Decius Responds to Critics of "The Flight 93 Election" - American Greatness. Reposted with permission from The Claremont Review of Books. Well, that was unexpected. Everything I said in “The Flight 93 Election” was derivative of things I had already said, with (I thought) more vim and vigor, in a now-defunct blog. I assumed the new piece would interest a handful of that blog’s remaining fans and no one else. My predictive powers proved imperfect. Which should cheer everyone who hated what I said: if I was wrong about the one thing, maybe I’m wrong about the others. First is the objection to anonymity and specifically to the pseudonym.
Second is the objection to my invoking Flight 93. Some also complained about the aptness of the analogy: the plane crashed! A third objection is that Trump is immoderate in the Aristotelian, or personal, sense and I don’t take that into sufficient account. For this objection to be decisive, Trump’s personal immoderation would have to be on a level that aspires to tyrannical rule.
A point from the earlier essay is worth repeating. Alex Jones Melts Globalists over Terror: Mind-Controlled Media Sacrificing the West for Islam » Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind! Alex Jones of Infowars.com launched into an epic rant during his Monday show denouncing the media and global elites for sacrificing Western civilization to radical Islam.
Jones opened his monologue by saying: I’m just so angry right now. I’m really so fundamentally angry with the media — how deceptive they are, what traitors they are, how low they are. Hillary — all of you — are just sickening horrible people… You have to work to be such scum, and I’m so sick of you, and I’m so sick of some of the general public that still sits there. It’s like that Perino lady during the Bush press conference – or during one of those White House press conferences. She was sitting there, and they said, “Is it true the dollar’s down and that’s why oil prices are blah, blah, blah?” Imagine that! The West is only a destabilization program right now. Fox is where MSNBC was 23 years ago. Hollywood runs the U.S., and they hate Christians. “Do you understand it’s an attack? As a parting salvo, he said: Esoteric Populism. Editor's Note: This article was published at Social Matter here. Populism has long been a dirty word to neoreactionaries, but this disdain misses a certain hidden element to populist movements, one that at its core sows the seeds for building a new elite and restoring hierarchy.
There is an esoteric element to populism we ought to keep in mind and exploit for our own goals. Reading a hidden meaning into mass movements at first seems counterintuitive, or even contradictory, but there is a hidden meaning and recognizing it will move us out of our egalitarian-multicultural swamp and towards a properly ordered society. Ultimately, all of history is made by elites. Often times, in this sort of proxy war, elites simply exploit building resentment among certain groups. Populist movements and populist sentiment often have genuine complaints against governing elites.
A mass fever might birth a movement, but it will never sustain it. New elites are built in times of crisis. The Alt-Right Has Been Vindicated – Occidental Dissent. Recent events have vindicated the Alt-Right 1.) First, you have Ford building plants in Mexico and moving small car production out of Michigan to Mexico. 2.) Second, you have refugees or the children of refugees launching terrorist attacks in Orlando, St. Cloud and New York/New Jersey. 3.) 4.) 5.) 6.) 7.) 8.) 9.) 10.) 11.) That’s where this country is at today. Update: Watch the video below.
Should White Americans Prepare For "Race War"? The SPLC has a new article up on the Hatewatch about a recent Michael Hill article on the League of the South website. May 8, 2015 In "American South" The Truth About Pepe The Frog And The Cult Of Kek. “What is a Neo-Nazi and How Can I Become One?” Andrew AnglinDaily Stormer September 4, 2016 During this Alt-Right media storm, there has been much talk of Neo-Nazism.
In particular, Jews have been trying to push for a purge of Neo-Nazis from the movement. Over the last few days however, they appeared to be retreating, realizing that this was a hopeless endeavor. “You can’t jetsam the Anglin,” as they say. Being a Neo-Nazi, I am an expert on the topic of Neo-Nazism. I will here try to explain Neo-Nazism, and elaborate on the various types of Neo-Nazis. As a rule, everyone in the Alt-Right loves Hitler to some extent, given that he was the last great leader of Europe and the one who almost took down the Jews for good. Let us consider the five types of Neo-Nazis. Ironic Nazis – This group of Neo-Nazis uses imagery of Nazism and claims to be Nazi because it’s funny and upsets Jews and cucks.
But What is the Plan Though? Ultimately, everyone in the Alt-Right wants the same thing: I covered all of this in detail my Alt-Right primer. To this: The Flight 93 Election - American Greatness. Reposted with permission from the Claremont Review of Books. 2016 is the Flight 93 election: charge the cockpit or you die. You may die anyway.
You—or the leader of your party—may make it into the cockpit and not know how to fly or land the plane. There are no guarantees. Except one: if you don’t try, death is certain. To compound the metaphor: a Hillary Clinton presidency is Russian Roulette with a semi-auto. With Trump, at least you can spin the cylinder and take your chances. To ordinary conservative ears, this sounds histrionic. Not to pick (too much) on Kesler, who is less unwarrantedly optimistic than most conservatives. But let us back up. Conservatives spend at least several hundred million dollars a year on think-tanks, magazines, conferences, fellowships, and such, complaining about this, that, the other, and everything.
Yet we may also reasonably ask: What explains the Pollyanna-ish declinism of so many others? More to the point, what has conservatism achieved lately? I’m Alt Right, and You Should Be Too at Faith and Heritage. Dear Mom and Dad, You may have heard about the ‘Alt Right’ from Hillary’s speech today. I know that you raised me to never think ill of other groups like blacks, gays, or Jews, and that you’ve always spoken well of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Civil Rights movement, and that you think the Bible tells us that we white Christians have to take in refugees no matter what. Mom and Dad, you’re wrong – and I’m Alt Right. You think being Alt Right is bad – on the basis of a Hillary Clinton speech? When did the Clintons become the arbiters of truth around here?
Mom, I was only a kid at the time, but I remember you tsk-tsking Bill Clinton’s philandering and womanizing when he was President. Whatever happened to critical thinking? I’m Alt Right because I believe that I and your grandchildren have the right to exist in a country that exists for them and is governed by them. Mom and Dad, you need to stop and read that last sentence over again. And what about the Holocaust? At least not yet. Anon disturbs Hillary's Pepe Rally. The Breitbart alt-right just took over the GOP. Here's what you need to know about the Breitbart News chairman who just became Donald Trump's new campaign CEO.
(Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post) Here's what you need to know about the Breitbart News chairman who just became Donald Trump's new campaign CEO. Here's what you need to know about the Breitbart News chairman who just became Donald Trump's new campaign CEO. (Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post) On Wednesday, Donald Trump’s campaign announced Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon as its new CEO — shocking no one in the conservative world. Conservatives joked openly for months about “Trumpbart” and the transformation of Breitbart.com into, essentially, Bannon.com, but it was still something of a surprise that Trump would so publicly embrace Bannon, a man who helped transform a mainstream conservative website into a cesspool of the alt-right. The takeover, now a virtual fait accompli, represents the dangerous seizure of the conservative movement by the alt-right.
