Interesting Article Over at the Z-Man, “The Long Road”

The folks on the dissident right are known for making the statement that “we aren’t going to vote our way out of this.”  For that reason, it’s interesting to see the Z-Man discussing the importance of tactical flexibility with respect to political opportunities.

The gist of it is that even if you don’t think that political reform can solve all our problems it doesn’t make sense to ignore the advantages that can be obtained at the ballot box.

And this is a good sign.  A lot of the time, the gloom and doom and apocalyptic language coming from the fringe is unhelpful and self-defeating.  President Trump has actually made some good progress (against unbelievable headwind) in judicial appointments, business and trade policies, reining in the bureaucrats and declawing the Justice Department.

While the question of whether restoring the values of the Old America is possible under our present system is still in doubt, it doesn’t seem to me to be the time to give up.  Especially since we’ve actually had some measure of success at the ballot box recently.

President Trump Announces the Beginning of Deportation of Illegal Aliens in the US

Let’s hope this is much more than just campaign rhetoric or a token effort.

It would certainly help his standing with his base.  I know it would encourage me.  Fingers crossed.

Building the Underground

Last week I read Angelo Codevilla’s essay “Conservative Resistance” in American Greatness.  His thesis was that since the Leftists have begun selectively to ignore federal law (e.g., marijuana illegality) that it has come to the point where Red States will start ignoring social policy laws that they disagree with (e.g., abortion, homosexuality).

Whether things will actually progress very far this way anytime soon remains to be seen but I realized that we already live essentially in two different worlds.  The conflict over the last sixty years has been over which world will rule the other.  And essentially it is not a matter of agreeing on a common set of rules that we can reach a compromise on.  We are being systematically undermined in all areas of the most important aspects of life.  The Left’s social projects have absolutely nothing to do with freedom.  They are efforts to destroy the traditional family as the means to eradicate the people they cannot control.

Looking at things from that point of view it seems plain to me that until we can reassert control over the agencies of the government that are infringing on our freedoms of speech and religion, we must in some ways look upon ourselves as people living under a foreign power.  We live in occupied territory.  This is similar to how the people in Eastern Europe endured the Soviet occupation.

The Soviet occupation controlled every facet of civic life with an unbreakable grip based on the military strength of the Russian army.  But the people lived a dual life and their inner life expressed the truth of what they actually believed as opposed to the outer rituals that the state forced them to observe.  So, whereas Poland was officially a communist state with atheism as the official position, the Poles clung desperately to their Catholic faith.

Not to be dramatic about this but there is a way for us to live a similar inner life.  We will have to foster a separate culture and society from the one we live in.  We will need to have our own fiction and philosophy, our own music and movies.  We will need to communicate together over our own channels, websites and networks.  And someday we may need to invest our money in our own banks and businesses.  We’re actually luckier than the Poles and the Czechs.  Theoretically we still live in a free country.  If we are careful and patient, we can make a lot of progress without depending on some kind of upheaval to get what we want.  But it will require slow methodical effort by large numbers of like-minded people to lay the kind of foundation needed to bypass the converged infrastructure currently surrounding every facet of our lives; schools, social networking sites, businesses, federal bureaucracies and even churches and non-profit organizations.

All these things are possible and relatively easy to understand.  The hard thing to do is how to pass along this information to the children today.  If you homeschool your children then this simplifies matters enormously.  But if your kids are in the public (or private) schools then it will be a struggle.  They are saturated by the propaganda that the culture and its representatives broadcast at them continuously.  It’s like a fish in poisoned water it can’t escape the effect.  To tell them the truth will seem to them like madness.  It will fly in the face of everything that is drummed into their heads twenty-four/seven.  But even here there are ways to use the natural advantage of the truth to simplify the effort.  When a child tells you about global warming have facts on your side.  Point to statements by alarmists like Al Gore about how the polar ice caps would be completely melted by 2017 and then show a photo of the Arctic today.  This will be understandable to the child.  Then it would be useful to explain that not everything that is taught in school or on television is true.  You can then introduce the concept of political bias and how this can cause people to lie about objectively true things for the sake of gaining political power.  It will also be necessary to explain how arguing to the authorities about their lies will only get the child punished.  It will have to be explained that for the sake of keeping appearances the truth won’t be mentioned.  But introduction into the inner world of those who know will be an interesting phenomenon for him and allow a space where you can talk to the young without confusing them.  Another good way to break them out of the propaganda mode is to give them books and movies from the earlier times before the worst of the madness evolved.  Books and movies that showcase the qualities and behaviors of Western civilization and the normal occupations of men and women before the present confusion was inflicted on society will be interesting and attractive to their minds.

For an American having to do this seems Kafkaesque.  And probably that is the apt word.  Modern American life with its continuously weirder new outrages and never-ending assaults on the wholesome and sane appears like some surreal nightmare from which we never awake.  But teach them we must.  The memes and other tactics that the dissident and alt-right employ are meant to show the normies out there, the absurdity and illogic of the Left’s signature positions.  This we have to incorporate into our dealings with our children and grandchildren.  It is hoped that we can one day recover control of the culture and return it to normal.  And with President Trump some of that is actually happening.  But I know it’s much too soon to even think we can go back to business as usual.  We are behind enemy lines and will be so for the foreseeable future.  We will therefore have to act accordingly.

16JUN2019 – Happy Father’s Day to All the Readers Out There

If you are a father, then force your family to give you just a few hours off today to do something fun, even that’s just catching up on sleep.  If you have a father that did his job and he’s still around call him up and wish him a nice day and if he’s gone take a minute to think of the best memories you have of him and the things he did for you.

