Truth Doesn’t Win WarsJim Goad
I fell asleep early on Election Eve because I lost faith in the federal government — and the very idea that the United States was a sustainable nation — years ago. Ever since November 3, I’ve been disinterested in the issue of election fraud because I don’t think there’s much of an “America” that’s left to save. My gut feeling is that no matter who got elected president, we’re already well into a post-American phase and that the USA is a bankrupt and irredeemable enterprise. What good is one last round of chemo if the patient is already terminal?
But on Wednesday when I was informed that a jolly band of MAGAteers had stormed the Capitol building in DC, I switched on the livestreams and paid close attention.
My initial gut reaction was not one of sudden empowerment and a sense that we, the people had finally taken action. Instead, it was a deep sense of queasiness at the inevitable blowback. As a part-time student of history, I’m painfully aware of how governments react when you try to overthrow them and fail.
Before you commence with the inevitable barking and name-calling, I need to clarify that I don’t think what happened was morally wrong — I don’t make moral judgments, ever — but I think it was tactically shortsighted to the point of absurdity.
I realize that many of the people who showed up in DC at Trump’s behest to protest what they see as a stolen election — only for him to stab them all in the back — were acting out of a deep sense of betrayal and alienation. Many of us do things that feel fantastic in the moment but wind up affecting us negatively for a lifetime. I can personally bear witness to the fact that finally losing your temper and hitting someone who’s been persistently threatening, attacking, and taunting you feels fantastic — until you wind up in prison for it.
When I told Atlanta-based lawyer Sam Dickson that I’d be writing about the Capitol Siege, he insisted that my task was to set the record straight and correct all the rampant misinformation. He also told me I should point out the hypocrisy of the same people who talked about “peaceful protests” and killing cops all summer were now calling this a “riot” and cheering on the fact that a cop — apparently a black one — shot a white woman dead when she was already surrounded by police and posed no direct physical threat.
I became a writer because I care about the truth. It took about thirty years before I realized that hardly anyone shares my concern. It took the same amount of time to realize that people only care about being on the side of power — or at least on the “good” side as they fight the “evil” people who currently hold power — and feel absolutely no shame when you point out their egregious hypocrisies.
But as the saying goes, truth is the first casualty of war. And if you’re lying bleeding on the ground because you’ve just been shot, I doubt you’ll find much comfort in the fact that, hey, at least you weren’t a hypocrite.
Morality doesn’t win wars. Neither does being factually correct. Being the most efficient killer is what wins wars. So does monopolizing the propaganda outlets.
Did the people who stormed the Capitol on Wednesday have any idea what the fuck they were doing, or was it all a big video game and selfie opportunity for them? What they did was the equivalent of crossing enemy lines in the midst of a war, only to fart loudly on camera. Did they think they would frighten Congress into reconsidering the topic of election fraud? Well, it backfired. Badly.
I’ve never staged a coup nor plotted a coup, but my instincts tell me that if you’re going to attempt one, take it to its logical conclusion. If you don’t, you’ve greatly strengthened those you were trying to overthrow. This might have been the most half-assed attempted coup in world history.
What’s bitterly ironic is that this failed coup was staged by many of the same people who have been acting like frigid schoolmarms and sternly lecturing us about “optics” ever since Charlottesville. Well, what happened Wednesday was a textbook display of mental optardation. If your whole shtick involves worshiping cops and touting “law and order,” it’s bad optics to bludgeon police, one of whom allegedly died from being smashed in the skull with a fire extinguisher. If you worship the Constitution, it’s bad optics to construct a gallows with which to hang elected officials. It’s bad optics to gloat about how you’re going to blow out Nancy Pelosi’s brains on live TV.
If good optics is about winning over the normies, polls show that anywhere from 71% to 92% of normies disapproved of what happened Wednesday. If good optics are about uniting Republicans to fight the Democrats, a YouGov poll found that Republicans were evenly split about what happened — 45% supported it and 43% opposed it. This latest stunt definitely did not “unite the right.”
The normally Trump-friendly New York Post predicted that this event will be used to discredit everything about Trump and his supporters from here until the end of time:
On Wednesday, Jan. 6, a line was drawn in the sand. Before that date, critics had unfairly slammed Trump supporters for being violent, resentment-fueled lunatics for four years, but they couldn’t point to any major proof of it. . . . Then, on Jan. 6, the critics were proved right, as thousands of Trump fans — goaded by the president during a rally — encircled the US Capitol and stormed it while Congress tried to certify the election. . . . Trump condemned what happened. These people risked their lives for someone who didn’t have their back.
That’s the most startling, sad, and contempt-inducing thing about Trump’s continued support — I wonder how many times he needs to disavow these people before they finally get the hint.
The blowback has been swift and predictable, and it’s only begun. Trump was banned from Twitter, and by the time this essay sees the light of day, the MAGApede Twitter alternative known as Parler will probably have been permanently shuttered.
Noted ex-German political sage Arnold Schwarzenegger compared the siege to Kristallnacht. BuzzFeed — for once — did a cop-sympathetic piece about how black Capitol Police had to deal with “Racist-Ass Terrorists,” but the article didn’t make a peep about how one of those cops shot a white woman dead. Senator Dick Durbin resurrected his “Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act,” the first line of which reads as follows: “White supremacists and other far-right-wing extremists are the most significant domestic terrorism threat facing the United States.”
Problem is, that’s not much different than Trump’s position. He rewarded black America for rioting all summer with a $500-billion “Platinum Plan,” while he never once addressed white Americans as a political constituency and his Justice Department aggressively targeted white nationalists.
