France’s Front National wins Senate seats for first time

The far-right resurgence in Europe continues apace, with France’s “Front National” party winning seats to that country’s Senate for the first time ever this past weekend when Stéphane Ravier from Marseilles and David Rachline from Fréjus pulled of the historic wins, according to the UK’s Guardian:

The two seats are both in the FN’s stronghold in southern France, and at 26 Rachline, the mayor of Fréjus, is the youngest French senator ever elected.

The result marks a third humiliating electoral defeat for the Socialist party, which has been punished by disillusioned voters while support for the FN has surged. Le Pen’s party won control of a dozen municipalities in elections last March, including the 7th district in Marseilles where Ravier was elected mayor.

It also came top in the European elections two months later, when it knocked the centre-right UMP into second place.

With the failures of Francois Hollande’s socialist government, including such highlights as Hollande’s 13 percent approval rating, government “budget woes”, “record joblessness” and “zero growth”, it’s no wonder a far-right resurgence is currently underway in France. And while the Guardian highlights those mostly economic concerns, much of this resurgence can probably be thanked to a cultural counter-revolution taking place in France in recent years.

Revolving around a movement known as “Generation Identaire“, a cultural counterrevolution has arose rallying against the multicultural component of contemporary leftism. In 2011, a video was launched expressing the groups ideals. Add into these contemporary movements the prescient vision of Jean Raspail and it’s no surprise that Front National is winning.

For Front National, the next step is the presidency, according to the same Guardian report:

Referring to the presidency after his election to the senate, Ravier said: “There’s just one more door to open, the Elysée. In 2017 we’ll have Marine Le Pen to do it.”

Le Pen, according to some projections, would currently beat Hollande in the next presidential election in 2017. For Le Pen, the continued string of victories is a positive sign for herself and her party:

Le Pen hailed her party’s success as a “great victory, an absolutely historic victory” which she said would represent a “breath of fresh air in a rather sleepy chamber”.

“With every day that passes, our ideas are making progress,” she told BFMTV, predicting further gains for the FN in the forthcoming territorial and regional elections.

It’s an interesting thought that France, the country and society that lead the world down the road to democracy, may be the one that leads us out of the mess that democracy has become over the last 250 years. But with these wins, and other contemporary accounts of the French refusing to be cowed by Islamic extremism, it may appear that once again, the French will lead (some parts) of the world in a new direction.

Smh. Lol

Feminist declares feminists are winning the culture war

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on September 24, 2014 by FoolishReporter

culture-war

Feminist blogger Penny Red has a breathless announcement everyone: Feminists are fighting a culture war and they’re winning!

This is a culture war. The right side is winning, at great cost. At great personal costs to people like Anita Sarkeesian, Leigh Alexander, Zoe Quinn and even Jennifer Lawrence, and countless others who are on the frontlines of creating new worlds for women, for girls, for everyone who believes that stories matter and there are too many still untold. We are winning. We are winning because we are more resourceful, more compassionate, more culturally aware. We’re winning because we know what it’s like to fight through adversity, through shame and pain and constant reminders of our own worthlessness, and come up punching. We know we’re winning because the terrified rage of a million mouthbreathing manchild misogynists is thick as nerve gas in the air right now.

Ms Red is writing in response to the various fallouts from the events collectively known as #GamerGate and #TheFappening. For those unfamiliar with either, the former relates to a circle of corruption uncovered within gaming journalism, when it was discovered that the aforementioned Quinn may have used her feminine wiles to gain positive reviews of a game she made. It’s fall-out has extended to 4Chan, which users say has seen an intense restriction of speech wholly alien to the chaotic image board, and has lead many to declare that 4Chan is dead. (We’ll come back to this shortly.)

#TheFappening was the celebrity nude leak earlier this year, including leaked nudes of Lawrence and a number of others. That incident lead to a story in which The Daily Caller claims an “advertised” nude leak of actress Emily Watson (Hermione Granger from Harry Potter) was actually a PR stunt to try and exert the government to shutdown 4Chan outright. According to the DC, one of the websites that people were redirected to contained a letter addressed to the President:

DEAR BARACK OBAMA:

We have been hired by celebrity publicists to bring this disgusting issue to attention. The recent 4chan celebrity nude leaks in past 2 months have been an invasion of privacy and is also a clear indication that the internet NEEDS to be censored. Every Facebook like, share & Twitter mention will count as a social signature – and will be (a) step closer to shutting down http://www.4chan.org

So just keep in mind that killing free speech and outright calls for censoring the Internet are part of the fallout from #GamerGate and #TheFappening.

