Charlottesville III- You Win, You Lose

A simple message to the system- you got what you wanted in Charlottesville. And you also laid the charade bare for the whole world.

We played by your rules. Formally permitted political rally, affirmed in its constitutionality by a federal judge. Free speech. The First Amendment, by God! Everybody gets free speech. Voltaire and all that cheap horseshit.

And it’s shut down. Normally judges rule, but even judges get overruled when the system wants something. Antifa attack the UTR crowd as the police watch. A frightened schizophrenic accelerates into a threatening crowd and is charged with murder. The media spins, spins and spins. The entire Republican establishments sides with the communists.

The alt lites and NRx describe it as an awful failure. The antifa double down on the next few “free speech” events and attack “Nazis” who are just regular Trump supporters. It gets so bad that some Democrats actually back off them.

Trump goes with amnesty, and millions of his supporters are humiliated.

If you think in terms of “optics” it looks like a defeat. But it’s really more of a clarifying moment. Millions of people can now see the system hates them, wants them to shut up and die, and will not pay them the least phony courtesy or lip service. There is a huge population of angry people who hoped some kind of democratic change and have been formally told no, not even a dry bone.

I’m not a civic nationalist, but really civic nationalism would be best for America. It permits groups to live and deal with each other in some kind of civilized context- that’s why it’s called “civil”.  But that can’t happen. And if it can’t happen, worse is better, until enough people clearly see what the deal is.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

  3. Dave says:

    Civic nationalism only works if you hold everyone to the same high standard of behavior, killing or sterilizing any who deviate therefrom. Dmitri Belayev did this with foxes — those who played nice with humans were bred, while those who didn’t became fur coats. And Japan did it with people, testing new katanas on those who didn’t measure up.

    If you persistently select for certain traits, you’ll eventually create a new race that “breeds true”, i.e. almost all offspring expressing those traits. Thus, if not overthrown by rebels who think its rules are stupid, civic nationalism evolves into a homogeneous ethno-state.

  4. In this day and age, it seems more sane to carefully pick a jurisdiction that should be more kind- or at least isn’t major league enemy territory, and then stage an event- if at all possible without alerting Antifa.
    Does anyone really need to win on the streets? No. They need to win on youtube.

    The worst part of almost anything is dreading it. Quite a few accounts from men in trench warfare say that going over the top was relief (Ernst Junger even called it the flush of Eros). Most people don’t want violence (especially those who’ve seen it), and the few calling for it usually don’t know what they’re asking for, but there comes a time when bargaining, caviling, hedging, and even reasoning aren’t any better than groveling. When someone strikes you first, it also makes it easier to fight. When you know there’s no legitimate higher mediating force (the police, courts, government, etc.) that is actually going to fairly arbitrate, it also makes it easier to keep your eyes on the battlefield rather than appealing to some indifferent (or hostile) nominal referee. To quote Mills Lane: “Let’s get it on!”
