The New Fascism: The Rise of the #WokeSupremacists

Tuesday, June 9th, 2020

Klan, Bolsheviks, Brownshirts, BLM, Antifa: Political Thugs in History – Lineage of the Woke Supremacists

One of the things about the statists of the left is that they will always seek to disguise what they’re doing by using mislabeling, often even resorting to complete opposites. When they create some new piece of legislation that will be expensive and wreck the nation’s healthcare funding systems, they call it the “Affordable Care Act.” In truth, there’s nothing affordable about it, nor could they give a damn about the results for the American people.  This is their pattern.  Take something egregious, give it a nice-sounding name, and try to push it as far as possible in the name of their agenda.  This is true of their cohorts in Antifa.  These cowardly thugs claim to be anti-fascists, but in truth, they are imposing their own brand of the doctrine.  All dissent will be demolished.  All dissenters will be attacked.  If you love your liberties, they will happily work like demons to strip you of them, all while claiming to act in the name of liberty.  It’s a cynical, worn-out ploy, but it’s effective because the media, largely staffed with their ideological brethren, are only too happy to give them cover in the press. This is why we’ve been pretending violent riots and looting were really just “mostly peaceful protests.” This is why we’re now being told that “some violence can be good.”  This Orwellian doublespeak is the norm for the raging left, but it has recently taken on a new dimension.  They are using the social media giants’ platforms, along with the public sphere generally, to spread a new form of fascism by social pressuring. While they’ll never admit that they’re instituting a new form of facism, in the disguise of being “Woke,” they are now demanding, often with violence, threats, and vandalism that you join them or face the consequences.  Their views are superior, don’t you know, and they’re happy to prod you, cajole you, and bludgeon you into joining their “Woke Supremacy.”

This isn’t the first time a form of supremacy has come to light. We’ve seen it all before. Most often, it’s been racially or ethnically defined.  Occasionally, it’s been religiously defined. There is always some radical group somewhere willing to use violence and its threat to gain compliance of populations.  Now is no different, except that in this case, it’s purely ideological.  Yes, they’re using race as one of their cudgels, but if you listen carefully, you’ll notice that much of what they’re talking about is “privilege.” Not simply “white privilege,” as you’ve undoubtedly heard, but “privilege” alone.  The irony to which so many of these violent-minded loons seem oblivious is that many of them, a horde of them, have arisen from privilege.  Many of them are college-educated, though they seemed to have skipped all classical aspects of an education.  They seem instead to have been indoctrinated with all the agenda-driven schools of thought so popular on today’s radical campuses.  The 1960s and 1970s produced many radical leftist professors, who now run our institutions of higher education, which they have converted into indoctrination camps for American youth.  Their work was completed when they succeeded in seeding this into primary education through the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s.  Public schools are now a cesspool of this kind of wretched, useless, non-educational “education.”

For two generations now, they have been building a new fascist model, by which universities have been converted from havens for free speech, expression and thought, to utter quagmires of doctrinaire submission to a new orthodoxy from which there is no feasible means of dissent but pure silence and complete avoidance. Even this last strategy is now failed for serious students on our wickedly corrupt campuses now.  What they’ve been taught is that to reject all privilege requires that they abandon all their freedoms, but demand the subservience of others.  Their leaders prescribe the solutions, and they dutifully carry them out. If you oppose them, they’ll first try simple peer-pressure tactics. Those will give way to more focused social-shunning, and eventually to isolation and attack. You can accept the “Woke” theory of the day, or you will be punished, sometimes with a brick to the head. They are willing to use violent, and while most of their number reduce themselves to the state of unthinking brutes who simply follow the mob and echo its sentiments, the truth is that there exists a radical core that is the leader of the foot-soldiers, who coordinate attacks, put forward strategies, and otherwise drive the mob. Most of these young people are simply naive, foolish tools.  They want so badly to be part of something, and tremble at the thought of exclusion and isolation that they’ll do anything for the mob to which they belong.

In the end though, it’s just the same as it’s ever been: They believe themselves superior, not by virtue of their race or their sex or their relative wealth, but by their willingness to serve the interests of the “Woke” mob. You’re being misled if you’ve come to believe this is a passing fad.  Just as Trump’s army of supporters is really an outgrowth of the Tea Party of a decade ago, so too is Antifa just an augmented, repurposed continuation of the Occupiers who arose soon after.  It’s really the same war, in one sense, though the left has managed to indoctrinate your children, sometimes to violence, but almost uniformly against you.  The day is coming, if these new Woke Supremacists have their way, that the war will be fought, young against old, with the simple aim of relieving you of your freedoms, your property and wealth, and ultimately your lives.  Take this threat seriously, because it is real, and it’s coming for you. It’s coming for those of your children they’ve not yet corrupted and indoctrinated.  If you love them, get them out of the public schools.  Get them away from these people who will use them to attack you.

