Even the Left Admits There Are Now Two Americas

In Ed Kilgore’s screed he talks about the undeniable fact that the two Americas are permanently opposed to each other on almost every issue and that we basically despise each other.  Of course, he describes it from the point of view of a Leftist and paints our people as the unenlightened, unintelligent and immoral side of the argument but at least he isn’t claiming that we don’t speak for half the country.  And he doesn’t pretend that we will come around to his way of thinking.  They hate us and we’re learning to hate them right back.

From my point of view the Left saying out loud that we are “not of the body” is a very good thing.  And I hope they start talking about getting rid of us by dumping the flyover states and going it alone.  That would be the single best thing that could possibly happen to us.  I don’t think it’s likely.  I think they know we would be phenomenally better off without them and they would be in a really bad place without us.  But even if it’s just talk, I think they should be encouraged to talk this way.  If enough of the stupider people in their camp started repeating this idea enough maybe we could make them think it’s their idea and stampeded the whole thing through before they have a chance to wise up the idiots.

The way to assist in the process of convincing the Left that we should move apart is to resist every policy that benefits them and make the red states as uncomfortable as possible for their ilk.  I think the red state governors should do everything possible to make their cities less appealing to Leftists.  Whatever policies the cities have promulgated should be reviewed at the state level and vetoed if they tend to attract Leftists to the red states.  The first thing I can think of is wean the population off welfare.  Not just temporarily but permanently.  The next thing I’d go after is the public schools and colleges.  Review their curricula and delete all the woke and LGBTQ stuff.  Hungary just enacted a law banning the proselytizing of minors on the homosexual lifestyle.  It was hilarious when the gay members of the EU governments started howling about this law.  That’s how I know it’s an effective law.  The public schools and state colleges are funded with our tax dollars.  Pulling that money out of the hands of Leftists is the single largest impact we can have in the Culture War.  Imagine if we could effectively end the programming of our children against us.  That alone might win the war.

And most importantly the states can nullify the anti-Constitutional federal laws and policies.  Banning affirmative action and allowing individuals to sue corporations for curtailing free speech on the social media platforms would put the hurt on those companies who have jumped on the woke bandwagon.  These things would be the best way to re-establish the constitutional basis for American freedom.  Without freedom of speech and religion and association we are not really Americans, we’re prisoners of war, we’re strangers in our own land.

So, yeah, I agree with Ed Kilgore, strange as that is to say.  We are two nations and we should be separated and allowed to go our own ways.  It’s no different from Czechoslovakia becoming Slovakia and the Czech Republic.  Who knows, after we part ways we might find we can be very good neighbors.  They can buy our food products and minerals and we can buy their movies, at least after they’ve been put through a wash cycle to remove the filth.  We can even divide up the nuclear arsenal.  Although with their strong aversion to all things masculine maybe they better just let us take care of those scary things.  Wouldn’t want to upset their troops during their drag queen war maneuvers.

Let’s agree to disagree and get on with the divorce.

A House Divided

And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand – Mark 3:25

He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. – Mark 3:30

A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. – Abraham Lincoln

About a hundred and sixty years ago after another presidential election the United States of America broke in two.  The circumstances had many of the same symptoms from which we are suffering now.

  • The two parts of the country held each other in deep mutual disdain.
    • It would be hard to claim that the Left and the Right do not hate each other wholeheartedly.
  • The Progressive party saw its advantage in overwhelming its adversary through massive immigration.
    • Check.
  • The Progressive party saw its agenda as a moral crusade. They thought of their opponents as vile sinners who must be punished as severely as possible.
    • Check.
  • The Progressive party encouraged zealots to take matters into their own hands and commit crimes up to and including murder if it advanced the progress of the cause.
    • Check.

My point is that after witnessing all the BLM and COVID madness that has gone on and the scale of election fraud that was completely ignored by almost all levels of government at the federal, state and local level I no longer see a way that we are going to be able to reconcile our differences with the Left.  And that is not because I don’t think there are millions on the Right who want to let things blow over.  They do.  But the Left neither cares nor thinks they have to care what we think.  They intend to force us to live how they want us to live.  And that includes thoughts, words and deeds.  They will propagandize our children, monitor our communications, dictate our entertainment and regulate our religious and family lives.  Unless we break free.

