Over the target, it seems

Milo – MILO, of all people – is receiving pushback from the followers of St. Jordan the Never-Sleeping because he wrote the Foreword to Jordanetics: A Journey Into the Mind of Humanity’s Greatest Thinker:

Gage Martinez
It seems like milo just doesn’t like that jordan took his place when milo stopped doing well reasoned debates and started focusing instead on being “outrageous”.

i have followed you for about 2 years now. I have loved watching you tell people to screw off and being yourself. Today i will be unfollowing you. I may check on you from time to time. Reason. From the description of this book, it nothing but a hit piece on a good and honest, and yes imperfect man. I will read your forward and possibly this book. Though i doubt I’ll get to the book.

Craig Mac Corkle
You usually do have an interesting point of view, and I’m not sure that I’m understanding this one. But I’ll take a look at it. It’s just doesn’t make any sense to me but best of luck with it. Dont know Vox. But i like JBP, and the IDW. These people have amazing credentials, but aren’t infallible, or afraid of criticism. I don’t know, seems like a strange move.

William Cuddling
No one’s dismissing you out of hand. Fact is, judging from the statements you’ve made publicly about Peterson, your point of view just isn’t that interesting, so why would anyone wanna buy a book, the synopsis of which reads like an introduction to just another in a lone line of bullshit hit-pieces, just so we have the honor of reading your foreword? Personally couldn’t care less if you go after Peterson. Just sick of your whining.

Matt Malone
Theres plenty to criticize about Peterson, but Milo just seems peeved when anyone get more attention than him. Ben Shapiro has also leapfrogged Milo and rightfully so, much more thoughtful commentator… The right criticizes the left for their purity spirals where they will turn on anyone who deviates from their orthodoxy, but Milo is pretty similar. The left seems self righteous when they do it but Milo just seems petty. Overall he is deleterious to any positions he holds, and its no wonder noone wants to associate with him.

Jason Murray Alaina Toledo
I see a man that isnt afraid to admit that he doesn’t know all the answers and will concede that he is wrong when faced with evidence of such. There is nothing wrong with JBP and he doesn’t deserve to be attacked as a lair or hypocrite, when all that he is doing is trying to do is help us all to see that the world has rules, and that we should try to live by them, for the well being of the individual and though the individual, society as a whole. You should really listen to everything he has to say before drawing conclusions.

John Tangney
Vox day has always seemed like a total Muppet to me, and his criticisms of Peterson based in jealousy rather than anything substantive.

Justin Grajek
Jealous of his popularity Milo? His views are nuanced and thoughtful instead of emotion driven. I don’t think you can say the same.

Nalinne Jones
Lame. Unfollowing.

Halldór Magnússon
Milo, you are putting it up like one has to choose between you and Peterson. I am sorry but it’s an unfair competition, you lose big time which is so not necessary, you can be on the same team. If you want fewer followers then continue on this road.

Sean Grabill
So, you get neutered and you have to neuter someone else to get your revenge? You used to have important things to say and then you started crawling into the gutter with the left. It seems like you lost yourself down there and the limelight became more important than the things that used to matter. It wasn’t so long ago you were the one we were all supposed to hate, but you’ve forgotten all too soon what that was like, or maybe that’s what made you so bitter. If this is the end of your movie, cry into a $100 bill, and ride off into the sunset, have some grace. You were better than associating yourself with this garbage. Is that still in you or have they just taken the piss right out of you?

It’s funny, but all these comments sound almost identical to the comments left in response to one of my Jordanetics videos on the Darkstream. It’s really remarkable how so many people are so bitter, jealous, and envious that they are inspired to criticize St. Jordan of the Cider.


Cue Potato Famine 2.0

Free speech advocates celebrate! The Irish can now blaspheme freely!

Ireland has voted to remove a reference to blasphemy as a punishable offense from the country’s constitution, paving the way for repeal of a law that criminalizes public utterances judged offensive to religious sensibilities.

It is becoming increasingly obvious that the true battle is neither Left vs Right nor even Globalist vs Nationalist, but rather Christianity vs Satanism in all its many guises.


They can’t say I didn’t warn them

In addition to being cut off by Paypal, Gab is down again. A number of readers have emailed to tell me about this Twitter post:

Breaking: @joyent, Gab’s new hosting provider, has just pulled our hosting service. They have given us until 9am on Monday to find a solution. Gab will likely be down for weeks because of this. Working on solutions. We will never give up on defending free speech for all people.

If you recall, the original cause of my break with Gab and Andrew Torba was due to his absolute refusal to eliminate the criminal and pornographic material that infested the site. I told him that it wasn’t about me or my preference for not being libeled, it was something that he was going to have to do if he wanted Gab to remain operational. I even offered to design a game-style moderation system that would have eliminated any need for an Orwellian Trust & Safety Council of the sort that Twitter, Facebook, and Indiegogo presently utilize.

