Top trolling by 20 year old student @GodfreyElfwick at the British Lefty flagship The Guardian. Glenn Greenwald took the bait hook, line and sinker, in spite of obvious giveaways like "liberal kneejerk" and "young white men."
I was curious as to the motives of leave voters. Surely they were not all racist, bigoted or hateful? I watched some debates on YouTube. Obvious points of concern about terrorism were brought up. A leaver cited Sam Harris as a source. I looked him up: this “intellectual, free-thinker” was very critical of Islam. Naturally my liberal kneejerk reaction was to be shocked, but I listened to his concerns and some of his debates. This, I think, is where YouTube’s “suggested videos” can lead you down a rabbit hole. Moving on from Harris, I unlocked the Pandora’s box of “It’s not racist to criticise Islam!” content. Eventually I was introduced, by YouTube algorithms, to Milo Yiannopoulos and various “anti-SJW” videos (SJW, or social justice warrior, is a pejorative directed at progressives). 
They were shocking at first, but always presented as innocuous criticism from people claiming to be liberals themselves, or centrists, sometimes “just a regular conservative” – but never, ever identifying as the dreaded “alt-right”. (...) It hit me like a ton of bricks. Online radicalisation of young white men. It’s here, it’s serious, and I was lucky to be able to snap out of it when I did. And if it can get somebody like me to swallow it – a lifelong liberal – I can’t imagine the damage it is doing overall. It seemed so subtle – at no point did I think my casual and growing Islamophobia was genuine racism. The good news for me is that my journey toward the alt-right was mercifully brief: I never wanted to harm or abuse anybody verbally, it was all very low level – a creeping fear and bigotry that I won’t let infest me again. But I suspect you could, if you don’t catch it quickly, be guided into a much more overt and sinister hatred. (...)

The Alt-Right had its use as a weapon against political correctness. Its philosophical fallacy that leads to ethnic nationalism was always going to be a problem. Steve Bannon had already thrown them under the bus before the weekend (more). But now that one of its figure heads has been caught on camera yelling Heil Trump in a meeting praising the mystical inherencies of the white race, the Alt-Right has become positively toxic. A clean break will be best. Cernovich is the message bearer.

In "Fetishizing Victimhood" Clay Routledge describes how colleges promote psychological frailty. Curiously, the loudest cries often come from students attending the most expensive and elite colleges. Turns out, these postmodern nihilists have discovered a human condition best described philosophically as negative values. Not the strong, the moral standard of life, is held up as a value to emulate, but the weak and frail. What occurs in practice is a race downhill for the champion of weakness, the very best victim. This explains the hysteria contests we see on campuses today after the election of Donald Trump, a man who personifies positive values. But in the universe of special snowflakes this is a threat. Which just goes to show that in a decaying society there exists such a phenomenon as a negative moral scale. Just as in the positive spectrum people are in competition for the good, better, best, there is a negative competition of bad, worse and worst.
Administrators at the University of Florida recently notified students that a 24-hour counseling hotline is available to anyone who feels offended by Halloween costumes. Other colleges, in an attempt to pre-empt the psychological threat of offensive costumes, have created and distributed Halloween costume guidelines to help students make appropriate choices if they decide to dress up. The University of Wisconsin (...) encouraged students to attend a seminar titled “Is Your Halloween Costume Racist?” (...) 
Tufts University went a step further, sending a letter to students indicating they could face investigation(by university police) and punishment for making the wrong costume choice. Of course, this issue is not about Halloween. More and more colleges are creating “bias response teams” that students can contact if they feel they have been victimized by microaggressions. There is an increasing demand for safe spaces and trigger warnings to protect students not from physical danger, but from ideas, course material, and viewpoints they may find offensive. 
Conservative speakers are being banned from campus because students claim to find them threatening. Professors are being investigated for not being sufficiently politically correct in class, failing to predict what material might trigger students, or refusing to use gender neutral pronouns that are not even part of the English language. 
Even more concerning perhaps are recent moves to create racially segregated student retreats, student unions, and campus housing in the service of offering marginalized groups places of refuge and healing. Unless students are suffering from a severe mental illness, the type of pathology that would likely keep them from being able to attend and succeed in college to begin with, they should be perfectly capable of remaining psychologically healthy in the face of offensive Halloween costumes, distasteful jokes or comments, and sensitive course material. 
(...) In most real-world contexts, fragility signals weakness and dependence. But in the victimhood culture promoted on many college campuses, because fragility is celebrated, it signals high status. This creates an arms race in which different groups try to one up each other on which is the most threatened and vulnerable. As Hoff Sommers puts it, on many college campuses victimhood status “confers authority and prestige.” (More) H/t WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

Oct. 29, 2016 Hillary Voters Attack Homeless Black Woman For Supporting Trump.

