Darkstream: the concept of the "right-wing" SJW



From the transcript of the Darkstream:

I don't know what "right-wing SJW" signals to you but what it signals to me is that the person who is talking does not understand what an SJW is. They do not understand that social justice actually means something. You know, it is a complete oxymoron. To use the term "right-wing SJW" is every bit as nonsensical as the term "right-wing communist"; there are no right-wing communists. Now, you can argue all you want about the Nazis being right-wing or left-wing; I think it's very obvious that the National Socialist German Workers Party was, like all socialist parties, like all workers parties, a party of the Left. I studied their ideology, and if you go over the 21 points of the Munich Manifesto, you can see that the National Socialists were considerably to the left of the American Democrats. That's why it's always been totally absurd to claim that Republicans or libertarians are Nazis, but there is enough common confusion on that score that you can understand where it happens.

And yet, you never see the same thing happen with communists, and nobody ever says, "oh, well, you right-wing communists", and so it's interesting to me to hear about that, especially in this recent run-in with the self-proclaimed moderates in the comics industry.  More than a few of them accused us, and me a particular, of being a quote right-wing SJW unquote, but if you understand what SJW stands for, if you understand what social justice is, then you realize that it's the same as saying you're a right-wing/left-wing warrior.

It's intrinsically nonsensical, and let me explain for those of you who have not read SJWS ALWAYS LIE, which is, as even people who don't like me very much will tell you, the go-to book on the subject. Social justice is about the convergence of all individuals and institutions towards what they consider to be the maximum possible justice for everyone,  and so "social justice warrior" does not refer to tactics, it does not refer to techniques, it refers to objectives. And the objectives of the SJW are absolutely antithetical to the right wing in general, and to right-wing extremists in particular

Alot of people don't realize that the concept of social justice goes back to the 1800s. That's right. A commenter said social justice is socialist justice. Many figures on the right have condemned it, probably the best example being Friedrich von Hayek. He wrote a really good essay on the subject back in 1971, so this is all going back much further than most people realize, and what we're seeing in the SJWs today is really just the ultimate realization of what John Stuart Mill was advocating back in, whatever it was, 1851. So if you look at what social justice stands for, it stands for the very things that we're now seeing from the tech companies, it stands for all of the corporations, all of the organizations, all of the Boy Scouts, all the churches, everything, being used to enforce the principles of social justice. Now, of course, what social justice specifically stands for has a tendency to mutate at any given moment. They used to be concerned about gay marriage, before that they were concerned about women in the workplace. They were concerned about black quarterbacks, now they're concerned about black coaches. The specific target frequently evolves, but the general objective of forcing everybody's opinion, and everybody's thinking, and everybody's actions to conform to the narrative, that is the primary objective.

Obviously that is not what we on the right wing support or stand for. We don't accept any of it. Social justice, and especially the convergence that it entails, is diametrically opposed to all of us who value Aristotelian logic, value Christianity and Christian morality, and so it is absolutely insane, it's nonsensical, to confuse the two or to conflate the two. Now, you can say quite reasonably that we don't want politics in our comics. I don't think that is very plausible for comics that are going to have any relevance to current events or to the interesting philosophical and ideological questions of the day, but that's not a nonsensical statement, it's just a self-limiting statement.

As I mentioned in the Darkstream, we have taken the opportunity of the recent unpleasantries to update our Dark Legion Comics logo, and we will be replacing the ComicsGate Comic logo on the current Gun Ghoul graphic novel with it later this week. We have already replaced the original Dark Legion logos on the digital editions, and we will replace the original gold Dark Legion logos on Chicago Typewriter and Rebel Dead Revenge when the production schedule permits.

Politics have always been in comics.

Captain America's origin is an expression of "War as another means of politics."
Spider-Man's politics condemn conservative non-intervention.
Iron Man's character is driven by his war profiteering.
Thor is a handicapped man who's spirit is judged worthy to possess the might of a god.
Black Panther...is...well...duh. From the beginning.
The Hulk is the consequence of rage against the military-industrial complex.
The X-men began about civil rights for colored people, switched over to gays, and now is pedoganda.
Sgt. Fury's Howling Commandos were intentionally far more ethnically mixed than any real squadron during WWII.

