A realization of utter failure?
Hey, Richard, at least read this. Even if you disagree with its premises and conclusions 100%, at least by formulating why you think it is wrong it will assist in your course correction and redirection.
More fundamentally: any strategy and every event needs to be very, very carefully planned, with every contingency covered.
With all your talk of having “fun” at events, don’t you guys get it yet? It’s war; it is not supposed to be “fun.” If you want to have access to the public space, which you are being denied by FORCE, you need to use EQUAL OR SUPERIOR FORCE to take back your “right” to access that space. If the opposition is “willing to go more far” in their actions than you or any other group, they win and you lose.
And, yes, it’s true, Antifa is being protected and enabled by the Establishment. Now, who is in charge of Federal law enforcement in America? Donald J. Trump and Jeff Sessions. Think about that. Think carefully: during the Obama administration, would Far Right groups have been allowed to openly (illegally wearing masks by the way) engage in domestic terrorism? Would Far Right groups have been allowed to openly organize on campuses, armed and dangerous? Would Far Right groups have been allowed to intimidate non-Whites moving into White neighborhoods?
Yet, Trump and Sessions allow Antifa to run wild in the streets, they allow Far Left armed groups to form on campuses, and they allow the Far Left to intimidate and attack Whites who “gentrify” non-White neighborhoods.
Who is the real enemy here?
So, I will agree with the excuse that it’s not really Alt Right vs. Antifa, it is Alt Right vs. Antifa + Establishment, with Trump and Sessions being on the side of Antifa (their unwillingness to perform their law enforcement role is functionally equivalent to complicity with the Far Left).
This is a tough nut to crack – the institutional racism against Whites, structural racism against European-Americans, the fact that Antifa is indirectly and implicitly supported by the entire American Establishment, including “fascist bigots” (sic) like Trump and Sessions.
At the very least, the Alt Right should have enough decency and self-respect to call a spade a spade and “call out” the ultra-leftist, White-hating Trump and his buffoonish, inept Attorney General for conspiring with the Far Left to deprive White Americans of their constitutional right of public assembly. That would not, of course, solve the problem, but it would at least name the problem, recognize the problem, and you cannot solve any problem that you are unable to even recognize.
The God Emperor is functionally equivalent to Head Bolshevik and Mr. Magoo Howdy Doody is also complicit, through his utter and complete inaction, with the Far Left’s domestic terrorism.
While Spencer attempts to figure out what to do next, why doesn’t he at least mentally toughen up and admit the facts of the case?
In a real sense, following this line of argument to its logical conclusion, Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions are the de facto leaders of Antifa. If not them, then who? If they wanted, Trump and Sessions could solve all of Spencer’s problems overnight, and only by strictly following the letter of the law, simply by doing their jobs and fulfilling their minimal obligations. That’s not even being “pro-Nazi” – it’s simply them stopping putting their thumbs on the scale in favor of Antifa. But they refuse to do so. It’s doesn’t really matter why – it matters what. And the reality of what is, as stated: Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions are the de facto leaders of Antifa
Two brief final points.
First, readers of this blog will question why I bother to give advice to Spencer and the Alt Right, since I have expressed my opposition to the Alt Right “movement.”
My answer is simple. On a personal level, I’m a disinterested actor here. I don’t care about “movement personalities” as people, one way or the other; I have nothing invested in personal feuds (of which we know of several currently extant in Der Movement). My interest is solely focused on ideas and actions and how these people influence ideas and actualize those idea through action. I have no personal ambition to be any Grand Poohbah or Fearless Leader in Der Movement; in any case, those roles are strictly apportioned through Der Movement Affirmative Action Program, from which I am barred. Thus, if any “movement” personality actually shapes up and starts doing well, then I’ll support them and more power to them. If they screw up, if they promote maladaptive, destructive ideas, then I’ll criticize them. I give advice to be helpful, in the forlorn hope that someday one of these heroes will actually listen.
And my approach – judging people based on their ideas and actions – is better than the way they do things – which is to judge ideas and actions based on what they think of the people who espouse them. For example, after the Johnson-Spencer feud became “hot,” mysteriously Johnson became a rabid ethnonationalist with an anti-Russian flavor, while Spencer’s previously tolerant attitude toward homosexuality suddenly vanished. All a coincidence, I guess.
Second, I would suggest that those on the Far Right have long memories. If and when the wheel turns, and the power shifts more in our direction, we should be as intolerant to the Left as they are to us. No – more so, since we have Truth and Justice on our side. Everything they do now should be returned with interest, returned a thousand-fold.
Addendum: Does being “selective” (something is better than nothing) contribute at least to some extent to what was a minor success?
Of course, that’s an order of magnitude less selectivity than is needed.
