Black Rifle Coffee Company

I followed a link on Vox’s page and read an article at Breitbart about Keurig dropping their advertising from Hannity because of his interview with Judge Moore from Alabama and it mentioned a coffee company run by veterans called Black Rifle Coffee Company.  One of their mottos is “Make Coffee Great Again” so you can guess which side of the fence they’re on.

Well, that got me thinking.  Currently I drink Pete’s Coffee and they’re a West Coast company and I’d bet my last doubloon that they’re as left wing as The NY Times.  I thought, why don’t I put my money where my mouth is?  So, I’ve joined Black Rifle’s coffee club.  Now this is a big move.  I drink a whole lot of coffee.  Camera Girl cold brews a quart of coffee every morning and then sends that with me the next morning in a thermos (hot of course).  This thermos keeps me alive and producing engineering at an industrial scale.  If my coffee fails me it might cause a rift in the space/time continuum serious enough to destroy all life as we know it or at least get me fired for falling asleep at my desk.  But I want to do my part for the cause.  I have now sworn off lefty coffee for life.  Add that to the NFL, The Simpsons, almost all Hollywood movies and television shows and the Dixie Chicks (actually that one was easy, they suck).  Let’s just call this my first foray into virtue signaling.  Actually, now I see why they do it.  It’s fun sticking your thumb in the eye of The Man (well girly man anyway).

I really think it’s time for someone to start putting together a comprehensive list of conservative alternatives to lefty products and services (and companies that invariably cave to lefty pressure).  I’d love to pass along cash to right wing folks who make stuff that I need to buy anyway.  Something like an Amazon Associates program for right wing stuff would be fantastic.  But of course, without the Bezos bias thrown in. If any of you folks have any suggestions for conservative alternatives for everyday (or special) commerce items please share them here.  It’ll take years to put a dent into the Google/Amazon/Facebook military industrial complex but as the Chinese say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  Well, at least I think that’s what they’re saying, some of the r’s and l’s might have been dropped and I was crunching the crunchy noodles so I might have misunderstood.  Actually I think what he said was “please pay the bill and get out right away because we have a party of 24 and need to combine this table with a lot of other tables to form one big table.”

Well wish me luck.  This is serious business.  Without good coffee my existence would be a hollow mockery of living.  I would wander aimlessly from my desk to the cafeteria staring at the carafes of pencil shaving infused battery acid that they call coffee there and wondering how I managed to pass right through the gates of hell without noticing the inscription.

 

Since my readers don’t always stop by every day I figured I’d paste this poll on each post for a while to see what folks call themselves.  This is the post the poll came from  Who Are We?

… And that got me thinking. Who are the people who read my blog?  I thought it might be fun to see what the cross-section looked like.  If you feel like saying what you believe in, feel free to leave a comment and/or pick a label from the poll below.  I think it might be interesting.

Breitbart’s Tinseltown Travelogue

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Breitbart put together a three-part article that combined an historical narrative on Hollywood’s communist roots along with a first-person story of left-wing bias against anyone who is to the right of Karl Marx.  Reading it I learned something that I hadn’t known.  The Hollywood Blacklist was actually a reaction to the Leftist Hollywood Graylist that had existed since the beginning of Hollywood and which controlled the ideology of movies by only permitting communist approved scripts from communist script writers.  I had always known that the golden age movies were mostly the product of leftist and even communist writers and directors but I never realized that the control of the union that controlled the screen writers was a man who eventually became the president of the American Communist Party.  Basically, the blacklisting was the result of the US government doing something about the Soviet Union controlling the largest propaganda machine in the world, Hollywood.

And more than sixty years later the Soviet Union no longer exists but Hollywood is even deeper under the control of people who believe in an ideology that combines the worst tenets of communism with an anti-western, anti-family anti-normal cult that threatens the very existence of this country.  And they expect us to pay them for their poison.

So, what do I think of all this Hollywood uproar?  All these actresses coming out of the woodwork and complaining about Weinstein, Damon, Crowe, Affleck et alia?

