#FeministFail

Did you hear the latest outrage?

Some guys just landed a frickin’ spacecraft on a frickin’ comet!

No, that is not what the feminists are outraged about. A lead scientist wore a bowling shirt with sexy cartoons on it. He of course tearfully apologizes, rather than saying Hey, I just landed a frickin’ spacecraft on a frickin’ comet! Go pound sand! If you want attention, then go earn it like I did!

So, rather than this accomplishment (and notable advancement in science) being celebrated as scientific progress, this guy is being torn to shreds in the femo-o-sphere by SJWs for holding back progress. You cannot make this stuff up.

I think what is holding back progress is that feminists are more interested in fashion than in scientific achievement. Isn’t the stereotype of fashion-obsessed-women something they are supposed to be fighting against? #FeministFail

Dodging Leftward

Apparently, BrightAbyss disagreed with my assessment of him as a Leftist using Marxist tactics, as expounded in my previous post: Christians and Boiling Pitch.

He feigns ideological neutrality on Twitter: 

1h1 hour ago

– ya, the problem is I’m neither “leftist” nor Marxist so your ideological frames just don’t fit. Sorry.
This is typical of Leftists. They are persons without virtue, they have a dual set of morality. They shamelessly lie to those in the out-group. I decided to take a moment to peruse BrightAbyss’s Twitter timeline to see if his interests really were not Leftist or Marxist. Guess what I found? Wait for it… a boatload of Leftism and Marxism. 
Why does he lie? Because he must. As I stated in the previous post, it is the business of Leftists to spread lies and discontent. BrightAbyss, you do know that I can read your Twitter feed, right? Why play this game? I had you pegged from that single tweet of yours that I referenced.
I have documented BrightAbyss’s tweets below. But my absolute favorite is his retweet of the article Piketty, Marx, and the Political Economy of the Internet, which states (emphasis mine):
all three reactions do not help the task of creating a New Left that is urgently needed in the situation of sustained capitalist crisis. Marxists will certainly view Piketty’s analysis of capitalism and political suggestions critically. I argue that they should however not dismiss them, but like Marx and Engels aim to radicalise reform suggestions.
Wow. Interested in creating a New Left to take on that whole capitalist crisis, are we? The Marxists are having some internal discussions on the topic? But you’re not a Marxist are you, BrightAbyss? Are you sure we shouldn’t take another look at those ideological frames of mine?
Here’s what I found on the rest of his Twitter feed. It seems that BrightAbyss is extremely concerned about Climate Change and Ecological Disaster. He thinks that all aspects of our lives should be re-oriented to address climate change. He implores President Obama to DO SOMETHING. He Tweets about oppressed minorities being crushed under the Capitalist boot. He retweets on behalf of the journal of Decolonization, which is anti-colonialist. He retweets against the evil Koch brothers. He calls for riot and a Revolution Now at some Occupy Wall Street rehash. He calls to gang rush the Capitalist Devils. He defines nationalism as pathology. He mocks others for calling out him and his causes as Marxist agitation – insisting that Communism and the Cold War are dead. (nice deflection) He tweets about how disgraceful it is to be wealthy and honored in an unjust society. Oh, wait. That sounds awfully like social justice to me. He tweets that real men support gender equality. He defines Whiteness as entitlement. He accuses others of ideological projection, while pretending that he has none. He’s openly anti-Christian, but I didn’t bother documenting that.
So we have: radical climate change support, anti-capitalism, class warfare, anti-colonialism, anti-nationalism, social justice, gender equality and anti-racism. Really, BrightAbyss? My ideological frames just don’t fit? Ha! They fit you like a glove.
Let’s look at Eric S. Raymond’s list of Leftist memes infecting the West and propagated by Marxists, enumerated in his Suicidalism post:

Consider the following propositions:

  • There is no truth, only competing agendas.
  • All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and
    colonialism.
  • There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor.
  • The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable.
  • Crime is the fault of society, not the individual criminal. Poor criminals are entitled to what they take. Submitting to criminal predation is more virtuous than resisting it.
  • The poor are victims. Criminals are victims. And only victims are virtuous. Therefore only the poor and criminals are virtuous. (Rich people can borrow some virtue by identifying with poor people and criminals.)
  • For a virtuous person, violence and war are never justified. It is always better to be a victim than to fight, or even to defend oneself. But “oppressed” people are allowed to use violence anyway; they are merely reflecting the evil of their oppressors.
  • When confronted with terror, the only moral course for a Westerner is to apologize for past sins, understand the terrorist’s point of view, and make concessions.