This new brand of fascism, disguised as some sort of civil rights movement, is really just another adjunct of the radical left. I do not an cannot support Black Lives Matters because I believe all lives matter, and I believe that all lives are endowed with unalienable rights. This isn’t a game.  What these radicals now demand is a wholesale disassembly of our entire system of law and government.  I reject their demands, whether issued through a bullhorn, the waving of a club, or at the point of a gun.  If they wish to take our country from us, I for one will fight, and I will fight with all I have, and all I can muster, along with all my countrymen who will turn out to stand with me.  This is not a game, and despite their contentions, I have been “woke” for a very long time, though not in the way they intend it.  I will not submit.  I will not surrender.  I will not genuflect for thugs.  I will not lay down my arms, and I will not yield.  If those of you who beg for peace wish to pretend to yourselves that it can be had cheaply or without effort or risk, you have deluded yourselves.  It is time that you cast off the false “truths” these wretched monster utter, unthinkingly and and with undue venom.

Now, today, the Army has let it be known they are considering stripping the names of confederate heroes from Army bases, including Ft. Hood, Texas. I absolutely disagree with this, and while the confederacy served an unjust purpose, many of its warriors were valorous men, irrespective of what we might now think of the politics of the day.  The idea that we would now bend our knees to these sorts of demands are simply more symbolic gestures intended to mollify a crowd that will not be turned aside by such gestures. It’s time to understand that this new “Woke Supremacy” is just the same old tyranny and anarchy in disguise.  We must say no.  Not everything in our culture can be up for negotiation. No! NO!

People must steel themselves for what is to come. The statists now marching under the banners of BLM and Antifa are merely the brown-shirts of our age. You are right to fear them. They have their sights set on you, your freedoms, your property, and ultimately, your lives. Reject it.  Reject it at all costs. If your children are to endure, we must now act to save our nation, or lay down and submit, surrendering it for many generations.  This is the United States of America, and this, I’ll defend.

Betrayal: How American Youth Have Been Abandoned

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

Last week, a collection of Democrats introduced something they’ve dubbed the Green New Deal.  Sounding innocuous to those who have accepted the original “New Deal” of FDR, it was assumed that this legislation would merely provide some updates(as if the original wasn’t horrendous enough.)  Instead, it contains provisions that responsible adults would call “preposterous,” or “fanciful,” or even “maniacal.”  Despite this fact, many of the would-be Democrat contenders for the presidency in 2020 raced out to latch onto it, endorsing it explicitly, or at the very least, endorsing most or all of its alleged aims.  What’s most amazing to me is how thoroughly we have betrayed our youth by letting these sorts of things get so out of hand.  The “Green New Deal” isn’t flawed, or farcical, or foolish.  It is the ultimate expression of statism’s true goals.  If implemented, it would accomplish the one thing that the radical left has wanted to enact for more than a century, but it is also the one thing the American people have been too innocently naive to believe the left could truly want: It is the legislation that would make human life in the United States impossible to live, and its chief public advocates are our young.  None will suffer more for the attainment of this green nightmare, but having been thoroughly betrayed, they’re too foolishly naive to know it.

This set of fiendish notions isn’t a collection of naive ideas propagated by childish intellectual rejects.  This is a collection of ideas that has been intentionally crafted so as to appear too foolishly farcical to ever take seriously, but every word of it is what they actually intend. Every word. Its original version was so honest that on Friday, it had been withdrawn, to be replaced by a slightly watered-down version, but the truth is that if they ever achieve sufficient power to enact such a law, they will, and they will do it because they hate human life, they have been educated to hate America, and they intend to destroy it in order to punish Americans.

This is not a joke.  None of this is tongue-in-cheek.  These people hate you.  They’re so thoroughly hateful that they’re willing to commit suicide on a societal scale in order to punish you for the ills they believe exist.  The saddest part of this is that all the things they’ve been indoctrinated to believe in our public schools and universities is absolute nonsense.  We turned education over to the worst nut-jobs in academia two generations ago, and they have built a kingdom in which this kind of garbage is considered normal.  If you send your children to a public school, since at least 1980, after the creation of the Federal Department of Education, your children have been affected.  They’ve been exposed.  Unless you spent an hour or more deprogramming them faithfully every evening, or simply withdrew them from public schools, there’s no chance that they have avoided being propagandized to their own detriment to some extent.