You need look no further than Portland Oregon to see the template for how things will be done.  Thugs will terrorize our neighborhoods and the government will not intercede on our behalf.  They will select victims whose only crimes are being white or being normal or just being happy and they will make an example of you.  And after they’ve ruined your life you will be held up in the media as a warning so that those like you will grovel and hand over everything they have; their money, their homes, their jobs, their self-respect, their families and finally their lives.  But first what you’ll give up is your freedom; freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly and the right to bear arms.

And what is our sin?  We were stupid.  We believed that America guaranteed its citizens the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  As it turns out, those things are only yours for as long as you are willing to fight for them.  The Left has been learning from the Jacobins and their Marxist children for almost as long as the country has been here.  And now with the help of the globalist oligarchs they’ve concocted a gulag for us that Orwell himself couldn’t have imagined in his worst nightmares.  And of course, it has a smiley face slapped onto the front just so you know that there’s nothing personal, just the system doing what it’s supposed to, rooting out bad thoughts.  It’s being done for your own good.

So, that’s the story.  They’re not going to let us go.  They’ll continue the campaign until they win or we give them a bloody nose.  And that’s only going to happen when our side decides to stop playing nice.  Because two can play at this game.  One of these days I expect all red counties to show 4000% voting levels.  Or all the Google server farms in red areas will simultaneously have the sewer lines become pressurized and fry the cloud.  Or maybe NLM (Normal Lives Matter) will suddenly appear in Cambridge and burn Harvard University to the ground as a way to equalize higher education in America.  Who knows what will be the first step?

But the real first step is acknowledging that the system isn’t set up to do what it says it will do.  It’s a scam and we are the marks.  And the only time you might be hearing someone tell the truth is when they drop the flowery language and tell you what concrete thing, they can give you if you work with them.  Like if they say they’re going to ignore the federal requirements for entitlements, affirmative action, LGBTQ madness and illegal immigration.  Those are real things.  If they do those things then they’re for real.  Those will be people who have brains and guts.  Look for those people and then watch to see if they produce results.  They’re going to want things in return.  They are going to want to run things their way.  If they can produce results, pay them.  They will be worth the price.

19NOV2020 – Status Report on the Election and the Country

Here we are going into the third week after the election and, if anything, things are getting weirder.  By all indications the fraud that took place was more organized than any typical urban election shenanigans.  The rigged computer software and the manufacturing of bogus election ballots on the order of hundreds of thousands of votes looks to be fraud on a scale that even jaded judges will be hesitant to ignore.

The election certifiers are even getting into the act.  The votes for Detroit have been called into question by the two Republican certifiers and I have to assume that we are going to see confidence in the voting process drop to rock bottom levels.  Currently 52% of Republican voters surveyed think that the Democrats stole the election and as things become clearer that number will probably rise to 95%.

President Trump is getting legal help from several people who have shown themselves to be unafraid of the media circus and aren’t worried about being blacklisted by the Democrats and the Never Trump Republicans.  The big question mark will be the Supreme Court.  In my mind what the President needs is to get the information out to the American public and then let public opinion force the Justice Department and the courts to do their jobs and look to see what the facts on the ground are.  We’re no longer in the world of the 1960 Election or even the 2000 Election where worry over damaging America’s trust in the institutions of the government is more important than the results of an election.  There is no trust in the institutions of government.  That has now become the operating principle.  If the 72 million people who voted for Donald Trump think they were cheated, which they do, then effectively Joe Biden would be an illegitimate president.  And that will have very serious consequences.  We saw how debilitating the “resistance” to President Trump’s administration was.  I assume that having half the country sure that you are a crook who cheated his way into the White House would render Joe Biden a veritable prisoner in the Oval Office.  Wherever he went he would be booed and hooted at.  I won’t even speculate beyond that point.

