I Listened to Chapo Trap House So You Don’t Have To

Today’s cultural vanguard of American socialism

1,982 words

No other form of media better encapsulates the socialist backlash in the English-speaking world against 21st century neoliberalism than the bizarre Marxist podcast Chapo Trap House, hosted by “large adult sons” Will Menaker, Felix Biederman, Matt Christman, Virgil Texas (I don’t know or really care what his real name is), and token female pundit Amber A’Lee Frost.

Soaked in biting condescension, bitter irony, millennial fatalism, and cartoonish intellectual self-confidence, these “failson” podcasts will cause you to lose all hope in the world around you, eager to either burn it all down — or just become another pontificating podcaster. Much of Chapo has a seductive quality. But there’s a lot of high-strung neuroticism that’s bound to activate your lizard brain, backwards masked beneath the mellow, calming, almost banal rhythm of chill conversation. Their moral and intellectual certainty does not stop them from occasional proud self-deprecation, beginning thoughts with “to continue further discussing this book I haven’t read.”

The meandering banter is sprinkled with middle-brow esoteric references, recognizable only to the well-read or well informed, at least about Leftist politics and The Simpsons. Judge Holden from Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian is a common trope to illustrate the barbaric, psychopathic evil of Chapo’s opponents. When Menaker references “the Satanic mills,” any student of Marx and Engels or Blake will feel his ears perk up. But this pomposity on parade uses knowledge to signal belonging to a defined in-group — in this case, young, angst-ridden Leftist millennials. The nationalist Right, especially those who are “extremely online,” are certainly familiar with this documented psychological phenomenon.

The Chapo podcast is an ensemble of unique voices, where pretty much any topic is covered with an unabashedly Marxist perspective. You will hear Menaker’s fast, biting, nasally voice whine about every vaguely right-of-center Republican as a neo-Nazi constituting an existential threat to humanity. Felix Biederman’s deep baritone will opine nostalgically on doing absolutely nothing of productive value, watching TV, and getting wasted at his friend’s house. In his nasally twang (yes, he’s also nasally), Christman will breathlessly insinuate that what happened in Charlottesville was about Nazis preparing to make genocide morally acceptable in the face of impending Third-World mass migration triggered by ecological collapse.

Oh, and class consciousness is hyper woke when you tune into Chapo. They have done videogame twitch streams to raise money for transgender people. They proudly embrace racial diversity in the media — as long as it does not affect their own podcast. Of course, that doesn’t mean there is a double standard there, because “we are literally just dudes who just do this,” as opposed to the media institutions, those propaganda bullhorns of capital. They see any vague notions of immigration restriction as aberrations of reactionary fascist white supremacy, especially when espoused by liberals whose stated goal is to prevent such a fascist backlash from occurring in the first place. They waste no time in railing against “white suburban culture” for its savage racism as they broadcast from an ivory tower loft in gentrified Brooklyn.

The hosts of Chapo deserve some credit for their commentary. They forcefully argue that the Iraq War was perhaps the greatest crime of the twenty-first century. (Of course, we here at Counter-Currents are some of the biggest opponents of wars for regime change engineered by a deep-state political establishment which serve no national security goals. The post-9/11 conflicts in the Middle East have dispensed death and destruction, with an endgame of refugee resettlement in Western societies.) The hosts further argue that powerful elites exalted as “rational, reasonable adults in the room” are in fact anything but, and oftentimes have significant blood on their hands from managing the neoliberal American empire’s distant wars. Ryan Faulk, of all people, brought up a similar point in the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque shootings, arguing that disaffected whites were responsible for far less death than their bipartisan ruling class, notwithstanding their assumed moral legitimacy in condemning any peaceful expression of pro-white sentiment as inherently violent.

I mentioned how these millennial podcasters see their opponents as evil. That is not an understatement, and this mindset is the engine that keeps their anger-laden rants going. I am further convinced that their burning, visceral hatred of anyone slightly to the right of Bernie Sanders (that’s not an exaggeration) animates much of their existence. I have heard there is an intrinsic value in having some form of self-doubt, and that you should keep your mind open to other perspectives, knowing you might be wrong. This way of thinking has led many of us to accept pro-white advocacy as morally legitimate despite living in a society that brands such feelings as the epitome of moral repugnance. Racist is perhaps the worst thing one can be called in 2019 America, a word that can effectively lead to one’s unpersoning in polite society. Even while I see pro-white metapolitics as morally legitimate, I still question my own beliefs from time to time, and I always listen to liberal and Leftist voices in the media to improve my arguments and those of my friends. Given our environment, we do not have the option of avoiding this hegemonic narrative.

