Mailvox: the furrowed brow

As I pointed out in Cuckservative, it doesn't matter which side the moderates say they are on. They will always, always, always prefer to virtue-signal by shooting at "their" side. Either you're too impolite or you're insufficiently inclusive or you're too extreme or your bow tie is tied improperly. Regardless, they are always irrelevant and serve no purpose except as speedbumps for the side they nominally support.

A Castalia House blogger notes that the moderates have discovered Alt★Hero.
There's another outraged blog post about Alt★Hero, this time from Kasimir Urbanski. He claims that what you're doing is just like SJW Marvel. I read the post, and he behaves exactly as you said moderates do -- they shoot at their own side, saying that we have to behave more civilized than the opposition, all in some attempt to avoid charges of being too mean instead of backing up people who actually take action. They expect to both fight the SJWs and follow the (im)moral standards SJWs set, standards the SJWs happily ignore.
Let's see what this gentleman has to say:
And that's what bothers me about Alt-Hero. We certainly could use someone coming along and making a new comics universe that was ABOUT THE COMICS in the same way the OSR is about the games. One that didn't ignore politics completely, or shy from moral lessons, or push a leftist agenda, but that wasn't just a facade for right-wing propagandism either.

 I would love to see a universe that had heroes that actually embodied heroism, that had moral values, that were patriotic, that believed in family, that stood up for classical Enlightenment values, who saluted the flag. And this would have the "Aleena Effect" of SJWs protesting against a hero in a US flag, and everyone who likes US flags abandoning the SJWs.

 But above all, that it would focus on the comics. Instead, Alt-hero has every appearance of being something that will involve someone who is fundamentally not really all that into comics (at least, not enough to value the subculture) injecting ideological propaganda into the medium of the comic, with the comics' conventions being largely an afterthought to sledgehammering their political agenda.

 That means Alt-Hero looks like it's going to be pretty much just like SJW Marvel.
That is pure textbook. One of the reliable marks of the moderate is his total inability to distinguish tactics from objectives. The ironic thing is that to ignore something like the SJW invasion of literally every aspect of society would be to inject ideological propaganda into the comics, as it is one of the most significant aspects of our society today. Omitting that, or immigration, would be like pretending the Cold War wasn't happening during the 70s and 80s.

But this is good news, in my opinion. The more the moderates are concerned and even upset, the more likely it is that Alt★Hero is going to be effective.

The motive for r-type cucks is despicable and transparent:

Who is on my side?? To whom do I owe a reciprocal responsibility?

Solution: Exploit them as you can take them for granted.


Who is an enemy or threat?? ---

Solution: Appease them or pretend to speak for others and sell out your groups interests.

Wait for one side to win... then cuck harder.

There is a special place in hell for these types as Dante notes.

Anonymous Man of the Atom October 15, 2017 11:07 AM  

I note there is no effort by these critics 'fundamentally into comics (at least, enough to value the subculture)' to attempt to build their own version of Alt★Hero, or to contact Vox with potential concepts/stories/characters that would fulfill what they see as 'better comics' within the Alt★Hero construct.

Laziness and armchair quarterbacking also seem to be reliable tells of those who would rather virtue signal to the Alt-Left.

Anonymous karsten October 15, 2017 11:15 AM  

Of course. That guy wants the Right to play by Marquess of Queensberry rules, while the Left plays to win: the suicidal tactic of unilateral disarmament, i.e., the born-to-lose mentality of the cuck, whose only desire is to feel virtuous about himself, according to the Leftist morality that he has internalized.

I for one applaud in-your-face "hard"-Right propaganda (though I define "Right" a bit differently than many here; but that's another matter) and wish there were more of it. When the Prussians fought Napoleon, they didn't write poetry free of political content to "win over the people"; they wrote overtly political war poetry designed to inflame their spirits and kindle their valor in order to crush their foes. And they did. And it was damned good poetry too.

That's what we need more of.

I have my own quibbles about some of the content of Alt-Hero (everyone has his own taste), but "too hard Right" is the least of it; if anything, I count on some red meat in it to make up for some aspects of which I might be less enamoured.