On balance I think if President Trump prevails in the election battle the resistance against him will be even more intense than what we have seen up till now.  The only difference is that he has become inured to it and has developed strategies and located personnel who can cope with it.  In either case we have now reached the point of complete polarization in the country.  The proportion of people who haven’t joined one side or the other is minimal.  The relationship between the two sides has reached the point of boiling animosity and open conflict including murder has already occurred along the geographic lines where the most radical partisans on both sides find themselves juxtaposed, like Portland and Kenosha.

I can’t see that things are going to calm down regardless of how the election is decided.  From my point of view, it is important to start thinking about living in a country that will become more and more disunited.  All the things we’ve been saying about developing our own platforms and institutions is becoming more relevant and crucial.  One thing that is clear is that we are living in a treacherous environment.  It is important that people are careful about what they say because everything they say can be heard by everybody in the world.  Be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to information that can help you avoid trouble.  Protect those important to you in every way you can.  And most importantly avoid places that you know will be filled with irrational individuals.  Physical danger is now not a conspiracy theorist’s paranoid delusion.  It’s a living breathing reality.

Pre-Game Jitters and An Election Day Open Post

Note:Updates are added at the bottom of the post over the course of the day.  

Well here we go.  No matter how confident you may feel about the results of the upcoming elections you’re probably a little nervous about what will be going on for the next week or more.  And so am I.  I’m fairly certain the President will be re-elected relatively easily but fairly certain and sure are not the same thing.  Also, based on the actions of the woke lunatics infesting the cities around the country I’m pretty sure there will be at least a certain amount of bedlam and violence happening, especially if the polls show Trump winning.  As soon as that happens these creeps will go ballistic, especially in their strongholds like Portland and Seattle.  I expect there will be a certain number of murders and lots of arson and looting for sure.  And the Democrats and their army of crooked lawyers and judges will sow confusion and attempt to outright steal any states that aren’t strong enough to defend themselves.  And the Supreme Court will be the epicenter of the battle and John Roberts is a spineless loser who will do his damnedest to hurt our side.

But what I think is good advice is to try to keep the excitement level a couple of notches below maximum, so instead of eleven dial it back to seven.  It will be a long night for sure and it might even be a very long week of distressing news regardless of how well the election goes.  The world is full of very bad people and they will be looking to rattle our side as hard as they can.  And of course, the media is going to spin everything they can as negatively as they can for as long as they can.

I’m off this week and so as a way to keep morale up I intend to keep this as an open post going all the way through election day and even beyond if it is warranted.  I’ll try to combine election results, links to important or entertaining news along with my always witty and penetrating insights.  Anyone who has comments is, as usual, welcome to chime in with relevant or entertaining discussion.  I’m especially interested to hear about local conditions where you are.  Anything you find interesting about things going on during the election is exactly what I’m looking for.

So, let’s hope it ends like it did in 2016 with a river of progressive tears washing away the mounds of inaccurate polls and their howls drowning out the words of the talking heads trying to explain how they got it so wrong.  But even if it is a long confusing time of disputed election results and screeching progressives threatening to summon the military if their claims about disputed results aren’t honored immediately and unconditionally, remember to keep calm and look at the big picture.  There is no guarantee that elections will work in our favor every time or even at all.  The important thing is to be looking at how to prevent the Left from impacting you, your family and friends.  That’s something you can work on when we’re winning or losing.  And be willing to share a laugh or a kind word with anyone on our side that you meet here or elsewhere.

Best of luck to President Trump and the other folks on our side who are about to get on the roller coaster that is Election Day 2020.  And best wishes to all of us.  And as an old tv show used to say, “be careful out there.”

 

11:30 A.M. Update – Just got back from voting.  My little town turned out in phenomenal numbers.  The lines were epic.  But it was truly fun getting out and doing something useful.  One amusing event happened in line.  About two people behind me in line was this twenty something kid with a sort of goth persona; dyed black hair, black clothes, and the palest skin I’ve seen in years.  As we got close to the front of the line a middle aged woman comes out of the exit door and the young guy yells out have you voted for Joe Biden today.  She made a face like he had said something vile and exclaimed “Hell no!”  I almost burst out laughing but just chuckled a little instead.  I’ll have to say that restored my faith in humanity.  Even here in the belly of the beast, New England, there are plenty of good people left.

