The eliminationist Left

The Washington Examiner discovers SJWs:
Is the American Right so wrong that the elites should use their power to exclude it from debate?

The Obama White House and Facebook both seem to think so, if recent stories are accurate.

Obama's foreign policy team spun false stories about Iran to rally support for a nuclear deal and circumvent a debate on honest terms, according to a recent New York Times Magazine piece. The reason? Top Obama officials believed that "rational discourse" with its foreign-policy critics was impossible.

Facebook employees, meanwhile, "routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network's influential 'trending' news section," a former Facebooker told Gizmodo, a tech website....

This eliminationist tendency has been visible for years, including in the works of the Left's leading lights. If you have read liberal New York Times blogger Paul Krugman with any regularity, you're familiar with the argument: The Right is fundamentally insane or dishonest or both, and thus its arguments are unworthy of decent treatment or serious consideration.
This is entirely normal in SJW circles. Anything they deem evil, from racism to sexism to homophobia to dead-naming, does not merit any discussion or defense, it is simply beyond the pale and thereby justifies every form of personal attack.

They don't even bother to hide it. Back in 2013, for all their public histrionics, not a single person from the SFWA dared to actually argue the case that racism was bad and merited punishment, because a) they consider that to be self-evident, and, b) they are incapable of actually making a coherent case for it.

Which is absolutely fine. They don't argue with us, so we don't argue with them. We don't talk to them at all. We simply define them as utterly and irrevocably evil, take them out without hesitation, and show them no mercy when they suddenly decide that they want to debate, discuss things, and appeal to our principles.

Notice how the SJWs in science fiction demand conclusive proof that they are pedophiles and anti-religious bigots while never requiring any to declare others to be racist, sexist, homophobic, cis-gendered white supremacists. We don't need any proof either. They associate with, and even celebrate, rapists and pedophiles and other human detritus, and that's all we need to damn them for it.

#2 The media has millions of bodies at its feet, dating from the times of Walter Duranty. No clemency will be offered, just as they have offered none to those subject to their crimes. They defined the terms of the conflict when they covered for Stalin, and have only themselves to blame for the long delayed blowback. I don't know about anyone else, but nothing less than their total destruction would, or could, satisfy _me_.

Marcuse -- which is to say, (((Marcuse))) -- didn't even pretend that this wasn't his intent. He coined the phrase "repressive tolerance" which, as the name implies, stated point blank that the cultural Left should demand tolerance for itself, while at the same time aggressively being intolerant of the cultural Right. Why? In a nutshell, because (((they))) are moral and we are evil.

It's a straight-up, ends-justify-the-means agenda, but dressed up in moralistic clothing, to dupe the goys who need to feel good about themselves while actually perpetrating evil.

A white person can successfully claim to be black if they hold the correct politics. A man can claim to be a woman and reap the benefits of feminism if they have the correct politics.

A black woman with the wrong politics is really a closet Trans-Cis-White-male. As such it is open season to do as you please to them.

Quote Vox Day

No, they don't. We have rejected them. There is no place for them any longer. There is no freedom of expression for them. There is nothing for them.


Listen to the Dark Lord for he is wise.

Remember what old A.B says

The goal is national restoration nothing less.

Its noxious to consider especially for Americans rooted in a minrachy and "Constitutionalism" and an open society but we have to get rid of the commons they control and replace both with private spaces till we control the commons.

The private space won't last forever mind you, the Left will try to force their way in with the state but the goal ifs to build a robust enough system to get the critical mass we need to replace them before they engineer a systemic collapse.

The funny thing though is the hard part is not taking charge, the enemy is in many ways pathetically weak.

Its actually dropping all the libertarian/libtard bullshit we are saddled with an being willing to be authoritarian. The Leftists are actually quite good at this so long as someone else picks up the tab anyway and we should be as well.

We have to be willing to give orders, follow orders and punish defectors. Make people behave the way they should

Think of it this way, if being an SJW is considered sedition, you get a lot less of them.

If divorce is hard to get and welfare is hard to get and single moms face sanctions, there will be a lot less of them.

You can make society work better without being totalitarian if you are willing to be authoritarian.

Hell even the triggery-puff types can be dealt with. Conscript them into an Army of Reclamation or whatever. Light infantry is actually pretty cheap.

If, if we are willing to put aside being nice, tolerant and freedom minded till we have a society with the moral fiber, homogeneity and character for that to work.

I'd bet 20 years, 40 at the long end and you could make the US like 1958 but better.

To actually get our own society, maybe slower but with less destruction it is very important that we have our own stuff.

Since SJW's don't have ideas that work, they always resort to censorship

A just now example, the R/European free speech pro White subreddit just got quarantined . It got popular, more than R/Europe and people hearing alternate ideas , nope can't have that.

Needless to say it and the not as yet quarantined r/Northamerican subreddits were some of the few worthwhile things on that site

At the end of this we will have to have institutions of our own dedicated to only Right Wing views and built around technology to prevent subversion. I suspect it will be algorithms for the win.

