How Big is the Post America Contingent?

The present civil war pits all the groups that think America is evil against all the normal Americans who believe in the country that saved the world from all the insanities that raged against humanity in the twentieth century.  It defeated fascism, Nazism, socialism, bolshevism, Maoism and all the other isms that attempted to enslave mankind.  Now the stupidest version of communism, Bernie Bro-ism, is being used as a club by the Clinton-Bush-Obama gang to destroy the country in an orgy of imbecility.

But it has to be admitted that the millennials are willing dupes, the most useful of idiots, swallowing the lies that the intersectional politburo has cobbled together and enthusiastically supporting if not actually leading the charge in the street theater that currently afflicts the urban centers of almost every American city.  These are the children of the Baby Boomers.  They were foolishly but mostly innocently handed over to the ministrations of the America-hating teachers, professors, college resident advisors and human resource assistants who have filled their heads with self-hatred and contempt for the greatest nation that has ever arisen on this planet.

How big is this contingent?  I’ll say that it is the majority of that generation.  In addition to this cohort we can add in all the grievance groups.  This includes feminists of all stripes, all of the LGBTQ, 85% to 90% of the black population, a majority of the Hispanic population, and a good chunk of the rest of the minority groups currently found in the country.  Interestingly, a proportion of that Hispanic population seems to be up for grabs.  The more prosperous and the socially conservative members of the group don’t really feel comfortable with the radical ideology of the far left and rightly believe that tearing down the country is not in their children’s best interests.  I would also include in this category the Indian and Chinese and other Asian groups that came to America to partake in the prosperity and stability of the American system.  Many of these people have seen the rioters destroying the lives of small business owners and they have seen the school systems of these cities destroyed by eliminating the recognition of excellence.  It is possible over the course of a decade or two that these will be the new cohort of the right but it will require a different type of Republican to make that case convincingly and not the spineless open borders fools who play right into the hands of the Amerca-haters.

And the final portion of the Post Americans are the Cloud People and their minions in corporate America.  The very rich and the managerial class have made common cause with the woke Post Americans and pay obeisance to the rioters and use their allies in the media to try to convince everyone else that resistance is futile.

So does this equal 270 electoral votes worth of Post Americans?  Interestingly, probably not!  As much as the Left has been trumpeting their demographics is destiny jazz for thirty years it seems that they haven’t quite dragged themselves over the finish line just yet.  What will be especially interesting to see is whether their share of the millennial vote actually sinks below what they got in 2016.  After all, I have to imagine even the brain-dead millennials have to be disturbed by an actual insurrection being played out in real time in their neighborhoods while the city governments sit back and let it happen.  This is not to say that it will stop most of them from backing it but just maybe the smarter ones will see through the doublespeak.

In places like New York, California and Illinois it should be an ironclad policy of the federal government to withhold any funding to pay for the repair of the damage that the local governments allowed in their urban centers.  This along with the destruction of the small and not so small businesses that were pushed over the edge to bankruptcy by the rioting and the COVID shutdowns should be the price these states should be forced to pay.  That type of reality check will give their voters something to think about.  Because going forward it is important to remember that if the Left is shown by the results of the election to have overplayed their hand then consolidating the votes of those who swing back to our side is the first order of business.  Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota are ground zero for recapturing America.  And not just for the presidential election.  Taking senate seats, house seats and governorships are part of what it will take to begin changing the way Americans think about their country.  They have to be made to understand that in a real way we are in a war.  And the violence and chaos they have seen on the streets will reinforce that understanding and only when they elect men who will protect them from violence and intimidation will they get back the sense of stability and safety that was the norm in America for over a hundred years.

So, the answer to the title question is that the Post America contingent is pretty damn big but not quite big enough to take over if we stand up and stop them.  Don’t forget to vote this November and bring your conservative friends along if they need a ride.