The other thing to remember here is that Leftist brainwashing is so ubiquitous in all aspects of culture that much of it is accepted at face value and flies under the radar simply due to its pervasiveness. Elements that are actually politically far Left often seem superficially "apolitical" because they are so customary as to be normative. By contrast, even a modicum of cultural-Right storytelling is arresting, far outsize of its actual intensity, simply due to its singularity.

Absolutely. Decades of X-Men comics, for example, have had one overarching and undisguised political purpose: to convince readers to celebrate the degenerates and make kids believe that any resistance to degeneracy is evil. The X-people's "powers" were never anything but metaphors for perversions.

But to the cuck, who has internalized Leftist morality (which is why he's a cuck, after all), stuff like that seems like politically neutral storytelling.

Nothing I've seen in Alt-Hero so far is more politically overt than any so-called "classic" (((Chris Claremont))) issue of X-Men.

If Vox spent his time exclusively on these sort of projects instead of feuding with free speech platforms and trying to project specious formulations of the right onto other people, he would be a better Vox. I am not a petty primate, and thus I hope Alt Hero will become a success. If Vox can pump out some quality prole feed with a right wing set of reference points (rather than ideological agenda), while avoiding the goonthink trap, it will be a major, positive contribution.

I would say AltHero is a far more valuable project than the Voxiversity thing, which looked retarded. BPS already has that slot.

Well, there will not be any subtle or overt sexuality, otherwise then the equivalent of WWII pinups is my guess, and the violence will be back grounded, or underplayed would also be my guess. That considered, since it is put out by the Right (so under a microscope), it will be PG-13, but I'd trust them with kids two years younger.

Case in point.

""Diversity is the human experience," Smith said. "I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT."

That particular comment went over well with the assembled crowd, but Smith caught flak for a follow up.

"There can be 12 white blue-eyed blonde men in a room and they are going to be diverse too because they're going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation," Smith said.

Media outlets pounced on the statement, while diversity advocates decried Smith's words as contradictory to the fight for workplace equality. As noted by TechCrunch, which procured a copy of Smith's letter, the statement appeared to suggest diversity of thought is a suitable stand in for proactive hiring practices adopted by a variety of tech firms, including Apple, to foster racial and gender diversity."

It's less common for left wing moderates to attack their own extremists. Seldom does one see condemnations of Antifa or BLM from the left; instead, the typical strategy of a center-leftist engaging with a right-winger is to misrepresent the philosophies of the radicals while downplaying their influence, often approaching the point of denying their existence. It's a different dynamic than is the norm on the right, and the moderates' support of the extremists largely explains the political successes that the left has enjoyed over the past century.

It would be as if Charles Krauthammer had responded to the events in Charlottesville and images of people throwing Roman salutes by saying, "That's all hyperbole, no one really takes those people seriously. Hopefully one thing we can all agree on as a result of the regrettable outcome of this peaceful protest is that it is never acceptable for protesters to block traffic, commit vandalism, and attack innocent passers-by."

The dynamic the left enjoys is possible because the radicals have marketed themselves well to the moderates, who are at the very least unknowingly enamored with Marxism.

I take contradictions like that as a sign of childishness, femininity, or leftism, because it means that the speaker doesn't expect to have to do for himself.

His dismissal doesn't make sense anyway, considering Alt-Hero's funding is still going ongoing and that (unlike Marvel's well-documented offerings) there's no completed product to actually gauge as 'right-wing propaganda' yet. I'd think most of the right would be behind the project, simply because it's a positive non-complaining creative pushback effort that few seem inclined to take on... but as usual, it seems the perfect is the enemy of the good to these supposed fellow travelers.

One person I AM interested to hear about concerning Alt-Hero is Bosch Fawstin, who's been toiling away Ditko-like against the Islamophile left for over a decade. I'd hope he'd support Alt-Hero, and maybe even lend Pigman for a 'crossover' or two. But like Steve, he's also an objectivist, and they're quite... picky where their allies are concerned.

Billions of moderate muslims out there and I know of no protests against the extremist groups on their sides. Hundreds of millions of americans towed the PC-line until the election showed them the leftist-extremists don't exactly out-number the MAGA-voters.

Like Cpt. America said, "Fighting is about winning", and if we win they'll move on over to our side.

