Looking From the Left

1,753 words

One of the lessons of 2020 is that the near future is every bit as unpredictable as the past, perhaps more so. Six months ago, no one would have predicted a replay of the disastrous Black Lives Matter stuff from the Left. Similarly, few would have predicted that the Democrat Party would have installed a dementia patient as their candidate after he had been rejected by their voters. Therefore, trying to look out from here to predict how all of this will unfold is no easy thing.

We can, however, look at the possibilities. The future may be unpredictable, but the range of options is not unlimited. We can further limit the scope by eliminating things like meteor strikes and accidental nuclear exchanges. Just sticking to the political, there are a number of ways the current situation can go. The first step in narrowing that list further is to consider what the Left will do over the next six months. The one thing that is clear is the Soros wing is driving events now.

One possibility is they realize this has turned the public against them and they pull the plug on their lunatics. This is what happened in 2016. When BLM started assassinating cops, the party quickly moved to defund them and instructed the media to stop talking about them. That could happen this time, as Biden is now running ads lying about his position on this stuff. He and the Bitter Bindi are pretending they have been for law and order all along. So far, the Left is not listening.

The other option is this is just the start. The civil war on the Left is now going to continue until the radicals seize control of the party and the institutions. The people running woke capital have the resources and confidence to keep going, so this looks like the most likely scenario. They could very well rig the election in November, without regard for how it looks. Appearances have not stopped them so far. We could be witnessing a woke version of the Bolshevik Revolution.

The first decision point, therefore, is what happens on the Left. As much as so-called conservatives want to make it about their ideas from the 1980s or Trump fans want to make it about their guy, the real driver is internal Left-wing politics. The fact is, the anti-white radicals have taken over the corporations and the academy. Now they are looking to take control of the Democrat Party, which of course will give them control of the government institutions controlled by the party.

There’s no reason, at this point, to think the Inner Party old guard has the sense or energy to fight off this assault from their radicals. The leadership is a collection of septuagenarians and octogenarians. Nursing homes have more vitality. Their underlings were selected for their stupidity, so they would never be a threat. The proof of this is their inability to contend with the anarchist unrest in their own cities. The idiot mayors in places like Seattle and Portland have no idea what to do.

Assuming the brown tide does indeed sweep over the remaining institutions and we end up living in a country controlled by social justice fanatics, we can expect the current anti-white pogroms to extend to all aspects of life. We are getting glimpses of what comes next in these corporate indoctrination sessions. Whites will be forced to swear loyalty oaths and go through struggle sessions. Those who resist will lose their jobs and maybe worse. Everywhere will be Portland.

You can buy The World in Flames: The Shorter Writings of Francis Parker Yockey here.

It is important to remember that five years ago no one thought banks would be canceling bank accounts based on politics. No one thought the technology giants would steal domain names and deplatform people. Before the alt-right turned itself into a raging dumpster fire, no one thought the ruling class would declare war on people as we have been seeing ever since. This unprecedented assault on our liberties by these corporate oligarchs was just a warning about what comes next.

A defining feature of the American Left is its habit of projecting onto others, things it is either doing at the moment or preparing to do in the future. The Opposite Rule of Liberalism is one of those universal truths of our politics. A corollary to that is the Left is always preparing for what it fears the most. In this case, they are signaling that they expect the radicals to win and they expect the white population to notice that they have been reduced to dhimmitude. They are planning for it.

The most likely first response of normal white people will be political protest, the same stuff we always see from the Right. Initially, a Tea Party 2.0 will try to get going, but slightly more aware of the racial component. You see this awareness even on super-safe media outlets like Fox News and talk radio. They talk around the issue, but they at least do so in a way that acknowledges reality. You still see bleating about Left-wing racism, but that has lost a lot of its punch.