I fully expected the gaslighting, deplatforming, and utter contempt for free speech to get worse under Biden. What I didn’t expect was that a group of Trump supporters would hand-deliver Biden and everyone who’s propping up his carcass an excuse to feel justified about bringing the boot down on our necks that much harder. From now on, the powers that be will equate any allegations of electoral fraud with violent domestic terrorism. In war, truth doesn’t matter. But it’s dumb to hand your enemy a loaded gun, then walk away claiming victory.
I suspect that a lot of die-hard Trump supporters are caught in a spiral of cognitive dissonance because if there’s one thing humans hate doing, it’s admitting that they were suckered.
Some say that the federal government’s power is not insurmountable and that the very fact that protesters were able to penetrate into the Capitol building exposed the government’s vulnerability. But what if, just like Charlottesville, they walked right into a trap?
If there’s anything positive to come out of what happened on Wednesday, it’s the remote chance that millions of people became aware that the government sees us as enemies whether we like it or not. It’s impossible to work within a system that’s designed to eliminate you.
Violence and propaganda are the only things that win wars, and all governments exist to monopolize violence. Voting only gives you the false impression that your voice matters. When there is no apparent political solution and no common ground, things tend to get violent.
They taught me back in journalism school that the only speech the First Amendment does not protect is when one calls for the immediate violent overthrow of the government. By that standard, the Declaration of Independence was an Anglophobic document consisting of nothing but violent white-supremacist terrorist hate speech.
So although I realize that violence is what makes the world go ’round, I’m not so naive that I’d directly advocate violence. I’m simply observing that the pretense of democracy shrouds the reality that the main business of government is to monopolize violence.
I’m a fighter by temperament. Social ostracism doesn’t shut me up. Attempts at shaming don’t shut me up. Multiple near-death experiences haven’t shut me up. The only thing that could shut me up is a bullet to the head, Ashli Babbitt style.
I wonder how many others are fighters, though. The imminent clampdown is going to be insane. We’re heading into a dark blizzard, and if there’s even a remote chance of turning the tide, I’d suggest all you nitpicking purity-spiralers put aside the endless doctrinal infighting and focus instead on the common enemy. This isn’t about scene status — it’s about life and death.
Until very recently, Ukrainian lightweight boxer Vasily Lomachenko was considered the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world — almost unbeatable. In the run-up to his recent bout with Brooklyn-born Teofimo Lopez, he warned that his opponent was in over his head:
“I don’t think he fully gets it. It seems to me that he doesn’t understand. I hope to drag him into deep waters, down to the bottom, and keep him underwater without air.”
Lopez wasn’t intimidated. He beat Lomachenko and snatched all four of his championship belts.
I suspect the federal government is gearing up to drag us into deep waters and keep us underwater without air. But until you stop trusting the plan and realize the government is not your friend, you are all doomed to drown.
I hope I’m wrong here. I take no comfort in suspecting that I’m right. In fact, it’s the worst feeling in the world.

Looks like a controlled demolition of an inconvenient movement that Trump accidently got out in front of for a few years and lead into a trap.
Also it’s been around 30 years in the making as the state has stripped factories OFFSHORING to China, flooding the labor market with coolies domestically and terrorising the plebs with pet apes. Amazed the social explosion wasn’t a great deal more destructive.
“Noted ex-German political sage Arnold Schwarzenegger”
For most Germans, this Austrian is not only linguistically incomprehensible, but also intellectually embarrassing. (He himself, on the other hand, is embarrassed by nothing except his “Nazi” father.) No coincidence that he became California governor rather than Austrian politician by exercising not his brains but his brawn. This man has more to do with American expectations than with Europe.
But what if, just like Charlottesville, they walked right into a trap?
The evidence overwhelmingly points in that direction. VDare had people right there who saw well behaved, middle-aged people waving flags and singing God Bless America on the Capitol steps while a noticeably inimical cadre of violent 20-somethings were throwing rocks and smashing windows. The question of cui bono generally points to the real perps in these false flag operations, which I’d assume for the purposes of investigation were Antifa stringers being paid by BLM under direction of the FBI or CIA.
The Chinese Dissident Epoch Times is the closest thing to a pro-American newspaper existing today:
You nailed it and here’s the proof — the FBI used this Agent Provocateur who was right next to the Lady when she was gunned down — he was “filming” it — the only reason he was arrested was he went on Local TV and ran his mouth – – then of course he got the “Get Out Of Jail Free Card” the FBI issued him —
The FBI is Antifa by the way — they ran the “kidnapping” of Gov. Whitmer to help her get some good PR to use when she needed it, the guy who set up the other fools was given a “Get Out Of Jail Free Card” by them like this guy — Whitmer is as NWO/Soros as it gets so they gave her a hand of course in the PR Dept. against her “enemies” — the FBI is basically a KGB for the NWO Globalist Agenda —
I still can’t figure out if Trump is in on it or just incredibly stupid at times? Who appoints their enemies — like Wray et al — to jobs where they can destroy you? Who didn’t know that violence would surely happen–and most definitely a False Flag – – at his stupid “Event”?
He has dragged a lot of people down with him who aren’t Billionaires — this BLM/Antifa guy inside the Capitol is your FBI at work (notice the Mainslime Media has not mentioned him, surely there were many more none of which will be arrested if they don’t go on Local News and brag like this tool)– this is the FBI of the mass Vegas shooting and all the rest they do to us — anyone not getting this by now is a special kind of stupid: https://national-justice.com/black-lives-matter-organizer-seen-entering-capitol-building-crowd-likely-fbi-agent-provocateur
As a non-American I’m quite content with Capitol siege. Like many things american, it ended farcically, but dealt a small and nice blow to Empire’s legitimacy abroad. Granted, USA will behave as if nothing happened and continue their moral grandstanding with usual confidence alas, there will be more people capable of resisting the “Leader of the Free World”. And given the fact that most american compradors chained themeselves to the liberal narrative, I say there are some promising glimmers of hope.