And we all know how that ended. Instead of listening to me, Torba responded by calling me a crybaby for protesting his free-speech defense of the Alt-Retards who were not only libeling me, but also posting images of a woman being gang-raped by Africans with my wife’s head photoshopped onto it on Gab.

So, I have absolutely no sympathy whatsoever for either Gab or Torba. I was confident that Torba’s stubbornness, volatility, and lack of professionalism was eventually going to sink the site, and it’s more than a little appropriate that it should be Gab’s connection to the very Alt-Retards he defended so assiduously that is proving to be its primary vulnerability to those seeking to destroy it.

Regardless, the entire Right is going to have to divorce itself from the techno-Left, and it will have to do so sooner rather than later. A number of people are already working on solutions to everything from the domain registrations to the payment processors, but in the meantime, get off Twitter, get off Facebook, get off Wikipedia, and start using alternatives such as Oneway, Idka, and Infogalactic. We can, and we will, rout around these artificial barriers being imposed by the converged technology giants, but it’s going to take time, patience, and effort. And most of all, it’s going to require the willingness to actually leave the enemy sites.

In that vein, it’s important to understand the SJW’s Code of Conduct offensive in the Open Source space is intended to deny us the ability to do that. But remember, they can only win if you give up and submit.


Darkstream: A Journey Into the Mind of Humanity’s Greatest Thinker

From the transcript of the Darkstream:

Q: I’m not sure about this Vox guy. I was reading a Scott Adams blog about systems and watching a Prophet Peterson video about falsehoods, it’s all very complex.
A: Well, that’s true, because remember, falsehoods have consequences and that’s what makes them false. So deep! I’ve been having a good time figuring out which Peterson quotes to use for the chapter heading quotes, you know he has some real humdingers.

Q: Did the book just flow?
A: You know, most nonfiction books come pretty easily to me. This was particularly easy because I had the help of a friend of mine who did a lot of the initial heavy lifting and that worked pretty well.

Q: Any illustrations in the book?
A: Yes, of course. Ethan Van Sciver has graciously provided us with a number of illustrations for the book, so we think that that will be a really big deal.

#MEGOOGLE

A complete SJW fail at Google has infuriated Googlers:

At Google’s weekly staff meeting Thursday, the top question employees voted to ask Larry Page, a co-founder, and Sundar Pichai, the chief executive, was one about sexual harassment.

“Multiple company actions strongly indicate that protection of powerful abusers is literally and figuratively more valuable to the company than the well-being of their victims,” read the question, which was displayed at the meeting, according to people who attended. “What concrete and meaningful actions will be taken to turn this around?”

The query was part of an outpouring from Google employees after a New York Times article published Thursday reported how the company had paid millions of dollars in exit packages to male executives accused of misconduct and stayed silent about their transgressions. In the case of Andy Rubin, creator of Android mobile software, the company gave him a $90 million exit package even after Google had concluded that a misconduct claim against him was credible.

While tech workers, executives and others slammed Google for the revelations, nowhere was condemnation of the internet giant’s actions more pointed than among its own employees.

I don’t know why anyone is even remotely surprised. Male feminists always behave badly around women. If they understood women or knew how to behave around them, they wouldn’t be male feminists.

I do enjoy that rank stink of SJW hypocrisy in the evening.


Preorder JORDANETICS

Jordan Peterson is believed by many to be the greatest thinker that humanity has ever known. He is Father Figure, Philosopher-King, and Prophet to the millions of young men who are his most fervent fans. He is the central figure of the Intellectual Dark Web, an academic superstar, and an unparalleled media phenomenon who has shattered all conceptions of what it means to be modern celebrity in the Internet Age.

He has, by his own admission, thought thoughts that no one has ever thought before. He has dreamed dreams that no one has ever dared to dream before.

But Jordan Peterson is also a narcissist, a charlatan, and an intellectual con man who doesn’t even bother to learn much about the subjects upon which he lectures. He is a defender of free speech who silences other speakers, a fearless free-thinker who runs away from debate, difficult questions, and controversial issues, a philosopher who rejects the conventional definition of truth, and a learned professor who has failed to read most of the great classics of the Western canon. He is, in short, a shameless and unrepentant fraud.

But is Jordan Peterson more than a mere fraud? Is he something more sinister, more unbalanced, and even more dangerous? In JORDANETICS: A Journey Into the Mind of Humanity’s Greatest Thinker, political philosopher Vox Day delves deeply into the core philosophy that Jordan Peterson advocates in both his written works and his video lectures. In doing so, Day methodically builds a shocking case that will convince even the most skeptical Jordan Peterson supporter to reconsider both the man and his teachings.

