H/T Rod Dreher
I’m many things.
I consider myself a proud White Southerner, a good Lutheran, a peaceful populist, a husband and father, a race realist, a tolerant and kind person who believes in and practices virtue ethics, and a thinker who writes about all sorts of interesting, unorthodox ideas on this website.
Let me tell you what I am not in plain English … a bigot and a fanatic like these people:
“Sometimes titles are evocative and strange, more about setting a tone or a theme than telling audiences what they’re in for. As the bully Nelson Muntz says of Naked Lunch in The Simpsons, “I can think of at least two things wrong with that title.” But then sometimes it’s really satisfying for a piece of art to deliver on its title, especially if it involves literally beating back the surge of white supremacists in this country. To that end, “The One Where a Nazi Gets Punched” is like that first deep breath of fresh mountain air — crisp and pure and totally invigorating. Always feels great to watch Nazis get punched.
But is it right? Here’s Jay’s entire monologue, delivered straight to the camera, as a racially instigated melee breaks out in a parking lot of a polling place on election day:
Is it alright to hit a Nazi unprovoked? I was always taught never to throw the first punch, never to instigate. Defend, but don’t attack. But then I saw a video of the white nationalist Richard Spencer being punched in the face during an interview. I realized Spencer was in a pressed suit, wearing a tie, being interviewed like his opinion mattered — like it should be considered part of the conversation, like neo-Nazism is just one political point of view. And then I realized there’s no better way to show some speech is not equal. Some speech requires a more visceral response. It’s like Overton’s window — that’s the term for which ideas are tolerated in public discourse. Well, Overton’s window doesn’t mean shit unless it comes with some enforcement. So yeah, this is enforcement. It’s time to punch a few Nazis.”
As I have been pounding away at length, the doctrine of woke supremacy has transformed these people into truly awful human beings. They lack a moral compass. They have no spiritual center. There is nothing there except the -isms and -phobias of political correctness. Instead of doing what I do, which is to say, I try to practice the real moral virtues or to learn more about my faith, these people practice their faith (i.e., the -isms and -phobias) by engaging in violence against others. These people have confused ethics with politics when they are two entirely separate spheres in life.
Listen to this:
“And then I realized there’s no better way to show some speech is not equal.” What an incredible thing. Yeah, I agree with you: Richard Spencer is a rotten person, and his views are horrible. But look, do you really think they’re going to stop with Richard Spencer and his kind? This happened last year in Toronto. The speaker (off camera) is a peaceful pro-life protester …”
Why is Richard Spencer an awful person?
I grant that Spencer has his flaws and has done any number of objectionable things, but simply telling the truth about the existence of race isn’t one of them. In this respect, Spencer is only an intelligent, educated person who has kept up with science, looked at the data and drawn the logical conclusion. What’s more, he is doing something good by having the honesty and integrity to buck the silly taboos on the subject. In contrast, Rod Dreher and other conservatives have shied away from confrontation with the Far Left over the issue due to cowardice, which is why they lost the culture war.
Having lost the fight due to cowardice, Dreher now advocates retreat into political quietism. While there might be some merit in the idea, it would be much easier to just dump conservatism.
Now that's what I call Fed posting…
Including an easter egg which calls for the assasination of a sitting President is pretty bold, but screenshotting and sharing it to their Twitter w/ over 20k followers to make sure their audience saw it should be considered incitement. pic.twitter.com/04PIh5l7z2

We're now in a situation where CBS is promoting Antifa's policy of violently attacking white dissidents for their free speech. Prepare accordingly. pic.twitter.com/v5vNoPvcny

If you disagree with Richard Spencer, then you should debate him. He is quite reasonable and would be happy to talk to you. You shouldn’t engage in violence. As a society, we shouldn’t cast aside our traditional values like free speech either simply because SJWs are unable to win an argument. Look at what these people have become which is nothing more than violent street thugs.
Note: The founder of our church had a term for these people. They are the The Eternal Schwärmer. In fact, they were once considered such a danger to the social order that they were suppressed in Lutheran Europe for centuries. They have become a real challenge since their emancipation.
Schwärmer – agent noun of schwärmen; enthusiast, zealot, extremist, sentimentalist, dreamer, visionary.
