Enjoy Your Protests: It’s Going to Get Awkward Soon Reply

Liberal and left opinion is starting to throw Antifa under the bus as reelection time approaches next year.

I feel sorry for leftists.

I realize many of my readers are leftists.  I have to make a distinction here, because “Democrat” and “leftist” are not synonymous terms, as the whole flap over the Rizzo statue makes obvious to people now.

There’s a lot of them in Philadelphia and they pretty-much signal off each other like cattle moo-ing their way across a pasture.  Few of you realize what is coming, but I already see the winds blowing.   You will feel that wind turn gale force as the months go by.

The people I’m feeling sorry for are you guys, gals–and other–who have been out marching in circles around City Hall hoping Trump would give a shit about your Magic Marker signs.   Standing next to you in those crowds were miscreant humanities students and flunkies otherwise known as AntiFa and Black Bloc.  Unfortunately for you, even though you didn’t don AntiFa garb you are going to be lumped in with them; because you’ve been winking and nodding at them and quietly accepting the normalization of extra-judicial unconstitutional violence as if it were protected speech.

That is soon going to come to an end and it’s not because of Charlottesville.  Sorry, that’s how it’s going to be spun.  Own it.  The backspin has already started:

Berkeley Mayor: We Should Classify Antifa ‘As A Gang’ Reply

Just as the Trump administration has realized that it’s Alt-Right supporters are a liability, and has subsequently purged its Alt-Lite figures like Steven Bannon and Sebastian Gorka, so has the left-wing of the political class apparently has begun to regard to the Antifa as a liability and call for a purge. Already, Yvette Felarca has been arrested. More state repression against the Antifa is likely to come.

BERKELEY (CBS SF) — Mayor of Berkeley Jesse Arreguin on Monday said it is time to confront the violent extremism on the left by treating black-clad Antifa protesters as a gang.

A large number of masked Antifa activists were seen jumping the barriers at a largely peaceful demonstration in Berkeley’s Martin Luther King Civic Center Park on Sunday.

Some began attacking Trump supporters at the rally.

Threats of political violence rise in polarized Trump era Reply

Threats of political violence rise in polarized Trump era

Escalating tensions this summer have stepped up fears about political violence.

Law enforcement officials, college campuses and cities around the country are bracing for a new wave of alt-right rallies in the weeks and months to come, with parties on both sides of the debate over Confederate statues and monuments prepared for standoffs.

At the center of it all is President Trump, whose heated rhetoric has angered opponents while firing up his supporters, magnifying the sense that the political divide in the country is growing wider.

“When there seems to be no room for compromise and no appetite for listening to the other side, the potential for violence is higher,” said Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center. “And the Confederate monuments are the obvious flashpoint.”

Even before the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., this month, which left one woman dead and 19 others injured after a car mowed down a group of counterprotesters, there was already heightened concern over the threat of violence amid a hyper-charged political environment in the country.

A lone gunman shot up a baseball field earlier this summer where Republican members and staffers were practicing for a charity game, leaving House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) in critical condition.

And the first half of this year saw an alarming uptick in death threats against lawmakers, with Capitol Police investigating more threats in the first half of 2017 than all of last year. Many lawmakers have refused to hold town halls this year, claiming they feel it is too dangerous.

The increasing threats come after one of the most divisive presidential campaigns in modern U.S. history. Tempers on both sides ran high during the 2016 cycle, with punches being thrown at some campaign events.

But even after taking office, Trump has generally stuck to the same street-fighting style that energized his base and helped propel him to victory.

“He himself is kind of more inflammatory, and he tends to react to things in this more aggressive manner. That can be good for a campaign and welcome in a primary, but it’s complicated for trying to build unity,” said Brandon Rottinghaus, a political science professo

See the facts about the Charlottesville riot. You decide what they mean. 1

An interesting discussion of Charlottesville from a relatively neutral perspective. The analysis of this blogger is fairly similar to my own. Charlottesville is not an issue in which I have a horse in the race. I see the situation as one where the state simply lost control, whether deliberately or through incompetence, of a situation where two groups of statists-in-waiting (both of whom would probably create an even worse state than the one we have now) were engaged in low level fourth generation warfare conflict. I am interested in simply trying to figure out exactly what happened. My commentary on the incident thus far has been criticized by both the Left and Right for allegedly slighting their own side, which leads me to the conclusion that I am probably getting a lot of things right.