Featuring a Foreword by Milo Yiannopoulos, the ebook edition of JORDANETICS will be released by Castalia House on November 19, 2018. A paperback edition will be published before Christmas.


Shooting in Squirrel Hill

Apparently the Fake Bombs didn’t work, so Plan B is in effect:

Eight people have been killed and a number of others injured after a shooting situation at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill on Saturday. KDKA’s Meghan Schiller reports that a suspect, a heavy-set white male with a beard, has surrendered. The SWAT team had been talking with the suspect, and he was crawling and injured. It is unclear the extent of his injuries.

Shooting people is bad and all bad things are caused by the bad orange man calling the media fake, therefore all good-thinking people must vote for Democrats. It is science.

UPDATE: KDKA sources confirm to Andy Sheehan that the suspect’s name is Robert Bowers.


The logic of revolution

Peter Grant directs us to an interesting essay on the logic of revolutions, and how it applies to the current US situation, by Angelo Codevilla:

The primary objective of any people who find themselves in the throes of a revolution is to find ways of diverting its logic from its worst conclusions.

Prior to the 2016 election I explained how America had already “stepped over the threshold of a revolution,” that it was “difficult to imagine how we might step back, and futile to speculate how it might end.” Regardless of who won the election, its sentiments’ growing “volume and intensity” would empower politicians on all sides sure to make us nostalgic for Donald Trump’s and Hilary Clinton’s moderation. Having begun, this revolution would follow its own logic.

What follows dissects that logic. It has unfolded faster than foreseen. Its sentiments’ spiraling volume and intensity have eliminated any possibility of “stepping back.”

The Democratic Party and the millions it represents having refused to accept 2016’s results; having used their positions of power in government and society to prevent the winners from exercising the powers earned by election; declaring in vehement words and violent deeds the illegitimacy, morbidity, even criminality, of persons and ideas contrary to themselves; bet that this “resistance” would so energize their constituencies, and so depress their opponents’, that subsequent elections would prove 2016 to have been an anomaly and further confirm their primacy in America. The 2018 Congressional elections are that strategy’s first major test.

Regardless of these elections’ outcome, however, this “resistance” has strengthened and accelerated the existing revolutionary spiral. We begin with a primer on such spirals, on the logic of mutual hate that drives them, and on their consequences; move to a general description of our evolution’s driving logic, describe the 2016 elections as the revolutionary spiral’s first turn and the “resistance” thereto as the second. Then we examine how the “resistance” affects the other side, and how this logic might drive our revolution’s subsequent turns.

Codevilla turns back to Thucydides, naturally, in explicating the revolutionary pattern, then rather convincingly points to the 2008 financial crisis as the point at which the US political system was broken and the logic of revolution began to take hold:

The 2008 financial crisis sparked an incipient revolution. Previously, Americans dissatisfied with their Progressive rulers had imagined that voting for Republicans might counter them. But then, as three-fourths of Americans opposed bailing out big banks with nearly a trillion dollars, the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates joined; most Republican legislators joined all Democrats; The Wall Street Journal joined The New York Times, and National Review joined The Nation; in telling Americans that doing this was essential, and that their disapproval counted for nothing. And then, just as high-handedly, all these bipartisan rulers dropped that bailout scheme, and adopted another—just as unaccountably. They showed “government by the people, for the people” to be a fable.

This forced the recognition that there exists a remarkably uniform, bipartisan, Progressive ruling class; that it includes, most of the bureaucracies of federal and state governments, the judiciary, the educational establishment, the media, as well as major corporate officials; that it had separated itself socially, morally, and politically from the rest of society, whose commanding heights it monopolized; above all that it has contempt for the rest of America, and that ordinary Americans have no means of persuading this class of anything, because they don’t count.

As the majority of Americans have become conscious of the differences between this class and themselves they have sought ever more passionately to shake it off. That is the ground of our revolution.

While most observers, including me, were primarily focused on the economic aspects of the situation, Codevilla is correct to point out that the more significant element was the bipartisan response of the elite to completely ignore the clearly expressed will of the electorate. Essentially, what they accomplished in ramming through their rescue of the financial elite was to break the faith of the American and the Fake American peoples in democracy in general and the US political system in particular.

There is no fixing this, any more than one can fix a Christian by repeatedly telling him that God does not exist and Jesus Christ did not die on a cross. One either possesses faith or one does not, and the greater part of the US electorate no longer believes in the political charade performed by both political parties. Therefore, the system will fail and something else, the precise nature of which we do not, and cannot, know, will take its place.