Every man who had a father who sacrificed for him and tried to raise him right owes it to any children he has to pay forward what he received before.

At least, that’s how it seems to me now.

Here’s a bonus quote for the day.

When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.

Mark Twain

15JUN2019 – OCF Update

Apologies for the quiet today.  I was on a trip and got home later than I thought I would.  I’ll catch up tomorrow.  Shatner-Khan is in disarray.  Attendance has plummeted due to outside forces, George Takei perhaps.  I’ll have to salvage it using, in Deadpool’s words, maximum effort.  I haven’t reviewed the news today, so who knows what fresh horror awaits me.  Stay tuned

Terf Battles

This is the latest in a string of posts I’ve seen where radical feminists decry the unfairness of trans-women and their allies calling them TERFs.  That is an acronym for Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists.  Apparently the radical feminists are outraged that men in sundresses are invading their bathrooms, sports teams and even trying to hook up with them.  Since essentially all radical feminists are lesbians this last item is the ultimate inversion of sexual confusion.  Imagine a lesbian being guilted into having sex with a “woman” who has a penis.  Now that is irony.

Aside from the weapons grade schadenfreude evoked by reading the outrage of the feminist writing this screed I was struck by the poetic justice involved.  The radical feminists have for years railed against the idea that men and women were inherently different.  Now, when some men use that principle to join women on their side of the male/female divide the feminists are invoking biology to repel the invaders.

And now instead of standing on the side of the woke in their battle against the evil Patriarchy they are being bombarded with abuse by trannies and Antifa and various other of their fellow misfits who threaten them with TERF punching or worse.  Apparently PUNCH TERFs is a meme that has become very widespread and has actually occurred in real life.

And here is where the irony becomes razor sharp.  The authoress says, “On my way out of Edinburgh University last week, where I’d just delivered a speech on how feminists should resist male violence, I was attacked by a shrieking “transgender person” (to cite the term used in a Scotsman headline). Had it not been for the three burly security guards surrounding me, I would have been punched.”

So here is this woman who has made a career declaring men obsolete and declaring women the equal of men in every way, hiding behind a phalanx of “burly” men to escape a beating by another denier of sexual reality.   It’s too rich.

After reading her entire article I found it amazing that she somehow concludes that the bullying of radical feminists by trans-normalizers  is the fault of the Patriarchy!  So, apparently, Stanley Kowalski has put down his beer bottle and bowling ball and after belting Stella and Blanche around he puts on a little black dress and heels and goes after Ms. Bindel for heresy against the trannies.  It’s so thick, you can cut it with a knife.

Afterwards I looked at the comments section and you can only imagine.  Guys from our side were there laughing their butts off.  The lesbians and the trannies were there yelling at and past each other.  It was a three ring circus.

So what’s the moral of this story?  Well I’ve always heard that when your enemy is digging himself into a hole you lend him a bigger shovel.  My instinct says sell ammunition to both sides.  Do everything possible to keep the pot boiling.  There’s nothing like an Antifa sucker punch to begin a life long grudge against your ideological adversary.

Lately the lesbians have been openly talking about bolting from the LGBTQ alphabet soup.   Then I guess we’d have to adapt to the GBTQ everywhere.  I don’t know.  It sounds like the call letters of some kind of public television channel.

Well, anyway, if nothing else, the trannies rampaging through girls’ and women’s sports is opening the eyes of mothers and daughters all over America and should produce a bumper crop of biological realists in the next few years.

14JUN2019 – American Greatness Post of the Day – A Conservative Resistance? By Angelo Codevilla

Talking ’bout revolution!

https://amgreatness.com/2019/06/13/a-conservative-resistance/

Okay!  Codevilla is openly considering whether the red states should start emulating the blue states.  If the blue states openly defy drug laws then what if the red states defy the laws they disagree with; abortion, homosexuality, pornography, etc.  Of course you see how this goes downhill fast.  The next round on their side would be the 1st and 2nd amendments.  Codevilla is fast approaching the dissident right’s positions, if not from a philosophical perspective then at least from a tactical and practical perspective.

Well, if that went forward, things would definitely accelerate and I might have to move sooner than I expected.  Ahhh, I’m tired of snow anyway.

Boris Johnson Now the Heavy Favorite for Next UK PM

Boris came out of the first round of internal voting way ahead of all the other candidates.  His total was actually more than the totals of the next three highest candidates combined (114 vs 43, 37, 27).  The next round may make it all but inevitable that after 22JUL2019 when the voting finishes he will be selected to be the next PM.

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-48624579

Now that doesn’t mean that Brexit is guaranteed.  The Remainers are the British version of the Republican Globalists who would rather see the US middle class starve than threaten their cozy relationship with Davros.

But it will be a good first step.

13JUN2019 – American Greatness Post of the Day – Finding America at a Back-Roads Gas Station by Salena Zito

Salena Zito always has a good read.  This one is a feel good account of breaking down in small town America.  Nothing profound but it might brighten your morning or remind you of a similar moment.

Looking for an Alternative to Drudge? Whatfinger News!

In the last few years Drudge has become an unpleasant and messy site to visit.  They are decidedly anti-Trump and loaded up with leftist clap-trap.

I found WhatFinger News a while ago and I find it a welcome relief.  As an aggregator they keep the leftist stuff to a minimum and even label it so you can skip it if you don’t have a high tolerance for crap.

https://www.whatfinger.com/

Their motto is “The Relentless Pursuit of Creating The Greatest Aggregate Link News Site On Earth.”

And if that’s not enough, they have even shown the good taste to link to several of my humble blog posts!
