after a few drivers get shot or distribution centres get bomb threats. If they still exist at this point, Red Bull / BadThink Foods Inc will get kicked off Visa/Mastercard/Paypal. Maybe… Read more »

Perhaps. But eventually, as Z says, this shite is going to stop. Even the guys in the little hats can’t shrug off diving sales and stock prices. For Red Bull, things are so bad now that it could be argued that firing the hag squad could be sold as an excellent PR tool. Trump got elected that way, the Goya guys are seeing a spike in sales, and giving Leftie and his perverts the finger is a marketable strategy that will only get more attractive as time goes by.

You could stop with the disposable plastic cartridges and get a safety razor. I recommend the Merkur 34C as an excellent German built tool for beginners.All you need then are blades. A box of 200 will last you a very long time. I use Astra blades made in Russia, personally. It all works out to be far cheaper, in the end.
Shaving will take longer, especially at first, but it is worth it. Once you swap over and master the art of it you soon think of cartridges as overpriced plastic crap.

Red Bull may be an excellent performer in the market, but its brand of caffeinated sugar water can easily be replaced. My money is that it gets knocked down as a name brand to keep the others woke companies in line. As a non-American, I’ve never heard of Goya before this week, so their sacrifice in the public square probably isn’t as important; they may be allowed to continue to operate under normal market pressures. The real game is getting the AAA international brands that spend big advertising bucks in line, then the revolution can advance elsewhere. The handling of… Read more »

Late stage capitalism exists quite well currently with Wokeist ideology. But, granted, that may not be a match meant to last. Wokeism seems to be designed to strangle itself.

It does seem to be happily married to feminism though. That’s a match made in heaven, to my eye.

I think a State pension scheme makes more sense myself. This takes the burden off US companies who are already dealing with a constrained market size. That said US culture does not allow for the Federal collection of more than 20% taxes and over around 16% it gets increasingly less returns. With a security mandate of 2.5% GDP for military spending this leaves lets say 14%. This would barely pay for Social Security and Medicare at current costs and nothing else. This means being a lot smarter with spending . As anyone wanting to stop working /retire at some point… Read more »

That’s why, in a free market, there is competition. Imagine a grocery store that doesn’t take cash or EBT, average prices are 10% more than the competition, but makes up for it with higher-quality (perhaps non-Woke) products. I’d sure shop there! 🙂

Red Bull is run by a 76-year old Austrian who decided to say no.

This “revolution” is mostly fraudulent. It’s part of the marketing push by the dnc to scare white women into voting for their crook in November to “return to normalcy”.

The future of the revolution is the same as the anti-war movement’s the day after Obama was elected.

I’ve had thoughts along similar lines, but what is more likely is that the revolution will be internalized. After three to six months, there will be a major Biden Administration attack on white nationalists/supremacists/identitarians as an existential threat to the nation. Sites like this will be shut down and whites will be persecuted. Slave “reparations” will be made mandatory.
But I’m not planning to do anything to help Trump. Maybe a Biden Administration is the only thing that will wake up Normie.

True, feminism, like faggot idolatry and adult coloring books are luxuries that can only exist in an artificial environment of extreme excess.

Feminism was just the eventual outgrowth of giving women the vote and then allowing them to flood colleges and the job market, clamoring to break through the proverbial glass ceiling that was holding them back from reaching their full potential.

She complained that her husband’s weakness had forced her to be the fighter. Naturally, this was exhausting – emotional exhaustion being a common theme among SJWs. Then it got… Read more »

There’s no denying that we’ve done this to ourselves. They used our basic decency and morality against us. Made us beg, broke us down. The fact that Trump’s infamous “they’ll let you grab ’em by the pussy” comment didn’t sink him spoke to the basic essence of our respective natures. If you are perceived by the gals as The Man, you can grab away with abandon. They LOVE the strong hand. Incidentally, this is why the verjeen is located at about hand height. It’s for ease of grabbing. Just like the reason women have smaller feet…so they can stand closer… Read more »

There were plenty of white men, and white communities, that stood up in the 50’s and 60’s, and they got smacked down by the government… hard. Remember, Ike sent in the troops to enforce desegregation. Many other examples of that kind of response. The massive race riots of the 60’s were given a pass by the media, and millions of whites watched as their cities burned with the only direct response from authorities coming after the fact. Want to know how many working class, mom and pop shops got torched, never to recover? Many thousands, in dozens of cities. White… Read more »

Nobody is saying that it will. The European, Christian country that was the USA is terminally ill. It won’t come back.