Being of the Left does not lead to self-doubt, because you are told from childhood by the ruling class, elite institutions, politicians, schools, and the media that liberalism is morally righteous. Any deviation from the hegemonic liberal orthodoxy will put you on “the wrong side of history,” you are warned, and turn you into the ultimate emblem of heresy in our self-obsessed culture where what others think of us is held as sacrosanct. This lack of self-doubt has led to the rise of these podcasters and their ilk, who are so convinced of their perverted moral convictions, which have attempted to justify the most grotesque acts to which we are now, unfortunately, accustomed. Remember Andrew Dodson? He was a young man who attended a legal public protest, specifically Unite the Right in Charlottesville, and subsequently committed suicide after being doxxed and harassed by antifa and assorted Leftist social media mobs. These groups and individuals demanded that Dodson no longer have any access to a source of income merely for having the wrong opinions. Rather than disavow or disassociate, the gargoyles on Chapo’s Reddit page (which is still online) gleefully attacked Dodson’s funeral page online to the point where it had to be taken down. Is it really that wrong to hope that Hell exists for such soulless beings?

Menaker and his ilk are not offended by what their listeners do. They would most assuredly be offended by the notion that they are merely a symptom of neoliberal hegemony. In that case, they would immediately retort that they are not liberals, but rather explicitly anti-liberal Leftists. However, as Jack Buchanan at The American Sun argues, both Chapo Marxism and liberalism are inherently cut from the same cloth:

Liberals are animated by the same basic impetus that Chapo is capitalizing upon: the belief in Egalitarianism. More precisely, both camps are driven by a feverish desire to escape the gnawing pangs and relentless cognitive dissonance caused by subscribing to a view so plagued by easily observable and fundamentally unresolvable contradictions. Liberals think that a bureaucratic Neoliberal welfare state is the best way to advance their Egalitarian ambitions, whereas Chapo thinks that it’s the abolition of wage labor. Their foundational impetus is the same.

The shared moral framework of egalitarianism, which manifests in open borders, transgenderism, abolishing law enforcement, and other Left-wing projects, has led to the very same neoliberal establishment they claim to be fighting against warmly embracing Chapo Trap House. They have received a flattering profile from the elite media organ The New Yorker. They have written and published a New York Times bestseller. They are permitted to have a Patreon page which rakes in $124,000 per month. Does any of this sound like a cutting-edge workers’ revolution on the verge of taking down the bourgeois state? They will storm the gates for show, but they already have the keys. This is similar to when Lenin remarked that the German Social Democrats would not storm a train platform before first buying tickets. (See, I can make esoteric Marxist references, too.)

Contrast this state of affairs with the Dissident Right. Every day, Left-wing activists and so-called journalists, fight tooth and nail to erase us from the Internet. Our enemies are convinced that there is not one iota of difference between white supremacy and white separatism, even though the latter’s adherents simply want to live in their own homelands — a right they recognize for every ethnic group across the globe. While indigenous Europeans and those of the European diaspora strive for self-determination, which is guaranteed in the United Nations Charter, those who do not believe European peoples are entitled to such a right frame our desire for separation and self-government as being somehow oppressive of other races. This logic makes absolutely no sense — unless you hate people of European descent who value their heritage.

Such logic means that one of the primary purposes of media gatekeepers ranging from Republican Trump supporters at FOX News to Chapo Trap House is to ensure that our ideas never gain a platform. We are at the point where so-called journalists are attempting to ban AirBNB users from the platform simply for attending the upcoming American Renaissance conference. Global capital “is trying to build a world where people can belong anywhere and there are no strangers.” You can thank former Attorney General Eric Holder for establishing AirBNB as “woke” corporate citizens whose utmost goal is to weed out and destroy anything they deem “racism.” Silicon Valley, the former United States Attorney General, and the news media are just some of the forces aligned with the Marxist Left — who are very close to overthrowing the old established order and building their socialist utopia. They might even have some corporate sponsorship from McDonald’s and Goldman Sachs along the way. Although if you are even slightly to the right of center, you are not even allowed to have a bank account.

We on the Dissident Right are the only true opponents of the neoliberal corporate managerial class, given the magnitude of the establishment’s resources that have been unleashed against us. It is a weighty realization, one that is hard to come to terms with even in light of increasing pressure through censorship, deplatforming, and social ostracization. A close analogy in today’s world is the financial terror of the sanctions the US imposes on so-called rogue states which do not bend to American power. Chapo Trap House and its listeners will never come to such a realization, because they will never face significant opposition from the entrenched institutions that matter in America. In a way, that strengthens us on the Dissident Right, to the far Left’s detriment. We are still here, on the Internet and changing minds, nearly two years after the mass deplatforming and censorship post-Charlottesville. Of course, the growth of our movement is not as much due to our own messages, as figures like Greg Johnson have pointed out. Rather, our growth is more directly due to the simple realities of forced multiculturalism, replacement migration, the worship of diversity above all else, and increasing hatred expressed toward whites.