Scott Adams had a periscope once where he explained that in his career he discovered that it's not about how many people your comic (work) appeals to. What matters is the few that REALLY love your work because their passion is gonna radiate to those around them. The Pareto distribution applies to fandom too.

I went over and read his column. Coming from an outsider as far as comic knowledge, for a blogger, he uses the term "retarded" a lot, not really bothering to explain what he means by that. Am I missing something? After reading the comments section ,whenever it comes down to explaining their disapproval, they aren't very precise on terms, or meaning. Its not like they are coming right out and saying the artwork sucks, or the storylines aren't worthy, its more like some vague feeling, like they mixed broccoli with with tequila, kimchi, and goat cheese for lunch, and can't quite understand why they don't feel well.

The way I see it, the only thing upsetting their digestion is the thought of fighting someone not just fighting back, but using the very same tactics the left uses against them. They are truly scandalized by that- tut tut.

If Nate from this blog told the firemen story over there in comments, well done.

Then, near the end of the video he admits that the success the Alt*Hero crowd-funding has inspired him to write the comics he has always wanted but couldn't because he knows that his conservative views will get him blacklisted from comics proper.

@54. White Pride.
And ironically, nobody punches right harder than Vox Day and his idiot followers.

In all fairness to VD, note that it was Anglin, et al who punched first. The whole "Nazi" issue (the idiot larping and the subsequent sperging over the fact that Nazis were more left than right under obsolete terms used in the French revolutionary era) was a major distraction.

The real irony of the fighting between Anglin, Spencer, et al and VD is that it obscured the (((fake news))) narrative collapse in the wake of Charlottesville. The only Nazi on the scene was a paid actor from Antifa, the SJW who died was not killed by the 'car of peace' but had a heart-attack, and the chopper that crashed with two badge-gang members went down miles away.

That doesn't mean it was a good idea to allow our side to be led into a trap - which was clearly what it was. There are still very serious questions about Jason Kessler (probably a plant) and Richard Spencer (maybe just a self-absorbed idiot) who has taken some rather odd globalist positions which seem to shift with each passing wind. The Alt-White is legitimate but its rank and file needs to understand that the Alt-West are allies - and not the same as civic nationalists (who can go either way).

You seem to be saying "Globalists = Marxists," is that correct? Both in the future and in the past? Even in the Globalist own eyes, they are Marxist, correct?

Margret Thatcher = Marxist

Ronald Reagan = Marxist

They were both 100% Globalists, and, yes, they both did extreme damage to the West.

People do not keep up. The fact that you or I see all Globalists as playing the Marxist game, does not mean they see it that way. Many of these Pundits, in their own eyes, do not believe they are playing the Marxist game, and often, even their masters think they are middle of the road or even Libertarian.

There's been an evolution, where the remaining Globalists have to become more Left. My Whole point was that they still believe in past paradigms. These type of Globalists, many of them at least, including at the billionaire level, do not believe they are Marxists even today.

The thing that seems to be missed a lot is that Marxism is basically a scam - one of several employed by globalists, especially (((banker elites))) to advance their interests when the opportunity presented itself. Why, for example, would the "arch-capitalists" named by doctrinaire Marxists as the epitome of evil - like the Warburg banksters and their Shabbas-goys - fund the likes of Lenin and (((Trotsky))) a century ago to overthrow the liberal democratic regime in Russia (keep in mind that the Tsar was well already out of the picture when these two were sent back)??

Why would Marxists take the money?? Clearly there was something they had to deliver to their (((backers))) in return for the payment (a railroad carload of gold as I recall). At the end of the day, the Marxist true-believers were the useful-idiots for the globalists' Bolshevik front-men even more than the liberal intelligentsia were the useful-idiots for the Marxists. Stalin figured the racket out fairly quickly, and ultimately out-gangstered the (((original gangsters))) to establish himself as supreme capo of the mafia in charge of the former Russian empire - a reason he's still admired there to this day, despite his bloodthirsty ways. He may have been a Georgian gangster, but at least he wasn't one of (((them))).