Back to Ms. Red… You see, according to her, those “million mouthbreathing manchild misogynists” are actually the ones looking to limit free speech:

They believe that they are justified because freedom of speech-  except not freedom of speech for women and queers and people of colour, because those people don’t really speak, they just whine, shriek, scream, like animals, because really that’s all they are, animals.

To be honest, I’m unaware of any gamer types calling for the end of free speech. But, as we can clearly see above, Ms Red and her ideologically aligned opponents are more than happy to call for the end of dissenting speech. LOL.

Ms. Red also notes that again, these “million mouthbreathing manchild misogynysts” are guilty of making her, and her SJW comrades, into “faceless opponents,” :

The gamification of misogyny predates the internet, but right now, in this world full of angry, broken, lost young men convinced that women have robbed them of some fundamental win in life, it’s rampant.

The trouble is that treating other human beings like faceless opponents doesn’t work in the real world.

Gender isn’t a game you can play and win by brutalising and harassing and shaming and hurting the other ‘side.’  Ultimately, there is no other side.

LOL.

Enough with that for now though. Ms. Red is absolutely correct that there’s a culture war going on, and her assessment that one side’s war can be characterized as a string of Pyrrhic victories is also correct. The problem is, as we see, that she thinks it’s her side that’s actually winning the war and not just gaining those Pyrrhic victories.

No, in reality, her side is winning because of institutional power and the unique decentralized networking that characterizes leftist activist politics. They are winning because they can exert a level of force that their opponents can’t. One of the signs of their victory that she pointed out is telling regarding the institutional power they have access to:

They can’t understand why, just for example, when my friend, the games critic and consultant Leigh Alexander, was abused and ‘called out’ as an unprofessional slut, a lying cunt, morally and personally corrupt, just for speaking truthfully and beautifully about all of this, it was Alexander who was invited to write her first piece for Time magazine, Alexander who got to define the agenda for the mainstream, who received praise and recognition…

(Hint: Those organizations are ideologically aligned with you, nothing more, nothing less. The “rightness” of your perspective isn’t confirmed by their ideological predisposition to your politics.)

The thing is, in this Culture War, the left is the one winning Pyrrhic victories. They may be self-congratulatory with each scalp they take, but people remember. People will remember it wasn’t the Footloose preacher archetype that invaded an already existing culture and browbeat it into submission, it was people like Quinn and Ms. Red who destroyed something that wasn’t theirs just because it had a habit of hurting their feelings. It wasn’t a Christian Evangelical calling for the complete shutdown of the Internet phenomenon known as 4Chan, but rather celebrity elites and feminists.

As already mentioned, Ms. Red is absolutely right that a full-blown Culture War is underway right now. But, if one looks around to different parts of the world, and even here in the U.S., Ms. Red may want to hedge her bets on which side is winning. Like the old adage says, “be careful what you wish for.”

#GamerGate Dox Allegedly Released: @Nero, @AdamBaldwin targeted?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on September 24, 2014 by FoolishReporter

There’s a screenshot of alleged dox of some of the right-leaning protagonists of #GamerGate going around. This imgur link shows a significant portion of these alleged dox, with all relevant information whited out. A Reddit thread also picked up on this, with a partial screenshot of the alleged dox.

A search of pastebin shows no results when searching the full title shown in the imgur post, so who knows? It is certainly within the left’s playbook to dox people who piss them off, as seen by Anonymous/Occupy etc a few years ago.

Stay tuned, lol.

The 4Chan Diaspora

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on September 23, 2014 by FoolishReporter

IMG_6420

With the infiltration of 4Chan by SJW-types, the regular users of the Internet’s most controversial website now find themselves scattered to the four corners of the Interwebz. As the poster in the photo above noted, 4Chan regulars are now literally “the Jews of the Internet.”