The thing is, the Tea Party stuff assumes things that are not true, like elections matter and politicians listen to the voters. If the Left rigs the 2020 election, only drug addicts and libertarians, two groups with tremendous overlap, will continue to think we live in a society ruled by laws. The “hey let’s get together and get our guy elected” approach will not get very far with people who suddenly think their elections are rigged. This is why the Left is unconcerned about this possibility.

A possibility the Left does worry about is one where they rig the election and it is obvious to everyone. On election night Trump wins the key states by a slim margin and slowly “newly discovered ballots” are found in rural mailboxes that flip the necessary number of states. This triggers mass protests, like the color revolutions that have turned up in corrupt countries over the last couple of decades. Trump actively disputes the result, causing even more unrest.

This is something the Left thinks is a possibility, which is why they keep planting stories in the media about Trump refusing to accept the result. It’s why media hacks keep doing hand-wringing concern posts with titles like, “Trump Could Still Break Democracy’s Biggest Norm.” What follows is a call for the military to stage a coup or the CIA to assassinate him. The Left is thinking through how they must respond to a populist revolt in response to their election rigging.

Of course, violence is always a possibility. Despite the manufactured studies by the Left and the few random nut jobs cast as white extremists, there has been very little Right-wing violence thus far. In fact, the carny acts that are usually drawn to these street protests have stayed home and allowed BLM and Antifa to own the show. It’s why they have been forced to stick with the absurd “peaceful protest” nonsense. They own the violence happening in the streets right now.

In a world where elections are rigged and white people no longer think they have legal recourse, that old revolutionary spirit could flare up among many. One way that could manifest is through propaganda of the deed, as the anarchist says. This is why the Inner Party is having the security apparatus declare “white supremacists” as the greatest threat to the country. Doing this while far-Left gangsters ravage major cities is a nice touch, but it suggests the Left is genuinely worried about this.

If you could beat an honest answer out of them, most of the people supporting and financing the unrest are probably puzzled by the lack of resistance. They are sending mobs into nice white areas to assault middle-class white people at restaurants and shopping areas. They have looted major cities. Left-wing politicians are openly declaring war on white people. Despite the overt war on white people from the top, little in the way of organized resistance has emerged yet.

Either the Left has much more in store for white people or they are sensing a change in general attitudes, but either way, they are planning for a response. There are tens of thousands of disaffected young white males with military training. Not only are they familiar with the use of weapons, but they are also trained in small unit tactics. If the degenerates of Antifa can organize a summer of rage, smart white guys could punch much higher. In this regard, the Left is being prudent.

That’s why the Left wants the security agencies to put “white supremacist” up there with Islamic terrorists and the Russian mafia. They are planning for organized violence from the people they expect to keep attacking. If and when white people wake up and realize what is happening and decide to do something about it, the Left wants the institutions they control to be fully prepared. They seem to think they will be battling something closer to terrorism than peaceful political resistance.

We can therefore expect a new push to characterize any resistance to the ascendant as the same as Islamic terrorism. We’re getting a glimpse of that with the tech oligarchs organizing to label Kyle Rittenhouse a mass murderer. Like the old communist regimes, even the slightest resistance to the Left will be met with over the top language and an extreme response from the rulers. Even if armed resistance never materializes, society will be organized as if it is imminent.

The most likely outcome at this point on the timeline, therefore, is we arrive at something like a highly feminized version of Cold War Albania. Instead of bunkers dotting the land and citizen militias scanning the horizon for foreign invaders, it will be intersectional enforcers planted in every company and institution, charged with locating white supremacists. Society will be organized around fighting the specter of white supremacy and white privilege.

    BLM is not left-wing: they attack and murder people for their skin colour and ethnicity, they are financed by the biggest capitalist trusts, they are a racial hate group. By definition, they are as extreme right-wing as it gets. That they masquerade themselves as „anarchists“ does not change these facts. No sane person can support or tolerate this travesty.