Summary: The riot at Charlottesville’s “Unite the Right” event is trivial by historical standards. But it is rich with insights into modern America. This street fighting, like that of the Weimar Republic, might be a milestone on America’s path to an ugly future. Here are the facts about what happened, fairly showing both sides in action. You decide their significance. At the end you will see my proposed solution.

Augustus Invictus: Interview with Rachel Janik of the SPLC 10

An interesting Right vs. Left “interview” that is closer to being a debate.

I tend to view political ideologies in the same way that I view religions in the sense that I don’t think any of them are “true.” Instead, these are collections of myths and archetypes that people use to order their own psyche, and as common bonds with which to form community with others.

I would approach political conflict in a way that was fairly similar to that of Hobbes, who was concerned about the constant warfare between rival religious sects and royal dynasties during his own time. He didn’t really believe any of these had “truth” on their side, but simply that they were contending interests struggling for power. We have a very similar situation today where various ideologies, cultural and ethnic groups, economic interests, and perspectives on contentious issues are struggling for power in a similar way, leading to the various conflicts we see in our own society. Like Hobbes before me, I really don’t care who is “right” in most of these conflicts, and doubt that anyone has “truth” (as opposed to self-interest) on their side. The Wikipedia entry on the “Left-Right political spectrum” defines the various ideological divisions in this way:

Generally, the left wing is characterized by an emphasis on “ideas such as equality, fraternity, rights, progress, reform, and internationalism,” while the right wing is characterized by an emphasis on “notions such as authority, hierarchy, order, duty, tradition, reaction and nationalism.”

Political scientists and other analysts regard the Left as including anarchists,communists, socialists and social democrats, left-libertarians, progressives, and social liberals.Movements for racial equality are also usually linked with left-wing organizations. Trade unionism is also associated with the left.

Charlottesville Car Attack: Full Livestream Reply

This footage was broadcast by News2Share’s Ford Fischer live.

Who Do Americans Blame for the Violence in Charlottesville? 4

What I find most interesting about this poll is that despite the common far left claims that Republicans are merely fascists and Nazis under another name, these results show that a super-majority of Republicans either blamed both sides (64%)or the far right (18%) for the melee, indicating that actual sympathy for the far right among Republicans or mainstream conservatives is actually very minimal.

By Gwynn Guilford

Quartz

Which side—the white nationalists or the counter-protesters—bears greater responsibility for the Charlottesville violence, which directly resulted in the death of a 32-year-old counter-protester? It should be a factual question. And also a moral one, considering that the demonstrators had gathered in the spirit of a homegrown terror group that lynched thousands of blacks and a foreign one that murdered around 6 million Jews.

Yet in the America of the moment, the question is a political one.

Only 18% of Republican respondents blame the white-nationalist groups for the bulk of the Charlottesville violence, according to a SurveyMonkey poll with 2,181 participants, via Axios. (Update: Note that this was not a scientific poll—here is the methodology—and may not be representative of the view of all Americans.) Some 64% think both sides share responsibility equally. Perhaps more alarmingly, only 46% of all the respondents put the blame on the white nationalists, while four in 10 condemn both sides equally.

On Charlottesville: A Conversation with Keith Preston Reply

My interview with Millennial Transmissions.

More than any other recent conflict in current affairs that I can recall, the Unite the Right rally and subsequent clash in Charlottesville have been immensely difficult to find objective, unbiased accounts and explanations of. The mainstream media have proven to be intent on sensationalising and stupefying the incident, whilst reports on the left and right have offered almost nothing but narrow-sighted, ideological spins on the events that took place.