12:54 P.M. Note:  I’ve been sent an invite for a 9 pm zoom to serve as a remote election party.  Camera Girl has agreed to bake some pizza pies for me so I can have a reheat-able food available as the long night wears on.  She also plans to studiously ignore the goings on.  She is one of those benighted people who takes no interest in politics.  She claims I am responsible for taking care of that.  Ah well, she is making the pizza after all.  What social provisions is everyone else doing for this  momentous event?  Is it mostly a solitary one for you? 

3:22 P.M. – News Headline – Pelosi Calls Amy Coney Barrett an ‘Illegitimate Supreme Court Justice”

Can you imagine any normal person being called illegitimate by Nancy Pelosi.  At this point I don’t think Pelosi even qualifies as a living human.  As far as I can tell she’s now one of the undead.  The only question is whether she can qualify as a vampire if her sustenance is gin instead of blood.  Please Nancy stay in your  crypt, your scaring the children and Halloween is officially over.

7:03 P.M. – Trump wins Kentucky.  No surprise there.

7:33 P.M. – So far all the numbers are what you’d expect.  Some networks have already called VA for Biden with 0% counted.  But that’s probably a safe state to call for the Dems.  The interesting ones for us will be the Carolinas and Georgia.  If those go well it will bode well for the rest of the night.

7:55 P.M. – I was listening to Fox News but there are just too many progs there to make it enjoyable.  If anyone knows of a better live discussion let me know.

8:02 P.M. – SC was called for Trump.  Not a big surprise, but encouraging.

8:09 P.M. – Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois and Massachusetts just got called for Biden with the usual 0%.  No surprises.

8:18 P.M. – Fox is saying that Trump looks like he is winning in Florida in unexpected places (Miami/Dade).

8:40 P.M. – Florida seems like it may be an easy win for Trump.

9:40 P.M. – The betting odds have now shifted to Trump.

10:10 P.M. – Everything seems to be going our way.  Fingers crossed.

10:51 P.M. – It looks like PA is shutting down the counting probably because Trump is so far ahead.

1:33 A.M. – So the crooked state officials are withholding the totals in PA and several other locales.  We’ll have to wait until the daylight to see how these criminals try to steal the election.  To be continued.

9:55 A.M. – Shennanigans seemed to have ensued.  Lawyers will have to sort this out.  But without a doubt MI looks like it will be needed.

What’s Right

(My Understanding of the Current Composition of Non-Leftist America)

This is an update to my earlier column back in November 2017 “Defining the Space Between NeverTrump and the Alt-Right,”  that appeared on the American Greatness website.  At the time I declared that I was a red-pilled normie.  Of course, I was quickly corrected by someone surely far to my right with the news that there are many red pills and I had a ways to go.

Here we are another eighteen months later (more or less) and my learning curve has flattened out a little and I have a better understanding of the nuances and distinctions on the non-left half of the socio-political spectrum.  And the world has changed a great deal too.

Back in 2017 the NeverTrumpers were still in the ascendancy in Washington.  Paul Ryan was still the Speaker of the House and the National Review and the Weekly Standard were still considered conservative magazines by some Republicans.  Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham were still more likely to side with Chuck Schumer than President Trump on any particular issue of the day.  And every fresh rumor from the leakers on the Mueller investigation was trumpeted on the front page of the Times and Post as if impeachment and conviction were only hours away.  How the mighty have fallen.