Thriving in the Era of the Woke Revolt

Several voices on the Right have raised the analogy of what is going on in the West and in America particularly as akin to how the European civilization in the Iberian Peninsula (current day Spain and Portugal) had to survive the Moorish conquest and then reconquer their homeland back.  Now the fact that the Moors occupied it for almost eight hundred years (711 A.D. to 1492 A.D.) does put a bit of a damper on the party if you try to draw too strict a comparison between the two things.  I don’t think anyone would want to hear that twenty-five generations of Americans would have to endure being lectured on how many genders there are and which pronouns you are allowed to use for the man in the sundress.  Far from it.  I have no doubt that the insanity that is currently taking place will bring about its own correction.  The levels of insanity on display will complete the polarization of our population into the sane and the insane.

But what is true is that there will be large areas where the insane will run things.  Look at Seattle and Portland as examples of what it looks like when the lunatics get control of the asylum.  And those are just the most egregious examples.  Most of the large urban centers in this country have devolved into a hostage standoff where the urban poor and their woke co-conspirators are in constant negotiation for whatever ransom they can extort against the lives and livelihood of the middle class who are trying to exist in the constantly deteriorating conditions of these cities.

That will go on for a very long time.  The good news is that you don’t have to be a part of that.  In the future you will learn to navigate around the crazy people and the places they rule.  And that includes the companies they run.  Sometimes that means you will avoid working for or with the truly insane.  Maybe instead of working for Google you will find an IT department that’s more interested in your skills than your politics.  Or maybe you will decide to work in the “belly of the beast” anyway despite the oppressive environment and survive by living clandestinely.  Either way you will hone your skills as an inhabitant of the checkerboard landscape that is present day America.

The first thing to do is stop denying that it exists.  No one is going to snap his fingers and bring us back to fifty or a hundred years ago.  The crazies and the elites have struck a bargain and the crazies were given ownership of the schools, colleges, churches, courts and the HR departments of all the major corporations.  In exchange, the elites were allowed to offshore all their industries and import enough cheap labor to take care of whatever jobs were left.

Once you acknowledge where we currently are, you can begin to adapt to your environment and then thrive in it.  Situational awareness is very important.  Never play to their strengths.  Unless you have an armed bodyguard of special forces men you probably shouldn’t show up at an antifa rally in Portland, Oregon and declare your political beliefs.  If you want to start a fraternal society then make it a religious society that has protected status that can’t be shanghaied by social justice warriors and turned into the next Boy Scouts.  But be sure not to do it in a blue state.  In those areas everything will have to be on a clandestine personal basis.  And a personal basis is the best way to live your personal life anyway.  Know your friends and spend your time with them.  And it doesn’t even have to be your next-door neighbors.  You can make friends on-line and enjoy that experience too.  A shared point of view makes a good basis for association.  Nowadays free association only exists on a personal basis but you can make that work very well for many of the interactions you can choose to have.  This website is a perfect example of free association.  It’s very unlikely that Leftists would want to spend much time here since they’re not interested in the things I like and disagree with more or less 100% of what I believe.  Whereas people who hold similar beliefs with me will feel as though they belong here.  By congregating here we get to spend time with like minded individuals and also pass information back and forth.  Some of it is trivial like a book or a movie that’s interesting.  But maybe one day you hear about a job opportunity or a place to live or a politician that’s helping our side.

And then there are business opportunities.  Think about it.  Opportunities abound to provide cultural and entertainment choices that currently don’t exist for normal people.  A world that’s growing tired of woke comedies that aren’t funny and strident feminist superheroes that aren’t exciting might be a good market for someone repackaging (or curating as the hipsters now say) old books and movies for young and old alike.  Vox Day is doing that with his book and comic book publishing business.  And several other writers are separating themselves from the hyper-liberal publishing companies and producing normal reading material.  And with the technology changes happening in video it might even be possible for movies to be produced outside of the Hollywood studio system.  With on-line businesses becoming so dominant a network of right-wing people might open up business niches that are currently going unfulfilled.

So what have I been trying to say?  Basically I’m saying we’re living in a complicated world that has some very dangerous and dysfunctional areas and people in it that will be there for the foreseeable future but that with the right strategy they can be effectively bypassed to allow you and your friends to live your lives the way you want.  That’s pretty good news.

Long live the Reconquista!
