If you have been on social media in the past 24 hours no doubt you have seen at least one meme posted conflating Nelson Mandela and Morgan Freeman. These images are hilarious because they are such an effective troll of exactly the kind of empty, self-righteous, white liberal do-gooder that publicly praises the “courage” and “strength” of Mandela without actually knowing the first thing about the man or the history surrounding the fall of the White South African State. They call attention to the fact that for the average Western white liberal, Mandela is nothing more than an empty vessel for them to project their political and social fantasies onto. Most liberal whites probably have more of an emotional connection to the charismatic and grandfatherly figure of Freeman than they ever could to Mandela, which is what makes him so perfect for these images.
You don’t want to get caught in the middle of The Happening with a pair of twink-legs, do you? What will you do when the hoards of transqueermosexuals descend on your poor, unsuspecting rural neighborhood demanding all the equality and body-glitter your people have to offer, if you don’t have the upper-body strength to fend them off? Being an edgy cool-bro isn’t going to keep your cheeks tight when the youths come to culturally-enrich your ass. So, to prepare your body for what’s to come, here’s TRS’s top 3 tips on how to LIFT WEIGHTS LIKE A FUCKING FASCIST.
“Often in my lectures when I use the phrase ‘imperialist white-supremacist capitalist patriarchy’ to describe our nation’s political system, audiences laugh. No one has ever explained why accurately naming this system is funny. The laughter is itself a weapon of patriarchal terrorism. It functions as a disclaimer, discounting the significance of what is being named. It suggests that the words themselves are problematic and not the system they describe. I interpret this laughter as the audience’s way of showing discomfort with being asked to ally themselves with an antipatriarchal disobedient critique. This laughter reminds me that if I dare to challenge patriarchy openly, I risk not being taken seriously.” — bell hooks, Understanding Patriarchy
No one has ever explained why if this system is so oppressive it is so easy for people like bell hooks to say things like this without suffering any negative consequences. Not only is it easy, but she is rewarded for it with prestige, influence and power, and she is not the only one.
I recently watched Ken Burn’s documentary on Prohibition, and somewhere between the story of Carrie Nation and George Remus I realized something about the modern gun control debate: The pro-gun control side is acting on cultural sensibilities expressed as moralistic outrage. How you feel about guns is self-evidently related to the culture that you grew up in, with the typical Southerner or rural American seeing a gun as another everyday household object, while the city dwelling northerner seems to view them more as a dangerous weapon usually owned only by thugs and drug dealers. To a rural Southerner a shotgun leaned up against a corner is no more noteworthy than a blender sitting on a counter-top.
Today’s subject comes from totalfascism.
TL;DR: A brave youtuber produces an eight-minute video preaching against the evils of authoritarianism; Total Fascism’s Andrew Anglin responds with a brilliant circling of wagons.
Anglin’s response was a bit excessive, but the request for a Skype debate was nevertheless pure genius.
Fact is, a youtuber that produces trivial videos for the fedora demographic would be utterly trounced in a debate against a well-researched and dedicated ideologue like Anglin.
This gem comes from Princess Free Zone, an up-and-coming brand that promises “to offer an alternative for little girls.” Their page has over 10,000 likes as of this posting.
I think at this point we can safely assume that anything branded as “alternative” or “unique” in the West is guaranteed to involve bending language to accommodate psychological malady. See also: Upworthy, social justice, Cultural Marxism.
Today’s topic comes from Addictinginfo: “You Might Be A Fascist If…”
Mr. Foster indeed goes to exhausting lengths to find the Nazi hiding under every nook and cranny of the Republican “narrative.”
Those evil conservatives are impeding our open dialogue and democratic freedoms with ideas I don’t want to hear!
Today’s subject comes from The Dailymail.
Isn’t it beautiful, how liberals frame their nannying of the poor wittle Negro?
Massah Bullock sho’ nuff loves her trophy in White privilege. She gets to blend her real life with her “Blind Side” acting role, being a better role model to progressive women everywhere!
Being raised in the stable home of a single mother Hollywood household will definitely have a positive impact on this Negro child. Maybe Louis will grow up to become another Black Science Guy, or maybe a bounceball star! Heck, maybe someday he’ll knock up some skanky Disney girl. The sky is the limit, oh the places you will go…
…Now be a good boy and look ethnic while mommy poses for pictures with you; she has a movie coming out!
It seems that the most fashionable position one can take on the issue of race today is an outright denial of the entire concept. This talking point is currently all the rage with people that like to think of themselves as intellectual and politically savvy. It is particularly popular among liberal, college-educated, bourgeois whites. Forever seeking to one-up other whites on the political correctness scale, these run-of-the-mill edgytarians eagerly grab hold of the line that “race does not exist” and vainly attempt to validate themselves by regurgitating it ad nauseam whenever the topic of race is discussed.
Racism, as we all know, is a deadly sin against the Science God, but race denialism takes the postmodern religion of scientism one step further. The assumption is that the practice of categorizing humans by race is not only immoral, but that it necessarily leads to wrong or misleading conclusions in real life. In addition to the point that it is objectively false and scientifically invalid (therefore sinful) to make value judgments based on race, the race-deniers claim that all observations and statistical correlations based on race necessarily have zero utility. Some will argue that that there is no way even a flawed or imperfect generalization of race can provide value as a heuristic for navigating everyday life. All concepts of race must be discarded in the name of sacred science and equality.
The African continent accounts for less than 3% of the world’s GDP. Those countries that make the greatest contribution to this number are either Muslim, have a significant number of Whites, or in the case of Nigeria have oil or a similarly-valuable resource… That’s exploited by non-Africans.