The best comics have ALWAYS been politically relevant. Alt-Hero #4 is simply more believable because of the politics.

https://twitter.com/EthanVanSciver/status/948712817535922177
He even uses the phrase "Comicsgate is DEAD..." after which the person he was talking to begged him to co-opt it.

A commenter said social justice is socialist justice.
Remember, SJWs always lie. In what I call the Socialist Inversion (for want of a better name), any phrase e.g. “Social X”, is actually “Socialist not-x”. E.g. social justice is in fact socialist injustice, social democracy is socialist tyranny, social security is socialist instability, social welfare is socialist poverty, and the social sciences are socialist alchemy.

It's a little more than that. It's the SJW all-or-nothing, you must agree with everything or you're an enemy. Right-wingers sometimes exhibit the same behavior, but they have monomania. It looks similar because they're attacking someone for having one idea wrong, but the RWer doesn't care that the person agrees or disagrees on other topics. The SJW is policing everything and subverts everything to politics.

So what's the difference between "social justice" and what Aristotle calls the "common good"? My understanding is that there is no real difference, and that "social justice" is not an inherently left-wing concept.

In fact, I would say that probably "social justice" is in itself a right-wing concept, and that the left has misappropriated it. The core of rightism is that man is a social being and has social duties/responsibilities, and that it's the duty of the state to maintain the social hierarchy; the core of leftism is that man is a radically individual being that can do whatever he likes as long as it doesn't take away the freedom of another individual, and that it's the duty of the state to give each individual the maximum possible freedom to express his individuality.

I wonder if the "right wing SJW" concept can be meme'ed at the left to screw with their heads.

Blogger Jack Collinson September 10, 2018 1:06 PM  

John Stuart Mill stated in Utilitarianism his view that "Society should treat all equally well who have deserved equally well of it, that is, who have deserved equally well absolutely. This is the highest abstract standard of social and distributive justice; towards which all institutions, and the efforts of all virtuous citizens, should be made in the utmost degree to converge."

It seems that Mill is applying the core of left-wing ideology which I outlined above – that the duty of the state is to secure to the freedom of individuals – to the concept of "social justice". So it seems I was right that the left have misappropriated the concept. Certainly, social justice does not demand egalitarianism. You can make an argument against the abolition of slavery in the name of social justice, as much as you can make one for it. Aristotle did exactly that when he said that certain races are inherently slavish. I wouldn't go that far myself on that particular issue, but it demonstrates my wider point that the idea of the common good or social justice does not necessarily include "equality".

The contradiction is that the left use the concept of social justice to push an increasingly individualistic way of life. For example, with the legalisation of "gay marriage" they don't care about the real social consequences of it, but only care that this gay individual has the "freedom" to do whatever he pleases with this other gay individual.

Blogger Jack Collinson September 10, 2018 1:17 PM  

This is why I would say that the core of left-wing ideology is represented by the Satanic motto of rebellion: "I will not serve". I will not serve the state, I will not serve the family, I will not serve God. I am a radically free individual, a free spirit, just like Lucifer: I am a law unto myself, and justice means giving me that freedom to do what I want. The only injustice in the world is impeding on the liberty of another free individual.

The left uses/misappropriates social concepts like law, justice, community, the state, etc., but the end-goal is actually lawlessness, power, individual freedom, anarchy, etc. They use the state really to abolish the state. Just like they are using "gay marriage" to abolish marriage. This is why you have to look past their words and see their real intentions. They are not truly interested in social justice (which in itself implies the rights of superiors to obeyed, e.g. fathers as heads of the household), but misappropriate the term to further destabilise the social hierarchy in the service of the revolutionary individual / anarchist. But naive people on the right think that by the left using the term "social justice" any concept of the common good must be left-wing, and so reactively they fall into libertarian / individualist views, i.e. the very essence of leftism, playing right into their hands.