I reached out to Keith Preston to find out his take on the conflict, having been impressed by his own article ‘Some Initial Thoughts on Charlottesville.’ A former instructor of sociology at John Tyler Community College, Keith holds a B.A in Religious Studies and an M.A in History, with additional graduate studies in Sociology and Criminology, and is a former regional delegate for the Industrial Workers of the World. As the anarcho-pluralist and pan-secessionist mastermind behind the Attack the System blog and podcast, and author of multiple books on anarchist and anti-statist matters, I knew that with his encyclopedic knowledge of cross-spectrum political currents and organisations and his multidisciplinary approach to complicated issues that he could be relied upon to give a well-rounded, non-partisan analysis of the events that took place on that fateful weekend (or at least as solid an account as possible considering the nebulous, conflicting reports available so far).

Neocons Are Upset With Me 3

This is an important piece by Paul Gottfried which points out that the fragmentation that is growing the United States is not primarily about race, something that both leftists and white nationalists are constantly missing. Every bit of evidence shows that the political and class divides are wider than the racial divides. The Red/Blue war is primarily, though not exclusively, an “intra-white” war, at least in terms of the leadership of both sides. While a “majority of minorities” tend to side with the Blue Team, and growing “minority of minorities” is siding with the Red Team. What Dr. Gottfried describes in the following paragraph is what the future of the Left/Right divide will look like, albeit in an even more radicalized form.

The most lunatic Cultural Marxists I’ve encountered are Aryan-looking Germans and Swedes, who right now are running their countries, into the ground. I haven’t noticed any black people in Europe pushing radical lifestyle agendas or demanding that Europeans open their borders to more Muslim migrants. For the last thirty years I have been battling PC fanatics, including the ones in conservatism, inc.; and these zealots have been predominantly white. Although I wouldn’t deny that the PC Left has tried to “empower” minorities for revolutionary or political transformational uses, the roles played by these minorities have been secondary. The major war for civilization has gone on among whites.

I am, moreover, delighted that some black commentators are willing to attack black race hustlers with the appropriate contempt. It was black conservative Larry Elders who had the spunk to say what I couldn’t imagine Stephen Hayes, Bret Baier, or Bernie Goldberg ever allowing himself to utter. Elders called Al Sharpton a bigoted thug who managed to start a race war in Brooklyn before becoming Obama’s gray eminence. And he described the raving California Congresswoman Maxine Waters as a “delusional poverty pimp.” Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County was also one of the first interviewees whom I heard on TV openly condemning both sides for the Charlottesville riot. In the war for civilization at least a minority of blacks has been vocally and persistently on the conservative side. Am I supposed to reject such warriors in favor of white leftists who happen to have the approved skin color? I shall happily make common cause with decent people of all races to battle the Cultural Marxist totalitarians, who are taking power in just about every so-called liberal democracy.

Charlottesville Was a Massive 4GW Failure Reply

“Failure” doesn’t even begin to describe it. I would argue that Charlottesville was the end of the Alt-Right’s opportunity to be anything other than a fringe subculture. In 4GW, the propaganda wars are the most important of wall, and the Alt-Right essentially suffered a Hiroshima attack in Charlottesville. At this point, Richard Spencer is simply the “new David Duke,” Matt Heimbach is merely the “new Tom Metzger,” and the Alt-Right generally are now the “new skinheads,” or at best the SJWs and Antifa of the Right. The Alt-Right may not have wanted it to turn out this way, but that’s how it is.  The more radical people on the Alt-Right will remain on the fringes from here on, and the more moderate people will be absorbed by the system as a kind of “racial conservatives” who will play a role similar to the religious right in terms of their relationship to mainstream conservatism.

Traditional Right

’m sure that a lot of folks in the alt-Right, of whatever stripe, are feeling pretty black-pilled right at this moment. As well they should, because the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville was a disaster.  There’s no way to get around that. Don’t take what I’m about to say in the post below as “punching right”. Rather, understand it as me giving some well-meaning, and I believe much needed, counsel.

What everyone who is interested in this needs to understand is that the reason the Unite the Right (UTR) rally was a failure was because it completely neglected to take into account 4GW (Fourth-Generation Warfare) principles which can very easily be applied to civilian situations remaining at conflict levels below outright armed conflict.  In fact the leadership at UTR and during the subsequent chain of events once the rally got started broke just about every rule of 4GW that could have been broken.