Having read Raymond’s list, read through BrightAbyss’ tweets that I have selected below. I think the tweets speak for themselves.

BrightAbyss, you are a Leftist and a Marxist agitator and a liar.

Boiling pitch for you.

Note: Overview of Decolonization Journal

Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society is an undisciplinary, peer-reviewed, online Open Access journal committed to supporting and advancing decolonization scholarship, practice, and activism within and, more importantly, beyond and against, the academy. We believe in connecting decolonization struggles across locations and experiences, in connecting academics, activists, and artists – and their production – within larger communities of decolonial struggle, and connecting knowledge production to histories of resistance to colonial power; we believe in a lived out decolonial praxis. Decolonization is not new and we do not aspire to meet the academic demand for new and invigorating paradigms; it is not the academy we are interested in invigorating. Instead, we seek to ground decolonization in the lived experiences and histories of those individuals and communities that have and are living out decolonization, seeking to invigorate connections, struggles, and knowledges that reside beyond the academy.

Christians and Boiling Pitch

The other day I read a particularly disgusting piece of White Hate, which prompted me to write this rather Nietzschean response:

To which BrightAbyss responds:

Ah, so now I’m on top of the socioeconomic hate machine because of my Will to Power over those who would destroy me and my brothers. I smell anti-racism and social justice, two ugly babies of Cultural Marxism. Anyone who uses the word hate to denounce the other is a Leftist. Among Leftists, Hate is overloaded  to mean heresy, denoting any thoughts which a Leftist finds distasteful. My refusal to submit anti-racism may be the worst of the Leftist heresies. His use of the word socioeconomic is a reference to class, which is classic Marxism; as socioeconomic status is a primary division used in critical theory to divide oppressors and oppressed. The article that he defends even bemoans the dead end that critical race theory has encountered in South Africa. I’m sure that breaks BrightAbyss’s heart too.

You can read the thread, but the short of it is that BrightAbyss tries to pick up Christianity and use it as a moral club to beat me into submission to the Marxist ideology. Good luck with that.

This approach fails miserably because I am not terribly philosophical, ideological or moralistic. I’m thedish. My consistency is in loyalty, loyalty to my in-group and to my thede (still working on phyle). I come from a long line of Christians. I can trace my lineage back the the Revolutionary War (really more of a secession, but that’s for another time), and to a Christian doctor who was jailed, pilloried and had his ears cropped for criticizing the Anglican Church in England.

“In this sign, you will conquer”

You see, unlike most Christians in America, I understand that the current state of Christianity as BrightAbyss (mis)understands it, is a watered down, Leftist shadow of its former glory. The reason for this is that for hundreds of years now Enlightenment philosophers have reformulated Christianity in Enlightenment terms and imbued it with Enlightenment values.

To the side is a bronze of Emperor Constantine, who conquered under the sign of the cross. Christianity has been the light of the West, and Westerners have bathed the world in blood to bring Christian peace. You see, paradoxically, peace is achieved through violence. Peace does not occur in Nature, because Nature is a Hobbesian war of all against all. Peace is unnatural, it is manufactured. Peace can only be manufactured by men who have the Will to Power.

The West rose to power through the creation of Capitalism (an economic or social technology, in addition to other engineering technologies), a system which suppresses involuntary transfers of property, leaving no choice but to engage in the market. The Christian exhortation of men to behave peaceably, and to obey the authorities, has been extremely helpful in the creation of productive markets which lead to Western power. The Catholic church operated much as the House of Commons in modern systems, being the voice and advocate of the people to the Executive Branch function performed by the feudal lords, the Aristocracy. The story of the survival of Christianity through the Middle Ages, is the story of Aristocrats using violence, technology and economics to create and maintain walled gardens of civilization in a sea of barbarism.

