The Tortoise and the Hare

Posted November 23, 2016 By John C Wright

It is not yet advent, so I have room for one more political screed:

I have been waiting for decades for the Left to push the Right past the tipping point. Maybe the giant will wake again, and, this time, stay awake long enough to fend off the Left.

Perhaps with the election of Trump, the giant has stirred in its sleep.

We often liken the Left to rabbits, because, like rabbits, they are cowardly herd animals who thrive in the abundant seasons. In truth, they are the tortoise, and the Right is the sleeping rabbit. Step by slow and plodding step, for decades, the Left has made plans and carried them out. Anyone who uncovers those plans is denounced as an hysteric, a paranoiac, or a Nazi. But the school system, the news media, the popular entertainment, the law schools, the courts of law, were all taken over completely and thuroughly by a slow, steady, calculated plan which was a century in the making.

Now, as the fleet of foot, we on the Right can make up for lost time quite quickly: but we must make it up.

The election of Trump prevented the very last nail from going into the coffin, and the coffin from being thrown off the sea cliff into the sea, but we are still in a coffin.

Sixty Five for the Eighth Circle

Posted November 22, 2016 By John C Wright

I still have a few days before my Advent vow kicks in, and I will stop writing harangues and screed on the topic of politics.

So I am glad this came in before the threshold date. It is simply too delicious for words. This is a lovely time to be alive, and be conservative. Rejoice all ye who delight in the beauty of truth!

As you may recall, according to Dante, that foremost poet and otherworldly explorer, the Eighth Circle of Hell is reserved for the fraudulent.

Here in separate concentric trenches of endless pain suffer the shades of Panderers and Seducers, eternally scourged; Flatterers floundering in sewage; Simoniacs interred head-downward in baptismal fonts suffering a bastinado of fire; Diviners, Fortune-tellers and Pollsters (I made up that last part) heads facing backward and eyes ever weeping; Grafters and Barrators, submerged in boiling tar; Thieves by serpents tortured, burned, and of human form deprived; Counselors of Fraud tormented by tongues of flame; Schismatics and Scandalmongers lacerated, dismembered, and sliced in half; and finally are Counterfeiters, Alchemists and Falsifiers of Words, scabbed with poxes and scales, scratching and tearing their scabby flesh without cease.

I am not as wise as Minos, Rhadamanthus and Aeacus, so I do not know to which specific malboge of the Eighth Circle our current generation of  journalists are most justly doomed, if they repent not.

But now we know their names.

Tomorrow is the VINDICATION OF MAN

Posted November 21, 2016 By John C Wright

After many overlong years of waiting, Rania returns to Earth, with the verdict of the monstrous alien overlords of M3 decreeing whether mankind is to be an equal and free spacefaring race, or kept in indentured servitude, as serf race unworthy of the stars forever and aye.

And my long-awaited book describing these great and momentous events goes on sale!

Vindication of Man

Did you say you wanted a free sample of the first two chapters? That you wanted to know the events of history from the point of view of Rania, whom we have not seen since volume one? Want no longer! Two free sample chapters await below for your reading pleasure:

We Prefer Minorities

Posted November 19, 2016 By John C Wright

From http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/11/15/is-planned-parenthood-affiliate-fueling-anti-trump-protests.html

The Craigslist ads read: “STOP TRUMP – up to $1500/week. Hiring immediately! Call Today Start tomorrow! $15-$18 hourly rate + bonus + overtime up to 77 hours per week!”

They were placed by a Planned Parenthood affiliate in major cities like Boston, Denver, Columbus, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh right before the election to defeat the candidacy of Donald Trump. However, most of them are still active on Craigslist, fueling questions about whether the group is now among those feeding the post-election anti-Trump protests across the country.

Many of the ads have Planned Parenthood Action, a PAC, emblazoned across the top and all of them list phone numbers belonging to the Community Outreach Group, a for-profit organization formed by Planned Parenthood as “a vendor of large-scale advocacy.” Protesting is among the tasks listed on its website.

MoveOn.org and others already have been linked to the demonstrations. Protesters have been out on the streets since Wednesday and have been mostly peaceful. However, in some instances – like in the city of Portland – police used flash bombs last week to quell an angry mob that lit fires and smashed cars and store windows with bats. One protester was shot by a civilian.