In the future however, it’d be more prudent and sound to refrain from similar displays of mob warfare. Bison Men are entertaining, but can hardly harm anyone with their mighty horns, especially when the real centers of power lie beyond Capitol, not to mention the White House. The ruling class (both real and their public representatives) will consolidate in the coming months so dissidents should be concerned with survival and building their power bases where Sauron’s Eye is least perceptible. Strategies and tactics have already been developed, they just need proper applying.
“As a non-American I’m quite content with Capitol siege. Like many things american, it ended farcically, but dealt a small and nice blow to Empire’s legitimacy abroad. ”
I am content, too.
The Capital Siege was a symbolic affair of inestimable importance that sent a message not only around the world, but, much more importantly, it sent a message to the citizens of The United States who we are.
A reaffirmation of who we are, so to speak, and who we will insist on being.
Whether one refers to the Articles of Confederate or the ensuing Constitution, the original Anglo-American ideas are a brilliant batch of principles whose time will never be up.
The siege was a visual display of what had been building since 2010, with the inception of The Tea Party – a restatement of our collective state of mind, unattenuated by Corporate/Globalist money.
Not a historic, but a hysterical moment in history revealed itself to us on the steps and in the halls of the Government Building. The “storming of the Capitol,” milked with relish by the mainstream press today, was neither a coup d’etat, nor an armed insurrection, nor even a terrorist attack.
The action was nothing more than a chaotic, haphazard happening. The implosion of the mobilized but leaderless masses was essentially non-violent. Measured by the same standards that the mainstream press applied to the “Black Lives Matter” looting, it passes for a “mostly peaceful protest.” The shock value and symbolic nature of the “storming of the Capitol” is indeed tremendous and will be savored to the hilt by Trump’s opponents.
The reality-setting power of the media “truth systems” is well known. Scandals are only brought into the collective consciousness when they come from the right. The representation of an incident as a media spectacle is more effective and thus more “real” than the real act. We are therefore in a hostile matrix that is more than “unfair.”
Like in a football game, where the referee whistles sharply against us, but ignores every infraction in the opponent, it does us no good here to respond with counterfouls. That is what we are waiting for. The only thing in our power is to provide the opponent with as little material substrate as possible for their distortions and exaggerations. In short, we cannot force them to tell the truth, but we can force them to lie absurdly and visibly.
Unfortunately, the best material was indeed delivered before the Capitol from which the media, think tanks and “experts” will continue to make political capital for years to come. Trump’s plan to remain hegemon in the Republican Party and expand his influence via the “stop-the-steal” movement could now be thwarted.
Numerous wavering senators, whom Trump painstakingly persuaded to support his fight against Biden, took the opportunity to distance themselves verbosely. They voted “even before the rooster crowed three times” implicitly in favor of Biden’s presidency by raising no objections to the election. The evidentiary submissions of the Trump-loyal senators were also paradoxically undercut by the “Capitol storm.” It suppressed debate over the irregularities in the election.
Any mention of it will henceforth be defamed by the media as a “call to revolt.” The “moral pressure” that the establishment is now exerting on GOP senators packs a punch. Many, most notably Mike Pence, have already turned their backs on Trump. At the same time, the group of “Trumpists” will radicalize and turn into a fundamental opposition to the Biden presidency, similar to the “birther movement” against Obama.
In this tension between spirals of radicalization and distancing, the GOP could even fracture. Biden, meanwhile, with his power over the Senate, has the perfect starting position to “restore order,” that is, to expand his power. That Trump has also been blocked on Facebook and Twitter and, assuming he maintains his “stop-the-steal” line, will soon be deleted, is compounded. Massive repression and prosecutions against him, his family and his supporters, while the party establishment abandons them, are also in the offing.
If one looks at the events through an accelerationist lens (i.e., if one hopes for secession, believes that U.S. democracy is doomed for demographic reasons and sees the GOP as a retarding element), the storming of the Capitol may have been a good day.
But whether one shares this strategic view or not, the chaos was a tactical fiasco that played into the hands of the enemy in the medium term. It was not part of a plan, but the result of a total lack of plan and leadership. Neither was there a well thought-out meta-political goal, nor were there concrete revolutionary plans to occupy official buildings.
Posing, colorfully dressed “Dionysian individuals” taking souvenirs and putting their feet up on Nancy Pelosy’s office table show what it was really about: it was an act of political masturbation and emotional libido.
Years of humiliation and censorship, of government-accepted rule-breaking from the left, from looting to occupying a neighborhood, had pent up a righteous anger. The dubious election had only made the barrel overflow. A scene of protesters demolishing a bunch of cameras while chanting “You’re not lying to us anymore!” shows how fed up people are with the media “truth systems” and how much they long to break out of the matrix.
Facebook and Twitter have physical infrastructure, its quite obvious that the next gay Op will involve their HQs and servers.
The situation is absolutely insane.
Nice post especially, “we cannot force them to tell the truth, but we can force them to lie absurdly and visibly”.
It is bewildering to see an adult so brazenly lie but it is bewildering to be bewildered about liars lying.
The past few days have clearly indicated the powers that be are dragging us all to the bottom with cement blocks tied to our bodies.
At least there is an upside. My comments on regular media pointing out White People being under attack and slated for annihilation are getting amazing up vote numbers. Perhaps this is finally waking them up to reality.
Your second comment here, about the ‘upside’, is the most optimistic here. Yes, we do have to point out what is happening to our race, worldwide, and make our people aware of our true plight. But it still has to be unobtrusive and non-threatening until we can take the true pulse of this new administration.