A homeless black woman who defended Trump was viciously abused and then physically attacked by crazed Social Justice Warriors. What we have here in the latest video by Paul Watson is a classic illustration of the leftist thug mentality. Watson's commentary is self explanatory. Violence is the reason why SJWs must turn their opponents into demons, hitlerites and racists. How else can you justify the violence?

Sep 13, 2016 #Daddy Will Save Us: An Art Show for Patriots.

At least 6 Conservative artists were preparing for Saturday’s historic opening of the first Conservative art show. But the Brooklyn gallery canceled after online threats and harassment by a gay fascist mob. Organizer Lucian Wintrich says the artists were scrambling to find another gallery for Saturday’s show. (...) Following the success of Wintrich’s photo series, he has scouted other conservative artists and performers across America to submit additional pieces to the first ever curated conservative art show in America, #DaddyWillSaveUs. The opening will now be held at 191 North, 14th Street, Brooklyn, New York October 8th starting at 8pm ET.  (More)

The show, which is currently selling tickets on IndieGoGo to raise the necessary funds to pay for the event, will feature Wintrich’s iconic “Twinks4Trump” photoshoot, as well as a series of new installations. Milo is a featured artist at the event, and will submit an original piece of artwork to the show. Conservative commentator and Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes and pharmaceutical entrepreneur and leftist folk villain Martin Shkreli will also submit pieces. Additional contributors include Martin Shkreli, James O’Keefe, the Godesky Brothers, Jon Proby, Sebastian Sommer, and more.

“I think this exhibition will fight the dogma of a single accepted political ideology among artists and the creative class as a whole,” said Wintrich, the New York City resident behind Twinks4Trump. “I lost my job, received copious death threats, and to add insult to injury, close to a hundred people unfriended me on Facebook. Folks can’t handle that I’m a Trump supporter with immaculate taste.” Wintrich will be auctioning off art pieces at the event, with 30% of the proceeds going towards the American Military Partner Association.

“Who knew that the way to be on the cutting edge of controversy in the art world would be to support Donald Trump?” said Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos on the event. “The LBGT community’s response to Lucian and his fellow artists is embarrassing. How can a movement dedicated to expression, pride and diversity be so dead set against diversity of opinion?” “Art is one of those areas of culture that has been dominated by the left for decades, because the left used to represent the rebellious and the avant-garde.

Now, of course, it represents the establishment, and its conservatives and Trump supporters who are the new renegades.” “I am proud to lend my artistic talents to Lucian’s project along with many others in a personal statement of support for Donald Trump and making America great again.”

You can purchase tickets for Wintrich’s #DaddyWillSaveUs event at IndieGoGo here, and you can check out the other special guests and more information about the event here. Please donate here:  The full press release (source):

Aug 30, 2016 Vox Day and Stefan Molyneux: What Is The Alt-Right?

The Alt-Right is basically an organic bucketful of renegades protesting the tyranny of political correctness. This is what explains their lack of manners in confrontation with the petty social tyrants. Hillary has already identified them as "the enemy" of the Left, and with good justification. The Left in all its forms has no longer any control over these renegades. The Alt-Right also grew out protest against the globalist elites riding rough shod over individual rights and national interests. They invented the term "Cuckservatives", which is a brand of Burke "Big Society" Conservatism without objective ideology, other than the curtailing of Progressives, preventing them from committing the worst mistakes through cooptation and collaboration (what could go wrong?). We also know them as RINOs, a branch of the Never-Trumpists. They see Trumpism as a radical, reactionary movement going much too far in its zeal for change. Cuckservatives are basically anti change -- any change. Talk show host Rush Limbaugh, clearly no adherent to Cuckservatism, recently highlighted a debate on the subject. You can read the articles here: Thesis, Rebuttal, Rush commentary. The Alt-Right is a very new branch of Conservatism that still lacks intellectual rooting. They share the polylogism of multiculturalism and identity politics, it's just that they don't want to empower minorities at the expense of (usually white) majorities. But that is precisely the goal of cultural Marxism! These are minor details that still need to be hammered out. For now the Alt-Right is a useful tool in combating the scourge of political correctness and the surge of Social Justice Warriors in academe.