But there is going to be a “back of the hand” against what’s going on. I’d suspect that there will be multiple hands. Progressives won’t quit (indeed, can’t quit) until some group or groups slap them down. Who that group or groups will be and what comes next is anyone’s guess, but it surely won’t be 1985 America.

What comes next? The only thing I know is this level of multiracialness and diversity cannot go on without continual conflict and hostility. Even if the Woke are successful in subjugating Whites, there will still be conflicts between Jews and blacks, Mexicans and blacks, Mexicans and Asians, blacks and gays, gays and Muslims, every combination you can think of. There’s no harmonious end to the Wokeness. Only major slapdowns can end it.

The West is a matriarchy of feral female id. The back of the hand needs to be more than just the hand: all of our backs.

I think that you’re right. We don’t need to give these crazies the back of the hand. It’s not our country anymore. Why go through the effort.

Instead of giving them the back of the hand, we show them our backs. Form our own communities. But within those communities, we must always remember how we were destroyed before.

The future is building something better for those boys right now. One young white man at a time. The W question will solve itself once our boys have a home again. We are builders. Why would this time around require anything else? Directing our energy to leading our families, raising durable children, and coalescing in like communities is the momentum-generating change required. Discounting the current generation of young boys (can’t call them men) looking for love is the right move. The one’s worth saving will show themselves if we are leading by example.

My fear is that thinking this woke insanity will eventually stop may be falling in the trap of trying to understand it with rational thought. There are now very woke generations who have only known this insanity albeit a milder form until Obama’s second term. The insanity may just switch between hysterias when one, like what happened with pound me too, gets overplayed

– From my Christian persepctive, your analysis is correct and supports the understanding that this was Not a human led coup with some socio-political goal; but one that serves demonic interests. The agenda is ultimately negative – against everything Good, in rotation. Thus policies are not directed at stable consolidation of power; but at *universal* division, fear, resentment and finally despair. The ideal is for each specific person to become an isolated mass of sin – pridefully determined to reject the always-available (and instantaneously effective) option of repenting, loving God and following Jesus.

I like the fact that all these people who “have at least two things going wrong with them” are so out and in the open now.

It’s making it so much easier to fill in the list – and it will make it a LOT easier to gather them up later. Way back in the old days if you were looking to clean house – you probably had to rely on testimony from friends and neighbors to figure out who went on the “list” – these days they just raise their hands and yell “Pick me – pick me!!”.

This fits with the whole Cargo Cult theme with a massive dose of substitution economics added in. Repeat the rituals, but lacking the actual lynchings, Jim Crow, hickory shampoos etc of the bygone age, the Left keeps reaching further down the quality chain for substitutes. If racism were food, we’re at the point of substituting road killed opossum for Wagyu beef.

I think a case can be made that America’s addiction to cheap labor has proven to be it’s ultimate undoing.
Slavery, open borders, illegals from Latin America, H-1Bs, and moving factories to China all go back to cheap labor.

Andrew Sullivan has been an irrelevant fool for a while. He was dethroned as chief smart fag by the likes of Peter Thiel and Douglas Murray. Even Milo’s flamboyance was excused by his alleged bona fides as a smart fag; but America won’t take a fag seriously unless he’s subdued about what he gets up to in the bedroom. That subtlety is precisely what enrages feminists and trannies. They demand that degeneracy be celebrated, not merely tolerated. A whole lot of people just need to STFU. Our problem isn’t the loss of free speech; it’s the loss of free association.

I still think there is an intelligence behind this, and that you may be discounting (or not considering) that all these aggrieved victims being whipped into a frenzy on the streets and elsewhere are nothing but cannon fodder to that intelligence, to be used and discarded as soon as their utility is exhausted. Gay men are no longer all that controversial or divisive. Hence their utility is at exhausted and they are ditched over the side.

Well here’s my theory

It’s a rhetorical question, but you know the expression “a face only a mother can love” ?

Well, stands to reason then, that the more ugly babies out there the more love in the world. And I would even modify that to include all babies.

All around us is an utter absence of love. The hatred is palpable and zapping all around us like tasers.

So my theory is that this hatred is a byproduct of feminism and modern society and the aversion to motherhood.