The point to all this is that the categories of the Non-Left have not changed much over time but the sizes of these constituencies have shifted radically.  Let’s start with the left most extreme edge of the Non-Left.  Here are the liberal civic nationalists or “Centrists.”  These are the swing voters that can vote Democrat or Republican depending on circumstances and really don’t have much claim to be grouped with conservatives.  They are socially liberal and fiscally pretty liberal too.  But to the extent that they can vote Republican they are Non-Left.  This is a fairly large group of people in the Mid-West and probably a large number of them would be capable of voting for Joe Biden or President Trump in 2020 depending on circumstances.  But considering the changes in the economy and the news (like the conclusion to the Mueller investigation) it seems likely that President Trump’s rising popularity probably stems from the changes in opinion of this group.  So, to the extent that they are shifting rightwards let’s say that this constituency is growing.

Next to the Centrists moving rightwards are the so-called “Establishment Republicans.”  Here are the business people who expect the Republican party to stand for capitalism, low taxes and fiscal restraint.  This is the JEB! crowd.  They trooped over to the NeverTrump movement en masse as soon as they found out that Trump didn’t think globalization was the greatest thing since sliced bread.  This group doesn’t shrink or grow.  It’s a population that inhabits the same stratum with the elite Left.  In fact, they’re the same people.  They’re just a little less strident in their social opinions.  But they have moved away from their virulent anti-Trump positions as of late and at this point, they’re more neutral in their attitudes about the President.  Personally, they still despise him but on a practical basis they concede that they may have to deal with him for another term and they are trying to figure out how best to take advantage of that.  An exception to this trend is the Neo-Cons.  These War-Hawks are now synonymous with the NeverTrumpers.  Bill Kristol and Max Boot are the most virulent of the bunch but as a group they have drifted so far from even the remaining Establishment Republicans that they are now essentially Leftists.

The next big class of people are the Conservative Civic Nationalists.  This is the bulk of the Non-Left.  These are the normal people who have always believed in God and Country and that America was the land of freedom, opportunity and fairness.  They believed that all Americans were lucky to be living in the greatest country on God’s green earth.  They believed that the rule of law under the Constitution and especially the Bill of Rights is what made this the closest thing to heaven on earth and anyone living here should be supremely grateful to the Founding Fathers for inventing it and his own ancestors for coming here.  This is the group that has had the biggest change occur in the last couple of years.  But to define the change let’s break this group into two sub-divisions.  Let’s call them Sleepwalkers and the Red-Pilled.  Back in the early 2000s all the Civic Nationalists (including myself) were Sleepwalkers.  We believed that the Bush family was conservative.  W told us he was a religious conservative.  We thought he meant that he believed in the social conservative beliefs.  We thought he would defend and protect the traditional values that formed the basis of the support that allowed him to send millions of young men half way around the world to primitive lands where they would put their bodies in harms way to fight his wars.

But the more we defended W, the more he embraced the programs and policies that exposed his constituency to impoverishment through globalist financial policies and replacement by illegal migration.  By the time the Bushes had come to publicly embrace the Clintons and the Obamas it was becoming plain to a small part of the Civic Nationalists that we were being played.  This group decamped and became the Dissident Right (some called themselves the Alt-Right).  Others were just confused and demoralized that all the loyalty and sacrifice that went into the Afghan and Iraq Wars was completely lost on the Neo-Cons and the Republican Establishment.  But during the run up to the 2016 election the information that the Dissident Right had decoded started becoming disseminated and a small group of the Civic Nationalists became “red-pilled.”  They realized that if Jeb Bush was the Republican candidate there was no hope of turning around the Anti-American program that Obama had started.  In fact, none of the candidates, even ones who believed in the conservative agenda could stand up to the combination of Left-Wing journalism and their own fears of being called racists if they dared campaign against globalism and replacement migration.  No one except Trump.  And as these red-pilled normies saw the lengths to which the Establishment Republicans and the Left would go in order to defeat Trump they became convinced that the only way to save the country was to destroy the old order.  Business as usual would mean the end of our republic as we knew it.

And here is the other big change that has been happening for the last year and a half.  The ratio of the Red-Pilled to the Sleepwalkers has been growing.  My information is based on the acquaintances I have who have shifted over that time.  It is a steady trend and it only goes in one direction.  This shift isn’t too important short term because even the Sleepwalkers have accepted Trump and will support him in 2020 but the importance of the Red-Pilled contingent lies in the post-Trump era.  The Red-Pilled are far less likely than their Sleepwalking brethren of being fooled again, no more Bushes for them.