Blogger IrishFarmer September 10, 2018 1:27 PM  

You should do a one page comic where the villain initiates the plot through some nefarious deed, but the hero is going to step in until they realize that politics are involved so they just walk away and the comic ends. Thrilling stuff that would be...at least it may shut up the moderates who think there's a mystical place where politics are somehow irrelevant.

Blogger CM September 10, 2018 1:53 PM  

For example, with the legalisation of "gay marriage" they don't care about the real social consequences of it, but only care that this gay individual has the "freedom" to do whatever he pleases with this other gay individual.

It’s the kind of "extreme" individualism that breaks down normal and healthy human relational ties to make them more subserviant to a collectivist/socialist means of security.

Feminism does the same thing - pursuit of what they considered the ideal of male autonomy thinking that men are in the habit of making decisions with only their own persons in consideration. Except women are innately more likely to seek security from external sources even if they make stable and sound decisions; feminism just makes it worse and drives them to the state.

Encouraging and embracing destabilized choices and social institutions creates a need for seeking security where the security you seek is government.

Blogger eclecticme September 10, 2018 1:57 PM  

Thomas Sowell wrote about 'cosmic justice' vs justice.
Justice is having rules, a strike zone, and an impartial umpire in baseball. Cosmic justice requires not having strict rules as you have to wait to see the results then adjust the results to be 'fair.'

Justice means the process is fairly applied. Cosmic justice means the result is fair.

E.g. Air Traffic control jobs, law review, med school admission etc. now require interviews or other ways to avoid applying rules.

Dividing the Left from the Right should not be a challenge or complex or confusing. Like topographic lines on a map, one side of the line is higher and the other side is lower. Seriously, I doubt there are any (or very few) Leftists that ever read John Stuart Mill.

My first litmus test is Egalitarian, and it is one of those yes/no questions. If they insist that all people are equal, they are of the Left. If they reject egalitarianism, then they are of the right. The assumption of EQUALITY is a basic divide and it is from this question that many other issues also divide....and whether it is the proper role of government to make people equal if they are not, since they have a right to be equal.

Gun Control is of the Left.
Environmentalism is of the Left.
Socialism is of the Left.
Identity politics is of the Left.

The second litmus test I use is PRIVATE PROPERTY. If they have no respect for private property, then they find it much easier to be an environmentalist, or advocate gun confiscation, or advocate tax the rich, or mandates for private business. Very often, the contempt for private property is generally a rejection of the RULE OF LAW because the law generally protects property rights. This is the first contradiction of Leftism....to insist that all people are equal but the same laws do not apply to everyone. Leftists reject the Rule of Law when they insist on rewarding identity with privileges. Racism and sexism and bigotry to the Leftists is totally acceptable on the part of the Leftists, but not their opponents. Free Speech is not for everybody, it is only for sexual obscenities and those who advocate Leftist causes. Any backtalk and backsass is not Free Speech.....it is prohibited as Hate Speech. Again, pretty easy to separate Left and Right.

The fundamental difference between the Law in the East (Leftism) and the Law in the West (Rightist) is one of simple tradition. In the East, the law compels and prescribes behaviors..."thou Shalt" do what you are told and they have a long history of police states to back it up. The individual has no rights, only duties under the law. In the West, the Law defines unacceptable behaviors, which are proscribed and prohibited ...."thou Shalt not". The Law prohibits acts as crimes, but if it is not prohibited, it is legal and acceptable. Yes, if something is not specifically prohibited it is lawful, and that is why we are a Free Society. We are not ordered to be free. Freedom is what remains after banning specific acts and behaviors deemed to be harmful to others or destructive to society. This is the constant tug-of-war between Left and Right. The Leftists want the Law to be more like the Law in the East.

Blogger R Webfoot September 10, 2018 2:13 PM  

'For example, with the legalisation of "gay marriage" they don't care about the real social consequences of it, but only care that this gay individual has the "freedom" to do whatever he pleases with this other gay individual.'

Freedom was never the point. You fell for the bait in the bait-and-switch.

They don't care about freedom at all, and never have. The Gays fit their narrative of a historically oppressed group which must be elevated and worshipped as an inversion of historical injustices.

