Gradually And Then Suddenly

The Brits are set to have an election on July 4th, ironically enough, and everyone expects it to be a terrible result for the ruling party. The Tories have been in power for a long time and have managed to break every promise they made when they gained power and make everything worse that they promised to improve. On top of that they have gone through a series of ridiculous people as Prime Minister. The current person in the job is an Indian little person who has never run for office.

The reason the Conservatives called what the Brits call “snap elections”, is the people who actually run Britain are worried about new right-wing parties. Snap elections are those called on short notice in some parliamentary systems. The logic behind it is that the ruling party can more easily rig an election when they are out of favor by limiting the time for the opposition to mount a campaign. Democracy depends on institutional skullduggery to maintain its legitimacy.

According to current polling, which is as fraudulent as everything else in the West these days, the Conservatives are at 21%, which is their lowest rating ever. This is why there is a campaign called Zero Seats. The argument is that the only way to break the corrupt system is to eliminate one of the two main parties. Since the Tories are as popular as rectal cancer, they are the best target. While unlikely, it is possible to see a scenario in which they become a fringe party.

It is not all bad news for the Conservatives. Their historic dance partner, Labour, is polling at just 41%, which is terrible given the status of the Tories. Like America, the game of see-saw the parties play says that when one face of the ruling class is unpopular, the other face is popular. Right now, in the UK, both faces of the ruling class are unpopular, which is why they forced snap elections. No respectable person wants to see a new party rise up and challenge the system.

Just in case, the regime has brought Nigel Farage back from America where he was committed to stumping for Donald Trump. Farage is now the leader of the Reform Party, which is the heir to the Brexit Party. He created that after he successfully led the winning side in the Brexit referendum. The party was created to force the regime to follow through on the referendum, which they did not do. It is one of the reasons UK politics are such a mess now.

The only reason any of this matters is it is a good way to see how the system adjusts to defend itself from public discontent. The British regime is just the mini-me of the American regime, so it is a microcosm of what happens in America. The scale is smaller, and the system is slightly different, but we see all the same tricks used by the regime to make sure it is always heads they win and tails you lose. One of those tricks is to co-opt discontent into an acceptably pointless channel.

You can see how it works in the program the Reform Party posted on Twitter, now stupidly called X, the other day. They put immigration at the top because this is one of the top issues that is rustling the voters. To the untrained eye it all looks good, but to the trained eye the fraud is quite clear. The point of their program is to not question the moral claims behind immigration, but to put a fence around that morality so the question is how to best manage mass immigration.

Look at the first point. “Freeze non-essential Immigration.” The only reason to have the term “non-essential Immigration” is if you have “essential Immigration”, which is a moral claim held by the people Farage claims to oppose. Who decided that any immigration is essential and essential to whom? Was it the bankers who actually run the country or was it the managerial elite who adopted it as a luxury belief? Who decides what is and what is not essential about immigration?

Here is another example. “All asylum seekers that arrive illegally from safe countries will be processed rapidly, offshore if necessary.” Logically, the UK should never receive any asylum seekers as by law and logic, asylum seekers go to the nearest safe country for temporary refuge while the home country is in turmoil. The UK is a set of islands bordered by countries that are stable “democracies” so there can never be a case where anyone seeks asylum in the UK.

The point of this weaselly language is two-fold. One is it is the natural obsequiousness that infests all Western right-wing parties. They have the slave mentality, which means they are always bowing and scraping before the people they pretend to oppose with regards to the moral claims of the ruling elite. The other reason is it tend to work as people just see the headlines and never think about the qualifiers. Owning the libs is a universal concept in Western democracies.

Of course, putting an entertaining clown like Farage up as the front man is a great way to distract from this reality. People are mad and lack the sophistication to understand the issues in detail, so Farage provides a vent for their frustration by pretending to be on their side, when in reality he fully supports the moral framework that is the root cause of their frustration. Farage and his Reform Party are what James Carville once called “boob bit for the bubbas.”

The genius of the trick is it will work. Reform is now polling within a few points of the Tories at 16% in the government polls. In other polls they are in a statistical dead heat with the Tories. If they overtake them, then the people angry at the system will claim victory for having knocked out the Tories. Meanwhile, gangs of Muslims are chasing their daughters through the streets. If Reform flops, then they can focus their energy on being angry at Labour for a few years.

For Americans, this should sound familiar. The usual suspects co-opted the Tea Party to become a subsidiary of the Republican Party. What could have been a threat to the system was quickly neutralized. The current populist groundswell has been slowly co-opted by oleaginous grifters who run around wearing red caps and talking about Trump like he is Orange Jesus. Meanwhile, Trump’s platform is now no different from what Jeb Bush was offering in 2016.

This may sound black-pilling and depressing, but the white pill in what is happening with populist parties all around the West is they are gnawing away at the legitimacy of the system by forcing these reactions. The dullards in the UK fall for Farage, but there are lots of people who have gotten wise to this stuff by watching him work. In the U.S., the Trump phenomenon has opened the eyes of many to the reality of the system, simply by seeing the system react to Trump.