Planned Parenthood and Community Outreach Group have not returned phone calls seeking comment. Planned Parenthood, which received $553.7 million in tax dollars last year, had pledged to spend $30 million to defeat Trump, according to Rolling Stone. The money allegedly came from its super PAC, which “jointly” worked on the ground war, the magazine said.

Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., told FoxNews.com that he wasn’t surprised to hear a possible protest connection to the non-profit women’s health organization.

“I wouldn’t be shocked that this group is going the extra mile to undermine the legitimate transfer of power,” he said. “It comes into question whether they are using taxpayer money appropriately or even legally. This goes above and beyond their duty and ability to provide services for women.”

Other liberal groups have also apparently used the online classified ad site as a means to fuel protests.

MoveOn.org identified themselves in a New York ad, offering $18 an hour and specifying: “We only want protesters under the age of 30 … We prefer minorities.”

Trump and the Black Vote

Posted November 19, 2016 By John C Wright

I was fascinated by this interview by Stephan Molyneux (who, and I am sure he will be perturbed by the comparison, sort of reminds me of me) with Donald Trump’s harbingers, Diamond and Silk.

If You Can Keep It

Posted November 17, 2016 By John C Wright

At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, when queried as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation, Ben Franklin was asked by a lady, “Well, doctor, which is it to be? A monarchy or a republic?” to which he replied, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it.”

The enemies of the republican form of government, and the foes of the human spirit, know very well how to make a society throw its legacy away: merely by teaching the young that being safe, especially being safe from dangerous ideas, is a treasure more precious than freedom.

Raise a generation of fatherless and weak boys to be cowardly men, and vain girls to be selfish and immodest women, and the enemy has done his work. He has vanquished the Union without ever raising a flag, winding a trumpet, or drawing a saber.

The students educated in an Orwellian environment of being protected against all discourse and discord will emerge thinking such things are normal and right, and they will love Big Brother.  They will kiss the gyves and manacles being bolted to their limbs.

From PJ Media:

The artistic genius behind the highly acclaimed conservative satirical site The People’s Cube has been arrested and released on $8,000 bail for putting up pro-Israel posters to combat a pro-Islamist conference at George Mason University. He now faces the prospect of five years in prison for allegedly committing a “class 6 felony.”

Beloved satirist Oleg Atbashian (who has contributed to PJ Media) has gotten in trouble for defying authorities before: “Back in my Soviet dissident days, when I was collecting signatures in defense of Andrei Sakharov, I was screamed at, threatened, and lectured by the KGB and Communist functionaries,” Oleg says. “What I never imagined was that in the United States, the land of the free, I would not only be subjected to similar treatment, but go to jail.”

A Correction

Posted November 16, 2016 By John C Wright

I don’t like to admit I am wrong at the bottom of a long comment thread, when I can do it in public and take my humiliation like a man, but I am wrong when I said this:

Without identity politics, the Alt-Right are no different from Tea Party or from Goldwater conservatives. They are just honest men annoyed at Political Correctness, as all honest men should be.

A read with the erudite yet warlike name of Scholar at Arms writes:

I respectfully disagree. They are “alt” to mainstream conservatism, which has been dragged leftwards, chiefly by National Review. More mainstream conservatives like Bill Whittle refusing to burn incense to the Left’s PC gods and confronting the Pajama Boys like Goldberg & Beck who do would do great things for building relations between Conservatism & the alt-Right.

I confess you have the better of me here. I respectfully accept the correction.

“Conservative” used to mean the people who are not RINO uni-party left-leaning Rockefeller Republicans, and referred to Goldwater Republicans. In fact “conservative” was the term we used to distinguish ourselves from the RINOs.

After Trump was nominated, the parties changed. Or, rather, a change that had been long in the making became visible to the general public. Instead of Democrats versus Republicans, we now had the uniparty of the Globalists, consisting of the Dems and the treasonous Republican establishment on the one had versus on the other hand the Americans, the Trump Republicans, Libertarians, and Alt-Right.

However, for so long as Milo Yiannopoulos and Donald Trump use the word “conservative” to refer to themselves, I shall also, despite the obvious ambiguity and limitations of that term.

I also would like to see good relations between the Conservatives and Alt-Right, and so will try to keep my criticisms of them, in any, confined to private circles, for the same reason that I think arguments about denominational differences between Christians should be held outside of the range of heathen ears.

(In fact, I think I will edit the column and remove remarks best kept private.)