@23-Marcuse's "repressive tolerance" underlines the contempt for truth and honest discourse of modernism/postmodernism. Quite obviously he's advocating intolerance, and there's no reason to term it "tolerance" except for obfuscation's sake. Herbert was smart enough to know this, I trust, but the New Left probably wasn't. Generations of SJWs since haven't improved.

Vox,
My son is about to start school for the first time. He's a very sweet and sensitive little boy.
School damn near ruined me.
I don't want to do this to him.
I've never been so gutted and apprehensive in my life.
I don't make that much money and I struggle to support my family.
But it's a meaningful struggle.
I'm not rich and I'm not smart.... But I take pride in still being resourceful, hard working, and providing for my wife and son.

I could take a mountain crashing on me. But the thought of my son getting tormented like I did in school is too much.

I pick up as many extra jobs as I can to be able to homeschool. But I don't know how I can do all of it.
My main job is unforgiving in that respect. I could lose it if I'm too tardy too often. And then my family would be in worse shape.

I don't know what to do. And yes... You're the first person I thought of.

How do I make this work?

So, how long does a twitter account ban last?

"My son is about to start school for the first time. He's a very sweet and sensitive little boy.
School damn near ruined me."
This stuff reads a troll job form letter. But i'll play along. If you are so worried about his experience why don't you home school the kid ? What does your ol' lady do ? WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO SMOTHER YOUR KID AND NOT GET HIM USED TO, LIKE THE REAL WORLD ?
" I don't make much money and I struggle to support my family"
Join the club. most of us here have been , or are doing what you are doing right now. Man the hell up already.
"I could take a mountain crashing on me. But the thought of my son getting tormented like I did in school is too much."
Teach your kid to not get bullied. Damn dude this ain't a hard saying. Man up, dammit.
"I pick up as many extra jobs as I can to be able to homeschool. But I don't know how I can do all of it."
I hear ya. Do you go to Church ? Have family for a support group ? Again, what does the baby mama do ? Sit on her ass all day watchin' Dr. Phil or Oprah ?

"My main job is unforgiving in that respect. I could lose it if I'm too tardy too often. And then my family would be in worse shape."
That's the case with , oh 90 % of us here.
"How do I make this work?"
You will make it work, you have to.
Prayers for you and yours.

I was expecting Trump to do well with blacks, but I wasn't even asking the question of how hard he would have to work to get a majority.

Holy smokes, if he gets better than 20% it'll be double the best any recent R has done.

A majority? Jim Mora voice here... Majority!?!?!

I had to look up "dead-naming," too. This stuff is seriously beyond parody.

@84:

Now combine that with this.

@23: With respect, where did Marcuse write/say this?

I read a bit of Marcuse in grad school (his "top" 2-3 titles, The One-Dimensional Man and sh*t like that).

I confess I don't remember much, except that I found him unconvincing and he didn't bother to hide his contempt for ordinary people. His ideas seemed profoundly anti-human.

At the time, it also seemed like his ideas were headed for the ash heap, so I didn't give him much thought - except to bash him hard when anyone else brought him up.

Was it A Critique of Pure Tolerance?

Thanks.

@80: It's not that expensive.

Paper and books are relatively cheap. Basic laptops are only a few hundred bucks. It's been a few years, but we bought an entire year of material, all subjects, on CD-ROM (for 8th grade, IIRC) for $63 (that included shipping).

It doesn't take that much time.

Think about all the time you wasted in public school standing in line, waiting for the slow kids to catch up, waiting for the teacher to get the discipline cases under control, waiting for the bell to ring, etc., etc.

On a typical day, my younger daughter did ALL of her classwork in 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours. Sometimes, she'd work a day or two ahead and then take a day or two off (especially when the pool was open). Try doing that with publik educayshun.

Don't worry about the quality of your instruction. Any person of reasonable intelligence can teach their own kids just about anything. Or, better yet, supervise your own kid as he makes his way through material prepared by others.

Even better, you get to select the material. You don't have to take whatever fashionably nonsensical crap your local school district is dishing out this year.

My state requires homeschoolers to take the same standardized tests as the public schoolers; she tested in the high 80's in math, and the high 90's in everything else (and she's bright, but no genius).

Don't worry about the kid not getting properly socialized. Kids who are out and about with a parent during business hours on a weekday meet and interact with a much wider variety of people than a kid warehoused for the day with 20-30 kids exactly the same age.

Join a homeschool support group. Those groups often do some of the things that public schools do: field trips, sports, social events - except that you choose the type and quality of person your kid meets, not the State.

Enroll your kid in some kind of self-defense class. Teach him the importance of fighting back. It's not essential to win a playground scrape, just make it unpleasant for the aggressor. Most bullies will seek a softer target elsewhere, and stats indicate that people who fight back are less likely to be injured, or are injured less, than those who don't.

I didn't know how to fight, but when I couldn't take it any more, I picked up a metal folding chair and hit my tormentor over the head with it. I got in a bit of trouble (a nice quiet boy like me got a stern talking-to and a few days' detention) with the authoro-ties, but he left me alone after that.

Speaking of deadnaming, I think it is hilarious when they use "Drumpf". They really think that is a tool.

It makes me think that years of calling 0bama Barry Soetero has left its mark on their black little souls.