Is anyone noticing the map of the covid-19 demographics? Nearly always explosive in Europe and North America — white centers of population. Africa is nearly vacant, except South Africa — which has a large minority of Whites. Just saying.
Remember a couple years back when Orca Oprah proclaimed “older whites will just have to die before we’ll see an end to racism.”? Was she tipping her hand?
Now, in any case, even the last dreamers should have woken up and realized that what is the people is not defined by the people, but by their political-media rulers. And what is allowed depends on conforming to the ideology of the system.
It is just not the same when armed “Black Panther” representatives storm into the California State Capitol as they did on May 2, 1967. After all, “legitimate” interests were at stake then. In 2011, far-left “protesters” stormed into the Wisconsin State Capitol. Not a word about it these days. No one called it a “terrorist attack”. In 2017, the “Women’s March” tweeted the following, “We took over the Capitol!” No one referred to it as a “desecration.” It’s all just a question of power.
I do not believe that the rally in Washington was a ‘half-ass coup’, nor that it was a ‘coup, at all, nor do I think the rally ‘backfired’.
Untold number of concerned citizens traveled across the country to make a very public message and it was effectively given.
The reprisals in the aftermath were long ago contemplated, if not planned, and if they had not been loosed on this occasion, they would have invented one in the coming months.
As to your notion that the nation cannot be saved, I agree, or, at least, not in it’s current form. The complexity arises in that many, both Right & Left/Corporate-Globalist and Nationalist, do not wish that to occur. That is where the conflict arises.
Most seem to want the current America to stay together, and, in so doing, that they could control it.
That cannot be.
When at least one of these parties gives up on the current America, it will be then that we can get on to the new America – in some places more like Ye Olde America, in other places like an America never before seen.
I, too, am like you – a fighter by temperment and not even remotely affected by social ostracism.
As to ‘dark blizzards’, I would say this : as a Southerner, who spent a long period in economic exile in New England, I learned to love blizzards, if only because that is when the psychotic hum of Humanity comes to a close, or, at least, a temporary one.
And from that brief respite lays the opportunity to become born again.
Darkness is the mother of light, and when we have had too much light, it is time to let the darkness come in.
The darkness cannot be controlled like the light, something the controllers of light have apparently not taken into consideration.
Thank you for the article.
I am very optimistic we have entered a time of renewal, and that, in spite of the pain, will be a very good thing.
Well said. There is nothing like the big storms, the only real holidays we have. And holy days as well for those of who can worship nature this way.
Capitol Storm was only bad if we believe their narratives. Why should we?
Thank you, Jaego!
Yes, the media edia narrative is patently absurd – it, as per usual, focusing on fetishist points to pervert the observer, instead of the real substance at hand.
This clearly wasn’t a coup or attempted one. Not even close. It was barely a riot.
I agree, Thomas.
That said, I do not waste my mental breath refuting Mainstream Media lies in my mind. I just accept that they are there, will continue to be there, and will remain meaningless for me.
The problem lies in the fact that for many they are very influenced by these lies, even today, after decades of tens, perhaps, hundreds of thousands of such lies having been told to them.
When even Mama Merkel sees Trump’s censorship as “problematic,” something is broken in America. https://thehill.com/policy/international/europe/533609-merkel-finds-twitters-block-on-trump-problematic
She is just saying that the state’s boot should be the one coming down, not a private company’s. Her commie roots are showing.
Whatever we do, the “optics” will be bad, because our enemies control the optics. If we do nothing because we fear bad “optics”, we’re doing just what our enemies want us to do: Nothing.
The only thing worse than the Capitol “siege”, would have been for all the participants to have done the smart, reasonable thing and stay at home.
The siege and the preceding fraudulent election sprung from the same well – a desire to fix America using the old forms (elections, along with the use of free speech, and freedom of assembly).
Well, it is now blindingly obvious that those forms no longer work for us. Finally, we can get to the next stages: secession, and when that is temporarily blocked, war. We no longer have to spend our time convincing people who are still foolishly invested in the old forms, because few of that group are left.
Wow: The moderate (but smart!) Martin Sellner is ranked among the “twenty most dangerous extremists” in the world by a so-called “Counter Extremism Project.” https://www.counterextremism.com/content/top-20-extremists
(This is even more absurd than Pelosi’s alleged “fear” that Trump could start a nuclear war!)
Who might be behind this “project”? Well, you can guess…
A Marxist of all wrote about today’s tyranny in one of his books.
Soon we’ll be denied to consume patriotic literature.
(Because it, too, could lead to sedition and upheaval.)
does someone imagine the right could ever get fair treatment in the press, or that an event would be created absent one spontaneously happening?
what again was the point of writing this?
“Bad optics” is always defined by our enemies and feint-hearted, bloviating “allies.” Bad tactics, as used by the “summer soldiers” of the Dissident Blight, is a cover for moral failure.
The difference between the Charlottsville failure and the storming of the Capitol success, was at the Capitol they had some plan and they fought.
I’m non-USA also and the “optics” of the people actually entering your “parliment” was great, along with the rabbit-like fear it inflicted on your politicians, and the massive overreach in banning by internet tech companies, which will actually harm them in the long run.
There will be blowback against white people from this success, but that was always going to happen just slower. In the future the storming of the Capitol may become known as day one of Civil War 2, the day they relearned how to fight.
There was no ‘plan’ to enter the Capital. If so, Ashli Babbitt would not have been killed. Charlottesville was a well-planned event. The planning, however, didn’t include allowing the ‘counterprotesters’ to attack the people at the rally with the assistance of the police.