Chapo Trap House can get all the adulation they want from the entrenched establishment they only superficially oppose. In the end, it will not matter, because like every other iteration of neoliberalism over the last few decades, Chapo Trap House does not have the truth on its side in fervently opposing pro-white advocacy and all other forms of nationalism. Though I must admit that I agreed with Menaker’s resolve when he stated that after attending CPAC (yes, Chapo was allowed to attend CPAC), “these people need to be defeated.” Let’s adopt that resolve in confronting our opposition from the neoliberal corporate state in its latest “counter-cultural” manifestation.

        They all live around blacks, because they are anti-natalist (except for the woman), so they dont have to worry about sending their kids to school with them, and they enjoy the break in rents. Gulliani and Bloomberg all but crushed black crime in New York. Those who weren’t priced out, or imprisoned are disproportionately government workers and property owners.

        The DSA guys, white, Jewish or otherwise, all hate Israel for being a “settler colonial state”. Like Chompsky before them they would view the complete reconquista of Israel by Palestinians as no more concerning than the “white genocide” they both deny and applaud.
        At this point, the “what about Israel” line, literally only works on Ben Shapiro,? and his crew.

          I saw one of their ilk give a talk about fighting with Rojava, and it’s to his credit that he admitted he did so under cover of US artillery.
          I was only prepared to accept white nationalism, after years of imbibing Leftist defences of Kurdish nationalism, Irish nationalism, Palestinian nationalism, Basque nationalism . . .
          “Self-determination” just sounds so legitimate, whatever one thinks about any of these Peoples.
          It’s a surprise and a dissapointment to me that the frankly cultish, anti-white ethos of the Left has been strong enough to prevent more of them from making a similar connection.

    I listened to part of their CPAC podcast. One of the nasaly voiced guys recollected how embarrassed he felt when going for lunch to some franchise restaurant staffed by browns, on account of him looking similar to all those despicable conservatives due to his suite. Guy said something on the lines he was hoping all of the black staff spat in his food, apparently because this would have lessened his guilt for appearing too white and not “down” with all the diverse workforce. I believe that earlier in the show the same guy mentioned he was self-conscious about how his hair looked even when alone at his computer.

    This is what they are.

    Ostensibly railing against the very same neoliberal establishment that gives them license to spout their nonsense. Meanwhile, those on the other end of the spectrum get deplatformed, demonetized and unpersoned. If the phagocytes of the corrupt system attempt to destroy you, you know you are on the right side of history.

    These clowns will continue living their contradictory existence until the fort that protects them collapses like the house of cards that it is. Then a new edifice will be built on their bones and history will all but forget their antics. Good riddance.

            The right, even the far-right, isn’t really interested in censorship. He leaves left-wing comments up, even if they’re crude and vulgar. Whereas leftists’ immediate inclination is to ban or censor dissenting opinions.

    Reactionaries act like getting banned from twitter for breaking tos is tantamount to a literal century of tangible repression the far left has faced in America. Especially when far left accounts also get banned from social media pretty commonly, just (usually) not for vitriolic rascism.
    Im not even a chapo fan but its obvious yall just desperately wish for the same popularity and cash they get for having a half decent sense of humor and semi functioning brains. I also dont see how a leftie podcast not facing brutal state repression is proof of collusion between the marxist left and the capitalist state but leave it to the “””dissident””” right to cook up these nuclear takes.

    Chapo can be really funny, with exquisite comic timing, colorful references, and all that. They are excellent at dragging Neocons. And the racially ambiguous Amber Frost used to have large, beautiful breasts, before she got self-conscious and started excersizing all the time (I still wouldn’t kick her out of bed. Sorrynotsorry).

    More interesting is that her former(?) roommate Nick Mullen of the excellent Cumtown podcast, is an obvious racist (his love for black comedians aside), and Antisemite, who once forced his Jewish co-host to read the wikipedia entry on the Sampson Option aloud on air. He’s also yanggang in an mileu where like of loyalty to Bernie is seen as telltale sign of reactionary sympathies.

    Nick is perhaps too well-funded/spiritually depleted to ever embrace any kind of explicit rightist political effort, but he is an example of the kind of high IQ, “red-pilled by reality” white man that our movement has so far been unable to appeal to on our own merits

    Amber is easily one of the podcast’s clearest voices on worker’s rights, socialist organization, grassroots community involvement, and certainly one of the shows harshest critics of identity politics and virtue-signaling, all of which seems to merit your respective ire or heavily qualified concord…

    And all you’ve got for her is “token female pundit”?

    You really didn’t listen, Doug, you didn’t even try.

