Has conservatism conserved the schools? demographics? social cohesion? the unborn? marriage? the family? gender roles? our culture? our mores? our values? our heritage? our history? our neighborhoods? our communities? our country? Or is it all gone with the wind?— Douglas Mercer (@douglasmercer33) December 1, 2019
Good morning, Clown World!
What’s going on today in liberal democracy which we all know is the greatest and most glorious form of government ever devised by the genius of man?
Today it is interracial humiliation in fast food advertisements:
Smash the dislike button.
I’m steadily building a daily archive of this stuff for future historians. I want our descendants to be able to look back and see the past through our eyes and experience how awful it was to live through this period of history in the final days before the collapse of Western liberalism. I might even write a book about it in my elderly years after our struggle is won.
I don’t believe that capitalism is the cause of this. The free market isn’t why we are being treated to these advertisements. It can’t explain why Chick-fil-A caved to Big Fag and donated to the SPLC or why GQ is holding up the black sissy as the new masculinity. The free market is premised on a world of disinterested individuals. I think Alex Jones was right in his interview with E. Michael Jones to compare what is going on to the mafia.
Woke ideology and pressure from these activist groups is having a distorting effect on the free market. There is no countervailing pressure coming from the mainstream Right to offset the pressure from the extreme Left. It boils down to the difference between a relaxed live and let live attitude that has confidence in the free market and a fanatical minority of zealots determined to push the culture in their direction by violating norms and punishing dissenters which has the full support of the mainstream Left. There is no policing of the extreme Left.
Antifa is a great example of this imbalance. There are Antifa accounts on Twitter that have accumulated tens of thousands of followers in spite of using the platform for years to organize doxxing and violent mobs to shutdown conservatives. In contrast, the Dissident Right accounts are constantly respawning on Twitter after being deleted for the most arbitrary and trivial reasons. The Right loses the culture war because the extreme Left, the Center Left and Center Right are all pulling it to the Left. Charlie Kirk and Rob Smith are on stage on college campuses fighting the “culture war” by mainstreaming miscegenation and homosexuality.
The cover story of the December issue of The Atlantic is about the pivotal role that the Center Right plays in losing in the culture war. It has swallowed and assimilated the Civil Rights Movement, multiculturalism, political correctness, feminism, gay rights and the LGTBQ movement. Historically speaking, the function of the Center Right has been to normalize and stabilize leftwing social revolutions. Progressive liberalism needs conservative liberalism to digest its victories which is why the Center Right is treated as legitimate in our culture.
What happens if the Center Right and Conservatism, Inc. which is its institutional expression loses its legitimacy and credibility though? It is worth observing The Atlantic sees that as the end of America. The tug of war in the culture war might be reversed.
