Morality is a weapon. Hierarchy is a constant. And the will to power can never be removed, only expressed in different ways.
Thus it is that in the Current Year, facing what is (for once) The Most Important Election In Our Lifetime, we aren’t discussing issues like immigration, health care, or foreign policy. Instead, the critical issues of our time are whether Donald Trump was rude to a sociopathic whore decades ago or whether he engaged in lewd talk about women in a private conversation.
Like most of the smear campaigns against the Republican nominee, the first story is nonsense. Alicia Machado, a former beauty pageant winner, put on 60 pounds after her victory and apparently Donald Trump criticized her. In anything resembling a real nation, rather than a crumbling shopping mall writ large, the person who even brings up this trivia would be stripped of the franchise.
But the decline is in the details and there’s something revealing about all this. Like most of those who are held up as heroes today, Alicia Machado is being blessed by the priests of weakness in the media because of her worst qualities. We know she cheated on her fiancé (on television), was involved with a Mexican drug lord and probably had his daughter, and may have been involved in a murder. Yet this is the person Hillary Clinton is holding up as a hero and a new valuable addition to our national family. All because she violated a contract and couldn’t restrain from gorging herself like an animal.
Eldritch abomination Lindy West, who with each fetid breath proves Spengler was right and that the West is already dead, called for fat people to “rise up,” not to get exercise, but to join with nonwhites and defeat Trump.
While nonwhites are born members of the Coalition of the Oppressed, Whites become part of the Rising American Electorate only when they define themselves through some form of degeneracy. Not surprisingly, if they can’t just switch races entirely, they simply come up with increasingly outlandish faux-identities.
Even as we are lectured that we as Whites have no culture, have no identity aside from oppression, and did not create the (former) greatness of Western nations, we are still held responsible for every failing of nonwhite people throughout the entire world. Many of the worst atrocities such as newly invented genders, redefining yourself as some kind of animal or whatever other form of psychopathy will be tomorrow’s civil rights crusade is a kind of cry for help. Weak Whites are desperately trying to break away from being considered part of the officially hated group.
But there’s another form of escape, which is the retreat into some kind of “principled” morality which is designed not to hold people to their duty, but to allow them to escape from it. Which brings us to the second “scandal,” Donald Trump talking about hitting on women in a private conversation.
Like the useless and despicable cucks that they are, the likes of Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and Jeb Bush have fallen all over themselves to virtue signal. The lying press is openly pressuring Donald Trump to drop out of the race. And the feminists are claiming this conversation itself constitutes “assault.”
This is impossible to take seriously. All of this faux outrage is being ginned up to help Hillary Clinton, whom we know exists only because she latched on to the coattails of her lecherous husband and helped conceal his crimes. Bill Clinton’s career was only saved because his defenders during the impeachment trial convinced the public the scandal was about sex with an intern, an act which, even if consensual, would get your average middle manager somewhere brought up on charges of sexual harassment or simply fired (if he’s lucky.)
We’re told that we must always “listen and believe,” even by Hillary herself, even though Juanita Broaddrick has maintained for years she was raped by the former president. As Joe Eszterhas noted in American Rhapsody, a poll taken soon after Broaddrick was interviewed with Lisa Myers showed over 80 percent of Americans thought the president of the United States was a rapist – but his approval ratings remained high.
With Bill Clinton’s scandals, the excuse was “everybody lies about sex.” This isn’t really true. It only seems that way in the cesspool on the Potomac, which really should be renamed so as to stop disgracing the Father of Our Country. But in most of the country, not everyone is an adulterer, a rake, or some kind of a pervert.
That said, there is not a single adult man or woman alive, no matter how Christian, sheltered, or principled, who has not had a conversation or bull session about sex and relationships he or she wouldn’t want made public. Every single person claiming to be outraged by this is arguing in bad faith.
Indeed, the wildly disproportionate reaction about this conversation is a society-wide case of “doth protest too much.” These swine are feigning shock because they are all guilty. Find me one DC journalist whose relationship would survive a significant other seeing his or her browser history, let alone transcripts of all conversations.
The fact Donald Trump is being crucified because of a taped private conversation more than a decade old is a condemnation of our entire contemptible society. To use the parlance of our time, he dindu nuffin. He is being convicted for thoughtcrime.
