Vox Day suggests this as the motto of the Alt-Right, and responds as such to this guy:
After the election I went to one of my favourite thinkers, Jonathon Haidt. This recent video of him inspired me to try to reach out to Trump supporters via Twitter and try to genuinely understand and empathise with them, and perhaps in turn have them empathise with me. After a couple of days of that I’ve all but given up, having repeatedly bashed my head against the brick wall of Infowars, international Jewish Globalist conspiracy, and a well that is now permanently poisoned against anything from the liberal intellectual tradition.
I’m not a real big fan of Vox Day, but he’s dead on here. Cry me a river, sweetheart.
Not to get all Bolshevik on y’all, but History doesn’t care about ideologies, any more than it cares about feelings. The so-called “Alt Right” isn’t; it’s old-school ethno-nationalism, which from 1648 to 1919 was simply called “politics.” Have a look at England’s wars, starting from the 16th century. What were the ideological issues there, would you say? “We’re at war, boys; let’s stick it to the wogs for Good King ___” pretty much covers it, every single time.
None of which is pleasant, I’ll admit. I myself am sick to death of hearing about the Jewish Globalist conspiracy, and consider it gibbering lunacy. But you know what? I. Don’t. Care. anymore. The Left doesn’t spend one single second reining in its lunatics, and the Left has brought America to the brink of ruin. Bill Ayers, just to take one of a zillion examples, is an honest-to-God domestic terrorist with American blood on his hands. Not only did the Left not care that he and Obama were close personal buddies, they actually thought it was pretty cool. And I’m supposed to get all worked up that some guy on the internet allegedly said some mean things about Jews?
Since the Left fucking loves science, I’ll list the empirically testable conditions under which I will care about the so-called “extremists” of the self-labelled “Alt-Right:”
— When one single solitary prominent Leftist calls on his co-religionists to stop protesting Trump’s election, as “accepting election results is the cornerstone of our democracy.”
— When one single solitary member of the punditocracy denounces anti-white violence committed by Black Lives Matter, because “that’s not who we are.”
When all the idiots calling for the abolition of the Electoral College admit that Bill Clinton didn’t win the popular vote either, and begin decrying Clinton’s 8 year reign of terror as an illegitimate usurpation of the people’s sacred will.
— When one single unhinged celebrity who pledged to leave the country if Donald Trump were elected actually does so.
Until then, I. Don’t. Care.
[Re: Clinton’s wins in 92 and 96, I stand corrected, thanks to reader Captain Crunch. I meant “didn’t win 50% of the popular vote,” which effectively rebuts the Left’s whining about how “more than half the country doesn’t want Trump as president!” But as written, I look like a moron].Loading Likes...