Jun 29, 2016 Stupid butt-hurt millennials are whining and crying because the UK voted to leave the EU.

Generation Snowflake is insane! There is no other way to describe it. Arrested development at the age of spoiled toddlers is one thing. But to reach these heights of hatred and psychopathy requires more than simple maladjustment. Psychiatrists will be dining out on this issue for years to come. There's one thing we can throw some light on though how Leftists could end up on the side of Big Corporations and a centralized, anti democratic super state. In a series entitled The Counter Enlightenment we are making the case on the basis of the evolution of philosophy, that the root of Leftism isn't the Enlightenment, but a movement that has been scheming for the last 250 years to bring back the Ancien Regime.

Jun 8, 2016 Protesting At Milo UCLA Event and Speaking at Reason Rally on May 31. (Source)

As Dave Rubin is pointing out, the basic difference between traditional Liberalism and the postmodern Left is reason. Rubin probably doesn't realize how fundamental this epistemological difference really is. The old Left used reason within an irrational context, but at some point reason no longer won their arguments. Therefore, the only solution for the postmodern Left was to go entirely irrational. And this is exactly where we are today's campuses with its insane SJW and its hysterical snowflakes. The aim is not to encourage or engage in debate, but to simply shut it down. For an easy flowchart please check the Evolution of Socialism.

DePaul University, or universities in general, the gift that keeps on giving...Insane and out of control. Universities are factories for cognition impaired little Nazis.

Unrelated to the Milo event, but equally symptomatic of postmodern insanity:

May 28, 2016


Nowhere is postmodern madness more evident than in our houses of higher education. These folks are completely out of control. Yet, they are very easy to demolish: simply stop state funding! Starve the insane social justice warriors and their culture of irrational activism of the will of cash. There is no place for them in the temples of reason and enlightenment.

Milo Yiannopoulos assaulted and threatened by BLM 'protesters' at DePaul University.

Well, that didn't take long! Milo had been fooling around being outrageously gay for half an hour of so, when in stormed the goons of Black Lives Matter. Initially the organizers hoped the University's cavalry might intervene to save free speech, but regrettably reason and liberty is not what higher education is about these days. The security guards, who DePaul forced both the organisers and Breitbart to pay for, refused to stop the fascist assault on free speech. As Milo so properly put it, the university staff were acting like spineless c*nts. When security refused to act, even after students chanted “do your job”, Milo ordered a march to the college president’s office where more mini scuffles took place between right-wing free speech advocates and leftist fascists. Miraculously, Milo survived the left-wing idiocy and took to Twitter to share his thoughts. “Appalling that @DePaulU security, which I paid for, refused to remove a man from stage who threatened to hit me.” (Source)

At DePaul itself, a student with the moniker “No Hate” set up a petition two weeks ago to stop Milo from speaking, claiming his words “hurt people” and even “kill.” The petition also said the name of Milo’s tour included a “homophobic slur.” Thankfully, this was rejected by university President Dennis Holtschneider. However, it seems that the DePaul administrators realised that cancelling the event outright would cause a media firestorm. According to Brendan Newell, Chairman Emeritus of the College Republicans at DePaul, the university first attempted to limit the amount of people coming to the event, slashing the numbers down from 550 to 250. After a struggle with the administration, it was agreed that the original guest size would be permitted, but that they would require 15 security guards instead of 8, ramping up the security costs by $840. Newell noted that this treatment is unfair, as left-wing groups can flaunt regulations but those on the right have to jump through hoops in order to set up an event. (Breitbart)

Alex Jones Wants To Be A Dog.

(...) Both the police and the university’s Bias Incident Response Team are investigating the stated belief that only two genders exist, male and female, as a hate crime. A Loyola alumni office employee discussed her views on sexual orientation, which align with the Roman Catholic Church, with students who were hanging up posters on the subject on April 14. Cosette Carleo, one of the students involved, told The College Fix in a phone interview that the hate crime under investigation is “denying transgenderism.” Carleo’s account agrees in part with an email by the husband of the employee with whom she tangled. The employee told Carleo, who identifies as gender-neutral, that only two genders exist, male and female, according to the student. Carleo told The Fix that statement was the hate crime. Carleo responded that “you can have your opinion” as long as it doesn’t “deny my existence.” (More)