      Left-wing = Opposed to Western Civilization/Whites

      Right-Wing = Defends Western Civilization/Whites

      They have never truly meant anything else. All right-wing ideology is manifestation of love for our heritage, all left-wing ideology is rationalization for hatred of it.

        Unfortunately Left Wing = controlled by Jews / Right wing = controlled (or at least cowed), by Jews.

        Dangerously useless labels the both of them now.

        We must deal in white / not-white — Pro-white or Anti-white — that is where “the rubber meets the road”, that is where truth can be found.

          I also believe that all disorganized and poverty-stricken ‘nations’ on the planet are being stirred up to blame all their problems on “America’, ‘Europe’ ‘The West’, ‘The Colonialists’, ‘The Slave Owners’, ‘The Rich’, ‘The Capitalists’, etc. — have I missed any others on the ‘Let’s Blame Them’ list? Oh, of course, the entire White Race — Me and Thee. Needless to say, I am most concerned about being on ‘The White List” because that means I am in some person’s misguided sights, and I can only hope they never learned to shoot straight.

          I don’t have to remind you that we are outnumbered at approximately 10 to 1 worldwide, but our biggest wall of safety is that we can usually out-think and out-shoot most of them. However, with the rash of anarchy in our country over the past few months, the whole world has seen exactly what their little minds can do when gathered into groups. The Russian Revolution was not televised or streamed into every home and wigwam on the planet, but this dust-up of burning, looting and rioting we’ve been experiencing is quite a vivid lesson to the entire disorganized mobs in Congo-like villages worldwide as to what is possible. I personally think we are in real trouble.

        That’s ridiculous.; “Left-wing = Opposed to Western Civilization/Whites Right-Wing = Defends Western Civilization/Whites” That’s got to be the most superficial and erroneous distinction between the political left and right I’ve ever heard. Their objective distinction has absolutely nothing to do with Western civilization, or one’s relationship to it, and plays out in contexts in which Western civilization doesn’t even manifest as concept, even implicitly, or even in which these roles totally reversed. In African countries political movements that favor Western civilization are categorized on the left and those that favor African culture on the right. There are countless other examples.

      Are you even paying attention? Although the violent rioting from BLM and Antifa has caused the public to sour in recent weeks, most White Americans agree in their hearts with the anti-racist morals that BLM and Antifa stand for. Violent riots don’t change that fact. No one actually sees BLM as a “racist hate group.”

      The fact is, it was White Leftists who let BLM off the leash, and it is White Leftists who are the fuel that makes antifa churn. Sure, opportunistic Jews and cynical corporations fund them, but if the (white) foot soldiers didn’t exist in the first place, there would be nothing to fund. The buck stops with the filth that is Leftist ideology, and with the traitorous Whites who believe in it

        I think that what Carston is trying to say is not that most White Americans view BLM as a racial hate group, but that this is what it objectively is, regardless of the way anybody views it, and that, thus, it isn’t objectively a left-wing organization, but just using that label, and presentation, as a front to advance it’s violent, racist, hate-spawned political objectives, which, in objective reality, mirror those to the most violent and irrational White supremacist, racist organizations, organizations typically regarded as extreme right-wing, but in Blacks’ favor. Disdain for this organization, combined with right-wing identification, in most counter-currents readers guarantee that it’ll be an unpopular
        position here, but, an entirely cogent, coherent argument could be made for the interpretation of BLM as a, Black supremacist, extreme right-wing organization,
        because, ultimately, it isn’t actually race that forms the objective distinction
        between political left and right, that is, simply being pro-black doesn’t make something left-wing, and simply being pro-white doesn’t make it right-wing.

      I agree with you Carston, but it’s too great a swing to expect most counter-currents readers to, because, of coarse, they identify as right-wingers, and hate BLM, and could never have it on the same side of the political spectrum as them, even though most of them are fully aware that the political spectrum is a load of bologna. However, in my opinion, “anarchists” is quite an apt way to describe BLM and groups like it, as anarchism is what they’re creating on the streets of America today, and I don’t think anarchism should be regarded as a leftist ideology more generally, as I find it wholly at odds with socialist ideology, but that’s a whole other story, anyway, I’d never call BLM a genuinely leftist organization, same for Antifa.