By the time Reagan and Thatcher arrived, the Marxist racket started in 1917 was no longer under the control of the globalist oligarchy, but run by various local gangs in Russia, China, Cuba and other places all using the "Marxist" label, with various degrees of implementation of actual Marxist ideology. As VD noted in a very curious Drakstream a while back, the places in Europe who were until recently run by the local "Marxists" are considerably less cucked in terms of resisting the multi-culti genocide program than their "free" counterparts in the west are. Some Marxists are more Marxist than others. It's often just a brand-name to be applied as needed. Is the Chinese regime Marxist? It certainly takes the name and Mao has a massive shrine in Beijing.

He's also posted multiple anti Trump articles and attacked supporters in the comments. If he had a hand in D&D 5th edition that fully cements his status as having gone Full Cuck as every version of D&D starting with 3rd had a heavily converged community and Pathfinder, 4th, and 5th editions all reflect this in the rules themselves.

"Absolutely. Decades of X-Men comics, for example, have had one overarching and undisguised political purpose: to convince readers to celebrate the degenerates and make kids believe that any resistance to degeneracy is evil. The X-people's "powers" were never anything but metaphors for perversions."

Ummm... hey now. I loathe the X-Men as a general rule as any right-wing guy should... but while the seed for it being a converged franchise was always present and was growing from the beginning... explain to me how having superpowers, by itself, is a metaphor for perversion?

I mean, granted, the X-Men of 616 are pretty perverse (I mean, Professor X and all the original dude X-Men wanted to get in the sack with Jean Grey from the very first Issue, which really puts all adaptations of Professor X’s character in a new light), but dude, how does having Ice-Powers, telekinesis, telepathy, super strength, weird ape-like agility, angel like wings, and the like inherently a metaphor for perversion rather than just exactly what it says on the tin?

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin


If anything, the source of their powers, mutations, would really be a better thing to pin the whole 'metaphor for perversion' thing on them as well as how the writers love to draw parallels between how mutants are treated in general and fags, minorities, and what have you... even though said discrimination is less to the do with the fact that they're minorities, perverse or no, and the fact that mutants in 616 have fucking crazy abilities that not even the most supportive second amendment guy would be behind without some extreme level of government oversight and control. Powers and abilities that will likely dwarf whatever we see from characters from Alt-Hero (versus matchups on lefty forums where X-Men absolutely shitstomp Alt-Hero characters being their only comfort regardless of how much better Alt-Hero will be written than most modern comic trash), and even in Alt-Hero, the governments of the world have established their own agencies and what not designed specifically to keep superpowered individuals in check and incarcerate or kill them if they don’t comply.

Yes, we're all aware that Frank Miller was even bigger lefty when he was younger and that he tends to have a massive hard-on hatred for any character well above street level who deals with beyond street level threats... fittingly enough, like Chuck Dixon, though, in Dixon's case, his hatred is more directed at the power scale itself rather than any misconstrued notion of their character like what Miller likes to do. To Miller's defense, though, didn't he work on Holy Terror and wasn't he at least marginally rightwing at one time before saying he hates Trump stupidly?

They never were. Even in the predecessors to superheroes and the comic book medium as a whole as well as the sci-fi and fantasy genres, the pulps, they never were free of political drama, and any idea that they ever were is a complete illusion and delusion brought out by the fact that we've swallowed certain things that are political drama as not political drama.

I've seen criticism from people that Alt-Hero "looks like a stunt." I think the confederate-theme costume might be too on-the-nose for them.

However, is it correct to say that the goal of Alt-Hero is to reflect how superheros would work in a realistic way, in the modern world, via current events? That's the vibe I got from it anyway. So many comic books seem to ignore that the government exists, or allow superheroes to act on some kind of separate plane of authority.

Hey Vox, go ask our mutual friend Alex whether or not I'm a 'cuckservative', or a moderate.

While you're at it, ask him what I did for RPGs. I had a whole -gate dedicated to me. Every last SJW in tabletop RPGs came together to try to blacklist me from the hobby.

You're Vox Fucking Day. The SJWs are going to be outraged no matter what you do. If you were Joe Smith who no one ever heard of, trying to make a name for himself as a right-wing shitlord, then that would be a different story.

It was much the same with me in the RPG hobby. So I didn't need to do what some people did there, making edgy RPGs with titles like "fuck for satan" or "tournament of rapists". I did stuff in the RPG hobby that were the very core of fundamental D&D play, and the SJWs were forced to condemn it. Instead of staking the far ground and giving away the whole center to them, I pushed into their territory.

