The cockroach media

The cuckservative media is rather like cockroaches. It doesn't matter how much they fail, it doesn't matter how often they are wrong, it doesn't matter that no one reads them and they have no influence, they just don't die off and disappear. The Week celebrates the news of Jonah Goldbergs new and entirely redundant publication as more of what people already don't want.
What if we had a center-right publication, broadly in favor of globalized free trade and deregulation and hawkish on foreign policy, whose columnists really hated President Trump, even when he does things they otherwise agree with, like spit in Vladimir Putin's face?

But The Washington Post already exists, you say. Exactly. Which is why I cannot figure who the audience for Steve Hayes and Jonah Goldberg's new journalism project is supposed to be. According to Axios, the former editor of The Weekly Standard and the founder of National Review Online are "seeking investors" for "a reporting-driven, Trump-skeptical" conservative periodical.

Of course they are. "Generic white #NeverTrump conservative" is already the most overrepresented type in American media. There are approximately 200 of these people in the United States, and every single one of them has a column in a major newspaper and a book about why Drumpf is the logical and polar opposite of certain ideals supposedly embodied in whatever Tocqueville quotes their research assistants have just pulled up for them. They are the same people who have spent the last two decades insisting that all the things that actually keep people voting for the GOP against their own economics interests — opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage — are yucky. They are often referred to as "neocons," but this appellation is insulting to the legacy of Irving Kristol and Christopher Lasch. A better one is "metro-conservatives," i.e., think-tank grifters.

#NeverTrump types are desperate to convince readers that clichés about "entrepreneurship," endless war, and moaning about the Founding Fathers are still cool. But nobody listens. They had their shot with roughly 15 other candidates in 2016, and the American people rejected all of them, one by one. If your ideas are so bad that social conservatives would rather vote for a twice-divorced serial philanderer than pull the lever for any of the indistinguishable blue-blazered frat boys who are mouthpieces for them, maybe you should rethink what you're doing. If the Never Trumpers had gotten the candidate they wanted, Hillary Clinton would have won Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

They know this. They also couldn't care less. Why should they, when the paychecks continue to cash? They have been insulated from the badness of their ideas for decades; this isn't going to change, probably ever.
The reason these cockroach media publications keep popping up as fast as they fail is that they are funded by corpocracy in order to gatekeep the Right. The Intellectual Dark Web, The Daily Wire, Bulwark, and Jonah Goldberg's Nameless Project are all designed to keep conservatives and Christians on the globalist reservation.

I really don't think they understand certain things.

First, there is more to life than a dollar bill. Many people on the right will prioritize social issues over economic issues.

Second, their Ivy League snobbery does not play well outside their little clique.

Third, they lose. The Plutocrat wing of the GOP staggers from defeat to marginal victory. The only BIG wins have been when the populists, like Reagan, Gingrich, or Trump, have had the helm.

We're onto their little rent-seeking operation. And we're not playing any more.

I suppose Bill Kristol could be secretly trolling the left.

I mean think about it.

Everybody under the sun calls this guy a "cuck." And he starts a webzine with the word "Bul" in the title? Come on!

The jokes wrote themselves.

The Bull-Worker. The Bull-Seeker. The Bull-Wank.

He had to know what was coming. The fact that he sent a pro-abortion liberal to cover CPAC almost proves that he's trolling his Silicon Valley patrons.

One wonders whether one might make some money republishing Poor Richard's Almanack under Jonah Goldberg's name. Surely there would be some grant money in it. And neo-cons might actually pay for subscriptions, even if only for the horoscopes.

Have the Jews figured out that no one is listening to them telling us about ourselves anymore? The disingenuous rank hypocrisy, the self-serving frames, the snide assertions of unreality, the 'hi fellow white person, I like Apple Pie - be replaced' the totally gormless, vacuous assertions of plainly falsified axioms - it's all transparent now. The Goyim know.

Blogger Johnny March 02, 2019 1:10 PM  

Sometimes in politics when there is strong institutional support, they will cycle in a new guy to replace the old guy who gets discredited. Sounds like they are starting to do that with news agencies. As the Weekly Standard fails, in comes the new one.

What irritates me the most are the people who are agreeable to my way of thinking but just won't get the institutional bias. They say stuff like it attracts viewers, if it bleeds it leads or whatever, but fail to notice it is selective. If it bleeds it leads, but only if it fits the narrative. Otherwise it is the old illusion to a tree that falls in a forest. Did it happen? Only if it gets reported.