Cry-baby social justice warriors had no ‘safe space’ to retreat to after #TheTriggering began trending on Twitter and millions of leftists were exposed to some politically incorrect home truths. The echo chamber of social media and the use of mass block lists normally ensures that precious snowflake SJWs rarely have their stupid ideas challenged – which is probably a good thing for them since they have now started demanding counseling whenever someone disagrees with their opinion. However, a growing army of libertarians, conservatives and actual liberals who believe in free speech are becoming increasingly strident in their opposition to how a growing culture of censorship is beginning to pollute academia and public discourse. From trigger warnings, to safe spaces, to the effort to re-define criticism, satire and merely disagreeing with someone’s opinion as “harassment” and “abuse,” the cultural backlash against the new face of authoritarianism is accelerating. (...) Twitter itself has responded in kind, shadow-banning and outright censoring conservatives for having the wrong political opinions. (Source) No surprise then that Twitter is already trying to censor the hashtag itself. (...) Here’s what will happen next; If the media dares to even cover this, they will ignore the 99.99% of smart #TheTriggering tweets and instead focus on the tiny fraction of tweets from white supremacists that are actually racist. (...) View a selection of the best #TheTriggering tweets below and be sure to head over to Twitter to contribute some of your own.

Apr 1, 2016 In Response To Campus Lunacy by Emory University Students Terrified By "Trump 2016" watch #TheChalkening

UPDATE: After #TheTriggering (scroll down), #TheChalkening The video so far has drawn over 6,000 views on YT and 20,000 views on Twitter in just 24 hours. Huge efforts to control people's mind, language and behavior in the end triggers huge reactions. An entire movement has sprung over the last few months against political correctness in general and social justice warriors in particular. Milo explains it all in a detailed primer on the the Alt Right, or Natural Conservatism. For the sake of good order, the editors neither agree with the analysis, nor the content. We do however agree with the conclusion that the Alt Right must be seen in the light that "for decades, the concerns of those who cherish western culture have been openly ridiculed and dismissed as racist. The alt-right is the inevitable result. No matter how silly, irrational, tribal or even hateful the Establishment may think the alt-right’s concerns are, they can’t be ignored, because they aren’t going anywhere (...) the Left can’t language-police and name-call them away, which have for the last twenty years been the only progressive responses to dissent, and the Right can’t snobbishly dissociate itself from them and hope they go away either.

An Establishment Conservative’s Guide To The Alt-Right. 

A specter is haunting the dinner parties, fundraisers and think-tanks of the Establishment: the specter of the “alternative right.” Young, creative and eager to commit secular heresies, they have become public enemy number one to beltway conservatives — more hated, even, than Democrats or loopy progressives. The alternative right, more commonly known as the alt-right, is an amorphous movement. Some — mostly Establishment types — insist it’s little more than a vehicle for the worst dregs of human society: anti-Semites, white supremacists, and other members of the Stormfront set. They’re wrong. Previously an obscure subculture, the alt-right burst onto the national political scene in 2015. Although initially small in number, the alt-right has a youthful energy and jarring, taboo-defying rhetoric that have boosted its membership and made it impossible to ignore. (Source)

Postmodern snowflakes are demanding safe spaces where they are insulated from reality. 

The Left has an entire tool kit of tricks to control us. They use it to control our behavior, they use it to control our minds, and they use it to control our speech. With invariable success. We voluntary self censure for fear of retribution: either for being suspended on social media as the most innocent form of punishment, or for legal prosecution against free speech, the most pernicious way of shutting down the opposition.

Legal means are primarily an European problem. Free speech in the US in the public realm is largely protected by the First Amendment. It's place in the hierarchy of freedoms is no accident. Free speech is a basic precondition for the Enlightenment culture. Without the liberty to pursue error and criticize any idea, any religious system, or school of thought, not even science would be possible.

But apart from legal action, note that the vast majority of shut-up tricks occurs in the public arena. The tool kit is based on group think and mass psychology. It appeals to the tribesman in all of us. We fear being ostracized, to be cast out and shunned. 

In a sense this is good news. It means that the defense against it can also be found in the field of psychology and that resistance against it is possible. We are not entirely helpless, if we are willing to put in some effort. 

Resisting the pomo bullies requires adopting a different mentality. We have been conditioned to a mindset and a view of man that is open to this kind of group coercion. We have to start in the basement, in the foundation of our mind. This means we have to go back to basics.