    The slime has arrived. Turns out all you need to trigger Marxists these days is not to challenge their ideas, but to call their balding fat e-celebs unoppressed.

    Idk why this showed up in my suggestions (probably all the laughing at Jordy p I did) but a deep, abiding lol at the notion from either extreme end (or anyone except the Amish and ecoterrorists, really) that they actually fight the system. Struggling only makes it stronger and more rigid as resources decline, and when it comes down this time, humanity will go with it.

    The fact that Chapo Trap House makes +100k a month from their Patreon only goes to prove that they do not actually represent the class of people that they claim to represent. REAL working class proletariat don’t have that kind of money to be throwing at a fucking podcast. The only reason Chapo Trap House makes that kind of money is because their message appeals exclusively middle class educated whites who generally have a lot of disposable income.

    Their fans are also the people least likely to revolt against the system because if they have that kind of disposable income that they can throw it at a fucking podcast, then their material conditions are clearly not intolerable enough for them to be in a revolutionary state yet.

    The truth is that actual working class people think guys like Chapo Trap House are a bunch of fags, have no interest in what you are selling, and have no interest in joining hands with the invaders sent to replace them to sing John Lennon songs together. They also think indie music sucks. Likewise, the Chapo guys have nothing but contempt for everything that REAL working class people hold dear: faith, folk, and fatherland.

    The mot juste here is poseur. Chap Trap House are poseurs.

      Can confirm.

      Working class guys know more about Budweiser, guns, and ATVs. Nothing about CTH.

      Weird as fuck that the audience they claim to be championing doesn’t give a flying fuck.

    This is just bad. Like, you can hide a weak argument in the language of critical theory, but it’s still a weak argument. The “dissident right” is regressive. Reframing nationalism as something tied to ethnic identity? Yeah, that’s nothing new. Maybe radical in its backwardness, but these arguments are old AF.

    I know the type that listens to CTH very well. You really only need to listen to a 30-60 second clip to recognize that crowd; they’re the type who finds the idea of being seen at an Olive Garden or Buffalo Wild Wings more offensive than any abuse of workers rights or any “microagression.”

    I can’t help but wonder if the barren urban lifestyle so many of these people will embrace will end up being eugenic for our race.

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Chapo Trap House. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Matt Christmans nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Chapo Trap House truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Matt’s existential catchphrase “Kill yourself and everyone around you” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Large failsons.

        It’s a meme about rick and morty that mocks the faux intellectualism of it’s fans it’s years old at this point. Their subreddit humor is mere imitation of MDE a right wing sub that was of course banned and was actually funny.

      “Kill yourself and everyone around you” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Large failsons.

      I don’t know what “failsons” means. However, in what sense is that phrase a reference, “cryptic” or otherwise, to Turgenev’s Fathers and Sons (which hardly merits being called a “Russian epic”; may I assume that you have not actually read it, nor even picked up a copy?)? Bazarov, the novel’s only real “nihilist”, says no such thing, nor ever implies it (nor does “nihilism” in the Turgenevian sense have anything to do with its later association with advocacy of revolutionary violence; it implicates the rejection of conventional authority in favor of empirically derived knowledge).

      You leftists are rarely more than faux-intellectual “poseurs”.

    Let me get this straight:

    The all-white millionaire’s club behind the Chapo Trap House podcast are praised by the establishment media, are allowed to raise millions through Patreon, have a book deal with Simon and Schuster and have never been banned or deplatformed once…

    …Yet they fancy themselves revolutionaries taking on the same p.c. establishment that openly embraces them?

    These guys are about as radical as Walter Mondale.

    These comments from lefties are funny. Not a single one of value. Not even attempts at insightfulness (or real humor).

    The Left is evil. Nothing more. Pinochet understood this. So did Joe McCarthy, among other heroes of humanity.

    “Chapo Trap House”

    The failure begins with the name. It’s neither clever nor amusing. Only lefties are anti-human enough to think that references to drug trafficking and addiction are inherently funny.

    They will storm the gates for show, but they already have the keys.

    Beautiful sentence. And absolutely true.

    Of course, pretending to storm a location that you already own can only impress people who are really dumb, which is obviously the case here, as the Chapo-fan comments demonstrate.

    Our enemies are convinced that there is not one iota of difference between white supremacy and white separatism, even though the latter’s adherents simply want to live in their own homelands.

    You could also add that they are equally convinced that there is no difference between white supremacy and a non-radical desire to, say, end or reduce non-white immigration. Any idea or preference touching on race and immigration that does not include “white” as a pejorative is “white supremacist.” In fact, all majority-white nations are at present “white supremacist,” which is why they need to be dismantled.

    Such over-reach may turn out to be a mistake, but since it seems most leftists sincerely believe what they say, they’re unlikely to notice.

    The Left is busily assembling a large collection of enemies.