With their dispersal, it appears that 4Chan-ers are ending up in weird places. In the comment section of this breathlessly titled WaPo piece “4Chan’s latest, terrible ‘prank': Convincing West Africans that Ebola doctors actually worship the disease” the finest traditions of 4Chan are continuing on. Here are some of the more lulzy comments on the story so far:

Ebola-chan cannot continue to gain power and blood. She must be stopped before the Blood Holocaust reaches Israel. As someone who lost both parents, several cousins and a cat in Holocaust, I cannot bear the thought of Holocaust II: Revenge of the Sick.

They are our greatest ally.

–Ray Swarmau

Ebola chan is not a joke. She is the divine goddess that will deliver us the glorious african continent cleansed of monkey trouble.

–Jeff Zwier

I love you Ebola-Chan!-<3

–Anonymous2547

I LOVE YOU EBOLA-CHAN!

–bundle of sticks

As a Jew and Holocaust survivor, I find it deeply offensive that websites such as 4Chan, specifically /pol/, is allowed to exist. I know from my source that much of its financial source comes from Iran. Therefore, USA must bomb Israel. Thank G-d for Israel.

–Shoa Bernsteinberg

(toplel at that name)

I used to think that this website with this antisemitism could lead to another shoah. In Ebola-chan I actually see as a positive shift, now they embrace love, love of an evil virus, sure, but ebola makes everyone equal. Ebola doesn’t play favorites. Ebola is unconditional. If they want to worship Ebola instead of hatred, let them. We should encourage them. Good luck Ebola-chan! I love you Ebola-chan! Thank you Ebola-chan!

–Chaim Finestein

The blood cult is real and so is the threat of Ebola. My friend had tried getting into that mess but it had cursed him. Paul’s family will never be the same after the shrine he had made in his closet caused a fire and destroyed more than half their home. I can only hope these demon worshippers get a painful genocide because that’s what only bad people get.

–Holac Bane

In short, LULZ.

What’s interesting about this idea of a 4Chan diaspora is that it shows, once again, the unintended consequences of SJW’s. Our brave social justice warriors took a major scalp in the PC wars with their displacement and replacement of the culture of 4Chan. Unfortunately, it means that those same people that the SJWs can’t stand are going to start popping up in much more civilized parts of the Internet, dropping comments like the ones shown above.

I mean, seriously. This allegedly horrific insanity that’s full of “hate” and “racism” and “sexism” and “xenophobia”was confined to 4Chan, and almost everyone who visited that site regularly was fine with it. It was a strangely self-governing “society” if you will, and those who were there wanted to be there. 

But, as always, the leftist thought police couldn’t leave well enough alone. Just remember that. It wasn’t some right wing christian group that effectively defeated 4Chan, it was a number of retarded feminists and the eunuch men who orbit around them. More and more, it’s becoming evident that the left are the moral busybodies WHO MUST INVADE EVERYTHING THEY DON’T AGREE WITH.

Good times.

White Identity as the Ultimate Alinsky Tactic

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on September 22, 2014 by FoolishReporter

The fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity. 

–Saul Alinsky, “Rules for Radicals”

As the pressures of egalitarianism and multiculturalism mount, the Left will be increasingly hard pressed to deny white people a right to expression of group identity. Within an American context, every group is allowed free and full expression of group identity without any negative overtones or consequences. Blacks have the NAACP, Black Panthers etc. Latinos have groups like La Raza and MEChA. Jews have the ADL, AIPAC etc, while Muslims have CAIR and so on and so forth.

That’s why, in some respects, the growth of white identity throughout the world ends up being an ultimate Alinsky tactic against the Left. Replace the word “Christian” and “Christianity” with leftists and leftism, and the tactic applies just as well. The left can’t endlessly preach about groups having the right to identity expression while conspicuously denying the same right to white people.

Over in Europe, the expression of white identity has been gaining steam in recent years. This Generation Identaire video is excellent, and has sparked a legitimate movement in France:

And from Sweden:

In both instances, they do seem to be operating from Alinsky’s rule above. They are asserting their right to group identity, and are also playing within the rules created for them by the Left. It’s this approach that probably needs to be applied here in America.