To the right of the Red-Pilled Normies lies the Dissident Right.  These are the people that are so disillusioned with America that they feel that the only way for them to live free is for the United States to be divided between the Left and the Right.  To a large extent these folks feel that racial differences and resentment will prevent the various ethnic populations from living in harmony.  They believe that the Left’s use of identity politics will spread to the white population and will splinter the unity of the American nation into racial components that will want to separate to provide each group freedom from oppression by the other groups.

The Dissident Right is a disturbing group to follow.  Their theory paints a bleak picture of human nature and the future they predict doesn’t hold much hope for a happy place where America is now.  But one thing that cannot be denied is that they understand the Left and how it has been dominating the world for about a century.  They understand the psychological and sociological tactics and strategies that the Left has been successfully using to destroy almost every facet of life that we held dear.  They’ve destroyed the laws, education, corporations, social institutions, churches, the family, sex roles and now they are even redefining what it means biologically to be a man or a woman.  They can predict what the Left will say and do and they can define tactics that will work against these people.  That’s pretty hard to argue with.

For myself, I tend to agree with what they say is wrong with our society.  But I presume that if the practices are changed then the result will change too.  For instance, I think that the anti-male, anti-normal and anti-white rhetoric and governmental policies that the Left has enshrined and which breed animosity between people can be eliminated.  Once these things are removed the reasons for resentments will be eliminated too.  But I also will admit that I can’t be 100% sure that they are wrong.  After all they have seen things when others didn’t.  For me the jury is out on their predictions.  But I hold onto my civic nationalist beliefs.

So that’s what I see to the right of the Left.  The biggest chunk is still the Civic Nationalists and, in that chunk, the Red-Pilled Normies are growing and the Sleepwalkers are slowly waking up.  The Centrist are on our side at the moment but as always, they blow with the wind.  The Establishment Republicans are useless and in it for themselves but they’ll go along if a strong man drags them by their purse strings.  The Neo-cons have returned to the Left where they belonged.  And finally, the Dissident Right is the Angry Cynic who sees the Con-Man on the Left shaking down the Idealists and warns the rest of us to prepare for a fight.

Reflections on the Political Landscape

A while back I put Colin Woodward’s book, “American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America,” in my wish list based on the Z-Man’s description of its importance.  I’m about twenty percent into it and I’ve got an idea of where it is going.  I also can tell that Woodward is a thorough going lefty but that there is a lot of useful information in the book.  The beginning of the book describes the origins of the various “nations” that he contends still underly the current political and cultural reality of the United States and its surroundings in North America.

As I said, there is a lot of slant to his description of the character of the various populations and you can tell where his sympathies lie and who he is virtue signaling to but there is also valuable information that actually helps to explain some general behaviors that can be observed at work today.

For example, Woodward waxes poetic about the New England characteristic of local autonomy and small-town democracy.  This is presented as a contrast to the feudal rule of aristocratic Virginia where great landowners lorded it over the common men and monopolized the government and the courts.  Supposedly this is still the reality today.  But anyone living in New England knows that any community that imposed any policies out of synch with the smothering regulation existing at the state level would be assaulted with the full force of the state’s judicial and administrative might and quickly the offenders would find themselves in prison and their families dispossessed and harassed out of the state.

One of the features of New England was its early adoption of universal education and the establishment of higher education as the basis of elite status.  This is also touted as a democratic virtue as opposed to the wealth-based basis of education in Virginia.  Looking at the present day it’s instructive to see that the educational situation is much changed.  The educational state of the poor even in New England has degraded to the point where claiming universal education is very debatable.  And the status of higher education has likewise changed to the point where elite status is more of a legacy condition than any kind of meritocratic status.  In other words, the state and poorer colleges have been degraded to where their degrees are approaching a worthless status whereas the high-status Ivy League schools are the domain of elite families and the affirmative action minorities that they include for the sake of appearances.