It's basically ideology shopping for wealthy elites. If one newspaper or propaganda outlet fails they just fund a different one. The tell is that these newspapers don't actually make any profit and wouldn't survive without being propped up.

Blogger Johnny March 02, 2019 1:41 PM  

>>It's basically ideology shopping for wealthy elites.

I assume the basic reason for having a mainstream media company in your conglomerate is that it is a covert way of getting a payoff for stressing ideology ahead of money in the operation of the media company. You pick it up with favorable treatment for the rest of the rest of the members of the group. Essentially impossible to prove and therefore safe and effective.

One of the many things I like about President Trump is how his existence haz so clearly driven the cucks into such uncontrollable acts of revealing their cuckishness. They are continuing to lose control over the narrative these faux-cons spew for the sole purpose of keeping all non-insane Americans from rising up.

Dude, today's Democrats are so whack, they actually think that national socialists are of the right. Literally, everyone to the right of Trotsky is a fascist to them (which is the real reason why they're outraged to be compared to Stalin -- they would never be so conservative). I know there's always been an ideological split, but this is not normal; see Tim Pool's September video, We Are In A Cold Civil War And It's Getting Worse.

Yes, I think that he triggers their hindbrains so that they lose control of themselves. Basically, in order to deceive unhyphenated Americans effectively, they would first have to understand how we see the world; so they would have to be able to see themselves as the bad guys. And they can't do that, because they're just very clever NPCs.

This garbage does still hold the attention of one group: Boomers.

And I'm talking about the "good" Boomers who voted for Trump. But they are incorrigible. There are a few of them in one of my, ahem, affinity groups. Almost everyone else in the group is somewhere on the spectrum from purple-pilled civ-nat to neoreactionary to alt-right, and constantly tries to educate the Boomers and teach them how to actually think about politics. Sometimes they even seem to absorb some of it, and show some glimmers of understanding. Then, the next day they're back to spamming the group with tedious think-pieces from National Review or Blaze Media or Daily Wire. And they love love LOVE gossip about left-wing celebrities. There's just no way to break them out of their mental prison.

I sometimes wonder what would actually happen if all of these silly neocon rags died overnight. Would the Boomercons start reading Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, and edgier sources on YouTube and social media? Or would they revert to the 24/7 propaganda at MSNPC and the Carlos Slim Blog and its many copycats?

Maybe this cuckservative spew really does serve a purpose, as a sort of morphine drip for the cucks who know that the legacy media is poison, yet don't have the intestinal fortitude to face the hard facts. It keeps them pulling the R lever and that's about the best one can hope for from them.

Whether this is good or bad, I don't know. It probably helps win elections in the short term, but also warps incentives for the pols themselves and keeps the Republican party in thrall to neoliberal globalism.

Left-wing rich guys are financing "The Bulwark". Google and God knows who else, is financing "National review" - so I have doubt some left-wing Billionaire will toss a few coins to Goldberg/Hayes. The whole point of these characters is to have someone the Left-wing MSM can point to and say "Look even conservative X agrees that...."

You can't get a "reasonable conservative" Gig in the MSM, unless you agree to certain things, like "Immigration is always good" Russia is bad" "White Racism is the worst thing ever" "Israel is the greatest country ever" "Tariffs are bad" etc. However, once you've passed the MSM gatekeeper, you're set for life. You can be wrong on everything, read by no one, or regarded as a Joke. You're in the club, baby!

Yep, it's amusing, but who gives a shit?

Steve Hayes actually did some pretty good investigative journalism while at the Weekly Standard, and Jonah wrote one OK book.

Unfortunately these idiots do have some braindead grassroots supporters, who only read neocon sources, and thus imagine themselves very informed, especially about foreign policy. They are even more frustrating to try and engage than SJWs.

It's a media article. You have to expect some parenthetical disinfo even when they're nailing the truth in the main point. He also said it's the most overrepresented group in media, when of course it's #2 behind outright leftists. The bashing is still great.

The Left likes to claim its humble origin as an effort to help out the downtrodden, to help out the working class and to help out the poor.

This was always a lie.

The Left wants to destroy the whole of our society and rebuild it anew. The Left is insidious and basically informed by the rebellion of Satan.

Don't you see how easily the Left has abandoned its call to fight for the basic "blue collar" man?

This was ALWAYS a rhetorical position of the Left.