One difference between Charlottesville and the Storming of the Capitol is sheer numbers. As they say, quantity has a quality all its own. The while the police could unleash Antifa on a hundred or so protesters, they could not do that with a couple thousand.
This is what I get about the greater American white patriotic population.
You don’t know how to get dirty. You are not quick of thought and of action, on the spot and in the moment. You don’t know how to act out a revolution. I got in bar fights with Americans, and usually it’s grandstanding, flexing muscles and then taking a beating. Rare are the Americans that had any actual fighting experience. When it comes to fighting, the typical white average American is clueless.
The people at the protest had no clue of the value of mayhem, of blitzing, of occupying with intent, of seizing the moment. I get a sense that the people in this protest were expecting a reff to call the beginning, that there would be a jumbotron giving guidance and hotdog stands in case one get hungry.
I know that deep state America organizes color revolution across the world with sporadic success, but I’m not talking about that. I’m not talking about the whole of America even, just the typical MAGA people. When compared to leftists and blacks this was a bit wimpy. Where are all the guns and what’s the point of having them?
Sure Trump was a letdown, didn’t ever organize on a grass roots level and you can say a million negative things about him in that respect, but I’m just thinking about people there who didn’t even seem to have that hop in their step, that unpredictable spark, that raw energy… it all just seemed like a line in Walmart on black Friday.
Painful (and funny the way you say it) – but true.
I really am not sure if I’m expressing it to the fullest of my impression of it. If you put the average Turk, Eastern European, Italian, Greek, North African or South American in that situation – I feel like instinctively he would know what to do; whereas the average American placed in a similar situation in their countries would be nothing but a liability.
I think the difference comes from lived and perceived experience. Devon Stack talked about it when commenting on Kenosha. Americans are the furthest along in this, it’s not even secondary experiences where you witness someone telling you their experience. No. Americans don’t even get to have those. Americans increasingly have TV and movies on which they base their worldviews. As one well fed leftist youtuber commenting on Kenosha said something along the lines of “I’ve seen enough Marvel movies to know that when a crowd reacts as such….”. That is reflected in the demeanor of the protesters that I saw, even with the horned guy, and the people in offices. Just clueless, without intent, slowly waddling around, goofing off, forced laughing. It’s grandstanding, nothing of substance. I can excuse the no goal part (not really but this isn’t the worst thing) but not even an idea, not even an ideal – which is awfully strange for a political gathering.
They just had the gear, the fancy flags the hats, but that is just merch and it seemed like clumsy cosplay. Not one revolutionary, not one punch thrown, not one statement. Fuck, you literally had THE FLOOR. What did you do, fucking pose and cosplay.
Now imagine it for a second the other way around and if a AOC type was there. That would have been either a declaration of secession, of war, of independence, it would have been something monumental in such a monumental occasion.
I’m off on a tangent, but does the right have that kind of fire? Nope, not just amongst the prominent figures but turn out not even amongst the “deplorables”. At best it’s a bunch of would be followers that had no leader but I’m not that optimistic.
Tough but true. I’m glad they didn’t try and hold it or anything. And they certainly weren’t prepared to – or for anything else. But yeah, no one Statement. No speeches. No seriousness at all. Yet we must make them over as heroes. Let’s not let their failure be our failure too.
When Rancher Activists took over a nature sanctuary in Oregon, there was a lot of weirdness even though they were trying to be serious. But of course, they were amateurs. Guys who went in to help got out as fast as possible since no one seemed to be in charge and people were talking to themselves, etc. The one articulate guy was killed by the Feds some time afterwards. Somehow the Feds didn’t come off too well, and most got off easy in the courts.
Please….I do like and agree with much of what you say but you are also pretty clueless as to how things run in the USA.
This was an FBI show at the Capitol — this is what they do. They have basically an unlimited budget to spend on implementing the NWO Globalist Agenda in the USA thru various False Flags and “Events”. To bring you up to speed a bit (please do some research?) the FBI was given explicit info that “Terrorists” were planning 911 and “ignored” it, the result being the “War On Terror” and the end of Civil Rights in the USA basically — Mueller was installed as head of the FBI and shut up all whistleblowers — some were murdered.
Oklahoma City Bombing? The Building blew OUT not in — meaning the actual bombs were inside that did the massive damage/killing — not the fertilizer nothing of McVeigh’s stupid “show” van. The top General of the Air Force in charge of Demolitons/Bombs actually documented this and wrote it up in great detail, a REAL PATRIOT — no doubt about it — you can still find it online if you search a bit– the Mainslime Media NEVER covered it of course. The “Event” was used to end the Militia Movement that was ongoing and gaining speed then — if they had to kill children in Day Care in the building to do it — aok with them.
ALL THE “LAW ENFORCEMENT” FEDS in that Building were GONE when the Explosion went off, what’s the chance of that? — I believe there was ATF etc. there — all of them out, Day Care kids in. This is who we are dealing with here. Are you getting the picture it is not quite as simplistic as you make it — although there is truth in what you say….
Do you know what Cointelpro is? The FBI infiltrates and then they use these people — Agent Provocateurs — to get the others they target to commit crimes so they can vilify the “movement”, these day “white” movements generally — and arrest people. It used to be used against the Far Left now it is used against ordinary citizens who oppose the NWO Agenda.
Do some research I can’t put a bunch of links in here — but I will put this one in below — this is who did the Capitol — this guy, BLM/Antifa superstar, was right next to the Lady who was gunned down “filming” it — he then went on Local TV and ran his mouth which is the only reason he was arrested (the other Agent Provocateurs there weren’t that stupid and NONE of them will be arrested although more than 20 were reported using axes to break windows etc.).