Not my problem.  I wouldn’t let a woman I cared about within a mile of those creeps.  We were told by Meryl Streep that Harvey Weinstein is a “god.”  Of course, Baal was a “god” so maybe we didn’t get enough details.  Harvey himself told us Hollywood had the best moral compass because it had compassion.  Well I guess if you’re a four-hundred-pound satyr it probably makes sense to hope that those you attack have a whole boatload of compassion but maybe he’s right.  After all they haven’t changed their minds about Roman Polansky and you’ve got to admit it takes a lot of compassion to overlook what he did to that 14 year-old-girl.  Funny thing about that.  Wonder if Meryl is rethinking her position on that one?

Recently the news is full of the disastrous ratings and ticket sales for TV and movie properties.  Now why would that be?  Well, in my estimation, white men have abandoned Hollywood and broadcast TV.  And why have they done this?  Because Hollywood has very clearly assigned white men (and especially normal white men) as the oppressor of everyone else.  In their movies we are the enemy.  At best we’re insensitive rubes who don’t respect the legitimate hatred of all these oppressed groups toward us.  And at worst we’re cartoon villains twirling our moustaches as we tie the transgendered woman to the railroad track.

Then if you’re a normal white man what has Hollywood got that you want to pay for?  Well, pretty much nothing.  Even the action movies that used to lure us into theaters have been poisoned with venom against us and filled up with 95-pound girl-power heroines karate chopping their way through stadiums full of full sized men.  Even the super hero and sci-fi summer blockbusters have become sermons against the dangers of being white men.  They’ve kinda taken the fun out of it.  Yep.

So, is it any wonder that demand is starting to tank?  The article is written in the end as a cautionary tale meant to wake up the Hollywood establishment to their danger of running out of audience.

Yeah, well, no.  Please don’t wake up.  Run the damn thing into the ground and hurry up about it.  Pump out another five hundred George Clooney/Matt Damon movies like Suburbicon.  Please, by all means.  Plough through every last cent of your capital on those kinds of projects.  With any luck, you’ll be completely out of business by 2020.  I guess that means the 3% of Hollywood types who are actually conservative will be out of work too.  People I really like too.

Well, that’s too bad because it needs to go out of business.  Because it’s a terrible place and it produces too much evil to make up for the little bit of good it does produce.  Shut it down and sell it off for scrap to the Chinese.

Then maybe we can start from scratch and creative people will make movies that people want to see.  Movies about people like us.  People they can root for and care about.  And movies that don’t tell them that they are bad people and that they should be replaced and that they should just disappear.

So that’s what it is.  We want them to disappear, not us.  Doesn’t seem too much to ask for.

Hat Tip to Vox Day –  Build Your Own Platforms

Vox Day has a very good post that links to a very, very interesting series of articles on Breitbart

Vox is, as most of you probably know, an incredibly polarizing figure on the cultural front.  His public face is intentionally as antagonistic and “triggering” to the lefties as it can be.  He has staked out a position that thrives on conflict with the left.  And he is pointing the direction for a Reconquista of the cultural institutions.  To that end he has begun some commercial ventures that take advantage of the space that the left has produced by restricting what kind of books, video games and comic books are “allowable.”  His Castalia House publications produces mainstream fiction and some non-fiction that could never be published in the current left-wing publishing establishment.  In the last week or so, he has begun a kickstarter campaign to fund comic books that feature some very well-known comic book authors and artists who have been gray-listed by Marvel and DC for not being sufficiently trans-friendly or for actually having fun in their comics.  I read that he has already topped $200,000 in funding so I can only imagine that a beginning is being made toward a commercial product.  Excellent.  Even though I’m not much of a comic book guy, I could see buying a graphic novel or two if the product was interesting enough.  Kudos to Vox for making it happen.  If you are a comicophile (made up word!) then keep an eye out for his Alt★Hero comics.  But even if comic books don’t happen to be your thing, you can only admire someone who is doing something to reverse the scourge of leftist encroachment into all aspects of life.

Bravo Vox.  Bravo Breitbart.