But their ENEMIES care about something called freedom. Yelling at conservatives that "YOU SUPPORT THE FREE MARKET BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE IT LEADS TO THE MOST PROSPERITY FOR ALL! OH MY GOD!" isn't effective rhetoric. But yelling that they are something they hate and that they oppose something they love, is a cruel and effective weapon of psychological warfare.

Describing it as a matter of freedom goaded freedom-lovers into signing that The Gays should be allowed the Freedom* to express their sexuality however they wish.

And then came the switch, in which it was revealed that *Freedom does not just mean being allowed to do something, but uninhibited, and that the chance of experiencing public disapproval might hold them back from expressing themselves in public, therefore we must hunt down and destroy everybody who disapproves. Shoulda read the fine print before signing, sucker.

This heuristic, like most others, misses the point. Today, the Left claims to believe in Equality, so it's an effective test. Next year they may switch back to white supremacy. In fact, some of them already have.

If the left really believed in Equality, they would be able to define it. They don't care enough to do so, because it is only a rhetorical device and tribal signal.

Blogger maniacprovost September 10, 2018 2:48 PM

True, but inconclusive. All qualities of the Left necessarily existed before our conceptual categorization of them as such.

It all depends how you approach identity politics... If you reduce it to voting your own tribe More Gibs, then identity politics is leftist. A broader interpretation allows you to be ideologically left or right within the context of identity politics.

For example... If you refuse to hire Democrats, that is a right wing identity move.

Blogger Silly but True September 10, 2018 5:01 PM  

Discussion of meaning of Utilitarianism is already a lost cause from beginning. Even if two people were to agree on an idea that a highest good exists, we need not measure it in terms of the hypothetical maximum possible psychological happiness for the maximum number of people. To limit oneself to those boundaries already cedes ground which needn’t be given.

As a matter of personal experience that’s how you end up with absolutely evil notions of national public policy which cares not for an individual but usually maximizes outcomes even if the means to achieve it is morally reprehensible acts. Usually anything that sees people as a number without context rather than an individual with possibility to deviate from norm gives room for all manner of shenanigans. “Death panels” et. al. derive from these flawed agreements.

Blogger Resident Moron™ September 10, 2018 5:20 PM  

In Germany there are three areas of law:
. what is prohibited (of course this is primary - it's Germany!)
- what is optional
- what is mandatory

Of course the middle is being squeezed out of existince, in law as in politics.

Indeed, in politics BY law.

Blogger Mark Stoval September 10, 2018 5:32 PM  

Unfortunately, I don't have time today to enter into a long back and forth on this issue. I can only say that Michael Novak published a great paper on where the term "social justice" came from and what it meant then.

From the Heritage Foundation:

"Social Justice: Not What You Think It Is"

https://www.heritage.org/poverty-and-inequality/report/social-justice-not-what-you-think-it

This is a long read but I think it is well worth a man's time. Like the term "nation", the term "social justice" was stolen by the leftists and put to satanic uses. What else is new?

I hope someone reads and enjoys.

Blogger Silly but True September 10, 2018 5:56 PM  

Novak supported liberal immigration, called for a global economy, and backed free trade.

He was a dove on Iraq, which is fine, but he was also aggressively critical of the one good war: invasion of Afghanistan too.

If Novak were alive today, he’d be a #nevertrump Republican to the left of Kristol on issues that matter in 2018.

@MS:
I did not yet. I’ve not decided how much credibility on the subject I’ll willing to grant him yet.

Those that are regular readers of this blog will not be surprised. Thankfully, Vox and team had the foresight to establish Castalia Books Direct.


VD wrote:The video mentions a AH#1 rework for the premium edition. Will that affect the regular AH#1 single issues? Is that the version that goes in the collection paperback/hardback for backers?

Yes. That means that it's going to be modestly improved, relettered to match the subsequent issues, and will already be prepared for the larger backers's omnibus.


I think I can speak for most Alt★Hero backers and express our appreciation for this effort.

"social justice actually means something"

Yes, but I wouldn't expect people to have read John Stuart Mill, for instance. They're generally ignorant and most are idiots. They pick up on this or that clue or identifier and run with it.