It starts with the way we perceive the world. The postmodern world does not acknowledge a right or a wrong way of doing things. In a broader sense, this means there's also no morality, good or evil, or even truth, or reality.

In the pomo world nothing is objective; it depends on the position relative to something else. This is a basic mistake. There's ample objective proof for this, but this is not the place for debunking pomo. Just accept it as a given for now.

Ayn Rand has written extensively about morality. She has offered us this:
Since reason is man's basic means of survival, that which is proper to the life of a rational being is the good; that which negates, opposes or destroys it is the evil. The standard of value (...) by which one judges what is good or evil—is man's life, or that which is required for man's survival. 
Thinking is man's only basic virtue from which all the others proceed. And his basic vice, the source of all his evils, is (...) blanking out, the willful suspension of one's consciousness, the refusal to think—not blindness, but the refusal to see; not ignorance, but the refusal to know. 
It is the act of unfocusing your mind and inducing an inner fog to escape the responsibility of judgment—on the unstated premise that a thing will not exist if only you refuse to identify it, that A will not be A so long as you do not pronounce the verdict "It is".  
Evil is not a value, it is an absence and a negation, evil is impotent and has no power but that which we let it extort from us. Evil is impotent, evil is the irrational, the blind, the anti-real. The only weapon of its triumph is the willingness of the good to serve it. 
The spread of evil is the symptom of a vacuum. Whenever evil wins, it is only by default: by the moral failure of those who evade the fact that there can be no compromise on basic principles. In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit. (Source)
If evil is the absence of good, and the good is man's means of survival -- his reason -- our best defense against evil is thinking and common sense. It means none other than applying reason to reality. If the idea of evil as the absence of good is still eluding you, watch this short video about Albert Einstein (just ignore the theology if you're an atheist). It's an entirely different way of looking at the Universe. 

Observers will have noted that the postmodern mind is fueled by the opposite: by feelings, by the irrational. Postmodern activists define the means at their disposal in the took kit as, "irrational means of the will". Which is an accurate description of  the tamper tandrums, the personal attacks, the fake outrage and demands not to be offended, the demonizations and the character assassinations of opponents.

What we are literally facing here, are the psychological tactics of grown up, spoiled children whose mental development has been arrested at the age of a toddler. (Read here how that works.) We must treat them as such. Responding to them, merely feeds the notion that the tactic works. It is therefore an encouragement!

The sooner we refuse to let this tactic influence our thoughts, speech and behavior, the better it will be for everyone. Stop feeding the trolls! We will see that as soon as they understand they have lost their power over us, they will shift their tactics elsewhere. Keep them on their toes, keep them on the defensive. Psy-ops is a real weapon in the information war.

Please understand that the pomo bullies are resistant to reason and rational arguments. Since they deny objective truth, any debate with a social justice warrior is a fight over personal preference. You can't debate which color is better: green or blue.

The exercise in dishonesty usually ends in "go ahead, you'll lose anyway" or words to that effect. Since their aim is winning by any means and at any price, they'll never, ever concede. So, save yourself some time, effort and nerves and stop trying!

Since social justice warriors have only two basic modes: or they are at your feet, or at your throat. Either you verbally destroy them completely, or you raise the old middle finger and ignore the mental toddler altogether! See what works for you in what way. Good luck!

Background article

June 16, 2015


Nearly 100 years ago, Walter Lippmann wrote about “the manufacture of consent” in his classic work, “Public Opinion.” On the heels of that book, Edward Bernays penned a little volume called “Propaganda,” in which he stated that an elite would always be responsible for making the public aware of “new ideas” which the public would then act upon as the elite nudged them into it. Related, but more in-depth is Jacques Ellul’s 1962 book, “Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s Attitudes.” Political propaganda aims to mobilize the masses to move an agenda forward. That’s most effectively done when the masses are unaware of the process. It’s what “community organizers” work towards, whether they know it or not. Once the masses are mobilized to push for a cause, the propagandists’ goals can be put into law. (...) One of the best books that cracks the code on what we are living through was written by Dutch psychiatrist Joost A. M. Meerloo about 60 years ago. Mull over the first line of his book’s forward, and you will think he is writing about today:
“This book attempts to depict the strange transformation of the free human mind into an automatically responding machine – a transformation which can be brought about by some of the cultural undercurrents in our present-day society as well as by deliberate experiments in the service of a political ideology.” (Source)