Damn right I don't shut up about putting the first ever Trans character on the cover of an RPG (a historically-topical character in Arrows of Indra, an RPG based on Indian mythology), because that means I TOOK THAT AWAY FROM THEM.
I promoted the Old School Revival, which says "we like D&D", and forced them to expose what they'd spent years lying about, by openly condemning D&D.

My point is, like me in the RPG hobby but on a larger scale, you're someone who, if you came out in support of Teddy Bears, would lead the SJWs to denounce Teddy Bears as a Rape Culture Product of White Nationalism and call for Pooh to be banned. That's how you beat them; you make buffoons out of them, and you turn the ordinary teddy-bear-loving crowd against them.

So yeah, great, applause for you that you made a supergirl with the Confederate Battle Flag for a uniform. You showed your outrageousness and get a lot of applause from your home team, especially the assholes who use a lot of "((( )))" markers as their secret code because they're too scared to openly admit their anti-semitism.

But if you had made your lead character a deeply patriotic straight devoutly-Christian family-man Black dude would that have generated any less press for you? Would it have given them more ammo, or less? Would it have given ground to them, or would it in fact have taken ground away from them? Would it have made them look more or less retarded when they condemned the character?

I didn't write what I wrote because I'm secretly Bill Kristol and want to get congratulated by Salon. I wrote what I wrote because I want you to fucking win as much as possible. But mainly, I want the hobbies I like to win, by seeing the SJWs marginalized from them.

And as I repeatedly said in the various twitter-storms your fans have sent at me (where I get to see them suggest I'm a liberal plant, or they insinuate I'm a Jew as if that wouldn't be a compliment), I absolutely honestly hope I'm wrong. I hope that what you produce ends up being spectacular as a comic world, not just as propaganda. Sincerely, good luck with that.

Shut up, cuck.

Yep. This right here is a spectacular cuck.

Most of my foreign friends are from the US South, and I'd say they all value the confederate flag over the USA flag. This was just one of the characters we made, and I have a pretty good guess about who suggested the idea. I would have done it just as a thank-you to them.

But then there was an unanticipated amount of autistic screeching about this one, so we knew we had a gold mine here. So, obviously we then put Rebel EVERYWHERE. But she's just one character. She just turned out to be a very fortunate accident.

You have to understand, in Europe, the Confederate flag is basically just a symbol of rebelling against unjust authority. I had a huge Confederate flag at the wall of where we had our regular LAN parties, and didn't at the time even know its history.

So, I found the idea of a Confederate bra amusing. Then everybody went nuts, and it went from amusing to hilarious. I'm of course aware of the attempts to turn the Confederate flag into the new swastika, but from over here it's like, you can't fucking be serious!

So yes, we're going to stuff it in your face as long as it makes you go REEEEE!

So you've got a very pretty girl wearing Lee's battle flag all over and not ONE tat, piercing or other mutilation that would detract.

What's not to like?

In fact, I was just traveling to Austin while the insanity was at its peak and it was all over the TV's at the airport. It's a different experience to just walk into the insanity as it is whipped to a frenzy, than have been taken through it as it was designed, turning up the heat slowly until you are ready for the peak, hopefully not able to see just how insane it is.

Not just the south, Markku. You'll see them all over the US now.

Damn right I don't shut up about putting the first ever Trans character on the cover of an RPG (a historically-topical character in Arrows of Indra, an RPG based on Indian mythology), because that means I TOOK THAT AWAY FROM THEM.

This is grounbreaking stuff in the art of political cuckoldry. Not only to manage to rationalize putting a tranny on a cover, but actually feel PROUD of it. This right here is making history, folks.

Rebel has an authentic, provincial, cultural heritage. Her sister was an avatar around here a couple of years ago. The connection may not be direct but the fire was lit and who knows how ideas get around?

You got to drink in a 2-minute hate during Confederate Hate Week? Cool. But that was last week. This week is Columbus Hate Week.

"I TOOK THAT AWAY FROM THEM."

If they can erase Leigh Brackett and C.L. Moore to fit their narrative, they can easily erase you.

Do you even understand what they're trying to do?
