Hey, did you know Milo Yiannapoulos is a Nazi? No, really:
Milo Yiannapoulos is a gay Jew who can’t seem to go more than five minutes without mentioning that he loves sucking black cock. He has openly and repeatedly disavowed white nationalism, especially the “14/88” crowd.
If that’s not a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, my friends, then I don’t know who is.
Alt-realists who have read their Orwell know that Lefties are duckspeakers. Duckspeak, in case you’ve forgotten, is the thoughtless recitation of rote phrases in place of real communication. It’s what we call “virtue-signalling” — whether it’s praise of Big Brother, proclaiming the science settled, calling a gay Jew a Nazi, or whatever, the speaker’s just trying to keep the Thought Police off his back. It is, in fact, anti-communication, and it’s designed to be — Newspeak, which is just systematized Political Correctness, prevents forbidden thoughts by removing the vocabulary to express them.
You can see a good example of it here. Observe the troll collective “Zachriel” freak out as Morgan, Phil, and I try to hash out a Left/Right distinction that doesn’t involve who sat where in the Estates General back in the 18th century. Admittedly they’re an extreme example of an extremely weird breed, but when you skim it you’ll quickly see that they cling to the old’n’busted “definitions” because that allows them to assign all virtues to the Left, and all vices to the Right.
See also here, re: The Great Magic Party Switch of 1964 (scroll up if you need more context) — again, I’m only picking on these particular weirdos because they illustrate the point so clearly. The Democrats can’t have been the party of Jim Crow, because that would make them racists, and that doesn’t compute. No no, it’s the Republicans who were, are, and always shall be the racists… and so you get the fascinating contention that the guys who freed the slaves, seated a bunch of freedmen in Congress, passed all the civil rights legislation in American history (including the sainted Civil Rights Act of 1964), all over the strenuous (and, from 1861-65, armed) resistance of the Democrats…. these guys were the real racists. Because Right-wingers.
Duckspeak. You can’t possibly maintain that the Democrats were the liberals in the Gilded Age, just as you can’t possibly maintain that a gay Jew is a Nazi. The only meaning those statements could ever convey is: “I’m a goodthinker; please don’t throw me in Room 101 and strap rats to my face.”
Which works. The Left have become so programmed by Newspeak, their cognitive capacities so pared down by their tiny, arcane vocabulary, that you can’t argue with them. Back them into all the semantic, historical, and logical corners you want; they’ll never stop quacking, because they can’t. They’re New Soviet Men. Their brains have been rewired (literally rewired, to use one of their favorite quacky modifiers).
So how do we fix their wiring?
I suggest work. An honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay, in a job where words have to mean what they mean in order to get the job done. Morgan talks about this all the time re: coding — a successful software engineer, or any kind of engineer for that matter, needs to build things that work, so their definitions have to be clear, precise, and universally applicable. You can’t virtue-signal with math, because 2+2 will still equal 4 even if Hitler says it, and will never equal 5 even if Mother Theresa, Gandhi, and the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Junior all swear to it.
Work has worked wonders with the liberals I knew in college. Admittedly this was quite a while ago — the PC pathology is far more advanced now — but simple practice at communicating in apolitical terms really helped them. Throw in typical adult responsibilities like car payments, mortgages, kids, and the like, and there’s a limit to how liberal one can be… sure, sure, they’ll still mouth social justice platitudes from time to time, but that’s more nostalgia for the good ol’ college days than anything else. They know how to bend to reality, because feminism won’t fix your car and you can’t fob off a deadline with a pious sermon about intersectionality.
If that means shutting down all the Starbucks and making “unpaid internships” a felony, well, so be it. But it’s the only humane way.