If the Green New Deal is ridiculous, then the Frequently Asked Questions document that accompanied it is the height of villainy, although some will contend that it seems like a college prank. Here are both the documents, from the NPR page linked above, placed here for your convenience:

        
Among other things, this FAQ outlines more of their intentions, including “building on” FDR’s “Second Bill of Rights” (effectively, the communist agenda for America), by guaranteeing the following:

  • A job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security
  • High-quality education, including higher education and trade schools
  • Clean air and water and access to nature
  • Healthy food
  • High-quality health care
  • Safe, affordable, adequate housing
  • Economic environment free of monopolies
  • Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work

That’s right, you read it correctly: “for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”  According to Governor Palin’s website, one of the Democrats who introduced this garbage has taken down the FAQ due to the “unwilling” business. Too much honesty isn’t a good thing, if you’re a leftist.

We are already largely a socialistic country, despite President Trump’s recent assurances that the USA will avoid that fate.  We print money like a socialist country, we monetize our debts like a socialist country, and we provide ludicrous welfare benefits and commodities just like a socialist country.  In fact, the only things necessary to convert the USA to a complete communist slave-pit like the USSR would be to compel labor at the point of governments’ guns. You might contend that we still have freedom of movement. I would respond simply by pointing to the pair of documents linked above, wherein you will find that their intention is to completely eliminate air travel and 99% of privately-owned cars and trucks within a decade.  How’s your freedom of movement looking if that tidbit is implemented? You’re under surveillance every moment of your day.  Your smart-phones microphones are actively monitoring(and at times recording) whatever you do.  Your other “smart” devices are spying on you as well.  The companies that collect this data sell that data to others for the purpose of advertising, and they also sell it to government.  In many cases, government collects it directly, also.  What part of an infernal communistic slave-state doesn’t yet exist in America?  You are taxed on your labors to pay for the lack of labor on the part of others. You provide food, clothing, housing, commodities, utilities, transportation, and healthcare to people who cannot do so for themselves, but much more frequently, who are unwilling to do so themselves.

Our young have been propagandized into thinking this is normal, right, and proper.  They’ve been taught that it’s moral.

Our young people have been betrayed.  They haven’t been taught the difference between right and wrong in the way we were taught, so that the resulting  vacuum has drawn in an ethos that is in direct conflict with traditional American values.  They have been deprived, all too often, of the simple but necessary skill of critical thinking.  The list of things to be guaranteed by the “Green New Deal” are preposterous, of course, but they don’t generally see them as such; what is self-evident to you and I about the absurdity of guaranteeing “Clean air and water and access to nature” doesn’t strike them as unusual at all. They don’t see anything wrong with it because they’ve don’t know why nobody can guarantee any such thing. “Economic security for all…” is something they think they can mandate.  They don’t understand that no government on Earth can guarantee such a thing in the long run, which of course means they can’t guarantee it at all. Even the idea of “guaranteeing” a “high quality education” should be as dubious as anything else on the list, because as you and I are well aware, we can send students to all the best schools with all the best faculty but none of that can overcome the student’s unwillingness to learn.  Anybody who can permit themselves to believe this list of preposterous, foolish, and even undesirable “guarantees” hasn’t the ability to evaluate even the utility of any of this.

Ladies and gentlemen, we can laugh and mock the poor fools who believe this “Green New Deal,” but that misses the point. The fact that this foolishness is so wildly obnoxious to the entire body of human knowledge gained since the enlightenment makes no difference to a tribe of primitives who don’t know or care about the enlightenment in the first instance.  Far too many of our young have been left in a state of feral, atavistic savages, among whom logic and syllogisms have no meaning and no weight.  I have a hard time blaming them, knowing the sort of monsters to whom their minds have been too frequently entrusted.  What strikes me is that this had been described all too well five decades ago:

If men have grasped some faint glimmer of respect for individual rights in their private dealings with one another, that glimmer vanishes when they turn to public issues – and what leaps into the political arena is a caveman who can’t conceive of any reason why the tribe may not bash in the skull of any individual if it so desires. – The Objectivist Ethics in The Virtue of Selfishness – Ayn Rand

The situation in which we find our nation is far more dangerous than most dare whisper.  We have young people who have been preyed-upon by a statist fifth column that has converted them into the instrument of their own, and our own destruction.  The children who will bring us this “Green New Deal” are the tools, the instruments who will be made into a terrible weapon against us, just as was done in other places and times throughout history, particularly in the twentieth century.  This “Green New Deal” is evidence of our moral abandonment of them.  It’s our job to reclaim them if we can.  If we lose them permanently, we may well discover that we’ve likewise lost ourselves.