Within an American context, white identity is full of negative connotations. KKK, Neo-Nazis, Aryan Brotherhood etc. The boogiest of the boogeymen. (Although, except for a few exceptions in recent years, few people seem to ever point out that these groups do exactly what they preach: they separate themselves from the groups they find undesirable and live their lives how they see fit. As anyone who pays attention to this stuff knows though, that’s not the Official Narrative regarding those groups.)

Working within our American context, one of the biggest roadblocks to expressions of white identity is the perception that all groups that would fall under this title tend to define themselves, and are defined, in terms of negation. The most boiled down characterization of these groups can probably be expressed as: People of Color = BAD!

Admittedly, many do express their identity in that way, which leaves them open to easy criticism. Therefore, an adjustment in tactics seems needed. Working within Alinsky’s rule, I would argue that what needs to happen for white identity to succeed in America is for it to be positively framed. Instead of “FUCK NIGGERS AND ZOG”, the message should be closer to the one that opened this post. It’s alright to be proud of your group, and it’s also perfectly normal and healthy to express that pride. (In fact, one researcher found that ethnocentrism may be biologically influenced, at least to some extent.)

This is going to be a difficult task, however. Even when presented with positive imagery regarding white identity, many people (spanning the whole political spectrum) seem to exhibit a pretty strong conditioned response. Their negative emotions regarding the idea of white identity override their brains, and even when it’s positive expressions, they will still reflexively respond with emotions ranging from discomfort to outright disgust.

And while I personally believe the Diversity = White Genocide argument is a bit overstated, there have been more sober statements regarding the negative effects of multiculturalism and capitulation of group identity, this one coming from Claude Levi-Strauss:

[Humanity] will have to relearn that all true creation implies some deafness to the call of other values, which may reach the point of rejecting or even negating them. One cannot at the same time melt away in the enjoyment of the Other, identify oneself with the Other, and keep oneself different. If fully successful, complete communication with the Other will doom its creative originality and my own in more or less short time. The great creative ages were those when communication had increased to the point that distant partners stimulated each other but not so often and rapidly that the indispensable obstacles between individuals, and likewise, between groups, dwindled to the point that excessively easy exchanges would equalize and blend away their diversity.

It’s hard not to argue that Levi-Strauss’ perception was wrong. The fact that a term like “wigger” even exists tells us all we need to know about the state of white identity in America.

In closing, my fellow blue-eyed devils, don’t feel afraid to tell people that:

The Battle for 4Chan has been lost…according to 4Chan

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on September 19, 2014 by FoolishReporter

The fallout from GamerGate continues to ripple outward, this time catching the once seemingly invincible 4chan. No matter the content, the wildly politically incorrect threads or…well any other madness that sprang up from the board, no one had successfully fought off 4chan yet.

Until some of the principles from GamerGate, namely Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian, are believed to have been exerting influence on Christopher “Moot” Pool. According to a number of 4Chan users, within the last week, a considerable swath of long-time mods were let go and new mods were installed, at which time users on both /v/ and /pol/ started noticing a lot of bans and deleted threads. One Twitter user made a connection between one of the new mods and Quinn:

screencapoftweets

The connection to Sarkeesian comes from screengrabs as well.

Within the last day, several Facebook pages concerned with the story posted updates from what was happening on 4Chan:

FBupdate

The birthplace of Anonymous, of Internet memes, of Internet horror and hilarity… is officially dead, according to those who loved it the most, it’s users. In typical 4chan style, the memes have already begun:

4chanandmmot

polupdate

polvsSWJs

It’s interesting to watch the institutional left insert it’s tentacles into places that have been free of their touch, especially one as anarchic and non-pc as 4Chan. One 4Chan user ruefully posted on the demise of one of the Internet’s most controversial but beloved spaces:

YoureFired

Welp, after three years in a job I mostly enjoyed immensely, I’ve been let go. So, if you’re looking for a writer/reporter with experience ranging from high school sports to politics to covering local government to social media management… I am definitely your man!

Here’s to hoping this is just a short interruption.

Salud!
