It was the Z Man, I’m pretty sure, who suggested that Post-America could well end up looking a lot like The Troubles in Northern Ireland. I didn’t think so at the time — I thought that if the “muh gunz” crowd were going to do anything besides talk, they’d have done it already — but after the events of 1/6 and the murder of Ashli Babbitt by the Uniparty’s thugs, I’d like to revise and extend my remarks.
First, may God forbid! If Americans ever do decide to do “armed struggle,” they’ll form an organization so brutally instrumentalist, it’ll make the Provos look like a pack of Girl Scouts. It’s like I’ve been saying about Fascism, capital-F, for years — if real Americans ever decide to give it a try, you’ll fucking well know it, since when White Americans get serious about something they go all the way, right away, and bend all their world-class, apex-of-human-ingenuity talents to the task of wrecking your shit. Ask Hitler and Tojo how that worked out.
One obvious objection to this is that Her Majesty’s forces, for all the wicked, illegal shit they got up to, were at least constrained by the vestiges of Western Civilization. Obviously the Bidenreich, being composed of “people” (in the strict biological sense) who either never were part of Western Civ, or who actively hate it, will have no such scruples. That’s true, of course, but there’s a limit to how brutal even the most brutal counterinsurgency can be, before it starts aiding and abetting the insurgents with its sheer hamfisted evil.
Which ties into, and answers, a second objection. I’m by no means an expert on this stuff — my knowledge of Ireland consists of a brief drunken vacation right after college, and some old family stories — but you don’t have to be a COIN collector to know that one of the reasons the Provos (and the INLA and the “Real IRA” and the “Official IRA” and all the rest, God alone can keep them straight) could survive for so long is that they existed within organic communities. There were “republican” families, going all the way back to Wolfe Tone, if not the guys who fought against Henry II, and everyone knew who they were. Ditto for the loyalists. Obviously America, enstupidated with social media and enervated by soulless urban bugmen, doesn’t have that…
Except that a) the vast American hinterland is actually far more organic than soulless urban bugmen imagine, and b) even soulless urban bugmen have a “community” of sorts. Imagine, if you will, that your next door neighbor in the apartment complex is a drug dealer. Actually I don’t have to imagine this. I spent my first decade or so out of college in the vast urban wasteland where I grew up, living the bugman life, and my next door neighbor for the first few of those years actually was a drug dealer. To be fair, I never actually saw him selling drugs. But everyone knew that Barry, let’s call him, was a shady dude who was up to shady shit. It truly did not surprise me, or anyone else in the building, when the cops showed up at Barry’s door late one night.
But that’s the thing: none of us was surprised. As in, we all knew, even though we were all soulless urban careerists. We also know what happened to Barry, which was: nothing. The cops had nothing on Barry but suspicions. Nor could any of us have told them anything, even if we wanted to, because even though we all knew Barry was a drug dealer, none of us had ever seen it. Finally, none of us really wanted to narc on him, not from fear of reprisals, but because we had a community of sorts and we all knew that Barry wasn’t a bad guy. Shady, yeah. Not trustworthy, certainly. But a cool enough guy for all that. Why did we care how he made his extra money? He didn’t have people coming to his place at all hours. He kept to himself. No “street” shit ever happened in our building, so what’s the harm?
If that’s true of bugmen like we were, and a goof like Barry was, imagine how it is with serious people.
And while it’s true that the cops could’ve gone full NKVD on Barry — as the Bidenreich’s Negro Kangz Vengeance Department surely will — that would’ve been counterproductive. Nothing is more likely to turn people off the law than hamfisted repression… except hamfisted repression that the State’s security forces fuck up, which, being Diverse and Millennials to boot, they surely will. Imagine if they’d gone in guns blazing on Barry… and didn’t get him.
I can’t say this is the future, but I wouldn’t bet against it. Just in case you weren’t terrified enough this morning…Loading Likes...