My advice for any serious alt-Righter of any stripe who wishes to avoid future debacles like UTR would be to first, firstFIRST read Victoria by William Lind, and then familiarize yourself with Lind’s other materials on this subject.  If you haven’t done this yet, then stop what you’re doing, alt-Right involvement-wise.  You’re only going to hurt, not help your cause.

However in the meantime until you can do this, I’ll provide a few pointers as overview.

The White Right Rises Reply

My prediction is that in the not so distant future there will no longer be a distinctive “American” national identity other than pop culture, fast food, and speaking English with a North American accent. I’m quite sure that present efforts to remove monuments to figures like the Confederate leaders and Christopher Columbus will be followed by calls to eliminate monuments to figures like Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln. The Right is correct when they express concern about this, and the far Left will sometimes state explicit intentions of these kinds. I always predicted that as demographic change continued to take place and the general culture moved leftward, white nationalism would, for better or worse, grow as a  movement as well.

I would predict that even the Fourth of July will eventually be attacked as a holiday celebrating white male slaveholders. While the historian in me laments such occurrences, these can actually help to serve the anarchist cause by delegitimizing the existing state. Eventually, there will simply be no “America” at all even if the government continues to exist as an instrument of rule. Instead, the USA will simply be an agglomeration of corporations, arms merchants, bankers, and politicians ruling over a society that is fractured into cultural, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic tribes seeking a greater share of the spoils. Such a society would barely cohere as a nation, and would probably more closely resemble present day India. This could only serve to weaken the existing state, but what comes next matters, and that’s why anarchists need to do a much better job than at present in terms of growing their own movements.

By William S. Lind

Traditional Right

One reason Donald Trump won last year’s election was that he was widely perceived as the white candidate.  This marked something more important than his election: the rise of white political consciousness.  As other racial and ethnic groups have done for some time (“La Raza” means “The Race”), whites are increasingly defining themselves by race rather than class.  Like other groups, they perceive they have group interests as whites and they are willing to work and vote for those interests.  This is entirely legitimate.

How Will the State Respond to Growing Antifa/Alt-Right Violence? 2

By Keith Preston

The State exists for the purpose of maintaining a monopoly over the legitimate use of violence within a particular geographical territory in order to more effectively control resources, exploit subjects, protect an artificially privileged ruling class, and expand its own power both internally and externally. The State does this while maintaining a self-legitimating ideological superstructure, and buying the loyalty of the middle class by suppressing the lower/underclass. The State is what you would get if the Mafia managed to eliminate all of its competitors, including the State itself, and consequently become a state of its own.

At times, the State will seek to maintain total control over every aspect of social life (e.g. the totalitarian regimes of the 20th century, present day North Korea or Islamist regimes like ISIS, the Taliban, and Saudi Arabia, or Israel’s conduct in the occupied territories). However, most modern states allow for a fairly robust civil society to exist that may actually have the effect of affording the average person a fair amount of comfort. States of these kinds, so-called “liberal democracies,” may even encourage intense political debate within certain narrow parameters (or even fairly broad parameters). Some states will allow or even encourage a fair amount crime and disorder in order to legitimize the expansion of state power to an even greater degree (what the late paleconservative writer Samuel Francis called “anarcho-tyranny’‘). For example, isn’t it interesting that in spite of the massive police and prison systems that now exist in the United States, one third of all murders go unsolved?

However, no state can allow disorder to spiral too far out of control, or it will lose its legitimacy in the process. A state of this kind is a protection racket that continues to engage in extortion and exploitation, but can no longer offer actual protection. Hence, states tend to be very sensitive to perceived threats to their own legitimacy. At present, the violence that is taking place between the Antifa, Alt-Right, and their various allies certainly poses no threat to the state. America in 2017 is light years away from Weimar Germany in 1932. But the important question involves the issue of to what degree the State will continue allow such violence to persist, if indeed it does persist, which it may not. That remains to be seen.