What seem to be happening is that the supposed egalitarian impulses of the New England nation and their descendants in the other Left dominated areas of the country have abandoned the pretense of equality and now embrace the model of an elect elite directing the lives of the rest of society as some sort of latter-day serfdom.  This conforms more closely to the Marxist model than any puritan world view.  And this of course makes sense.  As the New Englanders shed their Christianity, they reached out for what replaced it in their environment, the fashionable socialism of nineteenth century intellectuals.

I’ll have a full review at some point and other discussions of the ideas and the applications of these ideas to the present condition we find ourselves in.  Z-Man was right. There is useful information in this book overlaid with leftist smugness.

22JAN2019 – American Greatness Post of the Day – The Left Won’t Allow a Peaceful Separation – Christopher Roach

When American Greatness starts quoting the Z-Man by name the apocalypse can’t be far behind.  The Z-Man has often made the point that the Progressives of today are the direct descendants of the “vinegar drinking scolds of New England hell bent on making sure nobody is enjoying life at all.  Christopher Roach quotes a chunk of his Puritan origin argument and then amplifies his own opinion about how this will prevent a peaceful separation of the United States into separate Left and Right populations.

The Left Won’t Allow a Peaceful Separation

It’s getting harder and harder to believe that some of the predictions of the Dissident Right are not correct.  The normies are waking up.  The Overton Window is way over to the right.

Even NBC News Thinks the Dems are Heading for a George McGovern Disaster

Hard to believe NBC News is talking sense.  They are comparing the hard left turn the Democrats took in 1972 to the freak show that’s happening today.  Of course the difference is that the number of imbeciles has increased significantly in the interim.  But for anyone with a functioning cerebral cortex the spectacle on display during the Kavanaugh meltdown should have been sufficient to scare him off the Democrat side.

Pretty good read.  https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/how-will-democrats-do-midterms-richard-nixon-s-1972-re-ncna923076

 

A Different Kind of Red Shift – Redux

A Different Kind of Red Shift

So that was a divorced couple living in the same house.

Well , here’s the other shoe dropping.  Divide the property.

http://thefederalist.com/2018/04/10/time-united-states-divorce-things-get-dangerous/

I saw Vox Day linking to this article at the Federalist.  Now the federalist is hardly the Alt-Right.  Things seem to be percolating up into the regular world.

A Different Kind of Red Shift

A couple of day ago I linked to a post on American Greatness by Angelo Codevilla https://amgreatness.com/2018/04/13/living-with-politics-as-war/ .  I’d like to elaborate a little what I think is interesting about this article.  Vox Day has often said (and I paraphrase)  that the Alt-Right (or Dissident Right or whatever else you call it) will have arrived when the normies have shifted so far to the right that their views can only be distinguished from the Alt-Right by tactics and not by what they believe are the facts on the ground.

Well, I think I’m seeing that happen in real time.  Codevilla is a mainstream academic figure and not an Alt-Right provocateur.  Reading his description of where the country now is and what to do about it is to realize that the idea of going back to a consensus society is effectively dead.  The only question between the normal traditionalists and the Alt-Right is whether we just set up separate shops under the nominally United States or fight a civil war to establish borders between enemy states.  That is remarkable.  It should be disquieting for me but it isn’t.  I still think it will be a bloodless divorce but either way I think we should get on with it.

Codevilla goes through the various arenas where Leftist coercion is the most egregious (schools and colleges, corporate blackmail and de-platforming) and suggests that federal coercion will be less effective than it was formerly and that state legislatures may ignore federal precepts and just go their own way as they have lately on drug enforcement.  Whether he is correct about the federal government giving up on some of its control of local behavior isn’t clear to me but I do think that push back from the right is likely to increase in strength in the future.

So Vox is fond of saying, and I quote, “The Alt-Right is inevitable.”  Depending on how you want to define the Alt-Right we may be seeing proof of his statement.  And if that means the vast majority of non-leftists waking up to the necessity of casting off the oppression of the Left then I am 100% on-board.  Long live the Revolution.  Off with their heads (or at least throw the bums out).