You see, Christianity only functions in a civilized society. The rules of Christianity only apply within that walled garden, they do not exist in the sea of barbarism. This is why Christians built walls around their tiny pockets of civilization, to specifically exclude the barbarians. Christianity is a social technology, but social technologies do not work with all peoples and in all times and places. We must use the right tool for the job. To our fellows within the walled garden, we turn the other cheek. To the barbarians on the other side of the wall, we pour down boiling pitch. Get the idea?

Leftists are the barbarians, intent on tearing down the walls which keep our civilization safe. They are an infection, eating out our normative commons, dissolving norms of behavior, sowing discord and distrust in every corner. They subvert the Will to Power, spreading the lies listed in hacker hero Eric S. Raymond’s Suicidalism and Gramscian damage posts, leading to a listless and defenseless Christianity.

BrightAbyss is not in my thede. He admits in the thread that he’s not a Christian, yet he wants to throw Scripture in my face and to tell me what it truly means to be a Christian. The intellectual dishonesty and hypocrisy is astounding: Why would a non-Christian exhort me to behave in a Christian manner, to follow rules that he admits he does not believe? Well, the answer is obvious: it is a transparent manipulation. He wishes to bind me down with the chains of modern Enlightenment Christianity, which lock me onto the Progressive plantation. I’ve got your number, buddy:

We Christians have been fools. We have been too trusting. We have allowed snakes in our midst to spread lies and discontent. We have treated our enemies as though they are Christians, rather than as the barbarians and destroyers of Christian virtue that they truly are.

Christians have always been willing to fight, kill and die for their civilizations. I am no different. Leftists like BrightAbyss need to understand this: it is Christian forgiveness for those inside the wall, and boiling pitch for those outside of it. Many modern Christians have lost the Will to Power, but my eyes are open: Peace is forged through Power.

So, I don’t need BrightAbyss to tell me what Christianity means, but maybe he can help any Leftist readers with some of their other burning questions:

MAIDs and Potty-Mouthed Princesses

I was recently treated to a little Social Justice propaganda when I got a link to the Potty-Mouthed Princesses video. You can search for it yourself, I decline to link to it. This video was created by the same group that created the Ferguson children Hey White People video, a group of Social Justice rent-seekers. It features a group of adorable young girls cursing for feminism and Social Justice. Personally, I think that mothers who use their children in such a way a child-abusers, but I’ll not spend too much time ‘concern trolling’ as I wouldn’t spend two seconds worrying about such people or their children… the sins of the father and all that.

Both of those videos are full of distortions and lies. They are intentionally false psychological manipulations, aka mind control. But, no-one can attack them. Here is why.

Anglo-Europeans have evolved a moral duty to practice out-group altruism. As an aside, moral duties are simply expressions of reproductive strategies. This is a quirk of Anglo-European evolution. Most groups practice in-group altruism and out-group parasitism, but it appears that Anglo-Europeans (for whatever reason, but probably Church enforced prohibitions on in-breeding/cousin marriage) evolved a system of out-group altruism. So the quirk is that Anglo-Europeans practice both in-group altruism and out-group altruism.

All of these ‘victims’ claim out-group status and are using moral language to accuse Anglo-Europeans of practicing in-group altruism and out-group parasitism. The claim in the PMP video is that the in-group (men) are getting unfair advantage at the expense of the out-group (women), which is free-riding or parasitism or theft. This invokes a response called altruistic punishment. This response causes the individual to altruistically sacrifice himself to punish the free-rider. This response evolved as a reproductive strategy, and is extremely valuable for maintaining the commons (the marketplace) which allows high-velocity trade (mistrust reduces velocity of trade), which has been such an amazing competitive advantage to Anglo-Europeans over the last millennium. So, Anglo-European individuals will throw themselves in harm’s way to punish free-riders/parasites. This has been identified as MAIDs: Moral Auto-Immune Disorder.