In other words, the process by which a system loses its legitimacy is through its various mutations to defend itself from challenges. The number of people wondering if the system should be saved is a measurable number now, thanks to the struggle the system has undergone to defend against even mild reform. The same is true all over as people increasingly notice the unwillingness of the system to give an inch on critical issues like immigration and culture.

The old line from Hemingway about bankruptcy being gradually then suddenly applies to all complex systems. Failed populist uprisings and Potemkin opposition movements are the gradually portion of the show. With every failure to get even a tiny concession from the system, the system loses legitimacy. At some point, and no one ever knows when it will happen, the suddenly part of the show begins. In order to get there, you have to work through the gradually part first.

I know little about Juneteenth so maybe I’m way off base here, but isn’t it called “Juneteenth” because the blacks couldn’t remember when emancipation was, so dey wuz like, “Yeah, uh, June something-teenth.” It’s a holiday based on obliviousness?

As the original event occurred in Galveston, it had been a localized Texas day off for some time. No one else cared except in the history-revisionist mind of Kamala “Fweedom” Harris, the Pajeet Princess. If you recall the mood of the day, it was cynically ushered in under cover of night as an emergency tactic….“We’ll give you a holiday…..just please stop burning our cities down!” The solemn day, like every other day, is marked by Purple Drank, a twerkfest, and celebratory gunfire.

Happy Juneteenth, everyone. This is truly a date everyone on this forum can celebrate.

Julius Rosenberg (May 12, 1918 – June 19, 1953) and Ethel Rosenberg (née Greenglass; September 28, 1915 – June 19, 1953) were an American married couple who were convicted of spying for the Soviet Union, including providing top-secret information about American radarsonarjet propulsion engines, and nuclear weapon designs. Convicted of espionage in 1951, they were executed by the federal government of the United States in 1953 at Sing Sing in Ossining, New York

The real reason they’re mad at Uncle Dolphie is because the puppet emperor, Stalin, was poised to conquer all of Europe.

Uncle Dolphie’s rushed Barbarossa panic attack foiled the launch of Stalin’s mass blitzkreig.

His alliance with the socialist dictator FDR’s New Deal regime, the genocidal Commonwealth imperialist Churchill, and the Chinese puppet Mao would’ve created the final victory, the Conquest of the Aryan sphere, and the creation of the Global Jewish Empire.

MacGregor got over his skis early on re: his fatalism about Ukraine, predicting its rapid surrender.

But that doesn’t invalidate his broader geopolitical analysis, which is pretty consistent with the dissident right worldview. I doubt he’s “one of us” but I put him in the Good Guy Camp.

I will vote this November, for local issues like Sherriff and school board, since they haven’t fortified these for “democracy” yet (soon to come after a few elections where the correct choice isn’t made by the dirt people), but the rest of my ballot will remain blank, although I suspect that all blank ballot choices are marked “D” by the machines.… Read more »

He successfully negotiated quite a few bilateral peace treaties between Israel and Arab countries. When asked why nobody recognized his accomplishments advancing peace, he gave the best f.u. response: “Peace is the prize.”

Meaning, he didn’t give a shit about medals if there were no wars.

History is not on your side. Trump was collapsing the power of the Israeli lobby by taking away their issues by solving problems peacefully.

Those folks on the fence have no ability to change government policy. The regime does not care what they think. Never did. The situation at the border is not the result of anyone’s vote or voice.

When I was in grad school (1996-2000) I frequently wrote LTE’s to a major midwestern newspaper, and, surprisingly enough given the rightwing views they contained, the paper published most of them. If I was in my old uni’s grad school today and such letters got published, I would be expelled from the university, and I am not joking.

The Parti Reconquête is the real thing. Did quite well in the recent elections and they have withdrawn from the approaching races where they would take votes from nationalist candidates, which is almost unheard of, but in an email earlier this week, he made it clear that he and Reconquête are putting France ahead of party.

“In a speech at Turning Point USA’s Detroit conference, Bannon bashed the legal cases against the former president and predicted, with certainty, that Trump will be sentenced to years in prison on July 11.

“They’ve turned the legal system. They’ve turned the legal system, whether it’s bankruptcy, whether it is taking away somebody’s law license, whether it’s de-banking, and they have the greatest president this nation’s had since Abraham Lincoln, … .”

The young policeman murdered in Mannheim was trying to arrest a nationalist demonstrator–a German–(there were crowds in the streets), and the Muslim with the knife slashed and stabbed the cop, presumably just because he could. Point is … the cop was trying to suppress a German nationalist when he got stabbed and slashed by the New German. He died later in the hospital.

There’s a dynamic similar to the one described the Z-man in the UK here in France. The National Rally party,, which is demonized as being “extreme right,” is really a slightly left of center party that has a platform of curbing immigration somewhat, but not really eliminating it. And mentioning remigration is like preaching heresy in the Vatican. France may end up with a majority in the National Assembly of extreme left parties, since the “right” is dividing and engaging in fratricide.