So although I agree with much of what you say — you are missing that there is a constant “Operation Gladio” at work in the USA all the time and it is aimed squarely at any citizens who get in the Globalist NWO Agenda’s way — do so and expect to be set up and destroyed: https://national-justice.com/black-lives-matter-organizer-seen-entering-capitol-building-crowd-likely-fbi-agent-provocateur
I don’t think there was an intent to capture the Capitol at all. Unlike Antifa/BLM, they did not show up with a premeditated intent to cause destruction. They were there simply to show support, wave flags, and chant some slogans. When the doors opened up I think it caught a lot of them somewhat off-guard, like the proverbial dog that catches the car. They didn’t really know what to do with it, so the silly poses and pictures, etc. It really did have the vibe of a fraternity prank in the Dean’s office.
It’s because White’s without Traditional Catholicism are hopeless.
Look up Japeth + the prophecy Noah gave about the soon to be Europeans.
“The tents of Japeth shall be enlarged.”
I once fought a guy my age who was bigger than me.
Apparently,everyone at his former High School were afraid of him.
(Both of us Americans + 19 yrs old during this altercation.)
After being shoved from behind multiple times,I turned around,took off my shirt
(Shirts can be grabbed and used to choke you with your own shirt) let him hit me 3 times,then plowed into him,and beat the $**t out of him.
It helped that i was having one of the worst nights of my life.
(So bad it would affect me for 4 yrs)
Yes,you’re right,White Americans are too civilized and institutionalized.
We need traditional Catholicism,not the Anti-Pope Francis Novus Ordo
We’ve spent the last two+ years being told how Nick Fuentes was the one person to learn from Charlottesville and that he was our Moses.
Well, it turns out that he went ahead and repeated the C’Ville playbook all over again, but with CivNat Boomers. He belongs in the same category of retard as Spencer and Wallace.
LMAO, what does Nick Fuentes have to do with civ-nat boomers??
Buffalo costumes may have sufficed in the Stone Age, but nowadays a successful coup requires tanks.
Yes, Trump was banned from Twitter and there’s been consequences for Twitter. How long this will hold, I don’t know, but here it is:
TWITTER STOCK PLUNGES AFTER BANNING PRESDIDENT TRUMP.
Twitter’s stock price tumbled Monday as investors appeared to balk at the social network’s decision to ban President Trump from posting.
Shares in the San Francisco-based company tumbled as much as 12 percent to $45.17 in the first trading session after it booted Trump from the platform on Friday, saying his account posed a “risk of further incitement of violence” after his supporters stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday.
I don’t consider 12% much of a calamity but then I don’t know understand these matters.
Yeah we were headed into a time of great prosperity, with rainbows, sunshine and free blowjobs for all courtesy of Kamala herself right up until those pesky r̶i̶o̶t̶e̶r̶s̶ revolutionaries attempting a coup ruined it for us. It’s not as though the entire establishment was already planning on taking brutal revenge against Trump supporters the second he left office. They didn’t openly talk about doing exactly that for the last four years, no, they genuinely wanted to heal the nation.
Thank goodness someone is thinking of the of the normies, you know the same people who overwhelmingly supported burn loot murder after the police tortured and killed Saint Floyd because of the color of his skin. I thought I was alone in being concerned about what manufactured opinion the media was going to plant in their empty skulls after this. The media is so objective and would’ve totally remained neutral but, because of this, they just 𝘩𝘢𝘥 to shill for cracking down on Trump supporters for this attempted coup.
Remember to take an occasional break from hand wringing lest you get carpal tunnel, though with frigid takes like this frostbite might be a bigger concern.
Trump has unmasked the communist Dems and RINOs, MSM, and Big Tech.
TPTB push people until some of them snap and then point and sputter. And if no-one snaps, they manufacture people snapping, like Charlottesville.
The idea that it is even possible to keep everyone 100% optical and/or that it would stop TPTB from doing what they are going to do anyway, is ludicrous. Goad should know better than this..
Mr. Goad appears to be content with being right above all else.
Says the guy attempting to prove he was right all along. Saving your best zingers for last, are you?
The people who’ve been screaming about optics and policing others about optics for the past four years are the main perps behind this unprecedented optical disaster. Beyond pointing out that massive irony, I made it very clear that I don’t care about optics.
Who are the main perps?
To my knowledge, the ones who pushed this rally the hardest were Alex Jones, Ali Alexander, Nick Fuentes, and Baked Alaska. All four of them have campaigned aggressively against white identitarianism. Not sure how Alex Jones feels about religion, but the other three have insisted on using Jesus Christ as a safer, normie-friendly surrogate for white identity. Fuentes and Baked Alaska were also eager participants at Charlottesville but seem to hate being reminded of it.
Nick Fuentes has campaigned hard against white identitarianism? He is openly against race-mixing and he claims he’s carrying the white race on his back. And to say that he encouraged anyone to do anything stupid is something I haven’t seen-quite the opposite.
His religious fundamentalism is counterproductive to say the least and he is delusional about Trump being the savior but I don’t think he is responsible for the storming of the Capitol.
I don’t know anything about the others you listed except that Alex Jones is some kind of normie-cuck/nut-job who is trying to go a bit more legit?? Not for sure though.
I listen to Nick Fuentes everyday while I’m at work and I read your columns every week. I bought some of your books as well. As far as I’m concerned, you and Fuentes need to just hug and become bff’s :).
Seriously though, I think you two have important strengthsthat compliment each-other. For one thing, you have a lot of wisdom and life-experiences that he doesn’t..
Nick makes a point of his Mestizo heritage. I’ve never seen him do anything but attack someone whose focus is on white identity—he bashes “wignats” more than he attacks anyone else. I’ve never seen him claim to be white, but I’ve seen him deny being white. When asked about this, his Jonestown-level followers, most of whom seem to be extremely online virgins with zero sense of history, insist he was being “ironic.”