This is the strategy of Leftists, to turn Anglo-Europeans against each other using our own evolved evolutionary response against free-riding/parasitism. Of course, it is all a farce. The free-riding is non-existent. This is why the Left uses pseudo-science such as false research and studies. The claims (gender pay gap, 1 in 5 women raped, etc.) in the PMP video are provably false, but the accusations do not have to be factual, they perform their function merely by evoking an intuitive altruistic punishment response in the Anglo-European. This is the essence of Marxist critical theory: the theory is that all groups can be divided into oppressed/oppressor, so the Marxist must find the dividing line and claim ‘oppression’ (free-riding on the out-group, out-group parasitism). Examples of ‘oppressed/oppressors’: women/men, blacks/whites, poor/rich, gay/straight, trans-gender/cis-gender, Jew/Christian, Muslim/Christian, Democrat/Republican, gun activists/gun owners, etc. The altruistic punishment response is the key psycho-biological feature that fuels (cultural) Marxism and critical (race) theory. Without it, those theories would be useless.

Any denial of the false victim’s victim-hood is perceived as an attack against the out-group (victim blaming) and only confirms the false accusations. Only submission (offering of help/money/resources to the ‘victim’) will end the altruistic punishment. This submission is the end-goal, and is the cause of the false attacks: resources/competitive advantage gained at little expense through psychological manipulation (mind control). This is a form of rent-seeking. This is the conundrum: we can’t attack these false attackers. What can we do? Not to be overly dramatic, but finding the answer to that question may be the key to the future of Western civilization.

#GamerGate: One Simple Test

I love #GamerGate. It is the first sign of life that I have seen that the total mind control of the Left can be broken. If you don’t know what #GamerGate is about, probably the fastest and most fun way to learn is to watch the videos from the Internet Aristocrat’s YouTube channel. The short story is that the Cathedral’s infiltration of gaming has been exposed, and the Left’s duplicity and mind control tactics have been laid bare for all who are following the action.

Let me take a moment to gush over the Aristocrat. This guy is a lion. His Tumblrisms video series is a humorous dissection of social justice insanity on Tumblr (headmates, thin privilege, white privilege, ableism, cultural appropriation), displaying a deep understanding of the Left. He is uniquely positioned to follow, understand, and critique the infiltration of games journalism by the Social Justice Warriors, and his #GamerGate videos are amazingly detailed diaries of the unfolding #GamerGate saga. He is a leading figure in this fight. His citizen journalism and keen intellect have earned my greatest respect.

Today I did a search on ‘GamerGate’ to see how the mainstream of journalism was responding, and if they were continuing to stonewall and paint any dissenters as misogynists. Sure enough, that is exactly what is still happening.

I, of course, was interested to take this simple test on the Mirror to see if #GamerGate is about corruption or misogyny. The article gives you a quick backgrounder to start, then takes you to the smoking gun, where #GamerGaters actually admit that they have a problem with Social Justice Warriors taking over their hobby (gasp!).  Of course the Cathedral brooks no dissent. You are next asked to click if you think that the controversy is really caused by #1. Misogyny, #2. Fighting Corruption, #3. Whiny man-babies, or #4. Who cares? Basically, 3 choices against #GamerGaters and 1 choice for #GGers.

Obviously, the author is flabbergasted that anyone would dare dissent against the decrees of the SJWs and just knows that everyone will choose #1. Misogyny, especially after his smoking gun that #GamerGaters thought that the SJW insanity was ‘safely contained’ on Tumblr.

Well, I made my choice and was treated to an immediate poll result. 83% for ‘Fighting Corruption’. My first response was LOLz. My second thought was that this is embarrassing for the author and the Cathedral, and will probably be removed ASAP, so I took a screen cap (below).

This article is as biased and leading as you could possibly want, but what is happening?… The readers know the truth. That is amazing. The SJWs are attacking from all sides; every mainstream source is trumpeting loudly that only a misogynist would support #GamerGate; the Cathedral is using every possible avenue to silence dissent and to control minds, using their giant megaphone to scream MISOGYNY!!

But it isn’t working. It simply isn’t working. Do we see a crack in the Cathedral’s mind control matrix?