Weimerica is in no position to be moralizing about this. In a media-saturated culture, the dominant public “morality” is simply what our press tells us to be outraged about. Our celebrities, America’s closest equivalent to aristocracy, are slightly less subtle versions of prostitutes, marketed to children. Our institutions of higher learning turn out hapless and incompetent graduates with carefully cultivated neuroses to be used as weapons against their fellow citizens in a culture and economy based on weakness and artificial victimhood. We’re on the brink of war with Russia, which the press tells us is an enemy because the Orthodox masses aren’t properly enthusiastic enough about America’s highest national value of sodomy. And the party of Bill Clinton and Anthony Weiner is now being hailed as the stern guardian of public morality. To use Paul Ryan’s phrase, that is “who we are” as a nation in the Current Year.
Morality is a tool to be used to destroy foes. Just as aristocrats of the past were carefully trained in sophisticated etiquette to keep down their social inferiors and compete against their equals, so our elite uses the rhetoric of egalitarianism to defend their position. Every society is hypocritical, but it was left to the modern post-Western world to be completely defined by duplicity.
Consider the case of (((Mark Cuban))). His family name was changed from Chabenisky to Cuban after his family fled Russia to inflict us with their presence. Cuban made the bulk of his money by cashing out of Yahoo at the right time near the end of the tech boom. In terms of style, Cuban adopted the kind of “dudebro” lifestyle condemned as inherently immoral by the Left. Despite being a billionaire, he dresses in t-shirts. He’s a pornographer and publicly claimed: “Girls Gone Wild” did not objectivity women, something which is rationally more “sexist” than anything Trump did. He taunts Trump not for being too right wing, but for not being rich enough.
Yet Cuban is spared from the outrage culture and is now a trusted surrogate for the Hillary Clinton campaign. Cuban initially praised Trump’s run for office and even expressed openness to being Trump’s running mate. But Cuban switched sides, ostensibly because he didn’t think Trump understood nuclear deterrence.
It’s hard to take this seriously. More likely, Cuban took a hard look at the financial blowback Trump suffered after condemning illegal immigration and made a cynical decision. Indeed, he now smirks that Trump has destroyed his brand and will be bankrupt within a few years if he does not win. He might be right. If Trump does lose, he will have to bend the knee in some form to save the family business for his children.
Like in the Roman civil wars at the fall of the Republic, today it’s all about making sure you are on the right side. And because Cuban chose to align with the president Weimerica deserves, he is held up as a business expert, a respected political pundit and even some kind of a moral leader.
There’s a great deal of debate about what does and does not constitute the Alt Right and who properly belongs in or out of the movement. I’d add one essential characteristic that makes the Alt Right distinct from paleoconservativism, White nationalism, or National Socialism – a dominant sense of cynicism. No one who is on the Alt Right can honestly say he or she is fighting to save a System and a power structure which is basically healthy. The Alt Right is a culture of critique against the hegemonic liberal and anti-White Narrative and the institutions which perpetuate it. Even George Lincoln Rockwell had more faith in the American government than any anonymous shitposter.
Whatever you were first “redpilled” on - sex, race, Jewish privilege, American foreign policy, the conservative movement – all of it begins with the same terrible realization. They are lying to us. They are lying to us not because they actually believe this nonsense, but because it allows them to expand their own power. Since they only benefit if we believe what they are telling us, we should instinctively distrust them.
This is why so much of chan culture, which was such an important influence on the Alt Right, was built upon laughing at the “moralfags.” It was a recognition their bromides were a scam. Indeed, the only people who actually do seem to believe the ideals underlying liberal democracy on their own terms are American conservatives, who are eternal losers that can serve only as gullible fools or controlled opposition.
This is not to say we are without idealism. We have a vision of hierarchy, of glory, of the upward path. But in what used to be our country, what should be sacred is cast in the dirt and what belongs in the gutter is trumpeted as an ideal. Our idealism is fueled by this terrible sense of betrayal, the raging fury that the institutions and figures who were supposed to secure our future have abandoned their responsibility and betrayed their duty.
Donald Trump, for all his faults, is a better man than anyone in the political class. Our own supposed leaders proudly boast they are plotting our deliberate destruction. The people who talk the most about “propriety” and “tone” are the same people who have unleashed death and chaos in pointless wars around the world.
“Morality?” Today, it’s just a shit test on a global scale, a public relations campaign, a marketing scam. To see a “Republican strategist” or a Beltway journalist pontificate about decorum is self-discrediting. To see the same people who celebrate the Folsom Street Fair suddenly clutch their pearls is revolting. It’s not about being “beyond good and evil” or denying standards. It’s about not falling for this same old con anymore.