He also talks about being Catholic constantly. I could be wrong, but I’ve never once heard him complain about all the Mexican Catholics pouring in from the Southern border. I’ve never heard him try to explain how a majority nonwhite religion that originated in the Middle East will save the white race. And his whole take about how the modern Catholic Church—a nest of pedophiles and globalists—isn’t the “real” Catholic Church is about as convincing as those who insist that “real” communism has never been tried.
He’s an acolyte of senile race-denier E. Michael Jones, who insists the only three ethnic groups in America are Catholics, Protestants, and Jews. EMJ also says that without Catholicism, Europe would be as backwards as Africa.
And then he’ll bash atheists, Protestants, and pagans.
And anyone over 25.
And anyone south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
And all women.
After a couple of years of observing him and his followers in action, my conclusion is he’s been an extremely divisive figure who has encouraged endless infighting. And whenever a “Nazi” goes down on federal charges, his legions cheer along with him.
I didn’t say he was “responsible” for the event. But he did promote it and attend it. And after he got home, he described the whole shebang as “glorious” despite the fact that it left more dead bodies than Charlottesville did. And the woman who died was not an Antifa sympathizer; she was a Trump supporter. How is that not massively worse than Charlottesville?
Again, I hope I’m wrong about this, but my guts tell me the blowback to this Capitol siege will be far worse than anything that happened after Charlottesville.
I don’t think he should be blamed for what happened. Then again, I don’t think anyone except the cops, the media, and Antifa should be blamed for Charlottesville—which places me at odds with the optics crowd. As a felon, I think I have better instincts than most do regarding when someone gets scared and starts pointing fingers at their accomplices to save their own neck.
The left doesn’t care about optics or truth, but it hasn’t hurt them at all.
To TPTB, we are all wignats now. And if things continue along their current trajectory, in six months, there will be no such thing as a normie.
The FBI ran the Capitol “show” as usual thru its Agent Provocateurs — these guys mentioned may well be aligned with that Agenda also — who knows?
With Cointelpro the people running the targeted groups often ended up being those the FBI infiltrated in, LOL?….– Same, Same here? There is zero doubt this guy was cut loose because he works for them — as has been pointed out before the FBI is Antifa — the FBI is a KGB for the NWO Globalist Agenda. I can’t figure out which side Trump actually is on though — given his insanely bad appointments of people like Wray etc. and associating himself with the Capitol “Event” that anyone with a brain knew would end up about how it did… —
However, there is zero doubt that there was as False Flag element to the Capitol “Event” and some unsuspecting fools got sucked in — including a guy from Atlanta who was arrested there on the 6th and who just shot himself in the chest today as a result – – guess he won’t be going to trial/jail for his protesting. Tell me how many Burn, Murder, Loot “protesters” did the FBI arrest for burning down Cities for a year? Here’s this shows you who “did” the Capitol: https://national-justice.com/black-lives-matter-organizer-seen-entering-capitol-building-crowd-likely-fbi-agent-provocateur
Jim, I already stated that he says things that are counter-productive..
As far as him being a white identitarian-
He talks about being Italian all the time.
Claims he’s saving the white race
Is openly against race-mixing
Accepts the fact that races are genetically different.
Has talked endlessly about the 3rd world invasion.
Tells the truth about the rootless international parasitical tribe and their hoaxes.
It is what it is.
Fuentes’ goose is every bit as cooked as Richard Spencer’s was. Let’s not forget that it took six+ months, a broken box, and the doxing of Ricky Vaughn to complete his irrelevance.
I took his side in the AmNat/WigNat split, but his worship of the ZOG Emperor was more than I could take.
Yea, the Trump worship reached the level of bizarre. I think he’ll face reality about him at some point though..
One silver lining. Biden was installed by the war machine. Now everyone abroad will know that the war machine is not necessarily whote folk doing the wars.
I recall an interesting and insightful quote I once read: “America is like a corpse. And the Republicans are trying to revive the corpse while the Democrats are cheering on the maggots.”
I’m willing to bet that a great amount of the 71% to 92% of people polled who disapproved of what happened on Wednesday thought it was antifa that did it.
In what retarded fantasy was what happened on Wednesday a “coup attempt”?
Or perhaps we might recall Carlyle’s description of the Ancienne regime: ‘It is singular how long the rotten will hold, if you do not handle it roughly.’
It got handed roughly at the capitol, all right, and Trump almost said ‘why urge ye your petitions in the street: come to the Capitol.’ Well, it is sad but I have to admit I thought it was pretty funny; seeing our Congressfolk cower and hide; hardly brave solons defying the mob. I kept thinking of Monty Python and the Holy Grail: ‘run away! Run away!’
And, my God, look at the crowd. Thousands and thousands. It recalls a trump rally I saw in St. Louis in 2016: endless crowds wrapped around several blocks. Here, it was more flashmob than mob, and the aimlessness seemed more exuberant than revolutionary. We don’t want manifestoes, we want selfies.
As for the crackdown, well, it’s coming either way. We know it. I’m reminded of 1820, when German radicals, frustrated with being ignored by the ruling class, killed the playwright Kotzebue for being a police agent, leading to the Karlsbad decrees, stifling freedom of expression in Germany and strengthening the police state, but that was already coming. Or Bloody Sunday in 1905, where the reformist crowd led by Father Gapon were gunned down by Czarist troops.
another crackdown, but by a system that was doomed.