Some have alt-retard in mind. There, at least, it's possible the supposed "right-wingers" are actually socialists. Though not SJWs.

What's in their heads when not thinking of actual natsees when they speak of "right-wing SJWs?" Group-identification, identitarianism, "politicization" of everything. For the latter, well, the left started it. And you can't "politicize" things that have already been made political.

All together, these identifiers are only incidentally related to SJWism. Countless different types of groups all across the political spectrum have used them throughout history.

@20- In the Fatal Conceit, F.A. Hayek says "social" as used by lefties is a "weasel word," referring to the purported habit of weasels to suck out and consume the innards of eggs while leaving the outer shell apparently unaltered.

Better, bolder logo featured here, I like the vertical red and black DLC with the shield and spear, please continue the great work.

How absurd, there's also no anarchist communist. It is mutually exclusive.

SJW's-Youtube striked RooshV like they pulled with Stefan, Youtube methodical flipped thru all content and then issued a baseless deceptive strike upon long term innocent content creators at youtube. Big Social and youtube doesn't understand they are harming the very people, fanbase etc., that have money and pay taxes. SJW's dont understand those whom they censor and pester with strikes only receives more support.

62 Vox, 2nd thought, I might be wrong, its just rude and disrespectful towards smarter concise presenters. The streams do need policed and ignoring stupidity isn't fitting either.

Many people listen on youtube or at the channel Open Mind or the VD chan at youtube.

Peri glitches, its been glitchy for a while. At youtube, when live or just uploaded streams appear quickly. Those real time comments do not appear there but still its a rude interruption on their part.

Kick out stupidity. I'm glad the watchers dont read or listen its all about comment, comment, watch, comment. This reveals some people cannot watch, listen and comment simultaneously with any insight. IQ-SD. Post literacy.

Kat was the latest example, well meaning but all wrong, called out not to be unkind just to be corrected or helped.

I'm not sure of the definitions of right wing and left wing but I would like comment on "conservative" even though a little OT.

Conservative does not always mean laissez faire. If often means conserving what is; giving some weight to tradition. Banning big box stores, or banning liquor sales on Sunday are conservative. The reason can be "just because" or "cheap stuff is not the only value." Ayn Rand is not conservative.

I cannot even parse the phrase 'right wing SJW."

Speaking of which, I received my (now collector's edition) copy of same today.

Hi, I hope I am not in trouble or in error with blog rules, its just one of our a own, kind person like Roosh is being harmed - Amazon wont even dignify him with a answer.

I ask for grace and mercy, this video from RooshV appeared just like an hour ago or when ever youtube lets me hear this;

If you have Twitter, remember to take a picture and declare your public support for the ComicsGate movement and its wonderful creators such as Will Caligan.

To go to the length of deplatforming seems like a good sign - they can only mass-deplatform like this once - then the other platforms will rise to fill the void - this must be one of the more powerful weapons in their arsenal amd if they are using it they must know things are not going well for them. I also expect that this is part of a 1-2 punch with the October surprise - I don't see the left simply pulling the cord from the amp and hoping for the best - so I expect to see a cold-cock October surprise of dubious veracity that they are busily preventing the counterstroke. They must think its bery very important for them to win this Fall....

@MS, I gave Novak’s paper the benefit of doubt.

I find it a bit dubious the claims that Luigi Taparelli observed the core tenets of the alt-right in 1840 and coined them “social justice.” And that only in later years this Godly platform has been corrupted by Satanists to their ends.

Taparelli was a Jesuit whose goal was to produce justification within the Church for a system that facilitated royalty and required slavery and indentured servitude.

His “social justice” was to justify society as a caste system.

It is only “conservative” in the sense that serfs and ruling classes had been around in Europe for hundreds of years and that’s what he sought to preserve as Europeans traded in their farm for the city.

Not hardly. :)

They don't really think they can beat Trump in 2020, so the only way to win is to remove him from office, which requires taking the House. They think they can then browbeat enough Senators to get him removed. I think they're dreaming on both counts, but my crystal ball has been known to be erratic.