    The rioters quail in the face of real resistance like Kyle. We would only need to send one Kyle to each city to restore law and order.

    What I think has been going on though is not a failure of democratic municipal authorities to maintain law and order, but an active complicity. The leftists are punishing white middle American trump voters for having elected him. It’s like they are paddling or switching us. First, they shut down white local small businesses with the Covid lock downs, while conspicuously leaving open the big box distributors such as Walmart. The leaders of those organizations are part of the oligarchy and they are fumigating out the vestiges of local competition once and for all. That was the first beating. Next have been the blm and antifa riots to further loot and destroy white local economies. This is all negative cost imposed by the elites for having elected and continuing to support trump.

    You see, first they attacked trump directly with impeachment and Russia collusion in an attempt to turn authoritarian personalities against him, but it didn’t work as easily as it had in the past. So now they are directly imposing costs on us until we repent and install one of their creatures, which of course could equally be a Jeb? or a Rubio. That’s what I think is going on.

    This is your country on Jew. The Jews hate White people and want them either dead or enslaved. Everything they say Whites did to Blacks and Jews they either have done, are trying to do or expect to be able to do in the near future.

    Very good article and appears to predict things reasonably accurately. Some claims that it makes I can indeed verify. I know that in corporate America major tranformations and taking place in the wake of the BLM protests. Previously whites who made an inadvertant comment or faux pas involving Blacks would be terminated immediately and a Black appointed to their position. Now, even when careful not to make any such statements, some of these are being terminated and their positions given over to Blacks. This is happening at the very highest levels of at least some Fortune 500 companies. Thus, for skilled and educated Blacks, the BLM protests of 2020 have been highly profitable.

    I think “Z-man’s” prediction of increased government vigilence against white supremacists will in fact be the only official government response to come out of this whole BLM summer. Also if Biden gets in I expect increased government harassment of on-line forums and news groups.

    *on a technical note, when I post a comment here I get an email saying I must click a link to verify. Always when I click the link I then get some sort of error like a 404 error. Sometimes I still see my comment posted nevertheless.

    I think you’re entirely right about society now being cleverly pushed by the Left into believing that Whites are only to be seen as organized “Racists, White Nationalists, and/or White Supremacists”, all automatically co-related as one lump in the same sentence. This is one problem we absolutely face at this time. But I am sure we have scholars and fine writers here that can begin building a wall of resistance, through essays, books and posts, that carefully explain the differences among those three, and other threads of White objections to the mud-slinging against all Whites now. We already have many marvelous books and essays in print, but the Left has cleverly banned them as best they could. We must overcome this somehow, and get OUR words out there. I am sure there are fine minds already working on this.

    Further, of great importance, I must emphasize that I have never read a word about ‘organized violence’ in any of the publications of Counter Currents, and that is our strongest selling point as well as our greatest defense. This doesn’t mean we can’t get tough, but our writings should never urge others to get violent.

      ” but our writings should never urge others to get violent.”

      I agree but in possibly less than a year we could be deplatformed anyway. I expect the Left/ Progressives to dispense with the niceties of the appearance of law if Biden gets elected. Technically it’ll still be legal but they’ll now be able to use activist judges freely to target any white or white organization they deem problematic. Almost all whites are either oblivious to the turn of events or scared stiff and immobilized with fear.

    “intersectional enforcers planted in every company and institution, charged with locating white supremacists.”
    That hit hard, I can very much see this being prepared in my company already (Silicon Valley tech company) with the recent appointment of a diversity chief and approval from the CEO of a public comment that “its not enough for white people not to be racist, they have to be actively anti-racist”. I have 20 years to go before I can retire. I can’t see how I’m going to make it.