There’s a sense that something got broke in the last four years, and we can’t put it back together, and many of us, on both sides, don’t want it put back together. I thought it was at least indicative of whites that, for once, they went to the center of power and demanded…what? Well, something. Much preferable to the black’s looting shops and cities in the name of justice. But of course, that is accepted, where here, the crowd went after the ruling class; as in a sci-fi novel, they have defied the evil emperor, and that must be punished, although when you look at our leaders there, from Pelosi to McConnell, are a lot of aged, cowardly grifters and timeservers, you realize how rotten they are, to bring us back to Carlyle.
Also note how how if there was a hope to protest the vote, it was useless, and the vote was delayed to 4 am in the morning…another late night power move done without anyone knowing or opposing it.
As for Ashli Babbit; I’m a security guard, was in the military, and if someone is trying to invade or intrude, you always have to call out a warning, a ‘stop or I’ll shoot.’ How cowardly her murderer was, as the video made it look like he was waiting in ambush. another damned Ruby Ridge, and let’s see if he gets charged…and of course, we hear nothing but praise for our ‘brave,Capitol police,’ and a lot of cop lovers in the MAGA crowd may now regret those blue striped flags they fly when the law hauls them off.
I want to agree/disagree with Jim, but I can’t. He told things as they are, and I see no unity between them and us anymore. I want nothing to do with the system that rules in the Capitol, and I wish we could just have an amiable divorce and get on with our respective lives.
Nice quote. Carlyle’s French Revolution is loaded with such gems but rarely read these days.
“and the vote was delayed to 4 am in the morning…another late night power move done without anyone knowing or opposing it.” Mama always liked to say; “yeeewww gotta git up P R E T T Y early in the mornin’…. ‘lest ya get up late.”
Yawn. Moral outrage, he stupid she stupid, let’s nation, let’s separate, my people, our people, sheeple, those people, podcasts, books, social media, history, revisionist history, with or without (((eeek))) hitler. I break it off by having lots of white children with a strong white womanly (who I cherish). I home school them. I white flight and never apologize. I work out my body and my mind. Self discipline and rejection of the media and political and economic systems that enslave my neighbors. Every word is a trap. Every trap lethal. I sit and wait. My time will come.
The greatest threat for white nationalists is that the ruling class will offer redemption to right wingers. The elites may be too arrogant to understand this.
My sentiments exactly! Many thanks for your realistic and honest analysis. The image of those vacuous, privileged Trumps sucking in the boobs is just nauseating. Trump has no ideology beyond the mirror. From any angle, this was a catastrophic idiocy and gives the establishment just the rationale it needs to squash all and any dissent. It is hard to credit some of the delusional nonsense that has been published on CC so far. With idiots like these who needs Antifa? Again, thanks and well done.
Interesting to see this viewpoint expressed here, on this site, given that Greg Johnson has for years stressed in his own writing that i) Truth matters ii) Morality matters in the struggle for white identity.
“The democratization of our culture is nearing full completion.”
It is the minocratization of our culture that is nearing full completion.
“Democracy” is the dictatorship of the numerical majority. “Minocracy” is the dictatorship of a multitude of agitated, self-selected aggrieved minorities. Minocracy is the government we have been and are getting now.
The United States was a true democracy from 1787 to 1861. A Minocracy thereafter.
We owe our allegiance to the original American Democracy, and no allegiance to anything after 1861.
Keep polishing that turd called “democracy” until you run out of polish and are left with nothing but that not-too-shiny turd to show for your effort.
I agree that we owe no allegiance to anything after the War Between the States. People do not understand this and get lost in the slavery issue. Regardless of slavery, the country was lost when the Union won the war. The Federal Government came out supreme and displayed that those who try to leave will be killed. I would go one step further and say that we were screwed with the Constitution from the get-go. The Anti-Federalists were correct to oppose it and knew well that we’d end up slaves to a central power.
I misfiled this comment – the quote I cited was from Colin Cleary’s adjacent article The Fear of Radicalization.
To be clutching pearls before a little outburst like this? Not very cool.
Anyway I think downplaying what happened is good. It wasn’t a coup, it wasn’t a revolution, it wasn’t anything really – a little dust-up, a little impulse, whether or not it was a “false flag” or an “inside job” doesn’t matter. It wasn’t anything special. It was barely 1% of what BLM did all summer of 2020, but at least it showed them that “we can do it too.” Action, reaction, counter-reaction and the like, whatever it is, it keeps the ball rolling, it makes things happen. Pelosi said the protesters chose whiteness over democracy. This is beautiful optics. It says that to be white is to oppose this incoming administration, and that’s the truth. Time we say “yes” to action. We’ve already lost everything else.
I’m not clutching at pearls. Merely pointing out that those who’ve clutched at pearls nonstop since 2017 about Charlottesville were behind this much more massive fuckup.
WTF dude. This was Trump’s rally. It would have happened the exact same way wether the people in question were there or not.
There is lots of video footage of the cops Inviting people into the Capitol.
I don’t think he should be blamed for what happened.
I’m not clutching at pearls. Merely pointing out that those who’ve clutched at pearls nonstop since 2017 about Charlottesville were behind this much more massive fuckup.
The bannings were coming no matter what. Every Democrat running for President pledged to literally enact South Africa legislation and end the First Amendment.
The blatant “hypocrisy” of the media regarding this most peaceful protest of the past year is not a lack of self-awareness, but a calculated flex and demoralization tactic, but that was all coming anyways too. We’ve had a year of it, and it is never going to end.
What is not intended by the rulers is that this may be the final push that makes normal Americans, IE: right-wingers, realize that their “liberal” neighbors are not well-intentioned fools, but actually evil liars who have no conscience or shame.
“The bannings were coming no matter what.”
I’ve heard this sentiment a lot.
Reminds me of “You’re going to die one day, so might as well kill yourself now.”
